SOMMERS ADDRESS ADVOCATING GOOD ROADS Delivered to the Members of the Kentucky Good Roads Congress In LOuisville One of the prIncipal addresses at the congress of the Kentucky Good Roads association held In Louisville last week was made by Harry A Som mers of ofEltzabethtown Ky Mr Som mere has given this subject much study and ls an authority His address infavorof the good roads moment was as follows 1tis evIdent that in Kentucky we hate done those things which yre ought not to have done and left un done those things which we should have done Between our political feuds our blood feuds iIi the mountains and our tobacco feuds In Central and Western Kentucky we lave repelled both capital nnd immigration from our borders We have neglected the education of our children until illiteracy Is are 9roach to the state We have left comparatively untouched the great HARRY SOMMERS Gpod Roads Advocate wealth whIch the Creator stored In the bowels of our mountains We have shipped out our splendid Umber to be in other states In stead of manufacturing it at home We have legislated against the ran roads those great pioneers Qf prog ress and Instead ot en couraging them to extend their lines As a result ot aU thIs the census fig ures show that only three states In the Union have a smaller percentage of growth than Kentucky Is it not time to turn over a new leaf just before the Nw Year and uSe to the full ot extent the great advantages which nature has laid at our feet and which opportunity has brought to our door In my humble opinion the first and greatest step for the material develop ment of Kentucky was taken last fall at the good roads meeting when this congress was called and a committee appoInted to draft a state aid blll for public highways to be submitted to it It Is not my purpose to discuss at this time in detail the value or good OJ the cost of bad ones I merely wish to emphasize that bad roads are a heavier tax upon the people titan any reasonable which may be levied to secure roads The bad roads of cost the people more annually than all the state tax the state school tax and the county taxes com bined A government statisticIan has estimated that the bad roads in the United States cost 1250 per capita a If they only cost half that much in Kentucky the people are paying annually 12o00000 to pull through the mud Bad Roads a Perpetual Tax The cost of bad roads Is a perpet ual tax which can only be stopped by the building of good roads Good reads not only stop the tax of bad roads but they increase the value or the land more than the roads cost They are great moral factors and like the railroads are great clvillzers Tile measure framed for your consideration was drafted by a committee consisting of Senator Joe S Bo worth of the mountains JUdge James P Gregory of Louisville Mr George F PIckett of the Bluegrass and the speaker from Southern Kentucky It was rramed without regard to any particular section ot the state but upon the broad plan of hcIping every part of Kentucky and the commonwealth S 2 as a whole The committee endeavored to make It so plain and simple In a synopsis form that it could be sus ceptible or but one construction the one the framers intpnded It should have Kentucky iBa unit Outside the state a citizen Is known only as a KenItucklan whether he hails fom mountains the Bluegrass or Western Kentucky No man can rise to dls Unction in any part or this common wealth that the luster Qf his name Is not shed upon the whole state No great crime can be committed In the most remote section that the shame of It does not fall upon Kentucky We need to give force and effect to the motto of our state United We Stand Divided We Fall and everywhere from the Big Sandy to the Mississippi there should be a united and Concert ed effort to put Kentucky where she properly belongs at the forefront of the Statesa Editor Elizabethtown Kentucky News and manufactured development roads Kentucky Stat Aid Not New The questlbn of state aid is no new thing Over sixty millions have boon appropriated by the various states In the unIon to aid in the construction of metal highways Thirtytwo tates are aiding In various ways In the con struction Of roads I have the last re port of the federal highways department at Washington City which shows what the various states are doing In thIs direction Maryland has appro prIated for this year 350000 Massa chusetts 500000 Now Jersey has spent 2859735 and has appropriated for 1910 300400 In this connection I would say that New Jersey is the ltoneer state in granting aid and as a result It shows double the increase ot population of any state on the Atlan tic seaboard New YorR has appro priated 14000000 and has set aside for this year 2500000 PennsylvanIa the second state in growth In the east has appropriated 82210O0 and for the year 1910 1000000 Washington which outgrew any of the Pacific states has appropriated 620000 for this yearand so on through a long list of states therunlonevery state which has granted aid has made material progress State