of the great steamer at the time. It
is as follows:

for two hours. On the bridge from 10

Fleet and another man whose name I
don't know.
Second Officer Ugh toller, who was
on watch while I stood by from 8 to
10, sent me soon after 8, to tell the
carpenter to look out for the fresh wa water

of freezing. The temperature was
the about thirty-one degrees. He
gave the crow's nest a strict order to
look out for small Icebergs.

o'clock and I took the wheel then. At
11:40 three gongs sounded from the
crow's nest, the signal for "something
right ahead."
At the same time one of the men in
the nest telephoned the bridge that
there was a large iceberg right ahead.
As Officer Murdock's hand was on the
lever to stop the engines the crash
came. He stopped the engines, then
immediately by another lever closed

were, "Close the emergency doors."

Smith, sealed the fate of great num numbers

a lifeboat.
"When we heard the command to
lower the boats." said the sailor,
"some of the crew pressed forward.
Then came that call from the bridge:
'Be Britons, my men!'

Rer. B. J. Bateman, a well known
Jacksonville minister, was one of the
Tltanle victims. His sister-in-law,
Mrs. Ada E. Balls, who was saved, tells
as follows how he went to his death:
According: to her statements, she left
Dr. Bateman, her brother-In-law. at
12:M en the night of the sinking of the
Titanic groin gr to a lifeboat with other
only Florida man- on the Ill-fated
steamer, insisted upon remaining on
the Titanic,, and bade her farewell,
saying: "Let us trust in God and hope
to meet hereafter."
As the boat was lowered he took his
black tie from his collar and threw It
toward Mrs. Balls as a keepsake.
- Mr. Albert H. Marsh of Augusta. Ga.,
who was in the city last night, was
mourning the death of Major Archibald
Butt, president Taft's aid d'camp. who
lost his life on the Titanic. Major
Butt was born and raised in Augusta,
and all In the old fashioned Georgia
city feel that In his death they have
lost a personal friend.
Major Butt died like a soldier and an
American gentleman. Miss Marie
Toung of Washington City, one of the
survivors, tells of his last hour as fol
"The last person to whom I spoke
on board the Titanic was Archie Butt;
and his good, brave face, smiling at
me from the deck, was the last I could
distinguish as the boat I was In-pulled
away from the steamer's side.- Archie
himself put me Into the boat, wrapped
blankets around me and tucked me in
as carefully as If we were starting on
a motor ride. lie himself entered the
boat with me, performing the little
courtesies as calmly and with as smil smiling
ing smiling a face as if death were far away.
Instead of being but a few minutes
removed from him. When he had eare-
fully wrapped me up, he stepped upon
hat, smiled down at me. 'Goodbye, Miss
Young. he said, bravely and smilingly.
'Luck Is with you.. Will you kindly re remember
member remember roe to all the folks back home?
Then he stepped to the deck of the
steamer and the last boat to leave off
the ship (of this I am practically cer certain)
tain) certain) went without him and I am sure
I was the last of those who were sav saved,
ed, saved, to speak to blm. As our boat left
the side Archie was still standing at
the rail, looking down at me. Ills hat
was raised, and the same old genial,
brave smile was on his face."
No warship, it appears, was within
wireless hailing distance of the Ti Titanic,

and England have tens and dozens of
fast cruisers and battleships that
might, better than not, be assigned to
patrol the trans-Atlantic lane in time
of peace, for the purpose of rendering

against ice bergs in the way of target
practice. War vessels, it seems, might
well be used for some other purpose

ing fighting to be-done.. Savannah News.
It seems to the Star that as well in informed
formed informed a paper as the Savannah News
should know better than to print such
stuff. If the editor of the News will
look over his own files, he will find In
them frequent mention of succor to
ships in distress from war vessels. Only
a few months ago, one of our big bat battleships
tleships battleships took of! the crew of a sinking
steamer near the Virginia capes, and
the government frequently sends out
cruisers and gunboats to assist ships
In trouble. It was recorded in the
News' dispatches not long ago that the
cutters of the revenue service (a branch
of the navy, and always a hard-fighting
one in time of war) did magnificent
work every winter tn patrolling the
coast to aid ships that needed help. We
think it would be a foolish waste of
ammunition to shoot shells at Ice
bergs, but anyone who reads the press
dispatches will see frequent mention of
a gunboat going to sea to blow up a
derelict that threatens navigation. It
. has long been conceded that it was
foolhardiness that caused steamship
companies to drive their boats full
speed along the dangerous route taken

