Brink's Sloop. 1EEBED BY THE MULTITUDE Even the Skipper's Wife Had No Belief in the Possibility of Steam Navigation. BY WILLIAM E. CCBTI8. Written for The Star and the Chicago RecordHerald. Mrs. Charles A. Spalding of this city, whose summer home Is at Saugerties-onthe-IIudyon, and other Daughters of the Revolution, not long ago inspired and assisted the local oracle of that historic section of New York to gather and publish its traditions and history from the first settlement about the middle of the seventeenth century. He has told how the ancestors of the present generation lived their simple and sincere lives; he has described their manners, customs, industries and pleasures; he has gathered up their ballads, folk-songs and nursery rhymes, anecdotes and narratives nf the Indian wan and the revolution. and has embodied a groat deal of valuable history from the local records, illuminated by the traditions that have passed down from memory to memory through many generations. No other part of America has known more stirring events. None has been the scene of more thrilling adventures and absorbing romance, and a valuable senvicehas been performed for the future as well as the present generation by Benjamin Myer Brink, the author. But what interests us most just at this time is his reminiscences of Robert Fulton and "The Clermont." the first successful steamboat. The estate of Chancellor Livingston. from which the steamboat was named, 1 5 .. ? ? V,. II.ulfAn !>,. nc"r? fuiMift mai |'(ii i ui nit; IIUW.HIII, aiMi 111c grandfather of the author was the captain of the boat. "Some time about the middle of the d -cade (1700-1800) Capt. Andrew Brink," he saya, "built a large sloop which he named for his favorite sister, 'Thn Maria.' His father had Instituted many years before the scow ferry wh'eh crossed the river from his door at the mouth of Sawyer's creek to Chancellor Livingston's, just opposite, and the son was born with a .love of the water. The Maria was thought by the people of those days a craft of wondrous size, and its owner immediately secured from the chancellor the transportation of the products of his manor nnd from other up-river towns, a most profitable trade. The Hudson Biver Skipper. "The captain of a Hudson river sloop before the advent of steam occupied a unique position.'' Mr. Brink observed. "He was the link, socially, between the river towns and eiti life. He was the business agent not only of the merchant, but of the farmer. He selected the merchant's stock: lie sold the farmer's products; he was the expressman; he carried the news; he matched the goods in the city from samples which the housewives of the river towns gave him: bore the messages of friendship and business with which he was intrusted at each end of his route; he was tlxj n'nlr>nm& or 11 ua f in tlia < 11 V" fa mi 1 i.>a nn which he called, to whom he told of their country friends, and through him the news of sorrow and bereavement of bis patrons or the tidings of their prosperity were conveyed. for he often carried the written missives as postman, but more frequently he was intrusted with the verbal message which bore the tidings of a sad death or burial; or was the happy messenger to announce a marital engagement of youthful lovers: or he bore the gossip of the river village he was asked to carry to city friends and relatives what had passed since the last voyage. "Once started on the voyage, the uncertainty of its duration was the most prominent feature. A sloop setting sail on an afternoon might have reached her desti u.ilioii <11 oaugt*i lies w ut-ii iiit. pasat*ii^fia awoke next morning. And. again, it might lie becalmed before Spuyten Duyvil was reached, and be a week on the trip up the Hudson. "As above stated, the sloop Maria carried much Af the produce of Livingston Manor. And during the ten years Capt. Brink sailed her Livingston was a frequent passenger. He had been experimenting with steam before he went as a minister to France in 1S01, and while there had been interested in the steamboat that Robert Fulton had out on the Seine in and which had broken dr.wn. The men became very intimate, and Fulton married a niece of the chancellor. So he came to be a frequent and welcome guest at Clermont, the home of Livingston. Conferences in the Sloop's Cabin. "In the cab'n of the Maria the chancellor and Fulton often discussed the problem of steam navigation as a quicker means of communication, and a more reliable power than wind, and around the captain's table talked over their plans, the obstacles encountered and the cause of their failures. On a voyage up the river the three decided to attempt once more to solve the problem and use every means to succeed. They went to work. Chancellor Livingston furnished the capital. Robert Fulton obtained from Scotland a Watt engine of twenty horsepower, with a copper boiler, which he adapted to his plans, while Capt. Brink s*-t about embodying his Ideas as to what the craft should be from his experience as a navigator of the Hudson. The latter part of the year 1S<>6 and until midsummer of 1807 were spent upon the boat and the engine, to the ridicule of many of the acquaintances of the captain in his home town. Even his own wife laughed at him, to which he replied that he would soon go to Albany in command of the steam craft, and stop opposite his father's place on the river and take her along. All she could say was: " 'When I 8?e you and Mr. Fulton driving n boat with H tea kettle I will believe it. "We will see how the captain's wife took har ride. The Memorable Day. "The morning of August 11, 1807. was bright and warm," continues Mr. Brinks. "At a uier In the harbor of New York ? i vessel waa lying which the events of that day were to make historic and the trip she was just to undertake would never be forgotten. A motive power would be utilized that day. which would change the face of all the earth, and would plow every sea. The craft that was l?lng at the pier that morning In the early days of the nineteenth century would have excited the contempt of those who saw the century's close. A long, narrow vessel, with two masts, on each of which was to be spread a sail; a low cabin on each side of the deck; somewhat forward of the center of the vessel a revolving wheel on either side with ten paddlt-s like the arms of a windmill, and these uninclosed in a wheel house, and on the pier a jeering crowd of spectators exchanging cheap witticisms with each other at the expense of Fulton, and his associates on board, silent but confident. "When the appointed hour had arrived the vessel was cast loose, and the scoffing crowd became quiet, for they saw her paddies revolve and the boat worked Its way out into the stream. Soon after reaching the middle of the river there was a break In the machinery, which occasioned alarm, and which took some time to repair. This was duly accomplished and the vessel proceeded slowly up the Hudson, and the crowd was quiet as the visionaries, with their Jeered-at boat propelled by a tea ketl tie. passed out of sight. "The trip excited great Interest along the river, and some alarm, especially at nlgbt, as it was thought to be a vessel on fire. Dry pine wood was used in the furnace, and its light illuminated the sky for miles. The boat left the pier In New York at 1 o'clock In the afternoon of Monday, Au??

