Kan acks him to call.
Stuart wants Woodman to end his suit
against Blvcns, but tho doctor stands
firm. Blvcns aids Stuart In his Investi
gation of crooked financiers.
A Straight Tip.
NAN received tho announcement
of Blvens' failure to settle
Woodman's suit with a grim
resolution to win now, at all
hazards. Tho sensational reports of
Stuart's action against tho big 'finan
ciers had given her quick mind the
cue to a new line of stratagem. She
"You are not going to givo up a thing
I've set my heart on merely because
old Woodman's a fool, are you?" she
asked her husband, -with a touch of
scorn. "Jim Stuart is tho best friend
you ever 'had. Ho has become one of
the moat famous men In America. 1
.want him at our next entertainment."
"The thing that puzzlos mo," Blvcns
broke in, "is why he will not come to
the houoe. When I meet him down
town he's always friendly."
Nan's llpa quivered with a queer lit
"Will ho succeed in this action
against these men?"
"No; he can't get tho facts. If he
could he'd shake tlio foundations of the
"Why not give tho facts to him?"
"I had thought of that; but it might
bring on a panic"
"What have you to krac by it?"
"Nothing, but a panic's a dangerous
thing to monkey with."
"It couldn't injuro Stuart?" his wife
"No. It couldnt hurt him. On tho
other hand, I might make him the un
conscious Instrument of a great per
sonal vengeance, doubio my fortune
and possibly land Jim in tho White
"You must do it. denrr his wife
cried, trembling with suppressed ex
citement "It's playing with dynamite."
"It's worth the risk to double your
fortune. Do it for my Bake!"
Nan loaned close and pressed her
husband's hand whllo her dark eyes
'found their way into his heart
"I'll do it," lie said with firm ac
cent. "Ill phone him at once."
When Stuart sat down with Blvens
In one of the magnificent jprtvato din
ing rooms of his milllocairo ehib two
days later ho -was etracfc vHix the per
fection of? tho flnandert Orces and the
easy elegance of his manners.
"Nan has surely done wonders with
some pretty crude material!" he mused.
Ho recalled Nan's diary with grim

hin huge cigars and drew from a mo

his chair a typewritten manuscript. He
turned its leaved thoughtfully a mo

"And some in tho penitentiary. I'vo

a lot of hard things about rich malefac

"No, I think you're too shrewd to be
caught in that class, Cal."
"I pride myself that I am. It's only
tho clumsy fool who gets tangled In
the criminal law. But a lot of them

Stuart glanced rapidly through tho
flrst page of tho document and his
eyes began to dance with excitement.

ed, "is twenty-four hours' notice be

"I'll let you know."
Stuart rof)e quickly, placed tho docu

The deeper the young lawyer probed
into the mass of corruption Btveos had

became his surprise. That men whose
names were tho synonyms of honesty
and fair dealing, men intrusted with
the management of companies whoso
assots represented tho savings of mil

millions pf JWplees women and chil

world were habitually prostituting
their trusts for personal gain, stagger
Ho delayed action and began a care
ful, patient thorough Investigation.
As it proceeded his amazement In
creased. Ho found that Blvens hnd
only scratched tho surface of the truth.
New York, tho financial center of tin
nation, had gone mad with the Insane
passion for money at all haaards by
all means, fair or foul. The nation
was on the tidal wave of the most
wonderful indue trial boom in Its his
tory. Tho price of stocks had reached
fabulous figured and still soared to
greater heights. Muhonalros wore
springing up, Mko mushrooms, m a
Two months hnd passed einco Blvens
placed in tho district attorney's bands
the document which was destined to
make sad history In tho annals of the
metropolis. Stuart felt that the time
had come to act. It was his solemn
duty t tho people.

