to tbe qualification and fitness if all
persona whose names are presented
to the Senate for confirmation, or
rejection, and it ia the duty of tbe
Executive to comply wi'h all de
mands for tbe sitme. He ashed im
mediate consideration of tbe resolu
tion. Mr. Cock rel 1 objected, and tbe
matter went over as a subject for
Mr., Edmunds, Mr. Iaalls and
Mr. Logan opposed tbe bill, and Mr.
Morgan spoke in its favor. The j
Electoral Count bill then came np
and Mr. Evarts took tbe fljor. Ao
submitted an aiueudm ut tbat it
should be the duty of tbe Executive
of each State, as soon as prHCticabla, I
after tbe final astiertiiumeut ot the
appointment of the election, and such
State to comniuuicate, under the

State of tho United States, a cer- j
tincate sDowiog tne resu i or encn

Dame of the electors and other par
ticulars, and to deliver to tbe electors
of such State a similar certificate in
triplicate, such c-riififntes to ba
transmitted by tbe doctors with the
result of thir own actions.
Mr,. Edmunds opposed tbe motion
to re-commit but it struck hi.u tint
Mr. Evarts migrated an amendment
which embodied an extremely valua
ble idea. It could be discussed
ia the Senate, however, as well as in
convention. After further deb tt a
motion to recommit wms brought to a
vote and resulted yeas, 30; nays,
22; the nffi m itiye vote bnti iibout
equally divided betweeu tbe it 'pub
licans and Democrats. All tb pro
posed amendments went with tbe
bill. Tbe Dakota bill was then
placed before tbe Senate, and Mr.
Logan obtained tbe lloor but gave
way for an Executive ne-sion, alter
which tue Senate adjourned.

looked at hi watch.
"Five o'clock. Old habits are things of

"Well, I'm olT, at any rata, for an hour's
strolL" And with a good-humored smile
and a parting nhake of the bands tho two
men parted. As Bourchier sauntered on
toward tho park his thoughts went back to
a ci rt tin November afternoon when he and
Rosalie had rid lea homo together after a
quick run with tha Pytculey, and love had
Y)t th3 better of prudence and ho had pro
posed and bocn refused. Pretty Rosalie,
thru ;h sl:o td only the experience of a sin
gle lesfon. bod enough of worldly wisdom to
know that though Vincent Bourchier was
handsome, clever enough to be a pleasant
companion, of t;ooj birth, s brave soldier
(he had already distinguished himself at the
age of five and twenty), ho was uo mate for
her. She was a penniless but ambitious
girl, dep 'ndent upon the whims of her aunt,
Lorly Silwrthorno, a ntorn matron, who had
preached her protty niece many a sermon
on the folly and wickedness of girls who
niarriod poor men.
"I don't think you are the sort of woman
who would be happy with two new gowns a
year," she was r. tho habit of saying.
"Think ot living in a six-room bouse in tha
suburbs, with a maid-nf-all-work to wait on
you! Xo, Ito-ulie, you mut marry a rich
man, or I w,i,Ii my haivli of you."
Mis BryiU n h id not sutilcient strengih
of character to defy her aunt and marry
Vincent liouivbicr, whom, in her heart of
hearts, a'r.o Uin-w bho l.ived. A couple of
luontlis or to later, Joaah Oruiskirk pro
posed to her and was accepted.
"I wonder if sho would remember ma If
we m. t a;nin," thought Bourchier, as be
turned into the park.
The affernoou being unusually fine, the
drive was thronged with carriages. Bour
cl icr paused several times and leaned on the
rails to mau'h the moving panorama of
beauty uud Tachion. Ha was about to turn

as a Watteau shoph 'rdess, Just as the last
chords of tho waits were dying away ho
caught sight of her emerging from a flis
taat conservatory on Rockininstor's arm.
Bonn birr went straight up to the pair.
"Tho last was our dance, I think, Mi's,
Ormnkirk," he said in a volco that struggled
to b- calm, but only succeeded iu being ro
pr.mchfuL There was a flush on Rosalia's cheek, and
a subdued sparkle in har eyes as shj au
swered: "I am ao sorry, M-ij. Bourchier. And
now," she added quickly, "I a:n going to ask
you to give me your arm to my carriage. I
am tired, and want to go home. "
Lord Rockminstir frowned, and mur
mured a few words into her ear which Bour
chier could not catch ; but idrj. Ornukirk's
silvery tores were so clear thut he could not
avoid hearing her reply:
Then sho dropped Lord P.ockminster's arm
and took Bourchier' s with a siigiit air of
"You are leaving early, Mrs. Ormskirk,"
he nid coldly.
"Yes, 1 tun tiro l," she ropHed briefly.
"Let us mako our way dovn-s:uirg at oaco."
But when Airs. Ormskirk's carriasro drova
up a slight cont.-etamps occurred. The foot
man proved to be in a t.tuto ot hopclenj in
toxication. Bourchier ac enco informed
Rosalie of tho state of affairs, adding that it,
would bo better to uupouse with his survicei
"It Is really too provoking," she said.
"Maj. Bu'.irchier, I must ask you to drivo
home with me. I a:u iu a most laughable
predicauicnL Co you under Jtand bow to
work a lift;"
Bourchier started, nnd then hesitated a
moment "Yes, I think so."
"That is fortunate," she said in a relieve I
tone. "At Megutht rium mansions the lift
man is often not to be found so lata as this,
and I generally depend on my owu survai .t.
I am too nervous to work Jiu tiling myself.'1
Bourchier was naturally overjoyed to do
her this trilling service, a:id he felt thntt'j.i
tete-a-tete drive to l!a jatheriuai mansiom
would almost indemnify h:m for the loss of
that covoted waltz. He seated himself with
alacrity in the widow's coxy brougham, and
they were driven off rapidly tjo rapidly,
bs thought to their destii ition.
As Mrs. Ormskirk had nurnrsed, the lift
man was nowhere to be fou'id; the night
porter, who could not leave bis post, being
the only creature about at tbat lata hour.
"I must asl you t.- escort me to the sev
