TOOFFSETTHEDEFIGIT A Tax on the Incomes of All Incorporations, SUCCESSIONS AND LEGACIES One of the Most Favored Schemes Up to Date. WHISKY MAY GET A RAISE. Senate Rules to Be Amended to Expedite Business. THE PUBLIC DEBT STATEMENT. Washington, Dec. l.— The mpeting of the ways and means committee today was brief. Tlie estimates to be submit ted sbowiug the probable difference in revenue that would result from the new bill were not yet complete, and the committee adjourned until Monday to give Clerk Talbott and his assistants further time. The labor cf estimating the revenue that would be derived un der the new tariff bill is very meat, but it has progressed far enough to warrant the statement that on the basis of the Imports of 1892 the loss of revenue re sulting from the enactment of the new bill, and the repeal of the McKinley act, would be about 5G0.000,000 per an num. Of course, this estimate is on the supposition that the im ports under the new bill would be no greater than under the present law, a supposition which the Democrats by no means concede. It is the conclusion of Chairman Wilson and his Democratic associates that importa tions will be so stimulated under the new bill that the loss of revenue, de spite the radical reduction of.iuties.will not be over §35,000,000. This eh. 6cit it is now proposed to make up by a tax on the incomes of corporations, a l-;xx on successions and playing cards, and by increasing the tax on citrarettes aud perhaps whisky. Mr. Tarsney, of ti\fi ways and means committee, still clings to the belief that the deficit cannot be supplied without extending the income tax to individuals. ••1 don't think it can be done," said he, '-without making the tax on net earnings of corporations excessive Such a tax of 2 per cent would secure to the government not more than 6:25,000, COO, whereas the dericiency would be nearly ?40,000,0c0. 1 can't see how to bacco can stand any greater tax. If the rate on whisky is advanced 10 cents pel gallon, from that source there will be about §'J,U()0,000 more.which is still short of the amount required. One source o increased revenue that has to be developed is the stimulation of unporta tions that will result from the lifting o our prohibitive taritf. Doubtless tin will greatly increase our revenues, bu 1 hardly think we could get alonir with out help from tiie personal income tax Jf incomes of over §5,000 % were taxed a the rate of 5 per cent it would put int« the treasury over $7,000,000, and tha would give us sufficient revenue. Th coinage ot the seigncrage, as I hay beard suggested, would noi help th matter, so we are providing for a per manent support of the government." The Democratic members of tlie com niitlee on ways and means will mcc tomorrow afternoon to further conside the income tax and internal revenu schedules. There are still many rumor afloat regarding tlie intentions or" th committee in relation to the whisk tax, but the expressions of members o tiie committee give no reason for be lieviug that the increase will excee 10 cents per gallon, and some men bers think it doubtful whether ther will be any increase at all o liot. The subcommittee is debating vi advisability of making any increase i the whisky tax applicable to all whisk on hand at the time tlie new tariff la goes into effect. Senator Dulph, o Oregon, announces that when the ne revenue bill comes up for consideratio lie will present an historical addres for the purpose of proving that tl United States never had any prosperit except when there was a proteciiv tariff, and that from colonial days frt trade has meant debased labor. Representative Holniau said todaj •'There are practically three modes b which the delicit couIJ be nude up: B issuing bonds, and tl us increasing tl public debt; by an income tax, whic would realize from 650,000,000 to $75,000 000, or by a reduction of expenditure In regard to tlie bond issue, 1 do not be lieve any political party would survh a material enlargement of the publ debt in time of peace. I hope that th will not be attempted at this time, for nni confident that the great masses our people believe that the embarrass ments of our treasury is attributed, not to insufficient revenues, but an inde fensible and lavish expenditure of pub lic money. If the expenditures of our government aie kept up to the present rate, I think the increased revenue re quired should be provided by an income tax. It is a just and equitable method Df raising revenue. If the present democratic congress, which is now Wholly responsible lor the expend itures of the government, would go earnestly to work it would find no difficulty in reducing the expenditures ot the government so that the present late of interest revenue and proposed leduction of tarilf taxation would fur nish ample means to support the gov ernment and meet the requirements of the sinking fund. We cannot with honor aban Jon the sinking fund. It was not intended as a guarantee to the holders of public securities, but a solemn en gagement of congress to the people that the public debt should not be perma nent, but should be extinguished on tne reasonable basis provided by the act of ISG2, under which the debt would be paid otf within a reasonable period of time. Exemption from debt is one of the guarantees of frugal government, aim frugal government is the only guarantee we have of the perpetuation of our free institutions." TO AMKXD THE ItUL.ES BO as to Shut Off Windy and Dilatory Speeches. Washington, Dee. L— lf certain •eualors make good fifcrfr promises DAILY ST PAUL GLOBE. there will be a decided and earne effort at the approaching regular se siou to amend the rules of the senate s as to, in a measure, prevent resort dilatory tactics, and to provide for closing of debate. The delay in tl passage of the silver repeal bill had th effect incidental to