statement ho kindly vouchsafed:
" There hns boon in force here
at tho Iron Works for many years
past, tho custom of giving tho men
advances. The regular pay day
-was onco in ovory two woeks. Tho
mon would como into tho ollico be
tween times to got money with
which to pay tho Chinese collect
ors for their daily suBtenanco.
With a few mon in tho shops, this
of course, was easy to do.
" Howovor, at the present timo,
thore are something liko four hun
dred mon in tho works and tho
matter of granting advances has
mado all kinds of trouble. Tho
mon would lino up, sometimes
ihreo hundred strong and rush in-
, to tho ollico to tho clork who,
standing at his desk would deal
out the amount dosired by each
man from a pile of silvor dollars
at his Bids. Sometimes the amount
would equal that paid out on a
regular pay day.
"Mistakes woro mado when it
waB sought to straighten out all
-.theso advances and. the manage
ment decided to stop tho practico.
Placards to thut effect wero pub
lished about tho shops.
"Ah wo did not wish to work

wo iuteuded to stop tho practico.
. "A few days ago I recoived a
potition in wuich tho nna asked
that tho practico bo a lowed to

a great hardship on them.
"On Monday, Tuosday and

order of things must go into

thoy would tell tho men of tho de

GETTING HISTORY RIGHT
The Historian of This Morning Hisses
Some of the Facts.
Boat's Crew Not Unheard From and Boat Not
Swamped The Record BoatYoyage
of Dironottar Castle Crew.
An editorial on "Eomarkablo
Voyages" in tho Advortisor has
served to raiso n reminiscont re
volt against eomo of tho state
ments mado therein. The writer
of tho articlo refors to an official
position ho hold horo, whon tho
captain and a portion of tho crow
or tho lost ship JNorval arriveu
here in 1882. A comparison is
drawn botwoon tho voyago of tho
W. If. Starbuck'a boat that ar
rived on tho coast of Hawaii the
othor day and that of tho Norval's
"Owiug to tho BteadinesB of tho
trado winds, the boats of the Star
buck mado 1500 miles in twonty
days. Tho boats of the Norval
made 2000 mites in twouty-one
"Thoro is a siugularcoinidouco
in the incidents of tho two voy
ages. Out of tho four boats that
left tho Norval, ono, commanded
by the mate, disappeared, and
nover was heard from. Another
of tho boats was swamped, and tho
crow transferred. In tho caso of
tho Starbuok, throe boats loft tho
ship. Ono, commanded by the
second mate disappeared, nud will
probably never bo heard from.
Another boat was swamped, and
tho crow transferred to tho only
Now tho Bulletin is assured
ou good authority that tho third
boat of the Norval, commanded by
tho second mate, was very much
heard from. It was picked up and
its occupants rescued by tho ship
Duke of Gounaught. Tho fourth
boat was not swamped, ltoiug a
slow boat its occupants woro
takon into another bout and it was
simply turned adrift. It may be
stated that tho Norval's crow ar
rived at Honolulu on March 2G,
Thoro have been fow tales of
privation iu open boats to exceed
that of tho voyago of tho Duu
nottar Castle's crew from Ocoan
Island to Honolulu in 188i. Tho
newspapers left absolutely noth
ing of tho details to bo sought for
later by historians. Tboso ship
wrecked mariners wero forty ono
davs tossed about on tho wavos,
and wero reduced to half a gill of
water and half a biscuit a day. It
is believed to have hum the long
est voyago of tdiipwreoked per
sous iu au opon boat with the ex
ecution of that uiadii by tho
mutineers of tho Bouuty.
A subscriber calli attention to
tho fact that tho oiow of tho Star
buok aailcd 2U00 mites iustoad of
1500 as stated by tho Advortisor.
Tho wrook occurred in almost
exactly tho same longitudo nnd
latitude as tho Norval.
