GLADSTONE AT HIS BEST. He Arraigns the Government in .Most; Vigorous Phrases. Balfour Makes Reply, and Demands That the Programme or tha liberal Coalition Be Outlined He Intimates That the Conservatives Should Hold on Until This Is Furnished A De nunciation of tha Motley Character Of the Majority Redmond Takes Part In the Discussion Irish Dynamiters and Evictions of Tenants a Feature -A Final Vote Expected Thursday. London, Aug. 9. The House of Com mons to crowded to its loll capacity be fore the business of the day -was com menced, as it was expected Mr. Gladstone ! would resume the debate on the address in reply to the Queen's speech. His appear, ance in the House was the signal for ring ing cheers from his adherents on the floor and in the gallery. The first matter taken up was the cause of Ejan, the Invincible, who was sentenced for 'imprisonment under the crimes act. Home Secretary Matthews said he conld not hold out hopes of Egan's speedy re lease. J. W. Lowther, Parliamentary Secretary of the Foreign Office, announced that the British East Africa Company had instructed its officers to leave Uganda by December 31. He added that Captain Lugard, in command of the company's forcesin Uganda, had consented to a division of territory, it be ing prorided that the armed French Catho lics should stay in a specified locality, though Uganda itself should be free to all re ligions. "Mr. Gladstone Begins Ills Speech. After Mr. Lowther had finished Mr. Gladstone arose and was greeted with loud and prolonged f heering by the members of the opposition. Mr. Gladstone opened his speech by referring to the procedure of the Government in departing from precedents by not resigning when the verdict of the country was against them. The House had met, Mr. Gladstone said, but they did not know for what. Cheers.") The Queen's speech told them nothing. Is it a fact, he asked, that the judgment of the nation was without appeal? Is the House of Commons to fight the battle of the last six years over again? Sever had there been a great issue sub mitted to the country that had been so fully discusssd as the issue decided at the last general election. The Government was perfectly aware of that. They knew well that a majority of the House had come prepared to give effect to the verdict of their constituents. Cheers. They could not do otherwise. Turning to the matter of home rule, amid wild cheering by British members, Mr. Gladstone quoted Mr. Goschen's remark that home rule must be carried by an Irish majority, if it were carried at all. In point of fact the majority in the House is no more Irish than Scotch or "Welsh. A Ii'oir Aimed nt tha Constitution. Nobody had any title to distinguish votes for the purpose of invalidating the reso lution of the House or of the country. Such an argument struck at the root of the Constitution of the United Kingdom. It is customary to give effect to the wishes of the people of Scotland. The ob servations about an Irish majority are in deference to a bad tradition. Those making them would not venture to make similar ones about any other part of the United Kingdom. The fact that the majority is Irish is a recommendation rather than other wise. Cheers from the Irish members. As to the coming Government, it would be time to criticise its words and deeds when it came into office, not while it re mained a nebulus hypothesis. The Con servatives said that in the Liberal speeches home rule was not always prominent The verdict of the country has shown that the people meant it to be prominent, and, there fore, to put an end to the present Govern ment. The supporters of the Government made much of the peace prevailing in Ireland, claiming that it is due to coercion. The tendency toward peace began in 1885 with the better prospect of home rule. True, after the present Government came into power, there was a bad stafe of affairs in 188G. partly arising lrom agricultural de pression. The Government's Acts Too Tardy. Mr. Gladstone added that injustice to the Government he must say they are entitled to credit for what they did towprd relieving the distress by the land act of 1887, but that came too late. It was not associated with the administration of laws in harmony with the sympathies of the people. As be had been asked questions respecting the con tinuance of coercion, he would reply at once that the coercion bill onght not to be retained on the statute book longer than required bv parliamentary usage, Cries of "Hear, hear." Mr. Gladstone then proceeded to refer to the Government's legislation. He credited them with the conversion of .the national debt, but complained that they had inflicted upon Ireland a gross wrong in making her pretended reparation by a local government bill too limited to satisfy Irish wants or to offer any solution pt the Irish troubles. Passing from these matters, Mr.Gladstone acknowledged that the debate could not be altogether retrospective. The Honse must have some lightttipon the future. He wonld not anticipate who would govern when the present administration was displaced. It was not possible for a Liberal Government to say what measures they would submit to Parliament six months hence. fre'and's Claim inih Forefront. In regard to the suggested holding of a session in Nqveniber.he conld only say that any Government taking that course would show an inadequate sense of the magnitude anil variety of the subjects it had to deal with.

