THE ALTERNATIVE ROUTE

",It's to be no deal, then?" said Hughie composedly. 'Very well. The next question is, if I am coming with you, how am I going to be treated? Cabin or steer-"
" I'll show you," roared the incensed skipper. "Knock him silly, Mr Gates 1"
Mr Gates came on with a rush. But Hughie, who all this time had been taking his bearings, leapt back lightly in his bare feet and snatched a capstan-bar from the rack behind him.
" Keep your distance for a moment, Mr Gates," he commanded, "if you don't want your head cracked. I haven't finished interviewing this captain of yours yet. Happy to oblige you later, for any period you care to specify."
" ' Nother Percy 1" commented Mr Dingle dejectedly, expectorating over the side. He was a plain man, was Mr Dingle, and loved straight hitting and words of one syllable.
Mr Gates paused, and Hughie, leaning back against the bulwarks and toying with the capstanbar, continued to address the fulminating mariner on the bridge.
" Now, captain, I'm going to be brief with you - brief and business - like. You've been paid by Kinahan to Shanghai me and take me for a long sea-voyage. Very good. I'm not kicking. Iwanted to get to Europe anyhow, and I rather like long sea-voyages, especially before the mast. In fact, I'd rather sail before the mast on board this ship than in the cuddy.
