"My parent conaidered coffee simply a
harmless beverage for old and young, so
when s inert, baby I commenced to drink
it, and when I reached womanhood, found
myself troubled with nervousness, head
ache and an irritable temper and to obtain
relief, I drask more and more coffee, thus
adding fuel o. the fir.
"I grew worse until lire waa one. black
night of pan. My nerves were shattered,
body wrecked. with suffering, my stomach
gave out and. utterly refused to dtgeat the
moat simple . foods, and finally I lay tor
weeks starring and longing for food, but
unable to eat! more than Just enough to

"While in this state, my next door neigh
bor brought 'in a fragrant clip that I sup
posed waa some new grade of coffee and
although I had suffered so terribly from Its
effects, the temptation waa too etrxjng' to

it had a rlh agreeable taste and I drank
it without distress. She repeated the kind

"I began to? congratulate myaelf that It

Toward the close of yesterday after
noon, F. A. Nash appeared before the board
to ahow cause why the assessment of tba
New Omaha Thomson-Houston Electrlo
company sHould not stsnd aa raised by the
tax. commissioner, from. $442,000, aa re
turned by the cpmpany,' to 1500.000. Mr.
Nash said that apparently Ihe board had
a wrong Impression of the value of the
company's property, and a Tar as be could
see this must be due- to a-false estimate of
the new subway as an addition to the
plant. He pointed out to the board the
fact that thla new underground system,
white not adding to the earning power of
the plant In any respeutj did oonvert Into
mere Junk a great quantity ef wires and
poles and transformers and other mate
rial that formerly had had a 'Utilitarian
value. This condition, ha said, would -naturally
detract from tha Inventory valua
tion, of the property, of the company. Mr.
Nash alao elated that not long ago experts
from the east, who casoe (or the purpose
of placing a purchase value upon the prop
erty of the company, bad ' appraised the
entire Omaha equipment at $416,000. Mr.
Nash was requested In case be decided to
open the question to furnish figures ss to
the earnings and expensea of the Omaha
plant, and also the entire property sepa
rately, as he said be was ready to do. It
was found In the discussion between Mr.
Nash and the board that $300,000, of the
company's bonds had been, omitted In
making the return, and the board held
that these should be Included, while Mr.
Nash argued that - they should not. While
Mr. Nash suggested a compromise on $476.
000, this proposition was rejected and he
was advised first to Inquire Into the ques
tion of law.
Homo Changes Made,
In the course of the Afternoon the assess
ment of the Chicago Lumber company was
Increased from $68,000 to $86,245 and that
of the Sol Bergman Jewelry company re
duced from $10,000 .to $6,000; and numer
ous minor changes made.
Among the firms to appear before the
board was J. I Brandels st Sons, but no
disposition waa made of that case. Mr.
Emll Brandels spent some time In discus
sion with the board aa to the value of bis
firm's building and the lease ot the groutd
upon which It stands and also the value
ot the atock, but the board reserved Its

Nine to Vote Aftalaat Math
Debated Proposition. '
WASHINGTON. Dec. 9 After debating
the London dock charges .bill for almost
four hours the bouse today threw It out by
rejecting the enacting clause. Tbe debate
was spirited On both aides and alt day
members were flooded with telegrams re
specting the bill.
The withdrawal of the support of the
lumber and meat packing Interests, which
originally Joined with the millers In press
ing the measure, brought about its defeat.
The final vote was 138 td 129 In favor
of the motion to strike out the enacting
clause. Speeches were made In favor of
the bill by Mr. Tswney (Minn.) and Mr.
Richardson (Ala.), and against It by
Messrs. Adameon (Oa), Wagner, Adams
and Dalsell ' (Pa.), Burleson and Burgess
(Tex.) and Mann (111.).

Some minor , business waa transacted at
the opening of the session. The senate bill
to regulate the duties and fix the compen
sation ot customs inspectors at the port ot
New York was passed. Also a. bill to pro

Mr. , Payne (N. T.), chairman of the
committee on ways and means, reported
back from that committee tbe resolution
for distribution ot the president's message
and gave notice that he would call It up to
morrow. He also called up the resolution
ordering for a holiday adjournment from
December 20 to January 6, which was
adopted wltbout division.
Mr. Sherman (N. T.) reported tbe
Indian appropriation bill. Mr. Tawney
(Minn.) then demanded ' the regular
order, the London landing charge bill, of
which he had charge. He gave notice
that be would move to substitute the sen
ate bill for the pending house bill, the two
being practically identical.
Mr. Tawney then began his argument In
support ot the bill. He read a petition
from the big packing houses favoring the
bill and Mr. Mann (111.) said be had tele
grams from all those bouses withdrawing
Want Divers Things.
'The gentlemen may have such tele
grams," replied Mr. Tawney, "just as hs
may bold telegrams from tbe export lum
ber association, which last week withdrew
its support. I have In my possession tele
grama from the officers of that association
first withdrawing, then denying their with
drawal and later again withdrawing and
later still a confidential letter explaining
their motives for their action. I propose
to disclose those motives , before I ' con
clude." Proceeding, Mr.- Tawney explained tbe
purpose of the bill, which, be said, ap
plied only to the port of London and was
simply designed to relieve the American
shipper of tha charge made by the trans
porting companies for delivering goods
over tba: side of tbe vessel. This charge,
he said, waa Included In the contract ot

