All the World Demands the Full
Facts of the Titanic's Tragic End
NOT today nor even a good many tomorrows will suffice for
the fulftelling of the Titanic's story of woe unutterable. It
will take time and patience to bring out the details of this, the
riost tragic of the sea's uncounted tragedies—time, patience and
As the £ale is told in the news pages of today's Call, vividly
and with the unstudied dramatic effect of narrators fresh from see
ing much and suffering much, there is surely horror enough, a suf
ficiency of pathos. Yet these are but the broader outlines. Human
ity, stirred profoundly by this staggering calamity, must have all
the facts—demands them in the name of sixteen hundred and odd
that lie with the wreck of the giant steamship in the dark and icy
There are a number of things pertinent to the loss of the Titanic
that can be ascertained only by competent authority examining wit
nesses under oath, authority strong enough to compel attendance
and testimony and high enough to reach conclusions of blame and
exoneration which the world will accept. The committee of the
United States senate, which will its hearings in Xew York
today, has the authority and evidently means to use it. The exami
nation of this committee will undoub.edly be exhaustive.
Probably the most conspicuous witness to be heard is J. Bruce
Ismay, controlling director of the steamship company, who saved
himself from the wreck by means yet t.. be disclosed. Ismay can
tell about that, and then he can tell why the Titanic had boats enough
for only 745 out of its 2.350 souls aboard. Ismay can tell under
what orders the vessel was moving, both as to course and speed.
If there be any other than a merely physical reason for the
holding back of news from the Carpathia for nearly four days, then
Ismay can tell about that also. Those were agelong days of agony
and sickening suspense for the relatives of many of those who sailed
or were supposed to have sailed in the Titanic. All the world felt
the pain of that waiting. If it was delay not of necessity, then it was
a superadded cruelty for which somebody ought to be made to suffer.
The senate acted wisely in ordering its inquiry while the wit
nesses are within reach and while the facts are still fresh in their
minds. Its committee should be able quickly to get to the bottom
of the terrible affair. The blame can be. must be, definitely fixed.
Only in that way can this and other governments determine what
is needed further to provide against the newer perils of the sea that
have come with the craze for speed, size and luxury of passenger
personal or political resentments into the conduct of official
*" business and the distribution of patronage. His sense of the
responsibilities of his high office is such that
he can not even contemplate the use of any
of his official authority for his own political
An example of this spirit and policy is
found in his reappointment of David M. Little to be collector of
customs at Salem, Mass. Mr. Little is actively supporting Colonel
"Roosevelt for the republican nomination for president, and Repre
sentative Gardner of the same state feared that this fact might
weigh against Little when the question of his job came up for con
sideration by the president. That showed how incapable the average
politician is of understanding that the president does not do politics.
In explanation of his position Mr. Taft writes to Mr. Gardner:
As a matter of fact, I sent Mr. Little's reappointment to the senate
yesterday, and would not think of recalling him. I have removed no one
in this campaign because of his political views, and I do not intend to
begin to do so now.
The truth is, there never has been a time, with which I am familiar.
in the history of politics in this country, when the political support of the
edera! office holders, such as it is, has been so divided, and at no time has
the federal patronage exercised less influence in the national convention
than it will in the one to be held at Chicago.
It is a manly letter and it states the truth. We know it is true
of California that the federal office holders are taking no present
part in politics, local or national, and we do not need Mr. Taft's
assurance to understand that even if they were opposing him for
renomination this course would not be held up against them in
matters of the distribution of patronage. Mr. Taft fierhts fairly
tant application ot this material of so many wonderful and
able results from a series of tests in the use
of solid fuel oil, and, among others, these are
Heavier Armaments—The immensely en
hanced driving power of solid oil compared,
bulk for bulk, with coal, permits of much
cr armor, guns and machinery.
Simplicity—Hlocks of solid oil require practically no alteration of
arty soft to firegrates or bunkers built for coal.
Speed. Striking Power and General Mobility—Every ton of solid
petroleum is equivalent to at least 2 T /2 tons of coal. Combustion, in strong
ceetrast to that of coal, is practically perfect. Steam can be raised
■ ithifl a tew minutes. The material increase in the rapidity of a vessel's
striking power is the* at once apparent. The radius of action is also
increa>ed by at least I'TO per cent.
In addition to these qualities solid oil develops no inflammable
Raso. even in a hot'bunker, and this fact greatly reduces the danger
of fire. It can be handled with much less labor than coal, so that
the fighting force of the ship can be increased.
The oil is solidified by a new chemical process operated in a
revolving mixer, with the addition of a powder whose composition is
a trade secret. The oil comes out in soft but solid lumps, which
harden after a short exposure to the air. The lumps of oil burn
like coal, except that the residuum of ash is only about 1 per cent.
It is thus the most perfectly combustible of all practicable fuels and
the easiest to handle.
The importance of this process for the solidification of fuel oil
afreets California interests in a material way. Apparently the oil
after solidification, can be used for making steam in the ordinary
type of coal burning engines.
Oil the Next
in newspaper work, and that there be a state board of exam-
I iners to pass upon the ability and qualifications
of those who would practice the art. The idea
is to put the newspaper man in the same class
with chauffeurs, doctors, dentists, plumbers
J and lawyers.
It is difficult to believe that the suggestion was made by a
newspaper man, even though it had its conception within the Edi
lorial association of Pennsylvania. Some politician was doubtless
behind it, some one with a notion of getting on the board of exam
iners so that he could excommunicate certain particular gentlemen
of the press.
However, the suggestion isn't one which would make a news
paper man nervous. It could never apply. A reporter, presumably,
would have to be licensed, under the system, before he could inter
view an actress on her divorce or a banker on his dividends. The
state board of examiners would face each intending journalist with
a list of questions:
"How would you conduct an interview?"

