When daylight broke this morning a handful of survivors of the (treat Eastern Railway company's steamer Berlin, from liarwlch to Rotterdam, which was wrecked off the Hook of Holland yesterday morning, could still be seen dinging to the after part of the steamer.- The efforte made to rescue the survivors yesterday were continued throughout the night but proved futile, owing to the furious seas and the heavy snow storm which raged all night lung, rendering it impossible fur the tags or lifeboat to approach the ve ttontr hunt wreck, over which mountainous sea If you want to atom when a little continue to duti with terrible fury. the second-banBo intense waa the cold last night goes a long ways."

The stern of the Berlin la so firmly embedded In the sand bank on which she went ashore that it does not appear to have moved during the night. At high water this morning the poop deck houses were the only portions of the steamer visible and there the few survivors were huddled. A life boat, which went out to the wreck at midnight, accompanied by three tugs, remained there, anchored close to the Berlin but were unable to get alongside of her, as the heavy seas would have dashed her to pieces. The life boat men report that they heard an occasional shout for help, but they were fiwced by the rising tide and increasing dangers to temporarily abandon their efforts to rearue the survivors. Captain Parkinson, who waa on hla way to Amsterdam on board the BerPK01DF1T SPORTING lin to Join hia vessel, the Myrmidon, and take her bark to Liverpool, is the GOODS COMPANY . ole aurvlvor of the disaster who thus far has reached the shore.

The straggling little village of the Hook of Holland la filled with anxious relatives of the passengers and crew frpm Berlin and heartrending scenes are witnessed at the Improvised mortuary where thirty of the bodies which WILL already have been washed ashore are located. Most of these are battered ; beyond recognition and some ere without hands and others without arms or legs. EVENING .Veteran pilots and seamen, who watched the Berlin being driven to her doom, aay the gale waa the fiercest In many yean. One of the eye witnesses described the scene as follows: As the vessel approached It was noticed that she wan being carried out of her course by the force of the wind TO NEW QUARTERS and the tremendous driving power of ' the waves. The trained eyes of officials upon the Jetty, who were awaitWASHINGTON ing the steamer's arrival, aaw she was in imminent peril and n flare from the Berlin showed that the inevitable had AVENUE r been realised by those on board. the flare died out the crash came.

When the Berlin struck the waves were sweeping the northern part of the shore, which la little more than breakwater from end to arid, and tremendous leu, which washed over the Berlin from bow to stern, quickly battered her to pieces. For a short time the vessel lay at the mercy of the wind and wares. Huge rollers struck her and carried off deck gear and swept some of the passengers into the churning waters. Suddenly a great rent gaped amidships and the boat'a bow and si era parted, hurling nearly all on board Into the sea. The life boat Captain Jansen, which hsa a record of 436 lives saved, made desperate efforts all day yesterday to reach the wreck and rescue any possible survivors. Many times the lifeboat and its tug were flung back upon shore. Three times communication was established with the Berlin but the hawser waa swept away. Once he waa within 100 yards of the wreck and her crew could hear the criet of the survivors clinging to the wreck. Many doctors are swatting on the abort, here and have made attempts to resuscitate every one of thirty-thre- e bodice so far washed ashore, but their efforts have been fruitless.

Captain Parkin-so- n hurried to the bridge to offer Captain Precious hla help, but Just as he put his foot oil the ladder, he aaw the captain and pilot swept away by the seat.

Caalmost in tears as plin Parkinson was he recited what he had aeen before being swept away by the waves. On the fore deck of the Berlin at the moment of the disaster there were about 100 persons, all of whom were hurled into the sea. While Captain Parkinson waa in the water he heard all around him the milled cries of the drowning. He waa constantly swept against fluating corpses, and estimates that he must have encountered twenty bodies In this way. HEARD CRIES FOR HELP Aa the Waves Dashed Against Wrecked Steamer, the Ixmdon, Feb. 31. Noon. The Great Eastern Railway ateamer Clacton to Harwich title morning from the Hook of Holland where she arrived yesterday morning about . an hour after the Berlin waa wrecked. The Clacton stood by the Berlin all day and made strenuous efforts to rekcur the survivors An officer of the Cisttm today gave a graphic account of the scene, as follows: "On our arrival at the Hook of Holland we found the Berlin broadside upon the north pier end and we tt once net to work In an endeavor to succor the stranded steamer. The waves were forty feet high, for the waa tide at flood and a fierce gale waa blowing. We ot to close to the rocka but nearly went on them ourselves and had to put about in order to escape the fate of the Berlin. It waa Impossible for us to get out a life boat, as It would have been mashed to pieces In the raging waters. We could see people In groups on board the Berlin, some on deck, and some in the smoke room, upon the forepart of the vessel. As we approached, In nn attempt te rescue them, the persona on board raised a cheer.. Apparently thereat of discipline prevailed on hoard. All the passengers had been furnished with life belts and had gathered upon the lee aide, endeavoring to shelter them-selve- s from the awful seas which were breaking over the vessel, submerging her decks, funnels and almost her masts, at times hiding her entirely from view. When within n hundred yards of the Berlin, we threw out life belts with line attached, but they failed to reach her. It woe Impossible to take a line on board the stranded steamer, os nothing could have lived in the terrible waves. When the Berlin broke In two, the passengers and crew were swept off her decks In batches and drowned within a few yards of safety. We could do nothing to assist them. We saw acorea of people struggling in the water, cling for abort periods to floating wreckage, but In their benumbed state they were uqable long to resist the force of the waves and dropped off one by one. The following message waa received today from the Hook of Holland: Have been In the vicinity of wreck with a tug and life boat all night long and have Just returned. Whs unable to rescue the people still on hoard the Berlin. ' The captain of the life boat repprta that there are atilt three or four alive. .Will try again as the water tolls. The message waa signed by the marine superintendent at the Hook of Holland. id d PRINCE HENRY AT THE WRECK. Hook of Holland, Feb. 23. Prince Henry of The Netherlands, the prince consort, arrived here this morning and twice went out in a steam pilot boot as near the wreck as It was possible to approach. Subsequently the prince visited the building which ie being used a n morgue and passed down the lines of white draped figures, stopping with bowed head for a few mind utes before the body of a child. fair-haire- CAUSED A SENSATION IN BERLIN.

