Acceii to Twenty-three I'ort
Washington, Aug. 18. Senator Davis,
of Minnesota, member of the committee
- on foreign relatione, expects great things
from the new treaty with China. He
said it will prove most beneficial to our
commercial interests. For years com
merce has been obstructed by the con
tention over the question of immigration.
Chinese immigration is now mado un
lawful by both countries. Owing to this
and other disputes, other countries have
distanced us in the race for China's trade,
which they considered valuable enough
to fight for, as was shown by the action
of England and France. This country
has the best geographical position for
securing this trade. Our Pacific ports
and our transcontinental railways facili
tate the movement of freight in that di
rection. Chinese exclnsiveness is break
ing down. China has granted conces
sions for an immense iron and steel plant,
and for a railway from Hannow to Pekin.
Another railway from the northern coast
to the Russian frontier is now under
consideration, and telegraph lines are
being put up all over the empire. This
indicates commerce with an empire
whose people constitute one-fifth of the
human race. China nses silver in trade,
but produces little of it. This should
give -our silver mines a market. In 1S92
Chinese imports were $123,500,000 and
her exports $102,000,000. Great Britain
furnished 3,1 10,000 ,000of the imports and
took $60,000,000 of the exports, giving a
balance in her favor of $50,000,000. The
United States' share of the imports was
but $6,000,000 and she took $10,000,000
of exports. Now access to the 23 treaty
ports is as free to us as to any nation.
The Supplemental Tariff Bills.
Washington, Aug. 18. Senator Har
ris, acting chairman of the finance com
. mittee, has called a meeting of the com
mittee for Monday, when it is under
stood the supplemental tariff bills will
be taken up and an effort made to have
them reported, notwithstanding the sen
ate's adoption of the Murphy resolution
declaring against the practicability of all
efforts at further contested legislation
during this session. The democratic
members of the committee say they do
not consider the action of the senate in
the resolution as binding upon the com
mittee, and they will make an effort to
have the bills reported.
A Wild Man.
Boise. Aug. 18. A wild man-has been
found on Malheim creek, in Oregon.
For many days past ranchers have heard
strange noises among the willows and
the wail of a human being, blended with
the lonesome yelps of coyotes. Yester
day Lloyd Garrison was at work on Mal
heim when the wild man suddenly made
his appearance and frightened him terri
bly. He heard a series of yells, and
then out of the brush came the figure of
. a man with a scanty rag about his loins,
his eyes wild and protruding from their
sockets, and his emaciated body covered
with a short hair of dark color.
The Steering Committee.
Washington, Aug. 18. The republi
can steering committee-of the senate met
at 11 :30 today to put in shape the
amendments decided upon by the caucus
yesterday. One is a resolution instruct'
ing the finance committee to report a
free sugar bill, so as to provide for a rev-
enue duty on sugar and a continuance of
the present bounty. - The other amend
ments agreed upon by the caucus and
put in shape by the steering committee
provide for a modification of Murphy's
resolutions, so as to declare against
further legislation this session.
Stiver and Harbor BUI.
Washington, Aug. 18. It having be'
come definitely settled that no free sugar
bill can pass this session, Cleveland has
decided to let the river and harbor bill
become a law. Senator Dolph left Wash
ington "tonight, and after a short rest
will go on to Oregon. Hermann and
Ellis will also be in. Oregon soon after
Washington, Aug. 18. The river and
harbor bill, carrying $11,479,180, became
a law at midnight tonight without Pres
ident Cleveland's signature, the legal
time of 10 days having expired in which
he could sign it or veto it. It is the
third time during Cleveland's adminis
tration of two terms that a ' river and
harbor bill has become a law without his
approval, only one bill of the kind sub
mitted to him having been vetoed.
A laclfle Record.
San Fbancisco, Aug. 18. The steam
er China arrived here from Hong Kong,
via Yokohama, quite unexpectedly this
afternoon. She was not looked for until
next Monday, and has, in consequence,
smashed the record into small pieces.
Her best effort was made in 1892, when
she-covered the distance between Yoko
hama and San Francisco in 12 days, 13
hours and 8 minutes. On this occasion
she .left the same point August 7, and
assuming that she sailed at 7 a. in., the
time would be for the run of 4525 miles,
11 days and 18 hours.
The President at Buzzard's Bay.
Buzzard's Bay, Aug. 18. The presi
dent and Mrs. Cleveland took a eail'for
a few hours this afternoon on the light
house tender John D. Rogers. They
went over to Marion. Mrs. Cleveland
called on Mrs. Thorber, the wife of the
president's private secretary, who is
summering here.. The president did not
leave the steamer. Chief Executive
Clerk O'Brien today arrived at the cot
tage of his brother, who is summering at
Monument -Beach, having previously
called at Gray Gables.
The Printed Bill. '
-Washington, Aug. -IS. This after
noon, the treasury department began
mailing printed copies of the new tariff!
bill to customs officials to guide them in
putting the new law into effect. Each
copy is exactly like the enrolled bill,
errors of punctuation included. All the
custom houses were not supplied through
to-day's mail, but copies for the remain
der will be sent out Monday. The first
batch to go out today included eixty
copies for the San Francisco custom house
with a lesser number for other posts.
' An Enemy of the Kzetas.
San Fbancisco, Aug. 18. Dr. Eustro-
jio Caldron has been appointed consul
for Salvador here. The doctor is a bitter
enemy ot the Ezetas. At one time he
participated in a revolution against them
and was afterward captured, and by
their orders tortured.' Concerning the
warrants for the arrest of Ezeta, there
has been no juggling and no mystery.
The papers have simply not arrived.
Barbarism Against Civilization.
Berlin, Aug. 18. The Yossische Zei-
tung warns German -financiers againet
taking any part of the proposed Chinese
loan. To contribute to the Chinese war
fund, says the editor, id to support the
cause of barbarism against civilization.
The report that Germany might side
with England in support of China is not
The Plague in China.
Shanghai. Aug. 18. The plague has
been stamped out at Canton, and is
abating rapidly in Hong Kong. In the
hospitals the number of sick has been
reduced to less than 100, but as the
Chinese are beginning to return from
the mainland, it is feared there may be
an increase of the disease. '
Money In Japan.
Loxdon, Aug 18. The Japanese lega
tion has not received news from Japan
to confirm the report that an imperial
decree has been - issned, authorizing the
raising of a Japanese loan of $50,000,000,
It was stated at the legation that if the
loan was required it will be entirely
rsieeu in oapau.

