CHAPTER IV.
The man who had come so opportunely to Christine's assistance, and
who now walked by her side, listening to her story, was not yet onc-
and-twenty, though he lacked only a
few months of that ape. Yet ho was
a strong s*ind well-developed man, an
had been amply evident from ths
manner in which he had disposed of
tho ruffian upon whom his hand had
fallen. Of medium height; possessing
a well-proportioned and firmly knit
frame; a face of genial, winning
beauty; a brow broad and full; a
grandly shaped head, with clustering
lock's of brown hair, llis eyes were
of a bright, lustrous gray, • verging
upon tho azure tint; and thero was a
dimple in his handsome chin which
seemed a finishing touch to the cheerful face. His nnme wns Paul Wnv-
brook, and he was very near the
close of his last year In college. His
father was Nathan 'Waybrook, a
wsBttlthy merchant of Boston—wealthy
and aristocratic— _j*jhpse residence
was near Brookside ▼ ottoge.
Paul and Christine had known
each other from early childhood. Paul
had been one of tho first with whom
the foundling had formed a friendship outside of the cottage; and yet,
their associations had not been always intimate. Rachel St. Clair
had been wary that her darling protegee should not cultivate friendships to her harm; and the aristocratic merchant, aware of lhe mystery of Christine's origin, hnd discountenanced his son's association
with her. Another thing, perhaps
had. of late, influenced Madame Rachel in repelling the too familiar
friendship of tho youth. Since entering" college, he had evinced a waywardness and a wildness of disposi-
sitlon which had more than once
threatened cause of expulsion, and
which might have worked to that
serious end had it not been that his
lessons were nearly perfect, his treatment of his tutors respectful, and his
general character manly and frank;
and also, his father's influence was
in his favor.
" 1 think you have occasion for
pride rather than alarm," said a
1 farvar.d professor, with whom Mr.
Wuylnook was discussing his son's
proclivity to mischief, "your son Is
frank und bold. He conceals nothing.
What he does he does openly and
above board. A mean or cowardly
act has never been traced to bis
hands, and I know he would scorn a
dishonest act. If I am not entirely
wrong in my Judgment, he will graduate with honor, and what now
seems to be defects in youth will become good points in manhood. If vou
would save him to his best cskite
you must trust him. Give him your
confidence, and sock rather to elevate bis native instincts than to
crush them."
"But," urged the parent, "he must
be taught obedience."
The professor shrugged his shoulders.
"You should know your own son,
Mr. Waybrook. I have known him
for more than three years, and, during that time, I have been called upon to set him to disagreeable tasks,
and yet he never disobeyed me. I
have led him where I never could
have driven him. Ho will yield to
love nnd reason; but—pardon me for
saying it—1 fear that he will never
yield to an authority that trenches
upon his  manly rights."
Tho merchant closed his hand with
a hard gripe. Thc expression of his
face was unyielding; and the professor said to himself, as he left the
counting-house, that if ever thoso
two come into serious conflict, there
would be no concession.
Yet Paul and Christine had often
met, and Rachel, when she found that
the companionship gave joy to her
darling, had not objected to his visiting the cottuge. For this purpose
Paul had come over on tho present
evening, and not finding Christine in.
he had gone off in search of her, ami
had found her, as we have seen.
"What can it mean?" said he, when
Christine had told how thc man had
como upon her.
But she could not imagine. .She hod
never seen the wretch before, nor had
she ever before beon molested while
walking upon the grounds.
"Oh, Paul! I am so glad you
came!" And she looked up into his
face with such a heavenly glow of
confiding trust und affection, that he
Instinctively stopped and drew her to
his bosom.
"Christine," he cried, the speech
bursting forth as though long since
formed,and long pent up, "thero ne*-
er can be a more fitting time than
this, for the opening of my heart's
holiest treasure to her who has long
possessed lt. Christine, you know I
loveyoul Will you not say to me
that I am loved in return?"
She looked up with a sweet smile,
and gave him both her hands.
"Paul," she snid, with noble frankness, "my heart's warmost and most
devoted lovo Is your—has been yours
for a long, long time. I should be
false to you and false to myself, wero
I to deny lt, or, refuse to acknowledge
it."
"Blessed girl I"
"And,   Paul,   I ask no obher love
but yours—no other love which man
stan give to woman."
"My own anr»el!"
He took her more closely to his
bosom, and their, lips met In a warm
impassioned kiss—the seal of a love
deep, pure,  true and holy.
And  then    Christine gently    dlscn-
gsrtgid  herself, and  thro!'".:!)  the gulh- I
ering gloom    he  could   see  thut    sho'
was sober and earnest
"Paul," she said, raising her hand
ns though it were a partition between them, "let us rest with this
knowledge until we know that our
love will be countenanced by those
who have a right to share in our care
and confidence."
"Ho you think Madame I'nchcl
would object?" Paul asked quickly
"My good mother will surely stmlv
my happiness; aid I think, I'siiil. her
first query would be concerning the
disposition of your father."
"My father!" repeated the youth,
wilh a start.
"He is a staern man, Paul, and may
not fancy your marrying a poor,
nameless foundling."
"Hush, darling! He dares not
trifle with my heart. He will not.
I will s*>cak to him this very night,
and I will havo his answer before 1
return to Cambridge."
•'And until then, Paul, let us be
friends as we have been."
