New York, April 19.���Testifying at
the in iuiry Into the loss of the Titanic,
Mr. Marconi; chairman of the British
Mai conl company, said that operates
must take their orders from the captain oi ike ship oi which they are employed.
'uu tiie regulations prescribe whether one or two oj.eratois should Do

"Ves. On ships line the late Titanic
and the Olympic, two are cai ried,''
said Mr. Marconi. "The Carpathia, a
smaller boat, can les one. Tao Carpathia wiieless apparatus ls a short
distance equipment.
"The maximum efficiency of the
Carpathia wiieless, I should say was
200 miles. The wireless equipment
on tl.e Titanic was available for 500
mile3 luring the day time and lonu
miles at night."
"Do jou consider that the Titanic
was equipped with the latest Improved
wireless apparatus ?"
"Yet: I should say that It had the
veiy best."
Senator Smith asked If amateur or
rival concerns Interfered with the
wireless communication of the Carpathia.
"1 am unable to say. Near New
York 1 have an Impression, there was
pome slight Interference, but when
the Carpathia was farther out In
touch wi h New York and N.va S o.U,
thero was no Interference."
"Did you hear the captain of the
Carpathia say in his testimony thai
they caught this distress message
from the Titanic almost providentially ?" asked Senator Smith.
"Ves, I did. It was absolutely providential."
"Is there any signal for the opera
tor li' be U not at his post ?"
"I think theie Is none," said Marconi.
"Ought it not to be incumbent Upon
Ships to have an operator always at
'.I'e key ?'
' \es, but the -ship owners don't like
to carry two Operators when they can
get along' with ono.   T.ie smaller boat

what the ship could make

"..���.aiu.any, at some time."
"What was the weather mat night?"
queried Senator Smith.
"Llear and fair."
"Were you anxlou3 about ice?"
"No sir."
"And jou put on no additional lookouts '!"
"So sir."
"We talked together generally for
20 or 25 minutes ahout when we might
expect to get to the ice fields. He
left the bridge, I think, about 25 minutes after 9 o'clock, and ln our talk
he told me to keep the ship on her
course, but if I was in the slightest degree doubtful about conditions developing to let him know at once."
"Did you keep the Titanic cn her
course then ?" Senator Smith asked.
"Yes."
"When did you next see Captain
Smith ?"
"When I came out of the officers'
quarters after the Impact," Light-
uolder replied. i
"Then Captain Smith did not return
to the bridge beiore your watch expired ?"
"1 uld not see him."
"What time did you leave ?"
"I turned over the watch to First
Officer Murdock at 10 o'clock."
"Dou you recall now just what   the
Titanic's position was when you turn-
el over the watch to Murdock?"
Wonderfully Clear Night.
"I don't now, sir, but I did know at
the time. We talked about the Ice
mat we had heaid was afloat and
remember we agreed we should reach
tne reported longitude oi the ice hoes
about 11 o'clock, an hour later. At
tuat time the weather was calm and
clear. 1 remember we talked about
��� '������ distance we could see. Ue could
see stars lu the horizon, It was very
dear."
"Did jou sse Mm dock after that?"
"Yes, when 1 came out of the officers' quarters after the Impact, Murdock was on tne bridge, he on on<p

D. Yviauiei, whonc nusbanu, a wed

son were o. owned ln tne Titanic
wreck, said sue saw Captain Smiin
jump trom the uil.ige Into the sea and
that a moment previous she had seen
another ouicer send a revolver huhet
.mo his brain.
"Mr. Widener and I had retired for
the night," said she, "when tne shock
of crashing into the lceber, occurred.
We thought little of lt anu did not
leave our cabin. We must have remained theie an hour before becoming
tearful. Then Mr. Widener went to
son Harry b room and brought him to
our cabin. Harry then went on deck
and hurried lack and told us we must
go on deck. Mr. Widener and Harry,
a few minutes later went on deck and
aided the olflcers who were having
trouble with steerage passengers.
That was the last I saw of my husband or son.
"I was put Into a life boat. As the
boat pulled away from the Titanic I
saw one of the officers shoot himself
n the head and a few minutes later
saw Captain Smith Jump from the
biidge Into the sea."
Ble* Away Funnels.
Hugh Wollner, a son of Thomas
Wollner, It.A., of London, says thero
were two explosions before the Titanic
sank. He believes he was the last
person to leave the Titanic. To a
ilend he said:
"Not long after the ship struck there
came the first big explosion; then, a
moment later, the se;on:l. lt was tho
second explosion that did the most
damage. It blew away the funnels and
tore a big hole in the steamer's side.
"The Titanic careened to one side
and passenrc-r3 making for the boats
were srllled Into tlie water."

