'What Will It Cost to Have
MESSAGE TO SKIPPER
Government to Find Out If Re
ported "Haggling" Led to Pa
cific Coast Disaster.
SAN FRANCISCO, July 9. The loss
of fourteen lives on the steamer Santa
Rosa because her owners are alleged to
have let pass a day of calm weather
while they haggled over the cost of
saving a ship's company of more than
200, Is one of the charges that the own
ers, the Pacific Coast Steamship Com
pany, will be called upon to answer by
the United States Government, which
has ordered an investigation.
The Santa Rosa struck In fair weather
i o'clock Friday morning, and within a
few hours her wireless apparatus had
summoned three vessels, which stood
by In the easy sea, ready and willing
to" take them off. And while the pas
sengers pleaded that they be taken
off or sent ashore In the small boats,
the officials of the Pacific Coast Steam
ship Company, it is charged, were dick
ering on the price a head tnnt would
be the cost of saving passengers and
Alleged Haggling Begun.
The Centralla was the nearest of the
vessels, and Captain Farla, of the Santa
Rosa, had Interchanged messages with
the ship about the removal of passen
gers and crew. The company's offices
to San Francisco had been so notified.
And then across the waters the wire
lees Is said to nave brought the mes
sage of creed:
"Ask the captain of the Centralla
What It will cost to have the passen
gers taken off," Is the alleged message.
And the captain of the Centralla Is
said to have iol-i the " captain of the
Santa Rosa that It would cost Just what
the Pacific Coast Steamship Company
thought It was worth.
The alleged haggling cost fourteen
Jives, It is estimated, and rosIbly more.
Th sea was calm ar.d the weather
clear when the negotiations were begun,
but during the hours the Pacific Coast
Steamship Company Is said to have
been trjing to mike up its. commercial
mind, the fickle sea had made up its
When the Centralla finally was asked
to take the passengers off, the sea was
running too heavily for her to stand
close enough in to make a quick trans
far. Life Boats Launched.
When it was seen the sea was rising
several life boats were launched. One
containing fourteen passengers, many
of them women, capsized. Officials of
the company insist all were rescued,
but those who remained on board the
Santa Rosa insist thev were drowned.
A little raft with an equal number of
people aboard capsized.
Three members of the crew were or
dered to take a llf line ashore. They
had not rowed a hundred yards from
thp vessel when a huge comber upspt
their boat and they were drowned bo
fore the eves of the horrified passengers
A life saving rrew finally succeeded In
getting a line to the vessel and the re
maining 150 passengers were brought
through the raging surf to the beach
more dead than alive.

Mrs. Edna Seamark. 1249 Ninth
street, will hop on her bicycle In a day

If she had not been run over by an
automobile the other day while out
bicycling. But she will keep a keen
eye out for automobiles.
Just why Mrs Seamark did not have
a few ribs crushed in when the auto

Company official, passed over her
body Is beyond explanation. Men and
women have been killed even when

Mrs. Seamark is now as well as

At Lyceum theater
For the comfort of the burlesque pat
rons of the city many changes will be
made in the New Lyceum Theater be
fore the coming season opens. A. C.
Mayer, who has been for years con
nected with theatrical Interests in
Washington and nearby cities, and who
built the Casino Theater, at Seventh
and F streets northwest, has been em
ployed to take active management of
the playhouse commonly known as
"Kernan'h ' Mr. Mayer will see each
production prior to its appearance In
Washington, thus assuring Its suita
bility to the theatergoers of this city.
Eugene Kernan, for many jears man
ager of the house which bears his "name,
will not sever his connection with the
house, but will act in an advisory ca
pacity. Mr. Mayer, who owns an interest In
the Casino, recently resigned the active
management of that house, although he
will continue to maintain his business
holdings Besides his share in the suc
cess of the Casino he has builded sev
eral 5-cent theaters In Washington,
among them Dreamland. For several
seasons past he has presented Sunday

Solder From Tin Can
Poisons Teeth and Jaw
WILKESBARRE. Pa., July 9. Drum
Helser, of this city, has supplied the
dental experts of this section of the
State with a peculiar case, the first of
the kind they have ever known. It is
a rotting of the left side of the under
jaw, due to lead poisoning, caused by
a small piece of solder from canned
vegetables lodging in the cavity left by
an extracted tooth. Heiser was eating
corn several weeks ago, when the
polder, he believes, dropped Into the
cavity, where it remained unnoticed.
A bhort time ago all the lower teeth
on the left side of the jaw became
loose and dropped out, and then the
poisoning attacked the jawbone itself.
This week the unfortunate man was
examined by a number of specialists,
an operation was performed, which, it Is
expected, will relieve him, and photo
graphs taken of the affected section,
and these will be used by lecturers on
dental diseases, a number of whom
were present when the operation was

New Potato Bug Pesters
WASHINGTON, Pa., July -Farmers
of this section are greatly alarmed
by the appearance of a new pest, the
gray potato bug, -which is threatening
devastation to not only potatoes, but
other crops already endangered by the
long and excessive hot spell.
This bug, which differs from the old
time black potato bug, and Is believed
to be the beetle of the potato-stock
weevil, travels in creat droves, settllnc
down on a potato patch and ruining It
In a remarkable short time. Paris green
solutions have been tried, and while
they seem to drive the bugs away tem-porarilyr-they
are, apparently, nonfatal

