LAKSA 31 A X A ;
THE GREAT HERO of tie MALAYS. !
E7 CTE2AY GI2S32T.
Esi it- of I.alianiaria in U-irricn.
Lakainana' fleet of war canoe, faTrt-J by
the iuor!'xn breeze. eaileJ swi.'tly nlor the cuaet
of Sutnatrii ; rounded its northern extremity,
passed through the Straits of Malacca, and cross
ing a portion of the China Sea, arnveJ off the
coant of Borneo, at a point known to the chief of
the fleet as being Bear the mouth of the river
Pontianak, upon which was eituated a small
town of the same name, noted for its wealth in
gold and d'amonda.
The war canoes held crl the coast during day
light, so as not to be observed by the people of
Pontianak ; but as soon as night set in they stood
close in shore. Laksamana descried, before dark
ness had fully bhut in the land, three lare trad
ing prahus at anchor, fie listened to the clarg
of a gong, and to the loud resonant beat of a
Malay drum, which he knew was a call of the
people of the place to an assemblage for religious
purposes. lis waited some time until all sounds
from the shore had ceased, and all lights were
extinzui-hed. Then Laksamana etripped him
self, and, having fastened to his neck a heavy,
sharp knife, also a steel and tinder with which to
etrike a light, wrapped in a piece of cloth, he let
himself down in the water and swam ashore,
landing at a point where dense shrubbery grew
close to the water's edge. He obnerved from this
cover many points of the town, and many people
moving to and fro. He waited awhile till all was
still, and then moved stealthily forth, being aided
In his movements by the faint light of a new
moon ; and he moved around in a crouching
attitude, to spy out the condition and extent of
the little town.
Laksamana was now like a wolf prowling
around a sheep pen, in order to kill and devour.
He had gone forth on this expedition to rob and
destroy, as a pirate. In bis days all Malay chiefs
took part occasionally in piratical expeditions;
and, notwithstanding the general advanco in en
lightenment of the people Malasia, and the in
crease of power of great Governments in the great
Malay Archipelago, yet at this day many Malay
chiefs of the Island of Sumatra, and of ot'ier
Malay Islands, send forth one or more piratical
war vessels full of warriors to rob great ships
and they have of late years succeeded in captur
ing English, Dutch, and other European ships.
The ancient and modern, both Pagan and Maho
medan, have regarded such enterprises as noble
and honsrable. Laksamana, however, was not
moved by any feeling of the honor of warlike
enterprise to undertake this expedition, but solely
by a trand sentiment of love. It was his mighty
love lor the Princess Umba that prompted hun
to go forth to rob. and perhaps slay his fellow
men. He kne- nothintr ol a spirit which would
have taught him to regard the rights of his fellow
beings, but was animated by the virtues of 1ns
time to have courage to fiiiht men, and devotion
to the love of a woman. He cared not for gold
and diamonds : lie hardly understood their value.
Ho would not fight a man in order to get these
things. But ho would fight a roan, or any num
ber of men, for the sake of the possession of
Umba, the woman he loved above all others ; and
because Kine Sapidiwf her father, whose authority
he reverenced, had ordered him to procure slaves.
and gold and diamonds, as the price of his wife.
he would try to get them even if he had to
slaughter multitudes of men in doin,' so. And
had King Sipidin commanded him even as
Laban commanded Jacob to work many years
at the common labor of herding animal' instead
of engaging in an expedition of piracy he would
have obeyed in the same spirit.
And now the pirate chief Ltksarcana prepared
to attack Pontianak. He observed the extent of
the place, the number of houses, and that there
were, perhaps, about one thousand people.
among whom there would be at most about two
hundred men capable of offering any resistance to
him and his band of determined warriors. Our
hero felt that though he only had fifty fighting;
men. yet each ono was a chief and a true soldier
in spirit ; and he felt that they would be sufficient
led by him to capture the town, and destroy
the whole of the unprepared people, if need be.
so Liaksamana determined to take the place
by surprise that night. He crept back stealthily
to the beach, and swam off to Ins war canoes.
