MI JJUGEOIIGE (Continued.) "Kelvin's new tusk was an agreeable one. He took np pleasant quarters in Washington and bepan to entertain the list of senators whom Bree counted as among his assets, and gradually his circle of acquaintances grew. He was gone about three months, and when he returned he sent for Rollins. 'Hare you sent Hennerdon and Far mer and the others their rebates 7" he asked. "Yesterday, np to the 1st of the month," replied Rollins. "Why?" . "Because there are to be no more. Collect your flat rate and keep It without a single exception. We've won." "Rebate to the United rood com pany, as usual, Rollins," Interrupted Breed, with a chuckle. "That's my only profit 6n bread now. you know, sirce Kelvin reduced it to cost. And rebate in cash, Rollins, always in cash!" "But I dont quite understand," pro , tested Rollins. "Can't they legislate against us effectively now?" ; "Scarcely," returned Kelvin, with a - smile, "since we ourselves are the law making body, so long as we keep the public from clamoring too much to their servants in Washington. - rve Just purchased stock iu the govern ment former assets of Hepperdon and Itaymer and their fellow bandits to fire us control." , Rolling looked troubled. "I don't . like it," he said. , "Nonsense!" declared Kelvin, "We're using If to a good end. You can estab lish your flat rate now as you planned In the first place. We're going to be gin the battle of the trusts in earnest." "The battle of the trusts.; repeated Bolllns musingly. "It sounds interest ing at least." ' "It won't be, though, replied Kel vin, with contempt. "There will be no battle whatever. I'm merely going to chloroform them on the eve of the presidential nomination. -About the most popular Idea that was ever put before the vast, unsuccessful majori ty of the voting public is the graded property tax. Well, I'm going to flame' Into print with the suggestion for a graded corporation tax and then have Mr. Breed's carefully tamed legisla tors frame that suggestion into a bill and pass it into a law. The wealthier the corporation the more It will be taxed pro rata until toward the top the tax will become prohibitive. The law Is already as good as passed, and I Imagine that it will be quite a shock to your old friends Heppertton and . Valentine and Raymer. Speed. Melton Sears & Co. and a few others. Eh. Mr. Brfeedr But Ilenry Breed did not hear Phil lip. He had Just taken from the drawer of his desk a handful of pho tographs, a piece of red wax crayon, a hammer and some tacks and was starting for the rear study. As he passed rhlllip caught a glimpse of the top photograph. It was a portrait of Hepperdon. A cheaply dressed fellow, a big man with a thick neck and broad shoulders and arms that hung crooked at the el bows, alighted at a tittle wilderness station on the Long Island railroad behind Kelvin and Sam. A farmer like native approached thehnore pros: perous appearing rhlllip. "You. Mr. Ke'jinT he demanded. -The same." replied Kelvin. "This Is Mr. Purser, I believe?" "I reckon so." admitted the other. "Old Hayseed Purser." " Kelvin clambered into the front seat of a dilapidated surrey. Mr. Purser fixed upon Kelvin a contemplative gaze. Ton 'don't want .to see that scrub oak land we wrote each other about," he suddenly advised, with engaging bluntness. "You're no cheap lot boomer. You're lookin' for a summer home." "No." objected Kelvin, still smiling. Til look at the scrub oak property, I thluk." At this moment the big, workman looking fellow stepped up to Mr. Pur ser. "Could you tell me where I'd find a few acres of cheap ground fit for market gardening?" he asked. There ain't any such property left on Long Island." declared Mr. Purser emphatically. "The land between this railroad and the water ain't cheap, and the land back o that you couldn't grow anything on. It Is all. sand dunes." ' "111 look at what you have any how." replied the other. "AH right." said Mr. Purser reluc tantly. "Just crawl In the buggy there." They drove from the station and. ' turning from the highway by and by. struck on Into a scarcely defined road through the wilderness of stunted oaks and pines. "Well, here you see It," said Mr. Purser deprecatlngly. "I might drive you for hours, and it's all Just like this." "What Is it worth 7 asked Kelvin. "I reckon I could turn over a thou sand acres of It runnin around forty snd fifty dollars an acre." "A thousand acres," mused Kelvin. "How much money, on the average, do make a year?" That's pretty nigh a personal ques tion, ain't itr "It's a business question." returned Kelvin. "I want to buy all this sort of land you can secure within eighty five miles of Broadway. I'd like, to Mre you for one year to represent me exclusively in this matter. How much do you want?" "Well." said Mr. Purser, slowly cal culating, "last year I made nigh on to f4.000 In commissions." "Very good," said Kelvin. Til give you Ore thousand for this year, be , ginning now. Do you suppose you caa save me the amount of your sal- IIME COPYRGHTn900. 