Loophole, in tho Law- By Which Fraud May Dofeat Its Purpesa. President Cleveland filed yesterday with Commissioner of Internal Revenue Miller a statement of his personal Income for tho past year, as required by the income tax law. Mr. Miller met tho President by ap pointment at the White House, and the greater part of the day was consumed in the preparation of the blanks. Nobody gave away the details of tho schedule, but it is .understood that Mr. Cleveland included the amount of his an nual salary in the return, notwithstanding the supposed exemption of that source of income in his case under the Constitutional provision which eays the Presidential emol uments shall not ba increased or diminished during bis term. If it shall be decided thatthisallegedluhibltlonissoundly ground ed, the assessment against Mr. Cleveland will be correspondingly decreased, but otherwise he will pay the sum of $920 on his official salary of $50,000. The mat ter will be investigated prior to July 1, the date .fixed for payment of taxes under the law. BIG RUSH OF RETURNS. There was a big rush all day yesterday at thcoffice of theCollectorof Intern alRevenue on Louisiana avenue near Seventh street by those who were anxious to get in the statement of tho property they held and received income from, liable to taxation, be fore the expiration or the time in which they must file returns. There has been considerable delay on account of the cases pending before the Supreme Court, whose decision wasa-w aited by many before making their statements. When the office was opened in the morn ing many were theie who had been for some time awaiting tl.o armal of the of ficials. The force was kept busy all day until the closing hour in iecellng the very comprehensive statemcntsjsubmitted. It was stated by one of tho deputies that over two hundred returns had been filed during the day, and that the crowd was a verj good humored one, everj body being ap arently willing to help fill tho Govern ment coffers from his individual store. The return is supposed to be made by every taxpajer who is the possessor of aujncome amounting to $3,500 or over. The rule requiring the filing of the returns seem to be lax, in one particular, which is that the personal statement of these who have been required under tho law to file theirreturns,if taken withoutoath where the income waslossthan$3,500. LOOPHOLE FOR FRAUD. In a number of cases during the day, statements were made orally, and without f uther proof being given or reouired, that the income did not reach the required amount under the law, and no record is kept of these persons. The applications in these cases which, in many instances, had been made out and submitted for filing, were returned by the clerkB in charge, with the remark that, if the income did notamountto$3,o0u, there was no necessity of filing the return. Thftreturn statement is a 'very compre hensive document, giving a complete ro- view of all sources of Income, as well as' disbursements, which would affect the ap plication of the tax. Tho last day for filing the returns will be tomorrow, and tho office will be open from 8 a. m. till 6 p m., in order that all who have delated, EubiUtting their re turns may have an opportunity to comply with the statute. It could no the ascertained what action would bo taken by the Treasury Depart ment in regard to those who neglected to properly file their returns.

' ILLINOIS CAPITOL ABLAZE For a Time the -Destruction of the -Whole r3uildingWasPeared. ' Fire Was Caused b7-Tinaers -WhorHadrlwa Repairing tho Roof Panic Among: Employes. Springfield, 111., April 13. Fire broke out to-day In the Senate wing of the State House, and Tanned by a fierce gale raged for over an hour and caused a damage of $25,000. During the fire the greatest ex citement prevailed among the inmates of the State House, and owinp to the high wind and difficulty in getting at the fire, which was under the roof, it was for a time feared that the whole State House would be ruined. The fire was discovered about noon by some janitors in the Senate chamber. Fire men and employes of the State then spent half an hour of vain search for the location of the flames. It was finally located on the roof along the western side of the Senate wing, where tinners had been engaged In repairing the roof. A general alarm was Immediately turned in, but by the lime tho department arrived tho fire had already gamed considerable headway under the metal covering- of the roof. The firemen had great difficulty in getting their lines of hose to the roof. The distance to the ground is over 100 feet. The smoke was overpowering, and they were compelled to go on the roof and chop holes in the metal sheathing and run their streams in that way. To do this heavy lines of hose had to be drawn to the roof. It re quired tune, and when the streams began to play the fire had crept along from the senate wing to the base of the dome. Here, fortunately, was a brick firewall, com pletely shutting oft the rest of the building. The strong wind, however, caused the fianlea to burn fiercely and dense volumes otsmokecame fromall quartersof the State house. Through tho windows, at the basa ofthedome. The smoke ouzedoutaudgave the impression that the whole building was afire. The frightened employes in the various departments of the capitol were in a panicky state. Hundreds of people crowded into the building to wawn the fire, and fear was expressed that the flames would eat their way to the inner dome, whu h is of pine wood. At 1 30 however, the flames were under control, and shortly after that the fire was out. o & AN UNFORTUNATE EXCEPTION. Cardinal Gibbons' Comment Upon the At tack Made on Him by Rey. J. McCrory. Pittsburg, Pa., April 13. Right after Rev. J. McCrory made his attack on Cardi nal Gibbons last Sunday, Rev E R. Don bhoe, one of tlie most liberal of tlie Pres byterian preachers in tins city, wrote to the Cardinal, enclosing published copies of the sermon, and assuring him that Rev McCrory did not represent tlie Protestant ministers of Pittsburg. To-night Mr. Donohoe received a reply from Cardinal Gibbons in which, among other tilings, he says: "I am huppy to think that tills man is nota fair specimen of thcChristlanpreach era. The knowledge that I have from a personal acquaintance with reverend gen tlemen of every denomination convinces methatthe Rev McCrory is an unfortunate exception in a body of honorable and re spected Christians. g o Gotten Ont of tho "VVuy of Lynchers. St. Louis, Mo., April 13. A special to tho Post-Dispatch from Morgautown, KTy., says: Spencer and Belcher, the murderers of Maj.

