R—The city wn* startled • ^duohdny morning by the report that A, J. nell, a well known resident for manyyean, nd a millionaire, bad !x*on murtierod in bis ouse on Washington lioulevard by burglars, who had broken Into his house. The crime ffascoinniiit'-'d about 'i o'clock in the morn- ng, but was net discovered until 0 a. m., Then the conohnan went to tha house to ulld the fin B The reason of this was the nreanoning four of the only other occupant* f the plHcu hemdea Mr. Snoll—two or throe oung womnn, who, although they hoar-'I shots and ojuld get no answer to their tills for Mr. Bnell, went back to bod instead f giving tljM alarm. x Ihu burglars hid entered the house at tbe ir of the basement and robbed an un- oi.'kod safe In the dining room of unknown nluablei>, *ui>poRed to have bevn a few United States bonds, .and from thouce bad ascended to tbe main floor and finding the, larlor doors locked proceeded to open them ly force, and here the fatal shooting took ilnce. Mr. Bnell slept alone In a room directly ver the middle parlor. Quietly a« the bur- jars had worked, they had aroused the aged >ut rugged millionaire. He rose from bed, niied hia revolver, and stole stealthily down ho main staircase, at the bottom of which e no doubt hoard the thieves at their ork. - tie was in his night robes, he white figure bad gone but ialf way down the stairs when tbe urlor doors were closed by one of the men ISJ!H the room. The noise startled the old linn. He levelwl bis revolver at the panels if tlm doors and fired. The bullet passed hruu^h iho center of one of the doors, about five feet from tho floor, and crossing ho parlor, pleroxl a white silken banner upon which a cluster pf flowers ha I been inintnU, nnd struck tho wall just above the irnrble fire plni-u. It then fall up>n the ttoor. Mr. Bnell, flrod again, bul uo trace f this bullet can be found. With an armed man standing at the doors through which hoy entered the room the burglars became les|HtraU». One of (hem discharged hlfl weapon, and the bullot, a heavy one, show- ng groat explosive power behind it, pierced i panel In the door and lodged In ,he wall just above the banister wat, where it now remains. Tha three holes n tbn door (ell the story of tha blind duel. There was nothing about tbe figure, lying in the middle of the richly tapestried corridor, with bis gray hnir matted in blood and hia right band clinched aliqut the handle o[ a revolver, to give tbe helmeted otilcers any positive idea as to bow the millionaire mad') ila lost stand for his life nnd his property. It Is thought, however, that the instant the mrglars fired through tho panel they opened the doom and with tho "barrels of their ro- volvers and n flood of light from thuir lantern eveled at tbe head of tlm bewildered old man, shot him before he could utter a wor I. Their bloody work • finished, tho assassins slipped out of a side door and disappeared. The work was done by skillful burglars, as the took they loft in thuir flight testily. They are of the bout raaku and tbe work ot opening the back door Indicates the accomplished cracksman. As soon as the police were notified tho whole force was put on tha- qui viva, but the faot 'that four hour* had elapsed sincn tho murder made it difilcult to Ind clown that wore sufficiently encouraging M give much hope of reaultn. One capture was made, however, which is interesting even if the rulpi it hud nothing to do with the crime. A rouple of officers saw a suspt clou* character lounging, about the postoffloe late In the evening withy* bundle under hla arm. He said he had washing in the bundle, but an examination showed this to be false and upon opening it the following crook'* ar senal was developed. Six dark lanterns, six chilled., jo.ugen, one chilled extension bit, slxS-ounce slum? shota, six steel knuckles, two ounces of dynamite, two ounces of giant powder, three dirk knlvoo, throe muOlJil alarm whistles, ilxit'4 caliber Colt's navy revolver*, four steal Jim' mies, six boxes of Iwifer /use, four mall- pouch keys (United States regulation), a bunch ot skeleton keys—forty-two different varieties, one din nond glass-cutter. The chilled exteuniou bit found in tha kit fitted without deviation tbe holes drilled in tbe safe In Mr. Snell's residence. It wa* a new one, the end of which evidenced unmistakably that It had been used within forty- eight hour*. In iu thread clung portions of black granite enamelling, such as a bit. would first comn Into contact with on entering tbe door of a "wife. While tbe nurfaen of these particles wuni black and highly- polished, tho obveart) aide* showed corroded iron. •••..