One Woman Anion? the Saved.-No Cabin Passengers R^sened. HALIFAX, N.

According to the revised esti mates of the steamship people there were Ho first cabin passengers on board 125 second cabin, 2w third cabin, and of ,he crew, making a total of 787 froiu« TVrr.bla KrriiN. Some of the scenes enacted on hoard La Bourgogne just after the collision wero terrible to witness. Men fought for positions in the boats maniacs women 1 ought like raving were forced lack from the boats and trampled by men who mad® self preservation their hrst object. On board were a large num ber of the lowLr ?v safety ior tneinseives. In a boat was a party of 8J women, but so great was the panic not a hand was raised to as sist in its launching. The occupants, to uetir *aved, were drowued like rats when the ship, with an awful hissing bound, went down. So de»p rate was the situatiou that au Italian passenger drew his knife and made direct at one who, like himself, was endeavoring to reach the boats. Immediately his action was imitated iu every direction. Kuives wore flour ished aud used with effect. According to stories of survivors women we*e blabbed like so many sheej*. Log of tlto Crotnartyahire. The log of tho Cromartyshire, signed by Captain Heuderson, is as follows: ••Ou July 4th, at a. w., dense fog. position of ship, 03 miles south of Sable island, ship by wind ou port tack, heading about W. N. W., though under roduced canvas, going about four or five knots per hour. Our fog horn was beiug kept going regularly every min ute. At that time heard a steamer's whistle on our weather side or port beam, winch seemed to benearing very fast. We blew horn and were answered by steamer's whistle, wheu all of a sudden sho loomed through the fog on oar port bow and crashed into ns, going at a teirific speed. Our fore topmast aud main topgallaut mast came down, bringing with it yards aud everthiug attached. I imme diately ordered the bjats out aud went to examine the damage, 1 found that our bows were completely cut off, and the plates were twisted. Other ship disappeared through tho fog. However, our ship was fijating on her collision bulkhead, so there seemed no immediate dauger of her sinking. We set to work immediately to clear the wreckage and also ship our starboard anchor which was hanging over the starboard bow aud in dauger of punch ing holes in the bow. We heard a steamer blowing her whistle on coming back and wo auswered with our fog horn. The steamor then threw up a rocket and firod a shot. We also threw up some rockets and tired several shots but we neither saw nor heard any thing. Shortly after, or about 5:80, tho fog lifted somewhat aud we saw two boats pulling towards us with French flag fiyng. We signaled them to come alongside aud fouud that the steamer was La Bourgogue, from New York for for Havre, aud that she had gone dowu. We worked all day and re ceived ou board about 200 survivors from amoug passengers and crew, re ported to bo in all about 000. Several passengers were on life rafts without oars aud I called for voluuteers from aiuoug my crew, and the surviving French seamen, to bring those ratts alongside tho ship. Some of the pas- e „gers und seamen, from the sunken steamer assisted us and wo jettisoned aoine toils of cargo from our fore hold in order to lighten the ship. £bout p. m. another steamer hove in sight, bound westward. We put up our signals "N. O." (want assistance). Shortly after a steamer bore down '1B US. She proved to b« the Gro bound from Glasgow to Now The captain agreed to take the lingers on iard and also agreed to tmy ship to Halifax. Owing to the t'iiti !i of my ship, I accepted the ti und •1 tn proceeded at once to trans* passengers and get ready our tlme.

