AIDLTHE Is Alleged to Have Been Doled Out to Gaudaur on the Eve of the Race. HIS ASTOUNDING CHARGES. He Bows the Eace, Finishing a Quarter of a Mile Ahead of Teenier. A CLAIM OF FOUL IS FILED, The Parties Meet, Wrangle and Bamm is Physically Assaulted by a Teemerite. all morning and running around; but if he can get into his boat he will row, and give Teemer such a beating as he never had in his life." The above conversation took place at the Baltimore and Ohio depot about ten min utes before 1 o'clock. Gaudaur was on the platform, looking very weary. At 4 o'clock McKeesport was packed from end to end with one of the most enthu siastic and noisy crowds ever seen at a boat race. The streets of the town were crowded, and every inch of the banks of the rivers was occupied with people waiting to see the contest. Nearly a dozen steamboats were filled with passengers, and the referee's boat was an overladen craft, if ever there was one. For a time it seemed as il everybody wanted to back Teemer; so much so that odds of 2 to 1 on the McKeesport man were offered all around. THE BACE EEMAIKS UNDECIDED. What St. John Said in His Indignation Over the Very Serious Pois oning Episode. A -LETTER SIGNED BT TWO OAESMEN Gaudaur, Hamm and St. John allege the former was poisonously drugged in Mc Keesport Thursday night Nevertheless, Gaudaur has finished the race a quarter of a mile ahead of Teemer. The latter claims a foul. The referee holds the matter open until 3 o'clock this afternoon, as the con testants sought a resort to physical force 'last night The Teemer-Gaudaur boat race yesterday began and ended with two interesting sensa- THE BAOE ITSELF. Teemer' Spurt for iho Lead ot Little Avail A Very Pretty Contest at tho Mile- niul-IInlr The Tame Finish. About 5 o'clock the referee's boat moved from the wharf and proceeded to the start ing point. During the trip down betting was somewhat brisk at 2 to 1 on Teemer. Many bets, such as $60 to $30 and $100 to J50, were made. The water was tolerably fair. At places it was a little lumpy, but, taking it all through, the coarse was good. Mr. St John, judge for Gaudaur, and Mr. W. A. McPherson, of Boston, judge for Teemer, tossed for choice of water, and St. John won. He chose the inside, or south side of the river. The stakeboats were dispensed with, because of the crowd of steamers, and the rowers agreed to get into line by mutual consent THET TVEBE 'WELL BESTED. They had rested about three hours at the Barnard cottage, near the starting point, Saltsbnrg, and about 5:45 o'clock they were at the mart. The referee soon had them in line, and the word "go" was given before they had been at the mark two minutes. Teemer got the best hold of the water, and, with a vigorous stroke, ho dashed off with a good half length's lead. Gandaur made a short stroke or two at the start, and this enabled Teemer to increase his lead to almost a length before 200 yards had r-een covered. Teemer began at a 33 rate, that is, he settled down to that after a few yards had been rowed. Gaudaur's stroke was a little SETTLING TEE BASIS.

As far as sports go, the race was rowed; but the winner will not be known until this afternoon, some time after 3 o'clock. There has undoubtedly been considerable anxiety about the race during the last few days, and, to make a long story short, in the way of introduction to the account of the contest, it ma" be stated that Hamm and Gandanr visited The Dispatch ofiice yes terday and made a request that the race be postponed, because they had been drugged or poisoned on Thursday night at McKees port IT WAS SIMPLY ASTOUNDIN G. The'statement was more than surprising, it was astounding. The two rowers, or at least the trainer and the contestant in the race could not see the referee (that is the sporting editor of The DisrATcn), but Mr. Hamm not only wired that gentleman to see him about important business, but leit the following significant letter in The Dispatch ofiice: Dzae Sib Mr. Gandaur and I have been hunting you all morning. We had a dose of poison last night, and Gaudaur can row ro race to-day. You will understand that we have the right to object to the water, and we want a postponement until Tuesday. Gaudaur will be unable to row until then. Wo are Eoing to hunt up St. John, and will not bo able to see you, probably. IT MADE HIM TEBT ILL. Gaudaur is very ill from the effects of it Of course you will understand this is a private communication, and, if you can grant us the favor, I think it is due us from you. Hamm asd Gaudaub. After our consultation with St Jonn, we may drop the race; so pay nothing in the way of stakes away until you bear from us. This letter was so startling in its story that the referee soon saw St John. The latter had in the meantime taken Gaudaur to a prominent physician in this city, whose name St John withholds for the present St John, however, said that there was no doubt whatever about an attempt being made to drug or poison Gau-Isur. WHAT ST. JOHN SAID OP IT. St John was evidently