Norfolk, Va.. June 13.—It is reported
that the disaster in Hampton Roads
Monday night, which resulted in the
biuking of a launch from the United
drowning ol deven me:j, Including six
midshipmen, ho were returning from
the army and r avy hall at the James-
town exposition that night, and five
seamen who made up the crew of the
launch, resulted from the Minnesota's
launch being run down by a tug and
coal barge which the tug was towing.
The report which, it is stated, has been
made officially on boatM the battleship
Minnesota, did not give the name of
the tug or barge, it is said, however,
the tug stopped in the roads immedl
ately following the accident, but find
ing no trace of the object which had
been struck or any sign of life or any-
thing in the water, resumed her course
with the coal barge in tow. The pre
sumption is the launch, a small craft,
sank immediately in the darkness of
the stormy night, the eleven occupants
being caught in ifte canvas covered
craft, with no possible way of escape,
and carried to the bottom, drowning
like rats In a trap. It was raining and
the choppy seas sent the spray to such
an extent it became necessary for
those in the launch to have the canvas
covering buttoned tightly to the sides
of the little vessel. There was one
opening on each side of the canvas
for the passengers to enter and leave
the launch, but both of these, it is be-
lieved, had been buttoned down imme-
diately upon the launch leaving the ex-
position pier, shortly after midnight
and the little launch was making rapid
ly through the heavy seas for the bat-
telship Minnesota when she was sue]
denly struck and sent to the bottom In
several lathoms of water.
The only opening iu the canvas can-
opy which covered the launch is sup-
posed to have been in front, just
enough for the coxswain, who was
steering the craft, to see ahead. The
crash is supposed to have been so sud-
den that not even the coxswain had
time to Jump through the opening.
The only things reported found so
far are one cap, supposed to have be-
longed to one of the lost men, and a
fireman's ditty box. supposed to be
from the Minnesota's launch These
rwere found by the fleet tug Potomac.
The weather Wednesday morning con
tinued stormy in ihe roads and the
waters were too choppy to attempt to
drag for the missing launch
No information was obtainable at
Norfolk up to noon Wednesday as to
the identity of the tug and coal barge
which are said to have struck the Min-
nesota's launch Lieutenant Randall
of the marine crops, who came.ashore
with the midshipmen, missed the
launch on the return trip and remained
ashore over night.
