" - ,-- ' " ' mmmm 111 1 1 1 II--- -a.-M.JSSMSMMIMSsfcMSMISaf I" THERE IS KO SUBSTITUTE FOX TAKES ISSUE WITH FULTON Absolutely Pure IT IS A MATTER OF HEALTH NEW OFFER SUBMITTED Captain Have! Will Sell Fine Brick Building to City for City Hall Purposes. EASY TERMS ARE PROPOSED Agrees to Sell for $23,000, Half of the Amount to Be Paid Down and Balance Within Reasonable Time. Something entirely new and unex pected developed yesterday In the city hall negotiations. Captain George C. ITavel offered the city his fine brick building at the corner of Tenth and Bond streets tor $25,000, and agreed to accept half the amount in cash and the balance at such time as the coun cil may see Its way clear to pay it The council has divided on this offer, about half ot the members favoring It and the others insisting that the new hall be erected. Dr. Alfred Kinney yesterday called upon Councilman Nordstrom to ex press his idea of the city hall propo sition. The doctor called the atten tion of the councilman to the fact that Mr. BTavel had once offered to put his brick building into a sawmill company for 130,000, and he thought perhaps the captain might sell to the city. Mr. Nordstrom saw Captain Flavel, and during the course of the day received the following proposal: Captain Flavel agrees to' sell to the city the building, which cost origin ally between 135,000 and $40,000, and the property upon which It stands, for $25,000. He is willing to accept $12, 600 as a cash payment and to wait for the balance of the money a reasonable length of time, exacting no interest. There is $15,000 in the city hall fund, but Captain Flavel asks a first pay ment of only $12,500 so that the coun cil may have $2500 to fit up the build ing. Favor the Purchase. Said Councilman Nordstrom: "1 be lieve we should accept this offer of Captain Flavel. The council can not put more than $25,000 into a city hall, because it has no greater amount available. The expenditure of so small a sum would provide us at best a tem porary building, which would have to be replaced at some future time. We could not erect a brick or stone build ing for this amount, and therefore could not make a permanent improve ment "If we buy the Flavel building for $25,000, we will know Just what we are getting. The ground and third floods would be sufficient for the pur poses of the city, and we could rent the second floor and receive from this rental Interest on our investment We would have a brick structure large enough for our requirements for 20 years or more, and secure a building more substantial than any we could build tor the amount available. I be lieve the offer to be the best one we have ever had. andvI will favor Its acceptance." Said Mr. Burns: "Well, that is cer tainly a fine proposition. It looks good to me, and I believe we should accept it before Captain Flavel undergoes a change ot opinion. If we can get the Flavel brick for $25,000, we ought to Jump at the offer. I shall favor pur chase of the property." Mr, Belland is quoted by Mr. Nord strom as tavoring the proposal ot Cap tain Flavel. Do Not Favor It. Councilman Hansen is said to be opposed to accepting the proposition. He seems to feel the city should go ahead with the new city hall, and that the brick is not suitable for city hall purposes. Mayor Surprenant is also ot this opinion, and the view is shared by City Attorney Smith. Mayor Sur prenant and Mr. Smith yesterday ex amined the building, and Mr. Smith said he thought the brick hardly suit able for the purposes of the city. He admitted that the offer was an ex cellent one, but opposed it merely on the ground stated. He added that it would cost $10,000 to fit it up prop erly, which would bring the cost up to $35,000. Council to Consider Matter. Mr. Nordstrom stated yesterday that the proposal would be brought before the council at the special session next Monday night He said he believed the public property committee should not incur any expense in preparing preliminary plans until such time as the council took action on Captain Flavel's offer. Yesterday the water commission filed with Auditor Anderson a request that the council make provision for an office for the water commission in the new city hall building. The commis sion wants an office for the clerk and desires space for a workshop. As it is the intention to separate workshops from the city hall, one feature of the commission's request will probably be ignored. Mr. Nordstrom is anxious to secure expressions from taxpayers on the proposal submitted yesterday, and has requested Astorlans to give him their views on the matter. Dowie in Berlin. Berlin, June 8. John Alexander Dowie has arrived here. He has taken the rooms lately occupied by one of the Vanderbilts, costing $40 per day.

