It took 1.150.02 revolutions of the
propeller of the new tug Fearless to
bring her from San Francisco to this
port. She left the former place at
G:45 a. m. on July 27th and was alongside
the wharf here at 7 p. m. on the
5th, just 9 days, 11 hours and 15 minutes
from the time of starting.
Just after leaving San Francisco the
tug got into some very heavy northerly
weather and had to change her course
and run with the storm. On this ac
count she was about 30 hours later
in arriving than she would have been
had thn weather been good. On -o-
count of the big deck load of coal that
she carried, and as she was so deep
with the coal in her bunkers, she made
a very wet trip of it. One time the
waves washed clean over the vessel, almost
flooding the engine room.
The Fearless averaged 10 knots Tor
the run, which was 2,300 miles. She
used her sails a good deal, and on the
foremast a square sail was rigged.
The Fearless is a great addition to
the local fleet, being one of the most
powerful tugs on the Coast and almost
new. She was built at the Union Iron
Works in San Francisco last year and
has given complete satisfaction in
evervway. The tug has a complete
wrecking and fire apparatus and is
modern in every
She carries a crew of ten men as an
ordinary working crew and is well
equipped for long voyages, having a
commodious galley and sleeping accommodations.
Captain Brokaw, the master of the
Fearless, is an old hand at the tow
boat business, having been in the
Spreckels' employ for many years.
Chief Engineer Williams has been :n
the steamboat business a long time
and takes great pride in his vessel. The
second engineer, G. E. Purdie, was formerly
on the China.
For a year before coming here the
Fearless was in the government service
as tender for the transports in
San Francisco bay.
Work was begun yesterday repaint
ing her smokestack and getting some
of the salt water stains off her house
and machinery. She will be ready for
work on Tuesday and will divide busi
ness with the Eieu.
Under the permit given her by the
inspectors of steam vessels, her route
as a tug boat has been extended from
Sari Francisco to, Honolulu and ports
of the Territory of Hawaii.
WHY SAILORS ARE SCARCE.
The securing of competent seamen
both for war ships and merchant vessels
is becoming a serious problem,
not only in the United States but in
England as well. The Navy Department
at Washington, feeling keenly
the scarcity of sailors, took steps last
week to secure as many enlistments as
There has been more or less learned
discussion rpopntK nc rr ih ..inco

I suggestion bearing on a possible reme

Institution of London has had the matter
under discussion, chiefly in its

regarded by two or three Admirals is
;n uanger oi uecommg quite neipiess :i
something is not done to relieve iho
There is no doubt that the sailor's
life has lost much of its old-time
cinaUon. We hear nowadays of but
few boys who run away from home to
ship before the mast. The forecastle
nas lost tne gutter and glamour which
formerly enticed the shock-headed
youth from the scented fields of the
farm, and in this day he prefers to
stay at home and grow up to be "the
man with the hoe" rather than plow
the raging main. In the old days, when
the United States navy -was beins
rocked in its cradle, and the merchant
marine itself was young, there was no
little glory attached to the sailor's
calling. There were certain stunts he
had to do, and as it required no small
degree of professional knowledge to do
teem, ne took great pride in tHe accomplishment.
The pay -was not excessive,
but what Is gold when glory
awaits us? In those glad days every
man Jack who trod the fo'cas'le was a
hero with a lass in every port, did he
But in these degenerate days the
proud sailor is no longer a sailor, but
a scrubwoman. Down on his marrow
bones with sand and canvas and hand
holy stones, he polishes the deck over
which he stepped with so majestic
a mein that mermaids swarmed about
his ship and held appealing arms above
the sea. But there is no mermaid for
the modern Jack. He is a scullion
and a scrubber. The joy has gone out
of his life and the stain of tar off his
hands. "Who blames him if he gets full
ashore and goes back to his ship like a
boy with a stone bruise going to
There is nothing in this calling for
the American youth who is keenly
alive to its lack of opportunity for advancement.

The Swedes and Norwegians
are less fastidious in their tastes, and
hence the large number of them that
are found not only on the merchant
vessels of other nations but also on
their ships of war.
So far as Uncle Sam's merchant marine
is concerned, it does not look for
relief to our navyized schoolship,
whose system of training is how not
to make sailors. The first and permanent
relief is likely to come from tho
operation of the shipping bill, which
provides for the training of boys expressly
for the merchant marin V. AsMe
from this, the building up of American
shipping interests and the restoration
of our flag to the seas will at the same
time restore dignity and stability to
the sailor's calling and ensure Jack
