THE TITLE IS GOOD.
Attorney General Knox Reports 00
the Panama Canal.
Frmldont Rooimlt Cannot Appoint •
Commlailoo to Soloot the Boat* Bo*
com# of n Constant Btato of
War In Colombia.
Washington, Oct. 27.—Attorney
General Knox made his report on tl.e
validity of the title to the Panama
canal to President Roosevelt Satur-
day. The report was very exhaustive
and covered about 300 pages. He
holds that the title of the Panama
Canal company is good.
Non-action on the part of the gov-
ernment of Colombia on the pend-
ing isthmian canal treaty is post-
poning the appointment of the com-
mission which is to take charge of
the construction of the canal. It was
at first supposed that as soon as
the attorney-general had satisfied
himself of tjie sufficiency of the title
to the canal property that could be
conveyed by the French company, the
way would be clear for the appoint-
ment of the commission and soon
after for the preparation of the
specifications upon which the work
is to be done. Now it has developed
that the ratification of the treaty
with Colombia is a long way off, ow-
ing to the fact that the Colombian con-
gress, before which the convention
must come, has not been elected up
to tliis time. The delay is attribu-
ted to the existence of a state of
war in Colombia.
A COMPARISON MADE.
A Oreatnr Percentage of Illiteracy Among
Native Children Than Those of Foreign-
Washington, Oct. 27.—The census
office has issued a statement giving
a compilation of figures regarding
illiteracy among children of immi-
grants and children of natives. The
statement says: “Confining the com-
parison to children between the ages
of 10 and 14 years in the United
States 97.96 per cent, of the native
white children of native parents and
99.1 per cent, of the native white
children of foreign-born parents are
able to read and write. This sur-
prising difference in favor of the
children of the foreign-born popula-
tion is due largely to the fact that
the children of the foreign-born im-
migrants live mainly in the northern
and western states, where the public
Bchool system has already reached
a high degree of efficiency, while
great numbers of native white chil-
dren of native parents live in the
southern states and in that region
about 10 per cent, of such children
<al« of Food Supplies In the Philippine*.
Manila, Oct. 27.—Twenty-seven
thousand dollars have been realized
from the sale of food supplies in the
provinces of Batangas and Laguna,
Luzon, and in the island of Mindoro.
These sales were conducted with the
idea of aiding the people and the
work was carried on by Gen. J.
Franklin Bell. The sum derived has
been turned over by Gen. Bell to the
insular government and it will be ex-
pended by the civil commission among
the people of Batangas, Laguna and
Hogged and Klaaed by the Girl*.
Chicago, Oct. 27. — Immediately

Mitchell's Gift from Friend*.
Wilkesbarre, Pa., Oct. 27.—Presi-
dent Mitchell was presented with a
gold badge and gold watch by the
Polish, Lithuanian and Slavish mem-
bers of the United Mine Workers.
The badge bears the monogram, “J.
M.,” in diamonds on the back. Below
this is a button of the United Mine
Workers of America. The seal of the.
organization is in the form of a
breaker boy standing in the midst
of a bank of coal.
Dlsa«troas Explosion of a Mogul Engine.
Kansas City, Mo., Oct. 27.—A mogul
engine pulling a freight train on the
Chicago & Alton railway exploded
near Evanston, a suburb of Kansas
City. II. M. Rhoades, the fireman,
was killed and John Connelly, the
engineer, was so seriously injured
that he may die. The big engine was
totally destroyed and 17 cars were
Boars Abandon Their American Tour.
London. Oct. 27.—In a dispatch
from Brussels the correspondent of
the Standard says it is declared posi-
tively there that Gens. Botha and
Oelarey have abandoned their pro-
posed tour of the United States and
ivin return shortly to South Africa.
HB STARTLES THE ORTHODOX.
Professor at Northwestern University At*
tAflka Revivalist* and the Emotlohal
Method of Ualnlug Convert*.
