Knowledge of Law.
All three stood still. Not a sound was
heard except faint, quick breathing. Ath
lyne tried to think, hut his brain seemed
numb. He knew that now was a crisis if
not the crisis of the whole affair. It
I chilled him with a deathly chill to thin.*
j that Joy must have heard all the con
versation between her father and himself
What a remembrance for her In all the
empty years to come! What^ sorrow,
what paint Presently he heard behind
him as he stood facing her a sound which
was rather a groan -than an ejaculation
a groan endowed with articulated utter
"Good God:" Unconsciously he re
peated the word under his breath:
' Good God!" , ,
' Joy. with a fixed high-strung look.
I stepped down into the room. She stooa
i beside Athlyne, who. as she came close to
I him. turned with her so that together
they faced her father. Col. Ogilvie said,,
in a slow whisper., the words dropping
out one by one: ?{_???
"Have?you?been?there?all?the t.me.
Did?you?hear?all?we?said?*' She an
swered boldly:
"Yes! I was there and heard e\en
tiling!" Again a long pause of silence,
ended by Col. Ogilvie's next question:
"Why did you stay?" Joy answered 8t
once; her quick speech following the slow
tension sounded almost voluble. .
"I rould not get away. I wanted to.
but there is no other door to the J"'00?
That is why I came out here when i
woke. * ? ? I could not get my
which the maid had taken last night,
and I wanted to get away as quickly as
possible. And, father. being there, |
1 though I had to move about dressing m> -
self. 1 could not help hearing every
thing!" Tier father had evidently ex
pected that she would say something
more, for as she stopped there he looked
at her expectantly. There was a sort of
drv sob in his throat. Athlyne stood still
and silent: he hardly dared to breathe,
lest he should unintentionally thwart
joy's purpose. For with all his Instincts
he realized that she had a purpose. He
knew that she understood her father
and that she was the most potent force
to deal with him: and knowing this he
felt that the best thing he could do would
be to leave her quite free and unham
pered to take her own course. He kept nis
eyes on her face, gazing at her unthink
ingly. Her face was fixed?not Rtern.
but set to a purpose. Somehow at that
moment he began to realize how well he
understood her. Without more help than
his eyes could give him. he seemed to
follow the workings of her mind. For
| her mind was changing. At the firs, hei
expression was of flinty fixedness; but a*,
she continued to look at the old man it
softened, and with the softening her In
tentloned silence gave way. Her lovers
thoughts translated thus:
"T will protect my?him against my
father. He has threatened him: he is
forcing him to death. I shall not help
him bv sparing him a pang, an awkward
ness. And yet-why that? He is an old
man?and my father! That white iiaIj
demands respect. He is angir?hard and
untendor now; but his life has boen a
tender one to me?and he is my rather.
Thosigh I am determined to save my
lover?my husband. I need not in the do
ing cause that white head to sink in
shame: I can spare him the pang of what
he mav think ingratitude in me. And.
after all. he has what must seem to him
lust cause of offense. ? ? ? He cannot ?
will not understand. ? * * He is ?rave
and proud, and has a code of honor
which is more than a religion. And he.
my lover?my husband, is brave too. And
as unyielding as my father. And he is
willing to die-for me. To die for me
?mv honor, my happiness. Though his
dviiig Is worse-far worse than death to
me. ? * * But he Is dying bravely?and ??
that was to have been his wife?must die
bravelv. worthily, too. If he can suffer
and die in silence, so. too, must I.
' It seemed a. natural Sequence of thought
when she said to her father:
"Daddy, do you know you have not
said a word to me yet. hat nave 1
ever done in my life that you should not
trust me now? Have I ever Hed to jnu
that yoq cannot trust me to answer truly
when you ask mo-ask me anything. \\ hy
don't you ask me now? I know t.iat
things do not look well. T realize that
vou must have befn "hocked when you
came Into the room. But, daddy. dear,
there are few things In the world that
cannot be explained?at any rate, in
part. Don't forget that I am a worn-n
now. I am no longer a child, who^c lg
norance Is her innocence. Speak to me.
Ask me what you will, and I will answer
vou truly! Hear mc, even as you would
Kn t. .n. dyln*! For lnd?;d it l? -??
If you carrv out your Intention, as i
have heard It expressed. I shall no
live; there will be nothing for me to
^ "Do you mean that you will commit
sulcidc?" said her father.
