A nnmber of Milwaukee, Cleveland and
Marquette capitalists have combined for the
purpose of diviamg the iron Bessemer ores
with the schleismger syndicate, and will erect
large furnace in Marquette to reduce their
own ores. It is proposed to utilize the labor of
the convicts in the Marquette penitentiary.
The prison is located on the bay, and by using
the convicts in manufacturing coke the pro
moters of the plan think they can produce pig
iron as cheaply as it is produced in Birming
ham, Ala. The company has an option on a
number of mines near Xegaunee and Isbpcm
ing. The grand jury of San Joaquin county,
CaL, has presented its final report concerning
the case of Deputy United States Marshal

killing of the late Jndge Terry was intentional
and deliberate, and that, while the Constitution
and laws of the State require that a crime
against its laws should be tried thereunder, the
accused was taken from the power of the State
hytf scess emanating from the United States

amount of deposits, the banks hi)f j ...iplus

Charles Bseson, private policeman at the

ceived at the hand of Peter Nicholson, last
Tuesday evening. Nicholson was at the depot
with his hack for the incoming train. He was
Intoxicated and was ordered from the depot by
Beeson for using very improper lamruare.
Nicholson, instead of going, jumped down from

the hip and spinal column. Nicholson, who
was arrested for malicious shooting, is now
charged with murder.
The Department of State has received no

the waters adjacent thereto, shall be deemed
as committed on the high seas on board of ves

William P. Rogers, the general agent for
Missouri and Kansas of the Eqnitable Insur

in front of his home in Kansas City and dan
gerously wounded. Mr. Rogers was returning

from his door when one of two men, whom he
had noticed leaning idly against a fence as he
was passing, seized him by the arms, bending
them backward, while the other thrust a pistol
in nis lace, xne latter demanded his money.
Mr. Rogers tore the man from behind him and
tore aside the pistol held by the man in front.
Both the robbers then stepped aside and one of
them discharged his pistol, it being neld so close

THE HAT PROBLEM
has been solved by Kaufmanns. They have shown to the world
that a fancy label or name pasted inside of a Hat, while they may
form sufficient reason in the eyes of the "tony" dealers for an extra
charge of several dollars, does not really determine its quality. In
substantiation of this claim we simply show our $3 Derbys sold by
the exclusive hatters at $5, or our superfine $s Silk. Hats which
other. dealers ask $8 for. The qualities, shapes and styles are pre
cisely the same, but then we don't paste any English labels in our
