THE REPUBLICAN, ALGO^A, IOWA, UJN8 ARE TOO Unsatisfactory Test of Armament . of Battleship Indiana. CLAIMANTS TO A FORTUNE. •thirteen and Eight Inch Guns So I'lAcftd a» Not to Operate In Action »9 nesSsrnprt-tJaiiBerous to Ship and CUinnera. Private advicos received in. rh.iludel- ; phia convey the information direct ifrom on"u:e.rs of the new battle ship lindUuiii, that the result of the gun trials ,nt sea of that big' fighting macDlne ilias been disappointing and unsatis- jfactory. Her armament consists of •ifour 13-inch gums, each 40 foeb long •and weighing 03 tons, mounted in pairs 'in two main turrets. Eight 8-itieh guns arc mounted in pairs in the four ismaller turrets on the upper decic, four JG-inc.h guns are mounted in broadside lin the upper casein ant amidships, witJi ia secondary battery of 20 G-poundeir and 4 1-pound or rapid firing guns and ,4 Catlings in the military tops. This jforms the heaviest and most diversified I armament ever placed in n.ny vessel of |like dimensions. Its weight, is c.iior- imous, and the amount of incln.1 thrown ,nt one complete discharge of the ma.in ilbattary alone would be 0,080 pounds. The result of her sea trial shows that these guns are too big tuid are not [placed so as to be operated in action 'as designer!. The 2 13-inch guns and the 4 S-inch guns mounted in turrets ifore and aft wore meant to silioot [straight ahead or straight astcr.n. But in trial it was impossible, to shoot the 8-inch guns within more, than ISO de- igrees of a.straight line forward or a.fter without great danger to the men in tJie main turrets just beneath Ihcm. The discharge of the big gnus in U»o upper turrets on the trial almost blew the .head off a gunner's mate who was in the sighting tower of the main turret- It was found impossible., also, to operate the 13-inch guns in a brositliside, because the discharge would unsettle if •it did not entirely wreck the upper turrets. When fired straight ahead o,n the trial trip the- explosion caused the iron battle- hatches on the main deck to fly off and otherwise shook things up. The charge for one of these big guns varies from -175 to 525 pounds of hex- ngonnl powder, and naval experts fear that the ship would cripple herself before she had bec.n in action half an hour. 'The same trouble will be encountered with the MOBSEI chusetts, the exact counterpart and sister ship of tlio Indiana. DURRANT STUDYING LAW. 1 Blanche Lament's Allejyod Slnyor Way \ Not r.f Hanged Soon. \ On April 0 next, a year will have passed since the murdr.-r of Blanche Lament, And .yet. Theodore.

Samuel II. Chadwick, George Chadwick, Susan Chadwick and Snren Chadwick nre interested in a fortune left in England by Sir Andrew Chadwick. This is n peculiar case and one. of long standing-. The founder of the family fortune referred to above was a favorite soldier in the palace guard of Queen Anne, and once hud the good fortune to catch her majesty as she fell down- ptairs, thereby saving her, supposedly, from serious injury. This, at least, Was the explanation that was given out for knighting Chadwick. It used to be hinted pretty strongly, however, by his grandson, the father of George Chadwick, who lives at Wilmington, Del., that there was another story in it. The old man is dead now, but there are those living here who will remember that he used to express skepticism ns to the manner of her majesty's getting into Chadwick's arms at the foot of the stairs on the occasion referred to, intimating pretty clearly his opinion that it was not the result of a fall at all. The Chadwicks who live at Wilmingto, Del., have never, so far as known, disturbed themselves much about the real or imaginary English estate. They are quiet working people, and probably think their tradesmen's wages are better than a chase after English fortunes. A POT OF GOLD. Unearthed hy a Farmer In Georgia— Gives Half 1o rni;lo SiliiJ. A treasure of $13,00!) in gold and silver was unearthed by a farmer in his field six miles from Fort Valley, Ga., the other afternoon. Young Oven Hartley, who lives on Ed You•;<•!•';; vhmtation., was plowing when lie came upon a large rock. He and two other men moved the rock so as to let the plow pass. When about to resume plowing Hartley saw something that looked like the edge of a stone jar. He finally dug up au old earthenware receptacle containing gold, silver and greenback's. The coin amounted to $18,000. The greenbacks were so badly damaged that it was impossible to count them. Hartley was told that half of the money belonged to the government, and so he took it to Perry and deposited it with the county treasurer, who has if. INSIDE THE ARCTIC CIRCLE* Plucky American Wotnnu Vvho Mas itt* vaded the i'olar Ke#lons. It is a matter of news that Mrs, Willis, of Tacorna, has gone into the far north in search of a business opening, but there may be some readers who have heard of the brave pioneer, and it ji for their benefit that the following dispatch, sent from Tacoimx, Wash., is quoted: Mrs. Willis, of Taconm, the first white woman to attempt a journey through the wildest aoid most dangerous part of Alaska, left to-day on tlie steamer \Vil- lapa for Circle City, situated on the YukO'ii river, just inside the arctic rim. She made the journey last year and found an admirable opening for a bakery, and returned here for the necessary supplies. She takes two sleds heavily loaded, which will be hauled