aid is an absolute necesslt to secure gOod roads We will never have them In Kentucky without it It means In roadswUlbthe case In Kentucky save with rare exce tIons It will not only stop the waste from Incompetency but it will also stop the graft which has been hinted atas existing In some counties Kentucky of all states In the union should provIde state aid for the rea son thqt no state has such a great difference In the wealth and poverty ot our people We have one county whose assessable wealth is over 200 000000 and u dczen where the assessment is less than 1000000 The Principle of estate aid has been reeog nized In Icentuckr throughout its entire history Our public school system iests upon It and without It half the counties could not maintain public schools The state insteadof the counties under our laws pays all the- jary claims witness claims Pauper- Idiot claims circuit judges and com monwealth attorneys salaries and many other things It Is so embodied In our laws that the state Is the unit that It Is almost fundamental Compared With School Tax- I do not believe that there Is an intelligent man within the sound of my voice who wild openly oppdse the state school tax of22 cents on the 100 because his county paid Into the state treasury more than It drew out No man has ever advocated the repeal of tljat law Any candidate for the u lslature who would make the race upon the platform of the repeal of thE schdol tax because his county did not get back as much as it paid In would be overwhelmingly defeated Why Because it Is recognled as an abso lute necessity for the rich counties of Kentucky to help to educate the children of the poor counties In order gystemIare as helpless to build good roads without state aid as they would he to maintain public schools without state Realizing the value which state aid has been to other states iu ont can object to it in Kentucky except payingtreasury than they can draw out and I do not believe that Kentucky is go- Ing to be governed by that narrow spirit Those few people who are cry Ingout against the small tax of 6 cents on the 100 from selfishness are cry Ing out before even their pocketbooks lire hurt We believe that the state supervision In the construction of roads would save In the rich counties inthethe pauper coUnties qy the building of good roads would soon take many of them out of the pauper list and that In ten years the state would be paid back a large interest on the money Invested in roads by an In creased valuation of property Two Per Cent Provision There Is a section ot the synopsis of the bill to be discussed whIch is a section that has been overlooked by many It Is the section which pro vides that no county shall receive any year more than 2 per cent or the state lund This state fund will be P proximately 500000 and 2 per cent ot It will be 10000 Any county receiving this maximum amount will be drawing Qut of the state treasury more than It pays In unless the assessed valuation of the county Is 20000000 or more In Kentucky we have less than ten counties where the property is valued at 20000000 or more and these would be the only ones which would of necessity contribute more to the road fund than they could draw from ilL All of these rich counties have large clUes In them These cities have been bunt up by the country and Itls nothing more than right and just that In turn they should help to buildup the country for the reason that in In the end they would become belie ficiarIesAllow me to refer to our public school system again Under the pro visons or the law a tax of 22i1 cents is levied on all the property or the and paid Into the state treasury stale disbursed according to the number of children in each county and the cOunty does not have to raIse a single cent to get the benefit or this fund The state aid to roads is on a much fairer proposition than this

the midwinter gathering in Louisville The tax system of a state deserves careful consIderation because the power to tax Is the power to destroy nd a tax unwisely laid may easily drain life ota community or kill Zn industry Approximately 20000 00a year are taken from the pockets 1jftJ1e people of Kentucky for the sup pott of the state county and munlcl rpa governments It Is Incomprehen 43lble that a thing which Deans so much In dollars and cents to the peo PIe of thee state should generallY have received such scant consldetation There has been no considerablO ex travagance In the expenditure of our public Tunds It is therefore time that we now stop to consider carefully whether these large sums are raised by the best possible methods whether they are raised in a way that distributes the burden fairly as between the owners of yarlous kinds of property whether the tax laws Impose the least burden consistent with the demand for revenUe arid whether they so die tribute the burden as to otter the least possible hindrance to the development of the state Where there Is compe tltion between communities such as necessarily exists under modern con ditions an unwise system

