Th Teleflrrain thus sneaks of the
rible casualty at Washington :J
The mind shrinks in horror while
contemplating the ghastly scene in
Washington today. A building used by
the government as a storage for the war
department records collapses, burying
in ir.q rvtinfl hundreds of persons who
are the victims of somebody's criminal
carelessness. The city officials of Wash
ington and the government officials are
mnallv to blame the former for not
tearing the old building down long ago
and the latter for occupying a building
which had been condemned as unsafe
for habitation. And then to add more
criminality to their carelessness they
permitted an excavation to be made un
der the building when it was known to
be in an unsound condition. One can
hardly realize that such careless methods
should prevail in any city governed by
intelligent human beings. The persons
sihle for this disaster should be
prosecuted to the full extent of the law
The old theater was made historical
from being the scene of Mr. Lincoln's
assassination. It has never been used
as a playhouse since. For a long time
it remained unoccupied, and was finally
leased by the government and used as a
depository for the war records. Four
hundred clerks were employed in the
building, all of whom were carried down
to death or mutilation in today's catas
trophe. The indulgence of a sentiment
because it had been the scene of Mr.
Lincoln's 'assassination was the excuse
for permitting the building to stand af
te.r it had been condemned by the local
authorities. But that was no excuse for
permitting it to be occupied.
The heart grows sick with reading the
details of this almost unparalleled
calamity. Four hundred men, repre
sentatives of good families from all parts
of the union, employed in the govern
ment service, went to their work this
morning with light hearts, and never
dreaming of the terrible fate that was
awaiting them. Suddenly, and without
warning, the walls parted and the floors
gave way, hurling the occupants of the
building into a pit of death. It was
wholesale muader, and the murderers
should be made to pay the penalty.
Messrs. Allen & Lewis say in regard
to the condition of the wool market :
"The market continues dull and de
pressed. Buyers are bard to find, even
at extreme low prices. Sales have been
made here of Valley in small lots at 14
cents. Very little has been done in
Eastern. Values range between 8 cents
and 14 cents."
This is the opinion of Wadhams & Co.,
who say :
"The market is not alone unsettled oh
account of the tariff, but owing to the
stringency of the money market buyers
are not making any engagements.
Banks are not willing to furnish the coin
to even the most responsible dealers,
and consequently the sheepraisers will
have to hold their wool for the present."
Dr. M. J. Davis is a prominent physi
cian of Lewis, Cass county, Iowa, and
has been actively engaged in the practice
of medicine at that place for the past
thirty-five years. On the 26th of May,
while in Des Moines en route to Chicago,
he was suddenly taken with an attack of
diarrhoea. Having sold Chamberlain's
Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy
for the past seventeen years, and know
ing its reliability, he procured a 25 cent
bottle, two doses of which completely
cured him. The excitement and change
of water and diet incident to traveling
often produce a diarrhoea. Every one
should procure a bottl6 of this Remedy
before leaving home. For sale by
Blakeley & Houghton, druggists.

The Salem papers, frightened at the
row they have stirred up in the matter
of the soldier's home and fearing that
an indignant populace will cause the
removal of the capitol, are throwing
mud at Mr. Sherman who sued out the
injunction. The time when intelligent
people can be deceived by a scape-goat
has gone by. The people of Salem made
the kick and must take their punish
ment, if the people of the state kick
