THE COLONY ENTERPRISE
Peace or War? Dorothy lo
Forced to Choooe.
•ynapalg — Geoffry Carlyle,
master of Bailing «hlps at twen-
i ty*alx, la MBtaaced to 20 years’
servitude In tha American col*
onles for participation In the
1 Monmouth rebellion In England.
Among the passenger* on board
the ship on which he Is sent
across are Roger Fairfax,
wealthy Maryland planter; his
niece, Dorothy Fairfax, and Lieu-
tenunt Sanches, a Spaniard, who
I became acquainted with the Fair-
fuses In London. Carlyle meets
Dorothy, who Informs him her
uncle has bought his services.
8anches shows himself an enemy
of Carlyle. The Fairfax party,
now on Its own sloop In the
Chesapeake bay, encountera a
mysterious bark, the Namdr of
Rotterdam. Carlyle discovers
that Sanches is “Black 8anchex,”
planning to steal the Fairfax
gold and abduct Dorothy. He
lights Sanches and leaves him
for dead. In a battle with
Sanches' followers, however, he
Is overpowered and thrown Into
the bay. In a desperate effort
to save Dorothy, Carlyle decides
to swim to the Namur. By a
tubs he gets aboard and min-
gles with the crew. The pirates
return to the Namur with Dor-
othy, the captured gold and
Sanches, badly wounded but still
alive. Carlyle Snda a friend In
Watkins, an English sailor. Es-
tada, acting captain, makes Car-
lyle first mate of the Namur.
The Cabin of tha Namur.
Both huge, black hands grasped the
spokes, and It- was evldept that It re-
quired all his giant strength to con-
trol the bucking wbeel. He was an
ugly-looklng brute, the lower portion
of his face apelike and the wool grow-
ing so low as to leave him scarcely
an Inch of forehead. His eyes lifted
an Instant from the binnacle card to
glance at me curiously. They exhib-
ited no flash of recognition.
For half an hour Estada hung about
aft, apparently paying no attention to
me, and yet watching my movements
closely. There was little to be done,
but I thought It beBt tq, keep the watch
reasonably busy, so they might thus
leurn that I knew my work. They
proved prompt and capable enough,
although I was eyed with some curi-
osity when I first went forward, and,
no doubt, was very thoroughly dis-
cussed behind my back. The Idlers
amidships were a totally different
class—a mongrel scum, profanely
chatting Ip Spanish or swaggering
about the deck, their very looks a
challenge. However, they kept out
of my way, and I found no occasion
to Interfere with their diversions.
After Estada-left the deck the ma-
jority amused themselves gambling,
and as I had received no orders to
Interfere I permitted ths games to pro-
ceed. Mendex Interfered only once
on occasion of a brief fight. My only
Instructions from the Portuguese on
his going below was to call him at
once If a kail was sighted. Apparent-
ly he was satisfied of my ability to
command the deck.
No occasion to call him arose dur-
ing my watch. It was still daylight,
but with a purple gleam across the
waters, when LeVere arrived on deck
for my relief. We were talking to-
gether abaft the wheel when Estada
appeared In the cotnpanlonway.
“Every promise of a dear night," he
said, glancing about at the horison.
“Better change the courae two points,
LeVere; we are lying In too close to
the coast for our purpose. The table
call will come very shortly, Senor
I washed up hastily In my state-
room and came out Into the cabin
perplexed as to what might occur
within the next few momenta. Tat
whatever the result there was no
avpldlng It. My every move was one
of extreme caution.
Estada and Eetevan awaited me. The
Intter wns nil rigged nut, and with
smooth black hair oiled and plastered
down upon his forehead. I never be-
held a more disagreeable face, sir one
which so thoroughly revealed the na-
ture of s man. As 1 touched hie hand,
at Rstndn's brief Introduction, It was
as If I fingered a snake.
