CRKSTOX, la., Oct. 19.—Tho first execution to take place in Iowa since the passage of the law making capital punishment a possibility, occurred today, when James Dooley was hanged in the penitentiary at Fort Madison for the murder of his aunt, Mrs. James Coons, and her 10 year old daughter, Dooley Went to the gallows without faltering and his remarkable nerve displayed during all the time since his arrest did not desert him at the supreme moment. Tho drop was sprung at 13:14, his neck not being broken . by the fall, and life was not pronounced extinct until 12:33, death being caused bj strangulation. The murder was the most atrocious ever committed in this portion of the state. The excitement at the time was intense and it was with difficulty thut a lynching was averted. James Coons, with his wife and daughter, lived on a vented farm near Prescott, la,, although Coons was a well to do farmer and owned a farm near by. The house in which the family lived wus a miserable hovel, having only one room, in which the whole family lived, prepared their meals and slept With them lived their hired man, James Dooley, a nephew of Mrs. Coons, aged 16 years. On the llth of May, 1893, Coons had occasion to be absent for the day. On his return he found his wife and daughter lying on the bed dead, hav ing been murdered by being shot. Mrs. Coons' clothes •were badly disarranged, hei hands bound, and her body gave evidence of having been ravished, but whether before death or after, could not bo told.

He was captured the next day at 'Villisca J and when charged with the crime denied Having committed the deed, and st'outly asserted his innocence. He persisted in .this statement until shortly after be- in^ placed in jail at Corning, when .Judge S. R. Davis of this city secured an_uilei;yie-,v W'th him and secured his first cpufessiou. , In this confession Dooley states that he had been drinking some that morning, and that when he went home Mrs. Coons severely reprimanded him for his carelessness in allowing some of the cattle to break into -an adjoining field. This so enraged him that he struck her several times with a padlock that he had been carrying in his pocket. Mrs. Coons was struggling • bard to free herself when Dooley shot her, killing her instantly. Dooley then bound her hands together and dragged her body to the bed and placed her on it. At this moment the little girl came - a , in, and Dooley seeing- that she knew his ' Crime, 'mnrdert"! her and placed her body alongside that of her mother. Dooley would not admit and has always denied that he ravished Mrs. Coons or even tried to. lie was tried in the district court at Corning 1 , convicted and sentenced to be hanged. The case was subsequently carried to the supreme court, which aflirmed the decision of the lower court. From the time of his arrest Dooley has shown the most stolid indifference as to his fate. He does not seem to have any idea of the enormity of his crime. The IrlnU Orator Greeted With a Nearly a, Panic. NEW YORK, Oct 13.—The World this morning says: "The reception given by the Irish National Federation to Edward Blake, M. P., at the Lenox lyceum last night was productive of some results nevei dreamed of by its originators. In tha heat of the meeting, and while all eyes were turned upon Mr. Blake as he stood on the platform delivering one of his most impressive speeches, a short, stoutly built, frowsily dressed, bent old walked swiftly around the back of tho front tier of boxes until ho reached the last nearest the platform and to the left of the proscenium arch. In his hand he carried an old,, bulky, green gingham umbrella, which he seemed to hold with peculiar tender^ ness. Outside the box he stopped, hesitated a moment, and then entering, 'tcck a chair in a corner nearest the "The old man left in a moment.

Mr. Blake's address was mainly t defense of the coalition policy lately idopted by the home rulers in refer- tneo to the liberal party." SUIT AGAINST HENRY VILLARD WHITE HOUSE IMPROVEMENTS Mftny Changes inside and Oat of the Ex- ccntlvo Mansion. WASHINGTON, Oct. 10.—When the president returns to the white house next week he will find 1 tho interior of the mansion greatly improved. The workmen have been in possession of tho house since the president loft Washington, and the result of their labors ia very apparent in the great east room and the blue parlor. The decorations in the oast room have been changed from silver to gold. The woodwork, which heretofore has been silvery white, has been changed to white and gold. The columns, the mantels and tho woodwork around the windows and doors have been tipped with gold, addincr to the beauty and richness of the apartment^ Crystal chandeliers have been provided and a neW carpet to harmonize with the brilliant decorations will be put down during the present week. The blue parlor, in which the president was married, and in which he holds official receptions and executive entertainments, has been provided TV!tn a new carpet to match the silk decorations and tho walls. It is a beautiful pattern of electric blue, with laurel loaves of a shade lighter. It was selected by Mrs. Cleveland and was made for the blue room. The red parlor, which is the pride of Mrs. Cleveland, has been provided with a new carpet to match the 'rich, warm decorations Which were designed under tho supervision of Mrs. Cleveland. New lace curtains are to hang from the windows of the blue and red parlors, and from those of the state dining room. Several additions had been made to the conservatory and many rare and beautiful plants are housed for winter blooming.', The work of painting the exterior of the building is Hearing completion. The gilding of tho fence tips and the iron work is all that is retjtu'red of the painters. The scaffolding has been removed, and the old mansion looks as bright and clean inside as out The foot walk from the gateways to the portico has been laid in granolithic pavement The work dragged along and Colonel Wilson was fearful that the contractors were going to make an all- winter job of it. In order to prepare the bed for the cement they employed a seventeen ton steam roller, which was continually getting stuck in mud.' At last the work is completed and the improvement is a commendable one. The driveway might be resurfaced with asphalt to hide its ugly cracks and patches, but it is understood that tho appropriation was not sufficient to cover both the driveway and the footpath. It appears to be the policy of those who have anything to do with providing for the improvement of public buildings to leave something to be done "next year." The present driveway to the executive^ mansion is positively disgraceful. The handsome granolithic footwalks bring out its defects more conspicuously. ABOLISHED FREE PASSES.

