WEBSTER CITY, Nov. 34.—Pretty Mrs. ' Barney Kelly and her sister, Miss - Agnes Clark, took a small rawhide ^ horsewhip and went on the warpath, 'looking for H. H.

He was not injured seriously. Po*«M tif fcooftl Authorities A Milk And flf««d ticket*. CKBAfc RA1-ID8, Nov. 26.—City Physi- clan Coulter received in f espouse to an inquiry a communication froin the state board of health stating that the local board certainly had power and authority to stop the use of milk and bread tickets, and also to stop the delivery of milk at all suspected sources if the board hare good reason to believe they are dangerous to the public health. Besides, the state board has forbidden it. Scarlet fever' is believed to have been spread in Cedar Kapids by the use of mil)£ and bread tickets, which some dealers refused to discontinue. WALT BUTLER MISSING, ' CRESTON ITEMS. .Alleged , $£?' Robber Arrested--Burglar Sentenced. "CHE6TON, Nov. 35,—Local officers have captured a man supposed to have '•Tjeen connected with the Malvern bank 'robbery, in which $3,000 was obtained. The fellow was arrested at a house of all fame. He has been in the city sever?! weeks, and has frequently raen- " tioned the Malvern robbery. He made a terrible resistance when arrested and will not talk. The description of one of the robbers fits the prisoners ex' actly, and the officers are confident ' they-have the right man. • B.

Walt H, Butler, ex-congressman from the Fourth district, now principal of the Normal College at Oelwein, disappeared from that place on the afternoon of the 33d and no trace of him can be found. He bought a ticket for Falrbank for the 4:30 train south, and that was the last seen of him. His wife and son in West Union are wild with anxiety and apprehension. No satisfactory theory is advanced as to his disappearance. CONDENSED 1TKMS. 15. C., NW. 2l>.— Secretary Gfeshahl, on behalf of the United SlateSj and Minister Kufind, oft behalf bf Japan, have affixed theif signatures to a neW treaty of ahiity and commerce and it only aWaits ratification by the two govef nmehtSi Gf eshatn will transmit the,new treaty td this senate as soon as it assembles and Kurino will forward it td Japan for the approval of 'the emperor and pf ivy council. Coming at this time it is considered to have significance beyond its mere terms as evidence of the established cordiality. between the countries when foreign powers are tiying' to make it appear that the United abates has been snubbed by Japan. , To Japan it is of supreme importance as it con' siders a new series of treaties with western powers fully as important as it was with China, since they giVe^that country full recognition by the civSfized nations. As an evidence Of this when the minister to Great Britain recently concluded a similar treaty with that country, he was decorated with the highest orders of the, empire and raised to nobility. The signing of the pres ent treaty concludes a labor which has been in progress for fifty years. It was with a view to closing 'this work that Kurino was taken from an important pose in the Japanese foreign office and sent to Washington. Similar treaties are under negotiation with France and Switzerland and the action of the United States it is believed will have a yery favorable effect in bringing them to a successful close. RETALIATION. Mrs. W. A, Church, wife of a farmer living near Hampton, 'was killed by being thrown from a carriage. Mrs. Church was prominent in the Pythian sisters and was one of the grand officers in the state organization last yeari In the district court of Lee county Mrs. Annie Timmermeyer, for herself and three children, has begun suit against John S. Schneiderineir, a Fort Madison saloonkeeper, for $30,000 damages. She claims defendant sold her late husband liquor, from the excessive drinking of -which he died October 39. Des Moines dispatch: Qov. Jackson. in a letter to Chairman Blythe, of the republican state central committee, states that he will under no circumstances be a candidate for renomina tion. He gives as his reason that he is a poor man and cannot afford to spend another term in an office which is not a remunerative one. The postoffice lock boxes of the Order of Railway Conductors and T. M. Sinclair & Co., pork packers, at Cedar Rapids, were opened by unknown parties and robbed of over fifty letters containing money and express orders