Berlin, Jan. 18.—An extra edi-
tion of the Refchsanzeiger was
published in honor of the day, the
25th anniversary oi the German
empire, by imperial decree.
The decree grants amnesty to
offenders whose sentences do not
exceed six weeks imprisonment or
150 marks fine.
The rescript begins with the re-
mark that the Emperor intends also
to pardon military offenders. It is
therefore presumed that imperial
pardon will be extended to civil
offenses and cases of conviction on
charge of Lese Majeste.
The imperial decree announces
foundation of the new Prussian order
the William order, which wil lbe
conferred upon men and women,
who rendered prominent services
of advancing the welfare and cul-
ture of the people in accordance
with recommendations contained in
a message of Emperor William I.
The first recipients of the order
are the press, ex-*mpress Frederick,
Grand Duchess Baden and Saxe-
Weimar, Prince Bismarck, Dr.
Miquel, minister of finance and
Baron Von Borlepsch, minister of
The German Celebration.
Berlin, Jan. 18.—Throughout
the German empire today, the
twenty-fifth anniversary of the
crowning at Versailles of King
William of Prussia, grandfather
of the present emperor, as emperor
of Germany, and consequent re-
establishment of the German empire
was celebrated in some firm or
other. The great event was the
gathering in the white hall of the
castle, where the emperor, surround-
ed by ministers of state, generals
of the army, admirals of the navy,
members of the diplomatic corps.
Kings and Princes, all in glittering
uniforms, made a speech from the
throne. He declared his grand-
father’s vow to protect the rights
of the empire and preserve peace
had, so far, been fulfilled.
The emperor appealed to all sec-
tions to sink party differences and
support him in promoting the great-
ness and prosperity of our beloved
Sergeant Charles Anderson, Fort
Frankfort, Ind., Jan. 18.—
Charles Anderson, sergeant in com
pany E, 23rd infantry, of regular
army stationed at Fort Clarke,
Texas, attempted suicide on the
eastbound Clover Leaf flyer when
near this city by cutting Bis throat
with a razor. His windpipe was
severed, yet he lived, breathing
through the wounds in his throat.
He cannot recover, however.
On his collar, which he had re-
moved and put in his pocket, the
following inscription was written:
‘‘I would return for trial, but
prefer death to the dishonor of
Of the crime indicated nothing
can be learned. From papers found
on him, it was learned that he had
been in the regular army since
1880. He had nearly $400 in his

Many a boy start*

his will is strong.
| If he has the bodily
strength to carry

I achievement. Bod-
ily strength and
health are his great-
est capital. Without
them he can hope
for nothing. How
many young men
and young women
are cut off ju»t when
the future seems
brightest and fullest of promise ! They are
taken away by the disease which causes
over one-sixth of all the deaths in the
world—the disease which doctors call con-
sumption. Consumption has been consid-
ered incurable, and the medical profession
has never made a greater mistake than this.
There is absolutely no reason in the world
why consumption should be fatal — why it
should be even serious. It is a disease of
case where the disease has been neglected
and improperly treated until it is stronger
than the body—until the body has become
so weak as to have lost the ability to recu-
perate. Dr. Pierce’s Golden Medical Dis-
covery will cure 98 per cent, of all cases of
consumption if used according to direc-
tions. It also cures all lingering coughs,
bronchia] and throat affections. There
is no reason why the child of consump-
tive parents need ever have consump-

They Will not be Admitted to State-
hood This Session.
Chicago, Jan. 18.—The Post’s
Washington special says: Disap-
pointment awaits the people of New
Mexico and Arizona. They have
been knocking for admission into
the union for many years, but the
decree has gone forth that their
prayers have been left unanswered
for another two years.
They can thank Speaker Reed
and his little combine tor the dose
of disappoinlment which has been
brewed lor their consumption. The
explanation offered is that it
deemed of the highest importance
to check any further growth of sil-
ver strength in the senate, and that
the best way to do that is to prevent
any increase of representation from
the mountain region. Therefore
the house committee on territories
will not report the bills for admis
sion of the territories named until
too late for action by this congress.
For Not Answering the Sugar In-
Washington, Jan. 18.—The
jury in the trial of Riverton R.
Chapman, a member of the New
York stock brokerage firm of Moore
and Schley, who refused to answer
questions put by the senate sugar
investigating committee, returned
a verdict of guilty today, after
being out all night.
The case will undoubtedly be
appealed to the court of appeals of
the District of Columbia, thence to
the United States supreme court,
whichever way the next high tribu-
il decides. The Chapman trial
was regarded as a test case and will
be followed by the trial of cores-
pondents Edwards and Scbriverand
Broker John W. MacArtney.
A RAYING MANIAC.
St. louis, Jan. 18.—Hearing o '
representatives of the different cities
working to secure the national pop-
ulist convention, that will meet
July 22nd next, was resumed this
morning. D. M. Fulweiter, of Ar-
kansas, spoke for Chicago. He was
followed by Dr. H. Taylor, Eugene
Smith, and F. J. Schutte, represent-
ing the business men of Chicago.
Schutte intimated that at least
$20,000 could be raised for the pop-
ulist cause if they were given
sufficient time to collect it. E. S.
Heisler and Jos. Schneider, who
spoke for Kansas City, Kansas,
said they were prepared to erect a
tent, sufficiently large to seat 20,-
000 people. They further stated,
should the convention be held there,
it would insure a populist victory
in the surrounding states.
Harry Tracey, D. E. Leidy, and
Mayor Holland spoke in behalf of
Dallas. When they finished the
committee went into executive ses-
Schneider, (of Kansas,) present-
ed a resolution which was adopted,
there only being three dissenting
votes, expressing “entire confidence

