The testimony of Captain Cousins,
of the Queen, corroborated by his
fellow-navigators, who were quite com
fortable in the Queen's cabins, while
women and children were perishing on
the Valencia; offers an admirable illus
tration of the usefulness of theory as
compared with practice, says the
Oregonian. ' At the conference on the
Queen the theory was pretty generally
adopted that it was Impossible to
launch a boat, but this was qualified by
the belief that, if a boat had been
launched, it would have been Impossible
for it to live In such a set, and,
further,- if it had "lived" and reached
the wreck, It conld. not have worked
out t6 open sea again. Over on the
Valencia, while this discussion was in
progress, theory was away below par
and the time for debate limited, so the
men who were confronted by a condi
tion launched a cumbersome life raft
over the weather side' of the wreck and
disproved the conclusions of the theor
ists on the Queen by working it clear
of the wreck and the land and carrying
eighteen men to safety, while the
. Queen, for which they were heading,
was running away. This Is a portion
of the damning evidence against Cap
tain Cousins which cannot be explained
away. His theories might have ob
tained credence, had there been no
survivors to tell I of what actually
occured in those, last awful hours on
the Valencia. . -:
