Tho enterprising artist, to accomplish his
desired aim, formod a deep-laid plot, which
was to bo carried out with tho assistanco
of a confederate. It was like this: Tho
confederate was to accost Mr. Hums on tho
street, get him up In the vicinity of tbo artist's
placo of business, and then ongago
him lu conversation, while tho artist got in
bis work. The scliomo appeared to bo
working nicely, and doubtless would have
succeeded had not tho subject's attention
been attracted by a crowd gathering up
the street, which aroused Ids suspicious.
Said tho old gentleman: "It took 1110 but
an In.stuiit to discover the muzzle of tho
camera directed toward mo, and I hastened
to get out of rango before it wont off."
Detectives H. B. Morgan and Mark Lar-ton,
the latter a now one, aro in this city
looking up clews bearing on tho Zora

times during the past month, and
from tho tenor of his talk ho Is not particularly
desirous of having any one convicted;
but, on tho other hand, is wholly

to bring about his acqulttul. Ho Is looking

a view of obtaining such evidenco as will
establish the fact that she had been
of easy virtue for soveral years pust. Ho
holds to the theory thut tho man who
accompanied Zora Burns from this placo
to Lincoln is her murderor. Larton is
working in tho interests of tho people, and

Erie, Pa., Dec. a A young lady of
appearance, giving the name of
Amelia Royso, of Cincinnati, accompanied
by a shabbily dressed man giving the name
of Charles Trayner, of Utica, N. Y., entered
tho court of Judgo Froemau Saturday and
nskod to bo married. After tho preliminary
quostions were askod, the marrlagowas

uusuauu and coldly but quietly told him
that ho would lose his truin if he wasted
too much time. He bade the lady
nnd loft tho room. After his departure
tho Judy, remarking to tho Judgo that
soma explanation was duo him for tho
strange proceeduro, said: "There Is nothing
wrong in nil this. No crimo, no despair,
nothing tragic. I am simply putting
it out of my power to say
'Yes' to tho only man on earth
It would ploaso and hurt me most to
marry. For private reasons I can not
marry this gentleman without bringing
great sorrow upon both of us in tho futuro,
and, to place myself beyond reach of
temptation, I have married this stranger.
It is not likely tliat I shall ever see this
man Trayner again. Ho porfoctly understands
thut ho was hired to marry me, and
then go about bis business." After requesting
tho Judgo to Inform the newspapers
of tho marrlago and to forwar.d
copies of tho papers to tho Baltimore Sun,
Washington Critic and Denver Tribune,
and laying n twenty dollar gold piece on

FIXING UP THE SLATE.
GUESSING AT THE SPEAKER'S LlST.

Probnblo .Olmlrtnaniulpi of .tlio Loading
Committees What the Dofentud
Candidates are I.lkoly to Oct
Wasiiinoto.v, Dec. a The oxcitemont
which has prevailed here for the past two
weeks over tho Speakership contest subsided
suddenly with the nomination of Mr.
Carlisle. The results of Saturday night's
caucus work have been the chief topic of
conversation among politicians, publio
men, ofllco holders aud olUcoRoukers, in the
hotols, and, in fact, everywhere where two
or three could get together. Tho contest
for tbo Speakership engendered no bitter
feeling amone tho candidates and their
friends, and has beenremuiknbly freo from
ersonalltics and unploasant episodes, so
tho soronoss resulting from defeat felt by
tho adhorcnts of Mossrs. Randull and Cox
will, it is belioved, Boon wear away.
t Now that tho contest Is ended, tho gossips
are busily engaged In arranging tho House
committees. Mr. Carlisle will, many claim,
go Into tho Speakor's chair lewhutnporod
by political bargains and arrangements
mado by himself or his "friends that any
Speaker for years past. Various stories
aro afloat as to what members will bo made
chnlrmon of the most important committees.
This is especially tho caso in regard
to the chairmanship of tho Committee
on Ways and Means. It is thought this
will go to Mr. Morrison, of Illinois, but It
is also rumored that the chairmanship of
this committee will be tlvon to Hon Randolph
Tucker, of Virginia, as tho only
member of that delegation who supported
Carllslo for tbo Speakership, and that Mr.
Mori Ison, of Illinois, will be given thesecond
pluco on tho Ways mid Means and a chairmanship
on a less Important committee.
Mr. Randall will without doubt have tho
C'ominltteo on Appropriation aud also a
prominent place on the Ways nud Means
Committee. It is said that Representative
Cox will bo made Chairman of tho
on Commerce, or, if ho should prefer
it, will be given tho Banking aiiil Cur
rency committee. Thoru uie stories calculated
to suit all tastes respecting the
chairmen and members of tho other
committees, but It Is too early to
pi edict with any degree of certainty where
members will bo plaiod. Mr. Carlisle will
probably not begin the work of preparing
the committee list until Tuesday, and, unit
ss Ik. is more successful than his predecessors
have been, tho v. oik will nut be completed
much befoie tho nilddloof tho mouth.
There is a dlsosltioii among leading Democrats
to have the Committee on Appropriations
organized so that work can be
gotten under way there prior to tho holiday
recess. To-day's sossion In the House
will probably bo developed, after organization,
to hearing the reading of the President's
messugo, although some members
nro of tho opinion that even the reading of
tho messugo will be deferred until Tuesday.
Tho seleotlou of seats will occupy
0110 day, and some members me in favor of
devoting to this work.
Tho several newly selected subordinate
olllcers of the Houmi have already received
numerous applications for positions iu
their respective departments, and, in the
language of one of tbo present Incumbents,
"The outs are terribly hungry, and I
suppose we shall all be invited to
vacate our positions in loss than twenty-four
hours." Nearly every now member
has come to Washington expecting to lind
places for from one to a half dozon of tholr
constituents, nnd tho demnnd ujion the
subordinate ofilcers of the Houso are unusually
harassing. The Republican Senators
expect to holt! a caucus on Tuesday
for tho purpose of nonilnntlni; olllcers for
tho Senate. The Sunday Horald says
authorltlvely that "Senators Mahone and
RIddlebergor will not enter this caucus,
aud that they will vote for no 0110 for Secretary
but Mr. George C. Gorham. It is
generally conceded that the Democratic
members will offer no opposition to the
proposod reorganization of the Senate
olllees. Cnlhoakor, of Vermont, tho retiring
sergeant at arms of tbo House, says
ho thinks be will secure tho same position
at the other end of the Capitol. Mr Janios
Young, of Philadelphia, is strongly urged
for the position Of Executlvo Clerk, and

