Anti-Parker Element Is Unable to
Agree on Candidate, but Great
Efforts Are Being Made to Defeat
the Judge Conservatives' Candi
date Must Win on Second Ballot-
Cleveland Is Still an Important
Special to The Globe and New York Herald 7-7?7 77 7;
ST. LOUIS,. Mo., July 3. Judge Alton B. Parker, of New
York, today approached the supreme test of hiscandidacy for
the Democratic nomination for president. -.-■ 7;7-777.
All the opposition to his nomination suddenly converged
and he must now demonstrate his ability to poll at least a
majority, of the delegates on the first ballot and to obtain : two- ,
thirds of the convention in very short time thereafter. '•%
It must be said that Judge Parkers-success vis being helped '
by. the fact* that tie field" is so' : widely.i scattered it has |
thus far been unable to converge on any one candidate; that
no strong man has appeared to weld the divided and 'dis-l
eordant anti-Parker elements, and that it has been an impossi
bility thus far to fuse the supporters,of Mr. Bryan and the
supporters of Mr. Cleveland.
The effectiveness of the strong Cleveland undercurrent is
damaged by the fact that a great many delegates to the con
vention have carefully considered the 7question. of voting for
Mr. Cleveland, have decided that at all. hazards he shall not
be the nominee of the convention. With a view to ascertain
ing definitely the Cleveland strength, even should Judge
Parker's nomination prove to be impossible, the Herald made
a poll of the delegates. This poll shows that even with Judge
Parker manifestly defeated, Mr. Cleveland would start with
less thaiVscne-half the number of votes necessary to nominate. -
This means that he could only be made the candidate after a
long struggle, and probably never by a stampede.
. - ■ . - ...
Efforts to bring Senator Gorman out as en avowed
date against Parker have failed. It is now said that his name
.will not be presented to the convention, but that the Maryland
delegates will vote for him. Gorman prefers Parker to
Cleveland and) fears a Cleveland stampede if Parker be not
chosen. .''■■-.
William J. Bryan arrived early and promptly made known
his intention of defeating Parker if he could possibly encom
pass it, and of fighting for the Nebraska state platform. This

Steamer INorge, Bound for New York,
Strikes Rock and Vessel Then Fills
With Water—Heavy Sea Capsizes
Life Boats—Twenty-Seven Sur

Having Been Picked Up by a
7. LONDON, July 3.Over 700 Danish and Norwegian-'emi-'
grants bound ' for New York are believed to have': been
drowned in the North;Atlantic on June 28. Out of nearly SOO
souls on board the Danish steamer Norge, which left Copen
hagen June 22, only twenty-seven are known to be alive, "arid
for the rest no hope is held out. ' 7 .":.:■
When last seen the Norge was sinking where she struck,
on. the : islet of Rockall. wh*>se isolated: peak raises itself from
a deadly Atlantic reef some. 290 miles off the west coast of
Scotland. - . ' ZZtZZZ.Z- ' -7 : ' 7;^-fl
'■'-■ Early on the morning of last Thursday the Norge, which
was out of her course in heavy weather, ran onto the Rockall
reef, which in the distance looks like a ship under full sail.
The Norge was quickly backed off, but the heavy .sea poured
in through a rent in her bows;
7 The emigrants, who were then awaiting breakfast below,
ran on deck. The hatchways were scarcely built for: these
hundreds of souls, and became clogged. 7 y-yy
The quickly began to go down by the head. Eight
boats were lowered and into these the women and children
were hurriedly put. Six of these boats smashed against the
side of the Norge and their helpless inmates were caught up
, by the heavy seas: ..7 ..-„..:'.yy " .. j,"
Two boatloads got safely away from the side of the sinking
ship and many of the emigrants who were left on board, b'ei2
ing : 7 life belts, threw themselves into the sea and were
drowned. •//':* ' Z^^^^^^^^^^S^^^^^^_&^
Capt. Gundel, so say the survivors, stood on the bridge of
the doomed vessel until it. could be seen no niore^^^^^^^^i
The. Norge . foundered suddenly and some 600 terrified,
emigrants were thrown into the water or drawn down with
the sinking ship. Those who could swim tried to reach the : 7
boats,: taut these were already too full, and their occupants
beat off the drowning. wretches with oars. ". 7 .7"'
- The boats kept together for some hours.- Practically all
of their occupants were passengers ; and were not used to
handling such craft. The boat occupied by the survivors,
which landed at Grimsby, was a lifeboat. 7-7; '~
One 7 account says that three boats were successfully
launched, the other two holding about ten persons each.
The lifeboat made faster progress and fell in with the
Salvia.. What became of the other boats is not yet known.
The rescue of those on the lifeboat took place at S o'clock
on the morning of June 29, the survivors consisting of twenty
men, one of them a seaman, six women and a girl.
BOAT FILLS ;^^^^^^ '
.- One of the survivors said that when he got on deck the"
Norge was half submerged and was rapidly getting lower in
'theL water. Half mad with fright, the survivors all struggled
for places in the boats. They fought their.way to the big life
boat and :an officer stowed in the six women and the girl and
then told the men to get in. 7 7' 7 * ' ZyZ:'Z-.
The officer then took charge and got the boat away from
the side of the Norge. Seeing that the boat was already over
loaded-the. officer .-with great heroism jumped into the water,
and tried to board another boat which was not so full. He
failed and was drowned.
- In the sea by this time was a mass of struggling men,
women and children, gasping and choking 7 from the effects
of the water. The boat rowed clear of this seething inferno.
and just as she drew away the Norge went down. *
; The steam trawler Salvia put into Grimsby late tonight 7
with the twenty-seven rescued Scandinavians aboard. One:
of them said: '777 . Zy'
