THE BURLINGTON FREE PRESS AND TIMES : TITURSDAT, MAY 0, 1912
9 E Many Naval Men Have Maintain. ed Discipline Firmly in Times of Ocean Tragedies. The wrecking of the Titanic, with its nttentlant stories of heroism nnd suffer ing, have quickened the memories of naval otllccrs of sea disasters of tho past. 3'rom the record In the keeping of tho tiavy It would seem that American and Uritlsh discipline has been well main tained In tho times of stress at sea. Tho bandsmen of the Titanic went down to death playing. When the tempest of USS struck the Samoan coast and tho wreck of tho American man-of-war Tren ton, Captain Farqulmr commanding, was imminent, tho members of tho ship's hand took to the rigging of the old wooden fchlp, and were lashed there by the sail ors. Tho bandsmen played "Tho Stnr Span Bled Manner," and the music was heard above tho storm, heartening tho sailors who were battling with death. There were 47 American olllcers and seamen lost In that storm. The records of tho olllcers of the three American ships told in full the tale of the heroism of the en listed men, hut said nothing of their own, The story of the American olllcers' deeds eamo from the pons of admiring allons. Tho story of tho sinking of tho lirltlsh troopship with tho soldiers drawn up in lines upon tho deck, and going to death unflinchingly and In parade formation, is known to every schoolboy of whatever land. How many are there who know that this act of heroism has a parallol in the deeds of the olllcers and crew of an American man-of-war? In January of tho yoar 1670 tho t'nlted States sto.im sloop-of-wnr Oneldn went to the bottom of the sea of Yedflo, carrying with her 14 olllcers and lf,2 men. FATE OF THE ONETDA. It was a dark, foggy night. Suddenly out of the gloom loomed tho prow of u great steamer. Uofore even the discipline of a man-of-war could do anything to avert disaster the stem of tho approaching fcteamcr crashed into the btern of tho Oneida and carried away its whole quar ter. For a reason unexplained to this day, the vessel which struck the Oneida, and which afterward was found to bo the British steamship Bombay, did not stand by to learn tho results of tho collision, or to offer old. A largo number of tho Oneida's boats vero smashed in the collision and mado useless. In the boats that were left there was room for only 30 men. These boats were lowered, and then Capt. E. P. Wil liams ordered tho sick brought up from below. Theso men were placed In tho unin jured boats, completely tilling them. Captain Williams then ordered the sur geon to go with the Invalids. He de murred, saying that ho preferred staying by tho ship. "Your place Is there, doctor," said Cap tain Williams; "mine Is here. I order you to go." Tho surgeon took his place In ono of the boats and cast off, the convalescents netlng as oarsmen. Captain Williams find his officers went to tho bridge. Be low them stood the men In groups, calm nnd motionless. The sick stood by in their boats and saw the last scene of that tragedy nt sea. Tho ship's lamps threw a faint light upon the bridge and over tho forward deck. Tho Oneida slowly settled. Soon its decks were awash. There was one last throb of the ship's engines, a trem bling of tho whole ship's structure, and tho tea claimed 170 gallant American bOUlS. YOUNG OFFICER'S BRAVERY. In November, 1S77, tho new Iron American man-of-war Huron was bound South from New York. When off Nags Head, on the coast of North Carolina, tho Huron struck the rocks iind in loss than an hour tho disaster was completo. Them was a tremen dous sea running. Thero appeared to bo only ono chance to save any part of tho crew. The boats were useless in that jiounllng, grinding saa. A volunteer was asked to attempt to carry a life line to tho shoro. Ensign I.ucion oung, now a roar-aimlral, volun teered to mako tho attompt, although 3ie was told by his captain that tho j'hanco of life was not ono in a thou sand. A seaman named Williams volun teered to accompany the young olllcer. Tho two took what is known as a bal ha, attachoJ n rope, and, making- their way out upon a spar, dropped Into tho water. A wave beat them back ngalnst tho spar, and Young was severely bruised by ths contact. Ho stuck to his task, howover, and with Williams succeeded In escaping death among tho storm-beaten rockB, nnd In gaining a foothold upon tho ran 'Is beyond. The result of tholr lierolsm was tho saving of a part of thn Huron's crew, though the vessel wont to pieces so quickly that tho ros cuo of nil was Impossible. An uncharted reef Is to the sailor like "tVe pestilence that walkoth In darkness." There Is no knowing it, nnd no dodging It. To tlM nautical mind there 1h more reason for ordering n court of Inquiry when a ship has been iunk by a simoon thiiu there Is when it goes Jown as a result to thumping Into something of which thousands of years of navigation and mnp drawing jtavo failed to show tho existence. However, courts