over the snow 1,000 miles by dogs. With her own hands she will fell trees and build two canoes in which to cross Lake Lhidernian <and go down two rivers to Circle City. River navigation is exceedingly dangerous, and in several places it. is necessary to carry the canoes around high waterfalls. Speaking of the venture, she said: "Yes, it is quite an undertaking, but there is no real danger. Hundreds of weak men successfully accomplished the journey. All it requires is pluck, energy and plenty of nerve. Dogs afford me ample protection from wild animals. I see no reason why a woman should not brave the perils of a short journey like this to make a 'stake.' "My husband is an invalid, and the opportunity for the establishment of a bakery a.t' Circle City is good. Auy honest, persevering woman can engage in a profitable and respectable business there and return in a few years with thousands of dolhuy-.'' NEW CURE FOR CATALEPSY. Superintendent Kogors Uses a Preparation Made from Sheep Thyroid Gland3. Several months ago Superintendent Rogers, of the noiUhern Indiana hospital for tlie insane, began the use of a preparation made, from the thyroid glands of sheep for the cure of catalepsy, and the tests with the new dis- nnvorv tire so satisfactory that he is pre- OBJECTS TO TflU WHEEL Vetoes Bicycle ftidtiag b# Wiv-ea of Cabinet Officers. f hl» Decision Prompted by tlio Avowed Intention of the Liullwi to Partiel" pate In a Bicycle Drill for Charity. A dispatch to the Boston Globe from Washington says: President Cleveland has not often posed in the role of an arbiter of the social affairs of the administration, and, so far ns known, never before has he been called upon to express his opinion as tb what the wives of the members of the cabinet should or should not do. But if report is correct, Mr. Cleveland has placed an executive veto upon the cabinet ladies riding bicycles. Washington is such a paradise for the wheel that the sight of a senator, a member of tlie diplomatic corps, a judge of the supreme court, or the most fashionable girls in the swell set astride a wheel no longer calls for comment. Recently some of the young-members of the swell set conceived the idea of getting up a bicycle drill for charity, and some of the wives of the cabinet ministers allowed the use of their names as patronesses. It is said that from being passive spectators they manifested a tendency to become active participants in the affair. This coming to the ears of the president, it is said, he plainly placed himself on record .'is being opposed to women no longer in their first youth riding the bicycle. lie does not object to the new woman or to her riding a bicycle if she is young, but he draws the line when she aproaches middle age, and it is for this reason that many of the most prominent women in official circles •will not be seen riding for charity.

The Otoe and Missouri Indians, who have had a claim nyainst settlers who bought their lauds in Kansas and Nebraska about 15 years ag-o, may receive the remainder of their money if the recommendation of the secretary of the interior is aeted upon. About S.'.O white men bought their lauds, but never made final payments. The secretary has suggested to Commissioner of Indian Affairs Browning that he make a proposition to these Indians that they give the settlers a rebate of five years' interest, and an extension of five years' time for payment of interest and principal. There is now about $185,000 principal due r-'.id ubotit $70,000 interest. The settlers claim that bad crops have prevented them from making final payment on their lands, IMPOSED A FINE ON HIMSELF. Kentucky Judjjn 11 Vlrtini of Ilia Own Court Ilultt. Judge Toney. of the law and equity court at Louisville. Ky., was a victim of his own rule the other day. During the last week- he has been annoyed and tlie trial of several cases have been delayed by the tardiness of jurors. In each instance the judge has fined the derelict juror five dollars for contempt. The other morning Judge Toney came into court five minutes late, and upon taking the, lieneh read himself a short lesson upon the necessity of punctuality, and said he wa.s sorry to note he was late. Turning to Clerk Walker, he said: "Mr. Clerk, enter a fine of five dollars for contempt against the court." Judge Toney afterwards remitted all fines. PUT SIX TRAMPS TO FLIGHT. MARTHA KILLED THB B£AR\ | Ilef littBb&fid, Who Mad Vtifittifltti Into nruln's Domain. Mai-tin Besant, A farmer living at the foot of Sugar Loaf mountain, Pennsylvania, narrowly escaped being torn to pieces by a bear which he tried to trap recently. To his wife, Martha, he owes his life. For some time Farmer Besant has been annoyed by bruin. The barn, and sheep pens were entered periodically, and some of the domestic animals disappeared. That the thief was a bea>r Besant felt convinced, so he decided to set a trap for the marauder. Accordingly he dug a pit six feet deep in the path to the barn. This he covered over With tree limbs and shrubs. At an early hour the other morning the Besants were aroused by the piercing screams of a pig. The farmer lost no time in getting into his boots and out toward the barn. In his haste he forgot about the hole, and was rudely reminded of it by tumbling in on top of a good-sized black bear and one of his shoats. The shock seemed to be shared by bruin as much as the farmer, and the bear made an