SCALDEb TO DEATH. JSrt Frodre&lti the Victim of a Terrific Boiler Explosion. DBS MOINEB, August 8.—A terrific boiler explosion occurred at tho Christy Coal Company's mine, on the Rock Island tracks, four miles east of town. AS a result, Ed Fredreglll, a fireman employed in the boiler house, is dead, two other men, John Moses aud Curlin .Opelsby, slightly injured, and the top works deinoHshed'and scattered over a portion of Four Mile township. That more men were not killed is a miracle, and the re»itals of narrow escapes given by them were calculated to make the hearers' hair stand. Three other men escaped instant death by a miracle, Frodregill was so terribly scalded " he died within a'few hours. is expected that the peace .ngreemt will tt<$ lotte&lly completed ia a^ayV. tw& ftftd" that hostilities will-fee~' USB* Jteiided" at ttflee. 1 This 'will hot bti fel* Ibwed at at* early date by thedlsbaisd'' ibg of the army, but oh the contrary; the peribd before the sighing" of thd fdfinal peace treaty aad its ratification hy the senate Will be devoted to per* feeling a complete and effect!v^drgftfi" ization of the atltty'aHd a cleaning, re» pairing attd placing 1 in perfect condition all the vessels of the navy, tfhfe sick and wounded ftf the ai-m'y whd are incapacitated for further service probably will be given their discharges at an early date. The men who are In good condition or are suffering only temporary disability Will be held together and put in the best possible shape for service. A part of the forces sent to Porto itico will be kept there, and others sent to Havana and other Cuban cities for garrison duty. It is regarded as quite probable that some of the best of Shafter's army, after thorough recuperation in the United States, may have to be sent again to Cuba, The so-called immunes who will take the place of Gen. Shafter's army at Santiago are not, in many cases, it is believed, really immune, and it, therefore, is probable that some of them will fall victims to the climate.

MADJSIU, August 8.—Senor Sagaita has just concluded a conference with tho queen regent. Her. majesty approves the general lines of the reply of Spain lo America's peace ferms. The government believes that the United States will accept Spain's answer, which will certainly reach Washington by Tuesday. As a consequence of tho United Sto,tes accepting the reply, hostilities will immediately afterward be ; suspended. WASHINGTON, August 8.—Although as yet without official confirmation of the reports from Madrid that the Spanish government has decided to accept the terms laid down by the United States as essential to the negotiation of a treaty of peace, the officials here are proceeding under the conviction that the end has come, and are giving attention to the steps to be taken next. Infanta JUTurla Teresa Flouted. NoiiFoi,K, Va., August 0.—The Mer- ritfc Wrecking company has received advices from Santiago that make it certain that the Infanta Maria Teresa is now floated and is found to be in fairly good condition as to her machinery and boilers. She will shortly start for Norfolk under her own steam. Another expedition on the wrecking steamer Chapman will be sent south at once carrying four immense pontoons especially intended for raising the Cristobal Colon. Michigan Bank Robbery. Riciir,ANi), Mich., August 0.—One of the most daring and successful bank robberies ever perpetrated in Michigan was carried out by six robbers. They secured $5,000 in cash from the Union bank and $4,600 in notes. The safe was completely wrecked. The explosion aroused a numberiaf people who saw the robbers but dared not interfere with thorn. They escaped with a liorse and buggy. ', August 8.-"-*he troops of General Shaftef's command at Santiago, have begun to leave Cuba for the United States. A part of two regiments of cavalry are now en route from Santiago to Montaiik.Point, L. I., as indicated in the following dispatch received at tho war department: SANTIAGO, August 7.—Adjutant General, Washington.—Gate City, with 600 men, Third and Sixth cavalry, sailed for Mohtauk Point this morning, SHAD-TEH, Major General.

Toi'KKA, Kan., August 7.—Superintendent McNall and W. G. Goddard, returned from trips covering tho corn belt of central Kansas, bring reports of great damage to the crop by continued dry weather. In McPhersou, Salina, Clay. Republic, Smith, Rice and Ellsworth counties the corn is ruined, and in only a few localities do the farmers expect half a crop. In much of this territory the hot winds and drought have cooked the corn. Farmers are holding their old corn, expecting a'big rise in the market. Big \Vheat Yield In Kansas. TonsicA, Kan., August 7.—Secretary Coburn, of the state board of agriculture, has issued a bulletin showing crop conditions. He places the yield of winter wheat at 60,870,055 bushels, which, with one exception (1893), is the largest ever grown in the state.

KEY WEST, August 8.—The tug Hudson, which has been with the Uncas on the nortli coast blockade, sank a little Spanish sloop a few nights ago and captured another off Cardenas. The captured sloop was the Christina and was loaded with fish.

They will be returned to Spain with their husbands and fathers. , ^ No Change in Watson's Orders, WASIJWQTO.V, August 5.—Navy department officials-insist that BO change lias been made iu the orders to the Watson sq uadron.

