He wrote on laboriously.' He tiftcate already. But that did not account for his being here in the 'Java sen, and for those six Chinamen. He hud been fourth officer of the ToKanmru when thoy had touched at Shanghai a few weeks. ago. She was a fine ship, the Toka- | raaru, the biggest passenger liner In the fleet—only a fourth officer's pay was very small. He had met Captain ^litchell of the Updo ashore there, and Captain' Mitchell had persuaded him to ship as first mate on the Up'olo for d'ouble the pay he had been getting. The Upolo. of course, traded through tlio Jar:! 'and Banda seas—that was what his father had meant by the East—touching at Shanghai as a port of call in a liner wasn't the same thing. How^ that sun burned through the awning! It seemed to stab nnd drill into his skull with little shafts of "s- quisite.puin. He could get awtiy from it, of course, by going below into the cabin, by putting the -deck betweei. him and that torturing ball of lire, but in the cabin one couldn't brer.lhr. One couldn't live in the cabin—Captain Mitchell was there and Captain Mitchell was dead. Had Captain Mitchell anytiiing tc do with those six Chinamen? Or any thing to do with Drink-House f-nra in Singapore? And where was it those six Chinamen had jbined—at Stutnghal like himself? . If he could remember that lie would know whether Captain Mi'tch'oll had had a hand in the cursed game. Hadn't Johnson said something . abour ne"n hands? But then native crews were everlastingly shifting about. It was o Iqng way from Singapore to Shanghai. 'Who was this Drink-Hnusr Sam' What . was it Ting Wall hart saidi " Sam—-him know."

This, he said, was due. a a "new con- ception'of democracy,", requiring-that the principles of political flemoc- . racy be ' taken into the -industrial j fle'lfl. The conference report, he said. I did not meet-.this. ' . i The conference likewise, he said, hart failed "to use trade unionism ns a basis for collective bargaining;" did not provide any principles on which to base settlements and had recommended regional methods of dispute settlement rather than Industrial boards in each industry.

Wallcn, first mate." He read the words aloud, ami nodded his head again. It was true, quite true. When that .damnable' sun that was tormenting him through the awning was gone, that would be the end of today uu.cj'lie would be dead.
