In connection with the transfer of th

that the power of the ente In federal

The committee devoted Its entire day
to an investigation ot the connection of
th wireless with the disaster. II. T.
Cottam, the operator of the Carpathla,
was the first witness. Senator Smith
sought to establish certain testimony he
hsd given on the stand yesterday and this
soon was ended. Then came the tar
witness of the day.

tales of long hours at low wsges and days

This Inexperience and the nental con
dition of the yi'.'Ug operators were the
! two points on which Penalor Kmlth bore
' persistently. He had put Cottam
through a gruelling examination In which
the youth testified that he had not slept
more than eight or ten hours between
Kunday night, when the Titanic called for
help, and Thursday night, when the vessel
docked here. Bride's story waa one that

He said the first vessel to answer was
th Frankfurt of the North German

the imperative appeal of the sea he called

Sneator Smith expressed aton!hment
at the statement. He repeatedly pressed
the witness to explain why the aid of a
vessel many miles nearer a sinking ship

answer by saying he did not know, that
