It would 111 become a repub lican house to take action upon n free coinage bill before this ehnrgo Is determined , nnd should it bo sustained n republican house could not afford to pass n free colnngo meas ure oven though all of Its niembors favored the principles the measure involved. It Is therefore likely thnt the house committee on colnngo , weights and measures will take under serious consideration the senate bill till n report Is made by the silver pool inves tigating committee. This may not bo under some weeks and there remain but six wcoks of this congress beyond next Wednesday. As stated heretofore in these d ispatchcs , the house , If It passes nny kind ot silver bill , will not adopt tbo one passed by the sonata , and ultimately u conference committee will bo asked to settle tlio dispute. It is not at all probable thnt Vlco President Morton nnd Speaker Heed , who nro both opposed to free coinage , would appoint conferees who would agree to an un limited coinage bill , so It becomes more nnd moro "apparent every day that If there Is legislation upon the suojcct It will bo free colnngo for American silver only. The re- publljans who nrourglne unlimited colnngo aro-largcly mndo up from two classes these who believe tboy can place the president la nn embarrassing situation by being presented with a free , unlimited coinage bill , and those who want to cause a temporary Hurry In the bullion market and unload their holdings when the prices nro up. The indications nro that both classes will bo disappointed. A XUltTIMjKX CUTICLE. It AV1II Cloilio the Muscles of Sir Knight ] ) lekers ii. CmcAoo , Jan. 17.

