But the mere desire to elect, two democratic senators never will suc ceed in electing them. On Joint ballot, the democratic mem bership of the general assembly is six votes short of the requisite 103. It, is absurd to think that the lack ing votes will be found unless there is a concerted effort on the part of all democratic members. A month since, and several members, elected as democrats, caused it to be understood that they would not enter a democratic caucus on the speaker ship, nor abide by the result of such a caucus, if one were held. Hence, the caucus waa called off and a long-continued deadlock ensued, party in power. To such as these, words of warning may prove far more effective than words of kindly advice. And no democratic newspaper pos sessed of even a modicum of common sense need hesitate to predict that if the democratic membership of the general assembly proceeds to ballot for United States senators on the floor of the joint session, unbound by caucus j Sweet Alice.

I paused for a moment to take breath and to gain control of my scattered senses.

"I heard Arthur's voice calling my name, telling me to have no fear, that all would be arranged in a few mo ments, and then his voice ceased. "The voice of my bouevolent friend of the Street of the Goldsmiths now, broke upon my strained hearing. 'Madame is convinced of the dan ger of her relative? he asked smoothly. " 'Yes,' I said.

"I nodded ln return and hastened down the passage. My eyes were now accustomed to the dim light, and I saw that the walls were pierced here and there with carved lattices. "I opened the door and found my self in the crowdod, bustling street. I turned around to look for my nephew and saw the door fly open once more to eject him into my arms. When we compp.red notes I discovered that Al fred had been relieved of his valua bles and money under promise that I 6hould go unharmed. He had been held behind one of the lattices and had watched me pass out of the place.

"Tell them how you were lured behind the blue painted door," she said. Arthur laughed rnefully. "I suppose I was an easy mark for them.
