/CHAPTE^XVIII.—(Continued.) It struck u* as a little odd that she should have up in this aimless manner; but ^fleeting that perhaps after all it was due to nothing more than a desire to gratify feminine curi osity by spying what I was about I dismissed the mat'up/ \ After allowing a ^tle time to elapse I descended to the shop and began carelessly running my eyes over the miscellaneous collecnon of articles therein. The fence followed me about, now recommending this thing and now that. At last I saw what looked to be a ball of rope lying in a corner and covered with dust. “What is that'.’” I inquired, touching it with the point of my sword. The man stooped without a word, aud picking it up, dusted it carefully, then he ‘unrolled a ladder of >iilken cord, about 12 or 15 feet in length. “This, captain.” he said, swinging it backward and forward, “belonged not so long ago to M. le Bellievre, though you may not believe me.” “I have no doubt yon are speaking the truth, but it seems rather weak. “On the contrary, monsieur, will you test it and see?” j We managed to do this by means of two hooks that were slung from the beam above us, in a manner to satisfy me that the ladder was sufficient to bear double my weight; and then, a3 if content with this, 1 flung it aside. “Will not monsieur take it?” asked the man; “it is eheap.” “It is good enough,” I answered, If I had a business on hand; but at pres ent I am waiting.” “!f monsieur has leisure I might be able to give him- a. hint that would be worth something in crowns.” “I am lazy when in luck, compere. No. 1 will not take the ladder.” “K may come in useful, though, and will occupy bitt a small space in mon sieur'* rooms;^ and seeing that ap pend to waver; “shall I take it up? Jjwill let k go for 10 crowns.” Y “Five egowns or nothiug,” I said ^"firmly. “But it Is of the finest “I do not want to buy. You can take my mice or leave it.” “Very well, then, monsieur, thanks, and I will take it up myself.” * “You need not trouble; 1 am going up, and will take it with me.” With these words 1 took the ladder folded in long loops in my hands and went back to the turret. There I spent a good hour or so in re-examining it. and splicing one or two parts that • seemed a trifle weak, at the same time keeping a wary eye on who pass M^and repassed the street, without, discovering ;;i:> tne woman i )d 1 managed .-^de mure J “ ^ *- *af __ ^inat my fasten^? iv. su. h a me could efb an < :i rby bursting the lock.

It was a narrow bus iness, and it was well I had tried the strength of the cord again. I looked I out from the window et/itlously to see if the noise had attracted any atten tion, and found, to my satisfaction, that it had not. After allowing a little time to elapse, so as to be on the safe side, I attempted ‘t« throw the looped end I had made to the ladder, so that It might fall over the parapet, between embrasures, but dis covered, after half a dozrn casts, that this was not feasible from where I stood.

Before going any fur ther, however. I glanced around me to ! see how ihe land iay and was delighted | to find that 1 could not be observed 1 from the opposite side of the street, as the portion of the house I was on was concfaled from view by the gabled roof, that arose about ten fee!/from me, leav ing me in a sort of long balcony. Now that I think of it. this roof must have been an after thought on the part of the builders, then I was but too thank ful to find that it existed, and had no time for reflections. By turning my head l could see. too. that the high wall that shut in the mouth of the passage, was evidently raised as a barrier be tween the street and the fosse which took a bend and ran immediately below the wall. After lying perfectly still ior a little. 1 slowly pushed myself forward until at last I was beneath the skylight, and then raising myself cautiously peep ed in. I saw a room of moderate s:ze, and well, but plainly furnished. In the center was an oblong table covered with a dark cloth and round about it were set a number of chairs. The sky light alone admitted light, and from this to the floor of the room was a mat ter of twelve feet or so. The chamber was empty, and I had more than half a mind to risk the descent, when the door was opened and Babetto stepped in. I shrank back as low as possible, and ob served that she was making arrange ments for some one. for she placed i couple of decanters with glasses on the table, arranged the chairs, and then af ter taking a look round went out once more. 1 made up my mind to wait, and settling myself under the skylight, be gan to exercise my patience. After an hour or so had passed, I heard the door open again, and then the sound of voices. Presently, some one called out. “We had better shut th-> skylight.” and then another voice, this time Lafin’s, said. No. it is no use. and w e will want light to see.” CHIC moi ■ l rau?eo myseu anu lean ed against tlm edge of the opening, ^yes and ears intent. There were three, men in the room—Latin, De Oonierojl and another whom I did not know, but whim l judged to he an ItaLar from his manner of pronoun#**: 'our lan guage. They were Jffl three seated round the table, pouulng over a number of documents an<yronversieg ir. tow ton-s. After a tidfr it appeared to me that Latin