Mr. Shaw Says
He Really Saw
A Sea Serpent-
(N. T. Sun.)
Another chapter has been added to the
rather fragmentary history of the great
sea senient. This time the story comes from
the Jersey coast, and its sponsor Is Mr.
Willard P Shaw, of 41 Wall street. Not
only did Mr. Shaw have an excellent view
of the monster, but hi6 wife, their nine-year-old
son, and Miss Ella B. D. Salter, of Pat
erson, who was visiting at the Shaw's
cottage, at Spring Lake, alo watched It
for sercral minutes. Moreover, a neigh
bor, who was walking along the beach,
observed the phenomenon, and bis observa
tions tallied exactly with those ot the 8haw
As it is Mr Shaw, who is sponsor for the
story, it is worth while to take into con
sideration four points regarding him.
First, he is temperate; secoLd, he is not
subject to hallucinations, third, his sight
ts excellent, and fourth, his veracity is
unimpeachable. The same is true ot the
other observers. Mr. Shaw, who Is a law
yer at 41 Wall meet, acd alio president
of the New York Balance Dock Company,
lives in Patcrson, and has a cottage at
Spring Lake, N. J.. Just across the road
from the tea beach. Ou Sunday afternoon
be, Mrs. Shaw, Miss Salter, and young
Willlard Shaw were silting on the front
porch, which overlooks the sea. trying to
keep cool The afternoon was calm and hot,
and the only motion of the water was a
long, quiet swell breaking monotonously
on the beach. The conversation, which
bad been very desultory, .had almost died
a'way, and about half-pan ,1 Mrs. Shaw
was considering the advisability of gotng
nil stairs for a nap, when Miss Sailer.
who had been looking intently out to cea
toward the north, laid:
"There's something strange out .there In
the water, and it is coming this way."
Looking where she pointed, the others
saw a black object projecting rroru the
water, and about it a considerable commo
tion. "Perhaps it's a school of porpoises,"
suggested Mrs. Shaw.
"Or a whale!" exclaimed the boyc!ap
ping his hands. "Oh. papa, do you sup
pose it's a whaler"
"It doesn't act like any whale I ever saw,
and I've teen a good many," replied Mr.
8haw, shading his eyes with his hands;
"and It certainly isn't porpoises. It I be
lieved in ruclt things. I should say It well,
bring out the big field glasses."
Running into the bouse, the boy quickly
came out with a pair or very powerful
field glasses. Boylike, he held them to his
own eyes for a moment before giving them
to bis father, and, ou getting th object in
range, he cried out:
"Why. Iapa, it's a big snake!"
Mr. Shaw took one long look at the crea
ture in the water and iassed the glass to
Miss Salter, who. after using it, handed it
to Mrs. Shaw. Then tiiey all looked at
"The sea serpent!" they said, simultane
ously, and hurried down to the beach.
By this time tho creature which wai
plowing through the water with tremen
dous rapidity, hail reached a point opposite
them. Judging from the fishing net poles
set out in the water, Mr. Shaw thinks that
it must have been about half a mile out
from shore, about where the excursion
steamers usually run. The water there is
sixty or seventy feet deep. As there were
no waves to Impede the sight, an excellent
view was obtained of the monster's every
motion. , ,
As near as they could Judge, the serpent
was from 75 to 100 reel long. The head,
which projected about six feet above the
water as It swam, was flat-snouted like an
alligator's head. It seemed five or ctx
feet long and as large as a flour barrel la
circumference. No part of the body was
as large as the head, the mean diameter be
tas perhaps two feet. Its tall was long
and tapenng. In color the creature was
very dark No fins coold be seen, nor were
there tentacles projecting rrom the head,
as described in the case of the serpent re?
ccntly alleged to have been seen In Long
Island Sound. It made no noise, trot the
water was greatly stirred up by its more
menu. Progress was made by a series of
writhing, movements, not .side wise, but up
and down. Its speed was estimated a
being at least forty miles an boor. -At
time nearly all the body coaU.be sees
as the huge serpent contorted itself, and
again only to bead was oat ol water.

