he did not know then what had hap

He was standing by Phillips. the
chief operatnr. to whom he had come
as a relief after being roused, when
the captain put his head in the cabin
"We've struck an iceberg. lam hav

has done for us. You had better get
r»ady to send out a call for assistance.
But don't send it until I tell you."
The captain went away and in ten
minutes he came back. They could
hear terrible confusion outside, but j
there was not the least thing to mdl.

Then the captain was gone. Phillips
beg&n to send "C. Q. D."
Hβ flashed away at it and the two j
joked while he did so. "All of us made ;

After awhile the captain came bark
and asked what signal Phillips was

They talked for a fe.w minutes while

He found the decks full of scram

women and children in the boats.
"When he returned to the wireless room
the aerial was growing weaker and

"New York. April IS. 1912.
"Dear Mayor: What was the Titanic
doing up among the Ice when she had

"Dear Mr. Carnegie: As usual, you
hit the nail exactly on the head. They
had no business up there among the
irebergs, and, being there, they should

TO THE END
Mr. and Mrs. Straus Last Seen
Arm in Arm on Sink=
NEW YORK, April 18.— Among the
first passengers off the Carpathia was
Mrs. Paul Schabert of Derby, Conn.
She said that she had a stateroom on
the port side and had sailed with her
brother, Philip. Mrs. Schabert said her
brother was saved because she refused
to leave him.
"It was a terrible experience," Mrs.
Schabert added. "I was awakened by
the shock of the collision and went out
on deck. There little excitement,
and persons were comlnß from their
rooms, asking what had happened. Sud
denly from the bridge c&me the cry,
"Toadies first: ,. This was the first
inkling we had that the ship was in
dagger. I went back to my stateroom
and dressed, and then as I returned to
the deck I heard the horrifying cry
that women must leave their husbands
and brothers. I refused to leave my
brother, and finally he waa shoved into
the boat with me.
STAYS BY HER HISBAWD
•'Mrs. Isidor Straus, who had a state
room near me, and with whom I had
frequently talked, declared that under
no circumstances would she leave Mr.
Straus. As we pushed away from the
Titanic the ship started to go down
and as it disappeared beneath the water
Mr. and Mrs. Straus were standing- arm
Mrs. D. W. Marvin of this city, who
was on a honeymoon trip with her
husband, was almost prostrated when
she reached the dock and learned that
her husband had not been picked up by
some other boat. ■
TELLS OF EXPLOSIO.N
Edward Beane of Glasgow, Scotland,
who, with Ids wife, occupied a state
room In the second cabin, declared that
15 minutes after the Titanic hit tke Ice
berg there was an pxploaion in the ,
engine room, which was followed in a j
few minutes by a second explosion.
Max Frelicher-Stelhi, who, with his
wife and daughter, Margaret, was on
th* way to this city to visit a brother, j
"My wifp and two men entered one j
of the first boats lowered. Twelve
men, including myself, were standing !
n,ear. and as there were no other women |
passengers waitiug, we were ordered
to pet in. The sea was calm. "We were ■

WAVES HIS FAREWELL
"Mrs. "Wick said the boat wm not
launched for an hour after the. colli
sion. Mr. Wick stood at the rail as his
wife and daughter were helped into the
! boat and waved his hand as the party
j left the Titanic. The last seen of him I
he was standing on the deck waving a
! farewell. Mrs. Wick said the party

i five hours before they were picked up.
! I want to say that Mrs. Wick told me j
I that if the lifeboats had been launched j
las soon as the captain knew the extent I
of the damage every one would have
; been saved."
Wilson Potter of Philadelphia, who
j was at the pier to meet his mother,
j Mrs. Thomas Potter Jr., one of the sur
vivors, said that his mother was unable
j to make any formal statement, but that
j she related the story to him as follows:
"She told me she was in the first boat
with about 10 others and that there
was plenty of room for 40 more. My
mother said she saw Mr. and , Mrs. John
Jacob Astor standing by the rail and
that she called to them tfo come into
! the boat, but that they refused, saying
it was safer where they were—that
there was no danger. The first three
or four boats that were launched, my
mother said, were hardly filled.
FATHER AKD SOX LEAP
**I saw John B. Thayer Jr., whom I
know, on the pier," continued Potter.
I "and he told me that he and his father
I jumped overboard and clamhered aboard
a raft, which overturned. That was the
last, young Thayer said, that he had
seen of his father."
Mrs. William B. Stephenson of
Ilaverford. Pa., who left on the Penn
sylvania train for survivors, gave out
j the following interview:
"I ran up on the deck, where I met
Mr. Thayer. He informed me that an
I accident had occurred, but said there
was no particular reason for panic.
Soon after-ward, however, he advised
Ime to put on a life preserver. So I
i went below. When I came back on
deck boats were already being lowered.
I Mrs. Thayer, Mrs. Wldener and I were
assisted into one. Young Thayer failed
to get into any of the boats. He fell
overboard and landed alongside the one

