3 MORGUE SHIP IS DELAYED DUE AT HALIFAX TOMORROW White Star Line Takes Ex tra Precautions to Pre vent Panic. HALIFAX, N. 8., April 29.-The Mack-ey-Bennett, with the Titanic victims on board, may not reach hero until 0 o'clock Tuesday morning. Captain Lrd ner today sent a wireless dispatch to the Whlto Star agent here announcing that he Is belntr delayed by bad weather. A black-bordered, printed announce mertt was Issued by tho Whdlte Star uno Dearing grim instructions outlining tho red tapo. that would be necossarv to Identify bodies. i A black-clad, tremulous, forengn-looking girl of little more than twenty, with tho gruesome bulletin In her hand, pleaded nnxlously with tho White Star ofneors for Information as to when the Mackay Bennett would dock. The eternal ques tion In Halifax today was, "When will Bhe be In?" Tho black-clad girl was a Titanic sur vivor, the maid of Scnora Victor Pon asco. Senora Penasco was lying pros trated with grief at tho Plaza Hotel, In New York, and tho little maid, shouldering the grief of her mistress, had come to Halifax to aearch among the unidentified bodies for that of Senor Penasco, brother-in-law of Premier Ca nalejas, of Spain, who was left on tho sinking Titanic. Hundred Coffins. Captain Lardner had but 100 coffins aboard the vessel, and he was carrying the remainder of his death cargo packed , In Ice and wrapped In burlap and can vas. These bodies as soon as they reach the dock tho authorities planned to place In coffins. They were then to be' hurried Into the city, tho Identified dead to a local undertaker and the un identified dead to a local skating rink, 'temporarily transformed Into a morgue. There they wero to be embalmed, placed In caskets, and exposed to view. Here Is where- the authorities feared scenes of horror when grlef-strlcken relatives lifted tho linen veils that hid distorted faces In the search for the iamlllar reatures. The utmost pre cautions to prevent panto or disorder ,had been takon, but the news from the wackey-Bennett that most of tho (bodies had been Identified obviated to a great extent tho probability of tho terrible scenes which the authorities contemplated. Lawyers There. Then, again, but fow of the anxious watchers were close relatives of tho dead they come to seek Many of them were lawyers or undertakers authorized to take charge by stricken men and women too wrought up with grief to take up personally the gruesome task. It was expected that the efforts of the White Star line and the authorities to prevent the relatives and friends from crowding to the dock would be suc cessful. They urged that the watchers wait until the bodies had been pre pared for view at the undertaking rooms and the morgue, hoping In this way to prevent the scenes of horror expected at the dock If tho watchera entered the pier. Allan Liner Helps Morgue Boat in Handling of Bodies ST. JOHN, New Brunswick, April 29. Gruesome aid to tho Mackay Bennett, bound for Halifax with the death cargo of the Titanic disaster was glvyi by tho Allan liner Sardin ian, docked at St. Johns, according to her captain. The Sardinian receiv ed a wireless message from the Mock-ey-Bennett at 4:10 a. m., April 23. She was then near the scene of the Tltanlc's death struggle. The mes sage read: "Recovering bodies of the Titanic, could you, In passing, let us have all tho canvas and burlap that you can spare?" At 7 o'clock the Sardinian hailed the Mackay-Bennett and sent aboard a boat load of canvass and burlap to wrap the Ice packed bodies that crowded the cable ship. Captain Mc Klllop of the Sardinian said the Mack-ay-Uennett Informed him there were then 200 bodies aboard. "We saw a lot of wreckage In that neighborhood," said the captain, "such as cabinet furniture, chairs, desks, ramp stools and life preservers. Wo passed close to two bodies but did not try to recover them as the Macky Bennett was close by. One was appar ently that of a woman wearing seal skin coat, but I could not tell what the other was. There was one on either side of us, thirty or forty yards away." The Sardinian, passing through the Ice field, also spoke the Mlnla. bound to re lieve the Mackay-Bennett on her quest. NEW YOKK, April 29. The White Sta line announced today that it had conjfrmed th fact that the Ky of Fred Sutton was on hoard the Mackay Bennett. It also stated that the name "W. Hanton," originally sent out, had been Identified as that of W. HInton, one of the Tltanlc's firemen. (Joseph Evans, Colored, Wins Honor at College Joseph H. B.

