Crcston Bank and Citizen* Victimized to the Extent of S26.000, CBKSTOS, March 11.— The town of Cromwell, six 'miles west of Creston, is much disturbed over .JfKe ' suicide 9f David .Blosseiy an influential citizen. ' The.Crestanl National Kank found that it had collateral on Blosser that was * forged and the investigation revealed that the peculations of Blosser extended over a period of three years. It is Variously estimated that Blosser> forgeries'tWill reach»" possibly $10,000. Besides'this he has borrowed large sums from wealthy citizens on his own notes. This amount will probably reach $15.000. The 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 owned by Blosser to arrest him he endeavored to evade the officers, and failing, drew a revolver and shot himself in the right temple. It was learned that within a . week he attempted suic'.de by taking- strychnine. What he has done with the money is a mystery. A BATTLE AT BOONE. Anteti, March S.-YSsterday Morning at OiiO two m«fl stepped intd the Adet bank and told Cashier S. M. Leach that they wanied to make & deposit. Mr. Leach prepared to feceive it, when bdth mefi presented revolvers and told him to pass ove* a sack af money lying near. Mr. Leach declined and quickly threw the sack into the vault, which he had closed aad locked befdfb the robbers could reach him* but ilot befofe he had been seriously and possibly fatally wounded by the des> peradoea. The men than, seeing- that theii? plans had miscarried, grabbed a sack of silver currency amounting to about $260, ran to the north side of the square, where their team was stand- 'ing, 'an l dMfbfe*rapidlysfrom town. Utt route from the bank to the team three persons were wounded by bullets from their shot guns. C. I). Bailey, a merchant, received a wound in the fleshy part of the neck and part of the shoulder was torn away. .T. M. Byers, abstractor, was shot in the arm. Cecil Decker, a boy, was ahot in the hand, arm and head. The posse which started in pursuit overtook the robbers «t O'Neal's Ford, five miles south of Adcl. The desperadoes left their rig, and one hid in a brush heap while another ran into a barn. Kerosene was poured on the barn, and the man who had taken refuge in ' the brush heap was compelled to apply the torch to the structure. The robber stayed in the barn until It was all ablaze, and then ran put to >be confronted by a dozen rifles and shot-guns. Even then he refused to "surrender, and 'a half dozen shots were sent after him before he came down, mortally wounded, dying in a few minutes. The other robber was brought to Adcl and placed in" jail. He gives his name us C. W: Crawford, and that of his partner as Lander Wilkins, and says they lived at Patterson. They drove from that place Tuesday, and stopped over night at n, farmer's near town, then drove to town and tackled the job which resulted so disastrously. HAWAIIAN Will Me feulit *«dcptfidfcnt d WAStttJmtofl, March 11.— When congress failed to provide for building an Hawaiian cable it by no means ended the question. Oft the contrary, it brought forward a p¥ oject of international importance by which Kussia, Prattee, Japan and ttkwaii wiH join in an American enterprise for laying a cable from the United States to ttawaii and theft to .Japan, with branch cables to the French islands and extensive naval stations in the Southern Pacific. The negotiations with .these governments hate proceeded quickly but With such satisfactory results that they are Well along toward completion. The British project of "a cable starting^* rom Vancouver appears to be ended with the failure of the senate to so modify our treaty with Hawaii as to let a Bi'it- ish cable land on Neckar island. 6HI6 AUClBENt.

