She left ; t hMne ahffie to go to Joseph Gihter's '- farm, two mftes away, and thence, with the yblifagef members'of the .(JiaijW^ftBiily, to a s dancing party at Petef Huff's house,' two miles beyond. - She did not appear, and search was ttadeforhef, Her body was found lyitog in a meadow ,with the market bftsket sh% carried, its contents undisturbed, resting five feet away. Her face was badly mutilated and a report that she had been : gored by a bull reached town, but it soon transpired that this was impossible, as the meadotv contained only yearlings and no footprints of cattle appeared near by, On the contrary, there was present .the evidence that the girl had had a terrible struggle with the murderer. The grass for ten feet in one' direction • was beaten down. Hdr 'skull was fractured in several places and the edges of a bloody stone found by her side fitted into the wounds on her forehead and scalp. Lying by her were the broken pieces of the limb of a tree which had been xised as a •weapon. These pieces bore blood and the hairs of a man and woman, leading the coroner's jury to the theory that Minnie, a powerful girl, had struck the murderer over the head with this Weapon and that he had snatched it away from her and broke it over her head. The coroner's jury returned a verdict of murder by some person unknown. PUBUQUE, July 9.—Two young men, Chris Eckertebe and Kilborg, son of the man who owns the pasture where the dead body of Minnie Keil was found, were arrested on the charge of murdering the girl. It is proved that Eckertebe was not in Bellevue, as he claims he was, at the time of the murder. It is said the evidence against them is strong. DUBUQUE, July 11.—The examination of Christian Eckerlebe, charged with the murder of Minnie Keil, was continued in Justice Campbell's court. By request of Eckerlebe's attorney, the examination was continued to July 16. Defendant Was refused bail and he was conveyed to the Jackson county jail at Andrew. Spots on his coat sleeve and shirt, supposed to be blood, will be examined by Dubuque chemists. Nobody had; been found who saw Eckerlebe on the fatal day from Ga. m. till after 4 p. m., two hours' before the murder. Eckerlebe was one of the party which started put to search for .the'missing"girl, and he piloted the party to the place where she found. Ift ft .

They- came to blows, &,nd during the fight that followed Wheeled knocked Walden down and threw hiin out of the barn, Where the men were working. Shortly after, Walden returned to renew the attack", this time carrying. an open knife. He made two vicious lunges at Wheeler, both times cutting through the clothing and just grazing the flesh over the heart. Wheeler; being unarmed, ran for the house, followed by the now furious Walden, who kept lunging at his victim. He succeeded in cutting a gash about eight inches long, just below the shoulder blade, which fortunately did not enter very deeply into'the flesh. When Wheeler succeeded in getting out of reach of the knife, Walden picked up a rock and struck the fleeing man a terrific blow in the right temple, cutting a terrible gash and it was feared fractured the skull. Wheeler bled profusely, but by the use of cobwebs was enabled to check the flow of blood until a doctor could .be summoned, who sewed up the wounds. Walden gave himself up to the authorities. CUBA. TWENTY SEVEN DEAD. Awful Near was MINNIE MURRAY OF NASHUA. Railroad Wreck Occurs Council HluiTs. Logan, July 13.—A terrible head-end collision occurred here on the Chicago & Northwestern. The Union Pacific Pioneer excursion train, on which were 1,200 persons who had been picnicking near Logan, had just pulled out to return to Omaha, when No. c58, fast freight, came around a sharp curve and before either train could stop, they crashed together. Twenty-seven people were killed outright and forty more were seriously injured. The Avreek occurred as a result of Engineer Montgomery, of the excursion train, mistaking orders. He was ordered to wait at Logan until a fast freight .and the east bound passenger train had passed. He waited for the passenger train «and then started out, having forgotten about tne freight. The trains were going fifty miles an hour when they met three miles west of Logan. Engineer Montgomery jumped and escaped with a broken arm. LdM>ON, July S.— ThS bfoad statesmanship ftfad Sagacity bf General Martinez Campos Were neve? more forcibly illustrated thftb in hi* speech in the Spanish senate defending his policy Sn Cuba and appealing for peace, If his advice Were followed, there Would be a quick end of disorders in the island and of friction* with the United States, CampoS spoke with caution, yet with, boldfless. He 'did not'directly attack the policy of the Canovas cabinet. But he did say that during the period of his recent captain generalship he had repeatedly urged the government to carry out home rule reforms, "tf I did not carry them out myself, 1 ' he declared, "it Was because the government never instructed me to do so." The pero- atioh of the speech was a lofty and pathetic appeal to the cabinet and the nation to make whatever concessions were necessary to bring about peace, "Let us end a war," he exclaimed, in tones of warning and indignation, "which costs 20,000 lives and 8100,000,000 annually." It was the speech of a patriot andiof Spain's most far-seeing statesman, as well as ablest and most humane soldier. But it did not fall with a pleasant-sound upon the ears of ministerialists or military politicians of any school. They were better satisfied with the energetic retort of Canovas, who reiterated, amid the applause of the chamber and the galleries, that, while a complete scheme of reforms was ready, not a single concession would be made until the insurrection had been quelled. "We have no peace offering for rebels," was the text of the premier, and the extraordinary credits for the Cuban war were voted without further debate. In the lobby, afterward, Campos stated that to end the war, as the cabinet proposed, would require the military occupation of the island. This, in his opinion, would mean 400,000 men in the next five years and $1,000,000,000. HAVANA, July 11.—Merchants of Pinar del Rio, arrived here, say that Antonio Maceo, the famous insurgent leader, died of wounds received in: the last engagement with the Spanish troops.

