WEDNESDAY, JULY 12,18»9.
OFFICIAL FAI»*R OF CITY AND COUNTY
Republican authorities continue to
disagree as to the amount of money it
cost to elect Mr. McKinley. Their fig
ures vary all the way from 33,000.000
to $50,000,000. llanna publicly admits
the payment of 53,000.000. John Sher
man says that he understood it was £5,
000,000. Grosvenor puts it at 315,000,
000. Hut, no matter what the sum was
it came largely from the trusts, the
money trust included, and the amount
so advanced was a great investment for
the trusts. They never did and never
will make another contract as ad van
tageous to them as the one they mad«
in 18U6 with llanna.
The New York World has made a
calculation which Bhows that 1U trusts
control the lives of no less than 17,000,
000 of the people of this country. This
of course does not mean 17,000,0(X)
workmen, but means workmen and
the members of their families depend
ent upon them. Here we have
conditions where a few men, less prob
ably than 200, have at their fingers' ends
the weal or woe of upwards of ono
fourth the inhabitants of the entire
country. Such conditions bode evil,
but we presume that the trusts are en
joying no privilege not purchased and
paid for when they contracted with
Mark Llanna.
McKinley's Versatility.
President McKinley can turn things
around and shape his conclusions to
correspond with his desires about as
easily aB any public man in the country.

General Otis a Failure.
If General Ottia is responsible for
the manner in which affairs have been
conducted in the 1'hiiiipines he is an all
round failure in everything, except in
the manufacture of false and mislead
ing reports. According to his bulletins
he has been whipping and chasinc
Aguinaldo and his men nearly every
day for the past four or live monthp,
but a close analysis of his chasing calls
to mind the Btory about how a boy
chased a bear around a tree.
It would have been honester, and far
more in keeping with American
methods to have never established a
press censorship at Manila. Thn
American people can not long be de
ceived by manufactured statements,
and sooner or later the whole truth will
be known.
John T. McGutcheon, the Chicago
Rocord correspondent sent a long state
ment relative to actual conditions in
the I'hilipines to Hong Kong, where
Otis has no control over the telegraph
lines, and from there the statement was
telegraphed to the Record on June With.
Mr. McCutcheon gives General Otic'
review of the situation aB follows:
Matters are moving on prosperously
and the Filipinos are Rick and tired
of the war. The insurgent army is re
presented as a pack of brigandB under
robber chiefs, and these leaders tire said
to be quarreling among themselves be
ing unable to hold their forces together
much longer. They say that the war
would be brought to a close promptly
if the wet season would hold oil a little
longer. They say the number of troops
now at hand iB siillicient for every pur
pose. They Bay that business is im
proving and peace returning in spite of
Aguinaldo and his men. They say that
the scattered forces of the insurrection
have been deprived of resources and that
the insurgent leaders, acting only from
motives of Belli8h personal ambition,
keep up their spirits merely in the hope
which comes to them from the anti an
nexation sentiment expressed in the
United States."
The correspondent then gives what
he terms the situation as it is. lie
says:
"So much for the military view. The
oilicers in the field know that the Fili
pino troops are aggressive and full of
spirit. The thoughtful men in Manila
know that the rigid press censorship
and the Washington bulletins do not in
the least strike terror to the bosom of
Aguinaldo and bis men. Theoutlook at
the present time is more gloomy for the
speedy ending of the war than ever be
fore. The plan of making raids on the
country and then withdrawing the
troops again, leaving the natives who
have shown them friendship to be ter
rorized and prosecuted by the returning
insurgents, is proving harmful. It
alienates the entire population, thus
strengthening the insurrection."
The insurgents still have a good or
ganization, and their resources are not
materially impaired. The failure to
sweep the fertile rice country above
San Fernando to the coast has left im
mense resources in the hands of the
enemy. Therefore they can continue
war indefinitely while left in the pos
session of this valley and of the import
ant ports of the iBland.

