New York. April 22. With dramatic
suddenness the Senate Investigation of
the Titanic disaster came to an end
Saturday, so far as the New' York
bearing: was concerned.
It will be resumed, however. In
Washington today, when J. Bruce Is Is-may
may Is-may and P. A. S. .Franklin, the chief
officers of the White Star Line, and
more than a score of officers and crew
of the sunken vessel will appear Be Before
fore Before the committee.
Incident to the sudden close of the
hearing here was the story of Harold
S. Bride, the second and only surviv surviving
ing surviving wireless operator of the Titanic.
His tale was one of suffering and of
death. He told of the final plunge or
the vessel to Its ocean burial. Its
captain's end was also revealed. He
leaped from the bridge when the wa waters
ters waters were closing over his ship.
Aa Unheeded Waralaar
A phase of the laxity of the wire
less, so far as man is concerned was
developed by the chairman. He drew
from the witness an acknowledgement
that on Sunday evening Bride was
sitting with the telephonic apparatus
strapped to his ears, adjusting his ac
counts, while the steamship California.
seeking to warn the Titanic that ice icebergs
bergs icebergs were Invading the Janes of ocean
travel, called Incessantly. Bride said
he heard the call but did not answer
because he was "busy." It was not
until a half hour later that the Cali
fornia, striving to. reach the steam
ship Baltic reached also the Titanic.
whereupon the warning that three
huge icebergs had been sighted was
noted by Bride ana verDaiiy communi
cated- to the liner's captain.
Stingy Steamship Cempaay Employ
fqeompeteat Ifta
Like Cottam. who is 23 years old.
Bride is merely a boy. Neither had
any telegraphic experience previous to
taking up wireless telegraphy and
both told tales of long hours at low
wages and days and nights spent
without sleep.
This Inexperience and the mental
condition of the young operators were
the two points on which Senator Smith
bore persistently. Hp had nut Cot Cottam
tam Cottam through a gruelling examination
in which the youth testified he had not
slept more than eight hours between
Sunday night when the. Titanic called
for help and Thursday night when the
vessel docked here. Bride's story was
one that bore out virtually all that
Cottam established, except that Iris
was one of nervous strain and worry
and high keyed suspense.
A Bmb4)i of Amateur
Bride was clpsely questioned as to
the first call fpr aid sent out by the
T'tapip. He said the first vessel to
answer was the Frankf urt of the
North German Lloyd Line. The opera operator
tor operator on the Frankfurt, according to the
witness, apparently considered the
call more or less-trivial for half an
hour after receiving the Jmperatlve
appeal of the sea, he oalled the Titanic
to Inquire specifically just what was
wrong. v
"Mr. Phillips said he 'was a fool,"
Bride testified, referring to the chief
operator on the Titanic who lost his
life, "and told him" to keep out."
No effort was made to reestablish
communication with the Frankfurt, al
though. Phillips felt certain that the
vessel was nearer than the Carpathia,
with which cpmmunication had been
affected. This, Bride said. Phillips
judged by reasons pf the greater pow
er- of thp Hertsian waves..
"As I have said, we did not try fpr
the- Frankf urst for any length of time,
but concentrated, pur messages pn the
Carpathia.- whleh had answered that
she was rushing to pur aid."

He quoted Senator Tillman who said

Amazing ProgreNH that One Generation
Ham Wltneftfted
(Richard II. Edmonds, Editor Manu
facturers Record, in New York
Sun of April 13)
In the last thirty years the popula-
ion of the South has increased 7.5
per cent., but during the same period
the capital invested in manufactures
increased 930 per cent., the value of
mineral products 1930 per cent., the
output of coal 1500 per cent., the value
of farm lands and buildings 303 per
cent., the resources of national banks
891 per cent., and the expenditures for
common schools 525 per cent. These
figures indicate something of the amaz amazing,
ing, amazing, increase in agriculture, in manu
factures and In banking capital as
compared with the increase in popula
The value of farm products In the
South in 1880 was $756,000,000. Last
ear the amount was over $3,000,000,-
000, and was greater by $600,000,000
thun the value of all the farm crops of
the United States as late as 1890.
The value of exports from Southern
ports last year was $747,000,000, as
compared with $857,000,000 for the en
tire county in 1890.
In 1890 the corn crop of the country
was 1,489,000,000 bushels, while the
corn crop of the South In 1910 was
1,270.000,000 bushels. It Is true that the
corn crop of the country in 1890 was
less than the average, but these figures
give an idea. of the rapid development
of corn-growing in the South, when in
one year it could produce a crop almost
as large as even a small crop of the
entire country in 1890.
The population of the sixteen South
ern states Is 33,000,000, while that of
the United States in 1880 was 50,000,000,
but the capital Invested in manufac
turing in the South Is now $3,000,000,-
000, or $300,000,000 more than the total
capital Invested in manufacturing In
the United States in 1880.
The South now has 1,000,000 more
cotton spindles than the United States
had in 1880. The value of the mineral
products last year was $369,000,000, or
$5,000,000 more than the total value of
the mineral products in the United
States In 1880.
Last year the South mined 115.000,-
000 tons of 5oal, while In 1880 the
United States mined of bituminous and
anthracite coal only 71,480,000 tons.
Probably the most striking illustra
tion of the increasing wealth of the
South is that, though Its population is
17,000,000 less than that of the United
States in 1880, the Individual deposits
in its national banks exceed the In
dividual deposits In the national banks
of the United States in 1880 by $84,
The South now spends for common
school education over $78,000,000. or a
little more than the total expenditures
of the United States in 1880 for com
mon schools.
These facts merely show what the
South has achieved in things that can
be expressed in figures. They do not
however, show the gain that has been
made In the accumulated experience. In
the momentum developed, in the world

