SUPERIOR TO LYM PH.
A Mew Consumption . Core Dlseovered
by a Berlin rhyslcian.
Paris, Feb. 23. Koch's prestige is be
low, par here. His lymph is considered
rank poison, and they won't try it on
human beings. Early this week two
monkeys in the Jardin d'Acclimation
were inoculated, and both have died.
Meanwhile Professor Liebrich, director
of the Royal pharmacological institute
in Berlin, discovers an entirely different
remedy for consumption. Conversing
with a correspondent, he said:
"It is not an improvement on Koch's
lymph. It is an entirely different rem
edy. The only similarity between them
is that my remedy is also injected sub
cutaneouwly." " . .
"Is it the product of bacilli or a chem
"That 1 cannot answer now. I will
give full information in a few davs. -I
shall publish a full description of my
process so that every physician can pre
pare his own matter. I shall not keep
the secret nor let any one man have a
monopoly of the manufacture."
"In what does your remedy differ from
tuberculine ; does it bring aliout any dif
"It brings on no reaction, nor does it
cause fever. It is harmless, but will
cure tuberculosis of the larvnx. Of that
experiments haveconvinced me. I have
injected patients afflicted with tuber
culosis of the larynx and have positively
cured them. Some of them suffered to
such an extent that they had become
aphonic. Under treatment they, recov-.
ered their voice and are now completely
cured. Professor Frankel, at the Royal
clinic for diseases of the larynx, and Dr.
Heyman, at a private clinic, met similar
"How about advaured cases of phthi
sis?" "I think I will be able, to cure these
affections also, but time has been too
short for any detininte observation."
A Letter in Appreciation of tbe Honors
Paid to the Dead.
New York, Feb. 23. The sixvial
funeral train which carried the body of
general Merman to St. ixuis returned
to this city this morning, bearing the
family of the dead general and the mili
tary officers who accompanied the body.
One of the first acts -of the familv on
their return was to address the following
letter to the public in appreciation of the
honors paid to their beloved dead and
tne nation's hero. 1 he letter was signed
by Father Thomas K. Sherman. It
reads as follows
It is fitting that some public acknowl
edgement should be made by the family
of General Sherman of the verv many
heartfelt tokens of sympathy which they
have received in their bereavement. We
can only say that such universal and
evidently profound sorrow, manifested
as it has been in h thousand ways, sus
tains and comforts us in our desolation,
for the entire nation, !y its generous ex
pression of condolence, has livhtenRri the
burden of our grief and helped us to bear
our irreparable loss. The friends of our
tamity are asked to accept this slight
token of our grateful appreciation in lieu
of any more direct personal communica
tion, which, while it would be more
gratifying to us, we have not now strength
or courage to offer each and all.
CLEVELAND WILL DECLINE
His Pronunciamento Expected in a Pew
Nkw York, Feb. 28. In his Washing
ton letter to the Tributu;, T. C. Crawford
says : "News of a mysterious pronuncia
mento from Cleveland runs through
democratic circlee. His friends at the
capitol say that he will come out soon in
a letter absolutely declining to be a-candidate.
Why he should take occasion
at this particular time to make an an
nouncement of this sort is not easy to
understand. There is no immediate
danger of his being nominated which re
qnies such a means of defense. Demo
crats are much broken up in their own
minds about what is best to be done.
This is specially true since Cleveland
wrote his letter on the silver question.
Still, none of the democratic leaders
have felt called upon to express more
than a causual opinion. The presiden
tial year is still too far away to call for
anything except simulation. It is just
possible that candidates are to be an
nounced this year on the democratic
side through a torm of negation, and
Cleveland is to announce at an early
dav that under no circumstances would
The Directors of the California Club

LaBlanche fight, which took place at
tne cluD last fnday mgnt'. Altera dis

have been made that the fight was sold.
- THE FIGHT A PAKE.
" Boston, Feb. 23. The fight between
Young Mitchell and LaBlanche at the
California Athletic . Club, Friday night,
was one of the biggest fakes ever perpe
trated on any club. There is positive
evidence that the "Marine" took his
own knockout, according to an agree
ment with a prominent Colorado sport
ing man. - On February 11 the "Marine"
wrote the Colorado man from ' Rossville
the following letter :
"Bet all the money you can v on
Mitchell and telegraph ; me how much
money you have on him.' Word your
telegram to Grand hotel, San Francisco,
this way : 'I have so much money on the
fight.' I will understand it."
The fact leaked out in this city,.and
several persons knew Tuesday that the
match was not to be le vel and get several
beta by giving odds of $150 to $100 on
GREAT STORM RAGING.
The Pacific Coast at Last Experiences .
San Francisco. Feb. 23. The ereat.
storm of the past two- days, which was -central
this morning in Oregon, has
moved eastward bevonii . the Pacifin '
coast states, followed by a rapidly rising . :
uarnnieier in . iortnern Ciaiilornla. '
Nevada and Oregon. Another cvclone is 7
approaching off Vancouver's island, at
tended by rain throughout Oregon and
Washington, , with winds shifting to
south and east in the western portion of
this region. Storm signals have been
ordered for this disturbance at all North
pacific coast stations. At Fort Can by - -
the wind is east, twenty-two miles per
hour, with rain. During the dav the .. .
winds ha.ve been brisk -to high in North- " ',
em California and Nevada and generally
from the south, with rain, turning to ' , .'
snow in' the mountatns. .
At Winnemucca the wind is south- .
west, blowing at velocity of sixty miles
per hour; Keeler, south, forty-two
miles; San Francisco, southwest, thirtyr "
two miles; Sacramento, . southwest, '
thirty miles; Red Bluff, southeast,
thirty miles. All reports are missing ,
from Southern California, Southern
Nevada and Arizona. Telegraph com- ;'
munication is still cut off. The bar- - '
ometer is decidedly below the normal in
all districts, varying from one-half to ;
over three-quarters of an inch.: This
condition of the atmosphere is favorable -
to the rapid approach of another dis- :
turbance, and affords ; opportunity for ;
the occurrence of precipitation, with ;.
slight changes in temperature and wind '
direction. In view of the approach of .
another cyclone from the northwest, the '
weather will still remain unsettled in -California.
