John Enderby, a 'squire of Lincolnshire,
is offered knighthood by Kin Charles
the First, while the latter Is In Boston on
business.- Enderby refuses the honor, on
the ground that he cannot afford to pay
tho fee contingent to Its acceptance. . The
king is very angry, as the fee Is the main
thins; Involved, and Is encouraged in his
displeasure by Lord Rlpplngdale, an old
enemy of Enderby's. Enderby persists
In his refusal, and the kins; thereupon
confiscates his estate. On the way home
Enderby Is warned by a stilt-walker of the
fens to keep away from the king that
night. Enderby suspects a plot against
the king, and, still loyal, raises a company
and rides after him, arriving Just in timo
to rescue the king and Lord Rlpplngdale
from a band of thieves who had attacked
their party. Enderby rides away. The
king, although mollified by Enderby's gal
lantry, declares that the knighthood must
be accepted, and that then he will make
Enderby a baron. Enderby reaches En
derby House and describes his experiences
to his daughter Felicity. She supports
him In his position, but his son, Garrett
Enderby, while avowing loyalty to his
father, expresses dissatisfaction at the
refusal of the barony. Soon Lord Rlp
plngdale arrives with the king's troopers
and sends in Sir John Mowbray as a mes
senger. The latter, an honorable young
knlght.seeking Enderby's daughter, urges
him for her sake to accept the king's ulti
matum. Enderby refuses both Mowbray
and Rippingdale, and the latter prepares
to storm the house. Garrett Enderby dis
plays a flag of truce, and his father, over
whelmed at bis son's disloyalty, surren
ders. All are placed under arrest, but Sir
John Mowbray privately aids Enderby
and Felicity to escape. Garrett Is knight
ed by Charles. The father and daughter
go to Holland. When Cromwell comes
into power, he sends for Enderby, of
whom he has heard, and offers him duties

to his estate. There Enderby finds Gar

Two months went by. The battle of
Dunbar was .fought, and Charles had
lost It. Among the prisoners was Gar
rett Enderby, who had escaped from
his captors on the way from Enderby
House to London, and had joined the
Scotch army. He was now upon trial
for his life. Cromwell's anger against
him was violent. The other prisoners
of war were treated as such and were
merely confined to prison, but young
Enderby was-charged with blasphemy
and sedition, and with assaulting one

The young man's Judges leaned for
ward expectantly as John Enderby
took his place. The Protector himself
sat among them.
"What Is your name, sir?" asked
"John Enderby, your highness."
"It hath been said that you hold a
title given you by the man of sin."
"I have never taken a title from any
man, your highness."
A look of satisfaction crossed the
gloomy and puritanical faces of the of
ficers of the court martial. Other
questions were put, and then came the
vital points. To the first of these, as
to whether young Enderby had ut
tered malignant and seditious libels
against the Protector, the old man
would answer nothing.
"What speech hath ever been be
tween my son and myself," he said, "is
between my son and myself only."
A start of anger traveled round the
eats of the court martial. Young
Enderby watched his father curiously
"Duty to country comes before all
private feeling," said Cromwell. "I
command you, sir, on peril of a charge
of treason against yourself, to answer
the question of the court 'If thy right
hand offend -thee, cut it off; if thy foot
cause thee to stumble, cut it off. The
pernicious branch of the Just tree shall
be cloven and cast Into the brush heap.

"What acts have passed between my
son and myself , are between my Bon
and myself only." replied the old man,
steadily. He did not look at his son,
but presently the tears rolled slowly
down his cheeks, so that more than one
of his Judges who had sons of their
own were themselves moved. But they
took their cue from the Protector, and
made no motion towards the old man's
advantage. Once more Cromwell es
sayed to get Enderby's testimony, but,
"I will not give witness against my
on," was John Enderby's constant and
dogged reply. , At last Cromwell rose
"We will have Justice In this realm
of England," said he, "though it turn
the father against the son and the son

Turning his blazing; eyes upon John
Enderby, he said:

Two days later at Southampton the
old man boarded a little packet boat,
bound for Havre.
The years went by again. At last all
was changed in England.. The mon
archy was restored, and all the land
was smiling and content. One day
there was a private reading In the
queen's chamber. The voice of the
reader moved in pleasantly yet vibrant
"The king was now come to a time
when his enemies wickedly began to
plot against him secretly and to op
pose him in his purposes; which In
his own mind were beneficent and
magnanimous. From the shire where
his . labors had been most unselfish
came the first malignant Insult to his
person and the first peril of his life

