Inquiry into the Cause of the Collision.
Unlink Consular Court De Long Appears as
Jjawyer Declares his Intention to Prosecute
Captain Eyre The Taking of Evidence Com
menced Testimony of Eyre.
On the 24th of Janua
Court of Inquiry was
held in H. B.. M.s
Consulate, at Kanaffawa
into tne circum
stances attending the loss of the United
States steamer Oneida, on Monday, the
24t.li.of January, outside the Yokohama
harbor, on her voyage from Yokohama to
New York. , ,. i
The British Consul, Mr. Lowder, presided,
and he was assisted by several British ship
masters. The British Minister, Mr. Parkes, and
American Minister, De Long, were present.
The latter appeared as a lawyer, dropping
his ministerial character for the occasion.
EYBE DEMURS TO JURISDICTION.
Captain Eyre, master of the Bombay,
asked if the evidence given in this Court
If n to be allowed the assistance of his
II 1 1 1 J IA, t M SMtuaw
hirrt of a intnra iimft f
lepal adviser. Mr. Barnard. He protested
against the Court as incompetent ;
against any evidence given in it
Hi Hnnnr renlied that the Court concludes
that Captain Eyre is allowed to retain Mr.
Mr. Barnard submitted that this Court
has no power to inquire into the damage
done to a shin of another nationality; that
thp onl v comoetent Court in cases of collision
is the Sunreme Court at Shanghai. If,
therefore, this Court was to be the basis of
any ulterior criminal proceedings he protested
but if on the other hand the Court would
limit itself to inquire into the circumstances
attending: the collision, he should waive his
objections and his client would be glad to I
avail himself ol the opportunity to exculpate
Mr. De Long expressed his surprise at the
contradictory nature of the proceeding of
Captain Eyre in first asking for a court and
then protesting against it. He expressed
his intention, when this inquiry was over,
to prosecute " that man," pointing to Captain
Eyre, on the most heinous charge the evi
dence might show him guilty of.
JIr. Barnard objected to such language
being used in an English court by an Amer
ican citizen. " That gentleman," he was
informed, is a lawyer, and would thus know
that without any specific charge being pre
ferred against his client, it was contrary to
common law that the evidence here given
should be used to incriminate him.
TESTIMONY OF EYRE.
C-iptain Eyre, sworn 1 hold a master's
certificate. Am in command of the steamer
Bombay was in command on the 24th of
January, at bA p. m., in sight ot the light
house. Saw a bright light half a point on
port bow. Shortly afterward 1 made out
two side lights, green and red, I ported the
helm and kept porting until I shut the green
light in. The pilot and the chief officer
were standing by me. .On shutting out the
green light, my pilot said, " we are well
clear." My answer was " port still." The
. Yl a a
steam vessel tnen turned rjn. Almost im-
mediately afterwards, I observed the coming
vessel puttirjg her helm hard a starboard,
crossing my bow with full sails and steam.
I stopped my engines ; when she came
nearly ahead of me, I put my helm hard a
starboard to clear her, immediately after
striking her behind the mizen gear, our
quarter the shock not being more than a
graze. I turned round to see what damage
was done. I had sent the chief officer down
to see if we were making water. .1 said to
the pilot, " I don't think much harm is done,
if there is we shall soon see signal rockets."
My engines were stopped about ten minutes,
the chief officer came and reported the ship
making water forward. I then said, " I see
no signals of distress, go ahead." Nor did
I hear anything ; and as the ship was making
water 1 made speed for Yokohama. While
looking at the vessel astern, I asked my
pilot, " Supposing ship was hurt, or I should
require it, where could we go for safety?"
The answer was, " not the slightest fear,
the spit is near, you cannot get down."
Even after I came to Yokohama I thought
little of the collision. 1 had not the slightest
idea of the harm done. I did not know
what ship it was. I said when it passed me
"that is an auxiliary screw."
REPLIES TO QUESTIONS BY BARNARD.
Even after the green light was shut out I
kept the helm a port ; when the vessel crossed
my bows she was under full sail and steam,
going with wind and tide, the breeze was
strong. The ship was about 100 feet distant
when she crossed my bow, another 20 feet
and I should have cleared her. I do not
think I was going at more than 7 to 8
knots. The wind was against me, the night
was dark. When I first saw the bright
light, I think the ship was a mile distant. I
can't tell the time elapsing from then until
the collision. The ship evidently starboarded
her helm, she must have been going at the
rate of 14 knots. After finding the ship
coming right down upon me, 1 starboarded
my helm, to clear her. I was on the bridge
the whole tune. With me were the pilot
ana tne cniel omcer. My other people were
all at their proper stations. On forepart of
tne poop was tne second officer, and the
fourth officer standing by the wheel to see
that the telegraphic orders were attended to.
