standing by him on tha street. Ha had last
seen him in Chicago. -
"I spoke to him." declared Mr. Funk.
"It was on Pennsylvania avenua and I waa
waiting for a car. , He crossed the street
as I did and when I got on tha car, he did
so. I asked him to alt by ma.
" 'Tou are back on tha Jobr I said.

" 'How do you ynjuy It 7' I asked him.
' 'Am not proud of my work,' he said.

telling him I did not think much of the
detective business and that ha had better
get Into some business that had a future.

NEW YORK, June 17. Customs officials
are seeking today evidence that may bring
to light every phase of the Jenkins $300,000

at nearly 12.000.000 were smuggled Into this
country. Two and possibly more customs
officers are said to be In the plot, which
had Its Inception several years ago. Theae
officers received. It Is said 1100 for every
trunk they passed with only a casual In
spection. The New Yorker not only was

became In this way obligated to him.
There will be no compromise In the Jen

matter. The federal prosecutor is still con
sidering the cases of a prominent western
manufacturer and a southern coal operator