THOMAS REED IN CHICAGO Repudiates the Sensational Arbor Interview* Ann rhlnkA the Democratic Party Will Cut tho Tariff Still Deeper If It is Encouraged by Success In the No- veiuhcr Elections. it was of thi! 1 re-enact said: "1 CHICAGO, Oct. 10.—Thomas B. Reed oE Maine arrived in the city last nigh) and is the guest of Congressman J. Frank Aldrich at the Chicago Beach hotel.* When asked this morning about an alleged interview said to hav« been had with him in Ann Arbor. Mich., in which he was quoted as crifc icising the McKinley bill and say' ing ho did not . think necessary for the safety republican party that it sttch a measure, Mr. Reed never authorized any such interview a) Ann Arbor. I said nothing whatovei to justify it. I have not been criticis ing the acts and doings of the Fifty 6rst congress, in which I myself tool part. There is nothing whatever in thi purport of that interview which I rec agnize as having come from me. I) anything of the sort was said, it musi be a distortion of some running social conversation." "Do you think there will be any kind of tariff legislation soon after the meet' ing of the next congress?" If the democrats are successful, the; will endeavor to harass the country fai more. All the statements of all the leaders from Cleveland down show this conclusively. If the republicans are chosen, it is not a question of choicii with them—the senate being demo< cratic and the president a democrat— 1 either wholly or partially; the republi cans cannot take any positive action. As the business of this country needd quiet, that is a simple way to get it." Asked as to his views on the siuation in New York Mr. Reed said: "It looks to me as if we wore going to have 3 strong republican victory in New York, extending to the city; of course, nobody is a prophet on elections. I simply give you my opinion." "VVhat are your views as to the nexl house?" "It seems so necessary for the peaca and quiet of the country and to stop the clamor of the democratic leaders that I expect to see the next house republican and elected with the great goad will of a largo portion of the democratic party." Mr. Reed will speak at a mass meeting tomorrow night at the Second regiment armory. Sunday ho will take a much needed "re&t. Monday night he will speak at a banquet given in hie honor at the Auditorium hotel by the Hamilton club, and Tuesday he has consented to speak for an hour somewhere in the northwest part of tho city. He leaves Tuesday night for Minnesota and from there will go to Waterloo, la., where he will take part in the campaign which is now on in David Hendei'son's old district. NEW EIGHT CLUB LEAGUE.

DES MOINES, Oct. 19.—Thursday was the big day of the fall meeting ac the Capital City Driving park. The weather was the worst of the week for' the races, and the attendance was about 6,000. Owing to a high wind the Oracle was several seconds slow. The' great race on the card was the contest' between Joe Patchen and Strathben-y. Online was advertised'to go but failed to appear. The contest between tho two horses, however, was a good one, barring the difficulty of making fast time against, the' wind. .. The first heat was won by Patchen in 3:05%, by only half a length, which was a virtual lowering of Strathberry's record by half a second. The quarters were :39, 1:01%, 1:35J-. The second heat was a most difficult one, the wind blowing a gale in the faces of the contestants. The quarters were :34, 1:08%, 1:43%, 2:11}, showing the last quarter was: gone in 37%. The -third.heat was gone in comparative calm, the wind having died down,and a slight rain having laid the dust. Patchen won it by a nose in 2:08%. though he was* pushed by Sti-athberry, who was getting tired. Jack Curry drove Patchon and John Atkinson was behind the Iowa horse. The last heat by quarters was :30%, 1:05, 1:38%, 3:08%, last quarter in a two minute clip, Fred K went against his pacing 1 record of 3:10^, aud did the mile in 2;09%. Would Have Jockeys Fined by the Startei Instead of by the Judges. NEW YOEK, Oct. 17.—Starter James C. Rowo is out in a long letter suggesting race track reforms. He would lika to see jockeys and trainers licensed, and would like to see the punishment of joSkeys vested in the starter instead of the judges, with right of appeal to the stewards. He thinks suspension, 1 now the only punishment, is too severe, 41 except in extreme cases. In part he Bays: "I think the best plan would be tdj give the starter full power and that the fines he inflicts should be heavy, say from $350 to $500. This would touch.; the pockets of the employers and make them more careful in the order's given 1 jockeys about behaving at the post. "Henry of Navarre is tho best horse I have seen this year. Butterflies is the' best of the 2-year-olds. It is an old turf maxim that when the fillies boat the colts the 2-year-olds are not of very high class. But this does not de?,_ tract from the merits of Butterflies,! who is very fast. In general, I do not think we have as good horses as wei once had. The new race courses help the runners in cutting seconds as much as'the bicycle sulkies aid the trotters. If the old time races at long distances were revived the old stamp of horses might come in again." Bookmaker McDonald also favors the overhauling of the jockey question. M'GLYNN ANSWERS THE A. P.
