HEROISM OF BOTH SEXES Mrs. Straus and Mrs. Astor Com mended by Mrs. Walter If. Clark, Rescued Passenger. FYom far-off California has come an other testimonial of the calmness and bravery of Maj. Archibald Butt, the President's aid, as? the Titanic's decks were sinking: into the depths of the At lantic. The testimonial was presented to the Senate yesterday afternoon by Senator W orks of California in the form of an interview with Mrs. Walter M. Clark of Los Angeles. Cal., published in a paper in that city, telling of her rescuc. There is also high prates for Mrs. John Jacob Astor for the bravery she showed even when some of the women in the lifeboat with her became hys terical. Fall to Bealize Danger. After telling of the lack of apprehen alon of graVe danger felt among the pas sengers and then recounting the depar ture of some of the lifeboats Mrs. Clark is quoted as saying: "At the time of our leaving in the life boats the men of our party (<ven then seemed unconcerned and failed to realize the danger that the steamer was in. Mrs. Straus absolutely refused to leave her husband. Mr. Astor, just before our boat was lowered, asked permission to ac company his wife, but was refused. He made no protest whatever and retired, joining my husband, and the two of them, together with Maj. Butt and others, ren dered assistance in filling the lifeboats with passengers. "My husband seemed cool and collected all the time, and told mo that he would not leave the ship until all the women and children had been cared for. I know from the way he bade me good-bye that he felt no apprehension and fully expected to join me later. There was room for fifteen others in our boat, and these men could have been taken as weJl as not. The night was clear, although no moon was shining. The stars threw much light, which made the ocean quite plain. There was no ice to be seen any where. Bach lifeboat was equipped with lanterns, so by them we- were able to see one another, and orders were given to keep together as much as possible. We had plenty of provisions in the way of crackers and bread in the lifeboats. "As we rowed away from the ship, which was now listing pretty badly on the port side, it occurred to some of us that we should return to the steamer, as we had room aboard for fifteen more, at which proposal many of the women be came hysterical and endeavored to dis suade us from doing so, even going so far as to impede the rowers in their efforts to carry out the plan of the more deliberate and cool. There was a great deal of commotion in our boat then. Mrs. Astor's Bravery. "I cannot say too much for the bravery of Mrs. Astor in this connection. She, among others, insisted that the boat be returned to the steamer. All this time the lights on board the steamer were gleaming brilliantly, and we could see her looming up silhouetted against the dark ness. She was sinking, however, very fast, and as we approached her the Ti tanic sank, followed by two almost simul taneous explosions. There was little or no suction felt as the steamer went down, owing, perhaps, to the fact that she sank prow foremost. "We rowed about the scene of the dis aster all night and picked up eight men out of the water, two of whom subse quently died of exposure and one lost his mind. Wre had nothing in the way of stimulants with which to revive these men. but worked over them almost all night, the women taking off their coats and furs to provide warmth for them. "I am sure that we saw three or four fishing smacks in the vicinity. We knew I that they were not other lifeboats for the reason that lights could be seen high [above, as if on masts, and the Carpathia had not at that time appeared in sight. "Some of the lifeboats were picked up by the Carpathia at 4:30 in the morning following, but it was not until about 8:30 that we were rescued." MEYER COMMENDS RESCUERS. Seamen Attached to IT. S. S. Virginia Get Personal Letters. Personal letters have been sent by the Secretary of the Navy Meyer to John Owens and Ezra Budd, seamen, attached to the U. S. S. Virginia, commending them for gallantry in saving life. While their ship was coaling from lighters in Hampton roads a few days ago. a sea man named Papke fell overboard. With out waiting to remove their clothing, Owens and Budd jumped in after him. Papke could not swim, and had gone down for the second time before his rescuers reached him. They were bad ly handicapped by their heavy rubber boots, but Owens finally managed to kick his off. The men supported Papke until a boat came to their assistance. He was unconscious at the time, and the captain of the Virginia, who witnessed the res cue, reported that Papke would have lost his life but for the prompt action of his two shipmates.

