STEAMER AL-KI PICKS UP THE VICTIMS For Nearly Five Days the Three Hundred Men and Women Watched for a Ship. Corona Struck the Rock Early Sunday Morning and Sank After Five Hour 8, Leaving the Passengers on the Lonely Shore of Lewis Island, Where They Were Exposed to the Elements—Scores Lost Their Outfits, But Nearly All Went -North to Try for Better Luck—Big Crowd at the Wharf to Meet the Survivors, The steamer Al-Ki arrived in port last night shortly after 9 o'clock, bringing twenty five passengers from the wrecked steamer Corona. Lons before the vessel pulled up to the wharf the Ocean dock was crowded with a mass of humanity that made it jiext to impossible for late comers to get a view of the approaching ship. Ropes had to be stretched across the passageways leading around to the landing to keep the spectators from crowding the place sons to make it impossible for the passengers to come ashore. As it was. it required some effort to open a passage way through the crowd, and then the passengers could hardly walk two abreast from the landing to the front of the warehouse. The accident, which sent "00* tons of valuable freight to the bottom of the sea and Imperiled the lives of over 3uo souls, including men, women audi children, together with officers and crew, occurred at T:l(i o'clock Sunday morning. January 23. More than half of the 1,000-mile trip to Alaska had been made and the steamer had entered Aruthur channel, between Kennedy and Porcher islands. The morning gong had sounded to awaken the passengers for breakfast. Scores of men and woftun had been obliged to tdeep on the doors in the social hali and saloon. All were a wake, and perhaps a hun dred were up and about. Both Capt. G. H. Pierce and Pilot H. F. Cauffman were on the bridge. It was Cauffman's first trip as pliot. There was light enough to see the shores on all sides and Henderson's point, on Lewis island, over the bow. Suddenly, while the ship was going at full speed, a terrible shock occurred, followed by a grinding succession of lesser shocks. Those on deck were thrown by the force of the concussion, while those still in bed were tumbled out In confusion and alarm. It took but an instant for all to realize that the ship had struck a rock. After the Shock. Instantly there was great scurrying among the mass of living freight. Men and women grabl»ed articles of clothing and hurried out with anxious faces to Inquire the extent of the accident. The wheel had been reversed a moment after the shock, but the ship had remained on the rock. The sea was calm, the air coitf and bracing. Over the mountains, far to the southeast, a red streak denoted the approach of sunrise. No sign of life could be seen along the shores—nothing but rugged banks and snowy moun tains. draped in the stray cloak of dawti. Would the ship sink? Would it remain afloat long enough (o allow of the safe 'and ing of the big load of passengers? Some of tho iron* apprehensive came running out of their rooms with life preservers about them. More looked toward the nearest land and calculated hastily their chances of swimming to shore. Others hastened to get relatives or friends together and to pack a few article into satchels. Many timid glances were turned toward the water to ascertain if the ship was sinking. Minutes went by without perceptible change in the situation of the boafeand the passengers began to get over their fright and alarm. Meanwhile the officers were giving such orders as would Insure the safety of the passengers. Capt. Pierce s«ve orders for the instant lowering of the lifeboats, and soon la fleet of these were in the water. The captain announced from the bridge that the women and children nre to be taken ashore first, the men n< xt ami some provisions next. If there was still time the baggage was to be landed afterward. He cautioned the passengers not to be alarmed, and declared there would be plenty of time to get all ashore safely. The ship struck ro kat 7:10 a. m. At 7:45 the first load, containing twenty women, left the side of the vessel. A second followed in a few moments and others were filled rapidly. It was abbut 600 feet to tho rocky shore, and it took but a few minutes for a boat to make the trip. Meanwhile the steamer was slowly sinking at the stern. Rather the bow seemed to be rising higher out of the water. It was low tide when tbe accident occurred. At 10 O'clock the passengers were ali landed and the baggage was being brought ashore. Those who looked over tow ird thi doomed vessel then saw that the stern was deeper in the water than usual and that the list to por- was more noticeable than when they left the ship. 11 istily the men worked to save the baggage, blank-is and food, for there nnd deeper the stern of the vessel sank, until at noon, five hours after the unfortunate *.t* no telling how long they would be obliged to live on the desolate Island. Deeper accident, the after cabin disappeared, submersing about half or two-thirds of the upper work of the steamer. The work of saving the baggage had been susp-nded before this. ntid the men had their attention directed toward r- ulng the twenty horses aboard, together with the twenty or more dogs. The horses were lowered into the water and forced to swim ashore. This process was watched with interest by the throng of people on shore, and when all were landed the passengers pro-ceded to try to make themselves comfortable on the bleak island. The wind soon sprang up and continued to increase in violence all afternoon, and many of the passengers congratulated themselves upon the calm weather that had prevailed at the time of the catastrophe. Undoubtedly severe loss of life would hay* resulted had :!ie pea been for the shore bore the most forbidding aspect. The Hrrnp on Hhore. • ■ As the b at loads of Kg »ge touched shore, lines of men formed and passed the bundles up above high tide. One b at brought a salvage line ashore from the vessel and n string of forty or more men drew in the hawser and secured it to the rocks and trees. The tide and the increasing gale lashed the waters higher and higher on the rocky point, compelling the people to seek shelter in the woods. Just above the water was a cli nse Jungle of edtr trees and w ndfalls. intermingled with rocks. A few axes had come ashore and tires were hastily started and camps erected. As the afternoon wore on the people regained themselves info groups and passed scanty lunches around, not enough for meals, but enough to stave off starvation. Very few had had breakfast ■before leaving the vessel, and the sc«ne of the day a."ted as a stimulus to make all foraet the gn twing p >nus of hunst*r. Groups of men erected tents for themselves, others spread blankets, grabbed in a hurry from t'le sinking ship, over limbs of trees, to answtr for shelter from the blinding snow and cold wind which every moment in creased in violence. There were scores who had neither tent nor blanket. These stood about the fires to keep warm, or went into the deep woods and crawled un#er rocks, Jo,i■ or roots and r-rew a few brinches over them to keep out th* cold and dampness. The soil wis s- soaked with water and snow that it wo Impossible to keep dry without do?., ns of blank' « pnd blankets were « nr.c.

