Persons Injured.
SEATTLE, Wash., pril 25. Several
persons were injured, the sound steam

on the Pacific coast, was wrecked late
louiaht when too Alaska Steamship
company's bis steel steainsnip Alameda
dot beyond contTol as slic was heino;
taken Into Iter berth at pier No. - and
plowed through the Goleman dock.
As far as known no lives v.-erc lost.
The m uire. i include the following:
Mrs. George B. Lynch, Anacortes,
Wash., bruised and ( nt.
Miss Emma Anderson. Seattle, ankle
broken.
hs J, W. Page, Seattle, bruised.
The Alameda . tu eommaod of Cap
tain John A. ()13rien, nound pilot for
the Alaska Steamship company, was
ret ui nine; to her berth on the south
side ol pier 2 from the Standard Oil
wharf, where she had gone to take on
fuel oil.
As the big steamship approached the
pier captain O'Brien signalled the en
ginerooni for slow Bpced to onable the
vessel to make the .sharp turn into tho
slip. Either through a misunderstand'
iiil' of signals or because of the fail
ure of the engineroom telephone, the
Alameda started full speed ahead to- i
ward the Coleman dock.
Captain O'Brien saw that the .rash
could imt be averted aud tied down
the whistle to warn the people in the
waitinc room on the end of the pier of
their danger.
The lone blast brought nu n ind
women to the windows, who imme
diately turned and tied for shore. The
women injured were .rushed in the
panic-etricken throne that straggled at
the doora leading from the waiting'
room to the exit callere. By the time
the Alameda struek the pier the wait
incroom was cjnpty.
Captain O'Brien dropped both port
and starboard anehorp in an effort to
utop his vessel, but. she poked her nose
into the wooden structure and plowed
through, slieinc off 100 feet of the end
of tho pier and emerging on tho othr
side with her deck covered with wreckage.
The Telegraph, which had juat dis
charged her passLMtjrers front Eerett,

MURDERER MORRIS
TO MUKESTJTEMEKT
Refuses to Reveal Nature of
It at Present; Declares He
Will Die Game.
J j Mori is the condemned handtt
whose execution will take place next
Tuesday morning has announced that lie
will make a written statement shortly
before he is id to his death. He has
not revealed the nature f tho state
ment and there is much speculation at
the state prison as to what It will eon
tain A confession of Kiillt would shed
no new light, as the murder of Which he
Is guilty wait committed in broad day
light In the hear! of the cUy. While
ttylng to escape capture after a holdup
he shot lo death a civilian who obstructed
hi path.
It. In thought by some who have talked
with him that he will confess other
crimes. After serving n twenty-year
8(ntenee he was at liberty tor many
months before captured in this city, and
it i likely that lie committed other
holdups.
H will be recalled thai Soon after his
conviction he issued a sensational state-iiir-ni
to the effect that he had been
robbed of jsnnn worth of diamonds while
In tho elty Jail. It Is probable that he
niu repeat his accusation, as he is
known to cherish relentless hatred against
the pull'-e.
Por several weeks two Bfethodist cler
gymen have called on Morris almost
daily. For B time he seemed to show
some slight interest In their ministra
tions, but within the last few days he
v.as displayed considerable initaiion
whenever thc.V have I ailed on him.
Monis became enragod when he read
in one of the newspa.pers that he was
losing his nerve
"1 wish I had the. man hrrc I bat said
Hint," he cried with an o,.tli "I'd show
him T haven't lost my nerve, and that
I'm going to die name."

PARIS. April 25. The Titanic after
striking an iceberg on tho night,
of April 15 and sending out wire
leg distress calls, received replies
from no less than seven ships, but re
fused to Communicate with any of them
not vesels of her own line. One of
her early signals was picked np bv the
Prankfeurt, then only 1"0 miles away,
but; she refused to answer the Frank
feurt 'a calls. She would only com
municate with her sister ship the
Olympic
'I he foregoing tacts which seem in
dubitable, stand out from the report
of the first operator on La Provence,
of the French Line, winch was incor
porated by Captain Veaep in his report
to his company upon his arrival here.
Report Is Official.
The exact text of Captain Veaco'a
report is here appended. It is signed by
the La Provence wireless operator and
countersigned by Captain Veaco and
likewise by the French government in
the person of Commissioner Bernard,
without whose permission nnd counter
siguature it could uot, he made public.
The conclusion is drawn that the Ti
tanic refused offers of help from ships
of other lines than her own to avoid
paying salvage a payment which
would of course, be unnecesarv in ease
she was rescued by her own line. The
report follows:
LA PROVKNCK. April 17. i n i -
On (lie lith of April at C o'clock.
Greenwich time, after the reception
of a press telegram, sent by Poldhu.
we heard the Titanic rend the sig
nal "C. Q D." distress) and the
following message. "Position 11.16
N., no. 1 1 . Require assistance"
We called immediately to Inform
the Titanic that we had received her
appeal, but our power would not per

