vltb Willis Marsh oo board, came to
anchor the bunk bouses were up and
peopled, while the new site bad be
come a beehive of activity.
The mouth of the Kalvlk river Is
several miles wide, yet It contains but
a smalt anchorage suitable for deep
draft ships, the rest of the harbor be
ing underlaid with mud bars and tide
tiats over which none but small boats
may pass, and as the canneries are
distributed up and down the stream
for a considerable distance It Is neces
sary to transport all supplies to and
from the ships by means of tugs and
lighters. Owing to the narrowness of
the channel the Juliet came to her
moorings not far from the Bedford
To Marsh, already furious at the
trick the ice bad played him, this forc
ed proximity to his rival brought home
with added Irony the fact that he bad
been forestalled, while It emphaslz.ed
his knowledge that henceforth the con
flict would be carried on at closer
quarters. It would be a contest be
tween two men. both determined to
win by fair means or foul.
It was on tbe afternoon following
bis arrival that Marsh after a tour of
inspection landed from his lauuch and
strolled up to where Boyd Emerson
was at work. lie was greeted cour
teously, If a bit coolly, and found, as
on their last meeting, that his own
bearing was reflected exactly In that
"I see you have a number of my old
fishermen," Marsh observed.
"Yes; we were fortunate."
"You are very lucky."
-Well, don't you think you were
lucky to beat that strike?"
It wasn't altogether luck. However.
I do consider myself fortunate In es
caping at the last moment," Boyd
laughed easily. "By the way, what
happened to the man they mistook for

much attention to the matter. I rather
think you will have a lot to explain

"With 50,000 cases of salmon aboard

thing. Meanwhile the police may go
to tbe devil!"
"You got away from Seattle, but
there Is a commissioner at Dutch liar
bor, also a deputy marshal, who may
have better success with a warrant
than those policemen bad." Tbe
trust's manager could not keep down
tbe angry tremor in bis voice, and tbe
other, perceiving It, replied In a man
ner designed to Inflame him still more:
"Yes, I have beard of those oflkers.
I understand they are both In your

"Do you mean to Insinuate"
"I don't mean to Insinuate anything
Listen! We are where we can talk
plainly. Marsh, and I am tired of alii
this subterfuge. You did what you
could to stop me, you even tried to
Lave me killed"
"You dare to"-
"But I guess It never occurred to
you that I may be Just as desperate
as you are. I broke through In spite
of you. and I'm on the Job If you
want to cry quits. I'm willing, but I
won't be balked, and If any of your
hired marshals try to take we before I
put up my catcb I'll put you away
Willis Marsh recoiled Involuntarily.
"You are Insane!" he cried.
"Am I?" Emerson laughed harshly.
"Well. I'tii Just crazy enough to do
what 1 say. Don't come bark here
until 1 send for you. Something might
fall ou you "
"Then it Is to be war. eh?"
."Suit yourself." Boyd pointed to the
As Marsh made his way to the wa
fer's edge he stumbled like a blind
man; his lips were bleeding where bis
small, sharp teetb had bltteu them,
and be panted like an hysterical wo
man. During the uext fortnight the salllug
ships began to assemble, standing In
under a great spread of canvas to
' berth close alongside the two steam
ships On the tnorulng after the arrival of
the last ship Emerson aud his com
panions were treated to a genuine sur
prise. Cherry bad come down to the
site as usual-she could not let a day
go by without visiting the place aud

come ashore. They were watching Big
George direct the launching of a scow

fell upon him noisily.
Fraser drew himself up with lnjurt'd
dignity, thou spoke In dramatic uc

"On that bloinly wind Jammer."
"But the police?" queried Boyd.

"What's the use?" he demanded,
with a glare at Clyde. "That boite

"I did. I want a bath and some

He was granted his desires.

The middle of June brought the brst
king salmon, scouts sent on nhend of
the "sockeyes;" but Boyd made no ef
fort to take advantage of this run. la
boring manfully to prepare for the ad
vance of the main urmy, that terrific
horde that was soon to come from the
mysterious depths either to make ot
ruin him. Once the run proper started
there would be no more opportunity
for building or for setting up innchln
ery. He must be ready and waiting
by the first of July.
For some time his fin machines had
been busy night und day turning out
great heaps of gleaming caus. while
the carpenters and machinists com
pleted their tasks. The gill netters
were overhauling their gear, the beach
was lined with fishing boats. On
their dock great plies of seines and
drift nets were being Inspected. Three
miles below Big George with a picked
crew nnd a plledrlver was building the
flshtrap. It consisted of half mile
"leads." or rows of piling, capped with
stringers upon w hlcb netting was hung
and terminated In "hearts." "corrals"
and "splllers." the Intricate arrange
ments of webbing and timbers out of
which the fish were to be taken.
As for Boyd the fever in ids veins
mounted dally as he saw his dream
assuming couerete form. Always he
found Cherry at his shoulder, unob
trusive and silent for the most part,
yet Intensely observant and keenly
alive to every action. She seemed to
have the faculty of divination, know
Ing wheu to be silent and w lieu to Join
I tier mood with tils, and she gave him
valuable help, for she possessed a
practical mind. One day when their
preparations were nearly completed a
foreman came to Boyd and said ex
citedly: "Boss. I'd like you to look nt the
Iron Chinks right nwny."
"What's up V"
"I don't know, but something Is
wrong" A hurried examination show