He ordered all his fighting hipm to strip off all
clothing, except a vnalo, ns he had done, and.
taking each one a kreese. or crooked dagger, ana
three small spears, or lances, to hurl, and some
material for torches with t!.eef things in
hand, to swim ashore. The band of fishermen
warriors landed, and, after proceeding in order
inland a short distance, Lakasamara baited them
at the outskirt of the town.
This town of Pontianak was formed around a
large Fquare, in the centre of which was a small
building that served as a sort of sentry-house,
near which was snspended an enormous drum,
formed out of a huge hollow trunk of a tree, which
when struck, would make a loud booming noise.
A sentinel kept watch in or near this sentry-box.
as was then the ease in all small towns or villages
in Borneo and other Malay islands, to guard
against piratical surprises ; and when any cause
for alarm was observed, he would strike upon the
drum, making a loud noise and outcry, and then
all the men of the town or village, being aroused.
would rush out of their huts or houses into the
centre of the sqnaro to assemble together, in
order to meet and repel the danger.
Laksamana, leaving his men, entered this
Equare alone. He crawled on all-fours, and, in
the partial orscurity ol the night, he would ue
mistaken in his slow, stealthy approach, for a
huge doe or other beast prowling around for
waifs of food. As tho chief advanced, ho espied
the sentinel leaning against a wall, and evidently
asleep. lie approached near, and sprang upon
him like ft tiger, and grasping bis throat with
one hand to prevent any outcry, ne wun me
other hand struck his dagger to the heart of the
man, so that he sunk down dead, without a
And now the ncrce natnre oi Laksamana was
aroused by blood. He was now a relentless
savage, and was eager to lend his men on to
slaughter. He joined his band, and ordered forty
of them, in squads of five, to proceed stealthily
to different points at the hack ot the houses, on
the outside of the square each one of these men
having in his hands, hesides his weapons, a piece
of resinous wood that would flame up when lit.
and a piece of punk, or rotten wood, that had
been ignited during their halt in trie grove.
which, when blowei upon, would produce n
flame to kindle the resinous torch. And the
chief, with the remaining ten of his hand, went
to the watch-house in the centre of the square :
and when he knew that his forty warriors had
had time to be properly posted, he struck fiercely
upon the great drum, and made leariul outcry.
The men ol rontianan rouseu up ir ra mcir
slumber on their mats, rushed out of doors, and
ran towards the watch-house to find out the cause
of alarm ; tut as they approached the place to
meet their faithful sentinel, they were terrified
by fierce cries of terrible-looking nakr-d men,
dimlv seen in the niz'it. who rushed upon the
villagers and struck down with lance, or stabhed
them with the kreescs, as. in their fear, they
crowded and huddlpd together. And when in
their terror they turned to rush back to their
houses, they were horrified at the sight offlimes
rising from" their thatch roofs, and by hearing
the agonized cries of their women and children.
These fifty human wolves, who rushed on the
people, crying Awok ! awok ! "(Kill ! kill !)
completely terrified and subdued the poor men
of Pontianak, although they were more than ten
times the number of their invading enemy. Ihe
loud, clear, ringing voice of Laksimina inciting
to slaughter filled every heart with terror ; and
when he saw that thepeipleof the town, who
had rushed into the square, were paralyzed with
fear, running to and fro, or crowding on each
other in a helpless way like hunted sheep, and
offered no longer any resistance, he called out in
the Malay language, with a voice like a trumpet
" Lie down, every man on his face, and do not
stir, and no more shall die !
Instantly all the wretched creatures in the
square laid still and prone on their faces. And
the light from the burning houses now flaming
up and shining like noonday, showed forth a
strikins and titiful sight. The ground of the
square was covered with the pr ifitrate figures of
men, women, and children the most of them
naked, and many s-meared with blood, they moan
ing and wailing all the time whilst above them
stood the fierce soldiers of Nia naked, and red
with blood ; and foremost, apd more terrible
than all, wa the fierce, gicaotic hairy figure of
Laksamana, coverei with blood, and looking like
a tiger that had been gorging upon a slaughtered
herd of helpless animals.
