While waiting for Marshall Rick, ard reads a report on the ravages of the Colorado, despite the efTorts of Thomas Hardin of the Desert Reclamation com pany. This Hardin had been a student under Rlckard and had married Oerty Holmes, with whom Rlokard had fancied be waa in love. CHAPTER n— Marshall tells Rlckard the Overland Pacific has got to step In to save the Imperial Valley and sends him to the break.

CHAPTER lll—Rlckard journeys to Calextco, sees the Irrigated desert and learns much about Haraln and his work. CHAPTER IV—At the hotel he meets Mr. and Mrs. Hardin and Innes Hardin.

Estrada, a Mexican, son of the "Father of the Imperial Valley," tells him of the general situation. CHAPTER Vl—Rlckard attends a meeting of the directors and asserts his authority. Hardin rages. Estrada tells Rlckard of his foreboding that his work will fail. "I can't see It finished." CHAPTER Vll—lnnes Is discovered In her garden. She tries to cheer up Hardin, who is furious aaalnst Rlckard. CHAPTER X—The Hardin dinner to Rlckard discloses further, the family chaHj. acterlstlcs. Hardin Is surly and sulky. Innes !■ hardly polite. Gerty plans a "progressive ride" In Rlckard's honor. CHAPTER Xl—Rlckard encounters the Insubordination of the company's engi neers. He Is stirred by the Indians' state ment that this Is the hundredth year of a cycle, when the Great Yellow Dragon, the Colorado, grows restless. He makes various preparations, pushes work on the Calexlco levee and Is ordered by Marshall to "take a fighting chance" on tha completion of Hardin's pet project, a gate to shut the break In the river. CHAPTER VIII—A family luncheon of the Hardlns which throws lltfht on them. CHAPTER IX—-flardln discovers that Rlckard is planning a levee to protect Calexlco and puts him down as Incom petent.

CHAPTER XV-Hardln motors off with a load opdynamlte, leaving everything In confusion on the levee. Innes, througn a friendly engineer, Issues ordera In her brother's name, to save her brother's face.

