These monkeys live up in the branches

touch the earth beneath them and they

Status ot Tariff Bill All Grades of
Wool to bo Admitted Free Sugar
Schedule not Yet Considered
The President Approves the Suspension of
I > eo Ball from th Kiowa Comanche
and Wichita Agency
Special to the Gazette
Washington Feb 1 The new tariff
bill may be reported to the House early
nest we k and certainly within a fart
night One of the most prominent mem
bers ot the ways and means committee
said tonight AH statements hitherto
published as to the character ot the bill
are misleading I can assurevouthat
the sugar schedule has not yet been con
sidered Ton may state this positively
You may state with equal posltlvencss
that tin plates which jield a revenue of
about 6000000 annually have not been
considered The metal schedule
is a the one to which we
have given most attention
yet It is so far from being complete that
no later than last night it was referred to
a sub committee f or careful revision It
U not Improbable that by this committee
the schedule may undergo
Of course it is impossible to speak au
thoritatively upon this point but it is
probable that steel rails will be reduced
10 or 11 per ton Agricultural Imple
ments will be placed on the tree list
This at least is cur present intention
and I presume it will not be changed
Fruit brandies will probably go on the
free list Free coal and free ores how
ever are doubtful All grades
of wool will be admitted
free We do not propose to temporize
upon this important interest I can also
say to you In this connection that the
woolen manufacturers in the Mohawk
Valley N Y who will be greatly bene
fited by he passage of this bill must
either stand or fall with us They can
not however excect a measure framed
in their Interests solely They must be
satlstsd with other features of the bill in
order to secure the benefits which they
themselves desire We arc looking to
them to assist us when the matter comes
up for consideration in the H ause I am
curious to see if our expectations are
well founded

Special to the Gazette
Tkxakkana Ark Feb 1 Brock and
Burrows the Cotton Belt train robbers
were not removed to Little Bock last
night as Intended but were arraigned for
for examination this morning before Jus
tice McFlInns court The examination
was held with closed doors but among
the newspaper reporters admitted was
The Gazette reporter The accused
waived an examination but as there was
a large array of witnesses in attendance
they were examined and the testimony of
the most important ones taken down
The robbery in question was committed
ceir a little station of the Cot
ton Belt road called Genoa
about eight miles east of this
place on the night of December 9 1887
and the testimony of one of the partici
pants established it as one ot the most
Ekillf nlly devised and executed of any of
the kind of this age of train robbery
James Buchanan Burrows who was
captured in Limar county Alabama a
fewdays agand brought to this place is
apparently about thhtyflre years old
about five feet nine inches highand looks
the farmer or cowboy When the rfal
commenced this morning he wore a carp
less air and had a smile on his icb
which changed to nervous twltchlipg
as the trial proceeded and the incidents
of the robbery were related ona by d ei
Some of Flnkertons best mob aiBjhereJ
and they are directing the prosecution
which is conducted by someot the ablesY
attorneys at this bar Thomas Civlny
the express agent who wis fine ofthe
victims ot the robbery gown clear and
explicit account of the robbery and fully
and completely Identified Brock and Bur
raws as the men who held up the train
and broke into the express car and stated
that Burrows ordered a can ot oil to be
Brought that he might burn the car
W L Brock would be recognized by
the description given of him by the news
papers at the time of the robbery He
says he Is thirtytwo years old Is large
heavy set fully six feet high very high
forehead fair complexion and mustache
that was spoken of as belonging to the
leader of the gang He gave a fall state
ment cf the whole affair and in good
language showing that be has some edu
cation Brock said that his home was
near Alexandria in Erath county
Texss He hns lived there two
years came from San Antonio to that
place first became acquainted with
James Buchanan Burrows and Rube Hous
ton Burrows In Erath county and worked
for them on a farm Jim and Reuben
Barrows moved back to Alsbimj some
time in November last About the last
ofNovemberhe received a letter from
Rube Burrows to meet him at
Texarkana on December 1 Brock
arrived hero on time but it
was several days before the two Bur
rowses arrived They put up at the Cos
mopolitan hotel which is in the Immedi
ate vicinity of the Cotton Blt depot
Brock registered in his own proper
name Jim Bnrrows registered as James
Buchanan and Rabin as Rabin Houston
They remained several days and discussed
the proposed robbery Brocif and Jim
Burrows opposed the robbery in this
vicinity for the reason that the country
was new and they were afraid they would
be caught Ruoe overruled them how
ever and they met near the roundhouse
and arranged the programme Theyhad
a six shooter each but concluded that
was not arms enough so on the 6th ot
December the three went to Tyler on the
Cotton Belt but not finding the kind of
guns and cartridges they wanted
they went on to Corslcana Here they
purchased from GP Keener a merchant
of that city two nineshooting Coils
guns Mr Keener Is here as a witness
The party then left for Ttxirkana
direct and arrived here on the 7th but
only halted long enough for Brock to buy
through tickets for the party to Girland
City where they proposed to rot the
train Examining the ground at Garland
City they found a boarding train and
force of men at work near the point they
had selected They then went to
Lewis ville Station only a few
miles further and spent the night Tney
decided that was cot a suitable place on
account of the water and mud and re
turned on this side ot Red river to Came
ron StatlOD and from there to Genoa
station and camped on the 8h The
robbery was to have been committed on
the night of the 8tb and Brock and Jim
Bnrrows were at the appointed place to
board the train but it went by and
The party wint to camp and spent the
night in lolling around The plan
was for Rabe Barrows to remain
at the cut where the j 3b wa3 to be com
mitted and Jim and Brock were to board
the train when it halted at Genoa waich
plan was faithfully carried out Brock
states that when the bell sounded to
move out be and JimjjSBurrows both
mounteden the engine from one side
both masked Brock held a pistol at the
engineer and Burrows at the nremn and
ordered them to pull out Brock says
the engineer
and declared they would collide with a
southbound train th t was ex
pected every minute Brock assured
the engineer that the train
was sidetracked and that there was no
danger whereupon the engineer said all
right and put on steam When they ar
rived at the cut where Rube Barrows was
in waiting the engine was baited and
Jim Surruws yelled out to Rube to know
if that was far enough Rube said all
right and Brock and Jim got off the en
gine taking the engineer and fireman
with them and went to the express car
In the meantime Rubs
and jnst opposite tho express car iu a
loud voice ordered it to be opened
This was refused and a volley
of fifteen or twenty shots were fired Into
the car At the first volley the lights in
the car were extinguished The rebbers
then guarded the fireman to where he
procured the coal pick acd under the dl
rectlon ot Jim Burrows beat n hole in the
car door Rube Barrows was the man
that they called Cip so frequently while
they were pillaging the car and while it
Is noticeable that Robe was
he was no doubt tbe leader of the party
They robbed the train at their leisure and
according to Brocks statement only got
about 2800 In currency end 300 In ell
ve whfch was In sacks Bro < k finished
hlsBtatement by declaring that he was
not Influenced by any hopeof clemency or
mercy and was not actuated by threats
The examination will close tomorrow
and will demonstrate some ot the most
skillful detective work that was ever done
in this section as Flnkertons men had
down to a nicety every movement of the
men In of the robbery both before and
after the robbery
