For •Murder.'of Stephen Hownrrt Near Waterloo. WATKBLOO, March 18.—Chas. Adams Is on trial here 'for the murder of Stephen Howard in Lester township, this county, November 11 last. The murdered man was 70 years old and Adams is about 40. They quarreled over some stock, belonging to .Adams which got into Howard's fields. Howard went to Adams' barnyard and after a few words about the stock,. Adams struck Howard over the head with a club, breaking -his skull and causing his death. Adams admitted j this, and claimed to 'be acting in self-defense. The prosecution" put the physician on the .stand who was called before Howard died, and he testified that there were punctured wounds in Howard's face which he probed and which, in his opinion, must have jbeen made with a pitchfork. This indicates that there may have. been Others . engaged in the murder. The case is attracting much attention in this section. ' ".':-' BIG WORKMAN FIGHT. The Kentucky Lodge Comes In to Help the Loyal Grand.; DUBUQUK, March 15.—The supreme lodge, Ancient r Order of United "Workmen, a Kentucky corporation, has filed. a bill in the federal court to restrain the Ancient Order of United .Workmen of Iowa, the rebel organization, from using the name in Iowa. The bill, alleges th.e plaintiff is the original organization and that defendant has usurped the name. This is in retaliation for the injunction proceeding the seceding grand lodge is now prosecuting against the Loyal Grand lodge in Iowa, in which the rebel grand lodge has thus far been successful, Judge Husted, of the Dubuque district court, having sustained a demurrer to an answer in which the loyalists contended that body was the legal one and that it was a fraternal society, not -an- insurance organization.

Reports have been received of- the murder of Henry Burghmaster, a young German at St. Ansgar. As nearly as can be now ascertained, the facts are as follows: L. Sherman, who works in John Vacha's harness '• shop, went into the shop as usual, where he • found the owner sound asleep in the back room. On removing a blanket which had been pinned up at a front window, the light revealed the distorted and partially burned body of Burghmaster. Near at hand was found a hammer covered with hair and blood. The supposition is that he was murdered by some unknown persons during a drunken spree, and an attempt was made to conceal t;he crime by endeavoring 'to burn tb.e building, There are new developments in the Blosser forgery and ' suicide case which occurred a few days ago at Cromwell, New papev is turning up every hour. Tho extent of the forg» cries is still unknown. There appears to be a theory among certain Cromwell people that Blosser had an accomplice to do the forging, as it js said he was not a smooth enough penman ^o do the work, Another theory is that Jie was a victim of blackmail and that there was a woman in the oa-so.

MADIIID, March 18. — Replying to questions propounded in tho deputies, Groiseard, minister of state, said the report that Minister Taylor, acting on behalf of the United States, had claimed that reparation from Spain was due the United States on account of the Allianca incident, was true. The United States government, he said, at the same time demanded that American trade with Cuba should not be interfered with. The United States government, he explained, considered the firing on the Allianca to be a violation of the principles of international law. Minister Groiseard, in conclusion, said Spain had ordered the fullest. investigation of .the affair to be made. The government, he added, was willing to agree to any settlement, provided the principles cf international law were not infringed upon and no attempt was made to prejudice tho dignity of the nation. INDIANA LEGISLATURE. ft f§ WAS. A The T.OKlfilature Breaks Up In a Itltter Blot. INDIANAPOLIS, March 13.—A riot took place in the house just previous to adjournment yesterday. The trouble originated over a bill to supplant Custodian Griffin, democrat, with are- publican. The governor has three clays in which to veto all measures. The bill was delivered to the governor two nights previous. It was his idea to hold it until the last minute, and then the legislature could not pass it over his veto, as adjournment would take place at 13 o'clock. The riot occurred when his private secretary attempted to reach the speaker witn the veto. Several persons were injured, one probably fatally. The secretary finally succeeded in reaching tne speaker, but just then he declared the house acljourne.d, and some one grabbed the veto and disappeared. INDIANAPOLIS, March 14.—As a result of the legislative riot, Myron D. King, the governor's private secretary, is in a serious condition, lying 'under the influence of opiates, His injuries are internal, and his friends are much alarmed about him. EASTERN WAR.

Blood hounds were used and four men were captured who acknowledged the crime, but each said the other was the leader. Their guilt was proven. As the prisoners were being taken to jail a mob arrived and riddled their bodies with bullets. A hundred Italians became frenzied and a riot resulted in which a white man was killed. Next morning a mob, of white men broke into the jail and shot to death two more Italians who were implicated in the murder of Hixon. It is said. some of the Italians are not American citizens and the Italian, consul is investigating. The American . mail steamer Alliance, arrived at New York from Colon, reports that on the 8th inst.. off the eastern edge of Cuba a Spanish man-of-war headed directly toward her. The vessels'exchanged salutes at a distance of two and one-half miles. The Spaniard fired a, blank cartridge, followed by another. As the Alliance was on the open sea, no attention was paid to it, and the Spaniard gave chase, firing three solid shots at the American' vessel, chasing her twenty-five miles.' The latter crowded on steam and ran away from the Spaniard, Captain Grossman, of the Alliance, reported the matter to the secretary of state, and no doubt a prompt demand will be made on the Spanish government for an explanation.

