It is Easy to Agree Upon

The North Atlantic Fisheries, Becip'ooitj
and the Behring Sea Questions
Still Open.
Washington, Not. 18.��� The monikers
of the Anglo-American commission,
Canadians and Americans, expressed
the hope today that the commission
would complete its labors before tlio
Christmas holidays, but tliey aro not
yet willing to stati a treaty will bo
framed covering ti.u many subjects of
difference between the United Statos
aud Canada. Greater progress lias
beeu made than is generally understood aud the rough drafts of somo
articles of Ibo proposed treaty have
boon submitted by sub-committees mid
tontativoly approved. Those, liowovor,
cover the minor questions and tlio important subjects of the North Atlantic
fisheries, reciprocity and tbo Behring
sea questions, remain opon, Whilo
the commission treats ull statements
regarding its work as unauthorized,
yet, it is understood by thoso acquainted with itB work, that the questions
of border immigration, mining rights,
lako fisheries aud the Alaskan-Canadian boundary have beeu found loss
difficult of solution thau was expected
and that a basis of agreement on tiuso
subjects is in sight, if not actually determined upon. Technically, however, little will be done until the lust
act of tho commission is performed, so
that those aud all others subjects remain open until the end. as to Behring sou, the view prevails on both
sides that a settlement will bo reached
and the presence of two officials, one
Canadian aud the other American at
Victoria, whero nn inventory is making of tho Canadian sealing fleet, lends
to the belief thnt the settlement muy
be pn tho basis of wiping out tho industry by giving Iho Canadians some
equivalent* for thoir capital invested.

arrangements for tho occasion so that
the expense will bo slight. Somo members of the board were of the opinion
that it would bo moro patriotic to send
the boys to the historical sceues of

friendliness between tbo United States

Washington, Nov. 18.���Tho joint ses
���ion of tho eonfereuce, hold today, was
briof aud the commission adjourned until Tuesday at 11 a. ro. The two sides
held separate sessions during tho afternoon and most of tbe time until Tuesday will be giveu to separate meetings,
It is uudorslood that tho item of livo
animals is receiving special attention.
The prospect of an early settlement of
tho Behring sea question was improved by tho receipt of word that the two
officials who havo been making an- appraisal of llio value of Ibo Canadian

Boston   Chamber   of  Coniniorco  Upholds Thom.
Boston, Mobs., Nov. 18.���Tbo Boston
chiimbor of commerco hns protested
against any action ou the part of the
United States und British joint high
commission that will imperil tho continuance of tho Canadian bonding
privileges. Tho resolution adopod refers to tho present method of permitting freight iu railway cars to bo sent
to eastern or western soctions of the
United Statos. through Canada and
back into United States, as being of
great oomnioroia) advantage to many
millions of the American people and
that for obvious reasons, it is opposed
by a number of American trunk lino
roads ; and thut it is of immense importance to the general business interests of this country that a treaty providing for reciprocal trade with Canada should be ratified. Therefore, it
was resolved, that the Boston Chamber
of Commerce depreciates the introduction of such conventions into the treaty
whioh the joint high commission haB
been appointed to frame, believing
that, it is not so much a matter of
difference betweon Canada and the
United States, as betweens various
transportation interests within our
own borders.

THK   EMPEROR'S   RETURN.
The Newspapers, However are Not Unan*
imous in Praise of the Proposed Arrangement-
Berlin, Nov. 18.���The aspirations of
Mr. Joseph Chamberlain, British colonial secretary, for an Anglo-German
entente, to whioh he gave utterance in
his speech at Manchestor, are well received by the press hero, which, however, contends that the relations between the two countries would never
have boen otherwise than friendly but
for Britain's determined opposition to
German colonial development. The
National Zeitung says that an amio
able settlement of differences would be
welcome, but a change iu England's
attitude is uecesury.
Tbo Tugeblutt says that au entente
wonld be extremely advantageous to
both countries.
Tbo Cologne Gazette declares that it
sees no ground for refusing the hand
that Mr. Cbuinberlain extends, but, it
mills, that cooperation is only possible
ou the basis of equal rights.

