Observer A. W. Drinkwater, of tho Cur?

by tho inland route, and reports tho loss
of the schooners Mabel Rose nnd J. YV.
Holden. Tho Mabel Rose. owned by
Messrs. T. C- Llley, Joseph M. Clark and
cthers, left thls clty Wedncsdny after
noon for Now York, Wlth 405,000 fect of
lumber, from Tunls Mllls, ln Bcrkley,
consigned to tho Wiley Parkcr Compnny,
New York. She passed out the capos
Thursday, and was cuught ln tho atorm
Frlday night off the Eastern Shore of
Virglnin. The vessel was blown down
tho coast, and at 0 o'clock Saturday
morning the Rose becarae water-logged.
lCaptaln Walton, t'ogether with hls fl-ew,
took to the fore rigglng, and thero re
malned until tho boom broke, compelllng
their retreat. The eiglit men crawled un- j
der the after quarter-deck. and there re- ,
In-.alned lashed all night. Between 4 and \
b o'clock Saturday nfternoon the Rose j
struck the beach, after havlng previously
?truck and been blown off agaln. Tho j
llfe-savers trled to get a shot lino to tho |
vessel. but darkness prevented, nnd the
attempt had to be abandoned until early
WORK OF RESCTJE.
The life-savers had seen the Rose about
2 P. M. Saturday. with her crew in tho
rigging, but she was then two miles out
al sea, and nothing could be done for her.
At i A. M. Sunday the life-savors suc
ccedexi in shooting a llne acrosB the

bhlpped ln Norfolk.
The schooner Rose and her cargo were
uninsured. and the loss of the vessol will
be total. A largo part of tho lumber can
be saved, and arrangemenUs to this end
were belng made to-day.
It is estlmated that the cargo of lumber
carried by tho schooner Roae from Nor?
