Sequel to The Bow of Orange Ribbon
Copyrisht lWO by Amelia E Darr
A Bhort time after Cornelia came
home Doctor Moran returned from
his professional visits Nature had
left the impress of her nobility on his
finely formed forehead nothing but
truth and kindness looked from his
candid eyes On entering the room
he drew his wife close to his heart
and kissed her affectionately
I have had a morning full of feel
ing There Is no familiarity with
Death however often you meet him
And you have met Death this
morning I see that John
You are right Ava I must now
tell you that Elder Semple died this
Tho dear old man He has beon
sick and sorrowful over since his wife
died Were any of his sons present
Nono of them The two eldest
have been long away Neil was
obliged to leave New York when the
Act forbidding Tory lawyers to prac
tice was passed But he was not quite
alone his old friend Joris Van
Heemskirk was with him to the last
moment The love of these old men
for each other was a very beautiful
There is nothing to fear in such
a death
Nothing at all Last week when
Cornelia and I passed his house he
was leaning on the garden gate and
he spoke pleasantly to her and told
her she was a bonnie lassie Where
Is Cornelia
In her room John she went to
Duyckincks this morning for me
and George Hyde met- her again and
they took a walk together on the
She told you about it
Oh yes and without inquiry
for the Hydes fatner and son I
would prefer to hear no more about
Nothing further was said on the
subject but the doctor looked more
attentively at his daughter than was
usual with him He was more silent
than ordinary and as ne went out
told Cornelia she would do well not
to appear in public
The city is in mourning he
said and respectable women who
have no real business or duty to take
them from their homes will pay the
reverence of seclusion in them until
after Franklins funeral
A couple of hours later Cornelia
was sitting at her tambour frame
passing her needle slowly through
and through the delicate muslin She
was desiring no companionship
when Arenta entered with her usual
little flurry and rustle Arenta kiss
ed her friend and took off her hat
and cloak saying as she did so
I have been at Aunt Angelicas
all morning and we talked a great
many people over that is Aunt
Angelica talked
Now I can tell you something
worth hearing about Gen Hyde Lis
When Madame Hyde was Kather
ine Van Heemskirk and younger
than you are she had two lovers
one Capt Dick Hyde and the other
a young man called Nell Semple
and they fought a duel about her
and nearly cut each other to pieces
Oh It is the very truth I assure
you And while Hyde still lay be
tween life and death Miss Van
Heemskirk married him and as soon
as he was able he carried her off at
midnight to England and there they
lived in a fine old house until tho
war Then they came back to New
York and Hyde went into the Conti
nental army and did great things I
suppose for as we all know he was
made a general And will you please
only try to imagine it of Mrs General
Hyde A woman so lofty So calm
Will you Imagine her as Catherine
Van Heemskirk In a short quilted
peticoat with her hair hanging in
two braids down her back running
away at midnight with Gen Hyde
He was her husband She com
mitted no fault
Cornelia shall I tell you why you
are working bo close to the window
this afternoon
You are going to say something I
would rather not hear Arenta
Truth is wholesome if not agree
able and the truth is you expect
Lieut Hyde to pass But he will not
do so I saw him booted and spur
red on a swift horse going up the
river road He was bound for Hyde
Manor I am sure Now Cornelia
you need not move your frame for
no one will disturb you He will not
be insinuating himself with violets
and compelling you to take walks
with him on the Battery Oh
i I-
Cornelia shall not have anything
Very good I must look after that
young fellow But he said the
words without much care and Mrs
Moran was not satisfied
Then you do not disapprove the
meeting John she asked
Yes I do George Hyde has too
many objectionable qualities His
father is an Englishman of the most
pronounced type and this young man
is quite like him I want no English
man in my family
There have been many Dutch mar
riages among the Morans
That Is a different thing The
Dutch as a race have every desir
able quality The English are nat
ural despots The young mans
faults are racial they are in the
blood Cornelia shall not have any
thing to do with him Why do you
speak of such disagreeable things
It is well to look forward John
No It is time enough to meet
nnnnvanres when thev arrive As
to do with him
nelia you see I am not to be put out
of your confidence Why did you not
tell me
You have given me no opportun
ity and as you know all why should
I say any more about it
Cornelia my dear companion let
us be honest if we die for it And
you may as well tell me of your lit
tle coquetries with George Hyde for
I shall be sure to find them out Now
I am going home for I must look
after the tea table But you will
not be sorry for it will leave you
free to think of
Please Arenta
Very well I will have considera
tions Good bye
Then the door closed and Cornelia
was left alone But the atmosphere
of the room was charged with
Arentas unrest and a feeling of dis
appointment was added to it She
suddenly realized that her lovers
absence from the city left a great
vacancy She had a new strange
happiness new hopes new fears and
new wishes but they were not an
unmixed delight for she was also
aware of a vague trouble a want that
nothing in her usual duties satisfied
in a word she had crossed the
threshold of womanhood and was
no longer a girl
Throwing Things Into Confusion
Prudence declares that whenever a
person is in that disagreeable situa
tion which compels him to ask what
shall I do that the wisest answer
is nothing But such answer did
not satisfy George Hyde He was so
much in earnest so honestly in love
that he felt his doubts and anxieties
could only be relieved by action I
will go to my mother he thought
And this resolution satisfied him so
well that he carried it out at once
But it was after dark when he reach
ed the tall stone portals of Hyde
Manor House
The great building loomed up dark
and silent there was but one light
visible It was in his mothers usual
sitting room and as soon as he saw
It he began to whistle She heard
him afar off and was at tho door to
give him a welcome
Joris my dear one we were talk
ing of you she cried as he leapei
from the saddle to her arms 80
glad are we Come in quickly Well
are you Quite weLL Nov then
am happy Happy as can be Look
now Richard she called as she
flung the door open and entered with
the handsome smiling youth at her
In his way the father was just as
much pleased Kate my dear
heart he cried let us have some
thing to eat The boy will be hun
gry as a hunter after his ride And
George what brings you home We
were just telling each other your
mother and I that you were in the
height of the citys follies
Indeed sir there will be few fol
lies for some days Mr Franklin is
dead and the city goes into mourn
Tis a fate that all must meet
said the General but death and
Franklin would look each other in
the face as friends He had a
work to do he did it well and it is
finished That is all What other
news do you bring
It is said that Mirabeau Is arrest
ed somewhere for something I did
not hear the particulars And the
deputies are returning to the Prov
inces drunk with ineir own import
ance Mr Hamilton says Revolution
In France has gone raving mad and
converted twenty four millions of
people into savages
I hate the French said the Gen
eral passionately It is a natural
instinct with me If I thought I had
one drop of French blood in me I
would let it out with a dagger
George winced a little He remem
bered that the Morans were of French
extraction and he answered
After all father we must judge
people individually Mere race is
not much
George Hyde What are you say
ing Race is everything It is the
strongest and deepest of all human
feelings Nothing conquers its
Except love I have heard father
that Love never asks of what race
art thou or even whose son or
daughter art thou
You have heard many foolish
things George that Is one of them
Men and women marry out of their
own nationality at their peril I took
my life in my hand for your mothers
She was worthy of the peril
God knows it

