will compel us to develop theu rr

pleaud to be able to record a steady
progress during the past year. In this
issne we give as far as possible a state

Survivors Promptly Cared for
by People of Eureka, Cal.
Eurek*. Cal., Jan. 3-Bafor* th*
hours of 4 and 0 o'olock Friday morning thsn occurred a marin* diuster,
about 11 mllu abraaat of Cap* Mendo-
clno, reiulting in th* SS. Walla Walla
going to the bottom, and perhapi 80
or mora llvu Ming Ion. Tht steamer
Walla Walla, in command ot Captain
Hall, left San Francisco at 11 o'clock
Wednesday morning, bound for Viotoria and Puget Sound. Aboard of ber
were 80 firat clau and 86 second class
passenger*. . With th* crew there
were about 166 souls, all told. Thursday night the weather wn* favorable,
though the sea was rolling high. About
midnight the weather conditions
changed and a fog began to riu. Second Officer Luke wu in command, tbe
���hill being about 4 o'olock. About
4:10 the passengers were suddenly
awakened by a terrific oraih op the
poit side. A Frenoh four-masted bark
had collided with the Walla Walla,
striking her juat forward of the captain's stateroom, penetrating a 14 foot
bole in hatch No. 3..
The officerp and passengers were
���oon on deck. Capt. Hall soon realised the condition of hii vessel. The
suddenness of the collision afforded
the officers and crew of the Walla
Walla no time to learn the name ol the
vessel that had atruck her. Tbe fate
ot ihe bark remains unknown. Whil.
it is believed bar forward rigging might
have been broken , it is, not likely her
hull suffered mnch damage.
Capt. Hall went .down with hie vei-
but was rescued after severe -struggle
in theeboppy sea.
Later-The identity ot Ihe French
bark which collided with and sank Ihe
SS, Walla Walla, I* known. She is the
French btrk Max, a four-masted iron
vessel of 1,563 tons, bound from Glasgow for San Francisco. Th* Max re.
ported being in collision with a larg*
pasaeniter sleamer off. Mendooino on
the morning of Jan. 3. . The Max had
three holu etove in her bow and her
stem was bent ,to port, but no liven
were lost on the bark. Ths Max left
Glaagow on Sept. 9 for San Francisco,
in ballast, and, a* is th* custom of Sun
Francisco bound ships, she bore in to*
wards Mendocino light to get bar bearings, and there *h* (truck and auuk