and large bank drafts. Part of the letters were found later in -a stairway. It cannot, be determined how much in currency was taken from' the letters nor how many letters are missing. The fourteen-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. Lawson, of Grant township, Union; county, had a perilous and exciting experience. He was breaking a colt when the saddle girth broke, and the young lad's foot caught in the bridle rein. In this perilous position he was dragged over the field, and but for the breaking of the rein his brains would have been crushed out. As it was, he -escaped with severe bruises and a broken limb. His mother witnessed the accident. Editor James Liddle, of the Preston Times, who killed himself near that city, as it .develops, did not commit suicide in a fit of temporary despondency. He had been contemplating the act for nearly a year. Before taking his own life he wrote a brief but graphic 'description of his deed, as if it had already occurred, even to writing a display heading for the article, He then, after drawing a check in favor of h'is mother, and another in favor of his partner, Hicks, to cover the balance pf hi? funds in bank,' wrote a brief bu,t note spying he was worn a»d of Ufe an4 asking the e^re of all for his mother and sister. After ilis mangled remains were found his colabpreps in the office fpund the copy he bad written for their paper. He leaves a mother and Bister at Ames pf friends, Radical cough cure, and ewes jvbeo ptbers Germany's Antipathetic Policy Toward the United Statea. WASHINGTON, Nov. 23.—The indications multiply that ^Germany id pursuing a repressive policy toward importations from the. United States that may call, for retaliation. The United States consul, Robertson, at Hamburg, reports that the imperial government has set on foot a movement to exclude American dried and evaporated apples, on the ground that they are deleterious through containing zinc taken from the frames on which they are dried. The consul suggests that wooden frames be substituted. The enclosures with 'the report show the German papers have attacked American seeds, such as clover, timothy, etc., as adulterated and worthless. BOND ISSUE. Tff Wnll Street Financiers W1U Take All of It NEW YORK, Nov. 33.—Subscriptions for an amount greater than the entire issue of .$50,000,000 of government fives will be made by a number of banks and other financial institutions of New York, including some foreign capital This has been decided after a number of conferences, and it has been settlec also . that the members to this agree' oient all make their bids separately but at exactly the same price. This action insures the success of the loan which is now certain to be over sub' scribed. The figures which the bank ers in the agreement will bid for tho bonds are not made public but it is understood will allow a good profit to the government. •• . •FIENDISH CRIME; Cliurles Hart Slakes a Confession of Guilt PAUI.IHNG, 0,, Nov. 30.—Charles Hart who with his brother-in-law, Clarence Brindle, is held for the fiendish mur der of the children, JSlsie and Ashbj Good, has confessed. He ravished th little girl, and murdered both, Afte his confession the sheriff went to a spot indicated by Hart and dug up th knife with which the deed was done For Modern Cooking. As a matter of useful information maybe stated that whenever, a cooking receipt calls for a baking powder the "Royal" should be used. The receipt will be found to work better and surer, and the bread, biscuit, rolls, cakes, dumplings,.- crusts, puddings, crullers or whatever made, will be produced sweeter, lighter, finer flavored, more dainty, palatable and wholesome, Besides, the "Royal" will go further or has greater leavening power, and is therefore more economical than any other powder, Many receipts »s published still call for crjam of tartar and soda, the old fashioned way of raising. Modern eooking a»d expert cooks do not sane* tion this old way. In all such receipts the Royal Baking Ppwder should be substituted without fail. The greatest adepts in the culinary art are particular to use the Royal only,, and the. authors of the most p'ppuiar cpok books and the teachers of thesucr cegjsfuj cooking schools, w}tb whom tJ}e best resultfc are'imperative, are carefiil tp impress tbeir readers and pupils with the importance of its exclusive employment.

