DROWNE1) ON \!ONKYMOON URROISM IN VENICE CANAL DISASTERâ ENGLISHWOMEN AMONG VICTIMS. Deeply pathetic incidents are r ig the de- tails received! of the sinking of a > u!l passen- ger steamer in collision with an Italian tor- pedo-boat in the Grand Canal at Venice. Estimates of the number of drowned vary from fifty to thirty. Among the victims are s-vd to be two EnglishwomenâMrs. S. M. Drake and her daughter. They arrived at Venice on Wednesday, intending to spend the spring there. and were staying at the Hotel Boston. The bodies of two wo.nen have been recovered. The Gerinan imperial yacht Hohenzollern rescued a young Hungarian who was 0:1 his honeymoon, and whose wife, to whom he had only been married four days. was drowned. Lieutenant, Bossi, who jumped into the water to save a young woman, was surrounded by a number of struggling people, who dmg^nd him down with them. Others known to be victims are M. Mer- kinski, a Russian Vice-Consul, four sailors of the German Imperial yacht Hohenzollern [now at Venice), three Italian officers, and the captain of the wrecked steamer. There were many nets of heroism. A sailor named Scarselli saved four persons in Fllr- cession, says Renter, and a fireman named Rrssini also effected many rescues. One of the divers who helped to put cables around the sunken vessel reported that on looking through the saloon windows he had seen bodies in attitudes denoting terrible death struggles. The vessel was raised on Friday.
