RETURN OF THE PROSPER.
Disgruntled Miners Who Are Not
Chary of Murmurs Against
Their Recent Chief.
The eighteen men who purchased
shares in the little schooner Prosper and
went on a rold -hunting expedition last
April got back home yesterday.
They are very bitter again*t the man
who induced them to mortgage their
homes and use other means of raising
money in order to reach the new El
Dorado, and should they lay hands on
him there will be trouble. The statement
of the returned gold-miners is as follows:
Last winter a man named F. C. Bender of
Berkeley eilveriised for a party of men to go to
the Alaskan guldflelds. In Rnswer to in
quiries he informed applicants that he would
lake them to a claim in Alaska that would
pay good dividends, if not a sma^l fortune.
Eighteen of us paid him $100 apiece each for
& hiiare in his schooner ProsDer, in addition to
paying for the provisions and ou'fit.
We sailed from San Francisco April 6, but
stress or weather compehtd us to put into
Drakes Bay twice. Owing to dissatisfaction
we returned to San Francisco April 19 and
engaged Captain Robert Quiuton in lieu of
Captain Holm and sailed again on April 26.
We encountered nearly all head win-Is and
gales until May 27, -wnen we anchored near
Point Steele, Alaska, and prospected for two
days and found nothing. Bender then in
formed us that his great secret place was
Resurrection Bay, to which place we pro
ceeded, arriving June 1. We prospected all
around and found nothing. Bender then
coolly Informed us that there was nothing
there. We then deposed him from the man
agement of the business and elected Y. E.
Corder manager. We then proceeded to Turn
again Arm, Cooks Inlet, and landed after a
protracted and desperate battle with the mos
\\\i found the whole country located, but
there were plenty of Ciaims to be leased or
purchased. We also found hundreds of idle
men and millions of busy mosquitoes, but no
Bender had tried secretly to divide the party
and abandon the others and start out with
two or three of the men on his own account;
his scheme did not work, whereupon he
abandoned us altogether.
After prospecting all around the country we
finally leased a clsim of Martin Chester, on
Resurrection where we turned the
stream and worked the river bed for one week,
sluicing, but we found practically nothing.
Discouraged and disgusted we then deter
mined to return borne. We left Hope City ou
August 8 with a number of passengers for
Siika. We encountered head winds and a
succession of southeast gal-s, the most of
which occurred on August 23 and SO. We
rigged out a sea drag and hove to under bare
poles for twenty hours. For the first six
hours the wind blew with hurricane force.
Captain Quinton, who had weathered many
hurricanes, says h« never experienced such a
gale. But our schooner acted splendidly ai.d
iiot-a single sea broke on beard.
We reached Sitka on September 6 and left
for Sau Francisco September 11 with line
weather but head winds aii ihe time, and ar
rived in due time safe and sound. We owe our
most grateful tuanks to Captain Quinton, who
brought us through all right.

F. C. Bender, a prosperous carpenter,
living on University avenue, near Sacra
mento street, conceived the idea of the
expedition and succeeded in getting seven
other citizens of Oakland and Berkeley
interested in the scheme. These seven
men were F. E. Corder, a foreman in the
empioy of the judson Company; H. C.
Shook, an Oakland route-agent for a San
Francisco newspaper; Charles Olsen, an
employe of th? Judson Company ; John
F. Voyler, an Oaklander; 0. Christensen,
a San Francisco wharfinger; A. F. Plat
ner, another Oakland man, and A. E.
Corder, also of the Judson Company.
There were eleven others who became co
partners in the scheme.
After prospecting for a while they be
came discouraged and disgusted, and
finally set sail for home, leaving Hope
City on August 8. They reached Sitka on
September 6, and left for San Francisco on
the lltu, arriving here last night.
Bender has been in the City for nearly
two months. On one occasion the miners
held a mtetins and threatened to lynch
him, »o he made his escape and came to
Sar. Francisco. There is now sure to be
litigation, as the miners hold me con
trolling interest, and Bender, as the
holder of a one-third interest, is listed as

THE SAN FRANCISCO CALL, SUNDAY, OCTOBER 4, 1896.
The American Ship Centennial, That Had to Come Around the Cape of Good Hope in Order to Reach
San Francisco, and the Schooner Prosper, That Brought Back Eighteen Disgruntled Gold-
Hunters From Alaska. Both Vessels Got in Yesterday.
A NEW RECORD

