the stoim Filday and Satuiday. The
olllceis aie, as usual, unwilling to dis
cuss their expei iences, but It Is known
that both ships and men were In gieat
poi 11. When the Ueet was visited by a
lepiesentatlve of the United Associat
ed Pi esses this afternoon, it was
learnqd that the actual loss consisted
of four lives, eight men serlouslv ln
juied and minor Injuiies to almost all
of the vessels. The battleship Maine
had five of her men oveiboaid, thtee of
them losing their lives. The Marble
head lost ono man killed and five In
juied. The killed on the Maine were
L C. Kogol, appi entice, dashed to
death against tuuets and body lost at
sea; John Brown, seaman, washed
oveiboaid and dt owned, body not le
coveied; A. B. Nelson, pilvate United
States mailnes, washed ovei board and
drowned, body lost.
The Maiblehead lost Ships Carpenter
Stiawhat, who was dashed to death by
the sea. Ills body was saved and
bin led at sea Sunday. Seven of the
caipontois' rang, who were nt woik
on the sea anchoi, weie hulled against
the supei structure of the ship by the
sea and moie or less Injuied.
The New Yoik, the Columbia, the
Amphitrlte and the Maine were off the
coast below Hatteins and about foi tv
miles out, when the stoim began to
gather Filday night.
The ndmlial signalled fiom the New
Yoik, for the ships to stand together.
The stoim was blowing fiom the south
east. It steadily Inci eased duilng the
night nnd the lour ships weie sepai at
ed. So heavily did the New Yoik loll
that the big eight-Inch guns In the tur
lets weie lashed down with heavy haw
seisasa precaution. Duilng the stoim,
a heavy sea l oiled over the stein and
the aft companionvv'ny was Hooded w Ith
water, which went down Into the olll
ceis quaiteis. The pun poits and tor
pedo tubes also let great quantities of
water in. The boatswain William An

was knocked to spllnteis and one of
the olllceis neailj dashed over the side
When moinlng came, the Maine was
sighted and spoken. The- battleship, It
Is believed, had the most tijing ex
perience of the Ueet. Filduy night
Appi entice Kozel was struck by a teirl
ble sea and had his life dashed out of
him. Two men Jumped after him as h'"

was laboring heavily and had out her

tained for the Amphltilte, but she
lode out the gale and as far as can be
learned, lost "jo lives. On boaid the
Maine a board of Inquiry lepoited on
the loss of three men.
Kxnctly what amount of Injury the
various vessels themselves sustained
during the storm canliot now be stated.
The olllcers say that their ships be
haved splendidly, but It wns evident
even to a casual obseiver that the
vessels had lecelved rough usage at
the hands of the hunlcane. It Is prac
tically cei tain, however, that none of
them have been seriously injuied. It
Is not probable that the manoeuvies
will be seilously Intel feied with or re
