Republican, 8*Aftfc, IOWA The defense in the Cotirtiie.y-.farvi$ rtmrder trial at Wapello have submitted a plea of insanity. C. E. Burlingame, ag-ed r>8, was killed in Smith & Son's box factory at Clinton by being struck by a board from a machine. Miss Annie Prugeman, aged 31, committed suicide at Keokuk a few days ago by hanging herself in the woodshed. Ill health prompted the deed. Lorenzo D. Button, a territorial pioneer, and for fifty-four years a resident of Clinton county, died aped 77. He held many offices during his life. A young man named Mnrphy who was being taken to the Independence. insane asylum by Sheriff Phillips, of Dubuque county, escaped from the car at Dyersville and at last accounts was still at large. William Garner, of Latty, suicided by asphyxiating himself with gas in the family house. His dead body was •found. He had just began divorce proceedings against his wife for adultery and the case was to have come up on the 1.2th. He was a prosperous farmer and leaves six children. The Malcom town council passed an ordinance looking to the granting of a franchise for a system of water works, and authorizing bonds to the amount of fti.OOO. The bonds will be taken at home and will run ten years at 5 pel- cent interest. At an election the first of the month the question of putting in water works was submitted and received but two negative votes. The movable church of J. B. Crawford was dedicated a few days ago at Uurlington. The exercises were participated in by representatives of all the churches of that city. The building is of iron and steel, and is so constructed that it can be taken down and transported from place to place. It •will be transported from place to place. It will seat 500 persons. The building will be used in missionary work in Des Moines county. Cornelius Judd, of Clinton, in a fit of temporary insanity, caused by the grip, made threats and a desperate attempt to cut the throats of his three children, his wife and himself. His wife, who if a powerful woman, succeeded in preventing him until assistance arrived. Meanwhile the man continued to grow desperate, and before he was finally quieted down it required the combined strength of four men to hold him to the floor. Arthur Conrad, aged 15, son of a prominent grocer merchant at Clinton, met death by being struck by the passenger elevator in the Weston block. His windpipe was broken and he died very shortly after the accident. He was on the second floor of the building and had picked the lock and opened the elevator door. The elevator was up and it was his intention to jump in as it came down. The cage struck him before he could get back out of its way. a The jury in the case of Walter Strange, on trial at Sioux City, was discharged, after having been out for ninety-two hours without reaching an agreement. This was the first case against ex-Supervisor Strange for criminal actions in connection with the county boodling cases, and the testimony in the case was substantially the same as in the case in which he was boosted from office under impeachment proceedings. The county attorney announced that he would ask for the trial of this case again at the first opportunity and none of the other boodling cases will be tried until it is disposed of. A few mornings since at 5 o'clock, as Night Watch Hunter, of Algona, was about going home, he noticed ft flame in the stairway of the Haggard & Peek land office. He went over at once and found some rags soaked in oil burning. After stamping out the fire he went on, and noticing a smell of something burning as he passed the Kossuth County State bank, he stopped there and found a fire well under headway in the rear office in the second story, which had lately been unoccupied. The fire company was called out and the flames were put out, the chief damage resulting from water, Both fires were purely incsndiary and were started after the hour when the night" watch usually retires. Both would have done great damage. This is the third suspicious fire lately. The first burned the Grange Store and an adjoining building, The second took the steam laundry and two adjoining buildings. The people are thoroughly arpus>eil and fire bugs will get scapt jjonatderation if caupnt, f j he trial of Stephen Courtney, who rourdered CoHRty Astoyney Jarvisj of feovtea county last fall, has begun ip the district court at Wapellp.

