MISSING PASSENGERS. THI COLLISION OFF IOOI OF HOLLAND. ANXIOUS TIME NO SIGN YET! ——. i -i*. another mishap befel one of the, boats of the Great Eastern Railway Co., and by the collision between their steamer Amsterdam and the 6.S. Axminster fearb j are entertained for one of the boats. The Amsterdam's passengers were mus tered on deck and the crew manned the boais and rowed them—women and child ren first-to the Axminster. It is one of; these boats conooming which great anxiety prevails, for, with its living freight of passengers and crew, it appears to have been lost in the fog. On Wednesday night the Great Eastern Railway Company announced t.ha.t a boat: containing seven passengers and five of the crew was still unaccounted for. and at 8 o'clock the company were still without news of the missing boat. STEAM LIFEBOAT IN COLLISION. Amsterdam, Wednesday, 11.50 p.m-—The liandelsblad's" correspondent at Hook of; Holland telegraphs :—The steam lifeboat sent out to search for the Amsterdam's miss- ing boat collided with a tug during the afternoon and returned to port damaged, but was able to put out again after re- pans. COMPANY UNABLE TO GIVE NAMES: COMPANY UNABLE TO GIVE NAMES: OF PASSENGERS. In reply to a representative the Coai tinental traffic manager of the Great i Eastern Company said the company would have readily furnished tl>e names of the passengers an the Amsterdam were they in a position to do so. "As a matter of fact," he added, "none of otir officials have any list, for a very simple reason. People book to Holland from our stations in the ordinary way, and we have no legal right to desire to know who they are, 0 or to ask them for their names and addresses. The cross-Chajine) traffic is very different to crossing the Atlantic or going to the Cape, though, pro- bably, it would be an advantage sometimes if a. passenger list were available for each steamer. It is dear, therefore, that any information as to the names must come from the other side of the Channel." MISSING BOAT: NO SIGN YET. The Press Association telegraphs that the officials of tihe Great Eastern Railway in j London are still without news concerning the missing boat containing some of the pas- secgers and cxew of the steamer. Tha lateet message received at Liverpool- street is from the Hook of Holland. It is timed 5.30, Thursday morning, and is to tha effect that the fog remains very dense, and that there is no information of the missing craft. DUTCH PASSENGER'S FATE. Among the Amsterdam's passengers were two Dutch gentlemen, Mr. Van Raalte, pro- fessor at Dordrecht, and Dr. De Raaf, of Rotterdam, who were returning home aiter attending a wedding in Norwich last Mon- day. The former has telegraphed news of his j safe arrival, but nothing has been hea.rd of Dr. De Raaf, a.nd his Norwich friends think I that if he were not in the missing boat he; would have telegraphed. The Great Eastern Railway Company had received no further news at two o'clock STILL NO NEWS AT NOON. The Press Association's Harwich corres- pondent states that no news of the missing boat from the Amsterdam had reached Parkeeton up to noon. The officials of the Great Eaei^rn Cb. a.re comforting the wives and relatives of the seven missing members of the crew by ex- piessing the hope that the Amsterdam's boat has been picked up. A dense fog prevails at Harwich, and none of the Parkeston bound steamers have vet arrived. AXMTNSTEP'S VISIT TO SWANSEA The Axminster will be recollected as the steamer which was in Swansea lasst M'av. She was berthed in the Central Dry Dock for re-! pairs, but the job went to Liverpool whence' she returned to Swansea again to load her cargo.
