I * CAN THERE BE NO PROGRESS? i Another marine disaster, more awful than any that has occurred on the Pa oiflc coajt for man; years, shows of how little use, in case of need, are the lifeboats that, a* they hang from their daviu, (ire such an air of insuring security in the event of shipwreck. In all steamship catastrophes that htve occurred on this coast during the past five or six years, when passengers hare been obliged to leare the ship, thr lifeboats have Invariably proved inade quate to the occasion. This has been the case whether the calamity oecurr-d in rough or calm waters. '' he boats have either been but rotten ?helU, ill manned or over loaded. Keen compe tition for traffic has been the incentive for wonderful progress in marine speed, tor rapidity In loading and debarking, for comfortable cabins and staterooms and sumptuons spreads. There is money in all Mat The underwriters, aa a cold matter of business, have great ly increased the safety of ships. But the lifeboat on linen is the same un available false pretense it was .">0 years ago? a delusive deathtrap, whether in rough or calm waters, in mid-ocean or a mile from shore. No lesson seems to have been taught by succeeding disas ters to alter the m notonous record of rottei. 111 manned overloaded or disor derly launched lifebojts. The Atlantic has bt>3n crossed by a sailing craft, built for daring sport, of 22-foot keel: skilled boatmen in small fishing craft safely dare the breakers of dangerous birs and s.nall whale and ?ealboats ride the ocean waves with few accidents. It may be difficult to maintain ord< r among cass-ngers frenzied with fear, t > make small boats that will r'de the waves, and to maintain crews of expert oarsmen, but it would seem that efforts to attain these ends have not been suf ficiently strenu us ' ? = In sorrowing for the lost passengers of the <lallam, it would be unjust not to extend warm sympathy to the cap tain of the steamer. Had the passen gers reached the sho.-e, as he hoped, and he had gone down with his ship, as he expected, he would have been an universally admired turo.
