DEATH OF MRS. HANS MARTIN.
This morning after an illness of sev eral months Mrs. Hans Martin died at her home on Chestnut street. It was thought that she was gaining in health and so although friends and neighbors bad been very kind, no one was with her when death came except her son. Although it was about six o'clock this morning when she died her son did not notify anyone until after nine o'clock. She leaves a sister and a brother living in the south part of the county. Thus is ended a life of bard work and faithfulness and many griefs. In her humttle way Mrs. Martin was a heroine, struggling against odds before which many would have succumbed, enduring hardships and mistreatment, bearing everything for the sake of her children. We trust that she is at peace, that after all the troubles and disap points she has found rest, that her little daughter is restored to her arms and that the light of God's countenance shines upon them both. It is not alone in the ranks of the rich, the educated, the elite, that we find true worth,in the life of this poor wast^ woman may be found a lesson of faithfulness and sim ple honesty that deserves a martyr's crown. No arrangements for the funeral have as yet been made. In Behalf of Mra. George. Canton, O., Jan. 30.—The attorneys for Mrs. George argued the motion to quash the indictment against her for murdering George Saxton, the brother of Mrs. McKinley.

All arrangements had been made and,the contents of the thirteen jars were counted and the winners an nounced before 9 o'clock. About forty of our business men acted on the com mittees, four of our most expert count ers got at the Boy's big jar and fairly made the beans fly. Mrs. T. J.

Takeu in all the contest was the most succest'ul enter prise ever undertaken by Denison bus iness men. It was a lively, animated scene and was thouroughly enjoyed by all. The REVIEW wishes personally to thank all those who took part in the count and also the members of the band who so kindly gave their services. In thi3 connection we would also like to say that the orchestra concert to morrow night should be well patron ized. We believe no town in Iowa is better posted on the number of beans or ker nels of corn in a quart measure than is Denison. No one will know of the number of people who counted them on 130.^-TJjree robbers dynamited ih^ safe in the §tore of the KelIy, PVow company af Long View. Quite a sum of money was se cured.

Most of our merchants have shown their faith in it by expressing their willingness to join in The Qrand February Guessing Contests The coupons for these contests will be printed in our next issue. The rules will be almost the same with the excep tion of a few minor changes such as ex perience has prompted. The prizes will be as large if not larger, and every Revibw reader is urged to ta^e? part in this" carnival -of fun. In several instances there were I ties and in one case the winner got I there by just four hours and a half. It I will thus be seen that it is to everyone's advantage to guess early. Space will: not permit us to describe the scene as it took place last night, but the univ^r-' sal verdict is that the contests have been helpful to the merchants and to the people, and that by uniting the merchants it has aided toward that solidarity of feeling which is so neces sary to business success. Many did not succeed in the contests just closed, but by the aid of exper ience there is no reason why they should not win in the February con-I test, the announcement of which will be made on Fridav.

TREATY COMES FIRST. Opposition In Semite to Vote on Any Philippine Resolution. Washington, Jan. 30. At two p. m. the senate went into executive session. Objection developed in the senate to a vote of any Philipine resolutions prior to a vote on the treaty. Senator Allison called up the Indian appropriation bill. This motion was not agreeable to the opponents of American sovereignty over the Philip pines, as it would prevent action on the di-claratory resolutions prior to the vote on the treaty. Messrs. Jones (Ark.) and Bacon urged an early vote on the resolutions, which were attacked by Messrs. Chandler and Carter as at tempting to mortgage future con gresses and as needlessly and mischiev ously tying our hauds as to the Philip pines. Washington, Jan. 30.—A house joint resolution authorizing the secretary of war to admit to West Point military academy as a student Andres Pouie Ruego, of Venezuela, was adopted.

The docu ments are numerous, as there were tel egrams, letters and reports for almost every day the commissioners were in Paris. One of the first cablegrams from the president instructed them to demand the cession of Luzon island only of the Philippines, and he told them that full sovereignty should come with it. The reading of the correspondence received the closest attention from the senators. Adversely Reported.

FRENCH CHAMBER OF DEPUTIES ACTS. Sends the Government Bill Slaking the Needed Provisions to a Com mlttee by Vote of 346 to ISO—Lively Scenes During Consideration ot the Measure. Paris, Jan. 30.—The chamber of dep- ,yjj uties Monday by a vote of 346 to 189 adopted the government's proposal to submit to the committee entrusted with such matters the bill providing that cases of trial revision shall be brought before tlfe united sections of the court of cassation. The report of M. Mazau, first presi dent of the court of cassation, on the charges of M. Quesnay de Beaurepaire, the former president of the civil section of that body, will be read before tha committee. The minister of justice, M. Lebret, introduced the bill and asked that it be sent to a committee. It was read amid profound silence. The preamble of the measure, de- '4»i claring that the bill was one necessary for peace and to restore calm in the country, was greeted with applause from the center and murmurs from the extreme left. M. Georges Berry, representing the first division ot the Seine, said the chamber was iiot aware why the gov ernment introduced the bill, and asked for the official publication of the evi dence in the case of M. Bard, who re ported on the Dreyfus case to the court of cassation. (Cheers.) The premier, M. Dupuy, said he did not wish the chamber to vote in the dark. He was desirous that full light be thrown on the subject, and. therte fore, the government-would submit to jV the committee the complete documents in the case. (Cheers.) The premier then asked the chamber to proceed with the discussion of the |J budget. M. Massubuau, rallied lypub^ & lican, representing the Esnalio'n dis trict of Aveyron, expressed surprise that the criminal chamber of the court was allowed to continue the revision inquiry. (Leftist"protests.) M. Millerand, radical socialist, first district of the Seine, reproached the government with interrupting tha course of justice and with placing tha matter in the hands of the chamber, which, he added, meant that hence forth it would be impossible for any-r Mj thing to be kept secret, and it woUldr be necessary to publish everything. (Leftist applause.) The premier replied that the com mittee would* have full power to ask for the publication of the documents, and the government would not object.. If the chamber voted the bill, all the documents referring to the inquiry would have to be submitted to a'll the .members of the court of cassation. He added: "This matter can be threshed out later and the government will th^n be willing to reply to all ques tions." pft M. Faure, nationalist member for the first division of Algeria, demanded, that the bill be sent to the special com? mittee, "thereby preventing the crim inal court, whose impartiality is sus pected, of taking part in the final de^ cision on the revision." These remarks caused an uproar in1 the chamber. J The minister of justice replied that thf- conclusions of M. Mazau's report set aside any question as to the sinceri- .•. ty and rectitude of the magistrates. The chamber then rejected by a vote of 3-4G to 189 M. Faure's demand and adopted the government's proposal to send the bill to the comnjittee intrusted' with such matters. The house then proceeded to discuss the budget. tr». Stanford as Kxecutrix. San Francisco, Jan. 30.—A review of the work of Mtfs. Jane L. Stanford, as executrix of the estate of the late Le land Stanford, shows that she handled property valued nt $24,Sfi9,245.
