Tuesday having come here to attend a meeting of the Episcopal Commit tee of this diocese Judge Garner before he became Mark Twain of Kentucky edited a paper at Win chester But that was years ago and

Berlin Dec 17 President Castro of Venezuela maintains his composure in the face of alarming reports which have been published here regarding the disturbances in Venezuela When dispatches were shown to him that the people of Caracas had arisen against him burned the pictures and statues of the president in the pub lic squares and had made an attack upon a number of buildings includ- Ing the stores of several of his warm est adherents and that several per sons had been killed Castro after having one of the members of his party make a translation of these into Spanish said quietly I dont believe it I had dispatches from Ca racas but they mentioned nothing of the kind President Castro was asked for an expression of his views regaramg Hollands seizure of Venezuelan ships but he answered I am In Ger many ina private capacity He referred the correspondent to Senor VelozGoiticoa the Venezuelan charge daffaires whom he authorized to talk for him The charge then made the following statement- In reply to your question I doubt what has been published with regard to Hollands aggression because no declaration of war has been made nor has a blockade been announced and none established Therefore the seizure of small Venezuelan vessels by sheer force can not be described other than as an act of piracy un worthy any enlightened civilized countryOn other hand such a course would jeopardize the arrangements which Venezuela has proposed to Holland through confidential agents and could even have a worse effect Inasmuch as Venezuela in meeting payments due to Holland takes for that purpose a portion of the pre scribed 30 per cent of the customs receipts Thus Hollands act might place Venezuela a position of be ing unable to continue payments which also would jeopardize the in terests of other nations Holland in the wrong in the difficulty between that country and Venezuela and she is still more involved through the at titude which the Dutch government recently has adopted uIn view of this state of the case the Venezuelan government has In formed the diplomatic corps at Ca racas of these facts and is waiting before taking any further steps Cheney Confirms Riot Story Washington Dec

by the Federal government JThis Panama Commission at the head of which was Admiral Walker thor oughly investigated everything on the isthmus and found that the work rhich had been done by the French

ompanions and gave instructions tc Jock for Barkhouse in case he did aot return Wainwright I took with jae and hailing a hack drove to the JPalace Hotel Ct There was a rattle of wagons and a inistle of departing guests as we drove unto the courtyard of the famous hos Wry I stepped out of the hack and looked about me anxiously Was I to meet the TJnknown or was I to take orders from some emissary of my hidden em jloyer No answering eye met mines I searched the place with eager glance Neither woman nor man of- sU the hurrying crowd had a thought af me I glanced at the clock that ticked ibe seconds in the office of the hotel 3 saw that I had been early and that aTas even now but 20 minutes to the lour The minute hand had not swept past lie figure vm when the door opened mere was a hurried step and two women stood before me leading a child between them Both women were closely veiled and the child was muf led and swathed till its features could aet be seen One of the women was young the ether olderperhaps middleaged Both were tall and wellmade I looked fcgerly upon them for one of them atust be the Unknown the hidden em jtoyer whose task had carried Henry ITilton to his death who held my life SR her hands and who fought the des perate battle with the power and hued of Doddridge Knapp It was to e younger that I turned as the more rely to have the spirit of contest but at was the older who spoke Here is your charge Mr Wilton abesaid In a low agitated voice As afce spoke I felt the faint suggestion r the peculiar perfume that had greeted me from the brief letters of- the Unknown f am ready for orders I said with a bow Your orders are In this envelope aW the Unknown hurriedly thrust IiIca paper into my hand Drive for ibe boat and read them on the way teN have no

