Beached at St. Jostinian's NARROW ESCAPE OF A STEAMER On Wednesday about 7 a.m. the ss. Scotsman, of the British Coasting Steam- ship Company, Ltd., Glasgow, struck on the Bitches Rock, in Ramsey Sound, St. David's, during a dense fog, and was beached at St. Justinian's to prevent her foundering. The Scotsman is a small coasting steamer of 200 tons, and a regular trader to Porthgain. She carried a crew of eight, her skipper being Captain Boyle, of Donegal. They left Bideford on Tuesday evening light, and the weather was fairly clear until they came to near the Smalls, when they were enveloped in a very thick fog. Her engines were going dead slow, and the steamer sounded her syrens continually in going through the Sound. The captain exercised great care as the place is studded with sunken rocks and the tides are very strong, When abouthalf-way through thevessel struck, and in a short time there was about eight feet of water in her hold. It was then decided to try and beach her, and the captain, seeing the life- boat station at St. Justinians', made for it, beaching her high and dry, berbows being only a few yards from the station doors. Chief- r coastguard Runh, at St. David's, with the life- saving apparatus and crew, was smartly on the scene. Their services were, however, not re- quired as the crew decided to remain on board. The place where the Scotsman struck is con- sidered to be one of the most dangerous in the Bristol Channel, and it was most fortunate that Captain Boyle was able to beach the steamer in the manner he did. as he had only just enough passage to steam through the rocks. She lies in a dangerous position, and if a big sea springs up will stand a poor chance of being salved. Only a few yards distant the Szent Istvan and Gascon came to grief some months ago.
