lashings, and carry them lnuto the sea
that had taken the others oft their ship.
The bitter cold and the water made
the men suffer terribly.
The foK did not lift until 3 o clock.
From then until 1 o'clock yesterday af
ternoon the men hung In the rigging
trying to sight a ship. The wind in
creased In 1U furv and swayed the top
mast, to which they clung. Boats or
dinarily on the bay had crept Into safe
harbor.
Finally, an hour after noon the Penn
sylvania hove in sight. She put off
boats, and while the wind tossed the
small ship's boat around like chips, the
eight men were taken from the spar
and hauled up the side of the Penn
sylvania. Ship Was Quite Large.
The Julia Luckenback was a freight
steamer, built In 18S2 In Rotterdam, Hol
land, and had a gross tonnage of 3,100
and a net tonnage of 1.ST7.
She was 313 feet long and has been
engaged in the general cargo trade be
tween San Juan, P. R., Baltimore, Phil
adelphia and New York for several
years.
The revenue cutter Apache, racing
down the bay in the nope of picking
up some survivors of the steamship
Luckenback, Which sank off Tangier
Sound last night, reported by wireless
at noon, giving her position as off
Polnt-No-Polnt, making full speed.
The Apache had passed and com
. munlcated with the bay steamer Flori
da, which gave the position of the
sunken craft as off "Point Smith. The
Apache will cruise the waters near
Tangier Lump gas buoy In the hope
of picking up possible survivors.
Stories of Havoc
' Dealt by Storm
Here Over Wireless
Graphic descriptions and steles of
the devestatlng storm which swept the
Atlantic Coast yesterday, damaging
ships, docks, and coast towns, filtered
into Washington today over the Gov
ernment wireless, and the few tele
graph wires which the storm did not
break. It was not until early today that
the 1 -Navy Department's anxiety for
complete newj of the battleship and
auxiliary fleets at Hampton Roads was
allayed by receipt of reports from the
commandant of the Norfolk navy yard
that all vesnsels were safe and no great
damage had been done.
The battleship and torpedo boat fleet
was whirled about in the hurricane, a
number of vessels reporting smashed
life-boats and small gear carried away
by giant waves. Even the super-dreadnoughts
were tossed about like chips of
wood by the angry sea.
Every -vessel of the Atlantic fleet,
from. small torpedo boats to giant bat
tleships, was reported to be safe today.

FERRIS UNABLE
TO SATISFY FOES
Oklahoma Congressman Says Opposition to Public Land
Chairmanship Is Unfounded, But Enemies
Point to Record.
By JUDSON
Congressman Scott Ferris of Okla
homa, protests that there Is no justi
fication for the opposition which the
conservationists are directing against
his selection as chairman of the House
Committee on Public Lands. He lBsued
a statement today, which he believes
covers the ground: but it has not served
to satisfy his opponents.
"If Mr. Ferris will state that he is in
favor of our propositions," said a leader
In the conservation movement, "and can
prove by his record that he has been
consistently for them, there will be no
reason to oppose blm. The proposals
we want him to support arc:
"Leasing the grazing lands within the
Government domain.
"The Government to be compensated
for the uso of vvaterpowers.
"The Government to reserve the right
to regulate rates on water power, if
the States do not exercise that light,
"Retaining the national forests un
der the Federal Government, ap they
now are. Instead of turning them over
to the States. ,
"Support of the present administra
tion of the national forests.
"Opposition to the cession of any of
the public domain to the States.
"Mr. Ferris cannot commit himself
to these propositions and prove by hir
record that he favors them, because
the Record would disprove It.-
Point To Record.
"He is not in favor of the now ac
cepted idea of forest conservation, be
cause he opposed the. first Appalachian
and White Mountain reserve bill in the
Sixtieth Congress, and opposed the
Weeks bill in the Sixty-first Congress,
which is the basis .for the creation of
reservations in the White and the
Southern Appalachians to prbtect -water
and stream flow.
"Early in his Congressional career Mr.
Ferris Introduced and was active In
ettortH tn have Dassed. a bill granting
tree homesteads in Oklahoma without
restrictions of safeguards oemg tnrown
around the grants.
"When the Mondell Alaska coal land
leasing bill was reported by the public
lands committee, Mr. Ferris did not vote
against It. Instead, he voted "present.
Now, that bill was variously described
in the debate as 'not a conservation bill,
hut a hill that if enacted would practl-
scally give away a large part of our na
tional domain 10 wen wiui ;
years been attempting to defraud the
Government out of its coal lands.' This
bill was bitterly opposed by the real
conservationists, and was attacked by
manv of the Democratic colleagues of
Mr. Ferris. It provided for leasing 2.660
acres to one person or association, which
would have created monopoly. It left
also authority in the hands of the Sec
retary absolutely. It gave fraudulent
entrymen a preferential right, which
would have allowed the Cunningham
claims to go to patent It provided no
safeguards against a tight monopoly of
the Alaska coal fields.
He Voted "Present"
-Yet Mr. Ferris" did not vote against
that bill. He voted 'present.'
"The water power question Is the most
rar-reaching and vital, today In this
conservation campaign. In the Slxtj
second Congress the Raker bill was con
sidered at length, and overwhelmingly
defeated. Let us see what that bill In
tended to accomplish. It would havo
established a precedent for water power
! companies taking and using national
forests and public lands, without regard

