Blakslee, one of i largest and most (successful feeders IH western Iowa, consigned and delivered to Schwarzchild. Snlzbargcr Jk Co., 431 bead of fine, fat cattle, averaging in weight about 1.395 net, making- a train of twenty-seven car loads, tor -which he received a check of about f38,000. The cattle were loaded at Marne and shipped over the Bock Inland as far as .Toilet. 111., being transferred to the Lake Shore at that point. Thirty-one bead will be slaughtered at New York city, the remaining 400 will be loaded or transported to Newport Xews for export to London and Liverpool.

By the deal the Illinois Central.

The report is of a decidedly sensational character, finds nwch fault with the manner in which the school has been conducted,, the confining together of girls of all ages and degrees of meanness, the action of th<e board of control in changing the officers and catling down the salaries of employes, and its general attitude toward the school. Further than tbis. Superintendent Miller is taken to task and practically held responsible for the recent riots j because of his failure to take jnea-v- { ures to qneU the disturbance when ! it first broke out and for subjecting to j punishment a!5 the girls in one of the : dormitories for the misdeeds of a fe-v. i The committing magistrates are also J censured and are accused of mak:nf I the school a damping ground for all i kinds of vice. Fault is found with the , measure recently enacted by the leg} islature raising the age at which girls j committed to tbe school shall be re- j leased from 2s to 21 years. The lack i of supervision at the school which per- S mitted girls to resort to secret places | for immoral purposes is condemned. as are some of the methods of punishment employed at the school, principal of which -was the wiring of girls to a log- chain in a cemented basement NEWS IN GENERAL BOERS ARE JCBILAXT. Say Tlwj- trm Possess An *f Sealit Afrfciu CAFE To-«tsr.

Late arrivals from Pretoria estimate She Boer casualties at a thousand men. half Of whom were killed. They also say the race course there is being prepared for a iaager in the event of a riege and the guns of the fort are trained it in ca.*; the prisoners attempt to escape, A 3Iaxim gan has been placed at the gate of the race course. From Kruger down every one favors fighting. They believe they win succeed in annexing all the beleaguered towns. The flag of the United Republic 5s now ready, and bears an orange cross. The Boers expect the war to last from four to six months, when they will pofewss all of South Africa. BEPCBLIC IS CRUMBLING. AJttBTCA A* A WOIW-D FOWKR.

It appears that a former girl in the employ of the Bills family mixed some arsenic with breakfast food to exterminate rodents in tbe house. It was put away, and reeently this girl left the employ of the f Amity. A new girl was engaged, and she prepared the breakfast for the family.

It is not definitely known just bow much this will be, but it is supposed that his estate will reach 825,000, and that tbe sum the college will receive will be about S8.000. Another Iowa KalHvay Project. DUBUQUE, Kov, 25. — The project for building a «eiv railroad from Dubuquc in a southwesterly direction is ISlrely to be realized soon.

Sioux Cj-rr, Nov. 20.—Though admittedly none too sure of his ground, District Judge Hutchinson overruled a motion to send seven injunction proceedings against local liquor dealers from the state to tbe federal court. Tbe application for the change was made by the liquor dealers on the plea that the Martin law regulating their business in the state is in violation of the United .States constitution, in that it provides for the trial of offenders on a penal charge and for the confiscation of their property without further formality than a simple order of the court on the application of any private citizen. The liquor dealers will appeal. MUchellville Ulrli Ileraoved From Jail. DES MOIXKS, Nov. 25.—All the girls from Mitchellvi He have been removed; from the Polk county jail. There will. be no indictments against them. The board of control wished the worst of them/indicted, but the grand jury did 1 not think this the wisest plan and the result was as stated above. It is thought there will be additional indictments returned against the men and boj's implicated in the rioting at the Industrial school. BREVITIES. Des Moines dispatch: Attorney General llemley has applied at Marshalltown for a receiver for the Marshalltown Accident Insurance Company. The company was only two years old and had 8331,000 insurance in force. The company was in poor condition and was about to consolidate with the Imperial accident of Des Moines. The state auditor objected to the plan of consolidation and under his directions the application for a receiver was made. Des Moines dispatch: David R. Kwing announced at the meeting of the board of directors of Drake University that he had determined to donate to the university a library bqild- ing, costing in the neighborhood of 545,000. Mr. Ewing is a member of the firm of Ewing & Jevvett, him ber dealers on West Locust street, has been a member of the directory board of the University for sonic time and has always manifested a liberal spiri t in his donations to the institution. At the same time other gifts amounting to 805,000 were announced, §35,000 being from Governor Drake. The 805,000 will be used to pay off the debts of the institution, which will then be clear of debt. George W. Randall of Qttumwa, shot and perhaps fatally injured Elmer Howard during a quarrel. The shooting occurred on Main street, the. trouble being over a woman. Randall MI (Tendered himself to the police.