Chicago, Oct. 25.—George A. Coe,
professor of moral and intellectual
philosophy at Northwestern univer-
sity, lias startled the orthodox M. K.
adherents by airing his views on reli-
gion. “The Religion of a Mature
Mind,’’ Prof. Coe’s book, is as radical
as “The Carpenter Prophet,” which
got Prof. Peurson, of the same uni-
versity, into hot water. Prof. Coe
attacks revlvnlistH and the emotional
method of gaining converts. Their
decadence is pointed out as the result
of modern ideas. “Revivals and the
revival type of conversion are by no
means universal in the progress of
the kingdom of God,” says the au-
thor. “The credulous man has been
exalted above the man of critical in-
tellect and tears have been habitually
preferred to action.” “Sunday
schools,” says Prof. Coe, “are as far
behind the common school as a tal-
low dip is behind an electric light.”
The author on the subject of prayer,
reiterates that “prayer carries its
end, its justification, its efficacy in it-
self.” The idea that intercession for
another may be effective is identified
with telepathy. The professor utters
a warning “that no such speculation
as this should be made into a support
of prayer, nor should apparent an-
swers to prayer be adduced in sup-
port of the hypothesis.”
ARBITRATORS START WORK.
They Confer with President Roosevelt, Re-
ceive Tlielr Instructions end Hold s
Washington, Oct. 25.—The members
of the strike arbitration commis-
sion, appointed by President Roose-
velt, met at the white house yester-
day morning and went into confer-
ence with the president. The inter-
view was brief, lasting scarcely 20
minutes. The work to be done by
the commission was informally dis-
cussed. The president then present-
ed to them their instructions. With
the instructions were the statements
of the operators. The members of
the commission afterwards left the
white house and went into executive
session at Col. Wright’s office. Judge
Gray was chosen chairman. The
commission adjourned to meet again
next Monday and the parties to the
controversy were notified to be pres-
ent at the meeting on Monday for
the purpose of arranging a time for
hearings which will be convenient
for all concerned.
FOUND GUILTY OF MURDER.
A Jury Convicts Tom Horn, the Famous
Scout, of Killing Willie
Cheyenne, Wyo., Oct. 25.—Tom
Horn, the famous scout and stock
detective, was yesterday evening
found guilty of murder in the first
degree. The trial of Horn for the
murder of Willie Nickell, 14 years
old, son of Kels Nickell, on July 18,
1901, at his father’s ranch in the Iron
mountain country, was begun Octo-
ber 10. The arguments were finished
and the case given to the jury at
11:25 o’clock yesterday. The verdict
was reached before five o’clock in the
evening. The claim of the prosecu-
tion was that Horn, in the pay of
certain large cattle owners, killed
the Nickell boy in an effort to fright-
en his father and cause him to leave
HIS UNLUCKY DAY.
Walking Shields, a Rose Bud Indian,
Hanged for Killing the Mother
of His Sweetheart. .
Sioux Falls, S. D., Oct. 25.—Walking
Shield, a Rosebud Indian, was
hanged hei’e Friday for the murder
of Mrs. Ghost-Face-Bear on the Rose-
bud Indian reservation, May 8, 1902.
On the way to the gallows the Indian
joked with the marshals. The mur-
dered woman was the mother of the
girl with whom Walking Shield was
enamored and the Indian killed her
“so she would not be in the way.”
Last night at sundown Walking'
Shield sang a wierd death song as

Dickinson Goes to Stilwell’s Road.
Kansas City, Mo., Oct. 25.—Edward
Dickinson, since 1893 general mana-
ger of the Union Pacific railroad
system, has resigned and on Novem-
ber 1 will become general manager
of the Kansas City, Mexico & Ori-
ent railway. Mr. Dickinson is rec-
ognized as a thorough railroad man
of unusual ability and his connec-
tion with the Orient line will be a
great advantage to that enterprise.
Trusts Will Be the Keynote.
Washington, Oct. 25.—President
Roosevelt has begun the preparation
of his second annual message to
congress. It may be stated with
authority that the keynote of the
president’s message will be the trust
question. Events of the vacation
period have convinced the president
and his advisers that the trust ques-
tion is the paramount issue with the
MRS. STANTON DIES.
tils Wall Known Woman Suffragist Pnsim
Awny Through Old Agn nt Hsr Horn*
In New York.
