L. S. Cooper died at Primgha*. tie Was a leading citizen of the county, prominent in real estate and banking circles. J. J. Shea, nominated by the Iowa democrats as supreme court reporter, lias sent the state committee a letter declining to be a candidate. Fire broke out at 4 o'clock in the morning in the electric light plant at Marion and spread to adjoining buildings and destroyed nearly an entire block and a quarter of the business part of town. The water failed, leav- property to the mercy of the flames. The losses aggregate ,$115,000; insurance only about thirty-three thousand dollars. Fire started at Stuart in the la.rge warehouse of Ainsworth, Holmes & Co., which, with contents, was totally destroyed. Loss about 83,000, said to be fully insured. During the excitement consequent upon the fire, a tramp entered the new Temple and rifled the pockets of the workmen therein employed. He was f .ken in the act and promptly jailed. Mrs. Spry entered a cave at the rear of her residence at Stuart to get gasoline with which to prepare the evening meal. It being dark in the cave a match was lit, and she was immediately enveloped in flames and ran screaming through the house, sinking in >the front yard. All that loving hands could do to alleviate her sufferings was done, but within a few hours she died. Highland Park Normal College, Des Moines, Iowa, is undoubtedly the best school in the country for teachers. Besides the regular didactic course which is usually maintained in the Normal Schools there is a department of Kindergarten and Primary work with a Model School in session all the year. We believe there is no other school that furnishes such excellent advantages for young people preparing to teach. The Des Moines Fire Insurance Company won for itself the praise and commendation of all Iowa people for its prompt and generous payment to Pomeroy sufferers last year of nearly $37,000.00. It is a gratifying fact, that during the first six months of 1894', this company increased its business $40,-' 000.00 without extra expense or special effort. This speaks well for the popularity and favor in which this worthy home company is held by the insuring public. William Wakeley, Omaha's city clerk and well known politician, committed suicide in a spectacular manner. He accompanied a party of ladies to Lake Manawa, and after seeing the ladies to the water's edge, climbed one of the ropes and facing a large crowd of sight-seers, drew a revolver, blew out his brains, and dropped into the lake. His conduct had not been unusual up to the moment he drew the gun. His affairs are supposed to be in good order, and his family can assig'n no rea- feon for the deed. The Iowa Soldiers' Monument Commission met at Chicago on the 3d. There were present six members of the commission—R. S. Finkbine, the well known architect of Des Moines; C. H. Gatch, Mrs. Cora, Weed, L. ID. Mitchell, E. Townsend and D. N, Richardson. The chairman of the commission, who is Governor Jackson, was not present. The principal business transacted was to set ..the date for the laying of the corner stone, and September 0 was selected. The principal address on that occasion will be delivered by ex-Senator James Harlan, who will present the monument to the soldiers on behalf of the state. The ceremony of laying the corner stone will be performed by the Masonic fraternity. A collision occurred on the bridge across the Big Sioux river on the Mil^ waukee railroad in the suburbs of Sioux City. A freight train stopped there to do some switching at an ice house, and left a part of the train standing on the bridge and trestle on the Dakota side. A few minutes later another freight train came along and the engineer was unable to stop before reaching' the standing train. The engineer and his fireman jumped and saved themselves, but the engine plowed its way through the standing < train. The caboose was pushed across the river and overturned on the Dakota side, btit one loaded and two empty cars were thrown into the river. A Chicago traveling man was in the caboose, and when he saw the engine coining, lay down in the bottom of the car and came out of the debris unharmed. ,^-;"... * > Hon. Adam F.

