A Fierce Storm.
Mr. Maurice Power, of Dunville, who lost his boat the Star, at La Perch, in the storm on Thursday and Friday last, arrived here a couple of days ago and left for home this morning. He says it was the worst storm he ever experienced. The gale began Thursday, the wind blowing from the S.E. and later veering to S.S.W. A terrible sea began to go in on the shore, and putting out two bow lines and 3 anchors he and his four men of a crew to save their lives had to go ashore, as did Skipper Wm. Dunphy and his men. Dunphy got out a main anchor to his boat, a bow line to the point and anchors at the port and starboard quarters. The boat rode out the gale, but between 8 and 9 o'clock Friday morning the moorings of Power's boat parted and she was dashed to pieces on the rocks. Dunphy's boat held but time and again was buried in the big waves which ran shorewards, and often went up to the highest point of the cliff. Power's men lost all their clothing, and as the craft is only partially insured it is a great loss to Mr. Power. There was good fishing at LePerch, and he stood to make a fair voyage. It is 25 years ago since there was such another accident in the place.

Indians Erect Church.
It will be remembered that some time ago sub-Chief Jeddor of the Mic-Mac tribe of Indians which reside at Conn River was here in the city collecting for the erection of a new church. The generosity of our people helped in a great measure to the desired object, and now the Indians have a beautiful church 60 by 30 feet in course of construction, and will finish it in a few months time. It is a very pretty structure with two towers, has a concrete basement and supplies a long felt want for the mission. Just across the river they have also built a fine residence for the Parish Priest, Rev. Fr. Sears, and the whole settlement is a thriving one.

Successful Newfoundlander Here.
Capt. Peter Quinlan, brother of Const. Edward Quinlan of the Western Station, and a native of Harbor Main, arrived here by Monday's express on a visit to his mother who is in a dangerous state of illness at her home in Holyrood.

Capt. Quinlan is a Newfoundlander of whom his countrymen should feel proud. Leaving home 30 years ago he took up the seafaring life, and by perseverance, honesty and attention to duty came rapidly to the front of the profession, so that he is now master and owner of the six masted schr. Augustus A. Badcock, so that he is one of the most well known and successful sailing masters in Brooklyn, New York. Capt. Quinlan's vessel makes remarkably quick trips from Brooklyn to Porto Rico, and his wife and daughter invariably travel with him. He leaves for Brooklyn by Friday's express.

A Successful Newfoundlander.
Captain Peter Quinlan, brother of Constables E. and R. Quinlan, formerly of Harbor Main, master and owner of the six-masted schooner, Augustus H. Badcock, arrived by Monday's express, on a visit to his mother, who is now dangerously ill at her home in Holyrood. Captain Quinlan left here about 30 years ago, and began at the bottom of the ladder. At present he is one of the most known and successful sailing masters sailing out of Brooklyn, and is famous for quick trips between Brooklyn and Porta Rica. About eight years ago he was here on a visit, and remained some time, but his present visit is hurried, he only coming to see his dying mother, who has passed the allotted span. Captain Quinlan's wife and daughter are his companions at sea, both sailing with him on each trip. He leaves again for Brooklyn by Sunday's express.

Newfoundland Society of Greater New York. First Annual Banquet.

The first annual banquet, under the auspices of the Terra Nova Society, took place on Saturday, Oct. 16th, at the Astor House, the guest of the evening being Capt. Robert A. Bartlett, the Newfoundland Arctic explorer, who blazed the path for Peary, and has reached farther north than any citizen of the British Empire. Until recently the society was known as the Terra Nova Society, but these are days when Anglo Saxon is good enough, and the English translation carries the more welcome as well as the more familiar sound.

From the Brooklyn Daily Eagle we take the following extracts:

"In the membership of the Newfoundland Society are a number of Brooklynites, and when Captain Bartlett walked into the dining room, there was cheer after cheer.

"Edwin F. Howell is the president of the Newfoundland Society as he was the toastmaster of the occasion. Considerable enthusiasm was the result of a remark by one of the speakers, the Rev. John Wesley Hill, pastor of the Metropolitan Temple, who responded to the toast, "Newfoundland Through American Eyes." Dr. Hill raised a tumult of applause when he declared that Robert E. Peary found his crew among the hardy men of Newfoundland, and declared that Peary was at this time the only undisputed discoverer of the North Pole.

"Edwin B. Woods, of Brooklyn, was responsible for the elaborate decorations of the dining room, and he made a happy response to the toast, "The Ladies." Captain Bartlett made a brief response in good spirit to the sentiment, "Just Bartlett." Other toasts were, "Research in the Arctic Regions," by the Rev. Thomas S. Gregory; "The Natural Resources of Newfoundland," Frederick W. Finlay; "The Trade and Commerce of Newfoundland," O.A. Clough; "Burin and the West Coast," B.R. Buffett; "The Rod, The Gun and The Tent," K.W. Pittman [sic].

