WILL BE BUSY SESSION

publican Opposition to the Ship
Subsidy Steal Predicted.


Washington, NovemDier 24.-
Speed will be the ruling idea in the
House of Representatives this win-
ter and the right of tihe minority to
discuss the measures on which the
llou e is to pass will be sharply cur-
tailed in the process. Not that it
makes much difference, however, for
the House, as organized by the lhe-
publicans, is about as perfect a ma-
chine for registering the ideas of half
a dozen leaders as could well be die-
vised. Hence, there is every prom-
ise that in the three weeks before the
holidays the House will dispose of a
vast amount of legislation. All the
chairmen of important committees
arriving in town announce their
plans to have the notable measures
of the session prepared either as soon
as Congress meets or within a few
days thereafter, and in all probability
as soon as the President's message
has been read, the House will settle
to hard and continuous work. Last
year the Republicn s were proud of
passing the gold standard bill and
one or two appropriation bills before
the holiday recess. This year the
bill for the reduce tin of the war rev-
enues.taxes, the bII for the reorgani-
tion of the army, he river and har-
bor appropriation fill, the oleomarga-
rine bill, the In ian appropriation
bill and some of the appropriation
bills will probably be before the
House not later tfan the beginning
of the second week of the session.
It need not be surprising if most of
these measures h.le been sent to the
Senate before tht. holidays. With
the cloture rules in force it will be
entirely feasible fpr the house to dis-
of all these iills in two or three
ks, and thus *lear the decks for
eight or ten arge appropriation
ills that would remain to be dis-
posed of in Janu. -y and tile first half
of February'.
There will, it eems, be some op-
position to the ship subsidy steal on
the Republican side, but probably
not enough to enable the Democrats
to side track t. Representative
Burton, head of he Rivers and lar-
bors Committee, ,ho is the Hlepre-
tentative from S nator Hlanna's home
city, has declare< himself against it,
saying that he d es not believe. that
it can be passed but he stands en-
tirely alone so f r in expressing this
opinion. The provisions of the bill
are, of -counf scandalous. If
adopted, it wil be adopted in the
teeth of the re of the Republican
Commissioner Navigation, who,
curiously enough is in favor of the
bill, although h report contains in
"every line facts .hat prove the pros-
perity of Ameri n shipbuilding and
disprove the n -eswsty for the bill.
He says, for intnce, that for" the
first time since e civil war the docu-
mented tonna of theUnited States
exceeds 5,000, 00 gross tons. On
.une 30,1900, merican documented
tonnage compri d 28,333 vessels of
5,164,839 tons, an increase of 300,-
000 tons ove the previous fiscal
year. British ipping now amounts
to only 14,; 1,000 gross tons,
and the tonnage of American
shipping is [thus about one-
third of that 4 the great British
Empire with it far-reaching colonies
and its splendidi sea-going traditions.
The exports 4 the United States,
for whose carrying subsidies to
American shils are so loudly de-
manded, requpe only about one-
fifth of the jorl4's tonnage, while
British import require a far greater
amount. Finily on August 15,


1900, 68 merchant steel steam ves-
sels, aggregati g 278,000 tons, and
47 naval vessels, 113,000 tons dis-
placement, wre building or con-

This Building and Loan Associa-
tion has been in the past a great ben-
efit to Tallahassee and has enabled a
large number of men, on small sala-
ries, to build comfortable homes for
themselves, which they could not
have otherwise done.
It is thought that the whole num-
ber of shares will be taken in a very
short time, and all who are contem-
plating subscribing should be prompt
in making their application.

