Relieve Distress in One Province.
St. Petersburg. Oct. 16.—(Corres
pondence of the Associated Press.)—
It can now b forseen that the wide
spread crop failures, the consequent
famine and the relief work of the
government and of philanthropists
will be engrossing subjects in this
empireduring the approaching winter
The word famine is not used in the
official publications, which speak of
famine-stricken districts as "places
that are in an unfavorable condition
as respects the harvests,’’ but the
facts that are freely admitted show
that the struggle to keep the peasant
population alive until a new harvest
will l>e harder than has been known
The extent of the
disaster can be vaguely surmised from
an inspection of the government re
port, which names the province of
Viatka as among those where there
was an "insufficient harvest,” and
which gives the amount of govern
mental assistance required at 782,000

Struck in a Dense
Fog—-Passengers Not in
Vancouver, B. C., Oct. 15.—In a
dense fog the Canadan Pacific steamer
Ha Ting, from Skagway to Vancou
ver, went ashore yesterday afternoon
at Tucker Bay, Jarvis Island, and is
now hard and fast on the rocks. The
place is a small rocky islet lying to
the northeast of Lasquettl Island, at
the entrance to Sabine Strait, 49
miles north of Vancouver.
When the steamer went ashore Cap
tain Gosse was on watch, and first
officer Newrotsos was on the bridge
with the master of the vessel. The
fog at the time was so dense that it
was impossible to see 10 feet in any
The Ha Ting had on
board 170 passengers, of whom 130
were first class and 40 second class.
There was no panic when the steamer
struck, and the passengers were soon
made aware that there was no danger
to be apprehended. After examina

that she could not get off the rocks
by her own efforts, the captain started

The Ha Ting a Total Loss.
Vancouver, B. C., Oct. 15.—The
latest reports from the steamer Ha
Ting are to the effect that a big hole
has been discovered in the steamer’s
bottom. It is stated that at high tide
the stern is under seven feet of water.
The passengers have all been landed
on adjacent islands. Canadian Pa
cific officials here have advices to the
effect that the Ha Ting will be a total
loss. Captain Gosse, who was in
command, was considered a most care
ful and successful navigator. This is
his first accident.
