watch being kept upon his movements ,
\vhllo the ofllsprs visited Berlin's homo at
Twenty-fourth and It streets In the Thomas
JUts. Whan Chief rtccitott knocked at tlu
door ho was admitted by n servant , Bennett
nnd Hudson remaining out of view In the
liallway. The latter officers antlelpilud
troubto In securing Berlin , out in this thuy
\voro happily dissappointod. Berlin was
still in bed. A few minutes nftor Chief

when thu xvord murder was prono'inecd tin

With tears streaming down his cheek ;
Berlin said :
"My God , men , 1 know nothing about It !
Mlllcrl Not in connection witn Muyoi
Miller's death , is HI"
When informed that such was the chai-gt
lie gave away moro to his .feelings and ap
r/nrontly / wns suffurlni : greatly. Ho ashci
permission to dross himself , whtcu wa1
granted , and , stepping into a roar room , in
fonnoU his wlfo of what had transpired n
the room whcro thu ollleers wcro In waiting
Mr * . Berlin was completely prostrated bj

Tno oftluers took Berlin in u closed car

Hays , the other suspect. Ho was found uoa' '

Detective Hudson re.id the warrant to bin

When tola It was October I , hi simply refilled

n blnlld uyiioarunco , and did not show th
least surnrlia nor foar. Ho stopped Into th
waiting carriage and nway whirled th
ofllcers toward the county Jil with thu an :
poets.
So quickly and quietly was the work pot
forniod that no ono guested tbo cause c
the carriage ride , and It was uniuo tlma ntle ;
wards before the news was whispero

The arrest of Berlin nnd' Hays was a pro ;
tuiiirlsc. The theory of sulcido had been
generally accepted in connection with Mavc
Miller's untimely dcmisn that no thoughl

those Interested proclaim they e.ui prove.
When the siMticcted inon have tholr hearing
Iho truthfulness or unthruthfuinoss ot the
claim will bo proven.
The motive It is said for removing Mayor
Mlllor was because ho had declared war upon
thn gambling houses and intended to not
permit their running a aln In South Omilri
ilurlrg his administration. This is what
those sav who bollovu the mavor was mur
dered and they rvilLspiro no cftort to provo
that such is iho case.
About tilt ! I'rlnnnrM.
Did : Berlin , ono of the men undar arrest ,
is a young man not over III ) year * of ago. Ho
has been In South Omaha for two or three
years and has conducted n largo irnmbllng
honso during that tlma. Hectored down
when Mayor Miller's order was Issued nnd
has not rcopcnod , although ha had rcllttca
nnd refurnished his place , nnd expected to

Charles Hays , the ether suspect , Is also
aboutyo voarsof a o and is unmarried. Ho
Is n gambler and has been in South Oinalm
since last May. He has been there several
times previous to the last visit. His parents
reside no.ir Malvorn , la.

northeast corner of the upper tier of cells
in tno west wing of the prison. When the
sheriff called him Hays stopped promptly to
tbo barred door and bid the ret ) or tor a ploa--

the reporter what ho know about his arrest
and how ho spent thu time that il.iy and
night.
llujs Tolls Ills Stury.
"Mv arrest was n era-it surprise to mo , "
s.ald Hays , "and I can hardly umlurolutul It ,
thouch as you sco 1 am tryinz to make iho
host of nn unpleasant mistake. On the after
noon of October I loft South Omaha with n
couple of friends nnd spent two or three
hours in town. My friends did not leave mo
all the tlmo I was awnv from home. Along
about-I o'clock wo took a carat the Puxton
and rode back to South Oniuba. "
When asked who accompjnioJ him on that
afternoon tiip ttio prlsonor said that Charles
Harris , a roof painter , nnd Jack Matter , an
employe of ono of the packing houses , wore
hb companions.
"What did you do In the evening ! "
"After supper. " said Hays. " 1 came over
to the city nnd wont to Ilnyd's theater to see
'A Trip to Africa'and the tlrst I heard of
Mayor Miller's death was on a car going
homo after the bhow. "
"How lone have you known Berlin I" THE
Bnn man asked.
"I am only slightly acquainted with him ,
having mot nim only over ttio gambling

I'aclllc coast last M.iy to visit inv sister ,
Mrs. Lioorgo Dcaver , who lives at tbo corner

