by the officers of the little ships in
severalty. The Maiuaitita was, of
course, the center of attraction, being
the biggest and handsomest of the
quartette. She is a modem and beau
tiful vessel of steel, frame, decks and
spars, equipped with every new and
useful thing that can be incorporated
in a strictly up-to-date government
Captain Albert Barron brought
her out, and she was officered for the
voyage by the following staff First
Officer, E. W. Bartow; Second Offi
cer E. G. Freeman; Chief Engineer
V. L. Brown; First Assistant Engi
neer Thomas McGrath; and Second
Assistant Engineer L- S- Brooks.
She carries a crew of sailors and fire
men numbering 23 besides these gen
(lenient. The Maruanita is elegantly and
comfortably quartered throughout,
with every possible convenience,
being principally done in mahogany,
maple, brass and plate-glass; she has
patent baths and toilets; steam heat
ing raditors; electric lights and fans
in all quarters; powerful patent
winches, sounding machines, and
cranes for handling all the utilities of
the service and the finest of launches
and boats; her life launch being a 35
horse power automobile which eas
ily makes 12 knots an hour in any
kind of a sea a boat my venture in.
She has steam steering gear, with
telegraph engine indicators, Hyde
windlasses, and all modern appliances j
for systcmizing and simplifying her
work in all directions.
Her engines are of the latest pat
tern; being triple twin-screw type,
with piston valves employed through
out; one condenser for both en
gines; duplicate feed pumps, one cir
culator and one air pump; fresh and
salt water sanitary pumps, separate:

along with steering engines. She has
two turbine driven dynamo, one of
10 horsepower and the other of 120
horse-power, for lighting the ship;
and an evaporating and distilling
plant that produces 2000 gallons of
imon-?pure drinking water every' 24
hours. She has a one-pipe heating
systes with radiators all over
the vessel, the first of its kind
to be installed on these vessels, and
fine bank of Scotch boilers; and
her proud chief reports that every
detail of her mechanism worked like
charm for every mile of her vast
journey around the "Horn."
She is a "pippin", and will be an
ornament, as well as a splendid
utility, on this big station. On the
way out she demonstrated her caps
city for towing by hauling the No-
88 for a distance of 1475 miles at
single stretch, to save the fuel of th
plucky little snip she was convoying.
The bunker capacity of the Manza
nita is 125 tons for a 12-day run.
In describing one of the other
three, the fleet of lightships are
practically covered. They are "all
of a piece," class, build and equip
ment; stout and sturdy and sea
worthy to the last degree; clean and
irderly and possessing every device
They do n6t differ radically from the
hips now in service here, save in
such later utilities s have been de
vised and applied in the course of
their newer construction. They are
officered as follows:
No. 88 Captain, S. M. Tonning
hrst officer, Charles Ward; second
officer, Charles A. Modaar; chief en
gineer, Walter Cassell; first assistant
engineer, ueorge tsnnn; second as
sistant engineer, Ernest Lof. Her
crew numbers 11 besides these off)
cers. She makes eight knots an hour
at sea, and carries 100 tons of coal.
No. 92 Captain, George H. Toon;
first officer, Fred R. Bergman; sec
ond officer, Jacob Nelson; chief engl
neer, Charles Harrison; first assist.
ant, Fred Valden; second assistant,
George Frey; crew, coal tonnage, and
speed the same as the other lightship.
No. 93-Captain, W. H. Phillips;
first officer, Eric Nelson; second offi
cer, Charles kludge; chief engineer,
Charles Steele; first assistant, W. C
Farnham; and second, assistant, Ed'
ward Meyers. In all respects she is
the mate of her sisters, differing from
mem only in oeing painted a warm
buff instead of a flaming red.
These gentlemen are all looking for
an early departure for the East, all of
them being men of families, and
thouRh they each and all have the
kindliest word possible for the Pa
cific, San Francisco, and Astoria, they
ire a unit in their desire to get back
home. They are, in the main, all
young men well trained to their posts
'and competent in the last degree, as
their success in bringing this frail
fleet over the vast course they did,
without loss of maty bolt or spar.
The Morning Astorian wishes them
luck and safety on the return journey.
