WASHIKHTOX , March IS. [ Special Tele
gram.J Thercsccms to boiiultc a rent In the
deadlock between the senate and the presi
dent. The breakage Is caused by a graceful
backdown by the administration , through
Secretary Manning , lo thu finance commit
tee of the senate. Some ilava ago that com
mittee addiesscd a note to Iho secretary of
the treasury In regard toceitaln nominations
for Internal revenue collectors. A day after ,
a letter came In answer from Manning , re
peating that the president still stood by his
lefusal to furnish papers , but thai the secre
tary could in f01 m the committee that the
business of thu collectors of Internal revenue
was behig badly confused by the senate's
action In ' 'holding up" so many nominations
for those places. Then he launched out Into
a long levluw of certain cases , and said that
the conduct of thu men who had held these
offices was extremely good ; their affairs had
been conducted In a most exemphuy
manner ; that the morals of thu
appointees weio excellent. Ho dwelt upon
the duties of both ofllcial.s and ( he senate In
this regard , and said that there were no pa
pers on file relating to the ofllcer they de
sired to know of. Ho concluded his long
epistle by saying "that th.s president thought
It for the best Intciests of his administration
to have In these olllces men of the same polit
ical complexion as himself. "
The letter created finite a flutter In Ihe
committee , for It was a vlitnal example of
"Wlillo rofuslmrto coii'ont , consented. "
Yet they did not deem It of sulllclcnt an
swer to their rcifucst. A resolution was
offered to return the letter to Mr. Manning ,
with Instructions that the committee did not
desire a stump speech on Ihe subject but the
facts. A vote was taken on this motion , and
to the surprise of many of the committee
several of the democrats voted to icturn the
letter , among them Heck. It was
carried and the letter returned.
At the next meeting of the committee
another letter was found from Manning ,
which was a short one. In fact only the sali
ent points. Itcfcrcnco to the good conduct
nnd condition of the affairs , the moral char
acter of the appoluteo and Iho desire of Iho
president to have persons of Ids party In of
fice all the stnmn speech was omitted. The
republicans had gained their point. The
reasons were given , and hence they have al
ready reported favorably on some Internal
revenue collections , and at the meeting to
day others were considered and reported on
in executive session and continued. The
reason Heck voted to return tbo letter was be
cause ho was anxious to have his Kentucky
men reported on. The action of the secretary
of the treasury may be followed soon by the
others. If so , thu rent In the dead lock will
grow , and it seems now as If the speeches
wcio not failures cither.

HcprcscntatUo Halm's Death Com-
pllotuo.sMatters Herlously ,
WASIIINUTOS , Maich IS. ( Special. ) Tlio
death of ex-Uovernor Halm so suddenly las
Monday morning has complicated the con
tested election eases to a considerable exten1
and It Is likely to result In the defeat of the
republicans In each Instance. The committee
on elections In the house , ofhlch G'ovcinor
Halm was a member , now consists of nine
democrats and four republicans. .There are
four contests before the committee ; In tkieo
case * democratic contestoVs are trying to uu
Miat republicans ; in the other a republican Is
trying for the seat now occupied by a grcon
back-democrat. In .tho latter ( Campbel
n-'alnst Weaver of Iowa ) Ihc contestant , cer
tainly has a very strong case , and Utheio
Jiad betn uo change In tbo cwuuiltttc Weaver
vould , In all probability , have been un
sealed. The prospecls now Arc that lie will
retain his scat during this congress. It Islet
lot so certain , however , that Mr. Iloincls , the
slltlnc member from Toledo , Ohio , will re-
naln. The eminent free-trader , i Frank
ilurd , wants the scat. Ho said , just before
ho session began , that If he could not obtain
ho seat that ho claimed Inside of sixty days
10 would withdraw from the contest. Hems
ms not yet withdrawn , on the contrary he Is
fighting hard for the seat nnd means to get It
fit takes until the 1st of March , 1887. Thcro
s something radically wrong in the manner
> f conducting election contests In the house.
It Is a disgrace that years must pass before It
can bo known who Is elected to a congress.

