Notaries' Terms Expiring. Iowa's notaries are being- notified that on, Inly 4 the triennial term for which they were appointed will expire, and u they wish a rcappointment they must apply before that time. There are now «,T4« notaries in the (state, and it is estimated that this number will be increased about 100 by that tilne. It was stated that according- to past experiences over half of these officials would apply and be commissioned, while the. remainder would run alonrj- doyig- business unconscious of the fact that they were not qualified. A !);;ti'>lo Tr.igr<!clj-. A family row occurred at Le Claire which would result fatally lor one of the victims, if not both. Newton Nesbit and wife were eating breakfast, when the husband made a reflecting remark. Mrs. Nesbit drew a revolver and sent a ball into the back part of his head, which would prove fatal. She then shot herself twice, the first ball taking effect in the neck, and the second making- a scalp wound. Nesbit was a steamboat fireman and lived unhappily with his family. Scalpers Get 11 Black Kye. At the Union stock yards in Sioux Uty about twenty scalpers were thrown out of business by the operation of the new rule allowing shippers to that market to reship to other markets but requiring the identity of the stock to be preserved. Previously the railroads allowed such shipments without requiring- identity of the stock. The scalpers thus made a nice profit by sorting, canning and stock cattle and shipping- to Chicago on through bill. Honored hi Death. The funeral of the late Col. P. G. Balling-all was attended at Ottumwa by fully 5,000 people.. Rev. I. P. Teeter, of Oskaloosa, delivered the funeral sermon and Senator Dodge, a colleague of Col.

ROMK, April 34.— The powder magazine at the fort at Pozzo Pantaleo exploded at 7 o'clock a. ,n., Ihursday completely demolishing the fort, killing seven peasants who wore in the vicinity and sm- ously injuring hundreds of othoivi! ine fort was four kilometers from Home, but, the explosion shook this city to its center. Houses rocked and trcmibl, ; <1 as though smitten with an ajfuis, W hu 0 tho gtas9 from t i, ollBnnrls at broken windows-was hurled through the air and Cell in dangerous showiTrs to the fitrc«1.8. The great cupola surmounting the parliament buiMW was mashed to pieces and the surroun<r- ing streets strewn with its debris. The doors of offices and private residences were burst open by the'terriflc concussion and heavy articles of furniture were overturned. Many of the people whom the early hour found still asleep were thrown from their beds and clashed violently upon the floors of their apartmenta. Panic-stricken, the be- wiJdered people in thousands poured out upon the streets, fearing and fully expecting to find the city in the P 7 S - ° f a f ' rrc{lt earthquake. Confusion and terror was everywhere. Men looked in each other's faces only to find reflected there the. fear W hich possessed themselves. V>omen praying 1 aloiid, others hurrying with their children to find refuge from an unknown danger, and still others weeping hysterically and aimlessly wringing their hands were met at every corner. When the city had quieted clown and an investigation had been had it was found that enormous damage had been done to the fort, which was filled with soldiers a few moments before the explosion occurred. 1'ortunately the commandant heard the warning rumble and at once ordered the men to vacate the building This was promptly done and a terrible disaster was thus averted. King Humbert, accompanied by Premier Rudini and every member of the cabinet, has gone to the scene of the disaster. A military corflon has been established at POMO Pantaleo and the people are forbidden to approach the vicinity of the wrecked fort. Forty small houses in the nei°-hbor- hood of the exploded magazine are entirely ruined and many more are seriously damaged. The appearance of the king in the streets on his way to Pozzo Pantaleo excited the utmost enthusiasm among the people who still thronged the thoroughfares, and exerted a decided influence in reassurinp- the timid. When King Humbert was seen returning from the wreck conveying some of the wounded to the hospital m his own carriage he was given an ovation all along tfi e line of his progress. * & Two officers dangerously wounded and 130 civilians have thus far been taken to the hospitals. Every house within a radius of a kilometer from the point of the explosion is mqi-e O r less domaged. It has been ascertained that 250 tons of powder was stored tho exploded magazine. The Vatican was not spared. The edifice was shaken and several of the historical stained glass windows of the old building were shattered. The windows in the ancient Raphael chambers and the stained glass in the royal staircase, presented to Pope Pius IX. by the king of Bavaria, were seriouslv injured. J THROWN Ocn. Butler Incnrs a Rhode Inland ,,„,.