VEST AFTER MORTON.
THE SECRETARY ROASTED TO
Hi eed Policy Denounced and Ridiculed
In Torn Teit Says the Devil Had a
Grudge Against the Democratic Party
and la a Spirit of Reveng Inflicted It
with Morton Irony, Sarcasm and Rid
icule. Sensational Words In the Senate.
Wabhihotox, Feb. 7. The most
caustic utterances beard in the senate
since Mr. Tillman's sensational speech
as that of Mr. Vest arraigning1 Sec
retary of Agriculture Morton yester
day. The general satire and ridicule
directed against the secretary, and the
allusions made to the president, made
the speech hardly less notable than
that which startled the senate. Mr.
Vefct referred derisirely to "the
colossal intellect dealing with cab
bages. At one point the senator said: "The
secretary of agriculture charges from
his office, reminding us of what Cicero
says f Cataline's flight from the sen
ate: Ab it excessit eTasit erupit.'
(Laughter). When the secretary of
agriculture uears of a silver lunatic he
is like the w arhorse in Job, his neck is
ciothed with thunder. You might go
further and iay, 'He saith among the
prophets, ha. ha; and he smelleth the
battle afar off, the thunder of the
captains and the shouting.'"
Mr. Vest severely criticised the
practice of furnishing costly flowers
from Government greenhouses for the
receptions at the Executive mansion,
and added: "Sir. I would rather give
twice the amount of this appropriation
to enable some poor man in a distant
county of the West who is fighting the
hard battle of life; 1 would rather give
him something that would make his
cheerless home comfortable and bring
light to his fireside. I would rather
put one flower in the sick room of a
noble working girl or matron than to
have it said that I had voted a hun
dred and odd thousand dollars for the
flowers and exotics to go to the re
ceptions an 1 banquets of the officials
of this Government, where the chan
delier flashes its light across the red
wine and the air is fragrant with per
fume like the spicy breeze of Araby
Mr. Vest referred to the "bugle
blasts" from the Secretary of Agricul
ture as to the congressional extrava
gance in distributing seeds.
The Democratic party has been
zuo&t unfort unate," said the Senator,
with einpha-is. "not only as to its in
ternal discords, but also in the
fact that the devil has owed us a
grudge and has paid it in a secretary
The Secretary had,1 continued Mr.
Vet, "put the "Democratic party in
antagonism to the great agricultural
interests of the party, althongh that
party had always stood as the close
friends of agriculture.
-The gigantic intellect of this sec
retary of agriculture has daily gone
outside of his legitimate duties and
why did it not discover some of the
really flagrant abuses?"
"This secretary," proceeded the Sen
ator, "has assumed to run the entire
government. He has been practically
the secretary of the treasury, flooding
this country with reports and pamph
lets denouncing the silver lunatics and
upholding the single gold standard."
Mr. Vest said the Senator from
South Carolina, (Tillman) had been
called a communist because he had
sounded a warning in the Senate. He
compared this with a New York pub
lication threatening revolution unless
Senators and Representatives yielded
to the gold standard.
"The trouble is," said Mr. Vest,
"that the secretary of agriculture is a
monomaniac on the gold standard.
He sees oniy gold, gold, red gold, and
he thinks any man who does not see
as be sees is a lunatic"
Mr. Vet. closed shortly after 2
o'clock with a remarkably sarcastic
and bitter peroration. He referred to
the useless seeds, which it was assert
ed the secretary had properly refused
to bay. "Hut," added the Senator,
' there was one seed not mentioned.
"It was," he proceeded, smiling
maliciously, '"the atirefur fenicuim
canes mortonae. or, in plainer words,
Morton's golden dogweed. This would
flourish while the secretary, swinging
hi golden censor at the executive
mansion, shouted his holy, holy, art
thou, oh Grover. King of Kings and
Lord of Lords."
Mr. Teller, Republican, CoL, took
occasion during the debate to refer to
the success of the bond issue. Large
a- the offerings were, they would have
been larger if the secretary of the
treasury had received bids at a fixed
price lor the bonds. Clumsy and
awkward as this bond submission had
been, lacking the essential features of
a popular loan, yet it completely
answered those who had talked of the
necessity of looking to foreign syndi
cates to sustain our credit.
The debate on distributing che ap
propriation bills ran through the en
