KE RUE MORGE~ ne present not less with horror than with stonishment. ''The apartment was in the wildest dim rder-the furniture broken and throwni bout in all directions. There was on-ly one edstead; and from this the bed had been emoved and thrown into the middle of the oor. On a chair lay a razor. besmeared pith blood. On the hearth were two or 'iree long and thick tresses of gray human air, also dabbled in blood and seeming to ave been pulled out by the roots. Vpon 'ie floor were found four Napoleons, an arring of topaz, three large silver spoons. bree smaller of metal d'Alger and two ags, containing nearly four thousand rancs in gold. The drawers of a bureau, rhich stood in one corner, were open, and ad been apparently rifled, although many rtic'es still remained in them. A small con safe was discovered under the bed (not nder the bedstead). It was open, f*ith the .ey still in the door. It had no contents eyond a few old letters and other papers f little consequence. "Of Madame L'Espanaye no traces were ere seen; but an unusual quanUty of soor eing observed In the fireplace, a search r'as made in the chimney, and' (horrid to elate!) the corpse of the daughter, head ownward, was dragged therefro'm, it hav rig been thus forced up the narrow aper ure for a considerable distance. The body ras quite warm. Upon examinirig It many xcoriations were perceived, no doubt oc asioned by the v'iolence with which it had *een thrust up a.nd disengaged. Upon the ace were rmany severe scratches, and, upon he throat dark bruises and deep indenta ions of finger nails, as if deceased had been brottled to death. "After a thorough investigation of every ostion of the house, without farther dig overy, the party made its way into a small ased yard in the rear of the building, where lay' the eorp.e of the old lady, with mr theat me anUaw,a' aCse that san an PATRIOTIC TOPICS ADDRZOSES BEFOUE SONS 03 THE AXERZCAN REVOLUTION. First Fall Meeting of the Organization Held LAst Evening-Large Attendance. An exhibition of eloquence, expressive of lofty sentiments, marked the first winter meeting of the Sons of the American Rev olution. which was held last night aot Rauscher's. The speaker was Judge John Goode, whom Inspector General Breckin -ridge, the presiding officer ft the evening, introduced as "the Nestor of the American bar and one of Virginia's most notable sons." ahd the address concerned the ter centenary of the settlement of Jamestown, the progress Which has marked the three hundred years of America's history, and the promise of the ensuing century viewed In the light of the past fifty years. Judge Goode spoke extemporaneously. Many circumstances contributed to make the occasion notable. The meeting called together about 20) members of the local chapter of the Sons. A series of earlier talks by Gen. Breckinridge. formerly the president general of the organization: Gen. Thomas M. Vincent, one of Its most widely known members; Major Fred C. Bryan. an Ohioan who revieKed tersely and entertain ingly the 100 years' history of his state; Mr. William A. DeCaindry, who urged the Sons of the Revolution to unite with the Daughters in constructing the proposed Continental Memorial Hall in this city: and Mr. Loren B. Johnson. who protested vig orously against the desecration of the American flag by advertisements. on race 0,aeks, in the fighting ring and elsewhere, had aroused the interest and held the at tention of the meeting until the last comer had arrived. Founding of Jamestown. When Judge Goode was introduced he' was warmly greeted. "Major Bryan's interesting review of Ohio's history had merited the attention with which it had been received by the society," he said, In opening. The cele bration of a centennial by any state in such a union of states could not fail to excite the patriotism and pride of ever- citizen in the land. Yet, as a product of Virginia-a state which has contributed no small part to the making of Ohio-he hoped the Sons of the American Revolution might associate with the interest in Ohio's celebration a measure of- patronage for the tercentenary which which was to be celebrated In Jamestown In 107. He took that occasion to invite every one present to attend the Virginian celebra tion, and it was an open secret. he said. that he himself had already accepted an in vitation to attend with a very gracious and beauteous young lady "This tercentenary," he exclaimed. "is of no mere local significance. It marks the first meeting of .t,e white man and the In dian. There the first ax chopped the first log for the first cabin of the first American settlement. There was sown the spirit of American liberty. and from that center ra diated an influence which now reaches to another ocean and beyond that ocean to the far-off isles of the southern seas." Advances