A Clinton dispatch says: The base of operation of the Ray Elliot case has been transferred to this city, a number of depositions having been taken in the habeas corpus case. Burke formerly lived here and his neighbors gave him an unsavory reputation at the hearing. He is said to have cruelly abused the boy Ray Burke, Ray Elliot was brought here from Marengo, and witnesses who Imew the Burke boy say positively they are not the same. } Council Bluffs has a sensation in a suit just brought by a woman named Mamie Rollins against J.

A recent issue of the Building and Loan Record, a monthly journal, with Chicago offices at No. 112 Dearborn street, and Des Moines headquarters also, contained a bitter attack upon State Auditor C. G. McCarthy. Mr. McCarthy's attention was called to it and proceedings for criminal libel are likely to follow. Mr, McCarthy is at the head of a leading building and loan association* W. S. Richmond, who controls the Record, was the man^ ager of the Union Building and Savings Association of Des Moines, for which a receiver was recently appointed. Following the failure of this company, the state executive council, of which the auditor is a member, appointed Miles Dawson, of Chicago, and ex-Governor Larrabee to examine all similar concerns in the state. James Thompson, one of Davenport's wealthiest citizens, died at his home in that city, aged 08 years. He came to Davenport from Pennsylvania in 1856, kept a livery stable and handled real estate, and by judicious investments made money rapidly till finally, for years, he was accounted probably the wealthiest man in Iowa. He was president of the First National bank in Davenport for years, and held stock in dozens of local and Iowa enterprises, besides vast quantities of land in Iowa and the west. The panic of 1893 brought heavy strains upon him and hastened his decline. A guardian was appointed for him three months ago. His estate of over $3,000,000 is far more chan sufficient to meet the obligations accumulated against it. He leaves a wife, two sons and a daughter. Ex-Senator James G. Fair, of California, died at San Francisco a few days ago. He leaves a fortune estimated at $40,000,000. Among the bequests are the following to • residents of Iowa: To Fair's sister, Mary Anderson and husband and children, who live at Ida Grove, Iowa, $250,000 is bequeathed to be divided equally among them.

To Mary J. and Lundy, daughters of testator's deceased br6ther, Thomas Fair, and children, who reside at Correct! on ville, Iowa, $10, OOP is bequeathed. Another $10,000 is willed to the family of James H. Fair, Ida Grove, who is a son of deceased's brother. Thomas Fair. At Cedar Rapids a few days ago R. C. Mattlock, manager of the telephone exchange, started out to make the quarterly collections. He was on his way to the office after completing his day's work, and when near the rye mill he was suddenly confronted by two negroes who drew revolvers and commanded him to "hold up," which he did.

It is announced that 322 fishermen belonging to Hull, Grimsby and Yarmouth were lost in the recent terrific gale which swept over England. ' Assistant Cashier Sparks,, of the Gin* cittnati postoffice, announced to the officials a few days ago that two burglars had brokett into his room, slugged him and stolen $86t. Later In the sweat box he confessed that he had done the work himself. A cablegram has been received from Antwerp that the Belgian government has prohibited the importation of live cattle from the United States. This closes the ports of all continental Europe to American cattle. Mexico reports several earthquake shockis on the 1st, considerable damage being done in the City of Mexico. Levi P. Morton became governor of New York on the 1st, William L, Strong became mayor of New York city, and Gov. Rich, of Michigan, took the oath of office. The recent cold snap, which is said to have been the coldest the south has experienced since 1835, has done immense damage to the orange crops in Florida, the loss to this crop alone being $5,000,000. Other fruits are badly damaged. The Delavan house, at Albany, N. Y., burned recently, and though the guests managed to escape with injuries resulting from jumping to the pavement, seventeen employes are supposed to have met death in the conflagration. The grand jury at Chicago declined to indict Alderman Powers, who is charged with negotiating for a bribe, on the ground that the reporter who took the stenographic notes could not see the alderman. At an entertainment at Silver Lake, Ore., a lamp was knocked down and the oil took fire. No one seemed able to cope with the flames and a panic ensued, during which forty persons were trampled or burned to death, and many injured. t IOWA PATENT OFFICE REPORT. ««« at JMf*S86!r Cf*f, Mo., Jan. assembling of the house ol tat^teft yesterday eleetioii bi offietfl wa& pfMeefled with without ttottl- nating speeches of other delays.

