M'CANN TRIES TO BRIBE THE CREW TO RETURN TO NEW
YORK—HOLLIS IS FORCED TO MAKE HIM PRISONER.
Synopsis—Robert Hollis, who tells the story, is n guest on
Girard Currington's yacht, Esmeralda. It is supposed to he a "stag"
party, and Hollis is surprised on discovering a woman, who evidently
wishes to remain unknown, aboard. She merely tells him her name
Is Vera. Carrington tells his guests of the coming war, and that he
is engineering a copper pool. The yacht is sunk in a collision anil
Hollis saves McCann, millionaire, and one of the party. Hollis and Me-
jL'ann rescue Vera and leave the ship In n small boat. McCann refuses
to submit to the authority of Hollis, and the latter enforces obedience.
The castaways are sighted by a ship, the Indian Chief, which takes
them aboard. The vessel is badly storm damaged. All oIHeers are dead.
Bascom, the owner, says he is taking a cargo of ammunition to Ger-
many. Hollis consents to take charge of the ship and continue the
"The glass is falling rapidly," I an-
swered, "and I suspect a storm is
brooding behind that curtain; that is
why I am so anxious to make all clear.
What do you think of the crew?"
She glanced aside toward the mo-
tionless negro at the wheel, and then
at the men shuffling about their work.
"1—1 hardly know; they—they loqk
awfully rough and—and disreputable.
Weren't some of them drunk?"
"No doubt, yes. Don't worry, Miss
Vera. Those things nre frequent
enough on shipboard. We will have
these lads thoroughly tamed within an-
other twenty-four hours. There is never
a mutiny without some leader and i.
better cause. I am working under
your orders, you know."
She glanced up quickly into my face.
"Under my orders? No, not that,
Mr. Hollis. You told me it would be
your choice; I merely granted permis-
"Your permission was equivalent to
an order. I so accepted it."
"But that is hardly fair. Not tllat I
regret the choice, for I could never
have forgiven myself if my selfishness
had ruined Philip Bascom. lie is really
an old friend."
"So I supposed; n very Interesting
man in spite of his misfortune."
"He Was, indeed, before that bullet
wrecked him. It is sad; and to think
that the one who shot him is actually
on board—his guest."
"Not altogether a pleasant thought
to me," I said soberly. "For McCann is
the kind to breed more trouble if he
can find an excuse."
"You do not consider the man dan-
"Not in the sense you mean, ne will
never attack openly, or permit himself
to be known in any conspiracy. But
he will have to be watched, neverthe-
less. He is the sort to harbor revenge,
and as he feels hatred and distrust
toward both Bascom and myself, we
cannot be too careful. I shall have to
tell Leayord the whole story."
"The man I named for first officer;

"Yes; rather young, but I like his

spect of the men." I turned and gazed

black at the wheel.
"Watson, sah; Charles Watson."
"Well, Watson, let her head fall off

showing oddly, and I rang for an In-
crease of speed. Watson, bracing the
wheel with one knee, wiped his lips on

"You heard what I said to the men?"

He scratched his head.

stuff, and bound ter be sunk or cap-

"We have a miscellaneous cargo," I
answered, "and some of It might be
contraband. But It was shipped before
war was declared, and we have ample
time to reach port before the establish-
ment of a blockade. There will be no
trouble, Watson, If the men only do
their duty. You let them know that

