Death List When Torpedo Boat
Destroyer Was Run Down
MOST OF THE CREW HAD !
NO CHANGE TO ESCAPE
Ship at Work in Intense Dark
ness; Crash Camo With
PORTSMOUTH, England, April 3.
Thirty-six men, including Lieutenant
Middlcton, the commander of tho torpedo-boat
destroyer Tiger, lost . their
lives in the collision off tho lslo of
Wight last night, between that vessel
and the British cruiser Ucrwick. ,
The vessels belong to the Portsmouth
division of the British home fleet, and
wero engaged in night muncuvers in
the channel, while ou their way to
Portland. The night was very dark,
and the Berwick was steaming slowly.
When the destroyer attempted to cross
the big cruiser's bow she wns caught
amidships and cut in half with knife
like precision, sinking almost immedi
ately. The dock crew, who were
dressed in hcavj- oilskins and boois,
went down with the vessel, not having
time to frco themselves from those
heavy encumbrances. Of the twenty
two men who were rescued, most of
them were engineers and stokers, who,
having light clothing on, were able to
keep themselves afloat until boats from
other ship.Sj which wero immediately
launched, picked them up.
Ships Were Dark.
The collision occurred at S;10 last
night. The ships were maneuvering
without lights. It is believed that sev
eral of the men were hilled by the im
pact. Tugs were dispatched to the
scene of the disaster at da3-light to
day, and divers made an attempt to re
cover the bodies of th men who were

Tho entire fleet was under masked
lights in absolute darkness and (lie Ti
ger was suddenly struck squarely amid
ships by the Berwick. The shah) stem

was brilliantly illuminated bv a con
centration of searchlights. The after
portion of the Tjger floated for a min
ute or two, just long enough "to enable
those on' board to seize1 life belts. They
throw themselves into the water and.
were able to keep afloat until pickcuj
up. Lieut. William K. Middlcton was
on his bridge at the timo of the dis
aster, and went down with the fore
part of the ship. Tho Tiger had a
complement of fifty-nine men and was
of -100 tons.
An officer who was an eye witness
to the sinking of the Tiger gave the
following account of the neeident:
Statement of Officer.
"Th? first we knew that anything
had happened was when we saw a flash
and heard a loud report. This we sup
posed to be a gun. In reality, how
ever, the flash and report resulted from
the sea water reaching the boiler room
of tho Tiger, causing an escape of
steam, which must have scalded to
death even-body that it touched. The
men in the stokeholes musl have" met
a fearful end. It was horrible to see
the forms struggling in the water.
Many of the men went under just as
hope was within their reach, j don't
think there is any hope of saving the
Tiger or recovering tho bodies, as the
wreck lic3 too deep in the water."
The Tiger was in a serious accident,
last September, when, during night ma
neuvers, she piled herself upon the

I The Salt Lake City land office has just
boon notified of two new laws passed by
; Congress during (he present session rela
tive to desert lands. Significant In tho
new rules, that go Into effect Immediate

forbid nil persona assigning their claims
on de.ort lands to .corporations and asso
ciations. Land frauds -have been preva
lent in the past, and CongrcHs evidently
Intends to prohibit further exploiting of
lhf publlr domain Desert entries on un
aurvoyed lands have been prohlbllod.
. The right of second entry was extended
to Include desert entries Just about two
months after Congress passed a law per
mitting j;coniid homestead entries. The
new law permits those people who have
legitimately lost their llrt entry to take
up laud and make n second entry. As In
the case of homestead entries, the per
son making' a second filing must report
complete details of the first entry. In
case the first entry has been disposed of
for a consideration, or ll has boon lost
through fraud, a second entry is not permissible.
The wording In the act relative to des
ert land entries Is exactly the same as
that used In the act permitting second
homestead entries. All rules applvlng to
second homestead entries will apply with
enunl force to desert land entries.
Though protecting tho country from
monopolies of do.'iert lands. Congress Is
generous with the Individual. The net
provides that the Commissioner of tho

