MOCATDTE, Oct. 25.—Representative Oiesler and Senator Titus have tele- fnraphed a protest to the board of control against placing- button machines in the penitentiary. BREVITIES. TJe* ?/loin«i dispatch: The state i*oard of control authorizes the statement that the girls who engaged in the revolt at the reform school at Mitftbellville. and who are in jail in IMS Moines. will not be release/!. To make them freft would be to surrender; that would mean the end of the institution. It was currently rumored that the bo<ml intended to send many of the worst girl* to their homes, thasfreeing them. Jt is a mistake. It is the plan of the board to influence; the grand jurit-s in the counties from which the worst girls were fcent to indict them for the offenses for which they were sent to the reform school as incorrig- iblfes, and when indictments are fonnd, these girls may be Kent to their respective connties for trial and punishment. But none will be freed. What may prove to be one of the most mysterious cases of murder ever recorded in the annals of crime in Polk county came to light at Des Moines on the 22d, when the body of Mabel Schofleld, of Macksburg, Madi- Bori county, was found floating in the DCS Moines river, just below the city bath house. She was last seen alive by J. W. Thomas, of 1016 Woodland avenue, Saturday morning at 6:30 o'clock, when she left his IIOUKC in company with her mother, who was going to Macksburg by the 7 o'clock Great Western train. The next known of her was 10:30 Sunday night, when her brother, Clyde Kchofield, walked into McDermott's undertaking establishment and recognized her as his sister. When she left the Thomas home she said she would take her mother to the University car line, at Twelfth and High, and return immediately to Thomas's. Why she did not return, how she got to the other side of tbe city, and the circumstances that led to her death involve a mystery. There does not seem to be anything tangible to build on. Miss Maggie Hammond, a niece of Mr. Thomas's, and Mr. Thomas both knew her well, and say she was a Christian, conscientious girl and that she had no male friends. They declare that there is no man in the case, and are totally at a loss to account for her death. Des Moines dispatch: The supreme court has settled the contest fqr the office of sheriff of Marion county in favor of Metzer, who is now acting in that capacity.

SEW YORK, Oct. 27. — The provisions of the will of the late Cornelius Vanderbilt have been made public in a statement by Chauncey M. Depew. The will makes no mention of the marriage of Cornelius Vanderbilt, Jr., to Miss Wilson, nor to any quarrel between father and son because of the union; but apparently the father's displeasure was visited upon the eldest son, he receiving, all told, under the terras of the will, but 81,500,000, and a million of this is held in trust by the executors. With the $5,000,000 which Alfred gives his brother from his share, Cornelius will have a fortune of about 6*i,000,000. The bulk of the fortune goes to his four children, Alfred, Reginald, Gertrude and Gladys. Mrs. Vanderbilt is given the home in New York, the residence in Newport, 83,000,000 in securities or cash and an income of 825,000 annually. Alfred *s tbe real favorite and to him is given the responsibility of caring for the bulk of the estate. _ Big Ituaulan Fleet.

The transport docket at 1 a. m.. and tbe wharf was erorweSed with rrfaiires sa<3 friends. There -were flowers galore and each soldier had 2 posy in the muzzle of t"< Kra^-Jorgensoo. The parade mored shortly after 10 a. to. General S&after sent a battalion of the Third United States artillery aa an eseors. A part of this battalion dlsm<nnsted at the ri^at of the line. Then followed Governor Saaw and Arijatatit General Byers. mounted, arid the gubernatorial party in carriaa^s. The interest, horrerer. was centered in She brave fellows just bank from the Philippines. They-looked strong and fit as they sw uug- Ttp Market street with the tread of veterans. Colonel Loper and staS rode at the head of the ergiment. The band played Sonsa's "Stars and Stripes Forever" aa they passed Newspaper Row. Bells rrng, •whistles shrieked, the crowd cheered. the boys looked glad and the lowans here were prond of them- Bringing np in the rear were the ambulances and the remainder of the Third United States artillery. At Van Ness avenue and Iven street General Shafter and staff awaited tbe regiment. Governor Shaw and official party here fell out of line and reviewed the" troops with the guests of Shafter. the boys marching- rijyht on to the Presidio, where they now occupy the camp jnst vacated bV the First Montana. On the drill groands the regiment formed in % hollow square and Governor Shaw formally welcomed them home in the following- words: Officers and Men of FtttT-flm Regiment: laws, extends oficia.1 greeting :o her brave boys Ts-bo have np&eiu so nobir t&e honor of t&e nation and the reputation of tbe state. Thirty-six tours from the time of the president's erst call for troop* saw the Iowa National Gnard mobilized at Camp JIcKin- lev. From t&at time to this not a nia,n has prorea recreant; not a reeinent cas asked to be mastered oat or to be released from any doty. Neither have they complained of aay order. In canp, in trenche* and in battle the lowaas have distinguished theniselTes. The Iowa rerfments. one and all. have honored the state by their gentlemanly bearing- and s<<£djer-li5:e cone!act and have nefped to keep the record or" the American citizen soldier stainless in the eves of the world. Yon have been permitted "to participate in the military achievements of TOUT countrv's history. The service yon have rendered the other organization. 1 ! from vonr state is boundless. They all honor you. Each in its piace and in strictest obedience did the regiments do their dnty and do it well. Your services were pnrelv yolnntarr and were tendered after being fully advised of tbe terms of your enlistment and the cause in •which von were to be employed. By the terms of enlistment yon were entitled to be mustered ont when the peace treaty was ratified, but let It be forever known that neither the regiment as snch nor the oScers and men ever asked to be discharged. It is toyonr lasting credit that von are the last of the original volunteer a'rmy to be mustered oat. The services which von have more recentlv rendered have been'as honorable as that for which you first enrolled VGUJ- names. The sixteen engagements wit! the treacherous insurgents will bear comparison, both as to purpose and justification, with the more dazzling achievements in Manila bay. Santiago and San Juan. The flag you followed is the flag Dewev carried and it casts no pail under skv nor any people. It is not more nonorable to emancipate from the lepaiyet tyrannous power of Spain than from the Barbarous usurpersof A^uin- atdo. Hnman freedom cannot prosper under the flag of either, nor can it ever snfler under the Stars and Scripei, and now you are about to return to the state that sent you forth, amid her tears that for all these months has followed yon with her prayers: she now extends to you the glad hand of welcome. God bless you, boys: ' But there are vacant chairs: there are bereaved homes, and there are broken hearts. Bat these are-the universal price of great achievements. There has been no birth of freedom without pain and no remissions without Calvaries. The sympathies of a state and nation and a remembrance of self-sacrificing service is all the balm it is permit ted me to offer. Yon will now return to the avocations of peace. God bless yon wherever the duties of civil life may lead. Col. Loper then responded in a brief and soldierly manner, giving credit for all achievements to his officers and men. He said the regiment was glad to be home once more, but that not a single man felt that their work had been in vain. The government must be Bustained and the insurrection put down and to that end the government would ever have their moral as they have had their physical support. This sentiment was received with cheers. Secretary Dobson then delivered a short address which was enthusiastically received. General Shafter stated yesterday that he did not believe there would be any trouble to muster out the men, and that they would be in Iowa before the election was held.

