CERTIFICATES STILL. MISSING.
Suggestion as to an Improvement
in the Haw.
Washington, Jan. 22.— The missing
certificates of the electoral colleges of
fourteen states, which ought to have
been delivered by special messenger
Into the hands of the president of the
Benate before the fourth Monday in
January, havo none of them come to
hand today, but intimations have been
received that most of them are on the
wav and may be expected tomorrow.
Obviously the intention of the law in
providing that one set of certificates
should be sent by mail, and another
should be forwarded by duly au
thorized special messenger, in
dorsed on the outside with the
names of the electors sending it,
was to provide for the verification by
the house of congress of the certificates
Bent by mail by their counterparts de
livered by hand by a trusty commis
sioned messenger. The failure of so
many of the slates to comply with this
obviously necessary precaution in a
matter of such vital importance as the
election of the president and vice presi
dent has called attention to the advisa
bility of the passage of a general law to
regulate the form of certificates to be
Issued in such cases, and also in the
cases of the election of United States
senators and members of congress. It
is suggested that a blank form appli
cable to each of these cases should be
established by a law of congress, and
that the state department should be re
quired to send ont a sufficient number
ol the forms to the stale governors and
once in four years to the electoral col
leges through the governors of the
states, leaving only names and dates to
be filled in.
At present, for instance, the certifi
cates of the election of senators vary
from a terse certificate, scarcely suffi
cient to authenticate the fact certified
to. all the way up to a document requir
ing an hour to read, embodying an ab
stract of the journal of the 'legislature
daring the whole of its sessions on the
senatorial matter, It is being strongly
urged that a simple certificate could be
presented to congress which would ob
viate all future dangers of failure to
properly certify the action of the elec
toral colleges, and which would also
simplify the credentials of members
of congress and senators. and
a bill to this effect will probably be
introduced during the week.
THE WEEK IN CONGRESS.
Liability That the Silver-Repeal
Bill Will Soon Come Up.
Washington, Jan. ---—The back
ward state of the annual appropriation
bills has impressed itself upon congress.
The senate is chargeable with the
greater delay in this respect. Not one
of the bills has yet passed that body,
although the house has sent over three
which are ready for action, it 'is the
general expectation that the anti-option
hill will come to a filial vote before the
middle of this week and then the appro
priation committee will probably take
the lead, beginning with the fortifica
tions or the army appropriation bill
and following with the, others
as raDidly as they are reported. There
may be a suspension of the order in this
respect long enough to allow debate and
action upon the Cherokee outlet bill,
some of the interstate commerce bills
and one or two other measures which
the committee on order of business may
decide to call up, but none ot these are
likely to be of. such a nature as to
arouse any party feeling. This will
probably manifest itself iii the execu
tive sessions during the week in con
nection with the McComas nomina
tion, whicii was the unfinished busi
ness when the senate closed its
doors. Thursday, by notice already
given, the senate will listen to eulogies
upon the late Senator Barbour, of Vir
ginia. The silver-repeal bill is the un
known quantity in all calculations as to
the business of the senate, and it may
become a live issue at any time upon
motion that the senate proceed to Its
consideration, but at this time no such
purpose is openly expressed.
The probabilities are that the house
during the coming week will also oc
cupy itself largely with the delayed ap
propriation bills, and will make an ef
fort to catch up with the record of pre
vious sessions of congress on these sup

