GIVING UP ITS DEAD
East River Swells Total of
Steamer Slocum Victims.
NINETY BODIES COME ASHORE
Coroner Begins His Inquiry Into the
Disaster Two Members of the
Crew Declare No Fire Drill
Was Ever Held.
KEW YORK, June 20. The list ot those
who perished on the General Slocurn Is
growing at an ' alarming rate. Bodies
came to the surface today off the shores
of North Brother Island singly and in
groups of twos and threes, until at dusk
93 additional bodies had been recovered.
Every passing steamer seemed to churn
up the water to such a degree that with
its wash one or more bodies would be
swept onto the beach. Between the hours
of 3 and 6 o'clock in the afternoon 45
bodies, some of them badly mutilated,
were taken ashore by beaching parties.
This brings the total number of bodies
up to 725, and yet there are something
like 300 persons unaccounted for. A num
ber of those are among the unidentified at
the Morgue and over on North Brother
Island and the unrecognizable that have
been burled In the Lutheran Cemetery on
Coroner Begins Inquiry.
The Coroner's Inquiry Into the disaster
was begun today. Thousands of persons
gathered In and around the Armory, in
the borough of The Bronx, where the in
quest was held.
President Barnaby, of the Knickerbock
er Steamboat Company, owner of the
General Slocum, was the first witness,
and from him It was learned that the ac
tual operation, of the steamer was under
Captain Vanschaick. who received his In
structions from Captain Pease. On ap
plication of the latter, he said an inspec
tion of the Slocum was made by the
United States authorities before she was
put in commission this year, saying: "It
was reported to us that the Slocum was
in thorough good order and working con
dition." The certificate of a United States in
spector was placed in evidence. It certi
fied that. May 7. 1304. the General Slocum,
was In good condition to carry 2500 pas
sengers, and that it, had aboard 2555 life
Asked if the ledgers would not show
how many life-preservers were bought for
the Slocum since she was built in 1891,
Mr. Barnaby said he was not sure that
all the ledgers could be found.
Mr. Barnaby said he had Instructed
Captain Vanschaick at the opening of the
season to put the Slocum In first-class
condition, and spare no expense. "We
spent $12,000 on the repairs."
He said the company estimated the boat
was worth $165,000,. and carried $70,000 in
surance. According to the testimony of John J.
Coakley, one of the SlocunVs deckhands,
he never had been given Instruction as to
a fire drill since he became an employe
of tho Knickerbocker Company at the be
ginning of last season. Coakley said he
first learned that the boat was on fire
when a small boy called his attention to
the smoke rolling down from the bow.
He was below, and could not tell exactly
where the boat was at that time. Coak
ley said he ran up toward the bow of the
steamer and found a blaze in the locker
where the oil for the lamps was kept.
He dumped charcoal on It, hoping to
smother the flames, then cut down the
hose and called for assistance.
Heat Drove Them Out.
The fire was so hot that he and those
who came to help him were driven out of
the locker, but they got the hose In posi
tion, and had just directed a stream on
tho fire when the hose burst No attempt
was made to replace the ruined hose, he
said, as the passengers were in a panic,
and made It almost Impossible for the
men to do anything. They could not
reach the other standplpe back near the
stern of the steamer. When the members
of the crew found it impossible to control
the lire, they turned their attention to
Coakley said he took down many life
preservers and distributed them among
the women and children. So far as he
could see, all the preservers were In good
condition. It was impossible to reach any
of the llfcrafts. because of the panic, but
one of the lifeboats was lowered. The
boats were so surrounded by struggling
people thnt the crew could not get at
them. The boat which they succeeded in
clearing, and which was filled with wom
en and children, capsized while it was
being lowered from the davits.
The witness was unable to give any In
formation as to the origin of the fire.
Tho room in which it started was lighted
by a common lamp when in use, but he
was sure the lamp was not lighted when
he found the blaze. He remembered that
a quantity of hay packed around a bar
rel of beer glasses brought on board that
day had been stored In the locker. He
supposed It was a custom for the men to
light matches In the lockers when they
wanted to find anything there.
Testimony of the Mate.
Edward Flanagan, the mate for the last
two seasons of the Slocum, who hired
the deck crew, said that the forward
cnbln. where the fire broke out, was used

and brooms. Henad one barrel of sperm
oil there, and there were some empty
barrels that had contained oil.
Flanagan satd that, as soon as he was
aware of the fire, he notified the Captain,
calling up the tube: " e re all afire for
ward." "What answer did you get?"
"I did not wait for any answer. I went
to the engineers and asked them to give
"Had you given any orders up to that
time to man the lifeboats?
"Not up to that time."
"What orders did you give your men?"
"None up to that time. "When-1 got
back from the engineers, I manned the
pipes. Then, when the water pressure
came, a coupler blew off and the pipe
burst. I then ordered some of the men
upstairs to free the life-preservers and
lower lifeboats. Then we tried to reach
the other standplpes, but wo could not
pass the flames."
Flanagan said he was present when the
special Inspection-took place.
At this point the Coroner ordered In
spectors Fleming and Lundberg to leave
Flanagan, however, said he did not ac
company the inspectors on their rounds.
He knew, he said, that 10 or 20 of the
life-preservers were ordered down by one
of the inspectors. He declared all the
preservers were stamped 1891.
To United States District Attorney "Wise
Flanagan said he had no license as either
master or mate. His duties were to take
charge of the deck crew.

