Grievance Against His Bosses

Stockholm. By Mail to the Asso

ciated Press). Legislation in Sweden
against drunkenness and consequent
heavy taxation on liquor and beer has

resulted in very prices for alco

hoi of every kind. So much so that
smuggling of drink into Sweden has

developed all along the coast, and it
i3 asserted that about 5,000 gallons

from the Baltic are landed and sold in

Sweden every day.

Recently a German ship was said to

be anchored outside territorial waters
with' a cargo of spirits for sale. In
order to establish the truth of this

alleged rum-running, the correspond

ent of The Associated Press decider

upon a personal investigation. With
a friend he embarked on a six ton cut

ter for this German boat, which was

expected off Sandhamn, and after

pleasant sail in the moonlight came

up with the vessel which was riding

at anchor with the usual lights show


On hailing the vessel we were re
quested to go aboard and were re

ceived cordially by the captain. "Just

waiting for somebody else," he said

"but you are very welcome anyhow,

Asked down to the cabin, the visitors

explained they were neither buyers of
alcohol nor in the service of the cus customs,

thing something first hand about selling spirits

on the high seas.
The captain was a young German,
about 30 years old. "You take me for
a smuggler," he said, "or bootlegger
out for business beyond the law, but
you are quite mistaken. My name is
Ludwig Wolff, formerly of the Ger German

cannot bear examination, and would
not for anything in the world infringe

business with me. I can offer you the
purest and best whiskies, English and
American at about $1.25 a quart. I

krone a bottle, and many thousand
bottles of German brandy."
Wolff, referring to himself, explain explained

navy when the armistice was declared,

and on hearing of the liquor trade
with Norway, he decided to join in.

ganized in Hamburg by big capita

cheap and Scandinavian currency very
big, so although we sell much cheaper
than do registered dealers ashore, the

He added he expected to get rid of
his present cargo within a week and
return for more. He made ten trips
last year to Norway, and with the

vicinity to create a new county with

Hastings the county seat, threatens
to stir up a hornet's nest of protest

in Putnam county. It develops that
proponents of the plan not only want
to slice off a part of St. Johns county
to create the, new political division,
but they also want a part of Putnam
county. East Palatka, San Mateo,

