ter line and let vessel lie head to
wind and sea. 11.00 a. tn. wind
and sea increasing, carried Pott
Quarter line t o Starboard bow,
hove taut and slacked away all
cable o n Starboard anchor and
tome on Port cable, giving both
sides equal strain, also buoy line.
About 2:00 p. m., current from
Hanapepe river carried stern to
Eastward, putting vessel on an
angle of about . 30 to wind and
ua, now breaking heavily from
well outside of us, having four
fathoms of water under stern.
About 3.30 p.m. Starboard cable
parted at hawse-pipe; slacked out
all chain on Port anchor steadily;
also bttov mooring keeping about
equal straili on each sea breaking
heavily over the bow and along
the waist, flooding decks; at times
coming like a solid wall, hitting
the Port bew heavily and vessel
About 4;00 p. m. Port Cable
parted at the hawse-pipe' and in a
few minutes buoy moorings part
ed. Same time vessel's keel hit
bottom and a piece of keel came
floating; immediately hoisted sail
in an effort to beach htr on sand
at mouth of Hanapepe Kiver;every
time the sea left her she hit hard
on the bottom, finally stopping on
the Eastern point of the river with
bow overhauging the rivet.
A crowd of people on shore fol
lowed the vessel ready to render
assistance and made every effort to
get line to us by swimming and
heaving line, but wind and sea
were too strong. Finally floated
a cask with line attacked with the
river current alongside our bow,
which we picked up and lines were
passed ashore and block and boat
swain's chair attached; sailors and
cook passed ashore dry. First
and Second mate and myself re
maining, as we felt the vessel was
quite safe for the night.
Kept sail on and by this morn
ing (17th) vessel had worked a
cross the river and lay on sand
beach with stern in the river, sei
breaking heavily and tumbing
heavily. There was three feet of
water in hold when vessel stopped
on point; keel kept floating up in
The seven members of crew were
safely landed a few minutes after
6:00 p. M,, and a number of men
on shore kept a fire burning on
the cliff close to the shore all night
ready to render assistance if need
ed. This morning they carried the
life line across the river and made
it fast to a tree from our bow, so
that we could pass to and from the
shore; and some men remained at
hand all the time.
When Starboard cable parted, I
signalled to that effect, merely to
let people on shore know what had
happened. Bark "British Yeo
man" (anchored outside the brea
kers) signalled "Do you want a
lite boat". I was in the act of
hoisting "No" when the sailors
came after wanting signal "N.
C." hoisted as they wanted to be
taken off. I tried to explain to
'them that anybody coming to our
assistance would be in more dan
cer than we weie-that the vessel
not likely to break up in a hurry,
that we would go in close and
could get ashore on a line; told
them to take the small boat under
the stern if they wished and land
behind the breakwater, but if they
wanted NC" hoisted to do it,
and they did. after a fashion-and
waved their caps toward the "Bri
tish Yeoman", which immediately
launched a life boat with six men
in it, which filled in the breakers
but finallv landed behi ng the
breakwater. The crew (from the
"Br. Yeoman" life-boat) ran a
long ths beach and helped my men
On account of ship rolling and
heaving when sea struck her, gang
of men held the inshore end of the
line, instead of making It fast,
keeping an even strain on it while
the men passed ashore,
Too much can not be said in
praise of those on shore in their
efforts to render assistance render
ed. , ,
The vessel is now without keel
or rudder or stern post and water
is level in hold with sea outside,
and her back is broken. Miizen
rigging slack and part carried
There is about 200 M. feet of
lumber in hold remainirg of car

First and second mate remain
with me on board in hopes of sav

Deputy Sheriff W. O, Crowell,
who went to Seattle to arrest a
young Hawaiian who committed a
crime at Hanapepe some weeks
ago and got away on a sailing ves
sel, will return next week, with
Fleur de Lis, ladies' hairdress
ing, shampooing, manicuring and
scalp treatment. All kinds of hair

A certain Korean, with Salvation
Army tendencies, took a car out
from Waimea Sunday and the en
tire outfit came to grief on the
road before Makaweli was reach
ed, The Salvation Army man was
doubtless on a mission of mercy
of some sort, so taking the car
out an Sunday may be excused.
(At any rate, it may be taken for
granted that he was not out for a
"joy ride," for, from all accounts,
Salvation Ai my men are not keen
on that sort of thing, ) But he
had no license to drive a car, an
omission for which no man is ex
cused on Kauai; and landed in the
clutches of the police. The, car
was quite badly wrecked and left
ou the roadside over Sunday.
