THE ALTERNATIVE ROUTE

Having climbed upon the bridge, and so securect the upper ground in case of any further attack, Hughie leaned over the rails and parleyed. In his hand he held a pair of heavy binoculars, which he had taken out of a box clamped to the back of the wind-screen.
" The first man who attempts to follow me up here," he announced, when he had got his breath back, "`vill get this pair of glasses in the eye. Captain, I don't think you are a great success as an employer of labour. You haven't got the knack of conciliating your men. Can't we come to terms? Mine are very simple. I want some clothes-my own, for choice. If you haven't got them, anything quiet and unobtrusive will do. But I decline to go about in orange-and-red pyjama trousers in mid-Atlantic to please you or anybody else. For one thing they're not warm; and for another they're not usual. If you will oblige me in this matter, I am quite willing to live at peace with you. I don't see that you can really suppress me except by killing me, and that is a thing which I don't think you have either the authority or the pluck to do. Why not give me a billet in the engine-room and cry quits?"
Captain Kingdom looked up at the obstreperous mutineer on the bridge, and down at the recumbent Mr Gates on the deck, and ground his teeth Then he looked up to the bridge again.
" All right," he growled. "Come down!"
