Washington, D C. Aug. 8.
THE ''tomorrow" upon which the
tariff conferees have been for
weeks promising mi agreement
at list gives promise of fulfill
ment. When the tariff co lferees ad
journed at a fow mtnut -s before. C
o'clock tonight it was with tne under
standing that, at the session tomorrow
morning nil the details should
be arrange I and the repub
licans were called in, iu the
afternoon, and informed of what
their Democratic colleague had done.
One of the most prominent managers
on the part of the senate made the em
phatic statement that tomorrow would
see the edd of the conference, aud that
by night there, would ha either an
agreement or a general break op of the
conference But one thing, ho said,
could postpone the result any longer.
Should the house conferees agree to
an agreement, aud the agreement of
the details consume such thu as to
run the work over into the nest day,
that would be permitted, but other
wise the close of tomorrow wonll wit
ness the end of the conferees on the
tnriff Mil. So little is ret to be accom

likliliood that the Republicans can he
called in at an eurly hour, and there
would be no surprise if tho senate

the principle is concerned, thesu items
seem to he disposed of finally, one of
them is to be free and the other made
dutiable. These matters were the
sulj.ct of three distinct changes to
day. At 3 p. m. it was decided that
iron ore should he made free abso
lutely and that coal should retain
the rate of 40 cents a ton fixed by
the senate for a period of five years, at
the end of which time it wus to be free.
Subsequently a proposition was made
to fix a sliding scale that should reiluce
the duty a specific percentage each
year. This was antagonized, but the
honse men, anxious to gHin as much in
the way of concession as possible, per
sist d and the result was that this
mutter was left until tomorrow morn

Thi City Asitated by a Hitrh Grade
Scandal with the TJiiual Features.
Altoona, Ph., Aug. 8 Street rn
mors this afternoon pointed to a bank
,ud social scandal in this city of no
mean proportions, and investigation
later on fully corroborated this and
nukes the matter the one topic of
conversation here tonight.
Thrt man in the case is Hurry A
Gardner, cashier of the Second National
bank, but the woman is not so well
known, although she is said to be a
well-known and highly-connected resi
dent of H.'llefoiite, who has been living
nt a hotel here for some time as the
mistress of the defaulting cnahier.
II. A, Gardner, as is now known,
left the city nu Monday night aud it is
assorted that the woman accompanied
him. Bank Ex iminor Miller has been
in the city since Monday and bss been
working on the books of the bank since
Tuesday afternoon, discovering it is
said, that Gardner hns tikn witn huu
in his flight at least $20,000 These
tiguras are trebled, however, by some
people, and the defalcation may be
much greater than is given out.
The woman in the case went by the
name of Mrs. Gordon. She also, it is
sMd. has a Philadelphia address, No
2017 Mervine street. Garduer has left
an interesting family aud before going
wrote bis wifo a letter in whicii, among
other things, be told her to kiss the
baby for him.
Until today the missing cashier en
joyed the most implicit confidence of
the business community. II is a mom
tier of the house furnishing firm of
II irry VVaviio & Co., and his sudden
downfall lias created general regret
and consternation. The bunk officials
say that the bank is all right and the
general imiressiou hero is that it will
be able to stand any run that may be
made on it.
