TEHRE HAUTE , Ind. , Oct. 13. Across the
cornlands of Illinois the train of the presi
dent swept all last night after leaving St.
Louts and today crossed the line Into In
diana , reaching Terre Haute .soon after
ward. The Pennsylvania flyer was delivered
to the Vandalta line at St. Louis and orders
were Issued by the Vandalla officials that
no train should run within thirty minutes
either before or behind , giving the presi
dential train practically a clear track.
The president arose early after a refreshIng -
Ing night's sleep , ready to meet the re
quirements of another day of arduous trav-
ffiellng. The weather Is a continuation of
that which has tavorcu the entire journey.
Points scheduled for speeches today were
Torre' Haute , Decatur nnd Springfield , 111.
But throughout the trip the president has
expressed a desire to have the train stopped
nt every point where the crowd is largo
nnd clamorous to see and hear him. At , Terre
Haute the president entered a carriage , fol
lowed by Secretaries Gage , Wilson und Bliss ,
pnd the party was given a drive about the
city , lasting nearly halt an. hour. The
departure from the train was made just on
the outskirts and the president , after being
Shown the city , was driven to the station to
re-embark. At all points ho passed the
great throngs of people were enthusiastic.
Theh streets were lined with people eager
to catch a gllmpso of the president and to

PARIS. 111. . Oct. 15. One of the most In
teresting Incidents in the entire presidential
trip occurred at Terre Haute after his drive
around the city , which gave the president an
opportunity to see the Terre Haute street
fair , now In progress. Ho ascended n plat
form near the Union depot arm in arm with
the venerable Richard W. Thompson , ex-
secretary 'of the navy. The sight of the
veteran statesman on the arm of the pres
ident of the United States was the signal
for uproarious and long-continued appfuuse
from 12,000 throats. Mr. Thompson Intro
duced tbo president , who said :
My Fellow Citizens : I have no expectation
of making myself heard by this vast assem
blage of my fellow citizens of tbo state of
Indiana. I thank you for this warm and
hearty reception. It gives mo peculiar nlpas-
ure to meet again the citizens of the city
of Terre Haute and not the Isnst of that
pleasure Is that It gives me an opportunity
of meeting my old friend , your neighbor ,
the veteran statesman and patriot , Hon.
Richard W. Thompson. I do not forget that
this wan tbo home of that other distinguished
Indlanlau , whoso eloquence moved great au
diences , whoso friendship I enjoyed , the Hon.
D. W > Voorhees. ( Applause. ) My fellow cit
izens , for several days we have been travelIng -
Ing through the great west , nnd everywhere
we have gone great assemblages like this
have greeted us. I do not misinterpret. I
know what It means. It has no personal
significance und It does mean that all tbo
people of all the sections 'aro once more
united under one flag , united In one purpose
and patriotism. It means , my fellow citi
zens , that the people of the United States
want the victories of the army and navy
to bo recognized In the treaty of peace. It
means that they want these who arc charged
with the administration of the government
to BOO to It that the war was not In vain and
that the lust fruits of our achievements on
land and sea shall not be lost. ( Great ap

J people listened to the president. His re
marks were greeted with great enthusiasm.

that Is to stand by the old flag. Fortunately
for u < s In every part of the country all the
people beneath the folda of that glorious old

Secretaries Gage and Wilson also made
brief addresses at Paris. At Oakland nnd
Arcola the stops were very short and the

