FAMOUS SHIP SAVES
INSANE CREW OF 16
Brazilian Government Presents a
Medal to Captain for Res
cue of Fishermen
NKW YORK, May 11.—The steamer
Tocantines, a famous vessel which ran
the mined harbor of Port Arthur to
escape from the Russians, swings
gracefully at her dock iv Brooklyn to
day after a trip from Brazil bringing a
new tale of adventure and rescue.
A gold medal won by the captain and
nted by the Brazilian government
commemorates the latest achievement
of tho little ship—the saving <>f sixteen
tishermen off the Brazilian coast on
March 22. The first of the sixteen men
was sighted by the lookout before
dawn. He was clinging to a plank In
the open sea, and was waving a weak
arm to the oncoming ship. A school of
sharks swam about him, and his res
cuers found that his legs had been bad
ly torn by the big fish. The man had
been in the water twenty-four hours
and had eaten his last meal six days
before. He had set out from Rio Ja
neiro with fifteen companions. A squall
took their rig- and left them to drift
helplessly. All went crazy but this
one man, and he was compelled to take
to the water to escape his companions'
After hearing his story the Tocan
tines cruised about for several hours,
finally locating the wreck and rescu
ing all the fishermen.

WASHINGTON, May 11.—Rising to a
question of personal privilege, Senator
i Piles of Washington today explained
1 to the senate the circumstances under
which Secretary Ballinger had received
his appointment as secretary of the in
| terior, and also those under which he
| had been appointed commissioner of
the general land office.
The explanation was called forth by
liie intimation 01 AiLuriiey twamieis,
counsel for 1.. R. Glavis at the Ballln
ger-Pinchot investigation today, that
Mr. Ballinger'a appointment as com
missioner, had been Influenced by Sir.
Piles at tin- instance of persons who
were Interested in the Cunning-hum coal
"No man in the state of Washington
or elaewhere ever miKgested to me that
I should recommend Judge Ballinger
for either position," said Mr. Piles.
"President Roosevelt said that If Mr.
Ballinger'a appointment would not be
objectionable tn me, he would be glad
to have me uire him, because, as he
said. Secretary Garfteid, who hyd been
a schoolmate of Mr. Ballinger, was
most anxious to obtain his services.

In respect to the appointment of Mr.
Ballinger as secretary of the Interior by
President Tait, -Mr. Piles said it w:is
through the newspapers he had re
ceived his iirst intimation that such ap
pointment might be made.
"I subsequently saw Judge Ballin
ger," he said, "and I asked him if he
desired the appointment. He replied
lie did not, explaining that he hoped
his friend, Mr. GarfteTd, would bo re
appointed. Subsequently I heard Mr.
Balllnger was to be railed into the
cabinet, but when I spoke to my col
league, Senator Jones, on the subject
I found he had not been consulted any
more than I hail been. We came to the
conclusion the selection of a cabinet
officer was a family affair with the
president, and no concern of oure."
Mr. Piles concluded with the state
ment, that the president himself would