"With promise of bliss in the future," ho added, rapturously.
"Su<*h a promise will make me
very happy, Paul."
"Dlws you, dearest!"
Another kiss, und they entered upon the graveled walk before the dwcl-
ing, and met Madame Rachel upon
the piazza- She wondered why her
darling was out in the evening dew
with so slight a covering, and there-
. upon Christine told her of the startling adventure by tho brookside, and
how Paul had rescued hor.
Rachel St. Clair was seriously
alarmed. She led tho way to the
sitting-room, where she heard the
story over again, and where she asked many questions; but neither (Christine nor I'aul could give her further
information.
When Paul had taken his leave, and
Christine had gone out to look to
matters in tho kitchen, Rachel sat
alone, and reflected upon what she
had heard. She was impressed with
a fear that harm hung over the Way
of her darling. She had sought, by
every means in her power, to reach a
Solution of the mystery of Christine's
Parentage. Her Boston lawyer, Adam
Halford, had had the matter in
charge for years: but not a ray of
light had been shed upon it. During
tha' first year of tho foundling's residence at the cottage, old Tom had
soon a woman hovering near. The last
time ho had seen her was late in the
summer, or early autumn, near the
close of a very pleasant day. At the
time, Christine, then a gles'soinc
child, had been playing upon the
lawn, and the woman had entered at
the gate and ensconced herself beneath a linden, whence she watched
the littlo one with eager interest.
Tom summoned his mistress, but before sho came the strange intruder
had gone. Tom described her as a
woman well advanced in life—sixty
at loast—poorly but neatly drefscd;
with a face dark and sad, though by
no means evil; and he was sure that
she had regarded the child with an
expression of pleasure, llachcl listened and questioned and was sure that
it was the same woman who luul
peered in at the window upon her.
All this had passed years before,
and the strange woman had not been
seen from that dny to this.
And now, queried Rachel', had the
ruffian of the brookside any connection with the woman of the other
years? Sho could not think so. In
short, she knew not what to think,
and while sho was bothering her
brain over tho matter, Christine
came in nnd kissed her, nnd snt down
at the pianoforte, and sung for her,
and thus, for the time, dissipated
the cloud.
Meantime, Taul Waybrook had repaired to his own house, and sought
his  father.
The Waybrook mansion was one of
tlie finest in the suburbs. The owner
sailed it "Elmslde Hall." He hnd
Knglish tastes, and in his dwelling
bad copied the mansion of a friend
in thc mother country. As his ancestors had left hlm no coat of arms,
ho caused the initials of his name to
be wrought into a labyrinthic. monogram, which was em-blazoned in overv
possible place whero a proper regard
for artistic effect would suffer it to
appear.
Nathan Waybrook was a man of
fifty, or thereabouts; a proud and
handsome man—proud of himself and
proud of his surroundings, and, moro
thun all, proud of his success in life.
In democratic America, he could
purchase no patent of nobility—not
even tho tltlo of knighthood. "Sir
Nathan" had a grand sound, but the
noto was beyond his reach. At length
however, a happy Idea struck him.
He offered himself to his friends as a
candidato for the Stato Senate. Hie
friends drew upon him for twenty
thousand dollars. He honored the
draft, and waa duly nominated by a
legal caucus of the dominant party,
Which nomination was equivalent to
an elect ion. And thus he gained a
grand title, and became thenceforth
"The Honorable Nathan Waybrook."
Mr. Waybrook; was in his library,
engaged in the examination of a ro-
port of sub's of stock, when his son
onto red. He luisl down the paper and
looked up.
"Well, Paul, I suppose you are ofl
for college on the morrow?"
"Yes, father; but before I go 1
havo a matter of Importance in mind,
which I wish to present to you."
Thero was a s'lght tremulousness
in tho youth's voioe, but his faco was
clear and his lip firm. Only his heart
gave throbbing to his speech. He sat
down, and his fat hor wheeled about
in his loiohing-ihair and regarded
him earnestly.
"1 wish to speak to you," pursued
Paul, In answer to a permissive nod,
"of  Christine   St.    Clair.      I     ahall
very shortly leave college und go into the profession which I um to follow. 1 have chosen to-day the partner who is to share with mo all tho
joys and cares of life. She and I
understand each other, and are prepared for thoso mutual trusts and
concessions which are necessary to
happiness."
"Upon my soul, young man, you
area philosopher!"
There wae a touch of derision in
the merchant's tone, nnd there was
a curl of displeasure about his finely
cut lips; but when ho saw how sternly sedate and respectful his son was,
and how bright and lertaln was tho
light of the deep gray eyes, he unbent
from the Indignant mood which had
at first possessed him. He was a
man of business, and in the transaction of business he used but few
words. His "No" was "No," and
his "Yes" was "Yes." In the .Senate his longest speech had been
"Yea" and "Nay." He was not an
eloquent man—not gifted with great
flow of language—but no man lived
who could more surely bend language
to the clear and comprehensive exposition of his purpose.
The Hon. Nabhnn Waybrook folded
up his paper and laid it upon the
table; then he removed his gold-bowed spectacles and laid them by its
side, and then ho leaned back and
folded his arms, and regarded his son
with a calm, dignified scrutiny.
"Paul, tho girl of whom you have
spoken is not my choice. My position
in society is an exalted one. I wish
you to occupy an oxaltcd position. I
havo friends high in station and power, from whose families I would prefer that you should select a wife-
