SHOT eiSTRADUCER. I SENSATIONAL AFFM IN THE CAPITOL AT WASHMON. fex-Congivssman Toulbee Probably Fatally Injured by Charles E. Kincaid of the Louisville “Time&w— Tbe Trouble Caused by Slanders. Washington, Feb. 28 —Ex Congressman Taulbee, of Kentucky, was shot in the corridor of the capitol near the door of the house of representatives to-day by Charles E Kincaid, correspondent of the Louisville Times. Kincaid and Taulbee had quarreled, it is said, with reference to a publication made by Kincaid a year or more ago, and Taulbee, who is a six-footer, attacked Kincaid, who is a very small man, pulling his nose and making further assaults on him. Taulbee, it is said, was taken away, but made a second attack on Kincaid, who then drew a pistol and shot him, the ball entering tho head just below the eye. Taulbee regained consciousness and walked down the stairs and sent for a friend. He was soon after taken to the hospital. His condition is reported to be critical. KINCAID WAS ARRESTED. The shooting caused a great deal of excitement, house members rushing from their seats and gathering in groups. Taulbee was a member of the forty-eighth and fiftieth congresses, and was charged in the newspaper article with improper relations with a female employe of the patent office. This article was telegraphed to Louisville by Kincaid and it was a revival of the bitterness growing out of this that led to the event of to (lay. Kincaid is in the New Jersey avenue police station, near the capitol, a physi cal wreck from nervous prostration and is rocking to and fro while WW MOANS COMR FROM IHS LirS. Both men are well known throughout their native stale and this city and the occurrence soon stilled interest in all legislative matters at the south end of the capitol. The members forsook their desks and gathering in little knots drank in eagerly all the reports concerning the shooting. The Kentucky members immediately went to the assistance of their former colleague and had him carried to his homo. A call of the house had just been ordered shortly after noon to-day when the two men MRT FOR THE FIRST TIME since the trouble between them originated, about a year and a half ago, in the publication by the correspondent of a notorious pcandal affecting the moral character of the congressman. Kincaid sent in his card to see a Kentucky member of congress and wa3 waiting at the east door leading into the door of the house. Taulbee, who had a business engagement with Congressman McCreary and several ethers came out cf the house while Kincaid was standing in the out door way, and walking up to him said a few words in undertone indistinguishable to the door keeper. It is said THE LIU WAS PASSED The doorkeeper, who was in the act of closing the doors as is customary on the call of the houre, then noticed Toul-bte, who is a large framed and muscular man, grab Kincaid by the lapel of the coat and with a strong grasp held en. while he said: “Kincaid, come out into the corridor with mc.” The reports which How about the capitol stated that the excongressman had pulled the correspondent's nose or ear, but the doorkeeper who was standing there denied this Kincaid is a small, slightly built man, Buffering from illness and some nervous aiimtml. His reply lo Toulbee’s invitation to c me out into the corridor was: “I am in no condition for a physical contest with you. “I am unarmed!” Toulbce responded that he also was unarmed and the men were separated by friends, Kincaid calling upon an acquaintance from Kentucky to bear witness to what had occurred. The doorkeeper vainly endeavored to get the men out of the way so the doors might be closed, but was prevented by Toulb6e who declared he had a right to enter. Toulbee and Kincaid went their ways, the former into the house and the latter, it is supposed after the pistol, for, as he stated, he had none at the time. About 1:80 o’clock the members aud friends dining in the restaurant were startled by tbe sharp report of a pistol. They rushed cut aud soon there was an excited crowd surrounding a man holding his head, from which THE BLOOD WAS GUSHING in a steady stream, while another man was exclaiming that he had done the shooting. Taulbee, af Jer speaking some time in the house, had come out and in descending the stairway passed Kincaid on his way. The latter came after him. Toulbee had hardly reached the bottom wheu he felt a tap on the shoulder. He turned around, and as he did so, Kincaid, who had touched him from behind, tired without warning, the bullet entering on the right side of the right eye. Congressman Yoder, a physician as well aa a politician, and D\ Adams were near at hand. Under their guidance the wounded man was removed to his home. Kincaid made no endeavor to escape. Kincaid says TOULBEE HAD DERN HOUNDING HIM for more than a year past and several times insulted him He circulated stories that he was a coward and afraid to meet him (Toulbee ) These reports in his nervous state so overwrought him he hardly knew what he was doing. He also understood Taulbee threatened him with violence. To day he assaulted him and pulled his nose and ear and this was more than he could endure. THE SENATE, fore the people. On the contrary, the gapers have been filled with falsehoods, es and misrepresentations of a grave character, beauing on the merits