Sena or I.a Follette began a two days' peecli, arguing for a lower tariff. Sen dors Nelson and Gore spoke along the ante line and Senator Klkins pleaded or a higher tariff on coal and oil. Senators Aldrich and Stone engaged a sharp exchange of words Thurs lav morning in a discussion growing nit of Senato^ Aldrich's charge that he German government was interfer ng in tariff legislation. Mr. Stone iaid the German government resented hat charge, and Mr. Aldrich attempt •d to show that his statement was di -eeted nenirtst the government. Sena or I .a l-'ollelte continued his speech igainst high tariff rates in the pend ing hill. At -"i::i0 p. m. the Senate took recess till o'clock, when discussion if the bill °."-is continued until 10: u. -\fter trying 'or ihive quarters of an hour to olita quorum and not meet nig with success the House adjourned nilil Monday. The point of no quorum ivas made by \(r. Macon (Arkansas), who demanded the presence of a con stitutional majority for the consider "ition of the bill amending the laws of Porto Rico.

Through forenoon, afternoon and ivening sessions the Senate Friday labored on the cotton schedule. Mr. f^a Follette completed his long speech attacking the changes in the Dingley rates which were recommended by the Senate Finance Committer! and replied to Senator Penrose's charge that he vas shamming sickness as an excuse for his absence from the night session, lie said he was not sick, hut was very tired ami was resting in order to be in shape to continue his speech in the Senate. At the night session Chair man Aldrich replied to Mr. La Fol lette's assault upon the work of the Finance Committee and made a gen eral defense of amendments, which he asserted were necessary to carry out fhe intent of (lie framefs of the Ding 'ey law. The House was not in session. After devoting the larger portion of Saturday to listening to a discussion of the cotton cloth schedule, the Sen ate entered upon a period of voting late in the afternoon and rapidly dis posed of the entire subject of changing from ad valorem to specific duties for the purpose of preventing tinder-valua tions. On all the voles taken the finance committee was sustained by a majority of ten or eleven. Three votes were necessary to accomplish this re sult, and others would have been nec essary but. for Senator Bacon, who, seeing (he futility of opposing the ponmiiftf?'?, thG in'QUjjing of the votes after the first two ballots had been taken. This suggestion was unanimously agreed to. with the re sult. that so much was accomplished that a night session was not held. Senator Dolliver occupied much of the time of the session with a speech in which lie indulged in much caustic criticism of the methods of the finance committee. The House was not in session. The Senate chamber Monday was the* scene of a sharp conflict between Senator Aldrich and Senator Bever idge over the tariff bill. Both Sena tors were frequently on their feet and were the chief speakers of the day The first subject, of dispute was Al* drich's amendment for a duty of 3 cents a square yard and 20 per cent ad valorem on window hollands. This amendment was finally adopted by the usual majority, as were all the other comipittee amendments to the cotton schedule. A motion to remove rubber goods from the cotton schedule prevail ed and overshoes and other rubber articles in which cotton is a factor will get a lower rate of duty. The Senate hosiery rates, which are a re enactment of the Dingley rates, were adopted. The House of Representa tives passed the Porto Rican bill with out amendment. The bill provides that whenever the Legislature shall fail to make the necessary appropriations for the ensuing fiscal year, those for the current year shall be considered as in force and effect. It also provides that hereafter all reports of an official char acter shall be made direct to an execu tive of the government -of the United States to be designated by the Presi dent, and such department is author ized to take junrisdiction of all mat ters pertaining to the island posses sion.

