MR.    HARDY   BLAMED
for Introducing Into Constituencies Work-
era Whom the Conservative Leader
Calls "SpoundrelB."
Napanee, Out., Nov. 17.���Mr. Whitney, provincial conservative leader,
made an exeedingly bitter speech here
last night, speaking in behalf of Mr,
Meaohnm, the conservative candidal e
for Lennox. He ooudemned the Hardy
government very strongly for holding
the bye-eli<otions oue at a time, instead
of together.
"Why is lt?" he usked, "that we
And all over the province in :lu. different elections tbere have been tlie samo
body of scoundrels appearing in each
constituency tliat have appeared iu
Lennox. Tliey may sny that Mr.
Whitney lias uo right to make these assertions, that he can prove nothing ul
the kind, but I say that my statement
is true, that these heelers were in
South Ontario aud that they aro iu
Lennox, and here are photographs of
two of them.''
Here Mr. Whitney held up two photographs, amidst tremenduos cheers
from the audieuce. Continuing he
said: "Please God, wo will have
pictures of moro of them before the
week is over aud they will be dealt
with as meu of the character which
they boar deserve to be dealt with,
and we ask you to deal with the employers and masterB of these men who
aro uot ashamed, that right uuder
their uoses in this country this sort of
monstrous iniquity should be carried
ou."
UNDER THE BAN.
Father  Zurcher's Book    on   Jesuits
Suppressed hy Rome.
New York, Nov. 17. ��� A   special   to
tho World from Washington says:
"Signor Martinelli,the apostolic del-
agate, lias recoived from Rome two

the once powerful inquisition, or tho-
Holy Office, and declares that the lunik
"Monks and Their Decline," by Rev.
Geo. Zurcher, pnstor of St. Joseph's
church. Buffalo, has been placed under
the ban of tho church aud tlie author
is in danger of excommunication unless he retracts hiB errors. Father Zur
���jher's hook was published six months

drinking than ngninst the orders.
HANDS ACROSS THK SKA.
The R. E. French company will open a week's engagement next Monday
night iu tlie Nelsou skating rink, with
the popular play, '' Hands Across the
Sea." The Denver News has this to
say of the play :
"The best evidenco of the great* popularity of "Hands Across the Sea" is
that it ,pluyed in up town theatres in
New York five times this season. The
company received a perfect ovation
from rather a oold and critical audience, yet as the play progressed and
the people warmed up to their work
and displayed their ability and talent
the audieuce warmed np to them and
gave them a hearty recognition that
found voice in thunders of applause
aud repeated curtain calls. The performance was a complete success from
beginning to end. The company made
a most favorable impression that will
seenre their success individually aud
collectively. The new scenery was
one of tlie features of the play and
with each succeeding change received
a warm reception from the audience.
"Hands Apross the Sea, "is well worth
going a long distance to see nnd it is
sure to attract a great honse. "

WILL CANADI
AGREE TO THIS?
Very Important Intelligence
From Washington.
In 1854 the United States purchased
the right to land on the Canadian
coasts for other than tbe purposes
named, American fishermen wished to
buy bai* in Canadian ports, to ship
crews, to purchase supplies, including
ice, and to bond tbeir fish ; tbat is. to '
transport them in bond either on Can- :'
adian railways or on steamers bound
for the United States, so that tbe may
get rid of their cargo quickly and
urry baok to tbe banks, instead of
carrying it to Boston or Gloucester and
going bock empty, whieh entails loss
of time. The United Stntes purchased
these privileges in 1854 by abolishing
the duties on Canadian fish.
WHAT THE U. S. WANT

hospitably entertained. As a memento of the occasion, the citizens of

liam Van Home, in a letter addressed

now in custody.
