A CASTAWAY WHO SPENT FOUR
YEARS WITH A RACE OF GIANTS.
Dan Mclntjrro la tb Only Survivor of
TeaMi Wreck wl on a Coral Beef Ho
flprail Four and a I1alf Yeara on an
.Inland and la Royally Treated.
Mr. Dan P. A. Mclntyre haa hail some re
markable experiences on the seaa He has
pent a good part of hia lay whaling in the
Arctic ocean and hunting the sperm whole in
the South Pacific rwas. Mr. Mcln tyre's ship
was once wrecked on a coral r.Hf , and he was
the only man of the crow ho was saved.
His companions were washed up on the rocky
heech of the Marquesas IslnntU and killed.
Mr. Mclntyre atill lieara an u'y "'W over
his right eye that, he received during the
storm, and, hen he came to hia senses, he
found himself lying on the rocky shore with
a group of natives bending over him. Here
he remained for four and a half years, the
only white man on the island, when he was
picked up by a French man-of-war. Relating
his experience, he said:
"The Marquesas pronp on which I found
myself consists of sixteen islands, twelve of
which are inhabited The greatest distance
between any of them is about forty miles.
The natives, away back in thi we times, passed
from one island to the other in big canoes
and small sail boats. During certain seasons
of the year the Pacific was stormy; but tbe
natives were well acquainted with the
weather, and knew when to venture. The
islands are located in latitude 9 dogs, south
of the equator.
"The people belong to the Malay class, liav
ing dark, straight hair and swarthy com
plexions. Like the Fiji Islanders, they are
very tall and muscular, plenty of them
measuring seven feet in height. I never, be
fore or since, saw such powerful fellows.
They are rather bright men, and live, like
the Snmonns, on the fruits of the islands,
that crow in abundance without much culti
vation. Wild hogs and sea fowls were the
only game to be hunted; in fact, there were
no other animals on the Mauds. The natives
pent most of their time in taking life easy,
occasionally hunting and lisljing.
THE KISG'8 PKT.
"My life for four and one-half years
among these people was pleasant, taking it
altogether. The first six months I could
scarcely endure it. If I hnd lieen impris
oned in a cell I could not have led a more
miserable existence. Pay after day I climbed
the highest mountains, and sit for hours
canning the horizon, looking for a sail; but
none appeared. The peoplo were friendly,
and tried to console me in their uncouth way.
I appreciated their kindness, and, after a
while. Warned enough of their language to
be able to converse with them.
"life then became less unbearable, and I
prepared myself to wait for a vessel to come
long. The king of the island made mo a
namesake of his, and I lived with him for the
first year. When I found I would have to
stay for some time, I built a house, and, to
amuse myself, 1 was In the habit of going
into the forest and pulling up young orange
ana lemon trees to plant about my home.
"The king tattooed his name on my lee.
which made me a privileged character, and
equal to one of his relatives. If 1 broke any
of their laws I was not punished, and the
king would not allow any ot his people to in
sult me or treat me rudely. In this respect I
must say that I was greatly admired by all
the natives. They have a vast deal of respect
r or a wtilte man, and many of them envied
my white skin.
"The natives on the different islands were
hostile to each other, and most of the time
were at war. The king would never allow me
to mix up in any of their fights. He held mo
in too sacred a light. Once I was captured by
a neighboring tribe. They knew by the tat
too on my leg that I belonged to their enemy,
and they decided to tattoo me all over. They
started on my lower limbs; but tbe pain was
so great that I could scarcely stand it It
teems some French missionaries hod visited
the island forty years before, and failing to
Christianize the natives they left. One of the
old men had learned from thorn to talk a lit
tle French, and in that language I begged
him to go to my king and inform him of my
plight. This he did, when my master made
peace with his enemies and I was released. If
they had disfigured my face I don't believe I
should ever have come hock to America.
"When the French ship came along I
boarded it, and went with thorn to the Island
Obatito, where a number of Europeans live.
There I remained for two years Imfore I re
turned to San Franclco. The French nion-of-war
was making soundings and surveys
for the purpose of locating a naval station.
Since then I have learned that they estab
lished a coaling station on the island where I
spent four and a half years of my ufo."
Tint bamboo pipe lixe.
Mr. Mclntyre's story of how he astonished
the natives with an engineering feat on the
Marquesas Island, where he was so long a
castaway, is very good. They had, from
time immemorial, been in the bubit of carry
ing all their drinking water from springs
away on an eminence in the back ground of
the principal settlement. In that tropical
clime this was quite a task, yet they could
conceive of no way to improve upon it.
