The strike situation in this district
is very simple, all the men having gone
out immediately on receipt of the word

was believed, the committee reported,
that the preeident and cabinet were

auch action received the support of
public eentiment. A resolution was
offered, oiling that our increased export

of tbe large part of our industrial
prosperity, thai, in the absence of
speoial trade treaties with foreign
nations, we may soon experience a
serious decline in export products, that
Canada is our nearest and in some respects our best foreign market, and

lung ago when some postal affairs were
being discussed in connection with the
erection of the new pos.otl.ee lmilsliny

ou this subject by the statement thai
tlie mail by Dr. k V. Pierce amounted
daily to something over 1,500 jiieces.
Of course this is nut a common case, lie-

invites sick women lo consult him l.y

perhaps tlle supreme sen-ice of all. For
