Ever since that morning Jamison had gotten their barges, the milling man had more than tried to make amends. >Ic was a thin, nervous-mannered man in a gray business suit and long coat that contrasted strongly with the general male attire at La Pa/.. i "Crotch, I dislike seeing you Igive that fellow Calhoon pas- : sage." : "I dislike it myself," Crotch promptly answered. "Then \vhy do it?/ At this moment, this particular time, it 'might be dangerous." An inflection in his tone caught Crotch's interest. "Something wrong? You're not going to crawfish on your contract?" 'No, Crotch." Sugar Logan's face blanched. "Our contract vuns out in January, but you'll get a fair chance from me. This time it's John Slade who wants to see you. They sent me to make sure you'd come." He rend from Logan's manner there would be no further talk unti 1 they reached the office. Deckhands and men from the milling company were working together, hauling loaded cases from a plank shed. This was La Paz bullion that Crolch would carry to Port Isabel where it would be transferred for the San .Francisco mint. The La Paz men jwore guns, nnd rifles leaned against the treasure shed. • Logan (licked his glance at him. "Do you think that rifle shot was meant for Shelby Cnlhoon?" A dry Inugh dropped from Crotch's lips. "Nobody con get very fur with those boxes, if that's got you worried." | "No," Lognn admitted. "They 'can't curry them without help. Just Uie came, Callioon wa£ one of Navigation's officers. It won't set well with my company." Logan's implication left the door wide open. But Crotch held back his questions knowing full well there would be no answers until the other man was ready. He said, instead, "It didn't take Queenie long to latch onto him." "Mustn't be loo hard on her. Crotch. I guess Calhoon helped her plenty out along the Hassa- yarnpa. Dreyfus rt-as trapned in a slide or shot by Mojaves. There's a couple different stories going the rounds." Logan's eyes flicked to Crotch. "Calhoon made quite a killing when he sold her claim for her. I have the uncomfortable feeling he salted the vein," Logan should know, for he had been milling Drcyfus's ore. • • * THEY stepped into the office where the old whale-oil lamp threw its thick glare over the stained woodwork. Slade sat al his battered round-top desk, watching them through his steel- rimmed glasses. The mill superintendent, Hamlin Rath, was leaning against the wall. He had a coarse florid face, and he wore the ore-stained overalls of a shopman. Both he and Slade nodded impersonally. 'Last night," John Slade commenced, frowning, "there was a raid on Jamison's ship." 'Jamison's!" Crotch lifted to the balls of his feet. Slade nodded soberly.- "He's tried to hold the news from spreading. But you know how these things go—" and John Slado smiled, lamely. "It was while the Clnramore was tied fast for the night. If these things can happen to the Navigation company, naturally we're worried about this bullion shipment. There's seventy thousand going down with you to Port Isabel." Crotch stood in sober reflection. Then burst out: "Jamison wanted you to hear about it. He expected the news would make you jumpy." "There's nothing at all plausible to that line ol reasoning." From the wall Hamlin Rath said Irritably, "They were masked, Crotch." It brought a cool laugh from Crotch. "I wouldn't put it above Jamison to rob his own packet. He's got plenty of Idle crews; there's men from his San Diego loafing in Ehrenberg and Castje Dome. He's put together this raid to make you jumpy." "Just give us one good reason why," Slade pleaded. "All right." Crotch laid his fist hard against Sladc's desk, met his look defiantly. "He's done it so you won't suspect Navigation if the General Heath runs into the same trouble. It'll be outlaws, hardcases—maybe Indians—name your own poison." * * * JOHN SLADE shook his head. "I want to send six men along on the General Heath. Six whom La Paz Milling Company can trust, and armed with guns." There was no intimation in this that Crotch was not to be trusted. It was simply the desire to put more guns behind this shipment But Crotch had no liking for landmen underfoot when they weren't needed. Considering the chill weather, there would be grumbling over deck passage, and the best he could offer were accommodations in the wood bunkers. Finally he shook his head. "We've not lost a pound of ore since we started hauling La Paz cargoes," 'But the bullion!" Slade reiterated with his face drawn smooth and light. "You're taking a 'chance on that!" "No, no chance. Crotch and company will take care of its own." From the desk John Slade spoke very quiclly. "Very well, Captain. Don't say we haven't offered. Tha entire responsibility Is In your hands," <!'• B* Continued) ^ That's All Wet SAN REPAEL, Calif.
