NORMAL FOOT BALL PLEASED WITH CAPE NOME. lowans Write That Geld in Pltnty is Mavshalltown, Aug. 28. The recent arrival at Seattle of an Alaskan steam- er, as reported in the dispatches of these columns, brought a batch let- ters from Marshalltown Klondikers. Mrs. T. T. Barbour and Mrs. Gllman Abbott each received letters froth their husbands, and' Mr. Gus Johnson heard from his friend, Sir. Will Michaels. Considerable news of interest is con- tained in the letters. Five members of the party, including Will Michaels and Ed Vail, of this city; F. W. Foster, of Ontario; K. A. Abbott and John Sewetl, of Charter Oak, are at present engaged in washing gold up the beach from Cape Nome. Prom high tide to a point sixty feet fi 19 A WISE WOMAN A Farct Comtdy in Thrtt Acts, at Optra House Tonight. Synopsis of the comedy: The plot turns on the divorce laws of New York, according to which, the1" desertion of one spouse for five years, permits' the other one to marry again, and the second marriage is valid, though the deserter returns. Paul Roach, a young artist has married his wife, Salina, not knowing she is a deserted wife. She on the other hand is ignorant of Paul having: had an entanglement 'with one of his models, .a rackety young lady with a keen eye to the main chance, rejoicing In the name of Honor. Paul also has a rich uncle who is re.illj' Sa- lina's first husband and who deserted Who are ijijured by the use of eoitee.

All are allowed, however, to wash any and all gold that" is possible, and one of the letters states that it has been known for.miners to wash as high as "worth of gold an hour. Mr. Harbour expected to join the gold-washing par- ty the next day after his letter was written, August 1. F. A. Benjamin and Major Roth, the latter of Eagle Hapbor, Mich., are at Golofnin bay, a point a short dis- tance from Cape Nome, but a little nearer St. Michael's. The members of the party are unani- mous in declaring Cape Nome superior in all ways to Dawson City, and think that it will be one of the coming cities of Alaska. They say there is' lots of gold along the beach and enough for all. Mr. Barbour writes that it has rained every day but three in the four, weeks the party has been there. "I he says, "of an old Esquimo, whom I. found here, if it rained all the time. He answered, laconically: 'No, not rain all the time; sometimes it snows.' Will Michaels and Ed Vail have re- cently returned from a prospecting trip up the mountains, and they had a pret- ty tough time of it. They encountered some snow even this early in the sea- son, and had to subsist several days on partially baked dough, called "biscuits" and bacon. As far as gold was con- cerned their trip was fruitless. Mr. E. A. Abbott of Charter Oak, a former Marshalltown resident, has tak- en the contract for. building a .hotel. The work is to be b'egun this fall. Oilman Abbott this city is in. the trading business arid'is buying Up "out- fits, goods, provisions, etc., that are for sale by prospectors who are discourag- ed and wish to leave for the states. He is speculating with them by selling them to others, and is doing verv well. The company's store has been doing a rushing business since it was opened. Several outfits, it will be remembered, were taken up by the Marshalltown party for members who had wintered on Custer Creek, but who met the party at St. Michaels after having be- come disgusted with Clear Creek and its prospects. The goods have sold well, for the party reached Cape Nome when the boom was at its height. Conse- quently there was a good market for almost anything. This uncle turns up in Paul's Hat and not knowing -his nephew is already married threatens to disinherit him if he ever takes to himself a wife. In or- der to save his inheritance, Paul is compelled to pass off his wife as the wife of his friend, Peter Clincher, who is already secretly married to his ward Maud Eveltry. Clincher has to act vip to the character of Salina's husband while Paul's troubles are yet intensified by the intrusion upon the domestic cir- cle of Honor the artist's model who claims the painter for her affianced lover. It would be a "waste of time to follow any further the embroglio of the piece. There is sufficient Topsy-Turvydoin and the resultant fun in three acts is fast and furious. However everything is put straight in a most masterly way. Eeward f 100.

The railroad hens which are now setting in Chicago and New York" are likely to hatch next month. It is understood the the North- western, the C., B. Q. and the Mil- waukee have reached an agreement as to the purchase and disposition of the Iowa Central. A representative of one of the interested roads was in town yesterday and he is authority for the statement that the Milwaukee is to have the Iowa Central lines north this city and the Centerville branch. This will give that road a trunk line from Kansas City and St. Louis to St. Paul and Minneapolis. The C., B. Q. is to have the east lines of the Iowa Cnetral, will build a connecting link from this city to Har- vey and makf> the new route from Bur- lington to Des Moines a main line. The Northwestern is to secure the- B. W. tracks from Wright to this city, widen then out and run their trains into this city. They will also get the B. W. depot grounds in this city and then continue their road southwest into the new coal fields now being opened by the Consolidated -oal Company, and then on through unoccupied terri- tory to Council Bluffs. This will force the Hock Island to continue its line west from Knoxville through Winterset to Atlantic, where it will connect with the old main line. By these changes Oskaloosa will be- come the hub of four trunk lines, and the natural division point for all of them. Peoria. 111.. Aug. an interview Mr. B.

Marshalltown, .August the officers, are following every slight clue that might It-ad to the capture of the unknown men who murdered Brake- men. Wilson and Matthews last Mon- day night, nothing has as yet develop- ed that is in any way encouraging. Deputy Garvey returned to the city after following another fruitless clue. The matter he was called to investi- gate was the return of two men of Fre- mont whose reputations are not the best. The Oskaloosa officers had been informed that these men had been in Marshalltown on the night of the mur- der and had returned to Fremont on the Iowa Central. Mr. Garvey learned to a certainty that it was the night previous that the- suspects were here, so further investigation along this line was abandoned. The railroad men of the Great West- ern who were interested in the recent murder of John E. Wilson and Connie Matthews are very grateful for many acts of kindness that have been ex- tended them by the roads Superintend- ent Gilmore. of the Des Moines division nf the road, furnished an extra coach and transportation for twenty-five peo- ple and the family of Hrakenian Mat- thews from Des Moines to Oskaloosa. tin? deceased having been buried at that place. The Great Western did the same thing from Oelwcin and Mines to this city, issuing transporta- tion to those along the line who desired to attend the funeral of John E. Wil- son. The Iowa also fur- nished a great amount of transporta- tion on account of the murder, all the searching parties that have been sent back and forth between here and Grin- nell having traveled on passes issvied by the company.
