Bail was refused in tho case. Alonzo ' Adams, who is charged with being an accessory to the crime, is being examined. The atrocity of the murder created considerable excitement at the time of its occurrence, and the court .;room where the examination was held •was crowded. t Harvey Crandell was arrested at Armstrong by the sheriff's officers and brought to Sioux City on the charge of grand larceny, preferred by D. B. Huston, of the latter place. Mr. Huston is in the butter and egg business at. Correctionville, and Crandell was employed by him as a driver. About November 20 he disappeared, and a double sot of harness valued at $40 went with him. It was learned a few days ago that he. was in Armstrong, and his arrest followed. Judge vShiras has appointed J'oiin Balch, of Boston, receiver of the Dubuque Light and Traction Company. The application was made by the Old Colony Trust Company of Boston. The company is trustee of a first mortgage to secure $385,000 on bonds which defendant had defatilted in payment of interest due. It is alleged the Dubuque company has failed to pay taxes or meet its interest. There is besides, a large amount of outstanding bills. This is the old Allen-Sweeney line. The weather department and the Martin mulct law are likely to clash in Iowa this winter. The mulct law enacted by the legislature last winter for the regulation of the saloon business provides that no obstructions may be put in saloon windows. Since the cold weather set in and the windows of the saloons were covered by frost, According to a Sioux City dispatch, some of. the ardent prohibitionists have been raising objections to this condition and want the officials to insist that the windows be kept clear. At two o'clock in the morning the Log Cabin breeding stables at Clarinda, Owned by Hon. William Butler, were, discovered .tq be on lire. When discovered the fire had made such headway that it was with hard work the horses in th.e barn were gotten out, and as jt was one team of work horses -vyere cremated and one other animal oilito bad-Jy burned. It was only by hard work, also, that adjacent resi- 4en.pes were protected, there being - guite a strong wind blowing at the |4in.e. The loss to Mr. Butler is at $5,000, besides the several of havcl work expended in build' un the same, The insurance on *i>?°°- I* is thought lire was the work of an incendiavy.

