  • Biography*: Tourists Tell of Mexico Gale Escape
    Ship's Guests Watch Seas Wreck Roads Off Mazatlan
    Young Daughter of Local Woman Marooned in Hotel with Nurse
    Vessel Anchored Off Shore Compelled to Flee as City Suffers

    How their vessel had to scurry for shelter from the storm that recently devastated the west coast of Mexico, leaving parents ashore to fear that a craft had gone down with children aboard, was related by passengers on the Panama Mail motor ship, City of Panama and its skipper, Captain Charles J. Holland, yesterday when the ship docked at San Francisco.
    The city of Panama anchored off Mazatlan a week ago last Thursday, which was the day before the storm broke. A majority of the passengers landed.
    'Hot and Clammy Air Told of Trouble, Captain Reports"
    "From the ship's glass and the hot and clammy air." Captain Holland said, "I knew a storm was brewing. I anchored off Mazatlan until after nightfall, when I pulled anchor and headed for Pajaros island, seven miles northwest of Mazatlan. This was on Thursday night, and when we left Mazatlan, with most of our passengers and several of the ship's officers shoreside, the sea was calm and there was no wind, but on Friday morning the wind began to blow and a heavy sea was running.
    "By this time the City of Panama was anchored off Pajaros island, and the vessel was caught between the wind on one side and the heavy seas on the other. The ship, which was light, began to rock and was first on one end and then on the other. We remained behind Pajaros island until Sunday night. Monday morning we arrived again off Mazatlan, to find that considerable havoc had been wrought by the storm."
    Baby Girl of San Franciscan Woman Aboard with Nurse
    Little Betty Artiga, 4-year-old daughter of Mrs. Mercedes Artiga, 135 Hearst avenue, San Francisco, with her nurse, was aboard the liner when it sailed for shelter and her mother was shoreside. Mazatlan newspapers carried stories that the City of Panama had gone down to the blow, and considerable consternation prevailed among the passengers left on shore, many of whom had relatives aboard ship.
    "Mrs. Artiga, like many other passengers of the liner, was marooned in the Belmar Hotel, a concrete structure at Mazatlan, and the principal hotel in the city," said John Thompson who, with his wife and son Frank, was aboard the liner when it departed from Mazatlan for the shelter of Pajaros island.
    "I never saw a ship better handled than was the City of Panama," Thompson continued. "Captain Holland had out two anchors with 110 fathoms of chain on each anchor, and even then the swells shifted the vessel so that the anchors were dragged for a considerable distance."
    "Mazatlan has a ten-foot seawall on the west side of the city," said Captain Holland, "which withstood the storm in good shape, but the blow swept 250 tons of debris over the wall, washing out the paved streets of the city and depositing one rock that weighted 400 pounds in the lobby of the Belmar Hotel.
    "It was the worst storm I have seen in many years of seafaring life, and the remarkable part of it is that hundreds of people were not killed. It developed that few if any lives were lost, although the small shacks of the residents were laid low when the sea swept over the lower part of the city.
    "I was caught off the coast of Mexico in 1911 on the old Pacific Mail steamer Astec in a heavy tropical storm, and the recent blow was far greater than the previous one. In the latest experience we were more at the mercy of the elements because in case of the Astec the ship was heavily loaded, while on this trip the City of Panama was light, making it all the more dangerous, for those aboard ship."
    Mrs. Ida May Campbell, bride of charles Campbell, an engineer in the employ of the United States Government at the canal, was among the passengers of the City of Panama marooned in Mazatlan when the storm struck the city. She was a guest at the Hotel Francis, and like other guests of the hostelry, had to flee to the top floor for safety until the storm had subsided.
    Extent of the damage done by the storm, according to Captain Holland, is as yet unknown, although Mazatlan, where the City of Panama was lying when the storm broke, was hard hit but the number of casualties was small, although between 600 and 1000 residents of the town, which has a population of 30,000, were left homeless.
