At 3 o clock in the morning of May 19 v, heu 400 miles east of St Johns N P she ran head on into an iceberg or floe ei feet square, and standing twenty five, feet or more out of the water There was hardly any warning of the impending dun ger, for the lookout Peter Andreas Jor genseu, only saw the berg just before the vessel crashed mto it The Thingvalla car ried no search light, but had the ordinary lights out The weather was hazy Tin captain was aroused by the shock of the collision aud rushed on deck Lookou Jorgenseu said he saw the berg possibly four minutes before the vessel struck Sec ond Officer Jorgensen, who had been for ward tw o minutes before, saw the enormous mass of ice at the same time, and had the lookout's warning sounded befori the second officer gave the order to reversi the engines and go full speed astern Twenty Tons Tumbled Aboard. The Thingvalia was slightly to the left of the center of the big floe, and the ordet to starboard the wheel was given too late Thei steamer's engines had stopped anc begun to back when she was struck, am this, with the fact that her bows ran under an overhanging ledge, was what saved her from being sent to the bottom Had the sides of the berg been perpendicular the bows of the Thingvalla would probablj have boon crushed dowu to her keelson As it was ran fairlj against the icy mass, and Capt Laub reached the deck just in time to see about twenty tons of huge Ice blocks tumble ou the steamer's foiward turtleback He Slept Through It All. Many of the passengers were thrown out of their bertha by the shock, and they be- gan to rush on deck by scores to learn the cause, The captain and officers soon re- stored thpir confidence and the majority vt ent back to berths A few hysterical ones remained ou deck, but both officers and passengers declare theie was at no time a panic on board One man, a cabin passenger, slept soundly until 7 o'clock and he was very much nxtouished to know that a collision had occurred After the collision the Thingvalla backed off a qnai- ter of a mile and lay to She was in lati degs 10 min longitijde 43 degs 80 mm and six big bergs were in sight She (is badly injured On examining his vessel Capt Laub found that she was taking in no -water be- low decks, although her bows, on a level with the top of the turtleback, were crushed inboard a distance of five feet The out- fl ater and stem were both smashed, while the plates of the bows ou oaoh side of the stem were smashed down to within two feet of the water line Sixteen plates were bioken.and in the heavy swell barrels of w iter came in through the hole In her bow sand flooded the forecastle A stout bulkhead of planks was built between the forecastle and the break m the bows, and then Capt Laub had about fifty barrels of tune-it put into the, hole, completely fill in the space between it and the shored up pl.iuking This stopped the water from flopping into the forecmtle He Sank the Gelser. Capt. Laub commnnded the in August, 1888, when, she ran into and sank the Geiser of the same line A large number of the Geiser's passengers were lost A hole extending back twenty-four feet was knocked In the Thlngvalla's bow on the water line in the collision and her captain, after making heroic nfforts to save passengers of the iSeiser, steamed backward mto Halifax, nnmg a schooner attached by hawsers.' for a rudder.
