Tuesday aroRirrcsra JULY 5, 1904. THE PITTSBURG- POST. 101 FROM NOKGE WRECK ARRIVE ftT STDRNQWRY. Steamers Bring Many Passengers Saved From Waves Around RockhaU Reef. GALLANTRY OF CREW AND MALE PASSENGERS LAUDED. Many on Board Lost Boat Had Tickets Prepaid by Friends Here. ACCOUNT OF THE SAILORS. G lantic r. i RIMSBY, Eng, July 4.Rock- hail reef, a lone pile of gran ite rising sheer out of the At- 290 miles from the Scottish mainland, is now a monument to al most 700 dead, who were among the nasseneers on the -wrecked Danish steamer Norge. Those of the passengers who were standing at tha time the steamer struck the rock were thrown against the bulkheads or on the decks and had not recovered their feet when a stentorian voice gave the terrifying order: "AH bands on deck. Hurry or you may sink." Tmmaiateiv there was a rush for the narrow cumpantonwaya and men, women and children pusnea ana sirueuiou. made every other effort to reacn the deck where the boats swung from the davits. Many persons, retaining their presence or Wind, seized life preservers only to find In Sv-me Instances that the strings were rotten. It remained there only a few minutes, for Captain Gundell, commanding, who had immediately gone to the bridge, gave the order to the engine room to reverb the engines. Some men of the engineer force had relatives among the pateng(rs and after seeing them fcafely to the boats they heroically returned to their stations below. Ship Was Backed Off Rock, Slowly the ship backed off and as she gained wav. It was found that water was pouring into her hold. This announcement, called out in Scandinavian and iresaglng cieuth, added to tne supreme rtt-hi ami Bironv. The sound of grinding eeawed. and the bow of the Norge yawed as the steamer returned to deep water, 'ihe sea rushed hungrily Into the huge rents made by the rocks in the Iron hull. Swiftly the vessel began to sink by the bows. Without waiting for orders, without paying attention to their propr manning, the occupants began to lower the boats. The starboard lifeboat began slowly to fall, when the horror of those on board the stern tackle failed, while the bow tackle ran free. Soon the boat was almost perpendicular. Those who were in it clung desperately to the sides and seats until a great wave came towering along and atiuck the boat, smashing it against the side of the ship. The occupants of the boat who were not killed by the impact were thrown into the water. The crew and passengers on deck had no time to spare to assist the lew who had a chance to escape, but lost it. Undeterred by the experience of the first boat, a second, loaded principally with women and children, was lowered. This time the tackle ran smoothly, but the hopes of escape of the passengers on board were blasted. The moment it touched the water waves picked up the small cratt as If it had been a fcriher and dashed it against the side oi the ship In spite of the frantic efforts of the fi&ssengers to fend It off. The crash was leard on deck. Then the sea swallowed more victims and pieces of wreckage slowly drifted toward the rock. The upper deck of the Norge at the lime of tha disaster to the second boat was only a few feet from the water and It was apparent to every one that only a few minutes more and she would plunge beneath the waves. In the final crisis those who were able to remember clearly what happened, say that the shrlfcks and sobs died away, and that the quiet was only broken by the curses of some men whose fear found vent in blasphemy. Hundreds Struggled in Water. Suddenly one man threw himself overboard and another followed his example. Still another Jumped Into the water, and soon around the ship hundreds of persons were struggling In the sea. having preferred (loam in the open than to being submerged with the snip. Others determined to stand by tne ship, hoping agnlnst hope tnat she would remain aiioat. Three boats. It is known, successfully reached the sea. The passengers frantically pulled away from the doomed ship, passing by the pior wretches who were still afloat and who vainly begged to be taken aboard, while. from the ship came long-despairing cries. The women in the boat whica reached Grimsby hid their eyes, but the men who were sitting facing the Norge suy they saw the ciiptaln still on tha bridge and the passengers on deck in attitudes of resignation. While they looked the Norge plunged forward, her stern shot up in the air and she disappeared. The swimmers In the vicinity of the ship were drawn into the vortex, around which tliey swirled like chips In th maelstrom. Hut 12 minutes elapsed from the time the Bhlp struck until she sank. A fine Scotch rnist which was falling at the time shut out the other survivors from the view of those who were brought to Grimsby. The