S ME UPPER DES MOlKESSt ALGQNA, IOWA, WEPNljgMg. 15 8J& THE NEWS IN IOWA At*ACKS Ttife tAt*. His Attorney* Clftlm that Milk Shonld Ito Artnltftrfttcd. Dies MOINKS, Nov. 12.—G. F. Scblen- ker, the dairyman, was convicted in Judge Bishop's court of selling-adulterated milk. The jury rendered its verdict without leaving the court room. The defendant admitted frankly on the witness stand that he had made a practice of putting boraeic acid into the milk which he delivered to his customers every day. It was put in as a preservative, he declared, and was absolutely harmless. But there is a new point in law brought out in the trial of this case. The code of Iowa provides that putting water or boraeic acid; or any other foreign substance into milk, is adulteration. The code further provides that if such milk is sold or exposed for sale, a crime against the state is committed. In their motion for a new trial of the Schlcnker case, the attorneys for the defense will argue that such a clause in the code is unconstitutional. They will also maintain also that since boraeic acid improves -the quality of milk, rather than injuring it, the use of the acid cannot properly be termed adulteration; that adulteration-implies injury. The decision of these questions on the legality of the law will rest with Judge Bishop when the defendant's arguments for a new trial are advanced. SUICIDE AT MAKION. Afraid of Arrest for Alleged Crime Committed In Germany. CEDAII RAPIDS, Nov. 9.—Albert Krakowska, a I'olander about 37 years of age, who caine to Marion a little over a month ago, having fled from his home in Germany to escape prosecution for a violation of the meat laws of that country, committed suicide in the Frelsinger hotel at Marion. He thought the officers were watching him, and this fear, coupled with homesickness from the fact he had not been able to hear from his wife and six children in Germany, caused him to take the rash step. He had taken a strap from his valise and, placing it around his neck, tied it to the hinge of the door to his room, and pulling his feet oft' the floor, strangled to death, being dead when found by his cousin. He was employed around the Milwaukee coal house in Marion. He left a letter to his wife, telling her what to do with their property, and stating that he thought he was doing the best. SOLDIER BOYS BANQUETED. Companies A and II Given a Royal Reception at Des MotneH. DES MOINES, Nov. 10.—Former members of the Fifty-first Iowa regiment learned, in a measure, the esteem in which they are held in Des Moines and the public appreciation which exists of their valor and patriotism.

It was followed by a banquet at the Savery, at which the speakers told of the work of the regiment and spoke in praise of the individual members, and especially of the boys of Companies A and H, who went from Des Moines. Eeceptions were held at Drake University and at the West Des Moines high school for returned soldier students. At the banquet addresses were made by Governor Shaw, General Given, Judge Bishop, Colonel Loper, Lieutenant Hubbard and Captains Kihlbohm and Worthington. APPOINT fcELAND AND CONIFF.

CEDAK RAPIDS, Nov. 13.—A fiendish crime was committed at Urbana, Henton county. About 3 o'clock an explosion in the Monitor office wrecked the plant of that paper and destroyed the building. The noise aroused the town. Clarence Burrell, a young man, rushed from the house to learn the cause and as he stepped in front of J. D. Uurrell's store an explosion occurred inside, carrying out the front of the building. He was almost beheaded by the flying derbis. A piece of timber was driven through his heart and his body blown across the street. The Mason, Odd Fellows and Wood- me,n lodges, which were over Burrell's store, were wrecked along with the entire building. The safe containing a large sum of money was untouched. The sole motive for the crime appears to have been to injure the property of the individuals. The county is greatly excited. Posses are out searching in every direction. Adjutant-General')) Report. DEB MOINES, Nov. 12.—The biennial report of the adjiitant-general to the governor and legislature will be completed on time, Nov. 30. The law fixes tins as the date for the report to be filed, General Byers' enforced absences from the office during the fall have somewhat embarrassed the force in work on the report, but it is announced that by hard work it will be completed on time. II will be the most pretentious document of its kind sent out from the office in many y-aars. The volume will include from 300 to 400 pages, being one of the largest reports of the year.. It will contain the full official history of the four Iowa regiments during the Spanish war, and a great deal of other information. Myroii B. Spencer Put on Trial.

