Washington, April 20. Detter ro leults were obtained by tho senate committee Investigating the Titanic wreck when the task of examining witnesses was divided among the different members, each of whom acted separately and Individually. Among other things, It was es tablished that the Titanic was main taining a speed of about 221 miles an hour when tho collision occurred. Quartermaster Itowe, who was among tho last to leave tho sinking ship, swore before 6no of tho senators that ho read the ship's log just bo fore leaving tho vessel and that It registered 200 knots, Indicating Its run from noon of Sunday until tho time the accident occurred. He also declared that tho Iceberg scraped tho entire starboard side of the Titanic, and that from his position on the bridge on tho stern of tho boat ho was apprehensive lest the bridge it Bolt ho torn away by tho berg. All tho able-bodied seamen stew ards and stokers who were examined testified with startling unanimity to having seen tho light of another ship within from three to five miles of tho Titanic. It was Imposslblo to shako them In this belief, and sev eral declared that they could not only sec tho lights of the ship, but also her motion as she rodo tho waves. This testimony Is corrobora tive of that given by Officer Doxhall, who told of having seen the mast light and sldo lights of a vessel, which ho estimated to bo five miles away, and which he signalled for an hour from tho bridge of tho Titanic, Captain Smith's messenger was one of the witnesses examined- In this way. He told of a mysterious note that he carried from Captain Smith to tho chief engineer of the Titanic after the collision, and In this connection recited the Interest ing fact that the lights In the stokers' room were out within, 15 minutes after tho ship struck tho Iceberg. While the contents of this note will never be known, It Is believed by members of tho committee and others that it contained an order from the captain to the chief engi neer to start the pumps. The In quiry thus far has developed no tes timony that would Indicate that tho pumps of the Titanic ever were started. Members Draw Conclusions. Tho member of the committee to whom this messenger told the story believes that the darkness In the stokers' room within so short a time after the collision Indicates that water had reached tho electric wiring In this room and destroyed Its use fulness. William Marconi, head of the wire less company bearing his name, and Harold C. Cottam, the wireless oper ator on board tho Carpathia, were the only two witnesses examined by the full committee Wireless mes sages were Introduced In evidence showing that officers of the Marconi company had instructed their wire less operators on the Carpathia to hold the details of the disaster for sale exclusively to a New York news paper for a sum "In four figures." One of these messages was signed "Marconi," but Mr. Marconi denied nil knowledge of them and declared that he disapproved of them. He contended that he had been desirous of obtaining details of tho disaster at tho earliest possible moment for general distribution among public prints. Two more witnesses, who are ex pected to givo . Important testimony, have been subpenaed by Senator Smith to appear before the commit tee today. ' They are the captain and a wireless operator on the steamship Callfornlan, which Is now In dock at Doston and which Is scheduled to Ball Saturday. They have been or dered to pioduco the log of the Call fornlan. Captain .1. P. Moore of the Cana dian Paclllo railroad's steamship Mount Temple is also expected. Ho loo will testify before tho, committee with reference to a report that his tlhlp passed within sight of tho Ti tanic, saw her distress signals and ttiiled to respond. Captain Moore prefers to appear In person before Hie commlttoo rather than givo his testimony to a Canadian commission. His ship Is now In port at Si. Johns, rt.

Worcester, Mass., April 27. Reply ing o President Taft's broadside against him, Colonel Roosevelt de clared the president guilty of tho "grossest and most astounding hypoc risy" In declaring that he had never been disloyal to Roosevelt, gave the lie to the president several times, assorting at one time that tho president Is "guilty of a crooked deal," at another that the president's conduct In opening up tho harvester trust corespondenco "obviously" to Influence the Massachusetts pri maries," represents the very crook edest kind of a crooked deal, and de clared that the action of the adminis tration In not appealing the circuit court order In tho tobacco case to supreme court was "incompatible with the theory that the administra tion was acting In good faith." Asserting that "Mr. Taft Is presi dent only because I kept my promise In spite of infinite pressure to break It," and relating that President Taft wrote after he became president, "I can never forget that tho power 1 now exercise was voluntarily trans ferred from you to me," the colonel shouted to his hearers: "It Is a bad trait to bite the hand that feeds you." He had been de fending his Interpretation of hla promise not to accept a third term having referred to a "consecutive" term, Insisting that if he had raised his little finger In 1908 he could had the nomination, but steadily refused It, for Mr. Taft. Hints at Prosecution. Colonel Roosevelt declared that tha president In the Balllnger-Plnchot af fair, especially In conneclon with "that part of It In connection with which Important documents wora misdated, was guilty of conduct which, If he had been the head of a bank, would have gotten him Into serious trouble with the bank exam iner and possibly even with the dis trict attorney," Summing up his attltudo of opposi tion to the president, the colonel snapped out these sentences: "I do not believe he has given tho people a square deal. I bolievo ho has yielded to bosses and to the great privileged Interests. I think he has done this through feebleness, not through vlclousness. I nm sin cerely sorry for him and only regret that he did not have the strength ol character to-make good his promises to tho American people. "If ho had really represented the j interests of tho plnln people or tho United States I should have support-1 cd him heart and soul. I am ngutnni him only because I have been forced to believe that ho does not and can not represent tho vital needs of tho average man mid the average1 woman." tee, lias many witnesses under sub- I The inquiry Is attracting much attcn poena, and he says no more will be " "' tho room in which It Is held , ., . , . .. . is usually crowded, In the nccom- summoned for the present, but that 1 ,,..,,., I I panylng picture the principal persons an opportunity will be given to nil aro.
