It Is believed that the thirty-seven paa
wengera who were rescued Include every
person who was on the opn deck of the j
Dtx when the little craft plunged down
ntern foremost into 100 fathoms of water.
It Is doubtful whether It can be raised.
The collUslon occurred while the sound

after. the boata had been steaming within

With the Dlx and th Impact was very
slight. The Dlx waa struck abaft or a mid

the decks Into the water; women screamed
and officers and men called orders that
could hardly be heard above the din. The
pawtengera from the Dlx who could swim
made their way to the aides. of the Jeanle
and were dragged aboard. Th Jeame was
not moved until after al. who had reached

cruised about, picking up several who had
managed to stay above water. It was after
10 o'clock beforo the Jeanie left the scene
of the catastrophe and steamed to th Vir

Tbe Jean' of the Alaska Cojuit company
had finished unloading at the Great North-

for Tacunifc shortly before S o'clock. Just
about the time the Dlx left the flyer dock
for Port Blakeley.
There were no paM.-ngers on the Jeanle.

Nine conversions marked the eecouJ
night's session of the great mission In pro
gress at the Auditorium.
The Inexperienced In revival work might
look on this as a small number, but not
so Dr. Torrey and his associates. Their
years as evangelists have taught them that
quick results do not always come, and
that sometimes the grratrst spiritual revo
lutions take place In towns wnere the con
verts for the first few nights can be counted
on the Angers. They say that Omaha lias

not the number of professions on the open

cess In this work, but on tho extent that
the spirit of revival works abroad. I can
seo It spreading in Omaha and filtering the
homes of all clatses of people alike. The
churches of the city are fairly enthused
"Down in Nashville, from which we have
Just come, the Immediate results of the
first few nights were less than here; In
fact, there were few conversions In th
first week. As the month advanced they
kept coming, more and more, and on th.
last two days of the meeting Jo people
professed Christianity. On the next to tin

L.H girls, weeping and praying, gave tiiein
mives to God. You eati'l tell by th way

in marked contrast to the thou
sands who crowded the Auditorium
Sunday night and the hundred
who wero turned away, the big
building was between half and two-thirds
full. Dr. Torrey expects the attendance
to increase each night until by the last
of the week r'sny hundreds will not be
able to gain entrance.
A large portion of thoea present last
night came early for the song service axd
stayed until 9:20, when the meeting waa

Dr. Torrey began by asking the women
to removo their hats.
"I suppose you are compelled to remove
your hats In the theaters, and It Is a good

Some Remarkable Conversions.
Dr. Torrey's discourse was full of stories
of conversions which have come within his
experience in many lands. One was par
ticularly Interesting. It waa the story of
a pallor who attended a mission meeting
In Boston and carried away ln hta pocket
a card banded to him by one of th work
ers. Out In mldocean, between America
and England, he fell from a matt and
broke his leg. As he lay In bed, he began
to look around and feel around for Some
