Cine ago, Sept. 11.?No trace lias vofc been found of .Miss VeraAva, who came hero to work for the reclamation of fallen women, and who mysteriously ui;4j?peared on Wednesday evening. Vera Ava is, it is now asserted, none other than Ann 0'Delia Diss De Bar, the spouk priestess of New York. She was seen 011 the6tre?tand recognized by a .New York newspaper womnn, who tailed upon Police Lieutenant Shea this morning and told him of her discovery. Her description of Ann O'Delia tallies exactly with that of Miss Ava. According to the New York lady, tho notorious spiritualist carries a stock of Trigs and other make-ups, and has of lute been traveling across tho country sHiudinggulliblechurchpeoplc. Rougherty, tho carriage driver who has been nii?(n?fi nhilnnthronist arounu town, was nt police headtjuurtus this morn infe'. and ">s description of her is i'li'iitim! with that furnished by the iaiiv from Sew York, who declared in positive terms that the missing party wa< Diss (le liar and nobody else. "1 have no doubt, judging from the tokmenta furnished mo by the lady I. V..U. Vnrfc that Minn Kva is Hiss de Bar," said Lieut. Shea, "and this opinion id strengthened from information gleaned from other sources." Mrs. llolton, the wife of Rev. Dr. Bolton. oi the Centenary Methodist church, with which Miss Ava became connected a?hort time, said in an interview today: 'More'you can fully onter into my reasons for believing that Miss Eva has met with foul plav, you should underhand what manner of person she was. Miss Ava was a highly educated woman from the English upper middle classes. Hie spoke four languages fluently. She has been an extensive traveller. She hiw a record for distinguished bravery ilurini! the Franco-Prussian war, and fins seen active service with tho ambulances on the lield of battle. She was unmistakably a lady. Iler charities have been already spoken about. On Wednesday evening when I accompanied her in her carriage to the Church of tho Holy Family, she showed mo her wallet just before 'she alighted. It was literal!v crammed with $20 cold pieces. In addition she showed me about $4,000 worth of diamonds. "Swear," she said, raising her right hand in a some what dramatic manner, ' that ii ever 1 disappear you will not rest until you have found me, even if you have to ask All Chicago to join you in tin? search." I did not swear, of course, but I promised her most earnestly that I would. Mie said that she had enemies, and that and that her mother had been murdered. She seemed apprehensive that some inch fate would overtake herself. She never said a word against the Catholic tension from which she was a convert, flie said she had spent inanv happv davf? a? a religieuee, but desired a broader livid for charitable work than the seclusion of the cloisturo afforded her. Mv firm anil honest belief is that sho has ken decoyed by somo unscrupulous villains into a ?afe place and that l.e li i? been foully robbed and murdered. LATKK?A NEW TIIASE.

' last year's meetings. Socialistic to tho last, inuu nationalization ujiu uonuuciutionof capital were not permitted to occupy the attention of too congress, the delegatus applying thoinsolvea to discussions of immediate practical nature. Tho democratic character of tho Congress wna never, more pronounced, though socialistic views wero less obtrusive. The pervading tono of tho? speeches showed 011 absoluto conviction that labor will within the nour futuro dominate Parliament and mako tho country's laws. The old colonists displayed tho same consciousness of mastery of tho position as tho new Unionist, though tamer in vindicating their labor claims and predictions of victory. , The moderates could not prevent tho' ultra Democratic section from passing some erratic resolutions, such as the payment of county councillors and vestrymen, and everybody holding a representative place, tho appointment of workmon on juries and the payment of every jury- . man ten shillings per day proposed, which in general point to aspirations on tho f nrt-of tlie- delegates, or future ' spoils of ofliee. The proceedings culminated to-day in a contest between tho old and thu now Unionists over the election of a parliamentary committee. Tho existing committee lias a largo element of old Unionists and modernto men desiring to reform the constitution. The Congress gave the ultras less power. CONDITION OF BUSINESS.

Tho grent industries are making satisfactory progress. Production has been maintained for three months within very little short of the largeBt Quantity ever reached and tho consumption cannot be far behind. A larger demand is seen for linislied products, especially for bar iron, and tho plato mills aro full of orders, but in rails no chungo is observed.
