( Copyright , 1S9 , br the Assoclntwl Press. ) LONDON , March 7. The dlpistor suffered fcy the Italian troops In Africa has caused n crcat sensation In Great Britain , nnJ Is thouglit likely to lead to a fresh advance by the dervishes In upper Egypt. General Haratlerl'B defeat , It la generally admitted , must have nn enormous moral effect In Africa and diminish considerably the prestige of European troops of nil nationalities. The defeat at Adowa , moreover , seriously affects Italy's position In Europe , a number of contradictory reports arc In circulation. On one side , Uut-sla , France and Germany , are reported to have coma to some sort of an agreement upon their course In the future ; on the other hand , It Is said today that Austria la alarmed ! and la urging Germany to cement a better understanding with Great Urltaln , The latter supposition Is likely to bo correct , but the accomplishment of Aus tria's plan looks clllllciilt , as things now Bland. If It la true that Russia and Franco have been secretly assisting King Memctek against Italy , It would seem but natural that Emperor William , who has been leav ing no stone unturned to bring about marc cordial relations between Germany and Hus- i ia , should share with the latter power and Franco In a Joint endeavor to crush Italy's colonial aspirations In Africa , and by so doing strike a blow at Germany's loading colonial rival , Great Britain. ITALY ASKS FOR A LOAN. According to a leading provincial newspaper - - paper , Italy has applied to Great Urltaln for assistance , chlclly financial , and report has It that a largo Italian loan will soon bo floated In London. In addition , Impor tant communications are said to liavo passed between the two governments relative to the possible movement of Egyptian troops about the Upper Nllo Military men hero ex press much sympathy for Italy In her troubles , and several former Ilrltlsh army officers have already offered their services tj the Italian government for duty In Africa. In any case , 'thero Is no doubt that Italy has been hit hard by the defeat of General Baratlerl , financially , probably more than in the number of men killed. Much moro treasure must bo poured Into the sands of Africa , If the dreams of brilliant colonial achievements are to become realities , and In no country , probably not even In Spain , Is there a crowned head resting so uneasily as that of King Humbert at present. There it Is not astonishing that the best friends of Italy seem unable , In the emergency , to suggest a way out of her difficulties , which is likely to reflect credit on that country. If the war is pushed , the financial strain will bo dangerously severe ; If the African colonies are abandoned , the effect will be almost as dangerous. A middle course , the conclurton of peace with Abjsslnla , may nol bo possible If It Is true that France and Russia _ have been arming the Shoans. A great responsibility therefore will rest upor. the Incoming Italian ministry. The Ashanteo spoils have arrived at the colonial office , and are very disappointing. The whole lot Is said to be not worth more than 2,000. A * number of the articles arc hollow gold , Instead of solid gold , like those captured on the previous British expedition to Ashanteo. The Inference Is that , the supply of Ashnnteo gold has greatly dlmln Ishcd recently. The three , chief objects arc King Prcmpeh's crown , made of gazelli skin , ' lined with yeljow-i plush , each pldj ' of the'la'pel of the crown being'ornarrientet with pure soft gold , representing skulls ant jawbones of lion ? , the whole surmountei by two golden goats' horns ; the exccu Honor's gruesome badge of office , orna nientcd with gold representations of head less bodies , and with the executioner hold 4ng a drawn sword In the center , dceplj blood stained , and with the hilt ending In huge gold hall. ESTIMATES FOR THE ARMY. The army estimates , published yesterday ihow expenditures amounting to 20,940,770 an Increase of 100,000 over 1895. The secretary rotary of war , the marquis of Lansdowne in presenting the estimates said that recen events In East Africa make a reduction o the British garrison In Egypt Improbable The marquis added that special efforts wcr being made to provide the artillery with tb now converted guns , and that the recruit ing for 1895 was oatlsfdctory. with desertion numbering the fewest on record. The attention of the first lord of the treasury ury , Mr. A. J. Balfour , will be called nex week by Mr. T. J , Bowles , M. P. for Kings lynn , conservative , to the statements In th Spanish press that In the event of war between twoen Spain and the United States Spanls privateers will prey upon American com merco. Mr. Bowles will ask whether , I view of the complications and Injuries whlc British trade would suffer in euch an even or In the case of war between Great Brltal and a country which had not acceded to th declaration of Paris , the government woul consider the whole effect of the declnratlo of Parts and the advisability of Great Bril 'nln's withdrawing therefrom. The young radicals have broken out Int revolt against the pollcy'ot the older leader of their party. The dual leadership betwec " Lord Rosebery a"nd Sir William Harcourt I the source of dispute. Mr. Henry Laboi chore and others have long protested again : the radical ( that la the term now general ! applied to the liberals by the conservatives leader bolng In the IIouso of Lords.

