The Des Moines Summer School begins its fifth annual session July 0. Prof. C. W. Martindale is the conductor. The buildings at the mine at Dean, the operation of which Avas stopped by strikers, were burned later. The fire is supposed to have been of incendiary frrank Baitd and Of-a Seats, ol Cr6&- ton, on pleading gtiilty to the charge brought against them in the federal court at toes Moines, that of counterfeiting, were sentenced to two and one- half years "and fifteen months respectively by Judge Woolson. The decision of the supreme court affirming the decision of the lower court in the case of Jennie Campbell vs. the Pullman Palace Car Company, has been filed at Sioux City. Miss Campbell secured a verdict for $11,000 for an assault made on her by the porter in one of the Pullman company's cars. Mrs. Betsey Smith, Avho recently poisoned her husband at Des Moines, has been indicted tAvice. The last indictment charges her Avith the attempt- origin. The loAva, \Veathcr and Crop Bulletin states that corn is generally in a good condition, but that all other crops are suffering from the extreme dry weather. _^_ *~George~Bai : ne"s7the Des Moines drug gist Avho Avas convicted of purchasing stolen stamps, Avas sentenced to four years at Fort Madison and to pay a fine of $1,800. It is announced that VV. IT. Johnson county auditor of Muscatine county, has disappeared and that he is short in his accounts as auditor fully $4,000, besides owing numerous private debts. Constable Scofield arrested Will Kern. Avho travels for the Crystal Flour Mills, of Council Bluffs, on a charge of seduction, the information being filed • by Miss Jennie Bartlett, daughter of J. W. Bartlett, a prominent merchant and Citizen of Creston. Kern says he is innocent and that it is a blackmail scheme to extort money from him. Col. If. Wheeler, president, andC. H.

They for special railroad etl killing of her husband two years a go by shooting him through the temple. Her nephews swear that one of them arrived in the room before the ,moke had left the pistol and that she .ried to hire the other to commit the Time.. There is more than a prospect Jor her neck to stretch, although the ittorneys say it will be next to impossible to find twelve men who Avill hang i woman. It now looks if the murderers of Conductor Ridpath will get off with light sentences if convicted at all. in ease these four persons are not hung the court it is said there is little doubt but what the railroad men will take the matter in their own hands and do the work of the court for it. Mrs. J. B. Hoot, who eloped from reston with her husband's hired man, was brought to that city in company with Scott, the man she eloped with. A curious crowd assembled at the depot to witness the meeting be tween Root and his young wife, but they were deprived of seeing a reconciliation, which they expected, for it did not occur until the party reached Justice J. 1$. Kirche's office. Then the little truant bride of a few weeks threw her arms about the neck of her aged husband and begged his forgiveness. The husband was very reluctant in granting the request made Returns from Oregon state that Jiidge Lord, rep., has been elected governor by a plurality of 15,000 and it is believed the republicans will control both branches of the legislature. Dispatches from Portland. Ore M and Vancouver, B. C., are to the effect that that region is being devastated by extraordinary floods. The loss occasioned by the rise in the Frazef river Avill exceed $4.000,000. The of Prendergast, the assassin of Mayor Harrison, Avill not be tried until fall. The case comes up June 11. but will be continued until the September term of court to alloAv Judge Chet]ain to preside, as he Avill be engaged Avith civil causes until that time. The treasury statement issued recently shows the government expenditures for eleven months of the fiscal year Avere $340,000,000, while the receipts Avere only $2(58,000,000, making a deficit of $72,000,000. It is said the 'deficit for the tAvelve months Avill reach $78,000,000. President Cleveland has appointed II. H. Trimble to be pension agent at Des Moines and A. C.

During- the twenty-four hours ending this morning the flood gained one inch. Tlie worst has probably been experienced, for reports state that the river is rapidly receding* At Lytton it was said that the river fell twenty-seven inches yesterday* News has been received here Of an appalling landslide which occurred in the vicinity of Ashcfoft on Saturday last. A tract of 100 acres of land was carried into the river.

