OLYMPIC'S CREW REFUSE
TO
SAIL
ON THE
GROUNDTHAT THERE WERE
NOT
ENOUGH LIFEBOATS.
An extraordinary incident occurred at Southampton yesterday. The Olympic—thesister-ship of the ill-starred Titanic—was due to leave for New York at noon, andeverything was in readiness for the vessel to depart, when, to the amazement ofeveryone, a large number of the crew began to file down the only remaining gangway. The men included 150 firemen, seventy-two trimmers, thirty-four greasersand twenty-nine otherSj and they alleged
that
th^ra was
insufficient
lifeboat accommodation, although the number, it is understood, had been increased to an extentequal to the full number of the people aboard.

Thousands Qisoard theirTrusses and are Com-pletely Cured.
All tiie important discoveries in connection with tlicHealing Art are not made by professional medicalmen. There are exceptions, and one of these is thetruly wonderful discovery made by an astute andclever old Sea Captain—Captain Collings. After
stif-
fering himself for a great many years from a doublarupttire, which the doctors said was incurable, he decided, rather than give way to absolute despair, todevote all his time and energies to try to discover acure
himself.
After making all torts of investigations,reading numerous works on rapture, etc., he made himself practically a rupture specialist without findingwhat he needed, until, quite by accident, he stumbledacross the very thing he had been looking for so long,and, not only was he able to completely cure himselfwith it, "ut his discovciy was tested over and overRgain on'Sll sorts of rupture cases, with the result thatthey also were absolutely cured, and ihc sufferers.knewthe Joy onco more of perfect health and the gloriousfreedom of going about without a truss.

OLYMPIC FIREMEN REFUSE TO SAIL.
Liner Held Up at Southamptonat Last Minute.
285 SUDDENLY LAND
Last Man Slides Down MooringRopas, as Ship Is Starting.ANCHOEED OFF HYDE.Seamen Said to Have Struck, butAfterwards Agreed to Sail.
A remarkable and unexpeeted sequel to theTitanic disasLer was reported from Southamptonyesterday.The great liner Olympic was to have 'jailed fromthai port at noon for New York. Her boat accommodation had been increased [o an extent which, itwas understood, was equal to the full number ofsouls on board.At the last moment—five minutes before sailingtime, in (act- however, nearly 3U0 firemen, greasers,trimmers and others refused to sail.Throwing their kits on the quay or carryingthem on tlieir shoulders, they marched ashore bythe sole remaining gangway. A noisy meeting washeld, the result ot which was that the men decided to remain on shore.As reason lor their action they aliened that(1) There are not sufficient seamen on boardto man the lifeboats.(2) Collapsible boats are unseaworthy.After a considerable delay, the Olympic wastowed down Southampton Water to await a relayof firemen off Rvde, where she anchored. At8.30 a tug went oiit to her with about lifty firemen, but at eleven o'clock one out-of-work fireman was the only fresh recruit waiting in theWhite Star office.The crew was still nearly 200 short, and theWhite Star office at the dock gates was stillpicketed,There was no prospect of the Olj'fnpic gellingaway even to Cherbourg till the morning.There are 1,400 passengers booked for
^
thejourney, including those who will embark at Cherbourg and Queenstown. The Duke of Sutherlandis among them,Last night it was reported that some passengerson the liner were expressing anxiety about travelling with either a short-handed crew or a scratchcrew.
DRAMATIC JQURNBY
ON A
ROPE.
(From Our Special Correspondent.)
SOUTHAMPTON,
April '21.^A sensational incident prevented the sailing of the Olympic at noonto-day.At five minutes to twelve, when all the passengergangways had been removed, and after the lastvisitors had returned to the C|uay, kits began to bethrown overboard upon the quayside.A moment or two later several hundred firemenand trimmers began to file to shore back across thecrew's gangway aft, carrying their bundles andbags, and assembled in a noisy, threatening crowdupon the quay and in the landing shed.A sort of mass meeting was at once held in acorner of the vast shed, and an official of themen's union, standing on an empty truck, put thequestion to the men wdiether they should returnto the ship or keep oft her,
He'
said he had been assured by Mr. PhilipCurry, the White Star manager, that there wereenough boats for everybody, and that the Boardof Trade had approved them, but it was for themen to say whether they would take the risk ornot.A show of hands displaying a large majorityfor staying ashore, the meeting broke up inless thari five minutes, the men seating themselveson, their bags or sprawling on the ground. Several,however, seemed to wish to go back to the ship.DEPUTATION FROM FIREMEN.Mr. Curiy and other olficials of the companyv.-ere joined in a few minutes by Captain Haddock,commander of the Olympic.They conferred in a little group apart from noisystrikers, and Mr. Curry gave brisk orders to subordinates at intervals, such as '' Telephone totown police for help to clear this shed.": "They are mutineers," he said, "for not onlydid they sign on last Monday, but they musteredthis morning, and therefore the voyage, as far asthey are concerned, has actually begun."! According to one account after the men left the-liner a deputation of five firemen and five greaserswaited upon Mr. Curry, and in the presence ofComfnander Clark.the Hoard of Trade Inspectorand Chief Emigration Officer, said they were notsatisfied with the collapsible boats.|. Commander Clark said he had mad« an examination of the boats, and was perfectly satisfiedMr. Curry then said he would give the menfive minutes to decide their course of action.They thereupon held a meeting on the quay, withthe result that they unanimously decided not toreturn to the ship.