The 110 miles had been covered In just twenty-four hours. Here the boat was anchored In midstream, and Fulton went ashore to spend' the night with Livingston, while Capt. Brink, at his father's on the opposite bank, at the mouth of the Saw creek, came to redeem his promise, and lake his wife to Albany in the boat driven by a tea kettle. Trip to Albany Completed.

Here they anchored for the night, and left for New York at 7 on Friday morning, which was reached at 4 that afternoon, or in nine hours, the whole return trip in eighteen hours of actual 1 traveling. Both on the trip to Albany, and on the return the wind had been dead ahead, and no benefit could be derived from the sails.

By the latter name she has always been better known. Care of the Boat. "The writer (Mr. Brink) has in his possession the following letter of instructions written to his grandfather by Robert Fulton: NEW* YORK. October 9, 1807. "Capt. Brink. "Sir: Inclosed is t'he number of voyages which is Intended the boat should run this season. You may have them published in the Albany papers. "As she is strongly man'd and every one except Jackson under your command, you must insist on each one doing his duty or turn him on shore and put another in his place. Everything must be Kept in order, everything in its place, and all parts of the boat scoured and ("loan. It is not sufficient to tell men to do a thing, but stand over them and make thenj do It.

"Your most obedient "ROBT. FULTON." The Hudson (N. T.) Bee in June, 1808, contains this interesting description of the boat: "The steamboat is certainly a curiosity to strangers.

The length of the boat is 160 feet, and her width in proportion, so as not to Impede her sailing. The machine which moves her wheels is called, we believe, the twenty horsepower machine, or equal to the power of so many horses, and is kept in motion by steam from a copper boiler, 8 or 10 feet in length. The wheels are on each side, similar to those on water mills, and are under cover; they are moved backward or forward, separately or together, at pleasure. Her principal advantage is in calms, or against head winds." Anthony St. John, thirty years old, to held in Southington, Conn., by the police cm a charge of assaut with intent to kill.

The following correspondence regarding the child labor provision of the sundry civil bill was made public at the White House today: February 21. 1!X)7. My Dear Mr. President: 1 have the honor to acknowledge the receipt this morning of your letter of the 20th instant, expressing your judgment that the investigations into the conditions of woman and child labor sltould unquestionably be made by the bureau of labor, l thoroughly agree with you in this conclusion, and In my several conferences with Commissioner Neill, the last one on yesterday, and also with Director North of the census bureau, it was decided that In order for the pioposed Investigation to produce practiea! results it should not be undertaken by the bureau of the ccnsus. which is not equipped to make researches of the kind contemplated, which will be largely sociological In their nature, but should be performed by the bureau of labor, which is the only bureau in this department fltted to properly make the Investigation. i nave ine nonor iuriner co huhsp you, .nr. President, that I accordingly addressed a letter to Hon. James A. Tawney, chairman of the committee on appropriations. House of Representatives (a copy of which is herewith inclosed), calling this subject to his attention. Very truly yours. OSCAR S. STRAUS. Letter to Tawney. The letter referred to follows: FEBRUARY, 21. 1007. Hon. James A. Tawney, House of Representatives, Washington, D. C. Dear Sir: In the sundry civil bill just reported to the House I note that the appropriation made for carrying out the in- | vestigation into the conditions of women and children wage-earners directs. In effect, the carrying out of this investigation under the bureau of the census. I feel that the Investigation directed in the act recently passed by Congress is not one that properly belongs to the bureau of census. It is not the kind of investigation that the census bureau is equipped to carry on and is outside the proper scope of census i work. The bureau of the census has just published a bulletin on child labor and is n>vrx*.t nnitiuh Another bulletin reflrardinz J women in Industry. Both these publications are exceedingly valuable, but they complete the investigation so far as the census methods are concerned. The further investigation directed by Congress is one which, both on account of its nature and the character of investigation required, belongs properly under the bureau of labor and not under the bureau of the census. Both the director of the census and th* commissioner of labor agree with me thoroughly in this view, and I feel that from every point of view it would be inadvisable and unfortunate to place work of this character upon the census bureau instead of leaving it to be carried on by the bureau of labor. I trust that the committee will see its way clear so to amend the provision of the sundry civil bill, making appropriation for investigating the conditions of women and children wage-earners, as to permit the de partment to nave me mvmisKuun wniru out by the bureau of labor with the cooperation of the bureau of census In any cases in which this co-operation can bo made effective.

The conditions have been complied with, and the association now holds the title deed to the property. In the rear of the large brick house are the work shops where the Inmates of the home are taught the various industries usual in an industrial home for the blind. The men make brooms, mattresses and cane chairs, while the women knit and sew, and all are able to read the books provided for them.