Hundred Days From

Vessel Around the Cape of

Arrival of Two Schooners From Pros
per—One From the Alaskan
Fisheries— Varying Luck
The American *hip Centennial got in
from New York yesterday. On one occa
sion she was in desperate straits, and the
cargo shifted. The captain put into
Montevideo and repaired damages. The
reuort of the voyage is as follows:
Sailed from New York March 17. On March
29, in latitude 39 Oeg. 40 miii. north, lonei
lude 70 deg. west, had several fresh gales.
Took east trade winds in latitude 24 deg.
north ai.d carried them to the equator.
Crossed the equator on April 17. Had
fre^h southeast trades thence to latitude
20 degr. south. Had light variable winds to
latitude 37 deg. south. Had a heavy v.est
sonthwest gaie, with a hisli cros*-sea. Ship
laboring heavily, filling decks to the rail and
getting water in the main tanks, aud shifted
. Had to run the ship before the w'nd 250
miles to trim cargo. Put into Montevideo on
May 21 and sailed on the 31st."
Had the usual weather in the South Atlan
tic. Passed Cape of Good Hope on June 23.
Crossed the Indian Ocean in latitude 3d to 39
south with cloudy weather and westerly gales.
On August 3 passed through Bass Straits in
South Pacific; had moderate t<outh winds.
Passed to the northward of New Zealand and
to the eastward of the Friendly Islands.
Auguest 10 took southeast trades, which
were very light and well to the eastward.
Crossed the equator on August 28 in longitude
100 west. Had light northeast trades from
latitude 2 north to latitude 32 north. On Sep
tember 7 passed four miles to the westward of
Nuhau Islands. In the North Pacific had very
Considering that the vessel went around"
the Cape of Good Hope, she made a smart
passage. There is the usual amount of
srumbling aboard and Captain Colcord
had to put some of the men in irons in
order to maintain discipline. The trio
around the Capo of Good Hope was a long
one, but the ship has made* better time
than some of the vessels that left before
her, considering the distance covered.
The Centennial is now an old timer and
the chances are that she will never make
another trip around the Horn. When her
cargo is discharged shd will probably be
sold to the highest bidder.
There are two schooners Prosper in port.
One is from the Alaskan fisheries and the
other is from the Alaskan cold mines.
The men on the former made over $100
bonus, while those on the latter are $100
and more out of pocket. Tne Centennial
was lying at anchor in the stream when
the gold-hunters passed up the bay in the
The tjasoline schooner Monterey, which
got in from Bowens Landing yesterday,
went on the Presidio shoal on her way up
the bay. It was during the fog and tne
captain did not consider the matter of
sufficient importance to hire a tug. The
vessel was li^ht and on the next tide she
driited off and went to her dock.
The steamer Mariposa is one of the
handsomest steamers on the water front.
Yesterday she was ia holiday attire and
looked as spick aud span as a yacht. She
had been newly painted and the brass
work around her deadlights flashed in the
sun like burnished bronze. As the Zea
landia is to go out of commission. Captain
Hart, who was her commander, Will go
out as chief officer of the Mariposa.
The passengers who were on the TJma
tilla wnen she went on the rocks in Pujiet
Sound have sent the following letter to
September 29, 1896.
On board steamer Umatlila. We, the under
signed, passen%ers on board tha steamship
Uuiatilla, wish to express our heartfelt thanks
to Captain Hunter, Captain Lloyd (the Dilot)
and Chief Engineer Lacey and the entire crew
of the Umatilla.
The perfect discipline displayed in prepar
ing the boats for leaving the ship speaks vol
umes to the passengers, and we deem this a
fitting moment to express a lasting obligatiou,
believing that the accident could not have
been averted on account of the heavy fog and
tne failure of the log-signal at Point Wilson to
warn us of our dangerous position until after
the ship had struck the reef and then when
first heard It was very faint.

