A trader's post had sprung up and Jamison was building storage sheds and using the place :/or overnight mooring and wood lot. The camp was destined to grow for no special reason other than Navigation usfng it as a general depot. A grand sight burst upon Crotch as they rounded the bend and came down the straight channel to the landing. The Amador had her prow against the dark bank, tied fore and aft to the trees. ' Crotch's ore-laden barges snubbed fast beside her. She had been met by the upriver Sun Diego »t this point and both Navigation boats had made fast for the night. There was no thought in Crotch's mind the two boats thus incrcnscd the odds against him; he was merely doubling his chances of dealing n major setback to Jamison. Crotch rang off his engine, drifted against the bunk a good 50 yards above the Amador. Safeties lot RO as his head of steam bogan escaping. The Cocopah Indians stood at the pnrl rail fore and afl, ready lo throw their lines, but shoremen failed to appear to receive them; from this Crotch judged Jamison hnd »1- rcacly Inlked and no one In Cnslle Dnrnr , wftnlcfl lo take sides In what was coming. He dragged a sleek-barreled revolver from its holster beside the wheel, thrust it Inside his waistband. Then he tossed Goss a wicked look. "Comin 1 , Den?" He fell glee kick up all lie way from his belly. Crotch reached the Amador first, but she lay in darkness. Her plank was withdrawn and Crotch had a sudden insight that Jamison was no longer aboard. He ran on to the San Diego whose deck was a 1 i vc with m i ners bound upriver. Beside the pilothouse of this second boat he saw a pair of dark figures. Crotch swore. "Now, Ben, we'll pull his teeth!" * * * AMOS JAMISON stood at her upper railing beside the San Diego's own skipper, Clyde Mad- cli'x. They waved mockingly as Crotch came in closer, and Crotch knew neither captain was disturbed \t> see him here. The San Diego was a trim singlo-ender of 30 feet greater length than Crotch's ship, with a pointed prow and heavy hog- framing and a circular pilothouse perched cagelikc atop her tcxas. She was virtually as luxurious as Lhe Amador, but much older, and her hull and underwater timbers were jolten, "V cu got a stiff passenger aboard for cargo?" Jamison called down, and his tone carried taunting laugh. Obviously it was a joke aboard the San Diego ;hnt Jamison had refused to carry the pine box from La Paz, tak- ng only the ore barges. Crotch strove to rcmnin cool In spile of the heat that swept through him. "Run out a plank, Tamison, You and I are going to talk freight rMcst "Mow much did you offer to •laulfthelr shift for? Whatever it k, you'U ruise U five tunes if you're able to crowd us off the river." Jamison took that, his passengers listening in with rapt attention. Along the river it was understood he owned half the stock in the Navigation combine, the balance divided between Mnddix and Calhoon and three or four lesser hirelings. By this time Crotch was thoroughly aroused and he lifted his voice hoarsely. "You try and move Ibesc barges downriver and I'll sink them!" It brought only an insolent augh frorp Jamison. "And you," he called back, "are going back to your New England fishing banks!" CROTCH plunged knee-deep nto the swirling water, his hand outstretched for Jamison's rail- ng. Even if there was no gangplank there was still one sure way of climbing aboard a steamboat. Here, with his fingers on the railing, Maddix's voice caught him flatly. "Gentlemen, no more fighting!! A lady—may I present another passenger for Captain Crotch? A woman who troubled to come all the way from Port Isabel to claim your cargo, Captain!" A swinging lantern on the lower deck brushed the reed-slim figure beside Maddix. The girl was dressed hi the newest San Fran,cisco style, wasp-thin waist and bustle be- lind. Beneath her saucy hat he recognized distinct Chinese fea- .urea. The gangplank came over the side and now Maddix was clucking softly to himself and helping iier onto the board. She came gracefully down from there by lerself, a well-turned-out beautiful creature who had sh'ippcd lalfway arnund the world to join .he man Crotch carried on his 'oredcck In a box. Mnddix said heartlessly, "Her .runk, Captain. You may have all of her from here on." He lave the trunk a shove with his joot and H came sliding down he plank to turn over against Its ;idc.