most conflicts great length in the senate, arousing number of senators to the importance of a change which will place in the hands of the senate the power to bring any issue to a close at a definite time, and to make the majority the judge of the proper limitation of debate upon any subject. Senator Blackburn, chairman of the committee on rules, be came so impressed with the importance of a reform ot this character, that to wards the close of the extra session he asked authority, which was granted, for his committee to sit for the purpose of considering the question with the view of suggesting a course of action to the senate. The committee has held no meetings during the congressional in terval, but it is presumed that the sub ject will be tuken in hand at an early date after the convening of congress, as Mr. Blackburn has announced his in tention of taking up the question at as early a day as practicable. The com mittee will find abundant material to work upon when it meets, as there art; before the committee no fewer than nine amendments looking to the accom plishment of the end in view. Of these Senator Ilill is the autnor of four, Sen ator Platt of two, and Senators Voor hees, Hoar and Mauderson of one each. A majority of the resolutions provide I the closure of debate, and the others [ to the determination of a quorum, ator Hill displays greater in tst in tbeir object daring the special session than others, and he and Mr. Voorhees united upon the form of an amendment for closure, pro viding that a majority of senators can demand a vote upon any bill which has been under debate in the senate thirty days. Others of Mr. Hill's amendments look to the maintenance ot a quorum— one by authorizing the presiding officer to count Benaturs present who refuse tc respond upon a roll call, to determine the presence of a quorum, and another by authorizing the counting of senators paired and present on a vote, for the purpose of making a quorum, also seeks to prevenj, recourse to another method of delay by prohibiting senators from raising the question of lacK ot a quorum while another senator is speaking, and Id providing that the question of a iyum shall not under any cireum tio.vs be raised oftener tnan once an ir. M.Hiiderson's amendment is sim ply an amendment to Mr. Hill's pri> ited amendment concerning pairs, c amendments of Senators Platt and ar look to the closing of debate, but Fer in time and method from Mr. ll's surest ion in the same direction. Ir. Platt's amendment provides that »nthe written request of a majority jeuators, at any stage of debate upon any bill, the vice president shall fix a date for close of debate live days after wards; and Mr. Hour's tiiat after a bill shall have been under consideration for one day any senator may demand the close, and if he is seconded by a major ity of the senate the debate is to discon tinue forthwith, and the vote be taken after such senator shall have had an liportunity to speak once, not to exceed i hour. It is presumed that if any langes should be recommended by the committee on rules they would be on the lines indicated by these proposed amendments, as they cover about all the ground. Wiiii power to count a quorum, and to prevent the continued recalling of the role, the vice president would be in a position to expedite the consideration of any measure, and with the additional authority to fix the day of voting upon any giv»Mi measure, there would prob ably be no more ground for complaint of delay in that body. Those opposed to the changes argue that the complaint would be from the opposite direction, and that the country would soon come to have cause to apprehend more serious consequences trout hasty legislation than it now has from tardy action. If the question of chan;e contem plated should be taken into the senate by the action of the committee, the country may expect to see one of the no^t animated debates ever witnessed in that body. It is a subject which has been frequently before the senate, and is one which never fails to arouse the strongest antagonisms and many per sonal allusions and heated wordencoun- ters between individuals of thecontend iug forcea. It has been so from 1527, when, during the Twenty.-seventh con press, Henry Clay and Thomas 11. Ben tou locked hums over a threat of closure made by Clay, when Benton denounced the scheme as an effort at Sat: law. The question also came up on resolutions introduced by Senators Douglass aiui Underwood, in the Thirty first congress, for the limitation of dedate. and subsequently by similar resolutions introduced in the Thirty seventh coucress t>y Senator Hale; in the Forty-first by Senators llaiiilin and Wilson, and in the special session of the senate in 1573 by Senator Wright. Dur ing the Fifty-first congress, when the force bill was under consideration, reso lutions of this character were almost as numerous as during the extra session of tin: present contrress. It is noticeable that in all the in stances the elotuie resolutions were put in at a time when the senate was con sidering the subjects upon which the senate was quiie evenly divided, and upon which strong feeling was mani fested. It may also be observed that from 18-27 up to the present time the various questions have successively been disposed of, and that after they were out of the way, the interest in cloture and resolutions looking to pro vision for it have uniformly diminished in equal proportion. Whether this will prove the case in the Fifty-third con gress is yet to be determined. Tne senators who have taken an interest in the subject say not, and it is possible that if the subject has not sufficient vitality to revive itself, there may be other questions, such as the tariff, the federal elections bill, the internal rev enue and silver legislation iv different forms to revitalize it.