;,
.While the rebels were shouting and jeering, a^quad of some thirty volunteers for the stokehold
J
iralked-quickly across the remaining gangway on
6
the ship, and-Mr. Curry followed. The captain had preceded them,".The gangway was then taken up, and the shipwas cut off from the shore, except lor her mooiing jcables. It was then that th- most dramatic Inci-dent of the day took place.
A young fireman woKe in his bunl; to find thatthe rest had cleared and it was too late to cross theaft gangway to the quayside.Immediately he made his way to the forepeakof the vessel and boldly slid down a cable seventyfeet long, inclined from the liner to the shore.Three thou.sand people on the ship and quayheld their breath as he became bunched togetherlike a spider in the middle of the rope. His headhung downwards, his pockets emptied, and all hismoney fell into the sea, but he reached his friendson the quay in safety.They shouted to another man up above to followhis example or jumi) into the sea and " swim forit," promising to get him out, but the man delayedtoo long, for, with a great roaring of steam from thevalves at the top of the first and third of her tourfunnels, the ship began to stir.
SEAMEN'S WIRELESS MESSAGE
Seaman Lewis, A.B., sent a wireless message toMr. Cannon, secretary of the Seafarers' Union,at 6.15 .p.m. from the Olympic inquiring:—•" Shall crew proceed Olympic, await your decision."This referred to the seamen only. Of course,the answer given was a diplomatic one." Sailors mu^t not say ' 1 shan't' when they aretold to work," explained one of the firemen'sspokesmen to me, "but if they all sit on theirfynnks and say, 'I can't,' the only thing thatcan be done with them is to sign oft their articlesand put them on a shilling a month pay, discliarg-ing them at the first port of call."At midnight it w'as stated that all ranks belowboatswain's mate struck on the Olympic, but afterwards agreed to .sail.
MEN WANT WOODEN BOATS.
Mr. Cannon, the secretary of the Seafarers'Union here, tells me that altogether 285 men cameashore at the last moment,There were l.W firemen, seventy-two trimmers,thirty-four greasers and twenty-nine storekeepers,fan-oilers, storekeepers' assistants and refrigeratorattendants." The twenty engineers from other ships whowent on board to act as firemen," he said, " can't dothe work of 2^5 men. They could only help gether to Ryde." A deputation from this union went to the WhiteStar Line last night and complained about the boatsand the sailors being too few for the boats on board." The company promised four more sailors,making forty-two instead of thirty-eight, but whatgood are forty-two for forty-four boats and rafts?
'•'
The men say that they must have woodenboats.That is the reason of it all. We reportedto them what the owners said last night, and theytalked it over tliis morning among themselves." At sailing time they simply came off when theyfound there were only sixteen wooden boats onboard. They say that ot the forty collapsibles senton board sixteen were rejected by the Board otTrade and put back on the quay where anybodycan see them now.1N5I»ECT0H SATISFIED,Captain Clark, the Board of Trade inspector,said to me
:
" I am not only satisfied that the boats on boardare sufficient for all the passengers and crew nowon board, but I found the crews of the boats thismorning efficient, and I have "given my sanctionfor the ship to proceed."One of the firemen told me that some of thecollapsible boats were unsatisfactory, but CaptainClark assured me that certainly none of the boatson the ship were in a faulty condition.He had one wooden boat and one collapsiblelowered to the water, manned and rowed before hewould certify the ship,It was about half-past one when the Olympicbegan to move, being led by a powerful tug.Simultaneously telegrams were dispatched toCowes and Portsmouth for firemen and trimmers,and it was understood that the Olympic wouldanchor between Netley and Cowcs till sufficientmen were available,THUMB THROUGH COLLAPSIBLE." We demanded wooden boats for everybody yesterday," said one of their spokesmen to me tonight. " We did not get them, so we refused tosail."Why, some of these collapsibles sent to theOlympic have the date 1902 on them and havenever been in the water. Ten years of storagemust have perished the collapsible material."One of us poked his thumb through it thismorning,"We are not cowards. We are doing a nationalservice in drawing attention to the inadequacy ofthese makeshift boats,"
ARE OLYMPIC FIREMEN DESERTERS?
Have the stokers who left the Olympic committed a punishable offence? Can they be prosecuted as deserters?The legal position as between shipowners andemployees was kindly explained to
Tfie DailyMirror
yesterday by an experienced official'of theShipping Federation, Ltd." Under the Merchant Shipping Act shipownershave the power to prosecute seamen who deserttheir ship when they have signed on for a voyage,"he said."The firemen, trimmers and greasers who leftthe Olympic must have signed articles for thevoyage, and unless they can prove a real grievance they are punished in the usual way by theBoard of Trade."This takes the form of a black mark'voyage-not completed'—in th^ continuous discharge books which does not improve their chanceof getting another job." Every seaman has his discharge book, whichis-his most valuable possession, as it recdrds hischaracter