I sent the fourth officer there because half
an hour previously the quartermaster did
not answer my signals quick enough.
When I said ten minutes, I meant from the
time I stopped the engines until I went on
V s a .
again, l nave never been in these waters
before. I hat was my reason for takino-a
pilot. I had no idea of the nationality of
the ship. I have been to sea 37 years. I
have been in command of vessels for 20
years. ' I saw no damage on the ship, but it
was my own and the pilot s opinion that her
quarter gallery had gone. I saw no rockets
or signals of any sort, notwithstanding I
looked for them. , 1 did not hear any guns.
I did not see the other vessel clew up her
sails. . At the moment of collision my pilot
called out from the bridge: " What do you
mean : He seemed to ainree with me.
that if any harm had been done, we should
see signals. We have always six rockets
and six blue lights on the bridge. It would
take less than a minute to send Tin a rocket.
On the morning of the 25th, I received a
message from one of our men-of-war, I have
orgotten which, requesting me to proceed to
the spot of collision. This was' about day-
a a s-. .
lght. Alter a tew minutes reflection, I did
not think myself justified in going' down,
not knowing what injury 1 had received on
my bows. I sent to the chief officer to
ascertain how much "water. " His reply was
9 in fore compartment,' and 16 to 18 in
second. I then said, "I cannot go."-. A
few minute? after a note came on bo trd from
our Agent asking me. to go. At the, same
time an officer came with a verbal message
entreating me to go. Jjriade the remark: ,"I
am on the point of going at the wish of our
Agent, but almost under protest.'' I found on
going down that the water was gaining upon I
me, and it was only by carrying the forepart
in shifting the cargo that 1 succeeaea in
keeping the water under.
REPLIES "WHILE CROSS-EXAMINED BY DE LONG
I think it was 6 P. M. when I first saw the
Oneida's lights. The collision must have
happened, five or six minutes later. I drop

I eppn an vthinrr of that sort I should have
(stopped at once. I heard no sound. My
I pilot did not tell me that he heard anything.
If the ship s steam wnisue nau ueeu wuwn or
o-uns fired within fifteen minutes after the
collision I don't think I should have heard
them, so stronjr was the breeze separating
us. My engines were stopped a couple of
minutes before the collision, when 1 saw the
collision was imminent. When I started
was looking astern through my glass to the
J Spot of collision, and continued so for a good
j quarter of an hour. 1 did not hail the ship.
I vas too busv at that time to trv to avoid
the collision. The concussion was very
i Ijfrht. On mv bow were hanging afterward
the other ship's gaff and a boom. I was not
i at all entangled in the ship. The Bombay
hs an old iron ship, her plates one-quarter of
an jnch. thick. A spar from the other ship
I has perforated both sides of my ship, ana is
j sticking in broken off. It is below the water
! mark. The spar has cone right through in
j the stem. My reason for sending the chief
officer down to examine my ship, notwith
standing the concussion was so slight, was
. . m 9
that tnis is always done, iuy snip is in com
partments, and sustained no injury beyond the
fore compartment. If the fore compartment
had been filled with water it would depend
upon the bulk head if the ship was in danger
of sinking. My motive for leaving was tnat
I did not know what injury my ship had re
ceived. I found it was making water and I
had passengers and mails on board ; on the
other hand I saw no signal of my assistance
rieinrr wanted. I beran to feel that other
parts of my vessel might be injured, and
asked the pilot where I could beacn tne ves
sel to save her. It was not until yesterday
that I could ascertain what damage was done
to my ship's bows. On my arrival here my
chief steward went ashore and so did the
passengers, and I requested that they would
mention the collision ; but the first thing I
should have done next morning, was to report
to our Agent and the naval officer. I anchored
far out because after having one collision, 1
did not want to venture among the shipping
on a dark night in a strange place. When 1
saw the other vessel's side lights I knew she
was a steamer. The law, when two ships
meet, end to end, is to port their helm, re-
' gardless of sail or steam ; but when two sail-
; mg snips meet, and tne one is on tne star-
board bow, I think the one on the starboard
tack continues her course, and the ports give
the way. When a steamer meets another
steamer, which latter is also under sail, and
! comes on her port tack, each vessel ports her
' helm. first saw the bright light about a
j mile distance. I cannot speak positively
j with regard to the bearings of the Spit, but
tiie light was south and 11 east. About a
half a point on the port bow, I saw the same
time a red and green light.
DIRECT EXAMINATION RESUMED.
