WHO THESE MEN ARE.
A Seaman's Opinion of the Samoan
Disaster and a Description
OP THE BEfAVE GUKBOAT CAPTAINS
The Perfumed Barline of the Ballroom
and the Tankee Tar.
WHAT MIGHT HAPPEN IN CASE OP WAR
Scientific, naval and Government experts
lave almost gone wild in trying to explain
just how and why it is the American and
German ships went to pieces in Samoan
waters with inch fatal results. Thev have
claimed old age, inefficient seamanship, and
even actual carelessness, but they have all
evidently been wide of the mark judging by
the. statement of a naval officer now in
This gentleman explains the disaster in a
natural and easy way understood by
even the most hopeless "land-lubber.'.
As a'graduate of Annapolis jn the class of
'54, he at one time or another served on
each of the American ships for a time, and
he flatly contradicts the statement that
they were tubs and clumsy to handle. He
says as late back as 'SO they rode seas like ar
bird, and he says also they would never
have gone under in any other port
in the world where proper precautions arc
taken. The gentleman is well known in
"Washington naval circles, though he does
not wish his name mentioned, as he has
given up the seas for a position more lucra
tive, if less heroic.
The Lieutenant weaves in with his expla
nation, a little description of the unfortuu
ate officers of those vessels, who hare been
brought into such prominence before the
world. He says the published details have
been very meagre, but they are sufficient to
his mind. The story is substantially as fol
lows: HOW IT HArPESED.
In Samoa, such hurricanes as the one
mentioned, arc of almost instantaneous
origin, and no Government precautions are
taken to avert a disaster.
As war, and rumors of war between Bis
marck and Hiss Columbia had been peace
fully relegated to the background, without
doubt, the American and German gunboats
were lying at anchor, almost side by side,
with not a particle of steam up, and all
hands idle, at the very moment the hurri
cane was brewing in the carly morning
Now at other properly conducted ports,
this is what would have happened: The
bureau of observation on shore would have
been apprised of the approaching hurricane
by telegraph, or by their instruments, a
message would have been sent to the fort,
and the heavy roar of the signal guns would
have apprised the early morning watch on
the gunboats of their danger, and in a jiffy
steam would have been up, the anchors cast
off, and the splendid boats beading out to
sea to fight the wind in its teeth, or run be
fore it in safety.
There was no signal in Samoa, and no in
dication of what was to come, except, per
haps, by what might and what might not
have been indicated by the ship's glass. The
sleeping officers and men were awakened,
not by the roar of the signal gun, bnt by the
roar of the wind, and, struggle bravely as
they might with creaking masts and sails
whipped into ribbons, only one result
could, and did, follow, all this, when a lit
tle steam would have saved them.
One word as to the personality of the
American officers on board the wrecked
ships. The informant was personally and
well acquainted with each, and he cannot
speak too highly of their bravery, kindness
and ability, especially of the commander of
the Vandalia, Schoonmaker, who gave an
order with his last breath, and was dashed
unconscious by a furious wave against the
very gun he had petted and hoped would
some day save his ship, not destroy the
Captain's life. H was then swept over
board and drowned.
SOT EVES' PRETTY, THEY SAT.
Schoonmaker was in the Annapolis class
ot'54, and is described as not by anv means
a handsome blue coated ideal ballroom dar
ling of the navy, bnt a little fellow, not even
good looking, of a mild and sunny tempera
ment, and a voice like a woman's, when on
parade, but tones of an iron ring in mo
ments of danger, and his last command was
certainly heard above the shriek of the tem
pest, if not, throngh inability obeyed.
When he first entered Annapolis he was
accounted almost a coward, on account of
his mildness, but underneath all this there
was a will as unyielding as his calm, kind
ly eye. He left Annapolis with one motto,
and only one, engraven on his heart, the
motto by which every Yankee navie swears:
"Don't give up the thip." He was adored
by his inferiors in office, and respected by
his superiors, and he died as they all be
lieved he would, at his post of dutv.
Parquahar, Captain of the Trenton, is
said to be oneof the finest seamen In the
navy? and married a girl almost as well up
in sailing as he; a daughter of an Admiral.
He was, luckily, saved, though his vessel,
the Trenton, was thrown upon the wrecked
"Vandalia. Parquahar is An older man than
was Schoonmaker, and has been tested in
more than one critical moment, where no
time for deliberation or advice showed the
true man or the coward. Everything a
seaman could do for the Trenton was done,
and not quite in vain.
AX IDEAL COMMANDER.
Mullen, Captain of the KJpsic, was of the
same class as the informant, '57. and is a
brother of the famous Mullen of Yellow
stone Park fame in '54. Mullen is not
thought much of personally, but as to his
capacity there has been no question. A
firm disciplinarian, unyielding as iron on
board ship, he could unbend a little when
off duty, butwhen on the bridge the hardest
taskmaster "of them all. A p2rfect com
mander. "I just wanted to give you some idea,"
said the gentleman in closing his story, "asto
the sort of stuff we Yankee seamen are made
of. You newspapers seize hold of a curled
striped darling of the ballroom and make a
lot of fun of him, and no wonder. But you
take this very curled perfumed fop, put a
stout ship under him, brave men aronnd
him, and the starry flag above him, and the
enemy will be in front of him, never behind,
and one after another there would appear in
the records of a naval war, the names of
men and heroes, who fought noblv, and died
bravely foi his country and flag. This is
the ballroom lounger, and this is the "Yan

The Second Choice of Samnel G. B. Love Ii
Neither Wife Nor Widow, In Splta'ofa
Certificate Other Salts.
A hearing was had in tne Orphans' Court
yesterday in the matter of distributing" the
assets arising from the sale of the estate of
Samuel G. E, Love. Love died insolvent,
and, among the claimants against the estate,
was Josephine .Oliphant, who claimed
$159 50 as wages as a servant at the rate of
$3 per week. The demand of Miss Oli
phant was resisted by other creditors of the
estate, who asserted that she had lived with
Love as his wife.
From the testimony taken it was made ap
parent that Miss Olinhant had been deceived
into a false marriage. In 1SS5 she went to lire
as housekeeper with Love, who had separated
from his wife some time before. Shortly after,
when her relatives went to see her. Love
showed them the marriacre certificate between
himself and Miss Olinhant. After his death J
sue went to an attorney to see aoom puiuur in
her claim to Love's estate as his widow.
The attorney made a search of the court
records, and ascertained that Love had never
been divorced from the first wife, which would
leave the marriage to Miss Oliphant illegal.
She then nut in a claim for wages as a servant,
stating that she had never received any money
from Love. Her sisters testified that when
she returned home she had less clothes than
when she left. The hearing was continued un
til next Monday.

A Word About Celery,
With its crisp, blanched
stalks, daintily trimmed with
delicate green leaves, it is the
most toothsome bouquet that
ever graces your table. And
the healthiest, too. Pleasing
the eye, tickling the palate,
and improving the health,
ought it not to "be called the
king of vegetables.
The great medicinal virtue
of celery lies in the seeds, not
in the stalks, and the choicest
ceiery seed is used in the
manufacture of Paine's Cele
ry Compound. Combined
with hops, dandelion, buchu,
sarsaparilla and other medici
nal herbs, it forms a medicine
of unequaled power for the
cure of blood disorders, nerv
ous diseases and rheumatism.
The medicine of to-day;
every bottle sold sells two
Domes more, ior tne users
recommend it to their friends.
Perhaps you haven't tried it
yet. If not, take your spring
medicine now, and see that it
is Paine's Celery Compound.