heard the 1-Yahkfucrt working with
the Tltani.- and gave her position
19.17 K., 52.10 W-. which would give
about ISO mJies of distance separat
ing these two ships.
Olympic Makes Reply.
The Titanic continued her .alls nnd
managed to get In communication
with two othei .-Thips. the Viiginia.
and the Cincinnati. About vr,o in the
morning we beard the Olympic, which
sent the Titanic the following mes
sage: "Latitude 10.82 x. Long. 61. IS w.
. T am lighting UP al possible hollers
as f:ist. as i can -Haddock."
it should be remarked in patting
that we received this message from
a distance "t nearly 1300 miles. The
ITrankiuert, which w.-is within a
nearer range, made many calls to
the Titanb', hut wa not replied to.
It seems thwt the Tltani.- wished to
keep in communication only with the

Senator BrlstOW of ICansas wa the
principal speaker in support of Colonel
Roosevelt and Senator John Sharp Wil
liams of Mississippi was tho principal
assailant.
Mr. Williams characterized the former-
president as a "modem Caesar,
willing to seize power by any means. '
while Mr BrlstOW defended the colonel
as the modern tribune of the people, and
warmly Criticised President Taft's ad
ministration. The debate became almost ultra -sensational
when Senator W illiama read to
tho senate a parody oh the apostles'
creed as follows:
New Creed.
"1 believe in Theodore Roosevelt,
maker of nois? and strife and In
ambition his only creed (my Lord).
He was born of the lover of power
and suffered under William H. Taft;
was crucified, dead and buried. He
descended Into Africa. The third
year he arose aaln from the Jungles
and as ended into favor and altteth
on the right hand of hia party,
whence he shall come to scourge the

"I believe in the holy Outlook, the
Big Stick, the Ananias club, the for

resurrection of presidential ambitions
and the third term everlastingly
Amen, amen, a.men.
Bristow's Charges.
The debate was precipitated by Sena

terday that collusion had existed be
tween the Kena.te and the department of
justice In the sending of the official
correspondence yesterday and that par
tiality lied been shown In that only cor

General Wlekerabatn had his reply ready

lution of yesterday reached him yester

Similar resolutions--by Senators Over

with.
Senator Johnston dnled there had
been an understanding and said he had
seen neither the attorney general nor the
president for a month Senator Clark of
Wyoming pointed out that the Johnston
resolution differed from the others In
that It Called for certain sje,-itie Informa

staneea In wbleh Colonel Roosevelt, -when
president, had withheld correspondence
from the bureau of corporations.
Williams Protests.
Senator BrlstOW rmarked that evi

"If the senator eon show me the pres

"It would have to be a matter of grave

TRAIN IS BLOWN
FROM THE TRACK
Many Persons Injured in Disaster
on the Union Pacific in
Nebraska
OMAHA. Neb., April 25. Twenty
nine persons were injured, one of them,
James Davis, perhaps fatally, when a
cyclonic wind struck Union Pacific
passenger train .Vo. ;j.", one mile west
of North Loup. Neb., late this after
noon. The entire train, the engine ex
cepted, was blowu from the track and
all the cars were overturned.
A mile of telegraph line was blowu
down, cutting off direct communication
with outside cities and preventing a
list of the casualties being scut out for
soveral hours after the train was
wrecked. Brakeniao Levi Hamilton
was dangerouslv cut and bruised.
The traio composed of i combination
mail, baggage and express car, and two
day coaches, was running at a moder
ate rate when the gale struck it. The
engine alone was left on the track and
as soon as Engineer O'Brien realized
what bad happened he ran his engine
to Ord and returned with a ear, in
which the injured were taken to Ord.
Engineer O Brion said that the storm
did not take the form of B tornado.
The wind had been blowing a gale all
afternoon and as the traiti reached an
open stretch it was caught, and over
turned before O'Brien could stop.
A severe hail and . rain storm followed
the gale, and caused much suffering
among the injured before they could
be moved to the town. Earlier in the
afternoon a tornado in Fuxnies county
demolished three farm houbes , near
Cambridge, and caused the serious, in
