Five Men Seen Clinging to Wreck at
Dusk But When Line Was Shot
Later No Response
St. .Johns, Feb. 24.---The crack Red
Cross liner Florizel from St. Johns
f i New York by way of Halifax, with
140 persons aboard, including seven
ty-eight passengers, piled upon the
ledges near Cape Race during a bliz
zard today and it is believed that all
on board were lost.
Naval gunners sent on a special
train from this city, shot across the
bow of the partly submerged ship to
night, but waited in vain for it to be
hauled aboard. Just before darkness
blotted the wreck from view, five men
driven from the forecastle--by the
giant seas, were seen to climb the for
ward rigging signalling feebly for
help. But when they failed to make
fast the line it was feared they had
succumbed to the cold and exposure.
These five were the only ones visible
on board several hours after the ship

were twelve women and fo'ur children.
Among the first cabin passer; ers

When the darkness shut in tonight
the Florizel was a battered hulk. She
was smashed from her funnel to aft.
High combers continually swept her
decks, where her bow was held up by
a jagged rock.
Some of those aboard had taken
refuge in the forecastle, but this was
battered during the afternoon, leav
ing the rigging the only place where
a human being could cling for his life.

the wreck commissioner, after sending
a message stating that all lives had
been lost, filed another in w.hich he
reported that five men had appeared
on deck "in a pitiful condlition," andl
asking that steaimers bc sent quickly.
