Eczema Broke Out Also on Hands
and Limbs-Suffering Intense
Doctors Said Too Old to Be
Cured -An Old Soldier of 80
IS A BLESSING"
"At all times and to all people I am
tilling to testify to the. merits of Cu
ticura. It saved mc from worse than
the tortures of hades, about the year
1900, -ith itching on my scalp and
temples, and afterwards it commenced
to break out on my hands. Then it
broke out on my limbs. I was advised
to use salt and water, which I did, to
no effect, i I then went to a Surgeon, who
commenced treating me with a wash of
borax. This treatment did me no good,
but rather aggravated the disease. 1
then told him I would go and sen a phy
sician in trie. The reply was that I
could go anywhere, but a case of
Micnii like mine could not be cured;
that 1 was too old (80). I went to an
eminent doctor in the city of Frie and
treated with him for six months, with
like results. I had read of the Cu
ticura Remedies often. I was strongly
tempted to give them a trial, so I sent
for the Cuticura Soap, Ointment, and
Resolvent and continued taking the
Resolvent until I had taken six bottles,
stopping it to take the Pills. I was now
getting better. I took two baths a day,
and at night I let the lather nf the Soap
dry on. I used the Ointment with
great effect after washing in warm
water, to stop the itching at once. I
am now cured.
"The Cuticura treatment is a blessing
and should bo used by every one who
has itching of the skin. I can't say any
more, and thank God that He has given
the wbrld such a curative. You can
use this letter as you please. A very
much befriended man, lVm. II. Gray,

