perado, who a few nights jigo at Dillon's

and dangerously wounded .Detective Bob

been charged with Btealing"and when the
above named oflicers attempted to arrest
him he drew a revolver nnd fired upon
them, killing Mr. Webster instantly. Al?
though Mr. Dillard was badly wounded by
tho negro he returned the negro's fire and
thinks he wounded Gibson,who, however,
made his escape and Is thought to be hid?
ing in this city or vicinity. Excitement
runs high In Franklin county and if
caught the chances are that Gibson will
never bo tried by any other than Judge
Lynch. In connection witli the above.

Havana, June 1.?W. J. Calhonn, the
ex-United Suites commissioner who is in?
vestigating the death in the prison at
Gunnabacoa of Dr. Ricardo Ruiz, a natu?
ralized American citizen, was interviewed
to-day with rofereuce to the article iu the
Diario de la Marina, making an indirect
attack upon the commissioner by criti?
cising articles which have appeared in a
.Washington newspaper ;over the signa
'turb of Mr. Pepper, who accompanied
Mr. Calboun to Cuba. Mr. Calhoun said:
"Mr. Pepper is in no way connected
with the commission. On the contrary,
ho came to Havana on his own account,
at other correspondents might have come.
"No secrets of the commission have
been divulged, nor has any special infor?

MR."REED NOT DISTURBED. -
The Speaker Not Worried by Senator
Washington, June 1.?The point made
by Senator Morgan in the Senate that the
ptesent proceedings iu the House under
the. rule for semi-weekly sessions with its
adjournments for three days are uncon?
stitutional is giving some anxiety to some
of the Republican leaders.
The question was discussed to-day by
several Republican members of the ways
and means committee, who were in the
committee room, and two of them ex?
pressed the opinion that Senator Mor?
gan's views might prove to be correct.
The* possibility that importers may stir
up litigation over tho tariff bill after it
becomes a law, following "the suggestion
by Senator Morgan that Congress wou'd
not be legally in session when the Senate
passes the bill, is viewed with some ap?
prehension by a minority of the commit
tee, though not by Mr. Dingley.
Speaker Reed, it is understood, does,
net in the least share the apprehension of
those who think there is something in the
point, aud believes that the House can fix
tho days of its adjournment.
It is pointed out that on the occasion
when Senators desired to go to Monti
cello, Mr. Chandler,on Wednsdny. moved,
and the Senate adopted the motion,
that when the Sonate adjourn on Thurs?
day it be to meet on the following Mon?
day, that the whole objection made in the
Senate to the proceedings of the House
was covered in that order.