latter, us soon as their boat was clear of the scene of the wreck, devoted themselves to thoughts of their own safety. A Jacket was tlt-d to an oar, which was in turn fastened In the bow of the bout, and a sailor, u Dane, took charge of the boat. Men and women were put to work keeping the boat atlout. us a hole had bneu stove in her bjw when It was lowered from the ship. An examination of tne water cask showed that It did not contain a drop of water. There were some biscuits, however, and those were eaten by the shipwrecked people during the 24 hours from the time the ship struck, at 7 a. in. June 2.S. until they were picked up by the Grimsby trawler Sylvia. Engineer Gives Account. "I was on the bridge looking at the men gathering In tne seine," said Henry Ulovtr. second engineer of the Sylvia. " 'Is that a buoy out of place?' I asked the cook, who was with me on deck. You don't see any buoy he answered. I went below and got the glasses. 'It's a small boat.' I said, 'and they have got a Jacket Hying at the bow. They've been shipwrecked. We told the captain and he immediately told us to go ahead, and we picked them up. There were a terrible sight men and women Insufficiently clothed and so cramped that they could hardly come on board. We cauld not uHiiicuinici), ior we naa our nets out. but as soon as they were stowed in we went directly to where the Norge went down. There was no trace of the ship but swushing in the water back of the rocks were th bodies of more than 100 wni, women iind little children my God little children!" Karl Mathkson. the Danish sailor who asauriK'i command of the boat brought to Urlnitthy, only Joined the Norge at t'openhagrn just before she suited for New York. He said he knew nothing about the ship's arrangements in ca.se of collision or lire, ile had never been Instructed in fire drill and did not understand what It meant. He was on deck when the vessel struck, but he did not Know until he heard the captain snouting the order to man the boats that the damage was great. Mathiesnn said to the representative of the Associated Press: "I worked with the third mate and followed him to the different boats. The first we attempted to lower fouled her tackle, keening her stern fixed, while her bow fell and shot the occupants Into the water. A hf-Hvy sea washed the boat against the ship's side. We went to another, a crowd of shrieking women ksnd children following. The launching operations were not conducted simultaneously, the officers and crew going from one to another. Had men been set to work at each boat more people would have been saved. Some of the crew were worse than the passengers, and but Cor tiie officers would have put off In the WEST CHESTER CELEBRATES FOURTH WITH MUCH MORE GUSTO THAN EVER. Despite the Order of Burgess Pennypacker That People Should Remain at Home and Read Burns or Eat Angel Cake in the Parlor, a Noisy Time Is Held. Special to The W EST CHESTER, Pa., July 4. Presumably because of the strict injunctions laid down by Burgess Penny-packer, regarding the observation of the Fourth, this town to-day enjoyed the noisiest celebration in its history. The people, seemingly, did not take kindly to the mayor's order of keep quiet, eat angel cake and read Bobby Burns. The order may have had some effect on other occasions, but on the Fourth it came merely as an incentive to further exhibition of patriotism. Right before the very door of Burgess Pittsburgh Post. Pennypacker the noisiest and longest demonstration was made. Large crowds of the youth of the town gathered at an early hour in the morning and began a fusillade that aroused the neighborhood. The burgess appeared on the scene in a displeased mood, but to no avail, the noise continued unabated for several hours. West Chester has never been known to celebrate the "glorious Fourth' 'as It did to-day. Next year the "sensitive' burgess will take care to issue no restrictions regarding the celebration of that day which Americana are proud to remember. boats themselves. These were driven back and threatened with death unless they obeyed orders. The captain never left the bridge, but he shouted so many orders that tne crew did not know what to do. Therefore I stuck to the third mate. Together we Jumped into a small boat Just oefore the vessel went down, but we did not think so many were left behind as appeared on the water when the Norge sank. Those remaining on board were chiefly women and children. I saw only two other boats afloat, one a bi lifeboat, easily carrying SO persons, and the othr a smaller boat, carrying poAslb.y ). "No other boats got away, though there were eight on board." Deeds of Heroism. Many deeds of heroism shine brightly through the paU of catastrophe. ihat 01 Jans Peters Jansen, who has re.a-tives In