which time he has been ut home. It Is
whether the act is due to remorse occa
sioned by the part taken In the killing ol
Jesse James or from profligacy.
He has been living a pretty fast life ol
late and it Is generally understood that
ino.-t of the money accumulated by ex
hibiting in St. Louis and other parts of
the country has disappeared and that
Charley has been quite moody aud low
spirited of lute, and attributes their pe
cuniary misfortunes to his brother's gen
H1K PAIU If TI.AKS.
Richmond, Mo., May t;. Your corrc
fpondeiident has jut come from the
Ford farm. The particulars of the
tragedy areas follows: Charley returned
from Kansas City on Thursday, and
has oecu taking Morphine regularly to
allay the pain of bladder disease, lie
sullered from both gravel disease and
consumption, and could not have lived
long at any rate.
lie was uite cheerful at the breakfast
table this morning, but he had not been
long upstairs aiterward when his young
wife aud his mother heard a shot and the
sound ol a pistol falling to the floor.
They ran up fearfully aud louud Ford ly
ing ou his bed,
llllK.U llINCi iiahd.
H!ood w as oozing from his mouth aud
nostrils. The pistol, a large Colt live
shooter, wa placed against his breast
over the heart. It had burned a large
hole In the outer shirt.
The dead man, looks emaciated. No
scrap of paper or anything was left to in
dicate that the deed' was premeditated.
The Inquest was held at two o'clock, the
verdict being suicide. The burial will be
in the new cemetery here, which Is ia
sight of the Ford farm-house. It was in
this house that Wood Hite was killed, it
Is said, by Charley and Bob Ford, who
then buried him in the old spring. His
body was afterward taken up and placed
in the cemetery. Ford's parents arc ol
good reputatiou here.
The News in St. Joseph.
St. Joski'ii, Mo., May 0. The suicide
of Charley Ford was hailed here with joy
to-day, for the manner of Jesse James'
taking off has never been excused. The
house ou the hill where Jcs-e James was
assassinated by Hob Ford a little over a
year ago, does not look like the place it
did when national attention was drawn
to it. Mrs. Saltzmati, the owner of the
property, was compelled to take up her
residence there to watch it from relic
hunters. Acting upou the suggestion of
a friend, a register was provided and an
admission lee charged. The old
lady has received lu gate fees
alone Sl.ouo, and fully as much
more for the sale of relics. She has used
most of it to improve the place. Her
daughter, a pretty girl of fourteen, points
out the several positions occupied by the
chief actors iu the tragedy, concluding
with the request that you register your
name. This list Is remarkable; It In
cludes the names of statesmen, actors,
editors, artists, capitalists, professors
and divines. Among them are those of
Jay Gould, A. A. Talmage, Etuina Ab
bott, Fanny Davenport, John McCul
lougli, Fred Warde, Colonel Burleigh,
Uev. Miln, Anna Dickinson, Kobson and
Crane, Mary Anderson, Maggie Mitchell,
Joe Murphy, Governor Crittenden, Sena

The Ford Brothers played their last en
gagement iu St. Louis January L'sth, lu
Howards' Theater, Fourth street. They
then retired to Kansas City, Mo., where
they have been cugaged iu the livery
business, trying iu vain to organize an
other "Bandit troupe." Manager Ed
wards says that Charley Ford lately wrote
to him for au engagement, but he refused.
"These two fellows were the sorriest lot
I ever put on the stage," he added, "and
they were exhibited "only as curiosities.
They were murderers of
TIIK MEANEST CLASS.
Since their last tour uo manager would
play them. 1 was thinking of writing to
Governor Crittenden to turn out another
lot of murderers that would draw better.
Charley Ford was about twenty-six years
Did and consumptive."
TIIK ItKOTIIK.lts' cm Ml'.
Although Charley Ford did not fire tho
shot which killed Jesse James, he Is just
is much his murderer as his brother Bob,
tvho tired tho shot. Both were members
ol the bandit gang, and were enjoying
lesse's hospitality at St. Joseph for
weeks before the murder, waiting for au
opportunity to assassinate him In the
back. So quick was the head of tho no
torious gang with his weapon that cot
eveu the money offered them by Governor
Crittenden could induce them to attempt
the murder where there was tho slightest
chance of his resisting. When the oppor
tunity came aud Jesse, having previously
laid aside his pistols, turned his back,
both drew their pistols, but Kobert tired
3rst, and his shot proved lustantly fatal.