It would be a fine route. A saloonkeeper purchased a prominent business corner at Hartley and put up a fine brick biiilding, investing sonic S3.000 in the plant, intending to run a saloon on a palatial scale. Opponents of the saloon, however, waited until the building was nearly completed, and then showed up a deed for a back lot within fifty feet of the Saloon site and refused permission to the operation of the saloon. Thus cornered, the projector of the obnoxious institution was compelled to give up, and he has gladly availed himself of bhe opportunity to sell to a banking institution. The State of Iowa vs. Lizzie Weston. accused of the murder of Patrick Finn, at Independence last September, is now on trial in that city. The story runs that Finn, a prosperous young farmer, and always bearing a good reputation, went to Weston's house late at night for immoral purposes. He was refused entrance, but persisted and was shot in self defense. Little credence is given to the story, it being generally believed that another party whom the Weston woman is shielding was at the house and did the shooting as well as robbed the body. The prosecution promises that the public will be treated bo sensational testimony. Farmers are cautioned against buying kerosene oil in Chicago, or any other place outside the state, and shipping it in without inspection. This :ias been done in a number of instances ;hat have come to the knowledge of jhe state board of health. The state oil inspector is after them and the deputies have been instructed to watch for these violators of the law. The Farmers have bought the oil by the jarrel and divided it up in a iieignbor- liood. They get it very cheap that ivay. avoiding part of the retailers' profit and the inspection fees, but they usually get a very losv grade of oil. it s to protect them against themselves that the inspectors are trying to present the farmers from bringing oil in without inspection. Heavy penalties ire provided by law for the importa- i ion of oil into the state without in- I spcctiou. j The following minute and accurate ] description of ex-Congressman Wai? j Butler, who so mysteriously disap- j peared recently, is given by hfa wife's Brother, Col. Ma'.t Stcdman, of Des Moines: Age 42 years; dark blue eyes: lair quite gray on side of head; combs lis hair straight back from forehead, not parted; has a small wart on back of neck, about where collar button should be; tip or end of. nose slightly bent to one side; left thumb nail has ridge down to knuckle, caused by cut; square build; weighs fUO, but looks about 180. Heavy mustache, slightly gray, which is grown down at sides below his mouth. Wore soft black hat, gray suit clothes, drab overcoat, leather shoes, with patent leather tips. If he had his watch it was a gold filled case, Roekford movement, No. 715,487. J. P. Parrott on face of dial. K. of P. charm on chain. Small hand for man ofhissize. Short neck. Always wears a turn-down collar. Carries gold pen in lower right hand vest pocket. One false tooth in upper jaw; was on red rubber plate. Much inclined to talk and argue political questions, especially for free silver and free trade. The life of Mr. Wilcox, wife of the jailer of Boone county, hangs by a thread. She was kicked and beaten by the jail birds who escaped from the county prison in Boone recently. The evening the prisoners escaped she was feeding them their supper. One villain broke through the door of his cell and knocked Mrs, Wi]cox down and then went to another cell, which contained "Deadshot" Smith, . the man who shot M'cCall at Ogden October 10, during the process of the county fair, and was behind the bars awaiting his trial for the deed. The escaped convict .succeeded in breaking down the cell door. When Mrs. Wiicox realised the gravity of the situation and regained her presence of mind she ran to Smith's cell to intercept the escaping prisoner. Smith beat her away and then kicked her several times in the stomach, and then with his partner escaped, and no trace could be found of either. At the time of receiving her in juries. Mrs. Wilcox was pregnant, and little hope is entertained of her recovery, Tho county officials have done all in their power to capture the fiends, and as soon .as Mrs. Wilcox's critical condition was ; made known considerable indignation burst forth from the citizens of the community, and the hard vengeance will be dealt out to the miscreants if caught. The fat man's joy. Tilden's patent shirt for fat men, Tilden, Pes Moines, Hanson's Radical coiigh cure. Immediate relief and cures when others fail. Two grandchildren of Christopher Cook, of Littleton, agcni 7 and 10, were drowned while skating near Otterville, six miles north of Independence. The bodies were recovered, A PCS Moines 'policeman surprised six safe crackers at wprk and nrod a half dozen shots without damage to anything. The robbers escaped, while the policeman quieted his nerves. State Fish Commissioner U, $. Re* layan ufiil ft deputy secured four violators of the Springs. fl\e fine? The horribly mutilated body of a man, jammed into a shipping case and hidden undef a sidewalk, was found in Chicago a few days since. Investigation proved lhat it was that of A. D. Barnes, janitor of the Hiawatha building. Search of the basement of that building showed that the milrder had taken place there, blood being'Smeared over many things -and the axe .with which the crime was committed being discovered. Robbery is supposed to have been the motive, atid the assistant janitor has been arrested. Charges are made that illegal New York City bonds to the extent of $!6,000,000 were issued during the Tweed regime and that the affair has ' been successfully hidden by the comptroller's office ever since. Aft investigation will take place. In the match between Billiafdists tves and Sliaeft'er at Chica.go Ives broke the balk line record twice the same evening. The highest; run was Captain Kolb, the populist who claims to be governor of Alabama, has issued a message to the legislature and the people. The most important matters are that he urges the legislature to enact election contest laws, and urges the tax collectors to delay collection of taxes ns long as possible, in order to keep money out of the hands of what he claims is the illegal administration. As the tax collectors in thirty-eight of the sixty-one counties are Kolbites it is seen that he may be supported by them and that serious trouble may result. A bill has been introduced in the Alabama legislature to prevent persons not regularly declared elected from taking the oath of office. This is aimed at Kolb, who declares he is governor of that state. The anticipated trouble over the inauguration of the governor of Alabama did not materialize. However Captain Kolb, the defeated populist candidate, who claims to have been counted out by fraud, and the rest of men on the populist ticket, were sworn in by a iustice of the peace at the same hour that ' Colonel Gates and those elected on his ticket were taking the oath at tho capitol. Kolb proceeded to the capitol and was about to make an address on the steps, bvit was warn-' ed not to and mounted a wagon and addressed the people. He declared he had been legally elected and would use every means to secure the position which belongcj to him. SEALERS SHOW ANXIETY. Canadian Fishers Expected More thmi Cleveland Kccommends. VICTORIA, B. C., Dec. .—President Cleveland's recommendation to congress to pay $425,000 practically in ftill settlement of the claims of Canadian sealers against the United States,causes anxious speculation. When it was in- officially stated some months ago that that amount would be paid it was understood to be merely for claims presented to the Paris tribunal out of the seism res in Behring sea during 1880, 1887 and 1889, there having been none in ISS8. About $400,000 was the amount of claims on this account, Canadian sealers fully expect to receive large sums for the loss of prospective profits throxigh exclusion under the modus vivendi, especially because for 1801, the first year of the arrangement, England advanced about $100,000 as indemnity. Claims of 1S93 and ]89: j ., which will be pressed against the Canadian and British governments, amount to considerably more' than 5500,000. Kx-Surgeon General Dangerously 111. WASHIXGTOX.

From using too inUch or too little, or because of the adulterants in thefn, bitter, salt, yellow ot heavy biscuits or cakes are frequently made. These adulterants are alsd injurious to health. All this trouble may be avdided by the use of the popular Royal Baking Powder. \Vhere this preparation is employed in the place of cream'of-tar- tar and soda, its perfect leavening power always insures light, flaky, digestable biscuit, cakes and pastry, thttt are perfectly wholesome and free from the impurities invariably present when the old raising preparations are employed. The Royal Baking Powder, we are informed by the most reliable scientists, is perfectly pure, being made from highly i-eflncd ingredients, .carefully tested, and so exactly proportioned and combined that it never fails to produce the best and uniform results. An additional advantage in its employment comes from the fact that bread or other food made with it may be eaten while hot without fear of indigestion oi 1 any unpleasant results, while being equally sweet, moist and grateful to the palate when cold.

WASHINGTON', Dec. 7 —Labor Commissioner Wright will have a conference; to-day with Chairman McGann of the house committee on labor. Representative Springer, author of the pending arbitration bill and Representative Erdman, who wrote the favorable report on the bill. They will go over the question of arbitration of strikes, with a view to outlining a program for immediate action in congress. Mr. Wright's experience in tho presidential commission which recently investigated the Pullman strike is depended on to go give practical form to plan of national arbitration. It has been urged theoretically, but the report of the commission, based on inquiry and experience, recommends federal arbitration as the surestjremedy against labor agitations and strikes. It had been hoped that President Cleveland would in his message give specific approval to the plan of arbitration recommended by the strike commission, but he confined himself to an approval of the work of the cominission.