Fifty tontj daily of ore are senjt to Milwaukee,' wlwis #njeUing worfes turn ojjt the Iron., Tuo ore is said to, be of A Now Abandoned bj Politicians and Arruy. . Xor. 25.—The news which the steamship Ifrutus brings from Dag- upan dispels all doubts that the so- called Filipino republic is crumbling like a bouse of cards. Aguinaldo, deserted, or being abandoned by the politicians and the army, which a fortnight ago was entrenched at Tar- lac and exercised a-de-facto government over nine-tenths of the people of Luzon, is a fugitive in tbe mountains, with small hope of re-establishing tbe machine. The army is scattered in the hills on both sides of the railroad and widely separated detachments are within the cordon which Generals Lawton and Wheaton have cemented. The ruling spirit of the cabinet, Buencamino, the secretary of state, is a prisoner in Manila—a white elephant on the hands of the authorities—and the small fry are tumbling over one another to get to Manila. Three provincial governors have arrived in Manila to request General Otis to install them in their old offices under the new regime. Dr. Luna, a brother of General Luna, and a prominent insurrectionist, bas arrived here and his friends and many others are applying to General Otis for permission to enjoy tbe luxuries of Manila after months of separation from civilisation. INSURGENTS FLEE. ijt. XOT. ST.—As a result of t1» United States request to the powers for assurances regarding- tbe maintenance of the ''open door" in China, the Associated Press is able to say that negotiations have been entered into, looking- to a more permanent and important international agreement than yet mooted. Though tbe greatest official reticence is observed at all the capitals regarding this secret movement, there is good ground for believing that the negotiations have reacbed a hopeful stage. According to reports current here, in consequence of Russia and France failing to reply satisfactorily to \Vasbington~s request, the United States decided to take up the Chinese question still more vigorously. The oo-operation of Great Britain to this end, it is asserted, was secured, and it is said on tbe initiative of tbe United States, efforts were set on foot to secure not only assurances to tbe United States, bnt a definite agreement bet-ween the European powers themselves. The Associated Press is informed on good authority there are fair chances of Great Britain, Ilussia, Germany and Japan, in conjunction •with the United States, becoming signatories to a treaty eliminating the spheres of political influence in China and determining their fiscal policy in that quarter of the globe, based on the "open doer"' principle. AGUIXALOO XOYT Vi HIDING. Tlielr Feint on the City of Imtu was a Failure. WASHINGTON, Nov. 27.—General Otis cables as follows: '•The insurgents made a feint on Imus last night. Three enlisted men were wounded. Their loss is two killed and one captured. They quickly withdrew when the additional troop's were sent from Manila today. The insurgents will be driven south. Ue- ports from Jsegros are encouraging. The chief insurgent leader in the north of the island bas surrendered volun- tarily.More planting is being done and more sugar mills are at work than at any time since the revolution against Spain began. Officers report the people apparent^' cheerful and hopeful and that the form of government in operation is well suited to their conditions and is working smoothly." TAYLOR WISH. Court of Appeals Decides the Contest In Hi« Favor. FiiAXKFoitT, Ky., Nov. 27.—The court of appeals clinched Taylor's right to the 1,197 Nelson county votes. The court, all tbe judges concurring, refused to dissolve the injunction as asked by Goebel's attorneys. The votes in controversy were certified for W. 1'. instead of W. S. Taylor, and tbe supervisors of the county ordered these votes counted f or'W.'S. Taylor. The order was affirmed. American Girl Kutertained an Emperor. LONOOX, November 27.—An American girl Friday entertained royalty. The Duchess of Ma'rlborough, who was Miss Consuolo Vanderbilt of New York, has reached the highest social pinnacle. The emperor of Germany, accompanied by the prince of Wales, the duke of Connauyht and Count von Eulenburg spent the day at Woodstock, and the day -,vas made the occasion of a holiday. IJoern Kald a Stud Farm, DuKJiAN, Nov. 23.—A dispatch from Mooi Hive:- says the telegraph line was cut near Highlands station. It adds the station is in tbe possession of a largo force of Uoers encamped near Mitchesong Cutting. The train bound to Estcourt bas returned. It got only a mile and a half northward of Highland. The Natal Stud Company's farm bas been raided and 300 blooded horses, valued at 814,000, captured. UOEU LOSS LARGE. It at Me at Lttdj'smltU Lasted for Ten Hours. LONDON, Nov. 31.—An Esteourt special says a report was received of a battle at Ladysmith November 15, lasting from daybreak till two o'clock; in tbe afternoon. Mauv Boers are said, to be killed and many taken prisoners. Tbe British, Joss is much less. Another battle }s reported, on tbe following day, Hie heaviest yet fought. The Boer dead are said to number hundreds The British Josses are comparatively General Otis Says Ills Government No Longer KxUts. WASHINGTON, Nov. 25.—General Otis summarizes the situation in Luzon in a dispatch to the war department, in which be says the insurgent government can no longer claim to exist, its troops and officials are scattered and Aguinaldo is in biding. The dispatch follows: MANILA. Nov. 24.—The claim to a government by the insurgents can be made no longer under any fiction. Its treasurer, secretary of interior and the president of its congress are in our bands. Its president and the remaining cabinet officers are in hiding, evidently in different central Luzon provinces. Its generals and troops are in small bands, scattered through these provinces, acting as bandits or the dispersed forces are playing the role of aminps with arms concealed. The indications are that Aguinaldo did not escape through the lines of Lawton or Wheaton. but fled westward from the Hayombong railway station. Telegraphic communication to Dagupan was established and will probably be to San Fabian to-day. By relaying nine miles of track with material at hand, the railway communication to that point will be re-established. The labor of the troops must attend to the maintenance. AHMED FEIUL IS DEFEATED. General Wliigate Inflicts a Loss of 2,500 Men. CAIBO, Nov. 24.—General Wingate, with an Egyptian force, moved from Fakikohi to attack the force, of Ahmed Fedil, reported to be at Drefissa, twenty-three miles from the river Nile, on the road to Gimeh. The sirdar, General Kitchener, telegraphed to Lord Cromer, the British minister, as follows: OMDUBMAN, Nov. 23.—Wingate found Dreflssa evacuated, pushed on to Abria- adil, four miles further, and found Fedil's forces encamped. They were forthwith engaged by the mounted troops under Mahon with four Maxims and two guns and tbe Jebadieb under Gorringe. The dervishes charged with all their old dash to within eighty yards of the guns. Wingate, with the infantry, arrived in time to support Mahon and cleared the whole camp. The dervishes bolted through the bush, pursued by the mounted troops. AVingate estimates Fedil's force at 2,600 men, of whom 400 were killed. BAD OUTBREAK OF SMALLPOX. Five Hundred Cases Out of a Population of I,8OO in Dniontown. BOWLING GUEKN, Ky., Nov. 20.—Dr] McCormack, secretary of the state board of health has made the following statement: "In a population of 1,800 there are fully 500 cases in various stages of smallpox at Uniontown. There are many cases in the adjacent county. The disease has been conveyed from Uniontown to Crittenden, Hopkins, Muhlenburg and Henderson counties. The danger to that section of tbe state is great. "The state board of health has placed the town in absolute quarantine. Authorities have promised co-operation. The entire state is urged to enforce general vaccination. Our limited appropriation, the smallest in the union, is exhausted long since, and our 1 work is being conducted on personal credit." TO SEND ." »R MAINE DEAD, War Ship Will Bring Homo 104 Dead From Havana Cemetery. WASHINGTON, Nov. 24.—The navy de-- partment will send a ship of war to Havana before February to bring home the bodies of 104 sailors of the Maine now buried in Colon cemetery. The bodies will lie brought to Washington and buried in Arlington National cemetery with suitable honors. WOOD CALLED TO WASHINGTON. military Governor of Santiago Province Asked to Confer With Officials. SANTIAGO, Cuba, Nov. 35.—In accordance with a cable order to report in Washington at th,e first opportunity, Qeneral Wood, military governor of this province, accompanied by Lieutenant Brooks, bas started for New York by the transport MePherson. He says he 4oes not know why he has been summoned, but suggests as probable a conference based on his recent suggestion tnat tbe American trac-ps should be withdrawn and'rsplajed kp Cuban tvoap§, officere4 by &IO BATTLE* Brttteb Claim to Have Won, Bat «t Terrible Cost. 3f or. 24L — The secretary o! war has received tbe following- dispatch through General Forestier-Wal* ker, from General Mcthuen dated Bel- roont- ^November 24: Attacked the enemy at daybreak this morning. He was in a strong position. Three bridges were carried in succession, tbe last attacked being prepared by rfurapneL The infantry bebaved splendidly and received support from tbe naval brigade and artill- erv.

