Issue, which, unfortunately, has received
nearly all of tha newspaper publicity.
This statement about charges for corn
was made merely to Illustrate a general

tha broblem of tha cost of feed In the
stock yards I would not have failed to
go Into tha question of what becomes of

Tho statement about the price eharjred

Boats Full of Women
Still Fast to Ship
When It Went Down
LONDON, May 10. Survivors of tha
Lusltanla, who arrived In London today,
all had thrilling experiences. James
Brooks of New York said:
"On the decks of the doomed vessel
absolute cslmness prevslled. There wss
nothing resembling a panic. I did not
notice anw concerted effort to distribute
life belts and I waa unable to obtain one.
I (stepped Into one of the lifeboats, but
tho list waa so great that the davits
pinched tha gear, rendering It Impossible
for us to get away 'before tha ahlp went
down. Bo I dived Into tha water.
"I turned around to watch the great
ship keel over. Tha monator took a sud
den plunge and I saw a crowd still on Its
decks and boats filled with helpless
women and children glued to its side,
Many never rose to tha surface, but the
sea rapidly grew black with the figures

Brmks, with four other men, managed
to get Into a collapsible boat. They saved
thirty people. .
