The fTallotl. a ship of English origin,
bat of very shady record, hu been pur
sued and captured by a cruiser which
found her trespassing- In forbidden waters
anil wrecked her engine with a shell. She
was found to be laden with stolen pearls.
The Victorious warship towed her captive
to land a remote Island under the trop-lc-but
meanwhile the. chief engineer, Mr.
Wardrop, succeeded In concealing certuln
parts of the machinery, which was not
ftitthcr tampered with. The crew, after
period of cruel treatment in the Jungles,
are Imprisoned in their own vessel, which
In tuposed to be wrecked beyond repair.
Mr. wa,rdrop, however, resolves to put, the
engine (n working order, and If possible
escape. The task Is terrible: but the men,
though almost swooning from pain and
t-xtiaustloix, urged and driven by War
drop's relentless will-force, have In part
succeeded. They are now endeavoring to
straighten the huge steel piston bars.
- Rut Ft' Is curious that no man knows
how the rods were straightened. Tne
crew of the Hallotls remember that
week very dimly, as a fever putient re-
members the delirium of a long night.
There were fires everywhere, they say;
the whole ship was one consuming fur
nace, and the hammers were never still.
No,w, there could not have been more
i man one nre at tne most, ror Mr. war
drop distinctly recalls that no straight
ening was done excent under his own
ye. They remember, too. that for
many years voices (rave orders whlcn
they obeyed with their bodies, but their
minds were abroad on.a'l the seas. It
seems to them that they stood through
days and nights slowly sliding a bar
backward and forward through a
white glow that was part of the ship.
They remember an Intolerable noise In
their burning heads from the walls of
the stokehole,. and they remember be
ing savagely beaten by men whose eyes
seemed, asleep. When their shift was
ovpr they would draw straight lines in
the air, anxiously and repeatedly, and
would question one another In .their
leep.Jcrylng: "Ib she straight?"
At last they do not remember
whether this was by day or night Mr.
Wardrop began to dance clumsily and
Wept the whlla, and they, too, danced
sited and Savage Swarmed Down Ucr
"ttnd wept and went to sleep twitching
all over; and when they woke men said
that the rods were straightened and no
f one did any work for two days, but lay
on'th6 decks arid ate fruit. Mr. War
drop would go below from time to time
and nat the two rods where they lay,
and they heard him singing hymns.
' Then his trouble of mind went from
him, and at. the end of the third day's
Idleness he made a drawing in chalk
upon the deck, with letters of the al
phabet af the angles. He pointed
out that, though the piston rod was
' more lor less straight, the piston rod
' cross head tht thing that had been
'jammed slcfeways in the guides had
been badly strained, and had cracked
the lower end of the piston rod. He
was going to forge and shrink - a
wrought Iron collar on' the neck of the
piston rod where It joined the cross
head, .and from the collar he would bolt
a Y-shaped piece or Iron, whose lower
rfrrfls',8hoit!d be" bolted Into the cross
head. If anything more were needed
they could uue up the last of the boiler
Bo the forges were lit again, and
men burned their bodies, but hardly
felt the pain. ' The finished connection
was not beautiful, . but It seemed
?trong enough at least as strong as
he rest of the machinery: and with
'that lob their labors came to an end.
All- that remained was to connect up
t'he engines' and to get food and water.
'The skipper and four men dealt with
'the Malay boat builder by night chief -'ly;
It was no time to haggle over the
price of sago and dried fish. The others
stayed aboard and replaced piston, pis
ton rod, cylinder cover, cross head and
bolts with tHe aid of the faithful don
key engine. The cylinder cover was
hardly 'steam proof, and the eye of
science might, have, seen, In the curve
: of the connecting rod. a flexure some
thing, like. .that of a Christmas tree
candle which had melted and been
straightened by hand - over a stove;
bvit. as Mr. Wardrop said: "She didn't
hit any'thrng."- '
i As soon as the last bolt was In place,
men tumbled over one another In their
anMety to set . to .the hand starting
gcr.r. the wheel and worm by which
engines can be moved where there Is
no r steana .aboard. They nearly
wrenched off the wheel; but It was
evident to the blindest eye that the
engines moved. They did not revolve
In their prblts with any enthusiasm,
aa good machines should. Indeed, they
groaned hot A little:' but they moved
over and came to rest In a way which
' proved that they still recognised man's
hand. Then Mr. Wardrop sent his
slaves Into the darker bowels of the
engine room and stokehole and fol
lowed them with a flare- lamp. The
boilers - were sound, but would take
no hfcrm from a little scaling and
cleaning. Mr. Wardrop would not have
anyone over aealouu, for he feared
what the next stroke of the tool might

they believed him. They did not ask
too much of what they met, but pol
ished and .tallowed and scraped It to
a false brilliancy.
"A lick of paint would make me
easier In my mind." said Mr. Wardrop,
plaintively. "I know half the condenser-tubes
are started: and the propeller
shaftln's God knows 'low far out of
the true, and we'll need a new air
pump, an" the main-steam leaks like
a sieve, but paint's like clothes to a
man, an' ours is near all gone."
The skipper unearthed some stale
ropy paint of the loathsome green that
they used for the InHtdes of sailing
ships, and Mr. Vardrop spread It abroad
lavishly to give the engines self-respect.
His own was returning day by day,
for he wore his lion-cloth continuously;
but the crew having worked under or
ders did not feel as he did: the com
pleted work satisfied Mr. Wardrop. He

the captain forbade him. They had not
yet recovered their self-respect.

