THE MAN THEY COULDN'T ARREST

A moment later he was stepping on all his brakes. The cab skidded to a sudden standstill, and he was off the seat and round to the door in a single jump. He pulled the door open and stared inside, his mouth opening and shutting like a gaffed fish. His bewilderment was such that he couldn't even speak. There was his fare's overcoat, in a floppy heap on the floor of the cab, but of the fare himself, that man who was in such a desperate hurry, there was not a sign.
" Well-damn me I" he gasped, and looked hurriedly at his pound note to see if it was genuine.
" What's up ?" It wasn't a question. It was a command, a harsh, snapped-off order that hit his ears from somewhere behind his elbow. He jerked round and stared at his interlocutor.
" ' E's gorn i" said the helpless driver.
" Who has?"
" Gawd knows ; but ' e's gorn. ' E ain't in the cab !" That was the greatest and most outstanding fact in the whole of the driver's universe. His fare had vanished. The fact appalled him. " And after me chancin' me licence to get him out here quick i" he protested to the world at large.
The officer climbed into the cab and took possession of the coat. !
" ' Ere-what's the game?" demanded the driver aggressively.
" You step gently, my son-or you'll be invited into the witness-box !" said the voice of authority.
