Beware the Bunco.
The Waterloo Reporter tells this:
“Geo. Frey, a well-to-do farmer of Ben
ton county, is the latest victim in this
section of the bunco man, the transac
tion culminating in this city yesterday
in the arrest of one M. Page, who claims
New York as his place of residence.
The scheme was the Bame old one, re
vamped a little. It was a patent right
project to enable farmers to set their
own wagon tires, certain territory for
which Page sold to Frey for 81,(XX) in
cash. Page and Frey came to Waterloo
Tuesday, and hail the patent on exhibi
tion at Vaughan's implement house.
Then there was another party, giving
the name of 1). 11. Frlsbie, who owned
a share of the patent, but was anxious
to sell out. While the exhibition w’as
going on a man drove up ostensibly to
purchase some mower attachments, but
in fact an accomplice of Page and Fria
ble. The new comer was readily inter
ested In the patent right, and became
enthusiastic over buying a share of it,
offering Page S2O a township for cer
tain territory in western lowa, the
whole amounting to $7,500. Here is
where Page got in his work. He told
Frey that Frisbie was anxious to sell,
and that they could buy his share cheap
and make a couple of thousand apiece.
Frey bit readily, and negotiated with
Frisbie, purchasing his interest for
$3,200, payment for which was made in
notes. A f ter securing the notes Frisbie
disappeared and hasn’t been seen since;
neither has the man who was so anx
ious to buy into the scheme. I’age was
arrested yesterday afternoon, and will
have his hearing Friday afternoon at 1
o’clock, when he will undoubtedly be
bound over to the grand jury.”

The Board of Supervisors visited the
several places along the Des Moines
river suitable for the new bridge on
Monday, and practically settled on span
ning the river at Gateley’s ferry. The
probable cost of the bridge will be 820,-
000, and Supervisor Picken was named
the committee to secure plans and speci
fications which will be looked after
without delay. The location is about
three and a half miles east of the pres
ent bridge, and will make a difference
of about seven miles in travel to reach
Oskaioosa for the residents of the county

It was a virtual necessity, and Its erec

Deafness Cannot be Cured
by local applications as they cannot resell
the diseas-d portion o'the ear. There is
only one way to cur* deafness, and that is
by constitutional remedies. Deafness is
caused by an inhumed condition of the
mucous lining of the Eustachian Tube
When this tube is inhumed, you have a
rumbling sound or imperfect hearing, and
when it is entirely closed. Deafness is the
result, and unless the inflammation can be
taken out and this tube restored to iis nor
mal condition, h*aring will be destroyed
for ever; nine eases out of ten are caused
by catarrh, which is nothing but an in
flamed condition of the‘mucous surfaces.

A Good Skiiviok.— Children’s day
was observed last Sunday at the First
M. E. church, ami was bright in more
ways than one. Botli morning and
evening services were devoted to the
children. The church was decorated
with (lags, a very appropriate trimming
for Columbian exercises. The pastor’s
sermon in the morning was from a very
simple but beautiful text, “the rose
bud.” The little people entered into
the service quite heartily and easily
understood how a little boy or girl can
grow’ from a bud into a beautiful (lower.
These sermons, though prepared ex
pressly for t he child mind, contain many
truths deep enough to trouble older
minds. In the evening the children
gave their Columbian concert. An
educational collection w r as lifted
amounting to nearly twenty dollars.
This mone/ is used in aiding students
of the church who are striving, on lim
ited means, to gain an education in our

burton, I. T.
Fort Smith, Ark., July 3 —Joe Bird,
a negro, was shot at Wi I burton, I. T.,
at 11 o’clock Friday by the Choctaw
authorities. When all was ready for
the tiual scene the execution
ers placed him in position. A
circle about three inches in di
ameter was painted in white im
mediately over his heart, The sheriff
with a rifle stood 15 paces away. lie
took an unerring aim and as lie fired
the negro murderer fell backwards
dead. The Choctaws holding arms
gave utterance to a most unearthly yell
and the tragic scene was over. Bird’s
crime was the brutal murder of his wife.
A few weeks ago he brained his mother
in-law, for w hich he received 100 lashes.
For this his wife left him and he called
her from her house and shot her. Four
Indians will l»e shot ut the same place
next Friday and five the Friday follow

