CHAPTER XXIX. Continued.
Tin- Hi st news t got wiis that Hill
'Van Nest h:nt 'disappeared. Ah soon
Sh tho Stick Kxchnugc opened, Nn-
tlomil Coal became the renturo. lint.
liKti'iii of "wash miles," Hochuck,
Cangdon uml Melville wore theln-
M'lvi'H, llnnugh various brokers, buy-
ng the stocks In large quantities to
teep the prices iii. My next letter
. -y mm ns brief as my Hist philippic:
-w "Hill Van Nest Is at the Hotel
?rnnkfort, Nownik, under the name or
riiomns Uiwry. Me was In telephonic
:ominunlcntlon with Piesldent Mel-
lllc, of the National Industrial bank,
"The underwriter of the National
Coal company's now Issues, frlRht
iiied by yesterday's exposme, have
compelled Mr. Iloebiick, Mr. Mow
bray Langdon and Mr. Mclvlllo them
selves to buy. So, yesterday, those
three gentlemen bought with real
money, with their own monoy, large
liinntltles of stocks which are worth
less than half what they paid for
"They will continue to buy these
-' stocks so long as the public holds
aloof. They dare not let tho prices
slump. They hope that this storm
will blow over, and that then the In
vesting public will forget nnd will I
eliove them of their load." I
I had added: "Hut this storm won't
blow over. It will become a cyclone."
I struck that out. "No prophecy,"
Bald I to ni) self "Your rule, Iron
clad, must be facts, always fa;ts;
only facts." .
Tho gambling section of tho public
took my hint nnd rushed Into tho ;
market; tho burden of protecting tho
underwriters was doubled, and more
and more of tho hoarded loot was
dlBgorged. That must havo been a
costly day for, 10 minutes nfter tho
Stock Kxchango closed, Hoebuck sent
"My compliments to him," said I to
his messenger, "but I am too busy.
iril be glad to see. him here, however.
"You know ho dines not como to
you," said tho messenger, Schilling,
! ts'r -il)resldetit of tho National Mnnurnc
hired food company, sometimes called
I tie I'olson Trust. "If ho did, nnd It
I vero to gel out, there'd bo a panic."
j '"" '"Probably," replied I with a shrug,
j "Thnt's nonffalr of mine. I'm not re-
I sponsible for the rotten conditions
j which these so-called llnnnclers hnvo
produced, and I shall not bo disturbed
by the crdsh which must come."
Schilling gave me u genuine look of
, mingled pity and admiration. "I sup
pose you know what you're about,"
said he. "but I think you'ro making i
a mistake " I
"Thanks, Ned," said I ho hnil been
my head clerk a few years before,
and I had got him tho chauco with
Hoebuck which ho had Improved so
v well. "I'm going to have some fun.
'""T, " Can't live but onco."
My "dally letters" had now ceased
. - , to be advertisements, had becomo
nows, sought by all tho nowspnpers
of this country and of tho big cities In
. Oront Hrltalu. I could havu mado u
largo saving by no longer paying my
"' "v sixty-odd legular papers for Inserting
j them. Hut I was looking too fnr
.',tv ahead to blunder Into that fatal mis-
' . take. Instead, I signed a year's con
tract with each of my vapors, they
guaranteeing to print my advertise
I tnents, I guaranteeing to protect them
against loss on libel suits, l organ-1
Izod n dummy nows bureau, and j
through It got contracts with tho tele- j
, . graphic companies. Thus Insured .
ogalnBt tho cutting of my coinmunlca-1
I tlons with the public, 1 was ready for
j tho real campaign.
I It began with my "History of the1
j National Coal company." I need not
j repeat that famous history here. I i
I need recall only the main points how
H"V I proved that tho common slock wus
H '' actually worth less than two dollars a
share, that tho bonds wero worth less
than twenty-five dollars In tho bun
I drod, that both stock and bonds were ,
II Illegal; my detailed lecltal of the j
' I crimes of Hoebuck, Melville and I.nug-.
don In wrecking mining properties, In I
wrecking coal railways. In ejecting
I American labor nnd substituting I
helots from eastern Kurnpo; how they i
had swindled and lied and bribed;
how they had twisted the books or
the companies, how thoy wero plan
ning to unload tho mnss of almost '
worthless securities at high prices,
then to get from under the market
and let the bonds and stocks dropj
down to where thoy could buy them In
on terms that would yield them more
than 250 par cent on tho actual capi
tal Invested. Less and dearer coal;
, lower wages and more Ignorant labor
ers; enormous profits absorbed with
out mercy Into a few pockets.
On the day tho seventh chapter of
this history appeared, tho telegraph
I companies notified mo that they would
l transmit no more of my matter. They
U feared tho consequences In llbol suits,
H explained Moscby, general manager or
H one of the companies.
H "Hut I guarantee to protect you,"
'H said I. "I will give bond In any
m amount you nsk."
