CARMAXfA GOT TUB WORD She Also Wns Afoul of the Ice Fields nnd Saw '25 Hei'gs at Once. The French liner Niagara, hound for this port from Havre with about 100 cabin and more than BOO steerage passengers, was for an hour in peril off tho Banks on Thursday afternoon tho sea (lowing into her through two holes stove in her hull by Ice floes, through which she had lieen picking her way for several hours. Shn got hare safely latn last night and will dock to-day. Tho Cunarder Car- mania, In yesterday from Liverpool nnd Queenptown, brought word of the French ship's temporary distress. Capt. Dow of the Carmanlu found the Atlantic lane unexpectedly frosted when he looked from the bridge, seventy feet above the scu, on Thursday morning and descried dimly on his Marboard bow half a doten stumpy but long icebergs. He changed his course to the southward, but he had already become enmeshed In an extended field of Ice. which to starboard and tlcad ahead reached beyond the vision nud to port for miles At noon the p:isengers came from their luncheon to take in the unuual Arctic nect and look at the bergs. One that looked like a floating table mountain formed of solid green ice, Inspired the snapshot tor to get out their cameras. Some of the passenger were frightened by the crunch ing of the ico under the bow und tho scrtping of floe alongside the ship, but the otlleen said that three wastio danger. The wirtlesH operator startled Capt. Dow about 12:10 P. M. by bringing him a wireless from tho Niagara, which was out of flight on tho starboard quarter of the Cunarder, saying that the French' man had two hole punched in her below the water line and would the tarmania stand by her as she was in imminent peril. Capt. Dow thought a little over this urgent request and, partly with the idea of getting out of the Ice field and partly to so immediately to the help of the Niagara, he turned his ship around and steered northeastward. In about an hour-another message came frrmi - the Ugara. saying that she could take care of herself, 'apt Dow Inferred that the holes wero not so big as the French skipper had at first surmised and that he had stopped tho leaks. Another mos sage sold a hteamhip was standing by the Niagara. The Carmanla then turned nnd stood on her cours-.. again. Sho found the ice much further sotitn than usual at this season and her ice log says that f-ho stopednt l.Xi o'clock, pass ing through field ice, and proceeded dead slow The whistle was sounded, fog having set in, nnd all the usual precau tions were taken. Thereafter until 3:10 o'clock the fog was intermittent. Then the sun burst through the vapor and the ship went full speed. A dense fog wiped our everything afloat and the siren began to complain again, the ship stopping for a time and then going dead slow. The nir was very cold and the near ness of bergs wan apparent. The sound of the ice against the ship's sides made the timid shiver as much as for the cold. Every now and then the 'growlers" which may be floes crunching against larger floes of bergs or great hunks of Ice breaking from the sides of bergs and plunging growllngly into the aea startled the watchers and listeners on the Car mania's decks. l'lii) fog veil would lilt occasionally and reveal groups of bergs to the north of the rhlp. One of these was low lying and long, and when (apt. Dow got his first glimpse of it faintly in outline ho thought that it wa another ship. Within three hours the passengers sighted twenty-fivo bergs, tho grcatet number ever seen from a liner, the nearest of which was not mora than a quarter mile away There was no breeze worth recording while the Carmanla steamed thr ugh the Ice, but there was a mighty swell und the noes, most of which were larger than a lifeboat, rota and fell as If endowed with life. It was supposed that a -growler' from one of the bergs may have smashed against the side of the Niagara and given her thn wounds that made her Hltlper fearful that she might not get through her trouble without help The passengers united in declaring that the vision of the colony of Lergs when the sun came out and broke hi lancen on their hhlmmering masses was better than a moving picture show or tho hlghuut class. There was not a moving picture man aboard to tako advantage of the occasion. Capt. Dow will not promise to let his next lot of voyagers go "seeing the iceberg. Some passenger i said the situation when the fog was ju t thick enough to reveal indistinctly the menacing loo mountains was uncanny. 1 he plaint of the siren and tho grinding of the floes on the reverberating ateel sides of the ship gave them the creeps. The skipper said that at one time from hit seventy foot perch he could see nothing but ice In every direction, and ho was mighty glad to get clear of it. He saw at one time a full rigged ship and a fishing schooner courtesying in the ice crowned swells, i he tank steamship Excelsior, in from Hamburg, passed on Wednesday an ice Held fifteen miles, long In which there waa a bark which displayed no signals. Several fteamshlps recently arriving at this port and Boston have reported en countering Ice a llttlo further north than tho place whore the Carmania discovered tho herd or bergs. The Niagara is a twin screw of about n knots Hh rLrinr Lit ,n Ii... , 11 knots. Sho curries only one class of cabin iwHsengers (second) and has nceom- modatlon for about 1,000 steerage ruuisen. ger.

