The robbers then drilled a bole through the brick vault large enough to admit a man. The vault contained a large iron safe which was blown almost 5&td fragments by some highly explosive, supposed to be nitro glycerine. The cashier received S500 in cash from Rhodes. It was after banking hours. Contrary to his custom, be took the cash home* as the safe has a time lock and could not without great difficutly bejopened. It is supposed the robbers knew of this shipment of cash and took the occasion to secure it. In this they were foiled by the lucky circumstances of the cash having arrived after banking hours. The cashier says thej' had less cash in the bank at anytime since its establishment. So far as known no one heard the explosion but it must have been a heavy one as the vault is badly wrecked and the safe demolished. Pieces of the safe six inches square and one inch thick were picked up about the building. Tae greatest loss is to the vault, safe and building, which is estimated at 81,000.

ALL OVER THE WORLD £IRE Iff Will Take No Step Until Action of Criminal Court U Known. ISDEPESDESCE, Oct. 10. The Scott case came up before the Methodist . Episcopal conference. The case was referred toF. M. Coleman, the presiding elder of the Cedar Rapids district for investigation, pending the decision of the criminal court. The effect of this will be that when the decision of the court becomes known, Scott will be brought to trial before a special committee, composed in a regular manner under the laws of the church. It was not thought best to bring the case to an immediate trial, owing to the decision of the-insanity commission, for fear of prejudice when the matter comes before the criminal court.

Carroll dispatch: The jury in the case of the state against Peter Weise, for the murder of Ben Levich, brought in a verdict of not gnilty. Levich was murdered on Sunday afternoon, February 2. on a farm four miles north of Manning. He was a Hebrew peddler and supposed to have a, large amount of money with him. The murder was supposed to have been for the purpose of robbery. At first it was thought he had been killed by a tramp, who is said to have been seen near the place. The murder was a very brutal one, the assassin having approached his victim from behind and fired a load of shot from a shotgun into the back of his head. The murder took place on a deserted farm and must have taken place in full view of the road, which is traveled quite frequently. A coroner's inquest was held and the remains of the unfortunate man were turned over to his friends at Des Moines. He left a wife and five children. \V. A. Cummings was found guilty a second time in the district court at at Des Moines and simultaneously his attorneys produced evidence of unlawful conduct on the part of three of the jurors who served on the jury which convicted him the first time. Cummings has been convicted twice of the crime of rape. One victim was 8 years old and the other 10. The first case was concluded last week and Cummings was immediately put on trial for the second offense. While being tried his attorneys were investigating the conduct of the jurymen to whom he was tried the first time. They introduced evidence to substantiate their claim tD and support their motion for a new trial on the first charge. The evidence was to the effect that three of the jurors who convicted Curnmings had visited the river bank where it was alleged the crime had been committed .and had examined it with a view to settling the question of whether or not a man could hide at that location, as claimed in the trial of the case. The jurors deny the charge. Owing to the continued illness of Juror Kepple, the Bock murder case, at New Hampton, came to a sudden and unexpected conclusion. Hon. J. B. Bane, attorney for the defense, made the following statement to the court: "In view of the fact that the trial has already been prolonged, and feeling that the jury must bring in a verdict of acquittal on ground of insanity, and knowing that it would be the duty of this court on receiving such a verdict to send the defendant to the insane asylum at Independence, and lest the defendant might be discharged therefrom bofore he has fully recovered from his epileptic insanity, and providing, that there is a depart ment toy' the insane a-t Anaraosa penitentiary, with the consent of my associate counsel and of defendant, we withdraw the plea of not guilty and plead guilty, and ask that the court sentence the defendant to the pen- itf?8tiary IPV 4fe, M Ju,dge Ho^son sentenced the prisoner to tiie penitentiary for life, und Sheriff Murphy left at once with the prisoner for Anamosa.

Some reports estimate the loss at over fcvo,000,000. Many lives Were lost. Just ho* many it is impossible to say as yet, and 3o.WO persons are homeless. Tiro thousand bouses, including every bank in the city, of which there were five, burned. The custom bouse, theater, and many other public buildings were swept away by the flames. Practically all the grocery and supply stores are gone, and thousands of residents, homeless and hungry, swarm in the streets and neighboring -woods. Xbt only is the food supply extremely low, but the fresh water supply is exhausted largely by the efforts of the firemen to extinguish the flames. Now the air is filled with a stifling dust of cinders and ashes, which adds greatly to the suffering from thirst. Business is entirely suspended, and every effort is directed toward relieving the distress of the sufferers. DARING DEED IN MINNESOTA. Two Masked Bobbers Rob the Hank at Sherburne. FAIKMOXT. Minn., Oct. S.—Two masked and bicycle mounted robbers swept into the little town of Jsher- burne, fourteen miles from Fairmont, dashed into the bank of Sherburne, murdered the cashier and a bystander, secured $1,000 from the cash tray, mounted their wheels and escaped before the eyes of the startled villagers. The affair was conducted with all the bravado of the frontier, and the killing of two men, one of whom died instantly, was purely wanton, as neither made any resistance. AN ENTENTE REACHED.

