The German tank steamship Hesperus
cams in from Hamburg yesterday with a
broken foremast, a pile of shattered fit
tings stre-^n around her deck and about
twenty feet of her starboard rail missing.
She was thoroughly seaworthy, her skipper
said, but she will have to undergo some
repairs before returning to Hamburg. The
Hesperus had been hit in the fog off Nan
tucket in a way not unlike that in which
the Baltic was rammed a week ago in mid-
Atlantic by the German tank steamship
Standard. In this instance, however, the
damage was done by the big six-masted
schooner Addie M. Lawrence, bound in
ballast for Philadelphia from Boston.

He stopped his engine;
' Within two minutes," said Captain
Dalldorf. "the big six-master, under full
sail, came upon us out of the fog and hit
us a hard blow on the starboard bow. Her
bowsprit raked our forecastle and was
caught by the foremast, which was broken
in two places, about ten feet above the
deck and again about thirty feet higher.
The schooner fell away, and we thought
that was the last we would hear -from her.
but within a minute on she came again.

breaking the .ironwork . and. whatever- fit-,
tings were intact after the first blow. Her
bowsprit, smashed to splinters, was strewn
about the deck forward, and as she fell
away aft the stub of her broken bow
ripped off about twenty feet of our star
board rail. The damage to the Hesp.eru?
looked serious for a while, but an exami
nation showed that we could easily make

vessel, asking if he needed assistance, but
the six-master drifted away, and that was
