dispatch from Rotterdam.
Captain Uordoa't Statement.
Captain Gordon, of the Crathie, said:
"After the collision wo returned to the
spot where It occurred, or near as we
could make out, but we were unable to
see any signs of the steamer, which we
thought had proceeded on her voyage.
We followed after her for some time, but
lost all sight of her. We waited for two
hours and then proceeded to Maasluis. We
reached there yesterday and came here
today for repairs which will take five
weeks." The second officer of the Crathie
corroborated the captain and added: "Im
mediately after the collision the other
vessel showed blue and red lights. We
returned the same sUrnals understanding

STORY OF UNSPEAKABLE HORROR.
Another Aeeoant of the Disaster That
Seat SIS Bonis to Eternity.
Lowestoft, Feb. L Tho story of the
sinking of the Elbe as brought out by
latest reports Is one of ineffable horror.
The vessel was stricken as if by an unseen
hand, and within twenty minutes only a
few broken spars, fragments of the bul
warks and but a boat load of half-frozen
paesrngcrs remained upon the surface of
the waters to show where the noble
ship, its 175 saloon and steerage passen
gers and its crew of 149 men had sailed
proudly and happily. Tho sea was run
ning high at the time and the night was
bitterly cold and so dark that nothing
could be distinguished a few yards dis
tant from the vessel's side. The greater
numbor of passengers and crew perished
like rats in a trap.
The stories told by Chief Engineer Gues
scll, and one or two surviving passengers,
who were first on deck after the collision,
do tout differ in important particulars.
The Elbe had left Breiuerhavcn at V
o'clock on Tuesday morning, bound on a
southeasterly course through the North
Bca for Southampton, England. At
about 6:id0 she had reached a point thirty
miles eastward cf the Point of Holland
when the forward lookout sighted the
light of a steamer over the port bow. The
oncoming vessel was already too near to
avoid collision, and every effort was made
to change the course of the Elbe sufficient
ly to minimize the force of the impact by
taking it on the bow.
But the vessel could hardly respond to
the reverse motion of its machinery before
the shadowy form which was bearing
down upon it struck it, cutting through
its sides as if they were made of paste
board, and penetrating almost to the foot
of the mizzenmast. For an instant the
doomed vessel hung upon the death-dealing
prow. Tnen the unknown vessel
backed off, leaving the gaping wound
open. The torrents poured into the hold
of the Elbe with the fury of a cataract, ef
fectually shutting off the escape of nil
those p;iKscngcrs who were on the exposed
side of the tessel, and settling first in the
stern. Tho fires were immediately
quenched, and the great shivering mass
of wo xl and iron lay helpless.
The shock of in:)-x was not great.
The prow of the colliding vessel had cut
Its way through tho iron-sheathed side of
the Elbe as if it afforded no resistance.
Scarcely any of tho passencers realized
that an accident of moment had occurred
until the alarm gong was sounded. Then
some of those who h ad been aroused by
the slight shock of the collision came on
deck. The scene was one of wildest con
fusion, which was augmented momenta
rily as the terrified passengers and crew
realized the horrible doom that threat
ened them. The damaged side of the ves
sel was splintered and torn, and all of
tho life-boats there had been so badly
crippled that they were useless. Still the
awe-strick.n wretches hung about the
spot gazing in blank nmsz'inent at the
wound, whicli meant th.Urown death.
The increased weight careened the sink
ing vessel and laid the gap open more
widely to the rushing waters. The men
were ordered to the other side, and then
there was a frenzied stampede toward an
imaginary safety. From the instant of
the first alarm signal rockets had been
fired, and seatuen had struggled with the
ice-bound davits of those lifo-boats which
were uninjured. The first was launched
and filled with women and children. It
had scarcely cleared the side of the vessel
before it was swamped by the mnd strug
gles of frighten-d wretches within and
without it. Then two more were launched
and sent hurriedly away from the sinking
ship, each containing nine or ten passen
gers besides the members of the crew who
were in charge.
Then the cry went down the vessel,
"There are no more boats." If Us sound
froze the blood In each heart that realized
its significance, tho agony of despair was
not of any long duration. An instant la
ter the prow rose slowly, then paused and
trembled, and the Elbe plunged stern fore
most into theStygiun abyss, currying with
it all who had come o:i board a few hours
before at Bremerhaven. with life's bright
est hopes and anticipations, save tho nine
teen who escaped by tho single boat, and
were Inter picked up by the fishing smack

Chicago, Fob. L One of the defendants
In the Dobs case was Moses Avene, and
his attorney has asked every witness if he

throw the furniture out of the window.
Policeman Smith tried to send In an
alarm from the box near the scene of the
fire, but the box could not bo opened.
When the lire engines arrived, however,
flames were bursting out of the doors and
windows. The mothor, in the meantime,

roof in order to get the bodies out.

CEXTBALIA, Ills., Feb. 1. The Mc
Clelland pond mystery fell flit again.
The revival of the caso was brought about
by Mrs. Tabor, a member of the Mount
Vernon branch of the Salvation Army,
telling a friend 6he knew who assisted in
the killing of the two McClclIands whose
remains were supposed to have been
found in a pond near this city over a year
ago. This word got to the grand jury
and they sent for the woman, who testi
fied that a former husband of hers, now a
resident of Belleville, was the guilty
man. The man, Wesley Tabor, was
brought to S.ilum on a bench warrant
and taken before tho grand jury, where
he denied knowing anything of the case,
claiming ho was a resident of Springfield
at that time, and asserted it was a case of
ppito work on the part of the woman.
This will probably end the case, as the
grand juries have now failed to get any
evidence to warrant the finding of an In