The senate passed the bill to remove the
barge of desertion from the rccoids of the
adjutant-general of the army against soldiers
who re-enlisted In Iho latu war without hav
ing lecelvcd a discharge from their first regi
ments ; providing , the seeietary of war shall
be satl.shi'd that thu le-cnlKtmunr was not to

Mr. Logan called up his bill "To Increase
Hie efficiency of the army. " It was amended
and ordered lepiintcd.
At2 o'clock the nnlinlshed business was
lilacul before tlio senate , being the icsoltt-
Lions reported by Mr. Kdmunds from the ju
diciary committee expressing the senate's
condemnation of the attornoy-trenaral for re
fusing to furnish papers called for by the
Mr. Van Wyek offered as an amendment In
tlio resolution the following : "And in all
such cases removal the mailer ot continua
tion shall be considered In open session of
tlm senate. "
Mr. Sewell , occupying the chair , remarked :
The amendment will bo printed and Uo
Mr. Drown then took the lloor In opposition
to the report of the majority of the commit
tee. He said It seemed to him that there was
but a single question nt issue between the
president and the majority of the senate.
That question was : Had the president , with
out the advice and consent of tlio senate , the
power to remove a federal officer , if in his
opinion public Interest required such re
moval ? Mr. Drown argued at length to siiow
that the constitution conferred tbo power of
removal on the president alone , and that as
the constitution was the supreme law , that
settled the question , no matter how many acts
of congress might have been passed In viola
tion of it.
Mr. Spooner took the lloor in support of
the majority report. He said he would make
no attcmpllo disguise the fact , or eulogize
for it , that the fortunes of the republican
parly wen ; very dear to him. Ho would not
attempt to deny that ho wished that that pnity
might here and elsewhcio reap every fail-
party advantage which might bo taken from
thu blunders and shoitcomings , if any such
there were , of this administration. Mr.
Spoonor read from the president's message
tlio clause Inviting the senate to "tho fullest
scrutiny" of nominations submitted. Did
this. Mr. Spooner asked , mean that ho was
willing to give the senate ) all the informa
tion in his possession ? Or did it mean that
he should make a paitlal presentation ? Mr.
Spooner then look up the question from a
legal point of view , and quoted from the con
stitution and tenure of offlco act to show that
the powerof lemoval as well as appointment
was In the president and senate aeling to
gether , and that , what was In his solo discre
tion absolute was Iho power of suspension
during the recess of the senate.

Dr.s Motxr.s , Iowa , March 18. [ Special
Telegram. ] A shocking and mysterious
tratredy occurred here to-day , which is
ballllng the Ingenuity of the police. Ahouso
of questionable character on Cherry street
was broken Into about 1 o'clock this after
noon , and ono young woman , who answers
to the name of Jessie Caller , was found
dying on the bed with two bullet holes
through her body. In the same room was n
companion who answers to the name of May
1'niher , pale and nearly speechless with
fright and excitement.
The only clue to this affair Is the statement
of a young man named J. II. Maxtor , who
belongs In this city. It appears that lie lias
been paying some attentions to bolh , partic
ularly to May , but within a few days ho had
transferred his Interest moro especially to
Jessie. It seems thai to-day he had ai ranged
tostait with the latter to Sioux City and
called at tlio house for her about 11 o'clock.
The cmtalns were drawn and no ono re
sponded , lie called two or three times again ,
and began to suspect something
wrong , so at 1 o'clock went
again and broke open the house , finding
things as reported. Tlio police were sum
moned and after hearing the story from all
parties , arrested the girl May and lodged her
In jail. Her explanation of tlio probable
murder Is that about 9 o'clock this morning ,
while both girls were In Iho room , some ono
lired through the window , shooting the girl
Jessie , but although this occurred early in
the day she made no effort to leave the house ,
but remained locked in till discovered at 1
o'clock. An examination of the wounds
shotted that they were probably made by a
! 52-calIbrobaII , and a 82-callbro revolver was
found In the house with three chambers
It Is the theory of the police that the
woman arrested shot the other this morning
through jealousy , and then was too much
frightened to escape. The dying woman can
not live through the night , her physician
says. The dying woman made an ante-mor-
tcm statement that the woman May shot at
her twice this morning , after threatening to
kill her , and was Intending to throw her
down a trap door Inlo Iho ccller , when her
In the house to-day a bill was Introduced
to abolish Ihc boaul of capltol commission
ers. The committee on railroads reported
favorably on the bill denning the duties of
the railroad commissioners and giving them
power to fix maximum rates. The bill relat
ing to the election and compensation of dis
trict judges , already discussed , was then
taken up. The special feature considered
was the Ilxlnt ; of the salary. This had been
amended , changing the sum fixed by the
bill from 53,0 0 to Sa.noo , Aflcr debate this
section was so amended and adopted yeas
4:3 : , noes 30. As there was much dilferenco of
opinion as to the provisions of the bill relat
ing to changing the judicial districts , further
consideration was postponed.
The KIlcv bill , determining the number of
grand and trial juries , was passed by tbo
liouso to-day , under suspension of Iho rules
with no dissenting voles. It is similar to the
.Miles senate bill , and reduces the number of
grand jurors to live in counties of less than
10,000 population , and seven in counties hav
ing more than that. The house also ordered
engrossed the Itoach bill , providing that
when any railroad employs Is Injured in the
discharge of duty and sues for damages , the
burden of proof of conlrlbulory negligence
on his part must bo shown by the defendants.
The liouso also passed a concurrent resolu
tion instructing the soldiers' homo committee
to visit and examine Dubtujuo ns a location
for a soldiers' homo. The liouso decided to
begin morning sessions at 9 a. m. on and
after March 2:1. :
In the senate the committee on Iho agricul