THE FIGARO'S VIEW.
Paris,   Nov.   18.���The  Figaro  says
that the English are hastening to follow   tho  path   pointed   ont   by   Mr.
Chamberlain.    "Iu their  eyes,"   tht
paper says, "an American   alliance  is I
sufficient to justify everything.     It is pursuit,
to them what a Russian  alliance  was |
to us at the   beginniug  of   the  'pour
parlors' which determined its  oonclu
sion."

Queenstown, Nov. 8.���Something in
the nature of t, sensation has been
caused here by the extraordinary conduct of Captain Johnson, commander of
the British steamer Briardeue, which
arrived here on October 21 from New
York, extensively damaged by Bevere
weather, during which sbe was almost
submerged for tou days. Since that
time tbe Briurdene hus been repairing
for a passage west. The Briardeue
was seized this morning by a marsh*:]]
of the admiralty court for debt and a
bailiff was placed on board of her.
The captain was determined to defy
the court and started for Delaware
breakwater, but the pilot who wus on
board, refnsod to navigato tho ship out
of the harbor, with the result, tbat the
captain attempted to do so and foundered the Briardene off Haul Bowline.
Two hours later she was floated off.

steamer Peconic, which arrived at
quarantine today, brought iuto port 18
ship-wrecked mariners who were taken out of the Dutch bark Johanna,
which was found iu a sinking condition on November 11, in latitude
888.04, longitude, 5.08. The bnrk was
bound from Now York for Honolulu
with a full general cargo. Fino weather was experienced until November H,
whon a terrific gale set in from N. N.
W., accompanied by enormous seas,
which flooded Ihe docks aud pounded
tho vessel violently. Tho midship bul-
workj wore smashed in uud tons of
wator fell continuously on the decks.
The main hutch wus smashed in, the
dock beams wero broken and tho vessol
began to take iu water at an alarming
rate. Soon it was found by sounding
that eight foot of water were in the
hold and tho ship was beginning to
heave aud buckle liko a basket. Many
if Iho beams of tho main deck weakened and it was feared that the vessel
would breuk in two amidships.
Capt. Mnars, believing that tho vessel would sink, ordered ont the boats,
iutoudiug to steer for Bermuda. The
lirst boat thrown overboard was dashed
(o pieces against the side of the bark.
The second boat was successfully
launched and contained the whole
crew of 18 persons. The wind had in
tho meantime shifted to the northeast
and increased the fury of the terrible
sen?. Tbe small bout, overladen with
her largo number of unfortunates,
with stores and water, was found to
be in a dangerous condition. The
boat had become damaged iu theofforts
to launch It and iu consequence great
judgment and care wero necessary in
order to keep it, afloat. Iu the damaged
small boat, which required constant
bailing, tho 18 seamen spent tho two
days in tbe vicinity of the Johanna,
us tliey bud determined to return to
the derelict wben tbo weather subsided. Tho small bout wus considered
unsafe for tho long trip to Bermuda.
During those two days, tho bark was
kept in sight, Finally on November
11, tho wind ancl sea weut down and
the men clambered on board the wreck
and sol distress sigunls. At. lip. m.
a steamer was seen approaching and

A LIGHT SENTENCE.
The Doctor Who Disappeared in Montreal Had $32,000 on   His  Life.
Montreal, Nov. 18.���It transpires

if these facts, some think thoro might

Sun Life for "forms of proof of death"
and those havo beon suppliod her. Upon these she will bo able to state what

