OtttratvA, May 14.—Plnkerton detectives have fcuccecded in elearinpfthe mystery in con bectioh, with the' re fefety of the Bradley Sank at Kldoh on tne momingr of February i* when the fefcfe whs blown open and 50,200 taken 3?b'e instigator, the city marshal of Eldon, has confessed, and is under afrest, with Dick Dodd, a gambler of Ottnmvm Marshal Stevens also im plicales three Chicago crooks. The confession of Stevens was made when he was confronted with soinc of the evidence by tme of the 1'inkertotis. tie first tried to tell a story of the three tten forcing liim to aid them in committing tho robbery, but afterwards went before the grand jury and told tho story without stickt. He and .Modd were then arrested. Stevens .conceived the idea of robbing the bank in 1895 and interested Dodd, who secured the cracksmen. The men made three trips to Eldon before they •were (successful. Stevens guarded the bank while the men robbed it, and then aided them in stealing a team ,aad buggy to get away with their booty. Tho crooks went to Ottumwa, were met on tho outskirts of tho town t>y Dodd, who took them to his home fctod kept them in hiding for several days, when they went on to Chicago. The inoney was divided at Dodd's house. Dodd received 8000, but the Chicago men skipped with the rest oi the cash. Stevens came to Ottumwa, mid when he found out that he had been flimflammcd went to Chicago and tried to find his men, but was unable to do so. Stevens has always borne the very best of reputation. He has been ah officer at Eldon for years, and the people of that town will hardly believe his own story of the crime. The cause is said to have been an expensive ,vife. OTTUMWA, May 14.—Dick Dodd has confessed to complicity in the robbery of the Eldon bank. In searching Dodd, the chief of police found a fancy pocket knifo with the name of James L. Aylesworth on it. Aylesworth was a traveling man, who came to Ottumwa about April 10, got 'on a drunk and was slugged in an alley and robbed of a diamond valued at 8105 and a number of other valuables. He was badly slugged, and died at his home in Chicago a few days after, though his death is said to have been caused by typhoid pneumonia. Dodd told the officers that he got the knife from a well known young man. The police learned that this young man, with two others, was seen with Aylesworth in several saloons, and the arrest of two of them followed. Those arrested were Fred Grube and Gerry Devol. Grube and the other one not yet arrested are from prominent families. AN ENTIRE FAMILY POISONED. Taken Violently 111 at Murshiilltcnvn and No Cause Is Known.

AinfexS, May 11.—The correspondent of the Associated Press learns, on the very best authority, that Greece has made a written application to the powers through their representatives at Athens with a view to obtaining 1 mediation. All the representatives have promised in their replies to^ use their best offices, except the German minister, whohas merely acknowledged the receipt of the note from the cabinet. The porte is inclined to support the powers with a view to the facilitation of negotiations, but it declines to consent to an armistice* on the ground that thi% would enable Greet ' '^ reorganize her forces. Atir&i.U, May iZ. —The diplomatic ticguifations which have been proceeding have been brought to a definite conclusion. Greece has formally adhered to the preliminaries for peace as agreed upon between the powers and the different legations have received positive assurance to investigate them and authority to treat with Turkey. The negotiations at Athens arc regarded as concluded. ATHENS, May 11.—The reply of the Greek government to the powers was as follows; "The royal govern ment, in taking the note and declaration of the lUissian representatives, acting in the name of the ministers of the powers, declares that it will proceed to recall the royal troops from Crete, adheres formally to autonomy for Crete and confides interests of Greece to the hands of the powers." WABUISOTOS, May 13.—Athens advices say the Greek gunboat Venus captured yesterday off the island of Tenedos a Turkish steamer having on board 100 Turkish soldiers, six officers, a large amount of munitions of war and £40,000 in cash. CONSTANTINOPLE, May 13.—The ambassadors of the powers held a prolonged conference, at the close of w.'uch they presented to the Turkish government a collective memorandum proposing an armistice between Turkey and Greece on the basis of the negotiations for peace now in progress through the powers. The memorandum enumerates the conditions which have been accepted by Greece and begs the porte to issue the necessary orders to arrest the progress of the Turkish troops. LONDON, May 14.—The situation at tho scene of hostilities appears to be that Turkey is determined to occupy Domokos before consenting to an armistice, and that Greece is convinced of the impossibility of holding out against the serious attack which Ed- ham Pasha is preparing to deliver. It has been decided to evacuate Domokos and to fall upon the old frontier. CONSTANTINOPLE, May 15.—The Turkish government has replied to the powers that the sultan will be in a position to discuss tho offered mediation between Turkey and Greece after the greater Bacam festival, which ends to-night. CONSTANTINOPLE, May 17.—Sixteen million pounds (Turkish) is mentioned as the sum Turkey will demand as an Indemnity from Greece. LONDON, May 17.—The sultan's reply to the note of the ambassadors at Constantinople offering mediation, saying he would be ready to discuss the matter aEter tho Greater Bairam festival, justifies the fear that the powers have drawn a genii out of the war that will not be easy to get back, Abdul Hamid's answer is cool, almost to the point of insolence. It is that of a, sovereign with a powerful army behind him, and he i§ disposed to treat the powers cavalierly. Articles published in the semi-official press of the continent show that the increase in the prestige of the sultan is tho chief concern of the, European cabinets, and that the prospects of an effective enforcement of general reforms for the 'Turkish empire are thereby rel- ugated to the very distant future, PRELUDE TO IDAHO TROUBLE.

