More on the Makee, 1897.

JAMES MAKEE AGROUND.

Accident to One of the Inter-Island Boats at Kapaa.

The James Makee met with a streak of misfortune on her last trip to Kauai. She was leaving Kapaa about 2:30 p. m. on Wednesday with 650 bags of sugar on board. The wind was blowing a perfect gale, and the Makee was blown upon the knuckle, sticking fast.

The W. G. Hall¹ came over from Koloa to the assistance of the Makee.

Capt. Peterson gave orders to have the sugar discharged. Something over 200 bags was put into the W. G. Hall and the rest was taken back to Kapaa.

The Makee had her stern lightened, and she swung around into deep water about 5 p. m. Five hours later she had all her cargo out, and she slid off with her keel very badly damaged.

The Makee left for Koloa at 8:30 a. m. on Thursday and arrived in Hanamaulu at 7:30 p. m. same day. Here she met the Mikahala and the two came to Honolulu together.

¹The W. G. Hall was also known as Malulani.
