Driven Back Repeatedly, Heroic
Rescuers Save 1 0 Men, Many of
Whom Cling to the Rigging
for Sixty Hours.
LONDON, Oct 19. After being for
48 hours face to face with death, 13
men of the crew of the French ship
Leon XIII, from Portland. - Or., wrecked
near the village of Qullty, at one of
the most dangerous points on the coast
of Clare, were rescued. Determined
heroism saved them. '
The captain, who was suffering from
a broken leg, and the remaining eight
men were taken off the vessel 12 hours
later by boats from H. M. 6. Arrogant,
which arrived from Berehaven.
It was amid scenes of the wildest
enthusiasm that the remaining nine
men were brought ashore. One of the
crew said he had never experienced
such weather as that which prevailed
when the ship struck the rocks.
The only thing that the men bad to
cat during the long hours of their vigil
on the wave-swept wreck was a few.
handfuls of wheat from the cargo.
Assailed by Bitter Gale.
The vessel went ashore on Seafffeld
Rocks, and for a night, a day, another
night, and the greater part of a sec
ond day, the shipwrecked seamen were
exposed to the fury of the gale and to
biting storms of rain and hall. They
were without food, too, as all the pro
visions were in the after part of the
ship, which was submerged.
Coast guards, Ufeboatmen, and fish
ermen in the canvas-covered canoes in
use on the Clare Coast made repeated,
attempts to reach the wreck, only to be
beaten back by the fierce seas.
Throughout one night fires were
burned on shore to cheer the . ship
wrecked mariners, and in the morning
tho rescue work was resumed.
But the rescuers could not get close
to the doomed ship, and the crew, re
duced to desperate straits, began to
construct rafts. At noon one of these
was launched with two men on board,
and reached the boats of the rescuers.
Then during the afternon and evening
other rafts were launched and 13 men
got ashore. The sea ran so high that
the rafts had to be towed to the beach
by heroic fisherman's canoes, it being
impossible to take the shipwrecked
men on board the rescue boats.
Crowds Cheer the Rescuers.
One of the canoes capsized during
the afternoon, but all the fishermen in
it were picked up.
Crowds gathered on the beach and
cheered again and again as the French
men were saved and brought to land.
It was a grim fight with the sea that
was waged off the coast of Clare. For
48 hours the 22 men on board the
doomed Leon huddled in the bow of
the ship, clinging to the rigging, while
rescuers repeatedly made fruitless at
tempts to reach them.
The Leon struck a reef only 23)
yards from the mainland in a direct
line, but a big barrier of rock ran be
tween her and the mainland, and the
only possible approach for the rescuers
was by a circuitous journey through
a mile of sea lashed into fury by a
fierce Atlantic gale.
First of Crew Saved.
The gale had somewhat subsided,
and the weather proving more favor
able for the operations of the life
boatmen and coast guards, the rescues
were effected after much strenuous
work. .
The rescuers' task was, however,
both perilous and difficult, for the sea
was still rough.
When the- 13 members of the crew
were brought ashore they were found
to be in. . a . terrible state from their
prolonged exposure on the doomed ves
sel, but their wants were immediately
attended to.
The commander-in-chief of the At
lantic fleet dispatched H. M. S. Arro
gant to the scone, in response to a
telegram from the chief naval officer
at Queenstown.
During the night the doomed vessel
on which the unhappy seamen were
huddled together was swept almost
continuously by heavy seas.
Keep Watch by Fires.
Those on shore, powerless to lend aid,
lhowed their sympathy by lighting big
fires, which were kept burning all
night long to cheer the shipwrecked
The grim hours of darkness did not
pass without several gallant attempts
by fishermen to reach the wreck, but
always they were defeated by the At
lantic's wind and sea. '
The Leon, XIII. which belonged to
Nantes, was a full-rigged steel ship
of 1948 tons. She left Portland, Or.,
with a cargo of wheat last April, and
after a voyage of 165 days arrived at
Queenstown, where she was ordered
to Limerick.
. The scenes connected with the res
cues were of the most exciting char
acter. As early as 7 o'clock the hardy fish
ermen of Qullty had resumed their
efforts to reach the wreck. At that
hour a canoe manned by three men
put to sea. only, however, to be beat
en back by the terrific seas.
Another attempt was then made by"
the coast guard crew to reach the
wreck In their smalt boat, but their
efforts were also unavailing, and one
of the crew was swept overboard, be
ing, however, picked up subsequently.
From the shore it could be seen that
some of the Frenchmen were con
structing a raft, and at noon an inef
fectual attempt to launch it was made.
Many Thrilling Incidents.
Soon afterward it was launched
again, with two men on board, and this
time It rode the waves in safety, and
drifted shoreward. Canoes at once nut
out to meet it, and, amid a scene of
great excitement, the two French sail
ors were taken into the boats and
safely landed.
In the afternoon, when . further
canoes put out to sea, there was an
other thrilling incident. One of the
little canvas-covered boats, in attempt
ing to take on board a sailor who had
swum off from the wreck, was cap
sized, and all the occupants thrown
into the surf. Women on the beach
began to wail plteously as they saw
their breadwinners struggling in tho
The lifeboat, with the coast guards
and some local volunteers, however,
immediately prooeeded to the rescue.

