THE STATE CONY The Yftamc Mm it Vlllalnjonm In stinct Arrested la Rock Inlaod, Tell His Btsry of Crlne Tram Wrrrklns nj Other Dlabslleal Plots. Oreutt, the young burglar and train wrecker run in by Officer Meenan in Ibis city a week ago, and now in jail at Iowa City, where he has been wanted for aome time, baa by the confession of his own lips demonstrated that he is a villain of the darkest stripe. Since revealing his own wickedness and devilish plots he has become extremely nervou9, and acts as though he were being pursued. In an in terview Oreutt stated that associating with bad company Rot him into his pres en t trouble. He states there was a tough lot of boys in Iowa City a couple of years ago, and he went with them. His own story of the attempt to wreck the train shows how desperate he was. He says: "I wanted to make some money. I talked over with the boys the idea of wrecking the train and getting a lot of cash. We would have been successful, but they all went back on me, and I concluded to do it myself. One dark night I went to the tool house east of the depot.broke in and got a set of tools that would open the rails . I carried them in a round abou t way to the west side of the river and picked out the best place, taking a point just where there is a sharp curve. I intended after the wreck to show up as 1 had happened to come along like any one living near there. Had I gone anywhere else my presence there would have given me away, but I took that place because I could be there when the crowd began to gather and I could have gotten lots of nione; by gRttina into the express car in the confusion and lots of people would have been thrown out or fallen under the cars whom I could have robbed. I knew that the train alwavs car. ried lots of express money and lots of people who had lots of money. Well, when I got there it was late. I went to work and got the fish bolts partly unloosened when I thought I heard some one coming down the track. I was mis taken in this, but I lost a lot of time. I went to work again and was just getting the rails loose when I saw the express coming. Ot course I had to stop then, and I hid mvself in a lot of bushes. I thought I had done enough to throw the train, but she went over sailing and noth inh happened at all. Then I took the tools and hid them in a good place. About a week later I tried the same game on the east side of the river, and had, I thought, plenty of time, but when I had just started I saw a train coming a good way out east. You can see a long ways east of the city on the track. I had to stop before I had it as I wanted it. I was trying to loosen a rail right over the first culvert east ot the city. The train came along and it too went over all right. I saw then that it was a freight train and I thought that I would go at it again, but the track walkers came so soon after that. When I started again I saw the express coming from the east and gave it up for a bad job. But I hid the tools in or near Ragan's nursery and de termined I would try it later on. Mr. Ragan found the tools and informed the company and after that I could not get any tools." Oreutt is indifferent as to his fate. He says he is in for it and expects to get at least fifteen years in the penitentiary for his crimes. W hen asked what led him to make his confession he answered: "Why when Detective Ray got me from the Rock Island police I soon saw that he had been watching me a long time, and some ot tne leiiows i Had been running with were really detectives in disguise and they pumped all out of me. I might as well own up when they had the evi dence." Oreutt says his mother died whn he was very young; he does not remember much about her. His father has always been good to him, but he had the train wrecking ideas in his head and he could not rest until he tried to carry bis schemes into execution. Aalatportnat Aasaclatlom of .

They were given a preliminary hearing before a justice of the peace, and in default of the necessary bonds were committed to the county jail at Aledo, both making confes sion before leaving. Miss Huyck was ar rested Saturday night at about 10 o'clock as being the acknowledged accomplice of the two youog men, having secreted money and articles taken from both places. Tbe preliminary hearing was, owing to the lateness ot tbe hour, de ferred until today. The arrests were a great surprise to the general public, though not so to a few who assisted the officers in tracing the crime to the guilty parties. The Jader berg store at Swedona was entered two or three times io succession last winter, and a considerable amount ot cash taken, together with a goodly supply of cigars and tobacco. But the largest raid was committed some months after at Ophiem, a small town, about three miles east of Swedona, in Henry county, the restaurant and store owned by S. J. Ickenbom, being entered and over $75 worih of watches, jewelry and other valuables taken. Since then the officers have been secretly at work. and have gradually tightened the coil of evidence about three of Swedona's most popular young people- Chi Id berg is not more than eighteen years of age, and is considered one of the most handsome and stylish fellows in tbe neighborhood, and not long since entered Lombard Uni versity at Galesburg with fine prospects. He is well connected, being the son of Leander Child berg, a prominent and wealthy citizen of Richland Grove town ship, and very respectable.

She seems to love her work, and to put her whole heart and soul into it. 8he has a demonstrative personality, and she knows bow to ezers cise it. She has a style of her own, a novelty in her method and manner, quite distinct from any other artist in ber special line. She never misses a point in the words she has to utter, whether hum orous or pathetic. She can also deliver little bits of sentiments with exquisite tenderness. Her dancing is really in spiriting; we have not seen anything so full of animation and graceful ease. Criticism of the drama is unthought of in the presence of so strong and fascinating an individuality. Mr. J. K.

The Iowa slate railroad commissioners met at Davenport for a five days' session yesterday, to hear and consider the com plaintB of tbe wholesale merchants and the manufacturers in Davenport against the Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific rail road, the Burlington, Cedar Rapids & Northern and the Minneapolis & St. Paul railroads jointly, and against the C. R. I. & P. and the Chicago. Milwaukee & St. Paul railroad company separately, for exorbitant rates charged in the transpor tation of their manufactured articles, goods, wares and farm products. Hon. James 1. bane, ot mvenport, appears as counsel for the complainants, while there are present on behalf of the roads. General Solicitor Fish and General Freight Agent Bird of the C . M & St. P.; Thomas Wright, attorney for theC R. I. & P. ; General Solicitor Tracy.of the B C. R. N ; E. . Cook and John C. Bills, attorneys for the C, R. I. & P. General Freight Agent Sage, and other road officials and stenographers. The claim of the jobbers of Davenport is that the railroad companies mentioned are unreasonable in tbeir freight charges out of Davenport, and discriminate against the petitioners. Yesterday was consumed in examining Fred Wild, commissioner of the tri-city shippers' bureau, and a number of the whslesale merchants of Davenport. Concerning the C.,M. & St. P.Commis- sinner Wild furnished some interesting in formation as to the Iowa dis tance freight tariff of May 10, which gov erned the roads until Aug. 13, when it was slightly changed by tbe roads; the freight tariff Davenport to different points in Iowa on the C, R. I. & P. sued December 20 last; the tariff issued by theC., R. I. & P. Chicago to points in Illinois in August a year ago, which ruled up to the time it was changed De cember 30; the Iowa distance tariff is sued August 13 last, at present in force, which changed the May 10 tanH some little, and other tariffs. Then he looked at a statement showing the average rates of the tariffs compared with that ot May 10. He said the latter document was pre pared in his office. Several other liriffs marked as exhibits given and also his comparisons to show the average of in crease over tariffs used before May 10, and comparison of Iowa tariffs in with those in Illinois. These tariffs in dudea ngures on the three roads com plained of mileage tariffs, terminal tariffs, distance tariffs, through tariffs j and every other class and Mr. Wild ex plained the differences. Concerning the business of the C, U. & St. P., Solicitor Fish made some inter eating statements. It operates 5,695 miles of railroad and receives 650,000 gross, less than it did iu 1887. Con cerning the general business of the Mil waukee, he said $30,000,000 of tbe capital will not receive 1 per cent dividend, and the balance of (21,000,000 wyi not re ceive 5 per cent. The company has put a mortgage of 2,500.(KK) to pay a divi dend, and the dividend was necessary in order to preserve the credit of the com pany. The investigation will occupy almost the entire week and some interesting in formation to Bhippers and manufacturers promises to be developed.
