attempt was made to wreck the
passenger and freight tram on the
Carolina Central Pailroad which
left Charlotte lor this city at -.15
o'clock Monday evening. The
wreckers had removed a rail from

running slowly at the time, and
only two box cars and the engine
were thrown (rom the track. 1 he

Mr. Kwart asked why these old roads
were so bitterly fighting this bill if it
was a matter uf indnTerence to them.
Mr. Holt said it waj because these

Mr. Worth spoke in favor of the bill.
Mr. Ewart also spake in its favor.
He attacked Mr. Holt, charging him
with imftcision. with voting tirst for,
and then against, the bill. In this gnat
fight Mr. Holt and Mr. York were on
the side of the corporations against the
people. He said that stction 5. for

vote, provided that the commission
should prevent irright discrimination.
He made a bitter attack upon the rail

metho Is of some of them.
Mr. York thereupon renewed his mo

House voted. The result was as follows:

that Kspublican lawyers had affected

Mr. Stewart, denounced Mr. Ewart's
remark as unworthy of a gentleman.
He said Kwart had congressional as

pased by the Senate this afternoon for
strengthening the coast defenses pro
posed to put c's.COO.UOO at the disposal
uf the Secretary of War and 6S.liOO.C00
at the disposal of the Secretary of the
Navy, the money to be applied exclu
sively to the construction of modern
irmy and navy ordnance. An amend-
meni appropriating the further sum of
S".ij0?,oij0 for the construction of forti
fications and other works of coast de
fense was also adopted, making the
aggregate s-.l .OOO.TX'O. These measures
were passed by a practically unanimous
vote. There is. however, not the least
expectation that they will pass the
House. The conference committee on
the fortifications bill, which has held
numerous sessions, eoems now to be
approaching the completion of its la
bors. It was stated in this correspond
ence some weeks since that the com
mittee would in all probabilitv even
tually settle upon a sum approximating
cu.uuu.oou. mis can now be reiterated,
and the report of the committee will in
all probability be made within a week
or ten days. The sum mentioned will
be applied in about equal proportions
for the construction of heavy ordnance
for the army and navy, the House
eonferre.-s. at the head of whom is Mr.
Randall, In recommending the adoption
of this report by the House, will con
sider that it is as far as they can go at
this session, and therefore, as said, it
not be anticipated that any serious con
sideration will be given to the Senate
bills passed this afternoon.
SL. A TOR-ELECT REAGAN.
Representative Reagan, of Texas, has
returned very much elated over the
prospect of leaving the House for a six
years term in the Senate. He says his
bath, over which so much fun was
made, did not hurt him with the people .
of Texas, but rather elevated him in
their favor, ne says in the recent sen
atorial contest in Texas there was no
ill-feeling between any of the candi
dates, who were all polite and courte
ous to each other and to each other's
friends, and that there are no resent
ments to survive the contest. He
thinks the Texas delegation will rec
ommend to the President a citizen of
that Commonwealth for appointment
on the interstate commerce commission.
EXTOLLING PROF. BELL.
ihe Supreme Court of the Cnited
States will take a recess tomorrow tor
the telephone cases, Mr. Dickinson, of
the Bell counsel, pictured Prof. Bell as
a public benefactor and philanthropist,
who had been most shamefully perse
cuted, and he criticised the Department
of Justice for creating, as he said, an
annex to the department to a?8ist in
this persecution of a good man.
SENATOR DECK l-NDIGNANT.
A friend of Senator Beck walked into
his committee-room a few days ago, and
to his surprise found the Kentucky
statesman in a towering rage, gazing at
a letter he held in his hand. '-What do
you think of thin for an insultV" he ex
claimed, after greeting his friend. "I
don't know what some of my constitu
entstakejne for. This letter is from a
young man who lives near my home,
and he has the cheek to offer me ten
per cent of his salary for the first year
if I secure him an appointment in the
railway messenger service. This is
a sample of some of the letters we get.
I have received a lot of such otfers. and
might make a fair salary if a Democrat
had any show, but he hasn't.''
MK. SHERMAN' CAUGHT NAPPING.
Senator Sherman, President of the
Senate, is recognized as one of the most
astute and wide-awake men in public
life. He was today, however, actually
caught sapping in the Vice-President's
chair. Senator Morgan, of Alabama,
was delivering one of his usually long
but eloquent speeches on the Eads ship
railway bill. There were but few Sena
tors in the chamber at the time, and
the Alabama Senator was reading a long
list of statistics. One of the pages
looked toward the presiding officer's
chair and discovered Mr. Sherman with
his head bowed low, enjoying "forty cr
more winks."' He dozed for about ten
minutes, when he was finally aroused
by one of the Alabama Senator's flights
of eloquence, in which he shouted "Mr.
President" with considerable emphasis.

Every particle of blood wbichv

deranged they cannot rid the blood
of its killing poison. The thousand
little hair-like sewer tubes of tht:t':
kidneys very easily get blocked np

they corrupt instead of purifying
the blood. Kidney disease may- :,
exist, and yet no pain occur in that
organ, because it is deficient in

The Brompton Hospital investi
gation showed that 52 per cent, of '
the victims of consumption were
afflicted with deranged kidneys,
which permitted the uric acid poi
son to remain in the blood and irri
tate the lungs. This nric. acid is
always fighting every vital organ,
and if there be any inherent weak
ness in the lungs it inevitably causes
pneumonia, congh and consump
tion. The real cause of pulmonary
troubles being so authoritatively
shown to be faulty even though un

plains why, in order to master the '
dreaded consumption, one must rid - '
the blood of the uric acid irritant
which inflames and burns np the

there is nothing equal to that great
