today approved the bond of the Block
bolder of the defunct Oerman bank of
Murdoch:, under which the stockholder!

tlon within the next six months. Br the
terms of the agreement they are to be
given possession of all of the paper and
records of the bank. They will wind up
Its affairs In their own way, but are liable
for all deposits and bills outstanding. It
Is understood that the stockholders will
appoint C. F. Cutbman, cashier of ths
Bank of Murdock, aa trustee. The lia
bilities of the defunct bank are approxi
mately' $40,000. The paper of the bank Is
aid to be good for Its face value. Mr.
Cuthman was one of the stockholders of
the Institution. Under this arrangement
no receiver will be appointed. The bond
la for $70,000.
The Oerman bank of Murdock was closed

bonds of this character having been ap
proved In the last five years. In the case
of the Omaha Savings bank, the stock
holders of which obligated themselves to
pay off all claims sgalnat the institution,
an extension of time was given, but In
the other casea the settlements were sat
isfactorily made within the time specified.

General Smith was found guilty of the

In which he explains the condition which

result of that order, the casualties being
confined almost wholly to the eleven na

Approved by the President.
Following Is the text of the president's
review of the case:
19C4. By the President: The flndlnss and
sentence of the court are approved. I em
wen aware or me aanger ana great aim
cuity of the task our army has had In the
Philippine Islands, and of the well-nigh
Intolerable provocations It has received
from the cruelty, treachery and total dis
regard of the rules and customs of civilised
warfare on the part ot Its foes. I also
heartily approve the employment of the
sternest measures necessary to put a stop
to sucn atrocities and to Dime tnis war
to a close. It would be culpable to show
weakness in dealing with such foes or to
fall to use all legitimate and honorable
methods to overcome them.
But the very fact that warfare Is of such
character as to afford infinite provocation
for the commission of acts of icruelty by
junior officers and the enlisted men must
make the omcers In high and responsible
positions peculiarly careful in their bearing
and conduct, so as to keep a moral check
over any acts of an Improper character by
their subordinates. Almost universally th
higher officers have so borne themselves as
to supply this necessary check, and with
but few exceptions the o (fleers and soldiers
of the army have shown wonderful kind

In the recent campaign ordered by Gen

was an act which sullied the American
name and can be but partly excused by
Major Waller's mental condition at the
time, this mental condition being due to
the fearful hardship and suffering which
he had undergone In his campaign. It
Is Impossible to tell exactly how much In

Review of Seeretaj-y Hoot.
The following Is the review of Secretary
WAR DEPARTMENT, WASHINGTON,
July 12, 1902. To the President: I trans
mit herewith the record and procefllnM
upon the trial ot Brigadier General Jacob
H. Smith by court-martial convened under
your order aateu April il, like, and now
brought before you as reviewing author-
General Smith was found guilty ot con
duct of the prejudice of good ortiVr snd
military discipline, in that he gave in
the fall of 19ul to Major L. W. T. Waller of
the marine corps, then servintr with a
battalion of marines, under his orders as
commander of the sixth separate brlgvle
in Samar the following oral Instructions:
"I want no rjrlsoners. I wish you to
kill and burn; the more you kill and burn
the better you win please me. ' And fur
ther that ne wanted all persons killed
who were capable of bearing arms and In
actual hostilities against the Untied
States, and did in reply to a Question by
Major Waller asking for an age limit des
ignate the age limit as 10 years of age.
The court sentenced him to be admon
ished by the reviewing authority, and
the court appended to the sentence th
Strong; Tails Not Meant.
"The court is thus lenient In view ot
the undisputed evidence that the accused
did not mean everytning that nis unex
plained language Implied, that his sub
ordinates did not gather such a meaning
and that the orders were never execute!
In such sense, notwithstanding that a des
perate struggle was being conduoted with
a cruel anu aavage loe.
An examination of the evidence has sat
Isfled that th conviction was Just and
that the reasona stated for the very light
sentence imposed are sustained by the
facts. General Smith in his conversation
with Major Waller was guilty of intem
perate, inconsiderate and violent expres
sions, wnicn, it accepted literally, would
f grossly violate the humane rules govern
ng American armies in the field and if
followed would have brought everlasting
disgrace on the military service of the
Vrfitui states. Fortunately they were not
taken literally nor followed. No women
or children nor non-combatants were put
to oeatn in pursuance oi mem.
Mo Bearing: on Waller' Caa.
An examination of the record and pro
ceedlngs upon the trial of Major Waller,
wnicn immeaiateijr prwfuea mai oi uen
eral Smith, shows that the Instructions
in question bore no relation to tne acts
for which Major Waller was tried and
wore not alleged oy him as Justification
for those acts. Major Waller was tried
for causing certain natives who had acted
as bearers or guides of one or nis expedi
tions to be Dut to death for treachery
without proper trial, and he defended his
action not upon the ground of any orders
received from General Smith, but upon
the ground that as commanding oflicer
he was justified by the laws of war.
Oeneral Smith's written and printed or.
ders and the actual conduct or military
operations in Samar were justified by the
history and conditions or tne warrare with
the cruel and treacherous savages who
Inhabited the Island and their entire dis
regard ot the laws of war were wholly
within the limitations of general order No.
100 of lbo3 and were sustained by prece
dents of tne nignesi aumomy.
Previous Cases Bronght Vp.
Thus In 1778 Washington ordered Gen
eral Sullivan In the campaign against the
six nations to sees and look to tne de