THE JESUITS ARE HAPPY, GERMAN REICHSTAG ADOPTS MOTION TO READMII TH-M. NEWS RECEIVED WITH JOY. American Jesuits Receive the Good News With Much Satis faction, Claiming That It Is Ac cording to the Wishes of All Roman Catholics of This Coun- i try. Berlix, Dec. I.— The Centrists In the reichstag today introduced a motion to readmit members of the Society of Jesus into Germany. Count Hopmesch- Ruenich, on behalf of the Center party, made a short speech in justification of the motion, Herr Manteuffel declared that the Conservatives, with few excep tions, would refuse the motion. Herr Morbach. Imperialist, and Heir Mar quardsen. National Liberal, stated that their parties would also oppose the mo tion to readmit the Jesuits. Herr iiol leuffer, German Conservative, said that he and some of his friends would ab stain from voting upon this matter. Herr Lote, Anti-Semite, said that he and his party would vote as they chose. Herr Schroeder announced that the Freisinniire party would vote against the proposition under discussion. The reichstag, by a vote of 173 to 136, adopted the Centrists' motion to readmit the Jesuits into Ger many. When the cheering over the result had subsided Mr. Lieber spoke, sayine that the Catholics adhered to the course they had hitherto followed, and that they would remain faithful to the emperor and to the empire, and loyally devoted to the fatherland. Dr. Lieber. after declaring that the Catholic church required the services of the Jesuits in order to enable it to discharge its divine mission, repelled the charge against the curia to the effect that it was pursuing a policy inimical to German national interests. Cardinal Rampolla, the papal secretary of state, continued Dr. Lieber, only recently declared that the holy see avoided all interference in the political organizations both of the dreibund and of the powers opposed to it. But, Dr. Lieber asserted, it it should ever occur that the holy see displayed an intention to pursue a policy friendly to the Rosso- French alliance, German Catholics would not allow their interpretation of the dogmas of papal infallibility to be so stretched as to deter them from ful filling their political duties to the Ger man people and to the German empire. No members of the government party took any share in the debate over the motion to readmit the Jesuits into Ger many. The debate was chiefly notable for the maiden speech of Herr Sigl, the editor of the Bavarian Catholic organ, and notorious ior tiie anti-Prussian ten dencies wliich have gained for him the sobriquet of "the Prussian Kiiler." He convulsed the house by savins that the recall of the Jesuits would not be dan gerous since, the deluge was sure to come soon and drown them, too. The vote will have no practical result. It has been fully understood from the first that the government wouid not ac cept the bill, and the Centrists in bring ing the motion to a vote only wished to prove their ability to command enough members to embarrass the government and to carry other points. ALL ARK PLEASED. Leading Germans of New York Are Pleased. New Yokk. Dec. I.— On being in formed by a representative of the Asso ciated Press of the action ot the reichs tag at Berlin today in adopting by a vote of 173 to 13G the Centrists' motion to readmit the Jesuits into Germany, Mgr. Farley, pastor of St. Gabriel's parish, was surprised and visibly showed his pleasure. "I knew," said he, "that this subject was being strongly agitated in Germany, but this is really news. The Roman Catholics in America, and especially the Germans, will receive this news with distinct gratification. I need not say that it will please the clemy of the Catholic church, and above all the Jesuits, to hear of the readmission of their order into Germany after the years of expulsion from tl.at country. This is one of the last acts of justice towards the Jesuits in Germany winch were begun when the present emperor ascended the throne. The per secution of the Jesuits was commenced in I^7o, after the infallibility of the pope had beer, declared, when Prince Bis marck betran to wage a bitter war against the whole Catholic church. One of the first or his battles was the im prisonment of Cardinal Ledochowski, one of the ablest men in the church, aud now prefect of the propaganda and very close to the pope in power. Cardinal L^dochowski was at the time bishop of Gnesen and Posen. Since the beginning of the reign of the present German emoeror the wrongs of the Jesuits have been gradually righted through his more favorable views of the situation. This subject is undoubtedly one of the points over which Emperor William and Bismarck quarreled. The emperor saw that the stand Bismarck had taken was a fatal one. There were 15,000,000 of very determined Catholics in Germany, while thousands ol" the parishes were vacant because Bismarck would not permit the appointment of pastors who declined to subscribe to his schemes." William Steiuway, one of New York's representative German citizens, was visited at his residence by the Asso ciated Press reporter. "1 am not much surprised," he said, on being shown the cable dispatch an nouncing the action of the reichstag. "1 am uot|a Catholic, but 1 have no re ligious prejudice. 