a mighty chorus that filled the Strand
and Fleet street. The ceremony was re
peated at Chancery lane.
Queen Mother Bears Up Well.
Rumors current concerned the queen
mother. Alexandra, who it was said,
had broken a blood vessel in a parox
ysm of grief and her condition -was se
rious. It was officially announced at
Buckingham palace, however, that the
mother of the new king was well and
beairisg up bravely.
The KJnsr's Speech.
When informed Saturday officially
that he had become king, George V said:
"My lords and gentlemen, my heart is
too full for me to address you in more
than a few words. It Is my sorrowful
vduty to announce to you the death of
my dearly loved father, the king. In
this irreparable loss which has so sud
denly fallen on me and the whole em
pire, I am comforted by the feeling that
I have the sympathy of my future sub
jects, who nill mourn with me. I have
lost not only a father's love, but the af
fectionate and intimate relations of a
dear friend and adviser. No less confi
dent am 1 in the universal and lovinf
symapthy which is assured to my dear
est mother in her overwhelming grief.
"I am deeply sensible of the very
heavy responsioility which has fallen
upon me. I know that I can rely upon
the parliament and upon the people of
these islands and my dominions beyond
the seas for their help in the discharge of
these arduous duties, and their prayers
that God will grant me strength and
guidance. I am encouraged by the
knowledge that I have in my dear wife
one who will be a constant helpmate in
every endeavor for our people's good."
Not Socially Inclined.
Unlike his father, king George is not
likely to be the dictator of society and
fashion. All his life he has cared little
for social affairs and has only partici
pated at functions where the conven
tions made it a necessity.
His official wardrobe is worth about
$30,000, including various foreign uni
forms. His private funds went largely
to hospitals and other charitable dona
tions and purchasing stamps for his
c&lleotion. Collectors throughout the
world knew him as an excellent cus
tomer. His collection, which is -worth
over $500,000, will be transferred to
Buckingham palace.
King George is an excellent golfer
thereby commending himself to the
hearts of his Scottish subjects.
No Tnrf Devotee.
George cares little for horse racing.
Edward's appearance at Derby day, and
other famous meetings, were the sig
nal for the assemblage of the smartest
people in society.
George may go to the Epsom Derby,
but it is doubted if he follows his fath
er's footsteps otherwise. There is deep
depression at Newmarket, where the late
king maintained expensive racing sta
bles, fdr Jt is realized that king George
will not continue it.
He looks like a typical naval com
mander of middle age, with close crop
ped beard, not yet showing a tinge of
gray, with a kindly, rather homely
face which would pass unnoticed in a
crowd.
Looks the Country Gentleman.