NEBRASKA BANK FAILS.
The Capital National, of Idncolm
Closed by the National Bank
Depositors Caught for $623,000
and the State for About
Lincoln, Neb., Jan. 22.— The start
ling announcement of the failure of the
Capital National bank was made shortly
after 11 o'clock tonight, and with it came
the statement that the state treasurer
was caught in the crash in the sum of
$250,000. This news spread like wild
fire, and it was the sole topic of con
versation of tho hundreds who were
arrested by it as they were on their
way to their beds. The appearance
of National Bank Examiner J. M. Grif
fith, of Wahoo, who came iv on the
evening train, was responsible for the
closing of the bank, which came in a
few hours after that official began his
investigation of the books and papers
of the institution. It is stated that the
failure is a bad one. but the exact situ
ation cannot be ascertained tonight.
The deposits amount to aoout ?025,0U0,
and ot this amount between $150,000 and
$250,000 are state funds, for which
the bond of the treasurer will be liable.
The capital stock is $350,000. all paid up.
Cashier R. C. Outcalt stated that the as
sets would protect the depositors, but
there is great doubt expressed as to the
truth* of this statement. Capt. J. E.
Hill, o.\>state treasurer, in discussing
the situation, could not refrain from
expressing a feeling of relief that
he Had been lucky enough to
turn his office over to his successor be
fore the crash came. In this connection
it may be stated that the bond given by
Treasurer Hartley was for $3,100,000,
which was $000,000 more than required
by law. His bond includes nearly all
the banks in Lincoln, two at Fremont,
the Leaner and Girard, of Columbus,
and the Globe Loan and Trust company,
State Treasurer Bartley is out of the
city, and no expression as to the exact
amount of state funds on deposit can be
obtained tonight. An additional bond
is required of all banks on all state
funds on deposit. This was furnished
by the Capital National about ten days
ago. lt is signed by the- Capital Nation
al bank, C. W. Mosher and R. C. Outcalt,
and is therefore worthless, all of these
parties are swallowed up in the wreck.
The bank was constructed on the ruins
of the Marsh Harvester bank, which
died about eight years ago. C. W.
Mosher, president of the Capital Na
tianal bank, is a nephew of Marsh. The
affairs of the bank have been in
bad shape for some time. It
passed its last dividend, and
the bank's last statement showed
$32,400 charged to profit and loss. Not
long ago it was compelled to turn into
cash several thousand dollars of gas
bonds held by Mosher. It was thought
by local bankers who knew of the shaky
coudition of affairs, that Mosher would
pull through with his private funds.but
it is now known that he is swallowed up
completely. The wreck will be total, it
seems, and nothing will be left- after
the depositors are paid.
What has caused the wreck is not
known. A meeting of the other bank
ers was held this evening to provide
against a possible run on the banks to
morrow. A representative of the Omaha
banks came down on a special engine,
bringing offers of assistance, and- the
bankers feel equal to any contingency.
Afflicted With Leprosy.
Toledo,o., Jau. 22.— A dispatch from
Napoleon, a county seal thirty miles

has been caused there by the discovery
of what appears to be a case of genuine

Story of One of the Most
Awful Wrecks of Modern
St. Louis, Jan. 22.— Eleven " addi
tional deaths up to 6 o'clock is the rec
ord ot tho dual catastrophe at Alton
Junction since midnight last night.
The total' list of dead is as follows:
WEBB ROSS, Mattoon, 111.
HIRAM CORNELIUS, lowa.
EDWARD MILLER, Alton Junction.
TWO UNIDENTIFIED MEN.
WILLIAM SHATTUCK, Upper Alton. 111.
HENRY PENNING, Warm, 111.

CHARLES UTT. Alton.
W. 11. MILLER, Alton.
CHARLES PARRIS, Alton.

