Chi cago Record-Herald. SHIP SURVIVORS t BROUGHT TO PORT Mystery of the Annie M. Parker Fish ing Schooner Cleared up iy Return of ... . Men Last Night. Portland, Maine Nov. 6. The death of the cook and the probable loss of their captain, Vincent Nelson, and three of their mates, form part of a tale of the sea brought here last night by the survivors of the crew of the Gloucester fishing schoner, Annie M. Parker. The fact that their abandonment of the strand ed schooner near Nantucket and the loss of life wag unnecessary was not known to the crew until word reached them lust night that the schooner was in port at New Bedford practically undamaged. Nine survivors of the Parkers crew reached here aboard the lumber schooner Tifton, from Jacksonville, which had picked them up from dories 30 miles off Nantucket Sunday morning after they had been afloat 24 hours without food or drink. By an odd chance the Annig M. Parker preceded her crew into a port staunch and firm, apparently with only a jib missing. She was towed into New Bed ford yesterday, raising the. questions, why should a good ship be abandoned by its crewt and where was the crew? The Parker had floated herself from the ledge where she stranded and had been sighted Monday, drifting with all sails set, by the British steamer Astra khan. The steamer placed a prize crew aboard and the schooner arrived at the whaling port in tow of the revenue cut ter Gresham, which was summoned by wireless. A tenth survivor, Harry Nelson of Beverly, son of the captain, was left be hind on the Boston fisherman, Josie and Phoebe, exhausted from his experience but hoping to find trace of his father. Reuben Kenne, the cook, found a wa tery grave when he was swept overboard from a dorv while, his mates looked on, powerless to help. His home was at Glenwood, N. S. He leaves seven chil dren. The missing men, besides X-aptain Nelson, are ! Lester Fletcher of Argyle Sound, N. S. Koss Worthen of Pubnico Head, N. S. Thomas Landry of Arichat, C, B. The Annie M. Parker, bound home from the fishing grounds, but carried off her course by adverse winds, went aground on Rose and Crown shoal, on the Nantucket coast, early Saturday morning. The vessel was pounded by the waves and the crew agreed with Captain Nelson that hope for safety lay in getting clear of their craft. So they abandoned her. Three boats were put over the leeward side before one was launched. The first was smashed, the second was swamped, the third was floated and eight men put out in it. Two other boats were dropped overboard safely on the windward side, the one with three men and the other, the last, with Captain Nelson and three of his crew. In the darkness the boats lost sight of each other in a moment. The last seen of the captain's boat was when it was rounding the bow of the schooner. The seas were running high. The men in the other two boats did not see each other .until daybreak. When they got together, an account of stock was taken and it was found that neither had water nor food. . They drifted about all that day and the following night, constantly buffeted by heavy seas, one of which carried Reu ben Kenney, the cook, over the stern. Kenney fought hard to swim back to the boat, but went down before his com rades could reach him. When they were picked up by the Tif ton Sunday morning all the survivors were nearly exhausted. The supplies aboard the luton were low and the ten added hungry mouths taxed the schoon er to their utmost. The Boston fisher men Josie and Phoebe was sighted and hailed. The skipper had no fish on board but he set a trawl. He pulled in a goodly catch which, with flour and meal, was turned over to the Iiftons captain The Parker sailed from Sydney, N. S., for Gloucester, on October 20. Shortly after leaving Sydney the fisherman' ran into northwest gales, w ith the run of the tides she was driven far oft her course. After days of jockeying with the elements Captain Nelson found him self on last Saturday morning near Nan tucket, and was unable to work his ves sel off the lee shore. The survivors brought here last night were : George Surette, Surette Island, N. S.s Dennis Blade, Cape Island, N. F.; Ever ett Sawyer, Gloucester; mfred Allen, Windsor Harbor, N. S. ; Ash ton Hinea, Central Argyle, N. S.j Charles Goodwin, Ogunquit, Me.; Gilbert Smith, East Pub nico, N. 8.; John B. Farrell, Malther Bay, N.

