AtdtttTA, IOWA, Algona Republican, SfcAfefe, AttJONA, IOWA Mallory & Heggbladt, large general Snerchandise dealers at Alta, have as^ Signed, Liabilities about $32,000, as- fiets $27,000. President Yetzer* of the Cass county bank, is still in jail at Atlantic, as Thomas Meredith has withdrawn his name from the bond. The Buncombe stucco mills at Fort "Dodge burned a few nights since. Loss. $30,000; insurance, $16,000. The plant will be replaced at once. Albert Liddy, foreman and partner in the Dubuque Cabinet Makers' Association, died from injuries received by a board flying from a saw he was operating. Kufus Johnson, aged 50, a well-to-do citizen of Clinton, was found in his room with his brains blown out. He still held the weapon in his hand. Ill health was the cause. Charles Campbell, a Northwestern fireman, slipped and fell from his engine near Bertram while it was running sixty miles an hour. He was instantly killed. Will Boyor, a teamster, while unloading corn from a wagon at Eldora, became faint and falling backwards on the frozen ground, struck on his head, fracturing his skull. His injuries may prove fatal. A jury at Clinton awarded B. H. Stockwell £8,000 damages for getting overheated last summer. Stockwell was a Northwestern fireman, and while doing duty last July became prostrated by heat, which resulted in paralysis He sued the company for $15,000. Albert Head, ex-speaker of the Iowa house of representatives, was taken violently ill at Panora a few days ago, and his, mother and brother were telegraphed for. He was taken to Jefferson, and at last accounts, although still weak, was improving, The floating debt of the city of Dubuque. amounting to $300,000, is held largely by Dubuque bankers in bonds and warrants bearing 0 and 7 per cent interest. The city is now in condition to make better terms and will ask the holders to make a better rate of interest, which will no doubt be accepted or outside parties will step in. It has been discovered that representatives of the Credits f ommutation Company of Sioux City are, in Chicago making an effort to get Phil^ Armour to come to that city and operate the large Silberhorn packing house, now standing idle. The Chicago Packing and Provision Company has a contract to operate it, and will do so unless a deal is made with Armour. E. C. Kelly, a dry goods merchant of Colfax, called a friend into his store and handed him a letter, and, grabbing a revolver, committed suicide by blowing out his brains. No reason can be assigned for the rash act, as his business was in good shape and his domestic relations are said to have been' pleasant. He was at the time suffering from a severe cold in the head and some say he was crazed by it. Burglars entered the-store of Von Ens & Co., at Moorland, gaining entrance through the rear door with the use of a crow-bar. Nearly $75 worth of goods were taken, consisting of caps, shoes, shirts, neckties, tobacco and cigars. Having satisfied themselves there, they also entered the saloon, making themselves quite at home, taking several bottles of whisky and a keg of beer. No clue was left which might lead to their discovery. Burglars entered the home of Charles Bodley, at Creston, while the family were out calling and stole about $100 worth of jewelry and other property. Among the articles stolen was a lady's fine gold watch, a number of old coins, insurance policies, receipts, etc, The burglars gained entrance through a window in the kitchen and had accomplished their work and made good their escape before the members of the family returned to the house. Mrs. J. C, Yetzer recently made a trip from Atlantic to Oskaloosa and return. Her husband, formerly president of the Cass County Bank, was in jail at Atlantic under sentence for wrecking the bank and swindling the depositors. She went to Oskaloosa to secure the signature of James Baxter •po her husband's bond, and after securing the signature of Thomas Meredith, of Des Moines, she returned home, Later Yetzer was released during ap' peal. The case of George Laird against the C., R, I. & P, B. B. Co., which has attracted so much attention in the Guthrie county district court, came to an end by the jury returning a verdict ior the plaintiff, fixing his damages at $12,000, Mr, Laird was an engineer on the Bock Island, pulling the way freight from Des Moines to Stuart, and |u February last, was injured in a collision between Des Moines and Valley Junction, his train colliding with an engine running east on the north track. Mr? Laird's injuries are said to be total jajni permanent. goyernor 'appointed A- J. Me* of J^eo&ulj, judge of the Mrs. H. B. Mason, Secretary of the * C. T. tl. of Independence, mysteriously disappeared from her home on the 14th, and her husband has as ye* been unable to learn her whereabouts. Her neighbors state that she bas been brutally treated by her husband, and it is supposed that she has sought shelter with ffiends in another part of the state. Some time ago P. H. Stepphun and J. M. Elbers, of Carroll, engaged in the saloon business. After a few weeks they became engaged in a quarrel and Stephunn brought the case into court for dissolution. Albers, through his attorney, demurred, claiming that the court had no jurisdiction, that on the face of the petition the Saloon business was illegal and that the court could not take cognizance of an illegal business. Judge Church sustained the demurrer and the case Was thrown out of court, practically making the saloon in Iowa, even , if operated under the mulct law, a legal outcast, yet amenable to the law. A Siolix City dispatch says: Unless some one heads off the radical temperance people of this city, it will soon be getting its drinks over on the Nebraska side, as in the old days. The W. C. T. U. has set copyists at work copying the lists of petition signatures on file in the auditor's office, with a view of a thorough investigation of the legality of the petitions. They were not questioned at the time of their filing, but it is now evident that the courts will be called upon to review the entire proceeding as well as to decide whether the saloon can run at present with the open violation of some features of the law. . • ; The tuberculosis scare has broken out at Algona. Two dairy herds have been examined by the state veterinarian, Dr, M. Stalker, and one of them, owned by C. M. Lind, ex-member of the legislature, was found to have twenty-three diseased cattle in it. Lind is furious and fairly crazed over his loss. He invited the test, and now it is said, he is trying to find some way to discredit it. Dr. Stalker has quarantined the diseased cattle, and has ordered the sheriff not to let them get away. Lind is a wealthy man and has been supplying milk to the city. His trade is now at an end until he destroys the tuberculosis cai- tle. The tuberculin test was applied to the herd of W. H. Ingham, of the late *• Judicial district, to succee4 ' Ltwte Westbrook, aged. J6, Kossuth county bank, and only two cows were found to be affected. The people are excited about the matter and every man wants his herd tested. Considerable interest is being taken in the experiment by C. A. and H. M. Wherry, at Oxford Junction, of feeding hogs with flour. They have eighty- five head under this feed, sixty-five of which they weighed when they jbegan feeding the flour. After ten days on the new feed the hogs wero again weighed and it was found that they had gained one and one-fifth pounds each" per clay. The flour was also weighed and it was ascertained that ' it takes six pounds of flour to make ope of pork. Previous experiments on the same hogs with corn feeding showed that it takes eight pounds of corn to make one of pork, and the hogs gained but one pound a day during the ten days' trial. The hogs will now average in weight about 150 pounds. The original way of feeding the flour dry is being continued. It is 'put into self- feeding troughs or bins, and the animals are allowed to eat all they will of it and it is kept constantly before them. The flour was laid down in 100 pounds sacks by a firm in Minneapolis for $17.25 a ton. J. H. Boyce, the leading jeweler of Fayette, whose store was broken into a number of weeks ago, has just come into possession of a portion of the $1,000 worth of jewelry which was stolen. Several weeks ago Mr. Shaffer, living eight miles south of Fayette, found a number of the stolen papers while removing some of the hay from his barn. These were identified by Mr. Boyce and returned to him. A few days ago another discovery was made. While at work in the same hay loft a hat full of jewelry and watches was found in one corner of the barn underneath the hay, Mr. Boyce went out to the farm to secure the stolen property, There is a theory as to how these articles came to be in- this building. On the night following the one on which the deed was perpetrated, two men stopped at Mr. Shaffer's residence and asked to be fed and given a place to sleep for the night. They were such rough looking characters that they did not think it expedient to keep them over night, but gave them their supper and, as Mr. Shaffer supposed, sent them on their way. Such, however, it seems, was not the case. In the morning Mr, Shaffer, on coming into the barn yard, was astonished to hnd his barn door wide open and upon investigation discovered that some persons had lodged in the barn during the night. It is supposed that these two men were the ones who broke open the safe and that they deposited tUis hat full of spoils in the barn, Further developments are looked for. " E, E Potter of Elma and Tom Carroll were boxing, when Potter received a blow on the right ear which burst the drum and rendered him as deaf as a post.

