Gallatin-, Mo., Dec. 1. With one sweep
of a large, sharp butcher knife John
Hright, yesterday, almost decapitated his
boy Albert, at his homo near this
city. He then made an attack on his
wife, who escaped, and locked herself in
a room. With maniacal rage the
murderer rushed from the house and at
tempted to kill John Hurk, a farm-hand,
who saved his lifo by flight. Bright then
started for town, saying there were several
of his enemies there, and he would get even
with them. The alarm was given and he
was stopped by the marshal, but instead of
giving himself np, he made an attack
on tho officer with his knife, and cut
him in the arm. He then made a dash
throueh the streets, and chastd everybody
that came in sight. As it was impossible
for any one to get near him, he was shot as
he was chasing a lot of children, and so
badly wounded that ho was captured.
Hright was released from an insane asylum
recently as cured.

How the Chairmanships Will lie Apportioned
by Mr. Iteed Friends to He Rewarded.
fecial to the TnUaiiaooU Journal.
Washington, Dec. 1. Now that the
speakership fight is over, interest natural
ly turns to the disposition that Mr. Keed
will make of tho important chairmanships
at his disposal; in other words, how ho will
reward those who have worked for him
early and late. He will bo greatly assisted
in this matter by tho fact that the ballot
ing was open. He knows exactly who
voted for him on the first ballot, and
who on the second. He knows
who staid by him from the first and who
the gentlemen are who climbed on his
wagon when they saw that his was the
winning team. . Of course his late
opponents . will come in for the
first consideration. Mr. McKinley,
as already stated in theso dispatches, must
bo tendered the chairmanship of the com
mittee on ways and means. Thero is a
general belief that Mr. McKinley, recog
nizing already what the venerable Father
Kelley has done, or claims to have done for
him, will prefer that the chairmanship of
that committee be tendered to Mr. Kelley
instead of to him. At tho same time it must
be said that Mr. McKinley, very diplo
matically, warded off any pledge in that
direction by saying that a3 the committee
ship had not yet been offered to
him, he could not say that he
would decline it in favor of
Mr. Kelley. Mr. Cannon, of course, gets
oppropriations. As for Colonel Henderson,
of Iowa, ho will likely remain on appropria
tions. Mr. Hay no, of Pittsburg, will get
the chairmanship of rivers and harbors. It
is said Mr. Hurrows will probably perfer to
remain on the ways and means.
Harry liingham. former postmaster of
Philadelphia, has been active enough in
Mr. Heed's behalf to earn the chairmanship
of postollices and post-roads. Dorsey, of
Nebraska, will probably obtain banking
and currency. Cabot Lodge has been Mr.
Keed s right bower m the tight, and has
been expecting the chairmanship of elec
tions, but Judge Kowell. of Illinois, will
probably get it. Payson. of Illinois,
will receive public lands; rerkms. of Kan
sas. Indian anairs: Uoutclle. of Maine.
naval atl'airs. and Dingley, of Maine, mer
chant marine and iishexits. Farquhar, of New
York, wanted this latter committee, but
Reed will probably not forget him for
breaking tho Heed-New York-Wheat com
bination, and practically electing Captain
Adams for Door-keeper, so that he will
probably not get that chairmanship. Mill
iken, of Maiue, will get public buildings
and gronnds. probably. McConias. of
Maryland, for some remarkable reason,
Beems io do anxious to leave nis present im
portant position on the appropriations com
mittee and tight for a chairmanship. The
uisinci commitieo is saiu to no nis
ambition. He may get it, and If
he does, will only hold it ono week he
fore he will believe what his friends now
tell hiru. that the power to appoint a
friend to clerkship on his committee is too
hig a pneo to pay for his leaving the most
important committee in the House.
Tho other chairmanships aro still in
doubt, and it will probably bo after the
holidays berore Mr. Keed will bo ablo to
aunounce his selections.
A Talk with Mr. Reed.
Cicl&l to the Imll&DapoUi Journal.
Washington, Dec. 1. Speaker Reed was
asked to-day by your correspondent if he
had any idea when his committees would
be announced. "It is impossible to tell,"
he answered in his 6low, deliberate way.
"I should think not for two weeks, and
perhaps longer. Mr. Carlisle took until tho
first of January, and I shall be doing well
if I am able to make np tho list in two
weeks. So far I have not been able to givo
the matter ono moment's consideration."
"Then you do not look for much business
to be done until after tho recess?"
"Hardly. If the committees aro appoint
ed in two weeks from now there will be
oly a few days left before the usual
Christmas recess is taken."
"Aro you likely to appoint the committee
on rules m advance ol the other commit
tees, so that the rules can be modified bc-
loro an attempt is made to do business?"
'I am not prepared to suy what may be
done, but it would not be surprising if the
committee on rules should bo appointed in
the course of a few days, so that the rules
could be revised while tho House is wait
ing for other business."
"Can you express any opinion on the prob
able course of legislation this winter!''
"It would not be politio tor me to do so.
and in addition to that 1 am not able to an
swer the question. This somewhat unne
cessary contest (and Mr. l.eed smiled at tho
recollection of the tight) has taken up.all

