THE STARS AND

Has Arrived There and Our Flag
Has Been Raised With Appropri
New Yoek, Dec. 27, A correspon

to the New York Times, save: The last
of the Spanish forces in this the pro
vince of Puerto Principe, has left and
the Fifteenth United States infantry has
arrived. Our flag has been raised with
much ceremony by two daughters of the
alcalde, a Cuban, formerly of the autono
mist government, who was reappointed
by General Carpenter, governor of the
Yellow fever and typhoid are said not
to exist here, though eevere malaria pre
vails. Our soldiers are provided with
large hospital tents and cots. The tents
are being floored. The extremely dense
and impenetrable undergrowth on the
bills where the camp is situated was cut
down by ex-Cuban soldiers with their
machetes, the great quantities of guano,
a poieonous plant closely resembling in
appearance the holly, rendering it dang
erous for our men to do the work. The
Cubans, however, are fearless, although
showing the effects of terrible sores on
hands and legs. A plant usually found
growing near the gnano is claimed to be
an antidote for the poison.
Several of the men have been bitten
by ecorpions, but the insects here do
not seem to be as dangerous as else
where. A few drops of ammonia applied
to the Bting prevents further trouble.
Dewey Therefore is Anxious for the Ar
rival of the Naval Recruits.
Nkw Yokk, Dec. 27. A special to the
Tribune from Washington says :
Admiral Dewey cabled to the navy
department asking when he might ex
pect the Buffalo to arrive at Manila, and
requesting that she might be hurried as
much as possible. The Buffalo is carry
ing 500 men to the Asiatic squadron to
take the place ot those whose terms of
service have expired, and who are now
exceedingly anxious to return to the
United States. Many of these men
wonld have ordinarily came home on the
flagship Olympia, which was on the
point of starting for San Francisco when
the Maine was blown op, but were re
tained by Amiral ' Dewey on a cable
warning from Secretary Roosevelt.
The admiral has now informed the
navy department that the conditions in
the Philippines are so materially im
proved that he will send a few officers
and men to San Francisco on the next
army transport which leaves Manila.
He is not yet willing, however, to rec
ommend any reduction of the fleet, and
notwithstanding the reports to the con
trary, he has never intimated any desire
te come home himself, but in fact re
fused to take advantage of the perm is
eion extended to him to temporarily
leave the East and visit Paris when the
peace commission was there. -

Formation of a New Cabinet Intrusted
to a Rabid Opponent of Aguinaldo
The Insurgent Leader Has Fled.
Manila, Dec. 27. A steamer which
has arrived here from Samar reports
that the Tagal insurgents have been in
possession of Kalbaon since December
11. Business there is said to be entirely
suspended and all the Spaniards of the
vicinity have sought refuge in the house
of a man named Scott, an American.
AH efforts to induce the Visayas to join
the revolution have been fruitless.
The situation here so far as the in
surgents are concerned is serious. The
formation of a new cabinet has been in
trusted to a Filipino named Madi, a
rampant, irreconcilable of unknown
antecedents, and a bitter opponent of
Aguinaldo, especially on the question of
It is reported that Aguinaldo refused
to release their prisoners, although the
cabinet decided to accede to the request
of General Otis for their' release.
It is rumored that Aguinaldo has fled
to an inaccessible region back of Cavite
with a tew followere, fearing assassina
tion. An expedition commanded by General
Miller has left here for Iloi'.o.

What is the nse of making a better

not get a better price for it?
Ans. As there" is no difference in the
price the public will buy only the better,
so that while our profits may be smaller
on a single scale they will be much
greater in the aggregate.
How can you get the public to know
your make is the best?
If both articles are brought prominent

be tried and the public will very quickly
pass judgment on them and nse only the

A POPULAR MISTAKE
Regarding Remedies For Dyspepsia and
Tbe national disease of America is in
digestion or in its chronic form, dyspep
sia, and for the very reason that it is so
common many people neglect tak
ing proper treatment for what they con
sider trifling etomach trouble, when as a
matter of fact, indigestion lays the foun
dation for many incurable diseases. No
person with a vigorous, healthy stomach
will fall a victim to consumption. Many
kidney diseases and heart troubles date
their beginning trom poor digestion;
thin, nervous people are really so be
cause their stomachs are out of gear ;
weary languid faded out women owe
their condition to imperfect indiges
tion. When nearly every person you meet
is afflicted with weak digestion it is not
surprising that nearly every secret pat
ent medicine on the market claims to
be a cure for dyspepsia, as well as a
score of other troubles, when in fact, as
Dr. Werthier says, there is but one gen
nine dyspepsia cure which is perfectly
safe and reliable, and moreover, this
remedy is not a patent medicine, but it

Columbia's New Record.
Portland, Dec. 27. Items on the
water front, as usual on a holiday, were
scarce yesterday, but the ' good, fast
steamship Columbia came to the rescue
by breaking her own record between San
Francisco and Portland, and coming
within a few minutes of making the best
time on record. Her time from dock to
dock was but 47 hours and 55 minutes,
while the actual ronning time was 46
hours and 15 minutes. Tbe Columbia,
in command of Captain George Conway,
broke all previonu records on the route
about a year ago, bat the State cut under
that record about a week later, and since
that time no remarkable fast trios have
bet n made until yesterday. A e Captain
Green, who was master of the State
when she made the record passage, is
now in command of the Columbia, he
has to his credit the two fastest passages
that have ever been made on the route.
