The last Iowa crop bulletin pays:
The last week was unusually cold, the
daily mean temperature ranging from
8 to 12 degrees below normal. Frosts
occurred In all districts, reported as
"•heavy" or ‘'killing" in the western
counties, and " light" in the balance
of the state. The damage resulting
from the frosts in the state as a whole
appears to be relatively light. The
percentage of unmatured corn was
small and the damage to that portion
of the crop has been mainly In killing
a portion of the leaves, thereby im
pairing the value of the fodder.

In the island of Samar yesterday
was sent promptly by General
Hughes, commanding in that island,
to General Chaffee, at Manila, and by
him transmitted to the War depart
ment. It reached the department dur
ing the early hours today and Ad
jutant General Corbin, realizing the
importance, at once made it public,
after sending a copy to the White
House. General Chaffee’s dispatch,
which agrees with the Associated
Press, is as follows:
“MANILA, Sept. 29. — Adjutant
General, Washington: Hughes re

The news created a sensation in
official circles. It was the first se
vere reverse that has occurred for a
long time. Still the officials were not
unprepared for news of just this char
acter from Samar, in which the rev
olution started by Aguinaldo still
continues. Samar Is a country about
as large as the state of Ohio and the
American forces of occupation num
ber in all between 2,000 and 2,500
men. These are distributed among
various posts in the Island, a large
number being located at the more im
portant centers. Spain never made
any efforts to occupy Samar and it
only has been for probably three
months past that the United States
has undertaken that work. The lat
est report made by General Hughes
to the War department was that the
number of insurgent rifles in the is
land aggregated about 300. The Fil
ipinos earr.ed on a guerrilla warfare
and operations against them were dif
ficult. The disaster to Company C
of the Ninth infantry occurred, it is
believed, while it was engaged in an
expedition to clear the country of
roving bands of these insurgents,

attacked while at breakfast indicates
the daring and pluck of the insur

(ihoala or Grave Dynamiters Reported to
Have Made ao Attack.
CANTON, O., Sept. 30.—A strange
story comes tonight from West I-awn
cemetery, where a company of regu
lars from Fort Wayne, Mich., is
guarding the vault in which the body
of President McKinley lies.
It is to the effect that the guard
on duty on top of the vault fired a
shot at one man who refused to heed
his challenege and that the shot was
diverted by another man who appear
ed from another direction. Also
that an effort was made to stab the
Military regulations prevent either
the officers or the men of the past
from being quoted on any matter con
nected with their service, and for
this reason Captain Biddle, who is in
command, was obliged to decline to
be quoted at the camp tonight. He
will make a full report to his super
iors at once.
Reliable authorities made the fol
lowing statement: Private Deprend
was on guard duty on top of the vault
at a point commanding the entrance
below and the approach from the
rear. Shortly before 7:30 he saw
what he took to be the face of a man
peering from behind a tree about
forty feet from his post. He watch
ed it for twenty minutes, he says,
and at 7:45 saw' the man hurry to a
tree ten feet nearer. He challenged
the man to halt, but this was not
heeded and the fellow approached
nearer. Deprend levelled his gun
and aimed to shoot for effect, but just
at that Instant another man who
came toward him from the opposite
side caught the gun, threw it up and
the bullet was spent in the air.
PRELIMINARY TO MESSAGE
President Requests Cabinet Members to
prepare Their Report.
WASHINGTON, Sept. 30.—At the
cabinet meeting yesterday only routine
matters were discussed. The meeting
was attended by Secretaries Hitch
cock and Wilson, Postmaster General
Smith and Attorney General Knox, the
only cabinet member in the city.
It was determined that the cabinet
officials should begin at once the prep

enable him to prepare his first mes

Regarding the action of the Hawaiian

When the law was first enacted the
companies united to make a test case
of the' matter in the United States
court. A temporary injunction was
issued by Judge Munger restraining
the state officers from enforcing the
provisions of the law and this injunc

The companies had made provisions
to avoid penalty in case they should
lose the suit and at the same time
maintain practically the same sys

had sought to destroy. A. G. Beeson

state inspector of insurance for the
companies doing business in the state.

