, CHAPTER I.
A l"ear| NecklaM
Less than an hour before tbe
Mauretaula reached Quarantine,
James Duncan, whose rank was
that of customs Inspector and
present assignment the more im
portant one of assistant to Daniel
ITaylor, a deputy surveyor, threw
away the stub ofa cigar and
] i cached for the telephone.
f When central had given him
i his number, he called out:
Say, Ford, I've something
mighty Important for you. Direct
ly the Mauretania gets into Quar
antine, k<> through the declara
tions aud phone me right away
whether a man named Stephen
Detihy declares a pearl necklace
valued at $200,000. A big case,
you say? 1 should bet It is a big
ea»e. Never you mind who's
it, Ford. It may be R.
| J., or it may not. It's your Job to
I phone me as soon as .voir get a
'ipeek at those declarations. I-et
i: llamniett work with you. Good-
I bye."
I He hung up the receiver and
'leaned hack iv bis chair. He was
ja spare, hatchet-faced man, who
1 held his present position because
x be knew enough to work in the
i dark and never ask for explan
i at ions.
When a step In the outside pass
age warned him that his chief
1 might possibly be coming in, he
1 settled down In an attitude of
i work. But there entered only
i Harry fllbbs.
j "Hello, Jim." he said when he
entered.
"Thought you were searching
!|tonrlsts on tbe Olympic this aft
liernoon." Duncan replied.
|j Cibbs mopped bis perspiring
! head. "I was," he answered. "1
'|lnoiight a dame along for Taylor
*| to see. Where is he?"
[I "Down with Malone now; he'll
I lie hack soon."
(ilhhs turned about to see if
the steps he heard at the door
1 were those of the man he had
i come to see. It was only Peter,
i the doorkeeper.
i "Mr. Duncan," said the man,
i "Miss Kthel Cartwright has just
phoned that she's on her way and
1 will lie here in fifteen minutes."
1 tiihhs could see that the news
i of which he could make but little
i had excited Duncan. Directly the
i doorkeeper had gone, Duncan
! called his chief on the telephone.
"Hello. Hello, C.hlef, Miss
1 Kthel Cart wright just phoned
1 she'd be here In fifteen minutes.
I . . . . Yes, sir
i I'll have her wait."
! When he had rung off, Gibhs
could see his interest wag increas
ing. "What do you think of her
falling for a bum Btall like that?"
"Who?" Glhbs demanded.
Which? What stall?"
Why, Miss Cartwrlght!" said
Duncan.
"Well, who is she?" Gibbs
cried. "Is she a smuggler?"
"No. She's a swell society girl,"
said Duncan in a superior man
ner. "The chief wants to use
her iv the Denby case, so he bad
nic write her a letter, saying we'd
received a package from Paris
containing dutiable goods, a dia
mond ring, and would she kindly
call this afternoon and straighten
out the matter." Duncan now as
sumed an air of triumph. "And
she fell for a fake like that!"
"I get you," said Gihba. "But
what does he want her for?"
Duncan lowered bis voice and
grew very confidential
"Last week the chief got a
cable from Harlow, a salesman in
Cartler's jewelry shop in Paris.
Harlow's our secret agent there.
His cable said that an American
I named Steven Denby had bought
a pearl necklace there for
|soo,oeo. M
I "Gee!" Gibbs cried, impressed
i by such a sum, "but who's Stev
i en Denby? Some new million
■ aire? I never heard of him."
"Neither did I," Duncan told
1 him; "and we can't find out any
-1 thing about him and that's what
i makes us so suspicious. You
ought to be sble to get some dope
• on a man who can fling $200,000
away on a string of pearls."
"Did he slip it by the customs,
j then?"
I "He hasn't landed yet," Dun
r can answered. "He's on the
. Mauretania."
f "Why, she's about due," Gibbs
» cried.
"I know," Duncan retorted.
• "This fellow Denby In traveling
■with Montague Vaughan—son of
the big banker—and Mrs. Mich
ael Harrington."
"You mean the Mrs. Michael
Harrington?" Gibbs demanded
eagerly.
"Sure," Duncan exclaimed,
"there's only one."
Glhbs was disappointed at this
ending to the story.
"If he's a friend of Mrs. Har
rington and young Vaughan, he
ain't no smuggler. He'll declare
the necklace."
"The chief has a hunch he
won't," Duncan said. "He thinks
this Denby is some slick confi
dence guy who has wormed his
way Into the Harringtons' confi
dence so he won't be suspected."
"Maybe he ain't traveling with
the party at all, but just picked
'em up on the boat."