South's amazing resources and of the

characterized his feelings, but his pas

party led by old Kirkby and Maitland

which had buried the poor woman on
the great butte in the deep canon.
Before he got back to the camp the
whole affair was over and Newbold
had departed. Luckily for him, Arm Armstrong
strong Armstrong had always thought, for he
had been so mad with grief and rage

and jealousy that If he had come

across him, helpless or not, he would

have killed him out of hand.

Armstrong had soon enough forgot

forgotten Newbold. All his ancient an animosity
imosity animosity had flamed Into instant life
again, at the sight of his name last

night. The inveteracy of his hatred had

been, in no way abated by the lapse

of time, it seemed.
Everybody in the mining camp had
supposed that Newbold had wandered
off and perished in the mountains, else
Armstrong might have pursued him
and hunted him down. The sight of
his name on that piece of paper was
outward and visible evidence that he
still lived. It had almost the shock
of a resurrection, and a resurrection
to hatred rather than to love. If
Newbold had been alone in the world,
if Armstrong had chanced upon him in
the solitude, he would have hated him
Just as he did, but when he thought
that his ancient enemy was with the
woman he now loved, with a growing

but he could come to only one conclu

sion. Newbold must have found Enid

Maitland alone in the mountains very
shortly, after her departure, and he

had her with him in his cabin alone

or at least a month. Armstrong

gritted his teeth at the thought. He

did not undervalue the personality of
Newbold. He had never happened to

see him, but he had heard enough

about him to understand his Quali

ties as a man. The tie that bound

Armstrong to Enid Maitland was a

strong one, but the tie by which he

held her to him. If indeed he held her

at all, was very tenuous and easily

broken ; perhaps it was broken al

ready, and so he hated him still more

and more.

Indeed, his animosity was so great

and growing that for the moment he

took no Joy in the assurance of the"

girl's safety; yet he was not altogether

an unfair man, and In calmer moments

he thanked God in his own rough way

that the woman he loved was alive and

well, or had been when the note was

written. He rejoiced that she had no

been swept away with the flood or that

she had not been lost in the mountains
and forced to wander on finally tc
starve and freeze and die. In one mo moment
ment moment her nearness caused his heart to
throb with joyful anticipation. The
certainty that at the first flush of day
he should seek her again sent the

warm blood to his cheeks. But those
thoughts would be succeeded by the

knowledge that she was with his en

emy. Was this man to rob him of the

latest love as he had robbed him o

the first? Perhaps the hardest tas

that was ever laid upon Armstrong
was to lie quietly in his sleeping bag

and wait until the morning.
So soon as the first indication., of
dawn showed over the crack of the
door, he slipped quietly out of his
sleeping bag and without disturbing
the others drew on his boots, put on
his heavy fur coat and cap and gloves,
slung his Winchester and his snow
shoes over his shoulder, and without
stopping for a bite to eat, softly open opened

after him. It was quite dark in the
bottom of the canon, although a few
pale gleams overhead indicated the
near approach of day. It was quite
still, too. There were clouds on the
mountain top heavy with threat of
wind and snow.
The way was not difficult, the direc direction

very difficult at first; the snow was
frozen and the crust was strong enough
to bear him. He did not need his
snow shoes, and, indeed, would have
had little chance to use them in the
narrow, broken, rocky pass. He had

slipped away from the others because j
he wanted to be first to see the man (

forward. As he followed the windings

of the canon, not daring to ascend to

the summit on either wall and seek

short cuts across the range, he was

sensible that he was constantly rising.

There were many indications to his
experienced mind; the decrease in the
height of the surrounding pines, the

increasing rarity of the Icy air, the
growing difficulty in breathing under
the sustained exertion he was making,
the quick throbbing of his accelerated

heart, all told him he was approaching
his journey's end.

He judged that he must now be

drawing near the source of the stream,

and that he would presently come
upon the shelter. He had no means of

ascertaining the time. He would not
