Now I'll bother you for my rifle crnlcs. Don't be surprised at anything that happens when I get them ashore. Perhaps I may L bc able to call back after my en- :gaficmcnl!" He snapped his hand with mil, ilary precision bringing a down hard-cased minors over the rail armed wiLh pick handles in their bells. They placed themselves around the shipment, lifted the cases as though they were carrying coffins. Crotch watched them go, knowing he had com mi tied himself to a course that would make his future difficult. Mclott had generously sided him in this, but Jim had been a lifelong friend. i Dozens of hotheads along this 1 river would be eager to lake a pot shot into his pilot-house. The 'price would have to be paid for taking sides. As soon as Lnnc's mep, hit the , : cargo-packed earth of the landing strip, rushing figures of : Hurko's fighters bore down. They came howling out of a blanket of darkness until they completely encircled Lane's cases, fiiv- . Ing his men no chnncn for re, Irani except to return to Crotch's • | boat. ' : Hut Lane hnd selected hl« men , wisely. There were picked for Ihoir'broiHl shoulders, their arms of iron; men whom were unyielding and fierce, who had at home a brother or father fighting along the bloody Potomac. They formed a tight core around the cases, offering DO quarter. They swung their pick handles with wicked strokes, dropping the first onrushing wave to reach them, eager now to break from their encirclement after the onrushing rebels. Lane held them in check, and still Burke's men came on in undiminishcd fury, shouting their lusty yells and brandishing clubs. Each of Lane's small circle faced odds of 10 to 1-, never flinching. Then Crotch did what he swore he never would do.. He shouted to his own Cocopahs; "Down and lend them a handl" Once news of this spread along the river landings he was doomed. Crotch had planned on holding his crew aboard out of respect to Sugar Logan's politics, as a last protection for his .steamboat. Now he sent his Indians wipging into the fight'with their lengths of cordwood. China Boy and Mclott raced after them, each roaring n battle cry of his own choosing. Melott, hnd, made 1 his unnecessary choice of his own volition! Presently n lone rifle broke through the uproar. Beside Lane a miner clutched his throat and then went plummeting underfoot THE Lieutenant raised his dragoon pistol. Crotch followed the aim of Lane's gun, caught sight of Geis, the bush-bearded miner, In the wash of lamplight from Ihe saloon. Lane saw him, too; his gun cracked and Gels fell together slowly like an emptying sack of wheat Crotch caught ft low word dropped from Cos s's lips. wtwetod to m hk auto lUikio*. aft toward the engine pit. Goss had drawn rus pistol. Crotch drew his pistol, following in Goss's footsteps. In the narrow companionway beside the deck house Goss came to a dead stop, lifted his pistol. "Come out of there, before you get a shot in your heart!" A hurtling length of firewood struck Goss full on the temple. The blow sent him down like a poled steer. "All right, Crotch! Come and get it!" Burke's jarring voice struck him. The taunt was followed hard by a shot, the ball tearing through Crotch's jacket. Crotch leaped to one side, threw two fast shots fit Burke's pistol flare. They brought him merely a laugh from the engine pit. He dropped down against Ihe wood bunkers where a ball thudded a log a bare inch above his head. Now he saw reasoning behind Burke's seemingly illogical actions. While Burke's men held every advantage ashore on the landing Burke would kill, make a clean sweep of the issue. "I'm going to drive a shot into your steam pipes. Then you'll be cooked alive! If you step out from the bunkers I'll kill you!" • * « SO Burke had him trapped! A fresh flurry of shooting rippled along Burke's side of the steamboat. Crotch was conscious of the sound of Burke turning to answer the shots. He took advantage of the distraction and leaped from the narrow confines of Ihe wood bunkers, spied the blue-red flame of Burke's cap- and-ball exploding. He leveled his own gun at the telltale sign and squeezed the trigger. Burke was silent a full 10 seconds. AH the while Crotch could hear. thic.k breathing. Burke had been hH'bad and was sucking air into his lungs. Then he pitched headlong across the .deck, his, body striking a bucket nnd sending it spinning out of the way. Crotch walked closer to find him on his back. Dead. A man who had heard the cull of empire, who had seen n.shaft of light nnd been blinded by its too-sudden power.
