"The dead l#)dy of A. P. Bafnes, janitor of the JUawatha building, at 253 Thirty-sevefath street. Was found jammed into a packing case whiteh had been thrtist into a hole beneath the sidewalk on South Park av- emie. The body, which Was naked, with the exception of ft pair of socks, bore over a score of ugly wounds, half of them sufficient to cause death. The Wounds werte evidently inflicted With both the cutting edge and blunt side of an ase* and covered the body front the right temple to the knees. TWo men are fta custody charged with the crime, and Inspector Hunt is confident that tee has the men Who murdered Barnes. The men are Edward -Jordan, assistant janitor of the Tbtrilding, and Lewis Jersey, who has hung around the building. The crime. Was unquestionably committed in the basement of the apartment house, as the police discovered the clothing worn by, Barnes when last seen alive and the blood smeared axe with which the, deed was done. In addition blood was fotmd in. -several places in the basement, and signs <of 'a struggle were plainly visible. No other motive than robbery its ascribed for the crime, for Banaes, ;as far as known, had no enemies, «aid ••& watch and §30 in money whidh. fee liad upon .his person when last seen ture missing. CHICAGO, Pec. 9.—J.ohm 3J. Jersey, •who is under arrest on suspicion of being implicated in the TBarnes murder, broke down this morning :and made the following statement .to the police: "Jordan sent for me and told me to go over to the Hiawatha -flats. He then told me that he wanted me to help him carry a box out olf tihe basement. I asked him what was in the box, and he replied: 'There is.'a dead man in it. Pon't say anything about it.' I helped Jordan carry the box .out to the Vernon avenue front of the building." It was some time after this that-the box was removed by Jordam and the unknown expressman. For assisting Jordan to remove the box, Jersey says he was promised a job as assistant janitor. It is now supposed that Jordan wanted Barnes' job, wbieih pays $67 a month. Later the assistant janitor confessed that he killed Barnes in a quarrel over a missing bolt, but said it was done in self-defense. At the regular meeting of the Ministerial Association oi Pubuque a few days ago the question of the enforcement of the present state mulct law was discussed, and after a thorough review it was determined that it can be enforced in this city as elsewhere, and the association will make an effort to do so. The Iowa and Illinois Coal Company has begun a suit to enjoin the county treasurer from collecting 3000 assessed under the mulct law on its land at Ottumwa. The case ois to test the constitutionality of the law. It is based on the plea that the constitution grants every man his day in court before he can be punished for a crime. It eays these assessments are not taxes, but punishment for crime, and hence the law is unconstitutional. W. K. Smith, aged 45, committed suicide at Council Bluffs a few days ago. He was known pretty^ generally all over the state and particularly by the United States treasury officials, who have had a continuous fight with hira : for the past twenty-five years to prevent him running'independent mints and printing bank notes. Ho has served five terms in the Iowa penitentiaries for counterfeiting, * 011 V at Fort Madison and one at Anamosa. He committed suicide by horribly hack* ing his throat with a razor. Two nicks half an inch deep were knocked out of the blade, apparently at the first cut, and then he kept on cutting, sawing his neck to the bone in front and back. His windpipe and throat were severed, but he strangely missed both arteries, and death resulted from strangulation, The deed was committed at the residence of a. daughter living on Pleasant street, Po you wear shirts?.