11)1 BOBB3 Mc.RRIU.Ca aryT "I reckon I could." said Mr. rurser. "I reckon there ain't anybody on this Island can dicker for property as good as I can." "It's a bargain, then, is itr' Inquired Kelvin. "Yes. I reckon It is. Begins right now. don't it?" "Begins rirht now." t" think that will he about all for the present," said Kelvin and rose to K& .:,. ' CHAPTER XVT. 1 HE stranger went back to New ' . York on the same train with Kelvin. As was- quite natural, he took the subway where Kel vin did and followed into the. same car. He also left the train at the same uptown station, and Kelvin noticed with a frown that he followed up the street When Kelvin and Sam turned in at their hotel, however, the man passed on, and Phillip convinced him self that the thing had been merely a coincidence. It did seem to him. how- eer, that wherever he went recently i he found some poorly dressed stranger j with him. always a different man, but ' ! always having that indefinable uir of j fcelng a workman out of a Job. " j That night the stranger in an obscure lodging house- wrote a long -and la- borlously scrawled letter, which he i afterward translated into cipher, to George Blagg at Forest Lakes, and Kelvin in his splendidly furnished apartments at the expensive Esplanade wrote a full report of his day's doings to Henry Breed, also at Forest Lakes. Kelvin seemed to be going in rather extensively for" real estate, for .the morning found him poring over an Immense hand drawn map of New York city whereon three large sec tions were blackly shaded. While he was copying some figures one Patsy McCalken, a red faced man with a mole on his nose, was announced. To him Kelvin displayed the blot over which he had been busy and asked pertinent questions about It. "It's no use. Mr. Kelvin," announced Mr. McCalken. "I don't know who's behind you unless - It's old Henry Breed, but the man don't live that ran swing them precincts away from the big chief. And you say there's nawthin' doin' with him." "But they're your precincts," object ed Kelvin. "I am told that they lie iin the hollow of your hand: that they vote as you tell them to the last man: that they'd follow you Into the river." Mr.. McCalken only grinned. "Any how, there's no chance on earth, ho matter how much was no matter how strong the arguments that . might be held out." "All right, then," concluded Kelvin briskly. "Jf you can't swing that dis trict to my principal I'll have to take it away from you." Mr. McCalken's grin became a guf faw. "When you do that." said he. taking his hat. 'Til say you're a L.g ger man than Dick Croker'ever was." "We expect to make Mr. Croker a' dim and faded memory of ineffective ness," announced Kelvin, smiling and looking at his watch. ' His next caller was of a 'different type. "Hello. Pellman." said Phillip heartily, coming . forward to shake hands with him. "It's as good to see you as It was to hear your voice over the phone the other day. . How are things coming with you? "Rotten, fhank you." confessed Pell man, with a wry smile. "I don't mind admitting that you broke me so com pletely I . can't start anything big enourrh to inspire confidence." "Would It inspire any confidence if you were known to be engineering the most enormous real estate deaf ever consummated In New York?" Pellman's eyes began to brighten. "It would have to be a big one," he warned. "Would you call it abig one to buy these districts?" And Kelvin indicated the three shaded spots on his map. "Buy them!" gasped Pellman. "He barely glanced at the map and then surveyed Kelvin in astonishment. "Why! man" He paused. Words were lame things. . "Well. I want them," declared Kel vin. "The reason I have sent for you is t4. OMr "BUT THEM ' GASPED FE&XiUAN. that I must not appear in this, even by the slightest hint, nor must Mr. Breed. Do you care to undertake the deal for immediate manipulation?" "Well," returned Pellman, "I don't think I could start at it in much less than thirty minutes." In less than an. hour after Pellman had gone Senator Sawyer found Kelvin busy over another large map. this time of the United States. Here and then districts were lightly shaded, in other places ' they were cross-hatched. ir others left In pure white. The senator was gravely glad to see his dear youn; friend. Mr. Kelvin: gravely anxlou about his physical condition and a gravely solicitous about the health o. his dear old friend. Mr. Henry Breed. "As for myself." Kelvin smilingly informed him. "I shall leave you to judge. As for Mr. Breed, he is hearty eaough to desire myself and Mr. Rol lins nominated for the offices respec tively of president and vice president of the United States by your party at the convention this coming spring." "Am I to understand that you are In earnest about this??' the senator pain fully inquired. "Certainly." replied Kelvin calmly. "As earnest as we were about break ing up Mr. Hepperdon's monopoly." Mr. Sawyer winced He had rmce been Hepperdon's chief senator and had only recently, upon the unfortu nate dissolution of Mr. Hepperdon's combine, associated himself with Mr. Breed. "We have every prospect of success," Kelvin evenly resumed. "In the first place, as