It is said that a resolution had heen drawn up and was ready lobe introduced directing the speaker to sign the river and harbor bill at once, but this was riot heard of until tho bill had been signed, when it was said the speaker had just saved himself from a humiliating experience by his action. Speaker Reed said last night he thought congress would adjourn about October I. lie was asked what measures would be disposed of in the meantime. He answered that he could easier tell what one should be disposed of. He had in mind the election bill. Tin* only measures that stand any show, aside from the tariff and election eases, are the shipping and ButU-rworth options bill. It i" no likely the resolution relating to the redistricting muddle in ohio will be passed, owing to the failure to obtain a quorum of republican members. THE SUGAR SCHEDULE. A Question That Will Bother the Tariff Conferree*—The Bounty Question. AN Asiiixt. ion, Sept. I".—The confer-rees on the tariff bill appointed to represent the republicans of the house are said to be strongly in favor of the reciprocity amendment proposed by tho senate. There is no difficulty anticipated in coming to an agreement on the Aldrich proposition on that subject, but there will be trouble over the sugar schedule proper. One of the probabilities is that the senate and house may have an opportunity to vote independently on the sugar duties again. In advocates of No. 13 as the of free and dutiable that the house will senate by a large majori-diflorence of opinion be-confcrrees will be re ways and sugar pro-a pound in that same - in Wash- Interesting1 Developments in Bevan-Langdon Murder.

It is simply a scheme to checkmate state publication, and it will doubtless be successful. But very few counties in the state will adopt county uniformity. In order to do this it is necessary that a petition asking for tho same be signed by one-half of the directors in the county, and tiled at the county superintendent's office thirty days before the annual election iii March. NY (thin fifteen days after filing the petition, the county board of education, consisting of the county superintendent as chairman, the county auditor as secretary, and the board of supervisors, will meet and provide for submission of the question to the vote of the people.

