Boat Tales of Survivors.
,The North German Lloyd steamer
Elbe was sunk with nearly 400 passen
gers aboard In the North Sea by col
lision with the British steamer Crathie,
bound from Rotterdam for Aberdeen.
' The following statement of the disas
ter was officially given by the German
vice consul, Herr Bradber, after sifting
all the interviews with survivors and
cross-qu estionin g officers and crew, and
it may be classed as the consensus of the
Officers' opinions:
, "The collision occurred 45 miles from
the Merschelling lightship. Though
both the Elbe and the colliding steamer
Crathie were going full steam ahead,
the concussion was very slight Imme
diately after the collision the Elbe be
gan to settle down, stern first, her bow
mounting high into the air and render
ing it impossible to reach some of the
"As everybody crowded upon the deck
immediately after the shock, and in a
state of great alarm, it was impossible
for the orders of the captain, who was
standing on the bridge, that the women
and children should be saved first, to be
"A rush was made for the boats that
were accessible. The first boat to touch
the water was immediately swamped
and the passengers who had crowded
into it were drowned. The second boat
launched was lost sight of in the high
sea which was running, but it is feared
she capsized. '
"In the third boat, at the last mo
ment, when the . water was up to the
promenade deck, the vessel sinking un
der their feet, and two minutes before
she disappeared, there crowded 19 men,
the women and children having rushed
to the other side, owing, it is said, to a
command that they should get into the
boats there.
"This third boat pulled away from the
ship, and in so doing shortly afterward
passed a lady passenger, Hiss Anna
Bnecher, who clung to the gunwale or
side of the lifeboat. Some time elapsed
before she could be pulled into the boat.
"The 20 survivors drifted about for
nearly 13 hours, the heavy seas repeat
edly washing over the small craft,
Which was in constant danger of being
swamped, and drenching its occupants
who had not a morsel of food.
"Hiss Bnecher lay in the bottom of
the boat half-drowned and semi-unconscious.
The lights of many vessels were
seen all around, but not one approached,
though after daylight a steamer and two
fishing vessels passed. Their crews,
however, did not notice the signals ot
the lifeboat. Finally, the waving of a
shirt from the boat attracted the atten
tion of the crew of the fishing smack
"Wildflower, which rescued the surviv
ors with extreme difficulty.
"After the collision the Crathie passed
under the stern of the Elbe and pro
ceeded on her course without paying
any heed to the cries of the people on
board of the sinking steamer. "
A preliminary inquiry was held into
the sinking of the Elbe. The surviving
officers said in substance:
"The Elbe was proceeding on a south
sonthwest course' down the channel,
steaming about 15 knots. When about
43 miles off 3Ierschelliug lightship a
vessel was eeen approaching two ami a
half points off the port below. This ves
sel's course was apparently west-northwest.
According to the rule of tat- rm
at sea the vessel should have por:e-.i her
helm and passed under the Elbe's stem.
Both vessels, however, kept their courses
and struck. The shock of the concus
sion was very slight. "
'The officers of the North German
Lloyd Steamship company have given
for publication the following figures as
the total number of persons on board
the Elbe:
Fifteen first cabin, 31 second cabin,
two going from Bremen to Southamp
ton, 187 steerage and 149 crew, of whom
20 are known to be saved, making a
total of 314 lost.
At least, that is the number missing
and there is very little hope entertained
- that any of those will eventually be
heard from alive. It is true, however,
that some Yarmouth and Lowestoft
fishing smacks, which are out on cruises
in the vicinity of where the Wildflower
picked up the Elbe's boat containing 20
survivors, have not yet returned to their
home ports, so there still remains the
possibility that one or more of them
may have rescued some of the unfortu
nates of the lost steamer.
Fifteen fishing smacks which sailed
near the spot where the Elbe lies have
arrived at Lowestoft. Not one reported
having seen any sign of the wreck or
passengers. Their reports almost ban
ished the last hope of finding the second
lifeboat. Another smack returning later
brought a boat s rudder and log line,
but there was nothing to indicate what
boat they were from.
The Crathie Leave the Elbe.
When the Crathie struck the Elbe the
shock was very slight. The engines of
the Crathie were reversed and she
backed out of the hole amidships in the
Elbe and the water rushed in. Surviv
ors say that rockets were sent np from
the deck of the Elbe before she went
down, but the Crathie paid no atten
tion to them and steamed away. . The
Crathie was not damaged much by the
collision. The officers of the Crathie
rsiort that the Elbe immediately disap
peared and they thought she had pro
ceeded, uninjured, on her way. The
Crathie steamed around the place of the
accident, but saw no boats containing
Confusion and Panlo on the Elbe.
Although the force of the collision
was not very grent, the passengers iu
the first and second cabins were awak
ened and heard the rushing waters.
Partially dressed they rushed np the
tompanionway and joined the panic
stricken, shivering people who hud pre
ceded them. Everything was confusion.
While women mid children were scream
ing and men rushing excitedly about,
the captain was shouting orders which
could not be heard. Attempts to loverf
the boats were delayed by frozen ropes
snd axes were used to chop the lifeboats
loose. When a boat was lowered it was
almost immediately capsized by the
waves or swamp 3d by too many passen
gers jumping into it. So far as known
only one lifeboat got away from the
sinking ship.
There were many Americans among
the lost passengers. Lieutenant Bran
son and wife of Oakland were drowned.

Countess Von Moltke, and was on her

fire which followed the explosion. The
members of the family were comfort

when suddenlv there was a terrific ex

the babe from its chair across the room. ;
The fragments of the stove flew about i
like a charge of canister and blazing
bits of wood rained fire in the room.
The residence was burned to the ground.

For a year or more past she had been
collecting canceled postage stamps and
friends from all over the United States
were sending them to her. In this way
she supported herself by selling stamps
to dealers. During the past year she
collected 1,000,000 stamps in this way,
for which she received 100. She had to
lie on her stomach all the time, and in
that uncomfortable jiosition she would
work day after day writing letters and
counting stamps that had been sent her,
but 6he was always bright and cheer

her a copy of the Washington Post,
which contained a notice that she was a
fraud and not an invalid. This notice
had the effect of breaking Ednee Grow

Tho attorney geiier:;l Ira written an
opinion which causes ,";reat consterna
tion among army and navy oilicers who
will undoubtedly U-.-t its legality in the
courts. Mr. Oiney decides that in mak
ing their returns for the income tax
they must include all allowances as pay
they receive from the government. This
means their quarters, fuel, forage and
mileage they receive when they travel
for the government. The officers are
licking now whether the same rule is to
bo applied to senators ami repn-senhi-tives
and other officers of th-; govern
ment. Congressman receive mileage and
an allowance for stationery and clerk
hire, and cabinet officers and other civil
officials have their expenses paid when
they travel for the government, and, to
go a little further, they insist that the
same rule should be applied to commer
cial travelers, who are equally allowed
their hotel bills and railroad fare. They
argue that if an allowance for traveling
expenses and for quarters is part of the
income of an army or navy officer it is
part of the income of a drummer who
lives at a hotel, and they will ask the
courts to so decide the question.
