It Don't Like the lowa Way on the
Coxey Army.
Special to Herald.
Council Bluffs, April 18.—Omaha,
across the river, is ail tore up over the
way the lowa folks are treating the
Coxey army. The lowa folks have done
nothing but kept them from taking rail
road trains without cost.
There was a great meeting called at
Omaha, and lowa and Gov. Jackson
severely denounced, but the police
stopped the meeting. One speaker
wanted to famish two thousand pounds
of ammunition to clean out the lowa
National Guard, and let off other very
foolish talk.
The situation is very strained,and the
condition of the men pitiable'ln every
way. A settlement of the affair is ex

We trust that the rumor prevalent
that some“aggrieved tax payer”intends
to injoin the, Board from paying for
the services of the expert judge is un
founded. The fun would then com

would be grievances—you may bet your

statement of the city up to date:

Total 91,607 53
All tax available for 1894.... 35,265 92

a debt remaining of 57,231 61
But as the bonds and over-
drafts are on 6 per cent
about $5,000 must be added,
Torich would leave the debt

For there will be bonds and interest
paid, in amount about $4,000, from the
the taxes levied for that purpose. The
$13,000 general fund will no more than
pay the general expense, as set at the
present pace. The council had better
keep these figures-* before them, and by
doing a little figuring at every meeting
they will know their financial where

Terribly Burned.
Mrs. Green, sister of John Tovrea,
was severely burned Monday noon and
will hardly recover from the injuries
received. She was working near a fire,
out of doors, and the iiames cought her
clothing. She ran toward the house
but seeing the fire gaining rapidly she
fell upon the ground and tried to put

House,' With Divorce
Bill Pending.
ThejTale of Sorrow !
George Croft fatally shot his wife,
Etta Croft, and then killed himself this
lafternoon at half past two o’clock, at
the court house.
There had been divorce proceedings
pending and both were at the court
house. Mrs. Croft was going down the
rear exit of the court house to speak’to
some relatives who had come to take
her, with some household, effects,
out to Jefferson township. Mr.
Croft ran out after his wife
and when within four feet of her, fired
a revolver, 38 calibre, the shot taking
effect in the right side, and probably
glanced downward into the intestines.
The woman staggered and then ran
north around the court house scream
ing for help. Croft ran after her, per
haps twenty feet, when he put the re
volver to his right temple and pulled
the trigger. He fell head long to the
pavement, dead, the life blood staining
the spot where he dropped.
to the front of the court house crying
that she was shot, and in a half faint
ing condition was assisted into the
sheriff's office. Dr. Todd was im
mediately called and examined the
woman’s wound. The ball entered the
right side and seems to have coursed
downward into the abdomen. Great
internal bleeding and injury are cer
tain and it is probable the woman will
die. She was taken to the residence of
a family named White living near the
Third ward schoolhouse.
waa examined by. Coroner Ilinseley who
ordered him taken to McCurdy’s under
taking rooms for dressing. The ball
entered the right temple and death was
instaneous. His face was badly cut and
bruised by the concussion of the fall.
Croft was a well built man of rather
fair appearance. He dressed well, and
at one time was considered a young
man of much worth. Of late he had
fallen into bad ways and the undertak
er’s examination showed him to have a
private disease of the worst nature.
His wife, Etta Croft, had filed a peti
tion for divorce which would be heard
in the October term of court, claim
ing that the man had at divers
times and places been guilty of
adultery with diverse women, that he
was cruel and inhuman in treatment
endangering her life and that he was
wasting their little property and means
of support. The wife without bond at
tached the household chatties for
$200.00 and had them conveyed to the
court house. The woman’s uncle and
aunt, Mr. and Mrs. Capt. Parker, who
the W. C. England place near
the new bridge, Jefferson township,
came to the city ta day to convey the
wife and the goods to their home. She
had a promissory note of Croft’s and
was at the court house to give it to him.
He took the paper and then shot the
wife. It seems that the man was not
anxious to separate and had tried to
effect a compromise in some way.
There had been trouble before but it
had not culminated until about two
weeks ago when the wife discovered
the man’s condition and gained knowl
edge of his acts. She then began action
for a divorce with the results as given

IfGeorge Croft was running a billiard
hail and lunch room in the building
just east of the Bashaw livery bam,
and had both fioon rented. He had
talked freely about his trouble, and to
the doctor who was attending him he
said that he would settle his trouble,
hinting at an amicable compromise.
The man had wept when in conversa
tion with his wife in the morning and
seemed to feel the disgrace keenly. The
deed seems to have been committed al
most upon the impulse of the moment
and it was quickly and terribly done.
The shooting caused considerable ex
citement and the deed was discussed
upon all corners of the street. The con
dition of the woman remains about the
same, but just as we go to press at
5:30 the attending physicians say the
unfortunate woman cannot recover.

