History of Their Mock Transactions •-Other* said to bo Implicated. The preliminary examination of J. D. Martin for the murder of Buchanan Moore will come up to-day before. Judge Cory. Facts are gradually coming to light which seem to indicate that prominent people in lowa were implicated with Martin and Moore in questionable stock transactions. Several of the stock deals of Martin & Moore have already came to light. It is established that on the 2a of February last one stallion ami two mares were purchased ! of J. .1. Elwood of DeKalb, 111., for wli eh a mortgage was given by Martin and others on land near Burlington, represented to be worth SO, OOO. Investigation proves the land on which the mortgage is given to be not worth over S'iSO, as it is swampy and not tillable. Another deal is the purchase of two stallions and two mares from J. C. Duncan of Noras*. 111., the prico being S\!.:>oo. To secure this a mortgage is given on 138 acres of land in Clarke county. Mis souri, ami three town lots in Hartley's ad dition to DesMoines, la. This trans action was on Dec. 80, ISSS, and the land is represented as valuable and the corner lots reported as valued at S*J. 100. The lots are actually worth 9150 each and the Missouri laud is all but valueless. The mortgage which secured the purchase is given by Moore to Martin and transferred by them to Duncan. Five N. union horses were also purchased 1 by Martin and Moon from Park liernand of Sherltan, la. The pnee for the animals was $5,1)00, secured also BY SWAMP I.AXO above Burlington and other land in Clarke county, Missouri. As far back as April 4, . '85, a'case lias been found where the two purchased a One stallion from M. W. Dun ham of Wayne, Pupate- county, Illinois. The price was SI, SOD, secured by a mortgage given by Chas. li. Roberta to J. P. Martin. Huberts, it Is thought, was Buchanan Moore. Other transactions appear in various lieti tious names, which have been traced to Martin and Moore, as well as showing a guiding hand far above these two in posi tion and prominence. There is evidence, it is said, that Martin and Moore were engaged in securing fine stock fraud ulently; that Moore came ahead to meet stock which was expected; that the deal miscarried and the stock was slezed; that exposure was imminent and Martin came on and murdered Moore, the latter being feared, as he was known to be a weak man, used as a tool and who would '•peach." That there was danger of exposure is shown by the following note, left at the Prospect house in Burlington, and to which no signature is attached: March 12.— J. A. Martin: Don't show up. They are after you. Let me know where you are, but keep scarce for awhile. * The letter is dated the day before the murder at the stuck yards. The entire facts will bo developed at the trial and show a combination implicating men of charac ter and standing. When the full particu lars are published it will read like a story and pretty thoroughly shake up a portion of lowa. A HOI T THE CABLE M>E. How the Properly Will be Affected" A Park Desired. At the council meeting on Tuesday even- Ing an ordinance passed granting the street railway company the right to construct a cable line bom Seven coiners along Third to 1 point nearly opposite College avenue, and thence up the bill to Selby avenue and out that thoroughfare. The ordinauce was drawn up alter a conference with property owners in the immediate neighborhood and provided for tracks in the center of Third street, hut on the north side of Selby ave nue. The subjoined diagram will show the topography of the neighborhood: A— Pare B — N. W . Kittson's residence. ( —Fust M. B. church. D— Proposed park. The two parallel linos on Selby avenue rep resent tic street car Hue, and the dotted lines biiow the sidewalk uud proposed flower plat. The design of the ordinance was to make a park of the territory represented by D, which is a series of terraces touching Selby avenue on the north. The rirst of these Is readied from Summit avenue, and is at an elevation of 200 feet. From this one a pair of winding stairs was intended to descend to the next, an elevation of ISS feet, and so on down to the level of Third street. Along the front of JSelby avenue, represented by the dotted lines, it was intended to arrange Bower beds, lay out walks and otherwise embellish the spot. From Selby avenue the terraces could be reached and a beauti ful view of the city obtained. Placing the tracks at the north side of Selby allowed plenty of room lor a driveway and side walk, leaving twenty -eight feet of the street occupied bj the cable lines. When the ordinance, however, came up for dis cussion it was moved to amend by placing the tracks in tint center of tin 1 avenue, and the amendment passed undt -r a suspension of the rules. 11 the tracks arc placed in the center of the avenue it will necessitate the cutting away <>i a portion of the south side of the hills Which com pone the terraces aud park, and require the budding of a retaining wall along the soiuh front of the street. Thus an unatli active -tone wall will supplant the beaul.il>! park fronl and cue of the prettiest uaiuial spots for euibeiiisl.men , ai.d a tine view wiii ue rendered unsiguu>, if uot en tirely destroyed. The residents along the streets iii the immediate vicinity, it is un derstood, will protest against the action of the couucil and petitions will be circulated for signers asking a reconsideration oi the matter. A MiW U. 11OISC Which Will be liuilt Opposite the Jackkou Street ( liurrlt site. In yesterday morning's Glodk we men tioned tlie fact that Edward LaiiKevin had purchased the .Jackson Street M.

