Asserting that there was nothing

Joseph Lelter, president of the com
pany, testified yesterday that Wash

He was positive that under present
conditions the company cannot sell gas
at 75 cents profitably. James S. Mcll

resolution introduced by Congressman
Gregg of Pennsylvania.
Much of the matter Included In the

Synopsis of -Chapters Already Published
One stormy night a ship Is wrecked oft
the Scottish tithing village nf lverlachlr,
nnd of all those on board only one man la
rescued. The survivor Is carried to the
cottage of Dominie Dalglelsb, where hla
surprising likeness to Bonnie Prince Char
lie la noted. The aeneatlon la Increaaed
when the man glvea hla name "Charles
Edward Caelmlr" for uch alao waa the
name of the great Stuart Pretender.
There la a. mysterious woman In the vil
lage, named Janet Glen, who hai nothing
to do with her neighbor, and la believed
by them to be In communication with the
Sowers of evil. Janet silently enteri the
omlnle'a cottage, takes one look at the
distinguished atranger and wlthdrawa.
There l another woman who alio la In

of Scotland The atranger la moved,
but refuses to Mate hla Identity.
The Truth About Peggy.
UNDAY morning came as ono of
tho clear, cool September days
which, when they do come make
Scotland a land of romantic
beauty. The sun shono lavishly; the
mists rolled away from the mountains;
the wind died to a riffle, and tho sea
and land lay under a bluish tint. It
was difficult to believe that the town
had been ailame but two hours before
tho sun rose upon tho weekly hold day.
The old parish kirk boll was tolling
with nearness and clearness. Matthew
Melklejobn, who hauled the great ropo
in tho old tower, perspired under his
Sunday coat and fresh linen. If a man
must labor of a Sunday even for tho
Lord tho least he can do Is to keep his
coat on. So Matthew thought.
There were features about the kirk
service that morning that made 8unday
as much of a red-letter day as Saturday
had been. The congregation was at
kirk in unusually full force. Tho
prince, who had returned to DalglelHh'fl
house in tho dawn, whh In thn front new
iin tne uommie ana ..Margaret, and
ne was tno cynosure of all eyes, ills
pesenco in kirk won tho npproval of
the Scots, who, however, honored tho
aacrea caince ana tno man b Banctuary.
Save for the curious eyes tlmt wore
fixed Upon tho royal figures In the front
pew, It was as If he was but a stranger
mit me service seemed to have a
special bearing unon the rjrlr.ee and his
presencs in the kirk. Instead of flu
usual "Old Hundred, the chosen psalm
was tttenty-one "The King In Thy
'.reat sii'.'ngwi. on. LortU" and after
w:ird, tit Rsv. Hu;rh Black preached
. n nmbtglous sermon, choosing his tett
fiom Luke, x.xll, 17- "An 1 they said.

The result of tho sermon was that. In

Wallace wai alone at church. Peggy,

there. Cant George Kllby, sitting Jn
the stranger's pew at tho back of the
church, noted the girl's abpence. nnd
suddenly dUfoveied that the Scots"

