A Mother and Son Cat to Pieces -by an Infuriated Es- cape of Three GirK BLOCKED THE TRACK. Terrible Battle la the Culmi- In tbe UUcovery of the Murder- Corpie With a BuUet la His Brain. ST. PAUL, Minn., Dec. horrible tragedy occurred near the town of Car- lisle Saturday night. Carl Rehrei a German, sixty years of age, lived in Wilkin County, about twelve miles from this city. His family consisted of a wife, aged son Henry, twenty-five, and three daughters, aged twenty-two, sixteen and fourteen. A few weeks ago, a violent family broil, Rebrerquit tbe house and went to live in Elizabeth, a town eight miles distant Saturday he returned home about nine o'clock in the evening. After greeting his family he stepped into a room at tho back of the house and a moment later appeared at the door with a self-cockinop revolver in each hand, which he leveled and began firing. After wounding his son, eldest daTijrh- ter and wife the lamp was extinguished by one of the bullets. The entire fami- ly made a rush for the door, hoping to escape in the darkness. Rehrer dropped his revolver and drew a huge carving knife with which he fatally stabbed his son. The three daughters got safely out of the houso and hid themselves in the outbuildings. Rehrer then turned on his wife and stabbed and hacked her full of holes, any one of half a dozen of whioh would have been fataL When the neighbors attracted by tha noise arrived they found Rehrer dead with a bullet in his brain and a rope around his neck. He had thrown the rope over a beam and put the noose arounfl his neck and as the nooae tight- ened had blown out his brains. The eldest daughter will probably recover, though her wound is dangerous. Ex- cept the frequent quarrels in the fam- ily, there was no known cause for Reh- rec's action. The tragedy was one of the most horrible as well as inexplicable in the criminal annaU of Minnesota.

K-cord Kept of tfie Notes Which the Government is Respon ible. foi A PENSIOH PROBLEM. The United Treasurer's Annual Re. port to tbe Quantity In Circulation to be Only GueMWork. NKW YORK, Deo. Washington special to the Daily News says that one can form an intelligent idea of the Yolurae of paper currency to-day in cir- culation. The Treasurer of the United States purports to give each year an ex- act and detailed statement ot the exist- ing condition of the finances, but the Treasurer has no exact data upon which to base his report and consequently it is defpc'ivo aid unreliable. There is not to be found in any bureau of the Treas- ury Department any record of the notes or certificates for which the Gorern- ment is responsible, and the Treasurer's t is consequently- nothing more than guesswork as to the volume of pa- per really afloat. He can not say of his own knowledge how many notes or sil- ver certificates of the several denomi- nations authorized by law are outstand- ing, sor can he give the precise aggre- gate amount. The way the Treasurer arrives at the amount of money afloat is by deducting the amount of currency destroyed from the acrerejrate amounts paid out by the Government This would appear to be correct, but it is fatally defeotlye be- cause he has no means of knowing that there are no duplicates of the notes de- stroyed either in the Treasury Depart- ment or In the hands of the people. It may be assumed that there are no dupli- cate notes afloat, but assumption can not be accepted as a basis for banking operations. The only way tbe Government has of knowing that there Is no duplication of notes is by obtaining: from the contrac- tors who furnish the paper a sworn statement of the number of sheets sup- plied the Bureau of Engraving and Printing and then deducting the num- ber destroyed in the press room and adding to this number tbe number of sheets ot printed notes rceaived at tbs Treasury Department These must balance with the total number of sheets furnished by the contractors.

Some ot the bffloial minds of the Pension Bureau are bothered to know what to do with those that were wounded while in the Confed- erate service. The only restriction that the act of June 27, 1390, makes, is that the disabilities must not be the result ot the soldier's own vicious habits. But Little Wlh be Done This Week by Congress. A Crii!
