FOUL CRIME IN INDIANA.
Wealthy Woman Murdered
for Tier
Money.
Pana, 111., April 24.-The mutilated
body of Miss Jane Brunot. a wealthy
woman of Dana, Ind., " was found
bnried in an abandoned well on. the
farm of her sister-in-law near here to
day. Mrs. Anna Brunot, her son,
Henry Brunot, and Frederick Sibley
are under arrest in this city, charged
with the murder. The chief of police
says that the persons under arrest de
coyed Miss Brunot to the farm, and
shot her through the head, and buried
her body in an abandoned well.
Miss Brunot came to this city on a
visit about April 1. It is said she
brought- with her a valise containing a
draft for $500 and other valuables.
Neither Miss Brunot nor the valise
was ever seen after April 1. A few
days later Henry Brunot and Sibley
disappeared. The police learned that
the two went to Indianapolis, where
they, it is said, cashed a draft for $500,
and spent the proceeds.
On the strength of this clew, and a
letter from Indiana friends inquiring
for Miss Brunot, the three inhabitants
of the Brunot farm were arrested this
morning. At 8 o'olock the police
found Miss Brunot'a decomposed hody
in an old well. Her clothing was
found in the garret of the farmhouse.

DOUBLE ' TRIUMPH FOR QUAY.
Verdict of Not Guilty Governor ' Stone
Appoints Hlin United States Senator.
Philadelphia, Pa., April 24. Mat
thew Stanley Quay was today declared
by a jury to be not guilty of tho charge
of conspiracy to use for his own unlaw
ful profit funds of the state deposited
in the People's bank of this city.
The , court officers were unable to
keep back the struggling crowd that
pressed forward to oongratulate Quay,
when the verdiot of the jury was an
nounced. As soon as Quay could get
away from those anxious to shake his
hand and oongratulate him, he made
his way to the elevator to descend to
the street from the sixth floor of the
municipal building. Here the scenes
just enacted in the courtroom were re
peated. Enthusiasts rushed forward
and attempted to hoist him on their
shoulders, but he waved them baok,
saving "Oh, no; I'm too old a man for
that."
Quay walked with his friends to the
office of his counsel, where he made
his escape from the orowd.
Ilarrisburg, Pa., April 24. Shortly
after noon Governor Stone appointed
Matthew Stanley Quay as senator to
serve until the next session of the legis
lature. .
The appointment is addressed to the
president ot the United States, and it
is stated in the letter to be made under
the authority of clause 2 of section 3 of
article 1, of the constitution of the
United States. v
(The clause above quoted says:
" Seats of the senators of the
first class shall be yaoated at the ex
piration of the second year, of the sec
ond class at the expiration of the fourth
year, and of the third class at the ex
piration of the sixth year, so that one
third may be chosen every second yeai
and if vacancies happen by resigna
tion, or otherwise, during the recess of
the legislature of any state, the execu
tive thereof may make temporary ap
pointment until the next meeting of
the legislature, whioh shall then fill
such vacancies.")
ON A TECHNICALITY.
The Charge of General Miles Will Not
. lie Sustained. -
Washington, April 24. The forecast
of the beet inquiry report indicates
that the charges of General Miles will
not be sustained, although there is
such a mass of testimony to show that
bad beef was distributed to the army.
The .reason for this will be technioal.
Miles showed nothing in his oharge
against canned beef, but used the term
"embalmed beef." On this techni
cality it may be shown that the charges
were not sustained. .
The people will not be convinced
that the board was not packed- in the
interest of the war department. It is
also possible that there will be a de
mand for an- investigation by congress
from those who believe that neither
the war committee nor the beef board
was unbiased. The people are not
ready to accept the reason of the two
boards, who seem to sustain Algerisin
in the department.
Entire Party That Left Sea
side Perished.
CAUSED BY CANNED. FOOD
Bodies of Three of the Men Found
Parties Searching for the Fourth
: No Marks of Violence.
'Astoria, Or., April 28. Thatthe en
tire party that left Seaside April 7 on
a timber cruise are dead is an .assured
fact as the bodies of three have al
ready been found and search is still in
progress for the fourth, who was the
oldest and ' weakest member of the
party.
As soon as S. H. Doty 'a body was
found and brought into Seaside Satur
day afternoon, Louis Chance, known as
"Indian Louie," and John Burke were
engaged to start out in search of the re
mainder of the party, who consisted of
P. E. Heiktnan, a civil engineer, - ot
tliis city; V. T. Rad'r. a timber lo
cator, Of Portland, and A. J. Cloutrie,
of Seaside, who accompanied the party
as a guide, as he was thoroughly famil
ial with that section of the country.
This afternoon "Indian Louie" re
turned with the information that they
had found the bodies of Heiktnan and
Radir at the foot of Sugar Loaf moun
tain, some distance apart, and about
three miles from where Doty's body
was found. "Indian Louie" returned to
give the news, while Burke continued
to seaich for the body of Cloutria Ac
cording to information received, there
were no' marks of violence on the
bodies, and the cause of their death
can at the present time only be sur
mised, but it is generally supposed that
it was the result of eating poisoned
canned meat or vegetables.
A party started out from Seaside this
afternoon to bring back the bodies, but
it may be several days before they will
arrive, as it is about 15 miles, through
a very rough oountry. Some writing
may be found on one of the bodies that
may explain the cause of the cruisers'
deaths, but it now appears quite cer
tain that they had been dead longer
than at first supposed. . The, last entry
in the field notes found tin Doty "were
dated April 9, only two days after the
party had started out from Seaside. .
P. E, Heikuiann was 89 years of
age, and a native of Germany. His
father is now a major in the German
army. He came to this country about
20 years ago, and was employed for sev
eral years in the engineering depart
ment of the Upion Paoiflc at Omaha.
A. J. Cloutrie was 65 years of age.
He oame to this county from Portland
about four years ago, and lived at Sea
side during most of the time.
"Indian Louie" today made the fol
lowing statement:
"My opinion is that Cloutrie got
hurt in some wsy, and they all stayed
with him-until he died, meantime
exhausting all their provisions,
matches, eto. After Cloutrie's death
they evidently were lost, and wandered
about seeking to reoover their bearings.
Whether the supposition that the
death of any or all of the party was
tlue to poisoning from canned meats or
other edibles is true, there was noth
ing in their surroundings to indicate.
Cloutrie was one of the most practical
woodsmen in this section of the coun
try. According to thenotes found on
Doty's body, the party was th tough its
work and on its way out."
ARMY AT CALUMPIT.
MacArthur's Troops Before the Rebel
Stronghold.
Manila, April 26. On General

