Washixotox, Oct. 10. Not one of
tho contests filed against the members
of the new house of representatives is
complete. In most, the, testimony
furnished on behalf of both the con
testant and contested has been de
posited with the clerk, but in none
have tho contestants filed their testi
mony in rebuttal.
In the I'elkuap Mcdarin ease from
tho Third Illinois district .Mr. McOana
has not yet furnished Ids testimony,
xvhicli, according to law, ho should
have done within forty days after t hut
of the contestant, Although this in
tho law, tho house is not always
g-uided by the statutes if satisfactory
explanations for tho delay are fur
nished. In .the l'.eattie-l'rieo case
from the Third Louisiana, for instance,
Mr. Price's testimony was delayed by
miiallpox, which was epidemic in cer
tain parts of his district.
Although no otlicial information has
been received to that yli'cct, it is un
derstood at the clerls's ollico hero that
it. A. thcNcborougli, who tiled notice,
of contest against Ocorgo It. McClel
Jan of the Twelfth New York, has
abandoned his contest. In the other
New York cases (Mitchell against
Wnlsh in the KighLh and f'ampbell
n gainst Miner in the Ninth) the con
tcstees have not filed their testimony
owing to sonic ioeol hitch, and Milch
ell, it is understood, charges Walsh
with attempting to delay the case.
All of the contestants of the thirty
cases are Republican, save (ioodrieh,
who is contesting' Cobb's teat in tint
Fifth Alabama, und Campbell, who i t
Contesting Miner's fi.ci. tlootlrieh is
ii i'opulisl, who had the Kcpnlican in
dorsement, and Campbell ran its an in
dependent Democratic candidate.
(icncral opinion is that the cases of
the contestants seated by the next
house will have to be very meritorious
ns the llcjmblicii ti majority is over
whelming and there is no political
emergency which "would tend to make
the members look on contests with
anything but an impartial eye to their

Nkw Yohi;, Oet. 10. Warden Sage of
the state prison at Siug Sincf has se
cured evicleuccalmost conclusive that
Dr. Henry V. C. Meyer has been plan
ning another murder since lit was
hent to prison for life for poisoning
J.udwig I'.raiidt. The crime that he is
believed to have plotted is similar to
the killing of liraudt, and for a sim
ilar purpose that of receiving life in
surance money. This money, if th.is
gained, was to be used to effect his re
lease from prison.
Tho evidence consists chielly of
letters and memoranda found in
Meyer's eclL These have been placed
in Ihe hands of Superintendent of
l'risons (icncral Lal hrop.
It seems almost certain that Meyer,
since his incarceration, ha been able
to send letters secretly to his wife,
and other persons, outside the prison.
Jn these he in, alleged to have given
his accomplices directions how to get
the desired policy of insurance on the
proposed victim's life and carry out
There were several masons and
other mechanics employed inside the
prison walls during the summer, and
it is suspected that some one of these
offered to the prisoner means of com

Some time ago Dr. Meyer handed
a letter to tho prison chaplain to be
mailed. It was written m Herman
and addressed to Mrs. Meyer. In it he
said that on a -certain day hc would

he would pdre the "prescription ' to lie

CirtcAco, Oct. lo. At the nuarterly
mcctingaud dinner of the I'nion league
club last night, under the formally
announced subject: ' Phalli the I'olicy
of tho United States lie to Extend Its
Dominion?'' the ruestion of Cuban an
nexation was discussed.
The selected speakers were A .el F.
hatch in the allirmative, Congressman
K. D. Cooke in the negative, Harry
Kubens in the allirmative, and ex-Congressman
William K. Mason in the
negative. The discussion took a wide
range, mid the desirability of absorb
ing Conada, Mexico nnd Hawaii was
discussed, but the matter dwelt on the
most earnestly was the annexation of
Cuba, which was interestingly and
Mr. Hatch was in favor of extension
in order that the market might be en
larged. If Hawaii wanted to raise the
Hag tho country ougiit to take advan
tage of it. The Nicaragua canal
should be aided, and the l.'nited States
should become the envy of the world.
Mr. Cooke, on the other hand, spoke
of the "fust for territorial gain," and
called it a colossal crime." Social, and
political reform, he thought, should
engage the attention of Americans,
lie took up Canada, Mexico, Hawaii
and Cuba, and to tho uestion, "Shall
they be annexed?" lie returned an em-,
phau'c "no." They should be aided in
maintaining independent republican
government, he said, but not annexed.
'i he meeting was largely . attended
by representative citizens.

This worn out matter goes to the kid

One of tho most wonderful facts of

them. We are sick oftencr than there
is any need for. It is simply because
we take no heed to our kidneys.
Sick kidneys show their effects in
many different diseases.
Rheumatism and Bright's disease
arc very common. Anaemia, Neural

the asparagus plant, which has a spe

gives them new life and strength. It
helps them to do their work as it ought
to be done. It cures their sickness. It
cleans and renews the filter.
When the kidneys are well you will
feel a great difference at once. Your
complexion will clear, and your whole

NUT BROWN AT FIRST.
But They So Change to a Jet IslacU
At fiirth a negro child is of a red
dish nut-brown color, which turns to
a slaty gray in the first week of
the child's oxistenco. The black color
is not fully developed for a period
varying from two to three years, ac
cording to tho nature of the locality
and tho inHuence of the climato. Dar
win says that the children of Austral
ians, immediately after birth, aro
yellowish brown, and becomo darker
at a later age. Those of the Guaranya
of Paraguay aro whitish yellow, tuS
they acquire In tho coursa of a few
weeks the yellowish-brown tint of their
parents. It is curious to notice thai,
tho eyes of a negro child aro blue aft
birth, his hair of a dark chestnut color,
being only curled at the ends.

cal health at this season, because a cold
or cough, an attack of pneumonia or ty
phoid fever may now make you an in
