Hard to Beat!
THAT'S exactly the case with our hats—they are hard to
beat in any respect. They are hard to beat in appear
ance, because they're the handsomest specimens of head
wear ever seen in Los Angeles; _
they're hard to beat for wear be- Qjrf J&r^s
cause they're genuine, well made JS«J »
and durable, and impossible to /T?R
beat in price because they're 'LA
sold at such ridiculously low fig- /
ures that such a word as " bar- %\
gain " doesn't half tell the story.
When winter has got into the

at prices that will please.

OVERWHELMED BY WAVES.
The Steamship Pomeranian's
A Tremendous Sea Temporarily
Engulfs the Vessel.
Part of the Crew aad Passengers
Evcrythlng Above Decka Carried Away.
The Captain Killed and the
Ship Taken Back to Fort
By the Associated Pross.]
Ghebnock, Scotland, Feb. 11.—The
Allan line steamer Pomeranian, from
Glasgow for New York, returned here
after a terrible experience. When out
1200 miles daring a heavy storm every
thing above deckß was swept away by a
bnge wave which boarded the vessel
when nobody was prepared for it. John
Cook and John Hamilton, second and
fourth officers; James Prltohard and
Fred Westbury, stewards; Peter Mt-
Cleanand William TJrquhart, seamen;
James and Lillian Gibson, Jane Caffery
and John Stewart, first cabin, and Peter
Forbes, second cabin passengers, were
washed overboard and drowned. Cap
tain Dalziel was dashed against the bul
warks and so severely hurt that he died
next day. The vessel was then put
about and started back under command
of the first officer.
The Pomeranian encountered boister
ous weather immediately after leaving
port. It was thought the wind would
food blow iteelf out, but instead of abat
ing, the gale incraaaed in severity until
the day of the disaster. The 4th of
February dawned with a frightful gale
raging and a tremendously high sea run
ning. The hatches were battened down
and covered with tarpaulins, the venti
lators were turned to leeward and every
precaution dictated by good seamanship
had been taken to prevent the water
lrom getting below.
Several seas were chipped, but they
did no damage. Suddenly a trenion
doua sea reared its crest a short distance
ahead of the steamer as she plunged
down a wave. Before she could rise the
sea came over the starboard bow and
tons of green water rushed aft. Almost
at the same time the falling wave astern
csme aboard. The result almost defies
description. The deck of the saloon, the
chart house, bridge and boats were
smashed to pieces and partly washed
overboard. The deck was covered with
an almost inextricable mass of wreckage,
vrfvuiiv ,un itui nftrrfr-Tjr'iaaed,
was not known. The steamer mgs£? B J.
pay off before the wind and the sea, and
it was at once seen that the man at the
wheel had been carried overboard. Two
sailors sprang to the wheel and coon put
the Bteamer on her course. Then it was
found that Captain Dalziel was missing.
He was last seen standing on the lee
side of the steamer, aft of the saloon, in
conversation with a saloon passenger
named John Stewart. They were both
dashed against the deck house, then
carried with terrific force and jammed
beneath the steam winches. Captain
Dalziel's legs were broken and he sus
tained internal injuries. He was care
fully removed to his room, but died next
morning. Stewart's legs were also
broken and he sustained other injuries,
from the effects of which he died in a
At the time of the accident Second
Officer John Cook was on the bridge
with John Hamilton, fonrth officer, and
both of them were carried overboard
In the ealoon deckhouse, when the
eea broke over the steamer, were James
Gibson and Lillian Gibson of Dalkeith,
and Jane Gaffery of Londonderry, all
cabin passengers. They were carried
over the side and not afterwards seen.
David Forbes of Dundee, a second
cabin passenger, and James Pritchard
and Fred Weetbury, stewards, were also
lost in the same manner.
When the sea boarded the steamer
every man about the deck who caw it
coming grabbed bold of stanchions or
anything else convenient, and it ia due
to this that the losb of life was not much
larger. For a time the utmost conster
nation prevailed, but this gave way to a
feeling of ssdness when it waa found so
many lives were lost.
With Captain Dalziel fatally Injured
and unconscious in the cabin, the com
mand of the steamer devolved upon the
first officer. When the chart room was
carried away, the charts, sextants and
quadrants, in fact everything essential
to the navagation of the ship went with
it. The binnacle box and compass on
the bridge were also gone overboard,
and had it not been that the compass
remained it is doubtful if the steamer
would have reached port for many days
The situation of affairs was terrible.
The first officer called the remaining
officers of the steamer to a consultation
and it was deolded to pnt about and re
turn to Greenock, this was at once
done, and without any instrnments
with which to make observations, the
voyage had to be made by dead reckon
ing and was necessarily slow. The first
officer was highly commended for his
skillful seamanship, for having navi
gated the Pomeranian under such ad
The ccci.c at the burial of Captain
Dalziel was one of the saddest ever
witnessed at sea. The crew and pas
sengers stood silently weeping during
the Bimple and mournful ceremony.
The waves were running mountain high
and all felt they too might soon be with
the departed captain.
Veteran sailors who were on board
declare that during their experience of
SO years the storm was the worst they
ever encountered. If the ship had not
been staunch and the discipline good it
would have foundered. Although the
discomfort endured was very great, no
body complained. Everybody looked
forward with eagerness to safe arrival on
land and all were too glad to be alive to
complain of lack of accommodations.
The interior of the Pomeranian ia badly
damaged and will require extensive re

