HERO DEAD LAID TO REST
Victims of the War With Spain Interred at Arlington. FABEWELL VOLLEYS AT GRAVES. BodM* of 330 Who Died at Call of Cnnn try CousiEueil to Tlielr L,a«t Keating Place With Full Military Honor* In President MuKinley, his cabinet and •other high dignitaries of the govern ment, the commanding general of the army and other distinguished officers, vail the regular and militia organizations of the district and a vast concourse of ,15,000 people, paid the last tender trib ute of honor and respect to the bodies of •,830 officers and men who gave their lives on distant battlefields for their country during the Spanish-American war and who were mustered into the silent army that Bleeps in the last bivouac of the brave. The spot selected is in .the new addition to the cemetery, looking out upon the broad sweeping Potomac and across to where the glisten ing Washington monument rears its dizzy shaft and beyond to the classic outlines of the capitol and the burnished dome of the new library build ing. To the right rise the ramparts if old Fort McPherson, to the left the countless graves of heroes of the civil war, sprinkled with imposing monu ments to distinguished generals, and to the rear the stately old Lee mansion and Fort Myer. In this burial lot, which covers two acres in extent, in parallel rows, the wooden boxes con taining the caskets were ranged, sepa rated liy great mounds of earth. Over each box an American flag was draped. There was no particular order in the disposition of the remains, though an exception was made in the case of the officers. The boxes containing the bodies of Captain Egbert of the Eighth infantry, Lieutenant L. I. Barnett, Ninth infantry Lieutenant William "Wood, Twelfth infantry Lieutenant R- 8. Tarman, Sixth infantry, and Lieutenant Francis Greighton, volun teer signal corps, were placed at the head of the graves immediately under the eye of the presidential party. Of the others fully 70 per cent are identi fied. Abont 30 per cent are wholly un known, or known only by the regi ment to which they belonged. The funeral services were simple, but very impressive. Rev. Freeland read the military committal service of the Episcopal church. The Rev. Father McGee then consecrated with the churchly power vested in him the earth into which the bodies of the Catholic soldiers were placed. Ass soon as the religious services had been concluded, flanking detachments of the Fourth and Fifth artillery fired three ear-smashing, soul-uplifting volleys, and in the solemn hush that followed the salute the bugle sounded "taps." The last religious and military rites to the dead heroes were over and the presidential party and the military doparted, leaving the work of actual interment to follow. As each of the caskets weighs almost 500 pounds and requires eight men to handle it, it will be two rir three days before all the bodies are in their graves. In order to permit all the government employes to attend Hhe^erviccs, all the departments and federal courts were closed by an execu tive order of the president, and all tlio flags in the city were half-masted.

After leaving the calaboose the four men met Samuel Knipfle, a cit izen, whom they baat into insensibility. The four men then went to the bank, where they broke into the vault. They were unable to open the safe and se cured therefore nothing. They left no clue as to theii identity. llaiik ltolibur* Foiled. WAI'AKONETA, O., April 7.—Shortly after 8 a. m. live men made a desperate, though unsuccessful, attempt to rob the Sheets bank at Botkins. There was $10,000 in the inner safe, but the robbers did not get it. The citizens of the town were startled by hearing two explosions. An investigation revealed five men in an effort to force the vault of the Sheets bank. The men had stolen tools from a blacksmith shop, also a team and car riage from a livery stable. When dis covered the robbers were at work on the vault. Soon the entire village1 Vas aroused and the robbers deemed it best to get out. They piled into the carriage and drove out of town. A posse of 25 men followed on horseback and numer ous shots were fired, but the robbers es caped. The dynamite explosions Wrecked the building. SIXTEEN PAGES A WEEK—PART TWO. DENISON, IOWA, FRIDAY, APRIL 1859. FIGHT FOR GULF ROAD. Eastern Creditors Seek Aid of Federal Court. MEERY LEGAL TANGLE IN SIGHT. Possibility of a Clash Between Federal and Stitte Courts, With Two Sets of Re colvers and Different Court Rulings. Irfiiest Action Ends all Hope of Com promise and Hitter Contest Is Certain. KANSAS CITY, April 7.—Frank Hager man, attorney for the State Trust com pany of New York, the principal cred itor of the Kansas City, Pittsburg and Gnlf road, which did not share in the appointing of the present receivers, filed, suit in the federal court here yesterday to foreclose the mortgage held by the State Trnst company on the Pittsburg and Gnlf road south of the Missouri river for $23,000,000. The petition asks that receivers be appointed "to protect the interests of the bondholders," and asks an injunction to prevent any action or doings until they are named. The action taken by the eastern -op position apparently ends all hope of a compromise, and a bitter legal contest is certain, with the possibility of a clash between the federal and the state courts. With two sets of receivers and different court rulings, a merry legal tangle is inevitable. Both sides are confident of ultimate victory. Greer Appointed Receiver-' PAHIS, Tex., April 7.—On application of the Missouri, Kansas and Texas Trust company, Judge Bryant of the federal court, made an order appointing Robert A. Greer of Beaumont receiver of the Texas part of the Kansas City, Pittsburg and Giilf railroad. Mr. Greer is the attorney for the road. Miners Are Gaining Ground.

