Progress More Rapidly. The democratic house icaumed consideration of the tariff here today wivj every prospect of rapid completion of the measure and its presentation to the house early next week With the fight over free wool and free sugar settled, the free list and administrative provisions remained as important issues ahead. Representative Harrison, of Mississippi, a member of the new foreign affairs committee, and otheis are planning a fight against the prousion to 'permit a discount of o per cent on all duties imposed on goods imported in vessels built in the United States and wholly the property of United States citizens. They contend that amounts to a ship subsidy and that it is contrary to the spirit of some treaties. The caucus took up the remainder of the wool schedule when the discussion was resumed Earlier the ways and means committee majority held H, meeting to consider the protests of foreign countries against certain provisions of the administration features of the bill. Republican members of the house were busy today preparing for further discussion of the tariff duty at a caucus tonight. Many amendments to various sections of the bill had been prepared and will be offered in tonight's caucus. Substitute sections are being, prepared 4 by republicans of the ways and means committee to be offered in the house in placp of the Underwood bill's schedules on wool and cotton.

The popes physicians replied to the appeal for a direct statement with the frank declaration that it was extremely difficult to say that'the poniff's constitution would overcome the present crisis. But even if it does so, it was explained, the remainder of the pontiff's days would still be considered as precarious find the end might be expected any time. The pope is so much better, according to today's reports from the Vatican, that if present conditions continue the last bulletin about his health will be published by the physicians tomorrow. Iji this the doctors will declare that thcj are confident of the pontiff's recovery. Pope Says He Is Better. The pope himself says he is better. When Dr. Amici visited him at noon today and asked him how he felt the pon tiff replied: "This is the first day since my, first relapse that I feel really relieved." Prof. Marchiafava and Dr. Amici today impressed on«the pope the necessity of complete rest, informing him that anv activity would create obstacles to his recovery. "Your commands shall be obeyed," said the pope, smiling, with an air of resignation Insisted on Rising. Shortly after the doctor? 1*1 left, however, the sun broke thiough the clouds and flooded ths 'pope's bed chamber. The pontiff thereupon declared that he could endue has bed no longer. Hla restlessness increased and he insisted .in rising Hie attendants felt obliged to give way to his wishes. His valet proceeded to help him to rise, but the pope refused lua assistance, saying that he could help himself, although he admitted he wan feeling somewhat weaker. LOUIS LITMAN IS ILL.

POLICE WEAVE WEB Chicago. April 17 --Finger prints o! the murderer of George Dietz, woman's tailor, who was beaten to death in his home Monday, are expected to throw n web around the guilty that cannot be broken This information was given by a police officer m the case today. Several of the marks are the bloody imprints on the handle of the mason's hammer that shattered the skull ot Dietz On the stenciled letter left by the assassin more finger marks were discovered. On the bed, too, the hands ot the murderer left a crimson trail "You could not ask for a better set of finger prints,'' said the police officer. Under the microscope they are 'clean as a whistle' "Line for line so far these prints have corresponded with one of the suspects' prints. There is only one point of confusion. In one place we found a bloody unger print that does not match the others It may be that a second person was in the room." Coroner Hoffman said it was likely that the coroner's jury at tiie conclusion of the introduction of what evidence the police possess will recommend that a man and woman be held to answer fo: the killing. Mrs. Dietz remained in conference with her attorney more than two hours, Neither would discuss the case "Mi- Diet? will take the witne=s stand at the inquest if she finds it necessary," said the attorney. Discovery was made today that Mrs Dietz is the second wife of the slain man, Dietz obtained .1 divorce m Tanuarv, 1887, from a woman to ·whom he was married in September, 1878, at Hamburg, Germany.

When shortly after 5 o'clock 'this morning Sheriff Wilkms was aotified that they had agreed on a verdict, he immediately summoned Judge Matthias from bed at his hotel and also the attorneys for the prosecution and the defense and they hiuned to the court room. Then the prisoner was brought from jail and the verdict reported bj the Jury Young Hoovei w,i« not visibly affected uhen he heard his fate. His attorneys made the usual motion for a new trial. This will not be heard for several days. In its trial the case had lasted for seventeen days. It was most -vigorously contested on both sides, especially by the defense, which sought to prove suicide or that the murder, if a. murder, was committed by "a strange man" who had entered the home and shot Mrs. Hoover. The minder occurred on January 10 last. Mrs. Hoover was shot m the. head three time*. She died several days later at the St. Joseph hospital in Fort Wayne. The prosecution claimed that in a moment of consciousness Mrs. Hoover charged her husband with the shooting Hoover's etory is that he found his wife dying on the floor of their home and that she told him an elderly man shot her when she refused his proposals.

Mr. Henry explained today that his amendment was aimed at the supreme court's rule of reason. AUDUBON SOCIETY MEETING. Members Will Take Up Study of Cormorant Family of Birds.

Reports submitted thus far move ;hat the UK st urgent need in most families is furniture to leplace thrft which was damaged by the water. TU poorei aeople of the submerged" distucts re- ;urned to their homes after the ·water had left them and found that their furniture was falling apart as « result of ihe softening of glue used in its minu- iacture. Of course there are many demands for clothing, fuel and provisions, jut the greatest outlay to ~b« experienced by the relief workers will be lot rurmture. Mrs Noll has already communicated with many of those who donated money to the high water relief fund, and reports that practically all of them are satisfied for a portion of the balance of approximately $7,500 to be expended for furniture. Business men say that when these flood sufferers see their homes furnished again they will be encouraged to help themselves and those that are in debt will be greatly assisted Announcement is made that the relief workers are having considerable trouble in securing a sufficient number of wagons and vehicles to send after the furniture which has been donated by generous citizens and it is the desire of the committee that any who can possibly assist in the work, report to Mrs. Noll or to township Trustee H. E. Branning. First Clean Houses. Emphatic orders were made at headquarters in the trustee's office this morning that no furniture will be placed in the homes of flood sufferers until these homes have first been thoroughly cleaned. While most of those whose houses were inundated ha-ve succeeded in cleaning out the mud and accumulation of debris, there are still many houses where the cleaning process has been sadly neglected, and if these people expect any help from the relief workers they will first havetto help themselves rid place their premises in good clean condition.
