|shipping|| Steamship Valencia Founders at Cape Beal |
In the loss of the steamship Valencia of the Pacific Coast Steamship company, last Monday night, occurred one of the most disastrous wrecks in years. Out of a total of more than 150 passengers, only some 30 have been accounted for.
The vessel was bound for Puget Sound points from San Francisco. In the heavy fog it was impossible to see any coast marks and the vessel had to proceed on dead reckonings. Through mistakes in these probably, and on account of heavy winds and tide, the vessel passed the entrance to the straits and foundered on Cape Beale on Vancouver Island. And striking the rocks the first time the steamer, captain Johnson commanding, was able to back off, but investigation proved the damage so great that to save themselves, the steamer was again sent to the rocks, hoping thus to establish communication with the shore. This proved futile. Rafts were lowered, only to be swamped. Steamers coming to the rescue could only stand by and see the people in the rigging vainly waving for help.
The this writing the full causes and results of the disaster are not known.
