LOST IN AN ICY STORM Details of the Tragedy That Overtook the Newfoundland Seal Fishermen. SHIP DOMES HOME FULL OF DEAD. Twenty-Fire Carpaaa on Board aad Fifty rireOthan Suffering Terribly Fright ful E i p He ore of tha Maw Who Were Lost on the lee Two Deal hi aa Hour of tha Poor fellows During tha Awful Mght Ytftinu' Names, Bt Jor.h's. Xd.. March 19. The seal tut; atcarreer Greenland has sailed Into the harbor with a greweome cargo. Twenty-five corpses were piled upon the deck, and fifty-five men were moan ing with terrible suffering in the holds, from the pain of frost-bitten limbs and bodies. The little sealing steamer which sailed for the hunting grounds three weeks ago rpturned as an awful eharnel house. The drad bodies were in tiers on the decks of the steamer, disfigured and almost unrecognizable from the ef fects of the terrible suffering whic h they had endured, presenting one of the most horrible sit .: human eyes ever be held. All Went Well I ntil Tuesday. The Greenland set sail On mSt.Jonh's, Kd . about the 1st of March on her fate ful voyage. She was commanded by Captain George Barbour and carried a crew of nearly 200 hunters. The steam er proceeded northward with the rest of the sealing fleet, but after a couple of days she diverged on a separate track and reached the hunting gr unds not long after. Al! went well until Tuesday last and eaht were quickly encountered nnd several good parks were secured. On Tuesday morning the hunters left the ship about 7 o'clock as usual, when the lookout in the Crow's Nest reported Ice plentiful around them. Men Clad in Light Clothing. The men were clad in light clothing, for the slaughtering of seals is exhaus tive work. Scattered over the Ice field, they wandered far from the protection of the ;hip and a gale nnd snow storm shut them out frtm view. The Ice floe parted and they drifted away from the steamer. Long ere the storm subsided many of the unfortunate fellows had succumbed to the terrible cold and ex posure. Thusc- who did not were terri bly frostbitUn and suffered excruciating pain. The long night Trussed, but morn ing brought no help, for the storm still rng.-Kl nnd the atmosphere was thick with the snnw driven before the gale. Snow continued nearly all day. and the evening brought no cessation to the hich wind. XIGIIT OF I STOLD AGONY. Two Deaths Take Place Kvrry Hour Names of tho Dead. Another night, one which seemed to the helpless, drifting sufferers who still lived a thousand times longer than the first, was passed in untold agony. Some of the victims had already given up hope, and in despair, lav down nnit died, and every hour witnessed at least mo ueatns on that awful night on the Ice floe. Toward mornlnir the .irm subsided and clear weather enabled tho survivors to see that the Greenland was not far away, searching for the miss ing. The steamer bore down on the drifting Held of Ice, which had by thia time separated into a number of sec tions, and began the work of picking up the bodies of the dead anj the living. Twenty-five corpses were taken nn board that morning, but twenty-three men were still missing, and though the search was continued all day no more were recovered. Thursday night the Greenland headed for shore, reaching Bay de Verde Sunday, proceeding thence to St. John's with her ghastly cargo. Most of the men who met this awful fate on the treacherous Ice floes were married men with large families, who are thus deprived of all visible means of support. The names of the Greenland's dead are: Richard Pynn. James Mahar, St John's; Walter Murphy, Alfred Muley, Carbonear: William Casey, Quidlvidl; Edwin Pavis, John Thomas.
