everything possible will be done to

Hoard of Health reports to The Times
of this city through City Physician
Holland that each of the eleven th!rd
stage consumptives, placed under
treatment obtained from Dr. Amiek,
of Cincinnati, by the city authorities
several weeks ago. have improved to a
degree almost miraculous. The re-
sults as given to the press bv Ward's
Island Hospital, New York, while
equally sensational, were not so com-
prehensive, and local medical men
claim that this is the most complete
demonstration that consumption is
curable, thus far made. The Times
says the eleven patient s to whom were
administered Dr. Amiek's medicines,
are so far improved that their appe-
tites have returned. They sleep well
at night, have no night sweats, the
irritating cough has disappeared, and
they feel much stronger in every way.

Consequently the court adjourned un-

At 0 o'clock the lawyers resumed

o'clock, after which the four unchal-
lenged members of tho court retired
for consultation and in less than two

The point made in the challenge
was that the governor had no right to
remove General Kimball before tho

might be detailed to sit instead.
Judge 1 tester spoke briefly against
the validity of the challenge and Gen-
oral Caldwell, on behalf of the ue-
cused, argued in support of the chal-
lenge that it would be iudelicate on
the part of Lieutenant" Jacobs to sit,
as he had belonged to Colonel Hughes'
regiment, and Colonel Hughes' dis-
missal might result to the advantage
of Lieutenant Jacobs in the way of
promotion: The court agtrin' retired,

learned that he has charge of General
Harrison's campaign for 1S;H> and will
work systematically from Washing-
ton. Lodges or clubs are being formed
all over the Fast with Harrison's nom-
ination in view. The money strin-
gency is to be attributed to the Demo-
cratic administration; the failure of
banks to the want of confidence in the
Democratic party. There is no doubt
that Harrison will have this state for
him. The fight is to be started at
once and kept up until 1800.

MRS. SAM WOOD.
The Widow of the Murder*.I I
Tulkii Bitterly About .Jolimto.i.
Kansas City, Mo . Aug "B. E.
Johnston met the fate which he so
richly deserved, and every member of
the gang who planned the assassina-
tion of my husband will travel the
same road sooner or later."
Thus bitterly spoke Mrs. Margaret
Wood, widow of the widely known
Kansas politician, Samuel N. Wood,
yesterday. Mrs Wood then buried
her face in her hands and seemed
"1 am positive," she said, "and, in
fact, it is well known in Southwestern
Kansas that Johnston was one of the
ring leaders of tho gang that so delib-
erately planned the death of my hus-
band. He asserted three weeks before
the tragedy occurred that a scheme
had been laid to kill Sam Wood. I
heard of it and sent for a person who
was frieudly to the Johnston crowd,
and also on very friendly terms
with iny husband to ascertain
what the scheme was He assured mo
that there was no truth in the report
On the day that my husband was
killed. Johnston was there for no other
purpose than to see that the plan to
kill Mr. Wood was carried out. While
I do not believe that Johnson fired a
shot, yet I know that ho helped plan
the murder. 1 saw him a few minutes
later and think that lie must have been
in the court house at the time."
Mrs. Wood has not yet been sub-
poBuaed to appear at tiio preliminary
examination of Little, but says she
will take the stand and tell what she
knows of Johnston, if called upon to
do so. She camo here at the request
of Little's friends, and did not know
for what they wanted her.
The third day of the Little pre-
liminary hearing yesterday developed
nothing new, except for personalities
between the lawyers. The hearing
went over until Saturday.

Kansas City. Mo, Aug. 5.—The im-
plement house and wholesale district
in tho neighborhood of Eleventh and
Hickory streets, which has boon the
scene of many disastrous tires, was
last night visited by another blaze, en-
tailing a loss of probably $100,000. The
fire was in the establishment of tho
Whitman Barnes Manufacturing
company at It2HI West Eleventh
street. It being the opening of the
bitsv season, there was an immense
stock on hand, which, it is thought,
was almost entirely destroyed. The
firemen kept the fire well in hand, but

