Ah a Very ItolniMt PreKldential PimmI PimmI-hlllty
hlllty PimmI-hlllty The Second Choice of
Several Hie Stalen
Baltimore, June 20. First on the
field that will soon be the scene of the
battle for the democratic nomination
are the marshals of Governor Judson
Harmon. They are in the Monument
City primed with confidence in the
ability of their candidate to capture
first prize in. the White House race.
Gov. Harmon, they declare, is the sec
ond choice of more states than either
Gov. Wilson or Speaker- Clark are the
first choice of, and as such the Ohio
man will naturally be the convention's
selection when it becomes plain that
neither Wilson nor Clark can win.
This may not be the way that the
situation is analyzed by either the
Clark or Wilson managers, but this
reasoning is not illogical when all the
inside conditions of the presidential
canvass are fairly considered. It is
admitted that neither Clark nor Wil
son will go into the convention with a
majority of the ballots instructed for
them. Lacking this majority which,
by the way, is a long ways from a
two-thirds vote, as is required to cap capture
ture capture the nomination It is certain that
several ballots will be needed to win.
Granting that the convention dead deadlocks
locks deadlocks on Wilson and Clark and admit admitting
ting admitting the improbability of Col. Bryan
being able to stampede the convention.
Gov. Harmon will immediately take
the front as the compromise candidate.
At least this is the way the Harmon
marshals figure it out. They say they
do not expect a walkover, but they

cannot foresee defeat, considering the
bitter animosity which exists between
the Wilson and Clark camps. This
animosity, as the Harmon boosters see
it, will result in the Wilson and Clark
votes being cast for the Ohio gover governor
nor governor after the second or third ballot.
Considering the developments of the
preconvention campaign Gov. Harmon's
chances of ultimate victory are by no
means as slim as the casual observer
might regard them. In Illinois, where
Speaker Clark won in the primaries
over Governor Wilson, it is admitted
that the preponderance of sentiment
was for Gov. Harmon, although his
name did not go on the ballot. This
is based on a statement by Roger Sul Sullivan,
livan, Sullivan, the democratic leader In Il Illinois.
linois. Illinois. Much of the same condition
prevailed in Indiana, where the state
convention instructed for Gov. Mar Marshall,
shall, Marshall, a favorite son. This state. It Is
asserted, will vote for Gov. Harmon on
the second ballot. New York is the
third of the trio of pivotal states that
Gov. Harmon s managers count on.
The Empire State, they declare, will
cast its vote for Harmon after the
complimentary vote is given to Mayor
Gaynor. Together with the solid dele delegation
gation delegation from Ohio, Harmon will be un unbeatable
beatable unbeatable when the convention gets
down to serious business, according to
the Buckeye state's lieutenant gov
ernor, Hugh L. Nichols, who is the
chief field marshal of "Uncle Jud."
Another phase of the democratic
pre-convention fight that ought to be
considered in the general summing
up is the statement, made by the Har
mon managers, that Speaker Clark's
strength had developed in republican
states. This is due. they say, to the
fact that his candidacy has been ma
terlally aided by the Roosevelt man
agers, who believing Clark to be the
weakest democratic candidate, have
thrown him votes wherever they could.
This may not be entirely fair to the
speaker, but considerable color is giv
en to it in view of the fact that he has
shown less strength than has Governor
Wilson in purely democratic states
where the two have been opponents.
In any event, the democratic strug
gle for the nomination will be one of
the stiffest seen in years. The man
agers of the various candidates all ad
mit this and they are accordingly pre
paring to make a do-or-die fight, with
the underlying hope that the most for
midable man may win. Baltimore
from now on will be the hub of the po

A STORY OF ADVEXTinn AXD IX IX-TKIGUE
TKIGUE IX-TKIGUE (By Louis Joseph Vance)
The wanderer had come upon Mrs.
Prynne but once since he had board boarded

self himself early astir because of his vague
misgivings, he had discovered her on
the hurricane deck of the liner; an in inconspicuous,

rail and gazing with he fancied)
troubled eyes, out and across the
waste below Ismalla.
Though she must have been con conscious

not stirred, and he had passed on,
gaining but a fugitive glimpse of a
profile sweetly serious; nor had she
appeared either at breakfast or lunch luncheon.
eon. luncheon. A circumstance which led him
to surmise that she did not court ob observation:
servation: observation: an idiosyncrasy which
seemed passing strange in a woman
He told himself that she wore an
air of watchfulness, of vague expec expectancy,
tancy, expectancy, as though she, like himself,
feared some untoward mishap; that
she had the manner of one definitely
apprehensive, constantly on guard
against some unforeseen peril.
Now, he asked himself, what could
It be? What threatened her? And
He dimly promised himself the
pleasure of her acquaintance, relying
in the rapid intimacy that springs up
between strangers on a long voyage,
with a still more indefinite intention
of putting himself at her service in
any cause that she might be pleased
to name, provisionally: she must not
interfere with his plans for reaching
Rangoon "in ninety days."
That night he was hoping to find
the lady at dinner; but though the
ship's company was small, he failed
to see her in the saloon, at either the
captain's, the chief officer's or the
j doctor's table; nor, so far as he could
J determine, was she taking the air on
deck. Was it possible, then, that he
had been right, that she had a reason
equally as compelling as his own for
secluding herself? Or, was It simply
(and infinitely more probably) that
Mrs. Prynne was indisposed, an ener enervated
vated enervated victim of excessive heat?
The Hatter conjecture proved ap apparently
parently apparently the right one, Mrs. Prynne
failing to appear during the two fol following
lowing following days, while the Panjnab was
rocking down the Red Sea channel;
and O'Rourke grew interested enough
(he had little else to occupy his mind,
for a duller voyage he had never
known) to give Danny permission to
pursue his inquiries: with an injunc injunction,

