Missing -Victim Was Well Known lu l oad du Lao. Wis., Where He Married Miss Kiuina Swift Was Interested In Uold Mine. New York, Nov. 20. Hon. Frank P. Arbuckle of Denver, chairman of the Colorado Democratic committee and president of the Cripple Creek and Cen tral Consolidated Cold Mining company of Denver. Colo., was found In an un conscious condition, lying In an obscure place near a vacant lot Just oft the sldtwald in a lot of weeds, on the west side of Eighth avenue, between One Hundred and Fifty-second ard One Hundred and Fifty-third street, at 2:45 o'clock Thursday morning. He died In the patrol wagon on the way to a sta tion boune without regaining conscious ness. That the man was garotted. robbed and murdered ts believed from incidents occurring a short time previ ous to his being discovered lying In the weeds. The ambulance surgeon who was called upon after the finding of the dying man ave it as his opinion that he was suffering from heart disease. The police, however, are of the opinion that the man came by his death at the hands of thugs. Ten minutes before Arbuckle was found a policeman passed the place on his beat, and he asserts positively that there was no one there tsfSSa Displayed a Large Roll. Officers sent out on the case went to the Atlantic casino, near where Ar buckle was found. There they had a talk with the bar tender, Charles Horstman, who confirmed their theory that the man had been fouhy dealt with. HorBtman paid that a man an swering the description of the dead man came Into the saloon about an hour before the time he was found un conscious and ca'.led for a drink of whisky. He appeared at the time to be partly under the Influence of liquor. In paying for the drink he displayed a large roll of bills and then pulled from his pocket a heavy gold watch which was attached to a large gold chain. After taking his d Ink the man left the saloon That Is tlie last known of his movements until 'ie was found In the weeds nearly dead. No money except a small amount Of change was found In his pockets, and he had no watch nor chain. It Is surmlned that the man got on an elevated train somewhere down town. and. falling asleep, rode to the end of the line. Tie then got oft the J train. It Is believed and walked down stairs and Into the Casino saloon. which Is at the foot of the elevated stairway. Iilfiitlttcat:oii Complete. It is believed that after leaving the asm. i the man was set upon by thugs, knocked down and robbed. No marks of violence were found on the body, ac cording to the police, except a slight abrasion on the head. This might have been caused by a blow from a sandbag or it might have been received in afall. No one living ne.ir the scene of the tragedy could be found who had heard ny unusual noise during the early morning. A messt nger sent to Freder ick Slegel, editor of The Tammany Times, brought that gentleman to the station to which Mr. Arbuckle's body had been taken. Blegel's Identification of the remains was complete. John Wilkinson of 264 West One Hundred and Thirty-third atreet, this city, who says he knew Mr Arbuckle well, has asked the corone for permission to take charge of the body. KNOWN IN FOND DO LAC.

Reynolds of Des Motnes was In town Thursday to see Senator Allison. Mr. Reynolds Is a young banker who wants to be comptroller of the currency. He has been a resklint of Des Moines about three years, coming from Guthrie Center, and the financiers o the state capital have been Impresed with tne ability he has shown.

President Cleveland Working Hard Cpoai Ills Auuaal Message. Washington. Nov. 20 President Cleveland Is burning considerable mid night oil. Nearly every night a light Is visible at his office In the White House, which Indicates that he Is hard at work on his annual message. He is writing every word of It by hand, and the stenographers and clerks at the White House are glad of It. The mes sage Is being written in sections, and will be put together In consecutive form Just before It goes to congress. All of Mr. Cleveland's communications to con gress have been distinguished by neat ness and clean penmanship, and the one forthcoming will be no exception. The president had a large number of callers Thursday, but excused htms If to nearly all of them on the plea that he was occupied In.. lie preparation of his message. From the fact that he gave long audi ences to Secretary Carlisle and Sena tor Morrill, chairman of the finance committee, and to rone others. It Is a fair Inference that the president's con- slderatlon of his message related ex clusively to that portion dealing with financial and economic problems. The DIngley tariff bill undoubtedly formed one of the topics of discussion between the president and .the venerable chair man or the senate finance committee, and the latter gentleman probably knows the prospects of the approval of that measure In case It should reach the president bereft of the free coinage amendment.

