Then the trouble began. On May 1 the Dolphin sailed from Kw York for San Francisco Off Cape Hattoraa a violent storm was passed, through, which tosted tho wcathorly tumltUe of tho ship to .the utmost and sattefiod the crow that she could live in any kln of weather, , The forecastle, however, proved to be almost uninhabitable, owing to the quantity of wntw that found Its Avny below througl ihe ventilators. So Captain O'Brlca brought all the forward hands on the uppor deck and gavs them state rooms to JJvo In. This act of humanity almost proved the undoing of all the white mon on board. After a run of nine days Saint Lucia, in tho West Indies, was reacned and the vossol was coaled. On May 11 a rtart for Montevideo was made, and up to that time not a sign of trouble had developed among tho crow. Soon after gotttng under way three stowaways woro found In tho steward's It was then blowing a gale and the CCPtaln could not put back to land thorn. It would have been better for alt hands had J10 dono so. The next dar one of the men who had been shipped at Saint Lucia recognized the mon. One. he said, was a notorious bandit. -Another was an escaped murderer and the third was a lunatic Captain O'Brien's Informant had been a policeman in the Barbadoes and he said there was a hue and cry all over the "West Indies after these men. Chief Steward Edwart Palmer, reinforced by these desperadoes, now to show himself. The third day out ho got into a squabble with a fireman named McAllister and nearly Jellied hlw with a heavy chair. Palmer is a bcrty'negro. and had not the driven him back at the point of their pistols he would have assuredly killed the fireman. As It was six itltehes had to be taken in the fireman's scalp and he was laid up for the remainder of the voyage. From that time on there was nothing but trouble aboard, and several tlcjes, the blacks arose and attempted to overpower the whites. A DOZEN IN IRONS. "When the Dolphin arrived at Montc video there were a dozen Saint Luclaus In irons, while the chief steward had fesen disrated and was under Captain O'Brien appealed to the United States Consul at Montevideo for assistance. Ue wanted to leave his mutinous men ashore, but the Coasul would not have it that way, and said he must take the men to the first American port, which meant, to all Intents and purposes, the ship's destination. Soon after leaving Montevideo the Dolphin ran Into a pampero and everything movable was washed away. Oa jeachlngPunta Arenas, at the entrance to the Straits of Magellan, thev found that the town had nearly been out of existence by the Patagonlans. The natives had made a descent upon the place. ItlUed fourteen of theChllano soldiers and set fire to the building. A delegation came out from the post. And after telling their woes to Captain j O'Brien, asked for some nrearms aau powder. Tho captain presected them with a three-Inch gun and a quantity of ammunition. In return the Ohilaaos sent two boatloads of fruit aad and frh meat mmmmtmmmmmm -- - -.v ..'-' v, r, s . ftrfl wax - 4 . .",' . . THE HOXOITJLTJ BEPBBLICAN, S1X0BDJLT, JTJIiT 21, 1SG0.

When the western end "of the strains was reached, instead of standing out J to sea Captain O'Brien tcrnd into I Smyth Channel. The Terra, del Fcegana new began to make trouble. FUEGANS ilAKE TROUBLE. "There was trouble enough aboard, God 'knows. said Purser Hume yesterday, "but these natives kept our hearts in our mouths all the time. The second night we were in Smyth Ctannel the alarm of fire was turned In. There was a small blare aft, which we soon put oat, bnt after that there was no sleep at nights for anyone. The Terra del Fuegans keep a firc'In their canoes all the year round, and when the father dies or Is incapacitated the son takes op the job of keeping the Game alight-At night they steal up alongside of a ship and lighting a torch at the fire they silently throw it through a porthole. Should the vessel catch fire they make an attack while all hands are engaged la fighting the flames, and if tho fire has gained any headway the end comes sooner or later. The sailors ar6 either slaughtered while escaping In the boats or are murdered aboard the vesseL A year ago a Chilean gunboat was set afire by these miscreants and everyone of the crew was butchered. "The next night we were ready for the red devils from the 'Land of Fir?.' The chief engineer had all the metal stauncheons and every piece of iron that the natives could touch If they attempted to come aboard connected with Uid dynamo, and the current was kept aofcg all night long. One native touched a live wire, but all we know about the matter was the shriek of agony that came up out of the darkness. For four days and nights we were on the rack. During the day the natives would come alongside and want to trade, but we kept them off. At night they hovered around us like si lent specters, and on many an occasion there was a cry of fire and a rush to put a lighted brand that had come aboard from the darkness. "An honr before we left Smyth