Some ot Mr. Mills closo friends assert posl tlvcly that bo lias been tendered by tho Speaker mill has declined tho second plnceon tho Committee on Ways und Means, with tho chairmanship of another Important commit tee. Tho Speaker, feeling tnat tho matter is not proper for discussion at this juncture, de clines to say anything upon the subject, and Mr. Mills is equally reticeut at present, al though it may bo that tho correspoudenco will bo made public hereafter. It is quite certain that pressure is being brought to bear upon the Speaker by persons not heretofore identi fied with Mr. Mills' aspirations to causo his nppointment to tho rthairmansblp of the Ways and Meaus Committee. As far as can bo learned, tho Speaker has not yet committed himself to tho appointment of any member to this chairmanship, and as Mr. Mills' reply to his tender is said to bo couched in such tennis as to warrant tho assumption that he would not reject the Dlace, the entire matter ap pears to be still subject to hurmonious ar rangement.

The following is the text of tho correspon dence between Speaker Crisp and Representa ive Mills in regard to the hitter's commtttee service! Speaker's Room, House or Representatives, Washington, D.

Having been a member of tho Committee on AVays and Means lor ten years and chairman in tho Fiftieth Congress, tlio reasons which have in j our judgment rendered my appoint ment as a chairman unwiso, would disqualify mo for service in anv other place on that, com mittee, and it would not bo sincere to say that it would bo uif reeablo to accept your tender. 1 leave to you, without any suggestion from me, to mako such other assignment as you, in tho discharge of your official duty, raav deter mine.

A notable gathering of Republican leaders from all over tho West took placo to-day at tho Grand Pacific. What was dono at a secret conference which lasted from morning till ovoning is best known to thbse who wcro present, but thoy are very reticent.

JUDGE BLODGETT TO RESIGN. Another United State JudceHhlp for tho President to 1111. CniCAGO, Dec. 19. President Harrison will probably be called on to fill u vacancy on the Federal District Court bench for Northern Illinois as well as that left vacant by the pro motion of Judge Woods, of Indiana. "It has been sugeested to mo by gentlemen interested in tho projected life insurance com pany that I could have tbo presidency of tho company if tho project went, through," Bald Judge Blodgett to-day, "and I have decided to accept tlio proposition provided sufficient money Is raised to organize the company. Nothing he i as yet been definitely decided upuL and. t Is merely in the air, as it were, that tho company will be organized. If it is organized and everything is satisfactory to me I shall resign from the bench to accept the position." Tbo now company with waich the judge Is said to be willing to cast his fortunes is the Illinois Insurance Company, which waB re cently organized with a capital stock of $1,000,000 and incorporated by a number of well-known and wealtby men, so that there seems to be little doubt that it will soon begin business with Judge Blodgett at its head. . . . SHOT HER WEARY LiOVEU. A Thrilling Tragedy In a Philadelphia Railway Station. Philadelphia, Dec. 19. Mrs. Josephine Smith, 25 years old, of 419 North Thirty-third street, this afternoon shot and instantly killed in the Poweltou Avenue Station of the Penn sylvania Railroad, John Hobbs, of 31G2 Bar ing street. Tho woman was at onso arrested, taken before a magistrate and committed to prison by him to await the action of tho coro ner. As yot tho police have been unable to discover tho cause that induced tho woman to kill Hobbs, but tho supposition is that they had been intimate and that Hobbs was weary of her. Tho couple were first noticed stand ing together this afternoon at the corner of Thirty-first and Spring Garden streets. For fully an hour thoy stood upon tho corner en gaged in conversation, and from their de meauor were ovideutly quarreling. Finally Hobbs left tho woman and walked a square down Thirty-first 6treet to Poweltou Avenue Station. Mrs. Smith followed him and the quarrel was renewed in tho station. As Hobbs was about lo step from tho platform upon tho steps of a train, the woman drew a revolver and shot him in tho back of tho head. Tho bullet pierced his brain and ho foil, dying almost Instantly. After the shooting tho womau coolly handed her revolver over to an officer, and without any remark accompanied him to tho station-house. Whon brought be fore a magistrate she declined to mako any statement regarding tho shooting. Mrs. Smith's maiden name was Malllson, and sho was tho daughter of a wealthy mill owner of tho city. Some four years ago sho gained considerable notoriety by running away with and marrying a pln'enologtet and fortune-teller known as "Prof." James, but whoso real name was William James Smith. Mrs. Smith lived with her husband but a short time. Since leaving him she has only seen him at long intervals, Telegraphic lirlefti. Judge Tourgeo is likely to recover from tho grip.

