thlna; on Deck Swept to Destruction
In the Middle or th Weht.
Greenock, r Scotland, Feb. ll.-Tho
steamer Pomeranian arrived here today
after a terrible experience. During the
heavy storm, her first and second officer
two stewards, two seamen and Ave pass
engers were washed overboard . and
drowned. he captain was dashed apalnst
the bulwarks and killed. -The
Pomeranian encountered boister
ous weather Immediately after leaving
port. It was thought that the wind would
eoon blow itself out but Instead of abat
ing, the gale Increased in severity until
on the day of the disaster, the 4th of
February, dawned with a frightful gale
raging and a tremendously high sea run
ning. The hatches were battened down
and covered with tarpaulins, the ventil
ators turned to the leeward, and every
precaution dictated by good seamanship
hr.d been taken to prevent the water
getting below.- Several seas were Bhipped
but they did no damage. Suddenly, a tre
mendous sea reared its crest a short dis
tance ahead of the steamer and she
plunged down a wave and before She
could rise, th sea came over her star
board bow and tons of green water; aft,
almost at the same time, the falling wave
astern came aboard the deck. The saloon,
chart house, bridge, and boats were
smashed In pieces and partly washed
overboard. The deck was covered .with
an almost Inextricable mass of wreckage
and the utmost confusion reigned. . At
first, the full extent of the disaster was
not known. The steamer began to pay off
before the wind and sea, and It was at
once . see that the quarter must have
been carried away. When the sea boarded
her, every man about the deck who saw
it coming, grabbed hold of stanchions or
anything else that was convenient, and
was due to this action that the loss of
life was not much larger than it was,
For a time, almost consternation pre
vailed, but this gave way to a feeling of
sadness when It was found that so many
lives were lost, with Captain Dolzlel fa
tally Injured and unconscious In the cab'
In, the command devolved upon the first
officer. When the chart room was carried
away, the charts, sextants and quadrants
In fact everything absolutely necessary
to the navigation of the ship, went with
It. The binnacle box and compass on the
bridge, were also gone overboard, and
had it not been that the after pompass
remained, it la doubtful if tne steamer
would have reached port for many days
yet. The situation of affairs was terrible.
The first officer called: y Remaining olft
cers of the steamer for "consultation and
it waa decided to put about and return
to Greenock. This was at once done and
without any Instruments with, which to
take observations, the average had to
be made entirely by dead reckoning, and
progress was necessarily slo-,

He Doesn't Think the Financial Situation
-, Is Critical. '
New York, Feb. 11. Secretary of the
Treasury Charles Foster In an Interview
tonight regarding the financial situation,
said:- . ; ;
I do not think the Situation crltioa!
enough to warrant the Issue of bonds.
The banks of New York, today, have
600,000 of gold, and they are ready a
any time to give It to the United State,
In exchange for greenbacks. I don't think
the failure t repeal the Sherman sliver
act will result in" driving gold out of th?
country. The government is in a position
to redeem all its promises, but I think
the gold reserve ought to be increased."
"Is there any way of stopping the ship
ment of gold abroad?" he was asked.
"Nonej, that I am aware of," he replied.

They had In their possession Canadian
naturalization papers showing that they

perhaps be deemed a breach of the treaty
between the two countries.

London, Feb. 11. In the commons to
day the queen's Bpeech was approved by
a vote of 234 to 119..
If defeat comes to Mr. Gladstone, It
will bo through the Irish faction, and he
seeks to avoid that by putting forward
at once the promise of half a dozen meas
ures that he. holds would help him in
a general election. The new Home Rule
bill, as It Is given out, Is drawn with an
astonishing detail of precaution. First,
there Is to be on Irish legislative body
empowered to make, amend and repeal
laws for the peace, order and good gov
ernment of Ireland." Then there Is re
served for the Imperial Parliament the .
power to enact laws effecting the status
or dignity of tho Crown, or the succession
to the Crown, or a regency; the making
of war or peace; trtb urmy. navy, -militia,
volunteers, or other military or njival
forces, or the defense of tho realm; treat
ies itind. wh relations with foreign
states, of the relations between the vari
ous parts of her Majesty's dominions;
dignities or titles of honor; prize or booty
of war, and many other things, including
coinage, legal tender, patents, transmis
sion of mails and telegrams; and there
Is a sub-clause that retains to the Im
perial Parliament five years' control over
land legislation. This is meant to help
Mr. Gladstone over the fence, as It were.
Then the Irish Letflslnture Is restrained
from pasHsing any law respecting the es-
iuujjnmm'(H ot reiigiuiii or prumimiiiK
the free exercise thereof, or Imposing any
privilege or conferring any disability on
account of religious belief, or abrogating
jr derogating from the right to estab
lish or maintain any place of ucnomlua
clonal education or any denominational
institution or charity, or prejudicially af
fecting the right of any child to attend
a school receiving publl: money without
attending the religious iimtructlon at that
school, or Imparlng, without either the
leave of her Majesty In Council first ob
tained or on address presented by tho
legislative body of Ireland, or the consent
of the corporation Interested, the rights,
property or privileges of any existing
corporation Incorporated by royal charter
or local and general act of Parliament,
or from enacting any legislation changing
the terms of the Home Rule act, except
In so f&r as the act Is declared to be al
terable by the Irish Legislature.
This Is meant for the reassurance of
North Ireland. Much use Is made of tho
shadowy, power of tho Queen, who Is to
believe, If she will, that she has as much
power over the Irish legislature as over
the Imperial Parliament. The Lord Lieu
tenant Is to give or withhold the consent
of her Majesty to bills, under tha direc
tion of her Majesty. Instead of abolish
ing the office of Lord Lieutenant, it Is
rather magnified. Is this treating Ireland
like Scotland and Wales? Thei-e are to
be two distinct houses of the Legislature,
and disagreements are 10 m reierrea 10
a Joint committee, and may at last be
referred to the people "a popular refer
endum" The Upper House is to be of
103 members, 75 elected, the rest "peerage
memberal' and the elective members
must have 'an Income of $1,000 a year from
property, and each must own or occupy
some land or tenement of the net annual
value of $125 or more. There are to be
the same number of Irish members of
the Imperial Parliament as of the Irish
Legislature, and the aume man may bo
a member of both bodies. If the Queen
announces a state of war, the Irish Legis
lature Is restrained from passing any
vote, resolution, address er bill for th.,
raising or appropriation for any purpose
of any part of tho public revenue of Ire
land, or of any tax, duty or Impost, ex
cept In pursuance of a recommendation
from her Majesty signified through the
Tllot Jones, of Vancouver, was In Seat
tle a short time Wednesday, having come
over with the bark Sabrlno, from Elver
pool to .Nanalmo with a general cargo,
and under charter to load lumber at Port
Blukely. The captain of the Sabrlno took
sick and had to be removed to a hospital
In Vancouver. The bark was In tow of
the tug Wanderer, and being In very light
ballast, Jones said he thought at times
she was 'going to capsize from the fore
of the gale and seas. The Wanderer was
almost a solid cake of Ice. He heard
that the rumor of the wrecking of the
American ship Kennebeck had been ron
flrmed but could not furnish particulars.
The report first came through the Indi
ans, who had said she was ashore in
Clayoquot sound, but afterward it was
tatcd to have been in Carctay ew.i.
