Norwegian Vessel Founders
700 Miles From Islands;
Wireless Brings News.
A RESCUE ship was : despatched
from Honolulu last night to at
tempt to find the second boat load
of shipwrecked sailors from the Nor
wegian steamer Thor which foundered
early this week about 700 miles north
and 40 miles west from these islands.
Another small boat of the schooner
has already been rescued by an un
known steamer, which wired the na
val authorities last night asking that
steps be takpn to rescue the balance
of the crew. .
Due to the censorship the name of
the vessel sent to search the north
ern Pacific for the missing Thor crew
cannot be given, but it is a govern
ment patrol boat which was secured
by Raymer Sharp, acting collector o
customs, after he had ascertained It
was impossible to, get a vessel from
the Inter-Island or the Oahu Shipping
Co. The censorship also probably ac
counts for the name of the vessel o
which picked up 15 men of the
shipwrecked crew not being given
in the wireless telling of the founder
ing of the Norwegian vessel.
Fifteen members of the .Thor crew
were rescued yesterday, according to
a wireless which was received last
night by the acting collector. "When
these men were found they had trav
eled 180 ; mi?-s In a southerly direc
tion from the wreck toward Hono
ulu. - .: '
..Maritime' records show that the
Thor was last reported as having ar
rived at San Francisco on October IS
from a voyage to Manila and Hong
kong. This fairly well established the
belief that sne was -bound for'the
Orient again when she foundered.
The Thor's position . at the time of
he wreck, is just north of the trade
belt, and in the course of variable
winds. She was too far south to have
been following the' great circle route
In the crew of 15 men rescued
there was included the captain, two
mates, the engineer, steward and the
purser. r :;
The 1917 shipping" guide compiled
in July of 1916 gives Capt. O. Hansen
as master of the vessel. The steamer
was owned by the Wilhelmsens com
pany of Norway. .Tier gross tonnage
