i:lW £ « PH?>'*' Algana Republican* Henry Wallace has been dusted as r and treasurer of the toWa Homestead. Ed Wadswofth, one of Fontanelle*s ttest hardware merchants, lias made an assignment. The Marshalltown glucose wortas nave shut down, throwing 400 tnen out of employment. Elsie Hall, aped 91, died at Jefferson. She was one of the earliest pioneer women of central Iowa. Mrs. Samuel Anderson, who was 6« norribly butchered at Independence by her insane husband nearly two weeks ago, has died. Rev. Dr. Dennis Murphy., a. former Keokuk pastor and well known Iowa, Methodist minister, died suddenly of apoplexy at West Liberty. The residence of C. W. Cook, seven miles north of Odebolt, was totally destroyed by fire, the occupants barely escaping with their lives. Loss, about $20,000. A blanket mortgage of $25,000 was recently placed on Clinton's only Protestant city of the dead, Sprmgdale cemetery, by the corporation owning the unsold lots. Minnie Hoeft, the young girl arrested at Creston for stealing 816 from D. J. Miller, was tried in the Union county district court and sentenced to the reform school by Judge Towner. The body of A. Hitter was found in his house a few miles east of Charles •City. He was a bachelor and lived on charity. He had probably been dead from freezing and starvation nearly one week. John Alexander, aged 78 years, died in Osceola. Deceased had been a resident of the locality before it was a town and for nearly forty years has "been a large property owner, both in town and surrounding lands. Horace Gage, claim agent for the Burlington, Cedar Eapids & Northern, is authority for the statement • that the Chicago & North %vestern has bought the Winona & Southwestern and will extend it from Osage to Mason. The story from Albia, printed in Chicago and other papers about the finding of a stone giant 20 feet long near Centerville, is pronounced a "fake" of the first water, there being absolutely not the slightest foundation to it. In the case of the state of Iowa against L. E. White, convicted in the Warren county district court for forgery, the defendant was sentenced to one year in the penitentiary, but •will appeal his case to the supreme court. Last November, D. M. Chiselm was run over and killed by a Toledo, Peoria & Western train at Keokuk and his 2-year-old son hurt. The son, by his mother, has now brought suit against the railroad for $2,000 personal injuries damage. A remarkable phenomenon of the recent cold spell was a snow storm at Burlington without a single cloud in the oky. The mercury was 16 below zero. The moisture in the air congealed into snow flakes, causing the phenomenon. It is roughly estimated that over 200 individuals and corporations are subject to the income tax in Dubuque county. Blanks have been received and are being sent out to suspected parties. Judge Shiras made the first application. In the federal court at Keokuk, Granville A. Cuppie, W. B. Cuppie, Mrs. Jennie M. Egington and W. E. Egington were arraigned on charge of making fraudulent pension affidavits. They were bound over in the sum of $2,000 'each. The large livery stable of Ed. Crandell, of Beacon, was destroyed by fire at 1 o'clock a, HI, Eight horses were , burned to a crisp, and the carriages, hacks, sleighs, robes and repairs are a total loss. The property was partially insured. Loss, $7,000. Robert Hunt, a farmer living about three miles southeast of Estherville, was surprised when he went to his barn to find his hired hand, named Sut' top, a young Englishman, hanging to a beam in the barn. It was a case of suicide, und no cause is assigned. An Iowa City dispatch says: The old building in which the Iowa territorial legislature held its sessions on removing to Iowa City from Burlington in 1840, has been destroyed by fire. More accurately speaking, it was only half of the historic structure, as part of it was torn down a few years ago to make room for a brick block- It was occupied by Frank Meyers, cabinet maker, and J. Dundore, wagon maker. Loss, $3,000; insurance, $300.

