CHAPTER XIV Continued.
"Dy tho tall o' the Great Sncred
null," chattered Scraggs. "Gib's right."
McGuffoy wns plainly disappointed.
"I hadn't thought o' that nt nil Oil). I
been chcrlshln' the thought o' lnmmln'
the whey ont'n that tnato, hut If you
cny so I'll give up the ldco. But If

ters Is Invltln' death, what In blue
blazes're we goln' to do with her?"
Mr. Olhncy smiled nn arch, cunning
mile. "We'll give her to that mur
dcrln' mate, free gratis."
Captain Scruggs hounded out of bin
chair, struck the hot deck with his
bare feet, cursed, and hopped back
Into the chair again, McQuflfoy stared
Incredulously. "Gib, my dear boy,"
quavered Scruggs, "say that agin."
"Vcs," continued tho commodore
placidly, "we'll Just get shot o' her
pcaccablo like by glvln' her to thin
mntc. Don't forget, Scraggsy, old tar
pot, that tills mate's been pnssln' him
nclf off for you In Honolulu, an' if
there's over an Investigation, the trail
leads to tho Magglo II. This mate's
admitted being Captain Scrnggs, an' If
he's found with the schooner In his
possession It'll tnke a heap o' evidence
for him to prove that he ain't Captain
Scrnggs. We'll Just keep this here mntc
In tlie brig while we're disposing of
our black coral, pearl, shell nnd copra
in Honolulu, air then, when wove
denned up, nn' got our passages
booked for San Francisco "
"But who says we're goln' back to
San Francisco?" cut In McCluffey.
"Why, where else would men with
money In their pockets bend for, you
olt-snnkcd pleco of Ignorance? Ain't
you had enough adventure to do you n
spell?" 'demanded Captain Scrnggs.
"Me an' Gib's for goln' back to San
Frnnclsco, so shut up. If you, got any
objection, you're outvoted two to one
In the syndlcnte."
McGuffcy subsided, growling, nnd
Mr. GIbncy continued :
"When we're ready to lenve Hono
lulu, we'll bring this mate on deck,
make him n kind Christian talk an'
give him the Mngglc II with the com
pliments o' tho syndicate. He'll think
our suffcrln's on thnt island has
touched us with religion an' he'll be so
tickled he'll keep his mouth shut.
Then, with all three of us safe nn' out
o' tho mess, an' the evidence off our
hands, we'll clear out for Gawd's coun
try an' look around for some sort of a
The commodore sighed. "Sho's n
lovo of a boat an It breaks my heart
to give up the only command I've ever
bad, but the fact Is, Mac, her posses
sion by us Is dangerous, an' we don't
need her, an' wo can't sell her because
her record's got blurs on It. We can't
' convey n clean nn satisfactory title.
Anyhow, she didn't cost us n cent an'
there nln't no real financial loss If we
give her to this mate. Ilo'd bo glad to
get her If she had yellow Jack aboard,
an If he's caught with her he'll have
to do the cxp'alnln'. When you're
caught with the goods In your posses
sion. Mnc, It makes the cxplnlnln' nil
the harder. Besides, we're three to
one, an If It comes to n show-down
later we can outswear the mntc."
Captain Scraggs picked bis snogglo
teeth with the little blnilo of his Jack
knife and cogitated a minute.
"WcIJ," he announced presently, "far
bo It from me to fly In the fuce o' a
felon's denth. I've made n heap o'
money, lbllerln' Gib's advice, nn' bust
my bob-stay If I don't stay put on this.
Gib, It's your load."
"Well, I'll follow suit. Gib's got nil
the trumps," ncqulesced the engineer.
"Wo got plenty o' dough nn' no board
bills cotnln' duo, so we'll loaf along
shore until Gib digs up Bomethln'
"now nbout Nells?" queried Captain
Scraggs. "Do wo continue to let that
cx-tlcckhnnd In on our fortunes?"
"If Nells Hnlvorsen bad asked you
that question when he come to rescue
you the day you lay n-dyln o' thirst
on that desert Island, wouldn't you
have said yos?"
"Then don't ask no questions that's
unworthy of you," said Mr. Glbney se
verely. "I don't wnnt to Beo none o'
them green-pen trade ethics croppln'
up In you, Scraggsy. If It wasn't for
that Swede tlie scn-gulls'd be plckln'
our bones now. Nells Hnrvorsen is In
cluded In this syndicate for good."
"Amen." This from tho honest Mc
Guffcy, "Mcetln's adjourned," said Captain
Under the direction ot the crafty
commodore, the valuable cargo of the
Maggie n watu disposed of In Hono
lulu. Daring the period while the
schooner lay at the dock discharging,
Captain Scraggs and McGuffey pra
outly remained In the cabin with the
:rfldlouB mate, In order that, ahonld
(i lave'stlgatlon be undertaken later
i the Treasury department, no mas
might swear that the rcnl Phlnens
Scraggs, filibuster, had been In Hono
lulu on a certain date. The Kanaka
crew of the schooner Mr. GIbncy man
aged to ship with un old shipmaster
friend bound for Now Guinea, so their
testimony was out of the way for a
while, nt least.
When tho Magglo II was finally dis
charged and tho proceeds of her rich
cargo nestled, In crisp bills of largu
denomination, In a money belt under
Mr. Glbncy's nrmplts nnd next his run
cnlly skin, ho purchnsed tickets under
nssumed nnincs for himself, Scraggs,
McGufTcy and Hnlvorsen on the liner
Hllonlnn, due to sail at noon next day.
These details attended to, tho Mug
gle II backed away from tho dock un
der her own power nnd cast anchor off
the quarnntlhc stntlon. The mate was
then brought on deck und made to
confront the syndicate.
"It nppcnrs, my mnn," tho commo
dore began, "that you was too anxious
to horn In on the proilts o' this expe
dition, so In a moment o' human weak
ness you did your employers nn evil
deed. Wc had It nil flggcrcd out to
feed you to the sharks on tho way
home, becnuso dead men tell no tales,
but our suffcrln's on that Island has
caused us nil to look with n milder
eye on niero humnn shortcoming. The
Oood Book says: 'Forgive us our tres
passes as we forgive those what tres
pass agln us,' an' I ain't ashamed to
admit that you owe your wicked life
to the fact that Scraggsy's got religion
an' McGuffey ain't much better. But
wo got nil the money we need an'
we're goln' to Europe to enjoy It, so
before wo go we're goln' to pass sen
tence upon you. It Is the verdict o'
the court that we presejit you with the
power schooner Magglo II free gratis,
an' that yoit accept the same in the
snme friendly spcrrlt In whlch.lt Is
tendered. Hnvln' a schooner o your
own from now on, you won't be
tempted to steal ono an' commit whole
sale murder n-dnln' It. You're forgiven,
man. Take- tho Magglo II with our
blessln', organize n comp'ny, nn' go
back to Kandnvu an' make some money
for yourself. Scraggsy, ore you n-wll-lln'
to provo thnt you've given this
crrln' mntc complete forgiveness by
shnktn' hnnds with him?"
"I forgive him freely," said Captain
Scrnggs, "an' here's my fin on It."
The unfortunate mate hung his
head. He was much moved.
"You don't menu It, sir, do you?" he
"I hope I may never see the back o'
my neck If I don't," replied the skip
per. "Surest thing you know, brother,"
shouted Mr. McGuffey and swatted the
deluded mote between tho shoulders.
The Unfortunate Mate Hung His
Head. He Was Much Moved.
"Take her with our compliments. You
wob n good brnvo mnto until you went
wrong. I nln't forgot how you
sprayed the hillsides with lend tho day
Gib an' Scraggsy wns took by them
cannibals. No, slr-ce 1 I nln't holding

