TREASURER JACKSON'S RETORT It Is Thought Thut the Decision to Abob Us. the Outing Will Cause DUxat If faction in the Guard-As to Finul Adjournment. pedal to the Soranton Tribune. Hurrlsburg. April IS. There will be Bo National Guard encampments this year. The depleted condition of the state treasury demands thin. It will be a saving to the commonwealth of at least $150,000. The common school ap propriation is to be cut I1.000.000. The amount given charitable and penal In stitution are to be bulled down. No new building will be allowed. With this chopping Jl.400.0o0 can be saved (or charities for the next two years. This was agreed upon at a conference held last night. Governor Hastings, Lieutenant Cov entor I.yon. Secretary Keeder. Attorney General McCurmlck. State Treasurer Jackson, President Pro. Tern. Thomas, of the senate; Speaker Walton, and Chairman Marshall, of the house ap propriations committee met together last night at the eecutlve mansion. They discussed the appropriation asked A for and State Treasurer Jackson was y railed upon for a statement. He showed the revenue had steadily decreased since The average reduction In tat taxes is from 40 to 50 per cent., while in some cases It has been as heavy as 75 per cenf. The estimated revenues for the next two years show it will be Impossible to apprprlate more than $20,000,000. .Last session $-'.000.000 were doled out. At that time the na tional government Increased the reve nues by refunding to the state $1,700,000 lu direct taxes. This money will not be poured Into the coffers of the common wealth this year. It was gathered from the statement Of Colonel Jacksou that a cut of 10 per cent, in all appropriations would be necessary. Charitable and penal insti tutions relying entirely upon the state for support require $3,2S'J.Oih) for the next two years. Schools have been re ceiving $11,000,000. legislative. Judici ary and executive expenses amount to $4,500,000. Soldiers' orphan schools need JtiO.OOO. This makes a total of over $i0. WO.OOO.' If this money was allowed It would leave but SJoo.OOO for charity. Thes institutions ask for J2.100.000. Last session they were given $2,200,000. Two years ago Jl.000,000 was added to the school appropriation. It was argued at the conference that this sum was intended for the purchase of free text books. This law has now been com plied with and It is thought the $l,uoo. 000 could be chopped off the appropria tion for the next two years. This rec ommendation will at least be made to the legislature. . Much opposition la ex pected to this cut. but Chairman War shall hopes, when the situation is ex plained that the objection will be with drawn. ' Will Save the Stato $15,000. It was Intended this year to have three brigade encampments. The con ference has decided that this will be an Impossibility. This will save the state $150,000. but it will cause a great deal of dissatisfaction among the 9.000 mem bers of the National Guard. It will tickle the farmers, but It Is argued that It will be very harmful to the guard. Many of the boys join the military for the ten days' vacation It gives them. If they are deprived of this outing they will naturally lose Interest in the organ ization. The gentlemen at the confer ence think the experience the troops received from the actual service at Homestead In 1892, and the state en campment at Gettysburg last year, will be sufficient to keep the boys In field training. Governor Hastings said sa far as he was concerned he would approve of nothing that would put the state in debt to meet the legitimate expenses and the demands of charity. This means the stopping of new buildings and extensions. The expenses of all state and charitable Institutions must be cut- This will allow the gathering together of $1,400,000 for charity. About all the Institutions will secelve this year Is something for maintenance. Treasurer Jackson gave figures to how how hard times have affected all business. For example, he spoke of several large concern's, the names of which are withheld. They Include a brewing company, an Insurance con cern, a railroad, manufacturing cor poration and an oil company. In 1892 the oil company paid $205,000, last year its taxes amounted to $131,457. In the same years the brewing company fell off from $34,000 to $15,000. The railroad paid In taxes In 1892 $23,000 and In 1894 $9,000, a dropping off in Its receipts made this difference. A similar de crease was shown In the Insurance company. A Pittsburg manufacturing corporation which Is known througho' the world paid Into the state treas" In 1892 $47,000. Last year the re .-hue received from It was $3,500. From all parts of the state come similar report. - This decision of the governor will knock all the new asylums for chronic Insane which the different parts of the state have been asking for. The Indus trial school for soldiers' orphans at Scottland, for which an appropriation of $350,000 to enlarge the Institution was to have been asked, will also be affected. v The iinal Adjournment. A resolution fixing the final adjourn ment for iMay 23 will probably be Intro duced In the house next Monday even ing. This Is a scheme to hurry the work. The leaders have talked over the situation and believe the date of the final adjournment will be fixed to re mind the lawmakers that summer In approaching. The senate will Insist that the house devote at least a month to the discussion of senate bills, or time enough to dispose of them. In, 'the past the house has managed to. dump about 200 senate bills without consideration.

