THE BIEOE OF TIlK MTV OF PINES. Tho battle was already lust. l''i'om a >' 'thousand feet above us ewoliod tho ^hotitf !'. 'Of victory. The battle Was lost, and yet I ' miist fight on. As swiftly as I could I •Withdrew those who were loft to mo to n certain angle in tho path, where a score of desperate men might for awhile hold buck the advance of an army, Hera I called for some to, stand at my sldo, and ninny answered 'to my call. Out of them I choso 60 men or more, bidding the rest run hnrrf for the City of fines, there to warn thosn <who wore loft In garrison that the hour of > danger was upon thorn, and, should I fall, • to conjure Otomlo, my wife, to make the ' best resistance In her power till, if it were possible, she could wriu;; from tho Spun- lards a promise'of safety for herself, her child and her people. Meanwhile I could hold the pass so that time might be given to shut the gates and man tho walls. Witb the main body of those who were left to •Jno I sent back my son, though he prayed hard to be allowed to stay with me. But, seeing nothing before me except death, I refused him. Presently nil were gone, and fearing a snore the Spaniards came slowly and cautiously .round the angle of the rook, and •eelng so few men mustered to meet thorn, .halted, for now they were certain that we had set a trap for them, since they did not think it possible that such a little band would venture to oppose their array. Hero the ground lay so that only a few of them could come against .us at one time, nor could they bring their heavy pieces to bear npon us, and even their arquebuses helped them but little; also the roughness of tho rood forced them to dismount from thoir horses, so that if they would attack at all It must be on foot. This In tho end they chose to do. Many foil upon either side, though I my self received no wound, but in the end they drove us back; Inch by Inch thef drove us back, of rather those who were left of us, at the points of their long lances, till at length they forced us into the mouth of tho pass that is some five furlongs distant from what was once the wall of the City of Pines. To fight further was of no avail. Hero must choose between death and flight, 1, as may bo guessed, for wives' and Idren's sake, If not for our own, wo we to fly. Across tho plain we fled llko deer, and after us came the Spaniards and their allies like hounds. Happily tho ground was rough with stones, so that their horses could not gallop freely, and thus it happened that some of us, perhaps 90, gained the gates in safety. Of my army not more than 500 in all lived to enter them again, and perchance there were as many left within the city. The heavy gates swung to, and scarcely were they barred with tho massive beams of oak when tho foremost of the Spaniards redo up to them. My bow was still In my hand, and there was one arrow loft in my quiver.' I set it on the string, and draw- Ing tho bow with my full strength II;::.. •<! tho shaft through tho bars of tin: pair ;ID a young and gallant looking cuvulkT who rode the first of all.

Then they withdrew, but presently o;iu of their number came forward bearing a llag of tfuco.

Without a doubt it wua Do UaroU, vrho now, us at every crisis of my life, appeared to eliupe my fortunes .to some ovll cud, and I felt as I looked upon him that the last and greatest struggle between us was at hand, and that before many days woro «nod tho undent and accumulated huto ot • vfM'.r*--.•»•..•<••*••.-•?•"•* "*".**• :r 'T«r- -:•• lie railed hl» vl»or and began to tncak. row or bo* «' »» would •* »"rt<d fwow tn the silonce °' *»Ui.

"I know well that there wlH 'bo no Mi cape for ono or other of us, Juan do Garcia," I answered.

