SHE SHIPPED A
Alameda Comes to Port With Pilot
House Steve in and Steering
After a week's battle with wind and
wave, the Alameda goi in eany yes
terday morning' nearly two days over
due. The trip was the roughest that
Captain Herriman has ever experienc
ed; in fact, it blew a gale all the way
from San Francisco to Honolulu.
When the pilot was discharged on
the afternoon of the 15th a thick fog
prevailed, and the wind which had un
til then been moderate, started to
breeze up. At 4 a. m. on the 16th a
moderate gale was blowing, with high
seas, and at noon a fresh gale pre
vailed, with the wind backing to the
The gale continued until 4 p. m., at
which time the Doric, which had left
an hour ahead of the Alameda, was
sighted. On the 17th a high, confused
sea was running, with the wind mod
erate, but at midnight it breezed up
again from soutneny to a iresn gaie.
About 6 a. m. on. the 18th the en
gines were going very slowly, and at
a, m. a tremendous sea was shipped
forward, which stove in a forward
scupper and the skylight window and
front of the pilot house, breaking the
wheel of the steam steering gear,
washing both binnacles away, and
flooding the deck cabin of the saloon.
At noon on the 18th it was blowing
a fresh gale from the north, and this
condition of weather prevailed, with
continual showers of rain until 8 a. m.
of the 19th, the vessel going dead slow
all the time.
During the afternoon of the 19th the
weather moderated slightly, and at 8
a. m. on the 20th it commenced to blow
again from the west-southwest, and at
noon there was a fresh gale which
continued until 4 p. m., with a high
westerly sea running all the time.
From midnight on the 20th to port,
moderate to fresh southwesterly,
breezes were the rule.
The time of the trip was 7 days and
18 hours, or from 3:40 p. m. on the loth
to 7:12 a. m. of the 23d.
The terrific sea which wrecked the
pilot house caught a forward scupper
and carrying it clean over the length
of the ship deposited it aft. The man
in the pilot house had a narrow" escape.
So great was the force -of the rushing
water that the glass of the window,
whjch. was three-eighths of an inch in
thickness, was smashed like an egg
shell, and fragments of it were found
imbedded in the woodwork on the op
posite side of the house.
Just what damage was done to the
cargo will remain unknown until the
work of discharging has proceeded fur
ther. The Alameda brought 1,700 tons
of freight, and an unusually large num
ber of sacks of mail, there being ISO
bags of papers alone. Sam Parker had
three horses on board which luckily es
caped any worse injury than a chafe
Among the notable passengers were
Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Parker and
Prince and Princess Kawananakoa.
Washington's birthday was celebrat
ed on board by an entertainment in
honor of America's first Fresident. The
program was as follows:
Song "America," Passengers.
"The Day We Celebrate," Col. Z. 8.
Song (Hawaiian) "Mikioi." East Ka-
Banjo Solo G. Goodsell.
Short Talk Capt. C. F. Herriman.
Guitar Solo II. A. Morrison.
Stunt Messrs. Sexton and Kooser.
Song Princess Kawananakoa and
Mips Alice Campbell.
Song "Aloha oe," Passengers. 1 "
The toast of the President of the
United States wfis responded to by Col
onel Spaulding, and drunk standing.
King Edward VII and Governor Dole
were also toasted, and the toasts were
responded to by Captain Herriman
and B. F. Dillingham, respectively.
The Alameda will sail for San Fran
cisco next Wednesday afternoon.
Japs Drowned in a Gala.
HILO, Feb. 21. Last Saturday after
noon the wind blew a sale. The pile
driver at the mouth of the Waiakea riv
er was blown upon the beach but got
ten off without damage. In the tossing
about, one of the Japanese crew became
alarmed, jumped overboard and attempt
ed to swim ashore. He was drowned
before the eyes of his comrades. At 8
o'clock Saturday night, Japanese fish
ermen, with their nets, drapeed the wa
ters and recovered the body.
Three Japanese fishing smacks were
blown five miles down the Waiakea
coast to various kinds of disaster. One
boat with two men was smashed against
the rocks. One occupant was drowned,
the other saved. Two natives saved an
other Japanese whose boat was a total
wreck. One boat with two Japanese is
still missing. Monday, some people at
Hakalau with glasses descried a flutter
ins sail, apparently five to ten miles at
sea. It was supposed to be one of the

