CHAPTER VI - A VISIT TO BOULOGNE

The murderer smiled gloatingly. When the Chinaman was dead he would take the formula. Decency forbade him robbing a dying man !

The night after Gerald had seen the Kentons, he was due at a dinner-party at Windsor Towers, given by Sir Horace French, the managing director of Thomson-Wentworth's. It was a man's party, and curiously representative of the great National and Industrial interests of Tyneside. There was Lord Tankerton, for instance, one of the wealthiest landowners in Northumberland and one whose interests in "Coal" were very considerable. Then there was Riddell Warner, another big coal-owner ; Sir Robert Gill, the designer of the Queen Mab ; and George Butler, the authority on submarines. Commander Finch and Gerry Dalton completed the party. Of course, it was strictly forbidden under definite codes of honour for these men to unlock the secrets of their own departments to each other ; though they were able to talk over generalities with much greater intimacy than if they had been in less exclusive circles. They had touched on a variety of things which held their mutual interest, till at last the conversation veered round to the Queen Mab.
" She will be a wonder," said Lord Tankerton with justifiable pride-for had he not taken his share in suggesting the type of heating she should have-quite unofficially of course ; but after all, he was a director of the firm.
" Yes," replied Sir Robert. " I think she'll do all we expect-if Finch's guns come up to scratch."
They all turned to the Commander.
" Oh-that will be all right," he said. " You wait till the trials, then we'll show you!"
There was a drawn look about his face that no one