Mafla« Shearer, the 16- year-old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. L. S. Shearer, north of Troy, disappeared recently as completely as* if the earth had Swallowed her, and though ponds have been dragged and a thorough search has been made no .trace can be found of her. George McVeigh, a 16-year-old boy at Floris, without any reason, disappeared as mysteriously from home on the 29th, and the same night Laura and Lizzie Ash, 14 and 16 years, respectively, living south of Ottuinwa, failed to materialize tinder the parental roof. There is a clue to the whereabouts of the missing 1 boy, but not a Word has been heard from the girls. The Jewell rainmaking experiments Which have been going on at Fort Dodge recently ended. No rain has fallen and the whole proceeding has been a lamentable fizzle. The operations were carried on by intelligent men who went to Kansas to receive personal instructions from Jewell. The first two days were very windy, which might have worked against its success. A fair test has been had since, however; It was cloudy a number of times and it would seem that if there was any virtue in the system it would have been able to induce a falling of the moisture which was plainly above. None fell, and the next time Mr. Jewell wants 8400 from Ft. Dodge for his voodooism he will have to guarantee it will work. Many inquiries a.re daily received from drouth stricken localities asking about the success of the trial. Fire started in a blacksmith shop at Belle Plaine on the 28th, which resulted in the nearly total destruction of the business part of town, only three buildings remaining. The loss is estimated at $500,000, with perhaps insurance amounting to $300,000. The flames, owing to the buildings being very dry. were soon bey ond control. From Kroh's livery stable the flames leaped across the street into another livery stable and the engine- house and spread up the main street west to the Henry Hotel; then across the street into a billiard hall, and continuing east so engulfed the entire business part of the city, leaving ruin and ashes in its wake. Thirty-two business • firms were burned out, including the engine house and city hall, the opera house and the Citizens' bank. There were also a number of dwellings destroyed. Fire which was discovered in the rear end of Wood & Kibby's furniture store next, to the Chronicle office on Fourth street at Brooklyn at 1 o'clock in the morhing, did immense damage to that city. The fire engines failed to work well for the first half hour and it was plain to be seen that the flames were under such headway that the business portions of the town on the north side of Front and west side of Jackson streets was doomed to destruction. The total loss reaches $125,000; insurance half that much. A steamer was sent from Grinnell at 3 a. m. Following are the names of those burned out: Brooklyn'Chronicle, Wood & Kibby, Drs. Conoway & Busby, Scott, Reed & Scott, Frank Butts, Poweshiek County Bank, Boston clothing store, postoffice, J. P. Wood, J. T. Krouskuk & Son, Rayburn & Lee, Dr. Landes, Ola White, Chas. West, E. H.

The weekly report of the Iowa Weather and Crop service says; The past week has been the worst of the season. The daily temperature averaged seven degrees above the normal. On the 36th the temperature ranged from 100 degrees to 107 degrees, with winds twenty to thirty-five miles an hour—the severest in its effects upon vegetation ever known in Iowa. Light showers are reported along the eastern border, and at a few localities in the interior, affording temporary relief in checking the, process of desiccation. Variable reports are received as to the effects of the drouth and hot winds upon corn. In the central and southern districts the damage is much greatern than in the northern belt, The consensus of opinion seems to be that about one-fourth of the acreage planted will yield no corn and but little fodder, With speedy and substantial relief the state at large may possibly harvest one-half an average crop, But every day's continuance of present conditions will lower the possibilities and decrease the output, Pastures are dry and feeding stock is now general. Late sown millet has not sprouted. Potatoes and flax are greatly damaged. Threshing returns show better yields of rye, wheat, oats and barley than were expected. The Fisher <%; Co, ice house north of Dubuque was burned with 1,500 tons of ice. Loss, $3,000; insurance, $1,000. The Second tlistrie-t republicans held an enthusiastic convention at Paven- pprt and nominated the man who is to oppose Hon. Walter J, Hayes, of Clinton, the one democrat on the Iowa congressional delegation, in the cam? paign that is to open. }le is Geo. M. Curtis, of Clinton, a wealthy lumber wan pf that city.

