flic Business to Do Transacted tiy tho Law
makers This Woo It.
UsiltNOTOjr, March SO. It Is' ex
pected that consideration of tho sundry
civil appropriation bill will bo tho first
business of the houso this week. Tho
radical changes made by tho bill will
doubtless causo much discussion and
several days may bo spent over it. Tho
reduction of tho appropriation for con
tinuing contract river and harbor work
and public buildings in course of con-'
struction onto a basis of eight
months' operations, i on tho theory
that tho remaindor of tho year
can bo provided for'at tho 'next session
of congress, will bo attacked by tho
democratic members of tho committee
on appropriations. Other provisions
not so radical, will also be the subject
of criticism, but no Bcrious addition to
tho total carried in tho bill is antici
pated. When tho sundry civil bill has
been gotten out of tho way, Sir. Ilitt
will call tip the conferonco report on
tho Cuban question ,which recommends
that tho houso agreo to tho sonatc reso
lutions. Tho coming week In the senate will
bo devoted to tho consideration of ap
propriation bills and routlno business.
Tho bill to japprovo tho compromise
between tho United States and tho
stato of Arkansas, which has been tho
unfinished business for two weeks, but
which has not been passed, will be con
sidered Monday. Thoro appears to bo
little hopo of Its passage, and thoro
likowiso appears to bo a disposi
tion to dovote Monday only to its con
sideration. Tho post office bill will bo
laid before tho full committeo Monday
and an effort made to report to tho sen
ate during tho day. If this is done It
will bo called up in the senate Tues
day. Tho Indian and naval bills aro
beforo tho committee on appropria
tions and it is believed that tho Indian
bill will bo reported before tho week Is
out, although the houso action relative
to the appropriation for Indian schools
is likely to causo somo dobato in
committee. After tho post office
bill is disposed of tho sonatc wil prob
ably'renow tho discussion on Mr. Can
non's resolution directing tho secretary
of tho Interior to obey the law opening
tho Uncompaghro reservation to settle
ment. This, several days ago, was
made the unfinished business after tho
Arkansas matter should bo disposed of.
Tho bill to protect fur seals from ex
termination is demanding attention,
and an,effort will bo made to get it up.
Tho rcmaipder of the week will bo
probably devoted to consideration of
bills on tho calendar.
''The Contest In tho Sixth CongresBlonnl
District of Indiana.
Indianapolis, Ind., March 30. The
most notablo .campaign for a nomina
tion for office that has over taken
place in Indiana is drawing to a close
in tho Sixth congressional district. It
looks now as if tho contest would coma
to an end without a personal encounter
between II. U. Johnson and James E.
Watson, the principals, though tho
friends of each did not sco a week ago
how trouble could bo averted. Tho
contest will bo decided Wednesday by
the primary elections in Henry county,
which has been tho battle ground for
the last weelc. All tho other counties
in tho district havo held primaries, and
tho two candidates havo come to Henry
with about equal strength.
During tho past week Johnson has
made 14 speeches in tho county and
Watson has made 12. The republican
voters in tho county havo become so ex
cited over the contest that neighbors
havo quarreled until they no longer
speak. Family relations have oven be
come strained on account of tho bitter
ness engendered by tho contest. Sat
urday night? tho friends of the two can
didates gathered in Newcastle in largo
numbers and fights wero numerous.
Both candidates will return to their
scats in congress immediately after the
Henry county primaries.

Suspicion Itest on a Neighbor.
Cleveland, O., March 30. At one
o'clock Sunday morning the most fiend
Jsh deed that has overclaimed entrance
to the criminal history of Ohio, was
perpetrated near Tallmadgo, a village
five miles north of Akron.
Alvin Stone, aged 09, and his wlfo,
aged 02, while asleep at their home
Were brutally murdered by a fiend, who
literally beat their heads to pieces,
after which numerous knife thrusts
wero mado into tho bodies of tho dead.
Two daughters, Hattio, aged 29, Emma,
aged 27, and tho family servant, A. F.
Stillson, were also attacked. All three
of these are fatally injured and nro un
conscious and bleeding at tho homo
awaiting death. They had been beaten
about tho head with a blunt instrument
which of itself mu3t havo been large
and of great weight.
Alvin Stone and his wife wore mem
bers of the wealthiest and most promi
nent families in Northeastern Ohio.
