First St. — Phone 8637 XXX 'TIM DUNN asked Mark Rich'«' ards: "How are you making lout on young Hughes' alibi?" Richards frowned. "It's stand- ;ing up, and getting stronger as [they check more. I felt sure it •was that boy. But with this alibi, •well, you can see where we're ileft? Chief Hughes took that gun jfrom headquarters. I'm positive I it's the boy's, even though I can't j prove it. So what does that {mean? Either he's mixed up in I this himself, or he's protecting [someone. Another thing. I've !been to see Atwood again, checking with him on depositors who drew large sums in cash from 'their accounts. So far we've been 'able to find about $23,000 paid | out in answer to those extortion idemands." ' "But Hughes wasn't one of ithem?" "No. And there's more." "Hughes in debt to Atwood?" "Badly. He has turned over his installment accounts to the bank for collateral. Even so, he's short of operating cash, and his expenses are high." "And Mayor Stone?" "No," Richards said. "Don't forget Eddie. The other—well, , it might be possible, but not that, i Even when you think of mercy i killings I can't see Stone ia the role." - . "Go on," Jim said. "Remember I told you young Hughes was interested in photography? It seems he runs through an interest pretty fast. .According to Chief Hughes, his son hasn't done anything with his photography work for some time. I insisted and be let me look in the darkroom, lot of stuff, and a lot ol equipment. But there's nothing there with cyanide in it But there is tn empty space on the shelf o< i chemicals, and th€ft it * mam (tn the dust where • container had been.* "You point that out to "Yes. I thought for a moment he was going to start telling the whole truth. Instead he launched into a rigmarole about how Eddie Stone still had the run of the Hughes' house. To hear him tell it, Eddie was devoted to young Tony. And Tony would do almost anything for Eddie. You see what he was trying to explain?" "That young Tony took the dentist's materials for Eddie? That Eddie could have taken the bottle from the darkroom?" "That and more. Hughes admitted Eddie Stone swiped the Hughes' car every chance be got." "It could all be true," Jim said. "And don't forget young Hughes is alibied so far. So what are you going to do about it?" "It isn't something I want to rush into without being positive." "Good. Why dont you go home? I might as well stick around here as my hotel room. Let your man on duty go." . • • • TV/TARK. RICHARDS nodded. •*• "So you've really got something, haven't you. Jirn?" "Partly, maybe." "Then this might help. I started the boys at headquarters digging at Vern Bruce's past as soon as he came into the picture. He's served time, Jim. A short stretch for manslaughter. Shot a man to death in a fight Back East in the little town he came from." "Might be a good reason he doesn't like guns any more," Jim suggested. "Might be. Tm not going to ask you a lot of questions right now, Jim. But there's on* thing I'd really like to know. Or it least—to know your opinion. Did Eddie Stone really kill Chief Drover?" "Under ttM drcumsunotg," Jhn Mid drily, "I think that'd bt in the nature of a philosophical question Even if the •rtmllf atruck witt. the dagger, the ice pick, whatever it was, could you say he was a killer? Or merely an instrument." At 3 in the morning, Jim got up from the desk and stretched the stiffness from his legs. He had gone through sbc of the manuscripts, glancing at them now not so much for their contents, which were, remarkably similar, but for a special page which might ser^e his purpose. So far his search had netted him only indifferent results. He glanced at his watch, was reminded of the time 12 hours before when he had been late for that sll-arnportant promise with Nancy. *He muttered. "It'd serve him right," and phoned Dr. Pardon. • • • TIM was a little disappointed •* that the doctor was awake, admitted to having just got home from the hospital. "And how is Mansfield?" "He's rallying nicely. If he were a little younger, I'd say he was out of danger. As it is, I'd still say he has an excellent chance." "Will he need another tran- fusion?" "I don't think «o. Are you offering again?" "Yes." -All right. I'll call on you rf there's an emergency. So you'd better get plenty ol food and rest." "Oh sure," Jim said. At the moment, he felt giving more blood to Mansfield might be easier than reading any more of the man's work. Pardon said, 'Is it important to you that Mansfield should live?" "Very important," Jim said. "If you want a reason, you might say I'm protecting my investment I don't want my blood to go to waste. And by the way, I'm at Mansfield's apartment if you should need me during th« rest of the night" "Good." "And, doctor," Jim said, "could Mayor Stone have been up and aroynd at 6 o'clock the morning after you gave him a sedative?"
