In Which the Tide Takes a Hand.
THE sliip stole through the dark
ness "with extremest caution,
feeling her way past bay and
promontory. Around her was
none of that phosphorescent glow
which lies above the open ocean, even
on the darkest night, for the mountains
ran down to the channel on either side.
In places they overhung, and where
they lay upturned against the dim sl:y
it could be seen that they were man
tled with heavy timber. All day long
the Nebraska had made her way
through an endless succession of straits
and sounds, now squeezing through an
inlet so narrow that the somber spriK-e
trees seemed to be within a short
stone's throw, atrain plowing across
some open reach where the pulse of t'.ie
north Pacific could be felt. Out through
the openings to seaward stretched the
restless ocean, on across uncounted
leagues, to Saghalkn and the rim of
Ilussia's prison yard.
Always near at hand was the deep
green of the Canadian forests, denser,
darker than a tropic jungle, for this
was the land of "plenty waters." The
hillsides were carpeted knee deep with
moss, wet to saturation. Out of every
gulch came a brawling stream whip
ped to mill; white frenzy; snow hiy
heavy upon the higher levels, while
now and then from farther inland
srer crushed between the granite
peaks. There were villages, too. and
lishing stations, and mines and quar
ries. These burst suddenly upon the
view, then slipieQ past with dreamlike
swiftness. Other ships swung into
sight, rushed by and were swallowed
up in the labyrinthine maze astern.
Those passengers of the Nebraska
who had never before traversed the "in
side passage" were loud in the praises
of its picturesqucness. while those to
whom the route was familiar seemed
to find an ever fresh fascination in its
Among the latter was Murray O'NciL
The whole north coast from Flattery
to St. Elias was as well mapped in his
mind as the tfiee of an old friend, yet
he was forever discovering new vistas,
surprising panoramas, amazing varia
tions of color and topography. The
mysterious rifts and passageways that
opened and closed as if to lure the ship
astray, the trackless confusion of islets,
the siren soijg of the waterfalls, the
silent hills "and glaciers and scow
soaked forests all appealed to him
strongly, for he was at heart a dreamer.
Vet he did not forget that scenery
such as this, lovely as it is l?y cay,
may be dangerous at" eight, fcr he
knew the weakness cf stee! hulls. On
some Eides his experience and business
trainit Lad made him sternly practi
cal aid prosaic. Ships aroused no
mantM-l of enthusiasm in him except
as me: i s to an end. Railroads had no
glamoi of romance in his eyes, for,
having vullt a number of them, he had
outlivi jiil poetic notions regarding
the "i mi horse." and once the rails

O'Neil was wont to live in Johnny's

be a nutter of some ceremony.
The ship's master soon appeared

with gray hair.

for his passenger, opened the bottle
for liin-self. They raised their glasses
"Now that you're past the worst of
it," remarked O'Neil, "I suppose you'll
turn in. You're getting old for a hard
run like this. Johnny."
Captain l'.rcunau snorted. "Old"'
I'm a b tter man than you. yet. I'm a
teetotaler, that's why. I discovered
long ago that salt water and whisky

O'Neil stn tched himself out i:i Pi:e
of Brennan's easy chairs. "Really,"
ho said. "I don't understand why a
ship carries a captain. Now, of what;
earthly use to the line are you. for in

iio doubt, L:is its value with the wo

Indeed tl. y could noTTand neither

"Oh, well, of course I have no re
spoet for you as a man, having seen
you without your uniform."
The captain grinned in thorough en
joymont of this raillery. "I'll say noth
ing at all of my seamanship," he said,
relapsing auto the faintest of brogues,
"but there's i: denying that the mas

thing, and that takes tact and patience.
Why. some people make themselves at
homo m the bridge, in the chart rooin,
and oven in r.iy living quarters, to say
nothing of consuming my expensive
wines, liquors and cigars."
"I'm a brutal scnaring mau, and
you'll have to make allowances for my
well known Irusqueness. Maybe I'd id
mean you. Bat I'll say that next to
you Curtis Gordon is the worst grafter
I ever saw."
"You don't like Gordon, do you';"
O'Neil queried with a change of tone.
"I do not! lie went up with me

But I don't like men who use women's

the sclioolma'ams and servant girls
and society matrons in the enst. What
has he got to s'aow them for it:"
"A railroad project, a copper mine,

"Humph! Mrs. Gerard is different.

when she runs short of English. Her
daughter is like her."
"I haven't seen Miss Gerard."
"If you'd stir about the ship instead
of wearing out my morris chair you'd
have that pleasure. She was on deck
all morning." Captain Brennan fell
silent and poked with a stubby fore
finger at the ice in his glass.
"Well, out with it," said O'Neil after
"I'd like to know the inside story of
Curtis Gordon and this girl's mother.'
"Why bother your head about some
thing that doesn't concern you?" The
speaker rose and began to pace the
cabin floor, then in an altered tone in