Louis Frank and Miss Kate Kolb, lovers, who lived in this city, died for love In u horri ble manner before daylight this morn ing, the mun being the murderer and the suicide by agreement. Their bo dies were found lying side by side on Jacob Duffy's farm, a few miles west of the city on the Walton road. In the right hand of the man was a revolver and each was shot through the heart. Miss Kolb, a beautiful young woman, lay stretched upon the ground with her throat cut from ear to ear. Blood wad still flowing from the ghastly wound. By her side was the corpse of Frank, whose face was horribly dis torted by the agonies of death. He was lying almost face downward with his right arm thrown across the body of the woman. His throat was also cut from ear to ear. The knife, covered with blood, lay on the ground. At the feet of the bodies was an empty box labelled "Rat Poison." The woman's hat lay crushed on the ground. Pinned to a ribbon was this note: "April 9. We have both decided to die together and If one or the other should happen to recover the other shall not be held responsible for the deed. We both are gotng to take poison, and I will do the shooting. We ure not doing thra on ac count of any Jove affair, but simply be cause we do not want to live any longer. This is all we have to say and hope there will be no trouble. We remain as ever, yours truly. Mr. Louis Frank, 1934 Chero kee street; Miss Kate Kolb." There were traces of poison on the 'lips of both. After swallowing the pol sou they had gashed their throats with the blade of a large clasp knife and the man had made doubly sure by firing a bullet into the girl's breast. He ended his own life In the same manner. A farmer who lives across the road from the scene says he heard two pistol shots about 2 o'clock In the morning, but did not investigate. Kate Kolb lived at U37 Cherokee street with her parents. She and Frank, who had been engaged for a year, left home together last Wednesday. The girl left a note saying they were going to kill themselves and ascribed love as the cause. The letter was found yester day. MORRISON ATTACKED. Formation of Eastern Association of the G. A. p.

MURDER AJJICKSON CITY Motorman George Shea's Ghastly l'lnd Ncur Lloyd's Hotel. DEAD BODY 01 JOSEPH TIKK The Lifeless Form of the Murderod Man 1'ound Lying Near the Street Car Mulls Moody Stone' and Sprag Keurby. About 11.15 last night Motorman George Shea, of the Peckvllle line of the Scran ton Traction company, on his lust out ward-bound trip, discovered the b'iuy of a mun lying along the street cur tracks at a point between the Lloyd hotel In Dickson City and the Hcrtihton city line, and upon exam ining the body it was seen that the mat' was to ull appearances dead. The motormau notltled Ottlcer Jesse Morris, of Dickson, who went to the scene where the body laid and found the iik'ii in the lust stage of life. The unfortunate Itidlvlduul breathed his lust a lew minutes ufter Motormau Slit-a first miw him. . . It was found that the mun was a Iiu:iar:un numed Joseph Turk, em ployed by tho Muoslc Mountain Coal company, and he lived at Marshwood. He wus apparently 35 years of age, low sized, but of rather heavy build, had a dark, heavy mustache und brown hair, was a married mun and the father of four chtdren. Was In Uulla'gher's Hotel. Turk wus lust seen before his death In the Lloyd Hi use, In Prlceburg, kept by a man named Gallagher. Two com panions were with him and they were drinking. Turk was put out of the ho til and his companions left a few min utes after wind. Twenty-five minutes later the htipleS3 Hungurlun was found ou the lend not more than 250 years south from the hotel from which he had been ejected. Blood-Stained Stone und Sprng. The body reclined full on Its back not over two feet from the street car rail on the lefthand side of the track. The left arm vas mangled and bloody and thrown across the chest. ' A hat was found five feet from the body and had the appearance of having been In a struggle. Ten feet away was found a mine sprag. one end covered with blood, and not far from the sprag was a large stone, also blood-stained. Offi cer Morris traced blood-stains and foot marks In the soft earth from where the body laid to the Delaware and Hudson tracks. No evidences of a struggle were apparent' m the vicinity, and an examination of the street car tracks for a considerable distance up or down the line failed to disclose any marks that would warrant the. assumption that the man had been killed by the trolley oar. llcnd and Noso Broken. But the nose seemed to be smashed and the right side of the head was fear fully contused. The theory is that he was hit with the sprag on the head and that the blow caused his death. It Is probable the man was attacked on the Delaware and Hudson railroad and pounded Into insensibility and from there his body carried to the place where It was found. This is an Im probable theory, but It Is the only one now In evidence. Justice of the Peace Logan, of Dick son, was summoned to the scene of the tragedy and he empaneled the follow ing Jury: John McOulre, Lewis James, Thomas McOulre, P. O. Malley, John J. Griffiths, and Jesse Morris. The Jury viewed the body and then Justice Logan ordered Undertaker John Swallow, of Olyphant, to take charge of the remans. The coroner will hold an inquest today. The deceased wore a rough suit of clothes and rubber boots, He was no ticeably under the influence of liquor when he was put out of the Lloyd House. At the hour of going to press It was not known whether any person or per sons had been arrested for the crime. KURGLARS AT WORK. Lot of Goods Stolen from Doltrlck's Store ut Annloinlnk.