In the soft slushy silt
In a slow river's bed,

Of promiscuously beating

By the terms of the contract each
contract holder pays to the company
$10 per month on his contract until
such a time as he receives a loan of
j S1000. At the date of the loan there
i enaorsea as paia upon same mt;
full amount which the contract holder
has paid to that time; contract holder
then repays to the company the
amount remaining due on the loan in
installments of $7 on the principal on
the first day of each month, plus an
amount of interest equal to one one-twelfth
twelfth one-twelfth of the interest for the year
or the amount remaining due at the
beginning of each year at the rate of
three per cent per annum.
The first or initial payment, to together
gether together with the first three payments
on the contract and 10 per cent of the
next five payments, go into the gen general
eral general fund of the company. All other
payments made by the contract holder,
including interest, go into a trust
fund, out of which loans are made to
contract holders m the order of prior
ity, determined by the date and hour
of the application. Thus when $1000
has accrued in the trust fund the
holder of contract No. 1 (provided he
has already paid to the company ten
payments) is entitled to a loan of
Contract No. 1. If 140 contracts
are issued in August 1922, contract
holder No. 1 will get a loan of $1000
in December 1922, after paying $100
to the company as follows:
August payment $ 10.00
September payment 10.00
October payment 10.00
November payment lO.Od
December payment 10.00
Additional payment to qualify
for loan 50.00
Total $100.00
He will give the company a mort
gage for $1000 and there will be im
mediately endorsed thereon as pay
ments $100. He must then repay the
remaining $900 in monthly install
ments of $7 per month on principal,
plus one-twelfth of one year's inter interest
est interest at 3 per cent, on the money re
maining due at the beginning of each
year, lis nrst payment, made in
January 1923 would therefore be $7
on principal and one-twelfth of three
per cent of $900, which equals $2.25,
making a total of $9.25.- Following
out the payments as required by the
contract he will have fully paid the
loan in September 1933. This bor
rower will have paid a rate of inter
est slightly in excess of three per
cent, due to the fact that interest is
computed at three per cent on the en
tire balance remaining due at the be
ginning of each year while as a mat
ter of fact monthly payments of $7
per month are made on principal. In
other words., the company has the use
each year of $7 of the borrower's
money for twelve months, $7 for elev
en months, $7 for ten months and so
or down to one month, upon which the
borrower is paying the company three
per cent, that is, the borrower is pay
ing interst upon his own money while
it is in the treasury of the company,
j ftp interest amounts to si.3o per
year, or a total of $14.50 during the
entire life of the loan and the bor borrower
rower borrower is therefore paying $14.50 more
than the interst on his loan would
amount to at three per cent. It should
bp borne in mind also that in addition
to this the borrower paid $100 before
receiving the loan and that the com company
pany company had the use of that money for
a short period of time. It is therefore
clear that the holder of contract No.
1 will pay more than three per cent
for his money.
Contract holder No. 1 is the most
favored of all and he could be a mem member
ber member of the company.
Contract No. 50. There will be a
sufficient amount in the trust fund to
make a loan of $1000 to the holder of
Contract No. 50 in December 1925. At
that time this contract holder will
have paid to the company in monthly
payments of $10 each, 41 payments
aggregating $410. He must give a
mortgage for $1000 adequately secur secured
ed secured as provided by the contract and
there will be immediately endorsed as
paid thereon $410. The remaining
$590 is to be repaid in monthly install installments
ments installments of $7 per month on principal
plus one-twelfth of one year's inter interest
est interest at three per cent on the total
amount due at the beginning of each
year. This loan will be fully paid in
January 1933, and the borrower will
have paid as interest $71.32. This bor borrower
rower borrower will have paid a rate of interest
in excess of -three per cent due as in
the case of contract No. 1, to the
manner of computing interest on the
full amount due at the beginning of
the year. In case of contract No. 50,
this amounts to a total during the life
of the loan of $9.52. The borrower
paid $10 per month for 41 months for j
which he has received no interest. The
interest on the payments made by him
to the company before receiving the
loan computed at four per cent com compounded
pounded compounded annually would amount to
approximately $30.50. The contract
holder therefore pays for the loan of
S590 the following amounts:
Interest actually paid under the
contract $ 71.32;
Interest on the $7 monthly in- j
stallments mentioned above.. 9.52!
Value of the use of contract
holder's money paid to the
comuany before loan (4).. 30.50
Total ...$111.34
The company receives the equiva equivalent
lent equivalent of $111.34 as interest on a loan of
$590 which is amortized in 84 months.
This is an equivalent to 5.4 per cent.

Contract No. 100. Following the
same method of computation, we find
the holder of contract No. 100 will get
his loan in April 1929, after having
paid 81 payments of $10 each, aggre aggregating
gating aggregating $810. He then gives a mort mortgage
gage mortgage for $1000 adequately secured
and there is immediately endorsed
upon same as payment $810. As the
company has already received from
him S810, it is in reality loaning him

