THE WASHINGTON HBRAUD. THURSDAY. APRIL 18. 1912. o MARKETS'-FINANCE-COMMERGE S 1 WALL STREET HEWS Stock Market Closes Strong on, a Beduced Volume of Trading. By THOMAS C. SHOTYVEIA. New York; April 17. On a reduced volume ot trading the stock market rlsbted Itself to-day and closed strong and more cheerful. It la now apparent that the irregularity of the last few days has been due to the Titanic disas ter. Not that the money loss la enough to make any material difference with values In general, but there was scarce 'ly a bank or brokerage concern out was In mourning for some victim. While the attention xf the whole world has been directed to th Titanic, gener al fundamentals pt the market have progressed further, toward Improvement. The weather "has moderated, and crops are In still better condition. The con ference between miners and operators and locomotive engineers and railroads have been satlsfa'ctory. The terms of settlement Jn both instances have been published In this"',columrC and 'within a few days' they will be announced of ficially. There are to be no labor trou bles of Importance In America this year. Not for years has everybody been In such dead earnest about helping the re turn of good times. Directors of the Amalgamated Copper Company meet to-day to advance the dividend rate. It will be made I per cent at least, and there Is some pros pect of a 5 per cent dividend. Reading was taken up by brokers who .are supposed to be working for the first national group of operators. When this fact was discovered by a few of the shorts they ran to cover without hesita tion. The entire market had a firm un dertone. Specialties were firm also. Can remained at or near Its high record price In spite of the -selling bytraders. Colo rado Fuel was in dcmandTand even Erie displayed strength. Paper stocks vtcre strong Marine shares recovered some what, although. In view of the Titanic disaster, neither the stocks nor the bonds can be-said to hae any immediate specu lative value. The company will need a couple of years to xet -back to the posi tion tl occupied before the loss of the great ship. Speculation In the Marconi shares went beyond the wildest limits to-day, when the price was advanced from 133 to ISO. They were Ku a share last week. There was nothing to Justify this. The affair is useful, however, as an illustration of London stock Jobber). Wall Street often does things that are criticised, but the Jlarconi movement, which has been en gineered from London i typical of things done abroad so frequently that they are teldom criticised. Marconi will collapse, of course. Just as most pi the London curb booms collapse. NEW YOBK STOCK JlAEKET. QuoiaUsn furnished by W. B. Hlbba members of the rw York Stock Exchange. Hit. Budding.

Capt, Smith, of the Ill-fated Titanic, had warning- of the dancer ahead of him In the slant Ice berg; that sent his vessel to the bottom of the North Atlantic. As a matter ot fact, the Titanic relayed the warnings to the shore. The Marconi operators of La Bretagne, which arrived to-day from France, re cited messases that were being; sent out in all directions from the vicinity of Cape Race telling of the existence of bergs and Ice fields. The Titanic sank In latitude 4X08 north and longitude 60.14 west. On April IX, two days before the Ti tanic sank, the steamship Caronla. eastbound, flashed the following; mes sage: "Westbound steamers reported Ice bergs, growlers (huge chunks of ice) and field Ice In latitude COD north and longitude 49.00 to 5L00 west on April 12." This message was picked up by Luelen Oury. the wireless operator of Ia Bre tagne, then In the vicinity of Cape Race, It Is more than likely that the operator on board the Titanic received the same warning. On the same day, the 13th. La Bre tagne met La Provence, which confirmed the report of Impending danger from Jhe IsebeYgs moving across the ?orth Atlan tic route. A message sent out ty La Provence read! "We passed In sight of Ice fields and bergs In latitude 4X30 north, longitude 43.00 to 60.00 west. Ice fields about sixty miles In length. On the morning of April K La Bre tagne approached the Ice field In ques tion, whereupon Capt. Mace Instructed his marconl operator to send out warn ings to all other vessels within the radius of his wireless Instruments. The following eastbound ships were notified to watch out for the threatening danger. VOTE FAVOBS CLABK. Isltors at Elks Festlral Strang F for Speaker.

