Norfolk Island, Australia, Dec. 31.-Eleven modern Ko'uinson Crusoes were landed here b the British steamer Knight of the Garter, after an enforced residence of six months on. Easter Island, a Chilean possession, practically uninhabited, tiOOO miles out in the vastness ot the Pacific oee; n. The eleven men formed the crew of the schooner El Dorado, of San Francisco, which lei't the Columbia river on April 1, bound lor Antoi'agabta, Guile, and \vab abandoned on June 13, alter her riggings had been torn to shreds by the wind and her sides Liat- tered in by the waves of a tempest which broke loose along the early hours of the morning of the 13th. How the little crew, all in one boat, managed to ride the fury of the storm that increased in \ iolence throughout the day is a wonder to the skipper, Captain Benton. "We just stuck to our oars," he said, "and put our trust in God. All tbrougli the night v. e lay to, expecting every moment to be carried under, when along morning time the tempest began to subside, and right to port, about eleven miles away, the otulines of an island loomed up in patches through the L.-... t. Most of the men were dead tired, holding on to their oars all night, but I cheered theni along, and v,-e ma.le straight for land, reaching a small Inlet in about five hours. "We started in to explore our surroundings. Yes, sir; it sounds mighty like Robinon Crusoe, but that's just what we were up against. Well, to ; make a long story short, we dug what tools we had out of the boat, built some sort of a log cabin, and for the next few days lived on the little we had put in the boat before leaving the El Dorado and from what fruits and herbs we could pick about us. "Aftpr we'd, been on The island for a month or so, tlie ship's cook came in one afternoon with a story about seeing a littio village a few miles to the north of r.s. At this all the men looked kind o' scared, instead of the other way rouirl. Vou see, we thought they might be cannibals. "One ia';niiag we drew lots to Bee who'd go with me. It fell to three of the sailors, so leaving the two mates, the ship' 4 ? cook and four seamen behind, we set out, after provisioning the boat with fruit and other things that we'd been able to raise. "The natives had said something about Papeete, one of the Society Islands, where we'd find white folks. It took us c tartly twenty-eight days before we readied the island. That was on*" Nov. o, and as the natives had said we found immediate relief. "Here, alter a week or so, the Knight o! tiin ("Jarter took us on board. I told thf r-Ui riper about my companions on ICaster Island, and we went back and pn'lteJ them up. "Yes, sir: they were mighty glad when we hove in sight on a real steamer. They'd already given us up for lost. In lact, after all I've gone through I'm not qi-ite settled in mind whether I'm really alive myself." The rcv.c'ierl men have not as yet made any plans, bpt it is expected that they will return to San Francisco on the first available vessel. Faint* as Wilbur Lawaon Take* Vacant Seat at Table.
