A number of deaths have been reported. At Caldwell. Kan.. James H. Sherman, n relative of (Jen. Sherman and a former comrade of Col. Cody and Wild Hill, has been acquitted of the murder of Mayor Meagher, of Caldwell, twenty-one years ago. It was the last of the cowbov bat tles. The Committee on Nominations pre sented its recommendations at the open ing of Thursday morning's session of the deep waterways convention in Cleveland, Ohio, for the re-election of the old officers and the election of seventen members of the Executive Hoard. The report was promptly adopted.

Fortj- passengers, many of them wom en, who started across the lake from Chi cago for St. Joe on the steamer Puritan Sunday morning returned to Chicago in the afternoon because the boat had been unable to make a landing on the other side of the lake. When they came down the gang plank after their trip they were about as seasick a looking lot of passen gers as one would see in many a day. Most of them declared it had been a rough voyage and the rough sea rolle! the boat so that many never expected to land alive. Fire in the Minneaiolis Chamber of Commerce for a time threatened the de struction of the building. The Harnes were, however, confined to the upper floors, although the entire building was drenched. The Chamber of Commerce is a handsome five-story stone struc ture, at Third street and Fourth avenue south, two blocks from the milling dis trict. It was erected in lNSi at a cost of $lNO.Ooo. It is the center of the grain trade, the Corn Exchange and Flour Ex change occupying adjacent corners. The loss is estimated at $30.000 on the build ing and $30.tiOO on the contents. The in surance on the building is $12."i.OOO. The following notice posted at Poca tello, Idaho, has brought forth indignant protests: Department of Interior. United States Indian Service.

Morris O'Connor, a prospector owning several claims, took a mining ex.wit named Cook to look at them. He and Cook camped out on a mountain, and during the night O'Connor, who had been drinking heavily, arose and, taking a pick, drove it throng!. Cook's brain, pinning his head to the ground. lie then giascd an ax and fin ished his bloody deed by hacking his vic tim in a horrible manner. The mutilated body was found the next morning by boine miners, who organized a posse and soon captured O'Connor. It is thought O'Connor committed the deed while crazy from drhik. Cook represented a rich syndicate purchasing mines. A thief committed a loId robbery on a Wabash train the other n'ght as it topped nt the Archer avenue depot, in Chicago. A young and well-dressed man sprang on the steps of the rear coach just as the traiu was slowing up and, brushing past the porter, made his way inside. The first compartment was occupied by Mrs. George Mack, whose husband was in the smoking car. The robber forced his way in and, roughly seizing Mrs. Mack, pushed her to one side. lie took her valise and purse and turned to leave, but Mrs. Mack seized his coat and drew him back. The man struck her twice in the face and she sank to the floor, but still clung to him. lie dragged her to the platform and when she commenced to shout for help he struck her again in the face. As she relaxed her hold he jumped from the train and es caped. Typhoid fever seems to be epidemic in Chicago. Forty-two deaths have oc curred in the last eleven days, out of a probable total of nearly one thousand cases and physicians and health depart ment attaches ascribe the cause diversely to the condition of the water supply or to the impure milk and cream sold by deal ers up to the time of the department cru sade against them. Health Commission er Kerr denies the existence of an epi demic on the basis of the fact that only three cases were reported to the depart ment Wednesday. But, the Evening Post says, the fact that there were twenty-nine deaths from the disease at the County Hospital last week and that there are eighty cases there now has a far stronger bearing on the question of the epidemic than the report of only three new cases. It is well known that phy sicians are careless about reporting cases of typhoid and even the hospitals fre quently refuse to make reports of the number of patients and of their diseases as required by the city ordinance. SOUTHERN. C. Phillips, a member of the Haltield McCoy gang in West Virginia, is dying of blood iKUsoning caused by a bullet Wound He is said to have killed six men.

Thursday even ing every member of the Cabinet was in consultation with the Governor until 11:30. At midnight the Governor issued a proclamation calling a special session of the legislature. As the reason for his action he says that, under the present condition of the law. the tight managers are lialde to pull off the tight while the courts are rowing over it; that Chief Jus tice of the Court of Criminal Appeals Hurt has ruled against the State, anil now there is a mandamus case pending in the Supreme Court that may go in an entirely different line, raising a conflict between the two highest courts in the State. In order to settle all possible con tention he issued the call. WASHINGTON. A Washington dispatch says: Spain must crush the Cuban rebellion during the next three mouths or submit to inter national interference in the interest of humanity and commerce. That is the significance of a series of conferences just held between Secretary Olney and the Spanish minister, Senor Dupuy de Imie. The United States has agreed for the present to Keep hands out of the trouble, but this is accompanied by a tacit warning that unless Spain carries out her promise of suppressing the insur rection and restoring order to Cuba with in reasonable time she must expect the United Stales Government to pursue a quite different iolicy. In other words, Spain is to be given one chance to dem onstrate her ability to rule the island, and. failing in this, the chances are the United States Government will take the leadership in international intervention, with the complete autonomy or perhaps the independence of Cuba as the objective point. A year ago Commissioner of Pensions I .ochre u said that the limit had probably been reached in the number of pensions, or rather in the amount to be yearly ap propriated for pensions, and that for two or three years the payments would re main about the same. It was his opinion that there would be a slight reduction in the number of pensioners on account of deaths, but that the allowance of new pensions, with back pay and arrears, would probably keep the amount about even. While the amount of money paid for pensions will not be materially dif ferent there has been addetl to the pen sion rolls during the last year alout n thousand names in -excess of those that have drop ted out, so mere has been an increase instead of a decrease. There have been a great many outstanding pen sion claims adjusted during the year, and that accounts for the large increase. The year has not been very fatal to pensioners, the death rate being less than would be anticipated at the time of life at which the veterans of the late war have arrived.
