San Francisco, April 14. —William
Ilonr}* Allen, who was supposed for
twenty years to be dead, has returned
here. At one time he owned lands in
the heart of the city now valued at
$14,000,000. The records do not show
that the property ever passed out of
his hands, but the present owners hold
that under the statute of limitations
his rights have lapsed. His appear-
ance with the filing of a quitclaim
deed to half of his interest in the lands
to Lawyer John C. Watson. The prop-
erty claimed Is that on which the hand-

tel, the Chronicle and many other build-
Attorney Watson, speaking for his
client, says: “In 1848 L. Cullender re-
ceived deeds to the lands in question
from T. M. Leavenworth, then alcado
and chief magistrate of San Francisco.
Callender was Allen’s brother-in-law
and debtor, and the lands were
of little value. Callender deeded the
lands to Allen in liquidation of the
debt. Allen went back to his home in
.New York, and, nothing more being
heard of him, he was supposed to have
died without deeding his property to
anyone else. But there was reason for
his disappearance. After reaching
New York he was hurt in an accident
and he lost his mind. For twenty years
—that have been to him as a dream—
he has been harmlessly insane. Then
his impairment passed away and he
came to a realization of the fact that
lie was old and gray and one-third of
his life was a blank. With sanity
came memory and lie bethought him of
his property here, which had increased
to millions while ho wandered a day
dreamer in the realms of the insane.
Against such a man the statute of lim-
itations cannot be pleaded.”

Ciiicaoo, April 14 —R It. Hunter, an
old and wealthy cattle dealer, con-
nected with the firm of S. G. MeCaus-
tand in the Exchange building at the
Union stock yards, was sitting alone
in the firm’s otllec, room 42 Exchange

St. Louis, April 14. —Ex-Lieut.-Gov.
Brokmeyer has just returned to the
city from an extended trip through the
southwest as far south as Corpus
Christ!, Tex., and brings with him val-
uable information bearing upon the
live stock industry and the prevailing
high price of beef. “The supply of
cuttle has dwindled to an extraor-
dinary extent,” said the governor.
“Ranchmen told me in Texas qml in
the territory, and ! ha\e observed the
fact for years past myself, that the
supply of cattle has been curtailed be-
muse of a reaction resulting from over-
production. In 18S3 cattle raising was
such a remunerative industry that
millions of dollars were thus invested.
Everybody owned ranches in less than
no time, and what was the result? The
supply was so enormous and the com-
petition so keen that the prices brought
on the market gradually fell until, I
undertake to say, $.“>0,000,000 were lost.
Those who could withdrew from the
business, while others lost every hoof
they owned. On the heels of this came
a five years’ drought in tho brood belt
“The curtailment of the supply of
cattle has been still further aggravated
by the past winter’s severity. As a re-
sult, grass-fed cattle, which ordinarily
appear on the market the middle of
March, will not be seen this year until
the 1st of May. The grass crop in
Texas and the Indian territory is six
weeks late because of tins prolonged
cold weather. The failure of the
corn crop last year in the western
states practically killed the corn-fed
cattle industry, for no sane man would
feed corn to cattle when in* could got
40 or 50 cents a bushel for it.
“So you see the crisis was finally
reached when the supply of corn-f«*.l
cattle decreased, and tin* usual supply
of grass-fed which annually appears
on tho market before the 1st of April
was not forthcoming. Moreover, the
grassers will not be shipped from tin*
territory or Texas before the end of
this month, as the grass crop is so late.”

1’niLADKi.rina, April 14.—“What we
call our ‘general-in-chief,’ the black
vomit, has already begun fighting the
invading Spanish soldiers in Cuba,”
said Marcos Morales yesterday. “It is
a curious, as well as an ascertained
fact,’’ he added, with a suspicion of
satisfaction in his tone, “that this dis-
ease which rarely atTocts an American
visitor, and leaves the native un-
scathed, is sure death to the average
Spanish soldier in Cuba. That looks
as if the destiny were with us, doesn’t
it? Anyhow, that is why we call it our
‘general-in-chief.’ From this on until
August it will play havoc with the
troops sent to our island, while our
own men, especially the natives, will
be in fighting trim all through the hot
“Do you continue to receive favor-
able news from the scat of war?” was
“Not an unfavorable line from nny
source except the ‘cooked up’ reports
you see in the newspapers from Spanish
sources,” was the response; “and the
misrepresentation has been carried so
far that it no longer secures belief
either here or in Spain. All the lead-
ers of the Cuban cause in this country
were re-elected during the week in
their respective cities. The fact that
these leaders have given satisfaction
during the preceding year is shown by
the fact that, without exception, they
were re-elected. Jose Marti was again
chosen as delegate, although he is now
formally declared president of the pro-
visional government in Cuba. As we
have our own work to do in our own
way, we keep the organizations separ-
ate, ami hence he has been placed at
the head of the American movement.
The other national ollieers are Ben-
jamin Guerra, treasurer, and Gonzales

