Washington, Sept. 10. A copy of a

The baron Is expected to return today,

States m Condition Precedent.
The text of the note Is as follows:
The government of the emperor holds
as preliminary to entering upon diplo
matic relations with the Chinese gov
ernment that those persons must be
delivered up who have bt-en proved to
be the original and real instigators of
the outrages against international law
which have occurred at Peking. The
number of those, who were merely in
struments in carrying out the outrages
Is too great. Wholesale executions
would "be contrary to the civilized con
science, and the circumstances of uch
a group of leaders cannot be complete
ly ascertained. But a few whose guilt
Is notorious should be delivered up and
Kaiser la Fishing- for Whales.
"The representatives of the powers
at Peking are In a position to give or
bring forward convincing evidence.
Less importance attaches to the num
ber punished than to tbelr character
as chief Instigators as leaders. The
government believes It can count on
the unanimity of all the cabinets iu
regard to this point, insomuch as In
difference to the idea of Just atone
ment would be equivalent to indiffer
ence to a repetition of the crime. The
government proposes, therefore, that
the cabinets concerned should Instruct
their representatives at Peking to In
dicate those leading Chinese person
ages from whose guilt in Instigating
or perpetrating outrages all doubt Is
Signed "VON BUELOW."

The state department has been all
along directing its efforts to the speedy
opening of negotiations for a final set
tlement with the Chinese government,
and has so far not been heard from
relative to the matter of punishments
beyond the indirect reference con
tained In the notes that have defined
the government's purposes. The ques
tion Is now presented plainly whether
or not the negotiations shall be pre
ceded with a decision on this point.

They Will Urge Congress to Modify the
Patau! Medicine Tax.
Chicago, Sept. 19. The twenty
sixth annual convention of the Na
tional Druggists' association convened

America opened its convention to act
In conjunction with the druggists. The
two associations represent 800 of the
leading wholesale druggists of the
country. Between 400 and 500 dele
gates are present.
The enactment of a national pure
drug law to -be urged by the conven
tion will be an attempt to regulate
the inspection snd sale of drugs by a
federal statute Instead of, as at pres
sent. by the laws of the various states.
Modification of the war stamp tax
also will be urged. Before the ad
journment on Friday the associations
expect to have a committee on its
way to Washington to present their
project before the congressional com
mittees. Insurance Company Accused.

Nebraska State Itar Association Diprnssca
Fifty or seventy-five members of tho
9tato bar association met in this city
yesterday and considered tho legisla
tion of Interest to the profession and
to the people, says the State Journal.
The meeting was held at the etate
capital in representative hall, but as
tho supreme court was hearing oral
argument at the same time many at
torneys were unable to attend the
meeting of the association. Judge E.
Wakeley of Omaha, president, and
Iloseoa Pound of Lincoln, secretary,
wero at their posts when tho hour for
the meeting arrived.
The special businces to be considered
was the formulation of a plan to re
lieve the overcrowdoJ condition of the
supreme court docket, which now con
tains over l,G0O cases. Tho committee
on legislation recommended the enact
ment of a law creating a commission
not to comprise less than six attorneys
to aid the court. As an expedient for
temporary relief the commissioner sys
tem was favored by nearly every law
yer present, but some contended that
it was unconstitutional and that lhe
better way was to go before the people
with a constitutional amendment pro
viding for the election of an increased
number of supreme judges. As a re
sult of the meeting some interesting
discussions were brought out, but- no
action was tatten further than to in
struct all standing cGmmittea to bring
bills embodying their ideas before the
next annual meeting of tho association
which will be . held sometime, "during

Miller of Omaha Becomes Insane.
From Wednesday's Daily.
Deputy Sheriff McBride returned
from Greenwood last evening with an
insane man named Smith. The author
ities at Greenwood reportthat the man
came to that place Monday evening,
and that his queer actions at once at
tracted attention. He imagines that
be is being followed by people who in
tend to kill him. The unfortunate
man is very despondent, and nothing
has been learned as to where he came
from or the cause of his condition.
There is a mystery connected with
this unfortunate case, and those famil
iar with the circumstances are in
clined to believe that Smith was doped
by a companion who was seen with
him Monday evening, but" who has
since mysteriously disappeared. The
suspicion is strengthened by the fact
that Smith, in the course of his mutter
ings, froquently speaks of some green
backs which he had at the time he ar
rived in Greenwood and which are now
Hopes are entertained that the man
will soon recover sufficiently to give an
intelligent account of himself.

A Sad Misfortune.
Dr. George L. Miller, the veteran
physician, editor and political writer
of Omaha, is at present confined at St.
Bernard's hospital in Council Bluffs.
Dr. Miller has been suffering for some
timo from a mental ailment, and his
disease took a, violent form Monday
evening. It is said he spent a portion
of the evening in the lobby of the Pax
ton hotel, where ho attracted some at
tention by speaking disjointedly about
a fortune of $4,000,000 that had just
been left him. He insisted on hiring
twenty carriages to celebrate the
event. Ho afterwards became so vio
lent that it was found necessary to take
him to the police station for safe keep
ing. It is thought this outbreak was the
culmination of a mental breakdown
that has been noticed by Dr. Miller's
friends for some timo. Until recently
his mental derangement has usually
taken the form of despondency, and he
has frequently complained that since
his misfortunes he has not had a friend
upon whom he can rely. His physician
believes that his ailments are directly
traceable to the misfortunes that have
befallen him recently the loss of a
magnificent residence and many val
uable relics and curiosities at Seymour
park, and the, death of his wife and
the dwindling away of his means.
Owing to the unfortunate man's ad
vanced age seventy-three years it is
feared that his mind is permanently

Attorney General Smyth Declares It Is In

Attorney General Smyth is now after

that the Argo company sold out to the

matter the State Journal says:
"This action of the attorney general
was not un looked for as the report was
published several weeks ago that he
would soon attack the octopus in its

attorney general in the name of the
state asks that the agreement by which
the Argo Manufacturing company sold
its property and rights to the United

that it be decreed that the United
Starch company is an unlawful trust
and that it be excluded from this state

Sores and Ulcers never become chronic
unless the blood is in poor condition is
sluggish, weak, and unable to throw off
the poisons that accumulate in it. The
system must be relieved of the unhealthy
matter through the sore, and great danger
to life would follow should it heal before
the blood has been made pure and healthy
and all impurities eliminated from the sys
tem. S.S.S. begins the cure by first cleans

When this has been accomplished the dis

ulcer heals. It is the tendency of these old
indolent seres to grow worse and worse,
and eventually to destroy the bones. Local
applications, while soothing and to some
extent alleviate pain, cannot reach the seat
of the trouble. S. S. S. does, and no matter
how apparently hopeless your condition,
even though your constitution has broken
down, it will bring relief when nothing
else can. It supplies the rich, pure blood
necessary to heal the sore and nourish
the debilitated, diseased body.
