Rmithmeyer, architect of the new Congressional Library of Wash- ington, D. C, ranks first in his profes- sion in this country. Thia library is considered the finest building in the United States. Mr. Smithmeyer spent sixteen years traveling in Europe work- ing on the plans, and Congress appro- priated six million dollars for this building. In a letter written from Washington and dated July 4th, 1899, to The Pertma Medicine Co., Columbus, O., Mr. Smith- meyer saya the following in regard to Peruna, the world-renowned catarrh cure: WASHINGTON, D.

Scott said this morning: \I wish you would make it plain to the people that tfie President is more .troubled than anybody aibout the necessity of abandoning his program. He is more eager to carry it out than any person can be to have trim do so. Everybody will understand why he cannot leave his wife at this time; but we all hope for the best.\ In an authorized Statement by. Irv- ing M. Scott, the future movements of the President, so far as decided upon, are announced as follows: For today the trip up Mount Tamal- pa is and all other events arranged have been abandoned. Friday the President will only re- ceive the school children in Golden Gate Park, devoting as much of his time to this as possible. On Saturday the President hopes to be present at the launching of tine Ohio. In (the event of his being able to do so a special wire from the Scott home to the scene of the launching will be arranged so that communica- tion from Mrs. McKinley may be re- ceived by him. Miss Barber, niece of Mrs. McKin- ley, has been selected to launch the battleship in place of her aunt. It was understood when the trip was projected that Mrs. McKinley should attend no formal banquets, but at Memphis it was found 'that an am- bitious society leader had planned a dinner in her honor. Secretary Cor- telyou promptly said that Mrs, Mc- Kinley would not attend. The woman pleaded and entreated, but Mr. Cortel- you remained firm. Then the woman told of the preparations she had made, and of people she had invited, and represented that if Mrs. McKinley. did not come to her house she would be forever disgraced in 1 the eyes of Memphis society. So, aut of pure good nature, the President and Mrs. McKinley yielded, and she went to the dinner, where she sat for two Hours, and was- very much -wearied. Then, on top of that, a bone felon develop- !d. and for four days she had little ileep.

Of the injured, one man, William Walsh, is believed to have received a fatal wound, the bullet striking him in the head. He is the son of former County Treasurer Walsh.

Among those having ex- periences with him is W. D. O'Brien, brother of Hon. John F. O'Brien. The Troy Times says: \Monday April J a well dressed young man, about five feet eleven inches in height and of dark complexion, applied to W. D. O'Brien, Grand Knight of Troy Coun- cil, Knights of Columbus. He ex- plained that he was a theatrical man, and his general appearance bore out the statement, and the company with which be was traveling recently fail- ed \on the road.\ He said he was John W. Duffy, of 800 Broad street, Newark, N. J.. and that his brother was a Grand Knight of the Knights of Columbus. He spoke familiarly of several promineint Knights known to Mr- O'Brien, and on the strength of these statements Mir. O'Brien advanc- ed him $2 for car fare to Newburg-on- the-'Hudson, where he explained t\ ' e had relatives. \Mr. O'Brien heard nothing of the stranger until a day or two ago, when (he received a letter from John E.

Mr. MaDonough stated that a young man of similar description to the one who visited this city presented himself to Mr. MoDonough as Frank W. O'iBrien, son of W. D. O'Brien of 377 River street, Troy.