High Salaries and Large Fortunes Are
the Rule
The Lord High Chancellor of Great
Britain is second only in position to
the Archbishop of Canterbury and he
enjoys an income of 10000 a year
The Lord Chief Justice of England has
a salary of 8000 a year The Mas
ter of the Rolls has a salary of 6000
a year and the Lords of Appeal in Or
dinary have the same The lord jus
tices of the Court of Appeal and the
judges of the High Court earn 5000
a year each The masters of the High
Court are chosen either from barris
ters or from solicitors but all the
other officeholders to whom we have
aHuded must have come from the bar
The Attorney General makes much
more money than any of these digni
taries His salary is only 7000 bu
he has fees as well sometimes to a
very large amount The Solicitor Gen
eral has 6000 a year besides his
fees Of course the double work le
gal and parliamentary which these
officers have to undertake is most ar
duous requiring an iron constitution
and a mind that requires but little
time for rest The private practition
ers in some few cases make larger in
comes than any of the official persons
at the bar It is not indeed many
who make salaries of five figures but
there may be always one or two lead
ers who are achieving this The lead
ers who are chiefly before the public
in ordinary cases do not often make
more than from 5000 to 6000 a
year Larger fortunes are frequently
made by men who specialize in pat
ent cases who are engaged in rating
appeals and compensation work or
who practice their profession at the
parliamentary bar Cornhill Maga
Entry by Nomination In Navy
The writer of an article in Pages
Magazine on Lord Selbornes new
scheme for the training of British
naval officers makes some pointed re
marks on the present methods of en
try to the navy He states that the
proposed mode of entry by nomina
tion is a relic of admiralty patronage
which the board is unwilling to re
linquish but whether the admirals
like it or not it must soon go the
way of all such antiquated privileges
Open competition is sure to come
within the next few years The re
sult of this entry by nomination will
be to keep the naval service as far
as the officers are concerned in the
family circles of the admiralty and
their friends so that parents without
influence inside of that charmed circle
will have no chance of getting their
boys into the navj i however desirable
the boys themselves may be or how
ever ready the parents may be to in
cur the heavy expense of educating
their boys for the service of their

