Remedy That Makes New Blood

Hundreds of women suffer from head
aches, dizziness, rebtlessness, languor
and timidity. Few realize that their
misery all comes from the bad state of
their blood. They take one thing for
their head, another for their stomach,
ft third for their nerves, and yet all the
while it is simply their poor blood that
Is the cause of their discomfort.
If one sure remedy for making good,
rich blood were used every one of their
distressing ailments would disappear, as
they did in the case of Mrs. Ella F.
Stoue, who had been ailing for years and
was completely run down before she re
alized the uatiire of her trouble.
"For several years," said Mrs. Stone,
"I suffered from general debility. It
began about lSfKJ with indigestion, ner
vousness and steady headaches. Up to

ELECTORAL VOTE WILL BE CAN

All Amendments and Measure Itself
to Be Disposed of at Once Rail

Right of Way in House.
WASHINGTON The senate has
laid out an extended program for it
self this week. According to this
plan Monday and Tuesday will be
given over almost entirely to the
statehood bill. Wednesday the sen
ate will proceed to the hall of repre
sentatives and assist in canvassing
the electoral vote. On Monday the
statehood bills will be displaced tem
porarily to permit the managers of
the Swayne impeachment trial to
present the replication of the house
of representatives to Judge Swayne's
answer in the proceedings against
him, but it is not expected that they
will consume much time. Appropria
tion bills will occupy the balance ot
the time during the week.
The republican steering committee
has decided that th pme food bill
shall become the unfinished business
after the disposal of the sta'eiu'ou
bill, but it is not believed that much
if any time will be found tills week
for its consideration.
The agricultural appropriation is
now under consideration and will con
tinue to Le discussed as opportunity
offers and it is expected that by the
time it is out of the way the District
of Columbia and the Indian bills will
be ready for consideration. With the
statehood bill out of the way, the pol
icy will be to press the supply bills
persistently and nothing but the
Swayne trial will he permitted to
stand in their way.
In accordance with the unanimous
agreement reached the statehood bill

the right of way in the house of rep

day and Wednesday. The rule mak
ing the bill giving the Interstate Com

a special order during sessions which
are to begin an ..our earlier than
usual on Tuesday and Wednesday will
be the subject of lively debate on
Monday. Opposition to the bill which
has been agreed on by the republi
cans on the committee of interstate
commerce will be voiced in the de
bate on this rule. This opposition
may come from the minority devel
oped in the republican conference
Friday, as well as from the democrats
of the house. If the two should unite
to defeat the rule those who have
counted noses say this could be ac
complished. Should the rule be
adopted, as is the belief of the ma
jority leaders, there will be no oppor
tunity to amend the bill. The demo
crats will be given an opportunity
to show their strength on the Davy
bill to be offered as a substitute for
the Esch-Townsend bill, when the
time comes to vote on that measure
at 4 o'clock Wednesday. The discus
sion will be interrupted on Wednes
day to permit the two houses of con
gress to assemble in the hall of the
house and count the electoral vote
for president and vice president.

THAT BEEF TRUST.
No Evasion cf Decision Relative
WASHINGTON It can be said by
authority th.it unless the corporations
constituting the alleged "beef trust"
shall heed the injunction made per
manent by the decision of the su
preme court of the United States, the
government will institute proceedings
against the individual members of the
corporations to enforce the decision
of the court.
The proceedings will be under the
criminal law, if such can be instituted.
The minds of the president and mem
bers of his cabinet are made up fully
on the question. They have deter
mined that the "beef trust" shall obey
the law. and now that the highest
court in the land has upheld the
hands of the administration, it is
said they will permit no further
"dilly-dallying" with the subject.
At Tuesday's cabinet meeting the
president and Attorney General
Moody shared in the congratulations
of the members of the cabinet on the
result of the' "beef trust" cases be
fore the supreme court.
The president, who made no at
tempt to conceal his satisfaction at
the decision of the court, united with
the members of the cabinet in con
gratulating the ;'tomvy general. The
subject was consider, d briefly at the
meeting, but no definite conclusion
was reached as to what action, if
any, the government would take in
the future, except the general deter
mination to enforce the law as it has
been construed by the courts. The
president and the members of the cab
inet regard the decision of the su
preme court as a signal triumph of
law as they have viewed R. and are
prepared to carry it into effect abso
lutely. All the members of the cabinet
were present at the meeting except
Secretaries Hay and Wilson, the for
mer still being confined to his home
by a severe cold.
Again, the president emphasized
his interest in the arbitration treaties
pending before the senate. He holds
that the opponents of the treaties are
proceeding on wrong premises in
maintaining that they may be used
by foreign countries as a basis for ac
tion against certain of the southern
states in the collection of old claims.
Some departmental matters were
considered at the meeting, the most
important of which was the action of
Postmaster General Wynne in notify
ing John G. Capers, republican na
tional committeeman of South Caro
lina, that postmasters in that state
will be dirmissed from the service if,
in the future, they pay the expenses
of delegates to political conventions.
The action of the postmaster general
was approved by the president and
the cabinet. In principle the declara
tion of Mr. Wynne will apply to all
other states where such methods are

House Bill on Railroad Rates Thought
To Br Faulty.
WASHINGTON Congressman Hin
shaw called at the white house to con
fer with President Roosevelt on mat
ters pertaining to the Fourth Nebras
ka district and also to measures pend
ing In. fere the house relating to sub
jects if legislat'on of paramount pub
lic interest. Incidentally, the talk turn
ed upon the bill which Mr. Townsend
introduced in the house January 31.
providing for additional powers to be
vested in the interstate commerce
commission. Mr. Hinshaw expressed
the opinion that while the Townsend
bill would meet the public demand for
a better regulation of railroads rates,
it does not go far enough, and since
that bill will be considered by the
house within a few days, Mr. Hinshaw
desired to learn whether its provisions
would be satisfactory to the adminis
tration. The president, however, did
not express approval or disapproval of
the Townsend bill, but Mr. Hinshaw
left the white house with the impres
sion that the president would like to
the present session enact a law em
powering the interstate commerce
commission to fix rates, to prevent
discrimination between shippers, to
abolish private ear lines, and to give
the commission authority to enforce
Mr. Hinshaw is of opinion that
nothing short of such legislation
would satisfy his constituents, but he
is not at all sanguine that the senate
would pass such a bill while it is not
vet settled that the house will do so.