cf the question. That cannot be accident. The press should not cater to the worst side of humanity even if it supplies its owners with a little more earth. Hr. Hawley said he knew the Associated Press performed it duty. It sent from Washington every day quite a full abstract of the proceedings of congress in both houses. Messrs. Hale and Hoar also spoke in defense of the press, the latter finding an excuse for the press in the habit of the senators and representatives of preparing long written speeches and delivering them to empty benches. Mr Blair said, however, there ie a demand for information which the press does not satisfy. There might be a provision made for a general cheap circulation of the Congressional Record. That provision has not been made. With regard to the Associated Press, he was glad to hear what the senator from Connecticut (Hawley) said, but had been told by responsible newspaper men that it was not true. The matter was then dropped. The senate then proceeded to the consideration of the bill reported from the committee on pensions on the 15th of January, granting pensions to ex soldiers and sailors incapacitated for the performance of manual labor and providing for pensions to dependent relatives of deceased soldiers and sailors. Mr. Davis, chairman of the committee on pensions, addressed the senate in explanation of the bill The annual expanse under the bill will be *35,908,000 divided among the invalid pensions, the increase of existing pensions, widows unpensioned, soldiers’ widows, pensioners’ widows whose claims are pending or rejected, children cf widows and children under the pending bills. Mr. Piutnb offered a substitute for the second section, under which no pensioner would receive less than $6 per month. Mr. Moody spoke against the substitute and Vest opposed the bill One of its inconsistencies was that a parent who could not support himself by manual labor, but who might by mental or clerical work earn 15,000, $10,-000, or $20,000 a year would be entitled to a pension under it. He also spoke of tbe unreliability of the estimates and said no man could tell within millions and millions of how much this bill would cost. It went over without, action. The house bill appointing two persons to represent the United States m the Madrid conference with reference to industrial property was passed. Adjourned until Monday. A TMI TOPIC.

RS QUESTION. Humors In K«gatd to a Satisfactory Settlement of tim Matter. Washington, Feb 28 —Nothing can be learned at the state department concerning the fisheries question, but outside tne department it is very well known that this government is in constant communication with the govern ment of Great Britain with a view of a settlement of the Canadian fisheries question and that it is also negotiating directly with that government and incidentally with the Russian government for an acknowledgment of the jurisdiction of the United States in the Behring sea. In regard to the former question it is understood the negotiations have proceeded so far towards a settlement on a basis satisfactory to both governments that the operation of a modus vivendi allowing Americah fishermen licence to purchase bait has been extended indefinitely without any documentary formalities. JHS HOUSE. Bill Til* Urgency Appropriation Passed. Washington, Feb 28—Af ter the reading or the journal. Henderson, of Iowa, moved that the house go into a committee of the whole on the urgency appropriation bill After three hours and a half was col slimed in the discussion of points of order the committee rose and the bill passed It appropriates $24,650,000—the largest item being an appropriation of $21,600 OOO for the payment of pensioners of the war of 1812 and the Mexican war. The remainder of the afternoon was devoted to the consideration of the calendar, but no bills were passed. The house then took a recess until evening, which session will be for the considera-of private pension bills. IOWA FARMERS SWINDLED. Tree Mew Indicted for Obtaining Promteearv Na tee on Fniee Representations Fort Dodge, lo , Feb. 28.—Indictments were returned by the grand jury against Dr Fuller, E F. Giberson and P. M. Keys for conspiracy to defraud a number of farmers in this vicinity. The alleged offense was in obtaining signatures to notes ia payment of orders for forest trees. A score or more farmers appeared as witnesses against the tree men. It is claimed that Fuller, who is one of the most prominent farmers in the county, traveled around with the tree peddlers and induced his friends to sign alleged orders, which were transformed into promissory notes by unfolding an invisible flap at the top. It is also claimed thai fraudulent representations were made by the tree agents showing that the trees could bo paid for out of the taxation, exemption being given farmers by the state on each acre of trees planted Among the complainants are W. H Wilcb, A. H. Wilkinson, C. H. Bragg, E. A. Swanson and B. S. Wilkinson, all well known and prosperous Webster county farmers. PIONEER LAWMAKERS OF IOWA Blair Complain* of Inenfflelent Accolated Pres* Deports. Washington, Feb. 28.