Mrs. Wallace Bradford Tells
How Survivors Were Taken
on the Carpathia
[Special Dispatch to The Call]
NEW YORK. April 18.—Mrs. Wallace
Bradford of San Francisco, a passen
ger aboard the Carpathla, gave the fol
lowing thrilling account of the rescue
of the Titanic's passengers In a letter
addressed to the editor of the Herald:
'"Monday noon, April 15.—When I
reached the Carpathla's deck the first
two boats from the doomed vessel were
in sight, making toward us. Neither
of them was crowded. It was a glori
ous, clear morning and a quiet sea. Off
to the starboard was a white area of
ice. Many of the passengers w»re in
evening dress when they came aboard
"Aβ the boats came alongside we saw
they contained a very large proportion
of women. In fact, one of the boats
had women at the oars. Four bodies
were brought aboard.
"While some seemed fully dressed,
many of the men having their coats on
and the women sealskin and other
coats, others came just as they had
Jumped from their berths, clothed in
their pajamas and bath robe*.
"It was extremely cold and the suf
fering that those in the boats had en
dured for three or four hours whfle
afloat was plainly shown by their con
dition. Rope ladders were lowered
over the sides for those that could
climb aboard and ranvu bags were
sent down for the women and children,
there being a large number of both
babies and half grown children in the
"The children were taken from the
mothers and placed in the bags and
hoisted to the decks. In one' of the
boats came Mrs. Washington Dodge and
her little 4 year old son. Dr. Dodge
got aboard later, having come in one
of the last boats that left the ship and
It was a good deal of satisfaction to
me to turn over my etateroom to them."

SHIP NEAR BY
Vessel Thirty-five Miles Away
Answered Wireless, Declares
NEW YORK, April 18.—Robert E.
Daniels, a young cotton broker of 312
Chester place, Philadelphia, said he
jumped into the sea as the ship was
going down and was picked up in a |
lifeboat. Daniels, an amateur wireless
operator, spelled the operator of the
I Carpathla while it was on its way to
"I wae in my cabin dictating to a
stenographer when the ship struck the
berg," said Daniels. "The shock was
not violent. The officers who survived
told me afterward that the Titanic
slipped up on the iceberg and practi
cally broke in two. It tore out IU
"No one seemed alarmed at first and
I went on dictating until somebodj*
knocked at my door and cried that the
ship was sinking. r grabbed a life
preserver and went to the deck. It
is hard to recall just exactly what
happened. At first there was little ex
citement, for nobody believed the ship
would sink. Then we realised that the
ship was going down. Then there was
a terrible time. I heard cries and
shouting. I waited until the water
had reached B deck and then Jumped
and was picked up by a boat contain
ing 37 passengers and crew.
"I saw Astor still on the ship when
I Jumped. I saw Howard B. Case help
ing women into the lifeboats. IJe
went down with the ship."
Daniels said that a ship, whose name
he gave, was within 35 miles of the
Titanic, answered her wireless call for
help, but proceeded on her course.
"The boats rowed away from the
sinking ship in all directions, their
courses like the radio of a circle,"
Daniels continued. '"We saw the great
ship lurch, bow foremost, into the
water. We could hear the band play
ing just before she disappeared. In
fact, that band was playing almost
from the beginning. We could h*ar the
cries of those struggling in the water
after the sea closed over. They were
cries I shall never forget."
HELP MAN LIFE
American Widow and English
Girl Pull Oars Throughout
NEW YORK, April 18.—Mrs. Edgar
J. Meyer of New York said:
"It was a clear and starlit night.
When the ship struck we were in our
cabin. My husband went out on the
deck to see what was the trouble. Hβ
came down and said we had hit an
iceberg, but that it did not amount to
much. I said I was nervous. We went
on deck for a walk. More people said
the accident was of no importance. It
would only delay our arrivaT.
"I was afraid, and made husband
promise if there was trouble he would
not make me leave him. We walked
around the deck a while. An officer
came up and cried: 'All women into
the lifeboats.' My husband and I dis
cussed it, and the officer said: 'You
must obey orders.'
"We went down into the cabin and
we decided on account of our baby to
part. Hβ helped me put on warm
things. 1 got into a boat, but there
"were no sailors aboard. We called to
the ship that there were no men in the
boat. They sent a sailor down. An
English girl and I rowed for four hours
and a half. Then we were picked up
at 6 o'clock in the morning. We were
wen away from the steamer when it
went down, but we heard the screajns
of the people left on the boat.
"There were about 70 widows on the
Carpathia and all were wonderfully
brave. The captain of the ' Carpathia
and the passengers did all they could
for us. Mrs. Harris said ray husband
and Mr. Harris and Mr. Douglas
lowered the last boatload of women.
All three were perfectly calm. All the
officers of the Titanic acted wonder
fully. The steward belonging to a
neighboring cabin was asked: 'Why
don't you get a life preserver?' Hβ re
plied: 'I don't think there will be
enough to go around.' "
George A. Braden told how Captain
Smith met his death.
"I saw Captain Smith while I was In
the water. Hβ was standing on the
deck all alone. Once Tie was swept
down by a wave, but managed to get
to his feet. Then, as the boat sank, he
was knocked down by a wave and thie
time disappeared from view."
