All the time the wireless of the Vol?

bea-ching the sc-a for possible aur
vlvors and hojiing to firtd the tWO boats
which flrst left the Volturno, but no
trace was found evon of the wreckage.
.?md at 9:90 a. m. the stlll blazing hulk
was abandoned. lt will be nothing in
the future but a danger to navigation.
Ir spite of the ttrrific gale raging
erhen she arrived near the Volturno
the captaln of the Carmania had one
of his llfeboats lowered to proceed to
the Volturno to help ln the rescue.
Thi* was effected with much difflculty,
for even on the lee side of the Car?
mania the sea was exceedingly rough,
iim) it araa only by extraordinary ef
forts that the small craft was pre
\ented from being smashed or cap

Tne Carmanla's Iifeboat. ln eharge of
Fir?t Offlcar Gardiner, made a gallant
but futlle attempt to get alongside the
doorned Volturno. After two hours'
Lattle with the waves, in whlch the
Iifeboat lost all but three of her oars,
the rest being broken or torn from th'?
hands of the crew, Gardiner retumed
to the Carmania, which he succeeded
in maklng without loss of life oi
broken limbs among the members of
hia boat's crew.

Captaln Barr of the Carmania then
manoeuvred hia big veasel cloae to the
Vclturno and flnally got the Carmanla's
bow within a hundred feet of the Vol
turno's stern. lt was found imposal
bb. however, to east a line on board
th" Volturno or to get anybody off.
lt was a terrifying sight for the paa
aeiigers and crew of the Carmania to
eee so cloae to them the hundreda of
passengers, includinsr women and chil
dren, in horroratricken fear on the
decka of the Volturno and yet be un?
able to help them.
Most of the passengers got into the
Volturno's lifeboata, but a hundred of
them had gathered at the after end of
th.? burning vessel, whose crew at the
aame time contlnued in vain to flght
