NEW YORK , May 17. In spite of the
threatening weather the attendance at the
Gravescnd track today was fully us large
as that ot yesterday , at least 8,000 being
present. But one arrest was made , and
that was simply on an old warrant , a truce
between De Lacey and the club having
been declared until Monday. In the llrst
race the horses were sent away to a poor
start. Kentlgerna , Miss Maud und Derfur-
gila , were the only ones who were seriously
considered , and the llrst named led to the
last furloiiK , when Hamilton came up with
a rush mid wore Kentlgern.a's lead down
Inch by Inch , winning finally by a head In
a fine contest , the only one of the day.
Comanchc was the favorite In the second ,
winning with a good deal to spare. In the

WASHINGTON , May 17. The plan ft
settling the Indcbtcdnes ] to the govcrnmen
of the Pacific railroads to which the house
committee on Pacific roads will probably
commit Itself has boon formulated. Today
the subcommittee , Representatives Rellly
Kyle , Powers , Hepburn and Boatnor re
ported the bill to the full committee.
The basis of the plan , which Involves nov
feature ] not before proposed , requires the
extinguishment of the present first mort
gage and the substitution of a new one
which Is to bo a first lion for the govcrnmcn1
don't. It will bo conditioned foi
semi-annual payments , the effec
of which will bo to constantly
decrease the debt and gradually oxtlngulsl
It. Payments are required yearly of $1,650 ,
000 from the Union Pacific and $1.500,001
from the Central Pacific. Roughly speaking
It Is cstlmtcd that from fifty to sixty-five
years will bo required to cancel the deb
upon this plan.
The measure will bo known as the Rellly
bill after the chairman of the commtttei
whoso Ideas are largely Incorporated In It
A meting of the full committee will be heU

party will go west on the Union Pacific , Mr
Ames and Mr. Carrto look after some cop
per mines on the line of the road whlcl
Mr. Ames' father assisted so largely to build
Mr. Millar to take a look over the system.
Mr. Ames said that ho was nol
In Omaha In the Interests of the Union Pa

ceivers had taken the management of. the
property out of the hands of .the 'iUfectes
but to look after the Ames trust estate ,
which had large Interests In pmalia. "Wltli
the large crops promised In the west , " sak
Mr. Ames , "I anticipate d revival of trade
and although I have been In Omaha but a
few hours I notice much more stir on your
streets than when here six months ago and
am Informed that conditions are much moro
favorable. There Is returning confidence In
the east and I believe the worst Is over.
The Union Pacific receipts are showing some
what better , being In advance of last year a
trifle , and I can only hope that this state ol
affairs will continue. Union Pacific stocks
continue staple and are considerably higher
than some of our New England roads. " ,
Upon the question pf a reorganization 'ol
the Union Pacific Mr. Amos remarked that
ho thought the Olney proposition would be
come a law with some modifications. When
this was to occur , however , J.ho gentleman
was silent , remarking tha congress was a
very uncertain body and that smalf opposi

as was demonstrated In the silver fight In

Speaking ot the movements of Industrial

New England had Hot yet-oxporlonced-'the

CHICAGO , May 17. The Western Passen

with the Missouri , Kansas & Texas' . Chair
man Caldwell held a few days since that
that road was making a rate of 2 cents per

diately sent word to the line that unless
it stopped selling tickets at that rate It
would demoralize rates throughout' the tcr-

The Missouri , Kansas & Texas replied that
the association had Ignored Its interests
at sundry times when urgently requested
to act otherwise , and asked that the associa
tion lines join It In making rates for home-
seekers' excursions In June. To this an
evasive answer was returned by the associa
tion , and the Missouri , Kansas & Texas at
once informed Chairman Caldwell that It
would make such rates as suited It , and that
the association must make the best of the

