AMELIA AND THE BABY.
. . :
By G. H. AKER..
tO OHN JACKSON uncon-
t )i 'scioujiy increased his pace
O I O as his home came in sight.
3 He walkied quickly up the
OT?f little path, glancing in
through, the sitting-room window as he
passed. The warm red flicker of the
firelight dancing on the walls looked
cozy and inviting, in pleasing contrast
! to the cold and damp out of doors.
"Ah! it is: good to be home," thought
John as he tapped at the door instead
of ringing. . "I expect Amelia is wait
ing for me sitting in the firelight so
that she can let me in the minute I
knock." And he pictured to himself
in cheerful anticipation his wife eager
ly awaiting his home-coming, sitting
in the cozy firelit room. To his sur-
prise there was to his twice-repeated
knocking. "Where in the world can
Amelia be? She always runs so quick
- ly to let me in!" And John was forced
reluctantly to ring the bell.
"Where is Mrs. Jackson?" he asked
the maid as he walked into the empty
"Upstairs with the baby," answered
"Is there anything wrong?" demand
ed John a little anxiously.
"Oh, no, sir. He's as merry as t
i King the darling I don't wonderMrs
Jackson can't tear herself away!"
. John was cold and tired and he could
ot help a feeling of disappointment
' stealing over him. He glanced at the
fender ho slippers were there, and it
was the first time since their marriage
that Amelia had not put them ready.
He slowly fetched them, changed, and
flinging himself into an armchair en
joyed the pleasant warmth of the fire,
Presently he got up.
"I must go tap and see what Amelia
is doing," he said, "and give the little
man a kiss before he goes to sleep
!And he went upstairs.
"Is that you. John?" called Amelia;
do come in here and look at baby
Doesn't he look a cherub?"
John went into the night, nursery
where his wife was standing near the
little cot "I thought you were lost,"
Amelia was too engrossed in the
frolics of her little son to notice her
husband or the shade of disappoint
ment which crossed his face when she
did not turn to greet him
John put his arm around her waist.
""""""Give me a kiss, little woman?" .
Amelia kissed him hastily then
stooping over the cot she lifted out the
little crowing bundle of humanity and
1 kissed it passionately. "Now give
laddy a kiss," she cried, and John sol
emnly saluted .the little roseleaf cheek,
"Now come and dress for dinner
- The little chap ought to be asleep by
-"In a minute," answered Amelia
"You go and get ready. I shall be
down by the time cook is ready."
A little later John was again waiting
for Amelia., downstairs. Dinner was
ready waiting getting cold, and John
was hungry. Presently-Amelia called
over the banisters:
"I say, John dear, begin without me;
I shall be down in a minute or two,
and don't want any soup." So John
sat down alone and began his meal in
solitary state. He was more than half
through before Amelia put in an ap
"I wish Mollie would come; I want
to tell her several things," thought
John. But when she did come down,
the things were left unsaid. She chat
tered unceasingly about the baby, all
he had done and looked that day, .and
as the little man had only had one
birthday there was but little variety
In his daily proceedings. John listened
patiently. He was devoted to his little
son, but he had a vague feeling that
'Amelia might at least take some inter
est in his own doings during the day.
"Baby can monopolize her all day,:
thought he. "I think it my turn in the
During the next few months a curl
ous change came over Amelia Jackson.
Her whole life seemedwrapped up in
Her little son. It was not that she
lovedi her husband less, but if it was a
choice between John and thebaby
baby was never the one to be left.
John quickly noticed the change. He
had been used to treat his wife as his
. confident, talking his business affairs
over with her, and often relying on her
. Intuitive feminine judgment for a de
cision on debatable points. Gradually
however, all this was changed. Ame
lia was too eager to talk of baby's lit
tie doings to listen to ner nusDana, so
he almost unconsciously gave up the
attempt to confide in her or to ask her
'ue iia was sitting on the sands a
Atlantic City reading a few yards off
was baby with his devoted playmate
nnrse. The latter was making
sand tpiea vhe little man to break
down as quickly as she turned them
out of his bucket
'I've never read John's letter', sud
denly thought Amelia, with a sudden
twinge of conscience. "Poor old
dear, I wonder how he's getting on in
town all by himself. . It will remind
him of his bachelor days before we
were married. Still. I simply couldn't
eave baby here with nurse I should I
miss him too dreadfully."
In the early spring John Jackson's
little heir had had an attack of whoop
ing cough, and on his recovery the doc
tor had suggested sea air. Dr. Cary
was an old friend of John's; and seeing
the direction of affairs in -that house
hold, had hoped to mend matters by
his suggestion. He thought that once
nurse and baby were down at the sea
side, Amelia would be freed frjom the
unconscious slavery into which she
had slipped, and John would once
more enjoy his home life. What was
his dismay on calling a few days later
to find the house deserted, except for
John and the cook!
Amelia opened and read the letter.
Its contents occasioned her no small
surprise. They were as folows:
"My Darling Wife I'm. sorry to in
terrupt your holiday. But, after the
first few days, cook's behavior has
been, to say the least, mysterious. She
always seems to be out, so you may
imagine that mattery are not very sat
isfactory here. I have not said any
thing to her, as I know you think very
highly of. But I certainly think you
had better come home as soon as you
can and put matters right. I do not
thinls I had better interfere. As for
leaving baby, h' cannot be in better
hands than he is with Mary.
"I cannot possibly come home," said
Amelia to lierself. "How stupid John
is. J shall go in and write to him at
once, ana ten mm l cannot possiDiy
leave baby. He must square things
up with cook himself."
So she went indoors and wrote to
John, telling him of her decision. A
week later, what was her dismay ou
receiving a wire from Dr. Cary:
"Come home. Your .husband ill.
Cary." was the curt message.
Amelia was thoroughly frightened.
"What can have happened?" she
said. "I hope it isn't some accident at
those horrid works.. Some one is al
ways getting hurt there." She hastily
packed, caught the first train back to
town, and drove home in a hansom.
A sensation of fear of -the unknown
stole over her. What if John wero
seriously ill! The telegram gave her
no clue, and wrapped up as she was in
her little , son, she had not allowed her
self time!, to think of the possible seri
ousness! affairs at home. On receiv-

