By Frank Gruber xxxrv TITHES' TANCRED picked up his " carpetbag/'which still stood i beside the late publisher's desk, : and carried it to the cot at the I rear of the shop. He set it down and opened it up and then he heard the door open. He whirled, then relaxed. A group of men were coming into the shop. Gil Packard was in the lead. Tancred recognized the others as Judge Kraft, Prosecutor Glassman and two men who had been elected to the city council along with the others. "Mr. Tancred," said Gil P*ck- ard, as the spokesman for the group, "we're here because we've all juat read this week's Star." Tancred regarded Packard narrowly. "Yes?" "We represent the duly elected officials of Sage City and the County of Sage. We were legally •elected and although we haven't as yet performed any duties, we intend to do so. . . ." He paused to moisten his lip«. "That is, on on« condition." Tancred waited. Packard shot a quick look around his title group, saw that no one had weakened, and drew a deep >breath. "On condition that you accept the job ot town mar- .ahal "' Tancred stared at them. "You (know that I am Wes Tancred?" "We know it" The door opened again and Lee Kinnaird came in. Tancred said, "Let, they want mt to be marshal." "Have they promised you any special kind of funeral?" Kinnaird held aloft a copy of the Star, "If necessary, we'll form a vigilante committee," Packard said, angrily. "Then you don't need a mar- thai," Tancred said quickly. Herb Gla&man stepped (or* I ward. Ht threw up his hand. "Wait • minutt, Taacrtd. There'll be no vigilante committee. I'll go along with the rest on most anything—as long as it's legal. But just because Jacob Fugger's broken every law in the book doesn't mean that we should. . . ." Judge Kraft cleared his throat. "Classman's right, we've got to uphold the law." Kinnaird touched the bandage on his head. "Last week I arrested a man named Smith. I did it quite legal-like and he was taken away from me in a very unlegal-like manner." He pointed to Glassman. "Did you issue any warrants, Prosecutor?" He whirled on Judge Kraft "Did you sentence anyone last week, Judge?" He turned back to Tancred. "Don't do it, Wes. They'll let you go out and face Eric Stratemeyer and Dave Helm and they'll be behind you ... a long ways behind. So far behind that the bullets can't hit them." • * ' * PACKARD asked savagely, "Have you gone over to Fugger's side, Kinnaird?" Kinnaird grinned crookedly and walked out of the shop. When the door was closed the councilmen looked uneasily at one another. Tancred drew a deep breath. "I've thrown it in Fugger's teeth. I've got to back it up ... I'll take the job. The councilmen shouted and begsa to converge on Tancred. He held up his hand. "I'll take the badge, but I'm warning you —I won't give it back until it's all tver. I mean that, no matter how quickly you change your minds, I'll see it through." "I won't quit!" shouted Gil Packard, "I promise you that" Tancrad walked back to the cot and reaching in, took out a heavy bundle. Ht unrolled it, exposing his revolver. "This gun," h« told his visitors, "is tht gun that killed Sam Older. I'm telling you that now because it's going to be thrown into your faces . . . that I'm the man who killed Sam Older. Yes, I kiUed him. I'll tell you this, too. I received no reward for killing Older. I killed him to keep him from killing me. There are no charges against me—anywhere. That's as much as I'm going to say about myself—and Sam Older." He spun the cylinder of the revolver, saw that it was working smoothly and thrust the gun under the waistband of his trousers. Nodding to the councilmen he went past them and left the shop. On South Street, Tancred crosed to the jail. As he neared the. door it was opened and Chuck Gorey stepped out "Well, if it ain't Mr. Tancred," Gorey said, thinly. "Give me your badge, Gorey,* Tancred said. "You're through as marshal of Sage City." "What?" gasped Gorey. Then his face turned a sudden crimson. "What're you trying to pull?" "The city council's appointed me marshal," Tancred said in a deadly calm voice. "What city council? I mean— they got no right" * * * TPANCRED held out his hand. "Give me your badge." Corey's eyes dropped to the revolver, the first timeshe had ever seen Tancred with a gun. A sudden whine came into his voice. "You're trying to make me draw on you ..." "For the last time, give me that badge!" A palsy shook Gorey and he had trouble unpinning the badge, Tancred took it and pinned it on his shirt "Put your keys on the desk inside," he said evenly. "Then get out—and don't cross me, because if you do, I'll kill you.** He turned and walked away. Gorey stared at Tancred's back and the temptation to draw his gun and shoot Tancred must have been deep. But something kept him from doing it; fear that Tancred, in spite of a bullet in hi* back, might still kill him.
