Something About the New Discovery
for Curing Dyspepsia.
From Mich. Christian Advocate.
The Rev. F. I. Bell, a highly esteemed
minister residing in Weedsport, Cayuga
Co., N. Y., in a recent letter writes as ol-
lovrs; "There lias never ueen anyimng
that I have taken that has relieved the
Dyspepsia from which I have suffered for
ten years except the new renieay caneu
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets. " binee
taking them I have had no distress at all
after eating and again after long years
can sleep well. Kev. F. I. Bell, Weeds
port, N. Y., formerly Idalia, Colo."
Stuart s Dyspepsia rauieis is areum-
abe remedy, not only because it is a cer
tain cure for all forma of indigestion, but
becauete it seems to act as thoroughly in
old chronic cases of Dyspepsia as well as
in mild attacks of indigestion or Inlious-
ness. A person nas ayspepsiu. unpij
because the stomach is overworked, nil
it wants is a harmless vegetable remedy
to digest the food and thus give it the
much needed rest..
This is the swret of the success of this
peculiar remedy. Now matter how weak
or how inuc;h disordered the digestion
may be, Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets will
digest the food whether the stomach
works or not. New life and energy is
given not only to me sionmcn out iu
every organ and nerve in the body. A
trial of this splendid medicine win con
vince the most skeptical that Dyspepsia
and all stomach troubles can be cvred.
The tablets are prepared by the Stuart
Chemical Co., of Marshall, Mich., but so
popular has the remedy become that
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tublets can now be
obtained at any drug store at 50 cents

THE LAST LEGISLATIVE JOINT SES
SION WITHOUT RESULT.
CAPITOL UNDER GUARD.
Democrat Denounce Governor Bradley
In Unmeasured Terms-Colonels Chlnn
and Oalther ('huh Friends Step
In Before Wood Is Shed
Everything Is Quiet In
Frankfort, Ky., March 18. The
last joint session of the legislature
assembled to-day as peaceably as of
old. A better feeling prevailed In the
iiouso ano r. number ' oi women were
allowed for the first time since last
Friday to enter the galleries. The
doors were thrown wide open as on
yesterday, and the same sight of blue
coats was witnessed in the corridors.
When the clerks called the roll of both
houses the Democrats refused to an
swer and the roll stood 00 present.
The ballot was then ordered for the
last vote in the race for United States
senator. Neither Democrats nor Re
publicans voted. On motion of C. Z.
Brown the joint assembly dissolved,
never to meet again. Then the long
meter doxology was sung and the
gavel fell for the last time in the Ken
tucky general assembly at 12:17, with
out electing a successor to Senator
As soon as the joint assembly had
dissolved, many of Senator Black
burn s friends made a rush for the
senate cloak rooms and began shaking
the hand of the champion of free sil
ver. Indications are that the legislature
will not adjourn until a late hour to
night. Representative E. T. Burnham
said after the joint session that if the
Democrats had not refused to vote to
day, both James and Walton, the two
expelled Republican senators, would
Colonel E. II. Gaither was walking
to the Capitol Hotel when he met
Jack Chinn. Gaither said: "How are
you, Jack?" and was passing on when
Chinn replied: "Damn you, don't you
speak to me,'' and at the same, time
made a movement for his hip pocket.
Before a weapon could be drawn,
General P. W. Hardin rushed in be
tween the two men and succeeded in
preventing a fight, not, however, be
fore Gaither had said to Chinn: "I
am ready for you at any time, sir. It
don't matter whether you speak to
me or not"
W. A. Dunlap, who was given Mr.
Kaufman's seat in the house by that
body, arrived from Lexington this
morning. When asked if he would
vote in the joint-assembly, he said:
I will not I am here on other bus
Dunlap was sent for by Colonel
Boyle, the Republican nominee for
United States Senator, but he refused
to yield to the Republican instruc
In the House Mr. Barnett offered a
resolution indorsing the action of the
governor in calling out the militia
and Mr. Howard of Butler, moved the
previous question. In a moment
almost every Democrat in the House
was on his feet demanding to be heard,
The speaker ruled that the previous
question had oeen ordered and no
speeches were in order. A t least half
a dozen Democrats were at it at the
same time in the greatest of confusion,
during which bayonet rule, carpet
baggers, soldiers, militia, anarchy,
cowardice and other such epithets
were thrown at the Republicans. The
resolution was adopted by a yea and
nay vote of 51 to i.
