REPUBLICAN, Algorm Republican* MlttON STAttR, Publish*!-, I I -1 IOWA The Icarian community, of Corning, Sias dissolved. Dubuque is moving for a state base t>all league. Samuel Betts, of Winterset, lately Celebrated his 94th birthday. K Aaron Pierce, a mute of Lanark, 111., was killed by a Milwaukee train near Clinton recently. J. II. Pope has been appointed postmaster at Arbor Hill, Adair county, vice H. G. Lynch, removed. The Iowa wholesale grocers association held a very interesting session in Dubuque on Thursday and Friday. The Missisippi river is rising rapidly, and fears are entertained that much property along the banks will be damaged. Hugh Newell, coroner of Jasper county, died recently. He was at one time one of Jasper county's most prominent lawyers. At Cedar Eapids at a meeting of the executive committee of the First Iowa Cavalry Association, it was decided to hold the next triennial reunion at Clinton on September 25 and 26 next. "Chet" Cole, who formerly resided in DCS Moines, died in Oskaloosa lately, aged 51 years. He ran on the Iowa Central as a passenger conductor. He was a soldier In the war of 18(51-5. As a result of the women's crusade the Sioux City saloonkeepers will no longer clean-up and stock up their saloons on Sundays. During the Sun- dav cleanine 1 up thev did a biff trade. VVm. Murray vs. the Chicago & Northwestern Railway Company has filed notice of appeal from Judge Shiras to the United States circuit court of appeals at Dubuque. This is an action to recover §90,000 with interest for overcharging on shipments of grain and live stock. At What Cheer, George Gilfoy was arrested for attempted rape on Mrs. Charles Rolling, and is now in jail. Mrs. Rolling was going home late in the evening when Gilfoy followed her and made the attempt; but Mrs. Rolling is a large, powerful woman, and bealN him off and then he ran off, but Mrs. Kolling followed and identified him. P. M.Reyes, a man of clerical appearance, has been arrested at Council Bluffs for larceny from a building. He claims to be a minister from Fort Dodge. After his arrest he tried to bribe the officer to release him. He had $145.91, a gold watch and half-fare tickets granted to him as a minister by the Sioux City & Northsrn, Burlington '•;• & Missouri River, Northwestern, Chicago Great Western and the Milwaukee. Lot Shull, a prominent farmer living just east of Riverton, met with a painful and what might have been a serious accident a few days ago. Mr. Shull was trying to place a halter on a young and viscious horse, when it •wheeled and kicked, striking Mr. Shull just above the left eye with one of its hoofs, causing a wound about two inches in length, which extended to the bone and lacerated the parts so that the flesh hung down over the eye. The Sioux City elevated road and electric line to Morning Side have been sold by the sheriff to A. B. and D. W. Bobbins, of St. Paul for §50,000. This is but a fraction of the original cost of the road, the company never having been able to pay the Ring Iron Bridge Company for the building of the elevated portion of the road. It is not known what the Bobbins' will do with the road, but It is rumored that they will interest the Ring Bridge Company in it so that the company can get its money oxit of the road. Sefert Larson mysteriously disappeared from his his home in Ft. Dodge recently. A warrant was ovit for his arrest on the charge of rape upon the person of Miss Pearl Jones. This sudden disappearance on the part of Larson renews the sensation that has surrounded him for the past two months, and proves the guilt of the charge. The person whom he is charged with raping is a 15-year old girl of a woman who herself does not bear the best of characters, and who has persisted in hanging around the Lai'son home. After serving three years in the Ana- jnosa penitentiary for the crime of murder, Charles Lee, who was recently granted a new trial, was acquitted after two hours deliberation by the jury at Dubuque. Judge O'Donnell charged that if Lee was engaged in robbery resulting in murder he was guilty of murder in the second degree. The verdict was a surprise. Lee is also under indictments for burglary and robbery connected with the same cyhne, and the question whether he can be tried for these will be argued. The large retail drug house of L. Louis Blllau at Cedar Rapids has been taken possession of by the sheriff under an execution issued on a judg> went for $800 back rental due No statement of assets and liabilities is given to the public. The Baptist parsonage, located at Bridgeport, a country settlement & few jpiles from Boone. was burned to the ground the other night. AS the house y?a.s vacant 'the iusurap.ee is invalid, d the congrega.tio» will sustain a " JJw?ugh,t Indians from the Winnebago reset- tation in Nebraska are cansinf great annoyance by depredations on the loWa side oi the Missouri river. Burglars