Celestial China clay imust return home to China; if a :man died in an estate too poor I to pay for shipment of his re!mains home, then his box was i planted temporarily with food (and red candles burning on his grave until such time as .his friends could pay the white man's 'fare home. They could freely subsist on a mere handful of rice a day, but never must their bodies be allowed to stay on foreign soil. "We'll tnKe him, ol," Crotch slowly told China Boy. Then as an afterthought, "What did this one die of?" "Him allce time ride horse for the Feast of the Lanterns. Him nllec time gqt thlown off. Him get thlown into hogpen. Hogs no likfx;, hogs bitce." Ashore, the constant repercussion of the fireworks attending Chung Wong's funeral came to him faintly; the yellow Celestials would continue their elaborate ceremony until nenrly the flnnl moment before Wong's coffin wns carried aboard the steamboat. Crotch found himself this -morning in the clutches ofuft wicked mood. Before dawn Am- •dor had gone splashing down- towing a string of barges in tandem. There was only one place Jamison might have come by those barges, one company that could have supplied him the cargo. 'Those barges had been built with $500 advanced by Crotch for labor, his General Heath had brought the timber upriver from Port Isabel, he had the contract in his safe, naming his ship as the sole carrier for La Pa?, ore! And if his reasoning proved not to be .unjust, Sugar Logan had sold him out to a river pirale who wns dead-set on ruining him completely. It was a black morning indeed as Crotch shifted his pace into his hurried dogtrot toward the milling company's offices. THE milling company office was newly built of yellow timber, a low shedlike structure attached to the straggling mill building proper. The door was unlocked and he entered without knocking. John Slade was behind his roundtop desk, obviously awaiting him. "Well—" Mifiht as well get this into the open. Let Crotch bellow and rage; Sugar Logan had had no stomach for it after the barges had been literally handed to Jamison, had ridden off leaving ,thc entire filthy business in Blade's lap. "—well, Logan and I have about decided our agreement with you was premature. The truth of the matter is that Navigation has been" granted the ore shipments, So far as the barges go, we will have to reimburse you for them." "I've got a contract; I'll take the bnrges." "I wouldn't try that, Crotch, Jamison's a pretty ( rln.«y customer, I wouldn't wnnt io feel re- sponsibltf for whatever happens to you. After all, you've made a blunder. Own up to it." "Now you're talking about Springfield rifles?" Slade nodded mutely but his Adam's apple was dancing vigorously beneath the hairy hide of his throat, belying all calmness. "My partner is a man with definite political opinions which have been foisted upon others, but which, at the same time, must be respected." "Your rock-hard partner is so scared to face me he had to rabbit out," Crotch said. 'Nevertheless," Slade gave a slight shrug to his shoulder, "he's been solidly injured by ypur actions. The simplest thing you can do, Crotch, is tear up your agreement." "Or," Crotch said, "retake my barges from Jamison. When I come back to La Paz I'll let you have my bill for hauling ore to the Gulf at $10 a ton. You set a policy this morning. So far as La Paz Milling goes, might is right" * • * • THE General Heath had a single-cylinder, vertical beam low-preFsure engine — the same ferry engine that had powered them around the Horn in '49. Perhaps her sloping prow gave the Heath the look of a scow, yet Crotch was bringing her down to Castle Dome in a little more than five hours, a record that would stand a good many years. Goss was still smarting from the smashed face Burke's log had given him. He said shortly, "You fcelin' belter?" "You heard, of course, what Lane told me before we left La Paz?" Goss grinned tightly. "He ha* got every right to lay it on thick. The Rebels had his goose cooked until Mclott jumped in last night." "A report to his ranking officer," Crotch scofTed sardonically. "He's mentioning Jim for brovcry In the defense of La Pa?,. I told him to report on China Boy it he had" to do it but leave ,Tim out of it.
