UNITED IN DEATH.
i ;NEW YORK, Mar. 30.-Just on
the eve of her expected departure
Saturday to visit her sister in Eng
land, Miss Olive Trearin, house
keeper for Miss Eliza Moulton, a
wealthy woman of New Rochellc, re
ceived a cablegram announcing that
her sister had died. Despondent over
the news, Miss Trearin last night
swallowed the contents of a bottle
of carbolic acid and died before a
physician could reach her.
Given ,up to Die.
B. Soieeel, 1204 N. Virginia street,
Evansville, Ind., writes: "For over
five years I was troubled with kidney
and bladder affections which caused
me much pain and worry. I lost flesh
and was all run down, and a year ago
had to abandon work entirely. I had
three of the best physicians who did
me no good and I was practically
given up to die. Foley's Kidney Cure
was recommended and the first bottle
gave me great relief, and after taking
the second bottle I was entirely
cured." Why not let it help youN

Physical Valuation Applied to the
DEARTH OF VITAL PRINCIPALS
"Army and Navy" Congress Sug
gested as an Appellation for the
Present Congress on Account of
Attention Paid Defense Measures.
WASHINGTON, Mar. 30.-Pres.
Roosevelt's belief that by means of
the physical valuation of the prop
erty of great corporations, the rela
tions between the public and these
corporations will be improved and
that the interests of the stockholders
will be protected, has received sup
port from an unexpected quarter.
Theodore N. Vail, president of the
American Telephone & Telegraph
Company, better known as the Bell
system, in his first annual report as
president of the company, made pub
lic last week, has applied the Roose
veltian principal of physicial valua
tion to his company, following the ex
ample of the United States Steel Cor
poration and the Pennsylvania Rail
road, in supporting policies of the
present national administration. The
American Telephone and Telegraph
Company has obligations to the
amount of $554,939,000, shown by
President Vail's report to include the
outstanding obligations of itself and
its subsidiary operating companies in
the United States in addition to the
capital stock, at par, in the hands of
the public. The report deducts from
the total of obligations as given
above cash on hand, quick receiva
bles, working assets and sundry in
vestments amounting to $101,075,000.
The balance, $453,865,000, represents
capital invested n operating plants.
These, however, are carried on the
books of the company at a valuation
of $492,496,000. The approximate ac
curacy of this book valuation has
now been proved by the appraisal of
engineers based upon an estimated
cost of copper at 15 cents a pound,
although many millions of pounds
used by the company were purchased
at a considerably higher figure. The
Rooseveltian appraisal, as the report
of the engineers may be called, gave
a total valuation of $488,292,000. The
deduction of $453,865,000, represent
ing the outstanding obligations
against its operating plants leaves a
surplus of appraised value over the
total of outstanding obligations no
less than $34,431,000. Political gos
sip in Washington and current opin
ion in the financial district of New
York hold that this practical demon
stration of the value of the applica
tion of the test of physicial valuation
wll have the effect of lessening op
position to the policy of the Presid
ent in that direction.
Now that the national conventions
are only a few weeks off, the two
big parties have begun to take inven
tory, with the result that the leaders
are "put to it" to find enough issues
and differences of policy upon which
to make a fight and get out the voters
for the. final battle next November.
Seldom before have the great polit
ical parties prepared for battle with
such few really vital principals at
stake. A close comparison of the
heretofore announced policies of the
Republicans and the Democrats will
show that there are only a few, and
these few slight, divergences of opin
ion on the great questions of the day.
With a realization of this state of af
fairs, the political stock-taking has
been earnestly and seriously pursued,
and the possibility of a hitherto al
most unthought-of has presented it
self. This is no less than the Su
preme Court of the Unted States
that tribunal which, by its interpre
tation of the statutes and treaties
which Congress enacts, constitutes
itself the "power behind the throne"
the real law-making body. At the
highest tribunal in the land are Re
publicans, and the chief justice and
two associate justices are of Demo
cratic faith. No less than four of the
jurists will be eligible for retirement
this year, and the chances are that
they will retire during the next ad
ministration. Therefore, the next
President doubtless will have it in his
Bench and install four men who are
sympathetic with his policies and are
of his political faith. The four who
may possibly retire n the next four
years are Chief Justice Fuller, Dem
ocrat, and Associate Justices Harlan,
Republican; Brewer, Republican; and
Peckham, Democrat. This consider
ation, it will be seen; is a more or
less important one, and it is under

stood that it will be used to influence
votes in the coming campaign.
While the custom has arisen of
denominating each Congress by some
characteristic name, the choice of
such an appellation for the present
session cems still to be in doubt.
Talked of at first as the "do nothing"
Congress, it now looks as if the pre
sent gathering of law makers would
be known as the "army and navy
congress" on account of the , extent
to which its attention has been at
tracted to the investigation of all
sorts of charges in connection with
these two branches of the national
defense. The navy so far has come
in for more than its share of notice,
beginning with the cruise to the Pa
cific and continuing through attacks
concerning the method of armament
and culminating at present in the
submarine scandal investigation. So
far the army, except for the Browns
ville affair, has kept its skirts fairly
clean but it now seems as if it were
to even scores with the navy. Dr.
L. L. Seaman, a volunteer surgeon
in the Spanish war who was subse
quently with one of the Japanese
divisions in the Russian war and who
has made a tour of the world inves
tigating contagious diseases, in an
article which he contributes to the
current number of Applcton's Maga
zine criticises the medical system of
the Army, handling the subject with
out gloves. "The medical depart
ment of our army," says the Apple
ton article, "whose archaic system al
most parallels that of Peking while
falling far below that of Patagonia,
although unequal to cope with the
exigencies of the Spanish War, is to
relatively 60 per cent worse off in
number than at the close of the Civil
War in 1864 or at the termination of
the Spanish American War". Dr.
Seaman further asserts that the Jap
anese in their war with Russia treat
ed their prisoners with more human
ity than this country accords to its
soldiers from a medical standpoint in
times of peace. It is believed here
that in view of Dr. Seaman's state
ments and surprising figures with
which he backs them up, the charges
which he makes cannot pass without
investigation on the part of Congress.
If such proves to be the case there
will be no branch of the service either
at land or sea that the present ses
sion has not taken up, and in view of
this fact it may well go down in his
tory as the army and navy congress.
Poor Uncle Sam has been the recip
ient of many queer requests, based
on exaggerated ideas of his generos
ity and usefulness as the patron saint
of these United States. They have
ranged all the way from appeals for
his help in finding a suitable help
meet for a one legged and cross-eyed
pensioner, to requests for early re
mittance of the amount accredited to
each inhabitant in the per capita cir
culation reports of the Treasury De
partment, or of the prize supposed to
be held out for the proud and puis
sant pops of twins or triplets. But
the request transmitted to the benign
old gentleman who presides over the
destinies of the Agricultural Depart
ment through a Georgia Congress
man this week, certainly should be
given first place in the list. The
"Dear Mr. Kongressman, sum time
ago, I writ yu, asking if there were
anythink the guvnment cud do to
make a fiten wife behave herself.
I ain't herd from yu and things is
"Will yu please let me no if you
can git me one of them pizen snakes
from India at the 'Cultural Depart
ment? I hcv allers voted for yu and
this is mitey little to ask."
Possibly the writer, before his
State went dry, became familiar
with the efficacy of reptiles in sub
during bclliberent spirits, and now
that it is dry turns to the govern
ment to help him out of his dilemma
and deliver him from a "fiten wife."
Undertakers' fees are perhaps cheap
er in Georgia than marriage licenses.
