Unable to control herself an)

ud burst into tears. When the door
pened and she taw her husband led
away, pale and trembling, between
those two burly policemen, it was aa
If all she cared for on earth had
gone out of her life forever. Capt.
Clinton laid his hand gently on her
(boulder. With more sympathy in his
lace than was his custom to display,
"Now, little woman 'taln't no kind
of use carrying on like that! If you
want to help your husband and gel
aim out of his trouble you want to
get busy. Sitting there crying your
yes out won't do him any good."
Annie threw up her head. Her eyes
were red, but they were dry now. Her
lace was set and determined. The
captain was right. Only foolish wom
en weep and wail when misfortune
knocks at their door. The right sort
of women go bravely out and make a
fight for liberty and honor. Howard
was Innocent She was convinced ot
that, no matter how black things
looked against him. She would not
leave a stone unturned till she had
regained for him his liberty. With
renewed hope In her heart and reso
lution in her face, she turned to con
front the captain.
"What has he done?" she demanded.
"Killed hia friend, Robert Under
wood." Ha watched her face closely to see
what effect hia words would have on
"Robert Underwood dead!" ex
elalmed Annie with more surprise
"Yes," said the captain sternly,
"and your husband, Howard Jeffries,
"That's not true! I'd never believe
that," said Annie promptly.
"He's made a full confession," went
on the captain.
"A confession!" she echoed uneasi
ly. "What do you mean?"
"Just what I say. Your husband
has made a full confession in the
presence of witnesses, that he came
here to Underwood's rooms to ask
for money. They quarreled. Your
husband drew a pistol and shot him.
He has signed a confession which will
be presented to the magistrate this I
Annie looked staggered for a mo
vent, but her faith in her husband
waa unshakeable. Almost hysterically
ahe cried: '
"I don't believe it. I don't believe

signing something. Everybody knows
your methods, Capt. Clinton. But

Trying a different tack, he asked
"Did you know Mr. Underwood?"
She hesitated before replying, then
Indifferently she said:
"Yes, I knew him at one time. He
introduced me to my husband."
"Where was that?"
"In New Haven, Conn."
"Up at the college, eh? How long
have you known Mr. Underwood?"
Annie looked at her Inquisitor and
said nothing. She wondered what be
was driving at, what importance the
question bad to the case. Ktnaliy sue
"I met him once or twice up at New
Haven, but I've never seen him since

heart misgave her as she saw the
look of satisfaction in the captain's
"Ah!" he exclaimed. "Not very
good friends, eh? Iu fact, your hus
band didn't like him, did he?"
"He didn't like him well enough to
run after him," she replied hesitat
ingly. 1 The captain now started off in an

By this time Annie bad grown sus
picious of every question. She was
on her guard.
"Jealous? Wrhat do you mean?
No, he was not jealous. There was
never any reason. 1 refuse to answer
any more questions."
The captain rose and began to pace
"There's one little thing more, Mrs.
Jeffries, and then you can go. You
can help your husband by helping us.
I want to put one more question to
you and be careful to answer truth
fully. Did you call at these rooms
1 last night to see Mr. Underwood?"
"I!" exclaimed Annie with mingled
astonishment and indignation. "Of
. "Sure?" demanded the captain, eye
ing her narrowly.
"Positive," said Annie firmly.
The captain looked puzzled.
"A woman called here last night to
see him," he said thoughtfully, "and
I thought that perhaps"
Interrupting himself, he went quick
ly to the door of the apartment and
called to some one who was waiting
in the corridor outside. A boy about
18 years of age, in the livery cf an
elevator attendant, entered the room
The captain pointed to Annie.
"Is that .the lady?"
The boy looked carefully, and then
shook his head.
"Don't think so no, sir. The other
lady was a great swell."
"You're sure, eh?" said the captain.
"I think so," answered the boy.
"Do you remember the name she
"No, sir," replied the boy. "Ever
since you asked me "
Annie arose and moved toward the
door. She had no time to was'e
there. Every moment now was pre
cious. She must get ltgal assistance
at once. Turning to Capt. Clinton, she
"If you've no further use for me,
captain, I think I'll go."
"Just one moment, Mrs. Jeffries,"
The face of the elevstur boy sud
denly brlgl:t(iied up.
"That's it," he said 'eagerly. "Tl,; t's
it Jeffries. I think that waa the
name she gave, sir."
"Who?" demanded the captain.
"Not this lady," uaid the boy. "The
other lady. I think she said .le fr'eg,

The captain waved his hand toward

Washington, April 15. The Demo
cratic party met its first serious trou
ble lu the house of representatives.
At the close of a session marked by
the activity of Insurgents In the Dem
ocratic ranks, by reason of which the.
Republicans nerrowly missed scoring
a triumph, the house passed the Ruck
er bill for publicity of campaign con
tributions before election.
The fight arose over the extent to
which publicity should be applied.
Rut for the vigorous and continued,
use of the Democratic party whip an.
Important Republican amendment ex
tending publicity to the Individual re
ceipts and expenses of candidates for
congress, would have been retained la
the hill when It finally passed.
As it was, the amendment was
adopted over the protest of the Demo
cratic lenders, by the support of fifty
two Democrats who voted with tha
solid Republican strength.

Resort to a parliamentary move en
abled the Democrats later to get rid.
of the amendment, but twenty-eight
of their number refused to change
their attitude, and stuck with the Re
publicans in opposing the Democratic
Tho Rucker bill passed finally by a
unanimous vote, but only after a
stormy acene. The amendment of-,
fered by Representative Jackson, a
new Republican member from Kan
sas, required all candidates for con
gress to file statement of the source
and use of their Individual campaign
funds, In both the primary and gen

side and encountered the opposition,
of the Democratic loaders.

publicity of funds by the campaign
committee ten days previous to elec-
tlon and the filing of supplemental
statements every mree nays
after until election day.
Kopp Amendment Adopted.
The Rucker hill limited publicity at
campaign expenditures to sums of
tl(K) or over, but Mr. Rucker accepted
an amendment. of Kopp (Rep., Wis.),
requiring the publicity of all payments
In sums of 110 or over for campaign
purposes. Throughout the debate..
Perry Relmont, president of the Na-.
tlonal Publicity Law association an
a former member of the house, occu

Representative Good (la.) caused a
small sensation during the debate on
the Rucker bill by declaring that tha
largest single contributor to the Dem
ocratic campaign fund In Iowa was.
"confidential man for J. Pierpont Mor
gan & Co." He said W. C. ner, a.
former resident of Iowa, had made tha
contribution. He urged an amendment
of the law that would show the tru'