forced ati entrance intd the First National bank at Griswold. They opened the vault door with explosives, drilled inside to the time lock door, placed in it a charge, lit the fuse and closed the vault door. The charge proved so heavy that it wrecked the Vault, safe and building to the extent of nearly $4,000. The report from the explosion of the safe tvas so great that the robbers made a hasty departure, but not before securing nearly $400 in stamps belonging to the postmaster and $150 in change inside the vault doof for safekeeping. The small inner safe contained $20,000. It was found to be intact and the contents safe. A large posse is in pursuit of the burglars, who are supposed to be professionals. A bold robbery took place one mile north of Tabor last week. A man and woman, driving a span of gray horses hitched to a top buggy, stopped at the farm house of James Yates, claiming to be relatives of Myron Munsinger, living near by. No one was at the house at the time but Mrs. Yates. The man drew a revolver and ordered her to prepare dinner. She did so. After they had eaten, the man gave his companion the revolver and told her to keep guard over Mrs. Yates. He then went to Munsinger's house and ransacked it from cellar to garret. Munsinger is a stock buyer and is at present in Chicago with stock. The amount taken is unknown, but he 5s supposed to have secvred considerable money. The man and woman then drove off east. At Newton a few evenings since while on his way home at about 10 o'clock, Jerry Zollinger was hit on the head with a club by some person. At the time .he was struck he was to all appearances, four rods from his gate. He did not fall until he got to a chair in the house. Being asked what was the. matter he said "I got struck in the yard." He lived until 12:30 when his spirit took flight without being able to say anything that would give the least clue. Two clubs were found near the place, but it is all theory as to whether the clubs had anything to do with the killing. On his person was found 820, so that if the motive was robbery, the person was scared off by his not falling. He has been a prominent man in Newton for many years and was for four years sheriff, during which time he made many enemies, and it is thought by some that it was the paying off of 'old scores, with no attempt at .robbery. He leaves a wife, son and daughter, all grown. Captain Zollinger served during the war in the Twenty-eight Iowa and of late years had been in the grocery business. He was buried by the G. A. R. Council Bluffs furnished a bloody sequel to the Griswold bank robbery < At 6 o'clock Monday evening, Deputy Sheriffs O'Brien and Hooker found the burglars in the Kiel hotel and arrested two of them, not recognizing a third who was there. They started to the jail near by, but in front of the court house one of the burglars jumped behind a tree and shot O'Brien, inflicting a probably fatal wound in the abdomen. A running fire followed, in which one of the burglars, who gave the name of John Riley, v •• s dangerously wounded in the groia, and several others more or less hurt. Motorman Stallard, several blocks away, was hit on the forehead by a spent ball and knocked senseless, but not seriously injured. One or two other burglars, Whith, alias Wilson, was captured and one escaped. They dropped several packages of nickels, and a kit of burglars' tools was found in the hotel, including two sticks of giant powder, fuse and dynamite caps, postage stamps and small coins. The burglars are well dressed, fine-looking men and evidently professionals. Deputy Sheriff Nick O'Brien, who was shot by one of the robbers, is in a precarious condition. Surgeons give little hope to his friends of recovery. He vomited all night and is now in a comatose condition, with symptoms of peritonitis. The ball passed through the lower part of his liver. O'Brien says Riley, the escaped burglar, who did the shooting, is known to him, and that he is Charles O'Connor, whose father keeps a restaurant on Twelfth, between Farnham and Harney streets, in Omaha. Officers'tracked him to the river, three miles southwest of town, and to numerous places where he had tried to cross on the ice, but found it too unsafe. The trail led to a point underneath the Union Pacific bridge and was lost. The wounded burglar says his name is W. J, Smith, and that his home is in Burlington, He is shot in the left groin aud is badly hurt. White, alias Wilson, the other burglar captured, was identified by Sheriff Davenport, of Malvern, as a fellow who was implicated in the bank robbery there last October, but whom the grand jury failed to indict, although there was little room for doubt that he was guilty. Mr, R. E. Whitacre, of Oskaxoosa, recently suffered the loss of his fine stallion, Artisan, Artisan had a record of 3:18}^ and was valued at $5,000, Death resulted from lung fever, brought in the recent