LEAPS FROM SHIP TOO LATE Steamer Ohio, for Alaska. Goes to the Bottom. HIS LAST WORDS. "GOOD-BYE" It Was His Farewell to Life?Five Other Men Were Also Drowned. SEATTLE, August 'JR.?Tlie wireless telegraph call, "C. Q. D." ("Hurry help to us or we perish"), sounded early yes | terday morning from the Alaska Steam ship Company's steamer Ohio. Proceed-1 lng from this city to Yaldez. Alaska, the | Ohio struck the rocks off Steep point, Alaska. 320 miles from here, and soon foundered. Six men were drowned. All of her 128 passengers except two] were saved by the heroism df her wire less telegraph operator, George E. Eccles | of Winnipeg; of her captain, John John son, and of all her crew. Eccles stuck to his key, flashing the call for help to his fellows on shore at ^Ketchikan, Alaska. Eccles' last words were: "Captain and crew going off in the last ! boat; waiting for me. Good-bye." It was his good-bye to life. The Ohio was propped on the reef for thirty min i utes?long enough to get the passengers off. Scarcely were they in the boats when she slid into deep water and sank. Eccles was lost with her. So were her purser, F. J. Stevens of Seattle; the quartermaster, a steerage passenger and I a soldier, whose names are not known, [ and Snow, the steamer's pilot. No more tragic tale was ever told than that which Wireless Operator Booth, at , Ketchikan, dispatched to his employers | of the I'nlted Wireless Company In New York last evening. "Help" Cry Heard. Said Booth in his report: "About 1 a.m. I was sitting with my I receivers clapped to my ears, having just j finished working with Operator Eccles on board the Ohio, when I was startled by hearing him call 'C. Q. D.. C. Q. D.' I immediately answered, and he sent the following message: 'Ohio struck a rock; steamer sinking; send aid immediately or everybody will be lost." "The steamships Humboldt and Rupert of the McKenzie Brothers Steamship Company happened to be near at the time, and they both called the Ohio, ask ing for her latitude. Eccles gave it im mediately, and the Rupert flashed back that they would change their course and stand by the Ohio as soon as possible, i "In the meantime Eccles sent another message, saying: 'Ohio s;nking fast?can-I not hold out. Passengers being taken off in small boats. Captain and crew will stick to- the last.' Knew He Had Gone Down. "The Humboldt and Rupert both re | piled that they were headed for the Ohio and would pick the passengers up. Then ; came the final message from the stricken vessel. It was never finished. " 'Passengers all off and adrift in small boats," it said. 'Captain and crew going off in the last boat; waiting for me now? good-bye.' "I was unable to get him again," con cluded Booth, "and I knew he had gone down with his ship." Accordlpgj to a wireless message re ceived last night Eccles and the purser of the wrecked steamer wen. below to search for the quartermaster and a steer age passenger. Unable to find them he returned to his station and began sending a message. Just before the vessel made the plunge that carried her to the bottom the op erator was seen to leap from the wire less station. He fell on his head, and his apparently lifeless body rolled into the | water and was carried down by the' whirlpool of the sinking steamer. Eccles had not expected to make ihe trip with the Ohio. The day before the steamer sailed he handed in his resigna tion, having secured a position at Susitna. As the company was short of men. he j consented to make one more trip uefore giving up his position. Among the passengers on the Ohio were M. J. Heney, the Alaska railroad con tractor, who is on the Humboldt, and Clarence Cunningham, the Alaska coal land locator, who claims Alaska coal mines valued at an enormous sum. and whose title is being investigated by Presi dent Taft. The twenty rescued passengers on the Iiumboliit were landed ai Ketchikan at t> o'clock tonight; the Rupert is taking most of the others rescued to Vancouver. Other Ships Assist. Answering the "C Q D" otner ships assisted In the rescue. Some of the pas sengers were taken aboard the fishing boat Kingfisher to Ewanson bay. The Dolphin, another Alaskan Steamship | Company boat, which left Seattle Wed nesday night, and due at Ketchikan to night, was ordered by wireless to stand i by in Swanson bay and give assistance. The rocks on which the Ohio struck shelve off steeply into very deep water. Capt. Johnson was regarded as one of j the most skillful navigators on the Pacific coast. The steamer was valued