SAILORS ALL SAW STEAMER
Dectnre Vessel $js Within Three to
Five Miles of Titanic When Liner
Hit Iceberg Captain's Messenger
Tells of Mysterious Note Carried to
Chief Engineer Soon After Col
lision Captain of Mount Temple
Journeyo to Washington.
Washington, April 20. Detter ro
leults were obtained by tho senate
committee Investigating the Titanic
wreck when the task of examining
witnesses was divided among the
different members, each of whom
acted separately and Individually.
Among other things, It was es
tablished that the Titanic was main
taining a speed of about 221 miles
an hour when tho collision occurred.
Quartermaster Itowe, who was among
tho last to leave tho sinking ship,
swore before 6no of tho senators
that ho read the ship's log just bo
fore leaving tho vessel and that It
registered 200 knots, Indicating Its
run from noon of Sunday until tho
time the accident occurred. He also
declared that tho Iceberg scraped tho
entire starboard side of the Titanic,
and that from his position on the
bridge on tho stern of tho boat ho
was apprehensive lest the bridge it
Bolt ho torn away by tho berg.
All tho able-bodied seamen stew
ards and stokers who were examined
testified with startling unanimity to
having seen tho light of another ship
within from three to five miles of
tho Titanic. It was Imposslblo to
shako them In this belief, and sev
eral declared that they could not
only sec tho lights of the ship, but
also her motion as she rodo tho
waves. This testimony Is corrobora
tive of that given by Officer Doxhall,
who told of having seen the mast
light and sldo lights of a vessel,
which ho estimated to bo five miles
away, and which he signalled for an
hour from tho bridge of tho Titanic,
Captain Smith's messenger was
one of the witnesses examined- In
this way. He told of a mysterious
note that he carried from Captain
Smith to tho chief engineer of the
Titanic after the collision, and In
this connection recited the Interest
ing fact that the lights In the
stokers' room were out within, 15
minutes after tho ship struck tho
Iceberg.
While the contents of this note
will never be known, It Is believed
by members of tho committee and
others that it contained an order
from the captain to the chief engi
neer to start the pumps. The In
quiry thus far has developed no tes
timony that would Indicate that tho
pumps of the Titanic ever were
started.
Members Draw Conclusions.
Tho member of the committee to
whom this messenger told the story
believes that the darkness In the
stokers' room within so short a time
after the collision Indicates that
water had reached tho electric wiring
In this room and destroyed Its use
fulness. William Marconi, head of the wire
less company bearing his name, and
Harold C. Cottam, the wireless oper
ator on board tho Carpathia, were
the only two witnesses examined by
the full committee Wireless mes
sages were Introduced In evidence
showing that officers of the Marconi
company had instructed their wire
less operators on the Carpathia to
hold the details of the disaster for
sale exclusively to a New York news
paper for a sum "In four figures."
One of these messages was signed
"Marconi," but Mr. Marconi denied
nil knowledge of them and declared
that he disapproved of them. He
contended that he had been desirous
of obtaining details of tho disaster
at tho earliest possible moment for
general distribution among public
prints.
Two more witnesses, who are ex
pected to givo . Important testimony,
have been subpenaed by Senator
Smith to appear before the commit
tee today. ' They are the captain and
a wireless operator on the steamship
Callfornlan, which Is now In dock at
Doston and which Is scheduled to
Ball Saturday. They have been or
dered to pioduco the log of the Call
fornlan. Captain .1. P. Moore of the Cana
dian Paclllo railroad's steamship
Mount Temple is also expected. Ho
loo will testify before tho, committee
with reference to a report that his
tlhlp passed within sight of tho Ti
tanic, saw her distress signals and
ttiiled to respond. Captain Moore
prefers to appear In person before
Hie commlttoo rather than givo his
testimony to a Canadian commission.
His ship Is now In port at Si. Johns,
rt. I!., mid Is scheduled to sail to
Sight. '

IT OF PEOPL
Golonel Roosevelt Continues
Attack on President, '
SPEAKS BEFORE LARGE CROWD
Charges That Former Friend Has
Been Guilty of "Grossest and Most
Actoundlng Hypocrisy" and That
Misdating of Documents In Ballln
ger Case Would Have Resulted In
Clash With Authorities If Practiced
In Bank.
Worcester, Mass., April 27. Reply
ing o President Taft's broadside
against him, Colonel Roosevelt de
clared the president guilty of tho
"grossest and most astounding hypoc
risy" In declaring that he had
never been disloyal to Roosevelt,
gave the lie to the president several
times, assorting at one time that tho
president Is "guilty of a crooked
deal," at another that the president's
conduct In opening up tho harvester
trust corespondenco "obviously" to
Influence the Massachusetts pri
maries," represents the very crook
edest kind of a crooked deal, and de
clared that the action of the adminis
tration In not appealing the circuit
court order In tho tobacco case to
supreme court was "incompatible
with the theory that the administra
tion was acting In good faith."
Asserting that "Mr. Taft Is presi
dent only because I kept my promise
In spite of infinite pressure to break
It," and relating that President Taft
wrote after he became president, "I
can never forget that tho power 1
now exercise was voluntarily trans
ferred from you to me," the colonel
shouted to his hearers:
"It Is a bad trait to bite the hand
that feeds you." He had been de
fending his Interpretation of hla
promise not to accept a third term
having referred to a "consecutive"
term, Insisting that if he had raised
his little finger In 1908 he could had
the nomination, but steadily refused
It, for Mr. Taft.
Hints at Prosecution.
Colonel Roosevelt declared that tha
president In the Balllnger-Plnchot af
fair, especially In conneclon with
"that part of It In connection with
which Important documents wora
misdated, was guilty of conduct
which, If he had been the head of a
bank, would have gotten him Into
serious trouble with the bank exam
iner and possibly even with the dis
trict attorney,"
Summing up his attltudo of opposi
tion to the president, the colonel
snapped out these sentences:
"I do not believe he has given tho
people a square deal. I bolievo ho
has yielded to bosses and to the
great privileged Interests. I think he
has done this through feebleness,
not through vlclousness. I nm sin
cerely sorry for him and only regret
that he did not have the strength ol
character to-make good his promises
to tho American people.
"If ho had really represented the j
interests of tho plnln people or tho
United States I should have support-1
cd him heart and soul. I am ngutnni
him only because I have been forced
to believe that ho does not and can
not represent tho vital needs of tho
average man mid the average1 woman."
