however, that the Republicans will

voting for any Republican who may
be named by the oppi nents of Senator

In Maryland the election of a Re

When the steamer Mariposa arrived
in port Saturday midnight with newsuf
the disaster to the Idaho, having on
board the two surviving members of
the crew, Captain Pot had this to say
regarding the storm on the lake and
the rest ne of the two men:
"It was about l-'::;o Saturday after
noon when 1 lirst lea.ne.l of the wreck
of the Idaho. We sighted a spar off to
the north with two men clinging to it.
We w ere running under a good head of
steam at the time, and I put on more
and headed for the spar.
"When 1 got near I was puzzled how
to help the men off. for I could not low
er a boat in such a storm. Finally I
circled about the spar until I ran along
side, when my men picked the poor fel
lows off. They had to drag them away
from the spar by fore ., for the men had
been there so long that their arms had
become numb and were twisted about
the mast and almost frozen fast to it."
William CiK, the rescued deck hand,
a swarthy, well built man 23 years old,
has sailed the lakes since he was a
youth. lie is mere intelligent than
the average seafaring man, and his
story of the disaster is a thrilling one.
"We left here Friday night, bound
for Chit ago, with a cargo of general
mei c handise," said he. "Everything
seemed all right until we got outside
the breakwater, and then we were
strutk by tin- vor:-t storm that I ever
saw. When the Hist big breaker struck
us we v. ere tossed up in the air like
a top, and a second later a big roller
came over the port bow and rolled
down amidships a foot deep.
"We moved slowly against the heavy
wind and sea. and whin we were well
up the lake we ft unl that the boat was
making water. I !- k . coming faster
and faster, and the bi:ge pumps were
put to work, but the wa.er gained, and
every minute the ship kept getting
less buoyant a ml the big combers con
tinued breaking over her.
"The water gained on the pumps ant1,
the buckets, and so, n the water put
the tires out. The only hope left us
was to run out the anchor and bring
her head up 0. the sea and lei her ride
out i!i,' gait. p. ut the sea was too
heavy, and instead of the anchor
catching with a Hi 1 n grip and bringing
Hie ship's brad up to tin storm with a
j.-rk it went too slow, and she simply
tumbled into the trough of the seas,
which br-ke over her in torrents. The
load was too much, ami after a moment
the ship keeled over to starboard and
went down, stern lirst.
"What became of my mates I don't
know. I rememb-r that the boats had
been loosened and that some of the men
were leady to take them if the vessel
went under, but no boat could have
lived for a minute in that terrible sea,
and if any of them did get in the boats
it was simply to be swamped as soon
as the hist wave struck them. May be
they did not leave the ship at all. 1 was
near the spar, and when the stern of
the vesel began to go under I went for
the rigging and went up as fast as I
could. Another man went with me the
second mate ami 1 thank the Lord
that he was with me, or I would have
"The hail ami sleet was coming down
in a cutting sheet, and we were covered
wiih ice in a few minutes, for though
the top of the spar on which we were
hanging was 2.". feet above the water,
the big waves struck us and broke
over us and the hail cut us like shot.
"1 .knew that it was about : o'clock
when we went clown, and it seemed
to me that daylight would never come.
For what seemed to be an age we hung
on to the rigging, and we twisted our
arms r.bout the s;ar anil let them
freeze in position, for otherwise we
would have fallen into the fearful sea.
"When daylight tame we could not
see a sail anywhere near us, and th.e
sea was as bad as ever. There did not
seem to be any chance of it going down.
Hour after hour we waited there, and
then we saw the Mariposa coming.
When she finally sighted us and we
saw her head for us I tried to tell my
mate, but I could not. and he lookel
at me with a happy leek on his face,
on the third trip around she ran right
alongside -ur spar and as she went
past a dozen mt n 1 cached for us. An in
stant lat, r we had passed the little
slit k on v.hi. h 1 and the mate had b-vn
hanging for aim.-s-t a day, although it
seemed a wi . k."
The sec. i:d mate. L-uis La force, told
a harrowing ::io:y to the crew of the
Marii.;a. Fe said that in the rush of
th na n 1'n-:.i the hold one of them, a

crew was frantic to get out of the place.
Six or eight, lie said, must have been

If passed, would have had the effect of
making Georgia a prohibition state.
The bill has been pending in the leg

A PIRATE'S CONFESSION.
Bloodthirsty Cook Confesses Double.
Murder 11 nil Arson at Sea.
Newport News, Va., Nov. 6. Th
United Sta'es steamship Lancaster
dropped anc hor in Hampton Roads yes
terday from Bahia. Brazil. In military
confinement on the warship are five
men of the schooner Olive Pecker,
whose captain, J. M. Whitman, of
Rockland, Me., and First Mate William
Saunders, of Sandy Cove, N. S., were
murdered at sea in August last. Tn
the ship's brig, closely ironed, is J.
Anderson, the schooner's cook, who is
the self confessed perpetrator of the
murders, and who afterwards set fire
to the vessel. Anderson last night gave
his version of the tragedy to the press,
lie admits the crimes, and from his
statement he is the sole murderer and
incendiary, his accomplices being forced
through fear to obey his orders.
The other five men of the Olive
Pecker's crew are William Horsburg,
Andrew F. March, Manuel Barriatt.
John Lend and M. Barstadt. The five
sailors are under the impression that
they are being held as w itnesses against
the cook, and will be expected to tes
tify that he murdered the captain and
the mate. It is more than probable,
however, that they will not only be
used as witnesses ainst the murderer,
but will be held and convicted on the
charge of firing a ship on the high seas.