"I know," she said, "what you and my father are trying to do without a shadow of justification. You are going to bang Captain Smith as a spy. if you think to win my favor by such an action, you are pailly mistaken." "What is he you?" asked Haywood Jealously. "He is my affianced husband, or was Until "I hoard him myself renounce all pre tensions to your hand." "That is because he thinks I betrayed him. One word from you would have told him the truth. You kept silent. Was that the act of a gentleman?" "I match my acts against yours any time." "Noble retort!" she replied scornfully, drawing herself up. "Noble or not," said Haywood, "I don't care to bandy words with a—traitress." "If I were a man," said the girl hotly, "you would nerer have dared to say that." "I you were a man," said Haywood with equal heat, "you would have been dead by this time." Ellen turned from him without another word and walked up to the house. She could not trust herself to speak fur '.her with him or anyone. CHAPTER XIII. The girl had many things to do, but Jn spite of all her resolution she was utterly unable to accomplish tliem then. Jlcr old black mammy was in Lime to ratoh her young mistress in her stoilt nrms as Miss Ellen staggered across the threshold, and it was upon that broad old bosom, upon which she had reposed (is a child, that she finally sank to sleep tfter the terrible events of the night. Her father remained on the ship the next day. He refused to see her. He •ent word that, failing tihe guns which be was to receive from tfie Greyhound, he had bought two old field pieces from the Confederate government whioli would fee delivered in a few days, nnd that so Boon as ho could got 1he Ellen armed she would set sail on a cruise. That would probably be during the next week. He soil that the Greyhound would go to Charleston with the Ellon in search of a cargo and that his daughter should be left in Charleston with a distant relative of her mother. This relative would be instructed to look nfter her, a certain fuji would be paid yearly for her mainte nance, and that Belli* done he washed his hands further of her. A hard man and a stern was Major Jones. He was so full of rage at: the loss of the Greyhound's cargo and the peril to which tlie Ellen had been subject ed, due, as he persisted in believing, to his daughter's love for the young Federal officer, whom he detested, more than ever, that he was absolutely blind to the bitter injustice of his course. He had sent word to the military commander of the district 'of the attempt to cut out the privateer, end had described the status of the Fed eral officer whom he held prisoner. Ellen learned by inquiry that a court had been convened to try Captain Smith that afternoon. The court was composed of her father, Haywood, one of the in fantry captains, and two other officers from the privateer. There was no doubt that they would find hiin guilty, and in that case he would be hanged. There was no way for her to see the prisoner. He was kept in the strong room with which plantation houses in that Mction were always provided. The windows of the room were barred and the room it«elf was carefully guarded by a soldier. The guards were changed every two hours. Ellen racked her brains for an opportu nity to get to the prisaner. She could think of no way at first. Later in the afternoon she noticed that the sentry who approached to relieve the one irlMMK tour of duty was just ended «U one of her father's tenants, a man who had always professed deep attach ment to her. Often during hsr childhood she had spent long periods on the planta tion with her uncle. This man and she were especially friendly. She thought she might accomplish her end through him. Fortunately, or unfortunately, as it turn ed out, just as she had conceived a prac ticable plan to approach the sentry a squad of soldiers entered, and Smith was summoned before tihe court, which was to hold its session on the Elle&. The sentry on duty before the strong room was left where he had been sta tioned. All that Ellen now wished was to get access to the room. She turned from the gallery whence she had seen the little group di-|t*rt with her lover, passed through her rooms, after some rapid preparation, went out into the hall, descended the stairs, and ran down the long corridor, at the end of which was the door of the strong room. "Jim," she said to the man. "Lord.v, Miss Ellen!" exclaimed the •itn, who had heard nothing of her ar rital. "yo" look like a ghost! What's Ue matter with yo'?" "Jim," she begau, "that offictr tfcsre "Yes, Miss Ellen."

