for establishing a heavy ordnance foun

The people of this section of the coun

at Washington on the subject of the
Kock Island armory. While no oue is
disposed to criticise the action of con
gress for doing what has been done
in other localities, jet there is a reason'
able foundation for the feeling that if
any further steps are tikon toward es
tahhshing an armory for the manufac
ture of ordnance, Uncle Sam should be
asked to place both feet where he al
ready has one so firmly planted. Rock
island has superb natural advantages,
and "about as near the United States as

Washington Citt, June 10. The kill
Introduced by Oatesof Alabama to pro
hibit aliens from acquiring title to or own
ing lands within the United States was re
ported back to the house yesterday in
dorsed by a favorable report from the
committee on judiciary. Oates made the
report. In it he states that the power of
the government to totally exclude aliens
from coming within its jurisdiction, as
has been done in the case of the Chinese,
no one questions, and that the sovereign
power certainly includes the leas one of
defining what property rights they may
exercise after they are admitted and dur
ing the continuance of their alien condi
tion. Mote of Warning Against Landlordism.
"Your committee have ascertained, with
reasonable certainty," it is Mated, "that
certain noblemen of Kurope principally
Englishmen have acquired, and now
own, in the aggregate about 21,000,000
acres of land within the United States.
This alien, non-resident ownership will, in
the course of time, lead to a system of
landlordism incompatible with the best'in
terests and free institutions of the United
States. The foundation of such a system
is being laid broadly in the western states
and territories. A considerable number
of the immigrants annually arriving in
this Country are to become tenants and
herdsmen on the vast possessions of these
foreign lords under contracts made and
entered into before they sail for our
Limits to Alien Ownership.
The report also refers to the large pur
chases by Kuroiiean capitalists of railroad
and land bonds. The committee recom
mends an amendment to the bill allowing
aliens who come to this country with the
intention of becoming citizens to buy land
at once, and to acquire an inchoate, title
thereto, which cannot ripen iuto a perfect
title except when the alien perfects his
citizenship, and in case of his death his
heirs, being citizens, may inherit his lands.
A Measure of Confiscation.
The bill also contains a provision thatfall
now lands owned or hereafter acquired by
aliens who fail for ten years to become cit
izens of the United States, shall be subject
to be denounced and forfeited to the
United States. The committee statesthat
it believes that no harm will result on ac
count of keeping foreign capital from the
country. The census of 1SK0, it is stated.

