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. Graud Army Keiiiiion l.'atr.

The date set will, it is thought, accommodate those who de sire to visit the state fair at Omaha and wish to make but one trip from their homes, as well as those who intend to go on the annual national encamp ment.

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.

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 vor Renewal. 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 trade. 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- eight 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 the Ambassador. 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 censure resolution; A luuu. in i iimuuer. St. Joseph, Mo., March 19. Sev eral days ago some one administered poison to the family of D. B. Taylor, who resides near Craig, north of this city. The poison was administered In coffee, and the father, D. 11.

Any That He Knows WW Cor. His Vt e- Think. Dr. Williams' FlnU Plus a Great Discovery He Cites Some Marvelous Cures. From the Examiner. Lsacsster, Pa. Akkox, Pa., April 24tV Dr. Williams' Mbdicikb Co.: Gentlemen-While it Is entirely con1 to the custom of the medical profession tc endorse or recommend any of the so-caJieei proprietary preparations, I shall, thelesa, give tou an account of eome or my wonderful experience, with your P'P' tion. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pal. People. The fact is well known that med ical practitioners do not as a rule, reeo niie, much less use. preparations or this kind, conEenuently the body of them hate no definite knowledge of their virtue or 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 ing seen some remarkable results from their use. Reuben Hoover, now of Read ing, Pa., was a prominent contractor . an builder. While superintending the work Of erecting a large building during cold weather, he contracted what was thought to be sciatica. He first noticed it on. morning in not being able to arise from 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 body. Electricity, tonics and massage, etc. , were all given a trial, but nothing gar. any benefit, and the paralysis continued. I despair he was compelled to hear his phy sician announce that his case was hopeless. About that time his wife noticed one of your advertisements and concluded to try your Pink Pills. He bad given up hope aud it required a great deal of begging on the part of bis wife to persuade him to take them regu larly. He, however, did as she desired, aad if appearances Indicate health in this man, one would think he was better than befor. his paralysis. 'VYhv,' says he, 'I began to improve la two days, and in four or five weeks I wae' entirely well and at work.' 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 ture of health, rosy-cheeked and bright eyed, as well as ever, and she has continued so until today, more than one year sine, she took any medicine. I have found these pills a specific for chorea, or as more com monly known, Bt. Vitus' dance, as benefi cial results have in all cases marked their use. As a spring tonic any oiie who, from overwork or nervous strain during a long winter has become pale and languid, the Pink Pills will do wonders in brightening the countenance and in buoying the spirit., bringing roses to the pallid lips and renew lug the fountain of youth. Yours Respectfully, J. L. Albright, M. D. UNCLE SAM'S TREASURY. The total ordinary expenditures of the government in 1893 were $356,195, 29S. In the year 1904, only eight years from now, $100,000,000 in bonds must be redeemed. In 1890 the receipts from imports amounted to 177,000,000 more than last year. The tax on imports into the United States amounts to $2 for each inhabi tant. Thirty-seven cents per capita in 189 i was sufficient to pay the interest on th nation's borowings. France, Russia, Great Britain. Austria-Hungary, Italy, Spain and Prussia are the only nations deeper in debt than is the United States. In 1867 3 cents per capita of silver and C6 cents per capita of gold wa coined. In 1894 13 cents per capita of silver and $1.17 of gold was minted. The Indebtedness of the United States, less cash on hand on November 1, lSn. was $812,137,610.87. Without deductions and including certificates and Treasury notes it was $1,717,481,779. In France 1,550 miles of light rail ways have been already built, though many of the lines last year were worked at a loss.