Washington, Nov. 17.���The Anglo-
American commission now in session
here to adjust the differences between
the United States and Oanada, today
held a lengthy session upon the two
subjects which are regarded as of most
importance, namely, the north Atlantic fisheries and reciprocity. The fisheries question was practically taken up
for the first time and it was quite definitely understood that the position
of the Canadian government was made
clear as favorable to granting enlarged
rights to American fishermen in tbe
Canadian waters of the north Atlantic,
if in return Canadian fish are admitted free of duty to American markets.
It is expected that this will open up a
wide range of discussion aud an immediate adjustment is not looked for.
Concerning reciprocity, it has now
developed that while some progress is
beiug made iu considering certain
articles which will be the basis of reoi
procity, yet the American commission
ers are likely to insist us a preliminary
to any reciprocity that Canada shall
wipe out that feature of her tariff low
which gives Great Britain a preference
ot 25 per c.'nt on all tariff duties. If
this important concession is made by
Canada and conceded by Lord Herschell, who is looking after che interests of Great Britain, then it is soid
a reciprocisty list will probably be
agreed upon. Without the abolition
of preferential rates to Great Britain,
the opinon is very positively expressed
that a reciprocity agreement cannot be
reached. The reason for this, it is
pointed out, is that the Canadian law
giving Great Britain preference within tho last year has diverted trade
from the United States and turned it
into British channels. The effect has
boen to reduce materially the sales of
American cotton goods and hardware
in Canada and to increase the sales of
British goods.
One of the American experts said today that the shipments of cotton cloth
to Canada had fallen off $1,770,000 in
1897 to $788,000 in 1898, a loss of about
oue milliou dollars owing to the fact
that British cotton clothes' received a
preference of 25 per cent in the duties.
The American commissioners feel that
if they can succeed in having this
British preferential stopped it will be
a greater achievement than nny reciprocity ugreemeut. The debate thus
fur has encouraged the American commissioners to believe that they will
succeed iu having this preferential
wiped out.
The fisheries question is of long
stunning and aside from its importance to the commerce of New England
it is snid to give a basis for a position
of serious conflict between this country and Great Britain. Wearied by
the length of the controversy Oanada
has intimated that in case it remained
open, recourse might be taken to the
seizure of American fishing vessels in
Canadian waters. This doubtless would
lead to serious international complications. Thia hus been the view of members of tlie commission and as a result
thoy aro exceedingly anxious to secure
a settlement of this question. It is
understood thut thero is some likelihood
ef a committee of American. Canadian
and English lawyers being appointed
to determine the meaning of the treaty
of 1818 which govern these fishery
rights. Tbo suggestion of tbis international body hus come, it is understood, from Lord Herschell, should such
a body be appointed, it would do awuy
with the chance of any collision occurring between the Canadian offioials
and American fishing vessels during
tho approaching fishing season.
THE FISHERIES QUESTION.
Washington, Nov. 17.���A high official stated the Canadian viow of the
fisheries questions as follows: The
commiBsiou will have a serious difficulty to settlo in the north Atlantic
fishery question. It is a question
which may give the commission some
troublo. The position of the Canadian
goveruent is not, I think, very well
understood in the United States. The
treaty of 1818 provides, roughly speaking, that United States fishermen
shall not have access to the inhabite 1
coasts of the Canadian sea board. On
tin se coasts American fishermen aro
not entitled to land save for four purposes, specifically named in the treaty j
namely, for food, water, shelter aud
repairs. The object of the treaty wns
obviously to give the Canadians ex
elusive control of their own coasts as a
base of operations for carrying ou the
fishery. Such has been the Canadian
interpretation ever since the treaty
was framed und the United States has
accepted it as the true   interpretation
WILL INVESTIGATE
BY DECREE OF ROME.
Roman Catholics Oan   Now Be  Members of Masonic and Otber Bodies.