Rebels Are DigeHting Commission's Proc lamation—Jllalolos Begin* to Resume Its Former Awpect—Trannport Arizona Ar rives at. San Francisco With Many Wounded Soldier* From Manila* MANILA, April 7.—Colonel Smith, the governor of the island of Negros, re ports that a number of bandits headed by a man named Papaissio attempted a rebellion on March 27 and killed several officials of Jumamaylan. He also cap tured other officials and issued a procla mation calling upon the natives to rise and exterminate the Americans and Spaniards. Major Sims aud two companies of the California regiment were dispatched by water to the scene of the disturbance and Colonel Dubosc and two other com panies of troops were sent overland. On April 2 this force marched 13 miles and captured Labzid, the headquarters of the bandits, and destroyed the town. The troops also captured 35 prisouers aud scattered Papaissio's forces, thus effectually quelling the rebellion at the outset. There has been a week's respite in the hostilities, chiefly in order to allow the Filipinos to digest the proclamation of the United States commission. The rebels remain remarkably quiet. The sharpshooters of General Lawton's line have borrowed the Filipino tactics and are harassing the rebels at night, pick ing off some of them nightly. Malolos is resuming its natural as pect, business is going on, preparations are being made to establish a perma nent uainp for the troops there and the soldiers are cleaning the city.

Married, on April 5, at high noon at: the home of the bride's parents one mile east of Dow City Miss Madge Talcott to Mr. Roy McKim of Deloit, Elder David McKim, groom's father, officiating. Just a few of the near rela tives and friends witnessed the short bu? impressive ceremony. The bride was dressed in a gown of steel blue trimmed in white satin and ribbon. After the happy cpuple were made one the guests were invited to an ela borate wedding dinner served under the supervision of Mrs. Beach, a sister of the bride, after which Mr. and Mrs. McKim drove to Deloit where a cosy little home was prepared. Mrs. McKim has many bright and winsome ways and we are sure that she will be most warmly welcomed in her new home by many friends. The groom is well and favorably known in Crawford county and will make a happy home for his bride. He will teach near Deloit this spring. (The young couple, have the best wishes of a host of friends. VALUABLE CHICKENS. Mr. K. A. Thlem Receives $130 Cash for Three Chickens Shipped to Germany. Mr. E. O. Tbiem shipped three chick ens by express to Germany this week. They were beautiful fowls leathered like peacocks, but one could nardly re alize that they had been sold to a chicken fancier in Frankfort on-the ulain for the tidy sum of $is0. It makes one long to give up tbetstskof raising the standard of pubtic intelligence and go to raising chickens. If we ware sure of so good a market, we would quit set ting type and set hens. Mr. Theim has a world wide reputation as a chicken breeder, aud the product of bis poultry yards sell for almost any price he has a mind to ask. We suppose that German on the banks of the Main will take as great pleasure in showing his ''import ed" chickens as our people do in show ing imported stock from bonnie Scot land or horses of the Norman strain. Mr. Theim's chickens are still another proof of Sid Foster's famous saying, ''In^llthat is good, Iowa affords },he lesi." FUNERAL ANNOUNCEMENT, The funeral of Mrs. Alex Aebischer will take place a£ the home of the de ceased, tomorrow, Saturday afternoon, at one o'clock. Mrs. Carl F. Kuehnle and Mrs Wm. Perkins entertained the Episcopal Guild Thursday afternoon. About fifty ladies were present to partake of the delicious luncheon served by the hostess. The Guild is increasing in popularity with each meeting. The census list is crowded out of this issue, It will be completed Tuesday and with thax'orrections made the work on the directory will be rapidly pushed. By next Friday we will be able to an nounce definitely the result of the cen sus. the announcement has been delay ed in order to insure its correctness. After three days of hard work, the counci lii.s competed its work as a board of equalization. -Many changes were made in the assessments, and while we do not believe in the infalli bility of city councils, w« believe that' the members tried to be hont-st and fair throughout. The raise in valuation will reduce the amount of the levy, so that it is hikjhly probable that t^he taxes 011 each individual will remain about the same as