Then follows the list of killed, wounfled and missing, showing that the loss on the British side was very heavy and thai tthe officers especially suffered. Losnox. Nov. C4. — Before anxiety as to the situation in Natal has been relieved, there comes. news of a greal .battle at Uelmont. This has happened sooner than was expected. Only the official account is yet to hand, bnt so far as can be gathered, the fighting appears to have been almost a repetition of the battle of Elandslaagte. A dispatch of the previous day estimated that the Boers in that vicinity numbered 2.000 and that they had five guns, and judging from the absence of any statement to the contrary in the official report, it is believed that the British were slightly superior in numbers to the enemy. Tbe Uoers had chosen a position with their customary skill, and were strongly entrenched. The British were obliged to carry three ridges in succession. Apparently the guards bore the brunt in carrying the last ridge by a bayonet charge, after 'its defenders bad been shaken with shrapncL Nothing is said as to whether the positions so gained were held, and tbe destruction of the ammunition seems to indicate that the contrary was the case. While General Methuen can be congratulated on a brilliant victory, it is again at the cost of a heavv loss of officers and men. BRITISH LOSS 2O3. Result of the Big Battle Fonght at Uelmont. CAPETOWN. Nov. 25.—From the details which have reached here of Gen. Mathuen's fight with the Boers it appears that the Boers from Fincham's farm shelled the advance of the body of the British on Wednesday, Nov. 22, and tbe British artillery pushed forward and shelled the hill, which the .British subsequently occupied, capturing the two guns. The Boer casualties were 30 men killed and wounded. The Boer main column left Fincham's farm during the afternoon and camped five miles ahead. At daybreak on Thursday the Boers fired from the hills a thousand yards distant on the British advance force. Other troops then, pushed up and the engagement became general. The British artillery silenced the Boer guns. Then two batallions of the Grenadier Guards and the Northumberland regiment stormed the heights at the point of the bayonet. The entire position was carried by S o'clock. The cavalry, consisting of the Lancers.. and mounted infantry pursued the flying Boers. The Boers were estimated at 3.500 men and their loss is unknown. The British loss in killed, wounded and missing aggregates 205. BRITISH EXASPERATED. Fresh Portions of Natal Being Overran By the Boers. LONDON, Nov. 24.—The fact that tbe fresh portions of Natal are being overrun daily by the Boers is producing exasperation in that colony and intense humiliation in Great Britain, where the idea of a possible extensive invasion of British' soil was continuously denounced in early stages of the war. -In the meanwhile from the dispatches which arc arriving- from the front it is difficult to form an opinion of the true situation. The Boer invaders are occasioning constant surprise. They have already cut off two posts of Ladysmith's relieving force from their base of supplies and with great rapidity are advancing on Peitermaritzburg with howitzer and other artillery. General Clery's situation it would appear must be becoming intolerable. The fighting may be expected at any time, as it is pointed out the general must clear his line of communication in, order to coniolete the concentration of the relieving forces. Civil War In New Guinea. LONDON, Nov. 21.— A dispatch to tbe Daily Mail from Sydney, N. S, AY., says that a disastrous civil war has broken out in the British possessions of New Guinea, eleven villages having been obliterated, with a heavy slaughter of the inhabj,ta.ut.s^ PLAGUE.

