Ho was walking along moodily, with his eyes on the had pnsien into th of Leicester Square when suddenly ho started and trembled from head to foot. A voice, It seemed to him a familiar volee, struok upon his ear. It was speaking volubly In the French tongue. . Hurriedly he drew Aside to allow the person to pase him by; then, looking up, he reoogniiod the Freneh teacher Caussldlere. Tea, It certainly was he, beyond all manner of dotibt! He waa carrylsg en sueh an excited conversation with his companion that he not even noticed Sutherland, whoee sleeve ho had nl moat brvshed. Sutherland's first Impulse was to rush forward and confront the I'rendh man, his next Op drop baok, to remain unobserved behind and follow him. The latter course he followed.

That waa the last seen of Murray alive. The con stable's body was found lying by the roedsttlo next morning, about thirty yards from tho shaft at tho Bonanza mine.

He would not be content with tho recognition of belligerency, but would Insist on the acknowledgement of absolute politi cal liberty. Ho was satisfied that tho people fould not bo content with the pcourso ndvltted by the administration. Inasmuch as thd Cubans for more than two years on many battlefields had demonstrated their valor nnd love .for liberty, he felt thnt they had earned recognition of their political liberty and Hiat It ought to be accord ed to them without further tempor izing. If necessary this recognition should be booked by a lleet of Ameri can vessels In Cuban waters. Ho ex pressed n bollof that oAiicrs of Spanish bonds In this country.
