MADE A FOOL OF HIMSELF. Dow QoTcranr Rolea Intuited the TV if of Slonx Cltj' 3ITor. Sioux City, Iowa, Oct. 20. It turns out that the lady who caused such a scene by offering an ear of corn to Governor Uoies when he visited the corn palace last week was the wife of Mayor Palmer, a democrat, and one of the governor' strongest supporters. After hi speech at the opera house the Governor Was escorted to tlie corn paiace, wuere a masic bail was in prorj-ss. As he passed through thji crowd a lady handed to him an ear of corn, as was done to President Cleveland when ho visited the corn patac a few years ago. Gov ernor Uoi?s frowned, threw the ear of corn on thfc floor aud turned his bae'e on the. lady. Ho was standing in a conspicuou8 place, and hundreds saw ins conduct, the governor has so com mit t"d himself against corn that he construed the innocent act of one of the If uding ladies of the city as an in uigouv. wnea an car 01 corn was offered Mr. Cleveland under similar circumstances ho put it inhis pocket with a pieasant remark. STANFORD WOULD NOT DECLINE. California's Ssuator Try I hit to Rag th Alliance Nomlaat Inu. San Francisco, Cal.,Ot;t. 2'J. Senator Leland Stanford through tho columns of his personal organ, the Weekly Argus, makes another piteous appeal for a presidential nomination. In a long double-leaded editorial tho claim is made that the Farmers' Alliance- ha already come out in favor of Stanford. and that hu will receive the support of tua southern states. California and New Yo'k are aNo claimed by the Cali fornia millionaire. Of the altitude of the southern states the article says: The southern tites ntve a thorough and lively recollect on of the spirit of independence and justice with which inator Stanford voted for the confirmation of Lamar as judge of the Pnited States Supremo Court under Cleveland's administration in spite of the op!sition of the bigots of his party. His action upon the force bill is still afresh in the minds of the peo ple. "It is such acts and sentiments as theie which stamp the character of the man, and show that ho can be depend ed upon to legislate not for class, but forawholo community. With Presi dent Siinford in the White House in March, 1833, the country will have good reason to congratulate itelf upon the acquisition of a chief executive who w:ll careful y guard her honor and her inu rests."

In ihe iint ef fort he succeeded in flicking a lock and was caught as he was scaling a wall, lirought back and placed in a more se cure cell, he sto'jd his bed on end and, ming it at a ladder, climbed to a window over the door. Then wrenching from its place an iron bar, he let himself o-it only to be caught ou thoouUide. An attendant was then given him as a room mate. On an other attendant coming in with a pa.il of water to clean the cell Hastings skipped over the pail and in a flash had got outside and locked loth men in the cell. In trying to leavo the building he opened tlie wrong door and was caught in a bath room. Placed in another cell th? boy wiii'gled through the iron bars to the outside of a eecond-st ry win. dow, whence he lowered himself to the ground. The lad bus excited great public interest, as it ia conceded that unless reformed no prison in the United Kingdom will prove equal to restraining him of his liberty, and the authorities are trying to find someone who will undertake his reformation and education. He has an engaging manner and outwardly there is nothing f the tough about h:ni. He lo at pres ent awaiting trial. I - . Monument to TlMan. :New York. Oct. 2'J.