"They're trying him as a spy.** "Yes, I reckon they air," assented .Tim twvely. "lie is no spy." "They're sartin to find him guilty, how eomever," answered the man seriously. "It may be," answered the girl, "for they are not just men." "Your paw is on that air cote a-tryin' him. Miss Ellen." "I have no father, Jim. My father thinks I nui a traiioi «aud that I have betrayed him to this officer. I swear on my honor "I believe yo'. Miss Ellen. I've knowed yo' sence you. was a chile. I reekoa yen woaldnt tell no lie. If there's fcaythi&rj Ellen's lips teched that old paw of mine." I iu* do to help 0, count oa •a." a. uited the hairy member, an* jwt AU rights "'There's nothing you can do," said the girl quickly. She di»i_not hesitate to deceive the man in view of her lover's peril. She would shrink from nothing to save hun. "I wouldn't have you false to your duty as a soldier by asking you to /et him out. I only ask you to let me in. I want to see him a lit'tle while, aud then I will come out." "Oh, Miss Ellen, I couldn't do that! I'd love to oblecge yo' "Well, let me in the room now while hi' isn tiere. I want to write to liiin. I'll -o uk and get a paper." "There's paper in yere,",said the man "th« prisoner axed fer some an' lie got some this mornin', so I was tole. He's been doin' a powerful lot of writ in' this mornin'." The soldier unlocked the door and looked in. "I didn't git. no orders not to let nolxtdy go in here. They tub' ma to watch an' see that the man ilida't git out. I'll let yo' in, but you'll hev to be out afore he gits back." "All right," said Ellen gratefully, step ping within the room. There was nothing in the room but a cot. a table ajid a chair. Ou tbe table were writing materials. "I'll shet the door and lock it." said Jim, "an" when I sec 'em com in' I'll call for yo'." There wafc a window in live corridor and he could see the wharf frotu it. "Miss Ellen. 1 wouldn't do this fer anyone but yo'," he continued "p'raps I oughtn't do it fer yo'." "I'll never forget: you," said the girl. When the door was closed she stepped lo the table. There were three sealed letters upon it. One was directed to Com modore Paulding, another to a lawyer in New York, who had charge of Smith's small earnings, and the third envelope bore her own name. She instantly tore it open. She read "Ellen, I am to be tried before a packed court, determined on my death, this after noon. They will hnng me, 1 am certain. 1 don't suppose, when you betrayed me. that you anticipated this. 1 have no re proaches for you. I suppose 1 wasn't, worth keeping fuiih with. You have de stroyed my 'faith in you you have done more, you have destroyed my faith in woman. I don't care what they do to me now. 1 hate myself for if, yet if it is any satisfaction to you to know. I love you in spite of everything. 1 love yon and shall love you until 1 am dead. IJou'i re proach yourself. 1 forgive \cu." That was all. Smith was not a man to indulge in heroics, but it was enough. The ^'irl kissed the paper auil thrust it into Iter bosom. "They shall not kill him!" she mur mured. "If m.v plan doesn't serve, I'll ride to General Mel!, the commander of the district, ami tell him the truth, lie shall stop it. It. would be murder." She realized that she had no time to lose. Proceedings of courls like that u]*ui Smith were always short and summary. Seizing a pen, she wrote: "1 am not guilty of the charge you place against me. I did not betray yon. Captain Haywood met me in the village, and my refusal to explain my presence there exciled his attention, lie saw the Greyhound and noticed how light she was in the water. He left me nnd galloped to the Ellen to save her. I got: a horse and did my best to follow. When the horse gave out .1 ran on foot, but arrived too late. They shall not hang you! Think of me when yott lie down. You will need all joar strength. Go to sleep early. If the worst comes, I shall appeal person ally to the general commanding the dis trict. Believe that I love you. My fath er thinks I have betrayed him. II* has disowned me. I am yours more than ever and will go to you when you claim me." Miss Ellen had prepared for her visit. After finishing her letter she ran fo the window and examined it. The bars were set in mortar, but the mortar was old. A man, especially one weakened by a wound like that of Smith, could scarcely drag them from their fastenings, but wfth the aid of an implement it would be an easy matter. She had brought that im plement with her. Under her clothing, tisd around her waist, she had securej a short iron bar which she had stolen from the gun room, which, together with a loaded revolver, she slipped beneath the blanket that covered his cot. She might have been more explicit in her directions, but she trusted that his mother wit would tell him what to do, and if the letter fell into some other hands than bis, he still might find the weapons. As soon as he lay