CHAPTER IV. — (Continued-)
the vivacity of the Ancient Mariner.
"Then the inhabitants of the Island
fathered on the beach to receive the
ihipwrecked strangers, and made a
3re of fagots to warm the poor crea-
tures. How nice and kind of them!"
laid Mrs. Griffith in her mellow, sym-
pathetic voice.
"Paul abode here for three months,
;he Roman centurion having refused to
llay the prisoners under his charge to
prevent their escape,"' added the cler-
gyman, restoring the Testament to
his pocket. "Truly, God works in a
mysterious way His wonders to per-
"All this land must have belonged
to the Publius whose father was
healed fever by the Apostle,"
mused Miss Symthe, pointing to the
bhore with her red silk parasol.
"How awfully clever you are to
know all about it!" whispered Lieut.
Curzon, while his glance plainly sup-
plemented: "llow well vou are look-
ing to-day!"
The young lady smiled with a cer-
tain calm complacency. Her sailor
hat was bound with a blue ribbon,
which imparted a youthful charm to
her delicate features, while her slender
figure was clad in a white dress with an
a/.ure belt, and wide, mariner s collar,
embroidered with anchors. She was
subtly aware that the masculine gaze
rested on her with satisfaction, and
even the elderly clergyman found her
allusion to Publius the more upt that
she was fuir.
"As for the model of the ships of an-
tiquity, we find it on the coins of Coin-
modus, Adrian, and Lucius Verua,"
said (apt Fillingham, still contem-
plating the bay.
He turned suddenly to Arthur Cur-
zon, with a twinkle of sly humor in
his eye.
"Docs your friend, Jacob Dealtry,
happen to possess any good Roman
"Don't know, I am sure; but I should
say not," retorted Lieut. Curzon,
Capt Blake, who was attired in a
uniform of vivid scarlet, and a short
jacket which imparted an additional
ruddy glow to his saudy complexion,
bushy red mustache, and bulbous
nose, tilted his cap over his keen blue
"1 have no more doubt of Jacob
Dealtry's dealing in Roman coins than
that he has a pretty daughter," he
said, in a bantering tone.
The company laughed. Arthur Cur-
zon again started, and colored with
"You are mistaken," lie retorted
lightly. "Jacob Dealtry has no daugh-
ter. as far as 1 am aware."
lie was vexed, even startled, by the
swiftness of the emotion which swept
over him at the mention of the young
girl in the garden. Surely the senti-
ment was merely a tingling irritation
of quick blood, the innate hostility in
rivalry of the sailor to the soldier.
at Capt. Blake, mingled with wrath at
himself for so readily betraying his
own annoyance. \\ hat a fool he had
been to ever mention the name of the
old man!
"So there are no pretty daughters in
the house of Dealtry," said Capt
Hlake, mockingly. "More s the pity!
I am a great admirer of the fair sex,
and yet my enemies declare that I am
not a marrying man."
Here the soldier sighed and glanced
"John, dear, put on your hat, or you
will catch your death of cold," inter-
posed Mrs. Fillingham with her usual
decision of manner.
The lady was in the best of spirits.
Sho wore a hat of juvenile aspect and
a metal belt with a whole arsenal of
miniature daggers and pistols of silver
The Ancient Mariner slowly replaced
his hat, with an expression of offended
dignity. "1 was about to remark, if
you will allow mo to finish, Mary "
"Yes, yes," rejoined his helpmate,
with her hurried lisp, while her pale
blue eyes wandered abstractedly to-
The clergyman nodded his head j wnnj tl,e iuncheon cloth spread on the
jcntly. Possibly he was amused ty | ground at BOme paces distant. "Mrs.
Unvina* Griffith is waiting for us. Let me find
a nice sheltered corner for you, dear,
and some sherry- You must keep up
your strength, you know."
"Promise to preach us a sermon on
St Paul at Malta," said Mrs. Griffith
to the clergyman.