Hays naked tuo sheriff , who was standing
near by , when and how soon he would have
a hearing. When ho was told that ho would
probably DO arraigned in a day or so be ap-
poarcd much pleaso.l and remarked that tha
sooner ho was called into court tha butter ho
would like it , as ho was anxious to get out.
So far Hays has not retained an attorney.
llorliii Did Not Cure to Tulk.
A visit was next paid to the largo coriidor
below , whcro Borlln stood talking with sev
eral of the Inmates. Ho was called aside
and told the object of the newspaperman's
call. In reply Berlin sain that bo bad en
gaged \V. R Uurley to look after his interests -
ests , ami acting upon the udvluo of his coun
sel would have to decline to talk about the
mutter ut nil. Berlin appeared tube quite
cheerful , and did not teem to fear the con
sequences of a trial ,
When Miller W.tH Killed.
Along towards evening on Tuesday , Octo

Nnw YOIIK , NOX3D. . The presbytery this
afternoon roiuuieu the trial of I'rof , liriggs.
The lloor was at oucj accorded the prosecut
ing committee to stnio its position on Prof.
Ijrligs' objections to the cuar os , and his
dorannd that numbers four and seven bo
stricken out.
Dr. Hrlgps' friends and opponents alike
realized that n crsh was immlnont and every
step in ted ly's proceedings was followed
with Intense intoron. Scored ot the lay and
clerical jurors provided thetnsolvos with the
presbytery roll in order to chuck off the
names of iho absentees and thus bu enabled
to forecast , If possible , the res"ttlt of the test
vote , which was soon to bo tukon on tbe
question of striking out two ot th-j charges
which the prosecuting committee had pre
ferred against him. The session was favored
with the presence of Uov. Willlntu 0. Voutig
of Center college , moderator of tbo general
assembly. In accordance with Dr. Hliss'
request the dlulngulshed visitor led in
praver. '
Moderator Bliss announced thnt thn busi-
ne s botoro the court was the consideration
of the motion to strlko out the two charges
referred to , and then Aloxandnr. who offered
the motion , hod the lloor. That urosbytori.m
said that ho was wllllnir to yield the Ilojr to
the prosecuting ; committee to learn whether
it bail decided to abandon or to presi the
churgos.
Oliji'ctnl to Ir. Hrlssi * I'rcjti'st.
Dr. liooth majo the point of order tlitit the
protmt made by Dr. Uriggs ycstorday was a
" '
munaco to tho" existence o'f tlio court and
could not , therefore , be considered.
Tno moderator made no ruling on the
point.
Ootunol McCook then ro o nnd read the
pinion of tno committee on the motion , and
rgucil that the two charges could not bo
iroppad. In reference to chr.rgo seven ,
'Gtonol McCoolt said that Ur. Urigjs' answer
ivas irrelevant , because although he had
ifllrniQd before Iho orofcssors of the Union
icmlnnry that ho believed thnt one who died
mponltcnt was forever lost , ha had since
jromulcatod his theory of progressive sanct-
licalion u bib huiutrural address , and it. was
n the address.thnt the charge was founded.
The fourth cnnrgo could not bo droppad , be-
aufo Dr. 13rlgu > ' denial of the fulllllmcnt of
he details ot prophecy was n denial of the
bible and an impcuctimcat of Uie omnipo-
'onco of Ciod.
Dr. Alexander Interrupted Colonel Me-
Jook by insisting that the commlltcomcn
: md uo right to nrguo the question , nud Colonel
nel MetJook rcsuiiiod nis t > e.it. /
Dr. nrlgg.s took the lloor and said that ono
of Colonot McUoou's points was based on a
typographical error In" the printed copy tind
must bo dropped. He declared that the
offer made yesterday to waive his objection
to the six ether objections was mido con
ditionally.
Ur. Kobinson , the trroat hymn writer ,
w.intoU to know what the conditions wore.
Ho was answered by Dr. VanOyke , and
corroborated bv the defendant , th.it the
condition was that the charges which em
bodied two separate counts should be
divided. Tbo pastor of the church in which
the trial is being held movol that the cora-
mlttco charges bo considered seriatim , and
that until Iho fourth charge wns reached the
motion to strike it out ba laid on the tablo.
This motion was lost and Dr. Alexander's
motion to strike out charge four was taken
up.
Cli.irjiml t'iifiilrnt"is.
Prof. Brown of the Union seminary , and
foremo tof Dr. Ilriggs' supporters , tooU the
lloor. He said that iho committee had acted
unfairly in quotine pprt of Dr. Briggs1
statements and taking them out of their
proper connection. ' 'Any minister , " he said ,
fervently * "could be proved a heretic : by thla
course. "
Calls for the question resounded through
the room , but Dr. Booth submitted that the
ether side might ho permitted to hnvu some
thing to say. "Wo are not prepared to ranlii-
tain that nn enlargement which ineicly
explains n charge is no matter. "
l'"ully ' fifteen minutes were taken by Dr W ,
O. Shudd , who detinsd the inclining of the
word "disclaimer.1 "Alaugliwas precipitated
by bis statement that Dr. Hrlggs was net
guilty of falsehood , but of sot contradiction ,
Dr. Hastings , the venerable president of the
faculty with which the defendant is con
necled , did not mince woril.s in claiming thai
iho charge contained now matter. Saiil ho ;
"Tho change made In the ctiargo is radical ,
It elves tuo liu direct to Dr. Hrlgcrs nntl
there Is no getting around tt by casuistry. "
"I call Dr. Hastings to older , " exclaimed
William P. Worrall , Colonel Shopard's pri
vate secretary.
"I don't want to bo Interrupted by that
young man , " exclaimed tha doctor.
Thoolteci of Mr. Worrall's point was that
Dr. Hastings was cautioned to use milder
language. Ho continued by afllrming thai
Dr. Brings should * bo his own Interpreter ,
nnd ns ho 1ms disclaimed the charge , tu <
ctiargo should bo dropped.
A vote was tnkun and the motion wa ;
carried by the decided vote of T ! ) to 1U.
I'uto or tliii Sntuntli Cliurgo.
The seventh charge suffered tbo same fati
by about the same voto. Coldnol McCool
usued ilmt an exception to the court's actloi
be entered on the court's record in behalf o
the prosecuting committee.
Just before adjournment Dr. Urlges cailoi
attention to the fart that the court mus
diminish In numbers daily unless provinioi
wcro made for permitting thosn nccessaril1
absent at ono o ? more of the sessions to retain
tain their privilege of voiliig. He suggostoi
that the moderator bo empowered to gran
Icuvo ot absence lor cause.
"I am willing to leave it to the honor o
an ) Juror , " he said , "to abstain from votlnt
on every question of which lie has not bean
both side * . If ibis is not done wo ahal
dwindle Into a rump court , HO small tha' . it
voice will bo rocolved with no respect. "
Lawyer McCook answered that tno cour
must libido by .the provisions of the book o
discipline. Ho was willing to accept nn
limitations of tlmo In presenting his cat !
thnt might ba flxod by the presbytery , pro
vlded the same restrictions wore placed upo
Dr. Briggs.
Tlio latter declared such it proposition t
bo unfair , as he ciuld not know what nrgu
nicnts might bo used ugalnst LI in , and h
must bo accorded an opportunity of inocttn
them. The court tooU a recess untir'tgmoi