Hazen were united in marriage yesterday at the rectory of St. Paul's Catholic church. After procuring the license for the wedding, Lieut. Caldwell, the private secretary of the admiral, called on Father Mackin, of whose church Mrs. Hazen is a communicant, and arranged for the wedding. As Admiral Dewey is not a Catholic, a special dispensation was required for the performance of the ceremony, and this was procured by Father Mackin from Bishop Curtis, vicar general of the diocese of Baltimore. Father Mackin performed the ceremony, assisted by Rev. Joseph A. Foley, assistant pastor, and Rev. S. Hurlbut. The ceremony was strictly private, and of the simplest character. The bride was accompanied by Mrs. Washington McLean, her mother, and Mrs. Ludlow, her sister, while Admiral Dewey was accompanied by Lieutenant Caldwell, his aide. There were no other guests, and after the ceremony the admiral and Mrs. Dewey entered a carriage and were driven to the residence of Mrs. Washington McLean, where a wedding breakfast was served. At 12:45 they left for New York. At the close of the ceremony the admiral grasped Father Mackin's hand and said: "Father, I am very greatly pleased to have been married by you, for I know at one time in your life you were n, sailor." The arrangements for the wedding were made with all the secrecy which attended the whole affair. ROOM FOR VERY GRAVE FKARS. Triumphant Utterances of the British Press Not Justified. LONDON. Nov. 9.—Beyond the crop of ever-recurring rumors, mostly without foundation, there is little news from the front. An official dispatch from General Buller shows that Ladysmith was still in fighting trim Sunday and anticipating the recommencement of the bombardment Monday. There is nothing, apparently, to justify the triumphant utterances in the British press. While it is admitted there is some room for congratulation, there is, it is added, room for grave fears. The announcement yesterday that 3,000 Boers, with big guns, left Pretoria on the way to the southern border, is said to merely be a ruse to hide the real destination of this force, which it is believed is Ladysmith. Those best qualified to express an opinion on the subject believe that the quiescence of the Boers is ominous, and that they expect shortly to hear of large accessions of Boer guns in position, and a severe bombardment of the beleagured camp. ARE FORTIFV1NG. British Strengthening Their Works at I.iidysmitlf. LONDON, Nov. 11.— General Buller cables from Cape Town that the following was received by pigeon post from General White at Ladysmith: "Bombardment at long range by heavy guns continues daily. A few castialties are occurring, but no serious harm done. The Boers sent in a number of refugees from the Transvaal under a flag of truce. The flag of truce from Ladysmith met them outside the pickets. When the party separated the Boer guns fired on it before they •reached our pickets. Major Gale, of the Royal Engineers, was wounded while sending a message. The entrenchments are daily growing stronger and the supply of provisions is ample." AGUIN.VLDO IN MOUNTAINS. He is Forced Beyond the Territory of the WASHINGTON, Nov. 11. — Great interest is felt in the war department over Aguinaldo's sudden change of base northeastward from Tarlac to Boam- baug, 100 miles distant. The most interesting feature of the new situation is Aguinaldo has boon forced out of the Tagalo country into tho region to the north where Tagalo is not. spoken, where the mountains are filled with Negritos and other savage tribes hostile to the Tagalos. This is aboxit the most mountainous and inaccessible part of tho island. _ Germany to Be Neutral. BEULIN, Nov. 10. — Under instructions r'rom the emperor an order has been issued to commanders of districts in which his majesty expresses the wish that no German officers be granted leave to go to South Africa. The order adds that everything will bo done to prevent former officers from taking part in the conflict in South Africa, his purpose being to avoid every appearance of violating strict neutrality.

MANILA, Nov. li.—Gehci-at Wheat- on'B expedition arrived off San Fabian Monday night, but the surf was too high to permit the landing of troops :n small boats. Tuesday morning the expedition approached Lingayan, a suburb of Dagupan. which has a sheltered harbor with high sand dunes stretching from the water to town. The Bennington, Helena, Manila, Cal- iao and Samar shelled the town and beach for an hour with the full strength of their batteries, but there was no response, nov was there visible sign of life. The troops landed in boats, five steam launches, each towing four boats. When these approached the shore and the troops began to land a long line of insurgents rose from the sand and poured a heavy volley over the heads of the soldiers, following this with a rapid f usilade. The insurgents were excited and fired high, a few of their bullets striking the boats and two men were wounded. The companies formed and were ordered to lie down in the sand. They gave the insurgents a few volleys and then charged, driving the enemy with a rush. The Filipinos had lain behind the dunes during the bornbai-dinent, the shells ploughing through the sand and doing them little if any damage. The gunboat Manila brought the news that when she left General Wheaton with his entire force of 2,700 men was marching eastward leaving Dagupan. ELECTION RESUI/1'8 IN KENTUCKY. Botii Republicans and Democrats Claim Victory. LOUISVII.MS, Ky., Nov. 13.—The official count has been consumed in about half the counties of the state. In GO of the 119 counties it was completed and the official returns made. These in the net results, show a gain for Taylor.

