COLLISION IN THE BRISTOL CHANNEL. FOURTEEN LIVES LOST. Fourteen lives were lost as the result of a collsion between the steamer Orianda, of Lon- don, and the steamer Heliopolis, of London, in the Bristol Channel on Sunday morning. There was a storm raging at the time. The Orianda was bound for Spezzia, in Italy, with a cargo of coal, and at about 12.30, according to one of the survivors, the Heliopolis crashed into her. The cre.v was quickly mustered and cried for help, but the colliding steamer stood off and did not, it is alleged, render aid. The Orianda went down in about half an hour, and the crew of nineteen jumped into the water, Captain Williams and Mr. Aitken, the chief engineer, being the last to leave the sinking vessel. Five were rescued, three by the Barry Pilot cutter, Britannia, and two by the ss. Eleba, of Stockholm, but Captain Williams, who was seen drifting away, shouted that he could not Teach the lifeboat. One of the men died in the boat, and the survivors, who were in an exhausted condition, had been in the water for about two hours. They had been fitted with lifebelts. Those who perished were Captain Williams, of Borth, Cardiganshire; G. Jones, mate; R. Hunter, second mate, Cardiff; John Hansen, second engineer, Christiania; D. Lambros, Cardiff; J. Volender, Cheltenham; H. Garcia, Cardiff; C. Juscata, Cardiff; George Vonofra- belos, Cardiff; John Morris, Cardiff; T. David- sen, Cardiff; J. Tallis, Cardiff; S. Stener, Liver- pool; and H. Jones, Bristol. We understand that the hull and machinery of the Orianda were insured for P-4,500 with mutual clubs.
