All hops for the Portland was given up when
. despatch came horo this morning from North
Truro, on Cane Cod, tolling that wreckage
and bodies from the missing ship had
been washed ashore near Highland Light.
It was first believed that the Portland
had foundered on tho Truro shoal, but
to-night It 6ecms certain that sho was lost In
the open sea. This Is almost conclusively
shown by the reports of Capt. Clark of the rev
enue cutter Dallas and th officers and crow
of too Boston and Provlncotown Company's
itesmer Longfellow, both of which arrived here
this evening direct from Provlncotown.

rortland. notapleceof thehull or anyof the ves
sel's heavier parts was found, all of which shows
thst such wreckage as driftexl ashore must
have become detached while the steamer was
rolng down. Capt, Clark said that he left
Boston on Monday night, proceeding nl onco
toProvlncetown.where the cutter hove to over
night. Early this morning lie got up steam and
ent around on tho outaldo of tho cape, In
'he direction of Highland Light. Half
y between the light and Peaked Hill bars
e located considerable wreckage, but did
jot see any bodies. His men made as care
Jul a search as the high seas would permit,
t found no evidence of either hull Itself or
oy part of the steamer's bottom. After three
jr four hours he returned to Proviucetown and
ound that ten bodies, eight men and two

shred of white cloth, resembling part ot a
night dress, was clinging to tho neck, but oth
orwlso tho body was eotlroly nudo, and was
frozen stiff. Mr. Macklntlro said tbat the
Portland undoubtedly foundored In tho opon

on board perished.

If sho had broken down, tho wind would
havo sent her nslioro Inside rather than

of tho galo and waves enconntored. the steam
er probably wont all to pleoos In. a moment,
othorwlso the Cnptaln would most certainly
havo made an attempt to boach hor. Under
theso clrcutnstancos Mr. Maoklntlro thought
it extremely doubtful that any vestige ot tho
stoamor othor than the bits which havo al
ready drlttod ashoro would ever bo seen.
A report from tho French cable station, on
tho southern side of the Cape, states tbat bod les
came ashore thero which, with those at Prov
lncotown. mako a total of twenty-eight recov
ered. Eight are known. Mora havo reached
the shore at othor points, making thirty-four.
II the vessel foundered, as is bellovedmany ot
tho drowned, notably those In the staterooms,
will probably never be recovorod.
It was learned at tho company's office
after midnight that one ot tho bodies
found nt Nausot Harbor had been Iden
tified as that of the Hon. E. Dudley
Freeman ot Portland. On the body of a
woman found thoro was a watch marked J. E.
O.. a diamond ring and a diamond breastpin.
On tho hand ot one young woman washod
nhoro was a plain gold band ring.
Tho body ot anothor young woman Is at
tho Nauset llfo station. So far eighteen bodies
are accounted for and eighteen moro are re
ported. Two ot tho latter are just reported
from Provlncetown. At Cahoon'a Hollow the
remains of a colored man have been found.
At the life-saving station at Nauset there Is
tho body ot a man, supposed to havo been a
deckhand, having on a sweater marked " Port
land." Tho steering whael of tho steamer has
come ashore at Orleans, Mass.
Pobtlajto. Me.. Nor. 20.-Not till this
afternoon did the Portland Steamship Com
pany's officers abandon hope ot tho
safety ot the steamer Portland, whose
return had been anxiously awaited since
early Sunday morning. There was a crowd In
the waiting rooms this afternoon when tho de
spatch was received from the.Boston office con
firming the rumor of the disaster off Cape Cod.
The city Is in deepest mournlug. Nearly
100 .of tho 100 passengers and mem
bers of tho crow ot the ill fated
steamer wore residents ot Portland and
its suburbs. Capt. Horace 11. Blauchard,
the master, was 67 years ot ago. a citizen of
Deerlng. Mo., who had followed the sea nearly all
his life, and for eight yoars had been first pilot
ot tho Portland. Ho was to have been appointed
permanent master ot the steamer, to fill the
vacancy caused by the recent death of Capt.
Snowman ot Boston. Capt. Blanchard leaves a
widow, two sons and one daughtor.
Upon Capt. Blanchard's shoulders General
Manager John F. Llscomb places the whole re
sponsibility ot tho disaster. Manager Llscomb
attended a funeral in Boston Sunday. Before he
left hero Saturday night he telephoned to Capt
Blanchard orders not to leave, the Boston
dock, on Mtooount of tho threatened storm.
On reaching Boston, Mr. Llscomb again
telephoned to the office, only to find
that his racaeago had been disobeyed,
Capt. Blanchard having started out with hU
steamer in the face of the gale. It had been
the company's Invariable custom not to send
out Its boats In ery rough weather.
It Is supposed that, not being able to make
nny progress against the gale. Capt. Blanchard.
after bolng several hours out. rounded the
steamer to and ran before the wind, and was
attempting to make Provlncetown harbor.
There was a marine Insurance ot 100,000 on
the steamer, placed through tho New York
ogoncy of Smith k Hicks. The cargo was cov
ered by blanket policies aggregating $80,000
In eight companies, most of them English
companies.
Among the Portland passengers was tho Hon.
E. Dudley Freeman, an attorney, member of
the Govornor's Council, member of the Repub
lican State Committee, and former State Bonn
tor. Ho leaves a family. Oren Hooper was
senior momber ot the Portland furniture
firm ot Hooper, Son A Lelghton. Thoro wcro
four Portland school icaohers In the party who
had spent Thanksgiving In Massachusetts.
The steamerManhattan of ho New York and
Portland line, which was overdue, arrived here
to-night. Sho anchored at City It land till
Sunday afternoon. Capt. Bcnnott saw no trace
ot the steamer Portland, but encountered a
great deal of wreckage along the route.
The Tortlnnd was a sldowheol steam vepsel
built at Bath. Me . In 1800. Sho was 281 feet
long, - foot bmnd and 10 feet in depth. Her
tonnage was 2J83.
The wrecked vessel, though a sldowheeler.
was stanch undhad weathered manyneevero
storm along tho upper Now England coast.
The Portland Steam Packet Company has had a
long and successful history. Tho company was
organized In 18i. and first ran two scroW
steam vessels between Portland and Boston.
Lntr tho screw boots were replaced by side
wheel boatH, Tho company has 'always had
first-class boats manned by careful and ex
perienced officers, and. although it has trans
ported hundreds of thousands of passongers,
not a passengor on Its vessels, haR boforelost

