whelmed the wooden tug AnthraciU
which vanished In a twinkling In slxty
feet of water carrying to death her en
glneor Edward Garvan and her cool
Edward Hollenbeck
Capt George Glbbs of the Anthraoil
net his whistle shrieking by tying the
cord and In tho mighty brief Intora
before the keel of the tug rested on the
bottom of the river at least I dozen stm
craft were heading for the scene of tbo
mishap The Marylands skipper Cap
George Tunnard slowed down for a
moment and then went on as he saw tht
his big and unhandy sldewhesler could
not render help as quickly a the prc
pellors that were rushing from all plnt
of the compass to the smitten tug
The Maryland had stopped to let a tow
pass athwart her bow within 100 yar
of Pier A The tow had obscured tbe
little tug which was heading in to the pie
and when the deeply laden transpo
started up again with tide and the re
Bistloss weight of the train impelling h <
on her course i was impossible for her
skipper to halt her She smashed Into
the starboard quarter of the Anthraclb
starbar quarI
ming a gap through which the North
liver and the bay mingling rushed Th
ug wontdown in a cloud of steam create
by the flood that put her engine and bier
out of commission
Aboard the Anthracite were seven ton
Including the secretary of the compan
owning the tug Robert W Morrell who
bad ordered her to make a landing at Phr
A Sho had just como out of dry dok
at Communipaw and was in fine trirr
Mr Morrell wan in the pilot house wit

sought the river bed like a plummet or

1 teX The engineer was waiting for a
house Ha doubt
signal from the pilot hous
less knew from the great jar of the col
listen that something serious had befallei
the Anthracite
VjHe received no signal but he heard th
shrpk of the tugs whistle and he startoi
for Jm deck His fireman August Peter
sen bad preceded him Poteraen sYI
he found uirrwlf at the base of tbe venH
later going from the engine room to the
deck The flood helped him through thi
opening Ho declares that ho was lt
only Mot out of the ventilator by the
force of the flood below him into the all
just as the tug vanished He saw thi
engineer lilt the ceiling of the engine room
Deckhands John Belby and Bwar
Roach found themselves adrift with tin
Ic box which was abaft the after house
before the tug Rank They wore whlrlet
In the eddy created by the sinking of the
Anthracite until they were full of sail
water Then a rescuing tug came along
lido and they were fished out
The rook was in tho galley aft when
the flood ramo sealing the door wIde
opened outward He broke the gins of
I vrlndnw too Into to emerge while the
lug was still above water Among jbc

gave them cop uniforms to take the place
or their own soaked clothing
The first Impression of the police was
t hatT everybody on the Anthracite had

jailed for nil available ambulances down

U One had been sammonod to attend
toa pedler Abraham Baler of CO Market

lid not want t go to the hospital but to

be found that Abraham was more hurt
In his feelings than otherwise and that
he wanted to get a free ride hustled him
tut of the ambulance at Pier A and prof
ored hospital aid to the sunIvors ol
he Anthracite The pedler was pho
ograpbed by an enthusiast as one of the
Peterson who was scolded and Roach
nd 8 lby who were suffering from sub

The board of directors of Ihe Nation
Association of Theatrical Producing Mn
Ogers has expelled Harrison Grey FJke
from the association after an invostig
lon charges made by Henry W Sv
age and based upon Mr Flskefl produ
tlon of The Devil
Tho directors held several hearings and
considered written evidence flied by both
Mr Sayace and Mr Fiske They met
yesterday afternoon for final doliben
tion and neither Mr Savage nor lr
Fiske was admitted The directors pr
out were Charles H Yale who preside
Joseph Brooks Samuel H Scribne
Benjamin fleecier William A Brady
Henry B Harris Henry Martell Jule
Murry Daniel Frohman and John Dim
mel en Mr Yale did not vote The
final vote to expel Mr Fiske was 5 to 1
David Belasco Benjamin feeder ad
Charles Cook had sent in their resignt
ttonu to the secretory of the oasociatic
after hearing the deision
The charges mado by Mr Savage wen
I That Mr FInke has secured and Is foil
Inc upon the American public an unautbo
Ied versIon of Tho Devil
That Mr Fiske produced a play or
which ho had full knowledge that I had
the prior and sole rights
3 That In connection with thrt pro
d 1 FLkeae made fale tltement
and deceived mo when I approached him
lone member this auocUtlon to anothe
4 That Jr FIsKo has made eUtcmcm
unwarranted by the facts In order to preji
dice the publln and Injure my buslnei
reputation and the value ot my authorize
production and also the value of The Merry
WidowThat Mr Flake has by bin not not on
occasioned another member of the aju
clstjon considerable financial loss and ei
tailed upon him considerable and tmnecei
lan expense hit has encouraged piracy
and the unauthorised productIon of pla
In America
The directors found that by reosc
of there being no copyright treaty with
Hungary at the time the play was con
tracted for or produced legal rights were
tacte prouc
not Involved and therefore charge Iand
2 could not be sustained
The directors found further that be
cause the legal rights were not involve
statements made In regard thereto or ei
pendltures connected therewith culd
not be sustained and oonsequentlycharee
4 and I were dismissed
Tho third charge that Air Fiske had
made false statements and had deceive
Mr Savage when Mr Savage approache
Mi Flskeas pno member of tho ossooia
lon to another was sustained and Mi
Fiko was found guilty of conduct not
becoming a member of the assoolatlo
toward another member Thereupon
Fiske was expelled from the association
Mr FUke sent out a long statement las
night declaring that he felt that tho de
ctslon Man entire vindication of bl
position as the board was unable to fnd
aim guilty of a single essential charge
He said that one of the members of tha
board had never heard any of the evldenc
which was submitted but that the mem
bero present yesterday wero ready and
Killing to do the bidding of the true
ind were closely associated with Mr
wee the president founder anc
manipulator tho association and trust
I was found guilty not on any of the
cliarges dealing with the production ol
The Devil said Mr Fiske but for not
telling Mr Savage my plans or my busi
ne arrangements
Te verdict was absurd tIme board it
self Incompetent and prejudiced was
Mr Flukes final ehqt at the members or
Iho board
Mr Savage aiM had something to nay
Although 1 am president of tho Pro
luting Managers Association einde 1
im also tho complainant of this case
I remained away from the directors
room while the SavngeFisko matter WA
under discussion hesald I am how
ever credibly informed as to what took
mince The vote regarding Mr Fiskei
gui on the charge of having made false
itatements to a fellow member of the
iseociation was unanimous by a board
or directors comprising nonsyndicate
al well as syndicate managers even
ncludtng Mr Belasoos personal repro
entatlvc who attended all the directors
nestings In this case The vote could
tot have been otherwise but unanimous
slnceMr Fiske in his own testimony
idmltted that he had deliberately made
lala statements He also admitted that
his course of conduct was advised and
urge by Mr Belasco
In view of these facts Mr Belascoc
tetement that if Mr Fiske U guilty then
he himself is Is a delightfully frank