much affected.and during a private conversation with the writer he said: "It is an absolute certainty that Gaudaur has been tampered with, and he tells me a story of how it was done that is startling in the extreme. The physician I have had examining him says he has swal lowed a big dose of lobelia. Gaudaur is sick, very sick at the stomach, and has purged. I want him to row, however, and I nm sorry that a thing like this should occur. Wc have an idea of the parties, but I refuse to mention any names at present It is a serious affair." The writer reasoned with St John, with the object of having Gaudaur row if possi- ' ble, because of the tremendous crowds going to the race. After an exchange of opinions St John said: CHOCK TOLL OF il-CNE. "Jake will row if his purging stops and the water is smooth; bnt I regret that a mean thing like this has taken place. He has been away from bis training quarters J slower, about one or two per minute. Teemer was rowing AT A KILLING BATE, and he gradually left the St Louis man inch by inch. Both were rowing a clean stroke at the half mile; but Gaudaur was certainly rowing with more ease than Teemer. The latter was striking the water a little deep, and pulling his scull through the water with all the power that he pos sessed. It was apparent that neitherTeemer nor any man living could keep up the exer tion he was under very long. Not even Ben forth in his best day could do it Teemer, to the uninitiated eye, looked every inch an easy winner. It seemed as if he was going to "walk" leisurely away from Gaudaur, but the latter got settled down to a powerful and most effective swing of about 31 to the minute, and when the mile had been covered Gaudaur had, apparently, Tcemer's measure. The latter was working away with his vigorous and powerful stroke, but Gaudaur, though stiiking slower, was jnst beginning to get a little more speed on his boat than the McKeesporter. TEEMEK'S OVW TACTICS. During this time Teemer had been press ing Gaudaur dangerously near the shore, so much so that several times it looked as if the St Louis sculler would be stranded. Had he fouled Teemer then the race would certainly have been his (Gaudaur's). How ever, Tecmer's pace began to wane at a mile and ahalf. Gaudaur began to creep up, and at this point the race was as pretty and exciting as anybody would wish to see. Teemer saw'Goudaur closing on him, and a desperate struggle ensued. They both rowed like demons, Teemer still forcing Gaudaur close to the shore. A tugboat lay ahead and Teemer rowed outside and Gau daur inside. Neither lost an inch by it, and when they were clear Gaudaur had gotten very near to Teemer. Al. Hamm now figured on the course. He was apparently ahead of both rowers far enough to be out of their way, and nearing the two-mile noint, or what was supposed to be the two-tnile point, he rowed lrom the snore into mid stream ahead or both rowers. Just at this stage Teemer, who had been rowing too iar in-shore, made an abrupt deviation for mid stream. AVOIDING TnE JETTT. There was a jetty ahead of the rowers, projecting from the south shore, and it was necessary that Teemer should strike very rapidly into mid stream to get clear of it lar enough to allow Gaudaur to clear it It really seemed as if Teemer got too near the jetty fu Gaudaur's water, and was fearfnl of the consequences of forcing Gaudaur into it However, Teemer made a remark able course from the shore, his boat going nlmcst athwart the stream. Gaudaur fol lowed him a certain distance, and then struck a straight course for home. Hamm was now certainly well out of the way of both scullers. "When the rowers trot fairly straightened for home Gaudaur was safely in front, and rowing well. His stroke was as powerful as ever, and his boat was movine swiftlv on an even keel. Teemer was not displaying, by far, the same vigor that he did during the first mile or the mile and a half. Without any extra effort Gaudaur, with an effective drag of about 27 per minute, gradually left Teemer behind. The race was now over, as far as a contest (SPECIAL TXLEORAK TO TIM DISrATCH.l Habeisbueo, September 13. The State Floods Belief Commission shut itself up in the consulting room of the Supreme Court Judges this afternoon, and for three hours, in the absence of any reporters, who were re fused admittance, listened to statements ot a committee which represented claimants from what is known as the Jersey shore district, covering ten townshiDS and two boroughs, and discussed various suggestions looking to a final distribution of the fund on hand for the relief of the sufferers by the floods, estimated by Secretary Kremer to aggregate about 81,500,000. All the mem bers were present except Mayor Filler, of Philadelphia, and Mr. Marvin, of Pitts burg. JERSEY SHOBE CLAIMS. Captain P. D. Bricker, of Jersey Shore, and Bev. J. A. Patton, of Waterville, Lycoming county, made sturdy claims for a big slice of the relief fund for their suffering constituents, whose losses, according to sworn statements