FORTY ONE PERISH
WHEN SHIP SINKS
Steamer Monroe Goes to the Bottom
off Coast of Virginia, Itammmed by
Norfolk, Va., Jan. 30.-The story of
how 43 people went down to death in
the chill water of the Atlantic when
toe liner Nantucket rammed and sank
the steamer Monroe early today was
brought to port tonight by 85 surviv
ors of the sunken ship's passengers,
.rescued and brought to shore by the
Nantucket. It was a story of awful
and sudden death, sweeping out of the
dark and fog and taking unawares the
doomed half hundred with the heavi
ness of sleep still upon them. It told
how the stricken Monroe, with her side
gored deep by the knifelike steel prow
of the Nantucket, filled rapidly, rolled
over on her side and in a few min
utes turned completely over and plung
ed to the bottom, carrying with her the
ill -fated passengers and members of
the crew who had failed to get clear
of the wreck.
Tonight the revised lists prepared
by Capt. Johnson, who survived the
sunken vesseel, showed:
'Lost: Passengers 19, creew 21,
Saved: Passengers 36, crew 55,
Creeping Through Fog.
Under the thick fog that hid the
heavily running sea, both big ships
were making their way slowly and
with diffieulty in the early morning.
The Monroe, with 'Ca'pt. Johnson on
the bridge and a double lookout peer
ing into the fog ahead, was edging
under half speed to the northward,
having left Norfolk 'for New York last
evening with a nerve racking, fog
bound voyage in prospect. The Nan
tucket, heavily laden with freight and
with two passengers aboard, was nos
ing her way southward, bound from
Boston to Norfolk. Urged thrugh the
dr'ipping fog, the two vessels slowly
were drawn toward each other.
The crash came about 1:40 o'clock
without warning. Out of the gray
black fog that shut out even the
waves from view, the gleam of the
INantucket's searchlight scarcely
touched the dripping side of the
Monroe before the 'high steel prow of
the southward bound vessel cut into
her side with 'a ripping and crashing
of plates that threw the stricken ship
The Damage Done.
The Nantucket with her bow crush
ed in, backed out of sight in the fog
as 'Capt. .Johnson, seeing that his ves
sel was fatally stricken, shouted an
order for the lifeboats.
When the crash cane those aboard
the Monroe were safely in bed and
asleep. Only Capt. 111son and the
watch on (leek w. up and about.
Hut the shivering of the stricken ves
sel and her listing motion, as the
water poured through the gash in her
side awakened the sleeping passen
gers and sent them clambering to
ward the deck. Warned by the oill
cers, they huiirriedly adjusted lire p re
servers andl m1ade -for the tItled deck.

They found only the struggling sur
vivors afloat in the icy sea, cry
ing frantoca(ly iar help. Many of
those picked up were utterly ex
iausted, and unabel to help them
selves. Several had to be hauled over
the side of the Nantucket with ropes.

afloat by swimming with her hair in
his teeth, only to have her die a few
minutes after she was hauled aboard
the Nantucket. bleut L. P. Curtis, U.
S. A., was recited, but died after reach

Capt. Johnson of the Monroe and all
of his officers got away from the stnk

the ollicers and the brew of both the
Monroe and the Nantucket were held
here tonight to await an investigation
of the catastrophe, which will be be
gun !mnielliately by -the feileral steamn
boat inspection service.
E. .J. J. Newby, United States navy,
chief petty oflicer, who was on ten
(lays' leave, intending to spend it in
New York, was among the survivors.
Newby gave the Associated Press an
in:tores-ting description of ithe heci
Just Before Two.
"Judging from -my watch, which
stopped after I went into the water,
the accident happened at 1:48. My
watch stopped at 1:58 and I judge that
it was not more than ten minutes from
the time the boats struck until I was
in the water.
"I was in bed when the crash came
and immediately grabbed my trousers,
coat and cap and what little money I
had. Almost immediately the vessel
listed strongly and in going up on
(leck. I had to crawl like a monkey.
"The officers of the vessel acted
with promptness and efficiency. In an
incredibly short time all of the offi
cers were at their posts and the mem
bers of the crew not caught in their
bunks were in their proper places.
"There was no panic in the ordi
nary sense of the word, as used in de
scribing accidents at sea. There was
excitement, of course, but the passen
gers and crew all conducted them
solves, as far as I could see, in a
proper manner. Efforts were made
to launch boats and rafts, but with
very little success. There was hardly
time for anything.
Floods Engiue Room.
"The engine room was evidently
flooded almost immediately, as in a
few minutes the lights were out and
undoubtedly this caused a greater loss
of life among the passengers than
would otherwise have occurred. Many
unfamiliar with the ship evidently lost
.their way in their efforts to get on
'(leek and were swept downi in the
"lany of the passengers and crew
who lost tleh' lives were evidently
killed in their banks or pinioned there
so that they could not escape. The
vessel was struck on the starboard
side just forward of amidships and
