Ha Said the tlmo pro? posed in which Judge. Archbald should answer was shorter than usually given. Senator McCumber. of North Dakota proposed to extend the time to July 31. Representative Clayton said this postponement would not be doing Jus? tice to the views of the llousje, or pf the House managers. He Insisted, for j the managers, upt.n an answer July 21. \ Owing to an agreement to vote on tariff bills July 25, 26 and 2". none of these days could bo offered as a com-: promise. Senator Lodge then suggested Mon-j day, July 2$. as the dey of answer. Mr. Clayton also opposed this, as too lon? i a time. "If the uimit In this case wer? purely formal, we could make it now. by saying 'Not guilty.' " Interrupted Attorney Wortli'ngt-iTi, "but the prac-1 tlce has been to answer fully, and that requires time." Roll Call Taken. Under tho rules of the impeaehmnt court, a roll call was necessary on the motion t" fxtend the time to July 2D. Senator Bailey urged that no tlmo| could be saved by requiring a:i answer July 21 If the next three days were to be devoted by the Sonnte to tariff discussion. ' I am not willing/' bo added, "to romp<T the counsel for the accused to maki answer b< fore he toys he can b? ready. I do not believe the saving of three days can warrant us In forcing the answer." Senator Bailey declared he favored a trial of the impeachment case before tht summer adjournment of Congress nml woull urgi such action, but that he favored giving tho attorney for Judge At ;l I aid the time he believed necessary t" answer the charges. \\ Ithflruvm Objection.

COUPLE RESTORED TO ROYAL FAVOR Recent Happenings Point to Re? conciliation of the Marl boroughs. London, July 13.?The - efforts to ef? fect n reconciliation between the Duke end Duchess of Marlborough (Con* suelo Vanderbllt), who have been liv? ing apart for the last six years, are being renewed by English friends of tho duke, and It Is understood that considerable hope Is or.tertalncd th.ut tho couple may be brought together, though the American family of ih. duchess is believed to be us strongly opposed ub ever to a reunion. The fuel that both the duke und the duchess recently havo been received by tho King and Queen lends color to the to ? ilet that there will bt a reconciliation In the near future, while It seems tout special pressure is being brought to bear on the duchess by the royal faintly. Alter the trouble arose be? tween the Marlboroughs King Edward refused to ulluw either oif. them to b<_ received at court, and care always was taken to have neither of them present at functions wnore Their Maj? esties were lu attendance. On one oc? casion, near the end of the late King's reign, the Duke of Muriborough was pri sent at a function or the Order ot the Garter ut Windsor, out he was COtlccably absent from the tea given afterward by the King tor the. mem? bers or the order. The' present King and One en have followed the example ol King Edward, and it has been understood that neither the Duke nor tho Duchora ot Marlborough could expect the royal favor again until there was a recon? ciliation. Not only haa this situation existed, but in all social affair? the duke and duchess have gone their separalo ways. They have had the 6iwiie friends and have been asked to the sutne houses, but not at tho same 1)1 mos. They have lived .apart, the duchess lu Sunderland House and the fluke lu Great Court Street. Tliu duke has continued to enjoy the settlement of 950,000 a year he received at the time of his marriage, but In tho accounts of social happenings their names never have been coupled during the last six years. In these clrcum stancos II is particularly interesting to note that the Duchess of Marlborough v.as present at tin- lust court thl.i sen ?oh, While at the dinner given at Lon? donderry House on Tuesday night by tile Marquis and Marchioness of Lon? donderry, at which the King and Queen were present, "those who had tho honor of meeting Their Majesties In? cluded the Austro-liutinarian atnbassa. dor. the Duchess of Devonshire, the Duke and Duchess of Marlborough, the Duchess of Itoxburghe (May Ooelet), the Marquis of Lansdowne, the Mai quis und Marchioness of Salisbury, the Marquis and Marchioness of Ormonde nnd the Marquis and Marchioness of Stafford." The Marquis and Marchioness of Londonderry enjoy the particular favoi of the King ami Queen, and the mnr Chioness also is a warm friend of the D?ke of Marlborough. No one would have ventured to ask the Duke anrt I lUcheSS of Marlborough .to meet the King and Queen without the pcrmlssh i. of Their Majesties, and when this I-, coupled with the previous reception of the duchess at court It Is believed that the present Intercession of their friends has gone far toward bringing about a reconciliation between the duke and duchess. They did not go to Iajndon d.-rry House together, and they de ; tried separately, but the necessary opportunity "as afforded for a meeting and for the friendly exchange of views Which lias been so much sought for by the duke's friends yesterday afternoon the Duchess of Marlborough was present at the royal garden party at Windsor, and as the duke was not one of the guests, this may be Interpreted to mean that the Ktl S and Queen are bringing further pressure to bear to effect a reconcllla tlon, but London society, which is keen ly Interested In the negotiations, pre? ll rs to believe that the means of BUC cess slrendj lias bc-n achieved and that Ihc dike and duchess have been ro : to red to royal favor, while tne final result?the resumption of the marriage relations?is to be attained with as }.??:< publicity and notoriety as possi? ble. _ FERRY STEAMER SOLD The llexnndrln Will "e Withdrawn From Service on July I i Special to Tlie Times-Dispatch.)
