' China is now taking a step -which
will, eventually lead to abolition of
foreign 'courts in Chinese territory for
the trial of foreigners and the 'adjudi

parties. ' Heretofore Chinese or others
accused of crime before Chinese
courts have had no lawyers for their
defense and no trial by jury. It is now
proposed that they shall have both.
Lawyers for counsel of parties to civil
suits and to argue legal questions will

Ahead of tke' steel layers were tke
Italians pUciag the cross ties la posi
tion to receive the track, aad here tke
forman's-badge' of oalce aad scepter
was a pick handle. . Above all. the
clamor and the 'shoaUngs Virginia
could hear the bull-bellow of this fore
man roaring out his " commands-4n
tejsos happily not understaadable "to
her; and once. she drew back' with a
little cry of. womanly"' shrinking when'
the pick handle thwacked. 'upon'.' the
shoulders of one who lagged. .."-" "
I" It was this bit of brutality "which
enabled 'her 'to', single out Wihtoa In
the throng" of workers. -He. heard the
blow, and the oath: that went with iC
and -she saw him .1. run forward, to
wrench the bludgeon- from- the bully's
hands and fling it afar." --What words'
emphasized the act she could not. hear,
out the little deed of swift justice
thrilled her curiously, and her.-heart
warmed to him as It had when he had
thrown olT his coat to fall to work' on
the derailed engine of toe "Limited."
"That was fine!" she .'said to herself,
-Most men in his 'placewouldn't care,
so long as the-work was done, and
done quickly. I wonder, if oh, you
, It, was Mr.(SomervilIe Darrak again
clothed upon and in. his right; mind;
otherwise the mind .of a master of men1
who will brook 'neither defeat -at the

would better go In to your aunt"
She put ,her. hand. . pa, his ana.
"Please let raerstayfoui here,'. Uncle.
Somerville,'she said. "I11.be good
and. not get in the" way."" -rr.

."An officer will be. here, right soon
now to maxe an. "arrest There may
be a fight or at least trouble, of a sort
you woulan't care to see, my deah."
"Is It is it Mr. Wlatoar she asked.;
He nodded. - -V - .(
"What has he been doing besides
.being "The Enemy? !
The Rajah's smile was ferocious. .
"Just now he is trespassing, and di
recting others to trespass, upon pri
vate property. Do you-see that dump
hp there on tne mountain? the hole
that looks like a mouth with a long,
gray beard hanging below It? That' Is
a mine, and its claim runs down across
the track where Misteh Winton Is just1
now spiking his rails."
. "But the right of way; I don't un-j
derstand," she began; then she stopped
short and clung to the strong arm.- Ar
man in a wide-flapped hat and cow-J
boy chapparajoes, with a. revolver on!
either hip, was crossing the stream on
the Ice. bridge to scramble up the em-j
bankment of the new line. .
rrhe officerrVshe asked, in an awed
whisper. . : ' '
The Rajah, made' a" sign of assent"
Then, identifying Winton in the .throng
of workers, he forgot Virginia's' pres
ence. "Confound him!" he fumed
"I'd give' a thousand' dollars' If he'd
faveh me by showing fight, so we"
could lock him up -on a criminal
VWhy, Uncle Somerville!" she cried.
But there was no time for reproach
es. The leather-breeched person mas
querading as the Argentine town mar
shal had climbed' the embankment
and singling out his man was reading
his warrant - - r
Contrary to Mr. Darrah's expressed
hope, Winton submitted quietly. With,
a word to his men-r-a -word that
stopped the strenuous labor-battle as
suddenly, as it had begun he turned
to. pick his way down. the. rough "hill
side at the heels of;the marshal.
For some reason that she could never
have set out in words -Virginia- was
distinctly disappointed. -. It was no
part of her desire to see the conflict
blaze up in violence, -but it nettled her
to see Winton give up so easily. Some
such.thought.as this Jiad possession of
her while the marshal and his prisoner
were picking .their way across the Ice,
and she was hoping that Winton would
give her a chance to requite him. If
only with a look.
But it was Town Marshal Peter Big
gin, affectionately known to his con
stituents as ."Bigginjin fete,", who.
gave her the coveted opportunity. In
stead of dllsappearing . decently with
his captive, .the marshal -made: -the
mistake of his life.' by marching Win
ton up the track to the -'private car,
thrusting him forward and. 'saying:
Here's .yer meat, .Guv'aor. What-all.
ufl ye like fer me to-do with hit?"
Now it is safe to assume that the
Rajah had no Intention'-' of. appearing
.thus openly as the instigator of Win-
ton's-. arrest Hence, 'if a fierce, scowl
and a. wordless .oath could 'malm, it is"
'to be feared: that the.overzealous'Mr.
Biggin would have .'been .physically
disqualified on the spot- As., it .was,
Mr Darrah's ebullient wrath 'could find
no adequate, speech forms,, and in the
eloquent little pause Winton- had time
to smile" up at 'Miss. Carteret and to.
"wish .her 'the- pleasantest-.' of ' good
mornings. -.-""' -".-
; But the Rajah's handicap; was not
permanent'- - -..'.
'"Confound. you,: seh!" he exploded..

