FATE OF GIL-
Otis Intercepts Messages Drjlej. Vol

Government Officials Greatly Pleased
With the Stand Taken bj Governor
Washington, April 22. General Otie
cables the president that be has inter
cepted many cables and messages from
politicians and state leaders in America
to volunteers in the Philippines urging
the men to stand on their rights and re
fuse the government farther service,
now that peace is formally and finally
declared. The president has instructed
General Otis to send copies of the same
meesages and all evidence be can tied
of sedition there, and it is believed that
some one may be dealt with harshly for
treason and sedition.
General Otis coneiders the offense
grave, and as the messages are clearly
within the law against sedition, be has
held up all eucb and notified Wash
ington. In this connection government officials
are greatly pleased with' the expression
of Governor Geer, of Oregon, who de
clares it would be a disgrace to the
state and unjust to the Oregon volun
teers to request their return at a time
when it would embarrass the adminis

THE AIR LINE
Wireless Telegraphy Experiments in
Chicago, April 22. Professor Jerome
J. Greene, the new disciple of 'Marconi,
Bat at his receiving instrument placed
on the eighth floor of the Marquette
building tonight and received telegraphic
signals sent via the air lino from the
Tribune building, two blocks away. ' It
meant success for his wireless telegraphy
experiment for that distance, and was a
triumph for the young scientist over con
ditions which were exceedingly unfavor
able. The first test of the day, when an
attempt was made to communicate from
the Dearborn station at Polk street to the
Tribune building, bad proved a failure.
Subsequent investigation discloeed the
fact that local disturbances at the send
ing station probably were responsible.
In the second experiment signals were
transmitted clearly and accurately from
one room to another through walls and
three thick doors. The second test sent the
dots and dashes to the sounder across
Dearborn street without a break. Then
Professor Greene consented to make the
test over the long distance, and the ap
paratus was transferred to the Marquette
building, a distance of about 150 yards.
The vertical wire was lowered from' the
16th floor, and the receiver waB placed on
the eighth floor. When all was ready
for' trial, word was sent through the
telephone to the sending station, where
the professor's assistant, Albert Kachur,
was waiting the command. The trial
was a euccess. Further experiments
will be made Monday.

initiation of a new campaign which is

it is understood to. agree closely with the

CATARRH OF '
A Pleasant, Simple, Safe but Effectual
Cure for It.
Catarrh of the stomach has long been '
considered the next thing to incurable.
The usual symptoms are a full or
bloated sensation after eating, accomp
anied some times with sour or watery
isinge, a formation of gases, causing
pressure on the lungs and heart and
difficult breathing; headache, fickle ap
petite, nervousness and a general played
out and languid feeling.
There is often afoul taste in the mouth,
coated tongue, and if the interior of
stomach could be seen it would show a
slimy, inflamed condition.
The cure for this common and obstinate
disease is found in a treatment which
causes the food to be readily and
thoroughly digested before it has time to
ferment and irritate the delicate mucous
surfaces of the stomach.
To secure a prompt and healthy digest
ion is the one necessaiy thing to do, and
when normal digestion is secured the
catarrhal condition will have disap
According to Dr. Harlanson the safest
and best treatment is to use after each
meal a tablet, composed of Diastrse,
Aseptic Pepsin, a little Nox, Golden Seal
and fruit acids.
These tablets can now be found at all
drug stores under the name of Stuart's
Dyspepsia Tablets, and, not being a pat
ent medicine, can be used with perfect
safety and aesurrance that healty appe
tite and thorough digestion will follow
their regular use after meals.
Mr. N. J. Booher.of 2710-Dearborn St.,
Chicago, 111., writes: "Catarrh is a
local condition resulting from a neglected
cold in the head, whereby the lining
membrane of the nose becomes inflamed
and the poisonous discharge therefrom,
passing back into the throat, reaches the
stomach, thus producing catarrh of the
stomach. Medical authorities prescribed
for me three years for catarrh of the
stomach without cure, but today I am
the happiest of men aiter using only one
box of Stuart's Dyspepsia - Tablets.. I
cannot find appropriate words to express
my good feeling. I have found flesh,
appetite and sound reat from their use.
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets is the safest
preparation as well as the simplest and
most convenient remedy for any form of
indigestion, catarrh of the stomach,
biliousness, sour stomach, beaj-t barn and
b'oa ting after meals.

troubles, by addressing the F. A. Stuart
