Ralph tries hard to establish some kind of working order. He truly is respectful of most of the boys. To be fair to Ralph, he spent most of the time trying to prevent Jack from turning their island into a living hell. Most of the boys did not want to invest energy into Ralph's ideas (like shelters or signal fire). Ralph's calmness and gentle manner initially attracted the boys to him but as they descend into savagery, most respect him less and less.