GENERAL OKU'S HEADQUAR
TERS The Russian attempt to turn
General Oku's left flank has proved a
complete failure. Following on the
failure of the recent cavalry raid
down the railway this, it is thought
by the Japanese, will probably induce
the Russians to await in the future
Japanese attacks. The attempt, even
with the bombardment of other por
tions of the line or a cavalry move
ment around the flank, was doomed
to failure from the start. The Ja
panese were at Heikoutal, but with
drew its small force from there and
allowed the Russians to occupy the
positions until they could move over
enough men to make its recapture
The reoccupation of this position
was easily accomplished, although
the loss was heavy. The casualties
have not yet been reported, but it is
believed that they will amount to
The Russians had five divisions en
gaged at Heikoutai and in that direc
tion. They were driven back by less
than two Japanese divisions.
Over 100.000 men were engaged in
the Russian demonstration against
the Japanese positions immediately
east of Heikoutai, a force strong
enough to have been successful, as
but one Japanese division was sent
against them. The Russian loss is
estimated at over 4,000, although
prisoners say that one regiment was
practically annihilated. The Japan
ese loss is placed at only 200, due to
the fact that they remained in their
trenches while the Russians were
forced to cross open ground, solidly
frozen, where the construction of
shelter trenches was impossible. The
ground being covered with snow, was
naturally a great disadvantage to the
attacking lorce, as it was plainly
visible against the white back
ground for a long distance. The Ja
panese suffered the same disadvan
tages in the recapture of Heikoutai.
The weather was very cold during
the fighting, the minimum being 6
degrees below zero, and the maxi
mum 14 degrees above zero. The
Russians did not retreat north, but
retired, well out of range, with no
sign of further activity.
ST. PETERSBURG The emperor
has received the following dispatch
from General Kuropatkin:
The Japanese during the night of

on the left bank of the Hun river, op

village, but subsequently were driven
out with great loss. . The Russian
casualties were 100.
MEANS MUCH FOR OMAHA.
Proposition to Make It General Dis
tributing Point for Supplies.
WASHINGTON There is pending
in the war office a proposition to raise
Omaha to the importance of a general
distributing point for quartermaster's
supplies. It is now the distributing
station for army supplies destined to
military posts within the department
of the Missouri. The recent comple
tion of the new addition to the quar
termaster's supply depot warehouse in
Omaha has provided ample space foi
the Handling of a much larger ton
nage. It is understood that tiiere are
but three general supply depots in
the United States, viz.. New York, San
Francisco and Jelfersonville. Ind.. the
latter station having been established
during the civil war and maintained
largely because of tradition. The de
velopment of the west in the matter
of transportation facilities has given
rise to a demand for a general supply
station in the mid-west. Omaha's
claims to this n?w distinction have
been advocated by Senator Millard,
who recently took the matter up with
General C. F. Humphrey, quartermas
ter general of the army. General
Humphrey was for a long time sta
tioned at Omaha as chief quartermas
ter of the department of the Platte
and is personally conversant with the
situation, as he is. of course, with the
needs of the service in every part of
the United States. Senator Millard
feels confident that he will have the
good will of General Humphrey in the
effort to enhance the importance of
Omaha as a supply station. Success
in this matter would, of course, en
able the wholesale merchants and
manufacturers of Nebraska to bid on
a variety of army supplies for use
throughout the United States and the
Philippines, and no doubt they would
receive large contracts. It is possible
that an act of congress may be neces
sary to bring this about, but Senator
Millard is in hopes that it can be
done by order of the secretary of war.

and creating a "court of transporta

of the Esch-Townsend measures, with
amendments taken from the Hepburn
hill. This action was reached after

The Attack on British Official at
ST. PETERSBURG New expli
cations between Great Britain and
Russia are feared on account of the
attack on the British consul and vice
consul at Warsaw Saturday night.
Coming on the heels or the placards
posted by Assistant Police Chief
Roudeneff at Moscow charging Great
Britain with inciting the revolution
in Russia, the Warsaw Incident is
likely to arouse an outburst in Great
Britain which may again strain rela
tions between the two countries. Be
yond the fact of the attack at War
saw resulting in the wounding of the
British vice consul, who is now in a
hospital, the British embassy here
has no details of the affair, but Sir
Charles Hardinge the British am
bassador has already directed a note
to Foreign Minister Lamsdorff ask
ing for an immediate investigation
and explanation. reserving . any
claims which may be hereafter made
and at the same time asking for the
protection of British corsuls through
out the eninire. By the first train he
also dispatched Major Nanier, the (
British military atnehe. to vars.i
to secure a full report on the cir
cumstances. Count Lamsdorff hastened to reply

an immediate inquiry would be made
to establsih the facts. The consuis

by Cossacks while the latter were

Count Lamsdorff replied to Ambas
sador Hardinge's second note on the
subject of the Moscow placards by
saying that instructions had been
sent to remove all traces of the
placards from the streets. It is now
learned, however, that similar no
tices had been posted at Libau and
Reval, which led to a renewal of rep
resentations on this score. In this
connection the appearance of the