• He'said his name was n. V. W. Benedict and that he lived In Marshalltown, Iowa. He belonged to an organized gang of robbers composed of four men, himself Inclusive. Tut*, three others' 'names are Frank McCord, aged IB fount, of Marsballtown, and son of the sheriff of that city; Qaorge Dunn, aged 17, of Manmalltowu, and Thad, alias "I'lnn" Hall, aged 21 years, also of Murshalltotvn. The four men had been work- Ing the ciuntry lying north and-west of tba Yellowstone and Missouri rivers for tbe past eighteen months. Their tools had Income useless and he had b*en delegated to purchase a haw outfit In Chicago. Forthls purpose he cnmc to the city Bn^urday last. He had consummated the purchase of the kit on Monday and was on bio way to the train when arrested. He wia locked up. The post mortem examination allowed that Mr. Bnell had a bullot in his heart and an- rither lu hi* hraia Ha was a salf-made man. His birth place was near Fort Plains, N. Y., and be was a little over (U years old. Ha married Henrietta Budam, of Newport, Ky., some time after coming west, and leaves four children ami hi* wife. Mrs. Bnell wa* not In the city when the tragedy occurred, but was tclegriphed for.

B.—Ridlleberger created the dnlly diversion in the sanata Wodnwdny by his usual attempt to secure -thtf public consl'.leration of the British treaty. After tho posnago of the bill relieving stock imported for breeding purponos from customs cluilM had pawed, the Virginia senator took the floor nnd objected to Uie consideration of any business matter (to which objection could be made) during the time assigned for morning businets until bn could have action on the resolution offered by him some week* since to have the British extradition treaty considered in open session. After he had been speaking for ten or fifteen mtnutoa Butler suggested mildly that the senator from Virginia should allow tha senate to proceed with tt« business. The senator from Virginia, however, declined to be Interrupted. A few momenta later, Harris asked permission to make A suggestion, but Riddleborgor replied, jocularly, that he could only do so In executive secalon. Thereupon, Harris made the point of order that a previous motion by Teller, then ponding, was not debatable. The p&int of order WAS sustained by the presiding officer, who aald that the eouator from Virginia was not entitled to proceed furthor. The senator made an effort to appeal from the chair, but was directed to take bis seat, and Teller withdrew bla motion.' Rlddla- borgcr was violbly angry at this suppression and Inter, when Harris moved an executive session and offered to withdraw it provided a vote could be had on Riddle* burger's resolution without discussion, the latter declared that he would make no conditions as to the resolution or treaty, and demanded the yeas and nays on the motion to go into executive Beeslon. The senate then votod—43 to K—to proceed to executive bnsineitv Rlddleberger voting lu the affirmative. A dramatic scene followed. Rlddleberger arose as tho chair announced the vote and attempted to spenk. The chair directed as usual that the "sergeant-at-arms will clear the galleries aiid close tha doors." The senator from Virginia, who has a bronchial affection which renders It difficult for him to make himielf audihle, pale with excitement said: "I beg pardon, sir, I arise to move & re- consldc ration of the vote. [Pause, during which the galleria<< ,woro being cleared.] Have I noc the right, sir, to move a reconsideration! I votod In the affirmative for that purpose. [Further paust.] I have the right, and no. sergeant-at-arms oan restrain me from : " The closing of tha door* shut oft the fur- ,ther proceedings from the public ear. It is understood that the senator from Virginia continued his remarks In executive session, but directed them against the substance of the treaty, and that be consumed the time until the senate adjourned. WAJBHINBTOK Crrr, Fob. «.—Th» senate In secret session Wednesday, after listening to Senator Rlddlebergert attack on the British extradition treaty, disposed of the vexed question by postponing further consideration of It until next Decumner. It In stated that the treaty was postponed by a vote of S3 to SI, and one authority say* the treaty provides that "Urn provisions of the tenth article of said treaty [that of 184J] shall bo nnd am hereby extended so as to apply nnd comprehend the following additional crimes not mentioned in the said article—namely: 1, manslaughter; 2, burglary; 8, embezzlement or larceny of the value of f.W, or £10 and upwards; 4, ma- llolou.i Injury to property, whoreby the life of any person shall bo en (angered, if such injuries conUHute a crinu according to the terms of both the high contracting parties, or according to the laws ot that political division of either country In which the offenses .shall have been committed, and of that pollllcal division of either country In which the' offender shall be arrested.