There is a tween the house and senate as to the time when the bill ported back to the senate. The latter say they will have finished by Saturday or Monday at, the furthest, while the former are of the opinion that an agreement cannot be reached by Monday. A basis of agreement that has an air of probability about it is as follows: The house to agree to the senate amendments respecting reciprocity and sugar, and the senate to restore certain reductions made by it in the iron and steel, glassware and linen schedules; binder-twine to pay a duty of I cent a pound, instead of I L cent, a> fixed by the house. When the committee on means proposed to give the dimers a bounty of two cents lieu of the tariff duty of amount, their representative ington protested most vigorously. They "aid that such an arrangement could not be made permanent, for the reason that but one article being selected for encouragement in this way it would be the subject of constant attacks by others less favored and by those who oppose the system of bounties. Some figures that are given ny the representatives of the Louisiana Sugar Planters' association, now in the city, of the probable operation of the bounty clause are striking and when they are published will doubtless attract such measure of attention as will vindicate the fears expressed before the committee on ways and means last winter. One of the sugar delegates here is Mr. Foos, a manufacturer. of Springfield. Ohio. He owns a large plantation in Louisiana, and will grind five million pounds of sugar thi> year. He will be a creditor of the treasury to the amount of 8100,000, but his is not the largest crop by any means. One planter will turn out fifteen million pounds, entitling him to >300,(KIO bounty. Said one of the sugar men:    “Don't you think when the public sees that list running down from -.Joojion to SIO.OOO. and amounting to several millions altogether, that there will be a big kick? I tell you that I am afraid of it.” GENERAL WASHINGTON NEWS. A favorable Bepart on the Barrundia Shooting Resolution. Washington, Sept. IS.—The house committee on foreign affairs to-day directed a favorable report on the modification of McCreary’s resolution calling on the president for all official information respecting the killing of General Barrundia by the authorities of Guatemala. Progress of the Tariff Conference. Washington. Sept. I'.—The conferees on the tariff bill had a meeting this morning and reported to have made substantial progress. The most important action was the acceptance by the house conference of the senate of the reciprocity amendment. It is understood the senate increases of duties on wines and spirits have been abandoned by the senate members of the conference committee.    _ figuring on a Quorum. Washington, Sept. is. — The caucus of the republican members of the house, this afternoon, found there are now iii Washington one hundred and forty-live republican members, twenty-one less than a quorum. Consequently there are now twenty-eight republican absentees. The caucus resolved to make every effort to secure the attendance of these members. It was stated that if these ab- I sen tees return to Washington the remaining business of the session can bi? closed up in a few days, while a failure to secure the attendance of a republican quorum will tend to protract the session indefinitely._ Confirmed. The favorable impression produced on the first appearance of the agreeable liquid fruit remedy, Syrup of Figs a few years ago has been more than confirmed by the pleasant experience of all who have used it, and the success of the proprietors and manufacturers the California Fig Syrup Company. South Dakota’* Crops. Yankton, S. IU. Sept. is.— I hi1 chamber of commerce to-day issued an address setting forth the fact that many newspapers during the past year had been printing damaging statements as to the failure of crops in .South Dakota aud especially regarding the southwestern portion of the state. T he address pro-tests earnestly against these publications and says while a few counties in the northern ana central portion of the state have suffered from drouth the past two years the general average crop of the state is not surpassed by Ohio, Indiana or Illinois. townie. Ile told me he was engaged to j be married to a girl in Madison, ML* j Smith. He also furnished me with all the detail" of their Iir"t acquaintance at I college, and how this acquaintance had ripened into intimacy and a promise to I marry. He showed me letters written by the girl, from which it clearly ap- j peared that a too intimate relation had j existed between the two for a short time at leiust. “Then he showed me a letter from her in which she told him she was going to be married to W. M. Langdon two day" later. As soon as he received this letter , he wrote lo the father of the girl in Madison aud also to lier brother, her brother-in-law and the husband-elect, telling them that he held in his posses- j "ion letters proving the girl to have been i unchaste with him and strongly hinting I that it would take considerable money | from somebody to purelui-e his silence, j “When Langdon received Bevan's letter demanding money as the price of his silence the young husband telegraphed: ‘Will be iii Chicago to-morrow.’ When Levan read this message he immediately prepared for trouble. He possessed an old pistol, but fearing to rely upon it he asked me to lend him my revolver. I refused. The following day Langdon came to town. As he appeared in the door of our office Levan saw him and rushed to his desk for his gun, which he shoved in his pocket. For a moment the two men glared at each other, and then like a Hash each had his pistol aimed at the other’s head. I had been watching for some such move and before either could fire I commanded them to stop, at the same time covering them with my own revolver and threatening to "hoot if they did no instantly put up their weapons. Their faces were white and set in hard lines and murder glared from t ieir eyes. Slowly the two men lowered their guns, and then Langdon hoarsely asked Levan if he possessed letters written by Mrs. Langdon. Levan went to his dusk, drew out a packet of letters and with Langdon standing rigidly at hi" side read them aloud. Langdon made no attempt to deny their identity, but turned pale, and without a word wheeled around and left the office. “A few days after this,'’continued Mr. Bulten, “the brother-in-law of Mr. Langdon, a lawyer, came down from Madison and had an interview with Levan. He asked how much he wanted for those compromising letters. Levan demanded 81,000. The lawyer offered 8.300; which Levan refused. That was the ki't of the negotiations. So far as I know, Levan stopped writing threatening letters to the girl and her friends. Hut he kept on hoping that his price of silence would finally be paid him. As time went by aud no money came Levan became more and more morose, neglected hS work and seemed to be completely unbalanced. He often made threats in my hearing that if lie did not get hi" si.ooh he would expose the girl and the whole family, one of the most highly respected in Madison. I believe. I strongly advised him to accept the 8300 offered him and be satisfied with that. But he wa" stubborn and would not do it. As he kept on neglecting his work, and finally became obstreperous. my father discharged bim one week ago ki"t Monday. He then went straight to Iowa, evidently with the intention of murdering both Mrs. Langdon and her husband. I had heard birn make frequent threats to do this many times,” FUN K K A I. OF MKS. I.ANOKON. Madison, YY'is., Sept. is.—At three o’clock yesterday afternoon the funeral j services over the remains of Mrs. YU. M. | Langdon, whose young wife was cruelly I cut short by an assassin’s bullet at Grand j Mound, Iowa, were held at the home of I the parents, Mr. and Mrs. G. \Y'., within this city. There was a very large attendance. The casket was nearly hidden in a sea of floral offerings which came from a score of sources:    There    were no musi cal exercises either at tile home or at the grave, this feature being omitted for fear of too greatly agitating the brokenhearted mother, who wa: tossing about on her sick bed in another part of the house. A large procession followed the remains to Forest home cemetery. The husband of the murdered woman broke completely down into a faint just before the services opened. To-night Eugene C. Crowley and Miss Minnie L. Smith, the only unmarried sister of the dead woman, were married. The wedding invitation" had been withdrawn and no one was present except relatives of the bride and groom. Rowley is the young lawyer who last July prevented Levan from shooting Mrs. Langdon by seizing his arm as he wa" in the act of pulling a revolver from his pocket in the Smith home here.

