CHAPTER XXI. THE KIOHT OF FEAtt. . Long before 1 nwoko that, day the com- j mauds of the council had been carried out, : and the bridges In the great causeways , Were broken down wherever dikes crossed , the raised roads that ran through the wa- ' ten of the lake. That afternoon also I ' Went, dressed as an Indian warrior, with ', GUntemoc and tho other generals, to a par- ! ley which was hold with Cortes, w!io took j his stand in tho same tower of the palace \ that Monteznma had stood on when tho ; arrow of Guotcmoo struck him down. \ There Is little to bo said of this parley, and ' I remembered It chiefly because it was then, for the first time since I had left tho ! Tabascaus, that I saw Marina close and heard her sweet and gentle voice, for : now, as over, showns by tho sldo of Cortes, translating his proposals of peace to the Aztecs, Among those proposals was one that showed me that De Garcia hod not ! been idle.' It asked that the false white i man who had been rescued from the altars of tho gods upon tho teocalll should be given in exchange for certain Aztec prisoners, in order that he might be hung, according to his merits, as a spy and deserter, a traitor to the emperor of Spain. I wondered as I heard If Marina knew when •he spoke the words that "tho false white man" was none other than the friend of her Tabascan days, "You see that you are fortunate In having found place among us Aztecs, Teule," •aid Guatemoo, with a laugh, ''for your own people would greet you with a rope." Then he answered Cortes, saying nothing of mo, but bidding him and all the Spaniards prepare for death. "Many of us havo perished," he said. "You also must perish, Teules. You shall perish of hunger and thirst; you shall perish on the altars of the gods. There is no escape for you, Teules. The bridges are broken." And all tho multitude took up the words and thundered out: ' ' There Is no escape for you, Teules. The bridges are broken!" Then tho shooting of arrows began, and I (ought the palace to tell Otomle, my wife, what I had gathered of the state 6f her father Montezuma, who tho Spaniards said still lay dying, and of her two Bisters, who were hostages in their quarters. Two days later came tho news that Montezuma was dead and shortly after it his body, which tho Spaniards handed over to the Aztecs for burial, attired in tho gorgeous robes of royalty. They laid it In tho hall of tho palace, whence it was hurried secretly and at night to Chapoltepeo and there hidden away with small ceremony, for it was feared that the people might tend it limb from limb In their rage. With Otomie weeping at my side, I looked for tho last time on the face of that most unhappy king, whoso reign, so glorious in its beginning, had ended thus. Otomio, ceasing from her tears, kissed his olay and cried aloud: "O my father, it is well that you are deod, for none who loved you could desire to Bee you live on in shame and servitude! May tho gods you worshiped give me strength to avenge you, or if they be no gods then may I find it in myself. I swear this, my father, that while a man is loft to me I will not cease from- seeking to avenge you. " Then, taking my hand, without another ward she turned nnd passed thence. As will bo seen, she kept her oath. On that day and' on tho morrow there was fighting with tho Spaniards, who sallied out to fill up the gaps in tho dikes of the causeway, a task in which they succeeded, though with some loss. But it availed them nothing, for so soon us their backs wore turned we opened tho dikes again. It was on these days that for tho first time I had experience of war, and armed with my bow mode after the Ene- Ittih pnttorn I did good service. As It ohunccil, tho very first arrow that I drew was on lay hated foes Do Garcia, but hero my common fortune pursued mo, for, being out of practice or overanxious, I aimed too high, though tho mark wag an easy one, and tho shaft pierced the Iron of his cnsquo, causing him to reel In his saddle, but doing him no further hurt. Still this marksmanship, poor us it was, gained mo great renown among tlio Aztecs, who were but fcoblo archers, for they hud never before soon an arrow pierce through tho Spanish mull. Nor would mine luivo done so had I not collected tho Iron barbs off tho crossbow bolts of Uio Spaniards and fitted them to my own slmflK. I seldom found tho mail that would withstand arrows iimilo thus when tho rangu was short and tho aim good. After the first day's fight, I was appointed general over u body of 8,000 archers and wax Riven a banner to bo borne bofore mo and a gorgeous captain 'H dress to wear. Hut what ploimod mo better wiw a chain shirt which came from tho body of a Spanish cuvullor. For many yours I always woro this shirt beneath my cotton mail, anil it suvud my life nioro than once, for oven bullutu would not pluroo tho two of (hum. I hud taken over tho command of my aruhors but 48 hours, u scant time in which to touch thorn discipline, whereof tkty had little, though they wuro bravo enough when tho occasion ouiuo to UBO thorn In good earnest, and with it tho night of ills- aster that In still known among tho Spaniards at) tho nocho trlnto. Onthouftornoou before that night a council wimholil In the palaoo, at which I spoke, Buying! wan certain thut the TuuluH thought of retreat from thu city and In tho dark, for otherwise thuy would not liuvu boon to eager to fill up Uio uuuaU In tho ouu»owuy.

