On uij lust voyage with Captain
vYatermuu wu itad b.itl luck with the
vrew. Two men were lout overboard In
a storm, throe died of xlckuess. and rive
deserted at Madeira. We went through
the fctralt of -Gibraltar wltli eight tueu
and when we reached Naples were -reduced
to six. for we had scarcely caBt
anchor when two mote men left us for
We lay in Naples a week, taking on
a cargo of olive oil. Ilgs and Italian
fruits. Several .days before sailing on
tle return voyage the captain was re
quested to take some money to New
Vork. It wasn't unich. but quite enough
to excite the cupidity of a common
sailor. Watormuu was so proud of be
ing intrusted with the amount about
$12,000 that be had to tell one of the
men nbout it The worst of It was that
we were obliged to make up the crew
at Naples in order to take the ship back
to New YorK, auu any oue woo uu
ever been in Naples will understand
what kind of men we were obliged to
accept. Some of thetn were a weak
ened, degraded lot. while the rest look
ed as If they had seen service as brig
ands The fact is that before we got
through with them 1 made up my mind
that they had siwut the gi eater part of
their lives behind bars
When wu sailed away from Naples
I confess 1 had misgivings about ever
getting across the Atlantic with such
a crew. The second mate. Hanford.
felt a good deal as I did about it but
the captain didn't seem to feel the
least uneasy. Before making due
westward we went down to Messina
to take on oranges. The evening of our
arrival I noticed by the looks of the
men and certain hurried consultations
that took plnce among small groups of
them that something was brewing.
Instead of going to my berth when 1
came off watch and feeling uneasy,
when no one saw tne I slipped Into
ono of the ship's boats. I hadn't been
there very long before there was a
commotion beneath me. 1 heard shots
down between decks, and several of
the crew poured up the companion
way, and the whole lot of them
talked hurriedly directly beneath the
boat I was In. I knew by what was
said that they hnd killed the captain
and the second mate and had been
disappointed In not finding me In my
berth. What had become of me was
Hielr chief topic of conversation, and
it seemed to trouble them very much.
Some one said that he had seen a man
leap overboard, and this seemed to
sntlsfy thetn that I had thus escaped,
but they didn't propose to take any
chances, and their leader, dividing the
ship Into sections, detailed two men
to search each section. Certain of
being enptured if I remained where I
was. when no one was near mo I let
myself down Into the water and.
swimming to the rudder, climbed up on
it. Not being a first class swimmer, I
didn't dare to try to get to the shore,
which was fully a mile distant.
It wasn't long before I beard the
anchor being drawn up, and I felt sure
that the men were going to put out
somewhere and I would stnnd a good
chance of being drowned perched
where I was. However. I couldn't
help myself and must take my chances
of meeting dpath that way rather than
giving myself up to be murdered.
They sailed northeastward and In a
few hours came near land, which was
a part of the toe of the boot of Italy,
as It appears on the map. They coast
ed along till they came to a very thin
ly settled region from which moun
tains rose from a beach. There they
ran the ship ashore. Taking two of
the boats, they landed, and, turning
the boats adrift, they began to walk
northward on the beach.
1 was nuvv relieved of my fear and
turned my whole energies toward fol
lowing them up and turning them over
to the authorities for punishment.
Swimming forward to the bowsprit
chains. I climbed up on deck, lowered
a boat and when the men were pass
ing around a spur In the mountain
nulled away from the ship. When 1
came In sight of tbem again I wns to
them simply a man In a boat, for they
were too far away to see who I was.
and. In order to lull any suspicions
they might have, I pretended to be
After proceeding northward for a
couple of hours, coming to a gap, they
turned eastward. I pulled ashore and,
leaving my boat, took the only road
tbey could have followed. They stop
ped at a smnll town, and I baited out