I left him, and walked over to the [ with Liverpool
"Tomorrow, sir, or perl.tips to-
night, as soon as they learn for sure
the course we're steering. They are
dead set against Hamburg."
"Why Hamburg, Mr. Leayord?"
"Well, sir, 1 don't just know myself,
for I was the bosun, and the lads never
talked to me very freely. From all I've
heard, however, it's largely caused by
what that fat bloke yer brought aboard
with yer bad to say about this dirty
War breakin' out. I don't know the
duffer's name, sir; but I hear he claims
to be a millionaire, an' is willin' ter
spend a lot o' coin, just to be took
back ter New York. Cookie told me
that he and the guy that goes by the
name of Liverpool had quite a talk."
"Liverpool lted—yes, I've heard of
him; he's the men's leader forward."
"Likely so; but there's others of
the same kidney. If I was you, sir,
I'd have a talk with Olson when he
come on deck again. He'll tell you
more'n I can."
I stood silent a moment, staring out
into the black void.
"I presume, Mr. Leayord, I can con-
fidently rely on your loyalty in case
"You sure can, sir."
"He'll face it like a man; and al-
though Masters is a bit of n fool. I'm
guessing he can be counted on in a

"That's hard to say, sir, otThand. I

with any o' this crew long enough yet
to size 'em up; but there are a few
men forward who don't chum none

rail, realizing keenly the position of
peril into which I had drifted. With
a loyal crew my task would prove no
easy one, but with a crippled ship, and
t lie men already on the verge of mu-

The Crew Grow Ugly.
For a moment I remained forgetful
of the presence of the girl on deck.
There was but one course to pursue—
at the very first evidence of disobedi-
ence I must nssert full authority.
There must be no hesitation, no sign
of weakness. Even as this crystallized
in my own mind, the girl's hand
touched the sleeve of my jacket.
"Supper Is ready, Mr. Hollis," she
said. "Are you not coming down?"
"Very shortly. I will have the men
knock off work, and leave the mate in
charge of the deck."
"What were you thinking about so
earnestly? You actually forgot me."
I glanced aside into her eyes.
"Not guilty, Miss Vera; I was think-
ing of you, and of how I could get you
safely out of this scrape. I do not say
tills to frighten you, Miss Vera, only,
perhaps it is best for you to know the
situation. The first thing necessary
on this voyage is to show those fellows
forward who is master aboard. But
we've talked about it long enough now.
I do not anticipate any locking of horns
tonight for those lads will need to dis-
cuss plans among themselves first.
Bascom will be waiting for you in the
cabin, and I will join you presently."
I walked with her as far as the lad-
der, and watched until she disappeared.
Forward I'could perceive little outside
the glow of the lanterns in the radius
of which black, grotesque figures con-
stantly passed and repassed. Occasion-
ally a voice sang out some command,
the words scarcely distinguishable.
"Mr. Leayord!" I sang out.
"Aye, aye, sir."
"Let the men knock off work for (ho
present, and send the second mate's
watch down for supper. You will take
the deck, and it will be better to have
another hand aft here at the wheel."
"Very well, sir."
I waited until he clambered heavily
up the ladder and joined me, his huge
figure outlined against the gleam of
the binnacle light.
"I was pleased to see the way in
which the crew took hold, Mr. Lea-

