William Preston Taulboo, a Roprosontatlvo from tho Tenth Kontucky district In tho Forty-ninth and Flftloth Congrossos, who was shot in an altercation with Charles E. Klncald, tho Washington cor respondent o f the Loulsvlllo Times, In tho IIouso wing ol tho Capitol on the afternoon o f Feb ruary 2S, died this morning at flvo o'clock at Providcnco Hospital. His death has been expected for sovoraldays, but whllo thero was still a chanco for his llfo tho physicians thought it advisable not to permit him to make an anto mortem statement of tho circumstances surrounding tho shooting. Ho died, therefore, without making any statement, and the caso against Klncald will rest entirely on tho testimony of himself and two oyo-wltnesses of tho 'tragedy.' Ono of theso eye-witnesses was Samuel Donald son, of Tennessee, door-keeper of tho Houso of Representatives, who has re fused to mako any statement for publi cation. Donaldson was with Taulbeo at tho tlmo tho shooting octturred. Tho other witness was a boy who Is not to bo found. Tho stories of tho shooting differ In ono important particular. Klncald and Taulbeo had had an en counter somo tlmo prior to tho shooting In tho corridor adjoining tho hall of tho House of Representatives on tho cast. It was said just after tho shooting took placo that Klncald had armed himself nftor tho first oncounter with Taul beo, and seeing him going down the stairs that lead to tno basement had run after him, called to him, and as ho turned, shot him in the face. Klncald claims that ho armed himself In fear of danger from a further encounter with Taulbeo: that Taulbee had warned him to arm himself, and thatTaulbce insult ed and attacked him on their second en counter, rendering, in his opinion, re sort to tho pistol a necessity. The theory of selt-dofonso will bo sot up by Kin cald's lawyer. As soon as thoiows of Taulbeo's death reached polico headquarters, an ofticor was semt to Kincaid's room, ho was awakened, and after ho had dressed, was taken to tho polico station whore ho now Is. William Preston Taulbeo represented tho Tenth district of his State in tho Fortysninth and Fiftieth Congresses. Ho was eminent In debate for his fluency and vocal power, gifts which were aided j In tholr eilcct by his superior stature. Mr. Taulboe's homo was at Saylorsville, ; Ky. Ho was born In Morgan County, that Stato, October 22, 1851, and was educated In prlvato country schools. Tho thrco years between 1875 and 1S78 i wero bpent by him in preparation for 1 tho ministry, and during tho next threo years ho read law.