The strike of the New York building trades in sympathy with the Electrical Workers promises to surpass any in the history of these organizations, It may effect nearly 100,000 persons. Two thousand are out now and others are said to be simply waiting the word, The board of walking delegates controls 25,000 men, and 00,000 mechanics unorganized will be forced into idleness. Hon. Frederick Douglass, the well- known colored orator and political leader, died at his home, Acostia, in Washington, D. C., on the 31st, from heart failure. He had no warning and had been enjoying his usual good health. His wealth is variously estimated at from $100,000 to $200,000. Three Chinese commanders have suicided because of the reverse of their forces. The German reichstag has adopted the resolutions instructing the federal government to issue invitations for an international monetary conference for the rehabilitation of silver. At Columbus, John McBride,'chief of the American Federation of Labor, by unanimous report of the investigating committee, was found not guilty of corruption in connection with the Hocking Valley railroad strike. A resolution of confidence was passed by the United Mine Workers. Consumptives Ordered to the Pest House. 1 CINCINNATI, Ohio, Feb. 18.—Dr. W. E. Amick, the eminent consumption specialist of this city, has created a national sensation by his decided opposition to the order of the hospital authorities to send 100 consumptives to the smallpox pest house. His experience in the institution convinces him that it is unjustifiable and brutal. He has, through his attorneys, entered protest, and in the Cincinnati Tribune presents a formidable array of scientific facts against the contagion theory of consumption which covers that theory with ridicule. A hot newspaper controversy is the result. The Amick Chemical company, compounders of Dr • A i _1_™ «. n w. n^ •! f\ f T c> iv» aillYin* T1*A£* \.( TWO THOUSAND DIE.