New York, Oct. 27.—Elizabeth Cady
Stanton, the well-known woman suf-
fragist, died yesterday at her home
in WeBt Ninety-fourth street, in this
city. Old age was given as the cause
of death. She was conscious almost
to the last. About a week ago Mrs.
Stanton began to fail rapidly.
Elizabeth Cady Rtanton’was one of
the pioneers of the woman’s suffrage
movement, and with the possible ex-
ception of Susan B. Anthony was
the best known womun connected
with that movement. She was born
at .lohnstown, N. Y., November 12,
1815, und was, therefore, 87 years old.
The first woman’s rights convention
ever held in this country was called
by her. It was held at Seneca Falls,
N. Y., in July, 1848, and it was there
she made the first demand for wo-
man’s suffrage, carrying it after a
long debate and over determined op-
position. In 1840 she was one of the
advocates of the married woman’s
property bill, which was introduced
that year in the New York legisla-
ture, and followed up the agitation
in regard to this measure until its
final passage in 1848. For the last
quarter of a century she has annually
addressed a committee of congress in
behalf of the proposed sixteenth
amendment to the constitution of the
United States, which would grant the
franchise to women.
POLITICAL PARTIES SCORED.
“Golden Rule” Jones Characterise* Them
•s Childish, Immature and Imbecile—
The Coal Strike.
Chicago, Oct. 27.—Political parties
were scored at a meeting here last
night of the Chicago Philosophical
society by Samuel M. Jones, the
“Golden Rule” mayor of Toledo. He
characterized the whole party sys-
tem as “childish, immature and im-
becile. One of his sentences that
called forth applause was spoken
when he referred to the action of
President Roosevelt in bringing
about a settlement of the coal strike.
“The president became more than
a president—he became a man,” he
said. “The coal strike in 1902 will
be found in the future to have made
the largest contribution to the cause
of human liberty of anything since
Lincoln signed the emancipation
proclamation,” is the way Mr. Jones
summed up the coal strike.
Plans a New Dynasty.
New York, Oct. 26.—Choy Sel Ken,
nobleman, professor, author and
man of wealth in the Chinese empire,
has reached New York on his world
mission of organizing a reform party,
which, peaceably, if possible, and by
revolution, if necessary, is to seize
the reins of government of the Flow-
ery Kingdom immediately upon the
death of the empress dowager. As
she is now 86 years old, the belief is
warranted that the event is not far
Bays Genesis Is Wrong.
Chicago, Oct. 26.—At the Temple of
Israel last night Dr. Emil G. Hirsch
declared his absolute disbelief in the
first chapter of Genesis and bade his
congregation disregard it as an ar-
ticle of faith. “Religion, biology and
astronomy,” the rabbi declared, “have
each given evidence that makes it
impossible to believe that the world
was made in six days.”
Refused to Restrain Bible In Schools.
Brooksville, Ky., Oct. 27.—Judge
Harbeson refused Saturday to grant
an injunction restraining teachers in
the local public schools from conduct-
ing devotional exercises and having
Bible readings. The proceedings were
brought by Rev. J. A. Cusack, of the
Goman Catholic church, and were
aased on constitutional grounds.
Cleveland Is Getting Interested.
New York, Oct. 27.—For the first
time since he left the white house
?x-President Cleveland will take the
stump in a political campaign and
speak at a democratic rally. He will
address a meeting at Morristown, N.
J., the evening of October 30.
Chnrch Ritualism In Politics.
London, Oct. 26.—It is admitted by
all political parties in Great Britain
that the principal question to come
before the electors at the next gen-
eral election will be that of extreme
ritualism in the Church of England.

FALLIBILITIES OF SCIENCE.
Lord Kelvin Was Pnaaled Over the
Impossible Angle of n Ladder
Which Couldn't Pall.
At a certain favorite resort in London a
conversation among a number of financiers
turned upon cable sliures and wireless tel-
egraphy. One confirmed cable worshipper
quoted Lord Kelvin’s opinion that the com-
panies hud no need to be alarmed at the prog-
ress of Marconi, relates a London paper.
“Oh," exclaimed another, “Lord Kelvin be
hanged! It is not the first time he has made
a mistake. Why, 1 remember years ugo,
when lie was plain Billy Thomson, he wee
aut in the country for a ride with bis brother.
