Just over tbe lire which divided Clin
ton from Scott county and not far from
the village of McCauslanil, where was ats
tempted the murder and robbery of
Thomas McCausland a few months since.
Is tbe village of Browns', on the C , M.
A St. road, where on either Tuesday
night or Wednesday night occurred one
if tbe most bloody and brutal tragedies
tbat have ever shocked the people of this
part of tin- country The first intelli
Itence of the afttiir renched Davenport
Ute yesterday afternoon and the Demo
crat secured the following account of the
tragedy which is published this morning,
from the town of Brown.
A fiendish crime has been committed
In our midst, tbe victims being an In
offensive old couple living in their se
cluded home a mile east of this village.
Henry Nurre is a wealthy, retired farmer
widely known in this section and for
ninny years has held the office of justice
of the peace. He was very eccentric in
his habits and the rigid economy prac
ticed by both himself and wife verged
upon penury. It was generally under
stood that be always had a great deal of
money in bis bouse at all times, having
no confidence in banks, and this is prob
ably what incited the dastardly do ,1
Tbe crime was committed between
Tuesday afternoon and Thursday morn
ing. It is uncertain when, but all
signa indicate that it must have been
at lens! Is hours ago. When found this
morning Nurre wax lying on bis back in
the kitchen of his house rigid in death,
with a cut about two inches long antt
shout four deep immediately under the
point of bis left iaw. He bad bled in
ternally and probnhly lived but a few
minutes. He was sitting at the table in
bla aitting; room writing when attacked,
as la shown by two poola of blood on tbe
floor beaide bis chair, and got up and
staggered to the kitchen where be fell.
His wife evidently terrified by the as
sault fled up stairs and barnended her
self in an easl room where tbe villain or
villains followed her. and the apcarance
of tbe room indicates that a fear
fill struggle look place before she
was overpowered. The whole room
has the apiiearance of a slaughter
house. Mood being daulx-d all over the
floor and walls, the bet! clothing being
soaked. She was finally kMMj MM
less by two heavy blows on the back of
the head which crushed her skull. She
waa still alive when found today, but
there is slight prospects of her recovering
consciousness. Physicians are caring for
her. but she will certainly die.
Tbeo. Hailman, son-in-law of the mur
dered couple, offers l,m0 for the appre
hension of the murderers. There is no
clue whatever to the perpetrators. The
motive was robbery, as the combination
of bis safe bad been badly battered by
them and the house ransacked.

Ed . Cropper, of Rock Inland, well
known in this city, is an engineer on the
C , R. I. A P., and like agood many other
railroad men, he buys his butter, eggs,
etc . here in Oeneseo. A counle of weeks
ago he ordered some butter and eggs at a
tieneseo grocery, to he delivered and left
at me registering room tn the depot. The
vroceryman put me butter, which was in
rolls, in the bottom of the basket and
put tbe eggs on top, completely hiding
tue butter rrom view. The basket was
delivered at the depot and left there for
Eiu. 11 so Happened that there was an
empty basket in tbe reuistcrini? room
and tbe basket containing the butter
and eg us was set down beside it. When
i. i . . . . .
r.u. puneu nit train into this station
that night he went after his butter and
egga. He picked up the basket contain
ing the eggs, ami seeing the empty
basket beside it. came to the conclusion
that the butter hsd been delivered in the
latter, and that some one hud stolen it.
He had no time to look around, however,
and putting his eggs on the encine. he
started with hia train for Hock Island.
Ed. waa in the city again last Saturday,
and went to tbe grocer and told the etory
of the supposititious theft of the butter.
Tbe grocer tben explained to Kd that the
butter was under the eggs in the basket.
Ed said ht uad accused nearly every
railrosd roan on this division of stealing
tbe butter, and had told his wife that the
butter was stolen She bad taken the
egga from the basket juat as she wanted
to use them and of course had not dis
covered the butter He "set 'cm up" to
the grocer and made biro promise he
would say nothing about It. and said he
would g.i home, o,.t huttrr out of the
basket and tell his wife that he had just
bought it We hiippened to hear of it,
but of course we will aay nothing about
It, for fear Mrs Cropper might bear of It

house, Moline, Saturday night, and was
aaa'gned to room 11 The lUpnt,h says
at 2 a m. tbe night clerk delected the
fumes of gas, traced then, to room 11 and
remedied the trouble. Woelier. who had

far toward insensibility, denied having

It (in after bavin? cxttnmiiahed ih,.

