Halifax, N. S., March 28.— The two
ocean steamers, the Parisian and the
Albano, whose 1,800 passengers were
saved from possible death at sea after
the collission between the two vessels
off the harbor’s mouth yesterday by a
thrilling 15-mile race for shallow water,
showed plainly today how serious was
the accident, the Parisian resting on
the bottom at her dock and the Al-
bano’s ’fore peak being full of water.
The Parisan, which came up the har
bor at 0 o ’clock last night with a gap
ing hole in her starboard side from the
Albano's sharp prow, filled gradually
during the night, and at dawn her
engine room had been flooded, her
fires extinguished, her lower deck was
awash and her keel resting in the mud.
A large, part of her cargo is damaged
by water, .but the bulk of the mail,
consisting of 400 sacks, was recovered
in good condition.

ers of the vessels as to the probable
cause of the collision are conflicting,