Em phatic and bitter comments were expressed on all «ld*s against Pilot Cauffman. It was «i ire.t that raiiffmnn w•- in «omi>et and that he had no license.

Jan. 30.—The steamer it; 1 wood, loaaeu witn government equip ments and torage tor tne Alaska reuet expedition, is ly.ng at the whart at Van couver barracks ready to transfer ht-r freight to the steamer George W. Elder when she arrives from Alaska tomorrow. The Elder is scheduled to sail again on February 1. She will carry the uu>st of an escort of sixty enlisted men and 150 tons of supplies, and the steamer Signal, which sails from Seattle February 7, will carry 110 pack animals, twenty-four men and a portion of the relief supplies. Gen. Merriam, commanding the depart ment of the Columbia, has decided upon landing the entire expedition at I>yea and pushing forward over rhe Chilkoot pass as fast as possible. He has notified the Chicago Snow and Ice Transportation Company, which has the contract to transport the supplies from Dyea to the interior, that its train must be ready to receive freight by February 15 at Dyea. Gen. Merriam is. working out a plan to ascertain the number of people and tha amount of supplies that will enter Alas ka this summer. Speaking of this matter today he said: "From present Indications a greater re lief expedition will be needed next winter than this. Hundreds of men are already Map Showing Where the Corona Struck the Hidden Rock—The Usual Course of Steamer* and That Pursued by the Itl-Fatcd Vessel. embarking for the gold fields without more than sufficient supplies to la.-t during the summer's prospecting, it appears that thousands more are on the way in a simi lar condition.

Therefore it is my opinion that the Alaskan detachment of the army could not 1-e better employed than to watch the tr.iM.-i and tally the men and provisions pawing to the interior.

NOT LIKELY TO COME TO A VOTE The Intention or the Honse Leaders Is to \ote Down the Teller Ke.«> Intlon as Speedily as Possible, and to Limit the Debate, to (ihr a Prompt and Derisive *nratlre to the Senate's Deelaratlon on Silver. WASHINGTON. Jan. a\-T!-e cemte proceedings for the week will open with a speech by Senator Pettigrew dealing with the Hawaiian tfuasjion, which will b* delivered Monday. Beyond this speech It is very difficult to forecast the outlook for the w» ek. The diversion occasioned by tte takinx op of the Teller bond resolution has left tho senate in a somewhat disorganized, un settled condition and with no pre.'i tanged programme. Setwtor Pettigrev.'s speech will be m.tile during the morning hour, and the prob ability i 3 that its conclusion, or at least at 2 o'clock, one of the gene•: il appropri ation l-ills will IH? called up. The ;rrey and tho legislative appropriation bills are already on the calendar, and the eration of the agricultural bill h,-s been conpleted by the committee, so that it will be reached in Monday. The probability is that the army bill will be the first of these measures to re ceive cons'ierutlon, though tht r. is same disposition to displace it with the legis lative bill. Senator Allison, chairman of the committee on appropriations, seid to day that it was his purpose to hav • th > appropriation bills considered in advance of other measures, and if he adheres :o this determination the week may be large ly taken up with them. £»o far a* can be seen now there ate few feature* in the hills already reported calculated to arou.-c discussion. There is a feeling in certaia quarters that the army bill should be amended by a provision for th«* Increase of the army, and if sueh a change should be attempted it would give rise to very spirited debate. The census bill also will be prcs-e<i for consideration during the week, and Sen ator Carter. chairman of the census com mittee, said today that he was very hope ful of securing its passage in the near future. The debate upon the civil service will be resumed when this bill is taken up and the bill w r !U be so amended as to give the control of the census bureau to the secretary of the interior. The bi-metalllst Republican s» nators are still discussing the advisability of renew ing the financial agitation in the senate by the introduction of *om>- measure of their own, though they do not se. m now quite ?o intent on this course as they ap peared to be immediately *ucee#dlng the vote on the Teller resolution, if they pre sent a resolution it probably will !>• a declaration to the e«?K-t that the Unit>d States I.* not < mmnted to th< gol i stand ard.
