Jury in the Kinrade Case Had Sortie
J t * *
Name  in Mind—Stood Ten
to Twelve on Count
HAMILTON, May 12—That tho Kinrade jury was laboring under a misapprehension is now apparent. Pore-
man Spera gavo out an interview today iri which he said that had It not
been for tho .fact that the crown In
concluding tlle investigation' so suddenly, gave the jury., the impression
that Important developments were to
take place If an open verdict were,
brought in, it would .have been more
specific in its, finding.' He said that
the jury was contemplating holding a
meeting to, pass a vote of censure on
the attorney general's department folks, inactivity in UVe case1: An informal
meeting of a number of the jurors was
held this morning, he said, at. which
the reported movemets of two Important witnesses in the case were
commented" on. Foreman Spora said
that the jury had; come In' for any
amount of obloquy for bringing in a
verdict such as they did. Tho jurymen are anxious to place themselves
on record ln some definite way. Thoy
were' anxious.tb give the crown every
opportunity. A letter has been sent
from the jury to the attorney general
in which their stand In tho; case Is
outlined. The foreman said that at
one time the jury stood 10 ttto 2 in
favor of mentioning a namo in the
finding but the majority were persuaded, to refrain from doing so on " the
ground that the crown's* actions might
thereby be hampered.
STRIKE TROUBLES
BUFFALO, N. Y., May ' 11—Unless
the strike, on the'Great Lakes is settled before Saturday next, employers
will have .to pay their, engineers more
when work is resumed.finally..
The, Marine* Engineers' Beneficial
association has determined to demand
an increase in wages,of 15 per cent,
the same to take effect on May 5th.
Up to this time the question of wages
' has not entered the controversy which
has "existed between the marine engineers arid the Lake Carriers association, the former only objecting to the
so-called general welfare plan, or open
shop clauses in the contracts, which
were offered by, the association. „
*' Indications are that there, may be a
general strike of marine workers to
aid those now out, though nothing
definite can be learned .■

A  NOVEL  SCHEME
LONDON May 11—Shut out of the
House of Commons by police especially detailed to circumvent their ingenuity,11'the suffragettes1 today found a
new method of getting their literature
into the hands of the nation's legislators. Chartering a fine steamer launch
which they aggressively labelled' the
Dreadnought, and putting a band on
board,' a party of suffragettes steamed up river this afternoon until opposite, the house of parliament. Here
the boat stopped and the women attracted attention of members on the
terraces-by singing the . Marsellaise,
then suddenly there, was fired from a
launch a broadside of rockets. This
bursted over the terraces and a snow
storm, of pamphlets'fluttered over "the
waiting members. 7' *,-■

The "Fighting Squad" of District 18
has boldly thrown down the gago of
battle to the corporation hirelings who
under iho mask of names borrowed
from air' honest calling have been
wearying thc public eye with allega-
■ tions of discontent and lack of spirit
among the locked out miners.
And the hirelings hn;*'5 lgnominou>,
ly failed to come to tho scrntcli ami
take up thc challenge.
At two monster meetings— ono a
business men's" meeting thrown open
to the public, and the other a union
meeting in which the chairmanship
and gavel and right to conduct tho
meeting were frankly and freely offei
ed to any disaffected member or group
of members—the local champions of
organized labor proved their- serene
confidence in tho justice of Labor's
cause by giving every opportunity for
the presenting of open arid public
proof in support of tlie secret aifd
anonymous lies by means of which the
enemies of labor have been trying to
poison the public mind.
The first of these meetings was held
in the,big town hall at Frank, Alberta
on Sunday afternoon, and was a public
gathering, attracting crowded attendance not only from Frank itself but
from the'neighboring towns of Coleman, Blairmore, Lilie) Passburg, Bellevue and Hillcrest.
This meeting was for the express
purpose of* affording opportunity "for
argument to any and all persons opposed to the position of organized labor,-but hitherto prevented from addressing Labor bodies by reason of
not themselves being members of organized labor.
Not a.single representative of this
class came to the front by way of giving proof that they had confidence in
their case or that even.-the class itself
■has~any—tangible^existence—in—the-
Crow's Nest Pass. '' -    -
which had been expressly arid unanimously forbidden by the Fernie   con- ,
ventlon of April 12-14.
The feeling of uneasiness which had
been created by the attitudo thus
displayed from south of tho line led to
a strong speech from a prominent
member of the Frank local union in
which he urged the summary ending
of all relations with the International
union. A minister however, who
happened tb be present in the audience, proceeded to point out' in a few
earnest sentences that care should .be
taken not to sever tho bonds of brotherhood with their fellow working-
men residing south of,that international lino, which "cuts so littlo ice" In
the struggles of the working class with
the exploiting class. Finally advice
on the/ question was' taken .from
.Mr. .Taxon, the visitor from the prairie
and that gentleman solved the problem by commending both the democratic principles favored by the first
speaker, and the regard for International comradeship evinced by tlie minister, and suggesting that the proper
course would be to not withdraw from
the International but rather to appeal
to the comradeship of the rank . and
file of local unions, if after a fair play
testing of the situation; it should prove
that the enitre International board of
26 members was bent on practicing or
supporting those autocratic ..methods
which prove such, a curse to all uplift
movements that fall into them. This *
advice was accepted as providing a
middle course which would conserve
de-^ocraUc.princinles without disrupting organized strength, and resolutions calling upon the district board, to
prepare consecutive appeals, .first to'
tlie International board, and'then to
the local unions generally throughout
America, were unanimously adopted.
At-the—Goleman^ruass~meeting—"of~

