for Rome tlni" past has cherished a secret
affection for a Diibuque man named Arthur
Poclkn , but for quite a while she managed
to conceal It from her huslnnd , who Is a
mate on a Mississippi river steamer

attachment a chance to sprout , and It was
not until about a week ago that Klaes re
turned from one of his trips and learned
the true state of affairs There was Imme
diately blood on the moon , and the row that
followed resulted In Klaes b = lng looked up
on two charges , assault and battery and as

PACIFIC JUNCTION. la , May 1. ( Spe
cial to The Bee ) The case of the state
against George McKnlght , charged \\lth as
sault with Intent to commit murder , was
called > c"stenlay before Justice Zaren.
On April 2C the defcndano assaulted John
Severick and t > on Herman with a knife and
Inflicted < ] ulto serious wounds on both
parties. The affray took place on what Is
known as "Hobo" Island , a place originally
located In Iowa , but cut off by a change In
the channel of the Missouri and left on the
Nebraska bide. McKnlght was Immediately
arrested and bi ought before a magistrate
at Bcllevue , Neb. , but the question of juris
diction was raised by McKnlght's attorney
and after a full hearing the" case was dis
missed on the ground that the point where.
the oftenno was committed Is In Iowa. The
complaining witness Immediately repaired to
Iowa and tiled a similar complaint bcforo
Justice Karen of this place , but when the
case was called for hearing Attorney Mc-
Namara of Omaha appeared for the defend
ant and again raised the question of juris
diction , claiming that the authority of the
town court extended only to the Missouri
river on the wct > t , and In import of his con
tention cited the act of congress admitting
the state of Iowa , which defines Its western
boundary as the center of the Missouri
river. The result was that the prisoner was

May L Samuel GoUlhlcr , n fanner of St.
Albans , his wife , ttmlly , their son , Joi-eph.
and D.ivld Gauthler , their brother , nre
burled under 100 feel of earth by the ter
rible landslide of Friday last. The principal
scene of the disaster Is eighteen miles fiom
the ncarcsl lelcgraph station , and thai Is
the reason why news of this terrible freak
of nature was nol given sooner to the out
side world , For miles there Is nothing but
desoiatlon. Where the St. Anne river was
once nearly a mlle wide , It Is now only a
narrow stream , raging and surging In a vain
attempt lo break Its bounds. Houses , fences
and rattle , all are gene nnd there Is nothing
left bill ban en ground of uneven height for
nix miles back. Here and there the debris
of the Ill-fated farm houses nnd granaries
nre seen In little heaps , langled up wllh
uprooted trees and Iho carcasses of dead
callle , but most of the wreckage has been
swept Into the river and carried long slnco
Inlo Ihe St. Lawrence , and thence towards
the ocean. The banks of the rher arc of a
peculiar formation and rise 150 ftel above
the level of the water , except for a mllu erse
so wheie the slide occuncd Here for almost
seven miles back the earth has a gentle
dccllvltj , and Is nearly level \\lth the rher ,
whose bed has rl en nl least sKty feet.
What the scene musl have been when Ihe
earlh began lo move can be Imagined. The
lower ell of Ihe river bank Is composed of
clay , honej combed by Iho waler , Ihat for
years back has filtered thinugh Ihe moun
tains. It was fl o'clock In the evening when
these clay banks caved In and with the
hundreds of Ions of sand on top slid Into the
river. The farmers were Jusl prepailng for
Supper. The nolte was lerrlflc , bill was fol
lowed bj n sudden calm , for Ihe roar of Ihe
falls had been smothered In the crumbling
cmtli. The ground , however , kept on vi
brating as from an earthquake , and the
farmers for miles around rushed out of their
houses for shelter , which thej did nol know
where to nnd. After Ihe first panic was
somewhat allayed , they went back , but the
river had slowly risen. Snow and Ice , which
are still plentiful here , helped to strengthen
Its power. The waler rose for miles. II
was fully 100 feel high when Ihe earth began
again moving , slowly at first , then fnsler ,
and finally so fasl lhal Ihose who were
fleeing were Ihrown down. Il is a miracle
Indeed no more human lives were lost.
The ground near the river sloughed off
flrsl , and Ihe house ncaresl was that of the
Gauthlers , which shared Iho fale of llio
pulp mills farther down by the first break
In the shore. There it not the slightest
doubt bill lhal the poor Gauthler family nre
dead When the landslide slai ted Ihe house
was seen lo be on lire and even had
Ihey nol been burned "or smothered
to death , Ihey musl have been crushed
under the Immense quantities of earth thai
kept sliding on top of them. No one Is
reallj certain as to the exact spot where they
weic buried and it IH possible that the
bodies maj" never be recovered. II Is dllll-
cult to exactly describe the state of affairs.
The debris of the houses and the1 dead ani
mals arc situated In what was , bcfoie Fri
day , the middle of the river. Even today
It Is Impossible to cross the river , although
an attempt will be made to repair the bridge
at St Albans Ibis afternoon. All the boats
for miles and miles along the river have been
swept away. Thousands of people dally
crowd the banks and point out to one another
where the foims of their friends stood.
MONTREAL , May 1. A French evening