Stop. Do not Interrupt me. I know
your weakness. You have inherited
it from your mother. She came from
the lower walks in life, and I could
never instill into her inind a spirit
of pride fit to adorn the station to
which I had raised her."
Paul's face flushed, and his heart
beat quickly. He remembered that
mother—long since at rest from
earthly toll—a mild, faithful, loving
woman, whose highest source of happiness had been the happiness of
those dependent upon her. He remembered tho pure and holy lessons
that mother had taught him; and
he said to himself that all of the
true and generous aspiration that
stirred and uplifted his soul he had
gained from his blessed mother. And
one other thing Paul could not forget: He could not forget that his
father, though of nn aristocratic
family, so far as pretensions were
concerned, had nevertheless been poor
in youth, and that in marrying tho
swoet girl who became his wife ho
married a fortune. She had been of
humble extraction, but a wealthy
bachelor uncle had left her a storo
of gold, which gold had been sullicient to bring the worship of Nathan
Waybrook to its shrine.
However, Paul idt his tongue nnd
held his peace, and his father continued:
"Were 1 to select for you. Paul. I
should select wilh a higher aim. But
you have chosen to anticipate me.
Have you spoken to the girl?"
"I havo."
"You have told her that you love
her?"
"I have."
"And she has confessed a reciprocal
love?"
The cold sneer which seemed to
give color to these interrogatories
cut Paul to thc quick, and made him
angry;  but he held his temper.
"She has confessed that she loves
me, sir, and that she's willing to become my wife when those who have
the right to udvise us shall consent."
"In which latter respect she has
shown her discretion."
Mr. Waybrook thus spoke, and then
arose and walked to the window.
When he came back, he said to his
son:
"You return to Cambridge to-morrow?"
"Yes, sir," was the son's reply.
"I will give you an answer before
you go.    That will do."
CHAPTER V,
Paul understood the hint conveyed
in his father's words, and without
further remark withdrew from the
library.
Nathan Waybrook reflected for a
season with his head resting upon
his hand. Then he arose, and reflected pacing to and fro. At length
he stopped and looked at his watch.
It was not yet late. He went into
the hall and put on his hat, and
then went out and walked to the
Brookside Cottage. He found Madame Rachel and Christine together
in the sitting-room, but the latter
withdrew as he entered.
The woman, who had heard Christine's story, knew the business of
her visitor. .She studied his face and
his bearing as ho sat down. Waybrook, when ho met thc keen, self-
possessed glance of tho hostess, felt
sure that he was understood, and
that preliminaries would be needless.
Accordingly, ho opened his business
at once.
"I have promised," he said, in
conclusion, "to give my son an answer to-morrow."
"Mr. maybrook," returned Rachel,
With dignity, "I have considered this
matter seriously, and am only anxious for the happiness and welfare of
my precious ward. You know her
well. You have seen her outgoings
and Incomings from childhood to
presont. What you see her In hor
best mood she Is ulways. She is a
treasure, and a blessing to me, and
ehe will be the Baine to the man
who wins her for a wife, if ho l.o
true and loyal."
"I am willing to admit all that,"
said Waybrook; "and now, let us
come to another point. Will Christine inherit yeur propeity?"
The face ef the woman flushed, and
her dark eyes flashed.
"I am a man of business, and of
few words," explained tho visitor,
when he marked the effect of his
abrupt question. "There Is no need
of beating around tho bush when the
matter Is plain before us."
"Boes gour son Join you ln this investigation?" asked Rachel.
"No," said Waybrook. "He Is
young and headstrong. His only
weakness., inherited from his mother,     is lack of that pride and fore-
sip lit which nre so essential to hon-
orablu success and station in life. I
am frank, you seo."
The woman's lips curled and her
countenance speedily brightened.
"Ood forbid," she said, "that I
should mako thc hand of the sweet
child a thing of barter. But I tell
you, Mr. Waybrook," and her oyos
flamed with a proud and defiant light
as she spoke, "that Christine St.
Clair, If sho lives, shall be able to
outweigh your gold, pile it as high
upon your banker's scales as yver
you canl    Would you ask moro?"
Tho honorable gentleman hud
gained the information ho desired,
and with gracious thanks ho retired.
On the following morning, Paul
was Informed by his father that thero
was no objection to his paying his
addresses to Christine St. Clair. He
had started for the Brookside Cot-
tago to share his joy with the girl,
when he observed a crowd of men
and boys collected near the railroad,
and an impulse drew him to the spot.
Tho body of a man had been found ,
in a gully close by the track, stark   JJan?' „
of the new clerk.
"I   more than   liko   him," replied
Halford.   "1 doubt if I could lind his
equal for my service, and 1 am Confident I could not lind his s"'enor.
"And his Dame is 'Hugo?'
"Caspar Hugo."
"Have .vou asked him concerning
this dead man?"
"Yes. Ile went with mo to the
inquest. But ho I new nothing of the
trump. Tho coincidence struck him,
as it did me, OS being peculiar; and
ho seemed quito nottled with the
thought that he should havo found
his family name belonging to such a
rascal. However, that matters not.
The rascal is out of the way, and I
think you havo nothing to fear further. Ho was but a brute of passage,
and his race is run."
Madame thanked tho lawyer for his
kindness, and pressed uik.n him
another glass of wine. Tho glasses
were small, and the wine was of tho
puro fruit of the vine."
"I   think,"    said   Halford,    us he
stood in tho hall, with his hat in his