didnt see him I said Keep the Ohild between us and shoot anybody who tries to stop us or to climb into fie hack I must read my orders All Tight sir said Wainwright gating the child comfortable between is 1 tore open the envelope and drew a forth the scented paper with its fa jniliar firm yet delicate handwriting uid read the words Take the train with your men for Livermore Await orders at the hotel Protect the boy at all hazards Inclosed in the sheet were gold aotesxto the value of 500a thought iful detail for which I was grateful at the outset of such an expedition I thrust the money into my pocket and pondered upon the letter wondering there Livermore might be My knowl Californiawas geotmemory had some thought of questioning Wainwright who was busy trying to make friends with the child but re lecting that I might be supposed to know all about it I was silent Wain vrigths efforts to get the child to speak were without success The lit tie thing might from its size have been live years old but it was dumb frightened as I supposed by the strangeness of the situation and urbuld speak no word Why was he put thus in my charge t WhithervasSytjthat I had not stopjjedthalun is r f all i 4 J Ilfidout Into the yellowgreen ter1 Keep together boys I cautioned my retainers Has any one seen gangThere murmur in the negativeWell Abrams will you slip around and see if any of them got aboard Theres no such thing as being com f surerr In the hurry and excitement of preparation and departure the orders I had given and received and the work that filled every moment I had been conscious of the uneasy burden of a task forgotten I had surely neglected something Yet for my life I could not see that we lacked anything I had my seven retainers the boy was safe with us I had my purse we were well armed and every man had his ticket to Livermore But at last the cause of my troubles came to my mind Great Scott I thought Its Doddj ridge Knapp That little engagement in the stock market is casting its shadow before It seemed likely indeed that the de mands of my warring employers would clash here as well as in the conflict over the boy Yet with all the vengeful feeling that filled my heart as I looked on the child and called up the memory of my murdered friend I could but feel a pang of regret at the prospect that Doddridge Knapps fortune should be placed in hazard through any unfaith fulness of mine My uncomfortable reflections were broken by the clanging engine bells and the forward movement of the pas sengers as the steamboat passed intoI the slip at Long Wharf Stand together boys I cautioned my men Keep back of the crowd Wainwright will take the boy and the rest of you see that nobody gets near himAll right said Wainwright lifting the child in his arms It will take a good man to get him away from me Wheres Abrams I asked noting that only six of my men were at hand You sent him forward said Lock hartNot for all day Well he hasnt been seen since you told him to find out whos aboard Its no use to wait for him I growled But the next man that takes French leave had better look somewhere else for a job for by the great horn spoon hes no man of mineWe marched off the boat in the rear of the crowd I in no pleasant humor and the men silent in reflection of my displeasure And with some difficulty we found seats together in a forward coachThe train was the eastbound over land and it seemed hours before the baggage was taken aboard and the signal given to start I grew uneasy but as my watch assured me that only 10 minutes had passed when the en gine gave the first gentle pull at the train I suspected that I was losing the sift of patience known to ask more questions to get more light on the duties that were expected of me But the hack on a sudden pulled up and I saw that we were before the long low ugly wood en building that sat square acros- Market street as the gateway to S Francisco through which the tide oi travel must pass to and from the Gol den out on both sides Wain wright I cautioned You carry th boy and Ill shoot if theres any trou ble See that you keep him safe There was nearly 10 minutes before the boat left but the hurry for tickets the rush to check baggage the shouts of hackmen and expressmen the tle and confusion of the coming an departing street cars that centered a the ferry made us inconspicuous among the throng as we stepped out of the hack Here Fitzhugh Brown I said catching sight of two of my retainers get close about Have you seen any thingany signs of the enemy I havent said Fitzhugh bu Abrams thought he saw Dotty Fer guson over by the Fair Wind saloon there Said he cut up Clay street be fore the rest of us caught sight ol himso maybe Abrams was off hi nut Quite likely I admitted as we turned the jutting corner of the build ing and came under shelter by th ticket office But keep a clos watchThe other four retainers were i the passageway and I called to th ticket seller for the tickets to Liver more By the price I decided that Livermore must be somewhere within 50 miles and marshaling my troop about the boy marched into the wait ing room past the doorkeeper through the sheds and on to the ferry boat- I saw no sign of the enemy aud breathed freer as the last belated passenger leaped aboard the foldin gangplank was raised and the steamer with a prolonged blast of the whistle To be

Washington Dec 16The hopes of the socalled insurgents in the house of representatives for a re vision of the rules of that body were dissipated for the time being at least when Mr Gardner of Massa

substantial majority the house voted to take away from the committee on foreign affairs consideration of the resolu tion which In its original form sim ply called for information from the secretary of state regarding what the British house of commons had done In that regard A ruling by the speaker that the amendment of Mr Gard ner changed the character of the res olution in such a way as to not make it privileged was sustained and the resolution then was laid on the table After passing some bills relating to the District of Columbia the remain der of the day was taken up with the bill to