The bark Leon, formerly the Nicaraguan
bark Don Carlos, is now loaded with lum
ber and anchored in the stream, bound for
Fremantle, Australia. The lumber is for
the Coolgardie gold mines, and should
bring good prices there. The L-on was
purchased from the estate of Nick Bichard
some time ago by Joseph Hume. The
-latter sold her to J. J. Moore & Co., ana it
is the latter firm that has loaded her for
Australia. The Don Nicholas, a sister
ship to the Leon, is now an ark at Tiburon,
and the widow of the deceased Nick
Bichard is using it as a residence.
A private letter from the bark Qayhead
shows that Captain Foley has done well
so far. By the last steamer the whaler
sent down 2203 pounds of bone, and there
is now over 1300 pounds more on the way.
After her first shipment from Dutch Har
bor, the Gayhead could not set out again
on account of calm weather. The revenue
cutter Rush towed her twenty-five miles
out to sea, and almost as soon as the lines
were cast off a whale was sighted. Boats
were lowered from the Gayhead, and the
mammal was captured. The bone was
sent ashore on tbe revenue cutter, and
Captain Foley headed for the Arctic.
According to the letter, the steam
whaler William Bayliss had not been hav
ing a good time. The crew had mutinied,
and the captain had had to make the best
of tbe situation. One whale was taken,
but the prospects for a successful season
were not good.
James Milder, mate of the steam
sciiooner Crescent City, does not want any
more bicycle riding. Last trip he tooic a
"bike" along with him and on his arrival
at Crescent City went out to astonish
the natives. According to him he col
lided with a bear but others say it was a
calf. In any event the bicycle is ruined
and Milder says he will never ride again.

A FORLORN CAUSE
Judge Ferral Talks Shrilly
for the Bourbon
Advocates a Platform Even More
Radical Thaa That of the
DOWN ON ELECTOEAL COLLEGE
A,n Hour of Anecdotes and a Plea for
the Wandering Candidate From
There was a Democratic gathering at
Metropolitan Temple last night which
was largely permeated with Republican
sentiment, judging by the coldness with
which some of tbe attacks on McKinley
and protection were received.
Franklin K. Lane called the meeting to
order, and he was followed in a brief ad
dress Dy Charles S- Peery, candidate for
Assembly in the Thirty-eighth District,
though Robert Ferral waa the princi
pal speaker of the evening.
Mr. Eane held that the election of Mc-
Klnley would be "not for the Nation's
honor, but for its destruction; not for the
glory of our flag, but for its disgrace."
Continuing in that line of illustration
the speaker said: "The corporations,
trusts and monopolies are opposed to
Bryan, so that he now becomes a hero,
the champion not of free silver alone, but
of the free ballot."
Candidate Peery followed in a brief but
pleasing address, wherein he held that he
was of the opinion that partisanship had
haj-piJy been forgotten this year in the
wider realm of citizenship.
"We have broken away from the old
lines," he said, "and the grand old party
was broad and courageous enough at Chi
cago to break away from the evil influ
ences that controlled it as they had in
fested the Republican party." The senti
ment was cheered and the speaker con
cluded with an appeal for "Bryan and
When ex-Judge Ferral was presented
there wore three cheers for him. The
veteran of bourbonism gracefully bowed
his acknowledgment to the acclamations
of the galleries and proceeded to entertain
the audience with a number of his cam
paign anecdotes, revised to date. The
speaker said he was in bad voice, and he
begged the audience to excuse him from
discuasing the silver question seriously.
"Now they are noldine my poor friend
Barne3 responsible for his Bilyer speeches,
but they are wrong. Barnes came out for
silver on St. Patrick's day, and any man
who holds another responsible for St. Pat
rick's day utterances is unfair. [Laugh
ter.] But people are changing the other
way. I pledge you my word that in thirty
years I have never seen so many changes.
The country is alive with silver Demo
crats, men wno would die for Bryan,
In Los Angeles alone there are 2500 Re
publicans in one Bryan club, and that
shows bow the State will go. [Wild yells
and great cheering.]
"Now there are Republicans in Maine
and Vermont; Vermont, the Green Moun
tain State. I tbink it is the greenest State
in tha Union [lauphter], but if you put up
the Maine and Vermont majorities against
those of Arkansas and Alabama you will
be snowed under by 20,000, and nearly two
to one in the Electoral College.' 1
The speaker then explained that the
Chicago platform was too tame for him.
"I wanted it to be a wild outburst of
radicalism," he said, "so that it would/
stand forth beyond question. I wanted it
to do away with the two-thirds rule and
ask for the abolishment of the Electoral
College, a thing that throttles freedom in
The speaker answered the objection that
Bryan was a young man, by naming Clay,
Jefferson, Patrick Henry, William Pitt,
Robert Emmet and others who become
great ere they grew old. He dwelt on the
benetits of the income tax, touched gin
gerly on free trade, denying that the Wil
son bill was such a measure, and then
pleaded for everybody to give Bryan a fair
chance because "he is brave and" manly."
He believed Lincoln was right in his
fear that this country would fall into the
hands of the very wealthy and that the
poor would be enthralled.
In conclusion the ex-Judge pleaded for
an American financial system and prophe
sied that any other scheme would result
in utter subjection to foreign nations. He
spoke of the Populist convention as "a
glorious and independent body of states
men" and concluded with an extravagant
