Corunka, Spain, Nov. 16. Tho
British man-of-war Lapwing brought
'the survivors of her majesty's ship
Serptut to Cornnna to-day. A cor
respondent of the United Press
boarded tho vessel and obtained an
interview with the fortunate men.
Barton was tho name of tho first
one questioned. He said that tho
disaster to tho Serpent occurred at
1030 o'clock r. M., Monday. The
night was a nasty ono, but there was
no fon. Tho rock on which the vessel
struok was covered by water and
couldn't be seen. All on board were
below, except the officers of the deck
and. six watchmen. They all rushed
up on feeling tho shock, but no panic
resulted and tho orders of the officers
wore promptly obeyed. The large
boat was soon lowered but almost in
stantly smashed to piecc3 among the
rookg and tho occupants perished.
It was useleas to lower tho other boam
and all efforU to throw a cablo ashoro
failing, tho situation was a hopeless
one. The men wero constantly be
ing washed overboard by heavy sea".
Burton said that ono wave washed
twelve men overboard in a group.
After an hour of this terriblo experi
ence, tho captain gave tho men leave
to abondon tho ship and savo them
selves as they thought best Burton
jumped overboard wearing a life belt,
sucu as all the watchmen had on. Mo
did not see anyone follow him. He
swam for tho shore and was threo
hours fighting the waves but finally
managed to get to a spot sheltered by
rocks whoro the water wa3 calmer
and he was able to swim ashoro.
He was completely exhausted and
his legs somowhat bruised from con
tact with the rocks. It was pitch
dark. Ho rested for some time and on
starting to walk inland he met a com
rade named Luton, with whom he
walked until they came to a village
two miles from the wreck. The peo
ple there conveyed them to Oamann
Burton is quite"well now. He assisted.
at Oamarin, in identifying such of the
bodies as were in recognizable condi
tion. Luton and the third survivor, Gould,
were too ill to be on deck, and the cor
respondent found them in bed below.
Luton sat up in bed and chatted
brightly. He confirmed Burton's
story. He himself was washed over
board half an hour after tho shock.
He had no belt on, and devoted his
strength to trying to avoid the spots
where he heard the sea breaking on
the rocks. After an hour and a half
'of this struggling he reached calm
water and landed on a sandy beach.
He then first noticed that a piece of
flesh had been torn from hi3 leg. Ho
could not tell how the injury occurred,
as he had not felt any pain before,
but then every step- was tortura He
is now improving rapidly.
Both Barton and Luton believe
that the Serpent was diverted from
her course on account of the weather.
The moment that Cape Yilano light
was sighted the vessel struok the
rocks. The light was very weak.
Barton thinks the Serpent sunk soon
alter ho left it. Gould is still suffer
ing from tho "effects of the severe ex
perience and is very feverish. He 13
not allowed to talk to visitors.
When the Lapwing left the scene
of the wreck, forty-eight- bodies had
been recovered and buried. Many of
them wero unidentified. A majority
of tho victims were not drowned, but
were killed by dashing on the rooks.

at Arkalon, ten miles west of this city
and Mrs. John Weitzel, wife of an
agent for a money loaning company
had eloped last aight
The husband of the missing woman
returned this morning after a week's
absence. He discovered that his resi
dence had been broken into during
the night, his valuables stolen, and
that his office had also been visited by
burglars. The safe was blown open
and robbed of about 10,000 in cash
and notes representing $5,000.
Vory few people have any idea of
the magnitude ot the new steel bridge
now being built across the Columbia
river, at Vancouver, by the Union Pa
cific Kailway Company. It will be
constructed entirely of steel and will
be 6,000 feet from end to end. It will
be made "wide enough to admit of a
double track being laid and will be a
two-story structure, similar to tho
one across the Willamette at
Portland, the upper part be

motor lines. The bridge will be built
ten feet above the highest water ever
recorded in the river, and will be forty
feet above low--water mark. The draw
