From the address of the re- j tiring grand master, J. D. Gamble, i some facts are learned: Six new lodges were chartered during the year and eight dispensations were issued for lodges at Maynard, Hazleton, Deep River, Collins, West Bend, Massena, Riverside and Lake View. The grand master thought it encouraging that so few new lodges were formed, as no more weak lodges were wanted. The grand master reported that he had suspended from all masonic relation some fifteen prominent members of the order for being identified with the Cerneau branch of the Scottish rite. These suspensions were not made until an investigation had been had by the committee appointed for that purpose. The grand master, with renewed earnestness, recommended the founding of a masonic home for the needy widows and orphans of deceased masons.

It is against Sir William Gordon-Gumming. Sir Edward Clarke's epeech on Monday evidently incensed thoae against whom it was directed, and the proceedings had no more than opened this morning when Gen. Owen Williams rose and attempted to address the court on his own he- half. Justice Coleridge did not allow him to proceed, however, and Sir Edward Clarke n,slimed his summing up for the plaintiff, dealing especially with the evidence in behalf of Sir William and the question of damages. When he finished Justice Coleridge begin his final summing up of the case. He did not spare Gumming, it W as evident when he finished that the plaintiff had lost. The case was given to the jury and its verdict was rendered in fifteen minutes and with scarcely any discussion. The verdict was received by the spectators with slight hissing, which was quickly suppressed. When the verdict was announced Sir William was marvelously cool. Ho was really, to all outward appearance, the most uninterested spectator in court. Lord Middleton, his relative, who is reputed to have furnished the money for the prosecution, was quite the reverse. His face become scarlet, and he seemed hardly able to contain his choler. Sir William, with arms folded, looked straight at the jury as if merely interested in studying their general make-up. Then Sir William Gordon- Cumraing coolly donned his overcoat and hat, and strolled away with Lord Middleton. Many pitying and sympathetic glances followed him. As Sir William Gordon-Cumming entered his carriage the crowd raised a loud cheer. The effect of the verdict is that Sir William must be cashiered from the army and expelled from the clubs. The hissing with which the gallery of the court saluted the verdict was repeated outside by an excited crowd throng-ing the corridors. The defendants on leaving the courtroom were were addressed to them until within their carriages. In his charge to the jury, referring to the prince of Wales' connection with the case, Lord Coleridge said: "People m;iy say what they like but they, are all very much pleased to have such guests as the prince of Wales, Lord Coventry and lord this and lord that in their houses [Laughter. | Then as to the positimi of the prince of Wales and as to the desire for secrecy manifested by the party at Tranby Croft, was it not natural that with . such nionarchial institutions as ours such a wish should have existed?

Surely it was not to be said against a man that under these circumstances he was anxious to keep the scandal quiet."

The grand secretary read an eloquent paper on the life of the late Albert Pike, the head of the southern jurisdiction on the Scottish rite. The secretary pronounced Pike a lawyer of the old school, an editor of great ability and a poet of old Horace's lineage. R. G. Phelps, of Atlantic, was elected grand master, and the meeting of the grand lodge next year will be at Dubuque. One of the best literary characters oi Iowa, Hon. D. N. Richardson, editor oi the Davenport Democrat, has made both ealth and fame in the editorial business. He has traveled in every country and clime, and has written an absorbing- and interesting book of travels, and is now occasionally lecturing throughout the state before high schools and literary societies on hia travels in India and other countries. His lectures are classic. They are superior to any of those given by professionals. The political event for the past week was the meeting of the new political organization known as the "people's" paifcy in a state convention' at Dea Moines, where a full ticket was nominated: A. J. Westfall, of Woodbury, for governor, and Walter Scott, of Appanoose county, for lieutenant governor. The. Cincinnati THEKH is on exhibition in Detroit a most remarkable freak of nature in the form of a pebble, one side of which is a miniature likeness of a face bearing the imprints of sorrow. This little stone, •which is about an inch long and three•quarters of an inch wide, was found on the roadway leading to the cross on the summit of Kofelspitze, a mountain overhanging the village of Oberammer- ,frau, and is held in reverence by the simple villagers, who consider it their guardian spirit.

