Barge Tasmania Carries Eight Sail
ors to Death With Her.
CLEVELAND. Oct. 2L-The steamer
Bulgaria came into port this afternoon,
bringing news of the loss of the barge
Tasmania off Pelee Island, In Lake Eric,
during Friday's storm. The Tasmania
sank at 5 A- M. Friday, with her entire
crew of eight men. Those lost were:
Captain William Radford. Courtright.
Ontario; First Mate George Whiteslll:
engineer. Austin Mahers; seamen, Michael
Doyle, August Ulbrlck. John Trap. Harry
Lspask. J. It. Stough.
Th6 Tasmania and the barge Ashland,
carrying a crew of eight men, were In
tow of the Bulgaria. The Bulgaria and
the Ashland jode the storm off Peleo Isl
and all day Friday and Friday night, and
early today started for Cleveland, arriving
here at 2 P. M. -
The storm came up so suddenly as to
find the crews unprepared. - The darkness
of night hung over the lake. The wind
rose with fearful suddenness, howling and
sweeping around the boats. Tho boats
were tossed about at the will of the storm.
It looked for a time as If all would be
lost The Ashland could dimly see the
Tasmania. ...
On board tho Ashland they were kept
from being washed into the sea only
by clirglcg to objects on deck. It was
seen that the line to the Ashland must be
cut. one of tho crew made .his way to
the stern. "With a knife he reached idown
and severed theline.. The end of it
dropped away out of sight. That was the
last the crew of the Ashland saw of tho
other boat. It seemed that she sank at
once. ' ' - '
The Bulgaria and the Ashland -rode the
storm off Pelee all day Friday: andFAday
night. In that, time the crews saw no
wreckage from the Tasmania.
The Tasmania was one of the oldest
boats on the lake, having been built at
Port Huron In 1871. She was owned by
the Corrlgtai-McKInley Company, of
Cleveland. She was 220 feet long, and
was loaded with 1600 tons of Iron ore be
longing to the iPlttsburg Steamship Com
pany. Tho Tasmania was valued at $20,
000, and aside from the cargo was only
partially Insured.
Tho reports today fairly sustained the
accounts of Friday as to the monetary
losses to the shipping Interests. The esti
mate places the loss at over J2.000.CCO.
Siberia Goes Down on Canadian

BUFFALO. Oct. 22. The steamer Si

afternoon. Captain Benham and the

The' Siberia, buffeted by the terrific
gale which raged yesterday and last
night, sprang a leak early today while

Ambassador Meyer Tells Needs ol
Diplomatic Service.
BOSTON. Oct. 2L George von L. Meyer,
United States Ambassador to- Russia, was
given a reception at the. Hotel Brunswick,
this afternoon by the Essex Clubman or
ganization of which he Is past president.
Among the guests and speakers were
Lieutenant-Governor Curtis Guild, Jr., and
Eben S. Draper, the Republican nominees
for Governor and Lieutenant-Governor,
and Senator Henry Cabot Lodge.
Mr. Meyer a poke of the needs of Amer
ican representatives abroad, and touched
upon thinternal affairs of Russia. He
sald'in part: -
The President In his speech, at Richmond
th other day eaid: "In foreign affairs wo
must mako up our minds that, whether wo
like It or not. "we. are a grt&t' people and
must play a great part In the world. It N
jiot given to us to choose whether we will
play a great part or, not; we have to play It;
all we can decide Is whether we shall play
It well or 111. and I have too much confidence
in my country to doubt what the decision
will be."
'All of you who followed the career and
.bread statfsrnan-llke policy of our late great
Secretary of State. John Hay. appreciate the
words of our President. All of you have
een and are familiar with the part that the
head of our Nation played In the world's his
tory, which resulted la peace.
But In the future It will be necessary for
Congress to make largely Increased appropri
ations to the State Department for diplomatic
requirements. Our representatives abroad
thould be on an equal footing with the diplo
matic representatives oj other nations. They
should be equally well Informed by cable and
otherwise of events that are transplrfng at
home and abroad., and should not be obliged
to pick up crumbs of Information through the
kindness of their colleagues or be dependent
upon the genertf Ity of ihe Associated. "Frees.
Too much credit cannot be given to Mr.
Stone, the general manager of the Associated
Prers; for tho system he has established and
the representatives he has selected at Lon
don. Paris,. Berlin, Rome. Vienna and St,
Petersburg, all of whom I know personally and
have come In contact with. They are a credit
to the great American news -association In Eu
rope, and are endeavdrlng to Inform the
American public correctly and concisely of
everything that Is taking place, without be
ing blamed or Influenced by any party or creed.
Therela another matter In connection with
the diplomatic corps 'that our Government
should consider, and that Is owning the em
bassy or legation buildings In the various cap
ltals. It Is undignified and undemocratic not
to do so.

