The Marion Chilcott, once in the
Mntsoti fleet, plying between I Mo
and San Francisco, but now running
as an oil ship to Honolulu, encoun
tered a storm on her last trip down
that swept away thiee of her crew
and almost wrecked the vessel,
The captain's story as related in the
Advertiser is as follows:
"We left San Francisco on Sep
tember 10th, ten o'clock at night,
and the same night, before we had
hardly got past the lighthouse, we
ran right into the gale," said Cap
tain Williams of the Marion Chil
cott yqsterday afternoon. "We had
laid around the lightship from ten
in the night until two o'clock the
next morning. There wasn't a
bteath of wind when suddenly we
ran into the gale. It was a clear
night, although not moonlight. A
, heavy sea was running and we were
shipping water right along on the
decks. I kept the ship before the
wind and we ran dead before the
1 "yc werc hauling on the braces
i and I was at work with the men
when I saw the sea coming. I
yelled 'look out,' but none of us
was prepared for the sea that swept
over us. we werc naming on me
port forebrace, and three of my men
were washed overboard and lost.
Two men and the mate were also
washed overboard, but they hung
on to the braces while I kept hold
of the sheets. One of the men
'must have been hanging on over
the side fully four or five minutes
before he was pulled in. We were
filled way up by the sea. The man
at the wheel said he thought there
must have been two heavy seas
breaking over us in quick succes
sion. The sea began to break just
at the fore mizzen rigging and then
swept all over us.
Il'l'lirk (limn i.imi it'lin 4tnrr Inct
were never seen afterwards. They
disappeared completely in the sea
that broke over us, and it is a won
der that all of us were not carried
away. We must have been going
twelve knots an hour, and with the
wind and sea we could neither see
or hear a thing of the others.
"At daylight we began pouring
oil on the water and that seemed to
do some good. We used about
lour barrels of oil and though the
sea was so heavy as to be continu
ally breaking over us anyway, the
oil seemed to help a good deal.
'The gale drove us right down
the coast and we were almost
abreast of San Diego before getting
out of the storm. Then we were
so crippled that things looked pretty
bad. About two days afterwards
I got up steam and bent up new
sails to take the place of those
washed away. A mainsail, fore
mizzen top gallant sail, maintop
staysail were carried away, starting
the can on the fore ton mast. The
gale bent the supporters and out
riggers and carried away the bolts,
and also carried away the main
gallant stay. A boat which was
lashed on the top of the main hatch
was smashed to pieces, the hatch
bars broken and the tarpaulin
washed away. The water was on
the deck only and very little got
"The first mate, Albert Brown,'
was also hurt and I am limping a
little myself. Brown sustained a
fracture ot a small bone in the
ankle, I think. Another seaman,
Smith, also had his leg hurt. We
had two crippled besides the mate,
and with the three men lost over
board, you see we were pretty short-
handed. There were seventeen all
told, of whom ten were able sea
men. Six men are not very many
to handle a ship like the Chilcott,
let me tell you. We couldn't get
our sails set until a couple of days
after the storm, because of the sea,
but we made pretty good time any
way, coming down in fourteen days,
A cargo of oil is not the same as a
cargo of general merchandise. It
makes the ship too stiff, she don't
give to the sea, and it is hard on
the rigging. The first mate was
pretty badly crippled, but he took
the ship just outside of Diamond
Head and steered her in.
"I have been on the sea for
thirty-four years," concluded Cap
tain Williams, "and this is the first
time I have ever lost a man or had
a man hurt."
The Marion Chilcott will begin
discharging her cargo today. She
has 672,000 gallons of oil aboard.
The injured seaman may be scut
to the hospital today. Captain
Williams will report to the customs
officials and shipping commissioner
the first thing this morning. The
effects of the three deceased men
will be turned over to Shipping
Commissioner Holt. The three
men who werc washed overboard
had shipped with Captain Williams
only the day before sailing and little
is known of them.

Mow It litis
Sixty years aco the world of
horsemen were excited over an tin
precedented exhibition of speed by
a horse named Lady Suffolk, which
trotted a mile in 2:28. From that
time a greater interest was aroused
in the speed ring and the records of
the track have been coming down.
The latest and lowest being a mile
in 2 minutes flat, the wonderful
performance of Iou Dillon, at Read
ville, Mass., a couple of weeks ago.
The evolution of the trotter's speed
stands as follows:
Lady Suffolk 1844 2:28
Highland Maid 1853 2:27
Flora Temple 1859 2:19
Dexter 1867 2:17
Goldsmith Maid 1874 2:14
Rarus 1878 2:13
Saint Julien 1880 2:1 1
MaudS 1881 2:10
Jay-Kyc-See 1884 2:10
MaudS 1885 2:o8
Sunol 1891 2:oS
Nancy Hanks 1892 2:04
Alix 1894 2:03
The Abbot 1901 2:03
Crescens..- 1901 2:02
Lou Dillon 1903 2:00
The question now in the minds
of all who give the matter any
thought is, will there ever be a
horse produced that can go a mile
in less than two minutes? There is
good reason to believe that this will
be accomplished. Everything else
is still on the upward trend; pro
gress has never yet been blocked in
any of the great undertakings, and
the breeding and training of horses
has surely not reached its zenith.
The prediction has been made by
some authorities that Lou Dillon,
herself, will eclipse her late achieve
ment ere her best days are over.

ValueH In Honolulu Have Mumped
Honolulu, Sept. 26. The values
of Houolt'lu real estate and the
amount of depreciation that has
taken place in the past two or three
years constituted the chief issue in
a case tried this morning before
Judge Do Bolt, in which II. W.
Schmidt attempted to stop confir
mation of a sale of real estate on
Bcrctania street on which the Luna
lilo estate foreclosed. The mort
gage was for $35,000, but the prop
erty was knocked down to the es
tate for $10,000 less.
W. O. Smith, one of the trustees
of the estate, testified that the prop
erty was valued by the trustees at
$45,000 in 1898, when the money
was loaned. There were outside
circumstances which induced the
trustees to loan $35,000 on it. He
didn't think there was any chance
to get more than $25,000 if the sale
was ordered over again. The de
preciation in property values had
been beyond the expectations of all,
said the witness.
An affidavit of W. M. Mintou
was filed, stating that the property
was worth $40,000, but that there
was no chance to get more than
$25,000 for it at this time in a cash
sale. Smith said that as a trustee
of the Lunalilo estate he would like
to see the estate "get its $35,000
loaned, but that it had been decided
to take the loss of $10,000 and wait
to make it up.
Judge De Bolt made an order
confirming the sale and allowing
