A Mysterious Dantti.
Ncnrly ttirco months ago. on the evening
of Jonunry 23 , Martin Hlnklc , a coal-heaver
employed as n nlent tnun nt the yards of the
Northwestern Hallrond company In this city ,
disappeared nnd tins never been seen nllvo
by his friends since that tlmo. His disap
pearance was advertised In the city papers ,
but nothing was hoard of him. Foul play
was suspected , but there was nothing to
prove It nnd the nffalr was branded "mvs-
torlous disappearance , " nnd speedily forgot
ten b all but Intimate friends.
Last Sunday morning so mo fishermen In
raising ttioir net at a point several miles be-
Hclluvuo , on this side of the river , wore
startled to find n "llontor" entangled In Us
meshes. The body was held for Identifica
tion , and Mrs. Hlnklo learning of the occur
rence wont to Ucllovuo nnd Identified the rc-
nmlns as those of her husband bv means of
a pair of mittens , a handkerchief , pocketbook -
book nnd n pipe. The body was in such nn
advanced stugo of decomposition that the
railroad companies would not receive it ,
consequently Mrs. Hlnltlonnd n son drove to
Hollovuc and returned last evening with the
rumniiis , in n wagon. The funeral will take
place at 2 o'clock this afternoon from his
late residence , corner of Ninth street nnd
The question now open for solution Is :
How did Htnklo get Into the river ! Two
theories are advanced accidental death nnd
murder. In support of the Ilrst it Is stated
that the deceased was n poor man und hud
nothing to tempt a footpad or highway
Ho was intoxicated when last seen alive
on the evening of his disappearance. About
12 o'clock that night ho parted company with
Mr. E. Foldisch , at the residence of the
letter , on Fourteenth street. Hlnklo passed
on to the south , but should have gone north.
FoUlisch called to turn that he was going In
the wrong direction , but Hlnklo said ho knew
what ho was about , and passed on out of
sight to his death.
It now duvelopcs that there Is n dark side to
It will bo remembered that on the night of
February : i , a gang of six car thieves were
arrested for breaking open cars in the North
western yards. Their stealings had extended
over a perloa of several months. Several of
the parties were follow workmen of Hlnklc ,
nnd ho had been approached by them and in
vited to share in their nefarious work. Ho
refused , and was severely * beaten by ono of
the numbsr , and threatened with death if he
ever Interfered in.their affairs or breathed a
word of what ho knew about them. Ills
death followed shortly nftcrwnrds. These
nro the facts In the case , and they call for a
most rlu'ld and thorough investigation.

Yesterday was motion day in the district
court. During the uiurning session Judge
Dccmcr ruled.on several cases , nnd rendered
decisions on inattors which be had hold
under advisement , for some tlmo.
Among the latter was tluit of Young vs
Cosgrove. The case involves the ownership
of u fifty-foot lot Just south of the Mcrriam
block , between Mnln and Pearl streets. It
Bcems that the defendant , who is the bishop
of the Catholic dioccso of Iowa , represents
St. Francis Xuvior's parish , of this city ,

The original "Catholic church property"
embraced a tract between Main nnd Pe.irl
streets , and extending 200 feet south from
Willow avenue. It transpired that thcro
.was 230 feet In the tract in question , and the
Catholic people claimed the whola strip.
The plaintiff alleges that they nro only en
titled to the 200 foot called for by their deed.
The court decided in favor of tlio plaintiff.
The defendant , who is represented by Messrs.
Wai a & 11 virice , has signified his intention of
appealing the cuso. D. C. Bloomer , csq. ,
looks nfter the Interests of the plaintiff.
The court ruled upon the application of
Robert Wilson for temporary alimony , pond *
ing tbo result of the Wilson-Wilson divorce
cnso. The court stated that he did not think
that tbo aftlant Wilson should complain of
his board , as ho ate at tbo sumo table as tbo
rest of the family , and alimony on that ac
count was denied. However , ft was ordered
that the defendant , Mrs. Alice Wilson , pay
MOO to the clerk of tbo court. $ UO for the
fees of nfllant's attorney , nnd the remainder
to bo also nt their disposal for the purpose of
securing ovldcnco. The attorneys of Mrs.
Wilson took exceptions to the ruling.
In the divorce cnso of Nicholas vs Nicholas
las , the decree was granted as prayed for.
Decrees of divorce were also granted in
the cases of Brunon va Brunou , and Bean vs
The court ruled in favor of the plaintiff in
the case of Bloomer , administrator , vs Ellis ,
and issued a decree of foreclosure.
In the Yodcr attachment cases the ruling
was that garnishment does not constitute alien
lion on personal property , und thut gar-
nishor'B claims did not como In before ether

settled nnd dismissed , defendant paying
In the afternoon the court hoard n motion
to rule out affidavits in the case of Fores-
hplmor Si Co. vs Stewart. This case is a
veritable chestnut , and nas worn out ono sot
of attorneys. Fllckingcr Bros , formerly
represented the plaintiff , but have given

