THE FIFTH OF NOVEMBER!"
ELECTION DAY thin year happen to hit a day and datr of
curloua interest in the annals of our English forefathers.
In England to-day is Ouy Fawkes' Day, tho anniversary of
the deliverance of the nation on Tuesday, Not. 6, 1605, from one of
i he most appalling political plots ever conceived.
The famous Gunpowder Plot grew out of the extreme and unlooked-for
seventy of Jamea I. toward his Catholic subject, who had
very reason to expect from him bettor treatment. The originator
iind prime mover of the scheme was not Ouy Fawke. but Robrrt
Catesby, a man of ancient family and of almost farrat'r. zeal. His
project waa to wipe out the whole Government, King, Iords and
Commons, at one fell aweep. He gathered about him a band of
eatrcr confederates, most of them men of birth and position, .one of
whom brought over from Flanders Ony Fawkes, a fellow of fierco
energy and fanaticism.
Strictest oaths of secrecy wctc sworn. One of the band, Thoma
Percy, who had influence at Court, hired a house adjoining the
Houses of Parliament. Wirh infinite precautions a few of the con
spirators stocked this dwelling with provisions and moved in. No one
waa ever seen to go in or out. For months they toiled at their tre
mendous tack of piercing the enormously thick foundation walls of
the House of Commons. One night, as they worked in stealthy
silence, they heard or fancied they heard the tolling of a bell deep
in the earth under their feet. Terror overcame them until holy
water sprinkled on tlie spot seemed to silence the sound. Then came
a rumbling directly over their heads. All made ready to fly. Fawkes,
however, cautiously investigated and found that the noise came from
a cellar directly underneath the House of Lords occupied by n denier
in coal who was removing his stock.
With carefully disguised eagerness the conspirators made hasto
to hire the cellar from the coal dealer and abandoned the mine.
One by one thirty-six barrels of gunpowder, about a ton and twelve
hundredweight, were secretly stowed away in tha vault. Stone and
heavy pieces of iron were scattered nlioitt to make the explosion more
destructive and the whole piled hili with innocent looking firewood
All this was slowly and painfully accomplished during the enrly j

set for Nov. I, when the King ww to open Parliament in full elite
and all the hiche.-it disgnilaries of the realm would he gathered within
the wall of the doomed building.
Meanwhile one of the chief conspirators had arranged to invite
a company of influential people to assemble at his house in Warwick
shire on Xov. I, as if for n hunting party. Directly the explosion
wnrred the plotters proposed to seize I'rince diaries or the Princes,
Elizabeth, proclaim one of them successor to the throne and dictate
ibe terms of a new Government. Henry I'rince of Wales was ex
jeeted to accompany his father to I lie House of Lords and so lie
blown up with the rest. At the critical moment (iuy I'awkes was
lo touch off a long slow-match leading to the gunpowder, jump into
a boat in the Thames and emlwrk in a ship for Inlanders.
As the fatal day drew near arose the question which brought
about the conspirators' undoing. Jntnjpecting Catholic friends of
those in the plot were sure to le present, at the opening of Parlia
ment. Should they lie warned? Catesby replied with an emphatic
no, urging Hint such unfortunates would be few. and that in any
oaee "rather than that the project should not take effect, if thev wore
as dear to nie as mine own son they also must he Mown up." But
not all the coiif pirators were so Spartan. Sonic daw before Xov. 5
Tiord Motmteagle. brother-in-law of one of the band, received an
anonwnous letter beseeching him as he valued his life not to attend
the coming ceremonies.

well. At o'clock next morning, however, a party of soldiers narchod
to the cellur. seized Fawkes at the door and took him to the Tower.
Torture wrung from him a complete confession. The other con
spirators were pursued and either killed or caught. Trial was speedy,
and on .Inn. 30 nd JO. lfiOti, eight of them were beheaded, their
