IT WON'T GO DOWN.
Tke Ialaa'a Weak Attempt t Jastiry
- the . A. B. Past BlePheefera.
The Union makes a very weak and in
effectual attempt this morning to., sua
tain Rot. McPneetera and the clique run
Dins: the local post of the U. A. R. at the
present time in regard to the memorial
day expenses. If, as the Union says,
"the members of the G. A. It. post do not
desire to be held responsible for Mr. Mc
Pbeetera' omissions or commissions, and
believe him perfectly able to defend him
self, and therefore do not wish to be
a stump over which the A bods or any
one else can, gratify themselves in pun
is h ing," why did the post take the trou
ble of passing those resolutions at Mod
day night's meeting? It seems as though
the post has gone to considerable trouble
to champion McPheeters' cause, instead
of being neutral in the matter.
The Union wants to know why the
, Abuub or someone else doesn't raise
fuss about the $100 surplus from the last
Fourth of Julr celebration and ask for
that to be refunded. That is not a par
allelcase at all. The Fourth of July
money was raised by popular subscript
tion, and it could not very well be equal
ly distributed among donors. It was
different with the memorial money. That
was a direct contribution from the city
council, and the money should never have
been given. As we understand it, the
expenses for memorial services cannot be
very heavy. The hiring of a band is the
principal expense. I he flowers are
largely donated, and it has always been
the custom previous to this year, to raise
a sufficient amount by subscription
There are plenty of patriotic and hero-
loving people everywhere glad to con
tribute to such a cause, and speakers also
to whom it is a pleasure to jay tribute
to the silent defenders of our country's
flag without a monetary consideration.
A RETURN GREETING.

The Standard club, which is .an organ

for a barn which Rudolph Koch and Joe
Maxwell are building by contract. There
was not much left of the fence after
Crubaugh and his. workmen wielded their
hatchets awhile, and his neighbor will
have a good supply of kindling
wood. Warrants were sworn out
before Magistrate Wivill, charging
Rudolph Koch and Joseph Max

private property and encroaching on
grounds not belonging to their employer,
There has been bad blood brewing be

Found Meat Morning In the Street.
LaCbossk, Wis., June 34. Lena Webber,
W years old, residing with her father, John
Webber, a carpenter, at the corner of Ber
lin and 8t Cloud streets, was stabbed and,
It la thought, fatally wounded by a stranger
who was found In ber room shortly after 1
o'clock yesterday morning. The murderous
scoundrel escaped, and up to a late hour
last night was still at liberty. Lena and her
sister Kate occupied the same room, which is
located in an "L" on the south side of the
two-story frame building. About 1:30 yes
terday morning Kate was aroused by a
noise In the room, and on opening ber eyee
,w a man in the room.
Cool and Desperate.
The intruder was standing on the north
side of the room, where the girls had hung
up their clothes. Evidently he was examining
them looking to see what the pockets might
contain. Kate asked him what he was doing
there, and ho told her to shut her mouth or
be would blow her head off. She aaked him
What he wanted, and he replied that he
wanted money. She then told bim that she
had none, and be again cautioned her to keep
still, and passed to the bureau and com
menced rummaging through the drawers.
Brutal Attack on Lena.
It seems that Lena was awake while this
conversation was going on, or was awakened
by it She crawled to the foot of the bed
and climbed out and would probably have
been able to leave the room in safety had she
not stumbled over a basket that stood near
the door. This attracted the attention of the
burglar. Making a stride toward her. he
placed one arm about ber and with the disen
gaged band plunged a knife into ner Dacic
and drew it diagonally upward. The blade
entered a little in front of the backbone on
the left side and a gash about nine inches
In length was the mark left by the ruffian.
The wound was a little below the tenth rib
and extended up. The left lobe of the lung
is exposed by the laceration. The dia
phragm was penetrated and the severing of
the muscular tissues makes the wound a dan
gerous one. The chances for her recovery
The Dastard VJCacapes,
The piercing screams of agony uttered by
the wounded girl and the wild cries tor help
made by her terrified sister frightened the
murderous wretch. He dropped bis victim
to the floor and scrambled out of the oiwn
window lust as Kate unlocked the bed-room
door to admit her brother, who had hurried
to the spot at the first alarm. Other mem-
bars of the family also assembled, and the
wounded girl was laid upon the bed. Medi
cal aid was summoned, the police being noti
fied at the same time, and In a few minutes
the entire futce was in pursuit of the crim
A Number of Arrests.
Yesterday morning several officers went up
to Onalaska. On arriving at Doc lloore's
place a gang of about forty tramps was dis
covered. A few were captured auJ brought
here. On one of them was found a long knife,
with what appeared to be blood stains on it
Several other suspUaous characters have been
captured, but so far the police are unable to
say that they have a positive clue.

