of tho ship, ablazo with its tier upon

CAPTAIN M. N. SANDERS DIES
AS STEAMER RAMS COLORADO
Bands Blare Strident
Tunes as the Veteran
Pilot Passes Away in
(From Thursday's Advertiser)
Whilo directing tho docking of tho
Hamburg-American steamship Cleveland
yesterday morning, nnd just as
tho liner swung in between the Alakca
wharf and tho cruiser Colorndo, Captain
Milton N. Sanders, veteran pilot,
fell to the deck. Five minutes later ho
died in tho chartroom back of tho
whcclbouse. Ho was pronounced dead
by the ship's doctor and Federal
Quarantine Physician Marshall. Captain
Dempwolf, commander of tho big
liner, immediately assumed command
and, judging that tho vessel's position
was a menace to the American cruiser,
.instantly ordered tho bow lines attached
to the wharf cast off and the engines
reversed. Ho was not in time, however,
to aert a collision of the two ships.
The cruiser was slightly injured.
Meanwhile, tho five hundred passengers,
tho crowds ashore and the officers
and men on the cruiser were unawaro
that Death had stalked upon the bridge
Df the incoming steamer and claimed
the lire or the man who was directing
tho vessel's course with its thousand
souls on board. Whilo the pilot was
dying tho band of the German ship
played upon the lower deck, alternating
with tho music of the Hawaiian band
on tho Alakea wharf, whilo from tho
deck of n distant cruiser canto also tho
lively notes of a popular air.
When it became known that the pilot,
the silver party committee, and recorder
of tho national association of silver
clubs, with headquarters in Wash-

OAPT. MILTON N. SANDEBS,
Pilot who fell dying on tho bridgo of
tho liner ns she
was ab'out to dock yesterday.
Tvhtun hundreds had seen only two hours
before mount tho gangway and greet
tho officers viith a hearty welcome to
Hawaii, was dead, tho music on board
was hushed and for a few moments tho
nojs stilled the animated conversation
of the passengers who lined tho rails
fcagorly scanning the first American
shore thoy bad seen sinco leaving New
York. But the music on the wharf and
on tho cruiser was not silenced
Pilot Was Nervous.
Captain Sanders was nervous when
ho took charge of the vessel after tho
anchor was hoisted nt quarantine. Ho
paced tho bridce but his replies to tho
officers' questions or remarks wero
Miort. After passing tbo lighthouso
the Cleveland was directed in a diago
nal courso towards the Alakca wharf,
which caused mo great uuik or tne
Cleveland to pass across the stern of
tne uolorado, moored at tho Richards
street wharf. Tho vessel wont
ahead blowly. It was tho same cuurse
which Captain Sanders took when ho
was in charge of the T. K. K. linor
Shinjo Maru when her bow crushed into
Captain Dempwolf ttood on tho starboard
end of tbo bridgo and saw the
CIo eland swinging dangerously close
to tho cruiser's stern. Ho walked over
to where Captain Sanders wns standing
and suggested that tho two vessels wore
too chose for comfort. Captain Sanders
went over to the starboard end nnd
looked over the side. Ho apparently
realized for tho first timo how far tho
big liner had beon swung by tho southerly
wind in tho direction of tho Colo
rado, for ho turned swiftlv to crivo nn
order. Suddenly, his ace grow white,
una witn a laint cry, ho exclaimed:
"Captain, I'm dizzy I"
Died Behind tho Wheel.
Captain Sanders plunged forward, his
head striking a stanchion, and bo
crumpled to tho floor of tho bridgo,
Chiof Officer Kruso and F. W. Klebabu,
shipping managor of II. Hackfeld L Co.,
rushed forward and caught the' fallen
man beforo his body had cntirolv sot-
tied upon tho deck. They removed his
collar, opened his shirt and cased his
ooay, mcanwniio despatching a messenger
for the ship's physician, Tho chief
omcer and Air. Jtlebnbn then lifted tho
stricken captain and carried him into
the chnrthouse directly back of tho
wheelhoimo and laid him upon tho
floor, A messago was sent to Dr.
Marshall to como to tho chartroom.
Ho was talking with tho purser whon
summoned. Upon looking at Captain
Sanders ho was convinced that tho pilot
was dying. Tho captain gaspod and
groaned, but novcr regained consciousness.
Six minutes after collapsing ho
was dead. Doctor Hodgins, who had
gono aboard with tho Sbriner's commit,
teo, upon hearing of the tragedy wont
to tiffer assistance, but at tho entrance
to the room was informed by Dr, Marshall
that the pilot had pasted away.