submitted, amounted to $498,000. The commission agreed to allow $30,000, in addition to 7,500 previously dis tributed for the relief of these flood suffer ers, and $100,000 to the Wiiliamsport dis trict The main nuroose of the meeting was to arrive at a basis for the final distribution of the amount of the contributions to which the people of Johnstown and vicinity were entitled. FoH examination was made of various claims presented from different sec tions of the State. It was ascertained that in several counties the final distribution has been made, and that in others payments are in progress, while some districts have failed to completo their schedules. A PLAN FOB JOHNSTOWN. The question as to how to make the dis tribution of the main fund in the Cone maugh Valley, as to these people the large bulk of the money will go, was earnestly discussed. A sub-committee, con sisting of Messrs. Ogden and Beeves, of Philadelphia, and Miller, of Pittsburg, submitted plans of distribution for consid eration as gathered from statements sub mitted to the commission, which was un able to come to a conclusion at the first con ference, and adiourned to meet at the Grand Hotel in the hope of reaching an agreement looking to the immediate dis tribution of the available relief fund. After the commission had partaken of a substantial supper ex-Bepresentative Hanna and J. H. Brown, of Johnstown, members ot the committee of inquiry appointed to ascertain the losses of about G,000 people, were called before it THE SWOBN LOSSES. This committee had sworn statements to show that the losses in the Conemaugh Val ley, without counting those of the Pennsyl vania Bail road Company, the Cambria Iron Works and other corporations, aggregated about 8,000,000. The committee also showed that $565,000 had been distributed among the sufferers, that the losses ranged from ?5 to $165,000, and that 190 people had suffered to the extent of $10,000 and over by the bursting of the South Fork reservoir. The commission adjourned three-quarters of an hour after midnight, after having de cided to distribute $1,600,000 among the flood sufferers of Conemaugh Valley, in ad dition to the sums received by them. It will go to over 4,000 claimants, under tho supervision of Secretary Kremer, of the Flood Commission, in conjunction with the Johnstown Committee of Inquiry. Proba bly two weeks time will be required to com plete the work of distribution. Besolutions expressive of sorrow at the death of Judge Cummin, a member of the Commission, were adopted. THE END MUST COME. More Than Half of the Peremptory Cunl. lenses of tho Defense Exhausted A Dcclilon of tho Court Creates n Smnll Semntlon. rSFZCIAI. TELEQRAJI TO- TUB DISPATCn.l Chicago, September 13. Over one-half of the peremptory challenges of the defense in the Cronin case are now gone. Five were used to-day, and 61 or the 100 challenges credited to the prisoners have been can celled. At this rate of progress a jury ought to be secured within two weeks. At torney Foster, who has been missing for tie past week, came into court during the after noon. He shook hands with all his col leagues and sat down in a big chair near Beggs. It is now said that be has not dropped out of the case, and that when a jury has been chosen he will work zealously with Attorney Forrest in an effort to clear tho prisoners. There were only two features of the dreary examination of venire men to-day. One of these was a ruling by Judge McConnell that a man might discredit the testimony ef active members of the Clan-na-Gael and still be a competent juror. The other fea ture was the response of four talesmen to the question as to whether he (the juror) had formed any opinion as to the guilt or innocence ot any or all of the men on trial. The four men replied in the affirmative, and declared further that one of the guilty men was not on trial. These declarations were so frank and so loudly proclaimed that they created a profound sensation among the spectators, who filled all the seats outside of the railing. Pearson is still held as a possible juror, but it is said he will soon be dismissed by the State. Eeal Estate Agent Culver is the other possible juror. He has been passed by both sides. He is considered good enough by the State. If he is dismissed the defense will have to lose another of their precious peremptories. One of the specta tors to-day was Judge Hutchins, of Cleve land, who was prosecuting attorney when Beggs was sent to the Ohio penitentiary for embezzlement The senior warden, who is now on trial for his life, bowed to the vis itors. The fifteenth venire was issued to night. IMPRISONED TWO DAIS. A Policeman Ecicaesa Family WaterBoond In the Hoboken Flats. rSPECIAI. TELEOUAM TO THE DISPATCH. 