The centre of the cob, instead of being pithy, is filled with well developed kernels of corn. Farmers in the vicinity, of Linn Grove are fitting up corn with self binders. They do good work, and the improvement over the old method is wonderful. Ole F. Bergen, living near Ridgeway, lost by fire his entire crop of grain and hay; also two stables and a new granary just completed the previous day. Cause unknown. G.

Irish Nationalists In Convention at Chi«ago Adopt a New Constitution. CHICAGO, Oct. 8.—No business was done at the morning session of the Irish Nationalist convention, owing to the committees not having completed their reports. At the afternoon session, however, biasiness went through with a rush. The new constitution of the League was submitted and adopted. In the main it la a repetition of the old one, except that it cuts aloof from the home party and makes the League a distinctively American affair, without responsibility to the parliamentary party. A clause to the effect that Irishmen should not purchase English made goods or patronize tradesmen that sell them, was greeted with loud applause. The constitution also provides that the League should be governed by a cabinet of seven together with the president and the secretary. The Resolutions Adopted. In the resolutions adopted, the League testifies its devotion to the flag of the United States and love for the institutions of this glorious countro; extends sympathy to President Fitzgerald and Vice-President Martin in their illness, and has the following to say regarding the present situation in Ireland and the use of force: We regret the conditions now existing in Ireland and attribute it to their unfortunate tendency toward hero worship and one-man denomination, which we hope to see obliterated from the public life of Ireland. We have no desire, nor do we deem it wise, necessary or patriotic to pass judgment upon the questions now so unhappily separating our brethern in the old land. We have heretofore tendered our good offices in the adjustment of those differences and that tender has been wholly disregarded by the contending elements, but we may and must speak out the opinions and wishes of the pcoDle whom we represent and Bay that it is the duty of Irish and all other oppressed people to seek freedom by peaceable methods, and only when such methods have been fully tried and found wanting are nations and peoples justified in resorting to force; but we strongly and emphatically assert that it is equally the duty to prepare for every emergency and stand ready to aid our kindred in every manly '.way, recognized and commended by usage ia obtaining freemen's privileges in a land consecrated to freedom by the heroic sacrifices of centuries. As an addition, Judge Donnelly, of Wisconsin, on behalf of a minority of the committee, submitted a resolution which instructed the incoming executive to recognize the majority of the parliamentary party or the Justin McCarthy element. McCarthy's name was greeted with slight cheering and prolonged hissing. A prolonged and at times uproarious debate ensued. In the result the addition was defeated by 518 to 84. Officers Elected. Hon. M. V. Gannon, of Nebraska, was elected president; Patrick Boyle, Toronto, first vice president; M. D. Gallagher, New York City, second -vice president; E. J. O'Connor, Augusta, Ga., third vice president, and William Ly- mad, New York City, treasurer. Secretary Sutton, of Sutton, of Lincoln, Neb., was reappointed and the convention adjourned sine die.

Eight Instantly Killed and a frozen fieri* ously Injured—Moat of the Vlctlnti Jjyatanders Who Were Struck br Fly- Ing Debris—Miner* Entombed, CHICAGO, Oct. 4,—Eight persons were almost instantly killed and a dozen others injured by the explosion of the tug Charles Parker in the south branch of the river near the Archer avenue bridge. Three of tha dead belonged to the crew of the boat, while the others were bystanders who were killed by flying debris. The Parker, together with the tugs VanSohaack, Perry and Shields, had been working all day endeavoring to free the propeller #. S. Pickands which and grounded in the south draw of the bridge. They had puffed and pulled away almost incessantly until shortly before 5 o'clock when, with comparatively little steam, the boiler of the Parker exploded'. Columns of water were thrown into the air falling upon the other tugs, drenching and blinding the crews. A moment later, the debris showered opon the ground on either side of the river! Pieces of broken iron and woodwork fell upon the docks and streets. At the time Archer avenue, near the scene of the accident, was crowded. The noise of the explosion and the falling wreck caused a terrible panic. When the spectators partially recovered their senses, it was found that eight persons were dead, while many more injured, some of them probably fatally. ' ; The Dead Are: MRS. MARY RICE, aged 23. BARBARA RICE, 18 months old, daughter of Mrs. Rice. SAMUEL SAWYER, aged 21, switchman for the Illinois Steel company. BARTHOLOMEW CURTIN, aged 10. JONES B. CARTER, captain of tug; body not recovered.

