"I was troubled with Kidney Dis
ease for several years and Dodds Kid
ney Pills cured me. I had used
many so-called remedies without any
benefit. Four months ago, I was flat
on my hack with this painful trouble
and must say thnt I almost gave up
hones of ever getting any better.
Through a friend's advice I purchased
six boxes of Dodd's Kidney Fills.
"At first I could see but little bene
fit, but after two weeks, I could see
an Improvement. I bad been getting
up several times at night and pains
In my hack were very severe. When
I had taken six boxes I felt better
than I had for years. Tho pain bad
all gone and I didn't havo to get tip'
during the night at all. I continued
tho treatment until I had used several
more boxes, nnd row I am glad tc
say that I am completely cured."

WAGES CF GOVERNMENT EM
Mere Proof cf the Iniquitous Working
cf the DHf-ley Lav Cc;t of Neces-r-arie
of Life Kept at the Highest
When the Repuljicjii leaders In
( ongress declared that wages were
never so good and certain for every
man that wants to w ork, thanks to .the
benign Influence of the Dingley law,
tho evidence shows they were bluffers
I of iho "stand pat " order. Tho last
employer In the United States to low
er waties in Uncle Sau and It may
be judged that times aro getting tight
and thai "the man Is set king the job"
when wages at the Charlestowu Navy
Yard, Boston, Massachusetts, were
cut 8 per cent, beginning January 2.
This information Is given 1;: the Bos
ton Transcript, Dec. ;tl, which says:
"Indignation runs high among tho
workmen employed at the Charles
town Navy Yard to-day. as it has been
niado public this noon that the men
employed at the workshops In the
yard will have their pay minced from
$2 to $1.84 per day. This includes- all
the lower grades or workmen. The
other employes, working for larger
pay, will also bo Included In this cul
This comes as a great blow to tho
several hundred men employed at
the yard, who r.re considered to bo
mure experiene"d ami of a better
grade of mechanics than are generally
fund in cities or other government
departments. This announcement was
mado by circulars posted In tho differ
ent shops, nnd is thn outcome of the
report of the Board of Wages, which
includes the various head:! of depart
ments In the yard, nnd which decides
as to the grade of the wages paid
every six months. The cut takes ef
feet n the first day of the year."
The Board of Wages decides the
per diem that shall he paid, by the
.?oing rate for the same class of work
in other establishment:!, and only
reduced wages when they havo clear
evidence (hat for some time a similar
reduction lias been universally adopt
ed. The statement by the Republican
leaders that, "wages were never so
good," Is either, therefore, on effort to
deceive the people as to tho true
:;tate of affairs or shows dense Ignor
ance of economic conditions. If tho
Board of Wages could be given the
Job of also deciding what would he
a fair price for Hie trusts and com
bines to charge fur the nocuvsarlc3 of
life, there niiht be n reasonable hope
of the cost cf living being mado to
agree v.hh wa".; pui-i, 1'l'ori'tn?tely
,they have ro such po.v.r. and tho
iDingley law relciulosHiy gives most
l..f tho tnisis Mich enormous protec
tion that it arroui'ti to a monopoly in
much that i.) consumed iit'.i! prevents
competition from reducing tho price
of nearly everything else.
If the tariff was reduced to a rev
enue hfisU, so that It would produce
enough money to run the government,
with the postoilico nnd other grafting
eliminated, a-id with trust produc
tions that ere sold cheaper abroad
I ban here, on tho free list, tho cost
of living nnd labor would soon find n
.reasonable level. The old excuse for
protection, that it would foster and
bund up infnn: industries, cannot now
be claimed as necessary for the gigan
tic trusts, for some of the largest of
the combines me making profit so
great (hat they pay large dividends
on watered stocks, ten times grea'er
than their plants could be reproduced
for. The consumers of the united
Slates are therefore taxed not only
to support the government but also
the lunch greater iax Iniisised by tho
trusts, and that is what the Republi
can leaders call the ner.ign influence
of the Dingley law.
WAGE REDUCTIONS UNIVERSAL.
Yet the Republicans Say "Let Well
There are two reasona given for the
protective tariff by the Republicans,
one that it protects the manufacturers
from foreign competition and tho
other that it raises the price for labor.
As about all the manufacturers hnve
been organized Into trusts or com
bines nnd every Industry has long ago
thrown off Its swaddling clothes and
none of them can any longer ho called
infant industries, the first reason for
a protective tariff falls to the ground.
Tho rnpld decrease In wages now go
ing on, the numerous strikes nnd tho
continued high cost of living would
seem to demolish the other reason.
Bat tho protectionists aro still saying
"let well enough alone'." although
their voices are much less strident
than when Hanna Issued Instructions
to "stand pnt." There has been no
lowering of the tariff tax, the Dingley
bill Is still supposed to "adequately
secure American Industrial products
'against the competition of foreign
labor." but the old machine shows
signs of wear and rasps nnd groans
when the labor cogs need oiling.
Where proteitlon Is highest there
nee ins to be the most friction, ns In
the Iron nnd sue! industries.
The latent to chow signs of demor
alization Is the lumber and logging
husiness. In which wages have declin