On the 3rd the trial Was •concluded and given to the jury and" in thirteen minutes the jury returned a verdict of guilty. Santo was sentenced to death by guillotine. Wh.'eh the sentence was uttered Santo exclaimed: "Long live social revolution,'' adding, as he was hurried away by the gMar.d: "Courage, comrades; long live an* archy, " Champion James Corbett has returned from England. t)iplomatic relations between China and Japan have been severed. It- is officially announced that Russia will act in complete accord with Great Britain in the effort to settle the China- Japanese difficulty, Failing in this she will not allow any power to take even partial possession of Corea. The lumber district at Chicago was visited by a fire that burned over a territory covering six squa.res one way and three the other, and the loss occasioned will probably reach Iftl. 500,000. Fifty engines and three fire boats fought the flames for several hours before the tire was under control. Four persons were cither killed or f ata.lly injured. The Japanese government has instructed its minister at London to apologize to Great Britain for sinking the Chinese transport Kow Shung while flying the British flag and to say the commander of the Japanese cruiser did not know the Kow Shung was a British vessel till after 'the fight. The Japanese government has. informed the representatives of foreign powers that a state of Avar exists between China and Japan. The Chinese fleets m the battle in which Chen Yuen a.nd two first class cruisers were ca.ptured or destroyed by the Japa.nese carried nearly one thousand men, few if any of whom escaped. Two German ofiicers in command of the Chen Yuen it is reported, met death with the rest of the crew. It is said this means an end has been put to China's fighting upon the sea,s, as the reported result of this last fight leaves her navy badly crippled. ' Chicago railroads have filed claims against the city for damages in the sum. of $39,381 as a result of rioting in the recent strike. This sum is claimed for two days only and other claims will be filed. A London dispatch says that England is assisting "China in her present difficulty with Japa.n. The vessel sunk by the Japanese recently was owned by a British firm, though it was carrying. Chinese soldiers. The firm has asked for damages through the English foreign office. Reports from Kansas and Nebraska are to the effect that the corn crop is literally burned up. Two weeks a.go the crop in Nebraska was estimated afc 400,000,000 bushels, but now it is believed it will be necessary to ship corn into many counties. Hundreds of square miles of the finest looking corn are now dry and lifeless, and disheartened settlers are already thronging the highwaj's eastward. Forest fires in Northern Wiscon-' sin have done incalculable damage to that region, wiping out several towns. At Mason the houses of the town proper are still standing, but the loss will reach $700,000. Trains on the Omaha were headed off at Mason by the burning of ai bridge, and all northbound trains returned to Spooner, Briefly summarized the fires burned as follows: City of Phillips, entirely wiped out; Mason, practically destroyed, with the White River Lumber Co., and 30,000,000 feet of lumber: the headquarters of the Ashland Lumber Co., near Shore's Crossing, was entirely wiped out; a special train on the Omaha, consisting of sixteen cars and a locomotive, were all burned, having broken through a bridge near Ashland Junction; the camps of the Thompson Lumber Co, were burned at White River; two bridges on the main line of the Omaha railroad, and two bridges on the Wisconsin Central railroad, both on the main line south oi Ashland, burned. Besides the above the damage to timber and logs scattered throxigh the woods, to individual homesteaders, houses and other property, to cut cord wood, etc,, will swell the general damage to appalling figures. Several parties of berry pickers from Ashland narrowly escaped with their lives, and it is almost certain that some of the lone homesteaders scattered through the burning timber perished in the flames, unless they in some manner escaped througli the suft'oca* ting flames and smoke. Refugees have begun to a rrive at Ashland. OH Monit«mi GREAT FALLS, Mont, Aug. 4. —A. strike on Montana Central went into effect here at noon yesterday.

