PRESENTATION AND BANQUET TO
GAPT. H. M. HAYWARD,
S. S. MARIPOSA.
f 'Correspondence of the Bulletin. J
San Fi'.axcisco, Dec. lGlli,
The Directors of the Oceanic
Steamship Company issued invita
tions to dinner on board the Mari
posa for the evening of December
15th, and a distinguished couiimny
assembled in the spacious saloon of
that vessel at the hour appointed.
The guests were invited to be pre
sent at the presentation of a valua
ble piece of plate to Captain II. M.
Hayward by the British Govern
ment, in recognition of his humane
and courageous act in rescuing the
crew and passengers of the Uritish
bark Henry James, who were cast
awaj' on l?almyra Island, a low coral
bank a few degrees south of tho
line, and.one-of the outlying islets
of the Samoan group. The particu
lars of the disaster and the rescue
of the shipwrecked people by Cnpt
Hayward have been recorded in the
The facts having been reported to
the Board of Trade by the British
Consul at San Francisco, Her Ma
jesty's Government resolved to
mark its high appreciation of the
act by making suitable presents to
Captain Hayward, Chief Oillcer
Hart and the seamen employed in
the arduous task of dragging a
heavy boat miles across coral shoals
in the work of rescue.
The gift to Uapt. Hayward was a
richly chased silver punch bowl,
twelve inches in diameter, having
the following inscription on a polish
ed oval space :
".Presented by the British Gov--'cfnment
to Capt. II. M. Hayward,
master of tho American ship Mari
posa, of San Francisco, in acknow
ledgment of his humanity and kind
ness to the shipwrecked crew of the
barque Henry James, of Glasgow,
which was wrecked off Palmyra
Island, on tho 10th of April, 1888."
JohnD. Sprcckels, Esq., Presi
dent of the Oceanic Steamship Csm
pany, presided at the banquet,
which would have done credit to the
best hotel in San Francisco. After
dinner, Mr. E. B. Jerome, deputy
Collector of Customs, (in the un
avoidable absence of Collector Ha
ger), made the presentation in a
neat, and appropriate speech, in
' wliich he narrated the facts. The
presentation had been made by the
British Government through the De
partment of Stale, to add dignity to
it. He trusted that Capt. Hayward
would live long in the conscious en
joyment of having done a noble and
meritorious act, which had been
signally recognized by the two
greatest and most enlightened na
tions of earth, the United States
arid Great Britain. This presenta
tion was an honor conferred upon
tho American mercantile marine.
He hoped that it might bo fo re
garded, and that should occasion
arise it would stimulate others to
emulate the courageous conduct of
Capt. Hayward, who did not let
considerations of prudenco alone in
fluence him. Ho had charge of a
. valuable ship and cargo and was
trusted with its care and the lives of
' the passengers and crew. The ship
'he commanded also carried the
British mail under contract to bo
delivered at San Francisco at a
given date. It was a great responsi
bility therefore to change tho course
- of his ship, but Capt Hayward took
it, obeying the higher law of hu
manity and rescued oneseore and
five fellow beings who otherwiso
might have perished misurabry. Tho
risk which Captain Hayward took in
changing his course under the cir
cumstances proved Captain Hay
ward to bo a man of tho greatest
moral courage aud tho strongest hu
-: : 'rffr Wirin n , , rmmmmmni &
Deputy Collector Jerome then
presented Chief Officer Hart with a
valuable gold medal bearing a suit
able inscription j also silver medals
and 2 in coin to each of tho four
seamen of tho Mariposa who parti
cipated in tho rescue, nccompanying
each gift with u few wcll-clioscn
words of commendation.
Capt. Hayward, in reply to the
toast of his health, took occasion
to disclaim for himself any special
merit in the rescue of the passen
gers and crew of the Henry James.
Tho prime factor in such a case is
that a ship's captain should know
his employers. It did not take long
for him to make up his mind what
to do when he received Lieutenant
Cressup's letter, lie asked him
self what Mr. Sprockets would do if
he wore on hoard. IIo knew that
Mr. Sprcckels would say at once,
"go and rescue these people;" and
feeling that his conduct would bo
approved bv his employers, he did
not hesitate one moment, but shaped
his course to Palmyra Island and
was fortunate in rescuing these peo
ple from their trying and almost
desperate situation. The credit
therefore really belonged to Mr.
Sprcckels, who said when the facts
were reported to him, "you did
quite right." It was encourage
ment of this kind by others that
enabled commanders of ships to
perform meritorious acts in the
cause of humanity. For himself,
he made no claim to special- merit.