ALLEGED THREATS TO SHOOT PROUTY Testified to in Trial of Lou A. Foster Charged with Murdering His Neigh bor in Town of Halifax. Brattleboro, Nov. (1. Aside from es fablishing the fact that Osaie Elmer Prouty of Halifax was shot with a 32 calibre bullet on October 10, instead of one of 38 -calibre and steel jacketed, the trial of Lou A. Foster of Halifax for the shooting of Prouty which has been in progress for two days, at Newfane de veloped little. Dr. B. H. Stone of Burlington, director of athe state laboratory of hygiene, who at the time of the inquest gave his opin ion that the bullet that killed Prouty was of 38 calibre, and thereby establish ed a mystery because of the fact that Foster had suffered a 32-calibre revolver, explained on the stand this afternoon that further investigation had shaken the first belief. Several witnesses were called to tell of alleged threats Foster had been heard to make against Prouty. Fred Chase said he had heard Foster say that he would "shoot Prouty like a dog and any jury would acquit him in 10 min utes." , - ' Biiell Brown of ; Marlboro, who had worked for Foster, said he had heard the same thing and had heard Foster say that he was afraid Prouty would fire his buildings. Nehemiah Sprague and Les lie Hill had heard similar threats. Mrs. Minerva Bliss, Foster's first housekeeper, and owner of the farm, said she had heard Foster say he would put a bullet through Prouty. On cross-examination she told of one time when hIic said she had run from the yard into the barn be cause bullets coming from the direction of the Prouty farm, jwere flying about. The state has a few more witnesses to call and the defense will call about 25. The morning was given up almost en tirely to hearing evidence to the effect that there bad been bad blood between roster and Prouty and that Foster had frequently threatened all kinds of dire things against his neighbor. Mrs. Cummings, Foster's housekeeper, was on the stand in continuation of her testimony of the day before. She denied thai sue had told UT, Ueorge K. Anderson who was called after the shooting, that Foster had been waiting for I'routv. Judge Gibson of the defense testified to finding three empty shells on a bureau in the Foster house and of turning them over to th officers. Hosea Fisher, a neighbor, testified to being called by Mrs Cummings and of finding the body of Prouty lving near the road. He told of threats he had heard uttered bv Foster. His two sons, Merritt and Ora, testified in similar vein. Fred Carpenter of Mt-. ll.oro, once an em ploye of roster, test! ",id to roster's hav ing threatened Prouty but admitted that he and Foster had parted not the best of frit-mis and that he might have said that if he waited long enough he would have a chance to get even with Foster. Sidney CoWman, a blacksmith, who ad mitted: that he had. testified for Prouty against foster in the 4uer killing case of two years ago, wanted only justice done and testified to many threats he had heard Foster utter while in the shop of the witness against I'routv. including one to drive him off the hill "dead or alive.T M0NTPELIER STREET FINANCES. There Was Some Doubt as to Amount That Is Available. A speciab meeting of the Montpclier city council was held last evening at- the call of Mayor Kftee to consider the con dition of the city's finances and to make some plan to raise money for use in the street department. . For some weeks Supt. of Streets Roberts has been ill and, while recovering, had another bad turn Monday, which has not permitted the mayor or alderman to consult him, anil when quest'oned last night as to just how' much was needed to carry" on the work for the raminder of the year, no one was able to tell. As near as the mayor could figure, beginning with next Momlay $303.01) would lie available. The mayor asserted something was wrong with the bookkeeping system, as the figures on the city's bonks and on the books of Superintendent Roberts did not tally, and no one knew how much had been spent on the stave road at the present time. He said he believed the work on this road should be stoped as soon as possible. The appropriation for the expenses of the street department has already been overdrawn and some action must be taken by the finance committee within the next ten days to decide from what source the needed funds shall come. ' Chairman Doucette of the finance com mittee thinks enough money will be coming m Jrom the state and work about the city to a mount to a large sum and relieve the critical condition of the treasury. It was estimated that about $3,(MK) will be due the city. $1,000 from the state (one-half the $2,000 appropria tion); $413.60, rebate on the state tax; $704.31. "car barn" blasting; $77.1!t, one half Lombard job; $470.81, resurfacing; $300, apportionim-nt of automobile tax; and pay for gravel, which will raise the amount to over l,HH). Mayor Estee suggested that, inasmuch as neither he nor anyone else seemed to know how much had been expended or must be ex pended in order to close things up for the year, the finance committee before the next meeting prepare a statement showing the exact amount needed and figures to show how much must be added to the treasury before February 1. It is hoped enough money will come in so that no special city meeting will have to be called. County Road Commission er Currier was present at the meeting and gave some figures: The question of selling the poor farm was brought up and it was the opinion of the council that the subject should be considered at tne next city meeting. It was moved that no more assess ments be made for sidewalk resurfacing this year. The resurfacing this year has not been a' success. Other motions car ried were: That the horse hired by the street department be returned when the state road is finished; that fJeorge Al mon be notified he will be held respon sible for damages resulting from his dig ging away a quantity of earth on his property near the new bank wall at Sunnyside park, and that he will be re quired to put in a retaining wall to pre vent the lMwik wall from being under mined by his excavations; that the low er floor of the Armory building he rent ed to Charles l'arker of the Capital City Press for 700 a year, payable quarterly in advance.
