Washington. May 5. The Wes.ern
members of the house are preixiring to
make a strong stand for the re.isntioii
of the duty on hides rn the tariff bill
If that feature Is adopted by the senate.
There was a strong sentiment In favor
of protection for hides tn the house
when the bill was before that body, but
no opportunity was given the house to
vote on the question, a vote being per
mitted on the amendments only which
were proposed by the ways and means
committee.
In the committee Itself the propor
tion was made to put a duty on hide
when the Dlngley bill was in prepara

jority of only two votes. With such a
narrow margin against a duty on hides

FCRTHEll DETAIL8.
Of the Paris Horror, Which Loes None
of Its Awfulness.
Parts, May S. At 7 o'clock this even
ing officials announced that St corpses
had been positively identified as the
victims of the terrible disaster of yes
terday, and that there are still 19 bodies
unidentified.
Terrible scenes continued to be en
acted at Palais de L' Industrie this af
ternoon. The mother of a four-year-old
child, Alfred David, one of the victims,
arrived during the day for the purpose
of taking the body away with tier. It
was decided, however, that it was un
advisoble to show her the ghostly re
mains of her child. When this was
communicated to the unfortunate moth
er. in a paroxysm of grief she tried
to fore; her way Into the mortuary
hall, screaming, "I will see my child."
It was found necessary to forcibly re
move the poor woman, wliose cose is
one of the most distressing. It appears,
that Mme. David lost her husband a
month ago. and that her only other
C.illd died a fortnight ago.
