i:d n Tin: sim im.un
Di:iti:n. The British steamer Greyhound
of London was captured by Chinese
pirates on Oct. 17th when seventy
miles from Hongkong and about
thirty miles from tho Ladronc
islands, tho historical hunting
grounds of the Kwangtung pirates.
She sailed for Iloikow with a gen
eral cargo, 120 Chinese passengers
and a crew of thirty. Tho following
account is condensed from the China
"While the Chinese crew were at
dinner in the forecastle and the pas
sengers were between decks, a num
ber of Chinese who had been dis
guised as passengers suddenly came
on dcclc and began firing at the
white olllccrs. The latter ran to
ward the saloon amidships, where
their weapons were stored. As they
ran forward they were fired at by
several of the men, and the second
olllcer received no less than seven
bullet wounds, and the chief engi
neer two before he reached the fore
hold, where they took refuge.
The chief otllcer succeeded in
reacliing the cabin below, where he
obtained a revolver. The captain
was less fortunate. Before lie could
reach the chartroom, where his re
volver was, his assailants poured
a volley into him. He was pinned
against the charthousc by one of the
pirates, while another drove a long
knife into his breast. Then they
lifted him up and threw him over
board, and fired at him even after
he was in the water. The second
engineer was forced to come out of
his room and run the engines, a
guard standing over him with a
cocked pistol. Four shots were fired
at the Chinese purser, but he made
his peace with the pirates by hand
ing over a valuable judestone brace
let. The chief officer was requested
to give up the keys of the treasure
chest or he would bo murdered.
The olllcer acceded to this request
and he was put in the fore hold with
the other passengers.
The pirates were now in full pos
session of the ship. Two men with
revolvers kept the bridge and com
pelled the regular quartermasters to
turn the ship about and steer in the
direction of Hongkong. With
the greatest nonchalance they now
and then scanned the horizon with
the Captain's binoculars, and once
when they saw a passing steamer
and some junks they ordered the
Greyhound to be steered away from
them. Sometimes also, although
they did not seem to understand tho
use of the "telegraph," they would
order the engines to be stopped, to
go half-speed and so on, apparently
for sheer devilment. While these
two were thus employed on the
bridge the other members of the
band, which is estimated to have
numbered between thirty and forty,
were ransacking the Captain and
olllccrs' cabins, the saloon and
chartroom, taking everything of
value and easily portable. Money
and jewelry were the most favored
articles. The drawers that wcro
locked were pried open. Tho
treasure, amounting to 2000, was
carried off, and they also had tho
audacity to take away the watches,
bangles and earrings from the pas
sengers, and even rifle them. Tho
only cargo taken was a box of
opium. Altogether the properly
and money taken is valued at 10,
000, a pretty fa"1 haul for a band of
All these articles were collected
together for transhipment, and about
dusk, when the steamer had by this
time made her way back to within
forty miles of Hongkong, and was
quite, near Man-sun, one of the
Ladrones, three junks came along
side in answer to the pirates' signals.
The plunder was then transferred to
tho junks. During the time the
booty was boiiig transferred sonic
of the leading spirits, after
having ordered the engine to be
stopped, went down into the engine
room, ordered all tho steam to bo
blown off, compelled the firemen to
draw tho fires and then removed
sonic of tho most necessary parts of
the engine, rendering tho ship
utterly helpless. Among other
things they took away the lever of
the feed pump and a number of tho
brasses and tl"ow them overboard.
They also slovo in all the four boats,
so ttiat no one could leave the ship.
To complete their work ono of
them proposed that they should set
11 io to the ship. Another, more
merciful, apparently, suggested that
as they had got a good deal of plun
der and the ship was helpless, they
should give tho many unfortunate
people a chance of being picked up
by some passing steamer. It was
noticeable that tho pirates took caro
not to call each other by their proper
names. Nearly all could speak a
little English, and one of the. men,
who was apparently a leader, spoko
Unglish, Poilugucso and Chinese.
Two of tho pirates, Injured by the
promiscuous shooting, wcro taken
off by their comrades.
All llirco junks wcro two-niaslcd
and resembled strongly tho ordinary
type of salt smugglers. The two
with the most booty on board loft
first, and then the junk remaining,
the most heavily armed of the llirco,
followed. Before it did so its occu
pants coolly informed those on the
steamer that if they saw any signs
of smoke from the funnel they would
immediately return and fire in to
her. This threat, however, did not
deter the second engineer and those
under him from at once starting to
provide substitutes for tho missing
parts of the engine and relight tho
fires. A wooden lever for the feed
pump was manufactured within an
hour from tho time the pirates left,
about 8 :30 o'clock in the evening,
and this was very cleverly rigged up
by means of lead ends and wire
ropes and iron bolts to tho engine.
Steam was got up about 12 :30
o'clock and the steamer moved
ahead again for Hongkong.
The murder of Captain Sydor was
indeed pitiful. He was a young
man, having been born in London in
1851, and was about to be mairied,
his bride being expected to arrive
here on tho Gth of next month. A
pathetic incident is told in connec
tion with liis death. His little black
dog, on seeing its master attacked,
made a ucious onslaught on its
master's murderers, one of whom
fired at and hit it three times. All
three shots seemed to have grt"?cd
pff the faithful animal's back.
Tho Mail of October 27th says:
Information lias been obtained which
will probably lead to the capture of
the chief actors in the piracy. A
Chinese mandarin found two of tho
junks which were implicated in the
piracy and which had been beached
in Chinese territory, in the neigh
borhood of Macao. A quantity of
the property pirated was recovered
by the Chinese officials, ami six men,
who have admitted being concerned
in the piracy, wero arrested and
taken to Canton. These men have
been induced to make a clean breast
of the affair, giving the names of all
the men who took a leading part in
the piracy. Two of the chief men,
according to their account, were
Wong Afuk, an old offender, who
committed a deadly assault upon
the late Mr. Tonnochy in Victoria
jail, and Fung Suk Yau, one of the
leading men in the proposed piracy
on the S. S. Bowcn in 1881, and
who was discharged then for want of
evidence to convict him. The names
of several others of the pirates havo
been disclosed, and as the Viceroy
of Kwangtung has offered a reward
of $200 for the capture of each of
the pirates concerned, there is little
doubt that several more of the mis
creants will be brought to justice.
Wc also hear that a further reward
of $200 a head for the arrest of the
Greyhound pirates has been offered
by the Canton authorities.