Tire afternoon and was not concluded
when, at 4:.V) o'clock, the senate went
into executive session, and at I:50 ad
Stuart on the Fight Situation.
El. 'aso, Tex., Feb. 7. "No power
-.. stop these fights," said Dan A.
Stuart when informed of the passage
of an anti-prize fighting bill by the
House of Representatives. "Thev are
coming off just as they were adver
tised. You can say for me that so
sure as the principals are alive and in
condition to get into the ring on the
date set for the contests, so sure will
they fight, aud fight to a finish. If
anyone sees fit to doubt this. I will
lay four to one for any part of ?."0,000."
Massachusetts Indorse Morton's Action.
Wahhixstos, Feb. 7. Secretary
Morton has received the following let
ter: "Boston, January 15, 18C To
the Honorable Secretary of Agricul
ture, Washington, D. C: At the an
nual meeting of the Bay State Agri
cultural society held this date, the
following was unanimously adopted:
"Resolved, That the Bay State Agri
cultural society heartily approves of
the action of Secretary Morton in
stopping seed distribution, and hereby
condemns the old system of seed dis
tribution to members of Congress as
n extravagant, unnecessary and
wasteful use of the public monty."
NOT IN THIS COUNTRY
Catron's Prize Fight BUI Ituithed Through
the Senate and Keady for the President.
Washington, Feb. 7. The Catron
bill to prohibit prize fighting in Fed
eral territory, passed by the House
yesterday on the urgent request of
Delegate Catron of New Mexico, was
sent to the Senate to-day. It was
passed without division. To-morrow
it will be sent to the . President and it
is deemed certain that it will be signed
promptly, thus making it a law and
operative immediately.- With this law
on the statue books the whole govern
ment authority, judicial and if neces
sary military, will be invoked to see
that the prize fight is stopped.
The full text of the anti-prize fight
bill is as follows: "That any persons
who in any of the territories or the
District of Columbia, shall voluntarily
engage in a pugilistic encounter be
tween man and man, or a fight be
tween a man and a bull, or any other
animal, for money or for things of
value, or for any championship, or
upon the result of which any money
or anything of value is bet or wagered,
or to see which any admission fee is
charged, either directly or indirectly,
shall be deemed guilty of a felonv
and upon conviction shall be punished
by imprisonment in the penitentiary
for not less than one year nor more
than five years.
"By the term 'pugilistic encounter,'
as used in this bill, is meant any vol
untary fight by blows by means of
fists or otherwise, whether with or
without gloves, but when two or more
men for money or for a prize of any
character, or for any other thing of
value, or for any championship, or
upon the result of which any money
or any thing ot value is bet or wag
ered, or to see which any admission
fee is charged, either directly or indi
rectly I COULD USE S25.678.860
Secretary Umont Says That Sum Would
Provide Needed Coast Defenses.
Washington, Feb- 7. Secretary of
War Lamont has sent to the Senate a
statement of the amount of money
which could be used advantageously
in coast defenses. He says 825,678,300
could be used by the department prior
to July 1, 1S97, of which amount 81,
722,000 should be made during the
present fiscal year. He recommends
that S15,90.00O be designated for forti
fications, 81,000,000 for sites, $2,000,000
for submarine defenses and 80,316, sr0
for guns, mortars, projectiles, etc.
The special advantages of the in
creased appropriations as enumerated
by the secretary are: The utilization
of the army gun factory to its full
capacity, the more rapid armament of
our fortifications, the addition of
twelve mortars and carriages to those
already estimated for, the purchase of
an additional 500 deck piercing shells
and the supply of heavy material for
THE BOND ISSUE.
Morgan's Syndicate Will Get
Portion of the New Loan.
Washington, Feb. 7. The work of
scheduling and classifying the bids
opened yesterday was resumed to-day
and until the task is completed no in
formation of an exact and definite
character can be obtained as to the
amounts bid for at each of the several
rates, or as to how low a rate will be
accepted. The bid of J. P. Morgan
and his associates undoubtedly will be
accepted for a large amount, variously
estimated at from 845,000,000 to 855,
000,000. In any event all legitimate
bids at a rate above that submitted by
Mr. Morgan (110.6677) will be accepted
and all below that rate will be reiected.

