Let it be understood that the intervener did not present the aspect of a hero.
A struggle ensued which ended in the intervener being flung with such violence on the kerb stone that he was temporarily stunned.

Immelan took no notice of the intervener, except that for a single moment the muzzle yawned in the latter's face.
Consultation is only agreed to on conditions which must defeat its object, and terms are arranged with the intervener.