4XM,.,., -,-p a o t me rest, was omitte(i
in the- Hay-lPauncefote convention
and'in its place was substituted an-
other expressly prohibiting the
United States from fortifying the
canal. That is to say, the treaty
proposes that -the United States
should build the canal and leave it
free and unprotected to be seized by
the overwhelming might of Britain's
navy if trouble should ever arise be-
tween the two nations. Senator
l)avi.s discovered this fact and re-
ported to the Senate an amendment
putting the defensens" clause omitted
by Mr. Hlay back into the treaty.
Ilis advocacy of this will be sadly
missed when the instrument is taken
iqp this winter.
Commander Lucien Young, who
has charge mof the work of removing
the wreck of their Maine from iHavana
harbor has issued a circular asking
bids for the work, to be opened at
Havana at 12 o'clock noon on De-
cember 15, 1900. The use of ex-
plosives will be prohibited, and all
material pertaining to the wreck and
all accessories for the removal of the
same must he removed from the
harbor by April 1, 1901. Specifi-
cations and all available information
will be furnished upon application to
Commander Yoing. A certified
cheek for $1,000 will be rfluired to
accompany each proposal as a guar-
antee of good faith, to be returned
to the unsuccessful bidders upon the
award of the contract. The success-
ful bidder must give bond for *10,000
for faithful compliance with the
terms of the contract. It is Captain
Sigsbee's ilea that a coffer-damn
might be constructMd around the
wreck, thus affording easy means of
removing it without much work onl
the part of the divers and without
employing explosives. The removal
of the wreck is awaited with the
keenest interest for the promise it
affords of settling beyond dispute
the cause of the disaster.

Meeting of Building and Loan.
The Board of Directors of the
Building and Loan Association met4
last I'riday afternoon at the office of
the Treasurer, Mr. Geo. W. Saxon.
Several matters of importance were
traiisacted especially looking to the
closing up of the present series. The
treasurer announced that all active
shares in the Association could tbe
brought to maturity by the payment
of *17.81 per share. There was a
general disposition to close out this
series at once, by paying that amount
into the Association, and to open a
new series immediately. In discuss-
ing the question of opening a new
series, Mr. Saxon said that he thought
the present a most opportune time
for doing so as there had been num-
erous inquiries, as to when one would
be-started. He thought that we had
every reason to be encouraged over
the further outlook of Tallahassee.
That the railroad to Bainbridge was
practically assured and would 'be
running before the end of next year.
He spoke in every way most en-
couragingly of our future prospects.
After some further discussion, the
treasurer was ordered by the .direc-
tors to open the books for subscrib.-
ers to a new series. The number of
the shares of any series is limited by
the constitution to six hundred
shares. The treasurer as directed
opened his books for subscribers on
Monday, and, a large number of
shares were subscribed on the first
day.

(hoe Ceue.M
Washington, November 18&-The
election amide, the most important
event during the past week ha* been
the announcement of the Genus
totas for the United States a for
theaseveral States, for on thee will
be based the representation f the
States in Congress and in th elec-
toral college during the coming ten
ear. Of course the determination
of the total number of congressmen
depends entirely on Congress, which
may make it whatever it pleases.
There is however, some reaaon to
suppose that there will be an addi-
tion of about thirty members to the
House, as this is the least number
Possible that will not require the
representation of any State to be cut
down. If this number is adopted,
the total in the House will be 887
and the total electoral vote will be
477, necessary to a choice 289. Of
the increase of thirty, the New Ing-
land States will get two, the east
seven, the middle west eight, the far
west three and the south ten. This
phenomenal increase in the south was
not expected and will certainly
cause a renewal of the efforts to cut
down the representation of that sec-
tion in accordance with the number
of negro voters assumed to have
been. disqualified under illiteracy
clauses. As the Republicans have
full control of all branches of the
government at present, there will in
all probability be a bitter fight be-
fore this matter is finally decided.
The membership of the House
may be increased further by the ad-
dition of one, two or three States.
Oklahoma is the most promising
aspirant for Statehood. A(cordinig
to the census returns Oklahonia has
398,245 inhabitants, which wouldI en-
title it to two members of Congress
if it were admitted, and,. as it is cus-
tomary to admit States when they
have more people than necessary for
a Congressional district, it is safe to
assume that Oklahoma will soon be
granted Statehood. It has a larger
population than Delaware, Idaho,
Montana, Nevada, North Dakota,
Utah, Vermont or Wyoming and al-
most as large as Rhode Island or
Oregon. In fact, the population of
Montana, Nevada and Wyoming
combined is exceeded by that of Ok-
lahoma, and while these have three
members in the House and six Sena-
tors, Oklahoma has no representa-
tion in either Chamber, except a del-
egate in the House, who hus no vote.
New Mexico has nearly as many res-
sidents as a Congressional district-
193,777-and may be allowed to
enter the Union, while Arizona is
climbing upward with 122,212 in-
habitants. All three may be ad-
mitted before the election of 1904,
and if so, the following electoral col-
lege will consist of 487 votes, with
244 necessary to elect.

