Rollins caught his breath with a
sharp little intake. "It Is a high hon

Kelvin laughed lightly. "No honor
could be too high for my greed of
power. he said in a half jesting tone.
"I am still of the opinion that I should
like to be emperor."
Lillian looked up at him. smiling.
"And I still hold to my original decla

the woolen mills combine resolved it
self Into Its original members. Kel
vin's publicity bureau seized upon this
as the first shining example of what
the flat rate had done for the public,
and Kelvin went soaring again in the
public esteem. The mills of the wool
en combine had once more become in
dependent concerns, competing with
one another, with the double effect of
raising the price of wool and lowering
the price of the finished article, the
farmers and the public being the great
beneficiaries, and Rollins bad done
this, with. Breed back of him as the
momentum, and back of them both

came to blows. Raymer, as be well
might, was underselling the other

Why, Breed and Rollins and Kelvin,
But Kelvin had Ion? since absented
himself from Forest Lakes, leaving be
hind him no thought of any interest
that might be there, save as it con
cerned his own boundless aims. The
dreams of two women, one dark and

not have cared now if he had known.
He left the field to his rivals and
plunged into his new plans with the
same concentration that hnd marked
his previous undertakings. Henry

Kelvin's new task was an agreeable
one. He took up pleasant quarters in

as anions his asseis. and gradually his
circle of acquaintances irrew. He was

tested Rollins. "Can't they legislate

"Scarcely." returned Kelvin, with a
smile, "sinre we ourselves are the law

public from clamoring too much to
their servants in Washington. I've
just purchased slock lu the govern

Rollins looked trotXled. "I don't

"Nonsense!" declared Kelvin. "We're
lining it to a good end. You can estab

Life Aboard These War Craft Is a
Sequence of Jiscomforts.
Submarine boats have been develop
ed to the point where they can cover
on their own power a radius of 800
miles lu effective fighting trim. In
storm and calm the submarines are
capable of navigating the seas with
credit to their inventors and construc
tors. WTith a fleet of these vessels sta
tioned in the vicinity of any of our
larye coast cities it would be difficult

one of enjoyment.
But it i when the submarine dives
that the most unpleasant symptoms
come. There are ten compressed air
j anks supplied, and theso furnish suf-
rieieot air to keep the ew alive a
good many boprs.
't did you ever live on compressed
oir? If not it will be a new sensation.
I especially if you are fifty feet below
' the surface n; the water. There is a
tingling sensation all over the body,
' a pounding of the eardrums and pos-
sibly a sense of nansea.

I gets his share of the oxygen, but some
times the supply may vary. It cer
tainly does in different parts of the
ship. One may be choking for lack of
good clr in one part and be exhilarat
ed by a too abundant supply in anoth
er. Sometimes when the engines are
running to charge the batteries Mie
fumes of the gasoline become so strong
that men are rendered unconscious.
They must be taken up on deck then to
get a whiff of freh air.
For this reason tne batteries are only
! charged when above the water. But
j in time of war it might be necessary
to charge them while running below.
Then, indeed, the man aboard the sub
marine might envy the aerial navi

abundance of fresh air to breathe.

Leading Business Men Are Now
in Charge of Affairs of the
FORMER COUNCIL IN JAIL
Party and Ward Politics Largely
Abolished Community Going
Since the overturning that landed so
many Pittsburg officials behind the
bars the city Is now under a council
of nine. The new government has
been installed only a little more than
one month, but already the effects of
its policies are felt. Here is a char
acteristic scene under the new re
gime: Around a long directors' table on
nine deep seated office chairs are nine
of the city's leading citizens. At one
end of the table is the city's mayor,
and at the other end are officers of
the city's commercial and civic bodies.
Forming a background and filling the
large, high ceilinged room are sub
stantial citizens and taxpayers of the
municipality. Near the mayor stands
one of the city's officers whose duty
It is to collect certain of the public
funds. The question Is directed to
him by one of the nine at the table:
"You collect millions of the city's
moneys annually. What interest on
daily balances do you get for the
"None," murmured the officer in an
"What? None?" snapped the man
at the table. "I don't call that good
business. It's bad business."
It was bad business, and it had been
for thirty years or more. But the end
la in sight. Pittsburg is about to put
a stop to this and many other unbusi
nesslike practices. The nine men at
the table are Pittsburg's new council
men, . selected, to inaugurate a new
6ystem of government in the city.
This city, the hardest hit by the last
business depression and for thirty
years one of the worst governed in
America, has taken on new life. The
millions to be spent in public work un
der progressive business direction will
attract other millions to private enter
prise. With a new spirit in public ad
ministration there is to be a renewed
business movement. Not in many
yenrs have conditions In Pittsbnrg
been more hopeful. All is the result
of a few little amendments to the
city's charter by the last state legisla
ture. The vital features of Pittsburg's
charter revision were the abolition of
two large councilmanic bodies elected
by small ward divisions and the substi
tution of one small legislative body to
be elected by the city at large. Today
In place of si sty -seven little men
at one time 155 there are nine big
men. Instead of twenty-seven minor
subdivisions with their petty interests
there is one big city.
While the Pittsburg plan alms to
give the people representative govern
ment, it is by no means a commission
form. Those back of the charter
movement Insist on this distinction,
beiieving that government by commis
sion would not be successful In a city
as large as Pittsburg. The plan leaves
the mayor, who is elected by the peo
ple, practically undisturbed in his ex
ecutive powers, which are large. In
only two places does the authority of
the council and the mayor overlap.
The mayor has the power of veto, and
the council has supervision over th
mayor's appointments f department
heads. In other words, before any ap
pointment to one of the four executive
departments can be made by the may
or it must be confirmed by a majority
of the council. This body, too. can re
move the head of any department for
cause and also has under the law Juris
diction in an impeachment trial of the
mayor. Apart from these limitations,
however, as executive officer of the
city the mayor Is supreme.
