LOSS OF CARGO OF

The freighter Hhiayo Warn ! which
has been anchored off port Since her
arrival at midnight Friday with her
cargo afire, was docked, on the Ewn

terday morning. Harbormaster Wil
liam R. Foster removed the batch cov
ering early in the morning and exposed
the burning rnrgn to the air for near
ly nn hour. No flames, however, were
observed and it is believed tbat any
fire that might have withstood the
water and steam which hss beea pour
ed iato the hold since the blsse. was
discovered Inst Wednesdsy morning, is
confined to smouldering in the cotton

this morning to the pier near the Inter-Island

Much Cargo Lost
It is estimated tbat there are 1500
tons of cargo in the main hold bal

ter says that all except the machloery
will represent n totl loss for there is
now eleven feet of water la the bold.
What has not been damaged by water
and fire will most certainly be ruined
by the steam which has been pouring
in through the batch covering and
ventilators since last Wednesday morn

Captain Foster waa lowered dowa to
