LONDON. .My .-The attorney gen
eral, sir Rufus Isaacs, today addressed
The wreck commission which Is Investi
gating the loss of the White Ktar liner
Titanic, setting forth the facta as under
stood by the government and laying
-Kcisl emthajln on the evidence that a
!eed of twenty-one knots was main
tained after the warnings of Ice ahead
had been received, right up to the mo
ment of collision.
When the court opened Lord Mersey,
who heads the commission, granted per
mission to President Lewis of tha Sea
men's union and to an attorney for tha
iminf Mercantile guild to participate
in the proceedings.
Tha union is a new organisation com-
.rosed of I.OiiO Southampton sailors. Two
hundred and twenty-eight of Ita members
were employed on the Titanic and of
1hee only seventy-seven survived. The
offict-rs of the Titanic were. members of
t he guild. The Inquiry Is likely to ex
tend over several weeks and will be dS'
nted largely lo technical details.
The court today displayed the greatest
inierett In the warnings of lea which
the Omanl liner C'aronla and the White
tar steamer Baltic sent to the Titanic
i n the day of tha disaster, April II.
Lord .Mersey asked: "Am 1 right In
supposing that It ran Into tha Ice region
"Yea." replied the attorney general.
Sir Rufua said that the Titanlc's cans
city was 1,547 persons and that it car
ried fourteen lifeboats, two cutters, four
collapsible lifeboats, accommodating a
total of 1.117 persona and l.&6 life belts.
The vessel carried 1.31 paasengers and
fl persona In Its craw.
I It waa fitted with fifteen bulkheads
and a number of water-tight doors, be
ing designed to float In the event of any
two adjoining- compartments being
flooded, under which condition tha top of
the bulkheads would be two. and one-half
, 0T three fe.i above water. -
i.nlmm at Trreaty-Oae'Kaaia.
Tha Titanlc's speed,, the attorney gen
eral said on April .14 was twenty-nni
knots sit hour, which speed was never
lessened up to the time of the collision.
During that day the, Caronla and the
Baltic had sent wireless messages to the
Titanic slslltut thst li-ebergs. "growlers"
and "fielders" were in Ita track.
"Nevertheless." continued Sir Rufus,
"after dark the Titanic ran right ahead
at twenty-one knota an hour, the night
being clear, but with no moon."
He aald ha had served notice upon Kir
Robert Ftnlay, chtrf counsel for the
White Star Steamship company, who Is
representing the line at tbe present In
quiry, that the government considered
this fact of extreme Importance so that
Sir Robert might bring evidence to the
contrary If he had It.
Three Mala laaaes.
Sir Rufus announced" that particular
attention would be given to these three
The Titanlc's speed after the warnings
of Ice had been received; an Insufficient
number of lifeboats for the persons car
ried by the steamer; the construction of
the water tight compartments,
lie gave a detailed analysts of the num
bers of saved and loat by classes and
sexos. and indicated that he considered
t.mt the dixportlonate number of first
class passengers rescued should be a
matter of Inquiry. -
"One striking figure," he said, "la that
all except five women of the first-class
were saved or had an opportunity of
being saved, some refusing to leave thetr
hufbands. One fact that atanda out Is
that a very large number or men of the
first class were saved. It may be neces
sary liter to analyse these figures more

In recommending this radical change,
the twenty-four active bishops stipulated
that the church, however, should not be

from today. Instantly everyone knew
that the cause of the black man was be

Lucss spoke eloquently for his resolution

others. The main contention In support
of the resolution waa that with white
bishops to oversee colored work, the
bishop does not come Into direct con
tact with the real life of the negro. It
Is urged that a colored, man who can
share the humble home of hla black
brother and who will tide In the "Jim

white bishop dislikes to mingle freely
with colored people and even if he were
entirely willing he would be severely
criticised by the southern white people.
