There was a very sad occurrence in front of the HealanI Yacht and Boat Cluu house late Thursday afternoon. The bark Olympic, recently from San Francisco, was alongside the quarantine wnarf. The sailors of the vessel had completed their work and had jumped Into the water for a swim. They went over in front of the clubhouse., and, splashing about for a little while, returned to. the ship. A seaman, Jules de Barre by name, was the only one left behind. Nothing was thought of this, as it was supposed De Barre wished to remain in a little longer. Suddenly the fellow threw up his hands and went down. Sailors hurried over to the place and expert native divers were soon In the water, but nothing could be seen of the man. He never came to the surface, and, drag as they might, the sailors were unable to find the body. It is supposed De Barrecame to the deep water suddenly, and being a very poor swImmer,.rolled, down the embankment, Instead of coming up. It is very probable that he got caught in something at the bottom, slse he surely would have come to the surface soon. Captain Gibba of the Olympic says that De Barre was one of the very best men he had aboard his ship. He was quiet and gentlemanly, and always obeyed orders. He was a Frenchman by birth, about 25 years of age, and Joined the Olympic in San Francisco. The Olympic returned to the wharf yesterday and discharged her deckload in the forenoon. In the afternoon the hatches were removed and the men began to take the freight out oi the hold. SAIL VERSUS STEAM. NEW YORK. June S. The friends of the sailing ship have found encouragement for the future of sailing vessels in the ocean carrying trade in the announcement that the Standard Oil WANT . i. f. .--.ST ', WE S rx ISTERS ' Two of our best customers are sisters. - The older, when she got married, traded with us 'because her mother did. When the younger followed suit in matrimony,, she did likewise i in the matter of selecting a grocer. Those two ladies knew that'. ' thev were certain "to get only the best from iis. They ilimUayQgoJfc f rom" .otifcrs,, bntieyjwere 'taking no chances' Can' vou blame tliem? k , .-- f Pywwr !e e?Trw Trltli Elc instead of steamships, for part of its frrfgbt business. The company Is balldins faro skips here and the European branch is Building: tsro -ships In Europe. At times the company hays ships, hut It is not to the market to acquire a fleet, as has been erroneously reported. It owns about a dozen sailing vessels now and is building these four others. The two vessels ouilding in this country are being built in Plainer-by Arthur SewalL They are to be full-rigged ships, 320 feet long and 45 feet beam, and will have a measurement of about 3300 tons gross. They are being built because the company finds that for a certain part of Its carrying trade sailing vessels can be utilized to better advantage than steamships. The price of coal and engineers' wages have advanced in recent years, raising the cost of transportation either in tramp steamers or steamers owned and op erated by shippers. For the Asiatic trade of the Standard Oil Company in case oil. it has been found that sailing ships can be operated more economically. The company always has freight outgoing for them, and the time of passage is not of material moment. As It always has outgoing freigut and frequently can get return, cargoes. It sees In the ownership of its own sailing ships a good business proposition. The ships bring- back from Calcutta Jute,.from Manila hemp and sugar, arid from other ports sugar, tea and matting Certain goods that must be here for certain seasons have to be shipped by steam vessels, but many staples can-as well be shipped by sail and have the advantage of lesser cost of transportation. Saling ships can carry freight 10,000 miles for ?5 a ton, cubic make money, a price at which steamships could not operate. THE GRANT'S TRIP. Few vessels have had more narrow escapes in as short a space of time as the United States transport Grant The last round trip "to the Philippines has been a succession of narrow escapes, and it is only due to the vigilance of the officers that the transport finally reached port. Soon after leaving San Francisco one of her inlet valves became clogged, and the water rushing in filled the engine-room until the fires under -the lower boiler were drowned out and the engineers and firemen were working up to their waists in water. While the run to San Francisco was, under way the man on the lookout ran up against a mirage. He thought land was straight ahead and so reported it to the bridge. The officer on watch saw an outline looming up, and as it was apparently capped by a light Tie gave the signal to stop the ship and sent for the captain.