dieaiy. He escaped beforo the psalm
Out In the graveyuid he drank In tho
fresh air and sun.hlni for a few min
utes Then ho sat off In the direction
of the rloutoi'g eottago, vhlth wan on
the baclt road of the town near Janet
While Kimv steppes alone with tho
felling of a man who, rolng clandes
tinely to his love, feels that tho count
Is clear, hy did not believe that he wan
playing anv trick upon tho doctor or
stealing anv mui'.'h upon Peggy. In his
hturt the young soldier felt that Tom
Wallace was with linn. Thev were men
of the same stamp, and tnev understood
each other. And Instinct toM him that
Peirgy Wallaio loved him as ho loved
Sho loved him. It only needed his
strength and forcefulness and determi
nation to overcome that peculiar reservo
of hers and make her confess herself
with sudden and complete surrender.
What If sho hnd been silent and distrait
on the previous evening? Ho succeeded
In convincing himself that woman Is
most unapproachable when nearest the
edge of surrender. Now was hlB chance
and he meant to take It and laughingly
apologize to tho doctor when he camo
home from kirk and found
It seemed as if fate had token a
hand In the affair. Kllby had not found
Fitzwllllam upon his return to the fort
on the previous night. And when Kllhv
left for kirk that morning, Fitzwllllam
was still snoring In his quarters. And
now the doctor was at kirk and Peggy
was nlono at home perhaps picking
flowers In tho garden. Also the weath
er seemed to he In the conspiracy of
love nnd love making.
Presently the captain arrived at the
gate to the doctor's flower garden. Tho
sun was beaming warmly on tho beds,
and many a blossom that had almost
dried in the stress of weather was lift
ing Its head and giving forth perfume
with renewed sweet courage.
The cottage seemed untenanted, but
perhaps Peggv was inside, sitting alone,
dreaming alone. It was a day for
dreaming and she must know that he
was coming, sne couin not inn to ien
the nearlng of a heart that was so
yearning In sympamy townra ner own.
Like a schoolboy, he leaned against
the gate. For a moment he enjoyed
the prospect the prospect of the next
half hour. Presently he pursued Mr
lips and whistled a few bars of
"Blaek-eved Susan," his eyes fixed upon
the windows and the front door of tho
doctor's cottage, while the morning sun
bathed the back of his neck with a
sweet, urging warmth.
Ho had hoped that she would coma
out. but the windows and the door re
mained closed, and no Peggy appear
ed. Kllbv laughed to himself. She
know. Sho must hear him whistling.
She must know tho whistler. She was
merely pretending sho did not know, or
hear, or perhaps sho was w lehlng film
from behind a curtain. Instinctively
ho squared his shoulders and looked
Finally he lost patience and tried the
front door with a gentle knock. Getting
no response he moro gentlv tried tho
handle. The door was locked.
Then he camo to the unpleasant con
clusion that Peggy was not at homo
He was quite downcast for a moment.
It was aggravating that the lass herself
should upsot the plans which tho Fates
had so graclouslv arranged. But he was
determined to find her. Where could
she be" It was unusual for her not to
be at kirk. She must either be 111, or
feigning Illness. If she was ill, then
Mie would b In the house, and I r.
Walloce would not be at kirk either.
Dr. Wallace was at kirk. Therefore, shu
must bo feigning Illness.
It whs now U:3n. Kllby knew that
It would bo an hour and a half befoic
Hugh Black got through pounding thu
pulpit. An hour and a half to spate.
Wherever Peggv was. It was certain
Mio would be back beforo the kirk was
TTn nt down on n stone bv the cato
and whistled. It was a very public and'
patent act mis wnistiing at i-eggy
Wallace's gate of a Sunda morning.
But It was Sunday, after all, and all
Inverlachle was In kirk to see the
prince all except the anlshed Pegy,
his own patient self, and a few Impa
tient dogs that howled as tfie volume of
human voices swelled and rolled from
the direction of the parish klrkv
So there was Kllby, sitting by the
..... ... . inn in.,, !
gate In tho comfortable sunshine,
whistling "Black-eyed Susan" and
"Bally In Our Alley" with variations
waiting for Peggv Wallace.
Had he been able to see Pesirv at that
moment his whistling would have
stopped abrtlDtlv. Rhn was in Janet
Glen a house, on her knees by Janet'B
side, and sho was whispering a tale
and seeking counsel of tho elder woman.
Had ho heard tho sum of Janet's nd
vice in the matter confosscd, he would
at least havo left out the groce notes
and variations, for Janet looked Into the
"re tor a long timo ond said:
Tell him your cnntnln. l( In n. man
a good man a strong man."
About an hour later Kllby saw Peggy
fining xowara mm or rather, toward
mo cottage, tor sne aia not seo him.
Her chin was down on her breast and
her hands were clasped, before her. Kll
by saw that somethlngwas amiss. But
he knew that In n. moment hn wonM ml
all things right. He Btood beforo the
gate with a hand on each post, his body
She raised her eyes nnd saw him when
sho was but three paces away. Sho gave
a great start, ob if tho material had
arisen from the ghost of her thoughts.
But she saw his nttltude and understood
Its meaning nt once. Terror assailed
ner the terror of the situation, which
she knew waa about to stand betwoen
them. It had to come, sho knew but
not yet not yet I
!'.Uet .mo P"""' she said, faintly.
"No," he said, smiling.
Ho looked steadily Into her faco ond
instantly compassion overspread his
own the gentle compassion of thn lover.
Peggy!" he said. "Ton havo beon
crMng Oh you poor little woman."
Impulnlvely his arms sought her, to
diaw her :o his broad breast and shlold
her. But sho sprang back with a llttla
civ ot agony and tried to dart past him
through the gate, she got half-wav and
was caught In a pa'r of strong arms.
'"Now," said a gentle but laughing
voice, ill nthrlll wth love. "You must
listen to me I won't let you go until
you have heard me. unites you will
promise not to stir."
"I will llJt-jn But lot me go please!"
He rclauud her, Mimrlscd at th
Pleading In her voice. But she was true
to her promt?, she lcmalned standing,
with her hands clasped bffoie her, her
ejes drooped over l.er crimsoned
He told her his story tho old story.
She listened with Inci easing agitation.
Once sho lifted her eyelids with a llttlo
flutter that disclosed a now light In her
"Peggy, las9. won't you bo mv lass
forever and over?" ho cried In whis
per. "I wnnt to b- hurband to the
sweetest .lttb wlf-J In the world."
"I hey will he coming from kirk," sho
said. "It would not look well. Oh,' sh.
cried, as idle hav the persistence In his
mouth. "I can't marry ; ou -1 can't'"
' I'eggy, don't you love me a little
"Oh, yes, I lovo vou. but "
That was all ho needed. In a moment
hi huj hr tightly In his arms and
nothing In tho world not even the
tongiegatlon of tho parish kirk would
havo mailij him rclcrso her; nothing1
but her own next wordB. uttered in th?
desperation of the situation.
"Let me go! You do not understand
I love you oh, yes' I love you ob I do
not deserve to bo loved myself. But I
cannot marry you. Please do not ask
me any more."
"Why cannot you?" he demanded
quite severely. "You lovo me You
have told It, and I know you do love
me. Why cannot you marry me, then?
I havo the right to ask to know."
"What teason could there bo but one?
I belong to another man."
Kllby took a step back and stared at
"I do not understand," said he stu
pidly. "You love me, yet you belong to
another man. What other man?"
"Major Herbert Fitzwllllam," Bhe said
evenly. But the evenness was the pre
ludo to a storm. The name was hardly
past her lips before her face was pale
and her eyes blazing wide. "And I hate
him hate him hate him! not so much
for what he did, but for what he has
stolen from you Oh. why did you not
como first, George? George' why
didn't you como before ho did? He has
stolen you from me and I can't ever
be happy again!"