"Do you favor the initiative, referendum and recall, or would

If a license issued to a newspaper man did not protect the public
any better than a license issued to a chauffeur there would be little
use in adding the burden of a commission to the state. The chief
difficulty with the proposed regulation would be that every crooked
politician, every man who intended eloping with his neighbor's wife,
every promoter who wanted free advertising for his oil stock, would
want to get on the commission, which, to a certain extent, could
control a portion of the press by the exercise of its licensing power.
Such a law would make life too difficult for the governor. He would
never dispose of all the applicants for places on the board of news

to meddle with the internal affairs of the neighbor republic.

I lations of law have occurred, to the cost and
i injury of American citizens, but it pleads that
these injuries are due to circumstances over

public has no control.
This is an unfortunate confession. Its logic is that if these
injuries and crimes are to continue Uncle Sam would be compelled
to take an active hand in the game. Of course, the United States
does not want to do anything of the sort, and we can only hope for
the present that these circumstances which Madero admits he can
not now control will be speedily eliminated.
Not much attention need be paid or particular weight given to
the tone of the reply. That is partly the language of diplomacy and
in part the policy of keeping a stiff upper lip for effect at home.
Doubtless the Mexican people will be pleased to see their govern
ment standing to its guns and will forget or ignore the confession of
uncontrollable circumstances. The American nation can afford to
regard the position in a temperate fashion in the hope that Madero
can yet establish himself and pacify the country. That, of course,
is the end to be desired, and it must not be forgotten that powerful
interests are engaged in an active campaign to compel the United
States to invade Mexico and take up the job of eliminating those
unhappy circumstances which hitherto Madero has been unable
At the same time we need not conceal from ourselves the fact
that things are still in a bad way in Mexico. The habit of revolution
appears to have become established, and when we consider the
political inexperience and illiteracy of the Mexican people, coupled
with the fact of enormously rich resources inviting plunder, we may
be able to realize some of the difficulties of the situation with which
Madero must cope. But for the present Uncle Sam's business is to
sit tight and exercise such patience as he may command with a
sense of sympathy for a neighbor striving to establish a free and at
the same time stable government on the American model.

A PARTY of mining , engineers from

trip yesterday by special car over
the Western Parific to Doyle. They

erties In the northeastern section of

The board of inquiry that was as

the responsibility for the explosion of
the locomotive boiler at Stanwix sta
tion, Arizona, on April 9, when engine
2739, hauling an eastbound extra, blew
up, killed the engineer and injured the
fireman, has held that the explosion
was due to negligence.
The board of inquiry comprised R. G.
Hlllman and J. .1. Malone, inspectors
for the Hartford Boiler Insurance com
pany; P. Sheedy, superintendent of mo
tivf power; J. 11. Dyer, division super
intendent; G. A. Relchert, boiler in

H. J. Small, general superintendent of
motive power. The latter, however,

AH of the parts of the locomotive
were assembled and thoroughly ex
amined and it was found by the board
that the water in the boiler had been
too low, which caused the crown aheot
to drop, the explosion being the result.
The locomotive was in good condition
when it started on the run, and had
the water in the boiler been sufficient
not to allow the crown sheet to become
overheated the explosion would not
have occurred. The report of the board
of inquiry was unanimous.

Just One Smile for
12 Long Blocks
"Will you tell me when we get to
Buchanan street?" a passenger asked a
conductor on a Sutter street car yes
terday. He should have known bet
ter than to be so trusting.
"I'll call th' street when we get to
tt." the conductor replied in a tone
that indicated it would be anything
but a pleasure to do it.
The conductor amused himself with
calling out the street names at first;
but that must have grown tiresome
after a while, for he became less in
terested all the time. Next he counted
his transfers, then he shuffled them up
and recounted them.
A young woman stood on the door
sill going through the motions of wish
ing the car would stop. After the car
had flown past several blocks she
voiced a desire to get off. The conduc
tor regarded her a moment and went
right on counting his transfers. When
he had crossed the street he said:
"Did you want off bark there?"
The young woman admitted that she
"Well. 11l see to It that we stop at
the next street."
The next Street was mussed up with
car tracks, and he had to stop there
anyhow; so the young woman watched
her chance and hopped off.
By and by the car took a turn to the
right, off Sutter street. It went up
that street a block or so and then be
gan preparations to make another turn.
The passenger asked if "we" have got
to Buchanan street yet. But the con
ductor was counting some change.
There was nothing to do except wait
until he was at his leisure. Then he
put the question again.
"Yes, we got there," the conductor
replied, a trifle irritated at having his
train of thoughts interrupted.
"How far back is it?"
" 'Bout 13 blocks."
"Do I get a transfer to go back?"
"Oh, why, certainly not; no sir." .He
emiled down on the passenger in a
pitying fashion. The passenger got
off when the car slowed down to make
the curve. The conductor smiled some
more. It might have been a pleasant
smile, but there is some doubts as to
whether it was worth 12 blocks or not.
