STORY OF SURVIVOR OF
Vivid Description of lb. Horror, ot

Who Was on the lllfated Vessel.
New York, May 23. The steamer
Korcna has arrived from Fort de
Prance, Martinique, having on board
two survivors of the steamer Itora
ima, lost In the St. Pierre disaster,
Ellery Scott, chief offlcor of the ill
fated vessel, and Charles Thompson,
assistant purser. From Scott, on the

rain of fire and hot mud. Captain
Muggah, standing upon the bridge,
shouted, "Heave away quickly, and
get up the anchor."
They had taken in but a few fath
oms of chain when a huge stream of
fiery lava raced down the moun
tain side and into the bay, shoving
the waters of the harbor back and
hurling the Roraima on her side.
The rush of water cleared the ship's
deck, tnking her deck works, boats,
and bulwarks all overboard. Scott
saw Captain Muggah swept away
with the wreckage of the bridge and
leaped from the forecastle head to
his assistance, but was immediately
dashed to the deck and trampled
under foot by the crew in their mad
rush for safety.
But for the action of two colored
steerage passengers he would have
perished with the others, burned to
death by the lava which poured in on
the vessel's deck, but these men seiz
ed him and dragged him into the
steerage, where by wrapping blank
ets around their heads they succeed
ed in escaping serious injury.
Meanwhile Thompson, the other of

Hartford, Conn., May 23. Much in
terest has been aroused in the report
of State Insurance Commissioner E.
L. Schofiold relative to secret or fra
ternal society insurance. The Com
missioner takes a decidedly pessi
mistic view of the matter, and his
statements attract all the more at

regarded as a banner state for nearly
every fraternal insurance organiza

that, while the Increase in assets and
decrease in liabilities in 1901 over
1900 would be taken to indicate a
prosperous condition of the organiza

increase in expense as compared
with the increase in membership and
the amount paid for death claims,

at hand, tho report continues, when
