THE SCHOONER PROSPER
WERGKED AT PORT ALLEI
Trim Lumber Vessel Loses Anchorage I n
Kona Storm Sunday Afternoon And Is
Beached At Mouth of Hanapepe River
Back Believed Broken British Yeoman
Has Second Narrow Escape In Three Weeks
The American schooner Prosuer,
Captain Murchison, which arrived
at Port Allen a few days ago with
a cargo of lumber for the Kauai
Railway Company, is a wreck at
the mouth of Hanapepe river, in
side of Hanapepe Hay. about a
quarter of a mile from Port Allen
boat landing, having dragged her
anchors opposite the Port Allen
landing Sunday afternoon, after
which she was purposely steered
for the mud flat at the mouth of
the river to escape complete disas
ter on the breakwater.
Her keel is gone and, worst of
all, it is believed that her back is
broken, on which latter account it
would likely be next to impossible
to take her to a drydock.
She will probably ultimately be
sold and broken up where she lies.
This, however, will be a matter to
be determined after a more careful
survey bv experts.

Tender Columbine went aro'und
from Hanatnaulu to Port Allen
yesterday afternoon and towed the
bark British Yeoman out beyond
the heavy surf, where she was
anchored, the Columbine taking
up a position nearby to tender any
assistance that might be necessary.

the steamer Wailele, which had
left Honolulu at about 10 o'clock
in the morning, arrived off Poit
Allen, got a line on the British
Yeoman and began towing her to
sea. The Columbine picked up
the bark outside and left with her
for Honolulu (the Wailele coming

j mail.) where, the intention is,
she will he put into drvdock.What
the fate of the steamer and her tow

it is that they struck into one ot

All AUTO CRASHES
NTO CAE CARS
The railway crossing on the Na
wiliwili side of Hotel Lihue is res
pons'ble for .another bad automo
bile accident, which occurred last
Tuesday evening just after dark,
and came neir resulting seriouslv
to two men.
The car belonged to Albert Hor
ner. Jr., of Kapaa, and was being
driven by him. With him in the
front seat was E. W. Carden. of
the Lihue bank. The voting men
had been down to Nawiliwih to
superintend the embarking o f
shipments bv the steamer of that
The car had rounded the last
turn into Lihue and was approach
ing the hotel it an average speed.
When within a very short distance
of the railway crossing, a train of
cars suddenly emerged from the
cane field and were being backed
across the road. The auto was too
close to escape collision and in a
second there was a crash, the ma
chine driving in between two cars,
knocking both from the track.
The speed of the auto had been
slightly checked, and both Horner
and Carden, being light and athlet
ic, sprang from it. Both were
bruised, however, in addition to
which. Carden received a gash on
the chin and both of his arms weie
slightlv sprained, The car had a
remarkable escape, being much
less injured than might reasonably
be supposed. .
It is stated that a flag man was
present at the time, but was not
at his post of duty on the road and
no warning of the approaching
train whatever was given.
A mail wagon met with a simi
lai accident at the same i rossing
some niontas ago.

Mrs. Knudsen, of Kekaha, and
Supervising Principal and Mrs.
Brodie, of Hanapepe. Owing to
the bad weather, travelling was
not over pleasant while the super
intendent was here, particularly
on the Hanalei side.
Before leaving Mr. Kinnev ex
pressed himself as well satisfied
with conditions as he found them

minor improvements here and thee
will be supported.
