tTP^EB DES MOINES: ALOONA, IOWA, WEDNESDAY: OCTOBER 4 V 3893,. DURING THE WEEK, With a roar ana rush the waters of Miehigamrne river broke through the the Mansfield mine, at Crystal Falls, Mich., drowning twenty-eight of the employes at work directly under the stream. The eighteen men \vho escaped were employed in the lower levels. None of the bodies have been recovered dnd it is 'believed it'will be necessary to divert the channel of the river before they can be secured. The property is worth upwards of $000,000. In a recent address to his Midlothian constituents at Edinburg, Gladstone severely arraigned the house of lords. In course of his speach he said: "Home rule might by some be regarded as a failure. Depend upon it, it is not a failure." A determined nation would not be baffled by a phalanx of 500 peers, "if the house of lords ever mean to force a dissolution of parliament, it may depend upon it that the Irish question will not bo the only one considered, but that their own independent and irresponsible existence will be taken into consideration." Massachusetts democrats, at their recent convention, re-nominated John D. Russell for governor and Jas. B. Carroll for lieutenant-governor by acclamation. The remainder of the ticket is as follows: Secretary of state, J. W. McDonald; attorney general, C. S, Little, auditor, J. D. Wheelwright. Just at noon a few days since a man named Cassms Bclden, who had but a short time ago been released from an insane asylum, appeared in the gallery of the Chicago Board of Trade, drew a revolver and fired five bullets into 1ho pit. Two men were hit, one of them receiving a shot which shattered his face. Neither, howeyer, were fatally injured, lie claimed that they were trying to sell his soul on the board of trade. As General Martinez Campos, the famous old military commander who made the military pronunclamento which gave tho throne to Alphonso II, was reviewing troops at Barcelona, a couple of bombs were thrown and exploded under tho horse he rode. The general, however, was only slightly injured, while another man was killed. The troops would have killed the bomb thrower, but better judgment prevailed and he was imprisoned. Six men were blown up with dynamite at San Fransisco, and five of them are dead, while the sixth, if he recovers, will bo a wreck for life. The crime is said to have boon a deliberate and diabolical crime, meant tc have been more serious than it proved to be. It is charged directly to the Coast Seamen's Union. Fire which started in the Townsend & Wyatt dry goods house at St. Joseph destroyed tho Eegnier & Shoupe building, the Commercial Bank, Rawson, Garrott & Brewster, shoosj Barnaby & Co., drugs; Allen & Co., wholesale groceries and the Daily News building 1 , entailing a loss which was at first estimated to be Over §1,000,000, but which is now thought to be but little over §500,000. A train on the Kansas City, St. Joseph and Council Bluffs railway was to be held up by five bandits and the officials of the road were warned. A dummy train was made up and sixteen policemen well-armed placed on board. About two miles north of St. Joe the train was stopped by signal. The robbers at once surrounded the engineer and fireman, and, placing a guard over them, proceeded to the express car. In response to a co.nmand the door was opened. The robbers stepped in to be confronted by a number of policemen, who commanded them to surrender. A fight ensued in which twenty-five shots were fired and two of tho bandits were lulled. All of the others were captured and taken to St. Joe. None of the policemen were injured. Mitchell has signed an agreement to fight Corbett at tho Coney Island Athletic Club. Two new cases of small pox were reported to the New York health board. There wore also two deaths from th« disease at North Brothers Island. On the 23d snow fell over a large section of England to tho depth of four inches. Tho English house of lords and house of commons has adjourned until November.