courts Vet Mr. Ferris stronclv sud-
ported the bill. When It was before the "i have just read the article In The
Jiouse he handled the debate In favor) Tln,es which. In effect, says that there

"It was brought out on the floor and
openly charged In the debates that a
costly and powerful lobby was working
for this bill. The National Conserva
tion Association fought the measure
verv hard, and President Plnchot Issued
a circular attacking It as a concession

trust. Mr. Ferris, in closing the debate
for this vicious measure, said:
What Ferris Said.
"'I never was as positive In my life
that a bill was so absolutely free from
fault and the victim of overexcltement
as this one.'
"Evidently the House didn't agree
with Mr. Ferris, for the blllvvas de
feated by a vote of 27 to 98.
"Again. Mr. Ferris voted for the
Coose river dam bill, which was jammed
through Congress In the last days of
the last session, and afterward vetoed
bv- President Taft. He opposed the
Humphrey amendment, which provided
for payment to the Government of a
minimum charge for water-power sites
and for Federal regulation of rates to
consumers of power if the States should
not provide such regulation.
Question Important
"There will be no question before the
next Congress of more Importance to
the American people for this genera
tion and those to come, than the solu
tion of the water power problem. When
one considers that in the National
Forests alone there remains about thir
teen million horse power the larger
part of the water power In the West
not now in private hands being In the
National Forests together with other
water power on the pobllc domain. It
Is clear that the House Public Lands
Committee will have a direct bearing
upon how the problem of a water power
policy for our publicly owned water
jit " ,a Blvea- certainly Mr. Ferris
win not be in favor of the solution of
this question as Btated by Colonel
Bryan in his Kansas City speech be
fore .the Conservation Congress he has
gone on record in the other direction.
Again, one of the big questions be
foce coming sessions will be the dls
Posalof the great public grazing lands
which now comprise about one-sixth of
the United States. The solution of this
question as proposed by the conserva
tionists la set forth in some respects in
the Lever bill, which provides Federal
control of these lands under a leasing
system. The other side of the question
Is to turn them over to the States, which
will undoubtedly mean monopolization.
Federal Control Disliked.
"On hearings before the House Public
Lands Committee, held last session, re
lating to this legislation, Mr. Ferris
clearly showed that he Is not In favor
of Federal control.
"It should further be noted that only
last year when the question of an addi
tional appropriation for the forest
service with which to meet Improve
ments to tight the forest fires which
devastate so much of the timber of
the national forests, to say nothing of
the human lives that have been lost,
and will be lost If adequate appropria
tions are not made for this purpose
Mr. Ferris went on record against this
increased appropriation- He Is not In
sympathy with the present administra
tion of the forests in the West under
me .national rorest service.
"Mr. Ferris was one of the gentle
men who opposed Secretary Fisher's
amendments to the homestead bill,
which would have thrown minor safe
guards around the taking up of home'
steads so as to prevent homesteads
benig taken up under that name with
the real purpose of securing valuable
mineral lands and water power sites.
Favors Distribution.
"It is clear not only from his record
but from his attitude that Mr. Ferris Is
not in smpathy wltlv the conservation
policies, and thavlie favors the easy
road of giving everything away with
out any Federal regulation or safe
guard."
. Mr. Ferris' statement issued today fol
my selection as chairman of the Pub
lic Lands Committee.
Talk With Smoot.
"The facts are: I have just called by
phone Senator Smoot, chairman of the
Public Lands Committee of the Sen
ate, and he tells me that there Is no
such bill pending, and no such bill
has ever received consideration at their
hands, and no word has ever been ut

