St.—At midnight the fies Moires police department received a telephone message from Mitchelville stating that the girls in the state reform school were in rebellion, that over ioo of the 186 inmates had broken out of the building and were making all kinds of threats about what they would do. The police of this city were asked to send assistance to quell the riot, and at 12:65 Sheriff Stout and a force of deputies left for the scene of the trouble. Sunday evening about 7 o'clock twenty of the worst girls in the reformatory escaped. Three hours later the girls were captured and returned to the school, and their recapture so incensed the others that they immediately' started a riot, kicked out the windows, took possession of the building and grounds and made many threats. The usually quiet and- orderly town of Mitchelville was awakened at 11 o'clock by the ringing of the chapel bell, and most of the citizens were soon in the streets. The girls who wanted to run away did so. There were, perhaps, twenty of them. The rest in squads of ten or fifteen marched around town yelling, swearing and hooting, .when not singing. When the Des Moines officers arrived the ringleaders were singled out by the help of Mr. Miller and lodged in the basement of the chapel building. The doors and windows of this were amply guarded. It is estimated that 75 were placed in this basement. The girls make the complaint that they are not properly fed and have to work too hard. PLOT TO WRECK AND ROB TRAIN, NEWS IN GENERAL! BOEHS DEFEATED, tfcMA IS STARVING. The Situation In tfa« Central Province* Is Very Grave. 6 StittiA, India, Oct. Sl.-^-At a meeting of the Council of India, Eaveze said the famine affected ah area of 100,000 miles of British territory and 250,000 miles of territory of the native states, each section Containing upwards of 15,000,000 people. The situation in the Central provinces, particularly Berar, Gttserat, north Deccanj southeast and central Punjab, Baroda, Indore and Eajaputana, is distinctly grave. KaveZe said he thought the extreme limit of high prices, however, have already been reached and that the food supplies from Burma and Bengal would prove sufficient. This would .justify the government in abstaining from the importation of foreign grain or from otherwise interfering with trade. He estimated that direct relief would cost over 1,500,000 rupees, in addition to loans until March, and said a quarter of a million people are already receiving assistance. The viceroy, Lord Curzon, said lie hoped the experience he hoped shortly to gain in visiting the principal area of distress would enable him to render useful aid and enter more closely into the joys and sorrows of the Indian people. ONE HUNDRED BOERS KILLED. Believed the Transport Senator Has Suffered Badly. VICTORIA, B. C., Oct. 19.—The steamer Empress of India has arrived from Japan, and had the roughest trip she ever experienced. Fears are expressed by the ofiicers for the transport steamer Senator, carrying home the Fifty- first Iowa. She left Yokohama for San Francisco eight hours before the Empress. Having immense upper works she would fare badly in a gale. SAN FBANOISOO, Oct. '19.—The Senator is considered the safest steamer in the transport service. The concensus of opinion is that she will arrive safely, though a few days overdue. Captain Baneson, the head of the transport service here says: "The Senator will arrive safely. She is the best vessel we have. I am sorry that she had ' heavy weather, but anticipate nothing more serious than a few days' delay." Can't Get Decree. DESMOINKS, Oct. 21,—The supreme court of Iowa holds that under the laws of this state no man or woman can get a decree of divorce on the simple grounds of incompatibility of temperament.

' CHARLES CITY, Oct. 21.—A plot to wreck and _ rob a north-bound passenger 'train on the Burlington, Cedar Eapids and Northern road near Eock-, ford has been revealed by four arrests. It is stated that the attempted crime was the third futile effort of the kind within three weeks. The men arrested are Frank Hay of Eockford; Young Darkett, living near Nora Springs; Charles Wilson and "Jupe" Brockett. The first two have both served time in the penitentiary, and all are said to be members of an organized gang of would-be train wreckers. Other suspects are under surveillance. Brockett is said to have confessed. The train which escaped wreck on the 15th had 5535,000 in cash on its express car. It passed safely over a section of track which was displaced, but news of the affair was kept secret until the guilty parties had been taken into custody. EIGHT THOUSAND SHORT. Shelled Trucks Which Had Been Loaded With Dynamite. CAPK TOWN, Oct. 21.—Dispatches dated Mafeking, Saturday night, and carried by dispatch riders via Kuruman and Danielskull to Hooktown, state that Colonel Baden-Powell inflicted a tremendous blow on the Boers nine miles north of Mafeking. Two trucks laden with dynamite, which it was judged unsafe to keep in Mafeking on account of the risk of explosion should the town be shelled, were sent nine miles out in the hope that the Boers would shell and explode them. And so it happened. When the engine had uncoupled from the trucks and retreated about a mile, the enemy shelled the trucks, with the result that a terrible explosion occurred, killing, it, is estimated, 100 Boers.