—Senator Ingalls was elected vice-president pro tem., and will officiate during the absence of Vice-President Morton in Florida. Mr. Blair took the floor and said he had received a letter (one of many such) complaining that the Associated Press and newspapers of the country failed to give such reports of important matters of debate in the senate as would properly inform the people touching the affairs in progress. The letter in question referred to his educational bill. This, said Blair, is but a specimen of the general complaint throughout the country that the Press, to which the senate furnishes its priv-Associated Press, whose They Are Welcomed t# Dee Melnee by Jndge Wright—Officers Sleeted. Des Moines, Fab 28 —The Pioneer Lawmakers’ Association attended the inauguration ceremonies in a body yesterday and did not transact much business. Judge George C. Wright, himself a lawmaker of territorial days, delivered an address of welcome, in which, referring to the capitals of Iowa, he said: “I wel* come you not to Old Zion church at Flint Hills; I welcome you not to the Butler frame building in Iowa City, a mere hamlet; I welcome you not to the old- stone building in Iowa City, but I welcome you to a city of 60 000 people. I welcome you not to Raccoon Forks, or Fort Des Moines, in the old brick building erected by the liberality of the people of this city, but I welcome you to this city and this state, a state which has grown so marvelously in the memory of us all.” Officers for the ensuing quadrennial period were elected this evening. They were: President—Judge Edward Johnstone, Keokuk. Vice-Presidents—Colonel H. H. Trimble, Davis county; G. M. Davis, Clinton; B. B. Richards, Dubuque; L. L Ainsworth. Fayette; John Russell; Jones; Major Cramer, Wapello; Newton Guthrie, Warren; M- M. Walden, Appanoose; L- W. Ross, Pottawat-Rees, Webster; R. A. Secretary — A. R. Washington, Feb. 28 —A number of persons interested in postal telegraphy assembled this morning to listen to Dr. Norvin Green, president of the Western Union Telegraph company. Postmaster General Wanamaker, Attorney General Tyner and representatives of the differ ent telegraph companies were present. Dr. Green began his remarks by discussing the merits and demerits of the European governmental telegraph systems. He said that while in instances their charges were much lower than those in the United States, they were conducted at a loss. He presented a table showing that the domestic companies had eighteen thousand stations and handled over sixty million messages annually, as against fifty-three thousand stations and one hundred and seventy-three million messages in the rest of the world. The Western Union controlled ten-elevenths of this business. Its stock was held by 3,550 persons in the United States. Dr. Green believed that the United States government had no business with the management of the telegraph; it could not manage it cheaply; it could not do it better and none of the senders of telegrams had asked it. It was proposed to make a rate of one-half of the cost of sending messages, and the deficiency would have to made up by the fifty-seven millions of people who did not use the telegraph. Tne receipts of the New York office of the Western Union included $700,000 annually from pool rooms and sporting places. The large class of telegraph users were stock brokers and speculators. Were those the people who were to be protected? Were those the people in whose interest the people were to be taxed? If the government wanted to go into the telegraph business it should buy the lines outright. It should not try to fix losing rates for existing companies: that would not be fair to the stockholders of the Western Union. The government would need twice as many lines as were now in existence to do the business. Here was a scheme presented to go to four hundred and forty-seven postoffices where there was a free delivery and where there were abundant telegraph facilities. This was the way the postmaster general proposed to supply the needs of fifty-eight thousand people. This was the entering wedge of a movement to break down the present companies and estab lish a complete government telegraph, and against that he protested Dr. Green then made a comparison between the American and English telegraph systems and maintained that our rates were in reality, (taking into count tbe free ad dresses and signatures and enormous area of territory covered) much lower than the English rates- And yet it was proposed to reduce these rates arbitrarily still lower. It would require 21,-875 miles of wire to form the single connection of 447 places comprised in the postmaster general s plan, and to do the business practically would require’not less than 100,000 miles of wire. At press contracts the rental of this wire would be $3 600,000. Who ever undertook to do a telegraph business over this system would do it at a loss. In this country there were more telegraph offices than postoffices; in the older part of the country it was fifty per cent greater, and yet Great Britain owned both telegraph and postoffices Did that look as if the Western Union was not keeping abreast of the times? In North Carolina, the Western Union had telegraph offices that did not pay twenty-five cents in the gross receipts. At the 447 places named in the postmaster general’s plan as telegraph offices, the government owned but 104 postoffice buildings. It was becoming a grave question as to whether it now profited the