Populist Senators Decide to Oppose lie
commitment of the Tariff Measure.
Washington, Feb. 7. Mr. Quay to

request it went over until Monday.
The Populist Senators have decided
in caucus to vote solidly against re
committing the silver substitute for
the tariff bill to the committee on
finance. If the Democrats stand to
gether against the Quay motion the
decision of the Populists will insure

effect abroad would be very marked in
The Secretary said it would be three
or four days before the bids could be
verified, scheduled and classified and
antil that time he could give no defin
ite information as to how low bids
would be accepted. He believed, how
ever, from hearing the names and
amounts read, that it would be neces
sary to accept some bids at a rate
slightly lower than ill, but how much
or in what amount he could not now
As the last bids were being read, the
Secretary was shown a telegram just
then received by one of the New York
bankers present, saying that the new

thought would have a very beneficial
effect upon the financial and commer

CURE FOR consumption.
Dr. Edson of New York, Makes an Im
New York. Feb. 8. Dr. Cyrus
Edson, who was at one time commis
sioner of health of the city and county
of New York, and who has been for
years one of the well-known contribu
tors to the leading magazines, pub
lishes an article in the Medical Record
under the following title: "A Ra
tional Treatment for Phthisis Pulmo
nalis. Together With Some Notes on a
New Remedial Solution." Under this
headline comes the description of a
discovery made by Dr. Edson, which,
it is said, may solve the hitherto un
solved problem of the cure of tubercu
losis. After a long and tedious experiment
he produced a fluid which he calls
aseptolin. It is perfectly colorless,
looks like crystal, and smells strongly
of carbolic acid. It contains 2.75 per
cent of carbolic acid, and to every
ounce of it there is added one-hundredth
of a grain of a new salt dis
covered by Dr. Edson during his work,
a salt called pilocarpin-phenly-hydroxide.
The aseptolin is injected under
the skin, and thus directly into the
blood. The dose is 100 minims, or
drops, injected with a hypodermatic
syringe once in twenty-four hours.
Tuberculosis consumption is a
germ disease, being caused by what
are called the tubercle bacilli. Dr.
Edson discovered aseptolin in Septem
ber, 1895. To date 217 persons having
consumption have been treated with
it. Of these, four showed no improve
ment, aud of the four one died. The
rest, 213, showed improvement. Of
these, 23 have been discharged cured;
67 will, in the opinion of the physi
cians having the cases, be discharged
cured, making 90 in all. In 91 cases
the patients have been under treat
ment for too short a time to enable tne
attending phj'sicians to say saything
except the patients are better. In 32
cases the improvement was only tem
porary, but this lecord means about 40
per cent of cures, and these cases have
been those of patients with the disease
in all stages.
About fifty physicians in the coun
try have procured aseptolin from Dr.
Edson's laboratory, and are using it in
their practice. It has cured every
case of malaria and la grippe in which
it has been tried, seventy-seven in all
of malaria and fifty one of la grippe.
After all, it is merely what Dr. Edson
calls it: "A Rational Treatment." It
is killing germs inside the body, just,
as they had been killed outside ever
since the first colony was cultivated,
and it is using for the purpose the
agent natnre herself creates of se
cretes to do this work. Upon author
ity of Professor Henry A. Mott, asepto
lin is composed of:. Water, 97.2411 per
cent; phenol, 2.7401 per cent; pilocar-pin-phenly-hydroxide,
0.0188 per cent.

