The Mauritania of the Ounard tine exile-ad

through $e lc lana travelled by the
Tllattlo and having had a similar ex
yartenoe of being warned to look out for
a dangerous berg.
Unlike In ihe oaia of the White Star
liner on her maiden voyage the fleet
Mauretanla elowed down to leas than
ten knote an hour and ploughed along
at that elow-for the Mauretanla-epeea
until alt danger waa patted.
The Cunarder sot the wlrelett tip to

Tuesday morning tlie AtlriaUc sighted a

The weather wee clear and warm and
the Iceberg wat visible ,mlle away. The
Adriatic elowed down and ran past the
laland of Ice, taking observations of Its
exact poeftlon. The passensers flocked,
to the rails and watched the great berg.
ADRIATIC NEAR PLACE WHERE
When they learned from the ship's
officers that they were almost In the
position where the Titanic sank there
wis considerable excitement on board.
Many attempts were made to photo
graph the Iceberg, but the sunlight was
loo-' brltliaht and the berg was too far
The Adriatic was tn wlrels touch
With the MauretanJa, which was racing
behind the White Star boV. at twenty

Adriatic warned the sklppr of the
Mauritania that Ihe berg was a danKer
Us one and that he had better keep a
harp' lookout for her when he came
long that night.
The Mauretanla did not reach the Ice
aeae until 11.30 o'clock at night. Con
dition were practically the same as
in the case of the Titanic disaster.
There was a sharp drop In the temper
ature ae the Cunarder approached the
location given in the wireless warning.
Immediately the great Cunarder was
lowed down to half speed and then to

ten knots an hour for the Mauretanla,

killed. I saw his body. It was the body of Rosenthal. 1 asked what
Webber was running away for? What he had to do with it? They told
me Webber had been talking to Herman Rosenthal just before he was
shot and perhaps thought that, being a gambler, somebody might think'
he had something to do with it.

"They told me that two men did the shooting. There was a crowd
standing around, who seemed to know who I was and was exerted and
anxious to tell. They said there were two ni'en who did the real Shoot

who shot him to make sure that he would die. They said that the others
ran over from the automobile, because the two who did the kilHng
wouldn't agree to shoot Rosenthal unless the others went with thern and
shared the risk, .
"Now, I have known Jack Rose and Herman Rosenthal since they
were boys. They went to school together. They quarreled and did' not

fitted up his house in Forty-fifth street, be had hard luck. The game
went up and down. At last he was up against it. He told his friends