at $300,000 and was insured for $220,000; the cargo Is a total loss save for what ever insurance may be on It. The Ohio, of 400 tons, was well known is eastern waters and used to cross the Atlantic. She and her sister ships, the Pennsyl vania, Indiana and Illinois, were sold by the international Navigation Company to the Alaskan steamship line. Washington Man Rescued. Gen. S. S. Burdett of this city, senior member of the law firm of Burdett. Thompson & Law, was among the pas sengers on board tne Ohio. Word has been received at his office in the Ouray building that Gen. Burdett was taken off the sinking boat In safety. The general is the local attorney for the Alaska Steamboat Company, to which the Ohio belonged. His home Is in Glencarlyn, Va. TROPICAL FARM PRODUCTS. Panama Canal Zone to Have Agri cultural Experiment Station. Before the coming of winter the Depart ment of Agriculture intends to establish an experiment station In the Panama Canal Zone with a view to making the ten-mile strip as productive and as near self-supporting as possible. Representa tives from the soil survey and the bureau of plant industry will be sent to the zone In October, and their report will show how much of the work of the department that has been done In other tropical regions is available for the work along the canal. There have been experiment stations for some time in Hawaii, the Philippines and Porto Rico, and much of the data accumulated in these places will apply equally well to the canal strip. There will be some problems of soil and climate that will have to be worked out, espe cially along the canal. The rainy season there is more excessive than has been dealt with In any other region, and there will be some tropical products that have be?n found by the agricultural explorers that will be adaptable to the zone that have not been available elsewhere. The strip Is. roughly, ten miles wide and forty miles long, and while much of it is occupied by the canal works and will have to remain under the control of the government, there Is room also for a large number of farms and settlers, and the constantly Increasing traffic through the canal will form an ever-widening market for tropical farm products. DIVISION MARKERS PUT UP TWENTY-NINE ERECTED ON THE GETTYSBURG FIELD. Report of the Commission?More Visitors to Historic Spot Than Ever Before. . _ 9 "It having been proposed to establish a national roadway from Washington city to the Gettysburg National Mili tary Park, to be known as the 'Lincoln Memorial way,' a prospect of additional access and interest is thereby opened which will probably materialize in the near future." This statement is made in the latest annual report of the commissioners of the Gettysburg Park to the Secretary of War. Preserving the Landmarks. It has been the aim of the commis sion to preserve the landmarks and appearance of the field as it was dur ing the war, and with that purpose in view trees have been replanted In po sitions where th^y existed at that! time, undergrowth has been cut out and the lines generally defined by his torical tablets. The bronze itinerary tablets have now been set up and com pleted. A lurge number of iron tab lets are distributed over the battlefield and are kept in repair by repainting. The guns at positions representing bat teries on the artillery line are also kept in repair. No new gun carriages have been placed since the last report. Division Markers Erected. The erection of forty-five monuments to the services nf the regulars ?>f the I'nited States Army in the Gettysburg campaign has been completed. During the fiscal year a contract was made for thirty granite markers, ten to be erected to the divisions of the Army of Northern Virginia and twenty to the divisions of the Army of the Po tomac, on the Gettysburg battlefield. These markers have been erected, ex cept the one to Kilputrick's cavalry di-! vision, the site for which has been se-1 lected, and the marker will be put in place in a short time. Bronze tablets for the Confederate markers have been mounted upon the granite, which is seven feet high, fifty inches wide and twenty-four inches thick; also a plate of bronze with the letters "C. S. A." The inscriptions for the Union tablets have not yet been caj?t, but the corps badge of bronze has been placed on j each. The number of visitors to the field has been greatly In excess of that of previous years, and their conduct, the report says, has been orderly and ex emplary. I UPTON AFTER AMERICAN CUP STILL EXPECTS