1 New xobk, September 13. Policeman David Fenton, of Hoboken, says he heard someone calling "Help! Help!" out on the meadows, near Jackson street, early this morning. He saw Charles Kressler in his shirt sleeves waving a red flag made of a red bandanna handkerchief tied to a broom stick from the second-story window of a house 300 feet back from the street. The water in the meadows was three feet deep, and it was up to the window on the firsr floor of the house. Kressler was evidently in distress. A pile offlumber stood in front of a new building a block away, and Fenton made the man in distress understand that he would come to him. Then he got enough of the lumber to make a raft and lashed it together with ropes. While he was at work three women came to the window where Kressler was standing, and watched him at work. They were Krcssler's wife and two daughters. The officer pushed the raft to the house with a pole, "when he climbed in the second story winaow me women nuggca ana Kissed him and called him their deliverer. It was five minutes before he could get their story from them. Then they said they had been im prisoned by the water two days, and had not had a mouthful to eat for 36 hours. -Kressler return evlffo the ''mainland with Fenton on the raft and laid in a stock of provisions. To-day the raft was in constant use by the family. A SCHEME OF SCOPE. Annual Contributions to the Repub lican National Committee. CHAIRMAN QUAY EVOLVES A PLAN For the Future Assessment of Deserve Funds for the Party TO HELP OUT PENDING ELECTIONS. Fledging $10,000 In TitUtrarg Alone, and ffori to Be gin Ererywhere. Chairman M. S. Quay, of the Eepublican National Committee, has inaugurated a far reaching scheme of campaign contributions on the annual plan, thus assuring the com mittee of an income which will not fluctu ate. A facsimile certificate is printed by The DisrATCH. Assistance to be afforded in pending election contests. United States Senator Matthew Stanley Quay, Chairman of the National Republi can Committee, and for the next several years the custodian of the Bepublican party's interests for weal or woe.has evolved a plan by which the National Committee will, in the future, be plentifully sunnlied with the one great essential of successful campaign prosecution money. There are being quietly circulated in Pittsburg 1,000 certificates, a fac simile of which is here with appended, the original bavins reached The Dispatch by a circuitous route. Nearly all ot them, at least a very encouraging percentage, have been placed without the slightest trouble among the most prominent manufacturers and business men in this city, thus demonstrat ing the success of Chairman Quay's newest, and, by many, regarded as his best official enterprise, conducing to the permanent suc cess of the Bepublican party. His friends in Pittsburg are delighted with this fresh proof of the occipital length pertaining to the junior Senator from Pennsylvania. NOT TO BE HOOTED OFF. Politicians are more or less inured to the iteration of the cry from inimical camps about ''corruption funds;" but such charges have had no deterrent effect in the prepara tion of the details appertaining to the forma tion of the "B'eserve Fund" ot the Eepub lican National Committee. An intimate both of the national legislative bodies. idea is to inaugurate so active a eampa: as to make the victory decisive. Oh. the! Pennsylvania State contest is not con sidered at all in doubt. It is hardly likely that the National Committee will at all con cern itself about this State." The certificate is a verv handsome piece of work. It is executed" in the highest style of art, and isof the general appearance of a Treasury note of the $10 denomination. At each corner is a value mark with florid engraved lines. The vignette of President Lincoln, in the lower left-hand corner is one of the finest ever executed, and the sig natures of Chairman M. S. Quar, Treasurer "W. "W. Dudley and Secretary J. Sloat Fassett, the officers of the National Commit tee, are fac-simile. Across the body of the certificate in raised letters are the words, "Begistered Contributor." The prevailing tint is green, with black letter print THE COUPON ON THE BOND. Attached to the certificate is a "stub," upon which appears the same statement as upon the certificate, with the addition of a form of formal receipt. There are also spaces for the same and address of the eon tnbutor. It is stated that within a few days the Bepublican State Chairmen of all the States in which active organization exists will be furnished with quantities of certificates based upon the size of the Bepublican vote in the State, but the greatest percentage will be placed in Pennsylvania, New York and Ohio. There is, of course, no limita tion as to the amount to be issned. Like all things of a popular nature the members of the Bepublican ranks will be the ones who will settle the number taken after their own methods. But it may safely be asserted that the demand will have a decidedly lively time overtak ing the supply. Allegheny county will probably sustain its reputation as the ban ner Bepublican county by investing liber ally in National Committee bonds. There are neither coupons on the bonds nor flies on the floaters thereof. THE SAME OLD STOEY.