of Civilization. Several references to the historY of Vir ginia then followed as an introduction to a specific review of the past fifty years. No man who had seen the advances of civiliza tion in the last half of the century could be blind to the blessings of that advance ment. Inventqrs had contributed more to the welfare of their fellows In that period than Alexander, Caesar or Napoleon. and their names would survive when those of the great conquerors had passed into ob livion. "They have subdued steam; they have harnessed and controlled that .niht- elt. electricity; they have courted coy Nature; they have annihilated time a: pac. w the telegraph and the telephone, and in fu ture years the names of great soldiers will shine but dimly beside the names of Ful ton. Morse and Henry. "But these inv, ntions have all contrib uted to create new problems for the Amer ica.n people to solve in the course of the new century, on whose threshold the na tion now stands. May I be permitted to advert to what seems to me the chief of those problems? I refer to the centraliza tion of power which threatens us every where. The-civil war settled for good and all two great principles-the Indissolubility of the Union and the inability of any state to secede. Thank God for it. But it did not centralize in the hands of the national government the power of the separate states. It did not rewrite or destroy the federal Constitution. Unless the tendency toward the obliteration of the states is checked, unless combinations of capital are checknated In their efforts to control the industries of the nations, the republic must inevitably suffer great loges. Men cannot attempt to raise her, the head fell off. The body, as well as the head, was fearfully mutilated-the former so much so as scarce ly to retain any semblance of hurmanity. "To this horrible mystery there Is not as yet, we believe, the slightest clew." The next day's paper had these additional particulars: "The Tragedy in the Rue Morgue. Many Individuals have been examined in relastion to this most extraordinary and frightful affair. (The word 'affaire' has not yet, in France, that levity of Import which it con veys with us), but nothing whattever has transpired to throw light upon it. We give below all the material tes-timony elici.ted. "Pauline Dubourg, laundress, deposes that she has known both the deceased for three years, having washed for them during that period. The old lady and her daughter seemed on good terms-very affectionate to ward each other. They were excellent pay. Could not speak in regard to their mode or means of living. Believed that Madame L. told fortunes for a living. Was reputed to have money put by. Never met any per aons in the house when she called for the clothes or took them home. Was sure that they had no servant An employ. There ap peared 'to be no furniture in any part of the building except In the fourth story. "Pierre Moreau, topacconist, deposes that he has been in the habit of selling small quantities of tobacco- and snuff to Madarne L'Espans,ye for nearly four years. Was born in the neighborhood and has always resided there. The deceased and her daughter had occupied the house in which the corpses were found for more than six years. It was formerly occupied by a jew eler, who underlet the upper rooms to va rious persons. The house was the property of Madame L. She became dissatisfied with the abuse of the premises by her tenant and moved into them herself, refusing to let any portion. The ozd lady was childish. Witness had seen the datighter some five or six times during the s-ix years. The two lived an exceedingly retired life; were -re puted to have money. Had heard it said among the neighbors that Madame L. told fortunes; did not believe it. Had never seen any person enter the door except the old lady and her daughter, a porter once or' twice and a physician some eight or -ten times. "Many other persons, neighbors, gave evi denete to the same effect. No one was spoken of as frequenting the house. It was not known whether there were any living *connections of Madame L. and her daugh ter. The shutters or the frornt windows were seldom opened. Those in the rear were always closed, with the exception of the large back room, fourth story. The house was a good house, not very old. "Isidore Muset, gendarme, deposes that he was called to thei 1aouse about S o'clock In the morning, and found some twenty or thirty persons at the gateway, endeavoring to gain, admittance. Forced it open, at length. with a bayonet-not with a crow bar, Had but little diffRculty in getting .It open, en account of fIts being a double or Iolding m*.and boited oeit at bottsa nor op, he srieks wet. contined until be free in a country where combinations of a few can control tWe supplies of the many.