In Overloaded Boat-Boat0 G-oes
Down With All
"PITTSBURG,. May 1*3— Twenty persons are missing, and.all of them are
believed to have been drowned, when
a gasoline launch sank in the middle
of   the   Ohio.-river, four miles below
; Pittsburg tonight. Of the "thirty occu-
* pants of the boat only' ten are known
to have escaped,- _     --
The Boat Was Swamped
••' All of the- men were employees of
the Pressed Steel Car,;'Co. at McKees-
port Rock Plant. The'men had been
working overtime and left'a few minutes lifter eight to cross tlie.river in
1 a gasoline launch. The boat, is said
to have been intended for not more
than twenty persons.
Albert Graham, the pilot of the boat
is said to have told one of the occupants that the boat was safe as he had
had twenty, in It last night, but when
the boat reached the middle of the ri-'
ver -which the -water is perhaps twenty
feet deep it sank. There was no explosion". The .boat simply sank beneath the weight, it had been bearing
and went to the bottom. . As it sank
itcasued a suction which took many
of the men down 'wltli it. Others attempted to swim ashore but were
chilled by the cold water and became
exhausted before reaching land. So
far as is known but ten of the men
survive.
shot a number of times.- He showed
how he stopped Tommy Burns and
how he proposed to fight Jim Jeffries.
He showed numerous poses and the
photographer was busy for an hour or
more'. n ■      7- ■
Then Mr. Johnston.went down- the
elevator and stood on -the crossing of
William street admiring himself and
waiting for his friend "who had been
delayed. He occupied much spaca
on the crossing and made no efforts
to move.
One of the stereptypers of the Journal came along and tried to-get by
him'. lii doing so he bumped against
him and the negro champion took,offence.
The stereotyper did not know the
champion. He only knew that this is
a white' man's country and he'talked
Iback.
The argument began to grow interesting when two husky Italian newsboys came along and chipped in. They
did not like negroes either and drew
no- color line.
• Johnson-made some ugly remarks to
one of the Italian boys 'and received a
blow . in the stomach that surprised
him. That young street urchin is not
a prize fighter but he has learned.to
take care of himself in emergencies,
and he hit hard and promptly. At
the same instant the other boyhanded
Mr. Johnson one in the jaw and in
staggering back the champion tripped
and fell backward.
A third newsie in the Newsboys
Home raised a window and dropped a
flower pot on the head of the champion which ciit an ugly gash above
his'eye.
The'two who were*with him on the
ground kicked him two or three times
and ran just as reinforcements in the
shape of the champion's friend who
had been detained upstairs arrived on
the scene. . „   '
Johnson left for Pittsburg that Highland Is-appearing in vaudeville the-.«
this week. But he is wearing a patch
of court plaster over one eye. Somewhere down on the Bast side Uicr-j .ire
two Italian boys and they do not know
that they \yhipped Jack Johnson, .the
great black heavyweight pugilist. —

PUSHING,  NV Y.   May  10—When,
court opened today John F. Mclntyre,
chief   counsel for Captain Peter C.
Hains Jr,  on  trial  for killing    William E. Annie, began his last plea to
the jury for his client. Mr. Mclntyre
said his  summing up.would  occupy
about four hours.     There is a possibility that the case may go to the
jury late to-day7but it Is more likely,,
that   Justice Garretson will   adjourn
after both sides have said their last
word to the jury and will deliver his
charge tomorrow morning., In opening bis plea Mr.. Mclntyre said:
'It was,the act'"of God that directed
Captain Hains and* when he. took the
life of the men who ruined his home
the meeting'between Annis and the
defendant was accidental. There was
no indention,to kill.,"
Taking up the question of Captain
Hain's sanity Mr. Mclntyre said: '
"The burden is now on the people
to convince you beyond reasonable
doubt that he was sane. The law does
not require us to convince you beyond
a reasonable doubt that he was Insane.   ' .
■ The State's Argument
"The' state intends to show that he
was In a normal state of,mind by a
few cursory observations abstracted
from a mass of matter, and even
though his actions may have.seemed
rational at times, medical science will
show that insane people often think
arid act rationally at times. Was it
a mental shock sufficient to unbalance
his mind when this unfortunate man
learned* of his wife's infatuation from
her own lips?" -
It was then that melancholia seated
herself, beside the throne of reason,
and" afterward taunted and tortured
his brain, accelerated his mind and
altered the emotions of,his heart."
Mr. Mclntyre criticized the state's
hypothetical question and ermarked
that the speech and conduct of the de-
:defeiidant=as-there"reiated=~wLere=taken
from unimportant incidents which
might have occurred to any man sane
or insane.1
"I do not deny'that this man had
lucid Intervals and rational moments
when he talked and cated like a normal man.. Many insane persons have
such periods of rationality," said Mr.
Mclntyre.   „
Seattle Hotel and  Resturant. Keepers
Pledge Themselves Not to Raise the

