I Boston. March 11. While ploughing their way through Pollock Rip slue, oft the heel of Cape Cod, about 8 o'clock yesterday morning the steamer Horatio Hall, bound from Portland for Njw York, and the steamer H. F. Dl- moek. from New York for Boston, col ' lided. The Dimock cut her way into the port side of the Hall almost to the mainmast, about twenty feet. Her captain. John A. Thompson, ordering full speed ahead, kept her nose in the gap and shoved the wounded vessel across the slue to the western side. r where she grounded on a. sand bank ; and filled with water, i While the Dimock's nose was acting ', as a collision mattress the five pas 'sengers on hoard the Hall, including two women. Miss Ruth Emstrom and Miss Gurli. Emetrom. were swung .'swung across to the deck of the form ' er, and some of the crew followed them. . After the Hall had settled to the (bottom and her decks were about awash the remainder of the people on .board her. except Capt. H. F. Jewell, First Officer James Parker of New York, the pilot and two seamen, low- ered a lifeboat and rowed to the Di pnock. where they were taken aboard. (Capt. Jewell refused to leave his vessel i and the others decided to etay with him. They are "in no great danger as ithey have lifeboats in plenty. The revenue cutter Gresham is in the .neighborhood and only at high water will they be obliged to take to the rig Sing. The settling of the Hall upon the sand bank did not complete the story, Ifor the Dlmock in driving a wedgelike 'hole into the side of the other craft had a gash eight feet wide torn in her starboard bow. through which the wa iter began to come aim"- immediately. 'At first the pumps handled the inflow ;without difficulty.but when the DiAock jtried to steam up along the CapelCod ' beach on her way to Boston a rising ea began to send a dangerous vojume ;Of water into the opening, j There was danger of the steamer I sinking and Capt. Thompson had a (lifeboat swung out on the davits, and into this he placed the two women 'taken from the Hail with Mrs. and .Miss Casey of Melrose Hillside. Mass.. ! passengers on the Dimock. Whey were wrapped in blankets and told to re ;Tnaln in the boat, so that if the vessel fwent down they would be saved. Or ders were also issued by Capt. Thomp Ison to the men passengers and sea men not to take to s, boat until he gave the word. Under these trying conditions, with ithe Dlmock in danger of plunging to tthe bottom any minute, Capt. Thomp- !son crowded on all steam and made for the Orleans beach. The craft struck her keel into the sand about half a mile south of the Orleans life saving 'station at 2:15 yesterday afternoon and the tooting of her whistle soon brought lifeboats from the Orleans, Old Har bor and Nauset stations. The passengers on both vessels and the crew of the Horatio Hall were 'brought ashore, the officers and crew ,of the Dimock remaining on board to "aid in wrecking operations, which will begin as soon as the tugs Underwriter and Orion and the big lighter Salvage Teach the scene, these craft having tarted from Boston late last evening. The chances are that the Dimock will be floated again. The passengers from the vessels and the sailors brought ashore remained in Orleans last night find will proceed to their destinations ! to-day. The Horatio Hall sailed from Port land having 700 tons of freight on ; board and five passengers: Miss Ruth Emstrom and Miss Gurli Emstrom of Brooklyn. M. T. Marks of 561 Broad way, New York: W. S.

The Hall veered a little to the west ward, as the sound of the approaching steamer indicated that she was headed directly for her. Then in less time than It takes to tell it the Dimock fburst out from the fog into full view and drove her bow deep into the side of the Hall.

CHILDREN BRIDGEPORT, CONN. . t There was shouting and yelling aboard both vessels, but the seamen were cool and their officers gave orders calmly. The steward of the Hall passed up the two women passengers who were lightly clad, having just tumbled from trlelr berths. They were Quickly pass ed by the sailors across to the deck of the Dimock and the male passengers clambored over also. Meantime, the Hall was being shoved sideways across the Slue, heeling to starboard until her hull brought up against a sand bank. The Dimock then backed away and efforts were made to patch up the hole in her bow. When the Hall was slowly sinking, the wireless man on board her began i sending out the "C Q D" call, which j was picked up by a number of Govern- ment stations along the coast. The ! revenue cutter Gresham was in Vine j yard Sound on her way to the freight ' steamer Massachusetts ashore to the j westward and got this message. The Gresham at once changed her ' course to the eastward, but by this time the wireless on the Hall was put out of commission by the rising watsr in her hold, and therefore there was no way for the Gresham to ascertain Jus; where the steamer had sunk Later the Gresham got a message from a land station and proceeded to Pollock Rip. STARIN'S CREW GIVE TESTIMONY TO INSPECTORS Testimony was taken yesterday in New Haven before the United States Steamboat Inspectors from Captain Van Pelt and other officers of the steamer John H. Starin which ran on the breakwater in this city the night of Feb. 19 and is still there. The in quiry by the steamboat inspectors was to find outhere to attach the blame. Captain Van Pelt told the inspectors that when the Starin left New Haven it was blowing hard and when off Stratford they encountered very heavy weather. Chief Engineer Allen then sent word that the boat was leaking and Captain Van Pelt headed the steamer for Bridgeport, Intending to make harbor here, but he could not make out the Bridgeport light. The weather got thicker all the time, and the first the captain knew the Starin struck the pile of rocks of the Bridge port breakwater. Pilot Thomas McBrien. Quartermas ter Anderson and Chief Engineer Allen gave practically the same testimony as did Captain Van Pelt. Attorney James D. Dewell of New Haven and Captain Dietz, the superintendent of the Starin Transportation line, were there representing the Starin interests and Frank H.

SERVIA'S NOTE SATISFACTORY ACCEPTED AS ASSURING PEACE IN THE BALKANS. Paris, March 11. In Governmental circles today. Servia's latest note to the powers is regarded as satisfactory and a friendly move from Austria is expect ed at once. In the communication Servia states that she does not desire to provoke war with Austria, but only maintains that it is the duty of the powers to decide the question of the annexation of Bosnia and Herzegovinia by Austria and that Servia will abide by the decision. Servia says that, no mattter how the appeal is decided, she desires no compensation from Austria. While the act is expected to make for Europe peace messages from Bel grade say it has been received there with deep resentment and is likely to stir up such feeling against the rule of King Peter as to endanger the dynasty.