Minerva Jane Widows was born in Wayne
county, Indiana, May 25, 1890. She came
to lowa with her parents, John and Nancy
Widows, in 1849. She was married to Panl
Castor at Oskaloosa, August 7, 1849, and
became the mother of six children, all of
whom are living. She died April 14, 1894,
aged 63 years, 10 months and 19 days. Mrs.
Castor’s death was very sudden and unex
pected. She had been in rather poor health
since an attack of la grippe a year or more
ago, and at times suffered some from its
effects; bat it did not prevent her assisting
with the usual house work. But on Satur
day morning, April 14, after an unusually
pleasant night’s rest, she arose, told her
daughter how well she had slept, and said,
“I feel very sleepy yet.” Her daughter
said. “Mother, perhaps I had better rub
your eyes.” She said no, and resumed
dressing herself and the daughter returned
to finish the preparations for breakfast. A
short time after she stepped to the door of
her mother’s room and saw that she was
gasping in death and past speaking She
called her father to take charge of Mrs.
Castor, while the daughter ran for her
brother who lived near them. They re
turned to the honse and found the mother
dead in the arms of their father. But one
feeble gasp and Mrs. Castor was numbered
with the departed; not lost, but gone be
“How sweetly grand it is to die,
When all life’s races have been run;
Childhood, youth and old age have come,
Have lingered and are gone.”
Mr. and Mrs. Castor after their marriage
either lived with or very near her parents,
John and Nancy Widows. ,A^ er the death
of Mrs. Widows, which occurred many
years ago, Mr. Widows spent the remain
der of hU noble life of honor and honesty
with Mr. and Mrs. Castor. If what is said
of sadden deaths be true, —that it is the
best way to go—certainly there
reasons in its favor. When the writer
looked at the lifeless form of Mrs. Castfr
robed for burial, she seemed tb sleep nat-'
urally in her casket, without the marks of
the fierce diseases that prey upon millions
of our race. The funeral occurred from
the residence at 11 o'clock A. M., April 16,
and was largely attended. Mrs. Castor in
her life much loved good song service, and
her children, knowing what their mother
had loved, made the selections. The choir
consisted of Miss Olive and Fred Ogborn,
Mrs. Della Rockwell, Mrs. Dora James,
Will and George Irwin and Rev. C. G.Oak
ley, with Mrs. James H. Allen as organist
The songs we re “Nearer, My God,to Thee,”
“Shall We Meet When This Fitful Life Is
Over,” “We’ll Never Say Goodbye in
Heaven,” and a fourth song rendered at
the grave. Selections from the scriptures
were read and short comments made there
on, particularly on Ist Cor. 13, where Panl
discusses the doctrine of what avail a pro
fession of Christianity would be without
faith, hope and charity. The services at
the house being over, the large procession
formed and moved away to the Union Mills
cemetery, where interment was made. A
few words of prayer by a brother of the
Dunkard church, and Mr. White,the under
taker,in a few well selected words thanked
all present for tbelr expressions of sympa
thy for Mr. Castor and his family.

