Baltimore, Md., March 8.—Jen
nie Reed, aged 21 years, of this city,
was murdered tonight by a high
wayman at' Mount Washington, a
residence, suburb. She and Joseph
Mueller, to whom she was engaged
to be married, were on the way to
visit friends at Mount Washington,
and, according to Mueller's state
ment, left the car at South avenue.
When to a lonely :^lace they were
stopped by a man whb, leveling a
pfstol, called for th«lr yaluables.
Mueller, he says, gave up what
money he had, and then the high
wayman demanded a necklace worn
by .Mias iRe^fL:',',,•'•
Her reply was a slap in the face
upon receiving 'which the man fired,
the bullet striking the girl behind
the left ear. She was carried Into
a nearby house, but death had been
almost instantaneous. The highway
man disappeared, and is being dill-,
gently sought by the police.
Mueller, who appears to have been
the only witness to the shooting,
was placed under arrest.
Last December Mueller received a
threatening letter in which he
warned that if he did not cease his
attentions to Miss Reed he would be
made to suffer. Some time thereaf
ter there came to him by mail a box
of candies, the contents of which
were found to contain poison. The
sender of the package has never
been discovered.

Having been:.-practlcnUy-.-e^
by the tariff framers, portipirt' of'j»'.^%^
new tariff bill tonight were sent to
the government printers. It is ex
pected that by Wednesday the en
tire measure will he in type.
Although no announcement has
been made by the house committee
on ways and means regarding any
of the schedules of the tentative bill,
it has been learned on unquestiona
ble authority that as a concession to
thfe shoemen, because of placing
hides on the free list, the duty on
shoes would be reduced.
While no figures were obtainable
regarding the steel schedule it was
stated on the same authority that a
substantial reduction to the duty on
steel rails, tools and similar products
is provided for.
A duty of four cents a pound on
coffee is levied. This is by way of
compromise with those who demand
a tax of six cents a pound.
I Whiskey and beer will remain as
Medicine they are if the sub-committee's hec
ommendations are enacted into law.
It'was felt that whlakey was already
carrying all the tax it could stand,
while In the case of beer, the prohi
bition movement throughout the,
country, it was expected, had cut
down the consumption of beer, and
it was felt that it would be a hard
ship to impose any further tax-
It htaving become manifest to the
committee that duties derived from
hot furnish' the revenue* expected,
they turned to the expedient of re
viving the war revenue act of 1898,
which placed a tax on telegrams,
bank checks, playing cards and all
stocks bought or sold. That feature
of the war revenue act is incorporat
ed in the measure as* drafted, it is
said. A matter which is perplexing
the committee is that of the placing
of a tax on inheritances. President
Taft wants it, it is d/eclared, and is
pressing the committee to take ac
tion along that line, and predictions
are that the committee will yield
to the president's wishes.
President Taft is seeking to have
a copy of the bill deliyered to the
senate committee on finance before
the special session begins, in order
that it may begin work on it at
once, believing that much time will
he saved and that expense will be
materially curatlled.