Atkinson, dem.. and the entire ticket has been elected in Georgia by majorities of not less than -40,000. The London Chronicle says that it learns from a good source that the czar and Lord Salisbury have agreed upon a policy for the ultimate deposition of the sultan. A dispatch says Patrick J. Tynan, the alleged dynamiter who was arrested in Boulonge-Sur-Mer, has 'been released by the French government, and that he has started on his return to the United States. A dispatch says the Leadville strike will not be compromised. The miners will fight to the bitter end. The mine managers have given up ail idea of any compromise and will simply go ahead and start their properties on a small scale. They will get as many men as possible and what cannot be had here they will bring from outside the state. According to reliable advices from Havana, every night prisoners are taken in a boat, carried out and thrown into the sea. where the sharks, which are numerous, devour them and leave no sign.

Chicago dispatch: Police officers from the Harrison street station are investigating a case of -wholesale infanticide. The bodies of three babies have recently been taken out of the Chicago river at the Harrison street bridge, and in each case an autopsv showed that the infant was thrown in the river while alive.

Chicago, 111., dispatch: The United States court of appeals is hearing arguments in the case of the United States against the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul Railway Company, involving 3,500,000 acres of land donated thirty- five years ago by Iowa and Minnesota to Hastings aud Dakota, Southern Minnesota and McGregor and Missouri river railroads, all now a part of the St. Paul system. The government brought the suit and imposed a fine of 55,000 for neglecting to make annual reports of all the lands in possession as provided by the law of 1878. The case is an appeal from the Milwaukee federal court, where it was decided against the government. Sir William Vernon Harcqurt, the liberal leader in the house of commons, speaking recently at Ebbvale, England, expressed himself upon the Turkish question for the first time since the present conditions have developed. Hu called upon the government to grant security and protection to the Armenians. The Turkish government, he said, could never be reformed until it ceased to exist. But, he added, England could not act alone, because only a military occupation of Turkey would avail to protect the Armenians. England must co-operate with Russia, the first step being to obliterate the Cyprus convention, by which the island of Cyprus was ceded to Great Britain. Berlin dispatch: The sensational news that Boumania and Greece have joined the driebu'nd, and that the formal agreement to this effect was signed at Bucharest during the presence there of Emperor Francis Joseph' of Austria, after the opening of the canal through the iron gates of the Danube, is being discussed in political circles. The state incuts made are believed to be correct and are regarded as being of prime importance, for the drejbund will thus have valuable allies in these two countries in the event of the disruption of Turkey or any serious complications in the east. King Charles of Rouwmnia lias long been anxious to join the drejhund, but it has only been lately that the Bargain acceptable to a.1) parties wjis drawn up.

IroRfc, Oct. 11.—The World's Havana special says: The order prohibiting the American consul genera) ffom tisitinj? the military prisons keeps him from personally investigating the condition of the Americans imprisoned there. He has to fely on what Weyler tells him. In the last interview Lee Complained oi the sanitary Condition of the cells the American prisoners were in. IrYeylef replied: "Oh, 1 have attended to that matter. They have been removed to cells 41 and 42." General Lee fetifed flattered at his supposed success, not knowing that the Americans always occupied those cells. They were gloomy and so damp that water oozes from the ceilings and trickles down the Avails, wetting the floor, which never dries. In one of these cell Melton, an American newspaper correspondent, and George Aguirre were locked up with a man suffering from small pox. The disagreement between \Ve}-ler and Lee continues and arrested Americans are suffering the consequences. STRIKE IS OFF. Committee of the Brotherhoods Settle It.

British Xarnl Reinforcements Sent to j Zanzibar. LOXDOX, Oct. 12.— The dispatch oil British naval reinforcement at Zanzi.| bar has excited interest in the silna- 1 tion and is universally interpreted as a demonstration against Germany, as I the condition of a. .'airs in Zanzibar does not justify such measures. It is admitted" here that Germany has the I technical right to remove Ivhalid from] her consulate at Zanzibar, but the method adopted and the crowing of the German press in connection with I the affair, openly declaring that the I measure was a slap for Great Britain, I has acted like a bellows to the anti- German fire burning in this country, The Spectator urges the government I to arms in Zanzibar as an answer to Germany's unfriendly act. It is almost impossible to exaggerate the feeling in Great Britain against Germany at the present moment, aroused by offensive articles in the Garman press. The Globe epitomizes the) general opinion of the British press in the remark: "If Great Britain is so unfortunate as to incur the anger of Germany, we have no doubt as to the result." IN TURKEY. The Sultan Takes a Decided Stand Regarding the Bosphorus. CONSTANTINOPLE, Oct. S. —It is semi-1 officially announced that Turkey has decided not to admit the United States cruiser Bancroft or the guardships of Greece and Holland through the Dardanelles to act as protectors of the I embassies of the three nations in case | of emergency. It is known that I Russia objected to the presence of these warships in the Bosphorus. Her objection is said to be based on the ! Berlin agreement, which excludes from naval representation in the Bos- phorus powers not parties to that agreement. It is believed that Unitec States Minister Terrell a month sent an urgent request to Washington for war vessels. It is further intimated that the United States will insist, by force if necessary, upon.their presence, on the Bosphorus, taking the ground that such a step is not an unfriendly act to Turkey, in view of all the circumstances, and that it is necessary to the protection of the lives andj property of American citizens. 3REAT DAY AT GALESBURG.