Dr. Cary took her quietly into the
"I fear your husband is very serious
ly ill," he said gravely. Then in a few
words he told her of all that happened
in her absence of the advantage that
had been taken by the cook of her
mistress's absence. How she had gone
out each night often leaving John an
ill-cooked dinner or none at all. How
she had come home late and lain in
bed the next morning, and let John go
dowatown to his office without his
breakfast And how she had put
damp sheets on his bed. The result
of the month's discomfort and neglect
was that John was lying seriously ill
with double pneumonia.
"And I' am an old man," said the
doctor. "May I give you one word of
Amelia looked up questioningly.
"What is it?" she asked.
"If your husband pulls through let
him see that he is first in your affec
tions. Lately you have given your
whole being up to baby, and your hus
band has been left in the cold. Of
course, I know it has not been so in
reality, but appearances have been
against you,' "and your husband has
lately had a disappointed look that you
would be the first to resent."
John Jackson's recovery was very
slow. Thanks to the devoted nursing
of' his wife and the skill of Dr. Cary
the lung attack did not prove fatal as
it had threatened.
At! last the day arrived when he was
pronounced sufficiently convalescent to
be allowed downstairs. -He was lying
in a sunny corner with Amelia sitting
sewing by his side.
"It is indeed good, dearest, to have
you downstairs. It really looks like
recovery to-day," she said.
John smiled and then said:
"Do you know, Amelia, I am almost
sorry to be getting all right again!''
"John dear," exclaimed Amelia,
"whatever for? It must have been a
"I thoroughly enjoyed it" said John
grarp-Iy. "I am such a selfish brute,
Amelia, and nver so thoroughly enjoy
myself as when I feel I am indisput
ably first in your eyes."
"Jo!:n," she said at length, "you al
ways were and always will be indis
putably first. I don't know why I got
so stupid over baby just before you
were ill. It is over now. I don't love
baby any the less, but I shall be more
sensible new. Will you forgive me for