BETRAYED AND MURDERED.
A Tonne- Olrl Fonnd Dead on the Street
at St. Louis. '
St. Louis, June 2S. The body of a young
woman of about 20 was found on Union ave
nue at 5 o'clock yesterday morning. Her
face was discolored and several bruises about
the face and neck lead to the belief that she
was strangled to death. The name "Anna"
was engraved on the handle of an umbrella
found by ber side. On being taken to the
morgue it was found that the unfortunate
womau was pregnant
The Body Identified.
At the morgue some Jefferson City visitors
identified the body as that of Annie Weiss,
a girl employed as a chambermaid in the
Madison house, at the state capital She
was 24 years of age, a brunette of prepos
sessing appearance, and was neatly attired.
The post-mortem examination showed that
death was caused by a number or blows on
the head which fractured the skull.
Whit Her Sister Knows.
The detectives last night found a sister of
Miss Weiss, a Mrs. Hoi lings worth, living at
210 Clark avenue. She stated that her sister
remained with her from Sunday night until
Wednesday evening. The police are work
ing on the theory that the young woman met
her betrayer by appointment, and that they
drove around the greater part of the night
No arrests have been made, but the police
feel confident of securing the murderer.

New London, Conn., June 28. The feat
ure of yesterday's boat races was the ex
citing contest between Cornell and Columbia
and the sensational collapse of the Columbia
crew the moment- ttfey crossed the line at
the finish. When the crew stopped rowing
six of the men fell back In a dead faint from
exhaustion. Five of the six men recovered
consciousness in a few minutes, but the
sixth, Meikleham, remained unconscious half
hour. As soon as his critical condition
was observed by the officials they steamed
to the tug Wellington and brought a physi
cian to attend htm. The six men were then
lifted out of their shell and placed on board
the Carrie Goodwin.
The Other Two Rowers Sneenmb.
While these transfers were being made the
two other men in the Columbia boat also
fainted and had to be assisted out of their
boat When the Columbia's launch arrived
at their quarters the entire Columbia crew
were lit ted out and carried to their rooms

shape. They bad been rowed to s standstill
and had completely broken down. Tuttle

- Details of the Baee.
The Cornell, Pennsylvania, and Columbia
crews came into position at 7:30 for the three-
cornered race. When the word was given
Pennsylvania caught the. water first and
gained a lead of half a length. This they
could not hold, and Cornell quickly dashed
to the front taking the lead a full length.
They managed to increase their lead to two
lengths, finishing in an apparently fresh con
dition. For the last half mile Columbia's
stroke had lost its power, and it was only by
the most determined effort that they held
second place. Cornell's exhibition was
remarkable, and is the talk of
the town. With the lightest crew on the
river tbey averaged a stroke of forty per
minute for three miles. Columbia and Penn
sylvania could not stand their gait and were
outrowed from start to finish. After the
race the Cornells rowed back to their
quarters, a distance of four miles. Cornell's
tune was 16:04; distance not given.
The Harvard-Columbia freshman race was
an easy win for Harvard, the men pulling in
nearly perfect form, and winning by two
lengths in 12:21; Columbia's time, 12:28;

supply, and nrges that the proper way to re
lieve is to place the money in the hands of
the individual members of the community.
with which they can supply their needs. This
step has been determined upon only after
waiting as long as the committee could for
the committees throughout the country to
indicate what steps they intend taking, which
thus far they have failed to do.
Had to Adopt Some Flan.
The finance committee has been obliged to
adopt a plan for using its own pittance, and
will soon have an accurate registration of all
survivors and will divide Its money among
them. This amount to be distributed - is
small, but will enliven the recipients with
hope that the larger amount will soon be
available by which they can re-establish
themselves in their wrecked homes and lost
Why the Step Was Taken.
We are making all the an-ansements here
that we can make to curtail the free distribu
tion of supplieof all sorts says the commit
teein order to check two large evils: First
waste of money contributed by the nttlon. '
mmense amounts of valuable material ore
coming here, the very things that are not
needed, while the things that are needed the
people are absolutely suffering for. Second,
to check the demoralizing effect upon the
manhood of our inhabitants. Those who were
good men before the flood are becoming de
moralized and upset by the fart that they find
they can live without work. Nor must they
bs blamed after what they have gone through;
It is only human nature. Nevertheless, it is
something to be quickly checked.
Twenty Thousand People In Want.
No committee, however perfect can satis
factorily and wisely meet the waut of at
least 20.000 people when each of the ,0 h is
different wants. Oranted that the nation has
contributed sty $1,000,000, the quicker that
money reaches th) sufferers the more of it
they wi 1 get. It costs money to take care of
the organization whioh distributes. The more
quickly this organisation effects its purpose
the greater the percentage of this assumed
$1,000,000 will reach its proper channel.
An Appeal tor Prompt Action.
We strongly urge you to consider the plan
we lay he lore you, and we would be? or you
unless you can suggest something better to
at onoe come to our aid with your funds. Do
not wait longer on the proposed action of
some one else, but act at once, and t tr your
self. If you do not approve of our plan we
stand ready to oaange or amend It We stand
ready to do anything that will quickly bridge
over the saflwrlags of this community.
Send on Your Representative.
We urge you to send your fund here for
local distribution, an 1 to send with it some
trustworthy representative whom we will add
to our committee, giving him full power to
speak for the fund you contribute. We urge
you to send some one prepared to stay with us
at least sixty days; if not a volunteer, then
someone whom you can employ and pay for
bis services. We may add that oi.r plan has
been submitted to a full meeting of the citl
ens, and has met with their unqaalifled and
unanimous approval. Please let as hear from
