It was a qties tlon of selecting volunteers, although tho trip was one of the most perilous ever undertaken by the men of the merchant man. The Olympic has h splendidly trained lot of oarsmen, made up of tokers, stewards, oilers and seamen. They manned fourteen boats on tho port side, and lowered them Into the boiling sea. Not one boat was damaged, although tho drop from tho boat deck Is more than fifty feet. Naturally Capt. Haddock had made a lino lee with his hlsh sides to do the trlrk In shlpshapa.

All the rest were put on destroyers, , IH",'!? i to ths aid of the doomed warship, home1 were taken aboard the cruiser Liverpool, Some of the Olympic's boats made three trips to the Audacious and most made two.

Then the Olympic, on signal from the battleship, headed for the nearest haven, Loch Swllly, about twenty miles away. If that hawer hail held the Audacious might havo been saved for repair.

It snapped with a boom after the Olympic had been only a few minutes under way, Capt, Haddock hacked Ills ship down so close to thn bow of the crippled battleship that It teemed easy to Jump from one deck to the other.

The Trrnp says Americans are unable to understand how a nation which has always been considered laborious, scien tific and progressive could bo guilty such acts.