NKW YORK , March 18. Alderman llonrg
W. Jaclino was arrested at the city hat I at
noon to-day , charged with bribery. This ar
rest Is duo to the testimony produced against
Jnuhno before the Broadway Investigation
commlttcG on the 12th of the month. Testi
mony was introduced to show that stolen
silverware was traced to .laelino's shop ,
where It had been bonglil and molted ; that
Jaclino tried to bribe one of the detectives
sunt to recover the property , and falling In
this , paid the value of the silver , SIilOD.
.Upon Jaehnc's arrival at the city hall ho
was taken Into ono of tlio private rooms.
' The indictment against Alderman .laehne
has been found but not filed , " said District
Attorney Marline this afternoon , "and It Is
charged against him that ho iccelved a bribe ,
In consideration of which ho voted lor the
granting of the franchise to build a road on
Uroadway to this Droadway Surface company
after the resolution had been vetoed by the
mayor. The warrant for Jachne's arrest waa
Issued by Judge Ollderslcovo of the court of
general sessions upon allladvlls furnished
mo by Inspector Byron , The alderman will
bo arraigned before Judgu Glhtcrsleovo In n
few minutes. "
As soon as It became known on tlio street
thatJaehnc had been arrested for participa
tion In the llroadway railway steal , politi
cians and aldermen by the dozen Hocked to
the city hall and Marline's olllco. Among
those who were allowed to see Jachno were
Aldermen Delacy , Flnlgan and Maslerson.
Lawyers Peter Mitchell and Itlchard New-
combo hastened to the district attorney's
office as soon as they heard of the arrest and
hold n consultation with Jachnc. District
Attorney Marline , under the direction of
Judge Gildorslcevc , ordered papers for bail-to
bo drawn , fixing the amount at § 15,000. Joe
Donalld was accepted as bondsman. While
tlio papers were being drawn tin Jaehno sat
smoking a cigar In the private olllco. lie
did not appear to feel very bad over Ills arrest
and seemed to take It as a matter of course.
He said ho did not want to talk about his ar
rest to reporters.
The court room was crowded when the
alderman appeared and gave bail. Hearing
was lixed tor Monday afternoon. Tim arrest
created a sensation , but this feeling gave way
to ono of astonishment when it became
known later on Ihat.Jaehne'stconfidenco had
been played upon by Inspector 13ynu's , and
that ho had furnished that wily ofllcer of the
law complete details of the corruption in the
Broadway railway franchise matter , not only
so far as ho himself was concerned ; but also
a's to other members of the board of alder
men who Bold themselves. Inspector Byrnes
told his story of the steps that led up to the
arrest after the alderman had been com
mitted. It was n most extraordinary story ,
though-much moro was loft unsaid than was
told ; bjthe chief of ttcKyilyus.Inspector' '
* Byrmsj5ossc.sse8 tlio rare gifrof' oeing able
to'MrnrmJliiinsclt Into people's confidence ,
'making them .talk to n very useful degree.
Jaehno was no exception. In thocourso of ten
months Intimacy with the Inspector ,
whom lie knew all the tlmo as
Iho chief of the detective force , he
unbosomed himself by degrees , and dually
told him unreservedly , in confidence , of
course , all about the big steal. When nothing
more remained to bo told , Inspector Byrnes
dropped the mask of a confidential friend ,
and assuming the character of an ollicial , had
the alderman locked up. having previously
scon to it that the alderman's "confidence"
had unseen witnesses , who could make oath
to what he had said.
"Less than a year ago , " said the Inspector ,
"ten or eleven months , perhaps , the district
attorney sent for mo and asked if 1 could not
in some way help to get at the facts about the
alleged railroad steals , and probe the truth of
the rumors that were Hying around. It was
not an easy matter , but I told him I would
try. 1 picked out Alderman .Jachno for the
sunjcct , and contrived to meet him accident
ally , as It were , now and then , and
mostly down town. When I did I
managed in some way to bring up
the franchise troubles , until .Jaehno
trot used to liearinir mo talk about thorn.
Gradually ho began to talk too. 1 got some
Information at every ono of these meetings ,
which , though disjointed and loose , led up
suic'ly lo the conviction that 11101103' had been
paid Ii I in and others 1'or their votes on these
railroad franchises. This information I im
parted to the district attorney from tlmo to
tlmo and a further line of inquiry was laid
out."Things were narrowing down to business ,
and when 1 found District Attorney .Marline-
and Judiro ( illdersleovo at the Manhattan
club last Sunday night , I talked the situation
over with them. They thought it quite prob
able that conviction lor bribery could bo had
with the evidence already in hand to
work upon , but advised mo to
have Jaclino make the statements
where they could bo corroborated.
To that cud 1 sent for Jaclino on Tuesday ,
Inviting him to a confidential chat at head
quarters , lie came but wo were-disturbed
and couldn't talk in pi-ace. So we appointed
Wednesday night at my liouso for meeting ,
and Alderman Jaehne went away. Ho came
on Wednesday and In the course of an In
terview , lasting for hours , ho told mo all
about his share in the Broadway railroad
steal. I had two ol my men ported where
they could hear everything that was said
without being seen. Jar-lino wild that ho got

