Survivors Kxpertenee Hardship.
The survivors of the Titanic disas
ter have gone through hardships of ex
posure and peril which may nave left
many of them In a serious condition. A
dispatch given out at tbe White Star
offices said that those rescued by the
Carpathla were picked up from a
"small fleet" of life boats at 10.36
oclock Monday morning. It was eight
hours before that time that the Ti
tanic is reported to have gone down.
In the opinion of vice president
Franklin, the Carpathla wHl hasten
with all possible speed to make this
port In order that those suffering '
worst from exposure may be able to j
obtain medical attention.

"Wireless Is Hnndlcaped.
Officials of the ilne had little news
to impart. Wireless operators worked
through the night trying to send and
pick up calls from the scene of the
disaster. The wireless was handi
ctped by a thunderstorm, which fi
nally silenced transmission for a time.
Gradually the names of the rescued
began to come by way of Cane Race
from tbe Carpathla and were posted.
Tiere were some who scanned the lists
and turned away with faces showing
hopes realized, but many who came
away disappointed. Repeated calls
were, made for information regarding

A wireless dispatch came through
Camperdown, N. b., sajmg that the pas

at once and that many were scantily
clad as they took their places in the
boats. This would Indicate that the
Titanic's condition was such that no
time could be spared to return to state
rooms for additional clothes.
Ice Surrounds Boats.
Danger still confronted even those
who were so fortunate as to be pot
aboard tbe lifeboats. Huge fields of
ice covered the ocean, a wireless dis
patch says, and in the darkness the
crews had to guide their boats with
the greatest care to prevent being: Jam
med or overturned. The Ice was so
heavy that the lifeboats could1 not force
their way through it and as a result
the boats became widely separated.

I,ess Than Half Saved.
After the first desperate calls of the
Titanic for help had been sent flying
inrougn space and Drought steamers for
hundreds of miles around speeding to
the scene, what seems to have been an
impenetrable wall of silence was raised
between here and the steamer. The
giant liner, so far as advices appear,
went to her fate without so much as a
whisper of what must have been the
scenes of terrible tragedy enacted on
her decks, when it became known that
of the more than 2000 human lives with
which she was freighted, there could be
hope of saving far less than a naif.

less Instruments were attuned to catch
from any source tbe slightest whisper
of hope that possibly one of the many
steamships which rushed to the assist
ance of the Titantic bore other surviv
ors than those known to have been
saved. But from noon the ships re
ported to be at or near the scene of
what viewed in the light of the prob
abilities may be recorded as the world's
greatest marine horror, came not the
slightest syllable of encouragement to
the anxiously waiting world.