Bank Cashier Hendrlok Has Disappeared. Sioux CENTER, Oct. 21.—State Bank Examiner, Fred A. Bennett of Manning came here to investigate the condition of the citizens' state bank. The bank had been very slow in making reports after calls, and the last report was not sent in till several weeks after the call of September 7 was made. Auditor Merriam, it is understood, instructed Mr. Bennett to make a careful investigation. He found that Cashier Jeremiah Kendrick had skipped and is $8,000 short in his cash. It is not yet known what use he has made of the money, and the investigation is not nearly completed. Kendrick's bond was $10,000, so that unless more losses are discovered the b ( ank will be safe. Charged With Defrauding a Woman. WATKBLOO, Oct. 22.—M. J. Butterfield, a young attorney, was arrested charged with conspiracy to defraud. Butterfleld, a real estate man named Sam I. Williams, and a young farmer named Fred Falk, it is claimed, conspired to transfer a farm to defraud Falk's mother out of a claim she had on the same. Falk was arrested on another charge and made affidavit to the whole transaction. A warrant is also issued for Williams but he cannot be found. Dewey's Health Is Not of the Best. WASHINGTON, Oct. 23.—By the advice of his physician, Admiral Dewey has cancelled his proposed trips to Philadelphia and Atlanta and will accept no more invitations. The statement issued from the office says he "finds the mental strain incident to such a visit seriously affecting his health." It is said by one of the admiral's friends that this is not to be taken as an indication of any alarming change in the admiral's health, but that to a man of his temperament excitement incident to various public functions in which he has been a participant has proved unusually trying. He will remain as quiet as possible the balance of the winter. British Capture a Number of dun* After A Hard Fight, LONDON, Oct. 21.—The following official dispatch from Ladysmith was received yesterday afternoon: "This from Glencoe: We were attacked at daylight by a force roughly estimated at 4,000. They had placed five guns in a position on the hill 5,400 yards east Of our camp, and flred plugged shells. Their artillery did no damage. Our infantry • formed an attack and we got our guns into position. After the position of the enemy had been shelled, our infantry advanced to attack and after a hard fight lasting till 1:30 p. m., the almost inaccessible position was taken, the enemy retiring eastward. All the Boer guns were captured. General Symons is severely wounded. Our losses are heavy, and will be telegraphed soon as possible." GLENCOE CAMP, Oct. 21.—The way the King's royal rifles and the Dublin fusileers stormed the position was one of the most splendid sights ever seen. The firing of the Boers was not as deadly as might have been expected from troops occupying such an excellent position, but the infantry lost heavily going up the hill, and only the consumately brilliant way in which General Symons had trained them to fighting of the kind saved them from being swept away. Indeed, the hill was almost inaccessible to the storm? ing party, and any hesitation would have lost the day. The enemy's guns, so far as the correspondent could see, were all abandoned, for the Boers had no time to remove them, A stream of fugitives poured down the hillside into the valley, where the battle swept on with no abatement. A rough estimate places the British loss at 250 killed and wounded, and that of the Boers at 800. , LONDON, Oct. 21.—A Glencoe camp correspondent, telegraphing yesterday says: "At this moment fighting is still going on, but the defeat of the enemy is already complete and crushing, and it looks as though few would escape. Our losses arc probably 300 killed or wounded, and that of the Boe'rs thrice as many." Dun Reports Business Expanding Mills Active* WAR HAS HAD NO BAD f FFECT, Prices Are Still Advancing In Almost Every Line—Wheat becllhes In Price in Spite of Unfavorable crop Report) —The Failures. & General Symons Mortally Wounded. LONDON, Oct. 21.—The following telegram comes from Major Yule, dated from Glencoe Camp: "I regret to report that General Symons is mortally wounded. Other casualties will follow. The important success to-day is due to General Symons' great courage and fine generalship, and to the gallant example and confidence he gave to the troops under his command." SAN ISIDRO TAKEN. Gen. Young's Column Takes the Town With Small Loss. MANILA, Oct 31.—General Young's advance guard of General Lawton's column loft Cabiao Thursday morning and entered San Isidro at half-past one. The American loss was one killed and three wounded. The heaviest resistance met with was an San Fernando, where the enemy destroyed a bridge. General Pio Del Pilar arrived from San Miguel and personally commanded the Filipinos. He and the bulk of the enemy retreated up the river. One Spaniard and fifteen in- surrectos were captured. The loss of the enemy is not known. The townspeople appear to be friendly. PREPARING TO MOVE. BREVITIES. The Farmers Tribune of Des Moines issues an edition of 250,000 copies this week. This is a larger number of papers than any other paper in the state has ever issued. They are offering twelve bicycles, or harness, guns, cameras, etc. , free to those sending correct answers to a puzzle, They also give 100 other premiums. It would pay anyone to watch for this paper as a bicycle may be secured free. Attorney General Remley made an argument a few days ago before the supreme court for • a rehearing in the well-known Owl ftake case. It involves the question of whether the meandered lakes of Iowa shall be classed under the head of swamplands. The state is fighting to preserve them, This case went against the state, and Mr. Eemley proposes to take it into the United States federal courts if the state does not secure a rehearing and reversal of opinion.

