A swi saw a a a a a a lights maybe bid nothing officers of the californian did not think rockets were distress signals. Evade pointed questions lord Mersey indignant Over admission declares his belief that ii the vessel was the titanic. He thought they ought to have seen her signals. That was the Only thing that worried him. He was positive however that the vessel they saw was not the titanic As it was impossible to mistake a ship like her. Capt. Lord denied that he had told the United states senatorial commission that he ordered the operator at 1 of clock to Call the titanic. If the operator had been called he would have heard the titanic a . In reply to lord Mersey witness said there was no reference in the log to a a a mysterious capt. Lord in reply to his own counsel said a a a while it would be dangerous to go through ice if i had known the titanic was sinking i should certainly have done so although i do not believe i could have reached her in there was a considerable increase of Public interest in the inquiry to Day.

They were excluded from court while Cape lord gave his testimony and their evidence was materially different in Lime Points from that of the commander of the vessel. All of them insisted however that the vessel could not have been the titanic As it was not so Large but they were unable to answer questions and suggest what vessel it was As they had not heard of her since. Possibly the most significant evidence yta.8 that Given by Stone the second off cer who was on the Bridge at the time the rockets were fired he said that when he took the watch he could see the Masthead and red lights and a few indistinct lights of a Steamer about five Miles away. Later the vessel fired eight White rockets. they a Strese signals might have been anything. The Steamer might have been communicating with some other vessel a giving a warning of icebergs or trying to reply to the californians Morse signals. it occur to you that they wore distress signals i heard that the titanic had gone Down it occurred to that they might have been distress signals but still i did not believe that they came from that vessel but from a smaller vessel which was near. A a what did you think a a a a a were being sent up for a asked lord Mersey. Stone thought that. A ship was in trouble but that she steamed away. He told the Captain. The rockets might have come from a Steamer further away than the one they saw although As the bearing of the rockets altered at the same time As the Steamer steamed away it was evident they came from her. The Steamer lust faded away. She did not out of sight As if she were sinking. When he Ismay aids sailors widows will provide pensions for those who lose husbands at sea.

A no a said referring to the rockets lord Mersey asked a a did not the very thing happen that you had been taught indicated distress a a a yes a was stones answer. Lord Mersey a two need not press the Libatter the president of the court had previously said during the exam nation that the impression was on his mind that the Steamer seen was the titanic Gibson the apprentice who was on the i Ridge of the californian the night of the disaster said that he could not see the outlines of the Steamer which was dying nearby but Only the Glare of her us Hub. Lord Mersey asked a would not the dare of her lights indicate that the vessel was a passenger Steamer a the witness did not reply to this question but said that while watching the Steamer which was firing rockets the second officer remarked that the Steamer a was not firing rockets at sea for nothing and that she appeared to be very queer opt of the water and seemed to have a heavy list to starboard.

Cape lord was asked Early in his whether his third officer had not seen two Masthead lights during the night. Capt. Lord said the third officer told him so the next Day but both he the Captain and the second officer saw Ohio one Masthead Light. Sir Rufus Isaacs explained that according to his information the titanic was the Only vessel in the Vicinity on that night showing two Masthead lights.

Of clock and went off to the southwestward her Stern Light being seen at 2 of clock. Lord Mersey a a that was the time when the titanic went Down and nothing has been heard of the Steamer you saw since that capt lord replied a a that a witness continued a a it was reported in the morning that the Steamer which had been seen during the night had fired several rockets but i saw Only one i thought it might have been a company signal or an acknowledgement of the Cal for Niani a Morse signals by which we had been trying to communicate with the Steamer. If they had been distress Sig nals i should a e heard the reports of the. Rockets As the vessels Wero Only five Miles apart i did not hear that tie titanic had sunk until the morning. At the time i thought she was reported to be Nineteen Miles away be might have been her capt.

He Trao stated that the second officer and the apprentice both told him the next Day that they had called him and in bed him that a vessel was firing rockets and that he had replied when he was called.

The officer replied that he would have called the Captain himself if he had thought that the rockets were distress signals. The second officer said emphatically that the lights were not distress signals. According to the apprentice Cape lord when he was called asked if the lights a were White. Sir Rufus Isaacs asked.

Leaders in social life one Active in Church and y. M. C. A. A one took $11,000 and the other $46,000, using different methods. Special to Tho new York times. Stamford conn., april 14.�?although close friends and business associates in ventures outside the Bank in which they were employed George s. Wilson and de Forest Moores employees of the Stamford Trust company have been for months looting the institution unknown to each other a according to facts revealed this afternoon Fol Towin their Quot attest. Wilson was the manager of the savings department and Moores was Teller in the general banking department. Both Young men come from excellent families and have Bee prominent in the social life of Tho City. They Are accused of Deal cations amounting to $57,687. The first Inklin if that there was anything wrong in the accounts of the men was when John a. Brown president of the Trust company appeared before prosecuting attorney <3aien a Carter just before noon yesterday and asked him to Issue warrants for the arrest of the two officials. The warrants show that Moores is accused of appropriating $11,632 of the funds of the institution while Wilson is charged with having embezzled $46,055.07. The warrants were drawn by the prosecuting attorney and signed by judge Samuel Young but at the request of the Bank officials were not Given to the police to serve until after the Bank had closed for the Day. Soon after their arrest both prisoners were visited by officials of the Bank who remained closeted with them More than an hour. After the conference the following statement was issued by the Board of directors the directors of the Stamford Trust company announce that owing to Deal cations by two employees George s. Wilson and de Forest Moores the company has lost $57,-687.07. The amount of loss will be reduced by the amount of their surety Bonds $12,-500, and some additional individual assets. The directors assure the depositors and stockholders of the company that this Deal cation while Large in no respect impairs the resources of the Bank which after deducting All losses has not impaired its capital of $200,000 and surplus and undivided profits of $215.000, making net assets Over liabilities of $415,000.

W kiddy Schuyler Merritt and Willard Sawyer directors. in the afternoon Wilson and Moore retained As their counsel Homer s. Cum Ming. Democratic National committeeman from Connecticut or. Cummings had a Long conference with his clients after which he issued this statement a a remarkable As it May appear and incredible As it must seem to most people there was absolutely no collusion Between tie two men. Each was ignorant of the others transactions and the fact of their arrest on the same Day is a Mere Coin from w official source it was Learned that a clue to the falsification of the books was obtained accidentally in Wilson s department a week or so ago. It was quickly run Down and the fact was revealed that the manager had been a prone lating funds of the institution. Wilson and Moore have been jointly interested in a Bowling establishment and they have Kad other business ventures. This leads Sopiel friends of both to doubt the statements made by the officials of the Bank and the prisoners counsel that each was robbing the Bank w1thout the other s knowledge.
