It is reported that "tho mayor of my

that Vaughnn thinks Chiipninn should

had not run , I'ereival would have been
elected mayor , instead of Chapman. The

Chief of Police Skinner has received
another letter from the wife of John
? almcr , known as "Lone Wolf , " con
cerning whose death and burial there has
) ccn so much in the press. The poor
woman Irid not heard from him for six
nonihs before his death wns announced ,
ind thus attracted her attention. There
las been much talk about whether ho
was in the army or not , and on this point
lis wife writes that she knows ho was in
the army , but she has not yet found his
nipors. Slio encloses a clipping from a
laper published at Wahpoton , Dakota ,
tvhich had been preserved in a scrap
jook , and which will bo read with inter
est by many who were acquainted with
liim here. It is as follows :
"Quite a crowd gathered last night at
the corner of Dakota avenue ami Fifth
street to hear the remarkable oratorical
powers of a man bearing the cognomen
jf Crazy Jack , at the same time patron
izing his certainly cheap wares , lie was
accompanied by n man named John
L'almer , who appeared to have followed
the different callings of artilleryman ,
government scout , Indian interpreter ,
actor , nnd doctor of medicine. In this
character he now appears before the
public canvassing some Indian remedy.
"On Thursday morning Aline Host
Smith of tlio Huadquartcrs.scated beneath
the hotel porch , remarked to some gentle
men , among whom was Palmer , that the
thunder reminded him of the roaring of
tlio guns at Gettysburg. "Gettysburg ? '
interrupted Palmer. "Which side of tlio
river were you on V" Smith replied ; one
question led to another , nnd tlio Indinn
doctor actually reminded him of many
things done which ho had long ago for
gotten. To make a long story short.
Palmer and Smith had actually entered
the same day together. They joined the
Fourth New York Independent battery
on tlio 21st of October , 1801 , and for three
years they fought side by side , being in
sixteen dillbront engagements. Among
others were the blockade of the Potomac ,
siege of Yorktown , several short engage
ment at Williamsburg , battle at Fair
Oaks , Alalvern Hill , second battle of
Bull Run , Frcduricksburg. Chancellors-
villo , and Gettysburg , wdere they lost
three guns presented to thorn by Parrot ,
inventor of the cannon bearing his name.
John Palmer afterwards went as a scout
for the government , and when ninny
years had passed these two meet again nt

Tlio Crawford County Mystery.
The further details of the murder of a
man whoso wife is found living in Craw
ford county , are thus given in the Bulle
From Air. Rus. Whipplc , a detective of
Eau Claire , Wisconsin. , who was in Dcni-
Bon Friday , wo glean the following par
ticulars of the murder of tv Crawford
county man : Late in September last n
man appeared in Eau Clair , driving a
team wlilch lui deaired to sell. During a
conversation on this matter Air. Wlupplo
incidentally learned that ho was from
Iowa anil that his nnmo was Dan Mo-
Lain. On the 20th of that month
AlcLain disappeared and n few
weeks Inter Jus body was
found in a creek ncnr that city. His
throat wns cut from cnr to 'ear and his
feut wuru tied together with a hitching
strap. The remains were idcntilied by
Whipplu as thosci of AlcLain , The team
was traced to a purchaser who had bought
the out lit for $50 , but the murderer es
caped. Little could be done until some
thing definite was learned as to AloLain's
antecedents. Chicago and various Iowa
eilies were visitcil and detective agencies
conMiltcd , but all to no purpose the
homo of MiiLuin was a mystery. Finally
Whipple. bethought himself of the old
wagon that was sold by McLain's mur-
durer , nnd he hunted it up and examined
it carefully for u uluo. In faded lettering
ho found thu imprimt of its
maker "K. A. Liddle , Dculson , Iowa ,
1870. " By referring to the map
he saw tlnitDonUou was a small town ,
and reasoning that the wagon must have
been used in the neighborhood of the
factory , ho came to this pluco. With
litthi cllort ho learned that AlcLuin for
merly lived on thu Gould place in East
Koyur township , and that he left this
county some timu last August. McLain
was well known in Denuon , and his her
rlble death will create a sensation hero.
His widow who , it seems , learned
of his death shortly niter It occurred ,
but'whp failed to make it public , has
since married Krcd Litka nnd , wu lourn ,
on the Dan Gillutt farm. There
Are no clues ns to the murderer , ami the
search has been given up , Air. Whipplo's

A Grant ! Hotel ,
There are negotiations pending by
which it is expected that Council Bin Us
will have ere long ono of the finest hotel
buildings in this part of the world. There
arc about fifteen citizens who have al
ready expressed their willingness to in
vest $5,000 each to start with , and it is
expected that the move will result In the
erection of a building to cost $130,000.
The site talked of is that now occupied
by the Pacific house , the intention being
to build clear to tlio corner of Scott street.
The owner of the Pacific house property ,
Mr. Aloirof Now Yorkwas hero Wednes
day , and proposals were made him nud

ulso pending for llio purchase of the ad
joining nroncrty , so as to make tlio site
of tlio hotel extend to Scott street. If
this move is carried out successfully , tin1 *
city will have a hotel building which will
prove a great improvement , indeed. It
ir , expected that the matter will bo fully
decided upon within lifteen days. The
site is one of the best in the city lor hotel
purposes , but it this cannot be secured it
is understood that an attempt will bo
made to secure another , and go ahead

