[Price: 15 Cents pee Week. THE SITUATION AT DES HOINES UNCHANGED. STILL A Gum-ral Review of the Situation — Ab out the Hotel Corridors—Democratic Discourtesy -General State Happenings. Des Moines, Jan. 23.—This morning tho general expectation among the re publican members was for a rather quiet session this morning. They had nothing new to present after what they had done yesterday, and their committee wanted a rest after the work it had been doing so constantly every night for the past week Tao members had a little more time at their disposal with the session beginning at 10:30, so the regular morning caucus was held half an hour later than usual. Visitors began to come in by 9:30, but they were not very numerous until the hour for opening. Many expressed them as greatly disappointed at not bung present at yesterday’s sission, and said:    “it's just my luck when I stay away for them to have an interesting session In democratic circles it is hard to get any acknowledgement that anything of importance was discolsed yesterday. Th«y seem pleased to say that Blythe and Chase acted very foolishly and that the democratic members did not understand the full import of the questions propounded to them from the republican side; that, the admission was of no import juice and could apply only to the organization. They deny absolutely that they had any such scheme on hand as the republicans charged them with If such is the case tho thing for tne republicans to do is to fasten every one of them right down in a written agreement nottc move in the matter, aa was done with Hotchkiss. If that is done then there can ba some basis for a compromise, but so long as the way is left open for any democratic official to unseat or render ineffectual the membership of any one of the men from the sixteen disputed districts, ,just so long will the republicans resist any attempt to organize the house on a compromise basis. 'They cannot afford to risk so many members This morning Smith, of Mitchell, appeared in the houpe for the first time in about a week He has just recovered from an attack of la grippe and is still weak and unable to do much, He is ready and anxious to do his part in helping I: organize the bouse on a republican basis. The pairs this morning were rearranged in consequence of the return of members They were as follows: Gardner, of Washingtri, with Horten; Harper with Russell. Soeshe with Chamberlain, Steele with Johnson, of Brewer; Tode with Holbrook, Walden with Smith, of Wapello; Smith, of Mitchell, with Deem; Potter with McFarland The number of votes cast on the first bedot was 86, of which Wilson received 43 and Lehman 43 Appearances seem to indicate that the independents are solidifying and that the power of Jim Weaver in the sixth district is being manifested. But great hopes are entertained of ultimate republican success, from the fact that the democratic side of the house is straining every nerve and working its hardest to keep the members in line. They are putting on their boldest front now, and as it is usual for an army to make the greatest show of strength just before defeat it is likely such a breaft may be looked for ere long from the opposition. The re pub1 ic an position has always been the same, to hold out till the last, and there is no chance whatever of a member going ovet to tho enemy. That the democrat^ are very anxious is shown by the fact that they have constantly on hand on the fioor of the house some of the most prominent demooraiic politicise of the state, such as J. J. Dunn, chairman the state central committee; Ed limn ing to them, bringing out charges to which they could not reply, they tried to silence him with groans, hisses and yells But Blythe stood his ground firm ly and would not sit down until he had finished, although the entire democratic host and their sympathizers in the gaiter ies were yelling for him to “sit down.” Before the discussion had reached its conclusion, while a republican member had the door, the democratic side even had the effrontery to call for the “regular order.” Later, when Mr. Hotchkiss, a democrat, bad paused in his remarks, Mr. Blythe thinking the gentleman had ceased, called for a “roll call,” but on learning that the gentleman had not said all he wished to, Blythe stated that he did not wish a roll call until the gentle man had concluded his remarks, which seemed to have been the case when the call was made. The republicans gained friends while the democrats lost. BOTH DESIR* A SETTLEMENT The Up IM* Republicans May Give Temporary Speaker. Special to Thb Havk-Bti. Des Moines, Jan. 23.