JOHN BURT Author of “The Kidnapped Millionaires,'* “Colonel Monroe** Doctrine,” Etc. Copyright, 1903, dy Fkedbhick Upuam Adams CHAPTER XIII—Continued. At the sight of the ore, and of the dull gloss of the nugget, a wonderful transformation took place in John Hawkins. He gazed at the ore with the rjpt look of an enthusiast. The weight of the nugget told its own story. ■’Go ahead and tell me about this,” lie said abruptly. “You look like an lionest man, and it's a waste of time to lie to me. What have you got, and how did you get it?” In tv matter of fact way John Burt related the story of the discovery ami development of the Sailor Mine. "This may be worth looking into,” said the capitalist. "I’ll send an ex pert to investigate It and make a re pot t.” He rang a bell and a boy re sponded. “Go and tell David Parker I want him,” he ordered. “Until we have arrived at some ten tative agreement or understanding. I don't care to have your expert exam ine this property,” said John Burt, when the boy had closed the door. “Your expert will And one of two things—either that my estimate of these claims is accurate, or that it is not. In the latter event you would drop the matter. If. on the contrary, your expert confirms my estimate—as he will—it then becomes necessary to act under a definite understanding. In brief, the question is this. What agreement will you make, assuming that your expert confirms my state ments?” "That sounds like business,” roared John Hawkins, a gleam of admiration for an opponent worthy of his atten tion showing in his eyes. “Make your proposition. You're selling; I'm buying. What’s your terms?" "You will assume the puyments on the Blake option, which amount to three hundred thousand dollars," said John. "In addition to you will advance the money necessary for the 7 HVWT ZkD /T'- SHCr&cZXZ3 SOYS/ J&lMRW development of the property ami for the handling of the ore. Fifty per cent of the net profits will revert to you until the money paid to Blake is refunded. In consideration of the capital thus advanced, your Interest In the property will amount to forty per cent and mine to sixty per cent.” “I won’t do it!” thundered John Hawkins, slamming down the cover of his desk. "I must have control when I invest. Make my interest fif ty-one per cent and I will talk to you. Fll'ty-one per cent or nothing." ,f Very well,” said John Burt, rising; "It is Impossible for us to agree, and well we should know It in advance. Good-day. Mr. Hawkins. I am stop ping at the Palace Hotel, ami letters sent there will be forwarded when I leave the city. Good-day. sir." Two days later John Burt received a message from David Parker, asking him to call at his office. Scientific tests had shown a much higher per centage of gold than those indicated by the crude experiments made in the cabin by John Burt. ”1 had an interview with Mr. Haw kins this morning.” said David Park er. after greeting his visitor. “Mr. Hawkins is a very peculiar man —very peculiar —as I have told you. He says you are the hardest man to deal with he ever saw—a great compliment for you. Mr. Burton. I assure you. He has had his lawyer draw up a provis ional agreement in conformity to your terms —as he understood them—and instructs me to say to you that we are invited to dine with him at his club this afternoon, when the matter may be finally arranged. If so. I am to ac company you to the mines to-mor row.” John thanked Parker, and arranged to meet him with Mr. Hawkins at a later hour. He then called on an at torney and submitted the agreement to his inspection. After making a few minor alterations, the lawye* as sured John that the agreement fully protected his interests.

Success and Failure. David Parker's report tin the Sailor Mine was submitted to Mr. Hawkins ten days later, and it more than con firmed the statements made by Jot.n Burt. Upon receipt of it. the mag nate proceeded to the mine with Burt and Parker, taking several miners 4 n whom he had absolute confidence. New claims were located on the moun tain-side. and in the valley below sn anticination of possible placer de posits. Jim Blake was delighted when In formed of John’s progress. "Hope you make millions, and am betting you will,” said Jim as they shocik hands and separated. Mr. Hawkins, David Parker and John Burt spent three nights in the cramped quarters of the log cabin, and thoroughly enjoyed themselves. On their return to San Francisco a formal agreement was signed, and John Burt and John Hawkins became partners in tlie Sailor Mine and in the scores of claims surrounding It. For eighteen months John directed the efforts of an army of men, swarm ing like ants on the mountain-side. A village sprang up In the valley and clustered about the stamp mills of Hawkins & Company. Churches, gambling houses, stores and saloons contended for patronage. Thousands of claims were staked out; but nature had ceased from her gold sowing when she finished the broad layers of the Sailor Mine and its outcroppings. The mines produced eight hundred thousand dollars In gold the first year. After deducting Blake's price, John's share in the profits was more than a hundred thousand. His dividends in the following six months were three hundted thousand. Following Mr. Hawkins' advice, he so Invested his profits as to become a millionaire be fore be bad been in California two years. Having placed the mining property on a permanent footing, and in charge of competent managers and superin tendents. he transferred his head quarters to San Francisco. He sti*l made periodical visits to the mines, where he had an office In the old log cabin; orders having been Issued not to destroy it under any circumstances. When Jim Blake received his flnU instalment of u hundred thousand dol lars. he gave a dinner in John Burt’s honor In the Occidental Hotel. Twen ty guests were present. This social function cost Blake a thousand dol lars. and ten days after the feast he was without a dollar. ‘ Mining stocks," he explained to John Burt. "I plunged on Robert Em met. and they trimmed me.” John advanced Jim ten thousand dollars, and gave him advice which was wortli more than the money. Blake followed the advice for a month. When his second Instalment was due. he had drawn so heavily agninst John tiiat he had a balance of only forty-five thousand. Two months after he had received a check for the final payment, which terminated his original property rights in the mines, he admitted to John Burt that his to tal assets did not exceed five thou sand dollars. "I have a plan.” said John, “one which will give full scope for your talents. I’ve been thinking for some time. Jim. of making-a proposition to you. I recently purchased seats on the mining and stock exchanges and wish to become a silent partner in an investing and brokerage firm. I will furnish most of the capital; hut for reasons that you will appreciate, I prefer to remain in the background.

