Judge Conner returned from Iowa on

the almost universal sentiments of en
couragement and friendliness that are
manifested toward him in his candidacy
for renominalion next year in the tenth

all posted on these matters to be a fore
gone conclusion. The spasmodic and half
hearted attempts made by certain individ
uals to secure the nomination next spring
are not expected to result in anything but
a transient flutter of interest The people
of the "Big Tenth" have in the past
given evidence of being able to recognize
a good congressman when they see him,
and have failed to respond to thb appeals
of worthy but inexperienced men to be
permitted 'to supplant officials who have
proven their capacity and acquired exper
ierce valuable to the district. At no
period in its history has the ioth district
of Iowa been represented with greater
dignity and efficiency than that which
characterizes its present representation.
Many congressman have already return
ed to Washington preparatory to taking up
the congressional work on Monday, after
holidays elsewhere, and
the heretofore almost deserted hotels now
present a more animated aspect. The
object henceforth seems to be to hasten
the |ransaction of the routine work of

Navy circles are much

is nothing else so effective as epaulets and

unpardonable offense. "Tawdry lace and

It was my pleasure on Thursday to' vis
it the Franciscan Monastery on Mt. St.
Sepulchre, a little distance beyond Brook
land, one of tne suburbs-of Washington,
and near the Catholic University. The
sight is a novel and interesting one. To
enter the monastery and to go through
the various chapels and view the alters
and statues of the saints, the dandalabra
and furnishings, and to enter the guaint
grottos, and thence into the 'catacombe
subterrannean passages in which are re
produced the secret abodes and shrines of
persecuted Christians in Rome, is all an
experience not soon forgotten. This is
said to be the chief Franciscan monastery
on the continent. The church connected
with the cloister is unique in some re
spects, and is built after the byzantine
style of architecture slightly modified by
Italian renaissance. To describe in de
tail this remarkable institution would re
quire the pen of Ruakin and more space
than is alotted to a newspaper letter.
Attempt Made to Lynch Two Negroes
in Council fluffs Jail.
Council Bluffs, la., Dec. 29.—A crowd
gathered around' the county jail last
night, threatening to seize and lynch
Neely Zimmerman anil George Will- 1
lams, the two negroes under arrest
on the charge of robbing and attempt-
Mary Sparks and
her daughter, Mrs. Harry Sanders,
in front of the jail for a while and
then circled among the crowd urging
the members to disperse. Their ad
vice was met with derisive cheers
and one of the policemen fired two
shots into the air with the evident in
tention of intimidating the crowd.
Mayor Morgan also urged the people
to disperse. Some men arrived with a
rail from the railroad yards and the
crowd began, to surge towards the
jail. The crowd, however, appeared
to lack a leader. Later the mob made
a run for the jail and broke down the
front door with a stick of timber.
Those in the lead surged in through
the opening. The deputy sheriffs on
guard were lined up with drawn re
volvers and when they commanded
the crowd to fpll back the order was
obeyed. At this point Congressman
Smith addressed the crowd, assuring
the people that the accused would be
promptly tried. This, together with
the cool determination of the officers
the mob dispersed. As a precaution
ary measure the Dodge Light Guards
were called out to guard the jail.
PNEUMONIA RAVAGES A CITY.
In Seven Days Its Victims in Chicago
Chicago, Dec. 29.—With pneumonia
establishing a new death record in
Chicago and the county hospital so
crowded that patients are sleeping on
mattresses on the floor, and less seri
ous cases being turned away, a' serious
problem confronts the Chicago health
The many varieties of weather from
which the city has suffered during the
last week is blamed not only ifor the
many pneumonia deaths, but for the
crowding of the hospital in another
way. Within the last few days an-un
usual number of persons, injured by
falls on icy sidewalks, have been
taken 'to the county institution and,
though a new emergency ward had
been opened, all can not be cared for
Last week's alarming increase in
deaths from pneumonia is made the
subject of the latest health bulletin.
During the seven days ending Satur
day pneumonia claimed 139 victims

Deals Blow to Orfiifci Grain Market.
Omaha, Dec+ 29.—The Chicago and
Northwestern is the latest railroad to
cause Commotion by issuing a new
grain tariff, quoting through rates
from points on its line in Nebraska to
Chicago on an average of about 2
cents lower than the sum of the two
locals. In speaking of thQ action of
the Northwestern a grain man said:
"Just as we get everything settled
down comfortably and are preparing
to make a grain market here the
Northwestern jumps in and makes a
rate which undoubtedly will have the
effect of carrying all the grain which
originates on that line in this state
right by us to Chicago."

