At Panama, Colombia, by
Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera
and Diarrhoea Remedy.
Dr. Chas. H. Utter, a promi
nent physician, of Panama, Co
lombia, in a recent letter states :
"Last March I had as a patient
a young lady sixteen years of
age, who had a very bad attack
of dysentery. Everything I
prescribed for her proved inef
fectual and she was growing
worse every hour. Her parents
were sure she would die. She
had become so weak that she
could not turn over in bed.
What to do at this critical mo
ment was a study for me, but I
thought of Chamberlain's colic,
'cholera and diarrhoea remedy
and as a last resort prescribed
it. The most wonderful result
was effected. Within eight
hours she was feeling much bet
ter ; inside of three days she
was upon her feet and at the
end of one week was entirely
well." For sale by Hood &

AN ARMED INCIDENT IN THE
So far from being hostile to
the negroes the Messenger has
the best of feeling for the good,
orderly, well behaved class.
The rowdies, rogues, rascals
and rapists arc held in detesta
tion by all eoutliers whites.
They have nothing to commend
them to any one. The Messen
ger did not read with satisfac
tion the movement on the part
of certain western mine owners
to coerce white labor by seek
ing to introduce southern ne
groes on the scene. It was
unfair to the white operatives
and unjust to the negroes, for
it was certain to breed trouble
and cause bloodshed. The ne
gro is not wanted in the west.
Many occurrences through forty
years have clearly shown that.
If the files of the diligent news
papers were examined scores of
incidents in thj west illustra
tive of dislike for the negroes
could be gathered. The other
day several hundred Alabama
negroes were taken northward.
The papers have given prompt
ly results. They did not get to
the mines, but what they met
with in Chicago was a foretaste
of severe treatment farther on.
In that great city 300 negroes
were ordered to return to their
southern homes. They were
told that at Melrose Park there j
were 300 armed men awaiting
their coming. They would not 1
Jje allowed to enter the village.
This is the cordial treatment
and warm sympathy south
hatiug journalists write about.
; The negroes would be safe in
Alabama, but only rifles would
receive them in the north,
i This event is not singular, for
' events have been quite as sig-
I nificant and unmistakable. The
Atlanta Constitution recalls this
."Several years ago a number
;of colored men from Alabama
ventured into Illinois for the
purpose of securing work.
They did not ask for a seat at
j the head of the table, nor, in
jdeed, did they suggest their
preference for even the lirst
table ; but they were willing to
'work for their daily bread.
, The fate which befell them was
! told in the powder and smoke
j of Puna and Virden."
j Chicago papers, or some of
'them, are particularly severe
J upon the south and are ready
to denounce and magnify the
"bad treatment" the negroes
receive in the south. There
are newspapers of great inllu
ence in that city of so much
'i magnitude that are forever
harping upon the negro and his
'rights in the south. But let
lain dare to come that way,
and he will find people "who
are forever criticising others
for their conduct toward the
colored man sit upon their
doorsteps, shotguns across their
knees, ready to give him warm
welcome," People who preach
the gospel of hate against the
?out!i are the first to prosecute
the barbaric method of intimi
dation and death by loaded Win
chesters. The Constitution
says of the finale :
Thef progress of the story
completes a most disappoint
ing narrative. Some of the
colored men, thoroughly alarm
ed, made their way to the chief
! of police, called for protection,
'which he could not give them.'
'Out of Melrose Park,' says the
dispatch, 'the armed citizens
remained x on watch until as
sured the negroes were not
coming, when they dispersed.
The glorious victory of equal
rights had been fought and
won ! The man and brother had
been held back and told to re
turn to his haunt in the south."

May She Win It.
It is the sincere wish of
thousands that the widow of
Robert G. Ingersoll will win
the suit which she has brought
lor the unpaid balance of a fee
h it was earned by her husband
just before his death.
Colonel Ingersoll was retained
as leading counsel in defense of
a will involving sB,ooo,oi>o.
He received $5,000 as a retain,
ing fee and was promised $95,-
000 more if he should win.
Ii was the last case in which
he appeared and he conducted
it with marked ability as he did
ever)- case lie undertook. The
jury gave a verdict for Colonel
lngersoll's client, confirming
his title to .$8,000,000 otprop r
ty. Ingersoll died a few days
jlater and the ingrate for whom
.he had d.me such valuab'o ser
vice refused to pay the bulatne
of the fee.

years before his death he had a

of his clients took advantage of
his good nature to swindle him.
Still he received enough money
to have made him a very rich
man had he not been so lavish
in his benevolence and so
thoughtless of business oppor
tunities. He was constantly
giving to this charity and that,
setting some unfortunate fellow
on his feet, £>r furnishing some
friend with money for business
ventures that failed. He could
resist no appeal for help and

One incident, of the many
that might be given, illustrates
the unselfishness of his friend
ship. When ex-senator Dorsey,
cf Arkansas, was indicted for
complicity in the star route
frauds early in the administra
tion of President Arthur he
emplo) r ed Ingersoll to defend
him. Not one word was said
about the fee. Dorsey had
been his friend and Ingersoll
threw his whole soul into Dor
sey's defense. The trial was
one of the most famous ever
had in this country, continuing
every week day for more than
four months and ending in the
acquittal of Dorsey and his
On both sides there was a
great array of distinguished
counsel. The late Richard T.
Merrick, of Washington, was
chief counsel for the govern
ment and there were on either
side lawyers of national reputa
tion, but lngersoll's wit, elo
quence and persistency made
him by far the most conspicuous
iigure in the illustrious group.
There were many dramatic
episodes in the trial. One day
Judge Merrick insulted Colonel
Ingersoll. Ingersoll seized a
huge cut glass inkstand that
lay on the table in front of him
and would have struck Merrick
with it had not Judge Carpen
ter, of South, one of lngersoll's
associates in the case and a man
of gigantic physique, caught his
arm just as he was about to
hurl the heavy missile. After
the trial Dorsey asked Ingersoll
to name his fee. He laughed
the matter aside and though the
request was repeated on several
occasions Ingersoll changed the
Several months after Dor-
acquittal he met Ingersoll
in New York and asked him to
dinner. When the dinner was
over Dorsey, stating that lie had
barely time to catch the train for
his ranche in New Mexico, hand
ed Ingersoll a large envelope
which he said contained a sub
ject for his lawyer's considera
tion but asked him to open it
lugersoll carried the envelope
in his pocket several hours and
as he prepared to retire that
night it fell on the floor. In
gersoll picked it up, opened it
and found enclosed a registered

With it was a note from Dorsey
containing these words : "I beg
