NEW, YORK, April 19—With the arrival of the Carpathfa at 9 o'clock la«t
right something rlef'nito of'the dreadful tragedy has(been,,received. All
told",there were' 2340 souls on the Titanic, of which, only 739 were, picked
up - by the Carpathia, andv these are
now [considered to" be' tho only survivors. , thus leaving the death toll at,
1601. , The atory of the rescued shows
that',there .was* practically no panic
when the order to lower"the boats was
feiven'and,that practically.all the' women and I'ch.ldren .were saved.
I The shock "when the steamer Btruck
the - berg'? was * not- terrifically, heavy,
although - the vessel?, was' going at
high speed.'. Five;of■ those rescued

exposure, but many of the women are

strument throughout tho evoning ho
was sendlnfe out warnings- to other
ships as,to the^unusual condition of
floes in the usual winter courso of At-
lantlo travel. '   All navigators agree
that the condition - waa unusual, that
the constant north-easterly gales -had
driven the Ice hundreds of miles further south than is usually to be expected at this time of the year.
'The Parisian carries only one wireless'operator. ,. He had been at hia
keys for eighteen houra.^wh«n he sent
his final message to the Titanic. He
then went to bed arid was asleep when
Phillips was frantically ■ flashing the
fateful "S.O.S." from the Carpathia.

had .received the "S.O.S." his ship
could have rushed to the scene.. Doubtless' she would have arrived there before .She Carpathia. ."' *■",, '

terrible danger. Many passengers
didn't grasp .-fully the meaning;of the
disaster until orders went forth "All

„*The following story of the end is
told by an eye witness who escaped:
" "Presently, about 2 a.m., as near
as Tcan remember, we observed her
settling very rapidly; .with "the bows

down,,and so it proved.'   She Blowly ,
tilted, straightened with stem verae-.

in the cabins arid saloons, which had
not-flickered for a moment since we"
left, died out and then came on again
for a single flaBh,. and finally went
out altogether.    At the same time tho
machinery roared down through tho,
vessel with a rattle'and roaring? that
could be heard for miles, the wierdest"
sound surely that could be heard,, or

1, lb?"per foot run, or .29oz.'pef cubic
foot, was spread ori the gallery and
ignited by means of a cannon, from
which was fired 10" oz. of powder.
..Instruments to measure the pressure'
and velocity obtained were inserted at
-various points. "Various lengths of

gallery was taken as the standard length, and with that the following effects
were produced: On exploding the igniting charge a cloud of dust was discharged from the end of the gallery,
and this was followed ,by a rumbling
sound, then, a further and large"cloud
was discharged, being accompanied
by a small fiame, which ignited ^ the
huge dust cloud' producing an immense
flame. When the clouds had dispersed the props were found strewn in
confusion.outside of the gallery, whilst
inside props lay in confusion and safety valves were blown out. This, however, did not really constitute the explosion, ..arid there was evidence to

instituted not only to demonstrate trie
explosibility butto find a remedy. The
obvious remedy was "no dust, no. explosion,", but the difficulties of removing "dust.,frorii dry and dusty mines
were so great that it was hardly practicable to accomplish it.    The Altofts

was to the lasting credit of the coal

In seeking n remedy theyhad indicated the- lines on which it- might   be
found, but, further experiments wSre

There;was a good company of members of the Yorkshire Deputies Society
at Hadsworth, to hear a lecture,by Mr
T. Bradley, B.Sc.   He said that' as it
would be quite impossible to go into all
the question of gases that evening, he
would ask his audience to regard the
lec.ufe as, an introductory one.     He
intended to go back to the origin   of
those things they were going to speak
about.'    To the' thoughtful student it
was not enough,to say there waB firedamp present in a mine'     He .wanted
to know where it came from' and; why
it was there.    It was' quite his idea
to instruct his hearers only for their'
work. .  What,he believed .of almost
equal importance was that men should
beinstfucted for their leisure, and he*
therefore,, intended to .depart a little
from a purely .mining lecture.    They"
were going to consider gas.    At one
time all gases were considered to be
modified''or'impure air.,  'The word
"gas" was invented in- the year 1600,
to, denote the seriform condition of
matter.    .It was the same as ghost,
arid was derived ■ from   the   German