Cozad, Neb., Den 29.—About 1 a. m.
Samuel Burgess, night man at the
Pendee hotel, was shot while standing
in the office. The shot was fired
through the window by some one un
identified. The weapon used was evi
dently a shotgun loaded with buck
shot. The charge struck Burgess in
the face, four of the heavy buckshots
passing through the lower part of the
face. The wound is serious, but .not
necessarily fatal. There is no clue
as yet to the identity of the would
be assassin. The wounded man has
been marshal and night watchman for
the last six weeks.

China Asks for Information. 1
London, Dec. 29.—Rumors continue
busy with the Russo-Japanese crisis.
The latest report credits Japan with.
insisting that Russia shall reply to
its last note before Jan. 10, on the
ground of the rapid approach of Rus
sian naval reinforcements to the scene
of action. Inquiry in the best informed
Japanese quarter, however, fails to
find support for this stat^pient.
According to the Daily Chronicle
the Japanese government outbid the
Russian government and actually pur
chased the warships Moreno and Riva- ....
davia, both of which are now nearing
Completion at Genoa. Other papers
print a report that the Japanese min
idterial council has decided to trians-
fer $25,000,000 from the educational
fund lor emergency purposes.
Peking, Dec. 29.—Lien Fang, first
secretary of the board of foreign af
fairs, visited Russian Minister Lessar
and requested information concerning
the intentions of the Russian govern
ment regarding the evacuation of Man
churia. Minister Lessar in reply said
that nothing could be done at present
with a view to evacuation for two rea
sons. In the first place, the minister
jointed out, the cold weathfer made it
impossible to remove the troops from
their present positions, besides which
there were no barrack accommoda
tions to be had elsewhere, and in the
second place, he said, it would endan
ger Russian, interests to undertake
evacuation during the progress of the
negotiations between Russia and
Japan, for the reason that Japan
might seize the opportunity to invade
The Chinese government is so
alarmed at the prospect of becoming
involved in the seeming prospective
war that they would prefer'that Rus
sia should remain in control of Man
churia. The Russian commander ini- im
peratively requested the Tartar gen
eral to disband his militiamen and to .,
disarm them. The Tartar general is
sued an order in accordance with this
request, but it is understood the m^n
are concealing their arms, supposedly
with the Tartar general's connivance.
Japanese Privy Council Meets. .[ i.
Tokio Dec. 29.—An extraordinary
meeting of the privy council approved
the issue by the cabinet of an emer
gency ordinance authorizing the gv.ar
antee of the principal and interest of
an issue of 10,000,000 yen debentures
for the purpose of expediting the work
on the Seoul-Fusan railway, which is
expccted to be finished at the end of
next year. The ordinance* also pro
vides l'or all possible military ex
penses for the protection of railway
and other interests. It is believed
that unless, Russia modifies her reply
Japan will immediately safeguard
Korea, though such a step will not
necessarily mean war with Russia.
GROUNDS FOR DREYFUS' HOPE.
Alleges Copy of Telegram Was Muti
lated by Colonel'Henry.
Paris, Dec. 29.—The grounds upon
which Dreyfus depends for vindication
and restoration to the army have been
communicated to the Associated '.v
Dreyfus charges that a telegram y-"
from Colonel Schwartkopyen, the late
German military attache here, to Col- j"
onel Panazardelll, formerly Italian
military attache at Paris, as presented
to the court-martial at Remits bore
the date of April 14, when he was oc
cupied with the details of the mobili
zation of troops, of which the telegram
treated, whereas the actual date of
the telegram was the last of March, •'.
1895, after he (.Dreyfus) had been
tried. With a pair of scissors the late
Colonel Henry clipped oft a corner of
the telegram and thus the actual date
disappeared. Then Colonel Henry, ing^yg
his own hand, annotated the telegram
April, 1894. The colonel, however,
neglected to remember that tbe month
of April had only thirty days, for