"Suppose it should be rough?" .
"Then we'll go on and drop you there
coming back. I don't want to be caught
cn that shore with a southerly wind,
and that's the way it usually blows."
"I can't wait," O'Neil declared. "A
week's delay might ruin me. Bather
than go on I'd swim ashore myself,
without the horses."
Even as Brennan spoke the Nebraska
seemed to halt, to jerk backward un
der his feet. O'Neil, who was standing,
flung out an arm to steady himself; the
empty ginger ale bottle fell from the
sideboard with a thump. Loose ar
ticles hanging against the side walls
swung to and fro; the heavy draperies
over Captain Johnny's bed swayed.
Brennan leaped from his chair; his
ruddy face was mottled, his eyes were
wide and horror stricken.
"Damnation ! he gasped. The cabin
door crashed oik-ii ahead of him, and
he was on the bridge, with O'Neil at
his heels. They saw the first oflk-er
clinging limply to the rail; from the
pilot house window came an excited
burst of Norwegian, then out of the
door rushed a quartermaster.
The steady, muffled beating of the
machinery ceased, the ship seemed sud
denly to lose her life, but it was plain
that she was not aground, for she kept
moving through the gloom. From down
forward came excited voices as the
crew poured up out of the forecastle.
Brennan leaped to the telegraph and
signaled the engine room. He was
calm now, and his voice was sharp
"Go below, Mr. James, and find the
extent of the damage," he directed, and
a moment later the hull began to throb
once more to the thrust of the pro
filer. Inside the wheelhouse Swan
had recovered from his panic and re
peated the master's - orders mechanic
ally. "Tell me where and how I can help,"
Murray offered. His first thought had
been of the possible effect of this ca
tastrophe upon his plans, for time was
pressing As for danger, he had looked
upon it so often and In so many forms
that it had little power to stir him.
but a shipwreck, which would halt
his northward rush, was another mat
ter. Brennan stepped into the chart room,
but returned in a moment to say:
"There's no place to beach her this
side of Halibut bay."
"How far is that?"
"Five or six miles."
"You'll hate to beach her?"
"I'm afraid so. She feels flueer."
Up from the cabin deck came a hand
ful of men passengers to inquire what
had happened; behind them a woman
began calling shrilly for her husband.

where he found an incipient panic.
Stewards were pounding on stateroom
doors, half clad men were rushiug
about aimlessly, pallid faces peered
fyrth from windows, and there was the
sound of running feet, of slamming
doors, of shrill, hysterical voices.
O'Neil saw a waiter thumping lus
tily upon a door and heard him shout
"Everybody out! The ship Is sink
ing!" As he turned away Murray seiz

ing his face close to the other's, said

"God help us, we're going"
O'Neil shook the fellow until his
teeth rattled; his own countenance, or
dinarily so quiet, was blazing.
"There's no danger. Act like a man
and don't start a stampede."
The steward pulled himself together
and answered in a calmer tone:
"Very well. sir. I I'm sorry, sir."
Murray O'Neil was known to most
of the imsscngors, for his name had
gone up and down the coast, and there
were few places from San Francisco to
Nome where his word did not carry
weight. As he went among his fellow
travelers now, smiling, self contained,
unruffled, his presence had its effect.
Women ceased their shrilling, men
stopped their eenseless questions and
listened to his directions with. some
comprehension. In a short time the
passengers were marshaled upon the
upper deck where the lifeboats hung
between the davits. Each little craft
was in charge of its allotted crew, the
electric lights continued to burn bright
ly, and the panic gradually wore itself
out. Meanwhile the ship was running
a desperate race with the sea, striving
with every ounce of steam in her boil
ers to find a safe berth for her muti
lated body before the inrush of waters
drowned her fires. That the race was
close even the dullest understood, for
the Nebraska' was settling forward and
plowed into the night head down, like
a thing maddened with pain. She was
becoming unmanageable, too, and
O'Neil thought with pity of that little
Ironhearted skipper on the bridge who
was fighting her so furiously.
There was little confusion, little talk
ing, upon the upper deck now. Only a
child whimpered or a woman sobbed
hysterically. But down forward among
the steerage passengers the case was

different. These were mainly Mon
tenegrins, Polacks or Slavs bound for
the construction camps to the west
ward, and they surged from side to
side like cattle, requiring Tomlinson's
best efforts to keep them from rushing
In these circumstances the 'wait be
came almost unbearable The race
seemed hours long, the miles stretched
into leagues, and with every moment
of suspense the ship sank lower. The
end came unexpectedly. There was a
sudden startled outcry as the Nebraska
struck for a second time that night.
She rose slightly, rolled and burned,
grated briefly, then came to rest.
Captain Brennan shouted from the
"Fill your lifeboats, Mr. James, and
lower away carefully."
A cheer rose from the huddled pas
sengers. The boiler room was still dry, it
seemed, for the incandescent lights
burned without a flicker, even after
the grimy oilers and stokers had come
pouring up on d?k.