only $190 of its own money. This loan
will !e fully repaid in July 1931, 27
months after its date, and the bor
rower will have paid for the use of
the money the following:
Interest actually paid under the
contract $ 9.40
Interest on the $7 monthly in
stallments mentioned above. 3.06
Value of use of contract holder's
money paid to the company
before loan (4) 118.96
Total .....$130.96
This borrower has therefore paid
an equivalent of $130.96 for a loan of
$190 amortized in 27 months. This is
an equivalent of 61.2 per cent.
Contract No. 121. The holder of
this contract will get his loan of $1000
in October 1930, after having paid to
the company 99 payments of $10 each
or $990. As he has already paid the j
company $990 and receives a loan of
$1000, the company is actually loan loaning
ing loaning him only $10 of its own money.
This loan will be repaid in full in two
months and for the use of this $10 for
two months the contract holder will
have paid in equivalent of the fol following:
lowing: following: Interest actually paid under the
contract Negligible
Interest on the $7 monthly in installments
stallments installments mentioned above
Value of the use of contract
holder's money paid to the
company before loan (4). $184.72
Total $184.72
No attempt is made to compute the
rate which this borrower is paying
when he pays an equivalent of $184.72
for the use of $10 for two months.
Contract No. 122. The holder of
this contract will not be able to get
a loan from the company as he will
have paid to the company 100 pay payments
ments payments of $10 each, or an aggregate of
$1000 by November 1930 at which
time there will be a sufficient amount
in the trust fund to return to him his
$1000 without any interest and with without
out without any loan being made. Had this
contract holder deposited his money in
a savings or other bank or invested it
in other securities bearing four per
cent interest, it would have yielded
him an interest income of $184.83. He
has therefore paid the company an
equivalent of $184.83 for which he has
received nothing.
Contracts Nos. 123 to 140 inclusive.
These contracts will mature consecu consecutively
tively consecutively between December 1930 and
April 1933, the last named date being
the time at which the contract No. 140
will mature and there will be sufficient
funds in the trust fund to repay to
the holder thereof $1000. The holder
of contract No. 140 will have paid 100
payments of $10 each and 28 months
after making the last, payment will
receive from the company $1000. If
this borrower had invested at four per
cent instead, the interest accrued
would amount to $298.49. He hrs

From the foregoing analysis it will
be seen that a contract holder who i&
so fortunate as to obtain contract No.
1 of a series will in all probability ob obtain
tain obtain a loan at an interst rate slightly
more than three per cent per annum,
while the holder of contract No. 50
will be required to pay interest at the
rate of slightly more than five per
cent per annum. Thence as the con contract
tract contract numbers become greater the rate
of interest increases by leaps and
bounds until we find that the holder
of contract No. 100 is required to pay

at the rate of more than 61 per cent

As stated before no promise is held
out as to when a fellow will get his
loan after he goes in no doubt the
agent will tell him he will get it
"soon" on account of the volume of
business, but it should be remembered
only one in a hundred can get a loan
each month and his turn is dependent
upon chance and the best that can be
hoped for in a lottery scheme is the
average, nd the average time in this
gsfme of chance is fifty months a lit little
tle little over four years! A nice time to
have to wait when a fellow is in a
hurry for his money.
This is not a new idea. It was tried
out in England and failed and was
prohibited by an act of parliament as
far back as 1984 and I have been told
that it was given a trial in this coun country
try country some years ago and went the way
of all such schemes.
The big attraction is cheap money
and with this feature kept dangling
before the eyes of a prospective bor borrower,
rower, borrower, everything else is lost sight ol
until he is hooked.
He must pay regularly or he is fined

