It is understood iv Washington that
the senate will iass promptly the
emergency {appropriation required for
the Panama canal work It can de
cently do no less.
The public conviction is growing
that the senate blumlered iv compell
ing tne country to committ itse fto
tne Panama enterprise But the con
vici ion ought to be equally clear that
this blunder cannot be helped by baek
iug out or stopping to quarrel over de
The only possible way to make good
the' Pinama blunder is resolutely to go
ahead witli the work there with all
possible speed and at whatever [ cost
and atone for tbe follies of the past
by the success of the future.
If the bookkeeping ou the canal
work is not all it should be—if here
and there sinecures have been created
on it or too high i»y given—if there
has been extravagance or waste or loot
—if congress has been asked to put
too much trust in personal honesty un
verified by proper vouchers—these are
details which can ba corrected without
pausiug in the work on the canal.
Tbe recent wrangling in congress
andjthe administration over details of
canal work is rediculous. It is boys'
play indulged by grown men, which
holds the American republic up be
fore the world as destitute of govern
mental sense.
Stop the nonsense and build the
canal That is the demand of the
American people. Build the cans'.

Sir Henry Morgan,
Author of "The Southerners," "For Love
of Country," "The Grip of Honor," Etc.
Synopsis of Preceding Chapter
Sir Henry Morgan, former pirate, having
purchased immunity and knighthood
from the king of England, has reformed
and has become vice governor of Jama
ica. He is deposed and, killing the offi
cers to arrest him, determines to
become again a freebooter. Benjamin
Holingold, ex-pirate, who has been bit
terly wronged by Morgon, joins the for
tunes of the latter in order to seek an op -
portunity to wreak vengeanoe on him.
Having recuited a crew of ex-pirates and
other desperadoes, Morgan seizes an
English frigate and murders, her crew
Off for the Spanish coast in search of
treasure. In a desperate action, wherein
are shown the daring and resourseful
ness of Morgan and the courage of his
men, he defeats two Spanish frigates
and captures their convoy, a treasure
galleon carrying an abbess and priests
as passengers,
Morgan was a bold and skillful mar
iner, and he held his course parallel
to the land much longer than was pru
dent. Hi' was loath, indeed, to a ban
ilon even temporarily a design upon
which he had determined, and as be
had rapidly run down his southing in
this brief cruise his determination had
been quickened by the thought of his
growing nearness to the Pearl of Ca
racas until for the moment love—or
what he called love—had almost made
him forget the treasure in the ship be
neath his feet, for the Pearl of Cara
cas was a woman.
Mercedes de Lara, daughter of the
viceroy of Venezuela, on her way
home from Spain, where she had been
ut school, to join her father, the Count
Alvaro de Lara, in the vice regal pal
ace at St. Jago de Leon, sometimes
called the city of Caracas. In the fair
valley on the farther side of those tow
ering tree clad mountains—the cor
dilleras of the shore—had touched at
Jamaica. There she had been received
with tine honor, as became the daugh
ter of so prominent a personage, by
tbe vice governor and bis wretched
wife. Morgan's heart had been In
flamed by the dark, passionate beauty
of the Spanish maiden. It was only
by a severe restraint enjoined upon
himself by his position that he had re
frained from abusing the hospitality
he extended by seizing her in the old
buccaneer fashion. The impression she
had made upon him had been lasting,
aud when he found himself alone, an
outlaw, all his dreams of the future
centered about this woman.
He would carry out tiie plans which
he had outlived to his men. but the
Pearl of Caracas, for so Donna Mer
cedes was called, must accompany hjiu
to the south seas to he the island queeu
of that buccaneer empire of which he
was to be the founder. That Donna
Mercedes might object to this proposi
tion, thut she might love another man,
might even be married by this time,
counted for nothing in Morgan's plans.
He had taken what he wanted by dint
of bis iron will and the strength of his
right arm in the past, and he should
continue the process in the future.
Consequently he was most reluctant
that morning, for his passion had in
creased with each o'errun league of
sea. to bear away from La Guayra,
which was the port of entry for Cara
cas. P.ut even his ardent spirit was at
last convinced of the necessity. It was
blowing a gab? now. and they were
so near the shore, although some dis
tance to the eastward of the town, that
they could see the surf breaking with
tremendous force upon the strip of
sand. The officers and older men had
observed the course of the ship with
growing concern, but no one bad ven
tured to remonstrate with Morgan un
til old Ben tlornigold as a privileged
character finally summoned bis courage
and approached him.
