VI /CROTCH was stalking over the walk in a nervous stride when excilement gripped him. The creaking sound of a wagon reached him first. He stopped, standing dead-still with his boots spread to the trail pitch, listening, and hearing only the red- rolling river. It was said Jhal once a man sank beneath its whirlpools he never lifted his head from the vortex. Again the fresh sound of movement came to him, the muted jingle of trace chains. It stung him into action. There was no legitimate business that should ibring a wagon between these arrow-weed covered hummocks. •Radcjiff Burke would be back of this. The rifles were bait too ipowerful for Burke to resist. At this moment Goss needed : him as never before! He was racing now, halfway to the General Heath when the raw sound of the fight reached him. The crew, he realized, would be having their hands full turning roustabouts away from their raili. By a pair of bulkhead lanterns which illuminated the deck, he made out quite readily the score of men weaving back and forth. Others made dark outlines on the deck planks where they had fallen. Immediately Crotch discarded the idea of irate miners fighting for deck passage. The rig with its horses in the background, the scope of the struggle, put the He to these thoughts. Now, while Crptcji watchid, his Chinese cook ran down a passage, pigtail flying and oversized shirt that was soiled from month- long wear flapping against his thighs. China Boy, they called him. Last night Crotch had surprised him soaking his bunioned feet in their soup kettle. And yet what His Celestial Highness was doing at this moment would go long way toward allaying Crotch's displeasure. China Boy carried a poker which had been nurtured to cherry-red heat in his galley range. With this hot end he was freely stroking a raider engaged with his crew. A plank had been thrown across the rail over which Crotch swept in his angry haste. • • • HE CAUGHT a. swift lUmpse of Goss and Melott, putting up heroic resistance on the forward cargo deck. Their Cocopah deckhands had armed themielves with four-foot lengths of wood from the bunkers, wielding these with the adroitness of men, en-*- joying their fight. The roustabouts had likewise armed themselves with oaken clubs. One of the Cocopahs stepped directly to his doom from these clubs. A thick-necked, iron-slabbed miner came charging down with hie weapon extended; it took the deckhand in the open mouth, shattering his teeth like so much glass falling onto the deck. Crotch wheeled over this fallen Cocopah, grasped the miner's club before it could be brought down for another blow, lie gave his shoulder* • violent shift, bringing the miner's upper body closer. With his left hand he chopped in a blow at the bearded face and gloried in the fierce cry of pain, Blows were falling against his-armi and back but now Crotch straightened with tfa« club and laid It about him; He knocked the man nearest to him flat on the deck. From the bow of the boat Melott let out a whoop and came in charging. Gradually they drov« the GUa City mob toward the starboard rail. Very slowly at first, and then as the pendulum swung, retreat gained momentum. His crew could fight like demons; every last man had been nurtured on battle. Crotch was conscious only of the never-ending scrape of boots across the deck, the thud of weapons and a reek of sweating bodies. Occasionally a particular cry made itself plain above these sounds. He caught Goss' warning in this way. But too late! He was thrown backward by a pointblank blast from a cap-and-ball revolver. He sent hjs fingers grasping after hLs gun even as he tripped against the inert body of a Cocopah. The fall sent him sprawling :o on* knee. There amid the carnage of his decks he looked fuH into Belaire't fact. • * • THE MAN was swinging hi* listol into line for a second try. There wag no chance for Crotch ;o lift his gun and fire before Selaire finished hi* shot He glimpsed Chin* Boy racing in, jut too far away, and he felt his moment of defeat lance through iim, sensed death stark and real ide him. And then to his wonderment Belaire dropped his pis- .ol. Slowly his hands spread in front of his belly. Blood cora- menced to seep between the gripping fingers, running off onto he deck in sickening drops. Tht planes of Belaire's face became 'antastlcally frozen. For the one Briefest Instant before he pitched downward Crotch believed th* man meant to talk. Warily the captain wheeled to find RadclilT Burke standing against the deck structure, A blue-barrellod gun was smoking n his hand; there was a look of satisfaction cutting through the otherwise bland expression.
