peared today before the House Rules
Committee In support of the Allen reso
lution demanding a Congressional probe
of the matter.
Miss O'Reilly described how she posed
a a canning operative In several fac
tories, and drew a vivid picture of the
squalor and misery under which she and
fellow employes labored for lone; hours
at a' starvation wage. .
That mere children were -employed in
many tasks-was charged.
' Talking rapidly,- her eyes gashing In
anger. Miss. O'Reilly for -an hour held
the' committee silent -with amazement
at' her disclosures.
In a factory, at Falrport, Tf. Y., MIsa
O'Reilly said she found forty children
of tender age at work, twenty-eight of
whom, had a virulent skin disease. The
camp where the workers lived, she said,
was on a swamp, with no provisions for
bathing or drinking.
In a Marion. N. T., plant the witness
said she foond six women at work pack
ing tomatoes, with hands so Infected
with skin disease that they were obliged
to'kiep them In bandages.
"But the cans 'are afterwards steri
lized, so I suppose they sterilized the
filth," the added.
Reviewing conditions she had found
between Albany and' Rochester, Miss
O'Reilly declared that the workers were
practically all afflicted with 'skin dis
eases. t j. Camps Flimsy Affairs.

said, 'lasted from October to the fol
All of the camps, she declared, were
flimsy affairs, with no sanitary arrange
ments, and with three or four -families
crowded in one shack. Nearly all the
employes were infected with skin, eye
and scalp diseases.
Many of the children employed, she
said, were between the ages of six and
ten. They earned from 10 to 20 cents
a day for ten hours work. The can
neries were generally on the outskirts
of villages. Miss O'Reilly pointed out,
where j no attention was paid to sani
tary conditions, and most village offi
cials were employes of the cannery.

CHAPTER V. (Continued.)
E day. Mistress Mary escaped
his vigilance, but only for a
moment. She had time to say
"Alan Urnuhart" when Black
Archibald stepped to her side and said:
"Ha! Is this Rorie who has 'grown
so big and Important?"'

opportunity and reiatea uie uitwcui
Don John. He slapped his thigh de
lightedly. "That is good, Rorie. Now, you go
to this Alan Urquhart and say like this"
and here Don John looked cautiously
around" 'Mistress Mary sent me to
you. Alan. You'll remember that.
"And If he seems to understand, then
you'll look around again like this, Ro

"Tflat's all. If Mistress Mary has al
ready spoken with him, then he will un
derstand. If he does not understand,
then you will tell him that there is a
toe sum awaiting him if he will row
his boat around to the Striven shore the
first dark nlcht." ..-, ,
I understood, but it was difficult to
remember: so for hours on end Don
John and I rehearsed the little play.
Sometimes he would give me confusing
answers, so that we must have gone
over every possible situation. That
evening I went to the clachan and met
Alan Urquhart as he came from the