STATE ITEMS WHICH WILL BE OF
GENERAL INTEREST.
Sioux City, la., July 10.—The local
authorities are taking extraordinary
precnutions to prevent further IOBS of
life in the Cnmerer-Johnson feud,
which culminated last week in the
death of John Camerer at Brown's
Lake, twenty miles from Sioux City.
Camerer and Chris Johnson, a Dane,
and a neighboring farmer, originally
quarreled several weeks ago in the
course of a discussion of the relative
merits of their respective countries.
Ccmerer was of a violent temper when
intoxicated. Last Thursday he drank
too much and opened lire with a shot
gun from his own dooryard on John
son's house. One of his shots smashed
a window and narrowly missed Mrs.
Johnson. Her son, Albert, answered
the bombardment with a weapon of his
own, and Camerer fell dead.
His sons immediately announced
their intention of taking up the quar
rel, and would doubtless have done so
but for the arrival of the officers. Young
Johnson was arretted and brought to
Sioux City, and his parents accom
panied him on the plea that they were
afraid to remain near the Camerers.
The latter was forcibly prevented from
following the Johnsons here to avenge
their father. If Johnson is acquitted
fhey will be still further incensed, and
a lierce light is feared on their return
home.

Harlmugh, aged 11, drowned in Cedar
creek, two and one-half miles below
town, Sunday .afternoon. Harbaughwas
bathing, got beyond his depth and Al
bert Hoover attempted rescue. He had
the boy in his arms, but the current
was too strong, and he had to let go.
He failed to get back to the shore him
self. John Hoover in the excitement
got beyond his depth and being unable
to swim he, too, was drowned. The
body of Ilarbaugh was recovered, but
the other two are still in the river. The
boys are all sons of farmers living
south of town.
IOWJI'H ITulied Ohiitttlan JParty.
Des Moines, la., July 5.—The United
Chrlotian party met in this city yester
day and nominated the following tick
et: For governor. C. D. Heacock, of
Brighton judge of the supreme bench,
John M. Ilelmick, of Dubuque super
intendent of public instruction, W. C.
Pidgeon, of Richland. The following
resolution was adopted: "We believe in
direct legislation of the people, and In
order to make a government—a gov
ernment from God through Christ—we
should be governed in all things, law
making included, by the standard:
'What Would Jesus Do?'"
Iowa In Need of Labor.
Clinton, la., July 6.—That there Is a
scarcity of laboring men in Iowa is
again proven. For the past few days
M. Sullivan, who has a contract to do
some grading for the Northwestern
Railway company at Odebolt, has been
in the city trying to hire men with
teams. He offers $3.50 a day, yet has
been unable to secure but little help.
He advertised in the daily papers for
men and teams, but all appeared to be
busy. It is an unusual thing to go over
100 miles to secure help at such tempt
ing wages and then be disappointed.
Novttl Award of Damages.
Des Moines, la., July 8.—Walter O.
Clark was awarded 9855 damages
against Edward Dicks in the district
court Thursday. The damages was sus
tained by Clark through drinking milk
from a cow rented by Dicks. Clark, in
the first place, sued for $5,300, and then
during the progress of the trial in
creased his claims to $15,000. The in
crease in the damage claims was the
result of testimony given by his physi
cian. He said Clark Is in had condi
tion, and is liable to die. It is sup
posed the cow has tuberculosis.
Sent Up for Sixty Your*.
Mason City, la., July 6.—Loren R.
Bone, '\vho three weeks ago was con

has been sentenced by Judge C.John C.
Sherwin to sixty years in the peniten
tiary at hard labor. Bone Is 35 years
old. An effort has been made by Bone's
attorneys to secure a new trial, but it
was refused. It is not likely that an
appeal will be taken.

