for board and clothing from $G7. 000 to
f 75, 000. Tho amendment was lost.
Then the house took up the appropri
ation for the Hospital for tho Insano
at Norfolk. The only man who had
an amendment was Luikart, who
wanted $500 additional to start a lawn
and plant shade trees. He did not get
it. A strong effort was made to pass
Ihe appropriation for the state peni
tentiary uutil after the investigation
committee had made its report;, but it
didn't go; the item was adopted as re
ported by the ways and moans com
mittee. The recommendations of the

He thought tho legislature needed all

Plucky Iowa Girls Blad Their Fatbar-s
Boose, Iowa, Tib. 9. "Mary and
Kate Grabenhorst are the hefclriei of
Boone County. Their father, F. H.
Grabenhorst, a German farmer living
ievcn miles northwest of Boone, sold
his hogs a few days ago and was known
td hate considerable tHoney in the
house. Joe Ross, living it Milfordj de
termined to rob him. For this pur
pose he laid in Grabenhorst' s barn in
tcridin t kill him there and then
murder the rest of liib family in the
house, burning the building atter'wafd
to conceal aTl traces of the crime. Gra
benhorst went to the barn in the
course of the afternoon when Ross

horst's arm, breaking" ft btrac, Tbe re

Mrs. Grabenhorst f&d lief two dausfh
ters came to the assistance
of the wounded man and
tackled Ross. A struggle ensued, but
Kate, the youngest girl, managed to
get the revolver and beat Ross on the
head with it until he was insensible.
She would1 h'ava killea.him if her sister
had not stopped her. Then the' Women
bound the fellow hand and foot, and
while two stood guard over him the
other ran to the nearest neighbor's,
about a half mile off, for help. Lying
in the barn yard bound se
curely, with the mercury 15 de
grees below zero, Ross would have
frozen to death, but the woman
were more humane to him than ha ln
tended td be td theiri and took him
into the house. His hands vere' frozen
as it was. When help came Ross was
taicen in a sleigh to Boone and deliv

and has confessed to the above story,
alleging, however, that he had two

JACK CLIFFORD NOT QUILTY.
Tha Homestead Strikers Sear Apother
Victory la Court
PirrsBrito. Pa.. Feb. 9. Jack Clif
lord, the1 Homestead Strike leader
charged with the inufdgr of P. jT. Con
nors during tha famous barge battled
on July G, was acquitted.
Since the Homestead trials began
there has not been such an attendance
at the court house as there was yester
day. Every inch of space was occu
pied and many persons were unable to
get inside the doors. The day was
devoted to the arguments of counsel
for the defense and prosecution and
the charge of Judge Stov"d
After being dut abottt four hours it
ivas announced that the jury had
agreed on a verdict. The defendant
was brought from jail and placed in
the prisoner's box, where he nervously
awaited the result The jury then
filed in and the foreman annonnced
the verdict of not guilty. An out
burst of applause was speedily ehecked
by the court officers. Clifford heaved
a sigh of relief at the announcement,
and was immediately taken back to
jail on the other charges pending
against him. He still has indictments
for treason and riot to answer for.
To-morrow an effort will be made to
secure his release on bail.
District Attorney Burleigh's only
comment on the verdict was to say!
"We will try each one of these cases
as they come, and the responsibility
for the verdicts rests upon the jury
and not upon us. All the cases will
be tried iucluding that of Chairman
H. C. Frick. Hugh O'Donnell will be
placed on trial next Monday."

Relations with the Hawaiian Enrojs
Washington Feb. 9. The Hawaiian
annexation commissioners and Dr.
Mott Smith, the Hawaiian minister,
had another interview this morning
with Secretary Foster at the State
department. As was tho case with
the two previous interviews, this was
entirely informal, being confined to an
interchange of unoflicial views upon
the subject of annexing the Hawaiian
Islands to the United States. Nothing
was said about the time when the com
missioners shall be received by Presi
dent Harrison and thas formally recog
nized, 3nd the determination of this
date will depend upon the nature of
the advices from Honolulu, which are
expected to reach San Francisco to
morrow. Senator Kays Ho Waa Dragged.
Cheyenne. Wyo., Feb. 9. J. D. Wood
ruff of Lander received the Republican
vote in the Legislative balloting for
United States Senator yesterday. The
vote stood; Woodruff (Rep.), 21; New
Baxter (Dem.), 2. It is conceded by
New's friends that the Men ton Connty
man is "not in it" It begins to look
as if the Populists would not vote for
any Republican or Democrat, either.
The sensation of the hour is the alle
gation of old "Uncle Jimmy" Kime, a
Senator from Fremont County, who
says he was drugged by the friends of
a certain candidate, and that for
eighteen hours he did not know any
thing. These charges, it is said, will
be fully investigated and a lively time

If a million dollars Or so will be spent
by the electric companies In laying
conduits in SL Louis this year. Th
Bell Telephone Company and one of
the largest electric lighting companies
have alreddy applied to the city for
permission to put ddwft conduits, and
another telephone company, which in
tends, to compete with the Bell ana
iitfrXr rates is asking the Assembly to
give it a tfdiichips for the same pur
pose. The new telephone eompany has
bought a conduit nlrcady laid in the

the Bell and the lighting company will

Most of the trade of tho Indian Ter
ritory is directly tributary to St.
Louis, and the city is consequently
taking the lead in movements that
have for their object, the opening of
these lands for settlement The mer
chants here, however, go further than
any proposition1 for the opening of the
Territory that has yet ben advanced.
They want the whole Territory
opened, the Indians who own the"
lands to be given their pay at once by
the United States, and a convention of
Western business men is now proposed
to t?ke steps to carry out the rlan.
The convention will be held here, and
probably about the time the new Con
gress asserrf '!"?.
The public library of this city, which
is one of the largest in the country, i
at last to be made a free library. It
now belongs to the school board, and
that body will be glad to get rid of it
if the c"it7" trill undertake tho cost of
its maintenance, which is considerable.
It is not intended to put il into the
hands of the municipal oflicerd, but ta
endow it by subscription, and at a
meeting of the most wealthy and pnb-
" lic-spirittftl men of the city the other
day, it wns decided th;;t this should be
done thfc year. The library has just
moved into a new seven story build
ing which cost nearly half a million

With the first thawing touch of
sprinc; on the frozen streets, hundreds
of pickaxes will be sunk into the
ground for the track-laying on three
new cross-town lines of street rail
ways. The city has now enough
roads running along its breadth, from
the river t6 tile western suburbs. It
only needs more lines to cut these at
right angles, particularly over the
rapidiy growing western part of the
It is really becoming difficult to
count the new hotels which aro in
tended to be finished in St Louis by
next fall. If the builders carry out
all their contracts, nnd from the num
ber of men working at foundations
down town, there seems to be reason
to think they will, the city will be
r.ble to provide half a million people
with rooms by next October when the
crowds begin to rush in to see the fall
festivities. So far, all the hotels pro
jected have been located near the cen
ter of business down town, but this
week the contracts- were let for an
other one, an eight-story building di
rectly opposite the new Union depot,