C., Jflly detaiU of the Japanese wave of last inottth hate been received by the steamer Bfaeiner from Ifokohama. The advices are to June S3, and show that the disaster was probably the mfist fearful of modern times. The death list has been greatly augmented since last advices and will probably go far beyond fifty thousand, bistfess among the survivors of the terrible Visitation is appalling. Thousand/ of injured are dying from lack"of medical assistance and many are upon the verge of starvation. The wave originated not far from the Japanese coast and appears to have visited an extent of over 300 miles oi. the coastline. Even in Hokaido it wrought destruction. The most southerly limit of its ravages appears to have been just a little north of the famous archipelago of Matsushima. -Had the wave impinged upon the coast south of Kink- asas, it would have worked ruin among the towns and villages of this region, but it missed the promontory and be* gan iti devastation with the villages of UflngaWa and •' Okachiyy situated across the neck bf the "'"'peninsula. Fourteen thousand, seven hundred and ninety people were killed in Miyas Gi prefecture and in the Iwate prefecture 22,180 perished, and 1,344 were injured, making a total forthe two prefectures of 37,150 killed and 1,344 injured. A dispatch from Morika says that over 60,000 people were either killed or injured by the wave. In Keseu, in the district of Iwate, one town and eleven villages were destroyed and 0,000 people perished. In Minarni Hei district three towns and eight villages were overwhelmed, 5,627 persons being drowned and 332 injured. A full investigation will probably double these figures. A CRISIS IN ITALY.

The great turn-out Wag a tribute to the enthusiasm and zeal of thd visitors, tired as many of them were by long railway journeys. The topic at these suhrise services was "Prayer for the Convention," and in each case the meetings were led by members of the visiting organizations, These special services lasted from 6:30 to 7:16 o'clock. The great meetings in the big tents were originally fixed for half past 9 o'clock, but there was some unavoidable delay, owing to the damage done by Wednesday night's storm. tent Willlston was abandoned entirely, for the day, at least, and the Bndeavorers who had (intended to be present there were admitted "to the remaining tents, Washington and Endeavor. They were calculated to accommodate 10,000 people each, but were crowded even before the services began. In Tent Washington President Francis E. Clark of Boston, Mass., presided and Percy S. Foster of Washington, acted as director of the vast chorus of CHALLENGED TO A DUEL. TO TEST THE CIGARETTE LAW. Iowa Girl Carries a Boles Banner Through the Convention Hall. CHICAGO, July 10.—A girl in white, waving "Old Glory" in the southern gallery at the conclusion of the Boies nominating speeches last night, earned an ovation, in which even the delegates participated. A man with a Boies banner stood in the aisle beside her. Acting under the inspiration of the moment, she sprang to his side and, seizing the banner, inarched down the aisle into the delegates' "pit amid the wildest enthusiasm. Police interference was resented by enthusiastic lowans and other delegates who admired her pluck and sincere • advocacy of the Waterloo candidate. It was fully fifteen minutes before order was restored. The girl was Miss Minnie Murray, a 10-year-old brunette, who hails from Nashua, Iowa, and who is the editor of the Reporter of that place. She was the heroine of the Jiour. MISSING BOY FOUND. Missouri Authorities May Bo Sued For Holding the Boy. ALMA, July 10.—C. C.

HAVANA, July 9.— Bradley Johnson, a newspaper correspondent here, has been challanged to fight a duel by a retired Spanish military officer who was offended by remarks in General Johnson's pxiblished correspondence about the Spanish army. The challenger finds himself in a somewhat rediculous .position as the officers in .active.service refuse to recognize him as their champion. General Johnson, who. is an ex- officer of the confederate" army, has seen much of war, and is in no wise troubled over the vaporings of the self- constructed champion of the honor of Spanish officers. Ho says if his statements are such as to render necessary a meeting on the field of honor he is perfectly willing to fight when the proper person to meet him is decided upon. News is received that unknown parties have burned the Santa Barbara estate near Baro, province of Matan zas. The estate is owned by Sen or Manuel Coronado, editor of La Discussion. The damage is estimated 5300,000. . Cabinet Resigns on Defeat of the Armj 1)111. ROME, July 12.—-The cabinet, which was formed by the Marquis di Rudini, just four months ago, has resigned.

CHANG IS COMING. on His Way Will Probably Cross Iowa Home. LONDON, July 8.—Li Hung Chang, the ''Bismarck of China," will go to the United States in September, to present in person to the president a letter from the emperor of China. He is now in Berlin, but will leave there in a few days for Paris, coining to London the latter part of the month. He had expected to go to Washington the latter part of August, but has'postponed the date of his depature irom Europe until President Cleveland's return to Washington from Buzzard's Bay. Some concern is expressed at. the American i embassy as to the plans that Americans will adopt to entertain the distinguished Mongolian, especially as congress makes no provision for such purposes. It is presumed that- the state governors and private citizens- A will assist. Li Hung Chang's route across the continent will probably take him through Chicago, a city he is particularly anxious to see. His reception at Berlin has surpassed, from a spectacular point of view, all ceremonies, of like character. It remains to be seen whether France and England will beat Gejimany : .at,.thi$.game.
