Captain Robert H. Caughell


, , , , , ,

He was the nephew of Captain James Caughell.


In 1906, he commanded the Berwick

06 Jun 1906, in an article in The Oregon Daily Journal it stated that: WAS IN NO DANCER. Vessel’s Open lease Of Seaside. Captain CaughelL master of the gasoline schooner Berwick, reports that on his last trip from Portland to Rogue River he was forced to seek shelter. In the lee of Tillamook heads while a southeaster was raging on the mouth of the Columbia river and when he reaehed Astoria the other day the pilots there told him that he had stirred up a great excitement by anchoring as close to the beach off Seaside. “We were in no danger at all off the beach.” said Captain Caughell. In speaking of his experience, “but the sea was very rough outside the heads and so we stood in close to shore and dropped anchor. It was on Sunday, May 20. and we saw a lot of people running about the beach and staring at us as though we were in danger, but we could not make them understand that we were perfectly safe. The pilots told me upon my return: that the people of Seaside had sent for assistance and that the tug went out to save us. But the old salts soon discovered that we were not in distress and so turned back. The Berwick is receiving 4 tin and general merchandise at Ainsworth today for Umpqua creamery on Rogue River.

10 Jul 1906 in an article in The Oregon Daily Journal it stated that: … Captain A. J. Betts Loses balance while in Charge of schooner Berwick on Columbia River. Small boat goes to rescue without delay. Still clinging to weighted … when hauled into craft sent out from schooner vessel here. From Rogue River Canneries. Pilot A. J. Betts fell overboard from the schooner Berwick at 5 o’clock this morning and narrowly escaped drowning. The schooner was coming up the river off Ooble at the time and Betts was taking soundings. Suddenly the lead caught on the bottom and not wanting to let go the line he was jerked over the side into the swirling Columbia River. The schooner was under little headway or the corpulent pilot would probably not have walked off the Berwick when she arrived at Couch street dock this morning for weighted down with the lead line to which he clung tenaciously, he would undoubtedly have crossed into the great haven beyond, where all good navigators eventually end up. The Berwick arrived at Astoria yesterday morning from Rogue River and left up at 1 o’clock. Being equipped with gasoline auxiliary engine she needs no towboat, but does not break speed records, and hence Pilot Betts thought he would take advantage of the shortest possible route. Off Ooble the regular amp channel is swept by a strong current and Instead of bucking that the pilot turned into the eddy along the Oregon shore. Dangerous rocks protrude here and there and In order to avoid piling up on one of them the lead was brought into play. Then the unexpected happened and the cry of “man overboard” brought the whole crew of the Berwick on deck. In remarkably quick time. According to the sailors Pilot Betts never uttered a cry for help and that fact led some of the … to believe that only a drill had been called. The schooner was stopped … small boat was launched and in about In minutes the vessel was again underway with the lead flying over, the aide at regular intervals, all of which goes to show that at no time did the pilot let go the line. The Berwick reached her Portland dock at 1 o’clock this morning. Captain R. H. Caughell reports that, the voyage from Rogue River was delightful with fair weather most of the way. Strong northeasterly winds prompted Captain Caughell to put into Port Orford for a couple of days and then be stopped at Coos Bay and took on a couple of hundred tons of coal to be sold here. This is the third visit of the Berwick to Portland. She is engaged in carrying supplies to the Hume canneries on Rogue River and formerly plied between that place and San Francisco.

Georgeson, a prominent real estate dealer, and offered him a document to be copied and signed in his hand writing which purported to be a confession of Georgeson that he had made improper advances to Caughell’s wife. The two men entered a private office and locked tho door. “Caughell is supposed to have produced a revolver and forced Georgeson to copy the document but when the signature was reached Georgeson refused to affix his name. An employee of the Freeman Art company, next door, heard a scuffle and telephoned to the police station for aid. Officers entered the offices and placed Caughell under arrest. Georgeson was found lying on the floor unconscious and bleeding from a beating he had sustained at the hands of Caughell. Caughell fired one shot, but failed to hit his man. Georgeson, fearfully bruised and lacerated about the head from the beating received from Caughell was rushed to the hospital, and at last accounts was not in a critical condition. Caughell was placed under $5,000 bonds. Caughell. after having been relieved of the command of the small schooner Berwick, was employed as mate on the steamer Breakwater plying between Portland and Coos bay. but did not hold the position but a few trips, While here he had the reputation of courting notoriety.

