OTTUMWA, .Tuly 0.— United States officers captured one of the notorious Bill Doolen gang near Ottumwa. The man caught is James H. Black. The Doolen gang robbed a train in Oklahoma after a long series of depra.da- tions and were captured by officers, but not until after they had killed three deputy marshals. They were placed in jail at Outhrie, and th« particulars of their escape by a sensational jail delivery are well known. Black was known to have relatives living a few miles from Ottumwa, and the officers were notified to look out for him. Deputy Marshal AYray learned that he had shown up at the home of his grandfather, near Martinsburg, and he took a posse and went after him. Trouble was expected, but Black was taken completely by surprise and •was on his way to Ottumwa before he had the opportunity to get any assistance from relatives. Black admits he is one of the men who escaped from the Outhrie jail, but claims to have no connection with the gang. An indictment for Black on three counts for murder, however, had been sent to the officers, accompanied by a description that could not be mistaken. Tie will be taken back to Guthric at once, and great precaution against possible surprise by members of the gang still at large will lie taken. ______ SEN! OM SED TO BE HELD, Urllllant Carnival During Fair Vieek J'ractieally Determined Upon. DBS MOIXKS, July 7.— The success of the grand carnival, which is to beheld in this city at the time of the state fair, is practically assu rod. A general meeting of the committees in charge of the affair was beat at the Commercial Exchange, at which definite plans for raising the funds necessary were made. It was nnt only decided that the carnival should be a revival of the Seni'Om-Sed, but it was concluded to give that name to the celebration, and to make the Seni-Om-Sed association a permanent one. The enthusiasm was best indicated by the fact that nineteen of those present pledged themselves to give 81,350 towards the carnival. . . GASOLINE EXPLOSION, The tragedy was witnessed by several of their children, who stood a few rods away, alraid to come near. The mother and father had had frequent quarrels and fights and had led a brutal and profane life. They leave nine children, ranging in age from 5 years to "'.', years. WH1TCOMB DANGEROUS. Makes nil Attack on lite Keepers and Ktcapes—Is Kecaptured. CHF.ROKKK, July 10.—Charles H. \Vhitcomb, who for the past year has terrorized the people of this section of the state by the bold highway robberies, etc.. and who was brought from Nebraska and safely lodged in jail at Cherokee about two weeks ago by Sheriff Wheeler, made a murderous assault at the jail upon Janitor Hey- iner and W. W. Roberts, who were furnishing the prisoners with supper. Plumbers had been working about the jail and Whitcoinb had secured a large / piece, of gas pipe, with which _he ! attacked the men unaware, inflicting ! serious injuries about the head of ! both, and then effected his escape. i The news soon spread over the city and in a short time the frenzied j citizens had the escaped prisoner safely i shackled in the jail. IOWA CONDENSED. series of deadlocks. ST. PKTERSBCRO, July 7.—Novoe Vremyaka strongly exhorts the government to abandon any further subterfuges in the negotiations for peace between Greece and Turkey, unless the latter country wishes the powers to adopt harsh measures to enforce the peace program. , CONSTANTINOPLE, July 8.—Russia has sent a circular note to the powers suggesting that steps be taken to expedite the conclusion of peace negotiations between Greece and Turkey. This action is regarded as of the greatest importance and as indicating Russia's desire to forestall a similar proposal upon the part of the other powers. The German ambassador has received fresh and precise instructions to insist upon Turkey's acceptance of the strategic frontier proposed by the poxvers. CONSTANTINOPLE, July 11.—The ambassadors of the powers are likely to recommend to their governments to recall them and organize a naval demonstration to bring the porte to time on peace negotiations with Greece, pointing out the futility of sending notes which fail to impress the Turkish government. The Turkish Dardanelles squadron has been ordered to be ready to proceed to Crete with three months' provisions. All officers will join their ships within three days. TROUBLE WITH JAPAN. At Ely, a party near Cedar Rapids, while of men were firing an anvil a ring several inches in diameter burst. One piece struck Mrs. Vou- dracek in the hip. burying itself four inches in the flesh.

Joseph Placek was fatally injured by the premature discharge of a small cannon ..._..!_ .. f _ J ,.1 !,__ n V.1 n -.1..-. l»i *-Vl 'PVl*» XKW YOKK. July 10.—The Herald's Havana special says: The threatened invasion of Matanzas province by the insurgents has been begun. Several large bodies of Cubans have crossed the line from Santa Clara and the strength of the force engaged in the westward movement is estimated from 4,000 to 0,000. Lacret and Parese, who recently crossed Jticaro Moron tfocha and passed into Santa Clara from Camaguey, have united with other leaders and there are now five or six chiefs, each with considerable following, moving into Matanzas, where the insurgent forces were ordered to mobilize. Men have been summoned from the plantations, armed and ordered . westward. Whether the movement was ordered to embarrass General AVeyler, who had recently been rushing all available troops to the orient, or to detract attention from General Gomez, who is supposed to be hemmed in by the Spanish columns near Sancti Spiritus, is not yet clear. It may do both. A WARLIKE SPANIARD, Incenulary Speech Made by a Prominent Liberal. MAmnn, July 9.—Marquis Vega Armajo, ex-president of the cortes and ex-minister of foreign affairs, speaking at a public meeting at Saragossa, said: "If called to power, our program will comprise the necessity of stopping the humiliating policy which allows the Yankees to trample on Spanish rights, and revise the proceedings of Spanish judges. We shall instruct our navy to search within Spanish waters for filibustering vessels which under the American flag bring help to the insurgents. Our attitude toward the United States will be energetic. I am sure energy will not bring a rupture, but if war coraos the Yankees will find out who they are to fight with in the fields of Cuba." Senator Quay Is a Candidate. HABIHSHURO, Pa., July 12.—Senator Quay authorized the announcement that he would be a candidate for the United States senate to succeed himself. This sets at rest all rumors that have been going the rounds to the effect that lie would retire.