Name in Bankruptcy Proceedings

Then Been Concluded.
Cleveland, O., Special. Mrs. Chad
wick, when placed on the stand in the
bankruptcy proceedings against her
before Referee Remington, she re
fused at first to be sworn. After con
sultation with her attorneys she finally
consented to take the oath. She was
then asked to state her name. She
refused to reply to this or any other
questions that followed.
Mrs. Chadwick sought refuge in her
privileges as an accused person, and
she refused to answer most of the
questions on the ground that what she
said might tend to aid the prosecution
of her criminal cases. Referee Rem
ington! found in her favor, although
he insisted, against her counsel's wish
es, in making her give a quasi-expla-nation
of her refusal.
"My financial affairs are so closely
allied with the case in the Federal
Court that anything affecting the one
must necessarily affect the other," said
Mrs. Chadwick, and the referee de
clared that that explanation of her
position was as admirably expressed
as it could be.
"What they want is to get posses
sion of our information," stoutly de
clared Attorney Dawley, on behalf of
Despite Dawley's objections and his
irate declarations that Mrs. Chadwick
was being unjustly and improperly im
posed on Mrs. Chadwick was forced
to take the stand and be sworn. This
she did very gracefully, smiling pleas
antly and cheerfully, as the referee
administered the oath. But she refus
ed to say that she was Mrs. Cassie L.
Chadwick, and smilingly persisted in
that "course. Referee Remington vain
ly appealed to her, explained to her,
cajoled her, and almost threatened her.
Mrs. Chadwick was an interested lis
tener to all he had to say, but hi 9
conversation moved her not a jot. Fin
ally Remington grew a little exasper
ated at her cheerful indifference.
Is this by your adviceTfe'wterrr
ly inquired of Dawley. '
"I refuse to answer," was Dawley's
reply. "Counsel can take care of him
self," he said significantly. "I am not
under obligations to disclose to any
one, not even the court, the nature of
my professional advice to my client."
Theentire examination' was a series
of -wrangles and disputes. Mrs. Chad
wick answered a few questions but
her answers were remarkably free
from information. Finally the court
and counsel agreed to resume the bear
ing March 13, with the understanding
that Mrs. Chadwick would testify free
ly on that date' if the criminal cases
against her had been disposed of by
that time. I

The Senate and House Regularly at
Work What They are Doing.
Mr. Webb's Fight For Free Cotton.
Congressman Webb Tuesday made
a strenuous and all but successful ef
fort to so amend the Philippine tariff
bill as to remove the duty on cotton.
On the first vote, the majority lined
up in support of the North Carolina
member, but Mr. Scott, of Kansas,
who was in the chair, rescued the sit
uation for the committee having charge
of the bill by announcing that a sec
ond vote would be taken, owing to the
fact that there had been so much con
fusion inv the chamber. The amend
ment ' was then voted down by the
small majority of 99 to 95, and mo
tion to recommit the bill, made by Mr.
Cooper, ranking minority member of
the ways and means committee, fail
ed to effect any material change In
the Republican majority. When Mr.
Webb was advocating the adoption of
his amendment, Mr. Payne took issue
with him, whereupon the North Caro
lina member asked the Republican floor
leader if he did not know that remov
al of duty on cotton would aid the
Republican mill owners of Fall River.
Mr. Payne said he did not know that
it would, to which Mr. Webb replied
that it was the "duty- of the chairman
of the ways and means committee to
know a fact so potent.
Rate Bill to Go Over.
. The Senate Tuesday passed the Mili
tary Academy appropriation bill and
began consideration of the Indian ap
propriation bill. Early in the day, in
response to a. question, Mr. Elkins,
chairman of the committee of inter
State commerce, expressed the opinion
that it would be impossible to secure
railroad rate legislation during the
present session of Congress. The Sen
ate took up the isthmian canal bill,
and agreed to meet an hour earlier to
morrow, in order to advance the bill.
Ex-Senator Higgins finished his pre
liminary statement in opening the de
fense for' Judge Swayne, and one wit
ness for Judge Swayne was examined.
Mr. Elkins, in his statement, regard
ing the railway rate bill, said: "No
decision as to an effort to pass the
bill this session has been reached, but
with the limited time at their dis
posal, it would seem that there is very
little prospect of that result before
adjournment, with only ten days of
the session left and with much other
imperative business to be performed.
It would hardly seem probable that
the most important economic question
of the day could be disposed of in so
short a time, and especially in view of
the fact that only one side of the
question has so far been presented to
Mr. Carmack, a member of the com
mittee on inter-State commerce, ex
cused himself from speaking for the
committee, on the ground that "such
joyous harmony exists there as to ob
literate party lines." He said he eould
assure the -Senate that all of the com
mittee are actuated by a keen desire
to execute at the earliest possible
moment the promises made by the
President of the United States, and
through the medium of the Democratic
platform, and to add that it is the
intention of the whole committee to be
guided in this matter by the Presi
dent. Indeed," he added, "I may go
further, and say, and the chairman
of the committee will correct me if
I am wrong, that I am authorized to
inform the Senate that all the mem
bers recognize in the President the
foremost disciple and ablest lieutenant
of William J. Bryan." The state
ment caused a general burst of laugh
ter, and the incident closed.
When the hearing In the Swayne im
peachment trial was resumed, Mr. Hale
presented an order for a vote in the
Swayne case at 4 p. m. Saturday, and
asked that it go over. He said he
would insist upon the liberal enforce
ment of the rule governing the closing
arguments in the case.
Mr. Palmer replied that the House1
managers would desire at least 'six
hours for the presentation of the
case for the prosecution. He said that
each of the managers would desire to

The Senate Wednesday considered at
some length the bill providing a civil
government for the Panama Canal
zone. The question of the government's
ownership of the Panama Railroad and
its relationship to the general question
of government ownership of railroads
was debated freely. '
A number of witnesses were exam
ined on behalf of Judge Swayne in the
impeachment proceeding against him.

