THE UPPfiK THE MS IN IOWA LUCKY IN GOLD FIELD. Clinton Stnn Make* tfottnne Jn Colorado Mines. CUNTOJT, April 30.—William McMillan, for several years freight agent for the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul railway company in Clinton, departed for Idaho Springs, Col., where he will look after his mining interests, having resigned his position here with the railway company. McMillan is one of the lucky persons who has made a strike in the Colorado gold fields. Several years ago he invested few hundred dollars in a gold mine in Idaho Springs, but never considered the investment a paying one. About n mouth ago he visited the mine and learned that his little investment had made him a rich man. as a gold ledge of great value had been struck. He was offered S50 for every SI invested, but declined to sell. He returned to Clinton and closed up his business affairs and has gone west to give his entire attention to the development of his mine. M'FARLAND LOSES CASE. •fadjjmcnt Rendered In Fnvor of State for SI,310. DES MOIXKS, April 29.—The jury in (he McFarland case required just a little over an hour to reach a verdict for the state. It grants damages in the sum of 51,219. This is the amount which was figured up by Attorney Miller, for the state, after the instructions of the court were known. It was all that could be secured under the court's instructions, and the iury gave every cent. The defense will undoubtedly appeal the case. The verdict included money proved to have been taken by McFarland from the census clerks, and S155 which he had the state pay to M. A. llaney during the period when Raney was working as manager of his gubernatorial campaign. The state contended that the payment of this money constituted a plain hold-up of the treasury for funds to pav a campaign manager, and the coincided with the view. MURDEft SUSPECTED. AN IOWA TORNADO. Storm Urine;* Death and Destruction 10 An Oiiawii Home. ONAWA, April 28.—A severe storm struck this place at about 10 p. m. The house of George Ferrin, about three miles from Ule, was totally destroyed. The ten-year-old boy was instantly killed. Mr. and Mrs. Feri-in and five daughters are not expected to live. Great damage was done to other property. Dozens of people scattered throughout the prosperous farming country of the Soldier river valley •were hurt more or less by the Hying debris. The terrible ravages of the tornado we're scarcely realized until daylight divulged the extent of the. wind's damage. It was a twister in every seuse of the word, though followed immediately by a fierce, strong gale which carried in its teeth tons of laige hail stones which alone did considerable damage^ STATE SUFFERS A FIRE LOSS. Institution for Feeble Minded Children la Damaged. GI.ENWOOD, April 29.—Fire again cisited the institution for feeble minded children, located here. The origin of the fire is not known. It caught on the third story and destroyed all tho third story and the roof, then the well disciplined lire department under the efficient direction of Superintendent Powell asserted itself and cheeked the progress of the flames. .Fortunately there was little wind, and everything was wet from the recent rain, or the conflagration would have been terrible. There were no casualties and the loss is comparatively slight. HUTCHINS HAS IOWA'S OFFER. Can He President of the State University lit W7,OO(I u Year. DES MOINES, April 30.—Harry B. flutchius, dean of the Michigan University law school, can have the presidency of the Iowa State University at 87,000 a year if he wants it. The regents have agreed upon him, and he visited Iowa City and met the regents at their meeting last week. They were well pleased with him. It all rests with him, and he will decide within the next month. He is said to be in the line of succession to the presidency of the Michigan University and hesitates to leave. The Iowa regents are much divided on second choice. lielievetl lo J»e J5nd Men. BUBWNOTON, April 34.—Four tough looking men are in jail here, having been captured after an exciting chase. It is charged that they slugged and robbed a man on a freight train near Latty and threw him out of the car door; that they robbed the postoflice at Latty and Sperry, and attempted to kill a brakeraan who refused to give them a vide. They were chased for miles by the farmers and finally caught by the"aid of the Burlington police and a locomotive, Will Recommend 11 Twine Factory.

