A NIGHT OF TERROR.
BY GEORGE II. HOSEA.
When 15 years old I was ono of a crew
of threo that manned the little 2S-ton
schooner Ornament, which lay moored
in Monhegan hnrbor a deep, narrow
fctrnlt between the islands of Monhegnn
and Manana, Maine The entrance is
from the south, and is unobstructed,
while) to tho north tho passage is barred
by n rocky islet called Smutty Nose.
This is separated from Manamfuy a nar
raw passage on the westerly side called
"Drunken Out." The harbor Is fairly
good shelter, except when the wind is
jroin the southeast.
At daylight on the morning after our
arrival at Monhegan tlicro wns a stiff:
breeze, with rain from the southeast,
and by noon it bad risen to a heavy
gale. All day coasters, traders and
llshing vessels ran in till about SO sail
were in harbor when night fell.
They were anchored as near together
as they could be, and yet swing clear of
each other. This compact gathering
would be well enough in a smooth har
bor; but on little Monhegan, exposed
to tho increasing gale, with night com
ing on and the probability of a heavy
sen running into the strait, the prospect
.looked serious. Should a vessel part
Iter cables or drag her anchors, collision
with those to leeward of her would bo
inevitable, and the result of collision
might be disastrous.
When darkness camo the gale's fury
increased. The unobstructed sea rolled
into the narrow harbor in huge billows
that dashed against Manana or Smutty
Nose, or raged as breakers on the reefs
about Drunken Out. The vessels, ham
pered by their anchors and unable to
riso freely on tho surges, strained at
their cables, plunging and rolling wild
'Jy, while nearly every wave toppled its
vrest upon their decks or swept them
from stem to stern.
About nine o'clock, when tho gale
seemed at its height, a little craft that
had been anchored all day just on our
port bow dragged her anchors, ller
crew, like some otlicrs, had sought
safety on shore long before night.
Swinging to our broadside, she began
1o pound against us and to break into
Her bowsprit snapped, her bulwarks
-crushed in fore and aft, her masts went
over her taffrail. At last, plunging
from the top of a big sea, we crashed
down upon her forward deck. Her
- windlass-bitts gave way, and oft she
went, broadside to the wind, till she was
lost in the gloom and rain.
Anxiously we crouched by tho wind
lass, the captain h hand almost con
stantly upon cither one cable or tho
- other, that he might detect tho first
vibratory motion, indicating that the
anchors were being dragged over tho
rocky bottom. Hut they seemed to hold
securely. Our danger was of another
I was crouching in tho leoof tho fore
mast to shelter myself from the wind
and spray, when 1 heard tho captain
"Up, up with you, boys, quick!
There's a coaster adrift, coming right
Through thedrivlngrain.sure enough,
came a big schooner stern first, wildly
swinging to and frcn now toppling on
a crest, now wallowing down in the
hollow depths. Her gunwales almost
rolled under, and her mainboom, free
from its lashing, swayed madly from
side to srde.
Just as we were receding from a roll
ing swell sho crashed into us and
snapped our bowsprit. Then sho hung
square across our bow.
"Quick! quick! Give me tho ax!"
cried the captain.
In n moment ho severed both cables
at tho windlass, and we were drifting
with tho gale. No vessel lay directly
astern of us. The captain's hope wax
that we might not only go clear of the
coaster, but drive upon a small, sandy
beach at the end of Smutty Nose. But
the heave of the. sen. and the slant of the
wind drove us to one side, and wo went
upon the rocks instead.
There was a shock, a grinding crash
as sho struck. Then wc seemed to stop;
. nnd now tho sea broke over us in fury.
"To the dory, boys! The schooner
will go to pieces!" shouted the captain.
Without much difficulty wo got the
dory into the water to leeward. Jack,
-my shipmate, flung'hls clothes bag into
iho stern of tho boat, while 1 threw a
coil of small rope into her ere I tum
bled in myself. There was but one pair
of oars. These the captain took, and
began to pull toward Manana.
Away from the leeof the schooner we
-were exposed to the full fury of the
.gale, and tho courso to which wc were
compelled kept us in tho trough of the
sen. Every moment it seemed as though
we must bo swnmped, and in spite of nil
thnt we could do we were drifting rap
idly toward Drunken Gut
Suddenly a tholepin broke. Before
another could be put in the place we
were afoul of the standing rigging of a
sunken vessel, the dory almost on her
broadside, and we in imminent danger
of being washed overboard. But cling
ing instinctively to the uppermost gun
wale, wo succeeded in righting the dory
und working her clear of the wreck.
Again we were adrift indeed, for we
had lost an oar, and now had but one.
Our destruction now was apparently
but a question of moments, for if we es
caped tho reef a and boiling surf upon
one side, wo were almost certain to bo
dashed against the iron sides of Manana
upon the other.
I wns in the bow, peering ahead, when
tho hull of a vessel suddenly loomed up
almost directly before us, nnd appar
ently at anchor. While the captain en
deavored to keep tho dory headed for
her, I bent one end of my coll of lino to
the painter ring. Then grasping u
bight in my hand as the dory grazed
the schooner's sides, I made u spring
for tho rail and climbed on board. Then
I caught my line round a elect, checked
the drift of tho dory and brought her
Wo soon found that tho schooner was
deserted. Her crew liad sought safety
on shore. Wo thought ourselves ex
ceedingly fortunate that their vessel
had been in our way.