The flpur manufacturers of the city are excited over dispatches from New Orleans showing that the St. Louis flour has been from three to eight pounds short of weight for the past month. Ten thousand barrels have been examined and found short. There was no shortage in the Minnestota flour, but Missouri brands were off. Among the worst they say was the "Fleur Du Cape" from Cape Girardeau, 2,000 barrels of which were short. Plant's mill and Crangle's mill flour of St. Louis were also found short. The St Louis men interested reluse to talk about the matter. For some time past the millers of this city have not been able to ship any flour to New Orleans, because they could not meet the price of the country millers. Messrs.

JOHN TEEMER SSSSS&SXZ tcretling article on "Shells and Scullt," drUh a detailed account of the manner in whieR the modern oauman trqins or a rate. friend of Senator Quay states that the ex perience of the last campaign in the im mense task of securing money for the enor mous lesitimate expenses incurred by the dissemination of campaign literature and other essentials, caused the Beaver statesman to don his thinking cap. There were many disadvantages implied in the raising of campaign funds upon the SDur of the moment Firstly, the valuable time of influential gentlemen has had to be employed, in many instances, in drumming up contributions. Secondly, it would be exhibiting a faith that was at once childlike and bland to imagine that all contributions made to the National Committee reached that body intact; and lastly, that in no campaign in the past hud the National Committee been able to exactly compute what it would have to so upon. This last consideration was one of crave import when, in a national campaign, so much territory had to be cov ered, and an erroneous calculation of ways and means might result in the loss of a close State from the Bepublican column. It is emphasized that no secrecy in the mat'er is implied or intended in the careful corking up of the details of the new scheme, so far as the newspapers were concerned, up to the present time. It has been merely de sired to ascertain whether or no the "reserve fund" idea would strike a popular chord. The Dispatch violates no confidence in statin c that this plan is simply an impor tant adjunct to a most systematic plan ot campaign for thefuture behoof of the Bepub lican party. The idea is to have annual direct contributions to the Bepublican Na tional Committee, maturing by the terms of the certificate receipt, on the 1st day of Sep tember of each year. ) it -waxl-cibculate. The certificates will be placed in the Be publican ranks from Maine to California, and will be registered in the books of the National Committee. That august body will be able to tell to a dot just how much money can be depended upon, without re sorting to contributors used to giving larger amounts, but much more difficult to approach and enlist. Its very character of a "popular" subscription is depended upon as an offset to the archaic opposition howls about monopolists and millionaires. The following hurried resume of the polit ical situation is given by one ot Senator Quay's adherents, who says: "No time will be lost in getting the first annual payment in, as there are several campaigns now in progress, and the Na tional Committee hears the Macedonian cry from all sections of the country.

Ohio, while certain to elect Foraker, is a trifle shaky as to the Legislature with the XT. S. Senatorship as a contingent North and South Dakota have full State tickets in tho field. There is no apprehension as to a victory in the State officers, the representa tive allotted to each, and the customary number of Senators. But Montana is gravely in doubt. Help must be afforded or a Democratic Bepre sentative and two Democratic Senators may be sent to Washington? There is a little doubt expressed as regards the situation in Washington Territory.

Unfortunately, he had gambled a little in Chicago, where, by the three-card-monte snap, he had been robbed of $1,000. He produced the cards to explain how it was, and Gleim expressed a willingness to risk a certain amount. The other man also bet some and lost, and Gleim won. The rich farmer came to Streator and drew 5,000 out of the bank to buck the game, and at-tlie end the land man and the farmer were $20,000 ahead.

