You've heard of Tombstone, bu doubt if you've ever heard Copper City. It was wilder anc woollier than Tombstone in the old days, but writers were neve attracted by its name. The mining camp liea in a deep myon. In the center of the bus iness district Phajo! turned to th left and pulled up a little stree that dead-ended at the Coppe King H»<eL. The hotel itood be hind cottonwood and walnut tree kept alive by constant sprinkling The hotel itself, a four-story struc ture of red brick and white plas tered walls, was built into th side of the canyon. A roofless con crete veranda in front was shade by the trees, but its ancient woode [chairs were empty. I helped Phajol take the tw Gladstones from the trunk com •partment. One, the big one, woul 'be his, the small, expensive would be Pat'a. She hung on to le briefcase as 1 carried her bag nto the hotel. Phajol wanted to arry his own. He registered for all. The clerk accepted the briefcase nd locked it in the safe's strong- x>x. There was no formality of a eceipt, but Phajol seemed satis- ed. I observed that the lobby, :iough air-conditioned, was empty ave for one occupant, a man who coked as if he might be a minister. • • • pIlAJOL and his daughter had front rooms connected by a loorway and overlooking the roof- ess concrete veranda just to the right of the lobby entrance. The roes provided seclusion; the hotel was comfortably isolated from view rom the front. My own room was an inside one, on a court. I guessed .hat the roof beneath my 'window covered the lobby. [ had nothing to unpack, nol even a toothbrush. I went across 0 Phajol's room. He warily opened :he door, and I entered. "When is your date with Dominico?" "Three o'clock. He might b« early." "Maybe I'd better case the hote a little." Phajol nodded. 1 added with forced casualness: "By the way. don't you think you shoulc tell me where the diamonds are?" He looked startled. "Why, you saw — Pat left them at the deskl I laughed. "That was rather ob vious, Phajol. You picked up th diamonds when you were supposei to be picking up a gun. The slul in the briefcase is probably lead 1 think you shouldn't hold me re sponsible for the diamonds unti you tell me where they're hidden. Phajol studied me a couple seconds, then said: "They're in tha Gladstone, I didn't think you guess." I looked at the unopened Glad stone on the rafjk. I eyed Phajol aguin. "Anolher thing—Pat must have found you on the phone and told you about Gremcheclc'l threat." He nodded. "She told me about he call. I'm not letting it worry Tie. I gather Pat also told you some ther things she had best left un- aid. Please do not pry into my rivate affairs. You need not worry bout my diamonds being stolen rom Maekling, All you are hired o do U to protect them." • • • WENT down to the lobby by the stairs. It was deserted save for he elderly man who looked ai il might be a preacher. I wen! over to the desk. To the clerk lid: 'The old guy with the sancti- ime gambler Julch," "Good heavensl monious puss—who is he?" The desk clerk grinned. That's Straight-Flush Johnnie, the old- irom Brewery I thought he was a preacherl" I took another look at th* oW man and laughed. I decided I need not worry about him. 1 went on into the taproom. It was empty except for the bartender- I climbed on a stool and ordered a bottle of beer. The bartender served it. "Quite a town you've jfot he Lots of ore comes out of the I guess." The bartender nodded. Txits at ore. Too bad they can't get more miners. No wonder, the scale, they pay!" Suddenly he looked frightened. "What's your line, Mister?" "Just seeirtf the sights." The bartender looked relieved. "A ruy'i |ot to be careful what he tays about the company,** the bartender mid. "The company owns all the mines, the hotel. Us* big store and everythinf."
