He got to his feet just as Big Bill, his eyes and brain still fogged with sleep, sat up and began to take notice of the disturbance. "Don't move," warned nolt sharply. "Better throw your hands up. No monkey business, do you hear? I'd as lief blow a hole through you as not." Big Bill turned bitterly to Elliot. "So you were faking all the time, young fellow. We save your life and you round on us. You're a pretty slick " proposition as a "And that ain't all," chirped up Holt blithely. "Let me introduce our friend to you, Mr. Big Bill Macy. This is Gordon Elliot, the land agent appointed to look over the Kamatlah claims. Selfrldge gave you lads this penitentiary job so as I wouldn't meet Elliot when he reached the camp. If he hadn't been so darned anxious about it, our young friend would have died here on the divide.

If Elliot had advertised for a year he could not have found a man who knew more of Colby Macdonald's past than Gideon Holt. The old man had worked a claim on Frenchman creek with him and had by sharp practice so at least he had come to believe been lawed out of his rights by the shrewd Scotsman. For seventeen years he had nursed a grudge against Macdonald, and he was never tired of talking about him. One story in particular interested Gordon. "There was Farrell O'Neill. He was a good fellow, Farrell was, but he had just one weakness. There was times when he liked the bottle too well. He'd let it alone for months and then just lap the stuff up. It was the time of the stampede to Bonanza creek. Well, the news of the strike on Bonanza reached Dawson and we all burnt up the trail to get to the new ground first. O'Neill was ono of the first. He got in about twenty below Discovery, if I remember. Mac wasn't in Dawson, but he got there next mo'nin' and heard the news. He lit out for Bonanza pronto." The old miner stopped, took a chew of tobacco, and looked down into the valley far below where Kamatlah could just be seen, a little huddle of huts. "Well?" asked Elliot. It was occasionally necessary to prompt Holt when he paused for his dramatic effects.

Even without Holt at his side he would probably have unearthed the truth about the Kamatlah situation. But with the little miner by his side to tell him the facts, he found his task an easy one. Selfridge followed orders and let him talk with the men freely. All of them had been drilled till they knew their story like parrots. They were suspicious of the approaches of El- wheel.

He sends a check down once a quarter to the trader here for her and the kid." But young Elliot was not thinking about Meteetse. His mind's eye saw another picture the girl at Kusiak, listening spellbound to the tales of a man whose actions translated romance into life for her, a girl swept from the quiet backwaters of an Irish village to this land of the midnight sun with Its amazing contrasts. And all the way up on the boat she continued to fill his mind. The slowness of the steamer fretted him. Sometimes the jealousy in his heart flamed up like a prairie fire when it comes to a brush heap. The outrage of It set him blazing with indignation. It was no less than a conspiracy. What could an innocent young girl like Sheba know of such a man as Colby Macdonald? Her imagination conceived, no doubt, an idealized vision of him. But the real man was clear outside her ken.

"Yes. ne offered to board me," answered the young man blandly. "But I didn't know he was here seems to me I had heard somewhere that he was away. Seems to me I heard he went prospecting." "He did. Up Wild Goose creek, with Big Bill Macy and two other men. But I asked him to come back with me and he did." Feebly Wally groped for the clue without finding it. Had Big Bill sold him out? And how had Elliot got into touch with him? "Just so, Mr. Elliot. But really, you know, Howland can make you a great deal more comfortable than Holt. His wife is a famous cook.

