ALL OPPOSE ENGLAND
To Support Fraiice in Her
Claims in Africa.
HAS GERMANY'S SYMPATHY, TOO
Strain Between the Two Governments,
Despite SI. Hanotaux'a Word,
Grows More Intense.
London, April 6. According to the
latest foreign advices, Belgium, both
diplomatically and practically, will sap
port France in her claims in the Upper
Kile valley. The Belgian Congo state
expedition, r nndtr Vandkerchoven,
which started in 1893, effected a march
toward the Nile, penetrating to a great
distance inland. This was all that was
generally known of the expedition nntil
very recently, its movements having
been kept dark. Through a report of
Commandant Franqni, who was left in
charge of the advanced post, which
Vandkerchoven established, the fact has
been disclosed that a number of Belgian
forts have been erected in the Upper
Kile basin. This is the first authorita
tive information that the expedition bad
penetrated to the Upper Kile that has
been made public.
Commandant Franqni has made a re
port to the administration of the Congo
state, Informing the authorities that the
dervishes are menacing his position and
urgently requesting that reinforcements
be sent him before it shall be too late.
On the strength of this it is said that
" King Leopold is projecting another ex
pedition, with the. ostensible purpose of
Strengthening the outposts of the former
on It is suspected in the foreign office,
' however, that, under an agreement with
France, concluded in the autumn of 1894,
King Leopold will co-operate with France
in the establishment of a Franco-Belgian
position on ' the left bank of the Upper
Kile, before the English can secure a
similar position and accurately define
M. Hanotanx, the French minister of
foreign affairs, demands that England,
as the first step in the pending negotia
tions shall define what are supposed to
be the boundaries of her sphere of in
fluence. This demand has acted as a
check to the policy of the foreign office.
The sultan of Turkey holds the suzer
ainty of the whole region in question,
including the equatorial provinces
formerly governed by Emin Pasha. A
section of the cabinet is reported to be
in favor of making a decisive declaration,
claiming the whole valley of the Upper
Kile to be within the British sphere and
denying that the sultan has any rights
in the Emin territory. It is believed
that M. Hanotanx is willing to refer the
matter to arbitration or to conference,
but, on the other hand, it is suspected
that England is afraid to do either, lest
the question of her occupation of Egypt
should become involved. In the mean
time, the diplomatic ad'antage rests
with France, and the strain between the
two governments, despite the pacific
words of M. Hanotanx, becomes inten
sified. The Alleged Decision.
Washington, April 6. The attention
of some members of the cabinet was
called today to a dispatch from Chicago
regarding the publication there of the
supreme court decision on the income
tax, but they declined to express an opin
ion thereon, on the ground it would be
manifestly improper to discuss any
opinions of the court at least until they
had been officially promulgated.
From another, but entirely authentic
source, it was learned that whetever the
decision of the court may be, the presi
dent will not call an extra session of
congress, and even should the decision
declare the law wholly unconstitutional,
be president will adhere to his deter

