CAPTAIN A0 NINE MEN SAVED
Vstsel Wat Headtd rout With Big
Cargo of Lurnbtr When Gale
NEWI'ORT, Or., May 3. Eleven of
the officers and crew of the steam
schooner Minnie E. Kelton, lumber
laden, from Aberdeen, Wash., to Han
Francisco, were killed or drowned as
a result of a gala Friday night. The
steamer is lying at anchor half wrecked,
about a mile off shore, between Yaquina
Head and Cape FnnlwntbcT. Cpts.in

Friday 'tb Kelton ran into a strong
head wind, which increased a the day
proceeded, until by midnight it wat
blowing a bard gale. Th vessel eon
tinually shipped Large volumes of water
and labored heavily in tbe ea. Tbt
rough weather continued until the vet
sel reached a point eight mile soutn-
west of Yaquina, when th deckload
shifted and started the bulkhead of tb
fireroom, and tbe vessel began filling
from the bunkers and engine-room to
the bold. The pumps proved unavailing
against the inrush of water.
When she had drifted north of Ya
quina Head tbe captain, seeing tb
hopelessness of bis vessel's condition,
ordered the craft abandoned, and di
rected that the lifeboat, which was
large enough to hold the entire crew,
be lowered. While engaged in clearing
the lifeboat, the vessel suddenly shipped
a tremendous sen, which swept overboard
he Uecklond of lumber, and with it
the after deckhouse, both bouts and 11
of the men. Tlio lifeboat was pitched
onto the flouting lumber, one end bang
ing at a sharp angle.
in climbing into the boat the men
capsized ber. They succeeded in right-
ng ber again, and about seven sailors
imbed in, leaving four others on the
wreckuge. The captain ordered the
oat to pick these men up. but for some
reason the order was not obeyed. With-
few minutes the lifeboat and the
wreckage with the unfortunate on
board, drifted away from the Kelton.
Jvy this time the steamer bad drifted
lose to shore, and Captain MeKenna
let go his anchors in hopes they would
hold bim off shore. Shortly afterward
squall sunt out from view tbe lifeboat
and tbe men on the wreckage. None
of them was seen again until three of
