Being a Full and True Account of the Solution of
the Mystery Concerning the Jeffrey-Moore Affair.
Author of "The Leavenworth Case," etc.' %e ISbbf?M3 Co.
The first chapter of "The Filigree Ball" gives
an account of mysterious occurrences In the
old mansion In Washington at the wedding of
Miss Veronica Moore, owner of the house, and
Mr. Jeffrey, both of well-known Washington
families. David Moore, one of the Moore family,
one night informs the detective who relates
the story, that a light has been seen in one of
the windows of the gloomy house. H* enters
the house, accompanied by an officer, and finds
the dead body of a lady in the library. It proves
to be that of Veronica Moore, who had been
married two weeks before. To gratify a whim
the ceremony had been performed in the old
house, the festivities having wound up in a panic
on account of the finding of the dead body of a
stranger in a room full of tragic memories and
usually kept closed. The detective finds a long
white ribbon tied around the bride's right
wrist, and attached to a pistol which
lay on the floor. The bulled bad
pierced her heart. Sending the offi
cer to headquarters for help, he pursues bis
investigation. He notes an odd feature of the
library mantel, explores the dining-room with its
dismal remains of the wedding feast, finds an
open window and following a trail of burnt
matches comes to the room upstairs where lights
had been soen. Here a lighted candle* was
found and in the big old-fashioned bed a lady's
wrap and the withered remains of a bridal
bouquet- tied with white satin ribbons similar to
that found on the murdered woman'8 wrist. Evi
dently she had dressed in tW room.
He said that she was probably the sis
ter of the woman, who lay inside. Upon
which I remembered that this 4ady. under
the name of r Miss Tuttleshe was but
half-sister to Miss Moore-Hiad been re
peatedly mentioned by the reporters, in
the accounts of the wedding, before men
tioned, as a person of superior attainments
and magnifieeht' beauty.
, This did not take, from my interest, and
flinging decorum to the winds, I ap
proached as near as possible to the
threshold whioh she must soon cross. As
I did so I was astonished to hear the
strains of Uncle David's organ still peal
ing from the opposite side of the way.
This at a moment so serious and while
matters of apparent consequence were
taking place in the house to which he
had himself directed the attention of the
police, struck me as carrying stoicism to
the extreme/ Net very favorably im
pressed by this display of open if not in
sulting indifference on the part of
the sole remaining Moore,indif
ference . which did not appear
natural even " in a man of his
morbid eccentricityI resolved to know
more of this old man and, above all, to
make myself fully acquainted with the
exact relations which had existed between
him and his unhappy niece.
Meanwhile Miss.,,Tuttle had stepped
within the circle at light cast by our
I have never seen a finer woman, nor
one whose feature's displayed a more
heartrending emotion. This called for
respect, and I, for one, endeavored to how
it by withdrawing into the background.
But I soon stepped forward again. My
desire to understand her was too great,
the impression made by her bearing too
complex, to be passed over lightly by one
on the lookout for a key to the remarkable
tragedy before us. "
Meanwhile her lips had opened with the
"My sister! Where is my sister?"
The captain made a hurried movement
toward the rear and then with the laud
able intention, doubtless, of preparing
her for the ghastly" sight which awaited
her, returned and
The Forbidden Room.
CHAPTER III.Continued.
I Remain.
This handkerchief had an interest apart
from the name on it. It was of dainty
texture and quite in keeping, so far as
value went, with the other belongings of
its fastidious owner. But it was not clean.
Indeed it was strangely soiled, and this
soil was of a nature I did not readily
understand. A woman would doubtless
have comprehended Immediately the cause
of the brown streaks I found on it, but
it took me several minutes to realize that
this bit of cambric, delicate as a cob
web, had been used to remove dust. To
remove dust! Dust from what? From
the mantel shelf probably, upon one end:
of which I found it. But no! one look
along the polished boards convinced me
that whatever else had been dusted in
this room this shelf had not. The ac
cumulation of days, if not of months,
was visible from one end to the other
of its unrelieved surface save where the
handkerchief had lain, andthe greatest
discovery yetwhere five clear spots Just
to the lef.t of the center showed where
some man's finger tips had rested. Noth
ing but the pressure of finger tips could
have caused just the appearance pre
sented by these spots. By scrutinizing
them closely I could even tell where the
thumb had rested, and at once foresaw
the possibility of determining, by means
of these marks both the size and shape
of the hand which had left behind it so
neat and unmistakable a clue.
