^-S -_,f ,<: • *tf » ', v If Algana Republican, AtXIONA. ? "W. O. Craigs, of Ida Grove, fell from the blind end of a baggage car on express train No. 5 as it was entering Oakes. One leg was cut off and the other badly injured. He may die. The Polk county attorney has applied lor permanent injunctions against forty-five Des Moines saloons on the ground that the petition filed recently lacks 300 of the 5,300 required by law. . The A. O. U. W. case, which was set for trial before Judge Ney, in Dubu* one, on Sept. 4, has been again postponed owing to the illness of Judge Nourse, one of the counsel in this case. The family of Jerry Pelton, of Lyons, are greatly concerned over his mysterious disappearance and fear something has befallen him. He was last seen walking toward Comanche along the B., C. R. & N. Railroad. When he left he wore gray trousers, black shirt, "white straw hat, no coat or vest. He is of medium height, dark hair and eyes, dark mustache and of rather dark complexion. His wife and father are well nigh frantic over his disappearance. W. T. Ruble has begun suit against the Des Moines street railway company for &5,000. He claims damages for the death of his little son, Guy Ruble, in North Des Moines, a few months ago. The child was standing by his mother near the track waiting for a car. As the car came up the child got onto the track and before the machinery could be stopped or the boy rescued by his mother, he was run over and so mangled that he died. The coroner's jury exonerated the company. By direction of the president, a medal of honor by an act of congress has been issued to First Lieutenant Henry I. Smith, Seventh Iowa infantry, for most distinguished gallantry at the crossing of Black River, N. C., March 15, 1865. He was then serving on the staff of brigade commander, when •under fire and at the peril of his own life, he fearlessly plunged into the swiftly flower river, swollen beyond its banks, and rescued a soldier who had been swept down the stream beyond his depth. In the district court of O'Brien county David Griggs, a brother of the ex- fish commissioner, has sued the Chicago & Northwestern railroad company for damages to a valuable trotting horse injured in shipping over that road. F. B. Holdridge, a brakeman on the Chicago. St. Paul, Minneapolis and Omaha, sues that railway company for §1,900 damages in crushing his hand between the bumpers on a freight train. Louisa Tangman wants §5,000 from John Miller for certain alleged slanderous words spoken. Six years of hard labor in the penitentiary was the sentence passed by Judge Thornell at Harlan, upon A. W. Dickerson of Cass county bank fame, for his fraudulent banking. Mr. Dick- ersod had read by his attorneys a statement attempting to shift some of the responsibility for the bank's condition upon the president and directors, but as a justification of his own course it was a failure. The judge said in sentencing Uickerson: "I have been importuned by many of the accused's friends to give a light sentence, but must adhere to the conclusion to give a severe sentence for the sake of public demands and for the honesty of banks and bankers." The case of McLaughlan, Case, Mushrush and Jones, who are under indictment for the murder of Frank Leib last April, will come off for trial at Audubon October 9, before Judge Thornell. The prosecution is in charge of R. C, Carpenter, county attorney, and Wm. Wonn, one of the best criminal lawyers in western Iowa. Judge Henry Funk and Col. C. H. Mackey are retained by the defense. This is looked forward to as the greatest trial that ever engaged the attention of a court in the county; The defendants are now securely held in jail and every precaution is being taken, that they "may be on"hand to*"answer when court convenes. Another Iowa town has been wiped out of existence. Dows City, in Wright county, a town of about 1,000 inhabitants, suffered a §150,000 blaze. The fire originated in the Mulnox brick shortly after 3 o'clock in the morning, and was well under way when the first alarm was sounded, The Clarion and Jowa Falls companies were called upon to assist and they responded promptly, The Burlington railroad got them to the city as quickly as possible. The .wind was blowing very hard, and in less than one hour not enough was left of the flourishing town for recognition. Two dilapidated stores and about fifty (dwellings is all that is Jeft, The total insurance reaches $75,000. populist convention of the congressional district endorsed the democratic nominee* Frank Q. Stuart, of Phariton, P. £. ?ray, clerk of the supreme eourt, has notified the members of the •bar and all others interested that it has teen ordered by the supreme court ^at in waUing* u p the dftejset lor the Ostler, term, fljp clevfe shall "" hearing, all Pa.698' :CQnUnu,ecj Wilson & Chase's a>y gotsds sk*8 at Cedar Falls was almost destroyed by fire at an early motning hour. The fire is supposed to have been caused by spontaneous combustion in a pile of blankets. The stock was damaged to the extent of 812,000 to $15,000. the insurance is as follows: Home of New York, $2,000; Continental, $2,000; Rock* ford, $2,500; Commercial Assurance, $2,000; Pacific of New York, $1,500; Insurance Company of North America, $1,000; Iowa Mutual, $1,080. Though rain spoiled the fair and the races at Des Moines on the 6th, the laying of the corner stone of the Soldiers' and Sailors' monument was proceeded With with but little inconvenience, as