that Knew ner once win Know ner noj

not exactly "in our midst" but on our
outskirts so to speak, that when her
tapering masts no longer cast their sunset
hadows along the shining shore yester
day, many were the anxious inquiries as
to whither she had gone. Since her
pring and stern lines were fastened to
Kinney's dock the varied products of
land and sea have sailed across the
harbor bar to feed the far off inhabitants
of northern isles. The little birds have
built nests in her stern post and raised
their callow brood, whose untried pin
ions at length grew strong enough to
wing their aerial flight to other and
drier climes. The mute little fish have
rubbed their noses against her coppered
sides and keel. The lordly salmon bare
come in triumph and gone hence in cans,
but the good ship hath abode. When,
loaded to Plimsoll's mark, the wheat and
salmon fleet bent their sails to the fresh
ening breeze it is with joy not unmixed
with satisfaction that we chronioled the
commercial fact; but for a vessel to abide
with us so long and then as the salmon
in their far off haunts in the shoreless
depths of the ocean had just stai ted for
the annual sacrifice, for an American
vessel to thus sail away in scornful
emptiness for the placid waters of an in

SAILORS WHO CA5X0T SWIM.
Expert Opinions As to the 'ecd or tho Ac-
Tho splnsh of a falling body from a
ship in the stream yesterday afternoon
excited more attention on board than on
shore. The man who had missed his
footing and dropped from the chains was
quickly got on board, and many were the
comments from the forecpstle concerning
the ndvisabilitv or necessity of sailors be-
ing uble to swim Qne old chap who had
ail unuully large chunk of navy in his
cfaoek Jn un3wer to an inquirTf Can
sajloR, sw-m M a general thing? mid.
'aw. tliev p.in't. Not three sailors
Qnl of 4eu knoW3 bow to swim. A
iQ aUe tQ catch bo,d of a ropd,8
end with his eyebrow if need be for to
stay aboard hn ves-l. His business ain't
in the water, and if he get3 overboard in
the middle of tho broad ocepn,.what good
is his swimmin' a goin' to do him?" He
might just as veil go down at once and
be done with it."
"Aat if Lo could keep himself up awhile
he inigut be saved."
"Well, the'd moat likely to chuck him
something to float, if he was any use."
A ciptaui who had formerly com
manded tae ship C. II. Marshall said: 'l
hardly think the old sailor's estimate of
the proportion of the men of his calling
who cannot swim is quite correct. Bat 1
am convinced that more than half of
them cannot. Often they will pretend to
be able to swim, when in reality they
cannot, not at least to amount to any
thing. I have lost a good many men at
sea, and never saw but one saved yet by
his swimming in rough weather, tt was
in '59 or '60. I was bound out eastward
from New ork in th" Isuac J5 ell. The
wind b-iei'tl irtind coutrcjy, the sea
was heay, we were under low canvas, and
the ship was plunging a great deal. The
mate sent a man out on tho bowsprit end
to scenre the tack lashing of the iorotop
mast st;:sail, and while he was thero the
ship made a plunge, aud the man was
washed overboard. Wo could not get a
life buoy to him, but ho was a Kanaka,
and he know how to swim, as all those
Kanaka do, like a fish. 1 rounded the
ship to, lowered a boat and picked him
up. He had been half an hour in the
water before he was resoued, but 1
brought him into the cabin, gave him a
drink, and got him warm, and in three
hours he w.is as W6ll as if notning had
ever happened. That was tho only oase
I remember now where I was enabled to
save the life of a man overboard, and
I certainly could not have saved him if
he had not known how to swim.
"Coming back from the Columbia two
or three voyages ago I had a singular ex
perience. 1 had aboard a darkey that 1
nad shipped in Portland. He had a big
straw hat, and, going down through the
tropics one day. just as he was near me
he lost it overboard. I said to him, jok
ingly, 'I wouldn't lose a good hat like
that. Why don't you jump after it?' 1
hadn't tho faincst idea of meaning such
a thing; but no sooner said, than dene:
overboard the darkey went like a flash.
He caught his hat, we hove to, throw
him a bowline, and hoisted, him aboard
grinning. But the sea was very calm,
and we were hardly moving, it was
nothing like the otaer case L spoke of.
Eight or nine years ago, on one voyage 1
lost three men overboard m one gale of
wind, and in the old times, when we used
to carry tho singlo topsails, we lost a man
on noarly every voyage. Those sails
were so very heavy and big that they
were hard to handle, particularly when
the wind ballooned them out. if a man
got up on tho yard to reef and tho sail
hit him a sl.ip, overboard he would go,
stunned and helpless. It doesn't make
an' odds how good a swimmer n man is
if he goes into the water stunned in a
gale of wind. He is pretty certain to be
drowned. Since the double topsail yards
were substitutwlfor that old rig I have
lost no more men in that way, and, in
fact, have not lost a man for several
years until about a year ago, when I had
tho misfortune to lose my mate. The
jibsheet knocked him overboard, and
probably stunned him, We rounded to
nd lowered a boat as quickly as possi
ble. We could see his sou'wester in the
water, and supposed his head was under
it, but it wasn't when the boat get there,
and though we saved the sou'wester, we
never saw tho man again.
