The government of Columbia. S. A.,
suddenly agreed to the Canal treaty,
last week and it was signed by her
representative in Washington, and sent
to the Senate for confirmation-
The instrument provides for the pay
ment of $10,000,000 and for a rent, to
begin after the expiration of nine years
ot|Sr.o.ooo yearly. Colombia wanted
#6."W,000. These terms, are liberal but
not Extravagant. The country under
the treaty will not be paying more for
the concession than, all things consider
ed, it is worth. The proposition ac
cepted by Colombia is that of the
United States, with the exception of
the rental, which is a comprcmise
The treaty should be ratified at once
and work begun, but like the Immigra
tion and other bills and the Cuban
treaty it may be held up by the contest
over the bill admitting New Mexico
and Arizona as States, which is being
championed by Senator Quay, and
which is fayored by a few Republicans
and by all the Democrats of the Sen
The bill, however, is such undesirable
legislatien on account of the sparseness
of the population of the vast sand-banks
and their mixed nationality and char
acter, that the majority of the Republi
cans of the Senate are sturdily opposing
it, and under the roles, or absence of
rules, the debate cannot be curtailed,
and may continue to the end of the reg
ular session, March -Ith, and necessitate
the calling of an extra session for the
consideration of the treaties.
One theory for Quay's course in the
premises is that he is deliberately delay
ing action on the Trust, Immigration and
some other bills that are obnoxious to
some of the great corporations, and an
other is that his entire effort is to se
cure a seat in the Senate for ex-State
Senator Andrews of Crawford county,
who has located in New Mexico, but be
the reason what it may, the humbug
gery in the U. S. Senate is gradually
becoming more and more apparent to
the people of the Nation.
What a change in the personel of this
Senate, the election of its members by
the popular vote would make!
Nineteen-thousand freight cars were
moved in the Pittsburg district last
Snnday, and still all the railroads are
more or less clogged, notwithstanding
the general dullness of business.
The manufactories are busy and
eyery transportation line is taxed to its
utmost. Prices are being maintained,
railway earnings are increasing, and if
there were enough coal and cars and
locomotives commercial conditions
would be unparalleled. The Penn'a.
Co. is making ready for tremendous im
provements, and the easiness of the
money market is shown by the fact
it had no trouble borrowing $35,000,000
at 4| per cent.
The bombardment of For Sant Carlos,
at the entrance to Lake Maracaibo,
Venezuela, by the Germans, last week,
was surprise as all thought the Ger
mans would refrain from any violence,
pending the arbitration Bombarding
the fort was within Germany's right as
a belligerant, but yet it is regrettable,
and indicates a defiant spirit.
Mr. Littlefield's anti-trust bill, intro
duced in the House, last Thursday,
cover a all the suggestions mady by At
torney General Knox to secure full
publicity, to prohibit rebates, discrimi
nations, unfair methods in the creation
of monopoly and false capitalization.
The interstate commerce commission 5s
made the intermediary through which
information concerning the big corpora
tions will reach the public, and ma
chinery is provided to enable the com
mission to keep abreast of the times in
pursuing its inquiries. The penalty
provided for making false return is that
imposed for perjury by the revised
statutes. The penalty for refusal to
make returns called for is exclusion
from interstate commerce. The penal
ties for violation of other provisions are
fines, in most cases the minimum
amounts being placed at SSOO or sl,ooo'
the maximum being in the discretion ot
the court. Carriers are prohibited from
transporting the productions, or the
materials necersary for the productions
of corporations or individuals who aie
violating the provisions of the act, and
are subject to penalties similar to those
imposed upon the manufacturing corpo
rations for yiolations of the mandate.
On Monday the Senate confirmed
Lilly Watters as P. M. at Evans City,
and A. W. Christy as P. M. at Slippery
Rock. .
Postmaster Black of Butler visited
the Department at Washington last
week, and asked for more Carriers for
Congressman Sbowalter secured the
discharge of Lester Cross of Harrisville,
who is now in the Hospital at San
Francisco, from the army.
THE Colney Hatch asylum near
London, England, was burned last
Tuesday, and fifty crazy people perish
ed in the fire.
McDonald on Insanity.
A dispatch from Washington D. C.
dated last week, stated that "a large
number of Presbyterians in Western
Pennsylvania appear to be taking a deep
interest in the scientific writings of Dr.
Arthur McDonald, the scientist, who
declared that authomobiles contribute
very largely to the cause for the increase
of insanity and other forms of abnorm
Reprefentative Acheson received peti
tions from the Presbyteries of Redstone
and Butler asking that the Government
print, as a Government document sever
al thousand copies of Dr. McDonald's
book on the "Experimental Study of
Children. " Mr. Acheson heeded the re
quest of the petitioners by offering a
resolution asking that 15,000 copies of
the book be printed.
If the resolution ever comes before
the House it will probably be over
whelmingly defeated because of the
doctor's way of studying neurotics.
Some years ago he inserted advertise
ments in the newspapers asking for cor
respondence, "object matrimony." Ho
took the letters of the weak-minded
persons of both sexes and wrote a book
on the subject. Scientific men and
newspapers criticised the method vigor
ously. They claimed that the methods
were unscientific and that the deduc
tions the doctor made were of absolute
ly no scientific value.
The scientists employed by the Gov
eminent speak sneeringly of the report l
he made to Congress about the causes of
abnormalities, and the Bureau of Edn
cation objects to having him connected
any longer with that bureau.
Ou Wednesday of last week, the two
houses of the Legislature met in joint
session anil declared Boise Penrose
elected to succeed himself as U. S.
Senator from this State for another
term of six-years.
Gov. Pennypacker sent in his Cabinet
