IA. 300,OOO,000-liushnl Crop of Oats Predicted This Year In Iowa. DES MOINES, August 2.— The talk among' Des Molnes grain men now is oa having a 300,000,000 bushel crop of oats in this state this year. The Opinion seems to prevail that the crop ' is bound to amount to that much. "I •Will bet a $1<QG, 1 ' said a prominent grain man, 4 -*that the crop of oats will amount to 300,000,000 bushels this year. 'feome of the reports we -are receiving are something wonderful. A report .from Harrison county states one man raised 120 bushels to the, acre and it .was Missouri river bottom land besides. In Calhoun county one man is credited with having 112 bushels to the acre on ten acres. And there are reports of other large yields, although, of course, not so large as the ones 1 have mentioned. 1 think it is safe to say the average yield per acre the state over '•will be seventy bushels. This 1 has never been equaled before, but there 'Is no doubt the state is raising the largest crop of oats in its history. I , have just been up along the Isurling- ton & Northern railroad and I never saw such oat fields in my life." It -is the custom for grain men to gather and make guesses on the total yield now, and'all' agree that the crop is simply enormous.

August 3.—Governor •Jackson has returned from St. Louis, where he and Attorney General Remley "had been in conference with . Governor Stone, of Missouri, in regard to the disputed Iowa-Missouri boundary line. , As a result of this conference the state of Missouri will bring an action against the state of Iowa in the United States supreme court and ask that the court appoint a commission to look up the pld survey and establish the boundary permanently. It is understood between the officials of the two states that Iowa will aid in the work, and that both states shall abide by the decision of the 'commission. After the commission . reports, which will probably be 'about o - 'December 1st', congress will be asked '•^.'jratify the action of the commission. ^'• It is quite certain that the-disputed ' -.boundary line bet ween Decatur county, '- in.

A dispatch from Mexico says Rowe, defaulting treasurer of Poweshiek county, cannot be extradited, but will be imprisoned there without, any further information. Miss Grace Gale, of Davenport, and Mrs. Patrick Burke, of Clinton, 1 attempted to commit suicide at Clinton. The former took poison and the latter jumped into the river. The former was pumped out and the latter fished out. Both will live. There is no reason known for their rash acts. 3 Chester Tijrney is, once more a much wanted man, the police of the city of of Clinton being of the opinion that it was he who fired the barn of William Reed a few nights since. They have evolved a strong chain of evidence against him from these facts: J. E. Reed, who lives but a few doors from Wm. Reed, and whose barn is just across the alley from the other Reed's, was- one of the leading business men of Preston at the • time Turney was systematically plundering the town, and Reed was one of the men who hunted 'down the criminal. After his capture, Turney swore he would get even with his captors, if it took fifty years. Turney when seen in Clinton was loitering about in the vicinity of the residences of the two Reeds. It is believed the near proxitaity of the two barns mixed him up, and with the intention of firing J. E. Reed's applied the match to Wra. Reed's, has not been seen in Clinton since day before the fire occurred.

The expedition started froitt Two Keyesj ih the Bahama islands, and was taken Jtt sail boats to several sailing crafts which conveyed the whole party, Ammunition and arms were in some crafts, and the men in others, thus avoiding any danger from capture. The expedition of Rotoff and Sanchez consisted of 2t8 men, almost all veterans of the last war. They carried about 500 Winchesters and Remington rifles, besides a number of machettes and revolvers. One boat carried more than 600 pounds of dynamite, two small cannons and 500,000 rounds of ammunition. The second expedition under Rodriguez consisted of seventy-five picket men, all veterans' and mostly officers. They carried about 150 repeating rifles, the same number of machettes and revolvers, and 200,000 rounds of ammunition. The two expeditions landed on the southern coast of the province of Santa Clara." TAMPA. Fla., August 2.—The long delayed RolofE expedition, which left Key West early in June, has landed safely in Cuba. Col. Figueredo says< that not only will the district of .Santa Clara at large, rise in arms, but also the province of Mantanzas next to Havana, because both Roloff and Sanchez have a large following in these provinces. Besides this, the large quantities of ; arms and ammunition taken was what the people there were waiting for. He calculated ' that in a few days they will have 0,000 men with them. The landing of this expedition is considered as serious a blow to Campos as his defeat at Valenzuela. The Cuban leaders were constantly afraid the expedition would be detected in its perilous position. The expedition remained forty days on this key awaiting a favorable moment to embark. That the expedition was excellently organized is shown from the fact that during all this time the party escaped the vigilance of the United States patrol. HAVANA, August 2.—Gen. Campos has issued a decree prohibiting papers from publishing news referring to the campaign which is not of official origin.

How much depends upon the corn crop is realized by few. Tho corn crop will bring more money, if marketed, than all other grain products combined, and potatoes may be counted with the grain to make good measure, The estimated yield of corn for this year is from 2,250,000,000 to 2,500,000,000 bushels. At the present price, which is 35 cents for December or May delivery, the crop will be worth $800,000,000. A decline of 5 cents a bushel would mean a dlf* ferenco of $115,000,000 in the value of the crop. To emphasize the immensity of this product it may be said that the State Of Iowa alone will raise enough corn this year to supply more than five bushels to every man, woman and child in the United States.

