"I don't know what uso you can

is truo that these men fell into our
hands In tho manner you mention, but
how that can help j-ou or tho force la

"General," Interrupted Darrell, "you
wcio prepared yesterday to make
terms. You had, as I believe, the di
rect nuthorlsMllou of the Ilusslan rov
eminent to show mercy, even to prom
ise a general amnesty under conditions
very favorable to the Circassians. All
you required was tho sin render of cer
tain persons ami, of course, tho usual
laying down cf arms, upon which tho
Circassian soldiers woro to re turn In
safety to their bonus. Uy a singular
trlclc of fate all tho persons named by
you, with ono exception tho khan
have fallen into your power. You have
decided, therefore, to enhance your
own military glory by securing an un
conditional sin render of this city. It
would bo an achievement for so young
a general, especially because It would
have been done In spite of the weather,
to which, by thu way, you owe much
personally, since It has laid all your
superiors flat on their backs hi the de
lirium of fever and hns left you at tho
head of all'alrs. Yes, you owe much to
the rain, mid I bless It with equal fer
vor." "Why, may I nsk'i" inquired Gotchl
koff, not without a tremor of apprehen
sion. "llecnueo It enables mo to deal with

"What authority have you to deal
with anybody'" demanded Gotchlkoff.
"Heboid the signet of tho khan," re
joined Darrell, displaying tho ring
which ho hnd put upon the little flngci
of his right hand.

"Dven ns you say," answered Get
chlkoff. "Let us seo about that," retorted
Darrell. "In tho llrst place, what will
happen when you get to Stavropol?
You will face tho wrath of your fa
ther for your conduct In putting mo out
of the way. Oh, I am well Informed
nbout It. You worked your 'pull,' as
we say III America, with tho chief of
the secret police, and then you organ
ized a fako court which condemned
me and loft no record of Its proceed
ings. When wo get back to Stavropol,
your father will not thank you for the
International complications that will
result from your crimes against me."
"We," said Getchlkoff, "will never
get back to Stavropol. Only ouo of us
Is going. You will remain."
And ho pointed down to tho ground.
"Von may kill me and bury me," an
swered Darrell, "hut the American con
sul lu Stavropol is another proposi
tion." "My dear sir." retorted Getchlkoff,
"I don't believe ho knows anything
about II or will ever learn anything."
"My excellent friend," said Darrell,
"ho has already learned everything.