, "u emit take th risk, Mr. Hlack-!
lock, leplled he. The twinkle In his
ee told me why, and also that he,
I like every one else In the country ox-
I tept the cllipie, was In sympathy with
My lawyers found an honest Judge,
and I got an Injunction that compelled
the companies to transmit under my I
contracts. I suspended the "History I
j for one day, and sent out in place of
It an account or this attempt to shut
me -off from the public "Hereafter,"
said I, in the last paragiaph la my
letter, "I shnll end each day's chapter
with n forecast of what tho next day's
. chapter Is to be. If for any reason It
' falls to appear, the public will know
that somebody has been coerced by
Hoebuck, Melville & Co."
That arternoon or, was it tho next?
1 I happened to go homo early. 1
have never been able to keop nllve
anger against any one. My anger
against Anita had long ago died away,
j had been succeeded by i egret nnd
remorse that I had let my norves, or
I whatever tho accursed causo was,
1 whirl mo Into such an outburst. Not
"'FOOLf SIIK FLAKUD AT Ml-:. OH, TUB FOOLS WOMEN MARK
Hint I regretted having rejected
what I still felt was Insulting to me
and degrading to her; simply that my
1 manner should hnvo been different.
Thoro was no necessity or excuse for
i violence In showing her that I would
I not. could not, accept from gratitude
what only lovo has the right to give.
And I had long been casting nbout for
soiuo way to iiologlzo not easy to
do, when her distant manner toward
. me mado It dltllcult for mo to tind
I even tli" necessary commonplaces to
I "keep up appearances" before the
I servants on tho few occasions on
which wo accidentally met.
i Hut, as I was saying, ! came up
I from tho o 111 co and stretched myself
ou tho lounge In my private room nd
' Joining tho library. I had read mysuir
I Into a doze, when a servnnt brought
mo a card. I glanced nt It us It lay
upon his extended tray, "(lenernl
Mouson," I read aloud "What does
the damned rascal want?" I naked.
Tho servant smiled. Ho know as
well ns I how Mouson, attar 1 dis
missed him with a present of six
I months' pay. had given tho nows-
papers tho story or, rathor, his vor
i slon of tho i tory of my efforts to
educate mysel;' In tho "arts nnd graces
of a gentleman "
"Mr. Monsou snys ho wishes to see
you partlculaily. sir," said ho.
"Well I'll see him." said I. I do
Hplsod him too nuch to dlsllko him,
and I thought ho might imsslbly bo In
want. Hut that .lotion vanished the
Instant I set eyes tijxin him. Ho was
obviously at tho very top of tho wave.
"Hollo, Monson," win my greeting, In
It no reminder of his treachery.
"Howdj. HlucMock." said he. "I've
come ou a little en and for Mrs Lang
don." Then, with that nastv grin of
his: "You know. I'm looking after
things for her since the bust up "
"No, I didn't know." said I curtly,
suppressing my Instant cuiloslty.
What does Mrs. Langdon want?"
"To see you for Just n few minutes
whenever It Is convenient."
"If Mis. I.angdon has business with
mo, I'll seo her nt my oftlce," said I.
She was one of the fashionables that
had got herself Into my black books
by her treatment of Aultu since tho
break with the KUerslys.
"Sho wishes to come to you hero
this uftornoon, If you aro to bo at
homo. Sho asked mo to say that hor
business Is Important and very pri
vate." I hesitated, but I could think of no
good excuse for refusing. "I'll bo
hole un hour," said I. "(Inod day."
Ho gave mo no time to change my
mind. , Something perhaps It wns
his curious expression as he took him
self off mado me begin to rogrot.
The more I thought of tho mnttor,
the less I thought of my having made
any civil concession to n woman who
had acted so badly toward, Anita and
myself. He had not been gono n
quattor-or an hour before I went to
Anita In her sitting room. Always,
U'.'J Instant I entered tho outer door
of her part or aar house, that power
ful. Intoxicating fasclnatlea that she
had for mo began to take possession
of my senses. It wns In every gar
ment she woro. It seemed to linger
In any place where sho had been, for
n long time after she left it. Sho
was at a Binull desk by tho window,
was writing lettets.
"May I Interrupt?" said I. "Monson
was hero a few minutes ago from
Mrs. Laugdou. She wants to boo inc.
I told him I would see her here. Then
It occurred to me that perhaps I had
been too goodnntured. What do you
I could not soo hor face, but only
tho back of hor hood, and tho looso
colls of magnetic hair and tho whlto
nnpo of hor graceful neck. As 1 bo
gnu to spenk, sho stopped writing, her
pen suspended over tho shoot of
papor. After I ended thoro wus n
"I'll not seo hor," said I. "I don't
iiulto understand why I yielded." And
I turned to go.
"Walt pleaso," camo from her ab

