Inbound American Steamer Smashes Into Transport
Awaiting Sailing Orders; Panama Keeps Breach
Plugged With Own Nose Until All On Board
Are Taken Off in Tugs and Other Craft.
AN ATLANTIC PORT, July 30. An American transport, the
Saratoga, at anchor, awaking sailing orders, was rammed by an in
bound American steamship, the Panama, here today. The ship
Beaded toward the beach in a sinking condition.
Meanwhile those on board were safely taken off in lifeboats or by j
tugs and other craft in the harbor which responded to distress signals. So i
far as is known no one was injured. I
A deep hole in the transport's port quarter extending from below the
vater line to the rail resulted from the collision. The captain of the Panama
held the bow of his ship tight against the transport, effectually blocking the
wound until all on board were taken off.
Later the Saratoga was beached.

J by Dr. Micnaelis, German imperial
chancelor, and count Czernln. the
