[ Captain Nichols is more familarly [known as "'Nick' the Boatnmn." CAPTAIN JACK WILLIAMS Captain Jack Williams, generally known as "Captain Jack," the swim- ruing instructor at Catalina Island, was born in New Orleans in the year 1835. He is now 89 years old, and was born of Portuguese parents. In his early life he was a sea faring man, and has seen a good portion of the world. He has been a noted swimmer most of his life. He competed with all the best swimmers of his day and defeated a great many, carrying off numerous trophies. Captain Jack has, by record, saved and rescued 62 lives. Twelve of these persons were pronounced dead; but by a process of his own, in the way of reviving persons who are beyound hope, he restored them to life, and in some instances was well rewarded for his efforts. In the year 1882 he swam in a 1800- yard race, winning a $1000-purse, and defeating Captain Webb, a workl- noted swimmer, who swam the En- glish channel. Captain Jack was given a light posi- tion by D. M. Reuton, manager of the Wrigley interests, who realized that the 4v|~A~T ]l Captain was not able to do much, but i IN HALL yet needed aid. The Captain says he intends to take up his work where he left off last fall, [ Merchant Tailor and give swimming les.~ons at Catalina ~] to all those who care to patronize him.