FOR VIOLATING NLW GAME LAW
Rportgmen Fined for Hunting Without a
DAKOTA CITY, Neb., Sept. 30.—
Sheriff Sides' office here took on the
appearance of a camp of the state
militia, when Deputy Game Commis
sioner C. P. Counsman of Omaha
stacked up four guns, piled up several
hundred shells, tied up a dog and
hung up a string of four hell-divers,
four mudhens, one turtle dove and
one duck, and at the same time plac
ed in custody of Sheriff Sides, Alfred,
Edgar and A1 Richardson and George
Hare of Sioux City, charging them
with violations of the Nebraska game
law. They are accused of being non
residents hunting and killing wild
game without the prescribed license.
The defendants were brought before
County Judge Enners. They pleaded
guilty, but said they were ignorant
of the law and that it was their first
trip to Crystal lake in quest of game.
Since this was the first arrest in this
locality under the new law, Judge
Enners was lenient with the offenders
and fined them each $5 and costs.
Crystal lake, with its two pleasure
resorts, is a good place for Iowans to
hunt and fish, as it is only two miles
from Sioux City. The movement to
enforce the law is strongly backed
by local sportsmen and residents. Be
fore his departure Deputy Sheriff
Counsman will appoint a resident dep
uty to enforce the law. The attorneys
of this place will refuse to defend
any violator of the law. but will as

HIE NORFOLK ASYLUM FIRE.
Remaining Property Figured to Re
Worth SI 70,000.
NORFOLK. Neb., Sept. 28.—Superin
tendent Teal had the old cornice at the
top of the wall around the ruins of
the hospital taken down. A force of
workmen has put in steam, electric
light and water fittings in all the re
maining buildings. Things are in bet
ter shape to handle a fire now, as
there Is better pressure. All inmates
remaining are comfortably housed and
each patient h&s a separate bed.
Members of the state board who
were in Norfolk found things in much
better shape thap they had antici
pated. The institution will be able to
take care of 150 patients. The damage
is not as heavy as at first estimated.
The value of the property saved is:
Furniture, bedding and carpets, which
have all been put under shelter, *5,000;
buildings untouched by fire, the chapel,
a two-story brick building, having the
kitchen and a large dining room on
the first floor; the laundry, a two
story brick building; the engine and
boiler houses of brick; the storehouse,
a two-story brick building; two large
frame structures; several boilers, en
gines, pumps and dynamos; the tunnel
leading from the boiler room and
kitchen to different parts of the main
building, which contain water and
steam pipes and wiring, and the walls
of the main building, which are
worth half the original cost price,
making a total of *70,000. The land
is estimated to be worth *100,000. It
has been estimated by an architect
that *75,000 will put the burned build

WILL REBUILD AT NOREOLK.
State Officials Sure Hospital Repairs Will
Cost Less Than £00,000.
^ LINCOLN, Sept. 28.—It may be
stated as a certainty that the hos
pital for the insane at Norfolk will be
rebuilt on its present site. Land Com
missioner Follmer and Secretary of
State Marsh returned from Norfolk
and it is learned that both are op
posed to removing the institution.
They are confident that the destroyed
portion of the building can be replacac
for slightly over $50,000.
- “We have not arrived at any definite
agreement,” said Secretary Marsh,
“and will not until all members of
the board can get together for a meet
ing, but it is very likely that plans
will be made for rebuilding as soon
as possible. We have investigated the
ruins thoroughly and Governor Sav
age and Attorney General Prout will
go to Norfolk and look over the
ground. After they return the board
of public lands and buildings will hold
a meeting and make the necessary
arrangements. It is safe to say that
the institution will be rebuilt at Nor
folk if we can find some contractor
willing to do the work and look to the
next legislature for his compensation.”