Much could be said on both sub jects, but the claims of Inland had for yearn been in the forefront of the battle, and still held that position. Cheers from the op position, The principles of his home rule bill were pretty well known. By Its provlslo p there wonld be a full and effectual mainten ance of Imperial supremacy, while Ireland wonld be given the conduct of her own affairs. Irish representation In the House of Commons is also contemplated under certain conditions. As to the form in which these principles would be embodied, it is the duty of the Liberals to seleot the best form, but hot until they had been placed in power, The bill for seven years had had his primary and absorbing interest, and it would so continue to the end. Cheers. The House would address itself seriously to a bill giving Ireland a government. It would pass the House of Commons and then go (o the House of Lords. .He would not argue upon the probability of the House of Lords rejecting the bill. Ths LordV Veto Knt to Iln Tolerated. If the measure passed the House of Com mons, springing out of a continuous con troversy lasting seven years which had been carried on with zeal and ability under such diversity of circumstances, never would the Honse of Lords have before them a question of greater importance to thejemfvroxatlarge; never a greater ques tion to themselves. Opposition cheers, The obligations of a Liberal government would utterly forbid acquiescence in the rejection of those obligations. To promote the settlement of a great subject it would remain unweakened and unchanged, Cheers. At the same time, it would be necessary to deal in 1893 with a sensible portion of British wants, the demand for which had grown accelerated. Crlesof "Hear, hear." He reminded the House that the Liberals had been vainly trying to pass various measures of reform while in opposition. Speaking "Isroadly, these represented the essential character ot Liberal policy, and in conj uncdvojr with, or rather in subjection to, the great question between England and Ireland, had-raceived the distinct approba tion of the country. Cheers. The Amnesty and Eviction Questions. Referring to the amnesty of Irish pris oners, Mr. Gladstone said it is impossible for other than responsible Ministers to give any pledge, either of revision or remission of sentence?. In regard to evicted tenants, he expressed the nope that during the autumn a voluntary arrangement between landlords and tenants would obviate the ne cessity for such legislation as wonld become inevitable if no arrangements were made. In concluding his speecb, Mr. Gladstone recurred to the Conservative argument that the Irish majority was trying to coerce England. He held that "snch was the strength of England in relation to other kingdoms that she conld never be coerced by them. She had a giant's strength, but let her not use it like a giant It would be most unfortunate if any party placed undue reliance in the power and strength of Eng land against other members of tha federa tion, in forgetfulness of the fact that in the long run moral force would predominate over material force. . On that depends what should be the first object ot their desires, as it is their daily official prayer that union of heart and sentiment which consti tutes the truest basis of strength at home and good lame throughout the civilized. woiiu. iijouu cueers.j Halfour Rep'le for the Government. "Mr. Balfonr followed Mr. Gladstone. He maintained that the House had a right to know before entrusting the Government to the Liberals what would be their policy, especially when the party upon which Mr. Gladstone relied was broken injjo so many divisions, each owning a different leader! Referring to the policy of the present Gov ernment, Mr. Balfour said it would "be judged I by historians. Assured as to what the verdict wonld he, he would neither anticipate nor demand. Mr. Balfour protested against Mr. Glad stone describing the influence Ireland had exercised in recent years on British politics as derived from moral considerations. Im moral considerations, he said, is the right pl'rase. Mr. Gladstone's conversion to home rule was not' due o moral forces, but to material party considerations. Referring to the cpercion policy, Mr. Balfour re minded the House that Mr. Gladstone in 1885 proposed to rettin the coercion law with the assent of Sir G. O. Trevelyan, Lord Spencer and other colleagues. In regard to the proposed vote of no con fidence the Government might be in a mi nority, but what was the majority? Had that motley group the confidence of the Honse? Hear, hear. The Government, teeing the existing circumstances, had a right to review the situation. Different Alms of the Majority. The division of the opposition into sec tions with different aims could not be left out of account The existing partnership between Great Britain and Ireland. Could not be dissolved without the assent of both pn terms acceptable to