CHAPTER IV - THE COMMANDER'S SECRET

What, he wondered, did this ominous message mean -and who was the sender of it ? No one in the world knew what had happened that terrible night of June, 1902-at least, he had always believed so. No ! This was just a coincidence. But it served its purpose. He would see this strange Comte ; and if he had anything to say-well, let him say it.
" Show him along, Panton," he said, turning back to his view at the window; " but give me five minutes, first."
How he remembered that night ! Just about ten years ago, he had gone over to Germany to learn the language. There had been talks of war for some years now, and the Admiralty knew that it was just a question of time before the Emperor's dislike of England got the upper hand of him, and drove him to open antagonism. So young men like Finch were sent over there to learn the tongue, so as to be able to act as interpreters when the " great day " came. But, unknown even to his pals, young Finch had been entrusted with an additional task. The all-important Kiel Canal was becoming something more tangible than just talk. Plans were already well advanced, and in great secrecy certain of the work was said to be already in hand. The British Admiralty fully realised the importance of this link between the Baltic with the North Sea ; and when these rumours reached them, they decided to make sure.
Thus a young naval officer, just over the threshold of his career, was given certain instructions. It speaks well of him that young Finch accomplished the jobbut-he did not do it easily. One man had stood between him and success. Time after time in sheer desperation he fought with himself : If it came to the point, could he kill this man ? Oh yes ! He realised that in certain circumstances it might mean even that.