.-.."I'm dashed if I do," objected, tke
simple-hearted Mr. Biggin. "I al

Winton laughed openly.

The Rajah, waved a sha'pely: hand
towards : the ? opposite v embankment,
where' the track layerswere 'idling. In
silent groups waiting for. some one In
authority-to' tell them what to. do.
.'':We can:do'that every day, Misteh

arrest will -cost your company 12
hours; or such a matteh the" time re-'

During this colloquy1 Virginia had
held -her ground stubbornly, "'this
though she felt intuitively r that it
would be the greatest possible relief
to the three men If she would go away.
But now a curious struggle as-of a
divided allegiance was ".holding, her.
Of course, she wanted Mr, Somerville
Darrah to win. -.Since -he was Its ad
vocate, .his cause must. he .righteous'
and just : But as against this dutiful
convincement there. was a rebellious
hope. that .Winton would.: not allow
himself to be beaten: or. rather, it. was
a feeling-, that she- would never, for
give him-if she should.- :-- -
So it was that she stood -with face
averted lest he should see' her eyes
and read the rebellious hope In .'them.'
And notwithstanding the precaution'
he both saw and 'read, and "made an
swer to' the Rajah's ultimatum accords
ingly. , . '
. "Do.-your worst Mr. Darrah. We.
have some 20 miles of steel to lay to
take us. into the' Carbonate, yards.
That steel shall go down in' spite of
anything you can do to prevent it" .'
-Virginia' waited-breathless for her
uncle's reply to this cool defiance.
Contrary' to all precedent, it was' mild-'
ly expostulatbry. ,.'-..
. "It grieves : me, seh, to find you so
determined to cou't failure." he began; J
WINTON WALKED BACK TO

Carbonate train gave him leave to go
on: "Constable, you will find trans-'

hands of the station agent "Misteh
Winton, that is your train. I wish you"
good morning and a 'pleasant journey.'.
Come,a Virginia, we shall be late to'ouh

Winton. walked back, to the station
at the ..heels -of his -captor, cudgelling
his brain to 'devise some means of get
ting word to Adams.' ' Happily the
technologlan, who had been unloading
steel at' the construction 'camp, had
been told , of the 'arrest'' and when
Winton reached the station he found
his assistant waiting for him.
But now the train was at hand and
time "had grown suddenly -precious.
Winton turned1 short uponthe marshal.

But he has real troubles- now. ' A. woman is'
after him.- . ' '..,
The. tall, lanky, .taciturn man. known'' as
'Long Pat" is to be assailed by two suits brought
before Justice Cochran in. Brooklyn. -These suits
nave been withheld from the public because the
complainant a woman, who says she -supposed
she was McCarren's common law wife, has hoped
for a settlement- She is said to' make the charge
af- cruelty .and neglect One of the "exhibits"- is
a baby, whom the woman has christened "Patrick
H. McCarren, Jr,' ...
In. the first suit -the woman alleges she was
induced to live, with ' McCarren without going
zhrough the ceremony of marriage-on the. ground ,.....
that a' verbal agreement constituted 'a common, law marriage. She asks .for
$200,000 damages.- In 'the second suit she charges McCarren with having-attacked
her, .and she asks for" $3,000 and a weekly payment of $500. and nurse
expanses, which she says McCarren offered her in settlement
She says she was introduced to McCarren as a man of '.'noble and honor
able sentiments." She fell desperately in love with him and even now, though
she asserts she has suffered untold torture, she still would -welcome ajrecon-.
