the structure standing precariously on
Its corner posts with a great Jagged,
irregular hole 15 feet deep and reach
ing clear across the lot, a distance of
50 feet or more, beneath and' to the
north and south of the house. Had
the rush of water continued even Ave
moments longer nothing could have
Baved the house from being precipi
tated Into the gully beneath It. It Is
an old structure, frame, and would
surely have gone to pieces. It is In
imminent danger of going Into tho

down the canyon Is liable at any hour
to precipitate that catastrophe.
Storm on Upper McKay.
Rev. Robert DIvcn failed to meet
his Upper McKny creep appointment
at 3 p. m. Sunday, being caught out
In the violent rain, which made roads
entirely impassable and traveling dan
gerous. He preached nt Pilot Rock at
11 a. m. and was on his way to Upper
McKay when overtaken by the storm.
He avers that for a time the rainfall
was heavier than he ever before saw
It In any place or climate.
He had Just crossed McKny and Its
waters were never more quiet or clear
when tho storm broke, and the boul
ders began rolling and crashing. He
took to a safe ledge at one side of tho
road, and hung onto the lines and
his courage as best he could. Within
half nn hour the water was up to the
high water mail, and carrying every
imaginable kind of debris, which In.
eluded boulders a foot In diameter,
which came rushing down out of side
canyons from every direction.
Knowing that the roads to his des'
tlnatlon would all be equally lmpass
able, Mr. Dlven took across the res'
ervatlon for home. The water had
done queer things In places with the
soil ot uneven density and friability
While driving along in a perfectly
level place one of his horses stepped
Into a crevice four or five Inches wide
and dropped abruptly about four feet.
It was impossible to get the animal
out sideways, and It floundered along
for about a rod when the limit of the
scoured out place was reached and
the horse climbed to the surface. It
had fallen into a pocket made by the
washing out of a mass of loose soli
surrounded hy heavier dirt, leaving
an almost complete arch over a hole
several feet wide.
Mr. Dlven saw many evidences of

lnilon, July 5. T-ast Tuesday
morning the Danish steamer Norge.
which left Copenhagen June 22 for
New York, with nearly Sl0 emigrants
aboard, struck on ihe Isle of Itocknll.
about 200 miles off the webt coast of
Scotland, and all on board except 27
are thought to ha drowned.
Heavy weather caused the Norge
to run off her course When the ves
sel struck the reef the emigrants
wero below walling breakfast. Tho
vessel was quickly hacked oft the
rock, but the heavy seas rushed In
through a big vent in her bows, caus
ing the passengers to make a rush
for the deck nbove. The hatchways
were small and soon became clogged
with human beings
Boats Are Capsized.
The vessel began to go down al
most Immediately and eight boats
were quickly lowered. Into which
women and children were put. Out
of these eight boats six were caught
by the heavy seas, dashed against
the side of the sinking vessel and
their Inmates caught up and swept
Many emigrants on board the sink
ing ship grabbed life belts and
threw themselves overboard and were
drowned. Only three boats got safely
away from the Norge. The survivors
say that Captain Gundel stood until
the last on the bridge of the sinking
vessel and went down with the ship.
Second Boat Heard From.
Owing to the Norge sinking so sud
denly more than GOO emigrants wero
thrown Into the water. Such of these
as could swim tried to reach the
boats, but these were dreadfully
crowded to the point of tlanger, their
Inmates pushing the struggling
wretches back Into the sea. Practi
cally all of the occupants of the three
boats that got safely away from the
sinking ship were passengers and un
accustomed to handling a boat. One
of these three boats landed.
A dispatch fr.m Lloyd's signal sta
tion at Butt of Lewis, Scotland, this
morning states that the German tank
steamer Emlgl, which passed there
this morning, signalled that she had
aboard some castaways from the Dan
ish steamer Norge. The survivors
are probably those who got away In
the second boat that was separated
from that picked up by the trawler
Silvia. While saving this second boat
will reduce the list of loss of life,
there is little doubt but that fully 700
went down with the Norge. There Is
no trace of the third boat yet.
Thirty-two More Survivors.
Dispatches to Lloyd's from Storno
way says that the steamer Cernova
has landed 32 survivors of the Norge
near there, while the German steara
pr tfmioi Is off the harbor with 39
others. The Cernova has returned to
tho scene of the disaster, ine Buri
....no o fitnmmvav state that four
boats got away from the sinking ship
and that nearly 200 children were

i i hp u-nrKt in the history of trans-
Atlantic travel 693 passengers and a
crew of 100 being auoara. ui meiso
lens than 100 are known to have been
saved. In nationality the passengers
were composed of "S Danes, CS
Swedes, Sl'G Norwegians, 15 Finns
and 23ii Russians.
One of tho survivors from tho life
boat that was picked up by tho trawl
er In gnlng Ins version of the scoiio
says that when he reached the dock
after the shock, that the vessel was
half under water and rapidly sinking.
The boats that had been launched
wero rapidly filling with tho frighten
ed emigrants, who were fighting for
a place In one of the small craft.
An otllcer succeeded In getting tho
six women and one girl Into tho big
lifeboat and then told the men to get
In. This o fflcer then took charge of
the boat, but after safely getting away
from the sinking ship, and finding
that the boat was overloaded, he
jumped Into tho sea and attempted
to reach another boat, but was drown
ed In the swirling waters.
Separated by the Tide.
The escaping boats rowed together
for some time, but finally became sop.
arated owing to the strong tide drift'
lng them away from each other. The
trawler Silvia had been on a fishing
cruise around the Hebrides nnd on
this trip she steamed farther west
than usual, and thus fell In with the
