S. S. ALAMEDA GOES ON
ROCK OFF FORT POINT
Strikes Amidships And
And Cargo Is Being Dismantled.
Will Repair Sidewalks Temporarily Cannot Assess Proper
ty Owners For New Walks Routine
SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 2.
There is no hopo of saving the S.S.
Alameda. Half of the cargo has
been damaged. Her section amid
ships and the forward hull have
been punctured by the rocks and
the enginoroom is filled with water.
Sho is being dismantled.
The nboyo cable received this
morning from the Marino Exchango
indicates that the old Ferry Boat
will provo a total loss. The receipt
of this information through the Ex
change, caused considerable interest
among shipping people and while
the information was bad still, it
served to settle uncertainty regard
ing the vessel and the community
at once began to inquire what was
likely to bo done by the Oceanic
S.S. Company looking towards re-
placing'lho lost vessel.
According to private advices re
ceived by shippers the S.S. Zealand-
ia was to be put on the local run.
One report was to the effect that
sho was to sail tonight from San
Francisco and the other report was
that she would sail for Honolulu
tomorrow morning. While the Zea
landia was never a popular vessel
still the fai-t that there was not to
be much delay in the steamer sche
dule was received with much satis
faction by local people. The news
that the Zealandia was to replace
the Alameda came unofficially how
over for W. G. Irwin and Company
the local agents of the company,
had not received any advices what
ever up to 11:30 o'clock this morn
ing regarding either accident or
what the company intended doing
towards replacing the vessel. The
agents sent a long cablegram how
ever this morning to the San Fran
cisco office asking for details of the
amount of freight that was damaged
and also what was to bo done to
ward maintaining the local service.
Aside from the puroly sentimen
tal aspect, for the Alameda was a
very popular boat, the loss of the
steamer is likely to cau3o consider
able loss among local consignees.
The Alameda had come to be re
garded as such a reliable vessel
that the possibility or any accident
or serious mishap overtaking her
never occurred to local shippers.
The result was that many shippers
were in the habit of shipping their
stuff without any insurance. The
cargo was valued at $100,000. Ac
cording to the information this
morning, half of this cargo was da
maged. A considerable portion of
this shipment was undoubtedly un
insured and a heavy loss is likoly
to fall on local consignees. Tho
cold storage shipments of fruits
wore likewise heavy and all of these
are likely to have perished.
Tho Alameda is thought to have
aboard well on to 1,900 tons. The
last through steamer, tho Sierra,
brought only 10 tons of rofrigorat
ed stuff from San Francisco where
sho ordinarily brings 500 tons.
This deficiency meant that tho

Aiameua wouici nave a Heavier
load to carry. T. II. Davis & Com
pany are understood to have a
heavy shipment aboard tho vessel.
Cablegrams arc being constantly
received by local consignees from
San Francisco agents inquiring if
their orders on the Alameda Shall
be duplicated. Inasmuch as no ad
vices have yet been received re
garding tho details of tho loss of
freight, local merchants are imbe
dded how to act. Only portions of
their orders may havo been dam
aged while some consignments un
doubtedly escaped all damage. M.
Mclnerny & Co., had a shipment
of stuff aboard the Alameda.
The S. S. Zealandia will un
doubtedly be the vessel that will
bo substituted for the Alameda.
Tho Zealandia arrived at San
Francisco a short time ago from a
Bpecial trip to Nome, Alaska and
as she is in condition to resume
hor sea travel she will no doubt bo
dispatched at the earliest possible
time-. The Zealandia will requiro
7J days in which to make tho trip
to this place. She is not the vessel
for the local trade however, but in
the absence of a better vessel sho
will have to serve. Tho old S. S.
Australia cannot be put on tho run
as sho was captured in Asiatic
waters by the Japaneso some weeks
ago for carrying contraband.
The accident to tho Alameda
may make a big difference in the
schedule of steamers. If the Zea
landia is put on tho run which is
probably, there will not be a ma
terial delay but should no vessel
bo substituted, then there would bo
a long wait for mainland mails.
The S. S. Manchuria arriving to
morrow, will bring tho next mail
Alter ner tho b. b. Alameda was
duo to arrive on October G and the
next vessel after tho Alameda, tho
S. S. Sonoma from San Francisco
due on, October 18. Going to tho
mainland tho S. S. Ventura will
depart from Honolulu on October
1, and the next vessel after her will
bo the S. S. Mongolia, October 27,
unless the Oceanic Company fits in
with some local boat.
Tho loss of tho Alameda is tho
first disaster of the kind in the his
tory of tho Oceanic S. S. Company
Tho concern has been in existence
since 18S2 and during that period
nothing of a material character in
tho way of a disastor has occured
before tho wreck of the Alameda on
Saturday. Tho Alameda' was the
second vessel owned by tho Oceanic
Company, tho Mariposa boing tho
first. Tho lator vessol is now runn
ing botween San Francisco and Ta
hiti under a subsidy, so sho could
hardly bo put on tho local run.
There was much sentiment connect
ed with tho Alameda and people in
Honolulu had como to regard hor
in a kindly way as if sho wcro a
part of tho islands. Certainly sho
played quito a prominent part in
;ho dovolopcmont of tho islands
In her prime sho was one of tho
crack boats of tho Pacific and still
in her old age, sho was one of the
reliable boats that plied to Hono
Much sympathy is expressed for
Captain Dowdoll her master. He
has had about tho hardest work of
any of the masters in tho service of
tho company and up to the present
tnno had not met with much mis
Whilo Captain Dowdell was firt
officer of tho Alameda, at least ten
years ago, porhaps moro, tho vessel
was caught in a fearful storm in
which sho was considerably damag
ed. Dowdell was caught forward
by a great wave that carried him
back with tremendous force strik
ing his legs against the stanchions
and horribly mangling them. On
the arrival of tho vessel in Hono
lulu he was taken to the Queen's
Hospital where ho remained for
many months. Some of the injur
ies were permanent though they
have not prevented him from fol
lowing his profession.
Inasmuch as tho pilot was on tho
bridge with Dowdell at the time of
tho wreck last Saturday, hopes aro
expressed that Dowdell will be ex
onerated. C. R. Johnson the pilot
is thought to be the same pilot who
lost tho S. S. City of New York in
sid9 the Golden Gate years ago.
Tho Alameda appsars to havo been
wrecked in mucli the same place
that the City of New York was lost.
A dense fog prevailed last Sa
turday. Tho vessol was probably
being run under a slow bell and
the current swept tho boat out of her
course on to tho rocks. Tho cur
rents of San Francisco Bay and
tho Golden Gate aro very uncertain
ings. Ihey vary m a way that
has thus far baffled all effort to se
curo any reliable record of them.
Iho Alameda had nine days la
ter mail aboard. It is probable
that none of this was lost.
Tho Merchants' Association of
Honolulu has cubled to San Fran
cisco for advices regarding tho loss
of the cargo aboard the vessel and
what vessel is likoly to be substi
tuted for tho lost steamer. It is
nbt known whether tho Alameda