Tho Dondly Outgrowth of an Old
Platte Citt, Mo., Dec. 3. John Woodson,
Deputy Sheriff, was shot and klllod at
Camden Point by a blacksmith named Tipton.
Tho two men had had troublo before,
and tho tragedy was pai tly the outgrowth
of a grudge. Tipton, it is reported, was
under the infiuenco of liquor and Woodson
attempted to arrest him. Woodson drew
his revolver, and Tipton putting his hand
into bis pocket, which contained a revolver,
fired through his coat Woodson was a son
of ox-Governor Woodson, of Missouri. The
grudge grew out of an occurrence about a
yenr ago. Tipton had a colored girl
bound to him to work and a colored fellow
took her away. Tipton is said to havo got
a crowd together to go after and lynch tho
colored follow and rocovor the gltl. This
failed, and the crowd was arrested by
Deputy Sheriff Woodson. The crowd be
ing cleared on trial, there has boon a
enmity between them slnco. Thursday
thoy met In a store and quarreled, but
were prevented from lighting. Both of
them got on their horses when tho shooting
took place, as above stated. Woodson was
shot in tho stomach aud died this morning
at 4 o'clock.

KENTUCKY WHISKY POOI
MOVEMENT TO LIMIT PRODUCTION,
The Distillers1 Meeting Tlml
la to lie Meld j Louisville
on the Twelfth of
Louisville, Ky., Dec a-A meotlng ol
the distillers of Kentucky Is called to con
vene at the Pheonix-Hotel In Lexington on
Wednesday, December 13, for tho purpos
of organizing a pool to control the production
of whisky throughout the State.
Tho necessity for such, an organization hat
been keenly felt since the enormous
of tho seasons of 1831 and
183. About 33.000,000 gallons of whisky
wore produced In Kentucky In each of those
years, and tho result was that tho market
was overstocked and tho distilleries were
compelled to suspend operations During
ine season ot itXM, which embraced the
months from the fall of 1883 to the spring
of 18K3, only 0,000,000 gallons wore
In Kentucky. There is a steadily
increasing demand all over the country" for
Kentucky whisky, but this demand does
not exceed over' 13,000,000 gallons jwr year.
The object of tho distillers of this State
now is to form a pool and not produco any
more whisky than the actual demand for
it requires. At a meeting of the Stato Distillers'
Assoclatlou somo time ago this idea
was deuounced, and tlio matter was referred
to a committee to solicit tho
of those." distillers all over the
State who favbred tho formation of a pool.
This committee has been hard at work, ami
It has succeeded in getting tbo signatures
of distillers representing In the aggrcgato
nbout sixty per cent of the producing capacity
of all tho distilleries In the State.
All of the largest distillers hare signified
their willingness to enter tho pool, and it is
only the small producers who havo staid
out When the coimnittoo was appointed
to obtain the signatures it, was generally
understood that if sixty per cent of tho producing
capacity could be obtalnod the pool
would lie formed, and now that tho
per cent has been obtained the meeting
for the 12th of December has boon calks!
for the nurnoso of nut llin I. Ion
advanced some time ago.
If a pool Is formed, and there Is every Indication
that It will be, tho plan of producing
12,000,000 gallons of whisky per
senson will apply to overy year in the future,
or until the demand becomes so much
grenter that a larger production Is
By the forming of a pool distilleries
will lie scaled according Uj tho capacity,
and iu this scaling tho smaller distilleries
will be favored to a greater extent than
the larger ones, for if tho smnll distillers
wero not allowed to run their establishments
to almost tholr full capacity thoy
could barely make a living.
