BOSTOCK'S   FREE   PASS   BILL
WAS   KNOCKED   OUT.
Special to Tlio Tribune.
Ottawa, April 27.—In the house today
Bostock's bill to compel railways to issue
passes to members of tlie seuate and
commons came up for its second reading,
but was killed. Mr. Bostock spoke briefly
in "justification of the bill. He said His
purpose was to dispel the idea that is so
prevalent that raihvay companies issue
passes to legislators iu order to get something in return. Railway men had told
him passes -were issued simply as continuing an old practice and Avithout any
intention ot influencing anyone. As rail-
Avay companies issued passes anyhow, tlie
bill would inflict no hardship upon them,
and in order that members ol' parliament
might legislate intelligently, it was desirable they .should have opportunities to
travel extensively.
Sir Charles Tupper  Avannly attacked
the bill, and asked Avhether Mr. Bostock's
purpose Avas to  make Canada an object
of contempt and  the laughing stock of
the world.    If there Avas any. excuse for
the bill it Avould be different, but the -railways'of Canada -were in the habit of extending   the   courtesy   of passes  to  all
legislators, Avithout regard to party, and
no   one   considered   the   acceptance   of
passes   in  any Avay   influenced   the recipients.    The raihvays-in issuing  passes
Avere  consulting  their  oavu interests in
giving members of parliament an  opportunity to see the country and   its   progress and the  good work  the  railways
themselves Avere  carrying  on.    Proceeding, sir Charles said the  bill was an infringement on   private  rights,  and the
farce might as-Avoll be completed by providing  for free tickets for'dining cars.
He said the house had the power, but not
,,the  right, to  use  the 'property-;of   any
corporation, or convert it to  their  own
use.■'"-. '': V / .-V
Sir Wilfrid Laurier said  he could not
agree"'with the principle of the bill.    The
jn'oposition Avasone of such a far-reaching   character   that   tlie   house   should
pause before enacting it.    The property
of a raihvay AAras its oavu.   If it preferred
to, giAre passes  it Avas all right;  but to
coinijcl it to do so was... a -.different question.    The English  practice Avas  to pay
tlie   most absolute   respect:vto'.',private
rights. ' Sir  Wilfrid agreed  that passes
did not influence members of i>aiiiameiit,
but    he   said   ^public    confidence   was
touched with respect to the use of passes
when inil cage f\vas ^accepted.    He admitted ^heirniightbe grounds forVcohsider-^

E. Nelson Fell, mine manager at the
Athabasca, and representative in Kootenay of the British Columbia & New Find
Goldfields Corporation, Limited, was at
tlie Phair last oA'cning. In discussing the
deal wliich the latter company hits made
upon,tlie Dandy, Starlight, Great Eastern
and-other claims on Toad mountain, Mr.
Fell explained that the-British Columbia
<fc New Kind Corporation had not purchased the'properties in question,but had
taken a six 'months' --Avorking bond upon
them.
The deal avms negotiated by A. E. liand
while he Avas in England recently. It
includes eighteen claimsin all, which form
practically a solid block of mineral claims,
extending from the Silver King mine Avell
down forwards the saAvmill betAAreen the
Hall Mines traimvay and tlie creek. As to
the conditions of the bond Mr. Fell declined to speak, saAre that they required,
the corporation to expend a certain
amount of money in the deArelopment of
the claims during the life of the-bond.
The corporation has the right to do the
Avork upon any of the claims in the group,
but as the Dandy has had the greater
amount of Avork done upon it, it'will probably receive the bulk of the expenditure. Mr. Fell Avill have charge of the
development, and he proposes within
thirty days to put a force of from fifteen
to twenty-five men at Avorkin the Dandy
mine and test the property as they can
within the period covered by the bond.
The Dandy, he says, is in such shape that
practical, mining hiay be commenced almost immediately. The ore is also de-
si red.at the Hall Mines smelter and he
has already made AreryfaArorable arrangements for the delivery of all ore
taken out during development, the Hall
Mines taking delivery of the same at the
Daudy dump;-?

The Canadian Pacific and Great Northern railways are -making :a race to secure
filie best locatipii "for a rtljhvay* in the
Lrtrdo district, to the north Of Jiootenay
lake, If'qr tlfe past twb weeks" the Can-
a"diiliiJ?upifipoliap had ii forpp. p| .eiigi-
ne<jr$.-»•§ work loc-ttiiig „ a IJijp froni the
old"tdwiisite of Luixlb to tlie 'lower, end qf
Trout lake. It was generally untlei'stpod
tliat work wpuld be commenced op the
loAvpr pud of tlie branch Spiiie tinie this
Suinmer, but during tlie past Aveek the
Canadian Pacific officials began to fear
that the Great Northern. .might get into
the district ahead of them, aiid it AAras
decided,to throAV a gang of men upon the
Lardo end of the branch at oiice.
