The Ono Officer Saved From the
Eber Procresa of tbe Hnrrlcane.
Hundreds of people trere'on the beach by
this time and the work of destruction had
occurred in full Tiew of them all. They
stood for a moment appalled by the awful
scene, and then a cry of horror arose from
the lips of every man who had, seen nearly
& hundred of his fellow creatures perish in
an instant. Then, with one accord, they all
rushed to the water's edge nearest the point
where the Eber had foundered.
The natives ran into the surf far beyond
the point where a white man could have
lived, and stood waiting to save any poor
creature who might rise from the water.
There was no thought of the war between
Germany and Samoa. There was no sign
oj enmity against the people who had car
ried off their king and banished him on a
lonely isle a thousand miles from his native
The savage forgot the oppression which a
civilized people placed upon him, and he
now held out his hand to save a human life,
caring little whether it was that of a friend
or a foe.
An Officer's Miraculona Escape.
As first it seemed as if every man on the
ill-fated steamer had gone to his death, not
even a hand appearing from the berths
where the Eber sank. But the breakers on
the reef had hidden a few struggling men
who had-come to the surface ana struck out
ieebly for the shore. Presently a man who
had not been noticed before was seen cling
ing to the piling under a small wharf near
by. Willintr hands soon grasped him and
drew him upon the shore. He was a young
man with a handsome, boyish face and wore
the uniform of an officer. He proved to be
Lieutenant Gaedeke, and he was the only
officer of the Eber who was saved. He was
in a dazed condition and unable to realize
his escape. Lieutenant T. G. Fillette, the
marine officer of the Nipsic, who has been
in command of the guard atthe AmericanJCon
aulate for several months, took the German of
ficer by the aim, led him to the Consulate and
provided him with dry clothing.
Fonr sailors from the Eber were seen strag
gling in tbe water near shore abont the same
time. They were quickly rescued by natives
and also taken to the American Consulate.
None of them seemed to know how they es
caped. Tbey felt themselves at the surface of
tbe water and were soon grasped by natives and
Only a Few Were Saved.
There were 6 officers and TO men on the
Eber when she struck the reef, and of these
5 officers and GO men were lost. lieutenant
Gaedeke, the survivor, was almost heart
broken over the sad fate of nls fellow officers
and men. He stated that be was officer ot the
watch, ana was on the bridge when the Eber
went down. All the officers were below, aud
were possibly crushed to. death. Soon arter
the steamer sank be found himself floating
on the water, and without being aware of any
effort on his part drifted ashore, and was savei
It was about 6 o'clock in tbe morning when
the Eber foundered. Durinc the excitement
attending that calamity the other vessels had
been for tbe moment forgotten, but it was soon
noticed that the position of several of them
had become more alarming. The Adler
had been swept across the bay, being for a mo
ment in collision with the Olpa. She was now
close to the reef, about 200 yards west of the
point wbere the Eoer struck. She was ap
proaching her doom broadside on, and in half
an hour she was lifted on top of the reef and
turned completely over on her side. Nearly
every man was thrown into the water.
One Fortunate Feature.
Fortunately, however, the Adler was thrown
so far up on the reef that when she turned over
on her side nearly tbe entire hull was out of
.water. Her deck was at right angles with the
water, and was facing the shore. Consequently
that portion of tbe vessel was well protected
from tbe storm. Most of the men who were
struggling in the water had but a few feet to
swim to reach the deck, where they clung to
the guns and masts In safety.
Of the ISO officers and men aboard, 20 men
were drowned or killed when the steamer cap
sized. Allot the officers, including Captain
Fritz, who was in command of the German
squadron, were saved. Many on the Adler
were badly injured, amonc them being Captain
Fritz, who rerelved a severe shock and a num
ber of cuts and bruises.
The natives stretched a rope from the shore
to tbe deck of the Adler during the day, and a
number of sailors escaped in that way. But
the rope parted before all had quit the vessel,
and the others were not taken off till next day.
They clung to the wreck during the long weary
hours of the day and night, and were greatly
exhausted when the storm subsided and boats
could be sent out to take them off. The bottom
of the Adler, however, formed such a protec
tion against the storm that the men aboard
were comparatively safe.
ON BOABD THE NIPSIC.
Tne American Crew Make a Desperate
. Attempt to Save Their Tessel A
Number of Collisions Add New
Horrors to the Situation.
Just after the Adler struck the attention
of everyone was directed toward the Nipsic.
She was standing off the reef with her head
to the wind, but the three anchors which
she had out at the time were not holding.
The steamer was beating back toward the
point where the Eber went down. It was
only by most skillful management that her
officers and crew were saved from the same
fate that befell the Eber.
