Washington, Aug. 7.—A review of
the legislation which has been ac
complished by the second session of
the Fifty-third congress, up to and
including August 3, shows much that
has been done aside from the engross
ing tariff struggle, which has largely
diverted public attention from mat
ters which would, under oilier condi
tions, have been considered of great
importance. One of the most impor
tant acts of the session, which passed
both houses by a strict party vote, be
ing in fulfillment of a plank of the
Democratic platform, was the act re
pealing all laws creating federal
supervisors of elections or defining
their power. The act to enable the
people of Utah to form a constitution
and state government and to be ad
mitted into the Union on an equal
footing with tiic original states pro
vides the machinery by which the
territory will he admitted, probably
in Dee mber, 1895, by adopting a con

of government and insuring against
the supremacy of any church; the
government ceding it much public

Tne act making tne nrst Jiomtay in
September a legal holiday, to be
called Labor day, was passed largely
at the instance of labor organizations,
while scientific societies urged that
the act to define and establish the
units of electrical measurement be
made law. Three bills were passed
to g.ve effect to the award of the
tribunal ol' arbitration at Paris which
adjudicated the seal fisheries disputes;
that act prohibiting seal fishing from
May to July 31 of each year and es
tablishing conditions under which the
fishing can be carried on outside of
the closed season, with penalties for
violating such law and the machinery
for its enforcement. Several meas
ures were enacted in accordance with
the recommendations of the Dockery
commission for improving and amplify
ing the methods of doing the govern
First entitled to mention are the ap
propriation bills for the expenses of
the government which form an im
portant part of the regular work of
every session, although generally the
last to bo finished. The postoflice de
partment bill authorized the post
master general to allow postmasters
of first and second class postoflices to
disburse at their discretion the
amount allotted for their oflices and
admitted to the mails periodical pub
lications published at least quarterly
by benevolent and fraternal societies
aDd other organizations as second
class mail matter.
In the agricultural bill were pro
visions governing the distribution of
seeds by the department. Incidental
to the sundry civil is a provision
granting 1,000.000 acres of the sur
veyed arid public lands to each of the
states to which the desert land law is
applicable—Nebraska, Kansas and
the territories of Arizona, New Mex
ico, Oklahoma and Utah—to be
selected within ten years. One of the
deficiency bills contained legislation
relating to the suspension of pension
ers from the rolls. It was forbidden
to suspend them without thirty days’
notice and notification of the charges
Two resolutions appropriating 8.70.
000 and 810,000 for enforcing the Chi
nese exclusion act were approved De
cember 7. 1893, and April 4, 1894. As
most of the appropriation bills had
not passed at the beginning of the
fiscal year. July 1, it was necessary
to extend by resolution all appropria
tions for the necessary operations of
the government for pensions and for
the District of Columbia.
Muc-h legislation relating to public
lands was accomplished. One act ex
tends to January, 1897, the time with
in which persons may purchase rail
road grant lands -forfeited to the gov
ernment by the act of September,
29, 1890. under the conditions of pur
chase in that act. The reservation of
section 13 in each township of the
Cherokee outlet, Tonkawa reserva
tion and Pawnee reservation lands in
Oklahoma, for educational purposes,
and of section 33 in each township for
public buildings, was ratified and con
ditions fixed for the lease of the lands
bv the territory.
An act was signed prov ding tor the
allotment of certain lands on the res
ervation of the Confederate does and
Missouri Indians of Nebraska, and
Kansas, amending the act of March 3,
18S1. The commissioner of the land
office was authorized to issue patents
as evidence of title for all valid loca
tions made with laud scrip issued pur
suant to degrees of the supreme
court, which valid locations were
made prior to the approval of the
aforesaid act, the same manner that
pateut.s are now issued under the
provisions of section 2 of act of June
As a measure of relief to the West
during the business depression, the
requirement that on each mining
claim located not less than gloo worth
of labor or improvements be made
each year, under penalty of forfeiture,
was suspended for the year 1894. An
act was passed disqualifying registers
or receivers of land offices from hear
ing cases in which they were in
terested, and providing that the sec
retary of the interior shall designate
special agents to hear sueli cases.
The time for making final proof and !
payment for all lands located under
the homestead and desert land laws
was extended for one year, and the
time for final payments under the
pre-emption act when entrymen are
prevented from making payment from
causes beyond their control.
OMAHA STRIKE IS LOST.
The Butchers Have Offered to Arbitrate,
But Will He Mot With hefuHul.
Omaha, Neb., Aug. 7.—The South
Omaha strikers have so far receded
from their position as to be ready to
arbitrate their differences. They had
several large meetings Saturday.
There was considerable agress
iveness, but little riotous demonstra