Mr. Westfall was a candidate for congress in the Eleventh district last year, and Mr. Scott is the chief of the miners' organization in the state. The principal local events at Des Moines during the past week were the arrivals of excursion parties from the northern part of the state over the Chicago, St. Paul & Kansas City raiload: the excursionists having been given low rates to enable them to visit the capitol city, and for themselves see the boundless evidences of growth and prosperity that are visible on every hand. There are now in progress one thousand residences and many business blocks; two of which blocks will cost, when'completed, nearly one million dollars.

If the prince did not believe the story he would have made it a point to show the world that he did not believe it. But he (the prince) had not met the plaintiff since. A military tribunal, the chief justice added, in substance, would judge if the proceedings with which Gen. Williams i and Lord Coventry were concerned | formed an infraction of the rules and j regulations governing the army,so with ! that point the jury need not trouble | themselves. He, Lord Coleridge, did ! not know if the gentlemen just men- I tionecl had or had not broken any mili- | tary rule, but if they had done 'so, in I the chief justice's opinion, they had | done so with the best of motives. j Lord Coleridge also sakl that he ' did not know why the j^irv had been informed that it was "impossible for the names of the prince of Wales and Gen. Owen Williams to remain on the army list if the' name of Sir William Gordon Gumming- was eliminated therefrom. This had nothing to do with the case. The jury's verdict would not have the slightest ef- j feet upon the military authorities in one way or the other so far as the gentlemen mentioned were concerned. Lord Coleridge, referring to, the criticism which has been heaped upon, the prince of Wales since the affiair first became public for the share he—the heir- apparent—had taken in the Tranby Croft episode, said that England was free country hut one.

Engineer James mond, *vho was killed in the recent wreclc at Specht's ferry, experienced a premonition that he was dead or terribly hurt. She was asleep in her room at home. At about 19:45 she says she was awakened by two terrible cries from her husband. As she awoke she felt on his side of the bed, but he was not there. As soon as she became fully awake she knew he wajt gone and was not expected to return before daylight, but those cries of her husband still rang in her ears, atfd lighting a lamp she paced the floor till morning. Then calling to a neighbor, she said that her husband was either killed or terribly injured, and at the time she had not received the least intelligence of the accident. Excitement In a Prison. There was considerable excitement in the Fort Madison penitentiary dining hall at dinner time recently. A convict who imagined ho had a grievance at Guard Phinney threw a vinegar bottle at him, missing the intended mark, the heavy bottle being broken against the wall. The convict was promptly knocked down and dragged out to the hospital, but for some time there was an evident disposition on tho part of other convicts to participate in the little exhibition of prison discipline. Land for Homesteads. On July 0 there will be open for entry in Iowa the 15,000 acres of forfeited lands within the indemnity limits of the grants for the Sioux City '& St. Paul, Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul and the Cedar Rapids & Missouri railroad companies. A large part of these lands is occupied by settlers who have been innocent purchasers. Such settlers will bo given the first opportunity to make entries on the land they hold. Masonic Communication. j At the forty-eighth annual communication of the masonic grand lodge of Iowa, held, in Cedar Rapids, the following officers were elected for the ensuing year: R. a.

The board of supervisors of Woodbury county has been ordered to make good the deficit in the permanent school fund, which has been caused by the transfer of money to the bridge fund. The deficit now amounts to $78,000. The county has no funds available for this purpose. It was said that there had been similar transfers, which were totally illegal, in other counties. Coal Running: Short. The coal famine in western Iowa was growing more threatening daily. The wholesale, dealers in Mason City had niany orders stacked up which they were unable to fill, and it didn't look as if there was any immediate probability of their being filled. It would necessitate the shutting down in a few days of all steam elevators, foundries, etc. Burled Wlille In a Trance. The exhuming of the remains of Miss Alice Woodward at Douds lias revealed a startling fact. The young lady's body was found to be lying face down in the coffin, and the appearance of the corpse clearly indicated that a terrible death struggle had occurred in the graive. It was believed the young lady was- buried while in a trance. SHE WAS FAITHFUL.