But we had been upon tho deck
scarcely 0 minutes when the captain
startled us witli the announcement that
the vessel was rapidly filling. It was
evident that sho had dragged from tin
harbor, and first striking upon tho reef,
had swung to her prcsentposition.
While the captain searched for a spare
oar, I grasped the line by which I had
fastened the dory nnd was horrified to
find it slack. No dory was there the
rope which had held her trailed away
astern and was lost in the dnrknesa.
Our last hope seemed to have departed.
But no as I peered through the
gloom I caught sight of a boat attached
to a long warp thnt trailed over the tail
rail of the schooner. It was a seine
boat. We quickly drew it up and got
Our drift in the dory had carried w
considerably to the leeward of Smutty
Nose, so that In our prcsentposition the
force of the sea was much broken. As
we crouched beneath the gunwale of
our new refuge, momentarily expecting
to see the abandoned schooner go down,
n light) from Smutty Nose gradually
shone out over the waters.
We saw that a fire hud been kindled
upon the island. Down at the water's
edge people were moving about among
the rocks. In a little while a boat
seemed to leave tho shore and drift slow
ly toward us.
As her erratic movements seemed tc
Indicate that she hod no one aboard, but
was drifting at the will of the wind, I
attached no scclal significance to hei
appearance, though I glanced toward
hex occasionally. Yet nearer she came,
sometimes directly toward us.
At times a heave of the sea would
throw her far to ono side, then she
would seem to linger a moment, tc
start off anew in our direction. Hall
duzed from exhaustion, I watched her
with flagging interest until she was
close at hand. Then I saw tha captain
reach out and grasp fcer by the gun
walo and hold her fast alongside.
He shouted for us to getinto her. No
sooner had we all obeyed than she
started swiftly for tho shore. Then I
perceived that a long warp led from her
to Smutty Nose and that the people
mere were pulling us toward them.
Owing to the direction of the current
tho boat could not bo dragged back (o
the point from which she started, and
we struck tho outer edge of tho wide
reef of rocks. It was nearly low tide,
and, though tho sea did not break upon
ho reef, every wave that rolled through
the narrow passage boiled up over it
in a swelline flood, submersinc the
rocks many feet, to subside again, leav
ing thorn entirely bare.
To run this gauntlet was our next
trial. Waiting until a sea retired, we
started over tho slippery, weed-grown
locks and ran as fast as we could until
an incoming wave overtook us. Then
we flung ourselves flat upon tho reel
while the flood boiled upoverus, clutch
ing the rockweed with both hands and
clanging to resist the terrible undertow
When the reflux left the reef bare
again we rose and ran onco more. Four
times tho flood passed over us. Then,
breathless, bruised and half dead, I
felt a grasp upon my collar and I was
uragged up out of the grip of the sea

SHAFTS FALL SHORT.
Oemooratlo Shots at the McKlnley Tariff
Fall to Hit.
The average democrat and supporter
of the Wilson law finds comfort in a
small incident. Tho person who could
extract blood from u turnip is a tyro be
side the people who obtain satisfaction
from the operation of the present rev
enue law. The New York Herald in a
recent article announces briefly that in
view of tho fact that the customs re
ceipts under the Wilson law during
Junuary, ISSiO, amounted to $10,380,970,
"the revenue, especially that derived
from tariff duties, is all that is now
needed for wi economical administra
tion of the affairs of the government."
Upon this statement tho editor build
n column article against the McKinley
law .and rails at it ns the author of all
the financial ills to which this country
has been subject in the past two years.
Had the writer of that article taken
tho trouble to look over tho monthly
rccclps of tho government during tho
last decade, he might have found less
encouragement in the January customs
receipts than his inexperience with the
facts has permitted him to indulge in.
January is always a heavy month in
customs receipts nnd Jnnuary of the
present year would naturally be even
moro in excess -of the average than
usual. The fact that the bill Increasing
the duties is pending in congress nnd
had been expected to pass both branches
was of itself sufficient to increase the.
importation of dutiablegoods.
Every importer of goods paying duty,
knowing that tho rates of duty upon
those goods was likely to be increased
15 per cent, at any moment, would
naturally hustle in as large quantities
of those goods at the present low
rate as possible. The consequence is
that January importations were un
usually largo and that the January cus
toms receipts wcro thus in excess of
what they are likely to be in any other
month or the year.
The assumption, however, that be
cause the January customs receipts
were Sl0,3S0,7aG the revenues of the gov
ernment this year are likely to be large
or to nearly approach expenditures Is
an erroneous one. In oint of fact the
customs receipts of January, 1800, arc
less than those of any January in the
last decade with the single exception
of 1894, when dutiable importations
were held back for the purpose of ob
taining the low rates promised by the
Wilson law, then pending in congress.
