Reading in the pnpers the other day of the
nrrtMt of the mute of the Rio steamer Fi
nance for cruelty to three or four stowaways
who niailn their appearance after the Teasel
was well on her voyage, hah recalled vividly
an adventure I hud when a boy of 14, and,
though I was a very humble individual my
self, the particulars of that adventure stirred
the people of a great kingdom.
I know the sailor from topmast head to kel
son, I have sailed In all sorts of crafts, with
all sorts of crews, and have served many
captains. I know that sailors are rough and
uncouth, and that there is always n. disposi
tion to find fault and to magnify evils. Jack
would have his growl, no matter how well
fed or how well used. On land there 1 a cer
tain antagonism between employer and em
ployed. I In ship board this Is Intensified, but
that is hecauw the employer bos so much
more power over the employed. I frankly
admit that I have never met half a dosen
sailors, no matter what sort of captain they
were serving under, who were without com
plaints, but it does not follow that all the
others complained without reason. The ship
may be comfortable and full handed, the
fare all right and the captain a good man,
but the mates enn still make the craft mighty
uncomfortable for the men. I venture to as
sert that there are not half a dozen long voy
age sailing crafts leaving our shores in which
abuses calling for loud growling do not ex
ist, and what is true of America is true of all
otlier countries. The Dutch, Swedes, Rus
sians and Lobars will stand over work, poor
grub and the abuse of officers, and as much
for this ream as any other the Yankee sail
or has been driven from the aea and his
place filled by thxso sulwtitutes.
Wbeu I was 1 1 years old my mother died,
and my father decided to go to Australia. I
was his only child, and he was by no mean
burdened with money. lie was a inantw
plumln-r, and he net out for Sydney under
contract. Three months after our arrival he
married again, and it was not six weeks be
fore my stepmother pushed me into the
Itreet. I was under sized and sickly, but I
never gave her the slightest cause for even a
harsh word. She simply took an aversion to
me, and somehow her hatred came to be re
flected in my father, ite saw me thrown out
do the world with hardly a protest, and two
days later when he met me in the street he
gave me about eight shillings In money and
advised me to set up as a bootblack and news
boy. I should probably have followed his
luggestious had I not on that same day
chanced to full in with two or three lads who
were planning to stow themselves away
aboard of au KnglUh brig called the Charles
H. Churchill. They were Uys who had run
away from home or been thrown over like
myself, and the idea was that they could do
better in England. I win, invited to join, and
when our pluus had been luid tluire were four
of us of about the same age. We looked the
brig over, found that we could get aboard,
and made our arrungemetita.
One night, when the brig wan nearly ready
for aea, 1 stole aliourd, carrying with me
about two quurts of water and four pounds
uf bread and meat. This was the share I was
to furunu. I was to he first aboard, slip
down the midship hutch, and the others were
to follow at brief intervals. A Cre on board
a ship a few hundred feet away collected the
crew of the brig aft, and I got aboard with
out risk. The bold was nearly full of bags,
barrel and Imixuh, and after waiting a few
minutes I made my way over these toward
the bow, and found a very comfortable place
on a lot of dry hides. I remained awake and
alert for two hours, and then fell aideup
without realizing thut I was a bit sleepy. It
was morning when I awoke, and as the sail
ors were at work lielow I dured not move or
call out I figured that my companions were
In biding around me, and so rested easy
through the duy, sleeping most of the time.
At about sundown 1 felt tho ship under mo
tion, and an hour luter the hatches were
' loeed and I was iu midnight darkness. I
bad matches and a stub of caudle, aud, after
striking a light, I moved around aud whistled
and called to my companions. I could make
my way over the freight pretty easily in any
direction, and I would not give np that I was
alone until 1 had searched for a full hour,
Then 1 was tositive that I was alone; the
others had either backed out or bod been
uameu in tueir attempt to get aboard. 1 was
much ujiset at the discovery, bkcI crawled
back to my bed aud cried myself to sleep.
It bad teen agreed among us boys that we
should keep secreted three days after sailing.
None of us autiuipaUxl auy trouble when we
should muke our presence known. I hod no
way of computing time, as it was night all
the tune in the bold, but after my bread aud
water bod been used tip and I was hungry
and thirsty, I decided that tho three days
were up. t rawling to the cover of the hatch
I knocked on it and shouted, and after a little
It was opened and I was tie4ed out It was
V o'clock on the morning of the fourth day.
The first word from the captain was a curse.
and his first act was to swing roe about the
deck by tho hair. Then be called for a rope
and beat tun until I fainted away, and while
lying unconscious he and the Brut mate
kicked me several times. When I came to I
was ordered forward among the men. They
gave me kind words, satisfied my hunger and
thirst aud hoped that the worst was over. It
was nut, however. At about noon I
called aft, aud after the captain had interro
gated me as to my identity and why I bad
selected bis vemel, he gave me another beat
ing and turned me over to the unite wltU the
1 "You can huve him now, and I Lope you'll
kill him before the weuk la out."
' "Aye, sir, leave that to me," was the reply.
"I'll find u dozen ways to make biin wish he'd
never been born."
I bad committed an offense, but nothing
deserving such punishment as I received for
the next throo days. I was flogged, kicked,
cuffed aud maltreated in every way captain
and mute could think of, and was more than
once rendered iiiMiimible by thuir cruelty. I
beard the men cursing the ofllcorg for their
conduct, and encouraging each ether to In
terfere, but I was pussive. Indwl, after a
beating or two, I was wo honied that I could
caroely remember my own name. On the
afternoon of the fourth day, soon after din
ner, while I was forward with the watch
aud assisting the sail maker to rejiair a tall,
the first mate called me aft The wind was
light, and the sea smooth, and a few fathoms
astern of the brig was au enormous shark.