the downpour ceased about 1 o'clock. Shortly afterward the procession Was formed and moved to the site. Arrived here, Governor Jackson, president of the day, introduced Rev. B. F, W. Cozier, who offered prayer. After music by the Iowa State Band the grand officers of the Masonic order performed the ceremonies of laying the corner stone. Senator Harlan, orator of the day, then delivered his address, being followed by Gen. Geo. A. Newman, commander of the G. A. R., and Hon. Thomas Hedges, of Burlington. An important decision has just been rendered by Superintendent of Public Instruction Sabin at Des Moines. tsOV» PECK til tits 1st tto f fetrd It is said that China is fief biiating for Chili's navy and that a first pay* ment has already been made. The match race tit Indianapolis for ft purse of $5,000 between Robert J. and Joe Patchen was expected to bring forbh some phenomenal speed, but not one of the 10,000 people gathered at the track was prepared for the terrible smashing of records that began with the word "go.*' The day was all that could be desired and the track was perfect. The first heat was paced in 2:03%, Robert J. Winning and Patchett coming itt a nose behind. The second heat Was clipped off in 2:02^, Patchen's time being 2:02M? the third heat, 2:64%, Patchett being a half lettgth behind, The three heats averaged 2:03 3*5. General Nathan P. Banks died at his home itt Waltham, Mass., ott the 1st, He Was sick but a few days, Near Memphis, Tetttt., a few days ago, while six negroes charged with incendiarism were being taken to jail by the sheriff, they were stopped by a mob of fifty men armed with shotguns, who shot the prisoners to death. Samuel Fallon, of Webster county, has S, J. KIRKWOOD IS DEAD, of The Grand Old War Governor Iowa Passes Away- The death of Iowa's grand old war two boys who have been going to school in Fort Dodge. The county superintendent decided that as Fallon lived in the country outside of the independent school district he could not have the advantages of the schools without paying for them. Fallon claimed the boys were residents of Fort Dodge because they worked for their board in that city in order to go to school. Superintendent Sabin has decided against him, saying that as the boys were still dependent on him their residence was with their father, who had not given up his claim on them. Mr. J. C. Cotnam, of Norwalk, met with an accident at Des Moines which resulted in his death a few hours later. He was going to the east side to stay with a relative, a gentleman named Stout. He was not watching the progress of the car and suddenly noticed that it had passed the place where he should get off. He was at that time about two car lengths from the turn. In leaping from the car he jumped straight out, the momentum of the car causing him to fall with great severity on the pavement. Several contusions of the skull were seen on examination and the ambulance being called he was taken to his nephew's home in the ambulance. It was found that his skull had been fractured. He died the following day. The coroner's jury rendered a verdict of accidental death, exonerating the street car company. The deceased was 61 years of age and leaves a wife and two children. John H. Catter, a butcher residing at Burr Oak, twelve miles north of Decorah, was lodged in the Winneshiek county jail, under suspicion of having killed his wife and George Wemmet, a former employe. Mrs. Catter was found in the barn, with her throat cut in several places andher face badly cut and bruised,'and Wemmett was found' near the village school, with a bullet hole back of one ear. It is said Catter has been unduly intimate with a Mrs. Heath, a fact which Mrs. Catter learned. It is supposed that she got Wem- met to catch them, and that when Catter found this out he became so enraged that he killed Wemmett and then killed his wife because she would be a witness against him in the case, and he was arrested, Catter's arrest was the result of the coroner's inquest, from the fact that tracks around the school house corresponded with those of Wemmett and those which Catter acknowledges he wore, During a recent storm at Newton the fine residence of Hon. Wm. McElroy, in the east part of the city was struck by lightning and badly wrecked. The lightning appears to have struck the central chimney and on reaching the electric wires followed them to different parts of the building. The floors and ceilings wherever the wires extend are torn up and wrecked, doors torn off their hinges and general destruction wrought. The north front is Shattered and destroyed, sojne of the material being found over 150 feet from the building. The glass in the tower over the main stairway is mostly broken. The lightning came to the ground at the corners of the building, &t one place tearing out the stone foundation. Of the five persons sleep, ing in different parts of the building none were injured by the currents or flying debris. The hall, parlor and and Mr. McElroy's sleeping room are ft wrecl?, without doors or walls to protect from wind and storm. The west front, which does not show much, damage, is wrenched and twisted, showing wonderful force of the shock, The building will have tobe»lmp§t entirely rebuilt as the wreck is almost complete. All but two Independence saloons, were closed a few days ago under the mulct law, the flwt attempt t,9 enloyce the law in that city. Failure to gain consent p|" property owners Is the cause.