"Thanks," tho mate mumbled. "I
ain't dcsorvln' o' this nohow," nnd ho
commenced to snivel a llttlo.
Mr. GIbncy forgot that ho was play
ing a hypocrite's part, and his gener
ous nature ovcrcamo him.
"Dog nay oats," ho blustered, "what's
the use glvln him the vessel If we
don't give htm some spondulicks to
outfit her with grub an' supplies? Poor
devil I I bet ho ain't got a cent to
bless himself with. Scraggsy, old tnr
pot, If wo'ro goln' to turn over a new
lenf nn' bo Christians, let's salt under
a full cloud o' canvns."
"By Neptune, that's bo, Gib. This
feller did us an awful dirty trick, but
uf the sumo time there ain't a cowurd
ly bono In bis hull carcass. I nln't
forgot how he stood to tho guns thnt
day off the Coronados when wo was
attacked by tho Mexicans."
"Stake the feller, Gib," advised Mc
Guffcy, and wiped nwoy a vagrant
tear. Ho was quite overcome at his
own generosity nnd the manner In
which It had touched the hard heart
of the Iniquitous mate.
.Mr. Glbney laid live one-hundred-dollar
bills In the mate's palm.
"Good-by," he said gently, "an' see
If you can't be as much of a man nn'
as good a sport hereafter ns them
you've wronged an' who's forgive you
fully and freely."
One by one the three freebooters of
the green-pen trade pumped the
stricken mute's bund, tossed him n
scrnp of ndvlce, nnd went overside In
to the Rinnll bout which was to tnko
thorn ashore. It was u solemn parting
nnd Mr. Glbney and McGuffey wore
The next day, as the Hllonlnn
steamed out of the hnrbor, bearing tint
syndicate back to San Fin,ls'co, they
looked across at thn little Maggie II
for tho last time, und observed that
the mate was on deck, superintending
threo Kanaka sailors who were hoist
ing supplies aboard from a bumboat.
Commodore Glbney bade his first
command a misty farewell.
"Good-by, little ship," ho yelled ond
waved his hnnd. "Gawd! You was
u witch In n light wind."
Seven days after leaving Honolulu,
the Illlonlau steamed Into San Frnn
clsco bay. The syndicate could not
wait until she had tied up at her dock,
and the uilnutn tho steamer had passed
quarantine Mr. Glbney hnlJed a pass
ing launch. Bng and baggage the
happy quartctle descended to the
launch and landed nt Melggs whnrf.
Mr. Glbney stepped Into the whnrtln-
gor's olllco and requested permission
to use the telephone.
"Whnt'H up, Gib?" demanded Cap
"I want to 'phono for n nutomobllc