Neither did I hear any screech, nor did
vessel. 1 did not hear that night from any
i one that the other ship's side was cut open ;
! the second officer reported to me that he
I heard from the other shin a hail, which h
answered. My idea was that nothing was
wrong with the other ship, and finding water
coming into my vessel, I was anxious to get
up as quick as possible. My vessel is about
lo years old.
REPLIES TO THE COURT.
II 1 1 I . 1 i.i.v
my own i ignis were Durnmg Drignt. I can
see them from my bridges. My course was
due northeast. I did not think of reversing
the engines, but I do not think there was
time for it. I consider not the pilot but my
self having charge of the vessel. 1 ordered
the movements of the helm, flying signal for
puot. i tound the man in a schooner, he
came on board and introduced himself. In
these waters one does not look for pilots cer
tificates. The wind did not moderate after
the collision. Supposing 1 had turned rouud
alter the collision 1 don't think 1 should
have reached her in less than half an hour,
because the other ship remained stationary
uuer me collision, it would have taken me
some ten minutes to swing back to the place
of collision (Mr. Barnard objected to these
questions, but was corrected). The pilot
gave me the bearings of the spit. A steamer
generally gives way to a sailing vessel
passing under her stern. When the vessels
collided I did not hear any crash as to the
l l- r - ,
oreaKing oi limners.
lhe collision happened about eighteen
" I T T .
mnes irom my ancnorage. When 1 sent
down my officer I got to know that the boom
and piece of sail were hanging about my
L. bT 4 la .
oow. i oraerea to get it in. it did not from
these traces strike me whether the other ves
sel was bigger or smaller than mine, nor did
it strike me that my ship must have pene
trated far in order to take away the other
ooom. l ao not know what spar it is which
is left in my ship's stem. When 1 was going
up a Knew ine spar was there. . You could
see it from both sides. It struck me to be a
singular thing that the spar should be in my
bow. I thought it was my bowsprit which
took away the gaff and sail. These things
were discovered almost immediately after the
collision. My ship carries seven boats, two
ine-Doats, two cutters, a mail, a gig. and
jolly boat My crew in all 93. This i3 the
first accident I ever had. When two ships
collide, 1 do not consider it usual to commu
nicate or stay by each other, unless you
think the other seriously damaged. I did
not think the other., ship was harmed
asked the pilot if he thought so, and he said,
No ; there is spit." When two ships come
into collision during a dark night, I am not
aware that it is. customary for the one to as
certain if the otherhas suffered damage.
Perhaps- in the epen sea. not in close Drox-
imity of land. Blue lights and rockets are
the proper signals of distress, also gun firing
if you are within. hearing distance. I Aid
not send up rockets as I wanted no help. I
A. al - . -
cannot say that it is recognized practice that
snips ao not communicate atter a, collision,
unless the one . sends up rockets or fires a
gun. My instructions as Captain of a mail
steamer are to stop for nothing but to save
life. It was at that "time my firm opinion
that there was no danger. It did not occur
to me, being so close to my, anchorage, and
seeing ho signals to stop until I had commu
nicated with the Oneida '. 1 cannot account
how the spar could strike my ship below the
water line ; at that time I thought that the
spar might have struck, out from the other
ship's quarter. , 1. struck abaft the rnizzen
rigging, , and presumed she could, at; all
events, easily beach on the. spit.
Ine further hearing was nostDoned
The following testimony was taken on the
2Sth of January : . ,
A; W. Eyre, recalled" The wind was
NE to NNE at the time. Steamers going
ahead generally draw the wind. There was
a moderate chopping sea ; it was neither
rough nor calm.'.'
To Mr. Barnard" My whistle vras
blowing. During the whistling I could not
hear any one call. The steam was not
blowing off, as the engines were not then
2b the Court " When Kanonsaki light
bore abeam of my ship it was about one
mile distant but I am not quite sure. Having
a pilot on board, I trusted to him for the
channel and attended myself to the lookout.
I saw a vessel, a junk, coming down at the
time the light bore abeam and I passed her
to port. 1 steered a NE to N course when
the light was abeam. That course was cal
culated to carry us clear to Saratoga Spit.
Soon after passing the light, the pilot al
tered the course to Zt. 1 left the pilot to
steer the ship. The Commander only
watches a pilot, taking charge if he should
find him incompetent. In India the rule is
so strict that if a pilot is interfered with, be
will bring the ship to an anchor and leave
This concluded the evidence of Capt. Eyre
when the Court proceeded to examine the
chief officer and pilot. Their evidence being
in substance identical with that given by the
Captain of the Bombay. The examination
was continued on the 29th, when the 1st, 2d
and 4th officers were in the witness box.
Their evidence goes to corroborate Capt.
Eyre's. The Court was to re-assemble at