Engagement at Klandslagaato, In Which Boers Are Defeated. LONDON, Oct. 23.—The war office yesterday published a dispatch to the secretary of war, the Marquis of Lansdowne, from the general commanding in Natal, Sir George Stewart White, regarding the engagement at Eland- slaagate, between Glencoe and Ladysmith,' when the British under General French routed the Transvaal forces under General Jan H. M. Kock, second in command of the Transvaal army, who was himself wounded and captured and has since died. The dispatch shows it to have been a brilliant feat of arms. The Boers were strongly entrenched and fought with their wonted bravery. They seized every opportunity of coming into action, and ran to serve their guns whenever they could get a chance. The British wounded are now being taken to Ladysmith. Every care and attention are also being given to the Boer wounded, who are being dispatched down the country. It is reported here from Glencoe that the Boer force under Commandant General Joubert has attacked, or is about to attack, the British entrenched position at Glencoe. MANY OFFICERS KILLED. British Victory Purchased at a Heavy Price. LONDON, Oct. 33.—The list of oflicers and men killed and wounded shows that the British victory was bought at a heavy price. Besides General Symons, mortally .wounded, two colonels, three captains and .five lieutenants were killed and three majors, six captains and lieutenants were wounded. The heavy loss among the oflicers is due to their valiant but insensate sticking to army traditions, in refusing to use the cover of which the men availed themselves while storming the •Boer'position, Among the rank and file.the Hussars had 7 wounded; the artillery, I killed and 3 wounded; the Leicestershire regiment, 1 wounded; King's Bifles, 11 killed and 68 wound-' ed; Irish Fusileers, 14 killed and 30 wounded; Dublin Fusileers, 4 killed and 41 wounded; Natal police, ? wounded, Men and money Voted, LONDON, Oct. 21.—The house of commons yesterday passed an address of thanks to the queen for royal message calling out the militia, The government estimate of troops was adopted anfl jgj.0,000,000 to carry on the war was voted. In the debate John Dillon characterised the war as a *'hideous and damnable massacre," and William Redmond wishe4 the ministers "joy of the blooc| of the Bpers and your victory over the poor Transvaal farmers." Criminals Taking Cei»$us.

Dun Co.'s weekly review of trade says: "In most lines business continues to expand, though in some there are signs that buying has • been checked either because prices have outrun the views of buyers, or because recent pur- Chases have been so heavy that nobody is left in need. Prices are still advancing in almost every line, supported by rising prices of materials, and works everywhere are still crowded to their utmost capacity, while at many points it is found hard to get enough competent hands. But the volume of business expressed in values rises much more than prices, showing a remarkable increase in quantities of goods exchanged. "The outbreak of war in South Africa has brought no such changes as many feared. In England the markets have treated It as an event already overdiscounted, and relations with this country were not appreciably affected. "Wheat has declined l^ic in price in spite of unfavorable crop reports. Wool has enlisted a 'powerful speculative interest, and sales of 11,293,000 pounds for the week at the three central markets represent about twice the consumption. Bessemer sales at ?23 for next year and $24.50 for this year at Pittsburg are reported, with billet sales at ?39 to $40, and sales of sheet bars at ?36 per ton. "Failures for the week have been 145 in the United States, against 221 last year, and 20 in Canada, against 24 last year." ' NATIONAL W.C.T.U, IN SESSION -Address by COLUMBIA WINS YACHT RAOfi. Final Heat Wai Won By the Boat. NEW YofcK, Oct. 21.—In breeze yesterday, the Columbia the Shamrock for a third time America's cup remains in the Unite)] States. It was such a breeze as 81* Thomas Lipton had been praying f 0 * —18 to 80 knots per hour. The rftca to the outer mark was a battle royal The Shamrock made good use of her one minute to an advantage at the start and was many boats lengths ahead before the defender got over But the latter slowly but surely moved up on the challenger. When the oute* mark was well in sight the boats were racing even, with the American in better position. Three times she tried to pass the Shamrock without Success. Then gradually she dug her nose in the front, and when they rounded th« mark the Columbia had a lead of about seven seconds. In the beat to the fl n - ish mark, the Columbia again showed her superiority in windward work She pointed higher, footed faster and carried herself better than the chal. longer. It was a steady increase to her lead all the way. The Columbia beat the- Shamrock six minutes and eighteen seconds of actual and six minutes and thirty-four seconds rected time. CUP WILL REMAIN HERE. cor- Seattle Convention Opens the President. Seattle, Wash., Oct. 23.