THE ALTERNATIVE ROUTE

(Keep still, Mr Gates!) As I'm here, I've no particular objection to working my passage, always reserving to myself the right to make things hot for your employer when I get ashore. I'll work as an A.B. or a deck-hand if you like, though personally I would rather do something in the engine-room. I'm pretty well qualified in that direction. But I must be decently treated, and there must be no more sand-bagging or knockabout variety business. Is it a deal?"
Captain Kingdom surveyed the sinewy stowaway before him thoughtfully. He saw that until Hughie gave up the capstan-bar Mr Gates would have little chance of enforcing discipline. He must temporise.
"° I can give you a job in the engine-room," he said, in what he imagined was a more conciliatory tone. "Second engineer's down with something this morning. You can take his watch. Drop that capstan-bar of yours, and go and see Mr Angus, the chief."
'"That should suit me," replied Hughie. "But as a guaranteee of good faith, and to avoid disappointing the assembled company, I'm quite willing to stand up and have a turn with Mr Gates here, or that gentleman over by the funnelstay, or any one else you may appoint. But I should prefer Mr Gates," he added, almost affectionately. "I'm not in first-class form at present, as my head has got a dint in it behind ; but I'll
do my best. Are you game, Mr Gates?"