—The interesting situation around the hotels this evening holds its own. Rumors are current that the democrats will agree to the roll as prepared by the secretary of state Republicans and democrats both express a desire this evening of solving the diffi culty yet neither side show any signs of weakness. One thing seems certain, that Lehman will not be clerk. The republi cans are considering giving the democrats temporary speaker but no determined action has been taken yet. IN TEK SENATE. Greetings Sent to Senator McCoy at Oakaioosa. Special to Thu Hawk Era. Des Moines, Jan. 23.—In the senate this afternoon the first thing was a resolution instructing the secretary of state to furnish covers and files for the file clerk. Senator Price provoked considerable merriment by calling for the enforcement of the smoking rule in the senate chamber. According to its provisions smoking is absolutely prohibited, and the ruling of the chair was that any employe caught in the act would subject himself to discharge, and any senator who desired to smoke in session or out would have to go to the cloak room. After adjournment Rayless lit a cigar and the sergeant at-arms was at his side at once to conduct him out. The cigar went instead, and henceforth smoking will be abolished in the senate chamber. The following greeting was sent this afternoon to Senator McCoy, who is at home at Oskaloosa sick: Des Moines, Jan. 23.—Hon. Ben McCoy, Oskaloosa, Iowa—Dear Senator: In common with your other friends in the senate, and this includes the entire roll of senators and officers, we rejoice to learn of your continued improvement in health and hope speedily to hear that your recovery is complete and your genial presence be again enjoyed by us. With heartiest regards, P. G. Ballingall, B. II Vale. D. B. Davidson. George W Perkins, Ed P. Seeds, F. D. Bay ess, J. A. T. Hub, Edgar E. Mack, Wm. G. Kent, Thos. Weidman, A B.

Nannie Stull, enrolling cftrk the house. Des Moines, Jan. 23.—After the announcement of pairs in the house the roll call on clerk was at once taken up. Both parties had come out of caucus with nothing in the way of a special program, so roll calls were the only thing heard from beginning to end, interrupted occasionally by calls for order. The vote this morning for nine ballots stood 42 for Wilcox and 42 for Lehman. Up to adjournment eighty-seven ballots in all were taken. INGALLS ON T SYNOPSIS OF HIS SPEECH IN SENATE ON BUTLERS BILL.

OI for and others, and they are in cane taut consultation with members aud others, keeping close watch over everything that happens. Of course republican pol liticians are present, but they do not manifest the anxiety or watchful care so apparent in derm cratic circles. This morning while the roll was being callod for pairs Mr. McDarmid was rather inattentive. His name was called several times, and he finally woke up and gave his usual answer to roll call on Clerk “Lohman,” instesd of simply answering here. A very loud smile went all over the house When the parties came out of caucus this morning the members announced that neither was going to do anything in the way of furnishing a special program for the entertainment of the public The galleries and lobby were full, and a more disappointed crowd wa9 never seen ss the roil calls proceeded monotonously on to the close. Work began with the seventy eighth ballot and it went on with out interruption or change until adjournment was taken The last ballot was the eighty-seventh and like all the rest was a tie. The house after the eigth seventh ballot adjourned till 10:80 to morrow morning. Two more pairs were .made. Smith of Wapello with Van Gilder, aud Smith of Des Moines with Holiday, both pairs to cast until all should be present. The republicans intend to rest a while for the present. They have thus far brought out only a few of their leading speakers and have an excellent reserve force which they will bring out in good time Not all the democratic forces have been shown as yet, and it is safe to say when the republicans bring out a new orator or debater the democrats will not be far behind When the republican committee gets rested up again it will renew the attack upon the democratic forces Some of the members, in fact the majority, are not in favor of constant turmoil, so intervals of quiet will intervene between the storms of partisan debate. A Little Boy Wail* Flavins With a Plato! KUI Himself. Fairfield, Jan. 23 —A shocking accident is reported from Four Corners which resulted fatally. Some children were playing together at the house of John Cosenquist in an up-stairs *oom All came down stairs when summoned but one, a young lad named Elmer N. Hol-qui t. Twenty minutes later, when he was again called, he made no response, and a search revealed the fact that he was then in a dying condition with a pistol ball in his brain. He had found an old revolver which had been secured in the room and availed himself of the opportunity to examine it. In some manner he had discharged the weapon and inflicted a fatal wound, the ball entering the forehead about two inches above the left eye. The poor child lived but a short time after he was found. Killed Their First Man. Special to THI Hawk-Bti. Hillsdale, Jan. 23.