republic , nnd to nvcngo himself on Iho minis
ters , his Into colleagues , To bring about
their fate ho llrst attacked M. l-'loquet.
Ho will soon attack Picsidont Carnet in Iho
person of his relative. M. Const-ins accuses
him of not having shown uuo euro in scrutl-
nl7ing iho report of ono of the engineers
sent lo Panama. Ho reckons upon the In
vestigating committee to mxio it difllcnlt for
M. Kouvinr , minister of finance , and M.
Hocho , minlstor of commerce , his colloairnos
who did not resign , lo continue to hold tholr
portfolios.

ing that they had not sufllclcnt political im
portance for a fight against Boulanglsm ,
kept n copy of the letters. Now , hero urj
the documents which have brought about all
this scandal.
This is the actual causa of the ministerial
crisis. At proient wo have less than IUO
deputies compromised. For nil that wo
shall soon have a presidential crlsU , jusl bo-
ciiusn M. Conslans wants to ba nveneed and
to become president. Truly politics is a
beautiful thing.
The Panama canal matter continues to
absorb the attention of everyboily , M.
Monchicourt , the liquidator of the canal
company , replies to M. Lautorbach
in nn interview in Iho Herald ,
and protests against the intention of
the prouunciamonto. Ho assorts that the
renewal of the contract between the Panama
Railway company and the Pacltic Mail com
pany was Impossible , booauso the conditions
imposed upon the Pact tic Mall company wcro
too burdensome. Nevertheless the Panama
Hallway company continues to put forth all
Us efforts "to assure transit to all points
