A special from Key West, Fla., says:
Advices received here state that the
greatest excitement prevails in Havana,
occasioned by the recent acts of Capt!. Gen.
Marin in taking possession of the custom
houseand placing the officials under arrest.
The city is in charge of regular troops and
the situation becomes daily more desperate,
recalling events attending the massacre of
medicalistudehtsinlSri. A reign of terror
prevails, and it is expected that Havana
will be declared in a state of siege. Already
several conflicts have occurred between the
troops and civilians, resulting in the killing
of some and the wounding of others. Marin
has called on the volunteer regiments,
which are hostile to him, to disband aud
disarm, or be held responsible for what may
occur. The custom house, postoffice and
all the public buildings are guarded. All
confidence appears to be gone. Even the
cable officials are suspected and military
are placed in charge of telegraph offices to
prevent dispatches being sent of what is
transpiring. All the important dispatches
between the officials in Havana and the
authorities in Madrid are brought here by
special messenger for transmission. The re
plies are also sent to this office. Those ac
quainted with Gen. Marin stato that he wi!l
carry out his policy of purifying the public
service regardless of consequences, and al
ready a feeling of uneasiness permeates
every branch thereof. Alexander Gonzales

A peculiar incident occurred on the
Lake Erie & Western train which left In
dianapolis, Ind., a few evenings since. As
the train neared NobJesville a gentleman
who had apparently been dozing started
suddenly and placed his hands on his pock
ets. He then complained of having been
robbed and said that he believed the man
who had occupied the seat iust back of him,
but who had disappeared,' bad committed
the act. A passenger informed him that
the man was in the next coach. Then taking
a pistol from his "valise, the victim of the
robbery passed into the coach and presented
the cocked revolver at the head of the man
whom he suspected of the robbery. The fel
low protested his innocence, but the man
with the pistol assumed a more threatening
demeanor and the thief quietly drew the
man's watch and pocketbook from an inside
pocket and handed them to him. The re
volver was then lowered and the sleepy pas
senger returned to his slumber. No attempt
was made to arrest the thief.

Phillip D. Armour, of Chicago,when
asked if it were true that the dressed beef
men and railroads were scooping in all the
profits of the trade, leaving the cattle rais
ers, the retail butchers and the poor con
sumers out in the cold, he said: "There is
absolutely nothing to all this outcry. No
business is run so close as this dressed beef
business. It is like weighing gold dust. I
think the railroads get a better price out of
it than anybody else, or than they do out of
any other business in the world. There is
something in that part of it."

The Manitoba R. has purchased
nearly 400 acres of land at St. Cloud, Minn.,
for shops and stock yards, lying on both
sides of the Sauk river. The engineers will
be placed at work at once, and the ground
wilt be prepared this fall and a commence
ment made on the buildings. The car shops
will probably be located on this side of the
Sauk river, while the entire Eugene McCar
thy farm, 160 acres, will be taken for the
stock yards, which will be on a swale to ac
commodate the traffic of Minnesota, Dakota
and Montana. In addition to the car shops
an extensive foundry will be built to turn
out all the car wheels used on the road. The
company will expend in this work this fall
and in 1888, $1,000,000, and the works will
provide for 7,000, which would mean the
employment of at least 1,500 men.
The house of D. S. Hiller, a farmer
living about six miles from Osseo, Hennepin
Co., Minn., in an isolated locality, was
visited by two men about 9 o'clock in the
morning. Mrs. Hiller was the only
occupant of the house, Mr. Hiller and sons
being in the field at work, some distance
from the house. The men threw Mrs.
Hiller into the cistern and then proceeded
to ransack the house. One hundred and
seventy-four dollars in money and $900 in
notes were stolen. The men then fled,
leaving Mrs. Hiller in the cistern, from
which perilous situation she was rescued
some two hours later by her son. The cis
tern contained seven feet of water and she
clung to the pipe to keep from drowning.
The rascals were not caught.
Chairman Cooley of the Inter-State
Commerce commission, replying to O. D.
Keyes of Faribault, Minn., upon the matter
of taking voluminous oral testimony in
Minnesota in the Board of Trade Union vs
theC. M. &S P. ER, offers the opinion
that the facts must be largely matters of
public notoriety which it will be unneces
sary to prove orally. He dwells at some
length on the volume of business awaiting
the action of the commission and urges
counsel to endeavor to reach agreements, as
far as possible, in all cases upon statements
of facts, with a view to reducing to the
smallest compass the oral evidence necessary
to be taken.
Judge Walker in the district court,
at Sioux City, Iowa, set for trial Sept. 5,
the case of Fred Munchrath, one of the de
fendants charged with the murder of Rev.
Dr. Haddock. The defense made a strong
effort to have the Arensdorf case, which
was tried at the March term, again called,
but the state elected to have Munchrath's
case tried next. It is believed that the state
has a much stranger case against Munch
rath than was presented against Arensdorf,
and that if anything approaching an honest
iury can be secured, he will be convicted.

A Chadron, Neb., special says: Two
unknown persons attempted to make an
entrance in the night into the residence of
Mrs. John Botts. Upon being informed by
the lady that their presence was not
wanted, they attempted to force an
entrance, one of them displaving a revol

and fired, the ball taking effect in. the
abdomen of one and lodging in the thigh
of the other. The wound of one is pro
nounced fatal, the other uncertain. The
action of Mrs. Botts is endorsed by the
citizens, as she is a very respectable lady.
Sp or incest, practiced to a more than
abhorrent degree, Reinhart Stein, living in
a German settlement in Dane county, Wis.,
was sentenced by Judge Bradley to nine
years in the penitentiary. He has four
daughters, the youngest but fourteen, and

fessingto an intimacy with the two oldest in
the old country. Through a priest the law

est child a few weeks ago and he was at
once arrested. All of his daughters were
spirited away to Iowa before his arrest.
He confessed by the advice of his attorney.
:..At Moorhead, Minn., before Judge
Collins, argument on the bill of exceptions
for anew trial in the case of Peter Czizek
conviction of embezzlement, was heard.
Judge Collins overruled the motion and
sentenced Czizek to pay a fine of
