Omahan Survivor of Ship that Went
Down Near Recent Disaster.
BOAT STRIKES A BIQ ICEBERG;

Before the Ship Sinks frith

List on noard.
The disaster of tho Pacific Coast
Steamship company's Iron steamer, Stato
of California Sunday morning In Gambler
bay, oft the coast of Alaska, recalls to
mind a similar disaster in 1901, Just sixty
miles north of the present one, of which
Walter G, Preston, treasurer of tho
Bankers' Reserve Life company la a
"Our ship sank fourteenmlnutea after
the first shock of strlklnsTthe Iceberg,"
said Mr. Preston. "Out of ISO passengers
and tho crew, there were but sixty-five
passengers saved. Tho crew ran away
with the life boats."
"My wlfo was with me we had been
married only two weeks. It was about 2
o'clock In the morning when we struck
the Iceberg. I stepped Into the main
saloon and noticed the bow was alnnted
toward the Icy water. , I then went Into
the smoking compartment, where I found
a number of men smoking, and trying
on life preservers; but not ono was mak
ing any effort to escape. The mate ran
In, out of breath, and told up there was
no danger; that the boat would right
Itself In a minute, and that we should ro
turn to our staterooms. I felt the ship
Jar a trifle, and slip, and I returned to
my wife. She hastily dressed, and, with
only out outer clothing we sought the
deck. I went to tho rail and could ico
tho position of our ship. It seemed sta
tionary, caught on a portion of the Ice
berg, with Its bow hidden In the waves
and tho propeller fifteen feet above water.
Only One Lifeboat.
"There waa only one life boat in sight.
The creW had in Its haste to escape,
taken tho others. There were two peopte
In the llfo boat when my wife and I
climbed In. Wo tried to cut away, but In
the excitement, some ono cut one ropo
and left the other, which caused the life
boat to hand perpendicular In the water.
We hung on somehow until tho remaining
ropo was cut and the boat lighted her
self. Ono potoengeY slid overboard, but
we picked him up afterward. Then wo
started rowing, not knowing where, but
Just anywhere, and In the cold night the
drenched ocoUpants of the lifeboat, of
whom there were fourteen, were anxious
for tho exercise. We had Just cleared tho
propeller, when we heard an explosion
and tho shlpv plunged Into the water as
swift ns on arrow. And from the time we
truck the Iceberg until the ship sank but
fourteen minutes elnpeed.
"We could see nothing that resembled
o shore at first, on nccount of tho dark
ness. But somewhere in the direction of
tho siinkon ship we heard the cries of
Women. We debated n. mntnnnt. RhmiM
wo return to tho ship and try to save

In their frenzy they would swamp tho
lifeboat, already well filled with passen
gers anu uadiy leaking. So we rowed
away, and their cries beenmn fnintAr
fainter, until nt last we could hear them
no longer. Then a deep sense of dejection
j and silence settled upon all ot us there In
that frail little leaking craft. We thought
that we had done rlvht. hut m.tut '