Is not n movement in favor of exemption of any kind Qf property from tCatono I knoW It NiJ been charactetized In som quarters re- entIy us an appaI for an exemntlon apLtaI from taxatton There has recently appeared In the preFs of the state Gn article from a gentleman for whon have the greatest respect which reveas a tptnl rnisunderstandLng of the spirit and purpose of this movement In this article ILls declared that the attempt to 0revise the system ot taxation In Ken Is a part of a geneLnl comblmtUon of capital to sevure exemption from tax atlcn I state deliberately and with fun consideration and having abundant portunity to know whereof I speak that no advocate of the proposed revision of 0the tax system of Kentucky has ever uggested that any class of property should be exempted from taxation The purpose ot the movement for tax revision Is not to ilecure exemption for an Class ot property On the contrary It Is for the purpose of removing onsti- tuiona1 restrictions so that the legislature have power so to vary the rnethodandthe rate that millions ot dollars ot property that now escape taCa- tlo may be made to yIthl a revenue and thus r lIce the on real estate Our present system has utterly tailed In this respect After nineteen years of trial we find It has practically broken down so far as concerns the rtisIng of revenue frdm stocks and bonds and other property of that Intangible kind which can be hidden Shall we merely keep on with the old system that has failed or shan we make ourselves free to try methods that have succeeded elSewhere In deriving larger venue from this kind of property which esCapes IIi our state no appeal for the tax dodger I faVor no exemption ef any kind of property I advocate systEm that will make every kind o property hear a fair share of the burden r rated according to Its capacIty and col letoo by a method fitted to its character Facts and Not Theories Theoretically under our present law Tin property Is exempt Practically un der our prevent law millions upon roil Mos escape Only about 5750000 of bonds for Instance were taxed In Ken tuck this years That Is manifest ab surdity Let us address ourselves to the facts Let us face the conditions as they arethe laws ot economics and of human rature as they areand not as we think they should be The system of taxation we have In ntucky Is what is known asthe Gen systemyetrs ago when property existed In simple form when most a man had would be In shape of lands and houses and live stock or a stock of goods or other things visible to the eye and easily assOSsedo In that day It served Its pur po well but that day has been long otitgToWI1 and the system vhich sut feed then Is now being generally aban Impossibleproperty which have come Into existence wIth the tremendous Industrl and commercial development of recent years We liave now manifold forms of property that were not even dreamed of at the tIme the general property tax camE into favor The development of the corpora propertyfollowingtTlbution of securities has entirely changed the complexion of affairs A system of taxation which could de riVe revenue from lands ahd houses and other kinds of visible property which are fixed nailed down and unable to escape is by no means fitted to derive a revenUe from bonds and stocks and moneys and other forms of Intangible peronal property like bonds and stocks and money and notes which can hide and will hide whenever the tax rate becomes high enough to take what the owner of the property regards as too large a proportion Qt the Income trom that property The Gap Widens corporatedevelopment bid as It Is today Year by year how ever bonds and stocks and notes and other troms ot Intangible personal property represent a larger and larger per centage of the total property of the community Year by year at the same time 6thedemtnds for revenue for public pur poses such as good roads good schools etc become heavier and the tax rate goes higher and higher At the same time the yIeld from bonds and stocks has grown smaller and smaller In earlier days railroads thought nothing for In stance of Issuing 7 per cent bonds Today any standard railroad would con elder Itself In the matter of credit if It could not float Its bonds atper ccnt or less The Inevitable result ot these changing condltlons1th the tax rategoing higher and the yield from this class ot property going lowerhas been that the owners of this kind of property will not list It for taxation when the tax rate takes anywhere from 40 to 75 percent of the Income yielded by that property Therefore more and more ot this kInd ot property has gone Into bid log and though such property forms eve year a larger part ot our total j 0 proportiongovernmentfallsestate and other forms of property that can not be hidden Injustlceandthe KentuckyThe theUniontern No state has ever succeeded In de vIsing a system of penalties and assessments or equalization that could compel standnndtheincomeHow It Works In Kentucky inKentucky quiteastheroUndertax