With the assistance ot the whnrlln
gor an automobile was summoned, and
In duo course the members of the syn
dicate found themselves ensconced In
a fashionable suite In Sun Francisco's
most fashionable hotel. Mr. Glbney
stored the syndicate's pearls In the ho
tel safe, deposited an emergency roll
with the hotel clerk, nnd banked the
balance of the company funds In tho
mimes of all four; after which the syn
dicate gave Itself up to n period of
At the end of n week of riot nnd
revelry Mr. Glbney revived sufficiently
to muster all hnnds nnd lead them to
a Turkish bath. Two days In the bnth
restored them wonderfully, nnd when
the worthy commodore cvcntunlly got
them .hack to the hotel he announced
that henceforth the lid was on nnd
on tight. Captain Scraggs, who was
hard to manage In his cups nnd the
most prodigal of prodigals with steam
up to a certain pressure, demurred at
"No moro sky-Inrkln', Scraggsy, you
old cut-up," Mr. Glbney ordered. "Wc

teers to furnish n mouey-mnkln' Idee
for the syndlcnte."
Nells Hnlvorsen shook his sorrel
head. Ilo had no Ideas. B. McGuffey,
Esquire, shook his head also. Captain
Scraggs wanted to sing.
"I see It's up to me to suggest some
thin'." Mr. Glbney smiled benignly, ns
If n money-making Idea was tho easiest
thing on earth to produce. "The last
thing I remember before wo went to
thnt Turkish bath was us four vlsltin'
u fortune teller nn' bavin' our fortunes
told, pnst, present nn' future, for a
dollar a throw. Anybody here remem
ber what his fortune was?"
It nppeared that no ono remembered,
not even Mr. Glbney. He thereforo

as u negro, seconded tho motion heart

"REPORTS PASSING DERELICT
"The steam schooner Arethusa,
Grays Harbor to Oakland Long whnrf,
reports pnsslng n derelict schooner
twenty miles off Point Reyes at six
o'clock Inst night. The derelict was
down by tho head, and her rail Just
showed above the wutcr. It wns Im
possible to lenrn her Identity.
"The presence of this derelict In
tho steamer lanes to North Pacific
ports Is a distinct mennco to naviga
tion, and It Is probable that a revenue
cutter will bo dispatched today to
search for tho derelict and either tow
her Into port or destroy her."
"Gentlemen o' the syndlcute, them's
the only two items In the shlppln'
pngu that looks likely. Tho question
is, In which lies .our fortune?"
Nells Hnlvorsen spoke up, giving It
as his opinion thnt tho fortune-telling
lndy probaldy knew her business und
that their fortune really lay at sen.
The derelict wns nt sen. How else,
then, could tho prophecy bo Inter
preted? "Well, this stenmer Victor Isn't ex
nctly trnvellng overlnnd," McGuffey
suggested. Ho had a secret hankering
to mess nround somo real' engines
again, nnd gnvo It ns his opinion thnt
fortune was moro likely to lurk in n
solid stern-wheel stenmer with good
engines nnd boilers than In n bnttered
hulk at sea. Captain Scraggs agreed
with him iposf heartily nnd n tlo voto
reunited, Mr. Glbney Inclining townrd
"Whnt'ro wo goln' to do nbout It,
Gib?" Captain Scraggs demanded,
"When In doubt, Scraggsy, old tar
pot, nlwnys play trumps. In order to
mnko no mistake, right after break
fast you nn' McGuffoy go down to
Jackson street wharf nn' Interview
this man Coakley nbout his stenmer

