THE PITTSBUKG DISPATCH, MONDAT, MAT
HOPEFUL ONCE MOEE.
The Army of Office Seekers Confident
of Soon Being Satisfied.
SOMETHING MUST HAPPEN SOON,
Despite the Fact That Harrison is Fright
fully Slow and Has
MADE TflEM VERT ANGRY AT HIM.
Pennsylvania's CoaHant Waiting for Quay to Get
Hope springs again in the breasts of the
office seekers who are jetting so angry at
President Harrison for his slowness in turn
ing out Democratic officeholders. They
think some important appointments are sure
to be made this week, now that the Cen
tennial jamboree, is over. Pennsylvanians
are among the anxious ones,
ErXCUI. TZLIGRAM TO TBS DISPATCH. J
"Washington, May 5. Execrations on
the President for the extraordinary slowness
of his movements in the appointment of Re
publicans to office have been lond and con
tinned for the last 24 honrs, or since the
close of the week with so more important
appointments than his own brother and his
lriend Alexander. But hope seems ta spring
eternal in the breast of the office seeker, and
this evening the crowds in the hotels appear
to have almost forgotten the disappoint
ments of the week, show an inclination to
pardon the President on account of the
fatigue necessarily attendant on his Cen
tennial trip, and are canvassing with in
terest the probabilities of a good lot of an
nouncements for the week now begun,
THAT IS EXPECTED THIS WEEK.
There seems to be a conviction that a
Puolic Printer, a Chief of the Bureau of
Engraving and Printing, two District Com
missioners and possibly two Civil Service
Commissioner will be appointed, It ap
pears to be a prettv general conviction that
Palmer, of Chicago, will get the Public
Printer plum, and Meredith, as everybody
thinks, has had the Bureau of Engraving
and Printing in his possession, figuratively
speaking, for several weeks. Meredith is
another personal friend ot the President to
be well placed, and if Palmer be appointed
his selection will be dne to his close friend
ship with Halford, the President's Private
It is generally agreed that no former ad
ministration has shown so strong a disposi
tion to take care of its personal friends and
relatives in the first month of its existence.
MENTIONED FOB PBEFEEMENT.
For Commissioners of the District, to suc
ceed Webb and "Wheatly, no one seems to
have any knowledge of the identity of Mr.
Harrison's selections. The District govern
ment was never in a much worse condition
of demoralization, and there is a general
hope that first-class business men will be
appointed, but past experience invites de
spair rather than hope. For the Demo
cratic appointment, "William Dickson, a
local leader, popular with both Democrats
and Republicans, is the most conspicuous.
For the Bepublican succession there is a
legion of candidates. The most recent is ex
Congressman Hazleton, of Wisconsin, -who,
after the expiratiou of the Forty-eighth
Congress, remained in Washington as a
.lobbyist. Not being successful asa member
f ofthe "third House," he wants to be Com
' missloner, and claims 100 Representatives
and 30 Senators as his backers.
Notwithstanding the beginning of active
work by the Civil Service Commission, with
more than can be done demanding attention,
Jfr. Lyman is yet the entire commission.
The crowding ot work, probably, has caused
the report that two commissioners will be
appointed this week, hut no one has a guess
to hazard as to who they will be. ,
PENNSYLVANIA NOT IN LINE.
Any number ot candidates for govern
mental positions from other States declare
they have been promised appointments this
week, but none of these are from Pennsyl
vania. In the beginning everybody ex
pected to see the appointments for the Key
stone State railroaded through at limited
express speed, but there seems to have been
a striki and a tie-np of some kind, not ex
actly apparent. Senator Cameron has aban
doned the whol business, in which he never
evinoed more than a very indifferent inter
est, and Quay has been generally reported
to be sulking in a rural tent, somewhere
west ot Harrisburg. Bayne is the only one
of the new managerial triumvirates left on
the scene of action, and rather as a sentinel
than as a warrior battling for appointments.
Not a whisper can be heard anywhere of
possible Pennsylvania appointments, of any
importance, in the near future.

This is the case with the Bad River Indians

UiBj nod Neuralgia by Laiing op qf
Bunds Strange Effect TJp
ISPECIAL TELEGRAM TO THX DlBFlTCn.l
Beavbb Tails, May K. In. the little
hamlet of Fetterman.a suburb of this place,
lives a family named Texter, the father and
daughter of which possess the remark
able gift or faculty of curing the
most obstinate cases of rheumatism,
neuralgia and kindred pains by the
laying on of hands. For years the old gen
tleman, Mr, Bobert Texter, has exercised
his peculiar gift, and hundreds in this
neighborhood will voluntarily testify to the
remarkable cures he has performed. When
the patient is brought into his presence
he utters not a word, asks no questions
nor will he allow the afflicted to speak, He
then advances, blows gently upon the face
of the patient, rnbs the afflicted parts
gentlv, and almost instantaneously the pain
disap'pears. As a rule but one visitation is
needed and the cure is permanent. In some
cases, though, two or more applications are
necessary. He has never been known to
fail in effecting a cure.
What is remarkable is that after the
treatment is accorded the patient, Mr.
Texter is completely prostrated and suffers
for sometime the same pains that he or she
whom he has relieved was suffering with.
It is on acconnt of this prostration that Mr.
Texter, who is now quite old, has given up
the practice of his peculiar gift, yet he has
transmitted it to his daughter, Mrs. William
Patterson, the wife of a very respectable
workmgman employed at the Hartmau
Manufacturing Company's works, and she
practices it with the same degree of success
that her lather did.
Scores of remarkable cures are related,
and all from persons of the highest respect
ability and undoubted veracity. Both
families are honest working people and do
not seek notoriety. What is more, they
will not take any money for their cures.
Mr. Texter has a large family of sons and
daughters, but to one only, Mrs. Patterson,
did he transmit his wonderful powers.

election and Citizen Harrison visited his dis

cian, AT 602 PENN AVENUB.
Mrs. Bobert Dunlap, who resides at Hosat

began to suffer from constipation, which was
accompanied by pain in tha small of tba back,
which extended to the head and eyes, fjhe
complained of a pain In the eyeballs which
was aggravated by moving the eye. When
ever she was obliged to be on her feet for any
length of time she was tormented with a drag
ging sensation throngh her hips and most dis
tressing pin in the lower part of the bowels.
Six months from the beginning of her snffer
ings she began to be annoyed with piles. At
each morement of the bowels pile tumors came)
down which bad to be replaced. As the months
and years went by her sufferings increased un
til life became a burden to her. She had en
hansted the Bkill of several physicians and bad
become thoroughly discouraged. She suffered;
SeTsrely from hemorrhage of the bowels, which
was almost a daily occurrence. Mrs. Sunlap bet
came extremely nervous, an the oread and
fear of the suffering that v & knew she mnst
pass through dally constantly haunted her.
Added to the terrible suffering produced by
the piles was Jthe torture caused by displace
ment of the womb, which doubly increased her
agonyt she had great pain on top, throngh tha
fore part of the bead, attended by a bearing
down sensation, with pain throngh the llmba
and bacx, accompanied by a general lassitude)
or weakness. About six weeks ago she saw a
notice In one of the daily papers of the re
markable cures that are being made by Dr.
Smith, the magnetic physician at 02 Penn ave
nne, and decided to consult him. She did so
and began treatment at once, and toIay Mrs,
Dunlap is enjoying good health. She was en
tirely cured of piles and of female weakness 1