Her brother, who is her only rela tive in this country, visited the house on' Sunday last, but she declined to see him. On Tuesday her condition became so alarm ing that Mr. Olsen summoned Dr. A. W. Ford, one of the police surgeons, who found that she was suffering from typhoid fever. He left a prescription. BEFUSED THE MEDICINE. Miss Olsen refused to allow any one to purchase the medicine, declaring she would not take it under any circumstances. On Thursday night Mr. Olsen returned from a religious meeting and found the girl speech- box, in which was supposed to be all the cash, and promising to come to Gleim's house in an hour to divide the winnings. The old German chuckled, but after three or four hours, the land man not returning, he began to "smell a mice," and, forcing open the box, found his treasure to be noth iny but a lot of old scraps of paper.

Senator Sherman, In a Serenade Speech, Deals In Enigmatical Language. ISrXCIAI. TELEGRAM TO THE DISFATCH.1 Washington, September 13. It was a wet and cheerless throng of Ohio Bepubli can office-holders that met at Senator Sher man's residence to-night to welcome the Senator home from Europe. The Senator's speech did not warm them up, at all. He never mentioned Foraker's name, saying simply: "As for Ohio, she always comes right side up." His old friend and cham pion, Mahone, the Senator lauded to the skies, but he had not one word for Foraker. The coldest stab of all was given President Harrison ' by this disgruntled Bepublican Senator. "It is not that we distrust our Democratic opponents," he said, "but as a matter of justice an(i public policy, those who have done well should be encouraged to do bet ter. Therefore we give our hearty support to the administration of President Harrison, :fnd expect that he will be sustained and encouraged by a Bepublican Congress." The Bepublicans who heard this remarka ble language, which is copied from the Sen ator's own manuscript, are wondering what it means. As soon as ex-Speaker Keifer began making a speech the crowd promptly dispersed. The Marine Band played "Listen to my tale of woe" as the Ohio Bepublican Asso ciation and the Sherman League started for the Senator's house,' and just after his speech was over played "The Campbells are coming.

Camp Samuel Harper,of the G, A. B. of Penn sylvania, closed to-day and the tents will be struck as soon as the weather permits. This morning the headquarters band, with the department officers, left for their homes and to-night the town was deserted.

Mill Nye dishes up one cote in particular in to-morrouft Dispatch. Ford. On his return with the doctor the woman was dead. Dr. Ford refused to give a death certificate. Coroner Booney asked Mr. Olsen if he, would wait for the intervention of Divine Providence if he saw a man drowning, and it was in his power to save him. Mr. Olsen said: "I have no faith in physi cians mvself. This young woman had none and I did not care to interfere. I put no obstacle in her way to have a physician, and I actually summoned Dr. Ford." The Coroner instructed County Physician Shep ard to make anautopsy. - Mr. Olsen said to-day: "I and all the members of my family have no faith in the Eower of physicians to euro bodily ills. We elieve that when our time comes we must die and that no eabthlt help will avail. This girl knew she was going to die and was perfectly resigned to her fate. I would not attempt to save a life that was claimed by its Maker." Olsen is a 'longshoreman, 35 years old, and he bas not, it is said, been sick a day in his life. He is spoken of by his neighbors as a sober and industrious man. Four or five months ago, it is said, he allowed one of his children to die without calling in a ' physician. He has been a regular attend ant at some faith cure meetings recently held in Temperance Hall, in Hamilton avenue. Dr. Ford thinks that Miss Olsen's life might have been saved if the proper reme dies had been applied. He said: "As soon as I saw the girl on Monday I concluded that she had typhoid fever, but the symp toms were not especially alarming. I left a prescription to have put up and also di rected how the medicine was to be used. FOUND HEB DEAD. "The next X heard of the case was last night, when I was hurriedly called to the house. . I fonnd the girl dead. I was sur prised to learn they had not only not given the medicine I had ordered, bat had not even had the prescription pat up. The girl, I think, died of their neglect There is no doubt about it The only thing these people did was to nurse her and perform their incantations over her, waving their hands over her, patting her on the body,and praying for her recovery. These people should be taken charge of and a stop put to their outrageous ceremonies." This afternoon Dr. Ford made a formal complaint to Coroner Booney against Carl Olsen, especially for neglecting to cany out bis instructions about the prescription, and the Coroner issued a warrant for Olsen's ar rest. Olsen was arrested. Another Piratical Sealing Schooner. Victobia, B. C, September 11 A dis patch says that the sealing schooner W. P.
