ON THE VOYAGE
MM of Seven Sici Soldiers While on
Their Morn Trip From Manila
to 1he Units! Statos.
Among the Convalescent Officers Who
Were Brought Back on the United
States Transport Rio de Janerio
Was Lieutenant Moore, of the
San Fhancisco, Oct. 22. The United
States transport steamer Rio de Janerio
arrived here today from Manila, via
- Hong Kong and Nagasaki. She has on
board 140 sick soldiers and twenty-four
discharged men. Seven men died on
the voyage. They are :
Private Elliot Ordway, company H,
Private Henry H. Stnbe, company F,
Sergeant John A. Glover, company A,
Private Frank Tucker, Company C.
Private Lewis D. Passmore, company
I, First Nebraska
Private Henry D. Shuter, Astor bat
tery. Private J. Fiske, First California.
All the dead were buried at sea, except
Ordway, Fiske and Shuter.
The following convalescent officers re
Lieut.-Col. W. C. Bailey, Eighteenth
Capt. J. Murphy, First Iowa.
Capt. McCain, Fourteenth infantry.
Lieut. Moore, Second Oregon.
Lieut. Bunker, First Minnesota.
Major Wadsworth, department quar
termaster. Most of the passengers are convales
cent, and those who are detained at the
hospital are nearly all doing well and
out of danger.
Shortly after the Rio left Hong Kong
Corporal F. H. Fitzgerald, company G,
First Idaho battalion, disappeared dur
ing the night. A search of the vessel
tailed to reveal any sign of him or a clue
to his whereabouts. The -man was
thought to be mentally deranged, and
the supposition is that he got up in the
night and either fell or jumped over
board. The number of men to be sent on the
remaining transports has been reduced
below the number that the ships carried
on their first passage to Manila, that it
would now seem necessary to make use
of some of the transports not vet re
turned. It is General Merriam's in
tention to send back the City of Puebla
and to discharge from commission the

NO FAITH CURE
ABOUT STUART'S DYSPEPSIA TAB
LETS. They Cure Stomach Troubles and Indi
gestion Anyway, Whether You
Have Faith in Them or Not
Mere faith will not digest your food
for you, will not give an appetite, will
not increase your flesh and strengthen
your nerves and heart, but Stuart's Dys
pepsia Tablets will do these things, be
cause they are composed of the elements
.of digestion, they contain the juices,
acids and peptones necessary to the di
gestion and assimilation of all whole
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets will digest
food If placed in a jar or bottle in water
heated to 23 degrees, and they will do it
much more effectively when taken into
the stomach after meals, whether you
have faith that they will or not.
They invigorate the stomach, . make
pure blood and strong nerves, in the only
way that nature can do it, and that is
plenty of wholesome food well digested.
It is not what we eat, but what we di
gest that does ua good. '
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets are sold by
nearly all druggists at 50 cents for full
sized package, or by mail from the Stu

Salt Lake Has a Rumor that They Will
Salt Lake, Oct. 22. It is etated here
that the expected reorganization of the
Union Pacific, Oregon Short Line and
the Oregon Railroad & Navigation Com
panies will have tho effect of consolidat
ing the Short Line and the Oregon Rail
road & Navigation Company's road into
one system to be operated from Portland,
Inquiry at the general ounces of the
Short Line brought out the statement
that this is what has been expected all
along by the officials of the road.
One who is well posted in the secrets
of the Union Pacific said that the rumor
was well founded, and made the further
statement that in less than one year the
same combination would control the
Central Pacific railway as well, and that
the meetings in this city and the election
of the Union ' Pacific officials on the
Short Line board were only the begin
ning of the working out of a design that
will be far reaching in its effect.
A Private Letter Giving Some Features
of the Conditions in Manila.
Washington, Oct. 22. A private let
ter has been received from an officer in
Manila by another officer in the Var de
partment giving some features of the
coudition of the army in Manila. At
that time there were' about 600 sick in
the hospital. The climate makes exer
tion very difficult and everyone is slow.
The troops are scattered about the city
in companies, and hold all the streets to
keep out the insurgents.
Since the rain ceased the warm weath
er has been very oppressive, and sick
ness has increased. Typhoid, dysen
tery and malaria have prevailed, not
more so tha'n one should expect in the
tropics. The letter says that General
Otis works bard and looks into every de
tail of the army under his command.
Deafness Cannot De 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 lininar 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; nine cases 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
Cure. Send for circulars ; free.

CAN AVOID IT
Frenchmen Talk of Pending Negotia

changed The Admiralty is oh a
War Footing Ready to Fight on
a Moment's Notice.
London, Oct 22. Eever since Great
Britain and France began to dispute
over Egypt, nor during the moss acute
stages of the Niger differences between
those countries, has the situation looked
so ommoas as today. In spite of the
hope expressed in the journals of-.both
countries that the matter would be
amicably arranged, it is a fact that the
French naval and military authorities
are making feverish preparations for
war, and, though calm reigns at the
British dockyards at Portsmouth, Chat
ham and Devonport, it is only the calm
Significant orders have been arriving
from the admiralty, 'indicating that
Great Britain and France are on the
brink of war. The admiralty has or
dered every seagoing ehip to have its
crew made up to the full complement,
as ordered in case of mobilization. The
order practically means the complete
filling prospectively of every ship's com
pany in detail. Four torpedoboats that
were about to be fitted with new water
tube boilers have Lad their orders coun
termanded, and will be.instructed to re
draw their stores.
Officers on leaves of absence and un
employed, have been ordered to hold
themselves in readiness to commission
reserves if required.
The French statesman, however, still
cling to the hope that the Marquis of
Salisbury will offer some exchange
which will enable them- to retire from
Fashoda without apparent sacrifice of
dignity. This hope is based on a con
versation between Lord Salisbury and
Barnn de Courcel, the French ambassa
dor at London, which figures in a most
important dispatch in the yellow . book
which the French government will issue
tomorrow. Frenchmen infer from the
attitude of the British premier that he
is willing to discuss the French claims,
and they even talk of negotiations be
ing in progress.
The Englieh newspapers, however,
vigorously combat this impression, and
warn France not to be led away by such
illusions. They declare that the evacua
tion of Fashoda must precede anything
The French naval preparations were
at first declared to be mere routine ar
rangements, but they are now admitted
to be directed against Great Britain.
The French dockyards and arsenals are
working at full pressure and preparing
warships and torpedo-boats for active
Telegrams from Balmoral intimate
that Queen Victoria is following the
trend of events with much chagrin. Her
aversion to war, in the declining years of
her reign, is well known, and is an ap
preciable factor in the situation.