With Btlft fights certain on a half doz en different legislative features, the post office appropriation bill Is nearlng a vote In tho House. Tho measure con tains, perhaps, more legislation than was ever before carried In an appro priation budget, and tho House has adopted a special rule, making such legislation "In order," that hero may be a vote on parcels post and other In novations In tho postal service. It Is hoped to conclude the debate on the bill by tho end of the current week. A roll call vote probably will be de manded on the legislative clauses of the bill, which, except for the special nils, would have been subject to points of order. The following Important legislative "riders" are carried in tho bill: Provision for the establishment of a parcel post, and In addition an experi mental parcels post on strictly rural routes. Tho creation of a commission to make a two years' study of the advisability of an unlimited parcels post, with uni form rates or "tone" system rates. The temoval of the "gag" from the mouths of postal clerks, thereby re voking the Executive order which for bids them to petition Congress for re dress of grievances or to affiliate with labor unions. The Shackelford good roads bill. This "rider" provides a unique scheme for Federal aid to good roads by requiring the Federal Government to pay a gradu ated toll for the use of all State and county highways over which the rural malls are carried. The Goeko bill, another Important "rider," which provides for the con demnation of the express companies by the Government and the establishment, under the Postofflce Department, of an express post. The Barnhart amendment, requiring all newspapers to print conspicuously each day the names of the owners, stockholders, and directors of the pub lication. A provision which requires that after July 1, 1917, none except Bteel cars shall be used In the railway mall service. It Is exnected that parcels post will huve comparatively 7laln Hilling In the House. consMorlnix the fact that there nus been more or less agitation In its favor for years. Other legislative features of th" nos'offtce bill will be hard fought Tho special rule provides inorolv for their consirtoratlon. and the adopiton of the ruls does not forecast the llnnl approval of some of tho radical propositions contained In th3 appro pilutlon measure. jf Jk'5 ''..tiHvtfaMaiaaaaaaHaaalaBBai ti',Vlh n,S?aaBaaBaS3 .y ; 888"i; XWs&M' ' ART j ,y -St i ,, KKi. .

CROWDS IN STATION PLAZA Hundreds Enjoy Watching Men At Work on Statue to Columbus. Throngs of people at all hours of the day, and up until 12 o'clock at night. And a peculiar fascination in watcning the stonecutters and sculptors at work on the big Columbus memorial on the Union Station plaza. And It Is not often either that peoplo get to see as flno work as Is being done by tho large force of men. In fact, some of the work Is so delicate the slightest slip of a chisel would ruin a piece of marble, and possibly delay the unveiling of the monument. The cutters are experts, real artists, and to lovers of such art their work Is fully appre ciated. An Idea of the delicate work being done by the stonecutters may be ob tained by looking at the huge ball rep resenting the world. In every respect it comes up to geographical require ments as to shape. At the present time there are about forty cutters and sculptors at work on tho memorial. They are working night and day in order to have everything In readlnesB for tho unveiling on June 8. A Great Aid in the Dairy .Professor Dean'8 first advice to dairymen Is "Clean tle palls, cans and separators thoroughly, at least once or twice a day." Soap and water remove surface dirt but they do not thoroughly remove all the little gorms which sour and taint the milk. The greatest of all cleansers Is Oold Dust washing pow der. It not only removes all tho visible dirt and grease, but goes deep after every trace of Impurity, and leaves the milk palls, cans and bot tles really clean, wholesome and safe. Moreover, it does the work more quickly and easily than any other cleanser known. Seeks $5,000.