You know he was always like the old fish
hag that O’Connell tackled. He slept on
a parallelogram, shaved with a spheroid,
watched the process of an ellipse and gen-
erally took bis mathematics to bed with him.
Anyhow he never passed anything without
mailing a cadulation about it. This time it
was a ladder standing against a wall at an
angle which according to all know;n laws
ought to be impossible, especially as it stood
on smooth concrete at the bottom. He
jailed his brother’s attention. They both
got down, took measurements, made endless
calculations, and considered various theo-
ries to account for the absence of slip. At
last they fixed on some far-fetched explana-
tion just as the farmer hove in sight. Then
they casually called his attention to the
strange circumstance. ‘Oh, ay,’ says the old
man, ‘the ladder? Yes, I put it there for my
hens, and it’s pretty tight with the licldfast
it the top!’ ”
St. Jacoba Oil.
In cases where bronchitis has become
jhronic from want of proper treatment in
:he earlier stages, there is nothing so good
is Dr. August Koenig’s Hamburg Breast
rea, in conjunction with which is strongly
idvised the use of St. Jacobs Oil as an out-
ward application, along the front. ofk the
throat, from close up under the chin to well
down to the top of the chest j the one rem-
edy assists the other, and, as intended, they
work in complete unison. The wonderful
penetrating power of St. Jacobs Oil en-
ables it to reach the adhesion of foreign
matter which lines the bronchial tubes and
which makes‘breathing more and more dif-
icult. As these adhesions become inflamed
ind enlarged, St. Jacobs Oil causes such ad-
hesions to break away, making expectorn-
.ion easier,and more free. Dr. August
Koenig’s Hamburg Breast Tea, drank slowly
tnd very hot, soothes and heals the parts,
s comforting and quieting, stops the cough
ind relieves the breathing. This manner
if treatment (and there is no other two
remedies that will work together so suc-
jessfully) reaches the difficulty from the
outside and the inside at the same time.
St. Jacobs Oil reaches the roots of the ad-
hesion, and assists Dr. August Koenig’s
Hamburg Breast Tea in clearing them; then
both remedies act in unison in healing and
curing. The above remarks apply with equal
force in cases of asthma, croup, whooping
cough, enlarged tonsils, and all bronchial
affections. Every family should have St.
Jacobs Oil and Dr. August Koenig’s Ham-
burg Breast Tea always in the house in or-
der that they may be promptly used in the
first stages. Often the maladies develope
with wonderful rapidity, and complications
take place with equal suddenness.
“Well,” remarked the sptimist, “oppor-
tunity knocks once at every door.” “Yes,
there’s something very feminine about op-
portunity,” replied the pessimist. “She
makes her call when she’s pretty sure you’re
out, and that’s the end of it.”—Philadelphia

On the Verge of Bright’s
Disease.—A Quick Cure
CASE NO. 30.611.—C. E. Boies, deal-
er in grain and feed, 505 South Water
Street, Akron, 0., made the following
statement in 1896, he said: “Ever
since the Civil War I have had attacks
of kidney and bladder troubles, decid-
edly worse during the last two or
three years. Although I consulted
physicians', some of whom told me I
was verging on Bright’s disease, and
I was continually using standard rem-
edies, the excruciating aching just
across the kidneys, which radiated to
the shoulder blades, still existed. As
might be expected when my kidneys1
were in a disturbed condition, there
was a distressing and inconvenient
difficulty with the action of the kid-
ney secretions. A box of Doan’s Kid-
ney Pills, procured at Lamparter &
Co.’s drug store, brought such a de-
cided change within a week that I
continued the treatment. The last

Mr. Boies says in 1899: “In the
spring of 1896 I made a public state-
ment of my experience with Doan’s
Kidney Pills. This remedy cured me
of a terrible aching in the kidneys,
in the small of my back, in the mus-
cles of the shoulder blades, and in the
limbs. During the yearsthathave gone
by I can conscientiously say there have
been no recurrences of my old trouble.
My confidence in Doan's Kidney Pills
is stronger than ever, not only from
my personal experience but from the
experience of many others in Akron
which have oome to my notice.”