of Inquiry always pro ordered, Tho cruiser Charleston ran on a rock of which no ono kniw the oxlstonco off the Philippines coast in tho year litOO, Tho case Is not with out many parallels. Admiral Klciiid, who died soon after tho Spanish War, once lost tho ship of which ho was In rommnnd in tho South Pacific. The wlmlral at that tlmo was a lUutenant rommanJor In charge of the steam rdoop SaglnHW. Ho had been ordered 1o tho far South to look up the possi bilities of Ocean Island as an anchor- ngo, and as a place of replenishing water Bupplles. LOSS OF THE SAGINAW. It was one of those errands on which fi government senJs Its naval vessels when H hasn't much for Its officers to do. Thn Saginaw neared the latitude r.r.rl t Vi n 1 n 1. ir 1 1 1 ll ft ff tllA IttlntlH nnllcrVlt at an early hour of the morning, All night long tho commanding officer hod loen on deck, Tho soa In which he tvnn sailing was practically unexplored 1rho vessel's speed was Jlmlnlsho.1 to Qfour knots, then to less than three, no I stUicrp wcro , constant soundtngti wiUj HEROES Of SEA DISASTERS tho lead. Thoro was n light wind dead astern. Suddenly the cry "nroakprs nhoadl" camo from tho bow, and tho command was given to back tho en gines. Tho Saginaw's topsails had been set for some time, and with the broosso whore it was thcro wns not power enough In tho englno to drive tho ship back. It was an "uncharted" reef that tho Saginaw had struck in a mlnuto or two, and tho water pouring Into tho great hola In her how soon compcllol tho crow to tako to tho boats. Day light showol Ocean lslnn.1, and there they landed, subsequently removing to tho shore large quantities of tlu stores from tho vessel, Ocean Island was uninhabited. It was far out of tho lino of ocean traffic and 1,600 mites from tho nearest port from which nld might bo summoned. Commander Slcard asked for Ave men to volunteer to attempt to reach Hono lulu In an open boat. It was a weak hope, but every man In the Saginaw's outllt volunteered for tho attempt. Com mander Slcard selected Lieut. Talbot, Coxswain William Helford and Seamen 1'eter Francis, James Mulr and John An diews for the expedition. Ono of the Saginaw's small boats was partly decked over, a mast was put In place, and provisions and a compass were stowed on board. For a week the little boat kept on Its way, olllcers and men working by turns nt the oars. Sometimes the wind helped a little, hut moro fre quently It was dead ahead, and they could only creep along through laboring hard at the oars. Then u gale camo down upon them nnd threatened them with annhllatlon. For 4 hours no man slept. Two of tho crow worked to kcop tho little boat's head up to the wind, while tho others paled. Fin ally tho storm fell, nnd for 24 hours the craft lay to to glvo exhausted nature a rhnnco to recover. The provisions had been almost ruined by sea water, and almost all the fresh water had been lost. The food nauseated the men and created a burning thirst, which they dared not fullyV quench be cause of the shortness of the water sup ply. Lieut. Talbot was seemingly nt tho point of death; yet he managed to keep up n cheerful faco and to Inspire his sub ordinates by force of a plucky example. DOLED OUT WATER BY DROPS. After days of but little headway and Increasing exhaustion tho officer In com mand came to tho conclusion that ono of the marine Instruments was at fault and that they wero out of their course. This knowledge came to tho men like a death stroke. Tho boat's head was changed, however, and on they went once more. Three days passed by. The wnter was doled out by drops. Two of the men were so far gone that they lay nlmot unconscious nt tho bot tom of the boat. The tongues of all were so swollen that they could no longer swallow food. At the close of one of these dreadful days land was sighted. Lieut. Talbot and Coxswain Halford. with a will bom of spirit rather than of strength, manngod to head the boat to ward the shoro and to make some llttlo progress by rowing. At dawn tho next day they saw tho shore before them boyond a white wall of surf. Thero were men on the beach and tho marlnerB knew they were seen. At this supremo moment of Joy the little craft struck a reef and was overturned. All of that heroic crew were too weak to struggle, and all save ono went down to death with the longed-for-land almost un der their feet. Halford alone wns saved. A great breaker bore him toward tho sandy shore, nnd tho men rushing into the surf drew him to land. When they had resuscitated him tho coxswain found that he was on one of tho Hawaiian Is lands. His story was soon told and within a day steamships were sent from Hono lulu to tho rescue of Flcnrd. The Sagi naw officers and crow were found all well. Four men ha1 laid down their lives to mnke the rescue possible. the M"tniini:i) screens. It will soon bo tlmo for digging in the wet and clammy soil, It will soon be time to swat tho flies again.
