22 May 1902 in an article in the Morning Oregonian it stated that: Stories of eyewitnesses. Destruction of the Roraima In St. Pierre Harbor. New York. May 21 The steamer Korona had arrived from Fort de France, Martinique, having on board two survivors of the steamer Roraima, lost in the St. Pierre disaster. These are Ellery Scott, chief officer; Charles Thompson (colored), assistant purser. Both de clined to discuss their experiences. Neither shows much evidence of hard usage. Joseph Fralts, second steward of the Korona told the following story:”We did not know that St. Pierre had been destroyed when we left Barbados.”We knew that there had been an eruption, because we had heard the noise and had seen great clouds of ashes which had covered Barbados. We went to St. Pierre to. .get the passengers and mall as usual When we arrived off the town we saw that -it was in rums. Clouds of smoke were rising in the air, so that we could not see Mount Pelee. Streams of lava were running down to the sea and the water was discolored.” G. Johnson, of St. Louis, was traveling in the West Indies. and was at Barbados when the eruption occurred. He also came upon the Korona, and made this statement: “About 4:30 on the afternoon of Thursday, May 5, in Barbados. It suddenly became intensely dark. The people were panic-stricken. All the lamps had been lighted in the houses. A shower of volcanic ash covered the entire place to a depth of three inches or more. The noise of the eruption- was plainly heard, and sounded like cannonading. “When the Korona arrived off St. Pierre on Friday morning. May 9, the town was still afire. The place was a picture of absolute desolation. We went in until we were about 500 yards off shore, and did not see a living thing. We could not see Pelee for the cloud of smoke that obscured it. The water was full of floating bodies.” Captain John W. Carey, of the Korona, related how he reached St Pierre, and on learning of the destruction of the Roraima put back to Fort de France, where he took on board four of its survivors, Scott. Thompson and two colored men from St. Kitts. Roraima Survivor’s Story. “On the way up,” said Captain Carey, “Scott told me the story of their terrible experience. He said the Roraima got into the harbor about 6:30 A. M. on the 5th and about 8 or 8:30 a terrible explosion came from the mountain. In an instant it began to rain fire and mud over the harbor. Captain Muggah jumped on the bridge and cried, ‘Heave way and get up the anchor quickly.’ He then went forward, where he began to superintend the work of getting up the anchor. They had not got more than a few fathoms of chain aboard when there came a great river of burning lava reaching down the mountainside and plunging into the bay. It shoved the water back and rolled the Roraima on her side. Captain Muggah was on the bridge at the time. “With the rush of water the ship’s decks were swept clean. All her deckworks, boats and bulwarks were torn away and went overboard. Scott saw Captain Muggah swept away with the wreckage of the bridge and leaped from the forecastle head. He was dashed to the deck by the rush of the crew In their mad flight, and trampled under foot, and but for the action of two of the steerage passengers, colored men from St Kitts, he would have perished with the others who were burned to death by the lava, which poured in on the vessel’s decks. These men seized him and dragged him into the steerage, where he stayed with them, and by wrapping their heads in blankets they succeeded in escaping serious injury. “‘Meanwhile Thompson, the assistant steward, who was on deck when the first outburst came, succeeded in reaching his room and closing the door, where he stayed until the worst of the first shock was over. An open ventilator let the flames reach him, and he was badly burned about the neck and lost one ear. When the first shock appeared, he managed to make his way to the steerage, where he joined Scott and the two St. Kitts men in saving the passengers and members of the crew who were still living. They gathered these in the steerage, and all who were able joined them in fighting the flames back, and managed to keep the fire confined to the after part of the vessel until the French cruiser Suchet came along and took them off. “Before they were rescued they started to build a raft, and under Mate Scott’s directions this was nearly completed and provisioned for the attempt to get away from the death hole they were in. Scott says that when Captain Muggah was carried away with the ship’s superstructure, Daniels, the ship’s cooper. Jumped overboard and tried to rescue him. He had a hold on the captain and dragged him on a hatch cover which was floating near by. He then saw that Captain Muggah was already beyond all help. He said his chest and abdomen were torn away as though cut off with a knife. Leaving the body on the hatch, Daniels swam back to the ship and helped the survivors fight the flames. He was himself badly burned. Second Officer McCarthy, of the Korona, says the Talisman bad an even more peculiar “experience than his ship with the shower of ashes. The Talisman was 120 miles south-southwest of Barbados when the eruption came. He said: “When she came into Barbados, where we were lying, her decks were covered with the fine blue dust. Here was a ship nearly 125 miles from the island on which the eruption occurred, which experienced even a heavier shower of dust than we did, at 20. miles. It seemed to go up in the air at a terrific speed and to a height above the wind which, was blowing from the south-southwest, and then fail In a shower of dust at a great distance away.”
