■ Multimillionaire, After Robinson
Crusoe Experience in South
Seas, Is Rescued by
[Special to The Herald.)
PASADENA, Jan. 13—In spite of
his millions. John Arundel, phosphate
king and multimillionaire, suffered
all the hardships of wild life with na
tives on a rockbound isle of the Pa
cific a few weeks ago when his million
dollar yacht went down. All the facts
concerning the remarkable adventure
of the man who controls the phosphate
beds of the world have been concealed
until today, when, after the departure
of the Arundel party from the Hotel
Green, a friend told of the exciting
episode an episode which rivals any
thing 1 from the pen of Robert Louis
John Arundel of London, New York,
Paris and the world In general has
vast phosphate beds in all parts of
the world. His life is mostly spent on
the sea, where until his terrible ad
venture he has sailed In his mag
nificent yacht, a boat with every com
fort and luxury and almost as large
as a great transatlantic liner. Some
months ago he purchased from the
French government some small islands
southeast of Tahiti, and then deeded
that he would take a trip In his new
yacht to inspect his possessions. %\ hen
the yacht, upon which were Mr. Arun
del's two daughters, themselves born
<jn one of his Island?, and his sister,
reached the larger of the group of
Islands it was discovered that the
coast was uninviting, great cliffs ex
tending far down into the sea, pre
venting a landing in the darkness. In
■water half a mile deep the anchor was
dropped and there, almost in the
shadow of the cliffs, the great yacht
lay for the night.
Vessel Swept on Rocks
; Shortly after darkness came, up
sprang a heavy wind. The machinery
was started to keep the boat head on,
when something went wrong. Thrown
back upon her cable, this only means
of s>afety gave way. and the costly
vessel was swept against the Inhos
pitable rocks. Shortly arter she struck
it was seen she could not be saved,
«nd so, without even the necessities
of life, the indels and the members
of the crew put off from the yacht in
the small boats and succeeded in forc
ing a landing through a crevice in the
On the following day while explor
ing the island the party encountered
some friendly natives. With them they
made arrangements to share the huts
on the island and the crude food which
the spot provided. In a few days one
of the small boats was outfitted for a
desperate attempt to bring help from
some passing ship.
Wireless Message Sent
Ijj .this- frail craft five members of
the crew put to sea, and after a week
were fortunate enough to fall In with
a large steamer with wireless tele
graph equipment. With the wireless
apparatus a message was dispatched
to San Francisco, from which port one
of the Arundel steamers was sent to
rescue the loned party, and so help
finally arrived, after the Arundels had
spent several weeks in the native huts
and ting the native food*
The phosphate king from the start
exerted "very effort to keep the story
secret, and so far as is known has
succeeded in so doing, until today,
when a friend to whom Arundel had
told the story repeated it. The phos
phate king (eared that If the story
were/ to berome public before his
safety was assured it might affect the
financial world, an.l after he had kept
it secret so long he decided to continue
to do so.

A correspondent of a Lausanne paper
states that he was passing through
Strnen when he saw a number of men,
dressed la dark blue clothes with white
stripes, walking- about the village,
smoking and joking.
Others were seated til a cafe, ana
some were working in • leisurely man
ner carrying bricks for the construc
tion of ,i new building. To his aston
ishment, the correspondent found that
the men were convicts from the can
tonal prison close by.

The money earned by those convicts

Two or three convicts "escaped'" some
weeks ago, but they eventually re

reprimanded, they were allowed to re

One convict was discharged recently, j

in view or the academy, the honor
which has boon bestowed upon the

is merited by the originality of his
literary output, both in tin- domain of
history and of social science, in the
report on Mr. Roosevelt, which M.
nut, the historian, addressed to

former president's history of the war of
1818, his life of Governor Morris, his

of essays, "The American Ideal."
The academy in thus choosing Roose
velt to take his seat by the side of
Beernart, I.uzzattini. Limantour, Moy

sanction to the wide

thai it is chiefly in this capacity that