THE NEWS FROM  WASHINGTON.
In yestorday's issue was a despatch
from Washiugton to tbe effect tbat
reciprocity of trade betweon the United States and Canada was uuder discussion in the international conference
in session there, nud setting forth that
an agreement on the part o'f the United States to a reciprocity treaty would
hiuge npou the abandonment by Cannda of the preferential tariff ou British
goods which tho Dominion government
agreed to give the mother couutry, as
earnest of Canada's desire for closer
trade relations within the empire.
In the first place it is evideut that
the despatch was written for the Associated Press in Washington by some
interested person. Indeed, thero would
be uo difficulty in naming the porson
who wrote it. There is iu the follow-
ng of Sir Richard Cartwright a man
who has boen a bitter foe of Canada
and has employed his skill as a writer
in exposing Canada's weakness to the
Americans so that their hands might be
strengthened in coercing and hurrass
ing this couutry, with a view to forcing her into tho American union. This
man evidently wrote this despatch or
inspired it. as it bears strnug evidence
of his work. If the matter treated of
in tho despatch was actually beforo tho
conference, this is Iho only way it
could oeoome public. Tho conference
while in session at Quebec was ex-
tremely careful thai uo intimation of
its proceedings Bhould roach the public
and tho same precautions have boon
observed at* Washington. Therefore,
nothing like tbis despatch, assuming
it to bo true, could transpire unless
through Sir Kicliurd Cartwrigbt's
henchman, who is one of the most insidious assailants Canadian institutions has ever had. It is extremely
dnugerous for Sir Wilfrid Laurier that
this combination should be against
him aud it would do extremely dangerous fur Canada if this combination
should be successful iu ousting the
distinguished Canadian, to whose
statesmanship wo owe the preferential tariff that has done
mere to strengthen the colonial connection than anything else. It, therefore, behooves the premier to movo
with wisdom, for there are those in
his path who arc ns subtle as serpents.
We, who are so fur away from the action, can see the scheme working, and
how much better those who are on the
spot should soc it. Sir Richard Cartwright is ono of the cleverest meu that
over sot in tho Canadian parliament
and when he wool over to the liberals,
the conservatives Inst a leader who
would have filled all requirements at
the present time for them. But Sir
Rii'hnrd Cartwright allowed himself to
become involved ill tho annexationist
movement and the prime abettor in
that movement, that brought* every-
oue connected wilh it to disaster, is
uow Sir Richard's obief advisor and
at his elbow doing what ho cau to influence the conference in accordance
with his views.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier can only withstand these intrigues by adhering to
the preferential tariff. That will insure him support throughout the country on broad imperial grounds whicli
will attract conservatives and liberals
alike. Should lie defer to tbe Americans to such an extent as to crifice
any part* of his declared policy for
the doubtful benefits of a reciprocal arrangement such ns tho Amoricaus
would bo likely to concede, ho would
invito political ruin, Candinns cannot closo thoir eyes lo the fuct that tho
Americans in their dealings with this
couutry havo been an arbitrary people,
and any trade treaty on their part
which would not give the best end of tho
bargain to them would bo too much to
hopo for. The attempt to dictate Canada's fiscal policy, as outlined in tho
despatch, is enough to show tho trend
of Amerioan diplomacy, covertly di-
rooted by ths old annexationist advor
ury. The Commercial Union proposition of tho lung since discredited
ErastUB Winian, in which Sir Richard
Cartwright, Mr. John Carlton, Mr.
Wayland (lien and otliers   saw   some
thing worthy of espousal, suggested
that Canada should tako her tariff
from Washington, and now tbat suggestion is presented in another form.
The time has not come when Canada
thinks more of reciprocity of trade
with tho United States in a few articles, tban of her trado relations with
Great Britain, nnd it certainly will
never como. Tbe Washington despatch
referred to in itself gives roason why
Sir Wilfrid Laurier should adhere, aud
lhat most tenaciously, to his imperial
policy. If tho preferential tariff has
done so much tor the cotton goods
trade within the empire, what wonld
not a more extended application of the
preferential principle evolve? Whnt
the Americans hiwo to fear, aud what
tho high protectionist world has to
fear, is that. Oroat Britain, in tlio face
of hostile tariffs everywhere, should
herBelf revert to protection to the extent of giving the products of hor colonial possessions preference in her
markets. Ten years ago such a proposition would have beon considered preposterous. Todny it is among tbe probabilities. Sir Wilfrid Laurier gave
the theory impetus towards practicability and thereby imprinted his name
in the pantheon of history. The Canadian people are with him iu his
courso nud he cannot retreat from it
without stultifying himself and doing
irreparable injury to the party to
which he hus brought so much distinction.