Priestly just discovered oxygen in the

that the super-dreadnought the "Orion'

two minutes, and the,energy given off
was equal to the'.llftlng of 30 Orions a
foot high each time th<. ten guns were,
discharged, 'The elasticity of gases
allowed of their filling all space available to them.    Some gases wero heavier than the atmosphere, and laid near
tne floor. , .Two examples of this were
to be found ln the "Cave of Dogs" ln
-nod ok aeeBunt of dogs
bolng unable to,live In It, and "The
Valley of Death" In Java, whoro carbon-dioxide was ln such largo quantities as to cause death to any animals
going into it,    Tho lecturer kept his
hearers .deeply Interested by his explanation of tho molecule and tho way
prossuro of gases wero caused.     Ho
spoke of the many mysteries the scientist waB socking to solve, the greatest
of which was tho mystery of tho origin
of life.

nothing'is not a dream; lt is a reality;

then becomes a stern reality. It is' a

not necessarily all of them) in the posi.
I ioh that they understood exactly what
they desired, there, would be absolutely no difficulty in getting it, lieo.use
they would take it. , In the course of
the "hopeless" remarks by Delegate
Wheatley, the, question, wns asked—
"How is this going to'be accomplished?" I want to tell you that tho question can,'be answered by tho two simple words ."Take it." Might is right,
and no matter whnt scruples we may
have, no matter what we may' think
about justice 'and right, when the
whole question of equity Is riddled and
sifted we aro suro to arrive, at that
simple conclusion. Tho solution o£
tho problom, so far ns tho United Mlno
Workers are concerned, Is to got tho
might, nnd we certainly cannot hope
to obtain It by disintegration oi\ by
dlBorgnnizntlon. W conn only get it
by "education, .arid that Is tho policy
that should bo followed by ench nnd
ovory one who Is.Rlncore In his efforts
to bettor tho conditions of the workers,"
"Sv'-iilo this matter hns been dlsciiBS-
od on (>lhe floor of this Convention, I
bollovo wo havo all roallzod, nnd that
evon tho delegates from Mlchol havo
roallzod, that wo aro bound by certain

place ourselves, bn a-'fj-rmer"'footing
in "the industrial and economic field.
'Dealing nowvwjt__: the' questions that
I'asked,"; I want to. point""out_ that the
substances of'the first'twb«questions
have a considerable effect, on' the labor market,"which h'asV.in-turn/a'dir.
ect affect on-.our wages.,-'or "on the
price of labor .'power.-.:*.-.The more of
that*commodity.there is"tha.Ms itri'.m-
ployed, the more or it'tlwW-. js offered
for sale.i .The' greater the proportion
unemployed j tb employed labor power,
aud the more our- wages. are forced
down and our conditions made worse.
Under these circumstances* I can readily seo that there.would be no object
gained by' the adoption of the principles of this resolution. That same*
unemployed labor power could be used
against us with very drastic and telling effects, and It la. that same factor
ot .unemployed .labor power that"* affects
oiir effort's at all times in our attempts
to better our conditions;
With regard to tlie, two latter ques-
tions, I may.state that I myself can see
absolutely, nothing to be'gained by formulating a policy here that would p?e-
vunt'the signing of contiact-. in con-'
formity with those already sighed.vin
connection with-any new locals that
we might .organize. It has already
.been stated on'the floor of this .Convention that- it would; be a practical
impossibility to keep,men working'under conditions" that were impossible, in
spite:of any contract- they might be
working under, and" that whether such
contract were regarded as sacred or
not, when conditions became such that
tliey could no' longer lie borne, , the
contracts,would be. ignored. .That
position has been taken in this District on previous occasions, and with
or without resolutions of the\ nature
of the'one. now'under, consideration,
or in spite' of 'resolutions of any kind,
that same course will be followed on
future^occasions.- All the contracts
we have will not force' the operators
to work-their, mines and find employment for their slaves - each .and every
day those^slavesdeslre tb work. The/
can close'down their mines for a year
If they feel so.inclined, because-there
are other, /mipes that will fill the mar?
kets, and seeing, that" most- laws in
modern times, and' most laws for" all
time, in , fact,'since "the system has
beenTin operation, arebascd upbn~pro7
perty rights, and-guaranteeing to the
individual*a'control of that,property,
then, surely',we may put ourselves in
the-same position with regard to the
only property we possess, and may,' if
wo so desire, and are not forced by
other, circumstances, ' withhold that
commodity foi* sale, seeing It is our
own property.'
I am, therefore, at a loss to see how
nny action,that this Convention can
take could possibly, prevent that being
done, .or affect the' matter In any way
whatever, provided that the'men working under such contracts decided that
tliey were not going to .work' under
them any longor. However, at this
particular time I wnnt to point out
that tho members generally in this District dp not want to suspend work. As
a matter of fact thoy, are howling to