II?PORTO RICO AND CITIZENSHIP. By Frederic J. Haskin. 0 SAN JUAN, Porto Rico, April 27? Porto Rico affords a delightful introduc tion to a study of the countries of ttie (Caribbean region?countries which are destined, with the completion of the Pan ama canal, to play an Important part in world politics, and whose destinies here after must be even more intimately link ed with our own than heretofore. In visiting these countries one has the op portunity to see all the gradations of American influence from the absolute in Porto Rico, through the formerly ab solute in Cuba, through the customs house control in Santo Domingo, on down to Guatemala, where it has availed the least. It makes a study of contrasts that is at once interesting and impressive. The American people ever will differ as to Just what our relations with the coun tries of the Caribbean ought to be, but there is no difference of opinion as to the great economic and social benefits that have been conferred upon the peo ple of Porto Rico by the United States. That these benefits have been widely scattered among all the people and not re stricted to the favored few of the privi leged classes is conclusively shown by a statement of conditions existing then and a resume of conditions existing now. The immense economic benefits con ferred ' upon Porto Rico become evident at the first glance at the statistics of the island. Its external commerce quadrupled in the decade between 1901 and 1911, and it is still increasing at a rapid rate. It now amounts to nearly 180,000.000 h year. Seven-eighths of this trade is with tfte United States, and in 1911 only twelvo other countries bpugbl wore ?0Qda. of tht American manufacturer than was bought by Porto Rico. * * * The expansion of internal business has kept pace. In seven years taxable v a 1 ues in Expansion of Internal the island Business Keeps Apace. ,h * lis Td from less than ninety million to more than one hundred and sixty million dol lars. In a single year the amount of the life insurance policies written in the island increased nearly 90 per cent and the fire insurance nearly 40 per cent. The story of Porto Rican agriculture Is the same story of wellnlgh unpre cedented expansion. The sugar ex ported has increased live-fold in ten years, and now approximates 350,000 tons a year. The exports of cigars in 1911 were fourteen times greater than in 1901. But the story of Porto Rican prosperity is not to be told entirely in terms of dol lars and cents. Under the Spanish re gime the masses of the people were il literate. When the island was taken over there was but one schoolhouse in all its borders that had been built for school purposes. The number of chil dren enrolled in the schools was only twenty-five thousand. Today six times as many children are enrolled, while the ratio of increase in dally attendance is even larger. A thorough system of ed ucation, embracing elementary, hi?h school and university training, has been instituted and the rising generation will not suffer the blight of illiteracy. After all the real test qf what Amer ica, has dons & Porto Rico l* jUie 1 . V t answer to the question: "How has it af fected the masses of the people?" In 1S97 the Porto Rlcans, still under Spanish dominion, had a centennial celebration commemorating the retirement of the English from the island. A prize was offered for the best account of existing conditions in the island, the prize to be awarded by the h'gh authorities of the colony. Many articles were submitted, but the award went to one in which, after picturing the progress of the cen tury then ending, the writer deeclared: * * * "Only the laborer, the son of our fields, one of the most unfortunate beings in the world, Comparison of Laborers with the pai. Eloquent of Progress, baii^'foot, the fleshless body, the ragged clothing and the feverish glance, strolls indif ferently, with the darkness of ignorance in his eyes. In the market he finds for food only the rotten salted fish or meat, codfish covered with gangrenlsh splotches, and Indian rice; and he that harvests the best coffee in the world, who aids in gathering into the granary the sweet est grain in nature, and drives to pasture the beautiful young meat animals cannot carry to his lips a single slice of flesh, because the municipal exactions place it beyond his means, almost doubling the price of the infected codfish; coffee be comes to him an article of luxu^ because of its high price, and he can use only sugar loaded with molasses and impuri ties." When one compares the laboring man of Porto Rico today with the picture drawn fifteen years ago, it is a compari son more eloquent of achievement than perhaps anything else in the island. Then the population was only 800,000; it has since increased by one-half. At that time the masses were almost entirely bare footed and infected with the hookworm disease. When the United States took over the island seven of every nine of the people never knew what it was to wear shoes; today the barefooted people are exceptional?perhaps only the tenth per son you meet will be without shoe*. When the essayist wrote of the pallid face4 the bare loet, the fleshless body and the feverish glance he told the story of the ravages of the hookworm disease. Since the American occupation more than 300,000 cases of hookworm disease have been treated, and the sufferers freed from a disease which made of life a living death. The death rate of the island has been cut down from forty per thousand in 15*>1 to twenty-two per thousand in 1911. In other words, there would have been more than 20,000 additional deaths in Porto Rico last year had the death rate of 1001 continued to this time. * * * Add to all these things a 300 per cent Increase in the wages of the average laborer, a sys Feel They Are Hen tem of laws Without a Country. terests of the masses, a tariff policy which gradually is shifting the burdens of taxation from the shoulders of those who are least able to bear them to the backs of those who can best carry them, and you have a picture filled with hope and encouragement, as well as full of past achievements. But still the Porto Rlcans are not satis fied. *?hey feel that they are men with out a country. They no longer are citi zens of ?\>ain, for they have given fealty to the United States. On the other hand, they are not yet citizens of the United States, for Congress has refused to give them that status. A Porto Rican has no sovereign. When abroad he is without protection. He is a citizen of no repub lic, a subject of no monarch. All of the American officials who have had to do with the insular government advocate citizenship. They point out that the present condition of the inhabitants is absurd, that we took their Spanish na tionality away and have given them no political standing in return. A bill is pending in Congress providing that Porto Ricans shall be made citizens of the United States, and that only those who prefer to retain their present po litical status shall not be embraced in the operation of the blanket citizenship law. The measure provides that every person in the islands shall become a citizen of the United States, except such as shall f'e a certificate of their prefer ence for retaining their present status. * * * The proposed lav baa already, passed, the House. It is now pending in the # Senate. Sena Hold Citizenship Does tor Root, for Not Mean Statehood. J^ly0f staS. has announced his opposition to the grant of citizenship, upon the ground that citi zenship ultimately will mean statehood, and that statehood ultimately might give a sort of balance of power in our govern mental affairs to the people who now compose the population of our extra continental territory. He is said to look far into the future, and to believe that he sees other situations which might pos sibly arise which would result in the Porto Rican case being made a prece dent, the end of all of which might be embarrassing to the American people. On the other hand, those who advocate citizenship declare that it does not at all follow that citizenship means state hood. It is generally believed by those acquainted with the situation that If Con gress confers citizenship on the Porto Ricans they will be pleased with the confidence thus manifested in them and will settle down to make the coming ton years even a brighter decade than the ten years gone by. China Thanks United States. A letter from the Chinese minister to the United States, expressing the thanks of his government for the resolution passed by Congress congratulating the people of China on the establishment of a republic, has been presented to the Sen ate by Vice President Sherman.
