j SHIPWRECKED CREW ON BOARD SWANSEA CAPTAIN'S CHANNEL EXPERIENCE. STEAMER SUNK IN COLLISION IN A FOG. A letter was received in Cardiff on Thurs- day from Captain Bliault, of the Gulistan, one of Messrs. Strick and Son's well-known line of Eastern traders, stating that he had reached Greenock with 25 of the crew of the s.s. Athens, which sunk in the English Chan- nel in a fog after collision with an unknown steamer. Captain Bliault is very well known at Swansea Docks; he resided here for many years, and for some time kept the True Briton Hotel, High-street. The Gulistan was on a voyage from Am- sterdam to Greenock, and when some 20 miles off Portland heard the crash of a collision in the heavy fog prevailing about one o'clock on Sunday morning. She stood by, and presently sighted the two lifeboats of the Athens, which was a vessel of 2,199 tens, with 1,000 tons of coal and patent fuel from Cardiff to Antwerp. The crew picked up by the Gulistan included the captain, Roehling, and his wife, officers and engin- eers, and some 17 hands, all Dutch except one Swede. The captain's wife, in the hurry, put on man's clothing, and then took iier place in the lifeboat. When the crew, which numbered, all told, 24 persons, rowed off in the two lifeboats, the Athens was badly down at the stern, and her bow was lifting in the air and had risen fully ten feot. On the arrival of the Gulistan at Greenock the crew were taken to the Sailors' Home, where they were hospitably received, while Captain Roehling and his wife, the officers and engineers remained on board the Gulis- tan. They left for Antwerp on Wednes- day and Thursday. The vessel which sank the Athens is probably the Thor, which reached Cardiff on Wednesday and reported a collision in the Channel on Sunday.
