most beautiful suffraget." The committee, which was composed of William
Wlngate, president of the Brooklyn Republican club, and of other no less re
nowned Judges of feminine beauty, were embarrassed In their selection by
th wealth of beauty which surrounded them. For a long time the choice
hung in the balance between Miss Cordes and Miss Jeanette Brooks of Bay

then presented to the blushing but happy Miss Cordes.

ternoon of June
15, 1215, followed

attendants seemed vastly amused over
something that had Just happened and
which they professed to regard as a
But the moment the regally clad
man reached his private apartments
in the palace, away from the eyes of
the public, his mask of false gayety
was cast aside. He hurled himself
upon the floor, screaming, raving and
howling fearful blasphemies, Xoamlng
at the mouth and biting like a mad
dog at the rushes that strewed the
Nor was this burst of insane fury
without an excuse. For the man was
a tyrant; and that day had been forced
to sign tbe death-warrant of tyranny.
He was John, king of England. More
than a century and- a half had passed
since William the Conqueror had won
England, beginning the blend of Nor
man and Saxon races and giving the
English a new line of kings and no
bility. Henry II., king of England,
had several sons, all of whom hated
their father and at various times con
spired against him. John was the
youngest. From his poverty he be
came known as "Lackland." The eld
est son, Geoffrey, died during Henry's
lifetime, leaving one son, little Prlnco
Arthur. Geoffrey's next youngest
brother, Richard (known as "Lion
Heart"), became king of England at
Henry's death. He spent nearly all
his ten-year reign fighting In other
countries, and died child lees.
During Richard's absence from Eng
land John had tried to seize the crown
for himself. On Richard's return he
had to fly for his own life before the
wrath of the brother he had striven to
supplant. Richard, however, forgave
him, and named him as heir to the
throne. On "Lion Heart's" death
John became king of England in 1199.
Some of the nobles tried to make his
nephew, young Prince Arthur, king in
John's place. Civil war broke out
John was victorious. Arthur was cap
tured and thrown into prison. John is
said to have had the sixteen-year-old
boy's eyes put out and then to have
murdered him. The king of France
made war on John to avenge this al
leged murder, and seised nearly all
England's French possessions.
John, forced thus to confine his tyr
anny to his own country, proceeded to
make hla people's Uvea miserable. He
seized at will the few possessions ot
the poor and laid heavy taxes on the
rich. He Insulted and Ill-treated the
clergy, defying the pope himself. The
church thereupon placed an "inter
dict' on the blackguard and his realm.
His holiness also called upon the
Christian rulers to unite against John.
'This last danger scared the cowardly
tyrant into submission. But he re
fused to make his people's hardship
Then it was that the powerful bar
ons, led by Stephen Langton, arch
bishop of Canterbury, presented a
code of laws for the betterment of the
people and for the curbing of oppres
sion. They called this document the
Magna Charta (Great Charter).
Among other reforms, the charter pro
vided fair trial for every prisoner,
authorized the nation to resist unjust
royal demands and put the will of the
people ahead of a mere king's wishes.
The church's liberty was to be re
spected and no man's possessions
were to be wrongfully seized by the
John was asked to sign the Magna
Charta. He refused. The barons and
the common people combined to force
him to sign it. Frightened by their
power and his own weakness, John at
last consented. Thus was English lib
erty born and the rights of man were
established. John met the barons at
a meadow, near Runnymede, on June
15, 1215, salved his vanity by pretend
ing to make a Jest of the matter,
signed tbe charter and safe In his
palace gave way to a fit of maniacal
Though he had been coerced into
performing an a:t of splendid Justice
by signing the Magna Charta, John
bad not the faintest idea of keeping
his promises to the barons. He called
on foreign hired soldiers to help him
crush his rebellious subjects. The
English retaliated by asking a French
prince to come over and be their king.
The land was once more rent by civ
il war. John showed no mercy to his
own country, but desolated and
wrecked it wherever his armies could
find a foothold. At tbe climax ot the
struggle his mind gave way. He sick
ened and, on October 19, 1216, died.
Some historians believe he was poisoned.
