Oct 3. Th trawler Cltr of London
arrived, here early lodar with the eur
vlrore or the British frelaht steamer
Manchester Commerce, which struck a
mine lata Monday ntcht off the north
ooaet of Ireland and sank. Captain
Tayne -and thirteen of his crew were
drowned, while thlrtr others were oared
by the itrawler.
Ambulances, physicians and a larta
crowd Tit townspeople were at 'the docs
when lne trawler cam tn.. Peoond Offi
cer Qee told the story of the disaster.
"The- rxploeton occurred twenty miles
north of Torey Island, on the mala trade
rout .from Manchester to Canada. The
exploaloa shook the vessel as If Jt were
merely ; a chip of wood. There was no
doubt 1n anybody's mind as to what had
happened. The ship began to sink at
once and was beneath tbe waves la seven
minutes, after striking the mine.
"The officer and crew exhibited the
creates! coolness under the circum
stance. We were able to launch only
one lifeboat, when the ship cave a sud
den lurch and went down. The captain
and officers who were at the moment
preparing- to launch the other boats were
compelled to Jump Into the water to try
and save themselves by swimming to
the single boat already launched.' Sev
eral of them were carried down with th
ship. - .. v
"I sa-sm for twenty minutes before I
was picked up. Tbe last I saw of the
captain he was giving order for launch
ing a second boat. I took command in
the solitary lifeboat and we picked up
all the . survivors and then we cruQnd
about .for a long time. When satisfied
that there ware none to be saved we
hoisted-an Improvised salt. We had gone
forty-two miles when we were picked up
by the trawler.
"Several of our men suffered greatly
from evposure. as most of them had on
no clothing except shirts and trousers."

but pointed out that it, would not be
worth whllo for a manufacturer to stsrt
building up. his business there unless h
Intended. to keep it up. 'Those who ex-

take time to build up a business there,
and the returns will, not likely be greet
the first year. There will be a greet
deal of expense attached to It It Is
useless, for example, for a msn to labor,
there to build up an American buMness
unless ha mn apeak tha language of ti e
country. . Many a manufacturer goe
there and flounder around for. a half
yer trying to g-t ome buslnee when
he know no mora Spanish than he does
Chinese. His time Is wasted."
He said we must fin 4 markets there
for our manufactured goods and that wa

quantities of raw material from South
