Five car loads of coal and one car of miscellaneous provisions were shipped from Ottumwa to the Nebraska ouffer- crs. More are bemg arranged, especially coal from neighboring mines. Miss Ivy Kelly, aged 18, of Davenport, •was found dead in bed at the home of Mrs. George Morris at Clinton, with whom she lived as a companion. It is thought to be a case of suicide.

The board of supervisors has ordered the township assessors of Dubuque county to assess the saloons as provided by the mulct law, which means a tax of §600 on every saloon in the county and a perpetual lien upon all the real estate and personal property held by the saloons. W. M. Wilson, chief clerk of the commission to audit the claims of the Des Moines river land settlers to the 5210,000 indemnity appropriated by congress at the last session, is at Fort Dodge to begin work. The settlers are very eager to have their claims adjusted, as most of them have spent their lives in litigation over these -claims. The Sioux City citizens and tax-payers' committee, which has been prominent in the prosecution of the boodle and removal from office cases against the county officers of Woodbury county, announces through its attorneys, that it has discovered gross irregularities in the management of the poor fund by S. B. Belfrage, overseer of the poor, and that it is the intention of the committee to commence an action to remove him from office, A remarkable coincidence of death is reported from Eldora and community. Thrf e pioneers of Iowa lie died, two in Eldora and one near Whitten, ten miles southeast. Two of these, "Wm. kockard, of Whitten, and J. J. Donovan, of Eldora, were upwards of 80 years old, and S. W. Van Vporhis nearly 60. All of these gentlemen were prominent in business and relig- jqws circles and were citizens always instrumental in the uplifting of hur jnanity and the pillars of church and state, A St. Louis dispatch says: A tall young ?nan with piercing blaoH eyes, Jight mustache and an abundance of ' wayy hair, has. been arrested on BUS* f -picion of being one of a trio who held Tap the 0., B. &.Q. train $bput a. week - £ffO between Chillicothe and Ottumwa g,pd robbed the express car qf about $§0,000.

Just as the train was leaving Chillicothe, two men with heavy black masks on, climbed in the end door of the express car. One held up the three occupants of the car with a revolver While the other tied their hands and then robbed the safe with the kevs taken from the expressman. ' It is not certain how much they secured, but it may be any place between $1,500 and $8,000. The men waited until the train slowed up for the Milwaukee crossing, then jumped and crossed the river on the ice. J. W. Luke, George W. Perkins, and Peter A. Dey, composing the state board of railway commissioners, have filed two reports on the application of the railroads for an increase in freight rates. The majority report is signed by Commissioners Perkins and Luke, who give as their reasons for denying the increase that the present rates were not shown to be unremunerative, and that railway losses have been heavier in intarstate freight than Iowa business. Commissioner Dey, in the minority report, holds that rates should be raised almost as much as the railroads asked, and says he has always thought Iowa rates were too low. Judge Shiras, of the United State court at Dubuque, handed down his decision in the proceedings of E. H. Hubbard, assignee of the Union Loan and trust Company, vs. J. Kennedy Tod & Co., of New York, brought in the United States circuit court at Sioux City, wherein llubbard sought to recover from Tod & Co. the Sioux City & Northern bonds and the Sioxix City & Northern stock as collateral for ,P, loan of $1,500,000.