Washington, Dec. 1. One of the morn
ing papers announces that tho President
and Mrs. Harrison will leave for Chicago
on Friday night with Vice-president and
Mrs. Morton, Postmaster-general and Mrs.
Wanamaker. the Attorney-general and Mrs.
Miller, Assistant Postmaster-general and
Mrs. Clarkson. Mr. and Mrs. Halford.
Russell Harrison and some others, to attend
the opening of the Auditorium, but this is
1 learned at the White House lo-day that
tho President desires to w itness the open
ing off the Auditorium, and that his plan is
to have here next Friday, reach Indianap
olis Saturday, spend Sunday there, and
go to Chicago Monday morning, and that
lie hopes to have Mrs. Harrison accompany
him: out the very m rious illness of her sis
ter, Mrs. Lord, may prevent her from join
ing the party, and it is not unlikely that
the President himself will be prevented
from carrying out this plan for tue same
Mrs. Lord ii in a dangerous condition.
Both tho President and Mrs. Hamson were
up with her until betweeu 1 am. 2 o'clock
Friday night, and until after 12 o'clock
last night, and Mrs. Harrison has
scarcely left her bedside all
day. For several days it has
been feared that Mrs. Lord would not re
cover, and there is a great deal of anxiety
felt in the family as to ner condition. She
is, however, reported better to-night.
If the President does go to Chicago he
will be the guest of Mr. and Mrs. Ferd H.
Peck at their beautiful new home on Mich
igan avenue, and Mr. and Mrs. Clarkson
will accompany him. Perhaps the Attorney-general
and Mrs. Miller and Mrs. Hal
ford will go also, although that has not
been definitely decided.

Washington, Dec. 1. At tho Brazilian
legation in this city it is thought that Dom
Pedro will cstablishhisrosidence in France,
but it is not believed that he will make any
prolonged stay in ono place, the late Emper

not be surprised to see Dom Pedro make a
visit to the United States if his health
should improve, as he has a warm attach

friends here. To-morrow is his birthday,
when hewillbe sixty-four years of age.