J. E. Poupore, of the contracting firm
of Poupore & McVeigh, accordingly left
Nelson yesterday with a creAv of thirty
men. So far, but fourteen miles of the
line have been located and no cross-sectioning has been done. There is said
tb be considerable suoav upon the ground,
so that the Avork Avhieh can be done at
present Avill be restricted to slashing out
a portion of the right-of-AATay.
So far as the Canadian Pacific intentions could be learned yesterday, the first
thirty-five miles of the Avork will be got
ready as soon as ' possible. Engineer
Walkem of Vancouver Avill probably
reach Lardo next Aveek and begin cross-
sectioning, aud as soon as they can place
300 men upon the grade to good advantage Poupore & McVeigh will engage that
number.    They   have   a   transportation
arrangement Avith'the Canadian Pacific
A\iiich Avill enable them to dnuv men
from any point in Kootenay south of
Revelstoke and east of Rossland. The
scale of Avages upon the Avork Avill be $2
per day.
Should tlie CapadiaU Paeifip ihake gqpd

tically all the supplies Avill- be-purchased
lierpj Avhicli will result! iii clpariiig out
the.stocksiyhieh have accumulated during the past .year. £t appears to lie geii-
eritliy undferstood that nothing Avill be
dque for some time oil tho upper end of
the road. It will be a much more expensive piece of AVork than the Kootenay
lake end,and its tlie Canadian Pacific can
have no fear of competition oii tlie upper
end, there is nothing to fear from  delay.

THE PUBLIC WORKS COMMITTEE
AWARD   A   CONTRACT.
At the meeting of the public works
committee held yesterday afternoon,
Josias Thompson Avas aAvarded the contract for seAver construction, his tender
being the loAvest. His figure for the Avork
Avas $085. and the nearest tender to his
Avas that of Campbell & Deacon at $1135.
Tlie tender Avas accompanied by a sum of
$250 as security.
When the request of John Hastie and
others in the Hume Addition, for permission to connect Avith the city's Avater-
Avorks system, Avas brought up alderman
Thomson said he did not see Avhat ob-'
jection could be raised against the granting of the request if three of the petitioners Avere Avilling to become-responsible to
, the city for -oayiiient for all the Avater
use^d.
Mayor Neelands asked AAiiat the object
Avas in dealing Avith three ofthe petitioners on behalf of all the others, and in reply alderman Fletcher said that the city
had no poAver to collect rates in the
addition.
On motion of alderman Thomson, seconded by mayor Neelands, it A\*as decided
to extend the city main to.'the eastern
limit of the city and permit the petitioners to- make connection, upon the condition that they pay the ordinary house
rate until a Avater meter is secured.
The communication of Messrs. Fell &
Gregory, solicitors for the Nelson Land &
Improvement Company, Avas then taken
up. In this the solicitors asked for a
settlement of the difficulty in connection
Avith the' expropriation by the' city of the
land used for the city reservoir. They
termed the city's offer, of-$750 for the
land as ridiculous. . - '
Alderman Fletcher said that he considered the offer of $750 - as more than
the lots iu question ^-Avere AArdrth. The
reservoir encroached upon six lots, and in
his opinion they Avere not AArorth more
than $300. At his suggestion the committee decided to report in favor of going to arbitration OArer. the .question of
the, value ofthe lots and that the Nelson
Land & ImproA-ement- Company name
its arbitrator as soon as - possible. * The
committee further decided that,.with respect-to the lots claimed to be - damaged
.by the water AA**orks flume, the council
should agree to moAre the flume upoiiithe
street as soon as any of the-lots Avere oe- _
.cupied.    <   . ...      ;/,, VV'  '■ *' .

The" committee" decided' to give ThedftvF"
! Madson Avater connection for lots  18,-'19„-gfe-
and  20  iu  block  100, at a cost of: $100,. ',
provided the applicant contributed' $25.' '
The city engineer Avas instructed to re-,
port upon tho cost  of  giA'ing the  samp-'  v-
. ling AA'orks water connection.
The committee decided to proceed at
once with the laying of the* water mains,
in Addition A, in the section recommended by tlie medical health officer.