formerly. The board meets next Wednesday, and if you have any kick coming, then is the time to kick it. The council is composed of good busi ness men, who are amenable to reason, and if you can convince them that they have made a mistake in your assess ment, we feel sure they will ba glad to rectify it. At any rate much more is to be gained by quiet reasoning than by loud talk and street corner oratory. As will be tot ced in anothercolumn, on account of the I'lethor.i of money the first National Hank ot'Jtbi.s city has been obliged to reduce its offerings of interest 011 time deposits from 5 per cent to 3 per cent anil 4 per L'ent. Money is so plenty that the bank is obliged to do tbis to protect itself. What a com ment this is upon the free silveiite ar gument that money is scarce. No wonder they are turning their attention to other affairs, and that the best in formed men of their party are trying to forget the hideous mistake of 1896. One effect of the lowering of interest rales will be that those having surplus funds will seek other investments than bank deposits. Money that has been locked in bank vaults will be put into new buildings and business ventures where it will realize a higher margin of profit. This will give more work for labor of all kinds. The lowering of in terest may be a hardship to some, but it takes no prophet to see that it may mean an era of the gre Ue prosperity. Cheap money is a good thing provided »1 ways that it is good niouey. I33UED IN TWO RARTS—TUESDAY AND FRIDAY- Attorney O'Connor Denison Wednesday. of Vail yisited Mrs. F. H. Morgan of Dunlap visited Mrs. J. P. Connor on Thursday. The Penelope club will meet next Tuesday with Mrs. J. N. Bradley. Miss Elva D. Bond is spending vaca tion week in Des Moines, inspecting the kindergarten schools. The Misses Tina Bornholt and June Slocum of So Omaha are visiting a few days in Denison as the guests of the Misses Temple. Mr. Brambly, of Paradise, one of Crawford county's most ambitious far mers, accompanied by his wife, was trading at the hub Wednesday. Mrs. Hunter of Dunlap is steadily im proving and Miss Hunter expects to be back among her Denison friends very soon. Read "The Boys" advertisement. They are well known and strictly relia ble. You can depend upon getting the worth of your money when you trade with them. This issue is devoted largely to ad vertisements, and the news is conse quently somewhat limited. We know our readers will not object to the pub" lishers having an inning once in a while. Rev. Robert Tweed of Manilla will preach at the Presbyterian church in Denison on next Sunday, both morning and eyening, in exchange of pulpits with Rev. Martyn. All are invited to hear him. Mrs. Wm. Brethower of Charter Oak township, who has been bed-riddeu all winter with imflammatory rheumatism, is now able to sit up. Her many friends are glad to hear that ber intense suffer ing is lessening. Mrs. W. A. McIIenry and Mrs. L. Seeinan returned Wednesday evening from a week spent in Chicago. Miss Abbie McIIenry remained iu Chicago visiting friends. During their stay In the big city George McHenry joined them and 8pent his vacation with them. Quite a number of Denison people are tejoicing over invitations received to attend a social dance to be given at Carroll next Friday evening. It is re ported that the Carroll boys intend making this the most sumptuous affair ever given in this part of the Hawkeye state, and the Denisonites have made up their minds to go. The home of Mrs. J. G. Wygmt was the scene of much mirth on Wednesday evening, when Miss Edith Wyeant en tertained her friends at a dominoe par ty. Quite a number were present, and entered heartily into the games. A delicious lunch was served, and the young folks voted it one of the most pleasant events of the season. The Bulletin is a trifle premature in its announeeineut of a new brick build ing on the REVIEW corner, although it is a fact that such a building is contem plated. The REVIEW finds its present quarters almost untenable, and will be obliged to have a more suitable build ing in the near future. The size of the building, if any be erected this year, de pends upon the deqaand for room. It would indeed be a matter of great grat-i ification to Mrs. Meyers, if she could erect a build'ng worthy of beautiful Denison, as a memorial of one whoso dearly loved our city, aud dedicate it to the use of the newspaper upon which the best years of his life were spent. The following statement made in re gard to the election of city clerk is a plain, unvarnished lie, and the