To the Editor of Tho Miner,
Sir:���Is it not high time that our
city council tnko under advisement
the question of the removal of the
houses of ill-repute ou East Baker
Btreet to a moro obscure quarter. The
block now occupied by the demi-monde
which lios immediately east of Hall
street may safely lie called tho heart of
Nelson, and, owing to our rapid
growth, is now required for legitimate
business pursuts. The city authorities
seem to have lost track of the fact that
somo 1200 to lfiOO peoplo who havo
built homes adjacent to this vicinity
ro, to a certain extent, compolled to
traverse East Baker street, and nre
brought, moro or less, in contact with
the characters who frequent this part
of the town.
We are on the eve of another municipal election, and tho upholders of decency are pledged to support the candidate who will assure relief iii tbis
direction. Measures should bo taken
at ouco to remove theso people to a
more suitable spot, and I am satisfied
thut the city council eould tind n place
if so disposed and compel them to go
without much ado.
Asido from tbo publicity of Iheir
houses these people, are allowed to do
pretty much as tboy please in Nelson.
Disturbances in the neighborhood are
of nightly occurrence wilh no arrests,
and flic noise emanating from the combined pounding upon a dozen or more
pianos is awful.
About 1�� months ago Mayer Houston
ran all of these piaiiopmiiidcrs out of
town One of tbem was brought before
Magistrate Crease and was given the
option of finding other employment or
of leaving town within 2\ hours He
left.
Tho women are allowed to frequent
the saloons and aro allowed to disport
themselves in a drunken condition upon Ihe streets without fear of arrest���
even on a Sunday afternoon.
Tbe women who are conducting
houses of prostitution on East Baker
street aro openly transgressing tlio law.
If thoy refuse to move to a more obscure quarter then tho levying of
heavy lines for the maintenance of
bawdy houses and the illegal selling of
liquor will bo iu order. Gentlemen
of the city council, if you want to bo
re-elected, do your duty in tbis matter
ftt ouco.    Yours truly,
CITIZEN.