Western Union to continue its contracts with the railroad companies. Originally they were sources of great revenue, but now the railroad business was increasing to such an extent that it was doubtful if the telegraph company (which handled their business free) did not lose by the agreement The chairman asked how much of their business the Western Union did in the free delivery cities. Dr. Green replied that about twenty per cent would cover it. That business was more largely speculative than the remainder of their business, as it would include the great money centers of the country. The chairman said that it was proposed to pay the operators out of the two cent charge for the postage stamp so he would like to know what the operating cost was. Dr Green replied that a close estimate placed it at three cents per message; in cases of long messages it ran up to nine cents. The average compensation of first-class operators was $75 per month. The chairman wished to know how the rates suggested by the postmaster-general compared with the present rates. Dr. Green replied that generally they were two-fifths lower. In the case of iong distance messages they were one-half lower. The average message was twenty-one words, including addresses and signatures. It was preferable to continue the system of free addresses to insure accurate delivery. Under the English system, where the address was charged for, the addresses were cramped, and messages frequently failed in delivery. To the broad question as to how the post master general’s plan appeared to him. as a business proposition Dr. Green said that of course it could be carried out, but the business could not be done by the government or a corporation at a profit; and somebody would have to make up a deficiency. Representative Crain wished to know why, if the bill was impracticable, Dr. Green and the rest of the Postal Telegraph company both appeared here to contend against it the attempt for a year and a half, finally agreed to only a slight reduction? It was because the receipts of the system lacked $100,000 of paying the interest on the cost of tne plant at thre3 per cent. Mr. Anderson referring to the postmaster general’s bill grid that it did not contemplate the payment of large salaries to officer* Dr. Green daily responded that if he wanted to do a telegraph business he would have to pay somebody to look after it, and pay them well, too. After all what mattered it, a salary of $50 OOO per annum amounted to a charge of about one tenth of a cent per message on the Western Union business. If the postmaster general’s rates were adopted by tbe Wettern Union, its receipts would fall just $3,000,000 below the expenditures every year. At this point the com mittee adjourned to meet to-morrow when Dr. Green will continue his statement.

I Capitol Building, > Des Moines, I*., Feb. 28 J It was ft queer action the house took this afternoon when it decided not to print the governor’s message and inaugural address in the journal. This is the only method cf sending out these documents to the public in a perminent form and it is unfortunate that in a mistaken idea of economy. If such action was taken. It would have cost only slightly more to have both put in and their j :ur-nal would have been complete. The senate showed it wanted to get to work to day. The members all set there and listened to reading by titles of 188 bills, and then took proper action to get the committees at work. It is well known that the first part of the session must be given largely to committee work and hereafter until matters get well in hand only morning sessions of the senate will be held. This will enable the committees to get af their work during the afternoon and will aid them materially A democratic joint caucus is called for next Monday night. It is supposed it will be secret and some plan will be formulated to try to defeat Allison; but it won’t go, as he is is solidly supported. Boies will probably be the democratic nominee.

This afternoon the roli-call for petitions was finished and all the members had a chance to present the wishes of their constituents The committee on journal reported and by a majority of one the house de cidect not to print Larrabee’s message and Boies’ inaugural address in the journal of the house.

Washington, Feb. 28—Secretary Windom has directed a lease to be made with the North American Commercial company of New Yofk and 8an Francisco for the exclusive privilege of taking fur seals upon the islands of St. Paul and St. George, Alaska, for twenty years from May I. The company will pay an annual rental of $60,000 for the lease of said islands and in addition to the revenue or tax of $2 laid upon each fur sealskin taken and shipped by it from the islands the company will pay $7.62£ apiece for each skin.

The members of. the two houses were not of the opinion that they ought to get to work at once after their vacation and were ready to go at it and get through. About all the inauguration visitors left the city last night and this morning, so after the rush and jam of yesterday matters settled down to the regular order and began to move smoothly. The first matter under discussion in tbe house was the senate resolution to investigate trusts. It came up as a senate message and provoked considerable discussion.

