tho stormy Pacific in a 21-foot sail

venture, and the contract wjh clcd

A. It. Dremer. V to 21 I-a Sail 5:..
Chicago, will baciv the Mllvauk na
vigator. The agreement on th part
of Freitsch is that he U to build h'.s
own boat within twenty-four days af:r
reaching San Francisco, and thrc: he
will reach Honolulu In twenty-one
days sailing from the Golden (late, and
will reach Manila in forty-two days
from the time he leaves Honolulu. Tlic
vessel will be named the Coke, will be
twenty-four feet on the water line, Mat
bottomed, with a heavy ccn:crboard.
Capt. Freitsch says that if hU voy
age to Manila i3 successful, as he hopes
it will be, he may continue on around
tno Cape of Good Hope, and so make
the trip back across tue Atlantic, thin
circumnavigating tho g!ol a fw:

der such conditions.
Capt. Freitsch is a .Milwaukcean who
has made for himself by thr perform
ance of similar feats to the one which
he is now about to attempt a great
name. In 1S91 he sailed across the At
lantic in a forty-foot schooner called
the Nina, performing thV trip alone.
It took 'him just thirty-four days and
throe hours to make r.,000 miles from
Sandy Hook light to Teereght. nml the
performance attracted -world-wide at
tentlon at tho time. I-ater he made
two trips across Iake Michigan from
Milwaukee to the East shore and re
turn during the stormy fall weather
in a skift rigged with a sail. He was
almost given up for lost on his return
trip, as he was much longer in making
the crossing than was expected.
'A later attempt to sail down the
Mississippi in a small schooner built
by himself in this city was abandoned.
and since that time tho captain has
been planning other ventures, appar
ently only satisfied "when he U risk
