"Resolved , That competition exists from

"Resolved , That the lines interested In tbo

ti "Tho committee appointed by the north
western division of ttio Western Freight as
sociation failed to accomplish the desired re
suit , the eastern lines objecting to pro
rating or printing through tariffs that would
not cover Intermediate territory.o then
guvo notice of the so-called proportional
tariff , which. was prepared In nucordanco
with the form used by this association at the
meeting of September ! 1 , and u resolution
was submitted which instructed the chair
man to publish the through rates from east
ern-points to St. Paul und Minneapolis. This
was voted down by a largo majority , ul >
though It was in line with the resolution
passed by the presidents.
"Jt was shown that nil lines voting against

tnrift now in effect. It was also shown that nil
the lines wcro party to the proportional tariff
which went into effect September 8. 'The
resolution was offered to cancel the proportional
tional tariff of September 3 , which was voted
down. I bollovo wo have in u tie. all our prop
ositions conform to the Instructions of ttio
presidents about confining rates proposed to

association has disagreed with us.Vo take
It for granted that there is no objection to
our making the -nine through rates

In effect by the Canadian nnd lake lines , prr.
vldcd bur tariffs are iu conformity to the law

"Wo supposed wo would bo safe In follow
ing the resolutions of the president , but wo
were evidently mistaken , und now , in order
to have our action conform to the Ideas of a
majority of the members of the association ,
wo Imvu asked the eastern lines to print
-through tariffs from all their stations to all
of our stations , the rates from Now York
and Boston to St. Paul , Minneapolis and the
Minnesota transfer to bo on the following
basis : All rail , 85 , Til , 69,4:1 : , 37 and 31.

Uatcs via differential lines to bo the differ
ential less than the above figures.
"To make the above through rates from
'tho east ana not apply higher rates at Inter
mediate points , will necessitate a reduction
from Chicago locally. Herewith I hand you
a copy of the tariff which will take effect
September IB , nnd will furnish through
tariffs as soon us they uro received from
eastern lines. This notion is taken Under
the special agreement of the association ,
which provides for llvo days notice. "
Tbo accompanying tariff cancels all con

The rates nro : 40 , 35 , 23 , 17 , 1'JW.
In other woras , the cuts arq 33 per cent on
local rates und TB percent on through rates.
The notice was a complete surprise to every
member of the association. To these con
versant with the situation it was known to

reduction was anticipated.
The association adjourned until to-morrow

Deyhlo has been accustomed to call upon
Gessweln frequently at his store on John

discontinued his visits. Nothing bus been
seen of him for the past six months until this
morning , when ho walked into Gesswoin's
sloro and Inquired for the proprietor. He
was shown into Gcsswein's private offlco on
the second floor. They were alone with the
door closed. No ono knows exactly what
occurred. Charles Koester , one of thoclerka ,
has his desk right next to the thin board par

rather long and grizzled beard , ns uncouth
as his hair , which is nearly white. When
asked why ho killed Gesswein ho said :
"Ho has ruined mo. I invented and had
patented a reflector for jewelers , made sam
ples myself nnd sold them to Gnsswoin at $1
apiece. I lived pretty well on that for a
time , but ho soon copied my reflectors and I
was unable to get alongso I sued him iu the
United Slates court before Judge Brown ,
who decided ngaindt me. Then I decided to
leave Philadelphia , whore I was living with
two of my sisters , and come to Now York
and speak myself to that man. I had no
money to go into business again , no money
to enter the homo for uucd people at Phila
delphia , and I could not remain a burden to
my sisters. When Gesswein refused posi
tively my request for $500. 1 drew n revolver
and fired at him without leaving the chair I
was occupying at his loft side. "
Gesswein was foi'ty-oiio years of ago. His

Politicians nnd gosslpcrs quit talking to

discussion of his probable successor.
Major Warner , of Kaunas City , Into com-
mnnder-in-chlof of Iho G. A. It , was In con
sultation with Secretary Noble some tlmo
thin afternoon. He was undoubtedly called
liero for consultation on the commissioner-
ship. . Major Warner is u good lawyer , well
posted on veteran tilTajrs and is Intensely
popular. His advice at this tlmo is very
valuable. Representative Wnro , oC Mis
souri , who Is nn Intimate per
sonal friend of Major Warner , nay *
the latter would accept the commissioner *
ship , nnd that It Is very probable ho will bo
appointed. That is the general bullet bore.
Ills appointment. It Is universally conceded ,
would bo n wise one. Tlio only objection , so
fur as can be learned , is that with him Mis
souri would huvo the commissioner of pen
sions the secretary of the Interior , tt.o dep
uty commissioner of pensions , and the us-
slstant attorney general , qullo n liberal
nllowunco ofofUccrs for a strong stale.

When It wns announced that President

General George L. Merrill , of Boston , had
a talk with the president during the after
noon , and it was stuted tie would bo consid

dor-ln-chiof of tlio O. A. H.
There were G. A. R. men about the white
house all day , nnd it is evident that the or
ganization will have a good deal to say on the-
jubjoctof the corporal's successor.
A demand Is being made by some of Mr.

the correspondence which passed botweea
the secretary of the Interior nnd the commis
sioner of pensions bo published , with an outline -
line of the report of the committee that in-

not believe that it would add anything to jus

the immediate appointment of Mr. Johnson ,
of Nuckolls county , who Is recommended by
