The Main Shaft Goes to Smash. At 6 o'clock on the morning of Nov. 26, while the vessel was making high speed thfoutjlt a heavy sea. the main shaft brake and there was a terrible crash. The steamer trembled from stem to stern. The engines stopped instantly, and the passengers, hast ened to ascertafo the nature of the disaster There was nothing like a panic. Perfect discipline was maintained. The officers assured the 'passengers" that there was no dange,r,.and the passengers had entire coii- JMenee in tjhe officers. All the boats, however, were inad^,: ready for instant rise in case of necessity and supplied Srith a good store of provisions.

Most, of the passengers have thrilling stories to tell. Not a few however, acknowledge that-they had no con. ception of their peril until they had been landed. Twice, at least, the officers gave up hope of saving the ship, yet each time they believed it would be impossible for the boats to live In the'tremendous seas On Sunday night all the oflicers were convinced that to abandon the ship for the boats would be ,certain death.

Mrs. Robinson's Experience. Mrs. J. W, Robinson, of Chicago, told the correspondent of the International Telegraph company, the story of her experience on the drifting steamship. She said: "When the shaft broke I was sleeping irf my state room., I was aroused by a crash, then felt a heavy shock which almost threw me off my berth. I knew that something serious hah,bappened.
