To Move Manchuria
WAITING FOR HIGH SPRING TIDE
No nttempt will bo made to pull tint
Manchurln off the reef at Wnlmanulo
till September 10. This decision hai
been leached by Capt. Metcatf after
carefully going over the work to bo
done before he will bo prepared for
the situation In a manner which will
be fully satisfactory to him. Anollar
matter which will havo a great effect
In the chances of saving the Pacific
Mall liner Is that the spring title,
which are about a foot higher than
the ordinary high tides will commence
on that date. 1 his will be of great as
sistance to Capt. Metcalf In his work,
as the Manchurln ran aground at lilgii
tide and the extra water will be equal
to a great deil of ballast thrown out,
If thero were such a thing to be token
More wrecking matt rial has been
ordered from t lie Coast and will arrive
on the Korea. This wlli consist In
tho wain of heavy hawsers with the
probable addition of a couple mure
Urga anchors. Tho arrival of the Si
beria has been most opportune as tho
carries a spare ten-ton author which
bts been turned over for uwi on the
Manchuria. The dredger Tactile Ifc

less and perhaps somo one of the Inter-Island
boats will be used in the
nttempt to pull tho liner off the reef
Capt Metcalf places his main reliance
on the power of the Manchuria her
self, which will be exerted through her
steam winches. Kvery heavy anchor
available will he used and when the
ph) etiological moment arrives the
winches will gradually pull lu the
cables attached to these kedges. Their
power will bo far greater that that ol
all the towing facilities of Honolulu
combined. When a vessel like the Ite
storer starts her engines at full speed
her propeller Pimply beats against the
water and after a certain maximum or
power Is readied she can do no more,
lu the case of tho kedges it Is different.
There It is certain that ono of two
things must give way, the MiiuchurlR
or tho anchors, that Is providing that
the cables arc of sufficient strength
The pull on tho anchors has another
great advantage in that the strain li

the power goes for nothing.
