ROSLYN'S CHURCH FIGHT.
Defeated Candidates for Vestrymen
A Urge Election Frauds.
Justice Maddox in thn Suprcmn Court
in Brooklyn yesterday reserved decision
on a motion to set aside an election of
vestrymen held by the Trinity Kpiseopal
Church of Rosily n, L, I., on April 18 last.
This church, erected by Mra. Clarence

ha been more or less divided for the past
three years since the Rev. Clifford H.
Brewer, rector, took exception to a by-law
passed by the vestry in which that body-
took over the church music. Mr. Brewer
held that this was a confiscation nf one
or his rights in violation or tho canons
or the Church.
Tho fight came to a head with the
defeat of tho old vestry by candidates
who ravor Mr. Brewer. The plaintiffs are
Harry W. Moore, A, J. Penny and J. Earl
Clark, all or whom were dereated for re
election. They say their defeat was due
to irregularities in taking the vote. The
rector's side won by a vote of 21 to 18.

VtABHINriTO.f. April 2. "Shut upl
Shut upl" was the reply the wtreltM
operator or the Tltanio made to warn
ings or thn proximity of a dense field of
Ice less than two hours before the liner
truck the berg. Thli waa learned by the
Senate investigating committee this
afternoon from Capt. Ixrd and Wlreleoa
Operator Evans of tho steamship CH
fornian. It waa rurther established by Capt.
Iord that his ship lay surrounded by
Ice not more than nineteen and a hair
miles rrom tho Titanic from thn time she
truck until she sank, and but Tor the acci
dent or the weary operator going to bed
would have heard the call rrom thi
Titanic and proceeded to her asslstanc.
The committee seemed impressed by
the fact Capt. Lord regarded the Ice
reports he had received o serious enough
to warrant doubling his lookouts. Nn
auch precaution was taken on thn Titanic.
Much contradictory testimony was
heard regarding rooketa seen from the
bridge ot the Califorolon. Brneat Gill,
donkey man. swore that rocket signals
or distress from a neighboring ship wero
ignored by tho ofllccrs.
Capt. Lord acknowledged that the
firing of rockets from a ship three or
four miles distant had been reported to
him. but declared his officers told him
they were not signals of distress. Thi
ship, he said, would not pay any atten
tion to his own Morse electric signals.
Testimony by twelve members of thi
Titanic's crew corroborated statements
already made in regard to thn presence
of nn unidentified essel within few
miles of the Titanic nnd brought out
interesting details of tho disister.
