Boston, April 25.-President Tuft
speaking in Boston to-night discharged
.at hf characterized a one or the most
painful duties ot his lite.
lb' broke his long silence on Roose
velt and told just what he thinks of his
predecessor and one time Mend.
Mr. Tuft acknowledged his deep debt
of gratitude to Col. Roosevelt and spoke
feelingly or the love and admiration he
.Hire hud had Tor him. But a situation
hail arisen, ho contended, which com
pelled him, a the titular leader or the
movement for sane constitutional govern
ment! to disregard his personal feelings
rtinl to speak plainly and to the point.
President Tuft thereupon charged
Roosevelt with deliberate misrepresen
ts; Ion of hifi (Taft's) speeches, with making
fa!-" statements in regard to the Presi
dent's attitudo toward Lorimer, with
i hanging front on the question of reei-
piocity in an effort to win the farmers'
totes, with having mado raise charges of
fraud against the President of tho United
state-, with having repudiates nis own
trust record and with having proved
limtelf disloyal a a friend.
President Taft disclosed the fact that
liooevelt approved of the support which
', (Taft) gave to Cannon in his candidacy
for reelection a Speaker, although Mr.
Jloosevelt now geeks to use the President's
lotion in that matter us a political asset.
IVesldcnt Tuft reluctantly characterized
'is predecessor as "a menace to tho entire
i.usiness community" and in effect ac
cused him of insincerity and a breach of
faith in the matter of his third term prom
ise. "One who so lightly regard constitu
tional principles and especially the Inde
pendence or tho Judiciary, one who is so
naturally impatient or legal restraints
and of due legal procedure and who lias

Taft, "safely be entrusted with successive

yesterday in St. Vincent's Hospital of
a fractured skull four hours after being
thrown from his buggy when lita horse
ran away. Hush, who at the wheel of
Croker'u car mlssed'death by Inches many
times, was not even on the way to a fire
he was going to luncheon.
"In all sincerity I say that John Hush
was unequalled us a battalion com
mander," said Chief Kenlon yesterday.
"He was one of the ablest firemen in the
world and had n wealth of experience
which makes his loss a great one to the
Fire Department. And he was one of
the bravest men who.evr lived."
Battalion Chief Rush and his driver,
John Harvey, left Engine so at Spring and
Hudson streets, where he made his quar
ters, to go to luncheon. The horse which
Rush was driving ia one which Chief
Croker drove berore tho greater speed
or the automobile ousted the horse from
the chief's service. It Is a skittish ani
mal, and getting behind a truck on Hud
son street near Cliristopher danced
around a bit and slewed the light wagon
against the truck.
The (latent collar snapped under the
strain, and the horse, plunging half out
of the harness and held only by the breech'
ing, ruced toward Christopher street
School children were crossing there
nnd Hush made on attempt to pull the
horse to one side and avoid them. In
doing the wheels of the wagon struck
the cur tracks and the light vehicle toppled
over sideways, tlirowing Rush and Harvey
to the btreet.
Hush landed on his head and Harvey
pitched on top of him. When the driver
scrambled off his chief. Rush was con
sclous long enough to ask Harvey to send
for his former chief, Croker, and then
lapsed into unconsciousness. Before the
ambulance came Father McQrath or the
Seaman's Mission, who happened to be
-. paiping. administered the last rites of
the Church. At. St. Vincent's Hospital
it was found that Chief Rush's skull was
fractured and he died just before 4 o'clock
without regaining consciousness. Ex
Chief Croker and Rush's seventeen-year-
old daughter, the only member of his
family left, were with him when he died
Chief Rush was 41 years old, having
been born in this city February 21, 1871
He did many things before he Joined the
Fire Putrol in 1S03, and the early portion
of his life a a hard one. He attracted
attention by his Intuitive knowledge

ioined the department he made a rescue

that Rush went to the Manhattan Bank
lire at the corner of Broadway and
Bleecker street. Two firemen were cut
off cm the sixth floor of the bank build
Ing and it seemed impossible to rescue
them. Hush crawled out of a window of
the building adjoining and la lancing
himself on a ledge only four Inches wide
with one foot on a small sign, reached ti
to the firemen above him. By the support
of Hush's bund they managed to crawl
along the tiny ledge to the window above
the one from which Rush had come ii
rescue them and got Inside sufely. There
was nothing but Hush s nerve and Mat

Soon after Hush passed the Fire I)e

consummate skill. Whirling over icy

many times wheels were smashed und
the chief und his driver missed death
or injury by inches. It is said that one
time on Second avenue, when a wheel
came off while at full speed, th
car travelled for n block on three wheels
under the absolute control of Hush
He became a picturesque character
as well known to the people of the city
as Chief Croker. One night Joe 1 raoey

He became a battalion chief on August

Wasiiinoton, April 25.-The injury
to the armored cruiser Maryland, caused
by her bottom being pierced by a torpedo,
will doubtless bo worth far moro to tho
navy than the cost of tho repairs, in tho
opinion of naval authorities.
The damago to the ship is not serious.
Reports from Capt. John H, Elliott, the
commander, indicated that tho repairs
would be completed by the ship's crew
Cupt. Elliott said that in torpedo prac
tice u torpedo pierced the plating in com
partment 85, making a threo inch hole,
almost amidships, about 11 feet below
the water line and llvo feet below the
armor I clt, where tint plate is less thin
an inch thick. Elliott suid tho compart
ment wits Hooded, but that in a few hours
tho leak was stopped.
dipt Elliott did not say what kind of u
bend was used on the torpedo. It was
explained by the naval authorities that

It was impossible to shake them in this

could not only sco the lights of the ship,
but also her motion as she rode the waves.
This testimony in corroborative of
that given by Officer Boxhall. who told

Capt Smith's messenger was one of

Ho told of u mysterious note that ho
carried from Capt Smith to the chief
engineer of tho Titnnio after tho collision,
ami in this connection recited tho inter-
leviing fact thut the lights In the stokers'
! room were out within fifteen minutes after
the ship struck the iceberg.
While the contents of this note will
never be known it is believed by mem
bers of the committee and others who
hnvo learned ol it that it contained an
order Irom the captain lo the chief
engineer lo start tho pumps. The lit

that would indicate that tho pumps of llm

awaiting his answer. Ho read tho note
and presently nslted me why I was wait

that will be attended to,' und I returned
to the bridge with this messuge.
"While in the chief engineer's room,
where I had been many times, I could
see the hole that led to the stokers' room
in tho hold of tho boat. This hole was
open, but there was total darkness in thn
stokers' room. I could seo nothing, f

Tho member of the committee to whom
this messenger told his story believes that.
tho darkness in tho stokers' rooinwithin

that watoi had reached the electric wiring
in this room and destroyed its use.