There is much excitement in West Point and vicinity over a discovery of natural gas made while digging a well in the northern part of the town. When the workmen were down seventy- five feet they were astonished on withdrawing the auger to feel a strong rush of gas from the hole. The owner of the well, Wm. Link, was notified and proceeded to investigate. He applied a match to the stream of foul femelling- air and was^ astonished to'see it go off with a roar of flame, taking his whiskers with it. The flame burned with a strong roar for two or three hours. It is the intention of land owners to give the discovery the fullest investigation and if there is anything in it they will fully develope it. Erick Anderson went to the icehouse at Algona to secure a job. Messrs. Winkle and Henderson were taking up a tree in the timber close by and Anderson went over where they were and asked about work. Mr. Winkle told him he Would remember him when he commenced cutting up ice. Winkle then went to work at his tree, Anderson standing close by. The tree was taken up with a large amount of dirt attached to the roots and was taken up by means of a jim pole and capstan. When the horses started up the pole gave way at the bottom, and in falling it struck Anderson on the head. He lived only a few hours, never regaining consciousness. He leaves a wife and six children, Deceased was about 45 years old, • A Sioux City dispatch says: Rev. J. W. Mahood, pastor of the Whitfield M. E, church, has commenced a crusade against the houses of ill fame after the manner of Dr. Parkhurst. He went to a well known brothel on one of the principal streets of the city at night, and found five women and four men there, He then appeared in police court as prosecuting witness against these five .women, charged with keeping a house of prostitution. He gave testimony as to what he saw there, which, while; not as sensational as that given by Dr, Parkhurst in New York on a similar- occasion, was sufficient to prove the character of the house. While he was present one woman pro-posed to do the feat of standing on her head, but was prevented from doing so by another woman, There were a large number of friends of the preacher present at police court when the case was called, but the attorneys for the woman insisted on the room • being cleared. The police have refused to interfere in these houses and a general crusade is likely agains^ them.

Late advices from Honolulu say a revolution broke out on the 6th, which resulted in the death of ex-Commis- sionei* Carter and at least twelve of the revolutionists. About 2.000 rebels Were placed under arrest and Whett the steamer left the government had succeeded in putting down the uprising. The ex-queen's residence Was searched and a quantity of arms"connscated. It is said the Chinese emperoi' has called for the heads of all the defeated generals. Attorney General Olney has prepared a bill providing for arbitration of all labor controversies, and it • has been introduced in the house. President Casimir-Perier, of the French republic, tendered his resignation on the 15th, giving as his reason that the vote which overthrew the cabinet was only an incident of the fight being made against Casimir- Perier. On the 17th the French national assembly convened and elected M. Francois Feux-Faure to succeed Casimir-Perier as president. M. Faure is a member of the chamber of depxities for Seine-Inferiem'e. He was born in Paris January 30, 1841. He was under secretary of state for the cplorrles in the ministries of Gum'b'e'tta. Ferry, Brisson and Tirard and was one of the vice presidents of the chamber of deputies preceding the present one. He hfis'been a republican deputy for about forty years and has served on several of the most important committees of the chamber. Fire occurred in the Butte Hardware Company's ware-house at Butte, Mont., in which giant powder was stored. The fire department was at work on the fire when an explosion took place, killing a number of people. While efforts were being made to remove the dead and wounded, a second and later a third explosion occurred. The entire fire department was wiped out, including the chief and all the horses. Three policemen were among the killed, who at least number seventy-five. Plate glass was broken all over the city and the damage to property is enormous. The powder in the warehouse was in violation of law. It is the greatest explosion in the history of the west. The French cabinet has resigned because of defeat in the chamber o deputies. Between five and six thousand em- ployes of the Brooklyn trolley railway are on'a strike for $2.00 for ten hours work. They threaten to prosecute the officials for violation of the ten-hour law unless their demands are complied with. Bill Cook, the notorious Oklahoma outlaw, has been captured on a ranch in New Mexico. He confessed his identity, but says he never killed anybody; that many crimes are charged to him that he never committed and that the only robbery he ever committed vas that of the Frisco, at Red Fork, ast July.

HODBO Committee ttt Washington Discusses the Company's Proposals. WASHINGTON, Jan. IP.—The house committee on Pacific roads yesterday considered the propositions for a settlement made recently by a representative of the Union Pacific. Francis L. Stettson explained more fully the views of the company. From the tenor of the talk it seemed improbable that nny radical changes, from the plan in the Reilly bill will be made, although minor amendments are under consideration. The company's proposal that the. rate of interest be reduced from 3 to 3 per cent did not seem to find much favor. The Reilly bill pi-ovides that in the event of default of any payment for ninety days the entire debt matures, but an amendment was added making it operative at the option of the secretary of the treasury. Halt' an hour was consumed in debating a proposal, that the government assume the first mortgage of the Union Pacific, which with the application of the sinking fund to its payment so far as it will go leaves a.debt of 5120,000,000. It was argued from the company's standpoint that the company will be obliged to pay 0 per cent on this while the government could carry it at 2 per cent or 2J4 and the saving in interest be applied directly to the government debt. the St. Lwte, Mo.