WHITE'S LETTERS TO BE PRESENTED BY DELMAS (Continued from Page One) New York, Feb. 22. Evelyn Nesblt Thaw has three day to rest and prepare for a continuation of the ordeal which ahe la undergoing at the hands of District Attorney Jerome. The Thaw trial waa adjourned last night until Monday morning after little Mrs. Thaw having spent the entire day on the stand under a searching, flaying croaaexamlnailon at the bands or the district attorney. On Monday morning xhe will again take the stand and will be forced to go Into more details of her eventful young life. All day lung ahe la expected tn be on the stand and there ia considerable question whether even then the district attorney will be through with her. Her aasoclatinna with both Whhe and Thaw, after her return from Bumps In lto3; the Interview a with Abe.Jtiuumel when was drawn tlie famous affidavit which ahe baa denied she had any part In framing: the European trip of J9o4; the incident of the Cumberland hotel and other incidents with Thaw, following her return; her marriage and the subsequent events up to the fatal night on the Madison Square Garden none of theae have been .inquired into on It would seem that had been tbg climax of reached yester.iay, but It la said tbs dietrict attorney expect to bring out on Monday incidents of at least as sensational a character aa those 4 yesterday. No woman ever before faced a more terrible ordeal on the witness stand than did Evelyn NrsMt Thaw an ordeal that Is not yet half over. Although it was very evident that this slender, frail rhlldlah wife of Harry K. Thaw was under a great train yester.iay, only once did she give 'way to tears. That waa when, alter fencing with the district attnr- ney for in hour, he waa finally driven Into a corner by hia almost brutal questioning end took refuge In team. But even then the tears did not seem to be caused so much by the details she was obliged to tell as by the fact that with all her fencing he had not been able to keep to her elf the secrets which she knew must Injure her husband's chances. Throughout the day Harry Thaw sat In his accustomed place at' the end of the table, flanked on tmth sides by his lawyers. When his wife wept he buried nls face in hla hands for a moment, but during most of the day he made notea on a pad of paper or conversed excitedly In whiapen with those of his counsel who sat nearest him. ' When court adjourned he bur Tied back to the Tombs with a smile on his face. The detail of the European trip of 1904 is arill to be gone Into. The return to America snd the false announcement of Thaw's marriage to Evelyn Nesblt when the first acanVnl arose, is still to I told of. The facts of the pursuit of the young woman hy Stanford White after her marriage, which the defense told of In the opening days, mutt he brought out The relatione of the two before the marriage must be described in detail. Evelyn Nesblt Thaw's ordeal la by no meana over. or course, the ariual truth of the atory which Mrs. Thsw told her husband and which Is said to have unbalanced hla mind, cannot, be questioned. If ahe told him the story and as a result bis mind became deranged, the truth of the story Is immaterial. All that the ctoexaml nation can deveracity of velop la a doubt aa to the the witness, a doubt aa to whether ahe really did tell Mm or not. That can show la all the all but one thing. It is for the Jury to decide whether constant brooding on the story which Evelyn Neshlt told Harry Thaw alamt bar treatment at the hands of Stanford White caused derangement of his mind sufficient to make him Incapable of knowing he was doing wrong when ha killed White. Did Thaws actions after he heard the story; did hia relablt covering tions with Evlyn period of two years after this revels-- , tion: did hla treatment of her, and of White and a thousand other things indicate that be w brooding over the story or that he was taking advantage of It? This I for the Jury to decide and thl is the doubt that District Attorney Jerome is attempting to Instill In the minds of the Jurors. Whatever the result may be, this Is Bakersfield. Cal.. Keb. 23.