Ufa to a partly open transom, allowing
the gas to escape, and attracting the
clerk's notice. Tbe stranger hsd been
quite mum about himself, and his place
of residence was neither put upon the
register, or divulged by word of mouth.
Tuesday morning he left the hotel at 7:30,
going away without breakfast. He went
to Sterling. Word has been received
from Sterling tbat A. Woelier registered
at the Gault houae, that city, Tueaday

tired for the night. There waa no open

found dead in hia bed yesterday morning.

Editor A Rons:
Bkamar. Iowa, March 10 Our pros
hibitioa frienda seem to think the amis
should not claim a victory. Governor
Larrabee baa said tbat prohibition is a
success. Half our jails were empty,
taxea were decreasing and our peniten
tiary prisoners had decreased one half.
Our frienda do not see the point.
Wouldn't Governor Larrabee be fooiish
to say his administration waa a failure?
for be waa elected ou a prohibition
platform. Our business men and corns
mercial travelers, whose business takes
them into every town in the slate, say
prohibition is a failure. Governor Boies
will never say it is a success, for be was
elected on a high license or local option
platform. Neither are half our jails
empty. I will now give a few statistics
taken from tbe tax receipts before probis
bition was adopted:
County, 4 mills; poor farm. 1 mill,
state, 3 mills; insane, mill. My last
receipt under prohibition: State, 2
mills, county, 4 mills; poor farm, l
insane, 7-10 mill .
It will take f9.056 more to run our
penitentiaries from July 1, 1880, to July
1. 1801, than the preceding two years
Taken from tbe mayor's report of the
city of Marshalltown for drunkenness:
1S86, sixteen open saloons, fifty thr. I
arrests; 1887, no saloons, si uv five ar
rests; 1888. eighty-seven arrests; 1880.
from March 1st to Dec. 2.r, b, 152 ar
rests. Crimes are on tbe increase
in the United States. England
has no foolish prohibition laws. Since
1850 crime baa decreased in England
abaolutely and relatively to population
Here it baa increased both absolutely and
relatively. In 1850 tbe ratio of criminals
to population in the United States was
200 to each 1.000.000 of people; in 1860
it was bo, , id l,0 it waa 1,169 to the
1,000,000. The consumption of strong
liquors does not account for it, for in
1850 we consumed 223 gallons per head,
and In 1880 only 126 gallons per head.
" LiLui , . a
wur prouioition trends seem to maRe o
headway against this resistless march
of crime. We became more tem
perate, but Crimea went right on
unchecked by the commendable
increase in sobriety. Will our probibi
tion friends please explain? you who are
willing to believe prohibition a success in
Iowa. The chairman of the t oard of
supervisors of Marshall county says
Pauperism is increasing every year. litre
is what tbe folk county board of super
visors says. Des Moines isinthiscoun
ty. Whereas, "the capacity of tbe build
ings for the care of the paupers is no
overtaxed." State prohibition laws never
did or never will accomplish their mis
-ion- Francis Murphy says, temper
ance is the only true prohibition and the
only kind taught by the bible. Adulters
ation of liquors and gambliug are thi
cause of most of ,he crimes. But when
you strike gambling you strike tbe
church. I am in favor of high license
law, tiut gambling and L'ames of chance
should he forever prohibited. The su
preme court of Michigan says, to exact a
tax for the sale of liquor is not a license