WATERLOO, April 25.—The body of Mrs. Henry Lamper wns found in the Cedar river, almost in the heart of the city. The woman had disappeared about six weeks ago and no traces could be found of her, though a diligent search has been in progress. The body was found by a number of small boys who had been amusing themselves by throwing stones at an object which they supppsed at first to be a bundle of rags. It has been in plain sight of hundreds passing there daily. The police hare a theory that the woman met her death at the hands of some one having murderous intent, but there is no suspicion as yet as to who the guilty party is. An investigation has been ordered. WATKIII.OO, April 27.—Henry Lemper, to whom suspicion pointed as the imirderer of his wife, has been cleared by the coroner's jury. After an investigation which lasted two days the jury came to the conclusion that the woman met her death accidentally or at her own hands. The verdict clears Mr. Lemper, who is deeply aggrieved at, the accusations. The fact that the husband and wife were last, seen quarreling led to the suspicion that he was implicated in her disappearance. START HOME SOON. Forty-ninth Town to be mustered Out on May 13th. DES MOIXKP. April 27.—It is not believed the Forty-ninth Iowa regiment, now in camp at Camp Onward, Georgia, will come to Dos Moines. A letter received from a member of Company O states that his regiment will be mustered out on May 13. They will also bo paid off in the south. Thisis stated from the fact of letters which have been received from members of different companies throughout, the state. In nearly all these letters the boys have spoken of the possibility of the companies remaining together until they reach home, although there is nothing compelling them to do so. A number of towns about the state are now making preparations for the reception of their companies. Cedar Rapids expects four companies to visit that city before they leave for their homes.

Henderson, of Iowa, has anounecd his candidacy for the speakership. In doing so he said: "As the silence of Mr. Reed and the information from many quarters clearly indicate that he will not again be a candidate for the speakership, and as the Iowa delegation is united in favor of my candidacy, I have decided to enter the race." General Henderson is much gratified at the information which reached him that his Iowa colleagues will meet in Des Moines next week to perfect tho details of his campaign. Depot llurned at Cedar Falls. CICUAB FAI.I.P, April 2',).—The Chicago Grent 'Western depot at this place was lightning and totally destroyed. The building- had boon closed for the night, and DO one was near when it was struck. It was used both for passenger and freight purposes, and everything' in both departments was burned, including valuable books and records. A warehouse adjoining was damaged considerably, and a box car standing 1 near was scorched. The depot was valued at 82,000. It is impossible to determine the value of tiie books niul papers. Xo IiiKiirnix'o for I'omoroyi PoMUJtoy, April 26.—Property owners at Pomeroy complain that insurance companies will not take their risks since the recent tire in which it was reported that most of the town was destroyed. Charges of incendiarism were made, which the people deny. They also say there was not over $10,000 damage instead of $7;"),000, but they are left without insurance, nearly all the companies cancelling' their policies. I'oHtofHce Ilobhnd. SiiEi.iUiii., April 24.—The post office at Sheldahl was visited by burglars a night or two ago. They gained entrance by breaking the side window. They only succeeded in getting a box and a half of cigars, and less than a dollar's worth of stamps. The money drawer was broken open and thrown on the floor, but it was entirely empty. Child liuriied to Death. BKNTONSi'OKT, April 27. — Amelia Holmes, of Vernon, a 0-year-old child, was burned to death in a hay mow. She went to the barn to look for eggs. It was dark, and presumably she struck a match and ignited the hay. The barn was in ashes in fifteen minutes, and the child, unable to get oul of the flames, was burned to death.