He had simply done his duty to his
fellowmen, in the fullest confidence
that his conduct would bo endorsed
by his employers.
Mr. Chas. Mason, II. B. M.'s
Vice-Consul, on behalf of the British
Government paid a high compli
ment to Captain Hayward, aud said
that the conduct of Mr. Sprcckels
in this affair had been highly ap
preciated by the British Government.
Instead of making a claim for payment
for the rescue, passages and main
tenance of these people he had re
fused to receive any consideration
whatever for the very valuable ser
vices rendered, and the expenditure
incurred in tho maintenance and
transportation of the shipwrecked
crew and passengers of the British
bark Henry James. Thai was a
very liberal and generous act, and
it was highly appreciated by tho
British Government, who would
have been pleased to pay any charge
that might have been made for it.
This illustrated the liberal, manly,
and enlightened policy of the
Oceanic Steamship Company, which
was identified with the commercial
development of important British
Colonies in the South Pacific as con
tractors for the transportation of the
Australian and New Zealand mail.
He trusted that the bonds of friend
ship thus established might be
strengthened in the future.
Chief Mate Hart made a brief ac
knowledgment of the compliment
paid him in the toast of his health.
This is the third medal awarded
him by the Britisli Government in
assisting to save life at sea.
Several toasts were proposed and
responded to. Among the speakers
were Hon. Wm. G. Irwin, Hono
lulu; JohnD. Sprcckels, President
of the Oceanic S. S. Company ;
Director Collins, S. Shortbridge, Re
publican elector ; Mayor Pond, and
Robt. J. Crcightou, Agent for New
Zealand Government, who said that
tho- contracting colonics cordially
npproved of Captain Hayward's
humane act in rescuing twenty-five
Britisli people, cast away on a bar
ren islet in an unfrequented part of
the Pacific Ocean. Doubtless Cap
tain Hayward had assumed serious
responsibility in changing his voyage
under a postal contract with foreign
governments, but the result justified
his action. If there had been a
delay in delivering the mail, under
the circumstances no penalty would
have been imposed ; but this con
tingency did not arise. The good
ship Mariposa went a long way out
of her course and rescued these
people, and arrived in San Fran
cisco on time.
After spending a most enjoyable
evening, the guests took their leave
of Captain Hayward, agreeably im
pressed with tho hospitality of the
President and Directors of the
Oceanic Steamship Company.
A SAD ACCIDENT.
It is with much regret we an
nounce the death of Charles, eldest
son of Rev. W. B. Oleson, Principal
of the Kamchamcha School, which
took placo Tuesday evening, from
the results of an accident. Early
that morning the little fellow who is
12 years of age, went to the Prepa
ratory school to distribute presents
among the pupils. A short time
after, one of tho teachers discovered
him sitting on a chair holding his
leg up, and a pool of blood on the
floor. Upon examination it was
found Hint the artery just below the
knee had been cut right off, and a
largo piece of glass remained in tho
wound. Dr. J. S. McGrew was at
once summoned and arrived quickly,
but was unable to do anything on
account of the great loss of blood.
The poor boy died at half past fivo
o'clock in tho evening. No one saw
the accident happen, but there is no
doubt tho little fellow walked right
into a glass door which he was un
able to sec owing to it being lather
dnik at tho time. Tho sad alfair cast
quite a gloom over the institution, Mr.
and fllrs. Oleson and family have
tho heartfelt sympathy of tho enliro
community in their sad loss. The
funeral took place this afternoon at
'clock from the family resi-
dencc at the school.
It will be remembered that the
recont performance of selections
from the opera of Patience by ama
teurs, was very successful. This was
due to tho persistent and well-directed
efforts of Lieut. 15. R. Pears
of II. B. M. S. Cormorant. In or
der to show sonic appreciation of
his valuable services, those who took
part in the performance decided lo
present him with a small token, as a
souvenir of the occasion. This took
the form of a polished kou calabash
mounted on boars' tusks, tipped
with silver. On one side of tho
calabash was a small silver plato with
the inscription "Patience, Honolulu,
1888," while on the other was the
monogram, E. P. R. Accompany
ing the gift was an engrossed ad
dress as follows :
The undersigned members of Mr.
Pears' Amateur Operatic Company
request that he accept the accom
panying small token of their appre
ciation of his kind help and valued
management in connection with
their recent performance of portions
of the opera of Patience as a sou
venir of tho occasion which they
will alway remember with pleasure.
