The bridge seemed deserted. He could not see the helm, for that was above him. But he could see the fo’c’s’le head across the darkness of the well deck. Several men were there, indistinguishable in t...he gloom.
    Clark rummaged about the cabin until he found a pair of field glasses on the captain’s desk. Through these he studied the men in the bow.
    There were five of them, all well dressed, three of them in evening clothes. They were not talking, just staring ahead into the black night, turning occasionally to glance aft, an unmistakable attitude of waiting about them. One of them Clark saw in profile. It was the same face he had seen outside his port during the call from the bridge!
    But why were these passengers on the fo’c’s’le head? Were they afraid something might happen to the ship?
    One of the men, chunky and fat, Clark knew. He was Harrington, head of a sugar central in Cuba.
