WHAT THE CLAUD1NE DID Story of Collision As Told by Captain of the Steamer. With Contlouad Calm Weather Wreck of the Carson Will Be Saved - Dredger Pump Brought Into Action Dlsmintllng.

Ho had been below but n short time when ho heard his vessel glvo ono blast of the whistle. Rushing on deck tho second mato said to him: "There Is n steam er ahead nnd I hnvo put tho wheel hnrd.astnrboard." Tho captain, look ing forward, saw the green light of i sailing vessel Immediately ahead, but too lato to prevent tho catastrophe.

The officers of tho steamer report tho roughest passage that tho Hong kong Muni has ever had from Yoko hama to Honolulu. Leaving Yokolia-, ma December 20rbad weather was en" countered from almost the first day out. It blew a continued gale, which at times amounted to nlmost a hurri cane, seas dashed over tho vehscl nnd for a time tho ship was compelled ' lay to. At 4 o'clock on the afternoon t of December 24, six Japanese uailon were forward making all fast on the bowbpiit when a huge wavo dashed completely over tho bow nnd carried ono of the men overboard, and In n few minutes ho was far astern; being n . flue swimmer, however, ho managed to keep afloat.