Wonderful! but what did it all mean?
Why should a man rest his finger tips on
this out-of-the-way shelf? Had he done
so in an effort to balance himself for a
look up the chimney? No for then the
marks made by his fingers would have'
extended to the edge of the shelf, where
as these were in the middle of It. Their
shape, too, was round, not oblong hence
the pressure had come from above and
ah! I had it, these impressions in the
dust^of- the shelf Were" Jfisf such"as would
be made by a-person steadying himself
for a close look at the old picture. And
this accounted also for the overturned
chair, and for the handkerchief used as
a duster. Some one's interest in this pic
ture had been greater than mine some
one who was either very near-sighted or,
whose temperament was such that only
the closest inspection would satisfy an
aroused curiosity.
This gave me an idea, or rather im
pressed upon me the necessity of pre
serving the outline of these tell-tale
marks while they were still plain to the
eye. Taking out my penknife, I lightly
ran the point of my sharpest blade around
each separate impression till I had fixed
them for all time In the'well worn varnish
of the mahogany.
This done, my thoughts recurred to the
question already raised. What was there
in this Old picture to arouse such curios
ity in one bent on evil if not fresh from
a hideous crime? I .have said before that
the picture as a picture was worthless,
a mere faded sketch fit only for
lumbering up some old garret.
Then wherein lay its charma charm
which I myself had felt, tho not. to this
extent? It was useless to Conjecture. A
fresh difflculty had' been added to my
task by this puzzling discovery, but dif
ficulties only increased my interest. It
was with an add feeling of elation that,
in a further examination of this room, I
came upon two additional facts equally
odd and irreconcilable.
One was the presence' of a penknife with
the file blade open, on a small table under
the window marked by the loosened shut
ter. Scattered, about it were some filings
which shone as the light from my lantefh
fell upon them, but which were so fine
as to call for a magnifying glass to make
them out. The other was In connection
with a closet not far from the great bed.
It was an empty closet so far as the hooks
went and the. two great drawers which I
found standing half open at is back but
in the middle of the floor lay an over
turned candelabrum similar to the one
below but with its prisms scattered and
its one candle crushed and battered out
of all shape on the blackened. boards. If
upset while alight, the foot which had
stamped upon it in a wild endeavor to
put out the flames had been, a frenzied
one. Now, by whom had this. frenzy
been shown, and when? Within the hour?
I could detect no smell of smoke. At some
former time, then?
into the drawing room. But she wasnot
to be turned aside from her course. Pass
ing him by, she made directly for the
library whioh she entered with a bound.
Struck by her daring, we all crowded up
behind her, and, curious brutes that we
were, grouped ourselves in a semicircle
about the doorway as she faltered toward
her sister's outstretched form and fell
on her knees beside. it. Her involutary
shriek and the fierce recoil she made as
her eyes fell on the long white ribbon
trailing over the floor from her sister's
wrist, struck me as voicing the utmost hor
ror of which the human. soul is capable.
It was as tho her very soul were pierced.
Something in the fact itself, something in
the appearance of this snowy ribbon tied
to the scarce whiter wrist, seemed to
pluck at the very root of her being and
when her glance, in traveling its length,
lighted on the death-dealing weapon at its
end, she cringed in such apparent anguish
that we looked to see her fall,in a swoon
or break out into delirium. We were cor
respondingly startled when she suddenly
burst forth with this word of stern com
"Untie that knot! . Why do you leave
that drfadful thing fast to -her Untie it.
I say, it is killing'lfte I can not'bear the
sight." And from trembling she passed
^o^s^vtAAetm^^misssee^^cim^m^y shook}
The captain,, with much consideration,
drew bapk the hand he had- impulsively
stretched toward the- ribbon..
"No, no," he. protested "we can not do
.that , we can do nothing- till the
coroner comes. It is
he should see her1
on the. day of
the bridal? '....'i'.
Glancing from the broken candle at my
feet to the one giving its last sputter in
the tumbler on the ' dressing table, I
owned myself perplexed.
Surely, no ordinary explanation fitted
these extraordinary and seemingly con
tradictory circumstanoes.
Signed, Veronica.
I am' in some ways hypersensitive.