The engineer of the late inward
bound freight-train from Providence
was present, and he suid that at that
spot, on the previous night, a man
had attempted to cross the track beforo his ongino. He had not seen
him until fairly in his way, and had
passed on, thinking that the man
hud crossed in safety. Paul Waybrook looked upon tho broken corpso
—looked upon the cold, dark faco —
and know it for tho man from whom
he hnd rescued Christine on tho previous evening.
Odicers came ' and examined tho
body, and called for some one to
Identify it. But none present could
do so. The pockets of the deceased
were searched, and upon the inside
of a morocco wallet, and upon one
or two papers, a name was written
and that name was "Adolphe Hugo."
CHAPTER VI.
Madame Rachel, when she had
heard from Paul the story of the
dead man, sent for her lawyer and)
desired him to attend the inquest,
and. if possible, to learn something
of the antecedents of the deceased.
This lawyer, as I have already stated, was Adam Halford, one of tho
most reliable and honorable attorneys of Boston. He was not gifted
us a pleader, and he made no pretensions to rank In cases where eloquent speeches  were to  be made to
business ^	
happen. In case of accident to myself, it might be well that ho should
understand such matters as require
professional oversight."
Rachel St. flair was willing to
trust entirely in her lawyer's long**
triod judgment and experience. He
thought best.
Adam Halford onco moro sought to
impross upon his client's mind that i
she need borrow no further uneasi- |
ness from the circumstance he had
been called to investigate, and then
ho'took his leave. When he hnd gone,
Madame Rachel railed Christine, and
informed her of tho result.
The girl was not Inclined to borrow unnecessary trouble. She was
too happy in the knowlodge of another event which had transpired dose
upon tho heels of the adventure by
the brookside. She was allowed to
love Paul Waybrook, and In the light
of this great blessing all other events
of life assumed a roseate hue nnd
warmth. She was joyssiis nnd buoyant, and dreamed not that evil could
lurk in a world which hud grown so
fair and beautiful. But ovil was on
the wing, nevertheless.
Within a week from that time, Rachel St. Clair was seized with an
epileptic fit, und when she hud recovered from it, she found herself weak
and prostrate. Tho physician s«w no
present cause of alarm, but he ndvis-
swl his patient that sho should be
very careful    of hor    diet,    nnd    seek
juries.    His province was in the caro'rest.   Tie gave her to understand that

