BUT ONE SHIP LEFT 1

Bedford’s Sea Era
Drawing to Close.
New Bedford, Muss.—A nather lierolc
chapter III the history of New Eng
land, filled with the exploits of strong
men in combat with tlie giants of the
sea. Is drawing to a close.
This old-time port, th a t has been
home to hundreds of suil of whalers,
now can boast only one whaling ship.
The schooner John It. M anta may be
tlie "last of the whalers," for most of
the old-time whalemen are dead, and
the M anta's only hope of recroiting a
crew is to sail across the A tlantic
ocean to tlie Azores.
A few still live who remember the
heyday of whaling, when th is port
teemed with the activity of the w hal
ing barks, when men snlled aw ay on
seemingly Interm inable voyages, when
wives and families of seamen and
captains haunted the "widows' walks"
on the old-time h o u ses hoping to
catch a glimpse of a returning ship.
Ilut ttiose who remember are grow
ing old and some are nearing the
Recalls W haling Thrills.
Among those who remember keenly
those earlier days is Capt. Ulysses E.
Mayhew of West Tisbury, on tlie is
land of M artha's Vineyard. H is youth
ful appearance and spirit belie his
fourscore years. In his life he has
had adventures and experiences that
would cram more th an one movie
As a boy In his 'teens he sailed his
first whaling voyage during the Civil
war. On th at trip he learned about
stal kiug the w hale in small boats,
harpooning, tlie downward ru sh of
tlie wounded w hale nnd tlie peril to
tlie small boat as the rope ran off
from the shrieking windlass. And he
learned how the “kill” nt last was
effected, with lance or bomb-gun.
Last Survivor of Lafayette Crew.
Captain Mayhew believes he Is the
last survivor of tlie crew of the bark
L afayette, burned and sunk with two
other Yankee ships off Fernando de
Noronhn, Brazilian convict island, by
the Confederate w arship Alabama,
A fter a series of adventures he was
sent back by the United S tates con
sul from Brazil nnd promptly shipped
on another whaler. On this next voy
age he saw tlie U. S. S. Kearsnrge

had sunk tlie Alabama.
It Is a far cry, he says, from those
old days to the modern times th at
have seen the typical old whaling
harks Greyhound and W nndcrer pass
on. Of those proud times, only the
schooner John It. M anta renmins. And
