Still Playing The Came.
The Sew Denver Ledge uses considerable space this -veck explaining "the
treatment received at Silverton" by the
New Denver baseball (layers, and calls
the pame -i "cooki li" one. Considering
thai Cook, Iho visitors' pitcher, was bit
fer nine rims in one innings the Ledge
is probably correct. The Silveiton nine
di.l not win the (tamothrough Itsalledged
ringers, as the visitors male 14 tuns,
tniough to win if they bad been able to
p!,iy on the bases end in the field. Tliey
were badly beaten before Petty went into
Ihe  box, and  they  know if.   The New
Denver ball players take their beating | Pauper's Dream on Goat  Mountain,
like schoolboys.   Try to act like men.
Talking about trusts, the question
arises, aro they a good thing for Ihe
people or not? Opinions appear to he
badly divided on the snhject In this
Section the trust has proved a good thing
and has been the means of holding most
of our population here where they are
acquainted and can get trust; Without
trust most of us would have starved to
death. If n man won't trust in this
country be might, as well go out of
business for most of tl e business done is
on the trust plan. We trust in each
other; in God; in the country, aid
largely in luck. Yea, trust is a good
thing, if you are getting trusted.
A man came up to us tbe other day
and asKed us who was the sheriff cf this
county. Now a man who ipso innocent
as that has got no business nut in this
western country where dodging the
sheiift has become an exact science. Not
to know tho sheriff by sight is a crime
no old timer would be guilty of. Why a
sheriff is liable to be loaded with writs,
six-shooters, i xinelitiiitui papers and
kindred knick-knacks any of which
western men have an antipathy for and
will not remain in the same neighborhood with unless detained by force.
We went up lo exnfliine a quartz
prospect, the other day, so as to get ont a
boom addition of Tin; ?ii.vertonian, and
after crawling up snowslides, barking
onr thins and jarring down enou.h
slide-rock to macadamise all the roads in
Ontario wo Anally reached the difceovery
shaft of the bonanza. It was perched
upon the apex of an almost inaccessible
peak seven miles from no where, and
the enthusiastic owuer informed ns that
there were milti ms in it. We did not
contradict him as ne were alone and he
uns bigger than ns. We sat down on
the edge of llle bole to rest and feast our
e.ies on the thiity cents worth of mineral

the overalls with a three weeks beard on
his face would do with the million, when

Philadelphia, May 20.—The Pre^iyterian
general assembly lias taken another step toward revising the confession of faith by rejecting the minority report which had been
offered aa a substitute amendment for the
majority report. The vote was 271 to 234.
Tlie recommendation is as follows:
"We recommend that a committee bc instructed to prepare a brief summary of the
reformed faith, bearing the same relation to
the confession which the shorter catechism
bears to the larger catechism, and formed
on the general model of the consensus creed
prepared for the general assembly of 18(12
or the articles of faith of the Presbyterian
church of Kngland, both of which documents are appended to the committee's report and submitted to the assembly to Ih-
referred to the committee appointed."
With the consent of the utweinbly the motion waa changed so that the vote was
taken.on the question of striking out the
recommendation from the majority report
stead of accepting the minority report aH
a substitute. During the discussion ,.i' the
subject Moderator Minimi gave the gavel
to Vice Moderator Pitcalrn while he addressed the commissioners in favor of the