LOSDOJT, Oct. 2-*.—The third reading | of the appropriation bill in the hotL-ie I of commons yesterday gave aii opportunity for further attacks on the government war policy. Lloyd-George, radical, declared the offers of the Transraal have been misrepresented, whereupon Lord Charr.berlain jumped up and protested, and Speaker Gaily interrened. Lloyd-George then withdrew his expression re.?areimg misrop- J resentation. The queen's speech was read and parliament prorogned with the nsnal formalities. The qceen'i speech at the prorogation of parliament is in part as follows: "I congratulate yoa on the brilliant qualities displayed" by the brave resri- ments upon whom the task of repellirtsr the invasion of my South African colonies has been laid. In doing so I cannot but express my profound sorrow that so many gallant officers and soldiers should have fallen in the performance of duty. I trust the divine bleftsinjr may rest upon your efforts and those of my g-allant army, and restore peace and good government to that portion of my empire and vindicate the honor of this countrv." BOERS GALMXG GROUND. General Young KstablUheg Outpost Near Cabahatuan. WASHINGTON, Oct. 28. — The following cablegram has been received at the war department from General Otis, at Manila: "Lawton's advance under Young north of San Isidro, near Cabanatuan. Established permanent station, three months' supplies being forwarded by San Juan river route, Lawton meets little resistance. Twenty-sixth volunT teers and battalion of Jfineteentb infantry sent to Iloilo." _ Territory Annexed. LONDON, Oct. 25.— The colonial office has received a cablegram stating that President Bteyn, of the Orange Free State, has issued a proclamation annexing the part of Cape Colony whieh |s north o| the Vaal river. This means Griquland west and Bechwanaland, and- is apparently in consequence of the free gtate forces having seized the railway and all stations north of Kim* berley ^ycept ^afebing, ujj^esjs Mafeking has fallep ginof $he ^stftewri, Tbe Reported British Victories Were Not Such in Fact. -LoxDOJf, Oct. 27.—The dispatches from the front are so diversified and contrary that it is difficult to outline the situation with any degree of precision. Three or four main facts, however, stand out prominently. General Symons' fight at Glencoe was not anything like a decisive victory as at first alleged, and General Ynle would in all probability have been annihilated or met the same fate as the captured Hussars if he had not retreated. White's "artillery duel" at Rietfontein was a very severe engagement, in which the rifle did great execution and in which success was also achieved at a distressing cost, The bombardment of Mafeking has commenced, with unknown results, and the Boers got their Hussar prisoners safely to Pretoria. Altogether the campaign is being pushed by the Boers so strenuously, on such sound strategical lines, that the situation of the British must in all probability give them cause for deep anxiety for some time to come.

Thorne, who was evidently very much afraid of Fitzsimmons, did not land a single blow, and only made one light attempt to lead with his left, the blow falling short by several inches. The blow delivered by Fitzsimmons was a short left, jolt, which did not pass through six inches of space before landing on Thome's •jaw. After Tborne was counted out, Fitesimmons picked him up bodily and curried him to his corner, placing him on a chair, which Sam Fitzpatrick, who had been confident of Thome's victory, had placed hurriedly on the olatform.

ANOTHER VICTORY REPORTED. Battle Xorth of Kimberlej- in Which Boers Suffered Heavilj-. LOSTJOX. Oct. 23.—During the momentary lull in the fighting in Xatal comes news from the western border which temporarily shifts the scene of chief interest to the beleagured-British force at Kimberley. The sharp struggle there on Tuesday appears to have been the result of a sortie with a view to breaking the cordon surrounding the place. The British, apparently 500 strong met 700 Boers and, according to official and other accounts, routed them after severe fighting in which the armored trains appear to have done valuable service. The Boers were entrenched strongly seven miles northward, and the Britfsh brilliantly carried the enemy's position without serious loss. SAYS HE WILL RESIGS.