The hostess felt that transition from
sacred to mundane matters might be
too abrupt without such a suggestion.
"Very good," he replied, smiling.
"I invite you all to my parish in Sur-
rey next summer to hear me preach
about St. Paul at Malta. I faucy the
ordeal will prove a sufficient punish-
ment for all small peccadilloes.
Promise to lunch with me at the Vicar-
age afterward."
In the general assent Captain lllakc
evinced marked fervor. Much desul-
tory talk and laughter ensued, amid
the popping of corks and the discus-
sion of cold fowl and ham, sandwiches
and salad.
The Ancient Mariner, with a Scotch
plaid spread over his rheumatic knees. I
a plate of jellied beef before him, and
a wine bottle at his elbow, had recov-
ered his amiability.
"llet married in the heyday of |
youth," he admonished. "Every man •
needs a wife to take care of him."
The clergyman, who was a widower,
sighed, and helped himself freely to
mustard. Miss Ethel Symthe sat on a
camp-stool, with Arthur Curzon on
her right hand, and Captain Hlake on
the left.
□ The latter, investigating the depths
of a jar of potted tongue, remarked,
"The worst of it is, Malta is such a
beastly hole to be stationed in. There's
nothing whatever to do."
"I find it very jolly," said Arthur
Curzon. Thereupon he sang, in a fine
baritone voice, the ballad of Destiny.
The Ancient Mariner listened with a
sudden shadow of gravity on his face.
"Strange! His father. Admiral Jack,
had just such a voice," he soliloquized.
"Do you like that song?" demanded
Capt Hlake, sotto voce, of Miss
Symthe, as he traced lines on the
ground with the pointed end of the
young lady's parasol. "Hellowing is
no name for it"
Then he added the soldier's defiance
of the discipline of the troop-ship, in
a mocking falsetto—
"And all al>out the ship, •
I'm sure 'twould vex a saint!
Everywhere you walk or sit,
They sing out, 'Mind the paint.'"
Miss Symthe declined to laugh at
this sally, and proffered claret-cup to
Arthur Curzon instead.
Mrs. Griflith had said to her friend
when the man-of-war was coming into
port, "I hope you two will like each
other, Ethel. Arthur belongs to really
verj'good people."
Miss Symthe was prepared to like
Lieut Curzon. She had decked her-
self in u nautical toilet before her mir-
short for preparations. What if wo
had a series of tableaux representing
the early inhabitants of Malta receiv-
ing the royal guest?"
"Charming!" exclaimed Mrs. Fil-
"Give him a Cossack supper and
show him our Crimean medals," sug-
gested Capt Hlake, facetiously.
Mrs. Griffith threatened him with
her finger. "I should rcquiro a beau-
tiful girl for the early Phoenician
type," sho continued.
"1 know of one," said Arthur Cur-
zon, impulsively.
"Do you, really? That makes all
the difference. Can you induce her to
pose for us, Arthur?"
"1 will try," was the eager rejoinder.
Mrs. Griffith contemplated her cousin
with interest Miss Symthe darted a
swift glauce at him of surprise and in-
with assumed carelessness.
Lieut Curzon bit his lip. He wished
that he had not again spoken of the in-
habitants of the Watch Tower, and yet
the motive was a generous one. Doloi es
longed to go to a ball. Ilow strange
it would be if the caprice might be ful-
filled in a swift and unexpected fash-
ion! "That is a matter of taste," he
said, warily. "At least slio would
serve as a foil for Anglo-Saxon beauty,"
and his glance rested on MissSymthe's
golden hair and delicate complexion.
"We need dark and rich coloring,"
said Mrs. Griffith. "Can I rely upon
you, Arthur?"
"You may rely upon me," he replied
gravely, suppressing a smile.
"1 need the assistance of all of you,"
concluded the hostess, rising.
Then the remnants of the feast were
paeked in baskets and hampers by the
attendant servants, and a last glance
taken of St. Paul's bay by the pleasure

