On the 2 ist of last March the brig
1Nitiito, alias the Surprise, alias the
Nicholas, sailed away from the harbor
of Honolulu on an unknown quest,
her departure shrouded in the most
bewildering mystery. On the loth
instant the bark A I my arrived in port,
having on board the first returning
Argonaut Henjamin Mason.
The tale he tells is not wildly sen
sational. Vet, as he recounts it to his
familiars, 'tis a picturesque and pleas
ing talc that loses vastly in this curt
retelling. In reading, it must be re
membered that this is a story of only one
man out of many. Hut it bears upon
its face the semblance of truth, and is
punted for what it is worth.
In the early autumn of 1882, John
I'eavcy, a young blacksmith then work
ing for .Mr. Ilojt, conceived the ad
venturous scheme of fitting out a small
ship to visit the southeast coast of
Africa, to dare, in that dark and
treacherous clime, the chances of a
I'eavcy had a little money ; so had
several of his acquaintances. It would
be easy enough to buy a little schooner
or some other small-sized vessel and
leave these isles of indolence or too
much hard work, as the case might
be and seek fortune and mayhap fame
where Afric's sunny fountains roll
down its golden sands, and so forth.
Some time in October there came to
Honolulu .1 Swedish, Danish or Nor
wegian sailor named l'ennien. 1 le had
been a merchant captain, he said; and,
as events proved, was really a capable
navigator. He was accompanied bv
one william Compton, also a sailor of
considerable experience. lloth were
ready for anything that might turn up,
and each was capable of assisting
circumstances somewhat. The captain
and his friend fell in with I'eavcy or
with some of his associates, frjr by that
time a number of persons had become,
interested in I'eavey's scheme. But
when the captain heard he laughed at
or gently pooh-hoo'd the folly of court
ing the dread malaria of the African
coast, its savage beasts and still more
saVage ifien particularly as none of the
party knew the languages there em
ployed. As for gold mining in Africa
that demanded too much capital and
was far too dangerous a venture. Hut
if they would go where he could lead
them they should find a land of splen
did mines, unworked or worked to no
advantage J and, while a portion of the
party remained to mine, the captain
and his crew mitjht bring back salmon
from the splendid fisheries along the
coast. He would not tell exactly
where, because 'twas loo good a thing
to share with any one, else ; but if they
trusted him he was willing to place his
life in their hands if he proved false to
his promises. This, in brief, was the
captain's oft-repeated story; and, be
fore long, he had so won the confidence
of the enthusiastic I'eavcy and the
others that the company purchased the
brig from Messrs. Cartwright and Dow
sett for the sum of $3,000. The share
holders were as follows : H. O. and H.
N. Crabbc, M. W. and V. Lowell, D.
Haywood, Henjamin Mason, Nelson
W. Hrundagc, John M. Nelson, James
M. and J. D. Arnold, Walter itixby,
John I'eavcy, J. W. Jackson, Henry
Lancaster, August Lindberg, John G.
Feller, Alfred llarrett, Robert Tcss
mcr, Thomas McCormack, M. Man
gcro and John Reed. One of
the party went to San Francisco
and purchased picks, shovels, sluice
forks and other mining implements.
Several hunched dollars worth of re
pairs were done on the condemned
brig, under charge of the captain and
mate, neither of whom had money, but
who took charge of the repairs and
undertook to navigate the expedition
for a share in the profits. Jointly the
two were to have one and one half
shares in the mine and eight shares
in the fish which were to be pur
chased for salt in the distant dorado
the captain and mate putting their time
and experience against, the money and
work of the others. Although the
captain refused to tell the adventurers
wliere he was going, he did tell them
enough to induce the choice of the
sonorous .title: "The KasttSibcria
Fishing and Mining Company."
After many mysterious meetings,'
after much dissuasion of fearful friends
and not a little rather spiteful jeering
from the unfriendly or the 'scornful,
fourteen of the company twenty-two
in all embarked on board the Ninito
argo and set their faces towards the
goal of the golden fleece.
The Ninito yas .manned as follows ;
V. W. Perituien, captain; William
Compton, first mate; David Haywood,
second mate ; Robert Termer, cook;
N, W, Hrundage, steward ; John W.
Jack.on, M. Mangcro, I'hilip Reed and
A, Lindberg, fceamen. The following
shareholders went as jwssengers ; War
wick. Nelson, Mason, James M. Arnold,
llarrett, Feller, I'eavcy and Itixby.
Of those on board ; the second
mate and two others were negroes;
there was one German, Lcnthurg ; and
one Japanese, Mangaro. 'AH except
the captain, the first mate and the sailor
named Phil Reed were owners in the
Tie captain was to tell them where
they were Kii'S so soon as 'be tug left
them outside the channel. Hut, at that
interesting moment, most of the boys
wciyia trifle sick, and the first mate
thought it would be best la wait till
they all were well enough to be called
together. It was dead calm on the
following day, and the boys could easily
come together; and they asked the
captain for the wishedfor information.
He told them to look at their pass

