STATE DEPARTMENT T Congress to Be Asked to Strip Power From Labor Bureau. EXILE EFFORTS FAIL Post Successfully Balks Palmer In Banishment of Radicals De spite Convictions. Washington, D. C An effort Is to be made as soon as congress convenes to tako tho control of deportation of undesirable aliens out of the hands of the department of labor and place It in tho hands of tho department of state. Tho reason for this Is found in the continued succesB of Louis F. Post, assistant secretary of labor, in balk ing the effort of the department of justice to obtain the deportation of men, who, In the judgment of the attorney-general, have been shown to be guilty of advocating the overthrow of the American government by force. There are now at large In the United States no fewer than 150 aliens whose deportation has been ordered. Many, and perhaps nearly all of these have been paroled by Mr. Post to a com mltee named by him, who are said to be advanced thinkers In politics and economics not anarchists or com munists at all, but men of socialistic learnings. The excuse for not carrying out the order of deportation is that there are no ships sailing for Russia, though the Buford carried the cargo of reds, among them Emma Goldman and Al exander Berkman, without difficulty and the departments were quite will ing to put another transport at the disposal of the labor department for the same purpose. The paroling of reds or their re lease on insufficient bail, following the wholesale cancellation of depor tation warrants by Mr. Post has great ly handicapped the department of jus tice in its campaign against criminal anarchists. It was at first suggested that the department of justice should receive charge of the deportation business, but the incongruity of that branch being both judge and prosecutor in these cases was recognized. It seems to have become the policy of this country to make the labor de partment the seat of representation of unpopular political sects and there is curreut In Washington a rumor that Raymond Robins, the friend of the soviet, is to succeed Secretary Wilson in the event of Senator Hard ing's election. This is another rea son for the movement of transfer jurisdiction in the cases of anarchists and communists who subscribe to the doctrines of force, away from the de partment of labor. CROOKEDNESS IN '20 BALL RACE CHARGED Chicago. Charges that certain White Sox players regulated their playing this season by the scoreboard winning or losing in order to keep the betting odds favorable were made here by Byrd Lynn and Hervey Mctiellan, who said that as "bench warmers" most of the season, they had studied the players carefully and were convinced the Sox were "thrown" out of the pennant. "We lost the pennant because cer tain players they are among the eight indicted by the Cook county grand jury did not want us to win," said Lynn. "We soon noticed how carefully they studied the score board more than even the average player does In a pennant race and that they always made errors which lost the game when Cleveland and New York were losing. If Cleveland won we won. If Cleveland lost we lost. The idea was to keep up the betting odds, but not to let us win the pennant." McClellan said he was convinced certain players had deliberately "thrown" three games in Boston, on the last eastern trip. Prince Tries Suicide Constantinople.

And none in the room was more enthusiastic. CHAPTER XI. Thanks to the dexterity of his French chauffeur, Fitzhugh was at tacking his morning ninil at twenty minutes past ten. When running through the fourth letter of the heap his secretary had opened and laid out for him he paused suddenly, then sat violently back In his chair. "Now, how In Hades," wondered he, "could I forget that?" He meant the first million. While with Kathleen that morning the thought of it had occurred and re-occurred to him, but always at Inoppor tune moments, and when finally the right time had arrived It slumbered In the meshes of his mind. "I'll tell her on Wednesday," he con cluded ; and promptly was swallowed up In the rush of the day's business. The boy handed him a scrap of pa per on which was written with a lead pencil : "I must see you at once. Esther." "Tell her I can't see her!" and be crunched the paper between his fingers and shot It angrily out an open win dow. Before the lad reached the door he checked him, less harshly, with: "Explain to her, Tommy, that I am ex tremely busy, and ask her to call again." Dismissing the Incident completely from his mind, he gathered up the sheaf of letters. An altercation arose In the outer otlice. The door was flung open. Esther entered. Seeing the stenographer, she held