'r ADAIR COUNTY NE "HUNS" SCORNED LAW OF NATIONS Use of Civilians as Hostages and for Screens Part of Devilish System. FIRST MADE USE OF IN 1870 At That Time It Was Condemned by the Civilized World, but the German Military Leaders Have Never Abandoned It. Ample proof that the march of the German armies through Belgium teas marked by massacres and cruelties almost beyond belief is given in a document made public by the committee on public information, from which the following is taken: The massacres in Belgium and northern France were a part of the German system of frightfulness. Another feature of this system was tbe use of civilians as hostages and for screens. In discussing the use of hostages the German War Book (Kriegsbrauch im Landkriege) says: "By hostages are understood those persons who, as security or ball for the fulfillment of treaties, promises, or other claims, are taken or detained by the opposing state or Its army. Their provision has been less usual in recent wars, as a result of which some professors of the law of nations have wrongly decided that the taking of hostages has disappeared from the practice of civilized nations. . . . "A new application of 'hostage right was practiced by the German staff In the war of 1870, when it compelled leading citizens from French towns nnd villages to accompany trains and locomotives In order to protect the railway communications which were threatened by the people. Since the lives of peaceable Inhabitants were, without any fault on their part, thereby exposed to grave danger, every writer outside Germany has stigmatized this measure as contrary to the law of nations nnd as unjustified towards the Inhabitants of the country." Clung to Frightfulness. Although their deeds in the Franco-Prussia-n war had leen universally condemned, as they themselves admitted, the leaders did not intend to abandon such a useful measure of e frightfulness. In L'Interprete the forms were provided for such acts In the next war. Both in Belgium and In France the Germans have constantly used hostages. The evidence Is contained In the proclamations of the governing authorities and also in the diaries of the German soldiers. A few examples from these will illustrate the system which was employed. , A specimen of the arbitrariness and cruelty Is furnished by the proclamation of Major DIeckmann, from which the following sections are presented: "After 9 a. m. on the 7th September, I will permit the houses in Grivegnee, and to be Inhabited by the persons who lived In them formerly, as long as these persons are not forbidden to frequent these localities by official prohibition. Prominent People Hostages. "In order to be sure that the permit will not be abused, y and the burgomasters of Grivegnee must immediately preof pare lists of prominent persons who will be held as hostages for 24 hours each at Fort Fleron. September G, 1914, for the first time (the period of detention shall be) from C p. m. until September 7 at midday. "The life of these hostages depends on the population of the communes remaining quiet under all circumstances. "During the night it is severely forbidden to show any luminous signals. .Bicycles are permitted only between 7 a. m. and 5 p. m. (German time). "From the list which is submitted to s me I shall designate prominent hostages from noon who shall be iOf one day until the following midday. jlf the substitute is not there in due 'time, the hostage must remain another 24 hours at the fort. After these .24 hours the hostage will incur the ipenalty of death, if the substitute fails jto appear. "Priests, burgomasters, and the oth-e- r members of the council are to be !taken first as hostages. "I insist that all civilians who move jabout In my district . . . show jtheir respect to the German officers by taking off their hats, or lifting their hands to their heads in military salute. In case of doubt, every German sol- ;dier must be saluted. Anyone who n idoes not do this must expect the military to make themselves .rejected by every means." Hold Small Nations Have No Rights. "The fate that Belgium has called down upon herself is hard for the but not too hard for this structure (Staatsgebilde), for jthe destinies of the immortal great stand so high that they cannot but have the right, in case of need, to stride over existence that cannot defend themselves, but live, as parasites, npon the rivalries of the great" Prof. jELOncken, in Suddeutsche Monatsheft, (South German Monthly.)

