Tulliver. “But you mustn’t put a spoke i’ the wheel

I started for the waterfront, asking my way every block or two. Near the East River I met a policeman - a big, husky, good-hearted Irishman.

'Everything,'I said. 'They ve just given me a job on the New York Tribune,'I added proudly.

He took me to a dozen or more of the dock masters.