TO HAVE YACHT BUILT TO WIN. Not Discouraged by Failures. Wants Ireland to Have Blue Ribbon of the Sea. | BOSTON. Mass., August 27.?Sir Thomas I.lpton Is still set upon the winning of the America's cup, according to an interview had with him while abroad recently by former Mayor John F. Fitzgerald, who was Sir Thomas' guest. The Republic, Mr. Fitzgerald's paper, will publish tomorrow the fol lowing interview with the yachtsman: "I am just as anxious and as deter mined to continue my efforts toward! winning the America's cup as I was the day Shamrock I was launched. Re peated failure has only tended to fix more firmly ray resolution to give to Ireland the honor of capturing the trophy which stands for the blue rib bon of the sea. My former efforts have taught me that to succeed I must build ! a boat capable of beating the American defender, despite the enormous handi cap of the rules governing the deed of gift under which the New York Yacht Club holds the cup. I have no com-, plaint to make because of my failures. I was beaten fairly and squarely by . the finest sportsmen in the world, but ! I do think that in the interest of true sport the rule should be modified. Key to the Situation. "I would challenge again tomorrow were the race to be governed by the regular rules of the New York Yacht | Club or of any recognized club In the ! world. The present rules provide that the length of the competing yachts, in ! the case of single-masted vessels, must ; be between sixty-five and ninety feet, i The challenger must proceed under sail to the place where the contest is to take place on its own bottom. This t latter clause is the key to the situa- ; tion. The rule is a special one govern ing this particular case, and makes no allowance for the enormous develop ment of the sport since it was first de vised to govern the America's cup races. "The sport has grown from contests among purely seagoing vessels into a scientific struggle between vessels iliat are nothing more or less than freaks or racing machines. Under the exist ing conditions every consideration of safety, comfort and economy is sacri ficed for the speed. The constantly in creasing peril of the Atlantic passage on one of these latter-day machines only serves to emphasize the necessity of amending the deed of gift In the in terest of true sport. There is no doubt in my mind but that Designer Watson actually worried himself to death over the dangers consequent upon the Jour neys across the Atlantic. Conditions Not Favorable. "That," said Sir Thomas, "is the situ ation from this side of the water. It is impossible to get a builder to at tempt the construction of a cup chal lenger under existing conditions. The deed of gift is not an unalterable rule; it has been changed twice during the past fifty years, and I think that the American spirit'of fair play will in the near future appreciate the manifestly prohibitory features of the rules j.3 they are now Interpreted." Sir Thomas added that Designer Fife refused to risk his reputation by at tempting to design another challenger subject to the existing rule, as he .s certain that he could not build such-a boat and feel that the lives of the men would not be Ift grave danger every minute during the trip across. AIMED AT PATENT LAWS. t i Inventors' Association Announces' Purpose of the Organization. Members of the Inventors' Protective Association, at a meeting of the organi zation last night, made It plain that their criticism and complaint, made at a pre vious session, was aimed at certain pat-? ent laws and not at the officials of the patent office. The administration of af fairs at the patent office was praised. It was said to be a case of good men having to administer bad laws. The decision was reached that three classes of persons will be admitted into the society. First, patentee^, who shall have the right to vote on any question that may arise: second, those who have applied for a patent, and who, while they I will not be given the right to vote, shall have a voice in the meeting and the right to express their opinions; and third, those who are working on some invention, I though they have not applied for a pat ent, and who shall be termed correspond ing members, having the privilege of handing in whltten opinions which shall be read at the meetings by the secretary. All patent lawyers and patent promoters will be absolutely excluded. The committee on the constitution con sists of 8amuel J. MacFarren. chairman: J. J. O'Brien, secretary: William P.

