EFFORTS AT EESCUE. Alt DIenilons Were Forcot ten and tbe Sa tires Were Foremost In Heroic Attempts The Ono Officer Saved From the Eber Procresa of tbe Hnrrlcane. Hundreds of people trere'on the beach by this time and the work of destruction had occurred in full Tiew of them all. They stood for a moment appalled by the awful scene, and then a cry of horror arose from the lips of every man who had, seen nearly & hundred of his fellow creatures perish in an instant. Then, with one accord, they all rushed to the water's edge nearest the point where the Eber had foundered. The natives ran into the surf far beyond the point where a white man could have lived, and stood waiting to save any poor creature who might rise from the water. There was no thought of the war between Germany and Samoa. There was no sign oj enmity against the people who had car ried off their king and banished him on a lonely isle a thousand miles from his native land. The savage forgot the oppression which a civilized people placed upon him, and he now held out his hand to save a human life, caring little whether it was that of a friend or a foe. An Officer's Miraculona Escape. As first it seemed as if every man on the ill-fated steamer had gone to his death, not even a hand appearing from the berths where the Eber sank. But the breakers on the reef had hidden a few struggling men who had-come to the surface ana struck out ieebly for the shore. Presently a man who had not been noticed before was seen cling ing to the piling under a small wharf near by. Willintr hands soon grasped him and drew him upon the shore. He was a young man with a handsome, boyish face and wore the uniform of an officer. He proved to be Lieutenant Gaedeke, and he was the only officer of the Eber who was saved. He was in a dazed condition and unable to realize his escape. Lieutenant T. G. Fillette, the marine officer of the Nipsic, who has been in command of the guard atthe AmericanJCon aulate for several months, took the German of ficer by the aim, led him to the Consulate and provided him with dry clothing. Fonr sailors from the Eber were seen strag gling in tbe water near shore abont the same time. They were quickly rescued by natives and also taken to the American Consulate. None of them seemed to know how they es caped. Tbey felt themselves at the surface of tbe water and were soon grasped by natives and taken ashore. Only a Few Were Saved. There were 6 officers and TO men on the Eber when she struck the reef, and of these 5 officers and GO men were lost. lieutenant Gaedeke, the survivor, was almost heart broken over the sad fate of nls fellow officers and men. He stated that be was officer ot the watch, ana was on the bridge when the Eber went down. All the officers were below, aud were possibly crushed to. death. Soon arter the steamer sank be found himself floating on the water, and without being aware of any effort on his part drifted ashore, and was savei It was about 6 o'clock in tbe morning when the Eber foundered. Durinc the excitement attending that calamity the other vessels had been for tbe moment forgotten, but it was soon noticed that the position of several of them had become more alarming. The Adler had been swept across the bay, being for a mo ment in collision with the Olpa. She was now close to the reef, about 200 yards west of the point wbere the Eoer struck. She was ap proaching her doom broadside on, and in half an hour she was lifted on top of the reef and turned completely over on her side. Nearly every man was thrown into the water. One Fortunate Feature. Fortunately, however, the Adler was thrown so far up on the reef that when she turned over on her side nearly tbe entire hull was out of .water. Her deck was at right angles with the water, and was facing the shore. Consequently that portion of tbe vessel was well protected from tbe storm. Most of the men who were struggling in the water had but a few feet to swim to reach the deck, where they clung to the guns and masts In safety. Of the ISO officers and men aboard, 20 men were drowned or killed when the steamer cap sized. Allot the officers, including Captain Fritz, who was in command of the German squadron, were saved. Many on the Adler were badly injured, amonc them being Captain Fritz, who rerelved a severe shock and a num ber of cuts and bruises. The natives stretched a rope from the shore to tbe deck of the Adler during the day, and a number of sailors escaped in that way. But the rope parted before all had quit the vessel, and the others were not taken off till next day. They clung to the wreck during the long weary hours