A young man named Elzo Davies was killed in a runaway accident While moving a family from Everly to Esthe'r- ville. Fred Mohley, a prominent resident bear Sperry, was instantly killed in a runaway, his neck being broken. He leaves a widow and five children. Robert Metcalf, a 15-year-old boy, fell under a Milwaukee freight train upon which he was stealing a ride, and had his right leg so badly crushed that amputation was necessary. Fire at Clinton of undoubted incendiary origin destroyed eight barns and damaged the residences of E. W. Moulton, A. O. .Walker, Sol Hirsch. Mrs. Conant and Mrs. Land. Loss, 85,000. Ex-Sheriff John Coldren, leader of the democratic forces at Iowa City, was found dead in an alley on the west side of the Iowa river in that city. The cause of death is a great mystery, He ate supper as usual, was very well and happy, and gave orders about his business and the campaign about an hour before he was found. In 1802 Governor Boies pardoned George Fertig, of Floyd county, who had been found guilty of violating the prohibitory law. He was sentenced to jail for 135 days and to pay a fine of $3,000 The sentence having been suspended, the case died practically until called to the attention, of Governor Jackson in connection with another violation of law, and now the pardon has been revoked. At the Sioux City Inter-State Fair Online's great performance in the attempt to beat his record of 2:07^ was a feature. The track was fast and scarcely a breeze was blowing. Chandler drove Online, and the runner (Cheerful) was driven by Ed Geers and acted as a pacer. The first quarter was made in :32, the second 1:03, the third in 1:35; and the mile in 2:04, breaking the world's four-year-old pacing record. A serious runaway accident occurred near Ringgold City, Ringgold county, in which Mrs. J. T. Ireland, who is well known in tnat section, was killed. She was driving a team along the road when one of the horses got a line under its tail and began to kick and run, and threw her out of the buggy, striking on her shoulder and crushing it and bursting a blood vein. She was soon picked up and everything that human aid could do to relieve her of agony was done. She Was conscious up to death, which was a few hours after *,he accident, A wreck of a freight train occurred on the C. , M. & St. P. at the gravel pit on the Des Moines river, four miles from Woodward. Four cars of coal and one box car were completely demolished. The box car contained a trotting horse in charge of a boy. Both were slightly injured. Two tramps were riding on the rodfe.under a coal car next to the oneB^^e'cked, They were unharmed with the- exception that one of them was partly covered up with coal and the other lost a few teeth and part of his clothes. The wreck was caused by the "breaking of the front trucks of a coal car just as they went on the river bridge. A delay of nine hours in the running of trains resulted. In the race at the Inter-State Fair at Sioux City between Joe Patchen and Robert J., the latter won. In the first heat Patchen took the lead by a shoulder and kept it with hardly a variation of a hair until into the home stretch, when Robert J. slowly crept up on him and came under the wire by a short neck in 2:06. In the second heat Robert J, took the lead a length and easily held it to the finish, time as first, 3:06, In the last heat Robert soon put a length be'tween him and his black rival. Coining into the stretch Geers let Robert out,' and be won by five lengths, Ther§.'was a cyclone of applause a fewjgpjpjejits after when the announced at 2:03%, within of hisTrecard. The last quar- a #;00 gait. body; of a young man was the Rock Island track east of The body was found lying side of the road. One leg was crushed off near the body, and the head also mutilated. He was a man of about twenty-three, five feet six inches in height. He was fairly well dressed. His hair was red and he had evidently been i* J^b^ring map/, t .The indications are that he was stealing ride on an east bound train which passed a few hours before. It was reported that he had been put off of train several tiroes while it was still IB the Des Mo|ne§ y#rds and it ppse<J that Jie §t. last secured^ either fell off or -was pushed off he was JsilJad.

