by Dr. Brower as being equally ap

Dr. Church said:
"I was employed by State's Attorney

I made a report to Mr. Kern, telling
him that I considered the prisoner In

could not take the witness stand and

not consider Pendergast ineutially re

Memphis, Tenn., Dec. 20 A dis
patch to tbe Commercial from West
Plains, Mo., says: A horrible tragedy
was enacted thirty miles southwest of
this place, in Baxter couuty. Ark., last
night. As Hunter Wilson, a prominent
stockman, and bis wife were sitting by
the fireplace the room was entered by
unknown parties, who immediately
commenced firing at Wilson and his
wife. Both were bit and fell to the
floor. Wilson died ana bis wife was
badly wounded, but is still conscioss.
She managed to drag herself to a
neighbor's and gave tbe alarm and a
niessenger was immediately dispatched
to this place for assistance, there being
no sheriff in Baxter county. When be
left the scene, the messenger says, the
woman was only able to say a few
words, but she managed to tell what
occurred after the shooting. After
finishing their fiendish work, as they
supposed, tbe murderers, who seemed
to be acquainted with tbe house, went
to a trunk, took out over a thousand
dollars and made their escape.

The trouble was brought about by
the trouble which Mr. Datnrosch has
recently been having with the Musical
Protective union. They protested
against the importation of the famous
violoncellist, Anton Ileguer, who has
not been in this country a sufficiently
long time to become a member of the
union. On Friday night "Mr. Dam

Washington. Dec. 18. The British
anibasHn ior. Sir Julian 1'auneefote, is
keeping himself and his government
fully informed conceruint the tariff
developments. Only last w-ek copies
of the wav - and means committee's bill
were forwa ded to the British foreign
odicer at l-ondon. A representative
of the Ass.. . ited press, who called at
the British -mbassy. was asked by Hon.
Alan John.-'.jne, one of the tectretariea
oftheeml y, to submit the exact
questions i. wished to submit to the
ambassador m writing. Tbey were as
"Will the ambasBidor favor the Asso
ciate press with a brief expression, to
be used witn similar expression from
other embassies and legations, as to
the interest taken or a'tentiou given
to the revision of the tariff, as it con
templates broader and more ir:tim.te
commercial relations between the
United States and Great Britain or the
Rrltisli rntnr i'"
'1 his Mr. Johnstone submitted to the
ambassador and returned with the fol
lowing answer.
"The ambassador repr-s to inforn.
the Associated press in. lie deems it
inexpedient to express an opinion on
the inteni'il legislation of the United
Prince Cantacuzene, the Husian
minister talked most entertainingly
concerning the tariff question, as it re
lated to Rush! a, but he would make no
reference to the question as a phase of
American legislation. The minister
says that he regards the protective
policy as essential to tbe developing of
the industrial and manufacturing in
terests of tbe count-y and regards such
development .is outside the bounds of
entlment and abstract theory and one
of plain business calculations. This
statement, however, the minister re
stricted in its application to Kussia, a

Sen Don E. de Muruaga, the Span
ish : .ster, said the treaty conferred

United States. American flour was
admitted to Cuba at a much lower rate
of duty than before and this feature
ha-resulted in the shipment of thou
sands of barrels of A merican flour to
ceived a benefit in the remission of
duty on raw sugar. N'ow, however,
there are Indications that a duty may
be restored on raw sugar. As to
tobacco, also, the dimmer. ,al relations
aided by a reduction of the duties, but
the indications are that tobacco will be
one of the articles on which an increase
will be made.
At the residence of Baron A. Von
Saurma Jell h, the German ambassa
dor, the subject was discussed trom tbe
German standpoint by an official of
the embassy.
"Germauy would be glad to extend
her trade with this country," said be.
"At the present time tbe balance of
trade is stro..,'ly in favor of tbe United
States, as Germany buys very heavily
of your giain, pork and meats, which
this country makes no corresponding
purchase of the goods of Germany.
The McKinle. tariff further restricted
the commerce between the countries.

the drafts thus far submitted give
little evidence of materially changing
tbe present conditions, as they appeal
to cling to the policy of protecting
local industries against competition."

be learned as to the interest taken In
the tariff. It was said by one of tbe
official that no active interest In the
subject had been taken by the minis

Chicago, Dec 21. The democracy
of Chicago was victorious at the polls
Tuesday, when a mayor was selected
for the unexpired term of the late
Ca, er H. Harrison. The new mayor
is John P. Hopkins and his defeated
opponent is Gxotge B. wift, now
mayor ad Interim, who will resume his
duties as alderman. The campaign
was short and sharp and the cou'eat a
close one, as shown by the following
figures: Hopkins 112,16s, Swift 111,73;;
plurality for Hopkins, 1.2J0.
The total vote Klled was 227,307,
there being two other candidates in the
field. The election passed off quietly.
A democratic majority of 10.1MJ was
expected and the small difference be
tween the party votes indicates that
C hicago is not safely democratic at a
local election. The late mayor's great
ersonal popularity was responsible for
the large democratic majority given
him last spring.
John P. Hopkins is a young man and
'has been only thirteen j ears a resident
of Chicago. He was born In Buffalo
X. V., October 2'J, 1H5H, in the old
England ward, Cleveland and Biaell's
ward. He was educated in the schools
of Buffalo, but is not a collegiate. Like
. I
ins opponent ne is ciasseu as a oum- j
ness man. lie resides ai tveiifingiou,
near the southern limits of the city.
His first work in Buffalo was in a
foundry. Then he got employment in
F.van's elevators, w here he was soon
promoted t his first portion of re
sponsibility, that of weight-master,
which he held until lie removed to
Chicago in 1879. Here lie began bis
career shoving lumber in the yards at
Pullman. He advanced in the Pull
man company's service to store time
keeper, general tirrekeeper, and pay
master. Kobberi I be Uobbirn.

Chicago, Dec. 21. In the Pendei-
iiast trial yesterday the evidence heard
was mainly on ti e question of the
prisoner's sanity. Most of the wit
nesses examined testified to their be
lief that the murderer is perfectly sane.
There is not likely to be much more
evidence Introduced and the attorneys
are in hopes that the end of the case
may be reached by Saturday.
Attorney Wade who represents As
sassin preiidergast, made a startling
statement in court. The attorney is
thoroughly imbuded with the idea that
Prendergast is Insane, and he will fight
a verdict of hanging to the highest
courts. Said he: "1 will not consent
to any form of a verdict, and 1 am
prepared to state that the prisoner's
family will not object to a sentence for
life In the penitentiary or confinement
jn some institution for the insane for
tbe period of natural life. In fact I
will go so far in my argument to the
Jury as to suggest ttiat disposition of
Prendergaal's case. Hut the prisoner
must not hang. The jury can make
whatever form of verdict it choses,
aside from Infliction of the death pen
alty, and I will accept It."

for Scliaeffer, gave notice that he would
tppeal th case to the a. i pre me court,
where he hoped to get a reversal of
the case on tbe ground that tbe
court erred Ip refusing a change of