lie crossed over to the rail and fame
back wiping his Hps on Ills sleeve.
"Olson Is a good man, Mr. Hollis;
you made no mistake when you chose
hlin for second officer, but I never saw
a worse bunch of sea scum In any to'-
castle than we've got aboard here, sir."
"They took hold, all right."
"Aye, for the once; they're a bit
dazed yet, an' have had no time to talk
it over among themselves."
"We'll hear from them later, you
tdhle, leaving any ueiv.-sary research
into Captain lladley's private affairs
to a later date, but sought with some
anxiety through a roll of maps shoved
behind the chest. Olson holding a lan-
tern aloft, until I finally brought forth
an old chart of the North Atlantic. We
bent over this, outspread on the deck
between us, and Olson's stubby fore-
finger traced the prickings of two voy-
ages around the Orkneys into the
North sea. The chart revealed, also,
although in somewhat less detail, the
German coastline. 1 was far from sat-
isfied with this discovery, but nothing
better could be hoped for. The total
destruction of the cbartbouse forward
made this find a godsend indeed, and
we were fortunate in the fact that
Captain lladlcy preserved bis old
maps. Bidding Olson relieve the first
officer, I remained there alone for some
minutes familiarizing myself with the
two charts, and outlining In my mind
the safest course to pursue. As I sat
there the rising wind began to hurl
rain against the closed glass of the
port, and I could bear the splash of
the drops on the deck overhead. An
know 'em better than I."
"Well, the sooner we learn exactly
how we stand In this matter the better.
I'll relieve you as soon as I have
a bite to eat."
In spite of its general dlnginess of
paint and furnishings, the main cabin
had a look of cozlness and comfort as
I entered from the black gloom of the
decks. Bascom and Miss Vera occu-
pied seats on one side, while Olson,
washed and brushed Into n state of
rare discomfort, sat alone opposite. A
slim, narrow-chested man, his weak
mouth partially concealed by a strag-
gling mustache, and who answered to
the name of Dade, acted as steward,
but the boy, Moon, was doing most of
the work. I drew out the single va-
cant chair and sat down.
"Well," I said pleasantly, breaking
the rather awkward silence, "I do not
exactly know where we are going, but
we are on our way."
"The sea is rising, I judge," re-
"There is every promise of a rough
night, but nothing to worry over. Dade,
why did you set the table only for
four? There is another passenger
"He has refused to iness aft, sir."
"Oh, he has! Well, possibly, I may
have something to say as to that. Did
he give any reason?"
Dade endeavored to hide a grin. "Not
exactly, a reason, sir," he answered
softly, "but I took it from wliat be said
that he was not overly proud o' the
way he wus marked up, sir."
I devoted a few minutes to the meal,
but when Dade departed on an errand
forward, decided I might just us well
discuss the situation frankly.
"I am beginning to fear," I said qui-
etly, "that Mr. Fergus McCann Intends
to make us all tne trouble possible, and
is even now behind most of the dis-
satisfaction on board. Do you know
anything definite, Mr. Olson?"
The mate paused in his eating, with
knife and fork uplifted.
"I had not heard, sir. May I ask
if he is rich?"
"Quite so; he was a guest on the
yacht Esmeralda. Now that I have
answered these questions, Mr. Olson,"
and I stared into liis rather emotion-
less face intently, "perhaps you will be
kind enough to answer mine."
"I would know what I talk," he re-
turned stubbornly. "He, this Mr. Mc-
Cann, he offers ten thousand dollars
to be put back In New York."
"So.that's his game! Who brought
the word forward?"
"Cookie, I think, sir. I overheard
Jim White say that Mr. McCann had
a belt on him with more money in it
than they'd ever seen before in all
their lives. The d fool—I beg
your pardon, miss—didn't know no
more than to show it to 'em. Why, the
sight of it fairly drove them two wharf-
"There's half a dozen men forward,"
he went on slowly, "who w ould murder
their grandfathers, sir, to get hold o'
all that coin. The rest o' the crew are
I decent enough fellows as sailormen go,
but there's liquor aboard yet, and all
this 'ere war talk has scared 'em
against continuing the voyage."
"McCann told them?"
"He told Cookie an' Liverpool, an'
they circulated the news. 'Tis said
we're chuck up with contraband, sir,
an' that if we're took, every man jack
of us will be chucked into an English
or French prison."
"You expect a mutiny, then, Mr. Ol-
I "I don't know what'll stop It, sir,"
lie answered solemnly. "The men went
aft ter sorter take your measure, sir,
anil hear what it was you proposed do-
ing. They ain't had no chance to git
tergether an' talk since, but It's my
| notion they're ripe enough for the Job."
I looked him squarely In the eyes.
"And how about you, Mr. Olson?"
".Me, sir?" his lips grinned. "If I
hadn't Intended for to stay with yer,
sir, I never would 'a' took the job."
I reached out my hand, ncd our fin-