Washington. April 14.—The western
supporters of tho income tax proposi-
tion will not let it go at the supremo
court decision. A prompt announce-
ment is made that upon the convening
of congress u western senator will offer
a joint resolution submitting to tho
states a constitutional amendment,
which removes the legal objections to
the law. Section 0, of article 1, of the
constitution, says that “no capitation
j or other direct tax shall be laid unless
j in prop >rtion to the census or enumer-
! at,ion herein before directed to be
Under this the supremo court de-
clared unconstitutional the most popu-
lar provision of the income tax. The
j proposed amendment will be drafted
in such form as to make it constitu-
j tional to put the burden of taxation
| for federal purposes upon the wealthy.
It will authorize the levying of capita-
tion and direct taxes.
A two-thirds vote of both senate and
t house is required to submit a proposi-
tion for a constitutional amendment,
and then the amendment is not ratified
until it receives the assent of two-
thirds of the states. This will call for
sixty senators and 237 representatives.
It is not believed that tho promoters of
the proposition can command that sup-
port. It will be harder to get that
vote in congress than it would be to
get the ratification. The senator who
has the matter in hand claims that
only eleven states would vote against
ratification. These would be the New
England states. Now York, Delaware,
New Jersey, Maryland and Pennsyl-
vania. The west and south, he says,
will he unanimous for such a proposi-
tion. The senator says that in the
event of failure in tho next congress, a
systematic movement will be inau-
gurated to have the legislatures of
two-thirds of the states avail them-
selves of their privilege, and request
congress to call a constitutional con-
vention to consider the matter. Such
a request would be mandatory, and
congress would have no alternative but

Washington. April 14.—Secretary La-
mont has decided upon the main feat-
ures of the official exercises authorized
by congress in de lication of the Chick-
amanga and Chattanooga National
Military park. The ceremonies will
be begun on the battlefield of Chicka-
mauga September 19, and will comprise
the formal announcement of the open-
ing of the park by the war department,
representing the government, two ora-
tions by speakers of national prom-
inence and the proper military display.
On the following day exercises in con-
tinuation of the dedication relating to
the battles of Lookout Mountain and
Missionary Ridge will be held at Chat-
tanooga with a somewhat similar pro-
gramme. In ease of rain all exercises
will take place at Chattanooga under
cover of adequate capacity, to be pro-
vided as a providential measure.
The secretary will arrange to have
all the armies represented in the bat-
tles participate in the dedication by
setting apart the night of September
19 to the union and confederate armies
of the Tennessee; and the night of the
20th to the I'otomac and northern Vir-
ginia. The regular army will be rep-
resented by the lieutenant-general and
a detatchment of troops. The Society
of the Army of the Cumberland will
hold its regular annual reunion at
Chattanooga the evening of September

all official visitors and representatives
of the other army societies will be in-

That Tired Feeling *
Is a certain indication of impure and
impoverished blood. If your blood
could always be rich and pure, full of
the red corpuscles upon which its vi-
tality depends, you would never be
Weak, or Nervous! Boils, pimples,
scrofula, salt rheum, would never
trouble you. But our mode of living,
shut in yll winter in poorly ventilated
homes and shops, depletes the blood
and there is loss of appetite and
weakness. Hood’s Sarsaparilla is the
standard remedy for this condition.
It purifies, vitalizes and enriches the
blood, overcomes that tired feeling,
builds up the nerves and gives perfect
health. Read this :
“Our daughter, Blanche, when four
years of age had a humor break out
on her hands and face, which our
physician pronounced eczema. If
the cold air reached her face or
hands they would swell up,
look almost purple, and headed
blisters would form and break
Discharging a watery fluid, and the
burning and itching would drive her
nearly wild. Unless we incased her
little hands she would tear patches of
skin from her face and hands. We
tried many doctors and many reme-
dies and at last gave the case up as
hopeless. But our daughter Cora
tried Hood’s Sarsaparilla, to cure a
scrofulous lump near the left breast
which caused her much pain and af-
ter taking 4 bottles it disappeared.'
Blanche, who is now eleven, had spent
seven years of suffering, so I con-
cluded to give her Hood’s Sarsapa-
rilla. She took 5 bottles and her face
is smooth and soft as a baby's, the
color of a rose petal. Her hands are
soft and white, where four months
ago they were blue and red and cal-
loused nearly like leather. I cannot
express my gratitude by pen or mouth.
It seems a miracle and our friends are
surprised.” Mrs. Anna L. Clark,