Hakodadi, Japan, where he left the
ship. Was he Lee Chat ?
1 hat small sensation past, the islands
faded, the deep blue arch of skv. the
deep blue floor of sea, around, above
tnem in its terrible monotony, there
was nothing to prevent the deepest
and bluest reflection upon the wild
goose (or golden goose) chase on
which they were so blindly sailing.
Soon after they were fairly tinder
way an intimacy developed between
Jack Nelson, the captain and the mate.
Nclron was admitted to the cabin to
the exclusion of the other passengers,
and was evidently consulted on matters
of importance. A feeling developed
early in the voyage that they were plot
ting something. Nelson pretended
friendship with Mason and, one or two
others of the crew, and often let fall
sly insinuations of what might be
to their advantage if they would con
form to the plans of the captain. The
scheme, so far as Mason could fathom
it. was to land most of the adventurers
and then go to the nearest port and
sell the vessel, dividing the "swag."
Hut the captain did not let fall, or at
least Nelson did not repeat it, any hint
of the faCt afterwards made clear that
the scheme of mining was impractic
able and paying mines a myth.
The passengers were first requested,
then required, and afterwards ordered
to perform sailors' duty so far as it
was possible, and were spoken to and
of most insolently by the first mate
tnd so, like Captain kickl, they
sailed and they sailed. And on their
lorticth day out reached Hakodadi, the
principal sea port of the southern por
tion of the island of Yesso, and only
a little south of their destination, Vlod
ivostock:, situate on l'ctcr the Great's
Bay, an indentation of the Manchu-
nan coast just across the Japan sea.
At Hakodadi, the captain and Jack
Nelson went ashore, afterwards the
captain and the first mate eventually
the nrst mate and lour ol the others in
cluding Nelson and Mason.
Ihe last party remained on shore
all night, at a public house. During
the night Nelson came into the room
occupied by Mason and tried to steal
the lattcr's watch ; Heine detected in
time by Mason, Nelson became
abusive, and, on the following morning,
threatened to kill Mason when they
reached the ship, if Mason should say
any thing about the affair. .
Mason determined to take the bull
by the horns. On reaching the ship,
he went down into the cabin, look his
rifle, loaded it, put on his cartridge
belt, thrust a long and sharp sailor's
kniie into it, and waited for his man.
In due course, Nelson came down the
hatchway. As he entered the cabin.
Mason levelled his rifle, took point blank
aim at Nelson's head and nulled the
trigger. Fortunately the cartridge
missed fire. Nelson rushed away to
the captain's cabin, told his story and
demanded that Mason should be arres
ted Had that action taken place,
the Ninito would probably he
now in this port, as there is at
Hakodadi an American consul, to
whom the whole story of the contro
versy between the owners and the offi
cers of the ship must have been told.
That official would iirobably have seen
through the captain's scheme, and
might have taken measures to return
the ship to this port, as he could
scarcely have failed to tell the men the
truth about fishing and mining in Si
beria ; while there is, unfortunately,
no American Consul at Vlodivostock.
Hut the wily captain knew his ropes
better than his less crafty colleague.
He "hushed up" the matter, so that
Nelson and Mason shook hands, and
the ship proceeded on its way, having
remained four clays at Hakodadi. Two
days later the Ninito reached Vlodivos
tock, where, so far as is now positively
known, she still remains.
The third chapter of Hen Mason's
yarn begins when the Ninito sailed
slowly into the fine bay of Peter the
Great, and past the wonderful island
where lay buried the golden fleece their
Judas-Jason had promised Ihem.
" I saw an island with a fine light
house on it, and a lot of huts that
looked as if there might have been
minin' there one day or 'nothcr. Hut
I didn't see any minin'. And pretty
soon we came in sight of the town, and
in the harbor four men of war were
lay in'. Then I said to myself 1
'There's a mighty slim chance of
minin' here.' " And so it proved.
As at Hakodadi, Nelson and the
captain were the first to go ashore.
Then, again, the can tain and the m.itc.
They pretended to be trying; to netT""1 ,,lorc r the m'rnal ,lm than
licenses to mine and fish. Aftr tw em Bot ' " few h " I
days, Mason and three or four others
were permitted to go ashore also.
Mason was determined to find out
something, and the first English speak
ing .person he met "gave the whole
thing dead away." Mason learned that
under no circumstance could they ob
tain a license to mine, while the license
to fish could not lc obtained except by
application to St. Petersburg.
Mason returned to (he ship and told
the others what he had heard. Then

The" captain and the mate entered
one of the ship's boats and were pulled
to the nearest Russian man of war.
Presently they returned followed by a
boat containing an officer and a guard
of marines. To this officer Mason was
turned o-ron a charge of attempting
The man-of-war was the Russian
corvette HippL The officer who ottid
ated at this formal arrest talked English
and questioned Mason, who told him
Ihe whole story. When the officer
learned that the trouble had happened
at a Japanese xrl he was indignant at
his own enforced and foolish agency In
the matter, and said he could not keep
Mason a prisoner, and should scud him
jck. jk'fore thw determination could
be carried into effect a proposition
came from the canUm that, if Uunn
would Wave the eitpetlWoe, tfc com-
pany would pay him $50 for his share
in the ship, $25 for his rifle, $10 for
some tobacco, $4 for a rubber coat and
$4 for a pair of boots.
The German steamer Hamburg, from
Hamburg, was in port, to leave that
night for Nagasaki. Mason jumped at
the chance to get away. A passport
was obtained and that night -the 1 7th
of May- he sailed away from Vntdivov
tock, esteeming himself the luckiest
American on all the Siberian coast.

watch and chain. Since that time he
has been working in the California
threshing fields and mining districts,
with varying success.
He has returned by the Almy a sad

Nelson Hrundagc has been heard from.
He was at last advices in Sacramento,
and is expected here in about three

he speaks encouragingly of the mining
prospects but says not a word of Ma
