You May' Have a Sample Bottle of the Great Discovery,
Kilmer's Swamp-Root Sent Free by Mail.
People doctor their troubles and try different medicines so often without benefit
that they get discouraged and skeptical. In most such cases serious mistakes are made j
in doctoring and not knowing what our trouble is or what makes us sick. The uuniis- j
takable evidences of kidney trouble are pain or dull ache in the back, too frequent de- I
sire to pass water, scanty supply, scalding irritation. As kidney disease advances the
face looks sallow or pale, eyes puffy, the feet swell and sometimes the heart aches badly, i
Should farther evidence be needed to find out the cause of sickness, then set urine aside ,
for twenty;four hours; a sediment or settling is also convincing proof that our kidneys
and bladder need doctoring.
The mild and extraordinary effect of Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Root, the great kidney
and bladder remedy, is soon realized. It stands the highest for its wonderful cures.
Sold by druggists, price tifty cents and one dollar. So universally successful has
Swamp-Root been in quickly curing even the the most distressing cases that if you wish
to prove its wonderful merit you may have a sample bottle and book of valuable in
formation, both sent absoultely free by mail. Mention and send your address to Dr.

A piece of machinery run by steam and
overworked will become cranky, creaky and
out of gear, owing to some expansion of
metal from heat and friction. Stop its
work, rub and brighten and let it rest. In
a short while it will be restored and will
run smoothly. The human system is a
machine. Too much work and worry are
thrown upon it; too much of the heat of
daily cares; too much of the steam of daily
business. The nerves become cranky ; they
are restless, sleepless and twitchy, and a
neuralgic condition sets in. Pain throws
the machine out of gear and it needs rest
and treatment to strengthen and restore.
St. Jacobs Oil is the one remedy of all pe
culiarly adapted to a prompt and sure
cure. "So many have so treely testified
from experience and use to its efficacy in
the cure of neuralgia that it passes without
saying that it surely cures. It will be a

I RESPITE FOR DURRANT
Condemned Murderer Given
Another Lease of Life.
LAW ALLOWS 60 DAYS OF GRACE
Supreme Court of California
Petition and Grants a
San Francisco, Nov. 15. William
Henry Theodore Durrant will not be
hanged at San Quentin tomorrow morn
ing, after all, the supreme court of this
state having granted him another
respite at the eleventh hour.
Up to 4 o'clock this afternoon, when
the news was flashed over the wires
from Sacramento that the court now in
session there had granted a writ of
probable cause," and had instructed
Warden Hale not to carry out the exe
uution' of Durrant until further 'orders,
there was apparently no further hope
for the condemned murderer of Blanche
Lamont, as his attorneys, Messrs. Dick'
inson and Boardman, had made a futile
effort to secure another writ of habeas
corpus in the United States circuit
court, and had not even been granted
permission to appeal from that decision
to the supreme court of the United
Meanwhile, however, Attorney Deu
prey hastened to Sacramento and ap
plied to the state supreme court for a
writ of probable cause for the purpose
of 'staying the proceedings against his
client, upon the "rounds that no official
knowledge of the action of the supreme
received; that the superior court had
acted too hastily in sentencing Durrant
to be hanged tomorrow, as the law re
quired that he be given at least 60 days
of grace, and, consequently, that the
pendency of another appeal in the
supreme court affecting the condemned
man is of itself sufficient cause of a stay
The matter was partially argued in
chambers, and later argued before the
full court and taken under advisement.
Shortly afterward the court announced
its decision, granting the writ applied
for, in which all the justices concurred.
Shortly before midnight, Attorney
Eugene Deuprey, of counsel for Durrant,
arrived from Sacramento, having crossed
the bay in a steam launch. The pur
pose of this trip was to make personal
service on Warden Hale of a certified
copy of the order of probable cause
issued by the supreme court at Sacra
mento. The precaution was taken that
there might be no pretext for executing
Durrant tomorrow. The warden was
asleep, and was deaf to all efforts to
arouse him. Captain Edgar accepted
the service and agreed to deliver the
documents to his superior in .the morn-
Warden Hale had stated in the
evening that he was in doubt as to
what course to pu'sue. He said that,
in any event, he would delay the exe
cution until the latest legal limit of
time noon tomorrow but that he had
been advised that he should proceed to
hang the prisoner, as he had received
no personal service of the stay of execu
tion. However, he finally decided to

u" wa lonowjug uiopaiuu, rcceiveu
from Prison Director Devlin, 01 Sacra-
"Supreme court made an order and
has stayed all proceedings until further
orders of the court. Accordingly you
will postpone the execution. "
After reading this, Warden Hale said
he would retire, and there would be no
banging in the morning. No further
developments are expected tonight.

