Gents: — ’ Tis with pleas ­ ure I write to let you know what Eureka has done for me, and I deem it my duty to your medicine and the public. I have suffered for over 20 years with kidney difficulty I suffered severe pain in my back and could not lay on mv right side in bed, my right limb pained me a great deal and the joints were badly swollen; had to get up several times during every night to urinate which had a deep sediment to it of brick color tinge. A friend persuaded me to Eureka, which I did with the following success. Before I bad taken all the first bottle the pain had all left my back and the swelling had all disapoeared from my:limb,and I could go to try bed and sleep all night without having to get up, and before I had taken but very little of ihe second bottle I could lay on either side in bed; was entirely free from pain and to-day am very haopv to s ty I consider myself cured of the trouble I hare so long suffered. I recom ­ mend it to all ladies suffering with like com- plaint,as physicians with which I have doctored told me my case had become chronic and in ­ curable. Respectfully. M rs . J ohn I. C lapper .

Senator Fassett gave certain Democratic senators a scoring during Thursday ’ s ses­ sion, in one of the most effective and brill ­ iant speeches that have been delivered in the legislature this -winter. The Republi ­ can majority were assailed during the session by certain Democratic senators who charged that the Trust investigation was being delayed and dishonestly con ­ ducted. Senator Fassett is not the man to sit silent when his political opponents make false charges or indulge in clap-trap buncombe. At the first opportunity, he took the floor and in an address that fairly bristled with merciless satire and witty thrusts at his Democratic opponents he presented a scorching arraignment of their hypocrisy and misrepresentation, while stating the Republican position. During his remarks, Senator Fassett asked : “ Now, what is the history of this from the start? “ It was whirled into the senate here by a new convert for reform. If there is any ­ thing that is established in this world, it is the well known zeal of the newly converted ; and we have had a beautiful illustration m the person of the senators from the Eleventh (Ives), and from the Tenth (Cantor). We old veterans in the Republican ranks in the cause of reform, welcome them with glee; and after their enthusiasm has abated, after the fever in their blood has subsided, then w T e may expect them to go at reform in a business like way with cold blood and clear intellects, unprejudiced by passion or hot ambition; and they may learn something of the truth of the statement that “ they also serve who only stand and wait. ” Their posing as reformers is indeed grotesque; doubtless God could have created a more ridiculous object than a Democratic senator claiming credit for his party in the line of reform,\but doubtless God never did and I doubt if he ever will. ” Senator Fassett went on to say: “ The senator from the eleventh introduced a res ­ olution here some days ago which, in effect, was to hunt ducks with a brass band. He wanted seven lawyers, and ’ every one of them a good lawyer, able to investigate, good book-keepers, who could look through the books of the Standard Oil company ; and he wanted them armed and equipped with two generals — beg your pardon, one general and one colonel —to see that they came through the contest with the trusts in good shape. He wanted to reform, but, he wanted it in his own way; any other wny was a wrong way. and he would not listen to the advice of older, better and more sagacious men in anything that con ­ travened his preconceived notions or those of Tammany hall: and any one who offered such advice or suggested any other method was at once to be met with^tbe accusation of corruption, fraud, treachery, and oppo ­ sition to the will of the people. At once, the Democratic press proceeded to stigma ­ tize some of the most honorable men of the state of Hew York as recreant to their duty, to their conscience, to the people, and to the great trusts impqsed upon them as public officers. Every step has shown the wisdom of this very advice to act with deliberation In the cause of reform. But we have not done with the ecstacy, with this delirium of reform. An unprecedented thing happened on Monday night.; a mem ­ ber of that committee after going into a caucus, or an executive session of the com ­ mittee, and taking a part in the vote, and being defeated, and in honor bound by the rule of all caucuses to abide by the issue of the caucus, what did he do? The action of this senator has not been charac ­ terized with one half the force it deserves. The senator could not wait for the action of his collegues, he could not wait for the report which was to be made to the senate to-day ; but with his grip sack in hand, he rushes for the first train and unjustly, un ­ generously and unmanfully comes to this senate with the only, sole, and avowed purpose of placing his collegues in a false position before this body and before the people of the state of Hew York. It was rank treason, it was ungenerous treatment of his collegues. There was nothing to be gained in it for reform or for the purposes of this investigation. We urged them that he wait until we heard from the committee, and then we could take up this matter; and if Mr. Parsons is in contempt and de ­ serves punishment, and this investigation is to be benefited by punishing him, we would punish Mm. The issue has shown again the wisdom of the suggestion of the senator from the twenty-first. Mr. Parsons has given essentially all of that sealed paper to the committee, and they have it in their possession. ‘ There is a deliberate and a premeditated purpose to misrepresent the attitude of the majority before the people. But the min ­ ority have got to have an issue — they are like the boy digging for the woodchuck, he must have it, the parson is coming and they have got to have some meat; the Democracy have got to have an issue; they have got to put themselves on the right side of something, and if they do not suc ­ ceed in taking to themselves the credit for all this reform, the minister will go hungry — the question is whether this minister is to be Cleveland or Hill. “ I do not know of any permanent good or reform that has ever been accomplished by clap-trap. When Tilden was nominated in 1876 he was nominated upon a platform bristling with reform, and it has been the hoodoo word — the incantation word — of the Democracy ever since ; they are wed ­ ded to it and could not live without it. They adore the.word ; they abominate and shun the thing itself. “ The senator from the tenth emphasizes with his usual Jesuistic skill the word ‘ unit. ’ He defies and challenges all history to show some reform by the Republican party as a I don ’ t know what he means by. that, unless he has in mind, or was the author of, a campaign document I got last fall on which was given a state ­ ment of the Democratic reforms for 1883- 4 5-6 and 1887. 1883 was. all well enough, the Democrats had a majority in both houses, and a Democratic governor; butin 1884 the Republicans had a majority in both houses; and yet every good billon that list, or at least nine-tenths of them, were introduced and put through by Re ­ publicans — stjll they were claimed as Dem ­ ocratic reforms: perhaps the Democrats helped a little, one or two decent fellows In 1885 eleven-twelfths of the so-calM Democratic reforms were introduced and put through by Republicans. One of those measures passed in / i884 — I want to tell the senate about it — I introduced it; I drew it Up, it was passed by a Republican senate and by a Republican assembly; and Gov ­ ernor Cleveland signed it. The next fall when he was running for president he had his picture printed on a card which was circulated as a campaign document, and on the back of that card he had my bill — a Democratic reform measure. The next fall when Governor Hill was running for governor he also had his picture printed on a card; on the hack of that circular he had a list of the Democratic reform measures, and the first one was my hill. What did Hill have to do with that? He sat in the seat occupied by. the lieutenant governor and presided over the senate that passed the bill — more Democratic reform. . “ That is about the way that the Demo ­ crats steal our thunder. They have less modesty than we have ; but they can take on reform like a magnet rolling through iron particles — so they roll through the legislative record and pick up the good Re ­ publican measures and spread them before the world as Democratic reform. There is not a measure of reform in reducing taxa ­ tion or in easing the burdens upon real property or promoting personal security that has passed the legislature during the last four years that has not been put through by substantial Republican unani ­ mity. “ We are old bands at this question of trusts. One of the committee ’ s council can testify that the Republican party had a great hand in squelching the slave trust and we expect to squelch these trusts in due time. Our Democratic friends want to get all the credit cut of these things be ­ fore they go too far; they have not trodden on anybody ’ s corns thus far so as to hurt them ; and they can yet make their peace with the moneyed corporations that they have been frightening — even with the sugar company if they so desire; but we Republicans propose that this thing, now that the iron is started, must go through. But it must be done in due form and dig ­ nity and with propriety and with as good common sense as we can muster. ” Rensselaer County. NASSAU. Our new bakery will start about April first.

