"We Chewed Leather Boots And Drank Rain Water",Says Sailor Adrift Two Weeks First Officer of Columbian. One of Four Survivors, Tells Horrors f p f . M . Q Boat on Trackless Ocean SING rUNtriAL HYMNS FOR 11 COMPANIONS HALIFAX. N. S.. May Is. Tim United states revenue eutter Seneca arrived here today with four emaciat ed survivors of the steamer Columbian which burned at sea on May ::. and the body of another sailor who died after he had been picked up with his four comrades from an open boat. The four live men rescued and brought to port after they had given up all hope of reaching land again are Robert Tiere. first otticer; Oscar Ken dall and Peter Rallenger, seamen, and Michael Ludwigsen. fireman. The man who ded on board the ienera was Peter Triel, a seaman. Tiere, whose hair had been whiten ed by his frightful adventure, had suf licientlv recovered today to tell some thing of 'the ixperiences of himself! ana nis cum paiuuiis aw imcj ieu un- shores of death. "When we put off from the Colum bian we had only a little food and water with us, but we were near the steamer lane and expeeted to be picked up soon." said the seaman. Signals of No Avail. "The weather' was cold and wo were cramped and stiff in the boat, but we cheered e.lch other the best we could. Throughout the first night at sea some of us were able to get a little sleep, but we set watches to keep an eye open for steamer lights. On the second day we saw three ships, but they were too far away to be sig nalled, although we tied our coats to oars and waved them until the ves sels passed from view? "Ry the end of the second day near ly all cur biscuits had been eaten and about half of our water had been drunk, but, shortly afterwards it be gan to rain and at frequent intervals until we were rescued rain fell. This saved us from the horrors of thirst at sea, for we managed to catch some of the water by spreading out garments until they were soaked, then we would wring them out, catching the precious drops of fresh water. "Some of the boys had pipes, but they had only a little tobacco and we passed tho pipes from one man to an other. It was as lonesome as it could be and some of the men began to lose heart when the third and fourth days passed without any ship coming wi;h in range of us. Some of the boys were getting flighty and began to talk strangely. Sang Funeral Hymn.. "Whenever a man died we sang hymns and threw the body overboard right away. This quick disposition of the bodies was necessary because when a man is starving and cannot get food no one knows what he will do. "We wore thick leather boots when we took to the boat which was a God send to us. "When the pains of hunger became unendurable we cut the leath er into strips and chewed what nour ishment we could get from .it. This and the dirty water which w. secured from our clothing when it rained fur nished our only sustenance. "All of us in the boat v.ere grown and hardened seamen, save one boy named Dycjman, who was only D years old. He bore up bravely, but the little chap was one of the first to go. One of the men prayed as we dropped his body over the gunwale. "It was an experience that lasts one for a life time. I had given up all hope and was exhausted and delirious when we were saved. I don't know us I will ever recover completely from the shock. They tell me the boat had "been carried 12f miles from the spot where the Columbian was burned." A message from the Seneca an nouncing the finding of the missing life boat wa.s as follows: "U. S. S. Seneca. 10 a. m., 4 0- miles south of .Sable island. Rescued life boat with Officer Robert Tiere. Sail ors Austin Kendal. Peter Relanger find Fireman Michael Ludwigsen, survivors of ir, men from Columbian. Others who died of exposure and starvation were Pngineer Margetts, Firemen Anderson, Antonio, Rich man, Gustafson. Jacob; Oiler George Hull. Cook Schrimberger. Sailor Clxnstensen and boy. Dyckmen. leaving Columbian men had only short allowance biscuit and water. Fating biscuit crumb and boot leather when rescued. Sighted three steamers first two days, none since. Much rain. All doing well under doctor's care. Signed Johnston." Worn and Haggard. The faces of the survivors, worn and haggard, were covered with long hair and their eye had sunk clear into their heads. No attempt was made to pet any detailed storv from them. They required the utmost care and at tention to bring them around again and this wa given them by the phy sician. Captain Johnson, the officers and all on board of the Seneca. That these four of the Columbian's t lew are living is almost a miracle. They had Ions; been mourned as dead and when they are able to talk freely of their experiences they will have a terrible story of the sea to tell the world. Short of provisions from the outlet thev had practically nothing to sub sist on and one by one tlley were .smote by the hand of death. Gradu ally the human burden of the boat beeame lessened, eleven of the men having died ami their bodies consign ed to the depths. FEAR FORT YUKON DESTROYED BY FLOOD TAt'oM.v. Wash.

Among the killed was a seven-year-old girl. The three adults killed were all non-conibatant.

The note was taken by two Amer ican gflicers through the f deral and rebel lines under a flag of truce to Obregon's headquarters. Cae Iiomh Dropping. The protest was successful and the aviator ceased his operations. The bomb dropping was described as fol lows by the correspondent: "I witnessed the dropping of bombs from the deck of the Fjili fornia. while watching the artillery duel that had been in progress since dawn between the stranded federal gunboat Morelos and Fort Hosales on one side and the rebels upon Monte Silla on the other. "When the aeroplane flew away it left behind and far below it a home turn in ruins and a wounded mother wailing by the mangled body of her child, while nearby lay the dead father of the family and two oth?r men. while in th? street outride the.v crawled away eight horribly torn and bleeding peons, half vcrized with th horror of what had fallen front the sunny blueiiess of the skies. "The family had been breakfasting when the tube of nltro-glycerin into the street before the adobe house near the Methodist church, in a street that bore the incongruous name of 'The Carnival.

