CANAL IS UNCLE SAM'S
Government Must Control
GREATER REPUBLIC NOT A FACTOR
Administration's Flan of Procedure
tSused Solely on Existing Con
vention With Nicaragua.
Washington, Aug. 4. No matter
what the attitude of the Greater Repub
lic of Central America may be, it is the
intention of the administration to rec
ommend governmental control of the
Nicaragua canal when congress assem
bles next December. This was made
plain at a conference at the state depart
ment participated in by Assistant Secre
taries Adee and Gridler, Senator Mor
gan, former Senator Miller and Mr.
Merry, the recently appointed minister
to Nicaragua, Salvador and Costa Rica,
regarding the complications which have
grown out of the refusal of the govern
ments of Nicaragua and Salvador to re
ceive Mr. Merry.
It is practically decided that Mr.
Merry shall go to t Costa Bica, and that
the headquarters of the legation shall
be transferred to that country from
Nicaragua. , No steps will be taken to
make the transfer, however, until the
governments of Nicaragua and Salvador
have again been heard from.
The administration believes there is
no necessity of entering even into a new
convention with Nicaragua with a view
to securing authority for the construc
tion of a waterway. The program which
will follow will be based on the provis
ions of the convention now in force, as
well as the concession which was granted
to an American company by the Nica
raguan government for the construction
of the canal. This concession will not
expire for Jhree years.
Acting in accordance with instructions
of the state department, Minister Baker
is watching every move of the oppo
nents of the canal in Nicaragua and re
porting to the state department, so that
in case of necessity prompt action may
be taken by the authorities.
The Walker commission, which has
been holding meetings at the state de
partment, will make a preliminary re
port to congress at the beginning of the
session, setting forth its estimate.
Should this report show that the cost
will not be greater than $100,000,000 the
president will probably have something
to say in his first annual message in re
gard to the advisability of the passage of
a bill by congress guaranteeing the con
struction of the canal under govern
NICOLA TESIA'S ACHIEVEMENT.
Complete System of Wireless Telegraph
New York, Aug. 4. Nicola Tesla
announced to day the com pletion of his
latest discovery, the "simultaneous
transmission of messages by means of
the earth's electrical currents to as
many scattered points on the surface of
the globe as may desired." This he re
sards as by far his greatest achievement.
To a few intimates he gave a thrilling
demonstration of the operation of his
device for arresting and subjecting to
control under natural laws the natural
substances in and about the earth.
His latest invention or discovery is to
produce such a disturbance of the elec
tricity of the earth which can be felt and
noted simultaneously at all parts of the
"I am producing," said he in the
course of his demonstration, "an elec
trical disturbance of intense magnitude,

"And the result will be?"
"That is almost incomprehensible.
This electrical disturbance by means of
certain eimple instruments, can be felt
and appreciated at any point of the
globe. In this way messages can be
sent the entire. . earth around, and be

Furious Bovlnes Charged Upon a Fun
Cincinnati, Aug. 4. While the funer
al procession which was taking the re
mains of John Mulvihill to the grave
was passing Sycamore and Church
streets, a drove of steers passed. Sev
eral animals got into a fierce fight and
ran into the carriages. One carriage
contained Policeman John Connor and
ex-Alderman Richard Ennis. Both
were thrown to the street and severely
The cattle lunged at one another and
crashed against the carriage in which
the Mulvihill family was seated, break
ing the carriage door. The members of
the family jumped from the carriage
and ran into a house. Men pounded
the brutes on the head with clubs and
stones, but were unable to separate
them. They ran against the hearse and
almost upset it.
The mourners and people on the
streets were panic-stricken, and several
of them had narrow escapes from being
trampled to death. A number of men
then made a rush on the animals and
they were finally driven away. The
mourners re-entered their carriages and
the procession was resumed.
A Strike at Atlanta.
Atlanta, Ga., Aug. 4. Two hundred
women and girls employed at the Fulton
Bag & Cotton Mills, in this city, struck
this morning because of the employment
of negro hejp by the management.
The operatives learned yesterday that
25 colored women were to be put to work
in the folding department today. This
morning the white women asked Presi
dent Eleas whether it was true that he
proposed to put negroes to work with
them. He said be did, and the white
women refused to go to work.
At noon tbe 400 men employed in the
mills walked out in obedience to the
orders of the Textile Workers' Union,
and in sympathy with the striking fe
male operatives. This forced the clos
ing down pf the factory. Eight hun
dred men, women and ctiildren are
affected by the strike.

MATTER OP A SINGLE WORD.
An Alleged Blonder In tne
Boundary Treaty. .
Ottawa, Aug. 4. R. W. Scott, secre
tary of state, was interviewed regarding
the statement from Washington claim
ing that Great Britain on the official
maps had drawn the boundary. JTxie on
the Pacific coast so as to deprive the
United States of hundreds of miles of
territory adjoining the Clondyke gold
fields. He said he had gone into the
question with a member of the Mac
kenzie administration in 1878, and the
point now raised was discussed
"The treaty of St. Petersburg of 1825,"
said he, "defines the line dividing Rus
sian territory, now Alaska, from British
by a line drawn north from the foot of
Prince of Wales island thiough Portland
channel nntil it struck the mountains,
when the method of delimination was
set forth. The map will show that a
line running north from the foot of
Prince of Wales island must go through
the Behm canal, and that to reach Port
land canal the line would have to go
east through the open sea a considerable
distance before it could reach Portland
channel or canal.
"The British contention as shown by
the dispatches of George Canning to Sir
Charles Bagot, when British ambassador
to St. Petersburg, is that Portland was
to be in British territory and the words
Portland canal' in the convention was a
mistake for Behm canal or else what is
now called Portland canal was not. then
so ' called. This supported by the
physical'impossibility of running a line
due north through Portland canal from
the foot of Prince of Wales island, so
that Canadian maps show tbe boundary
line as running north through the Behm
"Tbe difference is great in view of the
discoveries of gold, and it can only be
settled by international arbitration.
The disputed territory with the ten ma
rine leagues back from the coast added
could not, however, embrace the present
gold fields of the Clondyke, which are
clearly in British territory, because they
are well east of the 141st meridian, which
is tbe recognized boundary to the
What use is there in eating when food
does you no good in fact, when it does
yon more harm than good, for such is
the case if it is not digested?
If you have a loathing for food there
is no use of forcing it down, tor it will
not be digested. You must restore the
digestive organs to their natural strength
and cause the food to be digested, when
an appetite will come, and with it a re
lish for food.
The tired, languid feeling will give
place to vigor and energy ; then you will
put flesh on your bones and become
strong. The Shaker Digestive Cordial
as made by the Mount Lebanon Shakers
contains food already digested and is a
digester of foods as well. Its action is
prompt and its effects permanent.

Remarkable Cnre of Chronic Diarrhoea.
In 1862, when I served my country as
a private in Company A, 167th Penn

chronic diarrhoea. It has given me
great deal of trouble ever since. I have

am entirely cured. I cannot be thankful