found him miss symthe'h companion.
Returning homeward. Lieut Curzon
found himself the companion of Mist
Symthe. Mrs. Griffith smiled on the
young people with her most benevo
lent expression.
The young ofiicer, with a sudden ac
cess of high spirits, and full of im
patience to fulfill the mission intrusted
to him, replied mechanically to the re-
marks of his companion. She was ol
a conventional type of correct young
ladyhood. He assured himself, with
weariness, that he had met scores ol
girls just like her. He could define tc
a nicety, if so minded, her opinions on
religion, society, politics, dress, town
and country life. He did not attempt
to analyze this change of mood, only
the softly modulated accents of Mist
Symthe in his ear bored him.
Washington, May 13-The phase of the
Important pending queston between
England and Venezuela, In which the
United States has Intervened to ask
arbitration, is Involved In the demand
of the state department for the resigna-
tion of United States Minister Ilazel-
ton of Venezuela on serious charges
made by Admiral Meade. Minister
Hazelton regards the charges as in-
spired by pique and as an evidence of
this he cites political representations of
a direct and Indirect character by whlclt
he says Admiral Meade sought to Im-
press the Venezuelan government and

States squadron was something more
than a courtesy and Involved political

about to lend the strength of Its navy
to maintain Venezuela against Great
The minister says that this Impression
characterized all the admiral's actions
while the Nnlted Sstates fleet was In
Venezuelan waters. It was so marked
to attract the notice of Venezuelans.
The government officials, who were well
Informed no the pacific character of the
visit, were surprised that the impress!.in
should be given that there was politi-
cal significance In the visit. Mr. Hazel-
ton says this course aroused a decided
feeling of disapproval among the gov-
ernment authorities. They did net, he
•ays, care to be patronized, when, as
they un|erstood the facts, the visit of
the fleet was an incident to Its being
.n southern waters and was not lntend-
?d as an evidence of the position of the
United States on the International ques-
tion involved.
The minister today referred to Ad-
miral Meade's address as something
more than an expression of the usual
official courtesies and declared that it
?onveyed the general Impression that
the United States sailors were there as
an evidence of the political policy of
the United States.
It was stated at the White House
today that the action taken in the case
Df Minister Hazelton would not bo re-
called and that Mr. Hazelton would not
return to Venezuela as minister of the
United States.
It is stated that the intervention of
Mr. Smalley will not avail nythlng In

partment it was said that Admiral
Meade's charges were substantiated by

thing but Intimated that he might pos-
sibly have something to make public
concerning the matter tomorrow.

clusion was reached at Saturday's con-

report of the inpulry held on board the
United States cruiser New York on
April G, but Mr. Choate objected to this
being submitted. The objection was
sustained. This was regarded as a big
advantage to Kershner's lawyers.
The first witness was Lieutenant IT.
P. lluse, who was Judge advocate at
the court of inquiry on board the New
York. He testified to the order of the
admiral and read the newspaper re-
ports of the refusal of Dr. Kertdiner to
sen assistance to the bark and and the
correspondence which the doctor is
accused of making public.
D. Kershner was sworn as a witness
before that court. He could not re-
member the exact language Dr. Kersh-
ner used, but he remembered the sub-
stance. lie looked at the record which
he had written at that time. Lieuten-
ant Lanchelmer asked him if It was
true record of the preceedlngs, but
Mr. Choate jumped to his feet and pro-
tested. Mr. llunsdale insisted that the
record was not a true and correct re-
port of the full proceedings nnd until
the witness had exhausted his recollec-
tions of the facts, he should not be per-
mitted to refresh his memory from his
Lieutenant Lanchelmer got very an-
gry and exclaimed: "This Is my witness
and I object to the defense laying out
the line of the prosecution."
The objection was overruled and
Lieutenant lluse then read several queg
tlons put to Dr. Kershner at the court
of Inquiry and his answers as to how
the correspondence came into posses-
ion of the press. Dr. Kershner denied
liaving any knowledge of the manner
In which the facts leaked out.

recollect any questions which he asked

Topeka, Kan. May 13.—The story that
State Treasurer Atherton had made in-
decente proposals to a young girl dur-
ing the session of the last legislature
turns out to be the work of his ene-
mies. Governor Morrill snid today:
"It Is true that I heard this story
about Mr. Atherton, and It Is also true
that I repeated It to ex-Lieutenant Gov-
ernor Felt. He came Into my office
shortly after I had first heard what
purported to be the details of the case.
I talked with him about as a friend,
whose advice I valued, not for publi-
cation, for I was shocked beyond ex-
pression and felt that something ought
to be done In the premises. This was
ajong in the early part of the session
of the legislature. I set on foot an in-
vestigation of the matter, and very
shortly afterward Lieutenant Gover-
nor Troutman and others reported to
me that there was absolutely no truth
In the charge against Mr. Atherton;
that It bad been set afloat by bis ene-
mies, without even the shadow of a
basis, and that there was no such girl
and no such occurrence. Of course I
dropped It right there as a canard and
have since heard nothing of the story
until it appeared In the Hiawatha

caped probably ten thousand bullets,
was killed by the shock of hearing of a

that man's bosom for such a cause, cer-
tainly was not of a cold-blooded savage.
The child was but 2-yeras-o.d and the
favorite child of his favorite daughter.
In the calm of his old days he would
wander around to the tepee of his dau-
ghter, take the child on his knee nnd
play with her for hours. The child was
a little girl—a nice ,bright-faced little
papoose—and the old man talked not to

people, or no braver warrior ever fol-
lowed their fortunes In the Held.
Whirlwind descended from n royal
stock. His parental ancestors for gen-
erations before him. had been chiefs in
the tribes, While his mother's family
had long and brilliant pedigrees His
mother's brother was the famous Mack-
kettle, be who fell by the sword of the
gallant Custer at Washita in that mem-
orable battle that was fought in the
middle of the winter twenty-seven
years ago. Whirlwind, however, need-
ed no pedigrees to give him prominence.
He carved out fame by his own deeds
of daring and personal bravery; for It
Is conceded that with the single excep-
tion of Quanah Parker that not so brave
an Indian lived in his time. And he had
some of the greatest qualities of gener-
alship. Napolean In his system of war-
fare, had two characteristics; first he
was noted for his rapid movements;
second, for cuttifig the enemy's ranks.
Whirlwind had the same characteris-
tics In his military life. In fact his
name Is derived from the former char-
acteristic. He struck terror here one
day, fifty miles away the next, and so
6n till the people said "he travels like
a whirlwind." That Is how he got the
name he bofe until his death, although
It was not his right name.
Whirlwind was not a blood thirsty
man. Colonel Willi,im Matth.-wson of
Wichita know him for over forty years.
He says that he was as true ns steel to
a friend, white or red. When Mr. Mat-
thewson wanted once to trade with the