enough to know a good hull when yon

better dissolve the syndicate. As for

Vttmt an' charter a tug an' chase oat
after that there derelict before the
revenue cutter gets her nn' blows her
out o' the path o' commerce with a
stick o' dynamite."
Forthwith Mr. Glbney and Nells,
after snatching a hasty breakfast, de
parted for tho waterfront, where they
chartered a tug for three days and
put to sen. At nbout ten o'clock Cap
tnln Scrnggs nnd McGuffey strolled
leisurely down to .Tnckson street whnrf
to Inspect the Victor. By noon they
hnd completed a most satisfactory In
spection of the steamer's hull and
boilers, and bought her In for seven
thousand dollars. Captain Scruggs
was delighted. Ho said sho was worth
ten thousand. Already he had de
cided that heavy and iolltabJe
freights awaited the syndicate along
the Sacramento river, where tho farm
ers and orchardlsts had been for
years the victims of n monopoly nnd
n gentlemen's agreement between tho
two steamboat lines that plied be
tween Sacramento, Stockton nnd Snn
On the afternoon of the third dny
Mr. Glbney and Nells Hnlvorsen re
turned from sea. They were unutter
ably weary nnd hollow-eyed for lnck
"Well, I suppose you two suckers
found thnt derelict," chnllcnged Mc
Guffey. "Yep. Found her nn' got n line
nbonrd nn' towed her in, an' it wns
a tough Job. She's lnyln' over on the
Berkeley tide lints, on' ut lowtldo to

buyln' a pig In n poke that wny. I
don'-t believe In coin' In blind. Me
nn' Mnc's bought a real ship. We
own the Victor."
"I'm dead on my feet," growled the
commodore, nnd Jumping Into bed he
refused to discuss the mnttor further
nnd wns sound asleep In n Jiffy.
Mr. Glbney wns up bright and early
and aroused the syndlcnte to nctlon.
The tide would be nt Its lowest ebb
nt nine thirty-one und the commodore
figured thnt bis fortune would be ly
ing well exposed on tho Berkeley tide
flats. He engaged n diver nnd u small
gasoline launch, nnd nfter nn early
breakfast in a chophouse on the Em
borcadero they started for the wreck.
They were within half n mile of It,
bending right Into the eye of the wind,
when Cnptnln Scruggs nnd McGuffey
stood erect In the luunch simultaneous
ly and snIIYed like a pair of well,
"Dcnd whnle," suggested McGuffey.
"I hope it nln't Gib's fortune," re
plied Scrnggs drily.
"Shut up," bellowed Mr. GIbncy. He
was snlfllng himself by this time, for
as the launch swiftly approached the
derelict the unpleasant odor became
"Betcher that schooner was In col
Hslon with a steamer," Captain
Scrnggs announced. "She wns cut
down right through the fo'cnstle with
tho watch below sound asleep, an'
this here fragrance appeals to mc as
n sure sign of a Job for the coroner."
Mr. Glbncy's eyes flashed, but he
made no reply. They had rounded the
schooner's stern now, nnd her name
"Schooner Kndlok, Seattle," read
Scraggs. "Little old three sticker a
thousand years old an' cut clear
through Just abaft the foremast. Mc
Guffey, you don't s'pose this hero's a
pirate craft nn' Just bulgln' with gold."
"Sure," retorted the engineer with
a slow wink, "tainted wealth."
Mr. Glbney could stnnd their hack

he bnwled out nngrlly. "I got n hunch
I picked up a lemon, but I'm n-wlllln'