A Storm Is Travelling Vp the Coast and the
'Whole Weather Map Is Stormy.
The weather man promised to give New York
a rainstorm last night, but tho temperature
took a sudden tumble that ho had notarranged
for. and s'now fell Instead. The Washington
bureau reported that there was a severe north
easterly gale out at sea, although tho highest
velocity the wind reached on the const was
thirty-four miles In southern New Jersey. The
storm came up tho coast, and at 10 o'clock Its
effects worn felt from North Carolina to
New Jersey, and as far west as Cleve
land. O, and Pittsburg, where snow fell.
Snow fell InWashlngton nlso. The galr was
accompanied by rain at Norfolk, Va Atlantlo
City and Philadelphia. Last night's weather
map was a peculiar one, us tho pressure was
low In all parts of the country. Indicating storm
conditions from one hide of the continent to
thnothnr. On this count the baroirmter stood
at 21.:H at Atlantis City and at W.'M InKils
city.
The Weather Bureau sharps expected at 10
o'clock tlint snow would continue (o fall all
night, but they said thnt the fall would not bo
heavy, H was wet snow. They uld that it
would lio a hard night for shipping off tho
coast, but as they had dtfcplnyed iiortheatttr
sjgnnls all day they thought milling innMeis
had prepared for tho blow. Tho wind Isox
pected to get around Into tho northwest again
to-day. with cleitrlng weather.

