LOST AT SEA.
Wreck of an Italian Vassal But oe
Survivor Ii9ft of Fogrteen-
Njcw Yokk, March 4. Plctro
Wallace, an Italian sailor, is in the
house of Life-saving Station, No.
37, on the eastern end of Coney
island, to-night, tle sole survivor
of a ship's crew of fifteen men.
All of Thursday night the ocean
raged against the Coney island
!each. The iife-saving crew,
under the command of Charles
Bevenee, were usually vigilant all
night. The first gn of disaster
tliat they discovered was from the
house of the Mercid boat club, a
sliort distance cast of the Oriental
hotel. It was about eight o'clock
in the morning.
During t lie night the sea hud
beaten a jwissage through the
beach and flooded the low laud
back of it. The whiuf of the
boat-house had been washed away,
leaving tin building entirely Mir
rouudod by water. Mm ray, the
janitor, and his wife had become
alMrmed, and signaled for relief.
A ortioii of the life saving crew
twk them oil" in a boat. On their
way back from the boat-house the
men descried an irregular black
mass tossing on the waves some
two or three miles from the shore.
A sp3r-glass showed it to be a por
tion of a wreck, and a man was
seen clinging to it.
The wrecker signalled to the
man that aid was at hand. Then
they ran their life-boats out into
the breakers and pulled for the
wreck. After a hard struggle they
got alongside. The- found it to
be a part of the poop-deck, with
the binnacle and mainmast of a
wreck. Tlie man was lashed to
the binnacle. Two of the crew
boarded the wreck, cut the lashing
and lifted the man into the life
boat. By this time the wreck had
dritcd within about a mile of the
Brighton beach hotel.
"When the life-boat was beached
the rescued man clambered out
with the rest, and tried to shove
the bqat ashore, lie shivered with
the cold, and talked to himself
word- uncomprehended by his
rescuers. They knew he was an
Italian, and troubled themselves
to learn no more until they made
him om for table in the station.
lie was thoroughly chilled and
greatly terrified. After leing
rubbed and revived by the warmth,
lie cemmunicated: he could speak
hardly a word of English, and
none of the crew knew Italian, so
the information came slowly. lie
wrote on a piece of wiper, first, the
name of tlie vessel to which he
belonged,the Ajace, then her port of
clearance. Antwerp. He wrote
the Captaiirs name, Morice, and
gave the number of the crew as
fifteen men. With little difficulty
he made his rescuers understand
that he had alone survived.
lie indicated that the vessel had
grounded, and that ten of his com
panions had been swept overboard,
lie fixed the time of the disaster
at four a. m. The life-saving crew
understood from him that he and
the other four men hart climbed
into the rigging of the mizzen
mast. The. ship began to break
up rapidly as soon as she struck
She was ballasted with iron. When
a fierce sea tore the deck from the
vessel, Sallace's comrades were
overcome with fear.
In describing what followed,
Sallace drew his knife, and alter
making deprecatory gestures and
shaking his head, to indicate that
he had tried to dissuade his com
rades from their purpose, he pulled
the knife across his throat, at the
same time uttering exclamations
of horror. The life-saving crew
knew from his expressive panto
mine, and the few words of expla
nation that tlie Italian could give,
that the other four sailors had com
mitted suicide in their despair.
All day long Sallace was press
ed for other details of the wreck.
When asked if some others of the
crew might not have escaped, be
shook his head emphatically no.
The other patrol watohed for tlie
bodies from tlie wrecked vessel
that might be washed asliore. and
last night the relief force scanned
tlie beach carefully, with the aid
of huge reflectors, but no bodies
were found. It is believed tliat
tlie bodies went out with the tidc
anil it was expected tlmt the high
tide at eleven o'clock last night
would lring thorn back.
Captain Beuensec and his men
were of the opinion that the bark
went ashore off llockaway, perhaps
further east. So far as they could
make out from tlie surviving sailor,
the captain of the Ajace did not
know where he was, and the ves
sel was being driven along in a
northwesterly course. Sallace
gave them to understand that the
vessel ami her crew had suffered
severely, ami that she went to
pieces almost a soon as she struck.
Ten men, accoiding to Sallace,
were swept overboard almost in
an instant. Capt. Morice was one
of the five who climbed into the
rigging of the mainmast. The
captain put on a life preserver.
The poor sailor evinced the
greatest horror in describing how
the four liad killed themselves
when the Krtion of the wreck
that they were on sliowed signs of
breaking up. He described again
and again his efforts to dissuade
them from suicide, and at the con
clusion each time sliook his head
mournfully. To-day Captain Ben
ensee will bring the sailor to the
Italian consul in this city.
TIkj Ajace sailed from Antwerp
for this port on December 17, 1SS0,
with a cargo of iron ami empty
kerosene barrels. She was a bark !
of 5GG tons burthen, 14-i feet in
length, 32 feet beam and 19 in
depth. She was built in Voltri in
1S72, and was owned in Genoa.
All the crew were Italians. Sal j
lace is about forty-five years' old, J
and has followed the sen all his life.

that in a majority of cases it ap

butters were not unwholesome,