Again Laksamana cried out with a l-ui voice,
calling upon the chief of Pontianak to rise up,
and come before bim. An old man stood up,
and came forward and prostrated himself before
the bloody chief, saying, " Thy slave, named
Barangkaya, desires to know the will of his
1-jrd." Now, to him, Laksamana spoke in a
gentle tone " My father, I want fifty of your
young men whose brows are yet without a
wrinkl-?; also fifty well-favored young damsels
who have never known a man, and wboae bodies
are without spot or scar of disease all of whom
are to be slaves of my lord the great chief of ia.
And furthermore, I ask you, father, for as much
gold as one of my strong men can lift ; and
an many diamonds, the size of a bean, as will
make a necklace to encircle my neck. When
these slaves, and this treasure are surrendered to
me, along with three of your best war boats,
then we will leave you, my father, and all your
people in peace."
Ihe old chief liarankay.t groaned on bearing
these words, and prayed that be and bis people
might be granted time, till day should dawn,
when they would know how to arrange and com
ply with the demands of the great lord. At this
Laksamana cried out Now, O father, the
slaves, and the gold, and the diamonds must be
delivered so that we depart before the dawn ; or,
if not so, our krecses will drink more blood, aod
we may nut stay our hands till all have peris'ied."
On hearing these dreadful word, Barangkaya
cried out in agony to the people O, my chil
dren, you hear the voice ot our lord. Come for
ward you that are young, and save the rest of
the people ! "
But all the people still re mimed prostrate and
terrified, and making agonizing outcries. Then
Laksamana ordered each one of hia men to select
a youth from among the terrified creatures lying
prostrate before them, and to place the youths in
a group together, with their hands firmly tied
behind them. When this was done, Laksamana
ordered the seizure and tying in the same manner
of the hands of the number of young women he
required. This cruel order was carried out amid
the screams of the victims, and the agonizing
lamentations of parents. And some fathers rose
up to rescue their daughters ; but Laksamana
struck one man down dead, and all the people
remained afterwards subdued to a state oi trem
bling fear, and only gave vent to sobs and moans.
When the prisoners were all secured, then
Laksamana ordered twenty of his men to enter
the houst- of the chief Barangkaya, pointed out
to him. and the houses ot some smaller duels
that had not been burned, and to bring furth all
the treasures that could De found. And they
brought forth girdles of gold, such as are worn
by rich Malays at this day some that weighed
twenty ounces of pure gold; also heavy rings of
gold to wear on their arms, and besides gold iu
coins, of the weight altogether of two piculs or
about two hundred and sixty pounds. And with
the gold they brought some brilliant diamonds
of great value, each one worth a great treasure
in money ; and there were over one hundred ot
these largo diamonds. So the plunder was very
rich, because Pontianak was then a land of gold
and diamonds, as it is at this day.
Laksamana having collected together the pri
soners and the plunder marched to the water side,
to a point where many of the large boats of Pon
tianak were lying at anchor, lie did not want
to delay one minute longer than was necessary,
because he felt that should daylight find them on
the land, the people of the surrounding country
would see how few they were, and would attack
them in overwhelming numbers. Therefore Lakea
mana, by means of small canoes on shore, quickly
had his prisoners and plunder shipped on board
the large war prahus or boats, which he had
seized. He placed nil the maidens in the prahu
under his immediate command, and all the male
prisoners in the other two prahus.
Whilst the wail and lamentation of the people
o' Pontianak still sounded dismally from the
shore, and whilst the flame and smoke of burning
houses could be 6een arising above the unfortu
nate town, Laksamana and his troup of robbers
got up anchor and sailed away.