The Shore Question Attracting Much Attention.
pc
IT IS OF GREAT IMPORT
The Eeport ofthe Commission Will Likely
Advise an Immediate Settlement
by Frenoh Withdrawal
Toronto, Out., Nov. 18.���The Globe
Loudon cable says: The French shore
question in connection with Newfoundland is attracting �� good (leal of
attention since Chamberlain's speoch.
There is good reason to believe that
the report of the commission, lately
returned, will prove of grave import.
The likelihood is that the question
will be included with n number of others in the negotiations between France
and Britain whioh nre approaching.
There is good roason for stating that
while the home and Canadian governments intend completely re-organizing tbe Canadian system
of defence, General Hutton carried
no special orders with him to Canada.
I learn from an official source that
the imperial government has no
thought of further considering the
question of the Pacific cable uutil Canada speaks. Nothing has been done
here regarding the fast Atlantic service since tho Petersen schemo  lapsed.
There was a clonu record ut  the
lice court yesterday.
Another shipment of coal from the
Crow's Nest Pass coal mines is expected in Nelson tomorrow evening.
Work is being pushed on the tug tho
C. P. K. is building at the Nelson
shipyard, and hor boiler van put in
yesterday. The name of Iho tug has
not yet been decided upon.
j The Kev. Robert Frew will preach
tomorrow ovening in the Presbyterian
churoh on "Tho Sorrows of Satan."
During tho nfternoi n Mrs. \V. F.
Brougham will sing "Best in the
Lord" from Handel's Messiah.
The steamer Minto was launched at
0 o'clock on Thursday morning at Nakusp. She is uLout the size of the
Moyie, but has larger state room accomodation. This makes Ihe third
large steamer the 0. P. R. bas npon
the Arrow Lakes, tho other two being
the Rossland and the Kootenay.
Now that the Alberto is taking tho
International's run to Kaslo, whilo
the latter boat is being repaired, there
is no steamer plying to Bonner's
Ferry. An effort is being made to
commission tbe Ainsworth, which is
at present idle, to mako the Alberta's
Bonner's Ferry trip.
J. E. Amiable yesterday 'dosed a
real estate transaction with W. P.
Tierney, agent for the Gait Coal company of Lethbridge, for the purchase
of tho residence opposite tho Presbyterian church ou Victoria street. Tho
price paid was $1400. Mr. Tiorney
will move his family into their new
home about Dec. 1.
The homeless boy, Tom Whymack,
whose finding by the chief of police
was chronicled in yesterday's Miner,
was examined yesterday. He seems
an intelligent lad, and says his father
is a Roman Catholic. The Rov. Father
Ferland is interesting himself in finding him a temporary honif, while his
father is being communicated with.
Telopment work on tho North Star
mine, uear Fort Steele.
E. J. Walsh has a force of men at
work on tho Southern Cross, in which
work will l.e prosecuted during the

The Fort Steele Prosppctor entered

A   PLAY WMLL STAGED.
The five aot drama, "Hands Aorots
the Sea," with which the R.E.French
compauy will open a week's engagement at the Nelsou Skating rink on
Monday night has afforded the scenic
artist a good opportunity to display his
skill witb the brush.
Nettleton's farm, iu the first act,
presents a picture strongly suggestive
of fields and meadows and of new
mown hay. The second act has four
effective Bcenes, and especially the
last one, the court yard of Mile. Valuer's gambling den, in which the
murder occurs. Tho third act gives a
set of living pictures of the interior of
the famous La Roquette prison, in
which   all   criminals  condemned
death aro beheaded by the guilotine.
The double sceno of a prison coll anil
corridor from whicli Jack Dudley escapes, and the subsequent change frort
the court yard to the prison where ho
is recaptured, nro effective pictures of
tbe artists brush. The deck of the
United States ship forms the center of
attraction iu the fourth act���musts,
rigging, ridges, with all their adjuncts
necessary to the proper representation
of lifo aboard a ship with seemingly
nothing lacking save the Bmell of tar
and rolling and pitching movements of
tbe vessel, being thero to complete the
illusion. The dock in Sydney harbor,
with warehouses on thc side, and tho
big ship landing her passengers nud
cargo in the back ground, makes up a
living picture in the last act that is
not loss interesting than the others.
The performance is evenly balanced,
and tho warmth and recalls that greet
the many strong situations and tableaux aro the best evidences of the popularity of "Hands Across thoJSoa," as
produced by the Frcuch Theatre company.

>.uw, condemning the precipitation of
the strike, he oould not help a sympathy
for tho   strikers.    Wells,   on   tho   other

