Diamond Head Reef
Scores Another Wreck
British Bark Dunreggan Goes Ashore Under full Sail
-Broad Daylight, Wind Off Shore-Tug
Fearless to Assist From London
With Full Cargo for
The British bark Dunrcgpnn, n st-el
vessel of large dimensions, Is on Ilia
reef off Diamond Head, at a point mid
way between the lighthouse and tho
signal station, nearly a half mile from
shore. The Dunreggan Is from London
with a full cargo of cement, firebricks
nnd ammonia consigned to the Hawa
iian Fertilized Co.
The vessel was eslghtcd early thli
morning bearing down ns other vessels
from tho direction of Maknpu Point

nnd was booming along In tut direction
of the city when, ot a sudden, she came
to n dead stop. She had struck on th-j
reef In the very same spot ns tin
Gainsborough (now tho Diamond
Head) the last vessel that went ashoro
In the vicinity.
How this thing happened Is a mys
tery. There was a stiff breeze off
shore and the sky was overcast. Then
again, It was broad dav light. The
charts and maps should have shown
the captain the reef upon which he
went, but evidently, something went
wrong, for the vessel Is hard and fast.
Lookout Charlie refrains from say
ing Just how the Dunrcgpnn came to
go ashore but he does state that, as
soon ns sho did get on the reef, slii

with her bow pointing out to sea. This

As soon ns the Dunreggan was far
enough down this morning, the pilot
boat with Cnptaln Lurrnzcn aboard, set
out for the vessel. The tug Elcii
started out n little liter. Upon arriv

so tho tug boat men hauled In their

Then the Mokolll, commanded by
Captain Napela, came steaming along
and approached quite close to the Dun

In the meantime, the Hawaiian Fee
tlllzer Works people, tho agents for
tho vessel, made arrangements for tho
tug Fearless to go out It was at
about 10-20 o'clock that the crack tug
of Sin Francisco, reiched the scene
of the disaster. A heavy line was soon
over the side and the Fearless begun
her first work In Hawaiian waters.
At first, It was thought the Dunreg
gan moved n little but It was soon
found thnt no Impression whatever hid
been made;. She was simply churning
up a little of the sand thnt covers som-i
parts of the coral reef and settling
deeper. Though tho wind was blowlr.i
and the sails of tho fore ami mlzzen

was burning coal nt a great rate, tho
Dunreggan remained upright.
At about 12.15 p. m. the Fearle'ti