He had been suffering from severe nervous prostration and had threatened suicide. His son went to his room to see that all was right, and Mackay was found standing before the glass with a razor in his hand. The son jumped forward to stay his arm, but before this could be done the old man slashed his throat, dying several hours later. He leaves a wife and nine children. Segil Dearth, of Ehlora, has confessed to the stealing of a livery team -at Manchester about two years ago, and notified the sheriff of Delaware county that he wants to give himself and wife up. Dearth is led to make the confession through remorse and family troubles. He also claims that his wife's folks at Hansell murdered an infant, and can show the proper officers the burial place of its remains. Dearth is about 25 years of age and came to Bldora from the eastern part of Iowa several years ago. The young man shows no signs of insanity, tells a straightforward story and claims that he thinks his life is in danger through the knowledge of the murder, and that by making the confession he hopes to ease his mind of its burden and put the blame where it belongs. The A. O. U. W. fight has turned up in a new quarter. Heretofore the state courts have dealt with the case exclusively, the so-called rebels winning always, the last decision granting an injunction restraining the loyals from doing an insurance business in Iowa. A petition has now been filed in the United States circuit court asking that the rebels be restrained ' from continuing business as an insurance and benevolent order, denying the right or the authority of the rebels to use the name of A. O. U. W. The petition is signed by L. L. Troy, of Illinois: Jos. E. Biggs, of Kansas; J, G. Tate. of Nebraska; M. W. Sackett. of Pennsylvania: .1. J. Acker, of New York; H. C. Sessions, of South Dakota, and W. H. Verlillo, of New Jersey, all members of the supreme lodge A. O. U. W., and several lowans. The case has already gained national notoriety, and this latest move will give it greater prominence. A. L. Ingersoll suicided at Clear Lake a few nights since. Ingersoll was sitting with his wife in their living rooms back of Airs. Ingersoll's millinery parlors, when suddenly, without any warning, he took a 38-calibre revolver out. of his pocket and shot himself through the head just above the right ear and died almost instantly. Mrs. Ingersoll was terribly shocked and overcome with grief at the dreadful spectacle enacted before her. Nothing like any adequate cause for the fearful deed has been made known. He had lived in Clear Lake from boyhood, his folks being among the early settlers. Recently he had been engaged in tne boot and shoe business at Clear Lake. The only possible cause that so far has been assigned for his act is financial trouble of some kind, but just what is not known. He was about twenty-five years of age. A year ago he married Miss Crowell of Clear Lake, and two months ago a baby was born to them. David Blosser, one of the most prominent and influential citizens of Cromwell, suicided a few days ago. It had developed that Blosser was a. forger, but to what extent was not definitely known, and probably never will be. The Creston National Bank became aware that it had collateral on Blosser that was forg-ed, and the investigation revealed that the peculations of Blosser extended over a period of three years. All this time Blosser bore the best reputation. It is variously estimated that Blosser's forgeries will reach 85,000, and possibly #10,000. Besides this he has borrowed large sums from wealthy citizens on his own note. This amount will probably reach $15,000, although the sum cannot be learned, as the excited populace reticently part with the news. The Creston National bank filed attachments against Blosser for $1,350, the amount that Blosser had forged on the bank. When the officer went to the blacksmith shop, owped by Blosser, to arrest him, he endeavored to evade the officer, and failing, drew a revolver and shot himself in the right tejnple. Jt was learned that early in the week he attempted to take his life by taking strychnine, but failed. His peculations are (.stimated to amount to $35,000. He had been engaged in the implement business, and what he did with the large amount of money forged »nd borrowed is a mystery.

The Western Newspaper Union plant at Kansas City was destroyed by fire on the night of the 13th* At Walsenberg, Col., a number of Italians killed a deputy sheriff named Hixon. Later they were captured with the aid of blood hounds. On the Way to the jail fottr of the six men were killed by a mob, who fired' tipon them. Italians came to the scene and a riot resulted in which one man was j killed. The next evening a mob broke into the jail and killed the two remaining Italians. It is said one or more of the Italians were Italian citi* zens and their killing is being investigated by the Italian consul. It is said ex-State Treasurer Taylor, of South Dakota, has been arrested in Mexico. At New Orleans on the 12th a number of striking white men fired upon a gang of colored men who had taken their places and seven were killed and a dozen or more wounded. The American steamer Alliance arrived in New York and reports that she was fired upon off the eastern edge of Cuba by a Spanish war vessel. The matter will be investigated. A Pittsburg dispatch says the striking miners in that district think their fight is practically won. Of the 22,000 who went out, 16,000 have been granted their demands and gone to work. According to Chinese advices, the terms of peace which China.is about to offer to Japan give Japan $250,000;000 in gold and the Island of Formosa, and Japan will be allowed to occupy Port Arthur and Wei-Hai-Wei for a term of years. Harry Hayward, under conviction at Minneapolis for the murder of Catherine Ging, has been sentenced to hang on the llth of June. The Indiana legislature broke up in a riot. A bill had passed to supplant the democratic custodian by a republican. The governor waited until an hour of