The duty collected on each outfit aver-
aged $60, and the total amount collect

the clothes that a man wore were not
exempted. Several cases of attempted
smuggling were detected, the goods be

WEEKLY MARKET LETTER.
Office of Downing, Hopkins & Co., Chicago
Board of Trade Brokers, 711-714 Chamber of Com
merce Building, Portland, Oregon.
In describing the local conditions ol
the Chicago wheat market for Decem
ber delivery it is simply a matter of
opinion whether to assert the market
is manipulated or not. The latter
supposition is the more reasonable.
Stocks of contract wheat have been ex
hausted by the unprecedented expert
and interior demand. High values ob
taining have induced speculative short
sales, with the resulting condition of a
constantly oversold and congested mar
ket. Granting all of which to be true,
the general conditions which ordinarily
control values are so extremely favor
able to high, prices that it is a matter
of great doubt as to whether specula
tion has played any important part in
advancing and maintaining values.
Export clearances of wheat and flour
for the week have been large. The ex
port' demand continues urgent and
promises to increase rather than di
minish. Stocks at market 'centers
show but a small increase for the season
compared with previous years, al
though the forward movement of the
crop has been unusually large. Beceipts
at primary points are beginning to fall
off, and it is becoming more and more
apparent that the spring crop of the
Northwest has been over-estimated.
The continued drought assures only a
moderate acreage seeded to winter
wheat, and that under favorable condi
tions. Crop advices from Argentine
continue conflicting and contradictory.
Advices from Australia assert that
their crop will be below an average and
give no surplus for export. Franoe
continues to buy wheat freely. From
all reports, public and private, it is a
certainty that European stocks are un
usually small and European require
ments abnormally large. The prospect
for the immediate future seems to fully
warrant present values for wheat, and
should any disaster overtake the Argen
tine crop it is probable that they will
be fully maintained if not materially
advanced during the balance of our crop
The situation regarding corn values
shows a decided improvement during
the week, although still possessing ele
ments of radical weakness. Stocks, al
ready larger than ever before recorded,
show no immediate signs of decreasing.
On the other band, the cash demand,
both for home consumption and ex
port, shows a gratifying increase. Val
ues are now 15 cents per bushel below
an average for" the last ten years, and
the new crop is certainly below an av
erage in yield. There is little to war
rant a decline in supplies.

Washington, Nov. 15. Secretary
Alger has approved the estimates for
the coast-defense work submitted by
General Miles, and they will be sub
mitted to Chairman Cannon, of the
house committee on appropriations
some days before the opening of the
session. In accordance with law, the
expenditures of the different seaports
are itemized, but the secretary will
ask for authority to""spend the money in
lump sums, so that work on any par
ticular defense may be hurried to meet
emergencies. General Miles divides
the fortification appropriation for the
Pacific coast as follows:
San Diego, Cal 725,000
San Francisco 1,336,000
Columbia river . 605,000
Puget sound 1,140,000
In his report to the secretary, Gen
eral Miles makes no reference to pos
sible complications with Spain, but
"Although the general desire of our
people is to maintain a condition of
peace with &11 nations, and the policy
of the government is one of good will

Commercial Directory of American Re
publics Presented to the President.
Washington, Nov. 15. Secretary
Sherman, Minister Eomero of Mexico,
and Minister Merou of Argentine, mem
bers of the executive committee of the
bureau of American republics, were at
the White House today and presented
the first volumn of the commercial di
rectory of the American republics to
President McKinley. There was oon
siderable formality about the matter,
the presentation being made in the blue
parlor. Secretary Sherman presented
the volume, saying the work was re
garded as of "such vast practical im
portance to the commerce of our coun
try, as to be well worthy that
ahoul J come in a body to present it to
you. Dpon looking through its pages
you will discern its far-reaching value
as a factor in disseminating general in
formation respecting the natural re
sources, the peculiar commercial activi
ties, the varying occupations, the in
dustries and the latent capbilities of
the countries of the Western hemis
phere." President McKinley made a formal
response, expressing his interest in the
work of the bureau and the hope that
the publication would lead to a closer
commercial relation between the repub
lics of America. With the volume was
transmitted a letter to the president
from Joseph P. Simth, director of the
bureau, in which he stated the objects
of the publication. It is a commercial
cyclopedia of the Western hemisphere,
intended to furnish information for the
benefit of merchants and agriculturists.
President McKinley has been congratu
lated from time to time during the
progress of the work,' and has shown
great interest in it.
A WHITECAP OUTRAGE.

Holgate, O., Nov. 15. Word reached
this city this evening from Oakwood, a
hamlet 25 miles south, of an outrage
perpetrated last night by whitecaps
upon two girls, Edith and May Rob
erts, 19 and 17 years of - age, respect
ively. Ten days ago the young ladies
received a whitecap notice warning
them to leave the town and county,
but they paid no attention to the no
tice. " Last night, they were awakened
by a band of eight or ten men entering
their rooms and dragging them from
their beds in their night-robes to the
near-by road, where they were terribly
whipped with a cat-o'-nine-tails, which
was found this morning. After beat
ing them,' they gave the girls a coat of
tar and feathers and took them back to
the house, where they were found un
conscious this morning.
May, the younger of the girls, is in
a critical condition, the flesh being cut
to the bone by the whip. There is no.