'23.—Stewart introduced a resolution, upon' which bo will speak on Monday, arraigning the president for violation of the spirit of the constitution in endeavoring to destroy the independence of the law-making branch of the government by seeking to coerce congress into the passage of the repeal bill. After discussion of the cloture amendment senate adjourned. HOUSE. Printing bill was taken up but little done. ; ,' : SENATE. •Washington, Sept. 25.— Stewart's resolution nrraip;niug the president wns talren up and Stewart addressed the senate. He quoted from Cleveland's speech at tho cen- tennihl celebration of the corner stons of tho capital, words which had been applauded as a rebuke to the senate. Ho charged that the president, in disregard of his oath of otllce, hnd allowed the secretary of tho treasury to violate tho silver purchase act, by purchasing a smaller amount than is required by law. Stewart said the president had no exalted opinion of the senate or house. Ho seemed to repard it as on appendage to tho executive. In one of his letters the president spoke of expecting soon to have li "session of congress on his hands." That spoke volumes touching tho president's opinion of the co-ordiuatg branch oE tho government. Btownrt rend tha published dispatch from the president totiio chairman of the ways nnd menus committee, congratulating him on tho passage through tho house of tho ropenl bill. In tho, hundred odd years of American independence there wns no precedent for such rictio.ii. It looked like the president regarded congress ns his servant, and was thanking it ns a good nnd faithful servant for doing his bidding. Adjourned. HOUSE. Printing bill wns under discussion nil day. SENATE. Washington, Sop 1 :. BO.—Dubois of Idaho offered a resolution setting forth that ns several status nro without full representation, notion on legislation relating to feil- orul election laws, tnrlfF nnd liunncinl matters affecting their interests bo postponed untilJanunry 15th iioxt. Laid on tho table, 17 to 1!J. Stewart continued his nr- rnigumont of tho president. Ho was interrupted by Palmer, who asked him to make formal charges, which Stewart declined to do. Voorhecs said ho wished to account simply for tho total silence on tho democratic Hide of the chamber by stating that it had not been thought necessary to say a single word in clet'ousp ot Grover Cleveland. Ho had reason to believe his defense hnd been fully made by tho American pooplo themselves. Whatever tho senator from Nevada (Stewart) may have found of fault in his career, tho American people have not seen it that way. His record will stand with the foremost in spito of all assaults that may ba made. I1OUS13. Debate on bill to repeal federal election laws begnn, Tucker opening for tho democrats. He charged the republican party with being a sectional party and said tho law wus a sectional measure. Brosius defended tho party nnd tho law, saying the law was necessary tor the protection of tho olectivo franchise. Adjourned. SENATE. Washington, Sept. 27.—Dubois spoko in fiivor o£ his resolution for postponement, which was yesterdny Inid on the table. It being charged that the resolution was one of u series to be iutioducei to consume time, a heated controversy ensued which lusted for some time. Repenl bill was discussed umil adjournment. HOUSE. Bland presented a substitute for Loud's resolution calling for information as to how much sliver was purchased in July an-1 August, nnd nsking the secretary of the treasury why the full nmouut required under ths'nct of 1800 was not purchased in those mouths. Passed, 188 1o 1. Tho election repeal bill came up and was debated by Lawuou of Georgia nnd Daniels of Kow York. SENATE, U'ashington, Sept. 2S.—Repeal bill was ;ukeu up and Hon.r and Pelfor addressed Hio senate. Little of importance was accomplished.

