more to be desired, ami certain it is '

No captain shipped a crew from Irvington un

I the kings, who blandly offered to find him a new
I crew at $30 the man. He roared again to the
British consul, to his shipping agents, to the po
lice, who were sympathetic but helpless. Nobody
could be found to even hint that the kings had
any hand in the affair and the shipping commis
sioner's records were clear. He had shipped no
deserters that he knew of.
But Captain Brown swore that If he couldn't
get back his men, or get the dogs of justice to
even bark at the kings, he at least would pay
them no blood money for a new crew. So he
went to another port and brought a new crew to
Irvington by steamer. His bark was hauled out
Into the stream and her crew kept close in her
forecastle. That night she was boarded by
masked men, who swept her new crew over the
bows into the stream. Gossip had it that some
of them were drowned. Captain Brown gave up
and paid the Shencan boys $75 instead of ?30
each for a crew, and put to sea " a hurry

but if he were not too drunk to say he was an
able seaman and to sign his name to the ship's
articles, that settled it. He would probably be an
able seaman or a dead greenhorn before his ship
This official insistence on the letter of the law
sometimes caused the kings to do strange things.
Toward the end of the season they were at times
hard pushed for one or two men to fill out a
crew. Then did all men In sailortown not in the
kings' special favor hunt cover and stay hid un
til the List ship was out of sight beyond the oar.
For Jack and Pete wore no respecters of persons.
All men looked alike to them, and they sent to
sea more than one who held himself too acute to
be trapped into an unwilling voyage. Well-educated,
well-dressed and companionable, the kings
mixed with the best and worst that drifted into
their realms, and once in their clutches no man
escaped from thera except by the open sea.

against the advice of the upper town, to tee tho
sights. He was wise to the world and had a
year's thirst and pay with him. He met the kings,
who were glad to see him. Just one more man
was needeti for the square-rigger flood Hope, then
lying in the stream waiting for a crew, with her
captain. Black, swearing at Jack and Pete for
delaying him. The kings attended to Hunter's
thirst and were friendly, even confidential. No
secret was made of their trade. They told him
stories of shanghaied sallormen and of crews they
had stolen from one ship for another. He was
much interested. Jack took him up to the ship
ping commissioner's to see the crew of the Good
Hope shipped. He was even asked to and did
tlgn his name once or twice "as a witness." A
friend from the upper town risked a broken head
to warn him. But the Sherman boys were also
friends at least three hours old and, anyhow,
he could take care of himself.
At last he caught Pete in an attempt to drug
his whisky and left the kings, with a laughing
comment on sailortown ways. Well outside the
deadline he stopped In a quiet saloon. It was
late and be and the lonesome bartender had a
nightcap together. When he came alive next
morning he was at sea in the Good Hope and a
beefy English mate was kicking him in the ribs.
Of the months that followed Hunter never
told much. He learned sailors' work; he had to.
He picked up a scar or two from the English
mate's brass knuckles. Also he acquired a deep
desire to kill the kings of sailortown. Captain
Black and the mate.
At last he found himself In the consul's office
at Dunkirk. France, dressed in the clothes he had
on when he met the Sherman boys. For a won
der, they had sent them aboard with him. He
was in United States territory again, and. first
off. he would square yards with Captain Black.
But the consular agent was a Frenchman who
would neither speak English nor understand
Hunter's French unless he wanted to. Captain
Black lolled in an office chair and grinned while
Hunter told his troubles. When he had finished,
without a word of comment the consular agent
spread out two papers, the ship's articles and an
"advance note." "Ees thees votre nom?" he
asked It was He remembered his signing "aa
a witness and was dumb. After th
"advance note" and a preposterous

from his wages, they handed him

he didn't know that.

That the kings so continually escaped punish

had a chance to tell their stories until they were

ports could not libel ships or detain captains on
their unsupported word. The ships' papers were
always straight, a. r.cy rate on the face of them.
The most that could be dono was to report the
case ami there it ended. The Sherman boys on
the other side of the earth never heard even an
echo of It. The witnesses against them were scat