Innes finds Rlckard and Gerty together and begins to suspect her sister-in-law. Her brother's wrongheadedneaa and Rlck ard's evident efficiency only ssrvs to em bitter Innes against Rlckard. CHAPTER XVIII—The river washes away half- of Mexican. Calexlco's Mexi can twin city, but Calexlco still stands. CHAPTER XIX—A stormy public meet ing Is held In which representatives of the settlers, the Overland Pacific and Mexico claah. A telegram from Rlckard that the river haa broken out again saves a big row and forces united action bx all. Downstairs, Babcock's gavel rapped unheard. Behind the excited figure wielding the stick, sat Marshall, his unreadable, sweet smile on his face. His eyes were on Babcock, who was ralnly clamoring for order. "Program '.hat meeting." _ - Holllster was trying to make him-"* K>lf heard to Barton over two rows of leats, but his voice was like a child's >n an ocean beach. Barton wan sur rounded by eager anxious men. The mdlence bad split Into " circles of larangulng centers. It was Impossible :o get attention. Hardin could see Mar ihall ptill Babcock by the tails of his ;oat. Unwillingly, be could see Bab rock allow the crowd five minutes by lis consulted watch. Then again, the favel danced on the table. Marshall was still smiling. Babcock's shrill folce split the din. "Order." The >cean of voices swallowed him again. "We won't let them in," Grace was mellowing, "the valley won't stand for V * "Take your medicine," thundered •he big organ of Barton. "I warned rou, Imperial valley." "Betrayal," groaned the crowd. Down In the orchestra. Barton was loldlng a hurry-up meeting of the wa ter companies. De la Vega bad itepped back and was consulting with Tod Marshall. Babcock pulled out his watch, his pivel calling for attention. This tiroa le was beard. De la Vega approached the foot- Igbts, a questioning look on his face. "We ask for a little time," began Barton. Instantly the house was on ts feet. "Withdraw the suits. tllva lira your answer. Give hltn our an rwer. We don't want the Service. Ths ralley don't want the Service. Wlth lraw the suits." Barton's moon face looked troubled. •We can't answer for all the rancher*." "Yin, you can." screumed Grace, jumping up and down like a baboon. 'lf you don't, I'll answer for them. Don't you see. It's a trick T It's a Tick. I see the hand of the O. P. In •his." Friendly hands pulled him down nto his seat. The audience was chanting, -with !raw tJWL iulta._ .Jakg. your medicine. —Don't lose the concession.—Lord, . the Service!—Olvp them the answer low." Barton held up a withered hand, rhe undeveloped body was dignified 5y the splendid head. "Don't with lraw yonr concession. I think I can jay that Mexico will not be sued." Again, the shont went tip. "Answer ike a man. Think 1 Good Lord I Sny ire withdraw the salts!" "We withdraw the claims against Mexico." Barton sat down to a sud- Jen bush. The first blood had been et Once more Babcock's glasses swept 'Jie house. He rapped the table. "That's not all. We've got more to toy to you. Gentlemen, Mr. Marshall." Marshall stepped forward to a si lence which was a variety of tribute. He bowed. "I will be brief. Mr. ' Faraday has asked me to take his place here this afternoon. It's only fair. If It were not for my interfer ence, lie would not be Involved In this situation. I think yon will grant that It Is Mr. Faraday's company which can save the valley?"? "To save Its own tracks!" yelled a voice from the balcony. - I Marshall sent a soft smile heaven ward. "Incidentally. And its traffic. Why don't you say It? We don't deny that. The Overland Pacific's no altru ist." There was a Jeer which rose Into a | chorus. "Altruist 1 Octopus. That's j what It Is." Marshall's hand went up. "If you ' want to hear me?" He waved away Babcock's descending gavel. "I was told it would cost two hundred thoa- j sand dollars to close that break of yours. Do you want the actual fig ures? It has eaten already a million, and the work is not yet done. You know the history of the undertaking. The Desert Reclamation company wi.s In straits. Faraday promised his help on the condition that the affairs of the Desert Reclamation company would be controlled by his company. He took the control. He inherited— what? Not good will. Threats, dam age suits. Do you think that snow slide of complaints is going to encour age him to go on? This Is what I came here to talk to you about You ranch ers don't want to cut your own throats. Now, there's a gftod deal going on about which you are in the dark. I Faraday's got a right to feel he's shouldered an old man of the sea. He's been trying to dislodge It. He's appealed'to the president. Ever since we came Into this, the cry from Wash- i Marshall's Voice Rang Out. Ington has been, Do thin the way we like, or we'll not tufce It oft your hands.'" A murmur of angry voices started somewhere, swelling toward the balcony. "We don't want the government—" began the rising voices. Marshall's voice rang out: "But the government wants—youl Unless you will help save your own homes, the government will have to. In time. It's got to. Up there at Laguna, have you seen It? There's nothing go ing on. They're watching us. That's a useless toy If our works are washed out.. Faraday says this to you—" Not a sound In the stilled house. "Unless you withdraw your damage suits, he won't -advance another damned cent." Sharply he sat down before the au dience realized that bis message was finished. The house had not found Its voice, when Babcock's gavel was pounding again for attention. The question, he felt, had not been pot to them completely. Perhaps, they did not gather the fall Import of Mr. Mar-v shall's message. Mr. Mac Lean would follow Mr. Marshall. Mac Lean's superb figure rose from a tree-paneled background. "He should sing 'Brown October Ale,'" suggested Brandon to Hardin humorously. Hardin's eyes were on Mac-Lean. What did he know about It? What coald he tell those men that they did not know? Mac Lean was a figurehead In the reorganized Irrigation company. Wby hadn't they called on him, Har din? He knew more about the Involved history of the two confpanles than the whole bunch on the stage