Numbed by Cold, Men Are
Unable to Cling to Rig
ging and Drop Into Sea.
Newport News, Va., Jan. 4. .Twenty
two lives were lost when the ,steamer
Julia Luckenbach. from Fort Tampa
to Baltimore, was sunk off Tangier
Gas Buoy, is Chesapeake Bay. during
the terrific gSle which was sweeping
the coast. The Luckenbach was
struck in the bow by the British
steamer Indrakuala. The victims in
cluded Capt Gilbert and his wife.
Eight men, inelud'ng the second
mate of the Luckenbach were taken
from the rigging of the sunken ship
where they haJ clung for six hours
in the storm. Others i n the rigging
with them, numbed by the cold,
dropped off one by one drowned.
The rescue of the eight was mad.'
by the Danish tramp Pennsylvania,
Capt Lissner and the men were
brought into Newport News' early to
da. The Indrakuala, which rammed
the Luckenbach, is a British tramp
of 300 net tons, from Baltimore to
New York. She backed off after the
collision and the second mate of the
Luckenbach declares her master re
fused assistance to the 3ln.kiag ship.
Tramp Ship Is Damaged.
The Luckenbach was about to anehor
off the Tangier Buoy, at the mouth
of the Potomac early yesterday when
the Indrakaula caught her and cut her
practically in two in the line of her
number two hold. She went down like
a rock and only the men on deck had
a chance for life. The Indrakaula,
badly damaged and in danger of sink
ing, drew off and beached to save her
self With a wind blowing at cyclonic
velocity and waves beating against
them, the hardiest of jthe shipwrecked
crew held fast until their clothes were
torn to shrede and they were on the
verge of exhaustion. Chief engineer
Chris Knudsoo. was one of those in the
rigging He endured the gale until his
hands were bleeding from gripping the
ropes. He became exhausted and went
down before assistance came.
Rescue Made With Difficulty.
The Dttnlsh steamer Pennsylvania,
which came to their assistance, could
not reach tbem at first, even with life
boats, because of the heavy sea. After
many unsuccessful attempts. life lines

Tom Lea Says He Will Not
Be Candidate For Mayor;
Kelly Sure to Run.
Tom Lea, jr.. Democratic county
chairman, announced positively Satur
day that be would not make the race
this spring for major on the anti-ring
Major G E. Kelly said he had not
made up "his mind whether to -b: a
candidate for reelection or not. but
the political! wise say there is abso
lutely no doubt that the mayor will
make the race; that the "Ycnn,; Mtn s
jjeroocr&tlc club" never would have
gone fo Ms house to make the reqjset
if this had not been a part of the pre
arranged plan to show that he was
"chosen of the people. '
"I haven't had time to think about
the mayor's race." the mayor said at
noon Saturday. "You sse liow hubv I
have been this morning. It is lhis way
all the time. I cannot give you any
definite answer."
When the- mayor announces. It is said
that the present Incumbents of the city
hall will all faithfully "sacrifice" them
selves and run for their old jobs, al
though one alderman recently said that
they could not chloroform him and give
him the job again.
Kelly to Name Aldermen.
According to alderman i-ercy Mc
Ghee, mayor Kelly has the right to se
lect those who shall run on his ticket
a saldermen, inasmuch as the public
holds the mayor responsible for all
acts committed in the confin-js of the
city halt So he Intimated, although ho
would not commit himself, that very
one of tho aldermen would be found
sticking to the mayor if ae announced
himself for reelection.

The embargo probably will cause the
most critical internal condition through
the subsequent shortage of coal in the

line, the Chihuahua smelter soon will
be out of coal again; also the plants

Washington. D. C, Jan. 4. The en
forcibiltty of hundreds of gas and oil
land leases throughout the country is
said to depend upon a case -which the
supreme court of the United States
day was asked to review
The case is one in -which the Seventh
United States circuit court of appeals
held that the "surrender" clause In a
gas or oil lease by Sussanah Smith,
near Martinaville, HL. was inequitable
and unenforclble in equity courts.
Gas and oil companies claim that
such a clause giving them the right
to terminate the lease by the payment
of $1 is essential to the protection cf
the riskv business of developing gas
and oil fields. In the case in ques
tion, the owner of the land is said
to have disregarded the first lease,
containing the "surrender" clause and
made another to a rival company. Tha
first company was held not to be en
titled to an injuncticn to prevent the
second company developing the prop
erty In West Virginia. Ohio and Louisiana
the leases containing these clauses
have been held enforceable in equity,
but in Illinois and Oklahoma it nas
been held otherwise.