Lytton Avere arranging rates, etc. Dr. Moore, E. A. Oirinrwood, W. H Kattleson and O. J. Felton have or ganized themselves into a syndicate for the purpose of pushing the search for the meteoric stone that fell recently on the farm of J. J. Wozobo, three and a half miles east of Oxford .Junction. A crib has been sunk tAventy-six feet, the last fourteen being in Avater and quick sand. It is believed that the stone has been struck at a distance of about eight feet below the present level of the excavation. A catastrophe occurred at AYebster City Avhich filled the entire community Avith a thrill of horror. William Foral, a harnessrnaker Avho Avas placed in the city calaboose for being drunk and disorderly, set fire to the building at an early morning hour, and Avas burned to a 'crisp before the door could be broken open and the unfortune man taken out. Foral had been a slave to drink and had taken the Keeley cure twice, but the treatment failed to be effectual. When drunk he Avas like a, Avild man and feared by everyone. UnknoAvn toughs at Ames, finding a AvindoAV in the rear of BosAvorth's drug ' store Avith only a. pane of glass to break, broke it and the eighth commandment at the same time. As a result of their labors $5 or $0 in money and a bottle of arsenic (Avith Avhich latter the Lord only knoAvs Avhat ^they intend doing) and perhaps a few cigars were taken. Some one supposed to belong to the same gang passed through the coach of one of the night passenger trains Avhile it Avas standing at the station and finding a passenger asleep in his seat stole the hat off his head. No arrests have been made. Mrs. Lou M. Wheeler, of Toledo, is in Galena, Ills., in connection Avith the search for the heirs of the estate of Nicholas Lute, a California millionaire, formerly a poor resident of Galena, Lute died last November, leaving his wealth to a half sister and to his daughter, neither of Avhom he had heard from' since he left Galena in .1854. The half sister was found several months ago in South Dakota in straightened circumstances. Mrs. Wheeler, it is believed, is the missing daughter, Avho Avas brought up in the family of an uncle, with whom her father left her forty years ago. Steps have been taken to secure her share of the fortune. A little spark from a NorthAvestern engine came near doing a great deal of damage at the Union Driving Park, at Council Bluffs, while the races were in progress. It ignited the grass between the track and the fence, and before any one noticed the flames they had teen communicated to the fence, Avhich •was soon on fire in a dozen different places. Only a hundred yards or so aAvay Avere the north stalls, and the main effort of the impromptu bucket "brigade Avas to keep them froin catching^fire. The fence Avas broken cloAvn for a distance of aboiit fifty yards, and the fire was finally extinguished.

