BY LIFE-LINE, i SWANSEA CABIN-BOY I THRILLING RESCUE FROM WRECK. I News has reached Swansea of the, stranding on the sands off the New Jersey (U.S.A.) coast (near Marasquan) ot the s.s. Queen Louise, which left Swansea on January 22nd for New York, with 3,000 tons or tinplates, the local agent being, Mr. T- II. Couch. Details shew that the steamer had a. terrible AToyage, and this culminated in j her going aground on Saturday in a thick i fog in the locality referred to, a heavy north-easterly gale blowing at the time.. Latest advices shew that she lies within 400 feet from the heach. There were some thri iling rescue scenes, and a New York message states:— The waves were too high to permit of the launch of the lifeboat, so a line for a breeches buoy was shot from land. THREE LITTLE CABIN BOYS were brought a-shore Ernest Ro w, Gravesend, aged 13; Charles Punt, Lon- don; and Lionel Harrisen, Swansea. All came ashore safely, and Row, the eldest of the trio, brought a message saying that Captain MacDonald and crew would not think of leaving the vessel while there was a chance of saving her. Several vessels are standing by to-day to light-en the steamer. The wind has now shifted in a direction which will greatly aid the stranded steam" ship, and there was some prospect of her release during the night. The cabin-boys told a press representa- tive that since leaving Swan sea they had fought heavy gales all across the Atlantic, and four days off the American coast they ran into such a belt of storm, rain, fog, and snow that the captain LOST SIGHT ,OF THE SUN AND STARS altogether, and was compelled to rely for naviga-tion entirely on dead reckoning. Later.-A telegram from the captain states that the vessel was "driving far) up the beach. t With the exception of Harrison, a "Daily Post" representative was in- formed by Mr. Geo. Gunning, of the Sea- men's Union, the crew were all signed on at Immingham. AN ALLEGED "MUTINY." I Some prominence ha.5 been given ui a section of the Press (and denied in other quarters) to an alk-ged "mutiny" by Chinese aboard the boat., but Mr. Gunning doubted this, a3 he had no knowledge of Asi&tics aboard when she visited Swansea,