1 hardly know what to think of it, but the vote would indi cate that the majority of the represent atives probably do not apprehend any evil effects from it. Bismarck, if I re member rightly, was the cause of the expulsion of the Jesuits from Ger many." "Do you think this subject was a factor in the quarrel between Emperor William aud Priuce Bismarck?" was asked him. "I do not think so," replied Mr. Steiu way. "The present empeior is a man of extraordinary mental capacity and knowledge, aud wanted to rule himself, and that was, iv my opinion, the chief cause of the break between him and the prince." "\Vnat will be the effect of the news on this side of the Atlantic?" queried the reporter. "There are as many German Catholics in the United States as there are iv (iermany, A proportion, of tuem, I be lieve, oppose the Jesuits. The majority, however, lam inclined -to think, wjHl; regard it as a sign of the settlement Hi the kulturkampf, or holy war, which kept the religious element out of the schools ana out of the state." .*. • The face of Rev. Father Campbell, of St, Francis Xavier's parish on West Sixteenth street, lit up with pleasure, on hearing of the Jesuit victory in Ger many. "It will be the cause" of much happiness to Jesuits throughout the German government. 1, and, of course, all Jesuits, can have but one feelinir on the subject— a feeling of satisfaction.; because our brothers in the order will again be permitted to return to their people, to teach in the schools, to preach in the churches, and once more assume their place among the German people. That is ali 1 could say on the subject, and in those few words my views and the feeling of all Jesuits are expressed." A MATRIMONIAL TANGLE, j Complications in a South State Divorce Case. Kimbat/l. S. D.. Dec. 1.— Something of a sensation lias been created here by news that the supreme court has af firmed the decision of the lower court requiring L. D. Bardin to pay tempo rary alimony and attorney's fees to his second wife, who is suing for a divorce. Mr. Bardin is an old settler here, and one of the prominent merchants of this place. He has two daughters here who are prominent in social affairs. His first wife died about four years ago, and about a year later he married the second in Troy, N, T., a Mrs. Osborue. He brought her here with him and in troduced her as his wife. They lived together almost a year, finally quarrel ing and separating, whereupon she began suit for divorce. Soon after the suit was begun Mr. Bardin went to New York and married a Miss llattie O. Guile and now lives with her there, and they have a son nearly a year old. Mr. Bardin's defense in the suit is that he was never legally married to No. 2, as she had a husband living at the time, from whom she had not been divorced. She claims that, while this was true.sbfc did not know his whereabouts and had not known them for several years, and under the New York law needed no divorce. The action of the supreme court indicates' that her position was well taken in the opinion of the court, and also indicates that she will obtain a divorce when the case conies to trial. Should she do so. it is understood that criminal proceedings will be begun against Mr. Bardin for bigamy. He is worth probably $30,000, and has already spent £5,000 or §0,000 in figbtine the case. One of tin 1 witnesses Bardin had here from New York two years ago to testify against Mrs. Bardin No. 2 has just been sued for divorce, and service made by publication here as his last known residence. _ GETTING V CLUE Of the Identity of Iron Mountain Robbers. Chicago. Dec.l.— Something of a sen sation occurredjdurins: the trial of a cas£ in the county court. . Nelson _A. Emer son, a sailor, who during the past sum mer had been mate of the small yacJrt Frolic, which sailed on Lake Michigan, said in reply to questions from Attorney. Prendergast that the boat had been en* gaged by a pleasure party from Cuicin uatt. The party took the boat at liacine and proceeded to Marquette, where a man named Ortnond and a stranger joined the party. Here Attorney Preu dergnst asked the witness: . .... ■ . ■. "Don't you know that a man was abducted from Cincinnati about this time?" •-• :V* "1 do not." was the reply. "Where did the man come from whom you did not knosv?" "From Cincinnati." "Where was the boat on the night nf the iron Mountain railroad robbery?