Chicago, Aug. 4 .—The National bi-
metallic convention adjourned yester-
day afternoon after the adoption of
the platform and indorsing the speech
of General A. J. Warner, of Ohio, de-
livered Tuesday, as the address of the
convention to tho people of tbe coun-
try. After remarks by ox-United States
Senator Hill of Colorado, Congressman
Rowlands of Nevada, United Mates
Senator Allen of Nebraska,and others,
Governor Waite of Colorado, was in-
troduced amid tremendous applause
A number of enthusiastic delegates
had been howling" for two days for
Waite, ami when the chief executive
of tho Centennial state mounted the
platform their cup of joy was over-
flowing. Cheer after cheer was given
by delegates, who stood up and waved
their hats wildly, and the ovation ter-
minated wi'A "three cheers for Gov-
Governor Waite spoke at groat
length, lie asserted that since 1873
no congress has convened but, that a
majority in both houses was in favor
of restoring the free coinage of silver.
Congress has never been able to enact
audi a law because the president,
■whether Republican or Democrat, lias
always been dominated by Wall street
and stood ready to interpose his veto,
equal to a two-thirds vote in both
houses of congress.
The effect of the goldbwg conspir-
acy which has denied free coinage of
silver sincc 187:i has been to increase
the purchasing power of money or, to
put the statement in another form, to
decrease the value of all commodities.
Abraham Lincoln said if a debt is cre-
ated with a certain amount of money
in circulation, and then the govern-
ment contracts the money volume be-
fore tho debt is paid,it is tire most hein-
ous crime which the government can
commit against tho people. And that,
said Governor Waite, is exactly what
this government has been doing since
1873. Congressional legislation and
nothing else has reduced the price of
silver bullion from >1.32 per ounce iu
1873 to 70 cents in 1893, and legisla-
tion for which the two old parties are
equally responsible has reduced the
price of whoat in the same time from
$1.41 per bushel to 53 cents. The
s&me legislation has reduced the price
of cotton from 19 3-10 cents to 7 8-10
•cents in the same time. The ratio of
value of silver as bullion compared
•with tho gold dollar has been
increased from 16 to 1 to
or :.'l to 1. It has uot only diminished
the value of silver bullion, but
.also diminished in almost the same
proportion the value of wheat, eorn,
pork, beef, cotton and the wages of
labor. Wo hear much about over pro-
duction, law of supply and demand,
etc., but with the single standard gold
men of Europe who have the reins in
their own hands there is not tho same
necessity to lie about it and no such
dishonest attempt to dodge the issue.
Waite then quoted from the speech
by Balfour at Manchester in which he
quoted hiin as saying: "The gold
monetary standard in fifteen or six-
teen years lias gone up no less than
thirty to thirty-five per cent, and as
to its further rise in value no man can
set a limit."
Waite said that the international
conference for the purpose of settling
our money affairs by the dictation of
foreign monev power is the most con-
temptible and God-forsaken idea that
ever entered the brain of an American
citizen. If we have become, under the
rule of the two old parties, only a
province of European monarchies, then
we need another revolution, another
appeal to arms and to the God of
hosts. This evoked great applause.
In closing Governor Waite said:
"Who is Grover Cleveland and who is
llenjamih Harrison, aud who are their
supporters in Wall street and Chicago,
that they dare assume to drive into
poverty arid exile half a million of
American freemen? There's no use
crying peace when there is 110 peace.'
The most dangerous tyranny
is that enforced under forms
of law. Our weapons are ar-
guments and ballot, free ballot and
fair count It the money power shall
attempt to sustain its usurpation of
our rights by strong hands, as in other
lands, we will meet that issue if it is
forced upon us; for it is better, in-
finitely better, rather than that our
lilert;«s should be destroyed by
tyranny, that is oppressing humanity
all ovi r the world, that we should
wade through seas of blood—yea,
blood to horses' bridles. (Tremendous

Superstition* About Hair
All the ancient philosophers held
curious ideas respecting the growtli.
functions, structure, etc., of the hair
and had many superstitions founded
on theso odd opinions. The early
writer* on the make-up of the humar.
body almost invariably refer to the
hair as being an excrement fed on
substances similar to itself. They
suppose that it generated in the
fuliginous parts of tho blood.-was
exhaled by the heat of the body,
becoming firm and fibrous upon being
exposed to the air, just as the fluid
oi the spider web does. In i.hesw
days every idea respecting the
growth and character ; f hair is
changed. D is now agreed that
every hair probably and truly lives
and receives its nutriment from tho
body. True,they take upon themselves
the nature of parasitic plants; they
grow as vegetation does, yet each
has. as it wore, a distinct life and
economy. That they derive their
existence from the juices of the body
tin-re is no doubt, but that food it
not tukcu from the nutritious juice.-,
for wo know that hair will thrive
even though the body starve or
washed by disease, or even after th*
aniuial life haw ceased to exisi in Ihti
llesh or skin to which they are at-
The Eicape of Prisoners.
Abundant evidence is daily forth-
coming that prisons are not by any
means to iie relied on for the safe-
keeping of those whose liberty has
been temporal Hy restricted by tho
pronouncement of the law. Givon a
certain amount of patience, ingenu-
ity, alertness and nerve, and the,
chances of a criminal's eventual
escape from enforced confinement be
come in many cases quite appreci-
able. Should, however, the latest
improvement in prison construction
be. adopted, this possibility would be
reduced to a minimum. It is pro-
posed to build cells of iron or steel
intercommunicating pipes in which
water would be maintained under
pressure. The theory of the inven-
tor is that an attempt to break out
of a dungeon thus constructed would
result in damage to the tell-tale
tubes, the smallest puncture in which
would cause a leak, of which quick
notice would be transmitted to the
warders by the reduction of pressure,
and the consequent- sounding of an
alarm The idea is ingenious, and
whether or not it shoifttl prove to bo
practicable, it may form the nucleus
ol a feasible plan of increasing tho
safety of prisons.
Honesty the Best Follcf.
••No honest dealer, ' '•aid the gro-
cer, picking some dark-gray objects
out of the scoop and pouring the rest
of the contents carefully into his

sides," he continued, dropping a

In N«. vTuy the horses always have
h bdcfcev of water placed beside each
animal's allowance of hay. After
each mouthful of hay they take a sip
of water. It is said that this mode
of feeding is beneficial: and to it the