You have prospered long, but a day may bo at hand when your pro*- pertt.y shall ccaso with your breath, 1fa your errand, Juan do Garcia." For a moment he sat silent, pulling at his pointed beard, and watching him 1 thought that I could eco tho shadow of a half forgotten fear creep into his eyes. I/ so, It was soon gone, for lifting his head he spoke boldly and clearly. "This is nay message to you, Thomiw Wlugflold, and to such of tho Otomle dogs with whom you herd as wo hove left alive today. Tho Captain BcrnalDinzoffers you terras on behalf of his excellency tho viceroy." "What are his terms'" I asked. "Merciful enough to such pestilent lebeti and heathens," ho answered, sneering. "Surrender v your city without condition, and the viceroy, in his clemency, will a* cept tho surrender. Nevertheless, lost you should say afterward that faith has been broken with you, be It known to you that you shall not go unpunished for youf many crimes. This Is tho punishment that shall be inflicted on you. All those who had part or parcel In the devilish murder of that holy saint, Father fedro,.shall be burned at the stake. Such of the leader? oPtfig'tjttimro o& tho judges may select shall be hanged publicly, among them yourself, Gouiln Wlngfleld, and more particularly the woman. Otonaia, daughter of MontoKuma, the late king. POT tho rest, the dwellers In the City of Finos must surrender their wealth Into tho treasury of the viceroy, and they themselves, men, women and children, shall be led from the city and be distributed, according to'the viceroy's pleasure, upon the estates of such of the Spanish settlers as ho may . select, there to learn the useful arte of bms- bandryand mining. These are the conditions of surrender, and I am commanded to say that an hour Is given yon In whfch to decide whether to accept or reject them." "And if we reject them?" "Then the Captain Bernal Diaz has orders to sock and destroy this city, and having given It over 13 hours to the mercy of the TloscaJnns and other faithful Indian allies to collect those who n»y bo left Uw- Ing within it and bring them to tho CTty of Mexico, there to bo sold as slaves." "Good," I said. l "You shall have your answer in an hour." Now, leaving the gate guarded, I hurried to the palace, sending messengers as 1 went to summon such of the council of the elty as remained alive. At ttie door of me palooe I met Otomle, who greeted roe fondly, for after hearing of our disaster she hod hardly looked to see mo again. "Come with me to tho hall of assembly," I said; ''there I will speak to you." Wo went to tho boll, whore tho mem be re of the council wore already gathered. So' soon as tho most of them wore assembled— thoro wero hut eight in all—I repeated to them tho words of Do Garcia without comment. Then Otomio spoke, as* being the first In rank, she had a right to do. Twice before I luul heard her address tho people of tho Otomie upon thcso questions of defense against, tho Spaniards. The first time, it may bo remembered, was when wo came as envoys from, Moiito- zuma's (bur father's) successor, to pruy the aid of the children of the mountain against Cortes and tho Tonics. Tho second time was when, some 14 years ago, wo had returned to tho City of Piueg as fugitives after tho fall of Tonootltlon, and tho populace, mpvoil to fury by tho destination of Heart*' 20,000 of their soldlrr*, would lii-.vo delivered us an u poacu offering iuttj Uio hunAs of tho Spaniards. On each uf those occasions Otomio had triumphed by hor eloquence, by tho greatness of hor nuino and tho majesty of her presence. Now things were fur otherwise, and oven hud she not Boomed to use them suoh urU would have uvittlcd us naUtUm ill thoir extremity. Now her great name was but a elmdow, ono of many waning shadows case by an empire whose glory had guno fojrt<ver. Mow ate uted no pos> slouutu appeal to tho pridu find traditions of a doomed ricu, now she wus no longer young, and the Urst splendor of hor worn- uiiliood hud departed from bur. And y«t, iw v.-lth hor son and mine by her side) abe ro.:o U) address those seven councilors, who, hagj,'i!ixl with fear and hopeless In tho grasp uf fate, crouched In silence before bur, their faooa burled In thoir bonds, I thought Hiot Otoinlo had nuvor (Higjtnril more beautiful, and that her words, simple r.s they wore, had novel 1 been more eloquent, "Friends," shosald, "you know tho disaster that has overtaken us.

Bring- j Ing up their pieces of ordnance, tho Span- lards act them within little moro than a hundred pneo.i of tho gates and began to batter Us with Iron shot at their leisure, for our spears and arrows could scarcely ham thefa at such n distance. Still wo were Ml Idle, for seeing that tho wooden gates wast soon ho down we demolished houses on cither side of them and filled up the roadway with stones and rubbish. At! the rear of the heap thus forhied I caused j a great trench to bo dug, which could not ' be passed by horseman and ordnance till j It was filled in again. All along the main j street leading to tho great square of tho teocnlli I threw up other barricades, protected in tho front and rear by dikes cut through the roadway, and In case the Spaniards should try to turn'our flank and force a passage through the narrow and tortuous lanes to the right and left I also barricaded the four entrances to tho great square or market place. Till nightfall tho Spaniards bombarded tho shattered remains of tho gate and tho earthworks behind them, doing no great damage beyond the killing of about a score of people by cannon shot and arquebus bolls. But they attempted no assault that I day. At length the darkness fell, and tho i fire ceased, but not so our labors. Most of the men must guard the gates and the weak spots In tho walls, and therefore the building of tho barricades was left chiefly to tho women working under my commands and that of my captains. Otomie herself took a shore In tho toil, an example that was followed by every lady and indeed every woman in the city, and there were many of them, for the women outnumbered tho men among the Otomle, and, moreover, not a few of them had been made widows on that same day. It was a strange sight to see them In the glare of hundreds of torches split from the rosin pine that gave It* name to the olty, as all night long they moved to and fro in lines, each of them staggering beneath tho weight of a basket of earth or a heavy stone, or dug with wooden spades at the hard soil, or labored at the pulling down of houses. They never complained, but worked on sullenly and despairingly. No groan or tear broke from them—no, not even from those whose husbands and sons had been hurled that morning from the precipices of the pass. They knew that resistance would bo useless and that their doom was at hand, but no cry arose among them of surrender to the Spaniards. Those of them who spoke of the matter at all laid, with Otomie, that It was better to die 'reo than to live as slaves, but the most did not speak. The old and the young, nother, wife, widow and maid, they labored in silence, and the children labored at their sides. Looking at them, it came Into my mind ilmt thcso silent, patient women woro inspired by some common and desperate pur- (ose that all knew of, but which none of hem chose to toll. "WiH you work so hard for your mos- »re, tho Teulcsf" cried a man in bitter ntaekmy a* a file of them tolled past beneath their loads of stone. "Fool!" answered their leader, a young and lovely lady of rank, "do tho dead labor f" "Nay," said this ill jester, "but such ae 'on ore too fair for tho Tonics to kill, and our years of slavery will bo many. Say, low shall you escape them?" "Fool!" answered tho lady again, "does tra die fro*i lack of fuel only, and must every man live till ago takes him? We shall escapo tlioni thus,"and aistingdbwn rho torch she carried she trod it into the garth with her sandal and went on with icr load. Than I was sure that they had omo purpose, though I did not guess bow lesporato it was, and Otomio would tell mo nothing of this woman's secret. "Otomto,," I said to her that night when wo mot by chance, "I have ill news for •ou." "It must bo bud indeed,, husband, to be named in such an hour," she answered. "•Bfc Oowlu ix among our loos." "I know It, husband." "How did you know It?" "By UMI huto written in your eyes," she answered. ''It seems that his hour of triumph Is at< mud," I-Huid. "Nny, beloved, not his, but yours. Yoiu hall triumph over Do Givrolo, but victory' vlll uottt you dear. I know it in my heart. Ask me not how or why. See, tho queen nits on hor crown," and sho pointed to he volean Xacii, whoso snows grow rosy with tho cfciwu, ''and you must go to the- ;ato, for the Spaniards will noon bu stir- Ing " As Otomie spok* I heard a trumpet ilaro without tho walls. Hurrying to tho »ratos by the first light of day, I could see that the Spaniards wero mustering their- orcea for attack. They did not come at moo, however, but delayed till tho sun was well up. Then they began to pour a urlousflro upon our defenses tlmt reduced t bo shattered beams of tho gates to pow- i lor and evon shook down tho oreat of the- { earthwork Iwyond them.

