Loss on the Vessel About $900,000. Fan Francisco, Feb. 25.—The sink lng of the Pacific mail steamer Rio de Janeiro by striking a rock in the Golden Gate Friday morning was the fnost appalling disaster this coast has known for many years. Most of tin bodies of the 120 or more victims are at the bottom of the sea and many of them may never be recovered.

Scliwerein. vice president and general manager of the Pacific Mail Steamship company. In discussing the loss of the uio de Janeiro, said he thought the blame was due to Cap tain Ward in biingina vessel in iluring a fog. inie and again*." Mr. Scbwer eln. "*e have warned our captains never to leave or enter a port during a fog. It is the usual thing to consider that when a pilot boards a vessel a captain has no more responsibility. The pilot is simply a guide to the cap talh. The statements of those saved from the Uio de Janeiro seem to indi cate that a fog was hanging around the harbor at the time, and I think iintiiie haste was shown by Captain Ward in bringing his vessel in. I do not see why there should be so much haste shown when the vessel had lain outside all nivht. Captain Waul was a careful officer, and 1 learn that when lie reached Honolulu with the Hlo V Janeiro he waited outside the bar for 11 hours rather than take any chanc in th" rough weather. "Of ourse he is not here to speak. I wish that he was, for he was one of our ft officers. He was brought up In our service, and we feel deeply over his lo?s and that of his comrades." PILOT JORDON'S STORY. Heavy Fog Prevailing the Cause of the Disaster. The wreck of the Rio de Janeiro, which for a while hung on a pinnacle of the rock where she struck in the Golden Gate so that parts of her upper work w -f visible, ha.s slid off into deep v.at* and is now entirely out of sii\. Fort Point, where Pilot Jor dan .jms the vessel struck, marks the Narrowest point of the entrance to tie hav and is usually given a wide th by mariners. The tide here runs very swiftly and at times has a swirling motion. Off Fort Point lie several sunken rock forming a dang rous !ge on the southerly edge of the fair war channel of the Golden Gate, but lose under the shore. Th re Is a light on top of the fort and a fog bell, but the latter cannot be h. ard far when a westerly wind is blow g. Cat tain Frederick W. Jordan, th" pilot who was in charge of the Rio de Janeiro when she went on the reef and sank, is a man a little past middle life ami has been a master mariner on th:s coast for over 2 years. He came from the Atlantic coast. Pre vious to being appointed a pilot, about 12 ye trs aco. Jordan was in comman 1 of the Wellington. Bristol and other colic -s still plying between this port and I'uget sound. He was a remark «bl« successful navigator and never before had any notable misfortune. He declares that the loss of th^ r-teamer could not have been foreseen. A'cording to his story the vessel drifted half a mile broadside In the fcg that enveloped the home-hound steamer like a pall and no mi»i could have Judced either the direction or the velocity of the invisible current that changed her course and sent her on the Fort Point ledge. The Rio de Janeiro has, since the year 1890, had several bad accidents. Minneapolis People Probably Lost. Minneapolis, Feb. 25.—It is feared ttat Judge A. M. Harrison and his wife of this city were among the los»t passengers on the Rio de Janeiro. Judge Harrison, who is on the bench of the district court, was spending a vacation in Honolulu and had written his friends here that he and his wit expected to sail for home on the llio. There is. of course, the chance that thev did not sail :is_c xpected. lit-nitre of Ointmt-nt* for Cnturrh That Contain* Mt-rrurj.
