Thomas Wormley, colored, testified that he witnessed the entire affair and did not leave until the wounded man hail been taken to the hospital. His statement wis that the bartender complained that Moore had not paid for a drink, and Moore, removing his hat, told Daly In order to get the lO cents he would have to kno< k him on the head and take it.

Moore said to Daly, "You done me wrong;" staggered to tiie door and fell. "Did Moore have a' knife?" the witness was asked. "Not that I saw." Bicycle Policeman McQuade of the sec ond precinct told of having been present at the hospital Friday when Assistant United States Attorney McXainara took the antemortem statement of Moore. Ante-Mortem Statement. "I think 1 am going to die. and feel awful bad. Tom Daly done it with an ice pick in the saloon. lolSi 7th street. Mr. Mike Daly owns the saloon. Tom said. *!f you call me a liar.' and then he stabbed me. I was standing by the bar. Me and Tom Daly were talking. I said, * You did not give me right whisky.* He said. *You are a liar." 1 said he was another, and he reached under the bar, got an ice pick and something with which he cuts lemons, a knife with a straight handle. He stabbed me in the chest once. After that he got a stick from behind the bar and struck me twice. I did not hit or raise my hand. I had no j weapon. My old knife was in my pocket, j 1 have no hope of living or recovery. I only went into the saloon to get a drink." Other persons who were in the saloon gave similar testimony. Drs. Creighton ami King of the Homeopathic Hospital told of the treatment given the patient. When he reached the hospital it was're ported lie had been shot, and Dr. King probed for a bullet. Moore seemed much better Thursday, but Friday there was a change for the worse, and death oc curred Saturday morning. It was stated that Moore was under the influence of liquor when he reached the hospital. Dr. L. W. Glazebrook. deputy coroner, explained that death was due to a slow hemorrhage, following tiie stab wound. Policeman Bennett identified a knife that was shown him by the coroner, say ing that he took it from the pocket of the wounded man's clothes while he was on the table in the emergency room at the hospital. ' "What became of the ice pick?" the coroner asked. "1 searched the barroom," Policeman McQuade saidf ,.l)Ut was unat,ie to rtnd it. Mr. Daly said he knocked it behind the bar, but J couldn't find it." IN LEAD AS TAX PRODUCERS THREE-FOURTHS OF REVENUE IS FROM TWELVE ARTICLES. But Different Rates for Various Articles Make the Fixing of Tariff a Complex Work. Three-fourths of the tariff duties col lected by the I'nited States government annually are paid by twelve articles or classes of articles. ? These are sugar, which in Y.*fl paid $?>n,00.),000 duty; cot ton manufactures, which paid, $39,000, ooo; leaf tobacco. $;?i,i>00,000; manufac tures of fibers, $<3.? >00.o00: manufactures of silk. $'ji,0u>,000; manufactures of wool, *j0.0n0,000: raw wool. $16,500,000: spirits, wines and malt liquors, $16,000,0t?0; man ufactures of iron and steel, $1;MX,0,000; ??arthen and china ware, $K,oOO,OtlO; chem icals. drugs and dyes* $7,."??)0.000, and fruits and nuts, J>7.4M?:i,ooo. The total amount paid by these twelve classes of articles in 11(07 was $?><>,000.000, which was three-fourths of the ?:>jy.OO'WKK> of tariff dtuies collected in that year. Further figures prepared by the bureau of statistics show that the share which customs duties have borne in producing the revenues of the country have varied with varying conditions, principally de pending on the changes from time to time in internal revenue laws. "it must not be supposed, however," says tiie report of tiie bureau of statis tics, "that iteiau.se a dozen articles or groups of articles pay three-fourths of the tariff duties collected, thai the mak ing of a tariff and the determination of rates of duty and Mie amount of revenue likely to result therefrom is by any means a simple matter. The rates of duties levied are not applied merely to groups of articles, as a whole, but apply at different rates, and in different terms to various grades and qualities of articles forming each group, and in many cases to the various grades of a material bear ing a single name. "Under the litle of cotton cloth, for instance, the rates of duty on cloths not exceeding fifty threads to the square inch, counting warp and tilling, are 1 cent per yard, if the material is not bleached, dyed or colored, but IVi cents per yard if bleached and - cents per yard if dyed, colored or printed. If the number of threads per square inch ex eeds 5o and does not exceed lOO. the rates are still higher-P, cents per square yard on that which is not bleached, dyed or col ored and does not exceed t> square yards to the pound, but lVj cents per square yard to the pound and 1% cents per Miqare yard if it exceeds 9 square yards to the pound; for that which is bleached still another rate obtains for the vari ous grades, and for that which is dyed or colored another and still higher rate."