The railroads have been applied to

be granted. In any event, all who
intend coming should apply at once

trial corporations to attend this gath-
ering, the object being to assemble
here all the vital forces that enter
into tie industrial or business life of
the South.
The purpose of the convention is
to promote union of sentiment and
effort, for the industrial upbuilding of
the South. It is sought through such
an assemblage to secure a policy that
will induce the South to manufacture
her own raw materials, on her own
soil and by her own people. It has
no selfish ends to serve, no private
interests to advance; neither has it
any class to benefit or antagonize,
but through this agency to reach
public sentiment for the advancement
of all interests and the protection of
all classes throughout our fair land.
We believe no stronger obligation
rests upon the citizen at this time,
than to seek the fulfillment of these
ends and purposes. We feel that
this should be brought home to all

"I decided that it was a good idea.
and we put out a bull quart of whisky
fur 'em. but fur some reason they had
left the nayburhood. The old woman
reckoned they'd got ashamed of them-

"Did you ever realize that the .sue-

through hard work?" asked the philos-

hard toil. but few do. and I doubt If
those few gain any pleasure from hav-

only the other day. I chanced during

AVERTED A TIPAGEDY.
The Nerve Disp!nyed by Daniel
O'Connell at a Critical Moment.
Daniel O'Connell. the famous Irish
agitator, had a contempt for physical
danger. On a certain occasion a meet-
ing had been convened, and a large
crowd assembled in a room on the first
floor of a building in a small city in
Ireland.
O'Connell was about to address the
people when a gentleman, pale with
fear, made his way to the platform and
hoarsely whispered:
"Liberator, the floor is giving way!
The beams that shore it up are crack-
Ing. and we shall fall through in a few
minutes!"
"Keep silent." said O'Connell. Then
raising his voice he addressed the as
sembly:
"I find that the room is too small to
contain the number who desire to come

    LET US AID lMM.
    On the first page of this issue
    President Jacob R. Cohen pub,
    lishes a call for a meeting of the
    Young Meihs' Business League, to
    be held at City Hall tomorrow (Fri-
    day) night. The object of the meet-
    ing is to rehabilitate the League,
    which has been, so to speak, in a
    comatos state for some time, and
    take immediate action upon several
    matters which require speedy ac-
    tion.
    .There may be some who do not
    realize the attitude in which Talla-
    hassee has been placed by recent
    ents, and to. sup'h-if any there
    b -we desire toinvite especial at-
    tl'ntion.
    The very' flattering majority we
    rogeived ins" the Capital location
    pfinary-when .three of the larg-
    est, wealthiest and most influential
    cities in the State fought for-and
    would have felt honored by a plural-
    ity victory-should make us feel, and
    really does place us under renewed
    obligations to the people as the seat
    of their government. This being
    true, we should leave nothing un-
    done to make Tallahassee a repre-
    sentative city of the wealth and wis-
    dom that clusters about us and looks
    hitherward for central government.
    This can only be accomplished
    through united-or thoroughly or-


    part of the first chapter and the
    reader is kgptguesing all through to
    the very last chapter, as to the final
    outcome. It is chaste, but so thrill-
    ing that the reader will regret that it
    must end.