DECATUR , 111. , Oct. 15. The citizens of
Arcola uiado exceptionally good preparations
for the reception of the president. From
the rear platform of his car ha stepped over
a carpeted passageway to a stand laden with
flowers and covered with American Hags. At
the conclusion of hla speech hero thr presi
dent called for three cheers for the army
and navy , which were given with J > will.
Then the president said : "Three cheers for
the old flag. " The response was tro-
mcndoux. Ono old man near the platform
waved his hat and shouted "Dewey made
them honor It. " The president smiled at
this remark nud nodded hla head as It In
approval of the sentiment Mr. MoKlnley'g
speech at Arcola was as follows :
My Fellow Citizens : Wo are a most fortunate -
tunato people. We not only have a rovlvrl
of patriotism among tha people but we
havu a return of prosperity to thb ioun-
try. Our business conditions are good at
homo and our trade is good abroad. Ylie
producer has more and better consumers than
he had a few vcara ago. That Is because
the business of the country has been re
stored. The factories and shons and the
great productive enterprises are again at
work , so that you have consumers at home
as well as consumers abroad. We sold last
year to Europe more than we bought of Eu
rope. We sent more American products to
the old world , produced and made In the
United States by our own labor , than l\e
sent out of the country in any year in nil
our hlbtory ; arid more than turoo fourths of
our exportatlous came from the fields ar.d
farms of the United States. And here in
your city of Arcola you know what it mcat.t
to have n foreign market. Who.i you < an-
not sell your broonicorn In o-ir own coun
try you are glad to send the surplus to
some other country.
Now , my fellow citizens , we have resting
on us a a people grave problems and it Is
our business to solve them wisely , because
the people of the country , whenever IheV
consider calmly and soberly aij' great "JUPS-
tlon , are unerring In Judgment. Mr. Lin
coln followed the people and following the
people he made no mistake. Wo ha\o had
great glory out of the war and in UB settle
ments nnd we must be cuidjd only by ihfa
demands of right and eonsctonie and dulv.
And when we have settled the problems i.f
the .war our next triumphs must be those
of commerce , net bv arm ? , but by our su
perior advantages nnd by the cklll and ge
nius and eneigy cf our people. 1 ihank
you for this cordial reception and urn gla 1
to know that all the people of all tl'o coun

LETTISH FHOM GKXI311AI. IJXAHK3
General Shatter Gives Dr. GnllirnKl
aa Important Document.
A copy of a document of'considerable his-
torlcal Importance In connection with UN
war Jn Cuba was left In the hands of Dr
W. J. Galbralth by General1 Shafter just be
fore the latter took his departure for Chicago
cage yeste/day afternoon. Its value lies Ir
the fact that It gives something of a solu
tion of the mystery that baa conslderablj
puzzled both army officials and citizens thi
reason why the Spaniards so readily sur
rendered Santiago do Cuba to the army un
dpr General Shatter.
The paper is a copy of a letter sent t <
the governor-ln-chlef of Cuba and the mln
Ister of war at Madrid by General Linares
the commander- the forces In Santiago
It was written some two weeks or more be
fnre the surrender of the city. It tells of th
desperate stralta In which the Spanish sol
dlory were and shows that their suffering
led to the surrender of the city before 1
was expected. The final lines of the lette
also Indicate that the Spanish governmen
had been considering the question of sur
rqnder at that time , but were afraid appar
cjitly to take the step. The paper has neve
before been published , although It has beei
In General Shatter's possession over ;
month. It Is as follows In full :

This Interesting letter -was brought to
Ight In the course of a conversation be-
\vccn General Shatter and Dr. Galbralth.
Dr. Galbraith was thrown Into close rela-
lonshlp with the distinguished visitor , for
.ho latter placed himself In his hands , ouln ; ;
o the close friendship that exists between
Dr. Galbralth and Dr. Goodfcllow. General
Shatter's staff surgeon.
While the two weio talking over the
Cuban war General Shatter remarked that
General Linares had come to regard him
highly , stating at one time that he , Gen
eral Shatter , was a "true Christian geu-
.leman. " To this fact ho ascribed the re
ceipt of a copy of the above letter , whose
contents ho then disclosed to Dr. Galbralth.
The latter became at once interested and
said : "General , that letter ought to bo
published. The 'American people are deeply
ntorested In the course of events that led
up to the surrender of Santiago and that
otter throws Inside light upon the causes
; hat led to the fall of the city. "
"If you think so , " responded General
Shafter , "I will turn the letter over to you
and you can do whatever you please with
Consequently when the party arrived at
the depot and entered the train , General
Shatter rummaged among his belongings
and brought to light the letter. This he
turned over toDr. . Galbralth , who has It
now In his possession.
Dr. Galbralth met with the favor of Gen
eral Shafter and before leaving the latter
Invited him to attend the Peace Jubilee In

