m® m wins -.f^jfg ftfttW, t» Btff Republfauit MttfON gf iftft, loWA The republicans of tlie Seventh c'on- 'gressiona.1 district met at Des Moines ^and renominated Congressman John A. ,T, Hull. The republicans of the Third district [•unanimously renominated- Congressman D. B. Henderson at their conven* tion at Waterloo. * Minnie Gallocher. aged 11, daughter of a brick manufacturer of loWa City* was kicked in the face by a horse, her jaw being broken and front teeth knocked out. The feeding yards of the Chicago & Northwestern railway at Boone burned* The loss will reach $30,000. The yards will probably not be rebuilt, as the demand for feeding in transit is small since the use of patent stock cars. Thomas S. Wright of Chicago, son of Judge, G. G. Wright of Des Moines, and general counsel of the Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific railway, was prostrated in Nexv York on the 30th. He was carried to a hospital, where he died in a short time. Michael Burke, a hard character, was badly gashed in the left side and arm with a razor by Henry Lincoln, colored, at Iowa City. Burke was drunk and went into Lincoln's dooryard and insulted him. Sympathy is entirely with the negro. He was arrested. Burke will recover. Col. .las. H. Guest received official advices from Adjutant General Prime to the effect that the Second regiment camp will be held in Burlington August 20 to 31 inclusive. This puts an end to the long controversy about camp location which nearly disrupted the local military company. i While a pal engaged the proprietor of a furniture store in Nashua in conversation, Nick Porter of Charles City went through the safe. He only obtained !$3, having missed a package of $500 that was in the same drawer under a book. He was arrested and gave bail for his appearance in court. ! Frank McTvenx.ie. a camp follower of the Wallace show, held to the Buchanan county grand jury for burglary, broke jail at Independence by sawing through three iron bars. Hurley and Moran, two local toughs out on bail, are charged with complicity and arrested. McKensde is not located. ' Another destructive fire visited Ottumwa recently and wiped out the Ot tumwa Brick and Construction plant, one of ,thc largest paving and pressed brick plants in the state. Besides the valuable machinery, a large mimber of brick not yet finished were destroyed. The loss is $30,000, with $14,000 insurance. The company will rebuild. . The story circulated in the newspapers that a disagreement exists between the department at Washington and the Iowa Iron Works of Dubuque regarding the torpedo boat Ericsson is unqualifiedly denied by the siiperin- tendent of the works and Captain Ball, chief engineer, who is in charge of the construction of the Wm. Windom. Both gentlemen say the Ericsson will exceed the expectations. The authorities received word from Omaha of the arrest of a Des Moines man there on whose person were found the $1,000 worth of diamonds stolen recently from the Beidenkoph home in the latter city. The dispatch said that O'Callahan had been arrested with diamonds in his possession, and as he is known to have left Des Moines the day after the robbery it is supposed he is the guilty party. The prospects for a large attendance at Highland Park Normal College, Des Moines, Iowa, next year are very flattering. President Longwell says that the College has never been in better shape for good solid, substantial work than it Avill be at the opening of the fall term, September 4. We are glad to give this news to our readers as, Highland Park Normal College is imdcmbtedly one of the greatest institutions of learning in the west. L. Folsom, a pioneer of Osceola county, is dead. He and his wife's brother, 3. B. Lent, were showing Lent's boy the action of a repeating rifle. Lent worked the gun several times, when a cartridge was discharged, striking Folsom in the arm and cutting an artery. He had lost his other arm by blood poisoning 1 from it being lacerated by barb wive. A doctor was called, who dressed the wound and pronounced the case not critical. Lent is a union veteran, Avho for six years was county sheriff and for four years county treasurer. It is a sad occurrence, and all that can be said in excuse of the accident is that all parties thought the magazine was empty, In a fight at De Witt John Bush shot George Vance's right arm off at the (shoulder and fatally wounded him. Both <vere attaches of HOWW & Gushing's circus. Bush made his escape. The boy who was found at Waterloo yecently and identified by 1 the parents pf tyhe lost Ks,y Elliott tit Marengp, as theirs, is now claimed by another fain- jly. The other child was stolen from Independence a few weeks _agq and ^hose who claim the boy as theirs have t & photograph which, very m.uch yes bj^s the child.