Mill-tairBeyne-Heusay, BoIs-de-Bre- This is an invitation to a service m memory of 60 men and women from one parish, of whom all but two were killed by the Germans in the massacre of August 5 and 6, 1914. The closing sentences are: "Gentle Heart of Mary, be my refuge. "Our Lady ofXourdes, pray for us. "St Joseph, patron of Belgian, pray for us. "St. Ilardelin, patron of the parish, pray for us. "Sainte Barbe, patroness of kindly death, pray for us." After reading such ghastly accounts, many of them written by German eyewitnesses, and knowing that similar tales were published widely in the German newspapers, it is difficult to read with patience such words as these: "The German army (in which I of course Include the navy) .is today the greatest institute for moral education in the world." "The German soldiers alone are thoroughly disciplined, and have never so much as hurt a hair of a single innocent human being." Houston Stewart Chamberlain, in Kriegsaufsdtze, "War Essays," 1914. "We see everywhere how our soldiers respect the sacred defenseless-nes- s of woman and child." Prof. G. Roethe, in Deutsche Reden in Schwerer Zeit, "German Speeches in Difficult Days." Hostages' Lives Hung by Thread. "In order to insure sufficiently the safety of our troops and the tranquility of the population of Reims, the persons mentioned have been seized as hostages by the commander of the German army. These hostages will be shot if there is the least disorder. On the other hand, if the town remains perfectly calm and quiet these hostages and Inhabitants will be placed under the protection of the German army. WRITTEN RECORD OF ATROCITIES Diaries of German Soldiers Tell of Murder and Pillage in Belgian Cities. CALLED "DISGRACE TO ARMY" No Discrimination Made Between Innocent and Guilty Infants Shot In Dead Mothers' Arms Tes- timony of Brand Whitlock. Yery many German soldiers who have been taken prisoner had kept diaries, and these have been confiscated by the captors. Many have been- published, frequently with facsimile reproductions to guarantee their authenticity. The following extracts, with the testimony of Brand Whitlock, arc made public by the committee on public information at Washington: "Aug. 23. . . . Our men came back and said that at the point where the valley joined the Meuse we could .not get any further, as the villagers were shooting at us from every house. We shot the whole lot 1G of them. They were drawn up in three ranks; the same shot did for three at a time. . . . The men had already shown their brutal instincts; . . . "The sight of the bodies of all the inhabitants who had been shot was indescribable. Every house in the whole village was destroyed. We dragged the villagers one after another out of the most unlikely corners. The men were shot as well as the women and children who were in the convent, since shots had been fired from the convent windows; and we burnt it afterwards. "The inhabitants might have escaped the penalty by handing over the guilty and paying 15,000 francs. "The inhabitants fired on our men again. The division took drastic steps to stop this, the villages being burnt and the inhabitants being shot. The pretty little village of Gue d'Ossus, however, was apparently set on fire without cause. A cyclist fell off his machine and his rifle went off. He immediately said he had been shot at. All the inhabitants were burnt in the houses. I hope there will be no more such horrors. "Disgrace to Our Army." "At Leppe apparently 200 men were shot. There must have been some Innocent men among them. In future we shall have to hold an inquiry as to their guilt instead of shooting them. THE GENERAL COMMANDING. "Reims, 12th September, 1914." Beneath this proclamation were posted the names of 81 hostages nnd a statement that others had also been seized as liostages. The lives of all these men depended in reality upon the interpretation which the German militnry authorities might give to in the proclamation. Hugh Gibson, in a Journal from our Legation in Belgium, page 1S4, explains what was likely to happen : "Another thing is, that on entering a town, they hold the burgomaster, the procureur du rol, and other authorities as hostages to insure good behavior by the population. Of course, the hoodlum class would like nothing better than to see their natural enemies, the defenders of law nnd order, ignomini-ousl- y shot, and they do not restrain themselves a bit on account of the there the elastic phrase, "the least disorder," above-mention- ed Eeyne-Heusa- above-mention- ed per-'son- , Ger-;ma- po-JJtic- nl na-jtio- ns hostages." Diary of Bombardier Wetzel. "Aug. 8th. First fight and set fire to several villages. "Aug. 9th. Returned to old quarters; there we searched all the houses and shot the mayor and shot one man down from tbe chimney pot, and then we again set fire to the village. "On the 18th August Letalle (?) captured 10 men with three priests because they have shot down from the church tower. They were brought Into the village of Ste. Marie. "Oct 5th. We were In quarters in the evening at Willekamm. Lieutenant Radfels was quartered in the mayor's house and there had two prisoners (tied together) on a short whip, and in case anything happened they were to be killed. "Oct 11th. We had no fight, but we caught about 20 men and shot them. (From the dairy of Bombardier Wetzel, n Second Mounted Battery, First Field Artillery, Regiment No. 11.)" The Germans also found it convenient on many occasions to secure civilians, both men and women, who could be forced to march or stand in front of the troops, so that the countrymen of the civilians would be compelled first to kill their own people if they resisted the Germans. This usage Is Illustrated in the following: Letter of Lieutenant Eberlein. "October 7, 1914. "But we arrested three other civilians, and then I had a brilliant idea. We gave them chairs, and we then ordered them to go and sit out in the middle of the street On their part, pitiful entreaties ; on ours, a few blows from the butt end of the rifle. Little by little one becomes terribly callous at this business. At last they were all seated outside in the street. I do not know what anguished prayers they may have said but I noticed that their hands were convulsively clasped the whole time. I pitied these fellows, but the method was Immediately effective. "The flank fire from the houses quickly diminished, so that we were able to occupy the opposite house and thus to dominate the principal street. Every living being who showed himself in the street was shot. The artillery on its side had done good work all this time, and when, toward seven o'clock In the evening, the brigade advanced to the assault to relieve us I was in a position to report that Saint Dif had been cleared of the enemy. "Later on I learned that the regiment of reserve which entered Saint Die further to the north had tried the same experiment The four civilians whom they had compelled in the same way to sit out in the street were killed by French bullets. I myself saw them lying in the middle of the street near the hospital. "A. EBERLEIN, Kur-hessia- "In the evening Maubert-Fontaine. we marched to having our meal the alarm was sounded everyone Is very jumpy. "September 3. Still at Rethel, on guard over prisoners. . . . The houses are charming inside. The middle class in France has magnificent furniture. We found stylish pieces everywhere and beautiful silk, bu in what a state . . . Good God' . . . Every bit of furniture broken, mirrors smashed. The Vandals themselves could not have done more damage. This place is a disgrace to our army. The inhabitants who lied could not have expected, of course, that all their goods would have been left intact after so many troops had passed. But the column commanders are responsible for the greater part of the damage, as they could have prevented the looting and destruction. The damage amounts to millions of marks; even the safes have been attacked. "In a solicitor's house, in which, as luck would have it, all was in excellent taste, including a collection of old lace and Eastern works of art, everything was smashed to bits. "I could not resist taking a little memento myself here and there. . . . One house was particularly elegant, everything in the best taste. The hall was of light oak; I found a splendid raincoat under the staircase and a camera for Felix." (From the diary of an officer in the One Hundred Sevpnty-eight- h regiment, Twelfth Saxon corps.) Just as we were persons who were shot are: Mr. mayor of Dinant; Sasserath, first alderman; Nimmer, aged seventy: Consul for the Argentine Republic Victor Poncelet, who was executed in the presence of his wife and seven children; Wasseige and his two sons; Messrs. Gustave and Leon Nicaise, two very old men; Jules Monin and others all shot in the cellar of their brewery; Mr. Camille Pistte and son, aged seventeen; Phlllippart Piedfort, his wife and daughter; Miss Marsig-ny- . During the execution of about forty inhabitants of Dinant the Germans placed before the condemned their wives and children. It is thus that Madam Albin who had just given birth to a child, three days previously, was brought on a mattress by German soldiers to witness the execution of her husband; her cries and supplications were so pressing that her husband's life was spared." "On the 2Gth of August German soldiers entered various streets (of and ordered the inhabitants of the houses to proceed to the Place de la Station, where the bodies of nearly a dozen assassinated persons were lying. Women and children were separated from the men and forced to remain on the Place de la Station during the whole day. They had to witness the execution of many of their fellow citizens, who were for the most part shot at the side of the square, near the house of Mr. Ilemaide. The women and children, after having remained on the square for more than 15 hours, were allowed to depart. The Gardes Civiques of Louvain were also taken prisoners and sent to Germany, to the camp of Munster, where they were held for several weeks. "On Thursday, August 27, order was given to the inhabitants to leave Louvain because the city was to be bombarded. Old men, women, children, the sick, priests, nuns, were driven on the roads like cattle. More than of the inhabitants were driven as far as Tirlemont, nearly 12 miles from Louvain. Infants Shot in Mothers' Arms. "One of the most sorely tried communities was that of the little village of Taniines, down in what is known as the Borinage, the coal fields near Charleroi. Tamines is a mining village in the Sambre; it is a collection of small cottages sheltering about inhabitants, mostly all poor laborers. "The little graveyard in which the church stands bears Its mute testimony to the horror of the event. There e graves, each are hundreds of with its small wooden cross and its bit of flowers ; the crosses are so closely huddled that there is scarcely room to walk between them. The crosses are alike and all bear the same date, the sinister date of August 22, 1914." "But whether their hands were cut off or not, whether they were impaled on bayonets or not, children were shot down, by military order, in cold blood. In the awful crime of the Rock of Bayard, there overlooking the Meuse below Dinant, infants in their mothers' arms were shot down without mercy. The deed, never surpassed in cruelty by any band of savages, is described by the bishop of Namur himself: " 'One scene surpasses in horror all others; it is the fusillade of the Rocher Bayard near Dinant. It appears to have been ordered by Colonel Meister. This fusillade made many victims among the nearby parishes, especially those of des Rivages and NefTe. It caused the death of nearly 90 persons, without distinction of age or sex. Among the victims were babies in arms, boys and girls, fathers and mothers of families, even old De-foi- n, Lou-vain) EVERYTHING IN Asphalt, Gravel, Rubber, Galvanized and Painted.