Debate on bill to ro- iBiil federal election laws wns resumed and lilnck of Illinois addressed tho house. He snid the laws were passed in 1805 and were designed to operate under circumstances Which no longer exist. Johnson replied, arraigning tho democratic party in n most jittor manner, saying tho bill to ropea :s n ^reposition to blot out nil these laws to protect the purity of tho ballot, and a cold blooded proposition to ropenl all laws naking violations of election laws crimes. Urockonridgo followed from a constitutional phase. SENATE. Washington, Sept. 2!l.—Repeal bill wns taken up nnd Harris of Tennessee spoko against it. Morgan of Alabama nlso opposed it and hnd not concluded when adjournment was taken. HOUSE. Tucker bill was taken up and Lacey of Iowa spoko iu apposition. Ho said tho hill was inopportune. It hud simply been brought forward nt a time when tho democratic party wns in danger of being completely ruined, as a measure intended to rally all tho forces and hoal the breach. He laid groat stress on tho constitutionality of the Inws and spoke of the nllegecl election outrages in tho south. Other speakers diseussoU tho measure until adjournment. Tiiiiiinuiiy lieutn Lamplighter. NKW YOHK, Sept. ;JO.—Tammany won Ins match with Lamplighter at Guttenberg yesterday in such impressively easy style that it seems wonderful there should have ever been any ques. tion of his superiority to the brown son of Spendthrift. It was a great day for the match and there was 'a great crowd to see it, but it was far from being a great race. At the finish of the mile and a quarter it looked a if Tammany could have given his antagonist at least ten pounds and a beating. He finished nearly four lengths in front of Lamplighter ausj was fairly buck-jumping and fighting for his head, while the other was dead fagged out, having had whip and spur for nearly a quarter o£ a mile. Think Ho Is ii Now York Anarchist. SA.V FiiANG'iHfo, Cul..Scpt. 2i).—Alex Sorensen, tho sailor who is supposec to have, exploded the dynamite bomb lust Suturdiiy night with such deadly effect, came here from New i'ork lasi April on the ship Susquelumna. It thought ho is a Now York anarchist who was forced to leave that eity. Tho police have no clew as to his where abouts. "It is a pity that yon. aro not more sociable," remarked tho cyclone to the earthquake. "Instead of taking peo pie out and blowing them oil', as 1 do, you give every one tho slr.iko." Te:u'hor—This sentence speaks of a man who is an alarmist. Do yon know what that means? Bright Boy—Yes'm it's a olu gentleman wot tries to snare boys who like to go fishin' on Sunday. Alain ma—Little Uobbio Jones always asks to bo excused when he leaves tho table, and you never do Why is it?" "Well, 1 guoss it's 'cause he's ashamed of ontin' s;> much, 1 don't Uuow.". intrVrttnce* * Bill. , J'.Sept. 30.—Repre- entntive Bryan of Nebraska has pre- ented to the houSe" a bill to appro- >riate 841,000 to reimburse the state if Nebraska for expenses incurred by hat state in repelling a threatened hvasion and raid by the Sioux in i890/ nd 1891. _|_ Chicago Hoard of Trade. CHICAGO, Sept. !is.—There woo activity in wheat by spurts during the session, but it wns not accompanied by any good support. 'he Price Current said fall wheat seeding conditions very much improved by recent rains. Northwestern markets had enormous nnd unexpected receipts ot 95'J cars or more, compared with 6:'5 cars a year ago, when prices were much higher. Primary points had over 1,000,UOO bu this norning. for the first this season. New York cleared but 07.000 bu wheat. All Atlantic ports wheat aiid flour and 25,000 out of New Orleans mado the small total o£ !55,009 bu. A private cable told of oxcel- ent winter grain prospects in Russia. The only bull item was 100 cars of wheat here, against 487 cars a year ago. This was more than offset by the fact that shipments are so stagnant that wheat is accumulating ! reely every clay. The market started ^o off I'or December at U9%c, sold 09c and got a rally to OOj^e. then back to COc at two different times before midday. The May sold 7()>i| and 7G|§'e. AVith all the heaviness tho (Incline since Monday has been but l^c. Uocumber rallied S) lo OOJiftfttJO^c, and ilosei Gy%c. May closed at high point, (i%c. Wheat charters also helped at 235,- OUO'bu. The corn trade had much to contend with and prices went lower. Tho May prlee had a range of Ic up to the last hour and most of this was in a decline from last night. I'he heavy market broke past the put price at once atter tho opening, and there was much hedging against privileges. New TSnglnnd appears to have been pretty well Jlled with corn. The Wednesday movement here showed an accumulation of JOO,OUO bushels. The receipt i wore heavy at 015 cars, but this was much under the estimate. Later tho Friday estimate was again very heavy at G75 cars. Withdrawals wore moderate at 285,000. Wheat was so weak as to give no help to the corn trade. The October sold 9£c,lower at 30%c, Be:ember sold %c lower at'40c, May sold 4%c to 44)^((i44.%c to 43)£(<J43.%c and got a rally to 43%c. Corn firmed with wheat at the close. Oc;ober closed }£c of! at 3!>%e seller; December, 40^@40^c; May rullied to 41c. There was little activity iu the provision trade. It is a game of the packers to get as much profit between hogs and products as possible. But products opened firm and some «;ases higher. This was because cf ighor hog recolpls over the west. After trices got a bulge thorj wns selling in sympathy with the breaking grain markets. January pork alone had any business.

