CBKSTON, July 17.—A peculiar accident took place near Page Center. Glenn Steeves, a 4-year-old child, was playing on a railroad cattle guard. An approaching train came upon the child, and before the engineer could stop his engine the locomotive and one car passed over the boy. Th*e engine- men expected to pick up the ixmugled tody, but were surprised to find the child had escaped uninjured, save from a slight scratch over the eye. He had fallen partially through the cattle guard, and the cow-catcher failed to strike him, which accounts for his rather remarkable escape. SenMtiotmi iotra falls Case More SenMtlonal. IOWA FALLS, July 20.—The coroner's inquest over the body of Lelia I. Long, the daughter | of a prominent farmer living north of Iowa Falls, and whose death resulted suddenly and mysteriously Sunday, June SI, resulted in a verdict that the girl came to her death by Strychnine poisoning, administered in a single strawberry, both the poison and agent being found in an undigested state in the stomach.

BIMETALLIC LEAGUE. Meet* at DCS MoTnes and Selects Delegates to St. Louis. DEB MOIXES, July 15.—The state meeting of the non-partisan bi-metallic league of Iowa, which convened at Flynn Hall proved an agreeable surprise to the friends of the white metal in that the attendance was largely in excess of their expectations and the interest more than had been anticipated. Resolutions were adopted declaring that the money question is the dominant issue and endorsing the candidacy of Will iam J. Bryan and Arthur Sewall. Thirty-five delegates were selected to represent the state at the meeting of the national league at St. Louis. Mr. Boies Refuses to Be a Candidate for Congress DtTBCQiTE, July IS.—From a letter received from ex-Governor Boies by a friend in this city, it would appear that he will not be a candidate for congress against Colonel Henderson. The letter as published in the Herald reads as follows: "I hope no effort will be made to bring me out as a candidate for congress. I could not accept the nomination if I knew it would-result in my election, and I do not want the notoriety that will result from declining." Scott and the Girl Arrested. WATERLOO, July 20.—A telegram received by the authorities states that the Rev. G. E. Scott, pastor of the First M. E. church, has been arrested at Logansport, Ind., with Daisy Dor- Ian, the 15-year-old girl with whom he eloped from Waterloo, July 7. BREVITIES. Turkish Soldier* in Crete Itjnst Refrain Front Activity. LONDON, July 18.—In the house of commons, Mr. George;N. Curzon, under secretary for foreign affairs, announced that a complaint had been made by the Christian insurgents in Crete that the Turks in that island had further violated the armistice which had been agreed upon between the Turks and the Christian rebels, \>y making an attack upon the town of Apokorona, where many persons, including women and children, are reported to have been killed. Mr. Curzon said the powers had made a protest to the porte, insisting that the Turkish troops in the island of Crete should remain purely on the defensive, according to the agreement entered into when the armistice was established. ., Jttl£l8.—fhe strike situation at thg Browa HoisliiSg'Wofks assumed so dangetotis a phase that three fisoffc companies of troops wef6 hurried to the scene and ate how encamped in the works. Eatly in the afternoon Crowds began to assemble and stood about sullenly defiant of police orders to mote Oh. There was so much evidence of a pre-arrabged plan, every street leading to the Works hating its own division of the mob, that the authorities in hot haste sent for -more troops. When the sixty- three men who had been at work were placed in vans to be driven home from the works, it Was found necessary to charge the mob twice before a passage could be made for the wagons. The drivers had refused to leave the stables with the vehicles and policemen did the driving. During the melee jeers and threats Were hurled at the nonunion men, police And military, and some stones thrown. The severest fighting was on Hamilton street and in the charges some thirty or forty strikers were pricked by the bayonets. After a passage hnd been forced the military had all it could do to keep the-howling mob from chasing the wagons. IMMIGRANTS . INCREASE. SILVER COINAGE INCREASED. Be TRAIN MEN HELD. Coroner's Jury Decides There Was Criminal Negligence at Logan. LoGAif, July 17,—After two hours deliberation the coroner's jury in the inquest over the Union Pacific Pioneers excursion' tram disaster, returned a verdict that the death of the twenty- five passengers was caused by the ^ criminal negligence, carelessness and neglect of the conductor of the excursion train, A. L. Reed, and the engineer, J. D. Montgomery. Coroner MacFarlane at once issued a warrant to Sheriff Eddie to bring the men from Boone. They will be held, unless bail is given, until the grand jury convenes September 8. PRINTING OFFICE BURNED. Melbourne Scorched and lias a Narrow Escape from Serious Danger. MELDOUBNE July 19.—The printing office of the Cosmopolitan, with contents, was totally destroyed by fire. The fire was beyond control when the alarm was given. The large two-story planing mill and sash factory of D. B. Troxel stood just across the'alley, but by th'e well directed efforts of the fire department, it was saved with small damage of broken glass and from water. The printing office had just been furnished with a large cylinder press »nd engine. The loss will reach 83,500 to §3,000, with some insurance. New EJejctrlc Line, MASON CITY, J.uly 18,—Mason City and Clear Lake have granted franchises to the Mason City and Clear fake Traction company to build electric street car lines between the two towns'and through them, in all seven* teen arid a half miles of track, at a 'cost of $300,000.