SEATTLE, May 11—Visitors at the
Alaska-Yukon Pacific exposition'which
opens at' Seattle on June 1 and closes
October 16 will be able to line to their
satisfaction at the city's leading cafes
and. restaurants at normal prices. To
leave no 'doubt as to the working out
of this commendable spirit on the
part of Seattle's caterers, they recently met and voted as a body an agreement binding .all resturant, cafe, grill
and hotel men to maintain the present
prices through the exposition time, and
no member „of the organization to
which the caterers belong will be allowed to' take advantage of the opportunity ,. to, reap additional profits
ag has been done, despite protests in
previous exposition cities. i
The action was taken after I. A.
Nadeau, director "general of the A. Y.
P. had addressed the cssembled restaurant men, showing them how the
increased crowds that would follow
reasonable charges. would not only
add to the credit of tho city and the
success of,the exposition but would
mean increase in business.
To the hired help must be given
much of the credit for the continuance
of low prices. Waiters,.cooks and
helpers of all kinds have entered into
an agreement that the present scale
of wages shall not be tampered with
during the fair.  *   -,.
•-Seattle will not only have a remarkable "exposition but will be able, to accommodate thc influx of visitors in a
way that will be a cause for lasting
satisfaction. Hotels are many and
reasonable ,and with fixing of normal
charges at the eating houses from
the most aristocratic' to humble lunch
"counter, tourists'may have no fear-of
not finding accommodation.

THE STRIKE SITUATION
'■One of the noticeable features in comiectien
ivilh tlie different reports published from time to
time in various papers of the district is the apparent lack of cohesion in the statements appearing
from day to day.
The Lethbridge Herald has had its letter factory
working overtime lately grinding out letters minus
signatures, the purport of the.majority appearing
fb be an effort to throw discredit on the officers
of district 18, aud to sow seeds of discord in the
ranks of the miners.
For instance we reprint the following from the
columns of a li.' C. cotcni: Lethbridge, May 11—
This week will in all probability, see the ehd*bf the.
coal miners'strike. ' The men are getting disgusted with thc condition of affairs. Most of them
are running short.of funds. The mine owners are
prepared to hold out.for some weeks, so it is ap-
r (t        ' C
parent that the end of the strike is near. '•
From the columns of the Lethbridge Herald is
taken tlie following: "The local miners, when asked
by the Herald as to the accuracy of^the report that
they were going to open negotiations with the local
company with a view to returning to work at once,
said there was no truth in it. They will hang out-
whether President Lewis gives them support or not.
They have funds in the local district to last for several weeks. "
If discontent does exist in District 18, it is slow
atshowing,itself in any tangible form at the proper
time and place. , At two large meetings held in
Coleman and Frank, every opportunity was.given
indirectly to ,the wealth and prosperity * of the entire community. Of recent years the farmers of
the west have been organizing and concentrating
their powers for the protection and advancement
of their own. best interests, and today their sanction or disapproval; is a.matter of supreme, moment
in government halls.
The • agitation, not new or ill-timed by any
means, has been begun with fresh impetus for the
government ownership of mines, or at least sufficient mines to prevent any recurrence' of the present intolerable position. .The governments of the
western provinces have not been slow to. realize
the seriousness of the'situation, and the government
of .Alberta intimated in no uncertain maimer, that
the government cotild control and operate coal
mines as successfully as theyo could manage their.
own telephone business.
From its very democratic nature the government of any of the western provinces would grant
fair working conditions and common justice to tha
employees of the'mines, who would be civil servants, not hirelings of grasping and greedy, corporations. . '        '
Shylock, as-we have him recorded in Shakespeare, was after his pound of flesh, and nothing
else would he consider. In the end, through, the
pursuit of his, damnable and unalterable purpose,
he called down upon his head consequences more
dire than he had sought to inflict upon his happless
victim. v '
We are not prophets, nor yet the sons of prophets, but the present attitude of the operators who
still cling to,the Western Operators Association,
and follow at their beck aiid call, must appear, to
the careful student/of things past and present, as
the veritable handwriting on the wall.
COMMUNICATION
Idr~any^miner, d"issatisfied.~with~conditions orTh?
actions of the officers, not only to state his grievances, but to assume control of the meeting in

didthe offer find a taker.. .;;    ■ „ ■;,
The coal operators perhaps don't realize that
in the present,struggle against an agreement, fair
enough for the largest concern in the Pass, the
Crow's Nest Puss Coal Company, they are uncovering 'for themselves a. veritable pitfall surrounded
with most disastrous results to their, corporate interests. The farmers of the prairie are perhaps
being hit. ns hard as any individual class through
the shortage of fuel. The.complete tie up of.-the
steam plowing and seeding-outfits, which lipve
come to lie part and parcel of present day agriculture in the west, is not a matter to be slightly or
easily set aside, and constitutes a .serious set hack