One Taken Out Dead, Four Injured and Seven Still in the Mine. GLENCARBON, Pa., Oct. 4.—Great excitement in this vicinity was created when reports came that the Richardson mines had closed all in the miners were lost. Later word came that the west gangway of the Crosby vein had closed and that twelve men were entombed. Rescuing parties were immediately formed, and on entering the mines the body of Michael Grant was found on the gangway. He was found to be fatally injured. John McGaskie was taken out dead and Thomas Conville and James Breunan seriously, and Martin Kelly, mine foreman, slightly injured. These were the only ones recovered before reaching the enclosed IN THE RUSH_POR LOTS. tttftftf &«»««t«A Killed At the Opening mt the Town filte of Chandler. GtJTHMK, O. T., Sept., 80.—Courier! who arrived here give the following particulars and horrible details which attended th« opening of the government town site of Chandler, in the Sac and Fox reservation which was opened to settlement one week ago. The town site was opened to settlement at 12 m., and the scene which followed the volley of musketry which announced the opening of the town Bite beggars de- •scription. A mass of 8,000 excited men and women intent upon securing a lot had gathered about the boundary of the town. At 13 o'clock sharp the signal was given, and with a mighty yell from 3,000 throats, and, amid the crocking of whips, and volleys of oaths, shouts and curses, a conglomerate mass of men and women on horse and foot Rushed like Maniacs for the town lots. The line was one mile long on each side and half long on each end. The rush was towar lot 88, which was reserved for a court house. As the angles of the advancing lines met, many riders were unhorsed and hurled pellmell into the road. Many persons are reported killed, and others as having received severe injuries. Miss Daisy, a representative of the Guthrie News, was thrown from her horse at the beginning of the race,,and, striking her head on a rock, was killed. As there were three or four times as many people as there were lots the result could be easily foretold. There are from three to six claimants for a great many of the good lots. An Indian killed a white man over a quarrel in one of the tents where liquor was being sold. ANOTHER OF CUPID'S CAPERS. Colonel ITorsythe and Dr. Dallas Baohe Will Marry Each Other's Daughters. PHILADELPHIA, Oct. 5.—News comes from the West that Colonel Forsythe, formerly of General Sheridan's staff, has just succeeded in winning the hand of the daughter of his old friend, Dr. Dallas Bache, a physician, and that Miss Forsyth, the colonel's daughter, has become engaged to Dr. Bache. Each of the men is 60 years old, and each has been a widower about the same length of time. Neither of the young women is much over 20 years of age. Dr. Bache is a direct descendant of Benjamin Franklin, and is connected with the family of the late Vice President George M. Dallas. MASSACKE OF MEXICANS, BLOODV INDIAN OUTBREAK IN THE DISTRICT OF TULAMENQO. Bed* Attack ft White Settlement and MaftMcre Two Hundred Feople—The Trouble an Outgrowth at a Dldpute Orer land—Troops Start for the Scene. SAN ANTONIO, Tex., Oct. .—John H* Parton, an American who for the past two years has been engaged in the mining business near Metztillian situated in the etate of Hidalgo, Mexico, has arrived here bringing information of a bloody Indian outbreak which has for some time been in progress in the district of Tulamengo in that state. The trouble is an outgrowth of a dispute between several colonies of Spaniards and Germans and the Indians, the new settlers attempting to settle on the land of natives. The Indians resisted their attempt to evict them, and much bloodshed has resulted. Mr. Parton eays that a few days before his departure, a settlement of whites was attacked by Indians and nearly 200 men, women and children were massacred. Several battalions of troops are on their way to the scene of trouble. One or Two Were Killed. NEW YORK, Oct. 5.—A banker of Guatemala, in a private letter to Mr. Ramon Velez, of The Revist Popular, under date of Sept. 16, says: "The 16th of September, which ought to hava passed with pleasant memories, as it was the anniversary of our independence, turned out very sadly because of fighting between the two parties. Many were wounded by balls, daggers, rocks and the garrote. But only one or two were killed outright. KILLED SIRE AND SON. NOW HOLD YOUR CORN. That i« th« Ad*l«e Said to B« Given in th« latest Circular to the Fat-met* CHICAGO, Oct. 8.—-The morning HeWI flays that a rough draft of an article advising the farmers of the country to hold their c6rn for higher prices has been made, and that it is expected to appear in full in the next issue of The Farmers'Voice. It advises the sale of" only so much of the crop as is ^ actually necessary for home consumption, until the foreign demand puts prices up, then to sell only so much as is necessary to supply the demand and again lockup the cribs till prices go up again. It continues: "Brokers are aware that the foreign demand will be 80 per cent greater than last year, when 88,877,955 bushels were taken abroad from all American ports, which will make, at a moderate estimate, 108,891,041 bushels for this year. Owing to the shortness of the wheat crop abroad these figures are probably on the safe side many millions. "The months of the heaviest export during the year 1893 will be in February, March, April, May and June. The present European crop will supply the needs of the foreigners until after January, when the demand will be made upon America. If the farmer follows his usual habit of hurrying his corn to market during November and December he will miss this foreign demand, and brokers who buy and store this grain will make the money." THREE CONVENTIONS. Ten Thousand Miners Out. PITTSBURG, Oct. 1.—A general strike of railroad coal miners of Pittsburg district has been inaugurated in accordance with the action taken at Wednesday's convention. Reports have not been received from all the mines, but it is estimated that nearly 10,000 men quit work. They are firm for the 3$ cent rate and they assert they will remain out until it is conceded by all the operators. A long and bitter struggle is probable. . Difference Over Management of a Farm Causes Double Murder. OMAHA, Oct. 1.—Farmer Baldwin, living fourteen miles west of Blair, was shot and instantly killed by a stepson named Long. Long also killed a son of Baldwin at the same time, Baldwin was the father of two sons and a daughter, and these with Long lived on the farm with him. Recently Baldwin decided to remove to Blair and to leave his sons and daughter to manage the farm. Long was entirely out of the arrangement, and in an altercation about the matter Long seized the gun and shot Baldwin and one of the boys and made his escape. The county is in arms hunting for him.

