THE TECHNICIAN WRITES ME

lovers used to stroll on summer evenings had become unbearable. But Mouchel was living in a Seventh Heaven.
`To be deputy and mayor!' lie said to me. `What a fine career! Each day brings some extraordinary incident. I believe you once thought of being a novelist? Oh, if you could observe the stories that I see! Listen, this very morning I was called to the Municipal Prison. A man had just hanged himself ... He was still warm ... And why had he committed suicide? I started an inquest immediately ... It's fascinating. Hein? ...'
Some disturbing rumours began to circulate through the city. Not only did the gasworks function badly but, it was reported, it did not meet expenses. The unhappy Mouchel had unsuspectingly given jobs to all his campaign workers. A certain sly and artful Norman named D., who was a weaver in the Blin mill and one of the leading socialist politicians, had been made director of the gasworks in recompense for ill-defined services. He was incompetent, like most of those employed in the enterprise. There was no money in the tills. The town had borrowed two million francs to pay the costs of construction; it would have to borrow anew in order to continue operations. Then the Prefecture protested: it could not authorize the new loans. Was the town of Elbeuf going bankrupt? One morning when we arrived at the mill the watchman said in great excitement to my father:
`Does Monsieur Ernest know that Mouchel has killed himself? ...
I hurried to the town hall. The body was still on the floor awaiting the coroner. The deputy-mayor had spent the night in his office, bringing his accounts up to date; then at dawn he had come downstairs, had got out his big, reserve-officer's revolver and had put a bullet through his head.
His secretary, a nice young man who was devoted to him, told me amid tears that on the day before the mayor had said repeatedly:
`I was mistaken ... I must pay the price. ...'
But the sacrifice of an honest man makes up for nothing. This was a triumph for the conservatives who had been predicting disaster from the beginning of the enterprise:
`Just see what socialism leads to!' they said.
Alain, who sent an article from Paris each day to the Rouen Dispatch, wrote a beautiful funeral eulogy on Mouchel: `In this occurrence at Elbeuf,' he said in substance, `we have nothing to regret, nothing to take back. To draw from the death of a just Man arguments against his creed
