David Morris Shot and Killed by I. P. Withrow. Denver.~A Buena Vista special to the Republican says: I.P. Withrew ~hot and instantly killed David Morris, section laborer, at Newett, twelve miles east of this city, abot~t noon Monday. Withrow gave himself up to ~istice Breitha~l~t; ,his prelin~nar-y nearing was held aFonce and the homi- cide was declared Justifiable. Sheriff Ankele with a deputy went to the scene Monday afternoon. Mr. Withrow offered no resistance and was brought here and lodged in the county Jail. Sheriff Ankele brought the body of Morris overland in a wagon. The cause of the killing, according to Wlthrow, was a spree, lasting nearly a week, during which time, Wlthrow says, bad feeling between the ~wo men steadily increased until Sunday night when Morris, it is al- leged, openly stated to others in the camp that he would kill Withrow. The shooting occurred in Wlthrow's house, a little three-room cabin, and was witnessed by three men, Phil Hamilton, John Larson and James Smith, all of whom were talking to Morris when the fatal shot was fired. They are quoted as saying that the killing was Justified and necessary. The deputy sheriff says that appear- ances at the scene of the tragedy do not bear out this statement. The dead man was sitting upright in his chair, with a bullet hole from a .44 caliber Winchester through his head the only movement made after the shot was fired being when his head fell forward on his chest. The bullet entered the right eye, passed out back of the left ear and was embedded in the wail. The movements of the little group Just prior to the time the shot was fired are more or less shrouded in mystery, as no one seems to" be able to give a connected account of what led up to the -shooting. Withrow's Winchester hung in an adjblnlng bedroom over the bed. He was compelled to leave the room to get It, and the 0nly shot that was fired, the officer says, was from the bedroom. The-dead man had not bee~ moved and sat in the chair when the officers arrived. He was evidently engaged in filling his pipe when killed. The deputy says no weapon of any descrip- tion was near. him. A coroner's in- quest will be held. RATE BILL REPORTED. Tll|msn Places Hepburn Bill Before the ~nate.

Mr. Aldrich indicated that there would be no unnecessary delay, but that the bill would be discussed in ac- cordanace with its importance. Mr. Tillman decided that he was not prepared to make a formal report, and that it would be more effective to sim- ply report the bill in accordance with the resolution adopted by the commit- tee, which provides that the members are left free ,to exercise individual Judgment concerning amendments that may be offered in the Senate.