Washington. May 13.—An ngreement
las been effected between the United
States nnd Great Britain in which Oc-
{ober Is set as the time for the assembl-
ing at Washington of a commission to
legotlate a treaty as to claims of seal-
irs 011 account of Bering sea seizures.
Delegates will come from Canada to
meet the authorities here.
The reports coming from Victoria
lhat the British government bad vacat-
ed the sealing regulations because of
the non-payment by the United StateB
of the $425,000 claimed for seizures, Is
said to be due to misapprehension. In
view of the fact that the commission
will meet in October to consider these
seizures, there would be, it is stated,
no present ground of complaint for non-
payment. However, it is learned that
the report from Victoria, B. C., is bas-
d on a misunderstanding of the word
"senllng," which does not apply to the
seal animals but to the locks or seals
by which implements used In sealing
are locked up during the closed season.
From authorltlve sources the sub-
stantial features of tne text of the
new British regulations have been se-
cured. Last year a rule was made that
sealers could go to Japan or other pro-
ximate territory where a British con-
sul or other officer would seal up the
ammunition, guns, etc., used in sealing.
Vessels having arms thus sealed up
could remain In Bering sea during the
closed season.
They were not subject o search or
seizure, us the seal on their arms was
a guarantee that they were not cap-
turing fur-bearing animals. But the
British admiralty lias found that this
rule is Impracticable. In one case a
ship master concealed arms and used
them In closed season, although he had
another set of arms sealed up as
gurantee against Inspection. In anther
■use, apparatus used for life saving
was seized under the impression that It
vas for killing seals. Owing to these
objections the British authorities have
determined to abolish this one rule but
not all of them and notice to that effect
has been given The effect has been to
nake It unnecessary for vessels to go
lo Japan or elsewhere and have their
arms sealed up during the closed sea-
ion. It Is said, however, that this will
not permit British ships to poach dur-
ing the closed season. The law against
this is In the British statute books In
the same words as adopted by the
Paris court of arbitration. The aboli-
tion of the rule will not, It Is said, per-
Imt the violation of the law against
the use of arms, etc., in the closed sea-
Hon. British naval vessels will patrol
tho sea as usual, and the list of these
patrol ships is daily expected.
State Hciintor Morrlssey of Mlaaoarl tln>
Victim of a Frencled Woman.
St. Louis, May 13.—State Senator
Peter R. Morrlssey was shot and In-
stantly killed at 3:30 this morning by
Maud Lewis, his mistress. The tragedy
was enacted In her room on the second
floor at No. 271!) Washington street.
Morrlssey went to her house at a very
late hour and had retired when the
crime was committed. The woman
has been mentally unbalanced for some
time according to the statements of her
neighbors. She is supposed to have
been insane at the time.
The first Information the neighbors
had of the tragedy was from the wo-
man's screams. They ran In and
found her In a frenzy of grief and ter-
ror bowing over the body and calling
on "Pete" to come back. The first wlt-
n< aa «ho arrived on the seene could
gain no information from her as to the
precise manner in which the murder
was accomplished, but everything In-
dicate,I that Morrlssey was asleep
when he met his death. Two shots
were fired, one entering the mouth nnd
the other penetrating the brain through
the left eye. Death was instaneous.
Ae soon IS the neighbors ascertained
that Maud Lewis was the principal in
the tragedy they sent word to Four
courts and Detectives Jim Smith and
J,.}]n Howard ueidispatch, d to th-
place. They were unable to get a co-
herent statement from the woman,
whose ravings became more violent
and desperate every minute. She was
sent to the city hospital In a patrol
wagon and an undertaker took charge
of the body. At the time of his death
the deceased was a member of the Mis-
souri state senate.
Jefferson City, Mo., May 13.—News
of the killing of Senator Morrlssey cre-
ated somewhat of a sensation here to-
day. His death greatly complicate the
situation ill the Senate There are now
eighteen Democratic senators—Just
enough to pass a bill-but Senator Bal-
lard Is confined to bed. The Democrats
are left with but seventeen, one short