It would Join the Western Freight associa

up the rates , and It Is expected they will

CLEVELAND , May 17. This Is the gloomi
est day of the big coal conference. The
miners and operators before the convention
wns called to order seemed as fnr apart as
they ever were. Not even a modus vtvendl
whereby the country wns to be supplied with
coal and tlio question of wages discussed at
another time was expected.
The convention was called to order shortly
after 9 o'clock and Chairman Sorbcr called
for a meeting of tlto conference committee.
The miners had been Informed by the
morning papers ot the ballet expressed by
the operators that President Mcllrltlo could
not keep the men on strike much longer and
they proceeded to dispel what they called a
delusion upon tlio part of the employers.
They pointed to the fact that strikes so com
plete and far-reaching In result arc not de
clared off by the strikers when they have so
much to encourage and so little to discourage
them. Secretary Patrick J. McBryde has In
sisted all along that no settlement can bo
made because the operators have not yet felt
the rigors of a complete tlc-up.
Many operators started homo last night ,
leaving their proxies , and some went away
this morning , so that the convention , when
It was called to order , consisted of not more
than 300 delcgatcts , as against 401 on the
first day. The small operators expect the
larger ones to make an effort to break the
strike , as they , especially those from Pltts
burg , who have taken contracts to deliver
abou 500,000 tons of coal to railroads and for
the lake trade at from $1.90 to $2.17 prevented
Last season coal for fueling vessels sold
from $2.23 to $2.50 , but this year before navi
gation was fairly opened on operating com
pany took the contract to fuel vessels for
$1.90. One of the western roads gets Its
supply at Green Bay , Wls. , for $1.98 from n
local firm , after being shipped by rail and
water over 1,000 miles. Such contracts as
these have so far prevented a settlement of
the vexed question. .
NO AGREEMENT REACHED.
After the joint conference committee had
reported that they could not agree Operator
H. L. Chapman of Ohio , a member of the
conference committee , made a brief address.
Ho recounted the history of the committee
mooting and said that the operators offered
a 05 and G6-cent scale , while the miners
still held out for 70 and 79 cents. He said
that In view of the existing depressed condi
tions and the condition of manufacturing In
terests the operators could not concede the
President McBrlde was the first speaker
for the miners. He said he was willing to
have a vote taken on the compromise of
fered by the operators , but he
would guartee that the miners
would bo unanimous against it. Con
tinuing the speaker said : "As a native
born citizen 'I blush to think that the busi
ness Interests are bullded upon the starva
tion and degrading wages paid the laborers
I represent. Wo want you to glvo us liv
ing wages nnd Increase the price of your
coal so you can get a fair profit. There
can bo no compromise along the lines of
starvation wages. The minors make no
threats , but they-stand together peaceably ,
earnestly and determined as over , and will
go on so , finishing the present flght and
prepared for future fights. "
Following President McBrlde , F. L. nob-
bin of Pennsylvania secured the floor and
made a strong address for the operators.
VIce President Penna of the miners' asso
ciation then took the floor and spoke In be
half of the miners , making an able argu
ment to show that the operators were In a
position to pay living wages now as at any
time in the past.
Colonel Rend of Chicago then secured the
floor. He said he came to pour oil on the
troubled waters. Ho urged both sides to
make some concessions and said that the
05 and 50 cent basis for mining was too low
and proposed a compromise of CO and 09
cents. He scored the minors' association
for refusing to permit miners to work In
the mines whore the operators had con
ceded the demands ot their men and said
that the czar of Wussla would not dare to 1s-
sue such an arbitrary ukase. Turning to the
miners ho said : "You minors must consent
to a compromise scale. If not the operators
will fight you until you are defeated. I am
your friend. Let me Implore you to como
together. Miners , abandon your false po
sition. Operators , glvo the miners more.
Say you agree on a GO-cent basis for Ohio. "
Colonel Rend's remarks were applauded by
the operators and many miners.
Mr. R. H. Johnson of Hocking moved to
refer the matter back to the committee on
conference to report at 3 p. m.
The chair decided that Mr. Chapman's
motion to agree to the report was before the
President J , A. Crawford of the Illinois
Minors association made a short address. In
which ho referred o Colonel Rond's state
ment about his war record and said ho had
done It to strike the shackles off 4,000,000
slaves. After several other speeches from
both sides Colonel Rend moved that the
convention take a recess.
This excited the Ire of VIce President
Penna , who , after the motion had been de
clared out of order , turned to Mr. Rend and
In some hot remarks scored that gentleman ,
wlhout naming him , for Insinuations against
After some further discussion an adjourn
ment was taken till 0:30. :
ADJOURNED WITHOUT RESULTS.
When the conference reassembled In the
afternoon the speech making was continued ,
Mr. Chapman of Plttsburg speaking for the
aporators , und Patrick McBryde and John
Cairns for the minors. Then President Mc-
Drldo of the Miners union asked the oper
ators and spectators to retire from the hall
In order that the miners might hold a con
ference. This was done , nnd a conference
lasting an hour was hold. At Its conclusion
President McBrldo offered a resolution ro
uting that whereas a largo number of opor-
ttors who had refused to attend the con-
feroncj had refused the hand of conciliation
ml peace that had been extended them
the miners boltevcd any settlement arrived

inly add to and accentuate the miserable
ondltlon of the miners , and that It was Im
possible to make any settlement with the
iterators who had mot thorn here. While
tppreclatlng tlio efforts of the operators who
iai ) attended the conference to reach a sot-
.loment the miners asked their co-operation
n bringing peaceable and persuasive pros-
ure to bear upon tlio absent operators to In-
luco them to agrco to terms with the
Miners. These resolutions were offered to
.ho conforcnco as expressing the views of
ho miners , and as there scorned to bo noth-
ng moro to do the conference adjourned