down on the cot he would know. She kissed ths pillow on which his head had rested, and then, with a long look around the room, she tapped on the door. "I was gittin' moughty anxious like. Miss Ellen," said Jim, opening the door. "Here is a letter," said Ellen. "I want you to read it so that you may know there is nothing wrong about it." "Oh, Miss, I don't want to read yo' letter!" "But you must." said the girl, rapidly reading the brief sentences to him. "There," she said, "I'll trust you still further. Instead of leaving it on the table, I want you to give it to him. Don't forget it. If they have condemned him to death, a letter like this wijl help him." "•'Pears like a letter like that'n would make most men willin' to die." said Jim. "Jim, I'll never forget you!" said Ellen gratefully, watching the soldier slip the letter in his tunic. "I wisht I could do more, Miss, than jest givin' a letter." Ellen was about to say "That's enough,"' but cheeked herself in time. "That's a great deal," she said, "and I appreciate it." She took his hard, rough hand in both her own, and before he knew what she was about raised it to her lips. "Good-by!" she murmured, and was gone. "Well," said Jim, looking at his rough, grimy, soiled hand, "to think that Miss her Hps had pressed it he It himself. In a short rime the prisoner tru brought forth. The court-martial, in spit* of his impassioned defense, had declared him guilty by a vote of four to one. It had appointed daybreak on the following morning for his execution. He had a formal and indignant protest agaiast the injustice of the sentence and had re peated bis request for counsel, for a da lay in the eexcution until he could com niHtiicafe with Commodore Paulding, at least untii he could plead his case be fore the district commander. Whea these pleas had been denied him he had refused to say another word. This was the ead of all his dreams and hopes, hut he was de termined that no one should s«e hia blanch or quiver. He walked across the wharf and up tht hill with as erect a bearing and as steady a step as if he were peeing the weathw side of a quarter deck. Through the latticed window Ellen watched hiiA with love and pride. She would ha»e discov ered herself to him, but she thought best not to do so, as it might attract at tention to her and so interfere with her plan. So soon as the escort had delivered him to the sentry he was ngain locked in the strong loom. Wheu the soldiers had de parted old Jim unlocked the door and entered the room. The prisoner was off his guard, thinking himself private. He stood leaning against the casing looking out in the window. He could see a stretch of the blue water of the inlet. There lay tae Ellen where he had failed. Be yond her, swinging at her anchor, was the tile.', hound, upon which he had set forth with such hopes of success, where he had been so happy. Well, it was all over now. They would hang him in the morn ing. He had protested against it because it. was his duty and because he would fain have lived to serve his country. But his heart, was di-ad within his breast. Ellen had killed hope, trust, everything! "Stranger," whispered Jim softly, "I hev sojuelhiii' fer yo'." "For me' asked Smith. "A letter," said the soldier, fumbling rxt' the breast of his coat, "writ by th« young missy.'' "(Jive it lo me!" cried the prisoner. lie tore it open feverishly. He glanced at the contents, and a look of joy came over his countenance. "Thank God. thank GoJ'." he murmur ed. "ihat she was true!'' "If you'd knowed her as long as I hev." said Jim severely, "you'd a-knowed there wasn't better woman under heav en than little missy." "I believe you. I wronged her. Could you bring her here for a minute?" "it would be as much as mv life's wiiih." said Jim, slinking his b"ad sadly. "I done more than I'd ought to anyway, but I was sorry for the sirf. I let, her in "Was she in here?" interrupted Smith. "Yes, while yo' was bein' tried. She set in that, cheer an' writ the letter at the table." "My friend." said Smith. "I hav» no money. 1 wouldn't insult you by offering you any if I had. but 1 wish to give you m.v wa: :h. I want yi.u to take it from me as mark of my gratitude. Xo, don't refus*'. Time is of no value to me now. 1 die in the morning. K?ep it, and thank you again and agiin." "Thankee. Mr," said the old man, tak ing the watch, a handsome piece of jetv !r.v. "I don't need "I'.u 1 want you to have this. T. don't know where it could he more worthily be stowed. You did it for her. Good-by." He deftly ushered the soldier to the door, lie wanted io be alone. The refer ence to the cot. was plain bj him. The girl he loved was not l'u'se. She had been in thai room. The iceya to freedom lay ihere. He went io t.lie table where she had leaned her "trm and kissed the place where she had written the letter. Then and not n^.til then did he go to the cot. A load*" revolver! He was armed for defense.