effort to get out. Seeing this Besant mustered enough courage to help the bear, but the latter, after getting his forepaws on the edge, could get no farther, and there he hung. The shouts of the farmer attracted his wife, who took the precaution to arm herself with a gun before venturing down the path. The huge and ugly head sticking over the edge of the hole did not, send her into hysterics. Sizing up the situation, she resolved to take no chances. Encouraging- her husband, she moved for a point of vantage, and placing the barrel of the guii close to bruin's ear, she sent tho contents of both barrels into him. With a death grunt, the bear tumbled back upon the farmer. The shot had been effective, and old bruin breathed his lost while lying upon Bosonfc. When helped out of tho hole Besant fell in a faint at hi.s wife's feet.

While attending- to her household duties the other day, iu the absence of her husband, Mrs. Hurry Khodes. of Huguenot, four miles north of Port Jarvis, T^i. Y., saw six tramps enter her yard. Mrs. Rhodes had just given two tramps breakfast, ami .she recognized them among the six. She secured a revolver, called the dog- aud awaited the results. The tramps asked for food. She placed a plate of cold meat and a loaf of bread on the table, but they refi'.Fod to accept it. "A hot dinner, and quick about it, too," said one. Mrs. Rhodes set the clog- on the ruffians and fired her revolver over their heads. The tramps fled. covery are so satisfactory that he is pr paring to give the matter publicity through the medical journals. Two cases, he says, have been remarkable in their results. One was that of a patient who had lain in a trance for tftiree years, sleeping soundly at night, but lying all day with his eyes half open and evidently in an unconscious state. Another was an epileptic who had no power of locomotion, but would stand in' any position placed for hours at a time. In both of these cases the effects of the preparation have been remarkable, the epileptic being entirely cured, and the "trance" patient being so far restored that he sits up and talks rationally. He is not yet able to move about, but tlie superintendent thinks liis ultimate cure is assured. On one occasion, during Jhq treatment of these patients, the medicine gave out and the patients grew worse, but recovered readily the lost ground when the treatment was resumed. INDIAN GIRL GETS A DIVORC&. Husba»«l Brands Her with Skull and Crossbones Before DcBcrtiou. The first divorce ever granted to a Kiowa Indian, or, in fact, to any member of the affiliated tribes of the Ki- owas, Commanches or Caddoes, was granted in the El Ileno (0. T.) district court tlie other day. The plaintiff in the case is a full-blooded Kiowa girl named Bealhoo Koo. She alleged that two years a,go she was abducted by a half-breed Coddo, named Walter Upday, and token to Fort Smith, Ark., but she escaped and started for the Darlington Indian agency, Oklahoma, on foot. Upday followed within a few weeks, and later married the girl, the Indian wedding ceremony being used. The first night of the honeymoon he branded a skull and crossbone on her arm and gave her a potion, which she refused to take and which proved to be poison. Within 24 hours he deserted her. l!r.-.nitly Mrs. Upday became enamored of a Kiowa Indian, »unl, upon being '. Jld that a marriage could not take ""place until a divorce was secured, she enlisted the sympathy of white friends. The court granted the divorce and restored the girl's maiden name. Bowen Sykes Kills Four and Seriously 'Wounds Six Others In Florida. In a desperate battle with regulators Bovven Sykes shot four men fatally^and wounded six others more or less seriously. Sykes lives in tlie Peru neighborhood of Hillsboro county, Fla., and for some cause has incurred the enmity of his neighbors. Within th,e ]ast ten days he has received notices to leave under threats of death. Wednesday he found a rudely drawn coffin on his front door and underneath the statement that unless he left immediately he would be- killed. Sykes dete.rmin.ed not to lea.ve, and prepared to defend himself against the expected attack. The attack came Thursday morning aboiit one o'clock. At that hour, a mob of 35 masked men broke down the door and entered Syke's house. Sykes was ready, and as the regulators entered he opened fire with a rifle. Sykef. fired as rapidly as possible, a.nd soon four of the regulators were down and the others fled in texror. He continued to fire at the fugitives as long as they were in range, and is confident six others were wounded. Sykes then tore the masks from the four men who had faller,, and found, that they were John and Alonzo Barnes, John Gilliland and Dennis Driggers. The Barnes brothers were shot through the head and cannot live. Gilliland and Driggers were shot in tlie chest a.nd their wounds are also fatal. Sykes immediately came to Plant City and reported t;he tragedy, and swore out warrants for the regulators. Officers went out to arrest the. members of the mob. They found the four masked men dying and report that six others <ire too badly wounded to be moved. Nearly ever man in the neighborhood was hurt. There wa.s a wounded person in nearly every hou.se. Sykes says he has done nothing to be "regulated for" and proposes to remain in the neighborhood if he has to kill every man in it. THE Minneapolis & St, Louis R, R. Co. N£W TRAIN TO ST.

