band seemed cool and collected all
the time, and told me that he would
not leave the ship until all the chil
dren and women had been cared for.
I know from the way he bade me
good -bye that ho felt no apprehen
sion and fully expected to Join me
later. There was room for fifteen
others In our boat, and these men
could have been taken as well as not.
7 he night was clear, although no
moon was shining. The stars threw
much light, which made the ocean
quite plain. There was no Ice to be
aeen anywhere Each lifeboat was
equipped with lanterns, so by them
we were able to see one another,
and orders were given to keep togeth
er as much as possible. We had
plenty of provisions. In the way of
crackers and bread. In the lifeboats.
As we rowed a Way from the ship,
which was now listing pretty badly
on the port side, !t occurred to some
of us that we should return to the
steamer, aa wo hud room aboard for
flfu-en more, at which proposal many

endeavored to dissuade ua from doing
ao. even going ao far aa to Impede
the rowers in their efforta to carry
out the plan of the more deliberate
and cool. There was a great deal of
commotion In our boat then,
Insiried on Returning.
I cannot say too much for the
bravery of Mra. Astor in thie con
nection She. among others. Insisted
that the boat be returned to the
steamer. All this time the lights on
board the steamer were gleaming
brilliantly, and we could see her
looming up silhouetted against the
darkness. She was sinking very'
fast and as we approached her the
Titanic sank, followed by two aJmost
simultaneous explosions. There was
little or no suction felt as the steam
er went down, owing, perhaps, to the
fact that she sank prow foremost.
We rowed ab.iiit the scene of the
disaster all nlpht. and picked up
elslit men out of the . water, two of
whom subsequently died of exposure,
and one lost his mind. We had noth
ing in the way of stimulants with
wbleh to revive these men. but
w. rked over them almost all night,
the women taking Off their coats and
furs to provide warmth for them.
I am sure that we saw three or
four fishing smack In the vicinity.
We knew that they were not other
lifeboats, for the reason that lights
could he seen nbov. ii.h If ti masts,
and the Carpathla had not at that
time appeared In sigh'. Some of tho
lifeboat were picked up OJT the Car

about ft :30 o'clock that we were res-

Hear Pitiful Cries.
When the Titanic went down and
the lights from I h i I disappeared,
we could bear all about us the most
hearr-rendlng tr.oar.s and crlen for
help, of those who had gone w-ith
the shin and fsm Up a sain to per
ish within our hearlnr In the dark
ness. I cannot say too much for the
noble assistance we received f'."m
the crew and passengers aboard the
f arpafhlo- Everything possible was
done for our comfort, and the care
of those who had suffered from ex
posure. The Carpathln eruiaod about
th scene of the wreck for about
Hirht hours, but found no bo.ilea or
other evidences of the disaster
The California came in sight and
laid alongside ufe. and on our de
parture by .Mgnals promised to re
main for forty-eight hours near the
scene of the wreck.
I wish to say that so far as I
could see the discipline maintained
on the Titanic after the accident was
of the very best, and I saw no brutal
conduct or drunkenness. The world
cannot help but be bettered by the
example of these brave men. who
gave their lives that others might
live.