It bad occurred to the two brutes to bav
some fun with me. The mat noosed a rope
and panted it around my waist, and then,
while I struggled and shrieked and begged
for mercy, he carried me to the port quarter
and dropped me overboard for shark bait
The shark niado a rush ft nie, but I was
hauled up Just in advance of his Jawa The
captain and mate laughed uproariously, and
the latter had picked me up to drop me from
the other quarter when the entire crew came
running aft I saw that much and then
fainted away, and what took place while I
was unconscious was new clearly related
The crew'bad determineiMo interfers, and
their action excited the captain and mate to
a terrible degree. The former bad a revolver
In his pocket, and when the crew refused to
go forward be fired at and wounded one of
them. This brought on a fight, in which both
officers and one of the sailors were killed. It
was rebellion not mutiny. The sole idea of
the crew was to protect me from further
cruelty. In carrying this out murder waj
done and all were liable to the gallows. The
dead bodies were lying on deck when I re
covered consciousness, while the men had
congregated ia the waist of the brig for con
sultation. The second mate, whose name was
Chapman, had sympathised with the crew,
although be bad no hand in the fight He
was now asked to take command of the brig
untU it could be determined what should be
done, and he did so. The three dead men
were prepared for burial in the usual way,
and launched over the side without service,
and an hour after the fight not a trace of it
When the question of what should be done
came up for discussion most of the uiea were
appalled at the seriousuess of the case. It
was the first duty of the mate to set a signal
of distress, but, of course, nothing of the
sort was doue. avUuder the law be should
bead for the nearest port and there surrender
brig aud crew, but, of course, he had no
thought of this. While he bad not incited
the crew to resistance, be bad not come to
the aid of the officers. It would have been
easy to prove his sympathy for me, and that
would have made him the accessory of the
crew. It was realized that all had outlawed
themselves, and the question was, where to
go, and what to do with the brig. It was
finally decided to haul up for the Solomon
Islands. The brig was bound home through
Torres strait, as she had two ports of call
to make before reaching the Cape of Good
Hope, and we were not more than 450 miles
out of Sydney when the murders occurred.
We therefore had a voyage of 1,500 miles be
For the first week men could not have be
haved more sensibly. The discipline was
good, and all were under proper restraint
We were sighting vessels daily, and on sev
eral occasions we wore passed so closely that
we had to signal our number and report all
well On the third day a man-of-war exchang
ed signals with us, and through some buug
liug on our part his suspicions seemed to
have been aroused, and he would have per
haps boarded us had not a change in the
weather occurred. After about a week, how
ever, the men began to get independent and
to bring forward new plans, and there was
no longer any harmony among the crew.
While Chapman was the only one who could
navigate a ship, and while he had been put
in charge of the brig, the men finally refused
to do any work beyond that of sailing the
craft Some openly advocated that we turn
pirate, aud others wanted to run into some
port and sell brig and cargo and divide the
money. This was booted at by the more in
telligent, and gave rise to further ill feeling.
The brig bad light or contrary winds and
made slow progress, and at the end of two
weeks the situation on board could not have
been much worse. There were nine of us,
including the cook, a black man, and each
man of them seemed determined to do as be
pleased. All messed in the cabin, and all
bad access to the liquor, and as a conse
quence fi-hts frequently occurred, and there
were times w hen the brig hod close shaves
from being mode a wreck. On one occasion
the men charged the mate with playing
them false, and with planning to deliver
them up to justice, but he somehow satisfied
them that he was holdiug to the course orig
inally agreed upon, and he was honest in
what he said. After a run of some tweuty-five
days he announced that we were approach
ing the Solomon Islands, and the men at
ouce made ready to carry out their further
One hundred miles southwest of San Chris
toval, w hich is the easternmost island in the
group, is a smaller group called the Little
Solomons. It was this group w were ap
proaching, and at that date no white man
hod set foot upon them. They were inhabited
by fierce and bloodthirsty natives, who com
bined piracy, wrecking aud fishing, and the
mate was for making for the other group.
He was overruled in this, aud when the brig
had hauled in until the land could be seen
from the deck the loug toat was got over
and loaded The men intended to play tho
port of castaways, and had a story all fixed
up. They erased the name of the boat, and
took nothing aboard which would lietray the
identity of the brig, which they meant to
scuttle. At noon, after working all the
morning, "they had loaded the boat with
whatever suited them, divided ut the sum of
t;iM found on board, aud weio ready to
bare holes iu the brig's bottom.
tor two days I bod been ill of fever and
confined to my batik. I knew from the con
versation around me what was going on, and
noon, wiien oue of the men brought me a
cup of gruel, he said we should soon be off.
Half an hour later the brig became no uuiet
that I grew afraid, and with grout effort
crawled on deck. The long lxat was a mile
away, with every man in it About four
miles to the went, coming up under a light
ureeze, was a uritish man-of-war. All soil
bad been taken off the brig, so that she was
simply drifting. It was the sight of the man-
oi-war which had hurried our crew off so
suddenly. In about an hour she came up,
aud, after a crew bad I wen put aljoard both
vessels, stoosl in and came to anchor in a bav.
and then boats were sent out for the muti
neers. ot even a sight of them was ever
obtained. Tea years later it was known that
they made a landing on one of the small
islands, were secreted by the natives untU the
ship sailed, and every one of them was then
knocked on the head for the sake of the
I was taken back to Sydney, and later on to

story was told and retold in the courts and