These two, it is said will recover. Albany, May 16—A few cars were moved on the tracks of the United Traction Company today, each being under a strong military escort. Crowds throng the streets and watch the cars as they pass. The strikers them- selves are behaving splendidly and are everywhere urging peace and a strict observance of the law. They have already succeeded in'getting a nufmber of the non-union men, who came here yesterday afternoon. General Hoffman left the Capitol at 1 o'clock, where he had been busy in (his office dining the morning. He walked down to the hotel; and on en- tering accosted Major-General Charles F. Roe, who sat in the lobby reading, General Hoffman said he thought he would go up into his room and take a nap, adding ithat he did not think he cared for any lundh. G©n. Hoffman then left General Roe to go up stairs, last night, to join their ranks. Sol- and m ab »ut 10 minutes he called up diers are stretched all along the line i P\ e \ otel oSio& ^^ »*ed them to of the railway, and the streets look telephone for a doctor. It being thi as if they were lined in parade with scattered soldiers. The onlookers are giving the soldiers no trouble. Now and then a shout of derision greets a car, but nothing harder than words are thrown at it. The incident of the last twenty-four hours was the wild, furious ride of the non-union men on trucks up State street last night. No sooner had the non-union men reach- ed tbe. depot than the news spread like wildfire. As if by magic hundreds of people flocked along Broadway and State street. It was just about six o'clock, and the streets soon became crowded with men, women and boys through with their day's work. 'As the trucks rolled along Broad- way tine crowds grew by the second. As they wheeled into State street the trouble began. Bricks, stones and bottles seem to come toward the men on the trucks from all directions. Some of them must have been badly hurt. In the immense crowd it was impossible to tell Who threw the missies, though young boys seem to be the most active in the work. The shouting came from the men, though the women done their share of it. As ithe stones and bricks commenced to come thicker the men on the trucks struggled among themselves for posi- tions of vantage and this struggle linked with tlhe bombardment either caused or compelled many of v the out- siders to jump off the trucks between Broadway and Eagle street. Most of these were immediately corralled by the strikers and taken to their head- quarters. Opposite the Albany City Bank one of the \outsiders\ on a ftruck who was struck in the head with a brick is said to have drawn a re- volver, but it was not loaded, or else he did not attempt to fire it. When the soldiers swung out of Chapel street and tried to stem the rushing crowd, here were doings for a while. Some of the men were knocked sprawling and a few were badly out. The soldiers stayed the crowd for a while, but the crowd was too many for them and partially broke througlh the soldier line cast across State street. Some of the crowd punched the soldiers and were as promptly knocked down by rifles in was near Dove the soldiers' hands. As the cavalcade street on Washington avenue, a re- volver in the crowd belched forth its yell of destruction and one of the men L the trucks was shot in the arm. The man who fired the shot was not caught, as the crowd immediately \ sed up ajid he was lost. The man on the truck who was shot was Gil- bert Hall, of Brooklyn. When the cavalcade reached Quail street it looked for a moment as if there would be serious trouble, but the soldiers finally succeeded in get- ting the men in the cage, though bat- tered and 'bleeding. The crowds on all the streets in the viciniity of the barns on Quail street were immense- It is estimated that 3000 people were congregated at one time, gazing at the pickets. Now and then an excited individual would try to get HJhroueh the lines, but was promptly halted, and unless he show- ed credentials, was ordered back. Late in the afternoon the crowds on Quail street north of Central avenue, lrgod forward several times. Time and again pickets made vain attempts to force back the people. But they •e powerless. Major Case then as- sembled a few platoons. The order was given to \fix bayonets.\ Then in \double time\ tihey charged upon the crowd. Back they weait pelhnell to Sherman sltreet. Later the same tactics were employed on Central avenue, west of Quail street, and then on Central avenue below Quail street. In the last charge Major Case used his sabre on two men. who were fellml. omen fainted. It&ken to the hospital in lance, another in One was the ambu- Oharlei G-unn's coaches. A boy who said he lived at 24 Dove street was knocked over and injured about the head. He p a doctor. It being thus learned that rthe general was ill, every assistance was given him until the doctors arrived, just too late. Death was caused by heart failure, and everything was over in 10 minutes. Gen. Hoffman was born In Elmira about 45 years ago. ©y occupation toe was a horticulturist and nurseryman. He was married about 15 years ago, and is survived by a widow and one son. No man in the guard was more beloved than the general. He was one of the ablest tacticians who ever held a position at ithe head of the guard, and his appointment by Gov. Roosevelt, as successor to Adjutant- General Avery D. Andrews, on Dec. 27, 1599, evoked general commendation. He iwas reappointed on January 1 last by Gov. Odell. During the Spanish war, Gen. Hoffman served from April 29 to December 10, 1898, as colonel of the Third Regiment, New York Volun- iteers. His further military record is as follows: He enlisted in the One Hundred and Tenth Battalion as a private October 10, 1874; was commissioned second lieutenant April 7. 1877; first lieuten- ant Thirtieth Separate Company, No- vember 29, 1881; lieutenant ^colonel and assistant adjutant-general, Sev- enth Brigade, December 6, 1884; supernumerary August 5, 1886; first lieutenant, Thirtieth Separate Com- pany, May 11, 1887; captain, Septem- ber 4, 1890; inspector-general, Decem- ber 31, 1&96; re-appointed JanuaTy 1, 1S97, with original rank. OLtDQUOiR TAX LAW. Decision Rendered in Regard to Re- gistry Provision. Albany, N. Y., May 14—Deputy 1 Acting State Commissioner of Exxsise Clement 'today made the fallowing statement, in view of the attempt which lhais been made dn some quarters to render one of the recent amend- ments to the Liquor Tax Law ridicu- lously oppressive to persons traffick- ing in liquor by construing the same (to require the registry of every per- son who should resort (to a place where 'liquor lie sold for the~ purpose of ob- taining liquors. A careful reading of the act clearly discloses that the amendment has no such purpose. The new law requires the holder of a li- quor tax certificate, which authorizes sales of Mquor to be drunk upon the prtimiises, and who shall be the keeper of a hotel, lodging or 'boarding (house, to furnish, whenever required, to the State Commissioner of Excise a report of the names of al'l persons entertain- ed by him as guests, lodgers or board- ers, stating the date since when such sts, lodgers or boarders have been peran/anently and continuously tinmates of said hotel lodging or boarding (house. It also requires the keeping of a da'ily record of all persons enter- tidd th htl li An Honorable Record. George Towne, late first sergeant cf Company E, 15th Infantry, who was placed on the retired list on March 22, has a military record of which he can justly \feel proud. Mr. Towne was born in Boston, August 7, 1844, and October 29* 1862, when but 18 years of age, he enlisted ID Company H, 2d Massachusetts Heavy Artillery, serv- ing with the regiment until Alpril 20, 1864, when he was taken prisoner and was confined for nine monibhs in t h prisons at AndersohvLlle, Ga, and Florence, S. C. He <was. discharged from the volunteer service on June 25, 1865. On September 1, 1869, he enlisted in Company K, 13th Infantry. He serv- ed with Col. Baker in the Paigan In- ddan campaign in January, 1870, and witJh Gen. Smith in the Sioux cam- piaign in June, 1873. He was honor- ably discharged from the service on August 31, 1874. He re-enlisted in the same company on February 14, 1880, and was discharged on February 13, 1885. On the following day i e again re-enlisted in the same company, and served with Col. tBiddle in the Ap&chf campaign from September, 1885, until September, 1886. He received his dis- charge on February 13, 1890, and eight days later enlisted in Company 13, 15th Infantry, in which company he served eleven years and one month, ten anontJha of which he was in Cuba, during the Spanish-iAmerdcan <i During all his long term of service, Mr. Towne was never plaeed under ar- rest or tried by a military court, and all his discharges gave him an ex- cellent character* RECEIVED THEIR UORAS. wenty-seven Xew Members Initia- ted into the Elks.