The usual ballot was taken for
United States Senator to-day, the last
day, but there was no election.
A meeting of Blackburn Democrats
is to be held to-night, at which ad
dresses are to be delivered by Senator
Blackburn, General Hardin, Ollie
James and others, in which they will
claim that the fact that no United
States Senator was elected at this
session is a great victory for Black
burn. The meeting, it is said, will be
an opening of the free silver campaign
The report of the Senate investiga
tion committee in charge of Senator
Goehl will not be ready until after
the joint session. It will be very
lengthy and will score the Governor
unmercifully. One story has it that
the committee will recommend that
he Senate fine the Governor $500, ,
together with imprisonment for six '
months. That this is 'contemplated is
shown by the remark of a member of
the committee: "The committee has
power to recommend such punishment
as you have suggested. The only
thing that will prevent such a report
being made is the fact that it is known
that a number of Democratic Senators
will not consent to vote for the reso
lution." ONE CHARGE NOT PROVED.
The Rev. Mr. Brown Acquitted of Im
morality With Mrs. Stockton.
San Francisco, March 18. The
council that is sitting in judgment on
the Rev. Mr. Brown has acquitted
him, after a long debate, of the charge
of immoral conduct with Mrsi M. A.
Stockton. They based their opinion
on the following facts: That Mrs.
Stockton was not a woman whose tes
timony could be taken for the truth;
that no evidence was introduced
strong enough, in a legal sense, to
convict the pastor; that he had shown
Mrs. Stockton great kindness in the
way that a Christian minister should,
and that she had taken advantage of
Powers Would Not Support Spain,
London, March 18. The Berlin cor
respondent of the Times says that the
Hamburger Correspondent, which is
often used as an official mouthpiece,
believes that the powers would refuse
to intervene in support of Spain in i
the Cuban affair against the United '
BOOTH WELCOMED HOME.
Salvation Army Demonstration If
Honor of 1U Head.
London, March 18. The Salvation
Army was in a state of considerable
excitement yesterday, the occasion
beiny a mass meeting at the Crystal
Palace to formally welcome back to
England npon his return from his
journey around the world "General"
William Booth, the commander-in-chief
of the army.
The meeting proved to be enor
mous in numbers and fervent in spir
it General Booth in his address to
the meeting, referred immediately to
the action of the Ballington Booths in
America, saying that he had returned
to meet one of the heaviest trials that
he had ever been called upon to face.
But even darkness had a silver lining.
The American army, he asserted,
stood, almost to a man, true to him.
and assurances of unceasing devotion
had been pouring in from every quar
ser of the globe. The result of the
trouble, he concluded, would be to
strengthen the bond of union between
the various sections. '
FORTY PERSONS KILLED
Explosion of Gunpowder on the
Steamship Matndl. ,
London, March 18. The British
steamer Matadi, which sailed from
Sierra Leone on February 5," was to
tally destroyed at Boina by an explo
sion of gunpowder, March 7.
The whole forepart of the Matadi
was blown into the air, and forty per
sons were killed, including a mission
ary named Hawk and his wife. Boma,
or Bomma, is on the Congo river, and
only about fifty miles from its mouth.
The victims of th accident were
asleep at the time of the disaster. The
officers of the steamer escaped.
Has No Slgiilfleance.
Boston, March 18. Rev. Francis El
Clark, president of the United socie
ties of Christian Endeavor, states
that his action in becoming an auxi
liary member of the Salvation army
has no significance other than it shows
his interest in the work and aims of
the organization. It is a step, he says,
he has long wanted to take, but cir
cumstances always interfered until
Madrid I'ubllo Impatient.
