It.iilrlKT nnrke T ESS than two months iiad passed since PauHnc Weaver had found the first gold in the river gravel, and from this desolate camp of one tent La Pa?- had bnnmf'ranged into a healthy settlement of 1000 men. At dusk the General Heath bore in on the ; shore. Amndor had already tied i fast to a tree above them. I The largest building yet at'< tempted was under construction, r a saloon whose front section was already doing a land-office business while Mexican laborers still , fitted vigns to the rear which would support its roof. A bnish l ramnda cast- shade against its ) front door and the walk. Air I tached to one of the posts was a freshly painted sign: fTASA AMAIULTiA WK TUJV H1DKS, HIII.MON, ANYTHING SAMSAIlhK Upriver, his friends John Slade and Sugar Lofinn had built their crude ore mill, with which to crush the quart-/, that was coming from the inland hills. Already | there was more ore than the mill could handle. Crotch had made a doul to haul the surplus to the river's mouth on barges. Sugar Logan would have the first ore loads ready for him on the downriver run. This Jamison coveted, cargoes tli;it Lhrougii U.\; v*csr" vr«ilH make him rich. There were no scruples about Jamison's business mtflhods, lie would wreck a boat or kill to get ht.s routs established at the outset. Hut there was one thing Crotch thought the man had overlooked, for Crotch believed himself a judge of the caprices o£ the river. The channels were changing so fast that another month or so would find it impossible for Navigation to stop with their larger packets. Perhaps Jamison counted on owning the General Heath by that time. BURKE had delayed going ashore, and now Crotch's eyes narrowed as he watched the man step down the sway-backed gangplank. Beyond, near the freight warehouses, his gaze picked up the truculent miner with the bandaged head talking with a heavily bearded La Paz mar;. He had the odd impression two were waiting for Burke and so kept them in view. He saw the bush - bearded miner thrust out his hand. Obviously, here was a strange choice of friends for Burke. But Crotch was too far away to hear their talk. "Frank G e i s," the b u s h- bcardcd miner acknowledged his name gruffly. "I ain't so sure I'm glad to sec you. We're ready for Belairc," The noticeable belligerence in his tone warned Burke the other man had RJready spoken about Bclalre. "Bclaire won't be with us,** he replied gently. "And you're i queer bird! Whatever made you kill him?" ."When a friend reaches the end of his usefulness, it's time for a change." Gels looked at th« bandaged man nnd shrugged and then led the way into the Casa Amarilln, It might l>c Geis wu-S io U. II.:- ncxt sacrifice, and the thought made Gels's mouth draw tight. Geis gave him his report: "I got 100 men drilled. They nit know which end of a gun counts, and all of them, at one time or another, have been helped by the snake. Belaire was ready to turn them loose op Gila City." "Gila City was too near Yum a in case the fight dragged out And I've got something new to explain. Sherod Hunter's march- ,ing back with Texas volunteers! Once we have La Paz under control we can train our men thoroughly with-the new Springficlds, then be ready to march in support of Hunter's campaign.™ Burke, let his black eyes drift icily over his men, read out the harsh lines of their faces. "This time, friends, it will be against Major Murphy!" * • * LIEUTENANT LANE was a medium built, thin man with most of his body liquid cooked dry by the desert sun. He had sharp dark features, a pointed nose and a pronounced Adam's apple. This was the officer to whom Murphy had consigned the Springfields. The redmen, in various sectors of the frontier, had driven into him a temper that only line steel, or the old Army of the West, could lay claim to. Murphy could pick men well. "Lieutenant," Crotch said smiling, "I hope you have a rugged place to store your shipment." Lane frowned slightly. "I have an adobe hut as my arsenal. But you have brought the guns through safely—that's the main thing!" "And you'll have trouble," Crotch said. Lane nodded. "1 expect trouble as soon as my men cross your gangplank. I should tell you I have nearly 100 Union sympathizers concealed about camp. They're willing to flght. I've been working in La Paz nearly two weeks, Captain." "You've been so honest, maybe I should tell you your cases are filled with gravel. What you're looking for is somewhere else." "So?" and now Lane's face turned taut and cold. "Where •V"i:H «h«* N». Contain?" 'Under my wood blinkers, covered by chunks ol pir.e. It took us most of one night to make the change."
