took to yachting and spent most of
their time on their very fine yacht.
While lying at anchor in tho port of
Antwerp, Leonce jumped overboard to
save the life of an English sailor, be?
ing rewarded by a modal from the
English Koyal Humane Society, and
also from the English government, in
1886 the two brothers rescued the crew
and captain of a Norwegian three
master that was foundering at sea la
a gala, and a year later they rescued
the captain and crew of another sink

Is more highly valued by moat French
people than the Legion of Honor, since

It was In 1810 that the two brothers
resolved upon a trip around tho world
on their steam yacht. From time to
time their mother, the aged and wid?
owed Baroness do Graeve. who occu?
pied a handsome mansion at Pintails,
received letters from them describing
the progress of their voyage. But af?
ter twelve months these letters ceased,
and the old -nother became vary anz

In the month of February. ISM, a
small Tahltlan sloop arrived In the
principal port of tbe Caroline Islands,
with only three moa on board, who
obviously bad tbe greatest difficulty In
i navigating tbe craft. No sooner bad
i she let go her anchor than a Tahltlan
I half-breed came asbore and announced
' that the name of the boat was the
I Ninirahitla, and that be was tho only
sunivor of a Tahialan crew, who, to
i gether with tbe native owner of the
[host, and also Its native captain, had
I been murdered by a couple Of French?
men who were aboard with him. and
who went by the name of the Rorlque
brothers On the strength of this de?
nunciation the two brothers were at
once placed under arrest by Uta Span?
ish authorities, while the half-broad
waa held as a witness, and the first
time that a French cruiser came lato
port, all three were turned over to tho
commander, who after communicating*
with the home authorities brought
them back to Brost for trial by the
maritime court, the crime having been
committed on tbe high seaa
When placed on trial at Brest tbe
two brother? preserved the most mys?
terious and reserved demeanor, which
went far to prejudice the Judges
against them. They admitted that the
name of Rorlque did not belong to
them: that the papers and documents
bearlne that name had been purchased
by them in an Australian port. But
they absolutely declined to reveal their
identity, or to give any explanation of
their antecedents, or to tell how they
came to abandon their own name, and
to be cruising about in the pacific
Ocean. They. however, strenuously
denied the charges of piracy and of
murder which had been brought
against them by the half-breed Mirey,
pointing out that If his charges as
been true they would certainly not
nave spared his life to denounce their
crime and to testify against them.
This very sensible argument did not
sppeal to the Judges, who likewise
made the mistake of conceding to the
witness a far greater degree of belief
than should be granted to native or,
worse still, half-breed testimony. On
the evidence of Mirey, the refusal of
the brothers to explain their use of a
false name and the disappearance of
the crew of the N' nirahitia the Judges
declined to grant any attention to the
efforts of the brothers to exculpate
themselves, and sentenced them to
Tbe explanation which the brothers
gave of tbe disappearance of the cap?
tain and tbe crew was to the effect
that the captain and the proprietor
while fighting with one another had
tumbled overboard, and that as the
crew was composed of full-blooded
feouth Sea Islanders, with tbe excep?
tion of tho half-brood, the brothers
were only able to malnta'n any sem
robSance of discipline at tbe pistol's
point, moat of tho crew Jumping over,
board and swimming ashore on ap?
proaching the Island of Tetlaroa. to
which they belonged.
