ANOTHER SENSATION I JuineH BoiiklnH ArrcHted r(;iii|; Motoa while l*luylii|;aH Ilnnkurs. The pursuit of the fire bugs 1ms been prosecuted steadily ever since iLiZ pn^�JS*^ 1� "^^^^'"y Revere Housed and the burning of Plymouth mills Detectives have had the matter in hand and have gathered day by day the threads of guilt which seem to lead unmistakably to the controling instigator of the outrage which destroyed one j1- ^^i.�^t Iniportant industries and ifttiea to wipe out much other valuable property. The bottom is now out, and in due time every accomplice in the dastardly midnight work will come to an account... The information Hied by F. \V. Bums and G. W. Wilson with Justice Ailiae i\re published below and indicate that the matter is now in the hands of ^en who haye no com-irtomises to make, and who will give this community the service necessary to protect it against the basest of crimes. State of Iowa vs. James Hopkins. The defendant James Hopkins is accused of the crime of arson, committed as follows: For that on or about the 18th day of August, A. D. 1884. in the night time, in tlie township of America, inTlymouth county, Iowa, did unlawfully, willfully, maliciously and feloniously set Dre to and burn the inliabited building, to-wit: The lintel known as the Revere House, occupied by A. Brown, and owned by G. W. AVilson and A. Manahan, situated on lots 1,2 and 3, in sub-division of lots 1 and 2, in block 12, of the town of LeMars, in said township, county and state, that the said James Hopkins did set lire to said building as aforesaid, with the intent then and there to burn said building. That by reason of the premises a portion of said hotel was destroyed by said fire,contrary to the statute in such cases made and provided, and against the peace and dignity of the state of Iowa. G.W. Wilson. Subscribed and sworn to before me, this 14th day of February, A. D. 1885, by the said G. W. Wilson. A. A. Alline, Justice of the Peace. The other two charges are similar to the above except that in one July 2oth, 1884, is substituted for the lirst attempt to burn the Revere House, also signed by G. W. Wilson, while the other is signed by Frank W. Burns and charges Hopkins with setting fire to the Plym-outu Roller-Mills, on the night of June 22,1884. Sheriff Haerling went to Cherokee yesterday to arrest Mr. Hopkins. At that place the sheriff learned that he was going home by first train. On this account the arrest was not made until this morning, which saved tlie oflicer the extra expense home and the keeping of the prisoner over night. Quite a sensatioij prevailed when the word passed rapidly through the city following the arrest. The attorneys for the prosecution are Messrs. Struble, Rishel & Sartori, of this city, and Messrs. Clark & Erwin, of Fort Dodge. The defense is of course Messrs. Argo, Kelly & Augir. The senior member of this firm will now have enough to do to defend his political associate without manipulating the coming city election. The attorneys for the prosecution have in hand not only the task of weaving the network of evidence around the fire bugs, but also that of applying the law to the bank wreckers for all there is in it. Mr. Erwin, of Fort I)odge,iia8 filed the following information witli Justice Alline and the parties named are now busily hunting bondm the sum of $4,000, or $1,000 n each e^wge. tonkins f furnish $3,500 and Kelley $500. They waive examllation asd the cases go the grand jury. State of Iowa vs. James Hopkins and Se above-named defendants are accused of the crime of forBory, committed as follows: For that the said James Hopkins and Matt B. Kelley did, on or about the 10th day of September, A.