SAX FRANCISCO, Feb. 15. Direct
communication between this city and
Manila has been established by the joint
action of the Occidental and Oriental,
Pacific Mail and Toyo Kisen Kaisha
lines, and a series of sailing dates was
yesterday announced. They are so ar
ranged that one of the nine steamers
belonging to the three companies will
call at Manila once a month, the Peru
of the Pacific Mail being scheduled to
make the initial trip on March 5th
next. The Gaelic of the Occidental and
Oriental follows on April 8th and the
Nippon Maru of the Japanese line on
May 9th. Thereafter they alternate in
It is claimed that the arrangement
was brought about by the recent union
of the San Francisco commercial bod
ies for the purpose of -getting Govern
ment aid to secure direct communica
tion. A joint committee was formed,
consisting of George A. Newhall, pres
ident of the Chamber .of Commerce; G.
W. McNear, president ;o.f the Produce
and Merchants' Exchange; and An
drew Carrigan, of Dunham, Carrigan
& Hayden, with E. Scott as secretary.
This committee visited Washington a
year ago, and had several talks with
President McKinley and Secretary of
War Root, but because they had no
practical plan to propose at that time
nothing was done.
Since then the practical plan devel
oped through the co-operation of the
three big lines, each one shouldering
an equal responsibility in the venture.
There can be no question that they
have been assured of Government aid.

vessel will succeed in getting her full
quota, and depart for the coast next
The bark St. Katherine was shifted
from her mooring in the harbor Tuesday
and anchored outside, where she dis
charged her rock ballast. Captain
Saunders expects to get a full load of
sugar with very little delay.
Captain McAllman, of the bark Martha
Davis, anticipated departing for the
coast before the week drew to a close.
The bark will have a good load of sugar
for the San Francisco refineries.
The American bark Santiago succeeded
in stowing a considerable amount of su
gar through her hatches during the
week. Captain Ingalls bears the proud
distinction of having made one of the
liveliest passages from San Francisco to
Honolulu during the year 1901.
It is expected that the ship Falls of
Clyde will sail for San Francisco about
the first part of the coming week. Her
cargo of sugar is being rapidly placed

A Naval Grating, Signal Locker

VICTORIA, B. C, February 11. The
sloop-of-war Egeria returned to Es
quimau this morning from a cruise
along the west coast of Vancouver Isl
and and around the Scott islands in
search of news or wreckage of the
missing war ship Condor. On her deck
was the Condor's boat picked up by In
dians at Ahousat in December, which

cutter Grant bought from the Indians
for his dress sword and delivered to

all bearing the naval broad arrow. One
of the sheaths found by Dr. Stephen
and Paymaster Wyllis while walking
along the beach at Clayoquot was iden
tified as the royal from the royalmast
truck. All these articles were no doubt
from the Condor, and it was reported
that part of a topmast had been found
by some white settlers not far from
where the other things came ashore.
The Egeria ran on a rock near Clay
oquot and was fast for twelve hours,
but suffered no serious damage. The
weather throughout her trip was rough
and prevented more than a superficial
search along the rock-bound coast. At
Queen's harbor she met the Grant,
which Captain Simpson boarded and
recognized the boat which Captain
Tozier had bought from the Indians
as the Condor's. The other articles
might belong to any British war ship,
but they are certainly from a naval
vessel, a.nd as no other ship on this
station has lost any gear recently,
there is no doubt that they are from

banked fires and may put to sea again
at any moment to resume bei quest.