Of these all but the first six died of
their injuries after being removed to
the hospital at Alton, except W. H.
Miller and Mantz, whose dead bodies
were found near the scene of the wrecK
Fourteen Cannot Recover.
Of the injured, fourteen the hospital
physicians said at 6 o'clock, cannot re
cover. They are:
Otto Hagmau, Alton: John Fred. Alton;
Joseph Hermann, Alton; Henry Pilgrim, Al
ton: John Lutterell, Alton; William B.
Richardson, Alton; David Richardson, Al
ton; A. T. Frazier, St. Louis: Frank Barth, .
Brauford, Canada; Frank Scullin, Alton;
John Burke, Alton; William Miller, Alton
Junction; Murray, Upper Alton;
Rolotl', Upper Alton.
The others sustained serious injury,
but will probably recover. All the dead
were burned to death by flaming oil.
Ofthe fatally injured all are more or
less burned about the limbs and body,
but the worst injuries sustained are
fearfully burned heads and faces. All
are alsoinjured internally- from inhal
ing the flames, which scorched and
parched their, throats to such an extent
that their escape from instant death is
almost miraculous. The others injured
suffer from burns on various parts of
the head, limbs and body. When the
awful ness of the catastrophe, as
Related by Eye-Witnesses
who were fortunate enough to escape
injury, is made known, the only won-,
der is that the list of casualties *is not
twice as large as it is. The wreck and
its consequences was the topic of con
versation in Alton today. A repre
sentative of the Associated Press ar
rived at that city early this morning,
and nearly half the town was out on the
streets in small groups discussing the
affair. Each addition to one of these
groups was immediately asked: "What's
the latest?" and the response to the in
quiry would be an additional tale
of intense interest. It seemed as
if the people had just recovered
from the shock which the events
of yesterday gave them, and were just
beginning to realize the horror of the
affair. . By the time the bells were ring
ing for services nearly the whole popu
tion was out on the streets, but for the
majority St. Joseph's hospital seemed
to be the objective point, and had the
various clergymen, instead of holding
fortii in their usual places, gone up the
little hill on which the hospital is situ
ated they would have found congre
gated there a large majority of their
communicants. Immediately on enter
ing the hospital the hushed voices and
easy footsteps of the physicians, sisters
of mercy and attendants told only too
well that the ulace was literally the
Valley of the Shadow.
Six of those brought here for treat
ment yesterday have already succumbed
to their injuries, and for many others,
so the physicians stated.it was only a
question of afewmore hours of suffering.
The scenes in the wards .occupied by
the injured were even more heartrend
ing than yesterday. Lying on cots,
wrapped and swathed in cotton and
bandages until they almost lost sem
blance to human beings.and surrounded
by weeping relatives and sorrowing
friends, they formed a picture that
brought tears to the eyes of even the
physicians, accustomed as they are to
such sights. The moaning* of the pa
tients were piteous. Every few moments
some poor soul, writhing iv agony,
would rise from his cot, then fall
back suffering more intense pain
than before. Seeming to know
by intuition when the physician
was near them, they would beg pite
ouslv to be relieved from their pain.
"Doctor, for God's sake kill me. and
put me out of this misery," said one.
"Oh, for even an instant's relief from
this misery," • said another. Perhaps
the most pitiful sight of all was that of
thirteen-year-old Willie McCarty. Sit
ting by his bedside, trying in vain by
gentle words and soothing caresses,
while her voice trembled with the grief
Breaking Her Heart,
was his mother. The boy's flesh was
cooked from head to foot. His eyes
were burned out, the skin had peeled
off his face and head, taking with it
large portions of the flesh. The only
response the anxious mother received
to her inquiry as to how he felt was
"Oh, my head; doctor, why can't I
Some of the patients lay perfectly
quiet, not a sign or a moan escaping
"Poor fellows," said the attendant
physician, "they_are past moaning now;
will soon be beyond all suffering."
Only those thought to be fatally injured
were allowed to remain at the hospital.
All the others were removed to their
homes or to the homes of friends
throughout the city, that they might
receive the undivided attention of their
friends. Many volunteers, too, were
at the hospital to administer to the
wants of those there, and, if possible,
lessen the pain of their last few hours
on earth. So great was the crowd seek
ing admittance to the hospital that the
attendants were forced to lock the doors
and only admit a limited number at a
time. Many of these were mere idlers,
attracted by morbid curiosity, but the
greater number were there for the pur
pose of inquiring regarding friends. But
there were none of the exciting scenes
of yesterday when the crowd.apparently
rushed at tho litters being conveyed into
the hospital and snatched at the cover

