Co., of Mexico City, who were interest
ed in submitting bids for the sewer

ened by a tilt between Mr. Smith and
Mr. Watson. -
Mr. Watson charged that the plant,
according to the plans, could not be
built for $91,000, and also charged that
Mr. Smith had stated that he might
leave out some of the equipment pre
EcriDed in the plans in the event Mr.
Smith secured the contract.
Mr. Smith did not hesitate In obtain
ing the floor and stated: "That, gen
tlemen, is an unqualified falsehood.
I have never said anything of the
Mr. "Watson then asked if Mr. Smith
had not told him he might leave out
part of the prescribed equipment.
Mr. Smith answered that he was not
on the witness stand and did not pro
pose to be catechised. He also charged
Mr. Watson with the statement that
"No gentleman accustomed to dealing
with Americans, would come into this
room and make a statement like this
man has made."
Purpose of Meeting.
The meeting was called in order to
allow Mr. Smith, who drew the plans,
to explain certain pro-visions of the
specifications. Mr. Anderson was the
first to speak and stated the plans
were not quite clear, owing to the
specifications reciting that the con
tractors must guarantee to produce cer
tain results as provided in the plans.
Mr.' Anderson stated it would be im
possible for any contractor to figure
that close to another engineer's plans.
Mr. And-erson later stated, however,
that since a conference had been held
with Mr. Smith, that he would be able
to make an intelligible bid according
to the plans.
Mr. Watson followed and stated that
it was a physical Impossibility to build
the plant for $91,000 and led on with
his remarks until the tilt with Mr.
Smith followed. Mr. Watson later an
nounced he would withdraw from the
meeting as his company was unable to
meet the competition.

S the sun slanted up between
the southward hills out from
the gossamer haze that lay
like filmy forest smoke above
the ocean came a snow white yacht
To Boyd Emerson she seemed like an
angel of mercy, and he stood forth
upon the deck of his launch searching
her hungrily for the sight of a wo
man's figure. When he had first seen
the ship rounding the point he had
uttered a cry, then fallen silent watch
ing her as she drew near, heedless of
his surroundings. His heart was leap
ing: his breath was choking him. It
seemed as if he must shout Mildred's
name aloud and stretch .iris arms out
toTier. 'Of course "slie "would seeTilm
as the Grande Dame passed. ShewouLd
be looking for him. he knew. She
would be standing there, wet with the
dew, searching with all her eyes.
Doubtless she had waited patiently at
her post from the instant land came
into sight. Seized by a sudden panic
lest she pass him unnoticed, he order
ed his launch near the yacht's course.
His eyes roved over the craft, but all
he saw were a uniformed officer upon
the bridge and the bronzed faces of
the watch staring over the rail. He
saw close drawn curtains over the cab
in windows, indicating that the passen
gers were still asleep. Then as he
stood there heavy hearted, drooping
with fatigue, his wet body chilled by
the morning's breath, the Grande
Dame glided past, and he found the
shell beneath his feet rocking in her
George Bait hailed him and brought
his own launch alongside.
"What craft is that?" he inquired.
"She is the company's yacht with
the N. A. P. A. officers aboard."
"Some of our boys is hurt pretty
bad," he observed. "I've told them to
take in their nets and go back to the
"We all need breakfast"
"I don't want nothing. I'm going
over to the trap."
Emerson shrugged his shoulders list
lessly; he was very' tired. "What is
the use? It won't pay us to lift it."
"I've watched that point of land for
five years, and I never seen fish act
this way before." Bait growled stub
bornly. "If they don't strike in to
day we better close down. Marsh's men
cut half our nets and crippled more
than half our crew last night." He be
gan to rumble curses. "Say. we made
a mistake the other day. didn't we?
We'd ought to have put that feller
away. It ain't too late yet."
"Walt. Wayne Wayland is aboard
that yacht. I know him. He's a hard
man. and I've heard strange stories
about him. but 'I don't believe he
knows all that Marsh has been doing.
I'm going to see him and tell hira
"S'pose he turns you down?"
"Then there will be time enough to
to consider what you suggest. I don!
like to think about it."
"You don't have to." said Bait, low
ering his voice so that the helmsmen
could not hear. "I've been thinking it
over all night, and it looks like I'd
ought to do it myself. Marsh is com
ing to me anj-how, and I'm older than
you Le. It alnt rfglft for a young Tel
ler like you to take a chance. If they
get me you can run the business
Boyd laid his hand on his compan
"No." he said. "Perhaps I wouldn't
stick at murder I don't know. But I
won't profit by another man's crime,
and if it comes to that I'll take my
.share of the risk and the guilt. What
ever you do. I stand with you. But
we'll hope for better things. It's no
easy thing for me to go to Mr. Way
land asking a favor. You see. his
daughter is Well. I I want to see
her very badly."
Bait eyed him shrewdly.
"I see! And that makes it dead
wrong for you to take a hand. If it's
necessary to get Marsh 111 do it alone.
With him put of the way I think you
can make a go of it. He's like a rat
tlersomebody's got to stomp on him.
Now-I'm off for thetrap. Letlne
know what the old man says.'
Boyd returned to the cannery "with
the old mood of self disgust and bitter
ness heavy upon him. He realized that
George's offer to commit murder had
not shocked him as much as upon Its
first mention. He knew that he had
thought of shedding human blood "with
as little compunction as if the Intend
ed victim had been some noxious ani
mal. He felt indeed, that if his love
for Mildred made him a criminal she,
too. would be soiled by his dishonor,
and for her sake he shrank from the
Idea of violence, yet he lacked the
energy at that time to put it from Mm.
Well, he would go to her father, hum
ble himself and beg for protection. If
he failed then Marsh must look out for
himself. He could not find it in his
heart to spare his enemy.
At the plant he found Alton Clyde
tremendously excited at the arrival of
the yacht and eager to visit his friends.
He sent him to the launch and after
a hasty breakfast joined him.-
On their way out Boyd felt a return
of that misgiving which had mastered!
him on his first meeting with Mildred
in Chicago. For the second time he
was bringing her failure instead of the'

Take the advice of successful men"
who have carried the same watch for
years, and who say that a good watch
begets habits of punctuality and regu
larity, that it requires, little attention and
repair, and is always dependable.
It's foolish to waste money on a cheap
watch now, thinking you will buy a
good watch "some day." A reliable

pays well all through life.
