HABVARD, HI., Oct. 21. Charles Arm
strong, for forty years one of Harvard's
most prominent citizens, has proved to be
a defaulter, having robbed his clients of
625,000. Ho had always borne an un
blemished reputation; but now it tran
spires t hat for years ho has been practic
ing systematic frauds. Armstrong, who
is now 77 years old, and very feeble, has
carried on a general collection "and loaning
business, besides being a justice of the
peace. He loaned large sums of money,
making thirteen loans for Mr. Joseph
Soothill, ranging from 400 to $1,000 each.
He did a like business for other residents
of this place. This he carried on for about
ten years. Mr. Soot h ill became suspicious
that all was not right. He accordingly
wrote a letter to each of the thirteen men
whom he supposed were owing him,
twelve of whom proved to
bo fictitious. The thirteenth man,
George Oakley of Marengo, Ills.,
wrote Mr. .Sootliill that he did not owe
bim anything. This alarmed Soothill,
and ho quietly set to work. He pro
cured a map and located the land on which
he supposed he held mortgages. He vis
ited two places in Seneca wnere lie held pa
pers; both names were bonus and a glance
.it the county clerk's register, in Wood-
TVfTlvf.fhf 111 V rmi .
btock, revealed the fact that the six names
in Mcllenry county against whom he held
naperwere forged. A further invest iga-
tion disclosed a similar state of affairs in
Boone county, six names being given in
that county. Soothill then confronted
Armstrong, informing him of tho result of
Jiis investigations. Armstrong at once ad -
,--pitted his crime. This brought on the
, -other creditors, and from everything that
can uj learned it is apparent that jtiV'OD
has- been fraudulently procured in this
way by Armstrong.
A JILTED GIRL'S REVENGE.
Chicago, Oct. 21. It is not the fault of
Florence Tyler of Butler, Ills., that Eugene
I Muoso was not murdered by her hand.
Tho cause for tho shooting was revenge.
Mease had formerly been engaged to her,
and they were to have been married last
New Year's da'. He put oil the wedding,
however, and last Saturdny married Miss

A WIFE-BEATER SUICIDES.
ATCHISON, Kan., Oct. 21. Anton Demcl,

stances that indicate suicide. He was ar

had his hearing yesterdas; but he sent
word that he could not attend, on account
of sickness. A constable went to his place
to investigate, and found him dead. Soon
&fter his arrest he began to drink very
pard, and it is believed that he dosed him
I Velf with poison yesterday morning. His
wife, whom he has beaten lor over thirty
years, will probably die from the effects of
Vhe last whipping. His conduct toward
ins wife has been that of a murderer, and
Micro is little doubt that ho intended to
kill her. Demcl was an exile from Prus

PARIS, Oct. 21. The duel between M.

ut ot the debate iu the chamber of
deputies yesterday relative to the action
cf the government against theBoulattgist.
in thocoursoof which M. Deroulde iu

Thkreapons used were pistols. Twenty
livopaces were marked off by the seconds,
and tho principals then took their posi-
tions. At the word M. Beinach fired, but
his shot flew wide of its mark. M
Deroulde did not fire. M. Reinach's
seconds then proposed that the duel be
continued, but M. Deroulde declined to
accede to the proposal.
London. Oct. 21. Mr. Gladstone ad
dressed an audience of 3,000 persons in the
Corn exchange at Edinburgh, this even
ins. Ireland, he said, continued to
eclipse all other subjects. The country
now fully recognized that the Irish ques
tion must bo settled before others. The
opponents of home. rule had hoodwinked
and deluded their constituents by pledg
ing themselves against coercion, promising
local government and expressing them
selves against granting largo advances of
British money to buy out landlords. Yet,
their first measure to gain power was
coercion. Local government was vanish
ing in this, and there was a proposal before
parliament granting 40,000 to buy out the
landlords. The Conservatives take credit
for settling Ireland rightly. Their admin
istration of the law was such that the
Irish ought to hate the law, though he
would not say when they ought to break
it. ne government was a perfect pattern
of illegality and its methods tended to pro
voke the people.
Mr. Gladstone then referred to the Tip
perary affair. It was grossly illegal, he
said, to close the doors of the court house
against the people. The appointment of
the magistrate was a gross scandal, not
merely because he was an executive officer,
but also because he had been involved in a
serious personal altercation with Mr. Dil
lon. If such tricks wore played in Eng
land by wantonness of power, a very short
way would oe lounu to remedy sucli
abuse. After the examples of policemen's
conduct at Mitchellstown and Tipperary,
it was impossible to respect the police or
tlie administration of law bv the police.
Their brutality and harshness constituted
the crowning insult of absenteeism, the
grossest that could be inflicted on the peo
ple at such a time.
Mr. Balfour appeared to feel that it was
not a part of the business of the minister
for Ireland to reside there. Besides, how
many of those present knew whether there
was a lord lieutenant of Ireland or not?
Nobody heard of him. Absenteeism, which
was one of tho lowest signs of degenera
tion in the last century, seemed now a
constant habit, the Irish minister flaunt
ing his abience in the face of the people.
British tax-payers paid 1,000,' 00 yearly
to the Irish police simply to assist in
collecting rents for the landlord.
English and Scotch landlords met their
tenants, and had not found it necessary to
appeal for the help of policemen to collect
their rents. Yet, British landlords had
lost more in rents than Irish landlords

