STORY OF DISASTER
Managing Director Bruce Ismay' Is On
Board and Is Said to Be Suppressing
Father Believed to Be Among Titanic's Survivors
NEW YORK, April 17. For eight hours before public announcement
was made, the fact that the Titanic had gone down with many of her
passengors was known In thiB city and carefully guarded as a secret, ac
cording td tho statement of an official pf the Cunard Line, owners of the
Carpathia, which Is bringing the Titanic syrvivorB to thiB port.
Tho official who made this declaration is Thomas J. Stead. He flatly
refused to disclose tho names of the men who knew the secret and kept it
from the public.
"On Tuesday morning," said Mr. Stead, " a personal friend of mine
came into this office seeking information about tho Titanic disaster. In
talking with mo he said: 'Didn't you people know about this yesterday?'
I replied that we did not, and he then said: 'I knew at 10 o'clock yes-
torday morning that the Titanic had Bunk.'
" Iasked my friend why he had not made public this Information, and
he replied that he had learned It from a friend and waB under pledge
to keep it secret. I asked him to let me make these facts public, but
he rofused absolutely; so I could not say a word."
This story was first told by Mr. Stead to a personal friend and
through Indjrect channels reached the office of a newspaper, which printed
a version of it, quoting Mr. Stead as having made the announcement in an
Interview. Though unwilling to discuss the matter, Mr. Stead finally
made the above statement to correct -what he described as the "garbled
verdon" attributed to him.
Quickly following this statement came a rumor that J. P. Mqrgan,
Jr., was tho personal friend Mr. Stead referred tOi This was em
phatically denied by Mr. Stead. He said:
"That is not true. So far as I know, Mr. Morgan wbb not In hla
offico either Monday or Tuesday."
Vice President Franklin, of the White
Star line, was asked about a rumor that
J. P. Morgan. Jr., when he called at the
Whlto Star offices on Monday, had de
manded tho suppression of the extent of
the disaster until after tho market
closed. Mr. Morgan Is a director of tho
."White Star Company, and this fact may
have piven riso to the rumor. Vice
President Franklin denied emphatically
that either he or Mr. Morgan know the
TJtanlc had sunk until Monday night.
Tho otatoment of the Cunard lino offi
cial that a friend had Information that
the Titanic had sunk at least eight
hours boforo the public was given the
news called attention to two wireless
messages received from Captain Ros
tron, of tho Carpathia, on Tuesday

weather was remarkably clear. In all

Sutherland, "that the Parisian's look

horizon for ship's lights. You have

You could havo played a game of foot
ball." And what Is more, Sutherland says
that from his instrument through most
of the evening ho wis sending out
warnings to other ships as to the un
usual condition of Ice ttoeB in the usual
winter course of Atlantic travelers.
All navigators agree that the condi
tion was unusual, that constant north
easterly gales had driven Ice hundreds
of miles further south than Is usually
to be expected at thiB time of the year.
Usually the greatest danger fromJ
derelict bergs is to do round in .May
and June, and even as late as July In
the trans-Atlantic avenue In which this
Titanic was passing.
Sutherland says that while he has no
positive Information he Is sure the
warning that ho and other wireless
operators sent out must have reached
the Titanic. He said:
"On Sunday, the 14th, I was at mv
instrument until 10 o'clock at nlglt.
The Masaba of the Atlantic Transport
line was ahead of us. The Callfornlan
was about fifty miles In our rear and
the Titanic was following the Callfor

miles. Tho Masaba was passing me

Deutschland, which I had heard was

go. Ho wanted mo to get on tho wire

what I could with tho wireless to dis

believe was as promptly relayed to the
Titanic: 'Running Into Ice very thick

A report that tho Parisian had picked
up survivors of the Titanic and had
then passed them to the Carpathia
proved to be untrue.
"The first news of the disaster I got
about 10 o'clock on Monday morning
from the Carpathia," said Operator
Sutherland. When he was asked Just
what this inessago from the Carpathia

he could not reveal It. He said It was.

