House Considers All'iilr.H Relating

Civil Service Commission.
Washington, Feb. 8. Practically the
whole of today's session of the senate
took place behind closed doors, the
question under consideration being the
Anglo-American arbitration treaty.
During the morning; hour, before the
motion to proceed to executive busi
ness was made by Jlr. Sherman, ot
Ohio, chairman of the committee on
foreign relations, the senate Indulged
in an exhibition of its utter disregard
of the rensons nssigned by President
Cleveland for withholding his npproval
from a bill passed by both houses. It
was a bill creating a now judicial dis
trict in Texas. The United States
judge, district attorney, marshal and
clerk had reported to the department
of justice that the proposed legislation
was not only unnecessary, but that it
would be a serious interruption to the
business of the court. And on that re
port the president had ncted In vetoing
the bill. Ho was roundly taken to
task by Mr. Mills, of Texas, for having
consulted those oillclals Instead of con
sulting the two senators and thirteen
representatives from the state of Tex
as. Remarkably enough, however,
Mr, Hoar, of Massachusetts, found
"very strong, good and honest rea
sons" for the president's action, but
still favored the bill In the interest of
the people living In the counties em
braced within the new district. And
when It eriine to the yea and nay vote
there was but one senator Calfery, of
Louisiana recorded nsnlnst the bill,
while there wore fifty-seven senators
voting to pass it, notwithstanding the
A concurrent resolution for the with
drawal of a bill from the president on
account of the discovery of a sunstnu
tlal mistake in It, led Yir. Hill, of Now
York, to ciuestlon the constitutionality
of such a proposition, and the matter
went over for further consideration.
SESSIONS OP THE HOUSE.
Today's session of the house was tak
en almost wholly In the consideration
of business relntlng to the District of
Columbia. None of the bills were of
more than local Importance. Returns
of the votes of the several states for
presidential electors, which the law di
rects shall be sent to the speaker, will
be laid before the house and will re
main on the table until the olllelul
canvass of the vote on Wednesday,
The second agreement of the conferees
on the Immigration bill was presented
to the house by Mr. Dan forth, who
gave notice that he would call It up for
CIVIL SERVICE REPORTS.
Facts ltcvealcd by tho Annual State
ment of tho Commission.
Washington, Fob. S. The annual re
port of the civil service commission
to tho president shows that at the be
ginning of President Cleveland's last
administration there were about -irs.000
places IncludeJ In the classified ser
vice. This report embodies the work
of the commission for the past two
years,' as the report for 1895 was not
issued, owing to the various amend
ments made to it by the president, and
tho commission deferred its report for
that year so as to include tho thou
sands of positions placed under tho
classified service during the past eigh
teen months. The total approximate
number of positions in 'the civil branch
of the government Is 17S.717, of which
S7.107 are In the classified service, und
91,010 In the unclassllled service.
Of those not yet classified, Cfi,723 are
postmasters of ths fourth class. Of
those remaining In the classifiable, but
unclassified group, many will be trans
ferred to the classified service by tho
action of the rules, ns, for instance,
in the customs service, when the num
ber of employes in a custom house be
comes as many as five, and in the
postofllco service when a postofllce be
comes a free delivery olllce.
The nggrogate compensation paid In
the executive civil seivice of the Unit
ed States during the year ended Juno
20, 1S9G, was $100,000,000.
Tho whole number examined for tho
five branches of tho classified service
during the year were at, 370, of whom
20,49:; passed and 10,870 failed to puss.
Under the head of removals the re
port says that during the last four
years the removals from competitive
positions in the classlfleu departmental
service at Washington have been less
than 2 per cent, a year for all causes,
not including such removals as result
ed from necessary reductions In the
force. In the unclassified and except
ed service at Washington, the remov
als are believed to have aggregated In
the four years at least 50 per cent. By
the revision of the civil service rules,
practically all of tho excepted posi
tions were transferred to the competi
tive list. Tho commission believes thut
the greatest benefit will result to the
public service by this action, which
transferred to tho competitive list
many Important positions, including
those of chiefs of divisions.
The report mentions the consolida
tion of small otllces with free delivery
offices and says that fourth-class post
otllces should be Included In tho classi
fication by executive order.
When these extensions of tho classi
fication have been made and the four
year tenure of office acta are repealed,
and when regulations aro in success
ful operation in all the departments
requiring that promotions be based
upon tho efficiency of employes, the
reforms In, tho executivo civil servico
will bo practically complete. The ser
vice will then be restored to that con
dition in which it was intended to bo
kept by tho wise founders of our gov
ernment. HELPED TO BEAT JAY GOULD.
Death of A. SI. Hillings, Who Unci
Thut Uniiiua Distinction.
Chicago, 111., Feb. 8. A. M. Billlnus,
founder of the People's Gas Light and
Coke company, of the Homo National
bank and of the Home Savings bank,
died yesterday at tho ago of 83 years,
He originally owned tlio Springs at
Saratoga, N. Y. Mr. Hillings and Cor
nelius Garrison, of New orlc, enjoyed
the unique distinction of havlnp; dis
tanced Jay Gould In a business deal
and obtained from the little wizard a
largo profit on their Investment.
Some years ago, when Mr. Gould was
buying railroads, Messrs, Hillings and
Garrison were In control of Missouri
Pacific and losing money on It every
day. Learning that Mr. Gould was
quietly buying up the stock, they wan
ed for him to discover that they lu'tl
the key to the situation, and at the
proper time sold out to him at a high
llgure. Mr. Billings leaves an estate
valued at $20,000,000.

