DEEP SEA SAILORS
ARE DISAPPEARING
Few Traces Left of the Old Roistering
Life of Jack Ashore Shanghaing
and Fisticuffs Forgotten Occupa
tions. New York, Nov. 18 The American
sailor Is passing. Indeed he has al
most disappeared, and with him many
curious customs and practices of early
days. Shanghalng the practice of
obtaining sailors by force which un
der the less graphic name of Impress
ment, was thrt chief cause of the war
of 1812 with England, has been stamp
ed out except In rare Instances, its only
survival being found In the osier
fisheries of Chesapeake bay. There
the practice if .shanghalng has per
sisted, according to a writer In Ap
plcton's Magazine, to such an extent
that the matter has recently been
brought to the attention of the fed
eral authorities. Generally speaking,
however, the old school of American
sailors, together With the characteris
tic features of sailor life ashore which
gave picturesquencss to the water
front section of every port city, has
disappeared forever. In New York,
the greatest port In the country, where
once the pitfalls for Jack ashore were
myriad,- the number of shops and re
sorts conducted especially for the pur
pose of separating tars from their
money, is steadily diminishing.
Chiefly this is due to the change in
all conditions. While the sailor of a
century or half a century ago was a
skilled member of an exacting profes-
sion, ht is now. as a result or in gen
eral use of steam, merely a laborer on
water, needed only for the scrubbing
of decks, the polishing of metal, and
the handling of paint buckets.
Just where the term shanghalng got
its origin is a matter of dispute, but
the best authorities agree that It .enme
from the city of Shanghai. China.
When the far eastern trade was car
ried on by the fastest sailing ships
mon eon id build the famous "clip
pers" sailors were artists in their
professions and well paid. Shanghai
was one of the great ports and there
sailors after their long voyage wore
likely to dissipate their pay and fail
to report for the home voyage. As
the value of eastern cargoes depend
ed largely on prompt handling. the
practice anise in Shanghai of obtain
ing men to man the vessels by force
or trickery usually by the use of
drugs and drink and from this it is be
lieved came the term shanghalng.
ir, iv, ..1,1 flavs New York's watcr-
I front, calculated first to get the money
of Jack ashore and then to shanghai
1 him for the regular roe rormeny pam
I by captains, was the most picturesque
I and roisterous in the country. What
I is now the famous Bowery was then
Jack's special stamping ground, and
its deterioration is held to be largely
due to the disappearance of the typi
cal rtltl-timp sailor.
"The Bowery was once tho Fifth
avenue of the town." says the Apple
; ton chronicler, "but beginning on
' South street from coentles slip, up and
down the water front, the dives start -:
ed to creep in and fill the whole lower
east end of the Manhattan city. They
did not require much law in tnose
lurid, buxom years, and whatever hapi
pened that wasn't right was hidden
beneath the fog of navy cut. blown
up from Jack's Inevitable clay pipe,
and was drowned beneath the plunk-ety-plunk
of some yellowed and crack
ed ptano. Sailor men were more or
less of'a luxury in the late '0's. and
the police therefore let them alone.
That end of the big city was packed
full of the sea drift of the seven
oceans; Polacks and Swedes from the
north rubbed eblows with Chinks
from Hong Kong, by way of 'Frisco,
with 'smoker Irishmen. as the sailors
called he blacks from the Antilles,
with Hindoo coolies who had floated
from Suez up past Jopps, and Naples,
across Into the lower bay."
Tho old-time sailors' boaroin"?
houses or "places." as they were call
ed, all had their "runners' men sk:ll
ed in the game of attracting Jac'i
ashore, getting his money and then
drugging him and turning him over
to the captain of any vessel short of
hands. "A quarter century ago," sys
Mr. Lyon, "if you walked along the
shore front in Quebec or New York,
or New Orleans, or East street in
'Frisco, and happened to step in a
moment for a slug of whisky, you
were apt to wake up two days out
to sea with nothing but a pair of
shoes and a 'donkey's breakfast,'
which-, in the parlance of the sea dog,
is merely a straw mattress.
"Today all this has changed. Sail
ors' Missions are more popular than
might be thought, considering the
roistering spirit of the frequenters.
When Jack Is in port, no matter his
age, race, or religion, if he hasn't a
girl or a family, he is pretty apt to
turn up at the secretary's desk that
is, after his money has been spent
elsewhere in traditional pursuits. Snug
harbors, be It said, with their free
reading rooms and their beds and
their general assistance, seem to be
ideal places for the mariners to go to
when they cannot get in anywhere
else and are drifting rudderless
through the surge of the city. The
use of these Institutions Is not a
matter of religion with him so much
as it is the necessity of keeping body
and soul together. To accomplish this
bodily comfort he is willing to ' un
dergo a little temporary treatment for
his soul, if his benefactor insists up
on administering it.
"It' used to be different back In the
olden times. In the 80's and earlier,
when they shanghaied men off James
Slip, and when Catherine street and
Cherry and Roosevelt and Water
streets used to be filled with sailors'
boarding houses instead of with the
Yiddish sweatshops and the Italian
pickle venders of the present day. In
those times you couldn't walk north
on Water street of a balmy evening
without getting into a fight; every
door that was not a lodging house
door led Into a saloon and dance hall,
and upstairs they had an empty room
or two where a four-round bout
was always In progress, the men
before the mast always being great
fighters and loving to watch a little
harmless mill. You couldn't get a
job downstairs as waiter in the bar
room if you could not box, and you
certainly would not be able to hold
your job long If you could not box

BELCHING OUT SMOKE
Six Men at Least Are Dead and Prob
ably Many More.
Butte, Nov. 20 A fire this morning
in the fourth drift east from No. 2
slope of the Northwestern Improvement-company's
mine at Red Lodge,
has caused the death of six miners and
probably many more. About twenty
miners are entombed with a faint
chance for the escape of any of them.
The known dead are Samuel uppers
John Matson and Andrew Jokala.
Seven men were taken from me
,. ..-i,!.,.,,, at i r, m in a half-dead con
dition and are now in the hospital. Fire
department members and fifty volun
teers then started tho wonc oi nr.uc
and within half an hour ships were
running with rapidity down the fourth
entry and a hundred men were ioau-u
on cars and brought to the surface.
Manv of them were completely ex
hausted and lifeless.
Thoe rescued declared that there is
little hope for the greater number of j
those eniomoeo, oui mis w.m-i
shared by the mine officials.
Pit Boss William Haggerty, when
carried up in one of the skips was al
most overcome, but was restored by
physicians. He remained bravely at
his" post until the very last, in an en
deavor to save men and after recup
erating made frantic efforts to go back
Into the mine.
Everything within the vicinity of the
mine is in the wildest confusion. The i
fire i.x terrific tudcing from the Im- :
mense volume of smoke and fire emit
ted from the second entry.
a .-iroriii rheeU of the miners to
night shows three dead and six miss- j
ing. The missing miners . attempted ;
to escape by No. 2 entry, ana it is j
stated there is not a chance that they ;
have escaned. as in that portion of the I
mine the fire is raging fiercely. The
fire was Btarted by lights on tne caps
of the miners and tonight it was still
unchecked. The damage will be very
heavy.