"How long will you take to got

Be sure of her first: we can't afford
to go out half a mile and break down,"
said the skipper.

two in the morning, having cut her

pleasure that the engines should strike
up a tnunaering half-Bens-over chanty
that echoed among the hills. Mr. War

to the new song.

showed her out of sl-ht of land, and
there was a visible ripple under her

her bowels, and, as though the noise
had called It, there shot along across
the level sea a swift, dark prau, hawk
like and . curious, which presently
ranged alongside and hailed, wished to
know If the Hallotls were helpless.
Ships, even the steamers of the white
men, had been known to break down In
those Beas. and the honest Malay and
Javanese traders would sometimes aid
them in-. their own peculiar way. But
this ship was not full of lady passengers
and well-dressed officers. Men, white

prau, while the lawful owners bobbed
In the water overside. Half an hour
later the prau's cargo of sago and tri
ps ng, as well as a doubtful-minded
compass, was In the Hallotls. The two
huge triangular mat sails, with their
70-foot yards and booms, had followed
the cargo and were being fitted to the
stripped masts of the steamer.
They rose, they sweued. thev filled.
and the empty steamer visibly laid over
as the wind took them. They gave her
near three knots an hour, and what
better could men ask. But, If she had
been forlorn before, this new purchase

respectable charwoman In the tlirhts of
a ballet-dancer rolling drunk along the
streets,-and you will come to some faint
notion of the appearance of that nine-hundred-ton
well-decked once schoon
er-rigged caro-boat as she staggered
under her new' canvas, shouting and
raving acrons the deep. With steam and
sail that marvelous voyage continued;
and the bright-eyed crew looked over
the rail, desolate, unkempt, unshorn,
shamelessly clothed beyond the de
cencies. - r. .
At the end of the "third week she
sighted the Island of Pygang-Watal,
whose harbor Is the turning point of a
pearling sea patrol. Here the gunboats
stay for a week ere they retrace their
line. There Is no village at Pygana-

palms and a harbor safe to rest In till
the first violence of the southeast mon
soon has blown Itself out. They opened
up tne ow -coral oeacn witn its long
mound of whitewashed coal ready for
supply, the deserted huts-for the sailors
and the ftagless flag-staff.
Next day there waa no Hallotls onlv
a little prau rocking in the warm rain
at the mouth of the harbor, whose crew
watched with hungry, eyes the smoke
of a 'gunboat on the hor lion.
Months afterward there were a fwf

The forthcoming report of the-interstate

Is the first time a reduction In the number
of persons employed by railway corpora

has been grsdual until a total of 173,602
was reached In the year 1090, The reduc
tion was general throughout the united
State with the exception- at the Pacific

rolls of nearly 16 per cent. In Illinois,
Iowa, Wisconsin and Minnesota there
were even greater reductions. In those
states 06,160 person were thrown eat of
employment and there was a decrease of
15.36 per cent In the' pay roll. The enor
mous reduction In these particular locali
ties may be due In a measure to the em
ployment of a large number of extra men
In 1893 during the World' fair. In the
eastern and New England state only IS,
460 men were discharged and the pay rolls
were reduced only 6.80 per cent Another
fact of interest in thla connection la that

It was announced that the Lehigh
Mallev Railroad Is laying plans to se
cure an outlet of Its own at the footJ
of Essex street. Jersey City, ana mat
It proposes to build a ferry from that
point to connect with New York. The
Greenville and Hudson Kaiiroaa torn
nanv has been organised to build a
new line of road with a capital of
$200,000. The directors of the company
are: John Hood, of Camden, uavia s,
Balrd, of Beverly, Thomas W. Hulme
and Fredrick H. Lee. of Mount holly,
and James B. Shaoerkotter. William
Brlnder and Madison E. Meredith, of
Philadelphia. These gentlemen are
closely connected with the Lehigh Val
ley Interests, and the new road will,
It Is said, eventually become part of
the Lehigh Valley. It will connect
with the main line of the Lehigh Vol
ley near Brown place, Jersey City,
with the present Lehigh Valley freight
depot in Jersey City, which is to be
come the main depot of the company,
At present the Lehigh Valley trains
run Into the Pennsylvania Railroad
depot In Jersey City.
Owing to various reasons, the Read
Ing plan of reorganization will not be
announced this week. A movement Is