Houston, Tex., July 6.—A corre
spondent Just returned from a voyage
through the Hood districts, says: "The
half has noi been told of the havoc
wrought. The disaster is so appalling
tliut description is not possible. After
fell is iiood will come sickness undoubt
edly and what a week ago was the fair
est part of Texas, is now almost a
God-forsaken wilderness. The waters
of the Brazos have for six days cov
ered Its valley to a depth of trom six
to thirty feet. Where a week ago there
were on every baud fields of cotton
and corn and thousands of acres of
watermelons and canteloupes, today
there is slimy mud over all the vege
tation, and carcasses of cows, mules,
pigs, dogs and cats, mayhap humanB,
for many are missing. Our party left
Bryan at sunrise, going to the Nava
soto bottoms and to a pofnt about
three miles from Millican.
Everything Uuder'Watar.
"Here we encountered everywhere an
overflow from the Navasota which
spread out fuliy two miles on either
side of the Houston and Texas Cen
tral track. Everything is under water
from two to seventeen feet. It looked
on all sides like a great lake and the
water was so high that for a vast area
it completely submerged the telegraph
and telephone poles along the Une. In
truth, portions of the Navasota bottoms
are even now a perfect sea, extending
four or five miles wide at certain
points. I saw hundreds of houses there
totally submerged and as many more
were swept from their foundations and
destroyed. The planters of the bot
toms are still moving their help and
whatever is left of thcirestock to places
whore they can be cared for. They are
nobly helping each other and taking
refuge wherever they can, some of
them seeking safety on house tops. All
the planters stated that the outside
world has no conception of the
floods or losses incurred by the d£*
struction of crop, stock and building!}.
Nearly every planter has built boats
and sent them through the flooded dis
tricts to render assistance to the people
and if possible save some of their
drowning stock.
Over 600 Miles In Length.
"The flood district has a length ot
over 500 miles, a breadth ot probably
fifty miles and in all this vast space
damage incalculable has been done.
The loss to life will never be fully
known, perhaps the bottoms were
thickly settled, mostly with negro ten
ant farmers among these has been
the greatest loss of'life. To show the
damage done the following estimates
have been made by men who are in a
position to know: Lives lost, from
100 to 300 IOBB to farmers, Including
crops as well as live stock, from $6,
000,000 to $15,000,000 damage to rail
roads and to country bridges, $2,000,
000 to $4,000,000. These estimates are
taken in the whole area. It is known
that more than sixty people have met
their death that many bodies have
been recovered It is not believed that
all of them will ever be recovered.
Death of Robert Itonner.
New York, July 8.—Robert Bonner,
editor, churchman and lover of fine
horses, died at his home, 8 West Fifty
sixth street, at 7:40 o'clock at night. He
was 78 years old. There was no or
ganic disease, and death was due, his
physicians say, to the shock of two
great sorrows—the death of his eldest
eon, Andrew Allen Bonner, from pneu
monia, on Dec. 27 last, and of his pas
tor, Rev. Dr. John Hall, to whom he
was deeply attached and one of whose
warmest supporters he had been
through all the troubles which led to
Dr. Hall's final retirement from the
Fifth Avenue Presbyterian church.

Manila, July 8.—The trial at Cabana
tan of the slayers of General Luna,
the Filipino lender, who was assassin
ated by the guard of Aguinaldo's resi
dence, Is ended. The accused were ac
quitted on the ground of self-defense.
The testimony showed there was a con
spiracy upon the part of Luna and oth
er officers to kill Aguinaldo and make
Luna dictator. Luna's death ncems to
have strengthened Aguinaldo's lead
ership for the time. Luna's support
ers are now outwardly loyal to Aguin
aldo.

pay additional taxes. The disturbances

of Mr. Reinhard.
Their road lay across the tracks of the
Big Four railway, which runs along!
the west side of the state fair grounds,
high board fence around the fair
grounds shuts off the view of all trains'
approaching from the north. The
crossing has always been considered a
dangerous one on this account and a
number of fatalities have occurred
there. The afternoon passenger train,1
arriving here at 1:16 from the east, was
about due. Several eye witnesses to
the accident say the