—The Tabor and Northern railroad killed their first man yesterday. John Marshal, who was acting as the brakeman, in making a coupling had the upper part of his head caught and mashed, killing him instant ly. The car which he was coupling on the engine had no draw bar or dead wood and had to be fastened on by chains. The location was on a sharp curve thus bringing the car and engine very close together and in some way not as yet explained he went in and was caught. DEMOCRATIC DISCOURTESY. A Sad Death. Special to TU Hawk-Bti. Kossuth, la., Jan. 23 —Our community is saddened to day by the unex peeled death of one of our best young business men. William V. Bridges died this morning at the residence of hi? father, John Bridges, after an illness of ten days of lung fever following an at tack of influenza. His age was about twenty-five. He had disposed of his interests here and was preparing to go to Colorado when taken sick. The funeral will be from his late home Fri day at eleven o’clock. Republican Speakers Greeted Wltk Yells aid Hleeee. Special to Tu Ha wk-Et*. Des Moines, Jan. 23 —During the session yesterday, it was a matter of surprise and regret to see the discourtesy manifested on the democratic side of the house. It has always been the custom that if any member, while another is speaking, desires information from the speaker on the subject in hand to rise in his place and request the privilege of asking the gentleman a question. When time for debate is unlimited this request has always been granted, but yesterday, upon the democratic side, all custom, all precedent of that nature were set aside. While Mr. Holbrook, the acknowledged leader of democracy, occupied the floor, Mr. Blythe rose to ask him a question, but was sharply shutoff with, “Don’t interrupt me. Perhaps after I have finished you will not want to ask the question.” Afterwards, when Richman was addressing the house, Mr. Blythe was shut off in the same manner by the remark, “I will not be interrupted. You can ask whatever you please after I have finished.” As opposed to this procedure, consider the action of the republican aide. Every time a democrat desired to ask a question he was readily granted the privilege. Anotheiyway in which democratic discourtesy was shown was In their efforts to prevent republican members While Blythe wa$ talk* Biskop Hewn***? Upkold. Dubuque, Jan. 28.—Judge Ney yester day rendered a decision in the famous case of Father Jean vs. Bishop Hennessy of this Catholic diocese. Father Jean was silenced a few years ago by the bishop for disobedience. His suit was to recover ilOO.OOO damages against the bishop. Judge Ney decided that the bishop acted within his ecclesiastical au thority in deposing the priest and that the case wss one a civil court could no review, belonging solely to ecdesiasti authority. The plaintiff win appeal. A fin at Et. Ploaoaat. Special to Tot Hawk-Eyk. Mt. Pleasant, la., Jsn. 23.-—Our city was startled last evening about half-past eight by the cry of fire. The fire was found to be among the buildings of the Western Wheel Scraper company, our largest manufacturing industry. After a time, by the use of our splendid system of water works, the fire fiend was under blacksmith shops and one Washington, D. C., Jan. 28.—Tile senate galleries were packed this morning in anticipation of a speech by Mr. Ingalls. The senator presented the credentials of the two democratic senators from Montana and moved that both sets of senators from that state be entitled to the privileges of the floor. It was objected to and the matter went over. The crowd, which began to gather at ten o’clock in anticipation of Inga I’s speech, continued to grow until the galleries were packed and the people found themselves unable to gain admission. Even then they refused to depart, and filled the corridors surrounding tne galleries and waited for the beginning of the speech. Mr. Ingalls said. Mr. President: The race to which we belong is the most arrogant and rapa cious, the most exclusive and indomita ble. in history. Ours is the conquering and unquestionable race through which alone man has taken possession of the physical and moral world To our race humanity is indebted for religion for literature, for civilization. It has genius for conquests, for politics, for jurisprudence and for administration. AU other races have been its enemies and its victims This is not the time, nor is it the occasion to consider profoundly the Interesting question of the unity of races. It is sufficient to say that either by instinct or design, the Caucasian raca at every step of its progress from barbarism to enligntenment has refused to mingle its blood or to connect with the,two other great human families (Mongolian