ground that .tt,.soughf,ta. . prevent the lib

said,,. If,. waa suppnpted principally by a
single interest, the millers.
Mr. .."Warner (Pa.) '.ajso, opposed. He
contended that It be .interests of American
shippers aa a whole had been served by
the "London, clause."' Tbe purpose and ef
fect ot that clause, bo maintained, had
been to give the' American shippers priv
ileges they could not. otherwise have ob
tained. Mr. Tawney finally moved to substitute
tbe senate amendment for tba house; bUT.
Thereupon Mr." Sherman'' (N. ' T.) moved
to strike out the enacting clauae and the
Issue was precipitated at once. Mr.
Tfcwney demanded the ayes and noes. The
vote resulted, 138 ayes to 129 noes. This
action struck out tbe enacting clause and
killed the bill. At 4:20 the house ad

WASHINGTON, )ec. 9. The aenate do
voted most' of today to the Immigration bill
and adopted a number . of amendments
Considerable diacussion ensued on an
amendment offered by Mr. Burton (Kan.)
to admit Chineae laborers to Hawaii. It
met with much opposition and was finally
laid on the table. The clauae. prohibiting
the sale of liquor in tbe capitol caused
some criticism, but passed. During the
day the militia bill' was discussed.' It will
be taken up again on Thursday.
Mr. Kean (N. J.) gave notice that on
December 17 he would ask the senate to
consider resolutions upon the life and
character of the late Senator William J
- The militia bill was called first and
an amendment offered by Mr. Cockrell
(Mo.) was adopted to prevent future con
troversies . between the etatea and tbe
United States as to when a man, may be
cofne United States soldier.
Mr. Lodge (Mass.) then called up the
Immigration bill and explained that yes
tsrday'a amendment changing the designs
tlon of Incomers from "passengers" to
"alien Immlgranta" rendered It necessary
to strike out the exemption applying to
citlsena of . tbe Dominion of Canada, tbe
republics' ot Cuba and Mexico, or a bon
fide resident ot the Dominion or republics,
n& an amendment to that effect was
An amendment by Mr. McCumber (N. D.)
was adopted Including professional' beggars
as among those excluded from admission
to tba United States.
At the Instance ot Mr. Psnrose (Pa.) It
Was agreed to substitute for ths section
extending to two years the time, for ex
porting aliens who become a publio charge.
The section aa amended specifies lunacy,
Idiocy and epilepsy and says aliens af
flicted with these troubles shall pe pre
sumed to bavo been ao affected prior to
landing abd aball he deported at the ex
pense 'of ths transportation companies
bringing them In.
Mr. Burton (Kan.) said the Porto Rlcans
tsken to Hawaii had failed, but the . Por
tuguese did very well. White men could
not work In tbe Hawaiian climate. He
thou-ht th Chinese, should be allowed In
Hawaii for-agricultural purposes only.
Mr. Bailey (Tex.) objected to ths, propo.
sitloo to invite Chinese to Hawaii and then
deport them when they become skilled
Mr. Burton pleaded for the consideration
pf the amendment by tbe committee on
immigration; but Mr. Penrose declined, as
ba said the amendment was premature and
pot germrne. He i.-.cved that tbe amend
ment ta latd oa ths tsble.
Ths tuoiicn waa adopted.

Gentlemen: It Is with great pleasure
that I write to Inform you that I have
used eight bottles of your Pure Malt
Whiskey. I would not have been here to
day only for your wonderful medicine. I
have- used all kinds of medicine and been
under the care of doctors. I have had
three severe attacks of grip and pneumonia,
which have left me with a bad cough and
weak heart. I am 67 years old. It has
toned up my system and stopped the
hemorrhages and I cough but very little.
I only regret that I did not know of your
whiskey before..! cannot express what
It baa done for me. I. beg to remain. Yours
respectfully, MRS. H. C. ALLINGTON.

NEW YORK, Dec. I. With the thermom-.

weather ot the winter thus far prevailed
today. On Staten- Island (he body of John
Stallenwarf, a blackamith, was found In
tbe roadway. He bad apparently been
frozen to death.
There was much sufforing, especially
among the poor, because of the scarcity
and high price of coal.
At tbe meeting ot tbe board ot aldermen
a resolution was unanimously adopted ask
ing tbe Board of Estimates and Apportion
ment to authorize an Issue ot reserve bond
to the amount of $100,000 to purchase an
thracite to be distributed free to the poor
during the winter. ' ' '
Perhaps never In the history of the re
tall coal trade In this city baVe deslers
had to face such a situation as confronted
them today. In very " office 1 there Were
numbers of anxious buyer and at the
same time eager Inquiries for coal were
conatantly Coming by telephone. To all
but a few the dealera were forced to turn
a deaf ear.
"We can't promise you more than one
ton and we may not be able to deliver that
for a day or two,' waa tbe stereotyped
reply to all demands for fuel. '
Tbe situation was admitted to be ex
tremely bad and, according to on dealer,
there appear to be no way of relieving it.
A tour , of the East side 'today revealed
the fact that there Is much , suffering
among the poor. Tbe operators , bav
ceased to send coal to be sold by tbe pall
and th tenement dwellers find It difficult
to get fuel.
The Salvation army also reports wide