behold the features underneath. In-

and each patiently awaited his turn to'
be admitted into the hospital. While
the Associated Press reporter was at the
hospital John Burke and William Miller

where they had been cared for over
night. Both are fatally burned.. It was
not until a visit was made to the marge
and the hospital that the horrible real
ity of the accident became apparent.
Here, awaiting the undertaker, were
the bodies of live of those who died dur
ing the night. The bandages had been
removed from the bodies, and the fear
ful ravages of the burning oil were
plainly apparent. Scarcely one of the
live could be recognized even by rela
tives. The oil, wherever it had touched
the skin, had burned deep into the flesh, <

found. Reports about the time of the
finding of Mantz's body of others miss
ing led to the finding of the other bodies,;
and when the reporter left the city |
other parties were out searching
for additional victims. The scene
of yesterday's dreadful catastrophe was
visited by hundreds today. Every avail
able vehicle in Alton was pressed into
service to convey sight-seers to their
destination. Every train running be
tween the two places was crowded, and
scores made the distance of four miles
on foot. Most of this crowd was at
tracted by mere curiosity, but among
them were many seeking for some relic
of departed lost ones, some trinket of
jewelry or a piece of the clothing worn
at the time of the accident. Others, too,,
when they went away, carried with
them mementoes in the shape of twisted
bits of the wrecked tanks, and still
others, mostly boys, scraped around in
the ruins of the baggage and buffet car
to see if aught of value remained of
which they could obtain possession. Of
the hundreds who visited the place,
however, few cared to remain long, It
seemed to some as though the shrieks of
Cries of Horror

hovered in the crisp atmosphere,and to
others the memory of the grief and
anguish of those who today are in homes
of mourning imparted a sacreduess to
the surroundings which even the Sab

man, Richard Grattan. A rumor that
he returned to his work this morning,
proved on investigation to be unfound
ed, and it is thought he has skipped
out for good. The total loss to the
company, so the officials state,
tonight, will be between $125,000 and
$150,000. lt includes the engine, com
bination baggage aud buffet car and
twenty oil tanks and freight cars ana
their contents. The fact that the three
palace cars were drawn away from the
wreck by a switch engine before the oil'
exploded, is an erroneous report, as
they were also burned. The railway-;

engineer, Webb Ross, to Mattoon last;

them from duty. -

New York, Jan. 22.— Th c elopement
of the wife of a prominent official of
of the husband, who had befriended
him, seems almost noble. Assis
tant Attorney General d'Heirry 19
known along the whole Pacific
coast as a lawyer and politician.
'His wife is thirty-two years old, about
eight years younger than her husband.
Mr. d'Heirry two yoars ago secured the
services of Edward G. Morse as a music
teacher for his wife. The wife became
infatuated with the musician. The hus
band had reason to doubt her until
weeks after tho elopement. - Through
the efforts of Mr. d'Heirry, with whom
Morse established himself on the best
of terms, the- musician secured many
Anions: the Wealthiest People
of Seattle. When his income had suf
ficiently increased, Morse sent to San
Francisco for his wife and daughter.
Morse's child died about a year ago, and
Mr. d'Heirry paid the expense of the
little girl's illness and funeral. When
Mrs. d'Heirry asked her busband last
November for permission to come East
to visit relatives in this city, he readily
consented. Without, his knowledge,
Mrs. d'Heirry sold two cottages which
belonged to her, on which she received
$10,000. Accompanied by Morse and
her daughter she went to San Fran
cisco, where they stopped at the Palace
hotel a3 E. G. Morse and wife.
While there Morse got all Mrs.
d'Heirrv's money and spent it lavishly.
Dec. 1 the guilty pair went to Chicago,
thence to Washington. D'Heirry and a
friend named Carson, a lawyer of
Seattle, set out to discover the former's
wife. After a long and tedious journey,
they located the pair in a boarding
. house at East Twenty-first street, New
York. Mrs. d'Heirry had left the
house, and, through the kind-hearted
landlady, Mr. d'Heifry secured an inter
view with his daughter. Later Mrs.
d'Heirry sent Morse to the house for
their trunks, where he was confronted
by the wronged husband, who demand
ed and obtained his child. Morse has
fled, leaving the terrified woman behind
to shift for herself.
Her Health Broken.
Mrs. d'Heirry's health is broken, and
once in the past two weeks she at
tempted to kill herself and child. When
face to face with her husband the wom
an was calm
"My wife," said d'Heirry. "seemed
almost to have expected me. She did
not cry. She said I could take the
child, who was in the next room, but
she begged to be allowed to see her and
kiss her once more. She told me she
thought the child, would be better off
with me than with her, but she
said that as far as she was con

