"It lies upon you tot remember, little sister, that those who would serve God around the altar must not go thither only because the world has i mistreated them and they would cjist it off to avenge the smart. She who puts on the yoke of Christ must needs do so because it is the thing site would desire of all, were all precious things spread out for her choos ing. Can you look into my eyes and say that it would be so with you?" Where she knelt before her the girl sud denly threw her arms around the woman [ and hid her face in the faded robes. The 1 fr;iil hand stroked the dark hair affectigii j ately. "Think not that I would upbraid you [ with It. child as dear as m.v own heart. When the power that took you from me led you barli again, and I read what God's lingers had written on your face that before was like a lineless parchment. I could not tind it in my mind to wish you otherwise. I felt onl; shame for the weakness of my faith and Joy past all telling." I'nder the soothing hand Randalin's sobs slowly ceased; when at last she raised her wet eyes there was no longer rebellion in them, but only youth's measureless despair. "8ister, now as always, I want to do what you would have me?but I am so full of grief! Must I go back to Avalcomb and begin all over again? It seems to me that my life stretches before me no more al luringly than yonder dusty road, that runs straight on, on, over vast spaces, but al ways empty." Tile beautjfc that had been Sister Wyn freda's hovered now about her mouth as fragrance around a dead rose. Her gaze was on a branch above them where a lit tle brown Dird, calling plaintively, was slipping from her nest. * Over the wattled edge, two tiny brown heads were peeping like fuzzy beech-nut rinds. "I wonder," she said, "what those little creatures up there will think when a few months hence the blue sky becomes leaden, such that no one of them ever before recollected It so dark, and the sun that Is wont to creep to them through the leaves has gone out like a candle before the winter winds? By rea son of their youth, I suppose they will Judiciously conclude with themselves that there Is never going to be any blue sky again, that their lives will stretch before them In a dark-hued stress of weather, empty of all save leafless trees and frozen fields My fledgeling-, will they not be a lit tle ashamed of their short-sightedness when the spring has brought back the sun?"

Date of Meeting of Board of Tax Ap peals and Other Matters Included, i In accordance with a request from the District Commissioners Assessor Hopewell H. Darneille has embodied In a bill the rec ommendation made in his annual report relative to legislation for changing the date of meeting of the board of personal tax ap peals, for exempting art galleries from tax ation, and for assessments 'on savings banks, building associations, bowling alleys, and other business carried on in the Dis trict. The bill, which will be referred to the corporation counsel for opinion as to form, provides that beginning with the fiscal year commencing July 1 1904, the board of per sonal tax appeals of the District of Colum bia shall convene on the first Monday in February of each year, and'conllnue in ses sion to and including the second Monday in March of each year, instead of conven ing on the loth day of November, and con tinuing in session until the 10th day pf De cember in each year, as now provided by law. Section 2. That hereafter art galleries in the District of Columbia which in the opin ion of the Commissioners of the District are of sufficient value, size and merit to be of general interest to the public, and which are at such time or times as the Commis sioners shall direct, open to the public free of charge, shall be exempt from personal taxation. Remission of Penalty and Interest. Section 3. That the Commissioners of the District of Columbia are hereby authorized to remit penalty and interest, or either, on general and special taxes in the District of Columbia, when in their judgment the re quest for such remission shall be for causes deemed equitable and just. Section 4. That the act of Congress, ap proved July 1. 1902, entitled "An act mak ing appropriations to provide for the ex penses of the government of the District of Columbia for the fiscal year ending June ;;o, 1903, and for other purposes," is hereby amended by adding to section 6, at the end of paragraph 7: "That hereafter, beginning with the fiscal year commencing July 1, 1904, incorporated savings banks paying in terest to their depositors shall, through their president or cashier, make affidavit to the board of personal tax appraisers on or before the first day of August in each year, as to the amount of their gross earn ings, less the amount paid as interest to their depositors for the preceding year end ing June 30, and shall pay thereon to the collector of taxes of the District of Colum bia 4 per cent per annum. Amending a Proviso. Tli.it the proviso of paragraph 8, in sec tion 6, be amended to read as follows: "Provided, that nothing in this act conraij) ed shall bu construed as to include news paper, real estate, mercantile and other business companies, which by. reason of in corporation receive no special franchise or privilege, but all such corporations shall be rated, assessed and taxed as individuals conducting business in