„„ IMsplcaanrc and Is Removed by Force. BOSTON, April 22.—The case of Mrs. Johnson, convicted of perjury in a pension application, came up in the United States district court Tuesday morning before Judge Carpenter, of Rhode Island, the question beintf on the arrest of judgment. When the oase was last before the court (Jen. 15. F. Butler, counsel for Mrs. Johnson, incurred the displeasure of Judjrc Carpenter, whom the general later characterized as "an inferior judge of an inferior court of an inferior state," and was forbidden by him to again appear before that court. Gen. Butler thereupon carried his right of appearance to the United .States supreme court, As a result Mrs. Johnson Tuesday morning appeared without counsel. The judge asked her who was her counsel? "Gen. I Hitler," was the answer. "Well," said the judge, "he cannot appear before, this court." Gen. Butler was sent for by his client, and appeared in the courtroom about I o'clock. District Attorney Allen, when ho entered, moved for sentence, when Gen. Butler arose to address the court. Judge Carpenter, saying that the gentleman was disorderly, ordered Marshal Dougherty to remove him from the courtroom. The marshal and an assistant advanced to Gen. Butler's side and took him by the arms. Butler again endeavored to address the court, when his honor called out 1 "Mr Marshall" Marshal Dougherty said to Butler: "You hear the order of the -judge, tren- eral?" Butler said: "I am ready to—" "Remove him, Mr. Marshal," broke in tho judge. "I can't allow him to create any further disturbance." Butler again began to speak, but before he could finish the sentence he was taken hold of by the marshal and his assistants and escorted from the room. He was much affected, and his eyes were full of tears as he exclaimed: "I yield to force." When the marshal released him in the corridor Butler immediately returned to the courtroom. The judge had just left the bench, however, and the general, having looked around and seeing the bench vacant, exclaimed: "Well, the room . smells a little better now than it did a few minutes ago!" lie then left the court.

WORCESTER, Mass., April 24.—Philip L. Moen, president of the Washburn & Moen Manufacturing Company, died at his home in this city late Thursday afternoon. He suffered a stroke of apoplexy several days ago and never rallied. He was born in Wilna, N Y November 13, 1834, and had been connected with the wire works in this city forty-six years. He leaves a widow and three children. Mr. Moon's life had been marked by one singular episode and that was his connection with the notorious "Doc" Levi Wilson. Wilson was a coachman —a low, vulgar fellow—and yet, without any apparent reason as far as is known, Mr. Moen in the course of seven years paid him between $300,000 and $400,000. He beo-an to make these payments to Wilson fn 1875 In 1882 Mr. Moen announced to Wilson that he should pay him no more money giving him then $30,000. Wilson in 1885 brought suit against Moeii for #110,000 claiming that the Worcester rnan- ufacturer had agreed to pay all his (Wilson's) breach of promise cases and they aggregated that flo- urc The jury disagreed. Since Wilson has been wandering about, being now nominally a commercial traveler in the west Mr. Moen never mentioned the affair to even his intimate friends. He insisted that it was a case of blackmail, pure and simple, but declined to make any explanation further than to say his good name was not involved in Wilson's secret. Wilson as long as he received money from Moen refused any explanation, but after his supplies were cut off he declared he was Mr. Moen's illegitimate child. This, too, the latter denied and he died with the mystery as deep as ever. It Wants to Come in Through the Kocl- proclty Door-Arrival of a Special Commissioner from the West Indian Republic at tho Capital with Authoiity to Arrange a Treaty Similar to the Itrazllian and Spanish Ones. WASHINGTON, Ap il 23.— Mr. Galvan, the special commiss\ mer to the United States from San \3oiningo, arrived Tuesday night. His purpose is to negotiate a reciprocity arrangement similar to the Brazilian and Spanish ones, and it is not improbable that he will remain as minister. At present San Domingo has no diplomatic representative in Washington. Mr. Galvan has been in Washington before, however, in a diplomatic capacity and is thoroughly familiar with trade questions. San Domingo is the ._„ most progressive of West India repub- iu j lies, and recent events have vindicated ! Gen. Grant's judgment that it would do ^ well under the wing of the | United States commercially. It wants ! to come under that wing now, though not politically. San Domingo's chief product is sugar and the trade between it and the United States is considerable. In order to keep its sugar market it is willing to make concessions for the importation of American breadstuffs, etc., and there seems little doubt that an ai- POTATOES (porbu; POKK—ML-H*. .
