Diver EnteretTUabin of Steam
Canal Boat F. B. Thurber But
Without Success.
Tells of Hearing Someone Paddling As The
Vessel Sank And Leads To The Suppo
sition That Both Woman And Child Got
Ont of Cabin? Cargo Being Taken From
The Vessel.
The Baxter Wreoking Company yes
erday afternoon began the work of
raising the steam canal llioat F. B.
Thnrber, which, as already told in
the News, sank at her mooring at the
Lehigh Valley dock early Thursday
morning. A diver explored the oabin
of the ill fated boat yesterday after
noon bnt failed to find the body of
Captain Merritt's five-year-old daught
er Mildred, which is still inissing
Pon toons are being placed alongside
the sunken boat, and the wrecker is
at work pnmping out her cargo of 186
tons of coal so that in a comparative
ly short time she may be raised and
placed on dry dock for repairs.
The News yesterday printed Captain
Merritt's story of the sinking of the
vessel, and last night a News reporter
found engineer Cook who had the fol
lowing to say nbont the matter:
"I was awakened just before the
boat began to sink, the pilot house,
where I was sleeping, having become
too warm and I had just retired again
after shutting the steam off, when I
heard a peculiar noise. Getting up
again I soon found out that the vessel
was going down and the water was
already rushing in the pilot house.
"After the boat sans and I had
reached a place of safety I heard what
seemed to be some one paddling in
the water. I tried to direct the cap
tain to go in the direction of the
noise. I heard the captain say, 'Hold
on mama. ' From this I took it that
Mrs. Merritt was still in the water
and that the child was holding on to
her as she was making an effort to
reach a place of safety. ' '
The fact that Mrs. Merritt's body
was found on the Staten Island shore
bears out the supposition suggested
by the engineer's story that Mrs.
Merritt was not drowned in the cabin.
This is also borne out by the failure
of the diver to find the body of the
ohild in the oabin.
Coroner Henry has not vet been
officially brought into the case as no
bodies have been found within his

The feast of the passover is the first
and the greatest of the three annnal
festivals of the Hebrews. It was in
atitnted by Moses at the command of
Jehovah, to commemorate the deliver
ance of the Iraelites from Egyptian
bondage. It is oelebrated according
to the Hebrew oalendar from the 15th
to the 22d day of Nisan, inclusive.
In former times the first and last days
were kept holy and observed by ab
staining from all work by prayers,
hymns, thanksgiving and other oere
mouies, and during the whole period
the bread was eaten without leaven,
whence the name of the feast of un
leavened bread. The evening of the
