Tammany Ncurs End of Political. Trail • "Tammany Hall has become Itio national symbol of all thut is crooked, .slimy, imiwtviolic, a'«t sinister in politics. . . ." These words tomu not from any impractical political rcfivmor or theorist, but from Jeremiah Titus Mahoncy —former Tammany district lender and judge, who had the backing of thu Wigwam in his recent -tmsticccKst'ul campaign for mayor of Now York City. What doc-.s a statement like llii« mean? «)«sl, this. Evnn men who have I'iscn to power and prominence on the Tammany 'band-wagon are -beginning to' realize what the rest of the country has believed for years—that Tammany Hall no longer is representative of the Democrats of New York. Tammany must go, Mahoney <le- ,clures. The name must he dropped; -'headquarters must lie moved away from the famous Hall; every vestige of Tammany must vanish, oven the rules under which it operates. Such words must sound like heresy to .'ionic of the laeders of the organi- ''zillion which ruled the nation's largest city for so many years. As long as Tammany had power, it could—and did—ignore the recurring rumblings of displeasure, the rcpeal- . crl charges of graft and corruption, the protests against crime and racketeering which flourished under it.s regime. Now .that it is shorn of,power, nolh-' ing is, left. It stands unmasked i'l'qv, just what it is—an ineffective, discredited political organization which lias been unable to elect its candidate. 1 , for city offices even in a predominantly Democratic metropolis. Mahoncy never spoke truer words than when he said that the mime Tammany means political corruption to most persons outside New York. That has been the case for years. To the average voter, Tammany typifies all that is sordid in machine politics, and the wonder has been that New York voters put up with it as long as they did. Now a veteran Tammany politician —albeit one who often has fought its leaders—declares it must be wiped off the political map to make way for an organization which will more nearly represent I he Democratic voters of New York. It must have been a wrench for Ala- OUT OUR WAY -honey to make that assertion, for he owes his political prominence to his .start under Tammany banners. He was a 1 close friend, almost worshiper, of the late Charles V. Murphy, Tammany boss, lie was a Tammany district leader and was appointed Supreme Court judge by Al Smith on Tammany's recommendation. Jle fought Murphy's successors~ OIIJT.V, Dooling, and Sullivan—but his light was never against Tammany; only against its leaders. Now, however, he is convinced Tammany must go, and his condemnation ):•, all the more impressive because of his record. Thinking voters all over (lie nation will wish him success in lii.s campaign to abolish all that Tam- maiiv has .stood for. a/ Ottt&id, Publication In Ihls column of eilllorlals Irom other newspaiicrs does not necessarily nean endorsement but Is nn acknowledgment of Interest In the subjects crtscussed.

"J couM use a girl at the camp. Old Pop Wallers is the only one in thc office now and has work than lie can handle since the job's in full swing. You'd be doing me a real favor, Miss i, if you'd like lo try it." Connie thought how fmc it was of iiim to put it that way. She said she would like lo, very much. Thanks lo Uncle Tippy, she was prepared for an opening like this. He had seen to it that his niece had acquired sufficient business training that would enable her to understand and handle her large inheritance. "Of course it's rather u rough place for a girl." Bret spoke a shade dubiously. "Though I promise I'll look after you. Tibu can room at Mrs. Parson's in thc vil- '1 hilts Uic tn> u ble. I write .such swell love letters i can'l' lage. Everyone calls her Aunt mail them—she might take me seriously." THIS CURIOUS By William sFerguson s j Bertha," lie added, his eyes twinkling. "You will, too, after you've sampled her biscuits and corn bread." "I don't know how I can ever thank you," she said, her blue eyes shining; she had discarded the inevitable dark glasses now that there was loss fear of recognition. This was going to be an adventure such as she had nevci- dreamed would come to her. "I don't know why you should do this for me." When they arrived at Charleston the following day Bret hired an automobile for the 100 mile trip to the little town near which lie was building his bridge. He explained he had driven his own car dowii south to leave with his loiks for the winter. "Now we're getting into real country," Bret said, later on. "See those big hoys looming up hi the distance? They're the Shenan- rioahs; GOOO feel, some of them. Feel the difference in the air? Take a breath and fill your lungs. It will wash away all your troubles, make you nc\v once lore."