But "The Ring" Ticket Wins Election, Harper Leading
and Irvin Polling the Fewest Votes for the Win
ners Stevenson Leads Citizens ' Ticket.
, Judges Exhibit Tally Sheets.
By a majority of 31S votes the Good
Schools ticket representing "the ring,"
was elected Saturday. The new school
board will be composed of H. A. Car
penter, John H. Harper, W. L. Peabody,
Dr. B. M. Worsham, W. L. Tooley, Dr.
E. H. Irvin and W. H. Winter. Two doc
tors, two lawyers, a cement man, a
banker and a furniture dealer now com
prise the school board of El Paso.
The result of the election was prob
ably a greater surprise to the winners
than their opponents, for "the ring" ex
pected to sweep the city with a vote
that would stagger the opposition and
lead everyone to believe that the ring
is still all powerful In El Paso. But it
was different. In the districts where
a strictly American vote prevails north
of the tracks the Citizens' ticket had
things pretty much its own way, while
even down in the Mexican settlement,
"the ring" did not nearly as well as
leaders had expected.
Ike Alderete in the second ward lost
ground, and had not his brother, Frank,
come to his rescue there might have
been another tale to tell when the re
sult was announced Saturday evening.
Dr. Herbert Stevenson led the Citi
zens' ticket with 795 votes and, as W.
H. Winter remarked up at the Vilas
school, he ran like a scared wolf. John
Harper ran 3 IS votes ahead of him and
led "the ring" ticket by a consider
able majority.
Perhaps the strangest pliece of poli
tics ever witnessed in any election in
the city of El Paso was the display
of the tally sheetsshowing just how the
election was goinV- These tally sheets
were in plain view on the desk of the
judges in several places, where anyone
who entered might see them. Quite true,
it was as fair to one side as to the
other, but in reality it was fair to
neither. The results are not supposed
to be exhibited until after the polls lare
closed and the vote is counted.
This was done in at least two of the
downtown precincts at the city hall
and fine station and also at the Vilas
school.
At the central fire station one man
remained inside the polling place to in
struct Mexican voters how to cast their
ballots for the ring. Twice during
Saturday, Julius Krakauer objected to
his assisting voters without their re
pearance hut George, while neat, lacks
"style." In state robes of the prince
of Wales he gains little dignity, but as
a democratic country gentleman stroll
ing among the shops of the WeTt End
he looks anything but ro3"al.
Fond of the Sea.
His career so far has been one of
peculiar devotion to sea faring.
Whatever tendencies of. disposition
he may develop as a ruler it seems
certain that England's naval potency
will be his first care and Interest.
The new king was born June 3, 1865,
and was at a very early age made a
.midshipman and then trained through
all the stages of naval advancement
from middle up to commander. In the
latter station he had three ships, and
in every instance proved himself the
equal of those officers who had no
other degree of life open to them than
th" nrofeIonal one they occupied.
But he was as adaptable as his father
had proved himself to be, and without
pretense or affectation, he took his
place with the others, went through the
same routine, submitted to the same
rigors of discipline and accepted the
rough fun of the 'tween decks so
ciability with good humor and en
joyment. His sea education has been most thor
ough. A Domestic Man.
Prince George was married on July
6, 1893, to princess Mary of Teck.
His children give surety of no diver
sion of the royal succession, for he has
three sons and 1 daughter.
These are: Prince Edward Albert
Christian Andrew Patrick David of
York, born June 23. 1894.
Prince Albert Frederick Arthur
George of Totk born December 14,
1895. j
Princes Victoria Alexandra Alice
Mary of York, born April 25, 1897.
Prince Henry William Frederick Al
bert, born March 31, 1900.
He is known to be steady, domestic,
thoroughly educated and well Imbued
with British tradition of policy and
Ideas.
A most striking instance of the exi
gencies of romance among princes was
noted when h became engaged to the
princess Mary of Teck.
Married Brother's FInncc.
"Princess Mary," as she was known, I
was affianced to his elder brother, the
then duke of Clarence.
On the death of this prince there was
added to the usual condolences felt to
ward the young princess, the regret
that she would, as a result, never have
the possibility of becoming queen of
England.
Bui, love, or requirements of a royal
alliance, interfered, and as soon as con
vention would permit after the death of
the duke of Clarence the announcement
was made that the princess May had
become affianced to prince George, the
new heir to the throne, the wedding
occurring in 1893.
Whether the marriage was one of
love or of convenience is new of no mo
ment, for it has developed into prob
ably the most serenely hanpy alliance
known among persons of equal sta
tion. If king George has one derided trait J
it is the enjoyment of being with his
wife and children. That is his favorite
enjoyment.
Not n "Sport."
He has no "sporty" tendencies.
He only knows one game of cards,
which is whist, unless he has been
forced of late years, which is probable,
to learn bridge.
He has never gambled; Is averse to
the rough and ready pastimes peculiar
to Englishmen.
It is a tradition that he has never
bestrode a horse; at any rate it Is
known that he has never ridden to
hounds.
And the only outofdoor delights h
Has, save that of sailing, is playing golf
and fly fishing, both of which his royal
father disdained and would never en
gage in.
He has made it plain since he took
up prolonged residence on shore that he
cared nothing for society as such,
though he has always maintained his
dates in attending' formal functions.
Not a S-rrell Dresner.
And no one has ever learned who his
tailor is, and no known effort has ever I
uccn mau iu ascertain mat fact. For
ne is a weu ciaa man, but knows noth-
questing It- He was informed by J. .F.
Holgate, one of the associate judges,
that the man was a judge, yet the man
never took a seat at the table and did
no work in connection with the casting
of ballots except to show men how
to mark their ballots, so far as any
one could see.

The Citizens' ticket carried in the
districts above the tracks where there
is none but the strictly American vote,
while the opposition carried the lower