must be put the county tax which taking the state over will aver age not tar from 50 cents This gives us a tax rate ot too high for many kinds of property and the process ot hiding wayNor On top or this state tax of cents and the county tax localtax185 and sometimes higher and with every 5 or 10 cents added to the rate byhidingtax rate In cities and towns of first second third fourth and fifth classes In Kentucky Is about 222 This amounts to about 55 per cent of the return from amountstofrom any per cent Investment and It you apply lit to a 3 per cent investment nearlvthe wildest extremest would propose an Income tax of 45 to 75 Per cent Yet that Is what we try to collect from some classes ot property It Is too much to expect of weak human na ureoIt Is a stupid defiance of economic lass as well AS Pt the law ot human nature When anY tax takes more than per cent of the Income from any class ot property beginThetaken by a tax the greater incentive to evasion undervaluation and perjury In order to escape the burden until you iach a point where to pile further taxes on a tax rate already high does not yield a proportonate Increase ot revenue We Have Tried 11 Nineteen Years We fixed this system In the new con stltutlop nineteen yearsago Our Inten were goodoVe acted with the best Unfortunatelyhoweversystem was being abandoned elsewhere It Is not yielding sutlicient revenue for a progressive state It hampers Industries It bUrdens the poor m2n It drives capI- tal out or the state or into forms of In vestment that do not promote buslnels activity and do not furnish employment to labor and do not develop the resources of the stateoIIt Is rich man only or chiefly who has a cause of complaint against the present tax The rich man can take care of himself and does take care of him eif He understands the tax laws or does hot uqderrtand them himself he is able to employ the best legal counsel to tell him how to so arrange his invest ments as to be In a sate position when the assessment time rolls around If all else fails he can moe out of the state He Is smart enough to put the greater part of his estate In forms of proper that he can easily conceal from the assessor The poor man can not do these thlngsoIf he has been fortunate and thrifty enough to save anything at all- jenerally It first takes the form of n savings account and then of a home He knows little or nothing ot stocks and bondsoIf ehas n saYings account he must conceal It from thE assessor or give up practically the whole ot Its yelld In taxesoIt he has not saver enough for a home he still pays a tax on real estate for every man who lives under a roof hangetora rent recr lpt from the landlord There Is no escaping It And if the poor man In Kentucky has tried to bu a home and has made a partial pnYJT1ent on It hI finds that the notes representing his deferred payments arE aish taxed and the lender may be trusted to arrange matters zo that the owner of the property wii stand the burdEn of the tax on thoenotes practically making him pay double tax to the extent ot hlsunpald purchase money Ve Need Outside CapItal It has not been long since I henr the very startling statement made by a speaker at a public gathering that we- do not need foreign capital In KentuCky I un quite sure no editor of a Ken tucky newspaper will agree to this PractlcaU allot the development of bastakeneign capitaL It must haVe been 1Ve did not have the capital ourselves If We do not get It from the outside We wpuid not haVe It at aU The development now going on In Eastern Kentucky II almOst whpUy by meatlOf oubiide capital We need this out slda capital We want It to come We Wont it to stand for Its fair shire of the burden of our expenses It Is not proposed to exempt Jt from taxation In order to get It but It Is Proposed to adjust the taxes upen every form of capi tal that comes with a reasOnable view to the profit It expects to yield Its own ers and also with art eye out for the competition between one State and another In the advantages offered tar such Investments Some Absurd Results Let me point out a few of the aburdl ties practice In enforcing the general- property tax tit Kentucky Let us sup pOle a man with t thousand dollars n a savings account In LouisVille At the prlvalllng rate ot Interest three per thirtydol1nrs2G65 of thlf 3000 In taxes I do nat know what the tax rate now Is In Pa dumb Several years ago It was 110 on the 10000 If this man had his thou sand dollars deposited In a Paducah bank nt three per cent Interest he would have reall edJOO a year from his n vestment bud he would have paid 3100 In tnxe paying n penalty for being thrifty In view o this it Is no won del that out ot more than of savings the United States there are InKcntuckYnmade that little corner of our country the great reservoir of savings funds the hoarded doiItrz ot people of small means which In the aggregate make such an enormous sum that every great dnter- prise with a dcst rvlng bond Issue to float looks first to the Now England market Banks Protect Themselve It Is often stated by people who have not Investigated this movement for n revision ot the tax systCm that It orig rates largely in the desire of banks to escape from taxation Let no One con cern himself about