The lower story along Jackson street will be stores suitable for retail business. Ou Ninth sireet frontage, in rear of the stores, it will be built in the Intest style of modern Hats, with all the conveniences that are now placed in such structures in the largest cities. About 120 feet south from the corner of Ninth street will be a mag nificent entrance to the opera house, which will be in the rear of the stairs and on a level with the street. The stage will be at the rear or fur end from Jackson street and will be ninety feet long and sixty f«et wide or deep from the footlights to the rear wall of building. There will be exits all around, and It will be so arranged that an audience of over 4.009 people can be emptied from the house in less than two miautes. The seating capacity of the house will be 8,000, with standing room in an ample foyer for 1.200 to 1,500 people, parquet, dress circle, balcony and gallery, the whole to be so arranged that the seats can be re moved from the parquet and the whole space be utilized for dancing. Another novel feature will be the tact that this en tire parquet can be converted into a circus ring and the largest traveling circus can use this immense structure Instead of exhibiting under canvass. It is designed to make this the largest place of amusement in this city and a place cheap enough to command the patronage of the people. The plans being as \et quite incomplete It is rather difficult to estimate the cost of this entire improve ment. It is expected, however, that the outlay will be somewhere from $125,000 to SiOO.OOO. im: i.o\ v. I.i i.io\. New Meaibers fclecied and an Inter- tsiiiig Paper.

At the conclusion of the regular busi ness meeting came a paper by Hon. Eugene M. Wilson of Minneapolis, on The Blessings of War. This paper, though requiring less than a half hour for delivering, was an exceedingly interesting and finely-finished production. It dwelt on the philosophy of war, and was the first delivered before the Loyal Legion that has not been lanrely made up of incidents. At the conclusion of the address the members partook of a light banquet, and spent several hours in social enjoyment. GI.OKKJI.ES. There were four deaths and one birth yes terday.

Iti Advantages for Heating- and t'ooiitne--<;n» store*. Only second in importance to lighting In domestic application of gas Is that of cook ing and heating by Its means. The con venience and comfort of cooking by gad, especially during the summer months, when n tiiv is not otherwise required, can only bfl thoroughly appreciated by those who had experience in its extremely useful applica tion for that purpose. The advantages in convenience, clean liness and economy are quite as great re latively in the case of the fmiallwrt family, m in that of the largest public institution, if the ga» be properly burned and carefully n«*l. and \et with the public generally there lias been a strong prejudice against cooking by gas. which has greatly retarded it- mi. m- k'eneial u-c. Within the last few years the popular prejudice has been giving away, as the advantages of gas for this pui|>ose are becoming wore widely recog nized. The objections to thus utilizing gas have been chiefly a mistaken belief in its flavor ing the meat the difficulty of burning it satisfactorily, so as to avoid smoking and dirt, and Its expense as compared with other fuel. Toere can be no doubt that some gas stoves are very extravagant and wasteful, nevertheless, the objections raised are neither pertinent nor convincing. We claim that the advantages accruing from the employment of gab are manifest and many. It can be shown satisfactorily that great economy results from the employment of gas. The lighting and extinguishing of gas is an instantaneous operation, neither entail ing the drudgery, waste of fuel, of time or temper expended in the lighting of a coal fire. The waste in meat cooked by gas is greatly diminished over that cooked by coal tire. We find that meat roasted by coal fire loses one-third in weight, or 83)£ per cent., while the .same cooked by the gas process loses only about one-seventh, or 14 per cent. Another important advantage is the sim plification of the labors (if the cook. With a good gas cooking stove the difficulty aris ing from slow tires, quick fires and bright tires vanish at once and forever in the sim ple turning of a tap. admitting more or less gas. the cook controlling the tire, Instead of the tire controlling the cook. The cook having th« fire directly under her control, the heat can be calculated to a nicety; it is not variable, and it is as readily obtained as it is easy to be got rid of when no longer required. Not the least abstruse of the many branches of a cook's education is the requirement of experience in roasting. She has to calculate and weigh with much nicety the size of the joints and the power and effect of her fire. But gas ovens and roasting chambers, skillfully contrived, in sure always an even and regular heat The meat, as we have said, will be found to have wasted but little, and be more full of nutritive elements than if cooked in the old way. juices and fat being no longer separated, but thoroughly incorporated with the meat There are numerous modifications of ap paratus. We claim the following as some of the advantages in comparison with coal and the ordinary gas stoves heretofore used: First- More healthful through the ab sence of waste, heat, soot, smoke, dust and smell. — More certain, by the rapidity of manipulation, in consequence of the sim plicity of construction. Third — troublesome, requiring very little attention during the process of cook- Ing. Fourth— Less expensive. Fifth— Less wasteful, through loss of weight; ihe juices and fat instead of being separated, as is the case in ordinary pro cess, remain thoroughly incorporated with the meat, a point of great importance In a nutritive as well as an economical sense. Sixth— The adoption . of the most i>erfect burners in all the apparatus, whether for heating or 'cooking purposes, discovered by scientific research.

Superiority ol fabric, ele gance of design and beauty of color ing are the desiderata sought by us, and these, united with as moderate p -ices as is consistent with the same, art- the secrets of our success thus far. We are neli.nj; the very best and •choicest Extra super Ingrains at UOc per yard, orsl made and put down, while we have many at a less price. We are selling the best and Choicest Tapestries from $1 to $1.1 and we believe we have a better line of these goods than can be found elsewhere in St. l'aul or Minneapolis, according to the expression of our customers who have looked, and we can confidently recommend these as being better than the poorer grades of Body Brussels so largely sold of late. We are selling our best Body Brussels from $1.35 to $1.50, with elegant borders to match. We are selling elegant Velvet Carpets, extra quality, from $1.50 to $1.05; best Moquettes, $1.50 to $1.75, and superior Wilton Velvets at $1.75 to $'& per yard, and these goods we have in large variety and quiet artistic ef fects and patterns not obtainable else where In our city.

Of our Wall Paper stock we will only say It needs to be seen to be appreciated. Ask to look at the Velours, Cheviots, Ingrains, figured and plain, Cartridge Papers, Gilts and Cheaper paper.
