DES MOINEP, Oct. 0.—The supreme court has decided the case of the eight Dubnque aldermen, who two years ago voted to increase their own salaries as members of the city council of Dubuque. The aldermen are held to be criminally liable for this action, and the decision of the trial court, which sustained a demurrer to the indictment against the defendants is reversed. The holding of the supreme court is based on that part of the city charter of Dubtique which says that no alderman shall vote on any question in which he is dire'ctly or indirectly interested. The Dubuque aldermen in .the year 1895, voted to raise their salaries from S300, which had been the the annual salary of aldermen for about ten years prior to April 24; 1895, to S')00.

CITV, Oct. 10. — The majority of the neighbors and friends of the Quade family think that whoever is responsible for the ruin of Mary, the eldest daughter, is the man who committed the murder of Fred Quade, for the purpose of shielding himself from a similar fate, which would have overtaken him, had Mr, Quade lived to learn the truth concerning his daughter, Mary still refuses to divulge the name of the author of her ruin. • - ; — — **• J.aylauilcr » Poor Shot.

Her daughter sustained bad injuries. At Ottumwa recently Star Pointer made ai mile in 2:01 #. Patchen made it in 2:04. They went against a wind, and Murphy says, considering conditions, it was the best work ever done bv Pointer. An enormous crowd witnessed the race. A "fire at Riverside a few nights since did damage to the extent of 512,000. It broke out about midnight in the butcher shop of SUobal & Palmer and when discovered was beyond control. It spread to Put/. & Co.'s drug store, the postoffice and mail matter, Bott & Butterbaugh's office, Charles Thoinann's residence and O. Lowell's barber shop. The insurance was light. By the explosion of a boiler in a feed mill on u farm twelve miles northeast of Lineville, a few days ago, Henry Rouns and .lames Dyball were so badly injured that they may die, and four others seriously hurt. A number of horses and cattle were badly scalded from the steam, and the entire building wrecked. The water becoming low in the boilsr, cold water was pumped in, whic'a caused the explosion. Appanoose county miners and operators held a joint conference in Centerville a few days ago and agreed upon a uniform winter scale for mining of 00 cents, and all will go to work. The miners and operators have been very successful in avoiding strikes, and all are in a prosperous condition. They say that they will let no outside parties influence them. More coal is being mined than for many years. At Des Moines recently a most disastrous fire and'one of the largest the residence portion of the city has ever known, broke out on the.l. R. Hurlbut premises, at I4.'M >Vest Ninth street. •Within an hour five of the most fashionable residences in that portion of the city, and as many barns and other property had been destroyed. The total loss is at least 830,000. It only by the greatest efforts of the firemen that the fire was prevented from making a clean sweep to the river, five blocks north, so great was the force of the wind- Time and time again the bouses north, east and west caught fire and it took the utmost vigilance to combat the cloud of dying embers. At Cedar Rapids recently Alfred Walton, a young man about.35 years old, while riding on an open street car leaned out too fa,r and was struck with an iron pole supporting the trolley wire, Hjs head was crushed and it in Jewed he cannot jiye, Des Moinesdispatch: Colonels Swalra, and. Stan too have resigned as regents of the .Sftate University, and tfce goy* ernor baj> appointed to succeed Slaughter jn » Battle Brazilian Troopi, Rio JAXEIKO, Oct. 11.—Late reports from Camidos place the number of persons killed in'battle there at 4,000. Reports also state that the fanatics now admit that Antonio Conselheiro, I their leader, was killed. Few details of the battle have been received, but there is no doubt that the fight was one of the largest in number of persons killed that ever occurred in Bra7.il. While there is a probability that the number of dead is less than now estimated, reports show that the battle was literally a slaughter of the fanatics, who were hemmed in on .all sides by the government troops, and, armed principally with knives and swords, were helpless under the steady fire of rifles of the soldiers. This one- sided fighting continued for several hours and at the end of that time hundreds of fanatics lay dead in heaps all over the ground which they had so long held from the government. The Brazilian order was to "annihilate the fanatics," aud it was obeyed to the best of the ability of her soldiers. Conselheiro, it is authoritatively stated, was killed ,as ho urged his forces on to the last stand for their lives. VICTORIOUS CUBANS. Heavy I,osse« Sustained by the Spanlnrdit In u Recent Fight. XKW YOKK, Oct. 8.—The Herald's Havana special says: A big battle occurred October 2, in Cameronc hills, not far from Mantanzas, between the Spanish under General Molina and the rebels nuder the command of Betan- conrt, Sanquilley and Raoull Arango. The Herald's correspondent in Man- tauzas obtained an account of the fight from a Spanish official who was pre sent. From this it appears that the rebel infantry ivas strongly entrenched in an almost inaccessible position in the hills, and all efforts to disiodge them were futile, resulting- only in heavy loss to the attacking forces. The insurgents had only a few men killed and jeered and taunted the Spanish during the whole engagement. It is announced that ai a result of the revival in trade, the San Francisco mint will at once resume the coinage of silver dollars in accordance with instructions received from Washington. Dispatches say that Edward Langtry, former husband of Lily Langtry, the actress, has been admitted into the insane asylum. His sudden breakdown is strange and unexplained. He has always enjoyed the best of