Nkw Oiii,i:anh, April II, A shortage of lietween 30U,)00 and ItUO.OOU has been uncovered in the Teutonia Hunk and Trust Company, 027 Charles street, by State Bank Examiner W. I.. Voung. The Institution hod a capital or t2(,oni) and surplus of 170,000, according to Its report. F.ugeno V. Beuhlcr, president; Joseph A. (lomila, chairman of the finance com mittee, and Frank J Brutid, former as sistant cashier, are held In the parish prison, the first two under charges of concealing the true condition of the bank from the State authorities nnd the last on chargeN or embezzlements totalling WO.OOO. Statu Bank F.xnmlncr Young began an investigation of the bank's books some limn ago. He issued a statement to night in which he said he had discovered conditions which demanded assistance from some outsldn souroe nnd had railed in the New Orleans Clearing House Asso ciation. The clearing house held a meet ing at 0 o'clock to-night, viewed ft con Holidated presentation of tho bank's status and bttsued a statement in which It was announced that, tho situation was such that tho association could not Intervene and the Stato would have to take charge. Mr. Young will tako charge of the bank Monday morning. Huinorsaysthat dead accounts of firms long out of business have been carried and that directors have been beneficiaries of large loans, employed in business venture. Brnud, the former assistant cashier, has been out of the bank eighteen months This would indicate that the alleged de falcations have been going on for a long time. Other directors have been sent for to confer with the District Attorney nnd it is probable more arrests will be made before morning. Valuable records have been destroyed, according to the State officials, and it ia imKnuilile to more than estimate the shortage. It 1 known, however, that it exceeds capital and surplus, and probably by I100.0OO. The bank paid I tier cent, on savings dosits. 10 Frank J. Braud to-nlp,ht confessed that he took $72,000 from the Teutonia, covering up tho shortage a he went along, and gave the money to Clark Steen. Hteen was secretary of the Dock Board. Some months ago he rented a skiff at West End, rowed out into Lake Pont Chartrain and jumped overboard. He was drowned. No one ever wa able to suggest a motivo for the suicide. GUARD OVER CONVENTION.

Wasiiixoto.v, April II. The over whelming victory of Roosevelt in Penn sylvania has brought the Taft candidacy for renomination to a crisis. Although Mr. Taft still ha a lead of at least 15I in the number of delegat3 elected, a situation has been cre.it i whore it is absolutely vital to his political fortunes that the strength of the Southern delegations bo held Intact. Col. Roosovelt appreciates this situa tion and is preparing to movo aaimt Tnft in the South. Roosevelt is going to mako a personal tour in the Southern State.. Nows of this plan of campaign was tho nost important dovelopmiris of to-day following the startling result in Pennsylvania. Tho Tnft peoplo are koenly alive to thn seriousness of the situation th.it is con fronting them, und after extended con ference." to-day tho decision was readied to enter immediately upon an aggresslvo campaign In Massachusetts, New Hamp shire, Nebraska and other State which ara to select delegates in the near future. Till decision on tho part of thu Taft management was reflected in u state ment issued to-night by Director McKinley of the Taft bureau in which ho openly accuses Roosevelt of having undertaken a nationwide campaign or wilful and malicious misrepresentation, vilification nnd unbuilt upon tho Presidont of tho United Stilte. McKlnley reiterates that tho President I in thn fight to thn (inlhnnd that he will not I Men to any suggestion of corr,-promit-e. Hn adds an emphatic predic tion that tho President will win by more than 200 vote in tho Chicago convention. Ho saya that President Taft needs only lTOmorodolegntes to Insure his ronom tui tion and that ho is already assured of 333 more delegates of tho J.20 still tobeelentf J. The seriousness with whicn thn Taft peoplo accepted the result in Pennsyl vania and their plans for increased activ ity do not comport with the cocksure atti tude nssumed by Mr. McKlnley in hi public statement. Tho Taft bureau to-night el il.no I twenty-one of the sixty-four district delegates elected In Pennsylvania yov.w day, but unbiassed reports from Ponuyl vania failed to sustain then figures. Whllo the Taft managers maintained a strong show of confidence in their pub- lio utterances, it is apparent that the 1 President's friends and supporters are greatly disturbed over thn unexpected turn of affairs in Pennsylvania.
