PRESTON TELLS OF WRECK Omahan Survivor of Ship that Went Down Near Recent Disaster. BOAT STRIKES A BIQ ICEBERG; la Saved In the Last Lifeboat Left Before the Ship Sinks frith Oyer Half of ! Psaienser List on noard. The disaster of tho Pacific Coast Steamship company's Iron steamer, Stato of California Sunday morning In Gambler bay, oft the coast of Alaska, recalls to mind a similar disaster in 1901, Just sixty miles north of the present one, of which Walter G, Preston, treasurer of tho Bankers' Reserve Life company la a survivor. "Our ship sank fourteenmlnutea after the first shock of strlklnsTthe Iceberg," said Mr. Preston. "Out of ISO passengers and tho crew, there were but sixty-five passengers saved. Tho crew ran away with the life boats." "My wlfo was with me we had been married only two weeks. It was about 2 o'clock In the morning when we struck the Iceberg. I stepped Into the main saloon and noticed the bow was alnnted toward the Icy water. , I then went Into the smoking compartment, where I found a number of men smoking, and trying on life preservers; but not ono was mak ing any effort to escape. The mate ran In, out of breath, and told up there was no danger; that the boat would right Itself In a minute, and that we should ro turn to our staterooms. I felt the ship Jar a trifle, and slip, and I returned to my wife. She hastily dressed, and, with only out outer clothing we sought the deck. I went to tho rail and could ico tho position of our ship. It seemed sta tionary, caught on a portion of the Ice berg, with Its bow hidden In the waves and tho propeller fifteen feet above water. Only One Lifeboat. "There waa only one life boat in sight. The creW had in Its haste to escape, taken tho others. There were two peopte In the llfo boat when my wife and I climbed In. Wo tried to cut away, but In the excitement, some ono cut one ropo and left the other, which caused the life boat to hand perpendicular In the water. We hung on somehow until tho remaining ropo was cut and the boat lighted her self. Ono potoengeY slid overboard, but we picked him up afterward. Then wo started rowing, not knowing where, but Just anywhere, and In the cold night the drenched ocoUpants of the lifeboat, of whom there were fourteen, were anxious for tho exercise. We had Just cleared tho propeller, when we heard an explosion and tho shlpv plunged Into the water as swift ns on arrow. And from the time we truck the Iceberg until the ship sank but fourteen minutes elnpeed. "We could see nothing that resembled o shore at first, on nccount of tho dark ness. But somewhere in the direction of tho siinkon ship we heard the cries of Women. We debated n. mntnnnt. RhmiM wo return to tho ship and try to save womenr We did not Wo knew that In their frenzy they would swamp tho lifeboat, already well filled with passen gers anu uadiy leaking. So we rowed away, and their cries beenmn fnintAr fainter, until nt last we could hear them no longer. Then a deep sense of dejection j and silence settled upon all ot us there In that frail little leaking craft. We thought that we had done rlvht. hut m.tut ' - '".. u.ai, v.vu . uuer inrir crip imrt riii.i .., .... Icled wa still heard them.
