SKIPPER OF THE "BRITISH KING." HOW BRAVE CAPT. O'HAGAN DIED. WELL-KNOWN IN SWANSEA SHIPPING CIRCLES. there is no more inspiring page of lartry in the history of the mercantile marine than the account of the death of Capt. O'Hagan, of the ill-fated British King, which foundered in the Atlantic, with tha loss of 23 lives. Capt. O'Hagan sustained injuries during attempts to repair the damage done to the hub of tho vessel.-—On Saturday the ship had sett-led down noticeably, and realising the necessity for quick action, the captain hurriedly descended into the hold, but while IIp. was working at the spot where the most damage had been done. he was struck bv a heavy barrel, which fractured his leg in two places. Notwithstanding, however, the fact that the bone was protruding and that he had sustained internal injuries as well, the captain refused to be carried to his cabin, a-nd, after the injured limb had been bound up, he resumed the work of plugging the hole. Capt. O'Hagan is well-known in Swansea, and for some years traded regularly to the port in the same steamer, in the tinplate carrying trade to the States; a sister boat, the British Queen, being also a frequent visitor. The utmost sympathy is expressed over the melancholy end of so brave a skipper.