The paper on the walls caught fire and the building was .soon -a mass of flames, and the stock of millinery in an adjoining roota was badly damaged. A woman and her 14-mottths-old baby girl were received at the Anamosa prison :a few days ago from Butler .county. Mrs. Boieheister is her name and she is sent for five months for forgery. She has a pretty baby, and this makes two babies now in the female department, the first one being Shorn 40 Mrs. Evans while in prison, who is serving a fifteen years' sentence ior murder. Her husband is serving •eighteen years for complicity in the same crime. He is permitted to go over and see Ms wife and baby once a John Weimier, a United States prisoner from Griswold, incarcerated in the county jail at Council Bluffs' for bootlegging, lost his mind and is now a ra-viBg maniac, shouting, yelling, tearing his clothes into shreds and making life in general unpleasant for his fellow prisoners. His mental trouble was induced by his confinement in jail, being the first time he was arrested. The jailer and Sheriff Hazen are at somewhat of a loss as to what course to pursue. They d,are not order him before the insane commissioners, because he is a United States court prisoner. The matter was reported by the sheriff to United States Marshal Bradley, who in turn has reported to Judge Woolson, of Keokuk. An Anamosa dispatch says: J. W. Phillips, the Shell Rock banker, who came to the prison alone and gave himself up to the warden, came down to the prison two weeks before he gave himself up and told the deputy how he was situated and that he was thinking of serving a sentence here and wanted to look the institution over. He was shown all through the prison and liked it so well he went home and released his bondsmen and came back and began his sentence, and says the only thing he objects to is the bars and stripes. An effort will be made to get him a pardon. He is a brother-in-law of Deputy United States Marshal Been. He is the second man in the history of the Anamosa prison 'to come to the pen alone and without some attendant. r. Sioux City dispatch: W. A. Kifer, ex-treasurer of Woodbury county, who, it is alleged, was short in his accounts by reason of retaining fees of his office not allowed by the supervisors, and who is under indictment for im- bezzlement, as well as called on to defend civil suits brought to recover the amount of the alleged shortage, has made a proposition to pay the county $2,000 and all court costs to date, provided the cases are dismissed. The proposition has been accepted. The Farmers' Loan and Trust company, which holds over $100,000 of the county warrants tied up by injunc- tioiis secured by the citizens' committee on the ground that they are fraudulent, has offered to stand a loss of $10,000 on the warrants if the injunction be dismissed and the warrants bonded, and to drop suits brought to bond them, The proposition has been accepted by the citizens' committee. Martin Johnson, a farmer residing east of Dows, was awakened by a rap on his door at 11 o'clock at night. Opening it, a revolver was thrust in his face by one of four masked robbers, who demanded his money. He tried to slam the door shut, but they forced their way in, when he retired to his bedroom and tried to barricade the door with the bureau; but they broke the door and succeeded in getting jn there also, although he cut the largest one twice in the face with a pocket knife. Unable to cope with the four, he broke the window and jumped out, the robbers shooting after him, and ran as he was — bareheaded and bare* footed, clad only in shirt and pants. When he reached the nearest neighbor's, half a mile away, the robbers went past, northward, and although his feet and hands were badly frozen he did not stop to rouse them;.but, anxious for his family, he went back home, The robbers did not secure any money at all. Constable Wright, of Webster City, went out with a posse and tracked the robbers several miles, overhauling his men within three miles of Clarion. A newly born infant was found in Charles City "wrapped w a cloth with papers. No clue as yet to the parents, J, E, Knots was found dead in his farm 'residence near New Virginia recently, Ml'- K »ots was the oldest son of I}. W.