the absolute proprietor of every ounce of bread and cereal food stuff in the United States, Mr. Breed had a great many friends and useful advisers among the the various legis lative bodies of the country." Sena tor Sawyer gravely nodded his head. "In the second place, after he had se cured control over every mile of rail road In the United States. Mr. Breed took a notion to" do a little trust bust ing which proved highly successful, and thereupon he became possessed by reason of his immense anchorage facilities of several other suddenly .at tached friends and useful advisers. Quite a little army, senator." "Y-e-s." slowly admitted Mr. Sawyer, with great mournfulness. The senator had been harboring quite other plans than those proposed by Kelvin. "You will find, senator." .went on Kelvin, "that the tampaign is perfect ly mapped out. I wish to remain, as does Mr. Rollins, an ostensible dark horse up to the very hour of the nomi nation, and your operations will need to be as quietly conducted as possible. Our headquarters will comprise pri vate apartments for yourself and such others as you care to have with you. and all living expenses will, of course, go In with the other items of expendi ture. There will naturally be a gener ous honorarium attached. I shall be highly gratified if you will'take charge of the bureau, as will Mr. Breed snd Mr. Rollins." Mr. Breed's request, coming through Kelvin, was an order. "The entire matter comes as a surprise to me," said the senator, "but as a very pleas ant .-prise. I can see a most Inter esting campaign stretching before us. and.it will afford me keen delight if 1 can tn any way contribute to the. suc cess of two such remarkable young men as yourself and Mr. Rollins." Herbert Rensselaer called bewailing the fact that his revered -aunt was cheerfully sacrificing the absurdly large salary which she denied that she received to ': make a dwaddler out of him because a Rensselaer must not work. "I am supposed to repay her by marrying the aforesaid Lillian, who doesn't know It yet." he said. "Hon estly, Kelvin.! If something doesn't turn up upon which I may expend a little man power energy I'll explode by arid by. 1 . "Just possess your soul in patience." advised Kelvin, smiling. "Wait until I am elected president, and IU make a cabinet officer of you." ' "Nonsense." ' protested Herbert. "I have, no qualifications, old chap. "Yes, but you have." insisted Kelvin, speaking quite seriously. "You can not be influenced, coerced or bought." Young, Rensselaer' suddenly straight ened up. "You are right," said he with a snap of his Jaws; "and you may bet your, last penny upon It that IU car ry out your orders absolutely, wher ever you put me, whether in the cabi net or at the head of an army." "You might even have a chance at that," returned Kelvin dryly. Rensse laer departed and Rollins came in. "I have a brilliant solution for your Long Island transportation problem," he began with enthusiasm. "I can de liver commuter trains to your farthest point if it does not exceed the eighty five mile run you promised in one hour from the bridge subway station." Kelvin nodded in satisfaction. ' "1 knew you could work it out" he com mented. 'Til have the necessary per mits in two weeks, and you can begin construction - at once. In the mean time let - me show you a new map." And from the thick pile of such dia grams upon his desk he drew one showing . the entire consolidated rail road system of the United Spates. "Rollins, in your mastership of every mile of railroad in the United States you . have the most powerful political engine ever devised by man." "I don't like it to be prostituted to this use." protested Rollins. The same old cry." returned Kel vin, with a slightly exasperated laugh. "You ought to be satisfied. I don't know how many millions of graft you have eliminated. You've equalized freight rates so that the small shipper has an equal chance with the big one. You've been able to break up a score of top heavy monopolies and trusts. You've accomplished at least half your designs." . . "I know," granted Rollins; "but. even so, I have been compelled for political reasons to give rebates which I had sworn I would never give. I have been compelled .for political pur poses to make concessions which I had sworn I would never make." "You're the most persistent chap," complained Kelvin. "When we have a congress and a senate of our own choice we can carry out all the Uto pian plans of both Breed and our selves. These concessions that you are making are only investments, as Breed would say." Rollins looked up curiously. "I dpn't quite understand Breed," said he. "He seems at tims to possess all his old shrewdness, but. at other times to be Involved In a maze of mysticism." Kelvin frowned. "He's spending too much time with his Bible." he declar ed. "He's Intemperate with It." " Kelvin, returning shortly after mid night from his evening with Rensse laer, went directly to his own sleep ing apartment, which was at the ex treme end of his suit. Sam. crouchinp on the floor In the corner with pil lows and cushions