Ia., Nov. 20 E W. Cur ry, who died here Wednesday of blood poisoning, came to Des Moines early in the late campaign to take charge of the Democratic end of It, together with Judge Carr of Manchester, who was secretary of the state Democratic com mittee. He soon became acquainted with a number of the good fellows who are prominent in the Ors Moines order of the Elks, and he dec ided to become a member of that order. It Is Impossi ble to get at the exact facts, as the members of the order are all sworn to secrecy. But It seems that Curry was seated Wi k chair which had a device attached for heating It from he bot tom, giving the applicant a roasting, literally. One report is that the chair Is supplied with electrical fixtures and that a current of tlie lluid was sent through him. The object was to fright en him and make him Jump out of the seat, for the amusement of those pres ent. He Would Not Jump. But Curry did not Jump so the man at the supply turned on more fluid. Still the man sat still. Amid the laugh ing and screaming another supply was turned on, and kept on until smoke es caped from the body of the man, and then his friends rushed forward and pulled him from the chair. He was ta ken to the Savery House and medical help summoned. It was thought that his Injuries were not terlous. nothing more than a burn of a severe kind. Curry himself took that view of it and warned his wife, who was with him at the hotel, to keep the lodge matter se cret. The matter was kept secret at Mr. Curry's own request, and he pre vailed upon his wife to make no trouble. But Curry did not get well He got worse, compelling his withdraw al from the campaign, some three weeks before election. Ml wife and her sister attended him constantly. I I.- Were Solicitous. The members of the Elks did every thing they could to undo their practical Joke. They have watc hed and n UtVt .1 him, and nt a meeting of the order Wednesday committees were appointed to take charge of the funeral and to pny all expenses of hla sickness and burial. Amounting to $800. Curry him self cherished no grudge ngfilnst the order or the members, and Mrs. Curry was brought to see that the tnattr STM wholly accidental. A n uin st for the exact facts of the matter was made of several members of the order, but the replies were unsatisfactory. A promi nent member said: "Of course we cannot divulge the se crets of the li dire room. I see It has gotten out. however, and I will say this much: Mr. furry Was Initiated and there was an accident during the Initiation, and from that accident his illness resulted, and from that Illness he died. But Mr. Curry's constitution, I am told, was considerably Impaired, and because of that he failed to recov er from the Injuries whic h were pure ly accidental and which might have not been serious to an ordinary man." tins Jet t'sed. By another man. one close to the Elks of Des Moines. It was slated that no electricity was used. "It was not electricity, he said, "but It was something Just as bad and hot ter. It was a gas Jet." This man claimed that In many or all Elks lodges they have an Iron bot tomed chair. sheet-Iron, on which the man to be Initiated Is seated. In Cur ry's case a gas Jet was anplled to the bottom. Ninety-nine men out of a hundred Jump out of the chair the mo ment the heat afiects them enough to realize what they are dolus with him. But Curry did not Jump. He sat bolt upright. Then the man with the gi s Jet applied more heat, thinking to roast him off. But Curry sat still until hla clothes began to burn and smoke. Thought It Wm All a Joke. Of course the men who were manlD alatlng the gas did not realize what they were doing and thought It was all a Joke. As near as can be ascertained this seems to be the correct story of how Curry came by his fatal Injuries Either gas or elec tricity was used foe the roasting, and the preponderance seems to be in favor of gas. The mem bers of the Des Mo'nes lodge feel bad about It. and their order ts much blamed by many men who fall to real ize that the matter was accidental. Whether there will be any official in vestigation is doubtful, although som of the opponents of sec n t orders are In favor of that TM Klks are Incorpoe ated and therefor.. the members Indi vidually cannot bo held responsible. The men who held 'ie fras Jets are said to be more or less nervous. Will ( out inio the strike. Terre Haute, lnd . N v IS, The min ers' convent.

The report of Commodore Melville, chief engineer of the navy, made public Thursday, gives a detailed statement of the condition of all warships so far as their machinery and mechanical apparatus are con cerned. As a whole It shows that all the modern ships are in good condi tion, except In a few minor instances. In which machinery is being over hauled. The old-time ships are as usu al reported as antiquated, but most of them are said to be serviceable, con sidering their age.

Snd for tug No. 5, for the League Island navy yard, and plans for the machinery of the 20-knot and 22-knot torpedo boats, and for a re arrangement of the machinery of the Atlanta, due to the fitting of new boil ers In that vessel. Work at the New York navy yard on the new machinery for the Chicago Is progressing as rapidly as the appropri ation for that purpose will permit The completion of the boilers has been delayed, owing to the failure to ob tain the nickel-steel plates originally ordered, and to further delays conse quent on the failure of the manufac turers to deliver within reasonable time enough shell plates of nickel-steel of a satisfactory finish to complete one of the cylinderlcal boilers.