both. Considering the fact that Irish members would be kept at "Westminster and that an English majority might find itself at the mercy of a combination of an English minority with Irish members, it is clear that England has at least as much interest in home rule as Ireland had. They had a rilit to insist that one of the parties to the existing partnership objected to its being dissolved. Unfortunately for all parties, Mr. Glad stone's allies were his masters. The Irish members told the Liberals, "Unless you do this and that we will turn you out" Con servative cheers. How dangerous would such a state of things be to the interests of the empire if the Irish dominance contin ued! Before the Government re.sien they have the right to ask what are the condi tions under which the alliance between the Liberals and the Irish would be maintained, and what demands had been made upon the Liberals when they came into power. Hear, hear.. Two Very Embarrassing Questions. " If disturbances arose in Ireland, such as marked Mr. Morley's last period in office there, is disorder to have a free hand? Is it'part of the new compact that Daly and other convicted dynamiters be let loose upon the world? Conservative cheers. 'Xhe Irish members said evicted tenants' must be restored to their holdings, and that. some z,uuu oiucrs wno nau purchased them should be punished for their indnstry. Hear, hear. The Conservatives might be beaten by that party, but as yet they had not been so beaten- Cheers and counter-cheers. They know that the future is with them. In turning the Government out had the Liberals the slichtest prosnect that home rule first repeal of the crimes act next,' auu, imruiy, tne destruction 01 tne Mouse of Lords laughter "would allow the Gov ernment time for passing other important measures whieh ths country, heartflv de sires and which they could not touch owing to the Irish allies? " The Threat or a Parnetllte. Mr. Harrington said he had listened to some of Mr. Gladstone's remarks with anx iety. He felt bound to warn the Liberals that some questions "required Immediate attention. He regretted Mr. Gladstone's scant dismissal ot the case of evicted tenants. They had borne the brunt of the battle and had' made the greatest sacrifices for their class. He did not think their ease presented an insuperable difficulty. Again, if the amnesty question is neglected, It would cause a fresh agitation and fresh trouble. If the Liberal party is wise it will give specific pledges to satisfy Ireland pn these matters. , Lieutenant Colonel Edward JamM r A H aW JLJAn T LwLW mJLmLmf-mfJLmmmWJ-Lmf MMm rP W H m1-W HB CTTSBURG WEDNESDAY. ". AW0BT Baunderson (Conservative) made a banter- lug speech in which he said he wondered what Mr, Bedmond would think ot Mr. Gladstone's threat tp proceed with the New castle programme if the House of Lords re jected his noma rule measure, Mr. Redmond predicted that the Irish, Parliament would be as free from" interfer ence on the part of Rome as from interfer ence op the part of the British Parliament. The Tory collapse, he saidj must indeed be Complete when they put up Colonel Baun derson to raise ths bogey of plvii war in Ulster, He reminded the House that Dub lin wss represented in Parliament by men who had been opposed by Archbishop Walsh, and that 7,000 votes had been given to Parnellits candidates. Redmond Stll In a Captions Mood, He repeated his regrets, at Mr.Qladstone's attitude toward the evicted tenants and the Irish political prisoners. He declared that If nothing were dona for them it would be the palnlul duty of Parnelliter members to withdraw tbeif support from Mr. Glad stone, Interest in to-night's debate was height ened by a curiosity as to how Mr, Glad stone would respond to the demands formulated yesterday by Messrs. MoCarthy aqq iteamond lor assurances op the matters of an early suspension of the coercion act, the reljef of evicted. tenants In Ireland and the release of imprisoned Irish dynamiters. New Gladstonian members, unversed in hidden ways of parliamentary leaders, talked in the lobby as if Justin McCarthy had purposely shown himself hostile to Mr. Gladstone, and was trying to embarrass him at the very outset of Parliament Older mem bers, however, who know something of the inner workings, decline to credit Mr. Mc Carthy with being capable of placing Mr. Gladstone in a fix pr scheming to entrap him, As. Mr,' Gladstone proceeded with his speech, jfbecatne evident that McCarthy had arranged with Liberal leaders to pro pound a series ot demands of grea.t portent, but requiring no dexterity pn the part of the greatest parliamentary tactician living to dispose of. Gladstone a Skillful Foiitjoiap. The speech throughout was marked more by skillful handling of critical positions than by plainness of exposition or elo quence. During the honr and a quarter which he consumed in his speech Mr. Glad stone showed all his wonted energy of style and harmonious