"Lillian C. Williamson sang, with Mrs. Hattie Snow as accompanist. Miss Lee Gregory also sang. The dinner committee was composed of Charles Trippe, P.J. Healy [sic], Edwin F. Howell, T.M. Woodford, Edwin B. Woods, P.F. [sic] Foley, Frederick W. Finlay, Captain McGrath, B.R. Buffett. The diners were as follows:
"Harriett N. Andrus, Charles W. Bowring, Benjamin R. Buffett, C.H. Birkner, Wilfred B. Cody, O.A. Clough, Miss M. Connington, Mr. and Mrs. B. Drew, Mrs. James Dalton, Mrs. Hiram Donkin, Miss Mabel Eckhard, Mr. and Mrs. E.S. Elliott, Anthony R. Evans, Mr. and Mrs. F.W. Finlay, Mr. and Mrs. T.F. [sic] Foley, A.S. Foley, Mr. and Mrs. Albert Facey, Henry A. Forward, A.E. Foran, Thomas J. Freeman, the Rev. and Mrs. Thomas B. Gregory, Miss Lee Gregory, the Rev. Dr. John Wesley Hill, Mr. and Mrs. Edwin F. Howell, Miss Genevieve Howell, P.J. Healy [sic], Robert J. Hutton, Miss Muriel E. How, Harry Hedinger, O. Kuhn, Captain and Mrs. John W. McGrath, Lawrence Murphy, Mr. and Mrs. S.A. Moulan, Miss Josephine McLaughlin, Miss Althea Miller, Miss Beatrice Miller, Captain and Mrs. Wm. Morrissey, Mr. and Mrs. J. O'Neill, Kelson W. Pitman [sic], Mr. and Mrs. William H. Pike, Thomas Phelan, John J. Phelan, W.J.S. Ryall, Mr. and Mrs. D. Ryan, Thomas Sullivan, Miss Maude M. Scott, Miss Muriel B. Samways, Mrs. Hattie Snow, Charles Trippe, Mrs. Trites, Joseph Wiseman, A.S. Wiseman, Mr. and Mrs. T.M. Woodford, H.P. Winter, Mrs. William C. Williamson, Mr. and Mrs. Edwin B. Woods, and Jesse Whiteway."

The following was the menu: Oysters. Olives. Radishes. Mock Turtle Soup. Kitty Vitty Codfish. Baccalieu, Sauce Hollandaise. Filet of Beef and Mushrooms, Signal Hill. Brussels Sprouts. Potatoes. Golden Plover, Topsail. Currant Jelly Salad. Fruit. Celery. Charlotte Panache. Coffee. Cakes.

Later, we hope to be in a position to give particulars of some of the speeches. The officers of the Society for the coming year are:

  • President - Edwin F. Howell
  • Vice Presidents - Charles Trippe, H.P. Winter, Capt. J.W. McGrath
  • Secretary - T.M. Woodford
  • Board of Governors - Edwin B. Woods, B.R. Buffett, F.W. Finlay, W.H. Pike, P.J. Healey [sic], Joseph Wiseman, Thos. Sullivan, Thos. J. Foley.

The first three toasts were "The President," "King Edward" and "The Premier of Newfoundland." A cablegram was read from Sir Edward P. Morris congratulating the Society and regretting his inability to be present. The President, Mr. Howell, directed the attention of those present to an excellent painting of Sir Edward, which occupied a conspicuous place on the wall, and was artistically draped with the flags of Great Britain, Newfoundland and the United States. This is said to have been the first occasion on which the Newfoundland flag has been displayed at a public function in New York; it is certainly the first occasion on which it has occupied the post of honor.

The credit of the arrangement of the flags, and indeed the entire decoration of the banquet hall, is due to Mr. Edwin Woods, brother of Hon. H.J.B. Woods and Messrs. Sydney and Chesley Woods, who is one of the Board of Governors of the Newfoundland Society.

Captain Bartlett created a most favorable impression, his modesty and manly courtesy winning the proud appreciation of his compatriots and of all the guests. Newfoundlanders abroad, as well as at home, recognize that, to whomever may fall the honor of having reached the top of the world, it is "Just Bartlett" and his compatriots who made the goal attainable. Capt. Bartlett's likeness adorned the front page of the Menu and Toast Card, a list of the guests appearing on the fourth page. In honoring Bartlett, the Newfoundland Society has honored those Newfoundlanders who accompanied him with Peary in the search; it has honored Newfoundlanders at home, and it has done honor to itself, an organization that has immense possibilities for usefulness.

