Wilson Indorse Navy Increase.
"I nni authorized by President Wil
son to tell the committee that lie ap
proves thin naval Increase program.
I conferred with him before coming
to the committee and am speaking the
last word.".
Thus Secretary Daniels announced
to the house naval affairs committee,
urging additional naval construction.
"I recommend to the committee and
to congress," said Mr. Daniels, "author
ization for the construction of at least
two battleships of the first class, eight
torpedo boats and three submarine de
stroyers. This la the smallest pro
gram that should be considered by the
committee even under the most eco
nomic legislative plan.
Farm Land Bank System.
There was Introduced In congress a
bill providing for the establishment
of a national farm land bank system.
This measure Is tentatively the ad-mlr'-strntion
bill for the establishment
of uAtinnal rural credit system.
The bill as introduced provides for
the creation, operation and super-vlsl-n
ot a national farm land bank
system through which the farm land
banks to be established under the
terms of the act or to be created
through the federalization of existing
state farm mortgage concerns anil
farmers' banks shall become the new
rural credit syBtem of the United
Radium Bill Appears.
A radium conservation bill was In
troduced In the house today by Chair
man Foster of the house mines and
mining committee, which provides for
government ownership and operation
of radium bearing ores on public lands
and distribution of the radium for frt-e
use in cancer treatment. No effort
will be made by the government to
take over any private claims to radium
lands now being operated. Prospec
tors will be encouraged to locate the
radium ores on public lands, but the
government will get the ores and ex
tract the radium at its own plants or
at private plants under its supervision.
Holler For Stock Exchange Legislation.
Scores of letters urging stock ex
change legislation have been received
by the senate committee on banking
and currency. The announcement
that hearings will begin Feb. 4 has
aroused such wide interest that it now
is believed stock exchange legislation
will be made a distinct issue this

No Panic Aboard Monroe; Fog
Cajses Collision
Nineteen Passengers Go to Death
When Liner Nantucket Crashes Into
Old Dominion Line Steamer Monroe.
Lost, passengers, 19; crew, 24.
Total, 43. Saved, passengers, 36;
crew, 55. Total, 91.
This Is the tragic summary of the
wreck of the Old Dominion liner Mon
roe, rammed and sunk by the steam
ship Nantucket off Chesapeake bay.
Surrounded by a dense sea fog the
two ships approached each other. Not
until they were within actual hail of
the voice did the officers of either
craft discover the lights of the other.
Then it was too late. The whistles
shrieked their warning, the signal
bells tinkled too late.
The greut steel prow of the Nan
tucket struck the Monroe about thirty
feet abaft her port bow. Right
through her plates the Nantucket
crushed away like a knife through
:hoese. The ship was rent in an In
stant. The blow had struck to her
very vitals. She filled and sank and

Shocking as was the tragedy the gal
lantry "of the officers and crew of the
doomed ship and of the vessel which
had struck the fearful blow must fur
nish a brilliant page for the annals
of the American merchant marine. .
The white Beamen and the black
stewards vied with each other In depds
of gallantry and self-sacrifice that find
their prototypes In the history of the
men of the sea from the earliest days.
The stewards, with life preservers,
insisted the passengers, the most of
whom were clad only in night robes.
They fastened the preservers about
them, they helped them over the side
to the boats, they cajoled and en
couraged them and, let this be re
membered, these stewards were black
men. Many of them were drowned
In the rush of waters that followed
the downward plunge of the ship.
When the crash came practically all
of the passengers on the Monroe was
asleep. The force of the Impact threw
them out of their berths. Frightened
by the shock they rushed to the deck
In their night clothes only to find that
the ship was filling and sinking rapidly.
Many of the passengers and crew In
stantly threw themselves Into the sea,
seeing that there would not be time
to lower the lifeboats and most of
these were saved.
Rut there were many passengers
and seamen who went down with the
ship before ever reaching the deck.
Captain Johnson and all of the of
ficers of the ship except J. K. Gately
were saved. The officers were picked
up out of the sea by small boats from
the Nantucket. All of the passengers
who were saved were rescued In that
The wireleta calls for aid went out
from the Monroe immediately after
the crash and were caught as far away
as Boston, but there were no other
ships close enough to reach the scene
In time to render any aid.
Though the Nantucket was badly
damaged her lifeboats were quickly
manned and put overboard nnd the
work of rescue began. Though lost In
the mist almost immediately after
their boats left the side of the ship
the sallorj of the Nantucket went
about their work undaunted and re
mained at the scene until no more
persons were to be found.
"It was Just a solid stunning crash,
no grinding and gritting, but thunder
ing crunch," said a Mrs. Rollins, one of
the rescued. "I had called my hus
band and iie started to rise when the
shock camt. He tumbled out of his
hunk, grabbing a single piece of his
clothing, and together we mnde our
way into the dining saloon. The ship
already was careening and the deck
was on a steep slant.
"I do not know how long the Mon
roe floated, but It seemed to me It
was hardly ten minutes from the time
she was struck until I was swept off
the rail by a wave of water and saw
the lait of the ship, which was a
little space not bigger than a hall
bedroom, disappear beneath the