It is very clear just how and where
the "ring" piled up its majorities for
Harper, Irvin and Winter among the
Mexicans -who vote as they are ordered
to do, and not upon any free and intel
ligent choice. The free and Intelligent
voter on Saturday was evidently in fa
vor of the Citizens' ticket.
Ing, and cares less about sartorial In
tricacy. If king Edward patronized a tailor
his fortune was made.
If prince George were seen in a tail
or shop Jt did not bring one additional
order to the place.
There is record of only one fashion
he started In popular favor.
And that was a drink!
Not such a beverage as would make
his name popular along the side doors
of any Great White 'Way of Urban fash
Ion. For one day last year the prince en
tered a cafe in London, scanned the bill
of drinks carefully, and turning to the
bowing waiter ordered a glass of hot
milk.
This was noted by the newspapers
and ever since the sedate Britishher,
who wished to be in good form and at
the same time pay due respect to his
liver, ordered hot milk, the habit spread
to Wales and to Scotland, but there is
no reference to its ever becoming wide
spread in Ireland.
Not Bad Tempered.
He is not known to have ever dis
played any bad temper.
There has never been any avoidance
of his princely duties; he visifed hos
pitals, went into society as much as
he had to, took a degree of Fellow of
the Royal College of Surgeons, joined
the London Typographical society, and
has always observed etiquette by going
to Scotland in the shooting season,
without shooting.
But in general information, all that
the public knows of George V, is that
he Is a most sensible, quiet, domestic,
sedate, gentleman who has been thor
oughly and capably prepared for the
tremendous position that has now fal
len to his lot.
Visited United Stares.
A few years ago he made tour of
the world, and crossed Canada on his
way to England.
When he arrived in Montreal he
insisted on going to Niagara and cross
ing to the American side.
This caused a tremendous flurry with
his entourage;
Protests were unavailing; he had de
cided to go and nothing would offset
his determination. The party was form
ed, the prince being known among the
members as Mr. .
He simply dropped out of sight for a
couple of days; the Canadian author
ities were informed that his absence
was his Tsish, and that no inquiries
would be welcome, and none were made.
Unpopular With British Masses.
The duke of Connaught, the king's
brother, now hunting in Africa, is
next to Edward, the most popular mem
ber of the royal family. The prince of
Wales is unpopular to a large extent,
and because of a certain well defined
hauteur possessed by the princess of
Wales, she is unloved by the masses.
There are thousands of Britishers, who,
If it vere constitutionally possible,
would like to see the succession alter
ed in Connaught's favor. They fear
that Wales is untactful, and not strong
enough to deal with one of the most
critical eras of the empire's political
history.
It is predicted, when the political
tension becomes acute, in the event of
George V becoming unable to subdue
his well known partiality for conserva
tive politics, a cry will be raised coun
ter to his continuance as monarch.
As prince of Wales the king,
however, always showed a disposition
to learn the needs of the poor. Through
his efforts conditions In many parts
of the empire, and especially in the
poorer quarters in London, have been
much improved. This acquaintance with
the working classes may stand him in
good stead, when the graver questions
of governmental reorganization come to
him for decision as come they must,
at no distant date.
Ardent Believer in Big Navy.
George is an ardent, if quiet, sup
porter of the big navy movement. He
knows more about the German naval
plans than any active officer of the
British fleet. He has tables showing
the world's progress in battleship fleets
at his finger'?; ends and in this respect
Is expected to prove tne superior of his
cousin, the kaiser, with whom he may
have to deal, sooner or later. He Is
said to hate the Germans

SYNOPSIS Of PREVIOUS CHAPTERS.
Howard Jeffries, banker's son, under
the evil influence of Robert Underwood,
fellow-student at Yale, leads a life of
dissipation, marries the daughter of a
gambler who died in prison, and is dis
owned by his father. Forced to leave
college, he tried to get work and fails.
His wife, Annie, is straight as a die, and
has a heart of gold. A former college
chum makes a business proposition tc
Howard which requires $2,000 cash, and
Howard is broke. Robert Underwood,
who made love to Annie in his col
lege days and was repulsed, and was
once engaged to Howard's stepmother,
Alicia, is a welcome visitor at the Jef
ries home. Underwood has apartments
In the Astruria, an exclusive apartment
house. Howard recalls a 250 loan to
Underwood that remains unpaid and de
cides to ask him for the $2,000 he needs.
Mrs. Jeffries, Sr prepares for a great
leceptlon at her home. Mrs. Jeffries, sr.,
foolishly encourages a dangerous Inti
macy with Underwood which the latter
takes advantage of until he becomes a
sort of social highwayman. Discover
ing his true character, Mrs. Jeffries, sr.,
denies him the house, but receives a
notefrom Underwood threatening sui
cide unless she revokes her sentence
of banishment. She decides to go and
see him. Underwood is in desperate
financial straits. Merchants for whom
he has acted as commissioner in the
sale of art treasures demand an ac
counting. Underwood cannot make good.
Howard Jeffries calls at Underwood's
apartments in ati Intoxicated condition
to borrow money. He asks Underwood
for $2000 'and is told the latter is In
debt up to his eyes. Howard drinks
himself into a maudling condition. Mrs.
Jeffries, sr., arrives as Howard sleeps
on a sofa. She demands from Under
wood a promise that he will not take
his life, pointing to the disgrace that
would attach to herself from being as
sociated with a suicide. Underwood re
fuses to promise unless she will renew
her patronage. This she refuses to do,
and takes her leae. tmderwood turns
out the lights, places a pistol at his
temple, and fires. The report of tie
pistol awakens Howard from his drunk
en slumber. He stumbles over the dead
body of Undemrood.
Howard's first supposition was that
burglars had entered the place and
that Underwood had bee"n Wiled while
defending his property. He remem
bered now that in his drunken sleep
he had heard voices in angry alterca
tion. Yet why hadn't he called for
assistance? Perhaps he had and he
hadnVheard him.
He looked at the clock, and was
surprised to find it was not yet mid
night. He believed It was at least
five o'clock in themorning. It was
evident that Underwood had never
gone to bed. The shooting had oc
curred either while the angry dispute
was going on or after the unknown
visitor had departed. The barrel of
the revolver was still warm, showing
that it could only have been dis
charged a few moments before. Sud
denly It flashed upon him that Under
wood might have committed suicide.
But it was useless to stand there
theorizing. Something must be done.
He must alarm the hotel people or
call the police. He felt himself turn
hot and cold by turn as he realized
the serious predicament in which he
himself was placed. If he aroused
the hotel people they would find him
here alone with a dead man. Suspi
cion would at once be directed at him,
and it might be very difficult for him
to establish his innocence. "Who would
believe that he could have fallen
asleep in a bed while a man killed
himself in the same room? It sounded
preposterous. The wisest course for
him would be to get away before any
body came.
Quickly he picked tip his hat and

