Berlin, November 11.—The following 1«
the fall text of tbe statement, evidently
inspired, In the Cologne Gazette of Satur
day, as to tbe understanding reached by
the representatives of the powers In
Pekin regarding the Chinese settlement:
“Pour Parlers between the envoys In
Pekin for the purpoee of agreeing upon
the fundamentals for peace negotiations
with the Chinese plenipotentiaries pro
ceed favorably in the whole series of Im
portant points.
"An agreement has been reaohed be

the punishment of the main culprits,
mandarins and prlnoes; also regarding
the witnessing of the execution -jf suoh
punishments by representatives of tbe
powers; also regarding the prlnolple of
paying damages to the several govern

private persons and mission);also regard
ing the permanent stationing of suffiioent
guards for the Pekin legations; also re
garding the razing of the Taka forts;
and, bnally, regarding the malntenanoe
of secure and regular communication be
tween Pokln and the seashore.
"About a number of other demands put
forth by separ^e powers, negotiations ure
still pending.”
1MPOUXANT POINTS OMITTED.;
Washington, November 11 —If, as re
ported In tbe Cologne Gazette tbe Dowers
have reached a definite understanding In
regard to China, Its terms as staled by
that newspaper' omit several features,
which have been a source of discussion
among the diplomats. Probably
tbe most important of these Is the
proposition to abolish the oumbersome
office of tbe Tsuug LI Yamen or board of
foreign affairs and plaoe tbe duties of
unit Douy uncer me supervision ui uue
person, who shall be directly responsible
for tbe management of Its allalra. This
ohange has been urgently desired by onr
government and it Is believed to find a
hearty second among all the powers.
Officials profess an unwillingness to dis
cuss with any detail tbe existing state of
the negotiations now In progress and the
Impression prevails that If an agreement
has been reached It Is Incomplete, only
partial Nothing came from Minister
Conger today.
Minister V\ u said tonight he had no in
formation bearing on the movements of
the lnperlul family.

Yarmouth, N. S., November 11.—The
shore of this county or teD miles east and
west Is strewn with wreckage of tbe hull
and cargo of tbe steamer City of Monti
cello, which foundered Saturday morning
and nineteen bodies of victims of the dis
aster have been recovered from the sea,
whloh Is still a raging oataraot. Many
people have assembled at Rockville near
where the first boat oame ashore and
crew, who nearly all belonged to points
on this coast have arrived to Identity the
dead. The bodies are arranged In a ghast
ly row In the pnbllo ball, and Coroner
Fuller Is holding Inquests. All the bodies
are terribly battered and blood stains be
spatter the rooks and wreckage.
The llrst body was tound at daylight
tbls morning, when the zlno life boat
whlob was supposed by the survivors of
the llrst boat to have swamped was dis
covered on the shore. The tholepins were
broken.
A few yards distant were the bodies of
Mr. Kldrldge, a passenger. Second Engi
neer Poole, hlr. trlpp, traveller, fori).
MoUee's Sons, St. John, X. B.; and the
body of a seaman.
All lour had life beltB around them. At
short Intervals along the beach eleven
more bodies were found, maklDg fifteen
discovered up to noon today. They had
all evidently come asbore In the life boat
and were killed on striking the beach,
not one esoaplng
Some are severely uut and disfigured
and a profusion ot blood reddens the sand
where Ihey were left when the mountain
ous seas reoeded The remains so far
Identified In addition to the four enumer

Kenenberg* Austin Wlokens, James
Cole, John E. Whitmore.
The watches In the pockets of two of
the men stopped at 13.45 and 1 3a o’ulook
respectively.
It Is a oolncldenoe that the ship Peter
Stewart, was wreaked off tbls shore a few
years ago. In the month of Jnly and a
boat load of men came In where the Mon
tloellos boat was found Half of the
men were dead before the boat touched
the laud, and many believe the same was
true of the fate of those lu the Uontl
cello's boat.
The fury of the surf Is simply appalling
In this region. The body of U.N.Coleman,
another commercial traveller, who was
not previously known to have been on
board the Hontlcello baa been washed
ashore and Identified. He represented
Levy Bros. & Co., jewelers, Hamilton,
(Jnt , and carried samples In trunks
worth |80,lOO. One trunk has been found.
Wreckage of all kinds litters the shore,
boxes, barrles, pieces of ship’s boats and
parts of tbe snper-struoture of the
steamer.
James Bam, a merchant of Yarmouth,
who was supposed to have been on board,
Is safe, he having missed the strainer In
St John, ltupert Olive wan crossing the
bay from St. John to Yarmouth to rejoin
bis own steamer.
Chief .Steward Hopkins of steamer Yar

brother's plaoe for one trip.
Swim Johmon, was taking Kltsha
Cook 's plaoe as quai term aster and Fred
Vanenburg was substituting as oook for
his father. The absentees were oil to vote
at tbe elections and to this circumstance
they owe their own lives and tbe deaths
of tbore Oiling their positions on the
Montlcello.
This swells the known death roll to
thirty-two.