    . The Baltimore Sun, the most con-
    servative newspaper in the United
    States, says: "It has been and still
    is the fashion of bitter partisans to
    denounce Mr. Bryan as a demagogue,
    as an extremist, as showy, but with-
    out depth or breadth of intellect. In
    every position which he has assumed
    in this campaign and in every policy
    he advocated he can give Jefferson,
    Jackson and other great Democrats
    as precedents. If in the cause he
    maintained in this campaign he was
    a demagogue, then Jefferson was a
    demagogue. If in his opposition to
    the money power he is arraying class
    against class what shall be said of
    Jackson and Taney in their cam-
    paigns against the,banks?"
    The editor of the TALLAHASSEEAN
    realizes that there ae numerous people
    in this section who know more about
    running a newspaper than he does.
    The editor has simply been a little
    more daring in the matter, and has
    staked his worldly affairs upon his
    judgment, while those of superior
    knowledge have refused to back it
    with their means. To some this may
    seem "a distinction without a differ-
    ence," but to the man dealing in
    newspaper space as his only stock in
    trade it has a significance that
    prompts him to follow his own ileas,
    even though they call down upon
    his unrighteous, head mountains of


    ganized-efforts. In this respect -

    Seaboard Improvements.
    Col. A. Pope, assistant general
    passenger agent of the Seaboard Air
    Line, was in the city last week. The
    condition of our passenger depot was
    called to his attention, and was to
    him a revelation that called forth em-
    phatic expressions of surprise and
    disapproval. From what he said to
    prominent citizens it is expected that
    we will soon have a new one, or
    there will be great improvements
    made in the old one.
    There is certainly much room for
    improvement. Tallahassee has been
    a long suffering community in this
    respect and her emancipation is
    looked forward to with great inter-
    est and anxiety. It cannot come too
    soon.

    CHAPTER 1.
    The first time I met her I was a re-
    porter in the embryonic state and she
    was a girl in short dresses. It was In
    a garden surrounded by high red brick
    walls which were half hidden by clus-
    ters of green vines and at the base of
    which nestled earth beds radiant with
    Voses and poppies and peonies and
    bushes of lavender lilacs, all spilling
    their delicate ambrosia on the mild air
    of passing May. I stood, straw hat In
    hand, wondering If I had not stumbled
    into some sweet prison of flower
    which, having run disobedient ways In
    the past, had been placed here by Flo-
    ra -and forever denied their native
    meadows and wildernesses. And this
    vision of fresh youth In my path, per-
    haps she was some guardian nymph. I
    was only 22,. a most Impressionable
    age. Her hair was like that rare Oe-
    tober brown, half dun, half gold; her
    eyes were cool and restful, like the
    brown pools one iees in the heart of
    the forests, and her lips and cheeks
    cozened the warm vermilion of the
    rose which lay ever so lightly on the
    bosom of her white dress. Close at
    hand was a table upon which stood a
    pitcher of lemonade. She was holding
    in her hand an empty glass. As my
    eyes encountered her calm, Inquiring
    gaze my courage fled precipitately,!
    likewise the object of my errand.
    There was a pause; diffidence and em-'
    barrassment on my side, placidity on'
    . hers.
    "Well, sir?" said she in a voice the;
    tone of which implied that she could '
    readily understand her presence in the
    garden, but not mine.
    As I remember it. I was suddenly
    seized with a great thir.t. "I should
    like a glass of your lenijnad'." I an-
    swered. bravely laying down !hhe only
    piece of money I possess"ed. Ilr s.'rn
    lips parted in a smile. amnd my e:::rg:;
    came back cautiously-thlat is to sa-y.
    by degrees. She filled a glass for me.
    and as I gulped it down I could al-
    most detect the flavor of lemon and
    sugar.
    "It is very good." I volunteered, pass-
    Ing back the glass. I held out my
    hand. smiling.
    "There isn't any change." coolly.
    I flushed painfully. It was fully four
    miles to Newspaper row. I was con-
    scious of a sullen pride. Presently the
    object of my errand returned. Some-
    what down the path I saw a gentleman
    reclining in a canvas swing. "Is that
    Mr. Wentworth?" I asked.
    "Yes. Do you wish to speak to him?
    Uncle Bob. here is a gentleman who
    desires to speak to you."
    I approached. "Mr. Wentworth," I
    began, cracking the straw in my hat.
    "my name is John Winthrop. I amn a
    reporter. I have-called to see if it is true
    that you have declined the Italian port-
    folio."
    "It is true." he replied kindly. "There
    are any number of reasons for. my de-
    clining it. but I cannot make them pub-
    lic. Is that all?"
    "Yes, sir; thank you," and I backed
    away.
    "Are you a reporter?" asked the girl
    as I was about to pass by her.
    "Yes, I am."
    "Do you draw pictures?"
    "No, I do not"
    "Do you write novels?"
    "No." with a nervous laugh.
    There is nothing like the process of
    interrogation to make one person lose
    interest in another.
    "Oh, I thought perhaps you did," she
    said and turned her back to me. I
    passed through the darkened halls of
    the house and into the street. I never
    expected to see her again, but it was
    otherwise ordained. We came together
    three years later at Block Island. She
    was IS now. gathering the rosy flowers
    of her lir:t season. She reicmlbt'red
    the incid,;nt in tihe garden. and w.