The king had entered quietly as the
lady-tn-waiting read this passage to
the queen, and, attracted by her voice,
continued to listen, signifying to the
queen, by a gesture, that she and her
ladies were not to rise. This was in
the time when Charles was yet de
voted to his princess of Portugal, and
while she was yet happy and undis
turbed by rumors or assurances of
her lord's wandering affections.
"And what shire was that?" asked
the king at that point where the chron

Charles made a gentle and playful
gesture of dissent from her extreme
formality, and , with a look of admira

"My Lord Rlpplngdale should know
something of . that 'first violence' of

Ingham. He is of Lincolnshire."
"He knows all, your majesty; he was
present at that 'first violence.' "

asked the young lady, with heightened
color, and a look of adventure and pur
pose In her eyes. Perhaps, too,' there-
was - a look or anger In them not
against the king, for there was a sort
of eagerness or appealing In the glance
she cast toward his majesty.
The queen lifted her eyes to the king
half doubtfully, for the question seem
ed to her perilous, Charles being little
inclined, as a rule, to sit long in her
chamber or listen to serious reading,
though he was ever gay In conversa
tion and alert for witty badinage. His
majesty, however, seemed more than
ever complaisant; he was even boyish
The young lady had been but a short
time In the household, having coma
over with the queen from Portugal,
where she had been brought to the no
tice of the then princess by her great
coolness and bravery in rescuing a
young lady of Lisbon from grave peril.
She had told the princess then that Bhe
was the daughter of an exiled English
gentleman, and was In the care of her
aunt, one Mistress Falklngham, while
her father was gone on an expedition
to Italy. The princess, eager to learn
English, engaged her, and she had re
mained In the palace till the princess
left for England. A year passed, and
then the queen of England sent for her
and she had been brought close to the
person of her majesty.
At a motion from Charles, who sat
upon a couch, Idly tapping the buckles
on his shoes with his gold-handled staff
the young lady placed herself again at
the queen's feet and continued reading.
"It was when the king was come to

"Ah. ah. my Lord Rippingdale!" said
Charles, half aloud, "so this la where

fair and Just account of the king's

and of his rescue of the king at But

the king, nodding towards the pages

Special Correspondence of The Tribune. .
New York, April 3. Hammerstein's
big Olympia was thronged with a great
human mass one certain evening I
chose to witness and hear the famous
Yvette Gullbeit. Criticism comes not
within the province of this Indttement,
but, O Hammerstein! you are the peer
of our dear departed Barnum.
I watched that complex assemblage
with mingled amusement and surprise.
It brought to my mind an incident of
an hour before. I had just filled an en
gagement at an aristocratic sympos
ium in the vicinity, and had labored
with my auditors for a full half-hour
with a seal that rivaled Mark Twain
in his memorable effort to elicit a re
sponsive shrug of approval from a
hearer, who, unknown to him, was
deaf,. dumb and blind. I talked with
the man on the roof, harangued with
man in the cellar, hailed the charcoal
man, and gave his receding tones a
distance of a mile; gave an inspired
discourse on the phonograph; threw
my best effort into the dialogue with
my mannlkins; imitated Keene, Irv
ing, the Kernells, Harrlgan, Richmond
and Glenroy, The Nawns, Stuart Rob
son and others, and got for my pains
not a nod, scarcely a smile. By way
of diversion I introduced some magic
and as a concluding feature referred
to some of my exploits published in the
Sunday World and perpetrated some of
my feats upon my cold hearers. Upon
my reference to the Sunday World
there was an instantaneous buzt
among my audience, and I caught such
observations as "Oh, he's that fellow
that" "In the World" "you know"
"the elevated trains" etc.. etc. To
my amazement all present broke out
with loud applause and begged for a
repetition of my act. to which I re
sponded, and which when given elicit
ed the warmest applause. Well, Os
car: well, Yvette.
Not a seat was to be had at the Olym
pia. While awaiting the appearance of
Yvette I amused myself at the expense
of a part of the audience standing
"Hats off!" I shouted as from afar
A hundred hats were doffed.
"Everybody sit down!" I next called
In a voice which, I gathered from the
expressions on the faces of those near
by, came from the stage. Instantly the
balcony tiers were packed with a mass
of human freight. All sat down but
one man who hugged the brass rails
and who doubtless thought that to sur
render his position for a moment meant
a supreme effort to recover it.
"The gentleman standing up will sit
down," I called again.
He moved about uneasily.
"Sit down," I commanded peremp
torily, while the crowd around urged
him to obey.
He stood his ground.
By this time the commotion had at
tracted the patrons of the boxes and
the upper tiers. -
In a voice loud enough to be heard In
any part of the immense theater I
"John, go up In the second tier and
tell that man with the white overcoat
to Bit down."

don't sit down, I'll go up there and put

laughter of the audience. He was an
obstinate subject, but I mastered him.