Those near him caught his hands:and shook them warmly. Every one else aplauded. Finally when a rising vote Af thanks was proposed the whole assemblage aDlOie; crowded around the speaker and escorted hia. to the dining hall below, and the forrn4l.e:VPrcises of the evening were at an end. CAPT. WILLIAMS TESTIFIES. Former Manager of Chicago Masonic Temple on Tax Scandal. A dispatch from Chicago yesterday says: Capt. Edward Williams, the former mana ger o.f the Masonic Temple, who returned to the city Tuesday after having been three weeks in hiding, following his conviction in the Masonic Temple tax scandal, took the stand this morning as a witness for the state in the trial of President James H. Gormley for conspiracy. He testified that he had entered into ar arrangement with Luke Wheeler and a man tamdc Storm, supposing them to represent the county treasurer's office, to secure a receipt in full for the temple taxes, amounting to $26,770.17, for 20,(X0), and that he had done so with the full knowledge and consent of President Gormley and of Director Rush of the. Masonic Fraternity Temple Asscciation, then its secretary and trepaurer. Wi'llams testified that he had nothing to do with the drawing of the money for the $20.,U check. It was -given to him a day or two aft,r the conversation detailed above, and he paid it over to Luke Wheeler and received the tax receipt In exc'hange. The payment, he said, was made in his of fice in the Masonic Temple. He was not satsfied, he testified, with Wheeler's explanation of his ability to se cure the receipt for that amount, and Wheeler agreed to bring one of the princi pal officers of the ^unty breasurer's office over. He appeared later with a man whom he introdUced as Mr. Storm, who said he was authorized to make the arrangement, and that it was (lone by .rearranging the personal property taxes. Peter Storm, who is presumed to be the man in qiuestion, was an employe of the cpunty tresur(r's office at that time, but has since committed suicide. Williams de clared that neither he nor Wheeler got any of the $241.0XP. "Who was to get it?" he was askei. "Mr. Raymond. the co.unty treasurer, I understand," the winess an4wered. He s:idi Gormiy gave him notes for $5.000 when he (Villiams) was arrested. GAITHERSBURG NEWS. Jefferson Club and Library in Dispute -Personal Notes. Special Corresnondence of The Evening Star. GAITHERS1BURG, Md., Nov. 11., 1902. A vigorous contention had arisen over the possession of the Jefferson Club and Li brary of Gaithersburg, and recourse to the courts is possible. The club was declared dissolved by the president, Rev. Dr. James L. Lodge, baFed upon actin alleged o have been taken at the last regular meeting two weeks ago. Dr. Lodge, Mr. S. A. Len man and Mr. Win. Hf. Wessells, who were at that time appointed a -special com mittee to appraise and apportion the prop Srty among the donors, have been attend ing to that duty and were to have met at the club rooms last nigbt at Knights of Pythias Hall. It was the evening on which another regular meeting of the club would have occurrcd. however, and the opponents of the action purported to have been taken in d(ciding to dissolve at ithe previous ses sion took advantage of this fact, and man aged to have the committee denied the right to meet in the hall, but instead met themselves in the name of tim club. There was a large attendance of those who have been active ruembe-s and many spectators, and in the absence of President Lodge, Dr. E. H. Etchison was made presi dent pro tem., while the secretary, Miss R. Crown, and the financial secretary, Mr. Carson Ward -of the club, were pressed into service. Among those present who made addresses and took issue with the advocates of dissolution in- their action at the former meeting were Dr. H. L. Ds.vis, Prof. E. L. Amiss, Mr. Victor P. Hinkley, Mr. Carson War dand Mr. James E. Garrett. A resolu tion was passed declaring the club active, and appointing Dr. Davis, Miss Crown and the gate was forced-and then suddenly ceased. They seemed to be screams o.f tome person (or persons) In great agony-were loud and drawn ou.t, not short- and quick, Witness led the way upstairs. Upon reaeh ing the first landing, heard two voices i-n loud and angry contention-the one a gruff voice, t.he other much shr'iller-a very strange voice, Could distinguish s.ome words of the former, which was that of a French man, Was positive that it was not a wo man's voice. Could distinguish the words 'sacre' aind 'diable.' The shrill voice was t-hat of a foreigner, Could, not be sure whether it was the voice of a man or of a woman. Could not make out what was said, but belileved the language to be Span ish. The state of the room and of the bodies was described by the. witness as we describ. ed them yesterday, "Henry Duval, a neighbor, and by trade a silversmith, deposes that he was one of the party who first entered the house. Cor roborates t-he testimony of Muset in general. As soon as they forced so entrance they reclosed the door, to keep. out. the crowd, which collected very fast,..notwithstanding the lateness of the hour. The shrill voice, the wit,ness thinks, was -that of an Italian, Was.cerlain it w,aa not Fr,nch, . Could not be sure that It was a man'* voice. It might have been a woman's, Was not acquainted with the Italian language; Could not dis tinguish the words, but wag convinced by the -in'tonation that the s#eaker was an Italian.