wanted Kace to join with the othor
tradesmen in refusing credit to the strikers and thus "knock the strike Hat."
Unci' did promise to see the butchers und
grocers. But he found them linn for the
strikers. So, wretchedly enough, ho went
to report his failure. Wells was out of
town. To write a letter on anything
more delicate than the prioe of groceries
wus a stupendous matter to honest Race.
"I'll wait und see the old mnn, and explain," said he, mopping at the wrinkles
fust settling on his forehead. Wherefore
it fell out that Unco's patron received
his lirst news trom the paper friendly to
the strikers. And it wns Race's hard fate
to run up against Wells and Cochrane at
the climax of Wells' explanation how his
trustiest henchman hail deserted him.
"Oh, I'll answer for Unities; Battles is
all right!" ho had assured Cochrane:
and hero he must confess that Buttles
wus ull wrong. Race's appearance guve a
ready opportunity to release his anger
and disappointment. Nor did Kuce, an
nfterwitted fellow nt the best, find a
word of reply. He stumbled nwny like a
fool, nml so the trouble began, And yes-
terday, when ho paid Wells, paid hhn
every lust cent duo���and It wus like
drawing blood to raise that mouey���
when ha came into thc store thinking,
&nvhow, he'd get a good word from him,
then what happened?
They told him Mr. Wells wns busy,
und would he wait? He wouldn't wait;
he sulci it was no oonsaquenoe, ho only
came to pay some money, and he paid it,
every cent! There wasn't enough left
for the insurnnco on the house, und fire
was the dread of his life. "I wouldn't
have minded so much if he'd spoke to
mo himself! I'll be broko up fast enough;
ain't he satisfied with that?" groaned
Raoe. it did nut distract him from his
dejection, ulthough the aet had that intention���to go to the door and look about
him. Whnt a comfort just looking at
thnt building had been to Horace Battles.
"To think of me owning a handsome
brick store like that!" he used to muse
in a glow of delicious wonderment.
Every one admired the building, three
stories high, narrow to be sure, but of
generous depth, with a large, arched
window, und a high, dark given panelled
door, and fixtures and woodwork of a
beautiful cherry red; a storo so shining
clean, so sunny, und so tasteful in summer (when u tiny fountain played amid
radishes, lettuce, and strawberries) that
strangers often craned their necks b.i'-k-
wnril ns they were driving past tlie neat
gilt sign. To-day the windows wero quite
ns clean, but the display wus dismally
meagre. The dizzy pyramids of tinned
goods in their grny papers had dwindled
to two towers of liy-specked cans of peas.
Danny hud tried to eke out the tableau
by u barricade of soup und a row of hot-
ties containing an unsuccessful, though
deserving, brand of pickles.
Farther down the street the grimy
brick wtills of tho great plough shops
turned their blank windows and barred
doors sullenly on tbo little homes that
used to light thoir household fires ut*
thoso smokeless ohtmaeys. Two wutch-
men paced languidly in the sunshine, an
unconscious compliment to Leroy's discipline, else would thoir heads havo
been broken long ago, Leroy himself
came up the street. He greeted the watchman in a matter-of-fact way, saying
something thnt Knee was not close
enough to hear, hut he saw that each of
the men eyed the labor leader's baok,
and they spoke together,
Leroy was a tall man. muscular ivnd
cleanly built, with nn ease of motion
often seen in those whoso muscles are
kept always iti trim by exercise.
He wore his brown curls short, and a
linn chin was clean-shaven, but his
mouth was hidden by a moustache. If
his mouth hnd the expression of his eyes,
lt wns very gentle.
"Well," he suid, "Race, I oouldn't
wait until evening."
"What's up?" said Race; "you boys
going to give up tho strike?" Leroy
shook his head. He followed Race into
the store, where Danny was arranging
the shelves and futilely trying to fill tbe
gnps with decorations In the ahupa of
placnrds. The boy's eyes were red. Leroy
nodded to him and went on to the tiny
ollice. He balanced himself on a stool by
the desk, and absently printed Race'B
stump on a card Haunting the purity of
Baking Powder.
"How did it go, Hurry?" said Race.
to start with.
"All wrong. We're boat, und the longer
we keep this up tlie worse wo're beat!
I'd have got out of town lust month but
for seeing the boys through."
"Hut, Hurry, won't tliey take you
back?"
"Not they. There's the disadvantage
of being president, I try to hold the men
back in the lirst pluce, and get their ill
win as a pusillanimous���"
"Hut they know better now I"
"Some of theni, not all by a long
