Ihe North Atlantic, according to testimony heard yesterday in
Washington by the Senate committee investigating the ocean
Captain James H. Moore, of the steamship Mount Temple,
which vas hurried to the Titanic in response to wireless calls for
help, told of the great stretch of field ice which held him or?.
Within his view from the bridge he discerned, he said, a
strange steamer, probably a tramp, and a schooner, which was
making her way out of the ice. The lights of this schooner, he
thought, probably were those seen by the anxious survivors of
the Titanic, and which they were frantically trying to reach.
Captain Moore denounced as "most unwise*' the action of
the Titanic's commander in rushing at 21 knots through the
night when he had been advised of the proximity of ice. The
Mount Temple's commander testified that he had spent twenty
seven years in the North Atlantic. Whenever ice was around,
he said, he doubled his vatch and reduced speed, and if he hap?
pened to get caught in an ire pack he stopped his engines and
drifted until he was clear.
The witness also was emphatic in his assertion that the posi?
tion sent out by the Titanic was wrong. He said the ship was
eight miles further eastward than its operator reported. This,
he declared, he proved by observations taken the first thing <*?n
the day ?cVytf?Bg the disaster.
With what virtually was a fleet of steamers within a radius
of fifty miles of the Titanic, Captain Moore said that this mis?
take in fixing accurately the position of the doomed ship was a
fatal one. With icebergs and floating ice covering the northern
sea, a ship of even the size of the Titanic might well be over?
looked, he said, through surh a variance,

regarding Loull Klein, who was brought
here from Cleveland on a suhjxena, fol?
lowlng his statement that the. officers of
the Titanic were drinking on the night
of the accident Lightoller said he had
seen Klein In Senator Smith's room, that
he had never been h member of the Tl
tanic's crew, as he asserted, and that he
had denounced Klein as an Impostor.
Klein has dltwppeared. and the. Impres?

that he had not experienced am SUCtlog

During the afternoon session seveM?
stewards and one quartermaster were
examined. They told straightforward
stories with ni'ich harrowing detail, and
at times there was much emotion among
the audience, which was composed ;?'
moet entirely of women, many of arhOM
could not keep back tears. Kspe. ?ally
was this true when an effecting scene
between a husband and wife, unnamed,
was described by one of the witnesses,
who was himself much affected and
harely able to control his voie as he re?
lated the distressing detail* of the part?
ing of a couple who were later reunited.
Most of the testimony given b) tha