Duncan shook his head. "No,
he's a friend all right. She's tak
ing him down to the Harrington
place at W'estbury direct from the
dork. One of the stewards on
the Mauretania Is our agent and
he sent us a copy of her wireless
to old man Harrington."
"But how does this Miss Cart
wright come in on the Job?" i
asked Gibbs.
"I don't know except that she
is going down to the Harringtons'
this afternoon and Taylor's got I
Rome scheme on hand. I tell you
he's a pretty smart boy." i
You bet he Is," Glbbs returned i
promptly, "and maybe he's smart- i
er than you know. Kver hear of
R. J.?"
It J.?" Duncan repeated, t
"You mean that secret service li
agents*"
"Yo»," Gibbs told him with a
mysterious air.
"Don't you know who he IsT" i
"No," Duncan retorted, "and t
neither does any one elao. No
body but the president and the
secretary of the treasury knows i
who be really is,"
THE TAOOMA TIMES.
"UNDER COVER"
Gibbs rose from his chair and
patted his chest proudly. "Well,
I know, too." he declared.
lor is R. J."
"Taylor!" Duncan cried. You're
crasy!"
"Ob, indeed!" Gibbs said sar
castically. "Do you re^kojnber
the Stuyvesant case?"
Duncan nodded. —
"And do you remember that
when Taylor took his vacation
last year R. J. did some great
work in the Crosby case? Put
two and two together, Jim, and
may be you'll see daylight."
"There he is," Duncan whisp
ered, busying himself with a sheaf
of declarations as the sound of
steps was heard In the passage.
* Dsniel Taylor entered quickly
without acknowledging the pres
, ence of his Inferiors, and crossed
to bis desk by the window. His
j path had been strew with other
men's regrets; but Taylor climbed
steadily.
Taylor pushed the buzzer on
his desk and then looked across
al the uncomfortable Gibbs.
| "Want to see me?" he snapped.
"Yes, sir," Gibbs made answer
as Peter, the doorkeeper, entered
| in answer to Taylor's summons.
"Then wait outside," Taylor
said, "I'll see you later."
"Yes, sir," Gibbs said, and
', made his exit.
The deputy-surveyor turned to
i ward the attendant. "Peter, the
; instant Miss Cartwrlght arrives
show her In. That's all."
He then called to Duncan.
1 "Did Bronson of the New York
Burglar Insurance company send
1 over some papers to tne relating
to the theft of Miss Cartwrlght'■
jewels?"
Duncan took a long envelope
and laid It on his chief's desk.
"Here they are, sir."
Taylor looked at the docu
ments eagerly. "By George!" lie
, cried, when he had looked into
theni, "I knew I was right. I
'iknew there was something queer
about the way her diamonds were
stolen."
He was still going over the
papers when Peter showed Miss
Cartwrlght in.
Taylor rose to his feet as she
entered and bowed with what
grace he could as he motioned
her to a chair.
CHAPTER 11. , M
i rapped. (
Miss Cartwrlght was a tall,
strikingly pretty woman ,pt 27,
who looked at the deputy-jfurvsy
or with perfect self-possession. It
was plain she regarded him mere
-1 iy as some official whom she was
bound to see regarding a matter
of bilbiness.
"Sorry if I kept you waiting.
Miss Cartwrlght," Taylor said,
briskly. "My name is Tayldr."
"You wanted to see me about a
ring, I think, didn't you?"
"Yes," he answered. "The in
tention evidently was to smuggle
it through the customs."
"Do you really think so?" she
demanded, interested. "1 haven't
the faintest idea who could have
sent It to me."
"Of course you haven't." he
said, in his blandest, most reas
suring manner. "It's a mistake,"
he continued, "but the record will
probably shed some light on the
matter."
And he sent Duncan from the
room, presumably in search of
the papers.
"Do you know," she asserted,
"I feel quite excited at being
here and sitting in a chair in
which you probably often examine
smugglers. One reads about it
constantly." s
"It's being done all the time."
he responded, "among all sorts
of people. Now, Miss Cartwrlght,
since we are talking of smuggling,
I'd like to have a little business
chat with you if I may."
The girl looked at him aston
ished. "With me?" fdie demand
ed.
"I mean it," Taylor asserted.
"You said you've read about all
this smuggling and so on. Believe
me, you've not read a thou
sandth part of what's going on
all the time, despite our efforts
to check It. The difficult part
is that many of the women sre so
socially prominent that it isn't
easy to detect them. They move
in the sort of world you move In."
He leaned forward and spoke im
pressively. "But It's a world
where neither I nor my men could
pass muster for a moment. Do
you follow me?"