Town councils will do well to remember that where sidewalks are laid on streets not yet brought to grade the expense cannot be assessed to the abutting property owners. The Sioux City council made the discovery a short time ago, and, as many property owners have been compelled to make payment for walks laid under such circumstances, resolved to say nothing of the matter outside, the committee room. One of them, however, explained the situation as a joke to a friend, who had been one of the sufferers. The latter promptly circulated the report. Now the city will be the defendant in suits aggregating several thousands of dollars, brought by the aggrieved citizens. It is almost certain that they will win. Waterloo dispatch: On the.Gth Rev. G. E. Scott, pastor of the First Methodist cfturch of Waterloo,' disappeared. Until recently his departure was attributed to mental derangement, but it now develops that he eloped with Daisy Dorian, the 15-year-old daughter of P.'• S. Dorian, a prominent citizen, whose home affords the comforts 'and luxuries enjoyed by the average young woman, Daisy is a charming girl, and it is recalled that for months past, at various church gatherings, sociables, suppers and the like, the pair would seldom be found far from each other, and the affection did not seem to be all on the minister's part, Daisy giving him a full share of attention. While these things were noticed by many, not all were suspicious. Scott drew $1,500 frdm the bunk before his departure, He had been in the ministry for twenty years and was a preacher At Burlington recently two unknown, men late at njght stopped W, L, Linder, a wealthy merchant, while on his way home, and without a word of warning shot him down and then disappeared down a side street, Either they were waiting for Mr, Linder pr they mistook Mm. for som^ on,e else, as they allowed others to go unmolested past the position which they had taken pn-a iovf stone wall on a fashionable residence street until he arrived.

"WASHINGTON, July 17.—Owing to the fact that the amount of silver dollars in the treasury available for the redemption of treasury notes has become reduced to .§10,059,582 and will be further reduced by redemption during the current month, the coinage of silver dollars by the mints will be increased from one and one-half million dollars to three million dollars per month from the first of August, and will probably be continued at that ratio in order that the treasury may have a sufficient stock to redeem treasury notes presented in exchange for silver dollars. The amount of treasury notes redeemed in silver dollars and cancelled from Nov. 1, 1893, to July 14, 1890, was §28,402,285. MALVERN, ARK., -BURNED. .Entire Town Swept Out of Existence by Fire. MALVERN, Ark., July SO.—The entire town was destroyed by an incendiary fire at 3 o'clock a. in. Only three house's are left standing. Four men are under arrest. Malvern was a city of 0,000 inhabitants, the business portion clustered, around the railroad station. All this section was destroyed. The burned buildings include the railroad depot, two hotels and a bank, all the principal business houses. Fire broke out sinmltaneously in three places at midnight. As there is ncfire apparatus, it burned itself out. The incendiaries will probably be dealt with summarily.. The loss is estimated at from 5300,000 to 5400,000, with light insurance. Large Increase Lust Year Over the Previous Year. WASHINGTON, July 19.—A statement prepared by the commissioner of immigration shows the number of immigrants who arrived in this country during the fiscal year ending June 30, to be 343,267, compared with 258,530 during the fiscal year 3895.

Cincoln People Turn Out to Welcome the Nominee Ilouie. LINCOLN, July 18,—Amidst an upronr of booming cannon, pealing church bells, screaming whistles and the shouts of 20,000 people, William J. Bryan, the democratic nominee for president, entered Lincoln. It was an ovation the like of which the people of this part of the country never before witnessed. Half the population, men, women and'children, were at the depot to welcome) Mr, Bryan home. It was a non-partisan demonstration, for both democrats and republicans participated. The mayor and the council and distinguished citizens of every political belief were at the train. The nominee was escorted to the state house, where a reception was held. CHICAGO'S CAR BARNS Loss BURN, ami 14 Boat Overturned at Cleveland With Awful Fatality.

