As tlic Titanic Sank Human  Nature
Asserted Itself ln Screams and
WASHINGTON, April 23���Because
of contusion at yesterday's -esslon of
the senatorial subcommittee which Is
Investigating the Titanic disaster, the
scene of the committee's Inquiry was
shitted today from the commodious
caucus room in the senate office building to a smaller room.
Here 500 furbelowed, frilled women
many carrying lunches so as r.ot to
lose their positions of vantage during, the noon recess of thc committee,
fought for admittance. Less than 100
of their number succeeded in passing
the doors. Only diplomats, senators
anj their wives or other relatives and
reports were admitted.
Herbert Plttman, third officer of the
Titanic, recited the final trials of the
great liner at Belfast Loch before the'
vessel made  her  first and  fatal  trip   Board;
The Fraser River Must Not Bo Dis.
criminated Against In Any Ar.
The following resolution proposed
by Mr. P.H. Vidal, chairman of the
Navigation Committee and seconded
by Mr. W. H. Gilley, was passed al
the last meeting of the New Westminster  Board  of Trade:
"Whereas this Board is Informed
that it is proposed to remove the lightship from the entrance to the ship
channel of the Fraser River, to be
replaced   by a  gas  buoy;
"And whereas, the lightship ivas
originally placed in this position for
the special benefit of ihe Fraser lliver,
and at tht instance of the New Westminster   pilotage   authority,   and   this
across the Atlanlc.
Pinnum's Testimony.
Third Officer Plttman. admitted
that the Tltahic had been warned that
icebergs were prevalent, but said he
did not see any on the Sunday of the
disaster. He declared that in his 14
years' experience as a ship's officer
he had only seen one Iceberg until
the Titanic disaster. Then Plttman
went on to describe the difficulty in
ascertaining the presence of icebergs,
and explained the difference between
the northerly and southerly routes.
"I saw no ice until Monday," Pitt-
man said. "When I was in one of the
life-boats and again when we were
taker, aboard the Carpathia. There
probably were half a dozen Icebergs
around, most of them being about 150
feet high."
Plttman was certain that at the
time ot the collision First Officer Mur.
dock was on the bridge watching for
Their Morbid Curiosity.
I'ittman started his testimony ln a
laconic  and   brusque   manner,    Com-
"And whereas this Board is doubtful of the expediency of the proposed
change in the location of the lightship;
"Resolved that this Board' protests
against any such change being made
unless recommended by the New
Westminster pilotage authority, and
that a copy 0f this resolution be sent
to the Hon. Minister of Marine and
Mr. J.  D. Taylor, M.P.
In seconding the motion, Mr. Gilley
said he had discussed the proposed
change with a number of shipmasters
plying to and from the Fraser, and
they were one and all emphatic in
their assertions that the change would
work serious disadvantage to the river
shippir.g. So far as ships ln the Gulf
were concerned, the'present location
was equally good, and with ihe addition of a good compressed air foghorn, which the Board had l"ng since
asked for. would give every satisfaction.
Mr. J. D. Taylor. M.P., said the

inerUS 0n-h'8.St.0J-'-1_tL-:ere^_'d|b,e._-   The    lightship   had   been   put   In   Its
every part of the room. Then the
committee began questioning him on
the scenes on the Titanic when it was
found that there was no hope of saving the vessel. Plttman's demeanor
underwent a complete change, and In
a choking voice he begged the committee not to press him regarding the
death cries 0f the trapped victims.
"The prayers and moans of the pas-
present position because a small buoy
waa found to be entirely insufficient;

authorities had agitated and worked

Women spectators wept and the
senators composing the committee
shaded their eyes as Plttman described the scenes attendant upon the
sinking of the "unslnkable" Titanic.

I.adner,   B.C.,   April   --rd.
Mr. F. J. Mackenzie, the popular
M.P. P. for the Delta, ia delighted
with the result of his visit to Victoria,
where he spent two days in consultation with Premier MoBrlde and the
Hon. W. K. Ross, Minister of Lands,
with regard to the proposed acquirement of one square mile of land lo-
cated about three and a half miles
south of New Westminster ar.d representing one of the most beautiful as
well as one of the richest strips of
timber land in the province, for park
purposes. Before leaving for home
he was given the assurance of both
the Premier and Mr. Boss that they
would use their best endeavors in
such a manner as will facilitate the
wishes of the Delta people.
Mr. .Mackenzie is enthusiastic about
the idea of having this section of land
reserved for park purposes. He declares that there was no finer aggregation of timber in the country than
was to be found within that square
mile. Both the Inter-provincial and
Pacific highways traverse the ground,
and he claims that there is no spot
ln the whole of the province that
proves so alluring to the eye of the
tourist. Being situated about four
miles from the water It has been
saved so far from the fate of good
timber within easier access of transportation, and naturally Mr. Maeken-
| zle is anxious to have it handed over
to the people for park purposes before the ever-increasing facilities for
logging It renders it a mots ea��y prey
to the commercial instinct than lt is
at present.
The land comprised in the proposed
j park is all in possession of the Crown;
the timher on it. however, is leased,
and it is claimed that It will be necessary for the Provincial Government,
should the legislative body adopt the
Idea, to expropriate the lease-holders
and then apply t,, the Dominion Government for the land.
i The Premier was greatly pleased
with the idea of having a park located in that section of the country.
atld Mr. I loss Joined in expressing
gratification at having the matter j
brought before the attenton of the I
Government. The Importance of having such a pnrk preserve right at th*
Western gateway of Canada, as lt
were, appealed to the strongly, and
without committing themselves to the
fulfilment of promises that might
prove beyond their Jurisdiction they
gave Mr. MacKenzie to understand
that the matter would be taken up
at once with the authorities at Ottawa, so that no time would be lost
In having the lease-holders expropriated and the land preserved in all
Its virgin splendor.
Mi. MacKenzie was enthusiastic
over his description of the proposed
park. De declared that not oply was
it most haoollv nUua'Cd to be of th<
very best advantage from an advertising point of view from the entire
province, hut it wns representative of
the very best timher in the country.
Great specimens of cedar, fir, and
spruce are to be found ln abundance,
together with magnificent samples of
practically all the other members of
the tree family kin to the Western
part  of  the  American  continent.
"So strikingly beautiful Is the place
that never a motor car comes In from
the south or goes out from the norm
but it is brought to a standstill at
Intervals while the occupants take In
the full beauty of the scene. The
proposed park section ls located on
the old Tale-Cariboo road and l*
rlnrbt   in  the  Way of travellers reganl-
Ipss ,,r which sign of the compass they
m iy be following. It Is only three
miles ind a half from New Westminster :iTill wtthin easy reach of Vancouver Ahd all the suburban districts
tributary to it. At a picnic ground it

round accessibility will compare with
any ,,n the continent As the representative of a growing cor.stluency I
recognize that now is the time to provide for the open spaces and I think
I may say without fear of contradiction that if the section of laud I have
referred to is handed over to the
people for park purposes, the Helta
country and all the lower mainland
will be iii possession of a rei-i'i n,oii
ground that one will have to travel
far to heat."

A careful canvass of the canned salmon situation for the year of 1912
would Indicate that there art a considerable number of new canner.es
projected for Alaska, more paiticular-
|y in the southeastern district, but as
fa as known at the present time, as
we see it, states the Pacillc Fisherman,

projected Plans will become a real.y.

prices which the people "f Bellingham are forced to pay tor fish caught

accustomed to buy at 10 to 2* cents a
fish, weighing from six to fifteen
pounds each, are now selling in local
