IW.T in the of tb" the Iruttoa of the alarai Irvx and in f otsr IsiCu'-r iiad dence Hospital. His death has been ex- pected lor several days, but while there 'was still a chance for his life, physi- cians thought it ad- visable not to per- mit him to make an ante-mortem state- ment of the circumstances surrounding the shooting. He died therefore with- out making any statement, and the case against Kincaid will rest entirely on testimony of himself and two eye-wit- nesses of the tragedy. One of these was Samuel Donaldson, of Tennessee, for- merly doorkeeper of the House of Repre- sentatives, who has refused to make any statement for publication. Donaldson was with Taulbee at the time the shoot- ing occurred. The other witness was a Iwy who can not be found. The stories of the shooting differ in one important particular. Kincaid and Taulbee had had an encounter in the corridor adjoining the hall of the House of Representatives. It was said just after the shooting took place that Kin- caid had armed himself after the first encounter- with Taulbee, and, seeing him going down the stairs that lead to the basement, ran after him, called to im and, as he turned, shot him in the ice. Kincail claims that he armed imself in fear of danger from a further ncounter with Taulbee, that Taulbee ad warned him to arm himself and hat Taulbee insulted and attacked him n their second encounter, rendering in his opinion resort to the pistol a neces- ity. The theory of self defense will >e set up by Kincaid s lawyers. As soon as the news of Taulbee's .eath reached police headquarters an officer was sent to Kincaid's room and le was taken to the polico station, where he now is. Mr. Taulbee was eminent in debate 'or his fluency and vocal power, gifts which were aided in their effect by his uperior stature. Mr. Taulbee's home was at Saylorsville, Ky. He was born n Morgan County, that State, October and was educated in private country schools. The three years be- tween 1S75 and 1873 were spent by him :n preparation for the ministry; during ;he next three years he read law. His Irst election to Congress was in 1584. Ky., March Kohn, the noted criminal lawyer of this city, and Judge Hargis, the well-known jurist, have been engaged by Kincaid's Kentucky friends to defend him in his trial. March building on the toutheast corner of Third Vine streets owned and occu- pied by Stern, Mayer A Co., one of the wealthiest clothing manu- facturing firms in' this city, was com- pletely gutted by fire early Tuesday morning. The loss is estimated at 000; insurance The alarm was turned in a few minutes after one o'clock by private policeman who saw a glow in the third floor windows, but before the firemen reached the ground they round a red hot building confronting them. The place was completely en- closed by a network of telegraph wires, causing some delay in getting a stream to the places were it was most needed. Across the street the sudden bursting of flames, clanging of bells and shouts of firemen created consternation in the Burnet House, and hundreds of guests came pouring into the corridors seeking Took by Force.

O., March wire nail men of the United States, with few exceptions, have closed their mills and announce that they will not resume operations again until the 24th inst., but that they will open then is not cer- tain, as their object may not be accom- plished. This shut-down is, it is al- leged, part of a scheme to force certain manufacturers of wire nails into the trust which has been forming for some time, but which may fail on account 01 the refusal of the independent factories to join the combine. Heroic measures are now to bo attempted, and all the mills in the country to the trust shut down Monday, throwing thousands of men out of employment Both the mills in this city joined the movement._______________ INCREASING THEIR DEBT'.