"Sailors never seem to think of the
fact that they cannot swim when ord
ered on the most dangeious duty. They
never object to going aloft when they can
get there. Sometimes they oannot go.
On tho last voyace I made from New
York to Liverpool, off the Bank, we were
caught in such a gale thnt the men were
flattened out like spread eagles on the
rigging, and literally could not climb
aloft. Swimming would not have been
much use to a man overboard in that sea.
Still, I believe that not only every sailor,
but every man should bo able to swim, as
the knowledge might enable him to save
his life when otherwise it would inevit
ably be lost.
Another captain, who years ago was
master of a whaler, said:
'I can't swim, never could, and don't
see that it is of any particular use to a
sailor to know how to swim. I have been
ovorboard in the ocean a hundred times
I suppose, dozens of times anyway, and
nover found myself in any danger of
drowning yet through lack of knowing
how to swim. Only a small minority of
whalemen know how to swim, and I don't
see why they should. It is true that in
pursuit of u whale their boat may be
crunched up by a sperm or mashed by
the flipper of a right whale, or np3et; but
oven then there ib no danger. There is
always a bit of board, or an oar or some
thing else that will float to lay hold of
until the other boats can come to the res
cue, and there are always plenty of other
boats near at hand hi chasing a whale.
Besides, there is a lookout kept on the
vessel whilo the boats are out. and if
there's any serious danger she comes
right down to help. "We have everything
in readiness all the time, and you might
almost say that a whaleman wouldn't get
a chance to be drowned, even if ho want
ed to, except it might be in a gale; and
in weather and sea that a boat could
not ba lowered in, what show
would a man have to save him
self by swimming? Swimming
is an accomplishment, not a ne
cessity. The Kanakas are the best swim
mers in the world. They all 8 .vim at the
Sandwich Islands, men, women, babies,
and all the live stock, I dare say. A
good many German sailors can swim, es
pecially those who have served in the
army or navy, where all the men are re
quired to learn to swim. Very few of
them, however, go on board whahri.
Not many American sailors know how to
swim, not so many in proportion, I
should say, as English and Frenoh."
An 01a scnor wun wnom ine ropoixer
got into conversation at the O. B. & N.
dock, shook his head very gravely when
the gist of the last spanker's remarks
was repoated to him and said: "May be
it's all so. Perhaps a voyage whaling is
sifer than cruising on dry land. I don't
say it ain't. Bet I don't want any cf
tu .t sort ot safety m mine. 1 can 1
swim, never considered it would be any
use tome to know how, and don't think
so yet. If a man's going to bo drowned,
win he's going to be drowned, even if be
swims like a dolphin, and that's all there
is about it. But I prefer my service on a
vessel where it's on deck or in the rigging,
where you've got something to hold on
by, and not where most of it is in small
boats. It isn't only the chance of drown
ing, for of course, as the Captain
said, you cm mDst always oitoh
hold of somsthing that will keep
you afloat. I've had to do it myself. Bat
there's other chances. I never think of
going whaling but what I remombsr a
yarn tbaf a shipmate of mine told me
once. He had bseu on a voyaga after
sperm whales in southern seas. One fine
day a whale knocked to pieces the boat
he was in, and her nrew naturally all
wentadiift. My shipmate and two oth
er oaugat en to an oar, and kept tkea
selves up by it easily; for you know it I
on t iauo mucu to support a mans
weight in the water, especially if be has
sense enough to paddle a little'downward,
under water, w.th one hand. The water
was smooth, there were two other boats
only a little ways off coming to their
help, and they didn't feel that thev had
any occasion to be scared of any danger.
In fact, one of them was a-laughing,
when all of a sudden he gave a most un
earthly screech, threw up his hands, wild
like, and darted down backward into the
water. The others knew in a s c nd
what was the matter. A shark had taken
him. In a minuto or two more the sec
ond man, just a-touching shoulders with
my shipmate, threw up hi3 hand with a
screech, and went down. A shark had
got him, too; and the boat was so close
that her crew saw it all, understood it,
and were able, by beating the water with
their oars, to scare away the other sharks
that were literally swarming all about,
until they could drag aboard mv ship
mate. Ob, yes, whaling may be an awful
safe business, but I don't want any of it,
and it isn't a question of swimming,