TRIAL AT LEAST
E EACH YEAR
Present Test of Sanity Costs
New York Taxpayers
NEW YORK, Juno 23-8overat re
markable facts were developed In the
county court house at Whlto Plains in
the week Just closed during the pre
liminary legal skirmish to determine
whether Harry K. Thaw, the slayer of
Stanford White, tho noted New Yorrt
architect, has regained his reason, and
may be liberated from the 8tate asylum
for the criminal insane nt Matteawan.
Possibly the most amazing develop
ment was tho declaration by Thaw him
self that he expects one trial a year.
This was not mndo by Thaw in court,
but was introduced in evidence through
a lotter tho homicide wrote several
months ago to Governor Dlx and with
held from the public by tho State's
chief executive. In this letter Thaw
"Even thoso who havo spoken most
vehemontly against me grant mo the
right to ono trial of sanity each year,
yet I havo gone almost two years with
out a hearing. I may Inform you that
long beforo this wo should havo had a
hearing had my counsel not been too
much occupied with other business of
ThlB Is highly Interesting In view of
tho circumstances that this 1b Thaw's
third hearing nnd will cost the tax
payers anywhere from 130,000 to $50,000.
AVllllom T. Joromo will receive J10.000
for his services as prosecutor, tho
State's alienists will receive as much
mom, and the detectives are quite likely
to send In bills for several thousand
These sums are but starters on the
long expense list. If Thaw 1b remanded
nnd comes up again next year tho peo
ple will pay the piper a high fee.
All the fuss and great expenditure Is
being made to determine what on the
face of It would seem a most simple
fnct It 1b whether Thaw Is Bone. If
he Is not, he must go back to Mattea
wan. If he Is, nnd the Justice so rules,
then he will be at liberty to go wher
ever ho pleases, and .spend his enormous
fortune as he wIIIb.
Justice Keogh, before whom the roso
is being tried, sits each ear upon
scores of similar actions. They differ
only In that there are no high-priced
alienists, days of testimony taking, nnd,
In a few Instances, any lawyers at all.
