Burlington Hawk Eye (Newspaper) - October 15, 1890, Burlington, Iowa ESTABLISHED JUKE, 1839.) SCPREME COURT vacancy. HAWK-E YE. Several Good Men Talked of to Succeed Justice Miller. th* Funeral of the Dead IrftOfHlf f°r Miller’* Frleadehlp for Bel-kaap_DUi>o»itlon of the hat. ter’* Remains. ^ABBINGTON, Oct. 14.—Speculation as to ike successor of Justice Miller of the court has already begun. Sen-Judge Graham, Senator .wr Spooner Manderson, Attorney General Miller, Senator Teller and ex-Solicitor General Phillips, of North Carolina, are suggested and discussed as likely to be considered. It generally believed that Spooner, Gresham aud Miller are the ansi likely men for the place. By the flection of Judge Gresham, President Harrison could make a showing of magnanimity and at the same time make it probable that Gresham’s following would not be antagonists in Indiana should Harrison desire to succeed himself. By selecting Attorney General Miller be would provide a life position fur his friend, and have his advice and aid just the same as though he were in the cabinet. Spooner, if he would accept the position, is a particularly valuable man for it, being young, vigorous and an excellent lawyer. None of these three, however, live in the circuit covered by Justice Miller. Manderson, who lives in the circuit, is spoken of as an excellent selection, and a young man yho would be likely to have a long term of usefulness. Teller also lives in the circuit, and is spokeu of as possible but not probable. Samuel M. Phillips, of Kortb Carolina, formerly solicitor general, is mentioned as about the only southern man likely to be considered. He is an able and cultured man and fine lawyer, and would do honor to the position if the president desires to go south for a selection. Arrangements for Justice Miller’s funeral were completed to-night. The 'services take place Thursday afternoon between two and three o’clock in the supreme court room at the capitol, and in accordance with Mrs. Miller’s desires, the ceremonies will be of the simplest character. At the conclusion of the services the remains will be placed on a special car attached to a regular train on the Pennsylvania road, leaving here at 7:40 p. in., arriving at Chicago the following events? and atK eokuk at IO a. rn. Saturday. The funeral at Keokuk wiil take place from the Unitarian church immediately after the arrival of the train. The honorary pall-bearers will probably be Chief Justice Fuller and the associate justices of the supreme court. 1890, to band of Cheyenne tnHu ^ river reservation in    the    I*00*116 the band of —Fontana and with negotiate with the northern e ltongue me Dana OI norther mU—*" And on the Pine Rid?** »01eyenne Indians Dakota. tr\r    enervation    in South Dakota, for such mnji« In 8011111 another right,, a, mayTd^'JdT Au DAUGHTERS OF THE REVOLUTION.

