Preston, editor of a publication known sis tho Sunday Sun, has been indicted by the grand jury now sitting, and was arrested by County Marshal Stewart at C o'clock in tho afternoon at his ofiico on Broad way, near Sixth street, on a capias issued by Judgo White. lie was taken before tho lattor official and secured temporary freedom on a bond wgncd by John O'Grady, his attorney, and A. P. Calloway as sureties. Preston manifested considerable sur prise when Marshal Stewart served tho capias on him. Ho remarked, however, that ho know tho grand jury had beon after him for a long time, and ho pre sumed ho was "in for it now." This is the first time Preston has been arrested under tho authority of a Jackson county indictment, although his disreputable (licet has been in existence more than a year. Tho statute under which tho indict ment was obtained is known as the McLinn law and was passed at tho last session of tho legislature to fit publica tions of the character of tho Sunday Sun. It makes tho publication of a paper mainly devoted to tho chronicling of lewd acts and scandal a felony, and tho punishment of the editors and publishers is a term in the ponitentiary of not less than two years or more than five years. It also makes newsdealers and newsboys who sell tlio sheet amenable, and pro vides for them tho same punishment as for the editors and publishers two to five years in prison. "Wlioro IsM'Curily? Ottumwa, Io., Jan. 20. J. E. Mc Curdy, a wealthy resident of Rose Hill, a village in Mahaska county, is missing. McCurdy left homo Oct. 1 with a couplo of Illinois friends on a hunting expedi tion down the Mississippi river. Thoy met at Burlington and hired a man of tho namo of Fry to row them leisurely down tho river in a skiff and caro for tho camp equipage. At Memphis McCurdy wrote homo that ho had reached his des tination safely and would return about tho 1st of December. His frienus thought nothing of his prolonged absenco till last week, when a letter addressed to the missing man came to Rosa Hill. In tho envelope was a largo check on Frankel & Co.'s bank at O&kaloosa pay ablo to his order and a letter from ono of tho hunting party showing that ho suj posed McCurdy was at homo. This alarmed his friends, who havo been tele graphing for faomo traco of him without success, and a brother has gono to Memphis in hopes of getting some clow to his whereabouts. McCurdy had with him a largo sum of mono)', and his friends fear ho has met with foul play. Ctmvictml of Llbttl. Prrrsnuna, Jan. 20. Tho Quay-Star criminal libel suit at Beaver, Pa., grow ing out of tho charges made in tho re cent campaign that a cortain bank cer tificate connected Senator Quay irre vocably with Bardsloy's theft of public funds, ended this afternoon in a verdict of guilty as indicted. Tho penalty is a fino not to exceed $1000 or imprison ment, or both. A dispatch received from Beaver pays it is believed that Quay will intercedo in behalf of tho de fendants. A Mull Contract.

Creeds Camp Still llonmlng Humboldt and ShIIiiih' Fortune Transferred. Denver, Jan. 20. There is no let up in tho boom at Creedo Camp. Hundreds of people are pouring in every day, and tho influx promises to be enormous when spring opens. Tho state land board went down Tuesday and laid out a townsitc, and the lots promise to sell at high prices. The snow on tho hillsides prevents any amount of effective work being dono on prospects, and no now discovery has been made for several days. Develop ments in a fow prospects aro going on with tho result of convincing many that tho theory of a blanket formation is tho proper one. Tho big properties aro keep ing up a regular shipment of about twelve cars per day, but aro retarded by tho inability of tho railroad in its un finished condition to handle tho pro duct. Tho most important transactions in mines of lato was tho salo of a five eightlis interest in tho Cleopatra to Colo rado Springs parties for $25,000, or at tho rate of $40,000 for tho mino. This claim is tho now discovery of tho Big Granger lodo on Bachelor Hill, and joins tho Amethyst on tho north. Tlie price is considered low for tho reason that tho vein is undoubtedly tho samo as the Last Chanco and Amethyst, both of which have $3,000,000 in sight in small workings. A mining salo of more than ordinary interest has just been consummated in tho Ouray district embracing tho trans fer of tho Humboldt and Sailor's For tune mines in Virginia's Basin to John B. Farish of Denver and a fow eastern associates, Theso mines aro located on tho famous Smuggler-Sheridan vein, one of the best paying fissure veins in tho state, ami are comparatively now prop erties. Tho Humboldt last year pro duced nearly $100,000 under leaso. Cripple Creek is still on tho riso, and the arrivals in tho camp avorago about forty per day. Tho Oold King un covered a body of ore this week that as sayed 227 of gold per ton and claims im mense quantities of it. Tho Bluo Bell also claims to havo struck a fino body of sulphurets that runs very high. A new strike, which it is claimed, will rival Cripple Creek, has boon mado about nine miles north of Canon City, on what has been known as tho mouth of tho Mil sap. Parties havo been working thero for about a month, and it is claimed tho men owning tho property havo struck a 40-foot vein of mineral-bearing rock with a pay streak of threo feet. Tho oro is silver and copper, recent tests giving $30 in silver and 40 per cent, in cop per. A great deal of prospecting was dono in this locality in tho days of tho origi nal Piko's Peak excitoment, but nothing camo of it, though old prospectors havo always insisted that rich strikes would bo mado thoro somo day. Tho past year has hardly been up to tho standard in shipments from tho Idaho Springs district, but tho coming year promises to bo a most successful one. Tho Lamartino, which for many years has been tho banner producer of tho district, will increase its forco soon, and expects to ship !!00 tons per month. Tho Silver Lake mino and mill in tho Silverton district, has been bonded to J. H. Earnest Waters for $250,000, and by spring tho whole works will bo running under tho management of tho English company. Sir Edwin Arnold belieVcs thcro is such a diseaso as la grippe now that ho has it. "Old Undo Bon Phillips," an interest ing relic of Now York's slavery days, is dead. Tho shortago of ex-Trcasnrer M. J. O'Brien of tho Catholic Knights of America is $75,823.23. John Bardsloy is reported to bo break ing down and thought to bo nearly at tho point of making a confession. A Chicago dressmaker, whilo insane, went on tho ice, btripicd stark naked, laid down on tho ico and frozo to death.

I Tho ferooious wild bcn.9t which has been roamine at larco in tho forests of tho Bosquo, frightening children to death and making the hair of hun ters stand on end with its car piorcinp screams, was snot last night auout it) . o'clock by Iko Namor, a likely darkey of twentvtwo. A little after ton Ike ran excitedly to the cabin of old man Scroggin's, dragging the wild beast after him by tho tail and calling ex citcdly to tho inmates and exhibiting the body of tho beaBt whioh ha spread such terror through the oonn try. Tho gun with which tho boast was shot was an old fashioned Har per's Ferry muskot of I792, ohaniscd to a percussion lock in 1800. Tho leg of tho ferocious animal was broken at the shotwhon ho instantly charged on tho hunter who clubbed his musket and after a protracted strugglo tho beast, omitting ear pieroing yells at every blow tho bravo darkey gave him, tho coup do otat with a stroke thai broke tho stook of tho muskot to pieces. The out is a fearful piotum of tho blood-curdling animal taken by a Newb artist. Iko and tho Scrogsin boys aro expected in to get the reward for tho capture of tho boast and get tho broken musket blaoksmithed up again. Country pooplo will now got somo sleop and Waeo dogs get a much needed rest. Tho next time the fcro nious monster is killed The Newb will givo another high-tono picture of the boast.
