The men were chilled to the bone from their exposure to wind and wave and could not hold out much longer. They were taken on board the Humboldt, brought to this city and taken at once to the office of J. M. Ceballos Co.. 90 Wall sti-pet, the owners of the Vizcaya. The firm had received notice of the loss of their vessel from the Maritime Exchange but a few minutes before the survivors walked into the office. For the next hour all was excitement in the office of Cebaluis Co. None of the survivors coulil talk Knglish, and for some time it was impossible to obtain from any of them a correct account of the wreck From Dr. Kico the best account ob- tained. Dr. liico said: "Everything was, working niceiy. The weather was line, the moon shone bright and the sea was smooth. It was about 8 o'clock wheu I was on deck and took a few turns back and forth while smoking an after-dinner cigarette. I didn't see any vessel near us. The ship was in charge of the first officer. who was on the bridge. I went down to the saloon then, and there met XIrs.Calvos. We sat down and began talking. Sud- denly I heard the gong in the engine room ring the -Rtop'' signal. Before I could even wonder what it was for, there cutue an awful shock. crashing, scraping sound on the deck over our heads, and the steamer rolled well over on her port side. Everybody in the saloon was thrown down. All was men. women and children shrieking for from what th-y did not know. Calvos my hands aud me to tind and save her boy. I told her I would. I started up to the deck to tind him. When I got out of the companiouway, a terrible .scene met ray eyes. The bridge, deckhouse and fore-rigging weie all torn away: there was a groat gash in the star- I board side, just abaft the coal t and through this opening the water was pouring in. by on our starboard beam wns a bits four-masted schooner, her bowsprit aud fore-riaging gone and I her bow stove -in. She, too. was fllling rapidly. Men were running here and i 1 there all over her shouting all kinds of orders, and I can remember see- ing the crew of the schooner doing the lame thing on their vessel. "The next thing I knew water was Railroad Notes. making over our decks. The 51 earner was fasc sinking.

We could not have held ont much longer." From the second officer some more facts were obtained. He wa.s on deck standing under the bridge when the collision oc- curred. He said the steamer's lights were burning right aud the watch on deck at their posts. He did not see the schooner nntil the first officer m the bridge rang the signal to stop. "At the time he rang to said Second Officer Covns, "Capt. Cunill had just come from supper aud was up on the bridge.

Late last eveningoneof the shipwrecked men was seeu on board the Cui lad Gon- dola, another ship of Ceballos Co., lay- ing at pier 21, North river. He told practically the same story as Dr. Rico's and the second mate, adding that at the time the collision nearly all of the Tizcaya's crew were usleep, being worn out with the hard work attendant upon leav.ng port.