mentioned in the joint report of Secre-
tary7Cari;er,-'and .'myself that the ar-
*r.Vngpmeht'arrived''at with the International-Executive depended on the
promise ■ of 'the ..resident, off.cers. ■  in
the first .-'place .we, took the* matter up
with/President White, "and'afterwards
'wjt-i- Secretary • Perry*." then" again we
took the matter'up-with the three resident, officers together, vFollowing that
the matter' eame'-before the International" Executive. Board,1 and-.Prestdent

mho from them again ..that-, they will
do justice by Ditsrict, 18, and carry
out t.'ie obligations in their understanding with Secretary Carter and myself.
I, think that should be quite .sufficient
to bring before your minds the peculiar position we would be in -with tlie
International, Executive Board.,   The
International Executive Board are care
ful not to place themselves in any po'si-
tion from.which it would be impossible
for them to retract; and'while they
are not .absolutely compelled to help
us out in this matter, ■ I do not see
where we could'justly-'claim .that they
had not dealt with us in a spirit of justice, if they refused to'^acknowledge
tlielr financial .obligations.     It is an
absolute fact that, so far as the mine
workers in,Canada are concerned, they
have benefited'financially to the extent of possibly much^more than a'million dollars (possibly nearer a million
and a half, dollars)  over and 'above
what has been sent-.'from' Canada to
the International   Organization,   "and
still, they * pledge themselves to send
more" money, and'when we'come to
look at the matter from the materialist's point of view, speaking as one in?
dividual in this District, then dollars
are better-inside" of,.my pocket than
out of it;   , I" don't wantvtb dig Into
my pocket ,for. ten dollars" If I can help,
it, and*I certainly"dont', want to "force
that';same obligation' on the members
of this District as" a whole?   ■
The mere consideration of money at
the .present time. is. a( mistaken idea
so far as materialism is concerned,
and I want'to tell you'that,those" who
advanced that' -particular • idea r'hadl not-
studied the. matter*very carfeully.
that it is ^monetary, consideration at
this, time and that it is ..money that'
prompts our'actions; there are many
other things that enter into the matter.
Speaking as an individual I might say
that, as an .officer'of this organization it is to my< material interest that
this organization of the .United Mine
Workers be preserved ln tills District;
it is to my material interest that we do
not become disorganized, because then'
I might have ;to' submit to worse conditions than I have to submit todny. If
we desire at; this time to realize the
position we would be in, we do not
havo to' go very far below thb surface
beforo we come to .the conclusion
that it might be infinitely worse. The
realization of that does not require n
very great stretch of Imagination, in
spito of Brother Whoatloy's 55 cents
for nine shifts; nt tho present timo
thoy nro not all down as low as that,
but, under other circumstances there
is just a possibility thnt thoy might
nil get it. On tho othor hand wo

■ The-process has" attained slich proportions in the United States "and
has-aroused'sucli world" wide attention that tlie similar process coine
bn in Canada has attracted little attention from Canadians but"tlie
indications are that the doom of the small producer and merchant-will
be accomplished in much shorter order and more completely than has
been the, case in the country to the south of us. ,For ono thing Canada is next-door to thc country in which capitalism jms reached a
higher pitch of development than any oilier; where the most scientific
methods of machine.production have been more generally in vogue
for a longer time, and in which the productivity of the individual
worker,- due to the foregoing, far surpasses that of othor nations. '
,*' American capital, seeking investment for the surplus produced by
the American workers over and above the value received in wages
has to look abroad for new fields to conquer, and fhids at its very
door a now country, with' natural resources of fabulous extent in
many cases offering exceptional opportunities for production on a
grand scalo, rendering thc elimination of the small competitor an easy
matter, '   . . '       . A
In tho United Stales largo capital has boon a growth, in Canada it
is nn important, nnd in that fact lies thc justification for tho staled
mont that tho development of Canada will bo more rapid and complete than wns lho snmo process in tho former country, f0]. y10 incom.
ing ei_pit.il will have, or rather lias, at its back, all n,0 accumulated

