By the terms of the act of March 2,
1896, the title of the railroad to these
lands is confirmed and the title of all
bona tide purchasers to the railroad
lands is also confirmed. The question
of the good faith of the purchasers
under the act named can be determined
without suit by the interiordepartment
and no suit is needed for such determin
ation. That the necessity, in the it
terest of economy and equitable treat
ment, is that the suit which is now
pending in the United States court for
Nebraska should be dismissed was
urged upon the officials. They , quite
agreed as to the correctness of the
views expressed and after giving a few
days consideration to the subject will
probably order a dismissal of the suit.

date was decided upon at a meeting
held in Assistant Adjutant General

Complaint From a state Contractor.
Lincoln dispatch: Complaint was
made at the state house today by the
manager of the Lincoln Cooperage
company, one of the concerns which is j
employing the convict labor at the pen
itentiary, that owing to the giving out
of on"e of the boilers there was not suf
ficient power being furnished, and the
shops would be of necessity shutdown.
Agent Whitehead, who went to his
home in Custer county several days ago
to complete arrangements for moving
his family down to Lincoln, has been
detained by sickness, and has not yet
returned. The board will probably
wait until he can make a report as to
what the condition of the boiler is be
fore taking any steps.

THEY WANT RECIPROCITY.
MANUFACTURING INTERESTS FA
TOR THE BLAINE SYSTEM.
MANY REPLIES RECEIVED.
Strong Preponderance for the Re
newal of the Reciprocity Agreements
a Tbey Kxl&iovl Under the Mc
Kinley Law Commercial
Organizations Also Fa
Washington, March 23. Response
is now being made by the commercial
and manufacturing interests of the
country to the circular letters ad
dressed to them by the ways and
means subcommittee" on reciprocity
and commercial treaties, inviting
expressions of opinion as to the advisa
bility of endeavoring to renew the
reciprocity agreements with foreign
countries made under the terms of the
McKinley tariff act. The replies so
far received number seventy-nine,
including large manufacturing con
cerns east of the Mississippi river and
those heavily interested in the export
There is a strong- preponderance of
desire for. the renewal of the recip
rocity agreements and in many cases
the writers cite figures to show the
great diminution in their export
trade since the repeal of the provision
of the law under which these agree
ments existed. In few cases is there
any attempt made to conceal the self-
interest of the writers in the matter.
For instance among the few concerns
which oppose reciprocity, is a grain
commission house which' feels that it
will be thus placed in competition
with the great South American
grain producing countries. Another
concern favoring reciprocity, in an
swer to the direct question writes:
'Decidedly yes. We are more and
more convinced that what we want is
not free trade but fair trade, and the
writer makes this admission after hav
ing been for fifteen years a free
trader." Politics crops out in many
of the answers and not a few of the
writers do not hesitate to express
their preference in the matter of the
choice of the next President.
Three great commercial organiza
tions are on the committee's list of
correspondents and all of them arc re
corded as most emphatically favoring
reciprocity. They are the Millers
National association of Milwaukee, C.
A. Pillsbury, president; the Cincin
nati chamber of commerce and Mer
chants' exchange and the Cleveland
chamber of commerce.
Of the seventy-nine replies, sixtv-
are strongly m advocacy of a
renewal of the reciprocity agreements
RS tne were under the McKinley act;
tne committee ana merely take ad-
vantage of the opportunity to venti-
'ate some private grievances.

BAYARD UNDER FIRE.
Resolutions iu the House that Ceniore
Washington, .March 1G. The Am
bassador Bayard censure resolutions
were called up in the House this after
noon by Mr. llitt of Illinois, who
made a strong speech in support of
them, and was followed by Mr. M
Creary of Kentucky, who opened for
the opposition. The latter said that
such resolutions were unprecedented
and an invasion of the rights and
authority of the President. Mr. Bay
ard was not the first diplomatic officer
representing the United States who
had been assailed by his political
opponents while representing his
country in England and a vote
of censure now, prompted by preju
dice and partisanship, would not
hurt him. The purpose was too well
understood. It might prove a garland
of distinction andopenthe way to him
for higher oliices and greater honors.
The people of this country knew that
Thomas F. Bayard had proved him
self a patriot, a statesman and a faith
ful public servant.and the people were
behind him in his opposition to pro
tection and trusts in far greater num
bers than they were behind those who
sought to condemn and censure him.
To censure Mr. Bayard at this time
would be to detract from the prestige
of this country with Great Britain
when he, as a diplomatic oflicer, rep
resented this country in negotiations
concerning important questions now
pending. Mr. McCreary concluded as
follows: "When a citizen of our free
country becomes an ambassador or a
minister, should he be required to sur
render or suppress his true senti
ments? Should he not have the right
to speak his sentiments politely and
respectfully, if they are in accord with
the policy of the government which
he represents? The people of the civ
ilized world are aware of the political
revolutions which occur in this repub
lic, and they are aware that we do not
have in this country a special diplo
matic corps in office for life, but that
our ambassadors and ministers are ap
pointed by the political party in pow
er. They are men who supported the
Presidents whose commissions they
bear, and thej- uphold the policies of
his administration. Their views on
these policies should give no offense
at home if they give none abroad. I
am sure the Republican majority of
this House will have more praise for
abstaining from the adoption of the
pending resolutions than they will
have if they adopt them."
Mr. McCreary was followed bv Mr.
Cousins of Iowa, who supported the

lack of it, but soundly condemn them all
without a trial. Such a course is manifestly
absurd and unjust, and I, for one, propose
to give my patient the best treatment
known to me, for the particular disease
with which they are suffering, no matter
what it is, where or how obtained. I was
first brought to prescribe Dr. Williams
Pink Pills about two years ago, after bar

his bed. After the usual treatment for
this disease he failed to improve, but oa
the contrary grew rapidly worse, the case
developing into Hemiphlegia. or partial
paralysis of the entire right side of the

were all given a trial, but nothing gar. any

About that time his wife noticed one of

your Pink Pills.

Having seen these results I eoneladed
that such a remedy is surely worth m trial
at the hands of any physician, and eonse
quently when a short time later I was
called upon to treat a lady suffering with
palpitation of the heart and great nervoss
prostration, after the usual remedies failed
to relieve, I ordered Dr. Williams Pink
Pills. The result was simply astonishing.
Her attacks became less frequent and also
less in severity, until by their use for a
period of only two months she wae the plo

overwork or nervous strain during a long

Pink Pills will do wonders in brightening
the countenance and in buoying the spirit.,
bringing roses to the pallid lips and renew