"lllslOll," I Mild. "U U HID Totiliiu who wwape," whisper the great Bqunro opens on to the causeway, and there even through the darkness and rain wo caught tho gleam of armor. Then I cried aloud in a great voice: ''To arms I To arms! Tho Teules escape by the cause- Way of Tlacopan I" Instantly my words wero caught up by the sentries and passed from post to post till tho city rang with them. They were cried in every street and canal) they echoed from tho roofs of houses and among tho summit* of a hundred temples. The city awoko with n murmur; from tho lako came thu sound of water beaten by 10,000 oars, as though myriads of wild fowl had sprung suddenly from their reedy beds. Hero, there and everywhere torches flashed out like falling stars, wild notes wero blown on horns and shells, and above all arose tho booming of the snakeskln drum, which tho priests upon tho teocalll beat furiously. Presently tho murmur grow to a roar, and from this direction and from that armed men poured toward tho causeway of Tlacopnn. Some came on foot, but the most of them were in canoes which covered the waters of tho lake farther than tho ear could hear. Now tho Spaniards to tho number of 1,500 or so, accompanied by some 0,000 or 8,000 Tlascalans, were merging on tho causeway in a long thin Inc. Guatemoc and I rushed before them, collecting men as wo went, till we came to tho first canal, where canoes wero already gathering by scores. The head of the Span- sh column reached tho canal, and tho fight began, which, so far as tho Aztecs wero concerned, was a fray without plan or order, 'or in that darkness and confusion tho captains could not see their men or the men hear tholr captains. But they were ihero In countless numbers and had only me desire In their breast—to kill tho Teules. A cannon roared, sending a storm of bullets through us, and by Its flash we saw that tho Spaniards carried a timber bridge with them, which they wore placing across tho canal. Then wo fell on Shorn, every man fighting for himself. Suatomoo and I wero swept over that bridge by tho first rush of the enemy aa leaves are swept in a gale, and though both of us won through safely wo saw each other no more that night. With us and after us came the long array of Spaniards and Tlascalans, and from every sldo the Aztecs poured upon them, clinging to their struggling lino as ants cling to a wounded worm. How con 1 tell nil that come to pass that night? I cannot, for I saw but little of it All I know is that for two hours I was fighting like a madman. The foe crossed tho first canal, but when all wero over tho bridge was sunk BO deep In the mud that it could not bo stirred, and three furlongs on ran a second canal, deeper and wider than tho first. Over this they could not cross till It was bridged with tho dead. It seemed as though all hell had broken loose upon that narrow ridge of ground. Tho sound of cannon and of arquebuses, tho shrieks of ugony and fear, tho shouts of tho Spanish soldiers, tho warcrios of the Aztecs, tho screams of wounded horses, tho wall of women, tho hiss of hurtling darts and arrows and tho dull noise of falling blows wont up to heaven in one hideous hurly burly. Like a frightened mob of cattle, tho long Spanish array swayed this way and that, bellowing as it swayed. Many rolled down tho sides of tho causeway to be slaughtered in tho waters of the lake or borne away to sacrifice In the canoes, many woro drowned in the canals, and yet moro wero trampled to disith In tho mud. Hundreds of tho Aztecs perished also, for tho most part beneath tho weapons of their own friends, who struck and shot, not knowing on whom tho blow should fall or in whoso breast tho arrow would find its homo. For my part, I fought on with a little baud of men who hud gathered about mo till at last tho dawn broke and showed an awful sight. Tho most of those who wore left ullvo of tho Spuniimls and tholr allies had crossed tho second cunul upon a bridge mado of tho dead bodies of tholr fellows mixed up with a wreck of baggage, cannon and packages of treasure. Now tho fight was raping beyond it. A mob of Spaniards and Tlasoaluns woro still crossing tho second broach, and ou those I fall with euch men as woro with mo. I