JH New York, April IS. The Cunard liner Carpathia, benriug
mil tll? survivors of t,le sunken steamship Titanic was making
HJJ - her way slowly toward New York today, groping through the
P. - fog, her wireless silent as that of the stricken vessel, a small

L f reckoning she will rcaeli her dock here not before I o'clock
l tomorrow morning. Wireless messages bombarded the Car-
f patina all last night and Joday. but with little result.
Ml Even President's Request RtE'fused.
)r Even a message from President TafL asking for news of his
! aide, Major Butt, remained unanswered, and the indications
"" are no details of the disaster will be known until the Carpa-
thia reaches port.
Mi Judging from the nature lof the few messages from the sur-
III vivors. the inference is that most of them are unaware of the
H awful tragedy that took place aboard the Titanic after she
bad been abandoned. Thus many wives are ignorant that
their husbands have perished and arc hoping they -were
Hj ' picked up by passing liners which subsequently rendered
jy service similar to that of the. Carpathia.

"The Pennsylvania railroad officials

would remain aboard the Carpathia.
A representative of IL H, Mack &

received by wireless confirmation
that Isador Straus and his wife woro
not among the survivors on tho Car

Thrilling Experience of
a Submarine Crew .
San Francisco. April IS Eight
members of the crew of tho submarine
boat Carp drank champagne on tho
bottom of the ocean yesterday and
then won a toss with death,
A cable caught in a hawse pipe had
Imprisoned them for an hour and a
half at a depth of 20,0 feet, farther
under the waves than a diving vessel
ever had gone before.
No Hope of Freeing Cable.
There whs no hopo of freeing tho
cable The onh chance lay in using
the compressed air in tho submarine
to force out the 26 tons of water in
the submerging tanks to give tho boat
sufficient buoyancy to tear It loose. If
tHe jammed cable still held tho men
would suffocate. The compressed air
was soht into the tanks.
Big Tube Rocked and Groaned.
The big steel tube rocked and
groaned for an instant and was still
again The prisoners looked at tho
pressure gauge and saw that the ves
sel was still fast. Lieutenant B. S.
Smith, In command, ordered the men
to run back and forth along tho alley
of the Ill-foot craft In the hope of
startln gvlbrajions that would releaso
the boat. Suddenly the men were
thrown on their backs and the pres
sure gauges fell.
Shot 100 Feet Into Air.
The ere wof a large ship overhead
saw a large fish nose shoot 100 feet
into the air and then tho submarine
righted itsolf on the surface. The
men wcro bruised, but not seriously
The submarine was drawn under
the water b.v a cable attached to a
ten-ton weight at the bottom of tho
bay in a special government test to
determine tho pressure resitting pow -er
of the boat at great denth.
Windlass Would Not Work
Tho Carp's windings was used In
drawing the craft down. The men
had orders to remain at the bottom
ton minutes. Champagne and sand
wiches had boon provided and thp
men drank a last glass, heforo re
versing the windlass to go to tho sur
face. The windlass would not work,
hut this contingency had been pio
ided for by a device to cut tho cabh.
The cable was cut, but it was then
that the Imprisoned men realized that
the other cable had caught in tbe
