On this first day we gathered In the cool of the afternoon about our table for an event which .'of packing-boxe- s even I, whose role was that of skeptic, found exciting. Miss Browne was at last to produce her map and reveal the secret of the Island. So far, except In general terms, she had Imparted It to no one. Everybody, In coming along, had been buying a pig in a poke though to be sure Aunt Jane had paid for It, The Seotman, Cuthbert Vane had told me Incidentally, had Insured himself against loss by demanding a retaining fee beforehand. Somehow my opinion, both of his honesty and of his intelligence, had risen since I knew this. As to Cuthbert Vane, he had come purely In a spirit of adventure, and had paid Ills own expenses from the start. However, now the great moment was at hand. Bur before It comes, I will hpre set down the treasure-storof Leeward Island, as I gathered It later, a little here and there, and pieced It together Into a coherent whole through ninny dreaming hours. ' In ISa), the city of Lima, in Peru, (elng threatened by the revo'ut'em-nrle- s under Bolivar and San Martin, cautious folk began to take thought for their possessions. To iend them out upon the high seas under a foreign flag seemed to offer the best hope of safety, and soon there was more 'gold afloat on the I'ncific than at any time since the sailing of the great of the Seventeenth century. Captain Sampson, of the brig 'Bonny Lass, found himself with a passenger for nowhere In particular In the shape of a certain Spanish merchant of great wealth, reputed custodian of the private funds of the This gentleman ;iishop of Lima. ibrought with him, besides some scanty personal baggage for he took ship chest.

But sober history knows nothing of him until he reappears years later, an aged and broken man. In a back street of Bristol. Here was living a certain Hopper-dow.vho had been boatswain on the Bonny Lass at the time that she so regrettably lost her passengers overboard. He saw and recognized his old skipper hobbling along the Bristol quays, and perhaps from pity took the shabby creature borne with him. Hopperdown dealt In sailors' slops, and had a snug room or two behind the shop. Here for a while the former Captain Sampson dwelt, and after a swift illness here he died. With the hand of death upon hlrn, his grim lips at last gave up their secret. With stiffening fingers he traced a rough map, to refresh Hopperdown's memory after the lapse of time since either had seen the wave-beate- n cliffs of Leeward Island. For Captain Sampson had never been able to return to claim the treasure which he had left to Bill Halllwell's silent If he had, Indeed, guardianship. sailed with Bonlto, he had kept his secret from his formidable commander. Even as he had dealt with Bill Halllwell, so might Bonlto deal by him or at least the lion's share must be yielded to the pirate captain. And the passion of Captain Sampson's life had come to be his gold his hidden hoard on far-of- f Leeward Island. It was his, now, all his. The only other who knew Its hiding place, his former mate, had been killed In Havana In a tavern brawl. The secret of the bright unattainable treasure was all the captain's own. He dreamed of the doubloons, gloated over them, a ceaseless longed for them with gnawing passion of desire. And In the end he died. In Hopperdown's little shop In ' the narrow Bristol bystreet. Hopperdown, an aging man himself, and In his humble way contented, fell straightway victim to the o He sold al) he had, and bought In a sailing ship for Valparaiso, trusting that once so far on the way he would find means to accomplish the rest. But the raging of the fever In his thin old blood brought him to his bed, and the ship sailed without him. Before she was midway In the Atlantic Hopperdown was dead. The old man died In the house of a niece, to whom by way of legacy he left his map. For years the map lay among other papers in a drawer, and here It was at length discovered by her son, himself a sailor. He 'learned from her Its history, and having been In the Pacific, and heard the tales and rumors that cling about Ieward Island like the everlasting surf of Its encompassing seas, "this grand-nepheof old HopiMTdown's, by name David Jenkins, became for the rest of his days a follower of the Ignis fatuus. All his restless, hungry life he spent In wandering up and down the seas, ever on the watch for some dimly Imagined chnnce by which he might come at the treasure. And so at last he wandered Into the London hospital where he died. And to me tho wildest feature of the whole wild tnle was that at the last he should have parted with the cherished secret of a lifetime to Miss gold-viru- my "Miss Browne," I said, In . that Intervened before that great event bad already dwindled to minutes, to seconds But no; for Miss Browne arose and began to make a speech. The beginning of It dealt 4n a large and generalizing manner with ccmradeshlp and loyalty, and the necessity of the prop er mental attitude In approaching the business we had In hand. I did not listen closely. The truth Is, I wanted to we Hint liinp. Under the spell of the Island, I had nlmost begun to believe In the chest of doubloons. Suddenly I awoke with a start to the fact that Mlsj Brown was talking about me. Yes, I, Indubitably, was the Young Person whoso motives In attaching herself to the party were so at variance with the amity and mutual confidence which filled all other breasts. It was I who had uttered words that were painful ami astounding to one conscious of unlmpugnahle motives. In the day of toll .to come, we were reminded, the Young Person to wit, myself, would hove no share. She would be but skeptic, critic, drone In the busy hive. Thus It was obvious that the Young Person could not m rs to orate at this length merely to tell me that I am to have no share In this ridiculous treasure of yours, you have wasted a good deal of energy. In the first place, I don't believe In your treasure." ' (Which, of course, despite my temporary lapse, I really didn't.) "I think you are sillier than any grown-u- p people I ever saw. In the second place, anything you do find you are welcome to keep. Do you think I came along with people who didn't want me, and have turned my aunt against me, for the take of filthy lucre? Did I come In- tentionally at all, or because I was shanghaied and couldn't help myself Aunt Jane!" I demanded, turning to my stricken relative, who was gazing in anguish and doubt from Miss Browne to me, "haven't you one spark: left of family pride I don't talk of affection any longer that you sit still and hear me made speeches at In this fashion? Have you grown so sordid and grasping that you can think of d nothing but this pirate gold?" Aunt Jane burst Into tears. "Good she gracious, Virginia," walled, "how shocking of you to say such things.