Montreal, Nov. 17.���The decree from
Rome in reference to funeral services
for Catholics who joined the Masonic
fraternity, just promulgated at Washington by Mgr. Marlinelli, apostolic
delegate to the United States, was received with great rejoicing by the
Catholics of Montreal, who were virtually excommunicated seven years ago
because of a papal decree forbidding
Catholics to belong to secret societies
Tbe decree just issued permits a priest
to officiate interments in oonseorat
ed ground, though they belonged to
secret societies, particularly the Ma
sonic order, provided the deceased was
not openly hostile to the ohuroh and
expressed at some time his willingness
to become reconciled to his former
faith. It is considered to le as sweeping as the original decree excommunicating thoso who did not resign from
snob societies.     The  original  decree
fut the Knigbts of Pbythias and Odd
'ellows under the ban of the church,
the same as the Masons. It is also now
contended that if a Catholic who belonged to secret orders may be buried
in consecrated ground, the doors must
he opened to him before the deoree and
he will no longer be refused the rights
of the church, eveu if he does i.ot give
up membership iu the order to which
he belongs.

Narrow Escape of a G. T. R.   Passenger Train From  Disaster.
Port Hope, Out., Nov. 17 ���Another
disaster to an expiess train fmm the
north was narrowly averted yesterday.
Express due at 12.50 p. m ran off the
track a few blocks from the main
street. Engineer Young, as he ap-
pttA.��..j��:*d noticed that Um svvitoh was
open and knew that if he conld not stop
the engine it would crash through a
bridge a few yards ahead. A box car
on a siding obscured the signal until
too late to stop, but the engineer remained at his post and applied tlie
brakes, with the result that only the
engine and tender left tbe track. The
passengers were badly frightened, but
no one was hurt. Conductor Mitchell,
oue of the best men on the road was in
charge of the truck. No blame can be
attached to him or his crew. In fuct
the courage of the engineer preveuted
nnother terrible accident, aB the drop
from the bridge to the bed of the ereek
is 20 teet. Traffic was blocked on this
end of the linn until 5 p.m.

CONSERVATIVE   ASSOCIATION.
CONSIDERING THE CASE
The Department of Justioe Will Go Over
the whole case and Deoide Upon
a Line of Action-
Toronto, Out., Nov. 17.���At the Toronto Central Conservative association
meeting last night, Edmund Bristol
was elected president,
Washington, Nov. 17.���Up to tbli
time no definite plans with respect to
tbe prosecution of tbe participants in
tbe riotous conduct at Wilmington
against J. W. Tolbert. have been de.
cided upon. The faot that Tolbert is
tbe assistant postmaster at MoCormiok
and not tbe postmaster, may have an
important bearing ou tho case. Assistants to fourth olass postmasters are
not recognized by the law as officers
of the government, tbey being appointed and paid by tbe postmasters. Assistant United States Attorney Coohraue
from the Tolbert district was ordered
to Washington for conference with the
officials of the department of justice
and upon his arrival tomorrow the
whole Sonth Carolina situation will
be gone over aud a line of aotiou will
be decided upou.
The case of R. H. Dunning, United
States commissioner, at Wilmington,
N. C. is said to present uoue of the
difficulties which have appeared in the
Tolbert case, and it is thought that
instructions will soon be given the
United States attorney there to make
an investigation of the facta with a
view to beginning proceedings.
BY Di . &S-S   APPOINTMKNT.    ?
Egypt Will  Be   a   British   Possession
Within Five Years.
Kingston, Nov. 17.���Rev. Dr. Evans, who has spent many years in
Egypt, and in now here arranging to
return to the Holy land, told a correspondent that he looks for war between Great Britain and France, as
Frauce has been long seeking to cause
a trouble by her actions in Egypt.
Then he grew eloquent, remarking :���
"I believe we will have wars until
all other empires are destroyed, and the
Anglo-Saxon race takes possession and
establishes a universal empire. Britain
must take hold of Egypt, because we
find in God's Word that. Israel must
return. The eastern question is working out the Word of God. WbBu the
Union Jack is planted on Mouut Olive,
Israel will have returned,und the country will blossom like a rose. If Britain is to got Palestine, she must first
get Egypt; therefore, Britain will say
to France: 'Get out of the Nile valley altogether.'