F. of tho Idaho National Guard stationed at Warclner, received a telegram from Mullen that the steel house where the guns and ammunition are kept Avas entered at midnight by masked men who stole 7r> guns and 800 rounds of ammunition. Lieutenant Liuck wired Governor Steunburg for instructions. Linck will go to Mullen to try to recover the guns and ammunition.

HAVANA, via Key West, May 14.— Apparently reliable news of the most important insurgent success in Cnba has reached Havana. It appears that General Calixto Garcia and General Rabi fell on a Spanish force which was carrying food and supplies frotn Manzanillo to Bayamo and captured th< convoy, routed GeneralLoho's column! and pursued him so vigorously that In fled to the coast with the remnant oi his brigade and took a ship at Cabo- corns for Manzanitlo. It is said so se« vcre were the losses and so thoroughly disorganized were his men that tho Spanish general did not dare to attempt to retrace his steps to Man/a- nilio by land. This engagement, which is regarded by the Cubans as the most important of any battle since Cacarijicar?.. goes to show how helpless the Spanish are in tho country east of the trocha. Spain lost 5,000 and food and arms without end along the road to Bayamo, aod the Spanish soldiers now call it "The Road to Death." General Lono inarched his men straight into the trap prepared for them. When tho column >was within short range the insurgents opened fire, but with little result. They realized they had been ambushed and saw by the gaps iu their ranks that the enemy was in force. They advanced at the word but another volley from the insurgents caused some wavering and in a few minutes the retreat was general. SPANISH PAPERS COMMENT. Blither Urge tho Government to Repel Government Interference, MADRID, May 17.—The Heraldo, referring to the possible action of the United States for relief of AmericanG in Cuba says: "The Spanish government will have universal opinion on its side if it acts with energy in repelling American interference in our affairs, but. this opinion will bo hostile unless the government ceases making concessions. These displays of weakness, if they do not the difficulty of solving the question, certainly do not improve the situation in Cuba." The Corrcspondia announces that the reported increase in the strength of the Spanish navy was decided upon in view of the possibility of iutct national conflicts, The Kuboiilc 1'lngue.

This decision has tho effect of continuing the control of the tele phone by the Bell company seventeen years from the date oi the last patent granted in 1891. Governor Clough, of Minnesota, has fixed upon Friday, August 20, as date for the execution of Lewis Kelli' ban, the Shcrbm-no bank robber and murderer. The reason for deferring the execution so long is that the trial judge sentenced Kellilmn to foui month's solitary confinement in the Marion county jailibnfore ho should be hung, and this sentence was passed April 12. President McKinley's special envoy, tho Hon. William J. Calhoun, left Tampa, Fla., a few days ago for Havana. He is to investigate the death of Dr. llicardo Ruiz, a natural ized American citizen. Consul General Lee reported that Euiz was murdered in tho jail of Guanabacoa. This was denied by the Spanish government. It is stated that Mr, Calhoun's mission is a judicial and not a diplomatic oue. Nevertheless, it is of common report that the president hopes to see through the eyes of his special envoy something of tho actual conditions in Cuba, It is not improbable that besides the Kuia inquiry Mr. Calhoun may learn o\ some matters which will have a distinct bearing on the Cuban poliej' oj the administration. Key AVost dispatch: The Tetucin battalion has had a fierce combat at San Fernando, near La Roforma, with somo forces belonging to Gen. Gomez's rear guard and others of that district.