writer knew it when he wrote the item. The item says. "Afterward balloting for city clerk was had, the senior pub lisher of the REVIEW appeared and de manded the election of Mr. E. F. Tuck er, threatening to bolt every republican ticket nominated hereafter unless his wishes were acceeded to." We wish to repeat that the above is a lie from beginning to end. The pub lishers of the REVIEW have not the record of being political montebanks and hermaphodites, as has the writer of the paragraph quoted. He should not judge others by himself. Within three years he has been straight democrat, gold democrat, straight democrat again when iu Griunell, and he now poses as sort of political kaleideoscpe, being all things to all men. We have already gone to too great length in answering this lie, and we do not intend entering into further controversy. The editor ot the REVIEW has never voted any but a straight*republican ticket, the REVIEW has never bolte^ ^r#pv^ljy?ftn ticket nor a republican candidate. Its party record is abo reproach, and all the city of fices in Iowa could not tempt it from its course. It is a reflection upon the members of the council if they allowed themselves to be bulldoze.!, and we know they were not. VOLUME XXXIV NO. 26 THE BAZAAR AND BANQUET. We use the term banquet advisedly for if ever a supper was worthy the name this one given by the Methodist ladies at the City Hall last Wednesday, certainly was. It was delicious, com plete and satisfactory. The display of fancy work and of useful articles was fine and the goods sold for good prices. The handsome sum of $108. was netted by the society and the committee on carpet selection can now be appointed. The presence of Gov. and Mrs. Shaw added greatly to the interest of the oc casion. Mrs. R. A. Romans did a thriving business, selling her delicious "orange sticks." In many ways it was the most successful church supper ever given in Denison. OBITUARY. Twice during the past week has our community been saddened by the hand of death. The death of Mrs. A. Aebis cher occured on Sunday, and on Wed nesday morning the soul of Mrs. A. Simmons took its flight to a better world. Mrs. Simmons had been seri ously ill for several days, but it was confidently expected that she would recover. Her death was therefore doubly sad for those loving ones whose hopes had been raised by symptoms of recovery. Mrs. Emma Rhodes Simmons was a native of New England, having been born in Grotton, Vermont in 1858. While still a young girl she removed with her parents to the pretty village of Prairie du Sac on the banks of the Wisconsin. She afterwards resided in Jackson, Minn., and later came to Denison, where she was married to Mr. Andrew Simmons in 1874. Three child ren were born to to them, two of whom died in childhood, and Miss Bessie, who lives to mourn the loss of a noble, true hearted, loving mother. Mrs. Simmons was one of the most kind hearted and loyal women of our community, and many there are who* remember her deeds of charity and^ good will with overflowing hearts day. To her-loved ones, mother, hus band, daughter and sisters we extend our most sincere sympathy, and eapecr»-,-^^ ially to the daughter who has thus perieneed the deepest and most ovef?.#^-1-' whelming grief that God in his Provi-v.V': dence makes us suffer. Mrs. Simmoitt will be greatly missed in church, soc al^it' and home circles, and especially wil^ '.-. her sisters of the Relief Corps mou'rn^V the loss of a faithful and efficient mem ber. it 'V• The funeral services were held this, afternoon. The ladies of the ReliefSV Corps held brief services at the home followed by services by Rev. F. W. Bateson. The Baptist church in which the public service was held, was crowded to its utmost with sorrowing friends, the Relief Corps and G. A. R. attending en masse. Rev. Bateson preached a tender and beautiful ser mon on the text "What Is Your Life." The pall bearers were all members of the G. A. R., being, Messrs. J. L. War basse, H. Scaggs, E. H. Smith, J. L. McClellan, M. N. Smith and E. Sierer. A large concourse followed the remains Jo the grave. 'iW-^ A second adultery case, an outgrowth^'.K of the first, from Deloit was brought before Justice Gulick this week. The defendant in this case is Chas. Myers said to be an old timer at the peniten tiary, and the co-respondent is the same Mrs. Franks who figured in the Jones case. The arguments were submitted this forenoon and Myers, was bound over and bond fixed at $300. Miss Margaret King visited fiieuds in Vail this week. SPARKS FROM THE WIRES.