and African) and has persistently rejected adulteration under the shield of the American government. He said every faith had found its shelter, every creed a sanctuary, and every wrong are-dress. He quoted from John Bright’s sreech, during the civil war, in which B'ight said “I see another and brighter vision before my gaze. I see one vast confederation stretching from the frozen north to the glowing south and from the Atlantic to the Pacific, and I see one people, one language, one law and one faith; and all over that wide continent, the home of freedom and refuge for the oppressed of every race and every clime.” Ingalls proceeded, “On the threshold of our second century we are confronted with the most formidable and pertentoua problem ever submitted to a free people for solution. Complex and unprecedented; involving social, moral and political considerations, par'y supremacy, and in the estimation of many its solution will de mand all the resources and statesmanship of the present and future to prevent the crisis that may become a catastrophe. It should be approached with candor, with solemnity, with patriotic purpose, with fearless society, without subterfuge and without reserve. Let me state it in the language of one of the most brilliant and most impassioned and powerful of all orators of the south—Henry W Grady—now, unfortunately, no more.” Ingalls thereupon sent to the clerk’s desk and had road an extract from Grady a oration before the Boston chamber commerce and then went on to say, “The problem is still further complicated by the fact that they (the negroes) are gregarious, they instinctively put themselves into their own    communities withtheir own habits,    who own customs, their own methods of life. The line of cleavage between the whites and blacks is becoming constantly more distinct. Politically, they are affiliated with the victors in the late aivil war. Fred Douglas,    the most illustrious living representative of the negro race, once said to me, he thought, as prejudice and social and political antagonism disappeared the races would blend, coalesce and become homogeneous. I do not agree with him Such a solution, in my judgment, would perpetuate the vices of both races and the virtues of neither.” After praising the colored people for their fidelity to the south during the war, he said:    “It seems increditable that gratitude should not have defended and shielded them from the hideous and indescribable wrongs and crimes of which they have been for a quarter of a century the guiltless and unresisting victims.” Ingalls went on to speak of the deter ruination of the south to eliminate the negro as a factor from its political and social history, and quoted evidence on that point from democratic news papers and democratic politicians He particularly instanced the recent Jackson, Mississippi, election and quoted the statement that the election at Jackson was the most outragous ever seen. The town had been taken possession of by ‘crowds with rifles.” It was said that Senator George’s son was one of the riflemen. Resuming, Ingalls said, the pretexts for this condition of things all rest upon the fear of negro supremacy. To this nullification of the constitution the people of the north have apparently consented. The south is standing upon a volcano. The south is sitting on a safety-valve. Already mutter ings of discontent by hostile organizations are heard. The use of daggers is advised I deplore it, but as God is my judge, I say no other people on the face of the earth has ever submitted to the wrongs and injustice which have been for twenty-five years put upon the colored men of the south without revolution and without blood Ingalls went on to warn the south of the natural consequences of its course toward the colored people. Despotism makes the nihilist. Ingalls then spoke of an outrage committed in Aberdeen, Missis Sippi, on the day of Jeff. Davis’ funeral, when Turner, of Indiana, accidentally in the course of his work, let fall from the house roof a cable which had been stretched across the street bearing an effigy of the secretary of war, with the inscription, “Red Proctor, Traitor For this accident Turner has been brutally whipped by one McDonald, with a coach whip of the largest size, re ceiling at least two hundred lashes, anc being nearly blinded and terribly lacer ated. McDonald was jfiaed t30 The citizens immediately subscribe!: twice the amount to discharge ie fine anc paid for the broken whip and bought railroad ticket for the victim and sent him out of town. If an outrage like that had been in Acted on an American citizen in England, France, Spain, or anywhere on the face of the earth and there bac not been an instantaneous diesvowa of reparation. A million men in this country would have sprung to arms to avenge the outrage and wrong. But the outrage was