Strange to say wfe both suffered from the •sfthie ailment, although toy wife's' condi* ti6n was rafloh worse thafi> mifle. Neithef of us could sleep at night; we had sharp, shootihg piins in onr arms,sides titld limbs, and a continual soreness all over the body. What we suffered from was nothing more or less thun rheumatism, At timfes my wife had to crawl Upstairs on hOf hands and knees, and as for me, I Would at night twitch and jerk despite my utmost efforts to control myself. We suffered the torture of thedamtied. ..•._•. / "But in three Weeks the palii begaii to leave Us, My case not being as severe as mv wife's 1 soon got well, but It took nearly tliree months before Mrs. Ferguson could say she was entirely free from rheumatic pains. Of Course I recommend Dr. Williams' Pink Pills to all my friends." ., Mr. Ferguson's words are indorsed by T, A. Campbell, an iron worker living on Ghouteau n venue. He too had been afflicted With rheumatism contracted from working in a damp foundry. He said: "One day I was seized with chills and my doctor ordered me to remain in bed for at least several days. I began to lose my previously good appetite, a depression of spirits, lack of ambition, a tired feeline and oven loss of memory followed. I couldn't keep my feet warm and my usual ruddy complexion had given way to a sallow hue. "With my family to support I couldn't afford to be idle. I .struggled against my feelings as best I could, but the boat I could do, even with the doctor's help, was very little. "Hearing of Dr. Williams'Pink Pills I determined to try them. The effects were nothing short of marvelous. They made mo well, and as a preventive I take them regularly. They're the best medicine I know of, and as such my friends hear me speak of tuem." _ Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People contain all the elements necessary to give new life and richness to the blood and restore shattered nerves. They are an unfailing specific for such diseases as locomotor ataxia, partial paralysis, St. Vitus' dance, sciatica, rheumatism, neuralgia, nervous' headache, the after effects of la grippe, palpitation of the heart, pale and sallow complexions and all forms of weakness, cither in male or female. They may be had of nil druggists, or direct from the Dr. Williams' Medicine company, Schenectady, N. Y., for 50 cents per box, or six boxes for «2.60. .

It. —At 4 o'clock yesterday fire broke out, on the ground floor of 13 West Riddle street and before its discovery had much headway that escape for the sleeping inmates was rendered a haa-* ardous undertaking. When the fire* men and neighbors reached the scene Thomas Wh. itridge, a broker, and his young wife appeared at the window of the second»story front room, Mrs, Whitridge was unconscious, Her husband, holding her in his arms, leaned far out of the second story window and made a frantic grab and spring for the ladder which the fireman had run up, HO missed the ladder and both were dashed tp the pavement, tyrs, Whitridge was instantly killed and her husband died a few win;ites. later, The other occupants escaped uninjured, Retires Frqin yubUc l/t{3, LONPOH, Jnn, 19.—The Puke of Argyll, who fainted on Tuesday night while addressing a meeting at Ulas- gow, has announced, his retirement from public life and in so doing has cancelled »U his engagements. / ' • p ' ' Want Two Days for Talk of Kicks, WASHINGTON, Jan. la.—The house jndiciai-y cpmmibtee has decided to take two days—Saturday and Monday —for debate on the Ricks impeachment resolution in the house. While there is a possibility, according to members who oppose impeachment, that Mr. Broderick's minority report may be substituted for the majority report in Friday's committee meeting, some of Mr. Rick's friends • declare he would prefer to obtain the verdict of the whole house rather than have the charges stifled by a bare majority vote in the committee. Mr. Bailey thinks the senate should be able to dispose of the matter this session. The case is so simple, he says, it should consume but a few days. Bryan's Proposal to Guard Gold. ' WASHINGTON, Jan. 18.—Representative Bryan (clem,, Neb.) has introduced a bill to provide for the coinage of the seigniorage.