sho comes horo, I think tho only per
son who can propbrly rccolvo her Is
"No you must seo hor," said Anltn
nt last. And sho turned round In hor
chnlr until she was facing mo. Hor
expression I can not describe It. 1
enn only say that It gavo mo a sonso
of Impending calamity.
"I'd rathor not much rathor not,"
"I particularly wish you to seo her,"
sho replied, and she turned back to
hor writing. I saw her pen iKilsed as
If sho woro nbout to begin; but sho
did not begin and I foil that sho
would not. With my mind shadowed
with vaguo dread, I left that mysteri
ous Ftlllnoss, and went hack to the
It was not long before Mrs. Lang
don was announced Thoro aro somo
women to whom a hnggard look Is In
coming; sho Is one of thorn. Sho was
much thinner tliuu when ( last saw
her; Instead of her former restlesB,
petulant, suspicious expression, she
now looked tragleallv sad. "May I
trouble yotti coso the door?" said
sho, when t"J '"mint had wlthdrn.vn
1 closed, io door.
"l'yo conje," she began, fluhout
seating heijelf, "to make ". as un
hnppy, I fear, us 1 am. I've hesitated
long berore coming, Hut I mil desper
ate. Tho one hope 1 have left Is that
you nnd I beiweui us may be nblo
to to that you and I may be uble to
help each other."
"I suppose there are people," sho
wont on, "who have never known what
It was to really to caru for somo one
olso. They would despise nui foi
clinging to a man after ho has shown
mo that that his lovo has ceased."
"Pardon me, Mrs. Lnugdon," 1 In
terrupted. "You apparently think
your luisbnnd nnd I nro Intimate
friends. Heforo you go any further
I must dlsabuso you of that Idea."
Sho looked at mo In open astonish
ment. "Yqu do not know why my
husband has left mo?"
"Until a few minutes ago, 1 did not
know that!' ho had left you," I sahL
"And 1 do not wish to know why.'
Her expression of ustonlshmcut
changed to mockery. "Oh!" sho
sneered. "Your wife has fooled you
Into thinking It n ouo-sldcd affair.
Well, I tell (hi. sho Is as much to
blamo as he more. For ho did lovo
mo when ho married mo; did lovo mo
until she got him under her spell
I thought I understood. "You hnvo
been misled, Mrs. Lnugdon," snld 1
gently, pit) lug her ta tho victim or
hor lnsano Jealousy. "You hnvo "
"Ask jour wire," sho Interrupted
angrily. "Hereafter, you can't pre
tend Ignorance For I'll at least bo
rovongod. She failed utterly to trap
hlin Into mnrriage when sho was u
iroor girl, and "
"Heforo jou go nny further," said
I coldly, "let inn set you right. My
wifo wns at one time engnged to jour
husband's brother, but "
"Tom?" sho Interrupted. And her
laugh nihdo mo blto my lip. "So slin
told you that! I don't seo how sho
dared. Why. everybody knows that
sho and Mowbray woro ongaged. and
that ho broke It off to marry mo. '
All In an Instant everything that
had been confused In my tilTnlrs at
homo nnd down town, became clenr.
I undorstood why I hail boon pursued
relentlessly In Wall street; why I had
been, uuablo to make tho least lm
prcsslou on tho barriers between
Anita nnd myself. You will Imagine
that somo terrlblo emotion nt onco
dominated me. Hut this is not a
romanco; only tho veracious chroni