inflicted in Mississippi anc try the experiment of justice. Stack your guns. open your ballot boxes, register your votes, black and white, and if after the experiment has been fairly and honestly tried it appears that the African race to incapable of civilization. If it appear? that the complexion burnt upon him by the sun is iccompata-ble with freedom. I will pledge myself to consult with you about some measure for the solution of the race problem. But until then nothing can be done. The citizenship cf the negroes must be abolished and recognized. His right to vote must be admitted and the ballots must be honestly counted. These are essential preliminaries and conditions precedent to any consideration of altering the fundamental ru’es of race supremacy or "ace equality rn the United States North or south, those who freed the slaves ask nothing more. They wiil be content with nothing less. The expe*iment must be fairly tried; this is the starting point and this i^ the goal The longer it is deferred, the greater will be the exasperation and more doubtful the final result. At the conclusion of Ingalls’ address the senate adjourned till Monday. THE HOUSE. ria* Blee- Committee on Co si tee ted ti os* Mea es rn. Report. Washington. Jan. 23 —A resolution was adopted calling on the secretary of war for information as to the present condition of the government works at the Rock Island arsenal, and asking for an ’pinion as to the desirability of utilizing the works for a gun factory. Tne report of the committee on elections in the contested election case of Smith against Jackson, from the fourth istrict of West Virginia, was submitted and recommitted. It declares the conte? ant elected and entitled to the cer-■ficate. The minority was granted leave j file a minority report. The house then went into a committee f he whole on the customs administrative bill. After several minor amendments were adopted, Bayne (acting under instructions from the committee on ways and means) offered an amendment to section fifteen, providing that during the pending con troversy or litigation about duties, merchandise shall remain in the government warehouse and under the control of the secretary of the treasury. Pending further action the committee rose aud the house adjourned. TH* WODLD’8 FAIR. X wo Of NELLIE ELY’S FLY. IHE 6L0BE-CIBCLINB HEB01NE PASSES; THHOOSH FT. MADISON IHS MORNING Her Celebrated Trip Around the World to Beat the Time of Verne’s Phineas Fogg—A Description of Her Journey — Miss Bis la od. Propiiiittiuiia Submitted to Worlflr* Fair Committee. Washington, Jan. 23—The house committee on the world’s fair to day discussed the subject and referred to a sub committee already appointed two propitious, one presented by Mr. Frank, of Missouri, providing for the commemoration of the celebration of the landing of C dumb as in 1892 and a fair the following yea ; and another by Mr. Springer, of Illinois, proposing that the house pro teed to select a site for the fair by a bal lot next Monday. The sub-committee which consisted of Chairman Chandler, and Messrs. Flower and Hitt was in creased bv the addition of Messrs. Wilson, West Virginia, and Frank, Missouri. The session was a lively one. The Chicago men declared they would not support any plan that would rule out Washington from the competition by dealing with the financial question before fixing the site for the fair. This b“ought forth Frank’s resolution mentioned above. This proposition embodied all that was objectionable to the Chicago representatives. They said it shewed St. Louis could not take care of the fair in 1892, and that these delays boded entire failure to all efforts to hold the fair. Mr. Springer charged that tho New Y'o?k people were instrumental in delaying the action. He said they were waiting upon the legislature at Albany to pass a bill appropriating $10 000,000 for the improvement of New York parks and the erection therein of buildings which were to be entered rent free to the government for the use of a fair. With his club the New York adherents were to go into the house and try to crush their competitors by asserting that with this state aid and a five or six million dollar guarantee fund they wanted no government aid for the fair. Mr. Flower did not see the impropriety waiting to hear from the Albany leg islature and Frank spoke of the vast reparation necessary which could not be completed before 1893. Finally Springer introduced his reso-tion, that Monday next be set apart in the house for the debate on the question the most appropriate plan for of he    location of    the    fair hat    on Tuesday    the    house to proceed to ballot for the Vhen the place was decided tho house should select the perpetrators go “ The race ‘unwhipped 0 control- The dibokuuui ^ aim one I    The race antagonism applied of the main buildings wei* consumed.