All That Is Known of Ella Cor
CAST UP BY THE MISSISSIPPI &IYEB.
A Shapeless Mass That Once Was
Woman Only Identified by the Clothes
and Jewelry The Ill-Fated Girl's Last
Journey and What Is Known of It Her
Disappearance as If swallowed Up by
the Karth Murder or Suicide?
Macomb. Ills., June 10. The mystery
connected with the disappearance of hand
some Ella Cordell, and her death by mur
der or suicide is not to be left unsolved if
the efforts of her heartbroken relatives
can avail anything. Her aged father re
turned Friday night bearing the sad news
that a shapeless mass washed ashore by
the Mississippi at Curtis Point, above
Canton, Mo., was the body of his loved one,
recogui.able only by her clothing and the
jewelry presented by her friends. Until
then few believed that Ella Cordell waa
really dead, and the impression prevailed
that she had voluntarily sought hiding
from t he world.
The Rotly To Be Exhumed.
All previous efforts to trace her where
abouts since her disappearance had been
conducted on the theory of her conceal
ment. Her death conceded, her neighbors
in Industry are terribly in earnest in their
desire to mete out justice to those who
compassed it, or wronged her to such an
extent as to cause her suicide. Her brother
departed early Saturday morning for Can
ton, Mo., to have her body exhumed and a
post mortem examination made, with a
view of finding whether there might
nut have have been other causes for her
death, heretofore ouly spoken of guard
Her Sudden Journey,
for tML'liter-n mnntha nrovinna t hp?
disappearance, Ella Cordell had been I
working in the family of lr. D. M. Creel, 1
a druggist in her native town of Industry.
A blonde of regular and prepossessing
features, plump form, and sweet disposi
tion, she was of retiring nature and
evinced little liking for social pleasures.
IShe dressed plainly and saved her wages,
carrying handsome bank balances both in
Industry and Macomb. At noon on May
lt she suddenly announced her intention
of visiting her sister at Do wen, in Han
cock county, and packing up a few arti
cles of clothing in a small sachel took the
daily stage for Macomb. She did not
draw any money, and had with her, so far
as could he learned, only $5.35 barely
enough to pay her railroad fare.
Took a Hevolver with Her.
After her departure a revolver belonging
to her employer's son, T. Z. Creel, was
missed. Miss Cordell remained with Ma
comb relatives the night of the ICth, and
early the next morning left on the Burling
ton road for Golden Station. Arriving
there, she found that she would have
to wait several hours for the Walash train
toward llowen. Then she went out in
town and purchased ten envelopes, sheets
of pajxT, and postage stamps, arid wrote
as many letters, but instead of mailing
them, put them in her valise. As she did
so. a revolver she carried was discharged,
the ball cutting her dress, and burying
itself in the floor. When questioned by
the station agent, she said the weapon was
discharged by accident.
Where Are Those Letters?
These circumstances made it easy to
trace her thus far. Xot one of the ten
letters written by her in the station at
Golden has come to light, which is used
as a strong argument that her death was
not I iy suicide. It is thought she had
some presentiment of evil, and the letters
were to relat ives, as her friends count just
ten persons to whom she would write in
anticipation of an event which might
cost her life. Just as the Wabash train
came in she bought a ticket for Keokuk,
iustead of her original destination, and
after she lxiarded the train all definite
clues were lost. The conductor dimly re
members her, hut says he thinks she did
not go as far as Keokuk, and the bridge
tender is positive she did not cross on
llecinninc nf the Search.
Xot hearing from Ella for several days,
her father wrote to Bo wen, and her sister
replied that she had not been there.
Young Mr. Creel offered $50 reward for
her recovery and accompanied her father
in a fruitli-ss search along the Wabash.
Nevert heless, not a few of her friends be
lieved the girl was at Hamilton, opposite
Keokuk, receiving medical treatment,
and this opinion gained strength, because
the proprietors of a "water-cure" estab
lishment there formerly lived in this
vicinity. There was reason for believing
ing the girl was at Hamilton several days
after her disapjtearance.
l-u'ritlnn of the Olrl.
Should a post mortem reveal either a
motive for her death or a reason for the
concealment of its real cause, no efforts
will lie spared to search out the truth and
punish the guilty. Miss Cordell was 24
years old, and weighed 140 pounds. When
she left she wore the dark brown dress
which was identified upon the corpse, and
carried a light, red shawl on her arm. The
theory of suicide has lieen advanced but
has not gained much ground, and it may
lie said her relatives do not take stock in
the sensational reports sent out regarding
the finding of a rifled grave on a lonely
island in Crooked creek, a tributary of the
Illinois river, and many miles away from
the probable scene of her death.

Pkokia, Ills., June 10. Little Willie
Dodds, aged 3 years, died a horrible death
Sunday night from hydrophobia. To add
to the horror of the situation, just as the

death, he sprang from the bed and bit his

on him. The boy was bitten about six
months ago by a dog, which has as yet
shown no symptoms of madness.

Chicago, June 10. If present- indica

mony of one of the highest officers of the

the transfer is the withdrawal of the offer
by the English capitalists.

