SHE IS THE PRIDE OF THE FLEET
TEE 2EBOTI.T IWALASI HAD
HER DOCK TRIAL YESTERDAY.
W. B. Flint Sails for the Coast
Hustling Freight on the
"i tray afternoon the Waterwitch,
AichJe Young's fine launch, was out
lor a trial spin. She went outside the
harbor almost to Diamond Head and
showed that she is a fine bxl boat.
Quite a party. Including the ownu
wro aboard and all were elated oer
the performance of the httle boat. She
was not speeded, as it was thought
best to bao several trials and let the
engineer and captain get tAed to her
before she U put through her paces.
The Waarwitch Is one of the flnt
models of a small craft ever seen here
and is euti.ely different n build from
dl the otlur launches
It was found necessary wheu the time
came for putting her into the water
to move tht Rosamond to the Railroad
wharf to pet the use of tbe derrick
there. The launch's weight is about
fifteen tout,, and being so large it was
not considered safe to handle her without
IWALANI S TRIAL.
The Iwalanl had a dock trial
and overythlug was found to
satisfactorily. The machinery
vraz turned over and worked to perfection.
The work of finishing the alterations
to the deck house will take
about a week longer and then the
will "be put in commission.
CHALLENGER'S NEW OFFICERS.
The owners have taken over the ship
Challenger Captain Gould, who
brought the vessel around from New
York, btirr ndered po&bession to Captain
PWiz, formerly of the Wm. Careen,
a. ho v ill in future command her.
'I hoe. Buruett, who has for seernl
months be u in the Lehua with Captain
Ueunett, is first mate Burnett is
in charge of the overhauling of the
ChnlJenger and started in jesterdav

Of wooden shii)3 Uie da-s aro long
uvur, for, .so far as British yards are
concerned, uoue of them are now built.
If wc oxcopt sailing coaster and other
small crafu In fact, but few wooden
Uiip come into English ports. Occasionally
there aro American sailers to
ba seen, and magnificent vessels they
are, with graceful hulls and lofty
masts; craft that sail like a witch And
make wutir incontinent!, just as do
brigs, whoso windmill pumps
must bo kept going constantly. But
for the iJrLish mercantile marine steel
ships have long drlveu those of wood
to the shades of oblivion. It is
however, to regard this
of wood by iron, and later by
ateel, without a certain feeling of regret,
just as It is impossible not to
hanker after the brave days of tar and
homp. when as yet the motive force of
ssteain was unharnessed.
The London Syren, Indulging in
some of wooden ships,
notes that the famous ship built of
English o.ik was the ill-fated Roy.l
George Sle was built In 1746, and
while she measured 14S feet 5 inches
alons her keeL the length of her gun
dck was 179 teet and her tonnage
vta ,2,047, while she fought 100 guns
and carried a crew of 750. She was
lost by earning In 17S2. A somewhat
sfiui'ur craft was the Victory, Nelson's
flagrhip at Trafalgar, now preserved at
PortsmcuUi. When that famous fight
took plaet. she was 40 years old, so
that the shipwrights of the last century
knew how to do justice to the British
oak furnished them. They did not always,
however, practice such skill auJ
workmanship for before the close of
tlio renln&uiar war there were many
as to lack of vitality pos-
tetsad by British war vessels.
The Nightingale, a famous Yankee
Clipper, sailed SS6 knots in twenty-four
hours, while two or Donald McKay's
fine fleet put even this grand performance
into the shade. They -were boats,
of 245 feet keel, with a beam of of 44
itet C laches, and one of them, apCy
termed Flying Cloud, covered 427 knots
in the day while the Sovereign of the
Seas is creSIted with averaging no less
than IS knuts during a day's run! But
English owners were not long in taking
a ktion frutn the American's book, tor i
in 1S5C the Lord of the Isles, built by
Messrs. Scott &. Co. of Greenock, sailed
n nux two of the Yankee cracks
from China to London and came in a
ajood winner. But the days of wooden
shijjs were over. Now they are a mere
memory of the past, and with them has
c'owd a romantic chapter in the