St. Locis, Mo., May 6. Last night

Morrison Tariff Bill In
The Democratic Champion of Protectioi
Draws His Sword For the Final
Lesser Lights Let Their Glims Shine Upot
the Much-Ventilated Subject
Washington, d. c, May C The
reading of the journal was quickly
concluded and the House went Into com
mittee of the whole for the last day's gen
eral debate on the tariff bill. A largo num
ber of absent members have returned and
tho seats are more geuerally tilled than at
any time since the early days of the ses
sion in December. The galleries are
crowded and much Interest is manifested
on the floor.
Mr. Brown (of Pa.) was first recog
nized and made a speech favoring tho pro
tective system. He was followed by
Townsheud (of 111.) in a radical speech on
the other side.
Mr. Gibson (of W. Va.) said he would
sustain the bill, hoping it would be
amended by the House.
When Mr. Randall rose the members
fairly ruhed forward aud surrounded his
Mr. Taylor Cof Ohio) rose to a point of
order and said: "If all kept their seats
they could all hear, but If permitted to
crowd around the orator, but a few would
be able to hear." The Chair required that
all be seated.
Mr. Randall then proceeded amid un
usually good order. He opened with a
quotation from Lord Chatham, that
capital was timid of any legislation,
and that to destroy confidence
was not only a blunder but a crime.
Great Britain, he said, had during the
late war sought every means to cripple
this country, and having failed, It now
sought to coax us into free trade. In her
avarice she held in her Iron grip Gibraltar
and commanded the Suez Canal, while
she compelled millions of Chinese to
swallow her opium.
He denounced the constant tinkering
with the tariff, leaving apprehensions that
no tariff could last longer than from one
Congress to another. Such a course, he
declared, was murderous and suicidal.
He next proceeded to review the more
recent action of Congress on the tariff.
He said that after the last change time
enough had not elapsed to ascer
tain the results, or for the various Indus
tries to accommodate themselves to it,
before a new measure is proposed,
which, although Impossible to pass, with
a Republican Senate and a Republi
can Executive, at the present
session, had caused much in
quiry by Its agitation. He criticised
the horizontal feature of tho bill, and
declared its introduction was to produce
agitation for the sake of agitation, which
was universal. It wasn't so much the
twenty per cent reduction as its prom
ise. It had been declared as a
step towards free trade. He quoted
Dorshelmer who said, "If this didn't
-educe the revenue, it would cut to
the quick and draw blood. If twenty
per ceut does not answer 1 would re
duce it tlfty percent." j
The California delegation In the House
was reported equally divided ou the tariff
bill, making a gain of oue for it.
Mr. Stephens (of New York), who
voted against taking up the bill is re
ported as against strikiug out the enact
Charles II. Tweed, attorney, was grant
ed a heariug by tho House Committee on
Public Lauds this moruing In behalf of
tlie Southern Pacific Railroad land grants
Mr. Randall's desk was decorated this
morulug with a beautiful basket of flow
ers, iutended as a compliment for his
speech soon to be made, or for the pros
pective victory on the tariff bill.
The Committee on Commerce this
morning discussed the form of the pro
posed International bill of lading. Rep
resentatives of the leading shipping in
terests of the country were heard iu sup
port of the measure.
On the other side, Messrs. Jordan, Lc
fevre and Seney (of Ohio), are said now
to favor the striking out of the enacting
clause, making a net gain of one against
the bill, and jeavlng the probable vote
based on that of April loth, with tho
changes noted, at ltiti against lotf ou
striking out the enacting clause. The
friends of the bill, however, claim that
they have from three to Hve majority
against the motion to strike out.
FOKEIGX NEWS, i
London, May C Iu an Interview with
Michael Davltt In regard to the report
that he Is about to take up his residence
in Australia, ho said: "I havo uo iuten
tiou of permanently residing in Australia,
but I am going there on a lecturing tour.
I expect before I return to Ireland to

every reason to believe the tour will be

have expressed the desire of presenting
him before his departure with some tes
timonial of appreciation of his services
rendered the Irish people lu their war
against the landlords and of regard for
his many good qualities; but he politely
requested them to desist from such man
ifestations of friendship, stating that the
only testintonal he desired was their good
wishes, which he felt ho would carry
with him. Several intituato friends want
Davltt to stand for Parliament, pledging
that If ho would do so all their lulluenco

London, May . The sensation caused
by tho withdrawal of Lord Raudolt
Churchill continues. The facts regard
ing the dilllculty aro now learned to have
been as follows: Churchill, after becom
ing chairman of tho Conservative Uuton
Association, slighted and ignored the
MarqtrU of Salisbury's Central Conserva
tive Committee. He chvltued the council
of the Union had coat of tho entire
Conservative party, and. tt fcad become a
caucus. He appointed an executive
committee, consisting of hlmserf,
Mr. Gorst and Sir Henry Drum
inond Wolff. The association, how
ever, adopted a resolution that the Coun
cil and Central Committee should work
in harmony. Churchill looking upon
this as a voto of censure, retired fm
tho associa.ion. Tho correspondence
between Churchill and Salisbury Is so
acrimonious that a reconciliation Is Im
probable. TO RESCUE DALY.

Polishing: the Wrong End.
Many men daily polish their boots who
never give a thought to the condition of
their hair, except to harrow it casually with

mental anxiety, or any of a score of causes,

to fall out. Parker's Hair Balsam will at
once stop tho latter process and restore the
original color. Au elegant dressing, free