health, was an ardent sportsman, lived a great deal out of doors and was temperate n his habits. The auditor of the posloffice department, has closed the books of the Dostal service for the fiscal year ending lune 30, last. The results, compared with the preceding year, show that the receipts increased S160,2r,4 for the rear: expenditures increased 53,470,745, while the deficit was increased S3,304,- 400. For 1S95, receipts were 582,005,402; expenditures, 894,097,042, and the deficit was 811,431,579. Rome dispatch: JTcws has been received from Benadir to the effect that the English-Cavendish sporting expedition, which loft Berbera, Kast Africa, last year, arriving at Lugh, Somaliland, about the middle of November, and thence proceeded for Lake Rudolph, lias been attacked by a band of Amharas, who murdered all the members of the expedition. The party consisted of two Englishmen and ninety Ascaris. Columbus, Ohio, dispatch: The lime within which state tickets must be qualified and presented to the secretary of state for insertion on the Australian ballot has closed. Eight tickets will be presented on this ballot to the voters of Ohio, viz.: Republican, democratic, regular prohibition, liberal prohibition, gold democratic, populist, negro protective and socialist. The last six are not likely to secure 00,000 votes altogether. The friends of Captain General Weyler made a grand rally in his behalf at Havana recently and did all they could possibly do to prevent his recall to Spain. At a meeting 1 at which many of the wealthier class of Spaniards were present resolutions indorsing General Weyler were adopted with great enthusiasm and a cable message was sent to the government of Madrid announcing 1 that the representatives of the trading, mercantile and industrial communities were satisfied with the course followed by Captain General Weylcr looking to au early and complete pacification of Cuba and expressing fear that his recall will delay the pacification. It was further agreed to organize si public demonstration in General Weyler's honor. A dispatch from Tncoma says: The VICTORIA OPPOSES HOME RULB nnttn Is Aga»n*t th* »ea*-e»t ffi»ft of tfifc Irish ileart. NEW Yor.K, Oct. 8.—A cablegram from London to the Evening Post says: No little talk has been aroused in political circles over passages in Lord Tennyson's biography, which nearly all the reviewers purposely or accidentally overlooked. The passages in letters between Lord Tennyson and the queen furnish the first direct evidence ot the queen's bitter and active hostility to the home rule policy of her constitutional advisers,^ and quite upset the notion thnt the queen has become the mere echo of her ministers' views. It is a well known fact 1 that the letters are now published by the deliberate wish of her majesty. This lends peculiar interest and importance to the disclosure, suggesting either her belief that Irish home rule is gone beyond recall, though Mr. John Merely has this week again nailed the home rule clause to the liberal mast, or else her fixed determination to withhold her acceptance of any such constitutional change. OUT. REBELS DRIVEN Guatemalan Town Again In the Iliiniig of Uurrios'g .Soldiers. GUATEMALA. Guatemuhi, Oct. 0.— The news of the evacuation of Quezal- tenanpo anil its rcoccupation by the government forces i.s fully confirmed. The consular corps there has sent the folio win pmessnge to President Barrios: "The city of Quezaltcnango was abandoned yesterday by the rebels, and we linvn notified General Garcia Leon. The city has been for some time without proper authorities, and all desiring the re-establishment of order and peace, respectfully beg you to give the necessary orders to that effect. Confiding in your well-known rectitude, Mr. President, we trust the occupation of Quczaltenango will be peaceful, for which all Quozaltenango prays and will bo grateful." MICHIGAN'S WHEAT CROP. Secretary of State KKtlmiites It to He •44.!)2r>,007 ISuslicls. LAXSIXC;, Mich., Oct. 9.—Michigan's wheat crop this year will amount to 24.925,007 bushels, or an average of 10.40 bushels :iu acre. This statement was given out by the secretary of state, and is based on the results of the threshings from 150.000 acres, ISO,000 of which are in the section where three-fourths of the crop is raised. The extreme drought renders it probable that much of the wheat sown thus far this full will not grow, the drought being greater than that of any previous year. It is estimated that outs will yield 25.79 bushels, barley 21.18 bushels, and corn 04 bushels an acre, while potatoes will be 01 per cent, beans SO per cent, winter apples 18 per cent, and late peaches 12 per ceut.

Sixty villages near Tung Chou, containing over 80,000 inhabitants, have been destroyed by floods and the people either drowned or forced to flee. No means of finding out how mnny thousands have been drowned, but ihe number is estimated by Chinese authorities at 15,000 to 20,000. The flooded district is within twelve miles of Pekin, the capital of China. As :i rale, Chinese oflicials make very little stir when a calamity like this happens-, but the proximity of the disaster has resulted in its being brought to the attention of the emperor, who has ordered that all possible relief be given. Yokohama papers received at Tacoma contain full accounts of a severe storm which passed over the country on September 4, and reports of great havoc are coming in from all quarters. At the latest date 370 houses were totally destroyed in Tokio, 7,7:.'S partially damaged and 14,043 submerged.

In well informed English circles, adds the correspondent, it is not believed Salisbury's government will dare override on this question the decision of the Indian government. Wolcott's mission must thus be considered abortive. llimelnllism Soon to lie .Settled. LONDON, Oct. n.—The British government's answer to tho proposals o£ the United States and France foi- bimetallism by international agreement will probably be ready within a fortnight.
