ENGLAND IS ALL READY.
Ir Edwin Arnold f ay War Would Find
St. Louis. Dec. 15. Sir Edwin Arnold
was interviewed on the fight between
English troops and the hill men in Iuda.
He said: "The crisis is unusually
alarming for the special reason
that the blood of English oflieerr
has been spilled in this skirmish
near Gilgit. To one familiar with
Anglo-Indian history and spirit, the
gravity of such a fact can hardly be ex
plained. With the blood of English
officers already spilt, war will follow any
action save the most complete repara
tion and expatiation. . The British em
pire is prepared for war. It is so tre
mendously prepared that no man can
estimate the vast extont of the prepara
tions, both in money and in men. A
better time for war! if war must come,
could not be selected.
NEW CURE FOR DRUNKENNESS.
A Cleveland Physician Who Will Give UU
Discovery Free to the World.
Cleveland. Dec. 15. Dr. Keeley has
rival in the person of Dr. Charles Sted
man, who has been treating cases of
drunkenness in the cit y workhouses here
for some weeks, and believes that he has
as effective a cure for the drink habit as
that of Dr. Keeley. Five typical hard
drinkers in the workhouse have yielded
to the treatment and now declare that
they have no desire for liquor. Several
have stood severe tests and shown no re
turn of the appetite. Dr. Stedman is
very much encouraged at the results,
and will continue his treatment of work
honse and other patients until he feels
fully convinced of the value of his meth
od, when he intends to make it public in
order that all can avail themselves of it
at the face cost of the ingredients.

Franca and Germany's Scheme.
Washington, Dec. 15. It has leaked
out that a quiet but determined effort
will be made this winter by diplomatic
representatives of Germany and France
to secure the repeal of the bounty upon
beet sugar, granted by the last congress.
Both of these countries, which are largo
exporters of tuiproduct, producing each
year more than sufficient to supply the
needs of their people, have been serious
ly hurt by the prospect that within a
few years the United States will pro
duce from the beet an amount not ouly
sufficient for domestic consumption, but
sufficient to enter into competition with
them in the markets of the world.