Ihc January receipts from the customs
during the past ten years are as fol
lows: January, 163? JIC.J50.TPO
January, IMS 17,361,913
January, us 1 11.451,6"!

January, 1&S0 20,&33,!W
January, 1SSS 18.IiG,C5!
January. 1SS7 17,021,140
It will be seen from tho above table
that customs receipts of last month
under the Wilson law, instead of prom
ising nn unusually large total for the
year 1S90, promise less returns than
those of any year except the ono in
which importations were being held
back for the benefit of the reductions
of the Wilson law, then pending.
The claim is made that the customs
receipts of January, 1S9C, prove a basis
for tlie belief that tha Wilson law will
provide sufficient revenue to meet tho
running expenses of the government.
The customs receipts for the mouth of
January, 1S95, were $17,3C1,90. Yet
tho total customs receipts of tho year
1893 were but $317,0 17.CS3, while the ex
penditures were $352,142,115, making n
deficiency for that year of $34,094,432.
The customs receipts for January, 1891,
are $1,000,000 less than for January,
1805, and nearly C per cent, below those
of January in the year which fell $33.
000,000 short of meeting the running ex
penses of the government. If the total
receipts of 1890 fall as short of the
total of 1895 as the customs receipts of
January compare with those of the pre
ceding January, it would indicate that
the 1890 receipts would be less than
$300,000,000, and prolwbly $00,000,000
below tho necessary expenditures of
The cold facts are that in the 17
months nnd seven days in which the
Wilson law has been in operation it
has fallen more than $73,000,000 short oi
meeting the running expenses of the
government, although $20,000,000 of its
receipts have been taken from the man
ufacturers of the country in violation
of the Wilson law itself, which' required
that taxes paid upon alcohol withdrawn
by them for manufacturing purposes
should bo refunded, nil of which sum
lias been held in the treasury as a false
credit to tho Wilson law. Had this been
refunded, as the law required, and the
sugar bounty paid, as directed by law,
tho deficiency of tho 17 months nnd
seven days In question would have been
over $100,000,000, instead of 575,000,000,

DANGER TO THE TREASURY.
Brought About by Secretary Carlisle's
Lack of Executive Foresight.
Secretnry Carlisle n destined to find
out that all is not gold that glitters.
Flattering bond subscriptions are sot
all turning out yellow metal.
Trusting somewhat too implicitly,
he required no deposit, no guarantee ot
any nature whatever, from persons ap
pearing ns subscribers for the recent
bond issue. Accepting the bids un
qucstioningly, he alloted tho bonds
without assuming that any of the
avowed subscribers would fall to'make
good the subscription. Ho is now dh
covering that, while it was easy enough
to make bids for tho bonds, it is not
quite so easy to find the gold with
which to pay for them. A number of
the bids will fail, nnd the forfeited por
tions of the issue will descend to lower
bidders, so that in the end the net re
turns to the treasury will be below tlw
estimated profit on the face of the subscriptions.,
There is no doubt that a number of
the bidders relied on treasury gold with
which to pay for tho quantity of the
bonds they ventured to underwrite.
The financial market has been dex
terously manipulated since the an
nouncement of the subscriptions, so
as to make gold difficult to get. There
were still other bidders who were will
fully unpntriotic and dishonorable.
They bid with no intention of paying
for the bonds, but for the purpose of
disposing of them at a profit to othen
to whom tho government would be
compelled to sell at a lower figure.
The report that the treasury would
hold such persons to their bids is on
its faco absurd. They cannot be lielil
under any known law. They may be
virtually and in intent guilty of seek
ing to get something on false pretenses,
but tho treasury took no precaution to
guard itself against such operators, and
must abide the consequences.
Secretary Carlisle is masterly with
his pen concerning the monetary sys
tem of the United States, its complica
tions, its dangers and its absurdities.
He is not, however, the first man in his
tory with excellent literary ability and
scant executive gift.
The new peril to the treasury only
reemphnsizes the monstrous folly of
perpetuating a monetary system which
makes the national treasury a con
stant prey of chance and conspiracy,
and tlie victim even of sharps and
swindlers. There Is only one cure for
the evil to take the treasury outof the
banking business. The spectacle of
Uncle Sam bunkoed in Wall street
ought to be intolerable to American
vanity. Even vanity is worth appeal
ing to when appeal to intelligence and
common sense falls on dull or deaf
ears. Chicago TimcsOIerald.

Imports and Labor.
Wages aro the laborer's share of tho
gross product of wealth. When that,
product is decreased the workman must
obtain a smaller share. If the decrease
is in value or id quantity, the wages
will be less in dollars. This year we aro
buying in other lands millions of dol
lars of material such as o made at
horrc last year and in the years pre
ceding. This means simply that foreign
workmen are performing for us serv
ices for which our workmen arc fully
competent, but ure not permitted to
iierforw. Not only are imports of man
ufactures increasing, but tho products
of agriculture arc coming in in larger
quantities. This forces many Ameri
cans into idleness. The unemployed
men ore thus impelled to contend for
the places of tho workmen who have
smploymcnt, tind the competition can
havo no other result than to drive down
all wages. N. Y. Press.