The Art Interchange for October is an usuiil number, both in its matter and illustrations, as well as the high grade of its supplements, three of which are in color and two in black and white. The Dutch pictures at Chicago are ably reviewed and handsomely illustrated. The portraits at the Fair and the color decorations also receive attention in separate papers. Electricity at the World's Fair opens the October number of the Popular Science Monthly. The subject is a fas cinating one, and Mr. Charles AI, Lungren, who writes tho article, has given faithful descriptions of the enormous generators, tho marvelous electric fountains, the electric railway and launches in operation, nnd other wonders of the electrical exhibit. The appearance of the full piano score of a set. O f original, by Edward Strauss,, the famous waltz composer, and conductor of the Court Balls of Vienna, is one of tho many striking features of the October Ladies' Home Journal. This set of is called "Tho Dancing Waves Waltzes," and will bo found quite as melodious as any of its predecessors. Since Mr, Timothy Cole finished his work of engraving the old masters o Italian art for the Century, ho has been hard at work in Holland transferring, to the woodblock the most iniportan paintings of the old dutch masters.

The treet illuminations consist of 7.S.OUO electric and gas lights, which are used .0 the best advantage, and the downtown streets present an appearance of dazzling magnificence. There ara twelve electric arches, or panoramas, inch illuminated by upward of 1,000 ncandescent lights", and these aro a never-failing source of attraction to he tens of thousands of people who jhrong the streets on illumination nights. One of the most remarkable .riumphs of art over electricity is the Slectric Bulletin, which proclaims words of welcome in letters of fire to u he visitors, special honor being paid ,o the visitors of the day. Special illuminations are announced 'or Sept. 28 and 30, and for Oct. 3, 5, .2 and 10.

Sousa's giMnd concert band, conceded by all to be the best band in America, if not in the world, gives four concerts daily, almost every number at each concert being enthusiastically encored. Air, Sousa, described by the musical press as the greatest living bandmaster, is assisted by soloists of world wide reputation including Madame Scalchi, the peerless contralto; Sig. Campanani, the great baritone; Air. Barosch, one of the best tenors living; Aliss Inez Carusi, the celebrated harpist, and others of almost equal celebrity. The seats in the enormous music hall are all unreserved and the nominal admission fee of 25 cents entitles the visitor to all the attractions, including the concerts It is this exceptional liberality on the part of the management that is insuring the Exposition a succo'ss of which every western and southern man is proud.

SAYS THK KOAU -WAS TOO STINGY. Trainmen Talk of tho Cause oE the iJrnnd Trunk AVrcck. BATTLE CHEEK, Mich., Sept. HO.—The Grand '1 runk wreck at Bellevue has been cleared away. The wounded are recovering and the dead have been removed to Detroit The trainmen here are doing some loud talking about the cause of the wreck, although they refuse to be mentioned by name. The substance of the talk is that the Grand Trunk has been too stingy in the matter of expenses, although" the World's Fair passenger traffic is 100,UOO passengers a month. The trainmen say that the semaphore system would have saved the wreck, as it would have notified the colliding train half a mile away. The verdict of the coroner's jury is awaited with interest. TKAIN WRECKED BY KOliBEKS. Kaunas Ofllcials Who Went Into Cher okeo I..OSO Their Places. TOPEKA, Kan., Sept. 20.—Attorney- General Littlerendered an opinion yesterday declaring that all persons who made the race for claims in the Cherokee strip forfeited their residence in this state, and are consequently not entitled to vote at the coming election. It is estimated that fully 20,000 voters wont into the Cherokee country from Kansas, among them being a large number of city and county officers, who by the ruling of the attorney-general forfeit their offices. Most of those who made the race will be in Kansas on election day, having either returned to remain or to conclude arrangements for taking up their residence in Oklahoma. It is known that three republican members of the legislature have taken claims in the strip, enough to destroy the republican majority in the house. Should the republican movement to have Senator .Martin thrown out be successful the populists would be able to elect a United States senator without the aid of democratic votes.