parish visited the scene of the disaster and
blessed the spot , then the rescue followed.

During the debate rlofih Martin , liberal

Canadian Pacific frclghl rales were so ex

a member of the liberal government In Mani
toba with having an understanding with
President Oakes of the Northern Pacific
railway by which .Manitoba wns debarred
from enjoying the shipments via that line.

there were statements on oath thai showed
Sir. Martin to have been , It not In col

.MANAGUA , Nicaragua , May 1. The gov
ernment is secrelly sending armed men Inlo
Iho Slosquito country. There appears to be
a secret understanding between Mr. Gosling ,
the British minister to Central America , and
Ihe president. The president has nlso re
fused to remove Commissioner Lacajo , who
Is known to be pursuing n policy In the
Sloaqulto country calculated to Incite the
people agalnsl American residents. Only
fear of the American warship San Francisco
seems to deter him from going to extremes
The Government claims to have routed and
destroyed Sloralln's baud.

O\er the Affair.
MlSSOUftl VALLEY. In. , May 1.-Special (
Telegram to The Bee. ) The coroner's Jury
Ibis afternoon relumed aerdlct that
"Roddy" Wilson oame to his death by being
hung by persons unknown to the Jury. A
largo number of witnesses were summoned
but no ele.v as to who comprised the lynch
ing party could bo ascertained.
Wilson's body was burled this afternoon
In the pot tors' field at Iho rounly's cost , no
one claiming his body and ho having had no
funds about his person.
Last evening n young man named frank
Crolbcrs was arrested at Slondamln on sus
picion of being the escaped Davis , he an
swering fhlrly well to Iho Inltcr's descrip
tion. Ho was held until this morning. .Mar
shal J. J .Deal nnd Policeman Wiseeup have
gone there to Identify him. Crothers showed
conclusively thai he had been nl work near
Mondamln during several days prior and
slnco Iho killing of Whitney. So no trace or
cley has yet been found of Davis.
The city Is very quiet since last night's
tragedy. No sjmpnthj seems to exist for
Wilson and his falc , allhough many regrel
that mob violence was resorted to. Wilson's
remains wsre In Losey's undertaking rooms
all day nnd were viewed by thousands of
spectators many of whom came from sur
rounding towns and cities
Who composed last night's mob Is n
mystery. All were securely masked and
apparently had a thorough understanding ns
to the work nt hand. There were a largo
number of saddle horses In th clly hsl
night , which fact leads some to suppose Ihat
the SI. P fs may have had something to do
with the affair. Thai Is n well orgnnl/ed
society , ttie object of which is to prevent
nnd punljh criminal offenses. It has b"en
a most wholesome organization In many In
stance in the past.
Wilson died game , refusing to disclose his
true Identity or thai of his partner Davis.
When the mob broke Into the Jail he asked
If he was the man they were looking for. A
short time was given him to make any state
ment he desired. All he had to say was
lliul Ihey might do what they pleased with
him. Ills nerve lasted to the end , there
being scarcely a tremor over his bodj' ns he
swung In midair. The body was cut down
at C o'clock and taken In suctody by Ihe
At the coroner's Inquest over the body of
Slarshul Whitney the Jury rendered a verdict
this afternoon that he came to his death by
two gunshot wounds from the revolver of
"Reddy" Wilson. The lateness of this ver-
dlcl wns caused by an adjournment Saturday
until 2 o'clock this afternoon.
