PAPERS and oher lines of eoods we SOFT SOAP. Clue to the Sensation. An Autopsy Will Be Held at Alburgh Thla Afternoon, The suicide ot Clement W. Eddy, the young AlbrjrgU merchant, a week Ago lust Sunday evening, wafl a sumciently tragic event throw that quiet little town iiitb a flutter of ezcitemeiit. For aught the world knew, his home life was happy and he was fairly prosperous in business affairs.

So the motive for the suicide was much of a mystery until the itlquest was held on the following day. The inquest was hot public, but such things will leak out, and it was long before the people of Alburgb knew that Mr. Eddy's wife had testified that her husband shot himself in fear Ithat she wouli discover he had been untrue to her. The testimony df the mother, Mrs. A.

S. Hillaker, corroborated the wife's. Then people began to talk and touch of it was ugly talk. Some said if Mr. Eddy had been untrue to his wife she had been equally false.

It was a dainty morsel for many tongues and much of the gossip was along these lines. It was also said the couple were intensely jeal ous of each other and it waB hinted there was about as much motive for murder as for suicide. The whole town began to get interested and take sides in the matter. Then it was remembered there had been no autopsy that no one was in the house at the time save Mrs. Eddy and her mother that no one who saw the body could say there were powder marks about the wound or any singeing of the hair that would indicate the shot had been fired at very short range that the inquest had been a superficial one, as none doubted at the time it was a plain case of suicide, that perhaps a more thorough inquest was demanded.

So the selectmen came to St. Albans and secured Col. A. A. Hall to conduct for the town the inquest which began Monday.

The intense interest in the case is manifested by the crowd that has thronged the little hall and breathed its bad air since the inquest began. Every word that has fallen from the witnesses' lips has been weighed and discussed many, many times, The testimony is practically all in, though a few questions may be asked Mrs. Eddy this afternoon. It points rather more strongly to sui cide than to murder. Still there are some points that must be cleared up before everyone will be sa tisfied.

Two chambers of the revolver were empty when found. What ever became of that second bullet has not been satis-factorfly explained yet. The absence df the marks which would Bhow that the' revolver was discharged close to the head has not been accounted for. The autopsy that was held at 8 :80 o'clock this afternoon, ia expected, how ever, to clear up this point. The only physician who saw the body Rays there is not enough evidence to Bay it was suicide.

The lack of any testimony to show that Mr. or Mrs. Eddy were unduly ex cited or acted unnaturally just before the shooting is another cloudy point. The position of the right hand and the revolver when the neighbors reached the body is still another point about which there is some question. The Testimony.

In Mrs. Eddy's testimony taken at the previous inquest, she stated that her husband and her brother were awav all tuat Sunday afternoon. When they returned he announced they had been been to supper, hud eaten oysters. She replied that it the boys nad an oyster supper the girls unght to have one a so, meaning herself, her mother and sister-in-law. They live over the store and Mr.

Eddy went down stairs to get the oysters. His' wife thought he was gone longer than necessary, went down stairs and found him reading a letter that she thought was in a woman's handwriting. She asked to see it and was told he bad no letter. She persisted and thought she saw him Blip the letter down into his drawers and pick up a ece of paper from a desk. She would not be put off and still asked for the letter.

Mr. Eddy after a little more talk said tnev would so ud Btairs and let mother see if he had any letter. wnen toey reacnea tne kitchen Mrs. Eddy searched his Dockets and finally found what she thought was the letter in bis trousers leg. tie nnaliy went out of doors where she followed and found him sittingm the steps.

She saw when she came by the end of the piazza what she thought to be the letter lying under the steps. Tbey went up Btairs together. Mrs. Eddy came down alone, crawled under the steps, got the letter, took it upstairs ana sat down on the table in tne dining room to read it. Her husband stepped into an adjoining bedroom and shot himself.

