Captain Moore, wheu questioned to nigbt regarding the statement made before the Washington committee that one of his passengers had MOB distress signals, gave out the following state ment : "We received the wireless message some time before 1l' o'clock on Bun day night. At that time we were west of the position given bv the Titanic I operntor and immediately turned about. W'c received -iiortly afterward a .see ond message giving the Titanic t po1 tion as 50.14, whereas the first message had given it as 60.20.

" Wc did not enter the ICS licld. What was the use? Wc did not know where to o and I had I-jOD passengers aboard. If there had been any defi nite information, or if we had knowu the exact location of the Titanic, it irould have been different, but i; the dark and with her position in doubt we might i.iJ-t as well not. have been there at all. Signals Unseen, He Says. At no time during the night, nor in. deed during the whole incident, did J or any of my officers, so far as J know." see any signals. If we had done so I would have taken every risk, even with my passengers, to render whatever assistance was possible. To ward morning are got io touch with the Oarpatbia, but U was not until halt past 8 o'clock that we were informed by that vessel that the Titanic had gone down and that there waa no use m remaining longer about the scene of the wreck. "Previous to this I had endeavored h changing the course of the Mount Temple, to sail around the south of the ice field and approach the scene of the wreck from the eastward, a had been done by the Carpatbia. That steamer, when we sighted her first, was on the east of the field while we were on the WCKt ' ' The first officer of tho Mount 1 em pie adds to this statement that, on orders of the captain, ho went aloft and remained in the lookout for up wards of three hours during which time he was noarly frozen. Rut he states positively that in this time he never saw any signal of any kind. Crew Denounce Captain, On the other hand, there arc mem bcrs of the crew who, without hesita tion, are outspoken in their condemna tion of the failure of the Mount Tem ple to reach the scene of the wreck. As opposed to the statements given above, sailors, firemen and- others de clare that they sat on deck for hours and watched the Titanic sending up rockets and burning red and blue lights until the Mount Temple steamed so far away that these signals wcro lost. One of the nailers who says ho was on watch Bundav night states that he heard Third Officer Not ley tell the l iitiiin of the distress message, but in stead of the steamer's heading directly to the wreck, she steamed away an other course, oo that the lights were BOOB lost. An oiler named Pickard, who was on duty at the time, declares that the second engineer went below and asked the men to keep her fired up to the limit, as it was a case of life or death. Another engineer adds that wheu his watch was over be went oo deck and with a lot of others, passengers and crew, leaned over the rail and saw the almost steady stream of rockets being sent up by the Titanic. He adds that in spite of the cold of the night ho re mained on deck until almost 8 o'clock watching the signal lie declares that all the time of the accident the Mount Temple was onlv between five and ten miles from the scene. The crew are outspoken in their comments, but the officers nre' reticent. I he statements of the crew agree with those of the captain insofar as reports- of preparing the lifeboats, etc, are concerned, but the men differ from the officers on the essential point regardine the distance of the Mount temple from, the scene of the wreck and r.lso as to whether the rocket sig nals were actually seen. There is a difference of forty or fifty miles ir their computation of the distance. Dr. QuiBtsman, who is reported tc have mafic statements agreeing with the stories fold by the Mount Temple ' crew, is not in St. .Tohn.