In democraeic circles there is no disposition to concede the republican claims. Goebel claims his plurality will be about 5,000. HOLLAND WARNS DR. LEYDS. Tells the Transvaal Agent His Visits Are Not Desired. TUK HAGUE, Nov. 11.—Dr. Leyds, the European agent of the Transvaal government, has received a friendly intimation that his visits to Holland must be discontinued during the war. The Transvaal legation at Brussels announces that men of all nationalities are offering to enlist in the Boer army. The legation, however, has no power to accept these offers. MORE TERRITORY FOR UNCLE SAM. One of the Samoaii Islands Reverts to This Government. LONDON, Nov. 10.—The afternoon papers express satisfaction at the Sa- rnoan settlement. They arc especially gratified at the evidence of continued good underssanding between the three nations. The acquisition of Tutuila is regarded as settling the seal on tlte ex pansionist policy of the United States, and a great development of the American navy is anticipated and welcomed. COLLECTING TAXES IN MANILA, WASHINGTON, Nov. 10. — Mail advices to the war department state that a native with a commission as lieutenant colonel in the insurgent army, has been captured in Manila. The prisoner had credentials from Aguinaldo to collect taxes from the inhabitants of Manila. and had been doing so and remitting the money to the rebel commander. It is also stated that Major Thompson of the signal corps has been relieved from his position of press censor, and that he has been succeeded by a member of General Otis' staff. British Troops to the Front, LONDON, Nov. 13. — The last infantry battalions under orders for South Africa left England Saturday and the last of the Hussars also sailed, leaving the household regiment only. The cavalry arc still to be dispatched, and last, but by no means least, the first battery of Howitzer artillery started. Great things are expected of the Howitzer battery, of which there are only three in the British army. These five- inch breech-loaders are claimed to be of superior character and it is expected will be particularly serviceable in removing the Boers IVoin the hills. Negroes Ask to be Deported. MACON, GA., Nov. 11. — Congressman Bartlett and Senator Bacon have received a petition signed by about 100 negroes, asking them to use their best efforts to secure the passage of a law whereby the negroes might be deported to Africa.

