THE JOHN ENA.
A Largo and Handsomo Vossol and a
Credit to tmy Flag.
Tho oyos of tlio wholo civilizod
world nro, for tho nouco, coiitorod
on tho little group of islnuds in tho
Pacific, whoso qnoon was rocontly
forced to ahdicato hor throno, and
any itotns of mows relating to tho
island kingdom aro of special intor
ost just now. Tho Royal Hawaiian
Navy consists, or did consist until
recently, of otio small steamer, duh
bod by courtesy a man-of-war, but
hor morcantilo marino is by no
moans a small ono and it will sur
prises many to loam that tho Hawai
ian flag floats over two of tho hand
somest and largest sailing vossols
that ovor plowed bluo wator. They
aro tho Hawaiian Isles and John
Ena. Both wero built in tho United
Kingdom and aro now on thoir
maidon voyages. Tho formor is now
ou tho Sound, whither sho wont
from this port, and tho latter, which
arrived hero on January 81st after a
long and event ful passage of 1GG
days from Cardiff, is discharging
nor cargo of coal at Howard street
wharf, No. 8.
A handsomer vossol than tho John
Ena, oithor as regards hor modol or
hor internal iittiuirs. never ontored
tho Goldon Gato. Siio was built by
Robert Duncan & Co. of Port Glas
gow, Scotland, and is owned by tho
San Francisco Shipping Company.
Hor commandor, Captain Sohnauor,
tho principal stocfdiuldor in tho
compairy, is woll-kuown in this port,
out of which ho has boon sailing for
many years. Ho is very proud of
his ship and truly asserts that sho
is tho strongest and best found vos
sol that ever caino horo. Sho was
built under his personal supervision.
Tho dimensions of tho John Ena
aro: length, 312 feet; beam, -18 foot;
dopth of hold, 28 foot; tonnage, 25(58.
Sho has four masts; six topsail and
six topgallant and three royal yards.
Her spiko bowsprit and all hor yards
and masts, excepting tho topgallant
and royal, aro of steel. Tho three
forward masts measure a little ovor
200 feet from tho water lino to tho
trucks, while tho steel jigger mast,
all one piece, is 184 foot in height.
Tho lower yards measure 102 foot
each and the roal yards aro 56 foot
in length. All tho standing rigging
(both stays and shrouds) is sot up by
screws. Sho has stool decks, ovor
which is laid an ordinary calked pino
deck. Sho carries two tank life
boats aft and a gig and jolly boat
forward. During tho bad weather
the vossol encountered on tho trip
tho port life boat was lifted by a
hea3T soa out of tho chocks and con
siderably damaged. A bridge ex
tends tho wholo length of tho vos
sol from tho poop to tho forecastle
head. Hor waterways are very wido
and hor bulwarks very strongly stay
ed. All tho ironwork about hor is
galvanized. Ono novel feature about
hor is tho way the blocks are arrang
ed through which aro rove tho low
or and topsail braces. Thoy are
fixed on iron standards on tho
rail, ono a little behind tho other, so
that tho braces do not interfere with
each other, and wheji thoy aro lot go
tho blocks aro stationary. Looking
ovor tho ship, commencing forward,
a visitor will notice that tho figure
head is a representation of John
Ena, a prominent Hawaiian, after
whom tho vessel is named. On tho
forecastle head is a crane for getting
the anchors inboard and a doublo
action capstan that can bo worked
either by steam or hand powor. Un
derneath is the forecastle, fitted with
bunks for tho crow, but frot occupied
by thom. Horo is a patent windlass
the machinery of which is run b'
steam direct from the boilor, and a
steam pump for washing decks.
There aro doublo hawso holes, ono
sot for tho chain cable and ono for
mooring lines. As tho anchors are
hove up tho chain passes directly
into the lockors underneath tho
windlass. In different parts of the
ship aro four reels carrying strong
wire ropes for mooring purposes.
