Man., Aug. 2y.-During a furious storm' on L^ko Winnipeg, .Sunday morning, the steamer PrIn -cess went to the bottom and six lives were lost. It is the wor-it marine disaster recorded in the inlnnil waters of Weslei-n C'nnatla. The wreck occurred while the boat was southbound from Poplar Point at Swampy Island, about two  i.ndr.ul and fifty miles north of Selkirk. The destruction of the vessel was followed by matiy instances of striking heroism among the crew und passengers and splendid resignation among the women in the presence of imminent death. Captain II�Wi>n wont down wHh the ship, trying to comfort the women who found e.-*-cupe impossible. The disaster was apparently duo to ihe tremendous storm encountered by the Princess and in spHe of the fmost couragjcous efforts of the officers and crew. Tho boat was caught on the lee - nd surviving passengers safctiy i.ji.geJ in a yawl and a lifeboat were f'-trc-l tr> witness the death ol their friends. The stories ol the survivers indiiv te the appalling sufferings endured by tho crew and the nine passe.iirers 1 e-lore they were safely landed i;pon Swampy island. Tho story ol the wreck reads 'ike a Robinson Crusoe tale as the s ur -vivors tell ol the experiences of tiose who were lortunate enough lo be saved. SELKIRK IN sonnow. Today tho town,ol Selkirk is stricken by th� hand of death and >,!ic six victims of the disaster leave a host ol frieDds and relatives to mourn their death. The steamer Princess .was caught in a squall off Swampy island early Sunday nvoming. Whether the uoat struck upon a reef or.fell apart is a question to be determined '.y the official inquiry which will be lu'd by the authorities. The facts .ill probably never be revealed, lut tho largest boat on tho lakes has .f.ono to the bottom in spite of heroic efforts at ivscuo and tho lives of six -human Ijeings have lM?en forfisitcl while the survivors have endurod the limit of suffering and expose before being ^lely land�!d at Selkirk. From the story' told by mcm-beirs of the passengers and crow who were landed at Selkirk it appears that the steamer Princess sailed north lost Thursday, calling at Warren's landing, and on her return trip was in the neighborhood of Swampy island, 330 nriles north of Selkirk on" Saturday afternoon.. TUESMENDOUS SEA UUNNINQ A tremendous sea was running an I frequent "squalls and rain rendersd the trip more perilous. The boat hud left Big Geoiye'a island and had run against a strong west M-ind for a-bout three houni towards Swamity island. When a few miles from th> island the cirew discovered the l> was aleak and when it was found that it was ini'ponsible to keep her dry it was decided ^td tur^ back lo-wards Big George's island. A fien-o gale was blowing, the waves dashini; over the boat, and despite the fact that the puni(M were kept going. It was impossible to sulxfuc the waters which steadily gained upon thu crew bard at.v'orlc at the pumps. ^ About midnight on Saturday the crew gave up the struggle, and putting the boat about ran before the wind, hoping to make the nearest beach on the eojit side of the lake and distant about ten mii^. Tho rush lor a safe haven had continued for about an hour when the boat either grounded' or ran upon a reef. What really caused the destruction of the vessel will probably never be known. The vessel, under the fury ol the waves, broke in two, and ,settling ut tho stern first, she gradually sank at the l>ow on which the greatest loss of life occurred, being the last part of the boat to disappear. Tho sur-vi%'ors wlio hod taken to the two boats, a life boat under the command of Chief Engineer Pool, and a yawV in cbarge of Mate Joyce, finally sueisMded in making Cox's shoal on Swotnp.v'island on Sunday. Living OB dead flsh picked up on the beach and without any shelter or warm and dry clothing, the sixteen sur^'ivers had a terrible experience until rescued by the City of Selkirk, which was on her trip doivn the lake and was signalled at Swampy island and p�it in despite the daqgerous nature of the navigation, owing to the treacherous rocks and stormy waters. George Fn>eman ami William Booth were below when the captain ami mate recogniw?d the f.xtremo danger of tho situation. When they came on deck Freeman crrtered ihe up|>er cabin ami went in to fetch out the life bolts. Tho girls on boanl would not use Frooman gave his overcoat to Miss Flora ^Mac-donaW. .-Vll on board made for the bow. The boat sank at the stern and the waves, lashing in their fury, broke up the boat in six feet lengths The vessel smashed f*ko an egg shell from the stern all the way up to tho bov. Chief engineer Poole climbed across the cabin and Freeman and Booth with tho others followed. IIECOVER ONE MOBE BODY. All the survivors are in tho town today and are barely recovered front their terrible experience. Only one body, that of .loseph .lohannason, has been recovered. It was found on tho shore of Swampy island tho day after the wreck, but the other bodies are still uncovered. An investigation will be held, as soon as possible. The attorney-general's department at Winnipeg was notiflotl to -night, and pending instructions, the body will bo held. ^ Selkirk is mourning for the vic^ tiihs of the wreck. The greatest sympathy is felt for Mrs. Hawes. wife of Cant. Hawes. She is loft with five small children. A month ago she buried her baby, who sue-cumbod to typhoid fever. Miss Flora Macdonald. stewardess on the Princess and Miss Yobn. cook on tho Ijoat, were both well known in this town. Miss Macdonald has u sistof, Marion, employed at the ..Tapanoso room, at the T. Eaton coiiw>any in Winnipeg, and resided with her grandfather .lonas Anderson. Superior Street, Selkirk Dr. Stephenson of Winnipeg will atrivc in town tomorrow to take charge of the inquest proceedings. SKETCH OF LOST CAPTAIN. Captain John Hawes, in command of the foundered Princess, who was drowned, was 60 years of age. He was an experienced navigator, and before coming to Selkirk betwoon 15 and 18 years j^o hod been in the employ of the Hudson's Bay com -pany at Fort Churchill. Previous to that time ho iutd been captain of a boat running between Liverpool and Hudson's bay and had made somo twenty trips across tho' At lantic. He was of an unassuming character, and altogether ho had seen nearly every part of tho ^lol>o. It wa.s scltlom that he entertained his Selkirk friends with stories of his adventures. Ho was %n Engllsh-mi^n by birth.and had sailed to both India and China and at one tini'� his services were sought by e. noted Arctic explorer who had hcard�of his voyages it> tho Hudson's Bay. Ho leaves a wife. who is prostrated with grief, and five children, all!of whom live at Selkirk. Captain . Robinson, in speaking of Captain Hawes' death, expressed keen regret at his friend's death, and remarked sorrowfully that Lake Win-nifteg hM lost one o^l its best and most carelul navigators.