LeMaiis, Feu. 14,1885. A Kularn .Shot. The Sentinel has nothing personaljl against tlie (ilobe folks. In the line ofil Its duty to the public, it is simply^ pushing its contemporary to define Itsi position as the apologist and champioitl of bummerisra and worse, or the advocate of honesty in office and decency in public. When that paper professed to unload Hopkins and Kelley to save its life, it did only a selfish act, and was not entitled, to credit. If it does not still retain in its proprietorship professional gamblers and ballot box conspirators and is not inspired by this e ement let it drop that championship, and advocate better things. In its last issue it says: "Now Mr. SENTiNEt, shall wo hav-o a fair and candid dlsuuaslon o� our dlirerciices or shall we have a peieonal warfare? Wo prefer tho foriiior, but if compelled to cuter into the light we Bhull bo tho liiat to leave It. Wo know ynui vulnerable polutfl, and If we meet wdl dieaoct them, if you and your proniiiters compel us to resort to this knul of Jounuallsm to defend ourselves and friends from your cowardly and anonymous assaults." We have heard that kind of threats and attempts at bluffing for years. Kernan howled it, and Buck repealed the dismal refrain, and now their sickly imitators take up the echo. The gang has repeatedly sent special commissioners to notify us in a confidential way, that a detective was running down the pathway of our life with the thirst of a bloodhound seeking for "vulnerable points," and that we iiad better stand from under, it is our pleasure and our pride to declare that tho record is an open book, and the character a bulwark tht.t has ever challenged assault. So if the Globe desires to defend itself and "friends" it is at liberty to select its own weapons. Its reference to "friends" is one we did not expect it to have the frankness to admit, because as we have referred to no one except gamblers, bank wreckers and ballot box stullers. The Globe cannot refer to anyone as its "friends" in this connection except the class last named. E. \V. Skinner,secrotary of the Sl�ux City board of trade received a telegram yesterday from Congressman Struble briefly announcing that the house had passed the bill reviving the franchise of the Sioux City branch of the Union Pacific. The amendment mentioned provides tliat the proposed road shall cross the Missouri at Sioux City. The Journal says the tlianks of Sioux City people are due our representative, not only tor the efficient way in which he has worked for this most important measure, but as well for so promptly sending information when the measure passed. The friends of the bill in Washington have all along said that if the measure could be brought to a vote it would pass the house. How difficult it has been to get the vote only those who have worked in the interest of the measure know. Here in Sioux Citv tho repeated failures of tlie attempt to get a vote had discouraged all but a few. In tne senate it is confidently believed by tnose best in condition to know, the bill will be passed the present session. It will not have there as in the house, the obstructive rules which has made it next to impossible to reach a vote. _ As inclement as tlie weather was yesterday a large crowd attended Mr. Van Pelt's great reduction on the sale of cloaks, blankets, broche shawls, velvets, dress goods and other soecialtles for which his popular store is noted. Many who have the means are buying for future need as it is doubtful if goods of equal merit will ever be sold in this city again at what other dealers call "ruinous prices." Mr. Van Pelt intends to turn as much as possible of his large stock into good old-fashioned cash before starting east for sprinc' goods and he informs our reporter that he will continue this sale several days longer in order to stuff out his pocket-book before visiting the panicky markets of the east. "He buys for cash and sells for cash only," hence all these choice bai'gains that are so seldom found elsewhere,_____ Kemsou Nowa.

Missouri is quietly waiting for the arrowhead head sweepstakes and the award on Indian skulls. Any commonwealth can make butter and grow apples, but It takes a superior uualitv of soil to turnout asliuUIn good state of preservation. / Geo. Ilodam has 800 sheep fpr The Niobrara ReHorvntion Open to Sottlo-inont. The President has by executive order opened to public settlement, after May 15,1885, all lands within the Niobrara, or Santee Sioux reservation in Nebraska, remaining imalloted to and uuse-lected by Indians, except such as are occupied for agencyL^school and missionary purposes. The Journal says these lands comprise many thousands of acres of the richest agricultural and best timber land in the state of Nebraska. The reservation lies along tho Missouri river, at a point below the confluence of the Niobrara, and is only distant from Sioux City about eighty miles, and is immediately accessible by railway. There being no doubt entertained of the repeal of the pre-emption and timber culture act, these lands will deubtlessonly be subject to entry under the homestead act, and will therefore give opportunities to about twice as many settlers as the same extent of territory would under the old regime of speculative pre-emption and timber culture entries. However, the lands being among the richest in the whole north-west with railway facilities already at the door of the settler, the rush that Avill come with the montli of May will soon cover the last available acre. From Town to Town. The other day we quoted a correspondent's account of a family reaching Wakefield, Neb., claiming tliat they had been sent from LeMars to that place. The Wakefield Republican has come to hand with further particulars. The party consists of two women and five cliildren strikingly systematical in gradation, the whole company being possessed of an equatorial complexion. The older of the grown women reported herself as the grandmother, while tlie children were claimed to belong to the other, her daughter. They gave tneiv name as Dahurl, and both husbands dead. While on the road to Pone a on Friday, the seven-year old boy, while under the influence of a cliunk of candy, in answer to tho question where they lived, said, "on the cars," and further that ho never saw his father, and that tho older boy w.is not his brother, and that the younger of the grown women was not his mother. The older boy, about eleven, la reply to incidental interrogations, said the older of the women was his mother, and that his father died three years ago, and that only theoldestof the girls was his sister. Such conflicting reports from the different members give grounds for the belief that they are traveling from town to town, and imposing to no small extent upon the people. How Boyd Leedom, the democratic editor of Ponca, to whom they had been referred by LeMars parties, received them the Republican knows not. Curd of ThnnU.4. Editor Sentinel: We desire through the medium of your paper to express our heartfelt thanks to friends for their many kind and sympathizing ministrations in the great aflliction and liereavo-ment through which we have recently been called to pass by the illness and death of our little Florence.
