"About two years ago, after suffering
for nearly two years from rheumatic
gout, being able to walk only with great
discomfort, "arid having tried various
remedies, including mineral waters,
without relief, I saw by an advertise
ment in a Chicago paper that a man had
been relieved of this distressing com
plaint, after long suffering, by taking
Ayer's Barsaparifla. I then decided to
make a trial ot this medicine, and took
it regularly for eight months, and am
pleased to state that it has effected a
complete cure. I have since had no re
turn of the disease." Mrs. K. Irving

Psvaral Amendments Matte to the lleas
nr ConEretimnn ltelden'fl Flary At
tack on Chicago's FlnanclAt Hacking.
Not a Dollar Shown Thus Fur, Its Said.
WAsniNOTON, March SKI. In tho house Mr.
Candler (Mass.) called up tho World's fair
bill. The bill was read and Mr. Candler, In
behalf of the conimltteo, offered on amend
ment providing that the commission shall
appoint a board of lady mnnngers, of such
number and to perform such duties as may
be prescribed by the commission, rind the
board may appoint one or more members of
all committees authorised to award prizes
for exhibits which may be produced In whole
or In part by femalo labor. Adopted, An
amendment providing that one of the mem
ber of the board created to be charged with
tho selection of the government exhibit
shall be chosen by the fish commission was
also adopted.
Mr. Candler's Spee-ch.
Mr. Candler expressed the satisfaction
which ho felt in being able to state that
Chicago, which had been selected by the
house as a site, had proved itself bofore the
committoe equal to all that had been ex
pected of it. The committee was satisfied
that Chicago had raised abonafldesubscrip
tlon of $3,000,000, and was also satisfied that
Chicago had done more than had been ex.
pected front any competing city in agreeing
that the subscription should bo raised to
110,000,000, In order to meot tho conserva
tive element which did not favor the hold
ing of a fair tho bill provided that the
f .resident should not Issue his proclamation
nvlting foreign nations until he was satisfied
that the contribution was a bona fldo one.
To Open Slay 1, 1803.
Mr. Candler then offered an amendment
on his individual motion, to be considered
as pending, providing for the dedication of
the buildings of the World's fair with ap
propriate ceremonies Oct. 18, 1892; nnd
further providing that tho exposition shall
be open to visitors not later than May 1,
1893, and shall olose not later than Oct. SO,
1893. lie said that this postponement was
not asked by Chicago, but he thought It
would inure to the benefit of the exhibitors
who were to take part in the exposition.
Mr. Hslden's Warm Attack.
Mr. Belden (N. Y.) said th&t New York
had accepted tho decision of the house in
regard to the location of the World's fair
in good faith, but that did not prevent
bor representatives insisting that there
should be Incorporated in this bill safe
guards that would secure that success in
Chicago which New York hod expected to
. After the site had been selected, the Il
linois members of the special committee
were asked by the members from New York
for the guarantee they had promised, and
lo and behold they produced a paper marked
"exhibit A." Tho first name on it was E. Bt.
John, and the amount mentioned (389,000.
Mr. Springer had told him that the amount
had been promised at a meeting of railroad
men. They had not yet subscribed. That
was the way that subscription started out.
Exhibit B, with more names, promised a
subscription of (1114,000. On the back was a
memorandum without a name on it promis
ing 1864,000. In regard to this memorandum
he had been told that the subscription book
was too bulky to bring to Washington.
Not a dollar of subscription had been shown
nor a single security ottered.
Some Guarantee Should lie Shown.
Mr. Belden prooeeded to argue that befpre
the bill passed Chicago should be compelled
to show some guarantee that the subscrip
tions could be raised. Ho claimed that he
was a better friend of a successful fair by
Insisting on provisions to secure it than the
men who stood in the houso and said: "We
will Ox it up bye and bye," and he gave no
tice that at the proper timo he would move
to recommit the bill, with instructions to re
port it back when a guarantee ot $10,000,000
shall be secured by the citizens of Chicago.
Mr. Chandler's amendment postponing tho
fair until 1893 was adopted without division.
Mr. Cummlngs for Chicago,
Mr. Cummlngs (N. Y.) said some months
ago he appealed iu the house for fair play
towards New York, and now he appealed
to the house for fair play towards Chicago.
New York had fair play in the houso, but
lost the fair through treachery in her own
ranks. There was a Benedict Arnold in
New York. He closed by saying that he
believed he would honor himself, his city.
his state and his eouutry by stand lag by
Chioago and doing all he could to mako the
fair a success. Mr. Flower (N. Y.) favored
recommitting the bill and make Chicago
show her subscription list. Mr. Belden
then offered bis motion to recommit, but it
was defeated without a division. The bill
was then passed yeas, 02; nays, 49.
Governor Hill's Communication News
from Albany.
Albany, March 20. Governor Hill has
sent to the legislature a communication, in
which he commends the objects which tho
Baxtou ballot reform bill professes to ac
complish, but expresses his belief that the

It In its present condition. He recommends
that a joint resolution be passed by the leg
islature respectfully requesting the court of
appeals (.first and second divisions) to con.
veue at their earliest possible convenience

and expressing their opinions informally as
to the constitutionality of tho provisions
The governor Intimates that he will ap
prove the bill if the court ot appeals declares
it constitutional
The senate and assembly both sent tho

Island favored the bill with the exception
of eight men, who by their nets were do.
stroying the llthlng iu Jamaica bay. The
newspapers of the state also favored the bill.
Mr. Hawkins denied that the flsh oaught
in Jamaica bay were used as fertilizers.
The bill was for a few against many rich
against poor. Fish is a natural food of meu,
and tho ca'ch should not bo regulated In
the proposed manner. Nets are not set for
menhaden in Jamaica bay. He spoke long
and earnestly on the matter. '