appointments and they were bunched
with a lot of Notary appointments and
all confirmed, unanimously, by the
forty-five Senators present. No nomi
nations were presented for the positions
of insurance or banking commissioner
Gov. Pennypacker said there are no
vacancies in the offices, he not having
received the resignations of either In
surance Commissioner Dm ham or Bank
ing Commissioner Reeder. Gen. Reed
er is ready to resign at the convenience
of the governor and Mr. Durham was
slated to succeed himself, provided he
will accept a reappointment.
As constructed, the cabinet personnel
is: Attorney general, Hampton L. Car
son of Philadelphia: secretary of the
commonwealth, Frank M. Fuller of
Fas*ette: adjutant general, Thomas J.
Stewart of Montgomery: superintendent
of public grounds and buildings, James
M, Shumaker of Cambria.
T. Larry Eyre, superintendent of
public grounds and buildings under
Gov. Stone, did not resign. Gov.
Pennypacker's message announcing the
appointment of Mr. Shumaker named
him as the successor of T. L. Eyre, "re
moved " The word "removed" caused
some stir in the senate for the reason
that it was not necessary that it be in
corporated, the naming of Mr. Shumak
er creating and filling the vacancy.
Mr. Eyre was present in the Senate at
the time. He smiled pleasantly as he
was officially deposed, remarking that
it was one of those exigencies which
must be looked for by those in political
Frank M. Fuller, the new secretary of
the commonwealth, assumed office at
once. He reappointed Lewis E. Beitler
his deputy secretary and informed
Chief Clerk Thom that there would be
no changes for the present, if at all, in
the clerical force. Mr. Fuller was suf
fering from a bad cold and as soon as
he had giyen the necessary instructions
to bis force had a brief conference with
the governor, and then left for his home
where he was taken down by pneumonia.
Hampton L. Carson, the new attorney
general, did not come up from Philadel
phia that day bnt appeared next. Sup
erintendent of Public Grounds and
Buildings Shumaker assumed his new
duties at once. Adjt. Gen. Stewart,
who succeeds himself, will continue to
preserve the peace of the common
wealth without personal inconvenience.
He will make some changes in his staff,
it is said, the most important, from a
Pittsburg standpoint, being the promo
tion of Col. Samuel Moody as quarter
master general, Vice William Potter.
President pro tein Scott of the Senate
announced his appointments, about
fiftv in all.
The Slate Committee of the House re
ported its selections, about one hundred
in all and they were elected, among
them being Jas. N. Moore of Butler for
Journal Clerk, a position said to be
worth SI,BOO, for the term.
The Committees of the Senate were
announced by the President; and Sen
ator Williams is Chairman of the
Committee on Military Affairs, and his
name also appears on the Appropria
tions, Public Grounds and Buildings
and Railroad committees.
The Committees of the House were
also announced and we notice the name
of Mr. Douthett on the Agricultural,
Educational and other Committees; and
that of Mr. Hays on the Judiciary,
Local, Manufacturers, Military and
other committees
According to the correspondent of the
Pittsburg Gazette the session began
with a deadlock on between the Execu
tive and legislative branches of the
state government; and the naming of
the Committees developed a strong
combine for legislative control. "Those
behind it, according to reliable author
ity, were Senator Boise Penrose, Israel
W. Durham, ex-Attorney Elkin and
ex-Secretary of the Commonwealth
These men made up the committees
and named the chairmen for both
branches, in making their selections
some of them at least—they acted
against the direct wishes of Senator
Quay. The issue now is one between
Senator Quay and Gov Pennypacker
on the one hand, and Penrose, Durham,
Elkin and Griest on the other.
No bill can receive favorable consider
ation by this legislature unless it has
the approval of the four leaders named.
The other view is that no bill enacted
by this legislature can become a law
unless Quay and Pennypacker believe
it to be "meritorious legislation;" This
is the status nf affairs, plainly stated,
at the close of Gov. Pennypacker's first
day in the executive chair. Friends of
both Quay and Penrose admit this to be
the real situation, Conservative leaders
mindful of the kaleidoscopic changes inci
dent to Pennsylvania politics,are hopeful
of such mntual concessions as will bring
abont peace, but the optimistic har
mony prophets are not in the majority.
Two of the most important features
of the casus belli were the failure of
Gov. Pennypacker to reappoint Secre
tary Griest and Supt. Eyre, and the re
taliatory action of the "big tour" in
insisting upon the reappointment as
chairman of the appropriations com
mittee of Representative Ward Bliss of
Dilaware. Another appointment ob
jectionable to Senator Quay was that
of Representative Frank McClain of
Lancaster, who was given his former
place on the appropriations committee,
being also named for the city passenger
railways, and and the library com
Gov. Pennypacker held up some ap
plications for charters on account of
their containing the general term "and
other legitimate business," which be
thought too vague.
Governor Pennypacker received a
special delivery letter Monday contain
ing the resignation of Judge W. W.
Porter, of Philadelphia, from the Su
perior Court bench. This is the culmi
nation of what has long been intended
by Judge Porter. The resignation will
take effect on February Ist, and in the
meantime Judge Porter's successor will
be appointed. Judge Porter succeeded
Judge Edward N. Williard, who resign
ed on September 1, 1897. His reasons
for resigning are that his duties on the
bench require him to be away from
home three months in the year.
Monday nisht, the Governor sent a
message to the Senate recalling the ap
pointments of Paul W. Houck. of Shen
andoah: G. W. Davis, of Scranton. and
W. G. Minnick. of Allegheny, as mem
bers of the State Pharmaceutical Board.
They were appointments that bad been
made by Governor Stone. Senator
Grady raised the point that the appoint
ment of Houck and Davis had already
been confirmed and that a recall at this
late date could not be made. There
was no further discussion on the sub

