The dcpaiture of the tug Eleu was
reported In this paper yesterday. She
succeeded In getting to the scene of
tlio disaster shortly before 2 o'clock.
A boat was sent off from the Dunreg

To him, Captain Hone) man explained
how he went ashore in the following

Captain Honeyman he had better take

advice was given by the tug boat cap
tain In the morning but was not fol
lowed. The captain saw things In n
different light In tlio afternoon and the
sails came down. A line was passed
from the tug boit to the Dunreggan

Com. I'ond stntes that the captain of
the Dunreggan wanted to make terms
with him also.
Captain Merry, commander of the
Naval Station, said this morning: "I
