notable ever accomplished on the At
The Cobequid bad pgun to break

the time the vessel struck. Quantities |
of cargo covered the ' aters as the
lifeboats ranged. alongside.
The coast steamers Westport and I
John L. Cahn were first to get boats
Into the water and they were followed I
soon by the boats of the government
steamer Lansdowne and the Rappa
hannock. As the work of rescue pro
gresed e.:e seal subsided consideras
bly and n9 mishap marred the tri

,Capt. McKinnon of the Westport

of Trinity ledge. At the time there
was a high wind and rough seas. He
took'off in three lifeboat ,loads 72
persons, including 'all the passengers,
the pursers, several deck officers and
part of the crew.