Everything was perfectly silent-no groans or noises of any kind. Upon forcing the door no person was seen. The windows, both of the back and front room, were down and firmly fas tened from within. A door between the two rooms was closed, but not locked. The door leading from the front room into the passage .was locked, with the key on the inside. A sinall room in the front of the house on the fourth story, at the head of the ~seage, was open, the door being ajar. This room was crowded 'wfth old beds, boxes, and sq forth.

"Several witnesses, recalled, here testi fied that the chImneys of all the rooms on the fourth story were too narrow to admit the passage of a human being. By 'sweeps' were meant cylindrical sweeping brush~es, such as are employed by those who olean chimneys. These brushes weere passed up and down every flue in the house. There is no back passage by which any one could have descended while the party proceed..! upstairs. The body of Mile. L'Espanaye was so firmly wedged in the chimney that it could not be got down until fouir or five of the party un-ited their strength. "Paul Dumas, physician, deposes that he was called to view the bodIes about day break. They were both then lying on the sacking of the bedstead, in t.he chamber where Mile. L. was found. The corpse of the young lady was much bruised and ex coriated. The fact that it had been thrust up the chimney would sufficiently account for these appearances. The throat was greatly chafed. There were several deep scratches just below the chin, together with a series of livid spots which were evidently the impression of fingers. The face was fearfully discolored, and the eye-balls pro truded. The tongue had been pa.rtially bit ten through. A large bruise was discover ed upon the pit of the stomach, produced, apparently, by the pressure of a knee. In the opinion of M. Duias, Mile. L'Espanaye had been throttled to death by some person or persons unknown. The corpse of :he m'ot.her was horribly mutilated. All the bones of the right leg and arm were more or less shattered. The left tibia much splintered, as well as all the ribs of the left side, Whole body dreadfully bruised and discolored. It was not possible to say hcw the injuries had been inflicted. A heavy club of wood or a broad bar of iron -a chair, any large, heavy and obtuse weapon would 'have produced such results if wielded by the hands of a very powerful man. No woman could have inflicted the blows wit|h any weapon. The head of the deceased, when seen by witness, was en tirely separated- from the body, and was also greatly; shattere4. The throat had evi den'tly been cut with some. very sharp in strument-probably with a rasor. "AlexLndre Etienh~e ,suargeon, was called with M. Dma. to view the bodies.

Dupin seemed singularly interested in th progress of this affair-at least, so I judgg from his manner, for he made no coln.' ments. -It was only after the announce ment that Le Bon had been imprisoned thaI he asked me my opinion respecting tE murders. I could merely agree with all Paris Z considering them an Insoluble mystery. saw no means by which it would bepsi. ble to trace the murderer. "We must not judge of the means," sal Dupin, "by this shell of an examination, 'The Parisian police, so much extolled foy acumen, are cunning, but no more. There is no method in their proceedings, beyon~ the method of the moment. They make vast parade of measures; but not infre.' quently these are so ill-adapted to the ob-.

To look at a star by glances-o view it In a sidelong way by turning toward it the exterior portions of the retina (more susceptible -of feeble hm pressions of light than the interior), is to behold the star distinctly-is to have the best appreciation of its luster-a .luster which grows dim just in proportion as we turn our vision fully upon it. A, greater number of -rays actually fali upon the e ia the latter case, but in the former thar is the more refined capacity for comprehen. Aon.
