In this chapter, for the first time ever, Jack is the one who uses the conch to call for an assembly.

The reason that he wants to call an assembly is because he wants to get rid of Ralph as leader.  He wants the boys to throw Ralph out and put himself in as leader instead.

At this point, however, the boys are not ready to do this.  They vote to keep Ralph.  At that point, Jack decides to leave the group along with his hunters.  He says that he will not play along with them any longer.
