1 Police Inspector Carlson Talks
of Two Men Whom He Has
INVESTIGATION NOW ON
Arrests Are Made Upon De
scriptions Furnished, Fol
lowing a Burglary.
Arrested on a specific charge of bur
glary and suspected by the polico of
having been involved in the murder of
C. J. Van den Akkor of the Commer
cial Guard and Safety association ear
ly last Tnesday morning, Edward
I Malsh, 21 years of age, an Australian,
was lodged in the city prison 3'cstor
day morning. "When searched at po
lice headquarters, iMalsh had a black
mask in his inner coat pocket and is
alleged to have been wearing clothing
stolen from tie La Moll hotel Satur
Shortly after the arrest - of Malsh,
.T. A. Buell, 28 years o ago, was ar
rested and is alleged to be Malsh 's ac
complice. While both men stoutly deny
connection with tho murder, the police
say they have rensons to hold tho men
for further Investigation. Both were
arrested by Patrolmen Lester Wiro and
H. D. McMartin.
Police Inspector Carl A. Carlson, who
has been in chargo of the Van den Ak
kor murder 'investigation, said last
night that from- the description fur
nished the police by persons seeing two
slender men running in an opposite di
rection from the lawn of W. W. Arm
strong's home at 1177 East South Tem
ple street, where tho murder was com
mitted, tho two under arrest may very
likely be tho men-wanted.
Both Malsh and Bucjl were jmt
through a rigid examination yestesjflay
and are said toJiavshown. signs of
extreme nervousness. They were meas
ured aiul their general sizo,x according
to the police, corresponds to tho de
scription, that was furnished of the
murderers. Each Resiles that he has
ever seen the other, but tho police
have the suspects locked in separate
cells in order that they may not con
verse with each other.
Malsh was arrested following a re
ported burglary at tho La Moll hotel
Saturday night in which three trunks
were pri.ed open and largo quantities
of clothing and other valuables takon.
The burglars were seen leaving tho ho
tel, and tho description furnished led to
the apprehension of Malsh and Buell.
Malsh was found in the American
rooming house and later Buell was
found in Commercial street.
A search of Malsh 's room failod to
reveal any revoh'ea A large suitcase
contained, among numerous othor arti
cles, a dagger twelve inches in length.
When arrested Malsh was not carrying
a gun. Buoll had no deadly weapons,
although his room has not been found.
' Inspector's Statement.
Inspector Carlson, who has been in
charge of the investigation, said:
''The men are both young and, ac
cording to my ideas, one of them may
have fired the fatal shot, not realiz
ing what he was doing. Wo will in
vostigato tho case carefully."
Van den Akker was found in the
yard of W. W. Armstrong's home, hav
ing been shot once1 through the back.
Shots had been heard shortly before by
noighbors and by Mr. Armstrong's
Numerous chics have been followed
up by tho polico and practically all of

Growing Determination on
Part of Democratic Leaders
to Revise Tariff and De
part for Home.
CAUCUS WILL TAKE
ACTION THIS WEEK
Senators O'Gorman and
Chamberlain Continue Their
Fight Against Ratification
of British Treaty.
WASHINGTON, Juno 15. Develop
ments? of the last week at both ends of
the capltol have Indicated a growing
determination on the part of the Demo
cratic leaders of congress to pass a tariff
bill and wind up the work of the extra
sosslon without action upon currency
reform or any other important subject.
The tariff revision bill Is to be pushed
to completion and laid before the Demo
crats of tho senato in caucus before
the end of this week. In tho meantime,
notwithstanding President Wilson's re
peatedly expressed desire to s'oo some
posltivo action taken toward the re
form of the nation's currency system,
congressional forces of the party in both
houses are showing a disposition to de
fer action on monetary reform until the
regular session opening next Decem
ber. No Currency, Law.
While tho senato currency committee
took no definite action, many members,
Including Influential Democrats, openly
expressed the opinion that no currency
law would be enacted at this session.
The tariff is to come into the senate
for the second stage of revision within
ten days." The"'Renate ilnanco commit
tee will complote work upon it early
IhlB week, and an immediate call will
be Issued for a Democratic caucus. It
is behoved the bill will b0 formally pre
sented to the senate, ready for debate
in that body by JunoSB.
The arbitration treaties sent In some
time ago extending existing agreements
with Great Britain and several other
countries, have not been touched in the
senate for nearly ton days. In the mean
time the president and Secretary Bryan
are understood to have urged Senators
Chamberlain and O'Gorman to withdraw
tholr opposition to the British treaty,
and allow its ratification.
Will Not Quit Fight
Both senators have 6ta.ted openly with
in the last fow days, however, that they
do not propose to withdraw opposition,
or permit the extension of the British
arbitration pact. unlcsB It 1h forced upon
them by a two-thirds vote of tho sen
ate. Tholr opposition is based on the
belief that the United States should
not again bind Itself to a treaty that
Great Britain construes as forcing this
country to submit the Panama canal
dispute to arbitration. If the British
treaty la to be removed, both senators
demand that a clause bo inserted ex
pressly exempting the Panama canal tolls
question aB a subject of arbitration.
This will be a busy weulc among the
Democrats of the senate in charge of tho
tariff bill. The majority members will
meet all day and late Into the night
passing on sub-committee reports. Sen
ator Williams's sub-committee, the hard
est worked of all or them, labored until
a late hour today putting the finishing
touches to the administrative provisions
of the bill, and the income tax. They
will report tomorrow.
Many Alterations. .
The Underwood bill, with Ub adminis
trative reforms, it Is known, has been
greatly altered by this sub-committee.
The clause granting a 5 per cent tariff
discount on imports in American-owned
or controlled ships, has been stricken
out; the antl-dumplng clause, which
would have cxaoted penalty duties on
undersold foreign goods In American
markots, has been eliminated because of
Its alleged Impracticability and challenge
to retaliation; tho Inquisitorial clause,
objected to by foreign nations, has been
greatly modified and may be ellmlnatod,
and tho features designed by the ways
and means committee to prevent under
valuations have been revived.
In readjusting the administrative
clauses tho oub-commlttoo has had the
aid of Secretary McAdoo, Assistant Sec
retary Curtis and Assistant Attorney
General Denlson. ;
"To readjust those administrative
clauses," Chairman Simmons said today:
"has been a stupendous work, but I be
lieve that the way has been cleared so
that few problems are to bo met In the
Provisions Kept Secret.
"The full text of the bill, as approved
by the finance committee majority, will
not be made public before tho caucus.
We feel that tho caucus should consider
the recommendations of the commlttoe
and act thereon boforn we publish the
bill, because tho caucus may make
changes and, after all, It Is the caucus
monBurn which goo3 to tho senato.
"I do not believe that there will bo
much troublo In the caucus, All the big
problems In the tariff which confronted
the party In the senat have been set

proceeded. I look for fow alterations of