"Franco is today a political and military imbecile, and if she fights Britain today she will go down, never to
rise again. She may preoipitate hostilities, but I do not feor the resnlt,
becauso of the promise of God. The
land of the pyramids will be in possession of Britain within five years.
Sho will turn down the Khedive, and
suy to the nations: 'This is mine by
Divine appointment, and mine by military and naval achievement.'"

ANGLO-AMERIOAN   ALLIANCE.
Speaking at the conservative club in
Loudon on Wednesday night last, Hon.
Joseph Chamberlain, touching on the
inferences drawn by French newspapers from the probable Anglo-American
alliance, put the matter plainly and
sensibly,  thus:
"Those persons are very premature,
very much mistaken, who think that
Great Britain is in need of an alliance
for her own security, and in order
tbat other powers may pull ohesnuts
out of the Are.
This the meeting received with loud
and prolonged cheers. Continuing,
Mr. Chamberlaiu said that Britain
would never need more aid than would
be cheerfully afforded by her own
children. Should she ever need an alliance she would give as much as she
received.
"I rejoice." he said, "at the change
that has occurred in the relations between the United States and Great
Britain. They stand to ns in a relation
difforeut from that occupied by auy
other people. I know a hundred reasons why we should be frieuds, none
why we should be otherwise, aud I
believe that has been the true feeling
of this couutry toward the United
States for many years. All misunderstandings have been happily removed
aud the combinations of thc two English-speaking nations would fear 110
other alliance. Our imagination must
be tired when we CO j template the pos
silnlity ot such a cordial understanding between the 10,()00,000 people of
the United States and our 50,000,000
Britons, au understanding which
would guarantee peace and civilization
to the world . We sha.'l welcome the
United States in tbeir now career us a
colonizing nation, because we know
they arc animated by the same motives
ami aspirations, employ tho same
methods nud love justice as ourselves,
and such a departure will, doubtless,
as Lord Salisbury has said, serve our
interests, not in any selfish or mercenary sense, but because it will give
each a better understanding for the
other's work, increase our sympathies,
bring us closer together nud make easy
and Inevitable that most desirable cooperation. "
In tliis Mr. Chamberlain showed
that while Great Britain desired au
alliance with Ihe United Stutes, she
would not go out of her way to court
it, being oonteut to let matters tako
their course. Tliat such an alliance
will come about sooner or later is eas
ily to be seeu, but Mr Chamberlain
introduces another party to it in the
person of Germany, which may somewhat complicate matters. Germany
is not friendly to the United States.
At least, that is the inference to be
drawn from thc action of that country
in the Philippines, if all the stories
coming from Manila aro true, and unless a lot of things can bo explained
away it is hard lo see how Germany
can be restored lo thc good graces of
the Americans. Then there are the
slights Germany bus put upon lhe
Amerioan hog ami his products, and
the insults in tlie shape of high duties
whioh tlie Germans have heaped upon
American produots generally. What
about these tilings'.'   Must thoy not

THE ABERDEENS' GOODBYE.
Before leaving Canada for good,
Lord aud Lady Aberdeen have taken a
graceful farewell of their many friends
in this oountry by sending a farewell
present in the shape of a daintily gotten up pamphlet from the pen of Lady
Aberdeen. The publication is en titled
"Where dwells our ludy of tho Sunshine," and, in eloquent and allegorical language tlie authoress predicts a
glorious future for tho fair land of
Canada.
This result, however, is not to be
obtained without labor, as the sage
points out; "Will ye serve her? Will
ye toil for her, following loyally in
the steps of her noble pioneers, winning her lauds for her by persistent
laborV Will ye upolild her just laws?