Tje wan nt that tim 14 feet of water tele forepeak." Mnry of the tiptain'i fs. Henderson, wife of the captain, ••lou board the Cromartyshire aud toih«T story of tho terrible disaster, Tiweather was foggy and she had ri^ from her bunk at an early hour. Shtly before the vessels came to gcer she detected a steamer's whistle bluing on tho port side. The Cro» nuyahire was souudiug her fog horn at intervals of one minute. Mi Henderson called the atten tia of her husband to the sound, inpf the whistle, aud a minute later thmat* who was on watch also de» teel the sound. It came nearer and nerer, and Mrs. Henderson stood near thi cabiu, in order to rescue her chidren should a disaster occur. Sud dely the huge hull (A an ocean steamer Jomed up in th® mist, going about 17 kots an hour. Almost immediately Thera Was a Fearful Craah an Mrs. Henderson rushed below aud fotid her children awakened by the shek. She dressed the little ones as qockly as possible, and removed them tohy boat, expecting their own ship to o down at any tims. Captain Hea deson, as soon as the collision occurred, rtTaered the boats to be lowered aud th«damage to be ascertained. As it W3 found that the Cromartyshire wa in no immediate danger the Br»t« isltr put about. Tne vessel with which thy had collided was at that time umnowu. A few minutes later her whstle was hear! an 1 several rockets w»re sent up. Captaiu Henderson re plisd in like manner, thinking the •taamer was offering assistance, but in i few minutes all was quiet aud those on board began to realize the awful re suits of the collision. At 5:3) the fog ifted aud two boats were seen ap- froichiug with only men on board. .U. -J No r*n Cao ribe I«. No pen can describe the terrible *-:ght revealed to the onlookers when the curtain of mist was lifted. The work of rescue was commenc»Mi without a moment's delay aud over 200 persuns were picked up and taken on board the ship. Mrs. Henderson, who had amp»e opportunity of interviewing those who were rescued expressed her belief from what she heard that there had been no effort to save the women. There were niauy foreigners ou board who fought for places in tha boats. It was fully 10 minutes to a quarter of an hoar before La Bourgogne went down, and during that time thoro WAS ample opportunity offered to rescue ot least some of the women and children. As it was only oue woman, Mrs. La Casse, was saved. She has been on board ever since. She is the wife of A. D. La Casse. a teacher of languages, of Piaiavilie. N. J. Nearly All Cabin l'Mienfrri Lost. The crew of the Cromartyshire com uicut freely upon the fact that only one woman was saved out of 3JJ. Nearly all the tirst class passengers were lost, those savad boiug steerage and sailors. Li Casse and his wife were iu the water two hours clinging to a raft, before they were picked up by a boat from the Cromartyshire. One passenger was goiug home to France with his two children, his wife having died a mouth provious.y. He was saved, but his two babies went down with tho ship. Mrs. La Casso says the ofiicers bravely stayed by their posts, going down with the ship. The only otlicer saved was the purser. He went dowu, but being a strong swim mer, mauaged to save himself. W heu the ship struck, they were off Cape Sable. The passeugers. with the sole exception Profesor La Casse, were below decks. Without warning came tho terrible shock. La Casse rushed in haste to his stateroom on tho deck. /iud got his wife out of bed and partly dressed. They hasteued on deck, only to bo precipitated into the water. They were not long in the water, however, when they found a partlv submerged raft upou which La Casse lifted his unconscious wife aud cluug to it himself. Some of the boats, La Casse says, capsized, aud all ou board were drowued. The struggling, swishing waters and tho terrible screams of the drowning mado the scene an awe-inspiring ono, never to be forgotten. One man ou the La Bourgogne when sho ^ank went out of of his miud, and jumped to a watery grave. On the morning of tho collision Captain Henderson was on the poop with his third mate. Sailor Haley was on lookout aud First Oflioor lvilmau was also ou tho foredeck. The Cromarty shire was making about five kuots an hour with several sails set and taking iu all tho time. Not a sound was heard until the lookout, Haley, saw large steamer half a ship s length ahead ou tho port bow. In an instant the Cromartyshire's jibboom struck the Bourgogue'* bridge aud tho sailing vos sel crashed luto the line?, staviug a big hole uear the engine room. The Bourgogue scraped tho whole length of the Cromartyshire's port side, aud then she veered off. The Bourgogne blew it' yyr Broadhead -III 1 ot in thf Shoes Hats ff% e Prices Cttaa. B.

May IUV* lleeti a Third VMMI About three hours after the Cro martyshire picked up the survivors, the Allan hue Grecian was sighted and came iu port with the Cromartyshire in tow. About S o'clock that evening, three miles away. Third Mate Stewart I heard guus and saw three rockets go up. and a blue light, the signal of dis tress, burning. The Grecian signalled to the Cromartyshire that she was going to assist the vessel signalling, In a few minutes, however, the light' disappeared and no more guus or i rockets were discharged, the vessel having sunk. Professor Li Ca.-se. one of the survivors, is of opinion that there was a third vessel in the col lision, as he saw the Bourgogne siuk within 10 minutes after tho collision. l'ubli«hiiiK a» «ual.
