Saunders read a short speech in op
position to the bill; that the use of the
military is necessary to secure fair elec

Whyte said the political clauses of
the bill were not extensive enough to
meet his views, which were opposed to
all Federal interference, civil or mikV
tary, in State affairs. In his judgment
there is no such thing as a national
election. Elections are either State or
municipal. Senators and Representa

The Death f Mr. B. Frank WIImh
The announcement in Tuesdav morn
ing's Observer of the sudden death the
previous night of Mr. B. Frank Wilson,
fell upon the community with all the
force of an electric shock. His popu
larity was universal. All classes of our
people admired and esteemed him, and
very many, who were bound to him by
no lies ot blood, teit in ins death a per
sonal bereavement Mr. Wilson was a
man not only of the most lovable and
amiable disposition ; he was more than
this: to a high and chiyalric spirit geni
ality of manner, and great sweetness of
temper, he added a greater number of
the Christian' graces than are often
found combined in one person, and
hence it was that while he was general
ly beloved in the community he was no
less generally admired and respected.
fn.- x ' r i t
: a line wasaiioweu us jnoiiuay uiut
only to record the fact of his death. The
circumstances leading to the discovery
of it may be briefly adverted to here:
lie did not appear at tea, out it was sup
posed that he was at the house of some
friend. Late at night he was still ab
sent and had not been seen. His room
door was tried and found to be locked.
The kev could be seen on the inside. A
ladder was procured and an entrance to
tbe room made through a window, when
the body was found lying cold upon the
floor. It was half-dressed, indicating
that Mr. Wilson was preparing to go
out when the attack came upon him.
Physicians were summoned and these
agreed that life had at that time been
extinct for six hours.

body, signed a paper setting forth that
"death was caused by a rupture of some
of the blood vessels of the brain, thus
producing apoplexy." This also was
the verdict of the jury.
The funeral services look place yes
terday morning at the First Presbyteri

sistent and devoted member. The ser
vices were largely attended, and the
sermon of the pastor was one of his
mo3t eloauent efforts, uniting with a
beautiful tribute to the dead an urgent

ft Is possible to da this even in regions of eoun
try where miasma is most rife, and where the
periodic fevers which It causes assume their most
formidable types. The immense popularity of
Hostetter's Stomach Bitten is very largely attribu
table to the fact of Its efficacy as a remedy for
chills and fever, bullous remittents, and as a pre
ventive of the various forms of malarial disease.
In those portions of tbe West and South where
complaints of this nature prevail, and in the
Tropica, it is particularly esteemed for the pro
tective influence which tt exerts; and Unas been
very widely adopted as a substitute for the danger
ous and comparatively ineffective alkaloid, sul

among the last to concede its merits, and the em

received have added to the reputation it has ob
tained at home and abroad.