Women Faint at Sight?Wild Uproar Follows. MADRID, April 26.-A brilliant day ended in a tragedy at the bull ring yes terday afternoon. Princess Louise of Orleans. Princess Maria del Pilar of Bavaria and the In fante Carlos were present in the royal box. There was a fair sprinkling of French and English visitors, mingled with thousands of spectators. The last bull had been in the ring for some time, when it suddenly took una wares the Mexican toreador, La Garti jilla. One of the bull's horns pierced his neck. Wild uproar started when the people saw the twenty-two-year-old toreador fall. As it became evident that La Garti jilla was terribly wounded, screams went up from many women about the arena, several of whom fainted. The bull was almost immediately turn ed away from the body, clad in its glitter ing costume, lying dead on the sand of the arena. There was one other toreador in the ring. This one was also a Mexican, named Gaona. who proved more fortu nate than his companion, and after a few clever passes gave the bull his deatli blow. Happily, Queen Victoria, who frequently attends the bull lights, was not present to witness the tragedy. To Explain Study of' Indian Music.

The Nationalists Threaten Revolt Against Khedive?Laxity in Ad ministration of Law Is Fault. Special Cablegram to The Stur. LONDON', April 26.?It Is clear that serious trouble will occur In Egypt unless the administration acts with lirmness, says the Cairo correspondent of the Standard. * For some time things have been going from bad to worse. The native press has pursued a course of sedition that has at length driven the government to reintro duce the press law of 18S1. Some idea of the condition of law and order in the country may be formed from the fact that 6.'J4 murders are known to have been committed during the first half of last year. It is expected that later statistics will show an increase. Fights between villages and families are common. One of these sanguinary encounters occurred recently where nine or ten dead and twenty or thirty wounded were left on the lield. Train wreckings sire frequent. Blood feuds -are common. There is practically no security in the country. The British, and not the Egyptians, are to bleme for this state of things. They have withheld punishment, when in com mon justice it should have been given. A new development of the situation is an attack by the nationalists on toe khedive, whom they accuse of caring more for making money than for nis country. Threats of revolt against him are freely made. For a long time men aware of the facts have tried to point out that the Egyptian understands being ruled, but only regards clemency as a sign of weak ness. Had absolute justtice and firm ness been employed from the Hist there would have been no need for press laws to be Invoked nor would outbreaks of crime be so common as they are at present. The Egyptian has been Encouraged by feeble and partial administration. Great Britain must assume her share of blame for a situation which may have to be dealt with under military law. Two riotous demonstrations took place this week. Some of the English regiments are standing to arms and all leave is canceled. COYLE WILL CONTEST. Jury Hearing Evidence in Case in the Probate Court. Hearing is in progress before a jury In the Probate Court, Justice Anderson presiding, of a contest over the estate of Mrs. Hannah Coyle valued at $10,000.

At the death of Mrs. Coe bequests of $1.2X> are provided, and the remaining estate left to St. Aloysius Church. The niece. Mrs. Coe, has filed a caveat, charging that at'the time the alleged will was executed her aunt was mentally in capacitated from illness and from worry incident to the loss of a large portion of her savings through the failure of Thomas E. Waggaman, with whom her money had bsen placed. Attorneys Wilton J. Lambert and R. H. Yeatman represent the niece, and At torneys W. Gwynn Gardiner and'William B. Reilly appear for the proi*>nents of the will. Engineers Going to New Stations.

He complained to the vicar general in charge of the cathedral a few day a a^o that Antonio Sandrina. a contractor doing some work in the church, had refused to let him work any longer by the day. and was making him work by the piece, which he considered unjust. For a time it was thought Calanisa touched off the explosive, but the contractor exonerated him. Strong evidence turned up against Palma. and the detectives working on the case think he is the culprit. The con tractor says he saw him in the church several times during the last week. Saturday evening Palma left there with a large oval-shaped bundle. The contractor now rer-alls that Palma's actions were exceedingly suspicious. When the explosion occurred Palma was seen running from the direction of the cathedral. He caught a street car, and after riding two squares jumped o(T. The conductor and one of the passenger* noticed his excited manner, and the pas senger followed him. Caught in Shoe Shop. Palma went to the store of an Italian shoemaker in Dauphin street. The pas senger rang up the third precinct sta tion, and Detective Mooney came to the shop and arrested Palmo just as he was giving the shoemaker a detailed descrip tion of the explosion. The explosive was placed in the door way of the music room, in which was a lot of church music valued at $500, some of which, being rare manuscripts, cannot be replaced. It drove the flooring in, cutting through two heavy joists, and tore down the ceiling overhead, besides break ing nearly all of the small windows and some of the valuable stained glass win dows of the edifice. As the explosion was within a few feet of the big organ, it is assumed the in strument is badly injured. While the police are settled on Palma as the man who committed the depreda tion. they are in a quandary as to his motive. The priest of another downtown church received a Black Hand letter the other day, but the vicar general of ttie cathedral declares he has not received any letters or heard any threats.
