QUEBEC, June 17. The captain and the

particulars the statements made on the
stand yesterday by Captain Kendall of
the lost llnor. The first officer, Alfred
Tuftenes, who was in command of the

sisted that there was no explosion and
no sheet of flame from the side of the
Empress when It was struck, as Captain
Kendall had described.
The first officer admitted he had not
obeyed Instructions In falling to call his
captain from below when the fog shut
down Just before the collision. It was
the speed ot the Empress, he explained,
which caused the Storstad's bow to sink

In the negative. '
Tho witness admitted that the ship was
unloading at night at Montreal.
"Time is apparently important then,"
commented the attorney.
Tuftenes conceded that It seemed to
be. He denied that tho Storstad was
navigated in the fog for one hour and a
half prior to first seeing the masthead
lights of the Empress. When the lights
came Into view, he said, the Empress
was about six miles away and one and a
half points on the Storstad's port bow.

"Did you stop when the Empress blew
two long blasts?" said Asplnall.
"I did not hear them."
"That would mean It was stopping""
"Did you expect your ship would an

"Why didn't It?"
"The engines were not working long
enough to give her headway."

The witness said the Empress, when It
came out of the fog, was two ship's

he said they were, It looked to him now

"Seriously," said Mr. Asplnall, "as a

Bryan Finds Much
Opposition to His
WASHINGTON, June 17. Secretary
Bryan found considerable opposition In
the senate foreign relations committee
today to the treaties with Colombia and
Nicaragua. The secretary spent two
hours explaining them and making the
plea for their ratification and expects to
return within a few days to furnish ad
Objection was not confined to repub
lican senators. Some democrats ex
pressed disapproval of the terms of the
two pacts. Particular objection was
raised to the expression in the Colombia
treaty of the "sincere regreat" ot tho
United States that anything should have
occurred In connection with the partition
of Panama to mar friendly relations with
the United States and to the indemnity
of 825,000,000 to be paid to Colombia six
months after the treaty is ratified.
The committee decided to make public
diplomatics correspondence which pro-
ceded signing of the Colombian treaty.

The water right case was argued by W.

Mexico. The case is now In the supreme
court of New Mexico and briefs have
been filed there. Young Connell and
many of the older settlers have been
taking water for years from the Tularosa

ago a new company came in and sought

to legal controvery which has been pend

Colonel Roosevelt is
Told He Must Avoid
Speaking in Open Air
LONDON, June 17. Colonel Theodore
Roosevelt today consulted a throat spe
cialist, who, after examination, declared
his larynx in bad condition. The spe
cialist attributed this condition to the
overstrain undergone by the colonel at
the time of the last presidential cam
paign and to exposure in Braill.
The physicians said It would be Impos
sible for Roosevelt to undertake a con
tinuous campaign or to speak In the open
air during the next threo months. In
the meantime he advised him to make
only a few speeches.
-Colonel Roosevelt was the guest at
breakfast of the bishop of London, to
whom he expressed great Interest In his
work in the East End slums of London.
The colonel remarked:
'I am very little interested In dogmatic-
theology, but am very much Interested
In its practical application."
Afterward the colonel visited the Na
tional gallery and then lunched with Ar
thur J, Balfour, ormor unionist premier;
Prof. Gilbert Murray, reglus professor of
Greek at Oxford university; I'rof. John
Bury, reglus professor of modern his
tory at Cambridge university, and Colonel
Charles Radcllffe, the noted lion hunter.
In conversation with a number ot news
paper men, Colonel Roosevelt was asked
if he Intended to continue his work as a
geographer, to which he replied that he
had finished with it
When reference was made to the In
demnity of 125,000.000 to be paid by the
United States to Colombia, Colonel Roose
velt said he would much rather see the
money spent on a Panama exposition. The
colonel dined privately In the evening.

that an uproarious response of "noes"

that the convention could not transact

Unlike the threo other crews In the
race which started from Portland last
Thursday, Donaldson and Henderson did
not have to dodge tho spikes of pine
trees in coming down. But thoy had their
heaped-up share of hardships when thty

searched through their kits and found no

nearest stream and started following It
westward. At night the cold mountain air
cut them to the marrow of their bones.
They could not build a fire and had to
eat what canned food they had raw.
The eighteen-mile walk to Walker's

network of thick undergrowth and fallen
trees disputed every foot of the way.

at 8 o'clock last Friday morning on a
rocky slope of Table mountain, about
eighteen miles on a direct line from