NEW YORK, .Dec. 4.—The fact has just come out that a deal was completed here within the past few days by which, lor a million dollars in gold cash, Chili sold to Japan the crack cruiser Esmeralda, and the vessel is now well on the way to help fight China. NEW YOKK, Pec. 6.—A special dispatch from Shanghai to the Herald says: It is believed that China cannot accept Japan's condition of peace, or face the loss of prestige involved in abandoning Moukden, the home of the Mancho race, containing the ancient tombs of the dynasty. Pekin is terror stricken by the news from Port Arthur. The emperor is accusing all his ministers of deception and treachery. The storm raging around Li Hung Chang is constantly'increasing, and he is fighting, not for the retention of his decorations, but for his life. CUBE Foo, Pec. 8.—Tsung-Li-Yamen has decided to send a special ambassador to Tokio, fully authorized to negotiate a treaty of peace. This is the result of the intimation from United States Minister Penby that he and the United States minister to Japan had prepared the way for 'direct commuii- ication between China and Japan, though the nature of the preliminary negotiations are kept secret. ARMENIAN OUTRAGES. SALT liAfcfi, Utah, Pec. 6.-Official anSiety is plainly manifest at <he executive mansion over the apparent inaction of the proper authorities' to move in, the manner of the Indian invasion' in Colorado. The governor received ft communication from the sheriff of Grand county appealing for protection and asking for arms attd ammunition. The governor decided to furnish arms and ammunition to citizens, and if necessary for protection, as a last resort, the militia will be called out. Governor West received from Indian Agent Payatlg* hacio what lie considers an imprudent telegram asking that nothing be done to provoke trouble with the Ute Indians in Sdtt Juan county, The governor forwarded the telegram to the seci'e* tary of the interior with the additional information that he has furnished arms and ammunition to the unarmed citizens for their protection until some higher authority takes the matter Up. RAILWAY DISCRIMINATION. 3?e More Through ISutcs to the Knst oil Iowa 1'roductR, •CHICAGO, Pec. 9.—At a meeting of the principal western roads having lines in Iowa it was unanimously •agreed that after January 1 next the Iowa roads will make no more through rates in grain and its products from Iowa and northern Illinois points to points east of Chicago, or to points east of the eastern terminals of these western roads, but that the western roads will charge full local rates on this class of freight from the above western territory to Chicago, and the eastern roads will have to charge their full local rates from Chicago east. The Women Know Rest. Much comment has been caused by tho official reports of the United States and Canadian governments, in which are presented the evidences of the superior strength, purity and wholesomeness of the Koyal Baking Powder. It is true that the good housewife looks upon commendations of the Royal Baking Powder from scientists and official sources such as these vei-y much like "the gilding of refined gold." Her practical experience long since taught her in the most convincing way the great usefulness and superiority of the Royal article. A higher proof than this she does not want and cannot have. Yet it is pleasant for her to realize that the facts established by these great competitive tests, these scientific examinations made under direction of the Government, exactly parallel those she had before worked out in her own common-sense practical way. It does not appear thai any baking- powder, when presented in competition with the Royal, either at the Government tests or before World's Fair juries, has ever received favor or award over the Royal or made an equal showing in purity, strength or wholesomeness.

Great Britain was also asked to nominate a delegate, and immediately assented. The arrangements for the commission of investigation of the Armenian out- pages are as yet incomplete. The Turkish authorities say they believe no such murders and excesses as those described by the Armenians were doin; mitted by the regular Turkish soldiery, although they say it is possible in their operations against the rebellious villagers a great number of people may have been killed.

An Atlanta dispatch says: The ref usa? of the Georgia legislature to continue the military appropriation for the next two years is variously interpreted, but the theory most generally accepted is that the legislature is tired of the work to which tho troops have been put during-the four years of Governor Northern's administration, and the evidence that they will be similarly Used by Governor Atkinson, Governor Northern's great zeal for tho suppression of lynch law led him on several occasions to call out military companies to protect ravishers whose lives were being sought. The feeling among the legislators is that every county in the state is capable of taking care of its own affairs, and the sheriffs do not want the unwelcome aid of the military from other sources. One of the Armenian physicians at Herrick college, Marsovan, Asia Minor, has received detailed accounts of the recent repeated atrocities by Turks and Kurds at various villages in the Sassoun district. The chief of police of Moosch went with a force of soldiers to the village of Tcherig, nailed a number of the leading men, head downward, to posts, beat them and drenched them alternately with hot and cold water, The chief of police then attempted to dishonor the wife of one o ( f his victims, She seized a knvfe and plunged it into him, whereupon the soldiers made a general attack on t,he peasants. Many of the wounded wore taken prisoners to Moosch, and the whole village was charged with sedition, The villages were sacked by the Kurds and all young girls carried off.

The show of distinguished beauty, transfixed by famous artists, which 'is now taking place at the ...Academy' of Fine Arts in New York, has been an* ticipated by the Cosmopolitan Magazine in its November issue, in an article by Wm. A. Coffin, with illustrations of some of the more beautiful faces, The ''Great Passions of History" series has for this month's subject the romantic career of Agnes Sorel, who influenced the destinies of France under Charles VII. "The Art Schools of America," "The Great British Northwest Territory," "The Chiefs of the American Press," and the "Public Library Movement," are amongst The Cosmopolitan's table of contents, Survivors of the war and their children will find in tense interest in "The Story of a Thousand," a personal narrative begun in this number by Albion "\V. Tourgee, who tells in a graphic, way, of a regiment which saw fierce service—of its organization, its marches, its sports, and its death-roll.

J. O'Rourke, a clerk in the comptroller's office during the Tweed regime, has laid before the citizens' committee a document and papers purporting to show that twen-^ ty-five years ago $15,000,000 worth of city bonds were duplicated, and the fact has been sytematically covered up in the comptroller's office ever since. Members of the committee to whom the revelations were made have filed a- petition for a. summary investigation of the charges. The petition is directed against Richard A. Storrs, deputy comptroller,because he has been in the comptroller's office ever since the time that the alleged duplication took; place. NEW YORK, Pec. 8.— Judge Patterson, 1 in the supreme court, refused an application for leave to investigate the affairs of the comptroller's office. The main grounds for refusal are that the committee's knowledge is based entirely on information and belief, and it is against the code. The application was based on the reported fraudulent issue of city bonds, which is alleged to ag— s gregate as much as $100,000,000.
