Hj BUCHAREST, April 9 The discov
cry of the yacht Ostnrn. stranded at
Sullna on one of the- mouths or the
Danube, of-the bodies of eleven notec
Russian men and women, each sho'.
through the head and not a living soul
on board has presented to the Human-!
inn authorities one of the most mys
trious tragedies of bolshcvisni in the
Black- sea. The bodies haVo becniden
tifled as those of members of the rioted
Russian families of Fnlzfeiu and Ska
On board the yacht were fouricon
million rubles in gold and paper and
1 The elder Falzfoin still grasped a
pistol In his hand when his body was
found and whether the party commit
ted suicide or were murdered Is a
question that remains unanswered.
Investigation Being Conducted,
fl An investigation is being conducted
b, the Rumanian authorities, aided b
Russian Trlends of the two families
Ah that is known is that the two fanv
ilies fled from their estates to Odes
sa, and when the bolshcviki arrived
there in February, put their belonging!
cn board the yacht, which was ther
towed by a Russian steamer bound for
ft Constanza. The tow ropes broke sev
j oral times, owing to severe storms anc"
j finally the yacht lost the steamer ni
. together and proceeded to Constanza.
The refugees were refused permission
f to land.
1 1 Drift at Mercy of Storm.
It is believed, as a result of the lu
estigation so far that after the yneh
lost its tow it drifted at the mercy of
the storm, and the refugees, six met
ML and five women, became exhausted
f Trom the cold wavea breaking over the
Hl cssel and lack of food. Unable to
manage the yacht, the party made a do
H4l .pairing effort to put her ashore on
H ' f. the desolate beach near Sulina. There
r tne succeeded in launching small
I boats, but Rumanian guards, under
BmV strict orders to permit no landing
through fear, of the bolsheviki. order-
;! ed them to return to the vessel. It;
appears that some coast fishermen of j
H. fered a rescue when the vessel began!
estllng, owing to theconsequent pound- j
j Ing of the heavy seas, but soldiers pre j
vented. How the families met their t
f' ocath probably never will be known I
i Some money and valuables were miss-,

W, Rumania has been asked to attempt to
H recover them.
Htt King and Queen Interested. .
HS King Ferdinand and Queen Marie of
HB Rumania have taken a great interest
Hy in the investigation because when the

IS AMAZED IT
WASHINGTON April 16. Attorne.
General Palmer's conclusions that the
"outlaw" railway striko was traceable
to activities of radicals and revolution
ists was sharply challenged tonight is
a statement Issued by Frank Morri
son, secretary of the American Federa
tion of Labor. An independent inves
tigation of strike cauRes by the rail
way executives, the statement said, re
ivealed "just a plain, ordinary strike
for more pay."
j "If there were enough revolutionary
I power in the United States to create
I such an outbreak as this," Mr. Morri
son said, "the condition would be ser
ious, indeed, But there is no sucr
power. Tho absolute failure of the at
torney general to grasp the true sit
uation is amazing."
The department of justice had no
additional announcements fo make to
night to support its conclusions. Thei
only development of the day affecting
the government's connection with tho i
strike situation was the organizatlor '
meeting ot tho railway labor board, i
J v hlch met with seven of its nine mem-1
bcrs present, elected officers and de i
Itennincd to take up, beginning to-
j morrow, the whole question of railway)
iv ugea at the point vhere the bi-partisan
discussion between men and em
ployers dropped it some days ago, un
ablo to reach conclusions. '
Tactico of Strikers Wrong. I
While tactics of the railroad strik-'
ers were wrong and disavowed by or '
ganized labor, Mr. Morrison's state- j
ment said, this should not prevent an '
"honest" understanding of the facts.
His own viewpoint as to causer of tho
'strike, he added, was based on reports
fathered by employers' representatives
net in sympathy with the strikers.
"I point to these rejorts and the evi
dence -they contain as an evidence of
governmental stupidity in dea'ing with !
the situation," Mr. Morrison continued I
"While the-government, through the
1 attorney general, is contemplating re-1
pression and punishment, treating th j
strike as a crime, the real omployers
Iknow that the strike is an outbreak
j against economic conditions.
! Plain Strike For More Pay.
1 "After rcaii'ng tne digest of these ro
I ports, tho conclusion is evident that
I whatever the merits of the strike, it is
I chiefly just a plain ordinary strike for
j more pay."
! New York and New England inves
Itigators reported they had found strike
I sentiment "strongest among the Intel
lligent and conservative men." Mr
Morrison said. Many of the strikers
j have served for long periods ou one .
I railway, he added, and never before!
(were known as agitators. Other ob-!
j servers found "no virus or disloyalty
or revolution in the ranks of the dis-!
affected workers except the usual ev-
idtnee of extremists who are 'riding
jibe strike as some time happens to
i he the case."
I Not Under Revolutionary Direction,
j Mr. Morrison declared the railroad ,
j executives were "fully informed" as I
I to the character of the striko and
''they know the outbreak is not under:
rr volutlonary direction."
; According to a data gathered by the'
j omployers from their representativer '
;in close touch with the strikers I
j throughout the country, the statement!
i added, "the yardmen's walkout is noi
of a revolutionary character or orig
, "The fifteen men who made the re- j
, port on v. hich this conclusion is based
art in close touch with these men and
are in their confidence. The associa
tion which gathered the reports comes
n intimate official contact with rail
way matters and is national in scope ;
It is not at all in sympathy with the j
strikers or their point of view.-
Radical Element Not in Evidence ;
"A digest of these reports shows that
jiu all localities the reasons advanced,
I by the strikers for their action are'
Istartlngly alike. "Every one of our in
j vestigators,' the digest says, 'is firm-!
jlv convinced that so far as his ter
ritory Is concerned the strike is all-i
(American and entirely devoid of bol
shevism, or I. W. W.'Ism, and Act up
, to the end of last week the radical
jelement was not m evidence at all. " j