Madrid, March 18. The press and
public here express disappointment
and impatience at General Weyler's
failure to suppress the Cuban insur
gents, who are still scouring the pro
vinces of Havana, Pinar del Rio and
Matanzas, and burning plantations,
villages, etc, on as extensive a scale
as they were doing during General
Oral Argument Not Allowed.
Washington, March In.--The Su
preme court denied the motion of At
torney Scott of Kansas City, asking
that an oral argument be allowed in
the Kansas mortgage redemption case.
The disposition of the court appears
to be to carry out the original pro
gramme to have the case submitted by
briefs on or before April 13.

THAT GREAT WAVE.
Failures Continue to Increase re
gardless of the Bond Issues and
THE GOLD CURE VERY SLOW.
The I'ubllr Debt of Omaha and Lincoln.
During the so-called prosperous year
of 1802 there was 10,344 business fail
ures in this country. The old party gold
bug press printed columns uponcolumns
explaining why there bapened to be
such a large number of failures daring a
prosperous year. They said it was all
because the people were afraid, that the
democrats would come out victorious
and elect Cleveland president. At this
time the plutocratic gold bug press aro
shouting loud und long that the repub
licans will sweep the democrats from
power. It would bo supposed if the fear
of Cleveland's election in 1802 scared
tho people and caused a large number of
failures that a prospect of republican,
victory in November 1896 would cause
failure to decrease. The facts show that
the State Journal und the whole gang
of boodlmg gold bug napers in this
country are stufHng the people with lies.
This country has had a large crop of
nearly all kinds of produce during the
Inst year and should be prosperous. We
show below that all this talk ubout the
great wave of prosperity is a delusion
and a snare.
It. (J. Dunn & Co., in their , weekly re
view of trnde says:
Failures for the week have been 800 in
the United States, against 2(iG last year,
and sixty in Canada, ogaiust fifty-seven
This report shows an increase of 34
over the same week last year in this
country ami Uire lit i dtituiu. iuia!
failures including the IWO in this report
amount to 8,4S;i since January 1, 1S96.
A gain of 340 so far this year over the
same time last year. The number of
failures in Canada for this year is 647, a
gain of 122 as compared wi th the same
time Inst year. A careful analysis of the
above figures willjshow that the failures
for 1806 willexcecd 18,000 in the United
States. The gold bug press of the
country are telling the people that bus
iness will revive as soou as the election
is over. There can be no revival of bus
iness in a public way in the states west
of the Mississippi river before or after the
election, at least not for several years.
For illustration we take the city of Lin
coln or Omaha or any other western city. '
Lincolu covers a piece of ground about
four miles north and south by about
three miles east and west. This piece of
ground has been plastered with a public
debt of more than f 2,01)0.000 during
the last twenty years of republican rule.
This includes the school district debt
both bonded and floating, the city bond
ed and floating, the district paving
bonds and that portion of the county
debt that this city will have to pay,
This debt carries with it an interest
charge of more than $120,000 a year.
That goes east of the Mississippi river.
We challenge the boodling State Jour
nal or any of its backers to attack these
figures. If this were all there might be
some ray of hope, but on top of this
load we have at least ten boodling
couucilinen out of the fourteen, and a
Lincolu is not as bad off as Omaha in
the way of public debt, while it has
uboun the same per cent, of public debt,
the tax payers of Omaha have to pay
more than $850,000 a year for public
water. The water works of Lincoln are
about self-supporting without taxing
the people. They would be much more
than sell-support ing if the city had an
honest and competent water commis
sioner. If that papsucker Jj. J. Byers is
eiected he will not be much of an im
provement on Percival. The people liv
ing west of the Mississippi river will look
a long time for that great wave of proB
derity unless the money volume of this
country is more than doubled and the
paymont of bauk deposits in some way