Heretofore the department has been uhdef- the control of the mayor. He will ask the legislature fof • enactment of a law to make the reform permanent. The populist state central commit* teemen of Nebraska have sprung a surprise On their republican brethren. They announce that in the ivent of the republicans contesting the election of Judge Holcotnb as governor, they would retaliate by contest- ng the election ,of every republican candidate. At Independent headquarters . recently, Congressman Bryan, ix-At'torney General Leese and Judge Bi'oady were preparing papers with this object in view. The election of the balance of the republican state ticket, aside from Majors, has not heretofore been questioned, but the action of the populists indicates' that they propose to make matters very interesting 1 for their opponents. Mr. R. ]?. Kolb, populist candidate for governor of Alabama at the recent election, has issued a manifesto in which he says that he was elected governor and cheated out of the place by fraud, and that he will be in Montgomery on the 1st of December for the purpose of taking the oath of office. His address concludes as follows: "I appeal to my friends and supporters from all parts of the state to be in Montgomery on the first day of December, 1894, there and then to give me their aid and support in a lawful and peaceable manner to vindicate their liberties. I counsel against any unlawful demonstrations, but ask the presence and co-operation of free men in a necessary effort to enforce the law and carry out the will of the people." At the recent meeting of the National Grange Patrons of Husbandry, at Springfield, 111., Secretary Stahl of the National Farmers' congress delivered an address on the question of free delivery of mails in the rural districts. He strongly urged farmers to press the matter and criticized Postmaster General Bissell for being unfriendly to the project. This has long been the pet scheme of the grange, which claims to have been the originators of it. Mr. Jones, from the committee on agriculture, made a report in which suggestions of the matter for the improvement of the condition of the agriculturists are endorsed. The committee also reported that it would co-operate with the anti-option convention at Vicksburg to urge the passage of the Hatch bill to prevent gambling in future. This report was adopted. There was a lively time in the city hall at Chicago for a time a few days ago. Some two hundred and fifty em- ployes of the water department gathered at the office of the city comptroller and demanded the wages due them, The comptroller sent out word that the city had no money in the treasury to pay them. Instantly the crowd turned into a howling mob, shouting for bread and threatening; vengeance. They became so demonstrative that the comptroller barred the doors aind called for the:pol5ce; : A small detachment was sent, but the crowd '. was too much for them, and it was not, until a battalion of blue coats had clubbed them severely that they were driven from the corridor, The crowd^ attracted by the row sympathized with the rioters, and it was some time before the police could scatter it. Berlin dispatch: That the advent of Prince Hohenlohe as chancellor means the end, at any rate for a time, of a submissive chancellor regime as it existed during Caprivi's tenure of office, is now a generally accepted fact. Every indication is that Hohenlohe is determined to have things his own way, and the emperor is apparently inclined "to give him a free hand, In fact, there is a strong reminder' of Bis- marckJan times, flohenlohe and not the emperor is regarded as tne map who will-pulj the strings }n Germany's domestic and foreign policy » cynosure of all eyes, Newspapers pf aU shades of opinion dp not tire of oo cupying themselves with everything connected with the new chancellor, ^nd every fact, even the most trifling, is reafl with avidity throughout Ger* Hphenl'ohe, on, 'hj's' retur» to |of a shprt stay i$ order to get the affairs of hi? administration completely ip avfav for his the' recipient pf of regret at Wife tailed fttiltef *ft A the £aj« and fcWndJ No*. -2§.^-sfra£an " Has replied to the prof OSifctOn of the United States to act as & mediator between Japafi fend China.

Miniate* ijiift adds as the opinion of the Japanese foreign office thai as China diplomatic representative at Tokid it e&n submit a proposition through Dun. It is probable that the united States Minister Dun, atTokio, and Denby, at Pekih, will be used as means of ne- 1 gotiatiotts. It is believed that this policy will receive the approval of the Eltifopean powers. \VAsttiNGTofc, D. C., Nov. 24.