Mr. Perkins at the beginning of the
Mr. Hale re-introduced in somewhat
different form his resolution to bring
the Swayne impeachment trial to a
close next Saturday, saying that he
hpped, in view of information received,
he would not be compelled to again
call it up. This, information, he said,
was to the effect that an arrangement
was being perfected whereby the trial
might be terminated by the end of
the present week. He added that un
less such an arrangement could be
consummated he would find some way
of bringing the matter to the attention
of the Senate so as to get a vote. He
said that. in order to get action upon
the appropriation bills it was abso
lutely necessary to promptly dispose of
Mr. Bacon objected to undue expe
dition in disposing of the Swayne mat
ter, saying that while he agreed with
Mr. Hale as to the importance of press
ing consideration of the regular busi
ness of the Senate, he regarded the trial
as a constitutional function of great
importance, and therefore desiring of
most careful consideration. He sug
gested longer daily seions of the Sen
ate. Consideration of the bill for the gov
ernment of the Panama Canal zone
was then resumed. Mr. Morgan took
exception to some of the provisions oi
the bill, among them one authorizing
the deposit of $1,500,000 to facilitate
work on the canal. He 'saw. no nec
essity, he said,' for employing a bank
for that service. He considered ,the
provision as in the interest of some
House Sends Back Army Bill.
After a brief but spirited debate, the
House sent back to conference the army
appropriation bill. All Senate amend
ments again were disagreed to, with
the single exception of one approprl '
ating $95,000 for continuing the cablt
from Valdez to Seward, Alaska. Therf
was renewed discussion of the provis-.

Senate Failed to Convict on ; Charges
THE VOTE LARGELY A PARTY ONE
Highest Vote Recorded -For Impeach
ment Was 35 and the Lowest Against
It 47, 55 Being Required to Convict
The Larger Votes Were Largely
Along Party Lines Only 13 Votes
For Conviction on the Articles Re
lating to Use of Private Cars.
Washington, Special. The Senate
Monday concluded the impeachment
trial of Judge Swayne by acquitting
him on all the charges made against
him in the articles of impeachment
presented by the House. The voting on
the Swayne case began at 10:10, 20
minutes after the Senate convened, and
continued until 11:45. There was no
discussion, and all the time was con
sumed in taking the 12 votes jnecessary
to dispose of each of the , articles. The.
highest vote for impeachment was 35,
and the lowest against it, 47. On the
two articles charging the use of private
railroad cars, only 13 votes were cast
for conviction. The larger votes were
largely along party lines.
Judge Swayne was not in the Sen
ate during the roll-calls, but in the
President's room, just back of the
chamber. The result of each ballot was
sent to him by his attorneys. Five of
the House managers attended during
the proceedings. When the first article
was read, charging Judge Swayne with
making a false certificate, for expenses
while holding court at Waco, Texas,
the presiding officer said: '"Senators,
how say you, is the respondent, Charles
Swayne, guilty or not guilty as charged
in this article?" The calling of the roll
by the secretary was then begun. The
first Senator to rise in response to the
call was Mr. Alger, who Voted "not
guilty" in clear and distinct' tones. Mr.
Bacon was the first Democratic Sena
tor on the roll, and likewise the first to
answer in the affirmative, finding Judge
Swayne guilty. The vote throughout
was largely partisan, and stood 33 to
49. The Senators who voted guilty
were: Bagon, Bailey, Bard, Bate, Ber
ry, Blackburn, Carmack, Clark, of
Montana; Clay, Cockrell, Culberson,
Daniel, Foster, of Louisiana; Gorman,
Kittredge, Lattimer, McCreary, Mc
Cumber, McEnery, McLaurin. Mallory,
Martin, Money, Morgan, .Newlands,
Overman, Patterson, Pettus; Simmons,
Stone, Taliaferro and Teller 33. Under
the rule requiring a two-thirds vote to
convict, 55 votes in the affirmative
would have been necessary to convict.
As this vote was almost reversed, Judge
Swayne was pronounced to be not guil
ty. The chair announced this to be the
The reading and voting upon the
other articles followed in ; rapid suc

of an excessive charge for expenses
while holding court at Tyler, Texas.
The proceeding in this case was an ex
act counterpart of that on the first
article, and the result was 32 for con
viction to 50 for acquittal; The third
charge also related to excessive ex
pense charges at Tyler, Texas, and the
vote was identical with the $ote on the
