Wood's statement of the- Elder's con
nection with the rescue of the survivors
from the San Pedro:
' ."We arrived opposlts the San Pedro
about I o'clock Sunday morning on our
way from San Pedro to Portland. The
weather was slightly roggy and I hap
pened to be on deck. I was up earlier
than usual, having some sick passen-
Eers to look after. When we sighted
is disabled lumber boat Captain Jes
ses at once began righting' the Elder
to lay to and render aid.
"It did not take long to determine
what the matter was. and then the fog
began to lift.
r'I shall never forret the terrible
sight that met my vision.-- Of course
we on board the Elder did not see any
thing to compare with the tearfulness
of the situation, but even what we saw
was enough. I need hardly add that
we ail set to 'with a will, and I think

In fact, there was no place for any of
us te go to nea n we so aesirea. out
tnen mere was too mucn to do.
"Fortunately -we had on board when
we sighted the wreck three physicians
and the Injured were given all the aid

nstead of stewardess I turned trained
tiurse, and the doctors aboard were so
kind and patient -All regular- passen-
frers gave up staterooms and the social

course, we bed none.

"The setting of broken llmha 'was
