that sincere welcomed Mumtaz into his house, he was forewarned, of course by the members of the conspiracy now exposed and justly penalized, by several anonymous letters, which too he simply threw into his wastepaper basket, and determined to ' cling fast and faithfully to a faithless strumpet.

         In conclusion, we can only cast a tear of pity on the most tragic end this voluptuous youth met in an adventure, Which thought satisfied hts amorous and luxurious nature to some extent, at last victimised him in a manner not improbable in matters of such character. If we were not forbidden to talk ill of dead.we would surely have been justified to remark that in cultural scales poor Bawla was too trivial to justify he encomiums heaped on his grave by the Pro-lslam Journal Bombay Chronicle, and others of its feathers 

 Let us open the doors of the third chapter and vllat the conspirators were doing there.

  CHAPTER III

 The Whys And Hows of The Conspiracy

            “ Conspiracy is unmitigated evil. No beam irradiates its Egyptian darkness; no smile lights up its masked and monstrous visage. It is the practice of demons –sometimes, alas ! in human shape, and the scorn of all honest and lovimg nature.’’

  No Government,  whether British or Indian, could be said to be immune from the danger of conspirators. In British India the dens of conspirators have kept the C. 1.

In British territory, “unrest” is devoid of any meaning nowadays. It has lost all its serious aspects and can easily be manufactured by an ordinary journalist with but a few strokes of his pen. If the Satyagraha campaigns of Mulshi and Nagpur be taken as sure signs of some serious unrest, we are driven to the

 Conclusion that there are not less than two thousand conspirators scattered broadcast amongst us. Are not all the Satyagrahis still seething with unrest? Are they not foaming and fretting within themselves for the entire extinction of the Satanic British Raj from this land? Did they not want to break down the government machinery by their nonco-operation and its pet instrument the Satyagraha? If this is true of British territory, no more substantial excuse is necessary to. create unrest in Indian States. There it is the right of an ordinary convict to develop himself into a ‘Hater of the Rajah’ and make
