If these boats only got clear away the calmness o{ the sea and the low sandy beaoh only twcncy miles distant would enabie them to make a safe landing in a few hours. The passengers were ail asleep, however, and Hansen fears that few escaped. One hundred and sixty passengers and crew are still unaccouuted for. The following passengers from San Francisco landed safely at Mazatlan before the Colima proceeded towards Manz milla: E. W. McCutcheon, W. C. McCutcheon, J. W. C. Maxwell, H. M. A. Miller, L. F. Bell, U. S. American, G. V. Gray, and R. F. Crisby. All day long the offices of the Pacific Mail and the telegraph companies and newspapers have been filled with anxious friends of passengers and crew, making tearf ui inquirios about their friends. Many of the scènes wero pitiful in the extreme, and the most gloomy forebodinss prevailed despite the assurances of thu ofBcials that the Colima's machinery was in excellent condición, having been iuspected justprevious to her leaving; that the coinnuiuder and olliaurs were killed seiinien, and that the chances were in favor of the safety of their friends Among tho passengers unaccounted for are Professor Hurold Whiting, Mrs. Whiting. Miss Rose Whiting and two children, of Berkley. Professor Whiting occupied a chair in the S ;ate uuiversicy. A nother is 3. E. Chilberg, of Seattle, who was on his way south to interest South Ainorictin plumero ia % new steamship line between Central America and Puget Sound.
