Steamer Charles Hebard and Its
CAUGHT IN A FURIOUS QALE
Former IB Dashed to Pieces on the
Rocky Shore of Lake Superior.
Schooner Aloha Believed to Have
Gone Down With Crew.
Snult Sto. Marie , Mich. , Dec. 2. In
the torrlblo west gnlo on Lake Supe
rior Saturday night the Btoainor
GhnrloB Hebard was driven on the
rocky shore nt Point Mamalnso and
was soon dashed to pieces by the sons.
Her crew , consisting of thirteen men
nnd a woman cook , have not been
heard from and it Is feared all have
perished. The schooner Aloha , one of
the consorts which the Hobard had In
tow , broke away from the steamer in
Lake Superior and has not been hoard
from since. When last sighted the
Aloha was laboring hard in the trough
of the sea. The schooners Warming-
ton and Francombo , the other vessels
of the tow , ran before the gale after
breaking away from the Hebard and
succeeded in reaching an anchorage at
Copper Mine Point. The tugs General
and Philadelphia were dispatched
from this port to bring the two schoon
ers hero and to search for some trace
of the Aloha.
The four boats had loaded lumber at
"West Superior and wore bound for
Lake Erie ports , when in the middle
of Lake Superior Saturday night they
were struck by the gale and soon after
the Aloha , the rear vessel of the tow ,
parted her tow line and went adrift.
When last seen she was rolling In the
trough , with none of her canvas set.
The remaining two cojsorts either
broke away or wore set adrift soon
afterward. Bcforo daylight Sunday
morning the Francombo reached Cop
per Mine Point , at the east end of the
lake. When day dawned the wreck of
j. the Hobard was seen on the shore ,
vrith only the smoke stack and the
pilot house out of the water , but by 8
o'clock everything had disappeared
and the ship and cargo were being
strewn along the beach by the break
ers.As the jshoro at that point is very
rugged and rocky it Is feared that if
the crew had attempted to leave the
echooner when she struck their boat
must have been dashed to pieces. The
first news of the disaster was brought
liere yesterday morning by the steam
er Osslfrage , which arrived from Mich-
- " A list of the members of the crow of
the Hebard Is as follows : George G.
Ryan , captain ; William Schumaker ,
first engineer ; Joseph Roy , second en
gineer ; T. F. Correll , first mate ; A.
Jackson , second mate ; Charles and C.
Eastman , wheelmen ; John Koortas
and Nell Fay , watchmen ; William
Eagan nnd Ed Hughes , firemen ;
, George Turpln and Mattew Hudson ,
deckhands ; Mrs. Barnes , cook , Buf
The crew of the Aloha on her last
trip was as follows : Peter Johnson ,
master ; Benjamin Berry , mate ; Mrs.
Olsen , cook ; C. Anderson , William
Much , S. G. Miller and R. A. Bell , sea-
Bannockburn Given Up for Lost.
There is no longer hope for the safe
ty of the steamer Bannockburn and
her crew of twenty men. The death
knell to the hopes of the owner and
the relatives of the crew was sounded
today , when word was received from
the captain of the Boynton , stating
that ho had traversed the entire shore
where the missing steamer was be-
v Hoved to have stranded and that no
* * trace of the boat was discovered. It
now seems certain that the wreckage
found by the Rockefeller in the mid
dle of Lake Superior marked the
watery graves of the steamer and her
crow. As the waters of Lake Supe
rior reach their greatest depth at that
point , it Is probable that none of the
bodies will ever be recovered.

Detroit , Mich. , Dec. 2. The schoon

done by these institutions and went on
to say :
"Now I propose to ask congress to
bo generous with us and authorize mete
to co-oporato with the colleges nt ex
periment stations throughout the land ,
along the lines of breeding. Wo want
to produce what wo need In the Unit
ed States. I think wo have the health
iest animals In the world in the Unit
ed States of America. Our brethren
In Canada"1 perhaps have as healthy an
imals us we have here. When you go
to the continent of Europe , you find
disease there all the time , for the
reason that Jurisdiction Is so cut up
into small countries that no ono cen
tral power can stamp out the disease ,
as we can here or the British can.
Wo are compelled to shut out every
thing from continental Europe. Wo
are compelled to shut out everything
from Asia. We have to shut out
everything from the Philippines.
"Within the last four days Intelli
gence came to us at Washington that
a foot and mouth disease had broken
out In New England. Wo don't know
how It came. It has been smuggled in
by somebody , somebody that has built
a great big estate out of cheap lands
in Now England may have smuggled
it in , a deer , a sacred cow , or some
nonsensical thing llko that to fence
inside of an estate , or a wild boar that
they could chase and shoot. Anyway ,
It Is there. Wo quarantined all Now
England , stopped shipments from Boston -
ton and Portland and the British gov
ernment followed us. They are satis-
fled. We are In better shape to take
care of an epidemic now than ever
"Our animal products in a year
amount to $900,000,000 In the United
States. The dairies amount to $472-
000,000. Wo sent abroad last year in
live animals and animal products
$244,000,000 in round numbers. Our
cattle exports , live cattle , last year
amounted to $392,000,000 , our horses
to $11,000,000 , our sheep to $2,000,000. "

ing to Fear.
Chicago , Dec. 2. The west is not to
suffer on account of cattle and hog
disease. Secretary Wilson , who Is
hero to attend the national llvo stock
convention , said :
"The Indications are that wo will bo
successful in stamping out the disease
before It reaches this section. My lat
est report from the Infected district
is that it is at a standstill. The next
report will decide the number of men
that I will send to New England , but
a largo number will go. Before many
days have passed there will bo several
hundred surgeons In the New England
states and they will bo instructed to
Inspect every cow , sheep and hog. 1
bellovo wo need three or four weeks
to stamp out the disease. Congress
will bo asked for a special appropria
