FOUR LOST IN COLLISION. On the arrival at Hull of the steam fish- carrier Brutus, the captain reported that when about fifty miles off Lowestoft his vessel col- lided with the Lowestoft smaek Nancy. The latter was sunk, and four of her crew were drowned. One man, Alfred Beckett, of Lowea- toft, was saved, and brought to Hull. All the men drowned belonged to Lowestoft. Beckett's escape was a remarkable one. He j was in the sea an hour before being picked up. The names of the other men are David Ellis, skipper, married; Alfred Cudmore, second hand, married; J. Colley, and Frank Hey- wood. Beckett stated that he was below when the collision occurred. He heard a scuffle on deck, and at once made for it, but met the niate coming towards him. "Get )rour life jackeff*at onpe," he said, "we are lost!" Water was rushing into the cabin at a furious pace. Beckett had no time to look for clothes. He grasped a life jacket and put it round him. In a few seconds the water was over the bulwarks, and he was struggling in the sea.