"Oh no! I hope I have pluck enough
to live?If T can. Do not fear for rre.
daddy! I shall play the game full, as he
will do." As Bhe spoke she pointed a
flnjrer at Athlyne. She felt now", and
for the first time, acutely that she? did
not know what to call him before a third
person-even her father. Athlyne looked
relieved by her words. When
of dying he had grown sadly white, he
shared her father's apprehension Col
Ogllvie saw the change In his look. and
took It ill. As may be surmised, a part
of his anger toward Athlyne arose from
jealousy. Until this man had appeared
upon the scene his "little girl was his
alone; no other man shared inhcr af
fection. As sho was an only child all his
parental affection had been centered In
her. Though he might have been pre
pared to see her mate with a man of his
own choosing?or at any rate of his ac
ceptance. he wan Jealous of the man who
had stepped in. unaccredited and wanting
In deference to himself. It must ha\e
been a tinge of this jealousy which
prompted his next question Turning
with a bitter formality to Athlyne he
I suppose you are satisfied, no*'' B'{"
Whatever may come, my daughter is
estranged from me; and It Is your do
ing'" In answer Joy and Athlyne spoke
together. Said the latter:
"Oh sir!" There he stopped: he feared
to say more lest his anger snould master
him But the protest was effective. the
old man fiushed-over forehead and ears
and neck. Joy spoke In a ^erant ;
"There Is no estrangement, daddy, dear,
and therefore It can he no one s doing.
Least of all coutd such a thing come
from this man who loves me. and
and whom I love." As she spoke she
blushed divinely, and taking her
richt hand between both her nands held
it tiaht This seemed for some reason
to Infuriate her father afresh. Ho strode
forward toward Athlyne as though about
to strike him. But at the instant there
came a quick rap on the door. In
stlnctivelv he drew away. and. having
called out "Come!" slood expoctlngly
and seemingly calm. The door opened
slightly and the voice of the sheriff was
h<**May I come in? T am Alexander Fen
wick. sheriff of Galloway!" As he was
SDeaking he entered the room with a for
i^l bow to each In turn. He continued
to speak to Col. Ogilvie:
"You will pardon this intrusion. I hope,
sir Indeed I trust you will not look upon
it as an Intrusion at all when you know
the reason of my coming. Col. Ogilvie s
habit of old-fashioned courtesy came at
once to the fore with the coming of a
stranrer. With a bow which to those
reared in a newer and less formal school
of manners seemed almost grandiloquent.
h "i" ?Lme here on some business. and on
mv arrival a few minutes ago was asked
bv our landlady?an old servant of my
own?who on that account thought that
she might ask what she thought a favor
_to come up here. She thought, poor,
anxious soul, that some unpleasantness
might be afoot as she heard high words,
and feared a quarrel. All the more on
account of a sudden arrival of a gentle
man who seemed somewhat Incensed.
This I took from her description of the
personality to be you. sir. Indefd. I
I recognize all the points, except that of
| the anger!" As he spoke he bowed with
pleasant courtesy. TW other bowed too.
j partly in answer to the implied question
and partly in recognition of the expressed
courtesy of the words and manner.
While he had been speaking the sheriff
had been watching keenly those around
him. He had been for so long a time in
the habit of forming his opinio-.- rather
by looks than words that the situation
seemed to explain itself; young lovers,
angry father. This opinion was justified
and sustained by the confidence which
had been given to him by Athlyne on the
previous afternoon. He had been, on en
tering the room, rather anxious at the
state of affairs; but now he began to
breathe more freaiy. He felt that his ex
perience of life and of, law might really
be here of some service. But his profes
sion had also taught him wariness and
caution; also not to speak on side issues
till he knew the ground thoroughly. Joy
he read like an open book. There was
no mistaking her love, her anxiety, her
apprehension. Athlyne he knew some
thing of already, but he now saw in his
face a warning look which bade him be
silent regarding him. He diagnosed Col.
Ogilvie as a proud, masterful, vain, pas
sionate man: something of a prig: tender,
tn a way he understood himself: faithful
to his word; relentless to an expressed
intention: just?according 10 his own
ideas of right and wrong. Weighing
these attributes for his own pacific pur
poses he came to the conclusion that his
first effort at conciliation should be made
with regard to the last mentioned. So he
began, shaking in a manner of courtly
and deferential grace:
"1 trust, sir. you will yield to me the
consideration often asked by, and some
times granted to a well intentioned man,
however bungling the same might be in
thought or method or manner." Col.
Ogilvie conceded the favor with a gra
cious bow. Thus emboldened, if not jus
tified. he went on:
"I fain would ask that I might be al
lowed to make something in the nature of
a short statement, and to make it with
out interruption or expostulation. You
will understand why presently." Again
the gracious acquiescence: he continued:
"You are, I take it, a stranger to this
country: though, if I am not misled by
namo and lineament, claiming Scottish
j forbears?" Col. Ogilvie's bow came more
naturally this time. llis inlying pride
; was coming to the rescue of common
? sense.

