Purser Grasett Tells a Sad Story.
Purser" Grasett of the bigf Tenyo
Maru, which "steanjed to; berth, ,al
Alakea wharf tliis morning, following
a fine trip down from San Francisco,
is withal a brave man and fears not
'the alleged erratic pursuit of the "hoo
doo He "was reminded this morning that
an anxious - inquirer from shore had
failed to locate room "thirteen" in the
Toyo Kisen Kaisha liner.
"There's nothing to fear from num
ber thirteen, declared Grasett, while
successfully attending to the wants of
a half dozen passengers at one and
the same time.. ;
"A Pacific Coast steamer from the
Sound to San Francisco was followed
by thirteen sharks, .and had thirteen
passengers aboard. The captain or
dered one of the passengers to shoot
one of the sharks to change the luck
of the vessel, which was making poor
time.' At the thirteenth shot one shark
turned over on its back and died,'
whereupon Ae steamship made thir
teen knots an hour to port It is be
lieved that the originator of the story
was thirteen years old."

down in about thirty feet of water. A
cofferdam is being built about the
ship, and she will be raised in about
Six weeks. It is thought that she is
little damaged by her immersion.

lock this evening will carry a com
paratively small list of cabin pasen
gtrs for Hilo. It has never been the