is beloved by all. But though no friction

Minneapolis, Minn., Dec 1. All night
long the steamers threw water on the
burning and smoking ruins of what was
once the Tribune building. The force
that was on duty during the night was re
lieved by another and tho good work went
on unceasingly, A few spectators stood
around during the entire night, and as
6oou as light began to dawn iu the east
others came, so that as early as S o'clock
there was a considerable crowd on hand.
Dark and forbidding the walls of tho
wrecked building loomed up in the gray
light of early dawn, and as the spectators
gazed, tho awful tact that frenzied human
beings, half stilled with smoke and singed
with llainos, had but a few hours before
made the death plunge from the giddy
height to the hard, cruel 6tone pave
raent below, the scene seemed to dawn upon
them afresh with all of its terrible
force. As tho day advanced and the light
became more distinct, the completeness of
the wreck became more and more evident.
The upper floors had given way, and their
weight, together with the job presses and
heavy iron safes, bad carried all before it
into a confused mass in the basement.
Here and there an iron girder remained in
position, but so insecurely fixed that it ap
peared that but a slight jar would be re
quired to send it crashing to the bottom.
A few cf these girders were bent and
twisted out ot shape by the heat aud the
heavy masses that fell upon them from
It had been hoped that the solidity of the
first floor, supported as it was
by heavy iron posts nnd girders.
would support the overlying mass, and
thus protect the presses in the basement.
But an examination of the ruins proved
the probable delusiveness of this. hope.
Everything had given way before the
stupendous weight and the basement was
piled full of the heavy debris. The vaults
in tho newspaper offices appeared to be iu a
good condition, and unless tho heat was
too intense the contents will be found to
be in a good state of preservation. The
walls are cracked but little, and, in the
opinion of Chief Stetson, thero is no danger
of their falling.
Tho ruins probably drew a much larger
crowd to-day than did the churches.
It looked as though everybody bad
turned out to witness the terrible
work of the tire-fiend. This was
especially the case in tho afternoon, when
the sidewalks were lined with spectators
for some distanco from the building, and
the overflow found standing room in the
middle of the streets. The day was warm
enough for spring and tho melted snow.
together with the water thrown about by
the fire engines made a mixture, about the
consistency of mortar, on the sidewalks
and in the streets. Soiled and bedraggled
dresses were the order of the day, but
the ladies persisted in turning out.
It was a good-natured crowd, but an in
quisitive one withal, and to keep it back
wires were stretched across the streets and
a cordon of policemen employed.
The one question uppermost in the miads
of all was, "How many bodies are there
in the ruins?" It was a generally accepted
fact that bodies were buried beneath that
heterogeneous macs, but how many, no one
could tell. Chief Stetson and the other
members of the fire department appeared
to doubt whether all the inmates of the
bnilding had escaped. Chief of Police
Hrackett, who has handled many fires ia
the past, thought there could not bo over
two or three bodies buried in the ruins.
Careful inquiry failed to show that anxious
friends bad made inquiries for lost
ones. But one report of a missing
man could bo traced to a reliable
source. That came from Burke O'Brien,
who said a man who had worked for him
had disappeared, and be fea.-ed his body
would bo lound in tho ruins. The elevator
man. who was reported missing, turned up
safe and sound this afternoon.
Charles A. iMuith. the elevator man on
the night service, did very creditable work.
He was a new man. bavinsr only been in
the place since the first of tho week. After
the lire broke out he made five trips the
last when the shaft was actually ou fire
and saved a number of people. Smith says
he smelled lire for three-quarters of an
hour before he could find IU location. After
looking on all the lloers he finally felt
the beat on the third floor aud
was about to break in the door of the fate
ful room when the transom burst and the
flames sprung np. He is confident that the
fire originated in E. A. Harmon's office and
worked through two partitions bforo
breaking into the hallway, but this seems
well-nigh impossible Smith is sure that
more people were burned than have been
reported. He says that about five minutes
before the fire was discovered he carried a
heavy, dark-complexioned lady to the tdxth
floor. She asked for the editorial rooms of
the Pioneer Press. He did not take
her back in the elevator, and ho
is sure 6he could not have gone
down the stairway. Smith also says
that a tall young man, with a black mus
tache, shot himself, on the seventh floor,
near the composing-room dcor. Smith was
np on his last trip, and called to the young
man to come into the elevator, but be

deliberately drew a ro olver and fired into
his own head, falling, as Smith Runpo&es.
quite dead. Just before he lired tut shot
he exclaimed, "My (iod! My wife and
-,n then the bullet did its work.
Chief Stetson charges that the loss ot
life is due to the absence of proper fire
'escapes. Thero was some apparently
unaccountable delay iu turning in
the alarm for the fire department
on Saturday evening, and alter they
arrived on tbo ground it seemed to bo
a long time before they got to work.
This was a general cause .of comment by
the spectators. Iu an interview to-day
Chief Stetson talked as follows on the sub
ject: 4In the first place, there was some
unpardonable delay in sending in the
alarm. 1 had no knowledge that there was
a fire until it had made such headway that
it could not be checked. The man who
pulled the alarm ..box was so excited that
he did not - do it properly, and snt
. in a call for police Instead of tire.
This he did three times, as the record
at police headquarters, will show.
Fiually the proper alarm came in. and I
arrived ou the ground shortly after. I
took in the situation at once, and, attei