similar lines are ; rated, assessed and taxed." That paragraph :) of section tj be amended to read as follows: "Building associations shall pay to the collector of taxes of the District of Columbia '1 per centum per an num on their gross earnings for the preced ing year ending June 30. "That hereafter proprietors of bowling al leys in the District of Columbia shall pay to j the collector of taxes of said District an ail- | nual license tax of *10 for each alley." VIOLATED ITS TARIFF RATES. First Court Hearing of Injunction Un der Elkins Law. A dispatch from Lynchburg. Va., last night says: The hearing of argument in the suit of the interstate commerce commission against the Chesapeake and Ohio and the New York. New Haven and Hartford rail roads. in the I'nited States district court, was concluded tonight. The commission charges the Chesapeake and Ohio with not obesrving its tariff rates in hauling coal from West Virginia to New port News for shipment to the New York, New Haven and Hartford railroad. This is the first proceeding brought for an injunction under the Elkins law for the prohibition of rebates and other concess'ons in railroad tariff rates. Judge McDowell has taken the case under advisement, and will render a decision, it is thought, in about thirty days. The points in volved will be finally passed upon by the supreme court. Ex-Attorney General Jno. W. Griggs and Senator Daniel were among the speakers in ' court today. They were of counsel for the i New York, New Haven and Hartford. tenderly as she mov.ed away with her hands full of the green symbols of healing. "Settle not the whole day of your life at its morn ing, most dear child, but live it hour by hour," she said. "If you would be of use nov:, go gather the flowers for the holy table, and when themselves have drawn in holiness from tiie spot, then shall you bring them to the sick woman over the hill." "Yes, sister," the girl said-,submissively. But when she had crossed the daisied grass and opened the wicket gate and came out into the fragrant lane, something seem ed to divide her mind with the roses, for though she sent one glance toward the hedge, she sent another to the spot beyond i ?where the lane gave out upon the great | street to the'city?and after she had walked a little way toward the flowers, she turned and walked a long way toward the road, until she had come where her eyes could follow its white track far away over the hills. "I wonder if I shall ever hiyiger for heav en as 1 hunger for the sight of him," she murmured as she gazed. But whatever the valleys might hold, the hillsides showed her nothing; sighing, she turned back. "It seems to me," she said, "that if we could have little tastes of heav en as we went along, then wf.iuld there still be enough left and the rrftd would seem much shorter." Sighing, she set to work upon the roses, that had twfned themselves in a kindly veil over the bushes. Standing so, it happened that she did not see the horseman who was just gaining the crest of the nearest hill between her and the city. The wind being from her, she did not even hear the hoof beats until the horse had turned from the glare of the sun into the shadow of the fern-bordered lane. The first she knew of it. she glanced over her shoulder and saw the red-cloaked figure rid ing toward her along the grass-grown path. As naturally as a flower opens Its heart at the coming of the sun, she leaned toward him. breathing his name; then In an im pulse equally natural, as he leaped from his saddle before her, she 4rew back and half averted her face, flickering red and white like the blossoms she Was clasping to her breast. He stopped abruptly, a sliort stretch of grass still between them?and it soothed her bruised pride a little th? there was no longer any confident ease inTiis manner but only hesitation and uncertainty. His voice was greatly troubled as he spoke: "Never can I forgive myself for having wounded you, sweetheart, yet had I hoped that you might forgive me. because I ifi)ow not what I did and because I have suS#"ed so sorely for it." j "You have suffered," aha tfepeated with TRUSTEES' STATEMENT EDITOR JOSEPHUS DANIELS HANGED IN EFFIGY. Coercion of Thought and Private Judg ment Contrary to Constitution of Trinity College. A dispatch from Raleigh, N. C., last night says: The trustees of Trinity College, having voted 18 to 7 to refuse the resignation of Prof. B'assett, gave to the public today a statement of their position in the matter, which, in substance, is as follows: "We have had before us the offer of Dr. John S. Bassett to resign his professorship of history, and it is made clear to us that it was not presented out of a voluntary de cision to sever his connection with the col lege, but that it was tendered under co ercive influences from the outside, and be cause of a feeling that his further connec tion with the college might bring injury to it. Solely on His Own Authority. "Candor impels us to admit our regret that Prof. Bassett has expressed certain opinions which gave offense to many, and we are glad to find that these opirlions were expressed solely on his own authority, through a medium which i? in no sense an organ of the college, and not at all in his capacity as a college official, so that neither this board nor the college can be held re sponsible for them. "On the