THE DONAH-CUNNINGHAM AFFAIR.
Mi I r- II
Considerable interest 'Has leeu ex
cited by the lately published statement
in reference to a difficulty at Neosho,
Mo., between P. Donan, the well-known:
beau and journalist, and"L.-P. Cunning-i
ham, .a lawyer and" railroad man, of
Neosho. The Observer published the
first statement of the transaction, sub
sequently .published, a traveler's ver
sion, and announced its purpose to pub
lish Col. Dorian's version as early as
it could get it. A copy of the Benton
ville (Ark.) Adva?ice, of February 22d,
containing this statement, over Cot Do
nan's signature, has been placed in our
hands by a gentleman of this city, who
wrote to Col. D. for it. Col. Donan says :
For.tlie first time ill 'my lrfe. I have
recently experienced what it is, in bor
ber phrase, to let a scoundrel "get the
drop" on me, and, for the first time,
have appealed to the laws of the coun
try for redress of a personal wrong.
After detailing a number of circum
stances which had led to his newspa
per attacks upon Cunningham, Col. Do
nan goes on to say :
Friday, February 7th, while stop
ping at the same hotel with Cun
ningham, in Neosho, I received a
message from him asking to see
me in his room. Unarmed and ut
terly unsuspecting, I walked into his
room;- spoke to- hirrr,and- xarefessTjr
dropped: rnys$ inf; pe chamj pajtially
turning my back to him as I did so. In
a moment I found a cocked revolver
at my head, with a demand that I sigrt
some paper on the table instantly or
have my brains blown out. Standing
as the would-be assassin was partly
behind me, one glance satisfied me that
it would be impossible to knock the pis
tol from his hand, and satisfied me that
he meant assassination, for which I
gave him credit for just sufficient cour
age. Sitting down, unarmed, with his
cocked revolver to my head in such a
positiort that I could not possibly
reach it! he had "got the drop" on me
completely ; so I simply said: "Certain
ly, under the circumstances, I think I
would sign almost anything;" and sign
ed it without knowing or caring what
it was, just as I would nave signed a note
lor fifty thousand dollars, or surrender
ed my purse to a James Boy or other
highwayman, under similar circum
stances. It was my first experience of the
kind, and I am free to admit that there
is a powerfully pursuasive influence
on an unarmed man in a cocked six
shooter, at eighteen inches range, even
in the hands of the most cowardly as
sassin. I promptly turned my dastardly as
sailant over, like any other common
criminal, to the hands of the law. He
was arrested and bound over to appear
at the circuit court in Neosho last week,
with the result appearing in another
By reference to the local department
of the Advance we see that the grand
lury ot .Newton county the county irr
which Neosho is situated declined to
find an indictment against Cunning
ham. Col. Donan continues:
I had no idea what it was I signed,
though I suppose, and have since heard
that it purported to be some sort of a
vindication of Cunningham's character.
But I think he and the company that
employs him will find that no so-called
"vindication,"' got by the assassin's or
highwayman's art, will vindicate be
fore the clear-headed? honest, fraud
hating people of Arkansas the reputa
tion of a man who has such a record as
that from which I shall now proceed to
exhibit a few sample slugs of villainy.
The colonel then proceeds to unfold
his assailant's alleged record, interlard
ing his story with epithets and tilings,
the whole constituting one of his aver
age specimens of word-slingings. As
the story of Cunningham's public and,
private character is of no interest to
our people, we publish only so much of
this article as is personal' to "Tol.'D'o-'
nan himself. ' " .

. Congress end the President.
Baltimore Sun Washington Letter of the 7th.
A number of leading Democrats,
members of both Houses, and others.
have been in formal consultation with
regard to the course to pursue if the
President should undertake to carry
out the views and wishes of the stal
wart portion of the Republican party.
The sentiment of those present was
that the effort should be to make the
session as short as possible; that it
would not be profitable to protract the
session if there should be the appear
ance of irreconcilable antagonism be
tween the President and Congress. It
was suggested that the first thing to be
done would be to incorporate in one
bill the repeal of the juiors' test oath,
with perhaps a new provision for the
proper selection of United States jurors,
the exclusion of troops from the polls,
and the repeal of the election laws;
that if the President should veto this
bill, to attach it to one of the appropri
ation bills ; that then, if the President
vetoed the appropriation bill, for Con
gress to immediately adjourn, and not
remain in session to continue any strug
gle over the matter; that if the Presi
dent then called another extra session
to go through the same form" of pro
ceedings, and if he repeated his vetoes
to adjourn again. The belief wTas, how
ever, expressed that the President
would not be so obstinate in this mat
ter as he has indicated. This will ap
pear hereafter. The matters spoken of
may be discussed more fully and more
formally in the Senate Democratic cau
cus which will meet on Saturday, the
15th, provided the time is not all occu
pied in the more important business of
parcelling out the spoils. It is general
ly anticipated among leading Demo
crats that, notwithstanding interested
report to the contrary, all the Demo
cratic members-elect of the House will
be on hand on the 18th of March, with
possibly not more than one or two ex
ceptions. In every State an active man
has been designated to look after the
members and see that nothing is left
undone to have them all on hand.
Ease Attainable by the Rheumatic.
Yes, although .they may despair of relief, it is
attainable by rheumatic sufferers, for there is a
remedy which carries off, by means of increased
activity of the kidneys Important channels for
blood purification the acrid element to which
pathologists the most eminent attribute the painful
symptoms a theory completely borne out by urin
ary analysis. The name of this grand depurent is
Hostetters, a preparation, likewise celebrated as a
remedy for constipation, which causer contamina
tion of the blood with the bile and a certain
means of rertef tn" dyspepsia, fever and ague, and
nervous aumeriti It is. perhaps, the finest tonic
extant, and is highly recommended as a medicinal
stimulant by distinguished physicians and analysts
who pronounce it to be eminently pure and very
beneficial. The press also endorses It.
A Legitimate Triumph in Medicine.
Dread and despair fall upon the community
when a terrible epidemic, like the cholera or yel
low ferer, suddenly desolates our homes: yet, all
the while, a more insidious, but no less fatal foe,
enters thousands of households every year and
carries off the flower of the family In the early flush
of manly youth and budding womanhood. People
call It. consumption, -or "decline." it is not. in
most cases, the tubercular phthisis or consumption
of the ldngs, which, is the peculiar malady in cli
mates like those of the British Islands and New
England,, bo a general decay or arrest of the vital
processes of nutrition. All the doctors agree that
there is no remedy, for this but Cod Liver 01 i but
they are constantly' met by the obstacle or Inability
on the part of the patient to swallow or retain it.
This repulsion is entirely overcome by Scott's

But worse than this, it Is the Index of a disordered
liver, of a liver that needs arousing and regulating.
The remedy is at hand, prompt, efficacious. A
course of Hostetter's Stomach Bitters will expel the
misdirected bile from the blood and divert it into
the proper ehannel,open the bowels.remove the dys
peptic symptoms which invariably accompany bil

tendency to dangerous congestion of the liver,
which must always exist when the skin and whites
of the eyes assume this yellow hue. The pains

blade, the nausea, furred state of the tongue, and

remedied by this sovereign corrective, which In ad
