PUMPS AT WORK.
The New York Can Be
Cleared of Water.
DIVERS MAKE A REPORT.
Two Holes in the Vessel's Bottom
CAN SHE BE MADE TO FLOAT?
An All-Important Question Which
\\ ill Be Definitely Decided To-
Day— Wind Didn't Blow.
It is just as Impossible to foretell the
fate of the steamer City of New York as
it is to prophesy the chance of the rich
man for entering the kingdom of heaven.
At 9 o'clock yesterday morning the clerk
of the weather at Point Reyes announced
that a 24-knot breeze was blowing in his
locality, and every tugboat captain, able
seaman and ordinary citizen interested in
affairs at I'oiut Bonita shook his head
dolefully and said, "She's a goner now."
But the City of New York was not a
"tuner." She poked her black prow
saucily into the rising breakers and
cleaved them in twain with the same solid
resistance of the Seal Kocks or Point
Shius in the offing jumped up and down

eea outside the bar, but only long, low
swells reached the wrecked steamer and
spent their fuiy on the beach rather than
on the helpless vessel.
Several old salts looked knowingly at
the distaut horizon and said the air smelt
ct BO a' wettors, and that thera was no tell
ing what a day might bring forth. Up to
5:30 o'clock in the afternoon the day had
not brought forth anything but a fog bank
and a promise of rain, and Captain Gray
of the red stacks. Captain Wrutelaw ami
the Pacific Mail officials said "it ts good."
If the presence of official dignity could
have raised the New York there is uu
doubt but that she would be safely in the
drydock long ere this. Vicp-President
Crocker was on board at an early hour, as
was Agent Alexander Center and Lieuten

the opinion that a preponderance of such
weighty testimony as he might be able to
impart should best be delivered on dry
land and after the steamer was safely
floated for fear that it might sink her. But
Lieutenant Schwerin is working in the in

it be said that he is doing the very best
that he knows lov.-.
Too much praise cannot be tendered
Captain Whitelaw and Captain Gray ior
the systematic and determined manner in
which they have carried out their plans to
save the ship. So successful have they
been that early yesterday morning, when
the pumps were all set to work, the water
was so far lowered in her hold that her
buoyancy caused her to move on her cradle
A Call reporter vi-:t*d the wreck on
the tug Hfrcuie?, which left the Red
(Stack's dock at 1:03 o'clock. When the
Hercules came alongside the steamer two
of the big pumps were working. The one
forward, used to pump through the main
hatch, was throwing a copious stream of
water over the port sidp. The pump just
forward of the mainmast was also working
in full blast.
Eight pumps in all will be used, and
when tbese are operated in unison then it
is expected that the vessel; will rise slowly
from the rocks and can be pulled off by the
As the hour for high water large ap
proached everything was not in readines*
and it was decided to postpone the great
effort for the New York's life until this
"1 don't think there will be any trouble
in pumping her clear when we get all the
pumps to working," said Captain Gray,
"bnt I cannot say anything about the pos
sibilities of saving her. It would not look
Tight for me to express myself offhand."
It is evident, however, that Captain (Jray
thinks that there is a good chance to save
"I don't believe I ever saw a more
favorable continuance of weather," lie
added, "and ttie success of our efforts will
depend a great deal on whether the sea
remains smooth. No, Ido not think there
are any indications of a heavy blow, but
then one never can tell."
Divers worked all the forpnoon over the
port side of the steamer. After an exam
ination held under great difficulties, owiug
to tte swell and currents, two boles were
located. The report was made that the
vessel instead of resting on a pinnacle of
rock is between two blind ledges, which
hold her as in a vise. One of the holes
mentioned Is in the shade of a T. It is
about 82 inches in length and about is
inches across the arm. The other break is
mbout 13 by 18 inches in size. These holes
are not broken entirely through the plates,
but are dented in after the fashion of a
hole broken in a tin can by a blow from a
• harp-pointed instrument. The diveis'
duty was to plug these dents with blanket*,
which task was partially accomplished.
Blankets are used for such work, because
canvas or any cloth of a smooth texture
would clip through and not hold to the
ragged edge of the plates.
There is a great diversity of opinion as
to whether more than these two holes
■exist. Some think that numerous small
Dunctures have been made alDui; the ship's
Though none of those engaged in trying
to save the steamer admitted it, it was
learned from good authority that so far as
clearing the steamer of water Is concerned
this could be done in four hours' time with
only the pumps now in position working.
If such is the rase, the next great difficulty
which presents itself is. how to keep the
plugs from being sucked through the
breaks. The immense pressure upon them
can easily be imagine'!.
From one of the wrecking crew It was
Seamed that the divers reported that the
dents amidships were clear of the rocks

a glancing Damp as the steamer slid up on
The oow and stern of the New York do
not overhang the rocks to any great extent
is the belief of the wreckers and now that
it is calculated that she is not held in place
by a blind pinnacle rock the chances for
slipping her off are greatly enhanced.
The Hwrcules returned to the city at
about 4 o'clock to get one of the big pumps
from the Southern Pacific creek ferry
slip. This was the last pump that bad tn
be put aboard. She returned about 5:30
o'clock with Captain Gray. who was to
stay on board the New York till all ar
rangements were perfected for the night.
Several Italian fishermen have con
structed a camp on the little beach just
below the Point Bonita light. They have
been reaping a harvest by picking up

