The bill, and the report cf the joint
committee to ascertain the money on

and whether they can be paid quarterly
have resulted in a coi fl ct ot fl.ures,
which is not understood, and the resuit

in Ge <rgia has any idea that there is one

be clearly understood, for certainly the i
gentlemen who have sung st d the reso- I

think that the law regulating deposito

A Point of Personal Privilege.
The senate had a little sens*'too when
Senators Hatcher and Chambers arose
Ibis morning to a question of personal
privilege. The- Cobsiitu'ion of today
Contained »n interview wi'h Hon. W. M.
Fleming wh ch raised the direct question
of fact aa to the t ruth of the report of
that joint committee wSich siid that
there was sufficient money in the treas
ury to pay ihe teachers and widows and
Soldiers quar'erly without any further
1-sislation. That report seamed astound
ing, and naturally resulted in a great
de >1 of inquiry. Mr. F emiog felt with
theoth-ire, and his interview showed
that he was tight.
Se atorCuambers and Senator Hatcher
Were on thia j nut committee and they
did nos at all relish the cri'icism oast on
thec.immittee, and noth said they were
unwilling to let it pais unnoticed. They
r forced to Mr. F eming’astar,em>mtcon-
Oiruin ' th-ir report and sid that if the
report is fa'se the treasurer is reap >nsi

icised the treasurer for failing to make a

More Financial Legislation.
Fo’owing tma came the tesolufion

little i ■ suasion, unanimously ad- p ed.

port showing a larwe sum of money in
the s a'e treasury; that -at the present
session a j ant committee was appointed
to ascertain wt>>t deficiency, if any it was
to pay -be public school teachers quar
tery and that the said comm-ttee had re
ported that the treasmer bad informed
them ihat there were ample funds io the
treasury to p<y the teachers quarterly if
the soldi rs and widows were also paid
quarterly; and it goes < n to svy,
Whereas, It appears fbom the books in
the executive < ffice that the pensions for

treasury ; and
Whereas, A j nnt resolution has been
introduced into the s-nate reciting that
deposits have been made in c-rtain sta'e
depositories, largely in excess of the
amount tequiied of such depositories;
Whereas, The treasurer bas failed to
make a report to this session of the gen
eral assembly tbs condition of the treas

It is therefore resolved that a joint
committee of three from the senate and
five from the house be appointed to re
port as early as prac'icable the tiue con
dition of the trea-ury, the am iuut of
money in the various depositories, when
such money was paid into the treasury,

Washington, Nov. 23.—The demo
cratic members of the ways and means
committee have abandoned the small
room in which they began their work on
the tariff bill and moved upstairs to the
committee’s own commodious quarters.
A messenger at the door ■ lenies adiniss
ion to every caller. Speaker Crisp him
self, if he were in town, would not be
able to enter the room without first send
ing in his card.
The progress made indicates that the
committee will be able to report the bill
by the time fixed. It is rumored, how
ever, that some members of the commit
tee think that a day or two ought to be
given to the republican, members of the
committee for the discussion of the meas
ure in the confidence of the conimittee
room before publication is made. This :
point will be settled later.
Mr. Cockran’s opposition to an income
tax will avail nothing, so far as his Dem
ocratic colleagues on the committee are
concerned. The has with him only Wil
son of West Virginia, and Stevens of
Massachusetts. His only hope therefore
lies in a combination With tne Republi
cans, all of whom, of course, oppose an

The iroijile men have been informally
notified by members of the ways and

decided by the Democratic members that
iron ore would be placed on the free list.
This is the most important develop
anent of the day, as it leaves the iron
men of Alabama, Virginia and Michigan
no alternative but fb carry Their fight to
the floor of the house. This they are
threatening to do. but it is more freely
stated than ever that the new tariff bill
containing this new provision will be op
posed in tlie~hou.se by the solid Demo

the senate by Senators Morgan and

t.o:i. through President George 11. Fly,
of Ohio, has made a vigorous protest to

The Wool Schedule Arranged.
The committee has concluded the wool
schedule of the new tariff bill. The
measure provides for the admission free
of duty of all wools and hair of the cam
el, goat, alpaca and other like animals,
and ot wool and hair on the skin, top
waste and other wastes and rags com
posed wholly or in parr of wool, and also
repeals what are known asuonipensatory
duties on woolen goods and reduces- -the
ad valorem duties on such goods.
It also repeals the compensatory duties
upon carpets of all kinds, rugs and mats
and reduces the ad valorem duties there
on from 40 per cent ad valorem to 30 per
cent an valorem.
It also reduces the duties upon certain
qualities of waste, which have been ad
vanced beyond the condition of scoured
wool by the use of machinery or by the
application of labor to 25 per cent ad
valorem. The duty on shoddy, inungo
and certain other wastes is put at 25 per
cent ad valorem.

Galveston, Nov. 28.—John R. Jolip-;.,.
ston, alias John Comer, who walked ImBE
the headquarters of the chief of police? "
seeking protection from parties, who, he
claimed, were trying to “gong” him,
later made a full confession of having
killed Jim Wall at a country dance,
four miles south of Dawson, Ga., in
1889. The killing occurred at a country
ball, which Johnston attended with a
[ vouue ladv. While she was dancing ehe (
was rudely tripped up and thro Ahl to tne
floor by a younger brother of Jim Wall. !
Johnston resented the indignity to the
I young lady and was invited out by
young Wall, who said he would give any
satisfaction he desired. When they got
into the yard, friends surrounded them,
and the matter was amicably adjusted.
Shortly after this Jim Wall appeared
at the dance and his brother told him
What had happened. Jim said Johnston
would have to retract or he would kill
him, and at once went in search of John
ston, whom he met coming in the gate
with a party of friends. Jim Wall ap
proached Johnston in a threatening man
ner and demanded an apology for the
affront he had placed upon his brother.
Johnston replied that the matter had
been amicably settled and that no apolo
gy was necessary. Jim said he would
have to apologize or he would kill him.
Johnston refused. Jim Wall threw his
hand down on his revolver in his hip
pocket. As he was in the act of draw
ing the weapon Johnston whipped out
his revolver and shot Jim through the
heart, killing him instantly. -.
Johnson says the killing was witnessed
by about 15 people, among whom was a

The Bride of Three Weeks Discover* Her
Husband Is a Crook.
St. Louis, Nov. 23.—A sensation was
caused here by the news that Frank M.
Hardenbrook had been arrested in New
York for some act in connecion with
Benjamin G. Sandford’s robbery of the
Continental National bank. Harden
brook was married here three weeks ago
to Annie Melton, daughter of A. B. Mel-
Ton, and the wedding was a swell affair,
was called Judge Hardenbrook, and
it was announced that he had met Mis-
Melton while she was visiting her uncle,
a millionaire, of the name of Dameron,
in San Francisco.
The meeting, courtship and wedding
all made up an interesting romance. In
connection with the elaborate accounts
of the wedding printed here, the hint
was giqen that the bride was to be the
heiress of her wealthy uncle, and at the
same time an intimation was given that
the bridegroom was very wealthy.
The marriage was apparently not only
the culmination of a romance, bijt the
joining of two wealthy and aristocratic
families. This news from New York,
which somehow or other has just reach
ed here, has given St. Louis society
something to talk about. •