Kirkwood, occurred at his late residence, on Kirkwood avenue, in Iowa City, at 1:15, on the afternoon of the 1st. He was afflicted with no acute ailment, but for the past eight or ten months had been slowly sinking. Up to ten days before he was able to go upstairs to retire and not until a few days previous was he compelled to take his bed never to rise again. That evening he said to a son of Hon. Ezekiel Clark: "I am an old man now, my race is almost run." At his death bed were gathered the members of his family and relatives only. He was conscious almost to the last, recognizing those about him, and but a short while before the end came he spoke with her who had been his faithful companion for half a century. He had known for a long time that his life was drawing to a close,; and calmly and contentedly at peace with the world, for "none knew him but to love him, none named but to praise," he awaited the coming of the angel of death. Upon receipt of the news of the death of the old war governor, Gov. Jackson issued a proclamation' calling attention to the death and ordering flags on public buildings, displayed at half mast, and that the capitol be appropriately draped. The funeral services over the remains of Iowa's honored war_ governor were held at the family residence in Iowa City on the 4th. Eev. E. N. Barrett, pastor of the Presbyterian church of that city, and commander of G. A. K. post No. 8, and Rev. F. E. Brush, pastor of the M. E. church, conducted the funeral services, after which addresses were made by Gov. Jackson, Senator William B. Allison and others. The funeral cortege was a lengthy one Business was practically suspended and the public schools were closed.

For the immediate free and unlimited coinage of silver at the ratio of 16 to 1. 2 We oppose the issue of the United States bonds under any pretext whatever.

The latest advices from the scene of #ie fire indicate that thefe- will be nearly four hundred lives lost.. This includes the fatalities at Hinck*- lev, Pokegama, Rutledge* Sandstone and all the area covered by the eon- naffratiott. Searching for the dead, under anything like system was only begun yesterday morning, At noon fully two hundred dead were gathered in the cemetery at Hinckley awaiting burial, There were two great heaps of naked and charred bodies in every conceivable attitude, There Were six* teen known to be dead at Pokegama. There were fifty-one at Sandstone village, and about thiny more f»d.n outlaying country, But it must be re* membered that the fire covered a large area of country, some of it very hard to get over by searching parties. There are many isolated families- living in the country and all suffered to some extent, It will take at least a week to ascertain how many are lost, and many of them will never be identified. Many families are being cared for at Pine City, Duluth and Superior. At the former place there are about 500 homeless people, and' it is estimated that at least 1,000 people will have to be taken care of until they can get a new start in life. The wounded in the hospitals at Pine City were all doing well. The surgical staff has. been supplemented by a number of physicians from the Twin cities, and with possibly one or two exceptions all the wounded at these places will recover. , The aggregate loss will run into millions, but it is absolutely impossible to- give any reliable estimate as so wide an extent of country was devastated. The largest single loss was that of the Banner Lumber Company of Hinckjey which is placed at $600,000 by. the o:" fleers of the company. The aggrega loss is variously estimated at fr< $3,000,000 to $5,000,000, and this_ d not include the standing pine tim destroyed. . ' Hinckley.

DULUTH, Sept. 5.—Reports from Pin«< City, Hinckley and the region devastated by the awful forest fires state that the list of fatalities is increasing and that it is now estimated that the- number of dead will reach 500 or 600; The fire is still raging near Bra'inard' / and cannot be stayed until a good rain ' comes. The number of dead at Hinckley now reaches 350. Thousands -of dollars of relief money are being con- , tributed by people of the state and every effort is being made to render- assistance to the afflicted.
