He studied Captain Proctor. There was the stronger of the two, he realized once more. The captain sat warming his brandy glass between his hands. Just the small, dim anchor tattoo at the base of his right thumb showed him as a sailor. The quality of the clothing, the beaked and veinous nose, the plump cheeks, even the comfortably assured posture in the wing- Iback chair'reminded Jered of the ipatrician merchants with whom ihe had done business in France, (Russia, China, England. The captain belonged to a class; he mustered among the wealthy of the world. But the question was still wc-th while. "Is that why," he asked Captain Proctor, "that you were so blasted rude to Kaui at your own dinner table?" "Yes," Captain Proctor said. He sipped from the brandy. His cheroot ash toppled gracefully onto the hearth. "Let me remind you the my servants have «y«s and ears. a place where very little is hidden. Make a warm welcome for y,our yellow- skin friend and within the week your father and me would be told to give up our places in East India Hall. To say nothing ol what might happen to the Southern trade." "Bilge," Jered said. The r«ge had broken through -Ml control. "The color of a man'i skin can t mean that much." "Jcrcd, lad," his father said, openly pleading. "Evtn In the great days of the Whampoa tr«d« we had no Chinese here 11 guests Nor did they sail in our ships. We kept aside from them.' "All for profit, hey?" _ "Most correct indeed." Captain Proctor laughed. "Now if your friend could bring us some trade, if there was copra at valm BY ROBERT CARSE hi his islands, or a quantity ol pearl, the thing would change. :'d be happy to outfit him in a schooner, get him to blazes off .his coast." "You must reckon him for a trouble-maker. I don't doubt that the East India Hall lot have lim marked down as such." "Not Kaui, no," his father said. 'But you. Slack off the temper somewhat. Hearken to what I tell you. It ain't us you fight in the matter. We couldn't take another course even if we was to have a mind to. Stand up with you the way you (eel and we'd be ruined. There's just no sense to buck the bigwigs here and up and down the coast." Jered cursed; but at his own sense of futility. He, knew, rage still burning around the recognition, that what his father said was true. The wealth that owned American shipping was in the lands of the traders and merchants and owners of vast properties. Those were the men who had bitterly opposed Jefferson to the last. They had their inflexible tabus just as in the far islands Kaui's people had theirs. THERE was Jewel Owen who with her father on a European voyage in his brig had met, fallen in love with and married » young Parisian. A handsome fellow, »s Jered remembered him, and talented, « portrait painter by profession and a Hugenot whose folks had survived the persecutions. In Silem, though, he wai at) outcast; nobody desired to tit for • portrait by him, his paintings went unsold, and he gave up and dltapptired, wit supposed to have drifted westward towird the Mississippi. Six monthi after he'd lift Jew* hanged herself In the garret o htr famlljr'i home on Waihlniton Square. •Elkins Colebaw had tried going WE'VE GOT IT! Over 33,000 different items in stock! H U B B A R D HARDWARE tgainst the Salem current, too. He had been a widower, then ome'to care for the housekeeper who had tended him and his children. The trouble there was that he was supposed to have a dash of Pequot tribe blood on her mother's side. Elkins married icr anyhow. But when he insured his ships for the next voyages he had to pay a tremendous rate. Cargo went to other ships nstead of his; captains quit him, and mates. He sold out before he was an absolute bankrupt. * * * THERE were others, more than ic needed to recall now, Jered hought. He had the lesson well n mind: If he had enough dol- ars, he might fight and win. Not hat he was whipped. But, lack- ng the money, he was forced to emporize with these men, flnd some way,to combat them that up to here had escaped him. I .was wrong." he said. "I should ha' been able to Bgure it." "Pour the lad another brandy," Captain Proctor told Phillip Naish. "Now let's talk ship. Jerry, we've been holding off telling you that we have a clipper laid down on the ways in Boston. A Donald McKay design and ready to take to sea. We fancy you to go master of her." Jered placed his glass on the mantelpiece after his father had refilled it. A fine moisture was n the cracks of the palms of his hands. His mouth had a wry, dry taste, the rage had left him nervous and confused. He felt himself suddenly at a distinct disadvantage. This pair handled him nicely, with only a few rough spots along the way. Sure as sure, Phoebe would tell him that he'd aeen hornswoggled, and he hadn't begun to come upon an answer for Kaui. "Gentlemen," he said, "it's my second night in port in well nigh a year and a half. Phoebe and my (rlend are waiting for me. Last time in, you gave me a night ashore. I'd' like a spell so's 1 can think. But, how about thest steamers? We passed one off th« Cape May. Isnt there profit in them, and a berth, maybe, lor • fella like Kaui?"