*! was the startling question put to the witness. "At Houglrton," was the reply. Emerson testified that the party of pleasure seekers was uot on board that. night Attorney Prendergast, after the adjournment of court, said : "1 am not at liberty to tell what I know about the matter. But 1 have a theory that this yacht acted very sus piciously on its v.>yage to Northern Michigan, and lam of the belief that the boat was u»ed for the transporta tion of the robbers who are responsible tor tlie depredations carried on in Northern Michigan last fall." Further than this Mr. Prendergast declined to talk. Mysterious iMuitler. Coi/i.tnsvim.e, 111., Dec. I.— The hor ribly mangled remains of a man found by the side of the Vandalia track near VVednesday have been Identified as those of Alike Wasches, a .Russian miner, and he is generally believed to liave bepn the victim of foul play. The body baa evidently been struck by the limited mail, which dashes through Colliusville at lightning speed about midnight. Today, twenty yards from where the body was lirst found, was Dicked up a big butcher knife with a well worn blade. A close examination of the body showed deep knife wounds iv the body, head, neck and arm. The man had evidently been murdered and then placed on the rails. Anarchist Sentenced. PITTSBDBO, Dec. I.— Noel Maison, the French anarchist who waylaid and killed Mrs. Sophia lives, and brutally beat her husband, at Call mi tj. Pa., a lew months ago, was sentenced to death In the criminal court today.

Rates Low and the Commercial Demand Small, but the De mand for Speculative Purposes on the Increase — Volume of Trade Increasing, but Not as Much as Expected. New York, Dec. I.— R. G. Dun's weekly review tomorrow will say: It cannot be said that business during the past week has grown better or worse. For some days the gain in demand and in transactions, which had been pre viously noticed, evidently continued. But afterwards tariff uncertainties were thought to affect some branches of busi ness, and whatever the causes, the state of trade was less clear. Money was everywhere abundant, with rates comparatively low, and the commer cial demand was remarkably Miiall, while the demand for speculative uses appears to be increasing. The volume of trade has been increasing, and yet not as much as was expected, the change for last week showiuir a decrease of 3(5.5 per cent compared with last year, in part because the week covers only five business days against six last year. For two weeks, covering the same working days, the decrease has beeu 23.3 per cent. The railroad earn ings for the latest week of November show a larger decrease than for either of the preceding weeks, but in freight traffic alone the business was about the same as for the first half of the mouth. Wheat is slightly stronger. Western receipts being considerably smaller than in recent weeks, though exports are also remarkably small. Corn is un changed in price, with heavy Western receipts and large exports. Pork and hog products are practically unchanged, I veil as oil. Cotton is a shade lower, eceipls from Hie plantations con le to exceed those of last year, in c of the very positive estimates of a rt yield, anil the average of guesses operators in the New Orleans ex nge is over 700,000 bales greater ii the government estimate. The :ks of American cotton in sight are in so large that they retard any rise in puces. At present the iron industry shows no gain on the whole, "with the demand for pig Iron not urgent and Bessemer iron a little lower at Piltsburg, with no sales ot rails at me combination price, and with slightly lower prices for some fin ished products, and a rather scanty de mand for any. It is questionable whether the working force employed is larger than it was a week ago. The cotton manufacture enjoys a decided improvement, because the market was libsolute need of more goods, but :e is hardly any quotable change in es. The sales of wool are again :er than for the same week last year, Hinting to 6,C19,500 pounds, against 4,500 uountls last year, but part of the transactions are said to be specu lative in tueir nature, being based on the theory that whatever may happen later, the necessities of the country will compel a large consumption of wool I din the next few mouths, i hoots and shoes no increase in the king force is seen, and while East shipments are only abo.ut 9 per cent i than a year ago, the greater pro tion ot the works have orders only part of their capacity. ppareutly this country is paying off h its surplus products