STANLEY WITH AMERICA.
The Explorer Says BritUh Public Opinio
Is Coming Hound to Arbitration.
New York, Feb. 6. Henry M. Stan
ley, the African explorer, now a mem
ber of the British Parliament, has
written a letter to Major J. B. Pond
of this city, on the Venezuelan ques
tion. In the letter Mr. Stanley says:
I am entirely on the side of America,
but I must admit that I am not sur
prised that the English papers backed
up Salisbury. Taught by the virulent
remarks of your journals, I had of
course devoted much time to un
derstand it, whereas English ed
itors were exceedingly ill informed.
Then there are two or three inju
dicious remarks in Olney's dispatch
which puts British backs up, but after
reflecting it is wonderful how many
have come round to my opinion that
whatever the transgressions of Olney,
there is a great deal of justice in the
American demand. I feel quite sure
now that it will not be long before
the opinion becomes general that we
were in the wrong in refusing arbitra
tion, while the more I think of Olney
dispatch the more impressed I am that
Olney could scarcely have written
otherwise than he did."
A CHARITY WRANGLE
The House Strikes Out Appropriations
for Catholic Institutions.
Washington, Feb. C The House
was the scene of another wrangle yes
terday over appropriations for char
itable institutions of the District of
Columbia while the District bill was

things the A. P. A. came in for a
strong denunciation- General Hen
derson of Iowa made a fiery speech,
attacking amendments offered by Mr!
Hainer of Nebraska, taking appropri
ations away from the sectarian insti
tutions of the District and giving
them to the Public Charity Board for
distribution. Democrats and Repub
licans chimed in on both sides aoad
considerable feeling was aroused.
The appropriation for six religious
charitable institutions, one Episcopal
and five Catholics, for the care of or
phans and helpless aged, weie stricken
out, but the amendments to strike out
the appropriations for other private
institutions, including the Young Wo
men's Christian Home, the Hope and
Help Mission, etc., were defeated.

Morris Prcslaner of No. 1 Pitt Street.
New York, who is a real estate agent
and collector of rents, caught a severe
cold early last Fpring, which settled
upon his kidneys. Soon he bepan to
suffer severe pain In his backbone, sides
and chest. His symptoms grew rapidly
more alarming, until at last he was as
helpless as a child, and could scarcely
move as he lay on his bed.

Mr. Preslaner told a reporter the story
of his dreadful Illness and wonderful
recovery. The reporter met him as he
was returning from a long walk. and.
saving that he had heard of hts won
derful cure, asked him to tell the story.
His words were as follows: "To begin
with, I was taken sick Just a year and a
month ago, having taken a severe cold
which settled on my kidneys. At first
I thought the pain that I hadufTered
would soon pass away, but, instead of
doing this, it grew more intense every
day, so that In a week I could waHc only
with considerable difficulty.
"I called In a doctor, who said I had
locomotor ataxia and began treating
me for that dis?ase. He did me no good,
and all summer long I could scarcely
attend to my business at all. .Then I
called another doctor and took his medi
cine for several weeks, but experienced
no relief. Dr. Truman Nichols, of No.
2S7 East Broadway.whom I at last called
in. helped me more than any of the
other doctors, but along, towards fall I
grew worse despite his treatment.
"Early In November the little
strength I had in my legs left me and
I was unable to stand. The pain in my
back and sides became almost unbear
able, and my limbs grew cold. An
electric battery I bought failed to help
me, and for weeks I felt myself gradu
ally growing weaker until aIlhope left.
"Some time before this I had read of
a wonderful curer a man had received
from Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale
People, but was so prejudiced against
what I thought was a patent medicine
of the Ufual worthless character that
I could not make up my mind to try
them. As my pains increased and death
seemed coming near, I thought of what I
had read and of the symptoms of the
man who had been cured. They were
precisely the same as mine, and at
laet, with my wife's earnest entreaty, I
consented to try the Pink Pills.
"I am now convinced that these pills
saved my life. Gradually my strength
began to return, the desire to live grew
stronger within me. After having taken
three boxes I left my bed. Thi3 was
early in March. All pain had left me,
and that terrible dead feeling in my
legs had gone iway. I was still very
weak, but before I had taken the fourth
box I was able to get down stairs for a
short walk in the open air. Now I feel
as If I had been born again and am as
happy as a child."