Famous Higbee Collection
of Crowns Will Be on Ex
The crowns worn by the rulers of the
great nations of the world, exactly re
produced as to cutting of Jewels, set
tings, and colorings, will be on view
in Washington tomorrow. The man
agement of the Palais Royal, Eleventh
and G streets northwest, has obtained
the famous Frank D. Higbee collec
tion that was prepared for the St. Louis
Mr. Higbee conceived the Idea of
gathering the collection of reproduc
tions of royal crowns as a means of ed
ucation for the general public. His first
thought was that he could readily get
the necessary data for the making of
the diadems from books in any of the
large libraries of the United States.
But he found that not even In Eng
land or France could books be found
that could serve as a guide to the Jew
elers of Paris In making working mod
Three Years of Work.
From royal court to royal court of Eu
rope Mr. Higbee went, securing per
mission to view and copy the crowns
of the nations. After three years of
effort the collection was complete, as
It will be shown at the Palais Royal,
beginning -with tomorrow.
The recent crowning of King George
In England has aroused interest in the
subject of crowns, so that the coming
of the Higbee collection now is espe
The collection Includes an exact re
production of the crown that was
placed on the head of King George In
Westminster Abbey The orb, too, sym
bol of his political power, is shown
among the Higbee reproductions
The crown of the German empire, call
ed one or the most beautiful and costly
In the world, will form one of the chief
features of the exhibition
Pope's Tiara to Be Seen.
The tiara and scepter of the Pope claim
a large share of Interest The Iron
Crown of Lombardy, of rare old work
manship, and first used in 531 A D.,
with the crowns of Sweden and Norway
and of Denmark all find places In the
collection. It has been said of the
Higbee exhibit that the wearers of the
originals could not -distinguish between
them and the copies at a short distance.
And the "crown" that Theodore
Roosevelt wore, a plain silk hat, when
he ascended to the offfco of highest
honor within the gift of any people, is
shown in contrast to the "pomp and
pageantry of kings "
The eighteen reproductions of the
crowns will be exhibited in the show-
window of the Palais Royal, beginning

"The Barrier" to Be Pre
sented, With George W.
Barbier in Leading Role.
The story of "The Barrier," which will
J be produced at the Columbia Theater
tomorrow night, and for the remamaer
of the week, by the Columbia Players,
is described as being big. buoyant,
bracing, strong, rugged, irresistible Just
what a story of Alaska, the land of the
last frontier, should be. Washlngtonians
are not unfamiliar with it either in the
form of the thrilling narrative which

I the pen of that master of Western char-
acter study. Rex Beach, or the more
i thrilling dramatic version, arranged by
Eugene W. Presbrey.
"The Barrier" is the story of a young
army officer suddenly transferred from
the South to the far North. ' The ven
turous hero goes into the Yukon country
to preserve order. The picture of the
gold fields Is the background, but it is
the love pf the soldier for the hair
blood heroine that lends power to the
combination of romance and adventure.
Interest centers in the man who is to
play the rough, but big-hearted, trader.
John Gale. For this, George W. Bar

finished and capable actor, who, both
physically and by reason of artistic

At Columbia Theater
Those who were fortunate enough to
witness the wonderful pictures of the
coronation of King George and Queen
Mary at the Columbia Theater last
Sunday will be delighted to learn that
with the best of those pictures as a
nucleus, the International Amusement
Company will this evening present for
the first time In this country the pic
tures of the magnificent display Incident
to the second day of the festivities,
with the greatest of all of the proces
sions, including thousands upon thou
sands of soldiers onffoot, in cavalry bri
gades, full batteries of artillery, ma
rines, sailors, and the great assemblage
of colonial regiments In all the glory of
their trappings. These pictures have
Just arrived In this country, and word
comes from New York, where they were
privately reviewed, that they far excel
the first consignment. All sound ac
companiments are furnished, materially
adding to the realism.
With the exception of the requested
repetition of the best of last week's
coronation pictures, everything this
evening will be new, the program in
cluding moving pictures of the great
English fox hunt, scenes in Switzer
land, Slam, the Hawaiian islands, Paris,
and elsewhere, together wlh a liberal

Take Off the Pat
Where It Shows
Most women suffer much humiliation
and inconvenience, especially during the
hot summer months, because of great
quantities of fat, so located that, no
matter how they dress, everybody sees
that they are abnormal. This is the sea
son and the day of the slender figure,
and fat women are simply not tolerated
either in business or social affairs.
Women may not know it, but men when
they see a fat woman pass them on tho
street make all manner of sympathetic
remarks about her. They do not mean
to be unkind or to seem unmanly, but
it Is natural for a man to dislike fat
on a woman. Where fat shows the most
there is where it must be removed, and
as quickly as possible. Hot weather
dresses seem to be made for Ihe fat
woman's misery and the slender wom
an's delight. They expose all the
charms of woman and her ugliness as
well. Exercise and diet will not remove
fat. This has been proved. Tho fa
mous Marmola prescription which has
met with such phenpmenal success and
has so many of our society women as
its sponsors, is now being sold In tablet
form to meet the demand of the public
for this style of treatment. These lit
tle tablets go Into your system Just like
food. They stop the stomach and di
gestive apparatus from producing fat
and reduce the fat upon the bodv at th
rate of from 12 to 15 ounces a day. They
are narmiess in noi as wen as cool
weather and can be carried In your
purse and taken even after you have
indulged In a hearty meal away from
home. They are sold at all drug stores
