WITH THE STEERING COMMITTEE. Whatever That Important Body Deoidae Upon Will Be Given the Right of Way. Washingltn, Dec. 9.-The week's pro rramme in the senate will depend large ly, if not enllrely, upon tihe deeisluni ot the democratlc steering committee with reference to the order in which the bills preferred by the demecratic, caucus are to be taken up. This point was hl.ft entirely to the steering committee, which Sen&tor Morgan, its chairman. says will probably meet Monday. The committee will then, or at some sub)e quent meeting, decide whether the Nic aragua bill, the bankruptcy bill, the New Mexico and Arisona bills, the In dian Territory bill, or the resolution for the election of senators by the people shall have precedence. It is not supposed by any one that the currency bill will be liven first place, for the reason that no currency bill tian yet beell formulated. Friends of the other bills will unquestionably press their respective measures, and It ins im poslble to say which of the bills will receive preference. "'While the comnllt. tee is undecided, Henator Morgan will be improving his opportunity to press the claims of the Nicaragua bill. iHe has given notice of his intention to call the Will up on Monday, and he will open the proceedings, after the disposal of morning busliness, with a speech de voted to an explanation of the merits of the bill. It is probable this speech will consume the greater part of the day. Morgan will speak regardless of what the caucus committee decision may be, or whether there shall be any decision previous to Monday afternoon. The speech made, the decision of the com mittee will probably be allowed to con trol as to whether the canal bill shall continue to receive attention or shall be deposed by one of the othere favored Imeasures. For the rest, Senator Morrill has given notice of intention to present, as is his usual custom at the beginning of a congressional session, his views on some public question, generally, as this year, related to national finances. Sen ator Hunton, of Virginia, has also given notice of a speech for Thursday on the establishment of a national uni verSty. It is also considered probable that there will be some executive work during the week, especially if the Japy anese treaty should be reported. The second week of the session of the house promises to witness a fierce strug gle over the Income tax, in connection with the appropriation to be incorpor. ated in the urgency deficiency bill Sayers, chairman of the appro rlatlon committee, intends to call up the bill on Tuesday. Mr. Bartlett, of New York is at the head of the opposition, and although the opposition is not consid. ered strong enough to defeat the appro. priation, it is expected that the debate will abound In acrimonious references to the late election, and that much bad blood will be manifested. To-morrow in District of tcolumbls day, and Tuesday the fate of the pool. InK bill will be decided. The general opinion Is that the bill will not pass as reported, but will probably carry when amended no as to give to the In terstate commission absolute control on the conditions of railroad pooling and final authority in the matter of revok ing pooling orders. As soon as the ur gency deficletrcy bill, which will follow, Is out of the way. It in the intention of the appropriatlol, committee to bring forward the fortificttion appropriation bill.

There was a festal gath ering at noon at Singacademle, at which Prof. Treltschke, the historian, delivered an address on the career nt Gustavus Adolphus. The Swedish min later and staff were present. Similar celebrations were held In all the larger German cities. Throughout the grand duche of Base-Weldmar-Eissenach, the day was kept as a national festival. Last night a torch light precession. con sisting of members of the various so cletles of the town o' Puetren, marched through the pranelpat streets out to Hchweldenstein, a memorial erected at the spot where the king fell on the bat tlefield 262 years ago. Early this morning the Inhabitants were aroused from their sleep by her alds who made It officially known that the day of celebration had arrived.

In the evening a bhanquet was given in the grand hall of the Red Lion. LAIBOR PLA TFORN . Forecast of One Likely to Be Adopted at Denver. Denver. Dec. 9.-Nearly all the dele gates have arrived to attend the con vention of the American Federation of Labor, which opens to-morrow. John Burns, member of parliament; Samuel Gompers, president of the federation; Richard Holmes, of England, and T. J. Maguire arrived this morning. Not withstanding the delegates to the con vention profe.s all ignorance as to the adoption of a resolution favoring the free coinage of silver, it is very prob able such a resolution will be intro duced, and that It will meet with but very little opposition. On the question of Immigration some decided views are expected from the convention. They will probably be in the shape of a resolution asking con gress to limit all foreign immigration to this country for a number of years, but beyond doubt the principal business bIefore the delegates V~11 be the adop tion of a political platform. As rl haslI for such matter, the following pro gramme, made by the different trades assemblies of Great BIltain. has been recommended for consideration. "Compulsory education: direct leIcl lation; legal eight-hour woskday: sani tary inspectlon of workshop, mine and home; liability of employers for injury to health, body or life; aiholitlon of the swealing system; munlelipal ownlership of street ears amd gas and lectrlic plants for tlh publc dlistributionl of IHght. heiat and powert nationalllzat on of telegrlaphns, telephones, railroads llnd mines: thie principle of re.ferendlum in all legislation."

