^^v' - Xr 1 /; ' . wtttttaa, AfflOWA. IOWA. WEDNESDAY. JULY 29. 1890. JAPAN'S dfilAf tttSAL WAVfe. IN IOWA LAW INVALtB* StAtnto . r. PAW,, Jttly S3.—lii the tinited i Court here the Iowa anti-cigftf- Sttelaw was declared unconstitutional, ttlie grounds given for the decision were the same as in the liquor ef fginal package law. fins MoiJtfcB, July Ss.^Attorney General Remley has issued the follow' ' lag filMetfletit relative to the cigarette arise:' Judge Sanborn held that a S- Cent paper box containing ten cigarettes shipped into the state without other wrapping or boxing and by itself was an original package and can be lawfully sold in this state under the interstate commerce Clause of the constitution. The decision Went no further. It will not affect the sales in the ttate because there are no cigarettes shipped in that manner and from the nature of things they cannot be. The expense of shipping one 5• cent box by itself without other wrapping or other boxes of cigarettes contained with it in a larger package would eat up the profits. Railway and express companies cannot reduce their rates on cigarettes without making like reduction on other articles. I am confident there is not a box of cigarettes in the state which can lawfully be sold under Judge Sanborn's decision. WAS ALMOST A LYNCHING. Eckcrlobe'a Escape From a Jackson County Mob. DUBUQUE, July 24.—J. C. Longueville, attorney for Eckerlebe. waived further examination of the' accused, and the prisoner will now remain in custody until the September term of court. A posse of forty men had planned to go out to Andrew and lynch the prisoner. By some misunderstanding the leaders and others did not meet the party at the spot designated and the plan failed. This aroused the authorities and Eckerlebe was at once removed to the Anamosa penitentiary, Public opinion at Bellevue and vicinity is now almost unanimously against the prisoner, and is daily increasing. There is also a feeling against one of the girl's brothers, who at the time acted strangely, and while the sheriff and Mr. Longneville do not place much Confidence in this rumor, still it may create enough feeling to warrant an investigation before the trial takes place. The man Murphy, to whom Eckerlebe confessed, is not a detective, but a tramp charged with assault with intent to commit great bodily injury. NEW RAILROAD SCHEME. Incorporation of the North and fouth American Company in Iowa. DES MOIXES, July 26.—The North and South American Transportation Company has filed articles of incorporation with the secretary of state and connty recorder. J. H. Pennington, of Maine, and H. S. Wickes, of Chicago, are the incorporators. The capital stock is §20,000,000, and its issuance is conditioned upon the transfer of certain valuable contracts and concessions from South American republics now held or to be secured by Col. Pennington. The company is incorporated for twenty years. It is understood to be the first step toward a north and south railway to connect •with some gulf harbor, but the incorporators are reticent.

Grimes, of the firm of Grimes & Grimes, of Derby, doing a general store business, was struck by lightning and instantly killed while on his way home to supper. His life was insured for $7,000, part of it taken out but two or three days since. BREVITIES. Upon learning of the death of Gen. Geo. W. Jones, Gov. Drake directed that flags upon all public buildings be placed at half mast. The superior court of Cedar Rapids holds that the cigarette law is constitutional, thus joining issues with the federal court at St. Paul. Daisy Dorian, who eloped with Rev. Seott, of Waterloo, says Scott did not ask her to run away with him, but that she proposed it herself. DCS Moines dispatch: The equestrian figures of Generals Dodge, Crocker, Corse and Curtis have been put in place on the soldiers' monument, as were also the four figures representing the navy, artillery, infantry and cavalry. These figures have added greatly to the beauty of the monument. The entire plant of the Oskaloosa Packing Company was ruined by fire a few nights ago. The building and equipment originally cost 850,000 but as the plant had not been in operation for several years they bad depreciated greatly in value. A careful estimate places the loss at about §20,000, with no insurance. Harrieburg, Pa., dispatch: Sixteen years ago Garrett Light was living in Monticelio, Iowa, where Annie Rickel, a comely maiden, was his sweetheart. She loved Light and when he refused to marry her there was a quarrel and Annie was shot. It was supposed at the time that her wound was fatal, but after many weeks she recovered. Light was arrested anu protested that he was innocent of the shooting. The girl told a different story, which the jury believed, and her lover was convicted of assault with intent to kill. Light was released on bail pending an appeal to the higher court, but when that court affirmed the verdict he fled. He next appeared near Pittsburg, where