“This Is your chair, Oates, end you
will find we live well aboard the Na-
mur—wine, women and song—hey,
Manuel t Why not, when all are at
'command? Steward, you told the lady
what ray orders were. Then bid her

was grinning In full enjoyment, but
the expression on the face of Estada
was that of grim cruelty. I felt my
handa grip like Iron on my chair back
and my teeth clinch in restraint. God,
but I would have Uked to grip the fel*
low where he stood—all tho bottled-
up hatred In my eoul struggling for
action. Yet that would only mean the
death of all hope, and I turned my
eyea sway from him and stared with
the others at the opening door.
Out Into the full light of the cabin
the woman came and halted barely a
.step In advance of the steward, her
head uplifted proudly, her eyea on. us.
Never before had I realised her beau-
ty, her personality, as I did then. Her
postpre was not that of defiance nor
of eurrender; she stood as a woman
defending her right to respect, sus-
tained by a wonderful courage. I
caught her glance, but there waa no
recognition In It; not by the flicker
of an eyelid did she betray surprise,
and yet In some mysterious manner a
flash of intelligence passed between
us. It was all instantaneous, for her
gate seemed to concentrate on Estada
as though she knew him as leader.
“You sent for me? For what?" she
naked, her Spanish dear aad well
“To Join us at meal," he anawered
unmoved. “It la better than to remain
“Better I You must have a strange
opinion of me to believe I would elt
with murderera and thlevee."
“Harsh words, eenortta," and Estada
grinned grimly. “Yet I expected them.
There are many trades In the world
by which men are robbed. We only
work at the on# we like best; nor will
I discuss that with you. However,
senortta, I can say that we have taken
no lives In this last affair."
“No lives f" In sudden, Incredulous
surprise. “You mean my ancle lives?"
. “If you refer to Fairfax—the one In
whose room the chest was hidden, I
can only reply truthfully that he lives.
“Poses or War?"
One of my men struck him down, but
It waa not a death blow. If that be
the reason of your disdain there la no
cause. This chair Is held for you."
“But why was I brought sway a
prisoner? To be a plaything? A sport
for your pleasure?"
"That was but the orders of our
chief; we await his recovery to learn
"Sanches I Was he your chief? A
“A buccaneer; we prey on the ene-
mies of Spain. It was at Captain San-
ches’ orders we waited the arrival of
your vessel from England. He loved
you; he would no doubt have deult
with you honorably; I have reuson to
believe thut to be his purpose now.
Nothing will change his purpose. He
la that kind, und he hits fhe power.
He determined that If you would not
come to him by choice you should be
mude to by force. You are here now
by hts orders and will remain until
you consent to his purpoHo—all that
renuilns for you to decide la whether
you choose to be prisoner or gueat
"And If he should die?"
Estada shrugged hla shouldera In-
Her lips tightened as though to'hold
hack s cry while one hand pressed to
the open door steadied her. There
was s look In the searching eyes I did
not Ilka to see. It was a moment be-
fore she could control her voice,
“I have heard them call you Hatndn.
Of what rank In this company are
“I am Psdro Estada, formerly tho
first officer, bow, by occasion of Cap-
tain Ranches’ wound, la full command.
These are two of my officers—Senor
Gates, one of your own countrymen,
and Manuel Estevan. And now that
I have anawered your questions, what
Is It to be bstween us—peace or wart”
Iler eyes dropped, sad I could dis-
tinctly note the trembling of her slen-
der figure. When she slowly raised
her glance sacs more It rested on my
face as though seeking approval, guid-
“If there be only the one choice,"
she said quietly. "I accept peace. I
cannot live locked In that room alnnq
haunted by my thoughta and memo-
ries. If I pledge you my word, aenor,
am I to - Tjoy the freedom of this
cabin and the deck?"
Estada looked at ua, a shade of
doubt In hla eyes. I mad* no sign, but
"Why not?" ho asked In his harsh
croak of a voice. "So long aa we be
at sea? What harm can the girl do?"