severe cold weather. Chris Terrell, a farmer living two miles from Sigourney, has,entirely lost his mind, caused hy a spinal injury a few years ago, frpca which he was supposed to have recovered, but a iso brought on the OF BE1M A terrible railroad accident Occurred oh the inter-Ocanie railroad in Mexico on the 1st. Five coaches Were rolled down the mountain side and ttvo hundred (killed or injured. All the passengers were Mexicans. Belief was promptly sent to their aid, The engineer and conductor took to the woods, fearing vengeance. Richard O'Gorman, the eminent Irish nationalist, scholar and orator, died at his home in New York City in the seventy-fifth year of his age. Two years ago he had a serious attack of grip, Which he never fully recovered from, although able to be about. In 1848 he Was indicted for high treason and escaped to this country. Two buildings, one in course of construction and one in course of demoli tion, collapsed in New York City on the 1st and killed four men and fatally injured* maimed or bruised nineteen others. The first accident occurred in the morning. A house being torn down by some forty laborers, fell with a crash, carrying several workmen to the basement three floors below and they were most completely covered by. tons of brick, dry mortar and iron beams. The second accident occurred in the afternoon. Without the least warning to fifty men who worked near it, the central wall to a four-story double'tenement house in the course of construction crumbled and fell. With the wall went portions of the four floors. From this heap of mass of bricks and twisted iron there were taken out one man (John Wilson) dead and twelve injured. Anthony Klein fell four stories, but escaped without even a scratch. He says he was carried down gently and thrown through one of the front doors into the street. William L. Wilson has been nominated by the president to be postmaster general. In the Nevada legislature a concurrent resolution striking the word "male" out of the constitution passed the assembly. The kaiser has nominated Emperor Francis Joseph of Austria as a field marshal of Germany to fill the vacancy caused by the death of Archduke Albert of Austria. A dispatch to the Pall Mall Gazette from Chee-Foo says that the Japanese have evacuated Ninghai and the advanced fortifications at Wai-Hai-Wel have mostly gone to Talein Wan. The London Times' correspondent in Hai Chen says the Chinese are now be tween Lioyany 'and Liaolin rivers. Their force has been increased to 50,000. Sixteen thousand of them have been seen in the vicinity of Hai Chen since the 2 st, but there has been.no serious attack. ' ' At Rockford', I1L, the National Butter and Cheese Makers' association elected officers headed by B. W. Segar of Pecatonica, 111., as president. F. C. Oltrage of Tripoli, Iowa, won the first prize in the butter contest in separated cream division, and E. S. Allen of Clarion, Iowa, in the gathered cream division. Postmaster General Bissell tendered his resignation to President Cleveland on the evening of the 27th, to take effect upon the appointment and qualification of his successor. He will probably remain in office until April 1.

Said to tt&te &t Worfc In coeds s iieefi tfa*> MJfiii— fttftcftti Me« m taa§§§» te Cerrillos, tf. M., March 1.—White Ash coal mine, three miles ffohi Certillos, was the scene of a tefHblS explosion a little before noon yesterday. .¥flirty* five men Were working Itt fotif levels When the disaster occurred. E&iVen 61 them have so far been rescued, all in a dying condition. Up to 10 p. in. twen- ty^flve bodies have been taken out horribly mutilated and difficult of Identify cation. The scenes of the identification of the wounded afid dead Were heartf ending. The miners are all nlaf • fled men. When the news of the disaster spread, wives and children hurried from Waldo and Madrid. Not until evening, owing to the smoke, dust and noxious vapors that filled every approach, to the workings, could any pro* gress bo made toward effecting a rescue and the efforts were cruelly rewarded, for up to 7 o'clock but one miner had been reached. His dead body was found near the entrance. Three hours later the rescuers succeeded in reaching the left fourth level and the dead bodies of several men were brought out. The sight about the mine was heartrending in the extreme. Frantic wives many of them carrying babies in their arms, having children clinging to their skirts or to them, stood at the entrance of the mine for hours amid tears and prayers watching and waiting, while hundreds of men vainly struggled to gain entrance further into the mine. Up to 6 o'clock the gas continued to pour forth from the single opening in the mine in such volume as to make the progress of the rescuers very difficult, but an hour later the noxious vapors cleared away and the work of recovering the dead bodies began to prove more successful. Later in the evening, eleven dying miners were discovered in a bunch. They were probably overcome in an effort to escape. It is .thought the explosion was caused by the miners breaking through into some abandoned working, thus liberating the gas that had accumulated. The mouth of the shaft is the sole means of egress. Nobody seems to know justhowmany men went into the mine in the morning. Ordinarily 150 men are employed, but the day being Wednesday it is said scarce half the usual quota of men were at work. Representative Laeden, lately employed there, says he is confident that noty less than eighty-five men must have been in the workings at the time of the explosion. Twenty-' two are known to be dead. totem tihic&go, F6b. 28.