m Loig List of Prose
cutions, (From a Staff Correspondent.)
DES MOINES, June 4. (Special.) In
numerable arrests and prosecutions of
operators ot diamond contract schemes and
bome-bulldlng comjianies are threatened
In Iowa. It has been ascertained that ac
tions will be begun by Auditor of State
Merrlam through Attorney General Mullan
In order to make test cases. They have
been prompted to make the move by the
conviction in Chicago of two men who
operated a diamond contract scheme along
lines Identical with the contracts sold by
several companies In this state. The pen
alty Is from one to ten years in the state
penitentiary. Attorney General Mullan
disclaims any knowledge of the action to
be taken and the state auditor is at present
out of the city. Nevertheless It is almost
certain that proceedings will be brought
within a few weeks and an effort made to
suppress all business of this character. It
is also rumored that under the provisions
of the Grlswold law, passed by the Twenty-ninth
general assembly, that proceed
ings will be commenced against the home
investment companies and associations
conducted on the tontine plan to compel
them to immediately come within the pro
visions of this act.
Killed by Hock Island Train.
John Tyler, a farmer living between Dcs
Moines and Valley Junction, was instantly
killed by a Rock Island engine this morn
ing as he was walking along the track. He
was walking from his house down to the
pasture and it was convenient to go a short
distance along the track of the railroad. It
Is a mystery how the accident happened,
for it was a piece of straight track, but
the fact that he might have been watching
a train coming from the east on the other
track is supposed to explain his failure to
hear the signal from the eastbound train
which killed him. He was about 68 years
old and a native of Switzerland.
The attorney general has been Informed
that Mrs. Kubn, acrvlng a life sentence In
the penitentiary at Anamosa, has made at
least a partial confession and that she ad
mits having administered the poison to her
husband, as found by the jury.