Of all the many enterprises that have their headquarters in loAva, none have been a greater success than the Des Moines Life A ssociation. In a very feAV years they have grown from a small concern to a very strong and vigorous company. It is indeed the marvel in insurance circles. The envy with Avhich the old line companies look upon it is proof conclusive that it is very much in their Avay. The Des Moines Life has out distanced all other companies doing business in loAva f or the last five years. During the month of May they Avrote $555,000 of insurance, a gain of 87 per cent over May of 1893. No other company can make this showing. Its plan is very simple and popular. They Avrite a joint policy on a man and Avife if desired. Their rates are reasonable and just; only about half the rates of- -old line companies. $175,000 reserve to protect policy holders. All surplus paid back every tenth year. Some good territory for agents to be had. Write to C. E. RAAVSON, President and General Manager, Des Moines, loAva. ' Fire visited Ottuimva a feAV days ago and left desolation, death and destruction in its wake. It started in a cooper shop belonging to Jerry Seymour, which has been on fire just a half dozen times before. A locomotive passing cast a spark which started a small blaze in a bunch of shavings near the building. The day Avas intensely hot and the Avind Avas bloAving a gale. It Avas fully a block to the next building of any size, but betAveen the tAvo were a number of trees and outhouses, Avhich Avere consumed by the flames. When the fire reached the next building it started before the gale, roaring ind licking up everything in its path. The fire department apparatus Avas useless. In less than tAvo hours 8300,000 Avorth of property, including thirteen business buildings with eighteen residences, was a mass of ashes and charred debris. A last heroic effort was made by 300 men from the packing-house and the "Q" round-house, and the flames Avere soon under control. During the progress of the fire injuries from falling timbers and persons succumbing to the heat and smoke became so frequent that the physicians Avho Avere on the ground improvised a hospital and adi*unistered aid to the unfortunates. There Avere' about tAventy victims to the heat and smoke, among which one, perhaps tAvo, Avill die. Several explosions occurred, believed' to be at the burning drug stores, and to add to the terror a trolley wire burned off and fell, knocking doAvn a horse and badly burning u fireman named Rouse. The Dupuqwe .& Wisconsin Bridge Company met at Pubuque and elected the folloAving officers: President, J. A, Rhpmberg; vice-president, J. J. Punn; secretary, C. H, Meyer; treasurer, Paul Traut. It is expected that work on the new bridge will begin soon. James Wilson, the forger Avhp cashed a raised draft for 91,600 on the Valley National Bank a,t Pes Moines Indianapolis Bank Wrecker Receives the Sentence of the Court. INDIANAPOLIS, Ind., June 9 —Theodore P. Haughey, president of the defunct Indianapolis National bank, was yesterday sentenced to six years in the penitentiary for 'his part in the Avrecking of that institution. Mr. Haughey appeared in court with his attorneys at 9 o'clock to receive his sentence. • Judge Baker expressed deep regret in pronouncing sentence, saying it Avas an unpleasant duty to sentence a man that had so long been respected for his uprightness and integrity. After pronouncing sentence Judge Baker shook Mr. 'Haughey's hand. Mr. Haughey is OS years of age. Marshal Hawkins started Avith his prisoner for Michigan City. . Coal Famine at Falrburyi 111. FAIKBURV, 111., June 8.—A total famine in this section is now at its height and will remain so as long as Decisive Action at St. Louis. St. Louis, Mo., June 9.--The Southwestern Traffic association gave final consideration yesterday to the question of rates on grain and grain products and the reconsignment of these commodities at Missouri river points. establishing the folloAv- ing rates to Texas points: Flour, 40 to 45 cents per 100 pounds, wheat, 35 to 40 cents per 100 pounds; corn and oats, 33 to i7 cents per 100 pounds. It was further provided that the rate of 40 cents on flour, of 35 cents on wheat and rf3 on corn and oats may be applied from Denver and intermediate points on direct lines in Colorado and Kansas to points in Texas on the Fort Worth & Denver City, Chicago, Rock Island and Texas & Gulf, Colorado & Santa Fe main line, Fort Wortn & North. PLATTE BIVER RISING. the"miners refrain from working. All the tile factories have been compelled to suspend for want of fuel and the number of families completely out of coal is gro\ving larger every day. The Wabash railroad is only running those trains Avhich they are bound to run and these engines are fired Avith slack, < which heretofore was used for ballasting. The road not being able to run their full schedule of trains, the list of employes has been reduced to all branches. __ DENVER BANK CLOSED. One of the Oldest In No Great Damage So Far but There Is Great Apprehension. OMAHA, Neb., June 0.—The Platte river is rapidly rising, but no great damage.has yet been jdone, though there is much apprehension. The wall of Avater five feet in. height reported last nierht to be approaching Kearney has not yet materialized, though • the river has risen several inches. The flood was reported sixty miles to the north and should have appeared at Kearney this morning. As the river is much broader for miles south, it is believed that it has gradually extended itself. The large canal constructed at an immense cost by the Kearney cotton mill and kindred industries it is thought Avill not stand a much greater rise. Two Miner* SUot HUNTINGTON, W. Va., June i.—Fighting is in progress German National, the City, Falls to Open Its Doors. . DKNVEB, Colo., June 9.— The German National bank did not open its doors yesterday. Cashier Kuhnmiller says that the institution is compelled to;; go out of business. A statement Avill be made later .in the day.

The Avaters also swept aAvay the iron bridge at Ashcroft and the Canadian Pacific railroad bridge near Spencer's station. The /water tore doAvn the mountain gorges with terrible velocity, and sent the river leaping over its banks in a boiling and seething current. This great volume of water is yet to be felt in the lower Frazer valley, which it will not reach for another day. As further details of the cloudburst are received the earlier reports of receding waters at Lytton and other poiqts of the river are discredited. However, it is not believed the lower river Avill rise much higher. Men Avho returned last night from upper river points bring sad stories of death, devastation and desolation. Settlers may be seen at every station floating on huge rafts made out of the wrecks of farm buildings, on which they have their families and their cattle. The government steamers _ are rescuing these as rapidly as possible. One of these rafts Avas relieved of its burden by the steamer.Gladys to-day. On the raft were a man and Avife and two children, one of them an infant, the other 3}^ years old. The horses and cattle constantly threatened to overturn the craft, for they Avere moving from sido to side in their efforts to secure food. But there was none for the animals, and what little there was for the human beings was.nearly exhausted Avhen the rescue was made. The younger child may die of exposure. Some idea of the horrors may be obtained Avhen it is stated that there are thousands of families similarly situated. A newspaper correspondent Avho returned this morning from a trip above Port Haney on a rescue steamer reports a terrible state of affairs in the upper river. Herds of half-starved cattle tied on rafts, with no one to guide the journey qf the insecure craft, were seen. Two houses tied to swaying rafts glided by. Families were at the doors with excited faces, but apparently safe. A red handkerchief Avas waved. , After many other exciting scenes the steamer sailed over the Central Pacific . , strsngthefted and possess plengr of ammunition.