IIIUNIG'S WRECK STIRS CONGRESS m ijk icii Senate Passes Smith Besolu- tion Demanding Inquiry of Cause of Disaster. MANY BILLS IN HOUSE Plans for Criminal Punishment of Negligent Officers and Abandon ment of North Bonte. Stirred "by the gravity of the wreck of the Titanic, Congress yesterday took first steps In what promises to .be an Inter national reform m the laws of navigation. The Senate unanimously passed a Joint resolution Introduced by Senator William Alden Smith, of Michigan, which em powers the Committee on Commerce to Investigate the causes of the ternoie dis aster with a view to preventing their repetition In the future. Chief among the reforms suggested, in the Smith reso lution are a demand that this country determine ,jhe number of lite-boats, life rafts, and life-preservers necessary for the protection of passengers ana crew, the necessity of 'determining a southern route, which will prevent the danger of Icebergs and a general Internationa agreement regulating the size of ships. Smith Demands Tie form. "Concerning the disaster of the Ti tanic." said Senator Smith yesterday.. can only repeat the regret which all members of Congress have expressed that ship In order to establish a record should risk the Uvea of thousands in' trusted to Its care. That they are En glishmen or American, or any other na tlonality Is a matter that does not con eern us. The terrible fact remains that whether or no the captain of the Tltanls exercised due vigilance, he attempted the dangerous northern route. Possibly It was the natural desire that the greatest snip In the world should likewise be the fast est ship In the world. These matters are of detalL We must guard the safety of the hundred thousand or more passengers who annually cross the Atlantic" The Senate defied all precedents In passing the Smith resolution yesterday. and It Is probable lt will be brought be fore the House and passed to-day. There Is not a member of the Senate, or of the House, either, who. weighed down ty the cateclysmlc wreck, has not re solved that the disaster ot the sinking of the Titsnlc shall never be repeated. Even with trx vague Information at their commend, the members of both Houses flooded committees with their bills and resolutions Intended to prevent another Titanic wreck. The Senate Resolution. The Smith resolution In full reads as follows: "Resolved. That the Committee on Commcrc or a subcommittee thereof Is hereby authorised and directed to Inves tigate the causes leading to the wreck of the White Star liner Titanic, with Its attending loss of life so shocking to the civilised world. "Resolved, further. That said commit tee or subcommittee thereof Is hereby empowered to summon witnesses, send for persons and papers, and to take tes timony as may be necessary to deter mine the responsibility therefor, with a view to such legislation as may be neces sary to prevent, as far as possible, any repetition of such a disaster. "Resolved further. That the committee shall Inquire particularly Into the num ber of life boats, life rafts, and life pre servers, and other equipment for the protection of the passengers and crew; the number ot persons aboard the Ti tanic wnethr passengers or crew, and whether adequate inspection wss made of such vessel. In view of the large num ber of American passengers traveling over a route commonly regarded as dan gerous from Icebergs, and whether lt Is feasible for Congress to take steps look ing to an International agreement to se cure the protection ot sea traffic Include lug regulation of the size of ships and designation of routes. Resolved further. That in the report of the said committee lt shall recommend such legislation ns lt shall be deemed expedient, and the expenses Incurred by this Investigation shall be paid out of the contingent fund of the Senate upon vouchers appnned by the chairman.' Many Measures in Rooae, While the Senate acted on the Smith Joint resolution the House members were no less busy. Representative Cal der ot New York Introduced a bill calling for. an International conference upon the laws of navigation, and making compul sory certain routes at certain times of the year; Representatives' Cary, Cllne, and Bulzer also Introduced bills prevent ing any ship from entering an American port wb,lch was not protected by a num ber of life boats sufficient to carry off all passengesa Members of the Crew. "There is no excuse." said Mr. Sulzer, who Is chairman of, the Committee on Foreign Affairs, "for the failure of any ship or company, whether through the laxity of the laws or not. to fall to carry sufficient boats to prevent the drowning of passengers and crew when the ship sinks. It represents another case ot the General Slocum, and lt must be con trolled by law." Chairman Alexander, of the House Committee on Merchant Marine and Fisheries, to which most of the measures Introduced have been referred. Intro duced two Joint resolutions. One gives the President the tight to hold an In ternational conference, with a view to determining safe routes for ships en gaging In Intercontinental traffic, and the other provides for a patrol of the Atlantic Ocean by government' ships. This latter resolution gives to the gov ernment the authority by which, lt Is hoped, survivors from, such wrecks aa the Titanic may be reached within a few hours via wireless. A resolution of similar Import was In troduced by Representative Levy of New York, who urged that the govern ment should provide ships to save per sons from ships wrecked on the dan gerous northern route. Representative Kindred of New York Introduced, a bill providing for the examination of thit section of the Revised Statutes which allowed foreign ships to enter Ameri can ports unless they are able to pass Inspection as provided for by American laws. Members of . Congress deeply stirred by the wreck of the Titanic, will doubtless act on one or more of these resolutions before the week Is ended. Representative Cllne of Indiana Intro duced a bill In the House providing crim inal punishment foe the captain ot any easel who leaves or artemjsHs tit leave any American port Hales that vessel be ecrolppetl with tuAetatst Webeats to ae oosaaaodate) every on aboard. The ClUte bill prevleSea that star cap late or other cosssaaasln; oeet of a vessel, who shall attempt to leave as American port with a ship not equipped with ample llfe-savlgg apparatus