BOSTON STORE , Fotherlngham , Whltelaw & Co. , Council Bluffs , la. ftlmlspcur < > . There is nothing that delimits an intel lectual audience , or oven an audience do- licicnt in "intellect but still Intelligent cnouirh to appreciate the naked human soul vivid with all phases of feeling and passion , so much as a Shakespearian recital. The mighty thoughts of the mightiest mind over produced by the human race have a charm and u fascination for all people. Consequently quently It goes without saylmr that the men and women who gatheicd in Chamber's hall last evening to listen to John J. Fr.iinev's ro- cltais were well pleased. Those who have been familiar with Mr. Frainey since ho has been studying the matter bard with a view to giving recitals on the Bostruir. , were able to detect a very great improvement in his rendition of the various selec tions given Inst evening. Mr. Frainey has been a close student of Shakespeare all his life , and has all the great master's lines at the end of lii.s tongue , and is consequently well equipped for giving an evening's enter tainment that will suit nny kind of an auaieneo. Ho never misquotes nnd brings out the hidden meaning and grandeur of every line. His voice and stage presence create a favorable impression thai grows with each selection. While not attempting to Impersonate the character , yet his earnestness and entire loss of self-conscious ness brings the character in flesh and blood before the eyes. There is no doubt but that Mr. Fraiuoy will make a success of the work he has undertaken , and that future audi ences will bo still more highly dellchted than were the ladies and gentlemen who listened to him last night and were so well pleased. _ Clmmborii' Daiit'liiR I'riirtlcc.

Waste In fuel , The opinion scorns to bo gaining ground among the city ofllclals that if there was a mistake made when the present city build ing was put up It was in selecting heating apparatus. Thcro are thrco buildings bo longinir to the city within about fifty feet of each other , nnd each building has Its sop.ir- rate heating plant. The main building is heated with steam and the Jail and- the patrol house with stoves. A comparison of the figures in the city auditor's possession shows that moro money has actually been spent during the part of the winter that has passed in heating the two smaller build ings than in the larger ono. The 11 ru in the jail is attended to almost entirely by the prisoners , -who are rather reckless- to theamountof coal they use. While the building was In process of erection the plan was suggested of having all three buildings connected by pipes and heated by the steam plant. This could 1m vo been done at an additional cost of about 300 , but the aldermen , In a spasm of sup posed economy , said no. It Is said that all three buildings could bo heated In this * way with llttlo , If any more fuel than is now used for the main building nlono , and the plant now in use would undoubtedly bo suf ficient for all purposes , for it has never yet been run to moro than one-quarter of Its ca pacity. If the buildings were connected by steam pipes the change would bo paid for in two years at the outsldo in decreased coal consumption , to say nothing of the ad vantage In iho way of economy , It is probable that something of this kind will bo done before next fall. _ Favorable Inducements will bo offered to" a few reliable and energetic agents who will solicit for the Mutual Life Insurance com pany.

The big game hunter , Corlndo , has returned from Mntabeleland , and In an Interview with an Associated press correspondent gave a stirring description of Captain Wilson's fatal pursuit of Lobcngulu. He spoke very highly of the great assistance given Captain Wilson by two Americans of the name of BIrnan and Ingram , who ac companied Wilson's party and did daring scouting during the campaign. He said : "When Captain Wilson's party was first attacked by Lobengula's escort he sent the Americans hack to Major Forbes , who was stationed on the Shanganl rlvor , to get re- infdrcements. After a most perilous ride under lire the Americans reached the Shan ganl , which they found to be rapidly rising , and they had great difficulty In swimming the running stream. During their ride they heard continuous firing .behind them. "The arrival of the Americans with the tidings of Captain Wilson's peril created great excitement among Major Forbes' force , which Immediately started to aid Captain Wilson. But they were soon at tacked and forced to retreat. On the fol lowing night the position of Major Forbsa' force was so dangerous the two Americans were dispatched to Qulowayo for reinforce ments. The Americans , after stealing through the enemy's lines , rode almost con tinually , at times in the greatest peril , for three days and nights , until they reached Bnlowayo. They were almost dead from fatigue "when they reached there , but were able to tell their story after a short rest. They were overwhelmed" with atten tions by tlie force at Bulowayo and arrange ments were made to send n relief column to the assistance of Major Forbes. The Americans accompanied It back and when they reached the Forbes 'party they found them In a deplorable condition. They had lost 120 liorbos , had run out of provisions and had been compelled to eat horses and their clothes were In tatters. " AVIl.I , UK Olt WIHHU NOT ? Mr. ( Jliiilxtonn's llenortvil Itenlgnutliui De1 nleil I'nll Jlnll Persistent. LONDON , Fcb.-l. The statement of the Pall Mall Gazette that Mr. Gladstone in tended to resign ofllce almost immediately caused a great deal of excitement through out the country. The report was nowhere credited , however , and those in the best position to know refused to entertain any idea 01' its truth. .Last night a dispatch was received hero from Sir Algernon West , who is with Mr. Gladstone at Biarritz. Sir Algernon said he was authorized to declare that the state ment was untrue. Today , however , the Pall Mall Gazette persists that its story was correct. The paper says , ; "Tho , an nouncement was made with a full sense of the responslbilty. We were prepared for an oflicial dentil , but wo wore not prepared for a virtual confirmation of its accuracy from Mr. Gladstone himself. The Pall Mall Gazette says : "Sir Algernon West's words tire : 'Tno statement that Mr. Gladstone has definitely decided , or decided at all , to resign is untrue. ' Obviouslyall turns upon the exact meaning which at taches to the word 'decision.1 The whole denial is an elaborate endeavor to prepare his supporters for the stop ho has decided Intake. It is now manifest that his tenure of olllco Is limited to months. If not to wooks. His withdrawal moans the disrup tion of the party and a general reconstruc tion of all parties. This , with the possible exception of Mr. Gladstone's perversion of home rule , is the most important political event since the repeal of the corn laws. " While the liberal papers generally profess to bo satisfied with the denial , others are in clined to partly agree that the answer Is a riddle. The majority of the general public is now inclined to accept the report as true. TIIHii ; VOLU.MKS OK MiTTKHS. Dr. Curl Herz Will 3 < ul < t ! Publics .Somo Intcr- cstliiK I'aimnm Document * ! .

