CHAPTER XV (Continued) .
" "ITHER you will rollevo mo of
L the presence of Senor Con-
j nerton, or you will direct
Mm to . put into execution
your threat to bavo me assassinated.!
The privileges I have granted to you
and your friends and the verbal agree
ment which I am about to incorporate
In this letter to you I will not revoke,
so long as you restrict your attention
to your dutlos as chief engineer.
"We have talked much together, and
I think we understand one another. I
will deal with you fairly, but hereafter
I will be Governor of Valo in fact as
well as In name. While I am writing
the letter you will have ample time to
come to a decision."
He turned abruptly and started oft in
the direction of the companlonway that
led to his cabin. At a nod from Spar
hawk, Connerton followed.
Left to himself. Srmrhawk naced
thoughtfully to and fro, as the gov-.
ernor had done. He saw that he was
confronted with a crisis. Don Antonio
was Dlavinir his last card. In nlaln
words, he had demanded his liberty or
Despite the governor's recent geniality
ana apparent sincerity sparnawK a dis
trust of the man was in no degree
diminished. He was nerfectly well
aware that Don Antonio's conduct
would be dominated by self-interest.
and that as soon as he was set at lib
erty the Americans might be made to
feel the power that was his In the
southern districts of Quincatan.
Bat was It not possible that the Gov
ernor suspected that it was to his in
terest to cultivate their friendship, for
the present at least? Quexores dourt
less was still In the United States.
placing Callstar bonds, and Don An
tonio naturally would hesitate to do
anything that would excite the suspic
ions of American investors until Quex
ores had completed his task. Sparhavtk
was confident that his references to his
relations with those Investors and to
the leakage of news from Valo had not
been without 'some effect.-
Glven his liberty, Don Antonio might
succeed in. getting the Americans in
such a' position as they had succeeded
in putting him. Taking a leaf from
Bparhawk s book, he might place rifle
muzzles nt the heads of tho Americans
and attempt to compel them to send
favorable reports of Callstar conditions
to American investors.
On the other hand, not only was Don
Antonio Portllla an official of the Calls
tar Company, and as such one of the
employers of Sparhawk and his com
panions, but he was governor of one of
the provinces of Quincatan. Don Anto
nio's will was the law of Valo, and Valo
was isolated from the outside world. In
some respects Moreno was similarly
situated, for Bparhawk had been In
formed that It had neither a postal nor
n telegraph service.
But foreign vessels entered Its port
and by means of these it was posslHo
to net into communication with San
Fellcldad and the United States. Helns
here, he could not offer tho eamo Jus
tification for his detention of the gov
ernor that he was able to offer for his
action In Valo.
If he wero to offer violonce to the gov
ernor now, what would be his defense?
Though he was acting in the interest
of the American bondholders, such ac
tion was entirely voluntary. Tho Calls
tar Company had engaged his services
ai civil engineer, and had furnished
transportation for himself an1 party.
He was not legally entitled to any
other recognition on the part of tho
Callstar officials then as its paid em
ploye. It was plain that whatever lsw
there was In Quincatan was on the side
of Don Ar.tonlo.
Sparhawk knew that hereafter Dun
Antonio world tolerate him only be
cause he feared tho effect of tlu com
munication of Ma sosplclons to In
vestors In the United States. He was
reasonably certain, however, that what
might have happened In Valo would not
The governor had passed through thu
period when his blind rage might havo
resulted in en urder for the death of the
Americans. No matter how gieat his
anger against them might ba In tho
ruture, no was scarcely likely to subject
them to violence.
There was not tho lightest doubt in
Bparhawk's mind that Don Antcnlo in
tended to misapply the funds that had
been collected by Quexores In the
United fc'tates. and the enpineiM was
resolved that he would use every means
in his power to thwart such a pur
rose. But it was clear that, for a time
at least, the flcht nr.uBt bo diplomatic,
rather than physical,
Don Antonio, by granting tho conces
sions whlih Sparhawk had asked, was
sow In a position to assert that he had
manifested every evidence of good faith.
Naturally the governor would be dis
inclined to reveal the manner in which
these concessions had been wrung from
him, for such an admission would re
sult in loss of prestige among those
who stood In awe of him.
It was equally clear that It would be
impolitic for Sparhawk to make any
such revelation, because by doing so he
would be admitting that they were ob
tained by duress, and tho laws of near
ly every country In the world 'provide
that contracts and all other forms of
agreement made under duress are to be
regarded as void.
Once, while he was engaged in Ills
analysis of the situation, a thought of
.Barbara came to him. What effect
would the release of Don Antonio have
on her affairs?
He reflected that Don Antonio had
seemed not only willing but anxious
that Barbara should bo transferred
from the Gerfalcon to the vessel bound
for Allariz. which they had mot only
a few hours before. Having failed to
make her his wife, he would now be
nerfectly satisfied to see her return to
England, for In that event whatever
influence sne mignt nave over tne (join
ans was not likely to be exercised.
At length tho sound of advnnc'r"
footsteps apprised him of the return of
Don Antonio and Connerton. The gov
ernor advanced stolidly, and, bowing
gravely, placed In Bparhawk's hands
the letter he had been writing.
Without speaking Sparhawk read the
lines carefully. All the concessions
which Sparhawk had asked were fully
set forth and granted in the language
of the letter.
Bparhavftc nodded, and fixed hla etue
on Don Antonio, r "I thank your excel
lency' he said gravely. He paused,
then added: "jVbcn my friends and I
arrived in Valo we had some reason to
believe that all gates leading to the
outside world wero closed and locked
behind us. '
"More than that, wo wero threatened
with torture and execution when we
first met you, by the monastery wall.
Since then It has pleased your excel
lency to try to understand us better,
and you have invited our confidence.
"In accepting In good) faith the con
cessions embodied In this letter, I
withdraw all threatening language
which, from time to time, I have be
lieved myself compelled to employ, and
I will ask your excellency to try to for
get any disrespect that may have been
manifest in our actions toward you.55
Don Antonio, Blowly stroking his
heavy gray mustache, looked at Spar
"Am I to undersand, then, that you
and Senor Connerton no longer regard
mo as being under restraint?" ho ask
ed. "Yes, your excellency. No further
attempt kWill bo made to restrain you."
'But you and Senor Connerton are
armed. As an assurance of your own
good faith, would you be .willing to
empty your Weapons?"
Sparhawk hesitated, but only for a
moment. Then, drawing out his re
volver, he discharged the contents ot
S each chamber at the surface of the
"Now, Tom," ho said, when his weap
on was empty.
Connerton stolidly followed the ex
ample of his leader. Don Antonio turn
ed abruptly toward the mlddlo of the
vessel, ' and. sharply called out several
words whose meaning was unintelligible
to tho two Americans.
A moment later a sudden vollcv of
firearms sounded from nmldshlps. The
volley was followed by a succession of
scattering shots from various parts of

was seen advancing quickly from tho
door of the deck-house.
It was Lieutenant Brabant! !

his eyes were flashing, spoke In a calm,
Don Antonio was again stroking his
mustache. "It means, senor, that It