titles,     in  the  preparation   of  deeds
and wills, and in tho general supervision    of the estates of his clients.

Imagination; he had little or no

once armed with facts, any man
could overcome him with other weapons. Because he himself was hon-

Mr. Halford attended the inquest,
and instituted such inquiries as seem*
ed expedient to him, but ho leurnod
nothing that he deemed of import- '
ance. He went to Murium.. Rachel
with the result of his investigations. ;
"I find nothing," ho said, "upon
which I can hinge a suspicion, Do
the circumstances I huvo related afford to you any clue?"
Rachel   St. Clair  shook  hor  head. |
She said   that she hod   never heard
the man's name   before,   nnd    could j
conceive of no reason for the ruffian-
ly attack, save the impulse of .brut-
ishness.
"I never knew but one man of the
name," said the lawyer, "and," he !
added, with a smile, "the circum- I
■stance affords quite a coincidence, f
have not looked into the directory to
•assure myself upon tho point, but I
think the only man of tho name of

"How?" uttered Rachel, with in-'
terest. "I did not know that you !
had such a helper." ;
"He ia a clerk," explained Halford, I
"who has but recently entered    upon :
the service.     He is a young man   of'
eight-and-tweeity,     or     thereabouts, ,
from the Wost.   Ho applied to me  a
month ago for a situation  as   clerk, i
bringing very high   recommendations

Christine had scarcely thought of
this, and the blow seemed fsir iho
moment to crush her with its horror.
The physician tried to cheer her, Her
kind protector might bo with her yet
for months.
"Let it be your study." ho said,
ere ho departed, "to make her as
comfortable and as happy as you
can. Cheerfulness of spirit is the
very best modiiinc she can take."
Under the influence of gentle restoratives and thu gentler ministrations of Christine. Rachel was on
the following day able to sit up, und I
she professed to feel quite like herself
■again. She marked tho sbuilows upon her darling's face, nnd, drawing
tho sunny head upon her bosom, she
said:
"1)0 not grieve, Christine. We have
nothing to fear—wo have no occasion
for alarm."
She kisssd the fair brow, ami presently added:
"The event is in the hands of God.
His will be dono! What to you may
soem the worst, may be the best for
me. 1 am old, und ni'ar my journey's end; you are young, and your
journoy Is just commenced. If I ran
SOS you happily fixed in life, I can
pass over tho rjver without a regret.
But for you, mv darling, theso last
years of my life would have been
heavy anil sad. You have made them
bright and blesses!. Let that thought
givp you  romfort."
Christine could not command speech
for reply. Bhe could only cling
around her guardian's nock, and kiss
und bless her.

her head, "my mind ls falling, as

ecrors in diet, Insufliciency of foosl or
failure of the digestive organs to
properly perform their work arc
among the iuoet usual causes of disease.
Once the system is weak, run dowu
or exhausted tho natural process of
recount rus.tio!i is tediously slow, usually slower than the wnslin-; pro-
cees, and tho end can only be physical bankruptcy and collapse.
It ls just at this point lhat Dr.
Chase's Nerve Food proves its wonderful power as an assistant to nature. This great food euro contains
la condensed pill form the very elements required by naturo to revitalise and build up tho system. These
immediately enter the blood stream,
and through the medium of the circulation of the blood and the nervous system carry strength and vigor
to each and every organ of tho body.