S Bent- At the close of the initiatory cere- monies the newly-made Elks were es- corted to the banquet room by their older brethren, where a sumptuous re- past had been prepared under the dl- eteKon of John B. Hagerty. The spread was a credit to Mr. Hagerty and to tfhose associated with him in its pre- paration, and was thoroughly enjoyed by all present. As the hour of eleven o'clock struck, as if by common ac- cord, every person in the room arose and while standing, dirank tlhe toast, \Absent Brothers.\ When the inner man had been satisfied, the dhairanan of tfhe social committee, C. E. Martin called upon Exalted Ruler Julhie Men- delsohn, for a speech. Mr. Mendel- sohn made a few (remarks, calling up- on the members of the lodge to stand together and be true to their ofoMga- tion, predicting a rapid and healthy erowith of the organization, if its prtn- •ciplea and duties are tarried out by those who are now members. Mr. Mendelsohn was followed by J B Hagerty, C. J. Vert and others, and for over two hours eloquence, wit and humor, varied by songs—both coroilc and sentimental—-were in order. The Elks, at the time of their installation in Plattsburgh, last October, proved themselves iroyal entertainers, 'and last Friday's social session added greatly to that reputation. AT PLATTSBlheH BABKACKS. Another Company of th<-;*7th Infan- try Organized. There are now nearly 150 of the 27th Infantry at Fflattsbutti Barracks, and the number is-bein* added to daily by the arrival of from five to ten recruits, many of them \ old solldiers, who have done honorable service for their country on the flelft ~*. battle. - Companies E and F each contain over fifty men, and G. Company has now been formed and is located in tb« quarters formerly occupied toy Com- pany F of the 21st. The new com- pany now has sixteen members, with Arthur R. Alexander as first sergeant. Mr. Alexander was formerly first ser- geant in the lath Infantry, ana also a member of .the 71st N. Y. Vols Ho 'hias an honorable uriiMtary career, and will undoubtedly prove a valuable «^» quisition to the new regiment. Bff- ward H. Keeler, first duty sergeant, formerly a member of the 7th N\. T . Vols., is another member of the cone* pany, who has apparently all tlar qualifications which go to make up* a good soldier. Loyde S.

A large audience attended the con- cert of the City Band at the Platts- botrgh Theatre Tuesday night under the direction of the P. H. S. base ball club, and all present were well pleased with the entertainment. The band repeated their successes at former concerts, and even improved their reputation Tues- day evening. That the program was well selected, goes without saying, and the rendering of the selections by the musicians was superb. Under the direction of Mr. E. Q. Clarke, the fefficdent bandmaster, the organization has certainly reached a point where it is a credit to the vil- lage which it represents. All of thfe numbers were good, but in particular, may be mentioned the pleasing trom- bone solo by Mr. E. S. Payne, the ex- cellent violin solo by Mr. Clarke, the \Light Cavalry\ overture, and tlhe se- lections from \San Toy,\ as well as the several marches which were rendered with much spirit and expression. The concert was all that could be •desired and argues well for the open air concerts that it is hoped will be Riven during the sumimer in Custom House Park. WOODMEN OF AMERICA. Plattsltnrgh €amp.
