I assume you are referring to Chapter 11, when Ralph and Piggy are at Jack's camp in an attempt to get Piggy's glasses back.  Jack and Ralph are fighting when Piggy raises up the conch to demand his glasses and that the fighting stop.  Roger hits Piggy with a thrown rock, causing Piggy's fall and death.