of the day and night, and were greatly exhausted when the storm subsided and boats could be sent out to take them off. The bottom of the Adler, however, formed such a protec tion against the storm that the men aboard were comparatively safe. ON BOABD THE NIPSIC. Tne American Crew Make a Desperate . Attempt to Save Their Tessel A Number of Collisions Add New Horrors to the Situation. Just after the Adler struck the attention of everyone was directed toward the Nipsic. She was standing off the reef with her head to the wind, but the three anchors which she had out at the time were not holding. The steamer was beating back toward the point where the Eber went down. It was only by most skillful management that her officers and crew were saved from the same fate that befell the Eber. The Nipsic also narrowly escaped de struction by being run into by the Olga.and it was the blow which she received from that Tessel that finally sent her ashore. The Nipsic had on all the steam it was possible tor her to carry, and had just succeeded in get ting clear of the reef when the little schoon er Lilly got in her track and was cut down. Tbe Olca was bearing down and the latter vessel was trying to avoid collision with the Olga when she struck the Lilly. The schooner sank out of sight in a moment. Captain Douglass, a pilot living in Apia, An tony Ormsny, a trader, and a Hawaiian native, all struck out for the Olga, but only one was saved. Douglass sank underneath the Olga twice, but finally succeeded in grasping one of tbe anchor chains and drew himself np on the steamer. Ormsby almost reached the chain, but was washed away and drownea. The Hawaiian wag swept out to sea. life bnojs were thrown to him from the Calliope and Van dalia, but he was not able to save himself. Trying- to Lighten the Ship. The Nipsic got well away from the reef after she struck the Lilly, and her men had attached a hawser to a heavy eight-inch rifle on the for ward deck and were preparing to hoist the -gun overboard to assist her anchors, when tbe Olga again bore down upon her. The Olga struck tho Nipsic amidships; her bowsprit passed over the port side of the Nipsic, and after carrying away a boat and splintering the rail, came in contact with the smokestack. Tbe smokestack was struck fairly in the center and fell to the deck with a crash like thunder. It .was difficult to realize for a moment what bad happened. Great confusion occurred. The crew be lieved that the steamer was goinc down, and .men rnn up tbe rigging for safety. The officials allayed their fears as well as tbey were able. The iron smokestack rolled from side to side with every movement of the vessel, and men ran to keep clear, of its track. Heavy blocks were finally placed nnder it, but at that time it was found that the Nipsic had swung around and was again approaching tbe reef. It was an anxious moment for all on board. They had seen tbe Eber strike on the same spot, and it seemed certain that they would go down in the same way. Having lost her smokestack tbe Nipsic was unable to keep her steam power up, and it was useless to attempt to steam out from tbe reef in the face of the wind. Captain Mullanewas was upon the bridge at the time, and remained cool and collected during tbe dangerous mo ment. Excitement on the Nipsic had reached the highest pitch. Several men stood by' their posts bravely, bnt many were demoralized and refused to listen to orders. Mnllnne Given Up the Fight. It was plain that in auotber moment the Nipsic woujd be upon the reof, and probably j'cijuanon board would be lost. Uaptaln Mullane aaw that any further attempt to save his vessel would be useless, so he gave the order to beach her. rnn anchor wai sllnniul and the lew pounds ot f team which could still pe usea kept the vessel in deep water until she cleared the end nfti. .... tr..-. r ,.u ......i nd other inflammable material were thrown into the furnaces to keep up the Are. Her head was put around to the shore and she had a straight course of 100 yards to the sandy beach in front of the American Consulate. Her engines worked as hard as tbe limited amount of steam wquld permit. When the Nipsic strucs her engineers did not take time to stop her engines, and her pro peller continued to revolve for an hour, while her bow stuck fast in the sand about 15 yards from the water's edge, and the vessel swungaround, forming an acute angle with the line of the shore. Orders were given to lower two boats. Sailors jumped into one boat, but the falls did not work properly, and before tho boat was lowered, one end dropped, The men were thrown into the water and drowneou