TWENTY YEARS OF IT.
Emaciated by Diabetes; Tortured
With Gravel and Kidney Pains.
Henry Soule, cobbler, of Ham-
mondsport, N. Y., says: "Since Doan's
Kidney Pills cured me eight years
ago, I've reached 70 and hope to live
many years longer. But twenty years
ago I had kidney
trouble so bad I
could not work.
Backache was per-
sistent and it was
agony to lift any-
and terrible urin-
ary disorders ran
me down from 1G8
to 100 pounds. Doctors told me I had
diabetes and could not live. I was
wretched and hopeless when I began
using Doan's Kidney Pills, but they
cured me eight years ago, and I've
been well ever since."

PAIN INJHE JOINTS
Rheumatic Tortures Cease When Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills Make
The first sign of rheumatism is fre-
quently a pain and swelling in one of
the joints. If not combated in the
blood, which is the seat of the disease,
the poison spreads, affecting other joints
and tissues. Some times rheumatism at-
tacks the heart and is quickly fatal.
The one remedy that has cured
rheumatism so that it stays cured is Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills. These pills expel
the poison from the blood and restore
the system, so that the poisonous matter
is passed off as nature intended.
Mrs. I. T. Pitcher, of No. 130 Mon-
mouth street, Newark, N. J , suffered
for about three years from rheumatism
before she found this cure. She says:
" It began with a queer feeling in my
lingers. In a little time it seemed as
though the finger joints had lumps on
them and I could not get my gloves on.
"Then it grew worse and spread to
my knees. I could int stand up and I
could not sleep nights. My suffering
was more than I can describe. I took a
great deal of medicine, but nothing even
gave me relief uaijil I tried Dr. Williams'
" I read an account of a cure in a case
that was exactly like mine and my hus-
band got me some of the pills. I took
them for three weeks before I really felt
better but they finally cured me. "
Mr. Pitcher, who is a veteran and n
member of E D. Morgan Post, No. 80?
of New York, substantiates his wife's
statement ami snys that she now walks
without difficulty, whereas a year ago
he was compelled to push her about in a
wheeled chair. Both Mr. and Mrs.
Pitcher are enthusiastic in their praise
of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.

Charges Made Against Management
of Isthmian Canal—Article De-
nounced by Secretary Taft—Hearing
Before Senate Committee
WASHINGTON: Poultney BIgelow,
magazine writer, whose arraignment
of the administration and management
of the isthmian canal affairs in an ar-
ticle published in the Independent,
which was denounced by Secretary of
War Taft, proved to be a contumacious
witness before the senate committee
on inter-oceanic canals and involved
the committee in a controversy which
caused two executive sessions and
must be considered again before ac-
tion can be taken. The recalcitrancy
of the witness was shown as the result
of a statement made *>y him that many
eminent engineers had declined to ac-
cept the employment of the govern-
ment because of the physical condi-
tions on the isthmus. The committee
demanded the names of such engi-
neers and Br. Bigelow declined to give
them on the round that to do so would
be to violate confidence and subject
these persons to embarrassment. He
intimated that the displeasure of the
administration would be exhibited In
such manner that their "reputations
would be worth nothing after the ot-
ficial replies should be concluded."
Two opportunities to answer were
given to Mr. Bigelow, but he persisted
in his refusals. Senator Mo:-van, who
conducted the last examination,
wraned the witness in such manner as
seemed to commit the witness to pun-
ishment is he continued to bring him-
self into contempt, but the advice was
of no avail, and the doors were or-
dered closed for a second time. In ex-
ecutive session it developed that the
committee was agreed that the of-
fenses of Mr. Bigelow were of such a
nature that there could be no doubt of
the committee's power to have him
dealt with summarily. Senators Knox,
Hopkins and Morgan favored certifica-
tion of his recalcitrancy to the vice-
president for submission of the case to
United States Attorney Baker of the
District of Columbia. This course met
opposition from Senators Gorman and
Simmons, on the ground that it would
prevent further examination of tfie
witness e/ other subjects mentioned
in the magazine article wihch makes
charges against the canal manage-
ment. Several members of the com-
mittee said that Mr. Bigelow's use-
fulness as a witness was at an end,
and urged, and urged so vehemently
against any delay in proceedings
against Mr. Bigelow that Seantors Gor-
man and Simmons declared that their
purpose seemed to be to interfere
with the thorough investigation of ca-
nal affairs which was ordered by the
Department Rules Against Allotments
to Mississippi Choctaws
MUSKOGEE: The secretary of the
interior has sustained the Dawes com-
mission in the recommendation de-
nying the right of allotments In the
Choctaw nation of the descendants of
Jane and Nancy Brashears, Involving
the right to 385 allotments aggregat-
ing 123,200 acres of land in the Choc-
This was one of the hardest fought
allotment contest cases that has ever
been before the commission and has
been in contest three years. The 3ST>
applicants claimed the right to allot-
ments as direct descendants of Jane
and Nancy Brashears, who, It was al-
leged, lived in the old Choctaw nation
prior to 1830, and were of Choctaw
blood. These citizenship claims were
denied by the Dawes commission May
15, 1905, on the grounds that they had
failed to comply with the requirements
of article 14, of the Choctaw treaty
of 1830, and had not presented claims
of rights thereunder to any commis-
sion appointed by congrcss to adjudi-
cate such claims. The refusal was on
the grounds of negligence rather than
on that of a question of blood. This
decision was sustained by the attorney
general and by the secretary of the
The aplicants, in order to establish
their case, went back to the family
records of seventy-five years ago and
produced the records of the family as
well as a voluminous amount of cor-
respondence that had taken place be-
tween members of this family and
other persons tending to show the re-
lationship, the principal point being to
prove that Keziah Dumas and Eliza-
beth Thompson were the heads or
Choctaw families in the Choctaw na-
tion in 1830. KThe commission finds
that the applicants failed to sifStaln
the facts which they claimed and the
case has finally been dismissed.