It Impossible, with due regard for the
rights of Its creditors and stockholders,

Mr. Foraker raid that It the bill Is to
become a law it should contain a court re
view provision. On that point he said In
Fortunately some of tiio most important
of the questions to which attention has
been culled cannot be withheld from the
court, but the power to review the ques
tion us to whether a rate condemned or a
rate made by the commission In a given
ch!o is reasonable Is, unfortunately, not
one of these. But between extor
tion on the one hand and confiscation on
the other there Is In most cases a con
siderable latitude within which the action
ot the commission, without special statu
tory provision for review of It by the
courts, would be llnul and conclusive.
Klklna l,aV anltcleut.
He then declared that little or no leg's-If-1
Ion Is needed and that tho Klklns law
slightly amended is Buflicient if enforced.
He pointed out that the Hepburn bill doei
not deal with rebates or prevent carriers
from engaging in other kinds of business
nnd that It does not enforce uniform classi
fication nor deal with discrimination as to j
localities. The senator staled the bill h:id j
pussed the house without amendment be- ,
cause, as the newspapers nnonunced, "the !
order had gone forth" '.hat while there 1
might be debate no amendment, no matter I
how necessary It might appear, should be
allowed. The bill came to the senate, and,
so far as the committee is concerned,
there has been a repetition ot that experi
ence, he said.
"To even suggest," lie added, "that the
bill is filled with unconstitutional provisions
or that It will prove Impracticable in op
eration is heralded as a species of treason j
and disloyalty, to whom or to what no
body knows. The whole proceeding Is
without a precedent in my experience an 1
probably in the history of the nation.. If
we are to abdicate our functions and per
mit such an imperfect. Ill-advised and ill -considered
bill to become a law discredit
will attach and disappointment will follow,
not only to those who desire such legisla
tion as thu house committee suggested,
but to ull tho people."
Objects to tritU'lama.
Mr. Foraker concluded:
It Is not either easy or agreeable to dinVr
with the president. He is tho head for
the time being, not only of the nation, but
also of the political party of which I am
proud to be a member. I believe that the
welfare of the nation Is most benellclaiiy
promoted by the supremacy of the repub
lican policies nnd on this account think
every, man who believes in the policies of
that party should do all In his power t.i
secure harmony of purpose and unity of
action among Its nicmliera with respect l-t
nutional analix. In this 'behalf he shoulj
be willing to make concession in minor
matters, but when questions arise of sucn
commanding Importance as .these it is tho
duty of every man who has an official
responsibility to discharge with respect to
them to make careful investigation and
then act In accordance with tho convictions
he may reach as a result. To the best of
hllitv 1 have done that.
I r dislike exceedingly, as every other
public man does, to be arraigned before
the country by unfriendly critics as
prompted by unworthy motives in the atti
tude assumed and to suffer In consequence
in the esteem of the people. It is far
pleasanter to go wun me ime oi puimc
xeiitlment and enjoy the Iwmeflta of har-
I monioiis relations with co-workers in the
I public service, and have the -acclaim In
I btcad of the disappropriation of constitu
j cuts, but no limn who allows himself lo
he controlled against nis juugment dv con
sideration of this character can do his
dutv or maintain his self-respect, or be
entitled to retain the respect and confidence
of his colleagues and cnnstiiuenls. If we
enact this measure and it proves disappoint
ing, as I believe it will, the people will
not hear us who say In our defense that
we legislated In response to their demands.
They expect their representatives, especially
in this body, with respect to question nf
tills characicr to act intelligently, patriot
leu II v and in accordance with thelv Judg
ment and their oath of office, which binds
lliem to disregard public clamor and legis
late for the public welfare as they see
and understand it. We owe it to our
selves, as well as our constituents, to meet
this Just expectation.
Mr. Foraker spoke for about thiee hours.
The Ohio senator wa warmly congratu
lated by many of his democratic colleagues.
Indian Hill TnUen I .
A Joint resolution for the continuance of
the present tribal government of the five
civilized tribes of Indians until next June,
offered yesterday hy Mr. Aldtich, was then
taken up. ami Mr. t'laop offered the fol-
! lowing substitute for it:
That the tribal existence and tribal rela
tions of the Choctaw, tinckasaw, Cherokee,
Cick and Heminole tribes of Indians In
Imitau Tcrrlioiy shall continue unaffected
umil all property of such tribes or the
proceeds thereof shall be distributed among
the Individual members' of said tribes.
The presentation of the substitute pro
vided lila-riil debate, which was participated
in by Messrs. C'app, Clark of Wyoming,
Jli'l'umUr, Bailey, Teller. Spooner and
Mr. Tiailey said that his especial desire
a to protect the Indians in the old rail
road land grant. He was especially averse
to placing the control of the Indian lands
In the hands of the secretary of the in
terior. Mr. tpooner pointed out a discrepancy
between the act of l3i. providing for the
settlement of the Cherokee Indiana In
Indian Territory and the patent making
the conveyance, showing that while the
act provided for the reversion of the land
to the government "in caae the Indiana
become extinct or abandon the land," the
patent provide for such reversion in case
of en Unction of the Cherokee tribe or Its
abandonment uf the land. He expressed
the opinion that congr.ns had not Intended
to deprive the Indiana ot their land except
in case uf their extinction.
Thu A Mr nil resolution was then taken