Committee on Church Co-Operation
and Department of Social Service
in Joint Session.
The proposition for a "charitable and
philanthropic council" of Washington
was discussed by the committee on church
co-operation of the Associated Charities
and representatives of the department of
social service of the Federation of Toy
men of the District of Columbia at an
informal luncheon and aftermeeting called
at the Young Men's Christian Association
building yesterday afternoon.
Those present were Rev. Roland Cotton
Smith. Charles E. Guthrie, John Van
Schalck, jr.. and Walter S. Ufford, rep
resenting the Associated Charities, and
Paul Sleman. H. G. Johnson, Grant Leet,
11.* C. Metca'lf and D. A. Davis, repre
senting the department of social service
of the Laymen's Federation.
Two Questions Discussed.
Two questions discussed were the fol
"Is the time ripe for the organization
of a generkl council, such council to
be composed of delegates from the
churches and from cacli local charitable,
philanthropic and correctional organiza
tion of the District, to meet monthly
from October to March, inclusive. It
i would bo the purpose to make such
meetings strictly educational, and a care
fully prepared program should be mad"
for the series, with expert speakers and
an opportunity for free discussion. The
object of such an organization would
be to bring about better co-oppration,
based on the knowledge of the n??eds for
social service in the District."
"Should we advocate and work for a
'Charity Sunday' at. which tlmp the
churches would devote on<> service to the
consideration of the charitable situation
in Washington?"
It'wa* the sense that the greatest need
at this time is for knowledge and so-or
dinatlo'ri of intelligent cffoit. It was ex
pressly stated that it is not the purpose
to duplicate existing organizations, but
rather to. bring about closer co-operation
between the churches and those at work
in the field of social service, in order that
the work of philanthropy in its various
forms may be made more effective.
Movements Need Support.
Those present recognized that there are
many movements such as "improved
housing conditions." "extension of play
grounds." "the correction of the salary
loan evil" and the warfare upon tuv-*rcu
losis that should enlist united effort of the
church, civic bodies 8nd charitable agen
cies. How to create and unify public
sentiment on the things that need to be
accomplished for Washington in order
that it may become in fact as it is in
name the capital was felt to bo a trucial
After the exchange of views on the sub
ject. In which there was general agree
ment as to the need ^r more light, a
committee of five was appointed to formu
late plans and to report to the next Joint
meeting of the Associated Charities' com
mittee on church co-operation and the
committee on social service of the .Lay
men's Federation, which will meet Mon
day, May 17, at 1 o'clock at the Young
Men's Christian Association.

Garrett. James and Trammell Are
Glen Echo Councilmen-?-Results
at Nearby Municipalities.
Municipal elections were held yesterday
in several nearby Maryland towns. In
most eases there were few- candidates.
No disturbances occurred.
At Hyattsville William P. Magruder
was elected mayor, and Herman 1*. Bur
1 gess, Harry \V. Shepherd and Stephen J.
Kelly were elected members of the
| council.
At Glen Echo Robert L* Garrett. Otto
F. James and John Trammell were
elected members of the council.
At Takoma Park three councilmen were
elected. They were John Saunders, H. E.
Rogers- and E. E. Blodgt
At Kensington E. K. B er and J. M. S.
Bowie were elected members of t lie coun
cil ever Joseph \V. Buck and J. W. Mo
Lain. Baer received 70 votes. Bowie 40,
McLain 20 and Buck 16.
At Somerset two councilmen were
elected to serve for two years. A full
vote was polled, and the successful can
didates were George H. Cooper and TV. \V.
Magruder's Majority Large.
Despite the fact that there was a great
deal of hustling between the friends of
Acting Mayor John Fainter, jr., and Wil
liam P. Magruder, candidates for the of
fice of mayor of Hyattsville, everything
passed off quietly at the election and
good feeling prevailed.
The result was a surprise to the Fainter
adherents. Many of them had admitted,
however, the vote would be close and
probably against their candidate. They
do not see how Magruder was ftble to beat
Fainter by seventy-two votes.
In addition to carrying his own ward.
Magruder carried the acting mayor's
ward by thirty-nine majority. The Ma
gruder people were expecting a substan
tial majority for Fainter In the third
ward, but Magruder got a majority of
five votes.
The entire vote in the three wards was:
For Magruder. 190; for Fainter, 118. or a
majority for Magruder of 72 votes.