"I hear what you say," she
said, "but —"
He interrupted her, "Miss
Cartwirght, we are looking for
some one who belongs in society
by right. Some one who is clever
enough to provide us with infor
mation and yet never be suspect
ed. We want some one, for in
stance, like you."
"Really, Mr. Taylor," she cried,
"you probably mean well, but —"
Again he cut her short.
"I'm sorry you don't care to
entertain my proposition, but,Jit'_s
your business, after all. By ,tbe
way," he added, after a moment's
pause, "there's another little mat
ter I'd like to take tip with m,
Do you recall a George Hionaon,
the claim agent of the New York
Burglar insurance company,
company which insured the jes/els
that were stolen from you?'*.
"I think I do," she returned
slowly, "but—"
"Well, that company has haid a
great deal of trouble with society
women who have got money by
pawning their jewels and then
putting in a claim that they were
stolen and so recovering from the
company on the alleged loss./'
The girl looked at him, frown
ing. "Are you trying to insinuate
that —"
"Certainly not," Taylor purred
amiably. "But there were some
things Bronson could not under
stand."
Really." Miss Cartwrlght re
turned. "I don't quite under
stand how this concerns the cus
toms."
"It doesn't." ho agreed readily.
"I an noting only as Bronaon's
friend, and If you'll answer my
questions I nay be able to recover
the jewels for yon." , ;
Tho girl's face cleared.
"That will be oftaMttd," she «M
claimed. "Of ooaree, I'll toll ywfl
everything I knew." , \
i "How did you come to discover
the loss of the diamonds?" Tay
lor asked.
"I didn't discover It myself,"
she told him. "I was at Bar Har-
bor."
"Oh," said Taylor. "You were
away. I see! Who did find out?"
"My sister. It was she who
missed them."
Taylor looked thoughtful, and
then asked quickly: "I wonder if
you'd mind telephoning your sis
ter to come down here now?"
"Why, she cam? with me,"
Miss Cartwrlght returned. "She's
outside."
"That's fine," he said brightly.
He pushed the buzzer. "Perhaps
she'll be able to help us."
He looked up as Peter came in.
"Ask Miss Cartwrlght's sister to
come in for a moment. Tell her
Miss Ethel wants her."
In a very few minutes Amy
Cartwrlght was brought Into the
deputy-surveyor's room by Peter.
She was a pretty girl not more
than 18, and like her sister,
dressed charmingly.
"You wanted me, Ktliel?" she
asked.
"Yes, dear," the elder returned.
"Amy, this is Mr. Taylor, who
thinks he may be able to get back
my diamonds for me."
Amy Cartwrlght shot a quick,
almost furtive look at Taylor and
then gripped her sister's arm.
"Your diamonds!" she cried.
"Yes," her sister said. "Yot
must answer all Mr. Taylor's
questions."
Taylor looked at Amy magiste
rially. "How did you discover
your sister's jewels were stolen?"
"Why," she replied nervously,
not meeting his eye, "I went to
her dressing table one morning
and they weren't there."
"Oh!" ho exclaimed meaning
ly. "So they weren't there! Then
what did you do?"
"Whjr, 1 telephoned to the
company she insured them in."
"There's one other point," he
said, turning to the elder sister.
"You received the compensation
money from the company, didn't
you?"
"Naturally," she said tran
quilly.
"Please don't think me Imper
tinent," he said, "but you still
have it intact, 1 presume?"
"Only part," the girl returned.
"I gave half ot it to my sister."
"1 rather thought you might
have done that," he said. "That
was generous. Miss Caiiwright.
But you realize of course that If
I get your Jewels back the money
must be returned to the burglar
insurance people in full" —he
looked significantly at the shrink
ing younger girl—"from both ot
you."
Amy Cartwright clasped her
hands nervously. "Oh, I couldn't
do that," she exclaimed.
i Ethel turned to her in aston
ishment. "But Amy, why not?"
"I haven't got it all" now."
"But, dear, what did you do
with it?" Ethel persisted.
"I—l paid a lot of bills," the
girl stammered.
"Paid a lot of bills!" her sister
exclaimed. "But, Amy, you dis
tinctly told me —"
"One minute," Taylor inter
rupted, and then looked angrily
up to see who had entered his
office unbidden. It was Duncan.
"The collector and the secre
tary want to see you right away,
sir," he announced.
"Oh, very well," his superior
snapped. "I shall have to ask you
indies to excuse me for five min
utes,"
"Certainly," Ethel Cartwirght
returned.