Farmers Disagree.
Two Delta farmers were litigants in
a case heard by His Honor Judge Mclnnes in the Westminster county
court yesterday afternoon. Mr. K.
Goudy sued Mr. Thomas Wilson for
$20.90, while defendant put in a
counter claim. The dispute arose
over threshing operations in which
each party had ' done work for the
other. Tbe action was dismissed
with costs, and the counterclaim was
also dismissed without costs. The
plaintiff was represented by Mr. J. H.
Grant, and Mr. H. L. Edmonds represented the defendant.

Auction Sale Dispute.
The case of Trapp vs. Prescott
came up before the court of appeal
on Thursday. The defendant purchased a team of horses for $460 from
a Japanese at one of Mr. Trapp's auction sales ln this city. As the Jap
wanted the full amount at once and
Prescott did not have it with him,
Mr. Trapp came to his aid by advancing the money for a few days, Prescott giving him a note for same. In
the meantime a Mr. Brooks, of Vancouver, came along with a lien note
on the horses, having sold the team
to the Jap sometime before and not
having received the money in the
transaction. Mr. Prescott then wished to cancel the note held by Mr.
Trapp, taking the stand that the latter sold the team and he should have
guaranteed title to same. Hence the
suit. The county court gave Judgment
to the plaintiff which was appealed.
Tho hitrher court reserved decision.

Excitement.
Portland, Ore., April 19���Lieutenant
F. B. I'phum, in charge of the recruiting station for the army in tbis city,
received telegraphic Instructions to
make a campaign to secure enlistments last night. The news, wnen
given publicity, caused considerable
excitement and rumors of trouble in
Mexico became rife.
The enlistment is reported to include every branch of the service, and
it looks ���� if the government were
making efforts to be in a position to
meet any sudden emergency. It Ib not
thought seriously that war is imminent, but it is regarded as significant
that these instructions should have
been issued Just at the present moment when it is known that relations
between the U. S. A. and Mexican gov-
endeavor    made    to
trade for both boats.
The lightship anchored on the sanct
heads at the mouth of tho Fraser and

