A wild rush was made by the fa-dory

iveru found several pleeen of cast Iron.
Dlher pieces, corresponding to these,
n ere found in the olllce. They wem
nrefnlly placed together and. although
all the pieces weie not found, thrro
ivrrc enough of them to show that thu
bomb, or machine, that exploded was
t piece of cast iron pipe, about six
Indies in length by one and one-hitlf
Inches in diameter. Fastened to cither
Mid of litis piece of pipe was a cap,
iliitli was s'rewed on. The odor and
imoke indicated that the explosive iw
ithe.r ilymtmite or giant powder.
No far no motive has been disclosed
for the murder. Information of a
iturlliug diameter was received by the
poiice. which may aid in the solution
it the mystery.
It war.' to tliu effect that thu bomb
mm intended for John F. Andrus,
brother of the dead man, a several
times millionaire. John I". Andrus did
not appear at the olllee of the('heiuli-al
foinpany, ns was his custom. On learn
ing of the explosion and the death of
Ids brother ho hurried to the police

tain Manila. To the captain he said
that the explosion of thu bomb might
have been the work of anarchists, anil
dVcrcd an explanation for his belief.
About three weeks ugo, he Mild, he
was wnlkiug along Wall street. New

rather Feedy looking individual, who
look him by the arm and r.aid: ".Mr.

A shooting affray in wbiuh Clarence
Tingley lost his life occurred on I'dui
island, a few miles southwest of Mud
ton Monday evening. Tingley and a
farm hand ln the employ of John
Hutchinson sometime since hail trouble
over a wager and Monday they met on
the ro.nl and engaged in an altercation
over the matter. Tingley. it is re
ported, got out of his wagon and in
ited the other man to u combat,
which invitation was promptly ac
cepted. Hutchinson, who was with
his lilted man. iiImi got out of the
wagon, and when he saw Tingley was
getting the best of the light interfered.
I "pon Ills interference Tinglo.v started
for Hutchinson, who took -i shotgun
from his wagon and ordered Tingley
to stop. The latter, how ever, con
tinued to advance in a threatening
manner and Hutchinson shot him in
the light side, the charge lodging i.t
the kiduc.is Tingley fell to the
ground and expired in about fort,-llo
minutes, tetaiiilng consciousness totlui
hist. As soon as Tingley was dead
Hutchinson s'arleil for Kearney and
upon arriving there gave himself up to
Tlie coroner and slierifl went to the
scene nf the trngedv. arriving about
midnight. A jury was impanelled and
an inquest held, the evidence of two
or three witne-es to the shooting
eliding facts ns stated above. Hutch
inson claims the shooting was in self
ilel'Misc. Tingley is a young man
eighteen years of age. He is a farm
laborer and has an unenviable reputa
tion, lie has several times been at
rested for theft and was generally con
sidered iuirrclwiiin and dangerous.
Hutchinson is uhout forty ami married.
Those who were acquainted with him
say that he bears a good reputation
and was never known to be quarrel
some, except when he was drinking,
but lie had not indulged in drink for
a .ear nr two. There is a report that
Hutchinson and Tingley had some
trouble some time since and that
Hutchinson threatened to shoot Ting
ley and some of the latter' .s friends
ere inclined to think lie took advan
tage of this opportunity to put the
threat into execution.

Mr. ( lisp was chosen Speaker of the

the Speaker, had quieted down, and

Wasiiim.io.n'. Oct. L'l. Tho second
attempt of the War department to ob
tain steel l'orgings for suia'l Held gum
at what is regarded as n reasonable
price has. failed signally, owing to the
refusal of the steei lirms to reduce tlie
bids fuiiii what were believed to be ex
orbitant figures. At the llr.st bidding
the prices asked ranged from L'sj to
.'it' j cents per pound anil u it-advertise
iiteut was ordered. Tho second bills
have been opened and are precisely the
same as the llrst.
The otllcials do not st-c how they can
consent to pay juices asked by the'steel
companies forMinil! forgings, Congress
having tied tlie maximum at twenty
four een .. per pound. The question
awaits the decision of Secretary la
inonl upon his return to Washington
and it may be Unit in deference to the
expressed opinion of Congress as to the
proper price of gun steel, he will feel
obliged to refer the subject to that
hotly when it again assembles, lu
view of the fact that tlie general law
required the steel to be of domestic
iiianufacture. the war department iu
the end, it is believed, must accept the
terms ottered by the tv.o American