not Tom Langdim. "I ought to havo

said I toelf, I, contending with

hrnjr-I-tliat was vastly different. My
i-C8ic&t for myself nnd for Anita rose
"No,' said I to Mrs. Langdon, "my
wife did not tell me, never spoko of It.
Whatf said to you wns purely n guess
of liiAown. I had no Interest In tho
mnttM-and haven't. I havo absolute
confldlpco In my wlfo. 1 feci ashamed
that ydu havo provokod mo Into ttnj'

"I cm not going yot," said sho an
grllj-. "Yestcrdny morning Mowbruy
and sho woro riding together In tho
Hlvorsldo drlvo. Ask her groom."
"What of It?" said I. Then, as shu
did not rise, I rang tho bell. When
tho servnnt camo, I said: "Ploaso
toll Mrs. Hlacklock that Mrs. Langdon
Is !n tho library and that I am hero,
nnd gavo you tho mossago."
As soon ns tho sorvant wns gono,
sho said: "No doubt sbo'll Ho to you.

"I do not Intend to ask her," I ro
piled. "To ask hor would bo an In

I. "I hope, Madam, you will spare

Sho looked wildly round, clasped
her hands, '.uddenly bust Into tears.

Washington Admiral Dewey strong
ly resents tho proposition that has
been discussed In a moro or less aca
demic way to surrender tho Philip
pines, which, of all men, bo was a lend
ing fnctor In bringing under the Amor
lean ling. In nn Interview, tho admiral
sots out tho reasons which Impel him
to Insist upon the retention of tho
Islands. The stiong point of his nr
gument Is not hnscd upon tho military
or naval Importance of tho Islands,
but upon the grent value, present nnd
prospective, of the Philippines to
America In the cNtenslon of our trndo
with tho orient
Thu admiral says: "Abandon tho
Philippines? 1 don't hellcvo our coun
tty will over do Hint. Certainly It
should not, becauso It hns altogether
too much nt stake. It Is only our con
trol over tho Philippines thnt mnkos It
possible for us to Insist upon tho opon
door In tho enst, townrd which our
diplomacy has been directed for years.
Wo wnnt our share of tho enormous
commerce of the east and wo enn't
keep tho door open for It unless wo
hold tho Islands. Why did Spain for
200 years domlunte the enmmorco of
tho orlcut7 Just becauso sho had tho
bay and hnrbor of Mnulhi ns n grent
commercial mid naval baso. Thnt
baso can bo Just as useful to un com
mercially as It was to Spain. For ten
years every strong Ihnopenn nation
has been trying to get a foothold for
commercial and naval purposes In the
far east. Through tho fortunos of war
tho United States obtnlnod tho best
position posBihlu, giving uh superior
commercial advantages over the na
tions. Whnt sort of a common senso
would It bo for us to glvo up Bitch a
"SupM)SO wo should dlsposo of the
Philippines and Japan should ncnulre
them. Seo how tho Islnnds Btrotch
along tho const. Here aro tho Philip
pines nnd Formosa. If Japan had them
sho could commnud every gntewny to
tho orient nnd tho United States would
bo completely shut out. ICvcry ono
concedes thnt tho orient Is tho future
grent field for tho principal commer
cial operations of tho world. Wo ought
to bo tho lenders, but wo muBtntloast
hnvo a shnro In tho enterprise, nnd
In order to do so wo must maintain
tho 'position wo havo occupied. I
think It Is plain that we must havo a
