ST. Louts , Nov. 29. Tlio details of u hor-
tlblo outrage , mtinior and suicide comes from

found in a clump of bushes near the roadside.
Tlio young woman's throat hud been cut
from cur to ear. Core was placed under
guard , und during the night committed t > ul-
clda by taking poison , thus escaping lynch
ing. The coinnci's inquest developed the
fuel Hint the girl had been outraged and then
Lnto this afternoon two coroner's juries
rotmncd their voidlcts. It was decided that
thu girl had been stiangled by Corb , and
that ho hud committed biilcido by taking
poison. Opinion is very much divided us to
tlio girl's death and the motive of the murder ,
if it was murder. Those who closely exam
ined thu place where the body was found say
there were many indications of u
severe struggle. Itvas on a hillside ,
where n tico hud fallen. Thcro
u ere a number of buckeye bushes growing
tli ere , and leaves had collected among them.
Twigs had been broken fiom the tico top ,
the bushes wore broken and bent , nnd the
leaves and dirt bora evidence of a scullle.
Mrs. Wray , mother of the dead girl , says

filnco last August , butthey wore not engaged ,
Shu says that the girl was engaged to an
other school teacher , named Homer , who
lives in the neighborhood , nnd had been so
engaged for iwo yc.us. Corb was u school
teacher , but lias not taught for more than a
your. It Is admitted that no outrage was
committed on the girl. Her throat was not
cut , but there woi a bloody linger prints , as
though she bad been ktruugled.

thooppicssion and prosecution which drove
him from Germany. His name , ho said , was
Herman Faust , a rabbi , thirty-nine years

After appealing' in vain to the authont.es ,

Democrats "Will Try to Admit Four
Territories Tills .Session.
WASHINGTONNov. . 29. Mr. William M.
Sprii.ger of Illinois , was on Pennsylvania av-
enuoyesterday afternoon. "Wo are going
to try very hard to p iss a bill admitting to
tlio union tlio tcrtitories of Washington ,
Montana , Dakota and New Mexico , " said he ,
"and we shall certainly piss the Oklahoma
bill at onco. The next house
will undoubtedly bo republican by
a small majority , and I suppose the republi
cans of botli tliu house and the senate would
have no objections to strengthening that ma
jority. The territories could bo states in
time to elect senators and representatives to
the Fifty-first congress. Montana , Wash
ington and Dakota are lepublican.
The senate may insist on tlio divi
sion of Dakota , and such action
would piobably block matters for awhile. I
urn in favor of any reasonable compromise.
I am , and have been , in favor of the udmis-
Mon of these tour territories on u broader
ground than that of politics. I sincerely hope
wo Khali bo able to pass un enabling act dur
ing the coming session. "

Tlic Parnull Commission.
Lounov , Nov. 29. Inspector Cr.mo gave
evidence before the Parncll commission
to day us to the progress of crime In Ireland
being coincident with the forming of
branch of the league. Wherever the league
organisation was started outrages followed.
Not every leaguer was a moonlighter , but
the majority of moonlighters were loagueis.
On cross examination tlio witness ud-
millcd that ho had never been able
to trace directly the connection
of persons convicted of outrages with the
league. Ceitainly no official of the league
had over been convicted. No crime had oc
curred in connection with the homo rule ugi-
tation of the extension of the franchise.
Uvery crime aiose over land disputes. Inspector
specter Kico deposed that ho had always
understood that moonlighters executed the
behests of tlio league. On being cross exam
ined by Mr. Harrington , the witness said
that ho could not point out a single inst-'ico ,
supported by proof , where the league had
directed moonlight outrages.

LOXDOK , Nov. 2'J. Loid Salisbury , in a
speech to-day ut Edinburgh , utter returning
thanks lor a resolution of confidence in the

land was beginning to' realize the dangers of
Gladstonclsm , and was becoming unionist.
It was a matter for regret that Scotcli affairs
were so neglected , and that Scotland was
being ticatedby the legislature in inverse
pioportion to her piticncc. He trusted that
tlio government scheme of the local govoin-
ment for Scotland would prove satisfactory.
Ha urged tlio Scotch to put no trust in Glad ;
stone's homo rule promises , which , ho said ,
weio vague , bcoiuso within Gladstone's own
mind his plan wus undefined. Tlio now
homo'rule plan was concealed because there
was no plan to reveal. Tlio speech was en
thusiastically rcceivedby the audience , num

the organization of the great railroid clear

object of the now Irust or clearing house is

as representatives of other western roads.
Mr. C. P. Iluntington was found in his office ,
in the Mills building. He said :
"I am in favor of the policy of the meeting
in 01 dor to prevent tlio indiscriminate cut
ting of rates As things are now it is In the
lower of one man to break up rates for
ils neighbors und to destroy a great deal
of property , and the Inter-state commerce
law pi events' the speedy repair of the dam-
ago. Wo cannot go on as we are now going ,
as the roads will either have lo slop culling ,
stop paying interest , or stop running alto

iblo lo talco care of ourselves , pool or no
tool. Mr , Mldgloy und thoicstof them seem
to think wo can organize something which
will result In maintalningrcmiinorativo rates.
I very much doubt whether they have found
the right plan. Still , It may bo worth while
to try it. Tlio obstacle to success is the same
is to all former pools the difficulty of oil-
forcing a penalty upon delinquent roads. I
shall be glad to see something of lhu ( kind
tried , und something certainly must bo tried. "

