"MONTAGU" SALVORS' CLAIM.

"MONTAGU" SALVORS' CLAIM. The wreck of the battleship Montagu has proved to the salvors something better than the average gold mine for profit. The work has gone on steadily, but on Monday was interrupted by the south-westerly gale. Nothing now remains above water of the Montagu at high tide, though her barbettes show at low water. The salvage men have been taking the sunken leviathan up piece- meal ever since they bought her for JE4000. The divers are at work every favourable day breaking her up with heavy charges of explosives and hauling up great steel plates. The first year's salvage work realised about JE10,000 profit, and on Tuesday 10,000 to 15,000 tons of the sunken ship still remain under the waves. It would take years to raise the last of the Montagu. The Santa Catcrina, one of the Spanish Armada ships, was sunk off the Shutter Rock, where the Montagu sank, but no trace of her has been found. She went down in very deep water, whilst the Montagu remained on a ledge of rocks. SPANISH WRECK FOUND. The Armada ship remains to be found, but whilst salving the Montagu the men have had the good fortune to stumble on a Spanish wreck, which went down off Lundy in a terrible gale 50 years ago. This stroke of luck means a very considerable haul for the workmen, as they own the Cornish Salvage Company, which bought the Montagu, and they are greatly elated at their latest discovery, They recovered a quantity of anchors and heavy iron chains from the Spanish wreck, and then shattered the old bulk with gun-cotton. There is much valuable material in the wreck, which will keep the divers busy for monthe.
