STEsAMSHIP SAGINAW IN COLLISION WITH
THE HAMILTON.
Over Twenty Lives Lost--Caine Together in
a Heavy Fog, the Clyde Liner's
Stern Being Cut Off.
Norfolk. VT, May 5.--A collision
at sao t h't, cost I he I lives of twenty or
more p(eopl(+ and the sinking of the
Clyde steaiship Saginaw by the Old
Dominion Steamship Company's liner
Hamilton occurred between Winter
Quarter light ship, and Fenwiok Is
land light ship, on the Virginia
coast, at 4.40 o'clock this morning.
The Hamilton left New York yester
'day afternoon for Norfolk, and the
Saginaw passed out the Virginia
capes at 9 o'clock last. night bound
from Richmond and Norfolk for Phil
adelphia. A dense fog settled along
the cost shortly after nightfall and
both vessels were going at reduced
speed when the crash occurred.
The scene of the collision is about
thirteen or fourteen miles off the
shore and between 180 and 200 miles
south of New York or between 150
and 140 miles north of Norfolk. The
fog whistles of both vessels were dis
tinctly heard by each other for several
minutes before the collision occurred.
According to Capt Boaz, of the Hamil
ton, his ship was going about nine
miles an hour and the Saginaw about.
ten. The fog was so thick that
objects a ship's length away were
invisible, and when the two craft
hove in sight of each other, how on,
there was but a moment's interim be
fore they met.
The Saginaw veered, as (lid the
Hamilton, but they had not the time
to clear each other and the knife
like steel prow of the south-ound
vessel struck the Clyde ship on the
port quarter about 20 feet from her
stern, cutting the entire rear of the
ship away. The in-rushing water
caused the Saginaw to settle rapidly
in the stern and the impetus of the
Hamilton took her out of sight of the
crippled vessel. Engines already
reversed were put full steam to the
rear and the Hamilton circled to the
scene of the wreck, at the same time
lowering two life boats. There' was
consternation among the passengers
of the Old Dominion ship and first
thoughts were for their safety, but
so soon as it was discovered that, the
ship was practically uninjured, only
some bow plates being stove in, all
efforts were directed to the rescue
of the Saginaw's compianly.
SAoINAw HrAD SUNK.
When the saginaw was again
sighted her stern was under water
and her bow high in the air. Panic
stricken people0 rushed over her decks
and scrambled toward the bow. Life
boats wvere being lowered and into
the first fifteen colored women were
placed, according to Second Oflicer
WV. L lMorris, who wvas in command.
The boat was swamp)ed as astruck
the water and its occupants were
thrown into,- the sea. All were
drown~Jed except the second oilicer
and1( -thre colored stewrdcess, who was
(auight by Frst Ofhicer Gioslee and
held niot ii a b)oat from the H[amilto,n
reached t hem. The 'v man died
before the small boat reached the
Hamilton, more from injuries re
ceived by the impact of the collision
than b)y drowning.
SAGINAw's D)ECKs niUls''r.
In the meantime thre rush of waters
into the bow of t.he Saginawv had
caused thre dlecks to burst their fast
eningsI with a roar like the report of
b)ig guns and1( tons of freight of all
kinds soon litteredl the sen. To this
the struggling people in the water
clung and many wero rescued by the
boats from tIhe Hamilton a'id Sag

but no sign of life could he sen
among the mlas+ of floating froight.
Two bodies, one of a mam and the
other of a woman, both clad in night
dress, were observed drifting between
the bales of cot ton and cases of goods.
NEWS OF THE I)IHAHTEIR.
The first news of the disaster was
received at Old Point, where the
Hamilton stopped for a few n ats
on her way to Norfolk. She arrived
at her pier in this city about 2 o'clock
this afternoon. Her bow plates
were stove in and tons of wreckage
still clung to her. All of the dam
age was, however, above the water
line.
On board the survivors of the Sag.
inaw had been given clothing by the
passengers and seamen of the more
fortunate vessel and a collection was
taken up among them.
Capt. Tunnell could not be seen.
He was in a state room on the Ham.
ilton under care of the doctor. His
injuries are said to consist of two
broken ribs and internal disorders.
It was sometime before a definite
statement could be received from the
officials of either line regarding the
real number of people lost and saved,
and even now, after official lists have
been given out, there is great dis
crepancy between the statements of
passengers and the company's state
ment.
WIlAT CLYDE OFFICIALS SAY.
According to Clyde officials, the
names of only eighteen passengers
are known, and it is admitted by
Second Officer Morris that fifteen
colored women, all of whom are now
dead, were in the swamped life boat.
The crew of the Saginaw numbered
twenty six all told.
