An Associated press cablegram from
San Juan, Porto Rico, under date of
December 12, said: Santiago Iglesias,
president of the federation of work
men of Porto Rico, together with nine
companions, was tried in the district
court f San Juan yesterday on a
charge of conspiracy. Today Iglesias
was sentenced to two years and three
months imprisonment. Seven of
bis companions were sentenced to four
months' imprisonment, while two were
acquitted of the charge of being the
founders of an illegal association and
conspiracy in August, 1900, to raise

No pay until you know it.
After 2,000 experiments, I have
learned how to cure Rheumatism. Not
to turn bony joints into flesh again;
that is impossible. But I can cure the
disease' always, at any state, and for
ever. I ask for no money. Simply write
me a postal and I will send you an
order on your nearest druggist for six
bottles of Dr. Shoop's Rheumatic Cure,
for every druggist keeps it. use it for
a month, and if it does what I claim
pay your druggist $5.50 for it. If it
doesn't I will pay him myself.
I have no samples. Any medicine
that can affect Rheumatism with but
a few doses must bo drugged to tho
veigo of danger. I use no such drugs.
It is folly to take them. You.must get
the disease out of the blood.
My remedy does that, even in the
most difficult, obstinate cases. No
matter how impossible this seems to
you, I know it and I take the risk. 1

ir this way, and my records show that
39 out of 40 who get those six bottles

that people in general are honest with.
a physician who cures them. That is
all I ask. If I fail I don't expect a
penny from you.
Simply write me a postal card or
letter. Let me send you an order for
the medicine. Take it for a mont),
for it won't harm you anyway. If it
cures, pay $5.50. I leave that entirely
to you. I will mail you a book that
tells how I do it. Address Dr. Shooo,

the price of labor in Porto Rico.
Iglesias, as the founder of the con
spiracy, gets the heaviest sentence.
The other men were merely his asso
ciates in the crime. Under the Span
ish law, which is still in force here,
persons convicted of a crime have to
pay the costs. The local federation of
the workmen of Porto Rico, which is
now part of the American federation
of labor, under tho presidency of Sam
uel Gompers, has been ordered dis
solved, as it has been adjudged illegal
on account of this conspiracy. Mr.
Savage, judge of the district court, dis
sented as to the illegality of the local
federation, although he agreed that
Iglesias was guilty of a conspiracy to
raise the price of labor in August, 1900,
when the currency of Porto Rico was
changed. At that time nearly all the
merchants and employers here raised
their prices from pesos to dollars, an
advance of 40 cents. Iglesias did the
same, contending that he only raised
wages in proportion to other increases.
This constitutes the conspiracy. The
case has been appealed to the supreme
court of Porto Rico, where it prob
ably will be heard in a month. Pend
ing this appeal Iglesias is at liberty.
The mass meeting of the federation of
labor called for next Sunday probably
will be called off, as the plans of the
federation are temporarily deranged.
Iglesias says politics influenced the
decision against him, as the judges
belonged to tho local republican par
ty, while Iglesias is a federalist. One
of the acquitted men has turned re
publican, it is said, since the time of
the conspiracy. Since Iglesias has been
acting as the local organizer of the
American federation of labor he has
been continually attacked in circulars
and threatened by certain .republicans
who oppose his plans. Last Tuesday
night these republicans fired several
shots at the building of the federa
tion. The police searched the rooms
of these men for arms, but found
nothing. The men who fired the shots
had not been arrested up to this morn
ing. Iglesias has petitioned Governor
Hunt, citing reported assaults upon
his men and asking for protection.
Iglesias said: "If the laws of Porto
Rico are inadequate to punish these
offenders; if I cannot continue my
work of Americanizing Porto Rican
laborers unmolested, please inform
me, so" that I can return to the United
States, abandoning this country and
my mission here."
A cablegram from London says that
Northampton is the first English town
seriously to feel the wave of depres
sion now passing over Europe. Seven
hundred men are out of work and the
unemployed women are counted by
multitudes."- Two-thirds of the fac
tories are idle; houses are standing
empty, and thousands who a few weeks
ago were earning good wages are to
day existing on a few shillings a week.
Representative Richardson has pre
sented to the house a minority report
relating to the Philippine tariff bill.
This report says; "The measure Is
but another stop in the well marked
line of imperialism. It is enacting a
policy of pure colonialism and the
worst form of that policy. We are