his father had just died. He recsived 51,500 from the estate, and coming to Dauphin county, he purchased a small farm near this city. He prospered, and in the thought that nobody knew of his past, was content. But the authorities learned of his whereabouts and he was placed under arrest. AVhile admitting that he was the man wanted, he insisted that he did not shoot the girl, but th at another man did. Six boys who were in an apple trae at Morning Side, a Sioux City suburb, had a heavy charge of shot poured into them, and as the smoke of the gun cleared away the ground around the trunk of that tree might have been taken for a field of carnage, Not one of them had been missed and there were mingled cries of ''Oh! I'm killed," "I'm shot to pieces," "I'm dying," and the like. The boys were George Bedal, Ed. Bedal, James Ritter, H. L. Webber, George Hefner and P. filler. The shot was fi-red by W. C. Hoit, the photographer, The boys were taken to their homes and surgeons were sent for- . George Bedal was found to be the most seriously injured. ' In one of his sides there were over 50 No. 8 shot, The Ritter boy's head was bleeding from shot that penetrated the sc^lp baoktof the ear and the other boys were suffering from wounds in the body. Nonw of them, however, had any shot in the.face. There was a general uprising among the parents of the boys, which resulted in a united complaint at police headquarters, fle- teetive Brott and Sergeant powns, went to tyornjn.g< Side on the elevated road, arrested Mr. Jfajt and brought hiin to town. He was charged aefinvilt with intent to caiamit bodily harm,' Mftiry lost l-afnon* Cuban TnBnrfrent til* MM IH a Baltic. WASHtSGTOS, July 24.—Jose Maceo, the famous leader ol the Cuban insurgents, is dead at last. Since the present Cuban i-ebellion began, nearly two years ago, Maceo's death has been reported in this country probably twenty times. Each time the report has beeii denied, and Maceo has f e- ettfoi-ced the denial with fresh evidence of his activity. About two weeks ago the last report of his death was received in this country, and though it was promptly denied by^the insurgent representatives, it was confirmed by an official dispatch from Havana. There is no longer any doubt of Maceo's death in an engagement with tho Spanish three weeks ago in a remote part of Cuba. No other particulars are given in the dispatch. HAVANA, July 23.—The insurgents are beginning to use dynamite more freely in their efforts to prevent Captain General Weyler from moving Spanish troops by rail. The traveling public, the Cubans declare, were warned in time-by a proclamation from Maximo Gomez, chief of the revolutionists, against riding on trains which carried troops, and cannot, therefore, with justice complain if injured by accident when upon such trains in violation of the decree Mientioned. HIT THE GOVERNOR. Lively SorluinniRC on tho Platform nt Columbia During a Political Sleeting. COLUMBIA, S. C., July 2(3.—While Gov. Evans was addressing a political meeting at Florence, Judge Joseph H. Earle took offense at some allusion of the governor to himself (Earle) and struck Governor Evans on the head. Thela.t- ter returned the blow, landing on Judge Earle's eye, drawing blood. The whole assemblage was wild' with excitement and many revolvers were drawn, but the trouble subsided after the parties had been separated. There was also a lively passage at arms between Generals Watts and Richbourg, candidate for adjutant general, the latter telling Watts finally that he would hold him personally responsible for what he had said. SCORE OF LIVES LOST. Cloudburst In Colorado Results in Great Damage. MORRISON, Col., July 25.—A cloud burst in Bear Creek canyon brought down a solid wall of water ten feet high, which did great. property damage and caused the loss of fifteen to twenty lives. The known dead are: Mrs. Miller and three children and a party of campers, fifteen > or eighteen in number, who were living in a small house just below town. It is feared there has been more loss of life, as there were scores of people camping along both sides of the creek, both above and below town. DENVER, July 27.—It is known that twenty-two persons lost their lives in the cloudburst at or near Morrison, and it is feared that the full returns will increase the number of fatalities. At Golden and Mount Vernon seven lost their lives. JNTERNATIONAL INCIDENT Spanish Gunboat Fires On an American Schooner. SOUTH PORT, N, C,, July 25.—The schooner, Governor Smith, of Boston for Wilmington, N.C., has arrived in quarantine. She left Gibara on July 14, Two days later off the Cuban coast, in the neighborhood of Nuevitas harbor, she passed a Spanish gunboat a mile and a half away. The gunboat fired on the schooner, sending a solid shot over her deck. The shell fell in the sea a quarter of a mile to starboard, doing no damage. Captain Patrick immediately ran up the American ensign and left the neighborhood as quickly as possible.

