THE JAVA DISASTER.
Boston, December 7. The hark
William II. Ucssc ami tho ship
Analniac arrived this morning, the
former from Manila ami the latter
from Calcutta. Tho Bcsse had a
voyago of 195 and the Anahuac J 3!)
days. Captain Baker of the Bcsse
says his bark was directly in the
vicinity of Anjcr, Java, at the time
of the terrible disaster which killed
thousands and changed the face of
laud in and around Sunda straits.
He left Batavia on August lGth,
and on the following morning at
daylight those on deck noticed a
heavy bank of clouds rising from the
west and obscuring the sun. At the
same time the barometer dropped to
29.40 and again suddenly rose to
30 70. All hands were calledand
sail was taken off as fast as possible.
Heavy showers of sand and ashes
then commenced falling, completely
covering the decks, masts and spais
to a depth of several inches. By
noon it hud grown darker than the
darkest nichl and begun to blow a
hurricane, but, strange to say, tho
sea remained perfectly smooth. Heavy
rumblings, like distant thunder,
wcro continually heard, and at in
tervals the sky was lighted up by
lightning flashes. A strong smell of
Bulphur permeated the atmosphere
and made it difficult to breathe. All
hands were affected by this awful
scene, and many of the sailors
thought the world was coming to an
end. Throughout tho gale the tide
set strongly to the westward and the
bark drove through the water at the
rate of fourteen knots an hour. At
S. p.m. the sky commenced to grow
lighter, but the ashes continued to
fall like snow.
On the following day the baik
entered the straits of Sunda and the
extent of damage done was plainly
to be seen. Whole islands had sunk
and those that remained had changed
in form. The north western part of
Krakatia island had disappeared and
Verelatin and Lang islands, hereto
fore covered with trees, were com
pletely bare. The sailors saw a very
large number of dead bodies. The
water for miles was covered with
trees and corpses. The sea for COO
miles was a field of lava. They ex
perienced a hurricane from the
north-northeast, with a tremendous
sea, which lasted three days. Dur
ing this time the decks and cabin
were flooded with water and a por
tion of the bulwarks and everything
moveable on dock was washed away.
"The most fearful thing of all,."
said the Captain, "was the sea of
corpses. For nearly three days wc
came across body after body of
persons who had lost their lives in
the earthquake. One man counted
sixty in plain sight at once. Thou
sands must have perished." S. JT.
OPPOSITION TO PROHIBITION.
"Yes," said the Widow Flapjack,
who is chief executive ofllcer of an
Austin boarding house, "yes, I must
say I am very much opposed to
prohibition and closing up the sa
loons, and all that sort of tiling. It's
all a base scheme against the best
interests of the hotel keepers Mid
'Why, I am surprised to hear you
express such unchristian sentiments,
and you a church member, too.
How do you make out that pro
hibition is against the interest of the
"If prohibition goes into effect all
the saloons will lie closed up and
then all the free lunches will stop.
Now, I've noticed that among my
young men boarders the dissipated
ones arc the most profitable. Before
they come to dinner they always step
into the' buloonnnd get a sour beer or
n schooner of toddy, or something of
that kind, and they fill up on the
free lunch, and when they come to
tho dinner table they don't eat hardly
anything, while the steady young
men who never drink just gorge
themselves. 0, my, you ought to
see 'cm eat! They jti6t tako tho
profits off, and if it wasn't for tho
free lunches and the "next morning"
feeling that &omo of tho borders
Buffer from occasionally I don't know
what we poor landladies would do.
Thero'd be no prolit in the buwincss.
Yes, I am opposed to prohibition for
purely economical reasons."
And the Widow Flapjack sighed,
mvl went out and gave orders to cut
the pies into &oven pieces instead
