W Edi XXV "TIM," Crotch said, "if you flnd •^ anyone aboard who needs booting across the rail, I'm looking for you to do it the fast way." Jim Melott's thin mouth formed a grin. His eyes flicked lo the bare-chested Cocopahs heaving logs from the wood bunkers. He said briefly, "We're the boys to do ill" Crolch then told him about Shelby Calhoon. When he mentioned the report of Jamison's CJiirnmore being boarded, it brought a laugh from Melott's throat. "Glad you told me, Irv. We'll keep pokers heating in the fire for them. Any freebooters climb aboard, they're going to have OH burned across their ends!" Crotch moved on and climbed the ladder to the small cramped cabin deck. He pushed a hand in front of his eyes, sensed his nerves were keyed up and tense. Calhoon's words struck him: "I must 8've credit where it belongs. Goss is one pilot Amos Jamison would give a good deal to havej in his pilothouse." Calhoon had blue-black whiskers that » razor's edge couldn't entirely eliminate. Over his face he had dusted powder. There was an aroma clinging about him like 1 'barbershop. Crotch thought: you're the one wants to marry Quccnle. You'd lead her another . chase up and down the country, ditch her at the last, when you've got no more use for her. Not on your life, frlendl -. . This was the man who had been nn ofllcor aboard the Amador. He hod taken Jamison's pay —and Crotch wondered If he w»s still taking fnvors from Jamison. There was no (rlendllnew to Crolch M he throw forth hl« blunt queaUotw. EDMUNDS CLAUSSEN Clouisrn Prior eopyrijlrt, Slgnjorf PnUkolfan. tat "1 never heard how Dreyfus died. How was Queenie's claim?" Calhoon .laughed in an offhand way. "I was working the Tills close by them. It was hard enough while her husbano was living—she was the only white woman inside a hundred miles of that forsaken country The Mojaves caught Dreyfus when lie was bringing in supplies, and after that Queenle seemed very glad for the small things 1 was able-to do for her." "Was his strike worth anything?" • • • CALHOON gave him a. long, silent appraisal. "To tell you the truth, we got a good price for it. Dreyfus had taken most of the pay out of his drifts. A fellow came along who wanted it badly and 1 was able to talk a pretty good thing Queenie's way." Calhoon moved nearer to him. his gaze lightening still .further. "Something else, Captain Crotch. Something entirely different I have an offer for you direct from Jamison." Calhoon waited a full half minute. Then: "If you two go on Ihls way Ihcrc's going to bt • killing. He's nol going to take any more off you, and you're sick of anything that »m»cks of Navigation. Right now I'm slicking my neck out. Don't know why J do It." Crolch asked slowly, "Wh»t did Jamison offer?" "Well, he's short a packet sine* Amador blew her boiler. He's willing lo hand you ten thousand, art! you clear off the Colorado." There was dead silence bcfor* Crolch spoke. "When did he give you that offetT Last nl|ht?" "Last night?" Shelby Calhoon Uuihed. "No. Lut nl*Qt QuMDta and 1 were closing the final deal on Dreyfus's mine." Crotch's face had set tight as stone, his eyes olanked over to hide the dangerous fire. "You can tell .Jamison never!" "All right." Calhoon said, half smiling. "But don't blame me. I only tried." "Calhoon." Crotch said bluntly, "how much did he lose in it you sold | that raid? Do you have any idea who boarded him?" "Boarded him? 1 don't know" anything about a raid." The ex-Navigation man stood quietly by the smile on his face, his nerves ice-cold. no tear in his eyes, There was no backing down. Crotch Knew for sure that I he lied, for every man in La Paz seemed to have heard of the Claramore raid. It was simply beyond the realm of credulity that Calhoon should have missed fhe story. • • • LATER Goss pointed the packet in for their late afternoon stop at Ehrcnberg. The door to No. 3 stood ajar: now Quecnie's voice broke his stride. "Come in. Captain Crotch. I'd like to talk." "Nothing to say, girl." Crotch had far-reaching feelings on the right of living out his life as he saw fit. He asked permission of no man, considered hirriself sturdy enough to Wke whatever consequences without whimper- Ing. Now that Quecnie was this j far she must take her own medicine. "Captain, Was in La Paz." last night Maddix She drew him into her stateroom with that, his pulses hammering. She said tensely, "Close 1 Hie door." | He stood stubbornly beside the : opening. ! "Captain Maddix had a room at the Mojave House," Qucenie went on in her slow, husky voice. "Shelby Cnlhoon went to see him. But 1 don't know what they talked about." So this explained the morn- Ing's rlflo shotl The bullet had been meant for him, not Calhoonl But the old nagging regret of QuMnle't behavior ittll worked on Crotch's mind.
