Passengers Accuse Officers
of Being Drunk.
Oil Said to Have Been Pumped
Froin Tanks Into Ocean,
by Mistake.
(Bv Chicago Tribune Leased Wire.)
NEW YORK, Nov. 5. Seldom has
a vessel brought'such Indignant pas
sengers to this port as those arriv
ing today on the steamer Southern
Cross, one of the largest of the
United States shipping board's fleet,
which is given over to the Munson
line for operation between New York
and South American ports.
Running short of fuel oil for some
unexplained reason, after leaving
Rio De Janeiro, Captain Bert U.
Heald was forced to put Into Ber
muda, where the ship was held for
five days for oil that it took 12 hours
to put on board.
And, strange as it may seem, some
of the passengers blamed the mis
hap to liquor, although the ship
ping board vessels were supposed to
be bone dry.
While no liquor was sold on board,
great quantities were brought
aboard by passengers.
Officer Drunk, Charge.
Charging that one high officer of
the ship was under the influence of
I'quor in the presence of passen
gers, Hiss Hardynia K. Norville of
Montgomery, Ala., representative in
South America of the World's
Women's Christian Temperance
union, said she was going to report
the matter to the Munson line, the
United States shipping board and
take up the matter with the organi
zation she represents at the con
vention In Philadelphia from No
vember 11 to 19.
So serious was the situation on
board the Southern Cross considered
that J. C. Sheedy, one of the board's
vice-presidents, was on the dock
when the vessel reached Hoboken,
and began an immediate investiga
tion. Although Mr. Sheedy, after
boarding the vessel at Hoboken, said
he understood the shortage of oil
was due to salt water becoming
mixed with the oil, passengers main
tained that members of the crew
told them an inexperienced assistant
engineer had pumped oil overboard
when told to pump some water out
of the ballast tanks.
Teacher Blames Drink.
Clifton A. Barker, a teacher in the
American Baptist college at Rio De
Janeiro, said:
"If there had not been so much
drinking on board we would have
been here five days earlier."
Another incident of the voyage
came to a climax on the pier at
Hoboken when Miss Norville was
confronted by Mrs. Gertrude M.
Shirk, the ship's hostess, who
charged the temperance worker
with spreading the report that she
had been intoxicated on board.
"I did not say you were intoxi
cated," snapped Miss Norville. "I
said you had been drinking alco
holic liquors. It was another woman
on board who said you were drunk.
She said you took 18 drinks at one
"I had some drinks." answered
Mrs. Shirk, her face taking on a
crimson glow, "but I never had 18
at one time. Furthermore it was
understood when I became hostess
on this vessel that I could drink
with the passengers. Mr. Munson
told me I could."

ated Press.) The sculptor Lorenzo
Caprino, who undertook to make, a
bust of the super active, super-energetic
Mussolini, has a hard task,

the telephone and received visitors
on important business.
Notwithstanding all these difficul
ties the model was finally completed
and is described is showing to a

(By Chicago Tribune Leased Wire.)
The "demand" of Mrs. Frances
Stevens Hall to appear before the
Somerset county grand jury which
is to have presented to it the coming
week evidence in the Hall-Mills
murder case, will be denied, It was
reliably reported tonight.

the medium of a friend, that she
wished to go before the inquisitorial
body and tell what she" may know of
the murder of her husband. Rev. Ed
ward Wheeler Hall, and Mrs. Mills,
his favorite choir singer, and that
she would waive immunity, was be
lieved to be a bold move for the
sympathy of the public.
The only way in which Mrs. Hall
could appear before the grand jury
would be in answer to a summons
issued by the prosecutor, officials
asserted. It is unlikely that such a
summons will be issued. ,
In spite of this the widow deter
mined today to file with the grand
jury foreman, Alfred Gibbs, a for
mal request to appear and deny the
truth of statements made by Mrs.
Jane Gibson, who has 'sworn to the
authorities that she twice saw Mrs.
Hall in Derussy's lane on the night
of the murder. ,
James Mills, widower of the slain
choir singer, said today he, too,
wishes to appear before the grand
jury. Mills doubts that the mystery
ever will be solved.