Condensed Itefort of Proceedings In the
Senate and ltonse.
Wabhinoton, March 20. In the senate
the Illnlr educational bill was defeated by a
vote of 37 to 81, Mr. Dlalr changed his vote
to tho negative In order to move a reconsid
eration. The house by a vote ot 15S to 14S declared
Mr. Conipton not entitled to his Boat.
WAsniNOTON, March 24. In tho senate
several petitions from Massachusetts and
Missouri wero presented protesting ngnlust
tho ratification of the extradition treaty
with Russia. The report on the Montana
senatorial case were presented. The bill to
dcclaro unlawful trusts nnd combination!
in restraint of trade nnd production was
taken. Mr. Turple nnd Mr. 1'tigh spoks
briefly In support of tho bill. The amend
ment offered by Mr. Itengan his nntl-trust
bill was the first question to lio voted on.
Mr. Georgo regarded tho amendment os he
did the bill, as utterly without warrant tn
the constitution, but thought the amend
ment more elllcient than the bill and would
vote for it.
Mr. Teller said ho was In full sympathy
with the objects of the bill, but he said It
would apply to the Farmers' alliance and
the National Farmers' league, which were
organized with the avowed purpose of In
creasing the prices of farm produce 0 thing
which he regorded as most desirable and at
alaolutoly essential to tho prosperity of ths
country, for everybody knew that unlesi
tho prices of farm products in this country
could bo increased, a groat many of the
farmers would soon be in bankruptcy nnd
turned out of their homes. Mr. George re
ferred to tho Knights of Labor as nnother
organization that would como within tho
scope of the bill, because tho object of that
order was to Increase their wages and con
sequently to Increase tho cost of production.
Mr. Heagau thought the first necessity wns
to strike down trusts and combinations
which gave life to Knights of Labor nnd
trade unions. Mr. Hoar criticized tho bill
in some of its legal aspects, nnd claimed
that it fulled to ntrord any adequate remedy.
Mr. Sherman replying to Mr. Hoar, said
that if the duty on cotton cloths or woolen
cloths was a llttlo too low to protect ths
manufacturers of Massachusetts, not a
month or a day would bo allowed to pass
before he (Mr. Hoar) would demand a
remedy In the wny of raising the duty.
Here was a remedy for a greater wrong
than any that result from a low tariff.
State courts had been endeavoring to
wrestle with combinations. He instanced
the sugar trust composed of seventeen cor
porations, nnd asked what remedy had the
people of New York against that combina
tion. None at all, he said, except against
one ot tho corporations Included in It. A
remedy would never come, ho said, from the
class of men engaged in such monopolies.
He had seon the gradual growth of com
binations and knew that their power wni
growing greater and creator and stronger
and stronger. Aud if congress was impo
tent to deal with that evil, if it could not
prescribe nnythlng but quack medicine, it
would prove itself utterly unfitted to por
form its duties. Tho bill wont ovsr.
Wasiii.voton, March 25. Tho senate
passed tho bill providing for a sjiecial inves
tlgation of tho seal Industry of Alaska. The
Bherman anti-trust bill was then takon up,
end Mr. George made n speech in opposition
to It on constitutional grounds. He said
that the amendment offered by Mr. Ingnlls
would meet with tho approbation of every
senator but for the fact that the constitution
prohibited the senate originating a tax
measure. He moved that the bill be referred
to the judiciary committee. Tho debate was
continued at some length. The motion to
refer was finally beaten yeas, 15; nays, 28.
An amendment proposed by Mr. Reagan was
agreed to yeas, 34; nays, 13.
Mr. Sherman moved to amend the first
section by adding to it the following proviso,
which had been suggested by Mr. Georges
"I'ivlded that this act shall not bo con
strued to apply to any arrangement, agree
ment or combination between laborers, made
with a vlow to lessening the number of
hours of their Ialrar or of Increasing their
wages, nor to any arrangement, agreement,
association or combination among persons
engaged iu horticulture or agriculture, mode
with a view of enhancing the price of their
own agricultural or horticultural products."
Tho amendment was agreed to. Mr. Ingnlls'
amendment, aiming at dealings in futures
and options, was agreed to. Mr. Coko then
offored his amendment, consisting of eight
new sections, to tho bill, and made a speech
(n support of it. He argued that the bills of
Mr. Sherman and Mr. Ilea gnu were uncon
stltutlonal and vague "wasps without a
Mr. Iloagan's amendment makes it unlaw
ful to create or carry out any restrictions
In trade; to limit production or to increase
or reduce the price of merchandise or com
modities; to prevent competition In mer

by which thoy shall settle tho price of such
article so as to preclude unrestricted com

of the bill except tho amendment of Mr. In
galls or his own. Tabled yeas, 215; nays, 10,

New Yoim, March 20. The grand Jury
came into part 1, general sessions, at 11:50
o'clock, and handed a long presentment to
Judge Fitzgerald. In it the sheriff's office
s characterised as a disgrace to the city
and a shame to civilization. The present
ment states that It finds that the sheriff of
New York county, after paying all expenses
as to suits and other matters, has au income
ot more than 150,000 a year. It declares
that the sheriff's office Is and has been cor
rupt; that for the purpose of gaining some
advantage inconsistent with official honesty
the rights ot others have beeu sacrificed
and the sheriff's office has been prostituted.
The conduct of the sheriffs office has been
mercenary, slovenly and wholly Indecent,
and the jury recommend that the legisla
ture make the office a salaried one, with a
salary suitable to it and to it high responsi
bilities. A Package for Luokless llenwell,
