to jtt trie two dead men who were

1'hc r.'seued men were taken to a
nearoy noute where they were put to

and he was sure there were no more ,

All tiie ooats records and papers are

fad tnat were then known was sent'
to tne 'jennan consul at Soattle, by
Shentr Crenshaw, soon after Uic men
were brought ashore.
Captain Westphal stuted that as soon
as the boat began to tip and feink tnot
of the men either jumped overboard or
went into the rimrinjra whore sure
death awaited them.
From tho first, second and third
mates who deserted the vessel just be
fore she went down, and who apeak
very broken Iinijlihh, information whb
secured which lead some to believe that
the aoat tipped because the bullast
which was left in her was not evenly
distributed, but was mostly on one sidi
of the boa. It is said that the boat
contained about 800 tons of ballast,
;i5U tons having been taken out of her.

the cause of the terrible disaster.
