CHAPTER VI - The Move Down the Lake

crown. But we need not believe all that is said, especially by a man's enemies.
During the subsequent revolutions, Orilla, which had begun to be a winter paradise for the Americans, lapsed back into barbarism and broken brickwork. In I9zI a feeble new start had been made.
The place belonged to a German-Mexican family, who also owned the adjacent hacienda. They acquired the property from the American Hotel Company, who had undertaken to develop the lake-shore, and who had gone bankrupt during the various revolutions.
The German-Mexican owners were not popular with the natives. An angel from heaven would not have been popular, these years, if he had been known as the owner of property. However, in 1921 the hotel was very modestly opened again, with an American manager.
Towards the end of the year, Jose, son of the GermanMexican owner, came to stay with his wife and children in the hotel, in the new wing. Jose was a bit of a fool, as most foreigners are, after the first generation in Mexico. Having business to settle, he went into Guadalajara to the bank and returned with a thousand gold pesos in a bag, keeping the matter, as he thought, a dead secret.
Everyone had just gone to bed, on a brilliant moonlight night in winter, when two men appeared in the yard calling for Jose: they had to speak to him. Jose, suspecting nothing, left his wife and two children, and went down. In a moment he called for the American manager. The manager, thinking it was some bargaining to be done, also came down. As he came out of the door, two men seized him by the arms, and said: `Don't make a noise!'
`What's amiss?' said Bell, who had built up Orilla, and had been twenty years on the lake.
Then he noticed that two other men had hold of Jose. `Come,' they said.
There were five Mexicans - Indians, or half-Indians - and the two captives. They went, the captives in slippers and shirtsleeves, to the little office away at the end of the other part of the hotel, which had been the old ranch-house.
`What do you want?' asked Bell.