SLAIN BY ELEPHANTS.
Tragic Dentil of Hcvrn Men In nn
In Captain Wissman's now book describing -
scribing his trip across Africa is n very
striking picture representing two ele
phants chasing hunters , black nnd
white , through the tall grass. The only
hope of the hunters is to gain the bank
of u river near nt hand nnd strike out
for the other shore. The enraged brutes ,
with trunks and tails nl < 5tt\iro tearing
through the grass nt tbo'top of tholr
speed , nnd they are ubduUlho ugliest
customers ono could incdi. The story of
n very tragical elephant li\int \ luw just
been told by Captain Br < 5s"soland of the
French army , who served nwhilo ago
on the commission which determined
the boundary between French Sono-
gambia and Portuguese Now Guinea.
Arriving on the banks of the Rio
Grande Captain Brossoland requested
the natives to take him on nn elephant
hunt. They promised to do so ns soon
as olopllants wore reported in the neigh
borhood. A few days later some natives
came rushing into the village and said
they had seen the tracks of a young ele
phant , nnd as they saw no other tracks
they thought the rest of the herd must
bo on tlio other side of the Httlo Koliba
river. Their experience told them that
the young elephant would not remain
long away from the rest of the herd.
Captain Brossolnnd happened to bo ab
sent from the village and the hunters
could not await his return. So eight of
them sot out after their prey , and the
fact that Brosscland was left behind was
the luckiest incident of his life. ,
The eight hunters had plenty of pow
der and ball and big English muskets
which they could load to the muzzle.
Through the tangle of vines and
thickets they traveled until they struck
the trail. Suddenly they came upon n
clearing where thev saw the animal , al
most a , baby elephant , before them.
They were astonished that its compan
ions had left it alono. The young brute
scenting danger , began to make tracks
for the forest. Several shots were fired
at it , and the sorely wounded animal's
loud cries of distress echoed far through
The hunters started toward the olc-
phnnt , keeping , liowovor , in the odgoof
the timber , wnoro they would bo loss
exposed to an oironslvo sally from their
victim. All of a sudden they heard
cries responding to those of the young
elephant. The hunters at once compre
hended that they were in danger. The
ether elephants were not far off. and
were running in answer to the erics of
their comrade. The blacks immediate
ly abandoned their victim , which had
fallen to the ground. They could hear
behind them the cracking of the under
growth as the ponderous 'animals hast
ened to the scone.
Unfortunately for the hunters they
ran into a ttiicket of thorny slirubs ,
through which they could not force
their way. JAftor a desperado effort to
got through they ware cbmpollod , with
bleeding limbs , to turn back and suck
some hotter route. They had gone but
a few stops when they sa\f Ilv elephants
rushing toward thorn. yurthor flight
was impossible , and so w th their eight
guns they blazed away , at the enemy.
The bullets hit the mark , but an ele
phant is hard to kill by a front shot ,
and the animals witht redoubled fury
rushed upon the helplessme"h. ]
Seven of the men worp'lifted high in
the air' on the trunks" the animals
nnd then dashed to the ground , broken
against the trees and crushed under
foot. One tnan made his escape and
hurried back to the village , whose people
ple were horr6r-strickotij3 | t his reeitaU
A strong party was sent out to the scene
of the tragedy. The seven victims
were found so terribly mutilated that
their own relatives could hardly recog
nize thorn. Ono of the live elephants
was on the ground so seriously wounded
that ho could not movo. The young
elephant , whose cries had brought the
comrades that bo terribly avenged it ,
was dying and others had disappeared.
Steam Engine Acuinst Dsvll Fish.
A few days ago , at the end of the
Naples wharf , a forty-foot pile of about
ono foot in diameter was loosely tied
with ono hundred feet of cable , says an
exchange. The hands suddenly noticed
the cable running from the coil , and be
fore any one could secure it. both nile
and cable went moving rapidly to sea.
A devil fish had got entangled in the
cable. Boats were at once becured and
started in pursuit , and after a two-milo
race they captured the line and log , the
monster having become loosened , which
fact accounts for them being able to
overtake it. When wo1 consider that
this species of ray attains a weight of
three thousand to live thousand rounds ,
and strength to correspond , this is not
Some months ago the passengers of
the Fearless harpooned ono of those fish
steamers near San Carlos bay , and after
towing the steamer for some
time , the engine being reversed and
pulling against him , they were com
pelled to cut the line to prevent being
carried on the Snnnibol bar.
