other Is In two cases In which they

though they must lose their right.
"There Is only one wny out of tin?

Tho little schooner Sailor Hoy. now

will be condemned and In all prob

dations coming from the special board
of Biirvey appointed at the Instance
of Representative McConnell of tho
Hoard of Marine Underwriters of San

Captain Krratt, master of the dis

with Captain Lancaster, the skipper
of tho American schooner W. J. Pat
terson whereby the nlncty-Ilvo tons
copra bo transferred from the Sailor
Hoy to the Patterson, and carried to
San Francisco. It Is claimed that the
amount offered was not of sufficient
Inducement to the owners of the W.
J. Patterson to cause them to divert
the Patterson fiom her regular course
to I'uget Sound and attempt to land
tho copra at the (iolden Gate.
The coprn Is valued ut approxi

Tho men who have worked the ship

pending Iho receipt of their pay. With
the final disposition of tho vessel, tho
transfer of the copra, Captain ICrrntt
states that he has funds ut hand with
which to pay off tho crew,
ln the estimation of local shipping
men, It Is believed that to haul tho

tho vessel at Seattlo when she was

a disagreement with Captain (low,
Iho mnrlno superintendent of the Dol
lar S. S. Co., and left the vessel on
the day of her sailing, his place be
ing taken by Captain Russell, former
ly mate of the Dank i.luo S. S. Ku
merle. From word thnt hns been received
at Ilakadatu, Jnpan, prior to the de
parture of the Siberia from Yoko
hama, tho damage to the ship Is not
so severe as al llrst anticipated, and,
In view of the fact that the dock
there will not be available for some
tlmo to come, also because It was ne
cessary to get the ship to Hankow
before tho water fell too low In the
Ynnglsc, It was decided to mal.o tcm
IHirary repalis with the assistance of
livers; also to Install two centrifugal
pttmiis, after which the vessel will
proceed on her voyage.