From the time A. was first sighted to the
time It disappeared in thedistanee the head
was not once withdrawn beneath the sur
latc of the water.
"Evidently the serpent had some deficit
objective point in view," said Mr. Shaw
in ..escribing it. "for It uever paused or
turned rrom Its course, but kept pointing
south, skirting the coast at a distance of
hali a mile out. A little further in and it
would have struck tlie nets, and then there
would have been a line commotion, I sup
pose. Luckily the creature kept to tba
deeper water. I think if It had turned to
ward the shore I should have been in
clined to collect the lamily and run for the
woods. It was in sight for not more than
seven minutes. '
" When Miss Salter first saw theserpent it
was more than two miles down the shore,
and altogether we must have seen it cover
considerably more tlian rive miles. I should
say that forty milesau hour wasa moderate
estimate of tlie speed. In describing our
strange visitor generally I should say
that it looked like an enormous smooth
skinned serpent, withanalligator-hkehead."
After the monster had vanished rrom
sight. Its uplifted head being the last thing
seen, thespecta tors went back totheporch to
talk It over. In comparing observations
they found that all their estimates agreed.
While they were talking, a neighbor who
owns a cottage not far from Mr. Shaw's
came up breathlessand In great excitement.
"I've seen the sea serpent." he gasped,
when he reached theporch. "I was walking
along the beach andsawlt asplalnax Isee
you now, swimming south faster than any
steamer that ever floated, out beyond tho
fish poles. Didn't any of you see It?"
They assured him that they bad all seen
it. and asked for his description of It, which
he gave. It tallied with theirs exactly. Be
fore he went away he said to Mr. Shaw:
"I hope you'll make this, thing public. It
Is too wonderful to keep quiet about. I'll
goat any timeand take oath to what I have
In his excitement, the neighbor went
away without giving Mr. Shaw his name,
but he can be found easily at any time. The
question of the expediency of making pub
lic their adventure was discussed by th
Shaws. Mr. Shaw was very doubtful
about what hechould do.
"A great many people will think that
you are romancing," said his wife, "and
many others will make fun of you or think
you are trying to make run or them.
Nevertheless, as there Isn't any reasonable
donbt that It was the sea serpent we saw
I think, as a matter or scientific interest;
you ought to give out the facts."
"Let m?ople guy it they want to," decided
Mr. Shaw. "I know what I've seen, and
I'm not going to be afraid to tell about It,
I gucM my reputation Is strong enough to
carry a fea serpnt,"
So Mr. Shaw sent word to the Sun yester
day, and a Sun reporter called on him at
tils office. At the time one of Mr. Shaw's
partners was endeavoring to chaff him.
aliout the matter, but he stuck to the facts
and insisted on the reaUty of the serpent.
"It Ita't a fake or a Joke, or anything
but the plain, bare, ucembellished truth,"
said he to the reporter. 'Tm not a ma n who
lias time to make up lies and take trouble,
to get them made public, nor do my ideas
of fun He In that direction. It Is simply
this, that I, a plain man of business, with
no hotels to advertise by getting a sea ser
pent to cavort around in front of them,
have seen a creature of which I had hith
erto doubted the existence. I believe that
no man has any right to conceal data on a
subject so interesting scientifically and
so Ultle known.
"Unfortunately for the sake of abun
dance of evidence that might bare been
adduced." continued Mr. 8haw, "tie ho
tels down at Spring Lake are closed and
the place Is practically deserted. The ex
cursion season Is orer, too, and while a
month earlier there might bare been a

to the coast as It was when It went out of
range of our vision I should think that it
would be seen somewhere from the land
further down. I and my family are natu
rally deeply Interested lu the matter, nnd
we shall study the papers for some further
news of the serpent"
In conclusion Mr. Shaw said that he
was willing to make affidavit in support
of his statements. 1