An afternoon paper publishes an ab
stract of a letter received by President
Palmer, of the National World's Colum
bian commission, from Secretary Windom,
in regard to the expenses ot the com
mission. The secretary first st.ites that of
the 1,500,000 appropriated. 100,000 must
be used in the construction of a govern
ment building, leaving 1.100,000 for other
expenses. For the fiscal year ending June
30. 1891, there is appropriated jointly 200,
000 for the expenses of the commission
and the uses of the government board of
control. The government board has esti
mated that it will need 50,000, leaving
150,000 for the use of the commission.
The secretarr then shows that, in salaries
for ollicers and other expenses, the com
mission has disposed of 90,000 of this
$150,000, and that the expenses of meetings
of the executive committee now in session,
and of the meeting of the com
mission to be held on November
15, will bring the total up to
110,000, leaving only 40.000 to run the
commission on from that date uutil Juno
30, 1891. Continuing, the secretary says:

that: for it imposes upon the secretary the
necessity of exercising proper discretion in
approving the compensation fixed by your
commission for its ollicers.
"It is fair to presume that congress in
tended, by this last mentioned provision of
the law, to prevent the giving of what
might be termed unreasonab e compensa
tion to any of the officials of the commis
sion. But, in arriving at this determina
tion, the secretary of tne treasury must
take into consideration the opinions of
this representative body of men. It ap
pears trom your records, as before stated,
that the commission unanimously agreed
that tho ollicers named sliall be
paid the compensation as stated
(president of the commission. 15,000; sec
retary, 10,000; director general, 15,000;

Immediately after this communication
was read before the executive committee.
Commissioner Martindale offered a resolu
tion, which was adopted, declaring that all

THE CORN CROP-
CHICAGO, Oct. 21. The Farmers' Review
tomorrow will say: A careful examina
tion of estimates furnished by our cor
respondents reveals the fact that the corn
crop is turning out somewhat better than
whs expected. The crop in Michigan and
Wisconsin is larger than that of last year,
and the returns m Minnesota and Dakota
are almost as large as in 1SS9. Other
states, however, show a considerable
shortage. This is most mnrked in Kansas
and Nebraska, where the crop will be less
than one-half that of 1SS) la several
counties in these states corn is a toval
failure; at least, it is pour in quality And
only fit for fodder Reports from Iiliuois,
Ind'iana, Ohio, Kentucky, Missouri and
Iowa state that while the ears are small,
owing to the midsummer drouth, as a rule
they are well filled, sound and thoroughly
matured, grading No. 1 and No. 2.
The Review estimates the average yieW
to be: Illinois 25 bushels, Indiana ,
Ohio 31, Kentucky 23, Missouri 28, Kan
sas 14, Wisconsin 40, Michigan 47, Iowa
30. Nebraska 18, Minnesota 30, Dakota 23.
The crop in the twelve states named is
thus estimated: Illinois 224.62S.712, In
diana 105,03S,192, Ohio 92.22S.123, Ken
tucky 5B.920.44G, Missouri 1S4.5S0.012,

ducting from the above gross product the
large per centage of unmerchantable corn,

