The Deceased Well Known Through out the United States. He Was the Designer of Some of the Finest Buildings in the Land—Melan cholia the Cause. Associated Press Dispatches. 1 Washington, D. C, October 21. — Architect Mullett, one of the best known architects of this city, and for years supervising architect of the treas ury department, shot and killed himself this evening at his residence. He had been in poor health for a long time, suf fering from rheumatism and other com plications, but it is thought financial trouble was the chief cause of Mullett's act. Dr. P. J. Murphy, surgeon in Chicago Columbia hospital, who for many years had been Mullett's family physician, made a statement of the circumstances of the shooting, substantially as follows: About 5 o'clock he was called to the house to see Mrs. Mullett who was slightly indisposed. After prescribing for Mrs. Mullett, the doctor took leave and went to his office just across the street. He had been there but a short time when a son of Mr. Mullett came running over and asked him to come to the house immediately. He hurried back in response to the sum mons, apd found Mullett lying across the bed in his sleeping apartment, and partially disrobed, unconscious and bleeding profusely. The doctor made a hasty examination, and found that the blood came from a wound about two inches above the right eye. The dying man gave four or five gasps, and expired within seven minutes after the wound had been inflicted. When the doctor first entered the room he found Mrs. Mullett lying by the body of her wounded husband., weeping bitterly, with her arms thrown around his neck. The doctor moved her gently from the room and then gave his attention to her husband. Later in the evening the coroner was summoned, and after an examination of the body gave a verdict of death from suicide, due to melancholy. Mr. Mullett was 50 years old, and very well known. He designed many of the public buildings that have been"erected in different cities, among them being the New York city postoffice and the impos ing state, war and navy department builiingin this city. Mr. Mullett had a severe case of the grip last winter, from which he still suffered. For the past few months he had been at times despondent and gloomy. WORLD'S FAIR WORK. Classification, Space, Allowances and Other Natters. Chicago, Oct. 20. —At today's meeting of the executive committee of the world's fair national commission, Har ris, of Virginia, offered a resolution which he asked to be referred to a con ference committee of the commission and local directory, directing that com mittee to consider the advisability of appointing a joint conference committee ot the two bodies to act permanently with relation to subjects in which both bodies are interested. If this proposi tion is adopted it will result in the crea tion of a body, whish will probably be in almost continuous session in this city, and will exercise express supervision over and have practical administration of exposition affairs. The director-general submitted a report urging the adoption of a system of bureaus for the administration of the work of the exposition. He announced the appointment of General F. H. Arm strong, as his assistant, to be sent to different states to assist in organization. The sub-committee of the committee on classification submitted a report re viewing the entire work of the com mittee, and making an estimate of the number of acres of floor space and un covered ground required for the various displays, as followB: Agricultural hall, fifteen acres; horti cultural hall, five acres, without outside space, twenty-five acres; live stock, 100 acres (noestimate of buildings); fisher ies, two acres; mineral palace, five acres; machinery hall, twenty acres; transportation, twenty acres, besides open space; electrical palace, four acres; manufacturers' palace, twenty acres; fine arts gallery, five acres. The space to be covered by the federal building and those of foreign and state governments,and special and private ex hibitors, is not included in these esti mates. Prof. Blake's report gave a system of classification substantially the same as that tentatively adopted a fortnight ago, except that he proposes a separate de partment for transportation—railways, vessels and vehicles—and also a separate department entitled, "ethnology, archae ology and the progress of labor and in vention." The matter of a separate de partment for music and drama, he leaves for the commission to discuss. ASSASSINS JAILED. Chief Hennessy's Murderers on the Way to the Gallows. New Orleans, Oct. 20. —Tony Ma tranga and Vicento Carruso, arrested a . few days ago and released, were arrested again today and committed to the par ish prison, charged with being accesso ries to the assassination of Chief of Police Hennessey. From what can be learned, there is hardly any doubt that the five men who committed the crime and the villainous brains that gave birth to the foul plot are among those now in jail. One or two more of the conspirators are still at large, but it is only a question of time before they too will be behind the bars, and it is safe to say that when the trial comes up the police will be able to produce sufficient information to send the entire gang to the gallows. The forty Italians arrested last night have been released, it having been TUESDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 21, 1890.—TEN PAGES. shown that they came south to work on plantations. STILL MAJJ'S INSANITY. He Eats Regularly Now, Prays to God and Curses the Devil. Fresno, Oct. 20.—Last Monday Jo seph L. Stillmanj now on trial for the murder of John Fiske, announced to the jail officers that he would not eat any more food cooked in jail, as he believed it contained slow poison. For three days he ate nothing, but then asked for food and has since then eaten three meals a day, and says nothing more about poison. When not in court or eating, he spends his time praying to God and cursing tiie devil. A large number of witnesses who knew Stillman socially, today testified that they be lieved him of unsound mind. The large crowd at the trial continues. REGISTRATION FRAUDS. Republican Corruptionlsts Colonizing Chicago With Negroes. CmcAGO.Oet. 20.—A Democratic even ing paper publishes the statement that a negro named Dunson, arrested today for improper registration, admitted to a member of the Democratic campaign committee, that he had been paid for doing so by a member of the Republican committee.

D., Oct. 20.—A physician living at Fort Pierre yesterday returned from a visit to a band of Indians twenty five miles from here, whithir he was summoned by a "squaw man," who in formed him that the entire band of 200 would die off unless something was done for them.