THE SILVER QUESTION IS OF LITTLE IMMEDIATE INTEREST. Upon Developments at Washington De pond Gormany'n and England's Ac tionAmerican Acent Sellgman Wa no Informed by tho Gormnn Clinnoellor Copyright by Now York Associated Press. Berlin, Dec. 19. The debates in the Reich stag have disclosed the weakness of tho sup porters of be-inctali&m. Count Merbach and Baron KardoriT alluded to tho question of tho remonctization of silver as intimately connected with the grain tariffs, but tho house concurred in the opinion ex pressed by Chancellor von Caprlvl, who said it was superfluous to discuss the topic. The attitude of tho Government upon tho question of bi-metallRin continues one.of wait ing. Whcu Mr. William Seligman, who was sent to Europe as u representative of tho United States Treasury Department for the purpose of arranging for the uolding of an in ternational conference to secuio the establish ment of a common ratio of value between gold and silver, was hero sounding tho Gov ernment, Chancellor von Caprlvi stated that the action of Germany and England would depend upon the currency developments at Washington. Herr Mlquel, the Imperial Minister of Finance, is a 6trong gold partisan. Secretary Von Marshall, although a strong bl-metalllst, will only act conjointly with England for the discussion of tho subject. As no movement, has been taken by England in the meantime it Is probable that tho Government is disposed to consider the silver question as one of little immediate interest. The resumption of specie payments In Austria-Hungary on a gold basis is deported to be imminent. The treasury already holds 150,000,000 florins in gold, and tho total amount required to effect the resumption is 250,000,000. A part of this sum can bo met by the retention by tho Government of a por tion of the notes now in circulation. STARTLING ALLEGATIONS In Suits to Prevent tho Consummation of tho "Big Throe" Contract. H V,Chicago, Dec. 19. Tho Supremo Couj;t of New Jersey "had rendered a decision sustain ing tho action of the directors of tho United States Yards Company, of this city, in grant ing certain commissions to tbo big pack ersArmour, Swift, and Morris, in return for which tho latter agreed to remain where they are instead of moving to Tollestcn, as thoy were preparing to do. This decision settles for once and all the con troversy between the stockyards and tho large packers. Immediately after the rendition ot the de clon steps were taken to consummate tho contract, but barely had tho decree been ren dered when fourteen new suits were insti tuted. Chancellor MeGill, of New Jersey, to-day re-entered an enjoining order restrain ing tho parties to tho contract from consum mating it. Tho new 6ults make startlluc al legations and promise to develop a revelation In tho administration of Now Jersey justice.

The view taken iu offi cial circlcshere of the quarrel between Franco and Bulgaria, arising out of tho refusal of the authorities of tho latter country to allow a journalist named Chadouine, who was recently expelled from Bulgaria, to return, is that it will result in mischief. A dispatch was received yesterday evening from tbo German embassy at Constantinople containing the substance of the protest made to tho Grand Vizier by M. Cainbon, thoFronch Ambassador at Constantinople, in which M. Rlbot, the French Foreign Minister, accuses the Bulgarian Government, besido tho Illegal expulsion of M. Clmdoulnc, with insulting tho French agent, M. Leuel, by setting a po lice watch upon his tesideucc and, upon one occasion, with arresting M. Lenel himself by mistake, as the agent was entering his offices. M. Leuel appears" to have been suspected of secretly giving assistance to the Russo-Bulga-rians Who wcie implicated iu military plots against the Government. M. Rlbot contends that Bulgaria, under the capitulations of tho Berlin treaty, ought to have applied to M. Leuel for permission to arrest M. Chadouine, and that tho Porto must now insist that Bulgaria Bhall npolonizo and rescind the order of expulsion issued against M. Chadouine, and thus wipe out by a public, official recognition tho Insult to tho French agent. Tho Grand Vizier immediately upon receipt of the protest communicated with tho government at Sofia and received a prompt roplv. In this answer the authorities at Sofia expressed regret that the incident had arisen, but declared tlint thoy would adhere to their right to expel M. Chadouine. Tbo Bulgarian agent at Constantinople, in communications addressed to tho German and Austrian embaesies, couched In tho most cordial terms, asserts that his government has strong proof that tho French residency has been made the focus of plots against M. Stambuloff, tho Bulgarian Prime Minister. Tho expulsion of M. Chadouine is but a minor accident among frequent collisions be tween M. Lenel and tho Bulgarian Ministers. In relation to tho question of a breach of the capitulations of the Berlin treaty, tho opinion expressed in diplomatic circles is entirely against M. Ribot. It is not expected that tho French Foreign Minister will venture to refer the dispute to the Berlin treaty powers. Ho will probably bully Bulgaria in order to please Russia and keep the quarrel standing open until an op portune moment shall arrive for tho begin ning of active hostilities.