MANILA, April 29.—The Filipinos will seek peace. Colonel Manuel Ar- gnelez and Lieut, .lose Bernal, chief of General Lima's staff, entered Gen. T.'acArthur's line bearing a flag of truce. They are en route for Manila by train to confer with General Otis regarding terms of surrender. • WASHINGTON, April 20.—Gen. Otia cables that the commanding general of the insurgents received from the insurgent government directions to suspend hostilities, pending ncg-otiii- tions for the termination of the war; that, an insurgent staff ofllcer is on the way to Manila for that purpose. The news from General Otis caused a feeling ot profound relief on all sides, for during the hist three days the oflieials have been much depressed by the reports from the front. The Associated I'ress dispatch dated at the close of the day stating that negotiations for peace had not been successful, but that another conference would occur to-day, did not have any substantial efVeet in repressing the expressions of satisfaction. Secretary Alger does not propose to interfere with General Otis and the. Filipino commission in making the terms with the Filipinos. Secretary Al<rcr said tho Philippine commission had full power to atrangi the terms of surrender. It is statoi on the h'ghest authority that uudei its instructions the Philippine com mission will deal most leniently will the insurgents, and when once con vinced of their intention to ceasi fighting the commission will not be technical nor captions as to the terms. It will be made plain to the revolting Filipinos that no grudge will be charged up against them; that they will not be punished in the Spanish fashion by the wholesale execution of the leading spirits among them, and finally that they will not lose their property. ARGUMENT IS FRUITLESS. Gen. OtlK Gives the Filipino Itepresciila- tlvcs lint. Ijlttln Kiic'niirifoiiient. MANILA, May i.—The conference' Saturday between Gen. Otis and the nsurgent representatives was fruit- ess. It, is understood the Filipino ommissioner.s were given the terms lion, which the Americans will con- ont to negotiate. The Filipinos ad- lit that they are. defeated. It is ex- eeteit that they will return with resh proposals from General Luna, o Filipino commissioners returned o the insurgent lines. The Filipinos .sked for a fortnight's armistice so hat the congress might be summoned n May 1, and endeavored to commit he Americans to greater concessions ml wanted their terms guaranteed >y a treaty. They were told that the •ecognition oi : the Filipino g-overn- nent was impossible, and were given o understand that a written gxiaran- ce of amnesty for all the insurgents vas the utmost that could be given. i.'ho people of Manila are divided be- .wcen two opinions, the majority bo- ieving the Filipinos desire pence, while ^lie others think they are sparring for ime in which to rehabilitate tho de- no nil i/.cd army. The latter opinion gained color from the fact that rein- 'orccments have boon sent to the south, opposite the American linos. EXCITEMENT IN CAPE COLONY. town, Missouri.

More lhan twenty-five were killed, scores ire feared to be dying from injuries tnd at least 600 more are more or less injured. A path a quarter-mile wide and as Clean as the prairie was swept through the eastern portion of the city, and 100 buildings, homes and mercantile douses, were leveled to the ground in scattered ruins. In the heavy rain that followed the people who had escaped turned out to rescue the injured. For two hours not much was ac- :ompllshed, as all was confusion, but by 8 o'clock twenty-five dead bodies had been Jaken from the ruins. It Is ;onfidently expected that the list of lead will reached between fifty and lixty, if not exceed that. Almost 1,000 '-eonle were more or less injured, ninny Remarkable Eiwinpca. The list of dead is increasing as the work of clearing away the ruins progresses. Numerous cases of almost miraculous escapes occurred. One 'woman was carried several hundred yards and received only slight bruises. The cyclone came without warning. It struck the southeast portion of the city about 6 o'clock, and inside of three minutes the work of destruction was accomplished. • The cyclone came from the southwest and was a characteristic funnel-shaped twlrler. The funnel dipped down when it reached the edge of the town, and as it progressed its path widened until it lighted on the worst-wrecked portion of the city. It pread out over four or five blocks. Everything went down before tho torm, and houses oil Its outer edge were unroofed. Keaculnff the Victims. Hundreds of men ran toward the devastated district before the great wind cloud had passed from the city limits. The work of rescuing the dead and vounded was in progress within five minutes. Fire started in the ruins ol several buildings. Those who had escaped the storm were running about liteously calling for missing relatives. Buildings were scattered to the four winds by the storm and the whole district was covered with hoards and shingles. Some of the buildings on the outer edge of the storm were not destroyed, but the wind showed its power by setting the houses at all angles of the compass. Residences vere turned fiimost clear around wltn- out being wrecked. The doctors of the city were on hand to render assistance to the injured, and they were kept busy all night attending to the sufferers. Doctors in surrounding towns were summoned by telegraph to assist in caring for t.ha wounded. The sufferers are receiving the best of attention. Some are so severely wounded that death cannot be averted, and the list of fatalities will be increased. took place at Vailelo; that the latter lost 100 killed and wounoed.