The trial will not last long. KILLED BY CHINESE. More Than Two Thousand Japanese Soldiers Slain. SHANGHAI, Aug. 4. — It is estimated that more than 3,000 Japanese were slain by the Chinese last Sunday near Yashan. A terrific battle was fought and the victory of the Chinese forces was complete, the. Japanese withdrawing to Seoul. The Chinese forces were commanded by Gen. Yes. Twenty thousand Manchurian Chinese troops have crossed the Corean frontier and are marching upon Seoul. In consequence of the declaration of war upon China, proclaimed by Japan yesterday, the Chinese minister will quit Tokio tomorrow. The. Japanese flag was hauled down from the consulate here. The light has been removed from the mouth of the Ning Po river. It is rumored here that eight Russian warships with troops aboard have left Vladivostock under sealed orders According to report .a boatful of men escaped from the transport Kow Shung lefore she went down and reached Shopiau island in safety. irire at I.amonre, K. D. LAMOUJUS', N. D., Aug. 4 —This city is. in ashes. A great fire broke out on Front street at an early hour this morning, and, fanned by a strong wind, laid waste the entire business center of the town. Four blocks of stores are burned, including the county court house and the records. The Leland hotel and a drug store are the only buildings left standing. The loss is $500,000 and only partially covered by insurance. The fire is not yet extinguished. . Releases the Private. WASHINGTON, Aug. 4, — The secretary of war has .remitted the unexecuted part of the sentence in the case of Private Cedarquist at Omaha barracks, who was sentenced to fine and imprisonment for refusing to engage in target practice on Sunday, The secretary has directed that Major Worth, the officer who gave the order for the practice, in violation of the President's proclamation, shall be court martialed for disobedience.

Shortly after 6 o'clock workmen began to ttf s rive iti groups of two and three. About fifty came ott a traitt ffoni Chi* cago, and a number of others Were Recognized by the strikers as being Harvey tnen. As sooh as the 6:30 whistle blew and the Work inside be* gan the cfrotvds melted away, and during the Jfest of the,day everything was as quiet and peaceful as a Sunday afternoon. About 3o6 men, according to Manager Middleton, Went to Work. Of these Home were old employes and "straw- bosses," who have been acting as watchmen since the strike began. The strikers are firm in their determination to maintain the struggle to the last It was the general opinion among them that the company had secured practically no skilled mechanics None of the local unions would admit that any of their men had deserted the ranks. One of the strikersnvas of the opinion that a few men might possibly go back, but it would only be to stay a month or two and make enough money to get out of town. Mayor Hopkins made a trip through Pullman to investigate the advisability of withdrawing the troops. He was of the opinion that if everything remained quiet they would probably be ordered home to-day or Saturday. A. K. U. CONVENTION. the Strike Question Will Be Settled In Meeting To-duy. CHICAGO, Aug. 4. — It is the opinion of the leading delegates to the convention of the American Railway Union that at to-day's session the strike will be shorn of its national character and that whatever fight is made by the organization in the future will be on separate railway systems and under the -management of system ofiicers. Many of the delegates-think that more can be accomplished in this way than in anv other and by adopting this method the executive officers of the organization will be relieved of much of the responsibility and the men directly interested will be in a better position to gain information as to what is being done. It is probable that some of the systems will return to work, while it is said to be nearly a certainty than <-the strike will be pushed to a final ending- on^others. •" The delegates from the far west were almost to a man of the opinion that they would win the fight They said that the strike on the western roads was as much in force as it was the first day, and they said that with each passing day the prospects of a a favorable settlement became brighter. There was a feeling among the delegates that even though the men might return to work on all the other roads the strike would be continued against the Santa Fe. This is for the reasons, it is said, that the receivers have been cutting waffes, that the road is behind in salaries, and that it has been especially active in the prosecution of the officers of the union. After appointing a press committee the convention adjourned until '9 o'clock this morning. It is believed that the convention will complete the work before it to'day and that a final adjournment will be taken this evening, Politics crept into the deliberatipns of the convention in an indirect way several times, and the sentiment 0* 1 the delegates was that the railroad men of the country should suppprt the pppulist ticket this fall pf thirtyrfive J» r wflft pp,W!ierj(*i fcbe'Qplden Gate the 9* Wureml 3l.=*-Fire at' Cottel, a tow» jo the, ha,ye npt been. res?elY?4t ^ it 18 be,, ,.
