and the repre-entallvei of the. press
will be admitted to the deck.
In order that an many bodies as pos.
alble may be prepared for burial helorc
the Mackay-Bennett reaches Halifax,
1: was suggested to-nlcht that about
twenty cmbalmcra he sent out on a]
spcc'al boat to meet tho death ship.
The matter was taken up with tho
White Star officials, who viewed ill
with favor and Bent a wireless to
Captain l>ar<inor, asking how many
additional tn?n h? could accommodate.
There Is now here a staff of thirty- I
four ombalmers an,) twenty-five as?
sistants, who could he sent out to
meet the Mackny-Bennett.
If Captain Dardner can accommo?
date these men they will leave Hall
fax In the morning on tho steamer
Seal, The two ships would met about
fourteen hours from Halifax, which
would give thorn ample llmo to pre
pare practically every body for burial.
This would eliminate any oclay after
reaching port. It would mean that
upon the arrival of the MaCkny-Ben-i
nett the bodies already identified would
he ready for the forwarding to the
homes of their rcltalvcs.
A wireless received from the
Msekay-Bennett stated that sho wasj
200 miles east of Sable island nt 6

Altogether tha MacJcoy-Bennett has