Tho financier extended his delicate
hand and with a cordial gtnllo led Stu

the loo like coldness of his slender

He handed tho volume to Stuart,
clonal tho safe and resumed his peat.
"You may take that book with you,
Jim," 1ms sold quietly. "I trust to your
honor not to reveal Its contents ex
cept In the discharge of your sworn
duty as an officer of tho law. You will
find in it tho record of tho distinguish
ed president's private llfo for tho past
ten years without tho omission of a
singlo event of any Importance."
Stuart glanced through tho book with
"How did you come into possession
of such facts?"
"No trouble nt all," was the easy
answer. "It only requires a lKtlo mon
ey and a little pattenco and a Uttlo
caro in selecting tho right men for tho
right Job. Any man in tho business
world who thinks ho can do as he
ploasos in this town will wnko some
morning with a decided Jolt The war
for financial supremacy has developed
a secret service which approaches per
fection. Not only do I systematically
watch my employees until I know ev
ery crook and turn of their llvos, but
I wntch with even greater caro tho
heads of every rival firm In every de
partment of tho Industrial world where
my Interests touch theirs.
. "I not only wntch tho heads of firms;
I watch their trusted assistants and
confidential men. In that big safe a
thousand secrets lie locked whoso rov
olation would furnish matter enough to
run tho yellow Journals for the next
fivo years. Modern business is war,
the fiercost and most cruel the world
has over known. It is of greater im
portance to a modern captain of in
dustry to know tho plans of his enemy
than it ever was to tho commanding
general of an opposing army."
"I see," Stuart responded thought
fully. "There are men down there in the
street now," Blvens went on dreamily,
"who are wearing silk hats todny for
vhom the prison tailor is cutting a suit.
I have their records in that silent little
steel clad room. It's a pitiful thing,
but it's life.
"The scorcest thing in New York to
day, Jim, Is the man who can't bo
bought nud sold. Tho thing that's be
yond price in tho business world Is
character combined with brains.
That's why I made you tho offer I did
once upon a time to como In with me.
There are positions today in New York
with a salary of half a million a year
waiting for men who can fill them. If
I could find one man of the highest or
der of creative and executive ability
who would stand by mo In my enter
prises I could be tho richest man In
tho world in ten years."
Stuart lifted his eyes from the rec
ord be was casually scanning and
smiled Into Blvens' dark, serious face.
Tho look silenced the speaker. The
Uttlo man knew instinctively that Stu
art was at that moment weighing his
own llfo and character by the merciless
standard ho had set up for others.
Judged by conventional laws, be bad
nothing to fear. He was a faithful
member of his church. He gave lib
erally to its work and gavo generous
ly to a hundred worthy charities. Ho
loved his wife with old fashioned loy
alty and tenderness and grieved that
she was childless. He stood by his
friends and fought his enemies, asking
no quarter nnd giving none.
Yet in his heart of hearts ho know
that, however loftily ho might dis
course at present about "character,"
"honor," "integrity" and "fair deal
ing," ho had stolen tho formula from
his big hearted employer, Woodman,
with which he had laid tho foundation
of his fortune. It was tho first half
minion that camo hard. It was this
flrst half million that bore the stain of
His -other questionable acts on which
tho fate of millions had often hung ho
hod no difficulty in Justifying. Busi
ness was war.
Blvens waited for Stuart to speak.
Tho moment was one big with fate.
Stuart was about to reach a decision
that would make history. No one
know so well Its importance as the
keen Intellect that gleamed behind the
Uttlo black eyes watching with tiro--loss
patience. J3elow he could hear
tho roar of the city's llfo. Men bought
and sold with no fear of tomorrow.
Yet a single word from tho Hps of tho
tall, clean shaved young officer bf tho
law and a storm would break which
might tear from tho foundations Insti
tutions on whoso solidity modern civ
ilisation Deemed to root
"Well, Jim," Blvens said at length,
"you nro going to act?"
Bttmrt rose abruptly, his reply sharp
"Yes, I'm going to act!
"It's my duty."
Blvens grasped his hand.
"I congratulate you, Jim. You are
going to do a big thing, one of the
blggeet things In our history. You aro
going to teach tho mighty that the law
is mightier. It ought to land you at
tho very top in politics or any other
old place you'd llko to climb."
"Thafs something which doesn't In

enforcement of Justice. There's one
thing I still cant understand why

honor of the achievement, if good shall
como to the country, Is really yours,
"And you can't conceive of my act

fingers again stroked his beard, press

The door had scarcely closed on Stu
art when Blvens pressed tho button
which called his confidential secretary.
In n moment tho man stood at his el
bow with the tenso erect bearing of an
orderly on the field of battle. The
quick nervous touch of the master's
hand on that button had told to Ids
sensitive ears the story of a coming
llfo nnd death struggle. His words
came with sharp, nervous energy:
"A meeting of the Allied Bankers

each. They enter one at a time that
no one on tho outsldo sees them como."