was no better time than now to start
my task. Yet I had scarcely taken n
step forward when 1 became aware
that their secret conference was over,
and that the two were separating. I
could not positively determine the
movement in the intense darkness, but
I felt assured that one of the two men
had moved forward, crouching along
the rail, leaving the second mint stand-
ing alone. Unquestionably the one
thus left would be McCann.
I waited motionless until the fellow
stealing away was well beyond earshot,
and then advanced straight across the
pitching deck. The fellow, taken quite
by surprise, stared at my indistinct fig-
ure, unable to determine my identity
until I spoke. There was that about
lils figure, black as the night was,
which convinced me he was the man
"Well, McCann," I said shortly, "you
seem to prefer ns-c.clating with tho
crew, rather than with your own class
aft. What is the game?"
"I was not aware there were any of
my own class on board," lie answered
"Perhaps you have not yet discov-
ered who are on board. Do you chance
to know who, owns tills vessel and

oiled coat, belonging to the skipper,
hung dangling from a hook, and I
slipped it on, extinguishing the light
before closing and locking the door.
Leayord was alone at the table in the
cabin, which had already been cleared
of its dirtied dishes.
I had advanced to the companion
steps when his voice stopped me.
"Captain," he said In hoarse whis-
per, "was you planning to go forward
Leayord glanced about uneasily.
"Well, I wouldn't, sir, if I was you—
not tonight anyhow. The men are that
ugly there's no knowin' what might
haiipen. Do you curry a gun, sir?"
"Why, no; I s;v>v one there in a
drawer of Captain Iladley's desk. You
think the situation is as bad as that?"
"I'd go back and get it, sir," he said
soberly, "an' then keep to the after-
deck till daylight."
An instant I stood staring at the
rain beating fiercely against the glass
of the companion, then turned hack
to the stateroom I had just left, slipped
the revolver out of the desk drawer
Into my pocket, and re-entered the

my throat and stepped out on deck,
the wind driving the rain full into my
face, and, for the moment, blinding me.
I Make McCann Prisoner.
It was evident enough in my mind
that there were two elements of evil
aboard—liquor and McCann's wealth.
Either alone would have been had
enough, but thus combined, they ren-
dered our situation more than perilous
—and 1 was facing this peril com-
paratively alone. Musters would doubt-
less perform his duty, but his work
would keep him below, and he would
prove of slight value on deck. My Im-
pression of Leayord and Olson was fa-
vorable enough ; they were, undoubted-
ly, the very best material on board;
yet, from long association with the
forecastle, it was only natural that
their sympathies should be with their
mates forward. An efficient sea offi-
cer Is not made overnight, and either
man might fail me at a pinch. As to
liascoin, he could never be counted on;
while as regards Vera—but at thought
of her, the cold perspiration beaded my
temples with a horror of what might
yet occur on board. No, the burden
was mine, mine practically alone. It
was up to me to strike first, to assert
my authority, and then maintain it.
This was the one thing which would
Impress the mind of the sailor—a quick
decision, a swift blow. This very night
we must win the ship, If ever, and the
first man for me to gain control over
must be Fergus McCann.
I reached this decision coolly nnd de-
liberately, yet with no clear plan of
action in my mind. At that moment
Olson sang out some order from the
rail overhead, and I could hear the
bustle of the watch along the black
My eyes distinguished no figures, but
suddenly a blaze of lightning seemed
to rip the sky asunder, and, In the
swift, ghastly glare, I perceived two
human figures against the starboard
jail, safe from observation beneath a
boat swung In davits. The man direct-
ly facing me, his countenance Illu-
mined for a single Instant by the flame,
was Liverpool Bed. The very posture
of the two men, the position chosen
amldslrtps, nnd In the shadow, led me
to Identify Liverpool's companion and

not you have any decent manhood left

1 do not believe ycu have. However,
the truth can do no harm, nnd we'll
understand each other better. Tills