Cliamberlln , who was arrested yesterday on a supreme court warrant charging him with fraud In obtaining $3,175 from Joseph 13. Paisley ot this city , for 100 shares of stock of the Fort Worth Park Place Land company , made the following statement this evening : "The allegations of fraud and deceit are absolutely untrue and not founded on facts , but a perversion of them. In the spring of 1800 the Chamberlain Investment company In connection with Hon. Uobert McCart , William Copps and Henry B. Tolland efFort Fort Worth , purchased of Sir. Van Zandt , president of the First National bank , 430 acres of land In the suburbs of Fort Worth , paying therefor * 18SL 40 , of which $4SSSO was cash and the balance in flvo years , $31,490 annually. For purely local reasons the title was taken by Messrs. McCart and William Copps , and they gave the notes to Mr. Van Zandt. He having a prejudice , wo were told , against accepting corporation notes , no mention of a corporation was made to him ut the timo. "A company was Incorporated under Colorado rado laws to take over and operate this property. I believe the directors were : Mr. McCart , H. W. Tullunl and T. B. Balleydgo of Fort Worth , H. B. Chambcrlln , R. J. Cliamberlln , A. W. Chamborlln and F. B. Gibson of Denver. "It was decided to Issue the ontlro capital stock , 5,000 shares. In payment of the land , subject to the mortgage , which was done. Later the shares were Issued to the parties In Interest in purchase as follows : Chuinber- lln Investment company 2.1SS shares : II. W. Tallant , 312 shares. For Messrs. McCart nnd Copps 2.COO shares were placed In the hands of II. W. Tallant , trustee for the tlmo being , as they were negotiating to sell a part of the land to the cily. At the same tlmo a deed was given to the company for 439 acres of land and , 11 declaration of trust , and allowing it to bo held In trust for the Fort Worth Park Pluco com pany until It was thought wise to put the deed on record. , , , , "The company wa na.vlseil of the sale of forty acres of the land to.the city for a park , but some compllcatlin ) < ! "a'roBe , which finally prevented the consummation of the plan. Meanwhile wo may havpjreported the verbal Information wo had' received to some ex- tpnt. The land wasiiiot , Baleablo , as we ex pected , and interest * bpcumo duo. Mr. Van Kandt did not foroclifeu and the company still continued possession , , and , ownership through tlio deed declaration .trust , regularly payIng - Ing tuxes , etc. ' ' "While I was In Vorr'-Worth In January last I had a cansultaflou , with Mr. McCart looking toward Heimrlng from Mr. Van Zandt to each of the shareholders to whom shares hud been mild ( $30,000. In all ) , the proportion of land' ' thulr purchase would bear to the whole , subject ! to a proportionate Incnmbrunco In' cuso , pf ( foreclosure. This would glvo for each $5,000 Invented about ten acres , mibjcet to' ' nn Inciiinbranco of $350 per acre , each bhart'holder holding hlu land In security. This proposal was ac cepted by Mr. Van Xandt. "During my absence last month In Eng land the parties Interested In Fort Worth completed such nn arrangement with Mr , Van Xanilt that the land was deeded back to him , three years Interest being In arrears , and Iho shareholders are now canidderlng the proposal to receive each his own proportion of the land , and the Incumbrancu of which he had notice when ho bought the land. "There has been no tlmo when the Fort Worth Park Place Laud company did not have possession aid | title to the land under the deed ot trust , or when the rights of any shareholders were Imperiled for an Instant. "I liavo never promised an advance In value , but have told my honest belief , which is very different from the surety claimed. " The advance In value from its cost , about. $450 per acre , ' to the price at which the shares were sold , $800 , came far from put ting through the entire length of the land an electric railway , building motor works and other Improvements , costing altogether about $5,000.000.