Men Hold Meeting in Salt
;( . Lake City.
:. REVISION OF TARIFF
I TO BE STRONGLY URGED
An Effort Also Will Be Made to
Free the Fleeces From
Tho revision of the present tarilF on
; wool, the establishment of a large ware
house in Salt Lake for the storing of
wool preparatory to shipping it all over
the country, and the proper method of
packing wool in order to keep the fleeces
free from tho dir land other foreign
matt or which accumulates in them, wore
among the subjects discussed at the
mooting of the Wool Crowers' associa
tion in tlfe auditorium of ' tho Armory
Friday afternoon. At the closo of the
meeting a resolution was introduced
expressing the sense of the meeting aa
being in opposition to the sale- of wool
by consignment. This resolution was
passed amid great enthusiasm.
Nearly three hundred wool growers
of the iutermountain country were pres
ent at the meeting, which was started
in" the main room of the Commercial
club, but later adjourned to the Armory
iu order to accommodate tho largo
crowd. Many matters pertinent to the
sheep industry wero discussed and plans
arranged for the summer's season of
graziug. C. 13. Stewart, and E. 11. Cal
lister, president of the association. -gave
reports of their recent visit to Wash--ington,
D. C, to urge apposition to the
Burkelt bill, which was later intro
duced into Congress by Senator Curtis.
It has becu felt by the sheepmen that
the passage of this bill was dangerous
to tho .wool interests of tho country
and especially so to tho grazers of thfs
The objectionable i'oaturos of the bill
arose from n misunderstanding of tho
conditions which exist 'in the inter
mountain country 011 the ranges, and
penalties are provided in the bill which
might, apply to a thickly-settled terri
tory, but which arc not applicable to
sheep herdiii"' in such sparsolv-settled
regions aa the Utah deserts, which are
used for" winter ranges. ' U is felt that
n Ihe provisions of the bill arc en
forced it will be a serious handicap to
the sheep grazers here, if not a death
blow to the industry.
Mr. C'allister gave a talk on the
need of organizing for protection to
the interesis of tho wool growers here,
and urged action in support of the sug
gestions which have been made for a.
revision of tho tariff and which it is
thought will result, in a great deal of
benefit to tho grazers and all inter
ested 111 the. sheep industry.
Speeches also were made by Georgo
Austin, John JL Seeley of 'Mount Pleas
ant. Mr. Johnson of Idaho, Mr. Chap
man of Wyoming and Mr. Ostler of
Nephi, member of the Utah State Board
ol Sheep commissioners. j
, Throughout tho talks matters of great I
interest to the wool growers were dis- !
cussed. It was said that the Eastern
manulacturers claim that a loss of
about S per cent is caused bv the ac
iMiiiiulatiou of dirt in thn wool when it. '
is packed, and improved methods of
packing were urged iu order to pre
vent this loss. The method of selling
wool by consignment was condoned, cs
peciallv as it often results in a con
siderable loss to iJio shippers, who are
sometimes unnble to take advantage
of a rise in price which occurs after I
the wool has been shipped. The mat- i
tor of bringing nbout some revision of I
the existing tnriff laws in so' far as i
they relate to tho importation of wool
wns urged, as it is felt thn tth claws
at present nre hurtful to tho best in
terests of the sheep growing sections of
Tho meeting Friday was the second
grand wool growers' convention hold
in ball Lako aud was probably the
largest convention of its kind since- the
jNaHonal Livestock convention, held
here in 1001. About 100 new members
wero added to the association.
Great enthusiasm prevailed through
out tho meeting and the feeling was vx-
pressed that the coming year will be
unusually favorable to tho interests of !
the wool growers. J. E. Austin, presi
dent of the TTtah State Board of Sheep
commissioners, said that the output of '
wool this year probably would exceed .
that of last year by 1.000.000 pounds.
I his will .mean that tho total output '
will be close to lo.0Q0.000 pounds. The
present price of wool is low. but it is 1
supposed that the price will be be-
tweou 10 and 20 cents bv tho end of the
season. The output of lambs will also !
will be large and with the present price
ot lambs at about $4.50 there will be 1
a largo amount of money received for :
the industry. It was said that LTtah is ;
one of tho best States in tho Union for :
the raising of sheep, on account of its
excellent ranges both summer and win- '
tcr. .It is estimated that tho total I
value of tho sheep industry to tho '