You'll be as free as the birc\s that have the whole heaven for their own." "How did you know," she asked, 'that freedom is what I want more than anything, a chance to try my own wings for awhile?" 'Isn't that what everyone wants? Though after you've tried them you'll be glad to fly back to your nest—and your sweetheart—again." "No." Connie shook her head, took a deep breath of. the air that, as he had told her, seemed to wash all tha past away, making her reborn again. "I don't believe I'll want to go back. Certainly not because of any one person! When I do, perhaps I'll always wisli I could return—as you have." She did not know then, either, how true her words would prove. * * * |?RET said lie thought they had better stop at the McCallys 1 cabin, which they would reach soon, to get warm and have dinner. It would be dark by the time they reached their destination. Already it was growing dusk. The cabin, like mbst of those they had passed, was built of logs, cemented with mud, but inside it was neat and clean. The old couple welcomed Bret as though he were a relation, though like the people in tlio hills, they did not make a show of emotion. " "Pis well you're getting back," Ihe old man said with that easy drawl that fell so sweetly on Connie's unaccustomed ears. "Things ain't been going too likely without you, Mr. Hardesly. I hear tell some of your men walked out on old Pop Walters. The lazy loafers. Though I reckon it won't take long for you to whip 'em back to harness." "I reckon not!" Bret laughed, but his dark eyes were troubled. As soon as they had eaten he said he thought they had better "push on." The old man told them there had been a heavy snow higher in the hills. "Wouldn't surprise me," he added, "by the looks of them clouds but what we was due for more. Maybe you'd better let us put you up for the night, Mr. Hardesty." Bret thanked him'for his hospitality, but refused it. "That is," he looked at Connie, "unless you'd rather not risk it?" "I'd much rather go on," she hastened to assure him; she knew that was what'lie wanted.i -.:.,:The old people shook-hands witli each of them, wished them a safe journey. Then the woman said, her small eyes in her face, as wrinkled and weather-beaten as the man's, lighting up with interest. "Would you mind my asking? You ain't bringing home a bride, be you, Mr. Hardesty?" * # # "A tion Then he laughed. "Why, no. Miss Blyn is going to help with the books. She'll live at Mrs. P;ir- BRIDE! Bret looked startled, as though the sugges- were sheer impossibility. "Reckon she'll put on a few pounds then," Mrs. McCally said. ., 'And 'tis just as well, cause I know of at least one heart as would be broken." "So! You must have a swcet- leart, too—since you accused mo of one, Mr. Hardesty," Connie said after they were on their way again. "Indeed I haven't," he returned Jromptly, the color spreading up into his dark face, however, "All that women think of, it seems, is romance." "Maybe the day will come when you'll find it's worlli thinking about," Connie predicted. She supposed there had not been much iime for romance in his busy life. Yet she liked that about him. "I hope it never does," he said darkly; then his scowl deepened. That is snow ahead. It'll be coming down on us before long." Evei> as he spoke the big flakes started lo fall; before long the windshield was thick with them, the road and hills covered wilh a clean white blanket. "It's beautiful!" Connie exclaimed. "I didn't suppose it could be so beautiful, or change so quickly." Bret said it was pretty enough, but he hoped the road would remain passable. "You mean we might not be able lo get through tonight?" "That's it exactly." TlieV were just creeping along now, so slippery and steep was the road. It was impossible to see more than a foot or two ahead. "I shouldn't have risked it with you," his tone was contrite, "But I love it!" Connie assured him. There was something dangerous and primitive about this storm here in this wild country that appealed lo her. She had known so little of lhat sort of experience in her hothouse existence. "Please don't turn back. I'm not the least bit afraid." She knew, as she said it, lhat she would never he afraid to face anything .with him. , As though to force thc proof of this thc car skidded then suddenly, sickeningly. .(To Be Continued) •Firticutiirly. whereas e.specinllv exercise may do so.
