; INQUEST IS ADJOURNED
Xo More Bodies Are Found and It Is
Believed Greater umber of
Victims Were Imprisoned
tu, iii Vessel's " Hull,
RIMOUSKI. Quebec, May 80.
James Rankin, a passenger from Van
couver, .B. C, and a marine engineer,
certified today at the, Coroner's in
quest Into the deaths of the Empress
of Ireland victims that the conduct of
the officers of the doomed vessel was
"beyond all praise."
"I was aroused by the noise and ran
cut." he said. "There was a big pitch
to the deck. I really cannot tell you
bow the accident occurred. I heard
the whistle blow when I reached the
deck. There was a heavy fog and you
could hardly see 50 yards. Five min
utes after the collision the fog lifted.
The boats on the lower side were in
the water and four or five of them
Sot away ar.d saved many people, j
All Might Have Ben Saved.
"I think that if the collier had kept
her bow in the hole she had made in
the Ireland's side she would have been
able to make the shore and probably
have saved everyone.
"The behavior of the officers on the
Empress was beyond all praise. They
did everything they could. The en
gineers remained below until they
could get no more steam and the
lights went out."
Chief Engineer Sampson, who re
mained in the engineroom until the
fires were drowned and the light ex
tinguished, was too ill to appear, and
his testimony was taken at his bed
side. "I was in the engineroom until the
lights went out and there was no
more steam," he said. "I had great
difficulty in reaching the decks owing
to the great list cf the ship. No soon
er had I got on deck when the boats
of the port side which had broken
loose, swept down on top of us and
carried us under water. When I came
to the surface I found myself under a
lifeboat arid entangled In wreckage. I
was finally pulled into one of the boats
and could see the collier about a mile
and a half away.
Steam Calls; Then Lights.
"Immediately before the collision we
went full speed astern and then
stopped. Then I got the order full
speed ahead but had only started the
engines when the crash came. Wa
then kept her full speed ahead to try
to reach the shore, as long as we had
steam. Owing to the steam failing us
and then the light also we could keep
the engines going for only a few mo
ments. "There was no explosion of any
kind. I saw no reason why the col
lier did not keep much .closer than she
did, as, if she had. there would have
been many lives saved. I am also of
the opinion that had she stuck to us
we should have reached the shore."
After a moment's deliberation by the
jury it was decided to adjourn the in
quest for one week. In the meantime
Coroner Pinault will consult with the
I1 strict Attorney with the purpose of
determining what may be done toward
securing the evidence of the captain
and crew of the Storstad, which arrived
at Quebec today and. proceeded to
Montreal to land her cargo.
Bodies Tnkea to Quebec
Coroner Pinault gave an order for
the removal of all the bodies that had
been brought ashore. Relatives who
had identified bodies were allowed to
remove them, and the others were
taken to Quebec
At S o'clock today the Canadian gov
ernment steamer Lady Grey, with en
signs half-masted, left here for Quebec,
bearing 175 bodies in coffins. No other
bodies have been found and it is be
lieved that the greater number of those
lost were imprisoned Inside the hull of

Governor Stays Jurors Masted Lncloa
Aanied by Coraniiaalea, Thinking
They Might Central Site.
SALEM, Or., May 30. (Special.)
Answering Foreman Ketchum, of the
Multnomah County grand Jury, which
in a report made recently criticised
members of the Interstate Bridge Com
mission, Governor West in a statement
today said the jury had told the truth
when It said he was responsible for
the defeat of Mr. Lucius as Interstate
bridge engineer. He declared that the
grand Jury foreman and his friends
wanted Mr. Lucius appointed so they
could dictate the location of the bridge
approach. The statement In part fol
lows: "he Bridge Commission is composed
of three Clarke County Com miss lon
ers, three Multnomah County Commis
sioners and the Governor. When we
met to select an engineer It was found
before the vote was taken that four of
the Commissioners favored Mr. Lucius,
one was for Mr. Fowler and oue for
Waddell & Harrington. I had no choice.
"When 1 found the Job would likely
go to Lucius, and not being able to
learn much in his favor. I succeeded
in having action postponed for a week,
suggesting that in the meantime each
Commissioner look up Mr. Lucius' rec
ord. When we met again I was opposed
to him and so were all the Commis
sioners except one. Waddell & Har
rington received the vote of all the
Commissioners but one. I voted for
Hennrlck & Cochran and then changed
to Waddell & Harrington.
"It is not for the grand Jury to say
who the Bridge Commission shall se
lect for engineer. I am satisfied that
the foreman of the grand Jury was
prompted by selfish interests through
out. He and his crowd wanted Mr. Lu
cius because they thought they might
thus be able to control the location of
the bridge approach."

