JLonoon, Aug. 11. Advices received

Cambon will receive authority this after

The president's answer, however, was
then being transmitted to the Spanish
government at the same time. It is

By October iotb. ,
San Fbancisco, Aug. 11. About 9300
of the troops which are to go to the
Philippines are still here. The Arizona
and Scandia will take away 33U0, leav
ing 6000 to be forwarded. This includes
the Eighth California, which was turned
over to Major-General Otis.
The First Washington has not been
attached to the Eighth army corps, and
will therefore not go to Manila, unless
later orders are issued aesigning it to
duty in the Philippines.
It is expected that the Australia and
Sydney will reach this city from Manila
about August 15th. They will be im
mediately fitted out for a return trip to
the Philippines with troops, and will be
followed by the City of Peking, which is
due here about the 24th. These vessels
will probably carry the Fifty-first Iowa,
the Twentieth Kansas, and the First
Tennessee. General Merriam desires to
have all the troops embarked for Manila
not later than October 10th.

the Call says :
Serious trouble in the interior of
Alaska is apprehended by the United
Food riota are feared at Fort Yukon
and other up-river pointe, growing out
of the failure of the transportation com
panies to get supplies in there, by rea
son of the prevailing low water.
Acting on instructions received from
Washington, Major-General Merriam

them if necessary, and will transport his
troops and supplies to their destination
with all possible dispatch. A form of
military government will be established
and good order maintained in Alaska,

SPECIAL MARKET L.ETTER.
Something of Interest to Citoclcmen and
We publish the following market let
ter, which has been received by Mr.
Mac Allister, in the hope that those of
our readers who are interested in its
contents may be benefitted thereby :
Since the date of our last letter there
have been general rains over the corn
country and the condition of the crop
materially improved. It is now gener
ally believed that a fairly good crop of
corn will be made, and in consequence
during the past week prices of stockera
and feeders have advanced considerably
and trade has been active.
Receipts of Western grass beef cattle
and also of corn-fed beef cattle have
been moderate at this market during the
past week, but the receipts at other
markets have been liberal and prices
have declined 10c to 16c, except upon
the very best corn-feds. In consequence
of the improved condition of the corn
crop, stockers and feeders have improved
in price. We quote Western grass beef
steers at $3.75 to $4.50 ; cows and heifers,
$3 to $4; Western stockers and feeders,
yearling Bteers, $4.20 to $4.80; two-year-olds,
$3 90 to $4.50; three and four year
olds, $3.65 to $4.50.
Receipts of Western sheep still con
tinue to be moderate, and trade has been
active although prices at this and all
all other marketa have declined during
the week, and we now quote Western
weathers at $3.60 to $4.10; ewes, $3.50
to $3.75 ; yearlings, $3.85 to $4.50 ; lambs,
$4.25 to $5.25.
Sheep owners will be glad to learn
that good facilities for resting and fill
ing their eheep before putting them on
the South Omaha market, can be found
at Fremont, on the Union Pacific, and
at Lincoln, on the B. & M. These place3
have good yards and good pastures and
charges are reasonable hay at 60c per
cwt, and pasturage at 12C per bead for
24 boure. Lincoln has good water fa
cilities, and the Fremont pastures reach
the Platte river, giving them the best
possible facilities. Owners will find it
of great advantage, especially when
making large shipments, to unload and
feed at these points and ship to the
South Omaha market in lots of two to
five cars each day.
Our baby has been continually troub
led with colic and cholera infantum since
bis birth, and all that we could do tor
him did not seem to give more than
temporary relief, until we tried Cham
berlain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea
Remedy. Since giving that remedy be
has not been troubled. We want to
give you this testimonial as an evidence
of our gratitude not that you need it to
advertise your meritorious remedy. G

HOT IN HARVEST FIELDS.
Men Compelled to Quit Work By the Ex
According to W. H. L-so, who has ju3t
returned from the graiu section of East
ern Oregon, the tamers will yet cave to
pay a high price for the threshing of
their wheat. The excessive heat, Mr.
Leo says, is driving the men out of the
fields bp the dozens, and even now the
farmers are looking for new hands.
"When I went to Oiex," said Mr. Leo,
"the" farmers had - all the men they
wanted. The pay was good and all were
satisfied. The first hot day several were
taken sick, and others had to leave their
work on account of the heat. After three
or .four days the thermometer ran up to
116 in the shade at Olex, and none of us
could stand the burning sun. Eight
men bad to quit. Four were prostrated
and hffd to be taken to Arlington for
treatment. I myself was overcome, af
ter an experience which I never shall
forget. When I first noticed the heat it
did not seem to be intense. Gradually ,
though, it became hotter until I thought
my brain was on fire. Then I seemed to
become cooler, and I remembered no
more nnti! I found myself on ti e bank
of the creek with several of my fellow
laborers bathing my head. They told
me I had fainted in the field.
"During the night at Olex the beat
was something terrific. The mercury
generally stood about 78, and it was im
possible for anyone to sleep. The smell
of food was simply nauseating, after the
long hot night, and the plates would te
left untouched. In the morning it was
simply impossible for any one to eat
"I came away Saturday night, and
eight others left at the same time.
When we were in Arlington we heard
that numbers of men had left other
places, and that the farmers, in order to
obtain help, were offering an advance of
50c a day.' The weather up there will
moderate soon, and they will not have
any trouble in getting plenty of help at
the increased pay." Oregonian,
Made Captives of 150 Men.
Washington, Aug. 12. Yesterday the

dealer of Pulaski, Ky., says: "After
suffering for over a week with flux, and

Deafness Cannot beiCured
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 ia caused by an inflamed con
dition of the mucous lining of the Eus
tachian Tube, : When this tube is in
flamed you have a rumbling sound or
imperfect hearing, aud when it Is en
tirely closed, Deafness ia the result, and
unless the inflammation can be taken
out and this tube restored to its normal
condition, hearing will be destroyed for
ever; nine caws out of ten are caused
by catarrh, which ia nothing but an in
flamed condition of the mucous sur