    appealed to my poetic instinct. Per-
    haps that was the cause of it all. And
    then she was very beautifuL In the
    autumn of that year we became great
    friends, and through her influence I
    began to see beyond the portals of the
    mansions of the rich. Matthew Prior's
    Chloes and Sir John Suckling's Euphe-
    has lost their charms. Henceforth my
    muse's name became Phyllis. I took
    her to, the opera when I didn't know
    where I was going to breakfast on the
    morrow. I sent her roses and went
    without tobacco, a privation of which
    woman knows nothing. Often I was
    plunged Into despair at my distressed
    ckdruewasce" Money to her meant
    something to spend; to me it meant
    something to get. Her income bother-
    ed her because she could not spend it;
    my income was mortgaged a week in
    ad-ance and did not bother me at all.
    This was the barrier at my lips. But
    her woman's intuition must have told
    her that she was a part and parcel of
    my existence.
    I had what is called a forlorn hope--
    a rich uncle who was a planter in Lou-
    isiana. His son and I were his only
    heirs. But this old planter had a mor-
    tal antipathy to my side of the family.
    When my mother, his sister, married
    Alfred Winthrop in 1859. at the time
    when the north and south were ap-
    proaching the precipice of a civil war,
    he considered all family ties obliterat-
    ed. We never worried much about it.
    When mother died. he softened to the
    extent of being present at the funeral.
    He took small notice of my father, but
    offered to adopt me if I would assume
    his name. I clasped my father's hand
    in mine and said nothing. The old
    man stared at me for a moment, .then
    left the house. Ti::it oic's the lirst and
    last time I ever :.iw hila. Sometimes I
    wondered if l \eomi:ii r',niithe.r mtie inl

    even tenor of my way ceased to be. I
    appreciated how far she was above me,
    so I worshiped her silently and from

    after my second meeting with Phyl!!..
    I sat at my desk in the otlice. It was
    raining, a cold thin rmin. The window
    was blurred. The water in the steam
    pipes went banging awa y. I was com-
    posing an editorial which treated the
    Diplomatic relations between this coun-
    try and England. The roar of Park
    row distracted me. Now and then I
    Mrould go to the window and peer down
    pn the living stream below. A dense
    Loud of steam hung over all the city.
    | swore some when the copy boy came
    in and said that there were yet a col-
    umn and a half to fill and that the
    foreman wanted to "close up the page
    early." The true cause of my Indispo-
    sition was due to the rumors rife in the
    office that morning. Rumors which
    emanate from the managing editor's
    room are usually of the sort which bur-
    den the subordinate ones with anxiety.
    The London correspondent was "going
    to pieces." He had cabled that he was
    suffering from nervous prostration,
    supplementing a request for a two
    months' leave of absence. For "nerv-
    ous prostration" we read "drink." Our
    London correspondent was a brilliant
    journalist. He had written one or two
    clever books. He had it broad knowl-
    edge of men an.dl affairs, and his pen
    was one of those which ti.shed; a-i