CoDgress to Meet in Extra Session
on August 7.
President Cleveland's Proclamation
Convening the Statesmen—Will Re
peal the Sherman Law.
Washington, July 3. —After carefully
going over all the details at the cabinet
meeting the president issued a procla
mation Friday afternoon calling an ex
tra session of congress, beginning Au
gust 7, 1893, as follows:
“Executive Mansion, Washington, n. c.,
June 30, 1893,—Whereas, The distrust and ap
prehension concerning the financial situation
which pervade all business circles have already
caused great loss and damage to our people
and threaten to cripple our merchants, stop the
wheels ot manufacture, bring distress and pri
vation to our farmers and withhold from our
workingmen the wage of labor; and
"Whereas, The present perilous condition is
largely the result of a financial policy which
the executive branch of the government finds
embodied in unwise laws which must be exe
cuted until repealed by congress;
“Now, therefore, I, Orover Cleveland, presi
dent of the United States, in performance of a
constitutional duty, do, by this proclamation,
declare that an extraordinary occasion requires
the convening of both houses of the congress of
the United States at the capital in the city of
Washington ou the 7th day of August next, at
12 o'clock noon, to the end that the people may
be relieved through legislation from present
and impending danger and distress.
“AU those entitled to act as members of the
Fifty-third congress are required to take notice
of this proclamation and attend at the time and
place above stated.
“Given under my hand and the seal of the
United States at the city of Washington on the
30th day of June, in the year of our Lord, one
thousand eight hundred and uinety-lhree. and
of the independence of the United Stales the
one hundred and seventeenth.
Goes to Buzzard's Bay.
The determination to call an extra
session had hardly been announced ere
there was a hasty departure from the
white house; and shortly after 4 o’elock
the president was en route to Buzzard’s
Bay to join .Mrs. Cleveland. Beyond fix
ing up certain western appointments no
other business was transacted, it being
the desire of the chief magistrate to
give as much time as poosible to the
preparation of his message to congress,
besides recuperating from his work
since the inauguration. It is under
stood that the president will transact
only the most urgent public business
while at Buzzard's Bay, and what of
ficial announcements are to be made
will be given out at the executive man
sion in Washington.
Feels Sure of Repeal.
The determination to call the extra
session the first week in August, in
stead of the first week in September, it
is understood was only definitely ar
rived at at Friday morning’s cabinet
session after giving full weight to the
numerous telegrams received from all
parts of the country urging this
course. And the consideration
which caused the president to
change his mind was foreshadowed
in a remark made by one of his cabinet
officers two days ago that if the presi
dent received reasonable assurances
that there was a likelihood of a prompt
repeal of the so-called Sherman pur
chase law he might be disposed to call
congress together earlier than he had
announced. It, is inferred from the
fact that the president has done so that
he considers he has obtained the assur
ranees which he desired.
Members of the cabinet who remain
in the city say the president's procla
mation speaks for itself and decline to
discuss the situation further.
Gcu. Tracey’s Figure*.
(Jen. Tracey, of New York, who was
the leader of the anti-silver men in the
last house and who will undoubtedly
be Mr. Cleveland’s leader in the next,
furnished the correspondent with some
figures showing the probable strength
of the silver and anti-silver forees
on a direct vote. lie first took
the vote of February 9 last, which was
the last fruitless attempt to repeal the
Sherman act. This shows 152 silver
men, 143 anti-silver and 34 not voting.
Gen. Tracey checked off the names of
those members who had voted with the
silver people in February, but who
could now be relied upon to vote for
the repeal. There were 15 of
these. making a net gain of
82 to the anti-silver men. With
these changes the next vote on the re
peal of the Sherman law would be 158
for repeal, 187 against repeal, making
a majority of at least 21 in favor of re
pealing the Sherman law. The fifteen
changes pointed out by Mr. Tracey
were only those he felt absolutely sure
of, and he had reason to believe that
the gain would be even greater.
Attitude of tl«e President.
New York, July B.—A Washington
special to a news agency here says:
“Senator Vorhces, eliairuun of the senate
finance committee, saw the president Wednes
day and in discussing the silver Situation the
president said: '1 uni In favor of the
immediate repeal of the purchase clause
of the Sherman act. 1 don't say any
thing about conditioLs being attached
to tho repeal. The matter of conditions
is something to !>e taken up afterwards. 1 have
not ahandouod my belief m the use of silver as
money. 1 never was in favor of the bullion pur
chase clause of the Sherman act. 1 consider it
fraudulent and deceptive legislation, which sim
ply reduce* silver to a commodity and issues
shinplasters on it. We might us well buy and
store up cordwood. That clause should be re
pealed at once.’"
11 rip* Wall Stri'i't.
New York, July 3. —There was great
excitement when the stock market
opened. Prices rose from one to two
points above Friday night’s dose. The
can rur a special session ot congress to
act upon the Sherman law with a view
to its repeal was of course the
great factor. The news had been
rumored about the exchange before
the close Friday night, and stocks had
been boomed then, as the bears rushed
to cover as quickly as they could. Ev
erything on the list scored advances.
The bears were heavy buyers and
in their eagerness to cover bid
prices up on nthemselves. St. Paul
opened excited with sales of 4,000
shares at (59 at <59% simultaneously.
Northwest firsts sold at 104% against
103% Friday night, and then jumped to
105% without intermediate sales. Rock
Island got up to 71, and St. Paul <L
Omaha to 39. There was good buying
ifoc investment account, and taken al
together a more confident feeling pre
vailed in financial circles.
Before the exchange opened for busi
ness the brokers began to gather
around the various posts and discuss
the probable action of congress. Occar
sionally one of them would propose
three cheers for the president, and they
were given with a will. Opinions
were unanimous in Wall street that the
law would be repealed and that the
president had wisely in calling
congress to meet before September,
it was argued that the big drop
in silver, owing to the closing
of the indiun mints, would make
the silver congressmen more willing to
vote for the repeal of the law than they
were before or may be later. The
favorable prospects were heightened
by the announcement that silver ad
vanced three pence in London.
Ficknurketa nt tli# Fair.
Chicago, July 3.— Thieves worked
the crowd ut the elevated station in tho
world’s fair grounds Friday night, and
as a result Dr. J. If. Albright, of Den

