were used to keep the boat off shore and prevent
her from working further in the Band The
boat was fully lighted, and from snot?? the neo
pie on her decks appeared extremely active. The
hawsers were wound around the powerful
capstan and the steam turned on. Ropes, haw?
ser? and capstan creaked, and the huge vessel
WM slowly pulled northward, but her position
was worse than ever, and when the tide began
to ebb the St. Paul waa more InahOTe than be?
fore. Despite nil efforts the ship continued to
drift shoreward.
The wind last night was from the northward,
and ther- was little of It. Should the wind shift
nround to the eastward it will be hard on the
stranded vessai, and a northeasterly >;aie, which
ia pnsaiblo nt this time of the year. w.?uld prove
fatal to the s;. Paul.
When The Tribun- reporter left the ship the
gag was perfectly calm, and there was 10 wind
to Speak of. It was positively stated that the
St. Paul was not taking in a drop of water.
William Cramp, of the firm that built the St.
Pani, went aboard th? steamship and met the
officers of the ship r.nd the wrecking companies.
The officials of the American Line and the
:-hlef offlc-rs eosltlvely declined to talk ,.f the
mishup. The general opinion Is that the two
Atlanti,? greyhounda wen? making a burst of
rpeed to see which would ?<? to port first, when
they both ran aground This story is borna out
l.vthe- testimony of Captain James Mulligan,
of Life Saving Stall?m No. 4. who was the flrat
to get aboard the stranded vessel in a breeches
buoy on Saturday morning. He saya thit the
passengers were highly excited when he reached
tb- ship, not over the stranding, but over ?
race, and the first question put lo him by a
half-dozen passengers was: "Where is the Cam?
The story of a race was also referred
to by the" quartermaster of the Bt. Paul.
He said the Bt Paul was feeling lur way slowly
along and not going over three knots an hour
when aha atruch Ihe begeh The Campania
waa dose by. A fegr minut?e bel >re the
St. Paul strili k the ground, th? ('anu?anla, the
quartermaster said, crossed the bows of the
St. Paul. The Campania was headed ? little
west of south, and was going fSater than the
St. Paul. . . ,
The quartermaster said no pilot had been
taken on board and no pilot boat had Been
sighted. He was certain th?? Campania was In
the sand, and from her blowing.-? th tight ahe
was hard and fast for at least ten minutes.
When the St. T'aul struck and failed to back off,
the noise on board of her ceased and for ten
minutes at least the Campania could be heard
All day yesterday lighters were alongside the
St. Paul, taking off the cargo. Her consignment
of gold has not yet been removed, and It is
strictly guarded by a so.ua d of picked men. A
revenue cutter, wlthji number of Inspectora, is
near the unfortunate vessel."
The St. Paul yestt.rdav lay alm>?t due north
und south, and was gradually creeping ashore.
Those Inter? sud say sh. will get off "at the
next high tide." but old surfmen, who recall the
experiences of L'Am?rique, the Irrawaddy and
the Manitoba, all vessels of much lighter
draught, ?hak- th-ir heads at thls>. The big
liner is undoubtedly In a bad way a p ?I the opin
loiv waa freely expressed by those who profesa
to know that she will stay in her presti.; bed
for several weeks.
The work of getting the vessel off the sand Is
being don,? by the Meniti and Chapman Wreck?
ing companies, which are Working together.
Captain Merrltt. of the Merrltt Wrecking Com?
pany, and Superintendent Tucker, of the Chap?
man Company, stay..! on the St. G.??! last night.
<>ne of the wrackers said last night that the

A concerted effort will be made at high tide
this morning to pull the St. Paul out of her
-radie, and if that prove? onauccesaful then the
?Teraeyitea will have dally excitement for weeks
to come.
Fifty longshoremen from this city were put to
work on the St. Paul yesterday. They are to
sleep in the steerage. Th-y will have then

day it is hoped >h?t at bast four lighters will

THE ??.? ???? SICH ? FEAT "HAS
Those who went to Long Hrani h yesterday to
look at the St. Paul, stranded off the shore, saw a
strange thing accornpl.sh-d. A long-distance tele?
phone was put on the steamer, and thus- on board
were ?oon In communication with people in this and
other cities.
The work of stringing the wire was In charge of
W. I> Martin, the manager of the New-York and
New-Jersey Telephon.?1 Company at fxirg liranch
A connection wea-made-with the central at Lung
Hrrinch, and rhen Mtrt'.n's s,juad carrle?! the wire
to a position In front of the f?rand View Hotel
Here a pole was set up and the wire was made
fast. Then Martin and hrs men secured a surf
boat and mad- for the Bt Paul.
As the l>oet went seaward the wire was played out,
and when the steamship was reached the wire was
made taut, hanging directly from the pole on Ihe
bluff to the steamship. A regulation Instrument
was carried aboard the St. Paul, and In less than
an hour after leaving shore, Martin and bis men
bad,the stranden ship connected with the civilised
world. This is the first Instane?? in the hlstoty of
telephone eommunica'i.m that a wire has ever been
placed aboard a shipwrecked vessel.
"Fred" Rsllly is in chatte of the phone on the
ship. The telephone wire Is striteli??.] from th.? poli
on the bulkhead In front of the Qrand View Ilote!
to the crossi tees of the foremast. The wire used is
the paired safety cable. It was originally Intended
to get a submarine cable aboard the St. Paul, hut
It was found that this could not be successfully
done on account of the strong northerly current.
It was feared thai It would break the armor of the
catib- and thus render the service useless.
Mr. Martin made a survey of the vessel and the
ground to be covered, and he deckled "n the method
use! Plenty, of .?Jack wire wa.- used, so that the
shifting of the vesser? position would not affect
the telepiione connection.

