CHAPTER I - Beginnings of a Bull-fight

`Insolence!' said Kate loudly. `Insolence!'
She glared at the fat back in the shoddily-fitting black coat, which looked as if a woman dressmaker had made it, with loathing. How could any man's coat-collar look so home made, so en famille !
Villiers remained with a fixed, abstract look on his thin face, rather like a death's head. All his American will was summoned up, the bald eagle of the north bristling in every feather. The fellow should not sit there. - But how to remove him?
The young man sat tense with will to annihilate his beetlelike intruder, and Kate used all her Irish malice to help him.
`Don't you wonder who was his tailor?' she asked, with a flicker in her voice.
Villiers looked at the femalish black coat of the Mexican, and made an arch grimace at Kate.
`I should say he hadn't one. Perhaps did it himself.'

So this was a bull-fight! Kate already felt a chill of disgust.
In the seats of the Authorities were very few people, and certainly no sparkling ladies in high tortoise-shell combs and lace mantillas. A few common-looking people, bourgeois with