Will you be fellow workers with her
and spread her rule by the influence
of sunshine nnd love? * * *-If ye
will do these things, then go. Seek
'OnrTiady of the Sunshine' and take
my blessing with you, for oven as tbe
hour of my departure grows near do I
see the coming fulfilment of the fair
vision of which I have so oft times
dreamt. "
This advice, though quaintly put,
points to the secret, of all lasting success, and, if the numerous recipients
ot this parting gift profit, by the lessons
it. contains, Lady Abeideen's parting
words to her Canadian frieuds will
not liave been spoken in vain.

COOMBS' THEATRE COMPANY.
They Make Their Farewell Appearance
in "Bleak House."
A somewhal scanty audience assembled at the Hotel Huinii Auditorium last night to hear llie Jane
Coombs' company play the "Bleak
House." This inadequate support is
the more to be regretted as llie management nf lhe Hotel Hume had gone
to considerable trouble and expense in
adapting the auditorium to the requirements of a theatrical exhibition.
The play, a dramatization of Dickens' famous work, is too well known
to require uny description. The play
is a powerful one. -"and Miss Coombs
in her rendition of lhe part of Ludy
Dedlock-showed Unit she fully realized
the conception of tlie author. Sho was
equally good as Hovlense. and is undoubtedly one of the most talented actresses that have visited Nelson.
F. A. Brown was good as Tulking-
horn, as was Miss Carlton as Jo, and
they were well supported by tho rest
of the company. It is nufornnate that
such fine plays as "Ctimille" and
"Bleak House," the two the Jane
Coombs' oompany played here, aro not
more frequently put on by the companies which visit Nelson.
The members of tbe Jane Coombs'
oompany leave Nelson for Rosslnnd
on this evening's train.

TI RAID ON CHINESE
Two Sandon Miners Held For
Unlawful Assembly-
COMMITTED FOR TRIAL
The Outoome of a Recent Attempt Upon
the Fart of Certain Minora to Settle
the Chinese Question By Foroe.
On Wednesday afternoon, Henry
Williams of Sandon was brought down
to the Nelson jail by Constable Forbes,
to await trial on the charge of "being
a member of au unlawful assembly to
carry out a common purpose so as to
cause persons in the neighborhood to
fear that they would disturb the peace
tumultuously, or without reasonable
excuso, cause others to disturb the
peace."
The imprisonment of Willams is the
outcome of the anti-Chinese agitation
whoh has beeu troubling the Slocau
for some I imo past.
The Illinois objected to the presence
of the Mongolians as cooks iu the
camps and measures were adopted to
mn them out aud to prevent further
importation of this class of labor. The
meii evidently went a step too far with
the result that two ot their members,
A. D. MoGiuty aud H. Williams, were
arrested and committed for trial by
Magistrate Sproat of New Denver.

graceful shape was like her mother's at
���sixteen���Indeed, at thirty, Martha Battles "kept her waist" and her beautiful
onus���but Stella was her father's child.
Martha took life on the broad side, laughing when she was merry, weeping when
���she was sail, and spluttering vigorously
���when she was ln wrath. She was a true-
JiOiirtod, loyal creature, and she made
Knee a good wife, and Race loved her
���with all his heart; but there were things
���which he could not say to his wlfo that
faid themselves to his daughter. However, if Martha did not always understand her husband, she always admired
him. To her, his short, thick set figure
���was a model of manly strength; and the
slouch ln his shouldcis (whioh ln truth
be aoqulred bending over the ledgers)
was but the b:mil of a scholar. She had
been a maid of all work, and ber father
had shovelled on the street, and co her
Race was a self-made man*���a succoss
that ought to be ln the newspapers.