Brooklyn, N. is told with admiration by the survivors. He was one of tne engineers of the Norge. .When tne ship struck he learned the extent o the disaster, and went below to where his relatives were and told them and those nearby to go at once to tne upper deck. He accompanied them to the boats and saw them safely on board. He was urged to join them, but he said he must return to tne engine room, and snoutmg a fareweil ran to his post of duty, wnere be died. Some of the mae passengers, without a thought of self, placed women and children in the boats, preferring to remain behind ratner than take advantage of their strength. The mate of the Norge, who left the ship in the boat which arrived here. se-ing that it was overcrowded, leaped into the water for the purpose of swimming to a second boat not far away. He hai only gone a snort distance wnen, w. gated by his clothed, his strength gave out and he sank. The crew of tne Norge appear to have behaved well atter the hrsl sanic. when, it is said, the olticers were compelled to drive them back from the boats. But there apparently was no discipline, the orders wnich the captain shouted from ..lie bridge being roisauer-preted or unheard. too far as toe survivors here remember there was no systematic distribution of the people to the boats, which were not adequately manned. No attempt was made by any of tne survivors to save property. 'ltiere was no time to make preparations. RockhaU Reef Well Known. The correspondent of the Associated Press made careful inquiry to discover why the Norge was so tar oft her course. Kockhall reef is known to every sailor on the North Atlantic and Is marked plainly on the charts. A strong current sweeps in its direction and it is presumed, owing to absence of definite knowledge tnat the current drew the Norge to her grave; that a heavy mist prevented the lookouts from seeing the danger, and that there was no thougnt of Kockhall reef until the snip struck and the captain called out that they had struck this terror of northern navigation. Those survivors wishing to continue their Journey to America will be snt forward via Liverpool to-night, while there who refused to go farmer, together with the sailor. Matnieson, have left Grimsby by steamer direct for Erbjerg, pen mark. All the men were provided with new clothing before their departure. Owing to the strict enforcement of certain regulations and the fact that there is no Uanish consul here, all the survivors of the Norge who arrived here on the steam trawler Sylvia were kpt on that vessel all night. They were In a pitiable condition. Xhis morning in the dingy cabin of the trawler the representative of the Associated Press saw over a dozen persons, including five women and two children, huddled together. Three of the women were in a bunk, one was lying on the cabin floor and the other was leaning against the captain's berth, too bewildered to move. Two of these women pleaded to see a Danish ministry of the gospel, but the one settled here happened to be away. Johann Johonsen, a gray-headed man from Tromsoe, said when the ship nrj-t bumped most were below. All rusned to the deck. He toad his wife and five children with him. At first none was aware of what had happened and all kept quiet, but in a minute or two they saw the ship was sinking and then there wera shrinks and cries too awful to describe. There were nearly 200 children aboard and they screamed with tenor. Their mothers, too, were almost frantic, though some of them calmer than the others began putting their little ones in the rigging and other elevated positions. The ofucers of the ship kept calm, but the crowd was uncontrollable. Men and women began Jumping into the sea, while others ran up Hnd down trying to snatch life belts from those who had them. As soon as the first boat was got out there was a mad rush for her, with the result that she immediately sunk. Three Boats Were Lost. Tn this way three boats were lost. Meanwhile Johonsen had put his wife and five children on a hatch and Implored them not to move until he returned. When he saw other boats being launched he returned to fetch his wlfo and children, but they had disappeared. Whether they had gone In another boat or had been carried away In the mad rush he did not know. Another survivor told the Associated Press representative that most of the passengers on the steamer were going to friends in America. One of the five surviving women was going out to her husband and she had throughout clung to her little girl of 6. Another woman. In her delirious Joy at being picked up. offered one of the crew of the trawler h-r wedding ring. While some of the boats were overcrowded, others, according to the survivors, had only a few ptrsotis in them. The captain absolutely refused to leave the