Mayor Edward Stone was a tall man*'With tufts of gray hair over each of his protruding cars, bald otherwise. His large horn-rimmed glasses perched on his beak, of a nose, and gave him a bira-of-prey expression. Ho was tall and thin; and his body stooped ag if it had learned early in life the necessity of dodging overhead objects designed .for people of lesser statue His brown yes once seen without the distorting barrier of lenses, erased c ntlrcly the vulpine idea, They were deep set understanding and combind with the lines In his face to give an impression of sympathy, of knowledge of the crisis which life held in store for everyone who lived. Firsthand knowledge gained bitterly. Obviously Stone was trying to place Jim. They shook handb while Early was Retting a "nothing new" report from the operator. Early said, "This is a break for us, Mr. Mayor, Havin? Dunn here, I mean. He helped nr. ^out before on a murder case. Maybe he can help agnin," "A policeman" "Private detective,'" Jim said and tried ,to keep all dofcnsivdnbss from his voice. Stone Said, "I see." He want on quickly. "We'll be glad of all the help we can get. But I hope to be Rafale to get in touch with Lieutenant, Richards to take charge." "Pleape—no," Nancy, i,aid. "Let him haVp a little time at'lciaet," ;S|one smiled at",lhe girl. "We'll see t I appreciate your ides, your thoughts of others. Frankly, I do npt know, mqch abput "'hat happened.' I only arrived here a few moments ago ngysclf. Sergeant Early, I believe you have been mope or less In charge" "Abput the way to put it," Early admitted. '"pood," Mayor Stone said brisk ly. "Let's go in an office where we- can sit down." It was perhapp inadveittnt that the office chosen was that of Chief Drover, Nancy made no objection n o sound, She did look up :il Jim as he helped her with a chair and her eyes.were huge in her drawn face. Early got right to business. "As you know, Mayor Stone, the minute I got in touch with you, I was told to coma hero and take charge. I'd already started things, and I had managed to got a few facts from the sce,ne of the prime.' I'll try to give them to you " Apparently "Chief Drover had driven'directly downtown from the wedding reception. He hud parked his car, where it had later been found, in the Holt Block, and h walked north on Holt Avimuc. A triple bill of horror pictures was being featured at n -.matinee at the: Nugget' Theater, with the doors to; open at 1:45. There was a large crowd, of young peopln, and two men had appeared suddenly and begun throwing out candy to the crowd,' Descriptions of these two men varied a little to size ' but the general idea had bee i simUar. The men, who wore loose concealing smocks, were also outfitted in crude wigs of coavso yarn under conical hnts. Their features were distorted by the long, protruding teeth described variously as from one to three inches in length, They both \vorc- yellow gloves, and they m&c!e curious noises and hideous grimaces at t na crowd while distributing the candy. The cashier, of course, had joined in the general belie f that this was a.publicity stunt, although she admitted she thought it odd the manager had not mentioned it to her. The manager himself, when finally reached at the -reception, denied any knowledge of such a stunt, but was presently being held for further questioning. Chief Dnvver had had difficulty friaking his way through the pushing crowd. The two "monsters" Obliged by tossing out handfuls of Candy so a path was cleared for him. In fact, they formed a gibbering escort for him, and everyone had a good laugh. No one,saw the actual attack. Chief D r c v e r stopped moving abruptly. Any outcry he might lave made A-;.S chokcil completely by the noise of the yoimg people. He staggered a few steps, turned partway round and fell to the side walk. His fall, as well as the commotion caused by the candy scram- stcrs." A crowd hnd gathered around the fallen man at once, but it was some little time before! anything serious was suspected. The single stab woufirt had bled hardly more than enough to dampen the dark cloth of Drover's suit. According to a first examination by Dr. Pardon the murder weapon was something in the nature of an ice pick. Every available man on the force had been called out. The neighborhood was being combed painstakingly. So far no one had been found who had noticed escape of th'e two men.