In reply Senator Smith dispatched thS following: "Telegram received, f win greatly appreciate it if depositions of captain of the vessel Mount Temple, which s sched uled to null from St. John, N B., to morrow (Friday), could b taken bj com missioner as suggested by you and for warded to me at Washington, relative to movements of his ship on Bunady even ing, April 14, statin? relative positions to Titanic and Carpatbia. together with a detailed report of all wireless messages sent and received.'1 Lowe Is Called. Harold G. Lowe, fifth officer of the Ti tanic, was the next witness. "You were present at the test of the Titanic in Belfast harbor?" aBked Sena tor Smith. "Yes, sir. "What did vou do? ' "I looked to the lifeboats. With Mr. Moody and Mr Boxhall r looked over the lifeboats, examined them carefullv and found everything in them, except that In one a dipper was missing." As to the collapsible boats. T.owe said he could not remember precisely what arse found. "We did tlnd Du re were plenty of oars, with extra oars for each boat." The witness said while It had been planned to hold a lifeboat drill April 1. it was postponed because there was a breeze. In fact, the witness said. It was almost "squally." He said that, before the Titanic sailed one drill of tho crew was held, tie could not remember whether it was held at Bel fast or in the harbor at Southampton, He also hesitated when asked his station and did not know whether any oiher officers were at their stations on the starboard side of the ship where his station was located. "I was a complete stranger in the ship." lie said In extenuation. Later he remem bered that the test was held at South ampton. He was in charge of one of the two hoats lowered there. The entire drill, he said, consisted In rowing about the harbor for a half hour "'Now, Mr. Lowe,' the senator contin ued, "no other drill took place after that until the accident?" "N'o drill took place after that." "Was there no Are drill no alarm, a drill requiring the presence of each man at a given place?" Not Quite- Sure. "There always is fire drill when we have hoat drill. There was a lire drill previous to tho general drill at Southamp ton.'' "Are you quite sure you had that fire drill?" "Ict me see." said Lowe. "I don't want to bo telling a storv I may be conflicting here with some others of the ship " Lowe thought for a long time and then said: "We will annul that, because I am not sure " "Well," said the senator, "We will not annul that and want your best answer." "Well, I m here to help you all I can and I don't remember." "Then that is what you want us to un derstand. You do not remember?" "Yes." Lowe said most of the officers of the Ti tanic at the beginning were strangers to each other "Did you ever hear of Ice near New Foundland "N'o. sir " "Did you ever hear of an iceberg?" In quired Senator Smith In surprise. "Yes, sir, off Cape Horn." This one, Lowe, said was the onlv one . he had eeen in his career until ho saw several at dawn following the collision. "Were they In the course of the Ti tanic'" "Yes, sir. They must have been." He said the big one was at least 100 feet high This was four or five miles away and all within a radius of six miles. The Secretary of the Treasury Franklin MacVeagh arrived at the committee room during Lowe's examination and sat at the committee table near the chairman throughout the morning session. Lowe said when be cot out on deck afttr tho accident he began working at the lifeboats. "I was working the boats under First Officer Murdoch, be said. "Boat No. 5 was the first one we loaded." "How many mn were helping vou on th boat?" "I should say about (en. two at snob end, two In the boat and others at the ropns." "Who got Into that boat?" "I don't know. Had not some one raid so T would not have known that I or dered Mr. Tsmay from the boat. "A steward met me on the Carpal hla He said to me. 'What did vou say to Ismay that night on th deck?' I said that I didn't know I hod said anvthlnc: to Mr. Ismay. I said didn't know Mr. I didn't know him. Well, 'he steward saJd I bad used very strong lan guage to Mr I-:nay. Shell I rcp.Mi1 If you want me to I will If not I won't I happened to talk to Ismav because be appeared to be getting excited i. area saying Sitdtedly, 'Lower away. low er away, lower away.'" Chairman Smith asked Mr. Ismay about the languaRe and Mr. Ismay suggested that the objectionable language be writ ten down to see if It w;ts appropriate. This was done. After Chairman Smith had read what Iiwn hod written, he said "Then you said 'his to Mr lsm"- Welcome Words to Women j&h Women who suffer with disorders peculiar to their sex shoold write our Association and receive free H BawSuw""""! the advice of a physician of over 40 years' experience I s skilled and successful specialist in the diseases Sgfl hW Of women Ever? letter of this sort hat the mit careful considerstios and is regarded at sacredly ."ij oonfidentisl.

