Ob ot the Vessels Omi Down With On
Hundred and Thirty-Two Souls A
Dense Fog the Causa of tlia Aeoldeat,
L'at of tha Saved auid Missing;.
London, Nov. 23. Tlia Netherlands Una
itoamer W. A. Scholten, Opt. Taal, left
Rotterdam for Now York Saturday and
collided with the steamer Rosa Marjr, ten
miles off Dover, at 11 p. m. and sunk. Tho
steamer Ebro, of Sunderland, rescued ninety
of tho pas-mngers and 13 J are missing.
At tho tlmo of the accident a donso fog
prevailed, nnd tha ScholUM was struck on
tha port bow by the Rosa Mary, and alio
went down with a holo eight feot wido In
ber sido In twenty minutes. Diraotly after
the shock all wna confusion aboard the sink
ing steamer, and tho shrieking, jostling
crowd of stoora;o passangerj made the loss
"of lifo greater than it would have bean had
they obeyed tho captain's orders and kept
quiet. Two biats wore lowored, but it was
found impossible to cut off tin boats on tho
starboard side. Many secured lifo bolts and
were saved. Several women who had the
belts wero doprived of them by Dutch Bill
on, who snatched them from the women's
bodies. The Eoro had a quantity of lumber
on board wh.oh tha captain or lered thrown
in tha water, and to whloh some clung and
I Conflicting stories about tha disaster are
told by the two shlpt' crews. The Roaa
Mary had out maithaad lights but no sido
lights, i idlcating that shj was at anchor.
An ofllcer of the Scholten says be supposed
the Rosa Mary was at anchor anl gave ber
sufficient room ao as to past, but he discov
ered too late that she vai coining down on
the port bow. OfQrs of the Rosa Mary
say that they were at anchor and did not
steam up until morning.
Several bo Ilea wore reco vara 1 at Dovor,
among them Henri Blanc, of O.uo, the sole
cabin p&sener. Liro nu nbars of tha
bodies look as thoufn they hal been froaan
to death. Tha water was so extremely o old
that many parishei from exhtuuion.
Tha steamar Ssholtea was a first-class
Clyde-built steamthlp, thirteen years old,
1711) net tonnage, and valued at $25'), 000.
She had a permit for sixty cabin, forty in
termediate and 530 steerago pasiengers, and
is believed to have had a cargo of dry goods,
gin, Rhine wines and herring.
It is stated that a mackerel boat, which
bas just arrived at Hastings report? that a
steamer ran across and damaged her nets in
the earlr part of last night, 'and that the
mackerel boat gave chase to the vessel in
the hope of identifying her and claiming
compensation. While chasing the steamer
the crow of the mackerel boat saw hor run
Into tho Scholten. A color of truth is given
this story by the fact that fragments of fish
ing note were found on the bows of the Rosa
Two bodies, victims of tha Scholten dis
aster, were brought ashore this morning at
Deal, one of which has been identified as
that of Capt. Taat, master of the lost Tea
sel. Mr. Robson, one of the resoued pas
sengers, states that tha Scholten had just
weighed anchor when the collision occurred.
He says that there ware 800 belts on board,
and that the passengers mostly secured
them, but that they were very nearly use
less, as the ship was engulfed so soon after
the collision. Rbson also states that tho
Bcholten'a decks burst when she foundered,
thus adding greatly to the loss of life. The
vessel now lies in twenty fathoms of water,
and is in the way of shipping. The sur
vivors of the wreokad Scholten will sail on
Wednesday for New York on another
steamer, provi led by tha company.
Chief Mate Wells, of tha steamer Rosa
Mary, said this morning to a United Prt8
representative: "We left Hartlepool last
Friday undor tho command of Capt. Web
ster an. I with a crew of sixteen men. About
6:30 ou Saturday night tho collision occur
red. We had been at anchor Binco H o'clock.
The captain and I ware on the bridge. Tha
sea was calm, our lights were burning
brightly and the fog bell was being con
stantly sounded. I first saw tha steamer
that collided with us off our starboard bow.
She was then showing red and green lights,
indicating that ahe was shaping her course
to the starboard side. We could not shift
our position as tho tide was ebb and were
anchored, I next noticed the steamer port
ber helm and attempt to crow our bows.
The tide, however, was not rightly judged,
and the vestal settled on our bows, cutting
the Rosa Mary to the waters edge. I can
not tell the name of the vessel that collided
with us. Whatever vessel it waa she pro
ceeded on her course and soon disappeared
in the darkness. We remained at anohor
during the night and wore piloted to Dover
at 7 o'clock in the morning. There we
Capt. Webster, of the Rosa Mary, state
that the weather from the time he left
Hartlepool, waa hasy.
Ou Saturday morning the fog became so
dense they wore oompellod to anchor for
three hours off Halfonlnesi. At 11 o'clock
thsy proceeded and passed the east Goodwin
lightship at 7 o'clock In the evening. The
fog becoming again thick, thoy aaohorod at
8 o'clock, the steamer being then about
eight miles west southwest of the east
Goodwin light. The forecastle lookout was
the first to intimate tho approach of a
'Teasel. The collision, Capt. Webster says,
occurred about t0:S) p. m.

Herself to Death Seosatloiiiil ltnport.
Chicago, Nov. 33. The Rev. Dr. Bol
ton, of the First MethoJfist church, who at
tended the executed Anarchists during their
last hours, compares their death with that
ot the impenitent thief, who was crucified
with Jesus. Fioldon and Schwab are
likened to the thief on the cross who snu;ht
forgiveness. Dr. Bo.ton's comparison was
tho subject cbodon Sunday by him for bis
regular weekly sermon. Tho doctor's audi
en co was a large ouo Ho said:
''Men are moved, lei and lull lencod very
largely by the thought and preonco of
other men. Tins impenitent thief on tho

robber of notable, pjrhaps uationul, reputa

admirers and supporters, who, lu tuo hour
of his imprisonment, Rent lutn cneer until

channel, and he lived on the flattery and
cheer of his followers.

and words. How can he recant in their
presence, wbon uiauy of them bod taicen

strange, when be beard tho soldiers and
rabble waiting from below that ho, 'out of
his torture,' shou.d join thiin. It takts
more of a man to change, acknowledge his
wrongs and seek for pardon tudor such cir
cumstances, than it does to die in sin
Tne proacher described the .Anarchists,
nervously walking from the door to tho
back of the cells walking like caged tirers
when all hope of escape is gone. Three ot
these men call for and receive liquors, one
declines but asks for a cup of strong coffee,
which is given him.
"'Now,' ho says, 'I dio llko Jesus died at
the hand of my murderers.1
"Whyr I asked.
'"Because I can not help It.'
"They move to the scaffold, b it thoy movs
together, looking into e.uh otnor'a face,

see each other no more, and are stimulated
no more by the presonce of officials and
newspaper men, whom they look upon as
"They began to speak, but oh, the last,

as the cap fell over taw face and he began,
not knowing what he was saying,' to talk.
Thus they die, unrepentent, recklossiy,
without hope, and 10.0JJ will take courage
