Tather Point. They put out at once full steam ahead
and rushed to the sinking giant's aid.
As the dawn came the government steamer Eure
ka and a coal steamer could be seen in the distance,
but there was no trace of the Empress. The Eureka
seemed to be the center of a fleet of lifeboats.
Wireless messages to Father Point declared 350
persons were saved by the Canadian government
steamers which rushed to the rescue of the Empress.
It is believed that at least seventy besides the 350
m the government steamerwere saved, either picked
jp from the water or taken from life rafts. The 350
survivors were landed at Rimouski by the Canadian
government boats Lady Evelyn and Eureka, which
raced to the rescue from here.
Under command of Captain Kendall, who is a lieu

Ireland left Quebec at 4:20 p. m. yesterday for Liverpool.

Reports from the London office of the Canadian Pa

On board the Empress was a contingent of Salvation

FATHER POINT, Quebec, May 29. With her Bow
badly smashed in where she collided with the Empress, the
Storstad passed this point, bound up river, shortly after
daylight. The collier wirelessed as she passed that she was
taking survivors and bodies to port. Names of the dead or
the number of those lost and saved were not given.
The Storstad's wireless read:
, "We are compelled to proceed slowly on account
of damages sustained invthe collision. The Empress
of Ireland was so badly rammed that she sank in about
nineteen minutes. A big hole was cut under her water

D. W..O'Donoghue.
The first formal protest against the
legality of the triennial assessment of
real estate In the District was made
today to Assessor William I. Richards.
It came from Danlil W. .CDonoghue,