After considering the contracts of
a number of companies and informa information

am convinced that it is far safer and

part to get the mine pumped out without
cost to himself or Fairchlld, and the men
take it as a good joke.
iraircmia could not restrain a laugh.
There was something about the man,
about his nervous, yet boyish way of
speaking, about his enthusiasm, that
wiped out suspicion and invited con confidence.
fidence. confidence. The owner of the Blue Pop Poppy
py Poppy mine leaned forward.
"But you didn't finish your sentence
about the writer of that card."
"You mean oh well, there's noth nothing
ing nothing to that. I'm in love with her. Been
in love with her since I've been knee knee-high
high knee-high to a duck. So 're you. So's every
other human being that thinks he's
a regular man. So's Maurice Rodaine.
Don't know about the rest of you
but T haven't got a chance. Don't let
it 1 ther you. 'The problem right now
is to get your partner out of jail. How
much money have you got?"
"Only a little more than two thous thousand."
and." thousand." "Not enough. There'll be bonds on
four charges. At the least, they'll be
around a thousand dollars apiece.
Probabilities are that they'll run
around ten thousand for the bunch.
How about the Blue Poppy?"
"I don't know what it's worth."
"Neither do I. Neither does the
judge. Neither does any one else.
Therefore, It's worth at least ten thous thousand
and thousand dollars. That'll do the trick. T'd
suggest now that you get up, seize your
deeds and accompany me to the palace
of justice. Otherwise, that partner
of yours will have to eat dinner In
a place called in undignified language
the hoosejrow !."
Soon Fairchlld was dressed and
walked hurriedly up the street with
the voluble attorney. A half-hour
more and they were before the court,
Fairchild, the lawyer and the jail-worn
Harry, his mustache fluttering In more
directions than ever.
"Not guilty. Your Honor," said Ran
dolph P. Farrell. "May I ask the ex
tent of the bond?"
The judge adjusted his glasses and
studied the information which the dis
trict attorney had laid before him.
"In view of the number of charges
and the seriousness of each, I must fix
an aggregate bond of five thousand
dollars, or twelve hundred fifty dollars
for each case."
"Thank you; we had come prepared
for more. Mr. Fairchild, who is Mr,
Harkins' partner, is here to appear as
bondsman. The deeds are in his name
alone, the partnership existing, as I
understand it, upon their word of hon
or between them. I refer, Your Honor,
to the deeds of the Blue Poppy mine
Would Your Honor care to examine
His Honor would. His Honor did
For a long moment he studied them,
and Fairchlld, in looking about the
courtroom, saw the bailiff in conversa
tion with a tall, thin man, with squint
eyes and a scar-marked forehead. A
moment later, the judge looked over
his glasses.
" "Bailiff!"
"Yes, Your Honor."
"Have you any information regard regarding

"Bond Accepted I'll Set
This Trial
the judge passed the papers to the
clerk of the court.
"Bond accepted. I'll set this trial
for November 11."
"Very well, Your Honor." Then he
turned with a wide grin to his clients.
"That's all until November."
Out they filed through the narrow
aisle of tin eourtrtom. Fairchild's
knee brushing the trouser leg of
Squint Rodaine as they passed. At
the door, the attorney turned toward
theni, then put forth a hand.
"Drop in any day this week and
we'll go over things," he announced
cheerfully. "We put one over on his
royal joblots that time, anyway. Hates
me from the ground up. Worst we
can hope for is a conviction and then
a Supreme court reversal. I'll get him
so mad he'll fill the case with errors.
He used to be an Instructor down at
Boulder, and I stuck the pages of a
lecture together on him one day. That's
why I asked for an early trial. Knew
he'd give me a late one. That'll let us
have time to stir up a little favorable
evidence, which right now we don't
possess. Understand all money that
comes from the mine Is held in escrow
until this case is decided. But 111 ex explain

and bask in the effulgence of really

And he turned back into the court courtroom,
room, courtroom, while Fairchild, the dazed Har Harry
ry Harry stalking beside him, started down
the street.
'"Ow do you figure It?" asked the
Cornishman at last.
"Rodaine. 'E 'elped us out!"
Fairchild stopped. It had not oc occurred
curred occurred to him before. But now he
saw it: that if Rodaine, as an expert
on mining, had condemned the Blue
Poppy, it could have meant only one
thing, the denial of bond by the judge
imd the lack of freedom for Harry.

"And especially since his son is the
accuser and since I got the best of
them both last night!"
"Got the best of 'em? You?"
The story was brief in its telling.
And it brought no explanation of the
sudden amiability displayed by the
crooked-faced Rodaine. They went on,
striving vainly for a reason, at last to
stop in front of the post office, as the
postmaster leaned out of the door.
"Your name's Fairchild, isn't it?'
asked the person of letters.
"Thought so. Some of the fellows
said you was. There's been a letter
for you here for two days!"
"For me?" Vaguely Fairchild went

and sentences which blurred for a mo moment,

"Mr. Robert Fairchild,

Harry whistled long and thoughtful thoughtfully.

"An awful lot, Harry. But why was

Then for a moment, as they stepped
out of the post office, he gave up the
thought, even of comparative riches.
Twenty feet away, a man and a girl
were approaching, talking as though
there never had been the slightest
trouble between them. It was Maurice