ine boat containing Dr. E. Z. Derr, the ship s sur geon, and half a dozen sick men wasloweiea in safety, but it capsized before it reached the shore. Allot the men half swam, half floa.ea. until they came within reach of the natives who were standing waist deep in tho suri, when they were pulled out on the beach. Several of the sick men were much ex hausted, but they were quickly removed to the consulate, and revived in a few hours. Several men on the Nipsic ran to the rail and jumped overboard, amonc them being Lieutenant li. G. Davenport. They all reached the shore In safety except two sailors, who were unable to swim through the current, and were swept out into the bay and drowned. By this time every man aboard had crowded on the forecastle. A Line of Rescne. The natives rushed down near the bow of the steamer and shouted to those on deck above to throw a line. Double hawsers were soon made fast from deck to shore, and the natives gath ered around the lines to assist the men off. Senmann Taea, chief of the Apia District, and Salu Ana. King Mataafa's Secretary, directed the men in their work. The scene was one of intense excitement. The seas broke upon the stem ot the Nipsic with awf nl force, and It seemed as it the vessel would be shattered to pieces before the men on her decks could be saved. The waves were rolling high on the beach, and the undertow was so strong that the natives narrowly escaped being washed out into the bay. The terrible force of the wind can hardly be imagined. The rain continued to pour, and clouds of flying sand grew thicker every mo ment. Above the roar of the wind and waves could be heard tbe voices of officers shouting to tbe men on deck, mingled with the cries and singing of the Samoans as they stood battling against the surf, risking their lives to save the American sailors. Nearly all American and English residents of Apia were on the shore in front of the Consulate, and there seemed to be willingness on tbe part of every man to render whatever assistance was in his power. Ensign J. L Purcell, of the Nipsic, who had been on shore during the night, was up to his waist in water helping to rescue his comrades from their perilous position. Onboard the Nipsic the excitement which bad prevailed among tbe men just after tbe fall of the Emokestack had subsided, and there was no attempt made to leave the vessel in disorder. Captain Mullane and several other officers stood by the rail where the hawsers were made fast and directed the men. All who were In any way sick qr injured were allowed to leave first, and after that tbe men came down the ropes quickly. Noble Work of the Natives. The seas were rolling so high nnder tbe hows of tbe steamer that when tbe men had ad vanced ten feet down the ropes they would often be entirely submerged. Nothing but the noble efforts of the natives prevented them from being carried away by the current. As soon as each man would come within reach he would be grasped in tbe strong arms of half a dozen men and carried to tbe Consulate. Most of tbe men had scant clothing, but a few had carried some articles in their handkerchiefs, which they held on to firmly. Captain Mullane insisted upon being the last man to leave the ship. He finally found himself on deck with Lieutenant John A. Shearman and two sailors by his side. He ordered the sailors to leave, which tbey did. The Captain being unable to swim did not care to trust descending the rope by means of his hands and legs, as ail tbe others had done, so he procured an empty water cask which he attached to the hawser. "When be was seated in tbe cask Shearman stood alone on the deck and started his brave commander down the rope, theplncky Lieutenant then climbed down the rope in the usual way and Nipsic was left alone to battle with the waves. Lieutenant Fillette. of the Marine corps, who was In charge of the consulate, had anticipated the destitute condition in which the men had been, and had brdered a quantity of dry cloth ing from a neighboring store. As the men were taken into the consulate be provided them with dry suits of clothes, and did every thing possible to. make them as comfortable as circumstances wonld permit. Vice Consul Blackloe and several other persons also as sisted in relieving the men. and Dr. Dren and his apothecary were busy for several hours in administering restoratives to those who were exhausted. THE OTHEE VESSELS. A British Ship Escapes After Being In Cola lislon With the Tandalla The Latter Forced to the Bench Her Cap tain Swept From the Deck. The Nipsic, Adler and Eber were the smallest ships of -war in the harbor. " The