able corn in the twelve states named is
According to the October report of the
department of agriculture the condition of
the corn crop in the remaining states not
covered by this report is about 85 per cent
of an average. The government report
showed that in 1SS7 the crop in these states
amounted to 534,113 000 bushels; in 18S3, to
525,275,000 bushels, and in 1SS9, to 536,760,
A CORNER ON SUNSHINE.
FlN'DLAY, O., Oct. 21. This morning
every win.iow and glass factory in Findlay
went into the trust which has been organ
ized to control the production and sale of
window glass. This trust embraces all
the window glass houses in the United
States west of Pittsburg, with the single
exception of that at Salina, O.. which is
owned by Findlay parties. The effect of
this combination will be to increase the
cost of glass, because it prevents any
competition. The new tariff gives the
trust additional protection from importa
tions, and, although no window glass will
be imported, yet the prices will be as high
as though the glass was imported and the
duty paid upon it. The factories here do
not want it known that they will handle
their product; but all the orders will have
to come through one central agent. The
headquarters "of the trust is located at
INGALLS AT PITTSBURG.
Pittsburg, Kan., Oct. 21. Despite the
rain which poured down almost con

Pittsburg. Large crowds were in the city
to listen to the discussion of the political
issues by Senator Ingall3 and Capt. J. B.
Johnson. Excursions were run to tho city
from all surrounding towns. The senator
spoke in the opera house in the afternoon
to a crowded house, hundreds being turned
away for want of standing room. The
sena'tor prefaced his speec i in the after
noon by acknowledging his gratification
at tho cordial welcome given him, and for
the past support which had been invar
iably extended to him. He said that this
was the first time he had ever had the
pleasure of visitiug Pittsburg. He said
that he was not here to apologize for being
a Republican; that he was a Republi
can because he believed in the princi
ples of the party; that he did not
believe in the kind of Republicans
who are Republicans a part of the time
only. He believed in organized labor,
but not in organized conspiracy. He was

against him from the People's party, and
defied them. He was in favor of free

THE OHIO LEGISLATURE.
Columbus, O., Oct. 21. The house this
morning adopted a resolution, as the sense
of the body, that no slight or insult was
intended on the part of the house in the
refusal of the speaker to accent the cov-
! ernor's message yesterday evening, and ap
pointing a committee to call upon the cov-
' ernor aud request that the message again
be sent to the house. Governor Campbell
complied with the request. The message
recommends that the legislature pass a
law providing a non-partisan board of im
provements for Cincinnati, to consist of
lour members, to be appointed by the
mayor, and that an election be held in
April. He scores deeply the lobby, which,
he says, has been here from Cincinnati in
the interest of the present board of im
provements, and says that their open
delaration that they are controlling legis
lation ought to be sufficient indication to
the members that the board is in bad re
pute. Columbus, O., Oct. 21. Governor
Campbell's message was received in tho
senate this aftemoou and referred. Fol
lowing this a strong attack was made on
the governor by Senator Brown, of Cin
cinnati, who in a lengthy speech con
demned his course relative to the board of
public improvements at Cincinnati. Dur
ing the session the senate passed a bill
providing that Mayor Mosby shall have
the appointment of members of a new
board and an election is to be held in
April. The bill is non-partisan in char
acter and abolishes the present liw. There
were only three votes in the senate against
the bill, all the Republicans voting in its
Senator-Elect Brice has been in consul
tation with the governor during the day,
and is given credit for bringing about a
probable settlement of the difficulties, and
the anticipated passage of the bill. The
house caucus, coutroiied by Democrats
said to be oppo-ed to the governor, has
agreed upon a bill givinc the governor
power to remove for cause only, and fixing
an election for April. There will be a con
test in the house over the two proposi