was yirging something on De Gomeron. andae free lance, who was short of ter.per. brought his clenched hand on the table in a manner to make the glee's ring whilst he said with an v;Tl» not—I have risked too much. r, _ re told you before that I did not come into this for the good of my health. Myvpriz* is my own. it has nothing to do W'th your affair, of which I am sick.” The other man then cut in: “I do not sce, M. de Latin, why w.e should drag this matter into our dis cussion. If M. de Gomeron wants a wife —well- many -a fair dame has had a rougher wooing than the lady you speak of. Rut I—I have cause for com plaint. I come here expecting to meet the marshal—and I meet you and mon sieur here. I mean no offense, but T must tell you plainly, my master’s in structions are that I should hear M. dp Riron’s promises and take his demand fro mhis own lips. ••And what about Epernon, Bouillon and Tr«moullle, count?” asked de Gomeron. Th dark eyes ot' the stranger flashed on him for a moment. •■My mas.or. the duke of Savoy, knows their views.” "Personally?” The Italian waved his hand with a laugh. "il nth men. I have given you my terms—it i- for you to choose. As for my part 1 would say that my master dropped this business and trusted the day to his sword.” “That i« not wont to be M. De Savoy’s way," sneered Leftn, ami the Italian rose. "Very w II. m< s=ieurs. 1 will then con sid. r the i.~-ue as closed." "It maturs not a rush to me.” exclaimed De Gomeron; but Lat’n, who was moodily picking at his moustache, spoki again, and the tones of his voice were full of chagrin. "As you wish. I undertake that the marshal stes you." "Where and when? My time is pre cious.” "Ma'*dt tto! This U not a place to come at that hour." It is safe, and it would be safer still If you stayed lure till then. The spies of the m.ts;*-r *• rural—curse him—are every where. ar t M. IV Uomeron will guarantee you protection here." “1 am «k ply grateful.” The count bow ed slightly, a faint tone of irony in las voice. “Then you agree?" "Yes.” "This being so, perhaps you had better go over these notes, that you may be in a position to exactly understand what we can do; our terms, of Course, are as be for . but w<. will require money, and that at once.” -Hut large advances have already been made.” objected the Italian. "They are gone.” said Latin. "How? Nothing has been done and both Velasco and Savoy are unwilling to throw more motn y into the business unless some action is taken. How has the money gone?" "It is gone, and there is an end of it,” exclaim id Latin sullenly. "As for the ac tion you wish taken, you have asked to see the marshal and he will inform you." "Wry well! Until then, monsieur, we will not discuss this point further." The voices dropped again after this, and they began to pore over the papers and a map that the free lance had spread before hiui. making an occasional remark, which I did not follow. But 1 heard enough to be convinced that the plot of Anet was still in full life. It was all-important for me new to communicate what 1 knew at once to the Master General. With a little ordinary care, the conspirators could be trapped to a man, and if by one stroke I could effect this, as well as free madame— anything was possible. Without further hesitation 1 therefore crept slowly back, and descended to my chamber as softly- as a cat. Leaving the ladder where it was. for I could not undo the knot. I drew on my boots and went to the turret to recon nolter before venturing out into the street. Imagine my chagrin and disappointment to see that three men were at the gate of the Toison d'Or, evidently on the watch, and in one of them 1 made out Ka vail lac. I pight hate passed the others without dy overy. but it would be impossible > to ^cape the lynx eyes of this villain, who. Bough yourg in years, had a U the of age. and who later on was to false him self to an <fninottce »o bad that I know not whom to place beside him, except, per haps, those who were his aiders and abet tor*. I did not fear to run the gauntlet— that was an easy matter; but merely do ing so ~ould make my birds take to wing, and I found myself compelled once more to hold patience by the tall until the coast was clear. (To he continued to-morrow.) --o—— SILVER FACTS FOR LAWYERS. Cincinnati Enquirer. Lawyers should always be prepared to make ready replies concerning the laws of the land which most nearly affect the business community. The opponents of free silver coinage are the most densely ignorant people of the whole country on the subject of the money system of the United States. Our great bankers, heads of corporations and syndicates, officers and members of commercial bodies, and so-called sound-money politicians are filled with grossly erroneous impressions con cerning the laws of the United States affecting our money system. The statutes of the United States are print ed from year to year in a book, and every lawyer has a copy of it on his shelves. For the information of those lawyers who have not taken the trouble to look at these laws, and there are a great many such lawyers high up in the profession, we will state the follow ing facts: 1. No bond of the United States is by law payable in gold coin, but on the contrary, every bond of the United States is distinctly made payable in any coin of the United States either gold or silver, of the standard value which prevailed on the 14th of July, 1S70. This fact is stated on the back of every bond of the United States in existence. 