four large men-of-war, theTrenton, Calliope, Vandalia and Olga, were still afloat and well off the reef. Nearly all the sailing craft had gone ashore. The Trenton stood well out into the bay, her steam and anchors barely holding her head up to tbe wind. The Olga was rolling terribly. The Yandalia and Calliope were close together, nearest the reef than the other vessels. About 10 o'clock in the morning the excite ment on shore, which bad quieted a little, com menced to grow more intense as theVandalia and Calliope were seen in a most dangerous position and a collision between the two vessels seemed inevitable. Great waves were tossing the two vessels about and they were comin" closer together every minute. The space b tween the men-of-war was next seen to close altogether, when suddenly the great Iron prow of the Englishman arose high in the air on the cret of an enormous wave and came down with full force upon the port quarter of -the Van dalia. The crash wag awful. The jib boom of the Calliope was carried away, and the heavy tim bers of the Vandalia were shivered. Every man who stood upon the poop deck of the Van dalia was thrown to his feet by the shock. A hole had been torn belowtbe rail and the water rushed into the cabin. It was impossible to ascertain the extent of the damage in a mo ment, but at the time it seemed tbe Vandalia had received ber death blow. The men rushed up tbe hatches in the belief that the steamer was sinking, and it was only after a great effort that the officers persuaded them to return to their posts. The Esenpe of the Calliope. Just after this collision Captain Kane, of the Calliope, determined to make an effort to steam ont of the harbor, as he saw that- to remain in his present position would lead to another col lision with the Vandalia and throw his vessel on tbe reef. He accordingly gave orders to let go all anchors. The Calliope's head was swung around to wind and her powerful engines were worked to their utmost capacity. It was an anxious moment on board tbe corvette, as with her anchors gone she had nothing but her en gines to depend upon to keep ber off the reef. She seemed to make her headway at first inch by inch, but her speed gradually Increased until it became evident she could clear the harbor. As she passed abreast of tbe Trenton, a great shout went up from our over 400 men aboard the flagship and threehearty cheers were given for the Calliope. Three cheers for the Trenton and the American flag was the answer that came back from across the angry billows. Tbe Calliope passed safely out of the harbor and steamed far out to sea, returning after the storm abated. When the excitement on the Vandalia which followed the collision with the Calliope had subsided a little. It was found necessary to act quickly to save the ship. Lieutenant J. W Carlin, executive officer, was practically In charge of the vessel, as Captain Rcnoonmaker had been thrown across the cabin tbe night be fore and severely injured. His head had been badly cut and one ear almost torn away by striking violently against a chair. Notwith standing his injuries, he faced the storm like a hero, and stood by tbe side of his first officer until the sea finally swept him off to his 'death. The Vandalia Beached. The Vandalia was now fast hearing down up on tbe reef alongside of the wreck of the Eber, and hundreds of people who were watching ber from tbe shore expected to see her strike and go to pieces every minute, bnt she was seen to move away from the reef and make her way to ward the point where the Nipsic lay. Captain Schoonmaker and Lieutenant Carlin saw it was useless to make any farther attempt to save the ship, and as her engines were not powerful enough to steam ont to sea as the Calliope had done, they determined to beach tbe ves sel. v It was nearly II o'clock when the ship struck, and notwithstanding her easy position, it soon became apparent that her officers and crew were In great danger. Nearly all of the officers were on deck, in sight of every one on shore. Tbe men were scattered about the gun deck and forecastle, holding on to the "masts and the sides of tbe ship. In half an hour it was noticed that the vessel was filling with water and settling down. The men on shore were willing to render as sistance, but were powerless. No boat could have lived a moment in the surf. Three natives were found who were-'Willing to vent ure out In the surf and attempt to reach the Vandalia with a cord. The men entered tbe water a quarter 'of a mile above the spot where the Steamer lay. waded out as far as tbey could, and then struck out into the