SAD DISASTER IN KIO BAY. France May Help Natives in a Threat• eaed Uprising Against British. Paris, Feb. 21,—Rumors of an unsatisfactory nature as to the condition of affairs in Egypt are causing uneasiness here. A special dispatch from Cairo says that friendly natives assert that a rising of the natives will take place on the 26th of this month, during the Ramadan, the great annual feast of the Mohammedans, which, lasts during the day for a month. This rising, the dispatch says, has been foretold in Mohammedan fanatical societies. The Journal des Debats, commenting on the situation, asserts that in the European chancellories there is no readiness to admit the existence of a British protectorate in Egypt. The Journal Insists that the task of France is to rouse continental Europe so that it will give unmistakable evidence that its sympathy is with Egypt as against Groat Britain.

IOWA PATENT OFFICE REPORT, Brazilian NcwspalHla Received Giving JTull Particulars of Horror. New Tork, Feb. 21.—The .Rio News of Jan. & just received In the latest mail, gives the particulars of a ^terrible '>; calamity in the bay of Rio > Janeiro. It says: "About 7:16 o'clock Sunday, evening, Jan. 6, a flre broke out .on the ferry boat Tercaira soon after her leaving the Sandomingas landing! The boat left Rio de Janeiro with a large number of passengers, estimated at 300, the greatest number of whom disembarked at Sandomingas. About fifty passengers embarked at this point. It is generally estimated that there were from 100 to 1BO persons on board at the time of the disaster. Although the Tercelra was very near land when the fire appeared, nothing effective appears to j have been done to save the passengers except the forethought of the engineers in opening the safety, valves of the boilers , to prevent an explosion. The master signalled for the engineer to stop and nothing more was done. But few life-saving apllances were on board. The fire burned with fuch rapidity, however, that he passengers were soon driven overboard, where many were drowned, though some were rescued by the launch boats which hastened to the rescue, and a few succeeded in swimming ashore. The ferry boat, Quinta had just, left the Nlctheroy slip when the fire "broke out and the master promptly hurried to the scene. On approaching the burning vessel he was suddenly surrounded by an excited crowd of passengers, some with revolvers In their hands, who threatened his life--If he ventured near the burning boat. He was therefore compelled to turn away and leave the passengers of the Terclra to their^fate. Before doing so, however, he had all the benches and other means of saving life thrown overboard for those struggling in the water. In little more than half an hour the terrible scene was at an end, so far as the passengers were concerned." wni B*rt>i# Mates i defitlftl !«>fnlnatl6«.

It ought to have been the principal issue two years ago, but we were then just emerging from the shadow of sectionalism and the force bill and it was no time to divide on financial questions. But that time has now arrived and the next contest will be waged between the free coinage men and those Who oppose that proposition. Party lines will bft, obliterated and this will be the one thing which will divide the voters of the country," Representative Livingstone, of Georgia, who is also a strong advocate of the free coinage of silver, agrees with Mr. Bland that the sliver question will be the question of prime importance before the country next year. He insists the silver men will nominate a candidate of • their own but he does not believe this will be done after a democratic conven- .jtion shall have nominated a candidate .'-opposed to free silver.

F., Feb. 22.—The destitution arising from the financial crisis is increasing. In this city about 7,000 persons are-regularly receiving relief. The funds for this purpose are becoming low and there is yet another month of real hardship before the poor. The Herald, by a bread-baking contest, secured 1,000 loaves to-day which it will distribute. The government has been contributing $1,000 weekly for the benefit of the poor but this has now been withdrawn. The government intimates its intention of starting relief works. The opposition press accuses the government of cutting off its contribution to the relief fund in order to devote the $1,000 weekly to a corruption fund to be used in the elections which occur within a fortnight. GOTHAM'S BIG STRIKE. TwentyrFIve Thousand Men Expected to qo Out. New Tork, Feb. 22.—The strike of the building trades in sympathy with that of the electrical wiremen bids fair to surpass any other in the history of these organizations.
