GOOD PURCHASE FOR OWNERS.

Results of the Efforts or Captains Ward

Little Damage to Hull To te Repaired.
The bark Gainsborough from Newcastle,
JC. S. W.t which went on the
reef opposite the lookout station at
Diamond Head on the morning of August
29, was safely taken off at 2 p. m.
yesterday and towed to a point near
the railway wharf where she now lies.
After the wreck was bought by Allen
& Robinson Captain Thompson ot
. the baik S. C. Allen was given an interest
in her to take her from her position.
He sent schooners to the vicinity
and removed a 'lot of her cargo of coal
from between decks but he had to
leave -with his vessel for the coast and
he transferred his interest to Captain
Calway, late of the Waimanalo. Captain
Calway continued in the same
pla,n and when about 350 tons of the
cargo had been taken Out of her the
Amelia Captain Ward, arrived in port.
As the captain has had experience in
this line of work, Mr. Allen sent him
out to the wieck with the request that
lie examine her position and give his
opinion of her condition.
On his return Captain Ward reported
that the work was all right, but that
it could be accomplished quicker by
the use of an engine and pump. This
suggestion was carried out by securing
the necessary articles from the Oahu
Railway Co. With much difficulty
they were put on board, but the fire
box in the engine was .so small and
the defects in the pump so numerous
that it was four days before the pump
could do mach. When it was in order
a six-inch stream of water was forced
out of the pipes and in a few hours the
twenty-one feet of water in the hold
had lowered a foot. As the vessel had
listed to starboard and the water was
coming over Captain Ward ordered
the hatches battened down so as to
keep out all the watei possible.
When sufficient water was taken out
the vessel swung round on an even
keel and the men were set at work
throwing coal overboard so as to make
her as light as possible. Seventy tons
only were lost in this way, but the
loss was a profit in other ways, as it
enabled the owners to get the vessel
off in much quicker time. Yesterday
morning the between decks was free
.from water and all that was in the
vessel was in the lower hold. Captain
Ward went ashore and telephoned
the owners that he believed the vessel
could be pulled off at high tide, and at
10:20 the tug went out, reaching there
an hour later. Lines were fastened
on the stern-of the Gainsborough and
the tug started. The vessel moed
about a foot and then sank down and I
it was some little time before another
attempt was made. This time "the
movement was scarcely perceptible, but
the natives on the wreck felt it and
sent up a shout. A few minutes later
the vessel was in deep water, floating
like a duck. She slippel two anchors
and a hawser, but these were of little
consequence compared with the valuable
vessel. They were given to the
Luka as a prize and there is no doubt
they will be picked up.
The damage to the Gainsborough is
slight Captains Ward and Calway
believe the only hole in her is in the
bow, just forward of her water-tight
compartment, and this fact made it

The Gainsborough is an iron bark,
built in London thirty years ago. Her
dimensions are: Length over all, 230
feet; gross tonnage, 1,039; net, 974.
When she went on the reef she was
in charge of Captain McPhail, who had
been master of her for the past twelve
years. Before abandoning his vessel he
consulted some of the most experienced
seamen at this port, and acting upon
their opinions he turned the wreck
over to the Marshal and it was sold a
day or two after at auction. There
were few bidders and it was knocked
down to Allen & Robinson for ?1,825.
Marcus Colburn put in a claim ror
but it was not allowed.
It is difficult to get the exact value
of the vessel, but it is variously estimated
at from fifteen to twenty thousand .
dollars. He saved cargo of 1,200
tons of coal may be put down at 6,-000,
and this will probably pay the expense
of bringing her into port and
making all the repairs necessary on
the vessel. It is conceded by every one
that Allen & Robinson made a good