"Have It your own way," I said, shrugging.

"Oh, I say!" broke out Mr. Vane suddenly, "I call this rotten, yon know I" "In case of objection by any person." said Miss Browne loftily, "the matter may be put to a vote. All those In favor say aye!" An Irregular fire of ayes followed. Mr. Shaw said briefly, "I think the distribution of the treasure. If any Is recovered, should be that agreed upon by the original members of the party. Aye!" Aunt Jane's assenting voice Issued from the depths of her handkerchief, which was rapidly becoming so briny and Inadequate that I passed her mine. From Cuthbert Vane alone there came a steadfast no and the Scotchman put a hand on the boy's shoulder with a smile which was like sudden sunlight In a bleak sky.

On appeal to the business men and chambers of commerce of the country to actively support the program, Joseph E.

Both Mr. Defrees and Mr. Gompers are members of the conference and assisted In drafting the emergency program. Mr. Defrees called npon the business men to offer the mayors In their communities immediate assis tance, in order to speed up the establishment of employment committees on r national basis. "The situation cannot be met without proper organization," he said. "It Is primarily a community problem. The existing unemployment presents a real problem which must have Immediate attention." American labor, Mr. Gompers declared, would give Its "whole-hearte- d support" to the emergency program, which, he said, provided an opportunity for the cooperative action of all the agencies and institutions in eaca community to .bring relief to the un. employed.

League Blockade Committee Holds Do. tails of Applying Barrier Cannot Be Determined In Advance Geneva Details of applying the economic boycott for any member violating the regulations of the league of nations cannot be decided beforehand, the blockade committee of the assembly reported Monday morning. It proposed that the council of the league suggest a plan. The committee held that Interruption of diplomatic relations should be begun with the withdrawel of heads of diplomatic missions.. In proposed resolutions It was provided that certain states, in case of special danger to them, might be released from blockade obligations. Before the blockade committee resolutions are voted on, it Is expected that an effort will be made to obtain a rote abrogating the rule requiring unanimity, as It believed a unanimous decision on committee recommendations Is Impossible. In nddltlon to resolutions Interpreting the covenant of the league, the committee proposed an amendment to article 16 of the covenant, which provides for united action against a state violating the agreement The amendment follows: The council of the league will give an opinion whether a broach of the covenant has taken place. When the council gives such opinion, the votes of states charged with having committed a breach of the covenant and of states bringing the charge, whether they are members of the council under article 4 or have been specially summoned, shall not be reckoned In determining whether or not there has been a unanimous decision." Another proposed amendment reads: "The council may, In the case of a particular member, postpone the coming Into force of any of these measures for a specified period where It Is satisfied such postponement will facilitate the attainment of the object of the measures to be applied, or that It Is necessary In order to minimize the loss and Inconvenience which will ba canard such members." This amendment Is proposed to satisfy the Scandinavian members, who demanded exemption from the blockade obligation should the measure be Dplled to neighboring states.
