The British Steamship Tnwnen firings In the
Crew and Passengers of the Tern PeerhUl,
Which Was Abandoned on Dec. 13 in a
Storm 600 Miles Northeast of Bermuda.
The British steamship Pawnee arrived In
port yesterday morning from Gibraltar, bring

sengers of the three-masted topsail sohoonsr.
Doerhlll ot St. John, N- B., which' was aban
doned In a eaio on Deo. 12 about 000 miles
northeast of the Bermudas. The Dcorhlll was
leaking badly and 'had lost her rudder. 'Tho
Pawneo stood by her for tour days in halt a
hurricane, hoping to save her.' But hawsers
were snapped In pieces like twlno and tho best
Capt Aitkenbead of tho steamship could do
was to save the) eight men and two girls from
the disabled schooner. The girls wero Louise
Burns, tho Captain's daughter, and Hazel
Merritt tho daughter ot one of the schoonor's
oirners. They were taken off the Deerhlll In
a sea that tossed hor about llko a cork and
swept her deck ot a load ot lumber and nearly
everything that could be torn away. Through
it'all tho plrls nover showed the white feather.
When they were safe aboard tho Pawnee they
brokodown. The men saved from the
schooner are Capt 0. W. Burns, Mito John
Cook, Second Mate Albert Burns, Steward
JphnWheatcn and John Griffiths. Hans Nil
son. Harry Volt and James MoDonald. able
The Deerhlll sal.ed from St John for San
tos. Brazil, with a cargo ot lumber on Wednes
day morning, Nov. 23, Tho foe was thick, but
tho wind moderate. The breezo tteshened
after a day or two. And by Saturday night was
blowing a calo from tho sou'east During tho
night the gale Increased, and on Sunday morn
ing was blowing a hurricane. ThU was tho
storm that sent tho coastwlso steamer Port
land to tho bottom off Cape Cod and covered
the New England coast with wrecks. Capt.
Burns had to keep his vessel flying before the
wind. Toward ,noon It was found tthat tho
Deerhlll had sprung n leak, and tho men wero
sent to the pumps. Tho gale Increased lc fury
and in tho mlddlo ol the afternoon' the seas
swopt ovor the schooner, carrying away tho
after deckload of lumber. For two hours she
lay In the trough ot the sea, while the wind
hauled around' from scu'sou'west to west nor'
west Three tremendous seas broko over the stern
on Monday. The Captain and 8eaman Griffiths
were at tho wheel. The second wave sent
them sprawling upon the deck, and the wheel
had to be abandoned. The third carried away
a small boat and stove the skylight, flooding
the after cabin. All day long the Deerhlll ran
before tho wind under baro Doles. Toward
evening the gale moderated a bit and the
vessel was brought to under a close reefed
mainsail. 'Tho wind hauled around again to
the sou'weat The men never elt the Dumps for
twenty minutes, tor tho water was pouring Into
the hold. Day after day the galo kept. up.
running around the compass from sou' west to
west nor'west The crew had no obanco to
nloep. With the ship halt tho tlmo on her
beam ends and the lumber flying over the
decks, the men wero-lucky to keen their bones
whole. The girls looked after themsolvet in
On the second Saturday out the upper and low
er.irons of the rudder gave way and the rudder
hung on the middle Iron, almost useless. The
mate took his bearings as best he could, and
reckoned that the Bermudas were (586 miles
away, bearlng.west-son'wenu The schooner's
course, woe laid for. tho Bermudas, with tho
hope fhaktaBTujbr.rnjfd
until she rVached there. The wind had mod
erated, .but the seas were still running hlso.
This did not last lone however. Another gale
came up on Sunday. Increasing In force. On
Wednesday morning the rudder broko oft In
the stock, In sujh a sea it was Iranossiblo to
rig up a jury rudder, and so the vessel was put
before the wind, the bead' sails being used to
keep her on her course. Capt. Burns hoped
that the gale would moderate so that ho could
rig np a.rudder and make the Bermudas, but
lnntoad its fur increased day by day.
The Pawneo. which left 'Gibraltar on the
night of Nov. 25, bound for New York, and
had been fighting westerly and nor'westerly
gales ana terrlfla head seas for days, sighted
thedlsabled.Dearhlll on tho morning of Thurs
day, Doc H. Mate George was on the bridge
of the steamer. He bore down. and. peine
close enough to speak her. learned the schoon
er's condition. Cant. Burns wanted his ves
sel towed to Bermuda, but the steamship peo
ple were unwilling at first offering Instead to
take hor into this Dort. Finally It was de
cided to send a boat to the Deerhlll. and tho
pinnace was lowered.
The sea was running mountain high, but
Mate Georse and four pien got off safely and
fought their way to the schooner. A big wave
struck them and almost stove the boat, but
they managed to clamber aboard the Deerhlll.
It was agreed between Capt Burns asd Mate
George that the Pawnee' should tow tho
schooner to the Bermudas If possible. The
gale Inoreased, and the mate concluded it
would be wise to wait for a lull before going
baok to the Pawnee. But night oeine ana the
weather was as bad as over. The mate hailed
the Pawnee,
"Shall I stay aboard until morning?" he
shouted, '
. "Stay aboard," answered Capt Altkonhead,
"I'll stamfby."
As the Pawnee's pinnace was being taken
aboard the Doerhlll a sea struck It and carried
it. away. The tiro vessels were tossed about
all night by the Increasing erne. In the morn
ing an attempt was made from the Pawnee to
get a line to the schooner. One of the steam
fir's seamen climbed t the masthoad with a
kite and let It go. The gale destroyed it.
Lines wero thrown from the Deerhill when
ever she came near enough to the steamer, but
they didn't; reach. Finally, during a tem
porary lull In the tempest a bupy and hawser
were thrown over from the Deerhlll and Second
Mate Gibson and four men went after It from
the Pawnee in a small boat. The line was taken
aboard the steamer. It was a 2!0.fathom
hawser. It was lengthened by seventy-fire
fathoms ot new hawser and a sixty-fathom
ohatn. Tho chain was made fast to the
schooner's wlndlass-and a bridle was ringed
up on the steamer's stern. The Pawnee
started ahead at half speed. One bridle line
parted and the steamer lay to while another
lino was bent. Then Mate George and his
boat's crew returned to the steamer. hlch got
under way again, laying her course for Ber
muda, but at night the storm freshened and
the new hawser parted,
n "I'll stand by until daylight" signalled the
The schooner hoisted close-reefed mainsail.
The Pawneo stood off and on during the night
and in tho .morning spoke the schooner. Cant.
Burns declared his intontiou of abandoning
her at the first opportunity.-..
. But before nlaht was over.ne feared that he
had lost the Pawne. . Uerjlglits disappeared
to the windward, and so fierce was the gale
that Capt Aikenhead of the steamship thought
It wise to drop off to a safe distance. In the
morning he came baok. ijspt. Bums signalled
that he would wait a little longer. On Sun
day morning the gale moderated, and he de
elded then to abandon ship. He poured oil on
the water, and they lowered hie lifeboat