WASHINGTON. Feb. The details of
the provisions of the army appropriation
bill occupied the house throughout the dny.
Several page of the measure yet remain
to be considered.
Throughout, members of the spproprla
tlona committee, headed by Chairman Taw
ney. were In controversy with Chairman
Hull and the members of the military com
mittee. Each contest was an effort either
In the direction of reducing or restricting
the amount carried In the bill. In ome
cases the appropriations committee was
successful and In other the military com
mittee. Incidents of the day Included an unsuc
cessful effort to recogniae the heroism of
two of San Francisco's firemen who lost
their lives in the recent fire on the trans
port Meade. Mr. Kahn of California' pre
sented an amendment to pay their widows
IS.Onn each, and many member approved,
hut a point of order wa fatal to the at
tempt. Mr. Hull retracted hi former criti
cism of Minister Rnckhlll on the question of
the return of the t'nlled Slates' "share of
the Boxer Indemnity."
Provision for more than Htm rlerks em
ployed In the staff nnd at army division
headquarters went nut of the bill on a point
of order by Mr. Tawney, who developed
the fact that there was no authority of law
for their employment.
Before proceeding with the army appro
priation bill today the house passed several
hills of minor Importance by unanimous
The army bill wa then taken up. By
sustaining a point of order made by Mr.
Tawney, Chairman Boutell ruled out of
the bill a provision for appropriations fnr
practically the entire clerical force, amount
ing to more than 3H0 clerks, messengers,
watchmen, char-women, carpenters and
one gardener employed in the office of the
chief of staff and at headquarters of divi
sions and departments of the army.
The point of order was made to para
graphs nf the hill containing increases in
the clerical force, and by the ruling of
the chair not only the Increases, but the
whole force were declared to be without
authorization of law.
Chairman Hull remarked that an effort
would be madu "elsewhere." indicating the
senate, to get the appropriations replaced
in the bill.
Commenting on this action, Minority
leader Williams said the point of order had
developed the fact that there was between
JlOO.dOO and 3O0.(X) in the bill without any
authorization of law. It also revealed thcU
notwithstanding the army had been de
creased from lOfi.OOti to 57.00O men, the cler
ical force was continually increasing. He
predicted that the bill would come buck
from the senate with ail these clerks back
in it, besides others.
Mr. Williams saw cause for criticism In
the provision for n gardener. He had Just
been told he was for the million-dollar war
college with its seven students. Why
should we not provide barbers and boot
blacks for the army, he asked.
The provision In the Ujll requiring that
officers above the grade of colonel shall
serve one year In their higher rank before
retirement was amended at the suggestion
of Mr. Prince (111.), excepting retirement
for disability or where an officer has
reached the age of 64 years.
A plea for the Porto Rlcan regiment, pro
vided for In the bill, was made by Com
missioner Lnriinaga of that island.
Since his critl.ism of Minister Rockhill,
made ! the house Inst week, Mr. Hull said
lit! has been Informed by the State depart
ment that the Chinese newspaper state
ment on which it wus based hud been
denied by Mr. Rockhill. "It seems I was
mistaken." continued Mr. Hull, "and I re
gret that I made any criticism of Mr.
Rockhill on this proposition, which J admit,
while I may criticise him for many other."
Mr. Hull's criticism wus that Mr. Rockhill
In effect had offered the Chinese a bribe of
laVXO.OuO, the amount of the Boxer indem
nlty, to offset the effect of the boycott.
A tight against making the :.i0.ni ap
propriation for barracks and quarter In a
lump sum was made by Mr. Tawney, but
his amendment limiting to SiYl.OnO the ex
penditure at any one army post was de
feated after a pioiracted debate.
Mr. Wllllcms and other members criti
cised the cost f buildings for officers. He
sold tl'.'.OU) had been the cost of a band
stand at Fort Riley. Kansas.
Mr. Hull said this Included cuarters for
members of several bands.
Consideration of the bill was suspended
at S o'clock, when the house passed a reso
lution calling usin the postmaster general

his order withholding the lights and privi
lege of the mall from the People's United