dent approving the findings of the
court-martial before which he was
tried. Oct. 3, 1895, Samuel F. Pague of
Company F, Fifteenth infantry, then
stationed at Fort Sheridan, shot at
Colonel Crofton three times. Two bul
lets pierced the colonel's overcoat and
ttie other went wild.
Pague Had llceu lirlnklng.
The evening before his assault upon
Colonel Croften he appeared on parade
and was under the influence of liquor.
He was offensively courteous to the
colonel, and even went so far as to of
fer him a cigar while he was reviewing
the parade. Colonel Crofton ordered
Lieutenant Paguo removed to the hos
pital, where he gave orders to have
him confined indefinitely. In some
way Pague escaped about 4 o'clock the
next afternoon and went direct to his
home. He entered the house and found
Colonel Crofton talking to Mrs. Pague.
According to Colonel Crofton's state
ment, he had heard of Pague's escape
and had walked over to his quarters
to learn if he had gone there. He was
asked Into the parlor by Mrs. Pague,
and there it was that the lieutenant
found him a few minutes later. Colonel
Crofton told the lieutenant he would
have to return to the hospital under
arrest, when Pague drew a revolver
and, aiming It at the colonel, pulled
the trigger. There was the look of a
wild man in Pague's eyes, said Colonel
Crofton afterward.
Ruithed Upon Dl» %tiailaiit.
The weapon missed fire and the col
onel rushed at Pague and pinioned his
arms, while he wrested the revolver
from the subaltern. The gray-haired
commander left the house with the
weapon, intending to summon the of
ficer of the day and the guard to place
Pague under arrest. Mrs. Pague tried
tb quiet her husband, but he managed
to get another revolver from some un
known source and reached the porch
Of his quarters as Colonel Crofton
reached the sidewalk. He raised the
revolver and fired at the aged com
mander three times. Mrs. Pague was
behind the lieutenant and gave a cry
of warning to the colonel, but did not
reach her husband until he had shot
twice, and then struck down the arm
supporting the revolver. Two of the
shots passed through the overcoat of
the colonel, while the third buried it
self In the ground at his feet. Before
Pague could fire again Colonel Crof
ton, who never lost his cool-headed
ness, was upon his assailant, and other
officers came to his aid.
Il«tnlRtied from Service.
Lieutenant Pague was placed under
arrest and ordered confined to the
guardhouse in a solitary cell. That
aight Post Surgeon Girard examined
the prisoner and pronounced him vio
lently insane and ordered him sent to
the hospital. A court-martial was or
dered by the department commander
fend the result was that Pague was
found guilty of assaulting a superior
and was ordered dismissed from the
ferylce. This finding was approved by
the president and Jan. 2, 1896, he was
formally dismissed from the army.
Meantime, Mrs. Pague went cast and
procured a divorce from her husband
He followed her east, but failed to ef
fect a reconcilintion and subsequently
returned to Chicago, where he has in
dulged in liquor to excess.
Was *on III' Oliio.
Pague was born In Ohio and received
bis appointed to the military academy
at West Point from that state. He
graduated June 15, lS7(i, and entered
the actual service as a second lieuten
ant. He was connected with the Fif
teenth infantry for number of years
and had been stationed at posts all
over the west. When the regiment was
consolidated at Fort Sheridan he was
attached to Company as a first lieu
tennt. Previous to the shooting Pague
bad displayed no animosity toward his
eolonel, and. in fact, he had referred to
him on several occasions as bis best
friend.

Attempt to Hold ITp a Chicago Train—
Throe Women Hurl.
Chippewa Falls, Wis., July 10.—A des
perate attempt was made by three
men to hold up the limited passenger
train on the Chicago, St. Paul, Minne
apolis and Omaha railroad, running
between Duluth and Chicago, near the
village of Chctek, Barron county, thir
ty miles north of this city. The train
was fired into three times. Two bul
lets went through the windows of one
of the coaches and lodged In the roof
of the car. Two women were struck
in the face by broken glass, and an
other. Mrs. J. W. Sherron, a resident of
Cadott, Wis., had one eye cut In a ter
rible manner. It is thought that she
will lose the sight of the eye.
Another bullet went through the en
gine window and barely missed strik
ing the engineer. The engineer opened
the throttle wide, and although mora
shots were fired at the train, none
struck it. All the passengers became
panic-stricken and the conductor with
difficulty restored order. The sheriff
of Barron county was notified by wire
from here, and with a posse of fifty
men has gone to the scene of the at
tempted hold-up to capture the bandits.

