The Premier left Port Townsend about fof Seattle, in a heavy fog. She was blowing her whistle continu- ously. When off Point No-Point an- othervessel sounded close "by, and al- most immediately afterwards a terrific crash was heard. The fore cabin of the Premier was smashed to splinters and the prow of the Willamette was found jammed right into the bow of the Ptemler. The Willamette was laden with coal and was on her way from Seattle to Han Francisco. Thejfe were several the Premier's cabin, one of was killed, together wjth a boy. A who was in the sa3oon eat- ing his dinner was instantly killed. Several other passengers were jammed in the debris. Some of them srriously wounded and all more less bruised. The stem of the Wil- was so deeply imbedded in the Premier that the passengers scrambled over tlie broken woodwork and 'on the collier. The women were handed up first, followed by the wounded as fast as they could'be moved. Men with oroken limbs, and both men and women with bleeding faces and bodies were helped up. It was soon seen to be impossible to draw of the Willamette without sinking the Premier, so Capt. Anderson determined to forge ahead, driving before him the steamer Spiked on Ins bow. He forced her back on the beach and was so tightly wedged that J'e could not back off without dragging the Premier with him. The Itah, towing out a, achooDer, was hailed and she took off the passengers, bear- ing them to Seattle. The receding tide left both vessels stranded and still in- terlocked.
