Q ve of the ill-fated gt .am jr E trnmoor, of the
Earn Line, which foundered at sea on Sep
tember 5 in a cyclone when 3) miles oS Turk's
island, bound from Baltimore to Bio Ja
neiro, arrived in Philadelphia from New
York, to which port they were brought by
the steamer Santiago, from Nassau.
Thoy tell a story of terrible suffering. The
Earnmoor struck a terrific gale on Septem
ber 4, which increased in force and at 11.33
A M. on the following day the vessal gave a
lurch and foundered.
As the steamer sank the port life boat
floated off from the ship betwean the funnel
sndthe mainmast, and tbe man clung to the
boat and scrambled-in the secon I officer,"
lecond and third engineers four s iilors,tbree
Uremen and tbe cook.
An effort was made to save the rest of the
;rew, aud a drag was mide oJ the punter,
but the boat was blown away and toe oars
wrestled from tbe h inds of the men, so that
so more could be saved.
The cries of the drowning men as they were
lashed about by the mountainous wares were
heard by the men in,tbe boat, but they could
Qot be reached, and bad to be abandoned to
their fate. It was impossible to put the boat
back for them. It was an ov. rsignt that the
boats bad not been provisioned m anticipa
tion of the calamity, as it would have saved
tbe terrible sufferings of tu survivors. For
tunately, tha boat drifted into the -Gulf
Stream and the air was warm, but this in
creased tae intensity of their thirst.
"The horrors of hunger on the second day
became awfu:," said Carl Crane, one of tuo
lurvirors, "and it increased as timj wore
on. We managed to pick up seaweed ulloat
iu the Gulf Stream, wuica gave us a little
autritneut, and on ttie third day a flying fish
was caught. This was immediately cut up
into a portion for each man aud d voureU.
We also captured a sea bat and sucke 1 its
blood and then ate tha flash after it haddr.ed
(a the sun.
The first man to die was a saamm and the
ucond was the third engineer. One uixbt
while wo were all asleep, except a German
fireman, who was on watch, be suddenly be
came insane and jumped overboard. We were
to i weak to save Dim. We were without a
comp iss and steered by the sun by day and the
itars by night.
"Eleven vessels passed us, one a British
birk, we are certaiu saw us and de ibf rately
left us to our rate. Wueu 3 JO miles off Hat
teras we were picked up uy a schooner. I
cannot describe la words our joy uc the sight
of this deliverance. We were so weak tuat
we hd to be lifted upon thj vessel's deck, an.i
one of our men, a Norwegian, fell overboard
aud was drowned."

DESTITUTION IN THE DAKOTAS
Report of the Relief Committee of the
at. Paul Chamber of Commerce.
The Relief Committee of the Chamber of
Commerce of St. Paul, Minn., has presented
a startling report on tbe destitution existing
in the Dakotas. It says tbe suffering and de.
titution is much greater than has yet been
reported. The report continues:
"Ramsey county has a population of 7,000
people. Of these about 6,000 are engaged in
farming. Tha frosts last year cut off the
crops generally and the farmers were obliged
to mortgage their farms for feed, provisions,
clothing, etc., to carry them through last
Winter. This Spring personal property, such
as stock, machinery, otc, was mortgaged for
seed and funds to put in tbe crop. There bas
been a continual drouth tbrougnout the en
tire season, and the crop bave been almost a
total failure. The bot rowed funds are en
tirely exhausted, os well as tbe credit of a
largo number of these people, and we find
that in Kamsey connty alone there are from
L'00to50J lamilie-, farmers generally, that
are entirely destitute. In Nelon and Walsh
counties there is also great destitution and
suffering, and there are probably in this dis
trict ot North Dakota not less than 1000 fami
lies who are nearly or entirely destitute.
"We find also that there is a district in
South Dakota that is in like condition. This
district is embraced within Miner, Lake, San
born and Beadle counties, but it is surround
ed by populous towns and cities like Sioux
Falls, Yankton, Huron, Watertown, Pierre,
eta, and it U thought that if application is
made to these cities by the proper authori
ties in the several counties sufficient relief or
assistance can be realized to taae care of this
district for the present at leasr.

Council and commercial bodies ot St. Paul
