Fremont dispatch: A second meet
ing of smnll beet growers was held at

taking further action ngainst the Ox
nards for what It Is claimed Is unfair
treatment received at the hands of tho
factory. There was rin attendance of
forty or fifty. It resolved itself Into a
sort of nn experience meeting, many of
thoso present relating their efforts at
beet growing. It developed that tho
spirit of tho meeting was decidedly in
favor of beet growing. The only hos
tility was for what Is claimed to be un
just treatment by tho factory. A reso
lution was passed declaring in favor of
the sugar beet industry provided a re
liable market can be had for tho pro
duct. A written opinion was read from
Judgo Maxwell as to tho legality of the
sugar bounty bill, llo stated that It
was illegal for tho reason that it pro
vided for a bounty for both sugar and
chicory In tho same bill; also that tho
warrants issued for the payment of tho
bounty wero not good because they
could not be legally issued until after a
specific appropriation hud been made
for them; also that tho Oxnurds could
not bo held for damages if, in making
their contracts, they gave the growers

TESLA'S ELECTRIC CURE.
A MECHANICAL DEVICE TO HEAL
ALL ORGANIC DISEASES,
Tim lliminii Syntein (llten a Thorough
Atomle HhnklnR Up by 100 Vibra
tion it fc'econd lUerelno With
out Kxerelitn Fx-Mnjur
Mr. Trlii' Claim.
Ni:v Yoiik, Jan. 20, Scientific men
arc greatly interested in the apparatus
for the treatment of organic diseases
invented by Nicola Tesln, tho young
genius of electricity. Tho assertion
has been made that it would euro any
organic disease, even consumption,
but, as a matter of fact, Tesla makes,
no claim for his invention, that it is a
euro all. He simply says Unit in many
cases he has been able to improve tho
health of his friends, and that he will
wait for some competent physician to
givo his invention a scries of prac
1 1 is theory is that the proper exer
cise for the body Is that which will
reach tho atoms, and give strength to
every portion of tho body. Physical
exercise, such aswalkingor horseback
riding, ho believes to bo of great ben
efit to the system, but for complete ex
ercise each atom of the body should
be reached. Acting upon this theory
he has mudu it possible to givo to the
system by means of electricity the
much needed exercise. He goes fur
ther and declares that by vnrylnir his
apparatus ho can givo special treat
ment to any portion of tho body that
may need strengthening.
When a person's ailment, for in
stil ncc, is caused by torpidity of the
liver, Mr. Tesla says, tho physicians
order tho p.itient to take much and
violent exercise, such as ruling. .Now,
according to Mr. Tesln, if the patient
will take a seat on his apparatus he
will get In half a minute the equiva
lent of a whole day's ride. And, best
of all, he will not be subjected to any
jolting such us ho gets on horseback,
no,- does he experience any of the
fatigue incident to riding. Yet, not
withstanding tho absence of these
characteristics, the patient will have
received us thorough a shaking up as
if. lie had been trotting all day long.
The apparatus accomplishes this by
means of tiny, but powerful electric
shocks at the rate of 100 per second,
and distrlbnted so evenly through the
system that one scarcely perceives any
alteration of his condition.
Ex-Mayor Abrnm S. Hewitt of Now
York recently visited Mr. Tesla's
laboratory in East Houston street and
complained that he was troubled with
his liver. .
"I have been taking something for
it for some time," said Mr. Hewitt,
"but I don't seem to be getting any
"1 think 1 can fix that; just sit down
heio and excuse mo u minute,'' replied
Mr Tesla, pointing to a chair and
handing Mr. llowltt a newspaper.
Then Tesla went out, ostensibly in
search of some nostrum he had tried,
but in reality to turn on tho electric
current. When he returned, in n min
ute or so, Mr. Hewitt seemed an en
tirely changed num. He said, after
Tesla hud explained that tho chair
whereon Mr. Hewitt hud been sittinc
was loaded with electricity, that he
had felt a sort of creeping sepsutinu.
but of a rather pleasant nature and
not at all associated with the ordiuury
notion of tho way in which electricity
manifests itself. And as to his illness
Mr. Hewitt acknowledged that it
seemed to have entirely vanished.
Mr. Tclsa calls his apparatus an
oscillator und describes the treatment
as "a system of mechanical vibra
tions." The principle upon which the
apparatus is based was enunciated by
Mr. Telsa several yeurs ago. und was
immediately taken up und put into
praetico hi a crude way by uu Austrian
professor, who asserts that "vibra
tions" had the inevitable effect of kill
ing tho bucteria which prey upon the
lungs and constitute consumption.

limit of time within which suits can
bo brought by the government to an
nul grants of public lands.
He called attention to the numerous
complications that hnd arisen between
railroads as to grants that overlapped
and tho necessity, for adjustment.
The time in which suits can be brought
expires March 3, 180f., and if the time
limit wero allowed to expire then a
portion of the adjustment act would
be rendered nugatory. The govern
ment, the president says in conclusion,
should not be prevented from going
into the courts und righting wrongs
perpetrated by its agents.
Tho message was referred to the
committee on public lunds.
There was a most unusual demon

CAPTURED BY CHIGAGO.
It Gets the National Deiuocratto Com ca

Washington, Jan. le. Tho Demo
cratic national convention will bo
held at the city of Chicago on July 7.
That was tho decision reached by tho
national Democratic committee after
an interesting, and at times exciting,
session, which continued until 11
o'clock last night.
The main interest, of course, cen
tered in the choice of the convention
city. For this honor there were four
applicants, Chicago, St. Louis, Cincin
nati and New York. Thirty minutes
was allowed each city in which to pre
sent its claims. The speeches, made
by distinguished citizens in each in
stance, were of high order of excel
lence, and, at times, aroused the
greatest enthusiasm. The balloting
began about 0 o'clock and, from the
first, a long and bitter struggle was
Ex-Governor Francis, Governor
Stone, Mayor Wulbridgc and Senator
Vest spoke for St. Louis.
The first ballot resulted: Chicago,
...si. . . ... r . ....
s; Cincinnati, ii: at, i.ouis, m: .cw
York, M. There was pruetically no
change, except a light lluctuatiou of a
vote or two, until the tenth ballot,
when Chicago began gradually to In
crease her vote at the expense of New
York. At tho twenMeth ballot New
York's strength was rapidly disinte
grating, her vote going almost bodily
to Chicago. Rut St. Louis, which had
tenaciously clung to her nineteen
votes, also captured several of Cincin
nati's votes, and on the ballot before
the last led Chicago by one vote. On
tho last ballot, the twenty-ninth,
which was taken shortly before 11
o'clock, the four remaining votes of
Now York were thrown to Chicago,
and she obtained tho necessary plural
ity. Senator Price voted for Cincin
nati to the last.
An examination of the vote by
States shows that St. Louis had prac
tically tho solid support of the freo
silver votes in the committee.
OKLAHOMA FREE HOMES.
House Will Fatts the I.ucey
Washington, Jun. 18. The "free
homes" bill, which wns prepared by
Mr. Lacey and which differs from the
Flynn bill only that it is general in
application and not restricted to Okla
homa, will be favorably reported to
tho House with amendment. That was
decided at to-day's meeting of the
committee on public lands. Flynn's
bill, it will be remembered, was or
dered reported without amendment.
Speaker Reed has completed his un
official consideration of the latter bill
and declares privately that lio favors
it, which is but another way of saying
thut it will pass the House. On tho

found to be an uncompromising con
demnation of the bill and its principle.
Under thev Flynn bill, none of the
settlors who have purchased lands of

includes the great bulk of the settlers,