J'udge Trimble of Kert- kuk declined the place. Mrs. Mary A. Woodbfidge, corresponding secretary of the World's "Woman's ChristMn;Temperanc6 Union, has been engaged to speak on the State Fair Grounds on Woman's Day, Tuesday, September 4, She will also give an address in the city on the evening of the same day. ' Oeo. W. Dees, a farmer living'eight miles west of .Burlingtoti, wos burned to death in his house. He was 87 years of age and weighed 300 pounds and had been confined to his bed. In some way the house took fire at midnight, and when discovered the flames Were all around Dees' bed. p-ttis son-in-law. Scott Derniplt, attempted to assist him out of the hou.se. but the sick man was unable to walk. Default partly carried and dragged him as far as the door, when the flames swept upon them and he was compelled to abandon the invalid to his fate. The flames 'Soon reduced the form to a crisp in full view of the horrified spectators. His aged wife was battly burned, and the entire family were left with almost nothing to cover tltem. As J. E. Berkey and Charlie Col burn of West Union were starting to drive down the Eldorado hill, a, rocky hill half a mile long, one ot the tugs unhitched and Charlie (,'olbiirn jumped out to hook it. Just then the wagon moved ahead enough to strike one of the horses and they sprang forward. Half way down the hill the wagon upset IJerkey's foot was caught in the wheel and he was dragged thereby. He managed to catch hold of the axle and kept his head from being pounded to jelly; but his body was literally skinned and in some places the flesh fairy scraped off. At the bottom of the hill the team dashed into another rig and tore off. the rear wheels, but the occupant was uninjured. Berkey was picked up for dead, but it is probable he will recover. SeveraUpersofis 'have beeft arrested at Colorado Springs for complicity in the outrage fec'ently perpfetrlated on Adjuta'nt General Tarsnejr, and it is said evidence of guilt is at hand. The president has appointed as & commission to investigate the Railway Union strike. John D". Kernan bf New York and Nicholas fe. Worthihgtbn of Peoria. til., who will act with Labor Commissioner Carroll D. Wright. No formal declaration r>f wai 4 has as yet been made by eithet- China or Japart, but hostilities have been begun and several contests have resulted favorably to the Japs. The king of Corea, which country has been the bone of contention, is now a Japanese prisoner. Well informed statesmen predict that this is the beginning of War Which will involve all Europe. Russia will probably take the first step aiid others will, quickly follow. Reports from Northern Wisconsin are to the effect that thousands of acres are being devastated by forest fires. The extreme drouth makes the matter very serioits. ; Phillips, a manufacturing town of 3.000 people, is? almost totally destroyed, only a few buildings remaining. Shore's Crossing is wiped out. The Oniaha railroad lias suffered great loss. Mason has destroyed. The White River Lumber Company mill burned with 40.000.000 feet of lumber. Some weeks ago two young crooks were arrested at Des Moines for stealing $110 worth' of diamonds from an east side jeweler, substituting paste for gcmiine stones when he set the tray in front of them. They returned the diamonds and in consideration of their g'etting out of town were allowed to go. Presently they came back and began their former tactics of confidencing greenhorns, one of them "steering" the "suckers" into a joint kept by a woman on Court avenue. By drugged liquor, marked cards, etc., they managed to rob a fellow from Ames of a little money at week ag - o and one of the couple, a fellow named Keyes, was arrested. His trial was set but the prosecuting witness failed to appear. The marshal says he will push the diamond case unless they get out of town. Iowa was visited by a very destructive and blighting hot wind on the 30th, the kind of a hot wind Kansas covints on every so often but which is new to Iowa. Everywhere in the state the thermometer registered over 100 and in places in the slmde where the wind beat upon the thermometer it registered 110 degrees. Reports from Kansas and Nebraska say the wind did incalculable damage to the corn crop. Director Sago, of the Iowa Weather and Crop Service, says that it is only a conservative estimate, to say that this hot wind has cost the state $10.000,000 or one- tenth of the crops total value. Mr. Sage thinks the farmers of the state have made a mistake in letting go all of their corn, or nearly so. There is but fifteen per cent of last year's crop now in the state. He thinks corn is going to be 75 c.