BOARD OF TRADE'S TITANIC RE

Court of Inquiry Will be Formed to
Get all Facts at Once—American
London, England. — Declaring the
statement of Sidney Buxton, presi-
den of the board of trade, regarding
the Titanic disaster to be "extremely
unsatisfactory," Will Crooks, the la-
borite leader, demanded an immediate
ami full debate of the tragedy. Its
causes and circumstances, to begin at
once in the house of commons.
Buxton has reviewed the work of
the board of trade since the tragedy
and announced the call of a meeting
of all British ship owners to consider
remedial legislation, and revision of
the board's regulations. He said that
pending the formation of a court of
inquiry he intended to ask the White
Star line to have all members of the
crew and all survivors available for
Buxton said the route taken by the
Titanic, the speed of the ship and the
captain's orders as to speed, the
searchlights carried and the life sav-
ing equipment all will be examined
It :s no exaggeration to say that in
their present temper the British pub-
lie is demanding the fullest and most
complete investigation into the cir-
cumstances of .1. Bruce Ismav's res-
cue There is no disposition to
prejudice his case, and comment is
wi'hheld in all responsible quarters,

missing. It is believed the women
slipped pieces of rags into the cell

BAKING FAVORITE CAKES.
Taper bag cooking betters cakes a*
much as It does meat or pastry. Please
to keep this fact In mind Also the
tact that you should never try to make
cakes at haphazard. Instead, take a
day or several days off from bridge
and shopping and give your whole
mind to the matter In hand Decide
first what cakes you care to make,
then reckon up what you will need
to make them of. Many a good cake
hits been saddened past all remedy
through waiting at the wrong minute
for some essential ingredient, over-
looked in the general buying.
Never melt butter unless meited but-
ter is specifically called for in your
receipt. Set the butter crock outside
the refrigerator for several hours be-
fore you need its contents—th
kitchen temperature will make the but-
ter just right for creaming. Keep
eggs cool—they boat light the quicker
for it. Always add a tiny pinch of
salt to the whites In beginning to
froth them—It makes the frothing
easier and Improves the taste. Eggs,
tt Is needless to say, must be above
suspicion. Sift flour and set it where
It will get warm and dry without
scorching, then sift It again before
using tt. Measure it after the second
sifting, and If bakiug powder or soda
and cream tartar are to be put In it,
add them to the measured bulk, and
sift a third time.
Cake must be beaten well, and thor-
oughly, if you want it firm, yet light,
and of fine, close texture. Sweet milk
helps to this fine texture. Sour milk
or cream, contrarywise, tends to a
coarse, bubbly grain.
Prepare fruit over night. If possible.
Two such flavors as leuion and va-
nilla, vanilla and rose-water, or rose-
water and almond, give to cake a tame
as delicious as It Is unusual. A spoon-
ful of brandy or even a good corn
whiskey, beaten well through the cake
Just before the flavoring— whicb
should be put In the very last thing-
will make the cake lighter, better col-
ored, and of better keeping quality.
Sift spices through part of the flour,
adding the spiced flour alternately*
with what Is left plain. Always sift
sugar, and more than once if it is
clammy Warming it gently helps to
make light cake. It should be sirted
afresh after the warming.
As I have said, paper bag cooking
betters cake as much as it does meat
or pastry. It can be done In the bags,
but I advise using in conjunction with
the bags either paper souffle-cases or
very thin tin moulds, square, oblong,
or round, or cases made from the bag#
To make a square paper-bag mould,
split In half a bag of the largest size,
crease each half gently all round about
three inches from the cut edges, and
fold up each corner neatly, clipping
the folds firmly with two or even three
clips. Brush over this mould liberally
with soft butter, taking care to cover
every fiber. Fill three parts with cake
batter, then slip the loaded mould
Inside a big greased bag which rests
upon a wire trivet. Seal the outer bag.
taking care that it does not press
down the empty upper edges of the
mould Inside, prick two or three small
holes In Its upper side, and set the
trivet on the broiler in a very hot
oven Put on the shelf above it a
shallow pan filled half way with boil-
ing water, and on the floor underneath
a pan with a little cold water. Close
the oven door and leave for ten min-
utes. Take out the water panB then,
and after two or three minutes slack
heat one-half and finish baking The
time will, of course, depend on the
size and kind of cake.
Paper bag baking Is a little quicker,
and ever so much more certain.
Small patty pans, or fancy-Bhaped
muffin moulds, filled with cake batter
and baked inside bags, will afford an
