CHAPTER XXVIII - THE PLANS AGAIN

What, then, was that dreadful blow-and where would it fall ?
Royston was amazed at the conclusion his thinking had brought him-it gave him a terrible shock.
He knew that H.Q. were following things up, and that soon he would be getting a dispatch giving him further information. What if he had really fallen on the right scent at last ! And what would be the information he was expecting so eagerly ?
When he got back to Eldon Square to collect this dispatch, he found another shock awaiting him.

It was quite late when Royston got back to Newcastle, and in the meantime things were beginning to happen at the derelict building in Bottle Bank.
Not that anyone would have noticed it, of course ; for not only was the night very dark and wet and thundery, but there was not a sound to attract attention. All this silence was in accordance with planthe meeting which was to take place this very night was of a private nature. Most of the men who had recently occupied the place had already dispersed to the strategic points to which the Master had ordered them at the last meeting. Only the half-wit young Russian sailor remained. He had stayed in to-night because he had been given a job to do. Someone strange was coming to see the Master, and the trapdoor leading to the river had to be guarded, and the bolt which held it made secure, lest an accident should happen to this important visitor.
There was thus need for safety and secrecy, and they dared not leave the door unguarded in case of eavesdroppers. The poor crazy sailor was really a pitiful sight to look at. Indeed, frequently in the past he won sympathy from many of these hard roundheaded men who had been passing this way lately
