A Terrible Tale of the Sea.
AMONG the old stories retold at the
opening of the new year, there is
no one that created bo widespread a sen
sation in its day, and the memory of
which lingers more' profoundly still,
than that of Capt. Holmes, of the ship
William Brown. Tho ship with a full
cargo and a number of steerage passen
gers left Liverpool for New York,and on
her voyage struck an Iceberg and began
to sink. Two boats left ship one with
a number of sailors, the other, the long
boat, with the passengers and balance
of the crew. This boat was in charge
of Capt. Holmes. The passengers were
Scotch and among the number were
women and children.
The boat had been at sea several days,
when Holmes was noticed by the pas
sengers to have private conversations
with the sailors. At first the latter ob
jected to the propositions made to them,
but finally yielded au unwilling assent.
The boat contained a cask of water and
provisions for a few days only. It was
soon made plain what wag the subject of
Holmes's conversations with the crew,
and this the pasSengers learned full
well. He thought that the boat was
over crowded, that it lay too deepen the
sea for safety, that there were six or
seven too many people on board, And
so in cold blood, he determined to get
rid of the extra six or seven. Incredible
as the story at this time may seem, he
made up his mind, and got the sailors to
agree with him, to throw overboard six
or seven of the heaviest of the passen
gers, so as to lighten the long-boat by
jutt the amount these six or seven weigh
edmaking so many lives just the
mrtlter of so many pounds.
There were thirty-two people in the
longboat, counting Holmes. Holmes
made up his mind that there shouldn't
be over twenty five or six (counting
Holmes of course). Holmes had at
first determined to make a short speech
to the passengers, telling 'em why he
was forced to throw 'em . overboard.
but he thought afterwards that that sort
of a speech would make trouble, as it
probably would, so be determined to
throw 'em overboard first and explain
He waited till night came, and then
he waited till eleven o'clock at night.
It was pitch dark then, except when
there was a flash of llghtnin', and every
now and then it rained a little. Alto
gether it was gloomy night.
Suddenly HolnieB and two other sail
ors came up close to where a man, one
of the passengers, called Owen Ilellly,
was sitting, Holmes made a sign, and
then the three of 'em caught bold of
poor Owen Ilellly. He looked wildly ;
it was lightening pretty fast Just then,
and Rellly could see, by the flashes, the
cruel faces and stern looks of the three
men who had hold of him. He clutch
ed tight hold of the side of the boat,
and said to the three men : " What are
you going to do with me?" The two
Ballqrs didn't know what to say to this
natural question; they didn't know how
to put the deed into words. But Holmes
spoke right up, and answered : " We
are going to throw you overboard and
lighten this boat. It is better one should
drown than thirty-two." Rellly fought
for a while; but he was soon overpower
ed, his hands and feat were held fast,
and they began to swing his body to and
fro, so as to be able to hurl it into the sea
so far that he could not reach the boat
again in hia dying struggles. Then
poor Rellly gave up lighting and called
out to the women, who looked on, or
tried to see what they could, trembling,
but afraid and unwilling to interfere.
" Ask 'em to spare my life, for God's
sake," said poor Rellly to a girl who
had been sitting next him ; but the girl
didn't or couldn't speak, and in less
time than it takes to write this, poor
Rellly was hurled alive into the sea.
His death shriek was something awful,
but his cries ami struggles didn't last
long. There was silence in a minute,
and when the next flash of llghtnin' lit
up the sea, there was nothln' to be seen
of poor Owen Rellly. There were
only thirty-one pusseDgers now, and
the long-boat was about one hundred
and eighty pounds lighter, but Holmes's
and the two sailors' consciences were
heavier by a good deal more than one
hundred and eighty pounds.
The two sailors wbo had been help
ing Holmes seemed themselves to feel
bad, but Holmes didn't give them time
to think. Telling them to come with
him, he stepped up to where another
passenger was sitting, a man named
Frank Atkins, and seizing him, the
three men threw him overboard, in
spite of the tears, prayers and struggles
of a pretty young girl a few feet off from
him, on another seat. Frank Atkins
struggled, but be didn't say anything
about his own life, and only cried out to
the young girl, " God bless you Mary."
