That talk w^th the strong mother
worked a change in Nell and in Beld
ing. Nell, who had done little but
brood and watch the west and take
violent rides, seemed to settle into a
waiting patience that was sad, yet
serene. Belding, who had been break
ing under the strain of worry, recov
ered himself so that to outward ap
pearance he was his old self. He
alone knew, however, that his humor
wa forced, and that the slow burning
wrath he felt for the Chases was flam
ing into hate.
Belding argued with himself that if
Ben Chase and his son, Radford, had
turned out to be big men in other
ways than in the power to carry on
great enterprises he might have be
come reconciled to trfem. But the
father was greedy, grasping, hard,
cold the son added to those traits an
overbearing disposition to rule, and he
showed a fondness for drink and
cards. These men were developing
the valley, to be sure, and a horde of
poor Mexicans and many Americans
were benefiting from that develop
ment nevertheless, these Chases were
operating in a way which proved they
cared only for themselves.
Belding went to Casita with a num
ber of his white thoroughbreds and
shipped them to ranchers and horse
breeders in Texas. Then, being near
the railroad, and having time, he went
up to Tucson. There he learned some
interesting particulars about the
Chases. They had an office in the
city influential friends In the cap
itol. They were powerful men in the
rapidly growing finance of the West.
They had interested the Southern Pa
cific railroad, and in the near future a
branch line was to be constructed
from San Felipe to Forlorn River.
These details of the Chase develop
ment were Insignificant when com
pared to a matter striking close home
to Belding. His responsibility, had
been subtly attacked. A doubt had
been cast upon his capability of exe
cuting the duties of immigration in
spector to the best advantage of the
state. Belding divined that this was
only an entering wedge. The Chasv
were bent upon driving him out of
Forlorn River but, perhaps to serve
better their own ends, they were pro
ceeding at leisure. Belding returned
home consumed by rage. But he con
trolled it. For the first time in his
life he was afraid of himself. He had
his wife and Nell to think of and the
old law of the West had gone for
"Dad, there's another Rojas round

after the greetings were over and the
usual questions and answers passed.

a kind of amused contempt^,