LOKDON, June ll. --Sir William Gordon Gumming was married at 11 o'clock a. m. Wednesday in the fashionable Holy Trinity church at Chelsea, to Miss Florence Garner, daughter of the late Commo« dore William Garner, of New York city. Lord Thurlow gave the bride away. Maj. Vesey Dawson, of the Coldstream guards, was the best man. Rev. Robert Eyeton officiated. The marriage was practically a secret marriage, Only twelve people wore present at the ceremony. The bride looked charming and happy, and Sir William was proud-looking, cool and entirely self-possessed. There was no trace in his personal appearance of depression or emotion resulting from the ver diet in the baccarat case. Lady and Sir William Gordon Gumming left this city shortly after the ceremony for the bridegroom's estate, Altyre, near Forres, in Scotland, where they will spend the honeymoon. It is expected that Sir William and his wife will visit the United States in the autumn. Lady Gordon Gumming is the eldest daughter of the late Commodore William Garner, of N ew York who was drowned in July, 1870, with his wife, through the capsizing of Mr. Garner's yacht Mohawk. When Sir William was convinced that a public exposure of the Tranby Croft affair was inevitable he told Miss Garner all about it and offered to release her from the engagement. She refused to believe the charges made against her lover and said she did not wish to be released. Sir William insisted urging upon his fiancee that he might not be able to convince the world of his innocence, and that if he could not succeed in vindicating himself his position would -be a very different one from what it was when he became engaged to her; that she would suffer seriously if she was the wife of what society would look upon as a ruined and disgraced man. After-this conversation with his betrothed Sir William even went so far as to tell two or three" people who asked him about it that the report he was to marry Miss Garner was untrue. The young woman's relations also took Sir William's view of the case and urged her to at least wait for the result of the trial, but Miss Garner was obdurate. She loved Sir William, she said, and believed in his innocence no matter what the verdict might be. If he broke off the engagement it would not be because she wanted him to. DEATH. laities in the main not only a' a censorious the' prince of every other person of rank, was continually made a subject of public comment. "The prince of Wales," Lord Coleridge added, "goes through many boring ceremonies, and what if he did introduce baccarat into the great house?" In the absence of any portion of the scandal being directly connected with the prince of Wales, Lord Coleridge could not imagine how any harm could be done to the monarchy, to the prince or to anybody else. The lord chief justice wound up his charge to the jury with the following emphatic and not to be easily misunderstood remark, after what he had already said: "I send you, gentlemen of A he ART GLEANINGS. THE highest price at a recent sale of Van Marcke's pictures was §6,300. AK English society of portrait painters has been formed with twenty-five members.

The queen does not attempt to conceal the fact that she is angry with every one connected with the baccarat scandal and the effects of the royal displeasure may yet be felt in several quarters. The denunciation of the prince of Wales by the newspaper press, especially his denunciation by the tory press, has caused a tremendous sensation throughout Great Britain, and it is freely asserted that the revelations made during the trial of the baccarat scandal suit in court are judged to have done more to imperil the monarchy than any event which has taken place for many years in England. , th ? Wfl'uld hold its IOWA PROHIBITIONISTS. They Hold a Convention at Des Moines and Nominate a Full State Ticket. DKS MOINES, la., June 11.—The prohibitionists held their state convention here Wednesday. The following state^ ticket was nominated: For governor;" I. T. Gibson, of Salqin; lieutenant governor, J. G. Little, of Perry; superintendent of public instruction, Mrs. M. H. Dunham, of Burlington; railway commissioner, C. S. Hart, of Colon; supreme judge, Daniel B. Turney, of Bennett. The platform declares the Scriptures to be the basis of all civil law; favors prohibition, state and national; favors a state constabulary; declares the transportation, importation or handling of liquor- illegal; favors free coinage of American silver and gold, with 100 cents in the silver dollar, favors the abolition of national banks as banks of issue, the election of president by direct vote, stricter immigration laws, woman suffrage, a graduated income tax, and the abolishment of the internal revenue system. Confidence is expressed in the National Woman's Christian Temperance Union. A resolution favoring the payment to soldiers of the loss they sustained by reason of the depreciation of greenbacks during the war was defeated on the ground that it would offend the southern prohibitionists, although the speakers defended the resolution as just. A state central committee was elected composed of one member from each district and other plans formed to carry on an active campaign. The action of the people's party in dodging the prohibitory issue both in the Cincinnati and Des Moines platforms was commented upon and denounced.