" For some months past I found
myself growing very nervoua, nnd
gradually becoming a victim of
sleeplessness and subject to frequent
attacks of nervous h.adnche. About
six nveeks ago I began using Dr.
Chase's Nerve Food and cannot
speak too highly of this medicine. I
can sleep well now, the headache*
have entirely disappeared, and I b**>

been much improved by the use of
this treatment."

Sir Lola •( Beef.
Though tlie truth of the story that
King James I. of England once knighted a loin of beef is disputed, the house
ln which the ceremony ls said to have

In these duys of fast motoring and
high railway speeds it ls Interesting to
rt'sull that lt was ln July, 1820, some
llttlflt* time before George Stephenson
had solved the problem of steam transport, that Sir Ooldsworthy Gurncy
mude his famous Journey ln a "steam
carriage" frem London to Bath and
back. Gurney was a surgeon ln Mnry-
lebone, greatly given to the working
out ot inventions In his spare time, and
It took him some years to cxnuplete his
first "motor" ln his back yard ln Albany street ln London. Ho accomplished tho Journey to aud from Bath at the
rate of dftceu miles nn hour, and there
wus only oue disturbing incident, when
a crowd assembled at Melksham set
upon the machine and, having burned
their fingerR, Uirew stones und seriously wouuded the stoker. This Gurney
journey stands as the Urst example of
locomotion by steam ln Hngland.

Saturday was a busy day among
the Conservatives of tin* province, ean
didates being chosen in a majority of
tbe constituenoies. 9on. Robt. Green
was nominated ia Kaslo, John Houston in Nelson, ami Harry Wright in
Ymir- all thn*.' winners.
In supporting the Conservative candidate, Win. Hunter, electors should
remember lhat they are voting for the
representative of the government.

Mining will corns? in for great attention by reason of the gigantic in vestment of the Rockefeller-Gould syudi-
eato iu the silver-lead mines of the
Coeur d'Alenes. It demontrates the
faith of these magnates in mining as
a profitable field for invusting llirir
money, and many small fry will Beak
to follow their example. British Columbia is vitally interested in the
movement of the,s« New Yorkers,
partly because the scene of their investment is contiguous to tlu* province,
but more particularly liecause she has
resources idontical to those of Uim
Ocepr d'Alenea. The influence of the
Rockefeller-Gould combination on the
market for silver and lead will lis for
its betterment, a ciroumstance much
to be desired  by  tlie  people of this
country.
In keeping with the major portion
6f thw province, the Conservatives of
the .Sloean riding got together at New
Denver on .Saturday last and did thore
Hoininate a standard hearer to uphold
their cauue at the election to lx* held
on October Sl. Their choice fs-ll on
Win. Hunter, of Silverton, ono of the
earliest pioneers of the camp, and a
man who is known to every person in
the camp, either personally or by reputation. And it speak-, well for Con-
.se.rvntis.iii in the riding that the imputation of their candidate i* of high
business principles and strict integrity,
and a man """hose election will do
honor to tli" constituency, A feeling
of genuine satisfaction ami confidence
has  been  imparted   by  Mr. Hunter's
selection and iniicL strength has boon
given the Conservative parly thereby,
A three-cornered light has developed
in the constituency and each of  lhe
candidates can boast of a strong per*
Bona] following.    The  fight  conse
quently resolves itself into one of mine
than  ordinary  interest, but  if confidence, determination and a good cause
count for anything, then surely will
the   Conservatives   laud   their   man.
They have much in  their favor   government prestige, a winning platform.
and a flrst-clnSs candidate.   It non
-remains for the rank aad file lodo
their part and  rail** to a man in sup
port of their leader.   Perfect organization anil a  strong canvass will tell
mon* than all the Sossy speech-making
that can be. introduced into tlie campaign.   Let every Conservative step
into tho light and ilo his duty, and the
result   will   lio   biiecess.     Tko   New
Denver convention  acted   with   judgment   and   discretion   and   brought
honor to the party by their choice.and
•t now behooves every supporter of the
cause to see that that honor is made