“Perhaps none; I will take a half
chance, at leant. You shall have the
freedom of the cabin. So long aa you
keep your word, while as to tho deck,
we will consider that later. Prove you
mean what yoa say by Joining as
My recollection of that meal la not
of words but of faces. Batada’s eyoi
sought constantly the girl’s face, and
to my consternation exhibited an In-
terert In her personality which proin-
tvcil trouble. I know M whether she
noticed this awakening admiration,
but she certainly played her part with
quiet modesty. I believe that even
the Portuguese reached the conclusion
that alte was not altogether regretful
for this adventure and that It was safe
for him to relax some degree of vigi-
lance, Ills manner became morn gra
clous, and long before the meal ended
his language had a tendency to com-
pliment and flatter. I contented my-
self with occasional sentences. The
young woman ant directly across from
me, oar words overheard by all, and
as I knew both men possessed some
slight knowledge of English I dare not
venture beyond commonplace conver-
sation in that tongue. With quick wit
ahe took her cue from me, so that
nothing passed between us, either by
word of mo.uth or glance of eye, to
Believing the feeling of confidence
would be Increased by such action, I
was first to leave the table, and It be-
ing ray watch below Immediately re-
tired to my room, noisily closing the
door after me, yet refraining from let-
ting the latch catch, thus enjoying a
slight opening through which to both
see and hear. Manuel did not linger
long, making some excuse to go for-
ward, but Estada Remained for some
time, endeavoring to entertain. Hla
egotism made a fool of the man, yet
even he finally became discouraged of
making her comprehend his meaning,
and lapsed Into a silence which gave
her an excuse to retire. This was ac-
complished so graciously as to leave
no sting, the fellow actually accom-
panying her to the door of her state-
room, bowing his compliments ns. she
disappeared within. The fool actu-
ally believed he had made a conquest
and preened himself like a turkey
“Gunsaules, you need not lock the
senorlta In her room or guard her In
any way hereafter. She is permitted
to come and go as she pleases aboard."
Estada entered his own stateroom,
leuvlng the door ajar. When he came
out he had exchanged his cout for a
rough Jacket. Thus attired for a turn
on deck, be disappeared through the
In Dorothy's Stateroom.
I stood crouched, with eye at the
crack watchful of every movement In
the lighted cabin, my own decision,
made. I must see and talk with Dor-
othy. Gunsaules turned down the light
and departed along the passage lead-
ing amidships. A moment later I
heard the sound of dishes grinding to-
gether preparatory to being washed.
No better opportunity for action was
likely to occur, although the situation
waa not without peril. I crept along
dose to the side walls, lifted the latch
noiselessly, and ilipped quickly within.
There was no light, except a glimmer
of stars through a large after port,
but against this faint radiance she
stood vaguely revealed. Her first
thought must have been Estada, for
there was a startled note In her chal-
“Who are you? Why do you come
“Speak low,” I cautioned. “You
must know my voice."
“Geoffry Carlyle I"
“Yes, but do not use that name—all
hope depends on my remnlnlug un-
known. You welcome me?”
She came straight forward through
the dim stnr shine, a spectral figure,
with both hunds outstretched,
“Welcome t” her tone that of Intense
sincerity. "Your presence gives me
all the strength I have. But for you
I should throw myself through thut
port Into the sen. But I know not
how you came here—tell me, you are
not one of these wretches?"
“No; you must believe that first of
all, and trust me."
“I do—but—hut tell me all you can."
“Is there a divan here, or anywhere
we can alt down together? I can see
nothing In this darkness."

“Where away?” shouted the O. D.
“Dead ahead!” came the reply.
The O. D. grabbed hla glasses, and
not finding the light ran from the

It up. Not seeing It, he yelled again:
“Where’s the light now?”
“Dead ahead, air.”
Calling the quartermaster to awing

“Where Is ths light now?”
“Come down her* and ahow it to