Thero bad been a notloe of Race onoe ln
the Falrport Blade, and his picture; lt
was when be ran for alderman and was
defeated. But everyone knew that tbere
wii- nu chance for his party ln the ward
when he ran, and no mortal, unless lt
Were bis wife, had expooted that the
heavens would fall and his party's candidate be elected. The editor always alluded to him as the "successful grocer
(mil popular man, Horace Battles, Esquire." Mrs. Battles bought eight ooples
iif the paper, seven of whioh she sent
away, The eighth copy was laid ln the
leaves of the family Bible, at the page
recording the births of the children���only
two, these were Stella's aod that of the
little boy who died. He had been named
after Mr. Wells; and ln the family'Bible,
after the line, "Died, May 18, 189 ,
aged three years and five months," ln
Knee's handwriting, not so round and
firm us usual, there lay on the page a
sprig of dried llllies of the valley from
tho flowers that Wells had sent.
"Poor father," said Stella. It was the
Inadequate expression of a great many
thoughts. In a moment sho went on:
"Now, ma, don't you say no, I'm not
going to graduate. I'll let Bessie Page
read mv piece; and I'll get some good
excuse so 1 won't be there. I'll write
aunty about that plaoe she said she could
get for me for the summer teaohlng those
children���the folks were to go away ln
June���and I'll take lt; and Instead of
being a drag on pa, maybe I can help a
little���"
Mrs. Battles had listened with quick
Intakes of the breath, between a sob and
A snort, but at this lust she exploded.
"Well, Stella Battles, do you think
we're going to let you go off as a nursery
governess when you've got a pa and a
ma and a home, and are the only chlok
or child we've got in the world? And as
for giving up graduating, 1 won't hear
of it. Why, I've been thinking about it
fnr a year, and putting aside money,
too; and your pa wouldn't take It neither; for I did offer lt to him to pay the
insurance���knowing how frightened he
Is of fire���and says he, 'No, Mattle, noj
it ain't anything else on earth I'd take
it for. It's the only time she'll ever
graduate,' says your pu, 'and let her
have tho good o[ it and look nioe as the
rest. See here, Stella, ilon't you begin to
snifile, there's your pa this minute���he
u-siiiilingl"
Mrs. Battles dressed her face ln determined radiance, as example, before she
opened the door. Battles came home by
���Imply mounting the stairs, the grooory
lieing in the lloor below. His daughter
thought how light Ills step used to sound,
und how bis whistle of the last poular
air always used to precede him. Now, the
only sound was of a step that dragged
But he was trying to smile as he entered.
Buttles was a short, rotund, little mun,
who made his round face the rounder by
two scraps of sandy whisker on his jaw.
He wore those because Harcourt T. Wells,
on whom as man and merchant he
formed himself, always wore side-whiskers. He had a freckled face and very
faint eyebrows and white teeth that
Unshed whon he smiled, and his eyes
were rather wide apart, giving an expression of open-heartedness and frankness. When ho spoke, his voice was low
and pleasantly modulated; but were he
tickled Into laughter, tho mirth rolled
out of him in loud, whole-souled peals.
That day Stella wondered when she
beard her father laugh. She wished hor
mother had not said: "I've some good
news for you, pal" She caught tho instant gleam of his eyes and the falling
of his face at tlie end of the sentence;
and although he kissed Stella most tenderly and Baid in the heartiest way,
"That ls good news; I'm proud of you
daughter; ami how many in the class,
twenty-five, mother? Well, Weill" still
Stella felt that the news that he had
hojied to hoar wus different. In a minute
ho added: "WaHn't that Mrs. Leroy I
saw coming here tills morning? What did
she s:iy about the strlko?"
"Sho said Ijoroy was cum Ing in to see
you this afternoon, but she wanted you
not to say so to any ouo. She said they
had a meeting last night, but���" "Did
thev declare the strike off?" asked Raoe,
eagerly.
Mrs. Unities shook her head. "They
voted Hurry down. It was that Bellalr,
Tho men do be bo taken with his talking!"
