Heavy weathor Is pro Tilling In the vicinity of the Hobrldes. and tho rsistDgers n the lighthouse nro threatened with long Imprisonment, as It will bo Impossi ble for vessels to approach tho Islet until tho wind &nd sea abate. The Labrador, which left Halifax on Feb. 20. hid s good passage until Feb. 20, when a heavy fog set In. making It Impossible to take tho hip's bearings for three days. Ab sha4 noared the Hebrides Islands the fog became denser. tnd Bkerryvore Light was mistaken. It Is sup posed, for Innlstrnhull. Soundings of from forty to fifty fathoms were cot just beforo the hip struck Most of tho passengers wore In bed or dress ing when the alarm was given that tho ship hid run upon a rock. The vessol struok hard ind stuck fast nmldshlps. Tho women and children on board wero eroatly excltod, but the crew, following the example of Capt. Ers klne, showed the utmost coolness. Tho boats were In excellent ordor. and all of them, six lifeboats and two small boats, were utilized. The passengers and crew lost nil tholr belong ing, as everything had to bo sacrificed to navo their lives The Captain made strong efforts to take off the malls, but the breaking up of the ship was Imminent and tho attempt had to he abandoned. The women and children were put Into the first boat In charge of the fourth officer, and the other passengers Into the next boat, tn charge of the second officer. When those boats were swung clear the remaining members of the crew followed tn tho other boats, all taking the direction of Skerryvore Lighthouse. The leain the meantime had become yellow with the wheat which was pouring from the hold of the broken ship. The boats had been at sea about three and a half hours whon tho steamer Viking, bound for Norway, hove In sight, and at once took tho raesengers and crew of tho Labrador on board. The transfer of the mon. women aud children from tho boats to the ship was vory difficult, owing to the heavy swoll and high waves, many of which dashod over tho top of the Viking's funnel. As tho Viking lost eight of her the Labrador was fast brcaklnc up and Inking by the stern. Capt. Hunland. com mander of the Viking, in highly praised by ths passengers and crow of the Labrador for his i kill and coolness in tho difficult work of res cuing the occupants of the Labrador's boats, not one of whom was lost. The hotels at Tobermory ara filled with the rescued ones, ind those unable to find rooms there are I lodged In the houses of fishermen. One of the woman passengers lost 000 worth of jewels and a man lost 300 in cash. There were seventeen horses on board the iteamer. It was Impossible to rescue them, but the men having them tn charge humanely cut them loose and gnTe them food, so that they might have a chanco for their lives. GEisaow, March 2. The Glasgow Cittern rays that the Labrador had a summerlike pas sage most of the way over, and tnado good run ning, but aa she neared this side the Captain and officers were unable to tako sights for three days owing to the fog. Conseauently, the only guide to the position of the shlp'was that given byldeadlreckoning. which, by reason of the currents, was untrustworthy. The Cap tain had been on dec): since 2 P. M. Tuesdny when tho ship struck. Tho second officer was on the slok list, and the third ofilcor had taken the watch with the Captain. The passengers, who were In their berths, were awakened by a crash and rushed on deck. The Labrador had run well up on a rock and was filling rapidly. Tho ship was rocking with the heavy swell, which made the launching of the boats difficult. The cooler headed of the passengers calmed the womon, and the crew did their duty with the most praiseworthy discipline. When the first boat was ready the women and children were lowered Into It with ropes. While the other boats were being filled the Viking hove in sight, and took on board nil of the passengers and crew, except those In ono boat, whloh made its way to the Skorryvore Lighthouse. This boat contalnod twelve pas lengers, who remain prisoners at tho light house, as the wind freshened and they were unable to return to tho Viking. All of the passengers are in good spirits. A few of them had some of their effects with them, tied In bundles, when they wnro landed. The ship had been going slowly, bnt just be fore the accident the Captain signalled the en gine room to go ahead at full speed, believing that the course was eloar. Liverpool. March 2. The tug Oreat Em , peror, with divers on board, has boon sont to the wreck of the Labrador to endeavor to re cover the malls. TTPUOID TX VATEItSOX.