sentiment and institutions Hint linvo hnmporod, to somo oxtont lho

''The restilts"are'eifiinentlyfavdrablo
to Australia, and seem to Prove that
tho cost of ■ living in that country Js
cheaper than in- most Parts of Europe,
not, only relatively to current rates .of
wages'-but even absolutely In certain
important- departments of household
expenditure. Thus, In a comparison
with Germany and the United States.
Mr. Knibbs shows Hint in tho average
Australian household, when housing,
food, fuol and lighting nnd clothing are
provided-.for, .0.82 per cent of tho
family.income is available for other
expenditure as ngalnst 30.70 per cent
in Germany, and 25.00 per cent In the
"United, States', This margin roprosonts
what may ho'termed'tho "margin of
comfort,",which, it will thus ho seen,
is considerably higher in Australia
than In the American Uoptiblic, Moreover, the figures in tho cnRc. of the
latter aro bnsed on conditions in 1907.
since which yoar prices hnvo advanced considerably In America.
Wlien noto ls taken of the average

poin ted ?out'tbat one .of the'rarest geological paradoxes in America .-is be-,
ing worked" out;- through > the ba'c__-fir:
ing of ;the famous'burning mine near
Summit -Hill. ".The fire below- has
been burning about'sixty years," but
it has reversed its course, and science,'
by the aid of which'It was hoped ot
extinguish ■ it," is said" to" be the direct
cause. The"story as recounted is,as
follows: "■ y    .-,
"President Lathrop, ot 'tlie -Navigation Company, conceived the.idea of
coping with the great' internal fire
by sinking aTsolid concrete wall, fifteen feet, thick, down into the- earth,
even deeper than1 the depth of the
deepest^ veins. This' gigantic, under-
taknig took several years, and cost the
company several'million dollars- but
while it has checked the fire from eating its' way further west, 'the hidden
flame tails to, die' out, but is following other veins backward. It Is now,
burning-in the direction, of Summit
Hill, that is, eastward in the opposite
direction from'its trend ..six decades
ago. It has already reached Mc-
Creedy's Colliery, the inside of which
is one mass offire^and which" had to
go abandoned .more,than avmonth.agp.
It" is>feared:that _•_. "will-keep, b^"h\\int
ing" until it reaches.' Su_nm_'t.?HiIl^art'.
of which is known.tp be underlaid.with-

surely marked-for destruction'by the
subterranean"fire*.[7 ~j ' 7A ■ \"A""
- -"At niany'. places, vapour,,'steam and'
smoke, are issuing';, fronV, crags Jn tlje

The surface' of the earth is" devoid' of
all ,snow" and.'icQ,. as snow meits> as
soon as it falls' over Ihe-burning area,
and the surface in many, places is just
warm enough- to enable tbe grass and
wild flowers to grow. .The vein which
the underground fire, is following'is
supposed to end at the southern section of Summit Hill, the place where
anthracite was first discovered .by
IPhilip Gunter, the lonely hunter,, ln
1791. -When the? fire reaches that
point,. which may - require years yet,
it is believed it will burn itself out.
."As a result of the turnabout of the
underground fire, the mouth of James

A v . ., ,. ,.    UNITED STATES,
A preliminary^* statement of cthe re**-
suits of the thirteenth- census enumeration regarding'illiteracy in the United
States has "just been made public, by.
the bureau "oil census. - The statement
shows that in 1910. there were 71,580,-
270 persons ten years, of; age or' over
in' the;Unlted" States; of w.iiom 5,517,-:
608 were.unable to read or write,* constituting 7.7 per cent of the population.
The native' whites, who, constitute
nearly'75 per* cent, of the entire population,, had. the smallest number of illiterates,1 1,535,580, or-3 per'cent; the
foreign-born "whites had 1,165,519 illiterates, or 12,8 per cent; the colored
had"'' 2,331,559. illiterates, or 30.5 p.c.
The gain in population from 1900 to
1910"was?13,640.456,lbut the number.of
illiterates fell off 663,461. -There waa
consequently a delcine in the percentage, of illiterates from" 10.7 4to 7.7^-per
cent of the aggregate population." \y.
