THRILLING STORY OF COLLI-!the Baltic, almost 100 miles
SION OP GREAT VESSELS
The Call for Help Made by Wire-
less Telegraphy Nobly
Last Saturday morning a wire-
less message announced that
the White Star steamer Republic,
one day out from New York and
bound for Mediterranean points
with "61 persons on board, had
been rammed by an unknown
vessel and was sinking.
The Republic was about 25
away from lier sister ship and.
defying the fate held out by the
black fog she was soon on her
way at full speed on her mission
, of mercy.
La Lorraine, nearing port with
her hundreds of passengers, was
tho next to hear the cry of dis-
tress and without a moment's
hesitation lier captain put her
about and went speeding back to
the aid of the vessel from which
a few hours before she left where
all was well.

Asks Legislature Not to Tamper
With the Law.
The Oklahoma Anti Saloon
League in state convention at
Guthrie last week adopted resolu-
tions declaring in favor of the
statg prohibitory law, including
the dispensary features, as pass-
ed by the first legislature and
interpreted by the supreme
court of the state, interpreting
the recent vote on the dispensary
system as not expressing the in-
tention of the voters to repeal
the dispensary system, but as
opposing the extension of the
local dispensaries to towns of
less than 2,000 people as a con-
The resolutions express the
belief that the progress in prohi
bition enforcement has b„en as
reat as could bo expected and
asks tho legislature not to pass
any laws tampering with the
present prohibitory law until it
has been given a thorough test.
Opposition to any restrictions
that will deprive the citizen of
tho right to legally purchase in-
toxicating liquors for medical,
mechanical and scientific pur-
poses is opposed by the league.
The resolutions state that

passengers were asleep.
A heavy fog had prevailed for
two days and the sea was calm.
The vessel was proceeding at
half speed, when the Florida
struck the Republic a crushing
blow almost amidship and the
sea poured into the hold of the
Republic. Promptly the water
tight compartments were closed
and the screw of the modern
building held them, and the
ship was kept afloat for many
hours and not a life was lost as
the result of the collisions. A
moment later the water poured
into the hold of the Republic
from the ragged hole in her side
and drowned the tires in the
boiler room and soon flooded the

identity of the ship that had
dealt a blow to them. The lives

The wireless operator sitting
in his little coop, kept his hand
upon the key. Ho felt the
vessel settling beneath him and
saw the crew busy at tho boats.
Then, with tho picture in his
mind, his hand began to rhove
and the wireless mast sent forth
the first message for aid. It was
an alarming message and t o
coast read from their tape that
the Republic had been rammed
and was sinking with all on board.
There was a long and distress-
ing pause before tho wireless of
tho Republic spoke again. L!ut
that fragmentary message from
the ship had brought to life
every station along tho coast and
back out to sea, over the very
hull of the disabled vessel, so
that her instruments trembled
with the vibrations with mess-
ages that were charging for the
Quickly came a response from
the wireless stations and although
the disabled vessel was a hun-
dred miles away the two stout
revenue cutters put to sea to
give what aid they could.
At this time the Lucania came
into the wireless zone and caught
the fleeting messages telling of
the disaster. Although she had
not heard the first call she quick-
ly replied that she was on her
way at full speed to render as
sistance to the Republic.
But the black fog hindered and
harassed them and even with
the guidance of the wireless and
the further aid of the submarine,
fog bells, they groped helpless
ly and at great peril to them-
selves for hours in a vain effort
to helplhe sinifing ship.
In this hour of peril success
came from an unlooked for
quarter. The fkfe of the vessel
which had rammed them was be
lieved to have been worse than

her bow twisted and broken,

Quickly all the passengers
were transfered from the Re
public to the Florida, but Captain
William I. Sealby and his crew

Florida would not proceed with-
out them and stood by for almost
I-: hours after she had found the
Republic until tho water forced
the crew to the boats.