To the Editor District Ledger'--'.'.;
The editor of a western paper recently, made tlie- -statement "Let'.'' me
write the headlines over the dispatches
Ih the dally papers and I can-create
any"sort of public sentiment."...
In the main thisis true. The more
influential- class""don't take time to'
think, and hence don't reason for
themselves, but take their newspapers
as voicing- popular sentiment, and desiring to be on the popular side of everything, the accept * the headlines' as
a sort of abridged gospel. Ifot reading
a given artiole, they - couple their
"headline" Impression with what they
glean from the remarks of those who
have read it all-and who-are of the
same kidney "as themselves, and in this
way they become mere parrots. They
have no justiflcable opinions, and are
always ready to praise or condemn
whatever is popular in their clique.
.Serious social problems'they have
no, use for, human sympathy is unknown to them save through the headlines: ' *•-'-'       * ■:'       , ,'-';.'*.'.'•-
Henry George once said: "Most people don't think at all.",; - I thought it
rather an extravagant statement, "but
when I hear'the man'of average'Intellf*
gence complaining of low wages I not
drily.conclude that such a man doesn't
think." but that he has nothirig^to think
with—more's the pity.     •>. y"    ' *.-

7 HOSMER, B.-C. May 9—One hund-
dried and fifty men have been put to
work to build the new'station and
freight sheds and fix the grade at
Hosmer.
NOTES AND COMMENT
There are pictures in the' papers of "TaftJs
Workshop," that will make those who use a workshop to work iii snort in scorn.' . A man.may do
some heavy work lying back in a morris, chair, with
his feet on afoot rest, but you can't makefile man
who labors believe it.
Editorially the'Calgary'Albertan saysr
"The Pass miners,   remembering   that   Frank
Sherman lias always' stood' loyally by them,   will
stand by him when it comes to the worst. "
That is just what we have been saying, and the
sneaks that were trying, to turn the.men against
him by'letter writing are. wallowing in their own
dirty tricks. ,
Now1 that the* eity has been authorized by the citizens ■ to purchase and, establish the' water works
system they "shbuIcTIose no fime~iiTrunnThY'WtW
through the recreation grounds and down the annex. The residents in. the recreation grounds (and
they are many) were promised a pipeline, and.it
is,an.absolute necessity-:in order to preserve health
during the coming/hot weather period;, There-is
at present only ono well, to ..supply the' Ropulacc of
that part pf the city and the"public health demands
water for sanitation." Several good houses would
be erected there at once if the,city,woult'l run the
valor to that part, Another matter that has been
in the balance for a long time is the grading of .the
hill, ,,' The city engineer surveyed the grade and
it was to have been finished long ago. Now people
nro vising it for a dumping ground and unless the
city gets busy and makes it nn accessible grade the
growth of thc aiine.x and the recreation ground
property will be stultified.

*The sequel to a rowdy kick up on the
train Saturday night, took place before
Magistrate Booth on Monday when two
Coal Creekltcs were brought up charg
ed, with having been drunk and creating a disturbance which Interfered with
the comfort of passengers on the last
train from Fernie on the date mentioned-, " Constable Varlow related that he
was on the same train but not on > tlie
same coach as the defendants. He received complaints and on going through
and requesting them to desist one" of
them, made use of-obscene and foul
language. Many women were ln the
coach. Ho arrested this defendant who
offered such fierce -resistance' that he
was compelled to call'for assistance. He
eventually secured him by putting on
the handcuffs and on arrival at' Coal
Creek he locked him up. - The other
defendant was advised to go quietly
away, but disregarded this and persisted ln using obscene language.-He''also
locked him up. Both defendants pleaded guilty and said thoy were drunk or
lt, would not' haye occurred'. '.The magistrate very hesitatingly took this view
and said they-could go-on. each paying
a fine,of $5 and costs.   .-"' ,
We, iiate to see any man In trouble,
and we are always inclined to make
reasonable allowances but whatever the
cost and no matter whom we' offend,
our women and children must be protected from" the ruffianism and foul
and dirty oaths and expressions which
are becoming quite too common a feature, not only on the train but almost
in every part of the camp. It is a certainty' that if Magistrate „ Booth's
Idea, that the-case before him would
serve as an example to "others, proves
to ;be wrong, well we guess It would
come pretty stiff on any others charged ,'wlth a similar offence.

THE DISTRICT LEDGER, FERNIE,       B- C. MAY 15, 1909
POSTAL UNION
TIE-UP FRANCE
And Call General  Strike—Postal Service
Totally Demoralized—Masses Are ,
Greatly Angered
Paris, May. 11—After four hours of
exciting debate in the chamber of deputies today the discussion of the pos
tal situation went over to the 13th of
May.    '
The response of the postal employes
was quick and decisive. Within half
an hour the federal commission   had
. issued an order for a general strike
and railroad mail clerks walked out* in
a body. An hour, later a. meeting of
6000 postal employees at the Hippodrome took up tho gage of battle and
unanimously voted to strike. There
was no great enthusiasm shown, but
determination and, a resolution to
force the hand of the government were
apparent.
The government Is playing for time.
"Wc must not be, caught napping," was
the spirit of the meeting as expressed
by Paurol, a dismissed postman, and
one of the most active organizers of
the movement. During the debate in
the chamber, Messrs. Sembat and YVil-
Jim, socialists, defended the position
of the strikers, affirming their right
to organize themselves into a syndicate, the only' way of reducing their
grievances,-* and charging the government with failure to keep its promises
at the conclusion of the previous strike
and especially with regard to the retirement of M. Simyan, under secretary of posts and telegraphs.
' M. De Channell considered the crisis
very grave. He laid the responsibility
for the present .situation largely upon
"parliamentarism," which ho said was
working in a vicious circle and he considered that the only remedy, would
be the introduction of a real civil service whicli was based on merit, and
to end favoritism and the spoils system.
M.'Barthou, minister of public works,
insisted that neither he' nor the pre-
.mier hadt promised .Slmyan's dismissal. He produced the official journal as
proof of what he had said. The minister reaffirmed the government's unalterable opposition to concede the
right of state  employees to form a
-syndicate  as  there  was  no  analogy
-against stoppage of work and no guarantee of promotion and pension in old
age.
"It parliament asks us to revcrseour
-attitude,—continued~M Barlhoji.TlffiL
will retire and leave' others the abdication which would be a mortal blow
to the imprescribable rights that parliament holds from the nation and to
the essential, permanent vital interests of the'nation itself." '
■ Towards the close of the meetings
of thc federal commission the spectators, became more and more excited
in their denunciation of the government. A caricature of M. Clemen-
ceau was carried into the hall and
amid the hooting and jeers of the
crowd the premier was denounced,in
violent terms.
"You are fighting for liberty of opinion and liberty of association,' yelled Panron, "and you must not resume
work until you have obtained the right
to unite as a syndicate.'"
A permanent striko committee and
branch commissions were created and
delegates were despatched to the provinces to pursue an active propaganda
to make the striko complete.
Despatches received f/om a great
'many cities give sympathy and support, to the employees and to unions ia
general. The miners congress now in
session at lens, also promised aid.
The president of the commission announced that tomorrow not a letter
must leave Paris. M. Pauron, assured the meeting that they could
depend on M. Pataud,the leader of
the electricians to find a way to upset the wireless system. The meeting closed with the adoption of a report condemning the disloyalty of the
government and binding .all present
to remain on strike until full satisfaction had been given. The, general
opinion,of the fight is that the govern-
'ment with the aid-of the soldiers and
the co-operation of the commercial
bodies, would be enabled to maintain
a crippled service. The .main danger is
that violence may.be aroused on the
appearance of ths general federation
of labor.
The Paris chamber of commerce tonight sent out a letter to all chambers
of commerce in France with full instructions relative to ii scheme for a
better service which is to be carried
out in the event of the railroads failing, by means of-automobiles.
The officials of the various depart-
jn.ents.have already arranged for this.

Miirnilinn runner, who Jumped Into

rissey of Yonkers only, recently professional, running under American colors, collapsed early In the sixteenth
mile and had.to be carried off,
St. Yves' time '2.44.05, was almost
four minutes slower than the mark'
set by him In the Marathon Derby of
a month ago. The pace at which the
first ten miles were run was faster
tlitm has characterized events of a
similar nature of this kind, the first
flvo miles going in 27 minutes and 56
seconds nnd the ton miles In 50.02.
The race brought to the Polo ground
a crowd of about. 20,000 enthusiasts, a
great many, of whom were In their
seats ho'irs before tho time set for the
start. The weather was ideal. The
air had just enough crispness to make
the terrible strain of running as light
as possible.       c
Nevertheless tho heartbreaking pace
set for tho first ton miles soon told on
tho runners and man after man sank
to tho turf exhausted only to go on
again, spurred by trainers, tho shout
of spectators and tho lively music of
a band.
At the crack of tho starting pistol
Marsh took the lead, with St. Yves,
edging lilm strldo for strldo, tho littlo
Frenchman pattering on llko a steady
Shetland pony, never moro than a fow
feet behind tho Canadian.
Tho two procticnlly run together for
15 miles, for although St, Yves assumed tho role of pneo mnlcor In th • 4th

In the sixth mile St. Yves had killed
his man and Marsh began to fall hack
slowly at first by Inchon nnd thon hy
yards nnd then by oomploto laps.
First, 'flvnii.i-.-ri*,, then Apploby, running wllh long graceful strldo, pasned
him. For a whilo tho plucky Canadian fought ngnltmt Dorando pasnlng

One bleak winter morning a cold
looking individual walked into a small
cafe.
"Morning," he said cheerily, addressing himself to the white aproned
attendant behind .the'bar.
"Morning,", was the reply.
"How'd you1 like a sherry and egg
this morning?" continued the stranger. '    ,
"Well, now that does sound good
to me. Are—are you going to —
treat?"
"I'll, furnish the eggs* if you - will
contribute the sherry.
"Done," agreed the proprietor.  *   =---
"All right. I'll be back in a min*
ute," the frosted( one called over his
shoulder as he walked around to the
door. i
Into the street he made his way
and halted before a grocery store in
front, of which the clerk was sweeping tlie, steps.
"Morning," he said good natured-"
ly;'
"Morning," came the reply.   . "'*
"A little raw this morning," he pursued.
"Yep."
"How'd a sherry and egg go this
morning?" he asked rubbing some beat
into his hands.
"Best thing I've heard to-day," announced tho clerk. Interested.'
"Tell you what I'll do," the stranger
continued; "I'll furnish the sherry if
you'll furnish the eggs."
"Sure."    •
"All right; trot outathree eggs and
follow me."
And the stnrnger led the way back
to the cafe.
"Here's tho eggs," he announced to
the proprietor.
; "Here's the sherry," replied the proprietor, mixing the drinks..
"Here's how!" the three exclaimed
in unison and they drank the concoction and replaced the glasses on the
bar.
"By the way," said the proprietor to
the grocery clerk, ."you contributed the
eggs, didn't you?"
"Yep," said the clerk smacking bis
lips. '
"And I furnished the sherry didn't
I?"   '
"Yep."
"Well then, stranger where do you
come In?"     *     ' *-.
"Why, gentlemen," replied the stranger as he bowed his way out, "my position is easily explained. I'm the
promoter." '-",■'•

"Well, who

he cried.
then to duty.
Suddenly a young man of aristocratic
appearance rose from a table nt the
end of thi* room,, where he had been
•eated In company with a pretty and
aoaartly dressed girL.   A graceful gesture excused him to hia fair companion, arid he threaded his way deftly
between the jostling tables to where
Mistiteh sat.   He wore court dress and
b decoration.    Markart recognized ln
tbe  young -man   Baron
von  Hollbrandt,  junior
secretary of the German
legation in Slavna.
Hollbrandt bowed to
Mlstlteh, with whom he
was acquainted, then
bent over the giant's
burly back and whispered in his ear:   ,
"Take a friend's advice, captain." he said.
'Tvo been at tho palace,
and I. know the prince
had permission to withdraw at half past 0. He
was to return to Slavna
Come, go back. You've
had your 6*>roe."
"By the Lord. I'm obliged-to you!"
cried Mlstlteh. "Lads, we're obliged
to Baron von Hollbrandt! Could you
tell me the street he means to come hy ?
Because"—he rose to his feet agnin-
"we'll go and meet.blm!*'.
Half the hall heard him. and the
speech was 6oon passed on to any out
of hearing, A sparse cheer sputtered
here and there, but most were silent.
Rastatz gasped again, while Sterkoff
frowned and squinted Villainously.
Hollbrandt whispered once more, then
stood erect, shrugged his shoulders,
bowed and walked back to his pretty
friend. He sat down and squeezed her
hand ia apology.' The pair broke into
laughter a moment slater. Baron von
Hollbrandt felt that he, at least, bad
done his duty.
The three had drunk and drunk.
Rastatz was silly, Sterkoff vicious, the
giant Mlstlteh jovially anil cruelly reckless, exalted not only by liquor, but
with the sense of the part be played.
Suddenly from behind.the glass screen
rose a mighty roar:
"Long live Mistiteh! Down with tyrants!   Long live Captain Hercules!"
It was fuel to the flames. Mistiteh
drained his glass and hurled it on the
floor.
"Well, who follows me 7* he cried.
Half the men started to their feet
The other half pulled them down. Contending currents of feeling ran through