own brains. The woman was rescued from

H»iber. She said she and Jenkins hml

Can Make the Journey Safely—Im-
menae Crowda limbered tu See the
Party Depart—No Formal Cere-
m.nii.n at Depot.
San Francisco, May 26.—The presidential party, after a sojourn of
nearly two weeks In this city, left for
Washington a few minutes after 10
o'clock this morning. The physicians
In attendance on Mrs. McKinley held
their last consultation, and after they
had announced their decision that
Mrs. McKinley was strong enough to
endure the transcontinental Journey,
preparations for the departure were
rapidly made. Mrs. McKinley seemed
elated at the prospect of scon being
at home. She was conveyed from tho
Scott residence to the Oakland ferry
In a closed carriage over a circuitous
route, which was chosen so that the
Invalid might pass over only smoothly
paved Btreets, the jarring basalt
blocks which are laid on many streets
being avoided. She was accompanied
by the president, Dr. Rixey and a
trained nurse, the rest of the party
proceeding to the starting point In a
more direct way.
An Immense crowd had assembled
at the ferry depot of the Southern
Pacific, the wide expanse afforded by
the junction of Market and East
streets being a solid mass of humanity, through which the police with dli-
Acuity kept open a passageway for
the president and his party. Heads
were uncovered as the carriage in
which Mrs. McKinley rode approached, and there was a visible effort to refrain from an outburst of
applause as the vehicle, with drawn
curtains, drove slowly through the
throng. All respected the frail condition of the sufferer and enthusiasm
was suppressed.
There were no formal cernioniei at
the depot. Goodbyes were exchanged
h>; the president, cabinet members
and other members of the party with
the friends who had come to wish
them God speed, and the distinguished
travelers boarded the ferryboat Oakland, which made a special trip for
their accommodation. The carriage
containing Mrs. McKinley was driven
onto the lower deck of the boat and
the curtains partly raised, so that she
might catch a glimpse of the bay and
Golden Gate.
As the steamer drew out of the slip
hats and handkerchiefs were waved,
and as It swung clear Into the stream
the shipping craft In the harbor dipped
their colors In salute. Tumultuous
cheers then broke forth on shore and
were borne across the waters as San
Francisco's final farewell to President
McKinley, his wife and the accompanying members of his official family.
At the Oakland mole, where the
train was In readiness, precautions
had been taken to prevent a crowd.
The Inclosure was carefully roped off.
Mrs. McKinley was tenderly helped,
out of the carriage by the presided,
and when she had been made comfortable in her car he appeared upon
the platform and waved adieu to the
throngs beyond the rope^i.
Colfax, Cal.—After leaving Sacramento the president's train ascended
the Sierra Nevada mountains, rounding the snowcovered peak of Cape
Horn just before dark. There were nn
incidents of the trip during the afternoon. The train is due to reach Og-
den tomorrow evening ai. (i:30 p. in.

Middelshurg, Transvaal Colony, May 20.
—The commandos of Kritainger, Van Rcc-
nan and Fouche debouched yesterday before
dawn and crossed the railroad. They darted
southward, raiding the more populous districts of Cape Colony. Fouche's command
has neen resting many weeks in the mountains,
Carnegie'* Glftt
London, May 28.—"We trust in Scottish pride to rise ln its wrath against
this Invasion of the almighty dollar,"
says the Review of last week, commenting upon Andrew Carnegie's munificence to Scotland university.
"Many of the oldest and best families In Scotland," continues the periodical, "send their sons to Scottish
universities where they pay the fee",,
like the sons of their humblest neighbors, neither more nor less. It Is to
be believed that this will continue If
the fees are paid for them by Mr.
Carnegie. Imagine the duke of Hamilton, Cameron or Lochiel or McDonald of the Isles allowing his heir to
get education at tho cost of an American ironmonger. We shall next hear
of some Chicago porkpacker proposing to buy up Oxford and Cambridge
and dictating terms ot admissions and
the subjects to be taught, or of Boss
Croker forming a combination to control ■ university on Tammany principles ln the mind of the rising generation of cockneys."
The 8t. James Gazette In an editorial headed "The Anglo-Saxon Millenium," commenting on a pessimist's
proposal that "Yankee Doodle" be
made the national anthem; that the
American language be made compulsory ln the schools and that the coronation of J. Plerpont Morgan he arranged for June or July next, says:
"But there Is a bright side of the
Americanization of this Insignificant country. It ought to make
war Impossible. How can the
patriotic American suffer from
Anglophobia when he loves England so much that he wants to be her
owner? How could he sink merchant
ships In which his own money ls Invested? War would ruin his Industrial
enterpi \\n. stage, press and locomotive companies, philanthropic
schemes, aristocracy, race riding—In
fact everything except our agriculture
which has ceased to exist."
No other article used in the domestic