This AArork consists" of two blocks on Gore,
street, from Kootenay to.Ward street,
and on Stanley street from,Gore north to
a point "above Houston street.
The city  engineer  explained   that tho'
former   council   dug   the" trenches    for
Avater pipes byday labor at a cost of seA'en
cents per foot, and that the  pipe  laying
and back filling cost seA'en cents more He
thought  that  the city  could not secure    .    L
such favorable terms  by tender, and "recommended that  the  Avork  be  done by =
day  labor, and   that  John Muuroe, who
performed the work before, should again
have charge of it. y

Toronto, April 27,—The Globe says :
" We are assured the Kettlp River Rail-
Avay bill will not be abandoned* but it
seemed better" Vrto leave it oArer until
another session, when" Mr. Corbin Avould
have more time to attend to the matter:,
than go ahead with it in his absence. It
is expected the bill Avill come up next
session, and it is the confident belief of
its promoters that the feeling in favor of
the measure Avill then be stronger even
than it is at present."

Ottaava, April 27.r—The Conservative
members from Ontario* to the number.of-
about thirty, gathered in caucus this*.
morning. The meeting Avas called for organization purposes. Robert Birmingham Avas present, and this goes to shew
that the attempt to oust him from the
position as the organizer has so fair failed. Nothing Avas seen of A. W. Wright,
the candidate of Clarke Wallace . and Sir
Mackenzie Bowell, for the position of
organizer. The political prospects of the
party Avere discussed and considerable
Arariety of opinion expressed as to Avhat
should be done to rehabilitate the party
in the province of Ontario. It is a pretty
general feeling that Mr. Haggart can not
be regarded as a leader alul that Dr.
Montague must not bo so regarded.
There does not at present seem to be any
one in the way of Clarke Wallace.
"the committee agreejl lo.
it Avas decided to nut in a   catch basin   *

treiSe.Tbries in parliament and extreme
Tofy» journals are not elamoring for judicialIiivestigation ■ because they feel- that
the/libhbr and interests of thd country
have been injured by corruption and
maladministration in. the Yukon. It is:
not even because they desire to see" the
guilty Yukon officials punished and a
bettei* order of things established at
Dawson. It's Sifton they're after. And
they are after Sifton becaiise they knoAV
that if Sifton is discredited the whole
goyernment Avill be discredited. In a
Avord, milch of the clamor against the
Yukon administration conies from mere
partisanship, not patriotism. The Mail,
and Empire deserves credit for frankly
confessing the true character of much of
the agitation in connection Avith the
Yukon business. But that is not to say
tliat the government can safely ignore
tho clamor.. To do so Avmild be interpreted as a sign of weakness.   Probably
the opposition is hoping that the 'government;"' Avill ignore the agitation .and do
nothing. That Avould be a good subject
for stump oratory. If the government
is.;conscious that it has;;nothing tp fear
froin an impartial ahi thprpugh judicial
inyestigatipn, it cAYpuld strengthen its
own position and put Hs enemies to cpn-
fusipn/by. ordering such anVinyestigatioii.

A   PLAZA   MINER.
IJocanse ho was down to his last peso ifc
by no menus followed tliat he was looking
I'or work.    J to was looking at the passers-
by  in the Plaza.    it was easier, unci in
Mexico the easiest xvay is the best.    lie
lounged back  on one of the benches, under an orange-tree in full flower, and listened to   the birds singing in among the
roses and jasmine back of him.     Women
shuffled   by—filLhy old hags and young
ones with big eyes and features of bronze
statues—carrying  on their heads wafcer-
,   jars or baskets   full of vegetables  and
flowers, meat and lard.    Peons, in skintight pantaloons and bright /.arapes, all
wearing the inevitable sombrero, jauntily   tipped   up   behind,   loitered   along,
dragging  their sandaled   feet,   or sank
down to do/.e upon the benches.    Ladies
went by   occasionally.    Gwin   surveyed
them from tho tops  of their ill-arranged
heads   to  the soles of their wide shoes,
wondering   what   particular   untidiness
the  black shawl might cover  for  each,
and searching still, as  he had been doing
since ho had come  to the country a year
before,  for a beauty among tho upper
classes.    He quite longed for the sight of
the genuine thing—of some gringo who
would step like a queen, in whose figure
there would be. grace, and in whose face
intelligence.
