22D YEAR NO. 6,764.
WASHINGTON, D. O., FIUDAY EVENING, APRIL 4, 1890.
PRICE TWO CENTS.
SOLD ONLY BY
aiii! snooTiNG or MKS. BURNETT
Supposed to navo Keen Dono by nor
Alleged Insane Son,
Mrs. Burnett, who was shot through
tlio neck on Tuesday at her home, 815
Hew Jersey avenue, is still at tho Provi
dence Hospital, and tho doctors say she
is in a fair way "to recovery. There
seems to he no doubt now that the
shooting, was dono by her de
mented son, Cornelius Burnett. His
mind has boon weak for years,
and those who havo lived in
tho neighborhood of his houso have
been fearful that ho would commit
some crime, llo at one time was
caught in tho act of chasing his mother
around the house with a carving knlfo,
and tho neighbors say that at tho time
of tho shooting sho had a black eye as
a result of an attack on tho part of the
Ijoy. Tho inclination of tho family to
throw tho crimo on the colored man,
James Harrison, cannot bo accounted
for, unless it is to shield the son.
Cornelius Burnett was brought from
tho Sixth Precinct to tho Polico Court
this afternoon by Ofllccr William Riley.
Thero is no question as to his insanity.
His actions in tho dock demonstrated
very conclusively to tho Judgo that ho
was Insane, and ho ordered him re
manded to jail and set tho caso for a
hearing on nest Tuesday.
Tho Treasury Department to-day rcn

Fccictary Tracy has decided to ac

Majesty May Ray.
London, April 4. Almost concur
rently with tho decision of tho now
German Chancollor, Count Von Cap
rlvl, to abandon tho practice of furnish
ing official Inspiration to tho utterances
of certain journals nnd to placo all
respectable newspapers on tho samo
footing In regard to tho publication of
political information, comes tho an
nouncement that Prince Bismarck
has consented to publicly ox
press his opinions on political
and other Important questions
at frequent Intervals through tho press.
As the cx-Chanccllor was tho chief ex
ponent of inspired journalism in Ger
many during his official career, himself
furnishing nil of tho inspiration that
was of interest to tho world, It would
seem that Count Von Caprlvl's decision
is likely to havo little, or no Influence in
shaping a new departure.
On tho contrary, it may bo safely as
sumed that what Prlnco Bismarck may
write over his own signature will bo
moro eagerly and widely read than nuy
thing that has ever appeared unsigned
in an inspired newspaper presumably at
his behest. How little tho Kaiser and
his chief lieutenant will enjoy
tho experience of having a well
spring of state, wisdom nnd all
pervading criticism, comment and
counsel apart from tho authorize! gov
ernmental source may bo imaglncdrbut
how thoy aro to provent Its flow it is
difficult to sco. In any event It Is qulto
plain that Bismarck, cx-Chanccllor, is
destined to become a moro grievous
thorn in the side of tho young Kaiser
than was Bismarck, Chancellor, when
he essayed to curb tho growing self
will and finally tho headstrong reckless
ness of his master.
Further dispatches from St. Peters

not of a serious nature physically, but
Is rather tho result of a protracted
stale of mental pcrtubatlon, aggravated
by tho attempts which aro known to

being made daily, and evidence Is said
to bo accumulating warranting tho im
prisonment of n number of officers
closely connected with tho Imperial

pecially of a political character, but
owing'to the concurrent prevalence of

THE PAN-AMERICAN CONGRESS TO
HELP THE REPUBLICANS.
President Harrison Will llcrommonil
Trcnty or Rerlproclty with South
Ainerlcnu Cuuntrlos, and Thus
Help Pass tho Tariff Hill.
The publication of tho scheme for
developing reciprocity with South
American countries ns a result of tho
Pan-American Congress, which has
been in session in Washington during
tho past winter, has precipitated tho
revelation of n plan which is now being'
talked of In the Houso and Senate, by
which tho Pan-American Congress Is to
eoIvc one of tho chief difficulties of the
Republican party In tho discussion of
tho tariff question.
The American dolcgatcs to tho Con
gicss havo been sounding tho members
of tho Scnato recently to learn, so far
as possible, with what reception a re
ciprocity treaty would meet at tho
hands of tho Scnato. Tho result hai
been altogether favorablo, and as a con
scquenco tho Republican members of
tho W ays and Means Committee, before
handing In the bill prepared by them.
restored tho duty which they had origi
nally agreed to plnco on hides, but
which tho New England members had
persuaded them to remove.
Slnco tho bill was announced it has
been freely predicted that the Now
England Republicans would not vote
for it In Its present form, and the confi
dence of tho majority of tho Ways and
Means Committee has created surprise.
It now develops that, so far as can bo
learned on unofficial authority, an un
derstanding has been had with
Blaine by which tho President, at
the request of the State Depart
ment, will recommend to tho Senato a
treaty with the Argentine Republic and
any other South American country
which may wish to negotiate such a
treaty. In fact, it Is not at all certain
that tho treaty with tho Argentine Re
public may not havo been negotiated
before this, and that It Is not ready for
transmittal to the Senate whenever Mr.
Blaine may consider tho subject ripe.
Now England Congressmen say the
negotiation and ratification of such a
treaty would bo a complete offset to the
duty which has been placed on hides In
tho McKlnley bill; that it would mean
practically free wool. Leading mem
bers of the Scnato Committee on
Finance, before whom this proposition
was laid to-day by a reporter of tho
United Press, said that if agreed to it
would undoubtedly answer all of the
objections to tho McKinlcy bill which
could possibly bo lalscd by the Now
The pendency of this proposition
probably accounts for tho quiet atti