The Nipsic also narrowly escaped de
struction by being run into by the Olga.and
it was the blow which she received from that
Tessel that finally sent her ashore. The
Nipsic had on all the steam it was possible
tor her to carry, and had just succeeded in get
ting clear of the reef when the little schoon
er Lilly got in her track and was cut down. Tbe
Olca was bearing down and the latter vessel
was trying to avoid collision with the Olga
when she struck the Lilly.
The schooner sank out of sight in a moment.
Captain Douglass, a pilot living in Apia, An
tony Ormsny, a trader, and a Hawaiian native,
all struck out for the Olga, but only one was
saved. Douglass sank underneath the Olga
twice, but finally succeeded in grasping one of
tbe anchor chains and drew himself np on the
steamer. Ormsby almost reached the chain,
but was washed away and drownea. The
Hawaiian wag swept out to sea. life bnojs
were thrown to him from the Calliope and Van
dalia, but he was not able to save himself.
Trying- to Lighten the Ship.
The Nipsic got well away from the reef after
she struck the Lilly, and her men had attached
a hawser to a heavy eight-inch rifle on the for
ward deck and were preparing to hoist the
-gun overboard to assist her anchors, when tbe
Olga again bore down upon her. The Olga
struck tho Nipsic amidships; her bowsprit
passed over the port side of the Nipsic, and
after carrying away a boat and splintering the
rail, came in contact with the smokestack.
Tbe smokestack was struck fairly in the center
and fell to the deck with a crash like thunder.
It .was difficult to realize for a moment what
Great confusion occurred. The crew be
lieved that the steamer was goinc down, and
.men rnn up tbe rigging for safety. The officials
allayed their fears as well as tbey were able.
The iron smokestack rolled from side to side
with every movement of the vessel, and men
ran to keep clear, of its track. Heavy blocks
were finally placed nnder it, but at that time it
was found that the Nipsic had swung around
and was again approaching tbe reef. It was
an anxious moment for all on board. They
had seen tbe Eber strike on the same spot, and
it seemed certain that they would go down in
the same way.
Having lost her smokestack tbe Nipsic was
unable to keep her steam power up, and it was
useless to attempt to steam out from tbe reef
in the face of the wind. Captain Mullanewas
was upon the bridge at the time, and remained
cool and collected during tbe dangerous mo
ment. Excitement on the Nipsic had reached
the highest pitch. Several men stood by' their
posts bravely, bnt many were demoralized and
refused to listen to orders.
Mnllnne Given Up the Fight.
It was plain that in auotber moment the
Nipsic woujd be upon the reof, and probably
j'cijuanon board would be lost. Uaptaln
Mullane aaw that any further attempt to save
his vessel would be useless, so he gave the
order to beach her. rnn anchor wai sllnniul

cleared the end nfti. .... tr..-. r ,.u ......i
nd other inflammable material were thrown
into the furnaces to keep up the Are. Her
head was put around to the shore and she had
a straight course of 100 yards to the sandy
beach in front of the American Consulate.
Her engines worked as hard as tbe limited
amount of steam wquld permit.
When the Nipsic strucs her engineers did
not take time to stop her engines, and her pro
peller continued to revolve for an hour, while
her bow stuck fast in the sand about 15
yards from the water's edge, and the vessel
swungaround, forming an acute angle with the
line of the shore. Orders were given to lower
two boats. Sailors jumped into one boat, but
the falls did not work properly, and before tho
boat was lowered, one end dropped, The men
were thrown into the water and drowneou ine

shore. Allot the men half swam, half floa.ea.
until they came within reach of the natives
who were standing waist deep in tho suri,
when they were pulled out on the beach.
Several of the sick men were much ex
hausted, but they were quickly removed to the
consulate, and revived in a few hours. Several
men on the Nipsic ran to the rail and jumped
overboard, amonc them being Lieutenant li.
G. Davenport. They all reached the shore In
safety except two sailors, who were unable to
swim through the current, and were swept out
into the bay and drowned. By this time every
man aboard had crowded on the forecastle.
A Line of Rescne.
The natives rushed down near the bow of the
steamer and shouted to those on deck above to
throw a line. Double hawsers were soon made
fast from deck to shore, and the natives gath
ered around the lines to assist the men off.
Senmann Taea, chief of the Apia District, and
Salu Ana. King Mataafa's Secretary, directed
the men in their work. The scene was one of
intense excitement. The seas broke upon the
stem ot the Nipsic with awf nl force, and It
seemed as it the vessel would be shattered to
pieces before the men on her decks could be
saved. The waves were rolling high on the
beach, and the undertow was so strong that
the natives narrowly escaped being washed out
into the bay.
