Fnneral Bells Tolling. Heanwhilf the solemn tolling of nhurch the frequent passage of laden hearsea long lines of fnnnral carriages gave to the hurrying crowd that the toi na do's victims were passing to their last rest- ing places.

AN OCEAN WKEV HOUND'S PERIL. A Hole Stove In the Great Liners Hull When She Was Over Two Hundred Miles from Preservers and Boats Made Ready QuimsTOwn, March 31. The thousand and siTty passengers of the great ocean greyhound City of Paris, after an advent- ure that might easily have terminated their lives, are safe ashore-again thanking Provi- dence for their narrow escape from an un- marked grave on "Old ocean's gray and melancholy waste. The maguificent steam- er hundreds of tons of water in her hold and, her machinery is disabled, the result of an accident which in some manner knocked a bole in her hull and would have sent her to the bottom but for her numerous water- tight compai tments. The accident to the steamer occurred when the vessel was 216 miles off Fastnet Tbe paraengers say they heard a loud crash, followed by a7i explo- sion The ship quivered and the thumping of broken machinery in the engine room shook the steamer from stem to stern She Began Leaking Badly She began leaking badly fiornthe hole which had been broken in the bottom The pumps were quickly manned and the boats were ordered to be cleaied The pasaen gars were much excited, but the officers re- mained -calm, and their presence of mind and enforcement of regular dibciplme soon had the effect to restore the confidence of all on board "VV hen it was found that the vessel was rapidly taking in water, with a possibility of foundering, a panic arose on board. The excitement was heightened by the fact that the firemen and some of the engineers rushed up on deck immediately after the crash occurred, and displayed great alarm The engine room had boon flooded through the injection tubes, which, it is alleged, the engineers in their excite- ment neglected to close A Hero He Was The second engineer remained at his post ind risked his life in the effort to shut off- ste-m In this he finally succeeded, and thus saved the machinery from, total wreck When the shock came there was a rush aft, and then every one halted in pallid aus pense All was now still in the starboard engine room save the hissing of steam, but the port engine was still woi king There was not a word spoken for sixty seconds By this time Capt Watkms had come down from the bridge A moment later came word that both engine rooms were rapidly filling, but that there was no immediate danger What Had Happened? No one knew nractly what had happened. It was believed that the crank shaft of the starboard engine broke, beating in the biggest of the three cylinders and thi ashing about with its connections, breaking in the bulkhead between the two engine roomb and that dividing them from the compart meiit next aft, and either breaking the an cuonng pipe, eighteen Inches in diametei, leading to the sea outside, or actually .smashing a hole through her side and bot tain The passengers donned life presu ers and extra clothing and gathered about tln. boats in readiness to leave at a moment's notice, but fortunately there was no neceh sity for taking to the soa. Four of the big wntertight comportments filled with water, but the i emaming compartments hold firm and kcjit the steamer afloat The Adriatic Sighted The steamer was drifting about for sixty hours before aid came to her Poitutiatjly the weather was fine, and there was haidly a breath of wind Signals of distress wort constantly showu, rockets and flare lights bqing used at night Finally, on Fniiay nunming, the Adriatic was sighted bhe offered to take off the passengers and con them to New York, which was all that slie could be expected to do under the cir cijnistances. Some of the passangersj'thought tbjat the big W hite Star steamer ought to have turned around and towed the City of Pfns into port, but the officers of the City of Paris said this would have been against alt precedent, and entirely unnecessary m of the fact that the disabled steamer whs not in distress and was in reach of otuier help The Aldersgate to the Rescue. After the steamer had drifted about for a (ong time without sighting anothi r vessel, chief officer and six men started in a lileooat to get into the track of the liners, hoping to intercept some one of them and pitocure assistance. They encountered the which willingly came to the aid of the disabled steamer Three tugs soon joined the Aldersgate and helped in towing the City of Paris toQueens- txrwn. On arrival at that port the passen assembled in the saloon, and after a re- lirious service in recognition of the provi- dential escape had boon held, resolutions were adopted complimenting the captain and crew upon their able and unwearied efforts for the safety and comfnrtof the Ajpnrae of was raised, which will be donated to the New York and Hverpool Mariners' institute was It a Becord Breaking Accident? The passengers upeak very highly of the ciinductof the vrewof the steamer, both in the matter of managing the disabled ship and in f and comfortable. possible. At the name time there is a general that the giv- ing way of the machinery was the result of the tremendous strain put upon It in the de- sire to beat 'be record. The officers of the vocsel were very reticent M to the exact nature of the accident, and the passengers very hary views on the subject.
