Honolulu Nov. 24-Lleutonant Com
mando! Lo Roy M. Garrett, captain
of tho U. S. Fish Commission S. S.
Albatross, which arrived in this port
about 10:30 o'clock this morning from
lokohamn, homeward bound, was
lost overboard at sea on the evening
of Wednesday last, November 21, at
The Albartross at tho time of the
accident was about five liundred miles
to the northwest of this, port and
going along at a good rate, about
cloven knots, undor full steam and
with all sail sot.
Tho weather had for somo time
been very squally but a comparative
moderate sea was running at the
time, tho heaviest seas coming' on tho
port beam whore tho only life boat
tho Albatross carries is located.
Captain Garrett was at tho time
siting in a deck chair on tho wcaChor
side of the poop. Tho painted canvas
dock was very slippery owing to tho
constant spray from the breaking
seas. Tho captain was alono on the
deck and thore was no one near him.
No one saw tho accident, but from
the indications, when the Albatross
gave an unusually heavy lurch both
tho Captain and the chair in which
ho was sitting must have been hurled
violently clear across the poop deck
from tho weather side to tho other
side, for the chair went right through
tho lattice work rail on the starboard
side. Tho chair with the captain in
it must havo skated across the slip
cry deck with great force to be driven
through tho rail.
It is impossible to say whether tho
captain was thrown under or over
tho rail. Stoppors of copper wire
holding the fabric of the rail woro
taken clean off or bent back by the
force ot the sliding chair and its in
There were a few officers on the
quarter-deck at the time and one of
them heard a faint cry of "Man over
board I" The surgeon later' heard
another cry of "Man overboard" and
It sounded to him as if it came from
forward. It seemed to the. (lector to
bo as much of a gasp as a cry and It
is believed that tho captain was
severely injured beforo ho fell into
Lioutenaut Hepburn, now In com
mand, who was in tho ward room
when the captain was thrown over
board, rushed on deck at tho cry of
"Man overboardl" Olhers on deck
were passing tho cry from ono(ond of
tho vessel to the other.
At this time no one aboard knew
who it was that had gone overboard!
All that was known was that some-
'body was overboard and everything
possible must be done to save 1 im.
First a lifebuoy was thrown astern
and one of the sailors remarked, as
ho threw it," that ho thought ho heard
a faint cry from that direction. As
soon as possible tho vessol was put
about, coming around in almost a
circle. At onco the searchlight was
brought into sorvico and tho Alba
tross moved 'about, throwing her
light in every direction, attempting
to locato the buoy in tho hopo that
whoever It was who had gono over
board would by this time havo hold
It would havo boon impossiblo,
considering that tho vessel's only
lifeboat was on tho weather side and
tho weatho was rough to have put
ths lifeboat into the water. Nothing
could bo seen of the life buoy, although
it must have dropped within two
hundred yards of whore the captain
fell. Tho Albatross stood by all night,
using her searchlight all the time and
her position at 6-30 o'clock in tho
morning showed that slie had varied
her position during the night very
little. Then all hope was eiven up
and tho Albatross sadly resumed her
voyage to this port.
It was not nbsolutoly known that
It was tho Captain who had been lest
until within about ten minutes after
tho llfo buoy was thrown, the crew
was mustored. Othor officers, to bo
sure noticed that tho captain was
not among them on tho deck and
feared that ho was tho one who had
gono overboard but since no one had
seen the accident, thoro was no
means of making sure until tho crow
Somo of those aboard the Albatross
when they first heard tho cry of
"Man overboardl" thought the sound
come from the engine room and rush
ed in that direction. Tho quarter
mastor head a cry from the poop
starboard rail, muffled and gnsping,
probably the cry of the captain as he
s'ruck tho rail, and ho re eated tho
cry and alarmed the ship. Tho pay
master, standing on the quarter
deck, heard the qHartormaster's cry
and repeated it lordly,.
In bringing the vessel about a lee
was made for the life-boat, but the
sea was too rough to get it away.
The sea was so full of whito caps
that It would havo been a difficult
matter to locate the white lifebuoy
In the glare of the searchlight' unless
the captain has been holding on to
the buoy. Thoro was no self-lighting
buoy aboard the Albatross.
Captain Garrett was a fairly good
swimmer, but the probability is'that
he was so severely Injured .in being
hurled across the deck that he coukl
uot reach the life buoy, oven if he
could have found it.
Captain Garrett was a nativo of
New York state. Ho was not mar
ried and was a man of about 49 years
of age. His mother ris living in
Plattsburg, Now York state. All
Captain Garrett had to do to be
ranked as Commander was to take
the examination and his commission
would have bceivdated from July 1 of
The Albatross came to port tlying
the captain's personal pennant and
the ensign both at half mast. Tho
flag at the naval station by order of
Admiral Vory, was half-masted when
the news was convoyed there. At
noon today seven minute guns wero
fired at the naval station because of
the death of Captain Garrett.
Tho Albatross sailed from Yokoha
ma on November 10. Slio had rough
weather all tho way here, but never
theless mado vory good time. She is
a ves9ul of the Fisheries Bureau In
command of naval officers. She left
San Francisco May 2 and is now end
ing one of tho most important scien
tific reseach voyages an Aplorlcan
vessol has over made. Sho has been
all through the Ajruttan Isluiuls and
waters of Japan, studying tho llfo of
the ocean and tho countries under
the ocean. Dr. Gilbert, In charge,
of the scientific business, was left In
Yokohama to complete certain work.
He will como through here on tho
next boat from tho Orient.
The Albatross is moored at the
naval wharf. The time of h'er de
parture for San Francisco tins not
yet been set.

Collector Stac'kable has been in
structed to look up labor conditions
in Spain for the purpose of ascertain
ing whether it seems feasible to o!
tain labor from that quartei Should
tU be possible, the planters would
have god enuso to rejoice, as this
class of laborers would be pnrticully
Thore is considerable sugar cano
raised in the southern part of Spain
particularly aYoui.d the town of Ma
laga, and, as tho industry is at pres
ent in a pretty bad way, it is report
ed that the laborers there might bo
Induced to leave for other and more
profitable fields. As those laborers
are skilled In the cultivation of cane,
and, above all, used to tho hard work,
required in the cane fields, they
would naturally be a most deslrab e
character of immigrants for Hawnii.
On tho other hand, this bright
phase of the situation is to some ex
tent darkened by the prospect of
possible difficulties in getting them.
Spain is not particularly friendly to
wards tho United States, especially
not since the recent war, and should
the Spanish government choose to
put obstacles in thet way of emi
gration, a thing which undor the
elaborate- passport system cf that
country Could easily be done, it would
bo practically useless and a waste of
timo to attempt to obtain the imml
Thoso circumstances explaiu the
fact that the Board of Immigration
has said but littlo about the matter
as it is quite possiblo that nothing
will come of it. However, Stack
ablo'h investigation will show whether
these laborers can bo obtained or not,
and should his report bo favorable,
it is firmly behoved that nn excellent
stroke of business will have been
