LEGISLATION NEEDED.
U. S. INSPECTOR SAYS.
Henry M. Seeley, supervising in?
spector of steam vessels for this dis?
trict, had thir, comment to make yes?
terday on the steamboat inspection
law and the life saving equipment of
the Titanic:
"I have not the slightest doubt that
the Titanic was equipped wholly
within the requirements of the British
law. The inspectors abroad, as well
as those in this country, cannot go
beyond the law. Give us the legisla?
tion, and we w.ll see that it is en?
forced to the letter.
"If the law required fifty lifeboats
for a certain American steamship and
we found that she had only forty-nine
she couid not leave this port. I find
a general disposition among the
steamship lines, with perhaps a few
exceptions, that owners are desirous
to comply with the law"
WANTED MORE LIFEBOATS
Captain Smith Saw the Need for
Them, Says Chicago Man.
fhlcago. April li>-That Captain Kdwati
J Smith, of the Titanic, believed that the
Fteatner was not properly equipped with
lifeboats nti'l other llfesavlng apparatus,
was the statement made by GH-OB Marat?n,
a friend of the captain, here to-night.
Mr. Marston said that while returning
from KUTOpe on the Olynlplc In company
with Captain Smith he remarked on the
small number of lifeboats. It was then,
according to Marston, that Captain Smith
t|.nke of the life preserving equipment of
the Titanic, then under construction.
**I noH?'.?<l the small number of boats and
raft, ahourd for the heavy passenger-carry?
ing capaelty of the ship and remarked on it
to Captain Smith." said Mr. Marston.
"Yes," he replied, "if the ship should
strik" a submerged derelht or Iceberg that
would cut through into several of the
watertight compartments we have not
enough boats or rafts aboard to take care
of more than one-third of the passengers.
"The Titanic, too. Is no better equipped
It ought to carry at least double the num
lJ(-r of boat? and rafts that it >iOM to af?
ford any real protection t.. the passengers.
M. sides, there always i-. oOsune of g me
(lf t)lt. iwiatft hecomln?- 4_____***"__ or _w. pi
away before they can be manned."
Mr Marston further quoted Captain Smith
as saying he thought the lack of equipment
f..r saving StOS was not due to a desire of
the steamship line owner*, to save money,
but rather because the> bellt?.e_ their ships
to be safe.

CAPE RACE. N. F.. APRIL 16.?A WIRELESS MESSAGE
TO-NIGHT FROM CAPTAIN HADDOCK OF THE STEAM?
SHIP OLYMPIC, RELAYED BY THE CELTIC, READS AS
FOLLOWS:
"PLEASE ALLAY RUMORS THAT THE VIRGINIAN HAS
ANY OF T?TANIC'S PASSENGERS. NEITHER HAS THE
TUNISIAN. I BELIEVE THAT THE ONLY SURVIVORS
ARE ON THE CARPATHIA. THE SECOND, THIRD, FOURTH
AND FIFTH OFFICERS AND THE SECOND MARCONI
OPERATOR ARE THE ONLY OFFICERS REPORTED SAVED."
The second, third, fourth ?and fifth officers of the liner, who are
| among the survivors, according to the latest reports from the Car?
pathia. undoubtedly came away from the sinking vessel in command
of lifeboats.
It was announced at the White Star offices early this morning
that the Carpathia was in the path of an electrical storm and that no
further messages were expected for some time.
The White Star Line has arranged for the cable steamer Mackay
Bennett to go from Halifax to the scene of the wreck and remain there
until further orders to search for bodies of any of the passengers who
lost their lives when the Titanic sank. The Mackay-Bennett is now
under way. It is understood that other steamers will be chartered to
aid her in the search.
The last faint hope that had lingered in the hearts of many that
more than the 868 survivors of the wreck of the Titanic carried by the
Carpathia had been saved by some of the other vessels that hastened
to answer the great White Star liner's call of distress was dispelled
shortly after 8 o'clock last night by a message from the Allan Line
in Montreal.
Neither the Parisian nor the Virginian, of the Allan Line, suc?
ceeded in rescuing any of the Titanic's passengers, said George Hannah,
general passenger agent of the Allan Line, in this message. It is be?
lieved, he continued, that the Titanic sank more rapidly than had been
expected, and that the work of loading the boats and getting the pas?
sengers over the side had not been completed when the final plunge
occurred.
Hope that some of the passengers not aboard the Carpathia may
have been saved was revived early to-day. when the captain of the
freighter Ultonia, of the Ph?nix Line, which arrived last night, re?
ported that he passed along the route taken by the Titanic and that a
number of fishing boats were in the vicinity at the time of the disaster.
The captain said the fishing boats were headed toward Halifax.
The Carpathia has accommodations for 375 saloon and second
cabin passengers and 2,300 steerage passengers and carries a crew of
300. She sailed from here with 150 saloon passengers. 40 in the second
cabin and 600 in the steerage. With her crew she thus carried 1,090
persons from this port. The addition of the 868 survivors from the
Titanic would make 1,958 aboard her and would in no way strain her
capacity.
The last authentic word from the Carpathia came yesterday morn?
ing in a wireless dispatch sent twenty-four hours earlier and delay-ad
in some way unaccountable to the officers of the Cunard Company ta
this city. The message said :
"7:55 a. m. New York, Lat. 41:45 N., Lon. 50:20 W. Am pro
ceeding New York unless otherwise ordered with about 800. After
having consulted with Mr. Ismay and considering the circumstances,
with so much ice about, consider New York best. Large number ice?
bergs and twenty miles field ice with bergs amongst."
This dispatch was sent by Captain A. H. Rostron of the Carpathia,
and was followed an hour later by another from Captain Rostron, evi?
dently sent earlier. This message said;
?'Titanic struck iceberg. Sunk Monday, 3 a. m., 41:46 N., 50:14 W,