couple quarreled, aud the wife shortly
afterward packed up her valuables and
left for the paternal rooftree once more.
While the party were discussing the situa
tion, Yernoa bounded into the flat unan
nounced and began swearing at his wife
and her father. He was wild with rage.
Mealio cried out: "Take your wife home
and take care of her."
Begins the Bombardment.
"Never," cried Yernoa, "I don't want
her any more." Then he closed the door
of the apartment, and standing with his
back to it pulled out an enormous revol
ver and began shooting at his wife, and
finally at any one who happened to come
within range. The caliber of his revolver
was so big that if Yernoa had hit anybody
the bullet would have stuck out on both
sides of the victim, and there would have
been nothing for the surgeon and very lit
tle for the coroner.
Some Successful Bodging.
But everybody dodged successfully.
The bullets went plowing through the
furniture and the walls of the room, but
the inmates crawled under the tables,
darted into the closets and shielded them
selves behind a big lounge in their fright.
Finally Mealio came out of a sort of
trance and bethought him of a big 44
caliber self-cocking revolver which he
carried in his hip pocket. He drew it and
pointing it at his fire-eating son-in law
or out of the window, or np to the ceil
ing, for he tells all sorts of stories be
Kapid Eiit of the Son-in-Law.
The effect was electrical. The son in
law was not hit and did not want to lc.
He tore the door open and fled wildly.
The police are now looking for him. Police
men were quickly ou t lie scene. They found
Mealio's big pistol on the lounge and car
ried it to the Mulberry Street station
house, taking Mealio and his friends with
them. Mealio was locked up.
WEST POINT IN ITS GLORY.
The Annual Exercises Preparatory to
West Point, N. Y., June 10. Yester
day was a day of pleasure and excitement
here pleasure for cadets, excitement for
the spectators. A game of base hall was the
attraction in the morning between nines
of the second and third classes. The Acad
emy board has been busily engaged in its
labors of working out the standing of the
cadets. The cadets have entertained their
lady friends; or vice versa, would proba
bly be putting it more properly.
Showing How a Battle Is Fonght.
At 5 o'clock p. ro. the cadet corps
marched out on the plains, about 250
strong, and for an hour illustrated to the
1,500 ladies and gentlemen assembled how
troops maneuver on the field of battle.
The troops were deployed in skirmish line,
advanced and retreated, rallied and re
treated again, firing as they advanced and
firing as they rallied. In all over 10,000
rounds of ammunition were used, but for
tunately for the spectators tbey were all
blank cartridges. The sight was a grand
one, and the boys showed the effect of
Practice with the Mortar.
At night the mortar practice took place
at 8 o'clock from a battery made up of one
15-inch mortar, three 8 inch, and three of
10-inch. The target was a red buoy lo
cated at a point near Target hill.
During the afternoon a detachment of
company E,- battalion of engineers, at
tracted no little attention by their practice
of military signalling from the grove
where, ere many days, will lie located the
cadet encampment of IS1.!.
SHOOTING OF EUGENE COWLES.
The Patient Will Probably Recover He
Surrenders His Daughter,
Montreal, June lu. Mr. Eugene II.
Cowles, of Cleveland, O., who was shot by
bis brother-in-law, C. C. Hale, bere Sun
day, as the result of a family quarrel, is
In a precarious condition. Yesterday he
called for Superintendent Kirk pat rick, of
the Montreal general hospital, and stated
that he was willing to surrender his
daughter Florence to his wife. He affixed
his signature to the following document,
addressed to Mme. Shultsen, of the Sacred
Heart convent: Pleaae deliver to my wife,
Alice Cowles, our daughter, Florence
Cowles, without delay, and consider this'
an annulment of my former order respect
ing the child."
Hale Beleased Fader Espionage.
Judge Tait was seen and shown the
above document. He considered that it
settled the abduction rase, but adjourned
it for the day. Mrs. Cowles was then com
municated with, and she received the
news with much tiatisfaction. Cowles'
condition is quite serious, more especially
because he is suffering from consumption.
If I die," he said to a reporter, "and I am
afraid I will, it will go hard with poor
Cleve Hale." Hale was released yesterday
from prison, in charge of two officers, and
is stopping with his friends at the Wind
sor. General satisfaction is expressed at
this unexpected turn of affairs iu the case.
Letters That Do Him No Credit.
Several newspaper correspondents were
permitted last night to examine all the af
fidavits that have been filed in the Cowles
case. The correspondence between Cowles
and his wife is of the most repulsive na
ture, especially the letters sent from
Cowles to his wife, in which he alleges
charges of the grossest nature, and which
she indignantly denies. Cowles was rest
ing somewhat easier last night, and un
less some unforeseen complication appear,
his recovery is most probable.
BLACK EYE TO PROHIBITION.
A Judge in Iowa Practically Throws the
Saloons Wide Open.
Mason Citt, la., Jans 10. Judge John
C Sherwin has made a sweeping decision
in the original package injunction cases
which have been pending for the past
week, which is by far the severest blow at
Prohibition the state has yet received. In
his decision the judge finds that the de
fendants, as agents of importers, could oc
cupy the building for the pnrpose of sell
ing the beer in original packages
to all persona except minors and
habitual drunkards, and that such
use would not constitute a nui
sance though the beer was drunk on the
premises by the purchaser, and that the
aalea, although shipped by the cases, were
sales in original packages. He granted a
temporary Injunction restraining defend
ants from selling to minors and those in
the habit of being intoxicated.