It decision that IN EXTRA SESSION. by the The Ohio Legislature Reconvened Governor. Columbus. Ohio, Oct. 14.—1The Ohio state legislature convened in extra session at ten o’clock this morning and after the reading of the call the joint committee waited upon the governor who submitted a message. This was read and referred to the judiciary committee and a recess was taken until 2:30 this afternoon. The message sets forth that the session is called because of the deplorable condition of the public service at Cincinnati and for the purpose of securing necessary legislation to give the people an opportunity to select members of certain boards at the November election. He says it is unnecessary to enumerate the charges of crookedness which have been made, concerning which the majority of the members are informed. The message says that the time has come to regulate and adopt a new charter for Cincinnati, as already proposed. POLYGAMY RENOUNCED. President Woodruff* Says Mormons Will Obey Constitutional Laws. New York, Oct. 14.—The Independent will publish to-morrow articles received by telegraph from President Woodruff of the Mormon church, and Governor Thomas, of Utah, concerning the action of the Mormon conference of October 6, forbidding polygamy. President Woodruff says:    ‘The action of congress is conclusive. The church has no disposition to violate the laws or defy the government. A revelation of God requires us to obey the constitutional laws of the land. Judge Zaue has recognized the action of the church as sincere and fiual and has rescinded the rule excluding Mormon aliens from naturalization.” Governor Thomas said:    “The mani festo of the president of the church has now been confirmed by conference. It comes with the force of a new revelation and whatever doubt may have been expressed as to the purpose and effect of the manifesto as first sent out, they now seem removed. The gentiles rejoice that the contest begun so many years ago against polygamy, has finally triumphed; for they believe never again will polygamy nourish on American soil. This is the most important event that has occured in the Mormon church in years and it is believed will result in greatly advancing the material interests and prosperity of the territory. [Special to The Hawk-Eye.) Hillier?.’ °Ct- u - The case of M. Willis S Rinw? 0f tbe murder of ins fs. Kingsley, county attorney of be?TlM-“l7’ at Wav"r|y «» De> em-the TnLo *’ a8aib been reversed by was il«d    mZZrBrTh?8 deHsiu" tv in    ddick in Bremer eoun' sLtLni!?* ! ng8 being convicted aud verdict of n° In^pidf0Dment for life on a 'ptjr V of murder in the second degree. The decision was reversed and a second trial resulting as before was held in Judge John J. Ney’s district Waterloo, Black Hawk Is    Judge    Ney’s JS    now    reversed.    The opin ion is very lengthy, reviewing the evidence from the beginning. The facts upon which the decision is based is that Kingsley was found in his office fatally wounded by a pistol shot; that beside him lay the revolver from which the shot was bred and in a position in which it might naturally have been if discharged by himself; that the pistol,when discharged. must have been placed with the muzzle against the face and under the eyebrow as evidenced by the eyelash** being burned, and the nose burned and powder stained below the wound, and the eyebrow and face above the wound being unaffected; that he was a man of good physique, in the vigor of bis physical manhood, and if observing capable of and prompted by law of self-preservation would have prevented a deadly assault with a pistol placed against his face; that such a position of tile revolver is a natural one for a person committing suicide and an unnatural one for one taking the life of another even in the absence of anticipated resistance: that but two shots were fired and but two balls have ever beeu discovered, one in the head of Kingsley and one against the back of the defendant: that it is inevitable that both shots were fired by the same person and by either Kingsley or defendant; that immediately preceding the tragic occurrence aud connected with it was an altercation involving charges against Kingsley so grave and important to the parties as from their truth or falsity were provocations of the moment to serve either as a for the taking of human life. With these undisputed facts uninfluenced by others the verdict of all men would be “that the shots were fired by Kingsley.” They would not sustain a verdict against the defendant even on a basis of probability. They are also of the opinion that the far-famed bullet holes in the clothing substantiate the above fact. Judge Ney, refusing a new trial although convinced that the verdict was contrary *to the evidence introduced, was severely criticized and censured. In conclusion the court says; “After a second trial we may reasonably conclude that the facts on which the state relies for conviction are fully presented and that the state may probably determine the propriety of further prosecution. We have announced our views as to sufficiency of evidence to sustain conviction. Our conclusion in this respect is in harmony with that of the judge who presided at the trial and gave to the testimony long and patient attention with many added opportunities to know its value and because of this, we are less reluctant to interfere with the verdict because of the want of evidence than we otherwise would be under well known rule as to caution in such cases. These considerations make our duty plain and the judgment of the district court is again reversed. The decision is so positive that it will undoubtedly end the case. If the Bremer county authorities do not at once dismiss the prosecution Billings can be released in a few days on a writ of habeas carpus. Other decisions:    State vs Mahan, from Clinton county, reversed; Thiessen vs. City of Belle Plaine, appellant, from Benton county, reversed; Potter, appellant, vs. Kennelly, from Monroe county, reversed; State vs. O’Brien, appellant, from Marshall county: affirmed. He Im Accorded a Warm Reception log Speech, tCorrespondence of Tub Hawk-Eyb.] ^Riverside, la., Oct. 14.—Mouday*eve-j0rd 8 hall was crowded despite the bad weather, even some fifty ladies centum! out to hear the champion of republicanism. The speaker was at hts best and no more attentive audience ever greeted a speaker than Old Business faced on that evening. In clear and forcible language he presented the issues, showing facts and figures to bring out his points understandingly, and for two hours and twenty minutes gave invincible arguments in favor of the doctrine he champions. It. was a grand treat, aud so logically were the issues discussed that, much good will result therefrom. his discussion he said the tai in was a dry issuo for an audience, but we refute the charge from the simple fact that it take?, a mighty interesting speaker to? hold an audience two hours, and the ex-governor made the subject so full of interest that not a voter left the room and hardly a shuffle of the feet could be heard, so interested were the people. Ho is not what you would call an orator, but his long experience in public affaire places him to a great advantage and the bard facts just roll out word after word and so convincing, because he is acquainted and knows whereof he speaks. How he did talk about the McKinley bill, bringing out Its advaniages and the great benefit the country would derive from it. How important it was to our agricultural interests, merchandise, wool, binding twine; how it related to sugar, etc.; spoke of ihe development of the beet sugar industry; discussed the liquor question; showed up the falsity of the statement that American agricultural implements were sold cheaper in foreign markets than at home: denounced the story of the Chicago boot and shoe dealer marking an advance price on goods on account of the McKinley hill, as a very cheap campaign tie. After talking about the markets of the world aud how they were governed, lie took up the silver bill, the pension disability bill, cited the lottery bill, the (mis) representation in congress from the south, and many other facts, all of which were logically and conclusively brought out. It was an earnest appeal to the voters, and although many important questions were left out, owing to time, it was an invincible argument, and is bound to result in good and to the credit of our able and worthy congressman.

