Unable to Ornsn Lifeline.
Tho Castagna, from Montevideo for
Boston with phosphate rock, struck tho
bar early today during a blinding snow
storm and sixty-mile northwest gale. Tho
beach patrol sighted It at dawn 300 yards
off shore, wlth the surf breaking over
It. The combined life saving crews from
the Nauset a id Gaboon's Hollow stations
set up their beach guns and shot three
lines across the Castagna's deck, but tho
sailors wore so benumbed by the cold
that they were unable to handle tho
breoches buoy tackle.
The gale had moderated to thirty miles,
but tho surf was so high that the life
savers had to wait for some time before
they could launch thclf lifeboat and pull
out to the wreck against 'wind, sea and
bitter cold.
The survivors were carried to the Mar
coni wireless station, where medical at
tention was i given them. All were so
greatly overcome by exposure that they
could give no coherent account -of tho"
disaster. ,
