FR0HMAN LAUGHED AT
WARNING NOT TO SAIL
Theatrical Magnate Received Letters
Asking Him to Transfer Passage.
Charles Frohman received an anony
mous warning prior to February 24 that
the LtiRttanla would bo destroyed on her
fatal trip across the Atlantic. Friends In
this city urged the manager to take an
American vessel, but he pooh-poohed
their alarm. Even half a dozen later let
ters failed to stop him.
It was on February 21, thn third night
of a new production of his at the Gar
rlok, "A Girl of Today," with Ann Mur
dock, which he had come over to Inspect,
after Its opening, Mr. Frohman, talking
with soma olose personal friends, men
tioned his contemplated trip on the Lusi
tania. They showed alarm for his safety
and urged him to take an Amorlcan boat.
Mr. Frohman, however, showed no con
cern, even though, as he admitted, he had
received a letter of warning. This he dis
played. It was typewritten on fine sta
tionery and mailed In Washington. It
warned him of the destruction of the Lu
sitania, but was unsigned. Mr. Froh
man put the letter back In his pocket,
brushed aside his friends' fears, and went
to his death.

QUEENSTOWN, May 8. Among the
liner's first victims was a woman with a
little baby, She was sitting opposite the
ship's doctor at luncheon when the shock
came. The doctor told her to get on deck
quickly and Bho did so, taking to one of
the boats. This was pulling away as the
Lusitania took her final plunge. All In
the boat were carried down, only the
baby's cap floating on the water showing
where more than a score of persons had
gone to their death.
Julian De Ayala, the Cuban Consul at
Liverpool, came ashore wrapped In a
blanket covering the only garment he
had on when the Lusitania was sunk. He
was In bed when the liner was torpedoed.

The first story of the tragedy to reach

"The passengers wero at lunch when

One of theso demolished tho pngino room.
The vessel had nlieady begun to list

Tho list was so bad that only about 10
boats were gotten safely Into tho water.
Roughly speaking, they carried about BOO.

"Wo were at luncheon, when suddenly

plosion well forwnrd, that seomed to
throw her on her beam ends. Wo had
not bclloved It possible that nn attack

"Tho explosion was followed by another

shuddered and almost Immediately began
to list to port.
"Officers and men rushed for tholr sta

of clearing the boats was begun. There
was llttlo panic so far as I could see.
every one being too dazed to roaltze just
what actually was happening. For a few
minutes wo believed that tho stories of
tho safety of tho big liner would prove
true, nnd that she would stay afloat, but
tho constantly Increasing list showed
that this hope was vain.
"Many of the passengers ran here and
there about the decks, although Captain
Turner and his officers tried their best to
pacify them. Many of the women, how
ever, were hysterical and some of them,
with Infants In their arms, caught at the
fastenings of the boatn and hampered the
launching. Altogether 10 boats wero
finally swung off. Lady MncWorth was
picked up unconscious after she had been
In the water for three hours. Wo had no
warning nnd the big steamer sank within
12 or 15 minutes after we were first hit.
"It was n dastardly outrage, desorvlng
tho condemnation of the entire civilized
world. It was a beautiful sunshiny day.
The sea was smooth and to that Is due
thn fact that any one was saved. Had
the water been rough or had It been
night every one would have been lost.
"I doubt very much whether any of
the portsldo boats were launched. They
wero In such position that they could
not be swung overBlde. The steamer was
headed for the shore tho moment that
tho explosion took place. Captain Tur
ner stuck to the bridge to the last and
was picked out of the wnter three hours

PROHIBITIONISTS persist in claiming that laws prohibiting the
use of liquors can be enforced. But experience proves this a
FALLACY. Official Government reports are based on FACTS,
and a few are here submitted:
FORMER U. S. Commissioner of Internal Revenue Royal E,
Cabell, said: "The enactment of prohibitory laws not only does
not prohibit the consumption of strong drink, but gives no indica
tion of decreasing that consumption."
THE present U. S. Commissioner of Internal Revenue William
H. Osborne, stated: "As the various states vote 'dry' the oper
4 4T- HE matter of illegal Bale of liquor U still with us. We have
1 all the odium, trouble and expense that go with the unli
censed sale of liquor; also aU the misery and degradation that these
unlicensed places cause, without one cent of tribute in return, and
it seems we are destined to go on sptnding the people s money and
our time trying to enforce an unpopular prohibition law, one that
Is not backed by public sentiment. And no law can be successfully
enforced which does not have the majority of the people behind it.
ONE faction claims that prohibition does not prohibit, and
another will say that license does not regulate; but I wish
to state that prohibition does breed 'speakeasies, and opens a field
for unscrupulous persons to engage in the illegal sales of liquor."
