In one of the worst marine disasters In the his tory of the California coast between 100 and 150 lives were lost, as far as has been learned, by a midnight col lision between the steamer Columbia and the steam lumber schooner San Pedro In Shelter Cove, 12 miles south west of the Mendocino-Humboldt county line, between 12 and 1 o'clock Sunday morning. Only meagre details of the tragedy have been received, though every ef fort has been made to get the facts. Scores of telegrams to Eureka, the nearest point of Importance, remain unanswered. The few details known here were brought by the Bteamer Roanoke and the steam schooner Palsy Mitchell, which arrived in San Francisco yesterday forenoon. The Columbia, a 300 foot steel ves sel of the San Francisco and Portland Steamship company, while bound Irom San Francisco for Portland, Ore., with 189 passengers and a crew of 60, collided with and was rammed by the San Pedro, a 170 foot wooden steamer, southbound for this city. The sea was smooth but the weath er was foggy. The San Pedro, loom ing out of the mist a few ship lengths away, bore down on the Columbia at high speed, despite frantic efforts to clear.' With a grinding crash the San Pedro sank her stem fully 10 feet Into the Columbia's port bow. Nearly all of the Columbia's passen gers and many of her crew were asleep when the collision occurred. As the San Pedro backed away the sea poured in through the ragged hole In the Columbia's bow above and below the water line, and in five minutes she sank. The story of that five minutes Is yet to be told and until it Is told by some survivor the facts of the trag edy can be but guessed at mt m 4 The Oil City Trust Company Furnishes one of these self-registering safes to any depositor requesting it.

Cautaln Doran of the Columbia succeeded in launching four life boats and tw rafts before the Columbia sank. Flynn in an inter view Is quoted as saying that 88 pas sengers, all men, got away In that manner and were saved; that Captain T)oran acted with great coolness In the face of denth and went down with his ship. Flynn is further quoted ns say ing that not ono of the 100 odd women passengers was saved. Shortly after the collision the steam ers Roanoke and George V. Elder and the steam schooner Daisy Mitchell, all southbound, came on the scene and stood by. The Elder took the San Pedro in tow and the latest report an nounces their arrival In Eureka. The stem of the Snn Pedro was smashed lo Bpllnters, one of her masts was snapped off at the deck, she was set fling and she had a heavy list when taken In tow. Captain Hansen re mained on board. The Dnlsv Mitchell offered assist ance to the Elder, but this was de clined. She picked up a lifeboat and a raft of the Columbia and brought them to this city. Near the scene of the wreck the JItoanoke picked up a llferaft and found underneath It the dead body of a jinssenger supposed to be Edward Butler of Portsmouth, N. H. The officers of the Merchants' Ex change' in tills city and of the various newsnaners have been besieged since early morning by relatives and friends if the Columbia's passengers, but the innUtent and tearful requests for in- Tormation of the victims and the res cued remained unsatisfied. Beyond iho renorted facts that Butler was drowned and that Captain Doran went down with his ship few details or cas ualties have been received. .President Frey of the steamship company said that the Columbia lies in deep water and 13 miles off shore, and that for the present at least no attempt will be made to raise her. Captain Doran was regarded by the officials of the San Francisco and Portland Steamship company as one of the ablest seamen who ever oper ated a vessel on the coast. His ca reer had been free from accidents and this was the first disaster that had befallen any vessel over which he held command. Contractor Killed by Fall of Tree. Oneida, N. Y.. July 23. Ellsha G.