N l mentioning the OTdeCtlOnahlc word. but showing it to the witness, "Why did you sny It?" "Because lie in his anxiety to set the boats lowered." Lowe replied, "was In terfering, with our work.' Senator smith sought to dlecovt i Whether many men, women or children bad been refused admission to the boats or were put out after they had gotten In, l.owe said nt) one was refused nnd declared the only confusion was by the passengers Interfering with tbe lowerlnc gear Everything was qulel and orderly aboard, he said. "With everything uuiet and orderly, who select , the people to k-ct into these boats?" No Selections Made. "There whs no such thing as selecting. First, we took the women odd children, then others as they came. Then? was a procession at both ends of tbe boats; In little knots they were, little crowds.' "As you passed tbe women Into the o. ia : s w bs t i Id s ou so y?" "I simply shouted. 'W 'omen and chil dren first, men. stand back.' " W'.t.s there ;my discrimination aa to class?" "None whatever." "Was Mr. smhy there?" "Tea. I didn't know It waa Mr Ismay then. He elded in lowering boat No 3." Senator Smith sought vainly, to learn the number of women in lifeboat No ?,. The witness ventured the hellcf that tbe iio:ti contained about fortv persons. "Why weren't there more?" asked the Chall man. w.. couldn't find anyone who wanted I to go. They seemed not to care to get Into the boats." The witness sab) that everyone was free! to wander wherever be pleased and there! was no effort to restrain or direct the J passengers, "Did you see any women there?" asked Senator Smith. "Certainly I saw women, hut I didn't have time to go and drag them away. They didn't respond to our calls " Picked Up Survivors. "We rowed back and around the Wreck," said the Witness, "nnd we nicked 1 1 n four men who were slrucr-. gllng In the water. Three of them sur vi ed. but the fourth, a Mr. Hoyt of New York, riled shortly afler we took him out of tbe water I do BOt know the names of the others." "What time w ns this?' "It was ,1ust breaking dawn and It was I light enough for me to cet a ffood look around." The witness said be then sighted the Carpatbia and set out for her because his was the fastest boat. He w.is afraid. , be .iid, that the Carpathia might miss , them "Yon said you waited before returning I to Hie wreck until 'things quieted down.' I said Senator Smith "What did yon mean by 'quieted down T " "Until the cries censed." I "The cries of tlie drowning?" "Vcs, si,-. We did not clare go Into ' the Struggling maSS, It WOUld have 'sunk us. Wc remained on the edge of the scene and would have taken ncry ; op.- aboard thai we could, but it would Via e been suicide to have gone in " "How long did it: require for things to ! ifel quiet?" asked the s.-.nator 'I mean I for the cries and screams of the drown ing people?'' "About an hour and B half." "If any person had asked you to lake them In. you would'" "Certainly. I was watching for every body! anybody," said lxwe, "but to have gone Into the drowning mass would have been useless All would have been lost." How manj persons wore In your boat when you went alongside the Carpatbia?'" Saved a Boatload, "About forty-five. I took them off a sinking collapsible boat. I left the bodies of three men." Twenty -one, Ixiwe said, were up to their ankles in water, and would have sunk In three minutes. He made no effort to fix the identity Of the dead, for he said ho w-as there not to save bodies but to save life. Then he sailed lor tho Carpatbia and unloaded his hoat. ' What did you do then?" asked Sena tor Smith. 'Nothing, sir," returned the witness sharply, "What was there left to do?" Sentor smith wanted to know about the shooting on the Titanic while she was sinking. 1iwe said ho bad fired three shot? Into the water to scan- away Immigrants on one of tbe decks, who. be reared, were about to swamp a loaded boat by jumping. He was certain the shots struck no one l.owe then was ! temporarily excused Lightoller Recalled. C. h Lightoller) second officer of the Titanic, took the stand Immediately after recess Senator Bourne inquired If the watertight doors were arranged to pro tect the vital pans of the ship.

The While Stnr was tbe only line of Which he know that kept six lookouts on ea'-h ship. Senator Burton asked the witness to relate his conversations with Ismay on1 the Carpatbia. Lightoller said he and 1 his brother officers talked over the sall Inc of tho Cedrlc and had agreed It would have been a "jolly good Idea" If they could catch the vessel It would result in keeping them together and lei everyone set home. "Mr. Ismay. when the weather thick ened, remarked to me," said Lightoller, "that. It was hardly possible we could catch the hoat. He asked me If I thought It desirable that he send a wireless to hold the Cedrlc. and I said 'Most cer tainly.' The telegram was sent We were all airreed that It was the best course and we all advised it." Lightoller said that when the telegram from New York, saying the Cedrlc would not be lietd. came he urged Mr. Ismay to Insist upon the Cedrlc being held. Quartermaster's Story. Robert Hlchens. quartermnstor in charge of the lifeboat which took off Major Pueben and others, testified that when the collision occurred be was at the Titanic s wheel. H said tbe officers had been warned to look out for small ice and that he bad been ordered to have) the beaters started in the chart room. The first he knew of the collision was when the order came from the brldse. "berg ahead." "The first officer rushed over to give the ord'r.
