S SESSIONS, JOHN PAUL LUMBER GO. SUCCESSORS TO J. J. WILSON. Office and yard on Dodge street, south of State, ALGONA, IOWA. Handles the best of all descriptions of A cold-blooded murder wns committed in Dubuque Inst Friday morning, the particulars of which are given by the Times: Jako Frith and Henry Talcott, police officers in tho employ of tho Milwaukee roiul, wore murdered this morning about 2:15 o'clpck. About that time tho engincerof aswitch engine stopped his engine in answer to the signal of a man. When he stepped to tho ground ho found the man to be OHl- cer Frith, who was bleeding from the face, and tho engineer just caught him in time to keep him from falling. Tho engineer asked him if ho was shot and he nodded his head. yes. He was taken to ono side of tho track whore, in about 20 minutes, he died without being able to speak a word. Search was made and Officer Talcott was found dying on tho platform of a coach on tho track opposite tho engine. Ho lived 10 minutes after tho shooting was supposed to have taken place, but was unconscious. The Interior of tho coach denoted that a terrible struggle took place inside between several parties, of whom tho officers wore two of thorn. Glass was broken and strewed all ovor tho floor and things were in bad disorder. The scene suggests the idea that the officers were trying, to arrest tramps who were sleeping in there and a fight ensued. The Milwaukee company is making vigorous efforts to apprehend the murderers. bridge across tho Sioux river was wrenched from the piers and washed up against the river bank. The iron rods were twisted and bent out of shape. A large elevator was demolished and tho debris carried across tho railroad tracks and deposited on tho site of a lumber yard, while the lumber yard and buildings were carried back and deposited where tho elevator stood* Cars loaded with stone that were standing on tho railroad tracks were picked up by tho wind and turned completely over. Nearly every building in the town was more or less damaged. Chimneys wore blown down and crashed through tho roofs, and many roofs blown olT mid carried far from tho houses. Tho estimated damage to tho town is §50,000. Byron Webster of tho Marshalltown Statesman lias received a dispatch from Washington notifying him of his appointment as postmasterof Marshalltown, vico S. C. McFarland, resigned. This closes a very spirited contest for this position between Webster and ex* Mayor Anson, each representing different factions of local democracy that have been at loggerheads for years. Dubuquo and LeMars can mayors for tho first years. have time republi- many in Geo. W. Clayton, a Burlington traveling man, is in a heap of trouble. He was arrested Saturday and arraigned before United States Commissioner Cooper in that city, on a serious charge. Ho is accused of mailing an obscene publication to a young lady, tho daughter of a merchant at Lone Tree, la. The book was filthy in tho extreme, not only in words but in .the illustrations. Tho young lady had an idea who sent the book and became certain when a letter cavno from Clayton asking its return. On advice of the inspectors she replied, asking permission to keep it a while longer that n friend might read it. Clayton fell into tho trap and responded giving the asked- for permission and throwing in a lot of suggestive remarks and observations. Ho is bound over to the federal grand jury in the sum of $2,000. A Madrid, Boone county man lately took a rifle and undertook to quell a cat concert in his back yard. He. suc- ceded, and the next morning found that he had killed a colt belonging to ono of his neighbors. The forthcoming debate between tho universities of Iowa and Minnesota promises to be one of the most interesting of the year's educational events. It is to be held in Minneapolis the latter part of May, Minnesota to have the selection of the question, the choice of sides going to Iowa. Minnesota has selected the subject: Resolved, that the United States should own and operate the telegraph system. Her debaters will be A. M. Berseth, from the Delta Sigma; T. McElligutt, from tho law literary, and C. S. Godvvard, from the Hermean Literary society. The Iowa debaters will probably be led by H. M. Mason, who won first place in the Iowa state oratorical contest, and who represents Iowa in the inter-state oratorical contest.' ______ The Denison whist club is winning quite a reputation at that game. Carroll recently sent a delegation over and they went back defeated by 170 points. . The Cherokee Democrat tells of a horse that makes regular trips to school and back home, a distance of about two miles, without a driver. He cannot, as yet, hitch himself up or fasten the crupper. But there is hope for him to improve in that respect, as he is still young. Tho Dubuquo Stamping and Enameling works, just completed, were burned last week. Tho fire was caused by an explosion of crude oil used to heat tho furnaces. Tho two men attending woro badly burned, but may recover. Loss estimated at $70,000; insurance $40,000, which was the limit. The factory had been in operation two weeks and had a fine exhibit of waro for tho world's fair, which was destroyed. The company has decided to rebuild. Orders for goods were on hand to run to January next. The Northwestern State bank at Sibley failed last Thursday. There are various statements as to the assets and liabilities, but it is most probable that tho local depositors will bo the heavy losers. H. A. Miller, state bank examiner, has boon Investigating the condition of the Sibloy bank. His report to tho auditor of state, published in the Register, indicates that the bank was in bad shape. This is the first Iowa state bank failure since 1860. John R. Shaffer, secretary, says the prospects for the state fair are already excellent. He has been in correspondence with a large number ol tho principal exhibitors at former fairs, who say they are coming to this one the same as usual. Some are going to both the Iowa fair and tho world's fair. There is no reason, Mr. Shaffer thinks, to doubt tho filling: of all the important classes by first class exhibitors. Tho special circular on the speed department was sent out the other day, offering $10,000 in purses for tho races this year. Tho matter of railway rates has not yet been taken up by the passenger association, and will not bo until after May 1, when passenger rates will be in a more settled condition.

He had been drinking heavily for some days prior to the accident and it was thought his falling was accidental, as he was seen leaning over the guard rail a few minutes before he was heard to strike the water.
