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
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.

Teutnnla Trust of e Orleans lie

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
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
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.

The Colonel feels encouraged to think
that he may be able to win away from Mr.

will mako a stumping tour through that

that an anti-machine Senator will prob

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. Many
of them admitted to-day that the fight
