Tho Sound Sense Which Is Some times Obscured by the Sparkle of Irish Wit I Will Cure You. of Rheumatism 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 nave cured tens of thousands of cases ir this way, and my records show that 39 out of 40 who get those six bottles pay, and pay gladly. I have learned 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.

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 opposed to our government attempt ing to hold territories as colonies and treating the inhabitants thereof as subjects and imposing Upon them a government of force. This is the method -of the empire instead of that of tho republic. We oppose the wholo policy of tLe majority In dealing with the Philippines archipelago.