"Mark you shore. Captain Morgan,"
he said, and when he made up his mind
he spoke boldly. '"The wind freshens.
Never had that villain appeared
to better advantage
We're frightfully uear. Should It come
on to blow we could not save the ship.
You know bow uuseatuanly these Spun
tab bulks are."
"Kight you are, Hornlgold," answer
ed Morgan, yet frowning heavily.
"Curse this wind! We must claw off,
I suppose."
"Aye, and at once!" cried Hornigold.
"See, the wind shifts already! It blows
Btraigln froui the north bow."
"Hands by tbe braces there!" shout
ed Morgan, following, with apprehen
sion, tbe outstretched finger of the old
boatswain. "Ease down the helm!
Brace up! Lively, lads!"
In a few moments the great ship, her
yards braced sharply up. was beaded
out to seaward on the starboard tack.
The wind was now blowing a whole
gale, aud tbe masts of the ship were
bending like whips.
"AVe'll have to get sail off her. I'm
thinking, Horftigold," said Morgan.
"Aye, aye, Mr, r.n.l golckf
"Aloft," yriicl Morgan, "and take in
Hie to'galkmt sTsI ( lose reef the top
B is and double reef the courses. theiiT
The snaking shrouds were soon
ercu with masses of men. and as tht
ship was exceedingly well bandied the
canvas was promptly snugged down bj
the eager crew. Elornigold, with young
Teach to assist him, went to the helm
Morgan gave his persona] attention tc
the maneuvering of the ship, and thf
oilier officers stationed themselves
where they could best promote and di
rect the efforts of the seamen.
Thus during the long morning they
endeavored to claw off the lee shore.
Morgan luffed the ship through tht
heavy squalls which rose to the vio
lence of a hurricane with consummate
skill. Absolutely fearless, a master of
bis profession, he did all with that
ship that mortal man could have done
yet their situation became more and
more precarious. They had long since
passed La Guayra. They had had v
fleeting glimpse of the shipping in the
harbor driving helplessly on shore as
they dashed by under the gray clouds
which had overspread the sea. That
town was now hidden from them by n
bend of the coast, and they found
themselves in a curious bight of land
extending far into the ocean in front
of them. The moumaiiis here did not
so nearly approach the water line, and
from the look of the place there ap
peared to be a shoal projecting some
distance into the ocean from the point
ahead. Some of the buccaneers whe
knew these waters confirmed the Indi
cations by asserting the existence of
the shoal.
11l spite <if nil that Morgan could do
It was quit"' evident that they eouid
not weather the shoal on their present
tack. There was not sea room to wear
and bear up on the other tack. The
vessel, in fart, like all ships in thosi
days and especially Spanish galleons,
had a tendency to go to leeward like a
barrel, and only Morgan's resourceful
seamanship had saved them from the
fatal embraces of the shore long since
The canvas she was carrying was more
than she could legitimately bear In
such a hurricane. If there had been
sea room Morgan would have stripped
her to bare poles long since, but under
the circumstances it was necessary fot
him to retain full control and direction
of the ship: so. although he reduced
sail < > the lowest point, he still spread
a liitlo canvas.
The men were filled with apprehen
sion, n.it only for their Uvea, but for
the treasure they bad captured, for
they stood about a hundred chances t
one of losing tbe ship. Kadi squall
thai swept down upon them was hard
er thau the one before. Each time the
vessel almost went over on her beam
ends, for Morgan would nol lull until
the last moment, since each time that
he did so and lost way temporarily he
found himself driven bodily nearer the
land. The men would have mutiuioJ
hail it not been patent to the most stu
pid mind that their only salvation lay
in Morgan. Never had that villain
appeared to better advantage lhan
when he stood on the weather quarter
overlooking the ship, his long gray hair
blown out iv the wind, righting against
a foe whose strength was not to he
measured by the mind of man for his
life and his ship.
Hornigold and Teach, grasping tne
wheel, assisted by two of tbe ablest
seamen, were steering the ship with
exquisite precision. Sweat poured from
their brows at the violence of the la
bor required to control the massive
helm. The meu lay to windward on
tbe deck or grouped iv clusters around
tbe masts or hung to the life lines
which had been passed in every di
rection. At Morgan's side stood Vel
sers and Raveueau, prime seamen
