"Ah ha ha!" The jurist leaned
back and laughed. "You're a clever
lad, Brand. "Well, well; youth -will be
served J" He pushed the pad away.
Brand glanced at the clock fixed in
the wall opposite him.
"It's getting late, judge," he warned.
Bartelmy reached into the inside
pocket of his evening dress coat and
extracted an oblong package. -Slipping
off a rubber band that encircled it, he
unwrapped the yellow paper and laid
before him on the managing editors
desk a neat stack of crisp new bank
bills, all of the $500 denomination.
Bartelmy started to count the money,
but he desisted and pushed the bills
over toward Brand.
"Count It," he said.
"You count it."
The judge leaned forward and began
the task. His head was within four
or five inches of the mouthpiece of
the telephone. He picked up the bills,
one at a time, and as he counted them
he laid them in another pile.
"Five hundred," he said "one thou
sand, fifteen two thousand, twenty
five three thousand, thirty-five four
thousand, forty-five five thousand.
There is half of It," he remarked.
"Yes; th&f s $5,000," assented Brand.
"Sir thousand," said the judge, con
tinuing with his task "seven thou
sand, seventy-five eight thousand."
"Eight thousand dollars," agreed
Nine thou'wri " f-H'nted the judge.
"Nine tnoasand dollars,' said Brand.
"Ten thousand dollars," the judge
"Is that correct?" h6 queried of the
"Ten tiwusand dollars, correct' "as
the reply. "That will wipe the slate
clean between us."

The judge picked up the pile of bills
compressed them with his hands and
pxtended the monev across the desk.
"Take it, Brand," he said.
As the false judge said these word3
and stood with the money in his hands
and held It out to the editor a loud ex
plosion thrilled every nerve fiber in
his body. A blinding glare of light
filled the room, and the air was filled
with the choking caseous fumes of
the smoke of the powder used by pho
tographers in making flashlights.
A pang of terror shot through the
craven heart of the would be briber.
He started back in his alarm, his eyes
almost blinded by the unexpected flood
of light that had subsided as quickly
as it had come.
"My God! What Is that?" he cried,
rubbing the back of one of his hands'
across his eyes.
. Wheeler Brand, who had risen in his
place at his desk when the judge had
finished counting the money, set his
face into hard, unyielding lines as the
judge besought him to speak, to ex
plain. He had won. He had com
pletely at his mercy this cold, crafty
betrayer of the public trust he had
sworn to hold sacred. And it was
with unmistakable triumph in his
voice that he gave the reply that was
to be imprinted on the brain of the.
false judge as long as he was to live
a reply that would haunt him while
awake and awake him when he slept:
"It is a picture of you in stripes,
Judge Bartelmy,!' he announced.
The judge, realizing that he had
been tricked that he had been photo
graphed in the very act of handing
bribe money to the managing editor of
the Advance displayed rare presence
of mind for a man whose complete
Eoclal and professional ruin had be

had been unable to see just in what
manner the camera had been arranged.
But when he reached the side of the
room there was no camera to be seen,
only a round hole extending through
the partition into the next room and
from which the camera had been re
moved. He stood and gazed in dis
may. He knew now that he was at
the mercy of Brand and the Advance

knew that he would not be beaten un

story of his shame.
Shaking from head to foot in his
rage, he pounded the desk and cried
"You have gone to all your trouble
for nothing. I am going direct to Mr.
Nolan's house, and in less than an
hour you will receive orders to kll

you want to print!"
Brand smiled calmly. He gathered
the $10,000 in bills, which lay scatter

thrown them when he dashed for the

As the judge disappeared Wheeler
Brand sank heavily into his chair. He
spread his arms on his desk and bow