they could be. There was uo excite-

tnent such as I would have expected
Kverybody worked fast and furiously
but very quietly. The moment almost
that I hit the water 1 was assisted by
three men and they held me up and
encouraged me. We were all picked
up by a lifeboat and then 1 fainted."
Mr. Rollins remained in the wator
for forty-five minutes calling for help
and finally was pickud up.
E. J. J. Newby, U. S. N., was among
the survivors aboard the Nantucket.
Mr. Newby said: .
"I was In bed when, tho crWi carpe
and grabbed my trousers, ' coat and
cap and what littlo money I had. Im
mediately the ship listed and in going
up on deck I had to crawl like a
monkey hand over hand.
"The officers of the vessel acted
with promptness and cllicieiicy. In
an Incredibly short time all of tho
ollicers and the members of the crow
were at their proper posts."

Judge Adams In St. Louis Authorizes
Because the Wabash railroad re
ceivers were unable to take advantage
of a legal opportunity to save the road
from foreclosure by paying the do
faulted interest, aggregating more than
J4,000,000, the sale of the system was
authorized by Judge Klmer 11. Adams
in the United States circuit court in
St. Louis.
The decree of foreclosure was hand
ed down on motion of the 10iUitablu
Trust company of New York, which as
trustee holds $40,600,000 In the bonds
of the Wubash.
Judge Adams directed that no bids
for the property lower than '14,000,

made without appraisement.

Gompers at Miners' Convention
Defends Federation
An Assessment For Copper Mine
Strikers in Michigan Would Have
Wrecked Federation, Says President.
In response to the request of the
United Mineworkers that he appear
before thenr and explain the alleged
apathy of tho American Federation of
Labor In connection with the copper
miners' strike in Michigan Samuel
Gompers, president of the federation,
addressed the convention.
"1 have given and will continue to
give all that is in me to further the
strike of copper miners," asserted
Mr. Gonipe's. "You may not know
that the miners only pay nine cents a
year to the American Federation of
Labor. That is all the other organiza
tions affiliated with the federation pay
also. Do you think we can accumu
late a large defense fund on that tax?
"Mr. Moyer says the strike costs
about $.10,000 a week. The federation
could raise only $!)0,000 In six months
if every organization were to pay. An
assessment would mean the disintegra
tion of tho American Federation of
Labor, for the constitution provides
for the expulsion of any union which
does not meet its assessments and
only about one-third of the unions
can pay."
Mr. Gompers denied that he main
tained a machine to keep himself In
office and, as an Illustration, said lie
had two offers of positions from the
governor of a great state, one paying
$S,000 a year and the other $10,000,
but had refused both to continue in
the labor movement.
"The labor movement Is a part of
my life." he continued, "and I'm going
to stick to it. You may drive me out
of office, but you can't drive me out
of the movement."
Answering the published reports
that the delegates had referred to the
executive officers of the federation as
"fossilized" and booze fighters, Mr.
Gompers declared that, although ho
owns up to sixty-four years, he Is as
well preserved as any man of his ago
and that eight of the eleven men on
the executive council are total ab
stainers. When Duncan McDonald, delegate
from Illinois, told Mr. Gompers that
he did make the reported statements
referred to the convention cheered.
Mr. Gompers challenged any man
to show he had not done his work
thoroughly. Ho nsked the delegates to
read the report on the development
of Industrial unionism and said that
every encouragement for amalgama
tion had been given by the federation.

Secretary of the Interior Alcocer
suys the numerous sudden arrests
have preventel the conspirators from
formulating a definite plan. Up to the
time of their urrest they had merely
been .developing a seditious propa

schemes. Secretary Alcocer said that
no political parties were Implicated
but merely Individuals who were In

Prominent Fellcistas deny the exist
ence of a plot against the lire of

were made by the government us nil
excuse for the arrest of the men and

plot was organized by partisans of