A Coast hi } ; Carnival.
Tlio reappearance of snow causes a re
vival of the project for having a grand
coasting carnival , which was arranged
foi some time ago but indefinitely post
poned. The committees have been dis
cussing the matter , and tlio prospect
seems good for having such a carnival on
Saturday night. All depends upon the

From Major to General.
From the Hotel Gazette : Last fall ,
while a drummer for a New York house
was opening a new route in Arkansas , ho
took pains to let everybody know that ho
was "Alaj. Smith. " UMiis little scheme
worked pretty well to secure him the best
room in several hotels , and to have his
opinion sought for on the weather , the
European situation , etc. , but there was a
snag waiting for him fifty miles further
on. He finally struck a hotel wlicro his
room was in the garret , nnd his bed a
lonesome object to behold. Ho held the
tallow candle above his head nnd made
nn examination of the surroundings , and
then walked down stairs and indignantly
demanded of the landlord :
"Sir , do you suppose that I will accept
of any such quarters as tho. o ? "
" , but it's the
"Sorry , major very sorry ;
very best I can do. "
"Butj-ou must have better rooms ? "
"Oh , certainly ; but I go according to
rank. The generals get the best , the
colonels come next , and I stow the majors
away in the garret. It's all your own
fault , sir. "
Next day the drummer promoted hjin-
self to general , nnd ho hung to the title
until ho left the state.
A Useful Itiiukum.
Washington Letter : Tlio Bunkum bill
has been the talk of thu town during thu
past few days. The words have already
become synonymous with all that is use
less and worthless. As an instance the
following story is told in tlio hotels to
night. Them was a great gnmu of
poker begun Saturday afternoon between
two senators nnd three members of con-
gross. It lasted until after church time
yesterday , when one of the congressmen
.went broke. All his money , his watch
and several duo bills had been parted
with. He had nothing more. Finally ,
in shorn- desperation , ho staked a printed
copy of his last hill introduced in the
house. It wus a Bunkum bill. It won
the "pot , " as ono of the senator ex
plained in my hearing to-night , "because
nobody in this world could make itgood. "
If this doesn't indicate how badly Wash
ington thirsts for a now joke nothing else

Tlio Ideal Newspaper.
Says an old newspaper man to "By
stander" in the Philadelphia NUV.S ; "Tho
ideal daily will bu sixteen pages , Harper's
Weekly size , pasted and cut , and it will
soil at H price which , will give good nrou't
on-tho circulation. It will not duplicate
tlio news in the e.ditoriul columns. At
first Right you will bu apt to think it has
no news , for it will print no dispatches us
, und will not glory in lluuiing
head-lines. All the news , local included.
will bo written out ill readable form , and
in the same articles whatever comment
may bo necessary will bo made. The
typo will bo largo nnd the paper clear.
People don't care a rap how papers get
the news so they do .ect . it. It doesn't
concern anybody but newspaper men
whether a dispatch Is special or not , and
newspapers arc not' printed for the read

A Font of 11 Woman.
Airs. Jennie Roelir , : i handsome young
widow , had Airs. Schadt , a fortune teller
in St. Louis , arrested Friday on a charge
of fraud. Mrs. Roehr's husband was a
wholesale jeweler and died four years
ago , leaving her three children and some
little property , and she states that on his
deathbed he advised her to marry again.
On recommendation she went to sec Mrs.
Schndt. The latter out the cards and
finally told her that she would marry a
nice blonde young man. Airs. Roelir
knew such a young man , and the fortune
teller proceeded to work her occult pow
ers on him in the form of love powders
which cost the widow from ? . )0 to $100
apiece. The powders were blown through
the keyhole of the nice blonde young
man's bedroom , but for some reason or
other they didn't have the desired effect.
The widow claims that she paid Airs.
Schadt altogether $1,450 , and , failing to
get tlio husband , wanted bur money back ,
and it was refused , llenbe the arrest for
fraud. , J

He Didn't Care to Pile on Fortune
Wall Street News : Ono day last fall n
strange woman appeared at a farm house
in Indiana and announced that she was
a clairvoyant , who had come down froni
Chicago to show the farmer where to dig
up a jug containing $20,000 in gold.
"What's the charge ? " inquired the
"Two thousand dollars in advance. "
"Shoo ! that's outrageous. "
"But think of it. You will have
$18,000 left. "
"Y-o-s. I suppose so , but I reckon we'll
lot the old jug rest , for a while yet I
drawed $50 in a lottery last month and I
cleared $7 in a bucket shop this week ,
and I don't kecr to pile it on too thick.
Even now tlio old woman wants now
hocs nnd the gals are crazy to have the
? louse painted two coats.
Ho ( meeting her at the church door to
escort her homo ) "That was a beautiful
hymn the service closed with. "
Ho "Aro you fond of hymns ? "
She "Weil , there's ono 1 may say I'm '

He "Indeed I What kind of metro is

She "It is a como an' meet-cr him. "
Then they linked arms and strolled
away with their heads close together.