There had been a theory advanced
that a berg of the Blze that could send
the Titanic to destruction might on a
clear night throw out of its own hu
midity so great a hase as to enmesh
mariners In a fog for a mile or more.
Sutheiland was asked as to this out
of his own experience. He said It
was absurd, and exclaimed:
"Why, on a clear night you can see
a berg away off by Its glitter. They
glisten like an Illuminated glass pal
ace." Captain Hains said:
"There Is no question that the course
used at this time of the year was never
so Invaded by ice In the knowledge of
even the most experienced seamen It
has been extraordinary The truth Is
that northeastern- gales began ery
early last winter and were almost con
tinuous. The result ham been to drive
the ice hundreds of miles further south
than is usual. Moreover, in the swift
drive of the great current from the
north bergs shot off the turn that it
takes off the Breton coast as mud
might fly from a wheel, and these bergs
by the score got Into a course usually
considered free of such dangerous Im
pediments at this season of the year."
Has Strange History.
The Parisian, by tho way, which has
played so conspicuous, it a minor, part
in this tragedy ot the sea, has herself
a most remarkable history. She has
been reclaimed from tho bottom of
Halifax harbor. She went down at a
wharf here eight years ago after her

(Continued on ThTrd Pace.)
NEW YORK, April 18. Because Bruce Ismay, managing director of
tho White Star Line, refuses permission, tho story of the Titanic disaster
Is withheld from the world. Ismay, who was saved with tho women and
children,' has plainly established a censorship over the Carpathia's wire
less. Today the commander of tho Scout Cruiser Chester reported offici
ally to Washington that when ho asked tho Carpathia for the story of
the disaster be was curtly refused. This, too, in the face of the fact that
he explained that the President of the United Sates, whoso personal
friend and military aide, Major Archibald Butt, went to tho bottom with
the Titanic, wanted to know.
This resulted in bitter criticism of Ismay and a fear that when the
real story does finally become known It will show that tho accident might
have been avoided had the Titanic slowed down In tho ice. Navigators
here are anxious to know wh'at orders Captain Smith received from tho
owners regarding the time he was expected to dock his charge on this
side. The Titanic had been advertised as an "express train" boat, which
would leave and arrive on schedule and with whose operation "nothing

Secretary of Treasury Mac-
Veagh Issues Order to
Secretary of the Treasury MacVeagn,
in an order sent last night to Collector
Loeb of the-port of New York, directed
that all survivors of the Titanic dis
aster who may be on board the Car
pathia when she docks be permitted to
go ashore Immediately after the ship
reaches Now York. Whatever baggage
the survivors may have will not be in
spected by the customs house officials.
If the owners ot the Carpathia inter
pose no objections, Secretary MacVeagn
directed that all visitors who may have
friends and relatives on bpard be al
lowed to board her.
The order Is as follows:
"Collector of Customs, New York:
"The following statement has been
given to the press: 'In order to obviate
all possible delays in the landing of the
passengers rescued from the Tltanlo the
Secretary of the Treatury has waived
all customs regulations in connection
with tho landing of passengera from tho
Carpathia and the examination ot bag
gage,' and as the scout cruisers Salem
and Chester will convoy the Carpathia
into port there will be no necessity for
the dispatch of revenue cutters for
tither customs or convoy purposes.
"There is, however, no obstacle, so
far as the Government Is concerned, to
the boarding of the Carpathia by friends
of survivors and by representatives of
the press, provided the consent of tho
owners of the Carpathia is obtained. If
the authorities of tho Cunard line are
willing that representatives of the press
and relatives should board the Car
pathia before her arrival, the depart
ment will, upon being so advised by
the Cunard company, authorize the uso
of a cutter for this purpose. But thus
far the Cunard company has taken the
position that It villi be Impossible for
an one to board the fclilp prior to her
reaching the dock."

New York was in mourning today.
Flags on every building, and on steam
ers in the harbor were flying at half
staff. Relief funds for the survivors
and for the dependents of the crew who
lost their lives have been started, and
within a few hours totaled more than
$5,000. The municipal lodging house has
been set aside by order of Mayor Gay

that there was reason to believe they

en and children, most of them Insuf

several hours. Then there was the
shock of the awful realization that
those they ha. loved best were gone