Tindall to-day made a speech demanding the establishment of a regency. A resolution to the effect that the interest of royalty had been seriously prejudiced and that the crown had lost prestige was adopted. TERRIFIC CALES. Many Vessels in Danger of Wreck on the Big Lakes. London, Oct. 14.—It looks as lf Lord Salisbury was trying to force a war upon Portugal in order to revive the jiugo feeling in England and divert public attention from home affairs Indeed, if rumors which have reached London within the last twenty-four hours should turn out to be true, acts of hostility amounting to war have already been committed. The greatest excitement prevails throughout Portugal over the news from Zambesi, whirh, if confirmed, will show that England is determined to enforce the provisions of the Anglo-Portuguese convention without waiting for the approval of Portugal. England has for a long time aspired to the control of the Zambesi river, and the free navigation of that important stream was the leading clause in the convention which has aroused so much opposition in Lisbon. In accordance with the ultimatum which was sent by Lord Salisbury, the English have now forcibly entered the river, thereby ignoring Portugal’s right to approve or disapprove the compact and virtually committing an act of war. The feeling of the Portuguese generally is strongly in favor of retaliation against Great Britain and the socialists are doing all they can to stimulate the popular excitement. A revolution is feared. Several Spanish men-of-war and an Italian naval division are at Lisbon, watching the course of events. IMlloa and O'Brien'* Whereabout*.

DKS Moines, Oct. 14.—The president of the state farmers’ alliance has issued a call for the annual convention, to be held in this city October 29. at Hibernian hall. The ratio of representation will be one delegate from each local and three delegates from each county alliance. The call says: “It Is the should be a local alliance. "The past year has been one of the most eventful, not only in the history of the low* alliance but in the alliance work ovt*r the entire United State*. The work of organization has been pushed with great energy and rapidity everywhere, and especially in the Iowa alliance. • Several hundred new alliances will be presented f..>r the first time in our annual meeting and it is therefore important that this new element should bo fully represented and that, as a result of this meeting there should be a unity of sentiment both in matter of belief and policy, that will enable the alllianccto move onward to greater achievements in The future than has been made in the past "To this end the local alliances should consult aud select truly representative men by whose matured and well considered judgment they are willing to be guided. "In addition to the usual discussion of public measures and policies and the election of officers, the 'question of giving the local alliances power to adopt secret work when they deem it expedient will be brought before the alliance in accordance with a resolution adopted by the ex> cutive board. Other measures of great importance will come before the meeting, and therefore a full attendance Is of the utmost importance." Russia-Poland Affair*.

Further mystery is added to the attempted assassination inasmuch as a second attempt was evidently planned on his life Sunday night, the fact until now having been kept secret. Vthile sitting in his room alone he suddenly heard somebody working at the window. By accident his father-in-law approached the house at the same time, carrying a lantern, and saw a man disappear in the darkness. Investigation reveals the fact that the screen over the window had been cut. Detectives are at work and sensational developments are anticipated. J.

London, Oct. 14.—Although there is no formal alliance between France and Russia the evidences of a very close understanding are becoming apparent. The French government has recently voted over 1,000,000 for the improvement of the residence of the ambassador at St. Petersburg. It is known that the object of this is to enable the minister to give a ball this winter at which the czar and czarina will be present. Russian imperial etiquette prevents the emperor from dining at the house of any man below the grade of king, but allows him to take supper at a ball. The French ambassador s house being small, the yard was covered and fitted up as a ballroom last winter and the empress caught a severe cold. Hence the improvement. The coming ball will afford an opportunity for a demonstration of the czar’s good will to France. It is also rumored at Berlin that a new gold loan is being negotiated at Paris for the Russian government. Lord Salisbury has instructed the British minister at Paris to protest against the statement published in the new Russophile journal, the Union Franco~Russe, that the Eugiish government instigated the assassination of the Emperor Paul, of Russia. The paper in question continues to make the most virulent attacks upon the English, accusing their nation of all sorts of crimes. Throng* of People Witness the Immense Procession of Salvationist*.. London, Oct. 14.—The funeral of Mrs. Catherine Booth, wife of the general of the Salvation Army, took place to-day aud was made the occasion of a great demonstration by that organization. Despite the bad weather thousands of persons assembled on the streets to witness the funeral procession. All railroads entering London ran excursion trains, and the throng in thecity was augmented by immense numbers of Salvationists and their friends from the provinces. There was also a large attendance from foreign countries. The crowd od this occasion surpassed in point of numbers those which gathered to witness the show on the lord mayor's day. The remains of Mrs. Booth were conveyed to her quarters by Queen Victoria. Her coffin was placed upon a kind of gun carriage, on which were also placed the deceased’s bonnet and bible.