Tho marine observer at Sandy Hook saw
dimly through his long (otoscope, far to tho
southeast, yesterday afternoon a steamship
flying signals, untranslatable in the distance
Tho pllotboat nermann Oelrtchs was bearing
down on tho steamship. Presently a yawl was
lowcrod from tho Oolrlchs. Then another
touched the water, and both pulled for tho
steamship. Thcr took several men from the
steamship and returned to the pllotboat. The
tug Scandinavian, got Into tho observer's focus
thon. and he saw the pllotboat transfer the
mon to tho tug. Later tho tug camo up to tho
city and the men went to tho office of F. V. L.
Jones at 65 South streot. They are Capt. S. B.
Hewitt, a veteran coastwise navigator, and the
orow ot the throo-masted 600-ton ccntroboard
ohoonor D. K. Baker, now a water-loggod
derelict drifting oft the Jersey coast. This Is
tho yarn ot the Baker as her skipper spins It:
"Wo sailed from Charleston on Nov. 13 With
a cargo ot lumber under hatches and on deck.
My glass began to go downcast Saturday after
noon, and I shortened sail. It was blowing a
gale from northeast at 6:30 o'clock that even
ing. We hovo to under close-rcoted mainsail
and spanker. Wo plunged In tho seas, somo ot
whloh broke over us. In a driving snowstorm
until along toward daylight Sunday. We were
then In tho neighborhood ot Asbury Park and
well off shore The buffoting ot tho seas start
ed the seams, and the old oraft began to leak
like a slevo. We trlod to lighten ship by throwing
over the dockloadof lumber, but the schooner
rolled and pitched so badly that we couldn't
do much. About 7 o'clock on Bunday morning,
when the wind was blowing with hurricane
force, wo went ovor on our beam end. Wo
dim bod. up the deok as she heeled ovor to star
board, and we olung to the port mlzzen and
main chains. Sometimes the topmasts would
dive ten or fifteen fcot under water. Then
thoy'd rise again five or six foot above the sur
face. We were kept rocking that way, fifteen or
twenty fet to starboard and back for thirty
minutes, expecting at every rock that tho
schooner would turn turtle. Finally the deck
load of lumber, which had gone like an ava
lanche down against the starboard bulwarks
and rigging, carried away the mlzzenmast
close to the dock. Then she got up ou her feet.
It was about time, for wo could not have held
on much longer. The second mate. Brown,
was hurt by lumber that was flying around ua
on the seas all the time wo were down on our
beam ends. A part of the port half ot the after
deckhouse was still standing, and wo huddled
In tho lee ot it and let the galo and sea ruge.
We knew a lumber-laden hulk would last a
long time It she was on a level keel, and so wo
waited twenty-olgnt hours to be rescued. Wo
couldn't help ourselves, as we had lost our
irawl and dingy. The main gaff topsail, which
isd been tied up, got adrift, and streamed out
Ike apennant. It napped against themastwlth
a sound like a onnnon sometimes, and made a
good signal ot distress. Just about dusk yos
terdaywe made out a steamship a good dis
tance north. Sho was the l'alka, Capt. Torn
qulst. bound from Philadelphia for Limerick.
Sho had seen our topsail flapping. When wo
sighted her we got up on tho broken after
house, and waved a big blanket to help the top
p sail out. They boro down on us, steamed
around ua twice to got a cood posi
tion, and when a few hundred yards to
windward lowered a boat. The sea was still
heavy, nnd the boat couldn't come cloeo aboard,
nnd we jumped for It. Capt. Tornqulst treated
us like princes.- We-hadn't had anything to
drink for twenty-eight hours and nothing to
?at except two cans ot preserved pumpkin we
ound floating In the cabin. We left the wreck
120 miles southeast, three-quarteratoutb. of
Sandy Hook. Wo saved nqthlng except what
we, stood In."
FISHtMO CBZW SAVED OrF CAPE COD.
Tho Metropolitan lino stoamshlp Herman
Winter, from Boston, brought here yesterday
Capt. Otto Janeen and sixteen fishermen of the
little Gloucester schooner EmmaM. Dyer, dis
masted in the turmoil of Saturday off Cape
Cod. The fisherman was on her way from the
Banks to Gloucester with a fine catch. Bhe
jumped her foremast out while hove to. She
made on effort to anchor, but the cable car
ried away, and she drifted Into tho trough,
shipping tons ot sea crests. The men got out
another anchor, and It fouled the foremast,
which was floating alongside. By paying out
lots ot chain the anchor was loosened and It
found holding-ground. The orow tried to
use the anchor as a kedge and work the
schooner Inshore. On Monday afternoon,
when thn Dyer was about six miles southeast
ot Capo Cod, floundering In the seas, the Her
man Winter, which had boen forced back Into
Boston by tho gate on Saturday night, came
along and rescued the fishermen. At II rat tho
stiuunship drifted a hawser down to the Dyer
and took her In tow, Tho hawser parted, and
so did another. Then the Winter launched a