resonance of voice. No one could have imagined that a medical consultation on the speaker's condition had occurred only an hour before he made his appearance in the Honse and that- he had been earnestly entreated to retrain from abandoning himself to his old impulses and to hoard his strength by shortening his ora tion. Not until alter the speech had been delivered-when Mr. Gladstone immediately left the House, did even his colleagues learn that he was still feeling the effects of his recent illness. Before he bggun to speak, Mr. Gladstone took a drjnk of his customary stimulant, sherry flip, and during, the delivery of his speech he had occasional recourse to the same drink. As soon as he had concluded he left for Stuart Rendel's cquutry seat. Hatchlands, where he will remain until Thursday, Both hides of the House ad mitted the dexterity of his speech and ad mired the unfaltering power with which he poured out neatly turned sentences; sug gesting much, yet contenting himself with little. The McCarthyltes Are Patlsflt d. The McCarthyltes concurred in the opin ion that Gladstone's declarations, though undecided, were satisfactory. They could hardly express any other opinion, as Mr. Balfqur's reference to the party as. "being squared" had attained the credence of 'the whole House. The Paraellites were not Suite so satisfied. They were especially iscoutented wlthMr. Gladstone for refrain ing from giving a pledge to release the dynamiters. . - Part qf their discontent 'arises from the neglect of the Liberal leaders to take them into their confidence. The Liberal whips Ignore them and have not even invited their vote on the coming division. In spite of this, the Associated Press representative was assured that the'Parnellites would vote with Gladstone Tbursday,and that tbeMcCarthr ite reports that they would abstain were'a libel on the spirit of the party. It has been arranged to suspend the mid pight rule on Thursday, so as to enable the House to effect a division. Mr. Gladstone Ignored the request of the labor members addressed to him early in the day to make some reference to an eight-hour Dill. When the House adjourned until Thurs day, Mr. Healy, supported by Mr. Comp ton, protested against the unnecessary delay of a division, accusing the Government of using'delay-f or jobbery in Ireland. Forty appointments, they said, had. been made in Ireland since Saturday. . 6,000 MINERS TO STRIKE. Two Districts Demand Higher Wages and Checkwelr.hinnn Plan Chanced. Altooka. Aug. 9.

MURDERWLL OUT, ?he Mystery Surrounding the Killing of Millionaire Borden Lifting. THBEE DISTINCT STORIES Told by the flirl, Lizzie, the Daughter of tlje. Victim, IMPORTANT EVIDENCE TURNS UP. Bridget Snl'ivun Breaks Potto and Tells a Different Tale. DETECTIVES COKDCCT AN EXAMINATION SPPCIAL TELIQBJLV TO THS DISrJlTCa, Fall Kivee, Aug, 9, The mystery sur Toupdlng the killing of Hn Borden and his wife, it is believed, is practically dispelled. Within the next 24 hours, unless the unex pected prevents, the murderer will be in the hands of the Ian, All of to-day the authorities have worked as, they have not before labored on the case. Attorney General PilUbury and Prof. "Wood, of Harvard, reaohed here at 4 o'clock to-dny. They at once jolped Dis trict Attorney Knowlton at an inquiry which is now being held and which corres ponds to an inquest and at which Lizzie Borden was heard. Bridget Sullivan is at Mrs. Harrington's house in the care of a detective and Lizzie Borden is at her home under police surveillance. ' The police conference yesterday lasted far into the morning. The time of the murder was considered first Marshal Billiard in formed' the District Attorney that the mur der had occurred between 10 minutes of 11 o'clock and 18 minutes after 11 o'clock on Thursday morning. It was shown that Mr, Borden reached home after his morning trip down town between 10:45 and 10:50 o'clock. Fixing!!"1 Time of the Murder. This was proved both by the testimony of (men who met him on his Way to the house and bv the first admissions of the Borden household after the murder was discovered. At 11:15 the police were notified, and be fore 11:20 o'clock people were crowding around the Bordep house. Dr. Bowen, who j was called in by Bridget Sullivan, said he was sure he could not have been there later than 11:20 o'clock. This satisfied the District Attorney that Lizzie Borden conld not have been out of the house even 18 minutes, if at all. But there Is a stronger reason, say the police, why Lizzie Borden was not ont of the bouse at all, and this reason is strengthened by a man fonnd'to-day. John Dinnie, a laborer, was at work in the yard adjoining the Borden property, and was within 30 feet of McGowan, the mason. He said this morning he saw no one either enter or leave the house. After fixing the time of the murder at the confer ence the District 'Attorney took up the story of Lizzie Borden, who is the last per son known to hare seen