STATE COSTKOL OF POLICE Sovernor Roosevelt's Plan to C llrp Municipal I'owers. NEW YOHK. Nov. 24.—Governor Eoosevelt and Senator T. C. Plait had a conference upon the proposed constabulary bill by which control of the police in cities of the first and second classes is to be vested in a commission appointed by the governor. After the conference, it was reported that the governor had agreed to sign the measure if it were passed by the legigisla- ture by a good majority. Should the proposed bill become a law it would take from the municipal authorities and give to the state government full control of the police forces of New York ci(y. Buffalo.

After a sharp fight he took the position. The khalifa, who was snnond- ed by a body guard of Emirs, was killed and all the. principal Emirs were killed or captured except Ostnan Digna, who escaped. The dervishes wer* utterly defeated and their whole camp taken and a thousand surrendered. A large number of women, children and cattle also fell into the hands of the Anglo-Egyptian force." BOBAItT REMAINS VIEWED. Lay In Body of the Viee-President State. NEW YOKK, Nov. 25.—The scenes at Carroll Hall, Patterso... >f. J., yesterday, when the remains ->f Vice-President Hobart were lying in state and the public was given an opportunity to view them, were exciting and pathetic. Long before 2 o'clock, the hour announced for the opening of the doors of the Hobart home to the public, the crowd commenced to assemble, and when the first rush toward the main entrance began, fully 5,000 persons ivere crowded into Ellison and Carroll streets. Lines were formed by a squad of policemen, but the force was entirely too small to maintain the semblance of order. It is estimated that 13,00» persons viewed the remains. Women were largely in the majority. Iron Workers. Strike. CHICAGO, Nov. 24.—Two hundred union structural iron workers on tha new Northwestern elevated road struck in response to orders issued by officers of the union, and the construction in consequence is completely at a standstill.
