Dress has cvir been a furor lie theme of

DISASTER AT SEA.
A French Fishing; Ilnr'iue Itun Down by

Two l.leen I.imt Only Two Men Mured.
Nkw Yojik, Mny 89. The steamer City
of Koine, ef tho Anchor line, from Liter
pool, when olf the banks of New Foumlland
on tho 25th Inst, ran over tho French barque
Georgo Johns, which sank Immediately.
She had twenty-four persons on board, of
whom only two were saved. Tho passen
gers of tho City of Rome signed a testimo
nial praising tho captain of tho steamship
and the officers for promptness In putting
out two life-boats and doing everything pos
sible In trying to save life. A dense fog
prevailed at tho time. The lookout could
not seo tho barque, which was at anchor.
All hod sunk except five when the boats
were got out, and three sunk before the
boats got to them.
Captain Munroe, of tho steamer City of
Rome, says that the French fishing barquo
was at anchor, and owing to tho dense fog
prevailing at the time, could not be seen by
the lookout on board the City of Rome. The
steamer's life-boats, which were quickly
lowered, could only rescue two of the
twenty-four persons who had been aboard
the barque. Tho rest either went down
with the ill-fated craft or sank nfter strug
gling for a brief period with tho waves. Tho
steamer remaining near the spot for some
time until It became ntwnlutoly certain that
no more lives could be saved." -
The following memorial was afterwards
prepared and presented to Captain Munroo:
Wo, tho undersigned passong-erg on board
tho steamship City of Homo, bolng on a
voyaire from Liverpool to New York, while
deploring- tho aad accident which resulted In
the lamentable loss ot twenty-two Uvea, de
sire to express to you. Captain Munroe, and
tbo whole of your officers and crew, our ap
preciation of the skill and promptitude with
which everything was done that could be
done to avert tho disaster and to save life
after Its occurrence
Some of us arc old voyagers and have been
in serious collisions una we are prepared to
affirm that we never witnessed anything bo
perfect as thodlsclpllno maintained through
out thoso few trying moments, during which,
dosplto tho fog which prevailed, you brought
your ship over the exact spot whore the un
fortunate! craft had gone down; lowered
port and starboard life-boats the instant it
was possible to do so, and usod every oxer
tlon to rescue tho three or four men who
alone .were visible after the wreck went
down. Unfortunately, these efforts were
only partially auocessf ui, but the two sur
vivors are living witnesses to the gallant
conduot and good seamanship which
snatched them from a watery grave.
Tills was signed by all the adult male
passengers, cabin and Intermediate. The
barquo belonged to tho port of St Hellers,
Jersey Channel Islands.
A passenger on the City of Rome said:
There was hardly a shock felt on board
the steamer when she run down the barque.
We cut through her like pasteboard. There
was, therefore, no occasion for a panic, but
we were horror-stricken when wo learned
what hod happened. The steamer could
not bo stopped until sho had gone, I should
judge, a quarter of a mile, though she had
been running slowly on account of the dense
When she started back she ran as fast as
possible, but was stopped skillfully almost
on the spot whore tho collision occurred.
Wo could see four or fio men clinging to
floating fragments of tho barque. Tho
weather was very cold, and the sea high.
Tho passengers all leaned over the sides
and watched the life-boats disappear In the
fog. They were guided by cries for help
from the unfortunate men. One ot the life
boats soon returned with two ot the ship
wrecked men who were nearly dead from
exhaustion. Tho boat put out again, but
suddenly the only remaining member ot the
barque's crew appeared close to tho steamer,
clinging to a mattress. Ills sudden appear
ance, where all the passengers could soo
him, caused Intense excitement A life
preserver was thrown to him, but lie was
too weak to put It over his shoulder.
"I'll give 100 to any ono who will save
that man's life," exclaimed a passenger, an
Englishman. Tho fourth officer slid down
a ropo which was made fast to tho steamer's
side and succeeded In fastening a lino to the
drowning man's body. The sailors began
to haul in the ropo, but before the man had
cleared tho water tho ropo began to slip and
ho had not strength enough to hold ou to It
with his hands. In his desperation ho
caught tho rope with his teeth, and was
raised nearly half nay up tho steamer's sldo
when ho gao out mid clroppod back Into tho
water. Tho steamer remained at tho sceno
about half an hour longer and then pro
ceeded on her way. The steamer was not
damaged at all.

The summoning of the Imperial family from
Potsdam Is regarded by the press as Indicat
ing a more serious illness than the bulletins
acknowledge. The Emperor's death at such
a critical moment In European affairs would
be doubly deplorable.
It was officially announced yesterday

bad night He was very restless. Ills
physicians report his condition as much
worse, and say that the internal complica
tions from which he is suffering have become
more alarming In their symptoms. The Im

night Many point to the fact of their sud

that the Emperor's condition Is critical.