In Kentucky Under the laW of this State the amount that can be loaned by a bank to any one Indlvhl ual or firm or corporation Is limited to a fixed percentage ot the capital and thereforeof banks Is

be cautious It should preferably be assisted by a tax commission gathering In formation for the Legislature to act Upon It should be along a consistent line designed to end In a system under which the

property for County purposes and for County purposes only nil property being taxed at some tate for some purpose and for one purpose qnly that rate being as fairly 01 possible adjusted to the normal income from property of that class and collected by the method that will yield the largest re turns That Is the proposition In a nutshell It Is not theory It la being successfully done Fourteen tates have now so shaped their constitutions that they may do It And at tvery Step of the progress from the old method to the new work would be In the hands of th chosen representatives of the people The Goal To Be Reached The ormulatlng or the new system and the working out of its details shou be done most cauUousb but always with a view to finally reaching a point where the State would raise ItS

according to Its capacity for standing a tax proportionate to tine Income It yields we remove the incentive which our present system furnishes to undervaluation end evasion and per jury m not poInting

that promises Ideal unlformlt In thoory but In practice has resulted In the grossest unfairness to aU visible forms of property ahd the practical cx- ompIon of mlllionso It means putting In tHe

Gaaranteed1 r i WARNING TO ALL PARENTS The Tendency of some Mothers and Fathers toShowPff Their Children Usually Ruins Them When parents are the proud posS sessoraof a very bright and clever child there le always the risk that they may make ot their offspring a seltconscous and priggish little per son It Is natural enough that Tommy or Katie as the Case may be should be Inclined to show off when their attainments are made the subject of conversation It is extremely bad for children converting them into self conscious little men and women In stead ot just natural rough and tum ble boys and girls with a healthy liking for marbles or dolls says Wom ans Ute Many a child has been ut terly ruined In disposition by a par ents openly shown pride and the ten dency to bring children forward un duty and tomake them the center of attraction before visitors is all too sadly on the increase It is of course very hard for the mother and father of a 1right child to realize that the small genius is bound to be less Interesting to other peoples than to themselves that friends do not visit them for the sole pleasure of hearing Katie recite or Tommy sing the latest popular song In his shrill treble It may be amusing for a while but show off children are apt later on to show scant liking for the more solid attainments with the result that their slower duller brothers and sisters leave them behind on the ladder of fame Cultivate a chUds talents by all means but do not parade them 1Ii public before him It may mean the roin of a possibly fine career WOULD ABOLISH PUBLIC ZOO Restlessness or

staggered The people at the surrounding tables after glancing curiously in my direction looked away again I got my hat and went out in a very uncomfortable frame of mind That he would inform the police at once it ht fthe knew I never doubted un lees Possibly she would give a day or twos grace in the hope that I would change my mind I revIewed the sltuatlonas I waited far a car Two passed me going in the opposite direction and on tJ e first one I saw Bronson his hat over his eyes his arms folded looking moodily ahead Was it imagination orr was the small man huddled in the corner ef the rear seat Hotchkiss myselfGnIliing The man was aU the world like a terrier ever on the Kent and scouring about in every direction I found McKnIght at the Incubator with his coat off working wIth enth4- Ium nd a manicure file cver the horn of his auto Its the worst horn I ever ran across he groaned without looking up as I came InuThe blanket blank thing wont blow He punched it savagely finally ellc Sting a faint throaty croak Sounds like croup i suggested My sisterinlaw uses camphor and goose grease for it or how about a spice poultice But McKnight never sees any jokes but his own He flung the horn chat tering Into a corner and collapsed sulkily into a chair Now I said if youre through manicuring that horn Ill tell you about my talk with the lady In black Whats wrong asked McKnight languidly Police watching her too Not exactly The fact is Rich theres the mIschief to pay Stogie came ln bringing a few addl Lions to our comfort When he went out I told my story You must remember I salduthat I had seen this woman before the morning of