Neb., hate been released on $2,000 bail each, the judge holding that the evidence was not sufficient to hold then! lof murder in the first degree. The dispatches announce that the Japs halre captured Wei-Hai-Wei. The Chinese loss is estimated at 2,000. A sensation has been created at San Francisco, by the discbvery that the will of the late Jas. G, Fair has been stolen from the clerk's office. There is no cltte to it whatever. This will seriously complicate the contest of the will. The rails on the Vandalia road near Coatesville, Ind., spread and wrecked a passenger train which Was running fast to make up lost time. Several cars Were thrown from the track, and two people were killed and thirty-two injured. eARTHUUAKE CAUSES A PANIC, Inhabitants of Mexico llni-ry from Their Homes. CITY OF MEXICO, Feb 2.—Since the great earthquake shock of Nov. U2, which caused the loss of fifteen lives in this city and destroyed thousands of dollars 1 worth of property, a reign of terror has prevailed in the towns of Jamiltepee and Tuxtepec, in the state of Oaxaca. The churches and houses are a heap of ruins and the inhabitants have nearly all fled to neighboring hamlets. The eruption of some volcano, presumed to exist in subterranean form close by, is momentarily expected. Last night earthquake shocks were felt in many places in the state Oaxaco, Tequisixtian, Tiaxiaco, Juxtlahuaco, Tiapa and Alcozuaca. a gff * tomf&USlotie* 1te Mftfee* fttftefthi ftemft*tc Abtfat GoKOfflAttA, Feb >.— The Chined peace envoys hate arrived at Kobe and will go to Hiroshima by train yet- terday, accompanied by Mr. Johti W. Foster, ex-secretary of state of the United States, who is acting as thei? adviser, and Councillor Wo. The latter, replying to ft question as to the natui-e of the proposals the Chinese entoys were insttiict- ed to iubmit to Japan, said that their nature might be inferred froih the disastrous condition of China. Gen. Nogi reports from Styutsai under date of Jan. 28 that the Chinese are near Yang Kao. lie adds that the Japanese cavalry scouts have prevented the ehemy from proceeding beyond Lao Peng. The Chinese have ad« vanced 'their whole line. Dispatches received here from Chemulpo, Corea, say that the Japanese and 'Corean troops defeated the Toiig Hak Jan. 8, in the vicinity of Cheng Hiang. The Tong Haks lost heavily. Troops have left Lio Chow in order to attack the rebels at Kbshin. AFTER NON-RESlDfiNTSi " BtflK IN A COLLISION.

Jewelers Must 1'ny More for Gold. NKW YORK. Feb 2.—A number of out-of-town banks have applied to their correspondents in this city to ship gold to them in small amounts. Manufacturers of articles in which gold is used have been obtaining from the sub-treasury larger amounts of gold bars than usual in view of the placing of a premium thereon and this has led the sub-treasury to increase the premium of jewelers' gold bars at the assay office from 1-20 to 1-10 of 1 per centum. Stories ot unicorn or tuo ROTTERDAM, Feb. 2.— Interviews with Capt. Gordon of the steamer Crathie and with the second officer of that vessel seem to leave no room for doubt that it was the steamship which ran into and sank the Elbe. That the Crathie was in collision with n large steamer is admitted by both the officers. She is badly damaged. IOWA PA * REPORT. DES MOINES, Jan. 28, 1895: The Taylor Newell Co., of Des Moines, has been allowed a patent for a trade mark for pantB, consisting of the words, "The Boys Friend." A correspondent in Hardin county, asks "Can an inventor sell territory before a patent is allowed?" We answer, yes. A good way is to take some earnest money to bird the bargain and a note for the balance of the consideration, payable when a patent is allowed. Such a transaction is in the natvre of a quit claim and legal. C. Hohensbehn, of Waverly, has been allowed a patent for a centrifugal cream separator, for which he claims several points of superiority over prior inventions in this line. He will begin the manufacture and sale of the separators at once. E. P. Fox, of Gamer, la., has been allowed a patent for an ingenious grading and ditching apparatus adapted for moving wheeled scrapers forwardly and backwardly over the ground surface. The apparatus is light and may be easily transported by a team of horses, and effectively takes the place of the 50 to 75 ton steam shovels now in common use, Mr, Fox has made draining ditches in Hancock county twentj r -flve miles in length and expects to use his invention in the Hennepin canal. Four U, S. patents were issued to Iowa inventors on the 22nd inst. Printed copies of the drawings and specifications of any one patent sent to any address for 25 cents.