"I had in the meantime given orders
to get the lifeboats launched. I rushed
along the starboard side of the boat

Nos. 1, 3, S and 7 boats. Then I went
back to the bridge again, where I saw
the chief officer rushing along the
bridge. 1 told him to tell the wireless
operator at once to send out distress
signals. He told me that this had been
done. I said: 'Get the boats out as
quick as possible.' That was the last
I saw of the chief officer.
"Then, In about three to five minutes
after that the ship turned over and
foundered. I was shot Into the sea

JUDGES SIT MEMORIAL DAY
Attorney for Bondholders Argties
Their Claim Is Superior to That
ot 'Supposed Settlers" Rail
way to Close Monday.
SAN FRANCISCO, May 30. (Special.)
Attorneys for appellants, appellees
and intervenors all had an opportunity
today to enlighten the judges on the
subject of Oregon land forfeiture in an
extraordinary session of the United
States Clcult Court of Appeals. For
the first time in Its history court was
held on Memorial day.
For the Government, Constantino J.
Smyth, Special Assistant United States
Attorney-General, argued the decision
of District Judge Wolverton turning
back the controverted 2,300,000 acres to
the United States for failure to live up
to the conditions of the grant should
receive the approval of the three
Judges of the higher court. On the
other hand. ex-United States Senator
Spooner, of Wisconsin; ex-United
States Senator Geartn, of Oregon, and
Lewis C. Garragus, one of "SSOO dis
reputable actual settlers, as he termed
himself. argued that no attention
should be paid to Smyth's contentions.
The Southern Pacific Company, the
principal appellant, on Monday will
have the last say, with William D.
Fenton. of Oregon, as spokesman. The
first shot In the controversial battle
waa delivered on Friday by -Peter F.
Dunne, for the railroad company.
Senator Spooner, who appeared for
the Union Trust Company of New York,
which holds a $20,000,000 mortgage on
the roadbed of the Oregon & California
Railroad Company, said the conten
tions of the bondholders would be
found to be much more decent than
those of supposed settlers who built
some shanties In the forest way up on
"All the extravagant abuse of the
Southern Pacific in the complaint may
be true," declared Senator Gearin. but
there are Innocent, honest people in
the world and they also should be pro
tected. As a matter of National honor
the bondholders should not be de
prived of their security."

IF KIDNEYS ACT
BAD TAKE SALTS
Says Backache Is Sign You Have
Been Eating Too Much
When you wake up with backache
and dull misery In the kidney region
it generally means you have been eat
ing too much meat, says a well-known
authority. Meat forms uric acid which
overworks the kidneys In their effort
to filter it from the blood and they be
come sort of paralyzed and loggy.
When your kidneys get sluggish and
clog you must relieve them, like you
relieve your bowels; removing all the
body's urinous waste, else you have
backache, sick headache, dizzy spells;
your stomach sours, tongue s coated,
and when the weather is bad you have
rheumatic twinges. The urine is cloudy,
full of sediment, channels often get
sore, water scalds and you are obliged
to seek relief two or three times dur
ing the night.
Either consult a good, reliable physi
cian at once or get from your phar
macist about four ounces of Jad Salts;
take a tablespoonf ul in a glass of
water before breakfast for a few days
and your kidneys will then act fine.
This famous salts Is made from tbe
acid of grapes and lemon juice, com
bined with llthla. and has been used
for generations to clean and stimulata
sluggish kidneys, also to neutralize
acids in the urine so it no longer Irri
tates, thus ending bladder weakness.

meat eaters. It Is Inexpensive, cannot
