Washington, Dec. 17. Congressman D.
C. Haskell of Kansa died here at an early
hour yesterday morning. Hi death I deeply
deplored by bis congressional aitocla'es.
He wss one of the ablest and beat equipped
of the Republican leader in tbebouie. HI
health was broken last winter by tbe ardu
ous and entbus astlc work bestowed by him
011 tariff legislation. He was in poor health
when be came here at the belnnlng ot the
month to enter upon bi fourth congress
ional term, but b s prostration prevented
bis taking his seat.
On account of the ill-health of Judge
Keller, Haskell was generally recognized as
tbe leader of tbe Republicans of
the last congres in tbe discussion
of tbe tariff bill. Those who knew
him heat say no' member of tbe bouse
was belter acquainted with every detail of
tbe tariff than he. He was an ardent pio
tectinnist, and while the tariff bill was
pending devoted to that subject nearly the
whole of his time and after that bad con
ferences wiib manufacturers and others In-tere-ied
in tt at late hours of tbe night. To
bis indefatigable labors in connection with
tariff legislation is largely attributed the Ill
health which ended in bl death. He wa
not well when he returned to bl home after
adjournment of Congress last spring, and
d urine tbe summer visited a health resort
in the Northwest, and finally about a mouth
ago came to Waihlngtou. At all these
places be was treated for different diseases,

rooms. He contemplated last week being
