CHAPTER XXX - FLIGHT

" Who says there is going to be a war with Germany ? Sir Edmund Wray wouldn't have it. And if we are going to war, what on earth will it be all about?"
" Oh, they'll find a way all right," said Brewer. " Look how this murder of the Archduke of Austria is causing war with Serbia and Austria."
" Rubbish," said Royston, who thought things had gone far enough. But it made no difference. They both knew that trouble was in the air and something was bound to happen.
" Well, that's all fixed," cried the would-be airman, rushing in at that moment. "There's a train at eleven-forty-five which I can catch. They will be ready with a plane and have plenty of oil and petrol ready. They are wiring to one of our secret stations on the banks of the Obra Canal, for refilling to be provided for. Everything will be ready! "
" Well," said Royston, looking admiringly at his friend, " I wish you the best of luck."
" Thanks," cried the other. " I'm afraid there'll be a fearful row at having to put off this enquiry into poor Gerry Dalton's death. But we cannot give them any details yet. Can you get it postponed? They will be quite satisfied if you say we think we are on the track of the murderer."
Royston hesitated. He had not had time to dwell on the horrible affair.
" Yes," he said at last. " I will fix it. Now I've been thinking one or two things over. You had better spare an hour out of this time of yours, however precious it is-and go yourself and see the Chief. Tell him everything-especially the latest developments. Tell him why I am staying at this end, and leave hint to do the rest. After all-we have our work cut out here, and he will know how to handle the Foreign Minister and the War office."
And thus it happened this day in mid-July, 1914,