loans amount to many millions, which were effect ed in Europe to avert great disasters last summer, llence it is that the con dition of the treasury commands atten ti with its total casii reserve down to 000,000, and its available gold ouly 000.000. ailures during the past week mim ed - 2TB. against 330 tor tne same week , year, and in Canada 4S, against 33 ; year. Only four of the week's ures were of liabilities exceeding J.ooo. The returns of liabilities for preceding week show a large in crease compared with the previous week, and after deducting one large failure at Denver, of a street railway, the increase in all sections is heavy, and the aggregate of liabilities is nearly double that of ttie preceding week. INOi « . . ,IV. Decided 1-all ia Home of the A'jtive .Mocks. s t ew Tokk, Dec. I.— Bradstreet's ancial report tomorrow will say: A decided fall in some ot the active indus trial stocks supplied the chief specula tive interest of the week. The bearish operators were prompt to utilize the changes in tariff rates proposed by the majority of the ways and ineans'com mittee, the alterations in the sugar schedule, in particular, furnishing op portunity for h sharp and successful at tack upon American Sugar Refining, which declined about 14 points to 80. The movement ia the stock seems to have brought out lone holdings and the liquidation seems to have extended to other members of the same group. While, however, this action of Sugar and its companions in terfered somewhat with the assertion of bullish tendencies in the railway stock list, it did not suppress the disposition of the latter to cut loose from the in dustrials nor prevent the market as a whole from showiug a strong undertone. The market as a whole has been ex tremely professional In character. Even the selling of Sugar seemed to come mainly from such interests, while the few stocks, like Chicago Gas, which made any marked advances were ap parently influenced by clique manipu lation. .London took no interest at first, but at the close of the week the ad vance of Union Pacific is attributed to foreign buying, and moderate amounts of other stocks were taken for the same THE DESTROYER Will Soon Leave for Brazilian Waters. New York, Dec. I.— The- Ericsson boat Destroyer will have a trial today, and tomorrow or Sunday morning will start on her long journey to Brazilian waters, in tow of a vessel which will carry on her decks the farrow torpedo boat. The Destroyer took a short spin yesterday to test her engines and steer ing gear in anticipation of today's trial run. In the preliminary spurt the jets | were- experimented with. This is an •appliance; which ejects water, either from the port or starboard quarter, and is designed to maneuver the boat rapidly when it is desired to get her in or out of ranee. One test made yesterday with this . hydraulic steering apparatus showed its effective ness. Without causinz the boat to move backward or forward, the jets 'forced her stern to and fro, as if it were . • moved by '■■ some unseen giant hand/ This apparatus is cuutioUcd ami opei* ated from the small turret in which the gun is placed, and aids in securing rapid aim. The vessel which will tow the Destroyer has betn chartered, and is prepared to receive the Yarrow boat on her deck. It is now announced tliat the Destroyer will be taken only as far south as the West Indies by the towing vessel, and will then be turned over to the Nictheroy, which will tow her the rest of the distance. Then approach- Ing the Brazilian ports, she will be landed, supplied with ammunition, and turned loose on her own account. She will, however, remain in company with the Nictheroy as long as possible, using the dynamite cruiser as a base of sup- OAPT. BIERBACER DEAD. An Old Soldier Passes Away at Mankato. Special to the Globe. Mankato, Minn., Dee. 1. — Capt Wiliiam Bierbauer died at his home in this city yesterday. He was one ot the oldest residents in the state, coming here in 1855. In 1873 he built one of the largest breweries in the state,which he has since conducted. Mr. Bierbauer was born in Bavaria in 1526. He was engaged in the German revolution in 1848 with Carl Schurz and Gen. Sigel. In ISG2, when the Sioux massacre oc curred in this vicinity and New Ulm, he was chosen captain of the Mankato company, and rendered valuable serv ice during the critical period of the fight. When bullets were flying thick and fast from the Sioux riders Judge Flandrau, who was in command of the defense, said Bierbauer manfully main tained his position. Atter this massa cre Bierbauer organized another com pany for frontier defense, rendering valiant service under Judge Flandrau in the Southern Minnesota department. MAYOR'S LIFE THUEATENF.D.