her father alive. Lizzie Borden told three stories. Discrepancies in Lizzie's Stories. The first discrepancy discovered in her story by the District Attorney pertains to her whereabouts at the time of. the murder. She first said she was in the vault in the barn. This she changed later by saying that she was in the loft searching for lead. The police at once disproved this. Tbey sent a detective to the loft in the barn. This man climbed the ladder leading to the loft, and found the floor of the loft covered with a layer of dust about one-quarter of an inch thick. As he stepped in it he noticed that his footprint was marKed plainly. He closely examined the floor for other footprints. There were none. No one, not even Miss Borden, had been in the lott recently. The District Attorney next listened to the Marshal's' narration of the work he had done in tracing down every clew aside from the above and to bis opinion that all other clews were worthless. Medical Examiner Dolar) then explained how Mrs. Borden must have been dead at least one hour be fore the murder of Mr. Borden. Dr. Dolan said that in his opinion Mrs, Borden was dead as early as 9 o'clock in the morning. This settles at least the fact that Miss Borden, who says' she was not away from the hopse the entire morning prior to the murder, must have been in the house with her stepmother and the assassin when the first murder took place. And with Bridget Sullivan up stairs and with Lizzie Borden wandering abont the house, how does it happen that they did not meet the assassin or hear the necessary noise of the murder? Important Evidence Tnrns Cp. The final decision of the conference reached at 2 o'clock this morning was to do nothing until later this morning. It was the firm opinion of all that before any such action as holding an inquest should be taken, Bridget Sullivan should be sub jected to a rigid examination. But before, the inquiry was oonvened this morning other and far more important evidence was placed in the hands ot -the District At torney. On Friday there was found in the cellar of the Borden honse a bundle of rags. These rags were concealed nnder a bucket turned upside down. They were smeared with blood as though an ax had been wiped on them. Dr. Dolan took these rags and sent them to Prof. Wood of Boston. He also sent a strip-of carpet dyed with the blood of Mrs. Borden. Prof, wood to-day said that the blood on the rags, as well as that on the carpet, was human blood beyond all doubt. With this evidence before tbem, the District Attorney and Chief Police Hllllard sent Sergeant Dougherty to the-Borden house this mernlnf at-10 o'cleok.wJth.a summons I for Bridget Sullivan, - geifeant Dougherty I i MISS LIZZIE BOSDEN.'

' Speaking of the identity qf the murderer, she said that she was too worn and worried to talk of that. Brlaget Sallfvan Breaks Down. Then she exclaimed, suddenly, "The mur derer should clear me.V After that Bhe would Bay nothipg, At police headquar ters she was taken at once, before Judge Blaisdell, the District Attorney and Chief of Police Hilliard. Question after question was fired at her. All the suspicions enter tained against Lizzie Borden were repeated to her. She was made to tell and retell her story. The girl stood at as long as she could. Then she broke down. She told her ex aminers, it is sajd, that she did not believe Lizzie Borden left the house at all. She was aiked why she thought Miss Borden had not gone out She answered with sobs. . The District Attorney waited in vain for her to regalO-her composure, and at 12 o'clock the inquiry was stopped. When District Attorney Knowlton re sumed his place' at 1 o'clock it was decided to summon Lizzie Borden before Judge Blaisdell at once. Chief of Police Hilliard drove direct to the Borden house. Lizzie said with perfect composure that she was ready to go. As Chief Hilliard closed the carriage door Miss Borden' said coldly: "How those people stare." She said nothing more on the way to the court room. New Details XbatiA r Kept Secret. District Attorney .Knowlton began his examination of Lizzie Borden by telling her to repeat- her' story of her.whereabouts at the time of the murder, and of her finding her father's body. Miss Borden told her story faithfully'just as she talked It over to Mrs. Hanscom and Lawyer Jennings. It could not be learned positively to-night what tew details or points had been given by Miss Borden. J.Y. Morse, .the unole of the Borden girls, when shown a statement by George B. Pish, of Hartford, a brother-in-law of the murdered Mrs. Borden, that he, Pish, believes that Miss Lizzie Borden and Mr. Morse concocted the murder of the old couple, and hired some one to do it, said that his counsel had advised him to have nothine to sav for nnb- 'Hcatlon. He added, however: "You know as well as I do what grounds there are for such an absurd charge as that. It is en tirely unreasonable. That is all I will say." CHOLERA NEAR METZ.

