A few years ago human Imagination
had never winged such flights, but
now they ure uccomplistied fact, and
soon will be commonplace -again, by
A simple   recital ol   the   events of
Friday,    without any    trimmings or
comment. Is enough to tilt any individual with nwo and    wonder, at the .
wlrelcw*.    The Kentucky, in a waste .
of buffeting seas, her seams opening, :
sputtered  nut the call of doom from i
the   crackling tips   of  the  wireless.
Thu* wa«    the   forenoon.   The latl-
tude and  longitude glveu show that |
tbe slaking steamship was about 200
tnlle-s     from     the nearest land,    the
coast of North Carolina.
Follow lirst the sequence of events
on the sea. The liner Alamo, bound
for Newport News, Va.,was soine-
wuere within the sphere of influence
of the wireless, and turning on her
beet she headed tor the point Ind lea
ted on the Atlantic chart, her engine* driving at full speed. She also
intimated to the iir, her destination,
by, tho wireless. The wireless station
at Charleston, S. C, Intercepted
both messages, which wore "almost
simultaneous," and as one result
the navy department caused orders
to be committed to the air to invisible ships. Two revenue cutters and
the battleship Louisiana, presumably
the three nearest craft to the scene.
dropped whatever business they had
io band and tore through the sens
from various points of the compass
towards the unseen Kentucky. The
race to give assistance was won hy
the lAlumo, and nt 3:30 o'clock in the
afternoon, some three or four hours
after sending the distress signni, she
stood by thc foundering steamer and
took off her crew. Had she not been
there, without doubt one of thc three
other craft would have heen there n
little later to perform the same officers. A few hours later the Kentucky
waa beneath the waves.
Outside of the zone of action thc
sequence of events is almost equally
interesting to follow, and hardly less
spectacular. Within a few minutes of
tbe Kentucky's call for help being
communicated the news bureaus had
knowledge of the fact, nnd the word
went round the world, hy telegraph
and by cable, thnt n hie steamer,
full lineage given, was fighting a
losing battle with thc storm of n
couple of hundred miles oft Cape Hut-
teres, and that a liner was speeding
towards her to take oft her crew, if
mayhap Providence wns merciful.
Bulletins were "flashed" over the
wires, that is to say, they took precedence over ordinary news dispatches, and probably in little over an
hour nearly every daily newspaper ia
tbe world had the news, lu the
great centers no doubt "extra" editions were produced by thc cord, and
tbe man on the street was able to
follow tho spectacular race to the
disabled leviathan wallowing In the
billows. Apart from the extra editions, the regular evening papers all
over the eistera half of the continent
were in the bauds of their renders a
considerable time before the Alamo
actually reached the Kentucky. In
Oreat ilrtti.tn the lirst bulletin must
have caught the regular evening papers, and the news that the Alamo
bad succeeded in her mission was no
doubt announced in the late editions.
Under varying conditions, the news
was disseminated more or less to the
Whole world while the drama was
still lu progress. Mankind wus en
rapport with the situation while it
was still at its cruix; turned the
leaves of the llrst acts before the cur
tain bad rung down on finale on the
ocean's stage. It is nothing new for
a distant battle or other great ov
cuts to Imi efficiently reported to the
world while it Ih still in progress,
but In this cose there were no spectn*
U>i*s, no correspondents, only the no-
torn, and the wireless,
"Little ether wave, carry my nies
sags," says, man; the coils hark and
spark, and It Is done. If the message
be big enough, the world hear-i II.
•ud If it be human enough, the
world's heart Is wrung with sympa
lly way of giving a glimpse into
the way the world's news Is gathered
for a dally newspaper, the various
bulletins and dispatches received, are
given below.
The hour ut which the Kentucky
sent out the distress cnll was not
communicated in Friday's dispatches,
but It was probably before noon. At
all aveot the first Intimation was re
ceived at a little ufter 11 o'clock thai
morning, in tho shape, of a bulletin
from tbe Associated Press, and read
as fol Iowa:
"Charleston, H, 0., Fob, 4, The