the door open. "I want to see you alone, Daniel," said Esther quietly. Fitzhugh motioned to his employees to go, and closed the door after him. "Well? What is It?" He remained standing near the door, the sheaf of letters clutched with an Iron grip In his right hand. He was striving hard to control his mounting temper. Unbidden, she sat down. He did not resume his seat. There was an awk ward pause. "This may be the last time," she be gan, choosing her words carefully, "that we shall see each other. I am going away tonight. I enme all the way from Paterson. I thought I would tell you good-by." She stood up so that she faced him. She looked at him fixedly. "Night be fore last, Daniel, in Paterson, I walked tuy room for hours. I was try ing to decide something, Daniel. Something very hard. A secret a ter rible secret and I wanted to tell you. But I couldn't decide." "Have you decided?" Impatiently. "Quite. I shouldn't tell you. I have reasoned It out again and again. You shouldn't know. But I want you to know I And, Daniel" reaching up suddenly, she rested her bands on his shoulders, and when her large, sad eyes lifted to his It struck him afresh how like n martyr she seemed "Dnn lel, I have been chosen to remove our ambassador." He tensed, with a quick Intake of breath. "You mean what d'you menn? You're not you don't intend " "It is decreed he must die tomorrow. ill His living Is Inimical to the Cuuse. lie Is false to Russia." "And you Intend doing It?" "I will do It." He seized her wrists, gripped tliem till she winced. His voice was as steel when he said: "You shall not. Under stand that once for all. You shall not I It Is madness, Nothing less." "You can't understand. I hardly ex pected you to." He strode violently to the door to still somebody's knocking, then came back to her. "What price do you want? Name It!" She shook her head. "There Is no price." "I say there Is! Why else would you be here? Speak up I What do you want?" She lowered her gaze, a little star tled. "Yes, there is one for whom 1 would renounce even the Cause, turn traitor " She flung her arms out to him In a rush of abandon "Oh, Dan iel, you know, you know I" He loosened her hands from his neck. "That," said he, "Is Impossible. I am engaged to be married." She recoiled as though he bud struck her. Her foot struck a chair as she stepped back. She sat down very slowly. For a few moments she seemed stricken dumb. Then: "To to that" "To her you saw me with at the opera." "When?" she asked. "When?" "We became engaged last March. The second of last March." "The second of last March." She repeated the words dully, pressing her hand to her forehead. "The second of last why, D-Daniel, don't you remem ber? That is the day we first met each other. Don't you remember, Daniel?" laughing shrilly "the crowds, and how I was swept Into your arms, and the speeches you made, first In the street, and then " "Esther! Esther! Do you realize where you are? Twelve or fifteen persons are waiting outside to see me, and their time and mine means money." Her reminiscences trailed off Into silence. "Money I" Then all at once a terrific change enme over her. She sprang up tlger ishly, swept the chair aside, rushed toward the door. He was there first, however, and stood with his back against it, burring her way. "You will not leave this office," he declared, "until " "Open that door!" " until you listen to reason." "Open that door, open thut door! I'll scream !" "You may go when you've promised me " "Open that door!" Out of all patience, angry and hu miliated, he threw the door open, and saw her run the gaping gauntlet In the outer office. He closed the door quiet ly and summoned a messenger, llis nostrils were dilated, his face white, his lower front teeth were locked firm ly over the upper ones. He sat at his desk, took a pad of telegraph forms from a drawer, and with u hand as steady as the mahogany on which It rested he wrote the following, address ing It "Secret Service:" "A dement ed woman who imagines she has been wronged by the Russian ambassador will arrive In Washington from Chica go. Watch all trains for her. She Is slightly built, has dark hair and eyes and is dressed In black. II. D. F." Some while after five o'clock Fitz hugh sat at the telephoae on his locked desk, his hat on, an unllghted cigar be tween his teeth, delivering the custom ary order for violets. With a final ad monition to the florist to send nothing except the best, he "hung up." As he lighted his cigar and swung out of his office he met a messenger, who hand ed him a square envelope. Embossed on the hack was "One Thousand Lake Shore Drive," and It contained a very brief and formal request