Hor hatchways aro very largo and
have high combings. On tho ma n
deck aio three largo steel houses. In
the forward house is tho hospital
which is used asquartorsfor tlio crow
(which consists of tuout' mon before
tho mast), also tho boilor, steam
winch, etc. It is noticeable that tho
engine and everything connected
with it wore made in this city by
Murry Bros, aud shipped to Scot
land to.be placed in tho vessel. Tho
midship hotio is .occupied by the
galley and carpenter's shop and
quarters of the cook and carpenter.
The after house is occupied by tho
boys. Next aft comos tho cabin.
Most of the big four-masters that
como horo have as small cabin ac
commodations as a 500 ton Ameri
can wooden ship, but tho John Ena
is built on a different plan. Hor
cabin extends away forward of tho
jigger mast. Tho front is a solid
buik-head of steel without door
ways, so that no wator can enter,
though tho heaviest seas aro break
ing on board. Access is obtained
through tho chart house on tho poop.
Ou tho poop is another steel house.
In tho forward part of it aro tho
rooms of tho first and second mates.
This is quite an innovation and a
good one, too, for, as tho mato says,
"when wo go below wo aro still on
deck, ready for a call." In tho aftor
tor part of tho house is tho chart
room, flag lockers, meteorological
instruments, etc. A doublo compa
nion -way leads from a hallway be
tween tho oflicors' and chart rooms
to tho spacious cabin. Right aft in
tho stem shoots is a very largo cool
storeroom. Next comes tho dining
room, It measures 17x18 foot, is
furnished in' bird's oyo maple, ma
hogany, oak and teak ami upholster
ed in brown Russian leather. Thn
floor is covered with linoleum and in
tho room aro a stovo and a fine ma
hogany side board, surmounted by a
beveled plato glass mirror. On tho
starboard side of tho dining room
aro tho steward's room ana store
room. Next forward is tho main
saloon, a much larger place than tho
nrivato parlors in tho majority of
liotols, It is fitted aud furnished iu
tho same manner as the dining
room. In the center is a largo ob
jonir tablo and agaiiiHt tho forward
bulkhoud an open fireplace, orna
mented with encaustic t(i0j and suo
mounted by a handsomo gray mot
tlod marblo mautolpiocos. A ma
hogany framo, sot with bovolod mir
rors, surrounds aud hides tho stovo
pipo. Tho saloon ia lightod by largo
light ports as on a stoamor, and by
a largo stool skylight, sot with deco
rated glass, tho sides of which aro
lined with Linorusta Walton, with
pretty offoct. On tho port sidoof
tho saloon aro state roomsj largor
than thoso on ocoan stoamships, and
finely fitted with drawors, lockors,
sottoos, wash basins with salt and
fresh f wator, otc. On tho starboard
side is tho largo private cabin of
It will bo romomborod that tho
causo of tho John Ena's prolongod
passage was that sho oncountorod
very heavy woathor off Capo Horn,
and had a comploto now sot of sails
blown away. Captain Schnauor
aftor battling with tho storms for a
long tiuio dotorminod to turn tail
and como by way of tho Capo of
Good Hopo. Aftor passing tho
Capo, ho had no charts of, or sailing
directions for, tho Southern Indian
ocoan. Ho was not dismayed, how
ever, but gottiug largo shoots of white
blotting papor, ho spread thom on
his chart tablo aud mado a chart,
laying off tho dogroos of latitude
ana lougituao in squares ol hvo ,ao
groos each. Then taking tho loca
tions from his opitonlo, ho marked
on tno auloront hoad lauds and con
tour of tho coast linos of the lands
that wore near his courso. Ho prick
ed off his day's work on this impro
vishod chart from day to day, and
when ho sighted land his position
was just as indicated on it. When
ho got to 1(50 dogroos west longitude
ho had a regular chart of that por
tion of tho globo, and worked by it
to this port.
A magnificent modol of tho vossol,
about sovon feet in length, complete
in every detail, is now on exhibition
in tho assembly room at tho Mer
chants' Exchango,'and thoso who do
notcaro to go-to tho dock and seo
her, as sho now is, enveloped in coal
dust, can see tho modol of tho larg
est vossol flying tho Hawaiian flag,
and ono of tho largest, and probably
without oxcoption, the handsomest
sailing vossol in tho world to-day.
