LONDON. May a.-The attack on
Sydney Buxton, president of tha board
of trade. In connection with Titanic dis
aster waa renewed In the House of Com
mons this afternoon, when the sleekness
of the board of trade waa severely
handled. Major Martin Archer-Shee. a
London unionist member, started the at
tack by moving the reduction of t.ie
salary of Mr. Buxton, who. he declared
had been convicted by the "damning fact
that ha had neglected to carry out the
recommendation of hi own committee."
Chargea of slumbering dllatortness, ab
solute negleot and unconcern were hurled
at the board of trade by various speakers
Lord Charles Berestord bitterly com
plained that tha board of trad had not
attempted to carry out Ita own regula
tions until after the Tltanle tragedy. He
demanded the appointment of a new ad
visory committee to roe board, whose
object should be to render ships able
to float after they had received. a bad
wound.. He Indicated that water tight
comportments with smaller doors In the
bulkhead, which would be more easily
closed were a mora Important question
than lifeboats, aa there were many days
at aea, when It waa Impossible to launch
lifeboats with safety.
This waa also ths view' of Richard
Holt, who declared "boats are a rotten
reed, almost certain to fall In the hour
of need." He suggested the provision
of bulkheads without any door at all.
