Londox, Aug. 24. The St. James Qa

illogical and unreasonable that it is very
difficult to understand its precise cause

American demands. There is no doubt
that the matter is a serious one for Cana
da. Not merely local affairs are con

volved. England must and will supply
proper safeguards for her Canadian inter
ests. We must await the next stop. It is

surmises that Canada will doubtless be

Canadians had rejected tho treaty it
would be easy to see why Cleveland should

stand why Cleveland, generally a just

affected by tho Irish vote.

is of the opinion that serious friction is
certain to result.
OPIXIOX AT OTTAWA.
Ottawa, Oat., Aug. 24. The announce
ment that the President had recommended
legislation empowering the abolition of
the bonding system has caused much sur
prise, more surprise than excitement. The
clause calling for equal privileges is in
every way satisfactory. It is held here that
at present no discrimination exists in favor
cf CanafURn vessels. The rights accorded
(junauian vessels in tne nz. v,iair riais
canal is a treaty obligation, which It is
claimed can not bo abrogated by legisla-
tion of either Nation. The Government
has already advertised for tenders and
made the necessary appropriation already
for a Canadian canal at Sault Ste. Marie
connecting Lakes Heron uud Superior,
( which will give connections to the ocean.
WHAT FISHERMEN THINK.
Gloucester, Mass.. Aug. 24. The Pres
ident's message was much commented on
by fishing vessel owners this morning. It
was the general opinion among business
, men that no one here wanted retaliation
as outlined in tho massage. An embargo
placed on Canadian lisli and the same
treatment as Americans receiva would be
all that would be required to settle the
' difficulty between the two countries. On
the other hand the men who man the vee-
sels are unanimous in their opinions that
what the President has proposed is just

jumped from a horse car before a full
stop was made, and with face to the
rear of the car, was thrown violently
to the ground. As the conductor

and credulous abjure her guidance, and are
misled by charlatanism and bombast. For
many years Hostetter's Stomach Bitters
has been achieving victories over disease,
which are recorded in testimony from thou
sands of the debilitated, nervous, dyspeptic,
bilious aud malaria-persecuted.

One ef the nest important roinsef Ui
human My is the LIVER. When it fails to
rtserly perform its functions the entire
system becomes teranfee'. The BRAIN.
KIDNEYS, STOMACH, BOWELS, all refus
to perform their work. DYSPEPSIA. CON
STIPATI0N, RHEUMATISM, KIDNEY DIS
EASE, etc., are the results, unless some
thing is done to assist Nature in throwing
off the impurities caused by inaction ef a
TORPID LIVER. This assistance so ne
cessary will be found in
Prickly Ash Bitters !
It acts directly on the LIVER, STOMACH
and KIDNEYS, and by its mild and cathartic
effect and f eneral tonic qualities restores
these organs to a sound, healthy condition,
and cures all diseases arising from these
causes. It PURIFIES THE BLOOD, tones
up tho system, and restores perfect health.
If your druggist does not keep it ask him to