The terrible force of the wind can hardly be
imagined. The rain continued to pour, and
clouds of flying sand grew thicker every mo
ment. Above the roar of the wind and waves
could be heard tbe voices of officers shouting
to tbe men on deck, mingled with the cries and
singing of the Samoans as they stood battling
against the surf, risking their lives to save the
American sailors. Nearly all American and
English residents of Apia were on the shore in
front of the Consulate, and there seemed to be
willingness on tbe part of every man to render
whatever assistance was in his power. Ensign
J. L Purcell, of the Nipsic, who had been on
shore during the night, was up to his waist in
water helping to rescue his comrades from their
Onboard the Nipsic the excitement which
bad prevailed among tbe men just after tbe fall
of the Emokestack had subsided, and there was
no attempt made to leave the vessel in disorder.
Captain Mullane and several other officers
stood by the rail where the hawsers were made
fast and directed the men. All who were
In any way sick qr injured were allowed to leave
first, and after that tbe men came down the
Noble Work of the Natives.
The seas were rolling so high nnder tbe hows
of tbe steamer that when tbe men had ad
vanced ten feet down the ropes they would
often be entirely submerged. Nothing but the
noble efforts of the natives prevented them
from being carried away by the current. As
soon as each man would come within reach he
would be grasped in tbe strong arms of half a
dozen men and carried to tbe Consulate. Most
of tbe men had scant clothing, but a few had
carried some articles in their handkerchiefs,
which they held on to firmly. Captain Mullane
insisted upon being the last man to leave the
ship. He finally found himself on deck with
Lieutenant John A. Shearman and two sailors by
his side. He ordered the sailors to leave, which
The Captain being unable to swim did not
care to trust descending the rope by means of
his hands and legs, as ail tbe others had done,
so he procured an empty water cask which he
attached to the hawser. "When be was seated
in tbe cask Shearman stood alone on the deck
and started his brave commander down the
rope, theplncky Lieutenant then climbed down
the rope in the usual way and Nipsic was left
alone to battle with the waves.
Lieutenant Fillette. of the Marine corps, who
was In charge of the consulate, had anticipated
the destitute condition in which the men had
been, and had brdered a quantity of dry cloth
ing from a neighboring store. As the men
were taken into the consulate be provided
them with dry suits of clothes, and did every
thing possible to. make them as comfortable
as circumstances wonld permit. Vice Consul
Blackloe and several other persons also as
sisted in relieving the men. and Dr. Dren and
his apothecary were busy for several hours in
administering restoratives to those who were
THE OTHEE VESSELS.
A British Ship Escapes After Being In Cola
lislon With the Tandalla The Latter
Forced to the Bench Her Cap
tain Swept From the Deck.
The Nipsic, Adler and Eber were the
smallest ships of -war in the harbor. " The
four large men-of-war, theTrenton, Calliope,
Vandalia and Olga, were still afloat and well
off the reef. Nearly all the sailing craft had
gone ashore. The Trenton stood well out
into the bay, her steam and anchors barely
holding her head up to tbe wind. The Olga
was rolling terribly. The Yandalia and
Calliope were close together, nearest the
reef than the other vessels.
About 10 o'clock in the morning the excite
ment on shore, which bad quieted a little, com
menced to grow more intense as theVandalia
and Calliope were seen in a most dangerous
position and a collision between the two vessels
seemed inevitable. Great waves were tossing
the two vessels about and they were comin"
closer together every minute. The space b
tween the men-of-war was next seen to close
altogether, when suddenly the great Iron prow
of the Englishman arose high in the air on the
cret of an enormous wave and came down
with full force upon the port quarter of -the
The crash wag awful. The jib boom of the
Calliope was carried away, and the heavy tim
bers of the Vandalia were shivered. Every
man who stood upon the poop deck of the Van
dalia was thrown to his feet by the shock. A
hole had been torn belowtbe rail and the water
rushed into the cabin. It was impossible to
ascertain the extent of the damage in a mo
ment, but at the time it seemed tbe Vandalia
had received ber death blow. The men rushed
up tbe hatches in the belief that the steamer
was sinking, and it was only after a great effort
that the officers persuaded them to return to
The Esenpe of the Calliope.
Just after this collision Captain Kane, of the
Calliope, determined to make an effort to steam
ont of the harbor, as he saw that- to remain in
his present position would lead to another col
lision with the Vandalia and throw his vessel
on tbe reef. He accordingly gave orders to let
go all anchors. The Calliope's head was swung
around to wind and her powerful engines were
worked to their utmost capacity. It was an
anxious moment on board tbe corvette, as with
her anchors gone she had nothing but her en
gines to depend upon to keep ber off the reef.