In order that you may have a substantial Interest In the firm, I will advance you a hun dred thousand dollars on your future profits from the Sailor Mine, and in vest with tlie firm four hundred thou sand of my own money. What do you think of my proposition?" "Nothing would suit me better, but I’m nfraid I’m not qualified for such a position," said Blake, delighted be yond measure. Once more the path to wealth opened out before him. “I know your Qualifications,” said John. “You will become the most popular and capable broker in San Francisco.” Announcement of tho establishment of the new firm was made the follow ing week. Mr. Hawkins refused to confirm or deny the popular rumor that he was tho banker of the con cern; and no one suspected Hint John Burt had any financial Interest in it. Blake & Company first attracted speculative attention by its masterly handling of the corner in the stock of Don Pedro Smelting and Mining Com pany. The profits of the firm were estimated at a million anil a half. John Hawkins was publicly named ns the manipulator and principal winner, but James Blake was hailed us tho daring operator whose brilliant gen eralship had crowned the success of the deal. In the speculative firma ment he suddenly biased forth as a star of the first magnitude. James Blake suddenly developed traits which bewildered his friends and surprised himself. Under tiie guidance of John Burt he masteied the details of the business, displaying ability In dealing with the Intricacies which formed the daily routine. In capable of acting for himself, he could follow a chartered course with tho precision of a pilot. Nature hnd denied to James Blako that spark of genius which Inspires the leader, but In* possessed in a high degree those traits which leadership attracts ami invests with power. Ho grasped Burt’s plans of campaign with the intuition of a Bernadette, and ex ecuted them with the dash and skill of a Murat. In the two years which followed, wealth poured Into the cof fers of James Blake & Company. Blake’s name figured in great finan cial transactions, ami his opinion v/ns eagerly sought I attera <>i commer cial moment. Handsome as Apollo, and the reputed possessor of a largo fortune, he became a society lion, a popular club man and the target fo matrimonial archers. Blake accepted his honors with oig nlty and modesty. He was willing and proud to shine in the reflected light of John Burt. He would have endured unmerited disgrace as se renely as he wore unwon honors. From the moment when Peter Burt stood with uplifted arms In the light ning's glare and gave him a blessing. John Burt had no doubt of his finan cial future. With his eyes fixed un waveringly on an immediate purpose, he had boldly commanded fortune to do his bidding. A profile portrait of Jessie Carden rested on an easel which stood near the desk In his library. It was ‘ho work of an artist of local fame, drawn from a tintype photograph—his solo memento of the women he loved. Tho pink paper frame, with a design In hearts and roses, which surrounded the photograph, was frayed and torn, hut Jessie's sweet face was revealed on the glossy surface of the metal — the face which had looked Into his one summer day when they rode to lllng ham. and Jessie proposed they should "have their tintypes taken." Jessie was in her sixteenth year when the picture was taken, hut tho long riding-habit and the queenly pose of her head against the plain back ground added dignity to the nascent charms of face and figure. John would sit for hours during the long evenings and gaze at this portrait. It was the one visible connecting link between the past anil -the present, the ocular inspiration for his future. Again and ngaln he attempted to pic ture the Jessie Carden of the pres ent. With his eyes fixed on the por trait. and his mini! centered on its original, he struggled to span the void of miles and years which parted them, and to hold communion with her. At times he Imagined the message was received, anil tiiat a loving answer came, bidding him to have faith anil to persevere. Surely such corresj»on dence was not in violation of bin promise to Peter Burt! Then he would turn to his books, and with a light iieart toil far Into the night. In Hus room he mastered the secrets of finance and of commerce. With him self as tutor, he took a postgraduate course in business. No detail was tix) slight, no problem too Intricate, to escape his attention. The world was the chessboard or his future opera tions. and he explored its past and studied its present with zeal unflag ging and faitii unbounded. But when slumber fell upon him, and his soul wandered into unknown regions, he dreamed —dreamed not of millions nor i»r triumphs over master minds. He dreamed of Jessie Car den. (To be continued.)