J., March !», 1895.-(S|)e- tlal.)—Since one of our prominent citi- teens suffered so terribly from tobacco tremens, has made known his frightful experience in behalf of humanity, the ladies here are making tobacco-using husbands' lives miserable with their entreaties to at once 4uit tobacco. The written statement of S. J. Gould is attracting Wide-spread attention When interviewed to-night he said: "I commenced Using tobadco at thirteen; I am now forty-nine: so, for thirty-six years I chewed, smoked, sHUffed and rubbed snuff. In the morning 1 chewed before I put my pants oh, and for a long time I used two ounces of chewing and eight ounces of smoking a day. Sometimes I had a chew in both cheeks and a pipe In my mouth at once. Ten years ago I quit drinking whisky. I tried to stop tobacco time and again, but could not. My nerves craved nicotine and I fed them till my skin turned a tobacco brown, cold, sticky perspiration oozed from my skin, and trickled down my back at the least exertion or excitement. My nerve vigor and my life were being slowly sapped. I made up my mind that I had to quit tobacco or die. On October 1 I stopped, and for three days I Buffered the tortures of the damned. On the third day I got so bad that my partner accused me of being drunk. I said, 'No have quit tobacco.' 'For God's sake, man,' he said, offering me his tobacco box, 'take a chew; you .will go wild,' and .1 was wild. Tobacco was forced into me and i was taken home dazed: I saw double and my memory was beyond control, but still knew how to chew and smoke, which I did all day until towards night, when my system got tobacco>soaked again." The next morning I looked and felt as though I had been through a long spell of sickness. I gave up in despair, as I thought that I could not cure myself. Now-, for suffering humanity, I'll tell what saved my life. Providence evidently answered my good wife's prayers and brought to her attention in our paper an article which read: 'Don't Tobacco Spit and Smoke Your Life Away!"• "What a sermon and warning In these words! Just what I was doing. It told about a guaranteed cure for the tobacco habit, called No-To-Bac. I sent to Druggist Hasler for a box. Without a grain of faith I spit out my tobacctf cud, and put into my mouth a little tablet upon which was stamped No-To-Bac. I know it sounds like a lie when I tell you that! I took eight tablets the first day, seven the next, five the third day, and all the nerve-creeping feeling, restlessness and mental depression was gone. It was too good to be true. It seemed like a dream. That was a month ago. I used one box. It cost me $1, and it is worth a thousand. I gained ten pounds in weight and lost all desire for tobacco from the first day. I :sleep and eat well, and I have been benefited in more ways than ;I can tell. No, the cure was no exception in my case. I know of ten people right here in Caldwell who have bought?No-To- Bac from Hasler, and they have been cured. Now that I realize what No-To- Bac has done for me and others, I know why it is that the makers of this wonderful remedy, the Sterling Remedy Company, of New York and Chicago, say: 'We don't claim to cure every case. That's Fraud's talk, a lie; but we do guarantee three boxes to cure the tobacco habit, and in case of failure we are perfectly willing to refund money.' I would not give a public indorsement If I were not certain of its reliability. I know it is backed by men worth a million. - No-To-Bac has been a God-send to me, and I firmly believe it will cure any case of tobacco-using if faithfully iried, and there' are thousands of tobacco slaves who ought to know how easy it is to get free. There's happiness in No-To-Bac for the prematurely old men, who think as I did that they are old and worn out, when tobacco is the thing that destroys their vitality and manhood." The public should be warned, however, against the purchase of any of the many imitations op the market, as the success of No-To-Bac has brought forth a host of counterfeiters and ; imitators. The genuine No-To-Bac is sold under a guarantee to cure, by all druggists, and every tablet has the word No-To- Bac plainly stamped thereon',, and you run.no physical.or financial riskiin purchasing the genuine article. > , WAs'nilwfoir, Mafch 14.-- As She re* suit di the negotiatidtis between Minis* tef fiun in Japan and Minister Denby in ChiHft, the terms of peftce about to be concluded between China &nd Jap'ati are noW kriowri with littls short of exactness. As uhderstood in high of* ficial circular they are: First— The treaty between Japatt and China has ceased to exist by reason of war, but on the renewal of peace the new treaty will grant Japan extra territorial jurisdiction over China, bnt th6 lattet country Will surrender the extra territorial jurisdiction she f or- tflerly held in Japan. Second — There svill be no extension. of Japanese territory on the mainland. of Asia, but the island of Formosa, a Chinese possession lying off the coast t will be permanently ceded to Japan. Third — The Japanese will by treaty be granted the right to continue the occupation of Port Arthur and Wei- Hai- Wei, the two great naval stations. leading to the Gulf of Pechili, for a term of years. Fourth — The claim that Korea Is a dependency of hers shall be forever re- linquished'and Korea shall henceforth be independent. Fifth— A Cash indemnity will be pnid by China not to exceed, $250,000,0(10 in gold. The purpose not to extend the Japanese territory to the mainland, but confine it to the outlying island ' of Formosa, assures the conclusion of peace without European intervention. In. conformity with the new treaty Japan now terminates China's consular courts in Japan, although Japan's con sului- courts in China are to be continued. This presents the singular ' spectacle of China conceding the advance of Japan into modern methods, while at the same time conceding that she is still in a benighted condition, requiring extra territorial jurisdiction to protect foreigners in China. j Probably the most important concession is Japan'.s occupation of Port Arthur and Wei- Hai-Wei for a term of years. This will assure., the .continuance of peac'e for many years. ''.-.• ? : . IOWA PATENT OFFICE REPORT, A HURRICANE Sweeps Over -the Fcjee Islands, Point Verr Great Duniajre. 1 B.
