Stories Agree in Reporting Rapidity
oi Sinking? No ;Sign of Submarine
London, Jan. 3.?The Peninsular & I
Oriental Steamship company has received
a dispatch from Malta saying
that 11 more survivors of the steamer
Persia have been landed, including
Lord Montagu. This makes a total of
169 survivors landed.
Robert X. McXrely, the American j
consul at Aden, was not among the |
survivors at Malta.

Xo further word has been received
concerning Robert H. McXee>r7, Amer- I
ican consul at Aden, Arabia, and there
seems to be little doubt that he was
drowned. The safety of Charles Grant >
of Boston having been established, it j
is thought Mr. McXeeley is the only'
American who perished.
It still is impossible to give even i
with approximate accuracy the loss of
life, as the number of persons on board
has not been established. The passengers
numbered something more
than 200 and there were between 200
and 300 members of the crew, so that
apparenly the death list will run largely
in excess of 200.
Such fragmentary accounts of the

SOT PERSONALLY LIABLE
FOR FUNDS OF SEMINOLE CO.
Supreme Court Exonerated Wilie
Jones, W. A. Clark and T. S.
Bryan From Blame.
' The Record.
I The South Carolina supreme court
: this morning in an opinion written by
j-Associate Justice George W. Gage de!
cided th:.t Wilie Jones, W. A. Clark
! and T. S. Bryan, three prominent business
men of Columbia, are not personally
liable to the stockholders of
the Seminole Securities company for
#30,000 involved in the transaction
! whereby the Seminole bought controllj
ing interest in the Southern Life InI
surance Company of North Carolina.
| They are absolved from all blame by
; the court, which upholds. the decision
of the circuit court.
Associate Justice Fraser filed a dissenting:
opinion in the c^se. j
History >'ot Necessary.
iThe court, in its opinion, says it is
not necessary to write down the history
of the defunct Seminole Securities
company. The action was brought!
by J. S. Klugh, T. J. Crymes, J. L.
Watson and J. F. Dalton against the
Seminole Securities company, John Y.
Garlington, J. S. Young, !W51ie Jones,
W. A .Clark, T. S. Bryan and others.
The court states that the single ques

the defendants 'Clark, Jones and Bryan
personally liable to the stockholders
of the Seminole Securities company
for $30,000 for a breach of trust? The
circuit court found that they were not
and we agree."
The charter for the Seminole Securities
company was granted January 8,
1908. The authorized capital was
$ 300,000. The subscribed capital Was
$270,000. The cash paid in capital was
$97,928.87 or more. iThe trust agree-i
ment was excuted January 31, 1908.
The stock of the Southern Life wras
bought October 3, 1908. Action for a
receiver was begun December 16, 1908,
and a receiver was appointed on the
29th of that Same month. A settlement
with the Southern Life was made on
February 2, 1909, and the settlement
approved by the court on February 16.
'TTIie enterprise, therefore, ran its
whole career within a twelvemonth,"
says the court, continuing, "this action
is seauel thereto."
"The plaintiff stockholders," says the
opinion, "are amongst those who undertook
to hoist this enterprise."
In another paragraph the court uses
"It is true Garlington and his immediate
associates were tfce initiators
of the scheme, but plaintiffs and all;
the stockholders stood by like Saul'
consenting to the death. And they are
those now complaining against Clark
and Jcnes and Bryan because the
Only Held Bag.
"There is no allegation and no evidence
;hat Clark or Jones or Bryanj
held any stock, or took any hand in |
the suggestion or direction of th,j!
Seminole company, or received anyj
compensation thereabout. The only i
contention is they held the bag which'
had been filled by the stockholders. |
Among other things the Seminole com- j
pany was: (1) to act as agent and j
manager for financial corporations and I
insurance companies of all kinds, and J
(2) to buy, sell and own stocks, bonds!
and other securities of other corporations,
both foreign and domestic. That
was to be the chief business of a company
these stockholders go up. It
was to manage the business of other
corporations, which are required by
law to manage their own business.
"As the circuit court found, therej
may have been amongst the stockholders
some persons who had no more
wisdom than to put money into such
an enterprise; but there were many
who were not beguiled.
"The complainants suggest that 'the
real purpose of the appointment of the j
said trustees w?ls to lend tone, stand-1
ing and. credit to the scheme of the j
managing officers of the said defend-j
ant company, and influence the unsuspecting
public to become subscribers
to its stock.
"That is to say, the president and
directors of the Seminole company;
the managing officers; put forward
Clark, Jones and Bryan to mislead th3?
public. But the stockholders put forward
the managing officers as their
representatives, and the scheme of
these managers "was thus made possible
by the stockholders. The stockholders
vouched for Garlington; may
they now say that Clark, Jones and
Bryan could not? If therefore these J
stockholders have been caught, it is j
thpir nwn setting."
U_l a tl U|/ WA. VMV. w . w
j .The court finds that "it is conceded
by the complaint and by the plaintiff's
argument, that so far as the trustees
! are concerned 'this thing was not done
I in a corner'; so that the element of
I bad faith on their part is eliminated
1 from the case."
In another section the court says:
"We are, therefore, of the opinion
that the trustees were not so lacking
j in care about the payment of the fund J
j as to make them personally respon-1
Isible for any loss which may have re
suited from tneir aci.
What the court terms the "most |
complex issue" is "did the trustees
unwarrantably depart from the terms.'
of the trust," and developing the de-!
cision on this point says:
"It is true that the trust was express,
and it is also true the trustees
were bound by the law to conform to
the terms of it, and for a failure to do
so, they are liable to the cestuo quo
i trust in the event of the loss of the
"This equity is distinct from that j
of ordinary care by the trustees, and
from that of good faith by the trustees.
Manifestly, a trust agreement,
I like any contract, may be modified by
all parties in interest.
"The agreement here Is out ?>f the j
ordinary; it is a contrary device; and!
its meaning and the purpose of the;
I Seminole company in its making are
| not manifest.
! "One thing only is apparent, and
t'nat is, the now amazing gullibility of j
, the seasoned and reputable business,
! men who consented to enter into such