current with the cord tied to their bodies. Shouts of encouragement went up from tbe shore, and the Samoans struggled bravely to reach the sinking ship, but. expert swimmers as tbey were, tbey were unable to overcome tbe force of the current, which rushed down like a cataract between the Van. dalia and tbe shore, and the men were thrown upon tbe beach without being able to get with in SO yards of the vessel. Their chief went among tbe men and urged them to try again. Several other attempts were made without success. Tbe seas continued to break over the-vessel, and it was not long before several men were swept over ber side. As soon as they reached tbe water they swam for the Nipsic, which was tbe nearest object to the Vandalia. All of them reached tbe Nipsic, where they grasped ropes banging over the side and attempted to draw themselves up on deck. A number suc ceeded in doing this, but others were so weak tuaVaf ter hanging to the ropes a few moments, their grasp were broken by the waves which crashed against the side of the vessel, and they fell back into the current. Death of a Bravo Captain. Tour officers were swept from the deck. Captain Schoonmaker was clinging to the rail on the poop deck. Lieutenant Carlin was standing by him and was doing his best to hold the Captain on, as tbe latter was becoming weaker every minute. A machine gun stand ing near by was washed from its fast enings and sent whirling across tbe deck. The captain was struck on the head by the gun and killed outright or knocked in sensible, for a wave swept him off the deck. He sank without a struggle, and was seen no more. Paymaster Arms and Payclerk Roach were lying npon the deck exhausted, but cling ing with all the strength they possessed to any thing which came within their grasp. They were swept off together. Men were now being swept from the decks and rigging half a dozen at a time, and a tew who felt themselves growing too weak to bold on much longer, jnmped into the water, deter mined to make one last effort to save them selves. Nearly every man who jumped or was washed Into the water succeeded in reaching the side of the Nipsic, and a number of them climbed upon the deck with tbe aid of a rope. Those who reached the deck assisted tbe oth ers who were struggling in the water and many lives were saved in this way. WEECK OF THE TBEN3M. The American Flag-Ship Finally Forced on the Reefs How Her Crew Were Rescued Confusion After the Storm. , At 4 o'clock in the afternoon the position of the Trenton and the Olga had changed, and they were almost on, the reef near the point where the Eber struck. The Trenton was coming down upon the Olga, and a collision seemed inevitable. The condition of the flag-ship was most pitiable. The water rushed in on the berthdecks, fonnd its way to tbe batches, and poured down into the fireroom. All attempts to keep it o'utfalled and In a short time the firemen were up to their waists in water and all the fires were ex tinguished. From 10 o'clock in the morning until 6 in the evening, when she grounded, tbe Trenton held out against the storm without steam or rndder, and her escape from total destruction on the reefs was miraculous. Tbo skillful manage ment of her navigating officer, T. C. M. Brown, was all that saved the lives of every man on board. Lieutenant. Brown ordered the meu in the port rigging, so that a compact mass of humanity conld be used as sails and at the same time keep tbe weight of the vessel on the side next to tho storm. This novel experi ment was all that saved the Trenton from com plete destruction. The winds struck against the men in the rigging, and forced the vessel out into the bay again. She remained there only for a short time, however, and soon commenced to drift back against the4)lga, whlcb was still standing off from the reef, aud holding up against the storm better than any other vessel in the har bor bad done. The Trenton came down slowly on the Olga, and this time it seemed as if both vessels would be swept to pieces. Another Collision Inevitable. A new danger now arose. The Trenton was sure to strike the Vandalia, and to those on shore it seemed that the huge hull of the flag ship would crush the Vandalia to pieces, and throw the 100 men still clinging to tbe rigging into the water. Suddenly a shout was borne across the waters. The Trenton was cheering the Vandalia. Tbe sound of 450 voices broke upon the air and was heard abovo the roar of the tempest. "Three cheers for the Vandallal" was the cry that warmed the hearts;of the dying men in the rigging. The shout died away upon the storm, and there arose from the