Illxt Itld ,of his first cronversartionlr with Hayward, abult a month before tIh murd~.r. It waIs in regu ird to elthe.r the holding up or killing of a Chhkagc man who had luned Iltyward $400, the obiject being to regalin piossenUlon of any paper whihh th" manl might have as e.vildence of Itayward's lndebtelnetss. IllIxt's igno ranre prtrvents him front giving an in telligible account of just what the tratn acit. n was to be,further than that thore, was to be a hold up or murder. Hay ward proposed to send lHixt to Chhitgo and have him return from that city whern he was wantedl. ilIxt refused to go into it, and says that Hlayward went t,) ,' i ro.,... h, m..l.., I'lHo returning from Chicago, IHay ward broached another scheme to him, that of netting fire to a burn. He In duced lh1lxt to commit the act, thus se curing a penitentiary hold on the man. It was shortly after this that the scheme to murder Miss (ling was broached. Hayward told him she was completely in his power. and that she would do anything he told her to. When the scheme of killing her was mention ed. Hayward told him that by killing her he would regain posseslion of $7, 000 which he had given her, and in addl tton would make $10.000; as she had willed her life insurance to him. He offered Blixt one-fifth of the amount itf he would commit the deed. Blixt still refused to have anything to do with the crime and threatened to quit then and there, whereupon Hayward stated that he would do it himself, saying: "I would as soon kill her as I would a dog." This was about a week ago. In his confession Hlixt makes no ref erence to the ride Miss (ling took Nov. 27. Hayward's first plan, after he con cluded to commit the crime himself, wa outlined to Blixt. There was in the basement a T rail about two feet In length. Hayward directed the Jani tor to cut this in two, stating that he would take Mies (ling riding and no one would see hm with her. After he struck her over the head with the iron bari which hey would carry conceased unber his coat. he then Intended to throw the body out of the buggy against the curbstode, start the hor-se on a gallop, and then tell a story of a runaway accident. He calculated the twdy would appear to have been thrown from the buggy when it collided with On Monday night Hayward met Bllxt and by threats and persuasions and prmlises of money induced him to be a pairtner In the crime to the extent of aiding In disposing of the body and make it easy for Hayward to commit the crime and return unobserved into the city. Hayward directed Bllxt to proceed at 7:50 p. m. to the point on the Excelsior road where the body was found, and there' to await his coming. HIllxt followed out his Instructions toj the letter. He had been at the point designated about five minutes when he heard a shot and saw a carriage ap proaching. As it drew up he recognized Hayward as the driver. Hayward said to him: "It's all done. Jump in and (ldrive back slowly and give me plenty of time to get hack to town, and do not leave her until you make sure she is dead." llayward got out of the buggy and Ilhixt got in. Blixt did not look at the woman and the only way that he in ferred that she was dead was becatnuse sihe did not move. Hit' drn,\ up Ex celsior road, then alighting. sturted the horse And took a street car into thlt' city. The horse, lie says, started oi. slowly and then broke Into a trot. Hay ward arrived at Ozark flats at 7:,0 and at 7:45 was at the lhouse of t'. J. Hartel son, from where he took Miss ularteclaon to the theater. Se've'ral hours after having made the above coInfetssOI Itlixt called the mayor aluid chief of paI)lt's to his cell and said heli' redt the fatal shot himself. He thi'n went on io tell that Hlayward had per' suiided Miss logig that gree'n goods oiould easily be circulated through the lnt diluni of her businlle.ss as dre'sstnakl'r.

He told Sheriff t'aldwell of the story, and the sheriff made an effort to find the desperado. without success. The Hoseman man was so convinced that he had seen Gay that he refused to necon pany the officers In their search, as he was afraid to do so. There is a state reward of $210, and a county reward of $r50 for (lay, and an equal amount upon (ross. As soon as Sheriff O'Marr can get to Helena he wll undoubtedly secure a re qulsition from Gov. Rickards for Gay. and leave as early as possible for the noted desperado, who will probably have his trial for murder in the Meagher county district court.

About oe'year ago the Kalispell rol ler mill, with a capacity of 125 barrels of flour per day, was ereoted and has been steadily In operation ever iance. The flour manufactured is equal to any in the world, and here the rancher finds a ready market for his produa~ whie finda its way from the mill to other me tlona of the itate at the rate of two car loads per day, to.take the pl..e ef the far-famed number one hard wheat ef Minnesota and Dakota. There is, in all probabllit, no Iowa in the west of Its sise that Is in a better condition to-day, or has a brighter fut ure, than Kalispell. the metropolis of the Flathead country. Handsome trame and brick reeidences and brick bueiness blocks are now in course of construc tlon and will be completed next spring. The new brick high erhool buflding is about completed. It Is situated In the heart of the residence portion of the townt and would be a credit to any city ten times the sle of Kallspell. Its sew erage system Is not only oomplete. but perfect, and its broad and well .id out streets are being macadamisaed, and will soon tbe In the most perfect condi tion. In addition to its natural advan tages and surroundings.