States marshal's posse ns the officers drove
up In ftont of William Hook's at Hook's '
Point , In Hamilton county. Ho meant that
tlio eviction would bo soon over , for the
house was close to the public road , and the
poods nml chattels would have to bo carrlec
less than thirty feet.
V r.ip brought a black-eyed woman to the
door. She was flustered , and no wonder , for
8ho knew what the sudden call meant. Uo-

William Hook , and the wife of H. M Lucas.
Her father had gone down to Stratford , her
husband had gone in another diteetlon , n
her brother was out nftcr n load of shedding.
"I'll toll > ou how It is , " she said ; "wo are

two or three days we'll get out ourselves ani
not give you any trouble. "
The marshal said it was Impossible , The
papers called for immediate action.
"Well , go and BOO father first , " she urged
"Ho has been to town twice to see Mr. Snoll
but didn't 11 nd him. lie means to have at
understanding with him. "
Thomais-hal replied that he would send
after Mr. Hook , but meantime the eviction
must go on. Ho took out the long wnrr.m
and commenced to read. This was the sig
nnl for work.
"Might ns well make a break first as last ,
said ono of the posse , and ho picked up the
big rocking chair , carried it out and set i
down in ttie road. At the same time anothoi
of the posse led out a span of colts and tiet
them to the hedge. Iho improvements on
the Hook farm consisted of a ono-stoi\
house , a collection of big log stables , con
cribs , sheds and pens. Half of the posse
went to work in the house and the other ofll
ccrs ravaged the barns and sheds. Tlio Jol

down. A fine parlor stove , so hot it had to

There w.is u number of books. Tlio old gen

had had no notice till o came in sight of the

was a spirit of chrislljra resignation in all ho

"Yes " he added "that's what

oughter have done , and then wo wouldn't
have had this trouble. It serves us right. "
Tlio old man turned away from tlio Job's

I intended to buy this land of Mr. faiiell.
You see the man from whom I bought it , Mr.
Hurst , got it from the state when it was oon-

this subject , some days ago , announced thai
setllors wcro coining In lo Fort Dodge lo buj
the land they occupied , nnd tn.it thcro
would bo but fowmoro evictions , and no
violence was expected. That has provor
true. During the days intervening a largo
number of the settlers have made terms wltli
the owners or agents of the lands , nnd will
continue lo live wliero Ihoy have lived for
years. The few evictions that have been
uiudo during the past week have been made
quietly , without resistance , nnd have at
traded no attention. Now that the owners
of the hind have determined to enforce pay
ment or evict the settlers , they tire sur
prised in many Instances to find how wel
off some of these squatters aro. It is nol
surpiising when it is remembered that
they have lived , In some instances ,
for a number of years upon lam
which cost them nothing ut the beginning ,
and nothing siiu-e for rent ; so that ull lhe.v
made from their farms wus so much clear
gain. Mr. Hans ICundson , a Norwegian
who hnd been living upon land belonging tc
Mr. Klcluud Snoll , near Fort Dodge , wus
ouc of this kind. A wntof eviction had been
made out against him , nnd on the day before
it was to have been served ho came into
town aud told Mr. Sncll that IMS wanted to
settle. Ho hud lived for about n doen ye.ir
on u good , fottilo quarter section , which ho
badimpioved and was fairly prosperous.
'When asked what terms ho would give , Mr ,
Snoll said ho would let him have the land for
$15 an aero , but that ho should want part
down to hold the bargain , and the balance
could run on long time , lie thought the Nor
wegian , il be did not beg oft entiiely , would
want to pay ubout $100 down and wait a long
time befoio p iving the rest But , to his ns
tonislniicnt , ICundson said : < "I'll pay yoii
SI,200 down and the rest in thirty days. "
The settler had really gotten ahead so well
on his borrowed land that ho was about
ready to pay for it nil out of the profits
while he had been living upon it.
Other settleis who had been living for
manyyeais on land which had cost them
nothing , hud made sufficient money to buy
farms on other land where the titlu was not
in dispute , and when forced to pay up or
leave the land which they had occupied icnt
free , concluded to move and buy good Imul
adjoining , to which they could got n clear
title. Mr. Sncll was in Ibis city to-duy , nnd
will bo nbscnt from Fort Dodge for u few
days. During that limo Iheroill bo no op
portunities for settlement , nor wilt there bo
any evictions. Ho anticipates no further
trouble , and says that nearly all Iho soillei
on his land either have sctllcd or will selllo
for it , and would have done so before if they
