LOS ANGELES HERALDS SUNDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 15, 1905.
FIVE LOST FROMCUNARD LINER
GREAT SEAS SWEEP OVEROCEAN STEAMER
Besides Those Washed Overboard,
More Than Thirty Persons In
the Steerage Are Injured
by the Waves
Many steerage passengers uponlanding today fell upon their knees andoffered prayers of thanksgiving overtheir safe arrival.
Although some of the passengersthought that the Campania shouldhave stopped in an attempt to Bavethose who were washed overboard, theofficers say that this was practicallyan Impossibility. Both passengersand officers say that the waves inWednesday afternoon's gale were th>highest they had ever seen. At tlmrs*they broke as high as the top of thesmoke stacks. An hour before theaccident a second officer on the brldjrewas struck by the descending crest ofa wave, knocked down and renderedunconscious.
Wednesday's disaster marks thefirst time in the Cunard line's historyof more than sixty years that a pas-senger has been lost from one of Itssteamers by accident.
First Passenger Lost by Accident
From the steerage passengers It waslearned that the lives of several chil-dren wre saved by a stewardess,Miss Cotes, and a deck steward. Thelittle one weivs playing about thedeck when they were caught In theswim of water and carried about theaft with the others. On the returnrush "of the wave the children werebeing carried directly toward the opendoor through which the five who losttheir lives had been carried, whenMiss Cotes and the steward rushed totheir rescue and dragged them back tosafety.
When the wave cleared the vessel,the forward part of the deck wasstrewn with injured and for hours Dr.Varden, the ship's surgeon, aided bya number of physiclan among thecabin passengers, was busy Inattend-ing to their hurts'. In the meantimean Inspection of the steerage wasmade by the ship's officers and It waslearned that five of the passengerswere missing. No further confirma-tion regarding the Inspection was givenout.
many of them received severe Injuries.One young woman had both legsbroken at the thigh, and several per-sons Buffered broken arms and ribs,while more than a score were bruisedand battered.
Surrounded by a mob of nearly ahundred angry men, Special OfficerArlngton for nearly twenty minutesfought off the attacks
'of the crowd
single-handed and held prisoner a mannearly twice as large as himself lastevening at Fifth and Central avenue.Again and again the officer blew hiswhistle, and when at last help arrivedit was all that three officers could doto restrain the furious. mob from tear-ing the little negro special limb fromlimb.
Several times before assistance ar-rived Arington was knocked downand once his revolver and handcuffswere pulled from his pockets and tossedmany feet away, but a sympathizerrestored them to him. After Arlngtonhad handcuffed his prisoner, Peter Pe-terson, two special officers respondedto the repeated calls for help and afew minutes later a patrol loaded withpolice arrived on the scene and dis-persed the mob.
Arington became involved in troublewhen he attempted to arrest Peterson,who was fighting with a smaller man.Looking around, Peterson with an oathrushed on Arlngton, who evaded hisblows and attempted to mison withhim. Arlngton had been told thntPeterson attacked the chauffeur of anautomobile who refused to give Peter-son a drink.
Peterson and other ice handlers andmen In that vicinity took up the cryof "Kill the nigger," and as the spe-cial grappled with his husky opponenthe was pulled backward by the collar.Peterson fled to a street car whichwas passing and boarded It. Arlng-ton freed himself and followed him.Peterson was ejected from the car bythe crew and Arlngton collared him.
Three shots, supposed to have beenfired at Arlngton, attracted the atten-tion of several special officers some dis-tance away, and when they arrived onthe scene they found Peterson inironsand Arlngton holding the mob at baywith a revolver. Despite the effortsof the specials the assembled crowdsurged about the negro and his pris-oner, threatening to lynch the officer.
When reinforcements arrived fromthe central station the crowd dispersed,but after the officers had left smallgroups of men gathered about andmade dire threats against Arlngton.The general sentiment was: "If anynegro policeman comes down here hewill not live long."

What Sulphur DoesFor the Human Body in Health and
DiseaseThe mention of sulphur willrecall to
many of us the early days when ourmothers and grandmothers gave us ourdaily dose of sulphur and molasses ev-ery spring and fall.It was the universal spring and fall
"blood purifier," tonic and cure-all,and mind you, this old-fashioned rem-edy was not without merit.
The Idea was good, but the remedywas crude and unpalatable, and alarge quantity had to be taken to getany effect.
Nowadays we get all the beneficialeffects of sulphur in a palatable, con-centrated form, so that a single grainIs far more effective than a tablespoon-ful of the crude sulphur.
In recent years, research and experi-ment have proven that the best rul-phur for medicinal use is that obtainedfrom Calcium (Calcium Sulphide) andsold in drug stores under the name ofStuart's Calcium Wafers. .They aresmall chocolate coated pellets and con-tain the active medicinal principle ofsulphur In a highly concentrated, ef-fective form. .
Few people are aware of the valueof this form of sulphur In restoringand maintaining bodily vigor andhealth: sulphur acts directly on theliver and excretory organs and purifiesand enriches the blood by the promptelimination of waste material.pur grandmothers knew this whenthey dosed us with sulphur and mo-lasses every spring and fall, but thecrudity and impurity of ordinary flow-ers of sulphur were often worse thanthe disease, and cannot compare withthe modern concentrated preparationsof sulphur, of which Stuart's CalciumWafers is undoubtedly the best andmost widely used.
They are the natural antidote for liverand kidney troubles and cure constip-ation and purify the blood In a waythat often surprises patient and physi-cian alike.
Dr. R. M. Wilkins while experiment-Ing with sulphur remedies soon foundthat the sulphur from Calcium wassuperior to any other form. He says:"For liver, kidney and blood troubles,especially when resulting from constip-ation or malaria, Ihave been surprisedat the results obtained from Stuart'sCalcium Wafers. Inpatients sufferingfrom bolls and pimples and even deep-seated carbuncles, Ihave repeatedlyBeen them dry up and disappear in fouror five days, leaving the skin clear andsmooth. Although Stuart's .CalciumWafers is a proprietary article andsold by druggists, and for that rensontabooed by many physicians, yet Iknow of nothing so safe and reliablefor constipation, liver and kidney(roubles and especially In all forms ofBkln disease as this remedy." ;
At any rate people who aretirl ofpills, cathartics and so-called blood"purifiers,", will flnfl In.Stuart's Cal-cium Wafers a far safer, more iialata-ble and effective preparation. ,