the following particulars of thoclruuinstanccs
lending to the tmgedy enacted nt Carrollton ,
Miss. , yesterday : Some months ago Hobcrt
Moore , n young man from Lelloro county ,

made $ omo allusions to his treatment oC
Moore. Brown gave him Impudence and
Llddoll started at him , but was
prevented by by-slanders from attacking
him. The negro then went and armed him
self and Induced the others to do likewise.
They stationed themselves on the streel ,
some concealing themselves behind trees.
When Llddoll came alter supper from tlio
hotel , ho saw them and asked them whaC
they meant , whereupon Kd Brown responded
it was none of Ids daninod business. At
that , Llddell struck at Kd Brown with his
list , and Kd and Charles Brown , his brother ,
both simultaneously tired upon Lddell ! _ , pjiu

About this tlmo some tlftoim to twenty snots

them with intent to murder In the previous
difficulty. Previous to the opening of the
trial yesterday Brown boasted on the street
that ho had his body-guard and would shoot
the llrst man who made a move In his direc

the court house immediately was tilled with
negroes , who stationed themsu'lves mound
and about the Brown brothers. Tlio ntlor-
noys were proceeding with the case , when
there suddenly appeared about 100 white men ,
all well armed. Pciccivlng their entrance ,

The judges' bench Is on the north side of the
room and the benches facing It are towards
the south. It Is n very largo court room , with
windows all around. On the south wall
were counted ir : : shot holes , and in the
benches thirty shot holes. Ono shot struck
the northeast'window sash and glanced into-
tlio wall , i'iveother shots show on the north
wall from the direction ot the benches.
Largo pools of blood were on the lloor ot the
court room. The mob then Ie.lt as quickly

As ho was getting out three shots were lired
at him , two of which struck the window sill

AH Is quiet now. The urincinal leaders of