And presently the longing was satisfied. She came toward him, crossing the
_ cobbles of tho street, lifting her skirt and
showing afoot that outdid, if not the
traditions, at least the facts of tho arched
instep of the sen ori ta. She was certainly beautiful. Her hair shone in-the sunlight, and her eyes, when she raised thorn
to look up  at tlio cathedral  towers—her
- eyes!—but Gwin*thought he had'never
seen the like of them. He sat up with
the ' most energetic movement he had
known iu many weeks, and watched her.-
Jn Mexico it is civil to stare.    And Gwin
- made the nipst of the license.    ,
-    She came on_ directly past him iioav—
the beautiful   American—and tho won-
v derfnl eyes  rested on him with a-glance
-. of   recognition   of   a' countryman. - She
Avas talking tc> a man who Gwin hoped-i-
for no * particular reason beyond  an  in-,.
, natclove  ofthe  eternally lit—might be
her father.    And chiefly because'he had
uothing^to do just then, had had nothing
to do for the past half-year, and had no
prospects   of   anything ' to do for some
months ahead, he set about iiudhfg  out.
The gringo has not yet ceased to bo an
object o*f interest and comment in Mexi-
co.    Gwin walked down .to the station ;
ancL'a compatriot, between expressions in
profane    manner    co-accruing    Mexican
^b^sin^slTicytirod^iTi^noral andTai 1 roueI
employees in particular, gave hiiu tho information he wanted
"Those people? " Oh, that's a Mr. Merc
ed his frank, boyish brow to suggest a
brown study, a preoccupation so deep
that he had almost run into the plutocrat
before he saw him. Then he raised his
hat with a cheerful recognition, cut somewhat, short by other concerns.
"Has a man named Storms [jcm-u here
yet?" lie asked of tho (hiu German who
was putting aside Times and Heralds and
Suns for regular subscribers.
The tone had a ring of business which
startled the German and made Mr. Meredith prick up his oars the while ho read
headlines. Next to tho strains of his
national anthem, no sound so stirs the
soul of the American in foreign parts as
that Oi a sharp, decided Yankee voice.
The German said that, »o far as he
knew, no man named Storms had been in.
Gwin wondered if the fellow expected
him to do things on Greaser principles,
and to wait half a day, losing time and
money. And then he went back to the
door. There was another American
there, besides the owner of the private
car. Gwin knew him. A little furitive
a.s to the eyes, a little seedy as to tho
clothes, a little ragged as to tho beard;
but benign and guileless withal.
I "I say," said Gwin; "do you know a
I fellow named Storms, Bennett?"
Bennett shook his head and answered,
"Nit," indifferently.
"He has come dowu here," Gwin went
on, "to see about my report on the mine."
Bennett looked up and met Gwin's
eyes, and recognized a neophyte—one
who, driven perhaps by need, perhaps by
natural tastes, was about to join, the
brotherhood.
"If I report favorably, his people will
buy," Gwin continued; "that is, they will
if my company consents to sell at a
quarter of a million—which  I  shall not
advise.    Tliat  El  Rico lode " he had
not hesitated for the name, and he began
to enjoy liis own iirvcution.    Ho wont on
recklessly,  for  he  could    feel  that  the
owner  of  the private  car had stopped
turning over the sheets of his newspaper
aud Avas listening.    And his speech blossomed forth in stopes," Hako rock, running
ground, stulls, dips and cribs—all'the vocabulary     of.  his ..theoretical    mining
course. * But over and anon he  recurred
to the richness of tho El Rico vein.   -
-    "T  shall advise  against a sale," ho, repeated.    "Iii my opinion,* my  company
can,  by a small  expenditure,- realize a
largo,amount; timbering will not be  expensive—drift-gravel   ground/ largely—
and it  is  my  belief it.  will   prove  the
richest mine in Mexico."
,, The plaza miner, was- good   natured.
lie  a greed,, and* helped along tlio effect
by references toGwiu's unusual experience
and honesty.    Then  he -.withdrew,  and
'Gwin pulled'out his watch aud • frowned.'
He tapped his  foot  impatiently on tho
pavement, and his nice boyish face  grew
black.    The plutocrat read* his paper and
cast glances at Gavui between  the paragraphs.    Then he approached.
It began with the question as to Iioav
long you have been hero, aud ended with
an invitation to lunch in the private car.
Gwin considered and counted his minutes,
ancl decided that he might spare the
time." He accepted.
~~ It A\-as"ainuririacseent~dream
the laud is most beautiful, and least visited. Tliey broke their Avay- through
floAvers, pink, Avhite, purple, blue, scarlet,
and yelloAA1*; the blossoms brushed against
their hands and met across the pommels.