" 'It was there that 12 children under the age of six perished from the fire of the executioners, six of them as they lay in their mothers' arms: "'The child Fievet, three weeks old. "'Maurice Betems, eleven months old. But his horror apparently was not shared by the German commander in chief, as is evident from the following: "Order. "To the People of Liege. "The population of Andenne, after making a display of peaceful intentions toward our troops, attacked them in the most treacherous manner. With my authorization, the general commanding these troops has reduced the town to ashes and has had 110 persons shot.

" . Mr. Hugh Gibson, the secretary of our legation in Belgium, visited Louvain during its systematic destruction by the Germans. In "A Journal From Our Legation in Belgium," New York, 1917, pages he relates what the German officers told him : "It was a story of clearing out civilians from a large part of the town, a systematic routing out of men from cellars and garrets, wholesale shoot-- ' ings, the generous use of machine guns, and the free application of the torch the whole story enough to make one see red. And for our guidance it was impressed on us that this would make people respect Germany and think twice about resisting her." German pastors and professors far from the excitement of the firing have defended this policy of frightfulness, e. g.: "We are not only compelled to accept the war that is forced upon us . . . but are even compelled to carry on this war with a cruelty, a ruthless-nesan employment of every imaginable device, unknown In any previous war."

Wednesday. Learning that he would soon be called in the draft he enlisted in the United States Navy, Bender's story of his adventures since leaving Louisville in 1914 was a continuous succession- of thrills. He has made hundreds of trips across the English channel carrying troops to France and engaged in fights with German scores of submarines'. Several times according to the young seaman he saw passen ger ships torpedoed near his own ship and was forced to witness women and children go down without aid becausp of the stringest Admiralty orders which prohibit any ve3sel except of the patrol force, assisting a sinking ship. When a ship is torpedoed he said that all other merchant ships in the vicinity flee at full speed from the scene to take no chances on being hit themselves. Bender described the convey system in use by the British and reported it as being very successful. He said that merchant ships travel in fleets of thirty or more accompanied by about twenty-fivtorpedo boats. The convey travels at medium speed while the torpedo boats going at high speed make wide circles arounp them in a continuous procession. Bender related how his ship once narrowly escaped destruction by a large German sub after a running fight lasting two hours. The German sub was five miles away when the attack began, using her 4.7 guns stationed before and after. Bender was at the wheel during the fight and was showered with splinters from numerous hits but escaped serious injury. A torpedo boat finally hove into sight and drove the Bub off before she could draw near enough, to inflict serious damage. Although he has been in the War Zone three years, Bender is anxious to return as soon as possible aboard an American destroyer.