In the first ward there was an animated
contest between the friends of Council
man Herman L?. Burgess and John A.
Johnson, a builder. Burgess was an ar
dent supporter of Magruder, and this un
doubtedly helped him. He was elected by
15 majority, the vote being: Burgess, 37;
Johnson. 42.
Councilman Harry W. Shepherd was re
elected from the second ward for the two
year term, receiving 99 votes. He had no
Councilman Stephen J. Kelly was re
elected from the third ward for two years,
his vote being 109. He had no opposition.
Th^ council will meet Monday even
ing next to canvass the vote. On the fol
lowing Monday evening the newl* elect
ed mayor and members of the council
will be sworn in.
The personnel of the new council will
be William P. Magruder. mayor; first
ward, Herman E. Burgess and John
Fainter. Jr.: second ward. Harry W.
? Shepherd and W. A. Brooks, and third
[.ward. Stephen J. Kelly and J. Frank
One of the main reasons that con
tributed to the peace and good order at
the polls yesterday was the fact that
Acting Mayor Fainter and the members
of the council ordered that booths be
erected inside the polling places and
that the judges hand the tickets to the
voters as they came in.
Heretofore the tickets have been dis
tributed to the candidates and their
friends upon the streets. No end of
confusion has resulted. The innovation
Is commended, however, and will doubt
less be a permanent feature in local
Administration Ticket "Wins.
The election at Glen Eclio resulted In
the selection of Robert I>. Garrett and
Otho F. James to serve two years as
successors to Councilmen Thomas A.
Weaver and Guy E. Jenkins, who did not
seek re-election, and of John Trammeli
to serve until May 1, 1910, to fill out the
unexpired term of Capt. William H.
Roach, who was recently made mayor in
place of Mayor John A. Garrett, resigned.
Opposed to Garrett and James was
John H. Darling. Trammell and K. Bruce
Aldrich fought it out.
The successful candidates composed
what was known as the "administration
ticket." The others were known as "re
formers," because they favor certain
changes in the management of Glen Echo
The contest was lively. Following the
announcement of the vote friends of the
winners celebrated by blowing horns and
ringing bells, the din lasting long Into
the night.
, The total vote received by each candi
jdate was as follows: Garrett, 35; James,
i 37; Darling. 20; Trammell. HO; Aldrich, 21.
A total of 54 votes were oast.
Daniel Collins is the hold-over member
of the council.
Three Councilmen Chosen.
The election at Takoma Park. Md.. was
for three councilmen to serve for tho en
suing two years. The election was held in
the chapel of the Takoma Park Presby
terian Church, on Maple avenue, and was
a quiet affair.
Tiie successful candidates were John
Saunders. votes; H. E. Rogers, ?!3, and
E. B. Blodgett, 52 votes. The total num
ber of votes cast was 111.
The other candidates in the race were
F. Ij. Luton, who secured .'11 votes, and
II. C. Gore. 2!). E. Norman Jackson, who
was nominated at the caucus last week,
was not present at the meeting, and de
clined the nomination offered him.
At a special meeting of the town council
last night the report of the board of elec
tions was received and approved. The
judges of the election were Norman
Brainard. chairman: L.. M. Mooers and F.
W. Longley. J. H. Van Houten was clerk
of the committee.
The new councilmen will be sworn in
Monday. June 7. Rogers and Blodgett are
members of the present council, a.nd have
been active workers during the past term.
Saunders is comparatively a new resident
of the Park, although a resident of Ridge
avenue, Takoma Park, for several years.
He is connected with the government
printing office.

for ?S 500 which Talbott recovered against
Pickford in a suit for alleged libel.
After the judgment had been affirmed
by the Supreme Court Pickford filed the
bill to enjoin its collection on the ground
that new evidence had been discovered
which established justification for the
article that was published, and that it
would be against equity and good con
science to permit the judgment to be col
The court in Its opinion says: "The rec
ord discloses no actual damage suffered
by the plaintiff in the libel suit: and it
must therefore be considered that the Jury
rendered its verdict for such a large
amount on the theory of punishing the
parties who had without just cause slanv
dered the said plaintiff; and if it turns
out that their statements in the said pub
lication were substantially true, then no
foundation whatever could be found for
the said verdict, and the judgment should
not in that event be enforced.
"I think the motion to dissolve the re
straining order should be overruled, and
I suggest' to counsel on both sides that a
speedy and satisfactory way to try the
questions herein would be to have the
court frame* issues and send same to a
circuit court for trial by jury, continuing
the restraining order or injunction until
! the coming in of the verdict."
