Reported ias Among the MIssing.
Brest, France, May 21.-Nearly 100
persons perished last night when the
Peninsular and Oriental line steamer
Egypt sank off the -Island of Ushant
after a collision with the Frenei
freight steamer Seine.
The Egypt sailed frot Lindon for
iombay F4'riday with .1.1 passengers
and a crew of 290. A roll call on
board the 'Seine after the disaster
showed hat at least 15 of the passen
gers and 80 of the crew of the Egypt

denso fog within 22 miles of the
Armen lighthouse. Tle dinner 'gong
ias about to be sounded on board the
Egypt, many of the passengers and
most of the crew were on deck. The
shock threw several persons into the
sea; others Jumped and a number went
(own with the shiO,, which sank in
20 minutes. The I'gypt was rammed
amidsilp oil the port side.
The Seine, badly damaged, reach
ed -Birest today with 29 rescued pas
sengers, more than 200 of the crew,
and the bodies of 20 (lead. The cap
tain of the Egypt is among the saved.
When the collision occurred there
was a rolling sca, some of those es

sengers and crew had to shift for
Those who Jumped into the sea and
who could swim scrambled about for
bits of wreckage to which they might

They floated about in the fog after the
'Egypt went down, caliling for help. The
sound of their voices directed mem
,bers of the crow of the Seine in small
boats 'who were patrolling the sea,
,picking up 'both living and dead.
In qiome instances the rescue crews
came upon persons clinging to bits of
debris who let go and sank Just as
aid for them was at hand. The small
boats on numerous occasions sought
vainly in the fog to locate persons lift
ing cries of distress through the fog.
Among the known missing are the doc
tor and chief engineer of the Egypt.
The Egy-pt was a vessel of 8,000 tons.
The Seine was bound for IHavre when
the distaster occurred.
Captain Le Barzic, of the Seine, in
describing the disaster, said:
"I was at ny lpost onl the iper
bridge Saturday evening at 7 o'clock,
15 miles from Armen light. The sea
was calm, with a slight swell. The
fog was very dense; was listening for
fog horns and proceeding at the slow
speed of five knots.
"In less time than it takes to tell
a great steamer emerged from the
fog. It struck my ship and tore
away the forward works and moved
oil at great soineed. I immediately or
dered our- engines reversed.
"I saw nothing further. But then
began to healr cries of horror thsat told
me of a catastophle. I went in search
of the stricken vessel in tile fog and
darkness. I found her in tbwenty min
'She lay on her port side, ready
to turn over. Watelr was pouring into
a long, deep tear in 11er -side tplates.
Cries and~ wails of despair were to
be heard comning from the steamer.
Passengers were seen running ab~out
on the decks, as tihe steamer was about
to go under.
"I saw a muan throw himself into the
sea with two little children in Is
arms. Tile ship-wrecked lpeople in
the sea clung to floating debris. I
had all my lifeboats lored. It was
particullarly perilous work, for we
were on the main lpath of vessels go

channel. I stayed at thle scene of the
wvrek until 20 minutes after 1t o'clook