BULLETS AND POISON USED To Hurry the Guilty Couple Into Eternity. REGISTERED FROM ST. PAUL. A Young- Man and a Married Woman the Parties. BOTH LEFT FAREWELL WORDS. Chicago. Doe. L— A dramatic double suicide occurred at the Virginia hotel early this morning. The dead bodies of Victor Cyrier, a you tie French drug clerk and of Mrs. L. E. Caron, the wife of a druggist In whose employ Cyrier at one time was. were found in the sama room by a chambermaid. The woman, who was several years the senior of Cyrier and a beautiful little brunette, had died by poison. Cyrier had shot himself three times, and died stretched across the foot of the bed in which the woman lny. Mrs. Caron and Cyrier had been at the hotel since Tuesday night, and were known as Air. and Mrs. Charles D. Lapointe, under which name Cyrier registered as from St. Paul. They had conducted themselves like persons of refinement, and were apparently very happy to scetker. This morning a chambermaid reported that she could not get into Room 441. The door was soon forced. Lying in the bed with her head on the pillow was the woman, her left arm ex tended toward where her dead lover waslyineat her feet, while the right covered her head. Across the foot of the bed the man was lying on his face. Both had evidently been dead for sev eral hours. There were no marks upon the woman's body, but let tes leffr in the room proved that she had takeu poison. Cyrier had shot himself once behind the right eye, again in the right side of the neck, and sent a third bullet into his body just below the heart. Two of the wounds were fatal. Four sealed letters were round in the room, one written by Mrs. Caron to her husband and the other three addressed by Cyrier to a relative in the city, to a druggist in whose employ he had latterly been, and to Miss Flavie Cyrier, Bourbonnals, 111., which place had been Cyrier's home be fore he came to Chicago. The woman's letter was as I'oilows: "To All: A last farewell to our dear friends. Life is no more a haupinesa to us. Vie is not to blame. We die here together tonight as true friends. Fare well, husband and dear little child. Hope you will remember your mother. A kiss to my little one. who has no mother tonight. So young without a mother. What will she do? "Mbs. L. E. Cakon." Cyrier left in addition to the letters several sheets of paper, on which he had written in the same strain as Mrs. Caro , saying in one place: "She died at half past 5 this morning. 1 can't write any more: 1 can't open my eyes." And in another something about the "same amount of poison," by which it was inferred that he had swallowed poison before shooting himself. Dr. Charles E. Cyrier, a cousin of th 9 dead man. said toniglit: "I am not surprised. Victor was a man who would not hesitate to take his own life. I got him his place with Mr. Caron about three years ago. He boarded with the Carons because Mr. Caron desired to trive him part of his salary in that form. Early last summer I noticed that he was paying too much attention to Mrs. Caron. I remonstrated with him, but he assured me he had too much respect for Mrs. Caron to compromise her. About three weeks ago Air. Caron found them together in a compromising situation. He tame to me and told me of it, saying he could no longer keep my cousin. Victor went away, and I did not see him ,again until Sunday night, when he came to my house. He said that he knew Carou was looking for him, and said he was ready to be found, at the same time diplaying a revolver." NEW YORK BANKERS Arraigned and Make Their I'lead ings. New Yokk, Dec.
