The I'nraillso of the Pacific was to
have been represented In the list of
passengers to sail nt an early voyago
of1 tho White Star liner Titanic, which
has been reported by tabic ns colliding
with a huge iceberg tlireo hundred
miles south of Ncwioundland Point
near Virgin Hank and In tho direct
path followed by icebergs on the gen
eral spring loursc.
H. Ilarkfeld & Co. represent tho
White Star Lino In the llnwnllan Isl
ands. Several well-known people were
listed with the local agency for pas
sago from Now York to Ureat Ilrltaln,
according to statements made this
That all tho passengers, officers and
members of the crow were saved, as!
lenrned early this morning through
subsequent cables is a subject ocr
which local slilpplngmen marvel much
Thiite who profess familiarity with
tho Olympic, which Is declared to bo
a counterpart of the newer nnd re
cently launched Titanic, sav that tho
liner carried n crew of over 800, In
cluding officers and men.
TJie Titanic represented tho very
last word In ocean-going leviathans.
With a registered tonnage of 43,000,
length SS2 feet, breadth 92 feet 'and
height from keel to top of captain's
house nt 103 feet, the Titanic Is said
io have presented nn imposing ai
penrnnco. The early reports telling of tho ex
plosions of thu bulkheads enuscd local
shlppliigmen to venture the prediction
Hint tho liner mnst surely sink. The
Titanic had been fitted with fifteen
water-tight bulkheads.
That thirteen hundred passengers
were traveling on tho vessel Indicates)
that the list was far from filling thoi
vessel to her capacity of 2.'00 passen-!
rers In the several classes.
Three million rivets wero used In
iho construction of the huge vessel Io
make her staunch against heavy seas
or obstruction such us she met with
last night.
The heavy, relufoiced double bottom
l( Is believed must have proved a
strong factor In keeping her afloat
long enough for tho rescue of tho pas-,
sengers and crow. This extends tho'
full length of the vessel, vurylng from
Ihe to six feet In depth. I
In tho construction of tho Titanic
weie Incorporated all the latest feat
ures which go to make the newest lin
er n erltnblo floating palace. Kloven
derks there weie to caro for passen
gers, crow, cargo and stores. A palm
court, veranda enfe, a golf deck with
18-hole course, gymnasluiy, sun parlor,
telephono exchange, a dining-room
seating r'0 passengers at one time,
salt-water swimming pool, tonnls und
handball courts, all added their mlto
to the luxnrlousnoss of appointments.

Since American occupation of tho

thousands of enlisted men of tho Uni

When a deep-sod skipper came into

of scientific backing for tho sea-serpent

been discovering n lot of things about
tho alleged snake of tho vasty deep.
It may not be "a snake, lnflcod, it
Is much more likely (o Jbo cither n
mammal or clso a monstrous species
of fish, native to marine abysses,
which occasionally makes Its appear
nnco on tho surface of the ocean.
There seom tA bo strong reasons
for tho surmlso that It niny bo n zeug

for all that tho naturalists know pos

paratively recent times, geologically

Important respects It answered do

Still Meander In Deep
It Is entirely posslblo that zeuglo
lons, though relatively rare, may still
oxlst: and, If so, their occasional np
pearance would fully account for tho
stories of the sea serpent many of
which, It should be realized, aro so
well authenticated as to bo lifted al
together out of tho class of mere mar
iners' yarns.
Tho most nuthorltatlio of nil pub
lished works on deep sen creatures, n
Smithsonian monograph by Drs.
Goodc and Dean, says: "It cannot bo
doubted that some where In tho depth
of the sens aro living certain animals
unknown to pcloncc, and of great slr.o,

where It nttrncts moro nttcntlon thnn

Tho chest Is relatively small, but tho

How numerous they formerly wero
