Washington, March 2L The com
mittee on ways and means as a whole
will probably not get through with
the tariff bill before the latter part, or
the week. Tho Republican members
are still working on the bill and there
are several items yet over which there
is a good deal ot pulling and hauling
from the outside. They are giving
proper consideration to the various
petitions and protests that come to
their attention, which, of course,
involves much labor and takes
up time. They do not pro
pose to act hastily on any question
and when any good reasons for the
consideration of any matter, are given
they have passed "upon, the matter
is carefully weighed. They hope to
get the bill through lhe whole
committee and into the house by
about the first proximo. When the
measure finally gets to the house it is
not proposed to waste time in tho de
bate but to go as soon as ixssible into
consideration under the minute rule.

McConkey, the murderer was badly de

the same. Added to this his discov

him almost frantic. Last night he

latter arrived about 7 o'clock
for breakfast and then started
towards Mrs. McConkey's study.

killing Gresham. McConkey then
placed the rifle against his left breast
and leaning over pulled the trigger,
the bullet passing through his heart
and entering the ceiling above. Let