That, in sabstance. is her brief testimony. It has not been brought out in evi- (COIfTtNTIED OIT BECOXD PAOB.I LoT A dear little child who made home happy by its smiles.

Welch Uo. Imposing Scene at the Capitol at Washington Thla Afternoon. Feb. 10. For the 27th time in the history of the United States, the senators and representative inet in solemn conclave In the hall of the House of Representatives to-day to declare the vote which silently transfers the government of a great nation from one set of rulers to another.

The capitol was crowded In anticipation of the ceremony which was to mark the day, bat excellent arrangements prevented confusion br the intrusion of uninvited visitors. The abandonment by Representative Murray; of South Carolina, of his previously announced intention to object to the counting of the vote of that state had the effect of decreasing general interest in the proceedings. The executive and diplomatic galleries were reserved for those entitled, to occupy them under the rules. Visitors began to enter the reserved space ut an early hour and by noon no seate remained vacant. For the accommodation of the Senate and its officers, one hundred additional chairs had been placed on the floor of the House.

The Senators occupied the first four rows on the right of the Vice-President who presided over the joint convention. Promptly at 1 o'clock the members of the Senate appeared at the north door, headed by Vice-President Stevenson, Ser-geant at-arms Bright, and Secretary Cox, and their presence was formally announced to the house by Doorkeeper Glean. The representatives rose to their feet and remained standing until the members of the upper house had found the places assigned to them. Next came two stalwart capital policemen bearing the mahogany box in which certificates of the result of the election in the several states had been placed by the Vice President as they had been received by him from the messengers appointed to bring them to the capitol, )No returns were missing, the last, from the state of Montana, having been received Vice-President Stevenson occupied the speaker's chair, Mr. Reed sitting at his left.

The tellers for the House were the governor of and Richardson, of Tennessee. For the Senate this duty was pefforined by tJenfittorfl Blackburn, of Kentucky, and Lodge, of Massachusetts. The Vice-President, with ceremonious solemnity, unlocked electoral box and took out the envelopes containing the certificates4 of the electoral colleges, each envelope -Being signed by all the electors of tfie several states and securely sealed. As each certificate was opened the vote of the state was announced and the tally was kept by the tellers of both tne Senate and House. When the dount was begun, the House I presented a most picturesque appearance with the senators all grouped on the right hand of the chair.

Senator Blackburn read the certificate in a monotonous tone, very different from his usual declamatory style. The length and tautology of some of the documents made this proceeding somewhat uninteresting. Senator Lodge alternated with Senator Blackburn in the reading without infusing much more animation into the ceremony. As the count proceeded and the House tellers, the governor and Richarjson, took a hatid, the reading of the full text of the certificates was abandoned, the tellers confining themselves to a simple statement of the result as diacloBedby the documents before them, this much condensing the formal proceedings. Senator Lodge infused a temporary streak of merriment into the proceedings by inadvertently casting the vote of Missouri for J.

McKinley" instead of W. J. Bryan. But he promptly corrected the error. It fell to tiie governor's lot to announce the nine votes of South Carolina for Bryan and Sewall.

As he did so an expectant silence fell on the assembly, but not a whisper ef protest was heard. The governor declared that the certificate appeared to be in proper form and jit was accepted. tJJAt 1 :50 p. m. the official count was announced as follows for President of the United States, William McKinley 271, William J.

Bryan 176. For Vice-President of the United States. Garrett A. Hobart 271. Arthur Sewall 149, Thomas E.

Watson 27. The Vice-President thereupon declared Wm HI, k'mlfw and tturrett A. Hobert respectively elected President and Vice-President of the United States. The Vice-President added that this declaration was in law sufficient and that the ioint session was now. adjourn ed and the Senate would return to its chamber.

A burst of loud clapping followed this statement and the great audience quietly dispersed. Put an end miwry. loan's Ointment will cure the worst case of Itching Piles there ever wu, Ar. i. ina'antl.