-.nts a bushel this winter. The Perry electric light and waterworks power house situated in the western portion of the town was completely blown to pieces by the explosion of its boiler, fatally injuring Mr. Henry Hoak, manager of the electric light plant, and the only occupant of the building at the time of the accident, and slightly bruising one Joe Blougher, who was driving along the street nearly one block distant. The concussion caused by the accident was felt in all parts of the town and in the immediate vicinity it was so great that the occupants ran from the buildings thinking they were falling on their heads. The loss of the house and plant is complete, as it was simply blown to atoms—the boiler being blown fully twenty yards away, and pieces of the iron work were carried for blocks in the vicinity. The loss to the company and to the city will reach in the neighborhood of $30,000, as the entire plant is a complete loss, It leaves the city without water and light, and should there be a fire of any consequence the city would be at the mercy of the flames. Mr. Hoak was a resident of Manson, Iowa, where the same company operates another plant. He is about 40 years of age and married, but leaves no children. President Cleveland lias appointed Edward H, Hunter, member of the state central committee from the Seventh district, to be postmaster at Des Moines. Colonel Eiboeck of the Iowa Staats Aneieger was his opponent and the contest WRS a bitter one. Deputy Sheriff Lenhart arrested George Gadd^rd, who is wanted •• fpr counterfeiting fey the United States Authorities, at, Oreston. GoddarA is supposed to have been connected svith the counterfeiting gang which. WRS captured in that City recently, He was teken to Cpujjcil Bluffs to answer b.e|ojre th.e f$&sy%l court. The republicans of Illinois met in state convention at Springfield and. by a vote of 1.01!) to .'11/5. flee] a red against following the example, set l\v the democrats and nominating' a candidate for United States senator. Fire at Washington, D. C.. started in the stables of the Knox Transfer company. a large four story brick building, and spread to a storage warehouKe adjoining them, to the Adams Express stables and thence to eight two-story frame houses on the north and other buildings, consuming an entire block before being brought under control. Many other houses in the neighborhood took fire and were saved witli difficulty. Over two hundred heavy draft horses on the second floor of the Knox building were burned to death. One hundred and fifty horses in the Adams Express stables were saved. The loss aggregates a quarter of a million dollars. Five firemen were crushed under falling walls. Two were rescued but the. others lost their life. Advices from London are to the effect that the polar expedition headed by Walter Wellman. the well -known newspaper correspondent, has been lost. A dispatch from Nagasaki, Japan. says a detachment of Corea.n troops, at the instigation of the Chinese residents, attacked 'the Japanese garrison and were defeated. A Ja.panese cruiser and transport engaged in the fight and the cruiser sank the transport. "K. of I* Executive Hoard. O.MAIIA, July 38.— The national executive board of the Knights of Labor- spent to-day going over the reports of state organizers. A great many local assemblies have lapsed in the past year and the state organizers were ordered to report on the cause and whether reorganizations could not be effected. The majority of the organizers, it is reported, have recommended the formation of new assemblies in preference to attempting to revivify the old ones. BijT Fire Loss nt Boone, Iowa. BOONK, Iowa, July SS.— Fire in the Chicago and Northwestern stockyards in this city yesterday caused .a loss of between $1">,000 and $'VO,000, The stock-yards covered about five acres. They were empty of cattle and hogs. A large stock of feed was burned. The fire is supposed to have been set by tramps sleeping in the sheds. __ Victoria to See Vigilant Win. Co WES, Isle of Wight, July 28.— It is announced that Queen Victoria will witness the private match race for a cup valued at $500 between the Vigilant and the Britannia, which is to be sailed Aug. 4. The prince of Wales- and the duke of York will be on board the Britannia during this race. The course will be chosen by the officers of the Royal Yacht squadron. Uterary Notes. Richard Harding Davis returns to New York again in his latest bit of fiction, "The Editor's Story," printed in the August Harper's. New York is tlje scene of some of Mr. Davis's very best tales, and "The Editor's Story" is told with the author's usual skill about scenes in which for some years he has been a conspicuous figure. A characteristic dialect poem by James Whiteomh Riley will appear jn the August number of the Century. It is called "Home Ag'in," and is a father's delighted greeting 10 nib only child, a daughter just returned from boarding school. As with imich that Mr. Riley has written, a touch of pa» thos is blendid with rustic humor. "Ministers of Grace," a novel by Kya Wilder McGlasson, author of "An, Earthly P&ragon," "Diana's Livery," etc., will be published m early nmn* bers of Harper's Weekly, \$ will be jjr lustrated. by Carleton, ap4 the entire novel will be contained in two issues of the Weekly, County awfl garden-party toilettes, designed by the leading m,q4js.te oj Paris, wiU appear in Harper's f rom week to we,efe during July yond. ftje Preains of esapi^ new eeria} s,tQryr to fee of July S8. vofttiott of th'te Union has been called to in this city tie*t Thursday, Aug. 2, to consider the strike feituation.