contrary, it clearly appears that the faculty and the students disagree with certain of Prof. Bassett's opinions?so far as we can ascertain?unanimously. Neither do we agree with him. Decline to Accept. "Nevertheless both faculty and students, with equal unanimity, have manifested their desire that this board decline to ac cept Prof. Bassett's offer of his resignation, and for the following reasons, which seem to us high and vital, we do decline to ac cept it: "First. Any form of coercion of thought and private judgment is'contrary to one of the constitutional aims of Trinity College, w'nfch is 'to cherish a sincere spirit of tol ern nee.' "Second. We are particularly unwilling to lend ourselves to any tendency to destroy I or limit academic liberty. Should Be Unhampered. "Third. We believe that society in the end will find a surer benefit by exercising patience than it can secure by yielding to its resentments. The search for truth should be unhampered and in an atmos phere that is free. Liberty may sometime lead to folly, yet it is better that some should be tolerated than that all should think and speak under the deadening in fluence of repression. "Fourth. The matter that has engaged 1 our attention is of more than local interest j and will be far reaching in its results. In Harmony With Its Doctrines. "Fifth. Trinity College is affiliating with a great church whose spirit and doctrines are tolera'nt and generous, and a due re gard for the teachings and traditions of this Christian society requires us to exer cise our judgment in harmony with its spirit and doctrines. "Viewing the matter in the light of these wider interests, and finding that there is no complaint against Professor Bassett's mora! character, his scholarly fitness, his energy, his competency as a teacher, or his command of the confidence of his classes, we are sure that duty requires us to de cline the offer of his resignation." "We state as a fact that Professor Bas sett does not believe in nor does he teach social equality, and we have confidence in 'him both as a man and a teacher. "(Signed) T. F. MARH, ? J. H. SOi'THGATE. "Committee." Hanged Editor in Effigy. After the announcement of the action of the trustees a large number of students gathered on the college campus and iianged in effigy Editor Josephus Daniels, whose paper, the News and Observer, had led the tight against the doctrine promulgated by Professor Bassett. Changes in Officers' Stations. Changes in the stations and duties of offi cers of the quartermaster's department have been ordered as follows: Colonel C. A. H. McCauley, at New York, has been ordered to assume charge of the general quartermaster's depot at Jefferson ville, Ind.. relieving Lieutenant Colonel Samuel R. Jones, who is ordered to Omaha for duty as chief quartermaster of the De partment of the Missouri, as the relief of Captain William E. Horton of his tempora ry duties in charge of that office. Captain Horton will remain at Omaha as assistant to Lieutenant Colonel Jones. a little accent of bitterness. "1 beseech you by my love that you do not doubt it!" Hesitation gave way be fore a warmth of reproach. "For a man to know that he has' wounded what he would have died to shield?that lie has wronged where he would have given his life to honor?that it may be he has lost what is body and soul to him?what else is that but suffering ?" It was only a very little that her face turned toward him, and he could not see how her downcast eyes were taking fire from his voice. He .stood looking at her in de spair, until something in the poise ot her head taught him a new rune among love's spells. Drawing sofHy near her, he spoke in noblest conciliation: "Is it your pride that cannot pardon me. Lady of Avalcomb?

Except in prayer or courtesy, we are not loose of knee, we Angles, but I would stoop as low as I low est might if that could make you kinder, dear one.'' Baring his head, he knelt down in the abbey, was the difference between and the time when he had bent before her in tho abbey, was the differene between tender jest and tenderest earnest. "Thus then do I ask you to give me back your love," he said gently?and would have said more but that she turned, sliried to a kind of generous shame. "It needs not that, lord! I know you d'd not mean it. And they have told me that? that I have no right to be angry with you ?? she broke off, as looking into his face she saw something that startled her into forgetfulness of all else. "Why are your cheeks so hollow?" she demanded. "And so gray?as though you had lost blood? Lord, what has come near you?'' He could not conceal the sudden pleasure he got out of her alarm for him. even while he answered as lightly as he could that it was no more than the fatigue of his three days in the saddle; and a lack of food, per haps, as he had been somewhat pressed for time; and a lack of sleep because of But she was a warrler's daughter, and she would not be put off. Coming close to him, she pulled aside the dusty cloak, hot as a live coal In the glare of the day, and ti,ere?behold!?there were blood stains on the breast of his blue kirtle. Forgetful of everything else, she flung her arms around him as though to shield him. "Sebert, you are woundeaS What is It?" Nothing that troubled him very much, apparently, for his haggard face had grown radiant with gladness.