Wild Demonstration of Love
When He Enters Yoko
hama and Tokio.
Long Lino or Victorious Fleet Will
Escort Captured Ships in Tri
umph Every Sailor Is
Nation's Delight. '
TOKIO. Oct. 21. (Special.) TA
city today is celebrating the return of
the nation's great naval hero. Admiral
Togo. The great Sea commander, the
pride of all Japan, crowned with the
laurels of the wonderful victories of
the recent war. made his formul entry
Into the city today. The townspeople
apparently are animated by but one
thought, .to do their utmost to show
Togo their appreciation of him.
In many quarters there Is stlli re
sentment over the terms upon which
peace was concluded at Portsmouth.
So far as Togo is concerned, however,
the nation has nothing but praise for
his achievement the successes that
they believed earned for thorn greater
concessions from Russia than were
granted when the struggle passed from
the stage of active warfare to that of
diplomacy. But, whatever the feel
ing may be toward the peuce treaty,
all citizens of all parties were glad to
unite in the demonstration with which
the naval chieftain was received.
Enthusiasm Over Review.
The great ceremony, however, is yet
to come. If present plans are adhered
to, tomorrow will be the great day.
Then will come the grand -naval review
at Yokohama, when Just as hearty a
tribute of love and respoct will be paid
to the lowest men In the ranks of tho
Japanese navy, the men who were bo
hind the guns, as that today accorded
to the commander on his formal pre
sentation to tho Mikado to report in
person upon his victories. The great
est enthusiasm over the coming review
prevails In all quarters. In Tokio and
Yokohama, where the scenes of tho
review will be laid, there Is naturally
more Interest in the preparations. But
the whole country responds to tho
patriotic Impulse, and even In remoto
towiis minor celebrations will be held.
Nor has the rejoicing been entirely
cdTfnhed to this day. Since 9 o'clock
Saturday, when Admiral Togo, on the
.Shiklshima, new flagship, led the
combined Japanese fleets Into Yoko
hama harbor, there has been rejoicing.
The scenes that have been enacted
haVe rivaled those with which tho
.great Japanese victories -of the -war
were celebrated. These manifestations
of public Joy are all the moro remark
able when It Is rem.'embered that tho
signing of the pence treaty has been
met with absolutely no signs of pleas
ure. But. when tho great warships
came Into view, steaming majestically
up the harbor, public enthusiasm,
which had been chilled, but not killed,
bur&t all bounds. In a moment Yoko
hama was wild with delight.
Togo Hero of the Hour.
The advent of Togo Into Tokio was
made the occasion for Just as great a dem
onstration. A special aid-de-camp had
been dispatched by the Mikado to Yoko
hama to welcome the Admiral and con
duct him to the Imperial palace, where
Baron Komura. tho peace plenipotentiary,
had been coldly received and where It
was necessary to keep a guard along tho
Btreets he traveled, lest there should bo
some demonstration against him. Togo
was welcomed with "banzals" and other
marks of approval. A guard was almost
necessary to save him from his friends,
who would almost have mobbed him in
their desire to manifest their pleasure.
Nor was all the demonstration lavished
on the chief. Togo was accompanied by a
brilliant suite of 12 Vice and Rear-Admirals,
and they, too, came in for a great
share of the praise of the people. But It
was Togo, the leader of the navy, the hero
of so many naval victories, the destroyer
of the 'Russian navy, who received tho
lion's share of the plaudits of the popu
lace. Japan's Trafalgar Day.
And what they have enjoyed so far ap
parently has only whetted the appetite for
other opportunities to give voice to their
overwhelming joy. Yokohama and Tokio
intend to really celebrate on the occasion
of the naval review. It is freely predicted
that this demonstration will exceed any
thing ever witnessed In Japan. Nor will
the demonstration be confined to the Jap
anese. Even foreign ships in the harbor
will be decked In gala attire and salutes
from alien guns will sound as sincere a
tribute of respect to the naval chieftain
as will the Japanese guns. Preparations
have also been made to give an oppor
tunity to the people In other cities to cele
brate. Recognizing tho spirit of patriotism that
has prompted the demonstrations so far,
the government has directed that at tho
hour fixed for the ceremony all warships
throughout the empire will dress ship and
Are an Imperial salute.
Says He Called Attention to 'Bad
Condition of Boilers.
MARE ISLAND. Cal.. Oct. 21. At tho
opening of the Young court-martial today
a letter sent to Commander Young on
August 1. 190G, by Lieutenant Herbert,
engineer officer, calling attention fo de
fects In the Bennington's boilers, was ad
mitted in evidence.
On cross-examination. Commander
Young repeated that, on taking charge of
the Bennington, he made a full and care
ful Inspection of its boilers. If the valves
were In bad condition at the time of tho
explosion, they had become so since ho
took command. He had called attention
to the poor condition of the boilers In
November, 1904. j
.The defense then rested. Witnesses In
rebuttal will be "herd on Monday.