may' be fined from SX.030 to 3,090, or may be Imprisoned from se to five years. It Is provided the fine strati be a Ben en the vessel That Cllae bill Is another measure In troduced because of the Titanio disaster. Senator Shlvely of Indiana Is consider ing the advisability of Introducing soma measure In the Senate which will lead to the abandonment of the so-called North Atlantic route, now followed by most ttarsfeAtlantle steamers. Just how this can be accomplished he Is not certain, unless It may be done by mak ing the suggestion of an international agreement which would Induce .foreign steamship companies to take a more southerly course. It Is also thought that the American chart makers of the Nayy Department might be advised to lay out a- course which would avoid the dangerous Ice bergs which -de In the course of the northern route. This- route Is said to be about 100 miles shorter and enables the fastest steamers to save about five hours. Senator Shlvely Is not certain Just what steps should be taken, but ia giving the matter consideration. CAPT. SMITH WAS AWARE OF ICEBERG Had Been Advised of Dangerous Obstruction by the Hydro-. graphic Office. The master of the Titanic was In formed of the presence of Icebergs In time to avoid them by the hydrographlc office of the Navy Department, accord ing to a statement issued by Secretary of the Navy Meyer, late yesterday. The hydrographlc office Issued a dally bulle tin showing almost the exact location of drifting Ice and derelicts. The In formation contained In these bulletins Is transmitted by wireless to all vessels at sea. The statement says In part: "Thus, In the case ot the recent loss of the Titanic the shipping -companies and ship masters had been put In pos session of the experiences and Judg ments ot a trained staff In the Hydro graphic Office. More specifically, the shipping community bad been provided with the pilot charts showing the condi tion of the Ice. "A trained seaman can and dots esti mate the probable speed and direction of drift of any dangerous obstruction, so that It he had knowledge of the exist ence of an Iceberg or a derelict In a certain location at a given date he can reckon Its future position for an Interval of several days." REFERSloRECK IN SPECIAL SERMON Bishop Harding Says Hen Are Too Irreverent and Bely Too Much on Themselves. That the men of to-day rely too much on their own Ingenuity and the wonders of steam and electricity rather than di vine power until they are brought to their senses by some disaster such as the Ti tanio wreck was averred by Bishop Al' fried Harding. In a sermon last night at Christ Episcopal Church. The occasion was the confirmation of a class ot thir ty-two. Men to-day. said the bishop, are prone to be irreverent, to rely on them' selves, and not to call on God for help. They are like the men alio build the Tower of BabeL They rely on their own Ingenuity and the wonders of steam and electricity rather than divine .power. For time and money they are tempted, to set at naught the laws ot God and nature, and are brought to their senses only by some great disaster such as that of the Titanic" The class was prepared for confirms' tlon by Rev. A. S. Johns, rector of the church, and Rev. Robert U. Brooking. A vested choir, under the direction of W. Arthur Storm, rendered special music during the evening. Following the serv ices, the bishop held a private confer ence with the newly elected vestry con cerning parish affairs. The vestry Is com' posed ot Lewis Taylor, registrar: John C Schroeder. treasurer: James Berry, RoIIa P. Currle, Charles Haydn. John L. Johns, N. T. Hynson. Jr.. and John Petar.

Largest 'KoraiHg' CirculatitoL PROBE OF CHARGE OF FALSE REPORTS InVMtifaton Meet with feat little Success ia the Pint Bay's Work. Hew York, .April 17. Investigation of charges that the news of the sicking; of the Titanic was known In this city within four hours after th liner went down, but was withheld, was begun to-day. Bow ever, those seeking Information met with but slight success. A report that the Western Union Tele graph Company sent out word at noon on Monday that the Tltanle had gone down was denied by a prominent official of the company. He said! "That report Is absurd. I received every bulletin and I did not know of the sinking of the Titanic until between S and 7 o'clock Monday evening. When I first got word that the Titanic was In trouble T Immediately wired to our cable ship. The Minis, ordering her captain to steam in the direction of the Titanic- r did not think her wireless powerful enough to carry to shore and it was my Idea that the Mlnla could pick up the messages and relay them. "The captain of the Minis, sent word that he was both Ice bound and short of coal and could not proceed very far. At 4 o'clock Monday afternoon the captain wired me that he had heard that the Ti tanic had gone down. He said this re port was only rumor and a short time afterward flashed me additional word that his latest advices were that the Titanic was In good shape and that she was being convoyed to Halifax. Then be tween S and 7 o'clock In the evening came the word that the Titsnlc foundered. No other messages were received by the Western 'Union. As soon aa we got the messages we sent them to the White Star Line." The name of J. P. Morgan Jr.. figured prominently In the many rumors afloat here to-night to the effect that the of ficials of the White Star Line knew that the Titanic had sunk eight hours before It was made public by Vice President Franklin, ot the steamship company. This has been strenuously denied by Mr. Franklin and other officials of the line, but. notwithstanding these denials, the rumor will not down. It was decided here to-night by an of ficial of the Cunard Line, owners ot the steamship Carpathla, that news of the Titanic' sinking had been received by the White Star Line officials In New York before 10 o'clock Monday morning. This official, who charged the White Star officials with suppressing the sink ing ot the Titanic Is Thomas J. Stead. In an Interview he said: m Tuesday morning a personal friend of mine came Into the Cunard offices seeking Information about th Titanic disaster. In talking with xne he said: 'Didn't you people know of this yes terday J I told him that we did not. and then he said: 1 knew at 10 o'clock: Mr. Stead denied that Mr. Morgan was the personal friend he referred to.