AVASUJXGTON, July 24.—Once more treasury officials are feeling cj>mfort- able, for the gold reserve has been onc;e more placed safely over the 8100,- Ouo.OOO mark.

WASHINGTON, July 23.—-An interesting report ol the gf-eat tidal wave itt Japan has been received by the Sccfe- tarjr of statfe by the tJnited States legation at Tokio. This is the fii-st authentic report of the disaster to reach America. The report says: A holrible disaster has befallen Japan, causing the death of 30,000 ol her people and leaving t\vice that num- bet 1 homeless and .starving. On the evening of June 18Vat about' 8:10 ot 8:20 o'clock, the northeastern littoral of the Island of Hondo, for a distance of nearly 200 miles, was submerged by a temendotis tidal wave, eighty feet in height, which, sweeping irresistably upon the coast, only spent its energy after a rush of miles into the interior, and retired, leaving H, desolate waste of sand and debris, where had stood many homes and thriving villages. During June 15 a number of earthquake shocks had been felt by the inhabitants of the unfortunate prefectures of Miyage. Aotnori and Iwate, but these slight disturbances gave no warning to the fishing people who were celebrating the May festival, which, accordtug ; to the Chinese calander, fell upon that day. At about 8 o'clock the people along the coast were startled from their tranquility by a fearful roaring from the sea, likened to the report of heavy artillery. Roused to action by cries of "tsunamai, tsun- amai' 1 (tidal wave, tidal wave,) from those who realized the -impending 'disaster, the inhabitants rushed from their homes into a night of pitchy blackness to be overtaken and engulfed in their flight to higher ground. The first meager reports from the scene of the catastrophe gave little idea of its magnitude, but each succeeding budget of news arriving from the north has added to the appalling character of the disaster, until at the time of writing (June 25) it is estimated that the mortalities will number more than 30,000. The magnitude of the losses of life is better appreciated by comparing this catastrophe with those known so well in history. Lisbon, at a conservative estimate, lost but 25,000 of its people in its memorable earthquake, and Japan but 7,500 in the Gifu disaster of 18U2—in fact, the mortalities exceed those of the Chinese- Japanese war. No Americans have suffered either in person or property, COLD DEMOCRATS. CHICAGO, July 24.—The meeting ot gold standard democrats, called to consider the advisability of issuing a call for a national convention, was held at the Auditorium Annex. After a long debate, a resolution was adopted to the effect that it was the sense of the meeting that a democratic convention should be held and a democratic platform enunciated and candidates for' president and vice- president chosen, and that the said convention should be held not later .than September 2. CHICAGO, July 2G.—The resolutions adopted by the gold democrats in brief recommend that '.a thoroughly sound and patriotic declaration of democratic principles be enunciated, and that candidates for president and vice-president in accord therewith be nominated and that the national committee (to be selected hereafter) meet at Indian- ^polis August 7, for the purpose of issuing a formal call for a national democratic convention to be held not later than September 2, at such place, and to be constituted and convened in such manner as the national committee may determine.

There has been continuous fighting in Crete the last few days. The Turks have been trying to capture the heights of Kissamo on the Selino road. If they could capture this position they would cut off the western portion of Crete from the rest of the island. In the course of their fighting the Turks lost 200 killed and (50 wounded. The Cretan loss was 20 killed and 00 wounded. The deputies absolutely refuse to meet-until they receive a reply to their propositions from the sultan, A Hong Kong dispatch says a missionary writes to a correspondent there fully confirming previous reports of Japanese atrocities in the south of the Island of Formosa. The missionary declares that he is abje to substantiate every fact. The Japanese, he adds, are fast exterminating the Chinese in that locality, Over sixty villages have been burned and thousands have been killed with revolting brutalities. The signing of the treaty of peace between Japan-and China ended hostilities be- twe^ijihe twQ- nations except in the i^laiiSr.of •Formosa,, By the terms of -Vhe 1 -treaty " I^jrojosa was ceded to Japan. But the inhabitants of the ibland remained to be reckoned with, They refused to recognize the authority of the Japanese, whose first effort to establish themselves on the island was the signal for an outbreak, The Japanese soon found they had another war qji.thoir, hands, and from 1 ' time to time since the conclusion of peace a year ago they have dispatched naval and military forces to Formosa.
