He referred feelingly He told me of a plan whereby he | to the critical illness through which the intended to decoy his brother to the Fen inn on pretext of explanation. There he intended to kill him." Olivia mude no remark, bnt placed her hand within that of Felix. I wondered she could do so, seeing that he Was accused by his accomplice of a hideous crime, md.made no denial. I went down to the Feu inn with a man called Strent"—— 'That was not his real name," I interrupted. How do yon know that?"- she said sharply. Never mind. I know that it is so." I decline to tell his real name," said Rose, darting a furious look at me, "I, call htm Strent, and by that name yon knew him and knew me at the Fea inn." I certainly did not expect Rose' Strent, waiting maid, to change to Row Gernon, actress." "Yon are too meddlesome, Mr. Hanham," she said coolly, "and would do better to mind your own business." , "Scarcely when I have discovered so vile a crime." It was he who committed it," said Rose malignantly, pointing to Felix, "He came to the inn and killed his brother." "It is a liel" cried Felix In despair. "I laid no hand on my brother. / I did not even see him." "Wait one moment, Miss Gernon, before yon make this accusation," said Olivia? "You say that Felix is your lover?" "Ido." "And you promised to assist him in removing Francis if he married you?" "I did." "For what reason when the removal of Francis would enable Felix to marry me nnder his false name?" "Ho "promised not to do BO, and I thought if I helped him to kill Francis I could force him to marry me." "Yon love him greatly?" "I love him better than any one else in the world." "I am sorry for that," said Olivia, With a touch' of pity, "because Felix is dead." "Felix dead I" said Rose incredulously. "Then who is the man?" "This man is my lever, Francis Bri- arflold, who returned from Chile on the •th of June." [CONTIKOBD.) HAVEMEYER DOES NOT LIKE IT daughter of the vice president had safely passed. Mr. Harris (Dem., Tenn.) offered the customary resolution asking that a committee be named for the notification of tbe president that the senate was in session and ready to receive such communication u he might wish to make. On adoption of this .resolution, the presiding officer named Senators Harris (Dem., Tenn.) and Manderson (Rep., Neb.) as the committee. The vice president then directed • roll call, which developed the presence if 06 senators, considerably more than a quorum. The senate then took a recess. Upon the reassembling of the senate at 1:80, Messrs. Harris and Manderson reported that the president wonld communicate with the senate by one of his secretaries. Executive Clerk Praden immediately appeared at the main door and the white haired Isaac Bassett of the •enate staff announced, "Message from the president." A large document was carried to the vies president, who directed that the message be read. Thereupon Clerk Cox, in measured tones, began reading the document. There was special attention to the reference to the China-Japan war. It was the first official communication known to members of the foreign committee. It was much more brief, however, than had been expectod aud left still' open the actual details of the negotiations. Shortly before the reference to China- Japan was reached the Chinese minister, attended by Mr. Chang, an attache, entered tbe gallery reserved for the diplomatic corps and were interested listener* to the foreign features of the message, i The reading of the message closed at 8:40 o'clock, having taken two hours, and 10 minutes. The vice president announced that in accordance with the us- nal custom, the president's message would lay on the table and be printed. | BerUlon of the Rnlei. i There was more or less talk on the I Democratic side of the chamber during the day about the importance of a change In the rales in tbe senate, which culminated in the introduction of a resolution by Senator George. The resolution directs the committee on rules to report at the earliest possible moment such amendments as will enable the senate to discharge the legislative functions imposed upon it. The resolution specifically pro, vides that the senate shall ht.» power to ; oome to a vote on any pending question after giving such reasonable opportunity for amendment and debate si the senate may decide to be proper to compel tha attendance of a quorum; that for the purpose of making a quorum, all senator* present may be counted whether ' answering to their names or not; that a ••Bator present who fails to answer to the call of his name shall be punished behavior.