city, in a recent letter, "I remained very
sick, which kept me in bed for eight
weeks.
I couldn't get up, all this time, and
though my doctor came to see me every

made for the door. Just as he was
about to lay hand on the handle there
was the click of a latchkey. Thus
headed off, and not knowing what to
do, he halted in painful suspense.
The door opened and a man entered.
He looked as surprised to see How
ard as the latter was to see him. He
was clean-shaven and neatly dressed,
yet did not look the gentleman. His
appearance was rather that of a serv
ant. All these details flashed before
Howard's mind before he blurted out:
"Who the devil are you?"
The man looked astonished at the
question and eyed his Interlocutor
closely, as if In doubt as to his identi
ty. In a cockney accent he said
loftily:
"I am Ferris, Mr. Underwood's man,
sir." Suspiciously, he added: "Are
yotj & friend of Mr. Underwood's, sir?"
He might well ask the question, for
Howard's disheveled appearance and
ghastly face, still distorted by terror,
was anything but reassuring. Taken
by surprise, Howard did not know

questioned at a disadvantage, he an
swered foolishly:
"Matter? No. What makes you
think anything Is the matter?"
Brushing past the man, he added:
"It's late. I'm going.'
"Stop a minute!" cried the man
servant. There was something in
Howard's manner that he did not like.
Passing quickly into the sitting room,
he called out: "Stop a minute I" But
Howard did not stop. Terror gave
him wings and, without waiting for
the elevator, he was already half way
down the first staircase when he
heard shouts behind him.
"Murder! Stop thief! Stop that
man! Stop that man!"
There was a rush of feet and hum
of voices, which made Howard run
all the faster. He leaped down four
steps at a time in his anxiety to get
away. But it was no easy matter de

If we made less of them we'd have to make
more on" them. But steady sales of millions a year
justify the purchase of entire crops, make possible
the maintenance of enormous warehouses where floors
of tobacco can be ripenedy until all the harshness is
aged out, and enough reserve stock held in storage
to protect us against off-years when the tobacco isn't
up to standard. That's why the Henry George is
always delightful, always satisfying and always good.

took him several minutes to reach the
main floor.
By this time the whole hotel was
aroused. Telephone calls had quick
ly warned the attendants, who had
promptly sent for the police. By the
time Howard reached the main en
trance he was Intercepted by a mob
too numerous to resist.
Things certainly looked black for
him. As he sat, white and trembling,
under guard in a. corner of the en
trance hall, waiting for the arrival of
the police, the valet breathlessly gave
the sensational particulars to the rap
idly growing crowd of curious on
lookers. He had taken his usual Sun
day out and on returning home at
midnight, -as was his custom, he had
let himself in with his latchkey. To
his astonishment he had found this
man, the prisoner, about to leave the
premises. His manner and remarka
were so peculiar that they at ones

the. apartment and found his master
lying dead on the floor in a pool of
blood. In his hurry the assassin had
dropped his revolver, which was lying
near the corpse. As far as he could
see, nothing had been taken from the
apartment. Evidently the man was
disturbed at his work and, when sud
denly surprised, had made the bluff
that he was calling on Mr. Under
wood. They had got the right man,
that was certain. He was caught red
handed, and in proof of what he said,
the valet pointed to Howard's right

blood.
"How terrible!" exclaimed a woman,
bystander, averting her face. "So
young, too!"
