Passengers and Grew of Doom

Norfolk, Va.. Oct, 21. With the fire In
her hold apparently gaining and with
passengers and crew safely on.board
the revenue-cutter Seminole, the Mer
chants and Miners steamer Berkshire, at
anchor In Lookout Cove, near Capt
Lookout. N. C' Is almost abandoned to
night. The Are which was discovered late
Saturday night suddenly gained head
way this afternoon and there was an
explosion that shook the steamer and
badly frightened the twenty-one pas
sengers, who ran from the saloon almost
panic stricken.
Following the "explosion, which- Is. sup
posed to have been caused by .barrels
of turpentine.. Capt. Hart, commanding
the," Berkshire, told the passtngers to
prepare 'to leavefle ship. The revenue
cutter. Seminole, lying near by. signaled
that she would lower lifeboats and help
take off, the passengers. The life-savers
of Capt Lookout station, who since Sun
day have helped the crew of the Berk
shire to fight the flames, were also told
to follow the passengers, and lastly the
crew of the steamer, thoroughly exhaust
ed, were ordered totake to the boats.
The rescue was made under favorable
weather conditions, and .was at times
Members of the crew of the Berkshire
and the life-savers plainly showed that
they were nearly exhausted. Several of
them' had burned hands, and they could
hardly make their way to the gang
plank. Seven Women Tnken On.
While a portion of the crew of the
Seminoie.was helping to take off the pas
sengers and crew from the Berkshire
others were keeping five streams directed
on the fire in the hold of the Berkshire.
There are seven women among the
twenty-one passengers taken from the
Berkshire, and all of them are anxious
to get on shore again. Several of them
refused the offers of the company to
transfer'them to another steamer. They
want to land at the nearest place and
tome to Norfolk by rail.
The Seminole will stand by the burning
ship as long as there is an chance of
saving her. The passengers, it Is vsald.
will be transferred to either the steamer
Cretan or the Frederick, of the Mer
chants' and Miners IJne. both of which
are now-, en route'to the assistance of
the Berkshire, The women passengers
sav the-. will not continue the voyage
by .water, and if they must will risk- be

boat by life-savers rather than spend
two more nights on a steamer at sea.
The damage done by the explosion on
the Berkshire this afternoon cannot be
learned. Officials of the line here pro
fessed to know 'nothing of the condition
of the ship.

Beverly', .Mass., Oct. 21. President

an extra session of Congress should be
called in March to change, the tariff
from a protective to a revenue basis.
Such , achange he says, could not be
effected without a' period of readjust'
ment, the wiping out of' numerous In
dustries" -which prosper . because, they
are protected. and which " pay good
wages to-thousands of employes. .
"Even were,lt admitted, and I'd' not
admit It." says the President, '"that
ultimately this readjustment. -would be
successful, and that our present- pro
tected and 'prosperous Industries could
be replaced by others which -would
thrive without' protection, what. of. the
transition period?"' . .
He points out that this period would
mean that the wage earner mlgh be
thrown out of employment for a Tear

That Washington should have women
policemen, whose duty' It should be, to
protect young girls, was "the recommenda
tion of Rev. Dr. Abram Simon at -the

night. There was a large audience, in

singularly enough we fall to acknowU

Influence outside of the home. Funds;
mentally, the .real problem of our. civ
ilization Is the social evil; it Is the great
crime of the age, the worst blot on our
escutcheon, the curse of the country.
Women can aid in stamping It 'but as
man never can. In the first place. If.
gives the protective Instinct of woman a
chance to manifest Itsylf. In the second
place women acting as duxi ui uw
law., can accomplish things toward the
suppression of this evil that men cannot
even attempt,
"Suppose we send them, garbed l no
uniform, up and down t'ennayivanta
Avenue and V Street and. other thor
oughfares of our city that may need
patrolling, t We would find that such a
force would be a mighty Influence In
protecting our women,. In suppressing
unnecessary flirtation, in stopping tne
joy-rides on which young girls bid good-
bv to their morality, and In preserving
our working 'girls from harm while on
their way to and from work. In addi
tion, these women police officers would
safeguard the women In parks and de
pots, and on the wharves, and would
exercise a censorship over our press and
our movlng-plcture shows."

The proposed merger ot various public

he declared, "at least one-half the cap

pre-conventlon campaign, swell

to $835,000.
CoU Roosevelt was planning to
capture the Republican Presiden

tune Ryan qualified as the champion
giver of recent years In the way of
political contributions, being generally
conceded the title after telling the com
mittee that he gave $150,000 to the Parker
campaign fund In 1904.
Then. lest the Interest lag in the clos

offered testimony strongly Indicating
that Col. Roosevelt not only had de
cided to enter the lists against Presi
dent Taft some time in January, but,
with William Ward, of New. York; was
running out his financial organization
by States before the first of February.

more excitement than the committee has

' While It had been his Intention to re
sign from the government service, dur
ing his stay In the L'nlted States, he had
taken no steps toward that end.
While In Washington yesterday he
found that .his "resignation" bad been
accepted. The only explanation was that
there had been a "change in system,
which did. away with his position as vice
consul. Mr. Johnson, however, believes
there Is something more back of the ac
tion than a mere "change in system."
Discussing the matter, he said:
Mv Intention was to sendn my resig

States, but yesterday 1 was informed I
had resigned. My reason for planning
to resign at this time was because I con
