RlCnLAND, October 21. — As the investigation of the failure of the bank here progresses the darker grows the trickery in the deal.

Chart ton, had access to them.

The Bulletin of the state board of health, in speak - ing of the examinations made by the .board, says: "A portion of the spleen, intestine, diaphragm and chest muscles . were sent to this office and examined very minutely for several days by Mr. Bay, bacteriologist of the board, and by Prof. Clifton Scott, of Highland Park College, and no trichina in any stage of development were found, nor any pathological conditions surely indicative of lesions produced thereby.

The Murderer of HU Son Taken to Independence. CLINTON, October 20.— -Deputy Sheriff Woldenburg took August Swansen, who chopped off the head of his little son, .with a hatchet,' in 'Clinton last spring, to Independence.

In the event of recovery of his senses, Swaneen will be brought back to Clinton and tried for his horrible butchery. V * *r ' f 1 • -ii • i' i mi i . V-. i GREASED THE RAIL.

Injunction proceedings have b'een instituted against twenty Burlington saloonkeepers. , Osage , dispatch: The verdict of the coroner's inquest shows Prof. Evans came to his death at the hands of some unknown person. Two bullet holes were found in the brain and one passed through the body at the apex of the heart. Evans graduated from Iowa college this year. The body was taken to his home at Williamsburg and buried. At Sioux City recently Ludwig Terr- mann, a larmer near that, place, repeated the time-honored experiment of blowing out the gas at the Hotel Fowler, with a slight variation of his own invention. On retiring, Terrmann, realizing that he knew little of city ways, decided to leave the gas burning rather than take any chances. The light bothered him so much, however, that he finally resolved to extinguish it,* and having heard that it must not be blown out, fanned it out with his nightcap. Fortunately the transom was open and ' the rural gentleman escaped with his life, although he is "still very ill from the effects of the experience. • A Sigourncy dispatch says: There is greet excitement here" over" the bank failure at Eiehland, tbis county. A. C, Charlton and Allen Stocker formed a partnership at Richland and have been in th^" private banking business for a number of years, On the IQth Charlton left and left a note for his partner saying that he bad, sfone to get some more money and 'asking him to run the bank until he got back. He hasn't been seen since. The liabilities are reported at $60,000 and the attachments filed amount to $30,000. Charlton, the managing partner, is still missing and is supposed to be in Mexico, , Public sentiment generally exonerates Stocker,'the other partner, The safe is not yet opened. A very peculiar and unusual case has been instituted in • the district court of Union county. The amount involved is not large, only 834.53, but the issues are of great importance to the t$x payers of Union county. The history of the case is as follows; In tbe,'month of February, 1895, a child of Andy Pnrnett, A fireman on the Burlington road, was taken sick with- Diphtheria. Dr, Sc'bifferle, ihe health *ofn"cer, quarantine^ the home pf Jiwrjiett, and, in consequence of the s^i(j quarantine, Burnptt, was compelled' to cefwip from work; His child cl;'ed ,the undertaker's and drug bill to $3,4,53, which Burnett 'to pay, claiming 'the county was responsible, owing 1 to his being pf the Bur»§tt wanted the board, of pa/ Hie- claims, wbipb anA.opw has tseednia T 6fy s>fa*fe. it says .that Mofl. JoS6Sh bhaftiberfain, sSBfelatfy of state for the colonies, has instf acted the goteftibf of British Gliiafia to obtain without delay two Maxiifl guns to be staUdfled dtt the frontier whefre the Veaezu elans may attempt to cross. This is evidence that the British government intends to hold the frontlet* within the Hchoinhtffg line by force if necessary. Ch&mberlam also •urges the cttttifig of tnilital-y rdads to the frontiel 1 to enable the govern'ttient to better repel attempts at Venezuelan aggression. He also recommends an increase in the number of military and police and the erection of barracks on the frontier. WASHINGTON, October 30. — In view of the position taken by the British government in the Venezuelan affair as outlined in the dispatches from London, leading diplomats in Washington consider it settled that Great Britain will insist that arbitration will not, under any circumstances, embrace the tract on the British Guiana side of the SchombUi'g line. NEW YoftK, October 20.— That. the Venezuelan question'is approaching an acute stage, • with possibilities of .resistance by the South American government to. British aggression, was signified by disclosures made in New York on the best authority. ' The government of Venezuela is providing itself with modern .armament, arid among obher supplies has ordered ten improved Maxim guns from the British firm which 'manufactures' them. .The order was placed through a New York firm, and the English house, it is supposed, does riot know the destina-. tion of the goods. At the same time the syndicate of United States capitalists which has secured concessions on the Venezuelan gold lands claimed by Great Britain is preparing to . send a large force of prospectors, miners and workingmen into the field. TURKEY CONSTANTINOPLE, October 18. — An irade has been promulgated announcing that the sultan has signed the Armenian reform; scheme demanded by the powers. \ LONDON, October 18. — An Odessa ,dis patch says the Black sea Russian fleet has been hastily ordered to cruise near the mouth of the Bosphorus. LONDON, October :'19.'— A dispatch to the Daily News ..from Constantinople says: "An eye-witness, of the Trebi- zond massacre says that the Armenian quarter there was completely . sacked and the mob only desisted when nothing was left to pillage or kill. TKe soldiers assisted in tho massacre with their :rifles. ! The better class of Turks gave protection and shelter in their own houses to the Armenian women and children, so • that none of these were killed in the town itself." The Chrdiiicle correspondent says: "The sultan has so much fear of exasperating the Musselmen by consenting 'to the reforms that the ministers were obliged to implore him to sign the document. It is feared that English opinion will be greatly disappointed when the terms of the reform scheme become known. But nothing better could be obtained without the appearance of the British fleet in the Dardanelles, which would have involved the instant -disruption of the triple entente between England, Russia and France, and probably a Russian occupation of Armenia " TEN STATES TO CONFER, MINNEAPOLIS, October 19.— Governor Clough has issued a formal invitation to the governors of ten states and to the mayors of the principal cities therein to sen a representatives to a convention to be held in Minneapolis November -SO, The object of the meeting is to take the first .^teps toward holding A great midcontinent exposition between Minneapolis and St. Pawl in 189,7 or J 898, The states invited are; Wisconsin, Michigan.

PRIZE FIGHT. HOT SPRINGS, October 18.—Champion J. J. Corbett was arrested on a warrant sworn out before Justice W. A. Kirk by Prosecuting Attorney C. V. Teague and asking that he be put under a peace bond, Corbett refused to give bond, and his attorneys, Greaves & Martin, decided at once to apply for a writ of habeas corpus. Should Corbett be released on a writ of habeas corpus, of which there seems to be little doubt, it is believed that there would be no fnrther.interference on the part of the governor, since the grim ting of the writ would in effect be a judicial declaration that boxing in Arkansas is not a violation ofi : the law; HOT SPRINGS, October 31.—The Corbett habeas corpus case terminated with the release of Corbett.