—White rib- boners to the number of 500 are in Seattle participating in the twenty- fifth annual convention of the Woman's Christian Temperance union and celebrating in song, prayer and in joyful thanksgiving the silver jubilee of the organization. The convention was formally opened by the national president, Mrs. Lillian M. Stevens, who said in part: "Since the first convention great advance has been made in the cause of purity, total abstinence and prohibition. Better laws bearing upon questions of the purity and sanctity of the home have been enactod, among them laws raising the age of protection for girls until its average is now 14 instead of 10, and In some states as high as 18 years. The influence of woman has been in several instances instrumental in retiring immoral men from office and in preventing their nomination and election to positions of trust and honor. The consumption of alcoholic drinks is growing less year after year. There is only about one-half as much consumed per capita in the United States as there was a quarter of a century ago. This marks us as the most temperate of all nations. It is deplorable that the last page of this century's history should be blotted with the story of war. We cannot but pray that the hearts of those in authority may be moved to conciliate the Filipinos as brothers rather than to treat them as rebels. The effect of the conference at The Hague must be to hasten the coming of universal peace. Let us by petition and in all .other reasonable ways seek to bring about the rejection or expulsion of Brigham H. Roberts from the Fifty-sixth congress. To have an avowed polygamist sit as a lawmaker ut Washington would be 'an insult to the virtue of womanhood and to the manhood of the nation."' The reports of the treasurer and corresponding secretary were read and accepted. Mrs. Helen M. Barker, the national treasurer, reported a balance of $3,435. This is larger than last year, covering eleven months, and was encouraging. The Willard memorial fund amounts to $3,268, The life membership fund received during the year $2,106. The bequests aggregated $2,000. The organizing work cost $1,200, and the superintendents had expended over $7,000. All In all it was stated the outlook from a •financial standpoint was very satisfactory. Columbia Demonstrates Her Superiority Over the Shamrock. NKW YOBK, Oct. 17.—The cup which the old schooner America won so commandingly against all comers over the course around the Isle of Wight in 1851 and brought back across the seas will probably remain hcre.another year, a defiance to the world. In a glorioua breeze, over a windward and leeward course of thirty miles, the Columbia scored against the Shamrock yesterday in the first race of the 3899 series for the trophy. She bounded across the finish lino fully a mile and a half ahead of the challenger, defeating her by ten minutes and fourteen seconds actual time, or ten minutes and eight seconds corrected time, after allowing the six seconds handicap which the Columbia must concede to the challenger on account of her longer water line. The Yankee boat out-generalled her at the sta-rt, beat her hopelessly in windward work to the outer mark and gained twenty-two seconds in the run homo before the wind. There was a good, strong ten to twelve-knot breeze and it held throughout the race. Ii is undoubtedly a bitter blow, because th& English hopes of lifting the cup have never been higher since the Thistle met the Volunteer in 1887. Sir Thomas Lipton, like the true sportsman that he is, confessed after, the race that he had been fairly beaten. He had apologies to make. ENGLISH STATEMENT. no Indicates the Boors Have as Yet Accomplished Little. LONDON, Oct. SO.—The war office last evening issued the folio wing bulletin: "No news of importance has been received from Natal today. The cavalry attached to our forces at Ladysmith and Dundee are engaged in observing the enemy's movements, Steps have been taken to secure Pietermaritssburg and Durban against raids on the western frontier. "There is no recent intelligence from Kimberley or Mafeking, both places being exit off from railway and telegraphic communication. It is believed, however, that a skirmish took place on Sunday, six miles south of Kimberley, and that the Boers were beaten off with some loss by an armored train. There was some fighting at Mafeking on Friday or Saturday, ending with a repulse of the attacking force. "Boers in considerable numbers are assembled opposite Aliwai North and Bethulie, on the Orange river. Railway communication with the Orange Free State anrt the Transvaal has now- ceased, the remaining refugees having been warned to leave by way of Delagoa bay." War Not Popular In Ireland.