warning, to another instigation. They
seemed poised on the point of a great
decision. Yet what was it they were
deciding?   They could' not tell.   .
Markart suddenly forgot his caution.
He rushed to Mlstlteh, with his hands
out and ."For God'a saker loud on his
lips.
"Your cried Mistiteh. "By heaven,
•what elso does your general want?
What else does Matthias Stenovics
want?  Tell mo that!"
Amid a dead silence be went out, his
two henchmen after him. He and
Sterkoff walked firm and truo. Rastatz
lurched in hia gait. A thousand eyes
followed their exit, and from SOO
throats went up a long sigh of relief
that tbey were gone. But what had
thoy gono to do?1 The company decided
that lt was just as well tor them,
whether collectively or as individuals,
not to know too much about that Let
it. be hoped that tho cool air outoldo
would havo a sobering effect and send
thom homo to bed) Yot.from behind
tho glass screen thero soon arose again
a busy murmur of voices, like tho hum
of a bechlvo threatened with danger.
Outside, big Mlstlteh had crossed the
canal and como to tho cornor where tho
Street of tho Fountain opens on to'St.
Michael's squaro. "What say you to a
call at the Hotel do Paris, lads?" ho
•aid.
"Hlstr Sterkoff wblsporod. "Do you
hear that step coming up tho street
thero?"    .
Tho Illuminations burned still in the
■quaro and aont a path of light down
tlio narrow street, Tho throo stopped
•and turned their heads. Sterkoff point*
cd. Mlstlteh looked nnd Rmnckod liln
pondorous thigh,
the window sill. The room was dark,
for the path of. light from the illuminations, which made the roadway below
white, threw hardly a gleam on to its
somber walls, but Sophy, had no need
of a lamp and every need to save her
money. She sat in the gloom, busy in
.thought, the fresh evening air breathing soft and cool on her brow from the
open window. •, '     ■
Suddenly sbe raised her head. There
was a wild, quick volley of cheering.
It came from the Golden Lion, whose
lights across the. square a sideways
craning of her neck enabled her to see.
Then there was silence for a few minutes. Again the sound broke forth, and
with lt confused shoutings of a name
Rhe could not make out Yes—what
was it? Mlstltch--Mlstltcb! That wns
her flrst hearing of tho uaroe.
Silence fell again, nnd she sank back
Into her chair. "The lights, the stir, tho
revelry, were not for her, nor the cheers
nor the shouts. A moment of reaction
and lassitude came on her, a moment
when the. present, tho actual, lapped
her around with Its dim, muddy flood
of vulgar necessity and sordid needs.
With a sob, she bowed her head to meet
her hands—-u sob that moaned a famine of life, of light, of love. "Go back
to your scullery, Sophy Grouch!" What
voice had said that? She sprang to her
feet with fists clinched and whispered
to.the darkness, "No!"
In the street below Mistiteh slapped
his thlgn.
Sophy pushed her hair back from her
heated. forehead and looked out of
the window. To the right, some twenty
yards away and just at the end of the
street she saw the flgures of three
men. In the middle was one who
bulked like a young Falstaff-Falstaff
with his paunch not grown. He was
flanked by two lean fellows who looked
small beside him. She could not see
the faces plainly since the light from
the square was behind them. They,
seemed to be standing there and'looking past the sign of the Silver Cock
along the street
A measured, military footfall sounded on her left. Turning her head, she
saw a young man walking, with head
bent down and arms behind him. The
line of light struck full on him. He
was plain to see as by broadest day.
He wore a costume strange to her eyes
—a black sheepskin cap, a sheepskin
tunic, leather breeches and high unpolished boots—a rough, plain dress., Yet
a broad red ribbon crossed it and a
Btar glittered on the. breast The only
tweapon~*^sTrsBBTC^urveid^sciinitar.-
It  was  the  ancient costume of the
shall 'have no such plea at the court
martial," be said. "Gentlemen don't
waylay .one another in * the. streets.
Stand aside!**
Mistiteh laughed, and in an Instant
the prince sprang at him. Sophy heard
the blades meet Strong as death was
the fascination for her eyes—aye, for
her ears, too, for she heard tbe quick
moving feet and the quicker breathing
of a mortal combat But she would not
look—she tried not even tb listen. Her
eyes were for a man.she could not see,
her ears for a man she could not hear.
She remembered the lean fellow hidden in the porch, straight nnder her
window. She dared not call to warn
the prince of him. A turn of the head,
a moment of Inattention, would cost
either combatant his life. She took the
man ln the porch for her own adversary, his undoing for her share in the
fight
Very cautiously, making no sound,
she took the heavy lamp—the massive
bronze figure of the girl—raised it
painfully in both her hands and poised
lt halfway over the window sill. Then
she turned her eyes down again to
watch the mouth of the porcb. Her
rat was in that hole! Yet suddenly the
prince came into her view. He circled
halfway around Mlstlteh, then sank on
one knee. She heard him guard tbe
captain's lunges with lightning quick
movements of his nimble sclmlter. lie
was trying tbe old trick they had practiced for hundreds of years at Volscnl
--to follow his parry with an upward
ripping stroke nnder the adversary's
sword, to strike the 'Inner side of hl3
forearm and cut the tendons of the
wrist uThIs trick big Captain Mistiteh.
a man of the plains, did not know.
A jangle—a slither—a bellow of pain.
of rage!    The prince   had  mnile  his
stroke; the hill men of Volsenl were
justified of their pupil.    Mistltch's big
sword clattered on the (lags.' Facing
his enemy, with
his back to the
porch, the prince
crouched   motionless on  his
knee,    but    it
was   death   to
Mlstlteh to try
to   reach   the
sword with his
n n ma Im e d
.hand.
it was Sophy's
minute.     The
.message    that
had   come   ran
fierce    through
all   her   veins.
Straining to the
weight,,    she
raised   the   figure in ber hands
and leaned out
of the window.
Yes, a lean hand, with a long knife, a
narrow head, a'spare, long'back crept
out of  the darkness  of  the porch-
crept silently. .The body drew itself
together for a fatal spring on the unconscious prince for a fatal thrust   It
,would be death-and to Mistiteh salva-'
tion torn from tbe jaws of ruin.
"Surrender   yourself.   Captain   Mistiteh," said the prince..