ship. He was standing on th bridge and appeared to be overcome t the appalling catastrophe. It appears that the weather was very hazy when the Norge struck, but the captain of the truwler und others sny Ilockhail reef is so well known, especially to New York traders, that they cannot understand how the steamer struck. "We had Just got down our K?ar Wednesday morning." said the mate or the trawler, "when we saw tho boat. At first we took little notice of her, but finally mrtde out through a glas that she was full of people. We Immediately handed up our trawler and bore down toward the boat with full speed, the occupants of which were in a pltiahie plight drenched, half clad and exhausted. We got them aboard and fitted them out as best we could, made the women as comfortable as possible and immediately sailed for home." Will Return Home. The survivors were landed at about 10 o'clock. They will be taken back to Co-h.TOn r.n the Bothnia, sailing to-night. Karl Jlathleson, the only member of the crew among the survivors, said to the Associated Press that Kockall reef was Invisible in the fog and rain. The captain and chief officer of the barge were both on the bridge at the time of the accident The chief engineer got into one of the boats, but the captain was seen on the bridge, surrounded by many other persons', all in an attitude of prayer as the Norg sank. STORNOWAY. Scotland. July 4 Ono hundred and one survivors of the Danish steamer Norge have been landed here. The British steamer Cervona, from Leith Julv 1. for Montreal, brought in 32 shortly before noon. She picked them up from a boat yesterday evening westward of the butt of Lewis. They were in woful plight, nearly all of them -being naked. One dead child was with the party. Shortly afterward the German steamer Energie arrived with 70 perons rescued from the Norge's lifeboat. They all wfro terrlhlv vhn Tinted. The Cervona pro ceeded on ler voyage, but will keep a lookout for other possible survivors of the Danish steamer. -rCV YORK, July 4 The officers of the Scandinavian-American steamship line In city were besieged to-day by scores of BMited people, nearly all Russian Jews, wi were eeking news about the sinking of Ue steamer Norge. There was no Informant" to be had, however, as the offices wSfe closed for the day and the newspaper:? were eagerly watched for any additional letails of the disaster. The local agent, after stating that the offices would not be open to-day, eaid that he had not received any information regarding the wreck and did not expect any to-day. Family of Nine May Be Lost. ' One man named Max Brentserg, of Brooklyn, said his family of nine, Including his father and mother, were on the steamer. COPENHAGEN, July 4 The news of the disaster to the Danish steamer Norge created indescribable excitement here. The first message reached here at 4 o'clock thia morning. Crowds soon gathered about the offices of the line, relatives of those on board frantically peeking information. The oftlces, however, do not open until 9 o'clock. A feeling of general gloom and mourning is beginning to pervade Copenhagen. The Norge had no first class passengers on board and only nine on her second cabin list. These Included three American Elizabeth and Anna Buckley and Hllma Flelschman. All the others were in the steerage. There were on board 6'M steeruge passengers. Of these 79 were Dunes. &S Swedes, Norwegians, 15 Kins and iJS Russians. The Norge carried a crew of 71. S-he Whs the oldest Danish trans-Atlantic steamer running. The Buckleys belong to Seattle. Htlma Flelschman s address is not n in. Very few of the steerage passengers faa previously been to America. The authorities here sav the Norge was not ever-crowded, and that the boats and other life-saving apparatus were ali in a satisfactory condition. The flags are naif-masted on all the ships and buildings here. Had Prepaid Tickets. Onfi-half of the passengers of the Norge were furnished with prepaid tickets by relatives in America. The names of ihe relatives have been cabled by '. company to New York. Captain GunJell. the late commander of the Norge. was regarded as one of the best seamen of Denmark One of his greatest friends was General Christensen, of New York, wno never traveled on any other ship than the vessel commanded by Gundell. The Denmark, a sister ship of the Norge. was wrecked In ISM. There were no fatalities, however. The United Steamship Company, which owned the Norge, has rceived a telegntn from Stornoway saying that the Energie picked up 70 survivors of the Norge, including her captain, Gundell, and that tha Cervona picked up 32. The company carried all the insurance risk of the Norge with the exception of about iS,' insured through German underwriters. Lake Erie Reduces World's Fair Rates.
