The va- cancy on the Supreme Bench occasioned by the election of Judge Davis to the Senate, is attracting much attention, and the friends of the aspirants are not idle.

Sherman's Successor, WASHINGTON, March confirma- tion of Senator Sherman as Secretary of the Treasury hag set in motion the contest for the succession to him in the Senate. The ability and services, of .the Hon. Stanley Matthews before the Electoral Commission will give him Executive countenance, and doubtless support. Attorney General Taft will leave at once for Columbus to look after his chances. General Garfield will also be a competitor in view of the fact that the administration will need a representa- tive in the Senate holding close relations with the President, and will command abil- ity and experience. Judge Matthews will in all probability be the choice of the Leg- islature. The Senate Committees. WASHINGTON, March Republi- can Senators held a caucus yesterday morning, at which the report of the com- mittee appointed to revise the standing committees was submitted and adopted. The minority gets increased representation, so that instead of three the will have four places out of nine on each con- political committee, with perhaps the ex- ception of one or two committees which are of a quasi-political character. The Repub- licans have provided for Senator Davis, of Illinois, by assigning him to the Judiciary Committee and Committee on Revision of Laws. The Democratic lines are not yet completed, and therefore no election of committees will be possible before to- day.

That New York Fire. ;NEW.

WASHINGTON, March Senate re- sumed consideration of the unfinished busi- ness, being the resolution of Mr. Bayard, of Delaware, "that the credentials of John T. Morgan, Senator-elect from the State of Alabama, he taken from the table, and that he be sworn." Mr. Spencer, of Alabama, moved to amend the resolution 80 as to refer the cre- dent! Ala of JMr. Morgan to the Committee on Privileges and Elections. After some debate the resolution that Mr. Morgan, of .Alabama, be sworn in as a Sen- ator was agreed to without division. Mr. Wallace then offered a resolution that Mr. Grower, of Oregon, be sworn in. Mr. Conkling then addressed the Senate making the point that there was no simili- tude between the Oregon and Louisiana cases. In the one he said.a legally recog- nized and onstitutional legislature existed, in the other there were two claimants for the governorship and two distinct bodies each pretending to be the true legislature of the State. The general government so far had been unable to decide upon the merits of either and so he considered the reference of Kellogg's case to the committee an eminently proper course, bat Mr. Grover should be sworn in at once and any charges now made against him might be investi- gated hereafter. During his remarks Mr. Conkling defended the policy of the new administration as foreshadowed in the in- augural address. Mr. Thurman stated that he had been authorized by. ME. Grover to state that he (Grover) courted the.fullest investigation that when he was Admitted he would offer a resolution for the appointment of committee for that purpose. Mr. Grover was sworn in. The Senate then went into executive ses- sion, and when the doors were reopened ad- journed.

Objections being in- troduced on the ground that the nomina- tttm been ordered to referred to Finance Committee when appointed, and that it could not now be acted tipon with- out unanimous consent, Mr. Wheeler de- cided that the rules applicable to reference to committees, etc., were not in force, aa no committees were in existence. After considerable discussion concerning the point of order the decision was sustained without a division. The question was then taken on the confirmation of Mr. Sherman's nomination. It was confirmed by the vote of the Republican Senators against 26 votes in the negative cast by Democratic members of the body. Several of the Detr ocratic Senators.refrained from voting. No attempts were made to confirm any of the other Cabinet nominees. Legislative. March tbe Senate the following bills passed finally To per- mit fishing with nets in the waters of the Commonwealth.

Dyspepsia. Dyspepsia. Dyspepsia is most perplexing of all human ailments. Its symptoms are almost infinite in their variety, and the forlorn and despondent victims of the disease often fancy themselves the prey, in turn of every known malady. This ix due, in. part, to the close sympathy which exists between the atom- ach and the brim, and in part also to the fact that any disturbance of the digestive function necessa- rily disorders the liver, the bowels and the nervous system, and effects, to some extent, the quality of the blood.

This is aot a new preparation, to be tried wanting; it has been prescribed daily for many years in the practice of eminent physicians with unparalleled success it is not expected or intended to cure all the diseases to which the human family is subject, bat is warranted to cure Dyspepsia in Us most obstinate form.