ABOLITION OF DUST CLOUDS Sprinkling Cart Effective, but Creates Another Difficulty. STOPS THE RUNNING OF CARS Connecticut Avenue Residents Com plain of Conditions Due to Work on Railway Line. When Commissioner West began to investigate complaints that dim clouds were hanging over the tracks of the Washington Railway ar.d Electric Com pany. along the route o?* the Connecti cut avenue cars front 14th street and New York avenue to Dupont Circle, and throwing a haze around that section of the Capital city, he realized that in find ing a solution he was between the deep sea and a roaring lion. The street railway company has been putting some new and heavier rails along the route of the Connecticut avenue cars, and that necessitated the tearing up of the pavement between the car tracks. Of course, tiiat work made some dust fly; but the residents along the route cor.sidererl the improvement that would ultimately come and said nothing. After the new rails were laid the workmen be yan replacing the old pavement wtth tarred blocks between the car tracks; and on top of the blocks they sprinkled a layer of sand to sift down and fill up the crevices between the blocks. Sand in Drawing Booms. But according to the complaints re ceived at the District building, the sand filled crevices in drawing rooms, dining rooms and kitchens of homes along the route, and every time a car swirled along the line persons living on one side of the street were for several minutes unable to distinguish houses on the other side of the street. And persons who waited on street corners to take cars were impelled : to rtish out to the tracks upon seeing a 1 cloud of du? moving along the railway t alls. As soon as Commissioner West heard of the dust clouds he ordered out the street sprinklers to wet down the sand. It wet the sand all right and for a little while the atmosphere was clear. But the water made the blocks in the pavement swell, and as they grew larger they began to narrow the Slot. As that grew too narrow, it began to snut off the connecting board that runs through it underneath the cars. This swelling of the blocks therefore threatened to stop traffic along the route. If the tracks were not sprinkled, there was dust; if they were sprinkled, there was danger of stopping the cars. The Commissioner was advised of this dilemma, and began to consider the pos sibilities of using some other material be sides sand to put on the block pavement, and conferred with Acting Engineer Com missioner Markham. But he found him self in another dilemma. Cement could not be used, because the jarring of the tracks as the cars run over them pre vented it from becoming hard, and thus left the blocks loose. Tar was the next suggestion, but experience showed that as soon at hot weather comes along tht; tar oozed out of the crevices between the blocks and formed a sticky layer on top of the pavement. . Capt. Markham's Suggestion. "I realize that the conditions are very annoying," said Capt. Markham. "but there is no other way in which the work can be done properly, arid as the wooden blocks cost twice as much as asphalt I am very anxious that the railroad com pany shall be given ample 'opportunity to demonstrate the value of the experiment it is making." Upon this presentation of fact? Com missioner West decided to deal with the problem through the agency of the street cleaning department by using all available sprinkling wagons that could be put into service. By the ust- of water the condi tions in the neighborhood of 14th street and New York avenue have been im proved. and this" work will be continued until all likelihood of annoyance has ceased. The matter is one to which Com missioner West has given considerable at tention, but he said today that he would, as far as possible, reduce toe cause of complaint to a minimum. It is stated by the engineer department i that the trouble would not continue more i than six or seven days, and that when the ? sand has thoroughly settled into the ! blocks the conditions will be vastly im- i proved, inasmuch as it is expected that ! the wooden pavement will reduce the noise j of the cars. The use <^f too much water ! in sprinkling only postpones the time when the work will be completed, inas-j much as the water causes the blocks to i swell, and in many cases they have to be t ela id. THIRTY GUNN-ERS INITIATED. Artillerymen Admitted to the Army ? and Navy Union. Thirty stalwart artillerymen in the service of Uncle Sam were last n'ght mustered into active membership of Ad miral David D. Porter Garrison. No. 6? Army and Navy Union, at Fort Wash ington.

The little steamboat was furnished through the courtesy of the War Depart ment. At the wharf at Fort Washington the local representatives were received by a delegation of the 43d Company. Coast Artillery Corps, and escorted to the bar racks. where a meeting place had been ar ranged. The. ceremony of making the artillerists members of the Army and Navy Union. U. S. A., was conducted by Past Garrison Commander Charles W. Blush, who was in charge of the party; Dr. Thacker E. I-.ee, past garrison commander; Lemuel Fugltt, senior vice commander of Porter Garrison, and Oliver Preston. After the bronze buttons of the Army and Navy Union and the badge of the order had been placed upon the coat lapels of the "recruits" a social session was held. There were soldier talks, recitations and other forms of amusement. An nouncement was made that another large party of Coast Artillerymen will be mustered in within the next fifteen days. BATHER'S INJURIES FATAL. Robert C. Kilpatrick Succumbs to Effects of Diving Accident. The remains. of Robert C. Kilpatrick, an employe of the navy yard, who died at the Providence Hospital yesterday from injuries leceived while diving at Colonial Beach three weeks ago, were taken to Bethlehem, Pa., today for burial Monday. .
