the Tacific mail steamer C'itj of I'ara. 'I o a
reirter Captiln Nordefeldt told the follow
ing story He arrived at Colon on November
M. with a cargo of about 400 tons of coal.
Wehad, vvlththe aid of a lighter, discharged
about forty tons in the aftenioon of Decem
ber -J. when the vv hid began to blow f romthn

In and eoui'ielled the lighter to leave the

wind at three o'clock hid shituil to nortli
vvest and rain fell in torrents. The sea !
came angrier and angrier every moment.
Finding tLat the ship was l-giiiniii to drift
we threw out a second anchor This did
not hold us so at .seven o'clock we let go
our third anchor. We pud out all the
chain we dared, but as there was a vessel
loideil with explosives lving at anchor just
at our stem we had to be mighty careful.
At ten o'clock the sea broke over the ship.
Mountains of water tumbled over us. and
for a time it didn't look as though we
v.onld keep afloat till uioining When dav
Iight came I climtied up into the rigging
and looked alKiut. The sea was scattered
with wrecks; si vessels vveie going to
pieces on the reefs. Just liejond the bvr 1
svw a vessel bottom upward, with a uumber
of men clinging to it for dear life. Con
cluding that we were going to sink with our
cargo, we put up signals of distress. In
tlie afternoon we oliserved an American
three masted schooner drifting directly
toward our ship. !eelii that a collision win
inevitable, we set sail and run the ship
ashore. We struck a reef and cut tin)
ringing overhead. The American schooner
Vetenn drifted against our shiji and part of
her rigging fell over upon our decks. I sent
one of our sailors ashore nith a lute. A
crowd there receivisl him. We then took
our long boits and went ashore. Here wo
found Captain I'lerson. of tlie :wedish bark
Iieiieral Nicholas, and Kignoe Ovholm. of
the stranded Norwegian b irk Douglass Cas

linking an attempt to save the lives of the
crew of the British birk I.vington. 'Ihey
were unsuccessful at that time, but the net

captain's wife, child, and three sailors.
Twentv-tvvo vessels and sixty lives weiclost

Cnicsno, December JO. Judge Gresham
rendered a division in the United States
Circuit Court in what is known as tlie Wolf
Lake cases, w hlch have been in litigation
for a utinitier of vears. Tlie cases included
three suits of ouster brought against United
btates Treasurer Jordan, tlie samo
ajrauist Cleveland, and IL II. Mitchell
ngaint Smile. In lsjs Mrs. Hardin's
father. William Holbrooke, now de
ceased, purchased three tracts of
land west of IKtle I.ake, a small basin of
water situated near tlie Indiana line, the
tract being in the northeast quarter of sec
tion I'.', and their eastern boundary lieing

a ineinder lme down along a ridge of high
laud. Between this line and the lake shore

ernment bv the defendant .Ionian, 'lhecom
piainant claimed that when the Government
deeded the land it intended that the lake

and his daughter alleged th u the reclaimed
laud between the line and Hvdc Lake, now
oecujiied by a man named Cleveland, vvas

against her on the ground that it was im
probable that the government in selling
futli a small piece as two and a half acies
also ceded away the extensive tiact to the
'Hie thtrd case. Mitchell against Smale,
was decided in favor of tlie defendant
Mitchell tMitight four and one half acres in
