In they piled, till the little cab
in was filled "like a subway Jam
one of the survivors Bald later,
and others were standing on the
deck. .
Off went the Linseed King,
burrowing her nose through ice
floes that made the river like an
arctic sea, hard fresh water ice.
river men said, down from the
upper Hudson and at that tflhe
being forced upstream by a flow
Hinging till and clapping their
hands to keep warm were these
men who wanted work, and the
sound of their voices floated back
to. shore lustily over the ice. i
Midstream at lat and then sud
denly the Linseed King careened
to one side, ground, it is believed,
between huge cakes of ice with
hundreds of tons of other ice be
hind it.
The frightened passenper?
scrambled all to one side in a mad
effort to right the craft and like
a craiy pendulum the Linseed
King swung back to normal and
then listed to the other side, over
and over until water rushed over
her gunwales and she capsized.
About half of those in the cab
In were thrown into the freezing
water or managed to run from the
compartment in time to jump. The
other half were trapped where
they were and death was at least
merciful in that it must have
been quick.
As the submerged launch float
ed slugglsly among the grinding
ice floes some of the freezing men
clung to it desperately while oth
ers climbed onto tipping cakes of
ice and lay flat with the cold wa
ter lapping over them. The sing
ing was turned to screams for
help now. but heard from the
shore the creaming sounded not
so different from the shouts of
song and no one paid attention.
One lighter captain who had
watched the men off and mijffct
have been able to aid them, heard
their cries, but only shrugged as
he moved closer to his cabin
'I just thought they were still
singing," he Said later, "and did
not ever go out of rav cabin."
So it wa almost half an hour
before the first rescue boat reach
ed the scene. But then they came
thick and fast: tugs and launches
and fire and police boats.
Twenty-four poor half frozen
men were dragged onto tugs and
thawed ouLin engine rooms while
being rushed to an emergency
hospital "established at a New
York pier. From there they were
taken to hospitals. Captain Roh
wetder was picked up swimming
strongly for the Jersey shore' and
taken to Edgewater.
. Placed under a doctor's care
the captain v was questioned
length by Edfcewater police and
then was sent for by the Man
hattan headquarters. He refused
to cross the river, however, say
ing that he was suffering acutely
from submersion and further
questioning would have to wait.
After the living had been cared
for the task began of recovering
the bodies of the dead. Three
were found in the river at the
scene of the accident. The others
were taken with grappling hooks
from the cabin of the Linseed
Kins where it was heached at
254th street on the Bronx .shore
after being carried upstream by
the ice.
Crowds gathered on the shore,
some of them wives and mothers
and other loved ones of the men
who had sought their last job.
One by one the bodies were
brought "n and laid on the ic
shore until there were 27 in a
long sad -ow, bringing the known
dead to 20.
Captain Rohweider told police
that there had been 62 men on the
Linseed King when it left the
Manhattan pier. and so search
was continued for the seven bod
ies still unaccounted for. Of the
known dead 21 were those of
white men and nine negroes.
A -half dozen investigations
were begun during the day to de
termine where the blame lay and
whether the tragedy might . have
been avoided.

Any attempt to force the state of
Oregon to assume I12.o00.000 of
state irrigation bonds, now valued
at $3,500,000 will meet with his'
opposition, Tom B. Kay, state

During the afternoon session

balloting all of these applicants
were eliminated on the second bal
lot with the exception of La

C. L. Starr then moved that The
Dalles be selected as the location
for (he normal school. Only three
of the nine regents, including Ful
ler. ,Starr and Bryant voted for
this motion. With The Dalles
eliminated from consideration the
regents then divided by a vote of
five to four in favor of La Grande,

Oregon where the farmers are said
t o 'be the most seriously affected
by the irrigation plans, indicated
belief that the state is morally
obligated to assume the bonds. Mr.
Kay insisted, however, that the
bondholders should take their
losses along with the Oregon
farmer. He declared that, al
though the state certified invest
ing state trust funds in irrigation
bonds, the bonds wer e thus mere
ly made eligible for state use. but
added that such action did not
guarantee the bonds.
H. B. Vanduser, member of the
Oregon state highway commission,
discussed the highway system in
Oregon, pointing out that the
state's road debt had been re
duced to $: 6.000,000 and calling
attention to the fact that a big
state building program was start
ed ten years ago.
The situation regarding the bus
anu trucK line operators is one
that must be met by the people,
Vanduser declared. These opera
tors may ask the next legislature
for a new bill regulating their
services, he said, adding that it
was not the intention to drive
them from the state as the lines
are the only means through which
many remote parts of the state
may be reached or served.

Stages and buses cause highway
damage commensurate with their
size, speed and schedule, and that
they should pay for "the privilege

Thefts Reported
It. D. Slater of Salem last night

from his car. H. H. Grady re
ported the theft of a black bag
containing valuable garments
from his car.
meeting here today centered on
Hie question of policy in locating
the new normal school. Some of
the regents expressed the opinion
that the new normal school should
be located where it would best
serve the Eastern Oregon district,
while others said it should be con
sidered as a statewide institution.
The question of policy was de
termined through the adoption oi
a resolution prepared by the sec
retary of state, which had the sup
port of six of the nine rvgents.
Tho resolution read: "Looking
forward to the continued growth
of the state and the natural tiend
of development, and believing that
facilities for the proper training of
teachers will be provided by "the
state from time to time, this board
now declares as its policy that it
considers that the action of the
people at the general election of
November 2. with, regard to the
establishment of a normal school
in some one of the counties of
Eastern Oregon, was to tho effect
that a normal school should be so
established in that section of the
state to serve as it is now de
veloped and may be affected by
future development."
The three regents who opposed
the passage of this resolution were
Fuller. Starr and Turner.
The city of Da Grande, through
its commercial organizations, has
offered to deed free to the state
for normal school purposes the
choice of three sites. Two of the
sites are within the city limits
while the third is located a short
distance, from the municipality.
,It also was agreed that the
grade school buildings at La
Grande shall be turned over to the
normal school regents for practice
teaching, and that the city shall
provide adequate water and sew
age systems. In event new grade
schools are erected in La Grande
the normal school regents shall be
consulted in connection with their
architecture and design.
Selection of the site on which
the new normal school shall " he
erected will not be " determined
until after the legislature has con
vened and voted an appropriation
to defray the cost of its construc
tion. At that time a committee of
the normal school regents and an
architect will visit La Grande and
determine which of the three sites
is best suited .to' the needs of the
The measure authorizing the es
tablishing of the normal school
did not carry any appropriation.
As a result of this omission from
the measure it will be necessary
to appeal to the legislature for an
appropriation. It has been esti
mated that the original building
u ou Id cost approximate $175.
000. Selection of a location for the
new state tuberculosis hospital in
Eastern Oregon probably will not
be determined by the state board
of control until next week. Thel
location of this institution will de
pend to a large extent upon the
contents of a report now being
prepared by Dr. O. C. Bellinger,
superintendent of the state tuber
culosis hospital in Salem, and J.
Marshall, representing the nation
al tuberculosis association. Dr.
Bellinger and Mr. Marshall accom
panied the hoard of lontrol on its
recent trip to Eastern Oregon for
the purpose of inspection prospec
tive locations for the hospital.
