The' prompters of the art admiring

the two little men must face a serious

For' three days the mikado's subjects

New Orleans, Ls Oct. J7. President
Roosevelt's fourtyeventh birthday waa
ushered in by an accident that nearly,
reaulted fatally, tha one event that haa
marred his aouthern tour.--The light- -v
house tender Magnolia, .In which . the
president i wss- being conveyed to the
wsrshlp West Virginia, collided shortly
before midnight with the fruit steamer '
Ranarta- near Nairn-'. Louisiana.;.- Both
vessels were seriously damaged and went
aground on the river . bank. . Nobody
aboard .either ship waa injured. ' The
revenue cutter Ivy took the president
off the disabled Magnolia and proceeded
down the river to Us mouth, where tha
West Virginia lay at anchor. The vessel
wss boarded by- tha executive at f.iO
o'clock thla morning, amid a salute of
11 guns. '. The vessel ' Immediately ,
weighed anchor and Bailed on tha borne- v
'ward voyage. - -. is.-.-- -
When the ship struck, the president. -who
waa asleep, waa awakened by the'
jar, put on his glasses and remarked
L "It appears tha boat - haa - struck a' -snag.'
w . ' - t
He offered no criticism and said that'
ha hoped tie wouldn't have - to take a
bath so early In tbe morning.' but could
enjoy it If necessary. - Loeb aent a mes
sage . to i Washington aa follows:
"In the morning, after breakfast, no- .
tlfy Mrs. Roosevelt and Mrs. Rlxey that
the president's ; boat . collided with a
steamer. No one was hurt" t
After the Ivy came alongside, tha
president did not retire and said he-
preferred! to sit up In the cabin. Ha
enjoyed the accident hugely. It Is ssld
that the pilot of the Esparta Is wholly
to blame. .. ''' J-r, ; ', ";

President Roosevelt boarded the Mag
nolia at :I0 o'clock last evening, after
the most enthusiastic reception of hie
southern' trip, and began tbe first stag
of his return voyage. No- newspaper
reporters accompanied him and he waa -out
of touch with the world when tha
accident- occurred. Shortly after mid
night news reached thla city through a
mesaaga from Captain William Rose of
the fruit steamer Ksparta that hia ves
sel had collided In a dense fog with tha
Magnolia and asking for assistance. ;
Rose . stated that both vessels were
aground on the river, bank and said that :
the Ksparta would probably have to .
carry the presidents Party to the mouth .
of the river, where the West Virginia
was awaiting. - He reported that no one
waa Injured. From this It is Inferred
thst the Magnolia waa badly damaged.
The tnga Wllma and Woods left New
Orleans at 4 o'clock thla morning for
the scene.. Nairn is about 0 railea be
low the city on the west bank of the
Mississippi. Efforts were. made to com
municate with Nairn by telephone but ' '
proved futile. .- ; ,
"' Ivy Takse rrealdeat Off.
A message was later received front
Commander Sears, of the Magnolia say
ing that she was struck aforeslde about '
11 o'clock laat night by the Esparia.
No one . waa Injured, and the Ivy took
the president's, party on to the mouth ot
the river. Sears says that tha Magnolia
can be repaired.,
The Esparta la owned by the United
Fruit company. . who 'received a tele
phone message from Pllottown thla
morning saying that the revenue cutter
Ivy took the president off the disabled
Magnolia and proceeded down stream.;
i no teiepnone operator at umpire, rive
mllea below Nairn, telephoned at '
o'clock this morning, thst the Magnolia
passed that point at 2:30 o clock. . She
shiuld have passed at . midnight had
there been r.o accident. ," " ' "
- The president wss due otr the armored
cruiser West Virginia at daybreak, but '
the' accident, delayed him and It wss
after t:10 o'clock when he reached the '
warahlp. which Immediately.' weighed
anchor and started for the north.