J. L.GAMPDELL PLMIS DRID6E TO JUMEZ
Costumes Varied and Many;
Spectators and Dancers
There were king's courtiers, bashful
school girls, American cow boys, Mexi
can vanqueros, bullfighters of all sorts
a motley array, 300 In all danced and
froliced Saturday night and until the
"little morning" of Sunday on the floors
of the old theater over in Juarez. It
was a noteworthy affair from the city's
point of view, the first and only
"baile de careta" of the social season.
Strange to American.
It was just as sraqge, quite as for
eign to the American as any grand ball
in Spain or Italy cpuld have been.
Everything, the swaying dancers "en
masque," the brightly dressed women
and the somber clad men in the boxes,
the quaintly constructed theater and
It was this way: El Club Recrea
tivo, a men's social club, was enter
taining for the evening the Club Terpsi
core, composed of the feminine patrons
of that goddess of the dance. And of
course all the Juarez society was out in
force, filling the many boxes which line
the sides of the theater. Another class
packed the galleries. And stil another
stood at the door and watched the cos
tumed dancers arrive.
Those who came to see fired volley
after volley at those who came to dance.
It was the game to recognize the danc
ers and when once an identity was dis
closed by a familiar stride or a too
freely spoken word the unmasked one
was tormented from every part of the
hall. A "picador" bullfighter entered,
clad, no doubt, in genuine garb. He
carried a billiard cue in lieu of a lance
and when he stumbled on his muffled
legs and fell headlong on the floor there
was great rejoicing. Laughter was
not spared that night
Disguised as Senorita.
And just before midnight a trumpet
sounded and masks were raised and cast
aside. Many had guessed right, more
were surprised. And jn one case tumult
was rampant. A pretty girl, dressed
in black and white Columbine costume,
with white French heeled slippers and a
coiffure of blonde radiance had attracted
much attention" had esvced with the
handsomest of the men, had been most
popular. But strangely the Frenchy
girl would not talk, bashful or mute
it was not known a strange American
girl maybe. But when the mask was
raised a pointed and well waxed mus
tache greeted the curious men of the
ball. It was Senor So-and-So In dis
guise, and all who had danced with the
.mustached fair one were in disgust. And
so the house roared.
And then all, costumed or not might
dance, and the flr3t and only mask hall
of the Juarez social season was in full
swing and an unquestioned success at
the arrival of the "little morning."
TO WALL STREET
President Says Methods of
Business Must Conform
to the Laws.
New Ycjrk, X. T., Feb. 14. Before
hundreds of prominent Republicans
gathered at the annual Lincoln day din
ner, of the Republican club of this city,
held at the Waldorf-Astoria, Saturday
evening, president Taft replied to Wall
street and its cry of "panic" in the fol
lowing words: "If the enforcement of
the law Is not consistent with the pres
ent method of carrying on business,
then it does not speak well for the
present methods of conducting business,
and they must be changed to conform
to the law."
The president adhered to his purpose
of discussing platform pledges and how
theyshould be kept. He also declared
thatthe administration "would not
foolishly run amuck in business and
destroy confidence just for the pleasure
of doing so."

Structure Outlined Is Con
crete and Provision 'Made
for Statues of Statesmen
Believing that it is now only a ques
tion of. time before the problem of the
construction of an international bridge
across the Rio Grande, furnishing bet
ter communication with Juarez, wTH be
taken up by both the United States and
Mexican governments, J. L. Campbell,
engineer of maintenance of way of the
El Paso and Southwestern system, has
completed an elaborate design, purely
through personal entertainment and in
terest In the matter, which calls for
due consideration should continued
agitation result successfully.
Estimated Coxt $245,000.
Mr. Campbell, who has for the past
five years drawn plans for the El Paso
& Southwestern bridges and who was
formerly connected with the construc
tion department of the Rock Island line
between Kansas City and St. Louis, Mo.,
has carefully sketched his irawlig
so that it shows every detail includ
ing the actual ornamentation of the
structure and its dimensions, even ap
proximately calculating the total ex
pense which he places at $245000.
The length of this proposed bridge
would extend 450 feet with a clear width
of 70 feet, the material used being re
inforced concrete. It would rest on
pile foundations extending 50 feet be
low the river bed. The dimensions
make allowance for a street car line
of double tracks, sidewalks and road
ways. Six spans, topped at the Intersections
by columns upon which could rest ap
propriate statues of famous statesmen
and warriors of each country, are In
cluded in the generTl ornamental
scheme. In the center tlVe plans exhibit
a keystone arch on each side of which
impose a coat of arms of the United
States and Mexico, placed on the re
spective sides of each country- The
Mexican seal of state would face the
south, while the American eagle would
look toward the north perched above
the red, white and blue emblem.
"Washington and Juarez Statues. x
Surmounting the columns attached to
the arch, it Is proposed that bronze
statues of "Washington and Juarez face
each other, the latter facing the west.
Upon 'he remainder of the columns
would stand six statues designed by
sculptors to appropriately represent
warriors and statesmen of national rep
utation as might be selected by each
Tour lights are provided for each
Square column, making the bridge a
blaze of electricity at night.
' In discussing the plans Mr. Campbell
says such a structure would last thou
sands of years, as there is nothing in
Its construction to get out of order or
to be repaired. In flood time the water
could not reach within five feet of the
top of the spans, allowing the water to
rise to the 20 foot level, the highest
mark on record.
The parapets of approaches would
Miiie sufficiently to allo'v drlvowas ic
be constructed at each end of the bridge
The estimated cost, according to Mr
Campbell, would not exceed 7 a square
foot, making a total of less than a quar
ter of a million. It would require about
six months to finish the bridge from
the time construction was started.
Mr. Campbell drew the sketch within
the short period of ten days and both
its simplicley and beauty will attract
attention by those interested in the pro