situation, the strikers agreed to trust
to arbitration and appointed a com
mittee to confer with the packing
house people and arbitrate the scale
of wages. The strikers called on the
managers of the packing houses, and
after some preliminary skirmishing,
they were told that they would be
given an answer to-day.
From other sources it is learned
that the answer will be a positive re
fusal to meet the arbitration commit

those first proposed—a complete sur

In these days of fraud and deception
It is a pleasure to find in any business
concern an absolute regard for trutli.
Probably in no line of business has
deception been practiced as in medi
cine. For this reason any concern
which lives strictly up to its promises
deseives the thanks of everybody,
bueh a concern is the Cook Remedy
company, which is located in suite 30?
Masonic temple in this city.
The standing and reliability of this
company has heretofore been favorably
commented upon by the Dispatch, and
just now it comes to the front with a
cure so remarkable that an account of
it will be found of unusual interest to
the reading public. The case in ques
tion has been fully investigated by
tlie Dispatch, and the following recital
of it can be vouched for as absolutely
true in every particular.
A Truly Marvelous Cure.
The case in question is that of M.
Roehrig, a prosperous young Gerrnan
Ameriean of 55 East Twenty-fifth
Btreet. Mr. Roehrig inherited a pre
disposition to skin disease. When G
years old he suffered much from ecze
ma, but that in time was cured, borne
time ago he contracted blood poison.
The symptoms became alarming and
physician after physician was con
sulted. All tli ir ministrations, how
ever, seemed only to aggravate the
disease. After almost every promi
nent specialist in Chicago had tried in
vain to alleviate his suffering Mr.
Roehrig acted upon the advice of his
parents and went to Germany for the
express purpose of being treated by
the most eminent physicians of Eu
rope. At Cobunr he put himself un
der the treatment of Dra Kuhn and
Martinet, recognized by the medical
profession as authorities on diseases
of the skin and blood. They succeed
ed no better than the many Chicago
doctors who had tried to cure Mr.
Roehrig's awful ailment. Meantime
the condition of the sufferer became
They Could Not Cure Him.
When the most learned savants of
Europe were found unable to benefit
him Mr. Roehrig was ready to give up
all hope. Relatives brought him
back to America to die- Resigned to
what threatened to be a most horrible \
fate, he came back to his Chicago
home and took to his bed. He had
been dosed, drugged and covered with
salve; one physician recommended the
amputation of his toes, and his resi
dence was full of bottles that had con
tained medicines prescribed by ortho
dox practitioners and more modern
specialists, but as he constantly grew
worse Mr Roehrig was willing to quit
trying. Relatives, however, insisted !
that efforts to cure be continued and ■
he again called numerous expert spe
cialists. The result of their treat
ment was the same as before the trip
The condition of the unfortunate suf
ferer was at this time truly pitiable.
Life was worse than a burden, not only !
to himself hut to his relatives and all I
who came in contact with him. It
would be difficult to imagine the
measure of the mental and physical
torture that he underwent while in
the grasp of the dread poison. Death
not only seemed imminent but the
sufferer was ready to welcome it as a
Somebody Suggested Magic rypliileno.
About this time somebody
suggested trying the Cook Rem
edy company. Expecting no bene
fit, but ready to try anything
that promised relief, Mr. Roehrig put
himself under the treatment of the
Cook Remedy Co , 307 Masonic temple,
Chicago, 111., who have made a spec
ialty of treating this disease for near
ly ten years When lie began treat- :
ment in December last he was one
mass of disgusting, mattery sores.
The physicians connected with the
Cook Remedy company say his was
the worst case that ever came under
their notice. He had long been un
able to wear shoes aud was in every
way about as sorry a looking speci
men of humanity as was ever seen.
It was about six months p.go when
Mr. Rcehrig began to take their
treatment. Since beginning he has
followed instructions carefully and
to-day is one of the most healthy men
in all Chicago. When he first began
the Magic Cyphilene treatment he
weighed 130 pounds, and now since
cured by this magic remedy he weighs
208 pounds and is a Kandowin appear
ance. Every sore has healed.and the un
sightly scabs that disiigured him have
given way to healthy cuticle.
The Case Carefully Investigated.
As a natural result of the facts
narrated Mr. Roehrig is a staunch ad
mirer of the Cook Remedy company.
He told his story to the Dispatch re
porter who was sent to investigate the
ease, believing that the recountal of
his experiences may be the means of
saving the lives of others who may be
so unfortunate as to be afflicted with
blood diseases of any kind.
The truthfulness of tee reporter's
statements in the above article are
verined by the following affidavit of

made regarding my case in the above

Many other remarkable cures are
accredited the Cook Remedy company.
This particular case has come under
the observation of the Dispatch. The
man made whole through the efficien
cy of this wonderful remedy is a resi
dent of the city aDd known to be
reputable and responsible, and the
story of his wonderful cure may be
verified by any one who will call at

The old-time orthodox physicians