chalk, or they'd back out of the strike.
And the company thinks that legged thc
mon on. I'll not get taken on, no nintter
who is, you can bet your lite on that!"
"But you're such a good workman!"
"flood workman doesn't count. Thoy
think I'm n meddle* and stirred up this
racket to further my own ambitious purposes. Ood knows what they were I
don't. But* that's the way It goes. The
union always catches it nnd the union
lenders are always to blame, and yet from
my experience I'd say that in nine cases
out of ten tlie lenders aro for peaco and
prudence, and prevent more strikes than
they cause, ten tu one. Whon they do go
Into a strlko it's either because they seo
no other way to prevent tho men's being
ground to powder, or because there's a
crazy pressure on them from the hot
heads thut they can't resist. But you
don't hour of the strikes that are pro-
vented; und when a strike does come
off, you see the officers' names in the
paper nnd they're making the speeches,
nnd when a light begins, oven a fight
you'ro opposed to lt ain't in human nature not to sail iu and put up tho best
fight you can! But thut Isn't what I
came to talk about, My goose is cooked.
Well, I mndo a living before I over saw
Alan Cochrane, und I guess I can mnko
a living without. But here's what I'm
after. There Is always a lot of outside
sympathizers who like to be in uny muss
going.and they kee]) the hot heads stirred
up, and ns things go from liad to worfio
the Bobor fellows catch the fever; they
went to swipe somebody. There's a lot
of bad blood In town, a lot, Race. You
know there's talk tlmt Coolirane's going
to bring in a car load of new men ami
these crazy fellows are swearing thut If
(hat'u so the   new   men sha'nt   find any
Fhops to go into. May be all talk, but
it's ugly talk. I don't like it; uud I sent
a note to Cochrane offering to send Borne
men to guard the shops. He declined.
Said as much that I had something
cloaked by the offer. It was," said L"t*oy
little, "it wns
pretty insulting letter. I warned him
to keep nway from tho shops nights; but
he's sandy us tho devil und ho goes just
the same. Perhaps if you were to see hint
and tell him what I'll tell you, he might
take it us corroborating me, and bo a
mite cnrefuller "
"Well, I call that real forgiving of
you, Harry, helping Cochrane out of tlie
holo this way!"
Leroy's culm brown eyes blnzed suddenly tvs ho answered with a novel heat,
"I don't enre for Alan Cochrane! I
wouldn't cross the street, to save his immortal soul! But I won't havo any dirt
charged up against tho union while I'm
bossing the light! It's thoso cussed fools
like Dick Bellalr, and Haney and Brown
that kill a strike! They act so, no decent
folks oan sympathize with the strikers!"
"That's right," agreed Race. "Hullo,
there's my little girl I How'd you get
home so early, daughter?"
Stella's figure in the doorway, with
the sunshino behind her, was so bright-
some a picture, in her pretty print frock
and broad hut trimmed with roses, with
tho Hush on her delicate cheek and tin
light in hor soft eyes, that it might set
uny father's heart to a lighter measure
With all his worries, Race smiled.
"Can't I see you for just a minute, pal
Will you excuso me, Mr. Leroy?" salt!
Stella, her pretty manner the prettier
for the girlish blush that oame with the
words.
Race went a little apart with her,
rather puzzled. It wus not like Stella tc
run in on tho business. Stella held "business" in proper awo. But she could
hardly wait now to havo him well out of
earshot. Hastily she held out her bund
nnd showed him some bank-notes.
"There's $15, pa," she said, breathlessly;
"it's ma's and u little I had saved; and
ma's willing; we talked it over, und we
couldn't sleep nights if you turned Danny off. Please tako lt, pa; It'll pay threo
weeks' wages, and lots of things may
huppen in three weoksl Please, pa!"
"And tho graduation dress and���"
But sho interrupted him: "1 don't need
tho dress. I'm going to leave before we
graduate.  Ma's willing."
Rnco stood silent, his eyes filling with
tears. How he felt he could hardly have
told himself. He only wus sure that lie
could neither take tho sacrifice nor refuse
it. In the pause, Danny, on tho other
side of tho partition, slunk away with
his knuckles in liis eyes. "Daughter,"
said Huce, finally, "you wuit; I'll think
it over. Maybe���maybe I won't need to
tako your money to keep Danny. You
wait. No, you needn't ieuve the money
with me."
Leroy himself turned away then anti
walked to the door of the shop, where
presently Battles joined him.
"Now," said Leroy, not looking a; bis
friend. "I'll tell you what I've found
out.''

