Women and Children Engulfed in Sea as Great
Liner Sinks Millionaires Missing in Most
Awful Marine Disaster in History Horror
Grows as Details Reach Mainland.
tiNBTV YORK, April 16. Twelve kundral drowned in the sinking of tiie White Star
liner Titanic. Such is the last authentic news received from the swarm of newspaper
men and rescue ships that rushed to the assistance of the wrecked ocean liner. Details
of the affair, the most awful marine disaster in history, have been coming into this
city all day, and each detail adds to the horror and distress. The vessel sank four
hours after striking the iceberg, in shallow water, between Sable Island, Maine, and
Gape Race.
It is now known that the Titanic struck the underlying shelf of an iceberg, auany
hundred feet high, Avhile steaming through a dense "Banks" fog. The berg which destroyed
the vessel is reported to have been several miles long, more of an ice floe than
a berg, save where occasional hummocks of .ice jutted upward. ISTo real idea of the size
of the berg cTau be obtained from the reports of the survivors. All unite in saying that
there was no warning of the fate that was awaiting them in the cold, green waters of
thet Iforth Atlantic, until the shuddering bloAV sent the great hulk staggering and settling.
The Mow was a slightly glancing one, that ripped off long shavings of the steel
hull as a jack plane rips a board.
From Halifax, Nova Scotia, earlier in the day, came the report that the Titanic
was making her way in under her own steam, and the crowds of anxious, weeping ones
at the offices of the "White Star line here cheered wildly, believing that the newspapers
had exaggerated -the reports of the disaster and that the passengers and crew were
sate. .Then came reports relayed by the government wireless that all the passengers
ha'd been taken on board the Carpathia, which was one of the steamers Summoned by
the wireless operator. Once more the crowd at the oilices and before the bulletin
boards of the newspapers on Park Row, Herald and Long Acre squares cheered. As
this bulletin appeared to be confirmed by later dispatches, particularly one announcing
that the Halifax manager of the line had denied the sinking of the Titanic, the
scenes where the crowd congregated resembled those on a night of a national election.
People sobbed their relief from the long strain. Many of them prayed. Children, accompanying
their parents, wept and then, without warning, came the black truth.
" Twelve hundred and upward certainly drowned in wreck of Titanic.'
The news was flashed on most of the bulletin boards simultaneously. The crowds
which had begun to thin gasped and there was a cry that ran through Park Row, such
as' has; not sounded there since the General Slocum burned and sank with live hundred
and fifty-two women and children. - f
Then the bulletins began to come faster. The staff correspondents sent out in
fa,st oceangoing tugs by- the Boston and New York papers had begun to reach the
scene, and their wireless reports to their papers flashed the real condition of the wreck
and the grim, sickening details of the disaster obtained from some of the survivors.
The first message following that annou icing the drowning of twelve hundred, contained
something of cheer. "Eight sixty-six passengers, mostly women, children, saved,
Carpathia. Hope Virginiau and Parisian managed save others, but not sure. Virginian
is heading for Halifax. Get in touch with authorities there."
So the dispatch read, but the frenzied telegraphic messages to Halifax broucht
nothing to lift the gloom that has settled down over the city. All that was known in
tne JN'ova bcotia city is that the Virginian is heading there and that she lias reported
she has a few passengers and members of the crew. Then the wireless operator of th-Olympic,
another ""White Star steamer, sent the news that swept awav the hone the
other message had caused to spring into life. v
When the steamer struck the berg, the great bulkheads forward exploded under
the water pressure like so many guns. The water swept aft, engulfing the steerage
passengers, drowning them like rats in a hole, as the' scrambled and struggled to .
reach the upper decks. The elevators Avith which the steamer was equipped failed to
work and jammed, and numbers were caught in them between decks and drowned.
In the first cabin the scenes of horror were almost as bad. There was more than
half a billion dollars represented by the wealth of the first cabin passengers, hut it
could not save some of thorn. Benjamin Guggenheim, one of the five famous copper
millionaires, was on board. George Wid'iner, son of Peter Widener, traction magnate
of Philadelphia, partner of .Tudee O'Brien and Thomas Fortune Rvan in manv
schemes of high finance, "was returning home after a tripto Europe, where he had been
studying conditions. Isidor Straus, 'multi-millionaire and philanthropist, was on
board, and is- reported to have been drowned. Charles Hayes, president of the Grand
Trunk railroad, and a millionaire, is another who is reported missing. Jacques
the author, and Dr. Washington Dod?;e, of San Francisco, also are among those
reported gone. Herman Kleber of Portland and Col. Washington Roebling, son of the
famous engineer of tho Brooklyn bridge, are said to be drowned.
