cartographers been so busy as they
have been In the past few years. As
a result of the Spanish-A rnerlcuu war
of 18'JS Spain lost all her territory on
the American continent, nnd the big
gest part of that In the neighborhood
of Asia, while, as a consequence of thin
loss, she sold most of the rest of It
to Germany soon afterward. The Sa

the United States, England and Or

a new deal was made between the two
latter countries. As a result of the
Boer war of 1899-1902 the republics of
the Transvaal and the Orange Fret
State have become British territory.
And now It Is understood that Portu

Africa, and that tliey have been di

each getting the section nearest Its

to her holdings In the southern part of
Africa, and has narrowed the gap on
the east coast of that continent be

Roston, Mass., Dec. 23.-Tbe Msn
ahasset arrived at 2:30 o'clock this
morning with ten of the survivors of
the crew 'f the schooners Frank A
Palmer and Louise 13. Crary, which
were In collision In Massachusetts
bay on Wednesday. Ten men ol
both vessels weie drowned in the
collision, tbe balance, lllfeen, taking
t one boat. Three' sub-equently
went insane and juuped., overboard,
two died from exposure and two
went Insane after getting ashore.
Hoth captains weie saved.
Toe Louise B. Ciary was a five
masted schooner. . They were both
coal laden, bouud for IJoston. At
o clock a. m. yesterday when the
Manahassett was forty-five miles cfl
Highland light, the lookout sighted
a small boat wltn nen who were
making signals of distress. Tbe Man
ahassett changed her course and bore
down on the craft, which proved t
he the boat which had been lanuched
from the Crary. Only ten of the
men aboard were alive and they were
almost helpless as a result of their ex
pos jre to the rigorous weather. Sut
urday night one man became crazed
by bis sufferings and shouting at the
top of his voice that the police were
after him, he jumped overboud and
disappeared. Four other members of
the little boat's company died from
exhaustion and the exposure to which
they bad been subjected.
All the survivors were frost bitten
and some of them will probably have
to have their feet and hands ampu
tated. Tbe Manahassett came into the har
bor early this morning snowing sig
nals for assistance and by the time
she arrived at the wharf ambulances
were ready to convey the sailors to a
hospital. Only six of the men could
be removed however. The other four
were in such condition that It wis
deemed Impossible tbev could sur

It appears that the collision oc
curred at 7:30 last Wednesday night
Oir Cape Ann. The night was clear,
but a stiff gale was blowing and the
sea was running high. The members
of the Palmer's crew claimed that
the Crary was on the wrong trac
and In attempting to cross the Palm
er's bow, hit her on the bow, cutting
her nose square off and entangling
both vessels in the -reck. Tbe an
chor and bowsprit of the Palmer sank
away from the wreck, while the an-j
chor of the Crary was entangled In
the rigging of the Palmer and bn.ke
off the, foremast. The vessel began
to till and sank in a few mlnuies.
Tbe Palmer's men managed to low
er a boat. There was no time pio
cure provisions or additional cloth
ing. As the men cleared the wreck
they saw the Crary's men in the same
plight as they had been and made
room for as many as could reach tbe
boat. Fifteen souls were In the
small craft when It Anally pulled
away, hoth captains being among
those who thus escaped. A short
time after the beat left both schon
ers went down. Six men perished
when the vessels sank. For the sur
vivors a battle which lasted three
days and four nights had begun.
One-third of the number succumbed

reached shore Done was able to relate
what they had escaped.
The Crary was a comparatively new
vessel She was built at Hath, Me.,
In 1900, and was ono of the finest
five-masters on the coast. Her cargo
consisted of 3.702 tons of tltumiuous
coal, conslgued to this port The
vessel was only partially insured, but