2. Until 18*19 every bond of the Uni ted States was payable in gold or silver coin or legal tender Treasury notes at the pleasure of the government. They w«=re expressly made payable in the several acts of Congress which author ized their issue. 3. No Treasury note of the United States is now or ever has been payable in gold coin. All such notes wertjjmade payable at the time of their whatever were “dollars” nndr,; Vir law. The resumption act of l^'.^Tnich fixed the time when their redemption should begin, made them payable in coin of rither gold or silver from the first of January. 1879. 1. savor dollars are nv jaw an un limited legal tender in the payment of all debts, public* and private. 5. National bank notes are redeem able in any lawful money of the United States, and of course this includes greenbacks. No national bank is re quired by law to redeem anv of its notes eithfr in silver or in gold coin. 6. There is not in any law of the United States, either directly or by any infer nee however slight, any require ment that the United States shall re deem any bond or note in gold coin in preference to silver coin. Silver coin is a full redemption money, and may be lawfully used in payment of any ob ligation by the United States. 7. No taxes or duties on imports are payable to the United States in goid coin. Internal taxes may he paid in gold, silver or greenbacks. Duties on imports are payable either in gold or silver, or silver certificates, but not in greenbacks. 8. The “coin” notes of the United States issued under the Sherman pur chase law are redeemable in cold or silver coin at the option of the Secre tary of the Treasury, and such is the language of the law under which they ' are authorized. They were issued sole I ly for thp purchase of silver bullion. Any intelligent clerk in any law* of fice can easily turn to the statutes and find the volumes and pages on which the laws are printed which are above j referred to. If a man agrees to deliver gold coin i by a written contract for what he I deems a sufficient consideration h? can j be compelled to keep his prorajJvand I so he can if he agrees to deliver four j leaf clover or the coins of any coun ! try of any particular denomination and date. So he can if he agrees to deliver a white elephant or a Bengal tiger. The specific performance of a contract j is entirely different from the payment of a debt. A failure to perform a spe cific contract subjects a man to a suit for 'damages. The damages are as- ■ seased in money. A failure to deliver a thousand dollars in gold coin would subject a man to damages in the sum of one thousand dollars, and he could pay the damages either in silver coin or in gi-eenbacks. It is not to be sup posed that any court of justice would recognize any commercial usage which would make a gold dollar worth any more than a hundred cents, or a silver dollar worth any more than a hundred cents. » III BOmt? piuau di uuoiucco aiau carefully read all of the foregoing statements, and then ask his lawyer whether or not they are true, and then ask himself under what rule of business and fair dealing any man could be compelled to pay gold coin under an agreement to pay either gold or silver at his own option? And also under what rule the United States gov ernment most pay gold in redemption | of notes and bonds which by law are made payable either in gold or silver at the pleasure of the government. Then, as a matter of common sense, we would like to inquire why the gov ernment should not insist upon being | paid everything in gold if it is expect- , ed to pay all its obligations in gold. What obligation is there on the part of the government to pay gold to in dividuals, in the absence of an agree ment to do so, unless the individuals are also under an obligation to pay the government in gold, in the absence | of any agreement to do so? • There is no provision of law In the ] United States statute book under which i the government can acquire any gold F * Mrs. A.

Books on Cancer c Co., coin, not even a two dollar and a half, piece. Under the resumption act, when the coin in the treasury is dangerous ly low, the Secretary of the Treasury may sell bonds for “coin,” but he can not make thtra payable in gold, nor can he make anybody pay gold for them. When the syndicates contract ed to buy the two hundred and sixty two millions of bonds which Mr: Cleveland caused to be issued during his second term, they paid gold for them. But if the syndicate had ten dered to the Secretary of the Treasury silver dollars in payment for their bond subscriptions, it would have been a full and lawful payment, and they I would have been entitled to the bonds. ! Subscriptions to bonds constitute an I indebtedness in the payment of which ' silver dollars are a full legal tender. I It is true gold was paid for them, be i cause Mr. Carlisle sold the bonds at i an average discount of about fifteen | per cent., and the purchasers were of course willing to pay for them in gold, which was a condition imposed upon ' them without any authority of law.

