SEATTLE BEER "AT- THE CRITERION SALOON, A HORRIBLE accident occurred at Eleele last Tuesday. A Japanese workman was crushed to death on tne wnarr Dy a six-ton piece of machinery.. The huge piece of iron had been discharged from the steamer Kiihau on her last trip and was loaded onto a car, having been turned over to the railroad. , It was standing up right and alone when the workman stooped to arrange some gear. The gear fouled in some way and the great piece of iron fell suddenly over onto the Japanese, crushing him flat and necessarily killing him instantly. ' The body was beyond recognition and it is said that portions of it were car ried away in a sack. The Japanese was one; of the plantation laborers. AN OVERDUE SHIP. Anxiety Is being felt as to the safety of the ship Beacon Rock, now 65 days out from Port PIrie to Wellington. She left the Australian port with 1,150 tons of concentrates and lead ores as bal last and has not been heard of since; Fine weather prevailed off ' the south coast of .Australia for' some days after" her departure, and since then strong westerly gales have been experienced." Latterly tthere has been ugly weatner from th south and north, and it It possible that she may have met with a mishap. On the 9th Inst, the S. Si Rotomahana sigh ted. ra.'jsbip off Cape Campbell, " the identiy '"of which has not yet been established. It is suggest ed that the Australian Government should despatch a steamer to search the coasts and the Chatham Islands for traces of the missing- vessel. Recent developments in shipbuilding have mainly been connected wltn steamers; yet that the shipwright's skill in constructing sailing craft has by no means lapsed during these latter days is amply proven by the case of the fine six-master schooner George W. Wells. ' The George W. Wells has just been successfully launched from the . Bean shipyard in Camden, Mass. She is the largest vessel of her kind in the world and is Nregarded among sailing cratt with much the same Interest as .the Oceanic and the Deutschland are among steamers. She has 2,750 tons net register, with a carrying capacity of" ovjr 5,000 tons, while she is 302 feet long In the keel, 343 feet long on top, 23 feet deep and has a beam measurement of 48 feet. She has a couple of full decks, her frame throughout being made of white oak( while all her planking and ceiling is bf hard pine. Her keelson is remark able, being 13 feet high aft and 17 feet forward and built of hard pine timber It is fastened with no fewer than ,J',f Pne'and three-ei.shths inch iron boits. ' ' s -The vessel's fittings Include a Hyde v. IndlasB. operated by a 3Ch6re poweY engine; two pumps, with a combined capacity 'of "1,200 gallons -MWrtite;-a stockless anchor, weighing 8.200 pounds, and' a Camden r .anchor,' weighing 7,500 pounds, besides kedge and.stceajn an chors. weighing respectively 900 pounds and 600 Tounds, and, 200 falhprnp of Jwo and one-half inch bar cnain.- i . -"Heir-water tanks hold 7,000 gallons, Her six lower masts are splendid sticks of Oregon pine, each 119 feet long and 30 inches in diameter In. the partners topmasts each 53 feet long, the foretop- mast 28 Inches in diameter at tne cap. The Jibboom is 75 feet long, 20 Inches at cao: dlverboom 75 feet long. 18 inches in the slings;' other "booms, 42 feet long, 14 inches in the slings, All the standing rigging is of wire. set up with turnbuckles. ' The masts are named as follows be ginning forward: Foremast, main mast, mizzenmast, . spa.nkermast, Jlg- germast, and drivermast. TheT vessel will carry '12,000 square yards ,of the heaviest duck, in the following pieces: Driver, jigger,- spanker, mlzzen main and fore sails, six gafftopsatls of the same respective , designations, driver, jipger, spanker, mlzzen and maintop- mast staysails, and five Jibs. In the after-house are the cabins and i i i . . nan. ii dozen siaierooms. besides a chartroom. Some idea of the immensity of the vessel may be had from the fact that over a million feet of hard pine were used in its construction and about 100.- ooo feet of white pine deck plank. In deed, her material would make a load for several average-sized schooners. Not only is the vessel of remarkable size, but -she is uncommonly handsome withal, for her great length .takes away all appearances of bulklness, so, that she looks more like an immense yacht Twelve schooners like her, ranged in line, would occupy a mile of pier front age, for from the top of her driverboom to the tip of her Jibboom is about 425 feet. A schooner that would have been considered large a score of years, ago could not carry enough coal- to ballast the George W. Wells. ' All this is vexy satisfactory as far as It goes, but the most satisfactory Ihing of all from the owner's point of view is the fact that this magnlfllcent craft should be a splendid monev-maker. Carrying at least 5,000 tons of coal on a draft of only 24 feet and with only 14 men all told for crew master, two mates, steward, engineer and nine sea menshe should easily beat her com petitors at carrying men when freights are low. A full-rigged h!p of eqinl size would require" to carry at leas 3' men all told. LAUNCHING BOATS AT. SEA. A patent has been applied ; for, in Australia, , for an invention to provide he safe and effectual launching of boats from a vessel at eea, or when wrecked upon a 'lee shore. It is a well known fact that In a great num ber of instances efforts to save the lives of passengers or crew in such a position are frustrated by the boats being dashed to pieces against- tho sides of the. vessel. The invention un der notice provides for the launching or the boats in quite a novel manner, not parallel with the ship, as at pres ent, but with head to" the sea. This Js accomplished by means of',, patent telescopic davits, which are made to ran from the foot or step , of - the davits, working on trunnions, ' one i man beine lowered in" the boat its reaching the water he releases .one end of the boat, causing it to swing round and ride, facing the j gale. At tached to the davLts will jbea canva,s shute to lower passengers into a boat, the crew, who will have to pull the boat going first, "and taking their position at .the oars. The passengers will then be lowered until the boat (has her, full complement, . when the man at the bow, at a given signal, disconnects the boat from the davit, t-h davit soringine. ud clear of boat bv the action of mechanism aboard the sb.iD.-and the boat pulling to sea. It Is the intention .of the. Jnventor to offer this clever, device tQ anr Austra lian syndicate. A number of old nau tical men and retired tnaster mariners have expressed thorough' confidence in its practical .working, and admit its necessity, as all . previous ? Inventions to provide for the launching of. boat at sea ihave failed io secure the cert talntr of r& boat floating-free from' the side of the . vessels -'i - ' Capital, 1250,000.