Rev. John Griffith, who since last fall
has been supplying the pulpit of the
Sumner Avenue Presbyterian church. Is
a native of Ponterwyd. Cardiganshire,
the birthplace also of his distinguished
relative. Dr. John Rhys, principal of
Jesus college, Oxford, and probably tne
foremost Celtic scholar of our time.
When thirteen years of age, the family
moved to Glamorganshire. Mr. Grif
fith was educated for the ministry at
Canton Academy, Cardiff, the Ponty
pridd Academy, and Trevecca college,
with a brief post-graduate course at
Princeton seminary. In 1888 he came
out to Canada and labored for two
years as a home missionary In connec
tion with the Presbyterian church. On
his return home to Wales on a visit in
1891, he lent a helping hand to Rev.
John Pugh, of Cardiff, in connection
REV. JOHN GRIFFITH.
with the Forward movement which has
Ince grown to large proportions
throughout Wales. His mission work
while in Cardiff was varied by religious
Journalistic labors. His experience of
"slumming" in the town of Cardiff has
led him to think that the church has a
great work to do in that direction.
Less costly structures, better distribu
tion of churches and mission halls, and
a bureau of Information and help es
tablished In every church for work in
distinctively sociological lines, are some
of the ideas that have survived in Car
diff experience. He was an active
member of the Prison Gate mission,
which undertook to help and advise dis
charged prisoners. In 1892 he returned
to the United States, and, after preach
ing in Baltimore for awhile, finally
moved to Wisconsin, first to Columbus
and afterward to Oregon, of that state.
He resigned his pastorate of the Oregon
church a year ago, and paid a visit to
his native land. On his return last fall
he was Induced to supply the vacant
pulpit of the Sumner avenue Presbyter
ian church, and he has ever since held
that fort upon the hill. In the hope that
a better future awaits that church.
He has had some unique experience In
dealing with the bl-llngual difficulty,
first In Breckonshlre, then among the
Gaelic-speaking Highlanders of Canada
and the French Canadians. He loves
his nation and is fond of summing up
his creed In the Welsh adage "Car dy
genedl, cred a fu," "Love thy folk, cling
to their faith." But he believes that
true Welsh patriotism demands first of
all that proper provision be made for
the SDlrltual welfare of the children of
Welsh parents, who have ceased to use
the Welsh language. The religious con
dition of the thousands of Scranton
Welsh will In future depend largely on
the success of such experiments as the
Sumner avenue church. He is fond of
attending the meetings of the Hyde
Park Literary and Debating society,
and believes that much good is being
done by the free discussion of the great
questions of the day. Mr. Griffith Is
thirty-five years of age and unmarried.
Six of his cousins and one uncle are in
the ministry, four Presbyterians, two
Episcopalians, and one Baptist. His
parents live at Peutre, Rhondda Valley,
where his father is an elder of the Cal
vlnistic Methodist church.

to cancel his engagement. His decis

is long since Punch has had anything
more amusing than his examples of

"Father Ignatius," says ' the Man

on the Gorsedd controversy, said: "It
is the fashion nowadays with most peo
ple to depreciate anything old, because
It is old. The craving for something
'new' is quite chronic, even In religion.
Respecting the Gorsedd of the Bards,
I should prefer the authority of the
ancient MSS. copied by Llewellyn Slon
In the time of Queen Elizabeth at Rag
lan Castle. If the Gorsedd Is to be
given up, the Eisteddfod will very soon
degenerate into a Welsh and English
holiday outing for competitive purposes
only. I think that the Eisteddfod Is
already quite English enough, but Into
the Gorsedd the non-national element
cannot come, and It Is a guarantee
for the preservation of the true Eis
teddfodlc spirit which Wales cannot af
ford to lose." , .
There was a funny Incident In the
lobby of the House of Commons recent
ly. A gallant and honorable . Welsh
member had been called out to see a
visitor, who had sent for him from tho
Central hall. The member discovered
that the visitor had lost his purse, and
wanted to get back to Wales. He also
discovered that the unfortunate was
not one of his constituents, but came
from an adjoining constituency. As It
is a breach of etiquete for one member
to interfere with the concerns of an
other man's constituency, he set out
to look for the member from whose con
stituency the applicant came. It had
become known what the other member
was wanted for, and the two honorable
members, therefore, spent some time,
the one In chasing and the other In
evading the pursuit, to the great amuse
ment of the other members.
