Taylor entered the camp about midafternoon, hatless and apparently in great distress from having come at such a rapid pace. 'He reported that he and Ha Ains had been attacked by about a dozen Indians soon after eating their noonday meal, and that while Harkins had been shot down he had miraculously escaped the deadly bullets and dashed for the camp. He had been pursued up to within rifle shot of the wagons, and he pretended great fear lest the camp would be immediately attacked. Two of tho prospectors had returned, but two others were still out. Before waiting to question Taylor or hear his whole story the camp prepared for defense. and it was only after an bour had passed away that any one questioned j it to tho men, and he told it “I will shoot bim With my own hand!” sternly replied the captain. “Let everything rest till he awakes. It may have been as be says—that fright and exhaustion may have upset him.’* “But he must guide us to the spot in the morning," persisted Joe. “I shall insist upon that, even if we have to leave the camp alone," added Bess, “It shall be so," replied the captain. “We shall know all in the morning.*’ Bess retreated to the wagon, rent with conflicting emotions and prostrated by grief and doubt, and the men went about their duties without a word to each other. All felt that there was something wrong about Taylor’s story, but all hesitated to believe him guilty of the heinous crime of taking the life of a comrade. Night cftnie down. Taylor had hi(\den his face under his blanket, but be had not closed his eyes in sleep. He was n.rt tortured by remorse. On the contrary, he was elated over the thought that he now alone possessed the secret of tho cave of gold. But he wan troubled that he had not told a better story. Before tiring the shot he had planned .lust how he would act and what he would say. The fear which guilt always brings had upset him and caused him to halt and hesitate and tell a very lame story. Many a man who has planned a crime has thought it all over and prepared i himself at every {amit only to realize after its commission that he left loopholes in his armor of defense. It was long after dark before Taylor rose up. He had then settled on a story : from which he would not vary. He told with such i. K. Xovaoc.    A.    O.    Ursa**.

About this time the other party came in, and it transpired that Taylor alone had seen Indians. None of the others had seen the slightest cause for alarm. In repeating his story Taylor got it badly mixed, and when ho attempted to console the girl, who stood listening to every detail with tearless eyes, she answered: “it may be so. but I cannot believe it. I shall not believe it until I see his dead body.”    ,    , ,TBut are you doubting my words, miss?" “If the Indians killed him his body will be lying where it fell." she answered. “You can find the spot again— you must find it. We cannot go now, as night is coming on, but we shall go in the morning, if the wild beasts have spared his body, I want it for Christian buriaL If they have not, I want what bones they may leave." “What did yon fire at today?** asked Joe as he reached for Taylor’s gun aud proved by the blacking on his finger thrust into the bore that it had been recently discharged. “I—I fired on the Injuns, of course," stammered Taylor. “Oh, you did! We thought yon said you had your gun cm your back and w?i climbing up a mass of rock to ii loc lr around?" “I—I’ve got to lie down and thiak it I borhood. over and quiet my nerves. I’ve had such • cf • j^ht? a close call that I'm rattled aud can't remember just bow it all was." As Taylor flung himself down the men gathered in a group to discuss his story. There was something queer abote it, but as n' one knew of his feeling against Hor'ti na there wm no key to ins actions. Bess sought to furnish one by saying: “I know this man hated father, and I could see it every time lie looked at u*. Why he did I do not know, but I know that he had an ill will. If father is dead apparent sincerity that some of them believed bim, while none disputed. Bess had come forward to hear it, as was her right. When he had finished there was a long, painful silence, broken at last by the girl, who said: “If this story be true you have done only what another might do so situated. We shall know tomorrow. You can find the place again, and you will lead us there." “I—I was dreadfully turned around, and I might not be able to find the exact spot," replied Taylor. “You must!" answered Bess. “My father’s bones must not lie unburied! His death shall not go unavenged!” “Well, m try, and if we all lose our scalps in the effort I cannot lie held responsible. I’m sure there’s an Indian camp not far from that spot, and it's a wonder to me we haven’t been attacked since I came in. There were aa many as seven right after me for two or three miles." The men. aud especially Joe, had looked to see the girl break down nuder the strain, but bile did not She fought against it and clang to the hope that her father still lived, though he might be wounded aud a prisoner. Midnight came and all was quiet Joe went on guard at that hour, and an hour later, as all his senses were kl r nly alert, he heard a whistle.

C., Nov. 25*—“I understand 'since I came into the city,” said Senator Yrest, “that a deficit is upon us; that expense ex ceeds tho income in the govern ment's affairs and that a shortage will occur this year. Some say more, soma say leas, all the way trom $40,000,000 to $90,000,000. I have no opinion at this time what course is hest to pursue. None of us know what state the treasury is iii. It has been hid from us. We know that things have been done witirthe treasury books ueverdone before; that money has been used and funds broken 4into that Foster had no right to tonch. But just how badly we are iii the hole none of us yet know, and can not hope to before congress convenes.

We must not leave it for the next congress.” .tlorrhoH for The Cabinet. A determined effort is being made to induce Mr. Cleveland to place William R. Morrison, of Ilii • cis, in the Cabinet. His long and eminent services in the party are being argued aud it is also asserted n ct with considerable plausibility that his appointment would please the tan fire tonners, among whom Mr. Mmrisoii is a pioneer.

A similar appeal was made to the governor one week ago with a similar result, but since then every tiling possible has been done to change the governor’s decision. The Bishop’s Joke. A good story is now going the rounds among clerical friends of the late rector of the Episcopal Church of the Epiphany, now Bish op George II. Kinsolving, of Texas.

There was another man in the case, and the other man was, of course,* only too delighted to accompany tho wife. bile had a new and very chic costume, and donned it for the occasion. We do that for utfm other man,'’ naturally, though may be we wouldn’t for our own private aud particular man. She came do am to di uuer adorned in the elegant truck and maybe boasted a bit to the husband. She asserted that she was going to the theater with Mr. . Sec. He chewed a cigar otto aud said nothing. The bell rang and the servant announced tbs arrival; of the escort. He ((he husband) still said nothing, but he picked madam (his wife) up in his armb and whqn he sat her down it was in the balli tub filled with water i’he new costume shared the ducking. That’s all. N. B.—Madam did not go the theater after all.— Boston Courier. From Washington. Washington, Nov. 25.—Jerry Simpson is in the city and ascribes the victoiy of the democrats to tim demand of the people for a cut in the present tariff. Ile thinks tho cut should be deep enough to leave an average duty of not more than 20 per cent. Ho thinks congress should go to work on the tariff ag quickly as possible. He says tho candidacy of Mrs. Lease is a p'ay of repubiicaus to make that lady and the populists ridiculous. Representative Bynum is here, and sees no use for an extra session unless the finances should .demand it and so far he one seems to under 6tand just exactly how the public monetary condition stands. Mi. Bynninjsays the first tiling congress will do will l»e to repeal the present federal election laws, and that tho conduct ct certain supervisors ami United States marshals iii the Into elections will act as a strong enough “    n incentive for such repeal.