Receiving Propositions For the Re
form of the Banking System.
THE PLAN OF JOHN 0. BULLITT.
It (JIvos Great Power to a Currenev
BoHid Icon posed or the President,
Secret r of the Treasury unci Comp
troller of the Currency.
Washington, Nov. 8. The monetary
commission is receiving, in answer to
its invitation, many interesting propo
sitions for reform of the banking and
currency systems of the country, and
among these is one from John C. Bul
litt, which, coming highly endorsed as
it does by financial authorities, has
commanded great attention and study.
Mr. Bullitt's plan touches every branch
of the problem before the commission,
and its provisions in outline are as fol
lows: That all of the outstanding currency
obligations, amounting to about $m0,
000,000, shall be taken up and can
celled, being replaced according to
business exigencies (under the direction
of a currency board composed of the
president, secretary of the treasury
and comptroller ef the currency) by t!
per cent bonds. There is to be but one
kind of currency, namely, national
bank notes, redeemable in gold at the
bank of issue and a selected bank of
reserve, and these notes are to be is
sued gradually to replace obligations
as the latter are retired. These notes
are to be secured by a deposit of 15
per cent of gold in the treasury, by 15
per cent gold in the bank vaults ami by
first lien upon all of the banks' assets,
as well as by a special provision giving
the government the right to assess all
national banks when needed to make
good notes of a defaulting bank, the
notes of which would then be redeemed
by the government.
A tax is to be laid upon the banks
to cover the expenses of the currency
board and the balance held to secure
redemption of notes in gold, but if this
exceeds $10,000,000 this surplus may be.
covered into the treasury to pay in
terest on United States bonds and for
general purposes. This tax should be
one-half of I per cent or 1 per cent per
annum, as the commission shall elect.
Power should be given to the banks
under permission from the currency
board to increase the note issue when
demand caused by unusual financial
emergencies, such increase to be sub
ject to a tax (to be determined from
time to time by the currency board)
upon the notes while in circulation, the
tax upon the notes to be at a rate
which would put a pressure upon the
banks to take up the notes when the
emergency has passed.
Silver and subsidiary coins should be
redeemed in gold by the United States
government when demanded. Tlie.se
amount to about $100,000,000.
No note should be issued for less than
National banks should be constrained
to exchange notes now out for new

Confer upon the currency board the
power to regulate the issue of bank
notes from time to time in lieu of the
government currency retired, and to
authorize new banks and branch banks
to be established.
As banking capital may be increased
by creation of new banks the currency
board should have power to adjust the
note issue, whether normal or extra
ordinary, between the new and old
banks no distinction being drawn be
The system of clearing house certifi
cates adopted by the banks in the large
cities in times of panic should be le
galized. K. O. Leech, vice president of a New
York bank, has also presented a paper.
He does not believe it nec essary to re
deem all of the silver coin and paper
in gold, as the wants of the people are
fully adequate to keeping in active
circulation the $4S0,000,000 of this money
now afloat. Mr. Leech favors the re
peal of the act of May 31, 1878, requir
ing the reissue of United States notes
coming into the treasury, and would
leave it optional with the treasury to
reissue these notes only in case of need.
This alone would insure the stability
of the gold standard.

Chicago. Nov. 8. William Kastner, a
cook, was held up by footpads when

value there they determined to rob him
of his speech. One of them placed a
revolver close to the victim's throat
and fired. The bullet cut through the

Though the rir-.reeat!e effects of Ca
tarrh are felt all the year round, cold and
disagreeab e weather ajrgravatcs the
disea e ami it is during the wiuter sea
sou that its severest form is felt. Each
succeeding year seems to intensify the
disease, so that it gradually fastens its
hold upon the sufferer with a grasp that
becomes firmer each season.
Catarrh often apjiears a ? only a cold at
firs , ami is hardly noticed. But gradu
ally the cold returns, and it is m-re
dif.icuittocure.and stays long rthau for
merly. Thcse symptoms c-inn t be mis
taken; they mark the fi r t appearance of a
disease that will develop in severity and
stubbornness, and which it is imtxissible
tocrre v, t h tti i local tn at ment of sprays,
wa.he;, and similar applications. Being
a disease of the blood, only a blood
reme.lv can have the slighter effect
upo.i it. S S.S. (Swift's Specific) is the
only cure for Catarrh, because it is the
oa y blood renudv which goes to the
seat of all obstinate and deep-seated
cits;? , and fo: e s out the disease.
Mr. T. A. Villiatns, a leading mer
chant of Spartaubur-, S. C, writer:
"For four years I had nasal catarrh,
and though '.he case v as a mild one at
fir t. it was not long until I noticed that it
v;as gradually growing wor e. Of course
I was under treatment of first-class phy
sicians, but Muir remedies were applied
locally, and the disease seemed to beget
ting a firmer hold on me all the while.
"After sp"iiding so muoh money for
treatment which proved to be all in
vain, I was urgeel to try S.S.S. This rem
edy proved to b the right out, foritgotat
the disease, an 1 a few bottb s cured me
pevj'ectly. Toe cure was a jerniauent
one, and I have not had a touch of the
disease for many years. Swift's Specific
is the onlv remedy that will have the
slighest effect upon Catarrh."
Sufiercrs from Catarrh should get a
start on the disease before the cold
weather aggravates it. Those who have
been relying upon 1 cal treatment will
find wint r weather is all that is
needed to show that the disease is still
with them. A course of S.S.S. (Swift's
Specific) will prove all assertions made
that it is the only cure for Catarrh; it goes
tof'e c.iiiwj of the trouble the blood
and forces out all traces of th: disease.
Swift's Specific is the o :ly remedy
which reaches real obstinate blood dis
eases; it cures Catarrh, Rheumatism,
Cancer, Contagious Iilood Poison, Ec
zema, Scrofula, and in fact every other
disease of the blood. It is guaranteed
and is the 011I3' blood remedy containing
no potash, mercury or other mineral.