After leaving him they returned and compelled him to take off his overcoat, which they took, together with a valuable gold watch, and chain. Then giving him a punch in the side they disappeared up through the yards, Owing to the darkness and his fright Mattlock is unable to give an accurate description of the men. The police have absolutely no clue and it is probable they* will never be captured. Ex-Co ngrossman Walt H. Butler, whose disappearance from Oelwein some time ago created a state-wide sensation, has been found in Indianapolis, and is now at home. Butler called on several people in Indianapolis, who reported his whereabouts to the papers, and investigation showed that he was in the employ of a book publishing company as a canvasser. In an interview Butler said he knew nothing as to how he came to leave Oelwein and could tell nothing as to what happened until he heard the brakeman call Indianapolis a week later, Even then he did not think that his wife and friends were worrying about bimi but seemed to feel that all was well, except that he had lost his watch and K. of P, charm. He saw an advertisement for canvassers an4 secured work. He had been doing well and was making money.

The machine was advantageously operated in the Mount Broom Factory, and is a "Hurl Stemmer and Sorter." Lee obtained a patent for the same invention in 1893, Tilden filed an application for a patent in June, 1893, and has proven beyond a doubt that he is the first original inventor, as required to invalidate Lee's patent and to secure a pioneer patent for his pioneer invention.

' MAY END PLAN FOR PEACE. Unless China Hastens Negotiations New Complications May Come. WASHINGTON, Jan. 4.—It is the belief of officials in a position to know the status of affairs between Japan and China that Japan will declare the ^eace negotiations off unless China hastens them. There is increasing irritation on the part of Japan as to • the delays in presenting definite peace proposals. Already the Japanese government is inclining to a unanimous demand of the native press make far greater demands than were contemplated when the peace negotiations began. There are evidences that Japan is preparing for an aggressive military movement, calculated to impress China and the plenipotentiaries with Japan's ability to increase the advantage already secured. Income Tax Appropriation May Fasa. WASHINGTON, Jan. 4.—Senator Cockrell, chairman of the senate committee on appropriations, said yesterday he would probably call the committee together soon after the reconvening of congress, and that the urgent deficiency bill which contains the provision for an appropriation to put the income tax into operation would be taken up as soon as practicable. Mr. Cockrell is satisfied this provision will pass. Atlanta, Ga.,,<3<5tfttituti6H.1 AQftf thejtest knowft iftwteffc and fawners of Nortti Carolina Stands Cot Isaac A^xifc! of Greefaville.

Chicago Board of Trade, CHICAGO, Jan. 4 .-The following table the range ot quotations on the Reforms to go Into Effect Wlta Beginning of the : Now . Year. WASHINGTON, Jan. 4.—Several important plans for improving the postal service have just become operative. The principal one is the general reduction of ' postage rates for Cape Colony, Free State and all other countries not embraced in the. universal postal union. Under the provisions of the new scheme all countries will now enjoy uniform rates except Canada and' Mexicoi for which special rates have long been in vogue. The change results in a reduction of rates for ordinary mails from 10 to 5 cents on a half ounce and for newspapers 'from 2 to 1 cent for two ounces. The new arrangement for facilitating foreign mails from Boston, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Chicago and St. Louis has also gone into operation. This allows the present system of having the regular mails handled and way- billed at the New York office, but also provides for Bending additional mails by later trains, which leave in'time to ; make direct connections with''the steamers, messengers being stationed at the depots to carry the mail direct to the vessels. A change in the series of the newspaper and periodical stamps will go into operation this week, involving general changes in denominations and colors, though maintaining the general char* acteristics, The new denominations are 1, 8, 3, B, 10, 25 and 50 cents, and 83, 85, 810, 830, 850 and 8100. The de nominations continued are 4, 6, 8, It, 24, 36, 48, 60, 73, 84, 96 and 93 cents and MA1KB. ( ,..™j Augusta,.