when seen at bis home. No. 20 West Thlrt>-thlrd-st.,
last evening; had jUSt returned fiotn viewing th?
strandrd St. Paul. Mr. Urown said that as far as
he ?jb'uM tell the St. Paul was lying easy, and he
could see no reason why the wrecking company
should not be able to Ret her off without serious
injury. "As retards racing," Rald Mr. Hrown, "I
have only to reiterate the statement I made in yes?
terday'? papers. There was no raclas;, If a man
Urivin* a fast haras comes up behind a man driving
a slower animal, what is he to do?Stop and walk"
That was Just our position. The St l'aul had
practically an eleven hours' start of the Campania
Captain Walker tells me that he sighted the St.
Paul on Friday morning between ? So and h o'clock,
the Campania being u: that time llfteen or sixteen
miles astern. The Campania did not come up with
her until e o'clock at night. It then began to grow
foggy, and the Campania's engines aere slowed
down. The Campanif's officers saw no more of the
St. Paul until midnight, when the fojj lifted some?
what, and the American Liner was seen forging
ahead. At 1 o'clock it grew so foggy that Captain
Walker stopped the Campania's engines entirely,
and she was hove to. as it was found that she was
In only ten fathoms of water. At 5:*>, as the fog
showed no signs of lifting, an anchor was sent
down. At 3:80 In the morning, however, the fog
began to rise and the St Paul was seen aground
about two miles away. The Campania's anchor was
then raised and she came on Into port.
"it is all wrong to suppose that the Canarder ran
aground. She did not run aground, and was at no
time In dam:?, of doing so."
Mr. Brown added that there would be no profit In
seeing ''apt-iln Walker, since he had forbidden him
to talk to rejiorters al?out the mattet.
The French liner Itourgogne passed guarani (ne
at 4:20 yesterday morning and reached her pier Just
before s o'clock. First Officer A. Oiquel said that
the steamer left Havre on th.- m ruing of Bunds*

variable winds during the entire trip. La Hour

A blK robbery at No. 5 East Thtrtteth-st. was
reported yesterday. The articles taken were a
portion Of tine celebrated Schiller collection of
antiques, which were brought to this country
a few months ago to be sold. The collection waa
valued at between $400,000 and $300,000. The
tr.ievjs secured $20,000 worth, displaying consid?
erable knowledge of the articles they took.
The h(iu?e where the antiques were stored was
1 used from the Coudert estate. The collection
was In charge ut Dr. Jahn, a dealer In antiques,
who has a contract with the owner to sell them.
They occupied nearly the entire building, which
is a four-story brown-stone front, since their
arrival tliey have been inspected by many peo?
ple who are Interested in antiques.
Dr. Jahn went to Europe thtee weeks aro,
leaving in charge bla superintendent, Walter
Klein, and a man named Van Kir.kat?. Satur?
day afternoon at 4:30 ..'Lick. Mr Klein, after
securely locking the house, went out, He did
not return until nearly 1 o'clock yesterday morn,
infs. When he reached the place hi? found the
front door .?pen. He made a hurried Inspection
of the parlor, but found r.othlne missine. On the
second floor, where many of the more valuable
articles are kept, he found that several show
cases had been broken open, and the condition
of the place gave evidence that the thieves had
made a careful examination of the contenta of
the room. He also found one of the windows la
the rear open.
He thFn rufh?d Into the street Polle -man Lynn
inquired the oaus? of his alarm and was told
of the robbery. Lynn rapped f..r a.?slstance, and
a half-dozen policemen responded. They en?
tered the place with Klein. An examination was
at once made, and Klein discovered that a lot of
valuable tapestry. ancient dtanrmd-hilted
?words and dlamond-hilted daggers had bees
taken by the thlev s
The matter was reported to Captain Plckitt,
of the West Thirtleth-st. station, and he at one*
detailed all hi* available men on the case, and
reported It at Headquarters.
It Is believed that th" thieves ?aln^d access
to the building through the window that was