Then he went down into the sea, with a
big splash, like a stone. He couldn't
" Who's that young woman making
all this noise V" asked Holmes with an
" I am the sister of the man you have
Just thrown overboard," answered the
young girl whom the dying Frank At
kins had just blessed as " Mary."
" Oh, I thought you was his sweet
heart," sneered Holmes.whose bad blood
was now up.
"I loved him better than a sweetheart."
answered the young girl, looking up
into Holmes's face with a sad, brave
look. Then she continued: "You
might just as well finish your work.
I have no desire now to live, since you
have murdered him."
," You call it murder, do you ?" said
Holmes. " Well, we will take you at
your word, and send you overboard to
join your brother. You weigh almost
as much as he did, anyway. "So, mak
lug a sign to bis men, Holmes took
hold of the young girl, wbo offered no
manner of resistance, and the three
threw her overboard into the sea.
The two sailors did not seem to like
killing of women, but Holmes had
them completely in bis power, and they
did as they were told. , " Mary" went
overboard without a groau, was seen
floating on the water a minute later, by
the light afforded by a flash of light
ning, and all was over with Mary. Per
haps her poor brother's prayer had been
heard and answered, and God had Hew
ed Mary sooner than either of them
had expected.
Then somebody on the boat said that
Mary and Frank, just drowned, had an
other sister on the boat called Ellen.
Then Holmes and the two sailors, full
of the devil by this time, caught hold of
this poor little Ellen, who was hiding
away, and threw her out Into the sea, to
Join the rest of her family. A whole
family was thus thrown overboard in
less than ten minutes,
Then Holmes caught hold of a fifth
passenger called Black, but one of the
sailors said that Black was a friend of
his, and, besides, Black had a wife on
board. Bo Holmes, who . had a bit of
human nature about him stlll,sald "he'd
be hanged if he'd part man and wife
yet a while," and spared Black. Then
Black and his wife embraced each other,
and the wife spent the rest of that awful
night on her knees saying her prayers,
and thanking the good God.
The long-boat now had only twenty
eight passengers (couatlng Holmes), and
did not set so low tn the sea as before,
but Holmes thought there were several
people in it yet too many. So be got
hold of a passenger named Charles Con
lin, who crouching down among the
women. "Come," said Holmes to the
crouching man " It Is your turn." " Mr.
Holmes, dear," whined Conlin pitifully,
" Mr. Holmes, dear, you wouldn't put
me out, would youV" "Oh, Conlin,
dear, whined Holme?, imitating him,
" oh Conlin dear, I will put you out,
won't IV and' giving the sign, Con
lin was thrown into the sea. The poor
wretch begged and pleaded for life, but
it was of no avail. He was hurled In
to the ocean like the rest.
Holmes and the sailors rested awhile
from their work of destruction, and
Holmes threw himself into the stern of
the boat, and fell asleep ; slept with the
load of three men and two women sent
to their account by him in less than an
hour, the coolest crlmlnel ever heard
When he awoke the next morning he
found that there were still several pas
sengers left, two of whom had been
hiding during the night. When these
two were discovered they commenced to
bail out the boat, hoping that their ser
vices might save them. But Holmes
waited till they had balled out all of the
water, and then threw them overboard,
one after the other.
Seven human beings had now been
thrown overboard. There , .were only
twenty-five left on board. The' long
boat was lightened by over one thousand
pounds, and Holmes was satisfied.
A few hours after all these horrors
had been committed, the long-boat met
a passing vessel. The crew was taken
on board, and it was proved by the
facts in the case that not only were all
those awful horrors of that night sheer
murders, but that all these murders
were unnecessary. If he had only wait
ed twelve hours,seven people would have
been alive who were now dead, and the
man Holmes would have bad seven
crimes less to answer for at the bar of
He answered for them an the bar of
man. He was tried for his crime, and
was sentenced for five years to the
State's prison.
