II Queen Street,
Seattle, June 17. One of tho strang
est nud most successful hoaxes en
record hn lately been exposed through
n report made to the hydrogrnphie
omce nt Washington by Captnln Bil
ford, of the transport Grant, an nrmy
vessel plying between San Francisco,
Honolulu nnd Manila. As a icsult of
the reports received by the hydro
gruphlc ofllce, It has been decided that
Morrell nnd Ber Islands, named titter
Captain Morrell and his mate, who
"discovered" them In the whallui;
schooner Tartar, neter had any exist
tencc, but were Simply reported by the
cnptnln and mate ns a means of
achieving the distinction of having
their names on the charts nnd mnps ot
the Pucltlc ocean. Since 1825 the two
Islands have been charted, and naviga
tors and students of geography all thn
world over have accepted Captain Mor
rcll's report that they were where he
stated that he had found them.
Cnpt. Morrell reported the Islands to
bo In north latitude 29 degrees nnd B")
minutes, cast longitude 174 degrees, 31
minutes. He gave detailed descrip
tions ot the Islands, which wero duly
put on record, and government charts
were corrected accordingly. Tho whaler
slated In his report thnt he had taken
possession In the nnme of the United
Stntes, and It was at his request that
they were named Morrell nnd Byer, "In
honor of the captain nnd mate. It now
appears thnt the report was all a Joke.
The captain and mate went through
life without ever giving It nwny. If .t
was, while essel after whscI In cross
ing the Pacific kept careful lookout for
the two little Islands that had no exist
ence. Captain Morrell nnd Slate Hycr car
ried with them to the grave the know-
ledge thnt the got eminent had charted
Islands that were only a dream. Since
1825 these islands linvc never been
sighted If they were slgstcd then.
Mnny steamers hate passed near the
locality, but none of them were able
to sco the land, which. Captain Morrell
reported, was very low, scarcely rising
out of the water.
Three or four years ago Captnln
Green of Honolulu, in the tntcr-lsland
steamer Walnlcale, made 11 trip to the
vicinity of the supposed Morrell Island,
and returned with a report that the Isl
ands had disappeared. He made known
the results of his observations nt
Washington, where a similar repoit
from the gunboat Peacock had already
been received. The Peacock, In 1810,
hnd been unable to And the Islands.
Morrell and Byer Islands were still
Liverpool i kept on the charts, however, and mnrl-
Nflw York ners still looked out for them. Thoso
Interested wondered If tho Islands
could have been of volcanic origin, and
If the land had suddenly disappeared.
The ocean In the vicinity of the report
ed Islands has many coral Islands, how
ever, nnd It was thought that Morrell
nnd Byer must be of the same Kind.
Charts remained unaltered, and Cap
tain Morrell's gieat hoax lasted on.
The war with Spain and tho annexa
tion of Hawaii biought the end of tho
International Joke. Travel across the
Pacific from San Francisco to Hono
lulu nnd Manila was Middenly doubled
nnd trrblcd, and quite a number of tlu
steamers that took the direct route to
Manila, without stopping nt Honolulu,
passed near where Morrell Ulnnd ought
to have been, but there Is no log In
existence, barring that of the whaling
schooner Tartar, In which n call at
Morrell Island Is mentioned.
Last February Capt. Iluford of tho
army transport Grant, decided to set
tle the matter on his return trip from
Manila to San Francisco. Ho headed
straight for Morrell Island. On Feb
ruary 23 he reached tho locality where
It was on the chart. There was no
land In sight. Captain Ruford stejred
lila ship directly on toward tho spot
f where his charts showed Morrell Isl-
nnd to be.
It was n clear day, and tho lookout
could have detected land anywhere
within a radius ot twenty-live miles.
No land was seen. Tho big transport
steamed right over Captain Morrill's
hit of territory and the wnter did not
grow even shallow. This settled the
At tho beginning of the year n des
patch was lecelved from Washington
stntlng that the United States tug Iro
quois, which Is permanently stationed
at Honolulu, wns to be sent from there
to look over Morrell Island, mnko
soundings and ascertain whether them
was any Island. The report from tho
transport Grant seems to have satisfied
the authorities that further search was
unnecessary, however. Tho Iroquois
hns mada no search and has been given
other work to do, nnd both Morrell nnd
llycr Islands hnvo been quietly marked
off the government charts.
Capt. Morrell and Mute Byer seem
to have accomplished their object. For
thieo quarters of u century their
on maps and
ordinary Joke which lie played on the
world of shipping nnd comtneree !
Probably he srnrtely hoped thnt the! NOW is
Joke would Inst for scenty-llve years.
There is. of toursc. the other poislblo pnnfR Pllt In Ofd.lt
I By competent wotannw
tho time to net leak
breakage, won to, and Too
theory thnt Morrell nnd ll)er islands
were vulcanic, nnd suddenly dropped
out of sight. But tho expel ts du not
hold to this view. The islands -.he old
whaler told of were low and bvel, nnd
fertile, nnd nnythlng but volcanic In
appearance. Everything sernis 10 indi
cate thnt the whaler nnd his mate put
their heads together In the cabin of tho
Tartar and wrote out their nicely em
bellished description of the Islands