While returning home the sleigh upset with its load. Mrs. Wm. Pitts, after a long period of unspeakable suffering, died on Friday Feb. 24, and was buried Monday Feb. 27. Dur ­ ing all her sickness never a word of com ­ plaint escaped her lips. She was much loved by all who knew her. Two Irishmen were talking on the street the other day. Jimmy says to Mike: — “ Say, Mike, dd you think the prohibitions will ever get in power? ” Mike replied: “ Ocht and be jabbers, Jamie, and faith and I don ’ t know; hut be gorray I hope I ’ ll live to see ’ em get in power. ” Here Jimmy broke in with the query : “ And why do you? ” Mike continued, “ For surely if I do, Methuselah would be an infant by the side of me. ” The patients who are on the sick list are , all improving.

Knickerbocker took the patient in charge. A young man in getting over a rail fence; last week got caught by a steel trap by the seat of his pants. He says he never knew there was so much attraction in a steel trap before and the elevating feeling he wifi never forget. The citizen who bought the goat “ old Skin-trees ” at the auction last week for 75 cents did not call for him, so he has been sold to an war veteran at a discount. The new purchaser keeps an eye on him, so he- will not be surprised from the rear. He is the only Billy who has head enough to b& respected in these parts. The Democratic electors of our school district held a caucus at the school house last Friday evening to elect three delegates . to the town convention. There were two factions and quite a spirited contest took place, but the north was victorious on ac ­ count of numbers. We hope to see the time when the Republicans can dispose of them so there will be no contention among them. pm CASTLETON. J. W. Yan Hoesen is suffering from an attack of rheumatism.
