Cummings, laden with grain from Chicago, foundered just eouth of the harbor pier thia morning. The crew took to the rigging. A life boat which went to the rescue of the crew was driven past the wreck and capsized by the breakers at Bay View. A fierce gale from the eouth was raging and a tre mendous sea swept into the bay. An unknown vessel also foundered off White Fish bay. In the city trees were blown down, light structures unroofed, and signs torn from their fastenings. The life-saving crew reached the shore safely by clinging to the boat, which was washed high and dry. Five men and a woman perished on the wreck of the schooner before the life saving crew reached the wreck. One of the crew and a life saver were rescued. The men who perished fell from their percheB in the eros6trees to the water and sank out of sight like pieces of lead. Tne body of the woman is still lashed to the rigging to which she escaped when the vessel began to sink. Six thousand people lined the piers and the shores of Jones' island and the main land when the tug Knight Tem plar towed a scow bearing the life savers to the doomed vessel. Five minutes passed as an attempt was made by the life savers to swine the lifeboat close to the waiting men.

Then a cheer that drowned the roaring of the breakers went up from the throats on shore along the beach at the ioottl Jones island. The crowd ran to meet the rescued men, and willing hands were stretched out to reaeh them and they were drag ged from the surf to a place of safety. The following is a list of the drowned: Capt.

It is closer in than moat people think and at the same time just far enough out lor a home; Subscribe for The Republican. De livered in any part of the city for only 15 cents a week. ALL ARE IMPATIENT. President Murphy Talks of the North and South Road. Why Phcenix People Are Not Alone in Their Hurry for the Com pletion of the Line. 'Presidant Frank M. Murphy, of the Santa Fe, Prescott & Phoenix railroad, arrived late laBt night from the north by private conveyance. He was accom panied by Mr. Charles Howard, a Chi cago capitalist, who has been looking over the Northern part of the territory and intends to spend several days in surveying the Salt River valley. Pres ident Murphy was seen last night at the company's offices. Concerning the date of the arrival of the road here, a matter always uppermost in the minds of Phoe nicians, he said that work was being pushed as rapidry as possible, and that it was probable that Phcenix wonld be reached by the first of next year. Trains are now running to within thirty-five miles of Congress mine, and within three weeks ten miles more will be com pleted. As to the report that the mine was the immediate southern objective point of operations, President Murphy said the object of the company was to se cure the greatest possible volume of traffic. However important the ship ping business of the Congress mine and all other mining camps along the route, it is the merest bagatelle in compari son with the business of the Salt River valley. Hence every exertion will be made to reach Phoenix at the earliest date. The people here, he said, are no more impatient for the completion of the road than the company is or the people along the Atlantic and Pacific. Said he: "While you are in a hurry for a market they are in a hurry to turniBh it. liav is now selling in Fres- cot and points along the Atlantic and Pacific at $ 30 a ton and barley at 2 and 3 cents a pound while here you're glad to get $6 to $8 a ton for alfalfa and barley is worth how much? 60 cents per hundred? I recently came west on the Atlantic and Pacific and at every point I stopped I was met by anxious inquiries as to how soon we would reach Phoenix. So you mav see the interest we have in getting here as soon as pos sible." President Murphy heard with great satisfaction the decision by Chief Justice Baker in the case of the board of supervisors of Yavapai county against the territorial board of equalization, sustaining the tax ex emption law. His gratification wbb not solely that the decision was of im mediate financial advantage to the company. It will impress eastern cap italists more favorably with the atti tude of the territory toward invested capital. It has long been understood that the courts and people of the weBt are hostile to the interests of investors and Mr. Murphy thinks this decision will have the effect of removing an im pression which has been extremely disadvantageous t'o the undeveloped and semi-developed resources of the ter ritory. AS TO STATEHOOD. Another Prospect of Delay Is Op- enea. Governor Murphy last night received a telegram from Senator Shoup, of Idaho, a member of the committee on territories, saying that the bill for the admission of Utah had been favorably reported, as was stated in the tele graphic columns of The Republican yesterday morning. The telegram contained beside, the rather unwelcome information that the senator did not believe that any of the other admission bills would be reported at this session. On the other hand, while Secretary Bruce was in Washing ton he was told by a member of the committee that the Utah bill would be reported within a few days and that the Arizona bill would shortly follow.