London, Feb. 28 —LaBouchere spoke ia regard to his motian on inquiry into the Cleveland street scandal which had been made part of the regular order for to day in the commons He alleged the case presented an official attempt to defeat the course of justice. He detailed the facts of the scandal and contended that a sentence    of nine months imprisonment for Veck was itself a scandal because of the inadequacy THE OHIO FLOOD. River** SAVED FROM INSTANT DEATH A* IaaUacn Where Freeze* of Mind Wa* of Bervie* Sioux City, Feb. 28—Yesterday morning as Lew Johnson, foreman of the ice gang at the Hankinson meat packing house, was working near the ice runway, his clothing in some manner became caught in the cable wire and he was whirled around with terrible velocity. The presence of mind of a companion, who succeeded in extricating him from his perilous position, saved him from an awful death. As it was his body was terribly bruised, an arm fractured and his clothes badly torn. THE CONQUERING HERO- of the punishment to tha offense committed. The treasury officials having full knowledge of the whole affair had refrained from prosecuting Newton and Veck until Sir Stevenson Blackwood, the secretary of the postoffice, had insisted upon taking action against his own subordinates, the postal employes involved. Then, finding themselves com Felled to prosecute these two men, the treasury officials determined to prevent the exposure from going any further and tried to hush it up. When Hammond fled to Belgium the police proposed to secure his extradition. There was no legal difficulty in the way of se curing an extradition but Salisbury, through the treasury official, wrote de daring he could not ask for extradition. Hammond being informed of the dange in Bdgium went to America, and in all this, as to information and otherwise, he was assisted through Newton, the solicitor for Lord Arthur Somerset. The object of the government was obviously to put I Hammond beyond the range of extradi tion When the chief of p dice reported to the treasury, the evidence in the hands of the police involving Lord Horn erset and others the treasury ordered the police to desist from watching the case, and Somerset obtained a four months leave of absence to enable tom to quit the country. But he did not quit the country, and Ln-ri Salisbury being informed of thi* through Sir Dighton Probyn stated warrant would be issued, but he caused the decision to become known to Lord Somerset’s commanding officer, through whom this information was conveyed io Somerset. Thereupon Somerset tied Somerset was not only allowed to resign his commission and leave the army as an honorable office*-, but at this moment he is still a magistrate for the two counties. The two men now in prison are poor and obscure, their highly placed confederate is un* molested. LaBouchere said the charge was plain enough. It was that Salisbury and others criminally conspired to defeat the ends of justice. Therefore he asked that the committee inquire into his allegation. Webster, the attorney general, said he believed that if the house would agree with him there was not a shadow of foundation for these disgraceful charges. It wai absurd to suppose Salisbury or the treasury officials could have an interest in tbe retarding of the prosecution of this case. In conclusion he srid he himself had direct authority to contradict the a'ietration that Salisbury had spoken to ary one legardmg the issue of a warrant La Boucher^ said he cauld not accent Wf beer’s assurance, nor did he believe Salisbury, whose denials were obviously untrue. The chairman ti quested La Bouchere to withdraw the wolds calling rto quests n the veracity of the premier. hi Bouchere declined a^d the speaker named him for suspension Tpon tbe division, the suspension carried by a vote of 177 lo 06. La Bouchere, in leaving, said he regretted the fact, but his conscience would not allow him to sav he believed the denial of Salisbury. J Cheers from the Parnell party ] Smith demanded that the house should express an opinion on the motion notwithstanding its withdrawal and should say the motion was improper and the charges false. The vote against La-bouchere’s motion was 163 to 80. Cold W«aiM*r May Chick th* Blea, Cincinnati. Feb. 28 —The indication .hat the flood in the Ohio river has a1-most reached its limit, is the colder weather and appearance of snow this morning A set off against that is th# report from up the river which shows that from Wheeling to Cincinnati the river is everywhere rising, and the worst of ail. at Marietta and Parkersburg there is a heavy rainfall to day! NOT SO BAD AS REPORTED Cincinnati, Feb. 28.— Wildly extravagant ideas of the extent and effect of the present tlacd rn Cincinnati prevail in some places. The fact is, so far the only serious inconvenience arises from ~ fliXkiiF g of basements and cellars in the busice&o and manufacturing houses that lie contiguous to the river. The fact tbat the approach to the central union passenger station is had through the old Whitewater canal caused the abandonment of tnat station when the water rtached fifiy-feet It also intel feres with access to some of the freight depots and intercepts freight irsffie to tnat extent, but no paesanger trains have been stopped STI l l RISING Cincinnati, Fen 28 —At ten o'clock lo night the river was fifty-six feet ard six aud one half inches aud rising at the rate of half mu inch per hour. Under the existing conditions the river at this point is not likely to reach fifty-eeven feet, and by to-morrow midnight will probably be stationary and by Sunday be failing All this la conditioned upon the exemption from heavy Tain in the Oaio valley uuriDg the next two or three day?.
