CfcDAfc RAPIDS, Feb. 19.—Judge Gib- it-son, of the superior court, handed down an .important decision, after having the inatter under advisement for ninety days. In 1880 N. B. Brown deeded to the Chicago & Northwestern railway a tract of land for a money and certain other considerations, one of which was that they should forever maintain a passenger and freight depot Upon the site. Two yeard ago this company, together with the Burlington, Cedar Rapids & Northern railway, left this depot and occupied a new union depot two blocks south. Harry tfi Brown, one of the heirs of N. B. .Brown, brought suit against the railway companies for possession of the land on the ground that they had forfeited title to it because of abandoning it as a passenger station site. Judge Giberson finds for the defendants. The property in question is very Valuable. FARMER'S SUSPICIOUS DEATH. fell Dead an Ho Staggered Cut and Bleecl- Ing Into Ills Homo. i ELVIIU, Feb. 20.—The wife of Henry Grohman, a farmer living a mile cast of Elvira, aroused her neighbors, calling for help. Several men responded and found Grohman lying dead in the farmhouse covered with blood, two grown sons saying the first they knew of his injuries was when he opened tho floor and' said to one son: "Henry, borne and help your father," falling knd immediately expiring. Tho theory advanced was that he had been kicked by a horse at the barn and had beached the house as death came to tim. During the excitement no other idea was advanced. The body was prepared for burial. Later it was found that no horse on the farm was thod, and other suspicious circumstances led to tho belief in foul play. (The man's head was badly cut, as is one leg and his left hand. ELECTION LAWS ARE VALID, Rollnfc ot VTndfto Untfihlnnon Ponhty ContMt. Sioux City dispatch: Judge Hutch- insoh, of the Fourth judicial district, has made a ruling that the election laws of the state of Iowa are constitutional, and that ballots marked otherwise than provided in the statutes are not to be counted. Thus the court overrules the decision of the court of contest in the case of J. W. Gambs vs. W. C. Davenport, an action over the office of sheriff of Woodbury county. It was decided by the court of contest that season 1120 of the code of Iowa, referring to the count of ballots, was directly opposed to the constitutional rights of the voters. Men had marked crosses in the circle at the head of one ticket and had gone over to the other ticket and marked a cross in a square opposite to the name of the candidate for sheriff. Under the law that vote as to sheriff should not have been counted for either candidate. But the court of contest did count it, and has been reversed by tho district court. The question will probably be taken up to the supreme court before it is finally settled. NAME INSPECTORS. ot tJovcrnor Shaw Appoints Inspectors Petroleum Products.

Town City Olovo Factory Destroyed. IOWA Cur, Fob. 21.—The loss on the glove factory, which burned here, is $15,000 on stock and machinery and $10,000 on the building, with no insurance. One hundred gallons of kerosene stored in a tank in the building made the fire a specially hot one. The fire department responded promptly, but it was necessary to lay about 2,000 feet of hose, and before water in sufficient force could be used the building was doomed. The fire throws out of employment about 300 girls, but the owners, Rates Sons, have been using part of the old glucose works for a tannery and they propose as quickly as possible to arrange for tho manufacture of gloves in this building. The origin of tho fire is unknown, but it is attributed to spontaneous combiistion in a heap of steam coal. Theo, Unrtoch Found Guilty. CMNTON, Feb. 18.—The jury in tho case of Theo.

ALL OVER THE WORLD MAINE BLOWN UP. Cnlted State* Battleship Destroyed In Ilnrana Harbor. HAVANA, Feb. 10.—At 10 o'clock last pight, while the United States battleship Maine was lying in the harbor, a terrible explosion took place on board. Most of the crew were in bed at the time and there is absolutely no knowledge of what caused the explosion. The explosion shook the entire city and aid was soon at hand. The vessel took fire at once and burned to the water's edge. It is estimated that one hundred of the crew were killed, but as yet this is merely conjecture. Many are wounded. The sailors who escaped saved nothing but their nightclothes. The rescued sailors were taken on board of a Spanish man-of-war and a Ward line steamer. Capt. Gen. Blanco at once tendered his services to Captain Sigsbec, of the Maine, and expressed the deepest sympathy. Captain Sigbee wired Secretary Long, of tho navy department, to send light house tenders from Key West for the ANOTHER STEAMSHIP HORROR. crew. He also urged that public opinion be suspended until further particulars wore at hand. [The Maine was built in New York in 1800 at a cost of $p2,r ( 88.000. She had a steel hull and a compliment of 874 men and was regarded as one of the best ships in the new navy.] WASIIINOTON, Feb. 17.—The loss of the cruiser Maine in Havana harbor is still shrouded in mystery, but the navy department at Washington is inclined to the belief that it was due to an accident, probably to a fire in the coal bunkers, which communicated sufficient heat to the magazines to explode the ammunition. The administration will adopt this view and exonerate the Spanish from all blame until proof to the contrary is produced. The situation of the Maine in Spanish waters and all tho circumstances give rise to suspicion in naval and diplomatic circles that the loss of the ship may not bo duo to accident. An examination of the hull by divers will bo ordered in order to determine whether the explosion was within or .without the ship. Tho total loss of life, including missing, was placed by Commander Sigsbee in a report to the n_aval 200. Only two officers lost their lives. One of them was Assistant Engineer D. R. Merritt, of Red Oak, la. Among the ship's crew were a number of lowans who were lost. The Maine lies in water with only her funnels and part of her upper works in sight.

