the usual number of distinguished per

of the most strlnklng Incidents was the
cordial meeting between the floor lead

the president, an honor always be
stowed upon the recoitnlied leader of

glare of fire was seen. The Dalecar
lla, altering her course, at 9.10 o'clock
came alongside of a ship ablaze from
the stern to the foremast, while a large
yellow funneled German steamship
was standing In near the flaming,

on the decks of the burning vessel, nor
were there any boats struggling amid
the waves, so It la probable that the
crew were rescued by the steamship
which was waiting to note the end.
The steamer by the burning ship was
