"I doped that out tonight," ho stated.

Sho laushed again, oven In the midst

long enough. "We're going to stop you

Ho favored her with a sample of tho
laugh which his political enemies never
heard without a shiver, and he turned
uron her ees which wero freezing In
their Insolent contempt, not of her par

"Quit bluffing." he protested. I

"Nor am II" she hotly retorted, "lou

ho will break ou!"
"I'm waiting," he chuckled "Where a
pretty Bert? Soused?"
Bha Jumped from her seat. She searched
wildly for some retort, but could not
"Don't get sore, Molly," he kindly ad
vised her. "I don't want to lead you up
to any more trouble, but I will If I have
to. You can't marry Bert You're too
smart a woman. Ten years from now
he'll rattle around at our side like a
"That's one thing ou can't dictate'
she furiously told him, standing tall and
straight, with clenched flats. In the moon
light. He again commended his choice as
he looked at her. "I'll be Bert's wife In,
less than a month."
She left him In ponderous contempla
tion of her on tho settee and hurried Into
the house, with a half-formed plan or
going home and sending Dicky Reynolds
or some one In search of Bert, but the
Mayor met her. and had Introduced her
to Lord Bunnchase, and sent her In the
direction of the ballroom on that titled
gentleman's arm, before she quite knew
'what was happening to her.
Lord Bunnchase was a yellow-mus-tucKed
man, with a particularly surly
face, who spraddled stiffly through a two
step with her and made three remarks,
consisting of three separate apologies for
bumping her into other dancers, but in
eptte of the fact that he was the least
distinguished looking of any of the gen
tlemen on the floor, Molly noticed, with a
distinctly uncomfortable feeling, that not
only were the eyes of all the dancers
focused on them, but that the non-dancers
suddenly thronged the doorways and the
balconies and never stopped staring.
With a sinking heart she realized once
more the Impertinent organization meth
ods of Sledge, who had stage-managed
this rhole affair so that the Identity of
Lord Bunnchase should not be known
until eh was on the floor with him, thus
glvini; her Jha acute centre of the stage.
Elcde was bound to give her the time
of her Ufa. confound him'
iUst off the Governor's stuffed leather
library was a small room, with a hard
cljk find six hard chairs, and a hard
looking letter file, and a hard. Ore-proof
tuta let Into the wall, and here, while
Lcrd Bunnchase led Molly Marley
through the paces of a hard two-step.
Governor Waver and Senator Allerton,
and Sledge, and Frank Marley gathered
for a few moments of comfortable cljat,
such ns elderly gentlemen love to in
dulge it white frivolous younger people
duncn the flying hours away. All four
Vjlnj- gentlemen who, by the consent of
me -public, bore the grave responsibility
of the public welfare on their shoulders,
it was not strange that their chat should
turn to public affairs.
"I am glad to be identified with the en
terprise," avowed State Senator Allerton,
who was a suave clean-faced gentleman,
wlt'n a good forehead and a quite nego
tiable tongue. "At the same time, as
far as I am privately concerned, I can
only regatd It as a temporary Invest
"Why temporary?" demanded Frank
Marley, who was feeling particularly ca
pable this evening.

"Tho people are ungrateful," mourned
Governor Wav'er, who had enriched him
self through furnishing electric light, at
hla own price, to n public which had
"known nothing better than gns "The
nintnent they see a profit on their luxu
ries they want part of It. An undivided
surplus, such ns tho street car company
hni li.nl, ii a constant menace "
"That was a sinking fund for exten
sions nnd Improvements." Mnrlev re
minded him "The stockholders had no
right to ask for a division of It."
"They would, If wo had not put It out
of harm's rond," Insisted tho Governor
"That much has been saved to the men
who rctllv earned It, hut 1 should not
like to sco n similar profit exposed To
my mind, a 7 per cent, dividend Is an
oven worse folly "
"It gives confidence In tho stock."
nrgtied Marley "The public would never
bo so oncer to take up this new Issue,
If It had not been for that 7 per cent
. "That's what It was for," Interpolated
Sledge, looking out of tho window Into
the sunken garden, and vainly hunting
the hand-holo In tho gate.
"It has served Its purposo," granted
Allerton, "but taxpayers aro becoming
greedy. When they soo tho stockholders
of n public corporation making 7 per
cent they want somo of It, nnd try to
make tho corporations pay part of their
taxes In overv cltv of Importance the
voter are demanding pnv for street car

wnv companies, In nddltlon, benr half
the cost of nil street Improvements "
"It's a bad outlook," agreed Governor
Waver. "Frankly, as soon its I receive
my new Issue of stock, I shall have It
qulctlv placed on sale "
Mnrley looked nt him indignantly
"Why, the street railway company Is
entering on the greatest period of
prosperltv In Its career." he nsserted
"There'll be no trouble about franchises.
The clt Is wild to have the Improve
ments, and must hnve them "
Allerton looked at him vvonderlnglv
"Waver is right," he stated "I shall
sell mv own stock, and I'll venture to say
that Sledgo has alrendy made silent ar
rangements for disposing of his Do you
know that the franchises nt present
granted In this Stntp aro revocable, and
that It ii not possible to secure one
which Is positively safo for longer than
ten-year periods' When vou come to
the renewal of your franchises, Marley,
you will be met with a ilemnnd for pay,
nnd will have other restrictions Imposed
on vou. Our present franchise law. In
v lew- of the public tendency, Is a bad ono
for Investors "
"Let's fix it." suggested Sledge.
"I'm afraid It's too lnte," protested
"N'ot for a new gag," dissented Sledge
"A new one can be put over quick.
"I fancv that there should be protec
tion somewhere," opined the Governor.
"No matter what chnnges In public senti
ment, the Investing class, upon which tho
public depends for prosperity, must al
ways be protected "
"Hut how" Inquired the Senator.
"How, In this particular case'"
'Head 'cm off," grunted Sledge. "I'm
keeping my stock "
"I'd be glad to hold mine," stated the
Senator. "But how- Is It to be made of
"That's up to ou." Sledge replied,
rising "Figure It out, and see me to