The trees wore gay with blue morning-
glory and great tufts of orange and scarlet parasite. After that they began to
climb mountains, and Gwiir began to
wish himself Avell out of it. • He had
started without knowing-just.-why, half
recklessly, half to see what would happen.    He A\ras seeing now.
In rather less than a week he Avas
thinking all day of a girl—it-might even
bo that she was thinking of him; he had
taken in a kindly disposed man—lied to
him Avhile he broke his bread; he himself
was a fraud, and if he carried it out to
the end would be a criminal; if he did
not, she would knoAV. She would know
in any case,sooner or latter. He groaned as he grabbed his horse's mane v\lnle
they  scrambled up the mountain side.
They  came  to the mine at length,  as
many another plaza  miner and  his prey
had done before them.    There Avas a timbered entrance and some yards of tunnel.
Gwin  had  lost his taste for the thing.
But   the   impossibility   of turning   and
squarely "facing Avith the truth this man
Avhom he had brought thirty-odd leagues
on horseback Avas manifest.   He enlarged
convincingly on   the  wealth in  beyond
that black hole.    He  dug out a handful
of soft rock with his  knife, and  pointed
to silver where none was.    His face was
more scarlet than sunburn.    lie lied Avith
that   glibness   which   arises   from   not
knowing Avhere your next inspiration is
coming from.    And he  was  immensely
convincing.
"But, of course, I shall have to have
my own experts," Mr. Meredith said, half-
apologetically.
"Of course," agreed GAvin, briskly,
Avith a sinking heart.
Ancl then they rode back. Gwin Avas
somewhat silent. Ho Avas figuring upou
how a man who has nine silver dollars in
the world can best get out of a country.
But. he ceased to calculate wheu Miss
Meredith Avelcomed him with tears in her
eyes—tears of thankfulness for his having kept her father in safety. Gavui
rather encouraged her belief that they
had ridden into the open jaws of danger,
ancl accepted an invitation to run up to
Mexico on the private car.
A day aud a half took them to tho city;
and a day.took Gwin and  Miss Meredith
far along the rose-strewn path  of fancy.
Gwin had no such intention in the morning, ' and  by   night   he had   told   Miss
Meredith that he loA'cd her.    It AA'as  all
part of the chance game.   -
,    They sat in the moonlight upon the
back'steps of  the  car, rushing along a
levellieight—a plateau from  Avhieh they
seemed to look down on mountain ranges
and up to only the vapory white smoke,
from the, wood-fed engine, ancl  the stars'.
For  two  hours  GAvin forgot all  things
save that a beautiful girl loved*:him ; a
girl who AA-as to him not only herself but
the embodiment of all.he had left behind
—of college, of companionship, of hope
for the future, of honest work, of homo
and  civilization.    For those more than
for the great, soft eyes she raised to him ;■
more/than. for  tho "cold" little hand she'
slipped iuto £iis, he loved- her.    Aud he
thrust aside memory—the memory, which
whispered steadily, like, tho, roar of the
wind in his ears—that life AA'as not all tonight; that tomorrow must come—witli
the experts. -
The exports sat in their, oflicc, Avaiting.
Thejr had already waited an hour and'a
half, and making every allowance for the
custom ofthe 'country, tlie time seemed
to them too long. '.'Mr.-Meredith-drew
out his watch ancl frowned, very much
as GAA-in had done in front of the American news agency ten days before. Miss
Meredith alternated between a map
which, hung against the .-whiteAvashed
Avail and the: window. '   y
"Mr. -?" began one of the experts.
"Mr. Gwin," the plurocrat supplied ungraciously.
"Mr. Gwin may have been detained, or
there may have been some misunderstanding as to the place of meeting."
Mr. Meredith resented the flicker of a
smile that played in the expert's eyes.
It made him vaguely uneasy. He did
not answer.
Another half hour lagged by. Expansion, the "open door," the future of
China, the Americanizing of Mexico, had
risen for discussion, together with lesser
topich-, aud'had been laid aAvay. There
Avas a long pause.
"May 1 ask"—suggested the expert,
suavely, balancing a pencil judiciously
betAveen his fingers—"may I ask if Mr.
GAArin Avas recommended to you by responsible parties.
The situation AA'as not so new to the
experts as it appeared, from tho deepening purple of his face, to be to Mr. Meredith. He explained majestically. The
flickering smile greAv into a steady
tAvinkle.
