J. P. MORGAN SAILS ON THE BALTIC

New-York Tribune

Reported Conference with Railroad Presidents---Steamer Sinks Barge
---
J. Pierpont Morgan sailed for Europe yesterday on the The White Star Liner
Baltic. It was said would probably be away for several months, it was
reported that Mr. Morgan had a long conference with Mr. Newman, president of
the New York Central; Mr. McCrea, of the Pennsylvania system, and Mr.
Mellen, of the New Haven, before leaving. It was also said that each of them
will soon see President Roosevelt and discuss with him the various phases of
railroad conditions.

On the way down the North River yesterday the Baltic struck and sank a coal
barge. The incident caused considerable excitement on board. For a brief
time it was thought that the liner was injured. The Baltic stopped and went
astern; then after a thorough investigation. It was found that she was not
injured. On account of the heavy fog she had to anchor in the Narrows.

 

[Note: Although not stated in this article, Baltic's commander at this time was E.J. Smith.]
