IlAViiK, May 25. The officers en nr
resting O'JMcn, took him te a hotel In
stead of the jalL They dined together
, nnd then O'Brien was Riven a room en
;the third fleer nnd the landlord was
'warned net te allow the prisoner te
leave the hotel, llunce O'Brien is sup
- posed te have taken the 0:15 o'cleok
morning truin te Paris. He was noticed
reaming- the corridors of the hotel at
. 8 o'clock In the morning, hut finding all
"the doers closed he retired te his room.
At 5 o'clock the landlord was making
coffee for early patrons when O'Brien
suddenly appeared and asked for a glass
of cognac The landlord, startled at the
sudden apparition, asked him te go into
the restaurant, hut O'Brien hurriedly
drank the brandy and left the room
without paying for It, saying that he
would be back in the course of the morn-
5ng. Of ceurse he did riot return.
Anether story is that O'Brien after
arrest was permitted te take a walk ac
crjmpanled by two gendarmes. The
wily swindler, although his knowledge
of French Is crude, seen wen ever his
keepers by warmly admiring -every
thlntr'that wns French, and then with
a shrug of the shoulders, declaring tliat
the Germans were all "cochens" (pigs).
The gendarmes willingly acquiesced
when O'Brien finally suggested n rest
in a cafe and drank the wine which he
ordered se liberally. Soen the bunke
man excused himself for a moment, and
Ills pelite and possibly befuddled guar
dians were much surprised that he did
net return. The authorities are net
satisfied with this explanation, and sus
pecting that O'Brien bought his free
dom with money, have instituted a rigid

PeitTLAxn, Ore., May 25. Dr. Brlggs,
the famous Union seminary theologian,
walked for the first tlme Monday after
noon en the assembly fleer. He took a
prominent front seat among his judges.
The news floated through the crowd,
"Briggs Is here." This seen crowded
the fleer and gallery.
The feeling predominated that the
critical hour In Presbj'terinnism had ar
rived. After the Joint committee en the
Union seminary difficulty hnd reported
at length that a compromise had bcen
reached, six assembly members of the
joint committee presented a recommend
ation for a beard of arbitration.
Then the climax of the day came. Dr.
E. M. Kinsley, secretary of the directors
of Union seminary, walked upon the
platform amid profound silence nnd
slowly unfolded the ultimatum of the
Union semlnnry, formulated In the re ro
pert and appended memorial te the as

whispered admiringly. Reading slowly
Dr. Kinsley said:
"Dr. Brlggs has denied heresy accusa

two views of the trouble. We recom

Following the unsatisfactory report

finally demanded abrogation of the
compact and that Union be allowed In
dependence the same as it had prier te
1800. The memorial vigorously object
ed te the veto power of the assembly
ever the election of seminary professors
and objected te all supervision of semi
naries by the church.
The reading of these papers produced
a profound sensation. Actiptt was de
ferred until the seminary committee's
final report this week. The drift of the
assembly sentiment Is new ngalnst

Out a Life Murder Sentence.
Jeffehsenvillk, Ind., May 25. Ar
thur Biset, nn csenped convict after an
absence of twclve years returned te the
Prison Seuth Tuesdny morning of his
own accord. Biset was sentenced from
Bedford, Lnwrence county, for killing
the town marshal, and was given a life
sentence. He was then 18 years of age.
The murder was committed Christ
mas night, 1870. The sentence passed
upon Biset almost broke his mother's
heart, and she was taken 111 of brnln
fever. A long sickness followed, and
her physician became convinced that
the presence of her son would snve her
life. He was given a sixty days fur
lough by Gov. Williams upon the ns ns
surnnce that he would return te the
penitentiary within thnt time. Ills
mother recovered but Biset never re
turned te the penitentiary.
Mrs. Biset has made repeated efforts
te have her son pardoned, but in vain,
en the ground that Gov. Williams' con
fidence had been betrayed by the" fugi
tive. Upen leaving Bedford It appears
that he first went te Colerado, thence
te Mexico, where he has been engaged
In the practice of medicine.
Biset's old mother is still seeking his
pardon, but nil the governors te whom
she applied gave her the same answer,
that no premises would be made unless
Biset surrendered. Recently Gov. Chase
intimated that if Biset surrendered he
would pardon him, as he has been lead
ing a geed life. The peer old mother
desiring te sec the cloud removed from
her son's life, finally persuaded him te
return. He will probably be pardoned.