from s;crn to bow, but knowing
nothing of what had happened, concluded some of the front compartments had filled and weighed her
down. I went down again to put on
warmer clothing und as I diessed
heaid an order shouted: ,
" 'All passengers on deck with life
belts on!'
"We all walked slowly up with
them tied on over our clothing, but
even then presumed this was a precaution the captain was taking and
that we should return ln a short time
aud tetlre to bed".   There was a total
ed on A deck. When they were to
uie level of B deck, where all the
ladies were called, the ladles got iu
quickly with the exception of some
who refused to leave their husbands,
ln some cases they were torn from
them and pushed luto the boats, but
in many instances they were allowed
to remain because there was no one
to insist that they should go.
"Looking over the side, one saw
boats from alt already in the water,
slipping quietly away Into the darkness and presently the boats near to
me were lowered and with much
creaking as the new ropes slipped
through the pulley blocks down the
90 feet which separate them from tne
water. An officer in uniform came
up as one boat was lowered and
snouted down:
"'When you are afloat, row around
to the companion ladder and stand
by the other boats for orders.'
"'Aye, uye, Bir,'��came up the reply
but I don't tiiink any boat waa able
to ovey the order.    When they wore
absence of panic nr any expressions afloat and had the oars at work the
of alurm and I suppose this can be condition of the rapidly settling boat
accounted for by the exceedingly
'calm night and the absence of any
sign of the accident. The ship was
absolutely still, and except for a gentle tilt downward which I don't think
ono person in ten would have noticed
at that time, no signs of the approaching disaster were visible. She
lay JiiEt as if she were waiting the
order to to on again when some
trifling matter had been adjusted.
But In a few momenta we saw the
cover... lifted from the boats and the
was much more a sight for alarm for
those ln the boats than on board the
Titanic. In common prudence the
sailors saw they could do nothing but
on the starboard side.'
Mr.  Beacley's   Chance.
"I was on the port side and most
of the men walked across the deck
to see if this was so. I remained
where I was and presently heard the
cn'l:
���' 'Aany more ladles?' Looking over
the side of the ship I saw the boat
No. 13, swinging level with B deck,
half full of ladles. Again the call
was repeated:
' Vi!.} more   ladles V Looking over
"I saw none come and -then one of
the crew looked up, said:
" Any ladles on your deck, air?'
" 'No' I replied.
" 'Then you had better Jump.'
"I dropped and fell ln the bottom
as they cried: 'Lower away!' As
the boat began to descend, two la lies
were pushed hurriedly through the
crowd on B deck and heaved over lt
to the boat and a baby of ten months
passed down after them. Down we
went, the crew calling to those lowering each end. to keep her level. 'Aft!'
'Stern!' 'Both together!' until we
were some ten feet from the water
and here occurred the only anxious
moment we had during the whole of
our experience from leaving the deck
to reaching the Carpathia.
A Dangerous  Moment.
"Immediately ' below our boat was
the exhaust of the condenser, a
huge stream of water pouring all the
row from the sinking ship to safety time from the ship's side, just above
as they expected that suction from i the water line. It was plain we
such   an  enormous  vessel   would  be ought to be away from this In order
more than usually dangerous to a
crowded boat mostly filled with women.
No  Panic on   Board.
"All this time there was no trace
of any disorder, panic or rush to the
crews allotted to them standing by ! boats and nd scene? of women sob-
and curling up the ropes whicb were bin? hysterically such as one gener-

down through the vessel with a rattle and a groaning that could be
heard for miles. But this was not
quite the end.
"To our amazement she remained
in that upright position for a time
which I estimated as five minutes
while we watched at least ISO feet of
Titanic towering above the level of
the sea und looming black against
the sky.
The Tragic End.
"Then with a quiet, slanting dive
sbe disappeared beneath the waters
And there wrs left to us the gently
heaving sea, the boat filled to standing room with men and women In

bitter cold.
"And then there fell on the ear the ���

What does the loss of tho Titanic
mean in the everlasting scheme of
things ? With ;all Its terrible loss of
life and attendant grief, I venture to

national feame in the west, Is about
the only solution left to the two
clubs in the league if they wish to
draw the gates as of old. The bickerings that have occurred between
this city and Vancouver over the appointment of referees has endangered
the game from a financial standpoint
and tlie managers of the two teams
Know It, too. Without the support of
the publlc, the Pacific league would
.soon go out of existence. While the
price of admission is smaller in the
east than on the coast, the crowds
tliat attend the games of the N. L. U.
are assured that the referee of the
game has been appointed beforehand,
and while any referee is Bubject to
n If.ukes, still they accept hls de-
c'sion   as   final.
Harry Cowan, the new. president
<���! the B. C. L. A. Is fully alive to
the present situation. He told the
delegates at the meeting held In Vancouver last Tuesday that the only
way to bring lacrosse back to the position It should hold, wns to appoint
an Impartial commission of three
men who will have the full say as to
who will lie the referee of the games
this coming season. "I would be
sorry," said Harry, "to be compelled
1^1 act In my official capacity, but you
cm take it from me, that lf you gen-
ikinen cannot a(;ree on uny definite
solution, then I Shall step In myself
;;nd act as I see fit, whether 1 antagonize myself with the Vancouver
club or the Westminster organization." The delegation from the local
club were solid for the commission
idea, although the proposition did not
emanate from this city. The local
���officials realize that there are scores
of people who would attend the
games both in this city and in Vancouver if they were assured that the
referee question was left to an Impartial body. The sporting public
will not stand for any wranglings as
io who will have charge of the games.