Everett, Wash., May 27.—Special
from Skykomlsh. Wash.:
A frightful accident occurred on the
line of the Great Northern railway,
which resulted In the demolition of an
engine, almost half a train of loaded
merchandise cars and a large steam

engine, but the momentum waa too
great. When within a few feet of the
then deserted push car he and his fireman were horrified to see can after can
of giant powder piled high on top of
the car. It was too late to even think
of jumping and the two heroically stood
their ground.
A second later and the pilot crashed
into the push car. Explosion after explosion rapidly followed, each succeeding one being more terrific, If possible,
until finally, when the smoke had
cleared, the awfnlness of the havoc
created was realized.
The engine was literally torn to fragments, her boiler raised clear of all
other parts, while her great trucks
were hurled up the steep mountain
side for a considerable distance. The
steam shovel, which stood on a siding
nearby, was torn to splinters and will
be fit for nothing but scrap.
About 75 yards from the scene of the
terrible explosion stood the shack of
the track walker. It, also, was utterly
demolished, but, strange to say, the
track walker himself, who was ln the
shack, was but slightly scratched.

Have you ever stopped to think that
the position of a saleswoman in a
large dry goods store i.s a particularly
trying one? Working lung hours, lieing compelled to stand most of the
time, nnd being expected to look
pleasant regardless ol suffering whioh
she may be enduring, is it any wonder
thut weak, nervous women find it impossible to follow this occupation?
Everyone will be interested in the experience nf Miss Nellie M. Tonilinsun

of the large dry goods stores of that
city.    She snys:

One of the curious things to attract
the attention of visitors to Holland Is
the leaning of a great majority of tho
houses. To see Certain parts of Rotterdam and Amsterdam It would seem as
though there were no houses there
Mantling straight and that great mini-
jers of them must collapse, Iu buildings side by side some will lean for-
wurtl, Minn, backward and others side-
wise. Their old cracked walls suggest
thut It is the result of age, while, of
course, it is principally due to the soft,
wet ground ou which tbey ure con'
There tire, however, ninny buildings
iu thete cities which were originally
and unmistakably built out of the
straight Foi Instance, not far from
the Hotel Vleux-Doelen, where the delegates to the pi-ace conference stayed,
there is nil extension being built to one
of the churches, und, although the
wulls are uot yet completed, they lean
outward more than twelve Inches.
Another Instance of this is found in
some of the corner houses, whose walls
leuu out over each street. In many
cases uew bouses are evidently put up
to match the houses alongside. Strangely enough, though, there are comparatively few Cases on record of collapse.
At Fninkfort-on-the-Malu, though, of
course, such construction ls not common ln Germany, there Is one street In
which two houses on opposite sides of
the street lean over so far that their
roofs meet. In oue of these houses
Lord Rothschild was born. In Paris,
on the other hand, lt Is noticeable that
the builders Intentionally construct the
houses so that they lean backward
slightly to add to their stability.
But almost In Ihe center of Paris
there Is one big stone building which
leans out fully three and one-half feet
over the sidewalk. So solid, however,
are the Paris buildings that this one Is
claimed to be safe.

Salt Lake, May 27.—The windstorm
which swept over Nevada, Utah,
Southern Idaho, Wyoming and Colorado recently did damage that will
run Into the hundreds of thousands
of dollars. It resulted In almost complete prostration of telegraph and telephone service ln the states affected,
and for nearly 24 hours during the
height of the storm the lntermountaln
legion was practically cut off from
the rest of the world.
The storm was severest In eastern
Nevada and Utah and ln the fertile
valleys in the northern part of Utah
Widespread devastation resulted. When
the storm wus at its height last night
the wind at some points reached a
velocity of 50 miles an hour.
At ugden the storm was felt worst.
Here the wind tore roofs from a number of buildings, including the Baptist church, completely demolishing
barns nnd outbulluings and scattered
them far and wide, uprooted many
shade trees and tore other to pieces,
blew ln plate glass windows in busl-
nes blocks and prostrated electric
light wires, so that after midnight
the city was in darkness. The damage In Ogden probably will reach
? 100.000.
Klve Points. Logan, Smlthfleld,
Hooper and other places the damage
was very great. Hundreds of fruit
trees were completely stripped. The
force -of the wind was so terrific
around Logan and Hooper that tomato vines were swept entirely from
fields. It Is estimated that fully half
of the crop was destroyed. Around
Hooper the sweep of the wind blew
away the plowed ground to the full
depth that the plows had entered the
earth, rendering the land practically
useless. Along the north shore of
Great Salt lake the wind practically
picked up the dry sand in great quantities and hurled it across the country
with terrific force, half burying the
railroad tracks for miles.