After reviewing the work of previous year* tbe report in terms approves of the recent report of tbe Facile railroad commission appointed by tbe president and lays: "It now seems to tbe government director* that there can no longer bo any reasonable doubt as to the interest and duty of the government towards the Union Pacific railroad, and they beg to express the earnest hope that no further delay will • occur in passing tuch' a settlement through congress. We cannot too strongly urge tbe great harm which delay Is doing, both to tbe Union Pacific and to tha security of tbe government debt.

WABHiNrfroN CITY, Feb. 0.—A United .Press reporter has obtained from Belraont, chairman of the committee on foreign affairs, an Important statement with regard to the Chinese question, and al*o as to the pending treaty with Great Britain.- 'In reply to the questions of tba reporter, Belmont said he felt that he onuld'properly state that negotiations had been pending for some time for an amicable settlement ot the Chinese question. They had boen suspended during last summer in consequence of the absenca. of the Chinese minister, but bad now been resumed and were reochlng completion. He un lei-stood, in fact, tUat a draft of the proposed treaty had been transmitted to the Chinese'minister, containing such modifications of existing treaties as would bring about the complete exclusion of thnt class of emigrants to which the people of the western coast objected. It wan only just to the Chinese government to say that there wu no disposition on their part to stand In the way of such an agreement, and ho believed there won a strong prospect that within a month we would have a treaty whTch would effectually dispose of the question. It would, of course, be necessary for congress to enact legislation to carry out the purpose of such a treaty, and therefore it wan desirable that the hills now pending before the bouse should not bo hastily acted upon. If there should be a failure,.of negotiation, which did not eeoiu likely, congress. Would be informed in ample time to 'pass independent legislation. Bdt- mont further said that any treaty arrangement with China to pruvtmt Chinese immigration would, of course, have to be supplemented by come stringent legislation, and perhaps even by some treaty stipulation* with Groat Britain to suppress the introduction of Chinese Coolie labor by way ot HODS Kong and Vancouver, by which moan* our pretunt restrictive law* were largely avoided. It waa understood them would be no difll- rulty on thin soora. Of the pending treaty with Great Britain, B«lmooi Htiid that as the matter bud bomi so widely discuised through tba papers, be thought it only just to the u<i ministration that It should bo known thst no oluusa per- mittlnR tha uxtraditiou of a citizon of the United Bl.iUw tar any political offante waa ln<;lu ILJ In Ib-.i treaty uout to th» soimtj.

WASHINGTON ' Crrr, "Feb; W —The lard qutiliun bad another hearing 1 before the senate agricultural committee Wedm'Sdny. The pith of the matter Is that certain Boston lard manufacturers are trying to have a tax put on adulterated lard—a Chicago pro I act to a great extant—declaring it a compound ol lard, stenrlne and cotton seed oil The Chicago men admit the compound, but declare it healthful Tbe Boston raon brought a* witness Professor Sharpless, chemist, who tectlfled that he had analyzed (ample* o; Chicago lard purchased In open market, anc found that Armour's' "pure family lard" waa composed of 1 00 per cent of real lard, anc the remainder of cotton 'seed ol and beef fat Fairbanks lard, ilraila ly marked, was made of the same ingredients with less of the pure lard, while a package marked "Ilalsumd & Co." did not have a particle uf lard In it Sharpleu said tba healtbfulnese, of cotton-seed oil was a mooted question which medical men must decide. Mr. Fairbanks, ot Chicago, charged that many of tbe creamery establishments ot Illinois and Iowa bought lard of Chicago dual- em-to mix with their "pure" butter. He salt the animus of this effort to tax bis lard was in the fact that it was competing with the product of the Boston man at home. He opposed the bill bill because it put a stigma on, hi* product , Democratic.