Follow Baseball Example.
What the public demand Is a commission after the pattern of the National Baseball Commission. Base-
kill players have a feeling of awe towards an "ump," tho public respects
the official, because lf they were to
cut loose with their pent-up feelings
���and they very often are tempted to
clo so���the National body would come
io the rescue, doling out penalties
ihat the players and the public would
lemember for many a day. There
are few men in this world who would
accept the duties of umpire, lf they
were not guaranteed fair play. Their
lives would continually be ln peril.
Tfter�� is no reason whatever why the
lacrosse game should not be governed after the same pattern. Another

Early Days Were Riotous Jolly Times
In the Upper Chamber.
When th third of our Georges came
to his crown the hungry legislator,
whether li ��� was coroncted or commoner, was glad, when hunger assailed him, t - broil his chop or steak
over the fir? which was always kepi
roaring in the adjacent Westminster
Hall; for in those day3 the peer had
neither kitchen nor cellar, and the
only alternative to the Westminster
Hall frying-pan was to make a tiresome journey to his own dining-room
or some distant hostelry.
And even when Bellamy came on
the seen-; in' 1773���that Bellamy for
one o.' whose succulent r>ie. Pitt called with his last breath���the noble
lawmaker was almost as remote from
a dignified meal suited to his rank;
for he must scramble in Bellamy's
kitchen, with a hungry horde of commoners, for a shilling sandwich and
a glass-of wine and water, for which
eighteenpence was demanded.
Dickens draws a graphic picture of
thi.; famous kitchen, in which peers
and M.P.'s ate their bread and cheese
and drank their beer together even in
his early days: "The large fire and
Toasting-jack at one end of the room,
the little table for washing glasses
and draining jugs at the other, the
deal tables and wax candles, the bare
floor, and the gridiron ever the fire."
And the two waiting-maids who ministered to their appetites, the sedate
"female in black," and the pert Jane,
thc "Hebe of Bellamy's," whom the
young members chucked under her
pretty chin, a familiarity to which
��hj would refort with a playful dig
with the handle of a fork.
Happy, free-and-easy limes these,
when the Lord Chancellor would suck
an orange on the Woolsack, and a
"belted earl" whiled away the tedium
of debate by cracking and eating nuts
under his lordship's nose.
Indeed, the Commons had a Kitchen
Committee and well-served dining-
rooms of their own long before the
peers bestirred themselves to follow
su:'t, and engaged one Joseph Bladen,
butler to Sir Augustus Clifford, as
"Minister of the Interior," thus inaugurating an era of more dignified
feeding.
So excellently did Bladen cater for
his noble proteges that before he had
; held his offlce a year the peers decided to give him a dinner on his own
account, and to present him with a
piece of plate in token of their gratitude. When Bladen was invited to
I choose his piece of silver, he promptly plumped for "A loving-cup; and,"
he added, "let it be big enough to
put me 'ead in it." And it was.
I Thus, some flfty years or more ago,
the Lords at last, like the Commoners, had kitchen and cellars of their
own, and were able to fare as becomes
the- wearers of coronets. Tales are
told of these early days���bow the
minor officials of the noble House
i used to hold riotous banquets when
; the peers were away, aid tripped it
gaily afterwards in thut august chamber, the "Moses" Room; and how four
peers once had a royal squabble over
the best way to cook a ::g of mutton
before the flre���knucklo-end up or
vioe versa.

Aldermen Curtis and Lynch, accompanied by. City Engineer Blackman,
waited uyon the Coquitlam municipal council on Thursday afternoon,
and inspected the worl; on the Pipe
Line Roal near the Junction, where
blasting operations are in contemplation. The city officials fear that
the blasting of stumps on the road
may seriously affect the water supply of New Westminster. The Oo-
tjultlam council on the other hand
maintain that the city when laying
their pipes siiould have removed the
stumps, and feel rather aggrieved at
what they consider the cavalier treatment mete'i out to Cociultlam by
New Westminster. The result of the
conference and inspection will be reported to the city council at their
next meeting.