SECRETARY OF AGRICULTURE
TAKES GLOOMY VIEW.
Farmers Should Conserve Material at
Home?Rotation of Crops is
Uurged by Houston.
Washington, Jan. 3.?A gloomy view
of prospects for fertilizing next year's
crops is presented in a statefent issued
today by Secretary Houston of
the department of agriculture.
Relief measures undertaken by the
department since the European, war
disrupted the American p'nosphate infinstry
and cut off potash imports
from Germany will help, the statement
says, but they offer slim possibilities
that the American farmer
will vet a small nart of the fertilizing
" * *"* *r " _
materials necessary for his needs.
Nitrogenous fertilizers alone will be
available in the quantities needed. _
The secretary takes up first the potash
supply, long since exhausted in
t'ne United States by the German embargo
on shipments. Investigation,
says his statement, has shown four
sources of supply in this country, but
none immediately available. Those are
the kelp of the Pacific coast, alunite
deDosits in Utah, feldspathic rocks in
rhe East and the mud of Searles lake*
Manufacture from feldspar has
been found to be feasible, but the cost
is high. Developments of Searles lake
deposits presents technical difficulties
and title to the property is involved.
Manufacturers are experimenting now,
the statement says, with alunite. Kelp
is offered as the best material. Three
large coDcerns have .begun manufac
ture from kelp and government exx?ei
is will be sent to the Pacific coast
to aid in the experimental work. J
Production wil1 be slow for a long
time .the secretary points out, and
demand for pocash in other industries
is so great tha tnone manufactured in
n the United States will he available
soon fcr agricultural purposes, nis
' "Tne prices offered under existing
conditions by the manufacturers of
articles will cause practically the entire
output of these concerns to be
diverted from the fertilizer industry.
It would require 90 or more plants,
costing approximately $50,000 and having
an operating capital of $25,000
each, to produce the quantity needed
for agriculture. This would involve
the assumption that commercial
phases of tne proDiem were sausiav;torily
solved. The department is considering
all phases of the situation/"
The crippled state of the phosphate
industry is attributed to the high price
of sulphuric acid, much of which is
being used now in- the manufacture of
war munitions. The price has jumped
1 from $5 to $25 a ton. Demand for the
acid is so heavy that abandoned plants
are being refitted for its manufacture.

phosphoric acid as a substitute for
Nitrate prices have advanced since
the war began, but there is an abundant
supply of nitrogenous fertilizing
material, and t'ne department is endeavoring
to find methods to cheapen
the cost of manufacture. The secretary
concludes with a warning to farmers
to conserve all fertilizing materials
on the farm. He urges crop rotation,
proper use of fertilizers and also use
of lime to increase productivity of the
soil. ' ,

Steamer Glengyle Sent Down With
Loss of Life.
London, Jan. 3.?The British steamship
Glengyle has been sunk. The
