Wireless Record from Coast to
At San Francisco recently wag
made public a message which had
teen received by wireless from the
steamer Tahiti, which was anchored
to. the harbor at- Papeete, 3,658 miles
from San, Francisco. This is the first
known wireless message to be re
ceived from Papeete. -
The Tahiti sailed from that port
ch June 26 The message said: "Fine
weather, have had a delightful trip,
all well," The message was relayed
by the Manuka, another steamer of
the Union Steamship line,. which was
then 1,400 miles off the coast, making
the distance from the Tahiti to the
Manuka 2,258 miles.
A short time ago the Union. Steam
ship company's officials established a
rule throughout their service that at
least one of the deck officers on each
steamer should be familiar with the
wireless telegraphic code, so that the
wireless could be manned in the event
the regular wireless operator met
with an. accident. As this knowledge
by a deck officer, adds materially to
his chances of advancement they are
studying with great avidity.

A year will have elapsed since Cap
tain Edward Nllson, master of the
American bark Heclai, noV riding tt
anchor off the port, displaying distreivi
lignals, had his last glimpse of the
timbered headlands of Puget Sound.
The Hecla, called at Honolulu late
last evening, the skipper having de
cided to make this port, following a
long and tedious passtge from New
castle, N S. W In order to take on
additional supplies of provisions. 7
Captain Nllson Is no stranger to
Honolulu shipping. Ten years ago,
the veteran navigator made a number
of trip to these Islands, at the tlma
his command being engagea' in the
Australian coal trade;
The Hecla cleared the Sound over
a year ago, with a full shipment of
lumber destined for Australia. The
consignment was ordered to Brisbane,
and the Hecla was delayed at the
Queensland port for ninety days be-,
fore the la$t of the timber was dis
charged. The Heels- was then ordered to New
castle, and' completing the taking on
of 2127 tons Australian coal, the
Hecla was dispatched for San Fran
cisco on April 30th.
"There is no shortage of water on
board the Hecla," declared the skip
per this morning, when he came
ashore to arrange for the replenish
ing of his stores. 7 V
Captain Nilson states that the Hec
la made a very slow parsage, mainly
for the reason that the bottom of the
vessel is covered and encrusted with
a thick layer of barnacles and sea
weed. The. windjammer today ccrrledfour
thousand gallons of water,' a supply eo
the skipper states, suScient to last
until the vessel finally reaches destin
Lack of Drovli'slons served to decide
the skipper upon diverting his course
In the direction, of Honolulu. After
taking . an accomt of stock it was
found thtt provisions in stock would
have lasted hla erew but eighteen days
which to CapUln Nllson's Idea left a
rather scant nargln.
The windjaiimer did not enter the
harbor but rode at anchor outside, and
It was 1 the Intention to dispatch
the Hecla for San Frahc'.ico this aft
ernoon. The Hecla Is declared as one of the
very few and fast disappearing num
ber of wooden -windjammers that con
tinue to display the Stars and Stripes
at the various ports of the world.
No sickness or trouble occurred on
board, during the long cruVie' of the
Hecla,- according to'the statements of
local officers who visited ihe. vessel
