o'clock today at the residence of W.
H. Jordan, on Fourth avenue, at
which time Frank Zeigler, of Port
Byron, was united in marriage with
Miss Ella Snyder, of Pleasant Valley,
Scott county, Iowa. The ceremony
was performed by Rev. W. T. Graf
ton, of the Christian church, in the
presence of a few of the relatives and
most intimate friends of the happy
couple, after which the party partook
of a wedding dinner, and at 3 o'clock
the bride and groom took the train
for Port Byron, there to settle down
to the realities of life in a very com
fortable home prepared by the groom
on his farm a few miles south of the
Mr. Zeigler is a life-long resident
of the county, a thrify young farmer,
and a gentleman who well deserves
the prize he won in the erson of
Miss Snyder, who has numerous ac
quaintances in the city who love her
for her many excellent traits of char
acter and who will unite in wishing
her and her's God speed as they jour
ney through life together.
A wild tory comes from Black
Hawk luwiis-hip which involves a
: .i :. known farmer, his two sons and
j a i:ig woman who has been work-
in - 1:1 the family, but who is home
lying in a dangerous condition, as
the result of delicate operations made
necessary to save her from disgrace.
The old farmer is said to be resxn
sible for her condition, and so far
his sons have taken an important part
in the proceedings, even to the in
troduction of firearms. Criminal
proceedings may yet divulge all the
facts in the case.

through a rear window. A small
chain was all that was missed from

valuable possessions within sight and
reach. The room hail been ran

The Chicago Herald has the follow
ing with reference to the Chilean
rnissoin and the prospects:
The Chileans do not want another
Irish-American as Minister from the
United States. They have already
intimated as much to the new admin
istration, and it is said that Mr.
Cleveland will comply with their de
sires. Their experience with Patrick
Egan, whom Mr. Harrison sent as
minister to Chile, has been such as
to prejudice them against Irish-
American diplomats. Probably the
English influences m Chile are re
sponsible for this feeling. Only
one applicant for Mr. Egan's place
has appeared. and. like Mr.
Egan. he is an Irish-Ameri
can. He is Michael V. Gannon, of
Omaha, Neb., and he has formidable
indorsement from democrats of
prominence all over the country as
well as the people from his own
state. But Mr. Gannon has been in
formed of the existing prejudice re
sulting from the Egan administra
tion, and the consequent impossibil
ity of his appointment. He is.
therefore, out of the race for the
Chilean mission, but he has been ad
vised to seek another place of equal
importance. Mr. Gannon will prob
ably try for the Argentine or lirazil
ian mission. Meanwhile the presi
dent will appoint a native American
to succeed Patrick Egan as soon as