March 7.—The Japanese captured the city of New Chwang after a desperate fight with the Chinese defenders. The loss on either side is not given. TIEN Tsuf, March 8.—The emperor of China has completely vindicated Li Hung Chang. His majesty confesses that after trying others he found Li Hung- Chang alone trustworthy. Therefore ho grants Li the fullest power to treat with Japan for peace. The central government publicly assumes the entire responsibility for the condition of national defense, which is there- suit of the blindness of Chinese to progress of the other nation. This action places all future reform in the hands of Li Huns Chang. ARMENIAN OUTRAGES. [Noted Drunken Tramps Shot Down Ijy the I'o- llcemen of the City. BOONK, March 10. —A drunken, mob of tramps attempted to run things in the Chicago and Northwestern railroad yards here at 3 o'clock a. in. Officers Anderson, Cartwright and Campbell •were sent to. the scene and attempted to handcuff the men and bring them to the jail. A desperate fight resulted, during which Officer Campbell shot two of the tramps, killing one instantly. The others will probably recover. There were about twenty-five of the tramps, and the people commend Campbell's action, Had he not fired, it is likely some of the police would have been killed. . TRAVELING MAN IN TROUBLE. of Charged With the Misappropriation f Funds. ' CEDAB RAPIDS, March 0.—Edward Lovejoy, commercial traveler for Cook & Friuk, wholesale grocers, is reported to be $3,000 short in his accounts. The firm admits a shortage, but withholds particulars, 'Lovejoy denies, having misapplied the firm's money, and in- dftjates as" an explanation of his dis- cfH&jancy a failure to take into consideration the discounts on collections. Lovejoy is one of the best known traveling men in Central Iowa, The firm has dispensed with his services. MUSTERED OUT. . of a National Guard. Quarrel ut Identified at Chicago us Cracksman. COUNCIL BMJFFS, March S.—J. B. White, alias Wilson, the wounded Griswold bank robber, has been positively identified as Toney Butler, a noted cracksman of Pittsburg. The identification was made by Inspector Sheu, of Chicago, whose men were sent to Council Bluffs to look into ^hc case. AVilson is.the man who was shot, and, despite the fact that lie was badly wounded, he was stripped very close and a careful examination was made. He was also photographed. The photographs and description, were sent to Chicago to be compared with Butler's record there. The inspector wired the sheriff that the identification was absolute and complete, anil that the man had been working in west for the last year. He has headed a gang that did some daring work in Montana. CONDKNSKD ITEMS. Indications Point to Further AtroulUen. LONDOX, March -7.—An Armenian correspondent declares the Turkish case before the Armenian outrages commission has already completely broken down. The only question now is who was responsible for the massacre' 1 Mohammedou fanaticism is aroused, and there arc threats in many places of 11 massacre of Christians as soon as the commission leaves. Many inoffensive Armenians are beaten and killed. In Tshiflik the Turks organized a mock representation of Christ riding on an ass. The correspondent declares he knows of nearly fifty girls of Sassotm abducted and distributed among the Turkish soldiers and ofT- cers. Charles A. t)aua, editor of the Jtfew York Sun, has been indicted by the grand jury of,the ftistrict of Columbia for criminal'libel against Frank B. Noyes, of the Washington Star, whom he attacked as an Associated Press director. Sacrainefltp,dispatch: A break for liberty was'made at the Folsom'prison shortly after noon that ended in three convicts being shot, one of whom will die. While one guard was looking after twelve men who Were at work across the river, three started away. The command was given to halt, .but as the men paid no attention to it the guard began tiring, every shot taking effect, but the men kept on. Firing alarmed the prison and a number of extra men were sent to the assistance of the guard, and within a few mimites the convicts were captured. The injured were found to bet Garcia, a Mexican, shot through the arm and both thighs broken; Turner, a negro, mortally wounded, and Anderson, a mulatto, shot through the fleshy part of the legs. At Valley Field, Quebec, recently, John Loy, a clerk, and Maxim Lcbouf, watchman for the Montreal Cotton company, were shot and ' killed, and Hugh Wilson, a clerk, probably fatally wounded by C. R. Shertis, formerly private secretary to the managev of the company, recently discharged.

