Boston, )Dec. 22.--The fishing schoones
Mlanhassett artivced at 2:30 o'clock with
ten of the survivors of the crews of the
schooners Frank A. Palmer and Louise
B. Crary, which were in collision in Massa
chusetts bay on \Vednesday. Six men
of both vessels were drowned in the (ol
lision; the balance, 15, took to one boat.
Three subsequently went insane and
jumped overboard, two died front exposure
and two went insane after gctti;g ashore.
Both captains were saved.
The Louise IB. Crary was a five-masted.
and the Frank Palmer four-masted schoon
er. They were both coal laden, bound for
Boston. At 8 a. m. yesterday when the
Manhassett was 45 miles off Highland light
the lookout sighted a small boat with men
who were making signals of distress. The
Manhlassett changed her course and bore
down on the craft, which proved to be the
boat which had been launched from the
Crary. Only to of the men on board were
alive and they were almost helpless as a
result of their exposure to the rigorous
weather. Saturday night one man be
came crazed by his sufferings and shouting
at the top of his voice that the police were
after him he jumped overboard and dis
appeared. Four other men of the little
boat's company died from exhaustion and
exposure.
All of the survivors were seriously frost
bitten.
TOO WEAK TO BE TAKEN
FROM MANHASSETT'S DECK
The Manhassett came into the harbor
early this morning showing signals for as
sistance atnd by the time she arrived at a
wharf ambulances were ready to transfer
the sailors to a hospital. Only six men
could be removed. The other four were
in such condition that it was deemed imn
possible that they could survive being
taken from the vessel.
Two of the men on the Manhassett are
Capt. W. H. Potter of the Crary anti Cap
tain Rawling of the Palmer.
The other two men are sailors, both of
whomll are raving maniacs. The men taken
to the hospital were not only in a critical
condition physically, but they were in
such a mental plight that nothing could
be learned from them as to their expe
rience. l.ittle by little, however, the crew
of the Manhas~ctt had learned something
of the hardships of the wrecked men. It
appears that the collision occurred at 7:3o
last Wednesday night off Cape Ann. The
night was clear, but a stiff gale was blow
ing and the sea was running high. The
lmembers of the Palmer's crew claimed
that the Crary was on the wrong tack
and, in attempting to cross the Palmer's
bow, hit her on the bow, cutting her nose
square off and entangling both vessels in
the wreck. The vessels began to fill and
sank in a few ntinut:s.
'INTO A SMALL BOAT
THEY HAD TO TUMBLE
The Palmer's men managed to lower a
boat. There was no time to procure pro
visions or additional clothing.
As the men cleared the wreck they saw
the Crary's men in the same plight and
made room for as many as could reach
the boat. Fifteen souls were in the small
craft when it finally pulled away, both
captains being among those who thus es
caped. A short time after the boat left
both schooners went down. Six men per
ished when the vessels sank. For the sur
vivors a battle which lasted three days
and four nights had begun. One-third of
the number succumbed in the light, and
of those who finally reached short none
was able to realize what he had es
caped.
The Louise B. Crary was a compara
tively new vessel. She was built at Bath,
Me., in 1900, and was one of the finest
five-masters on the coast. Her cargo con
sisted of 3,702 tons of bituminous coal
consigned to this port. The vessel was
only partially insured, but her cargo was
fully covered.
The Frank A. Palmer was the largest
four-masted schooner ever constructed.
She was built at Bath in 1887 and was
sold to J. S. Winslow & Co. of Portland,
Me. She sailed from Newport News on
December 4 with 4,700 tons of coal for
Boston.
PYRAMIDS OF MAIL IN
WHICH ARE HIDDEN AWAY
New York, Dec. 22.-At the general
postoffice and the foreign branch a double
force of men worked all day Sunday and
Sunday night, and it was said that the
office would be turned over to the day
force this morning, with all work finished
up to the hour.
Considering the fact that in addition to
the heavy Christmas mail more than 6,ooo
bags of foreign mail had arrived since
Saturday evening, this was looked upon as
an unusual and probably unequalled 24
hours' work in the history of the post
office.
This congestion was caused by the be
lated steamers. The Cymric arrived last
Saturday afternoon with 2,600 bags of mail
on board. This did not reach the foreign
branch until early Sunday morning. Then
came the Savoie with 344 sacks; the
Kaiser Wilhelm der Grosse, with 660, and
the Etruria with ,8o05. These vessels
Came up to their respective piers during
the day and by to o'clock over half the
nmail had been worked and the worst of
the unusual rush had been met and con.
Iucred.