She seemed to make her headway at first
inch by inch, but her speed gradually Increased
until it became evident she could clear the
harbor. As she passed abreast of tbe Trenton,
a great shout went up from our over 400 men
aboard the flagship and threehearty cheers were
given for the Calliope. Three cheers for the
Trenton and the American flag was the answer
that came back from across the angry billows.
Tbe Calliope passed safely out of the harbor
and steamed far out to sea, returning after the
When the excitement on the Vandalia which
followed the collision with the Calliope had
subsided a little. It was found necessary to act
quickly to save the ship. Lieutenant J. W
Carlin, executive officer, was practically In
charge of the vessel, as Captain Rcnoonmaker
had been thrown across the cabin tbe night be
fore and severely injured. His head had been
badly cut and one ear almost torn away by
striking violently against a chair. Notwith
standing his injuries, he faced the storm like a
hero, and stood by tbe side of his first officer
until the sea finally swept him off to his
The Vandalia Beached.
The Vandalia was now fast hearing down up
on tbe reef alongside of the wreck of the Eber,
and hundreds of people who were watching ber
from tbe shore expected to see her strike and
go to pieces every minute, bnt she was seen to
move away from the reef and make her way to
ward the point where the Nipsic lay. Captain
Schoonmaker and Lieutenant Carlin saw it was
useless to make any farther attempt to save the
ship, and as her engines were not powerful
enough to steam ont to sea as the Calliope
had done, they determined to beach tbe ves
It was nearly II o'clock when the ship struck,
and notwithstanding her easy position, it soon
became apparent that her officers and crew
were In great danger. Nearly all of the officers
were on deck, in sight of every one on shore.
Tbe men were scattered about the gun deck
and forecastle, holding on to the "masts and the
sides of tbe ship. In half an hour it was
noticed that the vessel was filling with water
and settling down.
The men on shore were willing to render as
sistance, but were powerless. No boat could
have lived a moment in the surf. Three
natives were found who were-'Willing to vent

Death of a Bravo Captain.
Tour officers were swept from the deck.
Captain Schoonmaker was clinging to the rail
on the poop deck. Lieutenant Carlin was
standing by him and was doing his best to hold
the Captain on, as tbe latter was becoming
weaker every minute. A machine gun stand
ing near by was washed from its fast
enings and sent whirling across tbe
deck. The captain was struck on the head
by the gun and killed outright or knocked in
sensible, for a wave swept him off the deck.
He sank without a struggle, and was seen no
more. Paymaster Arms and Payclerk Roach
were lying npon the deck exhausted, but cling
ing with all the strength they possessed to any
thing which came within their grasp. They
were swept off together.
Men were now being swept from the decks
and rigging half a dozen at a time, and a tew
who felt themselves growing too weak to bold
on much longer, jnmped into the water, deter

selves. Nearly every man who jumped or was
washed Into the water succeeded in reaching
the side of the Nipsic, and a number of them
climbed upon the deck with tbe aid of a rope.
Those who reached the deck assisted tbe oth
ers who were struggling in the water and many
lives were saved in this way.
WEECK OF THE TBEN3M.
The American Flag-Ship Finally Forced on
the Reefs How Her Crew Were
Rescued Confusion After
the Storm. ,
At 4 o'clock in the afternoon the position
of the Trenton and the Olga had changed,
and they were almost on, the reef near the
point where the Eber struck. The Trenton
was coming down upon the Olga, and a
collision seemed inevitable. The condition
of the flag-ship was most pitiable.
The water rushed in on the berthdecks, fonnd
its way to tbe batches, and poured down into
the fireroom. All attempts to keep it o'utfalled
and In a short time the firemen were up to
their waists in water and all the fires were ex
tinguished. From 10 o'clock in the morning until 6 in the
evening, when she grounded, tbe Trenton held
out against the storm without steam or rndder,
and her escape from total destruction on the
reefs was miraculous. Tbo skillful manage
ment of her navigating officer, T. C. M. Brown,
was all that saved the lives of every man on
board. Lieutenant. Brown ordered the meu
in the port rigging, so that a compact
mass of humanity conld be used as sails and at
the same time keep tbe weight of the vessel on
the side next to tho storm. This novel experi
ment was all that saved the Trenton from com
plete destruction. The winds struck against
the men in the rigging, and forced
the vessel out into the bay again.
She remained there only for a short
time, however, and soon commenced to drift
back against the4)lga, whlcb was still standing
off from the reef, aud holding up against the
storm better than any other vessel in the har
bor bad done. The Trenton came down slowly
on the Olga, and this time it seemed as if both
vessels would be swept to pieces.