""Good. Now run. lad!" Alan whis
pered when he had repeated the tryst,
"Alan will be there."
Not only was this satisfactory to Don
John, but I was able to whisper It to
Mistress Mary when I delivered the
milk In the morning. She seemed pleased
at first: then her face fell.
"Oh Rorie! That Is this very night.
"Are. Mistress Mary."
"Give him Godspeed! ' she whispered
through her tears, and she went back
Into the castle, too wrought to utter
the message which I knew her heart
My story onlv served to depress Don
John, who spent the rest of the day
walking up and down in the narrow
cave, his brow clouded with grief and
omen But the dark was not an hour
fallen" when the brambles were thrust
aside and Mistress Mary, barefooted
and pale, stood before us.
"Mary!" he gasped, taking her In his
arms, "What have you done?"
"John," she answer simply, "I could
not let you go."
"Ah!" he murmured, and he held her
at arm's length from him and feasted
his moist eyes upon her simple beauty.
"But your brother?" he ?aid.
"I care not," she said, quietly. I
cannot return to the castle now. or
have I the wish to. I am coming with
"Mary' It Is impossible!" he gasped,
yet his yes were aglow with the dream
of it. "Do you not see "
"Don John, you say you love me?
Heacn knows how I love you John!"
Her voice broke, and she threw out her
hands. "I cannot live in that fearful
place, even though I shall know you
are utrlvlnsr to come back to me. John-
John take me with ou. I am not
afraid. I will starve, if vou can. I will
die if oh. whv speak of it?" she cried
Impatiently. "I have taken the step.
There Is no going back. Even now he
seeks me. his anger rising as every mo
ment passes. There is only one way,
John. You must take me with you."
Don John stared at her face, -which
the fllckerlngs of the firelight re
vealed in resolute, glorious lines.
There was a long pause, then ho bald
In a voice which was athrlll with
passlpn and grief:
'So be It. Mary I see it clearly. I
will take you with me "
Then, the crliis past, a mons signifi
cant stillness fell within the cave. It
was broken by Don John, who ad
"Rorie," lie said, gravely. "ou are
a child, yet you understand what you
see, and In years to come vou shall
bear witness. I promise-, before vou.
to cherish this woman as my wife
until I die And see, Rorie, In token
of faith. I give her this."
He took a locket and a gollen chain
from his ntck and tilaced It reverent
ly around Mistress Mary's.
"It contains the face of my mother"
he said simply. "I make my vow upon
her sacred memory. So shall no man
speak 111 of our union. Mary, give mo
She drew It slowly from Iit hand
and slipped It on Don John's finger
"And may God have mercy on us
both, my husband1" she whlppercd.
"Rorie." said Don John with a sud
den twinkle in his1 eyes. "It shall be
your pleasure, privilege, and honor to
klsfl Dona Maria Marquesa de Mur
cla." It was a few moments before I real
ized that lie meant Mlstresn Mary,
then I bashfully kissed her and found
her face wet with tears. Soon after r
left them and went back to the farm
house for my supper.
At 9 o'clock, which was even late
for me to be nut of bed. my father
looked at me as I sat by the fire
thinking, and said:
"What Is It, lad?"
I would have told him, but at the
very first words he raised his hand.
"If it Is about Don John, keep your
own counsel, lad."
I continued sitting by the flre, snd
when the old clock said It wanted but
half an hour of the 12 my father did
not even raise his head as I passed out.
T trotted across thn T-rmr Pasture until
I came to the burn, which I crossed
with little noise. As I stole through the
fringe of woods to the Striven shore I
thought I heard a cry, but it was not
lepeated, and I went on.
It mu3t have been near midnight when
I came out of the woods and saw Alan
Urquhart with his boat beached and sit
ting in the bow with his back to me. I
stepped out into the moonlight and
here was a thing that we had all over
lookedand called softly to him. He
hm nnt hr and continued to look sea-
"Alan! I whispered as louaiy as l
Cared. "Alan Urquhart!"
Still he did not move, and it was then
I noticed that he sat ip a very huddled
altitude. I crept up toward the boat,
still calling his name. When I reached
the sldo I put out my hand to shake
him, for I felt sure that he tnust'have
fallen asleep. But the moment my hand
touched him Ms head fell to one side
and his Jaw dropped. Then I saw that
he was covered with blood, and knew
that he was dead.
My hair felt like Icicles on the mo
ment. I turned and ran into the woods,
smothering a desire to cry out. I had
not gone 100 paces before I thought 1
heard footsteps behind me. I did not
Mop to look, but ran on through the
wotods, bumping now and then Into
trees, but for the most part guided by
the rays of moonlight that shot from
above. Several times I thought I was
stKl pursue... Once I heard the snap
ping of a twig nearby. I stopped short:
for if an enemy was tracking me I did
not wish to guide him to tho cave.
But the wood became still when. I
stopped. Blaming my vivid Imagination,
T pushed on thJa tlme at ft. walWnK
gait. But again I heard the sound,
just as I was wading into the pool, and
asTeS ft tlTeSWZS creT
..Come out-quick-run! There's a man
Mistress Mary gave a cry: but Don
John pushed her gently back of him.
and said as he drew his sword:
"A man, Rorie? Just a man?"
The words were on his lips as the
brambles burst aside. Black Archibald
appeared In the cave with a sword In
his hand. He did not utter a word, but
bore down upon Don John. The two
men engaged. , ,
In the dim light of the fire it was a
strange sight, I hardly know how the
men saw one anotlier's blade. Mistress
Mary, ghostly in appearance, stood In a
shaft of moonlight which flooded down
through the holtow oak. Her hands
were clasped tightly over her bosom,
but she did not utter a sound.
The battle lasted less thin a minute,
and Don John .was the victor. Black
Archibald stood, disarmed, before him.
"Archibald," Bald Don John calmly,
sheathing his blade, "I should scorn
myself did I slay my kinsman."
"Kinsman?" sneered Black Archibald.
"Have ye made yourself kin?"
"Silence!" Don John cried sternly.
"Your sister is my wife by all that is
holy In manhood and the sight of God.
We were wedded this night on the very
spot you would dishonor."
"Liar!" shouted Black Archibald, his
hand flying to his breast, while Don
John's leaped back to his sword-hilt.
"Liar! Seducer! That for your honorl"
A flash of light, a volume of smoke,
and a deafening roar filled the cave. I
heard Don John cry out, Mistress-Mary
scream, and the brambles crash; then
When the smoke cleared. Black Archi
bald had disappeared and Don John lay
on the ground, his face upward. Mis
tress Mary was on her knees beside
him, plteously calling him by name, i
"Mary!" he said faintly. "Mary!" ''
"John John Oh! my husband my
"Mary I did not think maybe he
loved you, too. Forgive him. Rorlt
I came forward from the place where
I had been crouching, stricken with ter
ror. Don John looked up at me and
"Rorie." .he said, and his voice, seemed
to come from a distance. "Odds against
us from the beginning1. 'Member my
mother so shall no man speak 'Ul.
Rorie, if ever you go to Spain tell
them you met Don John. Mary good
night, dear "
She bent her head and kissed his brow.
Then the everlasting silences were
broken only by my sobbing.

