CAPTAINS AWFUL MISTAKE
Error of Judgement Which Intensi
fied the Slocum Horror
In their roKirM of the (Utuoritl Slo
uuui horror mini .of tho Now York
imcrrt in at ull lenient in Itfi criticiHtu
of the uiiihtt).' of the burned vtts
nel. The mineral opinion is that he
lost his head at (the critical moment,
and instead of ImauhiuK tho HtiHimer
at One Hundred and Thi.ty recoud
Htrevt whon the tho was flrnt discovered,
he headed her otf for n Kint
nearly two mihw away. A hood wind
laiiil tlio spent ot ti.o Ixial tliun swept,
tho Jinnies aft, with the terrible re
sults that have been ohmnicod. In
vivid oontrant to Captain Van Schav
iek's awful error of judgement was
tho )rompt action of Captain Kowlad,
of the Newark liner, C hestorW. Chap
In, which the day Iwforo the Slocum
disaster was driven full sjK'ed on tho
rocks at Hell Uaty in ordui' to avoid a
collision which might have cost hun
dreds of lives. The Nuw York news
papers credit Captain Kowlaud with
saving tho lives of his two hund.ed
passengers by his prompt action and
it is not imputable that, had any
man of similar judgement, and with
, ability to think and act quickly, been
in command of thu Slocuui, the.ro
would have been a much smaller death
roll. Tho world never knows how
many great casualties aro averted by i
tho presonoe, at tho right Jjiim aml
place, of u man or men who aro men
tally equipped for meeting enierg
puoios and mooting them quickly.
Tho Methodist church is being pro
fusely decorated, in preparation for
tho "Children's Day" exercises of
next Sunday. Thu league room has

effect, when tho work is complete,

and Mrs. McPherson 'aro taking great
interest in tho Children's Day and it
promises to bo a great success.