PARIS , Oct. IB. The antl-rovlslonlst
papers regard the reported discovery of a
military plot against the government as be-
ng pure Invention. The Figaro says It Is
nformed that the French generals agree In
declaring that their duty Is to show abso-
Ute obedience to the government. The Gau-
ois classes the affair as "a conspiracy with
out conspirators. " In spite of this , the
papers which announced the conspiracy In
sist on the exactness of their information.
The Petite Hopubliquo Francalse points out
that there has been no official denial of the
reported conspiracy. The Auroro asserts
that the government received warning of the
plot from different sources and possesses
mportant documentary evidence and state
ments of witnesses , According to the Petit
Bleu , the generals engaged In the plot met
at Versailles and sent emissaries 'to ' Prince
Victor Bonaparte. The hesitation of Prince
Victor , however , obliged them to turn In an

Miss Iota A. Chllds. cashier nt the res
taurant of UUhop & Co. , 1513-17 Capitol nvc-
line , was Bbot and dangerously wounded
last night as the result of jealousy between
horholf and Mrs. C. W. Bishop , wlto of IMS
of the proprlutois. The bullet which took
cftect lodged at the base of the brain , frac
turing the skull.
The chambers of the linolvcr were em
ptied and ono ball entered the leg of 12. M.
Arendall of Mnderla , Cal. , who was Ht.iml-
ing across the street. Another bullet struck
n pedestrian In the shoulder , but he was
removed from the bcono oy friends before
his Identity could bo learned. The shoot
ing occurred at S:15 : o'clock at Sixteenth
aud Capitol n\cnuo when the streets wcic
hrongcd with a Saturday night crowd.
The shooting was the outcome of an old
rouble which has broken out before with
ess serious results. Several mouths ago
Irs. Bishop became suspicious that her htis-
> and's relations with the cashier were ou
nero of a personal than a business basis.
An assault and several unpleasant intcr-
iews followed aud Bishop Dually made his
homo over the restaurant , len\lng his wlfo
n her lodgings at 524 South Sixteenth street ,
lo has suppoitcd her since that tluio , but
las had no convei Ballon with her.
Last night Mrs. Blchop walked past the
cstaurant and believed sbo observed Borne-
hlug unusual In the manner of the cashier
nd her husband , who were working at the
cashier's desk inside. She says that the
cashier seemed to bo agitated on omo ac
count and that Bishop wai trying to con
sole her. The friendly Interest which the
> roprletor seemed to bo taking excited Mrs.
Bishop to such a degree that she was ready
'or ' the desperate action which followed.
AVnltliiir for Her Vielliu.
She was armed with .a revolver and hold
ing It ready In her hand she waited for ths
rtppearanco of the cashier , who went off
duty about S o'clock. Miss Chllds came
out of the restaurant with her sister and
walked west on Capitol avenue toward her
jomo at 113 South Twenty-eighth street.
They had reached the corner of Sixteenth
street when Mrs. Bishop overtook them
and without warning shot the cashier In the
lead. The bullet struck several hairpins
and curled them up curiously. It embedded
itself In the bones of the skull , not having
struck a direct blow.
Miss Chllds fell to the pavement and ,
brushing the girl's sister aside , Mrs. Bishop
stood over her bodySbo pointed the re
volver at her head and llred the four re
maining chambers within a distance of a
few feet. Her excitement was such , how
ever , that none of the bullets found their
The frenzied woman dropped her revolver
and It was tccured by some unknown per
son. She "then walked In a dazed way
toward the Btreetj where she was inter
cepted by a patrolman and placed under
arrest for shooting- with Intent to kill. Her
only regret seemed to bo that her attempt
did not prove an entire success. She said
the woman had ruined her homo and that
she hoped she had killed her. At the sta
tion she said she had carried the revolver
for some time and had not Intended to shoot
her supposed rival on this particular occa
sion until she had become desperate from
her observation of the scene at the cashier's
Surgeon Iteinoven the Hall.
The Injured woman was taken to the
Presbyterian hospital , where the bullet waa
removed from her ihead. It "was found tc
IIAVO been flattened to the thinness of o
coin. The attending surgeon stated that a
fracture existed In the skull , which made
the case serious. Ho could not foretell the
result , ho added , until after a reasonable
time , but expressed the opinion that the
woman would recover. The bullet IE
thought to have been of < 38-callbcr.
Mr. Arendall , a stranger In the city , was
Balking on the crowded sidewalk In front of
the postofflco when the shooting occurred
just opposite and ono oC t'.n ; bounding bulkls
lodged In his leg. Ho was carried to a drug
store and a temporary dressing applied and
lie was later removed to the Clarkson Me
morial hospital. The surgeon probed the
wound but was unable to locate the ball and
the effort was abandoned. The second vic
tim was at once taken in charge by hla
friends. There were several hundred people
In the Immediate neighborhood at the time
of the shooting and considerable excitement
prevailed. The crowd successively hunted
doorways and telegraph poles and then gath
ered about the wounded woman.
Story of Mr. Ulnhon.
Mr. Bishop nnd people In the restaurant
state that nothing transpired at the counter
which could possibly have explained Mrs.
Bishop's excited condition. His relations
with the cashier , Mr. Bishop explains , have
at no time exceeded the bounds of ordinary
courtesy. Ho adds that he had even yielded
to Mrs. Bishop's prejudice in the matter and
had promised to dispense with her services
at the conclusion of the exposition trade. Ilf