Steamship and Railroad Com panies Expect to Rush to the North Next Spring. Seattle, Wash., July 21.—B. W. Shaw, formerly a well known insur ance man of this city, has written a letter to a business man in which he states frankly that lie does not expect to be believed. v' “This is a great mining strike,” says Mr. Shaw, “probably the greatest on the American continent or in the world. Gold has been found in great paying quantities except on two creeks, about 200 claims. Some of the pay streaks are nearly all gold. One thous and dollars to the pan is not an un common thing, and as high as 100 ounces have been taken out in a single j pan. It is not unusual to see men 1 coming in with all the dust they can I carry. “You would not believe me when I ' tell you that I went into one cabin and counted five live-gallon oil cans full of gold dust, but it is a fact. It is the result of the work of two men during the winter and the dump u . not much more than half worked out. “There has been about $2,000,000 in dust taken out so far in the district. At a lotv estimate I believe that there will be $50,000,000 taken out during the next year.” There are promises of an additional steamer service between this city and St. Michaels, and also a line of Yukon river steamers. Arrangements are be ing made by a company that is being organized by local and Eastern capi talists. The seeheme is to build a sea going ship and light-draft steamer for the business between St. Michaels and Dawson City. The company is organ ized on a $200,000 r^id in capital basis. [ Fort Townsend. Wash., July 21.— Owing to the rush to the Klondyke gold fields, and the still greater rush which is expected next spring, - the Puget Sound Boat Company has decid ed to put a steamer on the Yukon river to carry passengers and freight from St. Michaels to Circle City, and tho Klondyke Valley steamboatinen here estimate that beginning about the first of next April a large steamer can leave the Sound for Alaska daily with all the passenger and freight accommodations crowded. British North Americans nre sihk ing out a railroad to be built from Telegraph creek to Testin lake. 130 miles, there to connect with the boats via a series of lakes into the gold re gion of the Yukon. A line of steamers will be put in operation from Fort Wrangle up the Stikeen river to Tele graph creek. The railroad is to be a narrow gauge. This route would be 3,000 miles shorter than the present one via the Yukon. Tacoma, Wash., July 21.—Dr. Willis E. Everett, a mine expert, has been offered $15,000 to conduct a small party of explorers into the Klondyke dig gings for New York capitalists. “I have refused the offer, said Dr. Ev erett. “but if the proposal is made to my liking I shall go. 1 sp< it two years making a topographical survey of the Yukon, including what is . »w known as the Klondyke district, for the United States government. I have yet to sec a man who has remained in that country’ for two years and retained his health, or who could live afterward in a civilized, temperate zone commun ity. Although the thermometer drops to more that 70 degrees below zero, and the frigid air freezes your breath into a shower of frosty crystals, the humid, sticky, nasty heat of the sum mer causes more suffering than the frightfully cold winters.” San Francisco, July 21.—Clarence J. Berry has arrived in this city from Alaska. With him was his plucky young bride of a year, who braved the rigors of an Arctic winter on the Klon dyke and helped him to make one of the biggest “piles” of any of the fortun ate miners who helped to populate Daw son. Berry is credited with having brought away from the Yukon $130,000. This tells only part of the story of his great strike, for he left behind him nearlv $50,000 of mdHey he took out of ground. He invested $20,000 of it in a claim and the rest he paid out for la bor. Berry is 27 years old. When he sailed back to the Yukon a year ago last February’ he was a poor young man. He first went there in 1894 from Fresno and returned a year ago last fall with ft little stake. He then married Miss Ethel Bush, a handsome Fresno girl, and with her he returned to Alas ka. F. G. H. Bowker, one of the returned Yukoners, who brings back nearly $40, 000 in gold dust, the result of six months’ work, is authority far the state ment that on the American side of the international boundary placer fields have been found which put even those of the Klondyke Into the shade. Bow ker and his associates were told that just across the Alaskan boundary on the American side the party had found placer fields fabnlously rich in gold. ^Every one of us has taken out thous ands of dollars in dust and nnggets al ready,” said Bowker’s Informant, ‘‘and there seema to be no limit to the gold in sight It is more abundant than on the ■ Klondyke, and easier to work, the gold -- being very near the surface ground. WeW are all rich we are going to stay through next ter."' The Alaskan Commercial Compariy has dosed its books of the Excelsior, which wfll leave for St, Michaels on the 28th inst Scores flocked to the com pany's office again to-day, and enough decided to go that way to make up the 200 which the steamer can carry. A majority go from San Francisco, but a number belong to the interior of the State, which is largely supplying re cruits for the Yukon. This* 200 is a small part of the California party .which is mustering for the advance. A great many will let the season for travel go with the intention of going in the spring. Phoenix, Ariz., July 21.—The report ed discovery of the lost California mine near the Mexican border is creating a great deal of interest here. John James and Henry’ Blake who claim to be the discoverers, tell quite a wonderful story of their hardships cn the southern de sert and the remarkable richness of the mine. They say the great mine lies about fifty miles south of the Sentinel Station on the Southern Pacific. They admit, however, that it lies in an abso lutely waterless region, but claim that the ore la of such richness that it will pay handsomely to haul water. Speci mens of the ore exhibited by them more than bear out this statement. CABTORIA. fii* (jASToniiv. o: li :a Tie fac ti&ii* rtnasoa it !s a etory Trapp e». NEW AO/IR n->E VI £NTS._ JOS.