    The copy boy said there were vet a column

    quest of them. The crust is hyssop
    when the heart is young. The garret
    is a palace when hope flies unfettered.
    The most wonderful dreams imagina-
    ble are dreamed close to the eaves.
    And when a man leaves behind him
    the garret he also leaves behind the
    foadest Illusions. But who-who would
    stay in the garret?
    And as my thoughts ran on the ques-
    tion rose. Whom would they send in
    Is place-Dan's? I knew London. It
    was familiar ground. Perhaps they
    might send me. It was this thought
    which unsettled me. .1 was perfectly
    satisfied with New York. Phyllis lived
    in New York. There would be time
    enough for London when we were mar-
    ried. Then I began to build air cas-
    tles. A newspaper man is the archi-
    tect of some splendid structures, but
    he thoughtlessly builds on the sand
    when the tide Is out. Yes; foreign cor-
    responding would be all well enough, I
    mused, with Phyllis at my side. With
    her as my wife I should have the envy
    of all my fellow craftsmen. We should
    dine at the embassies, and the attaches
    would flutter about us. and all London
    would talk of the beautiful "Mrs. Win-
    throp." Then the fire in my pipe bowl
    went out. The copy boy was at my el-
    bow again.
    "Hang you!" said I.
    "The foreman says he's coming down
    with an ax." replied the boy.
    It was like churning, but I did man-
    age to grind the copy. I was satisfied
    that 11 e I'iited States and (;re it Brit-

    Dear Jack-Uncle Bob has a box for the oper.
    tonight, but he has been suddenly called to Wash-
    ington-politis. possibly, but he would not say.
    Aunty and I want you to go with us in his stead.
    Ethel and her fiance, Mr. Holland, will be to-
    gether, which means that amiunty and I will have
    no one to talk to unless you come. "Cannrmen" is
    to be sung. Please do not fail me. PHYLUS.
    Fail her! I thought not.
    Tht'n I read the second letter. I
    read it three or four times, and even
    then I was not sure that I was not
    dreaming. I caught up my pipe again.
    filled it and lit it. I read the letter
    once more. I was solemnly informed
    that my uncle was dead and that I
    was mentioned in the will and that if
    I would kindly call at the Hoffman
    House the following morning a certain
    sum of money would be given to me.
    *I regretted that I had reached that age
    when a man's actions must be digni-


    fled although alone; otherwise I dare
    say I should have danced the pas seul.
    Whatever my uncle's bequest might
    be, I believed that it would make me
    Independently rich. Phyllis was scarce-
    ly an arm's length away now. I whis.
    tied as I locked up my desk and pro.
    ceeded down stairs and sang a siren
    song Into the waxen ears of the cashier.
    "You have only twenty coming this
    week. Mr. Winthrop," said he.
    "Never mind," I replied. "I'll man-
    age to get along next week." It was
    only on very rare occasions that I drew
    my full pay at the end of the week. I

    In my bedroom the next morning
    there was a sad and heavy heart. The
    owner woke up. stared at the ceiling.
    then at the sun baked bricks beyond
    his window. He saw not the glory of
    the sun and the heavens. To his eyes
    there was nothing poetic In the Sash of
    the distant church spires against the
    billowy cloud banks. The gray doves.
    circling about the chimneys, did not in-
    spire him nor the twittering of the
    sparrows on the window ledge. There
    was nothing at all in the world but a
    long stretch of barren, lonely years.
    And he wondered how without her at
    his side he ever could traverse them.
    He was driftwood again. He had built
    upon sands as usual, and the tide had
    come in; his castle was flotsam and
    Jet:saw. He was drifting, and be didn't