Payment by Weight When Practicable
Will Also Increase Pay The Per
Diem Men Are to Receive Same Sal
ary for Less Work
NEW YORK The Herald prints
the following as a summary of the
findings of the coal strike commission
appointed by President Roosevelt
which It is expected will be handed
to the president within a wdek
There will undoubtedly be at least
a 10 per cent advance in the pay for
mining to take effect from the time
tho miners returned to work last Oc
tober The per diem employes will not
have their wages increased but will
be recommended for the same pay of
a day of nine hours
The system of pay will be regulated
Wherever practicable the operators
will be required to pay by weight in
stead of by the car and elsewhere by
the lienal yard The miners will have
checking representatives at their own
expense This will practically amount
to a second increase in wages
There will be Indirect recognition of
the union which will come when the
findings are submitted by President
Roosevelt to John Mitchell as presi
dent of the miners union
The causes of the strike as found by
the commission will not be comforting
to the coal mining companies
The boycott will be condemned and
the principle will be laid down that
a miner has a right to work without
molestation even though he does not
belong to the union
The terms of the verdict are to hold
good for three years and recommenda
tions are to be made for settlements
of other questions at the end of that
In local disputes the operators will
be advised to treat with committees
of the miners and there may be a sug
gestion of a local board of arbitration

Marshals Fire on Defenseless Citi
INDIANAPOLIS The official re
port of Chris Evans who was sent to
tho West VIriglnia coal fields to in
vestigate the killing of colored miners
at Atklnsvllle on February 25 has
been received at the headquarters of
tho United Mine Workers
The report says General St Clair
who is the attorney for the coal com
panies created an agitation to have
the men aVresied and taken to
Charleston and that immediately
afterward arrangements were mado
with the United States marshal by
the Mine Workers officials to give
bond for all who were arrested but
that later on account of the agita
tion created by Deputy Marshal Cun
ningham the agreement entered Into
with the marshal was broken and
Cunningham was sent to arrest the
According to the report there was
great feeling against Cunningham and
the men decided not to allow him to
arrest them and he was driven away
Mr Evans says he sent a telegram to
the men to submit quietly but the
coal companies who own all the tel
egraph and telephone lines connected
with the town refused to deliver it
and before he could get any message
to the men Cunningham and his dep
uties who he says were the worst
characters he could collect went to
the town a second time and killed the
miners in the night time in their beds
Mr Evans says he went to the scene
of the trouble the next morning when
forty eight men had been arested for
conspiracy to kill Cunningham and
found in a house occupied by a col
ored man called Stonewall Jackson
the dead bodies of William Dodson
William Clark and Richard Clayton
all colored The report continues
On inquiry we find that the wife of
Jackson with four children together
with eight colored men were in the
house and that about daybreak all
were awakened by shots being fired
into the house from the outside This
shooting took place without anything
being said and the three colored men
I have mentioned were found dead on
the floor Two were in their night
clothes and the other one partly
dressed with one shoe on partly
laced and the other foot bare We
visited another house where Joseph
Hizer lay mortally wounded having
been shot through the window as he
was stooping to put his trousers en
after getting out of bed Hizer lived
with his sister and she made the state
ment at the inquest that she pleaded
with those shooting not to kill her
children and in reply Cunningham
Women and children must take
care of themselves
In no instance do we find where the
persons were asked to surrender until
after the deputies had commenced to
shoot at the occupants of the houses
First Opinion in an Interstate Com
merce Case
WASHINGTON The United States
supreme court on Monday rendered its
first opinion in an interstate com
merce case in which the Eikins act
passed at the last session of congress
was involved The case was that of
the Missouri Pacific Railroad company
versus the United States involving a
question of discrimination on the part
of the railroad as between places It
was brought at the instance of the In
terstate Commerce commission
The railroad filed a demurrer chal
lenging the regularity of the proceed
ings but the circuit court and court
of appeals decided the case in favor
of the government These decisions
were reversed by Mondays opinion
which was delivered by justice White
He said that by the terms of the old
law under which the case was tried
the proceedings would not have been
regular but that under the Eikins law
it would be The court therefore re

The following story is told of an
American who visited an old Eng

up to the roof for the sake of the view
and the rector pointed out how badly
in need of repair were the leads
going on to talk in a hopeless way of
the poverty of the parish
The American rubbed his chin and
then offered to put on a new roof at
his own expense The delighted rec
tor closed with the offer The Ameri
can was as good as his word and
when on the completion of the work
the rector thanked him effusively he
quietly confessed to having made a
very respectable profit out of his
charitable work
The rector asked for an explana
tion and then the American informed
him that there is a certain amount
of silver in lead which was now ex
tracted but in old times it was left
because its presence in the lead was
not suspected The quantity of the
silver in the lead on the church roof
was sufficient to pay all expenses and
to give the American a tangible profit