plunged right into tho heart of them, and suddenly boforo mo I saw tho face of Do Garcia. With a shout I rushed at him. Ho hoard my voice and know mo. With an oath ho struck at my head. Tho heavy sword came down upou my helmet of painted wood, shearing away one sldo of it uml foiling mo, but ore I foil I smoto him on tho breast with the club I curried, tumbling him to tho earth. Now, half stunned nnd blinded, I crept toward him through the press. All that I could soo wts u gleam of armor lu tho mud. I threw myself upon it, gripping at tho wearer's throut, and together Quickly wu fun to wkuro thu »troot from / threw myself upon it, pripptna at < uwtrer't Uirout. we rolled down tho tide of Uio causeway Into tho shallow wutor at Uio edge of tho lake. I wai uppermost, aud with a floroo Joy I dashod tho blood from my eye* thai I might sou to kill my enemy, caught at last. His body wan lu tho lako, but his hood lay upon tho sloping bunk, and my plan was to hold him bonouth tho wutor till bo was drowned, for I had lo*t my olub. "At length, Do Garolal" I cried In Spanish as I shifted my grip. "For tho love of God, lot uio go I" gained a rough voice buuoaUi uia "Fool, 1 am no Indian dog." Now I peurod Into tho man's face bewildered. I hud Boizod Do Garola, but tho voice wa» not his voice, nor was the faco hU face, but (hut of a rough Spanish soldier. "Who are youf" I said, •laokonlng luy hold. "Whoro la IX) Gurolo, ho whom you HawoSarcodaf" "Baroedttf 1 don't know. A minute ago ho wan on lit* book on the oauaeway.

Farewell, '' and without more ado ho rushed up the bank nnd plunged into a knot of Ills flying countrymen, leaving his sword in my hand. 1 strove to follow him that t migbt fjiul my enemy, who once more mil M«tap(.d by craft, but my strength lulled mo, for Do Gnrcla's sword hml bit- on deep, end I blod much. So I must sit •wlioro I was till acanoo canio and bore mo nick to Otomio to ho nursed, and 10 days went by before 1 could walk again. This was my sharo of tho victory of the nochc tristo. AlaH, It was a barren triumph, though nioro than 600 of tho Spaniards woro slain and thousands of tholr lilllosl For there was no warlike skill or disolpl Ino among tho Aztecs, and Instead of following the Spaniards until nono of them remained alive they staid to plunder tho clcud and drag away tho living to sacrifice. Also this day of revenge was a sad one to Otomie, seeing that two of her brothers, Montczuma's sons, whom tho Spaniards held In hostage, perished with them In tho fray. As for Do Garcia, I could not learn what had become of him, nor whether he was dead or living. PEFFER IS DISGUSTED. Considers the Fifty-Third Congress a Stupendous Failure. CONGRESSMAN HUDSON DECLINES, [TO BE CONTCTOID.] Bl&HOP BONACUM ON TOP. Rli Prints Get. Terr Cold Comfort From Mgr. 8»tolll. OMAHA, Sept. H.—A week ago the priests in the Nebraska diocese in rebellion against the authority of Bishop Bonacuin of Lincoln sent a committee to Archbishop Satolli to secure relief from what they term the prelafafr tyranny. This includes three-quarters 9. the priests of the diocese. The committee has returned. The mission was a failure, • the delegate refusing to interfere. The case In which the priests hoped to secure papal interference was the arbitrary re- moral of Father English of Hastings, a rery popular man, to an obscure location. They claim this is the result of the opposition of English to the bishop in the recent trial. Another important fact was developed by the interview. When Mgr. Satolli was appointed delegate to the United States, his coming was hailed as the beginning of the end of the missionary system. It was generally regarded as the preliminary step toward the establishment of the institution of canon law, which provides a comprehensive system for the determination of ecclesiastical legislation. Now the delegate declares that he is not here to institute new laws, but to interpret the laws as he finds them. Bav. Clapp Joint the Catholic*. NEW YORK, Sept. 11.—Walter Clayton Clapp, who was until recently a prominent clergyman of the high church in the Protestant Episcopal church, has been received into the Roman Catholic communicaucy through Father Elliot of the Pautist order.

