THE DAILY FREE PRESS YODNa r MMENft .T«ry naluraily~lils enemies "attacked fret what seemed to- them his most "iralnerable spot, ' "Why did he change *ls name?" , "Why did :he need..aii •lias?" "What foul "deed 'had he done «nfl essayed to cover up?" These were •tfce questions hurled broadcast; these the ones they_fain..would:aiiswer "In- Tfstigators" were dispatched to Mary- Jaii!?. All went well^-or 111 for them, because nothing but good could be found of him—until his nineteenth Tear.' Then they encountered : a .blank•wall. There were five years unaceount- «d for. His family was.unimpeachable.^ The Daniels of Roanoke county were of "the South's first-people. The Fitz-. randolphs of England and Virginia had distinguished themselves on. more than several occasions. Plainly, there was no.thing here^for their purpose. . But -those five y'Rrrs! . When.they had given up all hope.of - ever sounding it and were searching In despair for a. successful plummet, Daniel very deliberately laid bare on the first page-of his newspaper everything It contained. - -With genial candor, 'and not without relish, he nar^ rated his five, years in trampdom.; In justice to himself,-in justice to hls> . party, he felt he couid do no less. Between the ages of .nineteen and tweri- . ty-four his had been an :, and the story .thereof -was. riot dull. The bomb exploded with a -deafening crash, an'd with, a howl and a -flhriek his foes were upon him. Rending the disclosure as a pack of wolves, •they clawed It gnashed it, made it ugly and held It .up greedily to the public jgaze. And then when the rumble and bombast had died away, when the blood and smoke had passed, Hugh Daniel Fltzrandolph stood before the populace —a hero. The city which reveres the memory of a man who, starting as a clerk, later saddled with debts, hewed his way through adversity and became the "Merchant Prince" of the world, of another who straggled from a •' butcher's apprenticeship at two dollars a week to the pinnacle of the Union Stock Yards, of scores of others of. ignoble beginnings and vast achievements—such a city was not slow to erect a pedestal for one who had once been a vagabond and was DOW become a multi-millionaire candidate for the highest honor the city of his adoption could pay him. Thus, for the hour, Daniel had' become an idol of the people. • Danielrnshed his.campaign onward with a tireless zeal that outdistanced his rivals and lost them to view. Here. as in the wheat pit. his endurance and energy were a marvel to till who kuew Uea.. EoliincTiea In an obscure'llttle restaurant! and-went motoring. ^ . Returning, however, he left tnte car •at Tweutj^fpurth -street continued afoot- toward town," his. raincoat collar turned up, his soft hat down, and wandered aimlessly about, taking studious care to shun his usual haunts. CHAPTER XV. JM afternoon of that rainy April 'fourth, Daniel roamed restlessly about 'the loop, until, shortly before dark, the returns' ; begnn coming In, About the newspaper offices he mingled with the - crowds, black smudges against shining streets, watching the figures flashed by precincts on screens; and when, as often occurred, he' was greeted effu- siv-ely by friends and acquaintances, he would answer perfunctorily, and stride on to the next bulletin.- ; .--Froia 'the start-it was plainly seen •which way the election tended. Dta- woody was 'carrying the First, Fourth, Fifth, Tenth, 'Sixteenth and Eighteenth wards' by'a*b'ig plurality. Fitzrandolph and..Bufgi!fe:on were running neck and neck. 'iSkiflJJ&f^the Socialist, was last.' 'Before "eight o'clock the winner was known. John Dlnwoody, champion of vice and crime, .was elected mayor of Chicago. With a sickening dissolution, Daniel's castle came • crumbling about his ears, and he lay among the ruins and the dustobruised and stunned by the utter havoc, yet unresigned to the inevitable. **•***• Scenting a storm of questions anent his unexplained absence, Daniel forestalled it by outlining to his secretary. a philanthropic plan of such magnitude that the curiosity of the two was drowned in astonishment. "I believe you're kidding!" exclaimed Hunt. "Do you know what such a thing would' cost?" "Fully"—glancing over the letters and telegrams beside his plate. -. "It would take the bulk of your, fortune, rich as you' arc." "Not 'would,' Harry, 'will.'" Putting aside his mail, and devouring a thick steak as he.talked, Dnniel continued: "I shall establish these houses/in event-own of a hundred thousand or more. In New York, Philadelphia and Chi- j there will be one to every two i hundred thousand inhabitants—or j more if needful. They will be self-sup- i porting, nonprofit-making. Those 1 who i can afford will have food and shelter ! nt the net cost of provision. Those i ivho cnnnot will have both free. Above all else, I want no publicity. In fact.

"Altogether, Harry, it has cost, me a . l-warm million dollars. But it has been worth it — every cent, I've had 'a mil. lion dollars' worth of fun." - Yet an hour later, had one looked in 'the front'- ro'om of Daniel's 'apartment, one would have doubted it. The roonr •was quite dark, and before the front •windows overlooking {Jratit. park he ?iras sitting very. sil,ent and motionless. A gray foe was rolling damply in from ..Ilie lake, tlii'ekenrng the night with its 'Clammy embrace. From the avenue below came sounds of an irresponsible quartette. They •.were rendering "The Heart Bowed Down," and even their untutored throats, guttural with libations, could j not wholly mar the tragic sweetness | cf Balfe's scO melody. The melancholy strains, something softened by the distance, floated dole- 'fully up to him. Music — even the worst — always had a singular effect upon* -Daniel. Good or bad. he could never, listen to it without feeling within him a responsiveness transcending the composer's note. It was as though, sounding the keynote, he soared on into realms the composer essayed, yet -failed to attain. His elbows resting 'on the urms of the chair, his chin on" his interlaced fingers, he sat for a long while gazing -Into the fo.csy gloom. And mirrored in his face was nn ineffable loneliness - wh'ich by its very profundity musl needs be mute. ' He pressed his hands to his forehead and slowly shook his head," again and again, his eyes closed. Yes. Yes, he had failed once more, He would fail nest timei He would always fail.' He could not forget. He could never forget. Daniel started, sat up suddenly, looked round with .a jerk. It was past nine o'clock. He had been asleep in ills chair five hours.
