Two Hen Arrested on this Charge ,
On the 12th of July a building , on
Tenth street , near the bridge , was
destroyed by fire. Itwas occupied
by Conrad Meier , who had his furniture -
nituro and other articles insured for
$1,250 in the Germauia Insurance
Company of Freeport , Illinois. It
was discovered some time after the
fire , that the articles insured
were not worth more than
$50. This caused an" investigation
into the matter , and an agentof the
company arrived here a few days
ago for that purpose. The result
of his labors and those of others
warranted the suspicion that the
building had been set on fire. A
warrant of arrest was accordingly
made out for Meier , and also one
for Charles Landsberry , who is
charged with being an accessory to
the crime. Conslable James Ne-
ligh Saturday arrested Meier ,
and constable Simpson captured
Landsberry. The two prisoners
were brought before Judge Porter ,
who bound them over in the sum
of $2,000 each for their appearance
at the next term of the District
Court. Landsberry procured his
bonds , and Meier is endeavoring to
do the same.

THE IOWA TRAIN ROBBERY ,
Confession of the Leader of the
Gang Who Did the Deed.
The train robbery on the Chicago ,
Bock Island and Pacific railway
last year , It will be remembered ,
created a great sensation not onlj
in this city , but throughout thf
whole country. The following , from
the Kansas City Times , will be oJ

SHERMAN , Tex. , Aug. 16 , ' 74. ' '
As I am the man who killed
James H. Reed , the Austin and San
Antonia stage robber , on the IGtL
Inst. , in Lamar county , Texas , I fee ]
it my duty , as Reed'a dying confes
sion was made to me , to send a few
lines to Missouri for publication , to
let the public know that McCoy and
the James and Younger brothers
have been persecuted in Missouri.
Reed made a confession , and I be
lieve he spoke the truth , for I can
not believe that one so bravo as
Reed was , would speak anything
but the truth , when ae was positive
that he had only a few moments to
He would not implicate any one
but himself. Hesaid he had robbed
stages in Nevada , California , Oregon
gen , and Arizona , and that he was
the leader of the Iowa train robbery ,
the leader at Ste. Genevieve and at
Gad's Hill ; but he declared to the
last that McCoy , and the James and
Younger brothers had no hand in
He said he was the man who ? hot
young Rozier at Ste. Genevieve ,
I had been pursuing Reed for sev
eral weeks on the charge ofrobbiug
the Austin stage end I ctme upon
him at noon when he stopped for
dinner , in Lamar county , Texas , 15
miles northwest of Paris : Reed re
sisted and I was forced to shoot him.
He lived two hours after being shot.
He was very brave and deserved a
better cause than the life he has led
since the war. During the war he
served In Shelby's "Iron Brigade , "
and no better soldier ever lived.
Reed said that lie had never
robbed a poor man , and that he
was not afraid to die. He had
$1,000 in gold on his person when
he was killed. He said that he
had $20.000 in gold buried , but re
fused to tell where it was.

Mysteriously Missing A Young Gil
Leaves her Home at Midnight
under Suspicious Circum
( From the Council BluQs Globe )
"What is this country coming to , '
is a question that is just now seri
ously agitating the Globe , and , ii
common with it , hundreds of goo <
people in this part of Iowa. Occa
slonally are we tempted to concludi
that further missionary effort on ou
part would be worse than useless
buta thought of what the conditior
of affairs on "the slope" would in
evitably be were it not for our evan
gelizing influence , deters us froir
becoming "weary iu well doing. "
The last case illustrative of thi
natural cussedness of human na
hire that has come to our notice ii
of a rather mysterious character
and occurred in the family of Jas
Peat , superintendent of the Grange
warehouse at Creston. Mr. Peat's
residence , however , the reader musi
understand , is within the limits o :
Adait county , where the family is
greatly respected by all acquaintec
therewith. A night or two ago i
daughter who slept in an uppei
room , disappeared froto her apartment -
ment In the morning it was found
that a ladder had been used at a
window of the room , and two men
in stocking feet were tracked
from the house to the
prairie. The girl's track
not being seen it is thought she had
been chloroformed. On the same
morning a man and a young
woman boarded the train at Creston
and went toward St. Joseph , who
are thought to have been the par
ties. Mr. Peat started in pursuit ,
declaring that he would capture the
man or perish in the attempt He
says if his daughter went voluntari
ly he will let her go ; if not , her ab
ductor shall die.
The girl is but seventeen years
old. Last winter an eM r daughter
of Mr. Peat voluntarily eloped with
the same peroon suspected of this
last adventure. Mr. Peat at that
tin.e captured the parties and
brought his daughter home , beading
her to Minnesota directlyaftetward.
It is qui'.e likely this may be another
voluntary elopement , but this , of
coqrse is "mere conjcture. The name
of the adventurer Is not given in
the Afton News , from which we
glean the above narticulars.