mination not. to call congress together,
and will so announce.
. All efforts to secure from members of
the supreme court either an authoritive
confirmation or denial of the Chicago
publication prove unavailing. 4. ..
Senator Voorbees, chairman of the
finance committee, when told of the pub
lication today, said : "It may be that a
portion of the law may not be sustained.
I consider there is a possibility of such
result, but I do not know a thing. I do
not believe any one outside of the court
knows a thing about it. But suppose it
should be true that that portion of the
law regarding rents and municipal bonds
should prove to be, in the opinion of the
conrt, unconstitutional, the law will not
be materially impaired. It will still
afford an immense revenue. Estimates
are entirely too low on the revenue
which would be derived from the law as
a whole. Instead of it including from
$15,000,000 to $30,000,000, it will add
$50,000,000, $75,000,000 or even $100,000,
Senator Harris, of the finance commit
tee, declined to discuss the question, as
also did Senator Jones of Arkansas.
Senator Peffer expressed the opinion
that if incomes from rents and bonds
should be eliminated the efficiency of
the law would be materially crippled.
"Leaving out of consideration the
question of the tax on bonds," he said,
"rent is a most important one when one
considers that one-third of the farmers
in the country are renters ; that 52 per
cent of the entire population of the
country at large, and 77 per cent of the
people living in cities of over 100,000
population are ' also thus classed, and
that in New York city the per centage
of renters is 94.- Such - a decision would
result in a great spread of populism."
Officials of the treasury department
utterly discredit the story sent out that
the shortage in the Carson mint will
reach $500,000. They say they have 'no
information that the shortage is more
than $90,000. as stated in an Associated
Press dispatch yesterday. They also
discredit the report that the San Fran
cisco Mining Association has asked to
have all Carson City gold coin recalled,
saying no such information has been re
ceived and there has been no gold coined
at the Carson mint since May 1, 1893.
All coinage prior to that time at that, as
other , mints, is regularly tested by the
government asBay commission.
A. M. Cannon found Dead In His Boom
in a Hotel.
New Yoeev ' April 6. Anthony M.
Cannon, 60 years old, of Spokane, Wash,,
a guest at the Stnrtevant house, was
found dead in his room at the hotel soon
after 2 o'clock this afternoon. The hotel
people notified the coroner's office, and
Deputy Coroner O'Hanlan, after exam
ining the body, declared that no suspi
cions circumstances, indicating suicide,
were visible, and eave a permit for the
removal of the body to an undertaker's.
In the dead man's pockets was found a
card of the bank of Spokane Falls, in
one corner of which was this inscription,
"A. M. Cannon, president." Mr. Can
non has been a guest at the Victoria
hotel for some time, and when that hotel
closed, April 1, he went to the Stnrte
vant honse. . He was last seen about the
hotel at 8 Vclock , last . night. , Up to
about 2 p. m. today he had not been
seen to leave his room, and finally one
of the call-boys was eent to investigate.
As the call-boy could obtain no answer
to his knocks on Mr. Cannon's door it
was forced open and he was found lying
dead in bed. According to the deputy
coroner, Mr. Cannon had been dead sev
eral hours. Death was undoubtedly
caused- by heart failure, for Mr. Cannon
had for many years been noted as the
man with the lowest pulsation on rec
ord. His average pulsation was 38, ex
cept d tiring the past few months, when
it had risen to 44 per minute. Ko insur
ance company would accept Mr. Cannon
as a risk.
Paul F. Mohr, the vice-president of
the Columbia Railway & Navigation
Company, who lives at the Gerlach, in
Kew York, took charge of the tuneral

The readers of this paper will be
pleased to learn that there is at least one
dreaded disease that science has been
able to cure in all its stages, and that is
Catarrh. Hall's Core is the only posi
tive cure known to the medical frater
nity. . Catarrh: being . a, constitutional
disease, requires a constitutional treat
ment. Hall's Catarrh Cure is taken in
ternally, acting directly upon the blood
and mucous surfaces of the- system,
thereby destroying the foundation of the
disease, and giving the patient strength
by building up the constitution and as
sisting nature in doing its work. The

A Scarcity of Beef Cattle.
Reno, Nev. April 6. Not for 10 years
has this state been so free of beef cattle
as at the present time. There is scarcely
a beef steer for sale in Kevada, Grant
county, Or., or that portion of Califor
nia lying east of the Sierras. Last year
at this time there were fully 25,000 head
seeking a market. Eastern buyers have
cleaned np all the beef in this, section.
Cattle have gone up about $2 per head.
There is a better feeling prevailing
among beef people than for 10 years.
''Perhaps you would not think so, bnt
a very large proportion of the diseases
in New York, comes, from carlessnes
about catching cold, "says Dr. Cyrus Ed
son. "It is such a simple thing and so
common that very few people, unless it
is a case of pneumonia, pay any atten
tion to the cold. New York is one of
the healthiest places on the Atlantic
Coast and yet there are a great many
cases of catarrh and consumption which
have their origin in ' this neglect of the
simplest precaution of every day fife.
The most sensible advice is, when you
have one get rid of it as soon as possible.
By all means do not neglect it." Dr. Ed
son does not tell you how to cure a cold
but we will. It will relieve the lungs,
aid expectoration, open the secretions
and soon effect a permanent cure. 50

Exposure to rough weather, dampness,
extreme cold, etc., is apt to bring on an
attack of rheumatism or neuralgia;
chapped hands and face, cracked lips
arid violent itching of the skin also owe
their origin to' cold weather. Dr. Mc