The trouble is one of long- standing-, and both have 'been arrested several times at the instance of the other. It is reported that Frank A. Novak, the ex-banker and ex-merchant of Wnlford, who is serving a life sentence for the murder of Edward Murray at Waiford last February, and who ' was captured at Dawson City last July, is but a ghost of his former self. Ho is completely broken down in spirit and is failing fast. He worries continually and broods over his fate. He is able, to cat but little, ana that little he win- not retain on his stomach. As a result he has never been assigned to any duty. He has fallen away rapidly and it is feared he will not live long. Judge Thornell, of the district court of Pottawattamio county, decided the state law taxing collateral inheritances to be unconstitutional. The law was passed at the last session of the legislature, becoming effective October 1 lust. It provides for a 5 per cent tax 011 all bequests other than to direct heirs. The case decided was that of John J. Ferry against John Herriott, state treasurer, and others. It was brought to resist a tax of 93,100 on bequests left by Frank C. Stewart, of Carson, and was the first case brought under the new law. The law was attacked on the ground that it was in contravention of the fourteenth amendment to the constitution of the United States in that it took property without duo process of law. Judge Thornell rendered a verbal opinion declaring the law unconstitutional on tho ground taken by tho plaintiff, as well as because the law contained no the provision for annuities. An appeal but will be taken by the state. Maine. At Linden recently bold robbers made an attempt to loot the safe in the Farmers' and Merchants' Bank, but their efforts proved unsuccessful.

LONDON, Feb. 17.—The headlines of all the London newspapers hint that the disaster points to treachery, either Cuban or Spanish, and the papers allude to the excitement and resentment at the Maine's dispatch to Havana. WASHINGTON, Feb. 18.—There seems to be a feeling among the many correspondents at Havana that the Maine disaster was not due to accident. Although as yet there is no evidence to prove their belief, certain things help to justify the claims that the disaster was due to Spanish treachery. The court of inquiry alone can dis- President of tho World's Passes Away. NKW YOKK, Feb. IS.—Miss Frances E. Willard, president of the Women's Christian Temperance Union, died shortly after midnight at the Hotel Imperial. Miss Willard had suffered some years with profound anemia and on several occasions had been given up to die. Last summer she seemed to take on a new lease of life and gained in weight and strength, so that she wont through her convention work at Toronto and Buffalo, which was most arduous, and came out much better than was expected, but on her arrival, five weeks ago, she wu.s much prostrated and readily took the grippe, which was the cause of her last illness. Says It was a Sub-marina IMIiie. NEW YORK, Feb. 21.—A cable from Havana soys; "The consensus of opinion of those who have studied tho wreck closest is that the explosion was caused by a sub-marine mine. Tho forward magazine, it is now generally supposed, is intact, also tho forward six-inch magazine. This leaves only a few saluting charges and a few small caliber shells in the pilot house which could possibly have exploded aboard the ship. At the same time the fearful damage is too big for any but an extremely large torpedo. The Spanish dailies are loudly clamoring, 'Accident accident,' when even now the fact is known that the whole middle deck, which was blown straight up, never had an ounce of ship's powder under it, and that was where the first flame wus seen."

G. Dun & Co.'s Weekly Review of Trade says: "The dreadful disaster to the Maine, much as it has affected all hearts, has not much affected business. Only in the stock market was an effect felt. jAn advance of 10 per c^nt in wages by pome Gogebic mines is expected to be general throughout the lake region, excepting the Mesaba district, and prices of ore from the other ranges this year have been advanced 15 per fent, with an allotment of 6,000,000 tons outside Carnegie mines, which be- jtokens an output much the largest ever known.
