A Queer Capture
Copyright, 1005, by T. C. McCluro.
In tho year 1884 tho British survey
Btonmcr Comet left Bombay to resur-
vey tho Mnldlvo lslnnds.
Tho Comet had shipped ten new men
beforo starting out, all half castes nnd,
as nnnenred nter on. members or a
secret baud that had sworn vengcanco
on anything llrltlsh. These men mu
tinied nnd, having got possession of
tho brig, ran her Into Shark bny, on
the northernmost Island. Tho f aptnln
nnd other officers -wcro sot afloat on a
raft, unprovided with sail, water or
provisions, and no doubt they perUhed
In tho storm that swept over tho wa
ters next day. '
Tho lender of tiio half castes was a
mnu known as Dondra. IIo was a
sailor by occupation and probably as
great a ruffian as could bo found In all
India. When a start was made from
Shark harbor a courso was laid for
Ceylon, and during a voyngo lasting
four weeks the Comet captured seven
coasting vessels. In each nnd every
case tho crows wero put to death, tho
cargoes transshipped and tho craft
It was piracy after the old style, ex
cept that tho brig did not daro at
tack larger vessels. Her acts finally
reached tho cars of tho authorities, nnd
men-of-war started from Bombay and
Calcutta to overhaul her.
After sailing part of tho way up tho
coast of Ceylon tho Comet put about,
and sho was halfway back to her har
bor of rcfugo when tho Serpent (man-
of-war) sighted her. It was during a
heavy gale, and nothing could bo done
but chaso. It was three days beforo
tho Serpent fired a, gun. Just n even
ing was coming on 011 the third dny
and after tho mutineers had refused to
surrender sho crept up and fired a
broadside Into the brig and sent her
to tho bottom. It was supposed at
tho tlmo that everybody aboard was
drowned, but two months later news
reached Bombay that Doudrn nuo four
other half castes had got awny In n
boat nnd reached an island at tho
mouth of tho gulf of Mnunnr. A gun
boat was sent down to muka an In
vestigation and a reward of 2,000
offered for tho flvo men.
In the month of September of the
year mentioned the bark Southland,
bound from Liverpool to Bombuy, was
making her way up tho Malabar coast
under light breezes. One night In tho
mlddlo watch It fell a dead calm, and
this stato of weather continued nil
next day and night At midnight on
the second night tho officer of tho deck
heard faint shouting and sluglnj to
tho east, nnd ns no vessel had been
sighted In that direction bo was mys
tified. As tho noises continued the
mato nwoko the captain, and It was
flnully decided that thero wero men
afloat in a small boat u milo or so
away. Vo burned a flaro to guldo
them and heard shouts In reply, but
it was two hours before a yawl crept
up to us out of the darkness. Tho lit
tle craft contained five half casto Hin
doos, and they wero suffering terribly
for tho want of food nnd water. Thero
was but ono oar and no sail.
Tho story told by tho men, all of
whom spoko English fairly well, was
that they were port of tho crow of a
coaster named tho Emerald and while
she was making her way up tho gulf
of Manaar she had been struck by a
squall and turned turtle.' They( had
clung to her bottom for several hours,
but had finally managed to loosen tho
boat and drift out to sea. They claim
ed to havo been afloat for three days.
We had no room to stow their boat,
and it was cast adrift, but not before
we bad seen tbat her namo had been
When questioned separately tho sto
ries of tho men did not agree, but as
wo had beard nothing about tho pirates
wo could not mako out what the fel
lows had been up to. Their leader was
an Impudent swaggerer, who would
not promise to do any work In return
for bis passago to Bombay, and hef had
not been aboard two dayB when tho
paptnln ordered him into irons. This
action sobered' blm up, and' presently
he was ob humble as you pleaso and
begging for his release. When restored
to liberty' ho was zealous in his duty,
and all suspicions on our part would
havo been lulled but for a discovery
mado by ono of tho apprentices who
understood tho Hindoo language.
Thinking themselves alono In tho
forecastlo ono afternoon, tho strangers
plotted to tako the ship, and tho lad
overheard every word nnd carried tho
news to tho captain. IIo passed word
to tho crew, and of a sudden tho Hin
doos wcro fallen upon and mado pris
oners. Not three hours later tho gunboat
from Bombay boarded us to give us tho
news about tho pirates nnd ttsk that we
keep our eyes open for them. Great
was the surprise of her commander to
find that wo had prisoners aboard who
answered to tho description of those ho
Tlio Hindoos saw that the game was
up, and ono of them mado a confession.
Their leader was Dondra himself, and
they had been biding on an Island In
tho gulf. Learning that their where
abouts was known, they had put oft tu
sea In a panic and In a boat stolen from
nnother vessel. Two of their number
bad been stabbed to death during 11
quarrel and their bodies thrown over
board. Tho flvo survivors Intended to
fall upon our crow of eleven men and
murder us all.
Of courso the men wero surrendered
to tho gunboat, and upon being taken
to Bombay proof sufficient to bang
them was easily obtained, and within
threo months of their boarding us In
mldoccan they wore dnngllng at the
endG of hangman's ropes. Wo had dono
little or nothing to bring about their
capture, but (ho government of India
paid us tho reward nnd added Its
thanks to tho money, M. QUAD.

suggested, with the accompaniment
of native hulas, in a native village
in Hawaiian style, and, presumably
wilh the traditional "pretty smiles"
should prove alluring. '