a third of a million dollars In the street

too capable and too wealthy to be ordered

"I would suggest tomorrow," he stated
eolillj. "I should much prefer to talk
with ou during business hours."
"This ain't business," said Sledge, lead
ing the way Into the library, where he
took a seat In an alcove
Marley followed him reluctantly.
"If It Is my family affairs " he began
"Sit down," directed Sledge. "Bert Gli

"Tell him to quit or make good,"

I can interfere," reproved Mr. Marley.

"He's a friend of yours," charged
"Yea," acknowledged Marley, feeling
that he could afford 'to acknowledge It
now that the street car reorganization
had gone beyond the point where Sledge
could stop It.
"How about this marriage with Molly"
"That's Molly's affair," stated Marley
"You know he's broke, don't you"

"You won't stop It, then?"
"Certainly not," declared Marley feel

could not, In tho slightest degree, In
fluence Molly. "I might, perhaps, prefer a

not need to make It a matter of money,

with a pleasant feeling of superiority,
upon the moment soon to come, when this
political and commercial bully would bo

He found Molly quite busy, but since she
was occupied with a State Representa

Maor, and the joung champion of the
tennis players' club, he borrowed her
She was astounded to see how they
melted before him, and almost had a feel
ing of wildly clutching at tho coat tails
of the Mayor, whom she heartily dii liked
"I'm sorry for ou, Molly," Sledge told
her as he pre-empted the piano alcove. "I
got to hand ou another Jolt."
"You're a fast worker," she compli
mented him "But ou'll hnve to work
faster I Just gave Willie Walters n hint
of the splendid news we are to have for

'Good work'" applauded Sledge "I
want that pulled quick.
"All right, go as far as ou like." she
confidently Invited him "We'll see who
gets the worst of It Bv tho way, may

Sledge chuckled ,
"Your dad says he don't care If Bert
Is a bum "
"He Isn't' ' she hotly denied.
"Your dad's a game sport. He says he
has enough .money for both."
"Good for daddy"' che cried, delighted.
"Sure"' grunted Sledge. "I'm goana

Sledgo walked back through the Occi
dent In Euch a mood that the regular
members of the "Good morning. Ben"
brigade fell away from him like bar
files from a cake of Ice. Even Doc Tur
ner, waiting the dally advent of the
boss, met with the rebuff of stony si
lence, and sat down in his favorite news
paper corner, with his crusted brown
derby Jammed down to his ears and his
Inch-long stub of cigar puckered tightly
in at the corner of his wrinkled lips,
where it looked, at a distance, like a

veyed news to the big chief so long that
he felt a proprietorship in that depart

Bendlx came In a few minutes later.
"What's the matter with Sledge this
morning?" snarled Doc.
"How do I know? Immediately snarled
Bendlx "I don't sleep with him."

weighing tho matter carefully, for of
such trifles was political control con
structed. "Is that the worst news I can carry?"
demanded tho other, disappointed.
"If there's any worse we'll send It out
when the wagon backs up"' responded
"All right, captain," agreed the tale
bearer "Say, can ou slip me an ace''
BendK slipped him an ace from a fund
provided for that purpose.
"Thanks'" said the thug. "Say, what's
the mntter with Sledge?"
"None of jour business!" snapped Ben
dlx, with a wondering glance at the
back room, and he waded through the
usual morning line-up with that wonder
glowing on him The actions and bearing
of &ledgc varied by so t 1 a hair's
breadth from day to day that a notable
variation meant something.
He found Sledge standing up, and then
he knew that there- was something in the
'Get Bozzam1" directed Sledge, and
Bendlx went straight out to tho tele
phono. "Get Davis," directed Sledge when Ben
dlx came back; and Bendlx, vaguely pltv
Ing somebody, hurried out to the tele
"Get Feeder'" was the next order. Ben
dlx almost whistled as he hurried out to
locate by telephone tho ex-County Treas
urer, who for two ears had been draw
ing a handsome salary from Sledge for
keeping his mouth shut r.bout tho public
"Get Gaily!'' rumbled Sledge, who had
not moved from his contemplative post
by tho window, and Bendlx, keeping his
growing wonder to himself and repljing
with a shrug to the soberly questioning
glance of the concerned Phil, telephoned
for the Sledge leader In the City Council
Sledge, having sent for everybody he
needed, was sitting more quietly In his
accustomed chair when Bendlx returned
from his last trip, nnd was looking with
his usual stolldness out of tho window,
after having donned the fresh red rose,
which he put on religiously three times
a day Blnce he had met Molly Marley.
"Council meeting this afternoon?" he
asked "Tw-o-thlrty," answered Bendlx.
"How much of the stock Is subscribed
In the reorganized street railway?"
"Hundred nnd eighty-five thousand. I
got the report Just before I came over "
"Get ours on the market. Gum-shoe
sales, but do it quick."
"Who's to be soaked Marley7" guessed
"The limit," assented Sledge. "Bendlx,

"1 don't see how," worried Bendlx.
