XXXV "DISMISS such contraptions as •teamers from your mind." Captain Proctor said.* "All the canny money is going into clippers. To own a steamer first off, you have to own a coal yard to run her, and most of the coal is still in western Pennsylvania. Break down at sea, and some monkey with a wrench is responsible for her satety, not the master And by his record, your friend Kaui is no more than a fist-and-haul Bailor. He'd find no berth in them. Nor, for the matter, would you." "Where's the clipper?" Jered asked, almost against his conscious will. "When may I see her?" - . . . "McKay's yard," Captain Proc-r tor said. "Take your friend Kaui. with you to Boston and show him the sights. Be-a pleasure after those rock islands. Sooner than not, too, Jercd, we'll fashion a way to get him home." Kaui was quiet when he and Jered rode the stage, to Boston irj the morning. But when they reached the McKay yard his constraint left him. "I didn't know," •he said, "that a ship like that .could be built." "Or me," Jered said. 1 Jered talked with Donald McKay who explained the rigging detail. Kaui listened but didn't fully hear. He watched Jered's face, rapt and intense and glowing. In his mind, Kaui thought, he's already sailing her. Jercd called to hlni and had- him meet McKay. They boarded and went down in the vessel and along her from hold to hold and frame to frame to the transom overhang. Jered wore a looK of Etrain when they led her. Then at Hanover Street he laid, "L»Vt put Into the American House and have a toddy. I wont to get •quired awaj with you," BY ROBERT CARSE They sat within the American House, the hot-buttered rum before them. Jered pushed the mug across the . pitted table. "I'm bound for New York," he said. "Tonight, aboard the packet. You, if you're still my friend, will go back to Salem." "I'm your friend," Knui said. "But, why New York?" Jered pressed his fingers against his eyesockets with a gesture of fatigue. "There's a man named Buchan I should fetch up with. He's in our trade and supposed to be there. Maybe I can find him. Then 111 get back to Salem. Meantime, take your gear off the Obis. Pack into one of those boarding houses on Derby Street. Tell Phoebe where I've gone, and not to worry." « • * THE man's full name was Ivor Buchan, a Perthshire Scot, small, ruddy and dour. Jered found him in a cheap sailor's hotel near Coenties Slip on South Street. His whale oil lamp was smirched with soot; charts, books, drawings and plans piled the table and he sat on a stool in a shabby tweed coat. "So ye're Captain Naish," he said. "Ye'd talk to me of an •irtH steamer' as ye say it But would ye sail in one, mon, or put your money In her?" • Outside in the hall a sailor and 'a harpooner argued. The harpooner, armed with his weapon, hurled it and the blade pierced the door panel and rived It In half. Buchan opened the door. He cleared the harpoon, handed it to the owner. "On with ye," he said. "Ye're oot of practice." Jered could only stand and laugh at him. But Buchan was serious. "Steamers," he said, "I build 'em. I Mil 'em. Is that why ye're here?" "I reckon'It 1»." "Well, I've one In completion nt the Novelty Iron Works. Come, Ukt a took »t her. Then p~ WE'VE GOT IT! Over 33,000 different items in stock! H U BBAR D HARDWARE haps between us we can make ense." The steamer when he first saw ler made him want to laugh. But vor Buchan wasn't a man who worked for comic purpose. She vas a strange-looking craft in omparison, with the magnificent lipper in McKay's yard in Boson, yet as Buchan described her here was a great amount to recommend the design, her propul- ion and her meaning as a com- )etitor to any ship that was wind-driven. SHE was of wooden construc- ion and 180 feet from, the bnlg- ng bow to the stern that more ban faintly resembled the side of a barn. Her rounded housing midships contained the double paddle-wheels and she was 36 eet, four inches in the beam and still brig-rigged for auxiliary . The power plant was in Suchan's language a "side-lever" engine with a 70-inch cylinder by eight-feet .stroke operated mder a steam pressure of 14 )ounds to the square inch. Her maximum loaded draft would be 12 feet, 10 inches and she would safely carry in the proximity of 3000 tons cargo. Jered and the Scot went back to Buchan's hotel and had a dinner of Flushing oysters and Long sland venison. Buchan had been ong in Nova Scotia, he told Jered. He had worked for Samuel Cunard, and then in Glasgow 'or Burns in his line of coastal steamers and for Maclver in Liverpool in his. "Now," he said, 'between them with Cunard and backed by the British government, they're aboot to start a line of steamers to this coast carryin' the mail. A verra gude contract. I'd like to have it. That ship of mine I built on spec' and I'm near broke. There's the pile of trade I can pick up in the West Indies, but I must pay off the builders and be able to pay a crew." "I'm In position," Jered said, 'to line you up with a right smart master. The lad sailed as my second mate in » whaler. He's a Pacific Islander, and a sailor-born." PERSISTENT PRACTICE In 15th century France, the best bowman of each parish was designated for the Icing's francs-archers, and was obligated to practice shooting every Sunday, according to the Encyclopedia Britannica.
