He has a crew of seven men busy and expects to ship right along. "Mike Maher is busy on a group of five claims. He told me recently that things'ivere looking good to him and that he would have ore to ship most any time now. Several other groups are also being worked about Carter and there will be a big lot of ore leav ing there every day before long to be shipped. "M. Casey is certainly a busy man these days running a stage line from Carter to Iron Mountain. He makes a stop for lunch at Superior.

SURYIVORS RELATE HOW ROSECRANS MET END (Continued From Page One) the man at the wheel, according to Peters, mistook the north headlight for the light of the lightship, which is an. chored off the Columbia, and, gauging his position by the wrong light, steered the vessel off her course, the disaster resulting. The backbone of the Rose cmans was broken and "there was noth ing to do but wait," according to Peters. Efforts to launch the lifeboats were futile. The wind and waves broke them from the lashings before any of the crew could man them. The 36 men on board waited bravely for the death which appeared certain. Cap tain Johnson stood at his post in the pilot-house, directing the men while himself suffering from a broken leg. Peters had just talked with his com. manding officer when a big wave washed over the ship,, carrying him overboard. He secured a plank and rode it for five hours. Finally he drifted ashore and crawling on his hands and knees, reached the beach, where he was taken care of by watch ers and carried to Mr. Marks' rest dence. Lifesaver's Story. Peter Kruls, the injured lifesaver, who was a member of the crew of the Fort Canby lifeboat which turned tur. tie on the very brim of the wreck, Is a sturdy sailor from Holland. Propping himself on his pillows at the hospital, he told the story. "I've pulled an oar through many a mass of combers, but that little trip yester. day was the worst I have ever gone through. Though the Rosecrans struck about 5:30, it was not until Oarsman Theodore Roberrage went to the top of the hill about 8 o'clock that we dis covered the stranded vessel. "It seemed to us that she had started in over the bar on the wrong course and when the captain saw his mistake he dropped both anchors. That's what held him so far from shore. If it had not been for those anchors the ves. sel would have come in far enough so that we could have gotten our breeches rigging aboard of her and probably saved most of the crew. "The minute the vessel was reported we began preparing to launch our boat. The combers were running mountain high. Captain Riner of our statlor: gave the command and off we drove foe the line of breakers. After we had pushed through the first line of break. ers we could distinguish the three men hanging to the rigging, but try as we would, we could not break through t/.e wall of mountain-high' combers whict picked us up and tossed us back as if we had been of cork. When we had become entirely exhausted Captair Riner reluctantly gave the command and we returned to our station. A Second Attempt. "It was then about noon. Not a man of us could eat. The thought of those fellows hanging on to the rigging was too much for us. We wandered up and down the beach waiting fot the sea to calm. At last we could stand it no longer. We went in a bunch to the captain and told him we wanted to try again. "When we pulled from the statior there were in the boat seven men When we got out to the combers again we found we were no better off than before. With our little boat we were unable to make the trip and we pulled up alongside the tug Tatoosh, to get them to tow us out, but Captain Ree( would not hear of It. It was too dan gerous. Captain Riner actually got down on his knees and begged Captai.. Reed with tears in his eyes to tow isj out, but the Tatoosh's captain could not risk his ship under the conditions We were going to save those poor fel lows or drown in the attempt. "When we reached the line of surf about a mile from the boat I went into the air-tight compartment to at tend the engine. With full speed we charged the line, but we were beater back. Three times we tried this and on the third attempt a big sea picked us up and turned us end over end The door of the compartment flew open and out I went, my lungs full of engine gas and with my leg out of commis sion from a jam against the engine when the boat lunged. Sucked Down. "I was caught in the swirl of a big comber and sucked down among the rocks. I was under water several min' utes and, filled with engine gas as I was, I was about all in when I war pulled Into the boat.