" Tha't is the way the police register reads Blnco young Ford , who shot Dovaney Friday night , has been taken to the county Jail and his hearing in police court Is post poned until January SO. The hearing has been postponed to await the result of Do'vauey's Injury , Yesterday afternoon nt1 : ! )0 ) young Ford , nlong with several other Jail birds , was taken to the county jnll and as ho Is nn ugly man to han dle the Jailor ordered the handcuffs put on him. This aroused Ford's bitter denuncia tion and ho proceeded to swear at and vllllfy everybody about the Jnll. Patrick ForJ , sr. , visited tno Jill to see his wayward son. Ho was very much affected and tears were scon to trickle down his ruddy chocks. "Why don't you bring mo something to cat , " said the young man to his fnther. " 1 can't cat the grub they give mo in hero. " "You ought tiover to have got in hero. I think you got about ns good as you deserve , " replied Patrick Ford , sr. "What did you come down here for ! " re torted the son , looking at his father savagely. "Why didn't you stay at Lincoln. You needn't ' talk any more. You can go to h 1 for nil I caro. " When the patrol reached the county Jail young Ford broke out in anothnr paroxysm of profanity because ho had been compelled to wear handcuffs. Ho seemed ns utterly In different to Impending punishment as though ho were the most innocent man in Douglas county. Ho has retained Hon. M. V. Gannon ns his nttornay. Judge Hclsloy refused to permit young Ford to furnish bail for his re lease. Ho will have to stay in Jail until ho has n preliminary hearing at all events. William Dovnney , the man who \vns shot by Ford on Friday niqht. Is still alive , but is lingering on the borderland of the unknown world. Some shreds of cotton and woolen goods thut were carried In by the bullet were taken from the wound last night. Small hits of the underclothing were carried almost entirely through the body. It Is moro than probable that particles of the cloth may bo lodged In the lungs or in the parts of tbo body which were pierced by the bullet , and this will aggravate the wound and make the injured man's recovery even more doubtful nnd difficult than it would have been with only a clean bullet wound. A. STOCKMAN'S D12ATII. Ho Is Asphyxiated In His I'.ooin nt tbo Mcreliunt ! ) . Another victim of asphyxiation by gas was reported from the Merchants hotel yesterday morning. Friday night n man registered as "G. A. Carlsten , Oakland , " and asked to bo shown a room , paying m ndvonco for the same. Ho w.is assigned to a room and the porter claims that ho turned oil the gas , as is his custom , after the guest bad retired. About Oo'clockycstcrday morning the smell of gas was noticed and was traced to the room occupied by Carlsten. Ono of the employes ot tbo house entered the room ttirouuh the transom nnd found the gas turned on full and the room tightly closed. The man was lying in bed \ipon his back , with the bedclothes drawn over him. The body was cold , showing that life had oeun extinct some tlmo. TUo gas Jot was a slnglo burner chandelier , pendant from the ceiling and hung over the loot of tlio bod. The victim was a Dane , about thirty-five years of ngo , 5 feet 8 inches tall , weighed Laljoutono hundred nnd fifty pounds , sandy hair and mustache , with about a week's growth of beard. When found ho was at tired in n blue checked shirt and brown jeans drawers. Desiao the bed was a pair of dark pants , congress shoes and overshoes. On a small stand bcsldo the bed were a dark blue doublo-breasted reeling Jacket nnd vest to match. An opon-f acca gold watch and gold chain were attached to tbo vest. In the man's pocket was found a paper which established both his identity and hi.i business. It was a receipt from the railroad showing that Cnrlsten Itnd started from Oak- laud , Burt county. Friday , in charge of a load of live stock belonging to A. licckman & Co. of Oakland und destined to South Omaha. Numerous other articles were found In the pockets of the clothing , among them a memorandum of things to bo pur chased for the family at uomo. "Cheap shoes , No. 5 , for Mabel. " headed this list , showing that ho had njittlo daughter at homo. Among other articles were : | Checked gingham , calico , pie plates , cups , saucers nnd glasses , nud "No. 'M wrap or cloak , " evi dently for the wife. A bib for. the baby was also among the articles which ho was to purchase for the loved ones nt homo. In n purse in ono of the pockets was $21.50 In bills nnd sliver , n draft for $3 , a yj-callbro revolver , loaded , knlfo , kcyd , etc. The body was removed to Maul's under taking rooms , where the coroner summoned a Jury at 7 o'clock last night and viewed the remains nnd the room where Carlsten was found dead. The night clerk and ttio porter at the Merchants wcro called as witnesses , nnd stated that Carlston had been assigned a room , and about 9iO : ! the porter showed him up. Tlio porter further stated thnt ho had asked Carlsten if ho understood the use of ens und how to turn out the light. He said ho did not , but If the porter would show him ho could handle it all right. The porter then showed him how to turn out the light anrt told him to bo sure that ho left the gas shut oft. oft.'About fi o'clock the porter said ho smcllcd gas In the hall , and pushing open the transom where Carl sten slept he discovered tbnt the room was filled with tbo suffocating fluid. IIo called tno clerk and they broke In the door , finding Carlsten lying across tuo bed dead. The Jurv returned a verdict iu accordance wltu the evidence , to the effect that Carlsten came to his death from suffocation caused by illuminating gas whlcliho accidentally turned on and Inhaled In room 33 lu the Merchants hotel. Several of the relatives and friends of the deceased arrived from Oakland on the 9:15 : train last night to take charge of the remains. The deceased was a member of camp 007 , Modern Woodmen of America. Ho leaves a wife apd ono child. Those who came In from Oakland lastnlght to take charge of the remains were John Curlston , fnthur of the decasod ; Mr. A. Beckman - man , banker of Oakland , nud H. N. Hock , a merchant of the village. Mr. llockmnn said that the deceased was an honest , bard .vorklng fanner who never indulged in any sort of dissipation. Ho had como to Omaha with several car loads of cattle which Mr. Bookman was marketing. Carlstou had traveled a good deal and had slept many times In rooms where cas was used , but the cause of his death Is believed to have been purely accidental , for bis friends can think of no reason why he should take his own life. ll/VIDIU ) TIIK QAJIULHUS.

Its body is covered thickly with auburn hair , nbout two Inches long. It has two horns , a tail llko that of a cat and feet which are partly tike those of a man and partly like those of a dog. The birth of the phenomenon Is due , according to members of the Morris family , to n trivial occurrence some tlmo lu November , when a book ngcnt appeared at the house selling Catholic bibles. Mrs. Morris formed a violent dislike to the man nnd ordered him out or the bouse , tell ing him she would as soon have tbo devil In the house as a bible.