GREAT FLOOD FEARED*
Ice Piled Fifteen Feet High on
Pittsburg. Jan. 22.— The warmer
weather and threatening rain hero and
at up-river points tonight furnishes
good ground for the gravest anxiety
among people with property interests
in or along the rivers, particularly the
Monongahela. A pilot here today from
as far up as Morgantown, W. Va., stated
that the conditions for seventy miles
were such that only the most gradual
thawing weather would avert a great
disaster. He said that what will be
literally moving mountains of ice would
come down with any considerable rise,
getting a good start in weight and vol
ume of ice with the opening cf the big
gorge at Morgantown, where the ice is
piled up in the river from two to teu feet
deep for miles. Water enough to lift
and detach the immense accumulations
from their moorings, and at the same
time furnish water to carry the moving
masses, is what he says the river men
have to fear at this time. Every one
here is apprehensive of a great flood
when the thaw comes. Many merchants
and others doing business along the
river fronts have taken time by the fore
lock and have removed their goods from
the cellars to the upper floors of their

Victor Napoleon to Issue an Ad-
dress to the French.
London, Jan. 22. — Prince Victor
Napoleon, not to be outdone by the Or
leans princes, is about to issue a man
ifesto to the people of France. He re
grets that Count d' Haussonville, In be
half of the Comte de Paris, succeeded
first in sounding a royalist battle cry
and asking the voters of the new re
public to rally at the polls in the in
terest of a new monarchy. In the forth
coming manifesto, to bo issued from
Brussels, Prince Victor Napoleon will
invoke the name of his great ancestor,
and point that a pure government, free
from Panama corruption, can only be
found in a Bonaparte dynasty. Like
Comte de Paris, he will ask that the
voters of France unite for a change of
government, but, unlike tho Orleans
heir, he will suggest that this change
take an imperial trend, with "Victor Na

