In deference to the wishes of many of the republican members who returned to Washington this morning in answer to telegraphic ('alls. it was decided I hat the effort should be made to take up the tariff bill immediately in the house. This necessitated he displacement of tin' contested Vir-tinia election case, but is was the understanding thai it- postponement should be as long only as was necessary to dispose of the tariff bill, and that the republican member# should be held in line to secure action upon the Virginia election case, as well a-of the South Carolina case of Miller vs. Elliott, which it was expected could not be reached until late in the day.

The commissioner said step- had been taking looking to the formation of tin* sub-eompany; stock had been subscribed; Bradley Tanner , who sat at his desk) wa- secretary of the company. Tanner subscribed for one share of stock so a# to be able to act as incorporator, but no money had been paul in; the organization was, in fact, inchoate as yet. Tanner was a solut.e.y the only pension of-iicer employe interested in the company. The parent company and witness (who owned nine-tenth# of the district rights) were to receive payment for the franchise in spoo.ooi) worth of stock, but the arrangement had not. yet been certified. The interposition of Cooper’s resolution stopped the negotiations. The witness has withdrawn from the field and stopped it selling state rights until he could, by the erection of a practical working plant, show the value of the patent. Tanner was not expected to pay for his share, and the same wa# true of the other gentleman who organized the sub-company. A few shares of stock had been given them to enlist the use of tlu'ir names as was the custom in the organization of such companies. Mr. Lewis introduced a resolution setting forth Bradley Tanner # connection with the matter and stating that it is proper and competent for the committee to hear such testimony as will tend to prove the character of this enterprise and value of the stock. By a party vote the committee refused to adopt tho resolution. Adjourned. MURDEROUS INDIANS KILLED. **r Agency Shot >nt congress. lit the placing re** list he tone don, and hoped i by it# schedule.

[Sp**cial to The Hawk-Eye.] Guano Mound, la., Sept. 15.—Clinton county is again excited over its second double tragedy. Only a short time ago Henry Nurre and his wife wert' found dead in bed and to this day their murder remains unexpiated. To-day a more atrocious crime was com mi ated. resulting in the death of a newly married wit Ii young woman and in the speedy vengeance i upon her murderer. To give the cause of i the shooting would he to give the history of a love affair of several years standing. It. started three years ago when John Wk Levan and Miss Mollie Smith were attending school at Valparaiso, Indiana, There they fell in love with each other and became engaged. Soon after they separated for their homes, Mollie going to Madison, Wisconsin, and Levan to Chicago. Mollie soon after transferred her affections to W illiatn Langdon, ti man in her ow n city, and not long ago they were married and came to this county. Levan appeared here this morning and went, to the Langdon home. He rang the bell and when Langdon appeared asked to speak to his wife. His successful rival knew of the former love affair and of threats made by Levan since lie was jilted and at first refused. He finally consented, went up stairs, told his wife Levan wanted to speak to lier and went after his revolver, fearing trouble. As he was about to descend the stairs lie heard three shots and rushed down to see hi# wife lying with a bullet hole in her head and another in her neck. The third shot Levan had directed against himself. Langdon rushed up to him and emptied his revolver in his face. Langdon carried his wife into tin' house where she died foon after. Ile has been arrested and taken to Clinton. Both Mrs. Langdon and Levan were twenty-two years of age. Langdon i# a member of the well known finn of Langdon A Co., railroad contractor#, and ha# a contract for laying the double track of the Chicago aud Northwestern between Clinton and Cedar Rapids. He had established his headquarters at Grand Mound and with hi# wife boarded with the family of a man named Good. CAUSED A SENSATION. Madison, Wis., Sept. 15.—The tragedy at Grand Mound, Iowa, to-day created a profound sensation it, this city. Mr. and Mrs. Langdon were graduates of the Wisconsin State university and were engaged while at school. Later on they were estranged by a quarrel and Miss Smith went to Chicago. There she became engaged to Jack Levan, but on returning to Madison in the spring, once more met Langdon and discarded Levan. She married Langdon shortly after and the couple went to Iowa. Levan followed them there and the tragedy was the result. Beveil i# connected with a large firm of malt#ter# in Chicago. He and Langdon nearly had a tight several month# ago here. Mr#. Smith, the mother of tile murdered woman, is prostrated. The Dead Body of Robert Ray Hamilton Discovered Near Yellowstone Park. Helena, Mont., Sept. 15.—J. O. Green, son of President Marvin Green. of the Western Union Telegraph company. returned to Helena after a tour in the Yellowstone National park. Mr. Green says that August 2:id, while on his way into the park from the Union Pacific railroad, he stopped at the ranch of Robert Ray Hamilton, the New Yorker, whose trouble with his wife caused a separation a year ago. Mr. Green says Hamilton had bought tho ranch about two months ago and had made it an outfitting place for park tourists. Mr. Green on ills arrival at Hamilton’s ranch says that the owner had been gone on a hunting trip for five days. The next day Mr. Green and hi# party started to hunt Hamilton. About thirty miles from the ranch Green discovered his body in Snake river and hi# horse and dog a little distance away. Hamilton wa# identified beyond all doubt by Mr. Green, who had the body taken to the ranch, and who notified Hamilton’s family. Mr. Green has been in the park and was sur-prised that the above facts had not been published. New Yoke, Sept. 15.—No further particular# were received to-day concerning the death of Robert Ray Hamilton. His father, General Schuyler Hamilton, i# [(rostrated. He has received no advices other than the published reports. The remains will probably be brought east. The death of Robert Ray Hamilton terminal inc hi# suit against Evangeline Steele, alias Eva Mann, for annulment of their marriage. Hi# attorney said tin* litigation i# ended unless the father or brother takes hold of th** matter, in which ease the suit will be pushed, otherwise Mrs. Hamilton, who is now in tile Trenton state prison would receive one-third of the estate and the baby the remainder.

Ci:f.#-on Springs. Sept. 15. — It ha-been arranged that tho river aud harbor appropriation bill will be forwarded to the president immediately on being signed by the speaker. It is not likely tho public will lie kept in ignorance for many more days in regard to that measure. Speculation is about evenly divided as to it# prospects, those who are sure of a veto being about a# numerous as those who are confident of it# approval. The president said this morning, if the weather continues favorably and public business doe# not prevent, he will remain at Cresson until the end of next week. There i# every reason to believe the president is seriously considering tho advisability of calling an extra session of congress. It is known that several prominent republicans have advised such a course with a view to an earlier consideration of the federal election bill. Persons who have talked with the president say he will certainly reconvene congress if certain pending measures in which he takes great interest are not disposed of at this session. These include the antilottery bill, the supreme court bill and the land bill now in the senate, and the postal shipping bill now awaiting action in the house. The president is known to be specially interested iii the pa-sage of I he election bill and would probably feel justified in calling an extra session for the consideration of it and such others of important measures now pending a# may not be disposed of at this session.   __ Utah’# Population.