The United States troops are now in Jackson's Hole. WASHINGTON, August 4.—A dispatch from-Gen. Coppinger announces that the Indian trouble is all over. WORST ON RECORD, THE ROWE CASE. he He the Causes Sorloas Apprehension at the State Department. WASHINGTON, August 1.—Under the extradition treaty between the United States and Mexico, neither country is bound to surrender its own citizens in answer to a demand for extradition. There is reason to fear it will be a difficult matter in the future to extradite criminals fleeing from the. United States in to'Mexico', if they follow the plan adopted by Chester Rowe, the absconding treasurer of Poweshiek county, Iowa, and his brother Richard, who is charged with the crime. They went boldly to the City of Mexico under the name of Rose; and when the" extradition papers were served on them, set up the claim tha^j they were naturalized citizens oJ Mexico. This had been accomplished <by the simple process of purchasing real estate and electing to become Mexican citizens, which, according to the lax Mexican law, makes them actual Mexican citizens. So far no decision of that government has reached the United States officially and the matter has given rise to seriou! apprehension at the department, A. P. A. Law May Result in Bloodshed OMAHA, Neb., August 2.—The situation in Omaha'over -the effort - of the American Protection Association, or the A. P. A., to get control of the police force is serious. -Two police forces ai-e doing business in this city, one force drawing authority from the police commissioner and a new force under authority of a new law which was passed by the last legislature and which went into effect at midnight. A collision is eminent. i OMAHA, August 3.—Despite an injunction issued by the district court, restraining the city council from approving their bonds, the bonds of the new A. P. A. police commissioners have been approved, the council ignoring the injunction. A second injunction has been issued restraining the commissioners from interfering with the old force or any property. A citizens' volunteer guard of 100 men is on duty at the police station to maintain peace and assist the old police force in holding possession pf the city property.

Appln Shippers' Association Contradicts the Report. CHICAGO, Aug. 3.—At the annua Meeting of the National Apple Ship pers" Association, with delegates present representing all apple growing states from Maine to Colorado, it ' wa: announced that the July report of the department of agriculture, indicating a short apole crop, is entirely incorrec and misleading. Local information in their possession show that in New England the crop is one of reasonable proportions, and in New York, while light in some districts, the aggregate exceeds last year both in quantity aric quality. West, of the Alleghene.; mountains the crop is declared 'to b the largest grown in any 'recent yeai the only exception being in limitec districts in Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin and Minnesota. Those in attendanc at the meeting unite in declaring th outlook to be for the largest aggregat crop of best quality in recent years. SMALL POX IN TEXAS.

M., says the greatest flood in the history of- 1 New Mexico has just occurred. Sixteen persons are known to have lost their lives in the raging waters. The storm began with a downpour of rain and after two hours of terrific rainfall a cloudburst struck the mountain about five miles above the town and less than half an.hour aftei dark gigantic waves bringing rocks mud and debris, took their devastating course through the streets.

NEW YORK, August 3.—Fontura Xavier, the Brazilian consul general in this city, believes that the island of Trinidad, which was .recently taken possession of by the British, will be regained-by Brazil. In talking to' a reporter, he said the Brazilian government was making every effort to settle the difficulty by diplomacy, but if these means fail, he believes Brazil will, try to take the island by force of arms. •"My country's navy cannot, of- course, compare in strength with that of Great Britain," Mr. Xavier said, "but our citizens are determined to assert their rights and have no fear of England." When asked what'position he thought the United States would take in case of war, Mr, Xavier answered that it could not remain neutral without violating the Monroe doctrine,, and that, he thought, the administration would be unwilling to dp. , It is said the whole trouble is caused by a cable company which wants the island.

It tpok but one ballot to decide that the Taylor brqthers were guilty of the heinous crime charged against them, and that the penalty for the butchery of Meeks, his wife and two children, on Jenkins Jtlill, on the night of May 10, last, should be set at the limit. There was no doubt as to the spectators' approval of the verdict.

PETEnsmnto, August 2.-Strenuous efforts are being made by the Japanese foreign officers to have the execution ' of the treaty of Shimoneseki and the evacuation of Liao-Tung peninsula regarded as an interdependent question evidently with the intention of retarding as far as possible- the withdrawal of Japan's forces from the peninsula. The three intervening governments, are, on the contrary, determined that no fusion of these two questions shall be allowed, it being quite clear that" they are and always have been entirely: distinct. Japan bound herself to th> 'three powers to evacuate Liac-Tun^r. She did not enter into" this undertakiujr toward China alone. The three powers are therefore' entitled to call a fit execution ot this promise quite independently .of a subject in disputo between Japan and the celestial government. .They Hvill take active measures, for hastening the definite settlement of the question by urging the immediate withdrawal of the army of occupation" *- »•" MRS.

The letter said Mrs. Waller was suffering intense mental distress owing to. her husband's misfortunes and the hardships she and her children had to j j undergo. They did not know how they were going to reach the United States, being without money.