Progress of Lawton't Troops.
Manila, April 26. Although the
sticky condition of the ground, due to
a rain storm, seriously impeded its

San Jose today, and ..is expected to

Colonel Summers is marching from
Booave with two battalions each from

HAS ENTERED A PROTEST.
Germany Takes Exception to the Utter
ances of Captain Coghlan.
Washington, April 26. The German
government has entered a formal pro
test against the language used by Cap
tain Coghlan at the Union League
Club banquet. The protest was lodged
with Secretary Hay through German
Ambassador von Holleben. Secretary
Hay replied, that the language could
not be regarded as official or a publio
utterance in the sense that would war
rant the department in acting. How
ever, the navy department was fully
competent, to take "such action as the
oase seemed to require.
There are semi-official intimations
that the ambassador will not so much
concern himself with the course of
Coghlan as with the United States in
dealing with Coghlan.
- . Hay Expresses Disapproval.
Berlin, April 26. It is announoed
in a semi-official note today that
United States Secretary of State John
Hay has expressed to the German am
bassador his strong disapproval of the
conduct of Captain - Coghlan, of the
cruiser Raleigh.
FORTY-EIGHT NEW WARSHIPS.
Uncle Sam's Navy Growing at a Rapid
. Rate.
- . , . - . - ..
New York, April 26, A special to
the Tribune from Washington says:
The completion within a few -months
of two great battle-ships, the Kearsarge
and Kentucky, serves to call attention
to the remarkable rate at which the
American navy is growing at the pres
ent time. Except among naval offi
cers, who watch this progress, few per
sons realize that 48 warships are now
under construction for the United
States, involving expeditures under ex
isting contracts aggregating $33,336,-.
600 for hulls and maohinery alone.
These vessels, when equipped ready
tor sea, will have cost over $50,000,
000. . Eight of them are first-class sea
going battle-ships, as good as any
afloat, without taking into account the
superiority of the gunners, machinists
and officers to man them. Sixteen are
torpedo-boat destroyers, averaging 29
knots speed; four are heavy harbor
defense monitors; one is a sister cruis
er to the New Orleans; and 18 are tor-pedo-boats.
HAS AN AXE TO GRIND.
John Bull Will Not Abrogate Clayton.
Bulwer Treaty for Nothing.
New York, April 26. A special to
the Herald from Washington says: Al
though willing to abrogate the Clayton
Bulwer treaty, Great Britain has made
it plain to the United States that she
expects an equivalent in return for her
action. This equivalent will be exact
ed during the negotiations of the
American-Canadian commission, which
is to resume sessions in Washington in
August next. .
- It is because of a demand for con
cessions equal in value to that whioh
will be given to the United States in
the abrogation of the Clayton-Bulwer
treaty that the negotiations have not
progressed with the promptness at first
expected.-
It is apparent to the offloials now
that Great Britain proposes to use the
proposition to abrogate the treaty to"
further its own aims in connection
with the settlement of. the Alaskan
boundary and reciprocity questions.
Great Britain is determined to make
every effort to secure entry to the
Northwest Territory through Alaska,
and the United StateB is not willing to
give it to her. It may be, therefore.
that she will suggest that in return for
such an outlet she will surrender all
her rights in the Nioaraguan canal. '
President MoKinley and Seoretary v "
Hay have determined not to enter into
any negotiations with either Costa
Rica or Nicaragua respecting the Nic
aragua canal until the new isthmian -canal
commission has submitted its re
port. The Nicaiagua canal commission
will report within a short time, and
the president will then announce the '
personnel of the isthmian commission.
The new commission will then proceed
to Panama and later to Nicaragua, and '
it is the expectation of the president
that it will submit its report in time
for consideration early in the" next sea-,
sion of congress. . .