As he entered the field a man in the crowd 'fired a revolver at him, missing him. The would-be assassin was at once arrested, He declared he fired a blank cartridge and had no intention of killing the president. The man gave his name as Francois, He is the man who, spme time ago, in order to draw a pension through supposed grievances, fired his revolver iu, the chamber of deputies, He declares the sole purpose of his act was to secure a hearing of his grievances by the president, Lebanon, Mo., dispatch; Mr, Bland has received many telegrams urging him to become a candidate for governor. He has issued a statement that he wil} not be a candidate for governor; that he does not want the nomination, and under no eircum. stances would he enter the gubernatorial race. He made this statement ij? the most positive and emphatic manner, leaving no doubt that he roeant it, and that further effort on the part of h,is friends to induce hjnu to become $ candidate for governor would be useless, In. this connection Mr, JJ^nd. said'he W a Canute for <Jemo0ra.tig pominatifln for cpq. n ^ hjg pW District, ,He *rewi* to congress, ta i| tlj 4witettu>eSe0 tint attar „,„.„ J& foreigners, wjjp. a,re ^ jngorjhjjd, in •«?f;WffctaX Sws MUM* $?«* ttwir ilS*". Vr", LoftDOft, July 19.— Salisbury has laid btefctfe the hotlse bl Idtds the gft^efs on the subject of arbitration. It is said the negotiation^ between the United States and Great Britain are not complete, but advancing amicably. On the smaller question ol Venezuela, regarding which the United States assumed an attitude of friendly protection, the difficulties arose out of the fact that Venezuela's claim placed two-thirds • of British Guiana subject to arbitration. The first thing necessary was to ascertain the actual facts in regard to the controversy from the history of Venezuela. When that was fully ascertained by the commission, in which both countries had confidence, it Was felt that the diplomatic questions Would not be difficult to adjust. But even if they should be, they will be overcome by arbitration, It has been impossible to move faster, owing to the absence of the full knowledge of the facts. The labor involved was enormous. In regard to a general system of arbitration between the United States and Great Britain, Salisbury said there would be difficulty in dealing with cases so large as contained vital issues, After much discussion with the United States on that point, he thought the tendency of the United States was to desire a rapid summary decision of the question. The British government thought the principle of obligatory arbitration was attended with considerable hazard. The proper machinery must first be provided. In recent years the United States had evinced a disposition to take up the causes of many South. American republics, but this government had no quarrel with that disposition. Great Britain had taken a similar interest in the dispute regarding the frontiers of Sweden, Holland, Belgium and Portugal. It was necessary to guard against an obligatory system of arbitration. For these reasons he had approached the question with considerable caution. In matters of such supreme importance it was necessary to be careful ol any step taken, Salisbury concluded by saying that with the consent of the United States he had pursued the unusual course of laying the papers on the table while the negotiations proceeded. This was done that the intellects on both sides might apply themselves to the matter affecting the welfare of the whole human race in such a singular degree and especially the good relations with us, with Avhom it was the desire of the government to be on the friendliest terms. Salisbury's remarks were heartily cheered. GIRLS DRAGGED TO DEATH. Foolish Act of a Boy Results In a Double Fatality. MARSHALL, Minn., July 17. — A terrible accident occurred a short distance from Marshall in which two girls were killed and another seriously injured. A little son of Mr. Beltzert was herding cattle with a pony, Two of his sisters, 4 or 5 years old, and a little daughter pf Mr. Dandurand came down 10 play with the herder. During the play he tied them all three in a string with a long rope, One end of the rope was attached to the saddle on the p:my, and some act of the children frightened him so that he ran away, dragging the girls about half a mile to Mr, Gaffney's. Mrs. Gaffney stopped the pony and cut the' children loose, ,but the daughter of Mr, Dandurand and one of Mr, Beltzer's daughters were dead. The other girl will live, it is thought, though she is badly hurt. The little boy was nearly crazed at the accident. MASSACRE OF 4OO PERSONS. Awful Work of Turks in Armenia — News of It Suppressed. LONDON, July ; 17.— The Chronicle publishes a dispatch 'from Constantinople which asserts that a massacre has occurred at Egin in the Diarbekir district of Armenia, in which 400 persons were killed and the city was pillaged, The Turkish authorities are trying- to keep the report of the massacre secret, The correspondent also asserts that in the Bitlis district almost every village has been ruined and that a massacre is imminent at Ajntab, the beginning being deferred until an order is received from the sultan's palace. _ Ex-Uovernor Russell is Dead, ST. ADELAIDE DE PABOS, Quebec, July 17.