When, therefore, the fog: bank took on the appearance of the Island and the moraine star showed up like a beacon on its peak, the lookout thought the land was dead ahead, and so the engines were stopped and reversed and the ship was going full speed astern when Captain Bufoni reached the bridge. It. did not take long to discover the mistake, and in half an hour the Grant was once more on'her course. Reed Rocks have not been seen since 1SSS, when the ship Yankee nearly ran them down. They haTe always been classed as "doubtful," and the chances are that the old Yankee skipper was fooled by the morning star and a cloud, as was the lookout on the Grant. From Honolulu to Manila and from .there to Nagasaki the voyage of the Grant was uneventfuL The run from Nagasaki to San Francisco made up for the monotony, however. When about five days from San Francisco fire broke out in the engine room. Escaping ammonia was Ignited by a spark froni the pipe of a careless engineer, and In a few moments the engine room was in a blaze. A fire alarm was turned In, and about three minutes later Chief . Oflicer Crosky had three streams of water playing on the flames, and every man on the transport was at his place. It was a close call and men on the vessel were still busy repairing damages when the ship docked. In spite of all her mishaps, the Grant came into the dock looking as spick and span as a yacht, and she will be ready to sail on July 1. Call. - NEW TRANSPORT FOR PACIFIC. NEW YORK, June 7. An Erie basin shipbuilding firm has begun work on the transport Kilpatrick, whose reconstruction will cost $40S,000. The Kilpatrick is intended to ply between San Francisco and the Philippines. She will be entirely remodeled, her engines will be overhauled and large steel deckhouses will be built on the spar deck. THE PATHFINDER SURVEY EXPEDITION. SEATTLE, June 13. The Pathfinder, of the Coast and Geodetic Survey, has been scheduled to sail for the North today. The Pathfinder is taking north at the request of ihe Geological Survey six of its officers and nine camp hands. The geological party will "land at Golofin bay with canoes, stores and other equipment.

FIRE IN A COAL SHIP. SAN FRANCISCO, June 10. About S& loss of burning: coal were thrown overboard in midVPaciSc from the British ship Windsor Park, which reached port to-day from Newcastle, N. S. W. The vessel was .104 days oa the voyage, and her long time at sea forsuca a voyage caused some uneasiness among her insurers. When about a month out on her trip the coal that formed her cargo was found to be heating almost under the main hatch. A close watch was kept on it. and 10 days later the heat under the decks became almost unbearable. A thermometer placed among the coals registered a temperature of 116 degrees. Captain Lamhle, for the safety of his vessel, decided that the heating coal should go overboard, and for a week the crew worked night and day jettisoning the dangerous cargo. About midway between the main and after hatches and far down In the hold tha coals were at a red heat ana the men engaged in hoisting it out over the side could only work a few minutes at a shift. THE OVERDUE HENRY CLEMENT. SAN FRANCISCO, June 12. The gamblers in reinsurance got a sad setback yesterday. L3st week the news came from England that the Henry Clement, .on which 95 per cent was paid, had arrived at her destination. The Liverpool Journal of Commerce, commenting upon the news on May 19, said: "To hold the record for slow sailing is an achievement of which few ship owners are desirous, and is in its way a novelty. While Germany possesses the fastest vessel afloat, that country owns the slowest one also. The Henry Clement has arrived once more. Two-hundred and ninety-one days from Hamburg to Kiaochau direct. Her reinsurance premium has risen on two occasions to SO guineas per cent within the last two years. In 1S9S she arrived at Santa Rosalia, Cal., after a passage of 246 days from Hamburg. Moreover, Captain Albrandt seems to avoid signaling other vessels in order to relieve anxiety. The victualing of a vessel for nine months and a half is no easy matter: and, of course, in the case of a sailing vessel, she is generally without such machinery as condensers. At any rate, her recent achievement is the longest voyage ever made." Acting upon this advice, the underwriters here paid up and looked pleasant. A number of the gamblers received large checks, and there was great rejafcia on the Soor of the o coees the however, that tire Keaiy Clesieat has Hot arrived Kiaochaa asd that relasaxaacc oh her is, again quoted at SO gulfieos. The brokers are no-x hunting: up their clients and getllns hack the money paid out under th injpnsoa that th susp had arrived. It is not all plain sailing; howerer, as some of the gamblers protest strongly against returning, the money they received. ARRIVALS. Friday, June 22. Am. bktn. Omega. Harrington, from Tacopilla.

A STURID '& stupid fellow who gauges the quality of groceries by the price has no business to be married. Yet one of this class directed' his wife to buy groceries from another firm because they charged moro for it, and "it must therefore be belter." His better half bought some from us and some from the other house, and showed her husband that they were identical, being put up by the same people, even. This proved conclusively how foolish a man can be when, lie really tries. The lady of the house generally knows where she. can get the most and the best for the money, r Our, prices are hard to match. ;';u:7 " .j. - i W MT mT "P"' "r wr. -v & Amm ". B : '.