According to the Dally News , the attltui of the pope , toward the .Anglican orders w possibly bo marked by a change In a fe weeks , Cardinal Vaughan and Canon Noy have produced a trenchant report , dealli historically with the whole problem , .and convicts tlic o orders under twenty heads heresy by negation or omission. The cons qucnt Invalidity of the situation between tl two churches thug becomes serious , and thane hano of ultimate papal recognition of t Anglican orders seems doomed to dlsappolc ment.

It appears that when Portugal p her foot down , on hearing of the propos transfer of propelty on Delagoa , bay from i German firm to the German government , t latter cave assurances that Germany wou not attempt such a step.

It became known to day that the ofllclal stalt of the captain gen eral , being Informed that Maces and his Insurgents three nlelils nco were camped near Tapaste , thirteen miles from this city , took steps to direct their columns of troops upon that place , under Generals MoljuUo and Bernal. The necessary orders were is- eucd In time , but the telegraph operator on duty at the palace , being tired out , went io sleep and did not rend the messages In the proper time. In spite of this General Iior nal engaged the Insurgent leader Mlrab.il , the latter bolng at the head ot GOO Insurgents , and Inflicted a loss of nineteen killed upon tbo enemy. . The Spanish forces operating In the dls trlct of Vaguajaj , near Calbarlen , provlnco of Santa Clara , have hail a serious engage ment with the enemy. Tao htter were beaten and left many dead and wounded on the field. Among the killed wcro govern ! In surgent leaders. It Is believed this band wna escorting the Insurgent government. Inspector Trajlllo has captured at Calscda a man named Galllnago Luis Redallo , who at the commencement ot the revolution went to Tampa , Fla. , as military Instructor and drill master for the men composing Roloff's ex pedition. Ho afterwards became Roloft's aide-de-camp and color bearer , subsequently escaped to New York , came back again ani ! was a member of the commission of the junta. Blenvcnedo Sanchez , the Insurgent leader , with a force estimated to number about 1,000 men , passed La Palma yesterday. Near Sabanllla , Matanzas a mulatto woman Teresa Crcspo , recently joined a band o Amazons and has been leading them In , sev eral raids , .during which they have discov ered a quantity of produce and have done much harm In the dlotrlcts ot the River Aura , ati.1 Li Palma. The Insurgent leaders Lacret , Ediurdo Garcia and Acevldo are .moving In the same districts. Gomez , after leaving ) the plantation of Do- lorta , burned 250 tons of cane. The Insur gents have burned all the cane fields ot the plantation of San Ignaclo , provlnco of Matanzas , and the buildings ot the planta tion of Coloso. Gomez yesterday morning , with a Cuban named Manuel Alonzo , was encamped at the plantation of Semlller , In the district : of Jacan , near Palmlllas , prov lnco of Santa Clara , The commander of the Maurlca battalion engaged 2,000 Insurgents at the plantation of Triumvirate. The Insurgents fought , and in retreating lost many dead and wounded. The Insurgents under Maceo , Mlro and Bacallo , numbering many men , recently cap tured a convoy of provisions , but a num . ber ot insurgents were wounded during' the skirmish. The man arrested by the authorities at Galsteno Is a Hungarian and not an Amer ican , as at first supposed. Captain-General Weyler has pust- received the following message from the home gov d ernment : "Your telegram Just received. It greatly satisfies ua that the public spirt . lias been revealed In the manifestations that you have received of sympathy , because of injurious attacks. The government thanks . these who have made protestations of ad hesion. The loyalty of these persons to the crown of Spain , the Spanish people will never doubt. " The steamer Santiago arrived today with battalllons from Garrelano and Calta. The reception ot these soldiers was even mor ? enthusiastic than the greeting accorded the Spanish troops , which'have heretofore landed upon the Island of Cuba' . . The" - ac corded to soldiers at Calceda Monte was splendid. They were received by thirty tribunes and the patriotic women of Havana crowned them with flowero. Senor Juventld , a promlent member of the conservative party , has turned over to Cap tain-General Weyler $3,0.00 , which will be i used to provide necessaries and comforts for the wounded Spanish soldiers. This money was the product of a theatrical entertain ment and a bull fight , recently given at Havana.