— Ex-Govprnor Wm. E. Russell, of Massachusetts, was found dead in s tent at the camp near here, ' Heart disease is the supposed cause of his death, He left his home shortly after his return from Chicago for the purpose of seeking rest. Mr, Russell was prominent candidate for president during the campaign which ended with '>ho Chicago convention. iit« Qr«ftt t6ftnr*d ftfft <5# fi W fokln. ftufifig the long civil waf s to ftf,; tthieii followed the ettiiictioa ei ftiifik dynasty, the imjSefial tills < Still claimed by iipsiaft liaufber ft*M says the Fortnightly Sevlew. it ffi' a hew dynasty Was ch6sen to but ftr end to the rule o* pi-eteiidefs. MkhsS Rotoahoff, the son of Philaret, the S fopbHtab of Rostov, was elected bvt kind of sfates-genefal convoked tot (hS purpose, There had been Vafious can didates, but a letter, said to be writ* tea by Phllaret, havihg beea placed be* fore the assembly, Which was couched in terms advocating constitutional ROV, eminent, the soft of that church dignU tary was elected. The latter said .that the assembly ought not to cobfer ir* responsible power upob the monarch whom they would appoint, but that the legislative power should be divided between the czar, the house of Boyars ana the stetes-geaeral. The oath Imposed upon Michael Romanoff was, therefore to the effect that he should neither de^ cree laws nor declare war nor conclude treaties of peace or alliance nor inflict capital punishment or confiscation of property upon any person except with the assent of the Boyars and the parliament, Afterward this letter, when it had served its purpose, was declared to be a forgery. A' few years later the young czar ordered the charter of 1613 to b% destroyed and to be replaced by another in which it was laid down that Michael Romanoff was elected czar "and autocrat" of all the Hlissias. Gradually the convocation even of a merely consultative assembly became less and less frequent. Finally its existence was altogether done away with. After 1682 no convocation took place any more except once under Catherine II.,' for a mere temporary object. It is to these sporadic cases of states- general, if they may be called so, and to, a charter enshrouded In some historical doubt that Russian liberals have in our time now and then referred as to a precedent. At least they did so in writings published abroad, Russian censorship having forbidden the subject to be touched upon at all. Peter L, Catherine I., Peter II., Anne, Elizabeth, Peter III., Catherine II., Paul I., Alexander L, Nicholas I., Alexander II., Alexander III., all ruled on the strict autocratic principle which Nicholas II.' is still bent upon .continuing. Peter I., the Great, enlarged upon it by extending the liability to corporal punishment from the nobility to the imperial family itself. He had his own sister whipped. He put his own son to the torture, who died from it. He, too, took a delight in chopping off the heads of'a row of political offenders while quaffing brandy between each fatal stroke of his reddened ax. It was sultanism with a vengeance. PAINTERS OF ROMANTICISM* Corot, and PIMPS. Ohjp,,' Jujy i?,— jt was at tfce meeting of the national republican executive committee to headquarters } R both New York Chassereau, Camille, Roeier Marllhat In Their Youth. No.anchorite.ever disdained the luxuries of life in better faith than the enthusiasts of romanticism, says Temple Bar. In the year 1832 a little band of artists—true bohemians, long-haired, cadaverous—extravagantly dressed in all colors of the rainbow, encamped themselves in a .desolate quarter of Paris. One comes suddenly from the roar and turmoil of the streets into an oasis of solitude and silence; the ruins of an old church make the place a sort of sanctuary;"the houses on each side, once imposing, are dilapidated and abandoned. In one of these an ample lodging was found for those immoderate lovers of art to whom the consideration of personal well-being was quite unimportant—who were more than content to breakfast on, an ode and to dine on a ballad, One empty room of immense size, going rapidly to rack and ruin, seemed especially fitted for their needs and was soon turned into a temple of the arts, Could the already; tumble-down place have possibly beea preserved to the present day, what a mine of wealth, what priceless treasures it would have been found to contain, for the impromptu decorations, were undertaken by hands, then quite unknown but bound to emerge into the full light of celebrity. Perched upon ladders, a rose behind the ear, cigarette In mouth, the peintres romantiques. produced masterpieces of genius. On narrow panels high above his head, Corot produced two exquisite views of Italy; below him Ohassereau designed a Diana bathing, where was already indicated the,almost savage grace and freedom of his later wprks; Camtlle Rogier covered the ceiling with oriental fancies; Mai'ilhat, Celestin Nanteuil, Adolphe Leleux added their daring and picturesque contributions, and, brush in hand, these artists—themselves aspiring poets—recited verses from Hugo and Alfred de Musset as' a fitting accompaniment to pictoriai Inspiration, It was one of those scenes which mer* Ited Carlyle's fanpiful description of the- Stirling club, "A little flowery ls!a»* of poetic intellect." 6,\}it«B ojf are the pets qf the royal Breathing Through the Nose, Why is it that the Indian squaw things to }OOH more after ber papppse's. pl?ysiela.l training tjjat toe American, mother aoes of her baby's 4eveJop- raen? £o mapy infants br through'their mouths, an^ sjeep the mouth open, and yet the m does not seem to notice or pprreot the/ !>a<J baWt, Nature jateaeij > $at th& breath ehouW be (Jrawa thrpwglj th? nose.