"Pcihnps you do not fully compre

hilt of his sword.
"lio enlm," said Darrell. "Lot us
reason upon tho matter and see exactly
how you htnud. Your private affairs
ore at tliis moment of far more conse
quence than tho strength of these con
tending armies. I have had consider
able time shico wo parted to meditate
upon your case, for one has much lei
auro in prison. I have decided that
you are ji thoroughly selllsh man; that
your chief terror Is your father; that
your chief deslie Is to quit tho army,
(Stavropol, everything of your old life,
nud live In wealth and luxury In Paris.
Your marriage will make that posalble.
Am I right in thebo mutters?"
"I uhnll do tho tMugi you name," an
swered GetciiikolT, "and n dead mail
burled In tlio Caucasus mountains will
not pi event me."
"You aro what wo call in America n
bluffer," said Danell. "At this pres
ent moment you aro shaking lu your
boots, and tho cause Is that one word
'forgery.' Oh, I have leasoned this
tiling all out. Who tore up the docu
ment found beMdo tho body of Ladls
lov in Paris? I.adlslov himself; tho
thing Is certain. Why did ho attempt
to destroy It? My fileiul Gordon an
hwers tho question from Paris. Here
Is n copy of the telegram."
And he gave It to Getchlkoff, whoso
brow dripped as ho read.
"That was a warrant for tho Prin
cess A'era Shevaloff," continued Dar
rell. "It was tho sort of document that
is sometimes funiMicd In blank to cer
tain oliliinhi, Including tho governor
generals of provinces. It boro tho czar's
name and was apparently countersign
ed by your father. Of course such doc
uments possess no validity as war
rants ouisldo of Ilussluu dominions,
but ciiatures llko Ladlslov, tho spy,
occasionally have to ehlhlt the:vi when
making kidnaping arrcHts that aro
winked at by tho police of continental
cnies, ami in any case the warrants
have to ho shown when tho prisoners
reach the Ilusslan frontier.
"My friend Gordon telegraphs that
the document Is n forgery. He means
that your fnth"r's countersign as gov
ernor general of Stavropol, the prov
ince to which the prisoner was to bo
taken, was forged. The sign manual
of the czar was undoubtedly geilulue.
You observe that my friend says so.
Who, then, idled In this document
fraudulently and signed your father's
naim ?"
"I don't know!" exclaimed Gotchl
koff, with a dry throat. "You cannot
prove that I did It."
"My dear general, you were kpph to do
It," answered Darrell. "You filled that
document out In tho I'rencli cafe tho
day I refused to lend you my prn.
Gordon knows It and lias his witness
es," ho continued, making his story tho
stronger us he saw tho other's terror
Incrense. "Let us be just to you. You
wore drunk when you did It carefully
Intoxicated to the light point by your
good friend, Captain LadWlov. We will
consider Ladlslov for a moment. IIo
was In the pny of the Gorskl family,
who aro Stavropol people, and they
desired revenge upon tho Prhicos Vera
for tho death of their relative. In
eoino way they contrived to lane this
blank warrant abstracted from your
father's papers and sent to Ladlshn.
There Is no other possible method of
accounting for his possession and uso
of It. Your father, believing that tho
Gelcliikoll's had Injured Vcra's family
enough, had refused to aid In her cap
ture" "You enn't know all these things!"
exclaimed Getchlkoff.
"Why, man, you told mo thnt your
self," rejoined Darrell. "You men
tioned your father's sentiments to me
wiille we were riding down from Paris
to Stavropol while you wero plotting
to have me suppressed on my arrival -nud
It was the only sincere thing you
said to me. Ho was away from the
city during these events, which made
matters easier, ltut let us leturn to
Ladlslov. You wero tho man who
could forge your father's hand. If you
should do It, Ladlslov figured thnt your
father, should it he Imposslblo to keep
Vera's arrest from his knowledge,
would not daro to punish those con
cerned In it because you were the chief
dinner. It Is no small thing, my friend,
to tamper with a document healing tho
czar's signature. It bars you, for yuur
life's sake, from Stavropol. You lmvo
nald that only one of us can return.
You are not the one!"
Getchlkoff reached out his hand for
a pitcher of waiter that stood on tho
table and lu clasping It broke off tho
handle and upset tho vessel upon the
door. t fi
"He crilin," raid Darrell. "Itcmemlier
that thdfo, fiic(sii'ro known to Gordon
hi Paris. and ifliTSt of them to our con
sul In Stavropol. I alone can suppress
them. Well, we have now barred you
from your mitlvo laud. How about
Paris? Gordon says Ladlslov helped
you with your miitiimonliil venture.
Of com so he did; he bad to win you.
He had thu usual wide knowledge pos
sessed by foreign spies. It was com
paratively eay to llnd a ilch woman
who would marry so presentable a
limn as yourself, and ho knew that a
ilch wife was what you wanted-ii
rich Parisian.
"Now, what became of Lndlslov? IIo
was killed. l!y whom? P.y the owner
of a revolver wMch I sent from a sta
tion lu Franco to Gordon In Paris, a
rovolMT which 1 abstracted from your
traveling bag, Gotchlkoff. 1 was play
lug detective and playing the game
hard. Did you miss the weapon?"
"I did," answered Getchlkoff, with
rafjp, "but I did not suspect you wore a
"In tho matter of suspicion I seem to
have hnd an advantage," said Darrell,
"for I did suspect that you wero a mtir
deier." "I am not!" exclaimed Getchlkoff,
with sudden enruestueS3 and sincerity.
Darrell stepped close up to him and
bpoke In a low tone.
"I am perfectly well nwnro of It,"
ho said. "You wero lu thnt cab with
Infamous trick. When i tnrow Ltull
lov down from the box, you Juiupi d
out of the djor. You slipped and fell.
Lying on tho sidewalk, you drew n re
t elver and Hied at me. Ladlslov sprang
up at that moment, and the bullet
struck him lu tho back, but he was too
much exulted to suspect that ho hnd
sustained a serious Injury. You both
pursued thecal), but became sopaiatod.
Ladlslov fell dying from Internal bleed
ing and In his last conscious moments
attempted to destroy that forged war
rant." "You do mo only justice," said Gut
chlkolf hoarsely. "Tho thing was an
necldeiit. " I did not even lire at you.
Tho weapon went off In my hands a I
drew It for protection."
"1 am a just man," said Darrell, "but
I can't answer for my friend Gordon.
It lies lu my mind that ho is not so Just
as I nnij that in case any harm comes
to mo ho will publish you In Paris and
before tho world as n cold bloodpd mur
derer. Why.'fhe case is clear. Ladls
lov bad aded your matrimonial
schemes; you 'had paid him with tills
forgery. Ho had you In his power.
What more j natural than that you
should wish Ijlm dead? It Is tho com
mon inotlve.Aud now answer me.
Can you return to Paris? Can yon re
turn to Stavropol? Not without my
permission, General Getchlkoff,"
There wasa long pause.
"I understand," said Gotchlkoff sud
denly, "that you aro able to deliver up
tho khan lu addition to the pilstincrs I
now hold. It could ho represented that
the strategy by which the others wero
caught was a pait of the terms of sin
render. Darrell, I will sign those terms,
and every person In that town shall bo
guaranteed safety, every soldier hi tho
army shall bo paroled If you Ull give
mosntlsfactory pledges that neither you
nor your friend will do mo nn Injury.