It was decided that there Were enough transports lying off the coast there for the purpose. The despatch of troops home will accordingly begin without delay. Steps have also been taken to cut down the war expenses. The dis- bandmcnt of tho auxiliary navy has already begun, and other actions in the interest of economy will follow. ' TO GARRISON CUBA. . Military Regime In Island May Follow Pence. Washington dispatch: The administration is formulating general plans for a temporary American military regime in Cuba following the conclusion of peace between the United States 'and Spain. The government is aware of tho critical period in the history of the island which is certain to attend ( the withdrawal of the Spanish sovereignty from the territory and the installation of the Cuban republican administration. The presence of an American garrison in all of the principal cities and towns of the island is .confidently expected and these garrisons will probably need to be main- .tained for several months. The war department is therefore contemplating the detail of an army of 50,000 men for Cuban occupation after peace shall have been declared. This occupation, from the present outlook, will begin in the early fall. The force of 50,000 will be selected from the volunteer army and pains will be taken to give thoseregtmonts which have.not yet come to the front a chance to see service in Cuba. The'military government will temporarily prevail throughout the island and in all probability General Fitshngh Lee will be placed in command of the garrisoning army and made military governor of the territory. ENGLAND AND RUSSIA.

It is annpunced that all cavalry, mounted a/nd dismounted, with Shatter's army, including Col. Roosevelt's Rough Riders, have been ordered to proceed to Mjntauk Point, Long Island, for encampment. Shafter has been ordered to use all transnort facilities at his command and to send troops north as rapidly us possible. At Washington recently ex-Senator Warner Miller, of New York, the pros, ident of the Nicaraguan canal commission, and Senutor Morgan, of Alabama, the leading advocate'of thftt project in congress, had'a'conference on the Nic- arag-uan canal question with president MeKinJey, The conference was short. The president, it is said, expressed his acquiescence in the belief tjiattbe government possession of it is now necessary, and that the war and its results make the canal indispensable to the United Stateis, The president, his callers say. intends to molce strong reconi- ' m* t? congress for legislation immediate provision for the ...» -- - ; on of th,e canal and for making 1 it the direct property »i the, govern' pays; Extreme Diplomatic Tension Said to Exist Between Them. LONDON, / ,t 8.—That extreme diplomatic tension exists between St Petersburg and London is generally admitted though the ofiicials deprecate the alarmist reports. It is hoped that the firm stand adopted by Salisbrry the last few days, which seems to be already creating some misgiving at St. Petersburg, will have the desired effect of arresting the Russian aggressiveness. It is felt both here and on the continent that the outcome of the dispute in regard to a new change of railroad extension is the crucial point of success or failure of Great Britain's policy of "open door." As an evidence of the fact that Great Britain appreciates the gravity of the situation the Associated Press learns the admiralty is preparing for all emergencies and it will soon be ready to mobilise. 0,000 Immunes Enronte to Santiago, SAVANNAH, August 6.—Five thgus- and troops are on the way to Savannah to embark on the transports for Santiago tp relieve the troops there.

LONDON, August 5.— The Madrid correspondent of the Times says: "Though peace is regarded as assured, it may not be attained so quickly as is generally expected. Sagasta objects to being hustled, and insists on every^ thing being-done in a quiet, Orderly and dignified manner. He considers'it necessary to have full and satisfactory" explanation as to all doubtful points, in order to enable him best to , protect the national interests against the aggressive tendencies of the Washington cabinet. The Spanish people, though sincerely desirous of peace, are disposed to admire this hesitancy and tenacious holding out to the last, although aware that it implies greatei sacrifices. As an illustration of this feeling/while General Toral is blamed for capitulating at Santiago, Captain General Augusti, continuing a hopeless resistance at Manila, bids fair to be a popular hero. It would be premature i to suppose that the political consultations now proceeding foreshadow the resignation of the liberal cabinet, when peace is concluded. • The conservatives have so constantly and loy-, ally supported Sagasta throughout the war that no factious opposition need" be feared from them."

MADRID, August4.—Premier Sagasta has summoned Scnor Silvela, the conservative leader, and other absent politicians to Madrid, in order to consult with them regarding the peace terms. WASHINGTON, August 4.—After a conference on the peace question, lasting just an hour yesterday afternoon, between the president and M. Cambon, the French" ambassador, the latter acting as the representative of Spain, Secretary Day emerged from the white house and announced that the conference was not conclusive; wherefore, the parties to it had agreed to sav nothing publicly a& to what had occurred. The secretary did not appear to be discouraged as he made this statement, though he admitted that no time had been set for another conference. From this it is gathered that the long expected answer of the Spanish government to the president's note, upon being received, had turned out to be just (is it was expected— either a counter-proposition or a request for a fuller statement in upon &ome of the heads of the presi' dent's.note.
