Halifax, May 2. The last of the
Identified Cead recovered from the lost
Titanic probably will leave Halifax to
day, and tomorrow those bodies that
remain' will be buried in cemeteries
overlooking the sea. Some seventy or
Ighty burials will be made tomorrow.
Electrician Ross of the Mackay-

John Snow, Jr., who was the only
undertaker on the cable ship, that
many of the bodies buried at sea were
as recognizable and well-preserved as
any of those now lying identified at
He declares that it became neces
sary to dispose of some bodies when
the Mackay-Bennett became over
crowded and that while the mutilated
were the first to be dropped over
board, many others had to go who
could not be identified on board, but
whose friends might easily recognize
them on shore.
TITA7IIO ICEBERG SIGHTED.
The crew of the Mackay-Bennett
saw the giant iceberg that wrecked
the liner Titanic while cruising for
the bodies which It landed here yes
terday. They say the berg was very
long, with perpendicular edges, not
more, than 50 feet out of the water
at any point, and that there was a
hole in its side wide enough almost
for the cable Bhlp to fit inside.

New York, May 2. Th agreement

The proposed agreement provides for

the union and other concessions to
the miners, but makes no mention, of
a shorter working day.

FATHER, LIFE PRISONER,
MEETS CONDEMNED SON
Gary, Ind., May 2. Nelson Fritts
and his son, John, both murderers,
the father a life convict and the son
sentenced to be hanged in June, met
in the office of Warden E. J. Fogerty
at the state prison yesterday. Both
men were overcome by emotion. The
elder Fritts has been in prison since
1900. He was sent from Lawrence
county for killing a neighbor. The
son was 8 years old at the time, and
when he was 17 committed a theft
that resulted in his being placed in
the reformatory at 'Jeffersonville
Last year he killed a guard and for
this he was sentenced to death. For
a few minutes the elder Fritts would
not believe the man before him was
the little boy he had left back at
Minneapolis, Minn., May 2. Criti
cism of a condition which enabled the
church to gain "less than two per
cent of its membership in the last
year," and charges that the church
press is being used "as a free forum
by promoters of disaffection," were
made in the bishops' report to the
quadrennial general conference of the
Methodist Episcopal church today.
The report, known as the "Episcopal
address," Is regarded as the most Im
portant document to come before the
conference. It was read by Bishop
SHAMES AND HI MII.IATES.
"In the last year," said the report,
"the church has made a net gain o!
but 55,000, which Is less than two
per cent, as the outcome of a year's
activities and the outlay of many mil
lions of dollars. The statistical para
dox glares us out of countenance. It
shames and humiliates us. What are
the honors of office worth In any
army that does not win battles?"
LAW TOO STniCT.
Some reasons for meager growth
were laid to a too strict application
of a law of the church demanding alk.
members who remove from a given
community without their church let-
l ters to be dropped from membership
after one year.
"A fair calculation based upon the
number of probationers received."
the report said, "reveals the astound
ing fact that probably not less than
a half million members disappeared
from our rolls by a reckless use of
the dropping process.
DOCTItlXES NOT EMPHASIZED.
"Nevertheless we still face the fact
that our distinctive doctrines are not
being emphasized as they once were,
or where preached are discredited for
the time by a gainsaying world drunk
with vain philosophies and satiated
with gluttinous indulgence."
Pleading for emphasis on distinct
ive Wesleyan doctrines, the bishops'
report said that they were the only
power to save the nation against vice.
'Where Is evidence that science
ever regenerated one soul or culture
redeemed one libertine?" said the re
The address condemned a practice
that was said to have grown up In
certain churches of calling In evan
gelists to carry on revival services as
against a former custom which placed
the local pastor in charge of that