Channel the natives came alongside and oae of the men bought a small pig for four empty tomato tins and a jackknlfe. He got the porker aboard all right, but as ht was leading It forward to the slaughter it got away. A pig hunt followed, but after knocking every table in tho dining saloon down and mixing up every man on the ship the porker made his escape through a side port and was picked up by the waiting Terra del Fuegans. Tho man who made the purchase swears the animal was trained. He never saw his pig or his tomato cans again. NEGROES RAN AMUCK. , "We arrived at Coronel on June 14 and then the trouble aboard broke out into an open rupture. It rained all that day and no coaling could be done. The Eremen and coal passers seized the opportunity to get drunk," and tho negro cooks and waiters followed suit. When the two met on the main deck there was a clash, and the negroes got the worst of it. They soon turned tho tables, however. They seized the fire axes and dared the whites to como on. Led by tho chief steward, the Salat Lucians drove tho firemen and coal passers Into the rigging. The negroes then began cutting the ship's decks and standing rigging, so Captain O'Brien sent ashore in a hurry for as sictance. United States Consul' J. Henry Downs appealed to the authorities, and thy sent a train ten miles into the Interior for a detachment of troops. The troops arrived a few hours later and were sent aboard the Dolphin, where they had a hard time of It subduing the mutineers. Chief Steward Palmer and five more of the ringleaders were taken ashore and locked up In the calaboose. Among tin ringleaders were the bandit, the murderer nnd the supposed crazy man. They were tried on June 17, and each of them was given three months in the mines, which Is equal to threo years' penal servitude in the United States. Had the ringleaders been sent back aboard by the authorities not an officer would have gone out on her, as the Saint Lucians had evidently made all their plans to capture tho vessel and murder the whites. "While in port some of us determined to take a run ashore. Such u place I have never seen in my life. One-half of the people are lepers and the other half are murderers and cutthroats. They kill for tho sake of killing, and a man with a decent suit on has not a ghost of a show for his life if th ho appears on the streets after dark. When we went ashore Consul Downs advised us to go armed and keep a close lookout. Ho said that three days Leforo he had been attacked and had to kill tho would-be assassin in FELL AMONG CUTTHROATS. "To explain what follows I have to go back to New York. George G. Carroll, the second assistant engineer, is the owner of a fine revolver, which he had loaned to a friend. It was returned to him on sailing day, loaded and all teadj for use, apparently. When we went ashore Carroll put this gun in his hip opeket. and I did the same with mine. Oa our way back to the ship I was a little in advance and hurrying. Suddenly something dropped beside Carroll, and when he looked over his shoulder he saw a dozen leprous looking natives coming toward him, while in the wooden sidewalk at his feet quivered a long knife with a short yellow handle. Carroll at once drew his gun and threatened the crowd with it. They fell back a few paces, and he started on his way to the boat again. The natives then started for him on the run, and Carroll attempted to fire .his pistol into the mob. Five UmesNhe snapped the trigger and five times the gun refused to go oS. With a cry of 'inucho nialo' the natives made for Carroll with their knives drawn. "Luckily a few secoads before I had made a remark to Carroll, and getting no answer, had turned aroaad to sts what was the matter. Seeing the peril my comrade was in, I at once ran to his assistance and re two shots Ino the crowd. Two aea fell and that stopped their advance. While thty were co&sultisg we tarsed sad ran and the natives followed. At the next corner I fired another shot lata them and Carroll snapped his useless sun five times jBore. To ake a. long story fhort, we got aboard la safety, and not a si&b vestured ashore again while the vessel was la port Am investigation of Carroll's pistol showed that hi friend i had brokw the pin ot ,the kamaer. aad the gra "was as Gseless as a piece of scrap iroa.

My neighbor across the street was sick for over a week, had two or three bottles of medicine from the doctor. He used them for three or four days without relief, then called in another doctor who treated him for some days and gave him no relief, so discharged him. I went over to see him the next morning. He said his bowels were in a terrible fix, that they had oeen running oft so long that It was almost bloody flux. I asked him If he had tried Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Remedy and ho said, 'No. I went home and brought him my bottle and gave him one dose; told him to take another dose In fifteen or twenty minutes If he did not find relief, but he took no more and was entirely cured.
