WRECK OF THE NETTIE MERRILL.
A TOTAL LOSS.
The steamer C. R. Bishop, which
arrived this morning from Kauai,
brought ihc news of tho wreck of
tho schooner Ncttio Merrill, belong
ing to the Inter-Island Steam Navi
gation Co. Tho Nettie was at Wai
mca, Kauai, Saturday. She made
fast to the buoy with a big new
hawser and had one anchor down.
Tho sea was running high, and the
schooner's skylight, aftcr-lialch and
gallcj' wore swept overboard. Con
siderable water was getting into the
vessel through the openings made
by the sea. At 9 o'clock Saturday
night there was no wind, but the
sea was still heavy. Captain Crane,
who was doing his utmost to enable
the schooner to rido in safety, sud
denly noticed that the Nettie was
drifting, and before ho could let go
the other anchor tho vessel bumped
on the reef ; rose on a sea, moved
forward, bumped again and
and was landed a completo

Wandering Minstrel, seeing tho
schooner taking in water and believ
ing that if she foundered all would
be lost, cut the hawser, and the
anchor cable parting, tho schooner
drifted on to the reef. Captain
Crane was not apprised of tho out
ting until after the wreck, when the
darkey told him. When tho Nettie
struck, the crew deserted, leaving
tho captain alone. Captain Crane
stood by the schooner to the last,
and was numb with cold and well
nigh exhausted when rescued by
Mr. Brook Smith, head luna of Wai
mea, and a native woman. The
schooner had been carried to the
highest point on the beach, and at
3 o'clock Sunday morning she lay
high and dry in pieces on the sand.
Messrs. Gay and Robinson and the
Waimea Plantation sent men to save
wliat they could. Nearly all the
schooner's freight, which consisted
chiefly of house material shipped by
Mr. Geo. Lucas, was saved, but the
schooner was damaged beyond re
demption. She was valued at $10,-
000 and was not insured outside of
the I. I. S. N. Co.

COLONEL MACFARLANE'S AS
SURANCES TO A "BULLETIN"
REPORTER THAT MAT1IE
SONS HAVE ACCEPTED THE
COl'IUS OK COLONKIi MAOI'ARIjANK'S
AND MR. WILLIAM WILIJER'S CAI1LK
Much interested was manifested
by our community on tho arrival of
the Australia, for news from Lon
don regarding tho probable success
of the three important Hawaiian
schemes, expected to bo placed on
the London market ; viz: the Hono
lulu Street Railroad, the Ililo Rail
road, and Dillingham's Coloniza
tion Scheme, but whicli were await
ing the arrival and delivery of the
National Bonds before any attempt
would be made to induce English
capitalists to invest further in Ha
Our reporter has been busily en
gaged the past two days in getting
at the facts for publication, and in
answer to many enquiries from sub
scribers, can now give substantially
the news in brief, which has been
obtained from the paities most
The impression seemed to have
spread last Wednesday that Wilder
and Dillingham had received dis
couraging news, and that only the
Street Railroad was likely to go
through, but news on the whole very
favorable has been received.
First, as to the Street Railroad,
Mr. Mncfarlanc says this is actually
"au fait accompli." The rails at
last advices were being rolled and
all material preparing for shipment
by February vessel. Every effort
is being made to complete at
least six miles by September, and
Messrs. Fowler & Co. naye sent
him full instructions to push ahead
with all the details, they having
taken hold of the enterprise in full
earnest. Mr. Armstrong writes to
Col. Macfarlanc that the company
has been formed by private sub
scription, and its shares will soon
be placed on the London Market
under a syndicate guarantee.
Second : Mr. Wilder's Ililo Rail
road is an assured fact, as Col. Mac
farlane's cable message would seem
to indicate ; it reads :
London, Jan. 30,
11.5G A. M.
" Macfarlane, Honolulu,
Wilder's Railroad accepted Ma
Mr: William Wilder's cable of
same date, reads,
London, Jan. 30.
8.-15 A. M.
These messages seem to be con
tradictory, but Mr. Wilder now
agrees with the following explana
tion of Colonel Macfarlanc's, viz.,
That Mr. Wilder's cable was des
patched early in the da', to
catch the Australia, it having
been sent before business hours,
while Mr. Armstrong who risked a
close connection withthe Australia,
forwarded his cable three hours
later, 11 :5G a. m. must have cabled
the result of a- meeting held that
day, with Mathcsons, and Skinner
& Co. Mr. Wilder knowing that
Mr. Armstrong had cabled the result
to Col. Macfarlane did not think it
necessary, to report it to his brother
Col. Macfarlane says his message
admits of no ambiguity, and is de
finitely expressed. In answor to our
reporter's enquiry, as to whether the
message means that the. Bonds of
Wilder's railroad had actually been
floated, Mr. Macfarlauo replied
"No" it means that the scheme has
been accepted by Mathesons for
syndicating purposes, and there is
no fear, but what a syndicate w"s
already formed beforo Mathesons
accepted the terms this is tho usual
custom. As for the floating of tho
Bonds, this is virtually settled when
a bynuicato iatuerca y Matiie-t
sons accept a scheme, as in'
tho event of the public not ."catch
ing on," 'or subscribing for tho
bonds or shares, the syndicate have
to take them aud furnish tho money
to the Issuing House. It was this
that took Mr. Wilder and myself so
long to beat into tho heads of some
ot our astute Hawaiian financiers
and would-be statesmen, who
thought all London was crazy to
subscribe for Hawaiian Bonds.."
"Have tho National Bonds been
delivered to tho London Stock Ex
change?" queried our reporter
"Yes, by tliis time. My latest
letter from Mr. Armstrong, date,d
January Mth, says, the Bonds hud
arrived that day, and would bo dci
livered in two or threo days, nfter
being stamped aud recorded at

New York, Jan. 21. The rights
in a German invention for subduing
the waves with oil have been pur
chased by an officer of tho Nortli
German Lloyd line. This consists
of u rocket, to whicli is attached a
cylinder filled with oil. The rocket
can be fired with accuracy, and when
it explodes the oil is scattered just
where it is wanted. Several inter
esting experiments weic made be
tween Bremen mid New York. In
one tho rocket was fired to a dibtanco
of 1,000 feet, and also at greater
aud less distances. By the explo
sion of five rockets at n distance of
from 1,200 to 1,500 fret from the
ship, a space of 1,500 to 2,000
square feet of water was covered
with oil aud tho waves were at once
smoothed. Tho rocket was fired 900
feet against a gale. The importance
of the invention to deep-water
sailors consists in the coitainty of
explosion of the rocket at a sufficient
distance to leave tho vessel in calm
water during a gale. fS. F. Bulletin.
THE PENSION BILL.
New York, Jan. 21. Tho Post's
Washington special reports:
The members of the Grand
Committee now in Washington, in
reference to pension legislation, are
reported as saying that the Presi
dent would probably be glad to ap
prove the pension bill, provided the
features which he objected to last
year are omitted. The Committee
men say that Cleveland, at an inter
view with Rea, said that ho believed
that every soldier who incurretl dis
ability while in service, and who is
now disabled, ought to bo pension
ed. "What we want," said Major
Merrill of the committee, "is to get
a law which will enable eleven thou
sand or more old soldiers to have
pensions, who on account of the
death of medical aud military offi
cers are not legally able to prove
that their disability originated in