Frank N. Thayer Mutiny 02 Jan 1886


, , , ,

09 Feb 1886 in an article in The Daily Morning Astorian it stated that: RETRIBUTION. In the latter part of January the telegraph brought an account of a mutiny on board the American ship Frank Thayer, off Capo of Good Hope, while in route from Manilla to London, and the murder of the captain Clarke by his crew. The murder and mutiny were dreadful and deserve punishment, but there may have been extenuating circumstances. The previous record goes far to show that Captain Clarke was not wholly undeserving of his fate. The trial of Captain Clarke of the American ship Sunrise at San Francisco in the summer of 1873 was a criminal trial of great notoriety. Shortly after his arrival, several of his crew charged him with great cruelty. He, with his two mates, Harris and Maloney, were tried on these charges before Judges Sawyer and Hoffman. The trial was long, and was not concluded till the latter part of October, 1873. Captain Clarke was convicted on seven of the fourteen counts. He was sentenced by Judge Sawyer to fourteen months in the county jail, and to pay a fine of $1,000. A month later first mate Harris was convicted on twenty-four counts in the indictment. He was sentenced to state prison for four years. Second mate Maloney pleaded guilty and got off with two months in the county jail. He died when in jail three weeks. Harris served his time. President Grant pardoned out Captain Clarke and he paid his fine of $1,000, and went east overland with his wife. While in jail and negotiations for his pardon were pending, his father, an old sea captain, had come out from Boston, taken command of his son’s ship and sailed out of port. There was one feature of the trial that aroused great indignation at the time. It was caused by the act of the United States marshal in handcuffing the sailors who were detained as witnesses, and marching them from the jail where they had been confined to the courtroom to give their testimony, in irons. The trial and attendant circumstances were almost forgotten when, in loss, the American ship Uatherer, Sparks master, arrived at Wilmington, Ual., from New York. Clarke was first mate, and another brute named Watts was second mate. While on the way out two of the crew had jumped overboard to escape the cruelties of the officers. Several of the unfortunate sailors we remained or disfigured for life. Watts was tried and sent to the penitentiary Sparks jumped overboard while off the mouth of the Columbia river, and now Clarke, one of the cruelest of fiends that ever disgraced the deck of an American ship, has met his death at the hands of an infuriated crew in far off southern seas.

08 Apr 1898 in an article in The Corvallis Gazette it stated that: SCHOONER ARAGO LOST. All Hands Perished With the ill-rated vessel in Alaskan waters. San Francisco, April 7. news of a tragedy and a probable disaster in Alaskan waters was made public yesterday. The tragedy was the drowning while leaving a wedding feast of three of the crew of the cod fishing schooner Arago, and the disaster was the probable loss some weeks later of the vessel herself with all hands.

Johns and an unknown man of the Arago‘s crew left the party in a dory, and it is supposed were drowned.

18 Sep 1914 in an article in the Morning Oregonian it stated that: Girl home from war Miss May Kelly pictured race to escape LEIPSIG.

British Officer Aboard Grows Uneasy and Captain Threaten Irons if Talk is Repeated. Among the passengers on the British Union liner Maitai, which recently arrived at San Diego from Tahiti after an exciting run through waters of the South Pacific to escape the Ger man cruiser Leipsig, was Miss May Kelly, of Portland, who arrived home last night. Captain Carson, of the Maitai, was in a peculiar dilemma. He had on board the German Consul from Tahiti, a French port. According to the International code of warfare the British captain was required to deliver the Consul and his family at a neutral port in safety. He put in at San Diego, therefore, instead of going direct to San Francisco. Miss Kelly says that the Maitai was in almost constant danger of approach by German vessels, several of which were known to be in the South seas and off the North American coast. Among the passengers were several Englishmen from Australia, much disgusted because they had to change ships at Wellington from the big Willochra to the small Maitai. They refused to listen to the steamship company’s explanation that the Willochra was a chartered boat, whose owners refused to let her make the run, and were a continual source of annoyance through out the voyage. At San Diego the ringleader a Captain in the British army, told the passengers that Captain Carson was lost and came in to find out where he was, beside calling him numerous uncomplimentary names, so Captain Carson sent for the man to come up on the bridge, told him in the presence of his officers exactly what he thought of him in very seamanlike language, and that if he heard one more whimper from him the rest of the voyage he would put him in irons.

