Handsomest Snip to the Harbor- Captain Ster-
"ling's SloryorHow He Outwitted
Of nil tbo deep water wesels in
Honolulu harbor to day, none can
tell a more interesting story of
'adventure-at sea than the spick
and span American chip Great
Great Admiral arrjvad in this
port early Saturday miming, 49
days from Newcastle with 1980
tons of coal, haviug experienced a
pleasant voyago from Australia.
Oaptain Stirling was master of
a wind jammor at 18 years of age,
has weathered many u howling
storm in many ships, has boon
shipwrecked, and, if he woie not
so modest, could tell many excit
ing tales of the ocean's perils.
Tbo Great Admiral was the last
boat to leave Manila harbor, pre
vious to the entranco of Admiral
"When Been by a Bulletin re
porter in his elegantly appointed
cabin, aboard tbo handcoma vessel,
this morning, in rolation to tho
Manila episodo, Oaptain Sterling
"To be brief, tho trouble com
menced iu Manila when I got
loaded up and wanted clearance
papers. Tho authorities informed
mo of war having beon declared
between tho United States and
Spain and that they, would hold
mo in port and eieze my cargo. I
saw everybody conaeruod and
after much trouble I was given
24 hours to get to sea.
" 1 lost no time in quit
ting tho harbor, but
soon discovered that n Spanish
gunboat wsb following aud cir
cling around tho Groat Admiral.
This was early in the morning
and I did not fear tho Spaniard
as I bad been given a whole day
to get away in. Whou night fell
the warship was shut out from
sight and 1 immediately brought
the ship about so that she doubled
on her traoks. Afterwards, it was
ovident that the Spaniard intend
ed to captoro the Great Admiral
after tho 24 hours grac had ex
pired; but they lost in in tho
dark and I sailed with all possi
bio epood to Hongkong."
Tho Groat Admiral got to New
York late in tho fall of last year,
whence she wont to Boston, sail
ing from that port for Brazil and
Oaptain Sterling's list voyage
lasted 14 months; the captain al
ways takes his wife and three
little children witn him on his
trips and they live ou the water
most of the time. Mrs. Sterling's
sister, Miss Lena Watt, is also on
the Groat Admiral this trip.
The oabios are models of cozi
ness, comfort and cheerfulness;
altogether the Great Admiral's
largo size, handsome model and
general appointments make her
the pride and envy of the harbor.