for an Im mediate call from him at that address. The chauffeur was waiting with the car in Adams street. Fitzhugh settled back comfortably in the cushioned seat as the chauffeur picked his way through the mass of traffic, and all the cares and worries of that busy day slipped gratefully from him, leaving him serene with contentment. He was received In the library of Mr. and Mrs. Otis. There was no sign of Kathleen ; and a glance at her pa rents sufficed to apprise him he was in for a disagreeable time. They re mained standing after he entered ; noi vyns he asked to sit down. Mrs. Otis, haughtily stationed as far from him as the large room would permit, had uppoluted herself spokeswoman. "Our daughter," said she, lifting a formidable lorgnette to her eyes and staring at him as though he were the garbage man, "has informed us of her unfortunate alliance with you." He bowed respectfully. "I need hardly say to you" and her head raised higher, her hauteur waxed stiff "that you must consider this en gagement broken. Furthermore, you will regard your underhanded ac By EDWIN BAIRD Copyright by P-G- Browne A Co. quaintance with oilr daughter as though It had never been. All com munication with her of whatever na ture must cease Instantly. That, I be lieve, Is all." If Mrs. Otis had expected to Inflict a shock she triumphed amply. If she had hoped to witness Its manifestation she was woefully disappointed. The crash struck Its victim us a thunder bolt; but beyond a sudden tension that gripped every muscle of him, he betrayed never a sign of the Impact. Outwardly he was almost If not quite as self-possessed as when he entered the house. "Miss Otis does she know this?" "What a question I" she gasped. "Why, It Is she who" "Don't!" He started forward Im pulsively, the blood mounting hotly to his face. But ere his eonqiosure de parted Irretrievably "I beg your par don. May I know the reason?" "The reason," she snld Icily, wish ing his discomfiture were more pro nounced, "Is disgraceful. Most dis graceful" lunging with the superla tive. "Today this very afternoon, in fact your I " She floundered helplessly In a muddle of words. The starched formality she had deemed sufficient to crush the presumption of any man wilted before his steady gaze, his calm sternness. She turned np peallngly to her husband, who, hav ing held a very unwilling silence at her prior behest, came gladly to the rescue. "I had best deal with this man alone, Elizabeth." He waited until she left the room; then he blazed at Fitz hugh : "Your wife, whom you desert ed, was here today." "The woman is not my wife." "Not your legal wife, you mean." "Nor any other kind." Scnrcely had Fitzhugh uttered the words, advancing with be knew not what rash design, then he stopped, turned back, and stood listening in tently. Otis, thoroughly alarmed, rang frantically for a servant, Fitzhugh crossed to the hall-door and listened. From somewhere above, unbridled and spasmodic, though faint by the distance, came the hysterical sobbing of a girl. Kathleen ! With an Imprecation on his tongue, he bounded up the staircase just as Noonan appeared In answer to the summons. His coat clutched from be hind, Fitzhugh turned, jerked free and, with a single push of his flat hand, sent the butler reeling backward to the hall below. He leaped up the few remaining steps to the second floor, strode to a door standing ajar and knocked. The girlish weeping in the room beyond was muffled. He knocked again. The sobbing abated, stopped. A third time he knocked and, receiv ing no response save silence, thrust the door open, entered, closed the door behind him. It was Kathleen's boudoir. She was seated in a chair, weeping, with her hands hysterically covering her face; but Immediately on seeing him she jumped up and started for an adjoin ing room, calling hastily to her maid. He Seized Her Wrists, Gripped Them Till She Winced. And the next instant she was held, struggling, palpitating, in the hot em brace of his arm, and his kisses show ered upon her lips with a delirious passion that seared as heated metal. "Kathleen sweetheart, you don't believe You don't vwint me to go She squirmed in his arms, striking at him with her fists, uttering incoher ent words, her face scarlet with shame. The note of hate In her voice cooled his madness. He released her. "So you do believe It." And he be came aware that her father, at his wits' end how to handle the outrage, was peltlug hlra with blows and kicks. He shook off the man as a Newfound land would a Pomeranian. (TO BE CONTINUED.) Contrary Means. "That doctor is very successful with Insomnia cases. How does he do It?" "I guess it Is by his wideawake methods."