The meeting of the citrus fruit men
In Tampa has certainly caused a great
awakening to the Importance of the
work of exchange, and will probably
result In the permanent good. We clip
the following from the Tampa Times:
"We do not know positively whether
the exchange is saved until the regular
June meeting, said Sales Manager R.
P. Burton, at the casino last night
after Professor Ramsey's address.
"In order to be In anything like a
safe position in the trade at least 40
per cent of the state's fruit crop should
be marketed through the exchange.
"We have been handling about 18
per cent. 'With 82 per cent against us
we are not In a position to get the
best returns."
Many new contracts were signed
yesterday, among the largest being
that of Braxton Beacham of Orlando,
who put In about 125.000 boxes, but
while the exchange managers are feel
ing much, better after yesterday's
meeting, they do not know whether
they will have fruit enough yet, and
cannot know for some time.
Probably a majority of those who
were present yesterday and had not
been members of the exchange signed
the exchange agreement before going
away. It will be up to. them to get
busy at their homes, however, and get
their friends and neighbors in before
it can be at all certain that the good
work of the exchange is to go on.
The meeting served it3 purpose.

to the recall he said:
"I wish to touch upon this muth

Deplorable as it is, some courts are

The voters of Florida are called upon to decide many grave ques questions
tions questions at the spring primaries. It is my desire that every man shall know know-exactly
exactly know-exactly where I stand on these issues. I hope to be able to address gath gatherings
erings gatherings in all the principal communities. Those whom I cannot reach,
personally must be touched through the columns of the local newspapers.
Those whom I will meet personally will be in a position to judge in view,
I have prepared a short synoposis of the Sixteen cardinal reforms and
principles embodied in my platform for publication in every newspaper
- of the State. I ask the people of Florida to make me their governor as
the measure of their approval of my stand on these questions.
First Extended and increased powers to the Railroad Commis Commission,
sion, Commission, which .will insure the utmost rights for the shippers and which will
guarantee proper and equitable rate3.
Second The Convict Lease system of Florida is a brutalizing one.
" I am in favor of its abolishment and the placing of convicts on the public
highways of the state. Florida needs more good roads, and I believe
that they can be hest secured by working our convicts thereon. Also the
State has no right to profit by the misfortunes of its citizens. The actu actual
al actual labor to maintain the support of the convict is all the state is entitled.
. Any profit should be set aside for the benefit of the family of the con con-."
." con-." vlct. Because we should punish the criminal is no reason why his family
should suffer. On the contrary they should be protected and supported
by the labor of the convict -and thus the state w ill be relieved of the
possibility of the family being a public charge.
Ttiird To re-establish the rule of the people and to meet condi conditions
tions conditions that confront us today, I am in favor of the initiative, referen-
dum and recall.
The Initiative means that the people shall, by petition or otherwise,
make their desires known to their lawmaking bodies. The referendum
means that all laws Dassed by law-makinsr bodies shall be referred direct

Hto the people before they become operative.- At an election called for

rthat purpose the people can vote for

jects rejects it. The recall means that at any election, special or regular, the
people may by ballot, determine whether or not a public servant whosa
ierm has not expired is still acceptable to them; and a majoritj vote for
, or against" him determines whether or not that servant shall stay in of office
fice office or be recaller.
Fourth I favor additional laws for the control or trusts.
Fifth There should be stringent laws governing all corporations
authorized to 'o business in Florida; thus protecting purchasers of se securities
curities securities offered by such corporations.

Sixth Florida has suffered greatly through the operations of ir irresponsive

"My opinion ia based entirely on his
demonstrated qualities of leadership,

himself the ablest exponent of Demo Democratic

has been txlod and tested and has been

lead the party in this contest.

"In talking with Democrats In the
north and east on recent visits to tha
section I am convinced that we could
not nominate any man who would re receive
ceive receive as strong or stronger support In
those sections than Underwood. To
win we have got to carry some of the
states of the north and east like New
York, Indiana and others, and I am

satisfied that. Underwood will do It
where other Democrats cannot.
"To my mind there Is no question
of section in this contest. It Is the
question of the best man. Democrats
all over the country want the best

j man, no matter where he Is from. It
: makes no difference whether he is from
j north, south, east or west. It would
i be very gratify lug If we could have a

president from the south, but the first
question to consider is the mau.
"To my mind Mr. Underwood meets
all of the qualifications better than
any other Democrat we could possibly