Paris, July 10.—Emll Zoln has sent
the following signed dispatch to a New
York newspaper:
"Positively I will not write of the
Dreyfus case for any newspaper what
soever—at least not until the coming
trial is over. What J, had to say I
have said. I consider that I am no
longer needed. I withdraw.
"1 learn that a man in New York
loasts that he has a contract with me
to write a play about Dreyfus. An
other man talks of my making a lec
ture tour through the United States.
Not Aiitlioi-t/.i-d l'ul»ltaliotiM.
"1 learn, too. that certain newspa
pers have recently published articles
signed with my name and are an
nouncing that they will publish other
articles by me. All such statements
are absolutely impositions. I have
never authorized these statements nor
the publication of these articles. When
I raised my voice for Dreyfus 1 merely
desired to rally the defenders of Jus
tice then busy elsewhere to draw at
tention to a crime the accomplishing
of which was not to be tolerated.
Moral ld**a In Polltlcx.
"I am glad I did it. Because the
agitation probably saved an innocent
man. Because it proved Invaluable in
educating the masses. Because this
revision marks the entrance of the
moral idea into politics, where prin
ciple is too constantly sacrificed to im
mediate expediency and mutual tolera
tion. Such a sacrifice, in the long runv
is ruinous to any nation. 1 am glad
I did it. Should occasion arise 1 should
enter politics again.
In llamlH of Iteilor Leader*
"Now, however, my ideas on these
subjects are In the hands, of better
leaders of men than I am. These
leaders are amply able to make the
Ideas to fructify In this beloved, gen
erous France. Having no doubt these
Ideas will bear fruit In America, too,
I cannot Bee how any articles, lectures,
especially how any bad melodramas
I could contribute to the discussion
would help the good work. Therefore,
as despite what has been said I have
none but a literary ambition I now re
turn to purely literary labor."

Decrals, minister of the colonies, M. Ia
Soucas has been appointed command
ant of the penitentiary establishments
at the lies du Salut, replacing M. Dan
iel, who is called to other functions.
This formula "called to other func
tions," says The Figaro, is generally
UBe'd to designate the disgrace of a
functionary whom there is no Intention
of further employing.
M. Daniel, it will be remembered,
was the director of the penitentiary
and the guard of Dreyfus, who at the
very moment when the court of cassa
tion ordered by unanimity a revision
of the trial, sent a report to the ad
ministration of the colonies that called
forth a cry of reprobation by the whole
press, and In which he attempted to af
firm Dreyfus' guilt without other argu
ments than those which he drew from
the attitude, physical aspect and occu
pation of the prisoner.

FIFTY MILLION TOFFEE DRINKERS IN
AMERICA.
Why the Famous Firm of Arbucklc I r«i.
Control th« Bulk of the Coffee Trade.
It is estimated that there are llfty million enf*
fee drinkers In America. We have loug since
passed the mark of beiug the largest coffee con
sumers In the world, one-third of the entire cof
fee grown being used in Ameriea This propor
tion has been steadily growing since 1801 viu it
the total amount of colTee imported was mil)
79,000 tons.
From Brazil. Peru, Java aud Suinatru. Ceylon.
India Africa, the Philippines, and the islauds of
the tropical seas, bugs, bales and barrels pour
Into New York city every year by the hundreds
of thousands From New York they are distri
buted to all parts of the country.
But the greater portion of the coffee Imported
Is retained In New York by the famous Arm of
Arbuckle Bros.—the largest coffee dealers In
the world. They buy more than all othor dual
urs combined, aud the name Arbuckle has be
come synouytnous for Immense dealings iu the
favorite breakfast beverage. This has givon
them great prestige among coffee growers in
every jiart of the world and as large buying al
ways makes for good buying, it is not surprising
that Arbuckles' has become famous as the
standard of coffee values, a standard no other
house has been able to reach.
MIlttoDS of homes in every sectlou of the coun
try to-day use nothing but Arbuckles' coffee.
Tne test of experience has taught the careful
housewife that her faith uot only means mouey
saved, but that she IH supplying the best coffee
that money can procure for the coffee drinkers
of her household.
One Immense advantage possessed by Ar
buckle Bros, is that of belug able to deliver the
coffee berry to the cousumer with all its delight*
ful aroma and tlavor intact. This they do by a
process, ttie patents of which they exclusively
hold, covering the many little pores of the berry
thereby holding in its goodness. The Ingredi
ents used iu the process are eutirely wholesome
aud nothing deleterious Is used to mar the deli
cacy of llavor or taste.
Part of the success of Arbuckles' coffee has
been due to the generous aud unique system
used t3 popularize It. Iu each package of the
coffee there Is a list of articles. With each
package in which the list is found the purchaser
buys a definite part of some article to be se
lected by him or her from the list, subject only
to the coudltion that the slguature on the pack
age Is to be cut out and returned to Arbuckle
Bros. Everybody should see this list.
