|Had the tug 'Lorne' returned to Victoria from Cape Flattery,
when Capt. Cutler thought of coming, she would have been here on Friday and ready to render the
much needed succor to the steamer 'Clallam'. The 'Lorne' was at the Cape, riding the terrific
seas which swung her high up on a mountain of waters, and then dropped her in valleys between
like a duck. She ran short of water and Capt. Cutler decided to run back to Victoria for water
on Thursday afternoon. Soon after he stopped though, he decided that he would not come in
without a tow unless the company ordered him home. He went into San Juan harbor for water, and
then returned into the storm on Friday afternoon. She got the German ship 'Octavia' on Sunday,
and towed her to Port Townsend. The 'Lorne' arrived at the ocean dock yesterday with Thos.
Sullins and W.H. La Plant, both of whom had lost their wives in the 'Clallam' disaster, and both
of whom spoke bitterly regarding the condition of the vessel. They were straining their eyes on
the voyage to Victoria in the hope of sighting the remains of their loved ones.