S. j Nanderhill, one of the railroad commis-I sinners of North Dakota, resides at Antelope, we>t of the Missouri river, where j he is interested in stock raising. He re-! oorts a deplorable condition of affairs among the ranchmen in his district re-! "ultant from recent unprecedented prai-| rie fires between Hart and Cannonball rivers, and in the valleys of both the de struction bas been almost complete: while about the Kilidear mountain and east of there nothing has been left for the. stoek to live upon. At Riverside ranch at the mouth of the Little Hart river five hundred tons of hay and three .hundred head of cattle were burned up: \At the Parkins ranch, on the Cannonball river, the loss was the heaviest. Wicked ranch lost everything except the buildings. In all settlements in the valleys of the Hart, Cannonball and Knife rivers the loss has been quite heavy, the fire going completely through the villages In almost every instance in the valleys small farmers have lost their crops and feed for winter. During the course of the fire the wind was blowing a hurricane. At Riverside ranch fire-breaks, eight hundred feet in width, had been made, but the flames leaped over them as if they were not there. Ranchmen are inclined to lay these Ares to Indians from the Fort Yates reservation, who come up into the valleys of the Hart, Cannonball and Knife rivers and drive game south, burning the prairies behind them to prevent the game from going before being killed or captured. The ranchmen assert they will be able to get strong circumstantial evidence if not positive proof against these Indians, and propose to take the matter before the proper authorities to prevent a repetition RAILROAD MATTERS.

London, Oct. 14.—The latest news about Dillon and O'Brien is that they have landed on the coast of Brittany and are by this time in Havre ready to take the next steamer for New York. There is now no reason to dqjtbt that they boarded a yacht owned by a wealthy Parnellite member named Murphy at a point near Waterford and made straight for the French coast. The trial at Tipperary, now that the chief defendants have escaped, bn* little public interest, and the proceedings consist mainly of wrangles between Ronan, the vulgar and bumptious barrister who has charge of the case for the crown, and counsel for the nationalists. It will result in the conviction of a few unimportant men, but the political coup intended by Secretary Balfour has been balked by the flight of the two leaders whom he hates most among the Parneil-ite members. gloominess of the scene was added to by J of their present losses the dense fog which never once lifted during the whole proceedings. General Booth stood at the head of the grave and read the burial service. Officers of the army from various ports of England, the British colonies, the American continent and Asia delivered orations. Portugal’* Ministerial Criai* Nettled. London, Oct. 14.—The Times' Lisbon correspondent says telegrams from Mozambique report that a British force of eight hundred men has penetrated to Maui ca and that two gunboats have entered the Zarnbisi.

Ll boral* Prove to Be in the Majority the Haile Congrexs. Halle, Oct. 14.—In the socialist congress to-day an exciting discussion took place between the liberals and extremists. in which the former proved to b<* in the majority. Herr Silver advocated agitation by parliamentary methods and denounced those who were opposed to achieving the alm^ of socialism with the weapons furnished by the law and constitution. The congress finally voted a resolution in favor of Herr Singer’s views, much to the disappointment of the most violent eimenet of the party. The feeling against Herr YY’erner, who i> accused of insincerity and of being a socialist for revenue only, is growing, and it appears certain that he will not be permitted to remain in the congress. The congress agreed to appoint a committee to inquire into the disputes between the socialist parliameutery leaders aud the Berlin opposition. Resolutions were adopted declaring that the socialist deputies in the reichstag should continue to urge the demands of the social democrats against the ruling of the middle classes; their legislative activity should be d‘rected toward the improvement of the position of the working classes both politically aud economically: the party should also maintain the existing right cf the coalition until the full liberty of the meeting and association had been reached. Liebknechtattributed the onslaught against parliamentarism in the press to a misunderstanding. The nation found fault with parliament, not because the people’s rights were not better studied by that body, bat because of the stupidity of its indifference to the subject. Several foreign delegates made their first appearance to-day and were received with enthusiasm. An especially warm welcome was given to Frau Marx, the daughter of Karl Marx, and Mdlie Guesde and Ferroul, who represent the French socialist congress.
