RELIEF AT LAST MOMEN Survivors Rescued When So Weakened b Exposure as to Be Unable to Move. [By Associated Press] Boston, Oct. 16.-The story of a North Atlantic shipwreck in which eight seamen suffered so fearfully from exposure, hunger and thirst that six of them either died outright, were washed away, or crazed by their fear ful experience, tnrew themselves in to the sea, was told today by the two survivors of the coasting schooner Vanname of New Haven, which was! beaten to pieces by a gale off the South Carolina coast, October 6. The two men who lived throughout the five days were rescued by the schoon er Stillman, which arrived here late today, are Thomas and Warner, both about 25 years of age, and hail from Antigua. The six who succumbed were Captain Wm. A. Maxwell of New Jersey, Mate E. A. Chase, home un known; the engineer, a German, name unknown; the colored steward, name unknown, a colored seaman, William Grizell, and Alfred Arthur, both of Jamaica. Springs Leak in Gale. The Vanname, which has been ply ing up and down the coast since 1886, left Charleston, S. C., for New York, October 3 with a cargo of hard pine. Two days later she ran into a heavy gale and sprang a leak. The pumps were started, but within a short time the engine room was flooded and the pumps choked. At 8 o'clock in the morning of October 6, with her hold nearly full of water, the schooner was hove down on her beam ends.

Mystery Continues to Surround Sioux City Double Tragedy. [By Associated Presl] Sioux, City, Oct. 16.-The mystery surrounding the double tragedy in a hack here last Sunday afternoon has not yet been entirely solved. The theory of the police is that I. S. Darrow, of Lead, S. D., the mine promoter, who shot and instantly kill ed his son's wife, Mrs: W. E. Darrow of Belle Fourche, S. D:, and then kill ed himself, is that Darrow was insane ly jealous of the woman, or that he had decided because of his financial condition that he and the woman should die together. Strength is given to the latter theory by certain senti ments found written in the note books of the couple. They had little money, $3 being the total round in the man's pockets and 75 cents in the woman's. A letter from Lead, S. D., may have indirectly caused the woman to lose her lift and her murderer to kill him self. In the letter, which was signed "C. C. T.," the writer told the woman of his love for her.
