Ing beaten into Insensibility by two men,
one of whom had been sent with the boy
to protect him and the firm's money.
Detectives are searching for the rob
bers. The messenger is in the hospital
at Cie point ot death. He la Chris
dchults, a 17-year-old lad who was the
messenger of the firm. One of the rob
bers was Edward Wilson, employed by
the firm as a teamster. The other as
sailant Is not known.
Both Schults and Wilson have been
In the employ of Kuh, Nathan Flsch
er for several years and were always
sent to the bank together, sometimes
with thousands of dollars at a time.
Schults and Wilson were sent to the
Metropolitan National bank to collect
13,500. Taking a light delievry wagon
the two drove to the bank, where Schults
procured the money, which he put in a
small sachel. The two men then start
ed back. In front of the Rock Island
station a stranger called to Wilson and
after a few words of greeting got Into
the covered wagon, taking a position di
rectly behind Schults, who was on the
seat with Wilson.
Suddenly Schults was struck a blow
on the head and before he could cry out
he was struck a second and third time
and fell back unconscious Into the wag'
on. The two men then tied his wrists,
put a gag in his mouth and tied a gun
nysack over his head. They then drove
rapidly to Twelfth street, where they
stopped, ana taking the sachel contain'

latter branch is over the Datrymple

reported adversely upon the flat 2-cent

Washington, April 3. The Republi
can members of the senate committee
on finance are continuing their work
day and night on the tariff bill with
the intention of reporting it to the sen
ate at the earliest possible day. They
are not yet prepared to give out any
of the results of their Investigations
and say when approached upon the sub
ject that they have not as yet reached
any conclusions upon any schedules of
the bill. There is, however, a well de
fined Impression about the senate that
the bill will be generally remodeled and
the rates considerably reduced in many
of the schedules. A member of the com
mittee Is quoted by another senator as
authority for the specific statement that
carpet duties will be cut There is also
a general belief among western sen
ators that there will be material
changes In the rates on wools, especial
ly on those of the third class.
Straggle Over Black Wool Byes. '
A strong effort will be made -to have
naphthazoline black placed upon the
dutiable list Representatives of other
wool blacks are now in the city and
have brought the matter to the atten
tion of the committee. They call at
tention to the fact that this product is
not an elizarin, and say that it la un
justly so classified. The ways and
means committee of the house original
ly agreed to leave it out of the dutiable
list and place it with other coal tar
dyes, but changed their minds the last
day the bill was before the house. The
Incident has brought out a vigorous
protest from persons Interested In other
blacks, say that the napthazarine
patent Is owned by a foreign house;
that it will give to this establishment
a monopoly, and will deprive the gov
ernment of 3500,000 revenue annually.
Other Changes That Are Urged.
Among other suggestions which have
been urged upon the committee are
the following: A return to the Wilson
law of 8 cents a pound duty cn hops.
Instead of the 15 cents provided by the
Dlngley bill. It is claimed that the
proposed Increase will be an Injury
rather than a benefit to the producer
and a hardship to the consumer. A
uniform rate on all imported tobacco
suitable for cigar purposes. It is as
serted that the enactment ot the Ding-
ley rates into law would result in
throwing 300,000 clgarmakers out of em
ployment A reduction of the rate on
gold leaf, silver leaf, aluminium leaf.
and composition or Dutch metal. A re
duction on the rate of 10 cents a pound
on gum chicle, the basis of pure chew
ing gum. Some of the manufacturers
urge that this article should be made
free because it is, they say, "the poor
Contention Abont the Lumber Schedule.
There Is also much contention about
the lumber schedule, as there is about
many other schedules. The American
lumbermen interested in Canadian for
ests appear to be especially concerned
over the Dlngley rates. The committee
is not receiving any verbal statements
except from senators, but it is glvng
close attention to type-written presenta
tions of fact and argument Few prom
ises are being made even to senators.
There is, therefore, no basis for any
but the most general prediction as to
the fate of the bill at the hands of the
CABINET DISCUSSES FORESTRY.
Communion on Tha SnbJeet Called In
Washington to Talk with the Major.
Washington. April 3.-At the rahlnet
meeting yesterday the subject of forest
reservations was the one discussed, and
the discussion at times was very vigor
ous, and all the members took part The
outcome was Instructions that the na
tional forestry commission be summoned
to Washington to talk over their work
with the president It Is understood that
the sentiment was unanimous that Pres-

Ident Cleveland's proclamation waa too
comprehensive, and it-was stated that
the object of the commission which in
vestigated the subject and on whose re
port the reservations were proclaimed,
was to take in "enough" territory to
preclude the possible future claim that
any land legitimately deserving or re
quiring reservation had been omitted.
The cabinet held that the commission's
investigation was Inadequate. The pres
ident announced his purpose to act on
conservative lines and not to act with
out more information. Secretary Bliss
led the discussion and submitted notes
of the contentions of western senators
who protested against the order. The
amendment to legislation now pending
authorising a survey of the tracts thus
set apart and appropriating money for
the work was carefully, reviewed, and it
was decided that no ; action should be
taken pending such a survey of the re
The general opinion of the cabinet
was that the amendment would be made
law early next week, and it was deter
mined that surveying work should he
begun immediately upon the amend
ment becoming law, and the reports
of the survey expedited to the end that
any defects should be promptly rem
edied. As at present determined the
forestry proclamation will not be re
voked, but the provisions adjusted by
presidential orders as to specific tracts.
WTXX COMPLY WITH THE BIIX
Bat Do It T7ndrr a Section of Law That Is
oa the Bonks.
Washington, April 1 Secretary Gage
yesterday announced that he had de
cided to comply with the requirements
of section 27 of the pending tariff bill
providing for the retention of samples
of merchandise imported under orders
given subsequent to April 1, and which
were not purchased and directed by the
owner to be shipped for Import Into the
United States prior to April L This ac
tion, however, will be taken under sec
tion 249 of the revised statutes, which
authorizes the secretary to exercise su
perintendence over the collection of cus
toms duties. It Is the opinion ot Secre
tary Gage and Assistant Secretary How
ell that no insurmountable difficulties will
be encountered in the administration of
this feature of the tariff bilL
There can be no difficulty. It is said,
as to articles which are to pay a speci
fic duty, and as the whole tariff bill was
framed with a general view to specific
rather than ad valorem duties a large
proportion of the dutiable articles will
be disposed of without the necessity of
retaining samples. In some special cases
where the retention of samples would
obviously work hardship to the impor
ters, such as a large and miscellaneous
invoice of furniture, it Is thought that
this requirement may be waived on a
clear stipulation as to character and
value. The new regulations probably
will be promulgated today.