"Then there's no show of the strike's
ending," said Battles. He gulped down
something and drank hia scalding hot
coffee until tho tears camo; but be made
so pour a pretence of eating that his
wife cried at him presently, saying that
he ate no more than a sparrow, and she
was discouraged to cook.
"Well, I'm sick." said Race, his
gloomy eyes on his saucer; "what I see
makes me sick. Johnny O'Brien's baby
died this morning, and Johnny made a
kind of coffin for it out of some boxes I
let him have And Rhodes gave him some
white paint. To think of how Johnny
used to set and talk about that baby.
And he oouldn't even buy lt a casket 1
And tbe Wheelans, they ain't got shoes
on their feot, and the Jcnners have sold
their cabinet organ; lt makes me sick to
stand there behind the counter and hear
such things. Besides���I got an offer for
tho horse and wagon, and I guess I'll
have to let them go." He was uneasily
aware of tho consternation on the women's faces in spite of his stare at his
plate. He went on, desperately: "Nor
that ain't all; I'll have to send Danny
away."
"Oh, fatherl" cried Stella, "Poor
Danny he's so stupid He'll never get
another job, and he's so willing and
faithful."
"And what will his grandmother do,
Horace Battles?" orled his wife.
"I don't know," snid Race. "It's got
to this, ma; we're llko folks on a Bhlp-
wreok, we're only trying to save our-
r?lves. I can't even raise the 95 a week
fur Danny's wages; It's all I. oan do to
pull through with my own skin whole.
Thoy   do  say   that   there's a  oarload of
attr men coming; In that case the men
will have to git out of town, and there
ain't much chance of me collecting ui y-
thlng on the aocounts, for what with tne
8xpense of moving and all, they'll be all
broke up, every mother's son of them. I
don't see any way outl"
"Well, I guess we shan't starve 1" said
Mrs. Battles; "but that Swede family
round the oorner, they fairly ain't got
enough to eat���and seven children undor
twelve���It's awful; I oouldn't help send
lu j them in some stew; I put in lots of
potatoes and onions, and steamed over
some hunks of bread, so the meat went
a long way. Why, Raoe, those children
glared at the dish���like wolves I I think
that Bellalr ought to be hung." At tbe
beginning of the fight lt had been Cochrane to whom Mrs. Battles hnd wished
a felon's doom; but the good woman
ohanged front with an unruffled conscience, meaning only good wili towards
her neighbors.
"I'm glad you took them ln something. I wish you'd take the O'Brlons
ln a bite, if you can fix lt so thoy won't
notloe."
"You don't mean they are at that
pass I"
"I don't know when any of us will
get there," groaned Race, pushing his
chair baok and making for the door. But
at the door he oame back. "Don't think
I ain't pleased and proud at what
you've done, Stella," said he, his hand
on her shoulder. "And It's a great com
fort to know that oome what may you've
got your education."
"Oh, pa, I wish I oould help you!"
oried Stella, with a ohoke ln her throat.
He kissed her, hut something ln his own
throat prevented his answering; and so
he went heavily down stairs to the shop
and Danny.
The clerk was only a lumpish boy, at
whom the customers wen continually
girding because he made so many mistakes; but he had a* kind of dogged
honesty and faithfulness that Race
valued, and be was the sole support of
an old grandmother, who prayed for the
Battles every day. Danny looked up at
Race's step with the glimmer of a smile;
he had cleaned the molasses oorner and
waited for the grocer's surprise. But
Raoe did not see the humble offering of
toll, he was plunging at his business.