Macdonald, were borne from the senate chamber, where they had lain in solemn state since morning, to St. Alban's church, where the funeral services were held, and thence to the depot, where -they were placed on board a special train to bear them to Kingston for interment. It was a perfect June day. All the public buildings were shrouded in black, Hags fluttered at half mast and all places of business were closed. Shortly after noon the officers of the state and other high dignitaries who were to take part in the funeral began to arrive. Outside the military and civic bodies took up the positions assigned to them. The governor general and staff reached the parliament buildings just prior to 1 o'clock, and all was soon in readiness. The casket was lifted from its resting place by six members of the dominion. police and borne out to the hearse. The cortege then foimed and, amid the booming of five-minute guns and the solemn tolling of funeral bolls the march to the church began. First came a squad of dominion police, followed by a squad of dragoon guards and regimental bands of music. The officiating clergymen followed in their robes of office. Then came tin- undertakers, followed by the pall-bearers, the members of the late premier's cabinet. The dominion police, who acted as bearers, came next; Then came carriages filled witli floral tributes, after which came thd hearse, drawn by four horses. Two coaches filed with mourners followed Then came the governor general and staff, followed by tha licuten ant governors of provinces oi' Ontario, Quebec, Nova Scotia- and New Brunswick; the clergy, headed by Archbishop Duhamel, of Ottawa, enrobed in purple ant» black, preceded by the members of the ministry.

Tha members of the senate followed, and Speaker White and the members of tin house of commons came next. Tlw nembers of the provincial governments and assemblies followed. Then canm <he consuls of foreign powers, followed jy the deputies general of the varioui. mblic departments. The members oi'. the civil service were followed by thu aw societies, robed in their gowns. Thu officials of the Grand Trunk and Cana- lian Pacific railway companies were ollowed by officers of the militia in uniform. The mayor and corporation 'f the city of Ottawa were followed by he mayor and corporations of Montreal, Kingston, Toronto and other places. Then came a host of political club% ollowed by private carriages. The cortege was the largest ever seen in Canada, and was truly a noble tribute to the dead. After imposing services at St. Alban's church the cortege proceeded to the depot, where the body was placed on a special train for Kingston. AN EDITOR SLAIN. Assassination of a Journalist at Bntte City, Mont. HELENA, Mont., June 11.— Editor J. Penrdse, of the Butte Mining Journal, was murdered in that city about 1 o'clock Wednesday morning. He had been at his home during the night, but at that hour he left for down-town. A' few steps from his own house he met a friend to whom he spoke and passed on. Penrose went a block further and at the corner of Galena and Montana streets he w&«> struck on the head with a billet cl wood, knocked down and a revolvtt held to his left temple ana fired, the bullet entering his brain and causing instant death. Three men were sue a running from the scene of murder, hit t there is scant clew to their identity. Penrose had of late been waging u violent personal attack on "profession. al workingmen." He was a fearless man and let no consideration of his own life deter the expression of an opinion in his paper. The trouble grew out of his opposition to the eight-hour bill introduced in the last legislature, of which he was a member. Some think he was killed by personal enemies whom he had as> sailed in this warfare. For several years Penrose worked ia the coal mines at Streator, 111., afterward going to Virginia City and Eureka, Nev., and getting into the newspaper business. He moved to Butte several years ago and hdd been in the newspaper busi ness ever since. Named by Harrison. WASHINGTON, June 11.— The presl dent has . made the following ap pointments" Leonard W.
