Chief Steward Quiets Refugees
on Endangered Ship.
Lights Pipe With Steady Hand and
Tells Passengers There Is No
Danger-Riot Would Have
This is a story of a white lie, which
was told in the White sea. It was tol
b;y the chief steward of a White Star
liner, says the Montr'al Star.
Du)ring: the evineuntlin of the Mlur
mansk coast, when te1s of thousands
of refugees and troops were ibting
taken away trotin north ltussiat to
escape the bolshevik tiring silads, one
of the liner's, a nen: While St a' vessel,
was blown onto a reef close ilshore
with a thousati troops anid 1,500 refu
gees on board. It happened at eleven
o'clock at night, anal until -4 n. in. the
ship pounded on the reef, tearing her
bottomn plates to pieces, also mlaking
Considerable water in all her holds.
Ther captain held a final consulta
tion in his cain, hinself, the. chief en
gineer, purser, chief steward and other
department hends being present. The
captain stated coldly that in his own
opinion when the ship got off the reef,
with the rising tide, she would take
water In so quickly that it would sim
ply be n nose dive into deep water.
The chief steward then reported
that every man, womtan and child on
the ship wore a life belt, even the ha
bles. The soldiers were also etuilpped,
lie also stated that he hail the pas
sengers fairely well in hand. "Well,"
said the captain, "we may as well
nake preparations for the worst.
"7f she takes water the way I think
she will, it will simply be a case of
eve'y man for himself."
The conference was over and the
chief steward left the captain's cabin
aind stood at the top of the stairs
nhove the upper deck. Two thousand
-pairs of eyes were peering tip at him
to read the "itte of the ship and them
selves. Chief Stewnrd Rlobinson did
not wilt. lie took out his pipe and lit
it with a steady hand, then turning
to the ioinling crowd below, that need
ed only a word to turn it into a seeth
ing suob, he-said:
"There is no danger at all. You can
all go to bed." They went. and the
ship slid off but (11(1 not sink. She
was a new vessel and her patent
double bottom had saved her. Later
on she was forced to (lock at Cro
marty, a naval base in the north of
Scotland, and this was safely man
aged. All the lassengers, mostly may
ors of Russian towns and their die
pendentt, were landed without tils
-hap. f1nd a riot occurred on hoard
bthlp the ship's stig' could never have
handled her in the skill fu way which
prevent'd her from leaving half her
hottoin on the reef. Cilet' Steward
ltlobinson, with his pipe in hand, had
told the biggest lie in his life, hut it
was a white-one and did the trick.
lie slated atrwiard thmi tih' reason
his hand did not shaike was for two
and a hail' years he ha:l slept aboard

1821-Governor of the territory
A NDWtW JACKSON, the iimlet
tered backwoodsman, treading at
the heels of John Quincy Adams, the
muost cultured in all the line, presents
th# sharpest contrast to be seen in
the procession of presidents.
The first president born in a log
cabin, Jackson could not claim as his
own even that lowly dwelling in the
North Carolina forest, but entered the
world homeless and fatherless. Sprung
from poor Irish iniigrants, his par
ents had been In the country only two
years when the father sank into an
unmiarked grave a few days before
Andrew's birth, leaving his family
without a roof or an acre.
No other among American leaders
received from the War of Independence
such a legacy of bitter inemories as it
bequeathed to Jackson. That savage
struggle between Whig and Tory
swept away his brave mother and
both of his brothers; seattered his kin
dred and left him, at fifteen, alone in
A ragged, roving wilf of the Revo
