Messrs. J. E. Montrose and Charles

some time for the tale of the National

Doatur, lad-, for a consideration
amounting to practically $G0,W0. The
deal has biU all bt cloned for a oou
ple of weeks, the terms having be

Mr. Townscnd. the new proprietor of
the National, is a hotel man of wide
experience. He was formerly mana

and was at one time in the hotel busi
ness at Fort Wayne. His fondness for
the business and his desire to securo
a property such as .Messrs. Montrose
and McHugh had made out of the Na
tional, led him to make such an advan
tageous offer as could not be refused.
The National is owned by wealthy re
oria people, and the transfer involves
the unexpired lease of the recent pro
prietors, together with the option of
IMana of Sr. Mont roar.
Mr. Montrose, who has had the man
agement of the property, will go soon
to his summer cottage at Old Mission

Cedar Rapids, where the hotel whic'a
bears his name is soon to be opened,
although negotiations that ho and Mr.
McHugh have on foot for another
hotel may alter his plans.

murder of O. M. Ruark last January,
but declaring himself innocent, was
later taken from the jail by the mob

the scaffold. The rope 'about his neck
broke as his weight fell on it and he
dropped into the pyre containing the
charred bodies of his former compan

tower again and this time his captors
were more successful in their work.
"I swear that I am not guilty of kill

As soon a-s Allen was dead, several
men rushed back to the jail for "Bus"