HIS CRIME FOUND I1III GOT Peculiar Olurgos Against an Old Iowa Oitizan , ACCUSED OF DESERTING HIS FAMILY Cherokee Mint the Vletliu ill n Ter- rlbliMlntiike or UEIH llretk n Double 1,1 To. CHEROKEE , la. , March 7. ( Special. ) On November 21 , 18D3 , the Milwaukee Sentlnsl published an article wherein Henry Uoddls , a highly respected citizen of tills pine ? , was accused of ilcoirtltig his family at Mllwaukca on or about October 20 , 1805 , and eloping with n charming widow by the name of Clara Mllllngton. A large number of pnpsrs of that date wcro sent to Cherokee and the entire - tire populace was plunged Into a furor ot excitement. Scarcely a person put any cteJ- ciico In the report. It was branded as a myth by the public , and members of the Hoddls family claimed that It wes the culmination of an unsuccessful attempt at blackmail ; and such may yet prova to be Hie case. Scarcely had the excitement caused by the flrot report passed away when the- matter was again brought to public no'.lco In a man ner which greatly Intenslfiesi the mysteries surrounding the case and causes gossip to break out anew. In the clerk's o.Tici tf Clier-- ksp county was fllsd a divorce potlllon , the title of which Is "Sarah J. Iloildls , plaintiff , against Henry W. Ito-ldls , defendant. " It al leged that thei plaintiff and defendant were married In the- county ot Milwaukee , 'n ' ttis state of Wtaconshi , April 17 , 18G2 , and lived tonether ns husband and wife until October 20 , 18C5 ; that October 2C , 1SC3 , the defend ant wilfully deserted the plaintiff and has ever sine ; absented himself from her without any reasonable or Just cause therefor. The petition charges Uoddls with having committed adultery with Clara Mllllngton on or about October 2G , 1SC5 , and that noon after that date the defendant left the city ot Milwaukee waukeeIn company wlta ! Clara Mllllngton , going to the town ot 1'ella , la. , where defend ant and Clara Mllllngton lived together as man and wife ; that some time after and about the year of 1SGS or 1869 they moved to Cherokee county , where they have since re sided. That the plaintiff hao hut little means or property In her own right and has not tlio means with which to prosecute tills suit. The plaintiff declares she bslleves that Uod- dla In 1S95 deedel away his real estate and confessed judgment In favor of various par lies which have become liens on his real estate for the sole purpose of getting his property In shape so that the same could not be reached by the- plaintiff or any portion thereof sub jected to Une support and malntenanca of the plaintiff. LATEST nEI'OUT OF THE CASE. The latest sensational report , In connection with this strange case , Is to the effect that Roddls 1ms "scotped" the Milwaukee woman , having already secured a divorce himself. The story , which Is doubted by a great many , runs about as follows : A year prior to the time the ecandal 'was Hrst made public , Rod dls left Cherokee , ostensibly to travel In the Interest of a llfo Insurance company , of which he was secretary at the time , and was only at homo occasionally until late last fall , when ho returned and has since resided \Uth his family. Gossip now has It that Hoddls was In South Dakota during his absence for the purpqse , of securing a dlyorco from his Milwaukee wife , and that a divorce was granted him by the Dakota courts ; that after securing his decree , the woman with whom he has lived for the past thirty years , went to some paint In Minnesota seta or Dakcta , whera she wan met by Rod dls , and the couple were lawfully wedded. If this be the case , alleged Mrs. Roddls No. 1 , stands a slim chance of getting a Judg ment for alimony'as criminal action would be the only chance left open In the courts. The fact that Mrs. Roddls made a trip north early In the winter , tends much to strengthen the Dakota divorce and marriage theory , though friends of the family refuse to accept It , and declare they will not believe any of the accusations made against Roddls until they are proven In the courts. Mem bers of the family were seen by the reporter , but they declined to say anything pertaining ) to the matter , other than to express a de sire that the Milwaukee aggregation may como and fight It out In the courts , as there was plenty of hot shot In etore for them , and that they would return to the brewery burdened city a sick lot. A local attorney , who is attending to mat ters at this end of the line for the Milwaukee woman , was seen , but ho conversed sparingly upon the subject. However , he Is confident that there Is a clear case against Roddls , and gave some of the points In the case which the Milwaukee people claim they