posed of finally, it will be considered by
the senate every legislative day to the
exclusion of all, except purely routine,
business. This agreement will have
the effect of cutting off all debate on
the Philippines question -or other mat
ters, except by unanimous consent of.
the senate, unless the senators choose
to discuss other questions in the time
they are to devote to the financial bill.
Today a number of amendments were
offered to the financial bill, among
them being one by Aldrich, chairman
of the finance committee; providing
that nothing in the bill shall interfere
with efforts to secure I international
bimetallism with concurrence of, the
leading nations of the world. f
The republican members manifested
no surprise, and the democrats received-the
amendment with sarcastic smiles.
'Thre was but tittle discussion. Sena
tor Aldrich said, in reply to questions,
that the object jof the-amendment was
to meet the criticism nhat the republi
can party had abandoned the position
for international bimetallism, taken by
its St. Louis convention. The vote on
the amendment showed a strict divi

Wasted Money
I am boned to aay that if it had not; been1 for Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery, I would
have been in my grave two or three years ago" writes Mr. 'Daniel A. Carter, of Yost, Rowan Co.,
N. C ! Six years ago last Augnst I was attacked with malarial fever; was in bed nine days, and then
taken with chills. Had this six mcnths. My spleen became enlarged, and I was in bed off and on
for four years. I went, to the doctors, and some of them said I had dyspepsia, others said I had
liver trouble. The last doctor I had called it fchronic liver and stomach disease. So I paid out
money and nothing did me any good. I borrowed one of Dr. Pierce's Common Sense Medical
Advisers from one of my neighbors, and read about the Doctor's success. Last August, two years
ago, 'I' commenced taking Dr. Pierce's medicines, and Used ten bottles, and, now I can do as big a
day's work, as any man. I am 32 years old. I now weigh 1S0 pounds.1'

lie down for coughing, and she got very low. I thought she never could be
cured. Then I got four bottles of Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery, and
she took the whole of it, and is all right now. She is stouter now than oeiore
we were married. If it had not 1C en for Dr. Pierce's medicines, she would
have died in a short while. We cannot praise this medicine enough. She is
taking care of the baby and does all of the housework, including the washing."
The Best Blood Purifier ;

September I gave out entirely with what the physicians pronounced enlarge

ident ha appointed Circuit Judge

new Philippine commission.
The appointment of Judge Taft
marks the first selection for the new
Philippine commission. There will be
five; members of the commission, and
all of them will be civilians. Mr. Den
by and Prof. Worcester have been in
vited ti accept the appointments, but
so far have not,ignfied their inten
sions. As some surprise has been
caused by the willingness of Judge Taft
to surrender a life position of the dig
nity and emoluments of a United State,
circuit judge to join the commission,
it may be said the prevalent is that,
as soon as the commission shall have
succeeded in replacing the existing
military government in the Philippines
with a stable government. Jntig Taft