LAWED TO HIS DEATH. A Judge, Himself a Litigant, Quails Before Cross-Examination. HE TAKES A POWERFUL POISON. At the First He Meditated the Murder of Big Tentorial Critic FiYE ST. LOUIS SUICIDES IN ONE DAI St. Louis, Aug. 9. A most startling cli max to the action for libel recently begun by Judge James C NormiJe,of the St. Louis Criminal Court, against the Pest-Dispatch, came this forenoon a little before 11 o'clock in the suicide by poison of the plaintiff, Judge Normile, at his rHdence. Criticism of the administration of Judge Noimile's court was precipitated recently by a sudden division in the grand jury act ing Under him, eight of its members alleg ing that four had combined to prevent the indictment of persons with a"puIL" The matter was brought before 'Judge -NoirnUa' through communications Jrom the contend ing factions, and the Judze's conduoc-itt the matter led to charges and criticism on tha part of the Post-Dhpatch, which culminated in the Judge bringing suits for sums aggre- Sa'tlng 5400,000 against the paper attacking im, and also instituting criminal libel ac tions against three of the paper's responsible editors, Florence D. White, chief, and Samuel Williams and George S. Johns, as sistants. After this action, Judge Normile left the city for a Bhon rest. Beturning a day or two since, he appeared yesterday before a master appointed to take depositions in his libel Suit, He was on the stand most of the day and' was much disturbed by the close, sharp questioning and the tilts be tween the contending counsel. Investiga tion showed that the recent occurrence and criticisms had so borne upon the man's mind that he could endure it no longer. A note unsigned, but in the Judge's chi rography, contained the statement that he bad this morning determined not to kill Florence D. White, whose paper had criti cized, as he felt unjustly, the administra tion of his court. Preferring suicide to murder, andseeipeno other course, he had determined on the former, by taking poison, Judge Normile bad been down town during the morning but returned home shortly after 10. Before 11 he was found in rigor mortis, showing that whatever the poison was it was very powerful. Jndge Normile was born in Ireland in 1844. He came to this country at an early age, and with his parents passed the years previous to his majority in Kan sas. He studied law in Georgetown University, and later in the -Law Depart ment of 'the Columbian University at Washington.

UNCLE SAM'S GOLD COIN fjarted From the Train Through New York's Crowded Streets. MORE MONET IN ONE LUllE SUM "Than Ever Traveled Before In the History of tlie World, A 0YEL SIGHT IN THE HETEOPOLIS rSFICIAt, TXLXGBAU TO THS DISFATCIM Nirw Yobk, Aug; 9. Precisely at 10:46 o'clock this morning the specialknail train, -which left San Francisco at 6:30 o'clock last Thursday evening carrying $20,000,000 in United States gold coin, came to a standstill in tlje annex of the Grand Central station. There was nothing in the appearance of the train to attract attention. Itwasmadeup of a special passenger coach, two railway mail cars, a baggage car and an express car. The side doors of the express and mail cars had been thrown open, and clustered at each was a group of men with big colt re volvers stuck in their belts or held eare lessly in their hands. They looked mora like tramps with their soot-begrimed faces and old clothes than faithful guardians of Uncle Sam's wealth. A tall man with a long linen duster jumped from the first car of the train and shook hands with another man who had been anxiously pacing up and down in the yard waiting for the train's arrival. Tha first man was Captain James E. White, General Superintendent of the Railway Mall Service, who brought the train through, and the man he greeted was the Second As sistant Postmaster, J. Lowrie Bell, who came on from Washington last Saturday to see to the safe arrival of the train with its precious freight. The Idtr'sest Shipment Since Adam. Never before has so large a single ship ment of gold crossed this continent, nor, in fact, has any such sum ever heen trans ported such a distance in the history of the world. Arrangements had been made to transfer the gold to the Sub-Treasury in the regular United States mall wagons, and 18 of them were waitinc in line at Mad ison avenue and Forty-sixth