The ship passed them by because they did not see a signal fire. Jack and his hunters had not tended it. Ralph is livid at Jack. This is a real turning point in the story. Jack is able to use his powers of manipulation to turn the tables on Ralph.

The signal fire has gone out, so the ship passes them by. The relationship between Ralph and Jack deteriorates quickly.
