Wreck Commission Reports To day Finding Alfred Tufteness Wrong and Negligent in Al tering Course in the Fug CAPTAIN NOT GALLED Why Steamer Sank So Quickly Is Important Question Which Remains to Be Considered by the Investigators Quebec, July 11. The collier tftor stad Is held to blame for the Km press gf Ireland disaster In the findings of the wrec k commission handed down to day. The commission holds the disaster was due to the Slorstad's change of course, ordered by the third officer without instruction from the first of ficer who was In charge of the collier at the time. The Kmpress was sunk in the St. Lawrence on May '9 with a loss of more than a thousand lives. The collier's third officer found re sponsible is Alfred Tuftenes. He was on the bridge when the crash occur red. "We regret," says the findings, "to have to impute blame to any one in . oiinectlon with the lamentable disas tir. and should not do so if we felt nnj other uasonablo alternative was left to us. We can come to no other conclusion thnn that Tuftenes was wrong and negligent In altering his course In the fog as he undoubtedl did. and that he was wrong and negll p nt ,n keeping the navigation of the vessel in his own hands and failing to call the captain when he saw the fog coming on. "It is not to be supposed the disas ter was in any way attribute 1 to any pedal characteristics of the St. Lawrence waterways. It was a disas ter which might have occurred in the Thames, in the Mersey or c, -.where under similar circumstances. Such is the conclusion we have ar rived on the question as to who was to blame for the disaster. Hut the ifues tion of much greater public interest and importance remains to be con sidered, viz: Why the ship sank so piii kly. and what steps, if any. can be taken to prevent the terrible conse- inences which so often follow such disasters. 'The main difference between the stones of flie officers of the Kmpress and sRaratad is to be found in the de scription of the way in which the two rwmeig war.' approaching each other at the tune. "Witii mm of the St'tfstad say they were approaching so as to pass from red to red. while those of the Kmpress gay they were approiu hing to pass fr. 'in griii; to mien The stories are Irrat ogmntfjtr We have come to the conclusion that Tuftenes was mistaken if ho sup posed there was any Intention on part of the Kmpress to pass from port to port or that she. by her Unfits, mani fgetod sit Intention of doing so, lea) it appears to us to be a mistake which would have been of no consequence if both ships had subsequently kept their i curses. "There is in our opinion no ground bT saving that the course of the Km press was ever changed In the sense that the wheel was wllfullv moved" BUTTE HELD NEGLIGENT BY FEDERATION FOR NOT SUPPRESSING THE RIOTS Hutte.
