Clergyman Tells the Story Quebec, July Rev. Di Burke, one 6C the passengers, give his accouont of the accident ,as fo lows: "I was on the deck at the moment and saw everything that traoisplred a well as it could be'seen. The sea wa calm, and a great veil of fog hun; ominously over We were near t tbo Gaspe coast, much nearer whei the fog arose than appeared comfort able. The siren of our ship ha sounded with painful regularity for a coouple of hours, and most of the firs class passengers had retired to thei cabin to escape It by an afternoon nap. "It was a quarter to five when went on deck to watch a game o billiards. Our horn sounded Its mal alarm, and came the answer from' something under our bows. Three whistles made -everybody ready. "There was no time .for- anyithing else, no room to turn, no chance o escape. We were proceeding at hal; spe-sd. I rushed to the forward rail as did the others, .with cues in their hands. There was still nothing to be seen, though it was felt that we were upon some ship. ftlac-k form of a collier arose out d-f the'.thick mist, crashed into it amidships, t ant ploughed OUT way squarely across its beam. The ship seemed to vie tim atwain, and it would have gone down lik-e a stone. I knew "something serious had occurred, although the impact was not such as to Woug'e gen- eral alarm in itself! The whistle and crash, however, brought everyone quickly to -the deck. Scarcely had the call for the boats sounded out loud and shrill, when almost at the very sound the tackle began to run through tlie blocks, with rriany groanlnga, and the sailors, having" unhooked the blocks, began to ply tho oars as Iresfc hey could. Had. not Iho sea been smooth, it serious problem .hat confronted u'a. Those little boats were like ttoys upon the ocean. They at first thought to take off the Hel- vetia's crew with them, bra it was not necessary. Our ship was bridged ipon Its victim, and stayed there as ong aa she could. But the crew of doomed veaael knew there was llt-_ time to spare. They climbed over be bow into the One Woman and Girl "There was a woman find a girl among them, and these held on to he ropes like the men, and were pull- ed into the-ship. The ers came out of the hold like rats, then rushed into the forwufd quar- ters, and came up the ropes to our deck, each with a sweater in Ifis hands, which they, will! infinite jab- ber, proceeded at once 'to put on.' The whole crew was .on cteck withiu ten minul-es.' By this time it was appar- ent that, the Helvetia was sinking fast." The filled the coal-laden hold, and she went, down by the stern rapidly; Wo tried 'to. away: from her, but we firmly imbedded that we could.not-extricate ourselves. There was no nanlc among our.people. One woman swooned in the steerage, but apart from this there was no de- monstration whatever. Most people had gone to their cabins and put on overcoats for an emergency, but while we were prepared to sink, all 'felt that it would not be so sudden as to results bcca use purest in q u a 1 ity; try it and see.