A sudden spasm of pain swept across
the Uussian's face. From that Instant
Darrell felt secure.
"When ymi wished my niiino to bo

continued. "It is my turn now to pick

"Itather than carry you back to Stav

Gctchlkoff, leaning across the table,
his face livid, "I will give you a chance
to break out of Uredskov and escape
you ami the princess nud a part of tho

tauqua assembly oh ".abor and Cap
ital -The Workman's Sldo of tho
Mr. Gompors profaoed his remarks
by saying that tho average mind looks
contrary on lahors's sldo of tho ques
tion. "Tho Nowspapoi'S, without any
attempt on my part to charge them
with unfairness, usually present the
labor question from the standpoint cf
the employer. Thoy either tfdt tliolr
Information from employers or their
representatives. It its tho audio old
story, tho man and women, tho repre
sentatives of labor who sulTor from
tho saino old wrong. Thero Is no
short cut to emancipation."
Mr. Gompors dculnrol that tho labor
of youuif and Innocent children is the
groat ovil that needs reformation.
"Many states particularly ; lu tho
South, have no law whatever to pro
vent tho praotteo. Mon got rich," ho
declared, "from the labor of children,
v.hoso bones aro ground into almighty
dollars. It Is a sad eoinmoiitary
Men walk tho streets lu idlonoss
In tho toxlllo districts, while tho mills
aro fi 1 1 oil with busy children. Instoad
of labor being crownod with honor
nud dignity, Its rightful horltngo, It is
a question of how much labor can ho
squeezed out of a laborer and how
Httlo wagos ho can bo forced to accent
In return."
Mr. Gompors discussed tho quostion
of shorter hours at length, declaring
tho countries of long hours wero do
oldedly backward, and denied tho
allegation that tho movement to
shorten hours would moan tho dceu
denen of Ihn Tnltol Stales ilh a great
power. Ho declined that thero was
no greater conservator or tlio poaco
than the labor organization.
"Ono hundred and fifty llious'inil
men lu thu anthracite Held have been
engaged In a silent struggle for three
months and thero has been loss vlo
lonco than is committed at a picnic of
ordinary people upon ordinary occti
slons. Tho men .struggling .today

and I believe, as God is my judge, tho

Mr. Gompors duo la rod that the law
yer was Incompetent to discuss tho
industrial question. "'Tlio lawyer
lives in and studies tho past," ho de
clared, "While bring faced physl

brought out by tho alleged remark of
a Mr. I Joss, a legal rosproaoutatlvo of