He was ordered to leave, and. becoming enraged, grabbed a loaded revolver from the paymaster's desk and Of PAtENfSi ttafrj tfaJWlrd *rort6uncad the Mttfdertr 6l Sill* Glnfr. MifcfcEAPOLts, Minn., March n.— Attbrney fcrWin concluded his address in the Hayward-Gihg ease yesterday tnofnihg. Judge Smith's charge to the jury followed. Through the long lines of legal phraseology he read the definition of what constitutes a charge of mttrder in the first degree until he had reached the summary of his Opinions concerning the evidence. The effort of the defense to establish the theory that Miss Glaf had been killed by blows rather than by a pistol shot* th« court took to be simply an effort to discredit the testimony of Blixt, and as to the value of that effort it was for the jury to decide. The first thing which they would be called upon to consider when they entered their room, the court stated, was the evidence that'BHxt was-the man who directly committed the murder of Miss Ging. 'if they could not agree upon this primary point, said the court, they need not consider the case further, but return a verdict of not guilty. But if they agreed upon this point, that Blixt did commit the murder, then they were to pass on to the second question, did Harry Hayward instigate, induce and secure Blixt to commit the crime? If they found that he did, then they were to bring in a verdict of guilty as charged. His honor gave the usual explanation of what constituted a reasonable doubt and set forth clearly and impartially the various alternatives to which belief-or discrediting of the testimony would entitle them, and not until lie came to the question of motive was the monotony of the charge. broken. "If," said he, "you find from the evidence that the prisoner had sufficient motive that would induce him to commit the crime, 'you are to take that into serious consideration in Connection with the other testimony. It will be one of the important factors in the decision of your verdict."' At 10:50 the jury .retired, and at 2:30 p. m., a verdict of guilty was returned. ttnptittanl D>fl*lo« Bfr thd Bnpretnfi tWtfi WJSHiSGTOSr, March O.—The case of the Bate ttefrigerator company against Francis Sulzbefger & Co., upon which the question whether Americail p&tente expire whfeh foreign patents have bcefc ^ previously issued, was decided by the supreme coUft to-day. It is eStrmaieft that fully $600,000,000 of capital invested in many valuable patents hi«- ges on the decision. The court held that the invention for which Bate received the patent was previously patented in a foreign country, attd Hurt, thfc Waited States patent did feXplfe with the foreign patents. The decision is against the electric and othef patents involved in the decision of thtfc suit. Among the patents affected are, three issued>to the Western Union T*W egraph company, on app ications fllftclf by Thomas A. Edison, w.hich after-i ward -became the property of the^ . American Bell* Telep1«*&fe"' 1 bottipan'y. t " J Thelse patents are claimed to be fundamental, and with the Berliner, paten* now in litigation, expire at the date ofi this expiration of the foreign patent.' They are free in the foreign countries, and under the present decision are made free in this country. The decision will also affect in the same way the quadriiplcx telegraph patents filed' by the General Electric Light company. There was no dissenting opinion. A'MERICAN EXPORTS. CUBAN REBELLION.

An order from the department ordering all postal clerks to have their photographs in their railway pass books, went into effect recently. In former years passes were issued by each road annually to each clerk who resided on that line in the form of a card. Recently the department, in conjunction w.ith the different roads, decided to furnish each clerk with a pass in the form of a book. This book will bo furnished by the postofflcc department annually, signed by James B. White, general superintendent of the railway mail service, and approved by the postmaster general, otherwise they will be invalid. The clerk to whom this is issued is required to have his photograph attached before it is given him by his chief clerk.

QUR FINANCES, DES MOINKS, Mar. 4, 1805.—The commissioner has recently hurried tho < work of examiners so .that in all,of the thirty-three divisions none are in arrears more than one month. Numbers heretofore were in arrears from threo to six months. The total number of applications awaiting- action in February was 4,718. 'To prevent delays i». the prosecution of claims, Sec. 4804 of the revised statutes, which allows applicants to prosecute "within two years after any action therein," new rules have been issued, apparently lit disregard of said section, limiting'thftj time for amending- and appealing tlf six months. After demonstrating thai; examinations in all of the divisions could be hurried officially without de j priving applicants of their right to amend or appeal within two years froiu official action, as contemplated by the law, it seems doubtful whether saifi rules can be enforced without legislation.^ Evidently, however, the corn- .missioner's actions in the matter ar« designed to promote the public good by preventing questionable practices under the law, and the new rules should become law. Howald ami Robinson, of Des Moines, have been allowed a patent for their trade mark, the word symbol "globe" as applied to : | 'stock food."
