Death and Disaster Follow Hoodoo
Ships; Lives Lost—No One Punished
SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 7.—There Is disquiet among ship own
ers and their chamber of commerce allies here over the verdict of
negligence found against First Officer H. W. Ravens of the steamer
President for the loss of four lives, t lin-i- crewsmen and a passenger,
at sea recently.
It Is liable, they fear, to link
itHolf up significantly with evi
dence before congress supporting
the La Toilette seaman's efficiency
bill making human life para
mount over profits.
The President is the llth of
the Pacific Coast Steamship com
rauy's vessels to come under the
"hoodoo" th,at has followed this
fleet within the past few years,
bringing death and disaster.
Coast owners had hoped that
the "hoodoo" explanation might
be ac<_s_.ited and further investiga
tion directed toward lAundane re
sponsibility dropped.
But the passengers who
brought charges against Capt. R
1. Paulsen and Second Officer T.
L. Mathlesen as well as Havens,
would not have it so.
They had witnessed the "lroo
doo" resolve itself into "plain hu
man bungling and gross ineffi
ciency, as far as the President
was concerned.
"Three lives, at least, needless
ly sacrificed," they testified.
And ln the case of Ravens,
whose license they suspended for
18 months, Inspectors Guthrie
and Italian sustained the passen
ger, into hot terms of blame.
The launching of the lifeboats
had been bungled, they said. The
three crew members who lost
their lives ln trying to save Lea
tliain, the passenger, and not

ers. They had been lowered and
spilled into the sea on the weath
er side. The second boat, also
without life preservers, had been

stead of an officer.

course, they averred.
But their blame ranged wider.
It embraced ship owners and
stockholders, satisfied with inef
ficiency because it paid greater
The passengers knew that even
while they testified to the toll of
lnconi|tetency, a group of wealthy
ship owners and members of the
chamber of commerce were pro
testing to congress against the
I/aKollette bill because it "would
hurt trade."
Light punishments for negli
gence and Incompetency, and
their bearing on maritime disas
ters, is also revived by the pres
ent case.
Government records show that
revocation of licenses Is extreme
ly rare In tliree typical years, with
a loss of 81 lives by wrecks, lees
than 10 licenses were recalled.
Even the suspensions are light