When both men had gone from
tlie room Amy clung half-hyster
ically to her strong, calm sister.
"Ethel, your jewels weren't
Btolen." There was a pause as If
the girl were yylng to gather
courage enough to confess. "I
took them. I pawned them."
"Amy!" cried the other.
"You?"
"I had to have money. I took
them. A woman told me I could"
get it by pretending to the com
pany the things were stolen. She
said" they'd never find it out and
would pay. I tried it, and they
paid."
Miss Cartwright looked down at
her, amazed, indignant, horrified.
Why, wly? Why did you do
it? Tell me quickly, why?"
Am dropped her head. "I lost
a lot of mono playing auction
bridge."
"Playing with whom?" Ethel
demanded sharply.
"People you don't know," the
younger answered evasively. "It
was while you were away. 1 lost
a thousand dollars."
"Tell me what happened then?"
Ethel asked In a low tone.
"I couldn't pay, of course, and
the other woman said they'd have
to ask mother or you for the
money and if you wouldn't pay I
should have to go to jail. I didn't
know what to do. I nearly went
out of my head. I think. At first
1 thought ot killing myself, but I
was afraid. And then I saw your
jewel case and I pretended they
were stolen. I got half, the money
from the pawn shop and the other
half fyoni you when the company
settled. It was wicked of me.
Kthel. but what could I do?"
Ethel put her arm about the
poor sobbing girl very tenderly.
"It will be all right," Ethel as
sured iter. "But neither mother
nor I have the money if the
burglar insurance people want to
lie paid back. I daresay we can
arrange something, so don't be
frightened. And remember, this
man Taylor can't know certainly.
He only suspects, and we ought
to be able to beat him if we are
very careful."
Amy began to cry.
"Stop crying," the other In
sisted. "I'll Invent a Btory to
fool him. He won't be able to
find out whether It's true or not,
so he'll have to let us go."
When Taylor entered a minute
later he found the two girls look
ing out of the big window across
the harbor. They were discuss
ing the dimensions of a big liner
making her way out.
"lorry tn hmee had te leave
you," he said briskly, "especially
iM things were getting a hit in
lansilng **
"I quits fafl to see," Miss Cart
wright observed chillingly, "what
[all this rather impertinent cross
questioning of my sister has to
do with—"
"You will in a minute," he in
terrupted.
"I know who stole them,"
Ethel went ou. "It was my maid."
"Your maid!" the deputy-sur
veyor cried. "Why didn't you
tell the company that? What was
your" maid's name?"
"Marie Gamier."
He took up a scribbling pad and
inscribed the name on it. "Marie
Gamier," he muttered, and push
ed the buzzer. "Why didn't you
tell me this before?"
"What was the good?" Miss
Cartwrlght returner. "I was fond
of Marie—she was almost one of
the family—so I simply dismissed
her Instead of—"
She was interrupted by Dun
can's entrance. "Yes, sir?" said
he to his chief.
Taylor handed him the leaf be
had torn from the pad. "Attend
to this at oncec," he ordered.
Tlie inquisition went on. Even
Ethel's nerves were giving out,
when the telephone bell rang and
Taylor answered it.
The girls watching him saw
that the news was pleasant for he
chuckled as be bung up the re
ceiver.
"Miss Cartwrlght," he cried. "I
Just had my assistant telephone to
your mother. You never had a
maid named Gamier. You put the
blame on a woman who doesn't
exist, and you did it to shield the
real thief?" He pointed to the
crouching Amy. "This Is the real
thief!"
The two girls answered him
never a word. Amy was too fright
ened and Ethel, her tactics un
avaling, found her best defense in
silence.
"Well, of course the stuff Is
pawned some place," Ta>lor said
after a pause. "So far, Branson
has only searched the pawn shops
in New York." He went to the
telephone again. "Hello, Bill," he
said when he hail secured the
number, "go over to Bronson and
get a description of the jewels re
ported stolen from a Miss Kthel
Cartwright. Have all. the pawn
shops searched in Trenton," —Ho
fastened his harsh look on Amy
Cartwright — 'Boston, Washing
ton, Albany. Philadelphia—"
As he called out the last city
the girl .gave a gasp of terror.
"So you pawned them in Phila
delphia?" Taylor cried.
"No, no!" she moaned.
"I did it," Kthel Cartwright ex
claimed.
"So, you didn't," Taylor said
sharply. "You're only trying to
save her. You can't deceive me."
He turned to Amy, "Young wom
an, you're under arrest."
"No, no," the elder sister be
sought. "Take me. She's only a
child, don't spoil her life. I'll do
