The News and Courier says Capt.
W. R. llernand.-z an-1 miembers o.
his family succeded in landing a
forty-foot whaie on the beach at
Cole's Island. unear Stono. Sunday
afternoon. Thf- monster, which was
riuite dead. was seen tioating arount
the ilet near Capt lernandez's home
Sun lay afternoon. In :edii.ttely the
eaptain got bu.y. and with the 'ssist
anee of menilers of his family th!
imiense carcass n as landed Sund.ey
fternoon, after workin:; all Sa:
urday night anl most of th.e Sawp
bath. How the monster came to be
in these parts is not known. and
the cause of his death is as much 3
mystery as his pres:-ne.
The whale was Srst seen by Phoe
and Nellie liernandez. They were
walking on the beach Suniday after
ncon. when they noticed a great,
bulky object floatingt about in the in
let. Being unable to make owt
what it was. they h:.stened to *he
house and notified- their fath-r. Mlas
ter Charles Hernandez put his yacht
in oiAer in all haste and carried hi
rather out on the water to investi

red that he had a whale in h..
hands. which is about as unwieldly
a proposition as having an eleph.int
on one's hands. As soon as ht
learned that the big fish was ,juite
dead Capt. Hernandez set about get
ting it ashore.
Secured with stronz ropes. the
whale was towed by the little yacht
as far as possible toward the beach.
Reaching a point where they cou!a
not drag it with the aid of the tide.
'a-t. Herandez put the hMock anu
tackle system into operation. The
rope was carried around a pine tret
nearby and the captain, son and hiE
two daughters began to "haul in.'
It was a difficult proposition. ev'-n
-.ith so many on the rope to budzo
the fish. It was not until high tide
Sunday that they sacce-ded in drag
ing their catch up far enouzh to be
left high and dry at ehh tide.
It was suggested to Capt. Heran
dez th'at he bring the whale to the
city and have it exhibited. as the one
which was caught in the harbor SoW:.
thirty years ato was exhibited :t
Pregnall's ship yard. Capt. Ilernan
dez had a conference with Mr. S. i

MANY USE THE DRUG
CH.l.ESTON POLICE WAGE W.RAR
ON USERS OF CGCAINE.
The Unusual Number of Drug Fiend
Ca_'e% Has Aroued the Officials of
S!dom has there been as much
oca:ine using in the city as was e
denev'd by the police docket Monday
morning, says The News and Ccurier.
Most of the eases were summarily
dealt with by Recorder Jersey. while
t'wo wer.- continued. pending the re
*sult of an investigation of the drug
found on two of the prisoners. Dr.
F. L. Parker has been authorized to
analyze the drug. as the prisoners
in question claim that they did not
h::ve cocaine, stating that the drug
found on their persons is not what is
known among the criminal classes
as "ha;lpy dust."
The police are much wrought up
over the increase in the pernicious
practice of the drug using. and they
state that most of the crimes com
mitted in the city are either directly
o" in-!irectly due to this drug. They
.;re all under strict orders from Chief
toyle to arrest all offenders, and to
Sins:antly oApprehend anyone who
gives indications of hing been us
ing the dust.
Th;e use of the drug is not confinea
to the negro population, as a glance
at the list of those arrested will
show. Several white men are said to
have beconie notorious in the city
from this drug. while there are one
or two negroes. one of whom Is a
* -onan. who are arrested about once
Just how the people obtain the
druc is not known. but from all in
dienions there is an easy method of
nzttin: it. The police and the de
tectives on the force are endeavor
ing to learn the headquarters for the
szie of the stuff. but so far have
not been very successful. However.
they are in hopes of making some
important arrests in the cocaine line
in the near future.
Alfred Coleman. a young white
man. who was arrested late Saturd-.y
night for using cocaine, was released
on deposit of $75 ball. As he failed
:o appear yesterday morning for triat
the hail was declared forfeited. J.
W. Cox. white. who is well known
to the police, was also arrested for
having coealne on his person. His
case has been co-tinud. pending Dr.
I parker's inves'igation.
Another white man. G. D. Izard.
was convicted of having coenine on
his person. and was sentenced to
pay a $75 fine or serve thirty days
on the gang. The case against Fred
Campbell. colored, who was arrested
on the same charge. was continued.
as the drug which was found in his
clothes. is being analyzed by Dr. Par
Practically all of the chargeb
against the prisoners are entered as.
I"Having cocaine on the person."' as
the charge of cocaine using has to be
proved, and that is found very didi
cu:lt. To be convicted of using the
drug, the- criminal has to be caught
in the very act of taking a dose.
I t is hoped that the practice of using
cocaine will be reduced to a mini
mum within a reasonably short time.
