lifebuoy from the ill-fated vessel and
small wreckage found on the beach
probably furnish thfe only details that
will ever be learned of the disaster
which destroyed the windjammer.
According to advices received by
the' marine department of the Cham
ber of Commerce, a Chilean schooner
arrived at Stanley, 'Falkland Islands,
last monthwlth two men on board
who were .returning from a , sealing
cruise in the cutter Caesare near the
Gulf of Sarmiento , to the north of
Cape' Pillar. They reported that in
latitude 52 8 south, longitude 75 58
west, they found a lifebuoy marked
in black letters, "Gulf Stream, Glas
gow?; a piece of boat planking print
ed -Gulf,"' five copper tanks from a
lifeboat water beaker, pieces of oars,
hatchet and boat hook; Y
, The men said the wreckage was not
much4 knocked about when they found
it December 15, and they thought it
bad not been oh the beach ; longer
than six weeks or two months. The
men had covered the same ground
six , months before; but there was "no
trace of the wreckage . at'; that time.
They searched around after finding
the wreckage, but saw no trace of any
living man having landed there: :
f The Gulf Stream, which made many
visits to the Golden Gate, left Glas

reported after she squared away.

. .Rufus Lyman appeared stunned by
the shock when he drew a penalty of
three years' im prison men tt Wednes
day at Hilo, after pleading guilty to
the charge of embeizlement. At least
that is the way If appeared to Assist
and Attorney General Arthur G.
Smith, who was in charge of the
prosecution. Mr. Smith returned from
Hilo this morning, leaving there
shortly after Lyman's sentence.
. He says that throughout the Inves
tigation preceding the hearing Lyman
appeared highly optimistic, and evi
dently imagined he would escape
with a fine. Smith said had he not
pleaded guilty, however, every one
of the eight indictments would have
been held against him. He says that
the charge" In each was just as
litrong, and believes the evidence was
just as incriminating as that to which
former member of the Hawaii license
commission entered his plea of
guiltyr.. ',-.,...
During his, stay, of about two weeks
at 'Hilo( the Assistant Attorney Gen