Daughter of English Premier

Miss Violet Asqulth, daughter of Her

Britain, likes Washington immensely.
As the guest of Mrs. James Bryce,' at
the British embassy, she is supposedly
surrounded by certain diplomatic for
malities and conventions which J not
embarrass her in the least. She Is many
degrees nearer to the typical American
girl than the English damsel In spirit,
for she is athletic, dashing, with more or
less Impatience for the precise ways
of official society, and with a mind of
her own.
Although Washington society is anx
ious to entertain her, she refuses to
have any program of formal events ar
ranged for her. and Is just enjoying
herself In an Informal way as a guest
of the British embassy. Today she
went out for a long jaunt, unescorted,
thereby shocking a number of embassy
attaches who are unaccustemed to se
4ng the daughter of -an English premier,
especially a stranger In the city, walk
ing the boulevards of Washington alone.
She has confided to her friends at the
embassy that Washington appeals to
her more than New York, and that she
would enjoy a long visit here. She Is
traveling with Lady Aberdeen, who is
interested in the anti-tuberculosis move

Ugh! How Children
Hate Cutor Oil
To clean the little one's stomach
liver and waste-clogged bowels
give gentle "Syrup of Figs."
Look back at your childhood days.
Remember the physic .that mother in
sisted on castor oil. calomel, cathartics.
How you hated them, how you fought
against taking them.
With our children it's different.- The
days of harsh physic Is over. We-don't
rorce the liver and thirty feet of bowels
now; we coax. them, v We have no
dreaded after effects. Mothers who
cling: tothe old fornrof physic simply
don't realize what they do. The chil
dren's revolt Is well-founded. Their
little stomachs and tender bowels are
Injured by them.
If your child is, fretful, peevish, half
sick, stomach sour, breath feverish and
Its little system full of cold; has diar
rhoea, sore throat, stomach ache,
doesn't eat or rest well remember
look at the tongue, If coated, give a
teaspoonful of Syrup of Figs, then
don't worry, because you surely wilt
have a well, smiling child in a few
hours.
Syrup of Figs being composed entire
ly of luscious figs, senna and aromatlcs,
simply cannot be harmful. It sweetens
the stomach, makes the liver active
and thoroughly cleanses the little one's
waste-clogged bowels: In a few hours
all our bile, undigested fermenting food
and constipated waste matter gently
moves on and out of the system with
out griping or nausea.
Directions for children of all ages,
also for grown-ups plainly printed on
the package.
By all means get the genuine. Ask
your druggist for the full name, "Syrup
of Figs and Elixir of Senna," prepared
by the California Fig Syrup Co. Ac
cept nothing else.
"TALKIES" BY NEW
EOISON INVENTION
Perfected Device Turns Film
Pictures Into Real Plays
for Small Price.
NEW YORK, Jan. 4. Talking movies,
the newest invention of Thomas A. Edi
son, which has been promised for sev
eral years, are now en exhibition by
the wizard inventor In his laboratory
in West Ornnge. N. J.
In the six reels of pictures, revealing
singers, musical Instruments, breaking
of dishes, barking of dogs, and a variety
of other action. There was virtually a
perfect synchronizing of sound and ac
tion such as never before has bean
shown in any attempted combination
of motion clotures and words or music.
Scenes from plays and parti of grand
opera and musical comedy were given.
'" The device which Edison has In
vented does not permit the deviation
of the picture from the sound by the
slightest fraction of a second. With
every gesture of the actor In the movies
came the proper word at the exact
time.
The presentation of a play, musical
comedy, grand opera, or historic events
in such a form at 5 cents is one of
the dreams of Edison. He discussed bis
ambition freely after the exhlMUea.
His gray eyes lit up and be rubbed
his gray hair enthusiastically as ha
spoke. When asked what be thought of
tne device. He saia:
"Is It perfect? By no means
Nothing that I know of Is perfect.
Every man needs & doctor once la a
while to Ox him up, and so anything
I might Invent could not be equal to
a human being.
"But the way now Is clear to the
presentation of all forms" of plays,
musical comedies, grand opera, .and
similar things by the klnetophone. The
greatest thing of all Is that the device
rrakes It possible to give a play by
me vkmi onunaun ana oy tne oest
