Louis, March 21.—Five men were killed, one fatally injured and three slightly injured by tho explosion of a [ boiler at the Laclede firebrick works, Cheltenham.

Seven men were at work on the roof of the shed, repairing the whistle at the time. Frank Segcr, the fireman, was blown into a creek thirty feet distant,, and' was fished out some moments later. He was badly burned and scalded, but still alive. Tho fivu men men who wore killed were all terribly mangled. The noise of the explosion attracted people for miles and so many gathered at the works that the police had difficulty in keeping the crowd back, and the works had to be shut down for the day. The shock was felt for blocks away, while the report could be heard for miles. DISASTROUS EXPLOSION. Several Killed by m litirsttng Iliiilur at Eust Jordan, Mlnh.

Boyd, and on motion of Governor Boyd's counsel, confirmed judgment and dismissed the case, at Thayer's coats. This practically ends the case.

GUTHJUB, March 20. — Governor Seay has received information that tbe allotments in the Cheyenne and Arapahoe reservation will to completed within a week.

The reservation will make six new counties, and there will be over 8,000,000 acres of fine I'muHor ABOUT COMPLETED. Testimony j n the Wluiftt Invent n Cane Nearly All In. . ST. PAUL, March 19.—Except for tb« evidence of a single witness and" a tabulated statement of the price of grain in the leading markets for a series of years, both of which will be submitted on Monday, the wheat investigation is at an end, so far as the taking of testimony is concerned. The committee will plan a mode of considering the evidence, and then will begin its digest. The evidence of the day failed to establish tho oft proclaimed assertion that Frank Irons, of Minneapolis, makes the prices oi ! wheat for the entire Northwest. In fact it showed that Mr. Irons is merely a clerk for several elevator companies, and that ho does what most other clerks Jo, as he is directed by his employer^. The most important witness of the day was C. M. Amsden, who made the astonishing declaration that if for a period of four specified years the elevator companies had paid the farmers 1 cent a bushel more than they did for wheat they would have done business at a loss. He said hia company was selling its elevators as^fast as they could get 30 cents on the dollar on them. The closing hour of the cession was marked by a little scene. General Barrett had been badgering witnesses and threshing out old straw until both committee and witness were weary, and after he had been answered very tartly and in two instances profanely by Mr. Irons, the witness left the stand, and Chairman G-eissell declared to General Barrett, in substance, that he had become a nuisance. The general characterized the proceeding as an outrage.

ST. PAUL, March IS. —A brief morning session was held by the state executive committee of the Farmers' alliance. Attorney W. W. Erwin was present, and, after a conference with the committee, a resolution was adopted condemning the' alleged combination between the elevator ;;nd railroad companies, and authorizing their prosecution under the anti-trust law. Charges will be made that there is a collusion to depress the price of wheat and defraud the farmers. The committee's attorneys are Erwin and Wellington, and a committee consisting of Ignatius Donnelly, Charles Bohall and B. P. Chesley was appointed to assist the attorneys in the prosecution of the cases. The cases will bo brought in the western part of tbe state, where Ignatius Donnelly states a fair and impartial jury can be secured, and, it is said, will come up at an early date.