fiu expenditure of the boy's wealth of

This was entirely reasonable.
O'Rourke accepted the demolition of
his airy castles of Romance, laughed
at himself, in part was successful in
putting the woman out of mind;
doubtless, in time, he would have done
so altogether, had not the lady chosen
to take the air the night that the
Panjnab negotiated the Straits of
Bab-el-Mandeb. For on that same
night, O'Rourke, himself wakeful, was
minded to sit up and watch the lights
of Perim Island heave into view.
O'Rourke, in a deck-chair on the
starboard side, well cloaked in the
shadow of the deck above, watch watched

quiet their chatter, yawn, stretch and
slip below to stuffy staterooms.
He suffered a dreamy eye to rove
where it would, greedy of the night's
Four bells two o'clock chimed
upon his consciousness like a physical
shock. He verified the hour by his
watch and, reluctantly enough, agreed
that it was time he got himself to
bed. He half rose from his chair, then
sank back with an inaudible catch of
his breath; Without warning the ap apparition

Unquestionably unconscious of his
presence in the shadow, she fell to
pacing to and fro. Now and again,
she stopped, and with chin cradled in
her small hands, elbows on the rail,
watched the approaching cliffs of
Arabia; then, with perhaps a sigh, re returned

Partly because he had no wish to
startle herj partly because he was
glad to watch unobserved (he had a
rare eye for beauty, the O'Rourke),
the wanderer sat on without moving,
stirred only by active curiosity. The
strangeness of her appearance upon
deck at such an hour fascinated his
imagination no less than her person
held his eye. He gave himself over
to vain and profitless speculation.

had something to fear, someone to
avoid. What or whom? What was it
all, what the mystery that, as he
watched her. seemed to grow, to cling
about her like some formless, im impalpable
palpable impalpable garment?
Events conspired to weave the man
inu the warp and -woof of her affairs;
more quickly than he could grasp the
reason for his sudden action, he found
himself a-foot and dashing aft at top
speed. But an instant gone Mrs
Prynne had passed him, unmolested
and wrapped in her splendid isola isolation;
tion; isolation; and then from the after part of
j the deck he had heard a slight ad
j guarded cry of distress, and a small
i scuffling sound.
In two breaths he was by her side
and found her struggling desperately
in the arms of a lascar a deck-hand
on the steamer.
At first the strangeness of the busi business
ness business so amazed O'Rourke that he
caused and held hi band, briefly
rooted in action. For although It was
apparent that she had been caught otl
her guard, wholly unprepared against
assault, and while she struggled fierce fiercely
ly fiercely to break the lascar's hold, the wom woman
an woman still uttered no cry. A single
scream would have brought hr aid;
yet she held her tongue.
The two, the woman's slight, white
figure and the lascar's gaunt and sin sinewy
ewy sinewy one, strained and fought, swaying
silently In the shadows, tensely, with
the effect of a fragment of some dis disordered
ordered disordered nightmare. But then, as the
lascar seemed about to overpower his
victim, O'Rourke, electrified, sprang
upon the man's back. With one strong
arm deftly he embraced the fellow, an
elbow beneath his chin forcing hla
head up and back. With the other
hand O'Rourke none too gently tore
away an arm encircling the woman.
Then wrenching the two apart, he
sent a knee crashing Into the small of
the lascar's back, all but breaking him

Without a word the man slid upon

O'Rourke fell back a pace or two.
His own hands were empty; he had
nothing but naked fists and high cour courage
age courage to pit against the lascar and his
kris. Keenly alert, he threw himself
into a pose of defence.
But O'Rourke had forgotten the
woman; it was enough that he had
made possible her escape, a he had
no thought other than she had fled. It
was, therefore, with as much surprise
as relief that he caught the glimmer
of her white figure as she thrust her herself

Simultaneously, he heard her voice,

"Very." There was in fact an in indefinite

deprecation; "and my ways are hedged

She lifted her gaze to his, coloring
divinely there in the moon-glamor. He
looked into her curiously bewitching
eyes and saw there an appeal and a
strange little tender smile. Her head
was so near his shoulder that he was
aware of the vague, alluring perfume
of her hair. Her scarlet Hps parted