torial auditor, has made a settlement

homa's convicts during the quarter

oners were received during the quar-
ter an dthirty-six discharged, of whom

Decided the Case Against Woman,
But Gave Money
MUSKOGEE: A suit had just been
decided against a woman In United
States Commissioner Leekley's court
at Muskogee and the Jury of six men
were about to be discharged after
each man had received his legal sti-
pend of twenty-five cents for h;<? ser-
vices when the woman arose and
asked to be heard.
Judge Leekley granted the privilege
and she said:
"Now each of you men has received
twenty-five cents for deciding this
case against me. I have spent all day
in the court room here and I must
have some place to stay and some-
thing to eat for myself and children.
As I am out of money 1 think it would
be no more than right for each one of
you jurors to hand me over that quar-
ter you have just received."
Inside of one minute the woman
was in possession of the money and
was making her way toward the near-
est restaurant somewhat ameliorated

A Yankee "Called"
A Yankee passenger in a train the
other day was wearying his fellow
travelers with "tall" stories, and re-
marked: "We can start with a twelve-
story hotel one month and have it
finished the next." This was too
much for a burly Yorkshire man who
sat next to him. "Man, that's nowt,"
he replied. "Ah've seen 'em when
ah've bin going to work just laying
the foundation stones of a row of
houses and when ah've bin coming
home at niet they've bin putting the
folks out for back rent."—London

Why should the people of Arizona
be compelled to accept union with a
people who are alien in race, language
and sentiment to them. They should
have the chance to vote on the ques-
tion -aetehr they are to be joined
to New Mexico. Their natural right
to govern themselves is as good as
that of the people of any other Ameri-
can state or territory—as good as that
cf the colonists of 1775.
The real argument for joint state-
hood is based on the assumption that
the Arizonians, reinforced by the
growing English-speaking element la
New Mexico, will eventually be dom-
li.ant. in the joint state, if it is admit-
ted, and that there will never be suf-
ficient population to warrant the ad-
mission of two states. As a matter of
fact, if there is to be any state there,
it must be but a single state.
But it will no do to asume too much
in sealing the fate of these people.
If the Arizonians would rather remain
a territory than take the chance of
coming uppermost eventually in the
iomt state, they should have the
chance to say so. Better leave both
New Mexico and Arizona out of the
Union for another generation than
bring in om-half of the region und^r
bondage to the other hall.—New York