can prove beyond any doubt. First , Rev. J. P. T. Ingraham of St. Louis , who performed the marriage rites , which made Henry W. Rod dls and Sarah J. Jones , husband and wife , at Milwaukee , April 17 , 1862 , will bo produced. Also a great many of tie wedding guests , whoso names are in .the possession of Mr. Smith , will bo present to testify at the trial , together with many other persons , who are familiar with Rcddls' early life. It is also claimed by counsel for the plaintiff , that they will prove that , October 20 , 1865 , Henry W. Roddls and Clara Mllllngton occupied the same room at the St. Charles hotel , In the city of Milwaukee , and registered as man and wife. The marriage certificate will bo offered In evidence , also a witness who con versed with Roddls on the train as it waa carrying him away from his wife and fam ily. In company with tlib Mllllngton woman. All of this , and much more , Is claimed by the plaintiff. plaintiff.CAREER CAREER OF RODDIS. Henry W. Roddls' early life , as told by Milwaukee parties , la as follows. Away back in the 50s two Englishmen , T. R. and Edward Roddls , came to Milwaukee from Now Hampton , Several years later T. R. Roddls went Into the packing business and accumulated a snug fortune. The financial panlo which was brought on by the Crimean war Injured the business and Mr. Roddls worried over financial matters until his mini became deranged and he was' sent to an asy- 'lum. ' Edward Roddls succeeded him in the packing business and made the establishment one of the largest In the country. Edward Hoddls bad a nephew In England , ot whom ho was very fond , and ho wrote for him to come to America , setting forth , as an In ducement , a good position In his packing establishment. This nephew was none other than the present Henry W. Roddls , and he soon became his uncle's confidential man and adviser , Tho. packing business In these days had not been fully developed. Most of the cattle - tlo were purchased In Iowa and the south , tlio packers sending out buyers , who bought In great herds ofcattlo , which ! were slaugh tered and the meat exported to Europe , As there wcro no bank facilities In these days the buyers were compelled to carry .great sums of money with them to pay farmers and breeders for sto k. This WAB the po sition that Henry W. Roddls held with his uncle , and explicit confidence waa placed In him. He was then about twenty-five years of age , and his responsible position gained for him a place In the front ranks ot so clety. lie became acquainted with Sarah , the daughter of Peter Jones , a wealthy and highly respected citizen , to whom he was afterward morrled. For three years they lived happily together , and two children , a boy and girl , blessed their union. In October , 18C5 , Edward Roddls called his nephew Into his office and advised with him on a plan to Invest some money In a plantation near Vlcksburg , Miss , The wai had just ended and northern capitalists were Investing In southern property , which was vary cheap. Arrangements were completed and tbo nephew , It Is said , was entrusted with $50,000 of his uncle's money , will : which to make a land purchase and to liuj cattle for the packing business. DROPPED OUT OP SIGHT. On the evening of October 26 , 18C5 , Henrj Roddla kissed hli wife and children good , bye and left them , aa was supposed , for the south. Weeks , irouths and xpars passed yet the husband and father did not return Letters and telegrams were tent through' but tbo south , but no tidings of her hus band came to the faithful and nearly dls. tracted wife , She finally gave up all hopes thinking thatho had been murdered In ttii south for his money. It reports are true , Roddla had an adven turous career after ho eloped from llllvtau- k o with the Mlttlngton woman. It Is sild that ho traveled In Europe for over a year with his new love , that they wcro ship- \trccked anil that ho lost considerable of his money. About a year ago a Rev. Mr. Slldcll ol Milwaukee wag visiting near Cher okee , and In a conversation the name of Henry Roddls was mentioned. Mr. Slldoll remcmbereJ Iho Milwaukee Roddls story and ho at once begin nn. . Investigation and reported the results ot the f nie to the Mil waukee imrtlei. His Investigation satisfied him that Hoddls was the same man who had disappeared from Milwaukee so many years ago. Mr. Raldls Is looked upon In Cherokee as an honest , l.iw-abUllng and reputable gen tleman. Ho has resided hero for nearly thirty yearo and Is known throughout the entire county. It the recent reports regard ing his family relations should be verified at the coming trial the whole country will receive a severe shock. TWO wquuvs HKCOUDS.