— Fir6, attended B$ inany of the scenes of the gfedt eonflft*- gration of 1871, caused the tot|l de** etfuetioh yesterday of th6 KMst*, her & t36. butldtfif , 245 Jeff ef*6ti Sw«fctf and a section of the tiraiie Manufact*- tirifig dompany's blf plant adjoining ofl. the north; scorched many neighboring Structures and placed the Hve9 of Scores of ijanic-stficken tlris and cml*- drett 1ft jeopardy, tffro hundred and eevent^flve girls employed th the l^ft* dasfef- Caramel eomDany, a block aWdj? from the fife, w6re maddened by fight and rushed dowii a narrow stairway* in thelf' flight several fell and wefS trampled oh and Severely injure'd b#- the others.

The hail of eln* ders and hot fragments of WOod, unaccompanied by large clouds of smoke, caused apprehension among business men and property owners in a radius of many blocks from the flre. But angry, as the flre was, Chief Swenie and his assistants checked 'its progress when it appeared to be a certainty that a major* portion of the West Side manufacturing district was in imminent danger Firemen were driven from their posts on Jefferson street, two steamers had to be abandoned and the huge standplpe of the department was left to sizzle in the heat, but Chief Swenie stood in water nearly to his knees, directing the firemen and hoping that the walls of the Kaestner building would fall. "If these walls stand up long enough in those flames," shouted the chief to Marshal Campion, during the fiercest moment of the conflagration, "flre will get at everything east of us." At this point the. Wind seemed to shift a few points, the flames leaped to a height of 200 feet and snapped in hopeless fury, and the walls collapsed. . After that the danger of a more general conflagration was over. A thick flre wall separating: tfie southern third oC the Crane' structure confined the flre to that portion of the elevator company's building occupied by heavy machinery, derricks and comparatively, noncombustible material. The scene in the remaining portion of the Crane plant during 1 the firemen's fight with the flre the other side of the fire-wall was a highly interesting one. Three floors filled with a bewildering sea o£ machinery swarmed with employes,' each anxious to save the valuable patterns and small machinery. Firemen rode up and down the bis fre}gnt ele- Vfctor,. kept running to remove, patterns from the upper floors, and Insurance patrolmen spread acres of tarpaulins over the machinery. Teams backed up to the alley doors, and were loaded with patterns. These precautions, however- were scarcely needed. The marshals informed A. D. Magill, of the firm of R. T. Crane & Co., that the flre would not be permitted to get into that portion of the plant north of the flre-walli The firemen kept their word. The total loss will reach nearly $ 1.000,000.

Washington; March 1.—Dress reform was the theme of the discussion throughout yesterday's session of the national council of women. Practical suggestions for furthering the improved dress movement were made in the report of the chairman of the dress committee, Francis B. Russell of St. Paul, Minn. The committee made a vigorous protest against the present cumbersome skirts, high heels, and constricted waists, and characterized the modern civilized woman's dress as a demonstration of habitual idleness. The session closed with a plea for reform dress by Julia Pauline Leavitt of Maine, \vho referred to dressmaking as a profession in which stupidity was colossal. Women the Victims of Whltecaps. Muncie, Ind., March 1.—Mrs. Manda Hamilton, 35, alleges that four masked men entered her house near Granville Monday night and beat her and her aged mother, Mrs. Eliza Graham, Into insensibility. She swore out warrants for the arrest of Albert Sherry, Walter Berry, Elmer Ball and Rollie Wright, charging them with the crime. One of the men is justice of the peace in the township. It is thought Mrs. Hamilton is injured internally and may not recover. This is the first whitecap case for this county, and the prominence of the people concerned has caused much excitement, and further trouble is expected in that city, as the women have hundreds of sympathizers.