himself on the witnoss stand the prosecution
wID call tho daughter of-Mrs. Margaret Gaw

supplied the prosecution with an account
ot some ofMooro's doings that will provo

was informed yesterday, on very cood author
ity, that Moore intendod to testify in his wife's
detencc. In that case tho prosecution will bo
enabled to call the daughter ot Mrs. Gaw. Ao
cording to the statement made by the woman,
who says she Is Moore's wife, she and Mooro
wont to sohool together in Cleveland. She lost
Sight ot him for some time after that, until sho
received word that ho was in Now York.
Throe years ago she and ber mother moved
hore and Moore came to llvo with them-Mrs.
Gaw soon after this was led by both ot them to
believe that her daughter had becomo Mooro's
wifo. Moore took the girl to London finally,
promising to marry hor when they got there.
They remained five weeks in London and
Moore induced her to go to South Africa with
him, where he snld they would cot married and
settle down. They took the Castle lino ot
steamers to Cape Town, and for two wecHs
stopped at 8ortals, a watering place near thore.
At the end of that tlmo they wont to Long's

says, tho two were finally married.

riving there Moore got an introduction to him.
and also presented Barney to his wifo. Moore
then explained to ber that he was In a desper

ten minutes' work they would bo able to get
JO0.0O0 out ot Barnato. He then explained
to her the same game that was tried on
Martin Mahon nt the Grenoble. His wife
refused to be an accomplice In tho crime, nt
which ho exclaimed. "What do you suppose
I'm supporting you for?" and pulled out a. re
volver, with which ho threatened to shoot her.
But tho girl dolled him and Mooro weakened.
Three days later Mooro deserted her and dis
appeared, leaving his wife penniless. A sub
scription was taken tor her and she was sent
back to London. While sho was at the Victoria
Hotel there Moore called onher and she con
sented to go back to htm. He was living then
at tho Charing Cross Hotel.
Eld McCoy, the pugilist was at the .same
hotel. It was reported that ho had considera
ble money with him and Moore decided upon
him as one of his victims. He got McCoy into
the. room, but his.. wife refused to assist him
and McCoy knooked Moore-out. Mooreilias a.
broken noso and a ecar on. hi noad which
McCoy inflicted by striking him with his own
Mrs. Moore left hor husband immediately
after and cabled her mother for money with
which to return home. Sho went at once to
Cleveland and heard nothing moro -of Moore
until the beginning of his trial here. The wo
man has copies ot aomo Johannesburg news
papers in wbloh appears tho account of.
her dilemma .In that place when Moore
left her, and tho names ot those who
befriended her. She also says that bofore tbo
attempt was made to get money, from Barnato
Mooro went out ono night and returned very
much excited with a handkerchief out into a
mask and, throwing himself lntoaohalr. ex
claimed: Therol I told you I would get

Moore he had left Johannesburg, and tbo mys
tery was nover solved.