they've   got   Haney's   cousin

Wee   how   she'll give me tho
Alan Cochrano's house stands no preat
distance from the plough works. He is
an elderly Scotchman, n widower these
twenty yenrs, with no nearer kin than
his seventh cousin, Mrs. Graham, wlio
keeps his houso and he cares not a pin's
head for fashion. His big, square, wooden house, stands in its large, oid-fash-
loned garden, as it has stood for twenty-
live years; although, long since, its neighbors have beon transmuted Into sb*>ps or
storehouses, or have been ra/.*.)d to tho
ground to make room for brick walls.
The blinds in front are always closed;
why, only Mrs. Graham can tell; it is
her custom, ns lt is her custom to wear
blaok silk mitts and to allow no followers to her maids���wherefore she often
is left with no maids at nil.
When Leroy and Battles came to tho
iron gate (a high iron fenco enclosing a
hedge surrounds the place) Leroy paused.
"I'll not go in with you," lie bogau, hut
he took a quick step backward in the
shade of tho hedge, darting a Warning
frown, and beckoning to Kace to do the
same, wliich Kace did mechanically.
"Why, Harry," said he, "thure's Ave
of those fellers going up tho steps. What
does it mean?"
"It means, I guess, that they're smart-
er'n I counted on their being, autl they're
going to catch him at horn? wiiero he
won't have a soul but women in call;
and it's Thursday, the cook's day out;
and the meeting dny of the Presbyterian
sewing society tbat Mrs. Graham goes to
regular as taxes." He was looking the
whole street over while he spoke, not
seeing a soul ln view. "I guess you and
I will have to tackle this job, Battles,"
said ho.
"Sure," says Kace. "How'll we git ill,
Harry?"
"Easy;
hero; she
password,
glad hand."
Kace knew the girl himself, having in
pleasanter days often handed her the
family Hour and berries, nml she smiled
in a frightened way on him. Leroy had
not touched the bell; he hatl only knocked
ln a peculiar fashion. Sho hatl instant lv
responded.
"All right," said Leroy, very low; ho
added another wor.i>-
"You're sure you'ro to come, too?"
said the girl, who seemed scared out of
hor wits. "Oh, I'm sorry you're in it,
you and Mr. Battles."
"Never you mind us!" Mild Leroy,
kindly, but always in the same low voice.
"We'll help and not hinder."
"Don't lot 'em hurt him, will you,
Mr. Leroy?"
"I'll try my best," returned Leroy,
rather grimly.
The two mon stole down a dark hall,
through what appeared to be a dining-
room and took breath outside a heavy
black walnut door
Race's pulses wero drumming, but
Leroy looked as pale, dejected, and culm
as usual. He slid his hand to his hip-
pocket "Your's nil right?" suid * he.
Hace nodded, imitating the motion.
"Then listen I"
Cochrano's voice came to them distinctly. "No, I won't sign an agreement
to take you all back at half the increase,
or any increase, or take you baok at all;
and you won't kill me without a light!"
Leroy laid his hand on the door-knob.
His lips formed an inaudible whistle. He
stopped softly across the room.
"Look out of tho window," he whls
peretl.
"The window's open," reported Race,
"but there's ti screen in it. There's a
balcony outside anil wo eould swing
ourselves over and batter the screen down
with a chair or something."
Cochrane had stepped book, edging
nearer the library-table und the drawer
where lay a revolver, and young Billy