VIRDEN" , 111. , Oct. 15. Coroner Hart to
day resumed the Inquest over the bodies
of the vlctlma of the light at the Chlcago-
Vlrden Coal company shaft Insldo the stock
ade. Thre6 witnesses were examined , all
ox-guards of the company. They admitted
that they were present during the fight , but
denied having taken part In the battle. Ono
witness swore that he came hero to help
build the Blockade and afterwards was employed - 1
ployed as cook. He said that he , together 1
with about twcnty-flvo others , were tworn
In by Sheriff Davenport as deputies. In the
cross-examination the attorney , Mooney ,
representing the miners' union , brought out
the fact that the witness had never re
ceived a written commission or had
never filed a bond. Attorney Patton asked
If It was necessary to have a written com
mission and bonds ; If BO ho would like to
see the authority.
The attorney , Mooney , said : "Havo you
a copy of the statutes ? "
"No , not with me , " hcpllcd Mr. Patlon.
"I am sorry , " said Sir. Mooney , "as
would like very much to show you my
authority. " Ono of the Jurors then spolcn
up nnd asked : "Mr. Mooney , do I under
stand you to say that It Is necessary to ilia
a bond and have a written commission to
create a legal deputy sheriff ? "
The miners' counsel assured him that euch
was the case. "Then , " said the juror , "I
can say there have been lots of papers
served In Macoupln county that nro Illegal ,
as I have served as deputy sheriff number
less times for years and have never given
a bond or received a written commission. "
The mine officials have as yet given no
Intimation regarding the number of wit
nesses they expect to present , but from the
leisurely manner In which the Inquest wua
conducted today it may bo prolonged ( i
week. It Is the evident Intention to bring
out as much testimony on both sides ui
possible. Lawyer Mooney Is apparently tryIng -
Ing to get testimony tending to Implicate
the Inmates of the stockade and the train
guards In the battle , while the Company
attorney Is drawing out detailed Individual
statements of the personal experiences of
the mine guards.

Two hearts can make a love affair , but it
takes three , at least , to make a home , and
one of them must be that of & baby. The
young : married couples that start out in life
with the idea that children art nuisances ,
nnd that they do not want and will not
have them , arc the kind that you read
about every day in the newspapers in the
divorce column. A home without children
is not a home. God and Nature never in
tended that there should be a place called
home that did not resound with tUq patter
of childish footsteps.
There are tens of thousands of homes
that are childless because of the ill-health
of the wife and would.be mother. There
are tens of thousands of other homes childless -
less because the little ones have died al
most as goon us they were born. In both _ A
cases Dr. Plcrce'a Favorite Prescription is \
n sovereign remedy. It acts directly on J
the delicate nnd important organs that
make wlfehood and motherhood possible.
It makes them well , strong , vigorous , virile ,
and clastic. It does away with the dangers
of maternity. It banishes the usual dis
comforts of the expectant period and
makes baby's advent easy and almost pain
less. It insures the little new corner's
health and an ample supply of nourish
ment. The prospective mother prepares A'
herself for maternity by taking the 'Fa- P-s .
vorite Prescription " and gives her child a A.
fair start in life by giving it o strong and
well developed body. Tliounauda of homes
that were childless , to .day echo with
babies' laughter , and bless this great medi
cine. Thousands of women whn were
weak , nervous , despondent invalids , arc
to-day happy , healthy wives and mothers
because of this medicine. Medicine /leal-