A crushing blow fell upon Albert K.
Rail, an Ivory and pearl lnlayer, when
he reached his home at MiddlevHlage, L.

cluding his wife and two children, had
gone on the Slocum excursion and had
been lost. He had been at work at his
trade at Newport. R. I., and did not know
until he returned home today that his
family went on the Ill-fated excursion.

Many Inquiries have been made of the
secretary regarding admission to the pub
lic exercises at the Armory. To set the
mted of tvery one at ease respecting this
matter he can only repeat what was said
last Sunday morning. Badges for 1S04
must be secured.
Badges for any other year will not be
honored. Children or young people will
not he ptrmltted to wear badges, or to
attend the reunion. This Is for pioneers
and only pioneers. The badges are not
transferable, and should a badge be
found In ,the possession of any young
person It will not be honored. No one
under 45 years of age has any right to
wear a badge under any circumstances.
To do so Is simply an imposition, and
suc'i steps as may be necessary will be
taken to prevent It. This is a meetfng
of pioneers exclusively, and to admit
those who aro not pioneers interferes
with their enjoyment.
No badges will be issued to pioneers
who are not members of the association.
Conditions of membership will be stated
by the secretary upon application.

privileges of the reunion by calling upon

admitted to the Armory without a badge

"There's a lot of Chinook that you can't

BOTH SIDES BOUND TO WIN
TROUBLE IN THE GRAND-AVENUE
Opponents of the Rev. J. H. Gibson
Are Determined to Make Him
Resign as Pastor.
Opponents of the Rev. J. H. Gibson, D.
D., of the Grand-Avenue United Presby
terian Church, have taken a new tack In
their movement against the pastor, stat
ing that they will withdraw their mem
bership and support on the first of July,
if he does not resign. At that time Dr.
Gibson will enter on another year ac
cording to his assignment by the Home
Mission Board. W. E. Spicer and about
25 other members have signed a with
drawal letter, which will be sent to the
moderator of the Oregon Presbytery and
the Home Mission Society today.
The complications surrounding this af
fair are remarkable, and the outcome
can" only be conjectured. First, the
presbyterj' supports the pastor against
the opposition of the elders In the Port
land meeting, but at the session at Oak
vllle, that body swings clear around and
not only dismisses the pastor, but ordera
the church disorganized. On the heels
of all this the Home Mission Society ap- i
beginning next July. Now comes this last
movement on the" part of a considerable
number to withdraw their support entirely
from the church and pastor and
thus reduce the revenues to a minimum
by splitting the membership. Through all
these complications and ramifications of
ecclesiastic law, agreements have several
times been signed by the parties to the
row and peace declared for the good of
the church, only to be,broken soon after
wards and war resumed fiercer than ever.
It is claimed by those who have signed
the withdrawal letter that the reappoint
ment of Dr. Gibson pastor for another
year from July 1. by the Home Mission
Board,, had a string to it and that he
was not expected to accept it. However,
Dr. Gibson Is staying right along and
preaching every Spnday from the same
pulpit and expects to remain during the
"How can he remain when we withdraw
support?" said one who had signed the
withdrawal letter. "Besides the church is
"It will be ajl right for the disturbing
element to get out. We'll have peace
then and a prosperous church," " says a
member on the other side.

THE STORY OF
A PERSONAL WORD BY THOMAS W. LAWS ON AND A
STATEMENT BY THE PUBLISHERS OP
The Personal Word by Mr. Lawson
Personally I know that one hundred millions of dollars were
lost, thirty men committed suicide, and twenty previously reputable
citizens went to the penitentiary, directly because of Amalgamated.
It was largely because of my efforts that the foundation of
Amalgamated was successfully laid. It was created because of my
work. It was because of what I stood for, because I had the public's
confidence, and because my promises had. been kept that the plain
people invested two hundred million dollars of their savings, and it
was because of trickery and broken promises that the public lost the
enormous sums they did.
My motives for writing the Story of Amalgamated are mani
fold : I have unwittingly been made the instrument by which thou
sands upon thousands of investors in America and Europe have been
plundered. I wish them to know my position as to the past, that
they may acquit me of intentional wrong-doing; as to the present,
that they may know that I am doing all in my power to right the
wrongs that have been committed; and as to the future, thatjiey
may see how I propose to compel restitution.