also a substitute but (or whom, tt Is not
easy to learn. No trace ot more than
three women having been on the Montl
oello can be obtained. They were placed
in the Urat boat. One o( them, Stewardess
Smith, la one o( the (our aurvlvora. She
la too ill to make a statement. Stale

bor body haa been recovered. The third
was a colored lady named Uawrenue. Her
body was seen In the breakers tnls after
noon, but oould uot be reached. Stew
ardess Smith, la the only woman saved
Some difficulty has been encountered In
figuring the total loss of life, as a num
ber of passengers joined the Montloello at
St. Jono without Urat registering at the
booking office. They bought tbelr ttokets
on board. A revised list of the members
ot tbe orew prepared at the bead offioe of
the Yarmouth Steamehlp oompany here,
shows that the officers and orew num
bered twenty-eight of whom Third Uflioer
Flemming, Wilson Cook, a deck hard
and Miss Smith, tbe stewardess, were
saved.
The total number of people who were
on board la now plaoed at thlrty-alx. The
tonr survivors are Captain A. N. Smith,
Third Uffioer Flemming, Quartermaster
Wilson, cook and Stewardess Smith. The
three men saved agree tbut the eauss of
the disaster was briefly that tbe steamer
was pounded for bourn by sea and gale,
sprang aleak and tilled, became unman*
agable, broke apart and fonndered.
The sea Is not remembered to have been
so heavy on this coast for many years.
Several more powerful steamers than
the Montloello left Halifax Saturday, and
returned to port on account of the moun
tainous seas.
The steamer Ureotan, an ooean liner,
bound for Philadelphia pursued this
oourae. .

QUAKTEKMASTKK COOK’S STORY.
Yarmouth, N, 8., November 11.—Quar
termaster Wilson Cook, one of tbe sur
vlvore was found by the Associated Press
correspondent sick and sore In bed at
tbe hotel, lie said the Montloello left St
Jobn Friday morning at 11 IS and
steamed tbrough Petite Pas sage that eve
ning about six o’clock. 'The night
promised to be fine and we expected tbe
wind to haul to the northwest. It sud
denly shifted to southwest at nine o’olook
and one hour later, tbe wind was blowing
a whole gale and the sea was rapidly ris
ing. Une sea was shipped forward, Mean
ing off the forward saloon deck and rip
ping open tbe starboard puddle box. 'Tbe
engineer reported tbe steamer had com
menced to leak. Captain ilardlng ordered
the Montloello to be put before the gale,
but she would not steer. I bed tbe wheel
all night, until 7 a. m , (Saturday, and
the captain and oblef offloer were In tbe
wheel bonee with me for thirteen hours.
During ber all night battle with tbe
storm the steamer bad come Into the
wind again. At daylight Yarmouth Cape
was risible distant lire miles. We trlel
to get tbe boat off tbe wind again but she
would not steer and laid unmanageable
and leaking badly. Tbe water extin
guished the tires and stopped tbe erglne.
Listing heavily to port, tbe Montloello
commenced to settle at eleven o clock
Saturday morning lilts buoys were fur
nished the passengers, and boats were
made ready. Tbe women were pot in the
after boat. I was In ths boat helping
them to enter. Captain Harding was
standing near viewing the proceedings
when I last saw him.
Ths starboard boat was hauled to the
port side and launched from tbe first boat
davits. Five minutes after we pulled
away, the Montloello broke In two. Tbe
forward part sank bow first and the after
part stern first. I saw the second boat fill
alongside. There were about seven In ber
and 1 tblnk tbe Montloello foundered be
fore they eat oleor. The third boat was
the zlna life boat. That waz also
launched from port davits and about
fifteen people were in ber. Tbey bod oars
out and were lying near tne Montloello.
I did no aee ber after the steamer foun
dered. We scudded for shore whloh was
reached In two hoars with one man ball

blow which caused tbe foundering of tne
Montloello Is gradually dying down and
local freight steamers are resuming their

The steamer Haltfix from Bristo l ar

Yarmouth, N. S., November 10.—The
worst murine disaster In tne long list of
steamers wreck, d among the rooks and
shoals at the entrance of the liar of
Fuudy, occurred thU morning when
the sldewheel steamer City of Montloel
lo, bound from bt. John for Yarmouth,
was overwhelmed only four miles from
her destination by mountulnons seas and
engulfed with thirty-tour of her passen
gers and crew. The trugedy resern biesjjthc
melanoholy loss of the steamer City of
Portland but differs In the one particular
that four of the Montloello b people sur
vive by a miracle to tell the story. All
last night great breakers rolled upon the
shore with a thundering roar This morn
ing the sea presented a wrathful ploture.
The sailing of tne Montloello from St.
Jhn was delayed until Friday morning
at 11 16 a. m , when tne steamer put to
sea and passed In the teelu of a heros
southwest gale Into the open buy. Capt.
Harding had expected the storm to
ubate, but the wind Increased In the af
ternoon and raised the waves to a tre
mendous height.
Progress Friday night was slow, the
steamer rolling and plunging In a fright
ful manue*, making it difficult to tire
and control the ship
The wind und sea rose higher toward
morning, and Immense combers broke
over the Montloello from end to end and
oontlu dally burled her lo water. There
was no comfort on the grower which
shook In every timber whsn tne seas
struck under tbe overhang of the cabins,
threatening to break the boat into sec
tions. It bscame evident that she could
not tloat many hours unless the sea Went
down, and the captain prepared to leave
tne steamer.
A race for life began. The Montloello
made alow progress through mountain
ous seas. The land was lu sight from 8
o clock this morning and the steamer
gradually reduced the dlit&noe. At 11
o'clock she was four miles off Chegoggln
Point, and six miles from Yarmouth.
Tbs sea was mountainous and the oap
tain ordered the (mall boat lowered to
■end tbe women ashore aa the Montloel o
threatened to founder momentarily. Z
A small boat and a large metallic life
boat were lowered. In tne Drat entered
three women, 1-Isle McDonald, Kate
Hralth, tbe stewardess, and a colored
girl; Hecond Officer Murphy, Third Offi
