There was mockery about Mnddix's sunken eyes, an unhealthy gloating that effaced the dignity which had cloaked him while topside hi: ship. Crotch knew the loss of his packet had gone hard with Maddix. "This time you have the situation well in hand," Crotch admitted. "As usual." Maddix grinned In re!urn. "More than usual," Crotch said. "How much do we pay for your wood?" Mnddix motioned with his hand, and Crotch withdrew n chair nenr the wall and accepted the invitation. As he sot down his hands brushed the pockets of his shorlcont, were reassured by the bulk of his two pistols. "The wood's not for sole," Maddix said sharply. "With timber disappearing along the river, Jamison has been foreslghtcd enough • to take over the wood- yards. We're stockpiling against our own needs." "There's enough slacked out there now to last till summer." Maddix waved it aside with his hand. "As for you, Crotch, from now on you're not likely to need much steam in your boiler." The statement was hard, and driven home by Mndrllx's delivery. Crotch drummed the'table heavily with' his fingers. Any moment might bring him the ax strokes of his crewmen, chop- pn" the San Diej;o's hull. WJien 1' t happened the landing would be thrown into an uproar. His mind flashed back over the cn 7 counters he hnd had with thii arrogant pnrlnor of Jamison's. He remcmbercfl Ihclr treachery I - ""« i' —y 1-n- 1 ft: up Ihoir U,,c courtroom at Ehronbcrfl. They would do anything to invalidate his contract for hauling his ore barges; from the way it looked now, they appeared to have him licked all the way around. But Crotch was confident as he said quietly, "I still haven't forgot how you tried to impound my boat by playing judge. I Give you for that." Maddix snickered. "You'll soon start paying, Captain. This time it'll cost you everything!" "Jamison might pirate my contract, but how are you going lo get your boat 1 ; up to La Paz?" "We mean to dredge a channel. I'm taking over the Claramore as soon as they finish reconditioning the Amador." There was sudden pride in Maddix's lone, a glint in his eye Crotch knew was caused by hatred over the beaching of his former packst. Crotch asked, "Where wi« your rates go when all this happens?" "Captain," Maddix said dryly, "we're not talking rates. We're talking firewood. Where in Ihe General Heath wilhout steam?" • * t THERE was scarcely any need for Crotch to answer. The first ax strokes bit into the hog-post of Maddix's ship; the blows were coming with swift regularity now, the San Diego's empty hull flinging the sounds unriver like a sounding-board. Maddix's face turned bloodless. The dark-skinned fireman whose rifle had threatened from alnp the wood slack came lunging through the door and fixed his glance on. Maddix. "They're breaking aparl Ihe San Diego, Captain Maddix!" 'Well, itop th«m!" Mnddix cried vlcloiuly. "Don't stand like an ox. Take your crow yonder!" Now Crotch's voice rim-'-vrl IU <oft warning. "Just a nuii- ute! Be careful .how you close on my packet, Maddix. There are a dozen miners aboard with carbines, besides my crewmen, who'll glory in blasting your hides!" "Get downriver!" Maddix repeated. He rose halfway from his chair, face purpled. Crotch pressed his palm solidly against Maddix's chest and threw him backward against the wall. Armond Snodgrnss appeared bareheaded in the'entrance, an expression of disbelief and utter revulsion written across his face. "Captain Crotch, you are aware your men are chopping apart Jamison's ship?" "He knows it," Maddix leered acidly. "He's stealing firewood." The preacher let his eyes ride around to Crotch. "How do you reconcile an acti m like this?" Snodgrass was moving between the tables. Crotch said, 'They've cornered the wood and won't sell us any." SNODGRASS shook his head wearily. But his talk never came. Crotch saw him stagger forward in that same instnnl the rifle cracked. The eHge of his eye showed him Maddix's fireman in full retreat away from 1h« lighted area around the cafe. Snodgrass fell under the impact of the bullet, going limply to the floor. The shot had been meant for Crotch but the preacher had stepped in front of the bullet. Maddix began sliding away from the table. Crotch sprang after him, surprised at the agility of the big man. His short- coat pocket caught beneath the table, upending it and slamming Maddix against ,the wall. Me caught Maddix by the arm, but again the big man surprised him. The swing of n fist stopped him with crashing impact and Crotch rolled backward under the blow. Crotch drew his shoulder poinis against the wall slabs to _ive himself support. Ho struggled lo pull t his knee upward, drove It into*the other captain's thick belly. The air gushed out from Maddix's mouth, hli arms' sprang round to enfold his middle. Crotch's flst clubbed him while '•? r" 1 ' «"S""t for breath.
