WHALEHOAT TO RESCUE.
Battleship Mabu's Launch Hits
Heef in Newport Harbor.
(By Telegraph to The Tribune. 1
New London, Conn., Aug. 5. — When the <%iiser
Denver. Captain Colwell, arrived here from New
port at noon to-day she brought news of the
rescue of a party aboard the battleship Maine's
launch, which was stranded on a ledge in New
port Harbor last night. A boxing exhibition at
the training station ended about 10 o'clock, and
the Alabama's representative, who had a 20
round bout with a Kearsaxge man for the cham
pionship of the fleet, was victorious. Attending
the bout were officers from various warships in
port, among them several from the battleships
Maine and Missouri, who started to return to
their respective ships in one of the Maine's
steam launches. Two women, relatives of some
of the officers, were also aboard the launch,
bound for Jamestown wharf.
The launch left the training station about
10:15 o'clock m a heavy fog, and had reached a
point opposite the lighthouse, where she ran upon
a ledge, and efforts of the crew to dislodge her
were futile. The tide was fast receding, -and
when it was found the launch was fast on the
rocks the regulation distress signal, five blasts
of the whistle, was sounded^ at short intervals,
but passing launches and other steamers paid
no heed to the calls for assistance.
The occupants of the launch had about con
cluded that they would be prisoners on the reef
all night when a whaleboat from the cruiser
Denver appeared. The signals of distress had
been noticed by Captain Colwell. who was half
a mile away. In a short space of time the ship
wrecked party was transferred to the Denver's
boat and the rescuers started the return to their
ship. The fog was so dense that they rowed
in a circle, and after half an hour's steady
work they brought up against the Maine's
launch, which they had just abandoned.
A second start was made, and this time the
rescuers were aided by the Denver's search
lights. Captain Colwell having become anxious
at the whaleboafe prolonged absence. When
the Denver was reached the rescued officers and
women were transferred to one of that cruis
er's launches and taken to their respective ships
and landings.
The officers and crew of the Maine's launch
say they should have received aid long before
the 3' did. as launches passed very close to them
while they were sounding their distress signal?.
The Kentucky's launch, they say, siftamed with
in a few foet of them and totally ignored their
repeated danger calls.
SAILORS FIGHT ON SHIP.
Seaman on Battleship Alabama Wins
Fleet Championship.
{By Telegraph to The Tribune.
Newport, R. 1.. Aug. .". — Seaman Tag-, of the
Battleship Alabama, and Seaman Condon, of the

ceived the decision at the end of a fast bout.
At one time It was necessary to change the po
sition of the ring, on account of the wet floor.

Krrprr of the fight, and lieutenants Rawllns
and Pauline- were the referees. After the fight

SUNDAY SHUT-DOWX AT ELLIS ISLAXD.
TWEXTY-EJVE HUNDRED IMMIGRANTS FORCED TO
SLEEP A HOARD SHIP ,:j,nn TO BE II AX DEED TO-DAY.
In compliance with a recent ruling of the De
partment of Commerce and Labor. Ellis Island
was shut down all day yesterday, and will be so
on all Sundays hereafter for the next three
months, much to the discomfiture of the thou
sands of immigrants coming in on the big ships
that dock Sundays. Last night nearly 2.!KX>
steerage passengers slept between decks on four
big liners which reached their piers and dis
charged the flrst and second class passengers.
Three of these, the Cunarder Umbria. the Cel
tic, of the White Star Line, and the Columbia,
of the Anchor Line, docked before noon. L&
Gascogne, of the French line, got to her dock
last night. At midnight the Grosser Kurfuerst.
from Cherbourg; the Bluecher. from Dover and
Boulogne, and the Nieuw Amsterdam, of the
Holland-America Line, were in port. The num
ber of ateerage passengers on these will bring
the total to be handled this morning close up to
six thousand.
This will make a busy day on Ellis Island.
Harry Balfe, ;he head of the commissary de
partment, has made elaborate preparations for
giving breakfast to over twenty-five hundred
hungry aliens. Never before in the history of
Ellis Island have so many prospective citizens
sat down to a breakfast at one time. In addi

about fly» hundred luncheon boxes prepared for

Grounds at Night.
[By T»!e*raph to Th? Tribune.]
Oyster Bay, Aug. s.— Karl Cook, who said he
was a lawyer, of Washington, forty years old,
was arrested shortly after midnight this morn-
Ing at Sagamore Hill by President Roosevelt's
Secret Service guards.
When arraigned before Squire Franklin this
morning Cook said he had walked to Oyster
Bay from Brooklyn and that he came here to
escape service at court. When he was asked
what kind of a crurt proceeding he was at
tempting to avoid. Cook gravely replied that
It was an inquiry into his own sanity.
"But I received the summons by mail, so I
was not bound to obey it." he hastened to ex
plain.
Cook was not able to tell why he wished to
see the President, nor were the Secret Service
guards certain that he knew that he was tres
passing on Mr. Roosevelt's place. Justice Frank
lin fined him $5. and in default of payment com
mitted him to the county jail at Mlneola for
five days.
President and Mrs. Foosevelt attended morn
ing service to-day at Christ Episcopal Church.
Washington, Aug. 5. — Nothing is known here
of Karl Cook, arrested at Oyster Bay to-day by
secret service officers.