down yon der. He could have told them, he could have called on their Justice, their memory— Mac Lean was speaking. "Mr. Marshall has likened the river project to the old man of the sea. He ha* It on bU back, while It U badly kicking him In the xhlnx! "Mr. MarnhnJl ban given you Mr. Faraday * message. He ban naked you to dismiss your damage nulla. I ask yon to do more than that. Pat your hand* In your pockets! Come out and help as. Too don't want the government. I am told that Is the sentiment of the valley. When you called to them, they wouldn't help you; they wouldn't give you an ade quate price. Congress will soon be adjourning. What Is Mr. Faraday to say to Washington? Is he going to close that break? That depends on you. Withdraw your suits. Do more. Stop fighting against us. Flgbt with . - GRAHAM, N. C., THURSDAY. MAY 15, 1919 The' audience stirred ominously, angrily. Before Mac Lean was done, a voice screamed from the balcony. "Yon can't quit Test's s threat You're in too deep. You can't fool us. You've got to snve yourself. You've j got to go on. Tell Faraday to tell that I to Washington." The' uproar was released. Black, from tbe Wistaria, Jumped on his chair. "I am speaking for the valley. We can't help. You know It We're stripped. We're ruined. You think to threaten us with the government—if , wo wait for tbe government to decide, the valley is gone—and the railroad's i money with it I tell you, your bluff won't go. We want justice. We are going to have Justice." "Justice!" came from the surging ranchers, ''Fair play," yelled Black. "You can't trick us. We were not born yesterJuy. We have rights. The company brought us here. What did we give our money for? Desert lnnd? What good is this land without water? We bought wa ter. Give us back the money we've put In—that's what we're asking for. We won't be scared out of our rights." | There was a growling accompanl ' meiit from the back rows, herding to gether. "Order," cried Babcock, thumping his gavel. "Let Mr. Black have the j floor." | Black had not stopped. Wildly his j bands cut the air. His speech, though high-pitched, had a prepared sound) It worked toward • climax. He gave Individual instances of ruin. "Grace, Wlllard Grace, his crop gone, his place cut In two. Holltster and Wilson of the Palo Verde, the ranch a scream ing horror. Bcores of others." He vdould not mention his own case; and then he Itemized his misfortunes. Par* rlsh, his place scoured beyond all fu ture usefulness. What had they corns Into the valley fort Who hod urged themT There were pledges of the D. R„ water pledges. That was all those ruined men were pleading, the redemp tion of those pledges. Individual ruin, what did It mean? A curtailing of lux uries, of personal Indulgence. "I tell you. It means food, bread, potatoes; milk for the babies; or starvation." Black had touched the deep note. This was the answer. This was what I they wanted to say. I "Ton ask us to help you, os, we who are taxed already to our breaking point Ton say your company won't go any further. What does that help mean to youT Poverty? A few thou sands, a million to the O. P., a cor poration, what does a loss mean to them? Poverty? I tell you, no. A smaller dividend, maybe, to whom? Yes, to whom? To the men who live In Flftti avenue, whose wives are dragged about In limousines. With draw their suits? Help Faraday, And ruin men like Parrlsh? Men of the valley, what la your answer to Fara day?" The crowd was on its feet, swaying and pushing. The air was fetid with breaths. Wilson's crowd hud forgotten it* lorgnettes. "No," yelled the ranch ers. "We say, no." A boy made his way from the wings, • yellow envelope In his hand. Babcock waved him on to Marshall. The andlence was crying itself hoarse. Babcock lost control of the meeting In that minute of turning. Holllatar, of the Palo Verde, was striving W be heard; Babcock's hammer sounded In vain. But Marshall's eye had caught a spark from the' yellow sheet. 'He ■prang forward, throwing the dispatch toward 'MauLean. His excitement ciaight the eye of the crowd. "The river 1" There was a sudden hush. "The river's out again I" A groan ■wept through the house, there waa a break toward the doors. Marshall's voice halted them. "Men of the valley." The audience, swayed again, listened. "Hear me. The riv er's running away again down yonder. This Is a message from Blckard. It's broken through the levee. It's started for the valley. Now, who's going to stop it? Can yon? Where's your force, your equipment? Who can rush to that call but the company you are hounding? I gave you Faraday's mes sage. His hand's on the table. Not another cent from him nnless you withdraw those snlts. Yon aay you have given me your answer, Black's answer. Now the river plays a trick. It calls your bluff. Shall we stop the liver, men of the valley? We cAi. Will you withdraw yotir suits? You cnn. What Is your answer now, Im perial valley?" The scene broke Into bedlam. Men Jumped to their chalra, to the velvet rim of the boxes, all talking, scream ing, gesticulating at 'once. Th» Yellow Dragon was never so fearfully -visual ised. Out of The chaos bf men's voices came n woman's shriek, "For God's sake, save our homes." It pitched (he panic note. "Save the valley t Stop the river!" Marshall's Indian eyes were reading that mass of scared faces as though It were n sheet of typed paper. "Barton." he called through the din. "Where's Bart on r Two rant lifted Bnrton's pony fig ure upon their •boulder*. Hl* vibrant voice rolled above tbe aboutlng. "The valley withdraw! It* aolta agalnat the company."

The German delegation to the peace congress declares that it will nign the peace treaty, but that Germany will not pay an Indemnity. Congressman Drane recently took up with the government authorities the matter of securing a more Inten sive patrol bf the Florida coast by the coast guard for the prevention ol smuggling operations, and requested that steps be taken at once to this end. As President Wilson will not be present at the opening of the special session of congress on May 19, he will cable bis message from Paris, and It will be read Immediately after con gress convenes.