Oh, yea, the mountains challenged
him also to the other side of the

child, but he was too old to make
the attempt. He could only sit and
pray and wait with such faint and fad fading
ing fading hope as he could still cherish un until

For the rest he troubled nobody; no nobody
body nobody noticed him, nobody marked him,
nobody minded him. Robert Maitland
transacted his business a little more
softly, a little more gently, that was
all. Yet the presence of. his brother
was a living grief and a living re reproach

blameless he blamed himself. He had
not known how he had grown to love
his niece until he had lost her. His
conscience accused him hourly, and
yet he knew not where he was at

Old Stephen Maitland rose unstead unsteadily

"Thank God!" he exclaimed with
deep feeling. "I have sat here day aft after
er after day and watched those mighty hills,
and I have said to myself that If I
had youth and strength as I have love,
I would not wait."

"You are right." returned Arm

strong, equally moved, and indeed it
would have been hard to have heard
and seen that father unresponsively;
"and I am not going to wait, either."
"I understand your feelings, Jim,

and yours, too," Steve," began Robert

Maitland, arguing against his own emo

tions, "even If she escaped the flood
she must be dead by this time."

"You needn't go over the old argu

ment, Bob. I'm going into the moun

continued swiftly, as the other opened

his mouth to interpose further objec

to decide what I can do. There is no

"It is impossible. How do I know

until I have examined every square

the longest, even."

"Well, that's all right," said Rob Robert

do that as soon as the spring opens;

but what's the use of trying to do it


"It's use to me. I'll either go mad
here in Denver, or I must go to seek

for her there."

"But you will never come back if

you once get in those mountains alone."

"I don't care whether I do or not

It's no use, old man, I am going, and

that's all there Is about it."

Robert Maitland knew men. He rec

ognized finality when he heard it, or

when he saw It, and it was quite evi

dent that he was in the presence of it

then. It was no use to say more.

"Very well," he said. "I honor you

for your feeling, even If I don't think

much of your commonense."
"Damn common sense," cried Arm

strong, triumphantly. "It's love that

moves me now."

At that moment there was a tap on

the door. A clerk from the outer of

fice bidden to enter, announced that

old Kirkby was in tbe ante room.

"Bring him in" directed Maitland

eager to welcome him.

He fancied that the newcomer would
undoubtedly assist him in dissuading
Armstrong from his foolhardy, useless


"Mornin, old man," drawled Kirkby,

"Howdy, Armstrong, my respects to
you, sir," he said, sinking his voice a
little as he bowed respectfully toward
Mr. Stephen Maitland, a very sympa sympathetic
thetic sympathetic look in the old frontiersman's
eyes at the sight of the bereaved father.

Kirkhy, you ve come In tno very
nick of time," at once began Robert

"Alius glad to be Johnny-on-the-spot,"
smiled the older man.
"Armstrong here," continued the
other, intent upon his purpose, "says
he can't wait until the spring and the
enow melt, he is going into the moun mountains

Kirkby didn't love Armstrong. He
didnt care .for him a littl bit hut




there was something In the bold hardi hardihood
hood hardihood of the man, something in the way
which he met the reckless challenge of
the mountains that the old man and
all the others felt that moved the in inmost
most inmost soul of the hardy frontiersman.
He threw an approving glance at him.
"I tell him that it Is absurd, impossi impossible,
ble, impossible, that he risks his life for noth nothing,
ing, nothing, and I want you to tell him the
same thing. You know more about
the mountains than either of us."

"Mr. Kirkby," quavered Stephen Mait Maitland,
land, Maitland, "allow me. I don't want to in influence
fluence influence you against your better judg judgment,
ment, judgment, but if you could sit here as I

have done, and think that maybe she
is there, and perhaps alive still, and

in need, you would not say a word to

deter him."

"Why, Steve," expostulated" Robert
Maitland, "surely you know I would
risk anything for Enid. Somehow, it
seems as If I were being put In the

selfish position by my opposition."

; ao, no," said his brother. "It isn't
that. You have your wife and chil

"Well, what do you say, Kirkby? Not
that it makes any difference to me
what anybody says. Come, we are

wasting time," interposed Armstrong,

who, now that he had made up his

mind, was anxious to be off.

Jim Armstrong," answered Kirkby,
decidedly. 'T never, thought much o

you in the past, an I think senCe

you've put out this last projick of
yourn, that I'm entitled to call you a

damn fool, w'ich you are," and I'm an

other, for I'm goin into the mountains

with you."