Bascom of Philadelphia."
"Bascom! By God! You don't mean
"But I do; and more than that, all
bis fortune is invested in this olio
enterprise; that is why I consented to
assume command, and sail the Indian
Chief across to Germany."
There was n moment's silence.
"Bascom," lie repeated at last, "You
learned this from the ship's papers?"
"I learned it from his own lips—tho
man himself Is on board."
He breathed heavily from surprise; j
"Lord, this Is some news, Hollis," he
managed to ejaculate, "but surely you
hardly expect me to be sympathetic, I
"No. I hardly expect It," unable to i
disguise my intense disgust at his tone.
"However, Philip Bascom Is here, ru- [
ined by your persecution, crippled for
life by the cowardly bullet—"
"Now, look here, Hollis," he broke
in, "if you think 1 am going to stand
for your bullying any longer, you're
mistaken. It's my turn to talk."
"Yours! What will you talk with—
"Perhaps," he sneered, "and with
men also. In the first place, I might
as well tell you, I don't give a d
who owns this ship. Of course you
gave me a jolt by saying that this man
Bascom was on board, but, after all,
that's nothing to ine. We had our
fight, and he learned the same lesson
others have, that Fergus McCann Is
perfectly able to take care of himself.
Now I'm ready to teach the same thing
to Mr. Itobcrt Hollis of Chicago. This
is no small boat in mid-Atlantic, where
you can bully me because of your phys-
ical strength. You made a mistake,
Hollis, playing me for a fool. I've got
your number already."
"You nre quite sure of that?"
"You bet I am, but I'm not going
to say any more about It tonight. To-
morrow I'll talk with you again."
lie turned away, the shrug of his
shoulders picturing contempt, and a
studied insolence which set my blood
boiling. With the grip of one hand I
flung him back against the rail, and
held him there.
"No, we'll discuss It right now," 1
said sternly, "but I'll do the talking
in your place. You haven't anything to
tell me. I know what your plans are
already. I know what ycu are attempt-
ing to accomplish, and I know your
purpose. You have found a few ruf-
fians forward who will take your dirty
gold. To gain control of the others,
you have played up the war scare.
You think now that the time has come
when you can act—Is that so?"
He wriggled in an effort to break
free of my grip, and I let go of him
in utter contempt.
"You would find out," he snarled an-
grily, "If I called for help."
"But you are not going to call for
help, for if you even open your lips for
that purpose, you are going to die right
where you stand. Take that seriously,
McCann. You are endeavoring to In-
cite mutiny on board, and under the
law of the sea, I can kill you for It.
Now, I confess my feeling toward you
is not a tender one, but there is going
to be no bloodshed If I can avoid it.
Where have you bunked?"
Honors for Western Canada
Come Year After Year.
At the reeont Soil Products Exposi-
tion at Peoria, HI., in a keen contest
f« r the coveted first prize for wheat,
Western Canada has again carried off
all the honors. Not only lias she won
the llrst. hut also the second and third
prizes. These were won by Mr. S. Lar-
coinhe, of Birtle, Manitoba. In past
years tho Province of Saskatchewan
had the distinguished honor of carry-
ing olT the initial prize.
Harvesting and threshing are now
completed In Western Canada, and
while It is early in the season to give
exact figures as to the average yield
per acre of wheat, oats, barley and
flax it Is safe to assume that the for-
mer will yield about 'JO bushels per
acre. The price to the farmer will be
about $2.00 per bushel, giving him
$40.00 an acre of a return. When it Is
considered that the land upon which
this wheat Is grown averaged less than
$80 an acre, it takes very little figur-
ing to arrive at an estimate of the
profit there Is to the grain grower of
Western Cnnndu. The writer knows
where n farmer purchased 100 acres
of land in the spring of 1910, broke It
up the same year, put it in wheat In
1017. Ills crop was harvested a few
days ago. It yielded 4,800 bushels and
he sold It at $2.05 per bushel,'giving
him $0,840. The land cost him $4,800,

There has been a big rush during

parts of the United Stntes to Investi-
gate these 100% profit reports. No
better season of the year could be