and self-reatraint of General Smith's sub

and judgment that his Intemperate
and unjustifiable verbal Instructions weie

upon their part and supplement their com
parative Inexperience by his wis con

In this General Smith has signally failed
and for this he has been justly convicted.
Although the sentence Imposed Is exceed
ingly light, it carries with it a condemna
tion which for an officer of his rank and
age Is really a severe punishment.
For this reason and for the farther rea
son that General Smith has served thu
country long and faithfully, has exhibited
high courage and good conduct In many
battles, has been seriously wounded In
the civil war and In the war with ftaln
and Is about concluding a long anj r.on-

not on the occasion mentioned refuse to
handle a fire alarm. For a number of years
past this company has handled all alarms
free, all that was needed was to Inform the
central office where the ,flre was located
and the alarms were turned In from this
office. Since the office of city electrician
has been declared vacant and the batteries,
etc., removed to Ore hall No. 1, It has been
found necessary to have telephone alarms
turned in direct. In case of fire those de
siring to use 'the telephone should Imme
diately ask central for No. 60, and the op
erator will plug In the number Just tt
same as for any other call. It Is true thax
phone No. 60 Is not listed In the book; In
fact, this number has not been In the book
since the "telephone company commenced the
handling of alarms, It having been left out
purposely to avoid annoyance at the fire
Appraiser Make Report.
Yesterday afternoon L. C. Gibson and
Thomas J. O'Nell, recently appointed ap
praisers for a portion of Fifteenth street,
made a report and filed It with the city
clerk. It Is desired to make a change In
the grade of that portion of Fifteenth street

would be no changes to any of the abutting
property by reason of the change of grade.
The report Is signed by only two of the ap
praisers, as J. H. Kopeits, the third mem
ber of the board, . is out of the city and
will not return for some time.

Mrs. N. K. Boasch, of
Richmond, and Her Little
Mrs. M. K. Bousch. Richmond, Vs., writes:
"I had catarrh all through my
system for two years and could get
no relief. I was advised to try Pe
runa. and I have taken Ave bottles
of it and am well and better now
than I have been for years. I can
advise any one who has catarrh of
any part of the body to take Peruna.
My little girl, who Is eleven years
old had catarrh, but was cured by
Peruna. Before I began to take
Peruna I was sick all the time, but
now I am entirely cured and all
praise Is due Peruna.." Mrs.. M. K

ot Systemic Catarrh.
Miss Pearl Bousch, writes: "When I was
a baby I contracted catarrh, and was doc
tored by several good physicians, but none
did mo any good. My mother waa taking
Peruna at the time and gave soma ot It to
me, and I soon began to Improve, and am,
now well and fat aa a little pig. I am II
years old. The doctors told mother I bad
the consumption, but tt was only catarrh."
Miss Pearl Bousch,
It is no longer a question as to whether
Peruna can be relied on to cur all such
rase. During the many years in which
Peruna has been put to the test in all forms
snd stages of acute and chronla catarrh no
one year has put this remedy to greater test
than the past year.
Peruna Is the acknowledged catarrh rem
edy ot the age. Dr. Hartman, th com
pounder of Peruna, has written a book on
the phases of catarrh peculiar to women,
entitled, "Health and Beauty." It will be
sent free to any address by The Peruna
Medicine Co.. Columbus, O.
If you do not derive prompt and satis
factory results from the use of Peruna,
write at once to Dr. Hartman giving a
full statement of your case and hs will bo
pleased to give you bis valuable advlcs
