YOL.XX. NO. 9. ASTORIA, OHEGON, SATURDAY, JANUARY 5, 1884. PRICE, FIVE CENTS. NO AMERICAN SAILORS. Swedes ami German the IJc-t Men Who Now are Shipped Before tlic 3Iat. A stranger in walking through the groups of men that stand about, ap parently idle, in Irout of the saloons, the ship chandler stores and the warehouses along South street, might not notice that they differed from laboring men seen elsewhere, except IRjssibly that they are as a rule, of a more comfortable appearance. But if one stops to listen he will hear them talking, always with a foreign accent, of ships, ship news, and places in for eign lands. They are sailors or sea faring men, or men who get their liv ing by dealing with seafaring men. In a part of the street where the groups are thickest was a little red and white sign yesterday, which read: "Give the old man a chance. Uncle .Toe Bayles. Shipping office." A narrow stairway led to a third story front room with low ceiling and a rail ing that divided the room across the middle. Colored prints gave variety to the walls. Men of various colors and conditions and in all comfortable attitudes served the same purpose for . the rest of the room. Behind a desk witliin the railing was Uncle Joe and a partner. When asked whether any difficulty was found in obtaining sailors, they said : "None whatever. We are overrun with cer tain kinds of. men, and can get a good crew without any delay." "How many of the crews placed by you are American sailors, or what pro portion of each crew is composed of Yankee sailors?' The two men looked at each other and then at the questioner for a min ute, and then one said : "He wants to know if any Yankees are shipped out of this port." 'Oh!" said the other. "Ye-es. Immesee. Was it two or three we shipped this year ?" "What nationalitv do vou ship then y" "Swedes and Germans mostly. Now and then one or two from all other nations under the sun except our own. Captains who come in here tell us they want Swedes or Germans. Some take negroes, especially for the West India trade during the sickly season. They never call for Irish men." r "Can you give any reason for this":' "Yes. Swedes as a class are the best sailors shipped. They have to serve some sort of an apprenticeship in their own vessels when they first go to sea. Then they will staud more abuse than any other nationality. They are docile. They are as healthy men as can be found anywhere. Ne groes are good in summer, because they can lie down on deck when the tar is running out of the seams and dripping from the rigging, and sleep soundly. In winter the cold kills them. Irishmen are dreaded, because when disciplined with a marline-spike they are pretty sure to kick up some sort of a mutiny. The Dagos and the West India negroes are treacherous. The English are good sailors, but we do not have many of them. They stick by their line steamships." "What has become of the Yankee sailor that used to man the clipper ships we read of?" "He doesn't grow any more. Why should he? What is there to induce a boy to go to sea? Is it the SIS a month that he can earn, but not al ways get, when ho has sailed long enough to learn his trade? Is it the salt horse and hard tack that he lives on? Is it the persuasive fist of the mate when that gentleman is afflicted with a sour temper? Can you think of one reason why a young man should go to sea?" "Can't he get promoted if he is en ergetic and capable?" "Yes. The law will allow American ships to take only American citizens as officers. If the lad is energetic and capable, as you say, he can, after five or six years get promoted to a second mate's berth. That means $o a month more than the men before the mast Here, look at this list" The shipping list of the iron schooner Josephine -was spread be fore the questioner. Tho mate had sicmed for 40 a month, the second mate at $2o, one seaman at 20, four at S18, the cook at S5. and an ordi nary seaman at $14. "That mate is a first-class man; he has been to sea for years. The board and lodging he gets on board are about equal to what he'd got for $20 a month on shore. So he ranks the mechanics who get $2.23 a day, with this difference: The male works 12 hours a day, seven days in the week, and the mechanic doesn't Is that enticing to the energetic and capa ble young man you told about?' "But this is a coaster." "Yes. The men before the mast on the 'Frisco clippers get $16 instead of $18 a month. That recalls another thing. As soon as the vessel touches the dock the men are called down be low and are paid of " One may bo kept for ship-keeper, but his pay does not run on; he only gets his board. Between the advance pay system, which fattens the boarding-houses, and the time he is idle, the sailor does not handle as much money as the tailor's apprentice. The Yankee does not go to sea because he can do bet ter on shore." "If you are not making any sailors where do the mates and captains come from?' "Many of them are naturalized for eigners. The Americans come from a certain class of coasters and fisher men, who ship their crews among tho neighbors of the owners in the small ports where they belong. Some o the captains do not know tar from