ORIGINAL PACKAGES IN IOWA.
FORT DODGE, la., Oct. 2L A gigantic
scheme on the part of the liquor men of
Iowa to bring back the original package
to legal life- has been discovered in this
city. A number of the men who were
openly engaged iu the original-package
business last summer have received circu
'ars purporting to have come from the
secretary of the state Original-Package
Dealers' association. The name signed to
the circular was that of a prominent
Council Bluffs liquor dealer. In the name
of the newly formed association, every
saloon-keeper was urged to contribute lib
erally to a fund to be used in an attempt
to secure an injunction restraining the
Iowa courts from prosecuting original
package dealers under the old prohibitory
law. It is claimed that the recent Kansas
decision gives good grounds for such
AT SIOUX CITT.
Sioux City, la., Oct. 2L Original pack
age houses are beginning to open here, in
vievr of the recent Kansas decision. The
city authorities are arresting the propri
etors and fining them 50 a month, as was
done before congress passed the Wilson
bill. There are at least S00 places where
liquor is sold, but these places will be
closed up by the city authorities, and only
the respectable original package houses al
lowed to run.
TOPEKA, Kan., Oct. 21. Governor
Humphrey today removed the board of
police commissioners of Leavenworth,
which was appointed last week, and named
a new board. The new commissioners are
William Fairchild, who is made president
of the board, P. McGahey, who is made
secretary; and D. A. B. Callahan, who is
the Democratic member. Tho change
was made by reason of the action of the
board yesterday in removing City Marshal
McGahey and appointing ITred Willard,
secretary of the Resubmission club, to
that position. The governor interpreted
this action to mean that the board was not
in favor of a rigid enforcement of the pro
Washington, Oct. 21. E. O. Leech, the
director of the mint, has returned from a
visit to a number of mines in the west.
Speaking of his trip today, he said:
"As to the prospects of silver mining
and the current production of our mine-.
I should say that the silver production of
the United States is increasing; certainly
there is great activity in all the mining
camps which I visited, and when one
considers that only a short time ago
tbey were getting only 90 cents an ounco
for silver and 3Jf cents a pound for lead,
while today silver is worth $1.10 an ounce
and lead 6 cents a pound, it is not surpris
ing that there should be great activity in
mining industries, and that tho output
should be increased. But the precious
metals are not like wheat and cereals or
manufactured goods, they can not bo
raised ad libitum; they must be found,
and when found are soon exhausted,
especially when actively and profitably
A MAYOR FINED.
Long Island Citv, L. I., Oct. 21. Mayor
Patrick Gleasou of this city, who was con
victed last week of assault iu the third de
gree upon George F. Crowley, the Long
Lslaud agent ot the Asssociated press, was
arraigned before Judge Cullen in the
Queens county court of oyer and terminer,
this morning, and sentenced, after motions
for a new trial, arrest of judgment, etc.,
had been denied. Judge Cullen imposed a
sentence of five days iu the county jail and
a fine of $250 Judge Cullen was very se
vere on Mayor Gleason's act. The court
room was crowded, and a burst of applause
which greeted the sentence was promptly
suppressed by the court.
MORLEY ANSWERS BALFOUR.
London. Oct. 21. In the course of a
speech at Newcastle today, in which he
scored Mr. Balfour roundly, Mr. Morley
said that he would adhere to his previous
assertion that the police had used excessive
force in Tipperary. It was not
bodily injury, which Mr. Balfour's
sticking plaster would mend, but
tho stiug of insult which intlamed
the people. Such supercilious talk
showed that Mr. Balfour was unfit to
govern. He declined to reply to Mr. Bal
four's invitation to express an opinion as
to the innocense or guilt of the Tipperary
prisoners before their trial. He leltthat
to Mr. Balfour. For himself he would
not decide until the prisoners were tried
by judge and jury as they would be tried
under the same circumstances in England.
STRIKE AT A FUNERAL.
New York, Oct. 21. It has Income
necessary in Jersey City now to have a po
liceman at every funeral. The undertakers
and the union coach drivers are at variance.
Each has an association. The drivers
caused the present trouble by refusing to
drive if a non-union coachman was in
line and arrests had to be made
of the obstinate union men The under
takers decided last week to check these
scenes and have practical! v decided to dis
solve tht driver's union. The latter will
diehard. They manifested their disposi
tion to fight Saturday at the funeral of
Mrs. Bostwick in Greenville. The under
taker in charge was Wm. H. Spear. The
drivers quietly organized a strike to com
pel Spear to withdraw from the under
taker's organization nnd sanction
the Driver's Union. The drivers
did . not show their hand un
til they reached tlie house of
mourning. Then the demand was made
Spear would not accede, and the funeral
was about to be postponed when police aid
was sought. The drivers were informed
that as they had started to drive the
mourners to the cemetery they must exe
cute the contract or they would be arrest
ed for conspiracy. Thedrivers had a con
ference and concluded to abaudon the
strike until some other time. The funeral
was relayed only a short time.

Washington, Oct. 21. Attorney re
presenting the interest" of the white set
tlers in tne Choctaw Nation were at the
interior department today nrging that
their appeal for an extension of time for
the removal of themselves and stock held
to be iilegallv on the reservation be favor
ably considered. The attorneys state that
telegrams received from settlers complain
that the time fixed for their removal
(November 1) is entirely too short for the
necessary preparation of their stock. They
contend "that if they are compelled to leave
on the date fixed many of them will be
The appeal has been pending before the
secretary for some time. It is probable that,
in view of the -hrt notice given, he will
modify his order by extending the time.

the merest chance the engine was stopped
just before it reached them.