A LINCOLN BANQUET.

New York, Fub. 11.—The Republican
club tonight gave a Lincoln anniversary
dinner. More than 300 men distin
guished in nearly every walk in life
were present and orators of the occasion
came from all parts of the country, each
iv his own way typifying and represent
ing some sentiment or phase of national
politics. The club president, John S.
Smith, presided. At his right sat Sec
retary of the Treasury Charles Foster
and at his left Col. Robert G. Ingersoll.
Others at the guests' table were Dr.
Chauncey M. Depew, Senator W. C.
Sauire of the atail. of Washington, Con

man J. C. Taylor of Ohio, Assistant-Sec
retary of the Interior Bussey, (ien. Hor

President Smith, in making the open
ing address, Baid: "The little skirmish
of last November was but a temporary
triumph for Great Britain and the
Anglomaniacß, which will be blowed out
in a great tide in the Republican vic
tory that will sweep the parly into
power in 1896."
Colonel Ingersoll responded to the
toast, Abraham' Lincoln. He said in
part: "Abraham Linejln was a strange
mingling of the tragic, heroic and gro
tesque; a personification of all that was
gentle, just, humane aud honest;
merciful, laughable, loveable and
divine, and all these sterling attributes
he consecrated for the use of man. Lin
coln had no ancestors; he had no fel
lows and no successor. How can we ac
count for this great character in our his
tory? He never abused power except
on the side of mere, and knew no fear
except that of being wrong. His was
the grandest figure ot our times aud the
gentlest memory of our world."
Secretary of the Treasury Foster fol
lowed Colonel Ingersoll, speaking for the
administration. He thought the coun
try now concedes tnat the great
office of president is filled by as able a
man as ever sat in that chair. He pos
sesses many of the traits which have
been described of Lincoln. He never
did anything in the world he did not
think was right. Headed by such a
man, it is not surprising that his cabi
net and ministers have been unusually
successful in their offices.
Chauncey M. Dapew spoke to the
Republican Party. He said, in part:
"It ia our pride and glory as a party
that there has been neither incompe
tency nor corruption in the Republican
administration from Abraham 'Lincoln
to Benjamin Harrison. The moat ex
plicit pledge and promise in the Demo
cratic platform was to repeal the purchas

but yet an imperial mandate from the

New York, Feb, 11.—The Washing

says: A triple alliance between the
United States, Russia and France —enct
is the international combination of forcei
for mutual benefit and defense which
has been eecretely pending for six yean
and which, unknown either to the dip
lomatic or political world at large,
culminated in executive session
of the United States eenati
two days ago. This is the first publii
announcement of the weighty meaning
which lay behind the seemingly unim
portant and formal announcement that
an extradition treaty with Russia was
ratified. Within the past six months
two treaties, the only ones pending be
fore the senate, have been ratified.
These are extradition treaties with
Russia and France, and, as has
b»en stated, their ratification is
08 world wide significance. In
ratifying these* treaties, the United

pledges, both orally through the Rus

THOSE PNEUMATIC GUNS*
Farther Togta of the Battery or the
Pokt Royal, 8. 0., Feb. 11.—The
charge of powder in the Vesuvius's* pro
jectiles was today increased from 10 tc
15 pounds with the intention of making
whatever explosion that might occur
more perceptible. The gun-powder con
tained in four of seven shells was placed
in socks each with a view of accomplish
ing a detonation more readily. Captain
RapietT holds to the belief that in
three of the five shells fired yesterday,
the gun powder was dispersed by th»
more rapid action of gun cotton and
failed to explode. He believes, how
ever, that all the fuses fulfilled theii
functions and detonated the primers
both of the powder and cotton. The
range selected today was the same as
that of yesterday, 2000 yards. The first
shot almost duplicated that of yesterday.
No explosion was noticed. Three other
shots were fired with practically the
same results, no explosions being noticed.
