LANDING OF THE SURVIVORS OF A WRECKED CREW
The survivors of the crew of the Don Quixote bound from New York for Limerick with petroleum on Tuesday put into Galway in the vessel's lifeboat accompanied by two officers and two seamen put on board by a passing German steamer to nagivate it to its destination.
The Don Quixote had experienced severe weather in crossing the Atlantic and lost the captain, first and second mates, and one of the forecastle hands. Finally it was found necessary to abandon her off the Arran Islands and take to the boats. A tug steamer has left Galway in search of the missing ship.