But how? That takes skilled l.h?r

George grinned. "I'm too old a bird

George, staring Inteutly. "louder

a raft of piles."
"I thought all the company traps
were up stream.
"So they are. I can't tell what
they're up to."
A half hour later, when the new
flotilla bad come to anchor a short
distance below, Emerson's companion
began to swear.
"I might have known It."
"Marsh alms to "cork' us."
"What Is that?"
"He's going to build a trap on each
side of this one nnd cut off our fish
"Good Lord! Can he do that?"
"Sure! Why not? The law gives us
000 yards both ways. As long as he
stays outside of that limit he can do
anything he wauts to."
"Then of what use Is our trap? Tbe
salmon follow definite courses close to
the shore, and If he Intercepts them
before they reach us why. then we'll
get only what he lets through."
"That's his plan." said Big George
sourly. "It's an old game, but It don't
always work. You can't tell what
salmon will do till they do It. I've
studied this point of land for five
years, and I know more about It than
anybody else except the Creator. If
the fish hug the shore, then we're up
against It. but I think they strike In
about here: that's why I chose this
site. We can't tell, though, till the run
starts. All we can do now Is see that
them people keep their distance "
The "lead" of n salmon trap con

runs out from the shore for many hun

that turns the schools of tish and leads

so built that once the fish are Inside

If Marsh, by blocking the line of prog,
ress above nnd below, had virtually
destroyed the efficiency of the new
trap, rendering the cost of Its construc
tion a total loss.
That evening when be bad seen the
night shift started Emerson decided
to walk up to Cherry's house, for he
was worried over the day's develop
ments and felt that an hour of the
girl's society might serve to clear his
Cherry's house was situated a short
distance above the cannery which serv
ed as Willis Marsh's headquarters, and
'Boyd's path necessarily took him past
his enemy's very stronghold. Finding
the tide too high to permit of passing
beneath the dock, he turned up among
the buildings, where, to his surprise, bo
encountered bis own day foreman talk
ing earnestly with a stranger.
The fisherman started guiltily.
"What are you doing here, Larsen?"
"I Just walked up after supper to
have a talk with an old mate "
"Who is he?"
"He's Mr. Marsh's foreman."
Emerson spoke out bluntly: "See
here. I don't like this. These people
have caused me a lot of troublo al
ready, and I don't want my men bang
ing around here."
"Oh. that's all right." said Larson
carelessly. "Him and me used to fish
together." And as If this were a suffi
cient explanation be turned back to bis
conversation, leaving Emerson to pro
ceed on his way.
He found Cherry at home aud, fling
Ing himself into one of her easy chairs,
relieved his mind of the day's occur
rences. "Marsh Is building those traps pure
'y out of splto. she declared Indig
nantly when he had finished. "He
doesu't need any more fish-he has
plenty of traps farther up the river."
"To be sure! It looks as If we might
have to depend upon the gill netters."
"We will know before long. If the
fish strike In where George expects
Marsh will be out a pretty penny."
"And If they don't strike In where
George expects we will be out all the
expense of building that trap."
"Exactly! I.'s a fascinating hnsl-
ness. Isn't It? It's a business In which
the unexpected Is forever happening, j
But the stakes are high, and I kuow j

continued, "have you beard the his

lie shook his head.
"Well, there was a certain shrewd

I'd like to engage In a business of this
sort, something that would require in

Something In the girl's attitude and
In her silence made him feel that his
words rang hollow and commonplace.
While they had talked an unaccus
touted excitement bad beeu mounting
In his brain, and It held him now In a
kind of delicious embarrassment. It
was as If both had been suddenly en
folded In a new nnd mysterious uu
derstaudlng without the need of
speech. He did not tell himself that
Cherry loved hi in, but be roused to a
fresh perception of her beauty and felt
himself privileged In her nearness.
It may have been tbe unusual ardor
of bis gaze that warmed ber cheeks
and brought her eyes back from the
world outside. At any rate, she turned
flashing blm a startled glance that
caused bis pulse to leap anew. Rising
silently, she went past him to the
piano. Never before had she surprised
that look In his eyes and at the real I
zatlon a wave of confusion surged over
her She strove to culm herself
through her music, which shielded
while It gave expression to her mood
and neither spoke as the evening
shadows crept In upon them. But the
girl's exaltation was short lived: tbe
thought came that Boyd's feeling was
but transitory: he was not the sort to
burn lasting Incense before more than
one shrine Nevertheless, at this mo
ment he was hers, and In the Joy of
that certainty she let the moments slip,
They heard a child crying some
where In the rear of the house and
Chakawaua's voice soothing; then In a
moment the Indian girl appeared In
the doorway, saying something about
going out with Constantlne. Cherry
acquiesced half consciously. Impatient
of the Intrusion. Boyd finally rose aud,
going to the door, saw that the sky was
deeply overcast, rendering the night as
dark as lu a far lower latitude.
"I've overstayed my welcome." he
ventured and smiled at ber answering

Agalu she felt ber heart leap. Reach
ing out to say goodby, his band slipped
down over ber arm like a caress until
her palm lay In his.
With trembling, gentle hands she
pushed him from ber.
When the black bulk of Marsh's can
nery loomed uhead of Emerson he left
the gravel beach nnd turned up among
the buildings, seeking to retrace bis
former course. As he turned the cor
ner of the first building ho nearly ran
against a man who wus standing mo
tionless against the wall. The fellow,
with a sharp exclamation, vanished
luto the gloom. Boyd lost no time In
gaining the plauk runway that led to
the dock und, finding an unglo In the
building, backed Into It und waited.
From his momentary glimpse of the
man as he made oil' lie knew that he
was tall and active-Just the sort of
persou to prove dangerous lu an en
counter. But If his suspicions were
correct there must be others close by.
nnd Boyd wondered why he had heard
lio signal. After a breathless wait of
a moment or two lie stole cautiously
out. and, selecting the darkest shad
ows, slipped from one to another till
ho was caught by the sound of voices