AGLTA PRIETA, Sonora, April 16.
The state of Sonora will appeal to the
United States for recognition as a hel
ligerent. Announcement of the appeal
was made here today by Francisco
Bljas, a leader in the Sonora revolt,
against the Carranr.a government o:
Sonora hopes to be recognized as a ,
belligerent, according to Senor Elias
and thus forestall permission being J
granted Carranza troops to cross Unit
ed States territory to attack the stat
from the border. The appeal, if grant j
e.l also would throw open the ports of
the state on the international boundarv
to trade with the United States with 1
Senor Ellas said recognition as a
belligerent would in no wriy involve
recognition by the United States of thi-.
government of Sonora, nor otherwise
involve its relations with Mexico as a
whole. He said that In previous Mex
ican revolutions the United States had
recognized any faction aa a helliger- j
ent that had been in possession of any
port of entry to the United States for t
72 hours. Troops were ordered sent 1
here with aJl dispatch to guard the
city against any attack by federal au
thoritios when it became known the
government of Mexicohad asked th
United States for permission to send
troops here from Juarez. Chihuahua,
through U. S. territory. General J. M. f
Pina, in command of the Sonora armv
in this district, ordered all garrison
commanders to send all available
tioops to Agua Priota. Four hundrcc
vcre marching here from Naco, So
The Sonora officials said they har j
received assurances strong reprcsen j
tnlions would be made at Washington
against permission being granted !
They expected border American slate
to also protest to Washington against
tin Carranza request. I
General P. Elias Calles, commander j
in-chief of the Sonora forces, in a tel
egram received here today from Her-1
liioslllo. said Sonora soldiers were t
continuing their invasion of the state ,
of Sinaloa. but no mention was made 1
of their present whereabouts or wheth-,
er additional fighting had taken place. ,
WASHINGTON, April 16. While tlu j'
state department was considering to
day a new phase of the latest Mexi- j
can problem a request from the Car
ranza government that its troops be
given passage across American tern
lory to attack revolutionists in the i
state of Sonora Henry Lane Wiison, j
former ambassador to Mexico, was '
drawing a gloomy picture of the situa
lion beyond the border for a senate in-1
vestigating committee. I
Mr. Wilson asserted that "the unfor-'
tunate and mischievous policy or the I
present administration towards Mexi-1
cc" was responsible for the conditions j
he described. That policy, he added,
had "bound the United States to
maintain Carranza in power and with I
him the legend that there is peace and
order in Mexico."
Government Pressed to Comply.
The state department did not make '
public the text of the Mexican request,
nor was any official intimation given i
as to the nature of the reply to be 1
made or when It would bo sent. The j
only comment made was that the gov j
ernment was "under pressure" from i
Mexico to comply. The request con I
templated movement ot Mexican fed- j
eral forces by rail through El Paso to I
Douglas, Ariz., where they would re-1
cross, the border to attack Hermosillo
capital of Sonora.
J Mr. Wilson who was appointed to tho
most in Mexico Citv bv President Taft I
and continued there during the early
months of President '.Vilson's first ad
ministration before his resignation was
accepted, said both official and per
se nnl records he had kept justified his
arraignment of the administration's
' To date," he said, "it has cost the
people of the United States upwards
of a half billion dollars. It has led
ti the violent death of 300,000 Mexi
cans and to the death by pestilence
ar.d famine of 500,000 more. It has
caused up to this week the murder
of 665 American citizens within Mex
ico, it has kept eighty thousand of our
tioops on the border. It has left in 1
the Mexican treasury a deficit of over
$300,000,000 to replace a surplus of
$100,000,000 left by Diaz."
! William J. Bryan, as secretary of
slate, "ran the state department like
the back kitchen of a restaurant," Mr.
Wilson said. Almost every; diplomatic
representative of the United States
sent to Mexico since the fall of Diaz
and some officials at the department,!
he added, had been unable to tolerate
the Mexican policy. He named former
Ambassador Honry P. Fletcher, Geo. A,
Chamberlain, consul general, and John
Bassett Moore, former counsellor at,
the department, as among this number
j Much of the former ambassador's
testimony was devoted to the Btory of
the Madero 'revolt against Diaz, and
the following revolt against Madero 1
The policy of the United Statos, he j
said, had first become "Impossible" I
I when it Involved- an interference In j
Mexico to overthrow Huerta. As am-1
bassador, he said, he had predicted the !
result which ho said existed today and
had three timeB pressed his resigna
tloube fore getting It accepted.
Mr. WIlBon will continue his. testi
mony tomorrow nnd among olher3
utimmoned to appear later is John