Tho object of tho murderous assault
was not robbery as numerous articles
of value, including tho two gold watches
of tho aged couple, which were on the
(bedroom dresser, were not taken. The
(crimo is shrouded in mystery and tho
whole county is agitated. The only
suspicion as yet rests on one John
1 Smith, who is employed at Woodward
Parker's blacksmith shop, one-eighth of
1 a mile from tho Stone homestead on
tho Kent road. Smitli was discharged
i by Alvin Stono two weeks ago. Tho
former was a chores man about tho
place. Tho two men had words and
Smith departed in great anger. Ho ia
now under police survoilaucc.
Ono member of the family alone es
caped injury, a daughter, aged 10. Sho
is laboring under intenso excitement,
but was able, between tears and hys
terical sobs, to tell what she knew of
tho affair. Tho old folks, sho said, oc
cupied a chamber on the lower floor.
' Hattic and Flora slept upstairs, Emma
across the hal' and tho hired man at
I tho rear end oi tho hallway on tho
J same floor. At about 1 o'clock Sunday
I morning, Flora heard an agonizing
scream from Emma. Sho jumped from
bqd,and, opening ,tho door started to
, cross tho hall. Hattie followed her. Flora
turning beforo sho entered Emma's
' room, tho door of which was open, saw
a masked man strike Hattio over tho
1 head with what looked like a crowbar.
Hattio, with a groan, fell senseless to
tho floor, while Flora In terror ran
back to her room and hid under tho
bed clothes. Hattio, who is a woman
of remarkable vitality, de'spito her
frightful injury, aroso and going into
Flora's room asked her to throw
something over her head. Flora was
too frightened to move. Hattio left
her room and entering that of her
sister, noticed tho window was
J open and that a ladder reached up to it
I from tho ground. Sho wrapped a quilt
around her and went down tho ladder
running to Charles Sackett's farm, a
' quarter of a mile away, whero sho told
I her story and collapsed. Two of tho
oaciccii's nurncu to ino atono nouse,
while another summoned a physician.
When thoy arrived the houso was pitch
dark. Tho sldo door was open. Enter
ing tho room occupied by tho old folks
they wero confronted by the two
horribly mutilated bodies of tho
t father and mother. Emma was
found unconscious on tho floor
of her bed room. Sho had been struck
a,fearful blow over tho forehead and
still lies as one dead. Tho hired man
was found In his room in tho same con
dition, no had also beon struck over
tho forehead. Flora was found under
under the bed clothes in speechless
fright. In a fow minutes the whole
neighborhood for miles around was
aroused and hundreds assembled about
tho Stono homestead. The sceno was
terribly impressive. Tho rago of thoso
who for so many years had lived with
and loved the amiable, honest
Stono family know no bounds.
The Akron police department
was notified and Detective Dunn,
Marshal Mason, Sheriff Griffin and
First Deputy Hart hurried to tho
scene. Thoy arrived at 9 o'clock. They
found what appoarcd to bo tracks of a
man leaving tho side door, which was
open, and ending at tho road. Tho
rain, which had steadily poured all
night, had, however, obliterated tho
tracks along the road. Bloodhounds
wero put Into service but thoy could
do nothing, owing to tho rain.
Tho Impression seems that Smith is
not the right man and committees
are organizing to scour tho country in
every direction. From all tho indica
tions of thoso who aro starting' to hunt
down tho murderer it is idle to attempt
a forecast of what will happen if ho is
caught. Thoro is but one fato in Btoro
for him if ho foil into tho hands of tho
citizens who aro looking for him, aided
by the bloodhounds.

his wife was staying Saturday, and
asked her if she would go back and live
with him. Sho refused, and ho drow a
revolver and shot her twice. Ono bul
let entered her hip and tho other
pierced her left breast just bo
low the shoulder. Gorrell then
snapped the revolver at his own head
repeatedly, but it would not go off. Ho
then went to the kitchen and seizing a
butcher knifo tried to cut his throat,
but It was too dull. He then ran to
his father-in-law's room and securing
his razor, cut his throat. Ho mado
such a desperate stroke at his throat
that the head was almost severed from
the body and ho fell dead.
Mrs. Gorrell, notwithstanding the
two wounds sho received, seems to suf
fer littlo pain and will probably re