Among my other weaknesses I have a
wholesome dread of ridicule, and this
is probably why I failed to. press my
theory on the captain when he 'appeared,
and even forbore to mention the various
small matters which had so attracted my
attention. If he and the experienced
men'who came with him saw suicide
and nothing but suicide in this lamentable
shooting of a bride of two weeks, then it
was not for me to .suggest a deeper crime,
especially as one of the latter eyed me
with open scorn when I proposed to ac
company them upstairs into the room
where the light had been seen burning.
No. I would keep my discoveries to my
self, or* at least, forbear to mention them
till I found the captain alone, asking
nothing at this juncture.but permission
to remain m the house. till Mr. Jeffrey
I had been told that an officer had gone

Washington, June 16.The interstate
commerce commission has prepared a
summary of its report for the year end

freight 111,089,347. The gross earnings of
all the roads for the year was $1,726,380,-
267, and the gross expenses $1,116,24$,-
747. The total dividends declared for the

Casualties to persons oh account of rail
way- accidents were 73,250, including 8,588
killed and 64,642 injured. Of railway em
ployes, 2,969 were killed and 50,524 were
injured. Passengers killed were 345 and
6/683 injured. One
just as sh was
found. Besides, Mr. Jeffrey has a right
to the same privilege. We." expect him
any moment."
The beautiful head, of the woman before
us. shook involuntarily, but her lips made
no protest. I doubt if she possessed the
power of speech at that moment. A
change, subtle, but quite perceptible, had
taken place in her emotions at mention of
her sister's husband, and. tho she exerted
herself to remain, calm, the effort seemed
too much for her strength. Anxious to
hide this evidence of weakness, sho rose
impetuously and then we saw how tajl
she was, how the long lines of her cloak
became her, and what a glorious creature
she was altogether. /
"It will kill him," she groaned in a
deep inward voice. Then, with a certain
forced haste and in a tone of surprise
which to my ear had not quite a natural
ring, she called aloud on her who could no
longer either listen- or answer:
"Oh, Veronica, Veronica! What cause
had you for death? And why do we find
you lying here in a spot you so feared and
_ "Don't you know?" insinuated the cap
tain, with a mild persuasiveness, sueh as
he was seldom heard to use. "Do you
mean that you can not account for vour
sister's violent end, you, who have lived
with heror so I. have been toldever
since her marriage with Mr. Jeff rev?"
. "Yes." - * -
Keen and clear the word rang out, fierce
in its keenness and almost too clear to
be in keeping with the half choked tones
with which she added: "I know that
she was not happy, that she.never has
been happy alnce the shadow which this
room suggests fell upon her marriage. But
how could I so much as dream that
her dread of the past or her fear of the
future would drive her to suicide, and in
this place of all places. Had i done so
had I imagined in the least degree that she
was affected to this extentdo vou think
that I would have left her for one in
stant alone? None of us knew that she
contemplated death. She had no appear
ance of it she laughed when I"
What had she,.been about to say? The
captain seemed to wonder, and after wait
ing in vain for the completion of her
Sentence, he quietly suggested:
"You have not finished what vou had
to say, Miss Tuttle."
She started and seemed to come back
from some remote region of thought into
which she had wandered., "I don't know
I forget," she stammered, with a heart
broken sigh. "Poor Veronica. Wretched
Veronica. How shall I ever tell him. How,
how, can we ever prepare him."
The captain took advantage of this ref
erence to Mr. Jeffrey to ask Where that
gentleman was. The y^ung lady did not
seem eager to reply, but when pressed,
answered, tho somewhat mechanically,
that it was impossible for her to say Mr.
Jeffrey had many friends with any one

Writ of Quo Warranto Against Them Is
Jefferson City, Mo., June 16.The su
preme court has quashed the writ of quo
warranto in the case of Attorney General
Crow against the Missouri Pacific, Santa
Fe and eleven other railroad companies.
This is the reconsignment case. Jt is a
victory for the railroads, in that the court
sustained the plea that this proceeding
was prosecuted solely for the vindication
of private rights and the redress of pri
vate grievances, and therefore ordered the
writ quashed. The court holds that a
wrong to a private individual or individu
als cannot be corrected by a quo warranto
proceeding. The court says that the stat
ute provides ample relief for remedy of
such private wrongs as are complained of
in this proceeding at the hands of the rail
road and warehouse commissioners. Con
tinuing, the court says that qua warranto
is to determine by what right a corpora
tion exercises wrongfully or illegally a
certain franchise or to oust it from the
right to be a corporation, for an abuse
or non-use of a franchise granted.^