gested taking their pictures. . When the elder
brother stood up In the boat to pose for the
camera the small craft overturned and the occu
pants were thrown Into the water.
Neither could swim, and they floundered about
in the water until Nichols realized their plight,
and. jumping Into the water, reached them, and
after a hard struggle got them into the boat,
which was about half fliied with water. Nichols,
much weakened by his task, struck off for shore
when he saw more help coming, but as he let go
the boat it overturned again, throwing the un
conscious brothers Into the lake. They sank to

saw that his way was blocked by the ropes
stretched through the plaza to regulate traffic.
He quickly stopped the machine and tried to
back, but before he could do so the trolley
crashed into it. The auto was thrown ahead
for Borne distance, but remained right side up.
When the car again smashed into the machine
it was pushed along and wrecked, the wheels
.being torn off.

Tin Sir to Wrecked Near Cape Pah-*
. —Captain Commits Suicide. ::
■ Cartagena. Aug. s.— Three hundred emigrants
were drowned last evening of? Cape Palos. " The
Italian steamship Sirio, from Genoa for Cadiz.
Montevideo 'and Buenos Ay res, with about eight
hundred persons on board, was wrecked off Hor
migas Island. Most of those lost were Italians and
Spaniards. , The captain of the steamer com
mitted suicide. . He attributed the wreck to his
own imprudence. The Bishop of Sao Pablo,
Brazil, was drowned while blessing the passen
gers of the Sirio. The Archbishop of Sao Pedro
was. saved.
'. Th< remainder of the passengers and the of
ficers ac i crc^vgoL away in the ship's boats, or

cue were drowned by the overturning of a boat
Those rescued from the vessel are now at Cape
Palos in a pitiable condition, being without food
or clothing.
The Sirio. which was owned by the Naviga
zione Italia, of Genoa, struck a rocky reef
known as Bajos Hormigas and sank soon after,
stern first. Hormigas Island lies about two and
a half miles to the eastward of Cape Palos.
Before he committed suicide the captain said
the steamer had 645 passengers on board and,
that her crew numbered 127 men. The Sirio had
570 passengers when she left Genoa, but addi~
tional Spanish passengers were taken on board
at Barcelona, where the vessel touched a few
hours before she struck.
The disaster occurred at 5 o'clock yesterday
afternoon. The steamer was threading a diffi
cult passage through the Hormigas group, where
the Bajos Hormigas Reef is a continual menace
to navigation. The vessel began to settle rap
idly as soon as she struck, and a terrible scene
of confusion and panic followed. The fishermen
along the coast sought to render every assist
ance in their power, and sent out boats which
brought many survivors ashore. Host of the
officers and crew of the Sirio are among the
saved.
The survivors are camping in the main square
of the town at Cape Paloa. Here there are har
rowing scenes, as the stricken families anxiously
seek members among the rescued. A mother
who lost her three children went insane. The
doctor of the Sirio gave up hi 3 wife and child as
lost, but they were finally brought in by one of
the rescuing boats. One of the boat 3 sent out
by the fishermen brought in twenty-four pas
sengers.
The condition of the survivors is deplorable.
They have lost everything, and are without
money, f«»d or clothing. The maritime authori
ties of Cartagena have sent a tug to the scene
carrying relief supplies. The buildings of a
circus and the poorhouse are being u?ed as
temporary quarter*. .
The latest reports from the cape say that three
beats have just brought in a number of rescued.
From the broken narratives or" the survivors
it would appear that it was the Intention of
the captain of the Sirio. after leaving Barcelona,
to call at Cadiz before proceeding to Brazil. The
■captain, in order to shorten the route, decided to
pass as close ■as possible to the rocky le-Iges
surrounding the Horm!gas Islands. While run
ning at full speed the Sirio crashed upon the
rocks. A few minutes later the vessel began to
sink by the .tern. The passengers rushed for
ward, fighting for place in the bow of the beat.
Many foil and were trampled to tier.th. Dozens
of men and women threw themselves Into the
sea. A yourg mother, who was carrying her
baby, was advised to abandon the child and try
to save herself. This she refused to do. Both
were afterward rescued.
The captain and officers of the Sirio endeav
ored in vain to restore a semblance of order and
roatlanrd en atfond peer.