Prince Albert Edward is | a Mason, and a petition from the Masons BefeJW , to death, A Little Daughter Arrives at the Cleveland Home. NEW YORK, Oct. 8.—Mrs. Grover Cleveland has become a mother. The welcome new comer in the ex-president's family is a daughter. At the Mills building, where Mr. Cleveland has his law office, it was apparent to visitors who asked for him during the morning that something of more than ordinary interest kept him at home. Along about 11 o'clock the ex-president's secretary came to the office after Mr. Cleveland's personal mail and related the reason for the ex-president's absence. Everybody about the office was smiling when it became known that the ex-president was the father of a pretty eight-pound, fair- haired girl, who had arrived in the night. Mr. Cleveland's law partners and Colonel Dan Lament, who has an office in the sama building, confirmed the report, and after the close of the stock market, and while the lawyers who have their offices in the big buildings on Broad and Wall street, were going home little else was talked of. Colonel Lamont and other personal friends of the Clevelands at once sent their congratulations and rejoiced to receive assurances from Mr. Cleveland that both mother and child were doing well. At the residence of the ex-president on Madison avenue the servants simply confirmed the report, but would venture no other information than that the event occurred at 5 o'clock a. m.; that it had been expected for two days, and that Mrs. Cleveland is at present doing very well. MRS. LESLIE MARRIED. The New York Woman Journalist Weds a Brother <if Oscar Wilde. NEW YORK, Oct. 4.—Mrs. Frank Leslie was married Sunday by the Rev. C. E. Deems to William C. Kingsbury Wilde, M. A., of London, eldest son of the late Sir William Wilde, M. D., of Dublin. Mr. Wilde is a brother of Oscar Wilde. The services were private. There "Was no Revolution. NEW YORK, Oct. 3.—A special cable dispatch to the Herald from San Salvador says the rumor about the revolution at Guatemala on Sept. 15 is absolutely without foundation. There was no revolt there on that date. All the other statements are just as untruthful. Everything in that country is quiet. Oil for Fuel on tocomotlvea. WASHINGTON. Oct. 4.—Reports are received by the bureau of American republic to the effect that the experiment of using petroleum for fuel oa the Oroya railway in Peru have prev«n successful.

BRUSSELS, Sept. 30.—General Boulanger committed suicide about noon on the grave ef his mistress, Madame Bonnemain. He stood alone by the grave for some time, appearing to be deepl} affected by sorrowful recollections. An attendant, who had •espectfully remained at some distance, suddenly BOULANGER. heard a sharp Te- port. Hastening to the spot he found Boulanger lying dead upon the ground witn a revolver clenched in his right hand. A hasty examination of the body showed that he had placed the weapon to his right ear and fired. The deed has caused intense excitement among the followers of the dead general both here and in Paris. Although General Boulanger was undoubtedly closer to poverty than he had been for many years, yet the evidence indicates that this was not one of his principal motives for suicide. Since the death of Madame Bonnemain he has been deeply despondent. He seemed to have lost all his vigor and seemed to be living in a desultory and aimless fashion. He "would pass whole days in a morose silencef rom which his niece and other-friends vainly sought to arouse him. He was even seen to shed tears while he gazed continually at a photograph of his dead mistress. Instead of overcoming this feeling with the lapse of time he has yielded to it more and more. His ambition forsook him imd ho seemed to take no interest in French politics, about the smallest incident he used to show the most lively interest. His suicide, therefore, is not a surprise to his ntimates, although sudden and sensa- ional to the public. South Dakota Democrats and Independents and Republicans Meet. MITCHELL, S.
