to me thatjtho laly tank. .1 kept tho
bar by me. When I climbed into tho
bolt it was filled iith water, to tho cap"
tain made ns all git "in the bottom so
ihit we wonld bo no weight on tho boat.
The water was then np to onr necks.
Just then Leslie Baker and a little 12
yeiroldboy named Gny Bent ' carre
Hosting over to non a mast that hud
boen lost ont of the life boat. We had
an oar and tho bcatiwnin made another
b' the mat, and with the assistance of
the oar I had caved we managed alter
14 honrs to reach the shore one halt
mile south of Port Orford. We could
not (03 a star, all night, and any
momnt we expected to be pitched on
the rocks. Jaetat the break of day
we saw two islands, and wo felt confi
dent that tho shore was not far away.
Bad '.t not beon for the captain a::d
tho chief officer not one of ns would
hive been saved. The were cool and
deliberate throughout it all,
The following sworn statements were
made before the coroner's jury:
First Officer Brnce Ship struck at
4:10 p. m. on Oct, 19. I was on the
bridge at time of strike. I stopped the
ship. Capt. Mclntryre came on the
bridge right after and called all hands
on deck to lower boats in case it was nee
pessary. Captain took ?charga of the
first boat leaving. The reason be did
so was at my request. I think the
captain did all in bis power to eave the
lives of the crew and paseengers.
John Druscoll, oiler Was on watch
when ship struck. I feft ship strike and
came on deck. It was 20 minutes after
ward before I got permission or orders
to go on deck. I do not know who it
was, but some one Seal led out, "all
bandBontof engine room," Whon I
came up out of engine room two boatB
were lowered and one hanging the davits
turnod over. I left tho ship on a raft.
There wan one raft and one we made
impromptu. Could Jnot tell how (one
after ship sUuch (ill I left htr. Ship
was afloat when we left her and pulled
away as we were afraid of the suction
when eho wnt down. Biionld think it
was one half hour after the strike. t
saw the raft we made after the ehip
went down, nnd sh was to the west
ward of us and wo were close to it one
time. When I caino on deck could see
more than 200 yards, Plnglno v as Btop
ped when we struck and started up
again afterwardr. It was after tho
boat left the ship, the mate ewld. "I
will try and get her in as close to shore
aa 1 can," Shu im.st havo rtin about
fifteen mlu'jteH toward shore. There
was two inon Kwwm from the raft we
made' to tho one wo were La.

ehip Btruch 1 was in my berth. I came

body scorned to have charge. I helped

one oar And wo tried to pick up nil 1 00
li'io bin. I ld not kno' ilcetiMd,

cnplalu did nil lit- coil hi to save lives.
Ho did no'i (to out Irom Port Oxford to
look for raft for I think ho was worn
ont. Ito was up all nltfht llrtt nlisht
coming down ti rlvor nnd next nluht

F'rat I paw olhim was when I raw him
in the small boat. I saw auotticr bout
uiriitn tnori instance away wnen we
rero in davits. T'-t-rl? wore live paien
iters In tho boat nnd the boat turned
over when wo struck water. When 1
wine up I sot in the boat again. The

or, they toll me, one ropv wtnt through
the blocks and the hook came lo on
thoothor dnit. Did not reo any one
with life preserver on. I wont to et
one for a lady nndcouUt not find any.
John MeKeowu, oiler Wis in b-d
when the thin struck. Got down In
engine room 10 minutes later. Was
ro'a"l on a raft when I came on dt-ck.
Do uot know who was in command of
tire "hip. When I came up on d c
the KAti had left the ship nnd we hti'
to work KOttlng rafts rvndy and oyr
bord. Tho matueajd, "Boys, get the
rafts ready ; ah will yt down in a few
momenti." When I came up out of tl-
engine room the bodti wercpoue tnd
only one raft remained ami it would not
hold all the eople. so we had to make
another raft. The steamer did not blow
any whistles after she struck. The cap
tain co'tld not havo stayed lone, aa lie
was gone when I cime np out of the en
gine room. The mate had ship started
and tried to run for the beach.
The coroners jnry'called by E. W. Jen
sen acting enronor, tohold an inquest on
ho body of Chas. E. Ilnson, who di t
Ja the life raft, alter giving their find-
41154 ai to namo of decoased and cause
f death, add Uo following: "We the
indersigncd further find from the evi
lence that Capt. J. B. Mclntrye wat--riminally
