He was gray- faced, around 60 and had in- ground grease in the pores of his skin. "What money?" Richards demanded. "The $2000. The extortion money I paid earlier tonight I want it back." "Tell us about it." The story was exactly the same as the oth«r two, save for the amount and the pay-off time which had been 7:30. "It was still light then," Richards said. "Did you see anyone around the station?" "No. At the time I'd have sworn it was deserted. I didn't hang around, of course. And I know now who was there. Heard the news on the radio. That Stone boy! Might have known it would come to this. I've always said a halfwit like that shouldn't be allowed to run around loose. Don't know what the polic* thought they were doing. Guess Eddie would have been put away long ago if he hadn't been the ion of His Honor our Mayor!" "I suppose you'd recognize it?" "Certainly I would. I certainly would. I marked every single one of tfaow bills I paid out I'll know them all right.'* "How did you mark "Never you mind that," Jones said suspiciously. "I marked them, and I'd know them. You find my money and I'll show you!" "You don't know anything else that'd help us?" "No. Told you that. I want my money!" "Get out," Mark ordered, Jones goggled at him. "Get out," Richards went on. "Leave your name with the man at the switchboard. We'll take up your claim when the money's found." "You're in cahoots with Mayor Stone," Jones yelled. "I'll sue! It's Stone's fault for letting that halfwit run loose. I'll drag him through the courts. I'll sue him for every dollar!" "You mind, Jim?" Mark nodded toward the door. Jim held it open. Mark was out of his chair fast, collared Jones, gave him the bum's rush down the corridor. "I want my money! I'll sue!" Jim could hear the voice get fainter down the halL • > • • * J>Y 2:30, when Chief Hughes returned to headquarters, two other victims of the extortion pay-off had put in their appearance, and laid claims to varying sums of money. They too were unable to five any helpful information. Chief Hughes went directly to his office, was slumped in his chair when Mark and Jim came in. "We finally fot Ed to sleep," he said. "It was terrible. We finally had to get Dr. Pardon to give him something. It—well, it was terrible." "Did you ask him any questions?" "Look here, Richards, Ed Stone is my best friend. He was shocked, practically out of hit mind over this terrible thing." "You going to go on being chief of police, or are you going to resign?" Richards asked. WJaj ibouU 1 re- sign? ril ten you one thing, young man. I've never quit under fire in my life." Some of the bombasticity returned to Hughes' voice. "Some things have come up," Mark Said bluntly. "I want to know how I stand. I want to know whether I'm talking to the chief of police—my superior. Or whether I'm talking to the best friend of Ed Stone and a father?" "I—well, what's the difference? Why can't I be all three?:" "We can find out pretty quickly," Mark said. "I told you some things have come up. Your car was seen several times this last week near the filling station where Eddie Stone's body was found." TTUGHES' eyes clouded with a J - 1 film of thought. "Wait a minute. My wife and I call on Ed quite often. I—well, I don't know whether you realize it or not, but Eddie Stone was mad about cars. I mean he'd jump in one and drive it off every chance he got." "I know that," Richards said. "We've had to pick him up a couple of times. He drives all right—did drive, that is. But we couldn't have him driving. Here's a point though. You knew about Eddie's weakness for driving automobiles. So you'd be extra careful about leaving your keys in the ignition when you parked by Stone's place." "That's correct But it still doesn't eliminate the possibility that I—or my wife—might have been careless. At least I can tell you for certain, I have not driven or parked my car anywhere near that filling station in the last few weeks." Jim Dunn broke In. "Was your son friendly with Eddie Stone?" Hughes looked at Jim as if he had just slithered out from under a rock. "Tony? My «on? What are you insinuating now?" "Just asking," Jim said. "You and your wife are such friends of the mayor's, I wondered." "You iurely know of Eddie Stone's mental state. What would he and my son have in common?" Hughes snapped (!• Bt THE REAL M'COyS By BILL WALKER ITS QK. NCIGHBOI?. WE <SOT A FH*E POCICX ON OUR NEW STOVE WITH W. L. WALKER INSURANCE AGENCY Glenco Bldg.