Keokuk, la., Sept. is.—A young man calling himself Daniel Killeher registered at the Pacific. hoU"t‘ and announced himself as a detective sent here to apprehend and arrest YY ill Hovey for complicity in the mail robberies and that lie would get half of the money for his services, his commission and badge being furnished him by ;i Kansas detective association. Last evening after supper he handed Mr. Clark an order for 89, purporting to be signed by someone connected with Anderson’s canning factory, Mr. Clark accepted the order for board due and paid Killeher SI.90 in cash as change. This morning the order was sent to Mr. Anderson, the daughter of Mr. dark, taking it and presenting it for payment. It was at, once pronounced a forgery and the matter placed in the hands of the police. No trace of the fellow has been secured. THE OIL FIND. New Yoke, Sept. I s. — A strange double suicide occurred here this morning at daybreak. At that hour Gustave G. Koch, the well-known crayon artist, ascended the step" to the ( anal street station of the Fourth avenue elevated road, walked to a point in front of the second story of No. 140 Canal street, nodded and said:    “Yes, I have come, Emilie: are you ready?” Her answer was not heard, but Koch drew a revolver from hi- pocket and shot himself in the head, dying instantly. As he fell there came what seemed an echo of his shot from the direction of the window towards winch he had looked, and in a few minutes a messenger carne running saying a woman had shot herself at I lo Canal street. Au investigation revealed the fact that Emilie Kos"i, an actress aged nineteen, lay a corpse in bed in her room with a bullet in lier head. She was attired in a night robe with a bunch of heliotrope pinned to the bosom. It was evident she bared h»*r bosom for the fatal shot, for the garment was unscorched. There was nothing to show the cause of death, except a little red spot over tile heart, with a hole in the middle, for not a drop of blood flowed from the wound. Death was evidently as instantaneous as in the ease of Koch. It was evidently prearranged that they should take themselves out of the world together. The girl evidently made every preparation for the event. On a chair by the window lay her clothing carefully "mooted out. She had been writing and a table was covered with small sheets of paper lilied with her thoughts as she sat waiting. The hand was a neat feminine one and did not appear to be the least tremulous. They were lovers. The cause of the tragedy i" supposed to he the opposition of the girl’" mother to the marriage. Emilie Rossi had been on the stage since babyhood. Her father and mother lived in Berlin. He was an Italian tenor singer of note, but L dead. The girl's motlier, who i- still alive, is the German writer and novelist. Emilie Ro">i. The mother was ambitious for her child and hoped she would make a good marriage. The girl came to this country two years ago and played prominent parts in the Amberg Theater company.

A Verdict of Guilty Rendered in the Hol-den-Ruggell Murder Trial. Monticello, 111., Sept. I".—The great Holden-IiusselJ murder trial ended here yesterday at 8 a. rn. The court convened. and Judge P. Vail called on the jury for their verdict. Perfect stillness reigned as the judge read the verdict, which was a" follows: “YY'e. the jury, find the defendants guilty of murder in the mannerand form as charged in the irsdii talent, and tix the penalty of Galvin Holden, death; penalty, Albert Dunham, death: penalty, Mr*. Anna Eliza Holden, twenty-five years in the penitentiary; Edwin Holden, fifteen years in the penitentiary.” They received the verdict calmly at tirst. Then came a sensation. Mrs. Holden began a tirade of abuse, charging that the judge had been bought off, and that the jury had been bought, and denounced them a" demons. She also a"--ailed the witnesses for the prosecution arid called them all kinds of names, until the judge had to order the sheriff to remove her from the court room, which was done. The verdict gives universal satisfaction. the ck hie. Harley Russell, a young man twenty-four year" old. was returning to his home from the city of Monticello on .lune 21 last about nine o’clock p. rn., "itting in a buggy by his young wife. Whi n he had reach'd the city limit*, jus* south of where the Holden" lived, ie* overtook two iii• n who proved to be Calvin Holden and Albert Dunham. Dunham *eiz<-d hU horse and held it. w bile lh>!den drew a 44-caliber revolver and said:    “Halt. > on----1” and shot Russell. Tie ball penetrated the laxly between the seventh and eighth ribs and passing through Ic- bvt r and left lung, cut the spinal column and lodged in his I-ft side. Russell lived long enough to tell all about the shooting and who it was that shot him. Mrs. Russell also recogni/.- d Holden’s and Dunham’s coat and hat. The two men wa re immediately placed in jail, and Dunham told • (lough to implieat* Mrs. Holden and Edwin Holden, lier son. They, too, were arrest'<1, and all were indicted by the grand Jury w itll the above ri-sult. This is the t)r~t time the death penalty has been placed upon any p> tson in Haft county, and Galvin Holden and Albert Dunham's will be the first legal hanging to occur iii Platt county.

Styre Maliciously Charged With Keeping Race Horse*. Ida Grove, Sept. 18.—Some days ago there appeared a dispatch or correspondence from Mapleton, la., to the effect that a boy had been killed while riding a race horse owned by Rev. P C. Styre. It is not known whether it was a mistake or some lying on the elder, but the fact is, Rev. Styre does not, nor never did, own a race horse, and knew nothing of the affair until he received a letter from the dead boy's father, asking him to come down and preach the funeral sermon. Rev. Styre is pastor of the M. E. church at Ida Grove, and he has been annoyed very much since that item appeared by the receiptor letters from ministers throughout the district reprimanding bim for owning and running race horses, and it ha" caused so much feeling in the district that it is likely to be brought up in the M. E. conference, which meets this week Wednesday, but it is hoped when the facts are known that the matter will be dropped. COUNCIL BLUFFS FLOODED.

How It is Expected to Relieve Parents — Some Snags are in the Way. Mason City, la., Sept. 18.—The school book law. enacted by the last general assembly, providing for a uniformity among the schools in text books, has also put in the hands of the school boards the power in controlling the exorbitant prices heretofore charged, and which has proved such a burden to patrons of the schools. For instance, the school population of Iowa is to-day upwards of 300,000, and careful statisticians place the average price of school books per capita at 81.40, which includes students of high schools. This would make the annual expenditure for school books 8700,000. Under the now contract law school books are to-day retailing at a price 40 cents lower than a year ago, making a saving to the state on the price paid for school books of 8280,000 per year.