"During the past few weeks there

labor situation In loRgiiig circles In

that lumbering concerns could only

Some :iilo ers are said lo be

The wood and lumber schedule of
the Dingley bill Is still protecting the
lumber trusts and combines, and al
lowing them to continue the cxorhl
tapt profit. 4 on lumber and thltiKles,
but the nun In the woods and who
run the saw mills are rot partal Ins

Will our Republican friends pleaso

G'oomy Outlook for Actors.
It would be hard to find n better
barometer of prosperity und ader
slty. at least with the city population,
than is afforded by the- theaters. When
the middle ruid rich classes are feel
ing prosperous they patronize Hut
theaters; when they are feeling the
pinch of hard times they spend com
paratively little for amusements. Tho
Washiimton Post of Jan. 2 says:
"Reports from New York containing
a reiiew of the season's operations in
the tlieaciei.l ::,! amusement world
show tb.;t ti.;ire than 200 companies
have been disbanded or reorganized
nince the opening of the theatrical
season l.;st fall, und that fully 3,oml
actor.;, good, bad, and Indifferent, are
now In New York, or trying to get
there, seeking engagements for the
rest of the season. The entire testi
mony is that the season which opened
last August lias been the most disas
trous since tho season following the
panic of l!b)3.
"The most discouraging reports
have come In from tho Middle West,
the South, and now it Is nnnounced
that the Pacific coast circuit, usually
so profitable at this season of the
year, is withholding Its patronage
from nil but a very few companies.
Backers and managers have with
drawn their companies until New
York now has nearly as many actors
out of employment as are usually
found there during the summer before
the season opens."

The Rockefeller Influence in the
United States Ucnate.
Senator Aldrlch of Rhode Island
seems to be the whole Republican
party in the United States Senate and
the greater majority of the party bow
down and submit to his dictation. It
would be difficult lo believe this If the
following verbatim report of tho evi
dence that confirms it had not ap
peared In the Congressional Record:
Senator Lodge I desire. Mr. Presi
dent, to bring ui) a liltle matter
Senator Bncoi-. But, Mr. President,
as I understand it, there Is an agree
ment in the Sennto by which no mat
ters shall be considered until Dec. 16,
except the Cuban reciprocity bill and
Senator Lodge I nm surprised, Mr.
President at such a statement. I
know of no such agreement.
Senator Hale Nor I.
Senator Cullom Nor I.
Senator Allison Nor I.
Senator Gorman Why, Mr. Presi
dent, I desire to express my surprise
low. The Senate has mndo such an
lgreenient and the Renators on this
-Ide of tho chamber perfectly under
stand it nnd aro w illing to abide by It.
By this lime a dozen or more lead
ers were on their feet on tho Repub
lican side. Senator Teller, who rose
on tho Democratic sido Just as Mr.
Gorman finished, was recognized by
Senntor Teller For the Informa
tion ef the Senate I desire to say that
such an agreement was made by the
senior senntor from Rhode Island Mr.
Whereupon Senators lodge, Hale,
Culloin, Allison and seven others
quietly and submissively snt down.
Only Mr. Klkl-is of West V rglnla re
The President Pro Teni The sena
tor from Wert Virginia.
Senator Klklnr Of course, such an
agreement must bo kept, but it seems
to me that the senator on this side
of the chamber who makes It shuuld
be present to Fee thnt it Is kept.
As Hcra'or Aldrieb Is connected by
marriage ;ih tho great trust mag
nate. Hoi ki felb r, and Is reputed to
aid bltn in obtaining the legislation ho
desires, it is apparent that the Re
publican majority of the senate Is tied
hand nnl foot to nt least, sonio of
ihe prem trust.i. The other Republi
can leaders in tl.e Senate evidently
nre quite willing to carry out any
scheme of ) ,Matlon that Senator
Aldrlch thinks Pt to dictate, without
lilt dolsv'n;: to even Inform them how
ho 1ms arrancel nutters.
Senntor Aldrlch being utterly oppos
ed to any legislation that will. In tho
least way. hurt the trusts, or help
the people. It Is Impossible to expect
any relief from trust exactions, unle-.
public opinion can bo brought to bear
on enough other Republican senntors
who are not so steeped in trust wel
fare. Few Books In Russia.

Ancient Celtic Vessels Unearthed.
In the course of some digging oper
ations in a garden at Haslemcre, Po
land, a sardener unearthed a number
of ancient vessels or peculiar shape,
together with a quantity of oilciuod
human bones, at a depth of about, two
feet below the surface. The British
museum authorities, who have exam
ined the dlscoverey, pronounce the
vessels to belong to tho late Celtic
age, about B. ('. 130. Only three or
four vessels were found in a perfect
condition. He computed that twenty
two urns and r"its were originally In
terred nt the spot.

Some time ago J. ,T. Smith shot und
killed his father-in-law, O. Blovens, In
Wayne county, Ky., just over the Ten
nessee line. Bleveus was in thnt state
nnd Smith in Kentucky when the shot
was ilred. This Is probably tho flrnt
case on record where a man standing
In one state killed a man In another,
and just what procedure will be taken
N not known, as Smith, who is in this
state, has killed no ono In this state,
hecauso Blovens was In Tennessee
when killed, and no reoulstion. it
seems, can be Issued from Tennessee,
because Smith is not a fuiritlve from
Justice from that state, never having
been there. - The case will bo watched
