It's me •wipe o! an uncle." "That I disbelieve," Naish said. "If half of what you say is true, your uncle will, finish the yqyage ID irons." _ Mr. Wilson stood stiffly 'and a bit sullen at the mainmast .foot. •Lisbks like stores ha 1 been broached, sir," he said. "The little brat has been peddlin' grog to the hands most o' the night." -«And you didn't stop him?" Naish said. '.,,-. ..-,:-. "Rnnie and me.was ouj.on the platform all night You're master of the vessel, sir. I ain't". Blageen was prone in his bunk and so drunk that he didn't rouse when Naish called 'Mriv' then •lapped him »nd Ranked his halt. "Want me ter UM me knife on •im?" Alfy'salA "Stick it-uhder his big t« nail «nd he btllers proper." "We'll let that wait," Naish Mid. He clowd and locked the door. Alfy frightened him a bit. T i boj 'wasn't poM«scd by evil; he was evU itself. Mr. Wilson sprawled on a corner of the main cabin settee, Mr Francis on the other. Nais^p gave them a -checrful smile. ^"Xoq . know and 1 know," he said, "that no sailor is responiible for hit debts under the law.' It's also easy to .eitablish .,that Blageen would never^ trim a tailor and that thlt lot wt haw aboard hare caiMon wltlioat moliw in their •acktu." \ BY ROBERT CARS« ' "What's your point?" Mr. Wilson said. "That Blageen sold his grog for cash, and you two supplied the cash." Naish reached for the log book and flipped it to the day's page. "You might have succeeded and robbed the men without my knowledge. But you paid cash to Alfy for his uncle. The men signed some sort of chit th^t put. them in your debt. At the end of the voyage, after they'd (eft the pay table, you proposed to get it back with heavy interest. It's an old trick. I've seen unscrupulous mates work it in other ships." "Half these fellas will jump: in the flrst port we touch. You'll never find 'em at anj pay table." "But you as mates can settle against the pay they leave behind them. Let's have the chit, Mr. Wilson. It is time that I become severe with you." • • • MR. WILSON tossed it on the fable. It was no more, than a rumpled, sweated half sheet made out in Mr. Wilson's hand and inscribed simply at the top as "Undersigned Men Owe to Messers Wilson & Finnie." The sums ranged from »2 to $7. Naish slipped it in hit shirt pocket. Then he wrote swiftly in the log book. ''Sign this, Mr. Wilson," he said. "And you, Mr, Finnie." "I aint signing what I ain't read," Mr. Finnie saidi' ' ; "It's a brief statement of what has happened," Naish said. "Read U with care. Let me make clear to you, though, that no good will come later to you If you destroy this lof book. Or if by chance 1 should go over the side some nlfht, and Mr. Bothwick after me. All «i«t will be needed In any court of law Is the testimony. of the men who borrowed the montrtnm you. I doubt that they'll testify In your favor." ' "You're ilick with the words," Mr. Wilson said, the pen gripped in his hand before he signed. "You've got book 1'amin' over and above Finnie and me. What hankers you to sail in a whaler *nd treat us so?" "The learning you can get the sime way I got mine," Naish said. His voice was softer; he was the victor now. "But there's no need to talk of such. What I want of you is absolute, unfailing obedience. If I receive it, at the end of the voyage what happened last night can be readily forgotten," Mr. Wilson smiled at Mr. Finnie and Finnie smiled back. Then with great solemnity and with what Naish recognized as honest respect for him they took his hand. "You 'bout got us where you want us," Mr. Wilson said. "How's for startin' on them other fish at noon?" "Fine," Naish said. WITH Blageen wan and concave at his side, Naish went into the hold in the morning. The steward had used a very basic method for the manufacture of liquor. He had half filled a keg with fresh water and added to it potato mash', potato peels, lemons and sugar and yeast, allowed the mess to ferment, Then he had drawn off the liquid through an old- cambric slirirt, called it grof and sold it as such. . "I couldn't stand the bloody well boredom-, no more," Blageen said. "I'm used, to the fast packets, I am. Travel in style front port to port." •;Naish had picked up a piece of dunnage and used it against the keg. The staves gave; the liquor ran 'over the planks towards the bilges." "Is Alfy really your nephew7" "No. No more than you are. But I didn't press him to comt aboard. 'E wanted it on hit own, the little demon'." ' "I'm locking you up In Irona in the for'd lazareitc until I can brine you before a court and Jury Mmwhere. I've known some low iwlne In my time, but you sound deep six for lure.
