Pract&lln Alh onBord the
Valencia Went Down
On The, Rocks, Near Cape Beale On
Victoria, B. C., Special. The fatai
wreck of the steamer Valencia, which
occurredr on the ; rocks of Cape Beale
.-, . last week was one of the most tragic
, ror oil a few years ago. '
A vague hope was entertained "that
some of the passengers and crew who
' were not taken off may still be alive,
but it is feared that the" death list
will reach 110. Twenty-two sur
vivors have been accounted for.
A special ;? dispatch, received from
Pachena telegraph hut reports the
steamer Salvor and whaler Orion and
another steamer, believed to be the
City, of Topeka, off the mouth oi
Darling river. A small boat from the
Salvor tried to get through the surf
to make a landingg and sucor the sur
vivors there, but failed. The boat
returned to the steamer. The surf
will not be navigable for several days.
The survivors at Darling river are
from boats No. 2 and No. 5 of the
Valencia. They report that 15 men
started from the sfceamer in boat No.
2. It capsized, and seven of its oc
cupants were washed ashore. The
other eight perished. All wore life
preservers. Boat No. 5 left the wreck
with six or seven on board. It was
also capsized, and only two, Rich
ley and Bunker, the former a fire
man and the latter a passenger bound
to Seattle made the land. The wife
and two children of F. F, Bunkel
'went down before his eyes.

Xiife Baft Crushed.
One very sad incident was wit

a little girl tried to get into a boat.
The father succeeded and . the mother
tried to pass the child, but a .wave
struck her and washed the child, from
her arms. The child was lost before
her eyes. One lift raft was also
lowered, but it was dashed-to pieces.
After this four boats succeeded in
. getting away from the ship, all full
of passengers(. - This left .one boat
and twp life rafts. The captain, af
ter "consulting with the' mate, -asked
Boatswain McCarthy to take charge,
which he did, and called for volun

tracted a severe cold, which develop
ed into pleurisy and pneumonia. From

until the discease was found to have
affected both lungs.
General Wheeler's immediate rela-
tevis were all with him. His daugh
ter, Mrs. W. J. Harris, and the Miss
es Anne, Lucile and carrie Wheeler,

son, Major Joseph Wheeler, Jr., U. S.

also present, as well as General
Wheeler's sister, Mrs. Sterling Smith,
and her son.
The family were summoned to the
bedside of the patient at midnight
when the doctors in consultation con
cluded that y.e end was but a matter
of hours. The general was then
awake and conscious and his mind was
appearently active. He seemed to
know that death was approaching.
Gen. Wheeler was never again more
than semi-conscious. He lingered un
til evening and then passed away.