Such a meteorological phenomenon in the hottest month of the year has never been experienced; in this part of the fatherland before. JJefore the storm the weather wns extremely sultry. ' Gradually clouds began to darken the sky, and within a few minutes after there was sudden darkness, followed by rushing torrents of rain, which almost submerged the villages. The rain was followed by a terrific hail storm, some of the hail stones being of almost incredible size. Thousands of head of cattle were killed outright, aud many fataily injured.

Aveikle is said to have eloped with Mrs. Oestnian, wife of a photographer .it Oskaloosa, who was celebrated for ler beauty. Mrs. Gestmau came to ntumwa, was met by him, and the couple left Ottnmwa for Omaha, it is alleged. Farther than that they have not been traced. The Wyman-lland company will-not attempt to prosecute Avsiklc, as the amount of his defalcation with the firm was not large and he is a relative of aprorninent member of the firm. He left a large amount of unpaid bills about town. A most horrible' accident occurred a few days ago on the \V. id Owens farm, a mile nnd a half south of Lake City. Hoy Pearce, son of Bert Pearce, 13 years old, was mowing with a team and mowing machine. Claude Pearce, aged 10, Eddio Pearce, aged 7, sons of A, J. Pearce, with Julius Westrinp, were out in the meadow from their home in town playing, Eddie Pearce was chased by a bumble bee and jumped in front of the "cutter bar of the mowing maphino while it was in motipH, One fppt .was completely severed and the bth'or cut' nearly' off.

SAN FRANCISCO, July 9.—The Japan Herald,commenting upon the Hawaiian situation, editorially says: ''Unless Japanese claims are fully met and promises of future good behavior are made regarding the Sandwich Islands, we will soon hear that the flag of Japan has replaced that of the present shaky republic. That the Japanese government has a just claim against the Hawaiian republic is beyond question. That the Japanese will press the claim there is no doubt. AVho will take sides with Hawaii; America? With Japan's strong fleet of torpedo boats, Americans could not land a iiingle man in the Hawaiian islands. They would meet the fate of "the Chinese on board the Kowoshong in the late war." SENATOR HARRIS IS DEAD. BREVITIES. North India greatly the J'cnnoBRce War Governor—Had Charge of TVllKon Bill. WASHINGTON, July 0.—-Senator Jshara fi. Harris, of Tennessee, died at his home in Washington late yesterday ulternoon. Probably no man in pub- jic life had been identified with the history of this country as had Sen- ;itor Harris. He had almost completed his 70th year, having been born in February, 1818, and first became o member of congress in 1849. His congressional career thus began earlier than that of any member of either house, ante-dating Senators Mori-ill and Sherman by seven years, and Hon. Galusna A. Grow, now a member of the house .from Pennsylvania, by one y ear, .

It was expected that it would be introduced as an amendment to the tariff bill, but when presented to the finance committee that committee suggested the inadvisability of saddling the trust question upon the tariff, saying it would be preferable to have the two questions treated independently of each other.

PiiTsiJi-Kfi, Pa., July 1.1.—The situation of the miners' strike shows but little direct change. The principal, movement made by the strikers was the securing of a conference of the national leaders of the several powerful labor organizations of the country, with the purpose in view of devising ways and moans to assist those who are making what is considered by all of them i.he supreme effort for wage advancement. It is known that concerted action will be taken at once to make the suspension of mining in West Virginia complete, which move, if successful will kill oft 1 the most effective en a my the strikers have to encounter. It was this field that broke tl:e strike in 1894. and no effort will be spared to bring it into subjection at this time. FRANCE TO AID US. Her AinlmsHadorH to Help Us to Secure) Ulmetulllsiu. LOMJOX.

' ulistic, triple alliance In this state, have recently pledged themselves in their several platforms, are as abhorrent to every true democrat when advocated by populists under the name of democracy, as when taught by republican!! Democracy Is a necessary foe of each and we repudiate them as unworthy oi the support of every true democrat. 'Second—We hereby renew our fealty lo the cardinal principles of democracy, which were first enunciated by Jefferson in the dawn of the century, and which have been advocated by its great leaders from that time down lo 189$, and under which It has. achieved all its great victories. The largest freedom of the Individual consistent with good government, and , opposition to paternalism and to all class legislation. •Equal rights to all; special privileges [o none. The support of the federal government In all its departments In its full Eonstllutlonal vigor, and the preservation of the states in all their rights.

The honest payment of our debts, the (acred preservation of the national honor, and a sound and stable currency. Retrenchment and rigid economy la [he public expenditures. Third—We heartily endorse the plat- torm adopted by the national republl- ;ah party at Indianapolis in 1896, which states at length the foregoing fundamental principles of government. Fourth—We denounce the Dingley tariff bill soon to be enacted Into, law by a republican congress. Under the pretense of increasing the revenue it Is the old republican policy of protection to the few at the expense of the mafty, tt tends to create and foster trusts and monopolies, and we recognize in It the } CuKillnient of promised reward to trios* who supplied the party treasury. We renew our allegiance to the historic fiemocratic doctrine of a tariff for revenue only. Fifth—We insist upon the continued reform in the civil service, national, state and municipal until the spoils system is overthrown. Sixth—We favor a dignified, intelligent and firm foreign policy.