the wreck She was buy Ing her Pullman ticket when I did Then the next morning when the mur der was discovered she grew hysterical and I gave her some whisky The third and last time I saw her Until tonight was when she crouched be aide the road after the wreck McKnight slid down in his chair until his weight rested on the small ot hIs back and put his fqt on the big reading tableij Its rather a facer lie said Its really too good a situation for a corn monplace lawyer It ought to be dramatized You cant agree of course and by refusing you run the chance of jail at least and of having AlIson brought Into publicity which Is out ot the question You say she was Oat the Pullman window when you were 1 Yes I bought her ticket for her Gave her lower eleven And you took ten Lower ten- McKnight straightened up and looked at meaThen she thought you were In lower ten I suppOse she did if she thought at all But listen man McKnight was growing excited What do you figure out ot this The Conway Woman knows you have taken the notes to Pittsburg The prQbablUUes are that she follows you there on the chance of an opportunity to get them either for Bronson or herself Nothing doing durIng the trip over or during the day in Pittsburg but she learns the number or your berth as you buy it at the Pullman ticket office in PlttSburg and she thinks she her chalice ho one could have that that drunken fellow 4sees have crawled into your berth I figure It out thIs way She wanted those notes desperatelydoeS stilinnt torBronson but to hold over r The

breathin8 shows he Is aJleep DIdnt you say he snored He did 1 affirmed But I tell you SheCrepesness finally discovering the wall t under the pillow Cant you see It your self He was leaning forward excitedly and I could almost see the grewsome tragedy he was depicting She draws out the wallet Then perhaps she remembers the alligator bag and oon the possibility that the notes are there instead of tn the pocketbook she gropes around for ItSUddenly the man itw9kes and clutch es at the nearest object perhaps her neck chain which breaks It Is all in silence the man Is still stupidly drunk But he holds her in a tight grip Then the tragedy She must get away in a the car will be aroused Such a woman on such an errand does not go without some sort ot a weapon in this case isnoiselessWith a quick thrusts ies a big woman and a bold oneshe strikes Possibly Hotchklssls right about the lefthand blow Harrington may have held her right hand oro perhaps she held the dirk is her left hand as she groped with her right Then as the man falls back and his grasp relaxes she straightens and attempts to get away The swaying of the car throws her almost into your berth and trem bling with terror she crouches behind the curtains of lower ten until every thing Is still Then she goes noise lessly back to her berth I nodded It seems to fit partly at least I said In the morning when she found that the crime had been not only fruit less but that she lad searched the wrong berth and killed the wrong man when she saw me emerge un hurt just as she was bracing herself for the discovery of my dead body then she went Into hysterics You remember I gave her some whisky It really seems a tenable theory But like the Sullivan theory there are one or two things that dont agree with the rest For one thing how did the remainder ot that chain get Into Alison Westspossesslon She may have picked it upon the floor Well admit tat I said and Im sure I hope so Then how did the murdered mans pocketbook get into the sealskin bag And the dirk how account for that and the blood stains Now whats the use asked Mc Knight aggrievedliof my building up beautiful trts for you to pull down Well take It to Hotchklss Maybe he can tell trom the blood staIns If the murderers finger nails were square or pointed Hotchkiss no fool I saId warm ly Under all his theorIes theres a good hard layer of common sense And we must remember Rich that neither of our theories includes the woman at Doctor Van Kirks hospital that the charming picture you have just drawn does not account for AU son Wests connection with the case or for the bits of telegram in the Sul liven fellows pajamas pocket You are like the man who put the clock together youve got half of the works leftover Oh go home said McKnIght disgustedly Im no Edgar Al1n Poe Whats the um ot coming here and asking me things if youre so partJcu far With one of his quick changes of mood he picked up his guitar Listen to saIdoIt Is a Hawaiian song about a fat lady oh ignorant one and how she tell oft her mule But for all the lightness or the words the voice that followed me down the staIrs was anything but cheery There wsa a Kanaka In Balu did dwell Who had for bls daughter a monstrous fat girl he sang In a clear tenor I panned on the lower floor and listened He had stopped singing as as he had begun rCHAPTER XXII At the Boarding House I had not been home for 36 hours since the morning of the pr lng day Johnson was not In sight d I let myself In quietly with my latchkey