more danger than the otlp-rs. With a
few vigorous strokes Clino had her along

reacned over the wide. Then he wont
hack to help thn other.
Sailors leaned over the sido and grabbed
the, men and women and children, who
were lifted Into the launch.
Then the launch mailt? for the Vixen.
Hot things to drink and n warm spot
were found for them hy the stownrd
n the Vixen proceeded up the river.
They weie landed nearly dried out. and
nflor Mr and Mrs. llauer nnd thp children
had been taken to the J. Hood Wright
Hospital the others went home.
"It wan a wholly unavoidable accident,"
Mr. Archbold wild last night. "Capt.
Smith is a verv careful man and tho men
on the launch either misunderstood or)
rlisrog.irdisi the captain's signals. I was'
on the bridge at the time and saw the
accident. The Vixen, till hough a very
last Doai. was going siowiy at tno time
Iwcausj of the Jain of river traffic."
Others who saw th accident, however,
Mjd that the Vixen was going at a pretty
fair speed. Mr. Hauer said that the acci
dent wan caused because Cant. Smith
suddenly shifted hi course. Air. llauer
did not want to go between the Maine and l
the Vixen for fear the wash would unset ,
his boat, and he said that evidently the
oapfSln of the Vixen thought hp would
take that course. When lm did not the
Vixen suddenly shifted his helm, he said,

Andes Halley Hutler, V. S. N.. an en
sign attached to the battleship Rhode
Island since last July, was returning to
his ship In a shore launch at 5 o'clock
yesterday morning accompanied by En
sign Paul Spelcher of the tlhode Island
and Ensign Frank D. Alanock of th
Virginia, and was Just about to step
from the gunwale of the launch onto the
starboard gangway of the Rhode Island
off West 147th street, when a sharp roll
of the launch threw him Into the water.
He was drowned,
Ensign Manock, who had been at
tending the officers' smoker at tho
Hotel Astor with Knslgns Hutler and
Spelcher, and therefore, like his two
friends, was In uniform, dived Into tho
Mack cbh tide to save Hutler, whllo
Spelcher threw lite preservers to both
nnd then Jumped io the wheel of the
launch to swing the boit out so that
they might be picked up. Hut the swift
tide had carried Hutler awny so quickly
that he could not be saved and It was
only by hard work that Mr. Manock
wns rnfely pulled aboard again. I'p to
a late hour last night the body of the
drniwied enslcn had not been found.

Already the electric semaphore signals on ,,. ,1:1K!1mi Connecticut,
were telling the licet that n man was 9 :00 Secretary Meer to break out his
overboard. Immediately the white glare flag aboard tho Dolphin and to be saluted
of the searchlights of 11 mile of battle
ships to the south began to flash back
nnd forth across the waves nnd electric
bunch lights nboard the Nebraska, Vir
ginia, New Ilnmpshlre, Vermont, Kan
sas, Louisiana. South Carolina and
Michigan were flashed on the waters
In the hope thnt nil this flood of light!
in the coming dawn would glint on the
gold adornments of the young ensign's
uniform If he were still struggling on
the surfnee of the ebb tide running
south. Hut from the time he had first
splashed beneath the surface of the
river he was not seen again.
After n fruitless search to the soub
of the Hhode island the Helen D. pro
ceeded to the Virginia with Knslgn
Manock. He was well enough Inst
nlht to come ashore again.
The harbor police aided the sailors ,
yesterday after daylight In trying 10
find the body and weie still on tho
lookout for It last night. A story also '
reached the police that a sailor had
bfn drowned at the Fame time from
a launch, but as no ofllclnl report of
n sy.llor being lont was received nboard
the flBKshlp Connecticut It Is supposed
that the drowning of Knslgn Hutler had'
caused the rumor.
Knslgn Hutler was appointed to the
Kaval Academy from Louisiana on July I
2, 1007, and was graduated fiom An-'
nnpolls with the class of 1911, He then
nerved on the army cruiser Washington
nnd In July last was transferred to I
the Rhode Island.

