the port buoys, but that soon Rave

er lost her second anchor, which
set her adrift in the tremendous
At this juncture the bark British
Yeoman sent out a boat, with six
men and a hawser, in a biave at
tempt to get the line on the drift
ing. Prosper. When only a few
yards from the bark, the boat was
overturned and swamped. One
man was picked up by a rope
thrown from the British Yeoman,
but the others were swept toward
the Tort Alien breadwater. All
almost miraculously landed safely
except one poor fellow who was
badly cut on the arm and about
the shoulders as a result of being
hurled upon the rocks.
The Drifting Proper
When the Prosper lost nil of her
ged up a barrel and rope and set
the former adrift. It came near
enouRh to the distressed vessel to
be picked up, and the rope was
made fast. On it a strong ca'ole
was sent ashore, and by means of
a boatswain's chair all of the sail
ors were landed on the bluff. The
captain and his two mates stayed
with their ship, keeping on the
alert all night, not knowing what
minute the swaving schooner might
go completely over. Only the sails
of the vessel, which were kept up
through the night, probably savrd
her from foundering, as only one
side seemed to be firmly grounded.
The British Yeoman
The British Yeoman had a most
remarkable run of experiences
throughout the afternoon and
flight. She was well provided
with cables (which proved her
salvation on th; occasion of the
former storm on Christmas day),
and to that alone was due her safety
when the Prosper tore loose from
but in addition to that the Katia
Railway kept huge bon-fires burn
mg on the dangerous breakwater
jail night, these being of special as
sistance to the British Yeoman.

Christmas day; and onlookers saw
no other fate for the trim, little
American schooner but certain
destruction there. Right there and
then, however, the captain of the
distressed vessel did something
entirely unexpected, but which
showed extraordinary generalship.
He ran up sails and shoved
straight ahead, clearing the dan
ger at the breakwater, continued
on up the bay toward the mouth
of Hanapepe river, quite evidently
intending to ground his vessel in
the mud at the point where the
stream empties into the bay. The
swell was so tremendously heavy,
however, that the schooner was
swerved over to the right and ran
aground, on a mixed coral and mud
shelf, about 100 feet from the
bluff, near the mouth of the river.
While in this position, officials
and employes of the Kauai Rail
way, with willing assistants, rig-
drifted about over several square-
acres of water, fighting desperately
to keep off of the breakwater.
At 8 o'clock Sundav night her
main cable parted. This was fol
lowed by shouts on board the
hark, and the craft was seen to
fairly lunge toward the breakwater.
Rockets indicating diitress were
fired high into the air, and the '
crowds on shore flocked to the I
neighborhood of the breakwater, j
expecting to see the vessel dashed ;