Mr. Clapp in 1882 was appointed professor iu Nasho- tab theological seminary, Wisconsin. When the seminary closed last spring Mr. Clapp wont to Europe and spent some time at Rome. He resigned his chair at Nashotah on Aug. 1. Concatenated Order of Boo IIoo. KANSAS CITY, Sept. 11.—Mayor Davis welcomed the third annual convention of Concatenated Order of Hoc Hoo which got down to business in this city today.

TOPKKA, Sept. 11,—Senator William Peffer arrived in Topeka Monday afternoon. "Do you consider the work of the last congress satisfactory?" was aaked the senator. "Do I?" and the senator looked a trifle ruffled "I consider the Fifty-third congress the most stupendous failure in the history of the nation, Not a single act of public benefit was passed," 'What is your opinion of the new tariff bill?" "I don't like to talk about it. The proceedings were so scandalous that I do not enjoy talking about it. I speak of the general discussion and the complete surrender of the Democrats to a handful of men, There were 8H northern and southern Democrats In favor of what has always been advocated by the Democratic party, bnt there were six eastern men who call themselves Democr»t»,;b»t who are really Republicans, controlled that majority in the senate. "At no time oonld they get a majority to support the proposed measure without a caucus, so they held the caucus and gave instructions to have a bill prepared which would be satisfactory. Then the sugar trust came la with a demand that the sugar schedule be changed, aud the •Iz men stood out and said we will have thfe bill or nothing, and then cams the surrender. How humiliating to see a large body of men lay down their arms before a half down." "Why did you vote to pat a dutr on •alt?" asked the reporter. "I voted for a doty on both salt and wool, though I am really in favor of both free salt and free wool, I saw that the tariff legislation men ' legislation in favor of class interests on 1 the revenue features was completely lost sight of. I showed the senate that all our Kansas salt makers wanted was to retain their territory—that in, that some duty be put on salt so that the area they supply might not be encroached upon by foreign salt. "I favored a duty on wool because the bill proposed putting the duty on woolen goods and I wanted the Kansas farmers who raised the wool to be treated as well as the manufacturers. This whole thing was a grab game and I simply did my best to see that Kansas people wen treated as well as the other classes." The senator was 03 yean old Monday, but he bears his age well and looks better and younger than when he last left Topeka. CONGRESSMAN HUDSON WITHDRAWS dim M HU Hmuon That He Cannot Afford to Make thu Race. KANSAS CITY, Sept. H.—Hon. T. J. Hudson publishes a letter giving his reasons for declining to make the race for congress as a candidate of the Populists in the Third Kansas district. In the letter, which was addressed to the chairman of the convention which nominated him, Congressman Hudson explains his pecuniary condition, which he says is the cause of his withdrawal. His property is heavily encumbered and his holdings have rapidly depreciated in value, while his law practice has dwindled to nothing, owing to his congressional duties. He says his income as congressman has proven insufficient to meat the demands upon it. A new convention to nominate u candidate will be culled for Sept. 37. J. M. Duimuore, tho late speaker of the Populist house, is u candidate. Hudson was a Democrat when elected and received the indorsement of both Democrats and Populists. Since then he has gone to tho Populists, and now tho Democrats have a candidate in tho field In the person of W. F. Supp, and will support him. Republicans couti dently claim the election of Kirkpatrick since Snapp was nominated. They say this condition moved Hudson to withdraw. POPULIST PROPOSITION REJECTED. O'Ncll, Democratic Candidate for Coofrou In Kantae, Will N«t Bvtlro. TOPKKA, Kan., Sept. 11.—Promlmnit Populists submitted a proposition to T. J. O'Neil, Democratic candidate for congress in this, district, that if he would withdraw iu the interest of 8. M. Scott, Populist candidate, F. A. Williird, tho Populist candidate iu the Hocond district, would withdraw in favor of Colonel Moore, the Democratic candidate. Mr, O'Ni'll said that ho would be a candidate until the polls close In November ant] thut he would not withdraw, Curtis, Republican, was elected iu this dUtriol two years ago by S.U'iO majority over a Dumoorutlo arid Populist fusion, PREPARING FOR THE CAMPAIGN I'latUiiioutlk Itiiuk t)l PLATTBHOUTII, Neb., Sept.