and managed to pick up not only the
crew of the upturned canoe, but the
French sailor who was swimming. The
rescue was loudly cheered by the im
mense crowd of people along the shore,
and, nothing daunted, the crew of the
submerged canoe again proceeded with
their efforts to reach the Frenchmen.
The men on the wreck were known
to be in a pitiably drenched and fam
ished condition, having been without
food of any kind for 48 hours.
More rafts were launched from the
wreck, and by this means the number
of the rescued was brought up during
the afttrnoon to 13
. The rescue work was most perilous,
and, in some instances, the fishermen
found it impossible to take the men
on board from the rafts, being, com
pelled to tow them astern until the
beach was reached.
One of the survivors said that there
were provisions on the vessel, but they
were all aft, and were, therefore, to
tally, under the water.
The captain's injuries, he added, were
caused by his being dashed against
some ironwork by a heavy sea.
The Leon, which was bound for Lim
erick, went out of her course during a
thick haze at night. The vessel is
rapidly breaking up.

Grand Duke Paul Disgraced by Czar
Because lie Loved lovely
Madame Pistolkors.
PARIS, Oct. 19. Little Grand Duch
ess Marie Paulovna, whose betrothal
to Prince Williani of Sweden has
been announced, expects to come
to Paris on her wedding trip
to see her father. Grand Duke
Paul, whom his nephew, the Czar, sent
into exile five years ago because he
had elopted with the wife of General
Pistolkors, of St. Petersburg.
It will be a happy reunion between
father - and daughter, for the Grand
Duchess Marie has always been pas
sionately devoted to her father, al
though the Czar has kept them sepa
rated almost all of her life. But once
married to Prince William of Sweden,
she can see her father whether the
Czar wishes it or not.
Grand Duchess Marie lost her.mother.
Princess Alexandria of Greece, when
she was 17 months old, and she was
then taken away from her father, al
ready noted for his numerous affairs of
the heart, . and given to the father's
sister-in-law. Grand Duchess Serglus.
Two or three times a, year she was per
mitted to see her father, but Grand
Duchess Serglus always hated him, and
made every effort to turn the daughter
against bim.
But Marie often pleaded with her
aunt to be allowed to go to her father,
and even sought the assistance of the
Czarina to Influence the Czar to re
move the ban. of exile against him.
t Grand Duke x-aul never was a favor
ite at Court, as he was entirely too
critical of his undersized and - timid
nephew, the Czar of all the Russiaa.
So when Paul took Mme. Pistolkors to
a state ball in 1892 and she appeared
before the Czar wearing the famous
jewels of the late Grand Duchess Paul,
there was a tremendous sensation, and
an excuse for drastic measures. '
General Pistolkors came forward and
explained that his wife had received
the jewels with his knowledge and con
sent, but the court master of ceremo
nies was directed to tell Mme. Pistol
kors to leave the ball, and the next
day Grand Duke Paul was ordered to
leave Russia.
He did so, but .he took Mme. Pistol
kors with him, and also the jewels, al
though he had been informed that the
gems were state property and must be
returned to the Czar. '
General Pistolkors was accommodat
ing and promptly divorced his wife.
Grand Duke Paul spends a great deal
of time at Nice and Cairo, as well as
Paris. He has about 11,000,000 In his
own right, and lives in splendid state.
His morganatic wife, who has the
Bavarian title of Countess Hohenfelsen,
conferred three years ago, has a life
story that reads like a fairy syory.
When she married her first husband it
was a love mafich between a young girl
of the middle class and a Lieutenant of
fairly good family, but no money, and
no prospects. Then all at once a dis

CENTRALIA, Oct. 2. (Special.)
W. H. Ramthun, a man "over 70 years
of age, committed suicide yesterday by
hanging. ' He lived alone. He had told
Charles Smith, a livery stable man,
who lived next door, that if he saw a
rag hanging out of his window he,
Ramthun, would be either sick or in
need of help. About 8 o'clock ae Smith
was going to work he saw a rag hang
ing from Ramthun's window. He went
over to the house and looked In the
window. In the doorway leading into
a room In the rear of the front room
he saw Ramthun hanging. Instead o(
entering the room Smith ran for Mar
shal Clark and the two entered the
room together. Ramthun was sus
pended from a large spike driven in the
wall over the door. Around his nee
was a, rope, made of cloth. The body
was warm and the man could not have
been long dead. When Smith first saw
the body it was swinging, and the
probabilities are that Ramthun could
have been revived had Smith cut ths
body down as soon as he discovered It.
Ramthun was born in Germany and
came to Centralla In 1888. He leaves