There Are Mnny Tummis Who Can A | > -
Iiroclnto Her Condition Hconuso Thojr
Have Ilcan So
On a recent Sunday afternoon the writer
gave Interested attention to the narration
which follows. It Is here reproduced almost
exactly In the words of the lady from whoso
lilts It fell Mrs. S. B. Cook , of 250 Tliomp-
kins avenue , Brooklyn , N. Y.
Wo three sat at the front windows of their
home overlooking the park , as Mrs. Cook
gave this leallct out ot her life , one of her
llttlo children nestling against her knee.
"My husband and I have been married. "
said the lady , "almost nine years. Before
my marriage I was often tired , weak , ex
hausted , and my strength seemed to be passIng -
Ing from me. I was then troubled a great
deal with Indigestion and dyspepsia , and
sometimes since. I would bo well two or
three months and sick two or three months
oft and on. That was the history of several
years sleeping badly and suffering. I could
not cat any solid food. I lived on boiled
milk , taken hot , right off thestove. . That
was my diet , and I got very tired of It ; but
I was afraid to touch anything else.
"Now to get back to the year 1S93 , last
year , was a long and sad one for me. As the
warm weather came on I hoped to get better ,
but did not. The opening buds on the trees
out there in the park found mo as weak , low
and miserable as I had been In the winter ,
I was losing flesh nml strength , slowly but
surely , nil the time. My nerves were feeble
and shaken so that my sleep was habitually
"At last , by the advice of friends I went
to Pcckskill , where I remained for some
time , but my friends saw I was growing
thinner , and expressed the opinion to one
another that I was In a decline.
"The doctor suggested that I take cod
llvor oil , but I told him I couldn't bear the
looks or the taste of It , either In Its natural
state or as an emulsion. He looked grave
at this but said no more about It. So I lay
there and lingered and sank ; that Is all there
Is to say of the result ot my trip to the
"Every tlmo I went up to visit my wife , "
said Mr. Cook , "I could see she was much
thinner and more feeble than before , al
though she didn't like to admit It. "
"Well , " continued the lady , "I felt that
if It wcro physically possible I must get
home , and so on the 3rd of November , they
wrapped mo up and brought mo home , what
was left of mo ; and what there was of mo
weighed Just 98 pounds , 37 pounds less than
I weighed in my girlhood. Hero I could do
nothing , cat nothing ; only wait for what
might happen. I had tried doctors and
drugs often useful to others but of no use
"On the next day after my return my
husband brought me a bottle of pro-digested
food , and said a friend of his recommended
It and hoped I would try It. I tasted It and
It tasted good , nothing like cod liver oil. I
began taking It according to the directions
without feeling the least confidence In It or
indulging any hope from It. But It did have
a good effect , and that quickly. . It gave mo
"I could eat the old kinds of food and they
didn't distress me. Then I began to get
some strength. At the end ot a week , to
my surprise and delight , f found I had
gained two pounds. At the end of the
second week , two more. And so on , gaining
two pounds every week.
"It Is eight weeks now , and I weigh 114
pounds , Just 16 pounds moro than when I
came homo. I can cat anything , have no
pain , no cough , no headache , can run up
stairs Ilko a girl , and I know you will believe
mo "when I say It Is all duo to Paskola , "
"And you think the pro-digested food
Paskola did all this for you , Mrs. Cook ? "
"Certainly ; If It didn't , what did ? I
never felt so weel , and like living , In ten
years as I do now. "
"It Isn't my wife's Increase In weight
alone , " remarked Mr. Cook , "but look at
her ! her strength ! her enjoyment of her
self ; her bright spirits. She had none of
these things till Paskola gave them to her.
If It- can do as much for other people ,
through her statement being published , why
It ought to bo published. "
"What my husband says , I say , " added
Mrs. Cook ; "anything less would be In
gratitude on my part and culpable Indif
ference to the suffering of others. "
Has this case any lesson for you ? Are you
thin ? Are you famishing for food which
the palate refuses and the stomach cannot
digest ? Are you palo for the want of red
blood ? Are you chilly tccause you have
not flesh to feed the vital flro ? Are you
weak because your food Is not assimilated ?
Are you slowly sinking like a scuttled ship ?
Millions are. Abandon the uao of drugs and
medicines , and test the successful modern
scientific treatment. Paskola Is a food , and
enables the system to use all other foods. It
arrests emaciation , re-establishes Initritlon ,
( Ills up the hollow cheeks , and out ot weak
ness dovelopes power.