Bhop stood far back
within a black and an*
dent porch, Behind tho
shop were o couple of
rooms where Mi-yersteln
and his wife lived;
o lin v o It, one large
room, with a window
which Jutted fur out
over the narrow street.
In this room, which was
reached by a tw-patate
door In the left side of
Umi porch uihI u cruxy dlK.it uf a down
••rinding stairs, lived Sophy.
Dy the window she sat on the night

tbe heavy figure of a girl carrying a
lamp-a tpeclmcn of ber landlord'* am-

Ol/ thr wta-

int.
bailiff of Volsenl, the head of that clan
of shepherds who pastured their .flocks
on tho uplnnds.   Thc Prince of Slavna
held the venerable office and had been
to court In the dress appropriate to lt
He had refused to use his carriage,
sending his aids-de-camp homo In It,
and walked now through the streets of
tbe city which he had in charge.   It
was constantly his habit thus to walk.
His friends praised his vigilance; bis
foes reviled bis prowling, spying tricks.
Sophy did not know tho dress, but
the face she knew.   It had been but
lately beforo her dreaming.eyes.   She
had seen lt in thc flesh tbat morning
from tho terrace of the Hotel de Paris.
Tho threo came on from her right,
one of tho. lean men  banging back,
lurking a littlo behind.   Tbey wero under her window now.   Tho prince was
but a few yards away.   Suddenly he
looked up, with n start—ho bad becomo
aware of their approach.   But beforo
bo saw them the three had melted to
ono.  With a shrill cry of consternation
—of uneasy courage oozing out—Rnu-
tatz turned and fled bnck to tho square,
heading at bis top speed for the Golden
Lion.   Iu tho eud he wits unequal to
tho encounter.  Storkoff, too, disappear*
ed, but Sophy know the meaning of
that.   Ho hnd slipped into tho shelter
of tho porch.   Her faculties were alert
now.    Sho  would  not  forget  whore
Sterkoff was!   Mist Itch stood nlono In
tho center of tho narrow street, his
bugo framo barely leaving room for n
man to pass on cither side.
For a moment tho prlnco stood still,
looking at tho giant Then ho stepped
briBkly forward, and Sophy heard his
clear, Inclulve tones cut tho air;'
"What extraordinary omorgoncy has
compelled you to disobey my orders.
Captain Mlstlteh?"
"I wanted a breath of fresh air," MIh*
titch answored in an oasy, Insolent
tone.
Tho prlnco looked again, Ilo seemed
oven more disgusted thnn angry now,
Ilo thought Mlstlteh drunk-moro
druulc than In truth ho wan.
"Return to barracks at onco nnd report yourself under stringent nrrost. 1

"And not tonight, Scrglun Gtefnno*

tho grunt hall of thc Golden Lion,
"Tomorrow wo shnll both ho cooler."
Ho wan almost up to Mint Itch now,
"Stand out of my way, sirl"
Mlstlteh did not budgo. "Tboro'u

side the porch. .
"I surrender, sir." he said.
"Then walk before me to th© barracks."    Mistiteh did'not turn.    "At
once, sir!"
"Nowr- Mistiteh roared. .
The crouching .figure  sprang  and,
with a hideous cry. fell stricken od
the flags.   Just below the neck, full on
tbe spine, bad crashed tbe virgin with
the lamp.   Sterkoff lay very still save
that bis fingers scratched tho flags.
Turning, thc prince saw a bronze figure at bis feet—a bronze figure holding
a broken lamp.   Looking up, he saw
dimly a woman's white face at a window.
Then the street was on a sudden full
of men. Rastatz had burst Into tho
Golden Lion, all undone—nerves, courage, almost senses gono. lie could
stammer no moro than, "They'll light."
nnd could not sny who. But be bad
gono out with Mistitch-and whom had
they gono to meet?
A dofcen oflicers were around him in
an instant crying: "Where? Where?"
He broke Into frightened sobs, hiding
his face in his bunds.. It was Mas von
Hollbrandt who made blm speak. For*
gottlng his pretty friend, he sprang in
among thc oflicers, caught Rastatz by
tbo throat and put a revolver to his
head. "Where? In ten second**, whero?"
Terror beat terror. "Tho Street of tho
Fountain—by tho Silver Cock!" tho cur
stammered and foil to his bluhboting
again.
Tho dozen oflicers and more wero
across the square almost beforo bo bad
flrilshod. Max von Hollbrandt, wltb
half the now lesueued company In the
Inn, was hot on their heels.
