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

thing of 'the ixperiences of himself!

"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
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

short allowance biscuit and water.

leather when rescued. Sighted three

Much rain. All doing well under

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

and all on board of the Seneca.
That these four of the Columbian's

dispatch received
here today from
the correspondent of the International
News Service, aboard the U. S. S.
The correspondent transmitted a
thrilling story of the operations of a
rebel aviator to Ma.atlan confirming
the report that four V'K
killed and.
on May 7
from an
above the
eight wounded in the city
when a bomb was dropped
aeroplane Hying iV'Oo feet
Among the killed was a seven-year-old
girl. The three adults killed
were all non-conibatant.
The joint Cerman-American pro
test was then sent by the two naval
otlicers to (Jen. ubregon. the constitu
tionalist commander.
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.
Tears Hole in Strtvt.
"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."
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
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
"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.

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.
In South Bend and Mishavvaka tho
NEW YORK. May 18. 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.