The dispatches from Germany show that the hews caused the greatest excite' ment and sorrow, most all the officers and crew of the lost steamer and a majority of the passengers being Germans As time wore on it was apparent that the first reports of-tho sinking of the steamer had minimized the horrors of the disaster. Many dispatches were forwarded to Mans Luis to the commander of the Crathie asking him if he had rescued any of the Elbe's passengers. Up to a late hour, however, no answers were received to these dispatches, and the belief grew that the Crathie after the accident had rather Bought its own safety than to rescue the people on the doomed Elbe. From the details now at hand it is learned that the Elbe was proceeding along at its usual rate of speed and keeping the ordinary lookouts. The night was dark, but there was no gale. Suddenly the forward lookout on the Elbe reported' to the officer on deck that the lights of a steamer were close aboard over the port bow. Be.fore the course of the Elbe could be changed, so as to sheer it off from the approaching steamer, the latter struck it just about the engine room, going through the plates as though they were pasteboard and sticking its nose almost completely through the hull of the Elbe. For a time the Crathie held the Elbe on its nose, but then its engines were reversed and- it backed out of the aperture it had made. As it did so the water rushed into the Elbe in a torrent and it immediately began to settle. The officer in charge of the ship at once saw that it was doomed and gave hurried orders to clear away the lifeboats for launching. Three of the boats were cleared and lowered, but one of them shortly after it got clear of the steamer capsized, and it is thought that all occupants were drowned. The first boat contained the third officer, chief engineer, purser and twenty of the passengers. These are the persons who were picked up by the fishing smack and taken to Lowestoft. Nearly all the passengers were asleep at the time, but many of them were awakened by the shock, slight as it was. They could Jie'ar,the rush of the rapidly inflowing':' water, and,' with cries of terror, sought to make their way to the upper deck. The steamer being loaded by the stern water naturally rushed aft, and this allowed many of the passengers forward to reach the deck. In the case of the saloon passengers, however, the result was fatal. As they rushed from their state rooms into the 'saloon they were met by the torrent, against which it was impossible for them to make headway. They were, caught up and swept aft toward the cockpit, where they were probably, drowned before the ship foundered, Altogether about fifty of the passengers reached the deck, where the wildest confusion existed. Wild rushes were made for the boats, but the, terrible excitement prevailing im:.peeled the efforts of those who were trying to clear them away, Many heartrending' scenes were witnessed between parents and chil- di'en in the few moments precad- ing the sinking ot the vessel, The cry was raised on the doomed vessel for the women and children to go over to the other side of the steamer, away from the port side, in which was the great gaping hole caused by the Crathie, The half fainting women and terror stricken children hurried to the starboard side, but they ha,d scarcely reached the .boats when the huge ve,3- sel lifted'its bows'high in tlie air and then slowly and silently sank, stern foremost, bener^h the waves, taking with it its human . freight. Barely twenty minutes elapsed between the collision and the sinking of the steamer, A heavy sea, was running and the wind, which was from the east spnth'ea'st, was bitterly cold. The small boat containing tlie sur* vivors tossed about until 11 o'clock in the morning. The survivors were nearly frozen, having hardly any clothing, and their sufferings were in tense, Eventually the Wild Flower saw the signals and. bore dosvn op the boat ill 6< IftW i.—n pmr§, was oft its ^ay with fifty saloon fjas6« steerage passengers, and 180.

The occupants of the first boat Were picked up by a couple of fishing smacks and Were taken to LoWestof t, where thej have been landed. It has been found difficult to get the officers of the ste&m* ship to make any statement until they have commtinicjated with the agents of the Elbe, and the passengers whd have been rescued are as yet too ex 1 cited to tell anything but rambling stories. ; But from what can be gatb> ered but a short time must have elapsed between the collision and the sinking of the Elbe. From what one of the rescued men says the disaster must have been one of the most terrible in the history of such catastrophes. The whole of the passengers are understood to have been below and asleep at the time the collision occurred and nearly all of them must have been either drowned below or have met death while seeking to rush vipon the deck. f .*-'!• tlst of the Nineteen Persons Saved. .

The wide-spread interest that is 'felt' in the career of Napoleon at this time is very clearly shown by the fact that of the November and December numbers of the Century, containing the' opening chaptors'of Prof. Sloane's new Life, more copies were sold than of , corresponding issues for several years , past, The January number is already • ,. out of print, and a large increasie is necessary in the regular February edi" v tion. - ' / Probably no other paper has .more ,a largely influenced public opinion " jjj " 0 America, through the views that Ijayq \ <(-' been expressed and the reforms^ ^ftt •/ have been advocated in its columns, than has Harper's during the thirty'eight y ears, of \ istence; and its reeent -politig" cles and signed and' unsigned als have been conspicuous for and for constructive as. well as de§t tive criticism.
