He also agreed that we should make a pretense of searching for the mysterious knife thrower. "As proof of our—er—devotion to duty, and for our own instruction, I think we should call on Captain Carey," he said. Other than the most formal handshake on our coming aboard in New York, neither Lynch nor I had held any communication with him. He did not take his meals, or fraternize, with the passengers. The louvered, varnished door opened. Carey peered out and showed no immediate disposition to let us pass. He was tall, broad- shouldered and lean-hipped, a brunet Irishman with small, unfriendly black eyes, a perpetually blue jaw and lank black hair. . "\Ve should like to have a talk with you, Captain," said Lynch briskly. "A matter of ship's business." Carey moved aside. His cabin was large and businesslike. The la.vish decorative 'ancles of the owner's and guests' sections of the ship did not reach here. There was a fixed table, tightly covered with ' a green cloth, in the middle of the stateroom. Captain Carey sat down at the head of it and .with a sulky nod \nclicated we were to join him. "I want to sec your crew list, Captain," tald Lynch. 'And by whose authority?" The black eyes which stared at us were hostile. "I need none. Though I will have the owner instruct you if you require it." By raising his crisp, flat voice, Lynch gave it added authority, almost a note of bullying. ''You know Mr. Peane's and my function aboard here. To guard against sinister incidents. Such an incident has occurred tonight" 'You're an Englishman, aren't you?" The Irishman's thin red mouth was stiff with hatred. "I am! And you, Captain, I take it, do not go ashore in British ports?"In the center of each of Carey's cadaverous and sallow cheeks appeared a bright red patch. "Or Irish, either?" Lynch snapped. • • • LIKE Wellington's remark about his Generals, Lynch may not have scared Carey, but he scared me. For a second I thought Carey would lunge across ttie table at his cool tormentor. "What hai happened?" "There has been a knife throwing. Fortunately, a miss. 1 will not trouble you with details, Captain. At least until I have talked with Mr. Sand. The knife, when used as a throwing weapon, is generally associated with the Mediterranean races. Have you any Sicilians aboard? Spaniards? Marscillais?" Carey got up, went to his,dcsk, unlocked a drawer and took out a brown leather loose-leaf ledc- er. He shoved it, open, acrou the table to Lynch. "See for yourself," he growled. Twenty-two men, counting offl" cen and the steward'i crew. Eleven nationalities. Two Nan- ten passport*. Three OUT OUR WAY WHERE'S. MA? I WAWTTOSMOW HER. THIS FIM6 kET£H.'

If the crew list—and the trim and shipshape cabins—were fair indications, this dark 'man at whose criminal record Lynch had so broadly hinted, was good at his job. "Very precise, Captain. Very precise," said Lynch approvingly. "You will be good enough to furnish me with a copy of this list. I note a' number of your men have been with you for some time. How long have you been with the Vittoria, Carey?" "Nine years. 1 * "As Captain?" "As Captain." That, I reckoned, would plac« the acquisition of Carey by the professionally neutral millionaire right smack in the middle of the Second World- War. "And Dr. Lund? I do not se* has name here?" . 'It's Sand's fancy to count Lund as a passenger. If he pays him, as I have no doubt, he attends to it himself, I have naught to do with it. Dr. Persen before him was the same." "Dr. Lund joined recently?" Carey dourly nodded. "He did. Dr. Persen was took sick all of a sudden. In Bremen. And .this Lurid chap just happened to be on hand." • • * LYNCH put a firm forefinger at » name in the book before him and ran U across the page"This Heitzig. Wilhelm Heitzig. Born Haniburg. Age 32. Signed on, I observe, the same year you did, Captain, A German. During the war. A deserter?" "That you ' will have to ask him." "I see," Lynch persisted, "Heitzig is carried on your payroll ai a 'watchman.' On » yacht, a vessel of this size, isn't it more cus- iomary to assign the duty of the night patrol to ordinary seamen in rotation?" "Sand, Mister, ie. not a usual man. Nor does he have usual ways." Carey cut his loquacity short. "It's no business of mine. Nor yours." - <T« I