Lake Erie Has 31ore Ice Than for
Toledo, 0., Jan. 22.— Not in the his
tory of the present generation has Lake
Erie been frozen as it is now. Special
dispatches to the Commercial indicate
that there is an unbroken field of ice
from Detroit river to Put-in-Bay. Fish
ermen have driven out fifteen miles
from Monroe and returned with the
statement that the ice was solid all the
way, and that it extended as far as they
could see. The entire Lake Erie archi
pelago is frozen up and teams are cross
ing the mouth of the Detroit river.
Fishermen have been compelled to sus
pend business. Considerable uneasi
ness is felt because,if the winter breaks
up as it usually does, there can scarcely
fail to be a very serious flood.
DYING OF TYPHUS.
The Disease Apparently Gaining
in New York.
New York, Jan. 22.— The board of
health reported the death of two typhus
patients today on North Brother island.
Alfred Taylor, who had been lodging at
25 Bowery, walked into Chambers street
hospital this morning and applied for
treatment. He was found to be
suffering with typhus fever, and
was at once removed to North Bro
ther island. Two cases of the malady
were also discovered in Roosevelt and
Bellevne hospital. An elderly man,
lame and apparently weak, walked into
the bureau of contagious diseases this
afternoon aud asked for medicine. lie
said he was sick. The man was de
tained until a health inspector arrived
and examined him. He was found
to be suffering from typhus fever
and was sent to the recep
tion hospital. John G. Allen,
removed from 83 Bowery to
the tent at Bellevue hospital on Satur
day, a typhus suspect, developed the
disease today and was removed to the
reception hospital. John Byrnes was
taken from Roosevelt hospital to the re
ception hospital suffering from typhus.
He had been brought from Merritt's
mission, 208 Eighth avenue. The tol
lowing deaths from typhus were re
ported tonight: Thomas Hughes, from
Merritt's mission; James Dougherty,
from 41 Bowery.
A Million anil a Quarter Bushels
Burned at St. Louis.
St. Louis, Jan. 22.— The elevator and
grain of the Carondelet Elevator and
Grain company was completely de
stroyed by fire at 12:30 this morning,
together with about a million and a
quarter bushels of wheat, which was
stored in it. The building and contents
were a total loss, and will sum up in
round numbers $1,100,000. Of this
$500,000 is loss on the building
and machinery. The elevator was
built in 1879, had a capacity of 2,500,000
bushels aud was owned by the Missouri
Pacific railway. It was leased to the
Carondelet Grain company, to which
the wheat, or most of it, belonged, and
of which H. C. Harstick is president
and J. C. Fears superintendent. They
carried insurance on the wheat esti
mated at $200,000 to $300,000. The
amount of insurance on the building is
$200,000. - pj..:

Special to the Globe.
Bismarck, N. D.. Jan. 22.— The Dem
ocrats and Populists are said to have
about completed a deal with Red river
valley Republicans for the election of
Judge McConneli as senator. Four Re
publicans of Grand Forks and adjoining
counties, it is said, have already signi
fied their intention to vote for McCon
neli the moment it shall appear that
their votes will elect him. He needs
four more, however, and it is a question
if he can secure them. It is the general
impression that Casey will be shelved
in tho next forty-eight houis, and that
the Republicans will hold a caucus and
settle the light. This they are being re
peatedly urged to do by Republicans in
Washington, who still hope to control
the senate, or at least to give the Popu
lists the balance of power.
TO EUCHRE POPULISTS.
That Is tho Only Aim of Kansas
Topeka, Kan., Jan. 22.— 0n1y sena
torial candidates and their workers re
mained on the field of the legislative
battle today. Most of the members of
the legislature passed Sunday at their
homes. The senatorial situation is the
only interesting thing in view, now that
the two rival houses ot the legislature
have determined to make no effort to
settle the muddle in which they lind
themselves until after the election
of senator. The senatorial situa
tion is quite as much of a
muddle as the situation in the
house. The Populists don't know
whether to nominate a Democrat or a
straight Populist — the Republicans
don't know whether to nominate a Re
publican or a Democrat, and the five
Democrats who hold the . balance of
power on joint ballot don't kuow
whether they want a stalwart Democrat
or a fusionist. None of these questions
will be determined until tomorrow,
when all three parties will hold cau
cuses. The Democrats now hold the key
to the senatorial situation, and they will
probably join with the Republicans in
the election of a stalwart Democrat,
either A. A. Harris, of Port Scott, or
Bailey Waggener, of Atchison. The
Republicans are willing to make almost
any kind of a deal with the Democrats,
if by so doing they can only euchre the
HAUSEK A POSSIBILITY.
Montana Liable to Pick Up the
Special to the Globe.
Helena, Mont., Jan. 22.— Members of
tho legislature are becoming restless
over the protracted balloting for United
States senator, because the fruitless
contest is delaying legislation. It is
learned today that all of the Populists
are willing to vote for any Democrat
except Clark. Two of them are now
voting for Dixon and the third
for Collins, late candidate for gov
ernor. Dixon, however, cannot se
cure all the Clark men, and so is
practically out of the race. An effort
will be made tomorrow to get Marcus
Daly to consent to the withdrawal of
Dixon, It this can be accomplished the
Clark men are ready to go to some other
candidate. There is a revival of the
talk today to nominate Hauser, who so
magnanimously got opt of tho way of
Clark in the caucus. Davidson, the sick
member, is expected to be in his seat
tomorrow, but an election is improbable
Le:ore Tuesday or Wednesday.
VAN WYCK MAY GET IT.
The Old War Horse Looms Up in
Omaha, Neb., Jan. 22.— The Bee to
morrow morning will print a letter
from John M. Thurston formally with
drawing from the Nebraska senatorial
contest. Mr. Thurston states as his
.reason that the interests of his client,
the Union Pacific Railway company,
demand his full attention, and he is
therefore constrained to forego his am
bition politically. This move will have
the effect of strengthening the position
of Mr. Paddock, but it will not give him
a clear track by any means. Gov.
Crounze is coming forward more and
more, and next to Paddock, has now
the most ' strength on the Republican
side. His candidacy is not popu
lar with certain leaders of the
party, who prefer to see him in the
state executive's office, yet it is given
out that when only this stands between
him and the senatorial chair it will be
removed. The aspirations of other Re
publicans are hardly to be considered,
as none of them show any strength. On
the part of the much
speculation is still indulged. Although
during the preliminary balloting of last
week the Populists' vote was concen
trated on Powers, it ls by no means
certain he will have the full following
of his party after Tuesday. *The Inde
pendents do not consider the ballots
taken last week as of full force, and
will insist on a separate ballot in each
house Tuesday. This may bring some
changes in the situation from their side.
The fact that no vote has yet been
cast for Van Wyck, who was supposed
to be the Populists' primal choice for
senator, is in itself sufficient. Many of
the opposition think the venerable
leader of the third party will walk into
the joint convention as soon as the can
didacy of Powers has become hopeless,
and. with the combined strength of the
Independents and a few votes from the
Republicans, win in - a canter. The
Democrats flounder along, dividing
their fifteen votes among half a dozen
candidates. They hope to secure a
compromise, In this event Congress
man McKeighan seems to be the strong
est man now in the race. If he can
consolidate the Independents, he Is al
most certain to get the Democratic
votes needed. But the best posted pol
iticians say there will be no choice . be

Special to the Globe. H*J
Huron, S. I).. Jan. 22 —For somq
time past trouble has been brewing in
the family of W. 11. Copeland, of this
city, and a well-known engineer on tin
Dakota Central division of the Chicago
& Northwestern railway. Left a wid

the love and sympathy of the woman
whom today is the ruination of his
home. The 21st day of Anril, 18111, Mr.
Copeland married his now faithless
wife, since which time he has loved,
cherished and supported, and to whom
was born an only son now about one
year old. During the married life of
the pair, Mr. Copeland says all was
love and peace until about the 13th day
of January, when his suspicions be
came aroused that his wife was playing
false to her marriage vows, which called
for an investigation from him that re

Amidon appeared on the street wearing
a gold watch and chain of Mrs. Cope«
land's. At- tiffs Juncture Copeland
sought legal advice, and he went to hii_j
faithless wile and demanded an ex<
planation of her conduct, when she in*
formed him that she was tired of hei
home and her marriage relations and
vows, and at once took the young
child and went to the Menzie
house. The next day Mr. Copeland
swore out a warrant before Justice
Grant, charging Amidon with carrying
concealed weapons, and Night Watch
Stauners was dispatched to arrest him.
The arrest was made and the prisoner
locked up in jail over night and next
morning brought before Justice Grant
and the trial set for 4 o'clock Wednes

prisoner appeared, after which it was
learned Amidon and Mrs. Copeland

the pair was learned, being in thd coun
