Attorneys Mull an Ptckett today received a telegram from Des Moines announcing a reversal of the lower court's decision in the case of Mike Cohen, convicted in November, 189G, of arson, at La Porte City, in which the store occupied by the defendant and several other business blocks were destroyed. The arrest of Mike Cohen and his brother, Ike, followed and they were confined in. jail here for severial months before the case was finally tried. 'Mike was convicted arid sentenced to three and a half years ia the peniten- tiary. He entered upon his term of service in the penitentiary in Decem- ber, 1896, and has served two years and four months, counting in the time allowed for good behavior he would have about four months to serve yet. The effect of the reversal, attorneys say.they cannot tell until the lull opin- .ion of the court has been forwarded to them. If it is on a vital point in the rulings of the lower court, the prisoner may go free; but if ithe reversal is on error, it may simply result in re- minding the case back for re-trial. The history of th'e case is well known to the people of Blackhawk county. Ike Cohen who was imprisoned in the county jail at the same time Mike was brought up was found not guilty and discharged. The case was tried before Judge Blair. Geo. W. Dawson was county attorney and was aided by Boies Boies, and S. T. Mears, of La Porte City. The defense was conduct- ed by Mullan Pickett.

'Mrs. Almira Brown at age of 82 years, departed this life last evening at o'clock, after several weeks of lingering suffering. Mrs. 'Brown lived with her son, Wan-en Brown, on Franklin street. On the evening of January 12 she sustained a fall on the stairway leading to the lower rooms of her home, which re- sulted in the dislocation of her should- er. She was carried to her room, but failed to rally from the effects of the fall, and lost the use of her arm and side and became practically paralyzed. Every thing that was possible wn done for her hut -without effect. Mrs. Brown's 'maiden name was Al- mira W. Abbott. She was born at New Mariborough, Mass., July 29, 1817. On December 15, 1836, she was married to Stephen Brown. The couple lived at Cornwall Hollow and Sharon, Conn., until 1SOS when they came west and settled at Waterloo. To them six children were born. There were four sons, Hiram, Luther, Allen and War- ren, and two daughters, Mrs. E. F. Merwin, who died here in 1894 ana Mrs. H. E. Janes who passed away in this city also, in 1869. Of the sons Hiram is living at Cedar Falls, Luther at Sharon, Conn., and Warren in this city. The deceased also leaves two sisters to mourn her death, Mrs. Sarah ;L. Winch, at Sheffield, Mass., and Laura B. Merrill, of Waterloo. Mrs. Brown's husband in 1S86, and since then she has lived with her son, Warren, remaining quite closely at home. She has visited her eastern birthplace several times and enjoyed the visits, but was always glad to re- turn to Waterloo. She was one of the pioneer residents here, and "was active in social and re- ligious interests for many years. Her death will be mourned by a large circle of friends. The funeral services will be held at the home at o'clock tomorrow conducted by Rev. Beeman. The burial will be in Kairview cemetery be side her husband. The Daily Courier gladly reprints the following from the Hudson Re- cord. Nothing was asked of mer- chants ia rotunn- for the mentions made in our write-up Of that place and Lhere is, therefore, no foundation for the insinuation that "these three folks wouldn't bleed nor is it true that tho omission of the gontlemen named was "a studied slight." We are obliged to the two-by-four editor of the Record for his kindly reference to the Courier's article. The Record says: In their write-up of tho town the Courier omitted one of the best known and oldest firms we have, that of F. D. Popp. 'Mr. Popp first engaged in the hardware and farm implement busi- ness rhere with M. M. DeiU, but the firm .dissolved and Mr. Popp went to Sioux Falls, South Dakota. He then returned, built the brick block he now occupies and has since had a first-class hardware store, carrying as largo (and he thinks the largest) line of shelf and heavy hardware town.

New York, April the re- ticence of the police facts became pub- lic today which make it apparent that the fire which destroyed thirteen per- sons yesterday Was of incendiary ori- gin. It transpired that a few hours before the names were seen, a police- man was sent for from the Andrews house, and was mysteriously dismissed by a servant who said he was not wanted. The latter has been threat- ening the lives of the Andrews family and the children of Mrs. St. John, it is found. It is believed that the motive for incendiarism-is revenge and that the affair arose out of a quarrel among servants.

It about 11 o'clock Thursday night. Mr. Chase, had drawn tho blinds ami closed up the store and was working on his books in the back room, when he was startled by a creaking, cracking noise from the metal roof of tho building, just aibovo ills head. Instantly the diamond robbery of a year ago Hashed into his mind, and Mr. Chase- became eoovln'ced the robber was on hand af- ter more booty. Tho former entrance to tho store had boon made through a skylight in tho roof. Harry sat still a moment and listened. The creaking noico increased. Ho was thoroughly convinced of the presence of some one on the roof who had no business there, and going to tho back door discovered a long ladder running up to the top of the building. This he toppled over on tho ground, and informing the would- be robber in a loud voice that his presence had been discovered, tho young jewolcr hastened out in search of Night Policeman Revington. Tho oflicor hurried to tho scene, raised the ladder and ran up to the roof of tho store. It is vacant. During the absence of the jeweler the fellow had made a flying leap of about 20 feet to the ground, at least Mr. Chase is con- vinced ho did and that tho imprints of his feel, were plainly seen In the soft mud of the alley -where ho alight- ed. Ho dot's not think though, that the follow intended to rob the jewelry store, but that be was trying to gain an entrance into one of the otiices in the building adjoining the jewelry store.