Madison, Jan. 24.—Much enthusiasm was felt by our people when the announcement was made that Nellie Bly, the New York World’s globe-circliDg correspondent, would pass through this city on the Santa Fe route. A special train left here this morning to meet Miss Bly at Kansas City. The train left there U6 p. m., having on board its fair burden, and swiftly made the trip to this city through which the special train passed at two o’clock this morning. The contract of the Smta Fe officials was to place Miss Bly in Chicago at noon to-day in time for the Pennsylvania limited. The train dispatchers had orders to give the special a clear road regardless of everything and it is expected that the trip, barring accidents, will ba one of the fastest on record. The story of Miss Bly's trip around the world when written out will ba one of deep interest. She made her remarkable tour with no other baggage than a small hand satchel. She left New York with but one gown, and that on her back. In the sache! were necessary changes of clothing, five copies of the New York World of mat day, and £500 in Bank of England notes, besides her railroad and steamer tickets for the entire journey. She sailed from New York, November 14; went by rail from London, and then across the English channel from Dover to Calais, going from there to Amiens to see Jules Verne. She came back to Calais and caught the regular Indian mail train through France and Italy to Brindisi on the heel of the boot of Italy. Thence she sailed across the Mediterranean eea to Port Said, at the mouth of the Suez canal. From there she sailed through the canal and down the Red sea to Aden on the Arabian coast, and thence through the Gulf of Aden and across the Indian ocean to Colombo, Ceylon, From Colombo she went across the Sea of Bengal to Singapore on the Malay peninsula, and from there through the China sea to Bong Kong on the Chinese coast; from Hong Kong through the Formosa channel to Yokohama, on the eastern side of Japan, and thence directly across the Pacific to San Francisco. She arrived at Calais in ample time to take the Brindisi mail train. This train, commonly called the Indian mail, is one of th*1 famous trains of the world. She arrival at Brindisi on time and took the steamer Victoria of the Peninsular and Oriental line from tnat point. She left Brindisi the morning of November 25, crossed the Mediterranean, and sailed through the Suez canal, arriving at Is-maila November 27. From Ismaila her journey lay through the Red sea. Across the Arabian Sea the Victoria sped with its plucky little passenger, and arrived at Colombo, on the Island of Ceylon, December 8. Here the World’s globe-girder left the Victoria to take another steamer for Song Kong. She was two days ahead of her itinerary, but was obliged to spend these two days in Ceylon. December 18 Nellie Blv, after passing through the straits of Malacca, was at Singapore, half-way round the world. Her eight days’ ride through the Indian ocean carried her over the ruins of cities buried for long centuries beneath its tossing floods. She remained in th8 P. and O. steamer, which stopped at Singapore only long enough to permit the mails and its cargo to be handled, and December 24; Christmas eve, reached Bong Hong, on the southwest coast of China She had her Christmas dinner in the Chinese city. The first available means of transportation across the Pacific ocean was the fast steamer Oceanic, of the Occidental and Oriental line. The steamer was scheduled to leave Hong Kong for San Francisco Dec. 28, and that day Nellie Bly bade adieu to the Celestial empire Five days later she wa9 in Yokohama, Japan, where she arrived Jan. 2 The Oceanic carries Chinese and Japanese mails to the United States. It had to wait until Jan. 7 at Yokohama for the mail. This made another five days de lay. At daylight Tuesday the Oceanic arrived in San Francisco. MISS BISLAND’8 JOURNEY Miss Belaud, of the C ismopoiitan. who is attempting a similar feat to that of Miss Bly, traveHug in the opposite direction, left New York November 14 on the New York Central and went by that road and the Lake Shore to Chicago. There she took the Northwestern to Omaha and thence across by the Union and Central Pacific roads to San Francisco. From San Francisco she simply reversed the trip of Nellie Bly, going to Yokohama, Bong Kong, Singapore, Colombo, Aden, Port Said, and Brindisi. From Brindisi she took the Indian mail train to Cabas and crossed to Dover. Then she went to London by train and crossed