street, under the charge of transfer clrek J. W. Tiebout. There was not a moment's delay in getting the gold out of the cars. The big mail wagons backed Tight up to the car doors, and a dozen yardmen under the charge of Station Master Henderson were mustered into (service to lift the boxes of gold coin into the waeons. Bach of the stout wooden boxes, which had been bnilt especially to carry this ship ment, contained $40,000 in gold coin and weicrhed ISO pounds. Each was a registered I mail packagetjwhich had been duly nom- uereu ill tun jcguiu uiuchui w.w h""v. at San Francisco. Sunk into the top of each box in two- places was the seal of the United States Assistant Treasurer at San Francisco. Gourds Keep Close Watch of the Coin. In each of the four cars were piled 125 boxes, containing 55,000,000 in alL Each car was in charge of a division superin tendent pf the railway mail service, with teamen to assist him in guarding the mill ions. ' Each of the boxes was 18 inches long with a handle at either end. It took two of the yard men to lift a box and carry it into the mail van. As fast as the vans were loaded two of the guards in the car from which the gold had been taken were de tailed to accompany each down to the sub Treasury. The 57 guards who had taken turns in watching the treasure all the way from San Francisco did not relax a bit of their vigi lance. They kept the big pistols handy as the cars were unloaded, and the guards that went down in the vans had their revolvers in plain sight, too. Revolvers Out on Every Side. "Get on the top of that wagon," said Superintendent Pepper, instructing one of his men. "Keep your hand on your revolver and watch the tail of the wagon." The guards strolled up and down in front of the cars fumbling their revolvers in a way that was very trying to the nerves of the onlookers. One man had a revolver stuck loosely nnder his trousers band, and held another carelessly under his arm. The work of unloading the cars began shortly after 11 o'clock, and the last of the 18 bars rolled away from the station at 12:30 o'clock- Several long boxes filled with cavalry carbines were taken out, along with boxes of ammunition. There were 3,000 rounds of ammunition aboard, 2,000. cart ridges for the rifles and 1,000 for the revol vers. The trips of the vans down to the sub Treasury made a sensation, for the news of the arrival of the gold train had spread. The two guards that accompanied each van sat on either aide of the drive. They still bad their long Colt revolvers. Some carried their weapons in their laps, while others gripped them in their pockets, ready for use in an instant. Glad to Be Kid of the Fabulous Sam. . The four vans arrived at the sub-Treasury building at 12-40 o'clock. They ap proached the building on the Pine street side and thejnrst wagon backed up to the sidewalk to unload. "Well, I am glad it is all over with," said Mr. BelL as the last box came out of the wagon. When the gold left San Fran cisco each box was registered, and Mr. Bell gave a receipt for COO boxes, "said to con tain $20,000,000 in gold," When the money was turned over to Assistant Treasurer Ellis H. Koberts he gave a similar receipt and notified the Secretary of the Treasury that he had received $20,000,000 subject to count. The counting of the gold will not be done for several days. The method Is to count one bag full and then get Its exact weight After that the other bags are weighed, the first one being used as a standard. If there should be the slightest discrepancy In the weight of any bapr the contents of that one would be counted separately.

Good sell's Observatory can claim the distinction of being the first, daring this opposition, to see the two moons of Mars. Profs. Payne and Williams, of Goodsell's, and ProC Crusenbury, of Des Moines, made some some observations last night, and after they had finished their search, ProC Payne said: "I think we are the only ones who are able to see the moons this trip, and this is as fine a sight as I nave seen since 1877. Though not quite so long, Phobos look redder, while Deimoe looks less red. We can hardly tell, it is so far, just how far these moons circle around Man, since the only way of measuring the distances if by foouslng the light," Prof. Payne also said that there is no ddnbt that Mars it In habited, , MILLIONS v-, i..
