Speaking of patent medicines, the
Judge eays: "I wish to deal fairly and
honorably with all, and when I find an
. article that will do what it is recom
mended to do, I am not ashamed to say
eo. I am acquainted with Dr. Vander
pool' (having been treated' by him for.
cancer), and have used his blood medi
cine, known as the S. B. Headache and
Liver Cure, and while I am 75 years old,
and have used many pills and other
remedies for the blood, liver and kid
neys, I must say that for a kidney tonic
'in Brights disease, and as an alterative
for the blood, or to correct the action of
the stomach and bowels, it is a very su
perior remedy, and bents anything I
ever tried. " .J. B; Nelson,

. Washington, Oct. 26. The president
is bearing up remarkably well under
bis affliction. Traces of great sorrow
are plain, but he has nerved himself to
face his affliction with fortitude.' Those
who saw him this morning found his
eyes red with weeping and his voice
broken with emotion, but he constantly
endeavored to repress its influence.
Messages of sympathy are pouring in
upon him. All the members of the im
mediate families are here. Carter Har
rison, of Tennessee, and Mrs. Harrison's
only brother, John Scott, of Port Towns
end, Wash., will probably not come to
Washington, but go direct to Indian
apolis. Such members of the cabinet as were
in the city called this morning and had
a conference with . the president. He
expressed a wish that the public busi
ness be transacted as usual, and the
members of the cabinet were therefore
at their desks most of the day. Such of
them as can be spared will accompany
the remains to Indianapolis.
The president is averse to having the
White House flag displayed at half-
mast, so it was not placed on the staff
this morning as usual. Flags on the
public buildings are at half-mast.' A
plain black crape knot on the White
House door is the only oatward symbol
Very cold and dreary appeared the
white facade of the president's home in
the chill, frosty air of a gray and misty
autumn morning. The watchmen paced
their beats at the' gates, the grounds
were deserted and the only sound was
that made by the rustling of the sere
and yellow leaves, which dropped from
the stately elms and oaks at every light
puff of air upon the green sward already
so thickly carpeted. Mrs. Harrison has
died with the leaves- and flowers she
loved so well, and her life had ebbed
away at that inspiring hour of the night
which precedes the first flush of dawn,
when the blood runs slowly and nature
itself seems to almost suspend its func
tion. ALASKA VOLCANO LOCATED.
Ashes From It Brought to Prof. David
son by Lieut. Cantwell.
The active volcano on the peninsula
of Alaska, which has been recently re
reported as being in violent erup
tion, covering the land and sea for hun
dreds of miles with ashes and volcanic
dust, has at last been definitely located
by Lt. Cantwell, of the United States
revenue marine service, who has re
cently returned from a cruise of several
months in Behring sea. During his
stay in the waters of Alaska he obtained
much information of value bearing on
the topography and general condition of
the Alaskan coast. He made a report
of his discovery in relation to the great
volcano on the Alaskan peninsula to
Prof. Davidson, of the .United.. States
geodetic survey. Accompanying his
report was a package of ashes or volcanic
dust thrown out by the crater and col
lected by him from the deck of the-
Richard Rush, on which it settled.
The volcano has hitherto been re
ported as being an eruption of Pabloff
mountain. This report came from
Chignik bay and from vessels that were
cruising many miles to the westward of
the bay. Lt. Cantwell says that the
volcanic mountain ib in reality the
volcano of Wenjaminow, and not Pabloff.
It is located on the peninsula ' to the
west and north of Chignik bay, in lati
tude 56 deg. 5 min., longitude 159 deg.
It stands near a series of lakes lying on
the peninsula, of which the northern
lake finds an .outlet into Behring sea
and the southern lake discharges into
Ivanoff bay, on the southern side of the
Wenjaminow, or Benjamin, as it is
translated, is named after the former
Archbishop of AlaBka, who made a re-
port of its existence fifty years ago. He
states in his narrative that it was throw
ing out a column of smoke from the year
1830 to 1840. Agent Applegate, formerly
of the Alaska Commercial company, also
saw the volcano while recently in Ivan
off bay hunting for sea-otter. He saw
the eruption, with the flames and col
umns of smoke thrown to a great height
in the air. Applegate made a report of
the circumstances to Lt. Cantwell,' who
was fortunate enough to see and distin
guish the mountain plainly, a few days
later,- from Chignik bay.
The package of volcanic ashes which
he gave to Prof. Davidson is a very fine
powder without a trace of grit.. It is of
a dark elate color and so light that it
readily floats on water for quite a length
of time. This volcanic dust is carried as
far as 250 or 2(50 miles out to sea, covering
the surface of the water so heavily as
to make it appear like a heaving sea of
ashes. The Richard Rush sailed
through this ash-covered water for three
days, during which time the dust con
tinued ' to fall, covering her thickly.
Through it the sun lost its brilliancy and
took on a whitish appearance like the
moon. The air was so heavily laden
with it that it became extremely difficult
for one to breathe, Wenjaminow has
been in a state of eruption, throwing out
fire, rock and ashes, for several months
past, and when seen by Lt. Cantwell
showed no signs of quieting down.
TUE FISHING SEASON.
A Legal Question InvolTlng the Limit
of Its Duration for a Tear.
