Sunk Off Cnpn Mendocino Prolmbly Eighty Lives Lost. Kurekn, January 3. A marine disaster that may develop into one of the worst on the Pacific Coass in recent years, occurred early yes terday (Thursday) morning, when the well-known .steamer Walla Walla was run down by an un knowi. hark, believed to fly the French flag-, and sank in thirty-five minutes. As the figures stand now 33 of the passengers and 40 of the crew have yet to be accounted for, a total of 73; and 43 of the passen gers and 39 of the crew, a total of 82, arc known to have been saved. These figures give a total of 155 1 another Boer laager and twenty persons 011 board when the ill-fated I two prisoners on the Swaziland steamer came to her end The only positive knowledge of the loss of life is in the case of the boat that finally succeeded in mak ing a lauding at Trinidad light late today. This boat was swamped more than once, and each time fewer of its occupants succeeded in getting back into it when it was righted. It started with thirteen men in it and when a lauding was made but seven were left. This makes it positive that six men per ished in this case alouc. The names of those who lost their lives are unknown, with the single ex ception of a man named Bartell, who was the first to go and was last seen floating away, with no supporhbut an oar, which probably kept him afloat as long as his strength held out, and lie then sank. .

Duais uuu uiu runs weie lowered immediately, and a large majority of those on board suc ceeded in getting off 011 them. A number, however, it is believed, had their escape cut off as a result of the great hole torn in the Walla Walla, and went down with her. Several of the boats and rafts were picked up by the steamer Dispatch after they had been trying to make land for more than twenty-four hours, but the last reports from Eureka were to the effect that two boats and one raft were yet to be accounted for. If they are safe to-1 morrow should bring news of them. ; The Walla Walla, in command , gral part of the University of Chi of Captain A. I,.

United Stntcs nt Coronation. New York, Jan. 3. A special to the Sun from Washington says: The United States Government in tends to participate in the corona tion of King Edward VII in a man ner befitting the dignity and im portance of a great nation. The Administration has determined that the American Navy shall be appro priately represented, and with that end iu view more war ships arc to be added to the European naval station. Today the cruiser San Francisco was placed iu commission at Norfolk, and the intention is to send her to Europe, probably in company with the new battleship Illinois. About February 1st the protected cruiser Olympia, famous as Admiral Dewey's flagship in the battle of Manila bay, will be as signed to the North Atlantic squad ron. The cruiser Albany and the gunboat Wilmington, now iu Euro pean waters, will be the other rep resentatives of the United States Navy on that occasion. There is a probability that the Brooklyn will also participate in the naval display. She will leave the Asiatic station for home iu a few months and her itinerary may be so arranged that, coming by way of the Suez canal, she will join Crowninshield'.s flag at the naval exercises. lllg Vessels Hue. Two vessels of the American Hawaiian line are expected this week. Both are from San Franr cisco. The Hyadcs should arrive about the 1GU1 and the Hawaiian the day before. The latter vessel arrived in San Francisco on the day the last mail left the Coast. She made the trip from New York in sixty-one days and surprised her agents by appearing several days ahead of schedule time. The Hawaiian will bring about 2500 tons of freight to Honolulu and will load there and then come to Hilo to discharge and finish her cargo. An election Dispute. Auditor II. C.
