Her sea-rolled bottom shuddered as her thrashing paddles drove her over the bar. Goss was hacking away at his 'straining lines. The Inst rope parted with a snap, lotting the flnt-boUomcd Gen era i Heath shoot backward like a plate skim- .rning the surface. I Maddix caught her just aft of her blunt prow, driving his sharp [bow deep into Crotch's timber. (The General Heath shook to her \ keel, heeled toward the low 'river bank. But the backward power of the Heath's engine was now drawing Maddix's boat with her. The San Diego was hard aground with half heV hull. Under full power Crotch was dragging her, the gravel tearing nil the time against her rotten bottom. When he felt the pressure of the hooked ship ease off in deepening water he rang Mcl- ott ngaln for slow speed forward [to hr 1 -' 'loin pockets engaged. ! Go. -as now charging across : thc deck. At his heels raced the Cocopahs armed with firewood. Some passengers were following, armed with whatever weapons they could lay hands on. He saw .•doss strike the foremost wave of •'San Diego crewmen,'swinging Ins {sounding pole ngainst their heads. 'Hie battle \v»s fierce and fu- •rious while they wove back mid (forth across Mnddix's broken ioi'cdcck. Crotch felt the warm pride of his own battling erew lace through him. They had Calhoon licked, and Jamison and Maddix aloft on the texas realized this. . Then white froth at Clyde Maddix's stern told Crotch San Diego had had enough. He yanked his whistle cord sharply, calling Goss and his Cocopahs onto their own clerks. Slowly, the heavier packet backed into the channel. Maddix rang furiously for his engineer to beach her below the regular landing. Her bilge was taking water badly. Presently Crotch signaled his packet into the channel. By the time he reached the main deck Goss was heaving fresh Imw around the mooring stumps. "We broke her back. That devil-ship will never sail again." "You may have a point there," Crotch grinned. GOSG came back caustically, "Crotch, let's you and me climb aboard the other scow and scuttle her!" Crotch's tight eyes held a wicked gleam as he said to Melott, "Jim, hold your steam. We'll go after the barges before dawn." * * * IN the furious pace of their battle with Maddix he had completely overlooked Linda Wong. Whatever unfastened crates and odds and ends were stored on the cargo deck hnd gone careening when the Navigation boat crashed them, and he felt disturbing fear for Linda Wong. The p,ine box of Chung Wong hnd traveled clear across desk, coming up hard against the port rnf! and breaking open. The corpse had rolled from its ciisket nnd now lay fncc up on the planking, waxy and stiff in the lantern light. Linda's trunk had spread forth iU contents, and this was spread over the deck. A few feet from the corpse lay Linda Wong. Across her temples stood the ugly welt of a bruise. Crotch's eyes skimmed the passengers. "Give me a hand. We'll slip the Chinaman back in his box before she comes to!" Miners were already gathering her clothes and replacing them in the teakwood trunk. Two prospectors helped lift the corpse into its casket. Then they hammered the nails down with an iron bar one of them had swung in the fight Below the stairs Crotch recognized his Chinese cook, still carrying a pick handle which he had used as a buldgconiug weapon. "Keep your mouth shut about the way her husband died. If you don't I'll cut ofT your cars!" JIM MELOTT had maintained a full head of steam, with his pressure valve ready to pop at any moment. In order to kill most of the glow from the boiler they had hung a blanket around the engine pit. Behind this screen Melott worked with his Cocopahs in a drenching sweat. "They'll have riflemen watch- Ing 1 from the Ainador," he said. 'Good luck, Irv." Moored fast as she was, the General Heath's slashing paddles would lift tons of water against the ore-laden bnrges, hurling them into the Amador's stern. Foolishly, Jamison , had allowed those barges to remain between the two steamboats. But success depended chiefly on whether they could hack IOOM the mooring lines so that the barges floated free. , He went over the rail with Gos* in silence. Each carried an ax, each had a pistol thrust through his waistband, Goss's bruised face and dark board were hard-set in the murky light In each man lay the accumulated anger that. Navigation trickery had built Into a festering sore. Navigation hod started the play with the ramming by the San Diego; now, since Jamison, had asked for this, they would go All the way and ruin him completely. (T» Be Coniinvcd) By BILL WALKER Maw!
