Actually, they [had been defeated before Belairc 'went down. They had known it, land Bclaire had known it — rotch had read the desperation jin his face, even as the man's igun was turning toward him. But what were the reasons for [Burke coming to the General 'Heath's support? Now, as Crotch .'recalled the look on Belaire's iface, he knew the man had rec- lognized Burke in that last mo- iment before death blanked his (mind. Crotch thrust his gaze on Burke and found him still hold- •ing his pistol. "You fight like a veteran," •Burke admitted coolly. "I had no idea they'd battle so fiercely for steamboat passage." Crotch started a growl low in [his throat. Now it came to him clearly: shooting would be bound to arouse Murphy, and once that first shot had been fired by Belaire, Burkc's plan had miscarried. What good was his wagon, his looted guns, when he was too weak lo withstand a charge of the post's cavalry! Primarily, Burke was a shrewd man. He had altered his plan, electing to buy his way into Crotch's confidence by saving his life. Crotch turned away from Burke toward his own men. I don't owe him anything, he thought. Burke had masler- min £?.djhjs raid after the rifles; he had had his own strange reasons for being satisfied with Belaire's death. There had been no favor, Crotch would give none In return. On the foredeck h« found Melott with his head pressed between cupped palms. His engineer ha't taken severe punishment and was groaning. "Whatever made them put up such a fight? Whatever made them do it?" Melott demanded. "Jim, it's not .what you think." Melott removed one hand at a time from his rank wet face. He had bony, lean features, a long sharp nose and a cleft chin. .His eyes were points of fire. "Why did you say that?" "We're carrying guns for the army. For the Federals, Jim." Melott's lips were white and his eyes were shadowy blanks, expressing absolutely nothing. He said heavily, "I had an idea of that. Why do we have to do it? What's the matter with sending them o"e- land? Murphy could make up a train." "No, Jim! Murphy can't spare men enough to guard that kind of shipment. The Apaches would go for those guns!" "What about the Amador? Did Jamison turn them down?" "Murphy didn't give him a chance. He's afraid of Maddix, of Calhoon." Crotch paused, then added, "He knows Navigation's out to break us." • V • MELOTT stared across the dry stretch of arrow-weed that swept beyond range of eyesight. For a long time he had known something like this was going to happen. The Territory was too important not to be fought over, and the General Heath must come into it He said stiffly, "I was born under the same flag as you, It hasn't made the wisest choice la this, nor done all that was fair. But I guess it will still do. It will have to do, Irv—there's no other way." An hour later his passengers began climbing over the side. Now they had enough fists and guns to withstand further trouble. Passengers on the river boats always fought for their own packet. Considering the Apache desert on each side of the river, it was a good thing this was so. Crotch's gaze fell on Dreyfus coming over the gangplank. Hs had someone else with him A woman! He was taking Queenie back to La Paz! His eyes flicked to her and he knew an instant's sharp regret He realized at once Queonie had thrown over her bakery shop for this. For this life in the parched hills with the utter loneliness, the hardship and the song of the wolves at night. Then, oddly, he remembered her tone When she had asked if Burke was coming upriver. It wasn't Dreyfus, then, but Burke! "She'll be no trouble to you," Dreyfus said as he pressed a sack of gold into the captain's hand, "Staterooms are all taken," Crotch murmured tritely. "Where Dreyfus sleeps will b« all right, with me," Queenie said. Her expression was gay, carefree, very nearly radiant, Crotch thought. She was dressed in a newly made Indian skirt. Later, he went back with his passengers and saw Dreyfus spread his blanket over the deck in the bow of the ship. Alongside it Dreyfus laid his rifle. Others were already sleeping beside him; the deck was beginning to fill with dark shapes of men in various positions of rest They had no top covering—th« wind on the river was like the blast from a furnace, and marsh mos-Quitoes were thick in the air. Now Queenie was coming toward him at a brisk walk and Crotch paused beside the rail. "You don't think I'm <*oing th« right thing?" she asked quietly. He lifted a shoulder. "So long as you don't hurt Dreyfus." She paused a moment, theft: "I'll do right by him." <T« B4 ConUaiMd) "romp I DELIVERY SERVICE Phone 3-4507 Hoars; 8 a.m. io 9 p.m. with DcliTerj to 7 p.m. WOODS DRUG STORE 221 WMt M*ln St. TRUSSES EXPERTLY 1 FITTED KIRBY DRUGSTORES EXPERT WATER PUMP REPAIR Hubbard Hardware WE BUY USED FURNITURE PHONE 3-3122 Wade Furn.