—An authorization to Minister Dun at Tokio and to Denby at Pekin, to act as intermediaries in the peace negotiations between China and Japan, in accord' ahce with Japan's suggestion in reply to our government's note offering its good offices, has been sent them. If the offer of China to pay all the war expenses and an indemnity of 100,000,000 taels turns out to be correct, it would seem as though China has hastened to take advantage of the offer. Japan's war expenses are estimated at 180,000.000 taels, which, with the indemnity of 109,000,000 offered, would amount to $175,000,000 in our money. .It is believed Port Arthur would have fallen before now but for the fact : that the Japanese have been compelled to move with extreme caution, owing to the fact that for forty miles around the ground is honeycombed with mines which would blow invaders skyward. The artillery is especially delayed, being unable to use reeds on account of the mines. MOUNT TACOMA. P5f here stating that the e§e afttfy,- tinde* comttand tol MafshSl Cotint Dyama, eansisti about 30.000 mfen, has captured Arthur". The roads leading from Pdrt Arthur are supposed td h been mined by the r Chinese, and Japanese commander therefore" elined td take the risk df marching troops along them, they were "combelted to cut through the forest to allow thfe . age of their artillery, ammiinitt<%l trmifls, etc, The march was thto' necessarily slow. Dispatches rec&iVfedj a few days ago stated 'the .JapafiesS^ Wefe Close to the city and attacked tfae^ Chinese outposts, driving them bacfe to-; the entrenchments three times, bufc^ were repulsed each time. It is evident-, that larger attacks mtist have beett' made and the outposts compelled to- fall back upon Port Arthur. ( i Several times the town was reported, to'have been captured, but later dis*. patches have shown that these reports were inaccurate and that the Japanese, Were conducting their operations, against the place with carefulness, and that they intended when the real attack was made that it should be successful. Chee Foo, from which, place these dispatches announcing the fall of Port Arthur are sent, is a Chi-! nese city on the north coast of Shangi Tung promontory, some ninety miles' south of Port Arthur, from which it is^ separated by the gulf of Pe Chi Li. IOWA PATENT OFFICE REPORT^! Its Condition Changed and An Eruption May Occur. SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. '32,—Great excitement is caitsed throughout the Puget Sound country by what is looked upon by many as an eruption of Mount Tacoma, or Ranie.r, 4,440 feet high. The mountain was lately strangely transformed. The crest of the monarch of the Cascades is changed, the cone having fallen in, and steam can be seen rising from its crater. There was no eruption, it is believed by those most competent to judge, but great masses of rock seem to have fallen. The snow-capped cone has disappeared and a sharp, pointed peak risen in its place to the east of the crater. The changed appearance of the mountain is evident from the streets of Seattle, ninety miles distant, and thousands of people are watching the peak. But very few people have ever ascended the mountain, and at this time of the year its ascension is an absolute impossibility. There is no way of making a thorough investigation of the phenomenon. TACOMA, .Nov. 33.—Several slight shocks of earthquake have been felt in this city. Windows rattled throughout the city. The first shock was most severe, being accompanied by rumbling noises as of a distant explosion, and simultaneously a sheet of flame was observed in the eastern heavens. INDIAN TERRITORY OUTLAWS. Talk of Removing: tho United Statea Marshal. WASHINGTON, Nov. 35.—Attorney General'Olney, Secretary Lamont and Secretary Smith held 'a conference relative to sending troops to suppress the Cook gang and others in Indian Territory. They decided that the matter came under the jurisdiction of -the department of justice, and United States Marshal McAllister, of Indian Territory, was criticised for- his inaction and it is likely the attorney general will instruct the marshal ol Arkansas to summon a posse and drive the lawless element out of the territory. Thei-fe is talk of removing Marshal McAllister. GEN. FREMONT'S BODY, DES MOINES, Nov. 19, 1894.—On, Nov. 10, 1804, a patent was allowed to Mr. William Britton,'of Boonsborough.j Iowa, for a diaphragm for locomotive, boilers. This is an attachment that 1 : may be readily applied to an ordinary, locomotive cylinder and by which the; draft may be passed through the upper, I lower, or middle sets of boiler flues,' ori all at the same time, and then deflected! before reaching the stack, thus giving, the engine absolute control of the flrej and draft. Mr. Britton is a practical! engineer and has his improvement on his own engine, where a saving of! three or four tons of coal on each run,j has been accomplished. . j A patent, has been allowed to Mr.] Stephen Banfill on a fire extinguisher.!

Recently Mrs. Fremont, who lives in Los Angelos, requested that the interment take place at once and as privately fts possible. As a result the body was buried iff Mocfcland cemetery on the Hudson this afternoon under the direction of the Associated .Pioneers of the Territorial Pays oi California, FLOUR MILLS CLOSED DOWN. Because of Overproduction of Flour and » Glutted Market. ST. Louis, Nov. 24.—Every flour mill in this city has closed down for an indefinite period. The reason given by the millers is that the market is glutted with flour and suffering from over-production. A different view of the situation is taken by local dealers, who point to the fact that the mills are suddenly closed at a time when the question 'of cheaper bread is being vigorously agitated by the newspapers, So much fraud in the sale of bread has been discovered that the city council is considering a measure to compel ers to sell bread by weight.