Mr. Brinton comes highly recommended, a man of wide and varied experience and gives a 1lrst- class entertainment. Ho has almost three thousand views of points of in- terest from various parts of the world Special to the Courier. Camp Columbia, Havana, Cuba, April is very scarce today. Items are like tho old saying goes: "Short and sweet." The best news is: "The Forty-ninth Iowa is ordered home." Just before supper yesterday a mounted "orderly" rode up to head- ciuarlers with a sealed letter, -which, when opened by the regimental adju- tant, said the Third Nebraska, Fourth Illinois and the Forjy-ninth Iowa were ordered back to w% states in the above named order. It is not known at present when wo will leave the is- land, but tho thought is prevalent among the officers that we -will leave about Thtirsday. When the order came the boys in the regiment commenced yelling at the top of their voices, but there was not as much enthusiasm displayed as there would have -been on any.other day. The boys thought it -was a hoax coming on "April Fool's Day." It was certainly a. "fooling" the boy a got, but it happened to be -in the right "way this time. In the evening the band got out and paraded up one street and down an- other until they had gone through the whole regiment, then they proceeded to headquarters, where that had followed them demain'ded that the order bo read over again. During all this time .the boys made the night air hideous with their yells, which were general and genuine sill through the. regiment. Tho people tit home can scarcely realize how happy the boys feel now to know that they will soon be free; and among loved ones ut home. Some of them have not been home since they HENRY J. SERVOSS. At o'clock at the home. No. 316 Western avenue, occurred the death of Henry J. Servoss, the contractor. Con- sumption is assigned as the cause. The remains will be taken to Fayette Monday for burial. Mr. Servoss was born in. Fayette county in 1866, near Fayette, and latei removed to that place. He was united in marriage at Manchester September ng towns. la adition to his harcl- vare business lie has a first-class tin shop with an experienced tinner in iharge. Some of his leaders are the Molinc ivagon, Rock Island hay loaders and ilauters, Deering binders, mowers and the like, Sattley cultivators. Besides these he carries a lino of buggies and surreys second to none in the coun- try. In. t.hc upbuilding of the town Mr. Popp has heen public spirited and an injustice was done him by thus leaving his name from a write-up purporting to be of Hudson. Another firm that, should have had a prominent place in tho write-up of Hudson is that of n. M. Tobias. Mr. Tobias came here six years ing a two story brick building of COx feet, occupying a large double room for his stock of general merchandise. He has since his arrival here been to the front in anything he conceived to be to the interest of Hudson, and is now serving his third term on the town council. No business man in town is better known, no one has larger patronage than him, and he should have heen included in the write- up by all means. That these two of our most prominent business men should have been missed seems a studied slight. Since writing the above we are told S. L. Wilson's restaurant business was also missed. Possibly it was thought Mr. Wilson was too well known to need a notice on an inside page of an out of town daily. Or. possibly, these three folks wouldn't breed properly. 29, 1892, with Emma sides the bereaved surviving relatives are Knight, wife, Be- the Board of Trade. though of course they do not doubt that he heard the noise as described. They say, however, that tin roofs are very apt to cause commotions, and if a man is nervously inclined, the rolling of pebbles over the roof by a gust of wind may make him sure that burglars are about. Policeman Hevington says ho lias been, called to several places lately where tho Strange noises wore hearn. He found nothing for sometime, but one night recently ho frightened a birn from the tin roof of a.certain busi- ness house. Then ho thought lie had discovered the culprit. Tho next, night lie crawled up to the roof and listened. Pretty soon tho bird put in its appearance and began picking and scratching at the -pebbles. The noiae it made could be distinctly heard be- low and the officer was satisfied the burglar was apprehended though not eaugh t.

Many of Co. B's boys are busy mak- ing boxes in which to bring, home their relics, souvenirs and clothes. Base ball is a pastime in which the boys are indulging pretty freely these days. A day or so ago a picket team with Corp. Willie Snyder as captain, crossed bats with a team that had Corp. Bucklin as captain, and the lat- ter was whipped shamefully with a score of 12 to 3 against them. Yesterday a game was played be- tween the corporals and privates of Co. B, and resulted in a victory ior the latter. Corp. W. .7. Peddicord, J. Bntwhistle and W. Lingelbach are very busy these days. The former is fixing up the company books, the latter is cleaning, mending and giving the boys' clothing a thorough overhauling preparatory to going home, and Entwhistle is still painting every box he can find in the street. Bert Starr was acting as orderly for the colonel yesterday. Most of Co. B's sick are returning to the company from the hospital. John sumptuous banquet had been spread for them and their wives by Landlord and Mrs. Burton. The delicious viands were discussed for more than an hour and then followed another hour of speechmaking. 'Eminent Commander H. B. Cropper presided as toastmas- ter. He called upon each of the newly initiated brethren for remarks and they responded with cheer and good feeling. Short addresses were also made by Senator M.ullan, Matt Parrott, and the banquet closed -with an en- tertaining story told by E. L. Johnson in his well known style.