deserting Califrornia in large 'numbers
They find that it ia difficult for them to
obtain work here, and many are return
ing to Italy. Others are going to the
Southern states, particularly Florida
The Chinese pay their doctor only so
long as7 he keeps them in health. They
believe in preventing rather than curing
disease. This is sound sense, and one

LITTLE, BUT OH, MY!
Mark Twain's Amusing Description of the
Powers of the Plea
The boy in arithmetic seldom finds
humor in figures, but Mark Twain is
able to make a calculation that seems
quite amusing-. In his "Tom Sawyer
Abroad" he thus discourses of the flea:
"When you come to gauge a thing's
speed by its size, where's your bird, and
your man, and your railroad, alongside
of a flea? The fastest man can't run
more than ten 'miles in an hour not
much over ten tnousand times his own
length. But all the books say any com
mon, ordinary, third-class flea can
jump a hundred and fifty times his own
length; yes, and he can make five jumps
a second, too, seven hundred and fifty
times his own length in one little sec
ond; for he don't fool away any time
stopping and starting he does them
both at the same time; you'll see if
you try to put your finger on him.
Now, that's a common, ordinary, third
class flea's gait, but if you take an
Eyetalian first-class, that's been the
pet of the nobility all his life and hasn't
ever knowed what want, or sickness, or
exposure was, and he can jump more
than three hundred times his own
length. It's ninety miles a
minute; it's considerably more than
five thousand miles an hour. Where's
your man now? Yes, and your bird,
and your railroad, and your balloon?
Laws! They don't amount to shucks
'longside of a flea. A Ilea is just a comet
biled down small." -
Cse of the Toes.
Tne notion that the power of the toes
of the men and women of modern times
is destroyed by the binding up of the
feet in leather through a great part of
life is incorrect. In commenting upon
an English professor's remark: "The
toes are not used," Dr. T. S. Ellis says:
aow is it, then, that the muscles of
the sole and of the leg, which . act on
the toes, do not atrophy for want of
use? I have long insisted that, even in
ordinary walking in' ordinary boots,
tne toes, and all of them, are used, and
serve a very useful purpose." There
can. be no doubt of the rightfulness of
Dr. Ellis' judgment in this contention.
This remedy is becoming so weln
known and so popular as to need no
special mention, All who nse Electric
Bitters sing the same song of praise.-
A purer medicine does not exist and it
Is guaranteed to do alL.that is claimed.

-A Torpedo Catcher Seized.
London, Aug. 18. The government
has ordered the customs officers at New
castle to seize, under the foreign enlist
ment act a torpedo catcher built at the
Ellswick, on China's order, and to de
tain the vessel until she shall have been
condemned or released by process of
law. ' - i
nearness Cannot be Cured
By local applications, as they cannot
reach the diseased portion of the ear.
There is only one way to cure Deafness,
and that is by constitutional remedies.
Deafness is caused , by an inflamed con
dition of the raucous lining of .the
Eustachian Tube. When this tube gets
inflamed yon have a rumbling sound or
imperfect hearing, and when it Is entirely
closed Deafness is the result, and unless
the inflammation can be taken out and
this tube restored to its normal condi
tion, hearing will be destroyed forever;
nine cases out of ten are caused by
catarrh, which is nothing but an in
flamed condition of the mucooa surfaces.
We will give One Hundred Dollars for
any case of Deafness (.caused by catarth)
that cannot be cured by Hall's Catarrh
Cure. Send for circulars, free.