EYE STRAIN IS the most common cause of those nervous headaches that your doctor does not reaoh. Dizziness, darting pains in the eye-balls or temples, smarting or burning sensation, the eyes become red and lids inflamed, quivering of lids and jerking of muscles in and around the eyes. Do you ever have dark spots float ing before your eyes? Does the sun and wind hurt them? Do you have a sleepy feeling and desire to close the eyes when reading? Blurring of vision or lines and letters running together? If you feel any of these distressing symptoms, have your eyes examined and ee what comfort and relief you will find when properly fitted with glasses. AT CATHERINE WADE, Graduate Optician. THE OWL DRUG. STORE. B. F. Allen Declares That Civil War Was not Contest Between Political Parties. LOTS OF LOYAL DEMOCRATS Writer Declares Hint Senator Is iu Error In Charging Dis ciples of JeAersou With Infidelity. Benjamin F. Allen, civil war veteran and prominent democrat, insists that United States Senator Fulton Is In error in stating that the democrats fought against the flag In the civil war. Mr. Allen takes exception to the speech of Senator Fulton deliver ed at Fisher's opera house on Satur day night last at the rally of the re publicans. The senator's remarks were published in The Astorlan, although, however, merely the substance of his statement appeared, no effort having been made to give an exact quotation. Senator Fulton stated that democrats were true patriots as good cltltens as republicans and that they had but once failed to rally to the support of the flag. He charged that they lined up against the Union In the civil war, and later on In his address, describing the principles which the two great par ties had stood tor, asserted that the first Inscription which he saw on the democratic banner wan one to the ef fect that there was no power to up hold the constitution. To this state ment Mr. Allen objects. His letter Is as follows: Astoria, June 8. Editor of The As torlan: As a democrat, having served my country for the full term of en listment, with an honorable discharge and a vote of thanks signed by the president Abraham Lincoln, and the secretary of war, for service rendered our government I ask the privilege of replying to a statement of Senator Fulton, aa quoted in Sunday's Asto rlan, made during his address on Sat urday evening. I was not at the meet ing, therefore I can not say whether the statement as it appeared in The Astorlan was a correct quotation or not I will quote The Astorlan, as follows: "The only time the democrats neg lected to gather 'round the flag was at the time of the war of the rebellion. Mr. Fulton did not wish It understood that he was scoring indi vidual democrats." Well, if he was scoring democrats as a party, then the Douglas democrats must come in for the greatest con demnation, as they were the main body. It is history that the Douglas wing was by all odds the largest First came the Douglas wing, then the Bell; third the Breckinridge. The Douglas branch, being larger than both the Bell and the Breckinridge com bined, was the main opponent of the republican party in the campaign of 1860. When it became evident that war between the north and the south must take place, Stephen A. Douglas ap pealed to his party mind you, the democratic party to stand by the Union. Now, did they stand by the flag or not? I ask you, Mr. Fulton, to look up the Douglas democratic par ty record and see, if you have not al ready done so, before accusing us again of being traitors to our flag. At least two-thirds of our leading democrats went into the service of the Union as democrats, among them, and the great est of all, Grant. New York before the war was democratic; during the war republican, and directly after the war, when the soldiers had returned home, democratic. Another fact I will mention. t In my own state, Illinois, every county giv ing a majority to 'Douglas filled her full quota of volunteers and was ex empt from draft The counties giving a republican majority failed to do so, and the draft took place in those counties. I lived in a county, Dekalb, that gave a handsome majority to Lin coln. We had the draft there, and 1 had the honor to act as one of the guards, with fixed bayonets, to march some of my republican friends substi tutes through the streets of Chicago to the train, on which they were placed and guarded to the front, while hun dreds of people were asking us all along the way if they were prisoners. I went to the front a volunteer as a democrat with many other demo crats as companions, and now I must hear the cry again, as in the days of the bloody shirt, "Traitors!" without drawing the line of distinction between the true and the false the old familiar republican cry for republican votes only.

It will not be many years before the last ot us are laid away beyond the hearing of those who, for political Influence, would divide the democrats from the republican soldiers and declare that the one was loyal and the other a traitor. Aa 1 understand, the war woa not between the republican and democratlo parties. The republican party was not an anti slavery party at that time, and all It advocated on those lines was that con gress had the right to prohibit slavery In the territories. The war was strict ly between the slave states, save Ken tucky, Missouri and a portion of Vir ginia (the latter some time after be ing divided and becoming separate states, East and West), and the states that were not, except the states men tionedKentucky, Missouri and West Virginia. All the parties were pledged to slavery in the states that were slave states, and with nearly all the leading generals, who were democrats, the democrats, with the republicans of the north, were Jed to victory, and, al though the republican party may now claim to have that Influence that It can call to Its assistance at will the power of heaven to bestow prosperity upon the people of this earth, It Is now too late to change tbe history ot the past, even by the will of the republican party.

Physician of Butts Arrested on 8rlous Chargs. Butte, Mont, June 8. Details of a horrible Btory of the burning of the body of a small baby were told to the police last night and a serious charge will be preferred against a prominent physician of this city as soon as he can be located by the police. According to the story told by the officers, the physician entered the kitchen of the Delmonlco restaurant, on Park street, one of the best-known eating-houses in the city, last evening, carrying a bundle which he wanted to put in the fire. As the doctor, upon several occasions before, had put bun dles Into the fire, the cook thought nothing of the request and granted it. Several minutes later the cook, un able to get the stove lid down, removed the Iron and was horrified to find on the top of the mass of flaming couls the body of a baby. A WOMAN TO BE PRETTY Mast Have Lnxarlamt and Glossy Ililr, No Matter What Color. The finest contour of a female face, the sweetest smile of a female mouth, loses something if the head is crowned with scant hair. Scant and falling hair, It Is now known, is caused by a parasite that burrows into the scalp to the root of the balr, where it saps the vitality. The lit tle white scales the germ throws up in burrowing are called dandruff. To cure dandruff permanently, then, and to stop falling hair, that germ must be killed, Xewbro's Herplcide, an entirely new re sult of tbe chemical laboratory, destroys the dandruff germ, and, of course, stops the failing hair, and prevents baldness.