his pocketbook containing S3OO, and a

The robberies were committed while
the home-going crowd was thronging

is preparing for war, either offensive
or defensive, but they do say that the
czar will feel more comfortable if he
has all his soldiers within easy reach in

weekly review of trade says:
"The closing of the Indian mints against sil
ver, the fall of silver bullion to cents in New
York and 32' 4 U at London on Thursday, the fall
in wheat to 02% cents at Chicago and 70 cents at
New York, the suspension of operations by the
miners and smelters of Colorado and some other
silver-producing states have made the last
week one of unusual iuterest Up to the pres
ent time domestic trade has not materially
changed since last week, though increasingly
restricted by monetary uncertainties.
Legitimate Business Healthy.
"Throughout the country, while collections
are slow and failures numerous, the condition
of legitimate business is regarded as healthy
and hopes are entertained that the worst has
passed. The hopes are mainly based on the
belief that the silver law will be repealed and
that the certainty of its repeal will encourage
foreign investments here. Lower prices of
products also tend to increase merchandise ex
“Chicago reports better accommodations for
merchants, and. though business is still some
what restricted, collections are less difficult
The closing of silver mines and smelting works
may lessen orders, but itts believed only tempo
rarily. The trade with farming regions is ex
pected to improve with belter crop prospects
and a larger export demand. Provisions are
steady, but wheat is at the lowest price for
forty years, though now held by strong parties.

larged by the world's fair. Receipts of products
are generally smaller than a year ago and a de

At Cleveland there is no improvement in iron
or ore, and lake freights are depressed. At De
troit business is fair but conservative, and mon
ey close.
Prices of drain and Provisions.
“Wheat lias reaehed prices regarded as ont
of the question a month ago, uud yet the sup
ply in sight is very large, and returns from the
northwest as to the coming harvest are more
favorable. Corn is lower, with very good crop
prospects, and oats about 2 cents lower. Hog
products have declined t» cents for pork per
barrel and 15 cents for lard per 100 pounds, with
increasing receipts of hogs.