The terrible chief being weary after bis treat
exertions, lay down on a mat in the middle of
the raliu to rest awhile. Whilst he reposed, the
captain of the prahu, named Kiagoos, and who
was a brave warrior under Laksamana, seized
the body of the most beautiful young woman
among the prisoners, named Manis (which in
Malay means sweet), whose face shone like gold,
and whose beauty was like the glory of the
morning on the mountain top. - Kiagoos clasped
Minis around the waist, and in spite of her
resistance and cries laid her down by tl e
side of the great chief, and bade her caress and
embrace him, threatening to throw her overboard
to the sharks if she refused. Now Kiagoos did
this hoping to please his Lord Laksamana ; and
also hoping that he and the other men of the
prahu would be allowed to have their will with
all the girls on board.
Laksamana roused up at the cries of Mams.
He glanced at the terrified girl by his side, raised
her up, and bade her go back to her place in the
prahu. Then looking sternly at Kiagoos, he
said : " Is not this thy work ? Am I a beast and
shall I worry women like a dog, after 1 have
slain men like a king? Shall we wa6te our
strcngtli like curs, that ought to be kept for the
work of heroes ? Let this girl rest undisturbed,
and let my word go to all the men in the prahu,
that the tir-r man who touches one of these help
less girls a-ainnt her will shall be slain."
When t.'iis ordt.r was declared there was a
roarmur of discontent among the warriors of
Laksamana, because they had expected to have
the privilege, as part of their recompense, to dis
pose of female captives as they pleased ; but such
was their dread of their mighty leader, that no
one dared to speak aloud his vexation, or molest
one of the girls. And so the persons of the
maidens of Pontianak on board the prahu were
respected according to the order of Laksamana.
Now this order ho issned and enforced certainly
not because ho was a pure-minded and good man,
as we tiow understand. But it was so, that on
account of the great love for Umba that filled all
his great and 6avage soul, he could not beur to
witness or countenance any injury to one of her
sex. And this is always the mark of a great man
to respect the person of a woman.
After a few days sail they eamo in sight of the
Island of Nia. As Laksamana approached the
harbor he made signals to indicate bis success,
and as he ncared the land, and was too impatient
to wait lor the anchoring and mooring of the
prahus, he jumped into the sea. When he landed
near Sansuma he was met by King Sapidin and
some of his court with a very sorrowful face.
The King cried out. "The Princess, my daughter,
is lost. She disappeared two days ngo We
have searched the island for her, but alas she is
not to be found anywhere, and I know not her
Laksamana was in a fierce rage on first hearing
these words, thinking that the old King was de
ceiving him, and had given his daughter to an
other chief. But when he saw that all the
people were lamenting for the loss of the Prin
cess Umba he felt oppressed with grief. How
ever, this hero was a man of action, and would
not Btop to weep. Alter enquiring where his
dear lover was last seen, he set out to search the
shore. His remembrance and his love made him
go at once to the cave where he had reposed with
Umba. but which King Sapidin and his people
had not searched.
Laksamana saw at once the tracks of Umba's
feet, near the mouth of the cave. He entered,
and searched within, and saw a tcbarpoo, or
slipper, once worn by the Princess now lying
upon the bed of dry grass, which he had belore
prepared for her. Laksamana felt that she must
have been seized and carried away by force.
As he examined farther he saw the tracks ef
men, which he traced to the beach, and then he
saw marks where boats had landed ; and finding
at the same time a piece of broken gourd that
had been used in baling out the bilge wafer of a
boat, and which was tatooed like tho calabashes
of Sumatra, he felt assured from these signs that
his lover had been carried away by some
ravihers from the opposite coast of Sumatra.
When King Sapidin heard Laksamana's state
ment, he cried out " It is a villain named Jahat
who has carried away my daughter. He wanted
to possess her when she went to Tapanuli, but
she retused him ; and now he has come back for
revenge." Laksamana, oo hearing these worda,
resolved at once to hasten to her rescue. He
ordered one of King Sapidin's swiftest war canoes
and. taking ten rowers, and also ten of his bravest
warriors, he hastened away to the shore of Su
matra, resolved to find Umba and save her, if she
was still alive in this world, or join her in the
spirit land of the xcidadiri.
