Justice Evens Account With Death Salesman They say thai old Sir Basil ZaharolY lived the' last years of his life in mortal terror of dying alone. He • iiad-a doctor and a servant by him j constantly; never, never would lie be ' alone,- lest the angel of death slip in past, the -J.gUavds which his millions lnvd hi red "and-lay its icy llnml on llis heart-when there was no one by to help. • ' But in the-end he did not get his wish. Death', came upon him when he was alone, after all, and; when his minions could gel to his side, it was too late. He departed from-this life just its he, ami every other m,ortal, has to begin-the. next one—alone. II is not .hard to understand why he feared loneliness in the presence of death. For if ghosts ever stalk abroad to visit a pour sinner's deathbed—if the past ever gives up phantoms to point silent, accusing fingers during those last dark moments—they must have been present around Zaharoff's deathbed. For hero was a man who, more than . any other who can be called to mind, built'his life upon the deaths of other men..- The men who were killed so that he might be rich would form a tremendous . arrity, if their shadows could come buck from the warrior's Valhalla to pass in review. Could any man who knows what hpman fear is, who knoSvs-hy.wMt feels-, H,,-tof'have the hackles rise, when.-(he* 'cold wind blows in from outer darkness—could any such man go willing' ly to his death in solitude, knowing that the armies of the world's martyred soldiers were waiting there to accuse him? No. The-old man's terror is under' stanclablc. And it is a t solemn reminder that there is such a thing as jiistice in this world, after all—that the ledger of human effort docs attain a fair balance, in the end, in spite of all that a man can do to gloss • over his defalcations. On the surface of things, old Zahnr- ' off had the world licked. He carried .the gospel of complete selfishness to almost -supernatural heights, and he - ' got away with it. With the legendary sailor at the 'measkit, he could say, "Blow you, Jack—I got mine." He sold death to all the world, profiled by- blood and agony whose aggregate is OUT OUR WAY beyond comprehension — and became rich and honored thereby. But in the end, we have to pay for everything we gel in this world. Zaharoff paid in terror—terror of the dark, of the black angel who would some day come in past his servants, his-doctors, and his guards and deal with him as his own engines of death had dealt with a 'million soldiers. What that terror must have been like, to live with all those years, to have at one's elbow like a hideously grinning specter, is something for the imagination of a Poe. Thinking of it, we can only say that Xaharoff did pay for what he got, after all—paid for it right to the hill. The humblest soldier who died on the wire, and saw death coming and screamed in mortal terror of it, had a belter end 1 than Sir Basil Zaharoft, who sold death over the bargain coun- tcr-^ant!. lived in grisly fear of it. —Bruce Cation.

Firing the last cartridge in his pistol alter Ihe vague shape ot the robbers' car, Ihe policeman who had responded to the alarm shouted an order to the crowd in general to call foi reinforcements from the station house, and ther looked wildly around lor a car to give chase. A limousine was approaches from the direction ol the railroac slattoti and the officer jumped int its .path, gesluring commandingly McDougall, having met Mrs. Osborn al Ihe door of the store ii which she had been shopping, ha( just escorted her to her own ca when the commandeered limou sine rushed past, the policeman winding down the'window of th door at his side and reaching in his belt for moia cartridges. "Lei's go after them 1 ." criec Dorothy excitedly. Mrs. Osborne surprised Me Dougall by assenting eagerly, an they scrambled into the old car the arlist vainly warning ihenr that there were bandits and gun play ahead. In Ihe commandeered car th .policeman was shouting direclioh to a uniformed chauffeur. •^Straight down io Shore' ; Roa'd! Kc'fyeiiod.

A quarter of a inile way, running without lights hu* islble in the glow.of the streel amps, an automobile was speed ng away from the town. '"That's them!" shouted the po- iceman.

Pier Planned^ for •, Mexico's Paciiic Port ; ACAPULCO, Mexico (UP)—This ancient port of the Manila galleons, Mexico's only deep water harbor on the Pacific, is goin American. Along the beach where rich cargoes from the Orient once were landed, engineers are. busy : with transit and tape, planning a plei that can accommodate the 600- foot ships of the Panama Pacific Hue which recently made Acapulco a port of call between Calltornia and Ne\v York. . . Choice of a site for the pier-has engaged the attention of engineers and of Mexico officials for several weeks and conferences have been held with American steamship officials. Recently Admiral Yancy S. Williams, commanding the U. S. Navy special service squadron based at Panama, -when here on a courtesy visit, was invited to Inspect the sites proposed. P. V. G. Mitchell, New York steamship executive, also has inspected the harbor, as well as L. E. Archer, San Francisco steamship traffic expert. II Is understood that the views of these visitors have been laid before President Cardenas. Bret Harte in his posm ' "The Lost Gallspu" predicted that Acapulco would awake In 1941," after three centuries of waiting.