England to Hollyhead, took the ferry across the Irish sea to Dublin, caught the Bothnia, which is a slow boat, all the fast boats being taken off for the winter, at Queenstown, and sailed for New York, which place she cannot reach before Tuesday. Miss Bly is due in New York Saturday. by a standing vote, msny of the ladies waving their handkerchiefs. WHITTIER 8 LETTER. During the session a letter was read from John G Whittier, in which he said in part, “I have always regretted the action of the Women’s Christian Temperance Union in taking a partisan position. I dou’t by any means impeach the motive of the noble and devoted women of that organization, but I have seen no good acce mplished by their separate political action I hope the non-partisan temperance workers will not waste time and strength in combating tne political organizations, but go forward in their own way which I think is the best way and so far as I can see the only one likely to accomplish the great object of the temperance effort.” WAS to AlUHKfeCODRT FARMER IHAS SEES iMiSSIHB SINCE THE HIH INST. be in receipt of a message from tho spirit wor d stating that the bniv of inc missing Warsaw farmer, Trout wetter, would be found in the Mississippi and he word of searching the river has bcen ommenced, operations be:ng conducted from the I.liuois side.

Jan. £3 —Theodore Troutfetter. a well to-do farmer residing near Warsaw located about five miles below this place, has been missing since the 14th of this month. He came to Warsaw on that day with a load of wheat and, having disposed cf the same, left his team hitched to a rack in the streets of Warsaw and then disapeared. It wa? generally thought that he had gone to Keokuk, but a vigorous search of that city failed to reveal his whereabouts. The family, becoming alarmed, offered rewards and have had searching parties out since the unsortunate man disappeared. It is now believed that Trjut fetter, if not a suicide from insanity, has been the victim of foul play. Yesterday several of Troulfetter’s neighbors came to this place in company with a young boy who is said to have known the missing man intimately. Tne boy was placed under mesmeric influences by a local expert in that business, and is said while in this condition to have re lated a remarkable story to the effect that he saw Troll’fetter leave Warsaw on the afternoon in question in a wagon in company with two or three other men. He described their passing through the thick timbered road between Warsaw and Hamilton, and saw them pass through Hamilton and go upon the dyke that leads to the Hamil ton entrance of the bridge. At this point in the young man’s story he be came much excued, exclaiming that blood could be found upon tho ap proaches to the bridge, and that Trout fetter's body lay in the river. Men b°gan to drag the sloughs and river on th** Illinois shore early yesterday afternoon, but up to a late hour to night have found no traces of the missing Troutfetter. It is said that evidences of what seem to ba human blood were this evening discovered on some rocks near the bridge, which report seems t heighten the idea in some minds that Troutfetter has been murdered. There is considerable excitement over theaffai and it is hoped that the ugiy mystery will be solved in a shot t time Hamd ton s citizens are too sensible to believe in any sort of spiritual manifestation Murder will out—if it is murder—and the sea will cast up its dead if it be suicide BURIED AT LOW I WKLVK« FRO JA ALEXIS I lX OI s.

A SK KLEI ON IN A TRUNK. The Dlecoverv of Human Bone* Startles a Carpenter. New York, Jan, 23.—A carpenter while at work Monday in a house at No. 253 West Twenty-eighth street, had occasion to move a trunk in an unoccupied attic room. As the trunk was not locked he raised the lid to see what it contained To his horror the bleached bones of a human skeleton were disclosed. With visions of murder in his mind he ran hastily out of the house and informed Policeman Churchill, of the Twentieth street police station, who arrested Henry Jones, the colored janitor of the house. Jones saiji the bones belonged to a medical student, whose name and address he gave to the police. He said I hat several months ago the young man had asked him to boil the bones, as they were to be mounted. The police decided to hold the janitor for the action of the Coroner and removed the bones to the Morgue They refused to give the medical student’s name, as they wish to arrest him for a violation of the Health Board regulations.