Another Industry at West Win
The Duquesne Fireproofing Company,
formed by Pittsburgers some time ago,
has completed at West WinfieM. a
thoroughly modern plant, which pro
vides lor radical innovations in the
manufacture of sewer pipe and brick.
The plant is arranged and equipped to
operate under a continuous system, like
the more modern steel mills. In the
process the material passes from one
piece of machinery to another, till ir
comes out in completed form, without
The plant was designed by George H.
Albertson of Pittsburg, associated for
years with Booth & Flinn in their brick
works, and of many years' experience
in clay manufacture. The operation of
the entire plant is almost automatic. It
will be started within a short time.
Later on the company will erect addi
tional works for the manufacture of
fireproofing conduits. The product of
the works as now constructed will be
sewer pipe and "front" brick.
The officers of the company, which
will have headquarters in Pittsburg,
will shortly make an inspection of the
plant during the first days of its opera
tion. F. W. McKee, president and

Mr. Wible was in his usual health
till shortly before his death.
He was one of the oldest and best cit

and esteemed bv all who knew him
He is survived by three sons, Albert
and Charles at home aud Wm. at New

At his home in Hilliard. on Monday,
Jan. 19, 1903, John Huston, died, aged
almost 36 years.
He leaves a wife and six small child
ren to mourn a kind and loving lins
baud and a most fond and affectionate
father. Mr. Huston was a member of
Lawrenceburg Lodge No. 782 I. O. O
F.. of which order he was highly appre
ciative. He was sick less than two
weeks, and during which time his
brothers in the order were in constant
attendance at his bedside. His aged
father and mother aud his wife's pa
rents came to attend their sick son also,
and their sorrow was donbley hard to
bear on account of Mrs. Huston being
on what they supposed was her death
The deceased was an ever kind and
willing friend, whom one could trust,
and in whom one had perfect confi
dence. But Brother John has gone 011
before, gone to receive his crown, gone
to meet in the Grand Ludge prepared
by the-Gieat Creator, of which he gave
abundant proof to the aged parents,
brothers, sisters and friends. We com
mend you to the Great Comforter. Who
can heal the aching void and fill the
heart with peace.
To the brother Odd Fellows who laid
aside their daily labor and so nobly
came to attend their sick brother, you
have been the means of prolonging and
possibly saving the wife and mother's
life, and in her words let me repeat:
"God save your order," this wife she
cried, striving hard to restrain her
tears. '"You have cared for me, you
have honored my dead that has crossed
oyer Jordan's bank. Don't think it
strange that I honor these men of three
links. Heart and hand may their order
prosper, flourish and grow, and may the
sound of its gavel reach every land."
Funeral services were held in the M.
E. church at Hilliard, Tuesday, Jan.
20, 1903, Rev. Crouch officiating; after
which a delegation of Odd Fellows from
Lawrenceburg took charge of the re
mains and proceeded to the cemetery at
Annisville, accompanied by a large con
course of friends and neighbors. A
very touching and appropriate service
was held by Chaplin John Hoover. All
members of the order in Hilliard and
vicinity desire the writer, through the
columns of this paper, to extend their
sincere thanks to the minister, choir
and officers of the Hilliard M. E. church
for the kindness shown the living and
the honor shown the dead.
Jonathan Darnell, a veteran of the
Civil war, and a highly respected citizen
of Allegheny twp., died on Wednesday
of last week, under peculiar circum
stances. He had been in poor health
for some time, but on Wednesday morn
ing was feeling so much better that he
hitched up his team and sleigh and
drove alone to Emlenton on business.
On the way home Mr. Durnell expir
ed in his sleigh and the team kept their
way along the road without a driver. A
neighbor noticed the team and sleigh
and that something was wrong, and on
investigation found Mr. Durnell dead
in the liottom of the sleigh where he
had fallen.
He was 62 years of age and is surviv
ed by a wife and eight children, five
daughters and three sons.