C.. last night says that Deputy Collector McCoy and state dispensary constables searched the registered distillery of Tully Babb and found some contraband liquor. On leaving the premises the officers were fired upon from an adjoining woods with pistols and Winchesters by Babb and four of his as sociates. The officers returned the fire, and fully fifty shots were exchanged. The ammunition being exhausted, the consta bles and moonshiners had a hand-to-hand fight. Four of the liquor men were ar rested. No one was seriously wounded. as I was journeying back from my errand in Northampton. Little affection has ever passed between us, and this time something more than usual seemed to have stirred him against me, for?" "He tried to kill you!" The words were not a question, but a breathless assertion, as she remembered the Jotun's last threat. "He tried to kill me," the marshal assent ed quietly. "And his blade did manage to pierce my mail; he is a giant in strength as in other things, tiut it cut no more than fiesh, and after that Fortune wheeled not toward him." "You slew him!" Her lips were white as she gasped it. but he knew now that it was no love for the Jotun that moved her, and he answered promptly to her unspoken thought: "No, sweet?for the king's sake I spared him. Before this, his men have taken him aboard his ship and England is rid of him." Murmuring broken phrases of thanksgiv ing, she stood holding the cloak she had grasped, but he dreaded too much the mo ment of her awakening to await its com ing inactive. Slipping his arms around her, he began to speak swiftly, the moment her silence gave him an opening. "Never did I blame Rothgar much for his enmity against me, and now I thank him for this cut as for a gift, for through it I know that at least you have not outlawed me from your love. Dear one. as you are not unkind to so slight a thing as this wound in my flesh, so neither be without pity for the one that is so much deeper, in my heart! As the scratch stayed your anger for a while, so, in the gentleness of love, let this which is mortal stay it for all time." With his arms around her. she could not shrink very far away?nor was it segn that she tried to?but all at once her words came In uneven rushes: "How can I hold anger against you when with every breath my lips sigh for your kisres? Yet let no one wonder at it that I am frightened. ? ? * You cannot conceive what a lurk ing place for terrors the world looks to me! Never, I think, shall I see men sit ting together that I shall not suspect them of having murder in their hearts. Never shall I see two friends clasp hands but my mind will run forward to a time when they shall part in wrath and loneliness. Nay, even of the sound of my own voice I am afraid, lest whomsoever is hearing it?for all that he speak me fair?be twisting the words in his mind into evils I have not dreamed of. Sebert, I do not reproach you With-* it! I think it all the fault of my own blunders?and therein I find a new terror. That one should suffer f6? wrong-doing is to be looked for, but it (Tear Me Out.)

Augustin Morales, president of the provisional government of Santo Do mingo, had a long interview last night with United States Minister Powell, during: which he demanded that Senor Galvan. former minister of finance, should be with drawn from the board appointed by the government of President Wos y Gil to ar bitrate the claims of the Santo Domingo Improvement Company. Minister Powell declined to grant this demand and supplemented his declination by the statement that the United States government could only recognize the pro visional government of Santo Domingo when it agreed to strictly observe all the acts and engagements entered Into by for mer governments with the United States. It is reported here that a disturbance^ headed by Gen. Candelario Roeo, has broken out at Barahona, on the south coast of the island.

A dispatch from New Haven, Conn., last night says that in a fit of jealous rage over the continued rejection of his attentions Thomas McCabe forced his way into the kitchen of a private house on Crown street and severely slashed Miss Hattie Gilmore across the face with a razor. McCabe then committed suicide by drinking car bolic acid. one is to be dealt with so unsparingly only for making mistakes, who knows where his position is or what to expect? Oh, my best friend, make me brave or I am likely to die only through fearing to live! With my ignorance my boldness went from me, until now my courage is lowly as a willow leaf. Love, make me brave again!" Trusting, in her very decla ration of distrust, she clung to him to save her from herself. It was in the biiar-pricked fingers which he was pressing against his cheeks that he fomid liis answer. Suddenly he spread them out in his palm before her. laughing with joyful lightness. "Randalin, th? tnorns wounded your hands the while that you stripped yonder hedge, but did you stop for that? If I can prove to you that all these dark days you have been but plucking roses, can y u not bravely bear with the pricks?" Putting her gently from him. he gathered up the sp.ils she had let fall, picking from among them with great care the fairest of either kind, while she. catching his mood, watched him April-faced. "This," he said gaily, "is the red rose of my heart. Battlefields lay between us and tower walls, anu the way was long and hard to find, yet can you deny, my ell, that you came in and plucked it and wore it away in your hair?to keep or to cast aside ag.pleased you?" Smiles, and tears growing together, she caught the blossom from him and pressed it to her lips. "I will wear it in my bosom," she answered, "for my breast has been empty?since the day I saw you first." Smiling, he held out the white rose, but his mood had deepened until now he looked down upon her as he had looked down upon her in the moonlit forest. "This, beloved, is the symbol of my faith," he said. "Your eyes took it from me that day at evensong. I hold it the dearer of the two, for with It goes my honor that is as stainless as Its petuls. It is worth more than life to me?is it not worth some pricks to you?" She took it from him reverently, to lay it beside the other, and as> her face was too -proud for fear so was It too tender for jesting. "I am more honored," she told him. "th^n Canute by his crown; and I will live as bravely to defend them." But as he would have caught her to him, she leaned back suddenly to stretch a hand toward a dark-robed figure standing under the moss-grown arch, and her pride melted Into a laugh of breathless happiness. "Sis ter Wynfreda, you were very right," sh? called softly, "the world cam be so beautiful that one has no hunger for heaven." (The end.)