The approaches to the room were well gtiafded So that no unauthorized person could approach. Vice-President Howard appeared outside several times during the meeting, but all he had to say was that weighty matters were being considered. At J3 o'dlock Mr. Debs and his associates appeared on their Way to Uhlich'S hall, where an American Railway Union meeting was in progress. "A delegate; convention has been called for Thursday, Aug. 3," said President Debs to a group of neWspaper-lnen. ''This convention will be made up of a representative from unions at each point affected by the strike. Dele* gates will not come from all the been entirely unions, but only from the points involved. The representatives at this convention will come with absolute power to act. The unions will hold meetings at the various places and by vote instruct their delegates before they come to Chicaaro.'' arice," Walter be the leading LYMAN TRUMBULL DECLINES.

OMAHA, July 38.—The general executive board of the Knights of Labor to-day completed arrangements for canvassing Nebraska in the interest of the populist party. State Workman D'Allemand was sent out to confer with the populist central committee and fix dates for twenty- four rallies during the fall campaign. The general secretary was instructed to carefully prepare a list of all congressmen who have opposed the demands of the Knights of Labor, and extra efforts will be made to defeat them. Copies of this list were ordered sent to all local assemblies of the United States. Pass Many Interstate Measures. WASHINGTON, July 2s.—Yesterday's proceedings in the house were dull in the extreme, and one by one the members left their desks until by' 3:30 o'clock there were not half a hundred members in the chamber.

A resolution was adopted unanimously that hereafter selection of permanent chairman bif let k without any recommendation or suggestion of the state central committee to the state convention. Senator Harsh then addressed the convention briefly. Hon. A. B. Cummins, chairman of tho the committee on resolutions, reported as follows: The republican party comes again before the people of Iowa with every promise performed and every prophecy fulfilled. The history of the past year has again demonstrated tho unfitness and'incompe- tency of tho democratic party to administer the affairs of the nation, and has again vindicated the eternal truth of republican principles. From the universal disaster that has accompanied democratic supremacy we turn with confident hope to the sacred duty of restoring peace to a distracted and disordered country. We again declare for a system of pro • tective duties so adjusted that every American resourcft can be developed by American labor, receiving American' wages, 1 and we insist upon a tariff that will accomplish these ends. We havo but to mention the disastrous results which have followed the mere men- nee of free trade as conclusive evidence of the wisdom of the republican policy in the past upon this subject. We adhere to the declaration of the national republican party in 189a upon its monetary policy. We reaffirm our, belief that >;'the interests of the country, its farmers and working men, demand that every dollar, paper ,or r coin, issued by the government, shall be as good as any other dollar." We favor the largest possible use of silver as money, that is consistent -with the permanent maintenance of equal values of all dollars in 'circulation. We do not want monometallism, either of gold or of silver, and we pledge ourselves to continue to work for bimetallism, to be brought about by nil fit means within the power of tlie government.. The welfare of the laborer aud the maintenance of the dignity of labor havo been the constant care of the republican party from its birth. Its whole history is an effort to secure to tho wage worker his jusc share of the fruits of toil; and it now re- uews its pledge to detent! the working man not only against the assaults of foreign competition but against the attacks ot domestic avarice. Resolved, That the honest and industrious immigrant who comes to our lancl with the intent to become m good faith an American citizen, is always welcome. None other should be permitted to come. We favor the amendment and more stringent enforcement ot the immigration laws so as to exclude criminal, pauper and all other undesirable classes whose presence cends to degrade American labor, and incite disorder. The republican party, ever mindful of the patriotic services and sacrifices of the veteran soldiers of the republic, reaffirms its position in favor of liberality to the nation's defenders, We favor the granting of pensions to all honorably discharged union soldiers and sailors M'hose disabilities or necessities justly entitle them thereto. Tfee resolutions were adopted unanimously without discussion, W. M. McFarland was renominatod for secretary of state by acclamation, as wag also C. G. McCarthy for auditor. For treasurer. AV", AV, Morrow of Uniop, John Herriott of Gutht'ie awl D, B .Davidson of Boono were named, Mr. Herriott was nominated on the fourth ballot, Judge Charles T.

He assailed the president and said that he and Carlisle were consulted at every step in the framing of the senate bill and that Cleveland had sanctioned all that was done. Now, he said. Cleveland had attempted to gibbet the senate before the eyes ot the country. Gorman .declared that he aud his colleagues had -'fought for tariff reform when cowards in high places would not show their heads.' He declared that no president had violated/1 the spirit of the constitution as Cleveland,« had in writing the Wilson letter, and concluded by declaring that the senate could not recede.