adjournment and then sent a message to the house. The private secretary was violently used and a riot resulted over an effort of the republicans to keep him from the speaker. He finally reached the desk,,but just as the speaker declared the house adjourned. A number of persons were injured, one fatally. The democrats of Chicago nominated Frank Wenter,' president of the board of the board of directors of the Chicago Drainage Canal, for mayor. George Swift is nominated by the republicans and the election occurs the first week in April. According to a report of the legisla tive committee appointed to investigate the defalcation of Treasurer Taylor, of South Dakota, there was collusion between ihe defaulter and certain securities to "hold up" the state, and compel a settlement. HURRICANE IN FIJI. Washington, March 15—At the of>en» ihg of the session of the Suptemfc court yesterday Mr. Choate resumed his argument agalnftt the constitutionality of the income tax. He declared the latfr to be a deliberate strike, on the part of th6 men %ho V0t6d tat it, at the really rich. Mr. Choftte theh took «jt> the denial by the law of any exemption to cor* porations, cohtehdiHgr for uniformity in the treatment of corporations and Individual persons, tie characterised as "capricious" the exemfctloh of the property of schools, churches, and similar Institutions, as well as the savings banks, loaft associations, and rtiutual Insurance companies and said that a far harsher term would be justified. Mr. Choate quoted from official records to show the enormous extent of the business done by the mutual companies, declaring that there were no Institutions in the land which were more noted grabbers for and hoarders of money than these mutual compottles. It was 3 o'clock When Mr. Choate, after having spoken three hours yesterday and forty minutes Thursday, reached his peroration. He stopped so suddenly, that the audience did not at first appear o realize that the argument in the am MS case Ind reached a finality, and hat nothing remained to determine the validity of the income tax except the decision of the court, which could not, of course, be then expected. GOV. M'INTYRE .Answers MOVES, Conusl and Mcln- fef At fe tifiPAftf MEftf A§dUf ItAUAN t«* Affwd t* Italian Department. Denver. Colo., March IB.-Gov yre yesterday received simultaneously rom the authorities at Washington and he Italian consul at this point inquiries concerning the Walsenberg lynchings. To Washington the governor tele- graphed'the fullest particulars he had and promised fullest protection to all. He also said it was probable the Ital- lynched were American citizens; that he had directed the sheriff to protect his prisoners and maintain order; and that he had a report from the colonel commanding the nearest place that he could put troops aboard cars in two hours. The Italian Consul here has not been notified officially of the affair at Wal- senberg. It is considered doubtful whether complications with Italy will arise, since three and possibly four of the dead men have renounced their allegiance to Italy. All'is:<quitet at Wal- senberg now. SORRY HE SHUT WILD. Omaha Priest Does Not, Regret H's Us». of a Kcvolvor. Omaha, Neb., March '15.—-The St. Paul's church fight, in which the priest Karminski shot two men Tuesday, has taken a new turn. The district court has ordered dep.uties to the scene to keep the anti-bishop faction in posnes- sion until it can appeal to the supreme court. Many arrests were made yesterday. Father Kariminski was among the number. "I do not, regret it a. particle that I shot Dargaczewski," said Priest Karminski when in jail. "If I were placed in the same position again I would act in the same way, only I thing I would be cooler and shot with better effect:. They deserved to be killed, for they entered on my premises like robbers, with the intention of killing me, and I surely have the right to protect myself. They intended to kill me, for I have received several letters threatening my life." Town of Suva Suffers Severely a Plantation* Ruined. Vancouver, B. C-, March 15.— The terrifflc hurricanes which swept ove the Fiji islands Jan. 6 and 7. The build Ings in Suva suffered very severly. Th Presbyterian 1 " church, the Wesleyan church, the native Polyeslan church an-1 the Church of England were en tlrely destroyed. Other church edifices were unroofed and the custom-house, bonded store, and many small stores and dwellings were wrecked. The cp- coanut and banana plantations are totally ruined. It will take fully five years for them to recover from the effects of the terrible storm. It was the most serious hurricane that has visited the Fiji islands for years. There will be a great scarcity of food among the natives owing to the plantations having been destroyed, A few lives were lost. HE IS A RICH MAN NOW.

SIX KILLED BYJTHE MOB. Two More Italians Shot Uke R»t» In the Jail. Walsenburg, Colo., March 15.—Four bodies are now In the hands of the coroner of Huerlano county as the result of the vengeance wreaked on the Italian miners who were charged with the killing of Abner Hixon and two more Italians unquestionably have been riddled • with • bullets - by friends of the popular ; salpqnkeepeiv A - few- hours' 'almost certainly will bring the discovery of all the bodies. Every man against whom there was the slightest suspicion of complicity in the killing has met with summary and frightful punishment. The mob's work was not completed until yesterday. After having killed three of the suspected homicides the mob came to the county jail here. Rochetto, who had been •wounded in the breast during the wagon fusil- ade at Bear"Creek'was'found asleep in the calaboose with Lorenzo. The Italians begged plteously for mercy, but to no avail. One of the first shots brought relief to Lorenzo.whom the men seemed to regard with especial hatred as the officially declared murderer. Rochetto writhed and groaned in intense agony for twenty minutes before he died. He was shot full of .bullets. Indiana Solon. May Be Arrested.
