LONDON, April 16.—Underwriters at Lloyd's were staggered at the news of the sinking of the Titanic, but it is declared that the insurance on the vessel is so evenly distributed that none of the underwriters are likely to be hard hit. Reassuring cable dis patches received yesterday had sent the reinsurance 'ate down to 25 guineas per cent, and the underwrit ers closed up for the night hopeful that all was well. When they reopened this morning a little business was done at 90 guineas but the rate soon raised to 95, which is known as a "total loss" rate. The exact amount of the property loss is hard to ascertain today. It was generally estimated, however, that with cargo the Titanic would rep resent a total value of approximate ly $12,500,0(M. Of this total, $750,000 was retained by the White Star com pany at its own ris and the balance placed on the insurance market in Liverpool, London, Hamburg and else where. The loss sustained is the largest on record in connection with "one bot tom." BULLETINS OF THE WRECK Steamer Goes Down. CAPE RACE. N. F., The steam er Olympic reports the steamer Titantic sunk.

The Bismarck boys took two candi dates for the third rank with them, and exemplified the work for the bene fit of the visiting knights. Prior to the initiatory work, Grand Chancellor Henry delivered his message to the convention, a message of enthusiasm and encouragement for the progress of Pythianism. He was followed by Grand Keeper of Records and Seal G. W. Wolbert of Bismarck, who empha sized the need of inculcating a spirit of enthusiasm among the individual members of the various subordinate lodges in order that they might attain Iheir full measure of advancement. After the rank work was finished the knights marched to the Topic theater, where a speical performance was given. Managers Wuerst and Kasson sprang several surprises upon the knights which kept them in the best of humor, and the show was greatly appreciated.

The old lady said she was sorry the trou ble occurred as she had always liked Pete and did not object to his smok ing, on the contray she enjoyed the smell of a good cigar, but could not stand the smell of the vile cigar he was smoking last night. The judge was a good judge and a judge of a good cigar, and discharged the pris oner. He told Mm if he smoked in the future to try the "All Stock and No Style" cigar as they only cost a nickel and are worth ten cents that they are made by the"Kuhles & Stock Co. of St. Paul, and are retailed in Bismarck ,by G.

ARE WPIllRfD THREE INDIAN GIRLS ESCAPE FROM INDIAN SCHOOL BUT ARE CAUGHT SOUTH OF MANDAN— HAD BEEN SEEN BY PEOPLE IN BISMARCK WHILE THEY WERE MAKING THEIR GETAWAY. Three Indian maids who escaped from the Bismarck Indian school were captured by Nick Helbling of St. An thony and turned over to a representa tive of the school, who was at Man dan in search of them. Mr. .Helbling gave a very vivid account of their cap ture. He said that he was driving into St. Anthony Saturday morning and he passed the three girls he passed the time of day, but they failed to an swer and appeared rafher sullen. Upon reaching town he told the storekeep er of what he had seen. At 10 o'clock Sunday morning the storekeeper no tified him that a 'phone call had come from Bismarck to watch for three girls who had escaped from the Indian school. Mr. Helbling says he Immedi ately hitched up and went in search of them. At the home of Anton Wetch. seven miles south of St. An thony, ihe found them at noon, eating their dinner. He took them to his home and kept them until iMonday. when he took them to IMandan and turned them over to the authorities. The girls were Isabelle Bird Bear, Mary White Twin and (Elizabeth Price. They escaped from the school late Friday evening, going first east and the nortJi, later circling back west and crossing the bridge. The girls were seen by several peo ple in Bismarck loitering around box cars and wandering about the city. It would be a source of great conven ience to the autho ties of the school if such cases be reported prompt ly, instead of the people waiting until an alarm of "runaway" is given, when they say "I saw them." Information communicated to the officials at the school would be greatly appreciated.