These Indians have been realizing the new messiah craze, by fasting and executing ghost dances with out stint, for months, until they are helpless, and have brought on disease. A PAINFUL RUMOR. MEMBERS OF CONGRESS HOIST BY THEIR OWN PETARD. They Bought $10,000,000 Worth of Sil ver Before the Bill Passed, and Now Are Unable to Sell at a Profit. Washington, Oct. 20. —There is a pain ful rumor in circulation here to the effect that members of congress who went into a pool for the purchase of a large quantity of silver before the silver bill passed, have been unable to dispose of their holdings, aud are likely to carry them some months before it reaches the quotation of a month or six weeks ago. It is understood that the pool represents $10,000,000 in silver, purchased at prices ranging from $1.04 to $1.10. After the passage of the act quotations ran up" as high as $1.10, but speculators in New York unloaded so rapidly, and so much of the metal was shipped to this country from England, that the market was flooded and the congressmen were unable to dispose of the large quantity they had purchased. THE BRIGANDS. W. T. Carleton's Reappearance at the Grand Opera House. After a long absence Mr. W. T. Carle ton reappeared last night at the Grand. He put on The Brigands, in that finished and almost faultless style for which he has been noted for so many years. The operais a highly picturesque one, and the setting and costuming were done with that regard to details and disregard for cost which Carleton always develops in his business. The music is not quite after the customary Offenbach style, but it is melodious and light. The piece abounds in chorus work, and all their ensembles were wrought out with that care and precision which is the main characteristic of the impressario'e method. The resonant music was in terpreted to the echo by the big mob of singers in the chorus. Carleton has splendid scope for the display of his own wonderful voice. He sang better last night than he has ever done before in Los Angeles. He is very nearly up to .his best per formances of ten years ago. The Three Beggars, from the Beggar Student, was introduced by him and given with supreme effect. Two recalls did not half satisfy the audience. A feature of the opera regretted by all playgoers is that it does not permit Mr. Murray to appear to any advantage. His voice is hardly heard alone. Charlie Drew's absence made a big hole in the cast. His graceful presence, and spontaneous comedy are not re placed by many removes by Mr. Bige low, whose main effort last night was in the way of topical songs, the Wind and Whiskers and Tale of Woe being his favorite chestnuts. Miaa Lane ia in better health than when here before, and her voice is very aweet and pure. It lacks only in power. Jennie Winston is an old-time favor ite here, and received a warm welcome from the audience. The house waa a splendid one in point both of numbera and quality. All the first-nighters were there in force and in brilliant costumes. Tonight The Queen's Lace Handker chief will be presented. Wedneaday afternoon the company go to Pasadena and give a matinee, the same opera to be sung. The Neally Steven* Concert. First Congregational church was com fortably filled last evening by a very c n thusiastic audience, Who went to hear Miss Neally Stevens in her first appear ance before a Los Angele- audience since finishing her education in Europe. Miss Stevens received a very warm greeting which was du|y merited, us ahe is with out doubt one of the most finished lady performera in this i mntry. Miaa M. Lizzie Bacon, a local vocalist, charmed the audience with her sweet voice, and received several encores, which she very graciously responded to. The Los Angeles choral society lent material aid to the evening's entertain ment, and rendered their parts in grand style. The chorus is very well "rained for one so young. HOT FIT TO GOVERN. Sir John Morley Gets Rack at Balfour. A Reply to the Latter's Speech at Newcastle. Gladstone Enthusiastically Received in Scotland. Dillon a-d O'Brien Shown Distinguished Honors in France—General for eign Intelligence. Associated Press Dispatches. London, Oct. 20.—Morley addressed his constituents in Newcastle this even ing. He said Balfour's arguments in his recent speech were mainly misrep resentations and irrelevancies. He re minded Balfour that compensation for the disturbance bill, the arrears bill and tramways bill was all due to Parnellite suggestions, and the land bill of 1887 was draft ed on the basis Parnell suggested. Balfour was responsible for an excessive coercive government, and he ought to supervise it on the spot. Morley ad hered to his previous assertions, that the police had used excessive force in Tip perary. It was not bodily injury which, Balfour said, a stinking" plaster would mend, but the sting of insult which in flamed the people. Such supercilious talk showed that Balfour was unfit to govern. GLADSTONE IN SCOTLAND. The Grand Old Man Everywhere Enthu siastically Received. Liverpool, Oct. 20.—Gladstone, on a tour of Scotland, left this morning. The railway station at Wigan was crowded. The people stated that they did not want him to make a speech, but to re serve his voice to speak in Midlothian and demolish the Tories. Gladstone, nevertheless, made a speech, in which he said Midlothian knew what to do of itself. Nothing was left for him to do. He was heartily received along the entire route. At Carlisle he said he had no fear for Scotland, and hoped England would do as well in the home rule movement. When Gladstone reached Edinburgh he received a large number of Scoth pol iticians. There was a large crowd at the railway station, and he was given an ovation. THE IRISH FUGITIVES. Dillon and O'ltrlen Shown High Honors In Paris. Paris, Oct. 20.—Dillon and O'Brien visited the Chamber of Deputies today and were given seats by the presiding officer. In an interview today William O'Brien declared that he attached no importance to the report of rivalry said to exist be tween the Irish societies in the United States. Such reports he said were always afloat on the eve of the departure of an Irish mission to that country. The members of the mis sion did not intend to interfere with in dividual rivalries. They wtjre going as delegates of Parnell and the whole Irish party, and he was confident they would receive the support of the Irishmen in America, and the sympathy of the entire American people.

London, Oct. 20.—1n his speech at Newcastle, Monday, Lord Granville said the tories pretended they were confi dent of the result of appealing to the country, yet they delayed dissolving parliament as long as possible.

The idea with them is, the garment will bring so much profit. Not so with us. We take pride in our business and welcome every improvement. Well made clothing is our specialty. We take the same pains tp secure good wearing and well made goods, when buying 100 suits, that you do to buy one. We aim to make a steady customer of every man that purchases of us.