The reputation or El Paso as a
health resort Is already firmly estab-
lished. Thousands of Invalids have
found here the relief which they have
sought vainly elsewhere. Especially
Is this true In all cases of pulmonary
disease, and there are today living In
El Paso hundreds of people, in good
health, engaged In business and en-
; oylng life, who declare that had
they not come to this genial clime
they would either have died long ago
or continued to drag out a miserable
existence. There Is not a winter but
aumerous invalids who have sought
other health resorts come on to El
Paso by advice of the physicians at
those resorts. They come from Col-
orado and Northern New Mexico be-
cause It is too cool there and they
come from Southern California be-
cause It Is too damp there. Here they
find a dry, warm, sunny climate, with
almost every condition required to^ln-
Some years ago Dr. Alfred S.
Houghton of Chicago wrote that after
a thorough examination and careful
study of the subject, he found El
Paso and San Diego, Cal., the two
places most favorable to all persons
afflicted with pulmonary diseases.
Following Is a portion of a table of
statistics of “annual climatic changes’’
which Dr.. Houghton prepared, and
upon which he based his conclusions:
its latitude 42 degrees north, the lon-
gitude being the same as that of Santa
Fe, N. M., and the latitude the same
as that of Savannah, Ga., and San
Diego, CaL It is 340 miles south of
Santa Fe, constituting the souihui
terminus of the Atchison, it.j.

The mountain ranges of New Mexico
and old Mexico abutting on the river at
this point give variety and beauty to
the landscape and contribute that ex-
hlleratlng quality of “mountain air”
which, combined with the mild tem-
perature of the winter season, consti-
tutes the charm of the El Paso climate.
The altitude Is 3760 feet above the
sea level—high enough to be pure aftfl
bracing, and yet not high enough to
embarrass the heart’s action and In-
crease the dyspnoea of those affected
with pulmonary complaints. I found
it true with regard to myself while
suffering from a severe attack of bron-
chitis. and also with regard to others
w hom I met that whereas at Las Vegas
and Santa Fe (at an altitude respec-
tively of 6700 and 7100 feet) we suf-
fered from dyspnoea and had to walk
slowly, like confirmed Invalids, the de-
scent to El Paso enabled us to walk
briskly and soon made us feel equal
to running a foot race.
The soil is sandy and very porous.
The temperature is hot In summer
and mild in winter. For those who
have the means of traveling It would
be folly to summer In El Paso, and yet
the dryness of the atmosphere Is such
that a temperature of 100 to 105 de-
grees In the shade is more endurable
than that of 70 and 85 degrees in Phil-
adelphia. Sunstroke Is unknown, in
spite of a maximum temperature of
110 degrees In summer, and those
who are compelled to remain there do
not perish with the heat, nor suffer
much, if any, more than the Inhabl-

EL PASO’S PURE AIR.
To the American Climatological asso-
ciation Dr. E. W. Schauffler, of Kansas
City, made the following report:
El Paso tSk situated at the extreme
western boundary of Texas, In that
tongue of land which Is bounded on
the north and west by New Mexico
and on the south by tbe Rto Grande.
Its longitude Is 106 degrees west, and
tants of Eastern cities.
But It Is tbe winter temperature to
which I wish to call attention, as well
as the small amount of rainfall and
the small number of cloudy days, these
conditions combining to constitute the
charm of the winter, during which
season the invalid can walk, or even
sit out of doors, almost every day.
Combined with the mild temperature
there Is, as I have before remarked,
a bracing tonic quality to tbe air, due,
perhaps, in part, to Its rarity and dry-
ness, which I have failed to find In
the air of Florida, of the Gulf, or even
of San Antonio, Texas.
In view of Its mild winter climate.
Its altitude, the great dryness of the
atmosphere and soil, and the remark-
able preponderance of clear and fair
days, especially during the winter and
spring months, I think it must be con-
ceded that El Paso presents many of
the requisites of a winter resort for
persons suffering from pulmonary
complaints. Nor Is this merely a theo-
retical conclusion. It Is confirmed by
the experience of a considerable num-
ber of asthmatic, bronchitic, and phth-
isical patients who have already tested
the virtues of this climate. Some of
these 1 met myself during a stay
some weeks last February and March,
and with regard to others I was In-
formed by the physicians of that place
and the army officers of Fort Bliss.
This testimony was the same that Is
usually obtained at such places—viz:
that the patient soon begins to loose
his cough, to Improve In appetite, and
to gain in weight and strength.
Notwithstanding the newness of the
place, the accommodations of El Paso
are very fair. There are several quite
large and respectable hotels, there Is a
good market, and the price of living Is
not high. Although in Texas, It Is a’
very wide awake Yankee town, with
an elegant court house, public school
buildlug, numerous churches, etc. One
great charm to the visitor or sojourner
Is the proximity of Old Mexico, just
across the Rio Grande, where within
an easy walk or drive, he finds the
city of Paso del Norte, surrounded by
a well Irrigated and cultivated coun-
try, teeming with a kindly and Indus-
trious population. For myself, 1
never wearied of watching their
strange seventeenth century methods
of living and working.
