The police arrested the Messiah down iti Red Cloud's camp last week When they pulled the white blanket off they found an intelligent but harmless crank, A. B. Hopkins by name, from Nashua, Iowa. He claimed he was there in the in interest of tho police, and that he had come because the Indians misinterpreted his message. He wanted to go to the Bad Lands, but Agent Royer changed the address to Chadron, starting him under an escort of police. Some of the Indians were indignant over his arrest, while others laughed and said he was a crazy fool. None of the chiefs take any stock in him,,, and Red Cloud walked up to him and said: "You go home. You are no son of God." The Messiah claims that he will go to the Bad Lands. One hundred of the friendless have left on their peace missions. They took three wagon loads of rations. Another report says: " Albert C. Hopkins, tho pretended Indian Messiah, is in the city en route from Pine Ridge to Brule. He was conducted off tho Pine Ridge reservation by order of Agent Royer, who thought he would make more disturbance than he would do good. His scheme as announced heretofore, is to impersonate the Messiah and get the Indians to accept him, and then in his capacity as savior command peace. Hopkins laid his plan before Gen. Miles at Chicago a few days ago, but the general would take no stock in his schemes. Hopkins talks rational enough on all other subjects. He leayes for Chamberlain in the morning." lis & St. Louis road, and who for the past year has been assistant to President Allen Manvel of the Atchison system, has just been elected third vice president of that company, Mr. Springer is regarded as one of the shrewdest lawyers in the west, and is also a thorough Irafflc man.

Last week Monday night at eight o'clock Dan Brenan was arrested for drunkenness and lodged in jail at Emmetsburg. Tuesday morning: Mrs. H. H. Jacobs, wife of the sheriff, went in to give him his breakfast, when she discovered the room and cells filled with smoke. She called for help and tho man walked out into tho hallway. His bedding he had in some way set on fire and there being no air, it gradually burnt up with no blaze. After breakfast Mrs. Jacobs went in and discovered the bedding in the other cell all' burnt and still no blaze. The man was given a cup of coffee, drank it and soon rose to his feet and said, "I have heart trouble send for a doctor." Dr. Powers was called in but the man only lived a few minutes. The Emmetsburg writer who reports the case says: "He must have had matches in his pocket, as there was no light in the jail, and the cell door was not locked, so he could have walked into the large room if he had been sober enough. No blame is attached to the officers, but it is strange that two or three saloon keepers can sell the whisky that causes so many deaths, and openly defy the law that would have to be obeyed if temperance people would take a stand against such an outrage. Down with the saloon! Six deaths from whisky since Jan, 1, 1890, in this town alone," Charles City has won the location of the new German English college which is to be moved from Galena to some point in the west in the spring. The real estate owners and business men of Charles City have pledged $30,000 to the board of trustees of the college in order to get them to locate there. Representatives of that city had visited Galeny and ascertained from the business men of that place that the college contributed at least $10,000 a year to the volume of business in that city. Storm Lake also made an effort to secure the location of the college, and offered $25,000 in cash and 10 acres of land valued at $5,000, but their proposition was not considered with favor, as they only have one railroad there. Rev. F. S. Buenger of LeMars has created a'storm of comment by refusing to read the burial service or iri any way take part in the funeral over tho body of Volga Eldges, a member of the congregation, who died from the effects of whisky. Mr. Buenger has been vigorously advocating total abstinence, and says that he took the course to more emphatically impress upon his people his abhorrence of strong drink and those who use it. The Iowa State Horticultural society will meet in annual session in the horticultural rooms of the capitol, • Dea Moines, Tuesday, Wednesday, .and Thursday, Jan. 20, 21, and 22, 1891. Programme and premium list will be sent to all applicants. All members of the state and district societies will receive them as soon as published. It ,is expected that the usual reduced railroad and hotel rates will be secured. A good attendance is expected, and the liberal premium list will bring out a, good display of fruits and flowers. The second attempt to wreck the west-bound Milwaukee passenger train was perpetrated-Friday night. As No. 1 was about half way between Rudd and Floyd Crossing, running at about thirty miles an hour, the engine plunged into a large pile of ties and stones piled upon the track. The engine was mashed, but no further damage was done. This is the train west through Algona in the morning. Monday while Big Foot's band of Indians was being disarmed they suddenly drew hidden .rifles and opened fire on the soldiers at short range. A large number were killed, and in the fight which ensued nearly all the Indians were killed. There were bul; 120 Indians and they fought with knives, tomahawks and clubs in their desperation. Last night's papers report a big fire raging in the heart of London. A big fire is also reported at Burlington, this , state. OFFICERS. AMBIIOSK A.CALL, D. H. HDTOHIKS, President. Vice President, J.

A drove of cattle was being driven over a crossing near Qeo, R. Feet's farm as the Worthington mixed train approached. Owing to a curve the cattle were not discovered by the engineer until the train was close at hand. To stop the train was impossible, so Engineer Post gave her full head and tried to clear the track. One' of the animals passed under the wheels. The engine and one box car stayed in the channel, while two freights, the baggage car, a«d passenger coach were derailed and rolled down an embankment, a distance of perhaps ten feet. No one was seriously hurt. The Greene county farmers who offered a reward of $300 for the capture of Boswell, the cattle thief, now refuse to pay it, claiming the offer was good for only 90 days.