MILLIONAIRE TO HANG.
Money Cnnnot Save the Neck of the
Fiend Rum and Fast Women
Led to His Downfall.
St. Louis, Mo., Feb. S. The first mil
lionaire ever executed for murder In
the United States will be hanged hero
on Tuesday, Feb. 10. It will be a quad
ruple hanging, but Interest will be
llxed on Arthur Duestrow, who killed
his young wife and 2-year-old child
three years ago. The exact time which
will have elapsed from the date of the
commission of the crime until tho pun
ishment of tho criminal will be three
years and three days, as tho double
murder occurred Feb. 13, 1834.
Arthur Duestrow Is about SO years
old and belongs to one of the oldest and
best known families In Missouri. Ills
father made his money in mining
stocks, and when he died ho left a for
tune of more than $2,000,000 to his
widow and two children. Tho widow
did not long survive her husband, and
then Arthur Duestrow became a mil
lionaire in his own right. Ills sister,
Miss Huldah Duestrow, inherited the
other half of the estate.
Soon after his father's death he ninr
rled Miss Albertlna Lelssc, and about
that time entered the St. Louis Medi
cal college, from which he was gradu
ated with honors.
For a short time Duestrow aband
oned the bibulous habits he had formed
and his friends believed that he had
sowed his wild oats and had settled
down to a respectable life. A baby
boy came to tho Duestrow home and
the young husband and wife were
proud and happy. Hut when tho baby
was about a year old Duestrow fell
from grace. He became Infatuated
with Clara Allen, or Howard, the
keeper of an improper house in St.
When tho baby boy was two years
old the climax enme. About 4 o'clock
on the afternoon of Feb. 1,1, 1S91, Dues
trow drove up to his homo in a sleigh.
His wife saw him from a window and
sent her maid down to see if ho wanted
her to go riding with him. Duestrow
was intoxicated, a condition that had
become quite common, and he insult
ingly replied to tho maid's query. She
turned and started back Into the
house, when Duestrow, apparently en
raged, jumped from the sleigh and
started after her. She became fright
ened and ran upstairs, taking refuge in
Mrs. Duestrow's room. Duestrow fol
lowed and struck the girl.
"How dare you strike that girl?" ex
claimed Mrs. Duestrow. "If you want
to hit somo one, hit me."
The maddened man struck her, and
she turned and ran into tho hall. He
followed, heating her. In the hall she
turned to defend herself and pushed
him. He staggered and fell ngajnst tho
wall, and almost immediately drew a,
revolver and fired. The bullet took ef
fect in the woman's side, and she sank
to the fioor. Then Duestrow, apparent
ly realized what he had done and bent
over his wife, calling her by name and
asking her to look up and speak to him.
Just then Louis, the baby, toddled in
to his father's arms and began kissing
The caresses of the child seemed to
again enrage the father, and he turned
on It in a fury. With his baby clasped
tightly to his breast, Duestrow placed
the revolver against the child's tem
ple and sent a bullet crashing through
tho infant's hend.eauslng instant death.
Then he placed the body beside that of
the dying mother, bent low and fired
another bullet through her head and
fled from the house.
Duestrow ran to tho nearest police
station, where ho wildly exclaimed: "It
was an accident an accident, I tpll you.
I am no murderer. I did not kill her."
These words helped later to condemn
him when ho pleaded insanity in de
fense of his double crime.
Duestrow was locked up and has been
In jail ever since. The legal light to
save his life begun at the coroner's in
quest nnd has continued ever since. The
case was taken on a change of venue to
an adjoining county. Kmlnent counsel
were employed and a dozen experts at
tempted to prove that Duestrow was
menially irresponsible when he shot his
wife nnd child.
Despite all that money could do, Dues
trow was convicted. Then his attorney
asked for a new trial, secured a stay of
execution und appealed the case to tin
supremo court of Missouri. For three
years tho fight has gone on. At last
justice has won. Last Tuesday the su
premo court, which had previously sus
tained the finding of tho lower tribunal
refused to grant the petition for a re
hearing, and now nothing can save the
millionaire murCircr's life. The feeling
In St. Louis and in Missouri is that an
appeal to the executive clemency would

New York, Fob. S. Considering all
the developments during the day's ses
sion at the stock exchange, the markets
for securities held up remurkahlv well.
The news nnd rumors wero well calcu
lated to lead to marked depression, but
execept in tho case of the industrials
tho bears made but little impression
upon values. The first news was lower
quotations nnd selling orders from Lon
don. Then came the state senate Inves
tigation Into the affairs of the sugar
trust which caused the stock to break
nearly three points. Tobacco fell 1;
Leather preferred 1',, In the remain
der of tho list tho losses were only U to
1 per cent, although great efforts was
put forth to make capltul out of the
vague rumors concerning an alleged
disruption of the Joint Traffic associa
tion. The crowning effort of the bears
however, was a cunningly devised state
ment that a fleet had been ordered to
Cuba to release American prisoners but
the denial came so quickly that the
market was not affected. Sugar moved
up over two points. Other stocks le
covered U to 1 per cent, from the low
est. Other stocks closed quiet and firm
In tone. Total sales l!7,000 shares. Not
changes show losses of i',?li per con!.