ON FALLS BATES
Head of Road Admits Ex
cursion Parties Furnish
AVhen cross-examination of F. C.
Wright, president of the Washington
and Old Domlnlbn Railroad, IS re
sumed before the Interstate Com
merce Commission on Monday. Mr.
Wright will be asked why. on his
own showing, his road Is carrying
diplomats from Washington to Great
Falls and back at a lower rate than
he is bringing and returning Great
Falls commuters. President Crowcll.
of the Old Dominion Citizen's Asso
ciation, has asked John B. Daish, at
torney for the protesting commuters,
to put this question to Mr. Wright,
Mr. Wright testified that the prin
cipal excursion business in the win
ter months from "here to Great Tails
is In "carrying parties from the lega
tions." The rate is 35 cents for the
round trip. From Great Falls here
and back the charge is 45 cents.
Transfer Clearing Houses.
Mr. Wright's testimony brought forth
for the first time a statement that sev
eral lltle "clearing houses for transfers"
had been established in Georgetown,
prior to the advance in rates, with
Cherrydale as the basing point, last
fall. He strenuously denied that Cher
rydale wkas chosen as the basing point
for ratlpg commutation tickets, with
the object of defeating the jurisdiction
of the Interstate Commerce Commission,
and said that it was choseh on account
of these transfer clearing houses having
On the other hand the prosecution Is
ready to point out that rates between
several Virginia suburbs on the line are
now proportionately higher than rates
from these points to Washington.
On cross-examination Mr. Wright ad
mitted that his road was much more
expensively conducted than was neces
sary, and said that had he built it he
would have" used forty-eight-pound rails
Instead of the seventy-pound employed.
Several 'apaprent discriminations as
between the various kinds of commuta
tion tickets, and also as between .the
commutation tickets and the one way
and round trip tickets, were armitted
by Mr. 'Wright. He sought to excuse
these on the ground that they were
necessary by elimination of fractions.
It was shown that as between two
places, paying the same one way and
round trip ticket to Cherrydale, a pas
senger at one of the places could, by
buying a twenty-.five trip ticket save 27
cents, while at the second place the pas
senger jrould lose 27 cents in buying a
twentj'-flve-trip ticket. In other words,
the twenty-flve-trip ticket Is favorable
to certain localities while disadvantage
ous to others.
Of the IocaI rate. Mr WHcht li"
that they arc within the maximum al-'
lowed by the IVrginla railroad commis
sion In the Southern railway case. In
that case the Virginia railroad commis
sion was eating under the law permit
ting 2 cents per mile.
Where Hates Differ.
Whle It was not distinctly pointed out,
yet it appears that the "Interstate rate
between Washington and Cherrydale Is
somewhat less than a cent per mile,
while the rate between -Cherri'dale and
other points in Virginia on the samo
line is 2H cents per mile.
It clearly developed that the conten
tion of the road Is that Its rates cannot
b reduced because the road has not
paid dividends. This will raise, lr Is
said, the Interesting question whether
or not dividends are guaranteed by the
Constitution to a common carrier.