Kim pi 7 Defended Hla
liralle Allen, the defendant In the murder
case before Judge Sutton, went on the
stand Wednesday afternoon and gave his
version of the shooting affair In which !ce
Jarrett was killed. Allen's story differed
In almost every essential detail from that
told by Mary Jarrett, the only other eye
Allen said on the evening of the shoot
ing he went home and had trouble with
Jarrett and the latter struck at him with a
drawn knife, knocked him down and tram
pled upon hlni, and then threatened to kill
him. Just before this happened he said hi
sister had locked the back door and Jarrett
the front door. Allen says he unlocked the
door and ran. Jarrett chasing him about
three Mock. He came tip town, bought the
revolver and went back home to get hi
thing. Jarrett wa not there when he ar
rived, but came In two or three minute
later and attacked him with the knife, with
the remark: "I told you not to he hanging
around here." To protect himself. Allen
says,, he drew the revolver with his right
hand and held Jarrett's right hand with hi
left. Jarrett grabbed the gun with hi right
hand. During the scuffle the gun was dis
charged and Jarrett ran out of the front
door. Allen rnn out of the back door. He
says Mrs. Jarrett followed hint and shot at
him three times. He say he was fright
ened because his wife was shooting at him
and gave that as his reason for running. As
he crossed the Missouri river bridge he said
he threw the gun in tha river. He did not
hear of the death of Jarrett until he was
arrested In Iowa. He said he did not know
who pulled the trigger.
.Sen file In Pantomime.
During his testimony the scuffle in which
Jarrett was killed was reproduced In panto
mime by the defendant and his attorney,
Mr. Macfarland. Mr. Macfarland took the
knife and acted the part of Jarrett. while
Allen held the gun and went through the
movements as he said they happened on the
night of the shooting. Allen also positively
denied he had gone through a mock mar
riage ceremony with Miss Jarrett and said
they had gone to living together under nn
agreement to live as man and wife until
The defense Introduced Mrs. John Tolsnn
and her daughter. Gertrude Tolson. who
told of a conversation they had had with
Miss Jarrett an hour or two after the
shooting in which she is alleged to have
said her brother threatened to kill Allen if
he disclosed Miss Jarrett's nlleged rela
tions with an uncle of her, and that tfil
was the cause of the trouble. At 5 o'clock
the defense rested and the state will begin
the rebuttal this morning. .

he can make Intelligent selection of food.
Many pure food billls have been intro
duced and some passed by state legis
latures; many have been offered to con
gress, but all thus far seem objectionable
U has seemed difficult for politician to
formulate a satisfactory bill that would
protect the ctmmon people and yet avoid
harm to honest makers and prevent end
less trouble to retailers. No government
commission or officer has the right to fix
"food standards." to define what the peo
ple shall and shnll not eat. for what agrees
with one may not agree with another, and
such act would deprive the common citizen
of his ersonal liberty. The Post tun Cereal
Co.. Ltd.. perhaps the largest makers uf
prepared food In the world, have naturally
a close knowledge of the needs of the
people and the details of the business of
the purveyors " (the retail groceri. and
guided by this experience, have prepared
a bill for submission to congress which is
Intended to accomplish the desired ends,
and. Inasmuch as a cllixen of the 1'nited
States has a right to food protection, even
when he enters another state. It la deemed
proper that the government take control
of this matter and provide a national law
t4 govern all the states. A copy of the
bill Is herewith reproduced:
Section 1 governs the maker, whether
the food is put up in small packages,
sealed, or In barrels, boxes or otherwise.
Section I governs the retailer who may
open a barrel and sell the food In small
quantities. When he put the good Into
a paper bag h mum nlo enclose a printed
copy of the statement of the maker which
was affixed to the original package, and
Inasmuch as the retailer cannot undertake
to guarantee the statement of Ingredient
he must publish the statement of the mak
er and add hi own name and address as
a guaranty of his selling the food a It Is
represented to him. which relieves the ie
taller of responsibility of the truth of the
statenv nt and throws It upon the maker,
where it properly belongs.
The remaining section explain them
selves. The Postuni Cereal Co.. Ltd., for ex
ample, ha from the beginning of Its
existence printed on the outside of each
and every package of Poatum and Grape
Nuts food a truthful and exact statement
of what the contents were made of in order
that the consumer might know precisely
what he or she was eating. A person de
siring to buy, for instance, strictly pure
fruit Jelly and willing to nay the price has
a right to expect not only an equivalent
f4r tb coat, but a further right to a cer
tainty aa to what he eats. Or he may be
willing to buy at less coat a jelly made
part of fruit Juices, sugar and a portion
of glucose- But he must b supplied with

and forced the legislation. VThe law should