The Woman's Choice.,
Will She Choose Dr. Experi
ment or Dr. Experience?
Put the auestion plainly to any woman :
Will you cnoose the experienced or the
experimenting doctor? and there's no
doubt about the answer. What woman
wants to be the subject of experiments,
to drag out weary months while the
unskilled practitioner vainly tries various
medicines, and charges the sick woman
liberally for his experimental failures?
Yet willing or unwilling a great many
women have to go through just such an
ordeal. Their disease baffles the local
physician. He tries all he knows to
effect a cure and fails. Sometimes this
goes on for months, sometimes for years,
The woman meantime suffering daily
Perhaps the difference between the
"doctoring" of experiment and experi
ence cannot be better shown than in the
following statement:
"For seven-years I was confined to
bed most of the time," writes Mrs. M. P.
Davis, of Honaker, Russell Co., Va. " I
had four doctors and they said I could
not be cured. I had ulceration of uterus
and female weakness, so I could not
stand on my feet but a short time ; had
bearing-down sensation, pain in the
small of my back. My stomach and
bowels, also legs and feet would swell,
and everything I ate hurt me. I could
not sleep well, was so short of breath I
could not lie down at night; had sore
ness and tenderness over uterus, toubled
with palpitation of heart, and suffered
with headache all the time. I would
Set blind and have fainting spells, had
ark rings around my eyes and my eyes
seemed bloodshot; suffered from pain
ful periods; could not lie on my left side.
I would have numb speUs, pains around
my heart every morning, my lungs hurt
me a great deal and my shoulders too.
I would spit up blood at times, memory
was poor, hearing was bad, hands and
feet were cold all the time, and I had
chills and night-sweats. After the doc
tors said I could not be cured I got hold
of one of Dr. Pierce's Memorandum
Books and read how he had cured so
many patients afflicted like I was so I
thought his medicine might help me. I
wrote to Dr. Pierce for advice and he
sent me a very encouraging letter in
reply, advising me to take his ' Favorite
Prescription ' and ' Golden Medical Dis-
Co\ - ery ' and ' Pleasant Pellets.' I got
two bottles and used these and felt much
better. I sent and got six bottles more.
I can now work all day and not feel
tired at night. I can sleep all night and
can eat anything I want at any time. I
can walk and go anywhere I please. I

between experiment and experience in
treating womanly diseases? The differ
ence between success and failure. The
difference Jjetween health and sickness,
happiness and misery. The reason that
Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription cures
so many women is that it is a medicine
which is the product of years of experi-
ence in the treatment
and cure of womanly
diseases. It is a medi
cine made to do certain
things and it does what
it is made to do. Every
woman understands the
fine points of this differ
ence between experiment
and experience. When

a cook who is experi
menting with unfamiliar
recipes. The inexperi
enced man might say—
Why, there's the cook
book. It tells how to
make anything. All
you've got to do is to
measure and mix as it
| instructs and you can't
' come out wrong. Can't
you? The wife knows
very much better than
that. Given the best
recipe in the world it
takes experience to make
a success of it. The dif
ference between the suc
cess of Doctor Pierce's
Favorite Prescription and the failure of
other medicines is the difference of ex
perience. It is no experiment to use Dr.
Pierce's Favorite Prescription for the
cure of womanly ills. Experience—the
experience of hundreds of thousands of
women proclaims that it makes weak
women strong and sick women well.
Thousands of grateful letters have
been written to Dr. Pierce. They cover
cures of every form of womanly disease
