So far as they are concerned, the com

-It's walk out or get kicked out."
Such was the, statement of Captain
Tullett, chairman of the special com
mittee, of the Harbor, after meeting
the full board of directors and offi
cials cf the Inter-Island Company at
! eleven o'clock this morning. Captain
"The company stands pat, and re
fuses to budge from the position. We
expected this. We wanted to make
i sure, however, that the directors did
not think we were, have been, or
would in the future attempt to dictate
to the company whom it should dis
charge, : All we wanted was to gain
assurance ,-that the spite of the presi
dent would , not be' allowed t6 oust
good men and faithful employes from
the service of the company because of
any cohnectioh 'with our Harbon This
was refused lis. Personally, it makes
.little difference to me what stand the
harbor takes, as I am expecting to
leave here' within a few days for the
Coast, where I" am going to live. But
for the sake of the skippers them
selves I would have liked to see some
sort of guarantee given that . they
would receive fair treatment."
' Acting under instructions of the har
bor, the special committee of captains
met the officials of the company this
morning in conference. Prior to the
meeting Captain Tullett, chairman of
the committee, sent the president of
the corporation the following letter:
Gentlemen: At a meeting of Har
bor 54 held yesterday for the purpose
of considering the controversy now ex
isting between this Harbor and your
company, it was decided by unanimous
vote-to accept your invitation fcr a
conference and herewith request that
you appoint your committee and
nsme the hour for such meeting.
Harbor 54 convenes apain at 3 p. m
toiay, at which time the committee
has been instructed .to report.
Pending the result of the meetin?
none of the committee would disruss
the probable outcome, although Can
tain Tullett said thit the reports of
yesterday's had been incorrectly re
pi-rted and that the vote of the hart or
was simply one to give the public as
surance that every effort w?s beina
used by the cap'ains to brin? about
peace. "We ire not freebooters teek-

hours. All we want is the assurance
that so Ion? as we do our work we
shall be treated like humans," be said
"It's a complete back-down, and I
am ashamed of the men.'
So said Judge Humphreys this morn
ing in speaking of the action of the
Harbor yesterday in voting to hold a
conference with the Inter-Island.

is rank folly. It simplv means that j
