Preparatory to.. Work of Special
- Session. Tariff, New States.
- Washington, March 7 Behind locks
and bolts, the new Democrats Way
and Means Committee tins taken , up its
serious labor. In its dual role as com
mittee on committees and. on ways and
means, it begins outlining of the entire
pohev of. the house of representatives
of the next Congress. - 1
The organization of the house and the
setting of a definite - legislative pro
gram, particularly as to tariff Revision,
are the big problems. Indications are
that the committee will be in almost
continuous session from now until it re
ports the first revision of a tariff sched
ule to. the IX mncratic House in the ex
tra session. , :. w v . " ; -,
When-the. question of approving the
constitution of New Mexico and Arizo
na comes up in the special session, and
it will be pressed early and persistent
ly, Senators say, theie will probably be
a new alignment among the Democrats
tvho voted almost solidly for the appro
val of the Arizona constitution. Friends
of the territory believe that the new
men coining into the next Congress, as
a rule, will be favorable to . Statehood,
and that both Territories will be admit
ted. probably in the speciaf Bession. ;-.
- It waspointed out by obnstilutipnal
authorities here that in rase the Senate
and House disagree as to . the time of
adjournment of the coming extra ses
sion, Pre ident Taft has the power to
terminate it. -
If both houses passed the Canadian
Reciprocity bill, for instance, - the Re
publican' senato might purposely 'disa
gree with the Democratic House in or
der to prevent tariff revision and give
the Presidetifa chance to take -advantage
of his constitutional preroga'ive
The. Democrats, however, are ..aware
of this pitfall, ard it is understood that
they will hold up reciprocity ss long as
they wish to remain in session. '

ENDS HIS LIFE
romiuent Carteret County CTtizen
Committed Suicide in This -City
There was intense excitement in this
city yesterday morning when it became
known that Mr. Charles Barxer, of Stel
la, Carteret county, had committed sui
cide in fail room at the Gaston Hotel by
shooting himself in the forehead with a
32 calibre revolver, Mr. Barker came
to the city on the previous day, presum
ably in the best of health and without a
care in the world. Going to the hotel
he registered and was shown to a room.
During the-early part of the day he
went out, presumably to see some bus
iness friend, but later it was learned
that he had purchased a revolver from
Mr. W. T. Hill while he was out, he al
so secured a box of cartridges at the
sa'me time. Returning to the hotel he
went into the pool room and remained
there for several hours. While in the
pool room he sat over in one corner
where he would not" attract so much at
tention and seemed to be meditating up
on some subject, and it is more than
probable that he decided to end his ex
istence while he was there.
The first known of the horrible trag
dy was shortly before 7 o'clock yester
day morning. The room which Mr.
Barker occupied was adjacent to that
occupied by the waitresses. Shortly af
ter 6 o'clock the head . waitress arose
and called to one of the waitresses in
another room, telling her it was time
to arise, - Mr. Barker heard the call and
thinking that it was for himself an
swered. This was the last sound heard
from the dead man's room until the re
port of the revolver was heard. While
tie waitresses were preparing to go
down to the dining room the shot rang
out. This of course excited them and
one of them ran out into the hall and
called for Mr. Foy Perkins, the stew
ard, and told him that a man had killed
himself in his room on that floor. Mr.
Perkins at once went to thj door of Mr.
Barker a room and attempted to open
it, but finding it locked went down into
the office and got Mr. Cox, the clerk, to
secure his pass key . which unlocks all
of the doors on that floor and the two
returned. Upon again reaching the door
Mr.-Cox climbed up and looked over the
transom but failed to see the body of
the deceased. The pass key was then
inserted and the two men entered the
room. Lying on his back in front of
the lavatory with blood gushing out of
a jagged wound almost in the center of
his forehead they found Mr. Barker.
The revolver was found lying in the
bowl, directly under the place his hand
must have rested-when the fatal shot
was fired On the floor around the body
was a pool of blood, while onJus under
clothing, (he had not dressed in outside
apparel,) were great splotches of blood.
Everything in the room was in perfect
order. . His clothing . was lying neatly
folded on a chair, and his shoes just un
der the side of the bed.
Mr. Cox Immediately summoned a
physician, who, upon his arrival, a few
minutes later, informs! them that Mr.
Barker was beyond help, that his death
had been almost instantaneous.. .
The Coroner was summoned and ju
ry was empanelled who immediately
went into the dead man's room and ex
amined the body, after which they re
tired to one of the lower rooms where
the testimony of a number of employes
of the hotel was taken. At the conclu
sion of this the following verdict was
The deceased came to his -death by a
pistol shot wound inflicted by hirase f.
There is no doubt that the dead man
committed suicide but "there is much
mystery surrounding the ease. s It Is
well known that Mr. Barker was not
financially embarrassed, having consid
erable property and also an account
with at least two banks. People who
knew him in his every day life say that
his home affairs always seemed to be
agreeable, and that he was never better
pleased than when he could be with his
wife and three children. Taking these
facta into consideration, those who
knew him are certain that tha fatal
shot was fired while the deceased was
temporarily insane. But that- it was
prmeditated is shown by th fact that
he purchased the pistol and cartridges
the previous day. He was not addicted
to Strang drink. No letter, not or
any other clue aa to why he killed him
self was left by the deceased, and it is
mora than probable that tha direct
cause will never be known. ;
An undertaker was secured and the
body prepared for burial. ;
Mr. C, C Morton, a brother-in-law of
the deceased, who resides In Bridgeton
was notified and took eharge ot tha re

and was the ton of the late Dr. W. H

A telephone message received in this
city yesterday afternoon from Newport
stated that a young daughter of Louis
Young,- a negro farmer who lives a few
miles from that place had been fatally
burned at her borne yesterday morning,
From what could be learned in regard
to the matter it seems that the child's
mother had built a Are in the living
room of the house and after taking it
from its bed and dressing it placed it
on the floor in front of the fire and
went out into another room Within a
few minutes she heard the child scream
ing and at once went to investigate.
When she reached the room the little
girl was enveloped in a mass of flames,
her clothing having ignite! from the
burning coals. The mother attempted
to extinguish the flames and eventually
succeeded but not before .the child had
been so badly burned that she died a
short while later.