A special servico was held at St. Pat
rick's Cathedral yesterday afternoon
nt o'clock by Cardinal Farley for the
sailors of the battleship fleot. Tho cathe
dral was crowded , but only a small number
of sailors was present.
Tho sermon was preached by Father
Chldwlck, who was chaplain of the Maine
when it was blown up at Havana. Father
Chidwick pointed out that tho navy is
the guard Inn of the country's prosperity
and n most powerful preventive of war.
He said that it wus the habit of some
people to treat the wearers of uniform
with contempt instead of with tho respect
anil consideration deserved. Ho also
spoke on the people who are opposed to
war even when the cause Is a Just one,
and said that in his opinion tile United
States had never embarked on a war

At the Cathedral of St. John the Dlvin
a special service was held at 4 o'clock
for the officers and men of the Atlantic
fleet, which was very slightly attended.
A section had been set apart for the sailor
men, but it was soon filled by a part of
tho large congregation which crowded
the church.
The few men from tho ships who did
attend were ushered to the spacious choir
stalls. Their presence and the few flags
draped Iwneath the lofty pulpit were tho
only evidence that tho occasion was out
of the ordinary.
The Rev. .J. Howard Melishof Brooklyn
delivered the sermon, taking as his text
David's words in II. Kings, xxin,,
"Shall I drink the blood of these, men
that went, and the peril of their lives?"
Dean Grosvenor of tho cathedral con

Sunday was a gloomy, disappointing
day for Admiral Osterhaus and his official
mess aboard the flagship Connecticut
in the North llivcr And for Joseph
Cook tho day was likewise dismal and
disappointing as he sat in his cell in tho
West Side jail thinking of tho keen dis
appointment of tho Admiral and of tho
embarrassment of Capt. Harry Knnpp
of tho Florida. Capt. Knapp has pride
in his negro chef, Joseph Cook. And
that is why the chef wan selected to cook
for tho Admiral and his line and staff
and guests yesterday. Ho was also to
prepare a dinner for President Taft.
But just as Cook wns getting ready
to exercise his skill he was arrested.
Last August ho got shore leave while
tho Florida was nt Hampton Hoads to
run up and visit his sister nt Annapolis,
Md. While passing through tho Southern
Itailroad station at Daltimoro he con
nected with thn travelling valise belonging
to Harry Marshall, who was on his way
homo to Michigan, and boarded his train
for Annapolis which pulled out too quick
for tho pollco to get him. Then beforu
tho Daltimoro police could run him down
he had returned to his ship.
Tho Governor of Maryland gavo De
tectivn William Worner a warrant for
Cook h arrest as a fugitive from Maryland
jiihtico nnd Gov. Dix hero granted his
requisition for tho chef's cuntody. Then
the. papers worn served Sulurilny on
Admiral Osterhaus and Cook was taken
to tho polico station
Magistrate Kernochan in the Wesl Sldo
court yesterday wns willing to turn Cook
over to Werner immediately, hut l)o
tectlvo Fay, who made tho arrest here,
said tho maUnr must llrHt bo brought to
tho attention of the District Attorney and
waivers of oxtrailltlnn procured from tho
prisoner. So thn Magistral? held Cook

There is no gainsaying it, and history
must record it as a fact, alt those moun
tains, hills, hlllets nnd rises of steel, iron
and wood out in the North Illver, com-
monly designated ns tho fleet, surrendered
abjectly yesterday, without firing a gun,
to a great army of civilians, led by old
General Curiosity.
From the great big sitperdreadnnught
Arkansas down to thellttlest 'submarine,
or mine destroyer, or tender, or whatever
tho littlest ono Is, not tho fnlntestlshow
of resistance was made to tho boarding

as the victors made their own terms,

Nothing wns sacred above or below

Rear AdmirpI Hugo Osterhaus, com
mander In chief of the'123 assorted'flghtlng

the river, had no more rights than the
chiefs of his respective divisions, Rear
Admirals Bradley A. Mske, Nathaniel
It. Usher, Cameron McR, Winslow and
Frank F. Fletcher, or the humblest
Admiral Osterhaus very frankly fled
from tho scene and concealed himself In
his quarters aboard the Connecticut,
here a few friends solaced him as best
they could. Tho other Admirals cither
did the same thing or sought safety
nshore, and all left their flag lieutenants
and flag secretaries to faco the tumult.
At dusk Lieutenant -Commanders An
ierson and Sexton of tho commander's
staff were seen aft on the quarterdeck
of the Connecticut holding their heads
and repeating monotonously, "No, that is

were crowded to capacity, while out on

there were long lines of launches awaiting
a turn nt the port companions, and everv

of the Clermont down to the newest thing

It looked ns if n ierson could get ashore

who filled Riverside Drive from beginning

Officially, yesterday was a quiet dar
for tho fleet; that is, alsiut one-half the
Jil.ono enlisted men were allowed shore
lllierty and the other half had no duties
to speak of except keeping ship. There
were no iwrades, no official visits and no