"And you say Mr. GAvin took you to
see the mine. Do you knoAV Avhere it
was situated and what was its appearance?"
Mr. Meredith explained that also—
rather less majestically—for the smile
had spread to the lips of both experts.
They looked at one another, ancl then one
spoke.
"Well, Mr. Meredith," he began, leaning
back in his chair and reaching out for a
paper-cutter wherewith to tap the desk,
"1 do not Avant to do the young gentleman any injustice, of course, but if I
Avero you I shouldn't set my heart upon
seeing him again."
Ho was a practical man, but, he knew
that the girl had turned from the study,
of the map and that her face was A\rhite.
He hesitated.
"Well?" asked Mr. Meredith, sharply.
"Well, my dear sir, the mine you describe is not entirely unknoA\rn to us.      It
has gone by various names—as many as
there arc miners who conduct their operations and observations from the benches
of the plazas in that part of Mexico. The
right name is 'La Couchita'—or A\ras before  the  misguided  men 'avIio  tried  to
work it abandoned it as abaci job.    I.am
sorry, Mr. -Meredith, I am very sorry, but
I fear Ave must add Mr:' Gwin's  name to
the already fat'list of plaza miners."
.  And  in  the silence that folloAved he
glanced-toward. the - window,  where a*
shaking hand AA'as playing a tattoo unevenly upon the pane.

ditli. Big gun of some sorb on some rowl
in the States. Lots of stiilf. JLJoro in a
private car. Wants to buy mines and
tilings--another darn fool tliat thinks
the Land of the Monte/.iinias is Koing to
makeliis eternal fortune. I'll bet some
plaza miner socks ' it to him—and I hope
\he does."
The oft-repeated quien sabe--device of
bhc-lancl—had rasped his Lemper against
all mankind.
"Got a party with him?"
"Daughter, I believe." And then tlio
disgruntled one launched into tlio details
of his owu woe.
Gwin listened. Ho had nothing else to
do, and no farther interest in tho tourists. That -wasi what liethought thoii,as
he agreed amiably with all that tho fertile tongue of "his iufOriiianfc c*o\dd say
about the Greaser, and figured icily tlnvt'
oiie last silver piece ill his sido pocket.
B\*it upon the day* "following ho though*£,
otherwise. For the silver pieco luul
dwindled to oiie mucli smaller, and he did
riot fancy tho sort of dinner that dos
reales will buy. Therefore, Whell he
wandered up to the American wows^agoii*
cy—which, was also . bar-room and ex-
cliange-^with the purpose of finding out
if there was anything new, and when he
saw Mr. Meredith, evidently urged by
a like purpose, standing in the doorway,
a thought flashed upon Mm. The owner
Of a private car, a stranger to the land
and to the manifold ways of making an
honest living therein of his own countrymen, a would-be disposer of much earthly
• treasure, the, father of a'* beautiful
daughter.
Gwin made his step brisk, and pucker-
He sat
back in the upholstered seats, and held
his mouth open. The plums fell into it.
Miss-Meredith was as amiable as she was
beautiful. The plutocrat evinced a
marked interest in miues. -The Chinaman cook's hot biscuits breathed of home
ancl fche past in their odorous steam. And
Mr. Meredith asked him to come again.
"Wo shall be here a week, possibly.
And if your man Storms don't come ,to
Lime, I might like to tako a look at the
Rico myself," he said. _
Hfcorms did not come to time, and Gwin
took Mr. Meredith to the mine. He raised
ten dollars and engaged the horses aud
dressed himself in the charro suit tliat he
had bought in the first days,Avhon he had
been flush and all things had been new
and picturesque. Tho suit was picturesque still. The short jacket set off his
bi'Oild slioulderS and the skin-tight pantaloons Iijs height; the sombrero added
stern daring to his open countenance,
while tlieknife in its leather case* -hanging from his' belt, and.the revolver showing from his hip-pocket wrought the
effect to its highest, pitch. ''y
Miisa Meredith—who was to stay with
li'iends tit the hotel during her father's
abserico<—showed her admiration. She
let Gwin hold her hand rather long and
hard; and undor the influence of the
bowie-knife and revolver, she trembled a
little and raised her beautiful eyes to his.
"You won't let anything happen to
father?" she begged. Gwin reassured
her. He wondered how much of the
anxiety might reasonably be portioned off
to "father." And he found himself
wondering that pretty steadily as he
rode with the man of Pullman cars beside him, sitting uneasily the scrawny
little horse.