In Untitaal Seem* In I h!e«»o-Und»r lexer* Hee.'.asg More Than They Can Do. Chicago, Jan. 23.—A midnight funeral ie a queer sight. Shortly before that dismal hour last Sunday night a long line of carriages trailed through the mud and mist of Madison street. The plate-glass sides of the sable-trimmed hearse flashed back the struggling gleams of the electric lights and the dull rumble of the vehicle sent a shiver through the people who faced the fog and chill of the night. A dozen carriages followed the black transport of the Head. Weeping women in m Aiming veils and relatives and friends of the dead with bowed heads were seen as the carriages passed beneath an electric lamp. The body had evidently arrived by a late train and the last rites of the dead were being performed in the darkness of the night. It was a gloomy, sorrowful procession — the weather, the hour, the grief, the pall-all midnight blackness—not a ray of light. The large increase in deaths in the last two or three weeks has taxed the facilities of the undertakers Home of them have had to turn aw&y orders. The high death rate among g’own people has made it necessary to refuse orders for hearses for children, and nearly all the dead little ones are carried to the grave in carriages The undertakers say they have not had so much to do for several years, though every warm winter like the present results in a heavy mortality. At the Cathedral of the Holy Name, Sunday forenoon. a funeral train had just left the chapel a second was in waiting, and a third approaching.___ VV Burdett* Replies to Subeertber. Ed Hawk Eye. The following communication appeared in your issue this morning: Ed Hawk Eye: A few days ago I noticed in your columns a complaint that .be electric lights on South Hill were not doing service, and the following day ■in excuse appeared saying “that a screw must have been loose ” Now, I suppose that settled the matter. But what I would like to get at is why all of said lights are put out an nuur to two before the moon is due and the city is left in darkness, as has been the case the past three or four nights. The city pays fur light and why can't we have light Subscriber. In reply permit me to say through your columns that there was a screw loose. On the night in question (Jan. 14th) when our plant was started we could get no current out of the station. Testing our circuits we found the break was on the South Hill or large loop of tile municipal circuit. We cut that loop nit, run the North Hill lamps and spent the night and part of the next day searching for the fault. Oa the extreme m*er verge of our very long circuit, at Summer and Barret streets, a set screw had been loosened in a lamp releasing a wire and b.eating our circuit. More than forty lamps lost the run and we their earnings How did the screw get loosened? We have not been able to learn It was not lco-e the pievious night. It was not loose during the day. The lamp trimmer visited tho lamp during the day and left tho lamp and circuit in order. Between the time he left it and the time to start the screw got loose. How? That is what we want to know. But Subscriber wants to know “why all of said lights are put out an hour or two before the moon is due and the city left in darkness, as has been the case the past three or four nights.” Hubscriber is inclined to exaggerate. When be wrote his communication the fault bad occurred but two night? and not three or four. It resulted from the following combination of circumstances: The gas company hired our superintendent. Lie left on three days notice. This leaves us short one man and is temporarily an in convenience. Last Saturday the fireman was laid aside with influenza and is not yet fit for duty. We have had to put untried help in his place at the furnaces. On Monday evening our steam engineer received a painful injury to his eye and was obliged to retire after the run hail commenced. This left no alternative but for the acting superi ntendent to take his place in the station. This left us short two men and made it impossible to re-trim our lights and we were forced to cut the run a little short in the morning. Last night our acting superintendent wa?, laid ai iie by overwork, but we hope he will be on his feet to day. Finally Subscriber says:    “The city pays for light, and why can’t we have light?” If the inference was correct it would be important. But it is not correct.
