For nearly 3000 miles 011 the way back from Sydney, firemen on tho Oceanic liner Sonoma lounged In their bunks ' and smoked and yarned, , while six husky stowaways did their work. Tho stow aways hnd been discovered by tho lire men soon after leaving Sydney, nnd the strangers wore given to under stand that if they kept quiet and did as they wore told they would not be turn ed over to tho ship's olilcers nnd put ashore. So the stowawnys turned to and shoveled coal" to beat the band." But at Pago-Pago Chief Engineer Lit tie, who happened to be in tho engine room nt 1111 inopportune time, discover ed tho trick, nnd the six strangers were unceremoniously hustled ashore, while tho designing firemen wore glvc extra duties and made to exert them selves. It was only by the utmost scheming on the part of the soldiering firemen that they were able to avoid their du ties on the long run from Sydney to Pago-Pngo. On the way tho steamer was In a terrific gale, when hard work was required In tho flrcroom, but the stowaways, under the direction of their supposed sympathizers, worked llko I Trojans at a task tlint nearly killed them. But visions of an easy escape Into United States territory buoyed j them up, nnd they laughed in tho midst or their trials. They wept later, when the cruel offi cers of the Sonoma sent them ashore at Pago-Pago with orders to thoagents of the company to send them back to Sydney. SAW KRAKATOA RUINS. dipt. Young of Elwell Saw Effects of Eruption. The ship Elwell, Captain Young, ar rived here yesterday morning from La halna, to undergo repairs for she is leaking: Captain Young wns In the Strnlts of Sunda In 18S1-2, a short time .after the catastrophe at Krakatoa. He washen enptnin of the ship Armenia. He states that when ho arrived on tho scene, 30,000 bodies of victims of the disaster lay rotting in the sun. Pumlco blown from Krakatoa reached Madagascar, 2700 miles to tho west ward. At Point Anjer, a fort with 230 Dutch soldiers disappeared and the- only life saved was that of a Malay woman who was found at Fourth Point, 43 miles away, lodged 1 nthe top of a tree and wonderful to relate, alive. One Immense lump of pumice land ed fourteen miles from Krakatoa, fly ing across the straits of Java, The explosion split the island of Krakatoa in two pieces. The anchorago an An jer which was formerly twelve fathoms deep is now bottomless. Three tidal waves rising about forty feet above the level of the sea caused tho terrible loss of life. NOT ALLOWED TO LAND. Tlioso who took passage for Sun Francisco by tho Alnmeda- will prob ably not be allowed to land in the city at all. Tho cable yesterday showed that no one was allowed to enter the city. Anyone might leave who wns able, but none could return. The military authorities have evi dently made an order absolutely pro hibiting anyone entering tho stricken region. There nre enough people to bo looked after on the peninsula of San Francisco now, nnd the military au thorities have evidently decided not to allow any more to go there. It seems likely that tho China, which should have arrived yesterday, was simply sent away,, and the Alameda may bo slmllrly treated.' TO SELL SECURITY.
