Scope and Content Note

Another milestone in the history of the American Merchant Marine was reached with the initial sailing from the East Coast of Prudential-Grace Lines' LASH (Lighter Aboard Ship) vessel LASH Italia, an 820-foot steamship which was the first of her type to fly the American flag and was also listed as the largest dry cargo vessel in the American merchant fleet. This was the first of five similar vessels being built for the line, each designed to carry 73 lighters with a cargo capacity of 870 long tons each. The lighters, called floating cargo holds, are hoisted on and off over the stern of the mother ships by gantry cranes which travel on rails and have the capability of stowing or off-loading a lighter in 15 minutes. Container cranes were also provided for handling container vans at the rate of one every three minutes. The first such vessel on the Pacific Coast, the Pacific Far East Lines' Thomas E. Cuffe, was launched at the Avondale yard in New Orleans during the year, the first of six LASH ships under contract. Citation: Tacoma Public Library THOMAS E. CUFFE later purchased by American President Lines and renamed the PRESIDENT HOOVER and after APL renamed LIHUE.

Caption: The First Example Set by the Vigilantes of 1851

  • Lith. by Justh, Quinot & Company.
  • Remarkable Scene in '51. This drawing represents the outcome of the first trial and sentence of a criminal by indignant citizens who took the law into their own hands to suppress the crimes that flooded the State. The courts were apparently in the hands of the politicians and riffraff of the city, who used the process of the law for their own profit. There were many murders between 1849 and 1851, but the perpetrators readily escaped punishment and hangings were rare. The ballot box and the city administration of Justice was a farce. The indignation of the better class of citizens was at fever heat. One day, a Sydney cove, John Jenkins, walked deliberately into a merchant's store, picked up the small safe, carried it to a boat at a nearby wharf, and coolly rowed out into the bay. The alarm was given, and a number of merchants pursued and overtook the man. He threw the safe overboard. Jenkins was brought back and taken to a building that occupied a corner at Sansome and Pine Streets, the site on which the Royal
  • Insurance building is now located. The prisoner was duly tried by a jury and condemned to be hanged. The impromptu Vigilance Committee wasted no time, and the execution took place in the Plaza the same night at 2 a.m. This prompt action had its effect on the criminal class, and for a while they remained under cover. The act and its effect made a deep impression on the merchants and professional men, and thereafter their ideas along this line developed organization and prompt action.
