Capt. James Gurney. of the barken
tine Bruce Hnwklhs, which was puk?
ed up ax sea abandoned i<y the Brltisii.
steamship Henrietta H. and bn uglttlnlo
this port last week, is now In New >ork,
but Is expecteil here In a f< w 'lays to
look after his Interests In the vessel.
It will be remembered that < apt. uur
Wey and his crew were- lakeu Crom the
Hawkins by the British steamship AM
dnnmohr and carried to Havana ami
then to New York. Captain Gurney
tells a thrilling story or his expert
enee on the vessel before he abandoned
The barkentlne, laden with 600,000 feel
of Georgia 'pine iu h<>l<l and on deck;
sailed from Savannah on November sth
for Boston, she ran Into a northeaster
on November 11th. It was blowing with
hurricane force on the night of No?
vember 12th, and the Hawkins was
hove to under n storm trysail. The deck
load lashings were torn apart under
the strain caused by the rolling and
pitching of the ship In the pounding
syas. At night some of the big planks
.fouled the rudder, the chains were
smashed, and the Hawkins drifted Into
the trough. All bands sought safety |
on the deck house aft.
The barkentlne rolled her rails under
and shipped several combers, one of
which submerged all hands. When It
had mingled with the sea over the lee
side liiere were only a few men left
clinging to the deck hoiiHc. Mate
James Fr?ser and Seaman William H?r?
den had -been washed overboard with
the ship's dop. a setter. Tito Others had
been hurled Into the lee scuppers. Capt.
Gurney's nose was broken ami one
of his ribs was- fractured. Trie saw Oor
don strugelinf: In the waves trying In
get back to th'-s hip. He mistook Clor
don for Mate Fr?ser. The skipper and
his mate had boon fast friends for
many years, and the skipper decided
to risk getting him. A line dangled
from the spanker boom. The skipper
grabbed the free end. Hod II about his
waist,' and jumped overboard, lb
reached thes ailor and held on to him
until they were drugged back on the
vessel by their shipmates. The skipper
got a. cllmpse of something that looked
like a log as ho was hnuled aboard. He
thinks It was tho body of the mate,
who -probably had been stunned before
he was swept over the ship's side.
The inrushing waters had filled all
space below deck early in the day ami
destroyed all provisions except twenty
biscuits In a small cask. There was a
little water loft In the butt, but It was
so brackish that It was hardly fit to
drink. The men wanted tho biscuits
divided immediately. The skipper
said that they might be on tho wreck
several days, and that cadi man should
: have no more than half a biscuit at a
meal. The skipper stood guard over
the cask alternately with the steward.
After the mate was lost the barken
tine was driven on her beam ends under
the tremendous pressure of a squall,
and she lay In the seething trough for
several hours, while her men clung to
her starboard side. The .side was par?
allel with the sea. and the men could
go about on it as if It. were a deck. At
last the weather shrouds of the main
and ? mlzzen gave way, the masts went
overboard, and the Hawkins righted.
Then all hands again assembled on the
top of tho after bouse.
On the morning of the 14th the gale
had decreased to merely a stiff wind.
A man was sent aloft to hoist a Hag on
the halliards from the truck of the fore
topmast, and scan the horizon for
smoke or sail. Wien he saw the Ar
danmohr steaming down from the north
he gave a delirious shout, which was
echoed by his sore ami weary mess?
mate. Tt was soon seen that the Ar
danmohr had observed the Hawkins"
.pjlght, ami was heading for her. Then
the famished crew insisted on eating
the rest of the biscuits, which Capt.
Gurney dealt out to all hands, taking
no more himself than any of his sail?
Capt. Davey, of tlio Ardanmohr bad
been searching for tin- wreck for seve?
ral hours. Ho surmised that some ves?
sel had come to grief when he steamed
close to a lot of drifting lumber that
stretched many miles to the southward.
He traced the Hawkins by this trail
for twenty-five miles. Then the look?
out in the crow's nest found her on the
lenses of his glasses, and the Ardah
mehr lost no time going to hoi The
Hawklns'hoats had been destroyed.'and
her Caplain and crew were taken off
In one of the Ardanmohr's life boats.