port lifeboat In charge of First Officer Grove
and four men. The men of the schooner put
out two dorlos. In each of whloh were four
fishermen. The other eight got into the life--loat,
The stoamshlp was rolling heavily when
the lifeboat and the dorirs pulled alongside.
All the llttlo craft were smashed and upet
agulnst her towering side when sho rolled
their way, and every man was thrown Into
the aa. Adozen lines were thrown ovnrtho
steamship's side, and tho lifeboat n crow and
the fishermen were hauled altoard. Two
Srothers. Noel and John Polrior, wero nearly
rowned. Noel, tho younger brother, cannot
swim, and John was holding him up. John
caught a lino, and. after a hard struggle with
Noel, who dragged him under several times,
made the lino fast to the boy, who was lifted
aboard the Winter. Then another boat's crew
from the steamship boarded the dorcllctand.
after sprinkling kerosene around tho cabin, set c
bur afire. Capt. Jansen was tho chief owner
of the Dyer. The fishermen aro Swedes. Nova
Scotlans, Portuguese, and Gloucester meu.
CA8T AWAT ON A MCEP IK YUCATAN.
The Ward line steamship City of Washing
ton, from Mexican and Cuban ports, which got
up to her pier yesterday, had aboard Capt. It,
A. Fletcher. First Mate Martin Lee, Sooond
Mate P, A. Keeler, Donkey Engineer William
Hndlow and part ot the crew of the four-masted
American schooner Talofa. wrecked on
Cozumel Island.Yucatan, while on a voyage
from Guantanamo to Tampa, Second Mnto
Keeler told tho Talota's story yesterday. She
left Guantanamo on Oot. 28. From that time
until she struck on a reefoff tho Island her peo
ple never saw the sun, When they wero thlrtr
bIx hours out a shark bit the rotator off the
patent log. They hovo tp In a heavy northerly
gale on the morning of Nov. 2 with a very dim
Idea of their position. They drifted to looward
and finally brought up broadside on. on n reef
nbout uiree?q,unrtor of a jolle from shore on
thofastcoauottheisUnd. The seas mado a
clear breach owr the vessel, smashing the
small bout and bringing down spars Tho
crow sought refuge In the cabin from the fall
ing wreckage. At. midnight tho cabin was
Hooded and they wore driven to thn depk
again. All the mists had gone, ovor except the
fore. Tho men lashed themselves to the port
inmrter rail and hung by the lashings over the
side to escape the wreckage adrift on the deck.
In the afternoon thn Captain and the second
mate decided to make nn effort to get ashore.
They got what the mate calls a reeling plan k."
which was used by the men to stnnd on while
reetjiig the big sails, and etarted on It through
the breakers. Thelrclothes were torn off by
the jagged edges of the reefs and they were al
most naked when they reached the beach.
Thn wind was still from tho north nnd
wus ory chilly. The Cnptaln Jell on thn
sand exhausted. .The mate found an old
linrroJ. the head ot which he broke In, and,
after hollowing out a place In the sand, he put
tho Captain in the hollow and clapped the bar
rel over nlm to shelter him from the norther.
Tho rest of tho crew stuck to the shlpall night,
At) except two came ashore nt daylight. All
that was left of the engineers clothing was n
pair of suBpendors, which he had tied mound
his waint. In the night Charles B. Callender. a
cnbln boy of Baltimore, was hnopt ocrloard
mill loht Henty Kelaen. ablo soiiutan. nlso of
Baltimore, died while trying to uiuku his way
through the breakers.
That morning the second mnto n ulked out to

Cologne) Gazette Belates a Series of Circum
stances Winch Saved TJs Trouble,
flpeciat CabU BaptlcK (a Tac Bos.
Bkm.in. Nov. 20. The Cologne Gatette de
votes a long article to the conclusion of the
Spanish-American Peace Conference. It says,
with a side thrust at "the Insatiable greed of
the Americans." that mutual envy among the
great powers of Europe was the reason why
the United States did not encounter opposition
to their extensive and unjust demands, despite
the fact that such opposition would havo opened
a prospect ot vast benefit to thn powers. It
adds that England's point ot view, that ehe
would rather see the Philippines in the hands
ot the United States than In those of any other
power, appears easy of explanation. Inasmuch
as the addition of America to the controlling
elements Jn the fir East would increaso the
supremacy of the Anglo-Saxon race In that
part of the world.
Considering also that Interference by any
European power In the Philippine question
would Incur the bitterest onmlty ot tho United
States, and that the United States could crush
tho outlet of the Interfering power's products
through commercial restrictions and imposi
tion, the complote silence ot European diplom
acy In the peace negotiations need not cause
surprise. It was owing to the concurrence of
these circumstances that Spain was crushed.
As regards the Cuban debt, the Oatelte says
that Spain must bend her neck to the American
yoke.