puttywhen they first go to sea. The captain must have the money to buy an' interest in the vessel before he can get command of her, sailor or not If he has enough money and wants to sail, he can buy into a ship. His first mate is then at onco com mander and schoolmaster to the cap tain until the captain learns how." A black and white sign in front of a South street hotel reads: "Want ed, men for the U. S. Navy. Seamen, $21.50; ordinary seamen, $17.50; fire men. S3L50." Mr. Edwin C. Prevost had charge of the naval shipping '"Wo wmif nhtaKrcimpn mid ordnmrv seamen,"' he said. "There are plenty ! of applicants at those wages, but they are not men we can accept They are not seamen as the term is under stood in the naw. An ordinarv sea man who would be accepted in the navy would be an able seaman m the merchant service. The ordinary sea man in the navy must have had at lcast three year's sea experience; tho able seaman six to eight years. Ex actly six out of seven applicants are rejected by the medical examiners. The chief causes are poor eyes and poor teeth." "How many of them aro Ameri cans?" "I guebs I haven't had one. It doesn't pay them to go to sea: the are loo independent to stand the dis cipline." "Is the food as jjood in the mer chant service as in the navy." "Better. That is, the quality is no better, but the variety is greater." "What chance has a boy to enter the navy?'" "All he wants. The training ships are open to him. After New Year's able seamen will get $21 in the nay'." The chief officer of the United States steamer Yantic was discussing with some reporters the conduct of the sailors at the time the Porteus sank in the ice. "Do you havo any trouble in getting good seamen in the navy?" was asked of the officer. He answered: "We do. There is no trouble in getting men who can haul on a rope, but able seamen whom we can promote to petty officers are not to be had." He would oxpress no opinion on the cause of this condition of affairs. Another naval officer said: "The apprentice are doing welt They will have the first chance in promotions to the warrant offices, but that is not chance enough to fill the navy with able seamen. Naval officcis will not often admit it, but if the cadets at the naval academy were all chosen from among the apprentices who could pas- a rigid examination after three year's service, there would lo something to induce boys of- energy and ability to so to sea."' "Wouldn't the failure of the many who didn't get promoted drive them from the navy?' "No. They would get accustomed to the manner of life, and the sailor's instinct, with the new pay rates, would keep them."'- N. Y.Snn. Northern Pacific Note-.. New York, Jan. 2. Frederick Bil lings called upon Villard yesterday and had a long frafik -talk. Villard was depressed in spirits. He told Billings that he was wrecked finan cially. The latter congratulated him on the fact that this would deprive his enemies of their strongest weapon against him. Villard advised Billings not to take the presidency mid there ns some doubt wncincr ne aviu. au depends upon the manner in which the place is offered to Billings. Billings is said to have parted with none of his holdings of Northern Pa cific, and retains full faith in the en terprise. On account of his health some of his friends think lie would be unable to retain the presidency if he accepted. He is credited with saying: "It is lime the Northern Pa cific should be separated in the pub lic mind from the Oregon and Trans continental, and from the general rep utation of Villard slocks. I believe it an ejusy mailer for the Northern Pacific to earn- all its burden." Vil lard has, up to this time, made no as signment of property to the company. Holmes, his legal . adviser, said he owed the company nothing. Wall street men at the Windsor ho tel, and other up town resorts, yes terday expressed opinions that Trans continental stock was worth from fifty next to nothing. Attention was called to what was characterized as important omissions in the statement, and a lack of definite and detailed in formation. Among ihe liabilities that do not appear in the report, is its guarantee of interest upon the $7, 400,000 of bonds of the uncompleted Oregon and California railroad, and of the 2 per cent dividend yearly its $12,OOT),000 capital stock, for three years from January 21. Fabri is out in a card, denying the interview which appears in the World as having taken place witn mm, in which he is made to say that his com mittee contemplated proceeding a gainst Villard to recover moneys aris ing from stock sales. Fabri says: "I avail myself of this opportunity to say that while very grave mistakes have been made by Villard, I have yet to discover anything that would reflect unfavorably on the integrity of his actions or the honesty of his motives in the management of prop erties in his charge." Some queer things happen during tornadoes. A gentleman traveling in Louisana was surprised by a .tornado, and immediately afterward was nelted liv catfish. One of the fish knocked him down, and his horse ran away. Several thousand of the fish felt They had been scooped up by the wind from a lake near by. The Secret.