MANILA,NOV. 10.— General Wheaton 's expedition to North Luzon was .landed at Dagupan Tuesday. Two Americans were wounded. The expedition is advancing eastward. _ __^ ELECTIprRETUMS, IOWA RtPUBLICAtilY ALMOST 60,000 PLURALITY, Republicans Also Catry Ohio, Massachusetts and Kentucky— Maryland and Nebraska Are Democratic. DES MOISES, Nov. 9. — Practically complete unofficial returns from Iowa indicate that Governor Shaw is reelected by 56,000 plurality. The remainder of the republican ticket runs close to Governor Shaw. The extent of the republican gains will be better appreciated, perhaps, when it is stated that there will probably be only eighteen democrats in the next house. In the last house there were thirty-eight, so that the democrats lose more than half in the lower body. By a curious state of facts, however, the democrats gain three in the senate, so that they will have fifteen in the next senate, as against twelve in the last senate. The middle-of-the-road populists east a very small vote, but the prohibition ticket, headed by Atwood. -will poll just about 10,000, the heaviest vote it has received in a number of years. KENTUCKY. Louisville, Nov. 8. — No matter what result the face of the returns of the election show, a contest is very likely to occur. Additional returns continue to show republican gains, and basing an estimate upon the normal complexion of the precincts still unreported, indicate a plurality of 0,000 or 8,000 for W. S. Taylor for governor. The belated returns are mostly from mountain counties, which are strongly republican. The Goebel people cling to their claim of a plurality of 5,000 in the state, these figures being the estimate made by the nominee himself. At republican headquarters in this city Taylor's plurality is placed at 8,000. In neither case is it possible to get the figures upon which the claim is based. The legislature is democratic. MABYLAND. Baltimore, Nov. 9. — Unofficial returns show that the democrats swept practically everything before them. John Walter Smith, Dr. Joshua Hering and Isidor llayner, their candidates for governor, comptroller and attorney general, respectively, were elected by approximately 11,300 majority. onio. Cincinnati, Nov. 9. — Unofficial returns have been received by the Western Union from all counties in Ohio, with a few scattering precincts estimated. The footings give Nash, R., for governor, a plurality of 49,205. Jones' vote aggregates about 100,000. NEBRASKA. Lincoln, Nov. 9. — Complete county returns do not materially change the early estimates of the results of election. The fusionists carry the state by 13,000, perhaps more, on the face of the returns from neai-ly half the counties. They elect William Neville to congress over Moses P. Kinkaid in the sixth district, but by a reduced majority, and gain slightly in judicial districts. NKW YOIUC. New York, Nov. 9. — Returns received from up the state increase the reptibli- can assembly membership to 93, against 57 democrats, a republican gain of 12. Democrats are jubilant over the victory in Boston, which after giving the republicans a plurality for governor the past three years, gave Paine, dem., a plurality of 63,000. PENNSYLVANIA. Philadelphia, Nov. 9. — Complete returns from 60 of the 67 counties in the state, and including Philadelphia, and with carefully reviser! estimates from the seven missing counties, show a plurality of 109,405 for Uarnett, rep. NEW JEKSEY. New Dork, Nov. 9. — Taking the highest candidate for county office on each ticket in all the counties, the republican plurality in New Jersey is well above 30,000.

STORYETTES, Baron Aldersoii once remarked to an Advocate who was noted for tho personal nature of the. questions ho addressed to witnesses, "Really, yon seem to think the art of cross-examina-1 tion is to examine crossly." Dr. Emily Blackwell, one of the pio neers of her sex in medicine, heard i young physician deliver a fierce dia tribe against opening the doors of thi profession to women. When ho ceased j she asked: "Will you please tell me 1 one reason why they should not prac-, tice medicine?" "Certainly, madam;! they haven't the muscle, the brawn, the physical strength." "I see sir.. \ Your conception of a sick-room is a slaughter house; mine is not." One of the leaders of the Greenacrt Chatauqua in Maine is Dr. Lewis N. ! James. At the recent summer session there were lecturers numberless from all over the world. Meeting a friend, the doctor asked him how he was enjoying himself. "Finely up to yesterday, when I heard Professor X," "Didn't he lecture well?" "Not ill- all; he simply told us what he didn't know." "Is he still talking?" queried the doctor as he walked away. Two Boston men, on their way to Taunton on their bicycles, stopped at a farm house for bread and milk. A small boy of six or thereabout seemed interested in them, and offered to dq the "cake walk" for two cents. Aftei the performance they invited him tq have a cooky. He took one without any acknowledgement, when one o\ them asked, "Do you know whatj 'thank you' is in English?" Without any hesitation the youngster madcj answer, "Do you know what shut up is in French?" Probably the easiest college examination on record is that recorded iu the "Life of Dean Liddell." Christ Church was the resort of many gentlemen commoners who passed on their family, not their scholastic attainments. Still, they had to be examined and one of them, who had been set to attend a course of lectures on the atmosphere, came before Osbourne Gordon for an inquiry into his very human understanding. "Well, Mr. ," said Gordon, "what is the atmosphere composed of?" After much hesitation the man replied, "/inc." "Thank you," said Gordon, "that will do. Good morning." While at Harrow, Dean Vaughn was* returning home late one evening, when he caught sight of a boy who ought to havo been fast asleep in bed. As soon as tho boy saw the dreaded figure he ran for dear life, with Dr. Vaughn in hot pursuit. He succeeded in catching the boy by one of his coat tails, when there was a sudden wrench, and the youngster was off again, leaving a coat-tail in tho head's hands. The master made sure that ho would now find out the ciilprit next morning, and did not pursue farther. But noxt day, to his blank astonishment, every boy of the sixth form had only one tail to his coat. TryGrain=0!
