He said his present wife had a child four months after marriage. On cross examination the witness contradicted himself once or twice, but not on material points. The rest of the defense consisted of evidence showing friendly relations be tween Lomsdalen and his wife and ex pert medical testimony to show it was impossible that strychnine should have been the cause of death. The charge of Judge Baxter bore heavily on the ex pert testimony, which, he regretted, always leaned toward the side by which called, and so lost the weight it might have. The charge was brief, but was considered to be against the prisoner. The jury went out at 5 this afternoon, and brought in a verdict of not guilty before 6.

All Parties Agree That Malie toa Shall Become King Again. v King Humbert of Italy Is Royally Received on His Visit to Berlin. • Berlin, May 21.— special corre spondent of the Associated Press here was informed this evening that Ger many has finally consented to restore' King Malietoa. This action was taken' finally after '* prolonged -i and persistent efforts on the part of the American commissioners. But now comes another hitch in the negotia tions. This fresh difficulty grows out of the claim for indemnity • made by Germany. The American sec tion of the conference holds that if any indemnity is paid it must be a merely nominal sum. Germany, on the con trary; maintains that in the conflicts be tween the German forces and Samoans, the. latter were invariablo the ag gressors. Besides the native partisans of King Malieola were guilty of the bar barous practices of beheading German sailors, as well as Inflicting upon the wounded particular cruelties. These acts, Germany insists, should entail upon Samoa the payment of * special indemnity. Earnest efforts are making in committee to settle tbe. dispute, but the matter is very likely to require a reference to the plenary conference. London, May ; 21.— The Post's Berlin correspondent says tbat - the Samoa pro tocol in its final form will contain two chief points. The first of these relates to the government of Samoa, which will be arranged on a tripartite basis, Eng land being accorded a position corre sponding in a certain sense to that or arbitrator. The second deals with the appointment of a land commission. England is to have a large influence in the selection of the supreme judicial functionary. HUMBERT HONORTD.

Washington, May ■ 21.— Among the odd requests contained .in the mail of Robert P. Porter, the new superintend ent of the census, was one to-day that eclipsed "anything yet received.; It sim ply asked Mr. Porter to share equally the salary of his office with the writer, who said that the ; president ' had evi dently intended to appoint him : to the place, his name being the same as that of the new superintendent. . In support of his view of the case the writer volun teers the ■ information that he comes from Indiana and that be served in the . Sixty-ninth Indiana regiment, and that, therefore, there can be no mistake as to his being the Robert P. Porter desig nated as superintendent of the census by the president. He is willing to waive the .; honor of the office, however, if given half •- its emoluments. Supt. Por ter •*. replied' to his correspondent in a serio-comic • vein. A well known ex pert, he wrote, had • stated that \ the superintendent would be compelled to do #20,000 worth of work for #6,000 sal ary. :a His i Indiana :; namesake . would, therefore,' see how great a . sacrifice the division of the salary would be even with oue who bears the same name.

BLOODSHED PROMISED An Ominous Quarrel Between the French and English Over the Fisheries. A Great Deal of Talk, Which May Result in Some Fighting. A Virginia Barrister Fatally Shoots Himself With a Revolver. A Tennesseean Carefully Re* moves His Clothes and Then y; y Hangs Himself. Halifax, N. S., May 21.— Advices from Bay St George, X". F., represent that the relations between the "New foundland and French fishermen in the disputed French shore are reaching a crisis. The commander of the British) war ship Lily has issued a proclamation' to the effect that he would not permit Newfoundland fishermen to set their nets to catch herring, and. if they did so, he would confiscate their nets. An indignation meeting was held at which strong language was used.! Rev. Dr. Howley, the prefect apostolio •f the west coast of Newfoundland, told the commander of the British war ship ' that he was there with the apparent mission of . protecting th- French in stead of the British interests. Tha commander replied that be was carry ing out bis . instructions from the im perial government and added that ha took but little stock in the inhabitants or in the Newfoundland government. The proclamation, which was posted up in public places, was quickly torn down by the infuriated ' people. St. George's bay is the ereat herring fish ing ground. There are about two thous and people there, who live almost en tirely by catching herring and export* ing them to Canada. The French are given concurrent rights by the treaty to that part of Newfoundland, but claim exclusive jurisdiction, and now thai they can get bait in other portions of . Newfoundland, they are asserting their claims of ex clusiveness over Bay St. George, and supplying themselves with bait there. This prevents the British inhabitants from getting fish, which would of course interfere with the French, and the Bri*' tish war ship there prevents any inter ference. The people threaten to usa rifles to enforce their rights. They say they will either do that or abandon that portion of the British empire to tlnj* French. Bloodshed is predicted. SCARCELY A JOKE. A Virginian Charged With Mart der Kills Himself. JQB .: Gloucester, Ya., May 21.— Joshua F.Ross, a well-known lawyer? and Re publican . politician, who. was on bail" awaiting a second trial on the charge of killing his uncle, George Hughes, shot himself this afternoon and' is now dy ing. He went : up to A.- C. Rigney' room, in the hotel in that place, and woke Rigney up by shaking him. Rig- I ney was lying on the bed, with coat and vest off. He had a pistol in bis right hip pocket. Ross took bold oP the weapon, and Rigney told him to let . go. Ross said, "You will let me have it." Ross then drew and cocked a pistol and pointed it at Rigney, saying: "Old friend, who shall go first, you or l?*"' Rigney thought it all a joke,' and told him to kill either he chose. Rigney lit a cigarette while they talked, and Ross sat in a chair near the head of the bed. Ross then put the ..;.-i..i **. 1.;.. .i i.^...i _ ._] «:,.., .1 pisiui iv . ins own Menu aim men and immediately fell forward, and his head rested on the bed, and he breathed heavily and then fell to the floor. Rig ney ran down for assistance. The hair was singed by the discharge of the pis tol, and the brain oozed from the wound. .*- Tire pistol is a 38-caliber. Ross is said to have been drinking heavily for some days. He was up late last night, and was very melancholy. ENTIRELY WITHOUT CLOTHES A Tennesseean Disrobes Before . Hanging Himself. Jonesboro, Term., May 21. — The body of James May was discovered this evening hanging from a tree in the woods east cf town. May was about fifty years age, a plasterer by trade, and the father of a large family. He has been drinking unusually hard for some time. Last Thursday, he purchased a piece of rope, and was last seen on that day. As he did not return Home.his fam ily became uneasy," and fearing he might fall while under the influence of whisky, his son, together a with son in-law, James Vaughan and Mr. Young, began a search through the woods where he was last seen. . They were horror-stricken by coming upon his body in an advanced stage of decomposition, entirely naked, with his hands behind his back, hang ing from a tree, while near by were his "clothes, boots, etc.; carefully folded; and on top of them lay his hat, with a bottle about half full of whisky. Every thing goes to show that it was a most caretully and coolly arranged suicide. .A Town Under Arms. Little Rock. Ark..