WASHINGTON, Dec. 4.—The opening of the short session of the house was picturesque in a vflur, but devoid of interesting features, The victorious Republican* nnd the defeated Democrats exchanged greetings, and gave and took thrusts on the result of the recent political battle with much animation, bnt thorough good nature. Tha galleries were cro w.lad and half the desks on the floor were smothered with flowers. The leaders on both aides met enthusiastic receptions from their respective partisans, the appearance of • Speaker Crisp, ex-Speaker Reed, Mr. Wilson and Mr. Burrows being the signal for long and loud outbursts. There was no chance in tha first day's proceedings for any reference to the elections, so the actual proceedings were dull and uninteresting. Seven new members were sworn in and after a long wait tbe president's message was read. Although listened to attentively, it was concluded without a single mark of approval or disapproval. As the hands of the clock pointed ,to the hour of lit Speaker Crisp entered the hall from the lobby and ascended the rostrum. A burst of applause signalized his entrance. With several hard bangs of the gavel the speaker restored order and the second sessifn ot th* Fifty-third congress was iu session. All the representatives stood with bowed heads while Rev. Bagley, the house chaplain, invoked divine blessing, and then, in accordance with the rule, the roll was called to officially ascertain the presence of a quorum. . The roll call developed the presence of 316 members, 47 more than a quorum. The speaker announced the fact that several members elected to fill vacancies, occurring by death or resignation, were present, and Geo-go P. Harrison (Ala.); John S. Little (Ark.); William L. Henry, Charles E. Coffin and William Laird (Md.); W. M. Beckner (Ky.); J. H.B romwell (O.), and Michael Griffith were escorted to the bar of the house and sworn in. The speaker also announced the resignation of Amos J. Cnmmiugs (N. Y.), who resigned to accept an appointment as subway commissioner of New York City. Upon motion of Mr. Wilson (Dem., W. Va.), a committee consisting of himself, Mr. Holman and Mr. Reed was appointed to join a similar committee from the senate and inform the president that a quorum of both house* was present and congress was ready to receive any communication he desired to make. Several other resolutions fixing the hour of meeting, etc., were adopted. At 1»:30 the house took a recess nntil 1 p. m. to await the president's message. At 1 o'clock, the committee not yet having arrived, another recess until 1:15 was taken. When the committee at last walked down the aisle the house was all attention while Mr. Wilson announced that the president wonld communicate his views hi writing. At l:ttb Mr. Praden, the president's executive oterk, appeared with the message, which, by direction of tbe speaker, was read by the house clerk, Mr. Kerr. Some routine reports were presented, after which Soranton (Pa.) announced tho death of P. W. Wright, late representative from the Fifteenth district of Pennsylvania. The usual resolutions were adopted, and then, as a further murk of respect, tbe home at 8:30 p. m. adjourned for the day. General Bwalui't Baeeewor. WASHINGTON, Dec. 4.—The announcement of the president's intention to retire Judge Advocate General Swaim this month has caused much speculation in military circle* a* to succession. Under ordinary circumstances General Swaim would not retire before 1H9U. The president has adopted a OOUTM which, while perfectly legal, has very fow precedent* in th* history of the ttviny. Up to this time bat two name* have been prominently mentioned for the position. One is Joseph Doe of Wiwxnuiu, assistant secretary of war, and th* other I* Colonel 0. II. Liber of South Carolina.

NEW Yotttc, Dae. 4.— John Burns, member of parliament, and David Holmes, 'member of parliament, the English delegates to the annual conference of the American Federation of Labor, to be held In Denver, spent a busy day Monday. In company with Samuel Oompen, they made a trip through the Bowery and viewed the tenement houses on the East side.' In the evening a mass meeting of the trade unionists of New York and Brooklyn was held in Cooper Union. Samuel Oompen presided and Messrs. Burns and Holmes were the principal speakers. David Holmes, who is chairman of the Textile Fabrics association in England, said it would be the duty of the workers in America, as they had done in England, to put iown faction and insist upon united action. Chairman Oompers, in introducing Mr. Burns, referred to him as the hero of the Trafalgar square. Mr. Burnt was received with an ovation. Burnt' Speech Interrupted. •'-"• "We are determined," said he, "that the American working men shall unite in one grand movement, an international movement, unfettered by race or creed or color, joined with the workingmen in the old world for the clear emancipation and amelioration of all those who earn their bread by honest labor." Here some one shouted: "Three cheers for the Socialist Labor party," at which the speaker appealed to Chairman Oompen to keep order. "I have in England, the land of antiquated constitutionalism, of effete monarchy, received fair play, and here in this land of freedom, I expect to receive it. I shall stay here in any case nntil I have my say. [Cheers,] Mr. Burns concluded by saying he bad more pity for the American women than the men. It was they who have the greater privations. He appealed to all workingmen to unite, and they would, "ere long, succeed in carrying ont the principles of true socialism." When President Oompen arose to introduce the next sneaker, Mr. John William Benn, member parliament, he was greeted with a storm of hisses. These came from a strong contingent of the Socialist Labor party, and the din became so general that Mr. Benn did not speak. SENSATION CREATED IN COURT. Calted State* Attorney* Charged With Coniplracjr A(alnit A. B. U. Striken. SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 4.— A sensation was created in the United States court before which Main and Catsidy, A. B. I U. men, are on trial for conspiracy. At- I toraey Montieth, their counsel, formally I moved to have United States District At- 1 toraey Garter and Assistant District Attorney Samuel Knight removed from their position* as prosecutors in the case on the ground of biases and undue friendliness for the Southern Pacific company. It was charged that through all the recent strike trouble the district attorney and his assistant conspired with the Southern Pacific officers and that they j took snob unwarranted action on behalf j of the railroads in this and became so biased that the conviction of the men ) now on trial is essential to the vindica< ' tion of the district attorney. It was further charged that the district attorney and hi* assistant* have _ • personal interest in suppressing evidence on behalf of the accused men, and that when the matter was under investigation before the United States. grand jury the district attorney's influence was wrong[ fully used to prevent the grand jury i from hearing material evidence on ' behalf of the striken. It i also charged that District Attorney I Garter owes his appointment to Senator Stanford and railroad influence, and that through all of the recent trouble be was active in their behalf. The motion to remove District Attorney Garter and his atsisiant, Knight, and to substitute special counsel for the prosecution was denied by Judge Morrow and the trial was -ordered to pro oeed.