EVIDENCES OP A STRUGGLE Bhe Had Assisted in Dacoratins the Baa eta ary for tho Easter Festival Suspicioa Ee3ts TJpoa a Student of Dentistry Who Had Once Insulted Her Ha Had Sa quested Her to HeetHiEibut Shi Refused, Ban Francisco, April 13. A Sunday school teacher with her Echolars eutering tha Emanuel Baptist Church to-day to array the Easter decorations found the body of a young girl, frightfully mutilated, In the pastor's study adjoining the main audi torium. Her clothing was lorn and dis heveled, and she had evidently been out raged before she was killed, or else her death was tho result of chagrin and rage on the part of her baffled assailant. Her frail body was covered with blood and wounds. The walls of the study were be spattered with her blood and there was a Iarged red pool under the table near her feet as she lay dead. A cut on her wrist had severed lhe arteries and tendons. She waastabbedineach breast, and over the heart was a flesh wound la which was sticking part of a broken blade. FEROCIOUS AS A TIGER. The assailant had evidently possessed all the ferocity of a Jack the Ripper. The knife, which was afterward found, was a silver-handled table knife used the pre vious evening at a church festival, and was so dull that the victim's dress had to ba opened at tht breast to enable the blade to pierce the flesh. The body haB been identified as that of Minnie Williams, a domestic, residing in Alameda, but a membcrof Emanuel Church in this city. She was about eighteen years old and remarkably pretty. She left her employer's residence in Alameda yesterday afternoon to attend a festival in the church last evening, remain ing all night with friends, and assisted in the decoratings. She wore her best frock, and carried an old dress to wear well working. When the entertainment closed last even ing she is presume to have entered a closet adjoining the study to change her attire. The saxton, believing every one had gone, turned out the lights and I?It the church. DENTAL STUDENT SUSPECTED. The girl bad au excellent reputation, going to no entertainments other than those at the church. Sh? had two mal friends, a dental student, whom she had nob seta lately, and another dental student, who, she had said, had once insulted her, and whomLsrfriends suspctof the murder. This student, whose home Is in Deviant, wrote her yesterday asking her to meet him in San Francisco to-nlgnt. Miss Williams was suspicious, and refusijdbut said h would b- at the festival injyaechun.-b.wher he could see and converejt&wltb her. " They met at the festival, SihTbo on&sair either of them leave the church, at lts con clusion. A DOUBLE MYSTERY. A curious coincidence In, connection with the murder is the fact that Miss Williams was a close f nend of Miss Blanche Lamont, a young girl from Montana, who has beea missing for ten days. Mrs Noble, Miss Lamont's aunt, was th first to discover the dead body of Miss Wil liams in the church. Mrs. Noble to-day re ceived through the mails a paper in which, were wrapped three rings worn by her miss ing niece the night she disappeared. On the paper was the name Theodora Durant. the young dental student whomade the appointment with Miss Williams, tha murdered girt, last nighc. The police hava as yet made no arrest, and the doubla mystery Is puzzling the whole city. Miss Williams was not a servant, as aS first stated. Her parents had separated, and as her mother could not support her, the girl was living with f Rends, who kindly gave her a home until sho could secura employment. o f SAFETY GATES WERE IN YAIft. Two Little Girls Struck by a Train, and One Instantly Killed. Bethlehem, Pa., April 13 A frightful accident occurred to-night on the Phila delphia and Beading Railroad at the grada crossing which separates Bethlehem from South Bethlehem. As the Philadelphia express was pulling out of tlie depot IS struck Eottie and Annie Applegate, two little girls who were re turning from tha Easter festival. Lottie, aged six years, was decapitated; her sister, who is a few years older, had her skull fractured and was terribly cut and bruised. Shecanlivebutafewhours. The crossing has safety gates and a watchman, but this did not prevent tha children from being run down. s Loon Waters to te Brought Sere.

Contrnet for tho Torpedo Boats. Secretary Herbert yesterday decided to award to the Columbian Iron Works, of Baltimore, the contract for building three torpedo boats.
