At about 4 p.m. of  the first day, the boy saw his father  on the mountain side and he told  him to go to camp and prepare  supper as he would be home shortly.  That was the last the boy paw of  him. It began to snow shortly  afterwards, and the lad stayed in  cau.p alone, and was brought- home  to Vaidez by a .passing .boat the  next day. The whole count-y *>ns  scoured1 by neighbours after this  but no trace was found of the missing man, the case in most respects  resembling that of Geo.

"I has been -hearm' 'bout new issues  ( fur de last year.   "When I warned Sam-  '   ' 'uel    Shin    agin  sit tin' up nights  to learn big  words'to git off  at the wood-  yard next day  ho pleaded new  issues.  "When, I ad;  ' wised Waydown  Beheo to keep  to work at a  dollar a day an'  let ward caucuses ' run deir-  selves, ho^ Hung  new' issues at  inc till 1 had to  'run away.

"It wasn't two weeks-ago dat I went  '   ober to.-Samuel   Shin's  house  to  find  ,his chillen cry in' wid hunger an'  his  ' ole woman weepin' wid grief, while he  au'. Kurnel  Cabiff  was  off somewhar  hu'ntin' fur new issues.  -  "Oh. yes, I'ze hearin' 'bout new issues fur a long time past, an' <ie time  has now arrove. when I propose io take,  a<hand in. I agree wid dese new issue  men3" dat old issues am dead, but I .'kin  -remember all 'bout 'em..  "I kin"remember when no man Iibin'  dared charge a political candy date wid  burglary-, arson an' highway robbery. t  "I kin remember when de man who  jumped up an' wanted a nomination  kase he had, money to push a campaign  took a tumble as soon as ,ho began to  holler.  . "I kin remember when dar. was no  sicli word as 'divy' among officeholders. If a city ordered a sewer or������a  sidewalk dari was no risin' to demand  20 per cent from de contractor.  "Once upon a time in dis kentry we  had men who couldn't be bought an'  BKOTHEE GAEJDNER.  called 'em so long as cley got de cash.  "Yes. de old issues have vanished, an'  we have got now issues in deir place.  It's what dey call progression. In do  old days an officeholder who stole .?100  lost his good name an' went to prison.  Under dis new deal he steals $10,000  an' is looked upon as a good candydate  fur a higher-office.  "I don't know what de people of  America am gwine to do 'bout it,-but I'  am gwine to speak a few' words fur  myself. We'am gwine back to 'old ideas  in dis yere Limekiln club, an' we will  start in dis worry night. I'ze cot a Ueeo  suspicion dat Jim weed Johnson aiu  comin' to iue arter de meeiin' is ober to  git me to go security fur his rem.  Brudder Johnson is a new iJsue' man.  He's left ,'off work to shout polities.  He'd better not cum. If he does he'll  want three porous plasters 'fur his back  befo' daylight.  "Nine different members of dis club  owe me borrowed money. It has been  bor'ryed on do new issues idea���������borry  when yo' kin an' payback when yo'  must. If dat money ain't in my pocket  befo' noon tomorrcr I'll sot out an' wol-  lop nine men as fast as J cum to 'em. -  'J "Do treasurer of dis club am Way-!  dowu lichee. His accounts haven't bin  audited for three months, but dey are  gwine to bo v.-idin twenty-fo' hours, an'  if he am a defaulter to de, amount of  eben 2, cents his heart will be made to  ache fur do next year.  ���������"Brudder Giveadam Jones was swell-  in' round de odder day,-an',tellhiMvhal  he 'spectcd.to git if a sartin man -was  .Tccted  to  office.

We want newness, but  we want integrity. We want progress,  but we don't want' embezzlers 'an' defaulters.
