Day Ph. 3-4257 Nile Ph. 3-6704 by EDMUNDS CLAUSSEH I 1954," ~E<hnHMfc Ckmvt^ Friw Bright, ShKvJonl P.Mte**ow, ht XXXII rpHE General Heath's wood -*- bunkers were empty and Crotch intended they should be well stocked by morning when they steamed after the Clara- more. There would be no chance for them at all if his crew must scour the already stripped river banks, chopping their own wood. At the woody a rd Crotch and Mclott ran headlong into the stalemate Jamison had set for them. A bronzed, scar-faced Indian had charge of the selling, a fierce-looking redskin with a pair of cotton summer trousers cut off jagpedly across the thighs, and a long coat that had once belonged to a gambler. And a bowler hat. The hat was the coup dc grace. "You are not going to got any erf my wood this time," he scowled with a dark unfriendliness threading his tones. "Tonight I am sold out. What is it white brother say?" and he snapped his fingers to add fitting vehemence to his remark. "I make clean up!" Crotch felt a hard anger beat against him, and a cold sweat dampened his palms. "What's the matter with us, Lamcfoot? Crotch and company have always paid your price without bickering. I'll buy you a good bottle of whiskey for a Christmas bonus." "I cannot sell what I do not own. Already I tell you there is rr> firewood here." When Crotch's oye.s drifted to the 10-foot stacks, Lamcfoot was quick to explain. "It has been bought by Navigation Company, Jamison—I am now working f o r Jamison." I.amcfoot snapped his fingers, mimicking a white mnn. "Bnhl for your bonus!" "Has Jamison nnyonc with au- t! ^-ily at Cnslle Dome? A chief c 'IP st:>.imboa!.;<?" The bicliim nodded, grinnin|. i "Captain Maddix is here. He will see that I do not double-cross him. If I do, they will chop off my ears." * * • SO THIS explained Lame- foot's attitude! Crotch's fingers slid about the butt of his revolver. The name of the Navigation captain who had rammed his General Heath and tried to wreck her set anger beating at Crotch with an almost physical impact There 'was no good in Maddix, simply scheming and violence which his haired directed toward Crotch. Next to Amos Jamison, there was no man along the river who could lift Crotch's hackles so high. He felt rage sweep over him, let his eyes run to h!s two Cocopah deckhands, then pulled them back to Jim.Mololt. "All right! Give H to him now!" he said violently. His hand had barely begun the lift of his revolver from his waistband when the glinting of a steel,barrel looked straight into his eyes. He saw Mclott stop his run, saw him slide in the miry mud. All around appeared the ugly barrels of rifles. They were thex crew of Maddix's beached packet, the boat whose hull lay below river. The frowning face atop the firewood, held a special significance for Crotch. It belonged" to one of the firemen from the abandoned ship, one of Ducy's men. The fireman motioned with his gun barrel. "Go back," he said flatly. "There will be no wood for you." Crotch nodded, the grinding anger inside testing his control Ui the iitmodt. There must bo no break here b*ncnth the gunit of Mnddix's crew, "All right, boys. Hack to the slenmboal!" They rnovocl awny i-Jiv/ly. the eyc« erf tt>* COcottth* lingering | over this scene In front of the woc:Jyard. They were still waiting for a countermand, would have rushed in with bare fists had Crotch given the order. They were halfway to the landing strip , before Melott found his voice. "At that," he said, "they let us' off easy. We walked straight into it" Crotch returned him one of wry, thought-provoking smiles. "Jim, do you figure you could! burn the old San Diego in our boiler?" * • • MELOTT'S face came around j to Crotch, eyes filled with a new-] born savage light. "How I'd lovej to throw her beams in our fire' boxes!" "Then go back and have Goss hand out the rifles. Those fel-j lows will keep their eyes on their woodyard; they'll he expecting 1 us back. Instead, you drift down- river to the San Diego- Tie fast and let the crew do a good job with their axes." Melott's questioning look dung to Crotch. "What about you?" "I'll look up Maddix. .Those deckhands of his won't give you much of a fight if I can keep him out of it." The strength that was part of Crotch, that hidden will and force that were his, were apparent to Melott. He felt it and was warmed by it, and he brought out his own pistol, handed it over butt foremost. "You watch that fellow the way you'd watch a dog with rabies." He left, then, with his two Cocopahs trailing him toward the landing. Crotch turned up Castle Dome's single street, headed for the brightest lights, counting on Maddix being inside this place. As he passed a bonrded-over store, a guitar sounded the racing notes of a Mexican dance. A woman was laughing against the click of castanets. A private affair of some sort was going on behind this darkened front. Directly nliend lay a patch of lamplight. He judged Maddix would be here, and when he came abreast the pi nee a glance inside bore him out. Clyde Maddix tvas rrntcd by Mtmelf nl n \vn'l tr-'-l?