Hia attention was called to Tbe Sun's report of the speeches of Major McKinley commenting upon the London speech and tbe chamber of commerce dinner, Re read this attentively and, putting down tha paper, remarked that "the best answer to alt this is the speech I delivered and which Major McKinley is criticising. If Major McKinley is rightly reported, he has simply garbled my speech by using the first half of a sentence, to twist It In oneway and omitting-.the last half, which could not be used. I knew full well that whatever I might say on such an occasion would be thus garbled and falsely presented to the American people by protection speakers and papers, and so I did what I seldom do or hare time to do, dictated and gave to the press an accurate synopsis of my Speech and a full copy of the address to tho London Times, which called forth a long editorial in that paper the next day, from which Major McKinley and his followers may take all the comfort they can draw, •poke u MI American Cltlien. "I went abroad at my, doctor's suggestion to shake off my unspeakable fatigue so as to take part as much as possible in the campaign. In England I visited friends at Oxford and Cambridge. Everybody being in London phrase 'out of town,' I saw few public men. The dinner tendered me, I felt too great an honor to my country and myself to be declined, coming from ths great commercial chamber of the world, and I accepted, feeling that I. could not show my appreciation of it better than speaking as an American citisen and exactly ae I speak here at borne. In this I was not deceived, my speech was received by the whole audience in the spirit in which it was made and While many, perhaps most of them, may have disagreed with me, I found that more than one long-headed Englishman agreed Our reduced tariff would make us a great competitor in the world's markets and eventually regain f«r us oar shaie ot tbe carrying trade of the world." iHUted on BnterUlnlBS; Him. In London Mr. Wilson paid not th* slightest attention to politics and saw few public men except at the chamber of commerce- dinner. The English public men so far seem to know but little of tha tariff and ho- beard not many expressions of opinion OB the subject. But as a general rule tho English people always, welcome anything that will promote trade. Mr. Strauss here interposed arid declared that Mr. Wilson, with characteristic modesty, had tried hard to conceal himself and kept ont of public notice.. But the hospitable British business men bad learned of his presence in London and insisted on entertaining him. The entertainers, Mr. Strass added, ore the greatest merchants of the world and the compliments paid to Mr* Wilson as a tribute to his distinguished ability and great reputation aa a patriot is one that few Americans huvo received in a foreign country. Mr. Wilson repeated that he was perfectly well aware of the use the Republicans would innko of the incident, but to hiiro refused it, he said, wonld have- been ill bred, churlish and cowardly. Mr, Wilson was asked if he bad made any investigation about "trusts" in England. Triut* O«nnot Edit In England. "1 did not this time," he replied, "but when 1 was in England in 1889 I did, and discussed the subject in a serietj of articles I wrote for tho Sun at that time, Bomo of the articles were written., from England. Trusts, as we know them, of oourso cannot exist in Great Britain. Where tbe whole world is free to oou- [i:-to no trust can corner tho market-."' With regard to ooal, Mr. Wilson stated that tho English syndicate which- formerly owned the Nova Scotia mines were much pleased at getting rid of tbe property. Practically, bunker coal was ou tho free list in tbo MoKiuley bill. Foreign steamships could, and cnn, buy Nova Scotia coal at Boston, Now York, or any American port free of duty, and ret they prefer to buy tbe Maryland and Virginia coal. This faot ulouo ought to do away with the scare about free coal.