22 May 1902 in an article in the Morning Oregonian it stated that: Stories of eyewitnesses. Destruction of the Roraima In St. Pierre Harbor. New York. May 21 The steamer Korona had arrived from Fort de France, Martinique, having on board two survivors of the steamer Roraima, lost in the St. Pierre disaster. These are Ellery Scott, chief officer; Charles Thompson (colored), assistant purser. Both de clined to discuss their experiences. Neither shows much evidence of hard usage. Joseph Fralts, second steward of the Korona told the following story:”We did not know that St. Pierre had been destroyed when we left Barbados.”We knew that there had been an eruption, because we had heard the noise and had seen great clouds of ashes which had covered Barbados. We went to St. Pierre to. .get the passengers and mall as usual When we arrived off the town we saw that -it was in rums. Clouds of smoke were rising in the air, so that we could not see Mount Pelee. Streams of lava were running down to the sea and the water was discolored.” G. Johnson, of St. Louis, was traveling in the West Indies. and was at Barbados when the eruption occurred. He also came upon the Korona, and made this statement: “About 4:30 on the afternoon of Thursday, May 5, in Barbados. It suddenly became intensely dark. The people were panic-stricken. All the lamps had been lighted in the houses. A shower of volcanic ash covered the entire place to a depth of three inches or more. The noise of the eruption- was plainly heard, and sounded like cannonading. “When the Korona arrived off St. Pierre on Friday morning. May 9, the town was still afire. The place was a picture of absolute desolation. We went in until we were about 500 yards off shore, and did not see a living thing. We could not see Pelee for the cloud of smoke that obscured it. The water was full of floating bodies.” Captain John W. Carey, of the Korona, related how he reached St Pierre, and on learning of the destruction of the Roraima put back to Fort de France, where he took on board four of its survivors, Scott. Thompson and two colored men from St. Kitts. Roraima Survivor’s Story. “On the way up,” said Captain Carey, “Scott told me the story of their terrible experience. He said the Roraima got into the harbor about 6:30 A. M. on the 5th and about 8 or 8:30 a terrible explosion came from the mountain. In an instant it began to rain fire and mud over the harbor. Captain Muggah jumped on the bridge and cried, ‘Heave way and get up the anchor quickly.’ He then went forward, where he began to superintend the work of getting up the anchor. They had not got more than a few fathoms of chain aboard when there came a great river of burning lava reaching down the mountainside and plunging into the bay. It shoved the water back and rolled the Roraima on her side. Captain Muggah was on the bridge at the time. “With the rush of water the ship’s decks were swept clean. All her deckworks, boats and bulwarks were torn away and went overboard. Scott saw Captain Muggah swept away with the wreckage of the bridge and leaped from the forecastle head. He was dashed to the deck by the rush of the crew In their mad flight, and trampled under foot, and but for the action of two of the steerage passengers, colored men from St Kitts, he would have perished with the others who were burned to death by the lava, which poured in on the vessel’s decks. These men seized him and dragged him into the steerage, where he stayed with them, and by wrapping their heads in blankets they succeeded in escaping serious injury. “‘Meanwhile Thompson, the assistant steward, who was on deck when the first outburst came, succeeded in reaching his room and closing the door, where he stayed until the worst of the first shock was over. An open ventilator let the flames reach him, and he was badly burned about the neck and lost one ear. When the first shock appeared, he managed to make his way to the steerage, where he joined Scott and the two St. Kitts men in saving the passengers and members of the crew who were still living. They gathered these in the steerage, and all who were able joined them in fighting the flames back, and managed to keep the fire confined to the after part of the vessel until the French cruiser Suchet came along and took them off. “Before they were rescued they started to build a raft, and under Mate Scott’s directions this was nearly completed and provisioned for the attempt to get away from the death hole they were in. Scott says that when Captain Muggah was carried away with the ship’s superstructure, Daniels, the ship’s cooper. Jumped overboard and tried to rescue him. He had a hold on the captain and dragged him on a hatch cover which was floating near by. He then saw that Captain Muggah was already beyond all help. He said his chest and abdomen were torn away as though cut off with a knife. Leaving the body on the hatch, Daniels swam back to the ship and helped the survivors fight the flames. He was himself badly burned. Second Officer McCarthy, of the Korona, says the Talisman bad an even more peculiar “experience than his ship with the shower of ashes. The Talisman was 120 miles south-southwest of Barbados when the eruption came. He said: “When she came into Barbados, where we were lying, her decks were covered with the fine blue dust. Here was a ship nearly 125 miles from the island on which the eruption occurred, which experienced even a heavier shower of dust than we did, at 20. miles. It seemed to go up in the air at a terrific speed and to a height above the wind which, was blowing from the south-southwest, and then fail In a shower of dust at a great distance away.”