VIENNA. Sept. 30.—In spite of the- efforts made by irresponsible netirs- agencies to belittle the story of the arrest in this city on Sept 23, of a. number, of anarchists in |i house oil Siebenbrunner strasse, cabled to the- Associated Press, the fact remains that the police of ih's city, did-upon that' occasion discover the greatest conspiracy since the time of Guy tfawkes in Engjand. The police 'found not only cases of revolvers, bombs ready for loading, explosives with which to load the bombs and coats with leather linings to which hooks with suspending bombs were attached, discovered in the walls and of the house documents of a portant nature. The full particulars of the plot were not made public at the time, but it is. believed that a great and widespread conspiracy against the city of Vienna was nipp'e'il in the bud. This is ad.- mitted by the Austrian police, ai^ they say that tho investigation made since Sept. 23 shows that the anarchists intended to smuggle a quanlity of dynamite into the underground portion of tho reichsrath, and, when that body met on Oct. 10, to blow the seichs- rath sky high and strike terror into the hearts of the enemies pi the independent group o£ socialists to which the anarchists arrested belonged. The reichsrath of the western part of the monarchy, consists ot\ the upper and lower house; the upper/ house (herrenhaus) is formed of the^ princes of the imperial fam'ly who. are of age, and secondly, of a number of nobles (sixty-eight in the present reichsrath) in whose families by nomination of the emperor the dignity is- hereditary; third, of the archbishops, say ten in all, and fourth, of any other life members nominated by the emperor on account of being distinguished in art, science or in the- church or state, about 113'in all. The lower house consists of about 3R8 members, selected partly by the votes of the citizens. Some fiOO persons would have been hurled into- eternity on Oct. 10 hnd the police not raided the house on Siebenbrunner strasse, The reictsrath was not the only building the anarchists intended to- blow up on Oct. 10; they had their- plans also fully prepared to blow up the town hall, In this building over 1,000 persons would have been destroyed on Oct. ]0 had the police noA unearthed the anarchist' plot. ' Even this was not tho full extent of the terrible conspiracy discovered. A number of other important buildings, on the Ring Strasse, one of the finest streets in Europe, were marked for destruction, with everybody in them, on the day appointed for the anarchist outbreak; the university, another building, was also to be undermined with dynamite, as was the famous Historical museum of Vienna, and other fine buildings of a similar nature. The Ilofburg theater, opposite the Rathhaus, was also marked out for destruction. Now comes, so far as the United States is concerned, the strangest part of the whole conspiracy. As already announced, the bombs of the Vienna anarchists were manufactured according to the formula prepared by Herr Alor.t ot New York. This is not all^ the police of this city insist and elaini to be able to prove their assertion that the anarchists engaged in the terrible conspiracy against the city of Vienna were connected with the anarchists of Chicago. This is not a police theory, the authorities say, but the connection of the anarchists of Chicago with those of this city they insist has been fully established beyond any doubt. Correspondence between the anarchists here and those at Chicago is said to be in the hands of the Austrian police, who, it would seem, must have communicated with tho police of Chicago on the subject. NKW YORK, Sept. 2!'.—Johann Alost, leader of the anarchists in Now York, was visibly excited as well as indignant when the report was published yesterday that the Vienna dynamiters were sustpined by the anarchists here in their plan to blow up the Austrian government building. "No one but an idiot could credit such nonsense," said Alost. "Itwould be the height of absurdity for the outraged workingmen of Vienna to conceive such a plot and then to risk discovery which would be involved by trusting its details to the mails. Nothing is sacred from the* eyes of the government spies, and the anarchists are well aware of the fac' lleriee the story of a great conspirj is ridiculous. The American anarchy, ists, while they sympathise deeply with their down-trodden brothers in foreign countries, have so many of their own battles to light that air our strenghth is needed here. We cannot hope to do much for others till the chain which binds us is severed." I To I'roaoeuto Smugglers. WASHINGTON, Sept. :iO.— A local paper says that ex-Representative George 11.
