was fine, the moon was shining and
both vessels were steering absolutely
clear of each other. Suddenly tha
Primus, when about 450 feet from the
Hansa, put her rodder hard a port and
crossed the bows of the latter.
"This mistake," continues the state

Hanaa to Uke, namely, to go full speed

No storm had been forecasted. Almost

sistible wind, apparently in tbe nature
of a whirlwind, came up from the
southwest, and in an instant the waters
of the harbor were converted into a
seething cauldron, frail boats were
capsized, while the etaunchest vessels
at anchor were violently rocked.
A careful estimate today shows that
200 houses were unroofed during the
storm. The roof of the William street
Independent Methodist church was
lifted high in the air and blown over
the roofs of other houses a distance of
150 feet. The stone spire of the Holy
