San Francisco, April 13— No stranger
disaster ever happened to a vessel than
the aooident which betel the British
ship Blairmore at 7 o’clock this morn­
ing. W hile riding at anchor in M is­
sion bay, one mile east of the Union
iron works, the vessel was struck by a
violent squall, whioh, together with
the sw ift flood tide, threw the raft on
her starboard side, capsized her com­
pletely and sank her in less than five
Fifteen seamen struggled in the w a­
ter, while six were couiiued in the ves­
sel’s hold, und were probably pinned
down by the fallin g dunnage used to
hold the ship's ballast in place. The
imprisoned sextet never readied the
deck, as did their comrades engaged
with them in handling ballast below,
and their bodies aie imprisoned in the
the hull.
The Blairmore’s mast lies level with
the bay bottom, under seven fathoms
of water, and not a sight of the sailors'
sunken tomb is visible above the
waves. Here and there on the surface
of the water, near the scene of the cal­
amity, is a piece of d rift from the
wreck, but beyond this the vessel and
men have been completelyswallowed up.
The unfortunates who lost their
lives were: T. Ludwig, first mate;
Henry Clark, able seaman; Roland
Biegle, apprentice; G. lienebaum, able
seaman; H. isiustrand, watchman; Sam
Kerry, steward. The latter was shipped
here and is a native of Brooklyn, N. Y.
The balance of the men on board were
those seamen usually held to stand by
the vessel after she discharges her
cargo and is awaiting another.
The regular formast hands were all
discharged on the arrival of the vessel
from Newcastle two months ago. The
squall that caused the disaster was the
most severe experienced on the south
arm of the bay for years. The wind
was so severe that a number of ships
anohored near the Blairmore signalled
for tugs to move them up the bay.
The flood tide working at the keels of
the ship had a tendency, being counter
to the wind, to upset hulls nut weight­
ed with a cargo.
