Black Rod summoned the lower house
to the house of lords to hear the King's
speech, which was, a lengthy recapitula
tion of public -events since January, in
cluding the action taken in connection
with Venezuela, in regard to which it
says; • ,
—■I regret that the constant complaints
which my government found it necessary
to address to the government of Vene
zuela in regard to unjustificable and ar
bitrary acts against British subjects and
property during the last two years have
beeen persistently disregarded and that
it has become necessary for my govern
ment, acting in. concert with that of His
Imperial Ma jestjv'the .German 'Emperor,
which has, also serious \cause for com
plaint against Venezuela to insist upon
measures of redress." .■ •
The speech refers to the conclusion of
the. Somh" African war and adds: :.,
"There seems to be every reason to
hope that material prosperity greater
than any the Transvaal and Orange
River colonies have yet experienced may
visit these regions and that all sections
of the population may live together in
friendship for each other and loyalty to
the Crown."
Paragraphs deal with the postponed
coronation, the Colonial conference, and
Colonial Secretary Chamberlain's tour,
which together are expected to be of the
"utmost value both in respect to their

A Quarrel Between Her and <a Mys
terious Male Caller.
SIOUX FALLS, S. D., December IS.—
Members of the divorce colony here are
discussing the 'latest developments, in. the
case of Mrs. Roland T B. Molineux. It is
alleged that a quarrel occurred between
Mrs. Molineux and a mysterious person
age, whqse identity has not yet been re
vealed. .
It is rumors that several persons who
live in the hUel at which Mrs. Molineux
is a guest wi-e startled Saturday night
by a man entering Mrs. Molineux's
rooms .She was apparently greatly
angered by the words of her caller. Oc
cupants of rooms in the vicinity could not
help but hear the . angry voices of ' Mrs.
Moliheux and her unknown visitor. ' - ■
There is foundation for the belief that it
was not-a Sioux Falls acquaintance who
took the liberty of quarrelling with her.
The alleged caller, it is hinted, may have
been a New York friend of Roland B.
Molineux, who quietly came to effect a
reconciliation .between, the woman . and
her husband and to induce her to aban
don her proposed divorce suit and return
to New York. Others intimate that the
caller may^ have. been, a; New ; York.-;ac
quaintance ""who decided to visit Mrs. Mo
lineux. the quarrel resulting from some
cause known only to themselves.
Mrs. Molineux, now that tho seige of
her apartments has been raised, takes a
long walk almost daily, and makes occa
sional trips to nearby stores, but Is in
variably unaccompanied. No male com
panion has been seen with her, and, so far
as can be ascertained, no one, either as
an emissary of her husband or otherwise,
has recently arrived from' New York. .