    SMy breakfast consisted of a cup of
    coffee, and as the generous nectar
    warmed my veins my thoughts took a
    phlosophUcal turn. It is fate who
    writes the was, the tos and the shall be.
    We have a proverb for every joy and
    misfortune. It is the only consolation
    fate gives us. It Is like a conqueror
    asking the vanquished to witness the
    looting. All roads lead to Rome, and
    all proverbs are merely signposts by
    which we pursue our destinies. And
    how was I to get to Rome? I knew
    not. Hope is better than clairvoyance.
    Was Phyllis right when she said that
    I did not truly love her? I believed
    not. Should I go on loving her all my
    life? Undoubtedly I. should. As to
    affnities I had met mine, but it had
    proved a one sided affair.
    It was after 10 by the clock when I
    remembered that I was to meet the
    lawyer, the arbiter of my new for-
    tunes. Money Is a balm for most

    t's worth. You will feel no little satis-

    The oldest inhabitant will be silenced

    that you will forgive me my part in the
    matter. I have taken a fancy to you.
    and if you will accept my friendship I
    shall be happy to accept yours. Your

    "'The devil take it!" I cried- I flung
    the cigar out of the window and laid
    the check on my desk. Courage? Why.
    it needed the courage of a millionaire
    to light a cigar with a $1.000 Obeck!
    The office boy. who came'in then.
    was salvation. The managitig editor
    wanted to see me. I sprang up with
    alacrity. Anything but the eight of
    that figure 1 and the three de on eyes
    of that $1.000 check! I
    "Winthrop." said the managing ed-
    itor to me as I entered his office.
    "you've got to go to London.. Hillars
    has gone under"-
    "Not dead!" I cried.
    "No. no! He has had to give up
    work temporarily on account If drink.
    If it was any other man. I'd t row him
    over in short order. But I fel sorry
    for Hillars. and I am going to kive him
    another chance. I want you t6 go over
    and take care of him if possible. The
    London work is not new to you. You
    can handle that and Iillars too. If
    you can keep him in check"-
    I shuddered. The word "'check" jar-
    red on my nerves.
    "What's the matter?" asked the edi-


    tor.
    "A temporary chill." I said. -
    "Well. If you can manage V

    "Your uncle had seen some of .,o..
    signed articles In New -York papers
    and said that in all probability I should
    find you here., A few Inquiries sot -me
    on your track." Here he pulled out a
    lengthy document from his handbag.
    "I confess, however," he added, "that
    I am somewhat disappointed In your
    looks."
    "Disappointed in my lookal" was my
    cry. "What sprt of a duffer p you
    expecting to see?"
    He laughed. "Well, your un*e4Fave

    "If that is the case. what undei*'he

    The merriment went out of the old
    man's face, and his eyes became grave.
    "Of that anon.' Let me proceed with
    .my business and read the will to you.
    You will find it rather a remarkable
    'document."
    I settled back In my chair to a wait-
    Ing attitude. To tell the truth. I was
    somewhat confused by all this pream-
    ble. To his son my uncle left the bulk
    of his property, which amounted to
    more than $1,.000.000. I was listless.
    The head overseer received the munifi-
    cent sum of $50.000. To the butler, the
    housekeeper and the cook he gave $10.'-
    000 each. I began to grow interested.
    He was very liberal to his servants.
    Several other names were read. .and
    my interest assumed the color of anxi-
    ety. WhVien the lawyer stopped to un-,
    fold the liast fnap. I spoke.
    "And wlere in the world do I come

    Special Election la Jackson.
    Mr. W. J. Kehoe was elected as a'
    Representative from Jackson county
    to the next session of the Legislature,
    at the recent election, but as the law
    Drobibits a man holding two State
    positions, he tendered his resigna-
    tion as such, upon receipt of a subse-
    quent appointment as State Solicitor
    for the First Judicial District. Mr.
    Kehoe's friends will be glad to learn
    of his appointment, but regret to
    learn that he will not be in the Legis-
    lature.

    as Representative their will be a

    Press Comments.
    The Tampa Herald wants it dis-
    tinctly understood, and it is right in
    the position it assumes, that it is in
    favor of a sufficient appropriation by
    the Legislature when it assembles to
    make the capitol building at Talla-
    hassee fit for the purposes for which
    it is used. The understanding was
    that if the capital was not moved
    this would be done. The Herald
    wanted the capital moved, but as
    that will niot be, let us have a build-
    ing that will not be incommodious
    and unfit for the use of the Legisla-.
    ture and State officers.--Ex.