Suit has begun in the United States
circuit court by the Fook Wa Company,
of Portland, against I. H. Taffe, of Celilo
to recover $3,000. The trouble is all
about a misunderstanding in regard to
what period of time constitutes "the
fishing of 1892." ' The Oregonian says
the Fook Wa company contracted with
Mr.Taffe to pack his entire catch of sal
mon -for the fishing of 1S92, and he
agreed that there should be at least
10,000 cases for them to pack. Up to
the beginningof the close season the catch
was light, and they only had to pack
2,250 cases. -Then they claimed that the
season was at an end, and demanded
their pay for packing the whole 10,000
cases, which Mr. Taffe had contracted to
provide. He claimed that the fishing
season of 1892 was not ended, but would
continue through the fall catch, after the
end ot the close season. As soon as the
close season was at an end he resumed
operations, and caught and had put up,
by another gang of Chinese, more than
enough fish to make up the 10,000 cases
he contracted to furnish. It now re
mains for the courts to decide 'whether
it includes the time when fish can be
caught up to New Year's. ;
The Mount Adams Mines.
Spokane Review. A. N. McAlister,
of the New York Mutual, has returned
to the city from Goldendale, where he
spent a month on business connected
with his company. He brought back
some samples of tellurite, of gold and
silver which he will assay as high as
$2,700 a ton. The ore was taken from
the Mount Adams district, and is found
in an almost inaccessible location in the
foot-hills about forty miles south of Mt.
Adams. He thinks that when the
country is opened up- a great deal of
rich silver and gold ore will be discov
ered in that hitherto unknown section
The enow is already deep in the vicinity
of the property, but a number of pros
pectors will make an attempt to go into
the mines vet this fall. The ore that
Mr. McAlister brought to Spokane with
him was taken from the surface and has
excited very favorable comment from
old miners who have seen it.
- Chicago Horse Market.
Chicago, Oct. 2G. J. S. Cooper com
mission salesman of horses, Union Stock
Yards, says : The week ending to-day
has been very unsatisfactory for every
thing except very heavy draft horses,
Small horses, drivers, streeters, etc.,
were very weak and hard sellers at prices
15 to 26 per cent below the prevailing
prices of the past month. There is no
encouragement and less hope, for the
present, as all eastern markets are glut
ted; 1600 to 1700 -lb horses for pinery
work are on the contrary in fairly good
demand at good prices.

AMERICAN TIN PLATE.
Col. Conger Says .' America . Will Soon
Produce her own Supply.
WHAT HE SAW VISITING IN EUROPE
He, Spent Two Weeks in, Wales, Exam
ining Tin Plate Plants.
THE QUESTION IS WAGES AND MEN
Where Block Tim Can lie Hail If We
Want It on a Par With all Europe
New York, Oct. 26. Among the pas
sengers on the White Star line steamer
Germanie, from Liverpool, were Col. A.
L. Conger and . wife of Akron, O. Col.
Conger, who is president of the Ameri
can tin plate company, spent a fortnight
in Wales, examining various tin-plate
plants, and he comes home convinced
that within two years America will make
all the tin-plate that will be required
and at less than the average market -price
of the last five years. ' In an inter
view, Col. Conger said : "If America
should not produce a single ton of pig
tin it would be no. disadvantage to her,
as, of the 54,000 tons produced in 1891,
Cornwall produced 9,000 tons, Australia
6,000 tons, Saxony 1,500 tons and the
South sea islands the remainder. We
can 'produce block plates as cheaply as
Wales can. We get tin in the South
seas at an equal advantage with Eng
land. The chief question Is of workman
ship and wages. Metal workmen here
are paid the highest wages received in
Europe for similar work ; yet we pay
double the wages paid here, and there .
will be no difficulty in getting plenty of
men. The smartest manufacturers in
Wales . are removing their plants to
America, which is a good move for both
countries, relieving the overproduction
here and giving us the experienced men
and the business we need."
Criticising . the Prince.
The fact that the prince of Wales ab-. '
sented himself from the funeral of Lord
Tennyson, in order that' he might at
tend the Newmarket races, has provoked
considerable comment in England. , His
action is especially dilated upon by cer
tain radical journals, which appear aox
ious to make a sensation similar to that
occasioned by the baccarat -scandal in
which the prince was involved. - The
prince of Wales" accompanied by the
duke of Cambridge, visited Newmarket
on that day and saw the rare for the '
Cesarewitch stakes. He was made the
object of a popular ovation when his
horse won the Nursery plate, a handi
cap of 200 sovereigns.- His absence from
Westminister abbey would have been
less remarked upon but for the fact that
not a single royal .personage was present
at the funeral, though, as the defenders
of the royal family strongly emphasize,
they were representtd by two generals
and two colonels, besides numerous
splendid wreaths. . Since the Tranby. .
Croft affair public opinion bos been very .
sensitive in regard to the conduct of the
prince of Wales, but the public takes a
very common-sense view of the prince's
present action. The efforts being made
to arouse feeling against him will fall
flat. It is generally felt that his partial
ity for the lighter side of national life is
so marked that to show deep regret over
the death of Lord Tennyson would be
mere hypocrisy. Those agitatingagainst
his absence, however, contend that his
presence was necessary, not as an ex
pression of personal feeling but as the
next head of the nation assisting at a
The Chronicle says ft is ti uelho prince
went where the iuussoi the people went. ,
Tennyson was never the people'e poet,
but the point is whether in the hearts of
tho people they really prefer a prince
who cannot postpone a day's shooting
or racing in order to mark a great. epoch
in his mother's reign.
