FRANKLIN BLOCKED
PLAN OF ISMAY FOR
FLIGHT ON THE CEDRIC
White Star Vice
Stand in Senate Inquiry Makes
Public His Wireless Refus
ing to Hold the Cedric.
"DIDN'T INTEND TO SPIRIT
CREW AWAY," HE SAYS.
"We Based Our First Hopeful Bulle- N
tins on Rumors," He Explains; "Got
News of Sinking at 6 20 P. M.'
WASHINGTON, April 22. The wireless messages from J. Bruce
Ismay which were intercepted by the United States Government and
caused the Senate Committee to hurry to New York and be?in its in
quiry into the Titanic disaster, were placed in evidence to-day when the
investigation was resumed. These messages were put before the Com
mlttee by P. A. S. Franklin, Vice-President of (lie International Mercantile'
Marine, the first witness called to-day:
Ismay had Called upon Hranklin to detain the Vdric scheduled to
sail Thursday until Ismay arrived on the Carpathia, so lie and the
Titanic's crew could return in her. Mr. r-ianklin made public his despatch
declining to hold the GftlrlC an. I Mid, .is every one knew, lje had jailed
at n um Thursday.
Mr. Franklin denied thai Ihe White Mar company had Ml) IliterUiOfl
to spirit away from the country any Titanic otlicers or crew, or that the
plans to return Ihe survivors of the crew were prompted by any desire
to suppress the lads. He said that nothing that tlie otlicers oy crew could
tell could effect w hat might be told by suiviving passengers.
All during the hearing the committee room was in confusion. The
hubbub was so great that Chairman Smith said even members of the
Committee could not hear portions of the teslinuniv.
. Scores of society women near!) fought with deputies to luld advan
tageous seats and many brought lunches, rel using to leave their places.
When the doors were reopened after the rtcea Committee officials almost
had to light to prevent the Committee members' chain being appropriated.
Women mobbed J. Bruce Nnay in the committee room when he
entered and left. They rushed in a hummi maelstrom about Ismav,
crushing and pushing him and themselves.
ASKS ABOUT FALSE REPORTS.
Senator Smith, who questioned the witnesses hre, as he did in
New York, ittempte I to get an expl.in-i'ion of the false reports sent out
last Monday that .ill the Titanic's pasepr had been taved. He asked
Mr. Hranklin whether he or any other White Star official had sent the
reaaauring telegram to Hepresentaiive Hughes of Weal Virginia that the
Titanic was pr iceedini to Halifax and "all were saved" on Monday afftr-
noon at i time houri after fifteen hundred lives had been swallowed up
in the icy water- off ( 'ape Race. Mr. Hranklin declared they had not.
"We have .1 big l"t of employees In our oilicv" he added "It
might have been that lome one of the funiori who were anwering tele
phones might have niven out th.it Information. Bui certainly mm of ihe
officers did. It Is possible thai such a telegram was sent from our ottice,
bul i did nol know anything tboul it. It was unauthorised."
ADMITS REPORTS HAD NO BASIS.
Mr. Franklin insisted thai he did not hear the Titanic had sunk until
Monday evening, hut he admitted there was no authority, save uncoiv
tinned rumors, for any ol the reassuring itatements given out Monday
morning and afternoon.
The witness rend from I great heaf of wireless telegrams received
Monday m rnlng. None of them contained any information of value,
tut it Vai upon this data that the line Issued its statement in an ef
fort to reassure Inquirer! When the news of the sinking came, he
s. id, he lenl Immediately for the reporters and proceeded to begin
reading to them 'he Marconigram from Ihe Carpathia giving the
new in considerable deuil.
"I began to read," Mid Mr. Hranklin, " 'Titanic went down this morn
in it 2.20 A. M.1 and then I looked up. There was nut a reporter in the
room, They were all racing lor 'phone-, to get the news out to the
world."
