SOCIETY HOLDS 1ETIN0
NEPTUNE AND DAVY JONES.
While- Waiting for America Maru
Navigation is Discussed and Sea
Law Expounded Potter Discourses
on Value of the Bible.
Tin waterfront debating society
met at the Quarantine wharf yesterday
afternoon and had an interesting
discussion, while waiting for the
America Mam. on the heavy drop In
copper when Daw Jones came In.
"What is her teenage?" inquired
"You've too much water ballast on
the brain," responded Neptune. "They
don't reckon in tons in Wall street."
Davy turned the conversation deftly
and imagined he had concealed the
fact that he had been under the impression
that a copper-sheathed ship
had come down.
"What are those girls heading for
the Myrtle boat house for?" demanded
Neptune, his eyes following a school
of disappearing mermaids.
"1 suppose they heard there was
a test of a submarine boat at the
bottom of the bay." replied Davy
Neptune staggered as from a blow,
for well ho knew that Davy's hypothesis
"Well! well! if that don't bent Hie
Dutch;" and Davy Jones, hig'ilv
amused, laid down bis newspaper to
enjoy a snicker.
"What's up?" inquired Nepttiiie.
"Hero's my old friend Captain Polttr
suggesting that every citizen of America
ought to paste on the flyleaf of
the family Bible. Secretarv Hay's
speech at the annual dinner of the
New York Chamber of Coinmeceo, as

"Whst's funny about that?" demanded
Neptunu for Davy was si 111
"Oh. nothing: only if Captain Poster
wants to pigeon-hole Mr. Has''
speech where mortal mnn is not likelv
to see it. he can't do it any better
than to paste it in the family Bible,"
and the Irreverent and hardened Davy
Jones snickered some more.
Trv as he would, it was Impossible
for Neptune to conceal his great joy.
"What's exciting you?" asked Davy
"The mermaids have no stockings
to hang un for Christmas." Again did
the sea king laugh Immoderately.

More Wreckage Found."
That there has been another wreck,
with possible loss of life, in the north
appears certain from pieces of wreckage
that were brought to Vanvouver
two weeks ago by the steamer New
England and of a vessel passed by
the steamer on her way down. The
New England was on Wednesday afternoon
just off Bank Island, on
the eastern side of Dixon entrance,
where a mass cf wreckage drifted
in. There were ship's stanchions, a
curved piece of taffrail. the white
boards of a deck cabin and part of
the mahogany front of a locker.
There was nothing about any of the
wreckage to identifv the ship from
which it came.
The New England people say the
wreckage was new and came from a
small vessel. They are inclined , to
believe that it belonged to the American
schooner Ralph J. Long, which
left Unalaska on November 9th and
was subsequently abandoned 03' her
crew, which is now oa Unalaska island.
As the Ralph J. Long, has been reported
safe at. Port Townsend. the
wreck must be some of other vessel