duty and are of great service in carrying

Suppose the ocean in the vicinity of the
i north heads were to suddenly run dry,
1 leaving the rock upon which the City of
| New York :s held fast exposed from its
I base to its summit, one would probably
find it to oe a bluff mass of headland,
joined to the main shore by a narrow strip
lof rock. According to the bydroeraphic
chart, sounding marks do not convey an
accurate idea of the immediate vicinity
! of the reef on the shore side, but accurate
> soundings of the channel south of tbe
point have beeu made. Boatmen and
fishermen say that the south side of the
reef is formed in a series of .steep steps,
which terminate in an almost perpendicu
: lar bluff, which fronts on about twenty
: fathoms of water.
There are probably twenty fathoms east
of and seventeen fathoms north of where
: the New York lies In mid-channel and
toward the Whale's Head a sixty-fathom
line will scarcely find bottom.
The top 'in the reef is divided into two
jutting points or peaks; between these the
wrecked ship is supposed to rest. In re
gard to these two peaks some of the boat
'■ men say that there is some dnubt. They
: think that there are two separate rocks, as
I soundings have been made by them and
1 deep water can be found between the
: points. This iatter theory does not seem
praciicabie. Soundings in the -vicinity of
the wreck with anything but improved ap
paratus would be difficult on
aecunt of eddies and currents.
The length of the rock on which the New
Y^rk rests is roughly estimated to be about
Close to where the steamer lies is a great
hole scooped out by the tides, ami, if she
were successfully hauled off and should so

Many strange suggestions for saving the
steamer l;avt« been made. One erratic
genii's thought it would be well to fill the
steamer full of lumber. He did not say
how he was going to get his lumber out of
the lower hold.
fishermen suggest that two large barges
be towed alongside at low tide; ttiat
chains be placpd under the steamer and
when the tide rises let it bring the big
mass of iron and cargo ud with it.
It is to be presumed, however, that men
of Captain Wnitelaw's experience with
wrecked vessels and Captain Gray's prac
tice ivitn tnzboats know what is best to
be dene. Whether or not they will save
the vessel remains to be seen and it
would be unwise to make any positive
statements either one way or the other
from the summing up of the situation of

How It Is Viewed by a
APPROVED BY GERBERDING.
Surmises as to the Management of
the Pacific Bank While in Pro
cess of Liquidation.
Since the publication of tbe letter ad
dressed by R. 11. McDonald Jr. to Attor
ney Frank M. Stone, renewed interest has
been aroused in tbe affairs of the Pacific
It is asserted by interested parties that
in abandoning what the board of direct
ors has asserted was its right in winding
up the bank's business, the McDonalds
hope to influence the Bank Commissioners
in the selection of permanent officers.
Two plans, covering partly the same
ground, but differing in detail, have been
S suggested. One slate which was discussed
i on California and Pine streets yesterday
! began with the removal of H. I. Willey as
receiver, W. T. Baggettas attorney and J.
E. Farnuin as chief accountant, and the
substitution of Alfred Bannister as re
ceiver and of Dunne «fc McPike and Frank
M. Stone as joint counsel. No man was
named as Mr. Famum's successor. The
other arrangement suggested was that the
Hank Commissioners should personally
direct the winding up of the affairs of the
institution without the aid of the receiver
or other deputy with Frank M Stone as
geneml solicitor to manage the legal affairs
and Dunne & MiTike as associate attor-
1 neyg for the court work, and with J. E.
Farnum retained in his present capacity.
Bank Conimis^iouers Albert Gerberding
■ and O. 11. l)unMiioor returned from Los
i Angeles last evening. Mr. Gerberding
j talked with a Call reporter regarding
! the position to be taken by the commis
sioners and stated that there wan only one
stand to take, namely for the commission
ers to take charge of the Pacific Bank at
! once and settle its affairs as speedily and
j economically as possible.
"Who will probably be the permanent
receiver?" he was asked.
"Considering the turn of affairs I think
iit likely there will be no receiver. The
i commissioners will take direct charge and
conduct the business merely with the aid
of the necessary clerical force," replied
"i he bank directors waive their right to
name th» personnel of this force. Will
the commissioners avail tbeuiselves of
"That is a matter of little moment, and
the patronage will cut no figure. Our only
desire is to settle down to work without
delay and thus avoid unnecessary ex
penses that will attend further delay."
"How about the matter of the injunc
tion which is to come up before Judge
Ilebbard <>n Friday?"
"1 think now that this matter may be
brought to Judge Ilebbard's notice before
then aud disposed of at once."
Mr. Gerberding said further that he con
sidered Mr. McDonald's propos'tio n very
fair and reasonable, one that left no alter
native but its acceptance, lie was well
pleased that more costly and useless lit
eation would be avoided, and thought that
he expressed the sentiments ot his official
associates. The course to be taken by the
Commissioners however, will be settled
at a meeting to be held to-day.
Acting Receiver Will ey stated yesterday
that such a condition as that entailed by
the Pacific Bank's peculiar suspension had
not been anticipated in the act creating
the Bank Commission, which was not
equipped to assert its rights. He and his
friends nad taken tbe necessary legal steps
in support of the Commissioners, who had