TERRELL.—Died, of apoplexy, at the

1)4 miles northwest of the city, at 4 o’clock
a. m., April 8, 1894, Mrs. Mart J. Terrell.
widow of Clark Terrell, in the 86th year of
her age. Funeral from yearly meeting
bouse at 3 P. M., April 9, conducted by Rev.
Chas. W. Sweet and others, and interment
in Friends cemetery.
n'hus a dear mother has passed to the
golden shore, from works to reward. She
was a devoted member of the Friends
church and during her long dnd useful life
was ever ready to work in the cause of her
dear Lord and Master with unwavering
faith in redemption through His precious
blood. When the summons came it found
her ready and waiting for the call. Al
though from age and feeble health she has
not been permitted to attend public wor
ship on many occasions of late years, she
never lost her lively Interest in the welfare
of the church and was always interested in
talking to her friends and relatives about
things pertaining to the salvation of the
immortal soul, and took great comfort in
residing her Bible; and to her “there was
no joy like the joy of God's salvation.”
When stricken down suddenly with what
proved to be her last illness of about eleven
days, the Bible was in her hands, she was
drinking at the fountain. Surely “blessed
are they that die in the Lord; yea, saith the
spirit, and their works do follow them.”
Mother Terrell lived to see twelve children
grown to manhood and womanhood, six
sons and six daughters, all accepting her
Christian faith and teaching. TeTo daugh
ters dying in later years have gone before
her to the “home over there.” Those sur
viving her are Thomas and George Terrell,
Sarah J. Steddom, Hannah P. Green and
Mary P. Hawkins, of Oskaloosa; Rachel
Cox, of Dublin, Ind.; Clark and Matthew
Terrell, of Oregon, Michael Terrell, of
Enrlham, Iowa; John L. Terrell,of Creede,
Colorado, all of whom now mourn the loss
of a loving mother who died surrounded by
children and grandchildren doing all that
loving hands could do to prolong the spark
of life that slowly ebbed away. ” God has
called her home where we shall meet her
on the resurrection morn.
“Earth’s days are over, her toil is done,
H :r conflict finished—the victory won;
She lays her cross and armor down
For the saintly robe and kingly crown.”
EMORY. —Died, of pulmonary consump
tion, at her home near Indianapolis, April
9, 1894, Hester Ann Emory, aged 42 years,
6 months and 12 days.
Deceased was born at Peoria, 111 . Sept.
U#bU3f>L She was married to J. W. Emory
July 3, 1878,. , Three children were born to
them, two «f whom, Ada, aged 13 and Ar
dell, aged 12, are lving; Fossie, the young
est, died in early infancy. She was also a
tender and loving mother to six other chil
dren, born to her husband by a former
marriage. Sbe was converted at the age
of 17 and was steadfast to the end. Mrs.
E mory was of consumptive habit and year
by year declined. During the holidays la
gtippe found her an easy prey and hurried
the steady march to the grave. Thus the
drama of a pure and beautiful life is played
to the end of the last sad act in last sad
scene. Sandals and staff and scrip arc laid
down, to be taken up do more. A borne
and many hearts are beoeft and desolate,
and a new grave is made and filled and
closed. An exalted character which was
given to the world as a noble example has
passed to the mystic realms of eternity.
But the influences for good which she has
set in motion follow in her wake like a halo
of glory, and will glow and brighten from
generation to generation till time which
was and is shall be declared to be no-more.
We rejoice that such an one has lived; we
sorrow that ahe is dead. Very seldom does
life aJMdHPwo striking an example of un
devotion to duty. “Greater love
hath ho man than this, that he lay down his
life for his friend ” Yet here is One who
gave herself a willing sacrifice for those
she loved, and died regretting she had no
more to give. So heavily did the responsi
bilities of life press upon her while the slow,
insiduous disease was doing its work that
she felt at times that sbe must not and
could not die and resign the care of her be
loved children to other bands. , Her last
days were days of unutterable agony, but
when the final hour was at hand she spent
herself in counsel and exhortation and
passed serenely to the last long sleep. So
closely was she knitted to her famify in tics
of tenderest love that when for her “the
golden bowl was broken” they felt that
they, too, had tasted death. Her Hfe was
fraught with noble deeds and holy pur
poses. She was a woman of wide influence
and ever stood firmly for justice and right,
and to her friends was true as steel to the
tried blade. Ws feel that In her death we
have sustained great personal loss. The
funeral services were held at Indianapolis
on Thursday, April 12, and were largely
attended. The pall bearers were her foster
children, who feel that they owe
long debt of gratitude. We consigned her
to the darkness and dampness of the grave,
knowing that in the resurrection morning
she will come forth with a more glorious
body, and with the righteous shall shine as
the stars forever and ever.

Resolved, That we, as members of the
Great Church which Christ came to estab

by the marvelous exhibition of the sus