First convincing the king that be hod a
much bettor plan, Mclntyre was granted the
necessary assistance, and succeeded In con
structing a sort of bamboo pipe line from tbe
springs to the settlement, so that tbe natives
thereafter got their drinking water without
any labor whatever. It was a great scien
tific triumph to their notion.
When Mr. Mclntyre came back to Pitts
burg he found it so greatly changed that the
old familiar city was new to him. Finally,
however, by diligent inquiry, he located his
brother, a liquor dealer, in the eastern part
of the city. One day he went out, ordered a
glass of beer at his brother s bar, and, with
out making himself known, engaged in con
versation with the gentleman.
"You had a brother Danf ' said he.
"Yes," was the reply ; " but he was
drowned in the Pacific Ocean went down
with his ship a good many years ago."
"But," was the rejoinder of the returned
Dan, "I met a fellow, uot so very long ago,
either, who claimed be bad recently seen
your brother Dan, and that Dan had a great
story of how he had lived, a castaway for
years, with savages on an island."
"Impossible! He's dead poor Dan I"
"But do you think you'd know Dan if you
"Yes, indeed 1 Add twenty years more to
each of our lives and I'm sure I'd still be
able to recognize my brother Dan, if I could
only see him alive again, in any part of the
world or under any circumstances."
"But years have already passed, and Dan
bos changed a good deal since you saw him."
"He might have changed if he'd lived
bat I'd know him anyhow; sure as you're
"Well, then, John, I am Dun Mclntyre,
your brother, and I'm not drowned. Here I
am; look at me closely and you'll seel"
Recognition really followed very soon; and
the liquor dealer became a counter Jumper
and embraced the brother, seemingly return
ed from an oceanic grave to Ufa Pittsburg

GETTING KID OF GARBAGE.
Hoaae of the DlflVrewt PraeeaaC mt
Ilnpos)lac of City Reran 1st stiver
TawBK.-Homo Favor BsnlsE It.
The question of the best way to get rid
of garbage ought to interest the authori
ties of every city of the Mississippi river,
or wherever a river iB used as a dumping
place for refuse material. The Minne
apolis city council recently appointed a
committee with authority to fully investi
gate this subject. The committee went
south and east, wherever different sys
tems are used. The committee returned
a few days ago and formulated a report
to be submitted to the council at its next
meeting. The members of tbe com
mittee are unanimous in the opinion that
the Mere process, otherwise known as the
Vienna system, which is in use in Buffalo,
and has been adopted in Chicago, is far
the best they saw during their travels.
In this process the garbage is placed in
vats and subjected to a great heat which
dries out all tbe water. Tbe oil is then
extracted and utilized, and the residue is
used as a fertilizer.
Dr. Floyt expresses his opinion as fol
"The Merz precess is unquestionably
the best for this reason: "Instead of
taking a material and destroying it, at a
great expense, as you would do by using
any other process, you utilize it at a small
expense. From a sanitary and scientific
standpoint, it is perfect, as far as I can
see. When the system was introduced
in buffalo tbe citizens insisted on having
the plant located in tbe suburbs, but now
they are sorry they did, for it has been
found to be not in the least offensive. In
Chicago the plant is in a thickly popu
lated portion of the city. The only
question with us now is expense. We
have received no figures as yet, and don t
know what the cost will be."
The Rock Island garbage wagons
started on their rounds this morning.
The refuse is conveyed to the dump
boat below the city and carried out to
the main channel of the river and
The SpriDgfield Monitor devotes a half
column to a complimentary write up of
lion. E. W. Hurst, of this city, who is
undoubtedly one of the most popular
members of tbe legislature, and his pop
ularity is due too, to his exertions in be
half of his constituents. The Spring'
field paper accompanies its sketch with a
cut of Mr. Hurst and says: "This is no
fulsome puff, but real admiration for one
whom we regard as most thoroughly con
scientious in discharging his duties and
representing his constituents fully.
He has made one of the hardest work
ers upon tbe judiciary, insurance, muni
cipal corporations, public buildings and
grounds, and of the joint committee of
house and senate on enrolled bills. His
record is one of industry, perseverance
and splendid judgment while a member.
by which he has secured the confidence
end esteem of not only his own party,
but of tbe thinking men of the republic
can side of the house. We have watched
his course with a great deal of interest
and predict that there is a bright future
for him in politics should he not become
disgusted with it and prefer the position
at tbe bar to which his ability as a lawyer
and his high sense of honor, social and
moral status, so well adapts him. He
has made thus far one of the best of
records as a legislator and none know
this fat better or have more pride in it
than bis constituents. The Monitor
takes pride in presenting unsolicited this
tribute to a young gentleman of whom
his people of both shades of politics are
proud and who is the arduous and ins
domitable champion for any measure his
