Cannon Boomed and Whistles Shrieked
Beside Which Every Person of
Souud Lung Cheered Then Cheered
New Yobk, Aug. 20. New York and
the nation have fitly signalized their ap
preciation of the achievements of the
victorious fiaet. Early this morning a
citizens' committee of ten boarded Ad
miral Sampson's flagship near Tomp
kinsville. The welcoming ceremonies
were short, but impressive. The cere-
monies over, amid the hoarse shrieking
of steam whistles and the hosannas of
the throngs on the shores and water,
the mayor and committee boarded the
eteamer Glen Island.
There was a salute of cannon, and the
cheers of the people and thousands of
whistles made an indescribable din.
Soon the monster pageant was in line.
The great battleships moved slowly
and majestically. As governor's island
was passed there was a tremendous re
port from the gens that did so much
execution at Santiago and Guantanamo.
The people on shore and afloat went
wild. They yelled and screamed, waved
Hags and jumped up and down in pa
triotic fervor, and so it was all the way
to Grant's tomb, where there was a final
demonstration of patriotic fervor, such
as New York has never witnessed be
fore. The pageant was viewed and
cheered by hundreds of thousands of
people. It was a magnificent and inde
scribable scene, and one never to be
The flagship New York led Sampson's
fleet into port this morning, passing the
Hook at 8 a.m. She was followed by
the Iowa and Indiana. Then came the
Brooklyn and Massachusetts, the Ore
gon guarding the rear.
Sampson is looking far belter than
when the war commenced, and is very
glad to get home. Speaking of the
crews, and especially the crews of the
Indiana, Iowa and New York, who have
had no shore liberty for eeven months,
he said : "They have borne privations in
a manner beyond all praise."

Notice to Delinquent Taxpayers.
The delinqent taxes of Wasco county,
as shown on th6 rolls now in the hands
of the sheriff are f 60,000, an amount al
most equal to the indebtedness of the
county. Every citizen will doubtless
admit that this state of affairs should
not exist, and that all taxes should be
collected. Ou account of hard times
in the past the county court Las shown
leniency to taxpayers, but that leniency
has reached the limit, and the court
cannot wait longer on delinquents to
make settlements. For this reason a
warrant has been attached to each de
linquent roll commanding the sheriff to
collect all taxes by seizure and eale of
property. With a bountiful crop now
in eight, there can no longer be any rea
sonable excuse for the non-payment of
taxes. The sheriff is bound by oath to
comply with the terms of the warrants
attached to the tax rolls for the collec
tion thereof, and has no option in the
matter. Delinquent taxpayers can save
the cost of seizure and sale of property
by settling their taxes at once.

Deafness Cannot be. Cared
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 mucous lining of the Eus
tachian Tube. When ' this tube is in
flamed you have a rumbling sound or
imperfect hearing, and when it Is en
tirely closed, Deafness is the result, and
unless the inflammation can be taken
out and this tube restored to its normal
condition, hearing will be destroyed for
ever; ninecasis out of ten are caused
by catarrh, which is nothing but an in
flamed condition of the mucous sur
faces. We will give One Hundred Dollars for
any case of Deafness (caused by catarrh)
that cannot be cured by Hall's Catarrh
Care. Send for circulars; free.