"Oh, thank God!" cried Stephen
Maitland fervently.
"I know you don't like me," answer answered
ed answered Armstrong. "That's neither here
nor there. Perhaps you have cause to
dislike me, perhaps you have not. f

don't like you any too well myself, but

there's no man on earth I'd rather
have go with me on a quest; of thfs
kind than you, and there's my hand
on it."

Kirby shook it vigorously.
"This ain't commitUn myself," he

said cautiously. "So far's I'm con concerned,
cerned, concerned, you ain't good enough for Miss

Maitland, but I admires your spirit,

Armstrong, an' I'm goin' with you.

'Tain't no good, 'twon't produce nothin',

most likely we'll never come back

agin; but jest the same, I'm goin'

along. Nobody's goin' to show me the

trail. My nerve and grit, w'en it
comes to helpin' a. young female like

that girl, is as good as anybody's, I

guess. You re her father," he drawled,
on turning to Stephen Maitland, "an

I ain't no kin to her, but, by gosh, I
believe I can understand better than
any one else yere what you are feelin."

"Kirkby," said Robert Maitland, smil

ing at the other two, "you have gone
clean back on me. I thought you had
more sense. But somehow I guess it's
contagious, for I am going along with
you two myself."

"And I, cannot I accompany you?"

pleaded Stephen Maitland, eagerly

drawing near to the other three.

"Not much," said old Kirkby prompt

ly. "You ain't got the stren'th, or

man. You don t know tnem mountains.

nuther. "Tou'd be helpless on a pair f

snow shoes; there ain't anything you

could do, you'd Jest be a drag on us.
Without sayin' anything about myself,
w'ich I'm too modest for that, there
ain't three better men in Colorado to
tackle this job than Jim Armstrong
an' Bob Maitland an' Well, as I
said, I won't mention no other names."
"God bless you all, gentlemen" fal faltered
tered faltered Stephen Maitland. "I think, per perhaps,
haps, perhaps, I may have been wrong, a little
prejudiced against tbe west. You are
men that would do honor to any family,
to any society in Philadelphia or any anywhere
where anywhere else."
"Lord love ye," drawled Kirkby, his
eyes twinkling. "There ain't no three
men on the Atlantic seaboard that kin
match, up with two of us yere, to say
nothin' of the third."
"Well;" said Robert Maitland, "the

thing now is to decide on what's to be

done." v
"My plan," said Armstrong, "is to go
to the old camp.
"Yep," said Kirkby, "that's a good

point of deeparture, as my seafarjn' fa

an' wot's next?"

"I am going up the canon instead of

down," said the man, with a flash of
"That ain't no bad idea, nuther,"

assented the old man. "We looked the

ground over pretty thoroughly down

the canon.- Mebbe we can find some

thing up it."
"And what do you propose to take
with you?" asked Maitland.

ways was. "We'd jest throw away our

lives a-wanderin round these yere
mountains in the dark. We've got to
have fight, an clear weather. Ef It

should be snowin' in the mornin we'd

have to wait until it cleared."
"I wont wait a minute," said Arm

strong. "At daybreak, weather or no

weather, I start."

"What's your hurry, Jim ?" continued

Kirkby, calmly. "The gal's safe; one

day more or less ain't goin' to make

no difference."

"She's with another man," answered

Armstrong quickly.

"Do you know this Newbold?" ask

ed Maitland, looking at tbe note again.
"No, not personally, but I have heard

of him."

"I know him," answered Kirkby

juickly, "an you've seed him too. Bob;

he's the feller that shot his wife, that

married Louise Rosser."
"That man!"
"The very same."

"You say you never saw him, Jim?"

asked Maitland.

"I repeat I never met him." said

Armstrong, flushing suddenly; "but I
knew him wife."
"Yes, you did that" drawled the
old mountaineer.
"What do you mean?" flushed Arm

"I mean that you knowed her, that's ;
all," answered the old man with an in- j
nocent air that was almost chlldike.
When the others woke up in the j
morning Armstrong's sleeping bag was
empty. Kirkby crawled out of his own
warm nest, opened the door and peer-!
ed out into the storm.
"Well," he said, "I guess the damn
fool has beat God this time. It don't :
look to me as if even he coum save i
him now." j
"But we must go after him at once,"
urged Maitland. j
"See for yourself," answered the old j
man, throwing wider the door. "We've j
got to wait "til thi3 wind dies down, un- f

less we give the Almighty the Job o
lookin after three instld o one."