An Accident.
A promising and intelligent lad named Alexander Ivany, of ten years, met a serious mishap recently, which now necessitates a surgical operation that takes place today in the hospital; in the happy outcome which his neighbours, of Freshwater Road, take a decided interest. In jumping from the top of a fence he injured himself so severely that a medical examination showed he had inflicted abdominal rupture. The boy is quite a leader in his school studies and is well connected on his mother's side with the well-known Candow family of Bonavista, some of whom held the commission of the Peace; his father Mr. William Ivany occupies a trusted position with the Standard Mfg. Co. here. The physicians, it is stated, regard the youthfulness and general healthy condition of their charge as counting for a favourable result, and this, let us hope, will prove to be the case.

A Pitiable Case.
Mrs. *****, of Holyrood, a respectably dressed lady of about 60 years of age was brought in from Holyrood by Constable Quinlan to-day. She was sentenced to a term in the Penitentiary by the resident magistrate for vagrancy. The case is one to enlist sympathy. She has no relations in Holyrood and has been wandering around the place all this summer. The neighbors were very kind to her and gave her food and shelter all the season till they tired of waiting to see some provision of a permanent kind should be made. She had been wandering around lately without food or shelter and the policeman had to arrest her for vagrancy. She has three daughters married comfortably in the United States. She visited them a few years ago but after a time refused to stay with any of them and returned to Newfoundland. Lately she developed a slight sign of insanity. It is certainly hard that she should be sent to the Penitentiary.

Newfoundlanders I Have Met in New York.
Mr. P.J. Healy, President of the Healy Sewer Machine and Construction Company of this city and Boston, was born at Holyrood, Conception bay, Newfoundland forty-eight years ago, and is the second son of Mr. Philip Healy, who before the advent of the "Iron Horse" was well known to the travelling public as keeper of the Holyrood ferry.

Equipped with a sturdy manhood and bright intellect, but with only the limited education to be had at the meager school of the district, young Healy left home in 1887, determined to win.

Nothing better immediately offering, he engaged in the bank fishery with Captain larry O'Brien, of Conception Harbour, N.F., at that time master of the schooner Puritan, sailing from Gloucester. In September, 1888, Captain O'Brien died on the Grand Banks, and his remains being landed at Port Mulgrave, N.S., where an inquest was held, were afterwards conveyed by Mr. Healy to the bereaved family at Gloucester.

It may be that "As the pebble on the streamlets bank May change the course of a might river," this sad occurrence proved the turning point in the course of Mr. Healy's career; at all events the pathetic circumstances attending the death of Capt. O'Brien so affected him that he resolved to give up the sea and seek more congenial employment on shore.

He married at Gloucester, Miss Johanna Tymms of Holyrood, and settled down at Woonsocket, R.I., where he took employment with a Rubber Goods Manufacturing concern but finding no future in this line, in June 1889, engaged in the iron moulding business at The United States Foundry, Chelsea, Mass., becoming shop foreman after six months service. Resigning this place in 1891 we find him with the Metropolitan Sewer Commission of Boston from 1892 ro 1903, during which period he became successively Foreman and assistant superintendent of construction. Here Mr. Healy's genius was afforded an opportunity of results and the idea of the Healy Sewer Cleaning and Exploring device was conceived and developed; letters patent were secured in 1903 in the United States and all foreign countries, including Newfoundland.

On March 25th, 1903 The Healy Sewer Machine and Construction Company was incorporated under the law of Massachusetts for one hundred and twenty-five thousand dollars, with offices at 15 Beacon Street, Boston.

In 1904 the Company opened a branch of its business in the Park Row building, New York City, and here president Healy now makes his headquarters, his son Philip J., being left in charge of his Boston interests.

The Healy Reaming Device for cleaning corroded pipe, especially water pipe, and the "automatic flusher" for pipe sewers were later inventions.

These machines have become very popular and are being disposed to the cities and municipalities throughout the country so rapidly that the company's factories at Hyde park, Mass., and Jersey City, N.J. are kept constantly busy in order to meet the demand.

Together with the development of an extensive business in the manufacture and sale of these machines, Mr. Healy has been very prosperous in core drilling and prospecting contracts in which line he employs an average of thirty men during the year, and owns machinery worth upwards of eighty thousand dollars. He has just undertaken a contract for the New York Water Supply Company of this city for sixty-five thousand dollars, upon which he will be engaged till January next. Mr. Healy has recently purchased a beautiful home at Forest Hills, mass., and has also a house at Revere Beach, near Boston, where Mrs. Healy, one daughter and three sons spend the summer months.

Harbor Main.
I regret to say that the fishery around the head of Conception Bay has been a complete failure this summer. This is the more to be regretted, as owing in a great measure to the prosperous voyages in the past years, a great number of our people remained at home supplied with traps to prosecute the fishery. However, it is to be hoped that the hook and line fishery in the fall may prove more successful. ...