HoprosontaUvo Cnndlor of Massachusetts , chairman of the select committee on the world's fair , today the of the subcommittee presented to the nouso report committee that wont to Chicago to examine 1 Into the condition of matters there lu rela tion to the world's lair. The report thnt In the expenditure of public money tlio powers assumed by the world's Columbian commission produced confusion as well us caused unnecessary expenditure of puulio money which had boon Intended by congress to pay the expenses of the government cxhiult and not to p.iy excessive salaries to ofllccrs of the commission.

The report savs : ' Your committee is of the decided opinion that tlio fair cannot well bo conducted to a successful termination under the dual man agement which Is now In operation in consequence quence of the construction placed upon the law by the world's Columbian commission. Ttio commission has exceeded Its IHMVOM by th e appointment of officers and committees to conduct the management of tlio fair in Its executive dotnlls , which , In our interpreta tion of the law , belongs entirely to the world's ' Columbian exposition and Its oftlrcra. The commission was given n quasi veto pmWS ? nnd neb that of taking charge of the execu tion of the plans for tbo fair. From the fact thut the commission is honorary and without siilary the conclusion is reasonable that tlioir duties wcro not intended to bo exni/t hit ; or continuous , so that they would seriously Interfere with their private business. The duties of the commission may bo classed ns nfllrmutivo nnd negative , national and International , preliminary and continuous.

The committee renews IcS' opinion that tbo director ccneral and his om- ploycs should bo paid from the exposition fuads aud not from the government nppro- prlntlon. The report says it Is not the intorP tlon to recommend an Increase in the amount of money pledged by the government for the government exhibit , but It docs feel that a larger proportion than was originally con templated should bo made available immedi ately.

Witness had no personal knowl edge of any senator or representative helm ; engaged in tbo silver pool and never hoant any member say anything with regard to hU own connection with silver. Owen by men tioned some names which witness loft out in writing , Ills personal knowledge as to tlio conductor senators and representatives went only to the extent of an Interview. Stevens had n conversation with Colonel Jo.eph 1C. Kickoy of Fulton , Mo. Kickoy said ho bought silver while the legislation was [ lending and nindo some money , but not nearly so much as reported. Witness could not say whether or not Kickoy stated that hu bought silver in connection with others or as a private speculator. Stowell naked If Kickoy was n lobbyist.

Tanner of Illinois were brought out as having on boresay tcs- tlmonv some connection with the silver speculation. Witness had u conversation with Senator Stewart which , In witness" opinion , was confirmatory of some of the statements made to him. Senator Stewart said ho was not personally 'Connected wltli the slvor speculation , and witness added : "Hut I understood him to have personal knowl edge ol other people being connected with it. " Owenby said that pcndlngsllvcrlegisla tion , agents pf Now York bankers , broker * and silver dealers wcro in tlio hnblt of com ing to Washington and having conference * and directing the plans ofthelobby.

Among the names mentioned were V. K. Nowlands , who bought ox-Prosldent Cleve land's country place , und H. B. Parsons of Now York , cashier of Wells , Forgo & Co. The Investigation was then directed toward the conversations with Kickoy. Names were omitted. Kofcrnco was made by Kickoy to it resolution Introduced by n roprosontuttvo asking what ho was after , and adding that Smith , journal clerk of the houso. said to him ( Ulukny ) : ' 'Your friend ( mentioning n sena tor ) U going to get into trouble in connection with thu silver pool. " Then Kickoy went on to say why ho know his friend was not In it. Owenhy baa complained to witness that those with whom hu Was associated Iu tbo speculation hud robbed him. Witness would not llko to glvoiiamo3. Ho understood from Owenby thut th'uro was a number of different groups interested in silver speculation. Uach comprised eight or ten men and worked to gether for thu nurposo of ofTacting the most fuvornhla legislation possible. The question of requiring witness to glvo nainqs wont over for the present , George H Apparson , another correspond ent of the ( ilubu-Duinouritt , testified much to the same extent. Owenby had told him thut 'there was a silver pool and witness under- blood It to bo still in existence. Adjourned. Do in nor ut 4 Confident. PIKRIIB , S. D. , Jan , 17.
