he pave this command because of the
impossibility of lowering the boots
safely at the speed at which the Lusi
tania was then proceeding.
"I saw only two lifeboats launched
from this side." reads the statement. '
"The first, for the most part filled with
women, fell sixty or seventy feet into
the water, all the occupants being
drowned. This was because the crew
eeuld not work the davits and fall?
properly, so let them slip from their
hands and sent the lifeboats to de- ;
"After ten minutes of unsuccessful
efforts to lower the boats they decided i
to obtain lifebelts, but could find none
in the cabins. Returning to the boat
deck again they tilled a lifehont with
women and children and then jumped
in themselves. This was successfully
lowered till within twelve feet l'rom
the water, when the man at the bow ?
davit lost his nerve and let go the :
rope, antl mi ?t of the occupants wen
thrown into the water.
"The Lusitunia was now not far from
sinking. My father threw off his over?
coat and worked like a slave trying to
loose the falls from the boat. Th i -,
however, was impossible. B deck was
level with the water, and looking up,
he saw that the Lusitania was very '
near its end; likely to come over on us
and pin us underneath.
"He shouted to me to jump, which I
did. We both were swimming together
in the water a few yards from ?the ship
when something separated us. That
was the last I saw of him."

Trir from East Side to
Tenafly Fills Fifty
with Glee.
Muddled Houses, Huddled Trees,
Dark Streets. Sunny Fields?
Other Fresh Airs Wait.
Fifty small girl? burst into Happy
Land yesterday afternoon.
They found it a great contrast in
?ieed to the part of the world they were
familiar witfc. Most, of the rifty were
born and had lived their few years of
life on the lower East Side a place
??obodv would for a moment think of
?.tvlinsr Happy Land.
Y'iu kno'v the region, kind reader of
this Fresh Air tale. You know it with |
its tenements huddled close the length
of the streets and with others crammed |
in behind where the back yards ought
to be.
You know the streets none too ]
clean with their hordes of humanity
and *nv '.??nK'.es of traffic amid which
children trv t.> nlnv and cannot.
'. on know the houies. with their
r;?rk, -n:!- halla and their tiny, ill
ventilated rooms, the rooms in which
th.'se little voyagers into Hai'PV Land
of vesterdav first saw not light? i
You know the place, or. if vou don't, |
there's no use trying to describe it for
vou. It must be seen to be appreci?
From this place, this hotbed of un
happiness, the fifty fared into Happy
Now. HapDr Land proper is set upon
i a hill over behind the Palisades, at
Tenafly. N. J., but yesterday it reached
out and shook hands with Manhat?
tan Island, so to ?peak, for the tots
and thev were the merest tots be
iran to wax happy immediately they
pot to the ferry at the foot of Cham?
bers Street.
Thev bubbled over with glee at the
?ight of the boats on the river and the
nulls flvinz in circles above it. Thev
wanted to dance with the waves and
laucrh with the sparkle of the sun upon
them. Thev joyed over a hundred
things which the blas? traveller on
terries never turns to observe.
And so all along the route that led
I to Tenafly everything was new, most
things looked as though they might
have been designed to make the world
a happy land. The dingy look of the
world the children knew was changed
for a bright fresh dress of green. So
different was it all that every one of
car window to see.
At Tenafly no tenement? crowd one
another down long narrow streets,
there were no '-ordes of humanity,
there was no clutter of pushcart? and j
trucks. The only things that crowd
there are the trees that shoulder one
another uphill and down dale and the
daisies and other wild flowers that kiss j
one another in the fields. There are no
ill smelling, gloomy hallways and ?mall,
stuffy rooms. Instead the fragrance of
flowers and moist earth spreads over
the vast sunlit spaces.
For two weeks these fifty littlo Trib?
une "Fresh Airs" are to live amid thes?
new wonders. What do you think ? Will
it pay to keep them there? Does your
hard common sense approve this as a
good investment this snatching of
fifty tenement children from a depress?
ing environment and setting them down
for two weeks in Happy Land?
Do you say, "Yes, and I'd like to pay
the expen-'p of keeping one of those
youngsters there." Well you can't do
it. A kind-hearted woman has already
provided for that, and for the expense
of keeping 250 others in the same place
as the summer goes on. But you may
pay the expense of sending a Tribune
"Fresh Air" to some other country
happy land.

Prospect of Chicken Dinner
Makes Stanch Ally of One
Mere Man.
Two suffrage chickens some present
guaranteed them old enough to vote
. enjoyed a suffrage rally last night at
Columbus Circle. These animals, which
were of the feathered species, were
cooped up in a small box. They en?
joyed the show, and when they had
been awarded to William B. Foley, of
357 West Fifty-fifth Street, they seemed
?lad. He won them by giving the
: best reasons why women should have
the vote.
Large numbers of women and a few
men stopped at the meeting long
enough to listen to the suffrage argu?
ments made by Mrs James Lees Laid
law, Mrs. Henrietta L. Lambie and oth?
ers. The gathering was the first of a
' serie? under the Woman Suffrage party
; of the 2.-th Assembly District.
The women declared the meeting had
been a success; so did the Broadway
chickens who had lingered; so did the
two other chickens, and so did Mr.
Coney for German Suffragists.
The German American Committee of
the Woman Suffrage Party will give a
dinner at Feltman'?, Coney Island, June
2?) at .' o'ciock.
The speakers will be Miss Katherine
S, Dreier, chairman o? tho committee;
Mrs. Rosa Bender, chairman of the
Brooklyn sub-committee; Mrs. Eugene
J. Grant and Mrs. Edgar Hanfstaengl.
The price of the dinner is 75 cents, and
i reserv?tion? may be mad? through Miss
, Dreier, 80 West Fortieth Street, or
Mrs. Bender, 92 Gates Avenue, Brooklyn.

letter, "to tell you of the mortificatioi
I feel at the position in which the trus
tees have placed themselves before th?
entire country as s result of their treat

subsequent action when questioned ?
to that treatment.
"Believe me, 'the public be damned
attitude cannot be assumed by any on?
holding a position of publie trust, an?

ministering that tru?t have just re
ceived state aid to the amount of $1,

done to save the pianist's life. Cer?

pear as a result of poisoning, and the
