Thrllllae End of a Bough Voyage
MONTOEAI Sept 2The royal mall steam
ship Vancouver OapU Lyndall of the Dominion
line which arrived In port today bad a
terrible experience while on the way across
The Vancouver sailed from Liverpool at mid
night Thursday Aug 21 with nearly COO
passengers on boar Very soon after leaving
Movillo on Friday evening she encountered a
strong hoed wind and heavy Bea which con
tinued with Increasing force till Monday
morning when the wind blew a furious gale
and the sea roiled mountains high tossing the
monster tassel about in a terrible manner
The tables In the saloon were set for breakfast
with the greatest difficulty and after they were
ready a lurch of the ship knocked the glass
china and provisions off on the floor
A similar scene was witnessed In the second
cabin Confusion prevailed everywhere Many
persons were thrown from their berths decan
ters bottles classes 0 wore upset and
dashed about the staterooms Tons of water
dashed over the main deck for and alt many
passengers were drenched and 1 few were I
thrown off their feet against the bulwarks I
This state of things lasted till late on Tues
day night when the wind and 01 moderated
followsd by heavy rains all day Wednesday
and some fog Thursday opened fair but In
the afternoon rain again began to fall and a
donee fog sot In shortly afterward An Im
mense Iceberg had been seen In tho distance
seven of these monsters being visible at once
Capt Lrndall decided to lay to till the tog
lifted The vessel was now approaching the
entrance to the Strait of Dele Isle Toward
morning the vessel was again started and uro
oeeded slowly Land won sighted at the south
about t oclock and Icebergs were passed
Kxcltlnc and terrible had been the voyage thus
far but it was on Friday morning at 10 oclock
that the most dangerous and thrilling event
happened Fog had once more set In and the
speed had been reduced to 1 dead slow A
sharD lookout was kept from the boat I well
as by two officers one being the Captain on
the bridge All at once what was thought to
be a dense fog bank was observed about three
length ot the vosiil ahead but In I moment
more it was discovered to be a huge iceberg
extending to a groat distance on either side ot
the evitable course of the ship and 1 collision was In
The order was Instantly telegraphed to the
engineers to reverse the engines but too late
to diminish the speed any very noticeable e
tent though the demand was proinptfy exe
By this time tho patsencers on deck saw the
situation and the consternation was indescrib
able Women screamed and fainted and the
wildest contusion prevailed during the few
terribly anxious moments before the crash
came Chief Engineer Murphy was convening
with Chief UfDcer Walsh on the main deck aft
when the alarm sounded He turned quickly
looked over tho railing and seeing the threat
ening calamity rushed into the engine room
and ordered the doors of the watertight oom
partmenta tQ be closed all through Inc ship so i
that before the ship struck the ice this wise ar I
rangement was accomplished to thohorror of I
one coal heaver who was imprisoned In ono i
compartment time being considered too pro I
claus to allow him an opportunity to escape
Not more than two minutes elapsed from the
moment the order was given to reverse the en
gines before the Vancouver struck the huge
iceberg with I crash that sent a thrill of horror
to the bravest heart Notwithstanding the re
duced speed of the vessel the collision was so
emphatic as to cause those In the body I
ot the ship to think that she bad struck
on a rock and passengers stewards sailors i
it rushed on pasanlora every quarter like
rabblu out of a warren The officers stood to
their posts and cave their commands with a
promptness and firmness that did them Infi
nite credit and the bow was under examina
tion almost oa soon 8 the vessel left the Inden
tation made In the side of tbo leeberc
mlo word went forth that no serious
Injury bad been done to the ship tho excite I
ment abated and those whose lives were ao
terribly imperilled a few moments before again
breathed freely Cant Lyndall oars this was
one of the largest iseberes be bad ever met
with Estimates of Its length vary from a
wih mlo to 1 mile and a half It towered high
above the main deck of the vessel As it lay
directly across the course of the ship it was
Impossible to turn OOlrO tho space interven
lug so as to weaken the forue of the collision
Great quantities of Ice fell from the berg from
the force of tho crash dashing the spray in
every direction Hail the speed of the vessel
been even ten miles an hour she must cer
tainly have been broken up and would possi
bly have sunk in I few minutes The officers
say they have never neon a rougher voyage
than the Vancouver bad on this passage

avoid a strike at all hazards Theiorder is not
able to defend you financially and organized
labor generally cannot aid you that it would
be the height of fhllyto fall In the trap set by

by your dismissal for they no Count expected
that there would be a strike toihave you rein
stated Caution your man to continue as be
fore make no noise no stir or show of
strength and It possible act on the followIng
suggestion You have In the border a number
of young men who would just aslieve take
Horace droolers advice and go West as not l
poleot a number of these who would be willing
to taco poaltlons elsewhere have them corre
spond with our brothers and sitters in the
West and secure positions there than tare
them so ono broiie to their superintendent and
ask for higher wages snorter hours better
conditions or In fact anything that mar be
required by the employees ef the road Their