WASHINGTON,' April 3. Leaders I
of tho two parties in tho House, agrerf SilP
that yesterday's engagement on the ' Jiflj
lloor was but a skirmish preliminary
to an extended battle, in which thd lj !
Democratic minority espects to flghiJ
out to a finish its programme of en- a
deavoring to secure by coercion ceN
tain legislation demanded by them, and' nL
in part recommended by the President; -Jr3
and tho Republican majority will jShI
abandon its defensive attitude ani
carry the -war across the border. Foil
the struggle both forces will strip for, Zlmf
action, and all such impediments aa "ISrS
private bills and minor legislation in
general will bo ca3t aside and trampled
Big- Bills to Be Handled.
Five of the big appropriation bills 'mm
District of Columbia, naval, navai 'mm
academy, sundry oivil and general -Msl
deficiency are yet to be disposed of, 'Slfl
and as the lighting order of tho mi-" ' 'lw
norlty is to compel action on selected - Si
measures by blocking all action, neithe'r vf?
minor bills nor debates of any length
must be allowed to consume the time
remaining. MY. Williams, the leader!
of the minority, denies that tho affray! ' fc 'aB??
was in the nature of a filibuster. He' M
declared today that the Democrats were
not filibustering, but "were intent fliiS-'
upon a serious and highly commend-
able effort to forco the Republicans to , gitf-
do one of two things: either pass ccr- 'Si
tain measures which most of them are' j Sty
DOrSOnallv in favor of. nnrl tcMpIi n? wflf".
Republican President has urged, or" -ffflb't
suffer themselves to be recorded openly' . "Js
and individually as Opposed -to them.'' 5.
The understanding from direct sources! ' f4HWi
is that the Republicans arc prepa're'il t
. to bear up against the warfare of tho , -
minority . for a limited time without t aH
recourse to the 'deadly weapon oi f "Tiki
the majority the Rules committee "r jHj
but that- the Democrats will not ba . ' A'j
permitted to imperil,. bv delav, the bi ' UP-M
appropriation bills, tu "other "words, re- . Lf ft it

glass, to the expedient of bringing in 1:

There was a slim attendance when, $r;-?
the House convened today; due to tho "Mb
1 strenuous session of vesterday, which 1 V -
ran far into the nigh'i. Both Messrs. lAAiS
Payne and Williams, the majority and
the miuority leaders, however, ' wero ?$pP
on haud, prepared for the further par- "?i ,
hainentary struggle, which was soon.
again under way. It was precipi- p
tatcd by a motion by Mr. Payne r
! for the approval of the iourual of ves- 'ik
Iterdav's proceedings. On that motion,
! usually treated as a formality, roll ,M
I call was forced by Mr. Williams. Tho t V
call served to bring out the full ''-7
sirength of both parties. The partisans ' ii 4.
on both sides wero evidently deter- r 'J' t
minel to conduct tho light to "a finish. , ?iafi"
Having accomplished their purpose '
of obstruction, the Democrats joined- 0 -Jffi
the Republicans in voting for the ap- t ;M
proval of the journal, the proposition "fil

Mr. Williams objected to its cousidera- ' 5M
rion, thereby forcing another rollcall t a ft1 '
and again the Democrats voted in tho 1 jSi

In explaining the Senate amend- fr

I "Does that, deficiency arise from anv ? Ilj d'

Mr. Tawney admitted that $10,000 rjL'jp? 1

The filibuster was then renewed, "Mr S ( .' 4
Tawney moved tho previous questiou -'flll'
that general debate close at once. The 'HV

Williams and the roll accordingly was i&?
called for the third time. 'ijlll1
Later in the day Mr. Williams re- $
stated his policy, as minority leader, Tlr Ti
for the remainder of the session. 'He, .fff H
charged Messrs. Jayne and Dalr.ell.with' .fl I
having used "some rather strong lan- SH-V'!