It was almost midnight and I had hardly settled myself In the library when the ben rang and Irassurprised to find Hotchkiss mttof breath In the vestibule Why come In Mr Hotchkiss I said I thought you were going home to go to bed So r was so I was He dropped into a chair beside my readIng lamp and mopped his face And here It Is almost midnight and Im wider awake than ever Ive seen Sullivan Mr BlakeleyI You have I have he said Impressively atYou were following Bronson eight oclock Was that when It happened Something of the sort When I left you at the door Of the restaurant I turned and almost ran Into a plainclothesman from the central office I know him pretty well once or twice he has taken me with him on interest lug bits of work He knows my hobby You know him too probably It was the man Arnold the detective whom the states attorney has had watching Bronson Johnson being otherwise occupied I had asked for Arnold myself I nodded Wenhe stopped me at once said hed been on the fellows tracks since early morning and had had no time for luncheon Bronson It seems isnt eating much these days I at once jotted down the fact because It ar gued that he was being bothetedby the man with the notes It might point to other things I suggested Indigestion you know Hotchkiss Ignored me Well Arnold bad some reaSon for thiakin that Dronson would try to give him the slip that night so he asked me to stay around the private entrance there while he ran across the street and get something to eat It seemed a fair presumption that as he had gone there with lJ lady they would dine lei surely and Arnold would have plenty of time to get back What about your own dinner I asked curiously Sir he said pompously I have given you a wrong estimate ot Wilson Budd Hotchkiss If you think that questlonor dinner would even obtrude Itself on his mind at such a time as this He waS a frail little man and tonight he looked pale with heat and overexertion Bid you have any luncheon I asked f Objectei He was somewhat embarrassed at that Ireally Mr Blakeley the events of the day were so engrossing Well I raid Im not goIng to see you drop on they floor from exhauJlo- tlon Just watt a minute I went baCk to the pantry only to be confronted with rows of locked DqWJistalrsInfound twO unattractive looking cold cbops some dry bread and a piece of cake wrapped in a napkin and from its surreptitious and generally hang dog appearance destined for the coach man in the stable at the rear Trays there were noneeverythlng but the chairs and tables seemed under lack napkinknifeThe luncheon was not attractive In appearance but Hotchkiss ate his cold chops and gnawed at his crusts as though he had been famished while lie told his story I had been there only a few thin utes he said with a chop Inone hand and the cake In the other when Bronson rushed out and cut across the street Hes tall man Mr Blake ley and I had hard work keeping close It was a relief when he jumped on a passing car although being well behind it was a hard run for me to catch him He lad left the lady once on the car we simply rode from one end of the line to the other and back again I suppose he was passing the time for he looked at hie watch now and then and when I did once get a look at his face tt made meeruncomtortabl He could have crushed me like a fly sir I had brought Mr Hotchkiss a glass of wine and he was lookIng better He stopped to finIsh It declining with a wave of hIs hand to have It remled and continued About nine oclock or a little ater Wasltingtonresidence streets there turned to his left a sqUare or two and rang a bell He had been admitted when I got therp but I guessed from the appear alice of the place that it was a board Ing house I waited a few minutes and rang the bell When a maid answered it I asked for Mr Sullivan or course there was no Mr Sullivan there I said I was sorry that the man J was looking for was a new boatderr She was sure there was no suck boarder in the house the only new arrival was a man on the third floor she thought his name was Stuart iliaggq up Sond see She wanted to show me up but I said It was unnecessary So after tell Ing melt was the bedroom and Hitting room on the third floor front I went tip I met a couple of men on the stairs but neither of them paid eil y attention iii me A boarding house is the lest place In the world to enter eyre not always 80 easy ip leave I put In to his evident irritI tion When I got to the third story l took out a bunch of keys and posted myself by a door near the ones tilt girl had IndIcated I could hear voices In one ot the front rooms but could not understand what they said There was no violent dispute but n steady hum Then Bronson jerked the door open If he had stepped into llttlo8Iihe spoke before he came out Youre acting like a maniac hl said You know I can get tbreq things some way Im not going threaten you It Isnt necessary To know ale It would be no use thA other mM said r tell you I hnent seen hi notes for ten days But you will Bronson said Jor- ngely Youre standTg