Attorneys Frsoly Offer Ad viae Calculated tu Pluce Thorns In' the Pathway of ' Kovenue Collectors. Washington, April 12.The regula tions Issued yesterday by the Internal revenue division, attorneys say, can not be enforced In full. It is pointed out that the decision of the supremo court last Monday wipes out of the law ail reference to Incomes from rent, and that the statute stands as If Incomes from that source had never been men tioned. The requirement that returns shall Include the amount received from that source, lawyers say, cannot be enforced, as there Is no provision upon which process can be based. Another discrimination made by the law has also been discovered. Attor neys say that where a wife has an In oomp independent from that of her hus band, which Is less than $4,000, It can not be taxed and that it need not be in cluded within his return. But If It be more than $4,000 It must be added to the total of her husband's taxuble in come and but one deduction of $4,000 mude from the gross sum. It is claimed that no return at all need be made by persons whose in comes are wholly derived from rents, regard Iws of the amount. DEVOUT AND ROMANTIC.

Lowry, W. 10. Wheeler, F. N. Smith, S. G. Snowden, C. E. Sweet, 8. A. Terry, a. N. Under Wood and L. T. Van Campden. The rapt' attention with which the eloquent and polished words of the bishop were listened to showed the wonderful Influence he held over his audience whose regular vocation Is to exhort men. His theme was "The Apostle Paul," who he described as the perfect slave of Christ, and he pictured him as an example to them. He told them to suy nB the apostle had said, "I am no more my own." Every Chris tian man had a vocation, God; but they must bear .In mind that preaching would not be productive of much wealth, but a faithful and honest man could go through life safely anil com fortably on the stipend given. . If they were faithful they would be blessed with Intellectual growth, and a great many things desired on this earth, but they must be prepared for poverty and contempt, possibly from the members of their own church, which would lacerate their hearts, but they had In the audi- ' ence soma faithful, grey-headed men who were now rejoicing in their past career, and it should encourage them to follow In their footsteps. They would be separated from all ordinary worldly pursuits; they were not to lubor to please men and get honors, but tu please God. The bishop then advised Ilium as to their line of action upon the greut social questions, the politlcul corruption, the relations between labor and capital, organized vice like the suloon traffic. Ministers must place deep In the hearts of men the yeurnlng for the social trannformatlon, He did not, however, suy that they must never dlHcuss these problems In the pulpit, but It was such wide policy that they must do so la a tempered tnuiinerund not attempt to exercise au thority over the opinions and Judgments of other men. Study to know the Truth. It was easier for some men to gather money for building churches and sign ing contracts thun to sit down In earn est study, or to be reully devout. They should be careful not to waste their PEARCE. Building a Social Need." precious time with secular church time, but study to know the whole truth of God. They should always take one central topic at each service whprnhv thtv could get hold of It with Intelligence, rrom whence would come clearness of understanding and lucidity of utter ance. The bishop then emphasized upon the following points in the work and character of Paul, viz: as a preach er, writer, visitor, in cnnsrvinn- tho household, training young men. his tact ana willingness to bear poverty. From each one he made trenchant deductions for the benefit of the ministerial asi.ir- ants. IN THE AFTERNOON'. Anniversary Meeting of Women's Mis sionary Society Held.

The total for the whole of the conference district was $5,722. Mrs. Potter gave a retrospect of the work of the Women's Missionary soci ety and rvferred to the statement in a Presbyterian report that there were 6,000,000 illiterate white people in the mountainous region of the southern states who were refugees from Britain, and had lived In an, exclusive manner generation after generation in those re gions. The efforts of tho missionaries were such that when the girls returned to tlwlr homes, they were so Improved that their parents did not recognize them. This was due solely to tho Chris tian, Influence and uplifting grace of Christ in their heart. The society was also accomplishing a wonderful work among the Spanish and Indians In New Mexico. Work Among the Indians. The work among the Indians was one of Intense Interest. Within the bor ders of the states there were 320,000 Indians, of whom 200,000 were pagans. The government of this country had made 807 treaties with these Indians, all of which they had broken. She would not be surprised that the Indians instead of scalping white men occa sionally, that they did not scalp every 0110 they met. She claimed that the Indians respected rights of property, and where a good Influence had been exercised were tractable and easy of approach. Mrs. Potter then spoke of the work among the Mormons and the dtlllculty to be contended with In the superstition and Ignorance of the people. She also describe. Aluslta, whose extent represented one-sixth of the area of the United States, and had 1,000 islands, many of them larger than Massachu setts, and yet the Met hod tot church had done nothing for this. Immense country except what had been accom plished by the society.