"When this one crashed into the street a big hole was torn into the roadway, the thoroughfare w ii tilled with pieces of .adobe clay a d frag ments if iron and a dense cloud of black smoke arose. The house fTonts were shattered for a block. "Within ten minutes Mazatlan was a city of shuddering fear. The aero plane passed on and dropped another bomb, but this fell harmlessly Into an open pace near the fort. Then tho aviator sailed out of view in the direction of the rebel lines." BISHOP WHITE DENIES BALTIMORE INTERVIEW Says He Xrvor Made Statements Credited to Him in Criticism of Wilson-Bryan Policy. t, That he never gave out any such interview at Baltimore as came over the wires criticising Pres. Woodrow Wilson and Secy. Bryan is regard to the Mexican situation, and that he does not feel toward the president and secretary as the interview im ports, was posivitely declared Monday hy Bishop John Hazen White of the Fpiscopal church. "I never gave out any interview on the subjeet." says the bishop, "and can hardly imagine where it came from." Bishop White states that he is not given to taking sides in political con troversies, especially in the way of open statements, and does not regard it within his province. "The episco pal church is made up of men of all parties, and 1 presume that they knew their own thoughts on political matters. I am their spiritual, not their political advisor, and anyway, criticism of men high tip In the af fairs of government would be grossly out of place on my part." According to Bishop White this is not the first time his name and posi tion has been dragged into the public prints to give weight to somebody's whim. "Not long ago." he says. "I was quoted in a Chicago newspaper as giving out an interview there when I had not been in Chicago for two months, was 1.000 miles from there at the time, anil was credited with saying things that F had never thought of." The bishop wants to be set ripht with the people of South Bend with regard to the alleged Baltimore in terview. "I want them to know that f saiil nothing of the kind, and that the only bit of truth that there is in the statement is that I was in Balti more." he declares. of camps have been inundated.

BOMB DRQPPIMG ILL IN READINESS FOB SETTLING BIG PRIiVlARY CONTEST County and Townships Furnish 310 Candidates Voting Places and Men in Race as Scheduled by Commissioners Kxactly T.10 democrats, i rogressives and republicans, candidates for county and township offices, will contest their popularity within their respective par lies Tuesday, in the race for nomina tions that will end in the 18 voting precincts, after several weeks of cam paigning. County contests have, of course, stirred up the larger interest, and the hot bed of th- contests has been 'outh Bend and Mishavvaka. in these cities, with factories closed four hours of tho day. it is expected that interest has been aroused quite sutti cient to get out the full vote. All day Monday the candidates have been busy putting in their best licks, j but for the most part, good-naturedly. There has been none of the rancorous campaigning that marked the primary campaign preceding municipal elec tion a year ago. Some bitterness is said to have been wrought up in the republican ranks over the nomination for superior court judge and prosecut ing attorney, but elsewhere harmony seems to prevail. 1vo Hows of lxors. j Principal anxiety seems to rest with 1 those whose names have of necessity been dropped from the first to the sec ond row on the voting machines, due to their being more candidates than levers in one row on such machines. The democratic party has two rows, both quite well filled with candidates, while the progressives anil republi cans are affoetej only slightly, pos sibly so much the more to the detri ment of those whose names go on the lower row. The public ! urged to notice that there is two rows of can didates for each party. There is no such thing as voting a straight ticket by pulling down one lever at the head of the ticket, as at th general election. The voter must null a lever for each man that he each office, except for state represent atives for which two are nominated, and for county couneilmen. for which three are nominated for couneilmen-at-lare, and one from each of the districts: also vote for two for jus tices of the peace. Voting for each man separately as the primary law Uk si .intes. the v ot- r need only to bear in mind that he has two row's of levers to draw on. instead of one, and watch for the lower row as well as the upper, to get at the man Ire wants.

Hand cuffed, gagged and bound, four watchmen were found today in the olhce of the Strand theater at Broad way and 47th st. in tho heart of the district where New York's night life is liveliest. Safe blowers had entered the place, overpowered the watch men before they could make an out cry, then ritled the safe of $10,000 and escaped. The, helpless watchmen were discovered when employes ar rived for work today. Matthew Mitchell, chief night watchman, told the police that the robbers entered the theater shortly after 2 o'clock. "They knocked on the stage door pretending, to be detectives who had come to investigate the loss of jewelry in the theater," said Mitchell. "I did not suspect anything; and let them in. A moment later I thought j it best to make .sure an asked to see their badges, then they flashed re volvers and threatened to shoot if any of us made any noise. The men worked leisurely and it was ." o'clock before they left the theater. They were all well dressed, but put on masks immediately after they over powered me so I did not get a very good description of them. At inter vals of an hour they led me to the safety clock which I was compelled to punch, so that no alarm would be Kiven through the failure of this sip- ! nal to register." While the nu n were at work. Rob ert Mctadden of Hartford. Conn., who was superintending tho installa tion of an organ in the theater, knocked at the door to inquire after the progress of his workmen. One of the safe crackers pulled his mask from hi face and admitted McStad- i den. who was instantly overpowered. 1 he cracksman worked like old timers, using a heavy charge of nitro-glyeerin with which to shatter the safe. There was a policeman on . hxed post in front of the theater, but j the explosion was so muffled he did not hear it. .!. iwiv i-y jei .i Li.-e lie 1 1 a s no t heard from his wife in four years.