nnd continued in the servico until
his death. Ho was sixty-two years of

"Tho after three-inch gun of tho
Colorado was not damagod by tho
Clovclnnd, and tho divers report tho
propollcr only slightly bont," snid
Captain Gill, commander of tho United
States cruiser Colorndo yesterday afternoon.
Further than that Captain Gill
would mako no statement, saying he
had roported fully to tho flagship.
NAvul divers wero at work during
tho greater part of the day making a n
careful examination of tho port propeller
of the cruiser. That tho gun wns
not damaged iB wondered at for tho
entiro weight of tho Cleveland .vhich
is registered at 17,000 tons, seemed to
havo been swung upon tho muzzle of
the rapid firo piece.
When tho Cloveland steamed diagonally
across tho storn of tho Colorudo a
on the way to tho Alakca whurf, tho
bluejackets lined the rails and watched
tho towering bulk of the Btcamcr ni it
came cloBer and closer to tho fighting
ship. Just at tho timo Pilot S.iudcrs
collapsed upon tho bridgo of tho Gorman
ship, tho officers on tho do-!k of
the cruiser called out to tho officers
on the bridgo of tho Cleveland.
The Captain's Shirt.
At thnt inBtnnt tho passongors who
were lcanintr ovor tho rails saw a figure
in whito run down tho deck of the
cniiBcr. It wns a man in white duck
trousors and nn undorshirt, trying to
got a whito jacket over bis shoulders
as ho ran. As ho tugged ho shouted,
"Keep nway, you're getting on our
propellers!" Tho jacket was finally
pulled over tho shouldera nnd tho shoulder
straps showed tho four stripcB of n
captain of tho navy. It was Captaiu
Gill, who hail beon below decks and
was hurriedly called to the deck to bco
tho danger his ship was in.
When Captain Dempwolf renched
the end of tho bridgo after ordering
tho bow linos caBt off and the engines
revorsed, Captain Gill, in n voice that
needed no megaphone to convey what
he meant, yelled to the Captain of the
"Itevcrae hor, rovorso her right

"I'm doing that," replied Captain
Captain Gill looked ovor tho sid" of

to raise tho pqrtholo plato out of

It certainly sccmod as if the Gorman
ship hnd rested a part of her bulky
hull upon tho port propollcr. At that
moment the Cleveland began going
astern, but us she did so, eho swung
ovor toward tho cruiser and cntno in
contact with tho muzzlo of tho rapid
fire gun which was luckily pointing
stcrnward. Tho paint on tho sido of
tho Cleveland came off in wide black
ribbons as tho vessel wont back and it
scorned that tho gun would break, or
causo tne plates -to bond, or bo pulled
out of tho stanchions which held it to
tho deck in the captain's cabin, Tho
gun held, however, nnd then quickly
tho linor swung away. tho
Captain Dempwolf went far astern,
and maneuvered his vessel until tho
boat was bow pointed directly into
Alakca Blip, when he ordered tho vessel
ahead. He brought the liner up to tho
Alakea wharf as if ho was used to doing
that every day in tho year, no dis
played seamanship which brought him
tho congratulations of many people tho
along tno iront.
Should tho Colorado's propeller be a
little out of true, it will causo tho
cruiser's port.engino to "knock," nnd
will handicap hor in nil maneuvers.