quivering masts of the sunken ship a response so feeble that it was scarcely heard npon shore. The collision- of the Trenton and Vandalia, which everyone thought would crush the latter vessel to pieces, proved to bo the salvation of the men in the rigging. Ensign Ripley, who was in the maintop, determined to make an ef fort to reach shore. He crawled out on the yard and jumped into the sea. He was swept over to the stern of tbe Nipsic; but not being able to draw himself up he swam to apiece of wreck age near shore. He remained there a few minutes and then swam into the current. After a hard struggle he got through the current and was washed upon the shore. Rescued In the Morning. Little conld be done on shore but wait for morning. Lieutenant Shearman, Ensign Fur cell and several other persons patrolled the beach until early morning in the hope of res cuing any poor fellows who might be seen struggling in the waves. When day broke, with tbe aid of the natives, boats were sent out, and with great difficulty the remainder of the crew ot tbe Trenton were transferred to tbe shore. r A hasty examination was made of the Nip sic, apd though there was considerable water in her bold, she was found in fair condition and her officers and men were sent aboard as quick as possible. Contracts were made with various parties for feeding, the sailors, though it was a difficult matter to provide them with much food during the day. Order was generally restored in Apia after a few .days. A large force of Samoans "were put to work on tbe Nipsic and the steamer was hauled off. It was found that she was not leaking, but her boilers were sprung and ber propeller would not work. Her rudder, smokestack and most of ber "boats were gone and she was badly shattered above the water line. All of her officers and crew are living aboard. A QUAIffr EGYPTIAN BOOK. A Papyrus of tbe Ptolemaic Period Presented to Cornell University. Ithaca, April 13. Andrew D. White, ex President of Cornell University, has sent from Cairo, as a present to the university library, a paoyrus found about two years ago in the tomb of a priest of the Ptolemaic period. In his letter, which is dated March 28, he sajs of this interesting document: "It represents certain chapters of the 'Book of the Dead,' is a beautifully executed, per fectly .preserved and complete document in every respect. The inscriptions are partly hieroglyphic partly hieratic, and in the midst of them are very striking representations of a rectlcus sort, the most remarkable being 'The Last Judgment of the Soul Before Isis and Osiris.' This embraces Osiris upon his'throne, tbe great balance before blm, tbe weighing of the dead priest's heart In one scale against the 'Image of Truth' in the other, while about the balance are grouped the weighing, the record ing and the accusing gods, tbe four funeral genii and the 42 assessors." Mr. White also sends 140 large photographs illustrative of ancient and modern Egyptian art and a collection of more recent works on Egypt. . FINED FOE CHEATING HIMSELF. The Punishment Accorded to an Overgener ous English Coal Dealor, Prom the Loudon Globe. 1 "Do good by stealth and blnsh to find it fame" may have been excellent advice when Mr. Pope wrote, but it would require reshaping to bring it into harmony with modern require ments. A Yorkshire coal dealer, who has been doing good by stealth on quite an extensive scale, now has canss to blush at finding himself fined by a a police magistrate. This philanthropic trader owns a weighing machine which gives his customers 21 pounds overweight on every hundredweight. Some time ago his attention was officially drawn to the fact, and he received solid warning that if he continued his sinful benevolence he would be summoned. A weighing machine, that-gives overweight is as illegal as one that does tbe other thing, tbe law demanding a perfect ad justment of balance. This coally Samaritan re fused to believe, however, that his stealthy benefactions were punishable, and so persisted in adding tbe little bonus to every hundred weight of black diamonds that left his shop. A fine of five shillings and costs is tbe result, the bench expressing the opinion that it looked a little hard to punish a man for cheating him self to benefit his customers. It does look hard, no doubt, but what, a splendid advertisement! Goboeous as for a Princess: Ladies' fine Surah silk basques, made and finished in a most tasteful and artistio manner; they will be all the craze this spring and summer; drygoods stores, ask 12 .for them, but this week you can get them for only $8 at Kauf manns" Eajter.Sale.
