WILL BE RUSHED
Lack of Transportation Facilities in the
Pacific and Consequent Necessity
of Sending Part of the Troops By
Way of the Suez Canal the Cause
of the Delay.
Washington, Jan. 3. General Otis,
at Manila, has been notified by cable of
the arrangements that have been com
pleted to speedily reinforce hia command
by the dispatch of six regiments of reg
ular infantry. The Twentieth, now at
Fort Leavenworth, will sail from San
Francieco on the transport Scandia,
January 7th, and is timed to reach Ma
nila by the end of the month.
The force under General Law ton is
expected to reach the Philippines the
scond week in February. The other
regiments selected for garrison duty in
the Philippines, the Third and the
Twenty-second, will depart from San
Francisco aa soon as transports are avail
able. The army steamer Senator, which
left Manila December 15th with the As
tor battery and other troops bound for
San Francieco, is due there early In next
week, and will be ready to return with
either the Third or the Twenty-second
regiment five days later.
While everything is being done by the
war department officials to expedite the
departure of the troops in compliance
with repeated intimations from General
Otis that he is anxious to exchange his
volunteers for regulars, it has been found
almost impossible to start them much
earlier than January 15th, which was
the time set when It was first decided
two weeks ago to send a portion of the
needed force by way of New York on ac
count of the lack of transportation facil
ities in the Pacific.
Until these troops reach the Philip
pines it is not believed by the authori
ties that General Otis will undertake
any aggressive operations for the exten
sion of American sovereignty over the
various provinces now held by the in
surgents, although he has full directions
in the matter, but will reserve his forces
for use in emergencies, should the in
surgents grow unruly, ' particularly in
the vicinity oi Manila.
Confidence was expressed at the war
department that there would be no bat
tle at Iloilo until every resource ot peace
able negotiation to induce' the rebels to
evacuate the city had been exhausted.

in the locality to leave. When the Al
Ki left Skagway no blood had been
shed, but trouble was imminent.
On reaching Indian river the miners
were informed that two men, names un
known, had frozen to death on the Yu
kon between Fort Selkirk and Dawson.
They were guarding a scow load of frozen
dressed beef, and perished one excep
tionally cold night in November.
Several hundred tons of mail for Daw

awaiting ice transportation. The winter
has been so open that Lake Bennett re
mained unfrozen up to December 23. -
In October speculators cornered the
butter and tobacco market at Dawson,
and since then both articles have been
bringing from $2 to 3 a pound.

La Grippe Successfully Treated.
"I have just recovered from the sec
ond attack of La Grippe this year," says
Mr. Jas. A. Jones, publisher of the
Leader, Mexia, Texas. "In the latter
case I used Chamberlain's Cough Rem
edy, and I think with considerable suc
cess, only being in bed a little over two
days against ten days for the former at
tack. The second attack I am satisfied
would have been equally as bad as the
first but for the use of this remedy as 1
had to go to bed in about six hours after
being 'struck' with it, while in the first
case I was able to attend to business
about two days before getting 'down.7

Civil Administration Gets Firmly on Its
Feet Autonomists to . Have No
Representation in General Brooke's
New Yore, Jan. 3. A dispatch to the
Tribune, from Havana says : .American
rule in Cuba works smoothly. Generals
Brooke and Ludlow are beginning the
reorganization of the civil administra
tion satisfactorily. The Cubans are well
pleased. Part of the Spaniards are sul
len, but the commercial classes are satis
fied with the new regime.
The understanding is that no mem
bers of the former autonomist cabinet
are to be included in General Brooke's
proposed council of advisors. They v are

the military authorities, has abolished

paper in the government office. They
Prompt steps have also been taken for
improving the Bection "of hygiene.
The postoffice service for the city and
the foreign mail shows' improvement.
The confusion still is due to inefficient
employes. The demoralization in the
island service cannot be remedied im
mediately. . Chief Director Eathburne's
first order after taking charge was to
abolish the frankins privilege, which
has been grossly abused.
The police service is being slowly or
ganized. No general disorder exists.
Two or three homicides during the last
two days have been of the ordinary
kind, and have had no significance.
Cubans and Spaniards are getting along
together pretty well. Some fears of social
demoralization-, of which Americans
complain, will be corrected when the
police organization is more advanced.
The military authorities do not want to
use troops for duty of this kind.
Bow to Prevent Pneumonia.
You are perhaps aware that pneu
monia always results from a cold or from
an attack of La Grippe. During the
epidemic of La Grippe a few years ago
when so many cases resulted in pneu
monia, it was observed that the attack
was never followed by that disease when
Chamberlain's Cough Bemedy was used.
It counteracts any tendency of a cold or
La Grippe to result in that dangerous
disease: It is the best remedy in the
world for bad colds and La Grippe.

A Most Remarkable Wedding.
Canal. Dovbb, O., Jan. 3. A most re
markable wedding has just taken place
at the villiage of Trail, 10 miles from
here, four brothers being married to four
Bisters. The four knota were tied at the
home of the brides, who are the daugh
ters of a farmer named James Hoch
etetter. There agea-range from 18 to 28,
and the ages of their respective husbands
vary only slightly. The grooms are four
eons of John Summers. ,
The ceremony o marrying the four
couples occupied almost an hour, the
same clergyman performing all.

by local applications, as ' they cannot
reach the diseased portion of the ear
There is only one way to cure deafness
and thafta 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 ; 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)

Cure. Send for circulars ; free.

- Fatal Folding Bed.
Springfield, 111., Jan. 2. rMrs. Lu
cretia Kent, a widow, met ber death in
a manner horrible in the extreme. Her
fate was revea'.cd when a friend, enter
ing the house, found her, dead body.
One band was pinioned inextricably un
der a heavy folding bed. The body was
decomposed, showing that death had oc
cured several days ago. When found,
the woman's broken band was still
clasped in the bed as in a blacksmith's
vise. . How the' accident happened will
never be known definitely. - '
The woman lived alone in the house,
and that accounts for the tardy dis
covery of the body.
La Grippe is again epidemic. Every
precaution should be taken to avoid it.
Its specific cure is One Minute Cough
Cure. A. J. Shepard, publisher Agri
cultural Journal and Advertiser, Elden,
Mo., says; "No on will be disappoint
ed in using One Minute Cough Cure for
La Grippe." . Pleasant to take, quick to
