Wound Inflicted With Ice Pick.
Antemortem Statement.
Accused of responsibility for the death
of James D. Moore, colored, Thomas Daly,
employed us bartender in the saloon of
his brother, l."519 7th street, was today
held for the action of the grand jury, as
the result of a coroner's inquest.
Moore, who resided at Vermont
avenue, died at the Homeopathic Hospital
Saturday morning: as the result of a stab
wound in his left chest- Witnesses tes
tified that Moore was stabbed with an ice
pick by Daly. The latter shortly after
the verdict was rendered was committed
to jail. Attorneys John E. Laskey and
Alexander H. Bell appeared for the de
fendant and Assistant United States At
torney Perry for the government, while
relatives of the deceased were represented
by Attorney John W. Patterson.
The trouble between the bartender and
Moore occurred about 4 o'clock last Wed
nesday afternoon. Moore dying at the
Homeopathic. Hospital Saturday morning.
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.
Daly struck Moore t>n tiie head with a
Witness said Moore paid for the drink
and then Daly stabbed him with an ice
pick. 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."
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."

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

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
The Egyptian has been Encouraged by

Britain must assume her share of blame
for a situation which may have to be

Priest Has Received Threatening
Black Hand Letter?Italian
Tinsmith Arrested.
NEW ORLEANS, April 2f?.-An at
tempt to blow up a portion of the historic
St. Louis Cathedral, either in settlement
of a feud between a laborer and a con
tractor or a Black Hand grudge, was
made yesterday afternoon with dynamite.
? A bomb was touohed off in the music
room, behind the organ, on the second
floor of the church. More than $1,000
worth of work recently completed was
There were no worshipers In the church.
A priest, a woman and a child were the
only occupants at the time, and none
was injured.
Italian Tinsmith Suspected.
Fernando Palma. tinsmith. <132 Dumaine
street; Angelo Saputo. (528 Dumaine street,
and Antonio Calanisa, 619 Ursulines
street, were arrested. Calanisa was after
ward released.
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
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.