SUPES SUE SARAH BERNHARDT. Embryo Thespians ut Washington Seek to Recover Certain Stipends. Sixteen budding Thespians who were engaged to represent the mob, the rabble, the army 01' the chorus, as occasion demanded, in Sarah Beruhardt's plays in Washington have appeared in 'court in suits against the divine Sarah for sums ranging from 25 cents to $1.50. They claim that they were engaged to support the great French actress during her Washington engagement, but that at the last moment a lot of Columbian university boys, who wanted the fun and experience, volunteered their services for nothing. The average super is not overburdened with wealth after a week's engagement, but the offer of the students meant a still further saving Facts Concerning the Inventor of the Much Discussed Tube. William Crookes, whose tubes have recently come into such general notice, was born in London in 1832, and at an early age turned his attention to photog • raphy. When he was 17 years old he gained the Ashburton scholarship in the Royal college of chemistry. At ths age of 23 he was appointed superintendent of the meteorological department of the Uadcliffie observatory at Oxford. In 1801, while examining the residues from a sulphuric acid works, he discovered the new metallic element, thallium. This was followed by his election as a fellow of the Royal society. In n paper before the society he stated that he had "succeeded in obtaining a vacuum so nearly approaching perfection that the pressure on it was only four- mi lliontlis of an atmosphere." These experiments led to very important results, for it was found that in such au extreme vacuum gases pass into an ultra-gaseous state.which Prof. Crookes terms a state of "radiant matter," and, further, these extreme vacua opened up the way for the incandescent lamp. SOLD BED. OF A LAKE. Unknown Persons Perpetrate a Swindle at Koscominon, Mich. Two years ago a man from Nebraska landed in Koscommon, Mich., calling- himself a land agent and notary public. He claimed ho was sent by prominent parties to effect a settlement of about 100 Germaui families in lloscommon. county. lie appeared before the board of supervisors and explained his plan to their satisfaction. The Nebraska man passed a great part of his time in the clerk's and register of deeds' office, examining fhe. records an<l drawing- maps. After a few weeks' sUi.y ho disappeared and was no.ve.r seen or heard of again. Not long ago deeds were presented to the register of deeds of this county which upon examination proved to be deeds of lands lying in the middle of Houghton Lake. Further investigation l>rought to light the fact, that sr.vcral like deeds had been already recorded. All persons implicated iin the deal are outsiders, and so far as known have their headquarters in Chicago. How many acres have be.cn sold is still unknown, but it is already ascertained with certainty that several parsons residing in other sta.teshave purchased a,nd are now holding a title on farms on the bottom of Houghton lake, that arc covered by twenty or thirty feet of water. WILL STAY WITH GEN. BOOTH. Illinois Division of tlio Salvation Army Will Not Secede. Tihe Salvation Army division of Illinois will not secede. It will remain true to Gen. Booth. This much was determined at a council of officers held at the barracks in. Peoria the ollher morning. It was a secret meeting, no one bntofficers being admitted. Col. Nicol, the representative of Gen. P>ooth, was present, and made a lengthy address. He went into all tlie details of the split in the army, and. said it was a family affair. He urged the nrmy of Illinois to remain true to Gen. Bootfli. At the conclusion of the debate, it. was decided without a dissenting vote, to remain with the present army and not join the seceders. A second council of the army wa.s held in the afternoon, open to officers and soldiers alike. The business of the morning was explained and ratified. Ma.i. Eadie left at night for New York, and expects to sail in a few'days for England. Ho has been grunted leave of absence. The congress adjourned ia the evening. & COACHES.

If you place a ten-cent piece iu one of these it is held in place until every hole in the book is filled and there are five dollars saved, says the Boston Journal.