"Danny, I've got something to say to
you,'' he began, as if primed for a reproof, and he ended with the bald statement that he should have to dismiss the
lad at the week's end, It waa a great
relief to have Danny merely say, "Ves,
sir. I know times are hard." But It waB
less of a relief to see the muscles of his
neck moving as he hastily walked off,
and to be sum that he had been crying
when- he oame buck, No one came into
the store. Race looked out on the street
and sat drearily conning over his own
plight. His heart was like lead. He could
look out and see the tidy little yards ami
the windswept macadam and the men
Bitting idly on their steps for the most
part, albeit a few were patching up their
sheds or fences and some lawn mowers
were rattling through the llttlo front
yards. A stranger would have noticed
only a protty, shady street, but he saw
the empty window where the Jenners'
oablnet organ had stood, and he remembered how Ned Mueller hnd meant tu
paint tbe house, which stood dingy
brown and would wait a long time now
for the paint-brush. He felt not only hit
own nnxiety and pain, but tho smother
of all the misery about him. A wagon
dashed round tbe corner, a large truck
drawn by two great Norman bays with
shining harness. Thn letters on the side
jumped at his eyeB���"Harcourt X. Wells
& Co." How many, many times had he
watched wagons like those fruin thn
corner with almost the luxury of pro
prletorshlp. "Gettin' richer overy day!"
ho would chuckle to himself, and plod
along, beaming. Now hts heart contracted
at the Bight and the feeling that* he no
longer could exult in Wells' grandeur as
ln something part his own. Wells hnil
been tho grocer's hero, worshipped from
his business principles to ills whiskers.
The times when Battles would cull to
pay for his groceries were proud moments
to him. He would saunter into the great
store, nodding here and ' there to the
clerks, who all know him, and ask, in a
careless voice, "Old man in?"���just as li
he had not ohosen tho hour of tho day
most likely to seo Wells in his office.
Then he would puss the card of "No
Admittance," cocking his eye at it as he
passed, and trusting that there was some
stranger present to view his confident
entry, and walk up to the head of the
firm's desk with "Well, here I am again,
Mr. Wells." It was a standing joke that
Wells should Bay, "After an extension,
Race, I suppose"" and he should answer,
"After a reeipt in full, I guess." They
always both laughed, and then would
follow n chat of a few moments. Mr.
Wells' opinions on matters of political
moment were sure to get the best circulation ln Race's giving. "Well, I wus
talking with Harcourt T, Wells and he
snid," eto. Thus would tho words of the
oracle be repoated over Race's counter.
Wells, having no honorary title���a secret
grief to hiB admirer���Race always gave
him his name ln full; lt was never
"Wells" or "Mr. Wells," but always
"Huroourt T. Wells." lt goes without
saying that Wells' politics were Race's.
That he would evor oppose Harcourt T.
Wells was a catastrophe too awful for the
follower's Imagination to compass. And
hero ho was In the thick of it. "But I
oouldn't do no different 1" groaned Haco,
sinking his head on his hard palms. "I
couldn't go back on tho boys."
Honry Leroy, presldont of tho Falrport
Labor Congress and foreman In the foundry of tho Coohrane Plough Company,
was Race's familiar friend. The men in
the works were mostly his neighbors and
oustomers. Where was he to look for custom were he to drivo them away? And
he had the acuter form of sympathy
whioh springs from eye-knowledgo. It is
ono thing to read in the papers that
strikers are suffering, qulto another to
see the sowing-machine of the Sprlggs'
trundled down the steps, and to watch
Dick Spriggs' wife (who always sent a
plate over when sho fried doughnuts) go
baok with her apron to her oyes; or
Johnny O'Brien, who used to Ira full to
wearlncsB of funny stories ulwut his baby,
begging the street commissioner for work
on the sewer that he might pay for the
baby's funoral. Raco not only knew
what deoent, Industrious fellows many of
the Coohrane mon were, ho knuw how,
all winter, the wages had beon pared
and pared until the men were fretted
into a panic, seeing no end. He had
heard ln Swedish, German nnd Irish dialects all about the obnoxiow new
"bosses" and tho uew rules and tne petty
oppressions, born quite as much of ignorance as tyranny. Tho grievances that
piok men's pockots and tho grievances
that nettle their pride���Race got them
all, struggling meanwhile to ever quell
prejudice and resentment with appeals
to prudence and "the women folks and