The Wnde Conrt Finds Against General Miles T9AsniNQTOx, May ].—The Wade- court of inquiry has concluded its work in connection with the allegations of General Miles concerning the beef supplies to the array during the- war with Spain. The report was signed by every member of the board and immediately forwarded to the white house, whence it was dispatched to the president in New York. The report is of about 30,000 words and goes fully into the questions which have been raised in connection with the army beef. The verdict is known to be that the charges which General Miles made before the war investigation commission are not sustained with reference to the refrigerated beef, although his contention that canned roast beef was not a suitable continuous ration is admitted. The court takes the position that the testimony is conclusive that both the refrigerated beef and the canned beef were in good condition when delivered to the government arid continued sa until issued to the troops, except in especial instances, where the deterioration was due to accidental conditions in transportation or to the in- IKieiices of the tropical climate. The court finds the charges of "embalming' the fresh beef to have been unsubstantiated by the testimony and says no chemicals were used to preserve it It also Minis that it would have been impracticable to secure beef on the hoof for the Cuban campaign. The finding i.s likewise in opposition to the assertion on the part of General Miles that the use of the beef was an experiment. The court does not think further pro- ccedinirs necessary. Tart of the Town Escapes. The west end of the village, built up around the osteopathic college, escaped. Many students' families dwell in the track of the storm, however. A complete roadway a quarter of a mile wide now lies through the town, windswept and with hardly a brick or board to mark where homes stood. Houses, trees, everything, was clemol- shecl and swept away. Help has boen telegraphed for by Mayor Noonun all along tho line of the Wabash railroad. Undertakers have telegraphed to St. Louis for carloads of coffins. A subscription has been started for the destitute and suffering, and outside help will be sorely needed. Miiiiy Killed at Nowtown.

The change involves General Miles' iissuming personal command o) all the American forces on the islands. The report became current in Washington that General Miles had made the request himself: that he be allowed to assume command in the Philippines nnd that tho president was inclined t;c grant his request. Realizing, tho dispatch says, how much is at stake in the Philippine campaign, tho administration is determined to end it, quickly and successfully, and the president believes General Miles is the man to push the finish along rapidly. NiARQUARDT MAKES CHARGES. German Claims II" Wns Robbed and. In- Kiiltcd Dy UritiKh Commander. J(Eni,i:i', April i!").— The Lokal An- zeigcr publishes two letters from Samoa dated March 33. One of them is from its special correspondent, Von AVolfVersdoriV, the other from Marquardt, a prominent German resident of Apia. From Marquardt's letter it appears it was he, and not Ilufnagel who was arrested by Captain Sturdee, of the l?''itish warship Porpoise, for bearing arms a-gainst tho liritish sailors. He says he was taken on board. the Porpoise where, he claims, IIG was grossly insulted by Captain Sturdee, and after fourteen hours of captivity, during which Limu no proof against him was advanced, he was transferred to the German warship, Falke, but with the condition that ho would not leave her. Marqnardt asserts that his property was stolen and destroyed by Mnlietoa- Tan us' hosts and that millions of other • German property was likewise destroyed. The writer then asks who will pay the damages. Marquardt asserts that the British consul, Mr., and Captain Sturdee were both guilty of the grossest conduct in exceeding' their treaty powers. He claims they treated Germans as captives and continued almost incessant shelling of German houses under various pretexts. STILL MISSING. TERRIBLE EXPLOSION.

WASHINGTON', April :.'5.—News from Dewey relative to the fate of Lieutenant Oilmore's party, that was ambushed near Baler, on the east coast of Lit/on, is eagerly awaited by the, navy department, and Secretary Lon^vhas cabled the admiral for a report, on tbe latest developments in connection with the mystery of the disappearance of these men. It is confidently expected that Dewey has <lo)io everything in his power to ascertain the fate of the gallant party, and some of the smaller vessels, it is thought, have been des- patched to the east coast to make the ascent of the river as far as Baler, twq miles from the sea, to trace the whereabouts of Lieutenant Oilmore and his crew, and, at any event, to bring away the beleagured Spanish garrison. Nothing has been received from Dewey in regard te tho mysterious disappearance of the men since his first dispatch announcing the event. There is still a strong belief that the men are alive and will be surrendered to tho United States sooner or later. Death of ISx-Governor Oglesby. LlNCOi.N', 111., April 35.—Richard J.