Rheumatism is due to an excess of ncid In the
blood. When this escapes through the pores of the
skin, as it often does, it produces some form of skin
eruption —some itching disease like Kczcnia or
Tetter —but when these little tubes or sweat glands
are suddenly closed by exposure to cold nnd sudden
chilling of thc body, then the poisons thrown off by pi
the blood, finding no outlet, settle in membranes, *
muscles, tissues and nerves. These parts become greatly inflamed, feverish and
hot' dacKer-like, maddening pains follow in quick succession, the muscles become
extremely tender, the nerves break down and the sufferer is soon reduced to a state
of helplessness nnd misery. This ncid poison penetrates the joints and seems to
drv out the natural oils, and the legs, amis and fingers become so stiff and sore
that every movement is attended with excruciating pains.
Liniments, plasters, electricity and baths, while their use may give temporary
ease cannot be called cures, for the disease returns with every change of the weather,

Mrs. Edward Stevens of Carhtage,
N. Y., writes as follows:
"I now take pleasure in notifying
you that my husband has entirely recovered from Ccatnrrh. He is a well
man, today, thanks to you and Peruna. He took six bottles of your medicine as directed, and it proved to be
just the thing for him. His apjie-
tite is good und everything he eats
seems to agree with him. His cough
has left him and he is gaining in
Ilesh, and seems to be well every way.
I hope others will try your medicine
and receive the benefits that we
have."—Mrs. Edward Stevens.
When the catarrh reaches the
throat it is called tonsilitis, or larny-
gitis. Catarrh of the broncihal tubes
is called bronchitis; catarrh ofthe
lungs, consumption. Any internal
remedv that will  cure catarrh in one
location will cure it in any other location. This is why Peruna has become so justly famous in the cure of
catarrhal diseases. It cures catarrh,
wherever located. Its cures remain.
Peruna does not palliate; it cures.

cured me of catarrh of the head of several years' standing, and if my husband feels badly, or either of us catch

The decision of the supreme couit
is that the constitution does not follow the flag. This decision, the most
important that great tribunal has ever
made, will be handed down next Monday. The decision Is ln favor of the
government, but by a divided bench.
There will be at least five individual
opinions, but some of these are concurring opinions, expressing the views
of the writers more fully and particularly than Is done in the opinion of
the majority.. The court goes back
to the period in which the republic
was formed and the constitution
framed and endeavors to ascertain
what was the Intent of the founders of
the nation.
The opinion of the majority of the
court disposes of the uniform taxation
clause of the constitution, which has
been invoked by all the appellants In
these cases In the following manner:
The framers of the constitution, In
wrting that claase, had no thought
of Its application to territorial possessions. No such question as Is now
presented had arisen ln their minds.
The elause which provides that all duties, imposts and excise shall be uniform throughout the United States,
the court holds, was placed in the
constitution as a result of the Jenl-
OUSles of the states which united In
forming the nation. It was Intended
to prevent any state or combination
of states securing advantages over
another or others to prevent the ports
of one state gaining preference over
those of another In the importation of
This rule of uniformity wns made
primarily for the states united, the
eourt holds, not for territories then
possessed or afterward acquired. The
constitutional requirement is satisfied
ns long as all duties on imports are
uniformly Imposed at all the ports
throughout the United States. The
advantage of this uniformity may be
extended to territories and possessions not states and not members of
the American union, but that Is for
congress to determine under the constitution.

the Dominion Government haa voted

C. P. R. wil) doubtleBS irnki) the refinery pay, but what benefit the miner
will have from the bounty is hard to
say under these circumstances. The
building of competing smellers would
lie choked oil", and it was to encourage
the smelting industry that the bonus
was passed. Another object was to
rescue the miner froni the clutch of an
American trust, but it will only enable tho C. P. R. to do somo more
njueezing. This company, it is certain,
will charge to the limit of endurance.

allow the mine operator enough profit
to ke<*p him at work, but it is intolerable that the whole Industry should lie
always at tlie mercy of one corporation.

perils and hardships appeal to the
adventurers or is it that the gambling
instinct in the human breast lures a
man into the solitude, trusting to his

There is some fascination, some inexplicable reason which tempts men of
so mauy different temperaments, habits

as that of the prospector.