at his back, opened his coal black eyes unblinklngiy. pass ing instantly from profound sleep to alert wakefulness. Kelvin having by this time sat down, Sam removed his THE FARMER; 1VIARCH 26, 1J I master's shoes and placed comfortable j slippers on his feet. While he was I at work be looked up with a sudden shrill chuckle and a grin so wide that it brke into queer curves the long, straight scar on his cheek. "What are you laughing at, Sam?" asked Phillip. "Oh. Jes' nothin'," declared Sam, and chuckled still more. "I bet you are thinking of Lucy," charged Phillip. "Ah reckon Ah am." confessed Sam, with a laugh that ended In a shrill falsetto. "Lucy an' sumpln' else." "Something else, eh? What is it? "Ah aln' done s'pose to tell,", gig gled Sam. "Got t' have a secret once in awhile, boss." Sam busied himself about the re maining preparations for Kelvin's re tiring and while he did so gave vent to occasional chuckles, to which, how ever, Kelvin paid but little attention, for already be was immersed In that half hour of revel in the vast gilded halls of the future which was his one j habitual , dissipation befoVe retiring, t and he scarcely realized when Sam j had departed for the night so. occu- pled was he with his boundless enter i prises and ambitions. Olympus! With ! that height alone would he be con tent, and he had no bodily or spirit uaL mental or moral clog to weight him down. . In-bis. exultation he rose to his full height, obeying an Instinct which Im pelled him to stand that he might feel the. superb . strength of his body and of his soul and of his will untrammel ed by any weakening support. As he did so the slight and cautious click of a knob and the slight, careful creak of a door startled him. He turned hastily in the direction from which the sounds had come. The end door of his suit was the customary twin affair by which hotel apartments are separated. On tnfclnir these flnnrtmenta h hnd ftried his own door and found It locked. but nevertheless It was this door which was opening. CHAPTER XVn. Tt TOUCH of bright color and a glittering eye were visible j now in the crack of the door. J The apparition which con fronted hlra proved to be Lillian Ereed. slender but exquisitely rounded in the silk kimouo which revealed her white throat and her shapely forearms, warm against the soft crimson fabric. Her dainty feet were incased in fur edged slippers of red felt Her hair and her eyes seemed blacker than ever. Her face, a perfect oval, was warmed by the rich color of abundant blood. Her pointed chin was dimpled, and her scarlet lips were curved in a smile, half of mischief and half of delight. "Lillian r gasped Kelvin. , Her eyes sparkling, she put her fin gers upon her lips and noiselessly clos ed her own door, then Phillip's, behind her, then advanced to him with out stretched hands. He took them in his own as a matter of course, but held her at arm's length. "What are you doing here?" he de manded. "Have you gone mad?" VNot at all," she laughed gayly. "I'm quite sane and sensible, thank you. It was lonesome -at Forest Lakes, so 1 brought Mrs. Rensselaer up to chap eron me for a week's shopping, and just now. after making sure that you would be quite alone for the rest of the even ing. I have merely dropped In to have a chat with my old friend." "Mrs. Rensselaer? Where is she?" asked Phillip. "Sound asleep and snoring in her own apartment, which is on the other side of mine, with the bathroom be tween and my door locked. I attend ed to that all right, you may be sure. You .don't seem at all glad to see me. though," and she pouted with much coquetry. ' "I'm not." answered Phillip, push ing her away almost roughly. "This is the utmost folly. You must return to your own room, and in the morn ing yon must move to some other floor or I shall. No; you must go to some other hotel." "I shan't move from the hotel." she said, looking up Into his eyes and laughing as she shook her head. "1 shan't move, from these apartments I shan't move from this room even until I get ready to go. Phillip, 1 have been ordered around like a child ever since I can remember, and now I'm going to revolt I'm going to have the things I want, right or wrong, and among them I'm going to have you!" "Lillian!" he gasped and drew back from her. And yet he could not look down upon her flushed cheeks., upon her . moist, red lips, upon the rounded column of her throat, with, revolt "You are a conqueror," Lillian went on. drawing closer. "Your hand is the hand of might, the hand that could grasp 'and .wield with relentless pow er either sword or scepter. You do not enow Low I, too. love power and all that represents power. I love It so much that I could worship it even while it crushed and destroyed me. The very strength of these arms I want for mine." Her own arm had slipped up and slid around his neck, and suddenly she had clasped both of them about him and clung to him. For a moment longer he resisted, and then he sud denly crushed her to him and rained kisses upon her smooth brow, her silken eyelids, her burning cheeks, her soft lips. (To Be Continued.)