Another Collision Inevitable.
A new danger now arose. The Trenton was
sure to strike the Vandalia, and to those on
shore it seemed that the huge hull of the flag
ship would crush the Vandalia to pieces, and
throw the 100 men still clinging to tbe rigging
into the water. Suddenly a shout was borne
across the waters. The Trenton was
cheering the Vandalia. Tbe sound of 450
voices broke upon the air and was heard abovo
the roar of the tempest. "Three cheers for
the Vandallal" was the cry that warmed the
hearts;of the dying men in the rigging. The
shout died away upon the storm, and there
arose from the quivering masts of the sunken
ship a response so feeble that it was scarcely
heard npon shore.
The collision- of the Trenton and Vandalia,
which everyone thought would crush the latter
vessel to pieces, proved to bo the salvation of
the men in the rigging. Ensign Ripley, who
was in the maintop, determined to make an ef
fort to reach shore. He crawled out on the yard
and jumped into the sea. He was swept over
to the stern of tbe Nipsic; but not being able
to draw himself up he swam to apiece of wreck
age near shore. He remained there a few
minutes and then swam into the current. After
a hard struggle he got through the current and
was washed upon the shore.
Rescued In the Morning.
Little conld be done on shore but wait for
morning. Lieutenant Shearman, Ensign Fur
cell and several other persons patrolled the
beach until early morning in the hope of res
cuing any poor fellows who might be seen
struggling in the waves. When day broke,
with tbe aid of the natives, boats were sent out,
and with great difficulty the remainder of the
crew ot tbe Trenton were transferred to tbe
A hasty examination was made of the Nip
sic, apd though there was considerable water
in her bold, she was found in fair condition
and her officers and men were sent aboard as
quick as possible. Contracts were made with
various parties for feeding, the sailors, though
it was a difficult matter to provide
them with much food during the day. Order
was generally restored in Apia after a few
.days. A large force of Samoans "were put to
work on tbe Nipsic and the steamer was hauled
off. It was found that she was not leaking, but
her boilers were sprung and ber propeller
would not work. Her rudder, smokestack and
most of ber "boats were gone and she was badly
shattered above the water line. All of her
officers and crew are living aboard.
A QUAIffr EGYPTIAN BOOK.
A Papyrus of tbe Ptolemaic Period Presented
to Cornell University.
Ithaca, April 13. Andrew D. White, ex
President of Cornell University, has sent from
Cairo, as a present to the university library, a
paoyrus found about two years ago in the
tomb of a priest of the Ptolemaic period. In
his letter, which is dated March 28, he sajs of
this interesting document:
"It represents certain chapters of the 'Book
of the Dead,' is a beautifully executed, per
fectly .preserved and complete document in
every respect. The inscriptions are partly
hieroglyphic partly hieratic, and in the midst
of them are very striking representations of a
rectlcus sort, the most remarkable being 'The
Last Judgment of the Soul Before Isis and
Osiris.' This embraces Osiris upon his'throne,
tbe great balance before blm, tbe weighing of
the dead priest's heart In one scale against the
'Image of Truth' in the other, while about the
balance are grouped the weighing, the record
ing and the accusing gods, tbe four funeral
genii and the 42 assessors."
Mr. White also sends 140 large photographs
illustrative of ancient and modern Egyptian
art and a collection of more recent works on
. FINED FOE CHEATING HIMSELF.
The Punishment Accorded to an Overgener
ous English Coal Dealor,
Prom the Loudon Globe. 1
"Do good by stealth and blnsh to find it
fame" may have been excellent advice when
Mr. Pope wrote, but it would require reshaping
to bring it into harmony with modern require
ments. A Yorkshire coal dealer, who has been
doing good by stealth on quite an extensive
scale, now has canss to blush at finding himself
fined by a a police magistrate.
This philanthropic trader owns a weighing
machine which gives his customers 21 pounds
overweight on every hundredweight. Some
time ago his attention was officially drawn to
the fact, and he received solid warning that if
he continued his sinful benevolence he would
be summoned. A weighing machine, that-gives
overweight is as illegal as one that does tbe
other thing, tbe law demanding a perfect ad
justment of balance. This coally Samaritan re
fused to believe, however, that his stealthy
benefactions were punishable, and so persisted
in adding tbe little bonus to every hundred
weight of black diamonds that left his shop.
A fine of five shillings and costs is tbe result,
the bench expressing the opinion that it looked
a little hard to punish a man for cheating him
self to benefit his customers. It does look hard,
no doubt, but what, a splendid advertisement!
