Tho Hoard of Immigration of Florida has taken in hand tho difficult problem of supplyiug domestic servants to house holders in that State. They havo agreed to supply 1,000 servant girls with places iu that State at wages ranging from $6 to $10 per month. These girls are to come from Norway and Sweden. That there might be no hitch in the arrange ment, the board has asked the Secre tary of the Treasury if there are any provisions of the Alien contract labor law which will prevent tho girls from coining into this country. The board explains that no contract is made in ad m vulc?, and that the law excepts domes " tie . servants from its operation.

His death h as been ex pected for several days, but while there was still a chance for life, the physicians thought it advisable not to permit him self to make an ante-mortem statement of the circumstances surrounding the shooting. He died, therefore, without making any statement, and the case against Kineaid will rest entirely on the testimony of himself and two eye wit nesses of the tragedy. One of these eye witnesses was Samuel Douelson, of Ten nessee, formerly Doorkeeper of the iiouse or uepresentatives. wno nas re- fu tion the time tho shooting occurred. The other witness was a boy who cannot be found. The stories of the shooting differ in one important particular. Kin eaid and Taulbee had had au encounter some time prior to the shooting in the corridor adjoining the hall of the House of Representatives, on tne east. It was said just after the shooting took place that Kineaid had armed himself after the first encounter with Taulbee, and seeing him going down the s'airs that led to tho basement, had run after him, called to him, and, as he turned, shot him in the face. Kiucaid claims that, he armed himself in fear of danger f rom a further encounter with Taulbee; that Taulbee had warned him to arm himself, and that Taulbee insulted and attacked him on their second encounter, render ing in his opinion resort to the pistol a necessity. The theory of self-defense will be set up by Kincaid's lawyer. As soon as the news of Tauibee's death reached police headquarters, an officer was sent to Kincaid's room. He was awakened, and after he had dressed, was taken to the police station, where he now is. The inquest will take place to morrow. Aaron Kohn, the noted crim inal lawyer of St. Louis, and Judge Har ris, the well-known jurist of Kentucky, have been engaged by Kincaid's Ken tucky friends to defend him in his trial.