The vacancy will not be filled until November 20, when the league will meet again iri Chicago to hear re ports of the special committee ap* pointed to investigate the applications for clubs at Chicago, St. Paul and Co- lumbtts. Judge Woolson of the federal court disposed of a lot of bootleggers at Coiincil Bluffs. Among them was one woman, Betty Davis, who had pleaded guilty' She was before Judge Woolson in Keokuk county for the same offense and pleaded guilty there, but secured suspension of sentence by promising to do better. After summoning her for sentence the judge again deferred sentence. William Bolton got thirty days and $200 fine, but both were suspended in case he went to Marshalltown and took the Keeley cure. Others who were sentenced were: David Knapp, 8200 and seventy-five days; Bert Fruits, $500 and one year; J. T. Bryant, $200 and seventy-five days; John F. Pettit, $300 and 100 days; Laurence Hunter, $400 and nine months; Taylor Spencer, $250 and seventy-five days; Andy Swabe, $300 and 100 days; Robert Perigo, $300 and 100 days. Deputy United Marshal O. E. Wray, of Ottumwa, was shot at 3 o'clock in the morning at Albia and narrowly escaped fatal injuries while taking Gabe Johnson, a bootlegger, to the early train. Two men with loaded shotguns intercepted him in an alley and demanded of him to surrender the prisoner. Wra.y refused and one of the would-be assassins fired a charge of buckshot at close range, taking effect in his hips and back. Although Wray fell and Johnson escaped, the villains fired three more charges Of shot at the officer while he was down, but none of them took effect. The highwaymen are supposed to be Johnson's brothers and a man named Napier. They are all .Kentuckians and were supposed to have run an illicit still somewhere near Albia. A posse has been hunting them without success. Wray was sent home and unless blood poisoning occurs will soon recover. He is a son-in-law of Judge Trimbell of Keokuk. ; A total of ninety-two warrants were recently issued against three members of the board of supervisors of Woodbury county. A constable went to Sloan and brought back Supervisor F. O. Hunting, while Strange gave himself up to the officers. Both have given bonds. Against these men and Supervisor Epps there are various charges of obtaining money by false pretenses and for misdemeanor in office. The bail in the former class of cases is $500 and in the latter $200 each. Efforts are being made by parties interested for a settlement of the whole trouble without further expense, but these efforts do not seem likely to succeed. Some of the supervisors charge the editor of the Sioux City Tribune with instigating these later suits to divert attention away from the investigation of the printing bills, and so there is a good deal of ill feeling mixed up in the cases, It is not likely that justice will be cheated by compromises. Fire which started in A. D. Morse's livery stable at Adel burned the barn and contents, with a loss of about $3,000. A strong wind was blowing from the south and the opera house block was soon on fire Bailey's dry goods stock was destroyed at a loss of $35,000, with $8,000 insurance. The grocery firm of Row & Book suffered a loss- of $6,000, Tice's restaurant burned and his household goods were also destroyed; loss $3,000, with no insurance. Next to go was I. G. Lambert's, restaurant building and household effects, worth $4,000; no insurance reported. G, W, .Campbell's merchant tailoring establishment sustained a total loss, including one brick and one frame building, valued at $3,500; no insurance. At this point the fire jumped across the street to the Masonic Temple, which is a three-story struct ure, occupied below by G. Roland's general store. The damage to the Masonic Temple and Roland's amounts probably to $3,000, with no insurance reported. The opera house was en tirely destroyed, It was a two-story double brick building valued at $10;OQQ and there was only $3,000 insurance, J. G,' Roland's Joss on his tvvQ'Story brick building is pnt at $5,000, The complete loss will reach about $QO,000 as nearly a block of buildings were destroyed.

He says the men inust receive living wages. A seven story tenement, hottse in New York, fell, crushing another building and burying a score of people in the ruins. Six of the number were killed and the rest more or less injured. Japanese advices state that the Japs have captured .Che Foo. The anti^Hill democrats met at New York and denounced Hill. They then nominated an independent ticket, placing Everett P. Wheeler of New York city in the field for governor. Lockwood and , Brown were endorsed for lieutenant governor and judge of the court of appeals. Oliver Wendell Holmes, the famous poet, essayist, novelist, philosopher and scientist, died at his residence in Boston on the afternoon of the 7th. He passed peacefully away after an illness of short duration, the immediate cause of death being heart failiire, the result of extreme old age. His son, Judge Oliver W. Holmes, Jr., the judge's wife, and Dr. Charles P. Putnam, the family physician, were at the bedside. Dr. Holmes' death was not unlocked for, as he had been ailing for about ten days, or since he returned from Beverly, where his summer residence is located. Oliver Wendell Holmes was born in Cambridge, Mass., August 29, 1809. Ex-Governor Andrew G. Curtin, of Pennsylvania, died at his home in Bellefontc, on the 7th' His end was peaceful, he having been unconscious during the last twelve hours. All the members of liis family were at his bedside when he passed awaj'. Mr. Curtin had been in feeble health for some weeks, but his condition grew serious a few days before his death, and from that time he sank rapidly. Death was caused by old age. The ex-governor was in his eightieth year, this being combined with nervous trouble, which, upon reaching the vital point in the brain, ended his life. Gov, Curtin's death leaves but one war governor living, Gov. Sprague of Rhode Island. The czar is suffering with Bright's disease and it is said his condition is hopeless. The New. York democratic state central committee nominated Charles F. Brown for judge of the court of appeals in place of Judge Gaynor, declined. Hill and Lockwood were notified of their nomination, and made speeches of acceptance. IOWA PATENT OFFICE REPORT. DES MOINES, Oct. 8. — A Canada patent was issued October 3 to F. D.

REVOLVER IN HIS FACE: **•' Partner Attempt to Rob the TVilkosbArre n l'o8to(nco Harly this Morning. WiLKESBAJniE, Pa., Oct. 13.—A daring attempt wds made to rob the post-' office in this city early yesterday by two men who had secreted, themselves bo. the building. When the nightj clerk,'Lewis D. Garney, opened the door leading from the inailrooin proper to the main entrance for the purpose of collecting mail from a box in'the corridor'he was confronted by a burly man, who thrust a revolver into his face and told him to throw up his hands., The clerk was frightened almost to death and, jumping back, slammed the door in the face of the burglar. The assistant night clerk blew' a police whistle and several officers were soon on the scene. The burglars had fled, however, before the arrival of the officers. Frank Charles was arrested about an hour after the attempted robbery, on suspicion, The postoffice is situated in the heart of the city and the would- be burglars doubtless thought Garney was alone in the office., as it was time for his assitant to be off-duty. CORBETT WILL FIGHT. To Meet FitzsimuioiiH at Jacksonville After July 1, 1805. NEW YOBIC, Oct. 13;— Corbett and Fitzsimmons, who fora month have been talking a great deal about meeting each other in the ring, met in a newspaper office yesterday and decided to advertise themselves for a year and then fight—maybe. The final result of it was that the same articles which governed the Sullivan-Corbett fight will govern, this one. Corbett stipulated that he would •, not have to fight until July 1, 1895, or after, and Fitzsimmons finally acceeded to this demand. The men accepted the offer of a purse of $41,000, made by Joe Vendig on behalf of the Florida Athletic club. _ Indiana Y. P. S. C.
