other tourist, simply to se the great city
of the world.
The ndt morning I started out on a
voyage of exploration. Chance- led me to

was repairing the roadway, and when I
asked a bystander what the trouble was,
he moodily answered with one word.

railroad machinery, I happened to ask an

unconsciously made nee of an American
idiom of speech. From that moment I
was a marked man.

a poiean's eye fied upon m. Once I
strolled-a among a collection of antique

I a.h little no aes shudder ran up my
s'pine I was afraid to leave the museum
in precipitation lest Imight be anested as
a suspiious character. And the more I
br over my dangr the more nervous
I became, till my knee fairly tottered
with anguish of split. Every policeman,

Tower, the monument and British
museum had all been closed to the public
and vigilant watch kept upon them day
and night. At all the big railroad sta

and were stationed in the baggage roomS.
For a traveler to carry a valise or parcel
on the underground line made him the
victim of all sorts of police surveillance.
A detective employed bythis company as

It was a stifring time when London
trembled with fear and the pollee detee

gibbet of the suspect.
I had been commissloned to earry a
message from America of a purely social
pataue to r. Thomas P. O'Connor. one
of the Irish members of parliament. One
,evening about a week before I left Lon

to and fro upon the pltform. I felt
angry. But what oul I dot It I had
accused him of tracking me he would no

he had as much ight to visit the Crystal

on to .ondon bridge where I halted for
refreshments at a sidewalk coffee stand.
